RANT: CDC Cover-Up


CDC Cover-Up of Autism and Vaccine Link Continues

However, the very same U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has refused to call a hearing about another health crisis—whether or not childhood vaccines cause autism.

In August, 2014, a senior CDC researcher, Dr. William Thompson came forward and sought whistleblower status by claiming that an important 2004 paper from the CDC—which found no correlation with the MMR vaccine and autism–was fraudulent. According to Dr. Thompson, the CDC researchers actually found that the MMR vaccine, when given before 36 months of age (it is presently recommended at 12-15 months and again at five years) was significantly correlated with the development of autism. However, the CDC, in a closed-door meeting, altered the data to hide their findings. Furthermore, the authors of this 2004 paper were told, by their bosses at the CDC, to throw out and not disclose any information that showed a correlation of the MMR vaccine with autism.

I have written to about this travesty many times.

My problems is that there is no “honesty” in Gooferment.

I am more firmly convinced that the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

The politicians and bureaucrats have indemnified Big Pharma by the “vaccine harm fund”. SO there is no way to make them pay for their mistakes.

And, of course, a cover up is usually worse than the crime.

I hope whomever is the new President can “clean house”.

But, I fear, that’s too much to hope for.


I don’t envy the decision any parent has to make. And, the fact that there are no “facts” to guide them makes it even worse. At least, the old tribal witch doctor didn’t have a conflict of interest. Too many bad results and he’d be sacrificed to appease the gods. Maybe we should try that approach?

RANT: H-1B replacing American workers at Disney / ABC


Laid-off IT workers muzzled as H-1B debate heats up
By Patrick Thibodeau  
Computerworld | Jan 28, 2016 2:01 PM PT 

*** begin quote ***

In November, Blumenthal co-sponsored new H-1B legislation by longtime program critics, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), designed to prevent the replacement of U.S. workers by H-1B visa holders.

Nonetheless, Blumenthal remains a co-sponsor of the I-Squared Act, which raised questions among those laid off about his intentions.

“He is still co-sponsoring everything,” one former Connecticut utility worker said about Blumenthal. The worker asked not to be identified because of severance package limitations. “He is totally unbelievable.” Blumenthal was not immediately available for comment.

Leo Perrero, an IT worker at Disney who was laid off after training his foreign replacement, says non-disparagement agreements hinder the debate over the H-1B visa. Without such agreements, “you would have a lot more people speaking out – real human beings with real stories, not just anonymous persons speaking out,” said Perrero.

“Their freedom of speech is being taken away from them with the non-disparagement agreements,” he said.

Sorry, but I have to urge folks NOT to go to Mickey Mouse land.

Disney / ABC must be made to understand that us in the bourgeoisie or the  proletariat will not fund our own demise!

If I was the AFL / CIO, I’d be unionizing all the white collar workers.

And, we should be hammering all the politicians and bureaucrats about this abuse.

MONEY: Manipulating “We, The Sheeple” by pretending that the value of money is a constant



Inflation And Banknotes: The War on Money
By Paul-Martin Foss 
Carl Menger Center
January 28, 2016

*** begin quote ***

In practice, however, the Treasury has not printed notes above $100 since 1945, and the Federal Reserve has not issued notes above $100 since 1969. The ostensible discontinuation of those notes was due to lack of use. However, now that inflation has eroded the value of Federal Reserve notes it makes more sense than ever to issue larger denomination notes. The $20 Federal Reserve Notes that we receive at ATMs today buys the equivalent of what $3 would have purchased in 1969. And the $100 bill in 1969 would buy the equivalent of $646 today. It would make a lot of sense to begin printing $500 and $1000 bills again.

But due to the war on drugs and the war on cash, US authorities don’t want to issue bills larger than $100, as they claim it would only facilitate money laundering. By maintaining its policy of not printing notes larger than $100 and by increasing the reporting requirements on cash transactions, the Treasury has pushed more and more financial transactions into the electronic arena, where they are easier to monitor and control. The desire for control is ultimately driving factor behind the war on cash in the United States and in Europe. That’s why it’s so refreshing to see Argentina’s new government immediately enacting policies that respond to consumer demands for cash. Let’s hope that President Macri is able to bring the central bank under control so that Argentina won’t need to issue any larger banknotes in the future.

