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. Must watch:
  2. Many people are still wearing masks due to Covid. In some cases, it's because their employer mandates it unless they have submitted to the immunity-reduction jab. In other cases, they are just stupid.
  3. Many doctors are telling pregnant women to "take the Covid vaccine". Aside from the fact the jab isn't a vaccine, Pfizer knew this poison was harmful to babies and pregnant women should not take it. This information has emerged from the documents that the FDA wanted sealed for 75 years: See:
  4. These photos tell a different story from the lies told by the CDC:
  5. Quacktor Fauci tested positive for Covid. Even the Communist News Network reported this! So much for the ersatz "vaccines", the wearing of masks, and the other stupid things he has been trying to mandate.

Other News

  1. The governor of Ohio signed a student protection bill, something Nutcase Nancy would call a "gun violence" bill. In Ohio, teachers are now allowed to use the proper equipment to protect kids from violent assault. Why any state would mandate making kids vulnerable by not allowing this is anyone's guess. They hate kids? They are just stupid? They love violent criminals? Take your pick. In Ohio now, any whacko wanting to do violent harm to school kids is unlikely to find a "fish in a barrel" situation.

    It's interesting to note that in the free states, where children are not subjected to criminal protection laws, the population of non-socialist voters will grow. In the communist countries on our western border (California, Oregon, etc.) and eastern border (New York, New Jersey, etc.), the population control measure known as "disarming teachers" will reduce the number of libtards.
  2. Black Lives Manipulated suffered yet another setback in its war against "black" people and people in general. A federal judge ruled that Home Depot is correct in not allowing workers to spread BLM's message of hatred, intolerance, racism, and violence by wearing BLM gear while on the job. Libtards might idiotically claim this violates free speech, deliberately misreading the First Amendment to apply to the private sector instead of the government. The reality is Home Depot's policy is already protected by hate speech laws. The vast majority of the BLM zombie population consists of irresponsible young people with no life experience, no education, and no career. By contrast, the Home Depot customer base consists of responsible home owners. You can see why Home Depot wanted to protect its customers from this particular brand of hate speech.
  3. Go here, then page down to watch the video:
    Notice the freak show? These few people in San Francisco are the ones who keep returning Nutcase to power. That is, a couple hundred (at most) very outspoken men with severe mental problems control the House of Representatives through one hyper-ambitious psychopath. They claim any opposition to them is anti-gay bigotry, a claim which necessarily asserts that all gay people are extreme misfits with severe mental problems--so who is the bigot?

    Nutcase talks about "our democracy" but how is it a democracy when a country of 330 million people is run mostly by an insane woman put into power by less than 0.00001% of the population?

    This situation is serious. A solution would be nice. It seems the only solution to this problem is to ensure a red wave this November so when those mentally ill men yet again return Pelosi to Congress, the old bat at least will not be Speaker. That requires election reform and it also requires each of us sentient people to speak with disinformed voters to help them "get it". At this point, even Democrats should generally vote a straight Republican ticket just to save their own party (not to mention this country).

3. Brainpower tip


The socialists, libtards, wokeheads, "social justice warriors" and various other numbskulls use a particular tactic repeatedly. They misuse words and then attack those who do not do the same. This is a direct assault on not just the ability to communicate, but on the ability to think. It is a path to being not just inarticulate, but stupid.

When someone misuses a word, don't do the "polite" thing and "know what they mean". Call them out on this behavior. The same applies to phrases. People who do this are engaged in bullying. And bullying does not deserve a polite response. It deserves an assertive one. Assertiveness is the only effective response to bullying. Notice, I did not say offensiveness. There is a difference between saying, "Speak English, you moron" and, "When you misuse English that way, it's a form of bullying. I'm asking you to stop trying to bully me."

Bullying via this method has become the default mode by which the insane try to control the sane. Nutcase Nancy, for example, is spewing her usual nonsense about "gun violence". By using this phrase, she is associating guns with violence. This is dishonest in the extreme, having no relationship with reality. Yes, some mentally disturbed people and some criminals do use guns to hurt others. But in the vast majority of cases where a gun is, shall we say, in a person's hand, there is no violence. I am not just talking about shooting ranges, either.

In nearly all cases, a home invasion in which an armed occupant confronts an intruder, nobody gets hurt. I say nearly all cases, because sometimes the armed occupant is forced (by circumstances) to fire.

