1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good
The Covid Scam|
- Not a single national government has behaved as if Covid were actually a
health threat. By this, I mean they never addressed the
leading causes of disease (seed oils and vegetable oils as "food", tobacco,
"the other white powder") or even took common sense measures such as
cancelling the Daylight Carnage Time clock changes. Simply cancelling DCT
would have removed a major risk factor. They closed gyms, but not McDonald's
or Burger Kings; this means they helped tilt the game toward giving Covid
the advantage. And why did they not at least require health caution labels
on drugs like processed sugar or on straight out disease-causing poisons
like seed oils and vegetable oils? Low-hanging fruit! At the same time,
they came out with mask mandates (knowing full well masks do not filter out Covid), business shutdowns, and a host of truly idiotic measures that would
increase death and misery while doing absolutely nothing to slow down Covid.
So clearly, they did not believe Covid was a public health menace. While
that belief is correct, these same psychopaths have continued pushing the
non-vaccines which are killing more otherwise healthy people than Covid did.
- In the People's Republic of Canada, truckers took a stand against
harmful, useless requirements made per Quacktor Fauci's bizarre version of
"science". The PRC government,
led by Fidel Castro's bastard son, reacted as communist governments always
do. But that has not stopped the truckers. It has, however, caused other
citizens to join them. Read more about that, here:
- The Stup(id)-Preme Court rejected the New York school worker's case
against the immunity reduction jab mandates that are illegal in enough ways
to make your head spin. Since the jab does nothing to protect against Covid
death or Covid transmission, it also has no scientific or public interest
purpose. The SCOTUS could have ruled the mandates illegal on those grounds
alone. One has to wonder on what legal or moral grounds the SCOTUS supports
this insanity. Perhaps they, like many others, are too easily manipulated by
Orwellian language abuse and they somehow actually believe the jab is
actually a vaccine despite zero evidence to support that idea. Is it too
late to get a couple of them to take a great deal I have to offer on a
bridge in Brooklyn?
- United Airlines had previously required employees to submit themselves
to the immunity reducing jab. So many employees (predictably) got sick from
that, United has changed its policy and is now permitted the unjabbed to
return to their jobs. Another factor in their decision is they are embroiled
in a lawsuit over this jab mandate. We should all boycott United until they
settle that suit. Personally, I am boycotting the whole passenger aviation
system because of the mask requirement. When something so stupid and so
pointless is forced on people, we need to stand against it at every
opportunity. I hate to punish the airlines, but they could simply demand
some kind of scientific rationale or mathematical proof that shows 70 is
larger than 300 and therefore masking can stop a virus. Since providing that
is impossible, the mandate cannot stand. Pretending your hands are tied in
the matter? You deserve a boycott.
- Masking has now become a "virtue signaling" thing among libtards and
other mindless morons. The mask reminds me of those "I'm with Stupid" tee
shirts, except the "with" is not there.
- Libtards aren't the only people who can signal by wearing a mask. People
with functioning brains can, too. Check this one out (thanks for the tip,
- If you have 18 minutes to invest, watch this speech by Dr. Julie Ponesse:
- The state-run media accepted $1 billion to push false information about
the immunity reduction jab. Guess where the funds came from? Read the full
Thanks to my freedom-fighting friend Joseph for providing this tidbit.

from me months ago:

- Did you know there is a vaccine (of sorts) for colon cancer? This
disease can be eradicated. But don't look for any government to help with
that, because as we have seen during the Covid scam our governments want
more of us to die and they aggressively work toward that goal. Here is how
you prevent colon cancer: Eliminate from your diet hydrogenated oil
(oncologists recognize this poison as not just a risk factor but as a cause
of colon cancer) and eat eggplant (unbreaded, not fried) daily. Eggplant
contains three different compounds that each attack colon cancer cells in a
slightly different way; oncologists say eggplant is more powerful against
colon cancer than any Big Pharma drug.
- We are now about a week past the Daylight Carnage Time clock change. If you
participated in this population control measure, how did you feel? How do
you feel now? Brain a little foggy? The sleep deprivation caused by this
clock change lowers mental acuity well below the level of someone who failed
a breathalyzer and came in just over the "legally drunk" limit. Now is the
time to plan for all future clock changes, while you are feeling the bad
effects of it and know it's a problem. You can incrementally change your
habits (meals, bed time, etc.) one month prior or just skip it altogether. I
leave my clocks on DCT all year around, since DCT is in play for all but
those few months from early November to mid-March.
