Anti-Jewish Attacks and Mass Shootings; Psychiatric Drugs, Gun Control, Knife Control

A wacko intruded on Hanukkah candle lighting services at a rabbi’s synagogue in Monsey, New York and attacked 5 people, stabbing them with a knife. The attacker attempted to get away in his Nissan Sentra but he was stopped and arrested by police.

New York has had several incidents of anti-Jewish attacks in recent years. What is with these people? As the late Rodney King would say, “Can’t we all just get along?”

There are many issues here to address, and I have very little time with which to address them. But one issue is, was it really antisemitism that was the main contributor to the attacker’s attack? Apparently, the 37-year-old synagogue attacker “has a long history of mental illness and hospitalizations. He has no history of like violent acts and no convictions for any crime,” according to his family.

You see, one problem in our society now is that if someone has some emotional issues, or any kind of psychological or behavioral issues, the “doctors,” hospitals and schools immediately put the person on terrible psychiatric drugs, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, SSRI antidepressants including Prozac, Zoloft and Luvox, and anti-ADHD and other drugs to “help” the person such as someone who is labeled by practitioners as “autistic,” etc. I am not saying that this attacker has been taking any of those drugs, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

As I wrote previously regarding the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and discussed in this post, those psychiatric drugs have a history of causing someone’s depression to get worse, causing suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and contributing to a person’s judgment that affects one’s ability to empathize with others as well as one’s ability to control aggressive impulses. Dr. Peter Breggin has written and spoken about these issues extensively and testified before Congressional committees on these issues.

And besides this week’s New York synagogue stabbing attack, following that there was another church shooting in Texas. Two people had been killed, but almost immediately the shooter was killed by armed citizens who shot back.

These attacks have been happening more in recent years, and many of the attackers had been taking strong psychiatric drugs. So, as I had mentioned previously, those past attackers include Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris, the South Carolina church shooter Dylan Roof, the Santa Barbara college shooter Elliot Rodger, the Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza, the Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes, and the Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had all been taking those damn psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

I stopped trying to find out if any of the more recent mass killers had been taking those psychiatric drugs. This older article and this one list several more earlier examples of mass killers who had been taking psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

So, as I have mentioned in my previous posts, if someone wanted to stop taking the psychiatric drugs, to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms see Dr. Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.

The reason why many people don’t know about those aspects of recent mass killings is that mainstream news outlets get a lot of their advertising revenues from the pharmaceutical companies. With these issues and other issues such as the nationwide blackout on the truth about the FBI and CIA’s illegally going after the Trump campaign and administration, we have seen just how dishonest and corrupt the mainstream news media really are. They are a disgrace.

So anyway, rather than frothing at the mouth over “hate” in society, perhaps the New York governor Andrew Cuomo ought to discuss why so many recent mass killers had been shown to be taking psychiatric drugs which no doubt have been contributing to their judgments and affecting their sense of empathy and conscience (or lack thereof).

Now, that’s the first issue involved here. Another issue is what is going on with the “black community” that is causing so much hate directed toward Jews? Again, obviously not all black people hate Jews. And not all the anti-Jewish attacks in New York had been committed by black people, but that has been common now. Robert Wenzel addressed this issue, and points out the possible influence that the “Nation of Islam” might have on certain communities, and particularly on the college campuses. The “Nation of Islam” is the organization led by Louis Farrakhan, a popular but anti-Jewish “minister.”

And finally, these incidents, including the anti-Jewish attacks in New York and elsewhere, show that the short-sighted, emotion-driven calls for more gun control are counter-productive. Will we see calls for “knife control” now? They have had that in the land of idiocy, England, for a while now.

Regarding these issues, there is an important organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). On their About page, they write:

Three primary goals drive the Washington-based human-rights group Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):

Destroy so-called “gun control” (code words for disarming innocent people).

Expose the misguided notions that lead people to seek out so-called “gun control”.

Encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for all citizens. The Second Amendment is the “Guardian” of the Bill of Rights.

And,

JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs (or none) who share a common goal of opposing and reversing potentially deadly victim disarmament policies. You don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO; you just have to love freedom.

