Good beer tasting notes

Seems to me the strong stuff is more effective and not much different in calories. Light beer is some bullshit pretty much. Check out the chart in the second link to compare! Anyways, bar food is the biggest thing often that contribute to beer gut the article argues. But in a 2,000 calorie diet, if you aren't exercising on top of it and eating greasy bar food, that is where the gut really snowballs. Spread the wisdom.

I just happened to come across this researching my Palo Santo beer by Dogfish Head that is 12% and 360 calories. That is efficiency. During the dark ages when science was witchcraft and our ancestors toiled in their diseased filth beer was life sustaining. I recommend The History of the World in 6 Glasses if you want to know more about beer and other beverages that shaped our civilization as we know call it.

Peace and Hoppiness!

Recent comedy set, how solutions are problematic: healthcare to foreign policy

Starting to apply to some festivals as a performer. Here is one of the videos I am sharing. Enjoy and share please!

This is a good short set I performed at the Eureka Inn's Palm Lounge for the Open Mikey hosted by Nando Molina. I've got plenty more dark political stuff that could be paired with this stuff and hope to get a good set of that recorded someday.

Propaganda Bashing Hookah Persists

I just spotted this ridiculous article with five-thousand plus upvotes on Reddit's front page, Hookah Packs 25 Times the Tar of a Single Cigarette (Men's Fitness). IF you are not doing it right it is possible a hookah session would be so bad. These studies are so rigged, this article is just referring to a compilation of bogus research! Not even a new study. The tobacco industry and the pharmaceutical companies do not want people to use "smoking cessation" like E-cigs. They'd rather have you stuck on their crap like Chantix which has terrible SFX, like suicide and headaches, and a poor success rate compared to E-cigs, SNUS and hookah.

These "scientists" hook a hookah up to a vacuum basically and and it just sucks in like nobody ever would. Nobody tends to the charcoals and the bowl is probably packed like hell. If a person tried smoking like this they would cough their ass off and get a massive headache. There is also a valve for clearing the hookah and allowing fresh air into the chamber. As far as these so-called studies go it is not how people smoke hookah. If anything the usage of aluminum foil for the screen is the most unhealthy thing but I NEVER see anything about that. As for carbon monoxide, there are electronic heated ceramic coils that negate that entirely. Also tobacco is not the only surrogate for the fruit juice that is effectively vaporized, if done right. For instance sugar cane and other herbs, so no nicotine!

I have extensively read these studies and they are the equivalent of Thomas Edison electrocuting animals to "prove" how Nicola Tesla's AC power is evil. They do the same with E-cigs, they hotbox rats for weeks on end then promote the "negative" effects (I heard about this study and I cannot readily find it so sorry for not sourcing).

In Sweden SNUS, E-cigs and hookah are not demonized but embraced for their practicality in ending tobacco addiction. So hookah responsibly and use this logic to counteract the haters.


My make fun of Hillary Clinton contest entry

I think I am pretty good at writing topical material, even on short notice. I just happened to see that this contest was on the day it was due. The background is that Hillary Clinton called on The Laugh Factory to remove video of comic making fun of her. Odly she has pretended to believe in freedom on the internet. So Alex Jones put out a challenge with a prize of $5,000 first place for a video up to five minutes long making fun of Shillary. With ten hours to whip something together I wrote a pretty good set of jokes and filmed this bit. Hope somebody can get a few laughs out of it, even if I do not win the contest.

Being a comedian, revolutionary and free speech advocate, I took major issue with her attack on the Laugh Factory in LA.

Legit Bill Hicks quote picture

I noticed there are too few quotation pictures of Bill Hicks and figured I would throw some of his other great moments into the mix. Most of them are just the same quotes with different images. Enjoy this one and spread it around and look out for more. I will try and make a habit of this with many other comics. Here is the text in case you want a copy of it.

"I'm no bleeding heart, OK? But, when your walking down the streets of New York City and your stepping over a guy on the sidewalk who, I don't know, might be dead, does it ever occur to you to think, “Wow maybe our system doesn't work.” Does that question ever bubble up out of ya? I mean if it was only a couple of bums I'd think well they're fucking bums, but there’s thousands of these fucking guys. I mean I'm running like a bum hurdle down the fucking sidewalk."  
-Bill Hicks


The Heart of the World - Documentary

Just finished watching "Heart of the World," a 1991 BBC documentary on the Kogi people in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta highlands of Columbia.  The Kogi are a tribe of indigeneous who survived and successfully isolated themselves from Spanish Conquistadors.

