Highly CommendedComment and Opinion

Natural News

This site was Highly Commended in the 2009 Millenium Awards. The award citation read:

The competition for the overall winner of the 2009 Millenium Awards was very close, but there can only be one winner. Unfortunately for Mike Adams, the one who didn't win was him, although I imagine he will be a strong contender for the Anus Maximus Award in future years. Mike and his site reached the top of the competition by his total disregard for the truth and the imagination he shows in inventing the lies he tells about medicine. He claims that mammograms cause cancer, he is an anti-vaccination liar of remarkable mendacity and virulence. Needless to say he is an AIDS denier. Mike has never met a form of quackery he doesn't like or any form of medicine which he cannot ridicule and deride. A true champion for the future.

Dear Mr Adams,

Congratulations. Natural News was Highly Commended in the 2009 Millenium Awards presented by The Millenium Project. I hope that this will go part way to relieving your disappointment at being thrown out of the Shorty Awards for cheating. The Millenium Project has a much more lenient policy on cheating, so if you can get all of your followers to send me $10 each you will be a certainty to win the top award for 2010, the Anus Maximus Award. Unless Joe Mercola's followers send more money of course. The award citation read:

Please feel free to publicise your award and display the award logo on your web site. If you wish to collect the physical prize (a tube of haemorrhoid cream and a wire brush applicator) you can do so at your own expense, but please give me sufficient notice so that I can organise the location for the public application of the cream and the accompanying media coverage.

Highly CommendedBacking up for the second year in a row, this site was Highly Commended in the 2010 Millenium Awards. The award citation read:

Bridesmaid again. For the second year in a row Mike Adams missed out on the top award, but the winner was always going to be hard to beat. Mike tried hard with his idiotic cartoons suggesting that doctors deliberately cause cancer so they can make money not curing it but killing patients instead, but what took him up to the wire was cheating in the Shorty Awards. Imagine being so bereft of morals and integrity that you had to cheat in a meaningless Internet competition. Still, when dishonesty and lying are the principle tools of your trade there probably isn't any reason not to cheat in a popularity poll. It's just being consistent in behaviour.

Maybe next year, Mike.

Dear Mr Adams,

Congratulations. Natural News was Highly Commended for the second time in the 2010 Millenium Awards presented by The Millenium Project. I know it must be disappointing to come second two years in a row, but as I said last year, if you decide to cheat like you did in the Shorty Awards you could always send me money.

Pure madness (11/7/2009)
EveryoneCaduceus must be familiar with the caduceus symbol, those snakes entwined around a staff that is sometimes a sign that medicine is nearby. (The actual symbol for medicine is the Rod of Asclepius which has only one serpent, but if Mike Adams gets something about medicine right it is an accident.) Well, you might have thought it meant that help was at hand, but "journalist" Mike Adams has revealed the truth at Natural News. Here is part of what he has to say:

So far, then, we have a staff carried by the Greek god Hermes, a protector of liars and thieves (who is also the guide of the dead), named as a staff or wand related to announcing information to the public, encircled by two serpents representing evil, and tied to yet another Greek myth about the female being beat to death.

This is the symbol of modern-day western medicine.

The part about the female being beaten to death is especially relevant, given how our male-dominated western medical system considers virtually all female physiology to be disease (pregnancy, menstruation, etc.). Women are treated like animals in many ways, through endless breast cancer screening and mandatory HPV vaccines. Female organs are considered useless or disease-ridden, such as when hysterectomies are performed to remove women's "hysteria" (madness). That's where the name "hysterectomy" actually comes from, of course.

That the two snakes representing evil would encircle the staff of public announcement could be an indication that the purpose of the staff is to announce evil (the propaganda of western medicine). At the same time, the mythological carrier of the staff is the protector of liars and thieves (the drug promoters and drug companies).

Once you understand the symbology, it becomes quite evident that this prominent symbol of western medicine was not chosen by chance: It sends a powerful subconscious message, much like the symbols of secret societies used on dollar bills, for example (the all-seeing eye floating above the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill). It might even be said that, through the repetition of this symbol which adorns the most important documents and texts used in the medical schools, doctors are, in a very true sense, being continuously indoctrinated with the powerful symbols of evil and death.

It would be funny if it wasn't so stupid. On second thoughts, things can be both stupid and funny. This is both. How could anyone take Adams seriously after this?

Mike's thoughts about mammograms

Healthranger's in the garbage (23/1/2010)
Hysteria has broken out in altworld over the treatment of Mike Adams, the "Healthranger" from the NaturalNews cesspit. Adams was doing quite well in the Shorty Awards when suddenly he lost the lead to someone who actually talks sense about medicine. For those who don't know Adams, he is possibly the most vile and unprincipled promoter of quackery and lies around at present. He has absolutely no regard for the truth and simply makes things up if he thinks that there is the remotest chance that someone might believe him. Unfortunately such brain-dead people exist, which is why he can get away with saying that mammograms cause cancer (and are deliberately designed to do so). A wonderful example of the sort of idiocy he can invent and still remain credible in quackland is his assertion that doctors use the Caduceus symbol as a conscious affirmation of their commitment to evil, death and the abuse of women. I am not making this up. He is of course an anti-vaccination liar of the most virulent kind and also spreads the usual lies about cancer, which is why he has no hesitation in producing cartoons like the one below. By the way, Mike, if you think I'm violating your copyright by publishing these cartoons here then feel free to print one on heavy parchment paper, roll it up tightly and violate yourself with it. If you get my meaning.

Mike Adams shows respect for people with cancer

ShortyBut back to the Shorty Awards. When Mike saw that he was no longer the most respected health information purveyor in the world he decided that action had to be taken. The action he took was to encourage large scale cheating. The Shorty Awards are for work on Twitter, so someone who is not a Twitter user has no information on which to vote. Suddenly a large number of people signed up to Twitter and immediately registered a vote for Adams. The Shorty people didn't like this, and as the number of sock puppets and invalid votes was so high they disqualified Adams. He is very unhappy about this and is torn between announcing that he didn't care about the competition anyway, that the competition is being run by Big Pharma, that he is going to sue the Shorty people, and telling all his loyal, cheating followers to vote for some other quack (who will then almost certainly be disqualified as well).

A lot of my friends are gloating about Adams being disqualified, but it could be a Pyrrhic victory. He was being well beaten even with his cheating, but now he can claim that he has been unfairly treated and the SCAM world will ridicule the competition and say it means nothing. I would have preferred to see him humiliated in the voting rather than be given an excuse to make up more lies about the ubiquitous influence of Big Pharma and its supposed employees.

Having said all that, I am still looking for votes. I have neither the hope nor the desire to push my friend Dr Rachie out of a well-earned first place, but I would love to come in the first five. I have the wonders of Adams and Mercola thrown at me several times a week and I would really like to have something to throw back. If you are already registered with Twitter please go to and cast a vote in the Health category. If you are not registered, don't sign up to Twitter just to vote because the votes won't be counted and I don't want to end up in the bin like Mike Adams.
