1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good


Steve Kirsh sent this out on Friday the 18th:

"I just got a new paper from Stephanie Seneff and Kathy Dopp. From the abstract:

As of 6 February 2022, based on publicly available official UK and US data, all age groups under 50 years old are at greater risk of fatality after receiving a COVID-19 inoculation than an unvaccinated person is at risk of a COVID-19 death. All age groups under 80 years old have virtually no benefit from receiving a COVID-19 inoculation, and the younger ages incur significant risk. You can read the full paper here. It’s not published in a peer reviewed journal since it doesn’t support the narrative, but I get over 150,000 views on most of my articles, so please let us know in the comments if you find any errors."


Now, for other news:

  1. Freedom is erupting everywhere, and the socialists are stunned. They had counted on their brainwashing, bullying, and brazenness to subjugate all of us. They had not counted on the fact that common sense is far more common than they assume. Just because the typical socialist libtard is amazingly stupid doesn't mean everybody else is.
  2. The Ottowa protests over the immunity suppression jab mandates, asinine mask requirements, and useless restrictions is spreading. The fear sowed by the socialists to completely remake (destroy) our society has lost its grip on the vast majority of victims. If it can happen in a sheeple culture like socialist Canada, it can happen in places where people don't simply bend over on command. And it is happening.
  3. Judicial Watch has been warning counties to clean their voter rolls or face federal lawsuits. They notified counties in 5 states of specific violations of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. Because this is not a civil matter, but a statutory one, Judicial Watch will not need a massive treasury to bring suit or to fight these counties in court.
  4. Judicial Watch does go to court, however. They recently filed suit on behalf of a Massachussetts teacher who was fired for objecting to CRT in school.
  5. Judicial Watch also sued Asheville, NC over a racially discriminatory scholarship program. Some students were denied eligibility because they do not call themselves black.
  6. Judicial Watch has sued for Quacktor Fauci's financial disclosure records.
  7. I really like Judicial Watch, but if you read the preceding four items that's not news to you.
  8. New Jersey, which is under socialist control, is the first socialist state to end the irrational, anti-science mask mandate for school kids. This is a sign that the stupidity hegemony of the socialists is losing ground.
  9. The new head coach for the Dolphins refuses to do the whole "identify as" thing. Hoorah for him. Read the full story here:
  10. Hershey's is a company that has made its fortunes peddling "the other white powder" and thereby contributing heavily to diseases such as osteoporosis, colon cancer, Alzheimer's, and adult onset diabetes. So it's pretty cheeky of them to require employees to get the immunity-lowering jab "in the interests of maintaining a safe workplace". The jab does absolutely zero to slow transmission of any virus, so in what way is this requirement contributing to having a safe workplace? If Hershey's execs actually cared about having a healthy workplace, they would not leave samples of their own poisonous, disease-causing products for employees to eat. I have long boycotted this drug cartel simply because their highly-addictive, endocrine-disruptive, neuron-burning products cause disease. While I applaud those Hershey's employees who took termination instead of the jab, they should not have been working for that company in the first place.
  11. Did you know Brainless Biden signed a bill into law requiring automakers to have a new car fleet average of 55 MPG by 2026? The version of the Toyota Camry Hybrid that comes with dangerously hard tires (to reduce rolling resistance) tops out at 54 MPG. To get even 10% of the fleet at 55 MPG would require producing some seriously crappy automobiles such as one-seaters and many families would need two or three of them instead of one sedan. Imagine the traffic jams that will result from 60 million extra cars on the same roads we use today. How these people call themselves "progressives" when everything they do causes regression, I don't know.

    A better approach would be to include SUVs in the EPA mileage minimum. And then wait three years to raise it by 5 MPG from where it is now. That would give automakers time to adjust and consumers time to develop more taste for fuel-efficient vehicles.