- The school nurse shortage is getting worse, as is the shortage of nurses
generally. Direct blame for the acceleration of an already bad trend goes to
Quacktor Fauci, Brainless Biden, the Centers for Disease Confusion, and the
other psychopaths pushing the nonsensical "Covid measures" while requiring
the immunity reduction jab for medical care workers. If you like having
nurses in schools and hospitals, then complain about the aforementioned
psychopaths and contribute funds to their political opponents (e.g.,
Republicans). If you think it is OK for someone to lie in a dirty bedpan for
11, then vote Democrat. Read more about the school nurse shortage here:
- Several recent studies have shown that a diet based on whole foods
(rather than processed) greatly reduces hair loss. One reason is it's
nutrient-dense, another is it doesn't stimulate the insulin over-response,
and another is it's anti-inflammatory. This same diet shows up in EVERY
study that shows ANY kind of health benefit, from cancer prevention to
slowing the effects of aging. This diet, compared to the processed food
diet, increases your intelligence, improves your sense of well-being,
slashes your medical bills, makes you smell better, improves your skin,
eliminates the possibility of getting adult onset diabetes, keeps you from
becoming obese, helps you keep your bones strong, and [pick 10,000 other
benefits from a much longer list]. The processed food diet has only one
advantage. It's more convenient. But the time saved through convenience is
lost through illness, underperformance, and premature death. In short, there
is no reason to base your diet on processed foods. If you want to add to the
profit that McDonald's enjoys by peddling rancid vegetable oils and
addictive sugar, then go ahead. But if you care about the quality and length
of your life, choose whole food.
- Sam Matier, a personal friend and powerful force against government
corruption, recently passed away from heart failure. Sam enjoyed long, hill climbing walks with his dog Bella
so it wasn't like he was nursing home material. But Sam had taken
the jab, which is known to cause just this very thing (see the VAERS site
Steve Kirsch's Newsletter -- firstname.lastname@example.org). Another fallen hero. RIP.
- Almost half of the states (USA) have passed legislation protecting
women's sports. All of the ones that have done this are free states. You can
bet the socialist states will continue to subject female athletes to
intrusion by males who have no honor. If you live in a state where women's
sports are not protected, ask yourself if it's OK to just let dudes come in
and take all the wins. If not, then write to the sports commission, your
state senator and rep (not federal, state), and your county board. You could
also try your city council, perhaps they will pass a local ordinance but
that does not help in intra-city competitions. There was a time when we
normals did not need to be bothered with all this activism. Now is not that
- The libtards have been unfairly and dishonestly attacking Justice
Clarence Thomas since his 1991 nomination. After decades of failing to
intimidate this man into betraying his country, they are now attacking his
wife in hopes that cowardly behavior will at last subdue the greatest of the
living Justices. If hell exists, there is a special place there for these
people. Let us not forget that Barry Soetoro (aka Obama) publicly besmirched
Thomas during one of his speeches when Soetoro was illegally our POTUS.
Thomas, befitting the dignity of his office, has never retaliated.
- Alabama has removed the requirement for a permit to carry a pistol. This
is a direct violation of the OSHA For Criminals Program so vehemently
propagated by the socialists. Congratulations to Alabama, which is now a
much safer place for law-abiding citizens.
- Congress has extended the EIDL (Economic Injury Disaster Loan, made
available to small businesses damaged by the idiotic shutdown to "flatten
the curve") grace period (no payments required) from 18 months to 30 months.
This allegedly to help businesses recover from Covid, but those of us with a
mental age greater than 3 years old know it's because Brainless Biden has so
devastated the economy.
- Most of the people who actually voted for Biden must be spinning in
their graves (the same ones they voted from).
