Triality of Conciousness / Unexplaned Tales C2C March 21, 2018

With a master's of science in mechanical engineering from MIT, George Walter Chyz discussed the science of the soul and how he has uncovered a three-part "Triality" of human consciousness that opens the door to the divine soul. Triality is an advancement beyond duality, and in addition to the mind and heart, he proposed that consciousness also resides in the gut, a seat of intuition. Further, he cited evidence, such as from reincarnation and NDE studies, that the mind retains functions outside of the brain. "Consciousness is not created by the physical brain," -- it's what's at the foundation of the universe, not matter, he declared.

"The brain," said Chyz, "is like a multi-pin connector," for the field of consciousness, and it works in tandem with the gastrointestinal brain which is "actually sending more signals up the spinal cord than the head brain is sending signals down." Interestingly, he suggested that for half the population the pineal gland has calcified and turned to bone due to emotional pain. After discussions with the Hopi and Kahuna, he has found their wisdom and prophecies mesh with his scientific theories bridging the spiritual and scientific worlds.

In the latter half of the show, host of The Paranormal Podcast, Jim Harold, shared some of his latest stories from the world of the strange and unexplained. A woman named Nicki told him about a visit she and her husband made to the Stanley Hotel (the site for the movie The Shining). The TVs in the rooms play the Kubrick film on a continuous loop, and they particularly wanted to see the part with the "creepy twins," so they left the room for a bit. When they returned, the broadcast became stuck on a freeze frame of the identical girls. Upon calling down to the desk, they discovered it was only their room's TV where this malfunction occurred. Then at 2:17 am, Nicki awoke to hear the sound of two young voices laughing outside her door. She thought it odd that children would be up so late.

Harold related a story from a man named Steve who worked at a factory job in the Virginia mountains as a college student. Early one morning on his way to work, he stops at a small town stoplight, and an older man asked him for a ride over the mountain. Steve explains that he doesn't have the time as he's running late. The stoplight seems to be taking forever to change, and the man approaches the car, reaches inside the window, and says "Let me in!" Steve hits the gas and takes off, and he sees the guy in the rearview mirror mouthing "Don't you know who I am?" As he drives some distance away, he pulls over to collect himself, and suddenly sees the man next to the window. Steve blacked out, Harold recounted, and when he came to, he found himself parked in the factory parking lot balled up down by the gas pedal and brake. As he pulled himself out, he claimed to see a bright light ascend above the car and disappear into the sky.

False Democracy / Law Enforcement & the Paranormal C2C March 20, 2018

In the first half, geopolitics and foreign policy analyst Craig B. Hulet shared updates on the most recent push for greater controls on the sale of guns, electromagnetic terrorism, and the control of the government by moneyed interests. He commented on a bombing incident in Austin, Texas earlier in the day, saying that an organized group cannot be ruled out as the culprit, pointing out that "an ‪international guerrilla movement of this kind of people was formed 30 years ago." He added that the U.S. is the only country in the world where the government and media push the "lone nut" idea in these situations before all the facts are known. As far as the current investigation into collusion with Russia on the last election, Hulet believes that there "is nothing there," since many wealthy individuals have to do business with Russian oligarchs.

Hulet stated that the left/ right argument in the United States politics is false and was created to keep the voting population believing that there is a choice. Congressmen and senators, he says "are beholden to…the corporations or companies that put them in power" and that democracy in America is a false one that the majority of the population believes in because they can "only think in back and white." Hulet stated his opinion that the loss of jobs in this country may force the government to consider the idea of a guaranteed income for everyone, just to keep the economy operating and people from becoming desperate. He concluded that "the country has gone from being a functioning republic to an oligarchy."

In the second half, author and paranormal researcher Gare Allen discussed his life with psychic and paranormal occurrences, starting when he was a child and something picked up his bed and shook it before dropping it to the floor again. He later bought a house that turned out to be haunted by a former resident, who Allen says left evidence that he apparently performed some sort of rituals in the front bedroom. He experienced knocks on the walls, objects which would go missing, and window blinds that would be "knocked almost off the wall." The most startling incident he recalled was when "a demon appeared a few inches from my face." Allen believes that a shaman was able to greatly diminish the activity, as well as his practice of putting down a barrier of holy water and sea salt around the house.

