GUEST POST: What Rats Say About America

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following article was submitted to us by Mr. Brett Redmayne-Titley, a journalist/writer. You can follow Brett’s work at his archival web site Occupeyes.  

Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” Aristotle

wtfAmericans physiologically, metaphorically, and socially are similar to the laboratory rat. Both tolerate similar repressive environments while confined to a maze. Neither can escape to find freedom. Unlike the rat, Americans accept their condition. Acquiescing without struggle to a life of controlled stimulation, manipulated by all manner of drugs, tests, and calisthenics they care not. In a recent study at the University of California/ Los Angeles rats show the reason for America’s irrational disinterest in self-preservation.

Across the world daily demonstrative resistance to the American empire increases. Americans offer no resistance at all. Social, economic, and political problems in the USA mirror those of an empire afflicted world, yet Americans would rather chew off their tails than find the energy to extricate themselves from their maze. Across the country examples of paltry public resistance abound. Why are Americans the only world example of this strange domestic malady; clinical apathy?

The cause of this pervasive apathy seems to be clear in results from the UCLA study.

Dr. Aaron Blaisdell, a professor of psychology at the UCLA College of Letters and Science and a member ofUCLA’s Brain Research Institute, used ratstodetermine if a diet of poor quality processed foods resulted directly in obesity or if the initial result was fatigue.

Dr. Blaisdell’s team placed thirty-two female rats on one of two diets for six months. The first, a standard rat’s diet, consisted of relatively unprocessed foods like ground corn and fish meal. As a substitute for a junk food diet the second Americanized group received highly processed food of lower quality that included substantially more sugar.

One diet led to obesity, the other didn’t,” said Blaisdell as quoted in UCLA’s, “ Newsroom.”(1)

Our data suggest that diet-induced obesity is a cause, rather than an effect, of laziness.” continued Blaisdell. “Either the highly processed diet causes fatigue or the diet causes obesity, which causes fatigue. These findings suggest that a pattern of consuming junk food… is responsible for obesity and cognitive impairments.

The rats were given a task in which they were required to press a lever to receive a food or water reward. The rats on the junk food diet demonstrated impaired performance, taking substantially longer breaks than the lean rats before returning to the task. In a 30-minute session, the overweight rats became lazy due to their increasing obesity, taking breaks that were nearly twice as long as clean rats.

The researchers also found that the rats on the junk food diet grew large numbers of tumors throughout their bodies. Those on the more nutritious diet had fewer and smaller tumors that were not as widespread.

Dr. Blaisdell’s studying clearly indicates that junk food, while causing obesity, subsequently causes laziness and fatigue. The political cousin of these two symptoms is apathy.

America leads the world in obesity and is spreading this capitalist disease. The more terminal disease for Americans is apathy. Causing America to lack interest in its own increasing internal peril, American processed junk food has become the most effective US government weapon for controlling its own population. Examples of irrational American apathy are obvious.

In dozens of countries rebellion by their populations is growing despite brutal American inspired crackdowns. As the brutal force of the American Empire kills scores daily, resistance is not futile. It is daily. This is not the case in the American homeland.

Canada and Mexico produced protests of over one million people. The Montreal student protests quickly grew from 100,000 to more than one million as their public responded to Canada’s attempted brutal reaction combined with new draconian laws.

In Mexico City protesters hit the one million mark within minutes of the announcement of the most recent presidential election results declaring president-elect, Enrique Pena Nieto, the victor. Thanks to American made Diebold electronic voting machines, the result had been rigged. Everybody knew it. They were mad as hell. They went to the streets.

At the 2012 Democratic national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina the government expected trouble. Uncle Sam knew his people also had good reason to take to the streets. After four years of Pres. Obama high unemployment, a growing authoritarian state, endemic corruption in banks, business, government, and sports had become the American lifestyle. Taking no chances the federal government provided Charlotte $50 million, and added $50 million, to defend Pres. Obama from, “the people.” This funding produced a truly awe-inspiring showcase of America’s domestic authoritarian arsenal. The American Gov’t was ready to take on America’s best shot at resisting the new definition of democracy.

Anyone coming to Charlotte found that walking the streets was a laboratory experiment in itself. The maze was there, consisting of miles of continuous sixteen foot high metal, crowd-proof, fencing along the entire preselected boulevards. Hordes of cops funneled protesters into the maze at every intersection while hundreds more, all dressed in full riot gear, kept the loonies on the path. New vehicles were everywhere from ATVs and MRAPS, to refrigerated trucks and golf carts. Dozens of brand new “Police” mountain bikes and moto-cross bikes stood in rows, or under fat cops who sat watching menacingly. No less than four helicopters were in the air at all times. Police cars, state, federal, and local were everywhere. CIA had commandeered a local junior college and US Army troops maintained defenses. That was just the front lines.

