1. Good News: Where the Intel is Good

Miscellaneous news

  1. Remember the coup that got us into the mess we're in now? The 2020 Presidential was clearly stolen, with the same outcome as if we'd lost a war. Sidney Powell, who was prominent in fighting this fraud, came under intense legal attack for doing so. She pushed election integrity, something Nutcase Nancy calls "voter suppression" (similarly, Nutcase believes it's a peaceful protest when you loot stores and kill police officers, but it's insurrection when the guards invite you into the Capitol Building and you go in). It wasn't until March of 2022 that Powell was finally vindicated in court.

    And now a year later (actually on 30 March), she's speaking at a Project Pureblood event. Project Pureblood is an online community for those who have refused to be injected with the spike protein stimulating, immunity reducing, myocarditis inducing clot shot that offers zero protection against Covid but is amazingly called "the vaccine" for Covid.
  2. Hatred is getting a strong pushback in Florida:
  3. ESG, aka Extra Stupid Government, is a mental illness-driven, ignorance-based system of forcing woke-ism onto businesses. The Brainless Administration came up with some kind of ESG investment rule, and the Senate voted to block it.

Defending against socialism

Socialism is an economic system in which the government controls the means of production and distribution, and the results have always been disastrous. Implementing socialism requires the loss of personal freedom, personal security, personal opportunity, and government accountability. Communism is socialism without property rights.

  1. Remember the McCloskeys? Now the AG of MO is going after the Circuit Attorney who so egregiously violated their civil rights. Read about it here:
  2. Walt Disney must be spinning in his grave. Perhaps connecting him to a turbine will generate enough electricity to power the eastern United States. The family-friendly company he founded has become a sewer of woke-ism and other toxic ideologies. If he were alive today, you can bet he'd be suing the corporation for using his name. Walt would certainly approve of the bill that Governor DeSantis signed on Monday, 27FEB2023, revoking the corporation's status as a self-governing power (over its 56 acre "empire"--lots of special privileges beyond private ownership) and putting it under a state board. Read the full story in any number of places, including this one:
  3. People living in the free states are rightfully worried about escapees from the communist ones contaminating their society with their libtard ideas and behaviors. A South Carolina has proposed a "Yankee Tax" as a bulwark against being flooded by comrades from New York. While on the surface this seems logical, one must remember the refugees are fleeing communism not necessarily exporting it. And you can't make a law targeting a specific group or individual, such as people from the People's Republic of New York but not people from the free state of Tennessee. Common sense tells us that people are fleeing the cesspool states because they find conditions there unbearable. It does not follow that they wish to establish the same conditions in free states. The best approach is to welcome such people, and help them to enjoy life in a free state.
  4. Even in Chicago, where socialism and corrupt government have been rampant for decades, the voters had enough of Lori Light-in-the-head. The revulsion over this idiot was so strong and so widespread that even a large turnout of the dead voters couldn't keep her in office. In fact, 84% of Chicagoans voted against her. This development bodes well for those who wish to end the socialist occupation of America and restore the Rule of Law.
  5. The booting of Light-in-the-head is one of a series of developments that are eroding communist control of America. It was less than a year ago when Nutcase Nancy was booed off the stage when she made an appearance at a music festival in the People's Republic of New York. We owe those communists a debt of gratitude for causing Nutcase to step down as Speaker of the House.
  6. Federal agents arrested an associate of Hunter Biden. If he squeals, the resulting legal mess will dampen Brainless' ability to further damage the country. A major setback for the socialists, a major victory for freedom and the Rule of Law.

The ongoing Covid scam

  1. The idiots who are wearing the Chinese-made masks in a vain effort to protect themselves from Covid-19 (which has long been extinct) are poisoning the air of the people around them. Every time they exhale, their air stream contains toxic chemicals embedded in the fibers of the mask. We need to ask people to take their stupidity elsewhere. This is the new smoking, and they don't have a right to force it on others.
  2. The death data shown a higher death rate with each cycle of "vax". Why is this? The "vax" stimulates the body to produce a spike protein. Each time this happens, the immune system is desensitized (to an extent) to the spike protein. This "tolerance" phenomenon is the basis for allergy shots; you train the immune system to "get used to" specific allergens. But when you train the immune system to get used to specific aspects of pathogens, it reacts more slowly (if at all) to those pathogens. There is zero upside to getting these shots (they do not protect you against anything, since they target extinct viruses), and the downsides are many. Do not get vaxxed, and if you have been vaaxxed don't repeat the mistake. Each repetition makes things worse, not better.

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


I've been asked several times what Joe Biden's IQ, if he has one, is.

If you look at his academic career and the fact he earned a law degree, you might conclude his IQ is at least average. You would be wrong. Those achievements rely mostly on doing everything your instructor tells you to and paying attention in class. But still, there is an IQ floor that is well above the moron level. Does this mean Biden has an IQ above the moron level today? No. It means half a century ago, he hadn't suffered a stroke or other brain damage. Yet.

