Jump ahead to 19 minutes, if you are in a hurry. But the entire clip is very informative to most people.
Oh and BTW, I hope you are motivated to turn off your Internet router’s Wifi and hard wire (ethernet) cable your computers to your ISP’s device.
Turning on your cell phone’s airplane mode, especially at night is also a good practice.

Earlier this year Health Impact News investigative reporter John P. Thomas began a series of articles on child sex trafficking within the Roman Catholic Church. See:
Other Christians who are not part of the Catholic Church might be tempted to believe that such horrible crimes could never happen in their particular church or denomination.
However, the Star Telegram in Fort Worth, Texas has recently published a series of articles covering an 8-month investigation in the Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches across the U.S. showing that sexual abuse against children has been rampant and covered up for years. See:
According to their investigative team:…… Read More
Firestone at Battlefield Mall (1) is to put it bluntly, run by a bunch of incompetent low lifes.
I went there last year for new tires and requested that I keep the old tires, as there was a lot of thread still left on them.
I did not check my trunk until a day later, and guess what?
No tires! Out of 2, $100 tires!
Recently I went back to Firestone, for another tire. They told me that my air filter was filthy, and needed changed. That’s funny I thought, my car has a cleanable K&N filter that you don’t throw out, so they never looked at my filter! I did however, when I got home, and as I suspected is was squeaky clean. (more proof that they never look at it and were lying)
The story of this visit did not end there: Yesterday I was traveling out of town and had a failure of a tire. I went to the trunk expecting to mount that “doughnut” that I used to get to Firestone the last visit, only to find that the tire was utterly thrashed and useless, and Firestone never bothered either to offer to replace it or to notify my that it was not in usable condition.
Anyhow the gross incompetence of this company cost me a 70 mile, $245 tow back home, 2 spare tires, and they lied to me about the work that my car needed. (an air filter)
If I were you I would not only avoid this specific Firestone location, I would avoid the Firestone company like the plague.
FWIW I send an email to their public relations email and they did not even bother to respond. Par for the course…..
“Should we be arresting the gun grabbers?”
It pains me that I even have to ask this question, but it’s obvious that Americans are so dumbed down that they don’t have a clue as to the the correct answer, or why.
Would you support the arrest of people preaching the idea that we should hang blacks and put Jews into FEMA camps? Or any other call for using violence, to violate the inalienable God given rights of anyone?
Well isn’t self defense a God given right? One that is explicitly protected from government intrusion by the 2nd amendment. Right in the US Constitution, the highest law of the land.
Yet most of the dumbed down American public, think that the psychopaths in our legislatures, can write words on paper and voila, violate both the Constitution, in addition to our God given rights. Sorry to burst your bubble but that is not how this Constitutional Republic was set up. Doing this is criminal, and ignores both the Constitution and natural law.
So tell me from a rights violation standpoint how is calling for the violent tramping of a fundamental right, and disarming Americans, any different than say calling for all Muslims (or Jews) in this country to be rounded up into camps and their property seized? And/or that they be executed? Hint: There is not a lick of difference. All of my examples are crimes because they advocate for the trampling of peoples rights! The people that call for the crime of gun grabbing, or vote to enact bills that “legalize” this crime, need to be arrested and feel the full force of the law. There is no ambiguity here, there is no wiggle room. People that advocate taking your means of self defense are the lowest form of criminal scum, and need to be treated as such. (Even if they are just “useful idiots” serving the Satanic, New World Order’s, United Nations led, disarmament agenda 1, 2, 3 )
The American people are fatally dumbed down by the psychopaths in government violating yet another right (your right to choose how to educate your children) by mandating that your children attend 12 year government indoctrination camps so that they “think correctly”.
Hosea 4:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
In case you are not aware one of the many laws that gun grabbers could be charged with, is United States Code, Title 18, sections 241 & 242. i.e. “DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW” (FWIW this same law could be used against anyone in government, including police, judges, and jailers) that have participated in the United Nations instigated war on drugs. It most certainly needs to be applied to the “legislators” that are calling for killing you if necessary to take your means of self defense.
Please post you comments in the comment section below….
I hope you realize that ALL gun laws are gun grabbing laws and are criminal violations of the 2nd amendment under USC 18 sections 241 & 242. Let that sink in for awhile.
In one of the most Orwellian bills to date, lawmakers in New York have drafted and proposed a bill that will require a review of a citizens social media as well as their search engine history, going back years—just to buy a gun.
