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 wrote a letter to a veterinarian's office about their mask requirement. I summarized how this superstition-based practice is not from the science (.070 sized particles zip right through .300 size apertures, and we know there's no aerosol because cars do not have windshield wipers on the inside). I also pointed out how it actually spreads disease and if their concern is public health, then they will ban the wearing of masks on their premises. While they did not ban this superstitious, disease-spreading practice they did drop the requirement.
  2. Mask-wearers have tried to shame sane people by giving us panic-stricken looks, giving us an exaggeratedly wide berth, and refusing to speak to us even if we just say hello. I got sick of this antisocial, "virtue signaling" idiocy now shame them right back. I lock eyes with them when they do the panic thing and look at them like they are nuts (they are), deliberately invade their space (giving them less than a foot instead of the customary 2 to 3 feet), and make several attempts to engage them in conversation. If they do talk to me, I ask them something like, "Does your car have windshield wipers on the inside or the outside? I'm just curious, because you appear to believe the aerosol lie."
  3. I now like to tell people that I am wearing my "anti-Covid socks". They are as effective as the masks, the difference being they don't make me look stupid.
  4. Over 1,200 people died during the Pfizer "vaccine" trials. No wonder they wanted the records sealed for 75 years! Read about it here: If you would like a PDF of the Pfizer test results that they wanted locked up for 75 years, write to me and I will send it to you.
  5. It's interesting that Pfizer got government immunity from liability for producing a product that lowers the victim's immunity and in many cases renders them dead. Only in Amerika, comrades....

Other News

  1. Biden's handlers did not go forward with "Michelle" as the "black woman" appointed to the SCOTUS even though appointing "Michelle" had been talked about a lot. I wish they had done that, because it would have led to shattering the lie that "Michelle" is a woman, and that would have done huge damage to the Left. But the Soros folks saw this trap and stepped around it. Very astute of them. You have to wonder why the masses have not connected these huge dots. The selection of Ketanji, who was obscure and unqualified, instead of "Michelle", is a tacit admission that "Michelle" is a man. The Soros folks also know that the masses don't think even one move ahead in the chess game of life. So the fraud continues.
  2. The socialists were defeated in their effort to disqualify Marjorie Taylor Greene from running for reelection. They accused her of being part of "the January 6 insurrection" which is moronspeak for unarmed people getting a little rowdy after being let into the Capitol Building. According to the libtards, tossing Molotov cocktails into occupied buildings and shooting police officers sitting in their squad cars is "peaceful protesting" but exercising your First Amendment rights in a non-violent manner is "insurrection".
  3. The US Navy has stepped forward to protect our nation from its enemies. This is a welcome change. What exactly are they doing? They've removed idiotic "woke" books from the required reading list. Read more about it, here:

3. Brainpower tip


The phrase "social justice warrior" appears frequently. It's a title bestowed upon people who whine about imaginary social problems, and abuse others through various passive-aggressive behaviors. To call them warriors is absurd. To call them obnoxious is about right.

These people try to bully others into misusing perfectly good pronouns, as if such misuse accomplishes anything positive. It's "a thing" with them right now. They also whine that they don't have the same rights as "others" but when pressed they cannot name whatever rights they are talking about.

Yet on actual social issues, they are silent. Here are some issues that come to mind:

  • Engaging in extreme corruption to deny Americans elections that are fair and honest. It's a huge social issue that a mentally retarded pedophile, who was the lone voice objecting to taking out Osama Bin Laden in the Pakistan raid, was foisted upon us instead of the person who legitimately won the election.

  • Engaging in blatantly racist and sexist hiring practices to nominate, and then approve, a Supreme Court Justice.

  • Telling people there is something wrong with them because they are "white".

  • Teaching targeted second graders that they have the wrong private parts, and then going after their parents for objecting to this child abuse.

  • Stacey Abrams is at large (in more ways than one!).

  • Disney has gone insane with wokeism, even making a leftwing nutjob propaganda tool out of Star Trek.

  • Adherents to the mask religion use passive aggressive behavior to abuse sane people, as if we are the ones doing something wrong.

  • Those who serve in the military are being ordered, against the law, to subject themselves to the immunity-reducing jab.

