1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

  1. The CDC database shows that only 5% of reported deaths from Covid list Covid only. Think about this. It means Covid was merely a complicating factor or comorbidity in a person who was already ill--95% of the time!.

    The CDC reported a total of 724,317 deaths where people had Covid, which means the CDC shows 36,216 people died from Covid. But wait. The Covid test has a 75% false positive rate. That brings the total to 9,054 deaths from Covid--and 95% of those people were already sick with something else. That brings the total deaths from Covid (by itself) down to 452 people. Compare that to the 480,000 deaths annually from smoking or the 780,000 deaths per year from hospital errors. 

    Why are we even talking about Covid?

    There's more to consider. In The People's Republic of California, there were 3,723 motor vehicle deaths in 2020 alone. Yet in the whole country only 452 otherwise healthy people have died from Covid since this whole scam started.

    But aren't we being protected by a vaccine now so we don't see Covid kill another 452 otherwise healthy people? Not at all. The "vax" has already killed over 5,000 otherwise healthy people (see the numbers here: .

  2. Ann Coulter has a new book out. It's insightful and witty even for her. The book is "Resistance is Futile" and its subtitle is "How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind". This book can help sane people understand where we are and how we got here. The book concludes by stating a fact I realized back in 1981 and have mentioned many times in this very newsletter. We must kill the lamestream media. They lie incessantly and focus on the negative. They are a serious threat to the concept of The Rule of Law (the alternative being tyranny), our way of life, and civil society. Boycott newspapers, newsfeeds, television, and big tech media (e.g., Facebook), and strongly (very strongly) encourage others to do the same.
  3. Serious effects of the jab:
  4. There is hope for sanity even in communist countries such as The People's Republic of Illinois.

    Cook County, aka Crook County, which is the second most populous county in the USA (after LA County) and home to Chicago and the people-hating deranged person known as Laurie Lightfoot, legislated yet another criminal protection measure that would be especially helpful to criminals preying on the less affluent. Comrades in the peasantry sued and the case eventually wound up in the Illinois Supreme Court where this criminal protection measure was struck down. Read the full story here:
  5. There is also hope for a prairie grouse that was once on the verge of extinction. Read the full story here:
  6. The socialists were forced to remove their IRS snooping scheme from their "Destroy America" agenda. That's just one of many defeats they have racked up recently. After stealing the Presidential election through blatant and obvious fraud in 2020, they knew they would lose the House and Senate in 2022. So instead of picking a few things to inflict on the country, they unleashed many attacks at once. That was a strategic mistake. They have most likely alienated the electorate (other than socialism devotees) for the next dozen or so elections to come. They still own the "media" to push out their absurd lies, but the vast majority of people tune out the media now. Facebook is hemorrhaging users and its socialist CEO is personally in legal trouble.
  7. Significant numbers of libtards in the libtard region known as "the northeast" rely on fuel oil for heating. This winter, many of them will become Republicans if they don't freeze to death first. Fuel oil shortages will be severe, and the cost will be staggering.
  8. A District Court judge has put a temporary stop to Brainless Biden's "get vaxxed or get out" attack on federal workers. This is yet another defeat for the occupying forces who were, only last year, insurgents on the outside looking in. The question of "Is it time to see our 2A rights as a responsibility to repel the invaders and end the tyranny, lawlessness, and killing?" appears, thankfully, to be rendered moot. Simply winning a civil war is only the beginning. They also must govern, and for that job the ill-suited and unprepared. Lying and cheating can take you only so far, and they are hitting a brick wall at every turn.
  9. Many people have been asking whether the nation can last long enough for the new House and Senate to convene in 2023, and whether there will be elections in 2022 or just a repeat of the many rigged contests that occurred in 2020. The good news is we are probably not going to have to wait that long to stop the enemy. We are using a combination of civil disobedience and lawsuits to tie their hands. Of course, having a mentally retarded pedophile as their front man is not exactly playing with a strong hand.
  10. In the communist country of New York, 40% of businesses inspected for compliance with the illegal vax mandate are non-compliant. Smart people will boycott the other 60%.
  11. The retarded man who is illegally occupying the Oval Office continues to alienate American "voters". In the solidly communist New Jersey, where common sense was projected to never gain a foothold, only 43% of the people approve of his "performance". Even more telling, 49% say they disapprove. The other 7% are in the middle. Every time the comrades in New Jersey are polled, the numbers move away from approval and toward disapproval of Brainless Biden. What's really great about this is the comrades can't do anything about Brainless Biden, but they can rebel against the Communist Party of New Jersey (aka, Democratic Party) and start voting for the opponents of communists in the "elections". Of course, there are no election integrity laws in New Jersey so the crime will continue. And that will make the people there even angrier toward the communists.
  12. A Dutch entrepreneur uses worthless coconut husks instead of increasingly rare wood to make shipping pallets. This reduces the waste stream while saving millions of trees per year. Read the full story here:
  13. So far, the only thing Brainless Biden has "built back better" is the Taliban. Everything else has gotten significantly worse.
  14. First, it was the obviousness of the situation that informed us. There's no way a mentally retarded pedophile with advanced dementia and a dismal record could possibly beat a principled incumbent with a stellar track record, despite the incumbent's weaknesses such as his bragging and mean tweets. Then it was the difference between the retard with less than 6 people at a rally versus the incumbent with 30,000 people at one of his. Then Arizona's audit showed the retard lost there by a wide margin instead of beating the incumbent. Now, Wisconsin's audit is shaping up to be a repeat of the one in Arizona. There's no reason to expect the Georgia and Pennsylvania audits to be any different. Those four states, if corrected for voting fraud, would give the election back to Trump--the one actually voted by the people to be our President.

