At Tuesday’s Board of Supes meeting the Humboldt County boring Supes will give their subservient nod to revoking the probation department’s performing of “mental health” services. Of course they are not doing this act because they want to, they're doing it because a higher legislature saw the stupidity of allowing probation officers to be simultaneously mental health case managers.

Although this is one of those “one step forwards” in the “one step forward two steps back dance,” separating those that are supposed to heal from those who punish is a good move. Unfortunately the cops and mental health are starting to forge bigger and more oppressive Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) to terrorize the mentally ill.

Soon the mental health will have their Mobile Drugging Unit (MDU) stocked with a couple of cops and a goonish, Haldol syringe packing mental health orderly. They will be able to declare anyone they choose “mentally ill,” and shoot them full of Haldol on the spot. Anybody, anywhere, for any reason can be doped and then brought before a Judge who will sentence them to a life of highly toxic nut-pills. It doesn’t matter how “sane” you were before, because the Judge only believes you're sane now because you're on anti-psychotics.

We must insist that the cops leave doctoring to the doctors. Law enforcers are not a very smart or compassionate way to help the mentally broken. Law enforcers are robotic mercenaries. They enforce laws designed to prevent the wealthy and ruling class from being “bothered.” That doesn’t bode well for those who truly need medical help.

Secondly we must insist that if the psychiatrists are going to force people to take anti-psychotics then we need professionals in place to get these people “off their meds” safely.

Psychiatrists Wrong . . . Again

Peace be with you

The New York Times said this morning that the silly psychiatrists were manipulating the wrong damn neurotransmitter in schizophrenics. It turns out it wasn’t the dopamine after all. How many school shootings could the psychiatrists have saved us?

The Psychiatrists poison the peoples of the world on a guess and they ALWAYS guess wrong. They’re still wrong. It’s not going to be any different with their new theory.

The Pharmaceutical corporations only care about the profit. They make drugs like Zyprexa for a government contract worth billions. You add on to that the diabetes medicines they sell as accessory to their Zyprexa and you have the backbone of the Eli Lilly profits.

Another idea might come from Hearing Voices Network. The following two paragraphs come from Guidelines for Hearing Voices Groups in Clinical Settings (2004 update). I suggest you read it all.

From: Guidelines for Hearing Voices Groups in Clinical Settings
Voice hearing is often seen as a prime symptom of psychosis (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). However there are a significant proportion of the voice hearing populations that have never been psychiatric patients (Honig et al.,1998). Hearing voices (auditory hallucinations) is considered a first rank symptom of the specific psychosis of schizophrenia (Schneider, 1959). There are
three main psychiatric categories of patients that hear voices; schizophrenia (around 50%); affective psychosis (around 25%) and dissociative disorders (around 80%) (Honig et al., 1998).