National Guard personnel, some sitting on tanks and armored vehicles, stared back from behind fences and gates. Row upon row of street cops had come from everywhere across America to defend their president. Shoulder badges revealed police department insignia from as far away as Austin Texas, Chicago Illinois, New York City, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The cops need not have bothered.

The largest protest of the six-day event was a paltry 2000 people. Almost all other protests numbered no more than three hundred. The protesters were always outnumbered by the cops and the press. Considering Charlotte has over 150 million Americans within a five hundred mile drive, why such a paltry, ineffective, impotent turnout throughout the six day event? Why?

We may have found a cure for most evils; but we have found no remedy for the worst of them all, the apathy of human beings.”-Helen Keller

Dr. Blaisdell’s rats are exposing the fundamental of this malady. The toxic combination of engineered food and endemic apathy is causing a sickness infecting Americans. Despair.

America’s diet is factually the worst in the world. GMO ingredients are in eighty-five percent of all processed foods. In December 2013, Professor Irina Ermakova, vice president of Russia’s National Association for Genetic Safety, called for a 10-year ban on GMO foods. Ermakova conducted GMO rat-feeding tests that showed alarming results, including extreme mortality rates. “It is necessary to ban GMO, to impose a moratorium for 10 years. It has been proved that not only in Russia, but also in many other countries in the world, GMO is dangerous.’ he concluded.

In Volgograd on April 5, 2014, Russian Prime Minister Medvedev, in support of a Russian ban on GMOs, stated succinctly, “If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food.” China, France and the United Kingdom have similar bans.

Choosing willful ignorance, GMO labeling laws have been defeated in state referendums, so Americans have voted not to know that food-borne poison is indeed contained in the what they eat. This, too, seems to reenforce Dr. Blaisdell’s findings of continuing American mental decline.

As reported by William Engdahl,(2) in a study on the toxicity of GMO plants associated with the plant killer, “ Round Up”, Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff , have found more confirmations. Their review concluded, in regard to glyphosate, the main active component of Roundup herbicide, that, “Residues (of glyphosate) are found in the main foods of the Western diet.”

Their conclusion is that Roundup, hence glyphosate, is found in the main foods Americans eat such as sugar, corn, soy and wheat. All are found in processed foods. Its damaging effects accumulate slowly but consumers do not realize this until it is too late.

Samsel and Seneff continue,“[M]any of the health problems that appear to be associated with a Western diet could be …attributed to glyphosate. These include digestive issues, obesity, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, Parkinson’s disease, liver diseases and cancer, among others. We believe that glyphosate may be the most significant environmental toxin.”

Economically bankrupt America has families with both Mom and Dad working, the kids in daycare, and the home-cooked family meal a relic of an American Dream long gone. Replaced with fast processed food the ongoing degradation of the American mind, applied to Dr. Blaisdell’s laboratory rats, shows that American apathy is directly proportional to their diet.

A failing mind combined with a failing educational system is an authoritarian regime’s utopia.

Here lies the insidious, more dramatic and sinister result of American apathy. It is one thing for Americans to willfully allow themselves and their nation to go to the gallows of history. They continue to vote for their own Armageddon. If Americans are content to be lead down the path of a faux two-party system of Gov’t let them have what they wish. Once it is too late, their future will be the degradation of Greece and Cyprus present.

So suffers the fool.

But in allowing America to take their souls these same apathetic Americans willfully allow their Gov’t to rob the livelihood and futures of the remaining world.

When considered carefully apathy, American apathy is a crime. A crime against humanity. The checks and balances of humanity on Empire are gone in America. Implicitly Americans are complicit in the further destruction of the world. When the dust of an oncoming, rampaging history have settled over the folly of American empire, guilt for the accumulated horrors of its historical legacy will sit squarely on its people’s heads, as much as their obviously treasonous politician’s.

Indeed. The laboratory rat continues to be smarter than her Americanized counterpart. The rat desires freedom. He will bite his master.

Under the bright laboratory lights of oppression the lab rat will do what Americans no longer have the mental ability to do. The rat, ever more desperate, will find a way to escape. Finding the will and the courage, the rat rises-up on his two hind legs, peers out over the top of the maze, and sees the obvious way out.

