The results of a study, which was conducted off a self-reported poll by Pew Research in March on this year, indicated that across all races and age groups, those who identified as conservative were far less likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness by a doctor. Ph.D. student Zach Goldberg took the overall data and created a chart to show how likely a person is to develop mental illness based on race and political affiliation. Not surprising if you have been paying attention, Whites who identified as "very liberal" - AKA the majority of our nation's socialistic woketard leftists – were far more prone to emotional and mental problems.
When filtered by race, the problem becomes even more defined. Whites who identified as "very liberal" – you know, the young soft skulls of Antifa and BLM, and those espousing Critical Race Theory and professing their white guilt – are twice as likely as their non-white counterparts to suffer from mental illness.Among white liberals, the most affected group were far-left women. 56.3% of white leftist females admitted stress and mental health issues. But then we already knew about them ........

Once upon a time, archaeologists dug up a Babylonian clay tablet describing a ceremony where the Chief Priest of Marduk slapped the King, as hard as he could. If the king cried it was a blessing on the nation. Now I'm not saying I want to try out a god-king theocracy or anything like that you see, but this 'to restore cosmological order, slap the king around a bit' concept intrigues me. Let's explore, shall we!
When he [the king] arrives before Bel [also known as Marduk], the high Priest leaves, taking the mace, the loop and the scepter. He [also] takes the crown of his kingship. He then brings them before Bel and places them on a pedestal before Bel. He leaves and strikes the king's cheek. If, as he strikes his cheek, tears flow, Bel is friendly. If tears do not flow, Bel is angry. The enemy will arise and bring about his downfall. He places [the king] behind him and brings him before Bel. He drags him in by his ears. He forces him to kneel down on the ground. The king says the following only once."I have not sinned, Lord of all Lands. I have not neglected your divinity. … I have not struck the cheek of those under my protection, I have not belittled them."After [The High Priest] has spoken, the king retains his dignity as usual. [The High Priest] retrieves the mace, loop, scepter, and crown and hands them back over to the king. 
The ceremony has a heavy focus on warding off abuses of power. Along with things you'd expect from an old-timey oath of office like military defense and religious duties, it covers not being an asshole to the powerless.
In any case, the symbolic message is clear. Even kings are helpless, naked mortals before the gods. The political message is also clear. If this looks like priests making the head of state their lil bitch, well … yeah.
Why is this ceremony relevant today you ask your Editrix? First, it's a lovely reminder that people have always been kinky. But second, an most importantly, in modern terms our educated Founding Fathers made "We The People" the Priest, and the "King" the nation's elected leader. And just like the Babylonian's priest, the founders insisted America's leaders "not be agents of chaos who interferes in the daily lives of ordinary people."
Correct power imbalances are so traditional, the old gods made kings kneel for it. So be careful, "Mr. President-Elect". Watch who you let influence you or else the line to slap you around could soon be forming.

|CNN Resident Soft Skull, Don Lemon|
Lots of people (most of them Democrats) think of the Democrat Party as the party of science, in asserting themselves as people of rationality and objective facts (as opposed to people of “blind” faith), and their ideological opponents.
I wonder, was Lemon speaking of disagreeing with his 'Party of Science' that believes a heart beat is not life? That it's vessel is just insignificant tissue and an unwanted intrusion if one chooses it to be so. Science? Insignificant tissue is the wart on the back of you hand, or a benign tumor. Neither of which could grow to stand on the surface of the Moon, or create Great Art or Music.
Or was he speaking of the 'Party of Science' that believes a man can be a women just because they want to be, that if a person’s gender identity does not match his or her sex, then that person’s sex is determined by his or her gender identity. To assert that a person changes his or her sex whenever his or her “internal sense of being male or female” changes means somebody flunked Biology 101.
Or maybe he speaks of the Party of Science on climate change, of the consensus that the planet has been warming due to human carbon emissions. The climate trend over the last several hundred years is not one anybody credible disputes, because the climate has been Changing For The Last 4 Billion Years!! We are still retreating from the last Ice Age!
I could go on, but you get the idea. Media today like CNN is pure propaganda, with their prominent sidebar of covid death tolls and positive test numbers, but no sign of asymptomatic cases, recovery stats or false positives. Just fear mongering.
And Science is not always settled. Just as history has to be revisited as facts are discovered, science cannot see absolute truths in some areas. Only what can be ascertained by the facts that are known. But activist and the media, emotions and propaganda, do not hold the keys to the truth. And Don Lemon is a real Dickhead. Don't be like Don Lemon.

Noted German Doctor of Alternative Medicine and Lockdown Critic Arrested By Merkel's Gestapo Live on YouTube Stream
While Frau Merkel sips champagne at the G20 summit, her state police are raiding the homes and arresting German Covid lockdown critics. With shades of the WW2 Gestapo raid on a Dutch attic we are all familiar with, this arrest was captured live and is causing a stir everywhere but in the American media.
The renowned German Chemist and Alternative Medicine Doctor, Andreas Noack, was arrested while engaged in a live stream internet (Webinar) conference. The Doctor has criticized the lockdown measures and the new law the german government just passed called the 'Infection Protection Law.' They didn’t just send normal police, they’ve sent in the USK (Unterstützungskommando) which usually raids hideouts of terrorists and known armed and dangerous criminals.
The video shows the doctor’s door getting kicked in, and police treating him like a violent insurgent for his expression of ideas. Policemen can be heard banging furiously on the door of the place, where Dr. Noack was broadcasting. “It’s the police,” a man can be heard saying off-camera in panic. The video then shows police barging into the building forcing Dr. Andreas Noack to the ground. The police then proceed to terminate his live stream.
With the way NYC's oppressive treatment of some religious minorities have been lately, let's hope Mayor Wilhelm De Blasio doesn't get any ideas....[Global Research]