I personally was involved in an armed confrontation when I lived in Forth Worth, TX. I heard noise next door, so I stuck my Security Six in my waistband, grabbed a cordless phone (we didn't have cell phones in those days), and went outside to investigate. My next door neighbor had a landscaping business, and his expensive Kubota tractor was often chained to a tree in the front yard and there was more equipment on one side of the double car garage. I saw bolt cutters on the ground next to the chain and the tractor was being wheeled onto a pickup truck.

Realizing this wasn't right, I confronted the two men I saw. That's when three more emerged from the garage. We exchanged words, and all five rushed at me with knives drawn. I pulled that Security Six out and said I would kill each of them with it if I had to. They stopped. Nobody got hurt. I dialed 911, said I had 5 knife-wielding Mexicans at gunpoint, and I'd appreciate seeing a squad car or two pull up pronto. There were there in only a few minutes.

Now, I am a martial artist. I had reached 4th degree black belt by that time. I had practiced multi-attacker scenarios and even been in a multi-attacker fight while guarding a church that had been vandalized multiple times. I could have taken two of these guys out. But a knife demands a lot of attention and a lot of time. Trapping the arm, then breaking it, means enough time commitment that it leaves the fighter effectively defenseless against the others. If I'd not had that gun, it is likely I would have killed two people, grievously injured maybe two more, and been killed myself.

So when some old hag like Nutcase Nancy, who enjoys armed security at taxpayer expense, says "gun violence" what she really means is she wants to exacerbate violence by violating the common person's right to self-defense.

This is just one example. Throughout Covid-mania, the George Floyd scam, the violent civil war of the summer of 2020, and the aftermath of the unarmed rioting in January that Nutcase calls an "insurrection" (there's another example), we have been bombarded with these stupidity bombs of language abuse.

A big one right now is branding people who object to having their bodies invaded with the dangerous experimental gene therapy as "antivaxxers". This makes no sense. It's like saying someone who doesn't want snakes in their house is "anti-dog". The basis of the lie is to ignore the definition of a vaccine (something that stimulates the body to produce an immune response to a particular pathogen, by means of exposing the body to a weakened form of said pathogen) and absurdly call a spike protein stimulator a "vaccine". The lie is compounded by the name-calling, since the vast majority (probably 98%) of the targets of this abuse regularly get the recommended vaccines for themselves, their children, and their pets (assuming they have either or both of the last two to be responsible for).

Do not tolerate this manipulative, dishonest behavior. It is a weapon that is being used to undermine the rule of law, eliminate fair elections, and destroy the very fabric of society. Plus it annihilates intelligence.