Senate Bill 9191 would establish an official investigation officer who would scour the social media posts and search engine history of anyone attempting to purchase a gun. It also applies to current gun owners who want to renew their licenses….. Read More
Congress-Comrade Swalwell (CPUSA-CA), the new Dr. Strangelove of the weapons disarmament lobby, has been the subject of hundreds of analyses in the blogosphere especially among the always possible samizdat in North America. I won’t repeat their sage scribblings but my only hope is that cooler heads prevail and folks start getting acquainted with the primary engines of irregular warfare: grievances (perceived and real), legitimacy and force ratios.
If the Left’s new love affair with military hardware is any indication of their martial imagination, we should be grateful they haven’t been paying attention to the absolutely worthless calculus of bringing technology to bear as the sole expositor of victory.
I will be going to the Small Arms Review gun show in Phoenix on Saturday, 1 DEC 2018. Biggest gun exhibition in the west. I have grown cynical of gun shows in the past but this one is a great technology exposition and a way to make contacts among fellow hoplites and peltasts. Send me an email or a ping on my forum if you are attending, I’d like to meet some of readers.
My daughter and I are putting together a photo and/or video contest for the first ZeroGov T-shirt we produced using her exquisite design, details to follow. The winner will get a ten-ounce silver bar.
The second ZeroGov T-shirt is out now.
“I’ve concluded that genius is as common as dirt. We suppress genius because we haven’t yet figured out how to manage a population of educated men and women. The solution, I think, is simple and glorious. Let them manage themselves.”
“Independent study, community service, adventures and experience, large doses of privacy and solitude, a thousand different apprenticeships — the one-day variety or longer — these are all powerful, cheap, and effective ways to start a real reform of schooling. But no large-scale reform is ever going to work to repair our damaged children and our damaged society until we force open the idea of “school” to include family as the main engine of education. If we use schooling to break children away from parents — and make no mistake, that has been the central function of schools since John Cotton announced it as the purpose of the Bay Colony schools in 1650 and Horace Mann announced it as the purpose of Massachusetts schools in 1850 — we’re going to continue to have the horror show we have right now.”
I want to discuss why I think the education system in America may be one of the primary causes of the renaissance of government supremacism and communism in the minds of youth both young and old alike….. Read More
An Interview with Bill Sardi – Part 1
By Richard A. Passwater, Ph.D.
November 26, 2018
Your badly mutated GULO (gulonolactone [L-] oxidase) gene has been robbing you of health all your life and limits your lifespan. It’s so badly mutated that the human variant is now called the GULOP pseudogene.
Here’s what you can do about it to improve your health and increase your lifespan.
Bill Sardi has been a guest of this column twice before, and has an overview of this subject scheduled for the October issue of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Specifically, we will chat with him about the latest research confirming the practical health and substantial longevity benefits of fully compensating for this defective pseudogene. The operative word here is “fully.” How much vitamin C is required to fully compensate for not having a working GULO gene? The paltry 60 milligrams that is the RDA or the several grams that animals make when they have a fully functioning GULO gene? What does the latest study suggest that the longevity increase can be?…..Read More
Long Version here
November 27, 2018
“The freedom of individuals verbally to oppose or challenge police action without thereby risking arrest is one of the principal characteristics by which we distinguish a free nation from a police state.”— Justice William J. Brennan, City of Houston v. Hill
What the architects of the police state want are submissive, compliant, cooperative, obedient, meek citizens who don’t talk back, don’t challenge government authority, don’t speak out against government misconduct, and don’t step out of line.
What the First Amendment protects—and a healthy constitutional republic requires—are citizens who routinely exercise their right to speak truth to power.
It’s not an easy undertaking.
Weaponized by police, prosecutors, courts and legislatures, “disorderly conduct” charges have become a convenient means by which to punish those individuals who refuse to be muzzled.
Cases like these have become all too common, typical of the bipolar nature of life in the American police state today: you may have distinct, protected rights on paper, but dare to exercise those rights and you put yourself at risk for fines, arrests, injuries and even death.
This is the unfortunate price of freedom.
Yet these are not new developments.
We have been circling this particular drain hole for some time now.
Almost 50 years ago, Lewis Colten was arrested outside Lexington, Kentucky, for questioning police and offering advice to his friend during a traffic stop.
Colten subsequently challenged his arrest as a violation of his First Amendment right to free speech and took the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which sided with the police.
Although the Court acknowledged that Colten was not trespassing or disobeying any traffic regulation himself, the majority affirmed that Colten “had no constitutional right to observe the issuance of a traffic ticket or to engage the issuing officer in conversation at that time.”
