How To Make Saltpeter

Saltpeter is the common name for potassium nitrate (KNO3). Using urine is an old school method for manufacturing saltpeter. To make saltpeter from urine you need only a couple of ingredients. Urine and organic matter such as straw, straw being nothing more than cut grass. However, as you can guess it isn't as simple as just mixing urine and grass. No, this is a long long process that takes months.

How Harley and Davidson Came Together to Create Motorcycle Magic

To motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere, the name Harley-Davidson is a legend. The brand has long been known as a producer of some of the best motorcycles on the road, but how did the company get its start?

The men behind the company were William Harley and three Davidson brothers, Arthur, Walter, and William. Their dream began back in the late 1800s, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when the men were still kids living on Ninth Street, and their families were neighbors.

Arthur Davidson and William Harley were of similar age and interests, and their nearly inevitable friendship formed early and lasted their entire lives.

The Harpe Brothers Terrorized The Great Frontier And Became America’s First Serial Killers

Their violence knew no bounds. Thomas Lankford, A man who once tried to help them, was robbed and murdered by tomahawk for his efforts, a crime for which the men were arrested in Hustonville, Kentucky on Christmas Day, 1798. Always cunning and tenacious, the men soon escaped from jail just a few months later and continued their tirade. As local folks began to take note of the Harpes and their reign of terror, a posse was assembled by “Devil Joe” Ballenger and a bounty placed on their heads.

Outrage after British Museum director says theft of Parthenon Marbles was a ‘creative act’

The British Museum is making headlines again after its director Hartwig Fischer sparked backlash for suggesting that the removal of the Elgin Marbles from Greece in the 1800s was a “creative act” and that they won’t be returned.

In an interview with the Greek daily Ta Nea, Fischer admitted that while you could be “saddened” by the fact that the famous marbles had been removed from their original environment, “this shifting is also a creative act.”

Fischer rejected the idea that Greece was the rightful owner of the Elgin Marbles, saying that the objects in the British Museum's collection “are owned by the museum’s commissioners,” and said perhaps Britain could give them to Greece on “loan” — but only if Athens recognized the museum’s ownership of them.

Happy birthday Robert E. Lee

During a tour through the South in 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt told the aged Confederate veterans in Richmond, Virginia, “Here I greet you in the shadow of the statue of your commander, General Robert E. Lee. You and he left us memories which are part of the memories bequeathed to the entire nation by all the Americans who fought in the War Between the States.”

Saturday January 19, 2019, is the 212th birthday of Robert E. Lee.

Robert E. Lee, a man whose military tactics have been studied worldwide, was an American soldier, Educator, Christian gentlemen, husband and father.

Wyatt Earp in Hollywood

In a letter, written in December 1928, the 80-year-old frontiersman Wyatt Earp opined that perhaps “my health will be back to normal when this story business is all done with.”

He was wrong twice.

Less than a month later, Wyatt was dead, and his legend was on the cusp of exploding. Some outlaws were about to become very rich from his story, but Wyatt never made a dime on any of it. This is the story of how that happened.

Face of equality, or an encounter with bruising reality? Woman contestant brutally beaten by a male rival in shocking SAS: Who Dares Wins boxing match

Women do not belong in the military Period!

The decision to allow women into all parts of the military was widely hailed as a victory for female equality.
But TV viewers are likely to be shocked tonight when they see a woman being badly beaten by a male contestant on Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The incident will raise further questions about how appropriate it is to recruit women alongside men as frontline soldiers.

This blending of distinct cooking styles has resulted in the creation of some delectable specialties that speak "aloha" with a French accent, ranging from fresh seafood dishes to inventive and delectable pastries.

While most Americans thought they wouldn't be affected by the partial government shutdown, anyone with a federal tax refund coming to them will have to wait until the stalemate is over, according to the Wall Street Journal.

While most Americans thought they wouldn't be affected by the partial government shutdown, anyone with a federal tax refund coming to them will have to wait until the stalemate is over, according to the Wall Street Journal.

During a shutdown, the IRS can continue activities that protect government property, and the agency may bring in more workers soon to prepare for the income-tax filing season. Even during a shutdown, the agency still processes some tax returns that include payments, keeps computer systems running and continues criminal investigations. But the IRS generally doesn’t conduct audits, respond to taxpayer questions outside the filing season or—brace yourself—pay refunds.

