Photographic Memory

Photographic Memory

Pop culture tells us that some people have photographic memories. What’s the real story? by Brian Dunning via skeptoid Remember when you were a kid and there was always someone in your class who claimed to have a photographic memory? If you believed it, as many children tend to do, you were probably both impressed and jealous. Then by the time you got older, you’d heard of people with savantism, and champions in memory contests, and people who could remember every day of their lives; and you probably wished that you too could have a photographic or eidetic memory. Well how would you feel if I told you that there might not be any such thing as those abilities? That’s not to say that nobody has extraordinary or unusual memory prowess. Some do, and we’ll talk about those; but what we want to focus on today is the idea that some people have the pop-culture version of a “photographic memory” that we’ve all heard about, which sounds a bit like a superpower. They can, at will, call to mind the page of a book they’ve read, a license plate they saw, a long string of numbers, what have you; and simply read it off that image in their mind’s eye as if they’re seeing it live. What makes this such a great thing is that it doesn’t seem to come with any cost. They are not otherwise developmentally disabled, and haven’t had to trade other cognitive or behavioral functioning. This is the version of “photographic memory” that so many of us grew up believing in: the superpower version.

Trump’s Victory: A Historical Upset

Trump’s Victory: A Historical Upset

I have to admit it. I fully did NOT expect Donald Trump to become the 45th President of the United States of America. All of the odds were against him: He was underfunded compared to Hillary’s money machine; Nearly every media source was openly against him; Not one major celebrity came out to support him; He was labbeled a racist and a misogynist; All leading figures of his own party abandoned him; Much of his policies were in direct opposition with the aims of the globalist elite; Robert DeNiro said he wanted to punch him in the face.Despite all of this, Trump won. While Hillary had the entire establishment behind her – including elite organizations such as the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations – she did not win. How did this happen? Is this a ‘rebellion against the elite’ as some journalists claimed … or it the elite placing the perfect fall guy for things to come? One thing is for sure, one voice was heard loudly: Conservative White people from rural areas. Looking at the electoral map, Trump won nearly 100% of the areas corresponding to this demographic. Did they feel that their current government pandered to every possible minority while leaving them out to dry? Did they feel that the liberal values promoted by the Democrats went too far against their Conservative outlook? Did they feel that the American ‘race’ was being diluted by a steady stream of illegal immigrants? Did they reject the tolerant attitude of the government versus Islam? Answering yes to any combination of these questions lead to a vote for Trump.Visceral While media around the world writes pages upon pages analyzing the results of this election, one single word could sum up the entire thing: “Visceral”. Trump’s electorate had a visceral reaction to Trump and an opposite visceral reaction to Clinton. Electing Trump was a move that came from the guts and the instincts rather than rational calculations. Trump never engaged into complex policies or presented spreadsheets full of numbers. He simply represented, by who he was, the opposite of things his voters were clearly sick of seeing. Trump was at odds with the ‘liberal agenda’ in mass media, with internalization of borders citizenship, with political correctness, with ‘social justice warriors’ and with the agenda of globalist forces (he even brought up George Soros by name during the campaign). Trump did not promise numbers and new policies as much as he promised to rid America from things he describes as parasitic, whether it be big government, illegal aliens, foreign countries requiring aid, etc. This provoked a visceral positive reaction from a demographic base whose motto could easily be “Get off my lawn or I’ll shoot ya”. What Now? That being said, will Trump truly deliver on his promises? The one who described himself as ‘not a politician’ has become a politician. And, as you might know, what is said on the campaign trail often differ greatly to what actually happens in government. Do you remember when Obama promised to shut down Guantanamo Bay over eight years ago? Well, after two mandates, that did not happen. Not even close. Will Trump actually build a wall? Will he deport millions of illegal immigrants? Will he block Muslims from entering the USA? Many of his promises were clearly unconstitutional. Entities such as the Senate, the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court can easily shut down any policy that does not pass their tests. A few historical facts however give Trump unprecedented power: The Republicans control all three branches of governments and Trump is set to nominate a Supreme Court judge. Things to Watch For While Trump appeared to be at odds with the world elite, he will still most likely be used to advance its agenda. The entire American population, especially those who voted for him, need to remain vigilant and always question the true agenda behind new policies. Here are things to watch for. First, the promotion of a ‘race war’ is something that has been going on for years and Trump might be used to push that agenda further. Leaders from Black and White communities have been riling up their bases and various movements have been gaining steam. The racial nature of Trump’s policies might set things ablaze. Next, Trump often emphasized the notion of ‘law and order’ when addressing issues in urban areas. We do not need to go too far in the past to see totalitarian regimes devolving from ‘law and order’ to outright ‘police state’ after an important event. Also, the totalitarian tendencies displayed by Trump’s attitude and vocabulary during the campaign might be used to steer America towards an ugly fascist place. Finally, some observers are already wondering if the elite will ‘punish’ the United States with an engineered economic crisis or something of the sorts. Trump’s election combined with the UK’s unexpected and anti-globalist Brexit means that the two most powerful economic powers of the world have taken a ‘rogue’ path. They might be forced towards the ‘right way’ by the world elite using painful economic methods. Trump’s victory is therefore an unexpected yet historic event. While it can be interpreted as a slap to the political elite’s face, it also opens a path to a world of uncertainty. A Clinton presidency would have been extremely predictable and in perfect continuation with the previous administration. Conversely, it is extremely difficult to predict which direction a Trump presidency will go. One thing is for sure, the same shadow government that has been ruling the country (and the world) for decades, is still there. And the ‘chaos’ factor of Trump might very well play in their favor.Source link

