Please forward this to others who might find it useful. If you have a social media acct (Facebook, etc.), please add our link:

Socialism isn't an ideology. It's a deadly pathology. It infects unthinking individuals, then destroys their country.

1. Good News

Item 1. A study published in Nature Magazine found no transmission of Covid from those who tested positive but were asymptomatic. Read the full story here: While it is a single study and it involved only 300 subjects, it does support the idea that the severe over-reaction to Covid is unwarranted. Does this mean no more mask and social distancing since we "know" something that contradicts the reason for these restrictions? No, that would be a rush to judgment. And the single best way to fight Covid remains having a lifestyle that doesn't promote metabolic syndrome. That is also true of adult onset diabetes and most forms of cancer.

Item 2. The socialist-run Facebook may soon eat humble pie after years of bullying and other despicable behavior (I call it Buttbook for a reason!). Read the full story here:

Item 3. Google, aka "the evil empire", has not been having a good time lately.  Since October, it has been the defendant in not one, but three, major antitrust suits. When tax-cheating, ethics-devoid, predator companies like this have their wings clipped (even a little), that is good news. Faceslap, aka, Facebook, which is also a tax-cheating, ethics-devoid predator company got sloppy with its active criminal misconduct in third quarter of 2020 and if there is any justice at all the fines will be heavy and Mark Zuckerberg will find himself in prison with his ill-gotten assets seized. That would also be good news.

Item 4. On Friday the 18th, the Pentagon announced it was ceasing the security briefings for the Biden transition team. That is good news, for sure.

One justification that seems obvious here is if these folks can't be trusted to run for office without committing massive fraud, how can they be trusted with national security? There is also the fact that they have been effusively dishonest with the American people for the past four years while being supportive of insurrection, violence, and other significant crimes. Then, of course, there is the fact that Hunter Biden poses a security risk if his father is in the White House.

The Democrats should have stuck with Bernie Sanders, who after all won their primary election. I guess Bernie was too principled and decent to condone "winning" by simply fabricating votes. Biden, of course, doesn't have any principles. Or if he does, he lacks the ability to speak in complete sentences to express them and they would of course be new to him considering his conduct during his nearly half a century in public "service".

Item 5. Pravda West (aka, New York Times) seems determined to alienate its readers. In its latest insult to intelligence, the paper is advocating eugenics. See the full story here:

The good news is that, as these deranged people continue to publish this kind of crap they will hasten the day when that publication ceases to exist. To me, that day cannot come soon enough. Let us hope this latest outrage triggers that.

Item 6. Comrade AOC recently stated Nancy "Nutcase" Pelosi isn't radical enough. Now remember, the radicalism of Pelosi and her fellow psychopaths caused a backlash against the Socialist Party in the November election. There were 4,000 seats being voted on. No incumbent Republican lost, and Republicans in general gained 66% more seats. That is an astoundingly sharp repudiation of Marxism.

If the SP is going to be MORE radical, only people with no grasp of reality will support them. Whether the coup against President Trump succeeds or not, the mid-term elections will be brutal on the SP even with their ability to swap votes from the candidate who actually got them to their candidate. And even with thousands of 100 year old people in county after county amazingly voting en masse for the socialists. This defeat could eject these parasites from the Democratic Party to make it once again a viable option for ethical voters. And that would be very good news.

3. Brainpower tip


As even a casual observer can see, the legacy media are operated by people who are delusional, dishonest, and determined. That makes them decidedly dangerous. And not just to society, but to individuals such as you and me. Exposing your mind to their propaganda and expecting to have a rational view of the world is like pouring sugar into your car's fuel tank and expecting the car to run smoothly.

Many people adopt a strategy of hearing, viewing, or reading multiple "news" sources and then somehow discerning the truth. They determine "truth" based on what? This is like trying to pick the next basketball superstar from a line-up of quadriplegic midgets.

There probably isn't a real "news" source that is even 95% unbiased and accurate. But to avoid being manipulated and thus incapable of reaching accurate conclusions, start by eliminating from consideration those sources that are at most 1% unbiased. That would include the New York Slimes, Slime Magazine, the Communist News Network, Bloomberg, the e-Communist (published in the Marxist UK, which has laws protecting violent criminals from their victims instead of the other way around), and anything else that smacks of Marxist advocacy or fails to connect to reality. And you can't trust what you read on Face Slap, because we have seen what an ethics-free person Mark Zuckerberg is.

You do yourself a huge favor by eliminating these parasites from your mental sphere of influence. That does not mean to eliminate publications unless they tell you what you want to hear. Nor does it mean to limit yourself to echo chambers. There is a big difference between doing either of those and eliminating publications that clearly violate the basic principles of journalism. And all of the legacy "news" sources do that egregiously. You protect yourself by ignoring them entirely. You help protect western civilization by pointing out the lies to other people and asking them if they think it's OK for these liars to try to abused and manipulated them. "Do you think it's OK for these irrational people to try to manipulate you this way?"

