A “Naturally Occurring” Fungi To Kill Moose Ticks? What Possibly Could Go Wrong?

Oh my! I was reading this article about how entomologists have discovered what they call a “naturally occurring fungi” that, in lab conditions, attacks and kills the dreaded winter tick, or moose tick, that is being blamed for killing moose in numbers not satisfactory to the wildlife managers…or so it keeps being repeated.

The idea, evidently, is to figure out what dosages and how to apply it to the forests so that it finds its way to the ticks/larvae in order to have any affect. We should be asking, what could possibly go wrong?

Reading the article, it is difficult to make actual sense from much of it because it is laced with repeated mythology about the winter tick – such things as how global warming contributes to the increased number of ticks on the landscape. Mixed in with the mythology, we can extract a few comments, etc. from the scientists who are working on this project – enough to at least say, what to ???????

This is the part that causes normal thinking people to scratch their heads in confusion wondering about the hypocrisy in thinking, or the lack thereof.

Yesterday I wrote a short piece about the criminal U.S. Senate, who in one breath say we are all gonna die because there are too many cars and too much carbon dioxide, which is warming the planet, and…and…and…yes, we are all gonna die if they don’t do something about taking our cars away from us so members of Congress can fly bigger, faster planes. In the next breath, the Senate unanimously approves a bill to better promote America’s Scenic Byways, to encourage more people to drive more cars, longer distances…and what the hell happened to we’re all gonna die?

When it comes to ticks, cast aside are any thoughts from the post-normal society of automatons who claim they want Mother Nature to rule everything. They believe hunting, trapping, and fishing should be stopped because of animal’s “rights” and that actions such as these are destroying game animals and in return just the thought of hunting is having negative effects on the entire ecosystem – that man should just butt out of any sort of wildlife management and let things take a “natural” course.

But then, along comes somebody with a potentially dangerous suggestion of how to kill winter ticks (a naturally occurring entity) in order that we can artificially grow more moose. Forget any notions that the real reason there are so many ticks is because there are too many moose and “Mother Nature” is doing what it does to kill off much of the moose population as a means of attempting to mitigate the tick problem, which is, must be anyway, upsetting the ecosystem. Oh, my! Are we all gonna die?

So, another question is, what is the purpose of thinking that a “naturally occurring” fungus might kill off the winter tick? Is it because this effort has monetary profit? Is it because we are all gonna die from too many ticks? Is it because some people want to have more moose to play with?

And here’s a brilliant question. If the fungi that can kill winter ticks is “naturally occurring” then why isn’t it, in the grand scheme of Natural Regulation, already mitigating the winter tick problem and any other problem that might be solved by its existence?

In the entire article I can’t find anywhere any kind of discussion of protection and growth of the moose as a food source. In a normal existence, moose as a food source would be the number one consideration of any need to protect and/or grow a crop. No more. Post normal existence is about cherry picking ideas and actions that fit the narratives of the moment – and to hell with food sources…well, until I they get hungry.

Maine had perhaps as many as 100,000 moose. Greed and selfishness cause people to begin making demands for more moose for profit. Instead of obtaining understanding of why there were so many moose on the landscape all of a sudden and that one day when that reason for a population explosion went away, something was going to have to change, the intention of the moose biologists was to figure out how to keep growing moose so that everyone had one as a pet in their back yard (not for food).

The notion here is to figure out what kind of a dosage is needed to apply to the “naturally occurring” “earth and leaves” where the “naturally occurring” winter tick lands in Spring to lay “naturally occurring” eggs that begin the cycle all over again. Might I also mention here that whether there is ice and snow or not on top of those “naturally occurring” “earth and leaves” whatever it is at that time is “naturally occurring?” How dare I!!!!!

The article presents stunning photographs of a cluster of winter tick larvae at the end of a stick of vegetation “questing” for a host. When that host (moose, elk, deer) walks by, they climb aboard. Gee! What if there just weren’t so many darn hosts?

