1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good
Some facts and reality you won't get from libtards or their lamestream
The Covid Scam (aka, the Scamdemic)
- I've been using a kind of shorthand for referring to the dust masks that
have been mandated as a Covid protection, calling them "K95" instead of N95
or KN95. One reader glommed onto that oddity
and concluded nothing I said about these is correct. So let me be clear.
Unless you have mask that filters out 100% of virus-sized particles, there
is no mask that stops Covid. There's no dust mask anywhere close to having
As a matter of intellectual honesty, never use a minor detail as an excuse
to stay within your own echo chamber. Focus on the main point and the
evidence behind it. Those who try to justify stupidity invariably do so
through stupid and dishonest means. Finding the truth involves using your
noggin in an honest way.
- Wearing a mask made of cloth or any other fabric to stop Covid is like
erecting a picket fence to stop mosquitoes. Yet, so-called "experts" keep
repeating the fiction that it works. And for obvious reasons, they cannot
provide a single scrap of evidence to support their claim. If these same
people ran the Department of Defense, all of our submarines would be
equipped with screen doors to keep the water out.
- The mask mandaters, confronted with the fact that the pores in the mask
are several times large than the Covid virus, now claim the masks stop an
aerosol of saliva that contains the virus. They still have not explained
why, if that is so, cars are not built with windshield wipers on the inside.
Nor can they explain why, if the virus is so well contained in people's
saliva, the test uses a nose swab instead of a saliva sample. Or why we call
can't just spit it out to protect ourselves.
- You probably already know that on 18 April, a federal judge struck down
Brainless Biden's useless, illegal, superstitious, math-defying mask mandate
for air travel. Hooray! Formal acknowledgement that 300 is bigger than 70 is
a step away from the abject stupidity inflicted by the Biden administration.
It seems that the heads of the major airlines not only can do second grade
math but have also determined no jet or passenger car comes equipped with
windshield wipers on the inside (ergo, the "saliva aerosol" rationale simply
- Here's a very good article on the "vaccine" scam:
- Effective 15 May, Denmark is ceasing all promotion of the
immunity-reducing jab. That's the experimental gene therapy that is
hypermarketed as somehow being a vaccine against Covid. It appears that
Denmark does not want to continue pursuing a population reduction target, at
least not under the false pretenses that the population reducing jab is a
"health" measure. Perhaps other countries will follow suit soon.
It dawned on me recently that there is no other kind of socialist, they are all stupid else they
would not be socialists. So providing examples of their astonishing stupidity is
redundant. Thus, nothing to list here. If I decided to list examples of their
bullying, intolerance, duplicity, and general insanity I would not have space
for even .01%. So not going there, either.
- "An organization called True The Vote has been investigating since 2020
the illegal ballot harvesting operations that took place across six
different states during the presidential election. And using their
methodology of tracing cell phone ping data surrounding drop boxes,
reviewing millions of minutes of surveillance footage, and interviewing the
actual ballot harvesters themselves, they were able to determine that
approximately 4.8 million ballots were likely submitted through the illegal
use of ballot drop boxes." -- Epoch Times Special Report, 22 APR 2022.
More findings are here:
- An opinion on why the coup succeeded:
Before speaking, President Trump often does not use his power to think. He
is impulsive, rather than reflective, when deciding what to say.
This is his greatest weakness. It is what made many people ignore his
accomplishments. He also says things he has thought about, but not with
intellectual rigor. For example, he said trade wars are easy to win.
Launching a trade war is a "cut off your nose to spite your face" action and
you lose as soon as you launch. Trade wars, in fact, are impossible to win.
To conduct a trade war, you penalize your own people. Using a military
analogy, let's say we wanted to win a war against Canada. If we conducted
that by shooting our own troops, we could not possibly win. All Canada would
do is just wait for us to run out of troops to shoot and declare "victory".
Nothing changes, we just have a lot of dead troops.
Basically, he lacks a skill set that comes with maturing as a teenager. Most
notably missing in that skill set is impulse control. His unawareness of this and his consequent blunders of form
(rather than function) are what made the coup possible. The socialists saw
during the "debate" with "Earpiece Biden" that a Trump loss would be
plausible, so they proceeded to overturn the election via fraud. And now we
are all paying a terrible price.
- Dinesh D'Souza has produced his own evidentiary documentary exposing how
the 2020 Presidential election was stolen. Read more about it here:
- With Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter, the Alternate Reality Bullies have
lost one of their primary weapons. It could even be used as a force for
good, now. But don't get too giddy, yet. Musk, after all, is in the business of
selling coal-powered cars that require huge amounts of lithium and cobalt.