4. Finance tip

Here are some life hacks to save  money. I picked this topic because those of us living in the Socialist States of America are under economic attack and it's going to get really bad before it gets better.
  • Reduce or eliminate medical care costs by eliminating from your diet all highly processed foods. A very simple step with massive benefits, yet relatively few people go for it. Recently at a grocery store, I said to another customer in the produce department, "This is my health care plan." She said, "Yeah, but it's expensive to eat this way." I replied that I save over a thousand dollars a month in medical-related costs (including the insurance premiums, prescription drugs, deductibles, etc.) and save significant time. So, it actually costs far less to eat in a sane way.
  • Optimize utilization of your residence. I saw recently two-bedroom flats going for $1200/month rent. The target demographic for these domiciles pays all that money, then "rents" space in restaurants, bars, and other places to do things they could do at home. Of course, using your home in an effective way also requires controlling clutter (e.g., not having it) so that you maximize your living space.
  • If your car gets under 25MPG, replace it with one that gets over 35MPG. Gasoline is headed to $8 a gallon before year's end, unless something changes (such as the 2020 election is properly recertified thus tossing Brainless out--ain't gonna happen). Plan your trips so there are no special trips, only combined trips that reduce total miles driven per week. Use synthetic engine oil, properly inflate your tires and check them every 2 to 3 weeks, and drive your car with fuel economy in mind. Driving with fuel economy in mind does not mean doing 35 MPH in the merge lane when getting on the Interstate (people who do that deserve an automatic one-year license suspension) or engaging in other dangerous behavior. It means you avoid changing lanes often, avoid jackrabbit starts, and avoid wild acceleration. A new driving method called "Paying Attention" has also proven to reduce fuel waste as well as collisions; imagine if even 10% of motorists adopted this method!
  • Eliminate impulse buying by implementing a 48 hour waiting period to actually purchase something you didn't already decide to buy. Emergency purchases, of course, are excluded. Just make sure you know an emergency from a non-emergency. This one technique will save the average family over $5,000 per year.
  • Don't feel obligated to "save money" by purchasing something just because it's on sale. If you don't need it, you don't save money by purchasing it no matter what the "savings" are per the sale price.
  • If you are owned by a home, make a point of complaining to your County Board about the latest drive by tax hike. Counties call these "appraisals", and they use them to raise your property taxes without increasing the mill rate so they can claim they didn't raise your property taxes. A home is an asset that depreciates in actual value over time, due to wear and tear. But it increases in market value over time due to this scam combined with the tax we call inflation. Inflation is not a general increase in prices, it is an increase in the money supply relative to the "basket of goods" produced (Economics 101).
  • Fix or repurpose things that are broken or no longer needed, rather than buy something new. This practice also helps reduce the waste stream. People really throw away too much stuff.
  • Plan and prep your meals. This 100% eliminates "lost in the fridge" food spoilage and dealing with leftovers. It's also a core strategy for maintaining a lean body composition.
  • If you have a cat, carefully read the labels on kibble and canned cat food. If there's any wheat or corn, toss that junk out immediately. Replace it with something safe for your cat to eat. The typical cat on the commonly used commercial cat food (which contains corn) has caries and periodontal disease by age 5 and renal disease by age 10 (usually terminal by age 12 or 13). A cat who never eats this garbage doesn't develop dental problems and is likely to live an additional decade past his or her poisoned counterpart. Spending more for cat-compatible food vastly reduces vet bills and has many other benefits to your cat and to you. A similar thing applies to dogs.
  • If you have a space to garden, then compost. I have two composting barrels. I do not use the garbage disposal. I have a dinky kitchen wastebasket, and use those little plastic grocery bags as liners; these almost never get full (I also buy the little trash bags for the dinky wastebasket since the little plastic grocery bags tend to run out because I take the trash out each evening). I don't buy processed food, so don't have the container waste that is part of that lifestyle.
  • If you have a paper towel dispenser readily available in your kitchen, remove it. Instead of using paper towels, use cloth rags. A typical family will save over $100 a year while eliminating the use of a product that is environmentally hostile to produce. You can cut your own rags from old cotton clothing such as T-shirts or even jeans.
  • Wash sheets correctly so you don't have to replace them for a very, very long time. Use white vinegar in the prewash and in the "bleach" bin. Use just a dollop of liquid detergent in the prewash and 1/4 the recommended amount in the regular wash. Spin on max. Don't add fabric ruiner to the washer or to the dryer. Dry on low or no heat until barely damp, let air dry the rest of the way.

5. Security tip

There's an old scam where someone knocks on your door and claims to be from a utility and they need to check inside your home for [whatever]. The standard advice from security consultants was to ask them to show you their photo ID from their employer and if it looks legitimate then you can let them in.

If someone knocks at your door and claims to be from the IRS, don't ask them for ID and don't let them in. Call 911 and say you have armed trespassers trying to gain entry to your home. The IRS does not control its employees, prevent them from engaging in criminal misconduct (even if felonious) ,or penalize them if they are caught engaging in criminal misconduct. If you let them into your house, they will note what's in there so they can make some false tax debt claim against you (that person can't afford the big dining table I saw, he must be cheating on his taxes). If you speak to them, they will do a phishing expedition on you.

Here's how you handle them. You say, "You are not welcome here. Police are on the way to remove you from the property because you are trespassing. Your office can contact my attorney. That is all I have to say". If you have to slam the door, slam it. Then lock it. If they won't take no for an answer, that's just too bad. Stick with no. Period.

Now when the police arrive, they may want to sort this out. The IRS agents will tell them they have a right to speak with you or even to come into your home. Tell the police you need to see a search warrant signed by a judge. And again, do not speak to the IRS people. Try to not even make eye contact with them. While not every IRS agent is a dangerous psychopath, enough are that you can't take chances.

Many people hold to the naive idea that if you did nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear. Whether you did anything wrong or not isn't relevant. In my own case, a federal judge ruled against the IRS and in favor of 4300 plaintiffs (my name was on the list). The judge said we had done nothing wrong and he told the IRS to stop their actions against us. The IRS ignored the judge and persisted with the fiction that we 4300 victims of a scam run by IRS muckety muck Kevin Brown were engaged in tax dodging. Brown made $103 million "disappear", so he was highly incentivized to misuse the IRS apparatus to hamstring the victims of his heist. Brown later left the IRS, and briefly headed up the American Red Cross before being bounced out of there over a scandal.

