1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

  1. Quacktor Fauci "earned" a total of $1,252,000 from 2018 to 2020. This entitles him to a federal pension of $333,745 a year plus cost-of-living increases, as calculated by Open The Books. He belongs in a federal penitentiary for what he's done, but it is doubtful he will ever be indicted.
  2. Another item about the Scamdemic:
  3. Worms, anyone? (and the manufacturing plant is in India).
  4. The socialists have armed the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths to the eye teeth, plus they plan to hire nearly 90,000 more whackos instead of hiring an equivalent number of border guards, teachers, etc. They are also trying to disarm law-abiding citizens, to make us easier prey for the IRS and the flood of drug cartel criminals crossing over our former border.

    Yet, there are people who speak truth to (abused) power. Smith and Wesson Brands, Inc. President and CEO Mark Smith told House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman socialist Rep. Carolyn Maloney:

    "To be clear, a Smith and Wesson firearm has never broken into a home; a Smith and Wesson firearm has never assaulted a woman out for a late-night run in the city; a Smith and Wesson firearm has never carjacked an unsuspecting driver stopped at a traffic light. Instead, Smith and Wesson provides these citizens with the means to protect themselves and their families." Read the full article, here:
  5. Make no mistake, it isn't necessary to double the size of the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths to wring extra money from the 1% who are ultra-wealthy. The goal is to go after the lower income and middle class people who cannot afford the $1.5 million it takes just to get through tax court and after the small business owners who don't have time for fighting IRS due to working 10 hours a day and weekends too. If you are a lower income or middle class person, you should remember what "voting Democrat" means. And it aint good.
  6. Implicit in the taxation of citizens and businesses is a contract between the taxing body (e.g., a city that charges for a business license and/or sales taxes) is the city provides basic services. It should not be surprising to anyone that San Francisco, which keeps Nancy Pelosi in office, has not upheld its end of the deal. The city shakes down the businesses but provides no protection, unlike the Mafia which at least will protect your property when you pay what they demand. A local association of businesses in the Castro district of San Francisco has put the City on notice they will stop paying if they don't get something reasonably significant in return.

    The City is in breach of contract, and if the dispute went to court the City would have as its defense only the fact that it is a government entity with the power to tax. In a libtard court, that would be enough for them to prevail. And unfortunately, SF is in the Ninth District of federal courts; the Ninth District as about as fascist and idiotic as you can get. They routinely make bad decisions that violate the underlying concepts of our legal system. Yet, the aggrieved businesses would stand a good chance of prevailing even in this mental wasteland. That's because since the insurrection (summer of 2020) leading up to the coup, then Ninth Circuit and lower courts under it have repeatedly upheld the law instead of doing their usual thing of abetting criminals. A shocked conscience can take only so much.

    The real news in this fight is that there is a fight at all. SF is noted for being a fascist, pro-poverty, pro-crime cesspool of nutjobs, whackos, and retards who believe liberty is bad and fascism is good. When you see this kind of blowback even there, it's a good sign for humanity in North America.
  7. A Washington, DC Superior Court judge ruled that the city's immunity reduction jab requirement for city employees is unconstitutional. In keeping with the Orwellian language abuse, of course, the ruling refers to this jab as a "Covid vaccine". But it is good news, nonetheless. Read the full story here:

    Note that this happened in one of the most regressive (in libtard speak, they say "progressive") and corrupt cities in the country rather than in a law-abiding city situated in a free state. That, too, is good news. If such a ruling can emerge from such a morally destitute place, that bodes well for other places.
  8. Supporters for election integrity scored a major victory Friday when the Arizona Supreme Court held that Proposition 210 — a ballot initiative to undo Arizona’s new election integrity law, financed with George Soros’s money — cannot be on the November ballot due to a lack of valid signatures.
    Read the full story here:
  9. The Washington (com)Post, a major propaganda publisher, is hemorrhaging both subscribers and advertisers. They have gone so far over the top with absurdities that even the normally gullible feel insulted that anyone would expect them to believe such tripe. This trend is taking effect across other brain-damaging enterprises, such as Facebook and the Communist News Network (CNN). All of these outlets of nonsense passed along the absurdities of Centers for Disinformation Contamination (CDC) without doing even a smidgen of actual journalism to detect the obvious fraud. On top of that, they censored people who told the truth. This rejection of the propaganda outlets is very good news in multiple ways. Please encourage any subscribers you know to cancel. We can end the existence of these harmful purveyors of propaganda with just a little more effort from all of us.
  10. President Trump wants a redo of the 2020 Election due to the FBI's malfeasance and criminal misconduct over the Hunter Biden laptop issue. Apparently Trump believes that if the FBI had not done this, the vote would have gone to Trump.