- For many months now, the Washington Examiner, which purports to be a
conservative magazine, has supported the "Trump lost fair and square" lie. I
had a subscription, but called and cancelled it. They asked is there is a
problem with the magazine. I said, "Yes. In issue after issue, 3 or 4
articles falsely assert the lie that the 2020 election wasn't stolen despite
mountains of evidence showing it was. It's like reading a left-wing
publication. You need to contact Wendy Rogers and see. Every swing state
that went to Biden had massive fraud and irregularities. Then there's common
sense. Did a majority of voters actually object to the lowest unemployment
in 50 years, the lowest gasoline prices in a long time, energy independence
for the first time since the 1960s, and the fact the USA was the only nation
to meet its carbon target? It seems like the answer is obvious when you see
30,000 people at a Trump rally every time he has one and then nobody shows
up for a Biden rally. Because your magazine takes such an irrational
position, I cannot trust the other content to be reality-based so it's not
- Few Americans realize that Venezuela has more oil reserves than Russia
or that it has (thanks to tectonics, mostly) an unusually high concentration
of mineral resources (gold and other industrial metals). Like the United
States, it was once a free country. Like the United States, it was taken
over by socialists. The fall of Venezuela occurred before the fall of the
USA, and so they are further along in the downward spiral that socialism
brings. We are hanging on only because of the dispersion of power in our
Constitution; we have 33 free states that act like a brake as we teeter on
the cliff above the abyss. Checks and balances in the federal government
have been almost entirely obliterated. But back to Venezuela. Its strategic
importance is extremely high, owing to not just its mineral resources
(including oil), but its proximity to the USA.
Theodore Roosevelt established a doctrine whereby the USA permits no powers
from the other hemisphere to have control of nations or territories in this
one. But now that we are a headless and failed state with a woke military
and a broken Navy (which depends on untrained sailors to maintain outdates
ships with obsolete parts), we stand no chance of preventing Russia or China
from dominating this hemisphere. We have a socialist country on our northern
border and thanks to Brainless Biden we don't have a southern border. The
Ukraine invasion strikes me as a "toe in the water" test of how well the USA
and its (few remaining) allies can respond. Not well at all, as we now know.
So most likely, Taiwan will fall before the end of summer and Russia and
China will cooperate under a single command to take Venezuela and then
This is a very negative forecast, but that's how I read the cards we've been
dealt. But there is another possibility. And it's that Putin is merely
trying to wake us up so that we stand as a buffer to an increasingly more
powerful China. That's kind of a chess thing, isn't it? Ever hear of any
Russians being good at chess? :)
An example of fighting stupidity
Here is an e-mail I sent to a stupidity purveyor:
Today I invited my significant other to the Nelson-Atkins to celebrate her
birthday. We were excited about seeing this museum again, it has been too long
since our last visit. When I went to the Nelson-Atkins site to reserve tickets,
however, I saw something that caused us to choose a different locale.
I wear K95 masks when I need to, for example when doing drywall work in my
home. A K95 blocks 95% of particles 300nm or larger. The largest Covid viruses
are only 70nm. Look up these numbers, please. Covid goes right through a K95
mask, even if you wear three of them at a time.
Your mask requirement is totally NOT from the science. It even fails the
standard of being from second grade math. For a museum of this stature to
perpetuate the mask farce is simply wrong.
Yes, "Doctor" Fauci has been advocating masks. But he's also advocated many
other pointless things, so giving him any credibility is delusional at best. If
you understand that 70 is considerably smaller than 300, you will end this mask
charade immediately. I trust you can do the math. Please take a moment to do it.
Thanks, Mark Lamendola
P.S. The museum could serve the community well by making a display showing
why these masks are 100% non-effective against Covid. That would be the
honorable thing to do.
Note that in this example, I did not go into the saliva cloud theory that the
math-challenged used to defend masks. For this theory to have any validity, all
cars would have windshield wipers on the inside. Yet no cars are ever built that
way, and it's because we don't spew clouds of saliva. Perhaps they also think we
don't notice that masks aren't dripping wet after being worn for an hour,

3. Brainpower tip
Spinach is very good for you, and eating it daily is not a
bad idea. But if you decided to eat nothing but spinach, that would be a bad idea.
You'd miss out on many nutrients that just are not found in spinach.
So it is with your mental diet. Reading is widely touted as
the single best way to get smarter. I would find that position hard to argue
against, and not just because I am an avid reader. But reading alone will not
fully develop your potential intelligence. It will, in fact, leave you with
deficiencies of intelligence if that is the only exercise your mind gets. Here
are some ways to nourish your mind:
Be a maker. Working with your hands to build or repair
things develops several areas of intelligence. It's also very enjoyable if
you are good at it. If you're not good at it, get instruction and practice
until you are (that will also improve your mind).
