Anti-Vaxxer Not Here

By Bill Lawrence

To eliminate all confusion, I’ll spell it out that I’m not an anti-vaxxer. Anti-Vaxxer Not Here

I think vaccinations are a good thing. I have been vaccinated up the kazoo all my life. I’ve never worried about polio or smallpox or the whooping cough. If I cut myself on a rusty car part, I hope my tetanus shot is up to date.

Anti-vaxxers, mull this around: What’s preferable, a foreign substance entering your body via the broken end of a rusty muffler  or  via a sterile needle?

Just the same, if a family wants to live a vaccine-free lifestyle, I support and defend their right to do so. The catch is that I also support and defend the rights of organizations to require vaccinations to participate in them. In fact, I think public schools should require vaccinations. Certain businesses  such as medical facilities where contact with at-risk populations is to be expected should require vaccinations.

The way to make everybody happy is to provide alternatives to those who want independent lifestyles. Examples would be cyber-schools and subsidized homeschooling for anti-vaxxer families.

Regarding conspiracies, I live in Lyme disease ground zero. A while back, I asked my doctor for the since-discontinued vaccine. He talked me out of it saying he was only recommending it for those doing outdoor labor. In other words, the risk/benefit health issues was being taken seriously by the professionals. There was no push to get me to take this substance. There is no conspiracy.

Tyler Vigen Correlation Charts

Tyler Vigen Correlation Charts Margarine Consumption Maine Divorce

It has been discovered that there is almost a perfect correlation (.992558) of per capita consumption of margarine in the United States with the divorce rate in Maine.

And did you know that the correlation between the number of people who died by becoming tangled in their bedsheets with revenue generated by American skiing facilities is .969?

Pretty spooky.

And let us not even try to consider the strange connection between swimming-pool drowning deaths and Nicolas Cage movies.

Kudos to Tyler Vigen  for the noble effort to show that correlation does not equal causation.

North Korea Not Behind Sony Hack?

Sony Pictures computer network was the subject of a massive security breach on Nov. 24 and reams of embarrassing documents were leaked to the public.

Something calling itself the Guardians of Peace using the ironic acronym GOP took credit on Dec. 9 and demanded  that the studio cancel the Seth Rogan comedy “The Interview” that was scheduled to be released Christmas Day.

The film features the killing of North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong-un. North Korea, while praising the hacking, denied responsibility.

On Dec. 11, the GOP released hacked data describing Sony projects aimed at stifling piracy of its products. On Dec. 13, it released data exposing investigations that Sony was bribing Chinese officials.

On Dec. 16, the GOP sent out a notice implying there will be terrorist attacks at theaters showing the movie.

Sony pulls the film on Dec. 17 and announces that  it has  “no further release plans for the film.” President Obama  makes a televised statement  that night saying that Sony shouldn’t have done it and should have checked with him.

Sony CEO Michael Lynton — a one-percenter and a personal friend and major supporter of Obama — responds to the President on Dec. 19 saying  “I did reach out. We definitely spoke to a senior advisor in the White House to talk about the situation. The White House was certainly aware of the situation.” He also says the studio plans to get the movie to the public.

Also, on Dec. 19, the FBI makes it official that North Korea was behind the hacking. It had been leaked to the media two days earlier that North Korea was suspected.

On Christmas Eve, Sony makes “The Interview” accessible on streaming services and gives it a limited theatrical release the next day.

It gets mediocre reviews.

And that gets us to today. Computer security experts are  saying the evidence as to who is the cause for all the fuss now indicates a disgruntled employee working with hackers for piracy groups. They are wondering why the FBI was so quick to release a statement pinning the actions on North Korea.

“When the FBI made the announcement so soon after the initial hack was unveiled, everyone in the [cyber] intelligence community kind of raised their eyebrows at it, because it’s really hard to pin this on anyone within days of the attack,” said Kurt Stammberger of Norse.

Errata Security‘s Robert Graham goes so far as to call the FBI evidence “nonsense.”

The Taia Global security firm, says a linguistic analysis of the hacker’s messages indicates Russian speakers rather than Korean.

For the record, the FBI is sticking to its North Korea claim. But the quickness of its conclusion and the doubts of non-government experts do make one go hmmmm.

For what it’s worth, our favorite conspiracy theory is that Obama is doing this as payback to Lynton to help him pump up an otherwise forgettable film.

Regardless he should be impeached. Even Biden would do a better job and that’s saying a lot.

Fake Cellphone Towers, What’s Up With That?

The ultra-secure CryptoPhone 500 came on the market  not that long ago courtesy of ESD America and one of its features is an ability to find things that are not part of the standard cellphone network.

And one of the things it found was  17 fake cellphone towers spread around the country, according to Popular Science.

EDS CEO Les Goldsmith described these towers as “interceptors” which look just like regular cellphone tower but are not part of the official communication network. He said they  allow eavesdropping on calls and text along with pushing spyware to the device.