    On the one hand it is sad he is saying this, because the one factor that put Biden in the White House had nothing to do with how people actually voted. It was entirely about massive election fraud, including egregious abuse of mail-in voting.

    On the other hand, it is a viable, uncontestable way out of the current mess we are in due to the coup-placed Biden and his America-hating handlers. If Trump is willing to take over at this point and take the abuse from the swamp and all its critters, that is commendable. But there is too much failure to turn around in the two years remaining, and what would have been a stellar record will look bad in the history books as if the socialists are not to blame for the multiple severe disasters they have inflicted on this (former) nation. Perhaps the best solution is to let the disease of socialism run its course, even thought that course will almost certainly put us in a coma.

Rocket Pen

The Rocket Pen Reader is an affordable, powerful reading assistant and reading tutor that erases the barriers created by dyslexia and other reading problems. It can be used privately in the classroom, avoiding stigma, thanks to the earbuds included in the kit (it can alternatively be used without earbuds).

How it teaches reading

Before the early 1980s, public schools relied on phonics to teach reading. This allowed any student to "sound out" a new, unfamiliar word and also recognize its root and thereby often grasp its meaning even without a dictionary. Then schools switched to the "Look See" method, which treated words as individual pictograms to memorize. The results were dismal, plummeting the USA from the top of the literacy ranks to the bottom among industrialized countries.

The Rocket Pen puts phonics back in.

It also adds a context-driven dictionary and a context-driven thesaurus, both powerful tools for improving reading skills. See the reading tutor functions in the chart below.

It is the answer

The Rocket Pen Reader is the answer for helping the reading-challenged in the classroom, special needs classes, home-schooling, and adult education. Because of its mobile-friendly design, you can carry it with you and use it anywhere. Not only does it read to you, it helps you learn to read (for example, by showing you the syllable breakdown and the definition). It is super easy to use, no need to watch a dozen videos to figure out what to do.

Based on the highly successful ReadingPen 2 and vastly superior to the cPen Reader Pen, the RocketPen is the latest generation in a reading tutor scanning pen. It is a quantum leap or two beyond anything else on the market. This amazing device retails for $499, sells for $399 on Amazon and, but is on sale now for a limited time only via our eBay store at only $379!

3. Brainpower tip


The Prosperity Reduction Act (aka, the Inflation Acceleration Act) contained massive spending on intermittent (called "green" by spin doctors) energy. See this video to understand more fully that folly:

The process of adequate thinking includes understanding the basic facts about a subject. People who push or support  "green energy" do not understand the basic facts of that subject. If they did, they would not refer to the high-pollution intermittent energy sources as "green".

Yet here we have libtards not only failing to think adequately, if at all, about coal and oil versus intermittent energy sources, we have libtards in powerful positions shoving these high-pollution intermittent energy sources at us without questioning the basic economics, basic ecology, and basic logistics of doing so.

Stupidity is not a "them" issue when the ultra-stupid have unfettered power to do ultra-stupid things to the rest of us. Stupidity is an epidemic that hugely affects all of us in a strongly negative way. The ultra-stupid have become ultra-powerful, thanks to an epic level of lying, cheating, stealing, incivility, and bullying. There is a way to stop them

The ultra-stupid depend mainly upon brazen lies spread through their propaganda machine. They scare and manipulate the large segment of the population that is thinking-challenged (TCd) support them. The vast majority of these TCs are decent, honest folks. The problem is they are also gullible due to lack of adequate thinking.

If you say you want to reduce pollution through increasing our proportion of green energy, that sounds good on the surface. It does not sound good to those who are informed as to what this entails. To the TC,  green energy sounds great!

Now suppose you encounter a TC who tells you how wonderful wind energy is because "it doesn't pollute". You now have an opportunity to deprogram someone who is presently supporting the ultra-stupid. Say something like, "I don't have the numbers at my fingertips, but I would like us to look them up together. Do you know how many tons of CO2 are generated to erect just one wind turbine? OK, how much fossil fuel is burned to maintain it over its lifespan? Well, it turns out there's no appreciable difference between burning coal to generate the same number of kilowatts versus using wind. And coal plants don't have the deleterious effects on wildlife that wind farms do." You can apply the same technique to disabusing them of the solar power myth.

