1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

  1. Some fact-based updates on the immunity reduction jabs (15 minute video, plus slides and other info):
  2. The communist countries within the borders of the former United States of America continue to see an exodus not only of individuals but also of companies. How these retards could expect anything else is puzzling. Companies must make a profit and must also have reasonable non-hostile work environments. Subjecting companies to idiotic, needless, expensive requirements while also requiring them to subject their employees to "woke" brainwashing attempts is exactly how you expel your creators of wealth. This massive shift in economic power will help bring about the liberation of our people and the restoration of the United States of America. In regard to the conquering of our country, let's us adopt the slogan "Never Again" once liberation is under way. I personally would like to see the erection of museums and monuments informing future generations what happened and why.
  3. The liberation will be only transitory if we do not also expel or imprison the radical socialists who waged and won America's great civil war (the 1861 war was not a civil war, it was a war of secession; in a civil war, you invade to take over the means of governance and in a war of secession you flee the means of governance to establish your own).
  4. A Libertarian Party message in response to Brainless' idiotic message to gas stations to lower their prices:
    "You know as well as everyone that the Federal Reserve actually sets the prices—through rampant inflation. When 40 percent of the dollars in the world was printed in one year, inflation sets in and prices skyrocket. Just yesterday you were blaming [Russia]. We see through your scam.”
  5. This America-hater was loudly booed while onstage in her own state: What's remarkable is her state is the People's Islamic Republic of Minnesota. This is a good sign that the socialist disease is losing its grip. Could the PIRM be on its way to becoming a free state?
  6. Here's a great story about one private citizen's impressive efforts to move the USA toward free and honest elections, something we clearly have not had in a long time:
  7. This video shows one way that sane people stand up to the crazy libtards:
  8. A recent Rassmussen poll showed Brainless has an approval rating of 37%, the lowest in modern history. This figure is astounding, not because it is so low but because it is far higher than should be expected in light of Brainless' unrelenting assaults on this country in myriad ways and his string of disasters. What this figure shows is that slightly more than a third of the population is either mentally retarded or mentally ill.
  9. Here's yet another astounding look inside the Covid scam:
  10. Dick's Sporting Goods, which has engaged in age discrimination against its employees and its customers, has found a new way to practice hatred and intolerance. Dick's provides up to $4,000 in travel reimbursement to an employee, spouse or dependent, to receive an abortion but does not provide equal compensation for employees, spouses or dependents who have just given birth. Such discrimination is illegal under Title VII.

    Mental illness first became "a thing" at Dick's when the company's CEO went off the deep end about law-abiding gun owners (this is a company whose primary demographic is outdoors people like hunters and fishers). The Board not only failed to fire him, they backed him! Law-abiding, gun-owning citizens announced a national boycott of Dick's several years ago but people still shop there and support this nasty company.
  11. Fraudumentary maker Michael Moore has proposed a 28th Amendment. It would repeal the second Amendment and disarm the American people the same way the Nazis disarmed the German people. We all know how that turned out. Moore, like many libtards, doesn't want rapists and other violent criminals to live in fear of "gun violence" from people who had the foresight to obtain and train with an "equalizer". The truth is that the safest cities in the USA don't provide this protection for violent criminals (gee, imagine that) while the five cities that move us from the top of the list (safest country on earth, if you exclude them from our murder stats) to the bottom of the list (most dangerous country on earth, if you include them in our murder states) have the tightest gun restrictions.

    I suggest that Mr. Moore conduct two experiments. First, grab a shotgun and shoot fish in a barrel (these fish have no means of fighting back). Second, grab a shotgun and get into piranha infested waters (these fish are literally armed to the eyeteeth). In which scenario do you expect to see the lowest death toll among the fish? Your answer is why these experiments must be conducted in this order, not the other way around. Will Moore ever conduct these two experiments? Yes, if he truly believes that potential victims are safer by dint of being rendered defenseless. No, if he doesn't believe his own line of crap.

    I am still waiting for Moore to make the documentary showing gazelles attacking lions and killing them, something about as likely as an unarmed petite granny taking out a couple of large repeat offender dudes who broke into her home while brandishing baseball bats and machetes. Give granny a .38 pistol and she's no longer the prey. I'd rather Moore just do the fish experiment, starting a movement where libtards keep trying this (to get a different outcome) until society is free of the libtard disease.