For his new book, Allen interviewed first responders, police, and health care professionals about their paranormal experiences and found that while reticent to speak at first, that once he got them talking, he "couldn’t get them to stop." One of the most chilling stories came from a paramedic who arrived to find a woman standing near the front entrance of a home in a yellow robe, pointing up the stairs with a frightened look on her face. The EMT found the identical woman in a yellow robe dead in an upstairs room, but that the woman downstairs had disappeared. Allen believes that "we’re on the cusp of some new understanding" with regard to the paranormal and the spiritual. During the last hour, listeners shared their own paranormal encounters with the host and guest.

Debt & Banking / Facing Fears C2C March 19, 2018

Founder of the Public Banking Institute and the author of a dozen books and hundreds of articles, Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In the first half, she discussed various financial issues related to banking and debt, as well as alternative health treatments, particularly related to cancer. It's not the government that creates our money, she explained, it's actually banks which generate funds when they issue loans. But that doesn't include the paying back of interest. In the private system we have, this money, she noted, doesn't go back into the local economy, but rather into speculative markets where the 1% are bidding up their own asset prices.

This system, she continued, leads to a chronic shortage of the money supply, "and that is how we are trapped in a web of debt." As a replacement for this model, she envisions a national community currency system which could be done sustainably with banking considered as a public utility like highways or electricity. Brown also addressed the ballooning student loan problem, where people remained mired in endless debt for years. In addition, she detailed the life and work of Jimmy Keller, a Tijuana-based alternative healer, who had a remarkable success rate in helping people with cancer but was jailed on fraud charges in the US.

Senior pastor of the 20,000-member Church of the Resurrection, Kansas City, the largest and most influential United Methodist congregation in the United States, Adam J. Hamilton spoke about the growing problem of fear ruining lives and well-being. He has become deeply involved with helping people who are struggling with fears of failure, irrelevance, finances, death, and illness—even FOMO (fear of missing out)-- to name a few. A certain amount of fear is wired into us, he said, and this can be healthy in terms of keeping us safe from danger, but other fears can cause people to become paralyzed and unproductive.

He outlined a four-step plan to combat and deal with them:

1) Facing your fear with the bias of hope
2) Examining your assumptions in light of rational facts
3) Attacking anxieties with action
4) (for people of faith) Releasing your fears to God
People in different age groups tend to report specific fears-- for instance, those over 50, start fearing for the loss of their memory. Hamilton also cited the use of exposure therapy (tackling fears a little at a time) as a valid approach.

Princess Diana Conspiracy / Zombies in Film & TV C2C March 18, 2018

Joining Dave Schrader, author and journalist Sarah Whalen shared her research into the life and death of Princess Diana. She suggested that people resonated with Diana as a kind of goddess, or bridge figure between the human and divine. Citing the murders of various British royalty going back hundreds of years, Whalen compared Diana's death to what she considered to be the "ritual sacrifices" of two of Henry the VIII's wives. The British monarchy, she contended, wanted Diana taken out for some of the comments she made, such as Prince Charles not being fit to rule, and seized on a window of opportunity when she was in Paris, without her usual security team.

If Diana had been brought to a hospital more promptly after the 1997 collision in the Alma Tunnel in Paris, her wound could have been sutured, said Whalen, and she might have had a decent shot at survival. Rather than paparazzi on scooters in the tunnel, Whalen described two mysterious men on large motorcycles flanking the Mercedes Diana was traveling in with Dodi Fayed, as well as a dark sedan that was tailgating them. Additionally, witnesses described a bright flash in the tunnel, as though from a military strobe light, which Whalen thinks was used to disorient the driver. She gleaned much of her information from the three inquests that looked into Diana's death (though none of them returned a verdict of conspiracy charges).
In the latter half, author and pop culture analyst Dahlia Schweitzer discussed her new book Going Viral: Zombies, Viruses, and the End of the World, which explores stories of pandemics and disease outbreaks in American film and TV. The zombie narrative has changed over the decades, she noted, starting out with its origin in Haiti and voodoo culture, with religious or black magic overtones. Then in the 1960s and 70s, came the George Romero model, which never pinned down exactly what caused the zombie outbreak, though there were implications of radiation or something from outer space. With the Resident Evil video game and the film 28 Days Later (2002), the notion of infection was introduced, said Schweitzer, and this viral aspect has remained a mainstay of shows such as The Walking Dead.

