When is stress good for you? The subtle flows and toxic hits of stress get under the skin, making and breaking the body and brain over a lifetime

https://www.sott.net/image/s20/407364/full/header_baloon_burst_essay.jpg

Stress pervades our lives. We become anxious when we hear of violence, chaos or discord. And, in our relatively secure world, the pace of life and its demands often lead us to feel that there is too much to do in too little time. This disrupts our natural biological rhythms and encourages unhealthy behaviours, such as eating too much of the wrong things, neglecting exercise and missing out on sleep.

Why the media has broken down in the age of Trump

http://republicbuzz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/20170702/794540_trump_media_720.jpg

I’ve been a journalist for a long time. Long enough to know that it wasn’t always like this. There was a time not so long ago when journalists were trusted and admired. We were generally seen as trying to report the news in a fair and straightforward manner. Today, all that has changed. For that, we can blame the 2016 election or, more accurately, how some news organizations chose to cover it. Among the many firsts, last year’s election gave us the gobsmacking revelation that most of the mainstream media puts both thumbs on the scale — that most of what you read, watch and listen to is distorted by intentional bias and hostility. I have never seen anything like it. Not even close.

The Left’s War on Free Speech

http://www.bookwormroom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Left-and-Right-free-speech.png

What is to be done? For starters, we need to be aware that this is happening, and that it is not random. The intimidation game is very real. It is the work of left-wing groups and politicians, it is coordinated, and it is well-honed. Many of the targets of intimidation who I interviewed for my recent book weren’t aware of what was happening to them, and that allowed the intimidation to go on for too long. Awareness is key.

Did Trump cause the end of the world?

Man-caused global cooling global warming climate change is not science. It’s a faith-based quasi-religion/money laundering scheme of hokum, balderdash and outright lies. Look no further for evidence of this than the hyperbolic overreaction to Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would not abide by the Paris accords.  Only those whose messiah had been slain or who had had their money bags ripped from their hands would overreact to such extremes...

The Genetic Dead Ends Who Rule Europe

The Genetic Dead Ends Who Rule Europe - Taki's Magazine

A continent ruled by the sterile and inhabited by those who’ve been brainwashed or demoralized into choosing sterility themselves will have no posterity in the classical sense. Instead, they will be overrun by people from alien cultures who may not have developed much in the way of technology or philosophy but who at least possess the genetic wisdom to be fertile.

Theory from the ruins: The Frankfurt school argued that reason is dangerous, mass culture deadening, and the Enlightenment a disaster. Were they right?

'One wants to break free of the past,’ Theodor Adorno, one of the Frankfurt School’s leading luminaries, wrote in an essay in 1959. ‘Rightly, because nothing at all can live in its shadow, and because there will be no end to the terror as long as guilt and violence are repaid with guilt and violence; wrongly, because the past that one would like to evade is still very much alive.’ In an age when the meanings of the past and the functions they are called upon to serve are so hotly contested, Adorno’s insight reminds us, in a typically double-edged way, that humanity is both composed of and trapped inside its history.

Globalists Are Building An Army Of Millennials To Destroy Sovereignty

In terms of Western culture, recent events would indicate that globalists hope to enlist the newest generation to reach “maturity” (and I use that term loosely), the millennials, as a weapon to deal the death blow to conservatism. If not directly, then indirectly through propagation.  That is to say, if the globalists can’t kill us off immediately, they will try to breed us and our ideas out after bringing down the hammer of economic and social crisis.

Doug Casey on the End of Western Civilization

https://dailynewsinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/doug-casey-on-the-end-of-western-civilization.jpg

Western Civilization has its origins in ancient Greece. It’s unique among the world’s civilizations in putting the individual—as opposed to the collective—in a central position. It enshrined logic and rational thought—as opposed to mysticism and superstition—as the way to deal with the world. It’s because of this that we have science, technology, great literature and art, capitalism, personal freedom, the concept of progress, and much, much more. In fact, almost everything worth having in the material world is due to Western Civilization.

SMARTPHONES ARE THE NEW CIGARETTES

Smartphones are the New Cigarettes

 

http://technabob.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/cigarette_box_mobile_phone.jpg

The same way second-hand smoke harms the lungs of people around the smoker, smartphones harm the attention and focus of people around the smartphone user. It hijacks our senses. It forces us to pause our conversations and redouble our thoughts unnecessarily. It causes us to lose our train of thought and forget that important point we were constructing in our head. It erodes at our ability to connect and simply be present with one another, destroying intimacy in the process.

Progressive lies about Islam

... ?’ - NationofChange | Progressive Change Through Positive Action

Pew Research has released a comprehensive study based on their estimate of 1.3 billion Muslims in the world. Pew took a snapshot of how the Muslim world felt during a four-year-study that included 38,000 face-to-face interviews in 39 countries. The good news according to Pew is that the majority of Muslims, 78 percent, do not openly support murdering infidels for Allah. The bad news is that more than 20 percent of the 1.3 to 1.5 billion Muslims in the world support violent jihad. This translates to more than 300 million Muslims who support the murder of apostate, blasphemers, gay people, cartoonists that depict Mohammad and women of questionable moral fiber. One group that studied the Pew report concluded that the Muslim world is radicalizing at breakneck speed.

The Out-of-Control and Biased Censorship Policies of Facebook, Germany, and Europe in general

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/pics/2218.jpg

Statements that are deemed illegal under German law are now being conflated with statements that are merely deemed, subjectively and on the basis of entirely random complaints from social media users -- who are free to abuse the code of conduct to their heart's content -- to be "hate speech". "Hate speech" has included critiques of Chancellor Angela Merkel's migration policies. To be in disagreement with the government's policies is now potentially "criminal". Social media companies, such as Facebook, are supposed to be the German government's informers and enforcers -- qualified by whom and in what way?