    So why the idiotically high target? The libtards assume this target can be met by using electric cars. Electric cars take electricity generated by coal fired plants and transmitted at a significant loss over power lines, and store it in heavy metal devices called "batteries". A car battery is one of the most economically damaging things produced today, which is why something like 98% of lead acid batteries are recycled. The libtards get around this by changing from lead-acid to a lithium-based battery, as if that makes any real difference (it doesn't). Liberals strongly condemn the use of batteries due to the environmental issues, while ignoring the fact that electric cars have a whole lot more battery in them than a box of flashlights does.

    One consequence of this idiotically impossible to meet fleet average is automakers are spending far more money to build the same cars as before. Another consequence is you can expect many brands to simply pull out of the USA market. That means severe shortages of automobiles here, along with plant closings, dealership closings, and parts store closings. But perhaps it is time for each of us to own a Harley. If that is true, we should also take care to own the attitude that comes with riding a Harley. And the libtards won't like that one bit. Personally, I love that attitude because the F word is at its core. Yes, THAT F word: Freedom.

3. Brainpower tip


I've been watching the "controversy" of mask-wearing with a mix of amusement and utter disbelief.

  1. On the one side, you have idiots such as Quacktor Fauci and Nutcase Nancy behaving as if wearing a mask will save humanity from certain doom and not wearing one is the hateful, ignorant act of a selfish, stupid person.

  2. On the other side, you have people who played that game in pre-school where you put objects of different shapes and sizes into the correct holes of a wooden block. This game helps develop spatial intelligence, specifically the ability to differentiate sizes and shapes.

Does this need a bit more explaining?

Mask math

Take any cloth mask and hold it up to a bright light. If the mask is dense enough (with weave tightness, layers, or both), the light won't shine through it. If it does shine through, you can see the spaces between the fibers and of course there is no way it can stop a virus. If the light does not shine through, you can look at the front and back outer layers and probably still see individual fibers (and thus no virus filtration).

If you have a K95 mask, this trick might not work. So let me explain it this way.

A K95 mask filters up to 95% of particles 0.3 microns or bigger (5% will still pass through). Note also, that on the intake side any bad stuff is gong to pile up and quickly spread to the entire mask including the side you are breathing on. And if you have Covid, it will spread from the inside of the mask to the outside of the mask and you'll spew Covid anyhow. Thus, wearing a mask doesn't protect the wearer or another person for very long. How long is uncertain, but it's not long. Set some food on a toilet seat; how long will you leave it there as "safe" before you pick it up and eat it? It's that kind of time we are talking about.

But does a K95 mask protect you from Covid at all? That seems to be the question many are asking, and I find it remarkable that studies have been performed to answer the question. Studies are not necessary, you just need to belong to Group 2 above and have two bits of information. If a member of Group 2 knows the mask micron filtration level and the virus size, that person will correctly answer the question.

Viruses range in size from 0.004 microns to 0.1 microns. The Covid viruses range from 0.07 to 0.09 microns in size [Source:]. Or in nanometers, it's 300:90. So, no, the masks do not slow transmission or protect anybody from Covid. Even if you had a mask that could filter down to 0.06 microns, you still have the fact it does not stop all particles. Filters are not perfect, and that's why you see a percentage stated. Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and read the labels on furnace filters. You'll see the micron rating stated with a percentage; some particles will pass through, even if they are bigger than the stated micron level.

Be smart about it

Why is this a brainpower tip rather than a health tip? Is it because people are getting upper respiratory problems and other negative health outcomes, including "mask absence induced anxiety"? Well, they are suffering those consequences (and others) because they have not stopped to consider the basic problem preschoolers tackle per my opening remarks. Out of fear, they accept the absurdities spewed by psychopaths like Quacktor Fauci. Fear resides in the amygdala. The more the amygdala is engaged, the less the cerebral cortex is engaged. To stop the fear, and thus get a big IQ boost, you simply need to step back and question the claims and statements that make you fearful. Or that cause you to do something irrational, thus triggering even more anxiety.

In this case, the two central questions are:

  1. How small of a particle can the mask stop?

  2. How small are the viruses?

We can see Covid viruses are always smaller than the smallest size particle the mask can filter out, by a factor of slightly more than 3:1. If you understand that 3 is larger than 1, then you understand a mask is useless against Covid.

