1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

  1. This issue is dated for the day before Independence Day, 2022. To many (former) citizens of the (former) United States, it seems odd to celebrate that day, since we are now a conquered and occupied nation rather than one that is governing itself and accountable to its people. I think we need to view the 4th as a sign of what is coming. Sane people outnumber the crazies who seized the means of governing, and we still have 36 free states plus most of the federal judiciary on our side. We may not end the stupidity that has brought about socialist rule, but we can end socialist rule.

    Support election reform laws in your state and county, and fight the election corruption laws being proposed by Nutcase Nancy and her gang of whackos. This November could initiate the end of the Socialist States of America, and if the Republican Party has enough actual Republicans then Biden will cease to be our puppet President some time in February. Yes, it is a very long eight months to wait for the rule of law to return, but hang in there. Then we will truly have something to celebrate on the 4th of July next year.
  2. The European Union is set to ban glyphosate at the end of this year. Meanwhile, this powerful neurotoxin will still be used to grow the wheat and corn that many Americans are addicted to (your diet needs to be free of wheat and corn if you value your brain). Read more about it, here:
  3. The victim-residents (aka, "citizens") of NYC have a Mayor who, like his pre-De Blasio predecessors (both Democrat and Republican) loves NYC. Mayor Eric Adams is following the science instead of Fauci, so his administration is not enforcing the anti-health "mandates" such as closing down businesses that don't force their employees to undergo the immunity-reducing jab. He's probably on a low-glyphosate diet.
  4. The Covid scam continues to unravel as more and more people understand that on one side is the science and on the other are the CDC, Fauci, Biden, the pro-jab regulators, and the mask morons (aka, "mastards).
  5. Wearing an N95 mask for things like shopping serves no medical purpose, unless you have severe allergies--and nasal steroids, Neti-potting, antihistamines, and HEPA filters in your home just don't get the job done. Thus, wearing such a mask in public is a political statement. And it's rude. To stop this behavior, we need to ask the masktards we encounter if there's some reason they cover their face. "Excuse me, I noticed you are covering your face. Is there some reason for doing that?" They will probably act all offended, as if wearing a "I am stupid" sign should not be noticed or questioned. Fine, let them get offended. They asked for it, by being rude in the first place.

    Another thing you can do is say, "I'll bet you're wearing that mask because of Covid. Have you tried the anti-Covid underpants? Would you like to see mine?" This really blows their tiny minds.
  6. I visited a new eye doctor just before the holiday. One of the people at the front desk asked me if I had any plans for the 4th of July. I said, "I don't celebrate it now that we are the Socialist States of America. But I will be happy to celebrate it once we are liberated."

A note on shipping: Regardless of the handling shown in the listing, most orders ship out on the same day if ordered before noon. Our fulfillment company presents several shipping options for a given customer's address, and we always select the fastest one shown even if the eBay listing shows only UPS Ground. We are underpromising and overdelivering, which is much better for you than the other way around.

3. Brainpower tip


A libtard working for one of the outside services vendors we use sent me a message about Juneteenth, and in it he practically made a hero out of Brainless Biden. Here is my reply:

"It seems an odd thing to celebrate since over 80% of people who call themselves black are either descendants of people who arrived in America after emancipation or themselves came here. These millions of free "blacks" came here because it's the land of opportunity, not the land of oppression (as that false victimhood narrative goes). I personally don't see people as being less able due to whatever skin color they have, but Biden keeps beating that particular racist drum. My own ethnic group comprises 6% of the American population ("blacks" are 13%) and we have long been targets of hateful remarks and behaviors. But we stay here and thrive!

On this same day in June, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed as communist spies, so that is another way to celebrate the 19th (if you believe they were guilty, and evidence there is sketchy)."


These  various narratives about how people who call themselves "black" (PWCTB) are oppressed are prima facie false. Nobody is forcing them to stay in the USA. If it is so bad here, why do they not relocate to Canada or Mexico? Only 1/6 of the world's population lives in the entire western hemisphere, so there are plenty of places they can go at fairly low cost. But you don't see them doing that, do you? Then there are the PWCTBs who give their kids stupid-sounding made-up "African" names to impede their participation in American society. If Subsaharan Africa is so wonderful, why don't they move there?

The reality is that PWCTBs do not experience systematic racism, systematic oppression, or racial injustice.

  • Many PWCTBs are disadvantaged, because they choose to speak jive, cop an attitude, avoid work, dress inappropriately, fail to study, do D- work instead of A level work, etc. They blame external forces and other people for their failures.
  • Many people who are called black by others (and also many PWCTBs) are highly articulate, have a strong work ethic, bring their A game to everything, dress for success, and really know their stuff. They do not consider failure an option, they find a way to overcome whatever is in the way. They succeed and are admired. People, regardless of skin color, come to them for advice.