“Pizzagate”: How 4Chan Uncovered the Sick World of Washington’s Occult Elite

“Pizzagate”: How 4Chan Uncovered the Sick World of Washington’s Occult Elite

Posters over at 4Chan and Reddit have been conducting an extremely bizarre investigation following the John Podesta e-mail leak (Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman) and the results are surreal: They’ve apparently uncovered an elite child trafficking network which celebrates its tendencies using code words and disturbing artworks.Warning: This article contains disturbing material In my article Clinton’s Campaign Chairman John Podesta Invited to an Occult ‘Spirit Cooking’ Dinner by Marina Abramović, I explained how a mundane dinner invitation found in the Podesta e-mail leaks was actually a clear link to bizarre occult ceremonies happening at the highest levels of power. While that by itself was rather shocking, it appears to only be the tip of a very disgusting iceberg. 4Chan effectively unearthed a strange network of high-powered people who, through art, events and social media, actually celebrate a culture that revolves around death, torture, cannibalism and … child abuse. Most of this disturbing material was not even hidden, it was out there in the open, exposed on business’ walls and posted on social media. Furthermore, an analysis of the Podesta e-mails revealed that the network appeared to communicate using code words to coverup their shady dealings.The epicenter of this entire thing is, believe or not, a hipster pizza place named Comet Ping Pong. Comet Ping Pong Comet Ping Pong is a ‘family friendly’ pizzeria where people can eat, drink and play ping-pong.The Comet Ping Pong menu contains a logo that is strikingly similar to the ‘child lover’ logo used in these circles. Also, Play Eat Drink = PED.The owner of Comet Ping Pong is James Alefantis who is, for some reason, ranked #49 in the top 50 ‘Most Powerful People in Washington’ of GQ magazine.Alefantis as featured on the GQ website. He is described as ‘D.C. Radical Chic’.Alefantis’ boyfriend is David Brock, the founder of liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America. He was described by Time magazine to be “one of the most influential operatives in the Democratic Party”. The power couple was heavily involved in Hillary Clinton’s campaign.An invitation to a Clinton fundraising event featuring ‘Chef James Alefantis of Comet Ping Pong’, Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta and others.Here’s an e-mail sent by Alefantis to John Podesta.A leaked John Podesta e-mail from James Alefantis sending Hillary’s ‘pizza logo’. Alefantis is therefore in direct connection with some of the most powerful people in the world.In short, Alefantis is very connected to very powerful people. Now let’s look at his Instagram account, which was publicly accessible until 4Chan began prying in. The account is filled with bizarre and disturbing pictures – often involving small children. Here are some examples (I can’t even post them all).A young girl with her arms taped to a table with a man standing behind her. One of the comments say “This is pretty creepy bro.” This is beyond creepy bro.A young girl inside a basket … as if she was about to be bought. Many pictures allude to buying and owning children while preying on this innocence.A closeup picture of another baby. Alefantis’s (aka jimmycomet) posted #hotard – which is slang for ‘being a ho and a retard’. Yes, he posted this next to the picture of an INFANT.Another strange pic involving a child and a weirdly placed yellow beads necklace. Also, notice the hashtag #chickenlovers.Here’s a definition of ‘chicken lover’ found with a basic web search.A pic of a German baby doll for sale. Buying babies appears to be an important hobby.“Pills n’ bills” before a trip. The comment ‘Ping Pong in London sounds tempting’ is obviously code for something else.A picture posted by the barman at Comet Ping Pong. It heavily alludes to the fact that ‘pizza’ means something else in their strange code.A screenshot of child beauty pageant girl wanting pizza.A baby holding Euros. Why?Making out with a dead dog. Don’t google “babybirding”. A closeup of the eye of a dead pig.For some reason, Alefantis posted a picture of a cavernous room. EVERY SINGLE comment next to this picture is EXTREMELY CREEPY, almost as if they knew that something awful was about to happen there.A bizarre, ritualistic, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’-style pic involving young people.This is the mural prominently on display at Comet Ping Pong by artist Arrington de Dionyso. It depicts strange people holding the heads of smaller people.This is another painting de Dionyso. His work often contains MKULTRA-related themes such as dual personalities (two heads), the exploitation of children – often mixed with occult symbolism.A regular guest at Comet Ping Pong is the performer Majestic Ape from the group Heavy Breathing.A screenshot from a video of Majestic Ape hosting a birthday party at Comet Ping Pong.A screenshot from one of Majestic Ape’s music video where she jokes about … sigh.Here’s another video of that Ape joking about … sigh. Another ‘radical’ artist