Instead of managing moose in numbers that are healthy…(Note: It was only a short while ago that the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife announced they were going to abandon wildlife counts and concentrate on causing wildlife to be healthy.) the interest seems to be in protecting and growing them in numbers to satisfy the selfish desires of a post-normal society that is obsessed with securing animals as friends and not as a food source.

With a focus on how to kill the winter ticks to protect the moose, and other ungulates (that really are not bothered so much by the ticks -moose are poor groomers) has any consideration been given to the collateral damage that might take place if and when scientists begin sprinkling a “naturally occurring” fungi in unnatural quantities?

Isn’t this entire effort really being based on the supposition that man-caused Climate Change is the culprit for everything? Combine that with misguided notions about wildlife and the purposes for its existence and, like promoting more driving while at the same time demanding people stop driving, ignorance in the causes and effects of “natural occurring” and man-caused events can potentially destroy much, if not all, of what people think they are trying to protect.

It would appear that we have continued ideas, much like our ready acceptance of a piece of paper that allows someone to “practice” medicine, so too are pieces of paper licenses for someone else to “practice” wildlife management and “practice” growing fungi. Like medicine and the demands for drugs by patients, wildlife practitioners are under pressure from a post-normal society that demands animals to play with, even at the expense of all other things…for that moment.

What can possibly go wrong?

The Not So Brilliant Criminal U.S. Senate

Unanimously…Let me write that one more time…UNANIMOUSLY. The U.S. Senate voted unanimously to pass the Reviving America’s Scenic Byways Act of 2019 promoted as a means of encouraging tourism and getting people out DRIVING on these roads sucking up the scenery and spending a dollar or twenty.

This is the same criminal U.S. Senate that is determined to promote a false man-caused global warming, caused, they say, because too many people drive cars too much. (Members of the Senate are excluded.)

How can this pass the straight face test? How can these lying, cheating, worthless morons, in one breath condemn us all to hell because we create too much carbon dioxide while schlepping for votes in another upcoming election, promote and encourage more people to get behind the wheels of their gas guzzling SUVs (isn’t that what everybody drives?) because the Senate says it’s a good thing?

Lying Bastards!!!!!!!!!

But, hey! Why shouldn’t you

DON’T GO LOOK!

You never have before and probably never will. Keep casting a ballot. Insanity tells you next time you’ll get a good one.

Maine Moose and Ticks: Continued Spread of Bad Information

I once thought perhaps there was some hope that Maine wildlife officials were starting to get it when it comes to what is causing the moose population to shrink. But evidently Climate Change remains the excuse for everything incompetent.

Yes, few will argue that winter ticks are killing Maine’s moose. However, none can rid their brainwashing that the cause of the vast number of blood sucking ticks is due to Climate Change – proof of professional ignorance. When you combine this kind of blind ignorance with the need for the media to perpetuate nonsense about Climate Change, there still remains absolutely no hope that one day man will get it and then make plans to combat the problem from a real scientific approach rather than an emotional wandering about hoping on all hope that Climate Change will somehow make things right again.

Once again we read in the mainstream media how we are all gonna die because of Climate Change. Maine’s moose biologist is quoted as saying, “Every day that is mild in October and November and we don’t get any snow, every day ticks are out getting on moose. Climate is a factor in the level of ticks we have out there.”

It wasn’t all that long ago that Kantar (Maine’s moose biologist) was caught telling some people that the reason for so many ticks was due to too many moose, and not so much because of Climate Change.

Maybe there’s more funding available if you are willing to perpetuate the Climate Change nonsense.

Ignorance and brainwashing about Climate Change causes one to never use their brain and implement any sort of common sense. It’s more fun, evidently, to plow along with the myth, living in fear that WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! Thirty years ago it was predicted that whole nations would disappear from the earth if we didn’t do something about global warming. And yet, we still insist that global warming (now Climate Change) is what is causing winter ticks to grow out of control. Smart…real smart.