Kogi men chew coca leaves constantly and have a life expectancy of 90 years. The narrator did well to compare coca leaves to coaine as dissimilar as rye bread is from from rye whiskey. Not a cokewhore to be seen in this culture.

The Kogi allowed a film crew to come and take a message to the world to stop hurting our Mother Earth, who they know as Aluna. They see their mountainous region in danger and they are alarmed since it provides a central pillar of life in the region. Snowmelt, sediment and so forth. The Kogi's former coastal cities are now pillaged by grave robbers. Their gold was taken by the Spanish and are under threat of "development" like power plants that sacred freshwater lakes are drained to install nearby, deforestation, mining, etcetera.

When conquistadors waged a moral crusade against the Kogi they used the absurd notion that all the men were homosexual as the basis to wipe them out. Apparently it was common belief in Spain that if it was not for Christianity men would be blowing eachother's brains out in a sexual manner rather than using muskets against "savages," as well as raping or enslaving while stealing their land.

The Kogi appear extremely peaceful and even quarrelling with one's wife is forbidden. They weave their own fabric and dress cleanly in white with a shoulder bag. The white clothing represents the purity of nature. Only men chew coca leaves that are prepared by the women. They carry around a gourd that symbolises the woman. It is filled with lime that breaks down the coca compunds after it numbs the mouth. The lime is extracted with a stick that symbolises the man. The priests of the Kogi are selected at birth and raised for 9 years in darkness. I doubt that would mesh with the child protective services Nazis.

Upon doing further research on the KogiI discovered that twenty years later the Kogi asked for the original filmmaker to return for another lesson about Mother Nature since we did not heed their warning. That new film is Aluna. I am providing the original documentary I found on YouTube and the preview of the new on below. "Aluna" is $2.99 on YouTube.

For more information about the Kogi and the Lost City (Ciudad Perdida): From the Heart of the World - The Elder Brothers Warning is a documentary about the Kogi people who inhabit the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain in northern Colombia.

Aluna Trailer by Alan Ereira : Alan Ereira : - The Kogi attach great importance to memory. The memory of events with which the community has been confronted, the memory of social regulations within the group and so forth. "Memory," they say, "is like eyes which were made to see.

Planned Obsolescence: Why products we buy suck

Scope this documentary The Light Bulb Conspiracy on the bluntly named International Energy Cartel. This group of industrialist asset holders got together and agreed to limit the life of products so they could sell us more crap. Internal documents are presented in this film or facts not fiction.

If your pissed at how crappy things are built from panty hose and hair ties to computer printers and light bulbs then watch this to learn more. This phenomena is responsible for escalating the degradation of the environment, pollution, mining, wasting resources and forcing people to waste more of their lives. 

San Bernadino Shooting America in the Foot

Unlike a slew of nitwits who assumed facts on the recent shooting in San Bernadino I have been waiting for some facts to surface before speaking up. It turns out that Muslim jihadists were to blame, not crazy white men as many gun control advocates jumped to believe. Additionally these folks were being watched by the FBI? Stellar monitoring skills, clearly.

Apparently the shooting coincided at a place where active shooter scenario drills have been performed monthly for some time. According to the LA Times when a women saw the activity durig the shooting she texted "Drill started." Also, the Washington Times reported the couple behind the shooting recently travelled to Saudi Arabia and were meeting with four others in the US who were watched by counterterrorism officials.

So despite the virtual obliteration of privacy and surveillance on America this attack happened. So what is the point if it results in a complete failure?

More gun control will not solve the issue as the guns were obtained llegally to boot. Two amendments on expanded background checks applying to guns in private sales and online purchases failed to pass in the Senate. The White House is considering an Executive Order to bypass Congressional approval. In the clip below a reporter asked if stricter gun control would have prevented the shooting and White House press secretary Josh Earnest replied, “Of course not.”

Something stinks. Like the visa process the shooter Tashfeen Malik went through giving a fake address and previously declaring loyalty to IS on Facebook. The State Department spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau replies to a reporter in the video below that she is satisfied with the their work. Perhaps the point of the terrorist watchlist is to watch them perform acts of terror? Then strip Americans of more rights each time.