  • The unarmed protestors who trespassed on Queen Nancy's Capitol Building are being called "insurrectionists" and being held in prison while the vicious murderers from the previous summer's actual insurrection have never been arrested. Maxine Walters publicly praised those murderers and encouraged them to keep on killing, yet she is still in office.

Where are the "social warriors" in these contexts? Why are they not speaking out on actual social problems? The answer is they don't care about social justice, they care only about being a mindless member of a group that gives them the approval they are seeking.

The approval-seeking motivation is a ticket on the stupidity train, as we can see from the results.

A much better approach is to decide what your personal standards are and realistically what the standards should be for the society in which you live. Rather than seek the approval of others by conforming to whatever demands they are making or whatever script you are supposed to follow, seek excellence in what you do. You may not get the approval of some people, but you will have the inner satisfaction of meeting your own standards. And quality people will notice. Personal excellence is the expression of the warrior ethos.

The standards for society are trickier to deal with. Simply pursuing your own personal excellence is a powerful strategy, because you set an example. I do not like it that it's somehow normal now to dress like a slob no matter where you go. This is why I usually wear leather shoes and they are always polished; other clothing matches that standard. I do not agree with the left that bullying, hatred, and intolerance are the best ways to influence people. Nor do I agree with them that society must be a particular way to the smallest detail, and it should all be based on fiction. There's a certain amount of "live and let live" that is part of successfully and peacefully living in society. Else, you are just not happy.

4. Finance tip

My dad used to say, "You have to keep your overhead low." This is how you avoid financial stress. Some ways I keep overhead low:
  • Own a fuel-efficient car. Mine is a 5-speed, manual transmission Toyota Camry 4 cyl. A few times, I calculated the MPG on a 400+ mile trip. I got between 37 and 39 MPG.
  • Do my own oil changes, tire rotations, filter changes, etc. Anybody can change their own cabin air filter and engine air filter; better yet, get a K&N Permanent version and simply clean it as recommended.
  • Don't touch the paint on your car with bare fingers.
  • Don't ride your brakes. I drive a stick, so can downshift instead of using the brakes to slow as a stop is coming up.
  • Don't run the heat unnecessarily. A sweater and a pair of slippers can make 65 degrees feel like 70 degrees.
  • Don't run the AC unnecessarily. Ceiling fans work wonders, as do little table fans. I even have a small fan that sits atop my desktop tower.
  • Cook some things outside, when it's really hot. Many people grill, others use hot plates and electric fryers. I have an inductive stovetop and a multi-cooker. This really cuts the AC bill while increasing comfort.
  • Time baking to the cool part of the morning on a day that is the coolest of the week. Using fans, I exhaust all the hot air from baking while it is still fairly cool outside.
  • Fix things to get extended use out of them, rather than replace them. It's amazing what you can fix, if you take the time to acquire the skills and the tools. The savings are huge. Sewing, gluing, sanding, and painting/staining/finishing are basic skills that can save you hundreds of dollars a year.
  • Take care of things. If a towel is wet, hang it to dry. Wash bedding weekly. Use the correct detergents in the correct amounts. Don't use metal utensils in plastic food storage containers. Use a cutting board, not your counter top.
  • Use rags, not paper towels. You can cut rags from old T-shirts, old bedding, and old slacks. Wring out sponges and dry them.
  • Clean any spill immediately. Even blood comes right out of carpet if you catch it in time; the cat who owns me slaughtered a bunny in the bedroom, and my quick response with baking soda and vinegar got all the blood up.
  • Buy quality items. This way, you aren't always replacing things. High-end bedding that lasts you 25 or 30 years is much better than low-end bedding that lasts you only a few years. High quality doesn't necessarily mean high cost. For example, I bought a high quality refrigerator but skipped on features like an in-door icemaker. I had that refrigerator for 25 years before giving it to a neighbor and buying another high quality refrigerator to replace it with. I bought them both on sale, of course.
  • Avoid buying things you don't really need, even if it seems they would make life nicer. What typically happens, is they fall into disuse before long and you have more clutter.
  • Get rid of things you no longer use and are unlikely to ever use. Else, you are paying for storage space instead of living space.
  • Repurpose things. Resealable coffee tubs are the poster child for this. They have so many uses! If you ever buy washed greens in the plastic tubs, use the tubs as bathroom organizers instead of having stuff strewn on the sink counter or shoved into drawers.