Biden is demonstrably stupid today, and not just because he speaks in a garbled manner and is often confused. Remember, he was the only person on Team Obama to object to going into that Pakistani compound to take out Osama Bin Laden. That's not the only indicator of his abject stupidity, but it's a good one.

Don't be fooled

Be careful assuming that other people are intelligent, simply because they have this or that degree or because they regale you with unverifiable stories of their brilliant accomplishments (those are probably made up from other people's accomplishments). Stupid people compensate for their stupidity by gaslighting others, misusing words, outright lying, and other behaviors designed to make the other person seem intellectually inferior to them either in a specific instance or generally.

You can easily leap to the conclusion that "Frank" is smarter than you are because he just made you wrong about something, when the reality that Frank is an idiot trying to hide that fact by using deception to make other people look foolish. When other people around Frank routinely appear foolish, or you feel this way around Frank, then Frank is the problem.

IQ danger

If someone like this suddenly wants to be your pal, watch out. This person will drag you down and actually reduce your IQ by either undermining your confidence or causing you to chew up CPU cycles sorting through the BS. There are a lot of people like "Frank" in this world. It's not the stupidity that's the problem, it's the corrosive effect of the compensating behavior.

What to do

You can simply avoid a casual acquaintance who acts this way, or even tell them you don't want to be around them. But what if the person is a relative, neighbor, coworker, or fellow member of an organization you are active in? Avoidance doesn't work. Confront the behavior, not the person. Tell "Frank" very bluntly that you don't appreciate being disrespected. And then say exactly which behavior you find offensive. "Uncle Frank, you are family but you are obnoxious. You disrespected me when you showed up late and then said I was confused about the time. I wasn't confused about the time." He'll come back with some kind of defense. Tell him, "Stop. I made my point." If you call him out every time he engages in compensation while also making a point of not being critical of him in other ways, he'll stop compensating.

Well, you can't do this if your boss is a compensating idiot, right? Wrong. Your boss is probably the one person to whom you must stand up the most. Just do it in a way that shows confidence on your part without embarrassing him in front of others. "Frank, you know that wasn't my fault. I don't want to hear you blame me for it again. Are we clear?" I know this works, because I've had to "manage up" more than one compensating idiot boss. And don't backbite.

His IQ is...?

So what is Biden's IQ? Longtime readers are familiar with the concepts of "negative IQ" and "effective intelligence". A person with a negative IQ does stupid, harmful things and therefore exhibits less effective intelligence than a box of rocks. Given the stupid things Joe Biden has said and done in the past couple of decades and the immense harm he has done since the coup, I put his IQ at about negative 150.

That is about three standard deviations below zero. Two standard deviations above 100 would put you in Mensa. Two standard deviations below 100 would make you a moron. So I don't like it when people call Joe Biden a moron, that is giving him entirely too much credit.

4. Finance tip

USA, like most western nations, is living on financial fumes. And the government routinely lies to the public about it. Debt is corrosive, and we have a massive and rapidly growing federal debt. The national flat tax (Social Security "contribution") helps offset this, but the national regressive tax (the 1040 system) actually costs more than it brings in (due to needless compliance costs). Various fees, taxes, and tariffs levied by the federal government on states, corporations, and individuals make up the balance of federal income.

The difference between outgo (including paying the interest on the debt) and income is made up by creating money out of thin air. As this supply of funny money grows relative to the basket of goods and services, we say the money supply is "inflated". This is where the concept of inflation comes from. It means the currency is debauched, just as in Roman times it was debauched by shaving the silver off of coins (this practice is why our dimes and quarters are ridged, because they used to be silver).

Inflation is a tax. And it's the highest tax paid by nearly any state, corporation, or individual. It's driven strongly by the amount of federal debt. That debt is supported by 157 million working Americans, many of whom can barely make ends meet. The official debt figure is now past $31 trillion (12 zeroes), which works out to 31/157 x 6 zeroes or about 200,000 dollars per worker. Most people don't have $200,000 lying around. In fact, th average net worth in American is only $121,700 -- and that's with the multi-billionaires thrown into the calculations. Many people die with a net negative net worth (they have more debts than assets).

But wait, it gets worse. Due to accounting tricks (such as double-counting Social Security as Bill Clinton did when he "stopped the debt from growing"), the actual debt figure is much higher. When you add in the unfunded obligations, you're almost to a quadrillion dollars! In fact, another two years of Bidenomics with a socialist controlled Senate could easily put us past that. Here's an article that explains what the real debt figure is: And that takes us to about $630,000 per worker. Yeah, that's really a "how dead is he" situation because we can't sustain $200,000 per worker. And this is just the cost of the federal debt per worker. It does not include the cost of the federal, state, county, and city governments per worker. This debt isn't demand-driven, it's corruption-driven.

