New Luka Magnotta book captures a mother’s unconditional love for a sadistic killer

My Son, The Killer

Did Anna Yourkin — mother of Luka Magnotta — even resist going with that title for her recently published book, written with Brian Whitney?

For a woman who claims that she was sickened by trauma, crazed with anguish when her eldest child was arrested and ultimately convicted of first-degree murder in the sadistic sexual killing and dismemberment of international student Jun Lin; who, like her son, rails against the treatment the family suffered at the hands of predatory media — she’s certainly played the sensationalism card to push sales.

Subtitle: The Untold Story of Luka Magnotta and “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick.”

Magnotta, né Eric Newman, was the porn actor, model and gay escort who hooked up with Lin on Craigslist, then turned their Montreal date into a crime of unimaginable horrors — raping his bound victim, stabbing Lin at least 55 times, committing unspeakable abominations upon the poor man’s corpse, cutting the body into pieces, playing with his decapitated head, masturbating himself with a severed limb, sodomizing the torso, and finally disposing of the remains in garbage bags and a suitcase. (Stopping in the lobby to primp and preen in front of a mirror).

No imagining required. Magnotta made a snuff video of the entire thing and uploaded the footage to a website specializing in gore, even marshalling online traffic by beating the promotional drum, under various handles, on other social media sites. That video was entitled “1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick.”

Then, after mailing various body parts to political offices in Ottawa and two Vancouver schools, Magnotta jaunted off to Europe, arrested weeks later on an Interpol warrant at an internet café in Berlin, where he’d been eyeballing news coverage of the crime and the international manhunt.

In first-person chapters — alternating with Whitney chapters that include his prison interviews and written correspondence with Magnotta — Yourkin makes it clear that she loves her son unconditionally. A mother’s love can withstand anything. Although their closeness, as Yourkin recounts it, the co-birthday celebrations, the luxury vacations they took together as adults — she was only 16 when Luka was born — is rather creepy.

“Because of chance and choice, I have a son in my life whom I adore. I will stand by him, support, and protect him as long as there is breath in my body.”

Yourkin admits the poor choices she made in men, including the stepfather who physically and emotionally abused Luka. While coping with her violent partners, she clearly tried to do her best by her oddball son, always remaining in close contact. But nowhere does she even attempt to explain how Luka turned into a monster, apart from blaming various medical authorities for failing to properly diagnose and treat her son’s mental illnesses over the years. Yourkin is adamant Luca was never schizophrenic — the defence put forward at the three-month trial in 2014, in hopes of securing a “not criminally responsible” (NCR) verdict.

The jury didn’t buy it anyway.

Like mother, like son, on that score.

“It’s very annoying,” Magnotta tells Whitney. “I never wanted anything to do with the NCR defence.”

Just a legal ploy, Magnotta insists, speaking for the first time since he was handed a life sentence for first-degree murder, indignity to a body and other charges, with no parole eligibility for 25 years.

“I have no mental illness whatsoever. I had to go with it, even though I didn’t want to, but my lawyers pressured me into it. I told the doctors I had no mental illness. Even now in prison I take no medications, but the lawyers said our only chance was to go with the NCR defence.

“I wish I didn’t do it. I wish I testified and told the story my way.”

Which doubtless would have been a load of lying rubbish.

Magnotta is adamant with Whitney that he never posted the snuff video. That was “Manny.”

The same “Manny” — no one has ever uncovered proof that he exists — who earlier had filmed Magnotta killing kittens and put that video online. (Animal rights activists were hunting him on the internet.)

The same “Manny” who cut him, spit on him, forced him to have sex with animals and threatened to kill him if he didn’t do his bidding.

The same “Manny” who kept calling Magnotta, who wanted a threesome with Lin, kept calling and calling the apartment on that “date night” and ordered Magnotta to turn on the webcam so he, Whitney writes, “could be a part of what was going on.”

The same Manny who, in Whitney’s as-told-to account, made Lin tie Magnotta up and then violently sexually assault him to the point that Magnotta sobbed.

There are no direct quotations about what happened next, doubtless because Magnotta has never admitted to the murder. But Whitney describes Magnotta as hearing voices in his head, even as “Manny,” on the phone, suggested Lin had put something in his drink, that maybe Lin is a government agent — look outside for cars with tinted windows.