3. Brainpower tip


Let's look at some common libtard beliefs.

  • The way to reduce violent crime is to pass laws that render potential victims defenseless.

  • Opinion, no matter how absurd and baseless, is superior to objective fact.

  • Racism is honorable and fair, as long as you call it something else.

  • The way to reduce CO2 emissions is to add other kinds of pollution (such as that created by lithium mining) but not reduce overall CO2 emissions. For example, wind-power emits as much CO2 per watt as coal-powered generation but somehow strip mining for the lithium used to reduce intermittency does not pollute.

  • If you call an intermittent energy source "green" it does not pollute and it provides power all the time.

  • It is more important to stress out schoolchildren over global warming than it is to teach them simple habits of reduce, reuse, and recycle; pointless stress is always better than specific, positive actions.

  • The laws of physics do not apply to libtard fantasies.

  • The laws of a republic do not apply to violent libtards (neither do laws of any other form ot government nor do the the rules of common human decency)..

  • It is perfectly acceptable to destroy private property and public property if you pretend that doing so is perfectly acceptable.

  • In the statement XB, where B is either X or Y, you can have more than two variations.

  • Millions of people "of color" moved to the USA since 1870 not because it is the land of opportunity, but because it is the land of oppression of people of color.

  • People who act and dress in  bizarre ways, have a poor work ethic, and don't make an effort to improve their job skills or social skills are victims of oppression instead of their own choices.

  • Hatred is good.

  • Intolerance is good.

  • Diversity is bad.

  • Laws that are duly enacted by the legislative branch, signed into law by the executive branch, and judged Constitutional by the judicial branch are "a threat to our democracy".

  • We have a "democracy".

  • Elections should always be about how many fake ballots can be produced, how many dead people vote, and how many votes can be registered in excess of the number of voters in a given county.

  • People who do not cover their face with the equivalent of magic underpants are a threat to everyone else.

  • People who do not submit themselves to the immunity reduction jab, which does nothing to impede the spread of any virus, are a threat to everyone else.

  • A doctor who treats a patient for a viral infection using standard, proven medical treatments should be jailed.

  • Nancy Pelosi deserves armed protection at the taxpayers' expense, but a single mother should not have the means of protecting her children from violent assault.

  • Kids who attend public schools should be set up as fish in a barrel by making sure teachers don't even have the option of being armed.

  • A .223 caliber weapon is somehow a scourge on society even though only 5% of armed homicides involve such a weapon.

This list is by no means exhaustive. It is hard to find a libtard belief that is rational or in some way connected to reality. How can anyone with a measurable IQ believe even a smidgen of what these people say every day? The answer has to do with why we can watch the old Star Trek movies and actually enjoy them instead of groan the whole time. In the case of Star Trek, it's a thing call suspension of belief. We choose to simply accept transporter beams, warp drive, and whatever else we know is not real so that we can enjoy the story.

Libtards do something similar. They suspend their ability to question idiocy so they can enjoy being part of a sort of tribe. They take things beyond that by investing in active stupidity, thus registering a negative IQ. They get approval from other negative IQ people, and that makes them feel good. They induce in themselves a mental illness that is like heroin addiction or sugar addiction in terms of the dopamine dependency effects. Once it takes root, it's almost impossible to cure. Prevention, then, is paramount.

People who do not exercise their brains are at heightened risk for this mental illness. When you are mentally an underperformer, it can be emotionally painful. You screw up at work or can't carry your end of a meaty conversation or just do not understand common topics like civics, history, or math. But if someone else gives you an emotional "piece of candy", you feel better. That's the dopamine hit. But to get that "piece of candy", you need to please the person who hands those out. To please that person, you must not only suspend your ability to question idiocy but also engage in active stupidity. It doesn't take long to train the brain to go on permanent vacation, at least in terms of any reasoning ability. You begin to hallucinate, seeing everything in terms of race or politics or some other social construct. As the disease progresses, you become totally unconnected from reality and totally dependent on the approval of people with the same disease.