If Maine would increase their moose hunting permits and lower the moose population to responsible levels, the winter tick problem would go away. I thought Maine’s moose biologists had begun to figure this out. But now they are back to blaming Climate Change on the number of ticks.

In Alaska, were moose have lived for far longer than in Maine, biologists/scientists there have said that there is only one way to mitigate the winter tick problem: reduce the moose population.

It’s easier to spout nonsense and say Alaska doesn’t have a tick problem because it is so cold up there. Ignorance also causes people to think all of Alaska is much colder than Maine. It’s not, and these are areas where the moose thrive. Let’s take a closer look.

The winter tick is not just a common occurring thing in Maine. This tick, Dermacentor albipictus, if found in warm, dry climates like Texas, and cold climates like Alaska and the Yukon. We know that the ticks are found in the Yukon because researchers deliberately took these winter ticks there just to experiment with them to see if they could survive. The ticks survived and the irresponsible, perhaps criminal scientists were allowed to continue practicing their witchcraft.

Perhaps this is just too complicated for some to understand. Try this simple math problem. Alaska has an estimated 200,000 moose. Maine has 70,000. (Note: I use these numbers because the biologists use these numbers. There’s little reason to believe that these numbers are all that accurate.)

Alaska has 663,300 square miles of land. Maine has 35,385. Alaska has nearly 3 times the number of moose than Maine living on 20 times the amount of forests. Alaska doesn’t have a tick problem. Maine does. From this information, people conclude that the problem with ticks is Climate Change. Does this make any sense?

Government Gang Bangers and Insanity

I was listening to a conversation the other day about why people say disparaging remarks about obese and unhealthy people and why the comments aren’t directed “toward the system that created fat people.”

Good point.

Also included somewhere in that conversation was the question of what was the origin of the term “gangbuster.”

Webster puts it simply as: “one engaged in the aggressive breakup of organized criminal gangs.” Members of these “criminal gangs” are called gang bangers.

The U.S. Government is both gangbusters and gang bangers. A gang banger is described by Webster as: “bully, gangsta, gangster, goon, gorilla, hood, hoodlum, hooligan, mobster, mug, plug-ugly, punk, roughneck, rowdy, ruffian, thug, tough, toughie”

The U.S. Government will “agressive(ly) breakup” any one or group that opposes them or stands in the way of their own criminal agendas…even taking on murders and assassinations to accomplish their tasks.

And yet, in the same moment of existence, while destroying any perceived competing “gang bangers” the U.S. Government practices all the fine arts of being gang busters, as given in examples above.

An example of this can be found in the Government’s aggressive position on Global Warming. It has been discussed by some members of the U.S. Government (members of Congress) that anyone who denies that Global Warming is real, should be charged as a criminal and punished accordingly. It appears that presidential candidate Bernie Sanders believes gas executives should be criminally prosecuted for the damages they have caused because of the claims that fossil fuels cause Global Warming: Government bullying (gang banging) at its finest.

But, there’s more to Government gang bangers and their gang busters when it comes to Global Warming. Part of what permits Government Gang Bangers to bully the people into compliance with any of their draconian, people-controlling laws and punishments for non compliance, is our own insanity.

Here’s an example of this. The other day I was sent a link to a story about Global Warming from a reader. It was about a Netflix program where the narrator used old U.S. Fish and Wildlife footage of walruses “jumping off” cliffs and placed the cause as due to Global Warming.

According to the article I was reading, the narrator of the program said that: “…walruses have been driven to suicidal falls from rugged cliffs because there is no more ice for them.”

The footage that was fraudulently used to control people’s emotions (gang banging) was film that showed polar bears rushing walruses forcing them over the cliffs, much in the same fashion as some predators do with their prey species.

The existence of any form of “Global Warming” will always be a contentious and debatable event…by design. It can be argued that the theory of Global Warming is insane, but is that where the insanity exists?

The real insanity is that a recognizable media person announces that walruses are committing suicide, jumping off cliffs, because there is no more ice. The completion of that insanity is that millions of people believe the statement.

