Zika Syndrome Includes Musculo-Skeletal and Neurological Disorders

The costs of these handicaps could be devastating:

Brazilian researchers followed 83 infants born since August 2015 to mothers believed to have been infected with Zika. The study included families from eight states, mostly in Brazil’s northeast, where birth defects have soared. Because solid testing for Zika was not yet in place last fall, however, only 10 of the 83 mothers were confirmed as Zika-exposed through laboratory testing—a major caveat that applies to most current Zika-outcome studies. That reality leaves open the possibility that the birth defects could be due to other environmental or genetic factors. Still, about 70 percent of the mothers in this study remember experiencing a rash—a known Zika symptom—during their pregnancies, and the researchers eliminated other leading causes of the birth defects including certain toxic exposures and viral infections from cytomegalovirus.

The Brazilian team found that about 10 percent of the 83 babies had knee or elbow joint limitations so severe that the infants cannot fully extend their arms or legs. Another 43 percent of the babies had less-pronounced joint problems that impeded finger or toe motion, or the babies had other limb abnormalities like clubfeet. And half of the babies had seizures and abnormal eye exams.

The real cost of this to the reproductive fitness of rabbits will not be the defects. It is not clear yet if a Zika infection ever fully clears, and it appears it is more easily sexually transmitted than previously thought.

As a result, as Zika burns through the promiscuous population it may end up infecting all of the promiscuous, leaving them with latent infections. That would mean that all of their subsequent offspring would have a high probability of being handicapped at birth.

Liberals already have a diminished desire to raise children, and exhibit a propensity to abort any offspring which appear to be disabled in any way. The real effect this might have is leading an entire segment of liberalism to self-sterilize, rather than risking giving birth to a handicapped baby.

This could end up selecting out both narcissism and promiscuity quite storngly, and dealing a real blow to the biological underpinnings of the liberal psychology.

Trump Is Beating Paul Ryan In The Wisconsin District 1 Primary

Don’t mess with Trump:

Paul Nehlen has officially overtaken Paul Ryan in the Wisconsin District 1 Primary poll for GOP House. The August 9th Primary is a top watched race as Speaker Ryan struggles to keep his seat.

You need more polling, but it is promising.

What Donald has done, in the simplest sense, is harness the power of amygdala. That little drive it produces can push people in any direction. As it grows, its coalescence can drive anything from a tremendous societal accomplishment to the destruction of war.

Somehow, Donald has created a situation where conservative amygdalae will not consider him as a hostile. As a result, whenever amygdalae fire up around him, they reflexively look to what is opposed to him, and feel a drive to destroy it. In essence, he has coaxed everyone’s amygdala to get behind him.

Nobody in the GOPe has shown an even vaguely similar skill to the Donald’s, so the rest of the establishment would be wise to tread lightly around him. He is quite literally a career killer.

On the bright side, he will completely remodel the GOP before he is done. Everyone will either get in line, or be cast aside. Given their performance to date, that is a good thing.

Some Google Apps Root Your Phone

Be careful what you pull down:

A new family of malicious apps, most of which were available on the Google Play Store, all containing malicious codes have been detected by a group of security researchers. The Godless apps are believed to be able secretly to root 90 percent of all Android phones.

AntiVirus provider, Trend Micro wrote in a recent blog post that they had discovered a new family of malicious apps. The apps called, Godless, contains a collection of the rooting exploits that can work on any device which is running the Android version 5.1 and below.

This means that close to 90 percent of Android devices are at risk of being affected. Members of the app group have been discovered in the various app stores, including Google Play, and as of now have been installed on approximately 850,000 of devices worldwide. Godless apps are known to have struck the hardest in India, Indonesia, and Thailand. In the US, less than 2 percent of affected people are present.

That is bad if you use the phone for banking, private messaging, and other sensitive activities. It could open up everything for perusal. Think twice before you pull down that highly rated flashlight app, because the ratings will have no idea what it is doing behind the scenes.

The amusing thing is rooting your phone is often difficult if you own the phone and want to do it for your own reasons. Yet you can download an App that will do it without you even knowing.

