1. Good News
- Since President Harris took office, people have been joining the USA's
oldest civil rights organization (the National Rifle Association) at the
rate of 1,000 per day.
- Several of the free states have initiated sanctions against Big-Tech for
their aggressive behavior in undermining/negating the First Amendment.
Please note, they have also attacked the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th,
and 10 Amendments aggressively. That is, all but the 3rd Amendment.
- Because the 2020 Presidential race was obviously stolen and because the
consequences of having two radical socialists occupy the White House
combined with a radically socialist House Speaker combined with a neutered
Supreme Court and a Senate with a radically socialist majority have already
been severe, some serious people are working at correcting the fraud and
getting Trump back into the White House where he lawfully belongs. While
they probably will not succeed, the very effort sends a message to our
- Pennsylvania recently agreed to take the names of dead people off of its
voter rolls. Read the full story here:
How can such a "racist" move be good news? For those of us who don't
"identify as dead", it means the socialists can't just add a dead
person's vote to offset that of a living voter. It makes elections a bit
more honest. This concept of a more honest election has the libtards in a
froth. Their fake news media (CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, etc.) have lied
like crazy about election reform in Georgia (the Washington Examiner has
excellent, factual coverage of this).
- The Retard in Chief has called the "need" for gun owner control measures
a "public health crisis." Very, very few people believe anything this
dirtbag has to say, which means the more he pushes this idea the more people
will conclude that gun owner control is bad public policy. Notice that when
the socialists refer to this violation of civil liberties they leave out the
word "owner". That omission also sends a message of untrustworthiness.
- Among those who value the Rule of Law (the only alternative to it is
tyranny), there is widespread fear that the socialist take-over is
permanent. After all, they managed to severely corrupt the 2020 Presidential
election so how can any election matter? The socialists have answered that
question by putting forth a bill (HR1) that further corrupts elections. It
costs a lot of money to buy off dozens of judges, hundreds of regulators,
and thousands of other people so that a travesty like the Biden "win" can be
fabricated. HR1 is not likely to pass. Even some Democrats are objecting to
it. Despite the spin, it is clearly aimed at making elections moot.
The bill is also unconstitutional, because it federalizes a power expressly
given to the states. Unconstitutionality is an impediment, but not
necessarily a barrier. Still, in this case it is a big impediment to an
already contentious proposition. For one thing, it is a direct threat to the
free states. They outnumber the socialist states, and they are not going to
take this power grab as legitimate. Even if HR1 passes, the free states will
likely ignore it.
Which brings us to 2022. It's a "first-term" election, that is, an election
held during the first term of the POTUS. In all cases but four, the election
has cost the POTUS both chambers of Congress--usually by a big margin. In
those four, the POTUS was a Republican and kept only one chamber. The party
that's in the White House tends to take big losses during the mid-term
elections (whether during the POTUS first or second term). In the current
situation, the line-up is such that the socialists are particularly
Keep in mind also that the track record of the socialists--rampant
unemployment, high gasoline prices, massive pushes for greater poverty,
wealth transfers to the rich, needless wars, violence in our cities, racial
animosity, rudeness, arrogance, hostility toward dissenters, fanatical zeal
for their ideology, dishonorable conduct, disdain for ethics,
double-speaking, rampant criminal conduct, and a complete intolerance of
diversity-- are all distasteful to ordinary people. As President Biden and
her sock puppet retard continue to push this agenda, they will further
alienate not just Republicans, Libertarians, and Independents, but millions
of Democrats. After all, Kamala Harris was dead last in the Democratic
Primary. The top three winners, all way ahead of Joe "Brainless" Biden in
that same Primary, have been totally left out of the new regime; they have a
strong incentive to work against the current regime. Also note the fact that
they are human beings should be ample reason for them to work against the
current regime, but it appears they need this additional incentive.
Yes, it is going to be a painful year and eight months for us normals. But not nearly as
painful as the socialists would like it to be. They don't have total freedom
to do whatever they want, there is enormous friction in the system. In less
than two years, they will lose control of both chambers while also
taking a severe beating in the states (especially as the free states seek to
expel the toxin). Harris, rather than ruling for 12 years, will be a lame
duck President. She will be highly vulnerable in 2024. If the Republicans
decide to run someone acceptable, the White House is theirs for the taking.