America has no such remaining instinct.

Why Does Everyone Think the Market Will Crash in January 2014?

In conspiracy circles, there is a lot of fingers being pointed to early 2014 as a moment that everyone has long feared…the next stock market crash.  The idea behind this date in particular revolves around the idea of a bubble.  To make a long story short, the bubble means that we are being led to believe that things are going well, but really, a whole lot of bad news is being swept under the rug.  January 2014, according to some wannabe experts and theorists, is the date in which the rug simply can’t handle anymore things to cover up and that’s when the metaphoric bubble bursts.

While the doomsday theories are pretty easy to come by on the Internet, few people take the time to try to visually articulate just how the bubble was created and why it has now expanded to the breaking point.  The following video is not going to be airing on any mainstream media source now (or ever for that matter), but the fellow that created the video obviously is passionate about this and shows some interesting information that does help us to understand why there is so much consternation about this date.

Will it happen?  We don’t know, and it’s quite possible that no one out there really does.  Should you start stockpiling for a financial apocalypse?  Well, at the very least, if you believe in the concept of the bubble, well, it has to burst some time.  Even if it’s not January, it can only keep going so far, so if you are convinced that the crash is inevitable, this is as good a time as any to take action.

50th Anniversary of JFK Assassination — How the Media and Government is Using This Occasion to Smear Conspiracy Theorists Some More

This article is being written on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.  All over America, different organizations are recognizing this in some form or fashion, and Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton even stopped by his grave to commemorate the occasion.  At Common Sense Conspiracy, we have plenty of articles stocked up on all things JFK, but on this particular day, we aren’t going to spend a lot of time mulling over the most well-known conspiracy theory of all time.  What we want to do is continue to spread our message of how the government spreads disinformation and tries to persuade the average American citizen to believe something other than the truth.

Like anything else in a capitalist society, there have been plenty of attempts to cash in on the anniversary.  There have been tons of documentary specials all over broadcast television detailing the events leading up to that tragic day, as well as thorough analysis of the infamous Zuprader film frame by frame.  However, if you turned on any mainstream media source today, there was one common theme through all of them that is the focus of our attention today.

Whatever political affiliation the news organization might have, it didn’t matter on this one.  Every major mainstream news source had some sort of article talking about “conspiracy theorists” like they are aliens from outer space.  There were all kinds of catchy titles and slogans.  “Why are JFK Conspiracy Theories So Attractive?” read one.  “The Appeal of the JFK Assassination to Conspiracy Theorists” read another.  It goes on and on.

What are they trying to do?  Are they seriously trying to convince us that there was nothing at all to be concerned about on that day?  Not at all.  The government and its puppet, the mainstream media, have long ago given up on trying to actually convince anyone of anything about the events leading up to the Kennedy assassination.  However, they are opportunists, and they never miss a chance to try to remind everyone that conspiracy theorists are crazy, damaged people that should never be listened to.  They don’t miss a chance to remind Americans everywhere that conspiracy theorists are the “ambulance chasers” of politics and history, always looking for a great story of paranoia to attach to any major event.

It works.  The average American reads these stories, goes “those crazy kooks,” as they sip on their morning coffee, and then go on about their work day.  Slowly but surely, though, the term “conspiracy theory” becomes a synonym to crazy, ill-advised, and malicious.

So, Common Sense Conspiracy wants every one of our readers to know for sure that there is no reason to hide in the shadows.  Sure, there are crazy conspiracy theorists.  But the government and mainstream media want so badly to brand everyone of them as that, when the truth is that they only represent a very small segment of an ever-increasing population of people that just don’t believe that every little thing that is put on their spoon should be taken down without question.

jfk-limoQuestioning the official story of things doesn’t make you crazy.  After all, the same people that dismiss conspiracy theorists as being nutcases continue to allow proven time and time again liars and thieves to manage their affairs at the top of the leadership of our country.  The same people that think all conspiracy theorists wear aluminum hats are the same ones that were shocked and appalled to find out that the United States government was spying on the American people for no good reason at all on an alarmingly frequent basis.  And then, what did the mainstream news sources say?  Oh, well, if you throw shots in the dark all the time, you’re bound to hit sooner or later.  So, they got one right.

Whatever you believe about those fateful events on November 22, 1963, we just want you to know that it is all the more important on November 22, 2013 that we continue to search for the truth, not just about John F. Kennedy, but about our everyday lives under a system of government that has long ago succumbed to an intricate web of corruption, abuse of power, and routine consumption of personal liberties.  So, as we remember that day, let’s make sure that JFK’s assassination does not go purposeless.  After all, an overwhelming majority  of American citizens do indeed believe that there is more to the story than the government would have us believe, making the JFK assassination easily the most widely believed conspiracy theory of all time.