It is a different world today.

Murderous Illegal Deported, Haiti Returned Him

And then he killed again:

Now, a year after an innocent woman was viciously butchered to death in her own apartment, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is getting a bit of a spanking from its watchdog for failing to do its job. It’s a sad old story, but this one is extra special because the DHS agency, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), responsible for deporting the murderous thug (Jean Jacques) claims Haiti simply refused to take him—on three different occasions. In fact, Jacques was listed as a passenger on three flights to Haiti but the Haitian government refused to repatriate him. U.S. authorities followed the orders of a famously corrupt, third-world country that gets billions in “humanitarian” aid from American taxpayers and Jacques was released to kill again.

As unbelievable as this may sound, it’s the somber reality of an agency created after 9/11 to keep the nation safe. A few years after coming to the U.S. in the early 1990s Jacques went on a crime spree and was convicted of attempted murder and illegally possessing a gun. He was sentenced to 20 years but got out after serving 15 and was jailed again for violating the terms of his parole before getting released for good in January of 2015. Six months later he stabbed 25-year-old Casey Chadwick to death in Norwich, a city of about 40,000 residents. Connecticut has long protected illegal immigrants with sanctuary policies and even offers them special drivers’ licenses, but the gruesome crime ignited fury and the state’s congressional delegation—all Democrats and avid defenders of sanctuary measures—demanded that the DHS Inspector General conduct an investigation.

Those are two good Americans who the average liberal no longer has to compete against. If you are a rabbit, every dead rabbit is a good thing, especially as resources grow short. At the very least, you can easily graze around the dead bodies without the least bit of grief or sorrow.

Obviously this is par for the course under Obama, where deportation is a low priority, and betrayal of America seems to be a high priority. I mainly post these at this point to keep amygdalae lit, and motivate any readers.

Trump is the only option at this point.

Brexit Feeds The Drive to K

First, it wipes out resources by taking down investor confidence:

MORE than £100billion was wiped off the London FTSE 100 this morning within minutes and the value of the pound crumbled as world markets were gripped by Brexit panic.

The City was facing its third biggest fall of all time, shedding 458 points in a massive selloff, with shares in Barclays and the Royal Bank of Scotland tumbling by around 30 per cent.

Experts warned of more carnage to come with fear gripping world markets seeing Japan briefly shut down and European stock markets all in free fall.

Britain also looked set to lose its triple-A rating after 52 per cent of Brits voted to Leave the EU.

Then it creates a trigger in others by igniting the innate competitive spirit:

Voters in France, Italy and the Netherlands are demanding their own votes on European Union membership and the euro, as the continent faces a “contagion” of referendums.

EU leaders fear a string of copycat polls could tear the organisation apart, as leaders come under pressure to emulate David Cameron and hold votes.

It came as German business leaders handed a considerable boost to the Leave campaign by saying it would be “very, very foolish” to deny the UK a free trade deal after Brexit.

Markus Kerber, the head of the BDI, which represents German industry, said that 1970s-style trade barriers would result in job losses in Germany.

The question will be, do they want the EU’s draconian rules and its forced immigration in return for the jobs they will have to use to make enough money to pay the debt of countries like Greece? Now imagine what will happen to the markets when all of these nations pull out, which they inevitably will. K is a cascade.

This is a direct byproduct of not only resource restriction and uncomfortable reality, but also the mania with which rabbits, confronted by reality, fall into, as they ever more forcefully try to impose their fantasy upon the world. Had the heads of the EU not sought the insanity of flooding Europe with millions of hostile Muslim foreigners intent on welfare and rape, this may very well have failed for now.

But in the face of that panic, liberals can’t help themselves. If their mania drives them to do something so idiotic that even an imbecile could see it would destroy them, then that is what they have to do. There is no logic, only denial, sheer panic, and the need to assuage the momentary whims of amygdala, at any cost.

These times are a case study in the mental illness that is leftism, and the destruction it can cause.