that is close to Comet Ping Pong is Marina Abramovic.A picture of Marina Abramovic posted by Alefantis holding a bundle of sticks.Abramovic on the cover of dust magazine covering the eyes of a shirtless child.A screenshot from Marina’s ‘Spirit Cooking’ video where she throws pig blood at a statue shaped like a small child.Lady Gaga and Marina at the 20th Annual Watermill Center benefit in a place called ‘Devil’s Heaven’ (can’t make this up). They are partaking in pretend cannibalism.Lady Gaga with ‘a friend’ during the same event. Why are there children there? RUN AWAY KID!The Podesta Wikileaks dump revealed that John Podesta and his brother Tony were personally invited to Marina’s Spirit Cooking event. John PodestaA screenshot of John Podesta sitting in his office during an interview. Hanging on the wall is a painting that clearly alludes to cannibalism.John David Podesta was the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. He previously served as Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama. Wikileaks released thousands of Podesta’s e-mails and it was soon discovered that an inordinate amount of messages referred to ‘pizza’ and ‘hot dogs’. Often times, these words were used in bizarre contexts and in sentences that did not make any sense.One of many e-mails where ‘pizza’ clearly alludes to something else.Some observers believe that handkerchiefs are used as ‘mementos’ in MK abuse. This is a painting from Monarch mind control survivor Kim Noble depicting a victim being abused. There’s a piece of cloth underneath the child. The body appears to be levitating, which represents dissociation after extreme trauma.Read my full article about Kim Noble here.This is an ad for Comet Ping Pong which appears to use the same “dissociation” symbolism.Then there’s John Podesta’s brother Tony, whose strange taste in art has even made the news. Here’s an article from the Washington Post describing how guests were ‘horrified’ by the art inside Podesta’s bedroom.Podesta’s most notable piece is Louise Bourgeois’ ‘The Art of Hysteria’ – a sculpture of a headless man violently arching back. This sculpture was posted by Alefantis on Instagram. He apparently visited Podesta’s home.The sculpture depicts the violent physical reaction of patients suffering from hysteria. “The physical tension of the hysterical arch – an intense muscular contraction, resulting in immobility and paralysis of the limbs – is emblematic of an equally extreme emotional state. Bourgeois makes this highly vulnerable position even more so by suspending her male figure from the ceiling.”– National Gallery of CanadaBourgeois was inspired by studies on hysteric women. The subject of her art is however a man.The sculpture is also strikingly similar to one of Jeffrey Dahlmer’s headless victims. I won’t post the picture in this article but it can be found here. Dahlmer was a serial killer who abused and cannibalized young men. He often placed his victims in symbolic positions and took pictures of them. An article from Washington Life describes Podesta’s love from Marina Abramovic (do see the links connecting?) as well as “under-the-radar” artist named Biljana Djurdjevic. “If you’ve ever dreamed of strolling through a museum with a slice of pizza and glass of wine in hand, you need to befriend superlobbyist Tony Podesta. Known about town as a legendary political “fix-it” man, Podesta has turned his Kalorama home into a shrine to contemporary art, ranging from relatively under-the-radar artists such as Serbian painter Biljana Djurdjevic to those who are much better known (like French sculptor Louise Bourgeois). (…) Currently he has collected from 40 different artists in some depth, with his top five being Marina Abramovic, Vik Muniz, Bourgeois, Olafur Eliasson and Antony Gormley.”– Washington Life, Inside Homes: Private ViewingPodesta has a large paint of Djurdjevic in his living room. Here’s another painting by Djurdjevic.Rationalize it all you want, but this is a painting of a child being tortured.In Conclusion This article only contains some of the findings uncovered by ‘private investigators’ online. What has been exposed is, most likely, only the tip of the iceberg of a huge, complex network that has many ramifications. Each thread could probably be investigated further and lead to even more disturbing facts connecting even more high-powered individuals. Going through the material of this article is a difficult and painful process, but it exposes the true mind-state and philosophy of the occult elite. They publicly celebrate a specific culture of death, abuse and dehumanization through their art and events, leaving us to only speculate about what they do behind closed doors. The symbolism in the above images is in perfect accordance with the occult elite’s culture that I have been describing on Vigilant Citizen for years. The “Pizzagate” investigation reveals, at best, the disturbing culture of the elite and, at worst, an all-out child trafficking ring. And don’t believe that only Democrats are into this. This is the true culture of the occult elite, a circle of powerful people who operate far above political parties, and far above the law.Source link