Aaron Zelman, a proud Jew, initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. He was appalled that so many Jewish politicians and influential Jewish public officials and spokespeople actually advocated citizen disarmament. He said it many a time: “Jews should be the last people on Earth to support ‘gun control’. See: An Interview With Aaron Zelman

As JPFO expanded its research into gun laws and the results of their enactments, it became blatantly obvious that so-called “gun control” had played a fundamental role in all the major genocides of the 20 th Century … not just the Holocaust. See: The Genocide Chart

So-called “gun control” is a deadly lie. Firearms registration lists lead governments-gone-bad straight to gun owners. Licensing and registration of guns has resulted in outright banning and confiscation over the last one hundred years of world history. The bloody results of these mass citizen disarmaments have been horrific.

Based on this insight, JPFO broke new ground with the award-winning documentary Innocents Betrayed. In this powerful film, viewers learn the dirty secret of “gun control”: how governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then murdered them ruthlessly. Fifty eight minutes of hard-hitting facts that leave viewers dazed.

So that is what they have to say about that. And I agree with them 1,000%.

And like most of the people on the Left, New York Gov. Cuomo is also big on gun control. He, along with Dianne Feinstein, Cory Schnooker and the rest of them want to disarm innocent people and make them defenseless to the criminal aggression of others.

And I wonder if Cuomo is now going to suggest “knife control.” Is he also going to suggest “hate control” such as with more censorship of the Internet and other places of speech and expression?

Trump Signs Executive Order Pandering to Jewish Voters and Israel

So now we hear that Donald Trump has signed an executive order determining what “anti-Semitism” is, like including criticism of Israel or Judaism, and punishing such speech as thought crimes by denying federal funds to colleges and schools or other programs shown to allow or tolerate “anti-Semitism” on campus.

As Kelley Vlahos at The American Conservative writes,”What it really will do is put a chill on speech, as skittish administrations shut down protests, screen speakers, and monitor classrooms for unsanctioned criticisms against Israel.” Yep.

Alan Dershowitz, otherwise known as “Mr. Freedom of Speech” and “Mr. First Amendment,” supports this and was there at the Trump Order-signing ceremony. Oh well. There goes that one. So much for Alan Dershowitless. He used to say that a worse alternative to bad speech is no speech — but now, when it comes to Israel he is for silencing others with whom he disagrees. May we now call him “Mr. Censorship”?

But this should be a further example why we need to:

1. Abolish all government redistribution of wealth schemes altogether. No one should receive funds that were taken involuntarily from others. That’s stealing. (Abolish the income tax, too.)

2. Get the government out of education. Abolish the federal Department of Education. Total separation of education and State in a free society.

3. Repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all its subsequent Amendments, or strike any parts that apply to privately owned property. Only the government may not “discriminate” against people based on religion, national origin, sex or race. It should not apply to people in their private associations or economic matters. Otherwise, it is a thought crimes act. This current executive order imposed by the orange fascist is based on Title VI of the Act.

Unfortunately, politicians pander to a very sensitive spot in American politics: support for Israel. Many politicians tremble at the thought of not being seen as a big supporter of Israel, so they overdo it. (See Rand Paul and his “Stand with Israel Act.” Pander, pander, pander, Rand.)

And then there are the True Believers, the zealous Christian Zionists like George W. Bush, Mike Pompeo, and our current vice president Mike Pence who support Israel and “the Jews” mainly because the zealots believe in “End Times,” and the “Great Tribulation,” the “Rapture,” and all that icky stuff. They only support “the Jews” because they are looking forward to those End Times when, in order for Jews to be saved they will convert to Christianity and become believers in Jesus Christ as The Savior. Or else, they won’t be saved.

But regarding Trump’s fascist threats against colleges and schools, academic institutions used to be places encouraging debates from all perspectives, the expression of any ideas, including uncommon, dissenting and even abhorrent ideas. But as we know now, the political correctness and intolerance give us silencing of uncommon, dissenting and supposedly abhorrent ideas. Apparently believing that there are only two genders is now an abhorrent idea. Some people including the moron President think that criticizing Israel is an abhorrent idea, no matter what its government does.