So the first step is to exercise your brain. I don't mean just by doing crossword puzzles or other brainteasers you find in magazines. I mean instead of accepting something at face value, ask what it means. For example, "social justice" sounds great. But you should ask, "What injustice are we talking about that justice is needed?" Keep probing, and five layers deep (using the Five Questions Method) you will find it's all nonsense. Often, you can find it's all nonsense with just one question. One! You gain immunity to idiocy via this method.

The next step is to control your exposure to libtards. You can't avoid them entirely, so have a plan for how to deal with them. Limit the exposure time as much as is practical, and don't engage them in a "debate" or a "discussion". They are intolerant and hate diversity, while also needing approval; this means their only interest will be in attacking you in some way so that in their fevered little minds they picture another mentally ill person telling them their behavior makes them a hero.

You can also try dropping a small truth bomb on them and walking away. Not that they will think about it, but it will help trigger some cognitive looping that will reduce their vehemence and hostility.

4. Finance tip

While there is presently a corporate backlash against insanity such as "wokeism" and the requirement to undergo the immunity reduction jab as a condition of continued employment, not all companies are riding on the Sanity Express. Even in companies that are, an individual manager or even one insane coworker can poison your job with the company. Some self-defense:
  • Document and monetize your accomplishments, submit a report monthly to your boss, your boss' boss, the CEO or Division VP (yes, because nobody else will do this), and the HR manager. Do not document the carrying out of routine responsibilities. If you don't have any accomplishments, work on that.
  • Tempting as it may be, don't badmouth anyone at work. Don't badmouth any customers/clients, or suppliers, either. Don't badmouth the competition.
  • In general, be upbeat. This does not mean that you should go around pretending everything is wonderful. Address problems, but rather than just complain about them either suggest specific solutions or ask if you can be part of a team that might come up with answers.
  • Keep personal problems private.
  • Don't be afraid to admit mistakes. In fact, own any mistakes you make. Tell your boss what you did wrong (this builds trust) and how you will remedy the cause (this builds confidence).
  • Don't become an office slug or overtime pig. Going this route means you put in time rather than working smart. That's how you end up turning in mediocre work and burning out.
  • Don't skip meals or workouts. Your energy will be evident in the workplace.
  • Talk with your boss often enough to understand what tasks your boss worries about and offer to handle one of them. Don't offer to take on everything, because that sets you up to fail. Do one thing really well, and your boss will be impressed.
  • Make contacts with people in your industry and within your company by volunteering, attending events, being nice, asking questions, showing an interest in others, and not bragging about yourself.
  • If you commute, allow plenty of time. This way, you're not all stressed from the traffic.
  • Don't become enslaved to texts, phone calls, Zoom meetings, meat space meetings, e-mail, etc. Prioritize your time such that 80% of it is spent on accomplishing something useful, important, and/or urgent. This means if you work 10 hours/day, you will spend only 2 of those hours on  texts, phone calls, Zoom meetings, meat space meetings, e-mail, etc. instead of the more typical nine and a half hours.
  • Look for ways to automate or eliminate low value activities.
  • If there's a communal coffee pot, chances are the coffee tastes terrible because nobody cleans the pot. Want to make powerful friends? Bring a spray bottle of vinegar to work and, without being asked to, clean the coffee pot on the C-suite floor every other afternoon (clean the one on your floor on the other afternoons). If you do not know how to do this correctly, learn that first and practice at home. Else, you will really make enemies at work.
  • Do the same thing with microwave ovens, but only once per week.
  • Don't grab the closest possible parking spot in the company parking lot.
  • Ensure your shoes are well-polished, and do not wear the same pair every day.
  • Don't wear ratty or dirty clothes to any company function (including the office). Ever.
  • Keep your fingernails clean and groomed (no chewing, either!), maintain your cuticles.
  • Trim hair in nose, ears, nape of neck, neck/chest line, etc.
  • Elevate your English. The vast majority of Americans have poor grammar, and it marks them in the minds of decision-makers. Improve yours by working through an SAT prep book, a college English text, or other English-tutoring source. And read copiously!
  • Keep e-mails short and focused. Otherwise, they will be misunderstood (if read at all).
  • Do not discuss politics, religion, or similar topics at work or work-related functions. Whatever anyone else says is right in their mind, so just say you appreciate their input and let it go at that.
  • Keep your workspace clean, functional, and uncluttered (all three are intimately related). No piles of stuff on your desk or a chair. If you have paper items to go through, keep all of them in one basket or box rather than spreading them out.
  • Compliment people when they honestly deserve it. Don't compliment them when they don't, the fakeness will offend anyone who is even semi-intelligent.
  • Build your skills and contacts, rather than worry about being laid off. Your confidence will extend your shelf-life significantly.