Islam in the West Silences a Dissenting Voice: Ayaan Hirsi Ali Tour Cancelled

http://www.jezblog.com/images/aithiest_ayaan_hirsi_ali.jpg

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is someone who fled genital mutilation and arranged marriage in a backward, barbarous society to come to the west and live in freedom. Her first stop was the Netherlands. She was forced to leave the Netherlands, and has lived with round-the-clock security ever since. Now she has to cross Australia off the list, too. Where's next? Can she speak in Sweden? Or Canada? Ireland or Germany? She left Somalia to live as a western woman, only to watch the west turn itself into Somalia, incrementally but remorselessly, at least as far as free speech is concerned.

YOU WILL NEVER HEAR THESE TRUTHS DISCUSSED IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA

media questions

The general public truly lives in two separate worlds. We have the world of the mainstream media, popular culture and political rhetoric; a world which constantly and desperately seeks to twist or destroy any legitimate measure of reality. Then, we have the world of concrete facts; an ugly, brutal world that upsets many people when they see it and leaves them with little more than the hope that the most innovative of us will perhaps reverse the disastrous course, or at least, survive to carry on a meaningful level of civilization.

White Privilege vs. White Death in America

https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/vdare-live/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/27212541/white-privalege-672x336.jpg

The downturn in life expectancy has occurred despite continued advances in medical technology that are steadily boosting life spans in other countries. In 2015, life expectancy fell for Americans overall, stemming in part to a sudden spike in black male death rates, perhaps due to the Ferguson Effect of blacks shooting blacks in increasing numbers following the rise of Black Lives Matter in 2014. But mostly the decline was caused by continued increases in death rates for young and middle-aged whites.

How To Counter Political Islam - The West must not tolerate the intolerant strain of Islam

Time to Debunk Political Islam

Political Islam is not just a religion as most Western citizens recognize the term “religion,” a faith; it is also a political ideology, a legal order, and in many ways also a military doctrine associated with the campaigns of the Prophet Muhammad. Political Islam rejects any kind of distinction between religion and politics, mosque and state. Political Islam even rejects the modern state in favor of a caliphate. There is no point in denying that political Islam as an ideology has its foundation in Islamic doctrine. However, “Islam,” “Islamism,” and “Muslims” are distinct concepts. Not all Muslims are Islamists, let alone violent, but all Islamists—including those who use violence—are Muslims.

The Coming Islamic Culture War: What the Middle East's Internet Boom Means for Gay Rights, and More

http://www.powerlineblog.com/ed-assets/2012/06/islamicculture.jpg

Access to the Internet is now growing rapidly in Muslim-majority countries. This boom is occurring in some of the most conservative societies on Earth, where ideas contrary to or critical of a strict interpretation of Islam are often stigmatized or even punished. With regard to sexuality, for instance, most Muslim societies consider discussions of homosexuality and LGBT rights to be off-limits. Several states deem homosexuality an offense punishable by death.

THE ONE WORLD GLOBALIST HIVE-MIND: Why do leftists and globalists hate nationalism and tribalism so much?

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_ABGPVM9KZ0s/TTF7BeRbe9I/AAAAAAAAACM/IHxoWz97JOg/s1600/trade-globalization1.jpg

Globalists prefer an outcome in which traditional values are erased and replaced with a “new world order” mindset. A system that is rooted in collectivist suppression of individual liberty, where freedom is exchanged for “harmony;” one global tribe worshiping one global god — the state. Leftists are in most cases merely useful idiots that promote multiculturalism as a means of “penance.” That is to say, they believe that traditional Western culture should be punished for past transgressions and in due course, phased out completely in exchange for a new Utopian system.

DONALD TRUMP, AND THE DEATH OF THE AMERICAN PRESS

http://www.newyorker.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Remnick-Donald-Trump-and-the-Enemies-of-the-American-People-1200-630.jpg

Everyone knows that the American press typically tilts left, and no one is surprised, for instance, that The New York Times has not endorsed a Republican candidate since 1956. But that’s not what we’re seeing now—rather, the media has become an instrument in a campaign of political warfare. What was once an American political institution and a central part of the public sphere became something more like state-owned media used to advance the ruling party’s agenda and bully the opposition into silence. Russia’s RT network, the emir of Qatar’s Al Jazeera network—indeed, all of the Arab press—and media typically furnished by Third World regimes became the American press’ new paradigm; not journalism, but information operation.

Why Is China So … Uncool? The country's got all the right stuff to be a soft-power giant. But Beijing won't get out of its own way.

Why Is China So … Uncool?

Beijing still fails to grasp that soft power arises when individuals have room to create and grow — without fear of censorship or the need to conform to a government agenda. Popular culture becomes popular because, somewhere along the way, it pushes the boundaries of what is socially acceptable or recognized.

France's Death Spiral

https://www.blazingcatfur.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/France-rioting-2017.png

In 1990, the "Gayssot law" was passed, stipulating that "any discrimination based on ethnicity, nation, race or religion is prohibited". Since then, it has been used to criminalize any criticism of Arab and African delinquency, any question on immigration from the Muslim world, any negative analysis of Islam. Many writers have been fined and most "politically incorrect" books on those topics have disappeared from bookshops.

The American Media Is Destroyed By Trump And Its Own Hubris

Trump, the Media, and ‘Working the Refs’ | BPI Campus

The problem is not just that the media is often not reliable, but that it is predictably unreliable. It has ceased to exist as an auditor of government. Ironically the media that sacrificed its reputation to glorify Obama and demonize Trump has empowered the new President in a way never quite seen before.