What about Covid and masks? The ultra stupid have been telling the TCs to wear masks, and many TCs do that to (so they believe) stop the spread of Covid. So ask, "Are you wearing that mask to prevent the transmission of Covid?" The answer will be in the affirmative. That's when you say even if the Covid virus were to triple in size, it would go right through a mask. "If you're really concerned about not spreading Covid and you want to wear something inexpensive to help in that regard, try pulling a plastic bag over your head and tying it tightly around your neck. That does stop Covid. But maybe there are side effects. What do you think?"

When a TC says there's no evidence that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump, ask them to explain how Biden, who came in a distant fourth in the primaries and had always been soundly defeated in previous runs, somehow managed to get a record number of votes exceeding even those of the highly articulate, very charismatic Obama? Pick a few other obvious anomalies from the coup and ask for an explanation. You won't get one, because they never thought past the lies told to them by the lamestream media.

My point here is that when you encounter a TC who has been manipulated into supporting the ultra-stupid, you need to manipulate them right back over to the reality zone. Remember, the thinking-challenged are not stupid. They just have problems going into a state of thinking. Once you ge them thinking, they will see how they have been duped. Stimulate them into thinking mode via some questions, making sure to do so in a respectful way, and you will free them from the control of the ultra-stupid. When the ultra-stupid lose control over this big demographic, they will also lose their political ability to inflict their ultra-stupidity on the rest of us.

4. Finance tip

Now with the Prosperity Reduction Act (aka, the Inflation Acceleration Act) having been signed into law by Brainless Biden, the federal debt will become worse faster. A few ways to help curb that:

  • Phase out, then ban the sale of Monsanto wheat, corn, and soy. Ban the sale of seed oils, vegetable oils, and hydrogenated oils for human consumption. Correctly categorize HFC, processed cane sugar, and similar hedonic forms of sugar as the Class 1 drugs that they are and regulate them accordingly. This will cut disease rates dramatically (I estimate 90%), thereby reducing one of the biggest drags on our economy.
  • Shut down the CDC, as it does more harm than good. Shut down the FDA, as it is primarily Monsanto's enforcement arm against organic farmers and organic dairies. Shut down the FBI, as it has devolved into the Socialist Party's political opponent hit squad instead of a law enforcement agency. Shut down the Department of "Education", since it has shown itself to actually be the Department of Retardation. Eliminating these harmful, criminal agencies will free up funds that can go toward paying for the socialist pet projects such as "green" (translated to English, "high-pollution") energy.
  • Eliminate the 1040 tax and abolish the IRS. The compliance costs produce such economic damage that the net effect is a reduction of federal receipts. With the 1040 and the IRS gone, federal revenue could easily double.

Socially, legally, and financially, all of this makes perfect sense for the nation. But you can see the problem, right? The tiny minority that benefits from each of the status quo items above has big money at stake and will do whatever it takes to protect that gravy train. It's all part of "the swamp" that our duly elected President declared he would drain, as he ran for his first term. That declaration is why the coup took place, and it's why the invasion of his home took place.

We will not see the looting significantly reduced until we restore the Rule of Law. We will not restore the Rule of Law until we restore elections. And even if we restore elections, elected officials will be at huge personal risk if they dare challenge the administrative state. We need to deprive the administrative state of its base of support. What is its base of support? Arriving at the correct answer begins with recognizing we have a corporatocacy. Thus the jokes about Exxon laying off members of Congress.

How do you fight a corporatocracy? With your consumer dollars. If we all boycott, for example, Monsanto GMO products (I consume exactly ZERO of these), we starve that dragon to death. If we all practice health care, we bring Big Pharma down because we aren't buying their products anymore. If we all ignore the lamestream media (don't buy their newspapers or magazines, don't do their newsfeeds, don't do their antisocial media, etc.), then the lamestream media no longer can act as a mass brainwashing machine; they not only become irrelevant, they shrivel up and die.

Sure, if only a few thousand people vote with their consumer dollars the effect is negligible. But if the effect goes viral, then we kill the corporatocracy and take our country back. If you personally review to whom you supply your dollars and get three other people to do the same, well, you can see where I am going with this.

