...where real knowledge-- and actual solutions-- intersect with real Americans!

I Keep Saying This-- Why Don't I Hear Anyone Saying "Amen"?
Plus, the real reason for the stand-down on the pandemic narrative and some advice for the Michelle Malkins of the world.

WHY DID WE JUST SUFFER two years of unprecedented corruption and insanity under the mantle of the "C19 pandemic"? Because the success of the "ignorance tax"* scam has generated a giant honey-pot in Washington, DC, for control and plunder of which scheming and unscrupulous villains will inevitably strive.

That "ignorance tax" honey-pot lay waiting to be tapped for $70 billion or so by Pfizer and Gilead and J&J and the rest of the Covid Kool-Aid salesmen. And so, they set up conditions by which the tapping could proceed.

That honey pot is why intemperate and outright nutcase voices in Congress are being encouraged by the military-industrial complex to bark for confrontation with military powerhouse Russia over Ukraine (a territory Vladimir Putin has no interest in invading, but cannot responsibly allow to become a staging ground for US missiles a mere 250 miles from Moscow, any more than Washington was prepared to allow Cuba to host Soviet missiles in 1962).

That honey pot is being tapped to pay Americans to sit at home instead of taking jobs and keeping (especially) small businesses afloat and in effective competition with large corporations.

And that honey pot is paying for the erection and maintenance of an enormous governmental apparatus dedicated to controlling your life.

Continuing to fund that giant honey pot when you are under no legal obligation to do so, and when you oppose any or all of the abuses listed above and the host of others not mentioned here is MADNESS. It is also grossly irresponsible and a shameful betrayal of the interests of your children-- especially when all that is necessary to effect a positive change is to share this document with others.

JUST DO THIS, people! And do it loudly!!

You need others doing it too, for your sake as well as theirs, and nothing encourages activism like activism. Good people have to feed each other's fires, or suffer darkness.

*IGNORANCE TAX: An unnecessary income tax exaction suffered out of ignorance as to lawful objects of the tax and the means of its application by someone too lazy, frightened or misled to learn how it really works and to what it really applies.

Why Die for Ukraine?
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney visited the House of Representatives yesterday. He and his daughter Liz were the only two Republicans present at a moment of silence commemorating the events of last January 6th. It was a touching scene, which perfectly described why the surviving anti-Trump Uniparty of the political mainstream is at least as much of a threat to democracy as the “insurrectionists” they never stop wailing about.

In a story entitled “Dick Cheney returns to the House and receives a warm welcome...from Democrats,” the Washington Post wrote that “Democrats put aside their fierce and lasting policy divides with the Cheneys to thank them for condemning the attack and Trump’s continued effort to undermine the 2020 presidential election results with his false claims of fraud.

(News writing has become a pre-fab profession, like assembling IKEA furniture. All you need is an Allen wrench and a list of the latest clichés. “Trump’s efforts to undermine the 2020 election” has replaced “Trump’s efforts to coordinate with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” and “Trump’s false claims of fraud” has replaced “Trump’s false claims of ‘fake news.’” Part of the significance of January 6th is that it updated popular propaganda stock, which had grown stale.)

I don’t mean to understate the seriousness of January 6th, even though it’s been absurdly misreported for over a year now. No one from a country where these things actually happen could mistake 1/6 for “a coup .” In the real version, the mob doesn’t take selfies and blaze doobies after seizing the palace, and the would-be dictator doesn’t spend 187 minutes snacking and watching Fox before tweeting “go home.” Instead, he works the phones nonstop to rally precinct chiefs, generals, and airport officials to the cause, because a coup is a real attempt to seize power. Britannica says the “chief prerequisite for a coup is control of all or part of the armed forces, the police, and other military elements.” We saw none of that on January 6th, but it’s become journalistic requirement to use either “coup” or “insurrection” in describing it:

"I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves...too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism: 'Our country, right or wrong!' They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: 'Our country--when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.'"
-Senator Carl Schurz, October 17, 1899