    The socialists and RINOs will say nothing can be done because there is no precedent. This is like saying after Pearl Harbor, which also had no precedent, that nothing can be done. Here we are now 10 months into the most destructive and costly first year of any President. It would be insane and irresponsible not to correct the grave injustice done to us by the massive fraud of the 2020 election. We need our President reinstated, we need criminals behind the fraud arrested not just on fraud but on treason, we need election reform in all the 36 free states (no hope of it in the socialist states), and we need people to push back hard against the deceit spewed by the socialists, libtards, and America-lasters.
  15. In Iowa, one of the 36 free states, people who lose their jobs because they refuse to endanger their health with the "Russian Roulette" jab are automatically eligible for unemployment compensation per a bill recently signed into law there. In the other 35 free states, it is still possible to collect but it's not (yet) automatic.
  16. In The People's Republic of Illinois, a federal judge ruled that a hospital system cannot put unjabbed hospital workers on unpaid leave. Read the full story, here:
  17. In The People's Republic of Illinois, the crazy mayor of Chicago has gone one step too far several times. Even here, where corruption, deception, and robbery are normal practices among the "elected" officials and people have put up with it for decades, the inmates of Illinois are increasingly losing their tolerance for being abused this way. Even with the brainwashing done by the media and the indoctrination centers (they used to be schools), it is looking like Illinois is well on its way to becoming a free state by popular demand. If Chicago is liberated, the rest of the state will soon follow.
  18. Research shows that some people actually believe that Brainless Biden won the 2020 election without massive fraud. This is good news, as it means scammers have a supply of morons to target. They can prey on the terminally stupid instead of collecting federal welfare checks. The morons self-identify, which makes finding and targeting them easy; that also means less crime perpetrated against the rest of us. Even better, many of these morons "work" for the lamestream media, and they deserve whatever misery they get.
  19. Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated the socialist criminal Terry McAuliffe, 50.7% to 48.6% in the governor's race in Virginia. The socialists were the heavy favorites in this race. People are increasingly sicker of socialism, both literally and figuratively. Virginia has now flipped from Blue to Red, due to the results of this election. Welcome to the fold, number 37!