Engage in physical training. Your brain is a physical
organ. Physical training, done on a regular schedule, supports a healthy
brain in multiple ways (blood flow, for example).
Participate in a sport. I regularly practice martial
arts and I climb almost every weekend (and sometimes during the week). There
are at least seven or eight areas of intelligence developed by doing this.
Take up hunting, even if you decide to shoot with a
camera instead of a firearm. Developing tracking skills and a keen power of
observation will really sharpen your mind. Developing the ability to sit
still in a blind also can improve your mind. My buddy Tom has taken this to
the next level, having developed the ability to lie perfectly still in the
open in a ghillie suit.
Commune with animals. Having a relationship with a cat
or dog, where you really pay attention to them, develops your mind. If you
can also make a pal with a wild animal you will take this to the next level.
Care to help a robin by digging worms up for her to take to her babies?
Have intelligent conversations with knowledgeable
individuals. You can learn from them and thus build your knowledgebase (that
is one of the benefits of reading, too).
Work crossword puzzles.
Play Scrabble or another board game with friends.
Get an SAT prep book and work all the problems in it.
If your job is not mentally challenging, look into
expanding your role so that it is. If you are working 8 to 12 hours a day
and not getting mental stimulation from it you should either change the job or
find a different one.
Volunteer to serve on a board in some organization that
represents your interests, but for a limited term so you don't burn out.
Church, bowling league, professional association, public library, home
owner's association, PTA, whatever. Yes, it takes time. But it can be very
rewarding and help you make new friends and contacts.
Watch instructional videos on YouTube. Pick a new
interest and watch a dozen or so related videos.
Standard IQ tests measure only 7areas of intelligence,
basically math and reading related, plus some logic. But there are many other
areas of intelligence, and developing just a few of those will give you a
healthier, more powerful, more decline-resistant brain.
For many people, the challenge isn't to go beyond spinach,
it's to get any nutrition at all. If you supercharge your brain with a varied
mental diet, you will be so far beyond them it's ridiculous. And that brings me
to another point. Avoid libtards. They are stupidity generating autobots, and
that stupidity could infect your mental system the way a computer virus infects
a hard drive. Avoid them and their sources of stupidity, such as television
"news" and CDC announcements.
4. Finance tip
While Joe Biden is clearly the dumbest POTUS we've have ever had,
Americans who silently put up with his financial destruction are not behaving any
smarter. Here are some ways you can speak out and help change the situation:
- Boycott Facebook. Why: This company went to great lengths to help the
socialists succeed in their coup. If you don't like the fact gasoline prices
are twice what they were 18 months ago yet you still use Facebook, you need
to figure out which is more important to you because you can't have both.
- Boycott Twitter. Why: They are still censoring to support the socialist
narrative and still censoring to support the death-increasing Covid scam
- Cancel any subscriptions to any pro-socialism magazines, newsletters,
newsfeeds, channels, etc., then write to them and tell them why you
- Write to your member of Congress with a specific beef. My MOC is a
left-wing radical socialist, and I write to her anyhow. This seems futile,
but it lets her know there are people who have at least two functioning
brain cells (a fact that scares the bejesus out of socialists).
- Send a note of support and appreciation to Senators Senema and Manchin.
Do not suggest they are channeling Reagan or in any way "supporting
Republicans". These two senators are very much Democrats and Senema is very
much a liberal. It's just that they are not willing to engage in scorched
earth, short-term thinking insanity such as nuking the filibuster. They
aren't "standing with the Republicans" by doing this, they are standing with
their principles by doing this
- Contact your county election board and demand election integrity
protection, even if you live in a free state.
- Refuse to wear a face diaper, except in cases where your job requires
you to fly and thus diaper up per FAA regulations. Face diapering is purely
a "virtue signaling" practice, though there's nothing virtuous about it.
- Make decisions based on free state status, where applicable. For
example, my company will not accept purchase orders from any state agency in
California, New York, New Jersey, New Mexico, etc.
- Refuse to play Orwellian language games. For example, we do not have a
democracy. We have a democratic republic. If you do not understand why this
distinction is very major, set aside some time to learn about it (30 minutes
should be more than ample).
- Consider flying a Let's Go Brandon flag in your yard, wearing a Let's Go
Brandon T-shirt, or even flying a big ***** Joe Biden banner on your pickup
truck as several people in these parts are doing.
