Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

I'm sure you've heard all the Arizona shooting theories by now, but here they are anyway: Jared Loughner was a Manchurian Candidate, he's a white supremacist, he's a right-wing nut, he's a left-wing nut, and he sacrifices oranges to Satan. What's weirder than Ken Kesey insisting most of his neighbors were aliens? Damned if I... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

Courtesy of Nexus magazine Nexus magazine, as I've mentioned before, is cover-to-cover batshit insanity on crack. It recycles the craziest of the crazy "alternative health" and conspiracy memes, everything from the health benefits of drinking your own piss to reasons why the moon is probably hollow. The American edition is a bi-monthly edited by Duncan... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

Once in a great while, I meet a person who is so profoundly clueless that just a few minutes spent with him/her provides enough material for an entire Wednesday Weirdness Roundup (Sheldon and TrutherBitch being prime examples). I met one such person today. I'll call him Gus, for Gullible Uninformed Simp. Gus appears sane enough;... Continue Reading →

2009 Predictions: Pass or Fail?

Here are a few of the most interesting predictions for '09, from some of the most trusted sources in the field of professional prognostication. How well did they do? The aliens will introduce themselves on television. FAIL. On the July 10, 2009 broadcast of Coast to Coast AM, psychic David Wilcock announced that his inside... Continue Reading →

One of the biggest, spookiest boogeymen in the H1N1 vaccine hysteria is the use of squalene in oil-based vaccine adjuvants. What the paranoia-peddlers fail to mention is that oil-based adjuvants aren't used in human vaccines, as I explain in "Much Ado About Squalene" at Leaving Alex Jonestown. You might as well be worrying that your... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

If you're wondering why I bother with this blog and Leaving Alex Jonestown, it's because of people like the girl I'll call Susie. Susie is an 18-year-old waitress at a restaurant in a small Minnesota town, and last week she told my mother that there's no way she's going to get an H1N1 shot. After... Continue Reading →

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

I just learned that Jay Smith, one of two men convicted for the brutal 1979 murder of Pennsylvania teacher Susan Reinert and her two children, died in May. His conviction was overturned in 1992. If you're not familiar with the "Main Line Murders", there's a fairly good synopsis at truTV's Crime Library. Be warned that... Continue Reading →

Conspiracy Monday: And the award for Stupidest Michael Jackson Death Conspiracy Theory goes to….

According to a June 25th article at Natural (home to all the alternative-health weirdness you can handle, plus more), Jane Burgermeister is an Austrian investigative journalist who recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization, the United Nations, Barack Obama, various pharmaceutical company executives and public health officials, and others*....

Conspiracy Monday: Masonic vaccines and other stuff

I hesitate to call the following a "conspiracy theory". It's more like "completely clueless and misinformed rambling." An elderly woman caller to a Canadian radio show, who gives free all-day seminars in Vancouver, had this to say about vaccines and the NWO: She began her rant by saying that most of us are completely ignorant...