Great job invading Iraq on false pretenses and facilitating this virulent strain of Al-Qaeda. Without ISIS a flesh eating parasite would not be able to fluorish from dumping all the bodies in the street. Nor would the military industrial complex be able to thrive and the dimishing of security and privacy fo all.

All the ways Big Brother is watching you [YouTube]

Privacy as we once knew it is dead. We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology-specifically the technology employed by the government against the American citizenry. As a result, warns John W.

ISIS bans Nike brand, sounds like Arabic for "sex"

Instead of the sweatshop dependent practices of the brand Nike being a problem, or part of the Great Satan of the USA, Nike is banned by ISIS for sounding too much like "sex" in Arabic. This article states, "The punishments for both seller and buyer of Nike goods range from a small fine to imprisonment or whipping." I am sure I could write all day about unusual aspects of ISIS and strange rules they have.

Here is another article from RT, ISIS have fetish for kinky underwear, Viagra, and ‘abnormal sex’ – report. There are all sorts of rules against clothing that shows anything considered sexual or even using words believed to be sexually explicit.

Any organization is bound to be corrupt. It would be legit to see a movement in the Arabic world to recognize the aspect of Quran that is unfortunately all too ignored. 30:32 "(And do not be) of those who have divided their Deen and become sects, every faction rejoicing in what it has." This article discussing that part of the Quran says "the verses that call for unity often get ignored and are replaced with scholarly opinions that promote sectarianism." I believe there is similar ignored guidance in the origins of Christianity.

Texas Trooper shot fleeing motorcyclist then jumpkicked him off his bike, trooper suspended 5 days w/o pay

In December 2012 25-year old Steven Gaydos ran a stop sign on his motorcycle and went on a high-speed chase with Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) trooper Abraham Martinez. Martinez's camera caught what unfolded on film. Gaydos was fleeing to avoid his vehicle being impounded for driving wit a suspended license, it is unclear for what reason it was suspended. After reaching speeds up to 130 mph Martinez fired four times at Gaydos' allegedly to disable the motorcycle which he assumed was involved in some sort of crime. Gaydos was struck in the leg and pulled over when Martinez jump kicked him off his bike. Martinez's logic as taught by his experience is that running from police involves stolen vehicles which are used by criminals after commuting some other kind of crime.

Apparently assuming some crime then shooting somebody in that ass, or leg, and jumpkicking them does make an ass of oneself in a way, Martinez was suspended for five days without pay for suspended for three days without pay “violating DPS policy by using force inconsistent with his training.”  DPS does reserve the right to shoot at fleeing suspects though, as stated later on.

This is one story that came from an investigation by the  Austin American-Statesman into how  fleeing suspects are handled. If anyone was injured or killed by Martinez it is possible Gaydos would have been charged with it as happened in Florida in this previous post of mine, Police kill innocent bystander, charge suspect with murder.

Prosecutors drop charges rather than expose spy tool in armed robbery trial

This article from RT simply states "An officer with the St. Louis Police Department’s Intelligence Unit had been scheduled to deliver a deposition under oath on April 9 concerning tactics that authorities relied on to identify and ultimately charge four suspects with 14 counts of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action regarding a 2013 crime spree." That is until the sudden dismissal of charges. Three of four involved in this case were set to go to trial, while one defendant already .

Of course publicly the prosecution denies a link but fails to give a justification. The Stingray is a spying device used to simulate cell-towers to track individuals. The Baltimore Sun was able to discover that SLPD was told not to “distribute, disseminate or otherwise disclose any information” without expressed written approval of the FBI. Apparently letting armed robbers go free is worth more than revealing the nature of these Stingray devices to the public.

Clintons made tons of cash while Shillary Clinton was Sec. of State

A new book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Richexposes a tendency for large amounts of cash paid to the Clinton's who then seem to have made decisions benefiting the sources of the money. Of course with the two-party system construct the Clinton's and allies can write off the book as a right-wing attack. This is pretty goofy in the sense that the political spectrum is so narrow in the pro-wrestling-ish drama of politics today. They are all part of the political wrestling business where they do not attempt to actually hurt one another, nor do they openly admit their scheme to anyone outside the circle.

