Socialists talk about equality. What they do is make everyone (other than the elite) equally poor and equally miserable. We are already seeing the effects in the USA. Fight back!

1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

  1. On 07SEP, the Governor of Texas signed into law an election reform bill that closes fraud loopholes while making it easier for people to cast their vote. Some people ask what difference this makes, because Texas is a free state so it doesn't have the problem of being taken over by voting fraud. First, every free state should do this to help itself remain a free state. Second, it sets an example and gets the ball rolling. Now other states can follow an example, and they will. Trump won the 2020 election by 78 Electoral College votes, but due to massive fraud we have a brainless, America-hating pedophile as POTUS instead. Even now, if just three specific states corrected their election results then any state could sue and the SCOTUS would be bound by law and ethics to declare the actual winner. So it's very important.
  2. His Holiness The Fauci may be in serious trouble. Read about it here:
  3. About 80% of Americans disapprove of the Deep State and the intensity of the disapproval is "ratcheting up". Read the full story here:
  4. This is a touching story:

3. Brainpower tip


In our previous issue, I covered the "asking basic questions" technique that is part of the critical thinking toolset. I used as an example the "election" of Brainless Biden. Using this technique, a critical thinker can conclusively prove Biden did not win that election except when you count illegitimate votes that resulted from egregious cheating. The article got much appreciated positive feedback from readers, so I decided to use another example.

In a previous issue, I used a single question to prove Barrack Hussein Obama was not born in Hawaii (where is there any evidence his mother, a minor at the time, was there during his birth?). That non-issue was resolved years ago, so as much as I enjoy demolishing the lie that Barry is a US citizen I will refrain here.

In this issue, I will address the deception surrounding Covid-19.


Someone close to me asked, "If the virus is so contagious that we have to stand 6 feet apart, why do they have to stick a long swab way up your nose to test you to see if you have the virus?" Good question. Why not just swab the aerosol each person emits? Or swab their face mask? If they have to go up your nose, why does a mask have to cover your mouth? You can continue ad infinitum riffing off the long swab nonsense.

To this I add, "If the virus is so deadly, why do you have to be tested to see if you even have it?"


Now, let's examine the efficacy of masks. His eminence The Fauci at first said not to wear masks. Then he said to wear them. These are mutually exclusive commands from our deity. He resolved the conflict by telling us to wear TWO masks.

Which of these three holy dispensations is correct? To answer that, ask what happens when you wear a mask. Remember, any mask you wear (even N95) is no barrier at all to the virus. Masks are alleged to slow transmission by blocking the larger particles of saliva aerosol, even though research shows the virus is almost exclusively in the small particles.

Here are some answers:

  • About 90% of mask-wearing people engage in mouth-breathing when "at idle" and 100% do so when under exertion. This means incoming and outgoing air is bypassing the sticky tunnel that is your hose and nasal system. That tunnel has electrostatically charged hairs at its opening (you should never pluck these, and avoid over-trimming them because they serve a vital function in disease prevention). There is a reason you blow your nose rather than blow your mouth. The mouth does not filter and collect dust, pollen, or viruses; that is the job of the nasal system.
  • People wearing a mask speak more loudly, thus eject more aerosol.
  • People wearing a mask produce aerosol with significantly more force. It goes right through the mask.
  • In an effort to be understood, mask wearers not only crank up the volume (of air, and thus sound), they also look directly at you and thus aim their aerosol at you. A person without a mask can speak softly and look off to the side to keep you completely out of their aerosol from even a couple of feet away. The mask wearer will project an aerosol straight at you and a distance that is much more than 6 feet.

So what's your conclusion? Does wearing a mask reduce the transmission of Covid or increase it? There is only one correct answer.

Social distance

Stay six feet away. Why? Because of the aerosol. So what happens when I move forward in a store checkout line, and then stand right in another person's aerosol?

  • How much aerosol is in a given public area, and how long does it last?
  • Where does it go? Do the droplets fall to the ground or waft away on the breeze?
  • If the former, then what happens when I stir them up again by walking (we all drag air behind us, you can test this by farting and immediately walking 10 feet away--it will follow you)?
  • If the latter, how full of these does the air get?