*** end quote ***

Note the effect of inflation on your wealth.

You can’t “save” in cash!

See if you use your “card”, then everything you do can be tracked.

And, it’s not just the porn buyers who have to worry. Make a contribution to the “wrong” candidate or cause and your name is on a list somewhere.

When do “they” come to load you on the train to the “reeducation camp”?

Hell, you send your children to the Gooferment Skrules everyday which is nothing more than a “reeducation camp”!

Oh yeah, it can’t happen here. Tell that to the American Citizens of Japanese Ancestry!

“I think [Yellen] wants to elect Hillary Clinton. She doesn’t want to hand the White House over to Republicans or Donald Trump. I think she doesn’t want to have happen to Hillary what happened to John McCain. When the wheels came off the bus in the last year of the Bush administration, a Republican had no chance. Obama’s whole claim to fame is that he inherited a disaster and now everything is great. The truth is he inherited a disaster and now it’s a bigger disaster…

*** end quote ***

It’s a shame because if we had a “true told standard”, the politicians could not mess with the “money” or the interest rate.

The boom ’n’ bust cycle is caused by the mistakes (what the Austrian School of Economics calls “malinvestment”) of entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate executives. Look at the empty cities that the Chinese have built for bad decisions.

When an entrepreneur, using his own capital, makes a bad decision, they bear the damage.

When the politicians and bureaucrats make a bad decision, it’s the taxpayers and Joe-Sixpack who are hurt.

Look at TARP which was passed to by distressed mortgages and allow Joe-Sixpack to stay in his home and work it out. Instead, it “magically” was transformed into a bailout for Wall Street and the Big Banks. They paid out big bonuses to their executives and, together with those executive, made big contributions to the politicians, their PACs, and their parties — both of them!

Argh! And, you wonder why I am cynical about all of them?

Wal-Mart: It Came, It Conquered, Now It’s Packing Up and Leaving

The Town’n Country grocery in Oriental, North Carolina, a local fixture for 44 years, closed its doors in October after a Wal-Mart store opened for business. Now, three months later — and less than two years after Wal-Mart arrived — the retail giant is pulling up stakes, leaving the community with no grocery store and no pharmacy.

“I was devastated when I found out. We had a pharmacy and a perfectly satisfactory grocery store. Maybe Wal-Mart sold apples for a nickel less,” said Barb Venturi, mayor pro tem for Oriental, with a population of about 900. “If you take into account what no longer having a grocery store does to property values here, it is a significant impact for us.”

What’s more: The Patriots, despite their off-the-charts winning percentage this decade, are 3-4 in Hochuli games since 2010, and he was the ref who threw a crucial offensive pass interference flag against Rob Gronkowski in the Week 10 nail-biter against the Giants.

INOVATION: Khan Academy is killing Gooferment Skrules


We Have Passed the Tipping Point for American Liberalism
Gary North – January 11, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Then I got to thinking about the Khan Academy. In recent months, it has stated that it has over 26 million enrolled students. This is in 190 countries. So, I went to Alexa.com to see what percentage of the site’s traffic is from the United States. It is approximately 50%. Inside the United States, the site is ranked number 522. This is incredibly high.

I realize that some of their students are in public school settings. But I don’t think many of them are. A few selected schools use the Khan Academy. I am convinced the overwhelming majority of these enrolled students are homeschoolers.

*** and ***

I’m not saying that we are winning this ideologically. I am saying that we are winning it institutionally and administratively.

The institutions are moving towards decentralization. This is anathema to the welfare-warfare statists. They are literally losing control, even if Salman Khan is not radically challenging the content of humanistic education. He is certainly no radical. He is a graduate of the Harvard Business School. His outlook and his teaching methods are going to shape the minds of tens of millions of students around the world. More important, they are going to shape the learning environments of these students. He is pulling them out of state-run classrooms.

