Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.

I bought two organic chooks at Coles. A roasted one for $11 and a raw one for $14. I know, go figure!

We had some of the roast chicken for lunch then I cooked the raw chook to make chicken soup. Out of interest I compared the weight of the chook prior to cooking (1.8 kilos) with the net weight of the meat after I picked it clean of fat and bones and it was 676 grams - 37%.

How the Government Gave Chevron the Power to Prosecute Its Biggest Critic - The Case of Human Rights Lawyer Steven Donziger

Join special guests Roger Waters, anti-corruption fighter Simon Taylor, and other human rights leaders for an online webinar to support lawyer Steven Donziger on Thursday, August 6th at noon EDT.

Steven has been in arbitrary detention without trial for one year on a misdemeanor charge after he helped Ecuadorian Indigenous and farming communities win a historic $9.5b pollution judgment against Chevron.

August 6th is the one-year anniversary of his unprecedented house arrest in New York after he refused to comply with an illegal order that he turn over his computer and cell phone to Chevron.

A major new action will be announced to support Steven and the fight of the communities to force Chevron to comply with the rule of law and clean its “Amazon Chernobyl” disaster.

How to Fight Unlawful Government Orders

Hey, Yanks, listen up!

THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE.....Yesterday, three businesses in Nevada County, CA, were given “orders” by “Strike Teams” to close.

They did not. Instead, the owners went to the County Sheriff’s office and served cease and desist papers against the Nevada County Departments of Public Health and Environmental Health (under the County Health and Human Services Agency.)

Says Tara Thornton, in this video:

“Nevada County is forming the model of organization of businesses and community members to fight back and course correct on this.

“So today, three of the businesses... are here with papers to serve to the sheriff, requesting that the Departments of Public Health and Environmental Health cease and desist... these activities, because County public health requirements and restrictions are guidelines and not law...”
The complaint reads:

We are filing this formal complaint that we request you investigate regarding elected and appointed officials and their designees and representatives at the state and county level who conspired to:
a) Interfere in my right to protect my property and have been conducting unreasonable trespass, Penal Code § 602.8;
b) Take my property without due process of Law, US Constitution, 5th Amendment;
c) Seize my business, US Constitution, 4th Amendment
d) Harass, Code of Civil Procedure § 527.6;
e) Intimidate and Coerce, Penal Code § 422.6(a);
f) Refuse to acknowledge the cease and desist warnings given by Assistance of Counsel July 15, 2020, various other in person warnings by the businessowner;
g) Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law, Title 18 USC §§ 241 & 242;
h) Involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; appear to be intended-
(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction; and which are acts of domestic terrorism. USA Patriot Act 2001, §802

Remedy seeking:
We demand that Amy Ilrani, Nicole Johnson, and all other officials of the Nevada County Departments of Public Health and Environmental Health, under the direction of the County Health and Human Services Agency cease and desist all criminal activity outlined above. The orders from the California Department of Public Health are called COVID-19 Industry Guidance, and are guidelines, are not laws, not enacted by our state legislature, and are therefore not legally binding or enforceable, and null and void. “A law repugnant to the Constitution is void.” Marbury v Madison (1803) 5 US 137.

COVID Earth - a tale of two planets

There are, apparently, two Earths currently circling the Sun.

On one Earth, there is a killer epidemic on the loose cutting a swathe of carnage across the entire planet. It is a highly infectious, invisible creeping menace that is slaughtering millions and, lurking in supermarkets and public place or hiding in your child’s hair and so forth, can pounce the moment you stop being afraid or sanitising your door knobs every five minutes. The environment is seething with it and it can strike anyone down at any time without warning, especially the very moment they ignore government advice. Families are decimated. Ten percent of the population or possibly more have died. Hospitals are overloaded; casualty departments are consumed by an unrelenting mayhem where exhausted staff heroically fight a losing battle against the remorseless tide of viral slaughter; bodies are stacking up at undertakers. Across the stricken planet there is a great wailing and gnashing of teeth as mankind faces extinction - or would but for the wisdom of governments who have saved the day by mandating cunning and tremendously successful responses such as lockdowns, hiding, throwing money at the pharmaceutical industry and wearing masks. Thus a frightened and cowering but nevertheless lucky populace wait out the apocalypse justifiably confident that their politicians can be completely trusted to know exactly the right thing to do. Plans have already been laid for rebuilding civilisation when a handful of survivors emerge blinking from their hidey holes into the bright new dawn of a pharmaceutical Golden Age in which everyone will always be completely safe and life can be lived without any risk whatever as long as you don’t expect to enjoy it .

This is the incredibly dangerous world inhabited by millions of people who LISTEN to what they are told and who believe what they read in newspapers and trust their political elite to never ever tell fibs.

Then there is the second, alternative Earth.

