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

Cognitive Inoculations Against Selected Misunderstandings, Misinformation And Madness
...on subjects including the draining of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, "frivolous return penalty" fog, prison reform policies, spin-polling, sending Mitch McConnell packing, "domestic terrorism", immigration, and more.

AMERICA'S STRATEGIC PETROLEUM RESERVE doesn't exist to moderate gasoline pump prices, especially not in order to temporarily obscure rises in prices reflecting (invariably-government-caused) inflation until a mid-term election is safely rigged. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve exists in order to ensure that an immediate and secure supply of oil is on hand with which to fuel American tanks, mobile artillery, troop transports, fighter jets, battleships and bombers-- and to reliably maintain and deploy the infrastructure needed to build and equip more of the same-- in the event of war.

The Democrats in control in Washington, however, having grievously wounded the American economy over the last two years (and with much more damage waiting in the wings), have drained more than 165 million barrels from the reserve in order to conceal increases in the price of gas caused by their policies. This has dropped the reserve to its lowest level since 1984.

I'm not a particularly "hawkish" guy, but in light of the simultaneous, deliberate and ongoing destruction of American oil-production infrastructure, this crass political ploy by the Democrats is singularly irresponsible, and those who ARE "hawkish", or even just prudent, ought to be raising the roof and proposing articles of impeachment, right now.

"FRIVOLOUS RETURN PENALTIES" DON'T HINGE on whether a filer is or is not an "employee", or earned "wages", or anything of the sort. Briefly summarized, the relevant issues (which might also be called the "material facts") in a "Frivolous Return Penalty" assertion/contest are three:

Global Uprising
by Chuck Baldwin

In my column last week, I reported on the mass protests going on in Europe over their governments’ dismal, yea, catastrophic leadership regarding the sanctions against Russia that are strangling their economies and making life a living hell. The column last week specifically reported on the mass protests going on in the Czech Republic.

But the mass protests going on in the Czech Republic are also taking place all over Western Europe—and the mainstream media is totally ignoring them.

From DailyFetched.com:

Citizens across the globe are rapidly rising up against their government’s failed leadership and globalist policies wreaking havoc on the economy; all the while vast amounts of the establishment media remain silent.

Tens of thousands of people openly reject the globalist ethos, which has resulted in soaring living costs and skyrocketing energy prices.
The protests are both direct in message and scope – the globalist idiocy must end.

In Indonesia, for example, thousands turned out en masse in some of the country’s biggest cities earlier this week, demanding their “government reverse its first subsidized fuel price increase in eight years amid soaring inflation.”

“Protests took place in and around the capital, Jakarta, and in the cities of Surabaya, Makassar, Kendari, Aceh, and Yogyakarta, among a series of demonstrations led by students and labour groups that police say could draw big crowds this week.”

“Thousands of police were deployed across Jakarta, many guarding petrol stations, fearing they could become targets of mounting anger over a price increase that unions say will hurt workers and the urban poor the most.”

"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