Isn’t the real insanity in all of this that people actually believe that a walrus, or any animal for that matter, can reason the desire or need to want to die for any reason? It is insanity to project human emotions and reasoning, or lack thereof, onto animals.

Because people are insane, a part of an insane society, is it any wonder that U.S. Government gang bangers are busily at work being criminal thugs in order to do whatever it is they intend to do?

An example of when the Scriptures tell us that in the Last Days He will send “Strong Delusion” on those not out of focus with Yahweh’s Word.

Ample Bugs

Oh my!! We’re all gonna die!!!!

Over the past several years, I have been repeatedly told that birds, especially bats, are seriously threatened due to a lack of insects to eat because of Global Warming and other such nonsense.

After spending the Spring into mid-Summer in Maine, I can comfortably assure you there is no lack of black flies, mosquitos, deer flies, moose flies, ticks, and just about all other species of insects.

Holy Roman Empire State Targets “Carbon Neutrality” by 2050

It’s all a big joke, yet nobody sees it!

The governor of the Holy Roman Empire State has been working toward legislation that would turn New York “carbon neutral” by 2050, a declaration that is as meaningless as building a border wall, ending a war, or putting men on the moon. It’s all a big joke – a political football.

In an article found at E&E News, a statement, promising to make the list of the Golden Horse Excrement Award recipients, Governor Cuomo said, “This transformation to a new green economy is very expensive. We don’t have the luxury of using funding for political purposes.”

There isn’t a politician or political entity that exists that doesn’t make everything political. To think otherwise means you’re a fool. Talk is cheap and lies are the driving force behind all political campaigns since the beginning of time, and yet, their hope remains with their man-gods regardless.

Trump campaigned hard in the race leading up to the election in 2016 on building a wall at the U.S./Mexican border. And how has construction of that wall gone? I thought so. Successful in lying to his automatonic zombie followers for 4 years and keeping them hopeful enough to keep giving him money and votes, he kicked off his reelection campaign yesterday in Florida by promising to immediately deport millions of “illegal” aliens. He won’t! He can’t! He can only make promises to an ignorant and distracted mass knowing what he says is more important than what he does.

I would assume Trump will wear out the wall rhetoric and deportation promises, while acting tough threatening military might, long enough to get reelected and then it’s back to business as usual.

I would also assume that the governor of the Holy Roman Empire State is no different than Trump. They are guided and directed by the same archons within the Global Power Structure. Unfortunately, the blind and deceived subject serfs know no better and continue their worship of man gods, willfully participating in the Whore of Babylon’s evil ways, eagerly wearing the “Mark of the Beast.”

People choose to see what they want to see and choose to do what they want to do. They choose to seek peace through the works of men ruled by Satan.

Combined “Brilliance” at North American Moose Conference

It is most difficult to get reliable and accurate information from just about ANY media source. Here is but one example.

I did not attend this conference on moose. All that I have had a chance to read about it I found in this Bangor Daily News article. As readers, we must understand that information contained in this article is from the perspective of the author…period. If the author is a Climate Change zealot, naturally the article will only provide support for their religious beliefs, perhaps overlooking contrary data or information provided. It matters not the complete outcome of the conference and all thoughts and determinations, the readers are subjected to personal perspectives of the author regardless of the writer’s intentions.

Having said this, this remains an attempt at sharing some thoughts and my own perspective on what I know about the North American Moose Conference, combined with years of knowledge and research about moose and in particular moose ticks and large predator mortality.

According to the article in question, Maine appears to be the only state (region) where the winter tick is killing off the moose herd. (Makes one wonder if that is true and Climate Change is the cause, aren’t these other areas being subjected to the same Climate Change?) I will make a note right now that compared to the other regions where biologists in attendance at the conference said ticks aren’t the problem, Maine has gobs more moose than any of the other regions. Is there a correlation? And why does Maine have gobs more moose? Does the spruce budworm after effects have anything to do with it? Does growing an artificially high number of moose related?