Zombie-themed works, she pointed out, tap into different human anxieties, and have a reflective quality mirroring the social fears of the day. For many folks nowadays, she continued, "it feels like the apocalypse is just around the corner" with the possibility of civil unrest and riots unraveling the social order. So people are intrigued to see a depiction of what that might look like on the screen, as they believe government may not be able to protect them. Among the addtional projects she referenced were Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, iZombie, World War Z, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Braindead (CBS TV series), and The Strain.

Third Secret of Fatima / Mysterious Astana C2C March 18, 2018

Paul Stark, director of The Vatican Deception, and Joanna Swords of the Fatima Center joined Richard Syrett to discuss the key questions that have remained unanswered regarding the mysterious Third Secret of Fatima. Swords said that "Fatima stands alone" in its uniqueness as a vision of the Virgin Mary because the revelations revealed during the miracle had far-reaching implications. Stark said that the time of the Fatima event was important because there was a movement of secularization in Portugal at the time, and WWI was just beginning. He also remarked that some of the prophecies given concerned the importance of Russia, which experienced a Communist revolution just afterwards. Swords reported that one of the priest advocates for true revelation of the Secret was actually assaulted under orders from the authorities at the Shrine of Fatima.

Stark discussed the life of Sister Lucia Santos, who was the last surviving member of the group of children who witnessed the Miracle and said that they received messages from the apparition. In the early 1940s, she was asked to reveal the Third Secret, but apparently found it "far too horrific to write down." Eventually, she did record it, but declared it could not be revealed until 1960. In 2002, the Vatican released what it said was the secret, but some who claimed to have seen the prophecy (such as frequent Coast guest the late Father Malachai Martin) declared that it revealed there would be a great crisis of faith in the Church, as well as a "level of suffering throughout the entire world, that the world has never seen before" Stark said. Both guests are convinced that elements in the Vatican are keeping the actual Third Secret under wraps in a bid to secularize and weaken the authority of the Church and faith of Catholics worldwide.

In the second half, architectural historian, Frank Albo discussed the hidden complexities and symbols embedded deep within the remarkable city of Astana in Kazakhstan, called the "Illuminati Capital in the World." Albo wrote his University thesis on the symbolism of the Legislative Building in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. The edifice was modeled on King Solomon’s Temple and Albo’s study was so revealing that the premier of the Province gave him full access to the building and records, as well as a two-year grant to produce a full report. Albo has been called "Canada’s Dan Brown," but he says that Brown "is writing books of fiction and I am not."

His newest project is a book about the 20-year old city of Kazakhstan, Astana, which literally means "Capitol" in the Kazakh language. Albo does not believe that the city has any Illuminati connections, but that it does have a deep significance for Nursultan Nazarbayev, the autocratic ruler of the country, who had a close hand in its design. He describes the city as "Las Vegas on steroids," complete with a massive glass pyramid, skyscrapers resembling the ancient towers of Solmon’s Temple, and a Presidential Palace that is "a mirror knock-off of the White House," but immensely larger. The city is the first one modeled on the ancient Sumerian creation myth of Etana, and also designed to represent religious tolerance, ecological sustainability, and non-nuclear proliferation. Albo announced a challenge to solve a puzzle encoded in his book which awards a prize worth $30,000 with a trip to Astana.

Men in America, the Facts

'Men in America': It's odd how rarely you hear the problems with American men publicly acknowledged. Our leaders pledge to create more opportunities for women and girls, whom they imply are failing. Men are fine. But are they? The numbers say otherwise.
FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service dedicated to delivering breaking news as well as political and business news. The number one network in cable, FNC has been the most watched television news channel for more than 15 years and according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, is the most trusted television news source in the country. Owned by 21st Century Fox, FNC is available in more than 90 million homes and dominates the cable news landscape, routinely notching the top ten programs in the genre.