Hand sanitizers

What about hand sanitizers? These alcohol-based solvents strip the protective oil from your skin and reduce the population of the bacteria that normally live there. The human body is made mostly of bacteria, we are symbiotic with them. Kill off the good ones, and what happens? Here are some other questions to ask:

  • We know ordinary soap and water will break apart a Covid virus, destroying it. So why should I use a harsh chemical that damages my body's first line of defense against infection?
  • The test for Covid involves sticking a long swab way the heck up your nose. If dousing our hands with a harsh chemical removes the virus, then why don't they just swab our hands?
  • If the virus is so infectious, would our hands remain "clean" for more than a second or two? What stops the virus from traveling down an infected person's arm to "refill" the hand?
  • What about people who adjust their mask? Do their hands not become "dirty" with the virus again?

Other measures

I don't want to provide an exhaustive list of all the crazy stuff the socialists insist we do "to beat Covid". It's clear that what they recommend actually helps Covid to be transmitted. Not one "protective measure" given by the CDC or Fauci is based on science. If you ask for the data to support that claim, they never can produce it. So when someone tries to enforce some idiotic rule and tells you, "It's from the science," ask them where they saw the data and how you can do that also. Then ask a question that is indisputably logical.

The reported death rates

Q: Are the reported Covid death rates "death from Covid" or "death with Covid?"

A: We had a sharp decrease in deaths from other causes, as if those diseases were suddenly cured. But if we correct for those rates statistically, then the number of Covid deaths is only slightly more than the expected number of seasonal flu deaths.

It's also worth noting that the Covid tests are badly skewed toward false positives. This helps explain why (this is the actual figure) 80% of Covid victims are asymptomatic. It may the case that 80% of reported Covid victims do not have Covid.


Thanks to the "vaxxed" socialists who fled TX for DC and consequently unleashed a massive Covid infection, we know these "vaccines" do nothing to reduce transmission. We also know that large numbers of people die from them. So let's ask some questions:

  • If my chances of surviving Covid are effectively 100%, why should I submit to a genetic alteration that has a much lower survival rate?
  • Advocates tell me to "get the vaccine for the sake of others". How would my doing this help others in any way, since it has no effect no transmission? How would my death help others? Am I really such a bad person that my death is considered helpful to others?
  • For thousands of years, the human immune system has relied on a nutrient-dense diet for it to work properly. In fact, people on such a diet simply do not get sick. This essentially makes a nutrient-dense diet a vaccine, except it is giving you natural immunity rather than chemically-induced immunity. Why have the "health experts" been silent about this?
  • Data collected last year showed, according to a CDC report, the only "non-vulnerable" (not in a nursing home or ICU and not on immunosuppresants) people dying from Covid were people with metabolic syndrome. There is only one way to get metabolic syndrome, and that is to have a diet based on highly processed foods. Solution? Don't eat highly processed foods.

Now, a variation on this method in addressing "vaccines". What if you ask a question and find the answer rather than ask a question and supply the answer?

  • In the case of the "vaccines", the most obvious question to ask is, "How effective are they?" Answer: The New England Journal of Medicine is arguably the most respected and prestigious medical journal in the world. And according to them, the Covid-19 "vaccines" are only 65% effective. Look it up for yourself:; click on the About sections.
  • In the case of the "vaccines", the next most obvious question to ask is, "How safe are they?" You can find the answer at, and it turns out that for young, healthy people with zero risk of dying from Covid-19, 20, or 21, Delta, etc., the "vaccines" are very, very dangerous. As in a lot of young healthy people die from it.

Notice the sources are not "conspiracy" sites or "disinformation" organizations. The socialists and their libtarded robots constantly assert their incorrect views are "from the science". We have just shown that is not even remotely the case.

Now we ask another question. "Is the 'vaccine" risk acceptable in terms of getting Covid under control?" First of all, the question assumes Covid is not under control. That is incorrect. Second, it assumes these experimental therapies are the only way to fight this particular flu. That is not only incorrect, it's downright stupid. See the next section.

Curing Covid

So how do we cure Covid? Currently, people are told to stay at home and suffer through it until they develop a full-blown cytokine storm and then come in for treatment that won't work because it's too late. But Covid is a flu. So we must ask, "What did Grandma do about the flu?"

