He kinda looks like a reluctant customer to me.   See Jesse’s hand behind his neck?    I guess being a gofer for the super wealthy has its drawbacks.

Why “Joker” was Bashed by Mass Media

When I was 21… not the Sinatra song, but when I, Patricia, was 21, I followed 20th Century Fox to Los Angeles and watched movie previews almost every evening. Movie critics comprised the audience. After the lights came up, if I felt good and had enjoyed the film, the critics talked about their dislike of the movie. If I felt bad and didn’t like the movie, the critics would praise it to the heavens. Apparently, “Joker” is a movie they didn’t like – not that I would like to watch it, for it sounds gory, but it might, therefore – if critics hate it – have some redeeming, albeit dark, social value in terms of current events.

You might not want to support this movie. One commenter at VigilantCitizen.com wrote:

“I truly believe this movie was created to spark mass violence and create exactly what the movie portrays. Killing people and the byproduct of it creates attention for said killer. Evil. Pure evil.” Another commenter wrote,

“I’m sorry but I personally don’t think that Joker is a good movie despite what you wrote VC. The only good thing about the movie is Joaquin Phoenix’s performance, but story wise the movie is thin. And the most obvious thing, TOO MUCH unnecessary violence. I know the movie makers probably think all the violence depicted in the movie is justified to show the transformation of Arthur Pleck to become the Joker. But c’mon, when you have no solid story in your movie that you need to show all the violence to distract the audience, that is NOT good filmmaking. And I’m not the only one who thinks this way. A lot of my friends, even those who are suckers for violent action movies, also think that this Joker is TOO violent.

“That being said, I agree with some other users here in this forum that comment this movie is not anti-media. As a matter of fact, I personally believe this movie is actually 100% part of the agenda despite it’s anti-media persona. I believe there are 2 goals this movie is trying to accomplish:
1. It makes people become more tolerant and accepting towards violence esp. against other people. In these few years, we have seen how people have truly lost their kindness and compassion towards other human beings. A lot of people (sadly) rather choose animals over other fellow humans. In other words: we, as a society and human beings, have lost our love for other people. This movie only reinstates that violence against other human beings is not only justified or acceptable, but also necessary to “purge” society from the “bad people”.
2. As the media has pointed out, they’re afraid this movie will inspire more Joker-wannabe shooters in the future in a world where there has already been a lot of shootings happening lately. In other words: they’re trying to bring the gun violence issue again so that society will become more prone to accept gun control effort by the government.

“So no, I don’t buy for one sec that the media is giving this movie a backlash because they feel like this movie is a “threat” to them for going against the agenda. I believe the media is on this as well to make the movie reach more mass. You can see that due to so many backlash, people even become more interested and curious about this movie. The Joker has already broken so many box office records even before reaching its 2nd week, further proving that bad press = good press to them.”

Protect your mind and your children’s minds from suggestions this psy-op movie might hold. From VigilantCitizen.com:

In this day and age, mass media critics do not evaluate movies by their artistic merit, but by the direction of their political message. To be deemed “good”, a movie needs to check a list of “agenda” boxes. Well, Joker does not check any boxes and it also goes against the grain. It is an uncompromising piece of art that is more akin to a low-budget auteur film than a DC Comics blockbuster. And, through its deeply unsettling character study of a “loser” who turns into a famous murderer, the movie provides a scattering critique of mass media.

Apparently, media sources did not appreciate the subversive messages in the movie and were quick to deem Joker “problematic”. Even before the official release of the movie, countless news articles associated Joker with “angry white men” and feared it would inspire Joker-copycats who would perpetrate mass shootings. Judging by the insistence of these articles, it was as if mass media was actually looking to speak into existence such as shooter by guaranteeing immediate and worldwide coverage of such an event. Appropriately enough, the movie addresses this exact brand of mass media perversion.