C2C March 16, 2018 Nephilim War / Open Lines

Ryan Pitterson is a biblical researcher who has written a comprehensive study of the Nephilim: half-human, half-angelic beings, who were said to be superhuman giants. Pitterson joined Richard Syrett to discuss the war between human and Nephilim bloodlines, exploring incompletely understood Biblical passages about "giants" and why he believes these angelic beings were 100% real. Pitterson pointed out certain sections in the Bible that described the Nephilim as giants, such as the story of Goliath, who "was someone of immense, superhuman strength." He believes that the goal of this hybridization was Satan’s plan to pollute the pure human bloodline so that no human would ever be born who could challenge him.

Pitterson remarked that other ancient sources match up with the Bible’s description of superhuman beings and their abilities to father children with human women, such as Plato’s account of the saga of Atlantis. He said that the sea god Poseidon "fell in love with a human woman and impregnated her." Also, the Bible’s description of the city of Gilgal Rephaim (the ruins of which still exist in Israel) match exactly Plato’s account of the layout of Atlantis. By the time of the great flood, Pitterson says that the prophet Noah was the only genetically pure human left and that the purpose of the flood was to "reboot the entire population and save humanity." Today, he believes that the Nephilim bloodline has been eliminated, although accounts exist from ancient Roman historians of giant skeletons on public exhibition.

Richard started off Open Lines in the latter half with a personal story about a possible phone call from his deceased friend R. Gary Patterson. William in Washington State thought that some of the stories of giants may have come from people in Nordic countries growing "to a height of 7 feet tall and even taller" during a warm spell in ancient times. Ryan called in from Massachusetts to describe his experience with strange jet sounds from the skies that would start and stop abruptly, as well as strange, heavenly "rumbling noises" that he recently experienced. Charlotte in Michigan recalled a bright light over her house and a loud boom and later found that a meteorite had fallen to Earth some 20 miles away.

It was a night of "Ryan"s as another called from New Jersey to tell about apparent phone calls he received from his deceased father, who went MIA during the Vietnam War, and whom he never met. Every March 25th (which was his father’s birthday) for many years, he said that someone would call and say one cryptic word, "safe," before hanging up. He remembered that "it sounded like radio voice, a little distant." The calls mysteriously stopped last year. Other callers said they were deeply affected by Ryan’s story. Robin from Vermont drew parallels between the Nephilim story and passages in the famous channeled book of Urantia. He also believes that there may be "patterns of thought passed down by our ancestors that could be influencing us today" and not in a good way.

C2C March 15, 2018 Flexible Thinking / Alien Encounters

Leonard Mlodinow, an author with a Ph.D. in theoretical physics, talked about his new work on flexible thinking, and recalled the life of Stephen Hawking. Around 130,000 years ago there was a catastrophic event, and humans became nearly extinct. "The ones that survived," he said, "were the ones that were more exploratory...more attracted to change. Psychologists call this neophilia, love of change." As time went on, these bolder humans sought new areas to expand, and this fostered their spread around the world. This capacity, along with imagination, idea generation, and divergent approaches, Mlodinow classifies as "elastic thinking" which we see in people that explore, invent, and innovate.

The recently deceased Stephen Hawking could undoubtedly be considered an elastic thinker, said Mlodinow, with his breakthrough research into black holes at a time when few others thought it was worth investigating. The brilliant scientist was almost superhuman, he added, as he was given just two years to live at age 25 with the diagnosis of ALS but managed to live for more than 50 years after that. Beyond science, Mlodinow noted, elastic thinking is also essential in the arts, and in one's everyday life, because otherwise, you can get stuck in a rut, and not attempt to change or improve your circumstance.

In the latter half, paranormal investigator, author, and researcher, Rosemary Ellen Guiley discussed her most recent book, written with Michael Brein, compiling accounts and personal encounters with alien beings and their craft, including abductions, and missing time. First-hand eyewitness accounts are particularly compelling forms of evidence, she cited, even though they are sometimes derided by the public. Types of 'high strangeness' around the encounters include inexplicable visits from Men in Black warning the witnesses not to speak about what they saw, as well as haunting and poltergeist phenomena, and the sense of a presence that's always watching them.

