Socialism isn't an ideology. It's a pathology. Apply the vaccine this November 3rd.

1. Good News

Item 1. It's too early to bring you the good news that the socialists have failed to bully and brainwash enough American voters to put Harris/Biden in the Whitehouse. But here is some encouragement so you don't lose sleep while waiting to see if that dreadful possibility becomes reality. Read this uplifting analysis:

Item 2. There are consequences to socialism, and the good news is the CEO of a Florida company armed his employees with some knowledge in that regard. Read the full story here:

Item 3. "A total of 353 of the 3,141 counties in America located in 29 of the nation’s 50 states have 1.8 million more registered voters than residents, new data analysis reveals"; read the full story here: How can this possibly be good news? The fact we know about it is good news. There may be something that can be done about the rampant fraud that results in socialists and other damaging people being "elected" again and again (Joe Biden immediately comes to mind, what a terrible track record). There's an old joke about the Chicago "election" process that is controlled by the Democrats. In Chicago, huge numbers of dead people vote in every election. They always vote Democrat, and they vote in alphabetical order.

The Democrats also like mail-in voting because they can count on their acolytes to interfere with the process, preventing non-Democrats from even receiving their ballot. See this, for example: With the civil war (Antifa, BLM, defund police, riots, looting, killing police, etc.) being waged by "Democrat" (socialist) insurgents with active encouragement from AOC and other high-profile "Democrats", the stakes are far higher now. So there is more vigilance against the rampant fraud. The 2020 election may be the cleanest one in decades, taking away from the Democrats their main advantage (the ability to blatantly cheat). That could mean a return to sanity and civility in American politics and government.

Item 4. Twitter, like most tech companies, has an extremely leftist culture. And like most leftwing organizations, it helps distort reality for millions of voters. Its latest attempt to do this backfired, causing a doubling of shares of the Post article about Hunter Biden's criminal misconduct. This in itself is good news, and even better it is resulting in a sharp decline of trust between these kinds of firms and their users. It is getting harder and harder to brainwash people. The violations of trust are just so frequent and so egregious that the credibility of these companies is gone. The same thing happened with the legacy media. They spewed so much BS so often that people just began tuning them out. Newspaper circulation barely exists today for this reason. The reality distortion was so great and the BS so disgusting that people stopped subscribing.

Item 5. The Evil Empire (Google) finally got into serious legal trouble in the USA. This nefarious outfit lost four, count them, four, huge cases in Europe and is still appealing the massive fines. In the USA, where Google enjoyed having powerful politicians and even judges on its payroll,  the company long avoided not only paying income taxes but ignoring laws that other businesses are required to follow. The good news is, thanks in no small part to Trump's swamp draining, the DOJ and 11 states have filed a federal lawsuit against Google. Read the full story here: It's always good news when morally bankrupt companies get reined in by the authorities. Let's hope some Google executives go to prison where they belong. You can help the cause of justice by not using Google for search.

Item 5. The state-run, Marxist media have been spinning yarns as usual, and the "Hunter Biden" lies are finally catching up to them. Thanks to actual journalists (people who research the facts and report them rather than make up stuff to defend their political narrative), we now have proof that Hunter himself dropped off that laptop.

I personally have not followed this story. Why bother, since we know this charade of an election is between a mentally retarded man with a dismal record and a high IQ man whose performance in office has been mostly A+. Seems like the whole point of the Democrat strategy is to avoid putting a Democrat in the White House. Then again, Biden is not really a Democrat. He was the only one on Soetoro's team to object to sending Seal Team 6 to take out Osama Bin Laden. What would that actually make him? Something not good, that's for sure.

Item 6. This is huge. Read the full story here:

Item 7. Not only is spinach a super food that you should be eating copious amounts of regularly (if you eat wheat, for example, replace that toxic grain with spinach for a massive health boost), it beats platinum as a fuel cell catalyst. Read the full story here:

Item 8. The Cleveland Clinic has stopped (ab)using live animals to train surgeons. I wonder how many people would approve of using live humans to train veterinarians in surgery?