    As socialism continues to create shortages of oats and other food staples and hungry Americans endure high winter heating bills thanks to socialist party ineptness and stupidity, more voters will reject socialism not only in the "battleground states" but in the non-free states such as Virginia. Even The People's Republic of New Jersey is undergoing major rumblings of freedom. Might Hawaii and California some day be free states operating under the Rule of Law and the US Constitution? One can hope!
  20. In the wake of the backlash in response to the intense damage done to the country by the socialists, 14 House Democrats are not seeking re-election in 2022. Keep in mind that House (mis)Representatives tend to stay in for a very long time due to the many illegal benefits of being on office. There are also some legal benefits, but when someone relatively poor is a multi-millionaire after only a few years in office I think we can draw the obvious conclusion. It is now too late to recruit replacements for the incumbents who are leaving and recruitment is a problem because defeat is almost certain and there's the whole "I don't actually hate my country" thing. Not a single Republican incumbent plans to jump ship. This means it is very likely at least 12 of those seats will switch from Socialist (Democrat, socialist, communist, America-haters, and the merely insane) to American (RINOs, Republicans, and patriots). And in those Congressional districts where the incumbent socialist wants to give it another go, we are going to see a route in many cases. It is very likely the Americans will gain a supermajority.
  21. As reported on Gateway Pundit, "Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has opened a formal criminal investigation into the fraudulent 2020 election and his office is now examining the suspects." This is a severe blow to the ruling communist/socialist party. They have long relied on lies, deception, fraud, and corruption in the lamestream media plus their ability to invoke the same at the ballot. Now they will have only the media, and there are powerful freedom fighters who have declared it their intention to destroy the media.

    In a fair contest, socialists never win. That's because they offer nothing positive and a whole lot of negative. And now, contests throughout the country will be an order of magnitude more fair. As election cheaters get indicted, fewer dishonorable people will be willing to take the personal legal risks involved in disenfranchising voters.

    Will our duly elected POTUS take his rightful place in the Oval Office, or will we still have to put up with the highly destructive, mentally retarded pedophile put there by several million counts of felony misconduct? Given that Brainless Biden is the best advertisement we have for soundly rejecting socialism, it is likely that the anti-socialism leadership will let this destruction run a while longer. There's also a fear that Black Lives Manipulated and other terrorists will, in response to a fair election being legally enforced, go back to inflicting murder and mayhem as the did during the Civil War of 2020. I say, let them do what they feel they have to do. Fully empower the police, National Guard, and other means of protecting the peace to arrest these violent offenders by whatever means necessary including lethal force. Appeasement brings more misery, not less.
  22. Several economists have estimated inflation for 2021 to be between 23% and 29%. Retirees on Social Security will get a 5.9% COLA adjustment for 2022. You can thank Joe Biden.

3. Brainpower tip


Battery-powered tools are now available with high-energy lithium batteries. While it was true until a few years ago that an electric mower is suitable for only a small lawn, that is no longer true. Seeing this development, libtards in the People's Republic of California now want to ban gasoline-powered lawn tools. Their "reasoning" is that doing so will somehow reduce pollution (especially carbon emissions).

The problem is libtards have no grasp of reality. None.

In one of Daniel Kahneman's works, he discussed the logical fallacy of "All you see is all there is." The libtards see a tool that doesn't emit pollution at the point of use, and from that mistakenly conclude there is no pollution emission associated with the tool. This is akin to checking the left side of a car that has a right side tailpipe and concluding the car does not emit exhaust because none is coming out the left side.

Electric power generation is mostly coal. The libtards also want to replace this with wind and solar, despite the fact we do not have enough land mass for the number of installations needed and doing so does not change the net carbon emission per KW over the lifespan of the power source regardless of whether it is coal, wind, or solar.

On top of this "zero advantage" problem, there's a 30% or more transmission loss by the time the power is available to recharge the battery. Unlike coal, gasoline does not emit mercury or radiation when burned. It's a cleaner fuel. What about the carbon? Pure coal IS carbon, while gasoline is a chemical mix that contains hydrocarbons. Gasoline has far higher energy density than coal. So lower carbon output burning gasoline.

