Lin Wood is really 'out there'.

In another thread, he is said to have claimed he "might actually be Christ coming back for a second time... elevated Christ consciousness."


Another DUer pondered the possibility of schizophrenia. At first this sounded possible, but Lin Wood is almost seventy years old--probably too old to have undiagnosed schizophrenia, and have had a legal career without somebody noticing.

Wonder what the f*ck is up with him?

I'm siding with the NYT on this one for now, but people should know that Johns Hopkins

epidemiologist and Clinton appointee Devra Davis wrote a detailed rebuttal to that article. (Disclosure: I've never owned a cell phone, but not really out of fear of its health consequences).

Accusations of Russia lobbying are ricocheting around the media and have now been extended through a front-page article in the New York Times positing that scientists and consumer advocates calling to halt 5G have fallen under the spell of RT, a news network registered as a Russian foreign agent in the U.S. Could it be a coincidence that following on the heels of the NY Times story, the Wall Street Journal and the UK Telegraph have echoed the same smear of guilt by association, portraying scientists who warn of the potential environmental and health damages of 5G as untethered alarmists unwittingly linked to Russian propaganda? These otherwise credible media sources ignore the substantial body of science pinpointing hazards of wireless radiation and 5G detailed in independent journalistic investigations that have appeared extensively in media throughout Europe and been covered by major networks.

William J. Broad, author of the Times’ unusually placed opinion piece, is an award-winning investigative journalist, known for searching studies of complex technical issues including matters of space exploration and national intelligence. By relegating concerns about 5G to a Russian ploy, he misses altogether the fact that the purportedly independent international authorities on which he relies that declare 5G to be safe are an exclusive club of industry-loyal scientists. China, Russia, Poland, Italy and several other European countries allow up to hundreds of times less wireless radiation into the environment from microwave antennas than does the U.S.. Moreover, while many other countries regularly monitor levels of environmental radiation, the last EPA report on the topic was released in 1986, back when a gallon of gasoline cost less than one dollar and streetcars still ran in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Environmental levels of wireless radiation in the U.S. and worldwide are growing exponentially.

The history of research on the environmental and public health impacts of radio frequency microwave radiation (“wireless radiation”) reveals some uneasy parallels with that of tobacco. In the 1950s and 1960s, scientists who showed the harmful impacts of tobacco found themselves struggling for serious attention and financial support. The validity of their views was only accepted after the toll of sickness and death had become undeniable. For health impacts from wireless radiation, a similar pattern is emerging. Each time a U.S. government agency produced positive findings, research on health impacts was defunded. The Office of Naval Research, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and the Environmental Protection Agency all once had vibrant research programs documenting dangers of wireless radiation. All found their programs scrapped, reflecting pressure from those who sought to suppress this work.

Russian’s 50 years of research on electromagnetic radiation since the Cold War has led to their clear understanding that this exposure does have biological effects.


Devra Lee Davis, (born June 7, 1946) is an American epidemiologist and writer.[1]

Davis works on disease prevention and environmental health factors. She served as the President Clinton appointee to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board from 1994 to 1999, having won bipartisan Senate confirmation. She was Founding Director of the Center for Environmental Oncology, the first of its kind in the world, and presently acts as President of Environmental Health Trust, a non-profit organization focusing on drawing attention to man-made health threats. She lectures at American and European universities and her research has been covered in major scientific publications as well as being highlighted on major media outlets like CNN, CSPAN, CBC, BBC, and public radio.[2][3] In recent years, her attention has become focused on the health hazards of exposures to man-made sources of electromagnetic radiation, especially those from wireless devices.

She has also authored more than 190 publications in books and journals ranging from The Lancet and the Journal of the American Medical Association to Scientific American and The New York Times, and writes for blogs such as Freakonomics in the New York Times, in The Huffington Post, and elsewhere.[4] She co-founded the Environmental Health Trust in 2007,[4] with David Servan-Schreiber.[citation needed]


Just so people know that not everyone asking questions about 5G is automatically a "quack." Her book, The Secret History of the War on Cancer is very good.

P.S. This was the "doomed and incredibly tasteless real estate project"

Decline and closure

The death of Robert F. Kennedy marked the demise of the hotel coinciding with the decline of the surrounding neighborhood during the late 1960s and 1970s. The area also saw a surge of illegal drugs, poverty, and gang activity infiltrating the Wilshire corridor. Under the direction of Sammy Davis, Jr., the “Now Grove” replaced the classic Cocoanut Grove in 1970 in order to appeal to a modern nightclub crowd.[6] However, patrons lost interest in both the hotel and the neighborhood surrounding it, which caused the Ambassador Hotel to fall into disrepair throughout the years. Because of this the Ambassador Hotel closed to guests in 1989, but it remained opened for filming and hosting private events. In 1991, Donald Trump, who had bought the hotel in hopes of tearing it down to build a 125-story building, sold off silver serving platters with the hotel's eagle-topped crest, tiki-style soup bowls from the famed Cocoanut Grove nightclub, and beds and nightstands from the rooms.[13]

No, Trump didn't get the loan from the man I worked for; he kicked Trump out of his office and told him not to come back.

It's horrifying. Back then I didn't understand, but my learning curve has

been exceptionally steep. I just began studying tyrants, dictators and authoritarians; nearly all of them were charlatans before they were dictators.

I merely dismissed him as a charlatan until early 2017 when he made my mom cry.

She called me in tears the morning that the indigenous people at Standing Rock were setting their teepees on fire, and that is when I began to realize he wasn't just going to be an incompetent person who accomplished nothing, but that he might be seriously dangerous. My mother doesn't overreact to things, or cry a lot. She said that was a harbinger of things to come.

Prior to that, I worked as an assistant to an older, wiser person who had met with Trump about a loan he wanted for a doomed and incredibly tasteless "real estate" project in Los Angeles, and to that person, Trump was nothing more than a joke, so I took my cues from him initially.

I'm doubting it:

1. human remains found in wreckage
2. No BOLO
3. Not telling the public to be alert, look for this guy, or call the police if you see him
4. They quietly searched his residence today, without SWAT or fanfare
5. They have said there is no further danger, a very risky thing to say if your perp is still alive (unless he's in custody)

Depending on the motive, some of these types of individuals really do

want credit for what they've done and they foreshadow it on social media somewhere. I'm beginning to think the "shots fired" was so that somebody could see and appreciate their work before the bomb exploded. "Hey, somebody come and see what I've done before this baby blows."

Also, we have the rumor about human remains possibly being discovered. There's the possibility that this was a grandiose suicide. Let's see, too, if the person/s responsible left a "manifesto".

The Origins of World War I (Yale lecture)

A basic but fascinating introduction to the decades leading up to WWI. The professor explains that most Europeans had "expected" a war for the preceding two or three decades, but predicted a war between Britain and France. This fear was so endemic it spawned a genre of horror/sci-fi type novels predicting a fantastical invasion of Britain by France. Brits feared they were underprepared for a war they felt was inevitable. Throughout this period tensions rose as Germany rattled its sabers, and unlikely alliances formed, first between France and Russia, then between France and Britain. Russia was anxious about Austria-Hungary. Ethnic and nationalistic tensions, economic competition and also old resentments, figured into the toxic mix. As for Germany, Germany believed they had two weeks to conquer France before Russia would leap in (something they wanted to avoid), foreshadowing the same bizarre and unrealistic calculations that Hitler would later demonstrate in WW2.