So, who’s crazy?  Everyone that’s not on the government’s side?

That’s a lot of crazy people, and the list is growing each and every day.

President Obama and Half-Brother Deemed Criminal Terrorists By Egyptian Court

There is a growing number of alternative news sources reporting that President Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, whom most of you probably had no idea exists, has been charged with all sorts of atrocities in Egypt.  Malik is widely thought to be plugged in with the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that President Obama supported (go figure, huh?) and then was cast out of Egypt and declared a terrorist organization (after the United States supplied them with millions of dollars, of course).

Well, those revelations might have done a little bit to tarnish the Obama family name, but now, new reports are going a step farther, saying that President Obama himself has now been officially charged as a criminal terrorist by a filing in Egypt.

What does it all mean?  Not a whole lot.  President Obama isn’t going to be held before any sort of international court anytime soon, most likely never.  And, yes, you or I could file papers in some of these court systems overseas claiming any sort of outlandish things about anyone we choose.  It doesn’t mean that it’s true by anyone’s definition.  Is it interesting?   Hell yeah.  Is there reason to look a little deeper into this strange Obama family kinship?  Absolutely.

But what should we really take away from this?  Just who is Malik Obama, and if he really exists and does the things that they say he does, what kind of massive conspiracy could be at work that we never once heard him mentioned in either election campaign?  Don’t you think it just a tad strange that neither Mitt Romney nor John McCain nor the Republican Party as a whole saw fit to call Obama out for his half-brother being a near terror mastermind?

So, the charges are interesting, but what is most interesting is Malik Obama…the man…myth or legend?

What Does the Number 231134421 Mean?

A mysterious YouTube video with some disturbing imagery leaves us with this number and an ominous warning to “Be Ready.”  People all over the world are flocking to this video, wondering what it all means.  Well, first we show you the video:

The video is strange enough, but another YouTube user has really broken this down, and the slowed down version with explanation is even more menacing:

So, what do you think? Is this a hoax or ploy to get a lot of attention? Or is this a true warning that yet another horrible event is being planned on the world stage? And if so, will it come through water? Could we see another massive tsunami? Katrina-like hurricane? Or could it signify water a different way, as in the water supply?
All we can say is the video is fascinating, and whatever the case might be, it never hurts to “Be Ready.”

Russell Brand Wants a Revolution — And We Agree With Him

Well, if you had told us five days ago that comedian Russell Brand would be spreading the message that we do here each and every day at Common Sense Conspiracy, we would have said you were nuts.  Turns out that Russell’s statement calling for a “revolution” of sorts is exactly our message.

While Russell may not be “qualified” to make these statements, the ones that are “qualified” in Washington sure don’t seem to be the answer, so perhaps unqualified should be just the candidate we are all looking for.

The best part of this inspiring tirade by Brand is when the interviewer tries to play a card that we hear all too often here at this site… but if you don’t vote, you can’t say anything.

What a load of…what would Russell say?  Rubbish.

The idea that if you don’t vote, you have no say in what happens in anything is ludicrous.  Think about it for a second.  If there is no viable candidate to vote for, why should you vote?  Just so you can argue that you voted in a debate.  No, no option means no vote, and unfortunately, that has been the case for many, many years now.

To vote for one of two choices when both represent nothing but more corruption is to vote to keep things the same, and in fact, prolong it for years to come.

Why do you think we have all these “Rock the Vote” campaigns each election year with a steady stream of celebrity personalities encouraging us to get out and vote.  Think they just want us to embrace our civil liberties, the same damn ones they are methodically taking away?  No, of course not.   They do want us to get out and vote because it matters.  Not because our vote really counts, but because if we are all out voting from the lesser of two evils, we have once again cast our vote for this system to remain intact.  See, from the government’s standpoint (and when we say government, we don’t mean Republicans or Democrats, we mean the real powers-that-be, the ones that control what is really going to happen), if we are all divided by a faux two-party political system, we can never muster enough people to actually make a difference in reality.

World Bank Strategy in Coming Years — Income Redistribution on a Massive Global Scale

Well, the title says it all.  A good, informative report about what the World Bank intends to do and just how they might have the stroke to pull it off.  Also, what it means for the rest of us that fit in that now global middle class, otherwise known as rich people.