However, many people who hear voices find them helpful or benevolent (Romme & Escher, 1993). In a large study of 15,000 people it was found that there was a prevalence of 2.3% who had heard voices frequently and this contrasts with the 1% prevalence of schizophrenia (Tien, 1991). In a study by Honig and others (1998), of the differences between non-patient and patients hearing voices, it was not in form but content. In other words the non-patients heard voices both inside and outside their head as did the patients but either the content was positive or the hearer had a positive view of the voice and felt in control of it. By contrast the patient group were more frightened of the voices and the voices were more critical (malevolent) and they felt less control over them (Honig et al,1998). The experience of hearing critical voices is often very anxiety provoking and leads to high levels of depression and suicidality (Harkavy-Friedman et al., 2003). Conventional approaches in psychiatry to the problem of voice hearing have been to ignore the meaning of the experience for the voice hearer and concentrate on removing the symptoms (audio hallucinations) by the use of physical means such as medication (Romme & Escher, 1989). Although anti-
psychotic medication is very helpful to most sufferers of psychosis (Fleischhaker, 2002), there is a significant proportion (30 per cent) that still experience the ‘symptoms’ such as hearing voices despite very high doses of injected anti-psychotic (Curson, Barnes, Bamber, & Weral, 1985). The social psychiatrist Marius Romme, believes that anti-psychotic medication prevents the emotional processing and therefore healing, of the meaning of the voices (Romme & Escher, 2000). Traditional practice in behavioural psychology concentrated on either distracting the patient or ignoring references by the patient to the voice hearing experience, with the hope that the patient would concentrate on ‘real’ experiences, which would then be positively reinforced (the assumption being that the voice hearing was a delusional belief). The effect of this approach may well have been to discourage the discussion about the voice hearing experience but without eradicating it (P.D.J. Chadwick, Birchwood, & Trower, 1996). However brain imaging has since confirmed that voice hearers do experience a sound as if there were a real person talking to them (Shergill, Brammer, Williams, Murray, & McGuire, 2000). Within the last ten years there has been considerable interest in the phenomenology, processes and coping mechanisms of people suffering from psychosis, using a broadly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach (Drury, Birchwood, & Cochrane, 2000; Haddock, Morrison, Hopkins, Lewis, & Tarrier, 1998; Kuipers et al., 1998; Morrison, 2002; Norman & Townsend, 1999). Some practitioners advocate that CBT is the most appropriate, evidence based approach (Tarrier, Haddock, Barrowclough, & Wykes, 2002). Other practitioners, including psychiatrists, psychologists and nurses have developed a broader based alliance of therapeutic approaches to psychosis from the spectrum of approaches from psychodynamic to cognitive behavioural (Martindale & International Society for the Psychological Treatments of the Schizophrenias and other Psychoses., 2000). Radical changes have also been taking place amongst psychiatrists (Kingdon & Turkington, 1998; Perris & McGorry, 1998), who are now paying closer attention to the meaning and content of the voices (Romme & Escher, 1989).

Peace be with you


I believe our intuition is always correct – always! – But, I also believe our interpretation of that intuition is often flawed. I mean flawed as in “flawed logic.” We put so much energy postulating the virtues of logic we completely forget, if it exists, a most powerful way of understanding.

This understanding is called many things – gut feeling, spider senses, intuition, Wisdom. Wisdom is different from smart. It perceives things that logic can’t prove. It is when you hear all the facts and you listen to the logical conclusion, but you know deep down that something isn’t right. Usually a little digging in the facts and your feelings are justified.

I think logic is a wonderful thing to learn. In fact I think all Wise people would see the Wisdom in studying logic. The logical however, never see the logic in studying Wisdom. Their problem is that Wisdom is like gravity it comes from some unknown, and that strikes fearfully close to past demons from some traumatic religious dogma.

I believe in evolution, that people are truly born of this Earth. I hold true that I do suckle at the tit of my Mother Earth. I also hold true I have my Wisdom, my Courage, and my Love because of my Heavenly Father; who took me as a child of my Mother and taught me the ways of my Father.

It is only me who can remove the distractions, the lusts and the fears, which blind me from simple truths. It is only me who can follow the truths I see. And it is only my relationship with the Father and Mother I can have. We will eventually evolve into a people more like perfection. Compassion, Generosity, Loving Kindness are the gift to the Human Animal; or shall I say higher evolved Peoples.

Humboldt County Supervisor uses preemptive censorship.

Peace be with you



At Tuesday's Humboldt County Board of Supervisor's meeting Phillip Crandall once again succeeded in getting the Humboldt County Board of Supes to approve an agreement based on fraudulent information. Humboldt County department of Mental Health signed an agreement worth $4,038,544 based on grossly overestimated numbers of mentally ill. So outrageous are his guestimates that he's looking to hook 30,000 Humboldt county residents on deadly anti-psychotics through his CalMAP experimental mental health county.

My real issue is whether this "agreement," which "contains the entire agreement of the parties and supersedes all negotiations, verbal or otherwise and any other agreement between the parties," and is based on Humboldt County's Mental Health Services Act Three-year Program and Expenditure Plan, is related to the above-mentioned plan and the unanimously Supe approved policy behind the plan.

