Happy New Year's, H.A., mi amigo


I am moving the kook chips all in. I think Melvin and H.A. are related. H.A. is well-known obviously through the Bernie Bot movement. Melvin gets published by the medium. He claims to be an "ex-CIA" analyst. You can also track him down on Youtube.

Granted there can be confirmation bias. Who wouldn't want the scoop that H.A.'s dad or uncle is fricken cia. That would be pure wow territory and worth a double scoop.

I watched the two in various youtube settings. They seem very similar. Just saying. Watch them closely as if you were Rainman. Then decide if they are related.

Melvin Goodman had popped up in search results one time I went fishing for H.A. info.

It seemed too good to be true, but the more I listened and watched for their facial expressions and overall patterns, I could have sworn they are kin.

I am of course speaking to the future because the internet is completely rigged and fake. You could get a triple scoop and be rewarded with the sound of crickets chirping.

Maybe the rumors are true that I am out of writing material.

I'll tweet this to H.A. and try to get an answer out of him. The spy groups are always pointing out that they can neither confirm nor deny. I am grokking that position from Goodman. In that case, H.A. has been intuited as a paid fake and it apparently turned out as truth on the good guy snoops meter.

Elder abuse in care homes, a worrying pattern in society today

My first ever experience of nursing homes was at the tender age of 17. I was undertaking work experience at the time. I don`t remember much about it, but what I can remember is the smell of the place. The unmistakable smell of uric acid; pungent and lingering; to you and I, the smell of stale urine.

What does that tell you about the nursing home I was placed at? The elderly residents did not get to the toilet in time or that they had been left in that state for some time? From my experience, I know how crucial it is to ensure skin is kept clean and dry. Imagine what happens to the skin when in contact with urine for any length of time and the result will surely be sore skin.



I don`t like to look too much into the future, but maybe one day that elderly urine soaked patient sat in a nursing home could be you or me, or a family member, who knows?

For me, if there was no other way of taking care of myself and indeed it was deemed unsafe to remain at home, the option of spending the remains of one`s life in a care home setting is daunting.

I guess you would want reassurance that if it did happen, one would receive the utmost respect and care from health professionals.

The cost of such care is enormous. People often have to sell their homes and give up on the things that they have set a life time working for. With the world population living longer, the demand for care homes will rise.



This is not intended to be a sob story but is a truth that is happening right now in some care homes, not just here in the UK, but globally. Subtle, unseen behind closed doors, there appears a crisis of conscience, a crisis of cruelty, a crisis of no respect for our elders.

I am talking about some of the carers who are supposed to be protecting such defenceless and vulnerable people.

When you hear about neglect and abuse, the terms may conjure up horror stories to some of you, those of you whom have experienced this with family members? The terms neglect and abuse can have multiple meanings, so for this I provide a quote, which I believe is most relevant to what I am discussing:


source: https://www.psychologytoday.com/conditions/elder-or-dependent-adult-neglect


Worrying statistics from the US alone show a hellishly high number of abuse cases.



What can be done about this kind of trauma happening time and time again with seemingly little punishment for the perpetrators?

How about CCTV cameras being installed in care homes? Would that put potential offenders off? Well, I`m not keen on this big brother thing but it could serve a purpose.



Back in 2004, a study conducted by Cottle discussed the issues of installing "granny cams".  (see full findings here) http://publish.illinois.edu/elderlawjournal/files/2015/02/Cottle.pdf

Now, some states in the US already use them. I am unsure how many, but cost may be one huge impediment. Maybe heads of state ought to pour money into this?

What do the care workers think about installing cameras to watch them? Well, one sample of 2000 workers were uneasy about having cameras installed in individual rooms. I wonder why?

I want to show the stark and painful images caught on video by family members who were concerned their loved ones were having money stolen from them. What they found was far far worse.

And this one is video proof of a 96 year old elderly American woman tortured by two nurses.

Just two instances alone is enough to view, but there are far too many others to see.