5. Security tip

Sensing the end of their reign of error, the libtards are cranking up the rhetoric and the violence. They are, at the moment, most incensed about the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.

Regardless of what you think on the issue (pro medical assistance or a ban), the simple fact is the Constitution is silent on about it. So, whether we would like it to be a federal issue or not, it is not. The power to decide is reserved to the people and to the states, just as are many other issues. That's just how the law is. Those in favor of Roe had nearly 50 years to get the law changed while this illegal decision stood. They did not prevail, because that was not the will of the people or the states. Questions of morality, preference, efficiency, etc., are not relevant. It's strictly a legal question. And the law is very clear.

Can an illegal law be morally just? Can a lawful law be morally unjust? Yes, the law is not an arbiter or definer of morality. Illegally hiding Polish Jews in your attic in 1943 was morally just, the law barring this was not. A similar logic applies to court decisions, Dred Scott being an example. The SCOTUS did not render a moral decision, it merely determined the legality of Roe. Many people who are not libtards supported Roe for various reasons. And they are not happy to see that Roe has been overturned and that nothing has been put in its place legislatively. The latter would require a Constitutional Amendment, but that did not happen in 50 years because of grandstanding, pandering, dishonesty, and stupidity taking the place of deliberation in the legislature.

Now the socialists and the libtards are using Roe as yet another issue to exhibit irrational, violent behavior and distract people from the real problems. For example, the mentally retarded man now illegally occupying the White House has created a series of disasters for the country--and more are on the way. People should be clamoring for six specific states to recertify, thereby putting the actual winner of the 2020 POTUS election back in the White House. Not that he's an A+ player (maturity clearly isn't his strong suit), but a 50 year low in unemployment, reasonable fuel prices, international stability, energy independence, etc., his policies brought about are all good. And all gone.

With November elections coming up, the need for election integrity is paramount. The socialists and libtards know this, so they are busy trying to intimidate Supreme Court Justices and doing all sorts of other crazy things so we sane people are distracted.

Violence, of course, is one of their tools of distraction (and intimidation). How can you avoid the violence and protect yourself if it comes?

  • Recognize that not all libtards are dangerous. It's the unhinged majority of them who are dangerous. They are easily identified by their rhetoric. Their language is hyperbolic, racist, and accusatory, while their claims are unrelated to reality. They call for retribution and other things that are code for hurting people.
  • Be nice to everyone. You don't have to agree with them, but simply listening and showing respect can calm them down a few degrees. Asking a question is one technique. After the unhinged libtard or socialist makes an outrageous statement, nod and say, "I had not thought of that before. May I ask you a question?" Wait for the response. Then ask a question such as, "Can you give me an example?" or "Can you name an unbiased source where I can verify your main point?" Don't push. You aren't trying to convince them, you are merely trying to get them to loosen up a bit.
  • Recognize that danger exists and identify it when it is near you. Be situationally aware, especially when in a public place. Look for things that are out of place or people who are behaving in an agitated way.
  • Prepare to defend.  Maybe you don't carry and maybe you aren't a skilled fighter. Look for anything that can be used as a weapon and pick it up. Stay physically relaxed, even in a tense situation. If you are directly assaulted or see that happen to someone else, unleash your fury on the attacking person and don't stop until they are down. Prepare yourself mentally to respond this way, long before you are in that situation. A short (10 minute) visualization session 2 or 3 times a week can work wonders.