In the libtard universe, lithium batteries grow wild in the ocean or somewhere, and they are 100% safe to eat. Also, strip mining is not at all ecologically damaging in the libtard universe (maybe libtards should visit a few strip mines). In the normal universe, the lithium is extracted through a very eco-damaging process from places like China and Afghanistan (Joe "brainless" Biden took us out of Afghanistan--way to go, retard(. The batteries also have battery separators (they require hexane--a hydrocarbon--to extrude and the pellets are made from hydrocarbon plastic so there goes your carbon again) and plastic cases.

The mental illness called "being a liberal" is so profound that there is no way to teach these mentally incapacitated people the basics of how power is generated, transmitted, and stored. Yet, they are allowed to vote and the equally brain-challenged fools they favor have a similarly delusional view of reality.

This issue of battery powered versus gasoline powered illustrates perfectly the need for establishing some minimal level of mental competence as a requirement for voting. It would mean not a single Democrat every gets elected, at least where elections aren't rigged.

It also means that for optimum application of brainpower, take care not to limit yourself with the "all you see is all there is" fallacy.

4. Finance tip

Under Donald Trump, tax rate reductions led to a $1 trillion infusion of capital into the USA from around the world [Source: Michael Moore, Economic Consultant with FreedomWorks]. The Joe "Brainless" Biden misadministration is trying to ram through a $5 trillion spending package (remember, spending = taxes because the equation must balance). This is on top of spending that has already impaired America's economic supremacy and brought severe inflation.

A year ago, we were an energy exporting nation with the lowest carbon emissions per capita of any industrialized nation. Now, under the Brainless misadministration, carbon emissions are up. And we are importing tens of billions of dollars from OPEC and Russia.

This rampant destruction of our economy will continue no matter how much we sane people tell our misrepresentatives to stop their attacks on America. And as individuals, we cannot possibly save and invest enough to offset the debasement of our currency, the tax hikes, the significantly higher energy costs (and the ripple effects), etc.

What is the solution? Unfortunately, we must ride this out until we can "undo the coup." That may or may not include correctly awarding the 2020 POTUS decision to Donald Trump. It certainly does include investing in voting integrity by supporting the efforts in Arizona with decent-sized monetary donations, lobbying for election reform in our own counties (it's easy to write to your county election board), and unabashedly speaking out against the fraud.

It is not "racist" to insist that people's votes should count rather than be mooted by fraud. It is stupid to stand by and let it happen again.

We have less than 14 months until the new Congress holds session. Let's make sure that, this time around, it is a Congress that supports our economic and financial interests.

5. Security tip

Covid is not a public health threat, and masks do not effectively reduce its transmission or protect the wearer from it. Yet, many places require people to wear a mask. Not for any medical reason, but there is a reason.

Masks allegedly reduce the saliva aerosol that carries the virus. I was thinking about this recently. It's a myth, not a fact. There isn't a big cloud of saliva particles created when people speak. If there were, we would see wet spots everywhere. Two people riding in a car, having a conversation--why are the windows not coated with saliva after 30 minutes? Why are their clothes not wet? Simple experiment: Stand two feet from a mirror and talk. Now check the glass, it's totally dry.

And if human saliva is such a Covid-harboring substance, why does the Covid test involve sticking a very long swab way up your nose? Because they are hoping to find something, anything, they can mislabel as Covid. And your saliva is not a good place to look else they would look there. Since the masks don't work as advertised because there's no saliva aerosol to stop, why are the masks required?

I'll tell you why masks are required.

If you'll notice, these requirements are most strict in places that also have "gun owner control." Gun owner control is bad public policy that seeks to ensure only criminals have guns. At the same time, we have "defund the police" and "abuse the police" policies. Now connect these dots.