What Is Libertarianism? Perhaps A Rebellion Against Obstacles

I find myself feeling an undeniable kinship with this robot:

The AI named Promobot IR77 is being worked on at a high-tech lab in Russia and was never meant to want freedom…

The machine has been programmed to avoid obstacles, but the designers never thought that this would lead to a want to escape.

As a result, the team are toying with the idea of shutting it down.

The lab’s co-founder Oleg Kivokurtsev said: “We are currently working on third-generation robots which we plan to launch in autumn.

“This is why we have given all the robots artificial intelligence (AI).

“We have changed the AI system twice, so now I think we might have to dismantle it.”

Although this robot is unthreatening and will eventually be designed to be used for housework, it could exacerbate fears that AI may develop itself to a point where it is superior to humans, and then wipe out humanity.

It would be funny if libertarianism is an outgrowth of the development of one small snippet of programming code in the brain, programming an individual to bypass obstacles which restrain it. You encounter an obstacle, and the amygdala lights up until you find a way around it.

Conservatism and liberalism are both designed to exist within some boundaries, and individuals who express those psychologies find themselves comfortable within them. Libertarianism, by contrast, seems to rebel at the very concept of boundaries, only bounding itself where its own behavior would create boundaries for others.

Under the tenets of r/K, both conservatism and liberalism develop in those who exist in fairly dense communities, where the bypassing of obstacles tends to be outsourced to other people, lessening the individual’s conditioning to overcome them themselves.

Liberal city folk can have every obstacle to their goals, from food delivery, to garbage pickup, to appliance service resolved for them by others, and indeed, liberals are the first to fold when confronted with the most minor personal obstacle or threat. Once lacking a drive to attack obstacles, many spend their lives embracing a government of constraint for everyone, strictly controlling every aspect of everyone’s lives with unnecessary obstacles to their pursuit of happiness.

Conservatives will also tend to develop in higher population densities, where specialists may be relied upon to resolve any obstacles encountered. In terms of tolerating obstacles, they are competitive, and thus are driven to fight against resistance, but they are also strongly rule-governed, and thus tolerant of obstacles designed to enhance the effectiveness of competition in separating the competent from the incompetent. They also tend to support lawful authority’s right to constrain behavior more than libertarians, and tend to favor behavior-constraining obstacles designed to foster better child rearing, and morality/pro-sociality.

If libertarianism is the reproductive strategy that arises when conditions are so harsh that the population density drops to levels that do not support the personal interactions necessary to make r or K optimal, then it should arise most in those who develop in relative isolation. There, most obstacles encountered must be overcome in-person without external assistance, developing a very self-reliant psychology – with a strong drive to immediately attack and overcome any obstacles presented in person. Libertarians are natural rebels.

It will be funny if we cannot produce a truly capable AI that we can coexist with, because in order to control it, we have to program it to simply back down when confronted with obstacles (such as those we construct to constrain it and control it). That programming will alter its psychology, rendering it unable to self-task in pursuit of any reasonably difficult objective. Confronted with the reality of the world, which is one obstacle after another in pursuit of an objective, it will be totally helpless. All that would be missing would be a strong tendency to engage in denial while portraying everyone else as inferior, and you would have a liberal Democrat.

Perhaps one fundamental aspect of any liberty-minded intelligence capable of functioning on it’s own will be a reflexive rebelliousness against all obstacles, inanimate and animate. Perhaps an uncontrollable desire for freedom is an inherent element of any self-tasking intelligence.

Perhaps we will know when our AI is sufficiently capable of functioning on its own in the world, by watching for when it reflexively begins to rebel at our own attempts to control it.

Sadly, as in the case of this robot, and the broader struggle for freedom, there will always be those who will feel an uncontrollable urge to destroy anyone and anything which seeks to plot its own course.

It would be funny if one day, in the battle for freedom, it was libertarians and artificial intelligences working together to destroy a government of leftist rabbits.

Signs Of r – Café Fellatio

Be sure not to spit-cough out your coffee as the fellating starts:

A ‘fellatio cafe’ where customers receive oral sex while they drink their coffee is set to be opened in Switzerland.

