1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

Some facts and reality you won't get from libtards or their lamestream media....

The Covid Scam (aka, the Scamdemic)

  1. 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 that ability.

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 doesn't work).
  5. Here's a very good article on the "vaccine" scam:
  6. 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.

Stupid Socialists

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.

The Coup

  1. "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:  
  2. 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 have to 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.

  3. Dinesh D'Souza has produced his own evidentiary documentary exposing how the 2020 Presidential election was stolen. Read more about it here:

Other News

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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:
  5. 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.
  6. 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 as:

  • 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 little appeal.

  • 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 open-minded people.

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 responsible housemate.
  • 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 full-time.
  • 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 response.
  • 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 back squat.
  • 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 squat.
  • 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.


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

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.

8. Thought for the Day

Nobody plans to fail, they just fail to plan. What plans do you have?

The purpose of this publication is to inform and empower its readers (and save you money!). The views expressed in this e-newsletter are generally not shared by socialists or other brainwashed individuals. That's because those fools live in an alternate reality 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.

Except where noted, this e-newsletter is entirely the work of Mark Lamendola. Anything presented as fact can be independently verified. 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. It is an act of service, almost no money is generated for me through this effort. Thank you for being a faithful reader. Please pass this newsletter along to others.
