WP: ‘Klimas (who also treats HIV/AIDS) says that if she had to choose between having HIV and having CFS, she’d unquestionably choose HIV’

From the Washington Post:

Klimas couldn’t cure me, but she helped. She gave me immune modulators so my immune system wouldn’t overrev as though I were fighting an eternal flu. She worked to improve my sleep, suggesting a monitor to study my patterns. She prescribed beta blockers to steady my heart rate when I stood. The most effective treatment was astonishingly simple: Gatorade. Electrolytes increased my blood volume — typically 20 percent low in CFS patients — thereby stopping my blood pressure from dropping so dramatically. She also aggressively monitored me for cancer, since my natural killer cells, the immune system’s main cancer assassins, barely functioned, as is common in CFS patients.

I improved enough to work a little bit, and it was a tremendous relief to have a knowledgeable and compassionate doctor behind me. Still, Klimas (who also treats HIV/AIDS) says that if she had to choose between having HIV and having CFS, she’d unquestionably choose HIV.

The Brotherhood Of Europeans

Jared Taylor writes:

In 1900 the population of the continent of Europe was three times that of Africa; by 2050, just 150 years later, the population of Africa will be three times greater than that of Europe. Will those Africans want to stay in Africa? No, they will want to live here.

And throughout Europe, governments are permitting millions of aliens to flood into their countries. Our rulers do not understand that a nation has no more precious treasure than its culture and the distinctive genes that made that culture possible. These treasures must be protected by the most powerful means possible, and that is the state. The state is betraying its deepest obligations when it permits large numbers of aliens to settle in a country. From a cultural or genetic point of view, immigration is no different from armed invasion.

Immigration policy is a national policy of evolution. Immigration determines the future genetic makeup of the nation. If immigrants are from Somalia or Honduras, it means the host population has suddenly evolved in the direction of Somalia or Honduras.

This, of course, is why the idea that there is no such thing as race is so pernicious. It is a way of preparing people for their own extinction. It is a way of telling people, “No, no. You’re not being replaced by aliens and strangers. You are being replaced by yourselves.”

Only white people believe this nonsense. You can be sure that Japanese or Pakistanis do not think race is an illusion.

The theme of my talk today is the need for a world brotherhood of Europeans. We must think not in national terms but in terms of our common destiny as a people.

FM: Senior Chabad Rebbetzin ‘Apologizes’ To Abuse Victim – But Only Under Pressure And Only Indirectly

Shmarya Rosenberg writes:

Rebbetzin Pnina Feldman ‘apologized’ today to anti-child-sex-abuse activist Manny Waks, a co-founder of the anti-child-sex-abuse nonprofit organization Tzedek.

But Feldman’s ‘apology’ was issued to the Australian Jewish News, not to Waks directly, and was only issued after she was pressured by several unidentified Melbourne rabbis who apparently wanted to make this latest embarrassment go away.

“In my robust and emotional email I employed offensive language which I remorsefully regret and unreservedly apologise for. I also want to apologise for my perceived trivialization of the impact of child abuse on victims,” Feldman reportedly said. “The intent of the email was that I agree with all efforts to prosecute pedophiles but take issue with some aspects of Manny’s crusade against Melbourne Yeshivah, one example being the trumped up and ludicrous accusations levelled against Rabbi Avrohom Glick, which Manny ultimately apologised for,” Feldman concluded.

Glick has come under sharp criticism from police and the courts for allegedly lying to them about the child sex abuse at Chabad’s Yeshivah College in Melbourne, and is implicated in covering up that abuse and protecting pedophiles. Glick denies this.

Waks accepted Feldman’s apology even though she failed to contact him directly and was somewhat untruthful in her apology.