Keeping in line with the unreliability of good and accurate news information, we also read that in Minnesota, one attendee said, “We had a very high neo-nate mortality. And two-thirds of that was wolf predation.”

I will most certainly guarantee that if you were to contact the Minnesota authorities about wolf predation and moose survival, the “official” line would state nothing about wolves killing off the moose herd. Regardless of long-time historical accounts from Minnesota that wolves have always had devastating effects on moose herds, officials there will tell you the problem is…you guessed it – Climate Change. Who let this person out?

The article in question states that the problems with moose herd management throughout North America varies from ticks, to predation by wolves, to disease, to unregulated hunting, etc. but it just seems an irresistible result of brainwashing that Climate Change is the problem. I can’t help but wonder how much good scientific study has been destroyed or wasted due to catechized indoctrination of the false impacts of a man-created religion (politics) of global warming – now generically referred to as Climate Change?

Perhaps there is some hope. It has taken many years for Maine, with a few years of moose study under their belt, to admit that winter ticks might be destroying the moose herd. There has also been some hints that perhaps an artificially inflated herd is responsible for an intensification of the the winter tick.

I have stated in the past that if scientists want to blame the problems of moose management on the winter tick, maybe it’s time to do some studying of the winter tick. There is danger in that these days, as there is danger in any, so-called, scientific research. Scientism rules and most “scientific” research is nothing but useless garbage that mostly better represents a good dose of propaganda – outcome based research – it’s where the money is.

However, there are signs that there needs to be better studies (not influenced by the false demons of Climate Change) about the tick.

In a separate article, also found in the Bangor Daily News, about how this winter tick “quests” and finds a winter home on board a warm, blood-filled moose, we read some comments from attendees at this conference about that winter tick that remains mostly misunderstood and wrongly said to thrive on “Climate Change.” (Whatever conveniently fits the narrative of the day.)

They got it right about how ticks climb vegetation in the Fall and lie in wait for a moose to walk by at such time they jump on the moose for a long winter’s ride participating in the blood letting…if you will.

They also get it partly right when they state that “early snow” will “…knocks that vegetation down and knocks the ticks down on the ground.”

This is a bit misleading though. At the time that the winter tick is questing (late Summer or early Fall – around the same time that the moose is rutting which adds to the enhanced possibility of getting ticks due to increased travel) what are the chances of “early snow?” And what are the chances that this “early snow” is substantial enough to “knocks that vegetation down and knocks the ticks down on the ground?”

Just about never. In regions throughout Maine, rutting and questing happen most often long before “early snow.”

While it may be fun to talk about and wish for “early snow,” none of us have any control over that weather and leaving it to chance (Mother Nature) wishing and wanting will do absolutely nothing to responsibly manage a moose herd.

Also mentioned as a deterrent to the tick population is drought. Once again, this may be an accurate claim, but perhaps the chances of a drought in the Fall being an effective killer of ticks are about as good as “early snow.”

Most often discussed in tick gabbing circles is the need for a lot of snow and cold to “kill the ticks.” This is really what I’ve come to call Romance Biology or Voodoo Science (coined by former USFWS biologist Jim Beers). For winters to be cold enough, long enough you have to approach the Arctic Circle. That’s why ticks aren’t a problem on Alaska moose.

As a side note, a biologist from Alaska made this statement: “Winter ticks aren’t a problem there. They don’t exist.”

Not to lose the point of his perspective of winter ticks in Alaska, but it is not totally accurate to say winter ticks “don’t exist” there. They may exist but negligibly. And the reason they might exist is because irresponsible researchers took winter ticks into that region just to see if they would survive. They did and that’s how you have “some” ticks in that region.

If one spends all their time focusing on how “early snow” and “drought” can have an effect on moose, sensible things are overlooked in exchange for blaming the lack of “early snow” or lack of a drought on Climate Change – a hopeless and irresponsible excuse for doing nothing. You can’t get rid of the winter tick. They are a viable species that can survive in extreme heat and drought as well as moisture and extreme cold temperatures. And we have no control over that. We do have control over the number of moose (food supply) we manage.