A shutdown that gets resolved within a few weeks would have little ultimate effect on taxpayers, but lawmakers have made little or no movement toward a deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This timing is particularly grating for those who planned to used their refund money for a specific need; but the real problem, which will cause the excrement to hit the ventilation shaft, is when the money runs out for the national food stamp program.

Fake News & Feminism - MGTOW

I'm going to take this opportunity to discuss what happened a while back when Hilary Clinton made the following statements about the so called fake news. I'm sure everyone has heard the argument from the mainstream media by now that mainstream news outlets called the presidential election for Hilary Clinton and were probably hoping that if they said it enough times then this would provide enough social proof for voters to go out there and vote for Hilary. By the way her presidential campaign cost over one billion dollars. When she lost she was throwing furniture around the room on election and getting violent with people. But when she finally calmed down she brought up the issue of fake news at a speech for Harry Reid's retirement party mentioning that the US government and Silicon Valley were going to team up and start to punish fake news sites.

Russian National Guard shows tender side with George Michael’s Last Christmas cover

Russia’s police rarely get news headlines for their artistic talents and joyful spirits, but everything is possible during Christmas. Just look at this music video for their cover of the 1984 hit by George Michael.

The chorus of the National Guard dressed in their best parade uniforms and convened at Red Square’s skating rink to present their rendition of Last Christmas. The deployment of the 120 police troops complete with their veteran leader, Gen. Maj. Victor Eliseev, seemed quite successful and enjoyed by all participants.

Incoherent Thoughts from the Yankee Capital: Papua New Guinea Looks Better and Better II

Having just returned from two weeks in the curious environs of Washington, DC, I offer a few observations on the national lunacy deposit:

The de-Christianization of the country, or at least this part of it, is almost complete. I can think of hearing the word “Christmas” only twice in two weeks of trough-inciting retail advertising.

Culture shock: We stayed with friends who for various reasons, such as being in the business, always had a television on. At home in Mexico we got rid of the lobotomy box some fifteen years ago, seeing little advantage in paying seventy dollars a month for 250 channels, none worth watching, adorned with twenty minutes an hour of stupid commercials. Coming back to this was like jumping into raw sewage. Perhaps the worst of it was the contempt for the public manifested in running the same ad twice in one commercial break, and in the loving close-ups of pizzas with dripping cheese. Buy, buy, buy.

Artists use more than 850,000 litres of paint to transform South Korean grain silo into the world’s largest outdoor mural

A dreary grain silo that was transformed into an enormous colourful artwork in South Korea has been named by Guinness World Records as the largest outdoor mural in the world.

The painting which depicts a young boy's journey into adulthood covers the outside of giant storage containers in the port city of Incheon, west of Seoul, taking up 254,975sq. ft. (23,688sq. meters).

The mural was commissioned by the city's government and port authority as part of efforts to improve the negative view of aged industrial facilities.

Putin Unveils Huge Solzhenitsyn Statue with Christian Imagery in Moscow, Urges Young to Read Him

Putin is a huge Solzhenitsyn fan, and made this very clear while the writer was alive by publicly meeting him and praising him, (pictures below), and attending his funeral.

Significantly in his speech, Putin criticized the "totalitarian system which brought suffering and severe trials to millions of people", and praised Solzhenitsyn for criticizing it and for calling for morality.

Solzhenitsyn was a staunch Christian in his later years and urged his countrymen to look to their traditional religion for moral strength.

Their victory orgasms may prove premature.

Gaza’s only grand piano, a gift from Japan, reappears in public

The only grand piano in the Gaza Strip was played in public for the first time in a decade, following a complicated international restoration effort to fix the instrument after it was nearly destroyed in an Israeli airstrike.

Some 300 fans attended the performance on Sunday, staring in awed silence as Japanese and local artists performed for them. For many, it was the first time they had ever heard a piano performed live.

“Playing this piano is feeling like playing history,” said Japanese pianist Kaoru Imahigashi. “It’s amazing. I felt the prayer of peace for many people.”

The piano’s story goes back many years, mirroring in many ways the story of Gaza.

