Glenn Beck and the desire to kill

 The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner

by John Benneth, PG Hom. – London (Hons.)

“Learn to keep the ideal of Homeopathy in mind, and think rationally; in order to do that you will have to rid yourselves of a tremendous amount of inheritance.” (Kent)

February 2, 2011

Reports have it he was a trouble maker. He liked to start trouble for the sake of starting trouble.

Here’s how I have analyzed his case. I’ve taken reported symptoms that seem to me to be relevant and recorded the remedies indicated by those symptoms. Of course not being able to directly interview Mr. Loughner I am making some guesses about what I assume some of his symptoms to be. Others are reported. This most likely is not an accuate portrayal of a complex case, but it illustrates how a homeopath works.

First off, read the reports of how erratically and manic Loughner was acting, and then take a look at his mug shot. He’s looking directly into the camera and he’s smiling. Any good homeopath is going to see inappropriate smiling as a tip off to one remedy . .  Belladonna is the Deadly Nightshade.

That would be the first administration. But as we go deeper into the case, other things pop up, and Belladonna is not a remedy for repetition, unless you want to put your client in the loony bin. Repeated doses of Belladonna can aggravate, severely. I know of one homeopath who prescribed repeated doses of Belladonna to a patient who he assessed as having a Belladonna constitutional profile. It worked at first an then the man had a relaapse.The guy ended up in a psychiatric ward. The homeopath, an M.D. who often bring their allopathic tendencies with them into homeopathy, ascribed the man’s relapse into madness as a result of failing to take enough Belladonna.

“Belladonna is a remedy that takes hold of the system with great violence. It is especially suitable to plethoric, vigorous individual, and intellectual people brainy people have complaints coming on suddenly, providing they are in a substantial state of health, and are reasonably plethoric and vascular.” (Kent)

This is a rough business to be in. Not for crybabies or little kids, or adults who are riding on nothing more than an education in internal medicine sponsored by Pfizer. You have to really bear down on these this materia medica and know its insides and outs.

 Belladonna is not suitable for those numerous recurrent complaints, even though the single attack should be mitigated with Bell. Take any of these attacks; whether they are convulsions or headaches, or congestion of the brain, they are running down and become excitable, take on congestive attacks of the head, go right to bed, and roll the head.You treat those with    Belladonna.; the attack is relieved. Take notice, I start out by saying this is only one of a series. You may not know it. This may be the first one.You reduce that one, and when that same exposure comes again, that same attack comes back; but Belladaonna does less this time than it did before. After two or three attacks Bell. will do no more and you are worse off this time than you were before.When it has broken the first one the physician should see that this is one of a series, and that Belladonna is not suitable. Often it is a case that needs Calc., I say often, not always.” (Kent)So after that first dose of Belladonna, 10M, where do we go? The biggest problem in medicine is abandoning the patient after the first treatment. We have to stay with him with an assertive protocol if need be.Sometimes though, one dose of a remedy is enough to trigger a reaction.Let’s look at some more information about Mr. Loughner:

In high school Loughner was “very sweet, caring and kind, had no interest in drugs or alcohol, and had a big interest in music,” his girlfriend said.. “He didn’t start acting differently until after we had been broken up.”

Mind, love, ailments, from disappointed: Ant-c. Aur. Calc-p. Caust. Cimic. Coff. Hell. HYOS. IGN. Kali-c. Lach. NAT-M. Nux-m. Nux-v. PH-AC. Sep. Staph. Tarent.

The Loughners were very private, neighbors said. “They’re like a mountain man. They want to be alone,” said a neighbor.

Mind, alone: Aeth. Agar. Ant-t. APIS ARS. Asaf. Bell. Bism. Bov. Bufo Calc. Camph. Carc. Cedr. Clem. CON. DROS. Elaps FL-AC. Gels. HEP. HYOS. Kali-br. KALI-C. Lach. Lil-t. LYC. MERC. Mez. Nat-c. Nat-m. Ph-ac. PHOS. Plb. Ran-b. Sep. Sil. Stann. STRAM. Tarent. Zinc.