In 2026, that POTUS is likely to lose one chamber of the legislature, but
not by much.
Just as Trump successfully fixed the damage done by Barry Soetoro's flurry
of last-90-day executive orders in his first 90 days and set us on a path to economic
prosperity marked by a 50 year low in unemployment, the successor to Comrade
Harris is likely to do something similar.
In the meantime, don't worry. Act. Don't let yourself be cancel-cultured,
point out to the cancellers how dishonorable and anti-diversity that is.
Don't support anti-American companies like Facebook or the New York Times.
Contact your county election board and ask how you can contribute. Talk with
people about their values and our freedoms, help them connect the dots. Be
fully engaged at your job so you get raises and promotions, enabling you to
contribute financially to the cause of freedom.

3. Brainpower tip
I have heard many normal people express their angst over the Stupiderati. They
wonder how the stupidity movement can make such bold strides, when all of the
Stupiderati they encounter appear to be unbelievably stupid.|
How, they wonder,
does someone become brain-enfeebled enough to believe in "woke", critical race
theory, or the other craziness now being spewed by millions of unbelievably
stupid people? How can enough stupid people be in one place to actually elect
Nancy Pelosi? Repeatedly?
You can find the answer to this by using a reasoning method called deduction.
The Stupiderati are obviously too stupid to run their own show, so some other
faction is running it for them. The people running that show are not
unbelievably stupid, they are unbelievably evil.
I do not use the word "evil" hyperbolically. Nor do I cast aspersions on
people just because I disagree with them. I judge them on their conduct. What we
have seen from the Stupiderati over the past few years and intensely so of late
is hatred, intolerance, and destruction. All of which are, by any standard,
Why do people go down this path? Why do they not simply think their way into
You have no doubt noticed that the Stupiderati, unable to use facts (which
they ignore) and logic (which they cannot grasp), use bullying to get people
to (at least pretend to) agree with them. That is because the ones who come up
with all the stupid ideas that the Stupiderati spew use bullying. When a
viewpoint has no merit of its own, bullying others into accepting (or at least
not fighting) it is how those with the viewpoint in question show their loyalty
to the Stupiderati tribe. The word "tribe" is important, here. Most people are
approval-seeking beings. That is, rather than adopt standards for themselves and
judge themselves by those standards, they want others to approve of them even if
gaining that approval means behaving badly. Or turning off their cognitive
abilities. They don't "need to think", someone has already done that and told
them what to believe and how to (mis)behave.
You can see these same people easily enough in the workplace; they are
disengaged and concerned more about appearances than performance. They will hang
around the office late, even if they aren't doing anything productive. They like
to be in meetings, and they find ways to fritter away time. They don't come up
with much of value to the company.
No approval needed
If you have standards by which you live, you do not need the approval of
others. If you have standards by which you live, people who also live by
standards will recognize that and respect you even if your standards are
different from theirs (just not too different). Because your focus is on
performance rather than acceptance, you will have systems and methodologies that
you have thought out. Since you aren't letting someone else do the thinking for
you, you are thinking for yourself and thus exercising "the brain muscle".
You have no need to bully others; you can articulate what you believe and
why, using facts and logic. If they don't accept your position, you are secure
enough to either blow that off or genuinely seek to understand theirs. Unless,
of course, their position is that anyone smart enough or principled enough not
to agree with their hatred, intolerance, and destruction is fair game for being
Standing up to stupidity
When faced with a Stupiderati attack, don't make an extra effort to get along
with the attacker. Getting along with you is not their goal, dominating you into
submission (and stupidity) is. Throughout human history, stupidity has never
advanced the human cause. Advancement has always come as a result of applying
intelligence, even if some other people did not like it or felt threatened by
We are currently in a time when stupidity is at high tide. The good news is
it's not sustainable at this level. Already, the stupidity movement is hitting
walls here and there. Appointing a mentally retarded man as POTUS did not help
the stupidity movement, that action exposed it. Many people who felt they needed
the approval of moronic bullies are now questioning that.