Whitney writes: “He was scared. He was dizzy. He heard voices saying, ‘Kill him; he is an agent.’ Luka’s mind started racing. He blacked out. He felt something wet. He heard voices. They said, ‘Cut it.’ He felt sick. He threw up. Manny said, ‘I’ll handle everything.’ Luka was shaking all over. Manny told him to start throwing things away in the trash. Lin was on the bed with no arms and no legs.”

There has never been any convincing explanation for the why of what Magnotta did, beyond a general consensus of narcissism, his need to be famous, even if that hinged on a ghastly crime that included necrophilia and, apparently, cannibalism. (Magnotta slicing strips of flesh from his victim, seeming to be preparing to eat it.)

Magnotta: “I am frequently being portrayed as this fame-starved unstable person. This inaccurate spin could not be further from the truth. This label is getting old. The truth is I have never requested or participated in any interview with any media outlets in the last seven years. Hardly the act of someone addicted to attention…

“Other people’s opinions of me mean absolutely nothing. I ignore the noise that other people rant. The people who know me know Manny. So when idiots were not witness to the events and who weren’t even there give their opinion, who cares, they are completely irrelevant.”

Prison, Magnotta tells Whitney, is not so bad. “I’m outside the majority of the time; I play a lot of video games. We have movie nights. We all have our own TVs. I have painting class and I exercise a lot. I practice language studies. People need to be proud of their accomplishments. Know your value and share it with everyone.”

Last June, Magnotta married a fellow inmate, Anthony Jolin. Mom attended the wedding.

“It didn’t matter to me where the wedding was taking place, for to me it was a milestone in my son’s life, a day that mothers hope for. We always hope our children will find love and happiness and mine did.”

These US entities partnered with the Wuhan Institute of Virology — time for a criminal investigation?

admin

Published

By

(Natural News) The Wuhan Institute of Virology from which the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is believed to have “escaped” has a number of questionable partnerships that are worth looking into in light of the pandemic.

Most of them are universities, including the University of Alabama, the University of North Texas, and Harvard University. There is also the EcoHealth Alliance, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Wildlife Federation.

While the relationships between these entities and the Wuhan Institute of Virology may be completely innocent, there is no way to really say for sure without a proper investigation. And this is exactly what Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is calling for, as is the nation of Australia.

Pompeo and the folks down under, along with millions of Americans, would really like to know the true origins of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). An increasing number of people simply are not buying the narrative that the novel virus originated in bat soup at a Chinese wet market, and this even includes mainstream media outlets like Fox News.

The only way to really determine what was going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and who else might have been involved. is to open the place up for an international investigation. But communist China is against this, of course, accusing Australia of “petty tricks” and collusion with the United States.

“Overnight, I saw comments from the Chinese Foreign Ministry talking about a course of activity with respect to Australia who had the temerity to ask for investigation,” Pompeo is quoted as saying in response to China’s aggression against a proposed investigation.

“Who in the world wouldn’t want an investigation of how this happened to the world?” he added.

As the U.S. aims to get back on track economically speaking, Pompeo believes that now is the time to hold communist China, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and whoever else may have been involved accountable for unleashing this pandemic on the world.

“Not only American wealth, but the global economy’s devastation as a result of this virus,” Pompeo further stated. “There will be a time for this. We will get that timing right.”

New U.S. analysis finds that lab in Wuhan, China was “most likely” origin of coronavirus release

(Natural News) While American Leftists and most of the Democrat Party continue to serve as apologists for the Chinese Communist regime over its role in creating and then perpetuating the coronavirus pandemic, a new U.S. government analysis concludes that COVID-19 “most likely” escaped from a lab near Wuhan city.

The Washington Times reports that the analysis cataloged evidence linking the outbreak to the Wuhan lab and has found that other explanations for the origins of the virus are not as credible.

The paper reported:

The document, compiled from open sources and not a finished product, says there is no smoking gun to blame the virus on either the Wuhan Institute of Virology or the Wuhan branch of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, both located in the city where the first outbreaks were reported.

However, “there is circumstantial evidence to suggest such may be the case,” the paper says.

