Yup:

I've been thinking about writing songs again. These days, I've been thinking about the title of my first in a long time.

How about this?

But Michael, If any of those bad things were still happening then the pretty faces on the magic screen on the wall would tell me so.

I’m sure the embarrassment of exposure was too much to bear and so the bad actors stopped.

Really, though, like an adult this time. Why?

And why do Macron and Merkel talk publicly about the need for a new army, the Army of the EU, to defend itself from America, Russia and China? That’s not normal. It is extraordinary. I trust we can agree its explanation will have to be extraordinary? It is because those three are allied and they are in process of liberating Europe.

Merkel (Germany) Macron (France) and May (UK) are enemy operators. They are not secure in their leading positions. They will be taken out shortly, either quietly or loudly. Probably quietly. If it gets hot, Putin will take action all over Europe.

The version on TV is not what is really happening right now, I hope you understand that much is surely true.

 

May is in crisis. Wont be long, now. Chill the champagne.

And add that Jacinda thug from NZ to the list.

This sounds like a conspiracy. At least seven Americans have died in the Dominican Republic. In the latest instance a 50 something woman died and her son is saying the authorities can’t release any toxicology reports because their machine is broken. They recommend she be cremated immediately. That is highly suspicious. Fox News speculated that the only common denominator may be the use of a hotel’s minibar and perhaps the alcohol was tainted and contaminated with a poison or a killer variety of alcohol. Fox also said tourism is a huge percent of the Dominican Republic’s budget. Perhaps a serial killer is on the loose. Peter

Isopropyl alcohol — also called isopropanol or 2-propanol or rubbing alcohol, more commonly — finds use among physicians, who rub the poisonous substance onto surfaces, tools and human bodies for its cooling and disinfecting properties. Produced by combining water and propylene, rubbing alcohol works well for sterilization. Its high evaporation rate makes it a common choice for cleaning electronics, although it is found in everyday cleaning products, as well. Isopropyl alcohol also is found in cosmetics, including lotions. The chemical formula for this type of alcohol is C3H8O. Often, isopropyl alcohol — along with other more dangerous types of alcohol — products contain bittering agents that dissuade people from drinking it.

Methyl alcohol, also called methanol and wood alcohol, primarily finds use as an industrial solvent. For example, paint remover and photocopier developers make use of it. People with experience and know-how also use methyl alcohol to make other chemicals. Formaldehyde forms as a byproduct of degrading methanol — some industries use this byproduct to make everything from plastics to explosives. It also works to fuel internal combustion engines and keep other fuels from freezing, thanks to its high freezing point, -143.68 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ethel alcohol. People — mostly adults — consume ethyl alcohol, sometimes called grain alcohol, in beverages. People usually imbibe ethyl alcohol in a diluted concentration — the level of the concentration is known as the proof of the alcoholic beverage — to improve its taste. Ethyl alcohol is known for its ability to alter mood and behavior. Brewers and distillers usually make it from grains or other pieces of plant matter with high sugar contents. The liver usually is able to filter ethyl alcohol from the human body, but ethyl alcohol still is toxic when consumed faster than the liver can metabolize it. Like methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol also has uses as an industrial solvent and as a fuel additive.

Which countries give America  a thumbs down? Egypt. Jordan. Syria. Palestinian territories. Pakistan 59 to 65 percent disapproval rating but they sure want to immigrate here. Iran. Lebanon. Russia. Belarus has a 69% disapproval rating. Greece? 63 percent on a Pew Poll. Argentina 57%. Austria 55. Slovenia - It was 54 before Melania became First Lady so it should be better now. Peter

Francis Crick discoverer of the structure of DNA said: . . . . what everyone believed yesterday, and you believe today, only cranks will believe tomorrow.”

Dialogue not from “Mayberry RFD,” but it could-er been.

Ya gotta release the prisoner, Barney. Witchcraft? Ain’t no such thing. Don’t know why there’s still a law on the books.

Then why’re there a word for it, Andy?   

Stupidity. Same goes with alchemy and sorcery. I ain’t sure about the Big Bang neither cause it may’n just be from the Bible.

Then why I gotta know about that, Andy? She broke the law with them potions she was sellin’!

Just think Barney. What's taken as common knowledge today that will cause Hee Haw’s in 20 years.

Note. Sheriff Andy Taylor was real and portrayed by my Pappy. You believe that?  

From ListVerse: Alchemy has its roots (in the Western world) in Ancient Egypt where it combined with metallurgy in a form of early science. The Egyptian alchemists discovered the formulas for making mortar, glass, and cosmetics. From Egypt it eventually spread to the rest of the Ancient world and led to modern alchemy in which men would try to turn metals into gold, to conjure up genies, and perform all manner of bizarre not-so-science-like activities. While it has contributed in some ways to modern science, the discipline of true science caused the death of alchemy which could not stand up to the rigorous testing of its pseudoscience.

California Island. From the 16th century, European experts in geography were convinced that California was an island separate from the North American mainland. Maps of the time show a large island on the left of the land mass and California continued to appear this way even into the 18th century. There was at the time also a rumor that California was an earthly paradise like the Garden of Eden or Atlantis . . . .

