Prior to the interview Janel discussed recent news related to obstetrics.
The term “Pit to Distress” is now common language and a contributor to the high, medically unnecessary cesaren sections rates in the US.

http://www.theunnecesarean.com/blog/2009/7/6/pit-to-distress-your-ticket-to-an-emergency-cesarean.html

“administering the highest possible dosage of Pitocin in order to deliberately distress the fetus” …. DISTRESS THE FETUS?!

This is child abuse and endangerment and is barbaric. This human’s brain and functioning imprinted during birth will be distress. Why/how are they allowed to do this? Morally? Legally?
Scientific?

Janel also spoke of the effort by American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in 2008 to ban vaginal birth after cesearean and to come out against midwifery, who recently posted notice to members (OB’s) to post their anecdotal stories of failed homebirths that transfered to their care in the hospital. After a massive deluge of successful homebirth stories to their site the page was made private. Social networking sites such as FaceBook, Twitter, and MySpace allowed homebirth families and advocates to spread the word about the survey. This is a link to a blog where a captured image of ACOG’s survey, now off their site, can be seen:

Article that Rich read:

I just wanted to point out two examples of how this country is being raped by the powers that be, and that the corruption which is destroying this country is systemic and pervades practically every last bastion of authority, from the catholic church to the banking sector to the medical profession.

I was at my doctors office today and picked up a time magazine from last July. I skimmed over two articles, the first stated that the relative decline of the US economy in the context of an integrated globalized marketplace is not necessarily bad news for average Americans. The problem with this, aside from the fact that the impending economic collapse was thoroughly predictable and was consciously orchestrated by the transnational banking cartel which
owns the federal reserve, (see file# 0042817 at https://sos-res.state.de.us/tin/GINameSearch.jsp ) is that the US dollar is the most widely circulated currency in the world. Exports of US debt and dollars is the hollowed out foundation of the US standard of living. We no longer have a manufacturing base worthy of a first-world country, thus we have lost much of our export market and one of the pillars of the buying power of the US dollar.

When global investors realize the depth of the economic hole our so-called leaders have dug for us, with many of our manufacturing jobs exported to other countries under a federal tax code which rewards US corporations which export these jobs, ( http://understandingtax.typepad.com/understanding_tax/2008/08/6-how-the-tax-code-subsidizes-businesses-that-move-jobs-elsewhere.html ) these investors will be lining up to cash out of dollars by the droves. Those dollars will come back to an economy which is already in a deep recession with over 20%
( http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data ) unemployment (over 30% in Michigan) and they have to go somewhere. The result will be massive inflation, perhaps hyperinflation.

Time magazine goes on to blame “deadbeat American households” for the financial crisis, which is the most evil kind of lie imaginable. The initial $700B bailout was more than enough to pay off the mortgages of every American household. The core of the financial crisis is the derivative speculative bubble, the credit default swaps and collateralized debt obligations which comprise the bulk of the $250trillion toxic waste ( http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-700-trillion-elephant-room-theres?dist=SecMostRead ) hanging around the necks of the Wall Street banks which have been deemed too big to fail, the liability for which is being transferred to the
American taxpayer under the Obama administration.

Furthermore, Time magazine’s blaming of American homeowners for the credit crisis is truly an example of blaming the victim. There used to be laws in this country against predatory lending. These laws were blatantly ignored by the federal government under the bush administration, which even went so far as to actively block state government investigations into predatory lending in all 50 states using a civil-war era law which allowed the feds to pre-empt the state attorneys general. When governor Eliot Spitzer blew the whistle on bush’s malfeasance in a Washington Post Op-Ed, ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/13/AR2008021302783.html ) he was soon busted for patronizing a prostitute.

And therein lies the segway into the second time magazine article that caught my eye: the wholesale breakdown of the institution of marriage in this country. In all likelihood Spitzer is among the 75% of American men who have been circumcised (i.e. sexually and emotionally lobotomized) by American medicine under a long series of false pretexts, of which HIV is only the most recent example. Time admonishes us to take marriage seriously, as if we are collectively guilty of forgetting our genetic programming and recipe for emotional fulfillment. What they forget to point out is that we as a society have been emotionally crippled by our own medical
profession. Let me play an audio track of what American baby boys have had to put up with for over a century, something which usually occurs behind closed doors in soundproofed rooms.

Next week our guest is Marilyn Milos, RN. In 1985 Marilyn founded and is the director of the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resources Centers (NOCIRC), the first organization in the US to address the circumcision issue. Marilyn is the organizer of the Internatal Symposia on Circumcision, Genital Integrity, and Human Rights. There have been ten symposia, and Marilyn is working on the 11th one now. She is co-editor of six symposia books and she is editing the seventh book now.