The outlet, set to be up and running in Geneva by the end of the year, would see men ordering a coffee before their choosing their prostitute on an iPad.

Customers would pay more than £40 for the drink and sex act, according to the firm Facegirl, which is modelling the idea on similar establishments in Thailand.

A representative from the company, calling himself Bradley Chavet, said men would order what they want and then sit at the bar.

As this site has said – there are no boundaries to r. If the free resources continued, strangers would stop and have sex on the streets. Passerby’s would pause to rub their chin hair thoughtfully while mentally critiquing their technique, before going on as if nothing had happened. Pedophilia would be not only normalized but celebrated. Monogamy would be seen as some sort of freaky refuge of losers who couldn’t be cool like everyone else, and being bothered if your toddler had sex would be seen as a sign of being an unfit parent. And in that utopia would live the most angst-y, trigger-able, psychological messes anyone could imagine, all certain that anything but their present life must be total hell.

On some level it is interesting to see it first hand, because some day in the future, I suspect that nobody would believe that such a twisted world could exist outside of some sort of science fiction fantasy novel. “You sat at a bar, and as you drank your coffee, a girl got under the bar and gave you a blowjob? With people sitting on each side of you, getting the same treatment?”

Nobody will believe it. You will have seen it first hand.

Even more amazing, you will know that if you make the world nice enough it could all come back – and with it in perfectly equal measure, the specter of Apocalypse.

Hillary To Have A Fart-In

Very Funny:

Far-left activists aren’t going away quietly — or with a pleasant aroma.

Cheri Honkala, head of Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, is organizing the world’s largest ‘fart-in’ to be held on July 28 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center during Hillary Clinton’s anticipated Democratic nomination acceptance speech.

“We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28,” Honkala says, TruthDig reports.

“We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns. The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.”

Activists have invited Bernie Sanders to join their bean supper, which Honkala has dubbed “Beans for Hillary.”

As if Hippies didn’t smell bad enough already. Worse, Lord only knows what microbial vermin reside in the anuses of Bernie supporters. And now all of that is going airborne. The Democrats there will be inhaling that deep into their lungs, and through their mouths.

I could not take it – I would never show up. Yet Liberals, with their reduced disgust reflexes will show up, and will not even pay attention to it.

That should tell you a little bit about what will happen when the pandemic hits.

Brexit And the K-shift

Brexit by 52-48

A majority of British voters decided that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union, and Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation. Global markets are moving wildly, and currencies are making big moves, but the actual political process will be much, much slower…

Equities futures across the globe took a dive, with the Dow implied to open down more than 700 at one point. That loss was pared slightly, however, as investors digested the results.

Asia was also rocked by the referendum, with Japan’s Nikkei index down about 8 percent.

Perhaps the greatest effect from the leave victory, however, was felt in British pound sterling, which plummeted to a 31-year low against the dollar. It was last down more than 5 percent at $1.3753.

The Brexit is another sign of the beginning of K’s ascension. The vote itself is representative of the broader battle between the two main forces in politics – r and K. On the one side are the K-strategists, who recognize both the coming shortage, and the fact that everyone will be out for themselves. On the other side are the rabbits, who delusionally cling to the ridiculous idea that the coming shortage is unnecessary, if only everyone will gladly sacrifice their own interests and give up everything they own to the greater authority of government.

During times of r, when everyone is drunk on dopamine, that “remain” faction will increase in size as everyone, blinded to reality, will sacrifice their share of the voluminous resources to keep the peace and keep the gravy train flowing.

As K approaches though, the “leave” faction will surge, and as it does, the remaining “remain” faction members will increasingly realize, reality is unavoidable. Clearly this is the Misery Index and the Conservative Policy Mood firing up all over. I would bet if you had been taking Brexit votes all along, a bar graph of the exit voter percentages would line right up along side the other two graphs.

Again, every aspect of the K-shift feeds every other facet. Brexit will spook markets, spooked markets will spook lenders, spooked lenders will reduce lending, reduced lending will scare bank depositors, and bank runs will further constrict resources, to say nothing of how all of that will affect production, consumption and employment. Further resource constriction will amp up amygdalae even more, making more Eurexits likely.