The Japanese government donated the piano some 20 years ago, following interim peace accords between Israel and the Palestinians. An ensuing Israeli-Egyptian blockade, meant to weaken Hamas, and severe damage after a three-week war with Israel in January 2009 closed the resort altogether.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bless you, Japanese International Cooperation Agency!!

This very much reminds me of a video you should see, titled "Tuning with the Enemy."

It features Ben Treuhaft, a tuner from California, who episodically brought acoustic pianos over to Cuba, for young, amazing students to play, plus a cadre of 25 other tuners.

You would not believe the utter ration of excrement the State Department gave this guy, for a truly humanitarian act, although no charges were ever filed against him.

But as he made his journeys around the island, he had discovered that a lot of kids, playing existing pianos,could never get the sound they were supposed to out of them, because they had been eaten by termites; hence, it became his passion for getting these pianos delivered.

But talk about a champion of keyboard music,and the tough way he had to get these new pianos to these kids; bravo, and well-done, Ben!!

ISHI, THE LAST YAHI

ISHI, THE LAST YAHI begins in 1492 when there were more than ten million Native Americans in North America. By 1910, their numbers had been reduced to fewer than 300,000. In California, massacres of Indians in the 1860s and 1870s had nearly exterminated the Native peoples in the state. Therefore the sudden appearance in northern California in 1911 of Ishi, "the last wild Indian in North America," stunned the nation. For more than 40 years, Ishi had lived in hiding with a tiny band of survivors. When he walked into the white man's world, he was the last Yahi Indian alive.

Banksy brings Separation Wall to London

Internationally-renowned street artist Banksy caused a frenzy today after bringing a piece of the occupied West Bank’s Separation Wall to central London.

The Separation Wall was featured at the World Travel Market at London’s Excel event centre today, marking the first time Banksy has participated in a travel exhibition. The colossal concrete structure – daubed with an image of two cherubs trying to break through its cracks – caused a frenzy among the exhibition’s attendees, with scores of people flocking to see the iconic image.

People queued across the centre to get a glimpse of the artwork, while Banksy posters, Palestinian scarves and traditional cuisine were handed out to those waiting in line. Despite being one of the smallest stands in the Middle East hall, security struggled to contain the number of people surrounding Palestine’s stand.

Defense Department Booklet Targets Holocaust Revisionism

American military service personnel are now being told that skepticism toward the official history of Europe's Jews during World War II is not permissible. A Department of Defense booklet tells armed forces members that revisionist criticism of the Six Million extermination story is nothing less than a threat to national security. Entitled Holocaust Revisionism, the booklet instructs military personnel: "A successful fighting force is a cohesive one, one where all members have respect for each other's diversity and dignity. Holocaust revisionism has the potential to destroy that respect." ... In essence, this booklet is an arrogant effort to persuade non-Jewish Americans to regard parochial Jewish-Zionist concerns as their own. That such pernicious nonsense is published.
Note: the awesome power!

Outside In: The Trump administration’s plan to remake the Middle East

The only promise that is new about the promised peace plan is the way it will be forced on the Palestinians: no one has promised that the plan itself will be new. With Saudi Arabia and Egypt—the outside—brought onside with the promise of continued military aid despite their crimes against humanity and violations of international law and the Palestinians weakened by being silenced, economically crushed and stripped of any friends to help them, the United States and Israel are now free to attempt to impose a peace plan on the Palestinians.

Israel fines New Zealand women $18,000 for urging Lorde concert boycott

An Israel court has ordered two New Zealand women to pay damages for harming the “artistic welfare” of three Israeli teenagers after the pop star Lorde cancelled a planned performance in Tel Aviv.

Judge Mirit Fohrer ruled that Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab of New Zealand must pay damages to Israeli teenagers Shoshana Steinbach, Ayelet Wertzel and Ahuva Frogel totaling more than NZ$18,000 for writing a letter urging the singer to cancel her concert in Tel Aviv, the Jerusalem Post reports.

It is believed to be the first effective use of a 2011 Israeli law allowing civil lawsuits of anyone who encourages a boycott of Israel.

The Israeli teenagers claimed their “artistic welfare” was damaged because of the cancellation and that they suffered “damage to their good name as Israelis and Jews”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Artistic Welfare", MY ASTROLABE!!

