A Review of Dr. Judy Wood’s Book “Where Did The Towers Go?” – Holes & Where Did The Buildings Go?

March 22, 2017 // 2 Comments

It has been well over a year since I sat down and tried to wrap my head around another chapter of Dr Judy Wood’s copyright infringing magnum opus ‘Where did The Towers Go’. In all of the chapters I have covered so far some effort was made to make her theory on how the towers collapsed convincing, which cannot be said for chapters 9 ‘Where Did The Buildings Go?’ and chapter 10 ‘Holes’. Virtually everything said in this section of the book can be debunked with a few Google searches [...]

Why does Greenpeace like the watermelon?

March 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

Last year, I asked the very silly sounding question, ‘Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?’ As absurd as it sounds this is probably one of the most important questions to be asking the organisation right now. This is because it exposes a double standard that lies at the core of Greenpeace and shows their opposition to GMOs to be hypocritical and irrational. Today I would like to ask another silly sounding question that, once again, exposes weaknesses in Greenpeace’s arguments [...]

#161 – Fracknation

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/161.mp3   In reply to Gasland, journalist Irish Boris Johnson (Phelim McAleer) decided to investigate some of the claims made in Gasland, at a press event he asked Gasland’s director (Josh Fox) why he did not mention that methane in water supplies has let others light their taps. Josh took exception to the circulating video clip and had it removed from online platforms. This lead to the crowd sourced project of [...]

MMS and the Fake Clinical Trials – #3 –An Experiment Designed to Get the Results They Wanted

March 10, 2017 // 0 Comments

As many of you will know, over the past month I have been investigating a video of a pseudo-clinical trial held in Uganda that claimed to show 154 people being cured of malaria by MMS. My time has mostly been spent trying to contact the people and organisations involved to obtain more information, and nearly all have not returned my emails. This includes the Ugandan Red Cross and The Water Reference Centre, who both feature heavily in the video. I was also able to identify some of the European [...]

MMS and the Fake Clinical Trials – #2 – Emails and Contradictions

February 28, 2017 // 1 Comment

Although I would bet my life savings on how they were able to show 153 testing positive for malaria one day and negative the next, I know I need some hard evidence. To try and get it, I started to contact the people who were involved including the Ugandan Red Cross and The Water Reference Centre who never responded to my questions. The only person who did get back to me was the editor of the video who was happy to answer my questions as best he could. He was willing to give me the raw footage [...]

MMS and the Fake Clinical Trials – #1 – Introduction to MMS

February 22, 2017 // 2 Comments

What was once known as Miracle Mineral Supplement, but for legal reasons had to change its name to Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), is a 28% sodium chlorite solution in distilled water. When mixed with a weak acid, it generates chlorine dioxide – an industrial bleach and water purifier. Ingesting relatively small quantities of this toxic compounds can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. In larger doses, it can cause renal failure, hemolysis (a rupturing of the red blood cells), and even [...]

#158 – Guns Germs and Steel

February 19, 2017 // 0 Comments

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/158.mp3 Guns Germs and Steel, what is all the fuss! If you were under a rock Crash Course started then stopped a new series on human Geography in which it was heavily implied that Jared Diamond’s magnum opus had racist undertones. Bear in mind we recorded this episode in 2016 so sorry it is a little out of date, but now that the dust has cleared no one can accuse us of trying to feed off youtube drama. By no means a great theory or [...]