Jill Geist the new neo-liberal chair of the Humboldt County board of Supes believes she has the authority to censor my public comment. Jill is a big supporter of our experimental mental health grants. Jill has tried before to censor me and she has even gone as far as to have Crandall rehearse a little speech during public comment. The next week a young lady showed up at the board of supes pissed off that Geists placed Crandall's speech on the agenda with out public notice.


Geist, and all the supes for that matter, are putting their political asses on the line to protect the highest paid employee of the County, HHS DIRECTOR, Phillip Crandall, and his rope 'em and dope 'em policies. Crandall who controls the counties Health and Human Services Department (spends half of all the money from our budget), is the department head that is responsible for both the fraudulent lies in the plan and brokers agreements to spend a quarter of our counties budget on a "mental health policy" that rivals Heinrich Himmler. Crandall's policy is uncannily similar to Himmler's "struggle for the extermination of any sub-humans," complete with $250,000 a year psychiatrists.

Why does Humboldt County spend a quarter of its money hooking people on mental health drugs?

Peace be with you.








Whistleblower magazine released an article titled, "MANIA; The shocking link between psychiatric drugs, suicide, violence and mass murder." It mentions that these nut pills create this "mania" in 4% of short term trial patients. Also they list the following examples:


Andrea Yates, in one of the most heartbreaking crimes in modern history, drowned all five of her children aged 7 years down to 6 months in a bathtub. Insisting inner voices commanded her to kill her kids, she had become increasingly psychotic over the course of several years.
Yates had been taking the antidepressant Effexor. In November 2005, more than four years after Yates drowned her children, Effexor manufacturer Wyeth Pharmaceuticals quietly added "homicidal ideation" to the drug's list of "rare adverse events." But "rare" is defined by the FDA as occurring in less than one in 1,000 people. And since, according to an Associated Press report, about 19.2 million prescriptions for Effexor were filled in the U.S. alone in 2005, that means statistically almost 20,000 Americans could experience "homicidal ideation" that is, murderous thoughts as a result of taking just this one antidepressant drug.


Columbine mass-killer Eric Harris was taking the widely prescribed antidepressant Luvox when he and fellow student Dylan Klebold went on a hellish school shooting rampage in 1999, killing 12 students and a teacher and wounding 24 others before turning their guns on themselves.


Authorities investigating Cho Seung-Hui, who murdered 32 at Virginia Tech in April, reportedly found "prescription drugs" for the treatment of psychological problems among his possessions. Joseph Aust, Cho's roommate, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch Cho's routine each morning had included taking prescription drugs.
So what kind of meds had Cho been taking? Strangely, his medical records have yet to be released to the public authorities claiming it's because an investigation is still ongoing, although critics suggest the purpose may be to protect the drug companies from liability claims.


Meanwhile, the list of killers who happened to be taking psychiatric medications is long and chilling. Remember these headline names?


Patrick Purdy's 1989 schoolyard shooting rampage in Stockton, Calif., was the catalyst for the legislative frenzy to ban "semiautomatic assault weapons" in California and the nation. The 25-year-old Purdy, who murdered five children and wounded 30, had been on Amitriptyline, an antidepressant, as well as the antipsychotic drug Thorazine.


Kip Kinkel, 15, murdered his parents in 1998 and the next day went to his school, Thurston High in Springfield, Ore., and opened fire on his classmates, killing two and wounding 22 others. He had been prescribed both Prozac and Ritalin.


In 1988, 31-year-old Laurie Dann went on a shooting rampage in a second-grade classroom in Winnetka, Ill., killing one child and wounding six. She had been taking the antidepressant Anafranil as well as Lithium, long used to treat mania.


In Paducah, Ky., in late 1997, 14-year-old Michael Carneal, son of a prominent attorney, traveled to Heath High School and started shooting students in a prayer meeting taking place in the school's lobby, killing three and leaving another paralyzed. Carneal reportedly was on Ritalin.


In 2005, 16-year-old Native American Jeff Weise, living on Minnesota's Red Lake Indian Reservation, shot and killed nine people and wounded five others before killing himself. Weise had been taking Prozac.