She detailed one bizarre case from crop circle researcher Ron Russell, who interviewed some young people who spent the night skywatching on Silbury Hill in England, and saw little orange lights that shape-shifted into tetrahedron-shaped orange pods containing small beings the size of children sitting in the lotus position. This description, said Guiley, is typical of the 'trickster' element of cases that have very odd aspects which don't seem to make logical sense. She also recounted the terrifying abductions of a man taken by insectoid or praying mantis type aliens. He sometimes reported seeing a "sidekick" with them-- a hooded humanoid with a beetle-like face, and was told there were some 14,000 aliens living in an underground base in the US.

Fake News MSM: Why Newspapers Are Going out of Business?

It was announced this week that the Denver Post will soon be cutting one-third of its newsroom staff. The newsroom currently has 100 reporters, and that will soon be cut by 30 positions.

Reporters and other observers quickly began to look for whom to blame.

One reporter quickly blamed the hedge fund (Alden Global Capital) that owns the Post: " 30 people to be cut from @denverpost by April 9. This hedge fund won’t quit killing journalism to meet its bottom line."

This latest development comes mere weeks after the Denver Post announced it was erecting a pay wall around the site, no doubt in hopes of capturing more revenue.

At the time, one of the Post's columnists blamed the readers themselves for the newspaper's woes, implying that freeloaders were making it too difficult to deliver a media product and still keep the lights on. "We're so over working for free," the columnist concluded.

Well, now it appears that a third of the newsroom won't be working at all since, apparently, the paywall isn't bringing in as much revenue as hoped.

How Can Newspapers Stay in Business?

There is nothing unique about the Denver Post, of course. Old legacy newspapers across the country — from large shops like the Chicago Tribune to small ones like the Mt. Vernon Register-News — are laying off staff and sometimes even closing down completely.

But what can newspapers do to stay in business and avoid layoffs?

Well, the challenge for newspapers in this regard is no different than with any other market endeavor.

In order to stay in business, firms must be able to offer consumers a product at a price that the consumer is willing to pay.

If consumers seem unwilling to pay for access to newspapers, this means the quality is perceived as being too low for the price demanded. The solution lies in either increasing the perceived quality, or reducing the price.
Recent studies have shown that many consumers — especially younger ones — are willing to pay for their news. In fact, the American Press Institute (API) concluded that "nearly 4 in 10 adults under age 35 are paying for news." But here's the rub - those who are still considering paying for news are price sensitive. The API's surveys suggests consumers aren't interested in paying more than one dollar per week (or 4-5 dollars per month) for their newspapers. Unfortunately for the newspapers, many of them are asking for more than double that rate. The Denver Post demands 12 dollars per month to get past the paywall. That's even more than The New York Times, which charges eight dollars per month.

Both of these publications could overcome this problem by either convincing consumers that the product is worth more than a dollar per week. Or, the newspapers can find a way to reduce their production costs so that one dollar per week is sufficient to turn a profit.

Why Newspapers Are Unlikely to Provide What Consumers Want

It seems that many newspapers are unwilling to do this.

Indeed, there is an often-expressed sentiment among reporters, editors, and other newspaper staff that they are under-appreciated and that consumers should just be willing to pay more for access to newspapers. In other words, the belief among newspaper staff is "our quality is already fine, thank you very much. We perform an indispensable public service!" If the public is unwilling to see just how high the quality of newspaper work is, some seem to think, it just must be because the consumers are ignorant, prejudiced, or cheap.

Now, it is arguably true that, as newspaper industry people claim, some of the reporting done by newspapers benefits society as a whole. For example, investigative journalism that exposes government corruption has benefits beyond the mere reading enjoyment of subscribers. Even people who aren't subscribers and never read the publications in question benefit from these activities.

But only a small portion of what newspapers do even qualifies under this "public service" umbrella. Most papers devote the lion's share of effort to coverage of sports, movies, the local bar scene, and local ribbon cuttings. At the same time, reporters with no actual experience or qualifications in public policy, economics, or business, churn out columns in the opinion pages. None of this counts as a "public service." Most of it is just entertainment or self-serving filler.

So, relying on the "public service" argument — and attempting to guilt people into paying more for newspapers — isn't likely to pay the bills. As media scholar Clay Shirky has noted:

The newspaper people often note that newspapers benefit society as a whole. This is true, but irrelevant to the problem at hand; “You’re gonna miss us when we’re gone!” has never been much of a business model.