And he's become the world's richest man by pushing these environmentally
damaging products. Perhaps he will develop a car that runs on hydrogen, thus
eliminating the coal, lithium, and cobalt. But it's still a fossil fuel
intensive thing to produce the fuel cells and of course the steel, plastic,
and other materials are carbon-intensive to produce.
- Libtarded celebrities are threatening to leave Twitter if Musk doesn't
let it continue to be a tool of hatred, intolerance, and propaganda spewing.
If they leave that would certainly improve Twitter, so good riddance. Now if
only they would leave North America!
- There is speculation that there aren't enough Republicans in the
Republican Party to do what needs doing when Congress convenes after the
November elections. After all, they failed to repeal the Unaffordable Care
Act. Yes, but Paul Ryan was Speaker then and he was a disaster in many ways.
So you can't use the failure to repeal the UCA as a benchmark.
You can use the recent confirmation of an unqualified judge to the Supreme
Court thanks to RINOs in the Republican Party. Not only is she unqualified,
the hiring practices in that farce violate EEOC regulations. What difference
does it make if Biden says he'll nominate only a white male or only a black
female? Either way, it's racist and sexist. And illegal. On top of that,
she's a radical whose rulings show very poor judgment. And still, some
Senate Republicans backed her. That is not a good omen for what may happen
in regard to removing Brainless and Kamala from office. Unless we sane
people pressure nominal Republicans to act like Republicans (and do the same
with Democrats, who should all be standing against Brainless and Kamala), an
election "win" is meaningless.
- You've probably heard Florida recently passed legislation that puts real
teeth into election reform. Just as California leads other states into
harmful, idiotic policies, Florida has a history of being the first to pass
legislation that does massive good (right to carry laws come to mind). If
other states soon follow, the USA will have honest, fair elections before
the end of this decade. That would be a welcome change from the fake
elections we have now. Read about the new Florida law here:
- Early this month, Democrat Antonio Delgado became the 33rd House
Democrat to "retire" from the House. That's a very big number of incumbents
to say they are done with Congress. Unfortunately, most of the people
stepping down actually are Democrats. And that shifts even more control of
this abysmal party to the socialists.
- A UPS Store owner saved a 90+ year old man from being scammed out of
thousands of dollars. In this age of "woke" militants, it's good to see
there are good people who actually do good for others instead of doing harm
and pretending it's good. Read the full story here:

3. Brainpower tip
It's now "a thing" to ignore the relevant and focus on the
irrelevant, miss the big picture while putting undue emphasis on a small detail,
and reaching conclusions before determining what really matters.
This way of perceiving the world has its advantages, such
You spare yourself the effort of thinking.
You can maintain tribe approval, if your tribe is one
that has its own echo chamber and reality-averse narrative.
You can "win" an argument with someone whose major
point is correct, but they erred in some detail such as spelling "Muslim" as
"Mulsin". It's obviously a typo, it doesn't mean they got their facts wrong.
For many people, these "advantages" are good enough. For
people who want to be smart, knowledgeable, and honest, these "advantages" hold
One philosophy is that you have to "be right". So you
defend the position of your tribe no matter how indefensible it is. An
example is people who believe they are being good citizens by wearing masks
to stop Covid. The problem is the pores in the material are huge compared to
the virus and so masks are utterly useless toward that end.
Another philosophy is that you are a learner, and thus
you are open to new information even if it conflicts with existing ideas and
even if "experts" and other judgmental people heap scorn on you instead of
giving you their approval.
Which of the two philosophies is better? That depends on
how much you value intelligence and what kind of people you associate with. If
you value intelligence but the people you associate with abuse you for doing so,
then the obvious solution is to associate less with such people and more with
Does this mean you should associate only with people who
agree with you? Not at all. That just puts you into an echo chamber. Diversity
of views is what you really want. If someone disagrees with you and gives a
rational explanation, it could mean your view is wrong. Or it could just mean
your view is different. If you have a learner's attitude, you will be able
to extract what is good, helpful, useful, etc., into your own knowledge base and
viewpoints. That is a great way to boost brainpower.
4. Finance tip
Here are some ways people try to make money on the side:|
- Holding a yard sale or garage sale, converting clutter to cash. This
ties you up for a whole day, lets strangers case your place, and probably
forces you to work for less than minimum wage.
- Buying at flea markets and retail sales, then reselling on eBay or
Amazon. You'd better have a lot of space to store inventory and shipping
supplies. This is a very bad waste of your time, too, if you had intended to
make money at it.
- Renting a room. This can become very complicated, very fast. Most people
who do this don't make enough on it to cover the costs involved. You can
make extra money this way, but you need a really good renter who will be a
- Driving for Uber or doing other time-consuming gig economy menial tasks
using your own property or equipment.