But if you criticize Israel now, you are an “anti-Semite” (or a “self-hating Jew” in my case). There are many sound reasons to criticize Israel, just as there are many sound reasons to criticize the United State of Amerika. I do the latter all the time here. Why is Israel so special? Why is Israel such a snowflake that it can’t endure some critical opinions?

I personally am not a Zionist, because I am not a collectivist and don’t believe in group identity politics. That is what Israel is all about. Zionism is a political movement for over 100 years encouraging the world’s Jews to move to that one location, based on the Bible and Biblical scriptures. It isn’t based on living a better life, because if it were then Jews should be encouraged to live in the United State of Amerika. Israel is a socialist nation based on government central planning, and a militarist police state, much more than the U.S. Imagine TSA and U.S. border control “your papers please” but not just in the airports or on the border, but throughout the whole country.

And why must there be a “Jewish State”? Should there be a Christian state? An Islamic state? Or an atheist state? Duh.

People should live where they want to live, where they feel most comfortable, where it’s economically or culturally best for them, and so on. If they want to live in some kind of neighborhood covenant based on Judaism, then do that. But to seize an entire territory, which is what the British Empire, the U.S. and other Western governments and their militaries did during the 20th Century, and have it be an artificial country based on a particular religion at the expense of people who hold different religious views, then we have not only a theocracy but an entire country that’s based on the negation of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

But we’re not allowed to say those things or give those opinions. People dare not consider those concepts or those ideas of dissent from the usual dogma they’ve been fed since their early childhoods.

So, unlike Israel where there is no Constitution or Bill of Rights or a First Amendment protecting freedom of speech, in the United State we DO have those things. And we can say whatever we want about the bureaucrats and criminals of the U.S. government (sorry for the redundancy), just as we can say what we want about Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and worse, the U.K.

Even here in Amerika, we can say what we want about religions. Including Judaism. That’s not “hate speech,” or “discrimination.” I can say that Judaism and Christianity are not my thing, even though I consider myself Jewish because I was raised in a Jewish family. But I don’t believe in a lot of the Biblical teachings. I think that Judaism is, like Christianity, a very authoritarian religion. But then, I can’t think of a religion that is not authoritarian. And I can criticize it for that reason if I want to.

Just like the conservatives and talk radio personalities we hear are constantly criticizing Islam, another extremely authoritarian religion. Right?

Speaking of authoritarians, the Orange One is extremely authoritarian in his imposing an executive order to stifle freedom of speech on college campuses in the name of pandering to Israel and Jewish voters.

Abolish Government Schools

It is usually informative to hear Sean Hannity and others on the radio with the other side of the story that the mainstream media won’t give us, especially in the Democrats’ and national security state’s crusade to get rid of Donald Trump. But these same talk radio sheeple love the national security state, They love police and military, and armed and uniformed goons.They are authoritarians and believe in “America First” and not Freedom First, in my view. So if the political parties were in the reverse, I don’t believe they would be telling us about FISA abuses and so forth. And the conservatives, by the way, LOVE the government schools.

Anyway, it looks like the Democrats are going to “impeach” Donald Trump, and for made-up things promoted by all the invited guests, those career government parasites at the hearings. But the Democrats will not be impeaching Trump for his continuing to authorize drone strikes that do nothing but kill innocent civilians overseas or his criminally keeping Gitmo open, etc. Nope. Democrats don’t care about those things.

The Democrats don’t care about civil liberties or due process, as we have seen from their Mueller fiasco and this impeachment farce. And they don’t care about freedom of speech either. No, they care about someone saying or tweeting rude or obnoxious things, and they are obsessed with abortion.

And the apparatchiks of the national security state want to get rid of Trump because he refuses to be their puppet (or he’s trying not to be).

And they all know that whoever their nominee is in 2020, s/he will not beat The Donald. In theory, it would be easier to beat Mike Pence, but the Democrats’ and spooks’ 3-year-long crusade of political harassment and abusing the legal and legislative process will fail anyway.