So what can we do about this? The corruption is so deeply imbedded in the system, we really can't fight it. We can refuse to vote for socialists, but this system converts good people into bad ones through bullying and other tactics. For example, let's say you ran for Congress and won. The very minute you bring some corruption to light, you will be told to drop it or you will never get a committee assignment. With no such assignment, you have no value to your party and you won't be funded in the next election. You will likely be "primaried" out of office. The same game is played on Senators.

We really have zero representation among our "elected" officials. Even if we did, they would be powerless to stop the deep state and powerless to stop their corporate sponsors.

I think one way to have some effect is to compose a short letter outlining the above facts, and start sending it out to each Board member of the main lobbying firms. These are Big Pharma, big law firms, Big Agra, and big military contractors. These are the ones who, in our corporatacracy, actually control the government. What about just boycotting them? That won't work, because there's a vast pool of morons who will fail to vote with their consumer dollars. But letting each Board member know the facts, without implying any sort of threat (e.g., "I won't buy your products anymore"), may be productive.

Aside from that, don't waste money yourself. Analyze your spending to see if there's fat to cut. That doesn't mean have a joyless life. For example, I spend money on climbing and it's not a cheap sport. But I don't buy mocha lattes and I don't stand in front of the refrigerator staring in while the door is open.

Think along these lines (take this list and make it longer):

  • Do what it takes to save and invest money on a regular basis (for example, auto-invest $300/month into a mutual fund).
  • Stay away from medical "care" by practicing health care.
  • Fix and repair things, if you have the tools and the skill. If you don't have the tools and the skill, find someone who has those and work out a quid pro quo. Or acquire the tools and the skill.
  • If your car is a gas hog, start looking at what to replace it with and then this fall when the car sales are hot fix that problem.

5. Security tip

I don't know about all metro areas, but over the past two years in mine there has been a marked change in how people drive. They are hyper-aggressive, engaging in behavior such as tailgating, drag racing, driving 90 miles per hour on the Interstate (within city limits, mind you), weaving, and basically everything stupid a driver can do. It's as if they took an offensive driving course instead of a defensive driving course. They make up probably 10% of drivers, but they terrorize and endanger the other 90%.

Due to the chronic police shortages across the nation, these people don't get pulled over. If the police weren't so busy responding to the "accidents" these idiots cause, they could nail a few of them. I used to dislike how police seemed to attack drivers for being a little too fast (especially on a long and empty road) and hand out tickets as if those tickets were candy and every day is Halloween. I really don't want a return to that, but this current situation is getting people killed.

Sadly, my car is not equipped with a rocket-powered grenade. What else can I do? What can you do?

  • Stay out of the passing lane. This is the lane they believe is "theirs" and they believe this lane permits adding 30MPH to the posted speed limit.
  • Don't play games with them. They are not rational, so anything you do is likely to instigate even more irrational behavior.
  • Don't try to stay out of their way by also doing 55 down a residential street or doing 90 where it's posted 60 and the traffic is fairly heavy.
  • Don't let them rattle you. Maintain present course and speed. Don't slow down and don't speed up. Doing anything in response to them gives them power.
  • Don't look at them.
  • Stay out of "the passing lane".f they are behind you flashing their lights, change lanes only if it's safe and then do so at a slightly slower than normal rate.
  • If they are tailgating you, tap your emergency blinkers once. They'll think you tapped your brakes.
  • If you have a passenger, ask that person to dial 911 and phone in the license number, description of the car, estimated speed, highway name and direction, and approximate location.
  • If you don't have a passenger, try to snap a photo of the car. When you next stop, call it in.

If you don't engage the crazy driver, you should remain "just a car" in their mind. That means you are just an object to go around. But there is always a chance this crazy driver, who is in such a hurry, will suddenly find the time to attack you. One response is to pull in front of you and slam on the brakes. Change lanes and go around without looking at them. They should get tired of this after a few attempts. But it could turn out that you can't avoid a collision or they simply follow you to wherever you are going.

This is why I carry two weapons in my car. One is a 5 cell flashlight. The reason police officers carry 5 cell flashlights has nothing to do with battery life.  I can disarm any knife-using attacker by just swinging it onto their forearm (and shattering the bones in the process). Or, I can drop down and break at least one kneecap. I also carry a 14 inch folding knife. It can do a lot of damage. If you watch the YouTube videos of martial artists from different styles facing off in their white gees, you will notice there is hardly any real action for the first full minute. You'll see some feints and some tentative jabs. That's wrong.