Marilyn will discuss restoration of the circumcised penis and will share her most recent concern” “the agenda by white North Americans to push circumcision in Africa to prevent AIDS, a strategy that is sure to fail — but how many will suffer and/or die in the meantime — not from AIDS but from circumcision?

Marilyn was featured in Showtime’s Penn and Teller piece on circumcision embedded here.

CDC is coming after your foreskin – Rich

It seemed like circumcision was rightly about to lose its place in American culture.

The American Medical Association spoke out about the US-centric procedure in 1999, saying:

“Virtually all current policy statements from specialty societies and medical organizations do not recommend routine neonatal circumcision, and support the provision of accurate and unbiased
information to parents to inform their choice.”

Vastly less common in Europe and of dubious medical benefit, the controversial procedure has steadily been losing ground among people who might have opted for it for non-religious reasons. But that trend may begin reversing again, thanks to a new recommendation from the CDC.

Dr. Peter Kilmarx, chief of epidemiology for the division of HIV/AIDS prevention at the CDC, looks to be starting a new campaign to throw the baby’s foreskin out with the bathwater, stating
<http://inquisitr.com/5gCu5> :

“We have a significant HIV epidemic in this country, and we really need to look carefully at any potential intervention tthat could be another tool in the toolbox we use to address the epidemic,” Kilmarx told the newspaper. “What we’ve heard from our consultants is that there would be a benefit for infants from infant circumcision and that the benefits outweigh the risks.”

Strangely, other Western countries have neglected to routinely circumcise babies and don’t seem to be suffering rates of HIV significantly higher than those of the US. It’s also fairly clear at
this point that the odds of contracting HIV from standard man/woman banging <http://inquisitr.com/vTj> are pretty low. What do you think- barbaric practice, or necessary protection for the locker room?

August 24 – Guest, David Chamberlain, PhD

Janel, introducing today’s guest, Dr. David Chamberlain:

Dr. David Chamberlain is a Psychologist, teacher, and pioneer in the new field of Prenatal Psychology. He is the author, “The Mind of Your Newborn Baby” published in 1988 as “Babies Remember Birth” and it has been translated in 22 languages. Dr. Chamberlain is the co-founder of the Association for Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health, an organization of professionals from diverse disciplines, psychology, obstetrics and midwifery, nursing, trauma healing, and child birth education, from all over the world.

Dr. Chamberlain is internationally known for his work and is a frequent speaker at international conferences. He is currently finishing his second book, “Windows on the womb: Your first nine months” and he is preparing for a three week tour in September of countries in Europe where he will be sharing key ideas from this new book. Dr. Chamberlain has been a key person in my professional development working with babies and I am very happy and we are so grateful, David, that you could take time today to be with us …..

RECENT RESEARCH THAT RICH SHARES:

Forget Survival of the Fittest: It Is Kindness That Counts

A psychologist probes how altruism, Darwinism and neurobiology mean
that we can succeed by not being cutthroat.
http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=kindness-emotions-psychology&page=2

(…) DISALVO: Your team at U.C. Berkley has done a lot of interesting research on the vagus nerve and its association with maltruistic feelings. Tell us a bit about this research and its
implications for better understanding the nature of altruism.

KELTNER: The vagus nerve is part of the parasympathetic autonomic nervous system. It is a bundle of nerves that originates in the top of the spinal cord, it activates different organs throughout the body (heart, lungs, liver, digestive organs). When active, it is likely to produce that feeling of warm expansion in the chest, for example when we are moved by someone’s goodness or when we appreciate a beautiful piece of music.

University of Illinois, Chicago, psychiatrist Steve Porges long ago argued that the vagus nerve is a care-taking organ in the body (of course, it serves many other functions as well). Several reasons justify this claim. The vagus nerve is thought to stimulate certain muscles in the vocal chamber, enabling communication. It reduces heart rate. Very new science suggests that it may be closely connected to oxytocin receptor networks. And it is unique to mammals.

Our research and that of other scientists suggests that the vagus nerve may be a physiological system that supports caretaking and altruism. We have found that activation of the vagus nerve is associated with feelings of compassion and the ethical intuition that humans from different social groups (even adversarial ones) share a common humanity. People who have high vagus nerve activation in a resting state, we have found, are prone to feeling emotions that promote altruism-compassion, gratitude, love, happiness.

Arizona State University psychologist Nancy Eisenberg has found that children with elevated vagal tone (high baseline vagus nerve activity) are more cooperative and likely to give. This area of study is the beginning of a fascinating new argument about altruism-that a branch of our nervous system evolved to support such behavior.