  1. Get extra vitamin C.
  2. Eat plenty of chicken soup.
  3. Get extra sleep.
  4. Clear your sinus passages with a nasal rinse.
  5. If your throat hurts, suck on a zinc lozenge.

To that, we can add:

  1. Take extra D3, at least 6X the RDA.
  2. Take an anti-inflammatory, such as curcumin.
  3. Do not wear a mask. Doing so lowers your immunity (see above).
  4. If you experience respiratory difficulty, get medical attention right away. The solution may be something as simple as a Prednisone shot. Of course, this option is almost totally blocked under Fauci-ism.

Your superpower

Make critical thinking your superpower by asking relevant questions that get at the crux of the matter. Notice how quickly we arrived at the cure for Covid.

When you see a scam of this magnitude, cognitive dissonance can cause thinking to shut down. So does fear, which we got due to vastly inflated death counts and misattribution of the cause of death.

Consequently, absurdities are accepted as if they are true. When the language is weaponized with lies like "from the science" you then are portrayed as either a believer in the absurd or an irrational person. But those are the same thing. It's a false choice. People who use this bullying tactic are not open to science, they just want to be validated as "a good person" who follows the rules. If you don't give them that validation, you can expect to be despised.

You must will yourself to stop and reflect on things. Look behind the proverbial curtain, ask questions that are uncomfortable to answer. Don't let people get away with hijacking your mind or stealing your right to form honest conclusions from actual facts.

This doesn't mean you have to be an idea warrior, getting into arguments with people whose ideas are based on the emotional need for approval rather than on rational analysis. It does mean you do not have to be bullied or bamboozled into accepting something as "true" on its face.

Use your superpower.

4. Finance tip

Sometimes I have to go to the grocery store aisle where they have soaps, detergents, and various other cleaning solutions and supplies. I never buy any of those supplies (I purchase the "safe to use" versions at another store), but there are sometimes other items I do buy that get stuck on that aisle. The smell is overpowering and those harsh chemicals and "fragrances" make my nose run. I don't know why anybody would take this stuff back to where they eat and sleep, but then ants do the same thing with ant poison.

Obviously, people do take this stuff back to where they eat and sleep, or the stores would not stock their shelves with it. Not only are they damaging their health, they are wasting considerable money. You can buy an entire gallon of household white vinegar (5% vinegar) for less than a single small bottle of the toxic stuff. Vinegar won't leave a petrochemical residue on your surfaces and it won't leave chemical fumes in the air you breathe.

  • Unless you have granite countertops, keep a spray bottle of vinegar in your kitchen. Keep another in each shower or tub area, half bath, and laundry room.
  • Vinegar makes short work of cleaning up pet messes on carpet. I even cleaned up blood from a freshly killed (by the cat who owns me) rabbit from carpet (used baking soda also).
  • Do you have a carpet wet-cleaning machine? Rather than use toxic, costly carpet shampoos in that machine, use a small amount of vinegar in the fill tank (use plain water to fill it up). If the carpet is very dirty or stained, first sprinkle baking soda on it; wait 15 minutes then go over it with your vinegarized cleaning machine  .
  • Turn off your toilet water supply valve, then flush. Now pour a cup or two of vinegar in the bowl. Let stand overnight. No more ugly build-up in the bowl.
  • Glass tumblers sparkle after being sprayed with vinegar, wiped dry with a cloth, then rinsed in water and wiped dry again.
  • Clean your car's windshield with it (be careful not to get it on the paint).
  • Before working in your kitchen, clean the work area surface with vinegar. Spray on, wipe off. This disinfects also, so you can stop thinking about the fact that the typical countertop has far more bacteria on it than the typical toilet seat. Yours isn't typical, it's been cleaned with vinegar!

In short, if a wet cleaner can be used then vinegar is nearly always the best wet cleaner to choose. You will save maybe 70% on your cleaning solution costs. But more importantly, you will avoid the medical costs arising from dousing your house with chemicals that are hostile to the human body.

