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 a world of lies.


If perchance a post of mine you think extreme

heed this from Kahlil Gibran:

“In battling evil, excess is good;

for he who is moderate in announcing the truth is presenting half-truth.

He conceals the other half out of fear of the people’s wrath.”


One of my goals is to think and act as if I fear no man’s wrath or deed.

Time to Reestablish the Concepts of Duty and Accountability
Armed Police

Kids are getting killed and you have a badge and a gun and you just sit there?

For an hour?

What the hell?

I’m trying to figure out the thought process and I can’t nail it down. Were they just listening to their Beto-donating boss? Were they tactically inept? Were they cowards?

Duty is a demanding mistress, which is why they call it “duty” and not “fun.” You get to walk around in your uniform with people thanking you for being a first responder, which is nice. You have to deal with the hassles of taking out society’s trash, certainly. And sometimes maybe you die.

Germany Fighting Inflation Too – German Retailers Expected to Raise Prices Monday by 20-50%

The Biden economy is not the only broken economy in the world. Germany’s inflation is out of this world too.

We’ve reported on Biden’s broken economy. Spending is at an all-time high, along with the US Deficit. This is causing record-breaking inflation in the US for the first time in decades.

Now we find out that Germany has massive inflation as well. This is not good for the Biden economy as well. Zerohedge writes:

Just days after Germany reported the highest inflation in generation (with February headline CPI soaring at a 7.6% annual pace and blowing away all expectations), giving locals a distinctly unpleasant deja vu feeling even before the Russian invasion of Ukraine broke what few supply chains remained and sent prices even higher into the stratosphere…

… on Monday, Germany will take one step toward a return of the dreaded Weimar hyperinflation, when according to the German Retail Association (HDE), consumers should prepare for another wave of price hikes for everyday goods and groceries with Reuters reporting that prices at German retail chains will explode between 20 and 50%:

Alan Dana

Great news! Listen to this from about 51:45. The pilot says that his legal counsel has advised him that if you arrive to be jabbed and tell the clinician that you are there solely because if you don’t get jabbed you will lose your job THEY CANNOT LEGALLY INJECT YOU because for them to do so would be for them to be party to your being coerced under threat of losing your job into undertaking an experimental medical procedure! If you can get that in writing you have a significant legal document. But regardless, you can go back to your employer and say, “They wouldn’t jab me because I told them that the only reason I was getting jabbed was because you threatened to fire me or reduce my hours if I didn’t”.

In fact I would go one step further. If you looked at how many times politicians and those with a vested interst lied and became of the mind that there was a far better than even chance that everything coming out of their mouth was a lie and pursued your investigations with that frame of mind I suspect you would find that to be the case so often you could take it as given.

Accurate Temperature Measurements Over 43 Years Criticised as Harmful and Unreliable (to the Narrative)

A Newsletter From John Truman Wolfe

For many months I have been trying to figure out who is running the country; who is calling the shots for this presidency, for this administration.

The unending stream of destructive policy that gushes from the White House almost daily is certainly not sourced by Joe Biden. It’s all Joe can do, through his medicated haze, to walk up to his teleprompter, stumble through the digital text on the screen and then turn his back on the media and depart amidst a hailstorm of shouted, but unanswered, questions.

This is what passes for leadership at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days. The citizenry weeps.

At first, there is one bad decision and then another. Well, I rationalize, the Democrats are in power. They are tax-and-spend liberals. They see the solution to any problem as more government, bigger government. Okay, I get it.

But it doesn’t stop. It goes on and on.

The immediate cancelation of a project to deliver 830 million barrels of oil daily to the U.S. from Canada; federal oil and gas leases put on hold, these actions send gas prices to the moon and drive inflation to a budget-busting, 40-year high; a disastrous troop withdrawal from Afghanistan that made the U.S. a global disgrace, that cost the lives of 13 American service personnel and left hundreds of Americans behind despite promises not to do so; an invasion of America…1.78 million illegals have poured through the Southern border with impunity - some diseased, some sex traffickers, terrorists, drug cartel members running fentanyl into the U.S. creating a massive addiction crisis and 100,000 deaths by overdose each year.

And the Biden administration? Joe puts his vacuous, cackling Vice President in charge of the border. But Heels-Up Harris does nothing. His Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (under which border security falls) does nothing.

It is a stunning display of political malfeasance.

Meanwhile, Joe and his party’s poll numbers are falling like a rock off a tall building. And at some point, a light bulb goes on and I step back and realize that this isn’t just malfeasance. Everything that is emanating from this administration is designed to damage the country, to take America down.

It is intentionally destructive.

“Who has such intentions?” I ask myself. Lightbulb #2 goes on as I recall quotes from an issue of Strategic Financial Intelligence that I wrote a couple of years ago called The Dark Lord of American Politics:

“American supremacy is the greatest threat to the world today.” “The main obstacle to stable and just world order is the United States.

These statements were made by none other than global sadist, George Soros.

Soros has three agenda items:

“The diminution of American power, the subjugation of American sovereignty in favor of one world government, and the implementation of a socialist redistribution of wealth, both within the U.S. and across national borders.”

So, thinking my basic question through, is George running Joe and his administration?

For the answer, we turn to the very able, just-published book on Soros by Matt Palumbo, The Man Behind the Curtain. Let’s start at the beginning and look at those in charge of the transition to the Biden administration.

“In the months leading up to Election Day, presidential candidates rely on transition teams to prepare for office. These small teams of highly skilled professionals assume critical pre-election and post-election responsibilities, including vetting, selecting and appointing presidential personnel, coordinating national security briefings and security clearances, and organizing agency review activities.”

(The following bullet pointed information comes from the Palumbo book. It scratches the surface on Soros’ political reach).

