Paul Robeson’s ECT at the Priory

ECT statistics

In September 1961 the American actor Paul Robeson was admitted to the Priory Clinic in Richmond, London, and treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). His son, Paul Robeson junior, has long suspected that the CIA may have had a hand in both his father’s sudden breakdown during a visit to Moscow and subsequent treatment in London (and, later, in New York).

Paul spent nearly two years in the Priory Clinic, with occasional short visits home to the London flat where he lived with his wife Eslanda. It was his wife who organised his admission to the Priory and consented to ECT, his son not learning he had been given ECT until later. Eventually Eslanda was persuaded that the regime of ECT and heavy doses of drugs at the Priory were not doing any good; Paul was removed from the Priory and taken to a clinic in East Germany where he spent…

Teddy Terrorizes

Dioniso Punk

It seems this world has definitively lost any trace of our original innocence and tenderness, so nothing is safe anymore and everything conceals a risk. According to Getty Images, even Teddy isn’t always so sweet.

Kind of like many horror authors, the photo agency curated a list of stock photos featuring various beloved toy bears in situations ranging from shocking to bizarre to downright disturbing. Can your childhood bear being destroyed yet again?

Victorian Giants

Dioniso Punk

Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll are the guest stars of a fascinating exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London next spring, together with other three of the most celebrated figures in art photography: Julia Margaret Cameron, Oscar Rejlander, and Clementina Hawarden. These four artists would come to embody the very best in photography of the Victorian era. Their experimental approach to picture-making and radical attitudes towards photography have informed artistic practice ever since.

Featuring striking portraits of sitters such as Charles Darwin, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Thomas Carlyle, George Frederick Watts, Ellen Terry and Alfred, Lord Tennyson, the exhibition will include loans from the Royal Collection, the V&A and Tate, as well the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and other museums in Sweden and Germany. Fragile images rarely displayed because the prints and negatives are so vulnerable to light damage.

Lewis Carroll’s portraits of Alice Liddell, the real model…

Disasterland

Dioniso Punk

Through his family-unfriendly paintings of Cinderella in a meat dress or Jasmine and Belle making out and the Queen from Snow White snorting cocaine, José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros, from Mexico, just seeks to highlight the striking contrast between our ideals and our realities: I think it’s time to stop being afraid and to speak without hesitation about certain taboo subjects.

But, as opposed as it might seem, Rodolfo has utmost respect for the artistry of Disney cartoons, since served as his “first visual school”: It was very stimulating. The colorful landscapes, the stylization of the characters and the amazing animation inspired me. Disasterland — from a past exhibition at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles — is his tribute to pop culture, fashion, animation, horror films and the undeniable attraction of celebrity.

Hate Thy Brother

Dioniso Punk

As one of the most significant events of “the Troubles” — an ethno-nationalist conflict in Northern Ireland during the late 20th century — because a large number of civilian citizens were killed, by forces of the state, in full view of the public and the press, Bloody Sunday was celebrated from 1972 to today by artists like John Lennon, Paul McCartney, U2, Roy Harper, Black Sabbath, Thomas Kinsella and many others. It’s an event recalled every year through memorials and marches and that still has the potential to divide Northern Ireland’s fractious politicians. Even though many soldiers never fired a shot, the cloud of anxiety still hangs heavy on their lives. Someone has suffered depression and years of worry: “we served our country and have been abandoned”.

26 people were shot by the paratroopers, 13 died on the day and another died four months later. One of these was…

GIANT TREES BEFORE THE FLOOD! No Trees on Flat Earth-Biblical Perspective 

FLAT EARTH SCIENCE AND THE BIBLE

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING!!! This will totally change your thinking about our earth and how you see it. We have seen mesas, buttes, and jagged rock mountains, but we have never truly SEEN them for what they are! Even if you are a Flat Earther, this is going to blow your mind! The pictures speak for themselves, but I highly recommend watching the video link below. It is fantastic and explains why these large rock structures are not lava formations, but are something much different than we’ve been told.


Here is the video that recently came out and is rocking the Flat Earth community.

There are No Forests on Flat Earth Wake up

Many assumptions have been made about how trees could have been this large and where they went. This is a view of these giant tree stumps from a Biblical perspective.

The evidence pointing to these large…

The giant pig farm disaster: a medical hoax and cover story

The full truth has never been told—until now.

by Jon Rappoport

January 18, 2017

“To handle all that [pig-farm feces] waste, farmers in North Carolina use a standard practice called the lagoon and spray field system. They flush feces and urine from barns into open-air pits called lagoons, which turn the color of Pepto-Bismol when pink-colored bacteria colonize the waste. To keep the lagoons from overflowing, farmers spray liquid manure on their fields nearby. The result, says Steve Wing, an epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is this: ‘The eastern part of North Carolina is covered with shit’.”National Geographic, 10/30/14

The above quote describes corporate pig farming around the world.

In order to carry out this operation, giant companies like Smithfield have influenced…

Bombshell: Sacrificing children to the state of California: SB18

Watch out for the big money behind this operation: it’s the secret

by Jon Rappoport

December 15, 2016

This article is dedicated to Patrick Wood, author ofTechnocracy Rising, a book everyone should read. Yesterday.

A bill introduced by the notorious Richard Pan, the mover and shaker behind the mandatory vaccination law in CA—this new one, SB18, is a grab-bag of generalities basically giving over care of children to the State.

Catch the flavor of the wording. It emerges like swamp gas:

“The Legislature finds and declares that all children and youth, regardless of gender, class, race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, or ability, have inherent rights that entitle them to protection, special care, and assistance, including, but not limited to, the following: The right to parents, guardians, or caregivers who act in their best…

Making Sauerkraut

The Local Harvest Dish

Last fall I wrote a post about the wonderful and engaging Edwards family and their farm in Illinois.  A year later I’m happy to say I still think they are wonderful and engaging and I still find their produce delicious!  Ethan, who is the youngest son of Marie and Clark, sent me the family recipe for sauerkraut. You can meet Ethan, Marie and Clark on Sept. 18th as they are some of the featured farmers for that night’s “Know Your Farmer” dinner during our KNOW YOUR FOOD CELEBRATION.   I promise you’ll love it!

Here it is:

kraut2[2]Here’s the recipe just as it came to me from my grandma, Ida Knobeloch, in 1984.  It has some ambiguities that I’ll comment on at the end, but thought I’d copy the recipe just as I got it.