Abstract:

Clinical Studies have demonstrated that the cries of chronically stressed infants, medical compromised infants are characteristically higher and more variable in pitch than those of healthy infants. Other studies have indicated that the vagal tone of chronically stressed infants is significantly reduced in comparison to that of normal infants. A neural model of cry production has been proposed which suggests that decreased vagal tone among infants at risk may, in fact, be related to these increases in cry pitch. Using routine, unanesthetized circumcision as a model of stress we were able to examine the relationship between cry acoustics and vagal tone in
normal, healthy newborns undergoing an acutely stressful event.

Vocalizations, heart, and respiratory waveforms were continuously recorded from 49 (32 experimental; 17 control) 1-2 day-old, full-term infants during preoperative, surgical, and postoperative periods.

Vagal tone, as measured by the amplitude of respiratory sinus arrhythmia extracted from heart rate data, was significantly reduced during the severe stress of circumcision, and these reductions were paralleled by significant increases in the pitch of the infants’ cries. In addition, individual differences in vagal tone measured prior to circumcision surgery were predictive of physiological and acoustic reactivity to subsequent stress. These results emphasize the potential role of vagal control of the autonomic nervous system during stress.

August 17 – Guest, Colin Knauf

On Monday, August 17th our guest was Colin Knauf, a father, entrepreneur, author and researcher on the primal period of life. Listen to the podcast here. http://members.tranquility.net/~rwinkel/janel/TCR090817.mp3

This is a script of what Rich read with links following:

Shock doctrine:

I just wanted to help generalize the notion of what the shock doctrine is and how it can be applied in different domains. Naomi Klein deals with the shock doctrine in the economic domain, but the same principle can be applied in the medical and neurological domains as well. The shock doctrine is about traumatizing, colonizing and manipulating the behavior of large scale networked systems of individuals. Those individuals can be human beings in societies, human cells and processes involved in birth, or networked neurons in the brain. All of these systems are composed of very large numbers of individual entities, each one acting out essentially the same internal “programming” (so to speak) but in the context of different local environments. So for instance all the cells in your body have the same set of DNA, yet some cells become bone, some become skin, hair, muscle etc, depending on each cell’s micro-environment. It’s a miracle as unexpected and complex as mathematical fractals, which in a sense is what these self organized systems are.

The shock doctrine involves traumatizing the system by interrupting its self-organized internal processes so as to delete or replace the historical information embedded in it, creating a new system which in some sense is colonized by and dependent on the external disruptor for its survival.

One way to do this in the economic domain is through the control of money and credit. Money and credit are essential for even the most basic economic activity in this country. Getting produce from farmer to supermarket involves the free flow of money and credit between the farmer, the supermarket, the fertilizer industry and all the middle-men between them. If the commercial paper bond market stops functioning, as it did briefly last year, food shipments would stop even though the farmer has food that the consumer would be willing to trade his labors for. Although money is not real wealth (you can’t eat it or build a house with it) it is a standardized unit of value which is an essential catalyst for large scale economic activity. And our money system is under the control of private corporations, up to and including the federal reserve. Search for record number 0042817 on the Delaware state government’s division of corporations if you don’t believe me. This is an opportunity for conquest of this country by these same corporations.

The neural net version of the shock doctrine is accomplished via psychiatry’s use of electric shock treatment to partially erase the information encoded in the brain’s neural net, allowing for a crude form of reprogramming and, essentially, brainwashing.

This radio program is mainly concerned with the shock doctrine’s use in American obstetrics, which has the effect of imprinting trauma and/or sensory deprivation, or creates a state of dependency of the baby on medical procedures and concoctions which would not otherwise
have been wanted or needed. The disruption of normal physiological birthing processes creates a cascade of medical interventions which can impair the baby’s development and have life-long adverse effects even if the birth goes smoothly by medical standards.

MGM: (Male Genital Mutilation)

Please put down whatever you’re doing and listen very closely. You may never hear this information again. Take out a pen and paper because you’re going to want to write down some google search terms. I also have a blog on the columbia tribune’s web site called “spells”.
It’s under the reader blogs section. And get a copy of Naomi Klein’s book “The Shock Doctrine“, because it describes the economic future of this country.