When anyone has the crazy idea that the IRS is somehow not a terrorist organization, I always invite them to read about my 17 year ordeal in which unaccountable rogue employees violated my basic human rights and 7 of the 10 rights protected by the Bill of Rights:

You should always consider contact with the IRS to be an existential threat. Always put an attorney between them and you. No exceptions. If IRS starts snooping around you, hire a tax attorney and sign a POA as soon as you are physically able to do so. It is an urgent situation.

No matter what the IRS people tell you, don't talk with them, don't let them in your home, and don't fill out any forms. You may think it's in your best interests to be "reasonable" but that's like a mouse trying to be "reasonable" toward a mouse or hawk that is about to pounce. It can only end badly. Be unreasonable instead, and you can avoid being lunch.

See my climbing videos here:

I grew up on home-grown food, both fresh and canned. The plants grew in the deep, dark, rich soil of northern Illinois. And for that reason, these plants reached their genetic potential for being nutritious. Chickens that ate the grass that grew in this rich soil produced tasty, dark yolk eggs. My grandmother had pigs that ate food scraps from the food grown in this soil, and their meat was nutritious and toxin-free.

At my present location, the soil is clay. Yet, I still eat food grown in dark, rich soil. How is that?

Some of my readers already know the answer, but some of you don't. It's a good answer to know, so let's continue.

Clay doesn't drain and can't be amended. So you can go one of two ways. One is to dig a huge, deep pit, backfill it with sand and gravel and a layer of soil--and run long drainage tiles. This is expensive and usually infeasible.

The other option is to build a raised bed. You can evacuate the top six inches of clay, replacing with something that drains or you can make the walls really tall. A shallow raised bed, for example, one built of 2x6 planks directly on top of the ground, really limits what kinds of crops you can plant.

It's all about the soil. Don't use chemical fertilizers. Instead, compost, compost, compost. You want to create a rich biome full of living things. If your soil is not full of life, neither will be the food you grow in it. Don't ever step on your raised bed soil, you will compress it.

I live in suburbia, where mowing is a requirement. My mower has an adjustable chute diverter so I can partially bag and partially mulch. I keep the control to about the middle, and I use the bagged grass clipping to mulch around the plants in my garden and around trees and shrubs. The mulch in the garden nearly eliminates the need to water, though during the annual drought (lasts typically three to five weeks) regular watering is required. Each spring, I lay a soaker hose along a snaking path in the garden. I leave the input end sticking out over a wall stone. The soaker hose is under a thick layer of mulch by this time. I hook it up and run it for maybe an hour, and the soil gets soaked. No evaporative waste, and no water being sprayed or dripped onto the tomatoes (thus no leaf rot). The mulching also nearly eliminates weeds and thus weeding.

I could have bought commercial mulch. It lasts longer and looks nicer. I have that around the exterior of my raised bed, but not on the inside. The grass clippings don't contain any toxins, but commercial mulch does. The grass clippings decay through the summer (but I am always adding) and (at a much slower pace) throughout the winter. during the growing season, I can lift a patch of this to bury new compost on top of soil but under the mulch. In the spring, I dig big holes in which to bury several months of compost (I have two compost tumblers), and what's left of the grass clippings just gets turned under.

Obviously, the gardening isn't my only source of food. I can't, for example, grow tomatoes and peppers in the winter. But during the growing season, it is a source of supremely nutritious food.

If you don't have a yard in which you can build a garden (and the soil in it), consider doing something on a smaller scale using pots. Or consider joining a community garden organization; if there isn't one, why not start one?

The mere act of growing food has restorative value, and that is beyond its nutritional benefits.

Also to help with making nutritious food available, support local farmers as you can. Buy fresh produce so the stores that carry it have less spoilage by dint of the fact people are buying what they put out. Yes, growing your own works somewhat against this goal. But you can't grow everything. Supplement home grown with locally grown.

I have long had a health motivation for gardening. For many people, there is increasingly an economic motivation due to the unrelenting assault on our economy, supply chains, etc., by the socialists. Growing food in the typical manner, with pesticides and chemical fertilizers, will cost you more than just buying it at the store. And you lose the health benefits. Going old school by building the soil and mulching, vastly reduces cost to the point where you can save significantly over store-bought.


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

As I write this, nobody has died from Monkey Pox during the current outbreak. It is spread primarily through sexual contact (don't bend over in front of an IRS agent), the symptoms are mild, and the regular smallpox vaccine protects against it.

8. Thought for the Day

This is the kind of thinking that creates the typical politician: "I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness."

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.
