10 Worst Foods for Digestive Health, Nights of the Long Knives, and Montezuma's Revenge.


Aztec emperor Montezuma II is killed on this day in the year 1520.  Various sources ascribe his death to different parties: some assert that he was killed by other Aztecs who were pissed at him for selling out and not building a wall to keep the Spaniards out; others claimed he was stabbed by Spaniards in the party of Hernán Cortés. 

One thing is quite certain from all accounts:  Cortés and his men had to fight their way out of the city of Tenochtitlan suffering from Gastrointestinal infections and would be forever known as Montezuma's Revenge. 

No shit!

If my calculations are right, Trump will do something aggressively-disturbing today.  For, on this day in 1934, Hitler ordered the killing of leaders of the S.A. storm troopers and others in what became known as the "Night of the Long Knives."  Nazi head of propaganda Josef Goebbels claimed that Ernst Roehm and others were plotting to overthrow Hitler, and maybe they were.   In reality, however, it rid the party of its more radical, socially progressive forces.  

The original "Night of the Long Knives" is from the fifth-century treacherous massacre of British Celts by Germanic Saxons known for their proficiency with the seax, or long knife.


Oddly enough, on this same day, ten years later in 1944, the German forces would surrender in the Cotentin in France ending WWII.


Coinkidink? Peut-être.

June 30th is sacred to the Earth Goddess Chicomecoatl, maize goddess of the Aztecs. 


Apparantly, she had Cortés' number on this day in 1520.  



10 Worst Foods for Digestive Health

per Manhattan Gastroenterology


While an unhealthful diet may cause nothing more than a few uncomfortable hours, eating the wrong foods over a long time can lead to more serious complications. As a primer on foods to avoid or at least reduce, listed below are the 10 worst foods for digestive health:

1. Grease

Fried food is at the top of most gastroenterologists’ worst food list because it is so difficult to digest. If you have the slightest digestive sensitivity, fried food can kick off a bout of heartburn and acid reflux. Some of the worst offenders are French fries, fatty steaks and deep-fried anything.

2. Processed Food

The carbohydrates in refined foods — like chips, soda and white bread — move through your digestive system quickly, leading to symptoms like bloating, cramping and gas. The high fat and calorie content don’t do much for your weight and blood sugar levels either.

3. Chili Peppers

You might enjoy the sweat they stir up, but spicy peppers can burn your esophagus and cause heartburn for hours after you eat them. Hot, spicy foods are particularly dangerous for your digestive system when you eat them close to bedtime.

4. Chocolate

Yes, that sweet tooth you indulge is affecting more than the size of your thighs. Chocolate can trigger digestive symptoms like heartburn and upset stomach, especially if you have a disorder. It’s a diuretic too, which means it can cause diarrhea and loose stools.

5. Artificial Sweeteners

While you think you’re doing your body a favor by shaving calories off your intake, your digestive system suffers when you substitute artificial sweeteners for natural sugar. The pink, yellow and blue packets are filled with ingredients that increase inflammation and cause bloating, diarrhea and gas.

6. Alcohol

It’s not technically a food unless you consider the three-martini lunch. Even drinking alcohol in moderation can relax the sphincter in your esophagus, causing heartburn or acid reflux. Too much alcohol can inflame your stomach lining, induce cramping and lead to diarrhea. It also prevents you from absorbing nutrients properly.

7. Corn

Too much of anything is bad for digestion, but corn in large amounts is particularly dangerous because it’s high in cellulose, a fiber that the human stomach can’t break down. Corn passes through your system undigested, and it can cause cramps and gas in the process.

8. Coffee

Again, while it’s not a food, coffee definitely deserves a spot on this list. Coffee so irritates the stomach lining that nearly 40 million Americans have kicked the habit. Coffee can cause heartburn, acid reflux, inflammation, dehydration and constipation. What’s in your mug?

9. Acidic Fruits

Just the name alone conjures up visions of acid reflux — and for good reason. Oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes and lemons are high in acid. Eating too much acidic fruit leads to the condition that carries its name. Eating these fruits on an empty stomach irritates your stomach lining even more.