If you're forced to get out of your car, don't stand there exchanging threats or seeing who will throw the first punch. This person called it, you answer full-force. Don't hesitate, don't telegraph, don't wind up to throw a punch. Move decisively at the person and hit very hard. For example, step forward then twist sharply to jam your closest hip into him and at the same time bring your arm up and drive your fist into his throat. Follow by jamming a thumb in his closest eye, then grabbing his closest ear and yanking it as hard as you can.

If you have never practiced such moves, there's a good chance you will execute them poorly or freeze in the clinch. So practice the sequence repeatedly until you have it. Practice for half an hour, twice a week. With or without a partner, practice this. Once it feels "burned in" then develop a second sequence. Practice with your opponent facing directly at you, facing a bit to the right, and facing a bit to the left. Practice walking up as if you're not a threat, and then suddenly launching when you are close enough.

You should also be prepared to get out of your vehicle to help someone who is under threat by a road rager who followed them or forced them to pull over. The same thing applies. Calmly walk up, and then go into vicious dog mode.

Obviously, you don't want to waste time getting into fights with strangers. You were on your way somewhere, too. That's why you don't want to antagonize them while the cars are still moving. But if they force you into a potential confrontation, become totally aggressive so that you do the hurting rather than being hurt.

Some cool climbing  videos:

See all of my climbing videos here:

In his 2002 book, AbSolution, Shawn Phillips said that someone asked him, "What exercises do you do for abs?" He replied, "All of them!"

What he meant by this was it doesn't make much sense to treat your "abs" (abdominus rectus), aka, the 6-pack muscle as something you develop outside of a complete program. Yet, the question comes up again and again about the one or two exercises that are "best for abs".

The rectus abdominus is one of many muscles that form a sort of cage around the area between your heart and your hips. This is commonly called the core. I'm a tad leery about using the word "core" because it means different things to different people. To many, it means everything but your limbs. To others, it means the area I just described. I don't think you can talk about the "core" in terms of function and leave out the glutes. These are the biggest muscle in the human body. You need strong glutes to have any kind of power (and they help attract the opposite sex). Take all of this into consideration plus the fact that some of the back muscles insert way up into the neck. So where is the "cut line"? You really can't draw these kinds of lines, we aren't built as modules that snap together.

Let's look at what this "core" does. If I were to punch you with a Shotokan style of reverse punch, the force would not come from my shoulder. It would come from something much, much bigger. Namely, the earth. Here's how that works. I twist my hip, driving my foot into the ground. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Now the earth pushes back. That force travels back up my leg to my hip, but if my core is just jelly it largely dissipates there. With a solid core, however, the force is transmitted across the core and through my arm to !!WHAM!! knock you into next week. It's not the abs doing that. It is the whole structure.

When weight training, the core stabilizes the spine. Stabilization takes all of those muscles, including the obliques on the side, that whole panoply of muscles in the back, the muscles that form your (very important) pelvic floor, and your glutes. The rectus abdominus is but one actor in a large cast. Performing squats will engage the entire cast. Shawn specifically mentioned squats and deadlifts, and if you understand the job of the core you can understand why he did.

A strong core is critical to good posture, and simply standing tall will engage your core (give it some exercise). I stabilize my spine during most of my isolation exercises by locking those front, side, back, and floor muscles of my core.

If you practice a sport in which core strength plays a major role (climbing, for example), you may find there is no reason to work your abs separately. They already get enough exercise, and they must function as part of a unit anyhow.

 If your abs are especially weak and thus you want to work them separately, make sure first you are doing your squats. On a separate day, you might want to do these exercises:

  • Hanging leg raises.
  • Crunches.
  • Reverse crunches.

What about planks? I tried doing a plank and after running up 5 minutes on the clock determined it's too lame. Sit-ups are also not good to do, and you'll develop back problems if you stick with them.

  • Many folks who climb at my level won't do separate ab work; there is nothing gained by this from a usable strength perspective because the whole unit needs to be strong.
  • Competitive bodybuilders generally don't do them either, because symmetry is critical and isolating abs works against that.
  • There is a real risk if you over work the abs. What will happen is the center of the abdominus recuts will separate and you get what's called "doming". You get a protrusion that is unsightly and can lead to functional problems over time.

It is better to forget about separate "ab" exercises. Use your core to protect your spine while doing your squats and other hard work. There are no shortcuts or some magic exercise. If you want great abs, you must "do all of them" as Shawn said.



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

Members of Congress do not actually represent us. They are told how to vote, and those who do not go along with the "leadership" get punished. The punishments include such things as an office downgrade, a parking place reassignment (as far from their office as possible), being removed from committees (very much a gut punch to their political career), election funding denied (this happened to my excellent Congressman, and now I have a communist in his place), and "primarying" them (running another candidate against them in the primary election).


8. Thought for the Day

An employer can fire someone for using a firearm to stop a criminal from committing a long series of violent crimes, but nobody fires an employee for abetting a criminal by dint of failing to use a firearm. This seems backwards to me.