Some other products that waste money:

  • Paper towels. Use them sparingly. Use rewashable cloth rags, instead.
  • Plastic eating utensils. Invest in a metal flatware/dinnerware set. It looks nicer than plastic, is safer to eat with, and its pieces are washable/resusable.
  • Paper napkins. These are fine for an informal party, such as a kid's birthday party. But for the dining table, use cloth napkins. They are classier, far less damaging on the environment, and washable.
  • Paper plates, cardboard serving bowls, etc. Invest in plates and bowls that are made from ceramic or glass. A set of these can last for decades, and food doesn't pick up a cardboard taste by being on them.

If you do want to buy soaps and detergents that are compatible with the human body but don't want to go into the lung abuse aisle to get them, try shopping at a "natural foods" store. These stores almost never have the asphyxiating petrochemical products, so you can walk in there without a custom-fit gas mask and buy them. For example, I don't use vinegar and baking soda to do my laundry; I use a 7th Generation liquid laundry detergent. I do put vinegar in the prewash and bleach trays if washing white clothes. And to periodically clean the drum, I toss in about a cup of baking soda and then fill the prewash, detergent, and bleach trays with vinegar.

5. Security tip

In cities where the politicians hate "black" people, the politicians have withdrawan a basic city service. They call it "defunding" the police. The results were predictable; violent crime against the residents (many of whom call themselves black) skyrocketed. Property crime went to crazy extremes, depriving hard-working "blacks" and other people of what they had worked so hard for. Adding to this is a general sense of being helpless because these same hateful politicians passed laws restricting gun ownership to only the politically connected and the violent criminals.

As in San Francisco, a city with practically no children but that has spawned Nutcase Pelosi. The Empress wants no police for ordinary citizens, but she has her own armed security paid for by the taxpayers.

Replace pro-crime politicians

Until there is election reform, we can't do anything about hateful, racist, liberty-stomping politicians. So to fix what's in your area or stopping such a thing from happening, support the election integrity drive. If you do a search online, you will have a hard time finding them due to the censorship. Wendy Rogers is leading the charge. You can start here: Also, encourage others to boycott the disinformation outlets called "mainstream media". These outlets are responsible for manipulating millions of people, suppressing the truth, and destroying people whose views differ from their own warped views.

Be a good driver

Cops hate traffic stops. People who get pulled over also hate traffic stops. Cops hate traffic stops because those stops are dangerous. So don't drive in a way that forces this person to do their job and pull you over. If you do get pulled over, greet the officer with your hands on the steering wheel (one already holding your license and registration) and an apology coming out of your mouth. "I'm sorry you had to stop me, officer. What is the reason?" Behave in a way that does not escalate the situation. The fact you have your license and registration in hand, or at least your license, shows you are already behaving respectfully.

I got pulled over once for an expired license plate. When the cop told me this, I thanked him for noticing that and then said I do remember mailing it in but I do not remember following up on it after not getting anything back. He said he understood and to just take care of the problem, but unfortunately he was going to have to write me a ticket for it. I was polite and deferential not because I had hoped he would not write me a ticket, but because I didn't want to add to the negative experiences of one police officer. If someone had creamed my car on that same stretch of road and he showed up, I would have been happy to see him. If you do something wrong, pretend in your mind the cop is protecting you by stopping some other bad driver. You're happy that someone is trying to make your roads safer. Then you'll have a positive attitude toward the officer. Many times in the past few years, I have encountered very dangerous drivers and wished a cop were there.

Support your local cops!

The police shortage is increasing due to many factors, but officer abuse by politicians and socialist groups is the big one. So share the love! When I see a police officer, I always thank that person. "Thanks for wearing that uniform. I appreciate you and what you do."

I was standing in line in a hardware store, when a uniformed cop entered and came over kind of my way. I loudly said, "Thank you for wearing that uniform, officer." A woman echoed, "Same here" and other people chimed in. Not one libtard stood up and said, "Defund the police!" I don't know if any libtards were in that store at the time, but if so they kept their toxicity to themselves.

Sometimes I phone the local police department. I am always greeted with the name of the officer. "Officer Smith here". I say, "Officer Smith, I just called to tell you I appreciate you and your fellow officers for all that you do. I also want you to know that people who appreciate our police officers are the majority." I get a thank you and then I close the call with some remark like, "That's all I had to say. You take care."