Donating money to RINO campaigns rife with the same old broken promises won't change anything. Participating in our fake elections will help a little. But the big guns in this fight are your consumer dollars. Take aim wisely.

See my climbing videos here:

The socialists insist that they have a vaccine for Covid-19 and everyone needs to get injected with it to protect the "vaccinated" from the unvaccinated. Now, follow the illogic here. If it's a vaccine and if it protects the "vaccinated", why would the "vaccinated" care whether others get it or not?

You cannot have it both ways. Either you are protected by the "vaccine" and the "vaccination" status of others is irrelevant or you have been given a non-vaccine that does not protect you.

  • If it's the former, why not let those of us who are "unvaccinated" die from our stubbornness, thereby leaving behind a better, enlightened society of people who do what is right?
  • If it's the latter, what exactly did you get shot up with and why are so many people dropping dead from it (far more than are dropping dead from Covid)?

The Centers for Disease Disinformation recently turned down the intensity of its disinformation campaign, backing away from its litany of absurdities though not fully recanting them. This is good news, albeit late by a couple of years.

When the news first came out about an alleged pandemic, my immediate response was, "Bring it on." That wasn't based on bravado, but on the fact I do not participate in the disease lifestyle. In fact, I practice health care very consistently.

Despite being born with an immune deficiency (low gamma globulin) that was not solved until my mid-50s (thank you, Dr. Rick Cohen), I have not been sick since 1971. Not once. This, despite having worked absurdly long hours (e.g., seven 12 hour days in a row) in construction, having relocated often (I've lived in 14 states), having gone through an epically awful divorce, and having done extensive travel (I have visited 46 of our 50 states). And let us not forget the 17 years during which I was a target of egregious abuse by the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths in a cover-up of a $103 million heist by IRS muckety muck Kevin Brown despite a ruling by a federal judge I had done nothing wrong and owed no additional taxes--IRS relies on such abuse to drive people to an early grave (they have a lot of success in doing that).

Fake vaccine is not the answer

Some magical shot that its own advocates admit doesn't work (by dint of trying to force everyone to get it) is not the answer to disease prevention or resistance. So what is the answer? Here are a few things on my list:

  • A diet based on superfoods, and devoid of meat, wheat, corn, soy, seed oils, and vegetable oils.
  • Eliminating glyphosate from my diet by eliminating meat, wheat, corn, and soy from my diet.
  • A training regimen that stimulates the adaptive response nearly every day via sessions that involve a high degree of metabolic stress, muscular damage, and time under tension.
  • A sense of calm and well-being derived from personal achievement and competence instead of social approval.
  • Social relationships that are real, not based on virtue signaling, ideology, or approval, with people who don't care about those things and who exhibit a high degree of personal achievement and competence.
  • Consistent bedtimes and waking times.
  • Not skipping meals.
  • Not skipping workouts.
  • Supplementation with Vitamin D3 and whatever else I need to optimize my health and athletic performance.
  • Focusing my mental and emotional energy on things that have value.

Regarding the glyphosate, read this article:


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

Free Lunch Syndrome is a mental illness in which the sufferer believes he or she is entitled to something for nothing. It's closely related to Money Grows On Trees Disease, in which the sufferer has no concept of what things actually cost so doesn't mind spending other people's money.


8. Thought for the Day

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.


Please forward this eNL to others.


The purpose of this publication is to inform and empower its readers (and save you money!). The views expressed in this e-newsletter are generally not shared by socialists or other brainwashed individuals. That's because those fools live in an alternate reality and have not bothered to learn the basics of how life works. They cannot do basic math, cannot apply logic, and cannot be bothered to learn the basic facts relevant to any topic that they are passionate about.

Except where noted, this e-newsletter is entirely the work of Mark Lamendola. Anything presented as fact can be independently verified. Where sources are not given, they are readily available to anyone who makes the effort. Mark provides information from either research or his own areas of established expertise. Sometimes, what appears to be a personal opinion is the only possibility when applying sound logic--reason it out before judging! (That said, some personal opinions do appear on occasion).

Personal note from Mark: I value each and every one of you, and I hope that shows in the diligent effort I put into writing this e-newsletter. It is an act of service, almost no money is generated for me through this effort. Thank you for being a faithful reader. Please pass this newsletter along to others.