- Contribute $50 to Marjorie Taylor Greene's campaign.
- Contribute $50 to help Candace Owens
stand against tyranny.
- Contribute $50 to Wendy Rogers, who has spearheaded election reform
- Subscribe to the Imprimus
- Spread this eNewsletter! Forward it to friends, enemies, and family!
- Think of other things you can do to show you are not happy with the
lunacy and do not support the lunacy.
Another thing to consider if you are using Facebook is this. If you
"need" it to keep up with your friends, then they really aren't your friends
in the first place. They are just people on Facebook. You don't need it or
them in your life. If those are the only "friends" you have, then fix that
by getting out and doing something where you can make friends. I love
climbing, and have made many friends in that sport (three of them are
actually in my will, that's how close some of these friendships can become).
Climbing may not be for you, but there are many other group activities
available in your area. Or start your own. I have a neighbor who started a
Canasta club; they all meet at her place once a month.
Be unapologetic when speaking the truth. For too long, there's been
a gross asymmetry here. Socialists spew vitriol at people who don't agree
with their absurdities and sometimes viciously attack non-enablers. Normal,
have lost their jobs due to socialist pressure on their employers for the
"crime" of politely stating something the socialist ideology is against.
It does not do us any good to soft-pedal truth. I think the socialists take
it as a sign of weakness when we do. So state it without apology. That
doesn't mean to imitate the socialists and be uncivil, we are better than
Here's an example of what I mean. I walked into a store and a face-diapered
individual mumbled something and handed me a flyer. I asked, "Is that a K95
mask?" It wasn't, but the face-diapered person nodded yes. I said, "I want
you to look this up when you get home. A K-95 filters down to zero point 300
microns. The Covid virus is only zero point 70 microns, so it goes right
through that mask. Remember, 300 and 70. The mask is pointless." Short
and to the point, and then I walked away.
I do not apologize for stating the
truth. I do not pretend it is my opinion, which invites them to assert their own
ignorance-based belief in response. I am educating them, no discussion is
necessary. Here are the facts, look them up please and thanks for hearing what I
have to say.
I do not care that someone might be "offended" that I ask them to
verify what I am about to tell them and then share the truth with them. I do
care that their head up the butt acceptance of blatant lies robs them of their
humanity, self-determination, and freedom--and that they live in fear because of
whackjobs like Quacktor Fauci and disorganizations like the CDC.
Because I am
their liberator and not their attacker, I state the truth with cheer rather than
acrimony. And I leave them with that gift to cogitate on later and arrive at
their own conclusions (something they haven't done before, apparently).
5. Security tip
It's a bit disconcerting that people can walk into banks wearing masks,
while at the same time signs on the door prohibit law-abiding citizens from
bringing firearms inside. I say "a bit" rather than "very", because I am
really not the guy you want to mess with even if you do have a gun. I've
disabled an armed attacker on more than one occasion, including an armed
intruder who surprised me in my home after I got out of the shower (I didn't
hear the perp enter, because I was in the shower). But I'm not typical.|
Here is how to protect yourself in the "gun free" zones that banks are, in
this age when criminals can wear masks and stroll right into a bank without
appearing to be out of place.
- Always dress appropriately for going to the bank. Leather shoes are
- Survey the lot before you park. Is there a car sitting near the door
with the engine running? That's a bad sign. You should probably wait
until that car has gone. Alternatively, you could call the police and
report what you see. Anyone stupid enough to do that if they aren't
robbing the bank deserves to be hassled.
- Back into your parking space, so that you can pull out easily. This
will prevent you from running over someone, unless that someone steps in
front of you to rob you because they figure you will see them and stop.
If the latter case is true, stomp on the gas.
- Take some weapon with you. An ink pen can do in a pinch, but a
folding knife is even better. If you have a stainless steel water
bottle, bring that; it can be an amazing weapon if you know how to use
it (it can easily break the bones in the back of someone's hand).
- Look through the window and door glass as you approach. Pause before
opening the door, and listen.
- Open the door, and pause again. Yes, I do this every time.
- Scan the room as you enter.
- Not because of Covid, but for tactical reasons, keep distance
between you and everybody else. A nervous robber will shoot the closest
person. If that's not you, then you can take out the robber if you
decide to do so.