Fauci's Folly

If Fauci cannot see that 3 is bigger than 1, why is he still in that job? It's not even first grade math. It's simpler than that. My cat clearly knows that 3 is larger than 1. So she is more qualified than Fauci for his current job as "Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President."

The mandates assume adults are incapable of understanding that 3 is bigger than 1 (0.3 vs. 0.1). Is this how the bullies in charge (BICs) really see the rest of us? As being THAT stupid? Or are the mandate makers really that stupid?

What I like about this situation is the BICs insult our intelligence and alienate those of us who can do basic math AND the BICs are Democrats. This insistence on insulting us will help with the November elections. For this reason, I would like to see very harsh mask mandates this fall. That way, instead of taking 60 seats from the House socialists, we might take 160 seats from them.

Wearing a mask is not consequence-free, there are real health consequences to long-term overly-frequent use. So why are Quacktor Fauci and the socialist politicians so adamant we wear masks? Obvious answer: They want us all to get sick. We can either comply with their "get sick" mandates or refuse to comply. They have no moral authority for insisting we live in fear while doing stupid things to make ourselves sick. The good news is that civil disobedience of the absolutely stupid mask mandates is on the rise. That means people are tired of being insulted by such absolutely stupid mandates, which means they are becoming tired of the socialists and all of their "from the science" pronouncements and mandates that have zero basis in reality much less science.

And here are two Marines who show us the science:

The health question

Now I suppose I should answer the health question (how to protect yourself from Covid), in case any readers were relying on masks and now wonder what to do.

First of all, the masks provide zero protection so you haven't lost anything by now discovering they are useless against Covid. In fact, by not wearing a mask you will be less likely to spread Covid if you have it (think about how people have to repeat themselves and be LOUDER when wearing a mask) and you will have less bacteria, mold, and other junk taxing your nasal filtration system (assuming you were even breathing through your nose while wearing a mask).

You are not going to stop pathogens from entering your environment, so forget all that nonsense about six feet of distance and socially isolating. You can't get more distant and isolated on earth than Antarctica, and look what happened there. What you have to do is beef up your ability to handle Covid and other pathogens.

21 things you can do to protect yourself from Covid:

  1. Cut way back on highly processed food. Replace it with fruits and vegetables. Personally, I prefer 0% highly processed food.

  2. Don't eat wheat, corn, or soy. That leaves out a lot of typical food, but the foods made with these are calorie dense and nutrient sparse. And they are contaminated with glyphosate, a powerful neurotoxin.

  3. Get rid of harsh chemical cleaners in your home. Use vinegar and baking soda.

  4. Get rid of fragrances in your home, these are usually petrochemical carcinogens.

  5. Declutter any room in which you spend much time. Clutter is a known stress magnifier and sensory overloader.

  6. Keep kitchen counters as bare as possible, so that you can clean as much surface as possible. For non-stone (e.g., granite) countertops, clean with white vinegar (spray bottle and a cloth).

  7. Don't avoid people, don't avoid touching, and don't avoid conversation. See Mental Health, 101.

  8. Use a neti pot to clean your sinuses (betadine or saline solution).

  9. Floss regularly.

  10. Go to bed at the same time every night. If you need an alarm to wake you up, you are not going to be early enough.

  11. Wash your bedding in hot water once/week.

  12. Ensure you have adequate C, D3, zinc, phosphorous, and magnesium; supplementation is almost certainly required here (for D3, it absolutely is required, you need at least 5X the RDA).

  13. Don't watch the news, get newscasts on your phone, or read newspapers. In addition to being wrong on every issue, these "sources" are profoundly negative and that does reduce your immunity.

  14. Change your home air filter regularly. Check it each week, and if it's discolored then replace it. Don't wait for a thick accumulation of stuff.