Indeed, on several occasions, the movie highlights the role of mass media in the creation and the validation of the monster that is Joker. And, on a wider scale, the movie links this media coverage to an uprising of the masses who identify the Joker as their hero and leader. In fact, while Joker is a bad guy, the bigger bad guy in the movie is mass media.

And real-life mass media did not appreciate the critique…

Although “Joker” was praised by most “serious” movie critics, mass media sources bashed the movie in all ways possible, even deeming it “dangerous”. Is it because the movie is actually bad? Or because it goes against their [Luciferian] agenda?…

Politics in a nutshell: Pelosi explains ‘wrap-up smear’ tactic

This tactic has been used for a very long time and it is being used on almost a daily basis now that swamp creatures in DC feel threatened by the Swamp-Drainer-in-Chief.

Step 1) Tell lies about your opponents.

Step 2) The press dutifully publishes the lies.

Step 3) Then you can say, “Look! It’s the truth! You know for sure it’s true because it was reported by mainstream news outlets!”

The solution? Transparency in all things.

Harvesting Children: A New Vaccine for Consequences of Medicalized Child Abuse

New York doctors researching for long-term solution for ear infections

Doctors in the Rochester Regional Health Network in New York are taking on a new look at a long-time problem.

In a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, doctors are studying ear infection-causing bacteria to gather data in an effort to help the CDC develop a new vaccine….

https://www.clickondetroit.com/health/new-york-doctors-researching-for-long-term-solution-for-ear-infections

Problem reaction solution: treating the consequences of formula feeding with a new vaccine.    Of course it would be far cheaper and more merciful to just let babies do what all other primates do: breast feed.   But these rocket scientists seem to think they know everything about everything.   Literally.   Their egos know no bounds, consistent with medical cult indoctrination.

Soon they’ll market a vaccine for questioning authority as their credibility implodes.   Why not if they can dress it up in the appropriate PR?   And there’s no artificial trails in the sky and AQ attacked us on 9/11 and your TV loves you and the government is busy spreading peace and freedom around the world.    Gag.

Of course every good solution creates a new problem, demonstrating the endless business opportunities available under the disaster capitalism model:

Study: Ear infection profile shows change after pneumococcal vaccine introduction

Ear infections in young children have declined over the past decade since pneumococcal conjugate vaccines were introduced, and though infections from Streptococcus pneumoniae—the main cause of such infections—have dropped, other pathogens have stepped in as the main sources, researchers reported yesterday.

The findings, from a longitudinal study published yesterday in an early online issue of Pediatrics, provide one of the first glimpses of the epidemiology of acute otitis media (AOM) since the 1980s, before pneumococcal conjugate 7 and 13 vaccines were introduced. Since then, experts have tightened the clinical definition of and changed treatment guidance for AOM, the most common condition treated with antibiotics, a concern given rising antibiotic resistance levels.

According to American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) estimates, more than 5 million AOM infections occur each year in US children, resulting in 30 million doctor visits and 10 million antibiotic prescriptions….

http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2017/08/study-ear-infection-profile-shows-change-after-pneumococcal-vaccine

They could simply redefine AOM to be any ear infection which is not caused by lack of breast feeding.   Given the ignorance of BF by most doctors, this is already happening by default.  Redefinition worked great for the polio vaccine.  Problem solved, medicine triumphs again.  Where’s my medical diploma?

Just to point out the glaringly obvious: “mammal” means breast feeding babies.   It is extremely abnormal for mammals to not breast feed.   Mammalian babies of other species DIE without their mothers milk.  Sorry, mammals are just made that way.   I realize there are problems sometimes, especially resulting from pathologized birth.    (A whole different can of worms http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2018/08/wtf-theyre-teaching-about-birth-in-medical-school/ )    But having a baby implies breast feeding, regardless of the medical normalization and marketing ( https://banthebags.org/48/ ) of expensive and toxic ( http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2012/10/omg-aluminum-contamination-in-baby-formula/ ) baby junk food and mother deprivation.   When mom can’t do it wet nurses are available, much to the chagrin of the fuud industry.  http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/12/wet-nursing-human-breast-milk-classified-ads/

This is just more medical torture.   (literally, ear aches can be torturous).    It starts with birth.   Let that sink in.   Medical child abuse is a major crisis (and a major cash cow) in this country.

