New You Tube
I've just finished a new YouTube presentation, designed to give a brief intro to Reich, and boost the sales of our bookstore. Another social experiment, to elicit some interest from the younger generation, and provide more authentic info into the madhouse called internet.
Wilhelm Reich and the Orgone Energy: A Brief Introduction http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPV-JExUPns
AFTER years of being attacked by a faction of the AIDS pharmaceutical/research community, journalist Celia Farber is fighting back with a libel suit.
Farber's lawyers filed a 21-page libel complaint this week in Manhattan Supreme Court accusing Richard Jefferys, of the Treatment Action Group, of orchestrating a campaign against her last May when she was given the Semmelweis Clean Hands Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism for an article she wrote in Harper's in 2006, "AIDS and the Corruption of Medical Science."
The Harpers article gave credence to the work of Peter Duesberg, who believes HIV is a harmless "passenger" virus and not the cause of AIDS, and questioned the value of expensive antiretroviral drugs. Jefferys and his team blitzed the Semmelweis Society with e-mails claiming Farber had altered quotes and falsely misrepresented scientific papers.
The Semmelweis Society, in turn, launched its own investigation, and concluded the AIDS industry itself has all the characteristics of a multibillion-dollar criminal enterprise that desperately needed whistleblowers. Farber, the daughter of talk legend Barry Farber, kept her award, though the battle to rescind it garnered fresh attacks, in which she was likened to Pol Pot, Stalin, Mengele, David Irving, David Duke and O.J. Simpson.
The former Spin columnist recently launched a new literary Web site called the Truth Barrier, http://thetruthbarrier.com/ with former New York Press editor John Strausbaugh. In appreciation for her work on AIDS, the artist Robert Crumb submitted an original drawing and a hand-written three-page letter expressing his despair over what he believes is the distortion of the AIDS story.
"Actually, Crumb's letter was too true even for the Truth Barrier," says Farber. "I redacted it. I don't want these pharma-bullies attacking him next."
An Alarming Video - Muslim Genocide Speech.... With a Psychotic Smile and Cheering Mob.
For years I have stated that Islam is no "religion", but rather is a totalitarian ideology bent upon world domination. Add to that, Islam is bent upon genocide to achieve world domination. Anyone who has studied Islamic behavior and history, and who is not themselves prone to mystical thinking and the kind of anti-sex hatred typical within Islamic ideology will know this, whether they openly admit it or not. It is but a short and small extension of the violence visited by Islamic nations upon the women in their own borders, who are basically chattel slaves by any measure. And most Muslims also know this, but remain silent because of abject fear to become a victim of the fanatics within their neighborhood themselves, or because they are practicing Taqqiya -- the Koran-permitted practice of lying to the hated infidel, until such time as you can gain advantage over them.
See this video, for what Islamic hate preachers have in mind for the USA, for Israel, and while not stated, for every other non-Islamic part of the world. Don't believe me. See for yourself. Make up your own mind. But don't make up your mind in ignorance, of what such hate-preachers are saying, and how the audience applauds it. If you saw the video "Obsession" -- with the Muslim preacher smacking a sword upon his pulpit, calling for the death of Jews, while the crowd of men in the mosque went wild with screaming and fist-shaking psychotic smiles -- this one is even more dramatic, but in a cold manner. The banality of evil, at its worst. J.D.
In addition to how they drag Reich's name and legitimate orgonomic research into a mystical swamp, and make it difficult for his important research findings to be taken seriously by the larger society, their mysticism and empty claim-making, and provocative actions, now prompt police investigations.
So we should not now be surprised to read THIS, from some correctly concerned and alarmed African citizens, who haven't any idea of what's going on, but who only get their information from the "skeptic groups":
Maputo - The four people accused by the Mozambican police of using a supposedly "highly corrosive substance" in an attempt to sabotage the Cahora Bassa dam are in fact members of a lunatic fringe group called "Orgonise Africa".
The four have now been named as Georg Ritschi (a German architect), Carlos Silva (a Portuguese hotelier), Tino Phutheso (a Botsanan aircraft pilot), and Joseph Ngusato (a South African self-styled "prophet").
