The incremental push to legalize marijuana might seem, on the surface, and particularly to Libertarians as a positive. Most have evolved to regard the “weed,” related plants and all of its derivatives as medicinal, healthful, and a superior way to “chill” than alcohol.
Alex Berenson embraced many if not all of the notions above, but ultimately found himself on a journey of discovery that brought him to unexpected and profound realizations. I had first heard Alex speak of his new book on Dr. Michael Savage’s program, and was rather surprised by his assertions that young users under 25 were vulnerable to serious long term health consequences including schizophrenia and bipolar disorders.
On a recent broadcast of Dr. Michael Savage, a seemingly sharp and sensible NY Times writer was given opportunity to promote his new book on immunology. Dr. Savage is greatly interested and seemed very pleased for the chance to host a discussion on a field that’s very much aligned with his own interest and expertise.
The author, Mr. Matt Richtel, began with a story of a personal friend whom was among the first to experience a significant remission in an otherwise fatal cancer, by defeating cancer’s dirty trick that ordinarily sends “stand down” signals to an immune system that might otherwise attack most any abnormal tissue.
Now he did also caution that the immune system can be something of a pandoras box, and unleashing its powers can also be a dangerous business. The combination of his interesting statements and Dr. Savage’s introduction, definitely had me keenly interested in their conversation and ultimately left me with a desire to learn more. And who wouldn’t want to learn of a possible tweak to turn our own immune system to defeat cancer?
While the villains that either exacerbated or arranged California’s fires exploit the horror they created to pitch “Climate Change” for their globalist masters, others are raising some rather more serious questions.
Perhaps it’s time to look into those Direct Energy Weapons patents and/or hardware and how they might account for at least a portion of the destruction in lives and property that appears to prove all too convenient well documented Agenda 21 directives.

There are lots of words that are tossed about to describe a measurement of how “smart” we all are and how “dumb” some of our neighbors might be. Now there are terms like “educated, informed, intellectual, intelligent, bright,” and some are even branded as “scholarly,” “genius” or “gifted.”
Ultimately all these labels represent measurements of one or both of two things, namely cognitive capability, and the depth of knowledge and understanding that might be achieved with it over time. And the latter can be described with a single word, “wisdom.” Continue reading “On IQ and Human Intelligence”