10. Raw Vegetables

Even though you continue to hear about the many health benefits of crunching raw veggies, you can expect to pay an intestinal price for the practice. Raw vegetables contain a lot of insoluble fiber that, like corn, can cause bloating, gas, diarrhea and cramps when they pass through your system undigested.


Friday

Slow Day

On this day in 1993, New York Mets pitcher Anthony Young sets a dubious American major-league record with his 24th consecutive loss.   Prior to that, on this same day in 1990, the first pitcher in the American league ever to throw a no-hitter happens, twice on the same day.   Once by Fernando Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Dodgers and then later that same day by Dave Stewart of the Oakland Athletics, 30 minutes apart. 

Yes, after about a hundred years of baseball, two people break the same record on the same day.  Coinkidink?  Maybe.  

Another coinkidink for this day is that in 1992 the U.S. Supreme Court without any Donald Trump appointees, upholds the principle that abortion is a constitutional right.    Let's see how long that last.  But as I have already stated, previously, Bring It On Neo-Con, Right-Wing Religious Hypocrite.  We see through you.

Which brings me to another crazy event from history on this day: in 1926 the fascist government adds an extra hour to the Italians' workday in order to increase economic efficiency.  

Hmmmm, why is that important? 

It's a slow day.

In East Anglia, today is the optimum time for gathering herbs.  On this date in Appleton, England, the boughs of a very old hawthorn tree are decorated with flowers, flags, wreaths, and ribbons in a ceremony known as Bamming the Thorn.  In Voodoo belief, this day is sacred to the Sun deity Papa Legba, a spirit-master of the pathways and crossroads.




Thursday

The liberal vote is the revolution


This may sound political, but it's not.  There is another opening on the Supreme Court, and since the Republicans stole a seat by not confirming President Obama's selection for over a year, and allowing Donald Trump to appoint a conservative in that seat instead after the election, with this another Republican pick they will definitely have enough people to overturn the abortion laws allowing woman the choice.   I for one think this is good news.  I would love to see them vote away these rights for woman in the USA because, then maybe lazy-ass liberals will start paying attention.

I really don't think they would outlaw abortions in the USA.  It's always been their way to win votes but no one in their right mind thinks you can outlaw it.  The religious nuts who believe this are just like the religious nuts who after 30 years of using temperance as a way to win conservative votes in the late 1800's and finally got their way in the 1920's prohibition, only to see the will of the people wake up and vote out conservatives for 30 years,  are at it again and have been using the abortion issue as a way to win votes for the last 40 years with no real plans to ever outlaw abortion for they know it is not the will of the majority.

So, hold on dear friends, for this conservative nightmare that has made the rich very rich, and poor very poor, it coming to a head.  They have suppressed the will of the people for a minority of people who now see their days number.  They see the face of the USA becoming more diverse than ever; they see young people open to demanding more from the top greedy 1 percent who own everything; they see the hypocrisy of the Republican party who would not allow a Democrat president to appoint his lawful pick for the supreme court one-year before an election, a Republican party who now says an election year doesn't matter.  Fairness to them is bullying us.

The truth is, if they were really winning, they would not be cheating to keep their power.


If you are a liberal and want to join the revolution:  vote.  Period.  That's all you have to do.  Even if you own nothing more than the backpack on your shoulder, book of poetry in your hands, or working too many hours to think of anything else but work, you need to vote.  That scares them more than any else for they know their hypocrisy, hate, and greed, is not sustainable in a truly free society. 

It really is funny watching them hold on to power the only way they can.

Vote.

"It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind."

                                                                                               Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes

Yes, supreme court justices are important, now aren't they.


On this day in 1938, the father of Eugenics was accepted as a member of Germany's Nazi Party.  Lorenz wrote a paper employing principles of ethology and calling for a "self-conscious, scientifically based race policy" administered by "our best individuals" with the aim of inducing "a more severe elimination of morally inferior human beings."

In 1973, Konrad Lorenz was awarded a Nobel Prize.


