Yellow Glasses are PALEO! On Paleo Quick Tip of the Day podcast

Sleep is very, very important! For all of us, paleo, keto, low carb, livin la vida- whatever.   Sleep is at least as important as proper diet!

I hope you know the basics by now of ‘sleep hygiene’, but then again I realize most average people don’t-  

You need to sleep in total darkness; if you live in an urban (meaning lots of lights left lit all night) area- you need blackout curtains!  Even a slight amount of light after dark will disturb your all important circadian rhythmns.  

You need all electronics (especially a TV in the bedroom!) out of that bedroom entirely.  

If you have a nightlight, make sure it is with a red bulb.  Like in an old-fashioned darkroom- this will not disturb your circadian nightime settings, like any light with a blue light spectrum.  Like any white light.

And there is one more thing you can do, that is really important- wear blue blocking lenses or else just don’t look at screens before bedtime.  Read a book or take a walk on a dark rural road before bed (like I do).   Read one of my books under my pen name Jess Thornton set here in the Driftless region- guaranteed to put you right to sleep…

But this last is kind of my main point in this podcast- if you wear eyeglasses, like I do when I drive at least- get your lenses tinted yellow!  

I know, it sounds simplistic.  But, I am here to tell you that I have had yellow tinted lenses for well over a year now, and that slight yellow tint has made a huge difference!  Not just in sleep quality; I mean, I don’t usually wear my glasses at all at night, but if I did, I could watch TV or the computer assured that blue light was not startling my eyes and body into alertness just before bedtime.

There are other benefits as well- I researched this, as I do, greatly before taking this step:

This yellowish tint blocks blue light, as I said, and this helps to prevent macular degeneration.  It also makes it much easier to drive without being blinded by other autos headlights, since the yellow tint serves as a kind of sunglass, without being a dark lens.  
In fact, the yellow tint is almost unnoticeable, since you can wear it indoors just as you wear standard eyeglasses.  I even find that now, when I sing in church with my choir, that the bright light of the sunshine through the stained glass no longer bothers my eyes at all!
I used to want to wear sunglasses in church, but was reluctant to look like “Joe Cool”, wearing sunglasses indoors as I sang…

So now, I just wear my yellow tinted glasses instead.  I smile, knowing that while I don’t look like I’m trying to be cool with (slightly) yellow lenses-

I know that I secretly….  AM!  

Because I am spreading the word about blue blocker lenses.  Almost subliminally!

Evolution Matters on PaleoJays Smoothie Cafe podcast

One of the hallmarks of the ancestral, or paleo lifestyle, is its reliance on the observance of EVOLUTION determining virtually everything about us!

We are evolved human beings, after all.  Our diet evolved from our interaction with our environment on this earth, as did our patterns of healthy living, and interaction with others.  Each of our selves is the culmination of millennia of years, during which our own DNA has existed, evolving in response to the environments in which our ancestors have found themselves in for all of that vast stretch of time.

Those of us who came from the far north of Europe, back in the ice ages, developed as humans under very different conditions to those experienced in other areas of the world.  And so, the Danes of today resemble the Congo pygmies in very little indeed!  

Some humans lived in hot climes, such as Africa- under conditions of constant warfare and tribal fighting over readily available hunting and gathering conditions.  There was very little incentive to develope any sort of technology, or cooperation- immediate success, meaning your tribe got the animal or the patch of fruit or plantains- well, that was all that mattered.  It was time to go home and breed!

Similarly, when children were born into such an environment, there was very little reason to nurture them much beyond infancy.  Most children died young anyway, and so to overly invest much in them then was wasted effort.  Disease is rampant in warm, tropical climates.  The best evolutionary strategy there seemed to be to breed large broods of children, invest little in their nurture, and only concentrate on those that survived into maturity.  This was best for the tribe, at least back then.

And, there was very little reason to plan for the future: Winter did not exist, and so all days were very much the same!  Food was plentiful, always; the important thing was to make sure that you and your tribe got most of it!  Then, you could once again concentrate on your raison detre- breeding.

This was a successful strategy, except for disease.  It was constant in Africa especially, and kept the numbers of the humans there quite small.  As did their constant warfare amongst themselves, which to be fair was evolutionarily- there in Africa- quite appropriate.  Physical development of fast twitch muscle fibers, running ability, and the evolution of an explosive violence when opposed was effective in that time and place.