And this business model will become even more a failure as the competition for the public's time, money, and attention intensifies.

This competition takes several forms. It comes from other media such as television, YouTube, and free online commentary on any number of topics from sports, to media, to politics. Newspapers also long ago lost the competition with organizations like Craigslist which made revenue-producing classified ads in newspapers obsolete. In other words, the quality of services offered by newspapers is not perceived as high enough to draw consumers away from the competition.

In most industries, entrepreneurs and firms will respond to new competition by attempting to offer a better product at a competitive price. And by "better" I mean something that the consumers are more likely to want. But that's not how they roll in the newspaper industry. Rather than find a new business model that might entice readers back to where they might be willing to pay more for content, the main strategy of the newspapers, it seems, has been to blame their customers for being ungrateful.

It's this lofty attitude about providing virtuous public service that leads many reporters to claim that it's the job of newspaper owners to "quit killing journalism" when the owners demand that newspaper turn a sufficiently large profit. It's this attitude that leads reports to complain about how reporters are "underpaid" instead of simply asking "what can we do to convince people to pay us more?" According to this way of thinking, everyone should be willing to make sacrifices — whether in the form of less profit or too-high prices — to keep the newspapers in business.

Why People Don't Want to Pay More for News

As much as reporters might fancy themselves the voice of the people against the powers that be, the fact is that few people trust reporters, or see them as reliable sources of information. It's likely even fewer see reporters as tribunes of the people. After all, according to Politico, only 7 percent of reporters identify as Republican. Four times as many identify as Democrats. Meanwhile, 37 percent of Americans overall identify as Republicans. While Party affiliation is not a reliable guide on one's position on every issue, the general situation is nevertheless clear. It's no wonder that during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, journalists seemed to regard Trump voters as bizarre eccentrics at best, and as violent extremists at worst. And "the people" appear to have picked up on this. According to Gallup, trust in the media in 2016 dropped to an all-time low, with only 32 percent of those polled saying they have trust and confidence in the mass media "to report the news fully, accurately and fairly."

Moreover, in recent years, the journalistic standard of "objectivity," always something of a fantasy in practice, has fallen away even as an ideal, as Sharyl Attkisson at The Hill writes:

Firewalls that once strictly separated news from opinion have been replaced by hopelessly blurred lines. Once-forbidden practices such as editorializing within straight news reports, and the inclusion of opinions as if fact, are not only tolerated; they’re encouraged.

Given this reality, it's not difficult to see why many news outlets are having such a hard time convincing a large part of their audience to fork over cold, hard cash. If the customers think they're going to be treated with contempt, they're unlikely to want to pay for the newspapers' end product.

Without a fundamental change in how newspapers and reporters see themselves, it's hard to see how they'll overcome the problem to high prices and perceptions of low quality. As with all successful market enterprises, the answer lies in providing a product the consumer is willing to pay for. But for now, all the evidence suggests that newspaper just aren't very good at that.

Fake News Mainstream Media Already Hit with Massive Layoffs in 2018

By the time President Trump’s presidency is over, one of the biggest pieces of fake news we will look back on is when we were told by the media that Trump was good for the media business. According to what is happening in a place called the real world, the truth is that business for the media is horrible.

We will start with the Denver Post, which announced Thursday that, between April 9 and July 1, 30 jobs will be cut from its newsroom. That is a massive 30 percent cut of its current staff of 100 journalists.  Just 10 years ago according to the far-left Washington Post, the Denver Post employed 600 journalists. That is close to a 90 percent reduction in only a decade.

Just a few hours later we learned that another wave of surprise layoffs hit the Chicago Tribune. Fourteen newsroom staffers were let go in that publication’s second round of layoffs in less than six months. Back in October more than a dozen were let go. Roger Federer reports that “Further cuts are expected as the newspaper prepares to leave Tribune Tower for smaller space at Prudential Plaza.”

Last month, the San Jose Mercury News was hit with another round of terminations, as many as 27 staffers were either laid off or bought out.

In late January, the East Bay Times wiped out a quarter of its editorial staff through layoffs and buy outs — a total of 28 staffers.