Historically, “Of the 13 [Bill] Clinton speeches that fetched $500,000 or more, only two occurred during the years his wife was not secretary of state.” Bill Clinton made $13.3 million for speeches in 2011 alone. The article also notes ties with the conflict in Ukraine:

from 2009 up to 2013, the year the Ukrainian crisis erupted, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, which is headquartered in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, calling into question whether the donations were an attempt to curry favor from the US State Dept. Several alumni of oligarch Pinchuk's program have already graduated into the ranks of Ukraine’s parliament, while a former Clinton pollster went to work as a lobbyist for Pinchuk at the same time Clinton was working in government.

Another unusual example cited Hillary changing her position as Secretary of State on Columbia, after millions of donations to the Clinton Foundation from a Columbian oil-company she changed her positions and supported a US-Columbia trade deal. Another layer of questionable practices came from McClatchy noting Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates gave $40 million in donations to the CF. All of those countries are involved with terror funding and human rights violations. The Wall Street Journal reported $68 million in CF donations from "elite donors with close ties to foreign governments and state-run companies while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state."

How do these practices not appear to be a payoff to a member of the existing government mafia? The CF is revising its policies in the midst of this press fallout which is a clear admittance of questionable practices that a unlikely to do anything to retroactively remedy those donations. It will be useful funds in Hillary's second run for president, just one layer of the unfair competition in US elections.

If you are interested check out this old school character Norman Dodd who discussed revelations he had as director of research for the thwarted attempt at a congressional investigation into the activities of tax-exempt foundations.

Norman Dodd was interviewed in 1982 by G. Edward Griffin regarding the time he spent as the head researcher for the Reece Committee. This is a truly eye opening look into what the tax exempt foundations are doing in the United States - their attempt to merge the Soviet System of Government with the USA.

Former DA worker: Planting weapons on police victims standard operating procedure

This claim came from a FOX News legal analyst while discussing the shooting of Walter Scott by police who then were filmed plating a "stolen" taser on the victim. Arthur Aidala said. “Police officers – I hate to say this – would keep a second gun that nobody knew about on their ankle, so if they ever killed someone they shouldn’t have they would take that gun out and leave it.” This certainly would stack the deck in the favor of the prosecution with the supreme value of law enforcement versus a lowly and likely dishonest criminal. I am surprised they did not bother to sprinkle some crack on Scott.

Defense industry twice as lucrative than S&P 500

Despite S&P 500 having 30 percent in growth the past two years the defense industry is twice as lucrative, "Dow Jones U.S. Aerospace and Defense Total Stock Market Index has grown at double the rate of the S&P, increasing in value by 60 percent." With the continued spread of the War on Terror it is unlikely such booming business will stop. Certainly there must be some in that industry of "defense" who have no interest in peace.

Freddie's dead and the Gray area of racist legacies; homicide charges for BPD

Baltimore's police department homicide victim Freddie Grey had a lengthy criminal record of mostly non-violent crime before being murdered by them. I see only a second-degree assault charge on his rap sheet. The altercation leading to his death appears to have no just cause, only citing illegal possession of a switchblade. Unless he was walking around playing with it, the switchblade could have been planted on him too, then he was likely being harassed by police he had a history with. Time will tell if any justice is to follow the announcement of homicide charges being filed against officers involved. Regardless, breaking a man's spine, lying that he walked fine though he was clearly injured and screaming in pain, then not calling medics for 42 minutes, there is no excuse for this behavior by anyone, especially in authority..

It is tragic the legacy of racism creates crime rich ethnic areas with no opportunity. It is the epitome of "the man" keeping people down. Instead of slaves, today many African-American's are slaves to a welfare system, constant monitoring by social services, police patrols and ultimately sadistic babysitters while kept in cages. It has already been clear that the crack epidemic was in part a CIA operation, revelations chronicled in the recent biographical Hollywood portrayal of Gary Webb, "Kill the Messenger."

What a great follow up to the civil rights movement. After a long history of oppression, any thoughtful student of history can see a constantly morphing tendency of self-fulfilling prophecy aimed at justifying the misfortunes of black folks in America.

It is no surprise to see the massive demonstrations, mostly non-violent, that follow this outrageous result of police activity. Whether those acting violently or destroying property are provocateurs or not is one question. Regardless there is certainly some righteous violence that can result from the continuous violent oppression of people. Franz Fanon believed that acts of violence are necessary to overcome the multi-generational psychological baggage of such a colonial history. Fanon's insights foresaw decades of disaster in Africa that followed after his writings. Here is a bit on such views from the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy:

Les Damnés de la Terre is a more abstract analysis of colonialism and revolution.  It has been described as a handbook for black revolution.  The book ranges over the necessary role Fanon thinks violence must play in decolonization struggles, the false paths decolonizing nations take when they entrust their eventual freedom to negotiations between a native elite class and the formers colonizers instead of mobilizing the masses as a popular fighting force, the need to recreate a national culture through a revolutionary arts and literature movement, and an inventory of the psychiatric disorders that colonial repression unleashes.

