February 15- In 1898, the USS Maine explodes in Havana Harbor,
Cuba, providing a pretext for the United States to declare war on Spain. In
1933, an assassin bungles an attempt to shoot FDR during a speech in Miami,
Florida, but does shoot and fatally wound the mayor of Chicago, who was in the
car from which the president was speaking. In 1946, ENIAC, the first
general-purpose electronic computer, is unveiled. In 1971, the first
celebration of Washington's Birthday takes place on the third Monday of
February, rather than the actual anniversary of February 22. Although Lincoln
idolaters have sought to mischaracterize the new schedule as somehow making the
occasion a combined celebration of Washington and Lincoln, the holiday is still
officially dedicated exclusively to Washington's Birthday. In 1989, the Soviet
Union announces that all its troops have left Afghanistan. In 2003, protests
against the impending U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq take place in 800
cities worldwide. BBC News estimates the participation of between 6 and 10
million people in what proves to be the largest peace demonstration in history.

Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick Was NOT
Bludgeoned With A Fire Extinguisher On January 6. What Does That Tell
The exposure of this false narrative element offers a great
(and rare) opportunity, which must be seized with both hands.
In the face of the inconvenient facts reported above, the
absurd notion has been floated that Sicknick's stroke was
caused by "exposure to a chemical agent, possibly pepper spray or bear
spray" (as stated on
page). This pretense is a effort to use Sicknick's reassurance to
his brother the evening of the 6th-- in which Sicknick said that he was
fine and had merely been subjected to a couple of pepper sprays during
the tumult-- to preserve the false narrative that Sicknick died as a
consequence of the 6 January events.
Personally, I'm willing to go out on a limb and assume with
confidence that neither pepper spray nor bear spray has ever been found
liable for prompting a stroke... and especially not a day after
The plain fact is, Brian Sicknick was in no way a fatal
victim of the protest at the Capitol on January 6th. This "pepper spray"
pretense simply underscores the importance of the contrary fiction to
the false "deadly riots" narrative and those behind it.
And the fiction that Sicknick was killed by election-fraud
protestors (whatever they are called by the fake narrative managers) is
HUGELY important to those flogging it through the public square. It is
only on the basis of Sicknick's pretended murder that the
protestors can be accused of a "deadly" riot/insurrection/whatever and
subjected to all the opprobrium which has been
opportunistically directed against them and their views.
Four people actually died on January 6th at the Capitol. All victims
were from among the protestors and you can't effectively smear anyone
over harms caused only to themselves. It has been solely on the basis of
Brian Sicknick's alleged death at the hands of the protestors that the
violent/intolerable/must-be-rightly-suppressed agenda-item chorus has
been made possible.
So, the first benefit of the truth coming out about
Sicknick's death is that every single one of the narrative threads of
the Democrats and their allies mining the "deadly" theme can be
denounced, hooted-down and snipped. There is no shortage of work to do
on that front-- despite the truth about Sicknick's death being now
nearly two weeks exposed, the abuse of the lie that exposure revealed
has continued unabated, even being prominently on display in the Senate
"impeachment" trial last week. But it can be done.
NOW, ON TO THE SECOND THING... for which let's first be
clear about the fact that Brian Sicknick's untimely death-- he was
only 42, a remarkably young age at which to suffer a fatal stroke-- is
truly a tragedy. It's a tragedy for his family, and also possibly for
the rest of us as well.
Sicknick was an ardent Trump supporter. As a first-hand witness to events at the Capitol
he might have been a
very valuable contributor to a more complete and accurate picture of
those events than the one we may be getting without him. (One is obliged
to wonder if the same might not also be said about the other two
first-hand witnesses from among the ranks of the police to have