A classmate reported that in 2006 Loughner had alcohol poisoning:

Poisoning from alcohol: ARS. Aur. Bell. Berb. Calc-ar. CARB-V. Chin. Croto-t. Cupr. Ferr. Lach. Led. Merc. Nat-c. Nux-v. Sulph

Notice that Belladonna is once again indicated here. The problem that I have with “alcohol poisoning” is that it’s a clinical distinction. It matches a remedy to a presumed cause, not a symptom. That’s not how we homeopaths operate. We look for symptoms to guide us to the remedy, not causes. It’s a major distinction in homeopathic treatment that a lot of people don’t ever get over. So I don’t trust clinical distinctions without collateral support. And I think its an interesting consideration, and it wouldn’t be listed in my rep if it didn’t have some meaning. But never trust a remedy from clinical use alone. If you think clinical shit works, go get some more chemo the next time you get cancer. Then see what your symptoms are. That’s “clinical” thinking.

I assume that he had an obsession with guns and dreamed about them. But this is only a presumption.

Dreams, guns: Clad-r.

Clad-r is Cladonia rangferina, Reindeer moss, from the Artic. It is a plant that survives in a high stress environment. And the proving of Clad-r orbits around a deep sense of insecurity.

Loughner was a reported Cannabis addict who quit after he had failed a military pee test. Anyone who has had a history of Cannabis abuse has a predilection to violence when getting off the drug. This has been a noted feature of cannabis poisoning I found in an old psychiatry text, and its been my confirming observation of it as well. When potheads don’t get their weed they can become crybabies and start acting out. This particular distinction probably flies udner the radar because of its ubiquitous use.

Anybody who has smoked marijuana and is presenting symptoms of Cann. poisoning should be treated for it homeopathically with a high dilute of Cann.- ind, Loughner included.

What compels me to list guns as dreaming is that the gun is perhaps the most featured item in the entertainment world, a form of lucid dreaming. If you’re without a reasonable plot line in your drama, then find a gun and give it to someone who’s insane, and then you have an interesting story. Gunfire is the most prevalent feature in the media, both news and fiction.

I like these one remedy symptoms, especially when they’re unusual remedies, like Clad-r. None of the old repertories list it, and so its indication has not been proven by years of use, but by a more recent preoving.

However, I’m taking liberties here. One indication from one assumed criterion isn’t enough to decide on a remedy unless it’s a highly unusual symptom remedy and there‘s nothing else that important. It doesn’t help unless it repeats. And I’m only assuming that he’s dreaming about guns. Maybe he dreams about lemon pie. I don’t know. This is only theoretical. I’m weighing presumptions against unknown facts that can only be ascertained by talking to the subject. I’m not getting any physical symptoms from this, which are extremely good at locating a remedy, especially unusual physical symptoms and feelings that can only be directly reported by the subject..

So naturally we are interested in other symptoms associated with Clad-r.

Loughner implied he suffered from insomnia:

He writes,

“All humans are in need of sleep.

“Jared Loughner is a human.

“Hence, Jared Loughner is in need of sleep.”

Loughner implies that he is sleepwalking.

“Sleepwalking

“If I define sleepwalking then sleepwalking is the act or state of walking, eating, or performing other motor acts while asleep, of which one is unaware upon awakening.

I define sleepwalking.

“Thus sleepwalking is the act or state of walking, eating, or performing other motor acts while asleep, of which one is unaware upon awakening.

“I’m a sleepwalker — who turns off the alarm clock.

“All conscience dreaming at this moment is asleep.”

There’s Kali bromatum (Kali-br.) again

Loughner makes an interesting and revealing statement about “conscience dreaming.” According to dream analysis, to dream that your conscience censures you for deceiving some one, denotes that you will be tempted to commit wrong and should be constantly on your guard . .

Mind, anxiety, conscience, anxiety of: Agath-a. AIDS Clad-r. Dream. Falco-p. Herin. Lava-f. LSD. Posit. Salx-f.

Loughner writes that his focus was on lucid dreaming.

Dreams, lucid: Salx-f.

Salix fragilis is another unusual remedy. Salx-f is the Crack Willow. It is a gnarled plant, at night taking on the twisted shapes of staggering and bent shapes, in the dark suddenly mistaken for human, or something grotesque.

A friend of his said Loughner thought he could fly.

Mind, delusions, flying: Asar. Camph. Cann-i. Cygnus-b. Falco-p. Jug-r. Lach. LSD. Oena. Op. Salx-f.

Friends said he would grab his crotch:

Mind, gestures, hands, grasping, genitals, at during spasms: Sec. Stram.

He posed in red bikini underwear with gun

Mind, phenomena, shameless, lewd, nudity: Anac. Bufo Camph. Cann-s. Canth. Hell. HYOS. Merc-c. Murx. Nux-m. Nux-v. Op. Phos. Phyt. Plat. Sabin. STRAM. VERAT.