There was even no need to look for new developments.  In Africa, the wheel, animal herding, and even a building of more than one story were never developed, much less more advanced technologies.

However, meanwhile far north of Africa in Europe, those humans who were evolving there, (whether they originally left Africa or came from another place altogether: this is still unknown)- these peoples were facing an Ice Age.  A frigid time, when the climate was increasingly inhospitable to humans, and was really dominated by much larger animals such as the wooly mammoth and the auroch, which was the ancestor of the modern cow and bison.

Vegetation was minimal, and hard to coax from the ground in this period.  The ancient Europeans concentrated then on animals, ruminants like the woolly mammoth and others that could convert grain during the short summers into meat.  This meat could feed a tribe for weeks, if not months, although to hunt such daunting animals was very difficult.

These ancient peoples, who adapted and evolved to their own harsh environment by actually developing a pale skin and eyes (probably by admixing with Neanderthals), were able to convert sunlight into vitamin D through their skin, ensuring their health in the far north.

They also evolved and learned cooperation.  Cooperation within the tribe, to coordinate the teamwork needed to take down huge, mighty beasts with primitive weapons such as spears and flint weapons.  The ability to recognize leaders of wisdom and ability, rather than just brute strength and viciousness.  

These folk also learned that the family unit was paramount, under the direction of the wise tribal leader, as was the cultivation of the infants and youth.  Survival was precious there, and each and every child was needed and wanted.  Nurture was as much, if not more important than mere breeding, resulting as it did in tribes members that were devoted to the few that survived the harshness of the clime.  

These folk evolved with a preference to develop intellect and cooperativeness over physical quickness and explosiveness.  The people of the North needed to master the long game: even if they made it through the long, frozen winter, they knew that they had to prepare, to store up, to get ready for the long, frigid darkness that always came, and they had to be ready for!  They developed their intellect.

A similar evolution also went on in northern Asia, with those of the North developing much more in line with those of northern Europe, although with a different genetic root stock.  Still, those in the North developed intellect, cooperation, and empathy- all traits need to survive in a harsh, unforgiving climate of hard winters and short summers.

Empathy, along with cooperation and intellect were necessary for northerners to survive.  Everyone in harsh northern climes needed help from time to time!  The ravages of the unforgiving weather, the injuries unavoidable in hunting huge wild mammoths, both necessitated that those injured be taken care of compassionately- since in that northern region, each human life, from infant to adult, was infinitely valuable!  Human life in the North is innately precious.  

And so began the evolution of a code of life that valued the individual, not only the mightiest warrior or warlord, but the grandmother that nurtured the infants and children, and the grandfather that knew the tactics that could ensnare the mightiest beast!  This began the evolution of a compassionate religion and outlook on life.  One that is only found in people of the North!

So, fast forward to today: our intellect has triumphed over the world, it really has!  The marvel that is Western Civilization is the shining light of the World!  This is unquestionable!!

But, sadly, yet predictably- it is being questioned.  

By who?  Well, by those who have benefited the most from the evolved world that is entirely derived from the intellects and efforts of those who built the civilized world; that is, the world of Western Civilization.

Our own white women, who live on the edifice built up by their white forefathers, now question that very civilization that keeps them from the harem, from the slavery and subjegation that is part and parcel of the Southern climes of unopposed oppression.  Africa and Muslim regions are still rife with slavery and regard women as property.  Chattel.

That very compassion, evolved to keep our ancient tribes safe from tragic accidents in the primeval, now has reared its head amongst our women, and also our emasculated, liberal metro-sexual men, Democrats all here in the US, and they feel compelled to demand that we not only take care of any illegal immigrants that come here for ‘free stuff’:

We now are supposed to -  
Import millions of Africans from their failed lands and support them!
Also, Muslims and South Americans and Haitians and any others from failed, southern lands.  
AND, since we used our compassion and cooperation and Western Religious principles to send endless Aid in the form of food, medical care, and everything else WE devoped- 
WE have increased the sheer NUMBERS of especially AFRICANS far beyond they could ever have achieved, without our enabling it.  Now, the Africans FAR outnumber any other group in the world, via our technology and endless help!

The result will be disaster.  South Africa, once a wonderful, thriving country under white rule, but now under black rule, is failing.  Soon, ALL of Africa will want to be taken into the cold, inhospitable lands of Europe and America!  
Well, actually, they are now already. 

I guarantee- they are not coming to help us with the arduous Mammoth Hunt of old…

No.  They are coming simply to take.  To take what we have built, what we maintain and provide.  They come with nothing in their hearts but hate and envy.

They hate us for what we have achieved.  They hate our abilities, they hate our religions of compassion and love, they hate our acceptance of women, and any alternative lifestyle.  

And mostly, they hate us for what we are.  Cooperative, accomadating, altruistic and compassionate.  All of these, to them, are sheer weakness!  Because of them they are convinced we can, and must be crushed.

But mainly, it is sheer envy.  They know they could never maintain, much less build what we have built.  And so, they rage about ‘white privilege’ and other such nonsense, while they know, deep in their bones:

We built EVERYTHING.  And they did not!

Protect Your Tribe from Invasion on PJSC podcast

We have reached a crucial point in our history, here in Western Civilization.  And actually: we are at the point where merely saying Western Civilization is considered RACIST!  

Does this wake some of you ‘live and let live’ well-meaning folks up??  At long last??

This might seem somewhat strange, for a ‘Paleo podcast’, that is all about ancestral health and wellness, to be talking about.  Politics??  PaleoJay, you are off your rocker- I just want to be healthy, along with my friends and family, and of course my neighbors, who make up my “tribe” in my homeplace!”

Well, me too!  And that is why I am speaking out on this today.  The majority of our supposed political “leaders” has totally let us all down!  I am speaking to anyone in Western Civilization, anyone in the heretofore WHITE WORLD.  That is: those peoples who actually built and maintain Western Civilization. 

And, Western Civilization is in actuality: CIVILIZATION.  

For, after all, the civilization created by western people, from the Greeks up to the Romans, through Europe and the Renaiisance and right up to today…

Well, it’s ALL US!  No ifs, whys, or buts.  People of European descent conceived of, crafted, and built the complicated, intricate ediface of Western Civilization.  It’s all us- we came up with it all, and it was really, really hard; and really, really significant.

We white westerners are a very polite people, actually.  We never liked to point out what we have done, and tried to spread our good ideas, our self-created egalitarianism and means to attain wealth through private propery, industry, and self-reliance amongst the rest of the world.  We never tried to keep it all “to ourselves”, not at all.  We have great ideas, great systems, and actually we are somewhat bewildered when other races and groups fail to join us in our overwhelming, unprecedented success!

Just as I strive to spread the news of natural, ancestral health as hard as I can, and have for over 10 years; it seems that most people resist the news that health is their own responsibility, and not their doctor’s, or the government, or the medical clinics!

NO- just as in all the truly important parts of your life- it is up to you!  

And this is the bottom line of Western Civilization, with its freedom and autonomy, which is the watchword of true civilization and true culture:  

With freedom comes reponsibility.  We are responsible for ourselves and our families: not the government, not other people all around us- no, we need to provide for ourselves, and not be a burden on others.  Only then can we help out others who are truly in need!

This very notion, which is fundamental to Western Civilization, has been turned on its head in recent years.  Nowadays, if our health is failing- it is the government’s fault- what are they going to do about it!!??

If we don’t feed our children, or provide for them- what is the government going to do about it??

And so it goes.  The success of Western Man has been so great, that the rest of the world is envious, and proposes endlessly that the reason we have been so successful is because we stole our wealth from the losers.  That is, those whose societies are so dysfunctional and maladapted that they can’t even provide for themselves, much less compete!

Our ancient, European ancestors survived the Ice Age by cooperating, and by developing compassion.  Only by thus cooperating could they have survived, much less prospered duringt those horrific extremes of weather and climate, over thousands of years.  

These ancients, those who carried our very DNA, learned and evolved to develop their intellects, along with their cooperativeness, compassion, and empathy, and so survived and thrived.  They went on to develop the very civilization that we have today, one that is copied and envied throughout the entire world- this civilization was developed through trial and hardship.  

The intellect evolved as well, as an ability to plan for the future was very, very important in harsh climates with long winters, where food would not be readily available for extended periods.