Something I cannot fathom about PWCTBs is why any of them ever vote for a Democrat. For decades, PWCTBs have been a "taken for granted by the Democrat Party leaders" voting block. When I have inquired, the reply has always been some reference to the 1964 Civil Rights Act. What the PWCTBs ignore is that if not for the Democratic Party, it would have been the 19 FIFTY 4 Civil Rights Act. During the War, Ike took a profoundly pro Negro integration/equality/rights attitude and he carried that with him into the Presidency. He could not abide the many stupid policies, laws, ordinances, and practices that treated people worse based on their skin color. As POTUS, he got the Republicans behind one civil rights act after another, but Speaker of the House LBJ could not get the votes from his own Democratic Party to pass those measures without watering them down severely.

Once LBJ was POTUS, he had the push to get Ike's dream signed into law. And what was the consequence of that? Suddenly, the Vietnam War spiraled out of control. It so damaged his Presidency, that he announced he would not seek and would not accept, the nomination for POTUS in the 1968 election. After the Act was signed, the Democrats found multiple ways to destroy "black" families and foist the victim mentality onto PWCTBs.

Yet another pointless group with no real problems to solve

Then there are these folks, the LGBTs, who claim their "rights" are being violated. Ask them, "What rights do you not have that other people do have?" and they can't name even one. Some will say the right to marry the one they love, but by definition a marriage is a legal contract between a man and a woman. Anybody can form a civil union, whether they are the same sex or not.

Yet, these nutjobs insist that they are going through "genocide" and being denied their civil rights. They fail to acknowledge the fact that people who don't wear "gay" on their sleeve and/or discuss openly their sexual habits or "act gay" (behave in contrived manner that alienates people) seem to do just fine in life. In fact, before these nutjobs came along, the demographic of known/admitted gays put them well above the average level of income and wealth. They didn't whine about being oppressed, they focused on succeeding.

A new group

What if we started a new "oppressed" group called LCBT? That stands for Logical Cognition-using Brain-enabled Thinkers. We are definitely a minority and we are definitely oppressed. To swell our numbers, erhaps we could admit to our group reasonably intelligent house pets. Most cats, for example, are logical and use cognition and are brain-enabled and are thinkers. Cats solve problems that they find interesting and they also have a lot of patience for just sitting there thinking.

I contrast this with libtards, who are irrational, lack basic cognitive skills, have severe brain disablement, and have yet to demonstrate any ability to think. Rather than solve problems, they create new ones while also exacerbating existing ones. Unlike libtards, who are hateful and intolerant, the typical housecat is affectionate and accepting. Cats purr, libtards whine. I wonder if there is a direct correlation between having a negative IQ and being a whining, self-centered, hateful bully? There certainly seems to be.

We LCBTs do not have our own "pride" month, do not whine about pronouns, and don't make up silly problems just to have something to complain about. Nor do we demand reparations from stupid people, though when you think about the costs stupid people inflict on us every day we really do deserve reparations.

No victims?

People who take on the victim persona become victims. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy, regardless of skin color. People who take on the victor person become victorious. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy, regardless of skin color.

We are bombarded with stupid, baseless claims about social injustice as if some people who had nothing to do with the problems of some other people who created their own problems should feel guilty about the person experiencing problems of their own creation. The brainpower lesson here is each of us needs to challenge the stupidity or we let it win.

4. Finance tip

Before the coup, unemployment was at a 50 year low. Since the socialists took over and installed their pet retard in the White House, inflation has skyrocketed and employment has nose-dived. Oddly enough, some companies have closed due to not being able to hire enough qualified employees thus costing the jobs of the employees they did have. With all the idiotic, unscientific, health-harming rules imposed under the delusional assumption that Covid 19 is a threat to healthy people even though it never has been, many people won't go to work. The "jab or job" choice, also imposed with no scientific basis behind the delusional assumption it offers some kind of group Covid protection if enough people in a group get it, has meant people who prefer to keep their health lose their job.

What's happened in response to all this job loss is many people are starting their own business as:

  • An Amazon seller or eBay seller. Selling in these marketplaces is the path to poverty (and extreme debt) unless you have the business education and experience plus the specialized knowledge required to succeed. The vast majority of people who try this fail. Spectacularly.
  • A consultant. In an effort to really drum up business, they don't specialize (wouldn't want to miss that opportunity!). Being a successful consultant requires a commitment to do things like attend trade shows, be involved in professional associations related to your area of specialty, and stay current with licenses and certifications.
  • A handyman. "Hey, I'm good with tools so why not monetize that?" Skinflints hire a "handyman" and then demand perfect work, free work, and work under poor conditions. Pass.
  • An Uber or Lyft driver. You cannot make money doing this as a business, because it takes such a huge toll on your car.
  • The ideal host for AirBnB or some similar gig. There are reasons why hotels charge what they charge. The vast majority of people lose not just money, but their sanity doing this.