What’s really disappointing on a daily basis is hearing all these “news” deliverers and “analysts” in the media, their repeating what the impeachment hearing witnesses are saying, that Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President was a “quid pro quo,” despite the law requiring Trump to make sure corruption in a foreign aid recipient country is being addressed before receiving the aid, and despite the corruption with Joe Biden and Junior Biden.

The “news” media continuously call the stuff about the Bidens, Ukraine and the 2016 election “debunked conspiracy theories” like those media buffoons are programmed robots. So many people in the media do not think or act independently, they do little or no actual investigative research, and/or are just plain dumb people. Although there are some who aren’t so dumb, and they have seen plenty of actual information that refutes the official narrative, but they obediently and dishonestly carry on the Hate-Trump Crusade.

I think that most of those in the media repeating the official narrative are doing so out of laziness, obedience to authority, and because they have been brainwashed by their upbringings and government schooling to take the word of officials with a (D) after their name.

And I am not a Trump supporter as regular readers (if any still exist) know. If you are disillusioned with Democrats now but don’t like the Rethuglicans, you might consider supporting Jacob Hornberger in 2020. Just thought I’d throw that in there.

Now, what else has been in the news? The American Psychological Association style guide now endorses or requires using “they” as a replacement for he, him, she, her, etc., as a singular pronoun, according to the College Fix, even though “they” is a plural pronoun. The reason for this idiocy is to be more “inclusive” and “affirming,” and for authors to “avoid perpetuating prejudicial beliefs or demeaning attitudes in their writing.”

Harvard University was one of the first places of higher “education” to implement these changes, regardless of the likelihood that an “educational” institution’s use of incorrect grammar will cause such writers or speakers to leave a less literate impression on others. So, not good for job-seekers, in my view.

Maybe this is a part of the larger contributor to why so many people in the “news” media are themselves illiterate and why they believe everything that government bureaucrats tell them, no?

You see, there really are people who are so brainwashed now that they believe using “he” or “she” in writing is “demeaning” or “non-inclusive.” Most of the people who believe those things are the same kinds of people as described above, Democrats, who also don’t believe in freedom of speech and due process. And I thought Rethugs were bad.

Using “they” as a singular pronoun is bad because it is incorrect grammar. If people really are offended by it, then they, including those members of the American Psychological Association, need some kind of counseling. Talk about extremely insecure, neurotic sheeple! (And the American Psychiatric Association as well! They’re sick dudes, in my view.)

There’s a whole Wikipedia page devoted to “Singular they.” Doh!

Speaking of the formerly first-rate Harvard, another article by the College Fix tells us about Harvard hosting “Anal Sex 101” and “Oral Sex 101” workshops.

This sex obsession and perversion in our society is another contributor to the decline in literacy and thinking abilities in Harvard professors and their students, and among people in the “news” media, and escapees from the government schools.

According the the College Fix, “On-campus sponsors include Queer Students and Allies, Harvard College Women’s Center, Office of BGLTQ Student Life, Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, Harvard College Reproductive Justice Action and several other campus groups.”

“Reproductive Justice Action”? What is “reproductive justice”? (Making sure that Roe v Wade isn’t overturned? Killing their offspring as a “rite of passage” is these deranged SJW’s main purpose in life!)

The article quotes Mary Eberstadt, author of Primal Screams: How the Sexual Revolution Created Identity Politics: “It’s especially ironic that Sex Week gets Harvard’s imprimatur even as some of the men of #MeToo are appearing in courts. Sex Week promotes the same deformed view of the human person that led such men to harassment and assault in the first place: one dominated by pornographic narratives according to which human beings are always and everywhere available for any sexual permutation, no matter how problematic to their psyches or inimical to their health.”

We live in a perverted, sick society now. Can we reverse this? This is giving me a headache, quite frankly.

What else is in the news? Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to Salvation Army and other Christian-oriented charities. Obviously because of the loud screaming by the LGBT activists, who call the restaurant’s products “hate chicken.”

I think that “social justice” activists have decided to redefine the word “hate,” just as they are mangling singular and plural pronouns. And they have no clue as to what “quid pro quo” really means!

The Christian haters claim to be “anti-hate”? I. Don’t. Think. So.