- Doing handyman projects. So, you're going to do this unlicensed and
uninsured? You hope to get work by underpricing the pros? This kind of thing
needs to be done as a full-fledged business, though not necessarily
- Day trading, casino gambling. pool hall hustling, or other non-value
add, high-risk, luck-based gigs. These are often the path to crushing debt.
- Doing the MLM thing with Amway, Shaklee, etc. Most people who get into
one of these end up with a bedroom full of products that they can't sell.
These companies typically have good products, but the products are grossly
overpriced to permit paying all the levels of people involved.
What is the common denominator in all of these ventures? They hold the allure
of easy riches or at least easy, instant cash. The all have hidden costs. And
it's those costs that nail you. Before going forward with a side gig, take the
time to determine what all the costs are. What inputs are needed to do this?
What about wear and tear on my home (in the case of renting) or my car (in the
case of being an Uber driver)?
You most definitely can make money with a side gig. But most people lose
money on side gigs, because they don't think through how to make it profitable.
5. Security tip
Many items you receive in the mail contain information that can help form a
mosaic for identity theft. Always shred these items, rather than put them
into the recycle.|
Bits of information include your telephone number, name
and address together, political or religious affiliation, and names of
children or pets.
Types of items include credit offers (often a scam in itself, but a
credit offer may include a plastic "credit card" that can actually open a
line of credit), surveys, and contests.
While it's not likely someone is
rummaging through your recycle bin, this does happen. It happens even to
people who aren't particularly wealthy. With enough information, a crook can
run up far more debt against you than you could ever pay off.

If there's a magic bullet to fitness, it has to be squatting. The variations
of the squat are in the dozens, if not more. You can do squats with or
without equipment. The equipment can range from a single dumbbell weight to
a weighted barbell and squat rack. I will refer to all the variations as
"squats", going forward. If you don't know (and don't currently use) at
least four types of squat, it would be a good use of your time to do a Bing
search for "types of squats" or maybe just type into the YouTube search box
terms like weighted squats, barbell squats, dumbbell squats, lunges, sissy
squats, body weight squats, and one-legged squats.|
Benefits of squats
- More than any other exercise, squats stimulate the adaptive
- Squats strengthen the posterior chain. The front squat, which puts a
huge load on the glutes and hamstrings, is often called "the mother of
all exercises". Those posterior muscles are where the power comes from
for most sports. Neglect of them causes muscle imbalance, ultimately
resulting in a premature loss of mobility.
- A good combination of different types of squats correctly performed
will strengthen all of the bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles
involved in having good posture.
- A properly done squats workout builds the heart and lungs far better
than any amount of low-intensity cardio (e.g., treadmill, walking,
distance running, etc.).
- You improve your balance dramatically over that of a non-squatter.
If you have a squats program that you stick to, you are never going to
say, "Help! I've fallen and can't get up."
- Squats can make you feel not so good later on, once the massive dose
of endorphins wears off. But that endorphin dose is very helpful to your
mental health. Longer term, the serotonin elevation that results from
having a squats-built body is also very helpful to your mental health.
- There is no more effective way to have a great-looking booty.
Squatting for best results
- Always go deep. Take the range of motion as far as you can.
- Stop if there's pain, but push through the difficulty. When you push
to the limit, that's what triggers the adaptive response.
- Adjust reps, rest periods, and/or weight to keep yourself in the
"difficult but doable" zone.
- Know how to correctly perform a given squat. Form is more important
than the weight or the number of reps. With most squats, you do not let
your knee come past your toe, for example.
- If you do back squats, place the bar across your upper back not
against your neck. Even better, do other types of squats and skip the
- If you have the ability to recover from weekly leg day sessions that
incorporate squats, then do them weekly. Some people (myself included)
have two leg day routines that alternate. One is very rigorous with four
types of squats, the other is a light version with only one type of
- Focus on poor leverage exercises rather than those that let you load
up more weight. The less weight you have to use to stay in the
difficulty zone, the less wear and tear there is on joints and tendons.
- Never miss your workout. Keep the momentum going. If you just cannot
do it on the scheduled day, do it the day before or the day after.
A note on the adaptive response. Among other things, that means
testosterone sharply rises. Only when testosterone is present does your body
deposit calcium in the bones; that is one reason that women, who have
desperately little testosterone to begin with, should be squatting (and no,
ladies, you won't produce male levels of this hormone). The more often and
intensely you elevate testosterone, the stronger your bones become. Every
muscle in the body improves when testosterone is elevated, which is why
serious athletes do a split routine instead of a full body workout.
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.
So-called electric cars are far more polluting than their internal combustion
counterparts. Libtards cherry pick the pollutants, pretending that only tailpipe
ones count. If a libtard had to work in a coal mine or live near a lithium mine,
perhaps that little light bulb in their dimwit head would come one.|