The children who are coming up through the Khan Academy today go at their own pace. Nobody tells them what to do and when to do it. They take exams, and if they pass the exams, they go on to the next level. There is no one nagging them. There is no one telling them that class is over because a bell has rung. They are not being regimented.

*** end quote ***

Remember the purpose of the Prussian education model: cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite!

I hope that the author is correct.

It can’t happen fast enough to get this country back on track.

Separation of Education and State will go a long way to restoring the American vigor.

Taco Bell Nixed By South Brunswick Zoning Board

South Brunswick, NJ – You’ll have to drive elsewhere if you want some Taco Bell.

The South Brunswick Zoning Board rejected a proposal to build a Taco Bell on Rt. 1 North at New Road. The board shot down the proposal in a 5-2 vote Thursday night, according to TAPInto.

Neighbors of the lot would be negatively affected by a Taco Bell, board members said.

According to court documents filed in the case, Farrokh asked for help getting to Syria from a person who he didn’t know was an informant for the FBI. He later met with two other FBI informants he believed were people who could help him join the Islamic State group. Court documents say Farrokh expressed concerns about trusting the men and said he didn’t want to go to jail. At one meeting with them, however, he agreed to swear an oath of allegiance, court documents said. He also allegedly said that he wanted to die a martyr but did ask if his wife and family could eventually join him in Syria. He said he had other ways to get to Syria in the past that weren’t secure and needed a connection because he didn’t want to get arrested.

In thinking back on that game, there was a lot of action on the field by players not in the game, spectators, and various coaches.

That’s just not right.

Sorry, but “the game” is sacrosanct. What the players do is what should matter; not anything else.

The various administrators of the game should take steps to protect the integrity of the game.

Basketball coaches are restricted to their “box”.

POLITICAL: The minimum wage is discrimination against minority youths


Minimum Wage Dishonesty
By Walter E. Williams
January 12, 2016

*** begin quote ***

During South Africa’s apartheid era, the secretary of its avowedly racist Building Workers’ Union, Gert Beetge, said, “There is no job reservation left in the building industry, and in the circumstances, I support the rate for the job (minimum wage) as the second-best way of protecting our white artisans.” The South African Economic and Wage Commission of 1925 reported that “while definite exclusion of the Natives from the more remunerative fields of employment by law has not been urged upon us, the same result would follow a certain use of the powers of the Wage Board under the Wage Act of 1925, or of other wage-fixing legislation. The method would be to fix a minimum rate for an occupation or craft so high that no Native would be likely to be employed.”

*** end quote ***

Walter Williams is among my favorite author / economists.

He often drives a metaphorical dagger into the hearts of the phony liberals, politicians, and bureaucrats!

In this specific case, the “minimum wage”.

The liberal politicians use it to demonstrate how much they care about the poor. All they care about is getting their votes.

I can’t think of a more destructive diktat then this.

I learned this lesson when the rising Federal minimum wage “forced” AT&T to automate all their elevators. While some of the all women elevator force were able to be placed in other higher skilled jobs, many were not and were fired. I know one personally who never worked again because the minimum wage cost more than she could produce. 

Anecdotal? Sure. But that doesn’t make it real.

Look at the black youth unemployment rate and tell me that isn’t real either.

Hot Dogs: Questions and Answers

Consuming Hot Dogs Can Be Harmful to Your Health

*** begin quote ***

Multiple studies have determined that consumption of hot dogs can be a risk factor for childhood cancer.

Peters et al studied the relationship between the intake of certain foods and the risk of leukemia in children from birth to age 10 in Los Angeles County between 1980 and 1987. The study found that children who ate more than twelve hot dogs per month had nine times the normal risk of developing childhood leukemia. 

*** end quote ***

I love bacon and I ate hot dogs.

Remember that old quote that “Swift once bragged that his slaughterhouses had become so sophisticated that they used “everything but the squeal.”

Since I’ve retired, probably starting back when I became “old” somehow, and started dating a pescatarian, I’ve been working on my diet. This story about nitrites didn’t surprise me. 

Thanks to Weekly NutritionFacts.org Videos by Michael Greger, M.D. http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-bacon-good-or-is-spinach-bad/ I knew that cured meats — like bacon, ham and hot dogs — were killers and why.