Kanye West Handcuffed and Hospitalized, Under “Psychiatric Evaluation”

Kanye West Handcuffed and Hospitalized, Under “Psychiatric Evaluation”

Kanye West has been hospitalized for ‘his own health and safety’ and his tour has been cancelled. According to a source, Kanye feels that he’s under ‘spiritual attack’.Kanye West is under psychiatric observation at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for “his own health and safety”. The rapper was “acting erratically” at his trainer’s house when the call was made. West reportedly did not want to go to the hospital and was handcuffed to a gurney while being transported. A source familiar with the case said Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call about 1:20 p.m. No criminal activity was involved; the decision to hospitalize West at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center was for his own health and safety, the sources said. Neighbors described the scene on the 900 block of North Laurel Avenue to NBC4, saying there were “security guards, fire trucks and police. The house that firefighters and police responded to is owned by Harley Pasternak, a celebrity trainer with clients that come to him.– NBC LOs Angeles, “Rapper Kanye West Hospitalized in LA After Canceling Saint Pablo Tour“Kanye’s hospitalization occurred only days after his infamous rant during a concert in Sacramento where he retroactively supported Trump and lashed out against Mark Zuckerberg, Beyoncé and Jay-Z (while pleading him to not send ‘killers at his head’).A source told People.com that Kanye feels that he is under ‘spiritual attack’. “He feels like he’s under spiritual attack, and has been for awhile. It’s not just the big things; it’s smaller, quieter things, internal things. You might think that it’s about Kim’s robbery, and while that didn’t help, that’s not what’s going on here. He’s dealing with a lot more subtle issues,” the source tells PEOPLE. “His mother died in November, so this time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him. He works through the pain every November,” the source adds. West’s mother, Donda, who died in November 2007 at the age of 58. “He feels like it’s a trying time for his spirit, but that can be a good thing. He isn’t one to run away from these things. He leans in and listens, and comes away a stronger, better man. But it hurts him; his spirit is vexed. But that’s where growth comes from,” the source says. “Sometimes, darkness creeps in, and Kanye wrestles against it. He talks about that a lot. It’s exhausting, and it takes everything he’s got. He’s just so tired now; he’s very low energy and feels like there’s a grieving in his spirit. It’s very hard to explain, but something has happened recently, where he’s not the ‘Ye that everyone knows.” – People, Inside Kanye West’s Breakdown: Rapper Feels Like ‘He’s Under Spiritual Attack,’ Source SaysMany observers, including myself, saw this coming months ago. Kanye West is yet another man related to the Kardashians to have completely broken down. In the article I’ve written over a year ago entitled Lamar Odom Found Unconscious in Brothel, Now Fighting For His Life I concluded: When you get involved with a family that is controlled by the occult elite, bad things often happen. Watch out Kanye.While most media sources talk about ‘exhaustion’ and ‘sleep deprivation’ (which is quite possible), these symptoms might be the result of something deeper. Kanye is indeed another artist that has exposed, for way too long, to the toxic cesspool that is Hollywood. While it brought him success, it also disturbed his very core. I will leave you with a short video of Dave Chappelle summing up the situation, a situation that was seen countless times before.Source link