If corrupt killer cops being strung up as human pinatas is needed to offset such a terrible history, it would not even come close to the live slow centuries of slavery with BBQing of black men to lynching and suffering at the hands of police African-Americans today. Without an interwoven fabric of oppression the system of inequity could not persist. Misfortune, however contrived, helps promote momentum for the system as it exists. A global crabs-in-the-bucket of not-so free markets, relying on slavery and environmental exploitation. Ignorance, inequality and dehumanization are major factors that need to be addressed to turn the tide against such evils. In the meantime keep the cameras handy, that is one way we can shoot police that may be fatal to their ingrained system of injustice, cruelty and sadism.

Obama attacks TPP critics, claims transparency while it is not

This article points out the irony of Obama's administration, once self-promoted as the most transparent in history, now claims the TPP text is not secret when nobody can read it except select people in Congress who cannot take notes, pictures, bring staff or get copies of it. The Trans Pacific Partnership is a looming threat to the already virtually non-existent free market that will also undermine the sovereignty of nations involved. Industry leaders of Hollywood have more access to the document than members of Congress. Obama is throwing a fit publicly about dissent on the TPP:

“The one that gets on my nerves the most is the notion that this is a ‘secret’ deal,” Obama said. “Every single one of the critics who I hear saying, ‘this is a secret deal,’ or send out emails to their fundraising base saying they’re working to prevent this secret deal, can walk over today and read the text of the agreement. There’s nothing secret about it.”

Once again the light of day would vanquish these dark proceedings, if only it was transparent. These conspirators are spending loads of time and money into constructing this plan. If it fails they will likely tuck it into a bill on government transparency, because that is how evil people get off on being evil.

Montana law prevents federal militarization/minionization of police

Montana Governor Steve Bullock just signed into law House Bill 320 which helps insulate their law enforcement from becoming tools for the Federal government and prevents bribing with military grade weapons. This trend of re-purposing military weapons to American police is part of the 1033 program. If bills like this were passed at the local and state level cross country only the National Guard or the military will use these tactics creating a more cut and dry picture of tyranny in America.

The elite are certainly more comfortable with the continued awareness the internet can grant to the population of police brutality, injustices that result and the false flag attacks that have promoted a slew of unjust wars overseas producing demand for such weaponry. The resulting upheaval of a corrupt government can only be suppressed by force, otherwise the will of the people may achieve some real change.

This article cites specifically from the law:

Section 1 of the new law declares:
A law enforcement agency may not receive the following property from a military equipment surplus program operated by the federal government:
(a) drones that are armored, weaponized, or both;
(b) aircraft that are combat configured or combat coded;
(c) grenades or similar explosives and grenade launchers;
(d) silencers; or
(e) militarized armored vehicles.
Section 2 sets additional barriers along the road toward federalization:
If a law enforcement agency purchases property from a military equipment surplus program operated by the federal government, the law enforcement agency may only use state or local funds for the purchase. Funds obtained from the federal government may not be used to purchase property from a military equipment surplus program.

Pepsi to use Aspartame alternative, Splenda, another toxic sugar substitute

Pepsi appears to be removing a controversial and toxic sugar-substitute, Aspartame, and replacing it with Sucralose. in the United States. This will result in a change similar to the substitute of the gas additive Lead with MTBE, another toxic substance to take the place of another. The article notes that Aspartame:

breaks down into its constituent amino acids aspartic acid, methanol and phenylalanine . Methanol breaks down further into formaldehyde, formic acid and diketopiperazine. Methanol is a toxin on its own, and its sub-units have been demonstrated as carcinogenic.

Sucralose and Aspartame were both accidentally discovered in a lab. I would not want an accident to be a major part of my food. Perhaps the health-unconscious should stop drinking soda and get some exercise. Otherwise this will end up a a sheeple-cycle of chasing one's tail.

Here is a thorough film, Aspartame: Sweet Misery, on the health effects of Aspartame and how war-hawk Donald Rumsfeld used political connections to push this most-contested food additive ever through the FDA and into the food supply.