  15. Clean your coffee pot regularly, using vinegar. Else, it will be a bacteria breeding ground.

  16. Run the dishwasher empty, with just a cup of vinegar added. Same for the clothes washer.

  17. Don't eat seed oils (canola, safflower, etc.). In addition to causing brain damage and arterial damage, they lower your immunity. These oils are rancid when bottled, and the lipids are shredded with many sharp edges.

  18. Go outside. Get sunshine.

  19. Get sunshine while inside in the winter. How? Bare some skin and stand in the light coming in through a window. Even 10 minutes of this makes a huge difference.

  20. Live with purpose.

  21. Make a point of doing things that are fulfilling to you. Not just pleasure (dopamine) but long-term satisfaction (serotonin). For example, rather than watch television (dopamine), help a child learn to read (serotonin). Many people derive fulfillment from making healthy, delicious meals; I enjoy the whole process, starting with selection at the grocery store, and find it very fulfilling.

4. Finance tip

Except for the extremely lucky, nobody is going to out-earn or out-save the inflation that the socialists are inflicting on us. Combine that with their assault on the energy industry, their vax mandates, and their other destructive behaviors, and in short order you have severe financial distress for about 99% of the population.

I keep reading about how at least we will be able to replace Brainless Biden in three years. Wrong. Let me explain, by dint of prescribing what each of us needs to do:

  1. NOW: Contact your state rep, state senator, and state governor about election reform that is aimed at election integrity. We need to end rampant corruption of our elections.
  2. December of this year: Contact every Republican in the House and Senate (there will be many new ones) about impeaching Harris and then Biden first thing in January. Now, I know this sounds daunting. But when I was under IRS attack for 17 years in direct violation of dozens of statutes, I contacted all members of the House and Senate multiple times. It can be done.
  3. Late January of next year: Repeat what you did in December.

If the Republicans actually care about America, here is what they will do:

  1. Immediately after the November elections, decide which person will be the Speaker of the House while keeping in mind that person will be sworn in as POTUS in February.
  2. Immediately upon convening in January, the House will start an impeachment against Harris and the Senate will expedite it through. The Biden impeachment will be exactly one day behind.
  3. In February, the Speaker will become the POTUS.
  4. Upon taking office, the POTUS will immediately go about un-Bidening things as much as is practical.
  5. Congress will pass strong legislation re-opening the pipeline Biden shut down, and take other measures to put us back where we were in terms of energy independence and our low carbon footprint.
  6. Listen to the Democrats and show by example how to behave toward those who disagree. But also extend special status to the two national heroes who stopped the socialist takeover despite the risks to themselves. The next POTUS should award the Medal of Honor to Senema and Manchin.
  7. Insist that the DOJ go after Fauci and other psychopaths who have irreparably harmed this country.
  8. Repeal and replace the Unaffordable Care Act.
  9. Indict Hillary Clinton on multiple counts of felony, including treason and high treason.
  10. Indict the tech titans who interfered with our elections, helped spread Covid disinformation by suppressing the truth and attacking those attempting to communicate the truth, and who exclude themselves from regulations by playing semantics. They also cheat on their taxes, but in "creative" ways that are "wink, wink, nod" and get by with it. The IRS should make an example of one of them, my pick is Mark Zuckerberg.

If the Republicans don't do these things, it will be our fault for silently sitting by and letting them fail. What if you don't have the time to contact them? If you believe that is the case, you are not looking at the huge cost we all will incur if these things are not done. Another two years of Biden, even as a lame duck, means two more years before we have a competent, non-socialist chief executive who can work on the badly needed repairs.

Let's do this. Let's invest some time and change this awful financial picture. For many of us, the pay per hour will be multiples of what we make right now. And if a big effort is a mind-number for you, then confine it to only your reps. You would then contact two state congress people, your governor, your congressional rep, and your two state senators. That's only 6 people, easy-peasy. But what do you say to them? See my list of 10 items!

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle
See my climbing videos here:
I was 18 or 19 years old when my buddy Larry and I joined the Rockford Karate Club. One of the things that our Sensei (John Allen) was adamant about was to avoid getting big muscles. For the next few decades, I kept my training such that it would not produce much hypertrophy. This, despite the fact that when I quite Karate and got into Kung Fu many of those people were very muscular. I had been in serious sparring matches and some street fights, and won those due in no small part to blazing speed. I kept attributing the speed to muscles that aren't any bigger than they need to be (and I was wrong).