- Stand tall and own the space you occupy. This, along with your
leather shoes, might signal "cop" to a prospective robber. It will
intimidate them, in any case. I believe I actually prevented a bank
robbery (pre-Covid) this way. The suspicious-looking man and I locked
eyes, then he left. When I got to the counter, the teller later told me
the guy creeped her out from the moment he walked in the door. I said,
"Because he hung back as if waiting for everyone to leave instead of
getting in line?" She said, "No, he was wearing a bulky coat, I couldn't
see his hands, and it is almost 80 degrees outside"
- Conduct your business with a minimum of chit chat. The teller has to
focus to correctly conduct the transaction, but also should be trained
to observe the lobby so do not distract.
- Scan the room as you leave, and scan ahead of you as you go out the
If the "unthinkable" happens and the bank is robbed while you are inside
(much more likely these days because of Fauci's anti-science mask rule),
stay calm. It's only the bank's money and they will get it back. Let this
robbery pass. Really, a person has to be stupid to rob a bank. But Joe Biden
is stupid and he's President. Go figure.
If it's only one robber and you really want to take him out, move while
he's distracted at the counter. Don't move directly at him, he'll spot you
in his peripheral vision. Move behind him and then directly at him.
Remember, this guy's heart is pumping and his anxiety is high. You need to
control that weapon, so step alongside him, reach forward, and grab his hand
across the fingers. Squeeze as hard as you can while twisting. The cracking
sound you hear will be his trigger finger breaking. He will struggle and try to
pull away, kick one of his legs and push him down. Don't let go of his
crippled hand, keep squeezing, the pain will help you control him. Then use
your free hand to punch him in the neck until he passes out. This should
take only 3 or 4 punches for a person of average ability. If you are a
particularly good puncher, once is enough. When I say punch, I
mean a hard punch not a pushing movement. Once he's out, kick the pistol
away from him and then go stand on it until the police arrive. Picking it up
will get your prints on it while also making you an instant target when the
For multiple robbers, you cannot
take them all out without somebody other than them getting hurt. You simply
cannot control that many weapons at once. And, thanks to the "gun free"
nature of banks there are no armed citizens in there to assist you or to protect everyone.
This is why it is important to scan on your way in. If you see more than one
suspicious-looking person, don't enter.
What about calling the cops on your smart phone so they can save
everybody? First, they are already on their way. Don't be
distracted by your phone. I never carry mine into a bank, of all places. Second,
there's a reason we say, "When seconds count, the cops are only minutes
away." You have to protect yourself. With masked faces no longer signaling
trouble, that job has become more difficult. Situational awareness is your
first line of defense. Scan an area before entering it. If you see danger,
you can always call the cops and wait a few minutes for them to arrive and
deal with it.
Just to be clear, I am not saying the police are inept or cowardly, and
I'm not making any doughnut jokes or other disparaging remarks. It's just
basic physics. They cannot be everywhere at once. If you're lucky, there's
an officer nearby who can respond.
Sometimes, the police are already there. As in the case of a gun shop,
where a moron walked past two police cars parked in front of the store and
then entered and tried to rob the place. You can't count on this kind of
thing, so be vigilant and be prepared.

Low carb diets were popularized in the 1970s, paving the way for dietary
disasters such as the Atkins diet. People lost both lean weight and muscle
on these diets, so weighed less and looked slimmer. The diets appeared to
work as advertised. But they didn't. They had adverse health effects.|
Carbs are not bad. In fact, you need them to have energy for the kinds of
workouts that stimulate the adaptive response. The problem is junk carbs,
such as corn syrup, corn solids, wheat, beer, and various processed sugars.
Eliminate these, and you will probably stop accumulating body fat.
Popcorn (a hard kernel, low sugar corn that is not at all like sweet corn
from an endocrine effect viewpoint) has long been a staple item among
bodybuilders, primarily because we can pop it in
coconut oil and/or organic butter and have a crunchy way to get some
good fats along with fiber. Douse it in hot sauce, and you get a thermogenic
effect. Yet some people won't eat popcorn "because of the carbs". This is
nonsense, because a typical serving of popcorn (4 to 5 cups) is only 30
grams of carbs and about 120 calories. Remember the grapefruit diet? A
medium grapefruit has about 26 grams of carbs and some people lost over 100
lbs on that diet! Which means if you clocked in at 300lbs and went on a
"popcorn diet" you would probably lose 100 lbs within a year. That's because
you'd be replacing unhealthy processed food with healthy fats and fiber.