Wednesday

Lynch Sarah Hucabee Sanders. Or at least pop her in the head like Queen Victoria!


You've all heard the story by now of how Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaruant by the name of the Red Hen because of her Trump connection.  In case you don't know, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the daughter of the religious preacher and Separation of Church and State Denier, Mike Huckabee — who also heads up the Christian Hate Sector supporting Donald Trump.  Sarah Crooked-Faced Sanders is the press-secretary for Donald Trump and lied daily for him.  Just a few of her outright, undeniable lies:

   “The president in no way, form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence.”
   “There are multiple news outlets that have reported ‘former President Barack Obama ordered wiretapping on Trump.”
   “Trump knows nothing of the $130,000 hush money payment from lawyer Michael Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels.”

I’ll stop there, but I could go on, she does it every time she opens her mouth.

No wonder no one wants to eat with her.


Funny, but on this day back in 1850 another oppresser of the people who tried to do away with the powers of a democracy in favor for a monarchy much as Trump has done to his Republican Party, was victimized in a similiar way as Crooked Face, it was Queen Victoria.

Seems the policy of Queen Victoria had pissed off a former milaitary officer named Robert Pate so much that he banged her in the head with his cane.  To which the Queen cried, “Certainly it is very hard and very horrid that I, a woman — a defenseless young woman and surrounded by my children should be exposed to insults of this kind....”

Sound familiar?  I think it sounds just like Sarah Crooked-Face Sanders crying about being asked “politely” to leave a restaurant because, well, her energy was bad and very conducive to vomiting:  not good for any restaurants.

Come back and eat with us when you’ve stopped lying.

In other news, Sir Donald Trump says David Lynch's Career is Over because Lynch said somehting nice about Trump.  But, did he?

What Lynch said about Trump was, “He (Trump) could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much.”

Of course, all Trump heard was “greatest,” not the underneath meaning, the worm that crawls under the grass in the opening scene of Blue Velvet, which in that film said, “Look, I’m going to show you the true ugliness of Suburbia America,”  and in Lynch’s Trump statement means, after Trump, anything goes in America.

And it does.  When the pendulum swings back the other way, as it always does, it will be so far left we will finally get a true Liberal government in the USA.  Something we’ve never had.  It’s coming.  After George Bush we elected our first black president, after Trump... well, look at last night’s Democratic primary election in New York where a 28 year-old Democratic Socialist — don’t worry,
you are too if you support healthcare for all and a fair minimum wage for all —  defeated a fourteen-year term Republican-Light Democratic.

Yes, the pendulum is swinging back this way from our first fascist president and this liberal can’t wait to see where we are in four years.  Zen!

Finally, on this day the Roman festival of Aestaris, goddess of summertime, is a celebration of the beginning of summer and was held annually.  Also on this day in 363 c.e., the Roman emperor Julian died from a battle wound.  Known to Christians as "The Apostrate" and to pagans as "The Blessed," Julian reinstated the pagan cults in Christianized Rome.


Tuesday

Xmas becomes Xmas on this day!





On this day in 1870, the United States finally makes Christmas Day a public holiday.  Scotland,where New Year celebrations have long been deemed the more important, will not make Christmas Day a public holiday until 1957, and England, where the accent is more on Christmas, will not make New Year's Day a bank holiday until 1974.

A lesson from JFK could be used in the USA today to help end this division between Peaceful Liberals and RADICAL Neo-Cons (sorry, couldn't resist the punctuation), for on this day in 1963 president Kennedy electrifies Europeans as he stands before the Berlin Wall and announces, "Ich bin ein Berliner," suggestion that all people must become engaged in ending the political division of the German people that has persisted since World War II.

According to Icelandic legend, every year at noon on this date, the tip of the shadow of Mount Scartaris points to the secret entrance of "Centre Earth," in which giant human-like creatures and prehistoric monsters dwell.  Annually on this day, Salavi, the Spruce Tree Rain God, is honored in Native American corn-ripening ceremonies.


Monday

Where are the 60's Nazis now and how come Pagan's keep ruining the party?