We also learned in January that a total of five publications owned by Southern California News Group will face “significant layoffs,” including the OC Register and Los Angeles Daily News.

On our cable dials, while Fox News and MSNBC are open about their respective biases and thrive, the far-left CNN is not only collapsing in the ratings but dealing with some massive layoffs of its own. Over the past few years, CNN, which continues its ludicrous pose as an objective news organization,  has been in a credibility death spiral, and that is finally starting to take a real tool on the anti-Trump cable channel.

None of this should be surprising.  Americans are losing faith in the media, and for good reason. The belligerent biases, the unrelenting fake news. As an example, just look at the past 18 hours. Both ProPublica and the New York Times have been caught spreading fake news about Gina Haspel, Trump’s pick to run the CIA, and the Washington media falsely reported that Trump had fired his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster.

Alternately, this same media missed completely the biggest political story of the last 60 days — Trump replacing his secretary of state with his CIA director and choosing a woman to lead the spy agency, a historic first.

Our media is shockingly useless, constantly playing catch up with actual news while obsessing over rumor and innuendo.

Consider the fact that the media that protected Bill Clinton — a man who as president committed perjury to cover up his sexual affair with a young intern, an affair conducted just a few rooms away from his wife and daughter in the  Oval Office — is now obsessed over a porn star’s story that she might have had a consensual affair with Trump more than a decade ago.

When women credibly accused Clinton of rape, groping, and harassment, our media joined the White House in destroying them as liars. But this same media hoping to turn a 12-year-old consensual relationship into a national scandal.

Americans are tired of the media lying to them, misleading them, lecturing them… Today, there are plenty of alternative sources of news. No one needs to put up with what is called the MSM anymore.

Which reminds me…

To protect Barack Obama’s anemic economic “recovery,” our media tried to convince us that unemployment  in the Obama era, was really “funemployment.” When the working class, those our elitist media despise, lose their jobs to illegal immigrants, unfair trade deals, and oppressive and unnecessary environmental regulations, the media have dismissively suggested that they all catch up with the times and learn computer code.
So let me be the first to wish all of these “journalists” a Happy Funemployment and wish them luck all the luck in the world with their new careers as computer coders.

Are Todays Young Males The Real Victims?

With all of the howling going on in America today about bullying I find it ironic that much of it emanates from the Gestapo known as “public school teachers.”  There is nothing as dangerous to masculinity as the nine months most boys spend sitting under the thumb of the testosterone-tamers hell-bent on disconnecting boys from their natural male impulses.

I don’t care how politically correct it might sound but there are very few women capable of training a little boy how to be a man.  The 7 1/2 hours a day that a young male spends being trained exclusively by women is detrimental to their manhood.  I see it everywhere I look.

The inner city is especially dangerous.  Statistics indicate that nearly 70% of young African American males live in homes where there is no father present.  They are then shipped out the door to the local indoctrination center where 90% of the staff is female.  If, perchance, a young man finds himself in trouble he is rapidly dispensed to the Principal’s office where his unruly behavior is disciplined by…you guessed it…a female Principal.

For the super majority of young black men the first opportunity that he will have to be mentored by a man is when he steps foot on the athletic field.  That is, if he makes it that far without dropping out or being academically ineligible.

Finding a man in an elementary school is about as rare as finding an NRA member at a Hillary for President rally.  Is it any wonder the average American male has no idea what it means to “act like a man?”  Try as they might, most American women do not really understand what makes real men tick.  Our schools are full of “independent” women who finally have a chance to make men behave the way women want them to.

Save your catcalls.  Look around.  Have you noticed the number of millennial males still living with their parents long after they should have flown from the coup?  Have you noticed the propensity of men who are more interested in wearing skinny jeans than they are camo gear?

Who is training the boys?  Why is it so obvious that men are becoming less masculine and more compliant?  Our young men are being trained to be soft.  Getting in touch with your feelings is not an activity designed for men. Not all female teachers are bad for young guys but there is a serious assault on manhood in America and it is being led by the feminazis in our public schools.

I spent a career as a public school teacher/coach and I could tell you horror stories of the experiences that I had with women faculty whose sole purpose in life was to make the star football player bow to her every whim.  Many of the women HATED strong-willed teenage boys and they did the best they could to bully the testosterone right out of them.

