Last week, I jumped in my car and headed south to visit a farmer Tom to talk about agricultural revolutions.

June 27, 2018 // 0 Comments

In the early hours of March 8th 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was on its way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur when, all of a sudden, all contact with those onboard the Boeing 777-200ER was lost. The position of the aircraft disappeared from air traffic control, indicating the aircraft’s transponder was no longer functioning. Malaysian military radar continued to trace the aircraft, which almost immediately began to change direction. Several hours later, an hour after the aircraft’s [...]

More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Chemophobia on the Young Turks’ YouTube channel is nothing new, but recently they have outdone themselves when they uploaded a video that would not be out of place on Natural News. The video in question is called ‘Deadly Monsanto Weedkiller Discovered In Popular Beer And Wines’ and is the kind of propaganda that would make even Kim Jong-un blush. What’s worse, and should be very concerning for all Young Turk fans, is that this agrochemical hit piece is the perfect example of native [...]

More Nonsense Published on the Young Turks Channel

May 15, 2018 // 1 Comment

Last year, Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of the Young Turks published a video reporting on a class action lawsuit filed against Monsanto by people claiming the company failed to warn consumers about the risk of cancer associated with their herbicide, Roundup. As you can imagine, accurately reporting on such a controversial and emotionally charged topic requires a good understanding of the subject, however, the Turks, in their arrogance, believed they were more than qualified to cover the story [...]

May 6, 2018 // 2 Comments

David Icke was a former sports broadcaster and spokesman for the Green Party who attracted media attention because of his unusual views after being interviewed on various TV shows in the early 90s. During his “turquoise period”, where he would often be seen wearing a turquoise shell suit because he believed the colour was a condiuoate for positive energy, he appeared on the Wogan show, where he talked about interpreting the will of “Godhead”, and how the world is about to end. Since [...]

Did the Titanic Really Sink? The Olympic Switch Theory Debunked

April 27, 2018 // 1 Comment

In the early hours of April 15th, the British passenger liner RMS Titanic, owned by the White Star Line, collided with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. At the time, some believed the ship to be “practically unsinkable” because of her system of watertight compartments, of which four could be flooded and the ship would still remain afloat. However, the iceberg tore a series of holes along the side of the hull, flooding six compartments, which sealed the [...]

The Abandoned City of Pripyat in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

April 16, 2018 // 1 Comment

On 26 April 1986, whilst performing a late-night safety test which simulated a station blackout power-failure, reactor four of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant suffered a catastrophic power increase, leading to explosions in its core. These explosions completely destroyed the reactor and caused the release of massive amounts of radioactive materials over a ten-day period. Located about 2km west of the reactor was the city of Pripyat, founded in 1970 to house the workers of the power plant. The [...]

I was recently able to visit the gargantuan Dugar Radar (AKA The Russian Woodpecker) receiving antennae located approximately 60 kilometres away from their transmitter which, together, were capable of detecting intercontinental ballistic missiles fired towards the Soviet Union from the States. There are actually two parts that make up the receiver, a low-frequency antenna with a height of 146 meters and length of almost half a kilometre, and a high-frequency antenna with a height of 100 metres [...]

March 7, 2018 // 2 Comments

I want you to imagine for a second that it’s 1976, and you are an amateur short-wave radio enthusiast – strange request, I know, but just go with it. One night, whilst sitting in front of your equipment, you begin to receive a signal of unknown origin that drowns everything else out. Through your headphones, you hear a very distinct, repetitive tapping sound, and you are not the only one. The signal is so strong that radio hobbyists and legitimate broadcasters worldwide are hearing [...]