Meanwhile, those who developed in softer climes, warm and forgiving ones, evolved very differently…

For them, endless competition for resources that were always available readily, was the watchword!  They developed physically, with fast-twitch muscle fibers that were useful in combination with a murderous rage that helped them in short term combat to gain the resources they desired.  Cooperation was seen as  weakness, and so empathy and compassion were pretty much bred out of them, given their environment.  So it went, in the far southern climes of comparatively easy sustenance and living- they evolved to be explosively violent- in the short term- which would gain them what they desired, and then give them the physical ability to run away very fast.  The state of their intellect could not have mattered less, and so never evolved to any great extent.

Fast forward to today: Those from southern climes are clambering to gain access to the Western Civilization they are so ready to say they despise!    From Mexico and South America, to all of the countries of the Muslims, they all want to come here!  To the country of their hereditary enemies…

Why?  For freedom, for the ability to provide for themselves and their families; to adapt to a civilization they have long resisted, to become citizens of a Western nation, with all of the responsibilities and self-determination that would entail?

NO.  Pure and simple; it’s all about free stuff!!  The material goods that have resulted from Western Civilization: all of the technology, the endless food and shelter, heat and cooling, cars and trains and planes and: well, you get it.  

Everything we have built and maintain- and that THEY WANT.

For free.  No work.  No changing of their horrible, life-destroying lifestyles of women domination, child abandonment and defilement, and endless crime sprees and horrific violence.  Just free stuff, because we have it, and they want it!

And, because of our self -destructive, suicidal compassion, developed in the Ice Ages where it was necessary, we (especially our white western women folk, who are wired to ‘nurture’ the helpless, above all), we bow down to their crazy, destructive (to us) demands, and actually give them everything!!

We of White Western civilization have, ironically, been too successful for our own good!  We have gone into Africa, and used our technology and medicine to save the many infants that historically died there, along with our food production methods and irrigation techniques to allow their populations to grow from a very small, hardscrabble group of desparate peoples- to a huge, overwhelming, poverty stricken group of underacheivers with low IQ intent only on coming to the tiny western world of inhospitable clime to get Free Stuff!!

This is the plight of modern Western Civilization now, in a nutshell:

We have become trapped by, above all things: our suicidal compassion and altruism.    What once made us strong, now makes us weak, ironically.

We think (many of us, of the LEFT of course) that it is our duty to allow our hereditary enemies, the Moslems for God’s sake, to come into our countries of Europe and America- and to live off of our welfare dollars!  All while they conspire to take us down from within, while we support them and their huge families of the enemies of our civilizations.

We also allow, those of the Democratic Left at least, to let in unlimited amounts of illegal migrants, that we can then support, along with their hugely growing families, forever, as they conspire to take over our states and country and then vote for the end of the very policies of western civilization that allowed them entrance and made them want to come here!  

And, as to the American blacks who have been here for a couple of hundred years: the very best thing that happened to our current blacks is that they were brought here!

That is undeniable.  Black Africa today is a complete nightmare, as are black cities, countries, and states everywhere.  Haiti is Africa.  Nigeria is Africa.  Baltimore and Chicago are now largely, unfortunately- AFRICA.  

The evolution of a people defines who they are.  They create their own societies.  

Let’s end this discussion there.  If your desire is to live in a healthy, clean environment, such as is espoused and exists in modern Western Civilization, then Canada, the US, and Europe are what you desire.

Unfortunately, the very so-called leaders of these strongholds of Western Civilization have become competely deluded by their suicidal compassion, and are now tools of our enemies.  

We need to vote these anti-western civilization wimps out, and we also need to stand our ground!  

Live with your family in a rural, self-sustainable area of like-minded folk.  (Those who appreciate and like real western civilization!)  Think Red States!
Own guns.
Do NOT vote Democratic, which has become in-facto Left-Communist/Socialist
And, in essence- live an ancestral, paleo type of life!

Avoid medical doctors and clinics, care for your health largely on your own, and be very wary of government overall, which has become quite leftist, and anti-Western Civilization via pro-authoritarianism and Big Government over all.  

Just bear all of that in mind, and hopefully we can bring back the halcyon days of Ward and June Cleaver, and leave this leftist, anti-western civilization nightmare behind!!

Either that, or we are looking at the second Fall of the Roman Empire.

Do we really want to relive that??