Don't focus on restricting your carbs. Focus on eating nutrient-dense
foods. Here are some nutrient-dense foods that carbophobes would have a
- Fruit. In a typical day, I eat 4 to 5 pieces of fruit. Fruit is
loaded with nutrients and anticancer compounds, plus it provides you
with fiber and water. A fruit-free diet is a bad diet.
- Rice. Another bodybuilder staple, whole-grain rice is loaded with B
vitamins, fiber, and other nutrients.
- Root vegetables. Lee Haney won the Mr. Olympia eight times. He is a
huge fan of sweet potatoes. I was eating them all the way up to, and on
the day of, the photoshoot for the photos you see above. Root vegetables
are starchy, yes. But they do not make you fat. The same goes for beets,
which I eat daily (both root and greens). Dr. Rick Cohen, whom I have
mentioned previously, is a big proponent of beets. If you do not like
eating beets, then try Cohen's
- Beans. I consider these a protein, but most bodybuilders classify
them as a carb. Beans (legumes) are loaded with magnesium, zinc, and
many other nutrients. I have beans every day.
Someone who is making the mistake of being on the Paleo diet doesn't eat
beans, rice, or root vegetables because they have this irrational idea that
only food you can hunt or gather is safe to eat. That belief has no basis in
anything other than the fact that people who lived "in paleo times" (and
whose life spans were about 28 years) did not have these foods available. As
I say, irrational. A nice way of saying idiotic.
Beware of sugary supplements! I have seen people on the Keto diet
(another stupid diet that destroys the health of those who stay on it) suck
down a Red Bull, apparently not realizing it's 50% refined sugar. Then there
are "preworkout supplements" which typically are loaded with sugar but
nothing that improves your workout, "postworkout supplements" which often
contain huge amounts of sugar, various capsules where the capsule itself is
a sugar gelatin, and "protein" bars which are loaded with multiple kinds of
sugar. Even basic supplements such as L-Glutamine, which has now become very
expensive, are often "cut" with that other white powder (Cell Tech makes
such a product, shame on them).
Consuming anything sugary before or after your workout guarantees you
will not get the adaptive response that you just worked out to get, because
you will get an insulin response and insulin depresses testosterone. But you
could eat a whole basket of apples or scarf down a large sweet potato with
zero effect on your testosterone because those whole foods do not trigger an
insulin response. Neither does oil-popped popcorn.
Most bodybuilders fret about their "macros", carefully weighing so many "carbs",
so many "proteins", and so many "fats" to get the "ideal" proportions. This
is all nonsense. For one thing, no whole food is purely a carb, protein, or
fat. For another, nobody has any evidence showing that any particular ratio
is ideal for any particular person or even for an "average" person or even
for a "world class athlete". This whole macro thing is a gimmick to sell the
illusion of expertise. But it can work for many people, because they are so
far out of whack. Someone who eats almost entirely out of boxes and cans is
eating mostly wheat, corn, processed sugar, and rancid fats. When this
person has to switch to whole foods to be able to count macros, suddenly the
fat drops off and the muscle goes on. But it's due to the replacement of
highly processed foods with whole foods, not due to fussing over ratios of
If you've been thinking about "managing your micros", ditch that idea and
make a point of eating a variety of whole foods.
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.
Behavior observation indicates Joe Biden's IQ is in the moron range (51 to 70).
But it is hard to penetrate the veil on that, because he has a cadre of helpers
and he's got that earpiece. It is possible his IQ is in the idiot range (0 to

The views expressed in this e-newsletter are generally not shared by socialists or

and have not bothered to learn the basics of how life works. They cannot do
basic math, cannot apply logic, and cannot be bothered to learn the basic facts
relevant to any topic that they are passionate about.

Where sources are not given, they are readily available to anyone who makes the effort.
Mark provides information from either research or his own areas of established expertise. Sometimes, what appears to be a personal opinion is the only possibility when applying sound logic--reason it out before judging! (That said, some personal opinions do appear on occasion).
Personal note from Mark: I value each and every one of you, and I hope that shows in the diligent effort I put into writing this e-newsletter.