He said a lot of them were close to military bases. He expressed a concern that perhaps they were not placed by our government but a foreign one such as China something that would be frankly hard to believe possible but for the JV squad now in running our nation’s security.

Note that the 17 were the only ones found.

Gamechanger Shows Media Corruption

A private Google group called Gamechanger Salon set up by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt has more than  1,000 members reports

The members included a CNN contributor, two a U.S. News & World Report columnist and a producer for Al Jazeera American television.

The group’s existence was discovered by Media Trackers through an open records request filed with a University of Wisconsin professor who happened to be a member of the network.

What is discussed on the board is how to advance socialism through the media outlets entrusted to them.

It is proof positive of widespread dishonesty in the establishment media and that only a fool would trust it.

Aeroflot AFL2074 Target Not MH17?

Michael Ledeen — a former consultant to the United States National Security Council, the United States Department of State, and the United States Department of Defense — has written at that a theory has been seriously broached that the real target of  the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels who shot down  Malaysian Airlines Flight 17  was  Aeroflot airline AFL2074 that was filled with Russian passengers.

He said the idea was cooked up by Vladimir Putin for use as a pretext for the invasion of the Ukraine.

Pennsylvania Seed Library Smacked Down By State

The Cumberland County Library System thought it had a neat idea. With the local Penn State Agricultural Extension System and the Cumberland County Commission for Women, it created a seed-gardening program — aka a seed library — that allowed residents to “borrow” seeds in the spring and replace them with new ones harvested at season’s end.

It was launched on April 26, Earth Day, at the Joseph T. Simpson’ Public Library in Mechanicsburg as part of the borough’s Earth Day Festival.

Sixty signed up.

Oh pity them for they didn’t realize they were part of a nefarious plot to violate  the Pennsylvania Seed Act of 2004 signed into law by then Gov. Ed Rendell.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture sent a high-ranking official and a bevy of lawyers to the library in July to shut the program down and make sure those running things got their minds right.

The Seed Act is about proper labeling in the sale of seeds, which the library was not doing. Apparently our state officials feared the seeds might be mislabeled on purpose hence allowing terrorists to spread poison ivy or some such thing.

Some cynics think the crackdown is because big agriculture doesn’t want competition no matter how small.

When is it going to dawn on the rest of you that really stupid and/or greedy people are governing our lives?

TISA Draft Sparks WikiLeaks Paranoia

The leaking of a draft of an international Trade in Service Agreement (TISA) by WikiLeaks is getting press.

The agreement would allow service-based companies — which include insurance, audiovisual, financial, information technology, express deliver and telecommunication firms — greater access to customers in other nations.

This would  be especially helpful to American firms.

WikiLeaks, the site founded by America-hating-whackjob  Julian Paul Assange, is quite angry about the agreement and is crying conspiracy.

A couple of questions to ponder:

When are drafts of agreements ever released to the public?

Why if it is such a big secret was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce praising the plan in a press release four months ago?

WikiLeaks can be described as a site dedicated to the selective leaking of documents designed to make the United States look bad. It has but 225 pages related to the People’s Republic of China, that bastion of sweetness and light, versus 9,720 pages to items the United States would have preferred to  have been kept under wraps.

By the way, most of the PRC stuff was leaked from the U.S.

For the conspiracy minded, WikiLeak’s TISA leak was done on June 19 and can be found here.

Audrey Hudson Home Raided By Feds

Audrey Hudson Home Raided By FedsThe home of Audrey Hudson, a reporter for The Washington Times, was raided the pre-dawn of Aug. 6 by Maryland State Police and the Department of Homeland Security’s Coast Guard Investigative Service. They apparently were looking for a “potato gun” belonging to her husband, Paul Flanagan, who was a Coast Guard employee.

Flanagan has yet to be charged with anything although raiders did take notes pertaining to Ms. Hudson regarding stories she had written exposing problems in the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Air Marshals Service, and questioned her as to whether she was the Audrey Hudson who was writing those nasty stories.

The raid occurred at 4:30 a.m. and the raiders were wearing full body armor.

Have you read about this in the establishment mouthpiece papers? Silly question.

Michael Bloomberg Conspiracy Questions


Michael Bloomberg Conspiracy Questions

Some Michael Bloomberg conspiracy questions

Billionaire New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s magazine is warning of “radical legislators” and saying we must fear the debt ceiling debate, namely an unwillingness to raise it.

Here’s some things to ponder: why is there no call to fear deficit spending which has been chronic in the Obama administration? The U.S. budget last year was $3.8 trillion. According to the Treasury Department interest expense on outstanding debt was $359.8 billion. How much of that money does Mr. Bloomberg, who is the 13th richest person in the world, get? His friends? If deficit spending continues will they get more money?

Note that through October of this year we have spent  and $415.7 billion on interest.

Now, just suppose that due to this dispute we fail to make a payment and find ourselves in a technical default? Do you really think people would stop lending us money at a excellent rate if the reason for the missed payment was obviously that we were trying to get our house in order. Don’t let those with an interest in imposing a crushing burden on us panic you. If we can’t say no we can’t be free.