There was nothing clandestine about this group's visit to the Cahora Bassa lake. They advertised it on their Internet websites, where they called the journey "Operation Paradise".
"Want to come on our next Zambezi expedition, April 2009?", asked Georg Ritschi on an "Orgonise Africa" blog. "Our next big expedition will be the continuation of our last great water gifting effort on the lower Zambezi", said Ritschi.
What can they possibly be talking about? Orgonise? Gifting?
It turns out that Orgonise Africa is a band of dedicated followers of the Austrian psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich, who died in an American jail in 1956. Reich did some valuable work on human sexuality in the early part of his career, but in his later years switched his political allegiance from left to right, and showed signs of mental illness and paranoia.
He claimed that he had discovered a universal form of energy which he called orgone. This energy - undetected by science both then and in the 52 years since Reich's death - was responsible for everything from the weather to gravity and the formation of galaxies. Reich built machines called orgone accumulators which were supposed to concentrate orgone energy. This would be a good thing since, according to Reich, illness and diseases are caused by insufficient orgone.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) correctly described the orgone accumulators as fraudulent, banned their sale and outlawed all "orgone therapy". Which was why, after he defied the injunction obtained by the FDA, Reich ended up in jail.
Reich's sexual libertarianism, his heterodox scientific and medical theories, and his apparent persecution by US government agencies turned him into something of a father figure for the 1960s "counter-culture", and for subsequent "New Age" cults. One of these, headed by a couple called Don and Carol Croft, spawned Orgonise Africa.
The theory espoused by this group is that everything wrong with the planet is due to a lack of orgone. To set matters right, the dedicated followers of Wilhelm Reich, engage in "orgone gifting". This involves dumping "gifts" of a substance called orgonite into the place - in this case, Cahora Bassa lake - that is to be cured of its orgone deficiency.
It is time that Lily-Livered Europe stood up to Muslim bigots - Ayaan Hirsi Ali
In 2006, I had a debate with Tariq Ramadan, the author of Western Muslims and the future of Islam. In the hypothetical event of a war between Egypt and Switzerland, for which community would he be prepared to die, I asked him. Mr Ramadan has dual citizenship. He's an Egyptian by birth and a Swiss by naturalisation. His response was one of rage on different levels. Above all I think he was outraged that one should ask such a question. He refused to answer.
Mr Ramadan, like many other Muslims, may have two or more citizenships. From all that he expresses both in person and on paper, it is clear that his loyalty, above all, is to Islam. I do not doubt that he would die for Islam, like most Muslims, and that's his prerogative. But what European countries have done is give citizenship to individuals who feel no obligation to share in their societies for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer and in the event of a catastrophe, sacrifice themselves.
In this way, they evade one of the chief criteria of citizenship. Political allegiance to the constitution of your country is the minimum requirement. It is this state of affairs that makes Christopher Caldwell's book Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration and the West (Allen Lane, £17.99), which opens with the sentence, "Western Europe became a multi-ethnic society in a fit of absence of mind," a chilling read. This absence of mind, which Caldwell lays bare, is reflected in Europe's immigration policies and especially in its response to Islam. No debate today is more explosive, more sensitive, more confusing and more frightening than the debate on the future of Islam in Europe.
Sun Oddly Quiet -- Hints at Next "Little Ice Age"?
for National Geographic News
May 4, 2009
A prolonged lull in solar activity has astrophysicists glued to their telescopes waiting to see what the sun will do next-and how Earth's climate might respond.
The sun is the least active it's been in decades and the dimmest in a hundred years. The lull is causing some scientists to recall the Little Ice Age, an unusual cold spell in Europe and North America, which lasted from about 1300 to 1850.
The coldest period of the Little Ice Age, between 1645 and 1715, has been linked to a deep dip in solar storms known as the Maunder Minimum.
During that time, access to Greenland was largely cut off by ice, and canals in Holland routinely froze solid. Glaciers in the Alps engulfed whole villages, and sea ice increased so much that no open water flowed around Iceland in the year 1695.
But researchers are on guard against their concerns about a new cold snap being misinterpreted.