I am hoping that the New Zealand judicial system is bright enough to realize what this truly is; an attempt to squash any artistic freedom on the part of anyone who cancels a concert in Israel, due to Palestinian human rights issues.

I sincerely hope that artists around the world will back Lourdes, with all the moral integrity possible, and never book gigs in Israel ever again, in protest of their treatment of Palestinians.

If they are asked, that they will tell event promoters that until Israel stops its wretchedly apartheid treatment of Palestinians, they cannot, in good conscience, perform in this country, ever again.

Theater artists call on Toronto, NYC & Pittsburgh venues to cancel Israeli government-sponsored performances

Henry VIII's 'Holy Grail' tapestry woven with gold and silver thread which was last seen in Windsor Castle in 1770 is found in Spain

A monumental tapestry that cost a king's ransom when Henry VIII commissioned it in the 16th century has been discovered in Spain. It was long ago assumed to have been destroyed.

As a masterpiece woven with gold and silver thread, it was the ultimate show of wealth. In the 1530s, the Tudor monarch gave it pride of place at Hampton Court, his seat of power.

Almost 20 ft wide, it was part of a now-lost set of nine tapestries depicting the life of Saint Paul.

I have no choice. I must don the mantle of greatness and take the reins of the country. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I will run for the office of dictator, or President in American parlance.

If Lindsey Graham complains that we need to kill more puzzled goatherds, I will have him inserted into the oil well on top of the Republicans and pseudo-Cubans, with Oprah tamped down on top as a sort of cork. There is nothing in Afghanistan that Americans need or want, except opium products, and private enterprise now provides these in abundance. Check the nearest street corner, or ask your kids.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

The Day U.S. Military Supremacy Publicly Ended

Military Budgets

The U.S. Military budget for FY 2019 will be $716 Billion. Add $70 Billion for Homeland Security, $70 Billion for the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies, $186 Billion for veterans’ benefits, and the U.S. spends more than a trillion dollars a year on “defense.” Two trillion dollars covers yearly mandatory expenses for social security, Medicare, Medicaid, and interest on the federal debt, leaving less than one trillion out of the country’s $4 Trillion budget left for everything else.

Russia’s military budget is $61 B a year, less than 10 percent of the U.S. military budget and less than that of Saudi Arabia.

Given the above facts, Russia would appear to be no match against the U.S. militarily.

HERE ARE 410 MOVIES MADE UNDER THE DIRECT INFLUENCE AND SUPERVISION OF THE PENTAGON

And what's more, unlike in authoritarian systems, in the West it is the consumers that are actually willing, if perhaps unwitting, participants in state propaganda. The Outline report continues:

Certainly, the content has alternative, sincere agendas, too, but it’s the giant, amorphous market of consumers that has called it forth. That’s the difference between our propaganda and everyone else’s. In autocratic regimes, a government-backed entity pushes it onto indifferent or unwilling consumers. In America, we, the consumers, happily demand it.

Below is a merely partial list of films in alphabetical order that had Pentagon involvement either during the script or production phase, according to declassified US government documents. Amazingly the list of 410 movies is but half of the total number (for example, Zero Dark Thirty and some other prominent ones are not on there) and was compiled by the FOIA investigative website Spy Culture.

BEAUTIFYING APARTHEID

An unknown artist has painted a mural of Palestinian resistance icon Ahed Tamimi on the Israeli separation wall in Bethlehem, just as her father said she might be released on Sunday after almost eight months of unjust imprisonment.

Media outlets had speculated about the artist’s identity, some describing him as Palestinian, but he has since come out as Italian street artist Agostino Chirwin. Also known as ‘Jorit Agoch,’ he has a reputation for hyper realistic murals of activists, politicians and other campaigners.

While painting the 13-foot mural, Chirwin obscured his identity by keeping a black cloth wrapped around his head.

Palestinians use Israel’s weapons to sow peace

A Palestinian man in Gaza has been turning empty tear gas canisters used by Israeli forces against Palestinian protesters near Gaza’s eastern border into pieces of art.

Thirty-four-year-old Abdul Karim Abu Ataya regularly collects the empty gas canisters near the border fence in order to transform them into decorative prayer beads and flower pots to “send a message of peace to the world.”