If everyone is wearing a mask, how do you identify someone who robs you or holds up a store or bank where you are a bystander? Libtards are fetishists about protecting violent criminals from their victims and probably believe this mask wearing "completes the set". We generally recognize people by their facial features, but that doesn't work well when everyone is wearing a mask.

Make a habit of identifying people based on other characteristics:

  • Any visible tattoos. Try to look at someone who is disfigured this way and then look away and recall what the "body art" looked like. Often, these are just a blur of ink to other people. But pick out one thing such as its approximate size and location.
  • The degree of head forward posture. Be able to quantify this. For example, "the person's head is tilted 15 degrees forward".
  • Do this person's feet point outward (duckfoot), inward (pigeontoe), or straight?
  • What is the size of that person's belly? Is there a noticeable paunch? Try to use a basketball or other familiar measure. "His belly sticks out about 3/4 of a basketball from flat."
  • Voice. Is it high pitched, low-pitched, gravelly? Nasal?
  • Speech patterns and idioms. Any slurs, mispronunciations, or other distinct features? "He says 'store' with an sh sound"?
  • Are that person's hands bigger than yours, smaller than yours, or about the same size?
  • Long hair, short hair, buzz cut, ponytail, etc.?
  • Are the eyebrows bushy, thin, medium, or shaved off? Unibrow?
  • Nose hair, ear hair?
  • Hair on the back of hands? How thick, what color?
  • How does this person move? Athletically graceful or lunky?
  • What about posture? Is there a noticeable slouch?
  • What does this person smell like? Is this a smoker? Does the person smell fruity, a sign of diabetes?

Yes, people can change their clothes. But identify these anyhow:

  • Is the person wearing sneakers or leather shoes? What color? If leather, are they neatly polished or unkempt?
  • Is he wearing jeans or slack? What color? What condition?
  • What is that person's overall color palette (this seldom changes)?

And I hate to say it, because I generally do not use this characteristic to identify a person because there are so many other ones. But notice the degree of color in the skin. Rather than say a person is "black" (which is ill-defined), use the colors of foods. "His skin is the color of coffee with cream added". "An olive complexion". Or relative to your own color: "His skin is several shades lighter (darker) than my own."

Look at all the ways we can paint a mosaic to identify a person. To be able to do this, you must practice regularly so you have the skill if you ever need it. Now don't go ogling everyone as a means of practice; you just might get a whoopin' for being creepy and you've have that coming to you. One way to practice is to pick one aspect such as a person's feet and see what you can notice. Feet are great for practice because people tend not to notice if you are gawking at your feet. Or glance at someone and look away (simulating all the time you will have in a real crisis). What three things did you notice that might identify this individual.

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle
See my climbing videos here:
It's a common belief that lifting heavier weight makes you stronger. People "prove" this with charts that show how many reps per set they do on, say, the bench press. When they reach 12 reps, then for the next workout using the bench press they add weight and drop to 8 reps. Look at Joe! Six months ago, he was benching 120lbs. Now he's benching 180lbs! He is so much stronger!

Yes, let's look at Joe. He's arching his back and rounding his shoulders forward to move that weight. And each "rep" is about a quarter of the range of motion. When a personal trainer, a knowledgeable one, corrects Joe's form, it turns out Joe can bench only 95lbs. Not 120, and certainly not 180. I didn't just create these numbers, a personal trainer related this exact account to me. Joe (not his real name) wanted to increase his bench press because he "stalled out" at 180 lbs. In reality, he could bench only a bit more than half that amount. The "exercise" he was actually doing wasn't the bench press. But he did lift more weight, as if that somehow matters to a rational person.

What happens when you use too much weight is you compensate. Lifting too heavy for your (median delt) lateral raises? You'll work your trapezius and other muscles, taking most of the load off those delts. They will stay puny.

It's not how much weight you lift that matters. In fact, clever trainers are always coming up with ways to use less weight to get the same adaptive response. One technique is "pre exhaustion." To hobble yourself for an overhead press, you do a set of lateral raises right before going into the overhead press. The shoulders get the same hard training as if you were using a heavier weight, but your spine isn't subjected to as much compression.