In another famous case, 47-year-old Joseph T. Wesbecker, just a month after he began taking Prozac, shot 20 workers at Standard Gravure Corp. in Louisville, Ky., killing nine. Eli Lilly, which makes Prozac, later settled a lawsuit brought by survivors.



I wonder if the psychiatrists of today and the psychiatrists of Nazi Germany are really all that different.

Police use "dope raid" to net illegal sleeping

Peace be with you


On July 25, 2007 Sheriff Deputies raided a piece of Humboldt County property looking for pot. They stuck guns in the faces of the residents, pepper sprayed their dogs, and ordered the people off their property so a search could conduct. No I’m not talking about the 1200 pot plant Vilica LLd bust. I’m talking about the Yee Haw bust where instead of finding the pot, the cops were so sure they’d find, they found "sleepers" instead. Now appearing as Nazish homeless haters the county is trying to throw these people to the street. The County of Humboldt should be encouraging people to open their homes, lands and buildings to help alleviate the homeless crisis; instead they’re encouraging police raids on those who do.

Monday the owner of the property and at least one of it’s tenants will be in Humboldt Superior Court to try to hang on to their place of living, or as we call it their home.

Sources inside Yee Haw say the Sheriffs acted like they were searching for marijuana, and of course we have the Vilica marijuana bust the same day with the same “code enforcement warrant.” Twelve Sheriffs with guns drawn served a county “code enforcement warrant” on the very day the owner of the land had an appointment with county code enforcement to inspect the land. It would appear on the surface as a paranoid county building inspector until you plug in the fact that they also served a “code enforcement warrant” looking for 1200 marijuana plants within a couple of hours of leaving Yee Haw.

First of all it is fucked up that we allow the county to kick these people off a place where it is legal for them to sleep. And second it is fucked up that they are doing it because of a pot bust gone bad.

Peace be with you

I constantly hear people say, “But you chose to be homeless.” No you fucking idiot, nobody! NO-BO-DY! I REPEAT NOBODY!, chooses to become homeless. It doesn’t take too long being homeless to know things are way fucked up down here. The law says you can be homeless, the law also says you can’t sleep, and the cops damn well know you'll break the law.

Fuck that shit! People sleep and they're going keep doing it. They have to or they'll die! You put on top of that all the shit from the angry bigots, having to eat FEMA food in a soup kitchens, having to to sleep in the rain, in the cold, in the mosquitoes, etc, being refused bathrooms when you got to shit your pants, having medical care only in emergencies, being blamed for every bothersome complaint no matter how large or small, being called crazy because you bother the merchants, being micro-case managed by money-hungry poverty-pimps who learned in school how it is to be homeless, watching billions of dollars being given to grant-whores “to solve homelessness” only to see children with only those chemically white bead slices to eat for super, being constantly afraid for you life, having to do the dirtiest, most demeaning jobs to survive, having no place to go, being run out of town by the cops and their quislings, and you’re being asked all the while to give up your dignity.

So why are people surprised that, after numerous kicks in the balls, some houseless persons might say “fuck-you!;” or take on the bigots for their bullshit; or find innovative way's to feed themselves healthy food; or insure they have shelter; or learn that their diet controls their bowels and cleaning up after themselves; or become responsible for their own health; or refute the bullshit “blame the houseless” propaganda; or know that calling a group crazy, in this ever narrowing definition of “norm,” is as much bullshit today as it was when Hitler used it as an excuse to genocide; or see that they are not a “case” and therefore have no need of managing; or expose the funding slight of hand that is so fucking blatant when witnessed by the aid actually given; or feed one-another; or realize that fear is their enemy; or stand their ground; or demand their place in community; or turn that given up dignity space into selflessness, into the best of the human spirit, into words which expose the truth - into "the chosen?" Fuckin A.

No, I didn’t choose to be homeless - that happened - I chose to stay and struggle for those you so like to oppress! All men peoples were created equal, it's just some ain't got no land. I want my land back.