bizarrely died soon after January 6th, Howard Liebengood and Jeffrey
both of whom apparently committed suicide, with no explanation
offered as to what was suddenly weighing so heavily on their minds or
consciences, or had depressed them to so profound an extent, as to cause
them to take their own lives.)
But Brian Sicknick's death is not a tragic symbol
of "domestic terrorism" or "violent insurrection". Whatever you care to
call the collection of varyingly irate Americans at the Capitol on
January 6th, they didn't kill Brian Sicknick.
Furthermore, on the actual record of events, there's no
credible way in which Brian Sicknick could possibly have been mistaken
for such a victim. Nonetheless, as noted above, Sicknick was portrayed as one-- indeed,
the only one, since all the handful of actual fatalities on
January 6th were from among the ranks of the protestors.
Sicknick has been portrayed as that tragic victim of the
protestors relentlessly and hyperbolically, by every mainstream media
voice there is, for weeks and weeks. He has been the singular "bloody
shirt" waved by partisan opportunists who have been using that pretext
to incite violence against their political opponents and call for a
massive trampling on civil liberties nationwide.
And it has all been a lie.
SO HERE'S THE BIG BENEFIT and the real point of this little recital: THIS time,
and in THIS lie, the
generators of the false narrative have been caught, in real time.
What that means is NOT just that the "deadly
insurrectionists" and "domestic terrorists" bs can be debunked (and more
importantly, denounced as a "fake news"-supported fraudulent pretext for
assaulting America's core political and philosophical foundation of
individual liberty and complete freedom of conscience).That's fine, and
important, but only the starting point by which this slip can be
productively exploited by the good guys.
The BIG opportunity here is to use the exposure of
the "Brian Sicknick murder" lie to robustly awaken Kool-Aid-besotted
Americans to other lies by the same propaganda cabal.
Point out that it having been proven that the heavily and
indefensibly-flogged Brian Sicknick story was a deliberate lie, all
other assertions by these same folks-- especially those made in the same
monolithic, no-dissent-acknowledged way-- must be suspect at the least,
if not taken as false by default.
Likewise, it having been proven that the MSM and those
government officials of a certain political bent are liars in service to
corrupt purposes, it can be readily and effectively argued that they
have been lying about there being no evidence of election fraud--
certainly insofar as to get the previously close-eyed to open up and
actually look at the evidence (a
good presentation of some of which can be found here-- although one
must wait through a lot of banter among the presenters to get to it
And while we're at it, let's not forget the stories these
same liars have spun about "Russiagate"; the "Navalny
poisoning"; the "Skripal
poisoning"; the Assad "chemical weapons attack"; the "imminent
threat from Qasem Suleimani"; the nature and necessary solutions to the
financial crisis of 2007-8;
the events of 9/11;
the income tax...
Ok, put a pin in those things and we'll circle back. One
corruption-monster into a pine box at a time.
For now, hammer on the C19 and election frauds. And
seriously-- let's put these frauds and false narratives into boxes and
nail shut the lids.
“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate
agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they
want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the
roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a
physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power
concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
P.S. ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SUBJECT, Joe Biden and his
handlers have been pushing the notion of "equity" (as a replacement for
"equality under the law"). I want to make sure I have the definition
down (or recommend one, as may be needed...).
Here's my take on the word, and you correct me if I'm
wrong: "Equity" means that if you are as productive as I am in
satisfying needs for which our neighbors are willing to pay, then we
both end up with the same amount of money. Right?

