A recent study published in Nature Communications has shed light on the potential link between gut bacteria and Parkinson’s disease. The research, which involved 490 Parkinson’s patients and 234 neurologically healthy individuals, found that nearly 30% of gut bacteria in Parkinson’s patients differed from those without the disease. Notably, the bacterial species Bifidobacterium dentium was seven times higher in Parkinson’s patients, while levels of Roseburia intestinalis, a bacterium found in healthy colons, were 7.5 times lower. While the study does not definitively establish gut bacteria as the initial cause of Parkinson’s, it does provide valuable insights for potential new treatments and cures.

In the realm of social media, one author has been vocal about their dissatisfaction with the current political climate. They have expressed their refusal to participate in systems they perceive as corrupt, such as vaccinations, mask mandates, digital IDs, and central bank digital currencies. The author also voiced frustration over the handling of the climate crisis, the war in Ukraine, and the mass murder in Gaza, criticizing the lack of action and awareness from the Western world. They argue that individual voices speaking out against these issues can effect change, expressing skepticism towards the effectiveness of elections and voting.

The same author also discussed the phenomenon of radical dismissal, where ideas and beliefs are categorized as either right or wrong without room for consideration or nuance. They argue that this polarization of viewpoints, perpetuated by a larger agenda, is leading to a lack of tolerance and flexibility in engaging with opposing ideas. The author emphasizes the importance of maintaining an open mind and resisting the urge to dismiss differing viewpoints.

In the entertainment world, comedian Jimmy Dore recently interviewed Dr. Leroy Hulsey about his computer modeling study of World Trade Center Building 7. The interview, which has been released on Rumble, has been largely well-received, with only one negative comment out of approximately 150. The interview is seen as a significant step forward in the pursuit of 9/11 justice, and there are calls for Dore to continue his investigation into the event.

Finally, recent economic data suggests a gradual slowdown in the US economy. Indicators such as significant declines in employment from the household survey and the ISM services sector survey, as well as below-expectation retail sales, point towards a potential downturn. The Federal Reserve’s pivot towards rate cuts may be a response to these worrying trends. While some statistics may be exaggerated, the overall trend is clear, and the Fed’s actions suggest a recognition that the economy may not be heading towards a soft landing.

The Madness Continues: A Look at the State of the World and the Need for Change

The evil ranged against us is wounded as never before, revealed and exposed as never before. It may be in its death throes, but a wounded and dying predator is at its most irrationally and lethal level of dangerousness, most likely to be at its most unpredictable just before it finally falls.
