LGBTQ is so Last Year

By Jim O’Neill
Given the current state of our culture it is sometimes impossible to tell the difference between real news, fake news, and satire, so for the sake of clarity let me spell it out – the brief article that follows is SATIRE.
Satire: The use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) is so last year.  LGGBDTTTIQQAAP is where it’s at these days!  (Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual, Polyamorous).  That is the new inclusive acronym designed in an effort to enlighten benighted Canadian school children.  But hey, it’s all about diversity and inclusion, right — so I say why stop there?
The Canadian(s) who came up with the new and improved LGBTQ list are, of course, to be commended for the effort, but in the interest of expanding and glorifying diversity and inclusion I have taken the liberty of adding a few more (sadly ignored) names to the truncated list of identity groups.  To wit:

  • M: Multiple Sexual Identities. The more the merrier!
  • S: Space Alien. Let’s not be xenophobic and parochial – tentacle sex anyone?  Free anal probe?
  • I: Incestual – straight, queer, whatever.  Keep it in the family.
  • T: Trisexual — e.g. straight, gay, or asexual, depending on time of day and mood.
  • B: Bestiality – things are headed that way in any event, right?
  • U: Unicorn – for those who believe they are a unicorn…or are waiting on surgery to become a unicorn.
  • D: Demonics – those who wish to get it on with Beelzebub or whatever…or believe that they are Beelzebub or whatever.  Or are waiting on surgery to become Beelzebub or whatever.

Let’s Hear It For LGGBDTTTIQQAAPMSITBUD!  You get the idea – the sky’s the limit!  Feel free to add whatever sexual identity speaks to you.  Which reminds me – add “H” to the list, for those who hear voices telling them what sexual identity to choose.

Student op-ed calls white people ‘an abomination’

“When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered…there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent.’”

Texas State University’s student newspaper published an op-ed Tuesday telling “white people” that “your DNA is an abomination.”

“When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student columnist Rudy Martinez begins the op-ed, which The University Star has not posted on its website.
The piece documents Martinez’s personal opinion of “whiteness” and “white people,” which he defines to include anyone who is “a descendant of those Europeans who chose to abandon their identity in search of something ‘new’—stolen land.”

Opinion piece in a Texas State University student newspaper tells white students “Your DNA is an Abomination.”’
Racism is being institutionalized once again.

Contending that racial categories “are used to subjugate non-white people,” Martinez complains that “in Texas, a bizarre state I have now inhabited for four years, I continuously meet individuals that either deny the existence of white privilege or fail to do something productive with it.”
Addressing white classmates, he asserts that “you were not born white,” but rather “became white” and “actively remain white” through “allegiance to a country that was never great.”

Martinez then warns white people that “the oppressive world you have built…is coming apart at the seams,” describing Donald Trump as the last gasp of white supremacy.