Geocentricity is the concept which states that the earth is the center of the Universe and that all other objects move around it. The view was universally embraced in Ancient Greece and very similar ideas were held in Ancient China. The idea was supported by the fact that the sun, stars, and planets appear to revolve around Earth, and the physical perception that the Earth is stable and not moving. This was combined with the belief that the earth was a sphere; belief in a flat earth was well gone by the 3rd century BC. The geocentric model was eventually displaced with the work of of Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler in the 16th Century.

The Four Humors In classical antiquity right up to modern times, it was believed that the body contained four humors: blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm. It was believed that the right balance of these four humors made a person healthy but an excess or decrease in any one of these would cause illness. Because of this belief, treatments of sickness would include bloodletting, purges, and emetics. Occasionally a mixture of herbs would be used to restore the balance. The humors were also applied to foods – for example wine was choleric (yellow bile). This classification still exists today to some extent, as we refer to some foods as “hot” and others as “dry”. The concept of humors was not replaced until 1858 when Rudolf Virchow published theories of cellular pathology.

Vitalism. Vitalism states that the functions of living things are controlled by a “vital force” and not biophysical means. Vitalism has a long history in medical philosophies – and it has ties to the four humors. It is sometimes referred to as a “life spark” and even as the soul. In the Eastern traditions it is essentially the same thing as “qi” or “chi”, which is heavily tied in to oriental medicinal methods. The concept is (as can be expected) completely rejected by most mainstream scientists. In 1967, Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, stated “And so to those of you who may be vitalists I would make this prophecy: what everyone believed yesterday, and you believe today, only cranks will believe tomorrow.”

Maternal Impression. Maternal Impression is an old belief that a mother’s thoughts while pregnant can impart special characteristics on the child in her womb. For many years this idea was used to explain congenital disorders and birth defects. Maternal Impression was used to explain the disorder suffered by the Elephant Man: it was suggested that his mother was frightened by an elephant while she was pregnant with him – thereby imprinting the memory of an elephant on her child. Depression was also explained in this manner. If a mother had moments of strong sadness during pregnancy, it was believed that her child would ultimately suffer from depression in later life. Genetic theory caused the almost complete eradication of this belief in the 20th century.

Phlogiston. The theory of phlogiston dates to 1667 when Johann Joachim Becher (a German physicist) suggested that there was a fifth element (phlogiston) to go with the four classical elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire) which was contained within objects that could burn. It was believed that when an object burned, it released its phlogiston (an element without taste, mass, odor or color) and left behind a powdery substance called calx (what we now know to be oxide). Objects that burned in air were considered to be rich in phlogiston and the fact that a fire burned out when oxygen was removed was seen as proof that oxygen could only absorb a limited amount of the substance. This theory also led to the idea that the human need to breathe had a sole function which was to remove phlogiston from the body. The entire concept was superseded by Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier’s discovery that combustion could only occur with the help of a gas such as oxygen.

Spontaneous Generation. Before microscopes and theories of cells and germs, man had other ideas about the creation of living things. He bizarrely believed that life arose from inanimate matter (for example, maggots come spontaneously from rotting meat). Proponents of this view (virtually everyone) used the Bible as a source of evidence, due to the fact that God made man from dust. However, the view did exist before Christianity and Aristotle said, in no uncertain terms, that some animals grow spontaneously and not from other animals of their kind. Earlier believers had to come up with some pretty strange ideas to make their theory work: Anaximander (a Greek philosopher who taught Pythagoras) believed that at some point in man’s history, humans had been born from the soil spontaneously in adult form, otherwise they could never have survived. Before we laugh too hard at the ancients, we should note that many Scientists right up to the 19th century believed this, and some even wrote recipe books for making animals. One such recipe (to make a scorpion) calls for basil, placed between two bricks and left in sunlight. The theory was not finally put to rest until 1859, when Louis Pasteur proved it wrong once and for all.

Final days of Seth Rich conspiracy peddling?

Seth Rich leaked the DNC emails and they murdered him for it.

Kevin Poulsen has a different perspective, based on the Mueller Report itself:

Mueller Report: Assange Smeared Seth Rich to Cover for Russians
Julian Assange repeatedly blamed Seth Rich, the murdered DNC staffer, for Russia’s leaks. The Mueller report shows that Assange was lying from the start.

Quote

Julian Assange not only knew that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer wasn’t his source for thousands of hacked party emails, he was in active contact with his real sources in Russia’s GRU months after Seth Rich’s death.