“We have been participating in the Great March of Return and calling for an end to the Gaza siege,” Abu Ataya told MEMO. “The occupation forces have been firing gas canisters at us, so I thought I’d use them to create prayer beads and flower pots.”

Portland gallery is forced to take down gruesome art work showing President Trump being beheaded ISIS-style after the owner received DEATH threats

The documentation gathered in photographs provided accurate visualization of damaged bodies, illnesses, and diseases. Photography contributed to medical research, education, and patient care.

Book Review - Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning by Andrei Martyanov

The fact that the US is facing a profound crisis, possibly the worst one in its history, is accepted by most observers, except maybe the most delusional ones.

When speaking of this crisis, most people will mention the deindustrialization, the drop in real income, the lack of well-paid jobs, healthcare, crime, immigration, pollution, education, and a myriad of other contributing factors. But of all the aspects of the “American dream”, the single most resilient one has been the myth of the US military as “the finest fighting force in history”.

Americans have no experience of real warfare (that is warfare in defense of their own land, family and friends) at all. For Americans warfare is killing the other guy in his own country, preferably from afar or above, while making a ton of money in the process. For Russians, warfare is simply about surviving at any and all cost. The difference couldn’t be greater.

2000-year-old preserved loaf of bread found in the ruins of Pompeii

The violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius is considered to be one of the greatest natural catastrophes of the ancient world when several cities in the Bay of Naples were covered in ash and rock and left just as they stood on that fateful day in 79 AD.

The eruption began around midday on August 24th. In the space of just 24 hours, the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, along with Stabiae, Oplontis, and Boscoreale, were completely buried.

The ruins of Pompeii were first “discovered” in the late 16th century, even though the existence of an ancient city, hidden for centuries somewhere below the ground, was well known.

With the help of modern archaeology, the remains of more than 1,500 people were recovered, and with them numerous mundane objects, encompassing the daily life of a Roman town — frozen in time.

The lost gardens of Heligan: Award-winning Cornwall gardens restored after years of neglect

While some of the earliest examples of cultivated gardens can be traced to the Ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations, the origins of the modern botanical garden is in medieval Europe. In Italy, during the period of the Italian Renaissance, the first medicinal gardens dubbed “physic gardens” started to blossom throughout the 16th century. In fact, much earlier, the Romans were known to be keen gardeners, aware of the numerous medicinal benefits certain plants can bestow.

During the 18th century, the British set up the Calcutta Botanic Gardens, a type of tropical garden. Their principal purpose was to cultivate crops such as tea, coffee, palm oil, and chocolate for mass consumption. The French had their own variant of such gardens in Mauritius and the Spanish in Tenerife. Nevertheless, it is wrong to assume these type of gardens were botanic gardens in the real sense of the word.

American Revolutionary Song: Chester - William Billings

Chester was a patriotic anthem composed by William Billings and sung during the American Revolutionary War. Billings wrote the first version of the song for his 1770 songbook The New England Psalm Singer, and made improvements for the version in his The Singing Master's Assistant (1778). It is the latter version that is best known today.

The curious title of the song reflects a common practice of Billings's day, in which tunes were labeled with (often arbitrarily chosen) place names. Billings's song evidently has little more to do with any particular town named Chester than his hymn tune Africa has to do with Africa. With identifiable names for compositions, performers could select different lyrics to sing with the music without creating confusion.
This song would rival Yankee Doodle as the unofficial anthem of the rebel colonies

The NWO Globalists are attempting to destroy the American Republic with civil war.

The New World Order globalist cabal has given marching orders to the American political class, top corporate officers and leadership throughout civil society to launch the next phase of CIVIL WAR 2.0.

It’s the Rothschild international banking cartel that appears to be instigating this ever-intensifying civil war via foreign agents such as George Soros.

Nevertheless, it is the likes of George Soros, Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Tim Kaine, John Podesta, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Andrew McCabe, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Tom Perez, Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris and many other Democratic traitors who willingly carry water for the NWO cabal. Therefore, the single most effective initiative that President Trump can take to prevent civil war is to arrest George Soros.

BEXALERT: Why Do We Underplay the Links Between Cannabis and Psychosis?

Big Pharma and Big Alcohol and the Judicial/Police/Prison Complex are in one big panic!
I post this as a classic example of propaganda and disinformation.

