Pearl Harbor Day: One For Which FDR Shoulders ‘Infamy’

On December 7, 1941 the Empire of Japan bombed the U.S. Pacific Fleet which was stationed in Pearl Harbor on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. In addressing Congress the next day, President Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.”

But Roosevelt’s reputation should live in infamy too. The line that Roosevelt enthusiasts and left-wing historians have peddled for so many years is that the attack was a complete surprise.

Here’s a sample from The American Pageant, a typical left-wing American history textbook widely used in American high schools:

Officials in Washington, having “cracked” the top-secret code of the Japanese, knew that Tokyo’s decision was for war … Roosevelt, misled by Japanese ship movements in the Far East, evidently expected the blow to fall on British Malaya or on the Philippines. No one in high authority in Washington seems to have believed that the Japanese were either strong enough or foolhardy enough to strike Hawaii.

That’s the left’s version, and it’s in line with the rest of the “fake history” they want American high school students to learn. The Education and Research Institute (ERI — of which I am chairman) has written a critique of The American Pageant, which tells a more accurate story about Pearl Harbor and scores of other events in American history.

The American Pageant gives almost no blame to FDR for the Pearl Harbor disaster — even though the United States had broken the Japanese secret code and knew an attack was imminent. The textbook authors assure us that “no one in high authority in Washington seems to have believed that the Japanese” had the ability to launch such an attack.

But that is simply wrong. Some high-ranking members of the U.S. Navy did believe a surprise attack at Pearl Harbor was possible, but FDR disagreed with them and he removed those contrary voices from positions of power.

The commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor was Admiral J. O. (Joe) Richardson. Unlike Roosevelt, Richardson did not underestimate the Japanese — and he had studied them and the dangerous Pearl Harbor location thoroughly.

Richardson said that a simulated aerial attack that the U.S. had conducted at Pearl Harbor in 1932 proved that torpedo planes could cripple any fleet stationed there.

Even before Roosevelt ordered the Pacific Fleet to stay at Pearl Harbor indefinitely, Richardson had protested that keeping the fleet there posed a danger to every ship. He had been attempting to monitor the military movements of the Japanese to give the United States time to evacuate Pearl Harbor in case of danger

My Uncles always believed that FDR was responsible for Pearl Harbor.  And NOT in the sense of, “the buck stops here”!  They knew from the (real; not fake news) that military decisions were made at the White House. (One of them worked for decades in the Navy Department.)

FDR needed to end the Great Depression that was caused by the politicians and bureaucrats messing with the economy.  What better way to ensure prosperity than by a war that would never come to America.  

Argh!

“We, The Sheeple” don’t recognize the politicians and bureaucrats as “war criminals” and traitors to the civil society.

How many more people have to die before this “terrible genie” of Gooferment is put back in Pandora’s box?

Time for another revolution?

The Atomic Bombings Reconsidered

Friday, November 1, 2019

That redefinition of morality was a product of World War II, which included such barbarities as Germany’s systematic murder of six million Jews and Japan’s rape of Nanking. While the worst atrocities were perpetrated by the Axis, all the major nation-states sliced away at the moral code — often to the applause of their leaders and citizens alike. By 1945 there were few moral restraints left in what had become virtually a total war. Even F.D.R.’s prewar concern for sparing enemy civilians had fallen by the wayside. In that new moral climate, any nation that had the A-bomb would probably have used it against enemy peoples. British leaders as well as Joseph Stalin endorsed the act. Germany’s and Japan’s leaders surely would have used it against cities. America was not morally unique — just technologically exceptional. Only it had the bomb, and so only it used it.

November 1, 1945 was schedule for the invasion of Japan.

Who knows how many on both side would have died?

WW2’s “tactics” really ended the protection of non-combatant civilians.

So why should we be surprised that “terrorism” has emerged as the tool of Fifth Generation asymmetrical warfare?

GOVERNACIDE: A Mysterious Infection — and secrecy will kill us

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Deadly germs, Lost cures: A Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of Secrecy

*** begin quote *** 

Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ as deadly as it was mysterious. Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit.

The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe. Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain, forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa.

Recently C. auris reached New York, New Jersey and Illinois, leading the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to add it to a list of germs deemed “urgent threats.”

The man at Mount Sinai died after 90 days in the hospital, but C. auris did not. Tests showed it was everywhere in his room, so invasive that the hospital needed special cleaning equipment and had to rip out some of the ceiling and floor tiles to eradicate it.

*** and ***

Antibiotics and antifungals are both essential to combat infections in people, but antibiotics are also used widely to prevent disease in farm animals, and antifungals are also applied to prevent agricultural plants from rotting. Some scientists cite evidence that rampant use of fungicides on crops is contributing to the surge in drug-resistant fungi infecting humans.

Yet as the problem grows, it is little understood by the public — in part because the very existence of resistant infections is often cloaked in secrecy.

With bacteria and fungi alike, hospitals and local governments are reluctant to disclose outbreaks for fear of being seen as infection hubs. Even the C.D.C., under its agreement with states, is not allowed to make public the location or name of hospitals involved in outbreaks. State governments have in many cases declined to publicly share information beyond acknowledging that they have had cases.

All the while, the germs are easily spread — carried on hands and equipment inside hospitals; ferried on meat and manure-fertilized vegetables from farms; transported across borders by travelers and on exports and imports; and transferred by patients from nursing home to hospital and back.

C. auris, which infected the man at Mount Sinai, is one of dozens of dangerous bacteria and fungi that have developed resistance. Yet, like most of them, it is a threat that is virtually unknown to the public.

Other prominent strains of the fungus Candida — one of the most common causes of bloodstream infections in hospitals — have not developed significant resistance to drugs, but more than 90 percent of C. auris infections are resistant to at least one drug, and 30 percent are resistant to two or more drugs, the C.D.C. said.

Dr. Lynn Sosa, Connecticut’s deputy state epidemiologist, said she now saw C. auris as “the top” threat among resistant infections. “It’s pretty much unbeatable and difficult to identity,” she said.

*** and ***

One author of the article in Mycoses, a doctor at the hospital, said in an email that the hospital did not want him to speak to journalists because it “is concerned about the public image of the hospital.”

The secrecy infuriates patient advocates, who say people have a right to know if there is an outbreak so they can decide whether to go to a hospital, particularly when dealing with a nonurgent matter, like elective surgery.

“Why the heck are we reading about an outbreak almost a year and a half later — and not have it front-page news the day after it happens?” said Dr. Kevin Kavanagh, a physician in Kentucky and board chairman of Health Watch USA, a nonprofit patient advocacy group. “You wouldn’t tolerate this at a restaurant with a food poisoning outbreak.”

*** end quote ***

The old Irish friends and relatives used to believe that going to the hospital was a death sentence.  Maybe they weren’t completely wrong.  I used to think it was superstition; “sick people go to the hospital; sick people die; it’s the people; not the hospital”.  Now I’m not so sure. 

Again, like in the vaccine controversy, where the side effects are hidden and Big Pharma is insulated from lawsuits, the secrecy gives rise to “common sense”.  If the experts will not tell us the truth, human beings will figure it out.  

Like AIDS in the gay community, sometimes plain old ordinary dumb humans have to piece together the jigsaw puzzle.  

With vaccines, I have personally seen the ravages of polio on a strong healthy child in my cousin William.  When the polio vaccine was announced, my family lined up all their children for it.  They also convinced the neighborhood.  Skeptics were brought to visit William and they became converts.

That being said, the secrecy of the Gooferment aka CDC and FDA, along with the horror stories about autism skyrocketing, I understand parents’ reluctance to make their children “lab rats”.  Maybe, if they could trust the “medical establishment”, then the fear would be palpable.

What do we have to do to correct this situation?

  • Politicians and bureaucrats must be dragged to the discussion.  Kicking and screaming if need be.  Transparency is the order of the day.  Facts cure ignorance and fear.  Let’s admit that there is a problem.  This is America, home of the brave.  Let’s face our fears with bravery and courage. To do that we need leaders to stand up and tell the “hard facts of life”.  The world is a dangerous place; ignoring the facts makes it even more so.
  • Big Pharma has to give up the “vaccine secrecy” and the financial protection of the indemnification laws.
  • The “Medical Establishment” (i.e., doctors, hospitals, their lawyers) have to worry less about “their image” and more about effective solutions.
  • “We, The Sheeple” need to get with the program.  Don’t get your medical diagnosis from “Doctor Google” or the latest “celebrity” with a miracle cure.  Do be an informed active participant in your own medical care.  (It enrages me when I go to medical appointment and the staff is surprised when I know and have documented everything I take and why as well as all my own medical records. At the very least, people can put the prescription bottles in a zip lock and bring it with them.)

Seem simple enough to me.

Argh!