That’s not to say I don’t fall off the wagon with bacon or hot dogs or other meats.

But maybe the sauerkraut on the hot dog helps?

Boy, I miss them.

However, if I want to live to a 1,000, bye bye everything but fruit, nuts, and plants. 

Laff, when I’m diagnosed as terminal, BOY! am I going to enjoy that time.


Till then, no fun eating.

I watched that game and it was a great one.

Unlike the Cincinnati Begals game, BOTH teams showed great discipline. Especially in the late Fourth Quarter.

The issue was settled when Alabama had an 11 point lead, but they couldn’t sit on it. Clemson was competitive.

Bottom line: Alabama’s onside kick worked and Clemson’s didn’t.

The difference? Alabama did it when it was not expected.

I thought the Alabama use of the Tight End was devastating. The game plan must have been thought up by a trickster. 

Great game by both teams. Shame someone had to lose. Made you see why they were #1 and #2.

TINFOILHAT: Did Hitler escape to Argentina?


Hola Hitler! Ex CIA agent claims Nazi leader faked his death and flew to Tenerife before escaping to Argentina on a U-Boat

  • Ex-CIA agent Bob Baer does not believe Hitler’s death story is conclusive
  • Baer, a spy for 21 years, said Hitler could have easily faked his death
  • Newly declassified FBI documents suggest he could have got to Tenerife
  • Other documents claim the Nazi leader made it to Argentina by submarine 

PUBLISHED: 11:59 EST, 8 January 2016 | UPDATED: 14:40 EST, 8 January 2016

*** begin quote ***

During the controversial documentary series, Baer claims: ‘The narrative the government gives us is a lie. if you look at the FBI files it throws open the investigation.

‘What we are doing is re-examining history, history that we thought was settled that Hitler died in the bunker but the deeper we get into it, it’s clear to me we don’t have any facts for it.’

One of the declassified documents expresses concern that Hitler’s body had not been recovered and the complete lack of evidence of his death.

The controversial theory claims that Hitler flew to the Canary Island and boarded a U-Boat which transported him to a Nazi-friendly area of Argentina.

“Why does it matter?” to quote a certain Presidential candidate.

LIBERTY: The NLRB unconstitutional defines what is sufficiently Catholic

9.  NLRB Exposing Catholic Identity Concerns

The number of Catholic colleges challenging the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continues to grow. The problems with this trend are twofold: One, the NLRB is exercising unconstitutional government oversight in attempting to determine whether or not a college is sufficiently Catholic; and two, the test applied to the colleges is exposing major Catholic identity concerns. Colleges opposing NLRB rulings now include Carroll College, Duquesne University, Manhattan College, Saint Xavier University, Seattle University and Loyola University Chicago.

In the Newman Society’s amicus brief opposing the NLRB harassment, attorneys for Alliance Defending Freedom stated:

Religious organizations have the right of autonomy over their internal governance, the right to be treated the same as all other religious groups and denominations by the government, and the right to be free from government meddling and intrusion in their operations and beliefs.

First, they come for the Catholic Schools?

Remember Gooferment Skrules are deliberately creating cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite.

They promote and propagandize the greatest of the State who solves all problems. Worship the Earth because there can’t be any God. It might limit the State which is the current God of Man.



But, how do we get “We, The Sheeple” to stop it?

imho, the thing will eventually collapse under its own weight. 

Look at how much it costs. Look at how the Teacher’s Union protects it and Big Gooferment. Look at the terrible results it produces.

The minute that the Black minority realizes how they have been screwed by the Gooferment Skrules, then things will change.

Here’s a reason NOT to use an ISP for your email address.

Another is that you’re locked into that ISP for email.


May I suggest that you have your own domain?

The common wisdom, or is that common whizdumb, is to own your own name as a domain name. I own “reinke.cc”. (I like saying “sea sea me at reinke.cc”! me@reinke.cc will actually work!) I gives one quite a bit of control.

And, it’s very cheap. I know three solutions at 15$/year using wordpressdotcom with gmail, 25$/year email only with 1and1, and 60$/year for domain+email+webspace also at 1and1.