I think that many of the LGBT activists are brainwashed. There’s no other explanation why they act this way. The same goes for the people in CONgress wasting time and money on a farce impeachment. They are brainwashed apparatchiks. Thanks to government schools.

And talk about totalitarian-minded fascists, these activists. Now we have LGBT activists demanding that others accept and “affirm” their ways of life! Others must accept the lunacy of transgender or multi-genders, or else the activists will make sure you get fired from your job, that you are deplatformed, that you are dropped from your credit card company, etc. They mean business, these activists.

Worse, the government schools are now requiring that little kids become activists for the government teachers and bureaucrats’ social causes, including the kooky ones noted above. According to Town Hall, 3rd graders will learn “how we can be agents of communal, social, political, and environmental change.” But don’t learn math, because that’s racist.

Abolishing government schools is really the only answer to all this crap, from the political ills to the social ills. That means no more local school committees, no more local superintendents of schools, no more crazy government-imposed curricula. Yes, this privatization and de-monopolization of education is necessary.

Unfortunately, the conservatives love government schools as a means to force their own repressive and authoritarian social agenda down the throats of kids. And unless the conservatives change their tune in their sheepish acceptance of government schools, then I think the leftists really will win.

The “Fourth Estate” Are Now Slaves of Crazed U.S. Government Psychopaths

Paul Craig Roberts says the end of accountable government is close at hand. And he’s right. Roberts observes that the CIA has so much control over the “news” media and government-approved explanations of events that most of the mainstream news media is a farce.

And,

What is astonishing about the CIA’s destruction of Julian Assange is the silence of American law schools and bar associations, the silence of universities, the absence of student and labor union protests, the absence of any protection of Assange’s rights from courts as the last news organization willing and capable of holding governments accountable for their crimes is destroyed openly in full view of the law schools, intellectuals, bar associations, courts, and print and TV media.

The CIA’s control over explanations is as complete as the control Big Brother has in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984.And this doesn’t bother the citizens of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Europe.Only a few individuals speak out for Assange, and they, too, are demonized in turn.

In fact, I was listening to a talk radio show today, and the two co-hosts are still referring to that dreaded phone call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian president as “Trump looking to dig up dirt on a political opponent,” Joe Biden, which is not what that phone call in question was. That was what Congressman Adam Schiffty said it was, when he read his made-up version of the phone call. The White House released a transcript of the actual phone call, and it did not show that Trump was looking for “dirt” on political opponents.

The moonstream media is a puppet of the national security state, the CIA and the military. They are not the “liberal media.” What a joke that is.

Also today Gary Barnett writes that the real news is what is not in the news. He points out that we have not been hearing anything about the Jeffrey Epstein case, or about what the U.S. government is doing to Julian Assange. He also notes the silence of non-government-approved news regarding 9/11 for the past 18 years.

I don’t know if it’s the news editors and news radio and TV producers who take direct orders from the Pentacon and the CIA, or they are so well trained by the time they get their high-up news-control jobs those editors and producers just censor based on what they have been conditioned to believe the government would approve. The control the U.S. government has over “news” (i.e. propaganda) media is amazing.

When it comes to events and issues in which people contradict the official government narrative, such as 9/11, they are called “conspiracy theorists” and so on. The same thing goes for the climate issue, in which people are labeled “deniers” by the obedient closed-minded crusaders who believe that science is “settled.” In fact, those aforementioned liberal talk radio people I heard today also frequently use the phrase, “debunked conspiracy theory” when it comes to the Russiagate or now the Ukrainegate issues. Are they that dumb? Or are they just extremely dishonest anti-truth propagandists?

And finally, Ben Norton writes about about journalist Max Blumenthal being arrested by Warshington’s anti-freedom of the press gestapo, as relates to his political reporting on Venezuela. (Kevin Gosztola has an article on that too.) Blumenthal had been exposing the Venezuelan opposition crackpots who are supported by regime-change fanatics in Warshington.

I think the “national security” (sic) state in Warshington, the moonstream media, those statists and parasites inside the beltway, they are very sick and deranged people. Liars, propagandists, and apparatchiks. They are sick.