Rockwell with pipe.




From today's offering of the "Where Are They Now" collection, I present to you that laughable group formally known as the American Nazis Party led by George Lincoln Rockwell, who gave us such loving lies as, "The Holocaust Denial Movement," you remember that golden-oldie, it went something like this:  the Jews invented the story of the Holocaust to legitimize Israel and extract reparations from Germany, and that they perpetuate the myth by their control of the media and Hollywood."  This monster of hate also is also credited with developing the word "White Power" in the sixties, as well as melding Nazism with a Christian Identity -- although he once said he could never worship a Jewish savior.


Deny This Ass-whole!!!

Unfortunately, if a lot of these right-wing nuts on the radio today could say the things Rockwell did  without losing their sponsors, they would.  It is undoubtedly buried underneath their definition of the word "Liberal" in their daily mumbling.   And those of you who listen to that hate to blame another race or group of people for your problems in the world, are following that same evil that gave us the America Nazi Party of the 1960's.

So where are they today?

Rockwell Getting His Rocks off in Public.

They are now a religious church called "The New Order."   That's right, after the American Nazis Party was condemned by everyone, they became the National Socialist White People's Party and replaced "Sieg Heil" with "White Power."  Oddly enough, the NSWPP entered a number of candidates in elections in the 1970's and 80's and usually attracted about 5 percent of the vote.  In a Milwaukee school board race, it managed to garner one in every five voters.  In 1983 they changed the name to "The New Order" and their faith statement is "Living the Faith of Adolf Hitler."

That's it for today, I really need to go take a shower.

Ever wonder why May and June are the wedding months?  Could be, that on June 25th in the Blekinge province of Sweden, the pagan Midsummer Bride is still chosen form among the young women as she was in pre-christian times.  She then selects a Bridegroom.  Money is collected from the onlookers for the "happy couple."  At the end of the daylong festivities, the collected money is distributed amoung the local charities and churches.

Hmmmm, isn't marriage a Christian union?   Those damn pagans of old just keep popping back up and ruining the story!


Sunday

Donald Trump 'Ana Baptist

 The Anabaptist were a peaceful people who believed baptism a symbol of salvation and opposed baptism of infants.  They originated the idea of the "free church"-- a church separate from the state.  What!  Why would they do that?  Oh, I don't know, maybe because Jesus himself said "Give until Caesar what is Caesar's" in the original Separation-of-State-and-Religion message?

In the 1530's -- not that long ago really considering the earth has been here not 10,000 years as some closed-minded people want you to believe, but billions of years!  Bitch -- sorry, I had to add that in keeping in line with today's vernacular on silly things.  As I was saying, in the 1530's, in Munster Germany, many Anabaptist lived.  Ironically, just as Christians of today, they couldn't keep their ego-centric religion out of government and so gained control of the city council.  In walks, Jan van Leiden.  A Charismatic zealot who stirred up the citizenry with soaring visions, calling Munster the "New Jerusalem" and himself "King David."  He took multiple wives and passed laws permitting polygamy, there being six times as many women as men in the city.  

Jan van Leiden coin from 1530's

Jan predicted the world would soon end but that his followers would be spared.  He forced people to be baptized and introduced communization of property.  The Catholic world was shocked by his hedonistic orgies.  The whole city was jolted when, in a fit of frenzy, he beheaded one of his four wives with his own hands in the marketplace.

On June 24, 1535, after 24 months of chaos and corruption, the besieged city fell to Francis of Waldeck and Anabaptist were butchered.  "King David" was captured and tortured, red-hot pliers clawing every inch of his body.  Then he was hung in a cage in the tower of the Church of St. Lambert in Munster's chief marketplace.  His remains swung in the cage from the church rafters for 400 years until finally removed in the twentieth century.

Francis of Waldeck

I guess the bible is right in one passage:

A little yeast can change a whole batch of dough (Galatians 5.9)

And to today's church following our own version of Jan van Leiden in our current Hedonistic president, Donald Trump, need I remind you he 'Ana Baptist.