The mistake all of these people make is they are looking for something they perceive as "easy" to do, with no real start-up costs, no real investment, and well, no real business aspect to it. Any business venture you start needs to be in an area you already understand and it needs to be something you really care about and enjoy doing. You will have to accept the fact that nothing that you can actually make a living doing is "ready to go". You might do any of these things as a side hustle, perhaps building experience and those all-important business connections. But you don't just pick up something and start making a good living with it.

If you find yourself unemployed and unable to find work, you need to sit down and think about what you offer. What problem can you solve for a prospective employer? If you were going to hire someone to replace a toilet, what job title would you seek to hire? A plumber. It's one word. Plumber. Read the idiocy on the typical "loaded with keywords and nonsense sentences" resume. Ask a plumber, "Can you replace my toilet today" and he's not going to say, "I'm looking for a forward-thinking environment in which I can further develop my skills as a team player and leader, with the longer term goal of moving into upper management". But if he did, would you not throw him out of your house rather than hire him?

Don't look for a job. Look for a problem that you are especially suited to solve, then find an employer with that problem. Network, but not in an obnoxious way. That is, don't show up at events and hand out your resume. I don't believe in resumes, myself. The last few times I got hired, I didn't bother with a resume. I had spent time building contacts by doing things for people, being nice to people, doing outstanding work, never being late to a meeting or with an assignment, going to industry events, and expertly polishing my shoes before every meeting. People asked me if I would consider working for them, I didn't ask them for a job.

Rather than polishing your resume and sending it out to some HR person who will probably trash it, polish other people's apples (and your shoes, of course). By polishing other people's apples, I mean making them feel good that they are around you (show interest in them, have a positive air about you without being unrealistic, be helpful, and smile). Sure, this won't get you a job right away. But doing this consistently as a way of being is how you have your ducks lined up in a row so that if you do find yourself jobless that shouldn't be for long.

More than once, I have had a job offer made to me on the very day I lost my current job. Before cell phones, I'd get a call before I even had time to sit down to dinner. The last time I got let go (after four years of layoffs at this company), I had one offer before I got out the door and a second one before I got to the parking lot. My boss had actually made the calls to the people who called me. I didn't ask him to do that, but he hated it that I got laid off. He also hired me for freelance work after the decimated company was sold to a new owner; that was nearly 20 years ago and I have been freelancing for them ever since.

Always be the solution to someone else's problem(s) rather than asking them to solve your problem of being out of work. Nobody owes you a job, but plenty of people are willing to pay for help solving their problems.

5. Security tip

If enough electric cars are sold, everyone's electric bill will decrease because of the blackouts that will result from stupidly overloading the grid. That's (sort of) the good news.

Think how many people will die from electric cars for this one reason. When it's 110 DegrF in your house with all the windows open and you're the typical senior citizen your chance of surviving is poor. The whole point of electric cars is to kill people off by causing widespread loss of electric power. Not just homes, but also hospitals.

The psychopaths who run things keep coming up with these population control measures. Daylight Carnage Time kills and maims large numbers of people each year, yet Congress refuses to stop the killing. That's because Congress is controlled by a handful of rich, powerful people rather than voters. And those rich, powerful people do not like sharing the planet with the rest of us. We breathe THEIR air, drink THEIR water, and use THEIR resources. They don't care that we also work to provide THEM (and everybody else) with the comforts of life.

During the Covid scamdemic, Quacktor Fauci and the Centers for Disease Continuance kept spewing nutball advice that made people sicker. Sadly, many people believed even the most stupid things. If Fauci had said you have to cut off your pinkie finger to stop the spread of the virus (a virus that was never a threat to otherwise healthy people), you can bet millions of libtards would have cut off their pinkie finger and then tried to shame the brain-enabled into doing the same thing. This sounds like a stretch, but look at all the stupid things libtards are STILL doing to make themselves sicker because they inanely believe those same idiotic practices will somehow protect them from a virus that has long since exited stage left.

We now have only two effective vaccines for Covid-19:

  1. The produce department.
  2. Covid-22, aka Omicron. People who get this mild form of Covid (a vaccine, BTW, is by definition a mild or inert form of the pathogen) developed the full-blown, three-part antigen defense Covid-19.

Yet, the psychopaths continue to push the experimental gene therapies and the lie that these are somehow vaccines. The death toll from the jab is huge compared to the death toll from Covid-19. In other words, when Covid-19 failed to reduce the population to the desired level out came the ersatz pseudovaccines to do the job. And those are proving to be very effective in killing people. In the Pfizer trials, the jab killed 1,200 people. That is why Pfizer wanted the records sealed for 75 years. I have a copy of the trial results, and will send those to anyone who asks.