The Supreme Court’s bottom line: protecting police from inconvenience, annoyance or alarm is more important than protecting speech that, in the government’s estimation, has “no social value.”
While the ruling itself was unsurprising for a judiciary that tends to march in lockstep with the police, the dissent by Justice William O. Douglas is a powerful reminder that the government exists to serve the people and not the other way around.
Stressing that Colten’s speech was quiet, not boisterous, devoid of “fighting words,” and involved no overt acts, fisticuffs, or disorderly conduct in the normal meaning of the words, Douglas took issue with the idea that merely by speaking to a government representative, in this case the police—a right enshrined in the First Amendment, by the way—Colten was perceived as inconveniencing and annoying the police.
In a passionate defense of free speech, Douglas declared:
Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us?The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet. The situation might have indicated that Colten’s techniques were ill-suited to the mission he was on, that diplomacy would have been more effective. But at the constitutional level speech need not be a sedative; it can be disruptive.
It’s a power-packed paragraph full of important truths that the powers-that-be would prefer we quickly forget: We the people are the sovereigns. We have the final word. We can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy. We need not stay docile and quiet. Our speech can be disruptive. It can invite dispute. It can be provocative and challenging. We do not have to bow submissively to authority or speak with reverence to government officials.
Now in theory, “we the people” have a constitutional right to talk back to the government.
In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court concluded as much in City of Houston v. Hillwhen it struck down a city ordinance prohibiting verbal abuse of police officers as unconstitutionally overbroad and a criminalization of protected speech.
In practice, however, talking back—especially when the police are involved—can get you killed.
The danger is real.
We live in an age in which “we the people” are at the mercy of militarized, weaponized, immunized cops who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”
While violent crime in America remains at an all-time low, the death toll as a result of police-sponsored violence continues to rise. In fact, more than 1,000 people are killed every year by police in America, more than any other country in the world.
What we are dealing with is a nationwide epidemic of court-sanctioned police violence carried out against individuals posing little or no real threat.
Police encounters have deteriorated so far that anything short of compliance—including behavior the police perceive as disrespectful or “insufficiently deferential to their authority,” “threatening” or resistant—could get you arrested, jailed or killed.
The problem, of course, is that compliance is rarely enough to guarantee one’s safety.
When police officers are allowed to operate under the assumption that their word is law and that there is no room for any form of disagreement or even question, that serves to destroy the First Amendment’s assurances of free speech, free assembly and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, if ever there were a time to scale back on the mindset adopted by cops that they are the law and should be revered, feared and obeyed, it is now.
What”s the problem? From my observations this criminal system is supported by about 100% of “Christianity”. After all Romans 13 says that our evil governments are put there by God! (Sarcasm in case you missed it)
It is my thesis, that all of the government evil that you see in this world is caused by Christians sitting on their asses and refusing to act:
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn – The Gulag Archipelago
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” (Edmund Burke)
“Noncooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with good.” – Gandhi
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” —Dietrich Bonhoeffer
As always I must ask: Where the hell are the “pro-life” useful idiots?

It is clear that the effort to protect children from abuse has resulted in many non-abused children being taken away from innocent parents by Child Protective Services. Less than 16% of children are taken from their families for allegations of any kind of abuse (Source), and only 17% of allegations against parents are even substantiated (Source).
In the name of protecting some children, many more children are traumatized and abused by the very system tasked with protecting them. Medical kidnapping and state-sanctioned seizure of children is more common than most people have realized.
Yet parents whose children are taken find that they have less rights than criminals. The right to due process is conspicuously absent from almost all CPS cases. A legislator once told me that she does not care about the Constitutional rights of parents when it comes to child abuse allegations.
Is it possible to protect abused children while, at the same time, protect the integrity of families and the Constitutional or civil rights of parents?…. Read More
Say the wrong things and you might get kicked off of your favorite social media platform.
Tech titans Apple, Facebook, and YouTube have wiped out talk-show host Alex Jones’s social media presence on the Internet. But the social media crusades weren’t over.
Facebook recently took down popular pages like Liberty Memes and hundreds of other prominent libertarian-leaning pages . In the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, social media network Gab was on the receiving end of suspensions from payment processors like PayPal and Stripe and cloud hosting company Joyent. Although these companies did not provide clear explanations for their dissociation with Gab, the media had a field day when they learned that the synagogue shooter, Robert Bowers, had an account with the social media network.
Should libertarians fear social media de-platforming? Or is this a case of private actors exercising their legitimate property rights by excluding those they wish to no longer do business with?…. Read More