Saturday

Today, I woke up in a sweat!  I couldn't believe what I saw in my sleep:  Melanie Trump, the wife of our first Feudal Lord President, Donald Trump, was a lizard woman.  In my dream she looked at me sideways, and just before the dream was about to get interestingly erotic, her pupils thinned and her fork tongue swiped her lips and she "hissed."

Was it a dream?


Friday

Cush Jobs, the Cuck Brothers, and Neo-Nazis: e i e i o.





June, the 22nd of our lord Sir Donald Trump and I woke early this morning to look at the free press to see if my chance, the impeachment processes had started yet; of course it hadn't because only a few Republican's have decided to do what is best for their country over their personal gains.  I do understand, they worked so hard to get elected.  They've borrowed a lot of cash too and then have houses they can't afford without their cush political jobs.  What would they do if they lost their cush jobs as they most certainly would if they spoke ill of Sir Donald Trump. 



Yes, they are walking a fine line, waiting until the Democrats get control of the house and senate to blame the impeachment on the Democrats, because their 40 percent base has totally gone zonkers and they know it.  We all know the reason too, for years and years the Republicans have been lying to their base to get elected; telling them things like Liberals are Communist -- we're not, we are democratic socialist who believe in a more equitable distribution of wealth, one where the wealthy still own way too fucking much, but not at the total expense of healthcare and a safety net for the people who they made their billions off of.  And don't let them fool you, without our labor and spending habits, they are nothing.   Don't let them fool you, they didn't do shit to get so wealthy but be born into it. 

"Where did the hate all began?" you ask.  Well, some would say with the Lords of England who came to the USA incognito and pushed their feudal way of life on us.   Maybe.   Other's believe it was the sin of slavery which this country was built on; the same sin of slavery which causes so many conservatives pain today, for to admit it was wrong, they have to admit our race was wrong, and so, instead of owning up to it, they simply continue the lie that one race is better than another. 

I believe, the Right-Wing Psycho minority began with Hitler.  

Ouch, sorry, that world again.   I hate to use it but have to.  Especially since, it is a fact that the same Hitler loving people from back then have evolved into the Sir Donald Trump Feudal Lord lovers of today.   And who were these people?...   Wait for it....  The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, the same anti-Jewish book that Henry Ford Sr. gave away with each car for several years.

That's right, the Neo-Nazis who went under names such as the United White Party (precursor to the National States Rights Party) and John Birch Society (began by the father of today's right-wing cuck brothers, oppsss, I mean, Koch Brothers).

Which brings me to the today's blog subject:  George Lincoln Rockwell and the American Nazi Party.  He was no idiot and knew American's couldn't handle the word "Nazi" party.  To him, the only reason they couldn't is because they thought it was a form of Communism, not anything to do with the fact that it was a party of hate.  George Lincoln Rockwell's goal was to make the American Nazi Party the Republican Party, and by god, I think he succeeded.

Wake up America, they are not placing nice anymore.  It is time the Republican Party Split from the Nazi Party.


_____________________________________________________________________


On this day in 1960, George Lincoln Rockwell, the leader of the American Nazi Party flew into New York City to defend his application to speak in Union Square.  By the end of the day he would be run out of town by bystanders who said thing to him like, "Only dogs that spew disease all over the place, dogs like you that have the gall to come in here and do what you do."

Secretly, George Lincoln Rockwell had gotten what he wanted, publicity and the right to claim leadership of the most infamous political party in America.

Trump Elite Protest

It is the Winter's Solstice.   Great, a longer day to enjoy more Trump Smut.  What will he do today to remind us of Hitler?  Last night he spoke at one of his never-ending political rallies.  He complained of the 1000 or so protesters who greeted him with signs calling him Elite.


Why do they call the 'other side Elite!'  Then he went on to remind us why we do:


There is definitely no high road with this guy, is there.

Wednesday

Yes, sorry, but I do have to weigh in on this Donald Trump Bad-Ass border problem where he is arresting everyone because they are not White.  Period.  If a group of fair-haired blue-eyes were coming to the border, no doubt they wouldn't be treated like Salvages of old and their kids taken away. 