creative self in sending and "selling" these links. Do memes; make

If you pay attention to the news and train yourself to

can make use in awakening other Americans to the virtues of having
the income tax correctly administered. Please, for my sake, for your
own sake, for the sake of your children and their future, make that

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from
learning the truth about the "income tax")
FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when
CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a
concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This
effort involves official government websites and press releases
touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

Tim Kendrick has posted
on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue

the cost of a cheap paperback.
Thus, even though I post it here below, Tim's very
thoughtful personal resolution and encouragement to others is
just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be
conscious of the fact that I can't do what I do without support.
No one is to feel any pressure from it; if it moves anyone to

EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to
believe about something as entrenched and significant as the
income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

If you enjoyed the Global War on Terror, you’re going
to love the new War on Domestic Terror! It’s just like the original Global War
on Terror, except that this time the “Terrorists” are all “Domestic Violent
Extremists” (“DVEs”), “Homegrown Violent Extremists” (“HVEs”), “Violent
Conspiracy-Theorist Extremists” (“VCTEs”), “Violent Reality Denialist
Extremists” (VRDEs”), “Insurrectionary Micro-Aggressionist Extremists”
(“IMAEs”), “People Who Make Liberals Feel Uncomfortable” (“PWMLFUs”), and anyone
else the Department of Homeland Security wants to label an “extremist” and slap
a ridiculous acronym on.
According to a “National
Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin” issued by the DHS on January 27,
these DCEs, HVEs, VCTEs, VRDEs, IMAEs, and PWMLFUs are
“ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the
exercise of governmental authority” and other “perceived grievances
fueled by false narratives.” They are believed to be “motivated by a
range of issues, including anger over Covid-19 restrictions, the 2020
election results, police use of force,” and other dangerous “false
narratives” (e.g., the existence of the “deep state,” “herd immunity,”
“biological sex,” “God,” and so on).
“Inspired by foreign terrorist groups” and
“emboldened by the breach of the US Capitol Building,” this diabolical
network of “domestic terrorists” is “plotting attacks against government
facilities,” “threatening violence against critical infrastructure” and
actively “citing misinformation and conspiracy theories about Covid-19.”
For all we know, they might be huddled in the “Wolf’s Lair” at Mar-a-Lago
right now, plotting a devastating terrorist attack with those WMDs we
never found in Iraq, or generating
population-adjusted death-rate charts going back 20 years, or
posting pictures of “extremist
frogs” on the Internet.
The Department of Homeland Security is
“concerned,” as are its counterparts throughout the global capitalist
empire. The (New Normal) War on Domestic Terror isn’t just a war on
American “domestic terror.” The “domestic terror” threat is
international. France has just passed a “Global
Security Law” banning citizens from filming the police beating the
living snot out of people (among other “anti-terrorist” provisions). In
Germany, the government is preparing to install an
anti-terror moat around the Reichstag. In the Netherlands, the
police are cracking down on the VCTEs, VRDEs, and other “angry
citizens who hate the system,” who have been protesting over nightly
curfews. Suddenly, everywhere you look (or at least if you are looking
in the corporate media), “global
extremism networks are growing.” It’s time for Globocap to take the
gloves off again, root the “terrorists” out of their hidey holes, and
roll out a new official narrative.
Actually, there’s not much new about it. When
you strip away all the silly new acronyms, the (New Normal) War on
Domestic Terror is basically just a combination of the “War on Terror”
narrative and the “New Normal” narrative, i.e., a militarization of the
so-called “New Normal” and a pathologization of the “War on Terror.” Why
would GloboCap want to do that, you ask?
OVER THE YEAR OR SO since I found C.J. Hopkins and became his very
big fan, I have noted a transformation in this very clever writer's demeanor. In
the beginning, Hopkins was unrelentingly tongue-in-cheek, snarky, and wickedly
witty. Insightful, certainly, but delivering the message in such a way as to
always leave you with a smile at the end.
These days, not so much.
As the "pandemic" pretext for destabilization and
experiments on our liberties was erected about us, the endings became
increasingly serious. Since the American election theft was committed
and the monolithic, "there is no evidence" mantra took its place in the
mouth of the mainstream media alongside the various C19 choruses-- and
especially since the Reichstag-fire pretense at the Capitol on January 6
and the narrative trotted out on its noxious steam, Hopkins has become
much more sober-- grim, even.
Hopkins still tries to stick with the form of
sarcasm, but the message is increasingly one of alarm. The closing line
of the closing paragraph in the piece above is a great example of what I
mean, and I hope everyone is getting the message. (And btw, with regard
to Hopkins' overall subject for his piece above, I want to remind
everyone that the "domestic terrorism" pretext for ideological
oppression is not new. See
this discussion from more than a decade ago...)
AT THE SAME TIME, I will continue to remind everyone
that a key defense for the people against despotism is the power
individual Americans have over the purse from which all bad state
behavior is financed.
That defense was put in place by the Founders in
anticipation of just the sort of corruption that reigns today. They
knew that if you can control the amount of damage that can be done by
bad actors, society can survive the inevitable presence within its ranks
of naifs and fools.