Who am I and why should you believe me? I’m just a dedicated newshound who for 20 years has has access to the most powerful instrument of intelligence gathering ever invented. I’m talking
about the internet. Why should you believe me? I don’t want you to believe me. I only hope that you’ll be sufficiently intrigued that you’ll investigate this for yourself. As a demonstration that something very alarming is happening in this country, go to video.google.com and do two searches. The first search is “wtc bombing rare”, the second one is “okc bombing rare”. These deal with the world trade center bombing in 1993 and the Oklahoma City bombing in ’95. The mass media is worse than broken. It is a tool of criminals and traitors who manipulate public perception from the shadows. We are living in the matrix.

This country is under siege from virtually every direction: economically, educationally, socially, psychologically, sexually, neurologically, pharmacologically, nutritionally, ecologically and
most especially informationally. The intelligence of the physical body can heal it from many physical wounds, but there’s no healing a misguided and well controlled mind.

Our future as a soverign and relatively free country is under severe threat. And the solutions which will be presented as a remedy for the impending trauma will close a trap which has been in preparation for decades. This has nothing to do with democrats vs republicans. The tools of control go much deeper than politics.

What I’m about to explain is only one aspect of the converging tidal waves which are bearing down on this country. I’m going to be brutal here. You’re not going to want to hear what I’m about to say. But you need to hear it, for your own sake but most especially for the sake of the future, if this country has a future.

We’re all responsible for our own actions, but no one lives in a vacuum. Our environment affects us tremendously, most dramatically and indelibly, our EARLIEST environment. As Janel can explain better than I, the fetus’s neural net indelibly imprints, I repeat IMPRINTS (you need to look this up) and retains everything that it senses. What it can sense at MINIMUM is sound, maternal hormones such as stress hormones, and probably maternal neural activity as
well. No one really knows all the profoundly intimate connections which exist between a pregnant woman and her fetus. Suffice to say that the mother’s environment, the mothers heart beat and breathing, her voice and feelings, begin imprinting on babies at some level
long before they are born. Imprinting is a well known and studied phenomenon among all mammals, and the power of its influence on a person’s life is readily apparent from a little reflection on how a neural net operates. Early experience creates the mind’s perceptual
foundation and its interpretation of future experiences throughout its lifetime. The newborn baby is already well developed and capable of imprinting at the moment of birth. It is also acutely sensitive to sensory input. These scientific facts have somehow escaped the notice of the american medical establishment.

What is imprinted on a boy’s brain at birth by standard American obstetrical practices is nothing less than physical and psychological torture, which physically, sexually, emotionally and socially impacts him for the rest of his life. There is no turning back.

Let me explain something about basic male sexual anatomy that they don’t teach in american medical school. The primary erogenous zone (which means pleasure sensing zone) of the male body is called the frenar band. It contains 10′s of thousands of fine touch receptors. It is far more touch sensitive than the fingertips. It is the male counterpart to the woman’s inner and outer labia and G-spot. And here’s the most incredible fact. It is part of the foreskin. It is
routinely CRUSHED by a sterile vise and cut off at birth by american obstetricians and pediatricians, under the euphemism of circumcision. And it has been done under a series of demonstrably false pretexts dating back over a century.

Here is a google search term: 3 words: taylor lockwood prepuce. The first two google hits confirm what the creator has given to humanity, a priceless source of ecstatic joy, parental bonding and family cohesion, which is routinely tormented and amputated by
american obstetrics.

The immediate psychological impact of this trauma on young boys is well studied and documented: google cansever circumcision.

The long term psychological impact in adults has also been studied, including its relationship to violence against women: google Rhinehart circumcision.

The pleasure sensory deprivation which results from male genital mutilation has also been linked to warfare and violence in the afflicted society. Google “Body Pleasure and the Origins of Violence”

Finally, the brain damage which results from this operation, and its utility as an instrument of social control, is the subject of at least 2 published papers in psychiatric journals. Google
circumcision ronald immerman.

Circumcision became a routine medical procedure in this country about 6 generations ago, and it has had a predictable impact on the happiness, cohesiveness and mental health of american families and communities. In ancient history circumcision was the mark of a slave, and for good reason: it impacts the victim’s capacity for transcendent emotional connectedness with his mate, which corrodes both family and community cohesiveness. Emotional connectedness is the foundation for community self organization. Isolated and alienated people are much easier to manipulate and control than people who possess empathy and understanding for themselves and their fellow human beings. Thus, circumcision facilitates the domination of local communities by larger and wealthier social structures such as religions, corporations and nations. Whether accidental or deliberate, the consequences are the same: circumcision has the
effect of disempowering local communities, making them vulnerable to external colonization. It can thus be seen as a tool of large scale social manipulation and control, and has been explicitly promoted for this purpose by rabbinical scholars centuries ago. Google: decoding the rabbis circumcision, and rambam circumcision.