Introducing Conspiracyland: Inside an Unsolved D.C. Murder

Yahoo News Video July 8, 2019

“Conspiracyland” is a podcast from the creators of Yahoo News' “Skullduggery.” Chief Investigative Correspondent Michael Isikoff dives deep into the unsolved murder of DNC staff member Seth Rich to reveal startling new insights and exclusive interviews in this true-crime podcast. Each week, Isikoff peels away the layers of conspiracy around the murder — conspiracies that falsely claim Rich was killed in a targeted assassination as retaliation for sending DNC emails to WikiLeaks. The story follows the birth of the conspiracy theories, as memes about Rich's death spread like wildfire through the dark corners of the internet. It shows how these bogus claims were quickly picked up and promoted by so-called alt-right websites, and then brought into the mainstream by influential personalities like WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, President Trump's longtime political adviser Roger Stone, White House counselor Steve Bannon and Fox News star Sean Hannity. Rich’s tragic story reveals how disinformation and conspiracy theories have exploded through the use of social media, and how they can be manipulated for cash, for publicity and, most of all, for cynical political purposes. This six-episode investigation demonstrates why conspiracy theories continue to have such a powerful hold on the American psyche, and who, if anybody, can be held accountable for the harm they cause.

I’m confused. Do all stupid conspiracy theories involve real report after real report after real report? Weird.

“George Nader, who was a key witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, was hit with new federal charges of sex trafficking for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old boy he transported from Europe.“

Publicity-hungry D.C. lobbyist Jack Burkman takes the unsolved murder on a wild spree, casting and filming a reenactment of the killing for his own promotional purposes. He does so as another bizarre conspiracy theory takes root — “Pizzagate,” the claim that the Clintons were linked to the sex trafficking of children in the basement of a popular D.C. pizza parlor. The episode explores the indispensable role of “super spreaders” who perpetuate conspiracy theories on social media.

I wonder if Mueller will be asked about this when he testifies to Congress in two days. 😆

I can already hear Rep. Gaetz chuckling, struggling to finish his one and only question: 'Mr Mueller, when did you realize that your blackmailed pedo plant in the administration was worthless to you after all, because the administration always knew your plant to be your plant?'  😆

 

— In 1984, Nader was indicted for possessing child pornography in D.C. 

— In 1990, again at Dulles, law enforcement caught Nader with films featuring minor boys. Nader pleaded guilty the following year.

— 2003 conviction in the Czech Republic on charges of abusing minors, including a charge of transporting of a minor boy to the U.S. for sexual purposes. Federal prosecutors said Nader has had “hands-on contact with more than a dozen minor boys.”

— 2018 possessing and transporting child pornography. Authorities stopped him at Dulles in January of that year and questioned him about his time working with the Trump team. Soon after, Nader began cooperating with Mueller, and in the spring of 2018 he departed for Dubai, where he lived until he attempted to re-enter the U.S. last month [June 2019].

Candace knocked it out of the park in Congress today:

Also, there was a kerfuffle with Ted Lieu. He played a recording of Candace mentioning Hitler--out of context, of course (and, frankly, poorly expressed in light of her normal beliefs). In her comments, she said that Lieu believes black people are stupid and will not pursue the full audio. Nadler immediately rebuked her for calling Lieu stupid--which she did not do. I think he was sleeping or something while she was talking. But now he can't do anything about it. This dumbass gaff is in the congressional records

You have to see it to believe it.

Candace just did it again.

The progressive clowns in Congress just won't learn. They cannot call her before Congress to humiliate her.

The following happened right at the end of another hearing on white supremacy, this time by the House Oversight Joint Subcommittee (Oversight and National Security). This hearing happened today.

You just don't get to make up crap about Candace and have her sit there and take it like a bitch. She will throw your crap right back in your face, which wakes people up, then restate her agenda priorities, which spreads her message to people who might not have otherwise noticed. And she is so clear, she ends up convincing many who disagree with her.

Besides, she's entertaining. Take a look at 2:53 where she triggered the Chairman of the House Oversight Joint Subcommittee (Oversight and National Security), Jamie Raskin:

CANDACE: ... you know that white supremacy and white nationalism is nowhere near, ranks nowhere near the top of the issues that are facing black America, and the reason that you are bringing them up in this room is because it is [an] attempt to make the election all about race, as the Democrats do...

RASKIN (cutting in): Not in my case Ms. Owens.

(there is some crosstalk)

CANDACE: Please don't cut me off.

RASKIN: Please don't mischaracterize my motives.

Then order was restored. But look at this marvel of cluelessness. This last comment was said by a man who spent an entire House Joint Subcommittee meeting (almost three hours) trying to mischaracterize Candace's motives.

:) 

Shortly thereafter, and running off problems that are "actually harming black America," to quote Candace, like father absence, the education system and the illiteracy rate, illegal immigration and abortion, she also chided the subcommittee:

CANDACE: ... this hearing, in my opinion, is a farce. And it is ironic you're sitting here and you're having three Caucasian people testify and tell you what their expertise are. Do I know [what] my expertise are? Black in America. I've been black in America my whole life, all thirty years. And I can tell you that you guys have done the exact same thing every four years ahead of an election cycle, and it needs to stop.

:)

btw - Look at Jim Jordan when she finished. (This is a screenshot from the full video posted on YouTube by Fox News at 2:57:20.) He looks like he's trying hard to keep from busting out laughing. Man did they get it back in their faces and now it's in the Congressional Records.

Candace, a nobody coming out YouTube videos made in her home, in record time just scored an interview most journalists only dream about and never get.

It's too early for such a prediction, but I'm going to make it anyway. Wanna see the first black female American president? I think we're looking at her in the seedling stage.