“Through the current political climate, in which a white supremacist inhabits the White House and those of his ilk would try to prove otherwise, I see white people as an aberration,” he declares. “Through a constant, ideological struggle in which we aim to deconstruct ‘whiteness’ and everything attached to it, we will win.”
Until then, however, Martinez offers one final message for white people.
“Remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist,” he concludes. “You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.”
Student Body President Connor Clegg told Campus Reform that he believes the article is an “embarrassment” to his school.
“I’m the first person who will stand up for the First Amendment any day of the week,” he said, “but when students are required to pay into a school paper like this which espouses these racist views, then I certainly think some action needs to be taken against this so-called reporter/columnist.”
Clegg also pointed out that the editors of the Star share accountability for publishing the op-ed, suggesting they should have exercised more discretion before deciding to run it.
“Ultimately, editors are the gatekeepers who have final say over these things so we need to look at that as well,” he argued. “I mean the rhetoric sounded like something that would come out of Hitler’s mouth—not to be extreme but it’s undeniable. ‘I hate you because you shouldn’t exist?’ I mean come on. Whoever let that type of material get published should certainly be looked at.”
The Star’s Editor-in-Chief, Denise Cervantes, addressed that line of reasoning in an editor’s notepublished on the paper’s website Tuesday night, though as of press time there was still no digital version of the original op-ed.
The University Star’s opinion pages are a forum for students to express and debate ideas,” Cervantes noted. “While our publication does not endorse every opinion put forth by student columnists or guest contributors, as the editor I take responsibility for what is printed on our pages.”
While he acknowledged that the op-ed had generated “widespread criticism” from readers, including “many expressing that they find the author’s ideas to be racist,” Cervantes sought to portray the matter as a misunderstanding.
“The original intent of the column was to comment on the idea of race and racial identities. We acknowledge that the column could have been clearer in its message and that it has caused hurt within our campus community,” the editor’s note concluded. “We apologize and hope that we can move forward to a place of productive dialogue on ways to bring our community together.”
Not all students accept that argument, however, saying it should have been clear to the editors from the outset that the piece was intended primarily as a racial provocation.
Savanna Gabrielle, a Latina student and Turning Point USA member, told Campus Reform that she “couldn’t believe that my university, [which] supposedly supports different cultures and races, actually published that in the newspaper,” saying, “I feel like the writer wrote it in order to gain recognition and hopefully create a resistance to the ‘white race,’ but what he ultimately created was the beginnings of another Hitler.”
Texas State student Andrew Homann, a former chief of staff for the Texas Federation of College Republicans who once served as Texas State Student Body President, offered a similar assessment, drawing a distinction between the author’s right to freely express his views and the newspaper’s right to exercise editorial discretion.
“I am saddened by the fact that The University Star, my school’s paper funded by tuition and tax dollars, would give a platform to racism, bigotry and hatred,” he told Campus Reform. “While this individual has every right to express his disgusting world-view, this rhetoric does not belong in any publication, anywhere.”

How A North Korean Electromagnetic Pulse Attack Could Kill Millions And Turn America Into A Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland

North Korea can now reach New York and Washington DC

This is why North Korea’s test of an intercontinental ballistic missile is so important. 

North Korea had test fired a total of 22 missiles so far this year, but this latest one showed that nobody on the globe is out of their reach.  In fact, General Mattis is now admitting that “North Korea can basically threaten everywhere in the world”, and that includes the entire continental United States.  In addition to hitting individual cities with nukes, there is also the possibility that someday North Korea could try to take down the entire country with an EMP attack.  If the North Koreans detonated a single nuclear warhead several hundred miles above the center of the country, it would destroy the power grid and fry electronics from coast to coast.
I would like you to think about what that would mean for a few moments.  Suddenly there would be no power at home, at work or at school.  Since nearly all of our vehicles rely on computerized systems, you wouldn’t be able to go anywhere and nobody would be able to get to you.  And you wouldn’t be able to contact anyone because all phones would be dead.  Basically, pretty much everything electronic would be dead.  I am talking about computers, televisions, GPS devices, ATMs, heating and cooling systems, refrigerators, credit card readers, gas pumps, cash registers, hospital equipment, traffic lights, etc.
For the first couple of days life would continue somewhat normally, but then people would soon start to realize that the power isn’t coming back on and panic would begin to erupt.
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvT7FoxGXrE]
The intercontinental ballistic missile that North Korea just launched traveled almost 1,000 kilometers and reached a maximum altitude of 4,500 kilometers.  We have been told for decades that this would never be allowed to happen, but now it has happened

This is concerning for one big reason: according to General Mattis, the North Korean ICBM “went higher, frankly, than any previous” and “North Korea can basically threaten everywhere in the world.” This was confirmed by North Korea missile analyst, Shea Cotton, who cited Allthingsnuclear author David Wright, and who told the BBC that the initial estimates of the ICBM test mean that North Korea can now reach New York and Washington DC.

If we had been working hard to develop our anti-missile technology all these years, this wouldn’t be a problem.
But at this point we are way behind the Russians in this regard, and there is a very real possibility that a missile launched by the North Koreans could make it through the very limited anti-missile defenses that we do have.
Once upon a time, discussions about a North Korean EMP threat were mostly hypothetical, but now that has completely changed.  North Korea has clearly demonstrated that they are able to deliver such an attack, and last September Kim Jong Un publicly admitted that North Korea intended to develop this capability

But most reporters missed a key threat that appeared at the bottom of Kim’s public statement, when he bragged that North Korea had harnessed “a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack according to strategic goals.”
So now we know. Launching an electromagnetic pulse attacks against its enemies is one of North Korea’s strategic goals. And for North Korea, the United States is the top enemy.