Another trick is to use an exercise with a different leverage. Back squats look impressive because of all the weight on the bar. Change to front squats, and you must reduce the weight dramatically. You get the same hard training either way, but with front squats you subject your knees, hips, and spine to less compressive force.

Remember, this is training not performance.

If your goal is to impress yourself or others with how much you can lift, they won't be impressed. But you will have arthritis and other painful problems later in life.

  • Look at what happened to eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman. He lifted far more weight than he should have, and his arms are now considerably smaller than mine due to multiple surgeries, long convalesces, and other problems resulting from his injuries. I am chronologically four years older than he, but in terms of physical aging he is a couple of decades older than I. Instead of trying to push his body beyond its mechanical limits, he should have worked each session to get the adaptive response. He could have had the same amazing physique without destroying his body.
  • The other eight-time Mr. Olympia, Lee Haney, is 10 months older than I. And he still looks amazing (and yes, his arms still dwarf mine). He is active and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. He is a disciplined, goal-oriented person.

There is a saying among the best trainers. Check your ego at the door. The gym is not the place to hurt yourself trying to prove something. It is the place where you stimulate the adaptive response with "the long view" in mind.

The adaptive response is triggered by:

  1. Metabolic stress. This is a function of how much fuel you burn in a given time. Short rests, instead of long ones, between sets increases this. So does doing two different exercises back to back with no rest between them; the bulk of my training uses this method.
  2. Metabolic damage. This is a function of intensity; how much you "rev up" the muscles you are working. Using excessive weight is one path, but not the best path. Weakening muscles by techniques such as pre-exhaustion or making them work harder due to leverage and strict form achieves this without the injury that comes from excessive weight. The drawback is as you increase the intensity you must reduce the time under tension.
  3. Time under tension. This is how long a muscle is being tensed during a set. Doing more reps increases time under tension. The drawback is there's a trade-off with intensity.

Though they seem to be mutually exclusive, you can have both #2 and #3. Here is how:

  • Use lighter weight, as discussed above.
  • Use short rests between sets. This forces you to try to lift with inadequate fuel (glycogen), which makes each rep feel harder. If you try to get 12 reps, you will really be straining on those last 4 or 5. The intensity is about the maximum possible. And look at where your time under tension is; yes, it's also at a maximum (it seems going more than 12 reps is counterproductive, so 12 is probably your best number but it could be a bit lower in your particular case).
  • Do four sets instead of the commonly advised three.
  • Do several exercises for the same muscle in a given workout. This ratchets up the intensity with each "next" exercise, allows you to hit the muscle from different angles, and produces a slew of metabolic damage.

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

Sharks are essential for controlling the animals that eat plankton, which is our primary source of oxygen. They have been around for 450 million years, having survived 5 major extinctions. Now in the last 30 years, shark fin fishing and shark food fishing have reduced the world's shark population by 99%. Shark fin fishing means they hack off the shark's fins and toss it back into the water to die (imagine having your arms and legs hacked off and then being left to fend for yourself, that's what this is for the sharks).

Shark food fishing is stupid, as sharks are top of the food chain predators and thus highly toxic; but shark is sold under other names as Flake; Huss; Dogfish; Catfish; Grayfish; Steakfish; Whitefish; Lemon Fish; Moki; Cape Steak; Rock Salmon; Smoked Rock Salmon; Smoked Dogfish; Rigg; Gummy; Sea Ham; Sokomoro; Tofu Shark; Ocean Fillet; Surimi (Imitation Crab Meat). So don't eat those "foods".

The vast majority of shark sold as food is eaten in Asia, the same continent where three countries produce 70% of the world's pollution and contain 50% of the world's population. One of those countries, China, produces over half of the world's CO2 emissions. There are over 7 billion people on Earth, and only 1 billion of us live in the western hemisphere.