City of Arcata starve homeless for Stillman's view

Peace be with you

view out Stillman's 9th and H property


The Arcata [Sh]ity council has canceled the lease on the $460,000 Arcata Endeavor Services Center and the Eureka Times Standard speaks of “possible impact.” It makes one ask why these “hippy-dippy” progressives attack the poor so ruthlessly? The answer is simply that the Arcata City Council is a bunch of fascist neo-liberals. When I served as a member of the Arcata Emergency Shelter and Homeless Services Plan Task Force (AESHSPTF), emergency shelter and homeless services were ignored, and kicking the homeless out of Arcata became the sole focus due to intense business pressure. Alex “Leona Helmsly” Stillman, the biggest landlord on the Arcata plaza, and now Vice mayor led the fight, to shit on the down and out.

A quick background: The Arcata Endeavor was started in 1983, and was hosted by the Arcata Presbyterian Church. In 1997 the Endeavor obtained non-profit status, and worked with the City of Arcata to get two $35,000 “study,” and one $490,000 “construction” State Community Development Block Grants (CDBG). The “Arcata Service Center,” the Endeavor, was built in 1999 to “empower people as they work to remove barriers to success in their lives.” These “locally utilized taxes," CDBGs, came with so many “requirements” that they hardly could be “implementing our own solution to a local problem.” And the worst requirement was that the beloved City of Arcata was to hold the lease on the property obtained for the poor.

The “idea” of removing the poor from the poor’s building first became public during the AESHSPTF meetings. Downtown merchants, landlords, and “Members of Arcata Downtown Main Street Program,” started complaining that the entirety of the problems that happen in “their downtown” happens because some take pity on the hungered. This “lobbying group” had COMPLEAT control of the AESHSPTF’s $37,500 consultants. Alex Stillman and her mainstreet boys managed to get push polls, media distortion, censorship, and the “idea” introduced that the CDBG homeless building should not have it’s one dollar a year lease renewed.

In order for Alex Stillman to get money through CDBGs to repair, improve and refaced her own buildings the City of Arcata had to throw a bone (the Endeavor) to the poor people they would be gentrifying. Now Stillman’s numerous plaza buildings have new foundations, roofs, and facades, so the illusion that she gives a shit about anybody but herself goes and the poor suffer.

Alex Stillman’s long public campaign to rid the downtown business interests of “transients” is well known. Stillman advocates that homeless attracted to the Endeavor cost her and her mainstreet boys money (i.e. INTEREST), and that the Endeavor must go (i.e. CONFLICT). Stillman, a city council member with clear conflict of interest, both created a quorum and voted on April 4, 2007 to throw the poor out. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye devour widow’s houses, and for a pretense make long prayer.”

Eureka Police Department claims Tasers are Safe. Bullshit!

Peace be with you

"A deer dance, invitation to peace
war staring you in the face, dressed in black
with a helmet, fierce
trained and appropriate for the malcontents
for the disproportioned malcontents.
The little boy smiled, it'll all be well
The little boy smiled, it'll all be well
Pushing little children
with their fully automatics

System of a Down




You know how the Eureka Reporter puts a picture under the main headline that has nothing to do with the main headline, but leads one to suspect things that aren't really there? Todays headline was: "$1 SETTLEMENTS OFFERED" over a picture about EPD's new taser lust. This reminded me of the pepper spray victory and the following YouTube videos.

video video


video video

EPD Chief "POP-'em" Nielsen claims “You would use the Taser before the baton.” Isn't a baton a pain compliance weapon? Cops don't use batons for self defense they use them to move and corral people. Both Criminally Negligent Homicide suspect, and taser guru, Tony Zanotti and Chief "POP-'em" assure us tasers have no known medical problems. Zanotti even compares his henchmen's taser use with medical doctors use of a defibrillator like there's some equality in professionalism between a cop trying to kill someone and a doctor trying to save someone. The Reporter didn't need to look far to find an injury though, Robert Owens, a Vietnam vet who got tasered in Crescent City for "just standing there," claims "[his] heart was fine before [the tazering] happened.” Too bad POP-'em and his posse couldn't debate taser safety with the over 150 people killed by tasers.