On that one score, I agree, but on nothing else. He removed science journalism from ordinary reporters who used their common sense and judgement to evaluate new claims and medicines, and put it into the hands of cadres of lap-dog journalists, who never dared to criticize anything except when told to do so by the high-ups at journals like Nature. "Science News" thereafter became a stream of propaganda and press-releases from monied interests, while quiet and serious science -- especially that which might threaten those same interests -- was treated with malicious contempt.
For example, I'll always remember John Maddox as the man who sanctified the censorship of Dr. Peter Duesberg's important criticisms of the HIV theory of AIDS, refusing to allow him the right of rebuttal against malicious personal attack and misrepresentation of his ideas in Nature by HIV fundamentalists. Maddox also was the guy who engineered the smear campaign against Dr. Jacques Benveniste, organizing a cadre of CSICOP fanatics to disrupt his laboratory, thereby making a pretense and sham of scientific investigations of homeopathic dilution experiments. After his retirement from Nature, he was honored by CSCIOP -- the "professional skeptics" who include every notable book-burner and smear-expert in the world -- with a fine dinner and probably a medal or something.
This, and little else, is what authentic history will record for Mr. Maddox's tenure at Nature, how he personally helped train-wreck important scientific discovery which could have saved millions of lives -- HIV still has not been proven the "cause of AIDS" and clear factors which kill people continue to be ignored in favor of it, even while homeopathic medicines continue to work quite well, thank you very much, in spite of the smack-down engineered by Nature.
Nature magazine sports full-page slick advertisements by drug and bio-tech companies on fully 50% of its pages, but of course, this has nothing to do with the content of the articles, we are told (Ha!). I subscribed for awhile, but found its strident anti-American tone to be the straw that ended my interest. Perhaps that has something to do with Mr. Maddox' prior tenure at the left-wing Guardian newspaper.
What he did do, was to take a small but honest scientific journal, controlled by scientists, and turn it into a slick cheer-leading propaganda rag for the pharmaceutical industry, uncritically supporting every stripe and kind of Big Science and Big Medicine. The public has not been well served by this transition, and neither have authentic scientific or medical-health considerations.
So, no, I cannot share this misplaced enthusiasm for a man who was a sell-out, faker and pretender to scientific principles and ethics, who was quite more the clever politician. Certainly he was not alone in this regard, as a new breed of scientism has so nearly taken over at the directorship-editorship levels of most of our leading research institutions, universities and hospitals.
I highly recommend the YouTube video linked below.
It is produced by a Christian group, which puts their message at the end. But the statistical information contained in it is accurate enough. You can consult these websites for the same info from secular sources.
Notice how much of Europe and the free-democratic societies have very low or even negative population growth rates, while the Muslim world and parts of Africa currently have the highest growth rates -- and the lowest status of women is found in exactly those same nations, resulting in a forbiddance of life-decisions, including access to education and contraception. This explosion of population is created by horrible sex-negative conditions, where women are basically slaves, often in polygamous harem-households, with no rights to work, travel, property, much less rights to their own marriage choices or bodies. When such families come into the West, they do not change in deference to their new neighbors, and mostly form into self-imposed Islamic ghettoes, where everything is organized and ruled out of the nearby mosques. Unlike prior waves of immigrants into the West, the new Islamic migrations avoiding assimilation or cultural diffusion-dilution and mixing with the new group, as was the case in nearly all other massive cultural migrations. The reasons for this are myriad, mostly in how the mosques and mullahs are transported along with populations of Muslim immigrants... but the bottom line is, it becomes a transference of Saharasian extremely-armored and high-patrist culture from the core regions of the Islamic world straight into the more free and democratic regions, who are expected to change and devalue themselves and their own rights and freedoms, in deference to Islamic demands for accommodation and superior status. We begin to see how the American Indian felt with the arrival of the colonial Europeans, except the Europeans were a mix of culture-types, some freedom-seeking and treating the Indians with respect, sometimes even emulating their ways, while others were petty little fascist Bible-thumpers, out to crush Native American culture. That more typically reflects the current Islamic migratory wave, except they are thumping the far more clearly violence-promoting Koran.
