Abraham Lincoln was the best U.S. President, motivated by a patriotic and Christian desire to preserve the union of states and free the slaves. At least that is what modern textbooks suggest. There is a bigger story to the 16th President of the United States than the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation. A whitewashed version of the man is all that we learned about him in school. It is what our children and grandchildren are still being taught. Public school districts and universities have been dutifully parroting that the Southern states of Lincoln's era had a perverse culture, while Northern society was superior. This became the politically-correct mantra when 'teaching' about Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War for generations after the Civil Rights Movement. The identity politics is only getting worse, and more blatant.
The narrative is not only infused heavily with a liberal bias, but moreover, it is entirely wrong. Far too many Americans, both current students and adults, believe that the Civil War was a war about slavery. This liberalized version of history does not chronicle the political shenanigans that were undertaken by groups to harden their centralized (federal) grasp on power, as is still the case today. Most Americans do not believe that this issue was at play during Lincoln's era, but they are so very wrong. The current political atmosphere in America is a testament to how ignorance of history forces a people to repeat it.
Sex ought to be a sacred and loving exchange between consenting adults. Whatever it is and however it happens, it should be done in private. If we all do not agree with the first premise, you would think that most of us could agree on the second. There are certain behaviors that do not belong in the public sphere. The most obvious of these behaviors consist of bedroom and bathroom activities. Getting to work, catching a bus, buying coffee and holding a conversation would all be needlessly complicated if people were fornicating and relieving themselves thereabouts.
I do not seek to be vulgar, but we seem to be in a moment where the very notion of privacy is being eroded. Those amongst us who seek greater control over our lives are no longer content to regulate our actions in public. They want every aspect of our lives to be subjected to their scrutiny and approval. In order to accomplish this, they need our co-operation in removing the barrier of privacy, so that our private lives can be displayed in the public sphere. One way in which this is accomplished is by desensitizing us, by making whatever instinctually feels intrusive and unwarranted more commonplace.
We got the heads-up for this from thegatewaypundit.com. We have an actual Democrat strategy document from the Media Matters organization that openly talks about their coordination with the media and "social media" to suppress free speech and defame Trump. The document is about how they dishonestly manipulate us, in other words, while plotting to subvert our basic rights. Watch out for the phrase "propaganda" in the document, for it is used in place of "free speech". It is important to remember that the abbreviation "NAZI" stood for National Socialist.
Here is the document (PDF): Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action
Please notice how Orwellian and disarming the document's title is, despite perpetrating an attempt to end democracy.
A heated debate over charter schools erupted in a church basement in Detroit last week. The Michigan city has one of the highest numbers of charter schools in the entire United States. Local public school officials lamented the high percentage of students lost to charter schools and alleged the best place to educate a child is in a public school. The claim was a bold one for a school district that had only emerged from a decade of emergency state control last spring.
The Education Achievement Authority (E.A.A.) was introduced by Michigan's Democrat Governor, Rick Snyder, in 2011. It resulted in the state's takeover of the 15 poorest performing Detroit Public School District campuses. The plan to expand the program statewide evaporated after dismal results, and the influx of taxpayer funds to cover the district's existing debt never materialized.
Holy basil has been dubbed the "Queen of Herbs" in India, where the spice originated, and by a multitude of users who herald its natural healing properties. Some folks even refer to holy basil as the "elixir of life", due to its reputation for promoting both longevity and overall physical well-being. The Indian herb is also known as Tulsi. For centuries, holy basil has been used as an ingredient in Indian recipes to treat a vast array of conditions, ranging from ringworm to malaria. Holy basil should not be confused with the Western spice, known simply as "basil".
Holy basil can cure malaria, a mosquito-borne illness that causes a high fever, lethargy, skin rashes, and nausea. If malaria is detected in its early stages, consuming just a few holy basil leaves has been successful in stopping the disease, the Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Liver and Gastrointestinal Disease (2013) report revealed. Various mixtures of Tulsi and herbs, such as cinchona, have been used to combat and cure malaria for centuries.
There is no American who is ignorant of the fact that healthcare costs are currently exorbitant and prohibitive. We are collectively faced with the false narrative that healthcare is an inherently expensive endeavor, and thus people are either doomed to face bankruptcy in any free market, or the government must save us all with a single-payer model. Leftists posit that prior to the presidency of Obama, America suffered under a free market failure, and that people were too often bankrupted by unforeseen accidents and disease. They insist that the problem with Obamacare is that it did not do enough, and that affordable care remains impossible because the government did not remove the profit motive from medicine altogether. They say that we can only solve the affordability problem by demanding that our government save us from the real problem, which we are assured is greed.
It's not a new concept. Both health and culinary experts alike have espoused the benefits of eating seasonally for decades. In-season foods tend to be more fresh and flavorful, offering distinctive advantages to both your overall wellbeing as well as your taste buds.
It seems simple, but eating seasonally can be tough in locales that experience harsh winters, or for individuals living within modest means. However, when done correctly, eating seasonally can be done throughout cold winter months, and on any budget.
Many people have misjudged me over the course of the years, and misjudged the organization that I represent. We have borne the burden of stereotypes because of what we represent. We operate an alternative medicine research organization. Countless people have assumed that we must have very leftist political leanings, that we are uneducated, that we have promoted medical frauds which could have hurt innocent people, or simply that we are damn fools. In actuality, we are none of these things. Due to our reports about alternative medicine, and particularly in regard to our chastisement of mainstream medicine, many have assumed that we are crazed conspiracy theorists. We do, in fact, contend that there are pervasive conspiracies within our medical establishment and within our educational establishment. For many, this is exactly where the conversation stops. It stops when we start suggesting that there is something so terribly wrong that it must have been intentionally orchestrated, and it is therefore a conspiracy.
These are the scenes from our unfinished documentary, Prescription for Manslaughter. Work on the movie project was suspended for an undetermined amount of time, after we became distracted with some other projects, and our people seemed to lose interest. At some point in the future, we may finish the documentary. At the time when it was abandoned, keeping this site alive and completing our book became priorities. We feel that we should let this video presentation speak for itself.
Burning mouth syndrome (glossodynia) is diagnosed whenever a patient experiences the symptoms of a severely burnt tongue without any obvious cause. The symptoms include redness, soreness, and a sensation of being burnt that covers the entire surface of the tongue. The soreness continues for years in the worst cases. Throughout the manifestation of this disorder, a victim's ability to taste is reduced, as if a real burn had occurred. Over time, the condition can seem unbearable, as the soreness eventually morphs into outright pain. It is remarkably common for those who are afflicted to experience depression. These depressions may be caused by the overall suffering in some of the cases, for a person's pain-free enjoyment of food is a foundation of a satiated life, but there also exists the possibility that some of the depressions are associated with the same nutritional problem that commonly causes burning mouth syndrome.
It is generally accepted that burning mouth syndrome is a symptom of nerve damage, which is more formally known as neuropathy. The initial cause of the nerve damage varies, but it is due to diabetes in most cases. In the remaining instances, it is usually caused by pharmaceutical drugs, radiation exposure, vitamin B deficiencies, or exposure to toxic mold.