And like I said earlier, all it would take would be a single well placed nuclear detonation to fry electronics from coast to coast.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

Theoretically, a sufficiently powerful bomb detonated at an altitude of 249 miles would wipe out all electronics in the US, save the southernmost top of Florida and the easternmost states – as well as affecting Canada and Mexico.

Without power, nothing would get distributed.  That means that very rapidly there would be no food, no water and no medicine available in your community.  An article posted by Fox News this week used the term “post-apocalyptic” to describe what we would be facing…

It all starts to sound very post-apocalyptic when you realize this means no lights or other electric-powered devices in homes and businesses, no water filtration, no regional food hubs, no transportation grid – none of the things we take for granted in modern civilization.

Like I stated earlier, things would be relatively fine for a few days, but then once everyone realizes that the power isn’t coming back on there would be chaos on a scale unlike anything we have ever seen before.  The following comes from an article by Mac Slavo

The first 24 – 48 hours after such an occurrence will lead to confusion among the general population as traditional news acquisition sources like television, radio and cell phone networks will be non-functional.
Within a matter of days, once people realize the power might not be coming back on and grocery store shelves start emptying, the entire system will begin to delve into chaos.
Within 30 days a mass die off will have begun as food supplies dwindle, looters and gangs turn to violent extremes, medicine can’t be restocked and water pump stations fail.

So what kind of a “mass die off” would we be talking about?
Well, some of the top experts in the field believe that “up to 90 percent of all Americans” could end up dead if the power outage lasted long enough…

William Graham, chairman of the former EMP commission and its former chief of staff, Peter Vincent Pry, warned the hearing that such an attack could “shut down the US electric power grid for an indefinite period, leading to the death within a year of up to 90 percent of all Americans.“

Others believe that the figure would be lower, but pretty much everyone agrees that the death toll would be in the millions.
This is one of our greatest strategic vulnerabilities, and our power grid could be hardened against an EMP attack for just a few billion dollars.  This is something that I am pushing very hard for, but right now it is just not a priority for our leaders in Washington.
In fact, they have actually pulled funding from the commission that was looking into the EMP threat…

On Sept. 30, the Congressional Commission to Assess the Threat of Electromagnetic Pulse to the United States of America shut its doors after a failure to secure funding from Congress.

Sometimes I find it difficult to come up with the words to describe how incredibly foolish Congress is being.
An EMP attack is a greater threat than ever before, and yet Congress didn’t even want to come up with a little bit of funding for the commission that was working on a plan to protect us.
This is yet another example that shows that we need new leadership on Capitol Hill, because right now the people that we have “representing” us in Washington seem to be completely and utterly clueless about almost everything.

MSNBC Hosts: Trump Is Mentally Ill, Has Dementia, Must Be Removed From Office

“His bizarre behavior contravenes both the Constitution and basic moral judgment”

MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts called for President Trump to be removed from office via the 25th Amendment this morning, claiming that he is mentally unstable.

Mika Brzezinski read a New York Daily News editorial on air, quoting “Only those completely under his spell can deny what growing numbers of Americans have long suspected: The President of the United States is profoundly unstable. He is mad. He is by any honest layman’s definition mentally unwell.”
She also quoted a New York Times writer who wrote that “something is unleashed with” Trump at this time.
https://www.mrctv.org/embed/525558
The hosts bemoaned Trump re tweeting ‘conspiracy theories’, including a tweet directed at Joe Scarborough.
The tweet was a reference to Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old office staffer who worked for Scarborough while he was in Congress and was found dead in his district office in July 2001. The death, caused by a fatal head trauma, was ruled to be an accident.
“And this comes in the midst of a nuclear showdown with North Korea,” Scarborough said. “So I’m just kind of wondering — what’s the Cabinet waiting for? What are Republicans in the House and Senate — because it’s never going to get more deadly serious than it is now.”
“If this is not what the 25th Amendment was drafted for — I would like the Cabinet members, serving America, not the president, serving America …you don’t represent him,” Scarborough added.
“You have somebody inside the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit; that people close to him say is mentally unfit; that people close to him during the campaign told me had early stages of dementia.” Scarborough continued.
“When are we supposed to say this? After the first nuclear missile goes? Is that when it’s proper to bring this up in polite society?” he urged.
Brzezinski then read a statement she said she wrote, claiming that Trump’s ‘false conspiracy theories’ are part of an effort to “intimidate the press and cause a chilling effect on the First Amendment.”
“Joe and I are not intimidated. And his bizarre behavior contravenes both the Constitution and basic moral judgment.” she added.