On this Earth, there is some sort of flu going around that is caught by about one person in five although the majority apparently exhibit no symptoms and don’t even know they have had it unless tested for it by tests that give quite a lot of false postives in any case. Of these, one in about 400 die of or with it (no one is entirely sure which) but only if they are really really old and/or already have a serious illness. Hardly anyone directly knows anyone who has died if this bug and hardly anyone has had it, although some think they might have had it but on the other hand it could have been a cold or something similar. Many of its alleged symptoms are symptoms of other bugs so no-one can be too sure. As epidemics go it is, all things considered, a very strange one. From its outset, the hospitals have been quieter than ever and so have the casualty departments. There are no ambulances dashing about rushing the stricken to overloaded COVID wards and no bodies stacking up at undertakers. The air is not full of the wailing of the bereaved. Very few people except those in the aforementioned vulnerable categories are at serious risk from this bug and the young and reasonably healthy are at virtually no risk whatsoever.

This is the fairly tolerable planet inhabited by people who actually LOOK at the world around them rather than wait for a newspaper or slightly dim but immensely self important politician to tell them what reality is.

Which one do you live on?


Every morning when I wake up, I experience an exquisite joy —the joy of being Salvador Dalí— and I ask myself in rapture: What wonderful things is this Salvador Dalí going to accomplish today? - Salvador Dalí

I read this and I thought,
No wonder he created so,
From the get go he intended so.
Straight after he woke,
This question he spoke,
What things would I create?

No thought of not doing so,
No “Should I, should I not?“,
No “What will people think?“
Inhibited his intention to create wonderful things.

This unrestrained intention and joy of creation is very observable in people working on their basic purpose.

In what area does the joy of creation does inspire you?

Spend more time on it!

And to keep you creating, here are some creations from others:

Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create. Roy T. Bennett

I criticize by creation, not by finding fault. Marcus Tullius Cicero

Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. – Edward de Bono

The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. – Sylvia Plath

Book: Committee Of 300, by Dr. John Coleman

This first sample is on page 105 of the PDF file.

The project was housed in Wellington House, named after the Duke of Wellesly. American specialists drafted to help Lords Rothmere and Northcliffe included Edward Bernays and Walter Lippman. The group held “brain storming” sessions to work out techniques for mobilizing mass support for the war, especially among the working class people whose sons were expected to go to the slaughter fields of Flanders in record numbers.

Using Lord Rothmere’;s newspaper, new manipulative techniques were tried out and, after a period of about 6 months, it was apparent that they were a success. What the researchers discovered was that only a very small group of people understood the process of reasoning and the ability to observe the problem as opposed to passing an opinion on it. This, said Lord Rothmere, was the way in which 87% of the British public approached the war, and that the same principle applied not only to the war, but to every conceivable problem in society in general.

In this manner, irrationality was elevated to a high level of public consciousness. The manipulators then played upon this to undermine and distract the grasp of reality governing any given situation and, the more complex the problems of a modern industrial society became, the easier it became to bring greater and greater distractions to bear so that what we ended up with was that the absolutely inconsequential opinions of masses of people, created by skilled manipulators, assumed the position of scientific fact.

What is planned (from pg 158)
Euthanasia for the terminally ill and the aged shall be compulsory. No cities shall be larger than a predetermined number as described in the work of Kalgeri. Essential workers will be moved to other cities if the one they are in becomes overpopulated. Other non-essential workers will be chosen at random and sent to underpopulated cities to fill “quotas.”

At least 4 billion “useless eaters” shall be eliminated by the year 2050 by means of limited wars, organized epidemics of fatal rapid-acting diseases and starvation. Energy, food and water shall be kept at subsistence levels for the non-elite, starting with the white populations of Western Europe and North America and then spreading to other races. The population of Canada, Western Europe and the United States will be decimated more rapidly than on other continents, until the world’s population reaches a manageable level of 1 billion, of which 500 million will consist of Chinese and Japanese.

We Got Hacked
We Got Hacked

US bank Morgan Stanley has posted letters to an unknown amount of customers, notifying them of potential data breaches involving sensitive personal information left on servers and storage sent to recyclers and on an encrypted drive lost at a branch office.

(Tom: In my personal opinion, having my info in the hands of banks and others with whom I do business is risky enough, as this story illustrates only too well, but storing personal or business data in the cloud takes the risk of loss to a whole new level. That is why I continue to use the accounting and business software I created myself hosted on an inhouse computer.

As an additional note, ransomware, phishing and hacking scams are costing businesses obscene amounts of money. Travel giant CWT pays $6.3m ransom to cyber criminals

Do some homework and formulate firm policy with which you (and any staff) deal with your emails and web sites you visit. For instance I:

Use strong malware protection, currently Emisoft Enterprise Security Suite.

Never click on links in an email from unknown senders.

Even from known senders I sometimes receive emails with just a link, no explanatory text. I do not click on those. I will sometimes email the sender to ask what it is about.

Never download from file transfer sites unless I expect a link from that person and

Always check the displayed and hidden URL match the expected domain as miscreants will sometimes use what is called a sub-domain or sub-folder to make it look more legitimate. For instance last week I got one allegedly from but when I held my mouse over the link it was not the domain, that was used as a folder name like this:
A valid name used as a sub-domain for a hacker site looks like this:

So, just because it has a recognisable name somewhere in the URL, that is a trick to fool those not fully tech savvy. Now you are informed, don’t fall for it.)


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