The UN calls tasers torture, and I agree. I remember when the Arcata Police tasered a drunk to make him get up! Then there's the person who got tasered on the plaza which resulted in a "we didn't do anything wrong but we changed our policy" declaration from Randy Mendosa of the ADP. And of course we mustn't forget David Cleveland who, after being tasered by sheriffs at the Garberville station, died at Humboldt County jail.

Should we trust Eureka's cowboy cops with pain compliance weapons they falsely believe "ain't gonna hurt ya?" Fuck no! Judging from the way they beat Martin Cotton to death with their fists and batons makes me sure that we are in for a lot of recreational zapping. Giving cattle prods to the SS is a tried and true method to bring more deaths by EPD on the horizon.

Humboldt County Board of Supes squanders $82,000 in homeless funds

Peace be with you.

“There must come a day
When a box is not somebody's home
The unfinished work of our heroes
Must truly be our own
We can't let the future become our past
If we are to change the world
Won't you tell me
Tell me please
How many miles must we march”

Ben Harper



The Humboldt County “tax and misappropriate” Board of Supes today graciously gave the homeless $82,000 dollars of your tax money. Well not really the homeless. Actually it is for more office equipment. In related news The Arcata Endeavor Homeless “Services” Center was purchased with $560,000 dollars of funds for the Homeless (even had a ribbon cutting ceremony), and Stillman and her quislings on the Arcata City Council are throwing the poor out of their last real service in Arcata. Why are these “homeless funds” going into temporal buildings, office furniture, and salaries instead of food and shelter?

Back in 1995 the Republicans took control of the Congress and Senate. Part of their "contract on America" was “ending welfare.” That was not a party platform; it was Friedman Economics that gave a cut off date for all welfare recipients. This tough love of the bankers was to take the money used to feed and shelter poor people and instead use it to motivate people to retrain and enter the work-force - To compete for jobes that weren’t there to begin with.

As welfare recipients went through newly required “job skill classes” an entire field of employment became created. Soon private companies began or expanded “training schools” for all kinds of employable skills. Coordinating the welfare-to-work required “caseworkers,” and caseworker's needed office furniture, buildings, cars, computers, etc. A new jobe market was created around using the poor as a corporate commodity. “Poverty pimp” be came a term.

Soon high wage jobes were being “outsourced” by another Friedman school of thought, NAFTA. As ex-high wage workers had to have two or three jobes in order to try to hang on to their mortgages, the government offered to pay wages to any employer who would hire a welfare recipient. The problem was that as one person got a jobe another lost one.

Welfare to work policies without substantial jobe growth made homelessness numbers began to rise, and studies were commissioned. The Urban Institute (think-tankers of spatial decentralization) studied homelessness in two cities through government homeless services. Though I have not read anything that convinces they learned shit about homelessness, in keeping in the Friedman spirit they claimed 50% of the services were used by 10% of the homeless. They made the claim that these 10%, whom they called the “chronic homeless,” were physically incapable of holding a jobe by virtue of a disability.

As Bush jr. spoke at the 2000 Republican convention he said “in the next bold step of welfare reform, we will support the heroic work of homeless shelters . . . food pantries." He then got appointed president by the Supreme Court and started the “chronic homeless initiative.” The chronic homeless initiative took 90% of the already bare-bones homeless funds, and spent them exclusively to end “chronic homelessness.” Case-manager jobes got created and homeless food, shelter and hygiene facilities started disappearing. Again the case-workers need of better office furniture got fulfilled and the basic sustenance needed by the homeless went unmet.

Homeless funds start as your federal tax payments. Then the feds (not to be confused with your federal government the “feds” are the private bank known as the Federal Reserve) give the homeless funds to the state IF, and ONLY IF, they implement the “chronic homeless initiative,” and all its policies. The State in turn add a required amount of state tax payments, siphon off a larger amount for “maintaining” the program, and allocate what’s left to the Counties according to how well they implement the “chronic homeless initiative” along with additional State policies. These payments are called “grants.” And “Grant Whore” too became a term.