You can continue to examine public policies that kill people but bear names that dishonestly make them appear to be benign. You will find the list just goes on and on. And that's because we peons have been deemed to be an infection in the body of Mother Earth. Like any infection, we must be eliminated. That is what is  behind all these thinly disguised population reduction measures.

What can you do about this?

A simple piece of advice, here. Use your own judgment and common sense. Don't simply go along with things, but examine them. What happens, for example, when over 300 million people are suddenly in a state of sleep deprivation? Does this make you safe? Of course not, which is why the twice per year clock changes always produce a spike in traffic fatalities and industrial accidents.

You can examine EVERY BIT of Fauci's advice, except for the wash your hands thing, and find what he advised did nothing to stem Covid but often made people sicker. And that was his goal, to make people sicker so there are fewer of us to crowd the planet.

Accept nothing from "the experts" as true. Don't automatically reject it as false, either. First administer "the smell test"; this is what knocked out everything Fauci said, it was all just prima facie stupid. If it passes the smell test, then submit it to more rigorous examination. Remember, anything said by the lamestream media has a 99.999% chance of being wrong. A stopped clock is right twice a day, so it is theoretically possible that something being spewed to the public is actually true. Maybe even useful.

Then again, as my wise friend Joseph pointed out, when it's a digital clock the display just goes dead. And I think that is where we are with Fauci, the woke morons, the socialists, the 72 genders people, the Biden supporters, and the other severely brain-disabled who should just sit down and shut up.

Their "brain clocks" are simply dead. Rather than look for something these nitwits accidentally get right, don't waste your time listening to them. There are plenty of informed, rational people who will disagree with you in an intelligent way, and THOSE are the people to toss ideas back and forth with. And THOSE are the people with whom we can take a stand against the onslaught of destructive stupidity that is a colossal threat to those of us who are brain-enabled.

See my climbing videos here:

Here's an article on Daylight Carnage Time, a population control measure that most people simply go along with (to their detriment):

If you want "an extra hour of sunlight" in the evening, then simply get up a little earlier and your waking day will send sooner. You can do evening chores in the morning before heading off to work, or ask for flextime if you do not already have it. Personally, I stay on Daylight Carnage Time year 'round. During non-DCT I start my day at 0420, but for most of the year it's a more reasonable 0520.

There is no reason to change the clocks, except to help reduce the human population. Population reduction is the main result of this practice. No daylight is actually saved, it is merely reallocated by lying about what time it is. A colossally stupid idea that we all need to reject.

Here are some other colossally stupid ideas that we all need to reject:

  • The drinking of sodas. Say hello to esophageal cancer, osteoporosis, and tooth decay. Wonderful.
  • Calling "food" anything that contains safflower oil, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, American wheat (and other glyphosate-contaminate products).
  • Calling an experimental gene therapy that doesn't stimulate the production of an antigen a "vaccine".
  • Doing "full body" workouts and expecting good results. It is not sustainable or particularly productive, because of human physiology. The correct solution is the one used by all serious athletes, and it's called the split routine.
  • Using toxic chemical concoctions to "clean" your home. How does spreading poison in your house make it "clean"? Isn't the purpose of cleaning to make your home more livable, not less?
  • Using the phrase "convenience food". There is convenience poison, but convenience food does not exist.
  • While at the grocery store near the peanut butter, coming across an amberish, fairly clear fluid in a jar marked "honey" and believing the label. That fluid is clear because what was once honey was overheated and destroyed; it's now basically an enzymeless, dead sugar concoction.
  • While at the grocery store near the honey (if they actually have any real honey), coming across a brown paste in a jar marked "peanut butter" and believing the label even though the stuff inside the jar has been rendered unfit for human consumption by the addition of detergent (aka, "emulsifier"), seed oil, vegetable oil, sugar, HFC, dextrose, maltose, or any combination thereof.
  • Pretending there is such a thing as a "low fat" dairy product. To make such a product, the food is homogenized (all fat broken down into tiny, same-size particles), emulsified (detergent added), overheated, and processed in other ways before adding corn starch, sugar, and/or other contaminants to render it unfit for human consumption.
  • Pretending there is such a thing as a "fat-free" dairy product. It's like the low-fat garbage, only worse.

Not related to health or fitness, but important all the same:

  • Calling wind or solar electric sources "green energy". They are not green, they are intermittent. Call them intermittent energy. Calling them "green" ignores the fact that, per watt generated over the life of the installation, they produce just as much CO2 as a coal plant.
  • Electric cars. This is stupid in the extreme. There is no economic or environmental justification for these, only stupidity posing as concern for the environment.

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.