My point is not that you should use 1and1. http://www.1and1.com/?k_id=9113251 I could care less which one you use. It’s that getting on to your own domain with email is cheap and easy.

And, it’s not hotmail, yahoo, AOL, or gmail. It IS your own “personal brand”.

*** begin quote ***

The ever-growing number of Americans who are joining the liberty movement are not interested in “reforming” the welfare-warfare state. They also have no interest in “fixing” the Federal Reserve via “rules-based” monetary policy. Instead, this movement is dedicated to auditing, then ending, the Fed and stopping the government from trying to run the economy, run the world, and run our lives. If this movement refuses to compromise its principles, we may succeed in restoring a society of liberty, peace, and prosperity in our lifetimes.

*** end quote ***

In addressing the “welfare” part of the welfare-warfare state, it’s unfortunate that those of us that want to “end welfare as we know it” are portrayed as heartless unfeeling Ebenezer Scrooges.

In actuality, nothing could be further than the truth.

If you look on the Gooferment’s failed “war on poverty”, then you will see whole GENERATIONS lost to the despair of “welfare”. Politicians and bureaucrats — mostly D’s — and “community organizers” have developed a “poverty industry” that they siphon off of. Argh!

We have more than SIX DECADES of the current system, with no end in sight of misery.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — attributed to Einstein

So WHY can’t we try something different?

* Eliminate the minimum wage by phasing it out over 20 years. That would do wonders for black youth unemployment.

* Eliminate the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” that sends so many poor people to prison, impoverishes them, and limits their employment opportunities. And BTW inflicts crime and violence on the poor disproportionately!

* Eliminate the handouts by phasing them out over 20 years. Reduce them 5% per year. 

* Eliminate the various and sundry “regulations” on the States concerning “welfare”.

* Eliminate the Crony Capitalism “regulations” of “licensing” various things like hair braiding, Uber driving, and all sorts of other stupidity.

* Eliminate the tremendous “take” off the poor by the various forms of Gooferment lotteries. 

Americans are very charitable. If the taxes are reduced by reducing the welfare burden, then true charity will spring up to help the truly needy with real help. I cite Homefront NJ as an example of what a real community can do. (And, from whom, I was taught that the “welfare bureaucracy” needs lots of “clients” to justify their continued existence.)


Why can’t we have an experiment to see if this wouldn’t work so much better?

Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats, as well as all those that make fine living off the current system.

Why do I get frustrated when people insist on being insecure?

To our eService Customers:
On December 21, 2015, Washington Gas launched its new eService portal in an effort to improve the overall online customer experience. We have expanded the online self-service options, provided you with energy consumption information and month-to-month usage comparisons, as well access to billing and payment options, such as our Budget Billing and Auto-Pay programs. 
Since the launch, we have experienced some technical issues, particularly related to log on and password reset. During log on, please be aware  that you may encounter delays as you are: 1) directed to the page where you are required to change your password; and 2) answer three brief security questions, both of which conform to sound security practices. We apologize for any delays you may experience during this process.
During the next few weeks, we will remain focused on identifying, addressing and resolving deficiencies in the new system. By the time you receive your next bill and log onto our system, we expect that your online experience on our new site will have improved significantly as we approach the level of service you expect and deserve.
Until we resolve all issues, please consider using your mobile device to access the eService site. Customers accessing the site in this way are experiencing faster site performance.
As a reminder, the following payment options are still available to you:

  • Call our automated payment line at 703-750-7944 to make a phone payment with a check or credit card. 
  • Contact our customer service center at 703-750-1000 for assistance with a payment. Customer service hours are 8 AM to 9 PM on weekdays and 8 AM to 4:30 PM on Saturday. The center is closed on Sundays.

There are no transaction fees for payments made through these two alternative methods. Late fees will be waived for eService customer payments delayed by the implementation of the new portal.
Thank you for your patience and for being a valued Washington Gas customer. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience these technical issues may cause. Our continued goal is to provide the best possible online experience and we will continue to provide updates and share information on the www.washgas.comhome page in the coming weeks.