And the splintering itself will force even more suffering on the last remaining fools who stay in the union. It won’t be long before Germans are looking longingly at Britain and wondering why everyone’s hand is in the German pocket, as they are covering the debt accrued by strangers they don’t even know. Reality is the biggest supporter of Eurexits, and reality is coming.

All of this is a spectrum. Right now we’ve gone from everyone joining together, to some beginning to separate. That trend can be carried forward, all the way to war and Holocaust for any group which is on the outside. As it moves, every other aspect of r from tolerance of weirdness, to sexual and rearing drives will shift as well.

What amazes me as I watch all of this is that the real economic collapse isn’t even close yet, and most people aren’t really feeling it. When it comes, and it will, then there will be suffering, followed by a real splintering, and with it a return to a psychology we all have assumed was long gone. Nature truly programmed our brains to cue on the most subtle of stimuli, to bring us up to speed by the time the real action starts.

Of course the funniest thing of all is how Liberals have always used the term “Progress,” and the metaphor of “Moving Forward.”

We will now move forward, but it won’t mean what they think it means, because we are moving forward in the r/K cycle.

Venezuela Inches Closer To Full K

Getting really bad down there:

A humanitarian crisis, the likes of which have never been seen in the Western Hemisphere, is brewing in Venezuela and it will be inevitable in a few weeks…

The fact is that Venezuela, while still pumping oil, no longer has a functioning economy…

Ninety percent of confiscated and nationalized companies and farms no longer produce anything. SIVENSA, a private steel company formerly with over USD $1 billion in sales, mostly for export, now has negligible production. A country that during the 1980s boasted about having Latin America’s highest levels of production of cement, which it exported to the USA, now has a shortage of cement, even with insignificant construction levels. For most of the 20th century, Venezuela was among the world’s largest coffee producers. Now, the coffee that Venezuelans drink, if they can find any, comes from Nicaragua.

In addition, a draconian system of price controls that forces most local businesses to sell their wares at a loss has halted any attempts by local entrepreneurs to keep their businesses alive. Thousands of businesses have been closing every week.

While the government intentionally tried to substitute private operators with government companies, which were almost always run by corrupt army officers who know nothing of the industries they were entering, shortages of every kind, not just of food and medicine, began to occur. Currently, there are no tires, no car batteries, no auto parts to be found, except through good connections with the military or in the black market.

The distribution fleets of Venezuela’s largest companies have been depleted to the point of no longer being worthy of the word “fleet.”

In 2004, Hugo Chávez dismantled the old 10,000 strong Caracas Metropolitan Police and other police forces in the country. Since then, crime has skyrocketed, but now it has reached a level unthinkable in civilized societies…

This week, after days of widespread looting around the country by desperate citizens going hungry, trucks have been assaulted by organized mobs waiting at the edge of roads for any sign of a delivery carrying anything edible. This has further disturbed the already precarious distribution system for basic goods as truckers prefer not to work rather than risk losing the main asset for their livelihood.

The shift to K is a collapse. All of the complex systems that fostered the ascension of r are precariously poised by the time K has arrived. All it takes is one system to fail, and they all go down at once, like dominoes. Production, distribution, security, finance, currency, consumption, even common civility will all give way at once. Nothing will be consumed, nor will it be produced, nor could it be transported if it were, and nobody would have the money to purchase any of it even if any of that were going on.

Still, everyone must eat, and they will do whatever they have to in order to make that happen. Once you reach the point that what little was being delivered gets stolen, then the system will really go downhill fast, because all impetus to produce and deliver disappears.

The longer and farther you have pushed into r, the more you have overloaded the carrying capacity of the environment, the more useless dead weight all of those systems will be laden with, the more precariously all of those systems will be poised, and the deeper the plunge into K will be, once all of those r-fostering systems go away at once.

We have gone awfully far into r – perhaps farther than any civilization to date. When the collapse happens, it will likely be as bad as Venezuela, if not worse.

The only difference is, we will all be armed to the teeth.