To save someone from stupidity, don't argue with the person. Give them
acceptance as human beings, but make that conditional on their good behavior.
It's not the stupid views they espouse that matter, it's acceptance. If they
feel accepted by people who aren't stupid, a door is open (rather wide) for them
to abandon the stupidity movement.
Another way you can help fight stupidity is to recognize non-stupid behavior
in others and compliment them for it. Even people who do not seek approval like
receiving it. Try to notice smart things other people do. Not only will you
learn from them, but the recognition you give them will spread some happiness
4. Finance tip
I was the victim of a 17 year long attack on my human rights and civil
liberties, by a terrorist group known as "the IRS." A few years before this
ordeal ended (which it did several years ago), an attorney who had reviewed my
case and others like mine told me these terrorists spent over $3 million on
their jihad against me. Just me! I guess they thought I was really special!|
Recently, I calculated the income I lost because of their dozens of aggressive
actions against me. Then I calculated the 1040 taxes I would have paid on that
income. It turns out the terrorists deprived the federal government of just
under $600,000 of revenue from me. And they spent over $3 million achieving
that. So it was a total loss to the government of about $3.6 million. This math
is one reason why I say IRS has no business being involved in anything that has
anything to do with tax administration or collection. And since the IRS mission
has nothing to do with funding the government, why don't they just drop the
During the nearly two decades they illegally attacked me, the terrorists used
the fake excuse that I "owed" additional taxes. But they never provided any
proof of this, nor could they.
If you want to help protect the US Treasury from the IRS, and reduce your
chances of undergoing a hot sauce enema, here are some tips:
- Never provide the IRS with any documentation they request. Their only
purpose will be to find some way to use it against you. Provide only your
completed tax return when you file it. If IRS asks you to send a return that
you already filed, they are violating a federal law that bars them from
asking you for information they already have.
- Never cheat on your 1040, never discard a 1040 from your records, and
never submit your 1040 electronically.
- Never go with a "gray area" because you thought of a good verbal
defense. IRS will not care what you say. If you go with a gray area, ensure
you have documentation supporting it and that in your case it is clearly not
- Make all filings and payments to the IRS via paper. That slows them
down. It's your patriotic duty to do it this way.
- Always send your 1040 via US Priority Mail with signature required or a
similar method that provides proof of delivery. This way, IRS cannot come
back at you 15 years later claiming that you did not file; that claim could
easily cost you over $100K in taxes, interest, and penalties.
- If IRS contacts you by telephone, immediately hang up. Never talk to
them. If they do contact you, hire a tax attorney within an hour of hanging
up. File a POA with the attorney. Do not use a tax attorney from Chicago,
they are all crooks.
- If IRS comes to your house, do not let them inside. Even if it's cold or
raining. Especially if it's cold or raining! Tell them you will have your
attorney contact them and you are not answering any questions. If they will
not leave, shut the door on them and dial 911 to report a home intrusion
attempt in progress and say you are trapped in your home (then hang up).
- Never provide the IRS with any banking account number if you use that
account for anything other than making payments to government entities. That
is, have a separate checking acct for govt payments and deposits. If you
don't understand why, stop and think. IRS can wipe out your checking acct
without notice, and keep hitting it to trigger dozens of overdrafts in a
day. You will have all of your other checks and payments bounce, it's a
great way to become homeless and then lose your job. There are plenty of
free checking options available. If you have already compromised your
checking this way due to having only one checking acct, no problem. Open a
new personal checking acct at another bank from the one you use now; use it
for everything but govt payments.
- Always remember, the IRS person who contacts you is not your friend.
They are like the pervert in the van who offers candy to little kids. They
might seem nice, but there is a special place in hell for them.
The less interaction you have with these terrorists, the more secure your
financial future will be. Volunteer nothing to them, and don't try to win their
With much input from me, Congress in 2017 passed landmark legislation that
greatly removes IRS involvement in people's lives. The socialists hate this
legislation and have lied about it incessantly, because they hate anything and
anybody that promotes a better society. If your Congressional representative is
negative about the 2017 Civil Rights Act, aka the 2017 Tax Reform Act, you need
to help get that person out of office.