Abstract
Human milk provides infants with antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory agents that contribute to optimal immune system function. The act of breastfeeding allows important bacterial and hormonal interactions between the mother and baby and impacts the mouth, tongue, swallow, and eustachian tubes. Previous meta-analyses have shown that lack of breastfeeding and less intensive patterns of breastfeeding are associated with increased risk of acute otitis media, one of the most common infections of childhood. A review of epidemiologic studies indicates that the introduction of infant formula in the first 6 months of life is associated with increased incidence of acute otitis media in early-childhood. More recent research raises the issues of how long this increased risk persists, and whether lack of breastfeeding is associated with diagnosis of otitis media with effusion. However, many studies suffer from lack of study of younger populations and imprecise definitions of infant feeding patterns. These findings suggest that measures of the association between breastfeeding history and otitis media risk are sensitive to the definition of breastfeeding used; future research is needed with more precise and consistent definitions of feeding, with attention to distinctions between direct breastfeeding and human milk feeding by bottle.

But the ultimate insult is that vaccination itself is associated with AOM:

…. Acute illness

Vaccinated children (N=405), combining the partially and fully vaccinated, were significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have had chickenpox (7.9% vs. 25.3%, p <0.001; Odds Ratio = 0.26, 95% Confidence Interval: 0.2, 0.4) and whooping cough (pertussis) (2.5% vs. 8.4%, p <0.001; OR 0.3, 95% CI: 0.1, 0.6), and less likely, but not significantly so, to have had rubella (0.3% vs. 1.9%, p = 0.04; OR 0.1, 95% CI: 0.01, 1.1). However, the vaccinated were significantly more likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with otitis media (19.8% vs. 5.8%, p <0.001; OR 3.8, 95% CI: 2.1, 6.6) and pneumonia (6.4% vs. 1.2%, p = 0.001; OR 5.9, 95% CI: 1.8, 19.7). No significant differences were seen with regard to hepatitis A or B, high fever in the past 6 months, measles, mumps, meningitis (viral or bacterial), influenza, or rotavirus (Table 2).

… Chronic illness

Vaccinated children were significantly more likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with the following: allergic rhinitis (10.4% vs. 0.4%, p <0.001; OR 30.1, 95% CI: 4.1, 219.3), other allergies (22.2% vs. 6.9%, p <0.001; OR 3.9, 95% CI: 2.3, 6.6), eczema/atopic dermatitis (9.5% vs. 3.6%, p = 0.035; OR 2.9, 95% CI: 1.4, 6.1), a learning disability (5.7% vs. 1.2%, p = 0.003; OR 5.2, 95% CI: 1.6, 17.4), ADHD (4.7% vs. 1.0%, p = 0.013; OR 4.2, 95% CI: 1.2, 14.5), ASD (4.7% vs. 1.0%, p = 0.013; OR 4.2, 95% CI: 1.2, 14.5), any neurodevelopmental disorder (i.e., learning disability, ADHD or ASD) (10.5% vs. 3.1%, p <0.001; OR 3.7, 95% CI: 1.7, 7.9) and any chronic illness (44.0% vs. 25.0%, p <0.001; OR 2.4, 95% CI: 1.7, 3.3). No significant differences were observed with regard to cancer, chronic fatigue, conduct disorder, Crohn’s disease, depression, Types 1 or 2 diabetes, encephalopathy, epilepsy, hearing loss, high blood pressure, inflammatory bowel disease, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, seizures, Tourette’s syndrome, or services received under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (Table 3)….