The homeless being just numbers on a chart to Washington the case managers in the beginning were able to open “case files” on millions of homeless who didn’t fit the definition of “chronic homeless.” They then utilized these fabricated cases, along with their newly self-proclaimed “authority” to justify their ever growing voracious money lust. Grants fund studies, salaries, studies of the studies, salaries, plans, salaries, task forces, salaries, offices, salaries, consultants, salaries, and of course an $82,000 “Homeless Management Information System.” Shelter is full or unavailable everywhere in the county, and the scant food is mostly donated, prepared by the homeless and other volunteers. The only two places case managers have that they can send homeless is to the welfare office or the mental health department, and the homeless could probably find those on their own.

This is an incomplete telling of the tale, because others like police, private security companies, and mental health also profit on the backs of the homeless and poor in general. Don’t believe that welfare reform saved you any money; it just change the occasional welfare queen into the common corporate welfare of poverty pimps and grant whores, and more people on the streets then ever before . In fact, if you disregard the fact that case managers and their needs cost us way more then welfare ever did, you still see an increase by the growing number of cop-hours devoted to driving homeless into the waiting nets of the case managers.

Will Humboldt County mass drug everyone?

Peace be with you.

Fluoxetine hydrochloride, also known as Prozac, contains mostly fluoride! Would you advocate drugging the entire population with Paxil or Prozac? Yet, “both drugs contain fluorine and chloride . . . [as] part of the 'active' ingredient.” Why are we not drinking safe fluoride free water? As medicines go, fluoride is forced medication in the biggest way. Even Scientologists can’t escape bathing in fluoride.

Humboldt County wants to fluoridate at the source. This is mass drugging at an enormous scale. Currently the towns of McKinleyville and Manila are free from this forced medication, but soon the neo-water will be doped. In Eureka and Arcata you must figure out how to get this poison out of your own water.

Some, like Ann Lindsay, really believe in this societal manipulation. Fluoridating everyone is extremely controversial to say the least and that in and of itself should prevent that kind of government intrusion. You can’t force me to take a medication against my will, and if avoidance of water is the only path you leave for me to pursue, IT IS FORCE!

If you’re worried about your kid’s teeth then reduce the sugar and phosphoric acid laced soda pops. If that is too much parenting for you don’t worry NAMI and NIMH want kids as young as 5 years old to be on SSRIs - so their fluoride is coming.

Humboldt Mental Health to Start a Round-up

Peace be with you


“ I have had the vans of Einsatzgruppe
(Mobile Death Units) D disguised as
house trailers”

Dr. Becke SS Untersturmfuehrer 16.May.1942


Today Humboldt County went from Ken Kesey’s magic bus to Phillip Crandall’s Black Magic Bus. The devil got wheels in the form of the Phillip Crandall Mobile Drugging Unit. He’s hunting down Children, Elderly, Vets, People of Color, Homeless, anyone deemed a “problem,” and Dissenters. Phillip Crandall falsely claims 80% of the homeless are wing-nuts and 30,000 of YOU Humboldt residents are fucking nuts too. And YOU all need the PILL!

The Humboldt County Mental Health Department put on the Board of Supervisor’s Agenda the following:

“Transfer Funds to Fixed Asset Account and Approve the Budget Appropriation Transfer for Mental Health Branch Budget Unit 1179-477, Mental Health Services Act”

“What the fuck is that!” you might ask? Unit 1179-477 just happens to be a “$205,007.84 . . . recreational vehicle . . . for the provision of mental health services.” The agenda item was concealment.

You had better wake up! 30,000 of you mean one out of every fourth person is to be doped! Look around and ask yourself "are one out of four of the people you see during the day crazy enough to take drugs that were only meant to be used in the most severe cases?" Look around and ask yourself “do they really need drugs that make them become a “danger” if they fail to take them, for what ever reason?" Ask yourself “do they deserve a life sentence of diabetes, heart disease, impotency, psychosis, and suicidility?” And, ask yourself “who’s next?”

Humboldt County Pushes Suicide Through Drugs

Peace be with you.

As our fame goes from Humboldt skunk weed to Humboldt nut pills some confirming facts have recently been presented. It seems as our available “mental health” funds increase, so do our suicides. And the top cheerleader for “dope your loved ones,” Lea Nagy, has insulted our intelligence once again with a “my word” times standard propaganda piece.