Mind, delusions, reality has fragmented: LSD.

He writes about “conscience dreaming.”

Mind, anxiety of conscience: Agath-a. AIDS, Clad-r. Dream. Falco-p. Herin. Lava-f. LSD. Posit. Salx-f.

Interesting . . There’s Cladonia rangferina and Salix fragilis again.

Mind, delusions about violence: Kali-br.

Mind, kill, desire to: Agar. AIDS Anac. Ars-i. Ars. Bell. Calc. Camph. Chin. Clad-r. Cupr. Cur. HEP. HYOS. Iod. Lach. Lyss. Merc. Nux-v. Op. Petr. Phos. Plat. Posit. Sec. Sil. Stram. Syph. Thea

Mind, delusions, about to commit a crime: Kali-br.

“He had an intense stare, but he usually didn’t stare at other people,” said Kent Slinker, who taught an “Intro to Logic” class attended by Loughner. “He would have a focused stare some place else in the room, and almost as if he was viewing another scene or intensely thinking about something.”

Mind, delirium, look fixed on one point staring: Art-v. Bov. Camph. Canth. CIC. Clad-r. COCC. Cupr. Dream. Herin. Hyos. Ign. Posit. Ran-b. Ruta Salx-f. Squil. STRAM.

As a student at Aztec Middle College in Tucson, Arizona, Loughner was prone to sudden outbursts in class, teachers said. Loughner often spoke out of turn and asked questions unrelated to the class topic, leading Slinker to assume the student had Tourette Syndrome

Loughner spoke excitedly about becoming a writer and told an indecipherable story about an angel talking to a reporter after the end of the world.

Mind, speech, strange: Aether Cham. Gall-ac.

He’d ask “incoherent” questions and make inappropriate comments.

Mind, speech, incoherent: Absin. Aether Agar. Alco-s. Amyg-am. Anac. Arg-n. Ars. Bapt. Bell. BRY. Cact. Calad. Camph. CANN-I. Cham. Chel. Chlol. Crot-h. Cub. Cupr. Cycl. Dulc. Falco-p. Gels. Hep.

Mind, speech, confused: Bell. Bry. Calc. Cann-s. Caust. Cham. Crot-c. Crot-h. Gels. Hyos. Lach. LSD. Lyc. Med. Mosch. Nat-m. Nux-m. Sec. Stram. Thuj.

Loughner writes,

“Terrorist

“If I define terrorist then a terrorist is a person who employs terror or terrorism, especially as a political weapon.

“I define terrorist.

“Thus, a terrorist is a person who employs terror or terrorism, especially as a political weapon.

“If you call me a terrorist then the argument to call me a terrorist is Ad hominem.

“You call me a terrorist.

“Thus, the argument to call me a terrorist is Ad hominem.”

“Terror” is used a dozen times here.

Mind, fancies, frightful: Merc. OP. STRAM.

Mind, rage, kill people, tries to: Hep. HYOS. Sec. Stram.

Repertorization is like a horse race. I catch myself to be betting on a particular remedy and then as it draws back and another begins to take over, I still want the old favorite to win.

When first cross indexing one remedy, Kali bromatum raised its head above the others, mainly because it is the only remedy indicated by two unusual but seemingly significant symptoms (delusions of about to commit a crime and delusions of violence), another unusual symptom (somnambulism); indicated also by sleeplessness; the desire to kill, and, as is evident in his writing, repeating not just words, but entire sentences.

That should be enough to give us a rich field of potential remedies to consider.

Lachesis looks like a good remedy. It meets 11 of the criteria which have a total value of 11. However, motiveless mass murders are extreme, strange and rare acts, apparently motiveless murder sprees, acts of insanity. This one doesn’t seem to even be politically motivated as much as left wing pundits are trying to get everyone to believe (doesn’t excuse the right wing pundits for their hate speech).

Although I must say, Glenn Beck did instruct his viewers to shoot liberals in the head.

It is a are and extravagant pleasure for me to think that one man, such as Loughner, can hold the fate of an entire network in his words. All he has to do is say that on February 16 he was watching Glenn Beck on a broadcast of Fox News’ Fox & Friends when he was instructed repeatedly by Glenn Beck to “shoot him in the head, he’s the bad guy.” ANdhwat are they going to do? Have Sean Hannity apolgize for it?