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle
See my climbing videos here:

Recently, a climbing buddy and I were discussing training while taking a few minutes to recover from a particularly gnarly climb. I said my ab workout was by far my shortest one. I do only four exercises. He said he stopped doing an ab day years ago. "You work them in everything. They take a beating often, so you instinctively limit that workout. And it's why I don't do one at all."

I nodded respectfully. I would have to think about this.

He's both right and wrong when he says "you work them in everything". It depends on how you train. If you do big compound movements like squats or (done correctly) bench presses, your abs get a significant workout. What if you do isolation exercises? To have correct form and truly isolate, you must lock your torso and prevent it from being recruited into the exercise. When you see people swing their hips as they do biceps curls, you see people who are letting their core go slack so that their isolation exercise is morphed into a suboptimal compound exercise that fails to stimulate the adaptive response.

I  have three upper body workouts (back/biceps, chest/triceps, shoulders) that I spread across 4 training days (the sequence starts over again on the 4th day); Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday. Monday is for legs, and I alternate each week  between upper legs and lower legs. I paid attention to the amount of ab work done in each of these. While it varies, it is in all cases significant.

Then of course, there's the climbing. And it is often brutal on the abs. On top of this, I do some martial arts training; that also works the abs (and the rest of the core).

So should I do like my buddy and eliminate that ab workout? Here is the analysis. I have plenty of ab power for each of these workouts though when I'm near the end it's pretty well exhausted. Same for climbing. When I do the ab training, it feels challenging but doable. For me, it make sense to continue to have a workout devoted to abs. Note that I also work the opposing muscle group, which is my lower back. My chiropractor loves this, and says if I want to continue being free of lower back pain to keep working those muscles. A weak back is one that will hurt.

  1. I start by doing vacuums. This part isn't putting much strain on the abs, but it is good for posture and appearance.
  2. Next, I do set after set of hanging leg raises. I do as many reps as I can with legs straight. I do as many sets as I can until I feel like I've about run out of gas. Breaks between sets are short. At the end of each set, I extend back the other direction, so that I don't get a back twinge.
  3. I end by doing Roman chair work. First a set of crunches, followed immediately by a set of reverse crunches. That is, after raising my torso face up using my abs, I flip over and face down so I raise it using my lower back muscles. In each set, I do as many reps as I can do in good form. This means I do about 20 to 25% more reverse crunches than regular ones.
  4. I end by doing vacuums.

As you can see, this doesn't take long. With my back all limbered up, it's a good time for me to do some legs akimbo stretching. I can still do the splits, but I have to work my way into that position now over a series of stretches. So I will do these stretches until I am doing the splits or something reasonably close.

If ab work is right for me, should I run back to my climbing buddy and tell him he needs to work abs? No. He made his decision based on feedback from his body. His training and other activities are not the same as mine, so the fact that I can use a specific workout for abs is not at all relevant to whether he can.

It's always good to evaluate your training and think about whether you are underworking or overworking a specific muscle group. You should also use "lite" versions of your workouts when expecting physical exertion later that day or the next. For example, on climbing days I do one less set of each exercise and typically do fewer reps. I train pretty early in the morning, but climb in the afternoon. If I am planning to climb on my climbing wall in my back yard, then I don't adjust my training. Why? Because when I am spending four hours at a gym with a climbing buddy or group of same, it would be foolish for me to do that while exhausted. But if I am going to make only 3 or 4 climbs, being exhausted merely makes me focus more on form.

Sometimes, I get a lasting fatigue. This comes about because I've done extensive yard work or some other activity that has taxed my system. If I wake up feeling fatigued, I curtail that day's workout a bit and take extra glutamine. The reduced metabolic damage means less recovery to do, and the extra glutamine speeds up the recovery. I maintain this until the fatigue is gone.


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

Joe Biden's sole "accomplishment" during nearly 50 years of government "service" was his leading part in producing and passing a bill that reduces the rights of the accused.

8. Thought for the Day

If you don't take time for health, you will have to find time for illness. If you take time for health, you will not have to take time for illness.