my climbing videos here:
Some years ago, another man tried to diminish me by saying, "You exercise to
get the runner's high." I told him that's not at all why I train, and let it
go at that. I did not feel any need to justify myself or my lifestyle to
If you're not aware, the runner's high is caused by endorphin
release. Endorphins are natural pain killers that also provide a bit of a
euphoric feeling. I've also been told I'm "addicted" to training because why
else would I never miss a workout. This also is incorrect. And it's very
My workouts do not make me feel good. They do not give me a high. They
exhaust me. I design and execute them to do exactly that, because pushing
yourself to the limits is what triggers the adaptive response. Addiction is
nearly always dopamine-related. You do something that is pleasurable, and it
releases dopamine or you use a drug and it binds to the dopamine receptors.
It certainly is not pleasurable to feel those quads burn on the last four
reps of set four of leg extensions. It's not pleasurable to painfully
contract your lats hard to get the last two reps of a narrow grip pulldown
after you have already done four sets of wide grip pulldowns (which you did
after six sets of chinups). And squats? Not done for pleasure!
So if I'm not seeking dopamine and not even sensing those endorphins, why
do I train? Is any brain chemical involved?
Why yes, there is a brain chemical involved. It's not dopamine, the
pleasure hormone. It's serotonin, the happiness hormone.
A long time ago, I decided to focus on the long game. It's been a journey
of constant self-improvement. That journey is a happy one. Foregoing
short-term pleasure for long-term happiness is a trade that many people do
not want to make. Consequently, their lives are based on chasing the
increasingly elusive dopamine hit while dealing with misery-inducing
problems they could have avoided had they only made different choices
early and along the way.
While any one session of weight lifting, martial arts training, or
climbing can seem like a foray into masochism, the cumulative effects of
that training truly boost my happiness. When I was younger, the happiness
trigger was the image I had of being physically powerful and looking that
way when I am old. Well, now I am officially old. I am physically powerful
and look that way. It's no longer the image of the future me that boosts my
serotonin. What boosts it now is being me. For example, my training allows
me to do this:
Training consistently brings
benefits that you can't get any other way. I am now enjoying those benefits
at an age that is normally marked by significant physical decline. I am also happy to look forward to a walker-free lifestyle fifteen
years from now.
The potbelly and pancake butt (accompanied by general atrophy that is
quite significant) that men of my parents' generation typically had before reaching my age are not inevitable. I'm not the only one who
has proven this. You probably know several exceptions to this rule. And you
will not find a couch potato among them.
What about the person who
doesn't have a laid-out training program and doesn't even do weightlifting?
Is that person isn't going to be in the group just mentioned? Suppose she
often lies down exhausted from a day of strenuous activity (planted garden
yesterday, hiked the hills the day before, painted four rooms by hand
today). She's much closer to the end of the spectrum where I reside and
perhaps for her that is good enough. The key is to stimulate the adaptive
response regularly, even though doing so may not be particularly pleasant.
The happiness from doing this is worth the little short-term sacrifices you
I have a friend who doesn't lift weights. He's about my age, but strong
as an ox. He's a field service engineer, a job that is sometimes very
demanding physically. He also enjoys the great outdoors and is no stranger
to hard work tending the acreage he and his wife live on. Another friend
just turned 78. I think he looks good for 60! He doesn't lift weights. But
it seems like he is always doing something physical. Both of these guys find
themselves bone-weary from hard work, and they love it.
Forget about chasing after dopamine. Get your serotonin on, by having an
active, full life and consistently working toward long-term goals.
www.supplecity.com, 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.
The Covid "vaccines" are not vaccines, legally or medically. They have not
passed the animal and human trials to legally qualify. Medically, the definition
is a bit complicated but they don't meet the standard there either. Should you
allow yourself to be injected with any of these non-vaccines? Doing so won't
protect you from Covid, and it is risky. But you may have job pressure or other
pressure to do so. Just keep the facts in mind when mulling over the decision.|
8. Thought for the Day
When libtards talk about "diversity" they mean in terms of
characteristics that have no meaning (such as skin color or ethnic origin). Real
diversity (for example, differing viewpoints) is something they aggressively
respond to with extreme hostility. Conformity makes them comfortable, diversity
sends them into a manic state.