If the legacy media were held accountable per the same standards that ordinary citizens must meet (particularly laws against libel, slander, selling defective products, inciting insurrection, and hate speech), they would all be shut down within days and the nation's average effective IQ would rise by 50 points. Now that is a massive brainpower increase!

4. Finance tip

Many people perceive 2020 as a year when things suddenly changed and we had to shut down our economy to prevent Covid-19 from overwhelming our hospitals. Aside from the fact the shutdown in the USA was both unnecessary for the stated goal and counterproductive to life-saving (it killed more people than it saved), 2020 was not a year when things suddenly changed. It was a year in which they came to a head.

When Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election despite massive cheating by the Democrats who fielded a candidate who is about as repugnant as as person can be, the socialists and many other idiots insisted his win was illegitimate and so was his Presidency. It is especially hypocritical of the them to raise this particular objection, since their previous "hero" failed to meet the Constitutional requirements for being POTUS and occupied that office illegally for eight destructive years (we so-called "birthers" believe the mother is present when and where the baby is born). Trump, by contrast, is Constitutionally qualified. And despite an unrelenting and vicioust assault during his first term, he has thus far put in an excellent performance.

I point this out as a means of explaining the fact that the socialist threat is far from over. To protect what you have worked so hard for, and to ensure at least moderate financial security in your later years, you need to actively fight socialism and encourage others to do so.

Be alert for opportunities to be assertive. For example:

  • Somebody re-spews at you some propaganda they heard "on the news." In a calm tone, say something like this. "Not right now, but I want you to take some time to think about why what you just said is absurd. I don't need your answer, but I want you to think about it. Now, let's change the subject."
  • Your local city council is entertaining the idea of painting BLM on the side of City Hall. You contact each member of your Council by e-mail, pointing out various acts of BLM violence and the calls for defunding the police. Ask them if this is what they really want to promote.
  • A socialist is up for re-election. Donate to the campaign of the challenger.

A core tenet of socialism is that wealth is not created, it is merely shared or allocated. Socialists see economics as a zero sum game, where one person can gain only at the expense of the other. This belief naturally produces a theft orientation in socialists. We saw an example of this when Biden refused to campaign, counting instead on stealing the election. If you want to drive a socialist crazy(er), just have a strong work ethic and extol the virtues of being a person of achievement with high standards of excellence. Talk about work in a positive way, making sure to mention that doing something meaningful in life is rewarding to you and being paid for doing it is icing on the cake.

The socialist movement relies on brainwashing, lies, and propaganda to recruit and retain members, but your example and your speech will serve as potent antidotes to these poisons. And of course, that work ethic is how you stay gainfully employed and even open new opportunities for you to grow your wealth.

I like this approach, because you can't lose and because you don't engage the socialist in a pointless argument. You simply become the proof that what they believe is wrong. They don't have the possibility to do likewise; stealing when you could work is not socially respectable or morally defensible. Socialists resort to violence, which is why every socialist regime has enforced strict gun confiscation at the outset. The summer of 2020, socialists waged a violent war against our society. Instead of intimidating us into acquiescence, it motivated people to massively change the compositions of state legislators leaving those bodies decidedly less socialist than before the election. That is, among the 4,000 "up for election" positions, the Republicans gained an amazing 67%. An increase of that magnitude is what we call a "sea change".

And given a choice between a pair of socialists or the incumbent, Americans voted in record numbers to give the incumbent a second term. We may never know how few votes Comrades Biden and Harris actually got, but we do know the number is far smaller than what Trump got. Americans in general don't want socialism and all the pain that comes with it. The human suffering under socialist systems is legendary,  and I don't mean just the National Socialist Party of Germany (NAZI). That party is but one example of many.

While fighting socialism is paramount to protecting your wealth, there are many more reasons for you to stand up and be heard in defense of our republic. Giving in to these bullies will not bring us peace. It will bring us only misery. Let us stand together, because only together will we succeed.

5. Security tip

Interesting video about digital id for UN:

Do you see the security implications of this? Thus far, the USA is a sovereign nation. One goal of the coup was to make sure it's not. For sure, Americans overwhelmingly rejected socialism in the 2020 election, most remarkably in state legislatures (see the Factoid column for more about that).

But simply rejecting socialist control in elections is not enough. We must also reject their NGOs (non governmental organizations) such as Facebook (evil beyond belief) and the various legacy media propaganda organizations such as CNN, Time, the New York Times, Apple News, etc. These NGOs can't legally pass laws, but they still de facto rule millions of people through mind control, addictive behavior bait, and other manipulative behavior. We must assert ourselves as sentient beings or resign ourselves to being treated as mere chattel. These are mutually exclusive choices. With which one do you think you are more secure?

Pop quiz: Which highly addictive drug is responsible for more deaths in the USA than all pathogenic (bacterial and viral) causes combined?

Yes, it’s “that other white powder”.