“All other possible places of the virus’ origin have been proven to be highly unlikely,” said the report, a copy of which was obtained by the Times.

ChiCom officials have claimed that the virus’ origin is unknown. However, Beijing initially stated that coronavirus came from animals at a “wet market” in Wuhan where exotic meats are butchered and sold in disgusting conditions.

Chinese officials claim that COVID-19 went from bats to animals sold in the market last year, then infected humans.

U.S. intelligence officials have increasingly dismissed that explanation, however, as attention has begun to focus on evidence suggesting that Chinese medical researchers were working with coronavirus in the country’s only Level 4 facility, which is in Wuhan.

U.S. Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said that intelligence agencies are investigating whether the virus escaped from a lab or was the result of a naturally occurring outbreak, but that analysts have ruled out reports that COVID-19 was manmade.

‘The most logical place to investigate the virus origin has been completely sealed off’

“At this point, it’s inconclusive, although the weight of evidence seems to indicate natural,” the general said on April 14, “but we don’t know for certain.”

The analysis said that the wet market explanation does not ring true because the first human diagnosis of coronavirus was made in someone who had no connection to the wet market in question. And according to Chinese reports, no bats were sold at that particular market.

At the same time, several questionable actions and a growing paper trail provide clues that the virus actually escaped from a lab, even as China begins to clamp down on those information streams.

The biggest media lies about the coronavirus: Origins, treatments and vaccines

(Natural News) If there is one thing that most everyone can agree on concerning the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is the fact that there is no shortage of conflicting information out there about the nature of it. And the mainstream media is certainly doing its part to steer the narrative as part of a larger agenda, using plenty of misinformation along the way.

The following are among the most commonly parroted lies about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that aim to distort the facts and deceive you into believing falsehoods about this pandemic:

Media LIE: The virus is not man-made

From the very beginning of this thing, the official narrative was that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) came from a Chinese wet market where bats and other “exotic” animals are sold as meat. But the world later learned that it actually more than likely “escaped” from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The mainstream media and social media platforms went nuts trying to censor this information and even called it  “fake news.” But eventually it became undeniable that bat soup was not responsible for spreading the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) around Wuhan and eventually to the rest of the world – hence why we continue to call it the Wuhan coronavirus rather than just COVID-19.

We have even seen attempts by the media machine at making the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) a racial issue because there are supposedly more “people of color” coming down with it than people with fair skin, which further detracts attention away from the source of this virus.

Media LIE: Hydroxychloroquine is extremely dangerous and doesn’t work

The minute that President Donald Trump announced that hydroxychloroquine may be an effective, and very inexpensive, remedy for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), the mainstream media immediately began decrying this claim as fake news, even though Anthony Fauci himself praised hydroxychloroquine back in 2013 under Barack Obama as being some type of “miracle cure” for SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome).

There have even been studies conducted that were designed to intentionally smear the drug as both ineffective and dangerous, though one in particular purposely left out zinc, which appears to be a critical co-factor in supporting the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine – in other words, politics as usual.

Media LIE: Only a vaccine can save us from coronavirus

Many politicians and public health officials are parroting the lie that the only way America can come out of lockdown and go back to “normal” is to get vaccinated with some future vaccine for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that does not even yet exist. A vaccine, we are repeatedly told, is the only thing, or perhaps some new “blockbuster” antiviral drug, that can cure the world of this scourge and make everything happy and wonderful once again.

Meanwhile, not a peep is being made about things like intravenous (IV) high-dose vitamin C, which is being successfully used in other countries to stem the tide of infections without the need for new drugs and vaccines.

By omission, nutrition is pointless

Speaking of natural approaches to overcoming the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that are being systematically ignored by the mainstream media and most in politics, have you heard anyone mention the importance of nutrition in all of this? We did not think so, and this is intentional.

Regular readers of this site over the years should know by now that the single-most important thing you need to do to stay healthy besides exercising regularly is to feed your body the nutrition it needs to naturally ward off illnesses, including those associated with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

Research compiled by the Lewin Group reveals that nutritional remedies such as calcium, vitamin D, folate, omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zeaxanthin, and more all play a critical role in fortifying the immune system, which, if properly nourished, should have little problem fending off disease.