The Entire Internet History of UK Citizens Now Viewable by Government Organizations Such as Police, Military, Taxes, Jobs and Pensions

The Entire Internet History of UK Citizens Now Viewable by Government Organizations Such as Police, Military, Taxes, Jobs and Pensions

The Investigatory Powers Bill forces internet providers to keep a full record of every site visited by each of its customers for over a year. Of course, government accounts are exempt from this Orwellian law.This bill is not simply about notifying the government if a specific site has been visited, it is about listing every single site that has been visited by each citizen and when. This information will be made available to a very large range of government bodies. Of course, there’s the police, the military and the secret service but also others entities such as the Food Standards Agency and the Department for Work and Pensions. Here’s a full list of the agencies allowed to search the browsing history of UK citizens.Metropolitan Police Service City of London Police Police forces maintained under section 2 of the Police Act 1996 Police Service of Scotland Police Service of Northern Ireland British Transport Police Ministry of Defence Police Royal Navy Police Royal Military Police Royal Air Force Police Security Service Secret Intelligence Service GCHQ Ministry of Defence Department of Health Home Office Ministry of Justice National Crime Agency HM Revenue & Customs Department for Transport Department for Work and Pensions NHS trusts and foundation trusts in England that provide ambulance services Common Services Agency for the Scottish Health Service Competition and Markets Authority Criminal Cases Review Commission Department for Communities in Northern Ireland Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland Department of Justice in Northern Ireland Financial Conduct Authority Fire and rescue authorities under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004 Food Standards Agency Food Standards Scotland Gambling Commission Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority Health and Safety Executive Independent Police Complaints Commissioner Information Commissioner NHS Business Services Authority Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Health and Social Care Trust Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service Board Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Regional Business Services Organisation Office of Communications Office of the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland Police Investigations and Review Commissioner Scottish Ambulance Service Board Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission Serious Fraud Office Welsh Ambulance Services National Health Service TrustSource: Belfast Telegraph, Your entire internet history to be viewable by PSNI, taxman, DWP and Food Standards Agency and other government bodies within weeksLet’s face it, this law is custom made to create a climate of fear and paranoia in the UK. Studies have shown that government surveillance stops people from sharing controversial opinions online as it has a ‘chilling effect on democratic discourse’. Also, since people sometimes visit explicit websites and tend to google their most personal issues, they could easily be subjected to blackmail or other nefarious actions. Will government officials be subjected to the same transparency? Nope. In fact, the only amendment politicians have submitted to the controversial bill is to stop MPs from being spied on.Previous articleKanye West Handcuffed and Hospitalized, Under “Psychiatric Evaluation”Source link