An article bylined by Dr. Mercola quoted a statistic that four “foods” make up 63% of the American diet. What it means is 63% of the "food" bought in the USA is one of these four. It does not mean a particular person or people on average consume 63% of their diet in the form of these four. They are:

  1. Refined cane sugar (same as #1 and both are endocrine modifiers too).
  2. Refined wheat (a drug that creates dopamine response).
  3. Processed oils (e.g., canola, "vegetable oil", corn oil, etc.).
  4. Trans fats (these and processed oils produce free radicals, ergo cancer).

Like many people, I do not consume any of these “zero nutrition” poisons. These non-foods make up 85% of the diet "on average" and for a significant segment of the population it is 100%. The smart move it to make it 0%.

  • "Sugar is the deadliest drug in circulation today."
  • "If it's wheat, do not eat."
  • "Processed oil your health will spoil."
  • "Trans fats are for cancer study lab rats."

When there is so much poison consumed by so many people and so little nutrition in their diet, the idea that we need an injectable vaccine to stop Covid is ludicrous. If people simply stopped poisoning themselves, that would help. For example, if you boiled spinach until you destroyed nearly all of its nutritional value and then ate it you would not poison yourself. That would be a big step up from most of what most people eat in place of food.

But the reality is items you can eat fall into two categories:

  1. Nutritionally devoid (or nearly so) poisons.
  2. Food. It is high in nutrients and the toxicity, if it exists at all, is insignificant.

Let's say you want to run a foot race. Your life depends upon winning. You have a habit of wearing leg chains with a 50lb weight on each leg. Now someone comes along and tells you he can give you an injection that will allow you to run faster. Do you really need that injection? What if you simply removed the leg chains and the weights? That is how it is with an infectious disease and the food vs. poison question.

Had our nation been on a food diet instead of one where 63% of the "food" consists of four nutritionally devoid toxins, we would have had herd immunity at the outset and Covid-19 would have barely been noticed.

Even in nursing homes, guess what people eat? And we assume they are vulnerable because of their age? They need to get rid of those chains and weights! And younger people (anyone under 80) need to do that right now so you vastly reduce your risk of ending up in a nursing home.

I opened with a comment on society's deadliest drug. Many people don't understand this substance is a drug. It alters the body chemistry, it's highly addictive, and the brain receptors that it targets are subject to progressive overload from it. Any honest pharmacologist will tell you that, based on its properties and effects, sugar is a harmful drug. So will any endocrinologist. One hundred years ago, the top five causes of death were from pathogens. Today, they are from sugar.

But you don't need expert medical opinions to understand sugar is a drug. Your own body tells you this multiple ways, one of which is a very strong inflammatory response. Your body sees this drug as a poison, thus triggering that response. Chronic inflammation from repeated sugar consumption destroys your mental and physical health. If this drug is in your house, move it to the wastebasket and don't allow more through your door.


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

Did Joe Biden receive the 81 million votes the legacy media insist he got? You decide:
  1. Hillary officially got 65 million votes (including dead people) in 2016, and Soetoro ("Obama") received 69 million in 2008.
  2. Biden came in a distant fourth in the primary and his running mate came in dead last.
  3. Biden was the first Democrat to lose the state of Ohio since 1960, yet he won the popular vote? Do we look stupid to these liars?
  4. Trump's 74 million votes are the most for a sitting president in U.S. history and 11 million more than he received in 2016. It was the third biggest increase of any incumbent president EVER. Obama won re-election in 2012 with 3.5 million FEWER votes than in 2008.
  5. Biden has 20.4 million Twitter followers compared to Trump's 88.7 million, yet we are supposed to accept the idea Biden got 81 million votes to Trump's 74 million?
  6. Trump rallies had massive crowds, Biden rallies often had only a dozen supporters show up.
  7. Biden was the only one who was against the Seal Team 6 mission to take out Osama Bin Laden.
  8. Biden's dementia is so bad, he cannot complete a sentence on his own (dozens of video examples out there).
  9. His extreme socialist vision, repeated threats to shut down the economy again, repeated threats to use Executive Orders to negate our enumerated rights in the Bill of Rights, and other crazy ideas do not resonate with most voters. There simply are not 40 million voters who are that stupid, much less 81 million.
  10. Not a single GOP incumbent lost re-election, yet we are supposed to believe a demented socialist with a frightening platform somehow beat a the GOP incumbent who has an excellent performance record.
  11. In state legislatures, the number of GOP seats increased 67%. This clearly represents a widespread rejection of radical socialist philosophy such as that promoted by Harris and Biden. Why would these same voters select a pair of radical socialists over a GOP president whose policies brought us the lowest unemployment rate in over 50 years?

Common sense thus tells us he did not get 81 million votes. And several reputable statisticians have provided the mathematical proof that it's just not possible.

This set of facts means there was a criminal conspiracy that attempted to violate the civil rights of the at least 74 million citizens who want Trump to serve another four years (if you add in the Trump votes that were flipped to Biden, the number is no doubt much higher).

The voices of 74 million to 90 million disenfranchised citizens need to be heard. Speak up now, while you still can!

8. Thought for the Day

If socialists can negate your right to vote, what other civil liberties will they negate? Will you defend the rights that The Greatest Generation passed on to us?