Number Five: Army Veteran Accuses Franken of Groping Her During USO Tour

An Army veteran is accusing Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of inappropriately touching her during a USO tour in 2003 while she was deployed in Kuwait.

Stephanie Kemplin told CNN that Franken cupped her breast while she was taking a photo with him.
“When he put his arm around me, he groped my right breast. He kept his hand all the way over on my breast,” Kemplin said. “I’ve never had a man put their arm around me and then cup my breast. So he was holding my breast on the side.”

Swedish Government Report Says Putting the Word “Refugees” in Quotation Marks is “Hate”

Questioning age of ‘child migrants’ is also hate

A report published by a Swedish government agency says that putting the word “refugees” in quotation marks is “hate” and that questioning the age of child migrants is also a form of extremism.

The report, written by the Swedish National Defence Research Institute, is entitled The White Hatred. It characterizes Sweden’s “new media,” in other words any media outlet that doesn’t blindly regurgitate politically correct narratives, as potential threats to democracy, conflating them with actual neo-nazi groups.

The report defines “hate” as violent extremism that includes “hateful expressions” and jokes in the context of Internet trolling. This encompasses the practice of putting the word “refugees” in quotation marks to implicitly suggest that many such individuals might not be genuine refugees.

Using the term “unaccompanied children” in quotation marks is also a form of “hate,” according to the report, because it implies that they might actually be adults.

The sheer ludicrousness of this assertion is laid bare by a study by Sweden’s own National Board of Medicines, which found that three out of four so-called child “refugees” in the country are actually adults.

Having carried out an X-ray examination of the wisdom teeth and a magnetic camera survey of the knee joint on 581 individuals, the results found that 442 were aged 18 or older, with just 134 being under the age of 18.

In other words, around three in four of the asylum seekers who are claiming to be children are in fact adults.

To be clear, the Swedish government is now overtly asserting that telling the truth about the “refugee crisis” is an act of “hate”. This represents an unprecedented attack on free speech and an Orwellian sign of what’s to come.

The report claims that using quotations represents an act of “hate” because neo-nazi groups also use quotation marks around the word “Holocaust” as “a way of showing that you do not agree with the existence of the Holocaust.”

“The report further alleges that society risks becoming tolerant of the intolerant. That is rather rich coming from the authorities of a European country that has accepted Islamic intolerance to an astounding degree. There is even a proposal from a government minister to reintegrate returning ISIS fighters, who might still wish to destroy the tolerant society that houses them,” writes columnist Judith Bergman.

Bergman contrasts the ‘White Hatred’ report with a previous Swedish government inquiry into Islamic extremism, which concluded that
“It is not in itself illegal to sympathize with violent ideologies.”

“Government agencies in charge of national security, in other words, are going out of their way to protect the “integrity” of possible jihadists out of concerns for a “democratic society” — the society that these jihadists want to subvert and destroy. Meanwhile, these agencies are using their government platform to smear non-mainstream media for matters as small as the use of quotation marks. What about the “integrity” of Swedish citizens and their right to not be blown up?” she asks.

As we previously reported, Sweden’s migrant ghettos are now so dangerous that police are installing microphones to pick up the sound of women screaming.

However, while actual ISIS recruitment propaganda is being broadcast on Swedish radio stations, the government appears to be more concernedabout milk being used as a symbol to radicalize white racists.