Partial versus full vaccination

Partially vaccinated children had an intermediate position between the fully vaccinated and unvaccinated in regard to several but not all health outcomes. For instance, as shown in Table 4, the partially vaccinated had an intermediate (apparently detrimental) position in terms of allergic rhinitis, ADHD, eczema, and learning disability….

Refugee Explosion “Even Greater” Than 2015 To Hit Europe, German Minister Warns

The German government is warning that a number of indicators suggest Europe could be on the brink of witnessing a new refugee crisis explode on its borders.

Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said early this week that refugees and migrants are set to flood Europe on a scale even bigger that the peak of the 2015 crisis“We must do more to help our European partners with controls on the EU external borders. We have left them alone for too long,” he told Germany’s Bild am Sonntag newspaper after returning from a visit to Greece and Turkey, where he inspected the renewed refugee crisis first hand.

“If we do not do that we will once again face a refugee wave like in 2015 or maybe even greater,” Seehofer warned  ominously.

Seehofer further said that if the EU doesn’t unite to find “strength to solve this problem problem” it faces total “loss of control” if and when the next major crisis hits.

At the height of the crisis three years ago, which was driven by the vastly destabilizing wars in Syria and Libya, and by the turmoil left in the wake of the Islamic State caliphate in western Iraq, there were near weekly mass drownings and accidents involving migrants attempting to traverse the Mediterranean, as well as fires and unrest at makeshift refugee camps in France and Greece. It further created turmoil in the domestic politics of multiple EU countries, with a number of right-wing populist figures and parties coming to power on anti-illegal immigration platforms.

And now, with Turkey on the brink of a major military incursion into northeast Syria, the Middle East is about to witness a major new conflagration resulting in potentially millions of new refugees being pushed out of the Turkey-Syria border region.

Coupled with that, Turkey’s President Erdogan recently threatened to release one million refugees on Europe if he can’t have his so-called ‘safe zone’ which is to reach some 30km deep (19 miles) inside Syrian territory. He threatened early last month: We will be forced to open the gates. We cannot be forced to handle the burden alone,” while demanding that European countries give political support to the controversial plan that would end in annexing UN member Syria’s sovereign territory.

Most Voters Agree With Trump’s Withdrawal From ‘Endless Wars’

A majority of voters polled by Rasmussen agree with President Trump’s statement that “It is time for us to get out of these ridiculous endless wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home. We will fight where it is to our benefit, and only fight to win.”

According to the poll, 58% agree with the above statement, 20% disagree, and 22% were unsure.

As Rasmussen notes, “Even 55% of Democrats agree with the statement,” adding the caveat: Rasmussen Reports did not identify Trump as the source of the quotation in its question.“…

America’s Political Implosion

The polarization in American politics has become so extreme there seems no longer to be any center ground. The political establishment is consequently imploding into an abyss of its own making.

President Trump is being driven into an impeachment process by Democrats and their media supporters who accuse him of being “unpatriotic” and a danger to national security.

Trump and Republicans hit back at Democrats and the “deep state” whom they condemn for conspiring to overthrow the presidency in a coup dressed up as “impeachment”.

The White House is being subpoenaed, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives wants to access transcripts to all of Trump’s phone calls to foreign leaders; Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blasted congressmen for “harassing the State Department” in their search of evidence to indict Trump. Trump calls the impeachment bid a “witch-hunt”.

Republican Representatives protest that the US is facing a dark day of constitutional crisis, whereby opposing Democratic party leaders are abusing their office by accusing Trump of “high crimes” without ever presenting evidence.

It’s an Alice in Wonderland scenario writ large, where the gravest verdict is being cast before evidence is presented, never mind proven; the president is guilty until proven innocent.

Trump, in his turn, has berated senior Democrat Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, for “treason” – a capital offense. Are federal police obliged to arrest him? Schiff is accused of colluding with a supposed CIA whistleblower in concocting the complaint that Trump tried to extort Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

There seems no end to this political civil war in the US. The American political class is literally tearing itself apart, destroying its ability to govern with any normal function.