One commenter on this video, “@BloodRedChorizo wrote “This is at least the sixth time I know of that Glenn Beck has issued a death threat. He’s joked about putting poison in Pelosi’s wine. He straight out said he would kill Michael Moore. Beck told Democrats like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi had used progressive revolutionaries to gain power and that the only way to stop them would be to “shoot them in the head.” He said the only way to stop President Obama would be to “drive a stake through the heart.”

Here is the video clip of Beck instructing Loughner to “shoot them in the head,” them being Liberals like Gabrielle Giffords.

Maybe Hartmann was right. Maybe it was Beck who sent his lookalike over the edge with the subtext, “you’ll be a hero.“

Maybe Hartmann, Mike Malloy and Randi Rhodes are right. If so, then who are the suspected killers within the homeopathic materia medica?

Who would actually carry out Beck’s commands?

The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner” by John Benneth, PG Hom. – London (Hons.)

The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner- Intro

It was a known fact. I had promised my next blog would be The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner, but I had left something crucial out of the “Theory for the Structure and Action of the Homeopathic Remedy.”
I had to get drunk.
I told my wife that it was time for my bi-monthly bottle.
She said go and get it.
I got in the car and drove to the liquor store.
The woman who I saw last night was there in the back room.
“I thought you said Sally would be here, “ I said.

Loughner or Beck?

She looked at me puzzled.
“When did I say that?” she said.
“Last night, at the Chinese restaurant.”
She remembered.
“Oh yeah,” she smiled coyly.
I turned my attention started looking at the vodkas. For some reason my mind goes blank when I look at booze. If I was thinking, I’d get a bottle of Whaler’s dark rum. There‘s nothing better or smoother than Whalers.
But for some reason I always get whiskey.
My mind scanned the bottles of vodka in front of me. I wanted vodka because of the experiments at the University of Cincinnati and Moscow State University that showed clathrates in vodkas affected taste.
Linus Pauling said clathrates are what get you drunk.
I wanted vodka.
The only problem with vodka is that the only time I’ve had anything close to an alcoholic blackout was on vodka. I wrote email I couldn’t remember writing.
But it was coherent and right on.
Once when drinking vodka I slammed my finger in the car door and didn’t feel it until a day later.
I also needed help getting from a young lady the beach back to the car . . or so I am told.
Amnesia it seems comes with every bottle of vodka.
It suddenly hits me. I should start a creep show franchise so these little sawed off runts, like the Amazing Randi, could have something to do other than becoming scientists.

I looked at the whiskeys. Here was familiar territory. I lived for years on Kessler’s when I was in Virginia City, Nevada.

Every day I would trundle up to the Sugar Loaf Grocery and buy a half pint from Seven Fingered Dan, the long haired fat bastard who ran the joint. Then I got it in my head to buy a big bottle to save money and give it to the woman who was living with me to hide and ration out.
That’s how I controlled my drinking habit.

I tell you, the best cure yet for drinking is to live with a raving alcoholic. The only time I could imbibe was when the drunk I had taken in, a poet, was not plastered.
In homeopathy we call that similia.
Maybe its nothing more than an inherent ability to be the designated non drinker, an inspiration to attend AA meetings blotto.

I think of all the lives I would save.

Yesterday I was on Skype with Kaviraj and John Board. Board is the man who invented the Hollywood Survival Kit. It is a packet full of homeopathic remedies to help people put up with the worthless bullshit you have to endure in such a place.
Kaviraj and Board were whining about a Canadian Broadcast Corposation (CBC) special on homeopathy that gave der party line, jawohl, sieg heil Pfizer.
My answer was to respond to it homeopathically, with similia.

“Call for a Fatwa on homeopaths, just as the Canadian Broadcasting System is calling for us to do,”  I said.

It was suggested that we go to meetings of the homeopathy haters and interrupt them, blow whistles and such.

“No, please don’t try to drown them out,” I pleaded. “That’s allopathic. Apply homeopathy. Join their cause and start acting like them, except worse, like total Fascists, become worse than them, brownshirts, slightly nuts, then totally over the top, rabid mad dogs. Rather than try to suppress the symptoms by drowning them out, or disrupting their meetings by arguing with them, do just the opposite. Apply similia! Start out repeating the same tired old crap about Avogadro’s limit; placebo; it’s just water; then slowly ramp it up, becoming oddly unreasonable about it, sinister and then downright evil. Suck them in.