Smartphone Addiction Creates Imbalance in Brain

Smartphone Addiction Creates Imbalance in Brain


https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/smartphone-addiction-creates-imbalance-in-brain-300558945.html
___________________________________________
 
CHICAGO, Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Researchers have found an imbalance in the brain chemistry of young people addicted to smartphones and the internet, according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

 
According to a recent Pew Research Center study, 46 percent of Americans say they could not live without their smartphones. While this sentiment is clearly hyperbole, more and more people are becoming increasingly dependent on smartphones and other portable electronic devices for news, information, games, and even the occasional phone call.
Along with a growing concern that young people, in particular, may be spending too much time staring into their phones instead of interacting with others, come questions as to the immediate effects on the brain and the possible long-term consequences of such habits.
Hyung Suk Seo, M.D., professor of neuroradiology at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea, and colleagues used magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to gain unique insight into the brains of smartphone- and internet-addicted teenagers. MRS is a type of MRI that measures the brain’s chemical composition.
The study involved 19 young people (mean age 15.5, 9 males) diagnosed with internet or smartphone addiction and 19 gender- and age-matched healthy controls. Twelve of the addicted youth received nine weeks of cognitive behavioral therapy, modified from a cognitive therapy program for gaming addiction, as part of the study.
Researchers used standardized internet and smartphone addiction tests to measure the severity of internet addiction. Questions focused on the extent to which internet and smartphone use affects daily routines, social life, productivity, sleeping patterns and feelings.
“The higher the score, the more severe the addiction,” Dr. Seo said.
Dr. Seo reported that the addicted teenagers had significantly higher scores in depression, anxiety, insomnia severity and impulsivity.
The researchers performed MRS exams on the addicted youth prior to and following behavioral therapy and a single MRS study on the control patients to measure levels of gamma aminobutyric acid, or GABA, a neurotransmitter in the brain that inhibits or slows down brain signals, and glutamate-glutamine (Glx), a neurotransmitter that causes neurons to become more electrically excited. Previous studies have found GABA to be involved in vision and motor control and the regulation of various brain functions, including anxiety.
The results of the MRS revealed that, compared to the healthy controls, the ratio of GABA to Glx was significantly increased in the anterior cingulate cortex of smartphone- and internet-addicted youth prior to therapy.
Dr. Seo said the ratios of GABA to creatine and GABA to glutamate were significantly correlated to clinical scales of internet and smartphone addictions, depression and anxiety.
Having too much GABA can result in a number of side effects, including drowsiness and anxiety.
More study is needed to understand the clinical implications of the findings, but Dr. Seo believes that increased GABA in the anterior cingulate gyrus in internet and smartphone addiction may be related to the functional loss of integration and regulation of processing in the cognitive and emotional neural network.
The good news is GABA to Glx ratios in the addicted youth significantly decreased or normalized after cognitive behavioral therapy.
“The increased GABA levels and disrupted balance between GABA and glutamate in the anterior cingulate cortex may contribute to our understanding the pathophysiology of and treatment for addictions,” Dr. Seo said.

Trump: Investigate Scarborough Over Death of Intern

President sheds light on unusual circumstances of intern’s death

In response to the Matt Lauer revelations, President Trump said MSNBC host Joe Scarborough should also be investigated for an “unsolved mystery,” likely referring to the death of intern Lori Klausutis in 2001.

“…And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!” tweeted the president on Wed. morning.

So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!

Klausutis, Scarborough’s intern during his tenure as a House Representative, was found dead in his office on July 20, 2001.

The autopsy report said the 28-year-old, who suffered a head wound, had likely died from an “undiagnosed heart condition.”

Scarborough’s staff said Klausutis had “known health issues,” a claim disputed by a family member who said she was a member of a running club and had completed an 8K race with a respectable time prior to her death.

Scarborough, who had well over a year left in his congressional term, resigned two months after Klausutis’ death and the media, focused on the 9/11 attacks, quickly buried the story.

“Fort Walton Beach Police Chief Steve Hogue said that preliminary findings from the medical examiner’s office of Dr. Michael Berkland showed ‘no foul play or any outward indication of suicide,’” reported streemit.com. “So how did Klausutis die then?”

Two Fort Walton Beach officers who witnessed Klausutis’ autopsy said her skull was fractured, which wasn’t mentioned in the final autopsy report.

And apparently, the medical examiner who performed the autopsy, Dr. Berkland, lost his license in two states for lying about his work.

On May 29, 2003, Scarborough allegedly referenced her death during an appearance on the Don Imus radio show, but nearly all audio evidence of this exchange was deleted from the Internet, including the audio track from this YouTube video:
