Bigfoot News February 27, 2013

Erickson Project footage reportedly released. Some stills of Matilda the teenage Bigfoot have reportedly been leaked to the web via Bill Munns. Someone who had an NDA with Erickson leaked some of the stills to Munns, who promptly declared them to based on a modified Wookie mask.

The clips are on the left and the Wookie costume is on the right. Compare and contrast.

Click to enlarge. The clips are on the left and the Wookie costume is on the right. Compare and contrast.

The skeptic and scofftic community is going nuts over this. However, there are some problems.

First of all, Erickson bought looked at 4-5 videos that the owners of the house had. The first one was thought to be faked. The Erickson people thought it was a fake. They sent this video around to a bunch of experts and the consensus was that this was some sort of a fake. Munns was one of those experts. Munns said it was a modified Wookie mask. Erickson decided not to buy that video. However, he did buy the other four videos which were all thought to be genuine.

So the question is whether Munns is referring to stills from the video that even Erickson thought was fake or whether he is referring to the famous Matilda footage which is said to be better than the Patterson footage. No one knows, and no one knows if Munns reviewed the footage that actually made it into the Erickson Project movie.

So Munns’ trashing of those photos does not in any way invalidate Erickson’s project, footage or documentary.

John Bindernagel saw a Bigfoot at the Erickson Project’s Crittenden, Kentucky site. Adrian Erickson flew Bindernagel out to the Kentucky site when Dennis Pfohl and Dr. Leila Hadj-Chikh were there so that Bindernagel could get a chance to see a Bigfoot for the first time as he had never seen one before. Richard Stubstad told me that Bindernagel did indeed see a Bigfoot at the site, and the sighting changed his mind about whether Bigfoots were apes or hominids. Prior to the Kentucky sighting, Bindernagel said that Bigfoots were apes. However, after he saw the Bigfoot at Crittenden, Stubstad said he changed his mind and now thought they were more of a hominid.

However, we never knew exactly what Bindernagel saw. But just the other day a commenter on Cryptomundo said he talked to Bindernagel recently at a Bigfoot conference, and John said he what he saw in Kentucky was either a Bigfoot or someone running around in a Bigfoot costume.

I asked Stubstad if it were possible that the owners of the site might have been running around in Bigfoot costumes to hoax the Erickson Project. Then I asked him if it was possible that Pfohl and Hadj-Chikh were hoaxing Erickson by running around in Bigfoot costumes. His response to both of these was the same: “That’s not possible.”

The Crittenden property was private land, and it was well fenced. It was not a common occurrence to have trespassers on the land, if they came at all. So we can assume no trespassers on the land hoaxing everyone by running around in Bigfoot costumes. We can also be certain that neither the owners nor Pfohl and Hadj-Chikh were running around in Bigfoot costumes hoaxing people. We also know that Adrian himself was not hoaxing.

The only possible conclusion then is that Bindernagel saw a Bigfoot at Crittenden.

Facebook/Find Bigfoot is in Las Vegas. No one knows what they are doing there, where they are said to be meeting with Rick Dyer. In fact, I just received word that they did in fact view Dyer’s Bigfoot body, and also they did not sign an NDA with Dyer. Nevertheless, they do not appear to be talking as of yet about what they have seen.

New video out investigating the Dyer Bigfoot shooting in San Antonio. The shooting on September 6, 2012 is still the subject of much investigation. A man has been running around there investigating the shooting mostly by interviewing homeless people who live in the area. This is the second video in the series.

In this video, the young homeless man says that someone or something killed his dog right around the time that Dyer’s crew were in the area. The young man blames Dyer for slashing his dog’s throat (the injury was not fatal). The young man says that if Dyer attacked his dog, the man is going to kill Dyer. So he’s threatening Dyer. No one knows if Dyer attacked that dog or not. It seems like a pretty crazy thing to do, even for Dyer. On the other hand, Bigfoots can easily slit the throat of a dog. Why was the young man’s dog’s throat slit around the time when Dyer shot the Bigfoot? No one knows; it’s one more mystery.

In addition, the man says that he has never seen any Bigfoots in the area, and he doesn’t think that they live there. Mountain lions? Yes. Bigfoots? No.

It is very interesting that the man reiterates once again that he heard gunshots in the area when Dyer was there with the film crew. This time he elaborates that he heard more than one gunshot (Dyer says he fired two shots) and that the shots occurred at night (Dyer says the Bigfoot was shot at 2:30 AM). This is excellent confirmation of Dyer’s story.

However, in this video, a Mexican-American family living in the area are interviewed, and the father says say that there are Bigfoots (Meaning more than one!) still in the area. The father also said that Dyer and the film crew were in the area in early September, and that the father met them. In addition, the father also said his neighbor told him one night at a party that the neighbor had seen a Bigfoot in the area dumpster diving and looking for something to eat. After it spotted the neighbor, the Bigfoot took off in the direction of a water tower that is in the area. A member of the man’s family said that they had seen huge footprints in the area.

Accusation that the San Antonio Film Commission did not grant any licenses to shoot film during early September. Sleuths on Bigfoot Forums called the film commission and learned this odd fact. Skeptics are using this to say that there never was any film crew in the area with Dyer during this period.

Nevertheless, as you can see in the video above, the young man says that Dyer was indeed out here with a film crew during that period. The man says he met the crew and talked to them, and that they had British accents! So it appears that whether or not Minnow had a permit or not, they were indeed at that site during that period shooting film with Dyer.

Dyer footage reportedly cut from Minnow Films Shooting Bigfoot movie. A poster on Bigfoot Forums, “Ihlyda,” who insists that the Dyer story is a hoax says he has a source at Minnow who says that the Dyer footage has been cut from the film. However, he appears to be lying, and I do not think that he has a source at Minnow. My source at Minnow just told me that his story is not true and Dyer’s footage is still in the film.

Derek Randles has not yet seen the Dyer body. Everyone is waiting for Randles to go look at that body, but apparently Derek has not gone to see the body yet. It’s not known what Randles will be able to tell us after he sees it as he may be under NDA.

Another huge Bigfooter will see Dyer’s body. Another huge Bigfooter will come to see the body around the same time that Randles does. Whether they accompany Randles or not, I do not know. No one knows who this person is, though there is much speculation.

Dyer’s truck vandalized for the 3rd time in a month. Rick Dyer’s truck had its rear window smashed recently. This was the 3rd vandalism in a month. The person who did it supposedly did it because they say Dyer is a hoaxer. The vandalism was accompanied by some sort of message calling Dyer a hoaxer. Apparently this is someone who thinks Dyer is hoaxing again based on the body story. It is unfortunate that Rick is suffering this way and I do not support these attacks on Dyer in any way whatsoever. My heart goes out to him. I feel sorry for the damage he is suffering unjustly and I hope the vandal is caught.

There is a silver lining to all of this  mess. I think it is great that people are attacking the property of hoaxers, even though in this case, they are mistaken. Wouldn’t it be a great world when every Bigfoot hoaxer had to suffer endless threats to life, limb and property along with at the very least property damage. Actually I would not mind seeing some of them get beat up too. The Bigfoot community needs to put sheer terror into the hearts of these hoaxers. People wanting to hoax need to think twice. I want people to think, “Oh no, I better not do this Bigfoot hoax. If I do, I will get endless threats and possible attacks on me or my property.” Maybe that will stop a few of them.

Scientists review Ketchum Bigfoot DNA study. Here, from the execrable Sharon Hill’s Doubtful News scofftic site, is a report on geneticists who have reviewed the data. Apparently Bigfoot nuclear DNA is extremely bizarre, so weird that these scientists insist it could not even be from a real creature. Therefore, they say that there must have been some contamination. However, upon reading the study, I concluded that there was no contamination whatsoever. Therefore, my conclusion is simply that Bigfoot DNA is extremely strange. Why not? Bigfoots themselves are weird as all get out, so why wouldn’t their DNA be very odd also?

The sequence did not match a hominin sequence but part of it did match very well with human chromosome 11. 60% didn’t match with anything on Earth (So called “Angel DNA“? Sorry, I went there…) and the rest of it matched with various animals such as panda, dog and bear, etc. These bits that matched may be a sign of a mixed sample.

So, as Winter notes, he’s not sure if the researchers are inept or deliberate in their interpretation but some of the DNA is perfectly matched to humans and the rest is “crap”. Some of the sequences, he said, were far too short to be the result of hybridization, making Ketchum’s claim of hybridization from 15,000 years ago not plausible. Others have also questioned the hybridization idea.

Contamination remains the obvious question. It’s not that the samples were contaminated necessarily by the collector but that the sample itself was a mix. So, no matter how careful they were in the lab to prevent investigator contamination (as Ketchum insists), the damage was already done if it was junk to begin with.

Conclusion? Bad.

As I noted above, there is no contamination. I went over that in my last report, and you can go check Scott Carpenter’s site for more on that. Ok, Bigfoot DNA is crazy. So what? That means they don’t exist? No. It means they exist, but they have nutty DNA.

Ketchum hoaxing? On JREF and other forums, many folks, including many Bigfooters, are saying that Ketchum is hoaxing this whole thing. Many of these saying this are scofftics to skeptics, and they say she is hoaxing it because there is no such thing as Bigfoots. So the samples were all of known animals or humans, and Ketchum messed with the DNA to make it look funny so she could call it Bigfoot DNA.

Thing is, if she did that, she is guilty of scientific fraud. She could never publish in the US again. Her career would be over. She could be sued civilly for fraud and prosecuted criminally for fraud by any enterprising DA. I agree with Richard Stubstad that, while Ketchum is a pretty shady person, I do think that hoaxing and scientific fraud is simply beyond here. I would even go so far as to say that she doesn’t have it in her to do that.

Ketchum’s telling Justin Smeja to damage his sample with bleach. That was Justin’s explosive claim on the video of his that I linked to in my last report. The JREF idiots are running with this and claiming that Ketchum damaged all of her samples with bleach and that is how she got the weird Bigfoot DNA results she came up with. In other words, a hoax and scientific fraud. I do not understand genetics very well, but i believe that destroying the sample with bleach would simply render it sufficiently damaged so that no usable DNA could be recovered from it.

Justin’s other claims. In the video, Justin also makes other claims. He said that Ketchum said she had a way of making the DNA of something seem like something it is not. This is suggestive of scientific fraud on her part if she did indeed say that.

However, I doubt if she said that. She did say that if other labs tested it, they would probably get a common animal. In Justin’s case, she said other labs would come up with “bear.” That is exactly what two other labs did come up with. This is a very odd statement on her part, and I do not understand it. Why did she know that other labs would come up with “bear?” Makes no sense. And how was it that she would come up with something different from bear? I admit that I am mystified here, but I still believe that she is not hoaxing. I simply do not believe she has it in her to do that.

Justin also said that Ketchum made the claim about the Bigfoot mind-rape that happened to her on her property where Bigfoots reportedly hang out. I have gone over this claim before on my blog. I think something very odd happened to her that night, that Bigfoots have ESP, and that they can mess with your mind in some interesting ways.

Justin said that Ketchum claimed to have 5 Bigfoots on he property. Justin thought this was nuts, but I think it is possible that she may indeed have a family of Bigfoots running around her property.

In addition, Justin said that Ketchum said she would hold Justin’s Bigfoot sample, and the Bigfoots would mind-speak to her somehow when she held it. That is, she would have some sort of a spiritual experience. Ketchum is a very spiritual experience. I do not know if the Bigfoots mindspeak to her when she holds the Sierra steak, but anything is possible. Actually, habituators regularly report very similar odd experiences. I conclude that Bigfoots have “something else” that may be a spiritual or ESP side to them.

Justin concluded from all of this that the woman is simply a nut. I am not sure if that is true. She is shady, but is she nuts? Crazy like a fox maybe. Otherwise, I doubt it. She is sort of Cluster B-ish, but so is just about everyone in Bigfootery!

Four superb breakdowns by Michael Merchant. Four new fantastic breakdowns by Merchant follow below. He is becoming my favorite guy for doing breakdowns.

Michael Merchant breaks down the Top 5 Bigfoot photos of the year.

Very nice.

#5 photo is a very odd photo of something taken from the rear. It’s from Ontario, Canada, taken by a trapper. It is a very weird photo, and no one knows quite what it is. A friend of mine insists that it is a Bigfoot. I told him, “But it looks so weird!” He replied, “Well, Sasquatches are pretty weird creatures, so photos of them look pretty strange.” Makes sense to me.

#4 photo is the Temamgami Ontario Canada Bigfoot photos. These photos are very strange, but I think that both of them are real Bigfoot photos. They have been extensively investigated by researchers, including the fine Ontario Wildlife Field Research group.

#3 is the fantastic Adam Davies Sleeping Bag Sasquatch video from Washington State. I also regard this as a real Bigfoot. Davies is a superb researcher.

#2 is a very weird trail cam photo of something bipedal running on all fours. It looks like some kind of an elongated ape. I do not have the faintest idea what that thing is.

#1 is the excellent Melissa Hovey Bigfoot photo. One of the finest Bigfoot photos ever taken. Melissa did a great job handling the roll-out on this photo. For sure that is a real Bigfoot.

Another incredible breakdown by Michael Merchant!

Merchant breakdown of Utah Bigfoot.

This one fooled me for sure. Apparently a few months after they released this video, these maggots told us that it was all a hoax. Hmm. Punks. Bitches. I always wondered about that Bigfoot shelter they find at the end of the video. It looked too good for a Bigfoot to have built it. It looked like it was build by humans. Turns out it was!

Merchant breaks down tree falling in the forest video.

Here a tree falls in the forest. A guy films it, and he says that a Bigfoot pushed it over. He also claims that there are 3 Bigfoots in this video. They look more like shadows to me. I am not sure there are any Bigfoots in this video and trees fall in the forest all the time. The man has a dog with him, and the dog does not act too alarmed. It’s dubious whether there are any proven Bigfoots in this video.

Merchant paralyzed Adirondacks Bigfoot breakdown video.

Fine breakdown by Merchant of this extraordinarily bizarre video out of New York. No one yet knows what is in this video. A commenter said it a common costume, but I went to the site and looked at the costume and this did not look like it. How many hoaxers go down on all fours. How many make juvenile Bigfoots have gigantic heads? How many get the Bigfoot’s ears exactly right?

Bankster Scum Declare War on Argentina

It appears that vulture capital funds are suing the government of Argentina for the money Argentina owes to criminal international banksters. The banksters even tried to seize an Argentine ship in Ghana as payment on the debt Argentina owes. Argentina defaulted on her debt in 2001! That was a great move that all developing countries should consider doing. Tell the banksters to stick it! Refuse to pay them back, and leave the banksters holding the bag!

Argentina defaulted on her debt, which pretty much means that she is simply refusing to pay it off. As such, I feel that she is simply telling the banksters to stick it and as such, Argentina doesn’t owe these bankster vermin one nickel.

All humanity must rise up against these bankster rats.

Everyone against the international bankers!

Put the bankers’ heads on pikes!

Villagers with torches!

From the Jubilee USA group:

This Wednesday, two holdout vulture funds, including Paul Singer’s NML Capital, are in a New York Federal court verses Argentina. Because this proceeding will have vast international repercussions, the Financial Times has dubbed the hearing “‘the trial of the century’ in sovereign debt restructuring.” The US Government filed a friend-of-the-court brief noting a ruling against Argentina could make it much harder for countries in financial recovery or countries facing economic stresses to access credit and debt swaps.

The faith community and other groups, organized by Jubilee USA, will vigil out of concern for poor people affected by vulture funds during the proceeding outside the Federal 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday, February 27th starting at 1:00 PM in New York City. Vigils will also take place in London and Buenos Aires.

If these hedge funds win – it will mean they will more aggressively target poor countries in fragile financial recovery. IF WE WIN, it will mean that it will be harder for vulture funds to target the monies that develop social infrastructure in many poor countries. No matter what, it seems that this case is likely to go all the way to the Supreme Court.

Vulture funds buy the debt of poor countries or countries in financial recovery for pennies on the dollar and then sue to make as much as a 400% profit off the backs of the poor. Jubilee USA Network introduced true bipartisan legislation in previous Congresses to stop vulture funds from exploiting poor countries. The International Monetary Fund and World Bank believe this kind of behavior threatens financial recovery in fragile economies.

In 2001, when Argentina defaulted on roughly $81 billion, NML Capital purchased some of Argentina’s debt on a secondary market. When Argentina defaulted, they restructured with some of their creditors in 2005 and 2010 but holdout creditors, led by NML Capital, rejected the proposal and sued Argentina for the full amount in NY courts – thus, naming NML Capital a holdout vulture fund. Vulture funds hurt both legitimate investors and poor people. That’s why the US government got involved in this case and that’s why the IMF and World Bank are against vulture funds.

In June, these same vulture funds supported legislation in the New York State Senate and Assembly which would have allowed the funds to continue to litigate even after post-court judgment. Jubilee USA Network came out against the legislation by mobilizing 4,000 supporters in NY to write, e-mail and call their State Assembly and Senate Members. With American Jewish World Service, Jubilee USA put enough pressure on the New York legislative bodies to stop the legislation from coming to a vote.

This is a Shitty Website

Repost from the old site.

The Poop Report.

One of the all-time great websites about you know what. Shit, poop, crap, call it what you will – if you have a question about Number 2, there is probably an answer here somewhere.

One of my favorite threads is “anal leakage”. Of all the problems that could afflict a poor soul.

They sell books, they sell t-shirts, they sell everything. They even have a newsletter. Check out the names of the most active users.

Other than the obvious scatological humor, the forums are filled with folks with all sorts of anxieties about their shit. I asked a nurse friend of mine once if I were abnormal with my shit worries. She said, “Everyone is obsessed with their shit.”

And maybe it’s not a bad idea, hey. From hemorrhoids to polyps to diverticulosis to constipation to diarrhea to IBS, all sorts of stuff can and does go wrong down there. Be lucky if you are still going on schedule and without problems.

We shouldn’t be afraid of scatological discussion. Most folks think it is off-topic forever, but really, it’s something most of us do just about every day. It’s not a disgusting, horrible, awful, unmentionable thing we do regularly; it’s a very important part of our lives.

Shit isn’t as harmful as you think, your own, that is. You can probably even ingest tiny or microscopic amounts of your own shit, and most of us probably do from time to time. Most people probably don’t believe this, but it’s probably impossible to catch any disease this way. That is because any disease that is in your shit is already in your body (in your intestines that is) and thus you cannot catch a disease that you already have.

Once again, if you eat your own shit in large enough amounts, you might vomit because it’s so disgusting, but I don’t think you could catch any disease.

The big problem with shit is not your own shit but other peoples’ shit. One public health specialist was asked what was the greatest public health achievement of modern times was, and he said, “Getting the shit out of the water.” And so it was, the sewage was cleansed from the well, and lo and behold, the people got so much better when they weren’t drinking that shitty tasting water anymore.

That’s why we wash our hands after we shit. And do it well, hopefully, as I am a maniac about it, having OCD and all never hurts. They fear our shit and we fear their shit, so it’s like opposing shit armies, except truces are made when the armies camp together on the battlefield for about six months, after which they decide to give up this shitty war and go back to the base and listen for the sirens again.

That’s what other people’s shit is all about: it’s dangerous. Hell with your own shit, that’s for others to worry about, not you! Who fears their own shit? No educated man does, that’s who. In lots of countries they never got around to getting the shit out of the water, and so they are grotesquely unhealthy, like the Afghans these days living to be 38 or so, drinking that shitty war and dodging exploding humans and all that.

So be on the lookout for other people’s shit. It’s all about, and it’s dangerous and it’s our problem, not even theirs. Everybody is immune to their own shit, but everybody’s shit is potentially at war with everyone else’s shit. It’s a Shit War to the finish dammit. A war of all shit against all shit.

So shit is like a toxic waste rocket you can shoot at your opposing humans, or any humans that might get in your way, since your army of shit doesn’t care who it attacks or when or who. They’re always ready to fight, kind of like Iraqis.

Lots of diseases you can catch from other people’s shit, like Hepatitis A, parasites, cholera, salmonella, shigella and ameobiasis, crytosporidium and other fine foods. Gay men get a lot of these, because they are always eating shit, so to speak. I figure gay men have been eating it in society for long enough, so they don’t have to eat shit anymore, but I guess they are masochist leatherboys.

The reason you get sick when you go to Mexico and drink the water or suck on a lime is because you start drinking too much other people’s shit. Mexicans don’t mind for the most part, as Mexican shit doesn’t bother most Mexicans. It’s not really a taco de chivo con todo, but hey, it’s edible and unavoidable, and and if you have to eat a turd or even drink a turd tea, you may as well enjoy the experience.

And get a life lesson as it is, since most of us are going to be eating shit for the rest of our lives in one way or another for the rest of our lives. So we may as well lie back and enjoy it and try to engage damage control, so we don’t have to eat too much shit, and we can sort of enjoy life more or less, or at least fake it good enough to pass.

The shit, the shit, nothing but the shit. Apocalypse Now, Poop Later. 2001, A Shit Odyssey. Full Metal Shitjacket. Life’s a turd, and then you flush. 51% nice girl, 49% turd, so don’t flush me. Shit now or forever hold your sphincter. Shit, fart or get out of the bathroom.

Ok, I’m done. I’m scatologicalized out for the time being. That’s all the shitty jokes for one day, and anyway, the day itself was kind of a shitty joke itself in more ways than one, like lots of days, or maybe even every day if you are not stoned or drunk enough to notice?

There’s shitty jokes everywhere. Every time you turn around you hear another one. Life is kind of one big shitty joke after another, but at least half the jokes are lame enough so you can laugh about them for being so stupid.

The stupid, shitty jokes of life. Since I was really depressed, I made a shitty poem out of it.

The shitty years.
The long and oh so shitty years.
The sadness of the shitty years.

Now actually that was kind of beautiful, and it was then that I realized that I was a poet and I didn’t even know it but I hadn’t yet blown it, since there were always those Poetry Review contests, which anyone can win since they are sized down to the crowd at your local supermarket.

My poems would be great if I was a poet, but since they are so much better than everyone else’s, everyone would probably hate them, or else two or three women who are weird literary groupies about as screwed up as the poet nuts they love, might fall in love with me as “the greatest writer that ever lived.”

Which I agree with in principle, as most accomplished scribes are, since that is the only reason we even write anyway, we all think we are the greatest writers that ever lived, otherwise why waste time scribbling?

I had a university lit professor once who thought I was the next Thomas Pynchon. He’d hardly ever seen anything like this, this fiction I was writing. I kept on writing the novel, and got to about page 213, but it was turning into this totally insane and sick William Burroughs type novel, and it just got uglier and uglier with the following year or two, kind our like our mugs over time.

There are a few scribblings of fiction here and there, and I have brilliant friends who read and say, “Wow, this is like James Joyce or William Shakespeare,” but of course they are clearly deluded, and I think it pretty much sucks probably. Or else it’s the greatest thing ever written, almost kinda maybe sort of a little bit.

Since women do love writers, after all, even though most writers are pretty crazy.

Smart women can love writers, but not so women not so smart. They hear the guy’s a writer and start laughing. Anyway, most of them read menus and checkbooks and birthday cards, but otherwise they regard books like you do a kid’s object in the middle of the floor.

Definitely one of the web’s greatest websites if you’ve got copro-obsessive qualities, as most of us do. The Poop Report FTW!

Red Revolution For Bangladesh

Repost from the old site.

Bangladesh seriously needs revolution. Thank God the Maoists have taken up arms there to overthrow the system. They have not done too well, they are completely insane, and the Islamists have united against them, but we must wish them well. After all, only the Maoists are fighting to get rid of the system, the system that kills so many.
Reasons.

Electricity is scarce and most do not have access to clean water. Roads are in terrible shape and agriculture is lagging far behind where it ought to be.

In other words, it is a total capitalist South Asian clusterfuck. Get rid of it.

Even more reasons.

⅓ of rural Bangladeshis are landless (for contrast, 50% of Central American rural people are landless). All land reforms since independence have failed.

Truth is, if you are landless in Bangladesh, I would wager that you are probably starving. The land question is clearly the heart of the matter here. If someone disagrees that giving these folks land will keep them from starving, please speak up in the comments.

That Long Newspaper Spoon

Repost from the old site.

Let’s see what’s on the end of that long newspaper spoon… William Burroughs, “Naked Lunch” (1959).

This book really ought to be mandatory reading for all second graders, by the way.

On the end of that long newspaper spoon? A mean gruel and lies, cons and mind-heists.

Let us look at a few recent topics: How I Helped Moved a Factory To Mexico, from Business Week, actually a pretty good business publication. This article goes to show you the sheer insanity of the US government. Sure, global forces often more or less mandate taking plants out of the country.

The factory in the US closes, and $18/hour workers lose their jobs. The jobs go to Mexico, where the same work pays $3/hour, including benefits. Since $3/hour is not nearly as good as $18/hour, the flood from Mexico to the US continues.

Almost no one in Mexico is starving. As an illegal alien farm worker from Oaxaca told me over drinks at the bar about Oaxaca, “Comida, si. Dinero, no.” In Oaxaca, there is plenty of food, but no money. So everyone heads up here. Why, cuz they are starving? No, so they can buy 27 inch color TV sets.

US workers lose when US jobs are shipped overseas, then lose once again with the mad, lunatic illegal alien invasion that is ruining US working class jobs all over our nation. We have been shipping jobs to Mexico wildly since NAFTA in 1994.

One would think that this flood of jobs to Mexico would have resulted in a dramatic reduction in illegal immigration, but in fact, 1994 approximately coincides with a total explosion in the illegal immigrant tsunami to the US.

After NAFTA, workers and consumers in the US, Mexico and Canada all lost ground. Got that? Workers in Mexico, the US and Canada all got screwed by NAFTA. Some say they never made it up since either. Only business cleaned up, and only some businesses at that.

All free trade agreements between disparate nations, that I can tell, are going to have the exact same effects as NAFTA. Probably all free trade agreements that the US has negotiated since NAFTA have had similar effects, probably on a smaller scale.

Workers, consumers and public all get screwed. The environment takes a massive hit. Crappy Mexican trucks flood our highways and destroy them. All free trade agreements are always sold with the same load of crap that NAFTA was, as benefiting workers, consumers, the public, and hell, even the environment, why not?

Nearly the entire US media, from top to bottom, is in on this lie, and if you only read the MSM, you will never figure out the con. Workers, consumers, the public, the environment, and lots of small businesses get screwed by NAFTA-bullshit, and on top of that, we get an avalanche of illegal aliens.

Wow, what a deal! Hail NAFTA! Hail free trade!

File under lies, lies, and more lies: As reasonable folks may have guessed, Business Week (once again, heads up to a good capitalist magazine) columnist Ed Wallace informs us that there is no gas shortage. No gas shortage, no oil shortage, no nothing like that.

Has the media ever told us that? No. Have the politicians ever told us that? No. What do the media and pols tell us? That there is a gas and oil shortage! Why is there a gas and oil shortage? Oh, so many things! Especially, rising demand in China and India! Oh, but what a load of crap that is!

We are also told that we are somewhere near Peak Oil (but no one knows when that hits or what it even means) and this is the cause of the problem. Forget it. Peak oil implies a supply-demand equation, and no such mathematics is working like that here.

The cheerleaders for capitalism tell us that one of the great things about capitalism is supply and demand. It is true that this is an excellent way of fixing prices, and it is possible that socialist economies ignore this at the risk of their extinction. But oil prices have nothing to do with supply and demand! Nothing!

The fundamentals of the oil and gas market are exactly the same as when oil was $60/barrel back in 2006. Whether the market can go back to the $20/barrel in 2002 is not known; possibly it cannot. Check out this great, prophetic Tom Friedman column from that year wondering if the Iraq War will shoot oil to the horror of $60/barrel.

But as far as supply and demand go, oil ought to be no more than $60/barrel and I assume that gas should be no more than $2/gallon or so. So why is it $120/barrel instead of $60?

Because capitalism doesn’t necessarily work on supply and demand. The rest is just sheer speculation. Traders are pulling their money out of the sinking dollar and plunking it right into oil and other commodities, and it’s sure been a nice ride all right. Just a bunch of speculators bidding the price up like crazed buyers at an auction; that’s all it is. That’s the cause of your $4/gallon gas.

Oil reserves are at their highest levels since 1999. Gasoline reserves are at their highest levels since 1993 (!) But surely demand is rising, China and India and all that? Nope, demand has been falling all year now and will probably fall even into the summer.

On the other hand, oil refineries are not necessarily doing that well at all, at least according to them. They are getting killed by high oil prices on the one hand and low gasoline demand on the other. In order to make a decent profit, refineries have deliberately cut back oil production. The purpose of running the refineries at low speed is to push up the price of gas even further.

Distillates such as airline fuel and diesel have seen their prices so through the roof, and there are shortages of these, but they are deliberately created by the industry. If there were, why are we exporting more distillates than we are importing. Not only that, but imports of distillates have crashed by some 40% in a year.

It would seem that in all of this insanity something like a National Industrial Policy would be called for. For decades, countries South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan and now China, not to mention most of Western Europe, have done just that.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that capitalism with no government (free market neoliberalism) is an orchestra of great musicians with no composer. At some point, it’s the economic equivalent to an insane asylum or an elementary school playground.

We can also see that that all of the feverish nostrums peddled by the politico-media Lying Classes are loads of garbage? We need to fly to Saudi Arabia and beg the Saudis to turn up the oil spigots! We need to drill in the Arctic!

We need to drill everywhere, off the beach next to your house! We need to get rid of environmental regulations and taxes that make gas so expensive! And last but not least, the favorite of right-wing liars everywhere, we need more refineries!

We do not really need any of these things, at least at the moment. The oil refineries lie is one of the most evil of them all. It is probably peddled by the stinking garbage in human forms that run the oil industry itself.

The line goes like this:

-Oil is high!
-Why is it high?
-Hardly any new refineries since (insert year)!
-Why not?
-Evil environmentalists! Evil regulations! They’ve made it impossible to build new refineries!
-(sputtering) Bastard environmentalists and regulators! Get rid of them so we can build more refineries!
-Yes, yes, yes!

The thing is, this whole line is just an incredibly devious lie peddled by Oil Company Scum and their gargoyle allies in government and media and rightwing politics. No regulations have gotten in the way of building any new refineries in the US.

The industry itself has flat out refused to build new oil refineries in the US because industry does not want to create more refinery supply. Low numbers of refineries are good for keeping gas supply low and prices high. The conversational ruse above is designed to get rid of existing environmental and other regulations at existing plants.

This ethanol mandate crap is about to do the same thing to food prices. My advice if you are worried about your money to put it into food stockpiles, preferably non-perishable. Food is going to go up in value quite a bit soon – it is already – and it is not going to be pretty.

It’s looking ugly and it’s going to get uglier. We socialists have in general done a superb job of feeding people and a way better job of feeding people than capitalism has (despite the Mt. Everest of capitalist lies about how socialism starves people) and hopefully a hungrier world will find more socialist-oriented policies are better for filling the belly.

My bullshit detector was screaming the other day when Yahoo Headlines shouted in my ear that Congress was going to be briefed on how evil North Korea was helping wicked Syria build a diabolical nuclear reactor.

I remember well when Israel bombed the plant in question.

I looked into the story extensively at the time and my conclusion was that Syria was building a chemical weapons plant, not a nuclear reactor plant, at the site. The North Koreans are experts at chemical weapons stuff and the Scud missiles to shoot them with, and that was apparently why they were there.

Now there is reportedly a new video showing that evil Syria was just about this far (index and thumb nearly touching) from building a devilish nuclear power plant, to build nuclear bombs with, to load on missiles, to shoot at Israel, to kill all the Jews!

To kill all the Jews! To kill all the Jews! To kill all the Jews! To kill all the Jews! To kill all the Jews!

Holocaust 2. Holocaust 2. Holocaust 2. Holocaust 2. Holocaust 2. Holocaust 2.

This is obviously a Jewish media cabal influenced article, and all such articles include the Holocaust Porn fetish typical of most Jews nowadays.

The Holocaust traumatized them, but they’d already predicted it for millenia, and it had already been attempted over and over according to them, because Jews really do love to believe that their enemies have been trying to exterminate them all from day one!

The whole history of the Jews, according to them, is Jews fending off mad Final Solution attempts by Persia-Nazis or Roman-Nazis, or Russian-Nazis, or Arab-Nazis, or This-Nazis or That-Nazis.

You can’t understand the Jew until you get to the Holocaust Porn thing. It’s not just his own death; that’s bad enough. The baddies are never going to be satisfied with one Jew. They are going to do every single last one of them.

Understanding this helps shed light on phenomena like Zionism: Go Nazi ourselves, steal some land, arm to the teeth with nukes, and dare the anti-Semites to wipe us out.

How bout Iran? Does Ahmadinejad want to kill one Jew? Course not. He wants to kill them all.

Does the PLO and Hamas just want to kill a Jew here and there for sport? Nope, they want to “destroy Israel” = code for kill all the Jews.

Why do Jews need to go to Israel? Because evil whatever-Nazis in the Diaspora are getting ready to kill all the Diaspora Jews.

For Chrissake man, it’s porn! It’s Holocaust Porn! It’s a fetish already. How else to explain the absolutely sickening and clearly unhealthy Jewish obsession with the horrors of the Holocaust. Holocaust museums, coming soon to a city near you. Holocaust Museum, my Jewish girlfriend took me to visit her very own, this was an essential part of our romance.

What’s a Jew reading these days? Oh, a Holocaust novel. Or maybe some non-fiction, surely with a Holocaust twist somewhere in there. Hollywood has a Holocaust hardon . Seems every year there’s more and more Shoah tales.

I do not have enough information yet to look into the North Korean – Syria reactor thing yet, but I have studied Syria’s nuclear program in the past. My take was that Syria has been working on a nuclear program for about 25 years now but has made little headway due to shortages of money, technology, brains, etc.

This is actually quite common; many smaller countries have similar nuclear projects in the ruts. People just do not get it. Rome was not built in a day, and neither was any nuclear program. They require a highly developed economy and always take years and often take decades to even get going.

Even when they do, there is one problem after another. The super brains like A. Q. Khan of Pakistan are few and far between, and he’s under house arrest.

So let us say I am somewhat skeptical that Syria was about “this close” to building a nuclear weapon.

Advice to a 26-Year-Old Man

Repost from the old site.

At age 26, you can get tons and tons of sex if you want to, and you don’t even need any money. Hook up with a woman about 28-34 yrs old with a college education. If you are a student, she will think that you have tremendous potential. If you are out of school and working but not making enough, at least you will be working.

You can actually make some money in your 20’s, especially your late 20’s, even though the whole world is united against you in making money since you are too young. It is here that you understand the war of the Old Men on the Young Men, and how it keeps young men poor.

A woman around 28-34 is at the peak of her sex drive, just about, especially the 34 yr old. Well, if you want to, you can have sex for hours a day or three or four times throughout the day. This is known as acquiring a Sex Maniac Girlfriend.

This age for a man is fantastic, because at age 26, some women are actually letting men bang them all the time who are not their husbands, and they do not even charge for the sex either, which makes no sense in Female Logic, as sex is usually a commodity to be traded to the male for money.

In many cases resulting in a female scam called “all her money is for her and all your money is for her.”

And all this while you are not even married.

These women will hate you in a way for your lack of money and sex mania, but a man that age can easily have sex three or four times a day and even have sex for maybe hours a day, though try not to damage your dick if you do it. It might only last a couple of months, but it will be the best couple of months you ever had in your whole life. And you don’t even have to get married either! Haha!

She will have other guys either dumped on the side or else actively going, and may temp you with stuff like, “This weekend I am going off with one of my other boyfriends. The BLACK boyfriend!”

She will accuse you of being an animal in bed, which will be a truthful assertion.

She will say all that you ever want to do is have sex, which will also be true, and that the only reason you are around all the time is to fuck her, and that is all you even care about. This may be true but requires endless deep contemplation and meditation.

She will suggest that you hate women and that you have been hating them your whole life, even though you have been trying to screw everything that moves and has a skirt for years. This may set off endless worrying, but not necessarily.

Perhaps you do hate women, and if so what of it? It’s actually a love hate thing, and as long as you don’t hit them or insult them too much, it’s pretty fun, and it’s probably not even true anyway.

She will say you are the biggest sex maniac she has ever known, and this is probably true. You may now wear the Sex Maniac button proudly.

You will try to go buy a new Sex Maniac Girlfriend, but they are sort of hard to find, and most of them are getting into the age where they are charging bigtime for the pleasures of banging them. But you will always have memories.

When White Nationalists Complain About Jews

Repost from the old site.

Problem is, there is almost no way to do this without sounding like this guy.

German nationalism probably only dates to the 1880’s, and Italian, Russian and Pan-Slavic nationalism barely to the turn of the century.

Otherwise, nationalism in the modern sense really only arose in Europe with the French Revolution (though it was present first in England in the 1600’s with the defeat of the Spanish Armada), but it took the other nations mostly until the end of the century to adopt nationalism. Modern European nationalism is a relatively new phenomenon.

These modern nationalists pretty quickly took an interest in race, along with the usual volkisch blood and soil bullshit. And most European nationalists agreed on one thing: the Jew was no good.

More recently, in the very early 20th Century, Nordicism began to evolve in Germany and in the US and the UK. I once had a copy of a proto-Nazi book by a German race scientist delineating all of the races in Europe and the surrounding area detailed down to the last detail. It was published in 1918.

This newer nationalism transcended the older nationalism of the one nation in an attempt to unite all Northwestern Europeans under some sort of a superior Nordic or White Race. At the same time, pan-Slavism and even Islamism developed (Yes, modern Islamism only dates to around 1900 or so).

Southern Europeans were quickly defined out of the equation by Nordicists, especially in the US where they were widely despised, but Hitler actually put Meds second only to Nordics. He hated Slavs, but this was mostly because he said they were a “slave race”.

They were a slave race apparently because they had allowed themselves to be enslaved by Jews in the form of Jewish Bolshevism or Communism. The fascists’ main beef with Communists was that the Communists tended to be anti-nationalist.

And it’s simple to see why Jews have been in the forefront of seeing that White ethnic consciousness or nationalism is dead and buried forever.

This is why the anti-racists (who, granted, do bash away at Whites) are so often Jewish. This is why Noel Ignatiev has founded an organization to make Whites go away forever. This is why Tim Wise exists. This is why Jews so often decline to identify as White. This is why there are so many Jews on the board of the NAACP. This is why Jews pushed the 1965 Immigration Act and could well be why they pushed civil rights so hard.

Let’s face it: it’s hard to believe that US Jews really care about civil rights while they supported their KKK-Jewish brethren in Israel. Forget it. There must be another motive.

All of this Jewish behavior made the White Pride crowd dislike Jews more and more with every punch in the ring.

Anti-Semitism is not monolithic; some of it is pretty harmless stuff. But when you start talking about your blond hair and blue eyes and your White race and White blood and then start slamming away at Jews, people, especially Jewish people, do tend to see historical parallels that are not necessarily present in other anti-Semitic brands.

And who could blame them?

Those Latin Lovers

Repost from the old site.

Frequency of orgasm by nation (!)

More polls like this!

Who wins? You had to ask? Italians! Rudolf Valentino, Sophia Loren, Robert DeNiro, Isabella Rossellini, Leonardo DiCarpio.

Runners-up? Those nasty Slav fascists in Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia. Something about that hot-blooded Mediterranean race?

Number 4? Nasty, evil Jewish Zionists from Israel! Ew, gross! Boo! Hiss! I always wondered where Jewish women got this reputation for being frigid. Not my experience. Wonder why they get off so much? Nothing like the terror of a Hamas or Hezbollah rocket landing on your head in the middle of the act to really get you into a rip-roaring mood for the petit mort?

Most frigid? Chinese, Indians and cold Finns. Finns are too depressed to get off, and it’s too damn cold to screw most of the time anyway, though I can’t think of a better way to warm up.

As far as the Chinese and Indians go, I guess that’s where centuries or millenia of ultra-misogyny gets you. They’re so terrified of their women’s sex drives, they’ve tuned them down to near-zero. Way to go, guys.

The bit about men faking orgasms is downright bizarre. As Woody Allen says, everyone of mine has been right on the money. When we don’t come, it’s painfully obvious to everyone. Women bitch about having to fake it, but at least they get to fake it.

Figures about lifetime never getting off for women seem low. I’ve heard it ranges up to 20-25% even in the US.

Blood Sacrifice in Hinduism

This article was submitted to me by “Anonymous” and it shows just how backwards of a religion this ancient pagan religion called Hinduism actually is.Animal sacrifice to the Gods, and worse, human sacrifice to the Gods, with the hope of gaining the Gods’ favors, is one of the most ancient of human religious beliefs. Pagan Europeans did this before Christianity. Of course the pagan Mesoamericans did it, most horrifically recalled. And the Judaism of the First Temple period was centered around the most insane animal sacrificing the world has ever seen, comparable to this Hindu festival below.

I read under your latest ‘Hellish, Cruel India’ post a statement that ‘Shazam’ made-

‘In true Hinduism there was ritual sacrifice of animals and humans conducted by a hereditary caste of priests known as Brahmins.’

Blood sacrifice still occurs in Hinduism on a mass scale. There is an incredibly gory Hindu festival called the ‘Gadhimai Mela’ that occurs in the Bara district of southern Nepal every 5 yrs. Google ‘Gadhimai festival’ & check out the photos & articles – it is brutal. The festival lasts a month, the festivities include the world’s largest animal sacrifice.

The last ‘Gadhimai Mela’ was in November 2009, an estimated 500,000 animals were sacrificed (by beheading) with over 5 million Hindu devotees observing these rites in honor of the Hindu goddess ‘Gadhimai’. It was explained to me by a local Brahmin that the water buffaloes & the other animals sacrificed represent different sorts of ‘evils’ & somehow sacrificing to the goddess Gadhimai will balance out evil & bring prosperity. Most of the devotees are Madhesi people from India in Uttar Pradesh & Bihar as well as the Terai in Nepal; many Sikhs have been spotted actively sacrificing animals too.

In 2009, more than 20,000 water buffaloes were sacrificed on just the 1st day of the ‘Gadhimai Mela’. According to a friend of mine who is active in PETA it is quite horrific, around 200 men behead the animals in a concrete temple/abbatoir. Blood & terrified animals were everywhere he said. Google the images, it looks bad. In addition to water buffaloes, goats, roosters, pigeons, white mice, pigeons, ducks, & pigs are also sacrificed. My PETA pal was threatened when seen photographing the festivities and his camera partially broken.

Most Hindus still deny there is ‘blood sacrifice’ in their religion, but I’ve seen both animal & a few human remains of temple sacrifices to Hindu goddesses. One was an 7 yr old girl in India – her liver was cut out & offered in a Hindu temple to a goddess. India has an actual law against human sacrifice so you know it’s been an issue.

We are due for another ‘Gadhimai Mela’ in November 2014.