As before, if you want an overview of this process as it happened in prior centuries, and what it meant for the world, and what the current Muslim demographic explosion will mean for you and your children and grand-children, review my work "Saharasia", which already has documented how the Islamic world is the most violent culture-type on our troubled planet:
So far, there's nothing in my article requiring retraction or change, but I salute the chemtrail cadets for making the effort at bolstering their theory, even if none of it pans out.
Most recently I was sent the following photo-image, showing an attachment to the end of a large air-refueling tanker, designed to spray stuff into the atmosphere. Here's the photo:
This same photo appears on most all the "chemtrail" websites.
That sure looks like something that would be used to spray stuff into the atmosphere. Assuming the photo was/is authentic, this does not automatically support the chemtrail conspiracy theory, as it could be used for more innocent purposes. In fact, that appears to be the case. I dug around a bit on internet, and found a website or two devoted to military air-refueling, and another run by retired USAF air-tanker pilots, the guys who flew and operated those aircraft. For example:
I emailed one of the retired tanker pilots identified at their chat-room, and sent him a copy of the above photo, asked if he knew what that was. He responded quickly. It is a specialized nozzle placed on the refueling boom of the KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft. The KC-135 typically is used to refuel other aircraft, for long-distance air-to-air missions. But there are versions of it configured to use with water only, and with this special spray-nozzle attached. Why water?
After taking off and climbing to high altitude, the KC-135 sprays the water from its tanks through this nozzle, whereupon it quickly turns into icy material. Aircraft under performance testing are then flown behind the KC-135, close to that water-spray nozzle and into its discharge stream, to see how they perform, if the engines are affected by the wet icy conditions, or if the wings or windshields ice up.
Here are some photos of this special spray-boom in use:
I've been sent other photos by the chemtrail cadets, but none was so obviously a "spray" device as is this one. Typically any kind of hollow tube extending from wings or fuselage of any large aircraft is claimed, on the chemtrail conspiracy websites, to be used for "chemtrail spraying" -- even obvious things such as the air-speed pitot tube found on nearly all large aircraft often is misreported as such. In other cases, photos of cryogenic containers used for air transport of such things as medicines, are claimed to be "chemtrail tanks", when they can find a photo of such a tank inside an aircraft.
I don't suppose this recounting of the real purpose of that spraying fixture is going to persuade the die-hard "believer" in chemtrail conspiracy theory, as they can simply claim the old military pilots are a part of "the conspiracy" to poison their own families, or that we are all taken over by morphing space lizards (my favorite part of the theory). But for the few who can think rationally, consider that I found these photos and websites on my own, after only about 20 minutes of internet surfing. The same is probably true of the leaders of the "chemtrail movement" who firstly began circulating this photo. They originally got the photo from the same internet sites I did. Which means, they know exactly that this spray nozzle was used for ice-stress testing of aircraft. But they conceal the facts from their cadres of sheepish group-thinkers. EVERYTHING then becomes a part of the conspiracy.
Recall George Orwell's point, that "Lies of omission are the very worst kind of lie". To show such a photo, but deliberately omit its real purpose is a real clever move.
Again, I would not waste my time with this nonsense, but since they routinely drag the name of Wilhelm Reich and serious terms such as Reich's orgone energy into their fairy-tale conspiracy, selling "chembuster/cloudbuster" gadgets, "holy hand grenades" and "orgonite" blobs and such which tend to degrade orgone energy research, and since they also constantly try and recruit me to their cause, it seems worthwhile to expose this new finding publicly.
Sorry guys, another cornerstone of the "chemtrail" theory bites the dust. Suggest to lay off the pot-smoking, and consider you've been had by some clever entrepreneurs. "Educate Yourself" is the slogan of the chemtrail cadets, so I will use it also.... "Educate Yourself" about how you are being conned. Educate yourself by reading Wilhelm Reich's original works, and my books and the various research journals devoted to this important subject. Get on the mailing lists of authentic orgone research establishments, and stop wasting your time and life-energy with the chemtrail fakers and claimants for shape-shifting space lizards. I've already written on these subjects here:
If you get this email, but the photos do not reproduce, check out the websites give above, and also try the OBRL-News Blog where this same posting will appear with photos, shortly after the email version goes out.
Keep well, and don't be stampeded, neither by "chemtrails" nor by "swine flu".