The real issue here is that Trump has decided to arrest them all, no matter what their reason for trying to get into the USA is.   This has created the mess, and if you believe anyone else had anything to do with this other than Trump, you are an idiot and really, really need to read this.

It wasn't that long ago that the right-wing Church people said "America will be judged by it's Sins."  I think they were using the blow-job President Bill Clinton received from an intern while he was president.   They blamed everything wrong with the world on that blow job.   It was the reason a crazy lunatic drove his car up on the curd in Reno Nevada and murdered about twenty people -- and at least one was a minor!!!!  Oh my God!

Where are these people now?   Oh, you know where: they are on their knees prying "Thank You Jesus for Our White Supremacist Savior," no matter how many salvages he has to murder.

Look at these imagines America:










If you don't this these children being taken from their mothers is not a greater sin than Bill Clinton receiving a peal-neckless from an overweight intern while president of the USA, you have another thing coming. 

Here's two real things for you to consider, tonight while you are in your comfortable bed:

One, these people coming to the USA are not criminals.  They have no-other choice.  Their world has been raped by American greed.  Their country, just like the rest of the world, is part of the greater Capitalistic Failure being experienced by the whole world.  We are the only raft boat in the water and they are smiling to it.   Yes, we can't let them all in because it will sink us.   But, we are the ones who raped their resources, busted their good-governments because we called them "communism" and so placed right wing dictators in their who sold their resources to us for personal gain.   When the Venezuela government was feeding all its people, Ronald Reagan sent in CIA backed radicals to overturn their government.   They weren't communist.  They were socialist and that scared the shit out of the greedy capitalist.   It still does.   The bottom line is you can't have a few wealthy people who own everything without a majority poverty.   And until we wake-up and share the wealth, the would will continue to decay.   We are the iceberg that hit the Titanic.   The world is the water we are all left with.  The USA is the biggest raft left and everyone is swimming for it.   Truth is, we can let them drown out there, or all drown together.   It doesn't matter: The Trumps, Bush's, DuPont, Koch Brother: the Wealthy are safe on their personal island.  Their not even getting wet because they got you blinded to the fact that their personal islands even exist.   Their personal islands which if they would share, we would have no needs for the lift boats.  

We're sinking people and it's because of the greedy "bad" capitalist. 

At best, you have another year or two to enjoy your lifeboat, but if you don't start charting a course for those private islands soon, their will be no hope.  And do you think the top 1% care?  No, went the bottom falls out everywhere as it has in South America, Greece, Spain, and soon to be Italy, your Fox News lies won't even help you.  Nor will your fake Jesus. 

Don't believe me?   Well, let me show you how I know.  I've seen the future.   And take for instance today, June 20th, 2018, at 1pm.  Tonight, President Trump is planning a Propaganda Rally in Minnesota.   Watch what almost happens there tonight.   It's July 20th, 1944 all over again.  Don't miss it!!!

John Barleycorn
 
There were three men came out of the west, their fortunes for to try
And these three men made a solemn vow
John Barleycorn must die
 
They've plowed, they've sown, they've harrowed him in
Threw clods upon his head
And these three men made a solemn vow
John Barleycorn was dead
 
They've let him lie for a very long time, 'til the rains from heaven did fall
And little Sir John sprung up his head and so amazed them all
They've let him stand 'til midsummer's day 'til he looked both pale and wan
And little Sir John's grown a long long beard and so become a man
 
They've hired men with their scythes so sharp to cut him off at the knee
They've rolled him and tied him by the way, serving him most barbarously
They've hired
 
They've wheeled him around and around a field 'til they came onto a pond
And there they made a solemn oath on poor John Barleycorn
They've hired men with their crabtree sticks to cut him skin from bone
And the miller he has served him worse than that 
 
For he's ground him between two stones
And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl and his brandy in the glass
And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl proved the strongest man at last
The huntsman he can't hunt the fox nor so loudly to blow his horn
And the tinker he can't mend kettle or pots without a little barleycorn