Trade "secrets" and tips with another person or two. I am lucky, because my sister also heard "You have to keep your overhead low" and we talk about painless ways to save money, reduce financial obligations, and get more bang for the buck. For example, she discussed this list with me and said, "Buy what's appropriate".  This is a principle, not a method. It covers a lot of ground.

Don't try to live within YOUR means. Live within the means of someone who makes 15 to 25% less than you do, and put the difference into mutual funds. People who try to live within their means overestimate their means and underestimate their costs.

5. Security tip

The FBI recently issued an alert for those who use digital payment applications (apps).

One way scammers separate people from their money is they send a text message that appears to be a bank fraud alert. It asks if the customer initiated an instant money transfer through a digital payment app. Once the target responds to the fake alert, the scammer then calls from a number with a Caller ID similar to the financial institution's name. Under the pretext of reversing the fake money transfer, the scammer swindles the target into sending payment to the scammer's bank account.

Banks don't text you about Instant Payments. If it seems your bank does contact you, get the extension of the person contacting you and call back through the bank's switchboard. Better yet, don't use payment apps.

I eat at least one sweet potato each day.Many people pooh-pooh the idea of eating any kind of potato, including any of the many varieties of sweet potato. They say, "It's the carbs". Somehow, they have allowed themselves to be convinced that carbohydrates are bad. Often, this comes from works of fiction penned by the advocates of idiotic diets such as Atkins, Keto, and Paleo.

The truth is you need carbohydrates, and plenty of them, for good brain function, good body composition, and general health. All serious athletes are serious about getting enough carbohydrates. Sweet potatoes not only give you this valuable form on energy, they are nutrition power houses. And they taste great! You can make them in many different ways, and you can even bake with sweet potato flour. Look at the detail in my lats in the photo above. That's while eating sweet potatoes every day!

8-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney is big on sweet potatoes. In fact, it was his advice that got me started eating them daily instead of just occasionally. Nobody wins Mr. Olympia once, much less eight times, by avoiding carbs. Here's an article that explains why eating sweet potatoes is a good idea:

People who get on the "no carbs" or "low carbs" bandwagon are usually "trying to lose weight" (by which they mean reduce how much body fat they carry). But (portion size being reasonable), you simply do not get fat if your carbs are in the form of root vegetables (beets, carrots, potatoes, etc.), fruits (a banana has something like 100 calories and an apple about 60), beans (not really a "carb" but called that anyhow), rice, whole oats, or popcorn (popped in coconut oil and/or organic butter), peppers, and greens. You need those carbs if you train. With the right intake of carbs, you can push through an intense workout or a high volume series of intense sets to stimulate the adaptive response that puts you into fat-burning, muscle-building mode for days.

The real culprits are the wheat, corn, soy, or products derived thereof. It has been many years since I have consumed any wheat, corn, soy, or products derived thereof. They are endocrine modifiers, and they take your system in the opposite direction of the adaptive response. The wheat and corn are carbs, and, yes, cutting back on them will improve your body composition. But this does not mean all carbs are bad. It's really just THOSE carbs and the products made from them that are bad.

But wait, the news about THOSE carbs gets worse. In the USA, they are nearly always GMO products. GMO in itself is not bad, it's what's done with these particular grains that makes GMO super-bad for you. Here's an article explaining a bit about the powerful neurotoxin that is used to produce these GMO foods:

You need to eliminate from your diet wheat, corn, and soy--whether GMO or not. You also need to eliminate from your diet meat from animals fed this stuff (for example, all beef from any of the three major packing houses). Those animals are made ill by putting their bodies on a diet they are not built for. They get metabolic syndrome and quickly pack on the fat; you eat their meat, getting the fattening hormone mix created in their bodies due to the bad diet.

So enjoy your carbs, especially those wonderful sweet potatoes!


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

Brainless Biden violated federal labor laws by hiring someone based on her race. See: Ketanji's nomination is unlawful.

8. Thought for the Day

Worry is interest paid in advance for a debt you may never owe. Instead of worrying, take care of things in a thoughtful manner and monitor the progress.

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.
