Heart of Darkness: Fox News Accused Of Malevolent Spying and Harassment On Andrea Tantaros

I can’t cover but a fraction of what passes across my screen or consciousness at The Truth Barrier, but I want to publicly support the women who are exposing the dark underbelly of Fox News. Is it “biased” to state that you “believe every word of it?” No. I don’t think so. I’m well seasoned in […]

Macron and Le Pen: At Least Know This

“At Least Know This,” was a concept my father and I hatched together about 20 years ago, but never “developed.”  I would (and still do) often ask my father–who I did not grow up with– sweeping questions, mostly about World War 2, which he began following closely by short wave radio as a boy in […]

Young, White, And Dead in America: When Will It End?

[Text by Celia Farber] They aren’t trendy, purple haired, tattooed and pierced, gay or transgender, officially oppressed,  or getting triggered on a college campus somewhere; They have no functioning anger to deploy, and if they did, nobody would fake-love them for it. They don’t have that kind of middle or upper middle class political energy. […]

Easter, Not A Huge Success

  Because it struck me on Easter morning, on what would have been my fourth day as a proper Catholic, I was sure it was an attack from Satan personally. I’m self-important that way, in my imagination. I was extremely weak, nauseated, eyes were hard to open or see with,  and I felt like a […]

What Is “Non Violent Communication?” Is It Soft and Infuriating?

I’ve posted about Marshall Rosenberg before, the creator of NVC (Non-Violent Communication) who divided all language into “Jackal” language (dominant, accusatory, carrying deeply concealed needs) and “Giraffe” (deeply hearing, translucent, expressive of needs and feelings, but not to be mistaken for “gentle,” which can also be Jackal in disguise.) Rosenberg used to joke that he […]

Catholicism, Communism, and Back

I walked into my (Jewish) father’s bedroom, where he and his wife were sitting up in bed, watching the news, last night. I had just come from Thursday Night mass, and felt overcome with emotion. I don’t write any of this to alienate or “trigger” any of my atheist readers. I told them I have […]

“Totally unbeknownst to his mother, Bently received a staggering 13 vaccinations that day, including two triple doses of DTap, Hepatitis B, a polio shot, three oral rotavirus doses, and a pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine. It was all compressed into three shots and one oral dose. It took the nurses half an hour to prepare all the […]

A Searing, Brilliant Summation Of America’s Chemical Vaccine Warfare By Liam Scheff, R.I.P

I had not listened to this before. I am extremely grateful he left behind so many spoken word pieces, like this one, through which he lives on. The way Liam channelled the whole “story,” and everybody in it, and all the angles of the trap, all the countless attacks, and all the ways in which […]

Home Alone

Staying overnight at my father’s tonight, I imagined Jack reassuring Lewis, as he is five years older. Lewis: She’s not home yet. Jack: She’s fine. She’s probably at Grandpa’s.

Staging The News, Selling The Wars

  Note: I have problems with this video. The production, especially the music is heavy-handed. Rather like…propaganda music. But it opens some very important cans of worms. Who pays for RT? To what end? See what I mean? There is no such thing as non-propaganda anymore, unless you saw it with your own eyes. And […]

A Subtly Heartbreaking Headline About The Trump Family

It is a known phenomenon that fathers will choose one daughter for excessive admiration, leaving the other, or others,  to grow up in a cold, cold shadow. It is one of my pet peeves, fathers who do this. It’s horrid. Trump has done this, to Ivanka and Tiffany. Both are, in very different ways, victims. […]

I Don’t Trust Trump, But I Know Who My Friends Were Not [A Facebook Post, To Be Elaborated On]

I don’t trust Donald Trump one iota, but instead of being engineered to “hate” him from the outset, I took my time.

Robert Crumb, On The Myth Of The Counterculture Feminist Man

“The hippie culture of Haight-Ashbury, where it all started for me, was full of men doing nothing all day and expecting women to bring them food.

“The Gaia [theory] is not, as many claim, that ‘the Earth is a single organism.’ Yet the Earth, in the biological sense, has a body sustained by complex physiological processes.

It means, from […]

The fact that those close to Clinton are engaged in such disturbing rituals should cause concern to any American who doesn’t view carving […]

How To Replenish Dopamine Naturally

“If you interfere with nature.

Havel’s Masterpiece: The Anatomy of Hate

Editor’s note: I think this may be the single greatest essay ever written. Nothing else I am aware of is a more comprehensive confession of why and how we succumb to hatred.