A longer term solution would involve dismantling the socialist and libtard stincubators that have replaced our public schools and universities. There are efforts toward that being made now. For example, the Leadership Institute

See my climbing videos here:

Many people start an exercise program, then it seems like life gets in the way and they can't stick with it. It may be months or years before they try again. Because I have not missed a workout since the summer of 1977, I have some insight that can help anyone dealing with this problem.
  • Think of it (and make it) training, not exercise. Training is what you specifically do to get specific results. Exercise is something you do without that driving motivation.
  • Design a program that prioritizes hitting the muscles you can't see. While this seems counterintuitive, the improvement in your posture, "presence in a room", athletic ability, useful strength, and general well-being will become a strong motivator to continue. Your back, glutes, and hamstrings need proper development so make an extra effort there.
  • Schedule your workouts and make that time slot something you don't violate. If something is coming up that could or would cause you to miss it, then temporarily reschedule something somehow so you don't miss that workout. For example, move it and the next workout forward a day and use your rest day as a training day but the day you miss as your rest day; workouts proceed in the same order, you are just moving your rest day. Or if I need to do something in my normal morning workout time, I will usually just reschedule that session for later in the day.
  • Make it convenient and time-efficient. I have all of the training equipment I need at home. This eliminates a round trip to the gym. My typical training session takes about as much time as the typical person takes driving to and from a gym.
  • Keep your workout area uncluttered and safe to work in. Use dumbbell racks, weight trees, and similar equipment to put a lot of stuff into a little space.
  • Don't use your existing program as an excuse when you can't get to your normal equipment. When traveling, I use bands and/or body weight exercises and/or whatever equipment is handy. Once on a trip, I visited a construction site before dawn and did hanging leg raises while hanging from the lip of the roof of a dirt-mover.
  • Change something in your program periodically. Once your mind gets in a rut and you can't achieve the intensity or lose your focus or just don't "get into it" due to boredom, your results will stall or even reverse. I like to change something in each session. Maybe I reverse the order of two exercises, or maybe I add a high volume set with half the weight (or maybe a low volume set with significantly more weight). One of my favorite things to do is reduce the weight for the last set and flex the worked muscle(s) as hard as I can.
  • Don't load up on creatine just before your workout. If doing so doesn't cause you nausea, it is still not a good idea. For one thing, creatine takes 30 to 60 minutes to be absorbed (so much for those "preworkout supps"). You want creatine present in your system, and to do that just ingest creatine at various times throughout the day (even once is fine, depending on how much you can ingest at one time).
  • Don't load up on caffeine to "improve focus" or "gain energy". It's a stimulant, and part of your training involves conditioning the central nervous system; do you see the problem?
  • Don't play tunes while training. Doing this is very common among gym rats. Why do you think you do not see it in any videos of Mr. Olympia contestants? Because they need to focus!
  • Don't check your phone between sets. You need to be in a certain mental zone when training. This kind of distraction pulls you right out of it.
  • Don't use injuries as an excuse to stop training, but don't ignore them when training. Adapt to the new conditions. For example, if I have tendinitis in my right elbow and it's back/biceps day I will reduce the weight and/or reps of any exercise that pulls on those tendons. Typically, that means curls but does not include pulldowns. Pumping blood through that area by doing reduced curls will promote healing.

Sometimes, especially in a climbing gym, the topic of training comes up and I say I haven't missed a workout since 1977. A reply I sometimes hear is along the lines of how lucky I have been to have the time to do that. This reply makes a lot of assumptions. I made the time to do that, luck had nothing to do with it. Working seven twelve hour days for weeks at a time, as I did for my years as a construction contractor, did not leave me with tons of free time. Nor did devoting 40 hours per week to my business law class while also carrying a full academic load plus another 20%. Going through a nasty divorce, being in this or that relationship, relocating many times, starting a business while working full-time, and having plenty of "life happens" events are all part of that stretch of "lucky to have the time" since 1977.

There was even the weekend in which I pulled the old engine out of my Camaro starting that Friday, stripped the shortblock, put all the parts on the new shortblock, installed the new shortblock, hooked everything (fuel lines, hoses, electrical) back up, replaced the hood perfectly, and drove it to work the following Monday. All with no assistance from any other person AND I was wearing a splint on one finger because the finger bone was broken into three pieces. And STILL I did not miss a workout that weekend.

If you decide to never miss a workout, you will never miss a workout. I hope my tips helped, and I hope my own history on this topic is a motivator for you.


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

German Chocolate Cake didn't originate in Germany. It was invented for Baker's Chocolate Company by an American baker named of Samuel German. It's filled and topped with a coconut-pecan frosting, and made with sweet (high sugar) chocolate.

8. Thought for the Day

People who accept a victim mentality victimize themselves. People who assess and solve problems elevate themselves and others.

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.