Item 9. You're no doubt aware by now that on 26 OCT, Justice Barrett was confirmed. This is good news in multiple ways. If you don't already subscribe to the Epoch Times, read their take on it here:

Item 10. Under Barry Soetoro, you never heard of reports like this one: The socialists and others demented with Trump Derangement Syndrome talk about "defeating Trump and healing America". So they would discontinue the Trump administration's successful program to end human trafficking cartels. They would also let violent criminals out of jail, defund the police, and disarm law-abiding citizens while continuing to encourage rioting, looting, and burning; all of which would be exacerbated by another economic shutdown to "protect" us from the relatively tiny threat posed by Covid-19.*

The good news at Biden rallies hardly anybody shows up but at Trump rallies the crowds are massive and excited. That's a good sign for the upcoming rigged election, because there is a limit to how many people can vote three times or vote while dead. The vast majority of working, middle class Americans support Trump. The growing number of Trump supporters is much larger than in 2016, so even with all the dead Democrats voting and all the other normal election fraud, a victory for sanity is almost certain. In a few days, we will see whether my positive assessment is reality (unless the socialists drag things out with court challenges, etc.).

Item 11. The Trump economy grew 33.1%, a record, during the third quarter. Here's one article about this:

Of course, this reality does not fit with the libtard narrative so libtards still say they want to "defeat Trump and heal America" even though Trump's actions have hugely benefitted America and the only healing that needs to be done is due to the outrageous incivility, looting, burning, murder, and mayhem conducted entirely by the left. Let us hope that in the "battleground states" voters overwhelmingly believe in the truth instead of the preposterous narrative. Do your part, and reach out to people you know in any of those states. The six that appear to be most critical are Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona, and Florida.

Item 12. The execs at Wal-Mart stood up to socialism and decided they don't have a right to do an end run around a basic civil right. Who woulda thunk? That's good news in itself, read the full story here: What's also good news is this sets an example for other retailers. Take Dick's for example. The CEO believes that only Nancy Pelosi and other criminals should be able to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Dick's even went so far as to violate age discrimination laws by refusing to sell ammunition to customers under 21, including a Dick's employee! That's why Dick's is under a national boycott. Be sure you don't shop there for anything. Wal-Mart's decision as we approach the 03NOV referendum on whether to deep six our entire system in favor of Venezuelan-style socialism or to keep America is rather telling. Wal-Mart was either reading public sentiment (which is for keeping America) or is trying to influence it (because Wal-Mart would lose probably 80% of its revenue if the socialists take over).

Item 13. The community of black rappers is very supportive of the President. This story is one account:


* Here is where that asterisk leads to, regarding the statement Covid-19 is a relatively tiny threat:

  • Infection doesn't mean death, it merely means a person has the virus in their system. If my body encounters the virus, my body will annihilate it. That is the fate of every pathogen my body encounters.
  • In the USA:
    1. 80% of people who test positive have no symptoms.
    2. Among the other 20%, the symptoms for most are minor (fever, loss of sense of smell, etc.) and pass within two weeks
    3. 40% of the Covid deaths are in nursing homes.
    5. In July and August, the CDC reported that all of the documented cases of non-nursing home people who died from Covid showed all of them had metabolic syndrome. There is only one way you get metabolic syndrome, and that is to have a diet heavy in ultra-processed food.
  • There is a very simple solution to Covid:
    1. Stop subsidizing meat, wheat, corn, soy, and cane sugar. These are the causes of metabolic syndrome, especially when heavily processed (note, the meat is corn-fed beef).
    2. Take that same money and use it to subsidize fruits and vegetables.
    3. Strictly enforce a policy of social distancing and face coverings. This doesn't stop the virus, but it does slow down its spread. If you combine it with #1 and #2 above, the virus will run out of non-immune hosts and disappear--within weeks.
  • Of course, this is the sensible, rational, fact-based approach. A major failing of it is that it actually would work, thus taking away the primary benefit of the Covid-19 panic-demic (yes, panic), which is to use fear to increase the power of the control freaks who hate our freedoms.
  • We will always have a virus. This is Covid-19, there were other variations of Covid in prior years. The SARS outbreak was Covid. There's a disinfectant spray in USA called Lysol. Right on the can, it says that it kills Covid. It has said that since the 1960s.
  • We have had the vaccine since before there was Covid, it's called the produce department. People who take this vaccine do not exhibit symptoms of, much less die from, Covid.
  • Each day, more people die from sugar than from Covid. Yet, you do not see any reaction to the sugar epidemic; people accept it as just part of life. Sugar-related deaths can be painful, and sugar addicts have many debilitating health problems. This highly addictive drug is also what has driven our medical costs so staggeringly high. I hear all this idiotic talk about "national health care" and making it "affordable" with no mention of ending the sugar problem that causes our national medical care cost crisis.

3. Brainpower tip


Being late wastes the time of all concerned. If you call a meeting and decide to "wait five minutes for stragglers" and 10 other people are sitting there, you have just wasted 55 minutes of brainpower.

Do you know people who arrive at work just in the nick of time? Do they seem relaxed to you? Are they productive for their first hour? Yes, no, and no. Is that any way to set the tone for your work day? No. If you fall into this category, you can jump right how of it. I will tell you how, in a moment.

How I used to drive to appointments

  1. Determine driving time. Round up to nearest 15 minutes. So for 20 minute trip, I allow 30 minutes.
  2. Set reminder for me to leave so reminder alerts me 5 minutes before that.

How this turned out: I'd see the reminder, but not stop what I was doing because I wasn't at a good stopping point. Then I'd have to get ready (maybe change clothes, put on shoes, brush teeth, brush hair). And, oh, wait, did I remember to bring this or that? Or, gosh, these shoes need shining or this shirt isn't clean (how did THAT get back in my closet?), yet another thing making it hard for me to just leave the house.

So I would use up any extra time I had built in, and have to rush to get there. I would often arrive a bit frazzled.

How I drive to appointments now

  1. Determine driving time. Round up to nearest 15 minutes.
  2. Set reminder for me to leave, so reminder alerts me 30 minutes before that.
  3. Stop what I am doing, maybe 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Get ready; clothes, hair, phone, headset, whatever. Things that go with me get set by the door.
  5. When I am totally ready to go, there's plenty of time before I have to leave. I might check e-mail, do something in the kitchen, whatever, but only a quick task or two.
  6. Leave with about 10 to 15 minutes plus driving time.

How this turns out: I have a relaxed, unrushed drive to where I am going. If I encounter traffic, the extra time nearly always absorbs any delay and I'm still early. I arrive in a calm state of mind. I am far more efficient than I was using the old method. The early arrival can always be used for something and is never a waste of time. Because I don't arrive late, I don't cause others to waste their time waiting for me. Nor do I lose my "spot" to someone else, for example at the dentist, and consequently add 30 minutes to my appointment.

  • The first method is 95% reaction and 5% planning. Oh gosh, I have to leave in 5 minutes. Run around and rush out the door.
  • The second method is zero reaction and all planning. Stop well ahead of time and get all the preparation done. Then when it's time to go, I do not feel rushed.

People often say they perform best under pressure. This not only has no basis in fact, it is totally false. People perform markedly worse under pressure, and dozens of studies have shown this. The reason is when you are under pressure, your higher cognitive functions are shut down and your reptilian brain takes over. In sports when an athlete does this, we say that person "choked". He missed an easy putt on the golf course because he was under pressure, or he dropped the fly ball or whatever.