What is really needed in dealing with cannabis is a “tobacco moment”, as with cigarettes 50 years ago, when a majority of people became convinced that smoking might give them cancer and kill them. Since then the number of cigarette smokers in Britain has fallen by two-thirds.

A depressing aspect of the present debate about cannabis is that so many proponents of legalisation or decriminalisation have clearly not taken on board that the causal link between cannabis and psychosis has been scientifically proven over the past ten years, just as the connection between cancer and cigarettes was proved in the late 1940s and 1950s.

The Death of Independence

The inevitability of a decent into despotism, built into the structure of Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution, commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause, has proven true. It establishes that the federal constitution and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions.

Insatiable appetites and lust for power marks the ascendency of legislative, bureaucratic and judicial careers throughout the three branches of central government. Incrementalism and deception has evolved into open defiance and unfettered arrogance. The political class pretends that partisan parties actually offer loyal opposition, when both are camouflaged versions of the same vermin. As likely that cockroaches will inherit the earth, it is more certain that parasitic politicians steal the hopes and dreams of citizens, while destroying any chance for the common-man to have a future worth living.

Palestinian Embroidery

Malak Al-Husseini holds up a square piece of cross-stitch embroidery, with strong colours and patterns stitched with small, uniform, crosses. A small motif embroidered in red reappears across the piece, resembling an elongated pot with flowers. ‘This pattern comes from Jaffa,’ Al-Husseini says. ‘I know that from the flower pots, they are typical of Jaffa. I can immediately see where a piece of embroidery comes from – what specific part of Palestine,’ she says.

Many more pieces are spread out on the table in front of her – large ones with a multitude of colours, smaller ones with minimalist designs. Behind her, inside a wardrobe, is a literal archive of embroidery: sample after sample with different patterns and colour combinations hang tightly together. Some have embroidered palm trees and cypresses, others tiny apples and chickpeas – or figures with names like ‘cow’s eye’, ‘old man’s teeth’ or ‘the baker’s wife’.

The politicisation of Palestinian embroidery

Palestinians have had their land taken away, their music misappropriated and their food hijacked — but their embroidery and its significance for their identity proudly remains one of the most iconic symbols of their resistance.
Last month, the Palestinian Museum in Birzeit, located outside of Ramallah, launched Labour of Love: New Approaches to Palestinian Embroidery, which will run through August.

Building on years of research and fieldwork, this new exhibition seeks to critically re-orientate approaches to Palestinian embroidery, its history and contemporary significance. The exhibition also examines the politicisation of the handicraft, its use in paintings and posters, the implications of its commodification and the nature of its production by NGOs today.

G-6? 7? 8? How About the Gang That Can’t Shoot Straight?

I have to say that as much as I don’t like the direction Trump’s foreign policy has gone, there are still plenty of moments of unbridled joy in watching the man work a crowd.

His suggestion of allowing Russia back into the G-7 is one of those moments. Trump has a nearly preternatural way of getting under the skin of his opponents. And this stink bomb was one of them.

It highlighted the divide between the G-7, one of the most important tools of control by the globalists, and Trump.

Too Much Bad News Can Make You Sick, Say Researchers

PHILADELPHIA (CNN) – With every news alert or breaking story, our world seems to be pushed further and further into crisis. It is taking a serious toll on our environment but also on our mental health.

The world has always been stressful, but experiencing acute events occurring thousands of miles away is a new and challenging phenomenon. On any given day, it feels like the world is falling apart.

How can we brace for disaster and find the strength to withstand it? How will we adapt to our greater exposure to trauma? And will our mental health be sacrificed in the process?

All in the family: Valerie Jarrett and the Chicago communists

In Chicago, Jarrett’s family joined a circle with some other interesting characters:

Frank Marshall Davis was an African-American born in Kansas in 1905 who eventually moved to Chicago and joined Communist Party USA. Notably, he joined the party after the signing of the Hitler-Stalin Pact, a time when many American communists, particularly Jewish-American communists, left the party. They left because Stalin’s signing of the pact facilitated and enabled Hitler’s invasion of Poland and start of World War II. Frank Marshall Davis, however, was undeterred. He joined after the pact.