GOVERNACIDE: Why are less than 1 percent of adverse vaccine reactions are reported to VAERS

Manufactured Crisis — HPV, Hype and Horror
By Joseph Mercola — Mercola.com
December 10, 2018

*** begin quote ***

The HPV vaccine Gardasil was granted European license in February 2006,1 followed by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval that same year in June.2 Gardasil was controversial in the U.S. from the beginning, with vaccine safety activists questioning the quality of the clinical trials used to fast track the vaccine to licensure.3 Merck, which manufactures and distributes the HPV vaccine Gardasil, has worked with a global health group called PATH4 to get the vaccine approved worldwide.

Lauded as a silver bullet against cervical cancer, the vaccine has since wrought havoc on the lives of young girls across the world.

“Manufactured Crisis — HPV, Hype and Horror,” a film by The Alliance for Natural Health, delves into the all too often ignored dark side of this unnecessary vaccine, interviewing families whose lives have been forever altered after their young daughters suffered life-threatening or lethal side effects following Gardasil vaccination. Says Barbara Loe Fisher, president and cofounder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

“The tragic story of Gardasil vaccine is one that is playing out in real time in the homes of trusting parents, who thought they were doing the right thing to try to make their daughters ‘one less,’ and in the 21st century cyberspace forum of public opinion as well as on television.”

*** and ***

Considering the U.S. government’s financial interest in the sale of HPV vaccine, this is about as clear a conflict of interest as you can get, yet Markowitz was allowed to be part of the team that designed the scope and parameters of the review.

Risk Benefit Analysis

In the film, Norma Erickson, president of Sanevax, Inc., an “international HPV vaccine information clearinghouse” in Troy, Montana, points out that while the cervical cancer rate in the U.S. is 12 per 100,000, by Merck’s own admission, Gardasil may cause 2,300 serious adverse events per 100,000. 

Is it really reasonable to risk 2,300 serious adverse events — which includes sudden death — in the hopes of preventing 12 cases of cervical cancer out of 100,000?

Trial data from Merck also shows that Gardasil vaccinations may actually increase your risk of cervical cancer by 44.6 percent if you have been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior to vaccination.20 (The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has made this document inaccessible, but we’ve saved a copy of it for posterity.)

Professor Marcos Mazzuka, a pediatrician specializing in vaccine injuries in Madrid, Spain, agrees that the HPV vaccine is not safe, and is not worth the risk, as side effects are not limited to rash or fever but are severe and long-lasting.

I don’t  believe that I am an anti-vaxxer.

I don’t like the Gooferment because it’s bought and paid for by special interests.  Its politicians and bureaucrats are not “our friends”, “our protectors”, or anything but knaves and fools.  The sooner “We, The Sheeple” recognize this the better.

I would like to see:

  • The FDA made an advisory agency
  • Vaccines immunity from legal liability repealed
  • Mandatory reporting

Time to put the Gooferment in its place.

GOVERNACIDE: California’s Forest Fire Tragedy | Hoover Institution

Thursday, November 29, 2018

Every bit as important is the major change in the philosophy of land use management. Much of the forest land in California is now owned by the state and federal government.  These lands have proved far more vulnerable to forest fires than properties owned by private groups.  Private lands are managed with the goals of conservation and production.  The management of public lands has been buffeted by legislative schemes driven by strong ideological commitments. Writing last year, Republican Congressman Tom McClintock noted that his air inspections revealed a distressing pattern: “The [privately] managed forests are green, healthy and thriving. The neglected federal forests are densely overcrowded and often scarred by fire because we can’t even salvage the fire-killed timber while it still has value.”

Private management of forest was / is far better than “public (Gooferment) (mis)management”.

Sadly, this is one of the rare instances where the “death penalty” makes sense.  Some criminal humans are too dangerous to their custodians and must be put down for everyone’s safety.  We, as a society, must do better job at protecting ourselves and our employees.

Shocking video shows the moment an intoxicated driver speeds down a freeway on the wrong side of the road and crashes head on into a young mother, killing her.  

Guillermo Suarez, 31, was seen driving east along the west-bound side of the I-20 Freeway in Duncanville Texas on Saturday when he set off a fatal multi-car crash.

His actions took the life of Amberly McCrae, 23, who left behind her nine-month-old son Jace.

I’ve ranted on this before. As a fat old white guy injineer, why aren’t the ramps “trapped” to get the wrong way drivers?

If parking lots can afford to do it, then why not the Gooferment roads?

What no one’s relative sells them?