I remember the day when young men were taught “man-up” and take responsibility for their lives.  Today to even use the term “man-up” is to be accused of being misogynistic. It is hard to turn him into a man when he is being punished for acting like one.  Males…the natural leader type…do not respond well to the badgering of bossy women.  Often the teachers are more interested in teaching the young man WHO is boss than showing him how to BE the boss.

I always tell the men in my life that you are born a male but you are a man by choice.

Dang, I bet I am making a lot of Jezebels mad today.  Spare me the emails.  Don’t waste your time trying to put me in my place.  I know my place and it is not under the thumb of a bossy woman.

Today was another fine example of it.  All across America students walked out of their school in protest of guns.  I happened to be speaking at a public school today as the walkout took place and I asked the class that I was addressing if there was going to be a walkout the next day in support of gun ownership.  They looked at me as if I had just passed gas.

“Aren’t there any of you in this class that support gun ownership?”  A beaten-down young feller in the corner of the room raised his hand halfway into the air.

“Great!” I exhorted him! “When are you going to organize the I-support-guns-walkout?  You certainly aren’t they only student at this school that supports guns?  Does anyone else support guns?”  I asked.  A few more male hands crawled cautiously in the air.

“So who is going to go to the principal and organize a gun rally?  I’ll join with you!”

No takers.  They were all afraid to express how they really felt.  The bossy girls in the class were too busy putting them down for caring about guns more than their classmates.

Strong American males are a vanishing species in this nation and I am not afraid to point out that decades of being trained by women has born a heap big pile of rotten fruit in the hearts of the once valiant American male.

No wonder we have seen an avalanche of pornography pour over this nation as young men struggle to find their way in this feminist driven society in which we live.  At least when the young guys are viewing porn they don’t have to deal with the lady on the screen putting down their every move.

My guess is that the gun marches at schools all across America today were organized by women…or men who act like women.

Laugh if you want to.  Call me names if that is how you normally talk to men.  But men get it.  They are just too demoralized to fight.   I wonder how many of the school shooters had a strong man in their lives?

Men who understand true Biblical masculinity are a vanishing breed.  There is no group more bullied than the young American male.

C2C March 14, 2018 Debate: Curtis vs. Bloom/ Animal Communication

In the first half, online columnist John M. Curtis and author, researcher Howard Bloom debated various topics in the news including President Trump, Russia, North Korea, the economy, and the media. Bloom characterized Trump as an unreliable president constantly spouting falsehoods (2,436 lies in 355 days according to the Washington Post), and coming close to treason with his campaign's involvement with Russia. Curtis countered that the news media, including papers such as the Washington Post and the New York Times are 93% against Trump, and have been hijacked by the Democratic party, such that we no longer have objective journalism.

Curtis suggested that Trump doesn't receive enough credit for his successes, such as recently getting North Korea to come to the table for negotiations, and their possible nuclear disarmament. Bloom was skeptical that Kim Jong-un has any intention of compromising their nuclear program, and was likely just manipulating Trump. Discussing the Russian attempt to sway the 2016 election, Bloom noted that all the stolen emails came from the Clinton campaign and the Democrats, and there was nothing from the Republican side. Reacting to the debate, the results of our online Instapoll of listeners, showed that 77% favored Curtis, 20.3% sided with Bloom, and 2.7% called it a draw.

A channel of animal consciousness who shares messages from the animal kingdom for the benefit of humans, Sandra Mendelson, appeared in the latter half. She detailed how she was awakened to her ability to communicate with animals beginning with a horse that conveyed he was unhappy with his hay, which upon closer inspection turned out to have mold. Since then, she has communicated with a wide variety of critters, including insects and aquatic creatures.

Animals, she explained, feel the energy of Mother Earth and get their information from many sources, including birds. They are all individuals on their own path. A blind cat told her that "she chose her human mom as much as she chose me." A chimpanzee, she tuned into, was rather bitter about his experiences with humans. A squirrel bragged about his athletic abilities. Interestingly, insects spoke to her as one, and revealed they chose their lives of anonymity to relinquish the ego, and that they weave patterns of energy humans do not see.