And these people are supposed to be carers? What would I do with them, for inflicting such torment and pain on those who cannot defend themselves? Perhaps I could string them up, see how they would like to be physically and mentally abused? What would you do? I am no vigilante, but God it makes me angry. What if I went undercover, filmed secretly, complained, whistle blowed or became an inspector? You see, the problem with anything like this is people hate being complained about-how often does one get ostracised because of it? Seen as a trouble maker even.

Do these people know what dignity means, trust I ponder. What will make things change?

Will it take change in the law and better staff training? Whilst poor pay, low morale and lack of support may play roles in abuse and neglect, how can any of those ever be used as an excuse?

I do want to be clear on this issue. I am not in any way saying that all nursing homes are bad, because they are not.

Institutionalised abuse is a crime against humanity, of common decency and I do not discuss this as an outsider but as one who has experienced this. I know first hand how vulnerable elders can be. Shame on you who think you have a right to abuse.

The Post-Manifesto Age



I told everyone that everything is rigged and fake, but no one believed me. Even conspiracy theories have been one big, fat farce created and maintained by the Military-Industrial Complex. It's looking like we didn't even go to the moon. You want to know how I know that? What is the best evidence that we went there? It's all a false positive.

You'd have to be nuts to think that.
Are you one of those conspiracy turds?
Yeah, well, Alex Jones isn't going to pay your rent and put food on the table.

That isn't proof. Getting spun as a conspiratard doesn't equate to defeat.

Those are the same losers complaining about fake news. George Orwell called it doublespeak. Maybe in German it is referred to as dougenschaden. I just made up that word to mock German words placed in italics. Fricken. How fake is everything? Paid fakes are telling us what's real and what's Memorex. I guess you had to be there.

That's the rub, Horatio. McLuhan was right. Content don't mean shite. The medium is a machine. It is currently in the process of rebooting. Ye can't let them get away with it. Turn off the t.v.. Wake the fock up. There is nothing greater than nature. Everything we were taught has been outright lies. Outright, I sez to ya.



"Conspiracy Stories"

It's right there above in our faces. We are in a post-manifesto age because it's no longer possible to tell the real from the fake. Until the U.S. government stops playing psychological operations with its citizens, nothing will improve.

We should probably thank Bernie Sanders for being a tool. Now we know. The best of the best in U.S. politics didn't have what it takes when it mattered most. He didn't want to be blamed for Trump's win. He did nothing to confront the demon which is the DLC/DNC or whatever acronym they switch to next. He kissed their butt. He gave away too much. He settled too much. He got his arse paddled and responded with, "Thank you, sir. May I have another?"

No one can be trusted means what it says.

Except for me. That's how this schtick continues to flow non-dependent on viewer support.

It's been said that stats are for losers. Anyway, there were two big spikes on my Twitter signifying zeitgeist movement.



I'm not trying to show off. I could easily show some stats for this blog showing how little traffic it gets. I stopped blogging. It takes hard work to maintain internet stats. Anyway, the above was from Sept. 11th to the 12th. That was the day Hillary collapsed.


The above would be considered good stats for myself. I can't speak for others. The point isn't to pat me on the back. These stats were from November 25th to the 26th. Those solid numbers were myself capitalising on the fallout from Julian's alleged appearance on Beirut television.

I guess my whole Twitter is accessible for reading. This is how you do it.


For example, this is what I filled in to find my tweets from the day Hillary collapsed.


I filled in my username, the date and also included my retweets. Although Twitter confines us to 140 character micro posts, I have always tried to write in a flow from tweet to tweet. I don't want to reinvent any wheels. I'm just saying there is a lot of schtick to be found there. I got tired of blog writing. But now I am tired of Twitter.

I'll have to make a solid effort to not be scrubbed from Twitter. I have a copy of all my tweets. They send them on request. But if my Twitter was erased, they wouldn't be much good to me or anyone. It would be painstaking work to republish. I would be working off of old junk for the rest of me life. I would be wallowing in internal chatter.

And I truly believe I am the reincarnation of Lenny Bruce, for what it's worth. This is a pretty wild ride we are all on. There is nothing more trippy than consciousness.

I am incapable of writing a manifesto. I'd rather just leave it as, this was my schtick and make of it what you will. You are the universe.
