Is a Stroke in Your Future?

Having diagonal creases across your ear lobes may mean you are at increased risk of suffering a stroke, according to new research. Scientists who examined 241 people who had experienced a stroke found more than three-quarters of them had the mark, known as Frank’s sign, on their ears. It’s thought that clogging of the arteries, which increases the risk of a stroke, also leads to poor blood supply to the ear lobes. This would cause a loss of elasticity and, in turn, the visible creasing. The Israeli researchers who uncovered the findings said doctors should consider adding the ear lobe … Continue reading

Demolition of the Left

Egalitarianism as a Revolt against Nature, and Other Essays is vital reading for anyone interested in the thought of Murray Rothbard. The book is his comprehensive effort to present libertarianism as a “science of liberty.” In order to grasp libertarianism as a worldview, he argues, we must take hold of a fundamental fact. As he makes clear in the book’s title essay, “Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature,” libertarianism rests on the incontrovertible fact that people are different. Procrustean efforts to impose equality are inimical to liberty. This has not prevented egalitarianism from being the dominant ideology of our age. … Continue reading

Can a Heart Be Hacked?

A tech security evaluation has found a whopping 8,000 software vulnerabilities in the code of pacemakers. Security research firm WhiteScope carried out the assessment on implantable cardiac devices, physician programmers and home monitoring devices for four major manufacturers. The researchers found a worrying consistency across all vendors, highlighting inherent system weaknesses in file system encryption and storage of unencrypted patient data. The report notes that pacemaker security faces “some serious challenges”.

Telling the Truth About JFK’s Murder

As we commemorate JFK’s 100th anniversary, we find the media regurgitating their failed propaganda and covering-up the truth about his murder and the conspiracies surrounding it.

For more in-depth information, listen to Lew’s podcasts with the authors. Hence, as we remember JFK and his presidency, let’s chose to revisit the conspiracies and many of the facts that can’t be kept from us forever. Time to buy old US gold coins … Continue reading

Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York

This article reviews the “mysterious” phenomenon of IDs and Passports of terror suspects routinely discovered (often in the rubble) in the wake of a terrorist attack. In most cases the alleged suspect was known to the authorities. Is there a pattern?  The ID papers of the suspect are often left behind, discovered by police in the wake of a terrorist attack. According to government and media reports, the suspects are without exception linked to an Al Qaeda affiliated entity.    None of these terror suspects survived. Dead men do not talk.  In the case of the tragic events in Manchester, the bankcard of … Continue reading

The Real Story of Zbigniew Brzezinski

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former national security advisor to President Jimmy Carter, died Friday at a hospital in Virginia at the age of 89. Though the New York Times acknowledged that the former government advisor was a “hawkish strategic theorist,” misrepresenting his legacy as one of otherwise infinite positivity may not be as easy as the establishment might like to think. As the United Kingdom plays around with levels of the so-called “terror threat” following a devastating attack by an ISIS-inspired individual — and as the Philippines goes into an almost complete state of martial law following ISIS-inspired destruction — Brzezinski’s timely … Continue reading

Spain Is Holding Catalonia Hostage

Imagine you are in a book club. For a few years, it was great, you liked the books and the discussion with members. But then, the club started reading steamy romance novels that you just weren’t into and would not entertain your opinions for other material. Finally, when you can’t relate to the discussion on the texts anymore, you decide to leave the club. But then, the book club President locks the door and tells you to sit down. You will remain in the club, the other members tell you, whether you like it or not. You will read the … Continue reading

Would Jesus Celebrate Memorial Day?

Memorial Day, as we all know, is not just the official beginning of the summer vacation season. It is a federal holiday that commemorates U.S. soldiers who died in military service for their country. Although it was first observed in honor of Union soldiers who died during the War to Prevent Southern Independence, after World War I, Memorial Day was expanded to include soldiers who died in vain and for a lie in any unnecessary U.S. war. Since the beginning of the senseless and immoral wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Memorial Day has degenerated into a holiday to honor all … Continue reading

We’re Dealing With a New Type of War Lie

When the U.S. public was told that Spain had blown up the Maine, or Vietnam had returned fire, or Iraq had stockpiled weapons, or Libya was planning a massacre, the claims were straightforward and disprovable. Before people began referring to the Gulf of Tonkin incident, somebody had to lie that it had happened, and there had to be an understanding of what had supposedly happened. No investigation into whether anything had happened could have taken as its starting point the certainty that a Vietnamese attack or attacks had happened. And no investigation into whether a Vietnamese attack had happened could … Continue reading

Give It Your Best Shot

Americans know this phrase: “Give it your best shot!” Have you ever given anything your best shot? Coaches use this phrase: “He gave 110%.” When was the last time you gave 110%? Never forget the Pareto 20/80 distribution. About 20% of your efforts produce 80% of the value of your output. So, give almost nothing your best shot. Reserve your best shot for the top 4% (20% of 20%). Save your 110% efforts for the top .8% (20% of 20% of 20%). One of the big challenges in life is to identify those few things that deserve your best shot. … Continue reading

America Invaded

Fantastic, I know.  Perhaps you are thinking, “what – is this a post about the War of 1812?”  After all, that might be the last (if not only) time that one would consider the statement in the title to be true. It has long helped that the United States was protected from invasion by two vast oceans.  It also helps that the United States spends more on military, intelligence, security than much of the rest of the world combined.  It also helps that the population is well armed. To the extent one considers Pearl Harbor or 911 an invasion, the … Continue reading

Bad News for Gun Grabbers

In addition to being history’s greatest gun salesman, Barack Obama did the best job of convincing John Q. Public there really is a need for concealed carry. John Q. paid attention and turned out by the thousands. Also under Obama’s watch the last two concealed carry hold-out states – Wisconsin and Illinois – passed laws permitting residents to carry a concealed firearm. Of course, the Birkenstock Brigade fought it in both states warning of dire consequences, casually ignoring the other 48 states not experiencing any problem with concealed carry permit holders. So far, no blood running in the streets, no … Continue reading