What studies that do exist on the winter tick, can tell us that a better deterrent in tick questing is wind. Ticks can’t hang on to vegetation forever and strong winds, which odds are probably better to have than early snow or drought, knock the ticks off vegetation forcing them to begin their quest back up the plants. Persistent winds could be quite effective. Maybe someone needs to make a claim that winds, or lack thereof, is a product of Climate Change.

Completely missing from this one news article is any discussion about reducing the moose population in order to reduce the tick population. Among sensible biologists (mostly those not overwhelmed by Climate Change) the ONLY way to mitigate winter ticks is to mitigate the number of moose….period.

Most of us don’t really know all that was discussed at this moose conference. All we have here is a little bit of information about Maine’s problem in dealing with winter ticks and the toll it is taking on the state’s moose herd.

Perhaps someday, if the Scientismists don’t completely win out, somebody will figure this all out. We could do as some suggest and let Nature do the job of management but I assure all readers, that’s not the ugly, rotten mess we really want to be subjected too.

Seriously, it’s time to can the false claims associated with the politics and religion of global warming and get down to some real, honest scientific research of value.

In case you might not have figured it out yet, I’m not holding my breath waiting.

Climate Change: The Sky Is Falling…Again

In case you hadn’t figured it out…yet…Climate Change is a Left vs. Right thing. Why is that? Well, you see…er…um…actually never mind.

But, here we go again. One more time someone takes the time to show anyone interested that Climate Change, as sold to a gullible, brainless, society, makes no sense.

What isn’t discussed, because you’d be labeled a member of the tinfoil hat club, is that Climate Change is the excuse the government wants to destroy/control whomever they wish.

Let’s back up a moment. The question might be how did this society get to a point where they insist on believing in the theory of Climate Change (as presented by the government et. al.)? A society must be prepped in order that they accept this premise regardless of whether or not the proposed results are actually achievable.

Through careful planning, an entity, such as the American Government which already wields extraordinary power over a people, when presenting a theory of global warming, must first begin by blaming this event on the people. This is the guilt factor.

Once established, and believed/accepted, that because we live in a modern era, we are causing global warming, we are then shamed for our behavior.

With guilt and shame in full destructive mode, it is a snap to instill fear in everyone. With a scared society, anything is possible.

Now that our society is scared of the effects of Climate Change, riddled with guilt and shame because it is our fault, we are primed to accept virtually anything as being the result of Climate Change. And here we are!

In the article linked to above, we see an example of how Climate Change has lowered the water level of the Great Lakes, followed by how Climate Change has caused the water level in the Great Lakes to rise – an example of the irrational fear that pervades this society.

Why might the government, or perhaps more accurately the Global Power Structure, insist on Climate Change? All that is ever discussed, but on a limited basis, is that the government pushes Climate Change for money. Government makes no bones about the fact they want to tax carbon – something the government has convinced us is a major cause of Climate Change. They also will need to tax everyone more money to fight Climate Change, much in the same way as we have been taxed for decades to fight poverty, education, drugs, etc. (How are those wars going?)

What is not discussed is how technology has become a cause, not a cure, of this so-called war on Climate Change.

I remember when Secretary of Defense, William Cohen, under Bill Clinton, told a joint session of Congress, back in the 1990s, that the United States has the technology to manipulate the weather/climate. This, of course, was related to the use of such technology as a weapon of war.

Where do you suppose this technology is some 25 years later?

If you might agree that our government is corrupt and capable of many sinister acts to punish and control the people (please go read historic accounts), doesn’t it make some sense that if they were to perpetuate Climate Change and blame every weather phenomenon on man-caused (guilt, shame, fear) Climate Change, it would give them a great cover for when they use technology against us?

If any kind of Climate Change exists, it is the government-caused weather manipulations foisted on a fearful society willing to do what they can in order to abate the guilt and shame of their acts of how they live.

And on it goes!