Lea Nagy is an employee of Humboldt county mental health, and a “board member” of the Pharmaceutical Corporation sponsored front-group Nami . Nagy believes in forcing dangerous pharmaceuticals on people because it is how she makes her living. She would advocate blood letting if psychiatrists still were allowed to perform that particular form of torture.

Robert Jay Likton makes clear in his book The Nazi Doctors that is was Nazi Psychiatrists who implemented and carried out all the Holocaust deaths from the first handicapped child to the Jews they ordered shot as the Nazi psychiatrists fled the allies. It wasn’t the Nazis per se who killed 12 million innocent people, it was their Psychiatrists. Likewise it isn’t the Namis who are responsible for all the deaths and destroyed lives caused by modern Psychiatrists. The difference between the Nazis and the Namis is the former utilized gas and the later pills.

The goal of the Nazi murderers was to eliminate, enslave, or prevent reproduction of the poor which they referred to as “undesirables.” Anti-psychotics shorten lives, creates willingness to work for free, and they cause sexual dysfunction. It may be a bit slower, besides the occasional suicide at the back door of Humboldt’s mental health department, oh yea and a few dozen school shootings, and people killing their entire family, also people waving flare guns around, and . . . well you get the point, but there is not as many bodies to get rid of as say a Todeslager (extermination camp). Plus there is the US Government’s favorite euphemism of “plausible deniability,” “we didn’t kill ‘em it was their choice.” One only needs to read Nagy’s nagging to realize how Nazi like coerciveness is use to force “voluntary treatment.”

In the late 1800’s Jean-Martin Charcot invented “hysteria.” This was the first so-called “mental illness.” Today the Psychiatrists have 360 unique “mental illnesses” which unlike real illness, have no physical proof (no blood test, biopsy, post-mortem, brain scan, or other real scientific proof of an illness). They invent and retire these “illnesses” at will. Hysteria, Drapetomania, and Homosexuality are three examples of where psychiatrists ruined people’s lives and health only to recant later. Video game addiction is one of the new classifications that were “voted” on by the AMA. Imagine voting on if small pox is a disease or not. What the fuck kind of science is that? It’s the same kind of science they use to put you on nut pills that give you diabetes, that require another pill that gives you heart disease, that require another pill that renders you impotent, but don’t worry they have a pill for that too.

The drug companies have pushed a “brain chemistry” theory to justify brain chemistry changing drugs as “cures” for “mental illness.” It’s been thirty years since they can up with this theory and they have yet to prove any relationship between brain chemistry and the onset of any "mental illness.” Their theory holds that because sometimes brain chemistry changing drugs cause a slight improvement in a few symptoms of certain ambiguous “mental illness” diagnoses mental illness must be a lack of brain chemicals. This theory doesn’t explain why anti-psychotics which change the “brain chemistry” in a couple of hours take weeks before they change behavior.

Humboldt County’s Medication Algorithm Program (MAP) guarantees that individuals who depend on public assistance for mental health insurance will be doped. Atypical-anti-psychotics (the pills that cause diabetes) are the first level of treatment in the MAP. The Map program is claimed to use what is called “Evidence Based Best Practices.” “Evidence Based Best Practices” is newspeak, formed by opinions, not data and “most of the guideline’s authors have received support from the pharmaceutical industry.” Again we have pharmaceutical corporations buying “votes” on how what was voted an illness should be treated.

The sad fact of this “marketing campaign” by Nagy and her cohorts at Nami and the Mental Health department is that people who need help don’t get it. Instead they get a life sentence of some of the world’s most deadly dope. Dope which increases suicidality no less.

On October 24, 1933 the Nazis passed a law against "Habitual and Dangerous Criminals" that justified placing the homeless, beggars, unemployed, and alcoholics in concentration camps. Today we have the “New Freedom Initiative” which justifies placing the same groups, along with children on killer nut pills. It may be an improvement in effectiveness, but it is the same death as the camps brought.