The second method does not involve "lollygagging" in any way. It moves preparatory actions "off the clock" so they are done better and more efficiently and so they don't need to be done in the too little time allotted by the first method.

You actually save time using the second approach.

4. Finance tip

The key point, reduce, is good financial advice. What you don't buy can't become trash.

5. Security tip

If you don't have your health, you don't have much. With all the talk about "being safe" during the Corona Virus Panic-demic, how can you secure your greatest asset?
  • The standard advice from medical experts is contrary to good health practices, with rare exceptions. For example, social distancing is pretty good advice. Using hand sanitizers is stupid; use soap and water, instead (soap disintegrates the virus shell). All of this relates to preventing contamination, which means if there is one little slip it could all be for naught.
  • Assume you will get infected. Have a plan such that in such an event, your body will destroy the virus. The core of that plan must involve zero tolerance for ultra-processed foods. Eliminate all wheat, corn, and soy from your diet. No sodas, crackers, cake, bread, etc. If it contains wheat, it is something you should not eat. This alone will increase your immunity by 10 orders of magnitude if you currently consume these items.
  • One of the apparent goals of this Panic-demic is to create even more anxiety than we have right now. The primary means for making people feel stressed out is "the news". Since "the news" is always negative, nearly always wrong, and almost never of any practical value, ignore it. Do not do news feeds, news shows, etc. Disable any such functions on any and all devices. Some people say they scan the headlines only, so they can be "informed". Yet, those headlines are usually misleading and this method gives you nothing other than a sound bit.
  • Rather than isolate socially, stupid advice in the extreme, make your social connections stronger. Go through your contact information and identify people who have made your life better in some way or people for whom you could do the same. Make a phone call, send a handwritten note, send a text, send an e-mail. Contact your closest friends more often, and make a point of having a substantive conversation. But set ground rules, such as no discussing politics (most people now identify by politics more than by family, and there is not civil discourse in this arena).
  • Most employers are severely stressed, due to inappropriate and ineffective rules decreed by government. To help your company survive, bring your A game every day.
  • If you decide to declutter, which a lot of people are doing during this slow economy, don't have a garage sale or yard sale. It makes no sense to spend an entire day collecting nickels and dimes. Set a two hour window and give the stuff away. Or advertise it on Nextdoor or Craigslist and sell it cheaply or give it away.
  • Understand that stealing (of the non-governmental type) has escalated dramatically. Do not have packages delivered to your home, unless you are "always" there during normal delivery times. UPS has a free program that allows you to have your package signed for and held for you at many locations, such as CVS and grocery stores. Sign up for that. Check FedEx, they may have the same thing. For USPS, sign up for their "signature required" program.
  • Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden have both said they are "in a fight for the soul of this country". That is true to the extent that a vampire does the same thing in regard to an individual. Unfortunately, our screwball "winner takes all" system of elections means that if you really feel threatened by these ghouls and the socialist party, your only rational choice is to support their Republican opponents.
  • Help stop the spread of the virus by strongly encouraging other people to take the vaccine, by which I mean shop in the produce department. Aside from people with compromised immune systems due to a condition such as old age, organ transplant, or cancer, the ONLY people dying from this are people with metabolic syndrome or those jammed into people warehouses such as prisons and nursing homes (pretty much the same kind of facility). Metabolic syndrome is also the cause of obesity, 95% of osteoporosis cases, 100% of Type II diabetes cases, 100% of insulin sensitivity cases, most gingivitis, most cases of bowel cancer, most cases of pancreatic cancer, and many cases of arm pit odor and halitosis. Why people would choose these well-known outcomes with each bite of food they put in their mouths, I have no idea. But you can help provide them with motivation and encouragement to do better.

Above all, don't let the panic be the real epidemic at least as far as your own life is concerned. Remember, there are evil forces at work. How do we know this?