So-called liberal media outlets, in lockstep with the Democrats, inculpate Trump for wrongdoing, while they staunchly assert that credible reports of Joe Biden abusing his former vice presidential office to enrich his son over Ukraine gas business are false. Many Americans don’t see it that way. They see Biden as being up to his neck in past corruption; they also see a flagrant double-standard of the establishment protecting Biden from investigation while hounding Trump at every possible opportunity, even when evidence against Trump is scant.

What Trump is being subjected to is the same “highly probable” paranoia that Russia has been subjected to by Washington over recent years. Guilt is asserted without evidence. It becomes a “fact” by endless repetition of baseless claims, such as Russia allegedly interfering in US elections, or allegedly destabilizing Ukraine. Hundreds of economic sanctions have been imposed on Moscow as a result of this blame game, a game that, ironically, Trump has also indulged.

Ironically, Trump and the very highest political office of president is getting the same phobic treatment. No matter that the two-year Mueller Report into alleged Trump-Russia collusion collapsed in a pile of dust for lack of evidence, the Democrats and their media, as well as their deep state patrons, have persisted to accuse the president of enlisting a foreign power, Ukraine, to boost his electoral chances.

The transcript of Trump’s phone call with Ukraine’s Zelensky back in July shows he did not make a quid pro quo demand linking US military aid to a requested investigation into alleged corruption by former Vice President Joe Biden. Nevertheless, Democrats and their political establishment allies are relentless in pursuing the impeachment of Trump. Based on such flimsy reasoning, this impeachment process looks like a euphemism for “coup” – to overturn the result of the 2016 presidential election. The so-called “Russiagate” debacle failed for lack of evidence; now it is “Ukrainegate” that is the pretext for pushing the coup attempt.

Under freedom of information release, Judicial Watch in the past week has uncovered categorical proof that the Mueller probe was a coup attempt to oust Trump. Unsealed communications between the Department of Justice, FBI and liberal media outlets show a clear motive and deliberate orchestration to topple Trump based on no evidence of wrongdoing.

America’s democracy and constitution is being trashed by unelected shadowy forces, aided and abetted by prestigious media outlets like the New York Times. These forces presume to know better or have more privilege than their fellow Americans who “voted the wrong way”.

The inescapable conclusion is that powerful political forces within the US simply do not recognize the democratic rights of the electorate who voted Trump into office. Not only do these forces not respect democratic principle, they also, patently, do not respect due legal process or the high offices of their own government. This is a lurking ideology of dictatorship and fascism. Paradoxically, these labels are pinned on the maverick Trump. More accurately, they apply to the politicians and media who claim to be “liberal” and “democrats”.

The accelerating political implosion in the US nails the lie to oft-repeated American proclamations about their nation being the paragon of “sacred” democratic virtue and rule of law. And the people who are doing the damage to US politics and its constitution are “patriotic” Americans, not Russia or any other imagined foreign adversary.

Is that not poetic justice after all the decades of calumny, deception and self-declared “exceptional” American vanity.

America is at war with itself. It is Americans themselves who destroying their own political system, and perhaps even the very society, with their own hands and their addled, paranoid brains – without any assistance from a “foreign enemy”.

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/10/09/americas-political-implosion/

I take strong exception to the last paragraph.   Democrats are acting at the behest of a transnational cabal of financial interests, the same interests that arranged for the gutting of american industry and the impending implosion of the dollar.   You can see the same forces at work with the creation of ISIS in syria and the forced mass migration into europe and the US via endless war and “security assistance” to dictators.   They are at war with the middle class all over the world, except, apparently, china.   Trump, for all his faults, is not under their control.

Many republicans are puppeted by the same interests.   This isn’t about ideology, this is about disaster capitalism on a humongous scale, imposed largely via pedophilia and blackmail.   Amazing.