Author, self portrait

“Tell people they can get paid by the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (IFPMA) to trash homeopathy. Demand that the government ban it. Call for obloquy (public disgrace) of homeopaths; burn Hahnemann in effigy; stage a book burning of the Organon. Create compelling spectacles. Put a ‘homeopath’ in the stocks, call for public executions, torture to extract confessions, firing squads, electric chairs, hangings, the gas chamber, the arrest of anyone caught using homeopathy, millions to be put on trial and given life sentences.
“TOTALLY NUTS.
“The signs you hold should also follow similia for homeopathy bashing. They should be as unreasonable as reasonably possible.
“Kill a homeopath for Simon Singh . . and Hitler.”
“HOMEOPATHY = NEW AGE MADNESS”
“I HATE HOMEOPATHY TOO”.
“ARYAN NATIONS HATES HOMEOPATHY!”
“ARYAN NATIONS SUPPORT SIR JOHN BEDDINGTON”
“HOMEOPATHY JEWISH PLOT”
“UK MDs DON’T LIKE IT, NEITHER DID MENGELE”
“HOMEOPATHY DESTROYS CAPITALISM”
“ALLOPATHS KNOW BEST”
HOMEOPATHY ROBS BIG PHARMA”
“If people hear really wild and crazy rhetoric coming from what appear to be homeopathy opponents, they’ll think maybe there’s actually something to it. Say John Beddington, Simon Singh, Edzard Ernst and the other usual miscreants encouraged you to do it. Cheer them on but do it in the insane extreme.

An interesting thing happened. They went inside. They closed up shop. John Board got up and left the room.

Kaviraj, the world’s greatest living homeopath, turned to his work, writing.

I found a bottle of “Ancient Age, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.”

The legend said, “Steeped in history and tradition, Ancient Age Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has been branded America’s best bourbon.”
For the price.
Good enough for me.
I took it to the check out stand. There was a woman in front of me. I could see I was an object of her attention., so I began looking for a miniature bottle of that . . green stuff.
They were selling it, or they had been. I couldn’t find it.
It used to be illegal because it drove people mad. Made from wormwood. There is a homeopathic remedy made from it as a cure for the anemia suffered by virgins. The old maid’s remedy. A disease as rare in the West as the bourbon I was buying was advertised to be.
It is of interesting note to me that absence of coitus causes anemia . . or maybe it’s the other way around. Purely a scientific interest on my part as a homeopathic physician. I have no personal interest in it. I got married so I wouldn’t have to have sex anymore . . or at least any dull sex.
Then again . . maybe I do need it . .
Excuse me lest I gain some undeserved readership from those last observations, let me say I’m a flaming liberal and I hate Fox News, especially Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
Speaking of which, have you noticed that Jared Lee Loughner looks exactly like a Glenn Beck with his head shaved? And did you know that Glenn Beck told Loughner to do what he did?

Glenn Beck, or Jared Lee Loughner unshaven?

Here is a transcript from Glenn Beck on Fox News June 9th, 2010
Beck said “I will stand against you and so will millions of others. We believe in something. You in the media and most in Washington don’t. The radicals that you and Washington have co-opted and brought in wearing sheep’s clothing — change the pose. You will get the ends. You’ve been using them. They believe in Communism. They believe and have called for a revolution. You’re going to have to shoot them in the head. But warning, they may shoot you. They are dangerous because they believe. Karl Marx is their George Washington. You will never change their mind. And if they feel you have lied to them — they’re revolutionaries. Nancy Pelosi, those are the people you should be worried about. Here is my advice when you’re dealing with people who believe in something that strongly — you take them seriously. You listen to their words and you believe that they will follow up with what they say. Didn’t we learn that lesson from Usama bin Laden? I heard his warning in 1998. I said on the air at the time, listen to him. We didn’t listen. We didn’t listen to the revolutionaries in Germany, the revolutionaries in Russia or Venezuela or Cuba — no, no, no. They all have one thing in common. They have all called for revolution. They want to overthrow our entire system of government, and their words say it. Why won’t you believe it?”

The woman at the check stand in front of me was checking me out. I could see her glancing at me from out of the corner of my eye.

I had left out a miserable part of my last blog, the part that explained the relevant parts of Montagnier’s discoveries, the item about high dilutes becoming inert in mu metal boxes.

Isolated from the background radiation, the higher potency becomes silent in the presence of the lower potency . . or at least, so they say.