  • When President Trump was first alerted about a possible pandemic, he asked the World Health Organization about it. They told him it was a hoax. So that's what he announced to the public.
  • Anthony Fauci, always an alarmist and a bit paranoid, was not satisfied with what WHO said. He looked into it. He told the President it's not a hoax.
  • In response to Fauci's well-constructed arguments, Trump shut down flights from China. Then there was an outbreak in Europe and despite WHO's position "nothing to worry about", Trump shut down flights from Europe.
  • Nancy Pelosi said the President was over-reacting. She and Chuck Schumer repeatedly announced it was a hoax.
  • Trump withdrew from WHO, turned his attention to our own CDC, and profusely thanked Fauci for his dogged persistence.

The socialists, never ones to let a crisis go to waste, have been milking this situation for every political advantage they can get. Ordering sick people into nursing homes to cause a massive kill-off and subsequently elevate fear, was one trick they pulled. They have relentlessly ridiculed and undermined the President at every step. In mid-October, they began criticizing him for having every state determine its own policy (while also providing CDC technical support). They said, "New Zealand has a national policy and eliminated Covid. The President failed to develop a national policy so he should not be re-elected." New Zealand is a tiny country with about 4.7 million people. The United States has 4 times zones in the mainland alone (more in Alaska and Hawaii), about 320 million people, hundreds of ethnicities, hundreds of varying local conditions, varying population densities, etc. With 50 states providing similar, but different, policies, it's also been possible to see what really works and what is just not worth doing.

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle

See my climbing videos here:
A reader wrote for advice:

"What can I do to tone my mid-section? I recently hit 40, and could stand to lose 20 pounds. I don't want to go to the gym or eat protein shakes, I'm too old for that and have too much going on. I bought an ab roller, and it doesn't seem to change anything."

This reader brought up several misconceptions.

  1. The idea of "tone" has no basis in physiology. Muscles either grow or they atrophy. And the body wants to be proportional, so for a strong midsection you need to work everything.
  2. People often say they "need to lose 20 pounds" when in fact they have gained 40 or more pounds of fat (and lost considerable muscle and bone mass). Tip: Eliminate all ultra-processed food, wheat, corn, and soy from your diet. You will see your body fat level decrease dramatically.
  3. You don't have to go to a gym to train. It's one option of many. Consider some dumbbells and bands for at home.
  4. A healthy diet that promotes a lean, strong physique isn't a matter of consuming protein shakes. It's a matter of consuming nutrient-dense, calories-sparse foods like vegetables instead of nutrient-poor, calorie-intense foods like wheat or corn.
  5. Age isn't a reason to let your health slide. I'm half again his age and don't miss workouts. Nor is being busy. I also have a lot going on.
  6. There is no exercise equipment that will solve your fitness problems. These things get pitched as if all you have to do is buy one and use it once a week. You need whatever equipment is necessary for you to challenge each body part such that you stimulate the adaptive response.

I've said many times that if you could do only one workout, make it legs. I do not mean by that you should work only legs. I mean by that this is your most important workout to get right and to really push hard in training. To get good results, you must train at least four days a week and challenge a different muscle group in each session. That muscle group rests until its turn comes up again. Training for six days allows you to get a stronger adaptive response each time, because you've broken up your groups even more so there is more rest between sessions.

Fitness is a lifestyle and you need a program. You can't just use some gizmo or consume some supplement and expect good results.


At, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:
  • The best workouts are short and intense.
  • A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction than the typical American diet.

7. Factoid

Cindy Crawford has an IQ of 154. She has a degree in chemical engineering and practiced engineering before becoming a model. Sharon Stone also has an IQ of 154.  Steve Martin is a member of Mensa.

Donald Trump has a higher IQ than Cindy Crawford or Sharon Stone, thus qualifying him for Mensa.

Joe Biden's IQ is estimated to be 80, which would clinically classify him as retarded. He is so stupid, he was the only one on Team Obama to object to the Seal Team 6 mission that took out Osama Bin Laden. On top of that, he has advanced dementia. See: and