The training I used is called strength training. It's hard and brutal, because you use heavy weights and low reps. Because you don't do volume, you rarely get "the pump" and just don't develop the capillarization that bulks out the muscle. The amount of weight involved in increasing your capillary network is trivial, yet the extra capillaries provide several benefits for athletic performance.

More than 45 years after that start under John's tutelage, my buddy Larry and I were talking about this. Larry said, "And John was wrong". Larry and I both had given up this idea and purposely added both muscle size and vascularity. Like me, he had waited decades to see the light on this issue.

If you watch my climbing videos over time from the date the photos that accompany this article were taken, you see that I progressively added size since then. And today, I am noticeably bigger. Some people have asked me if this has made it harder for me to climb, since I weigh more. No, I am stronger, can do harder climbs, and can go longer. I can actually perform a front lever for as long as a roof climb takes, for the entire climb. My climbing buddy Adam is as ripped as I am, but has much more hypertrophy. He's clearly a better climber than I am, so extra muscle is not a detriment.

Sometimes, someone will tell me they do full body workouts twice a week (or they do this or that other bare effort) because, "I don't want to get huge muscles." Unless they are taking steroids AND have a genetic make-up that allows for oversized muscles, they needn't worry. The far bigger danger is that of being undermuscled and it's a reality for the vast majority of people. The wimpy workouts, if even those are done, leave serious strength development out of reach.

Being undermuscled doesn't mean you are simply not as strong. It means you have muscle imbalances, such as (very common) your hamstrings are too weak relative to your quads. You have pain, tendon injuries, loss of function, increased rate of atrophy, endocrine problems, and eventually loss of mobility.

People use the "I don't want to get huge muscles" rationale in a failed effort to recast their lack of drive and discipline as an effort to ensure they look good. Yet, the opposite happens. A saggy butt does not look good, yet it's normal at about mid-life. Sagging shoulders, sagging belly, and sagging underams are all unattractive and all preventable with a proper training program.

What is a proper training program? Jackie Chan is my age (61, not exactly a spring chicken), and he lifts no weights. Yet, anyone who looks at him would have to say he has a proper training program. The dude even has a set of glutes, something indicative of a person who takes training seriously because working those is among the toughest things you can do. The typical gym rat doesn't work them at all.

The fear of accidentally winning next year's Mr. Olympia contest has no basis in reality. But is there a chance you can still get too muscular if you aren't careful? If you rent, borrow, or buy the documentary, "I Am Bolt" you can see the training regimen of Usain Bolt, the world's greatest athlete. This is a man who trains hard with weights. Women all over the world swoon over that physique. He's not "too muscular". He has, instead, developed his muscles to his genetic potential and with symmetry. You don't have to train as hard as Usain Bolt to have a great-looking, strong, healthy body. But you still must train hard.

There's no downside to making your muscles as big as they can naturally get. Both the process and the results are rewarding.

If you haven't started a proper training program or have lapsed, how can you start (or restart)? I would suggest simply scheduling the time for a split routine program (5 or 6 days/wk) that hits a given muscle group with multiple exercises. Start off with one or two sets per exercise, and gradually increase this to four sets per exercise. Focus on getting the full range of motion, for example taking your squats down to the bottom. The more you stick with this, the easier it will be to stick with. I haven't missed a workout since 1977. I just make it a priority. You can, too.


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

Before public education was nationalized via the Department of Education, the United States had the highest literacy rate and the highest numeracy rate of any nation on earth. In less than a generation after the DoE was established, among the industrialized nations we dropped to dead last in literacy and second from last in numeracy. Now the socialists want to nationalize our elections, too. Do you see the problem?

8. Thought for the Day

If Trump is wrong about the theft of the 2020 election, why are the socialists ("Democrats") in such a lather to loosen up the rules even further?