  • Sarah Cross a Director of one of the Soros foundations, worked as part of the State Department’s transition team.
  • Diane Thompson, a Soros foundation leadership fellow was picked to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s transition team.
  • A special adviser to the executive office of the Open Society Executive Office of Michael Pan was part of the United Nations transition team.
  • Sharon Berk and Vivian Goldberg, members of the Soros-funded New American organization where Soros’ son Jonathan sat on the Board; Berk aided the Department of Defense transition team and Goldberg aided that of the Department of Labor.
  • Five members of the Soros funded Center for American Progress were part of transition teams including those for the Department of Labor, the Department of Interior, Department of Treasury, Federal Reserve, Banking and Securities regulators as well as the National Security Council and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
  • Three members of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (on the Board of which the former Director of the Soros Management sits) aided with the Department of Defense’s transition team: Cathy Hicks, Melissa Dalton and Andrew Hunter.
  • Four people from the Soros-backed Center for a New American Security aided transition teams for the Department of Defense, Department of Treasury and Department of Veterans Affairs.

That covers some of the transition teams. What about the cabinet?

  • Neera Tanden who had served as the President for the Soros-funded Center for American Progress, became a senior adviser to President Biden in May 2021.
  • And the icing on the cake, Ron Klan who served on the Board of the Soros- funded Center for American Progress Action, the lobbying wing of the Center for American Progress has been Biden’s Chief of Staff since day one.


Soros has funded a staggering number of organizations that forward deeply destructive agendas in the United States (see the chart below). But as just one example, $220 million was given to the “Poor Peoples Campaign.” This organization is working to end “policing as we know it”, they are demanding the abolishment of immigration enforcement, seeking to expand welfare for illegal immigrants, and remove criminal penalties for violent offences.

Many others have the same or similar goals.

I got my question answered but I want to point out that Matt Palumbo’s book details much, much more than the Soros-connected influence in the Biden Administration.

The book has an extensive section on the degree to which Soros and Soros-connected organizations with Soros money have been affecting the quality of American education. The details are beyond troubling. Much work has to be done to return education to it’s true place in society, not as leftist brainwashing clinics.

There is also an extensive section on Soros’ influence in the American media. It is deep, it is extensive, and it is being used to shape American opinion. Soros and/or his organizations have investments and/or control of 50 different major media outlets in the United States. Big ones; important ones.

Additionally, for anyone interested, I am making the issue that I wrote on Soros available to anyone that would like to read it whether a subscriber to Strategic Financial Intelligence or not. I am making this issue available to one and all free of charge.

It can be accessed here:

How Long Does Canned Food Last? Survival Tip
Canned Foods

How Long Does Canned Food Last? Survival Tip. We talk about the shelf life of canned food and the difference between “Best Buy Date” and safe to eat. USDA Webpage:


Nothing personal, but the Mouse must die. Oh wait, it is personal, especially for people with little kids who this giant corporation has targeted at the behest of the minority of blue-haired, nose-ringed strange-os in its employ. That Walt Disney is likely turning over in his cryogenic chamber beneath the Disneyland Castle is irrelevant. The man who created an American institution is gone, as is said American institution. It’s now a global institution, and the America part is vastly outweighed by the Chi Com component. We used to trust Disney to take care of our kids, not take them over. Well, it made its choice, and it’s time to make ours.

The Republicans must figuratively post Mickey’s soon-to-be public domain head on a pike. This is what happens to corporations that cross us.

And cross us Disney did. It did not have to stick Donald’s beak into Florida’s fight to keep grooming perverts from messing with first graders’ heads. But stick it did, mewling and howling about the unfairness of Ron DeSantis taking the bullseye off our little ones. It promised to use its power to change the law, not just by advocacy but with contributions and veiled threats to pack up and go.

To which Ron the Avenger replied, “Pack your Schiff.“

DeSantis understands the use of power. He’s got it. Disney thought it did. But what Disney really has is a vast array of special breaks that helped make it the hulking monopolistic monstrosity that it is today. Look at Disney World in Orlando, a zillion-dollar resort city made possible by a huge spate of special laws that effectively make it a government unto itself. And look at the copyright laws – Mickey should have fallen out of protection decades ago, but the expiration of the 1920s cartoon rodent IP just kept being pushed back by Congress. It is now going to be open season on Mickey in 2024 unless another extension gets granted.

It better not be.

Once, it was understandable, if a bit cronyish, that Disney got what it wanted from various governmental entities. Disney was, well, Disney. Disney World was a place Republican senators loved to take their grandkids to as much as anyone else. And if expanding copyright periods let them keep Mickey in the cage, sure. Disney was beloved. It was trusted. We all grew up on it.

And then Disney treated decades of trust like Pluto the dog treats a fire hydrant.

Disney used its power not for good but for evil. And, more specifically, to screw with us normal people who don’t think sex pests should get free access to school kids. And then threaten us with its power.


Not even.

DeSantis should strip Disney of its special bequests in Florida. It’s not like Disney can move its city elsewhere. Congress should laugh Disney’s lobbyists out of the Capitol when they come begging for a new copyright dispensation. And we should not be shy about letting Disney know why.

You screwed with us. Now you have to pay.

For too long, conservatives did the bidding of the big corporations. But until recently, the big corporations generally used their political power only to carve out special breaks and deals. That was kind of obnoxious, but we were not the target. Corporations rarely dared turn their power on us on social issues. That was the deal.

Then they broke the deal. They decided to take a side against us. Disney was not alone. Now even Oreo is trying to sell us cookies with creamy woke filling. Unacceptable. Now they must pay.

Some conservatives cry out about the unfairness of the government acting against a company for using its power to affect politics and the culture. But our power is through the government and the politicians we elect. We are not morally obligated to be powerless in order to satisfy ideological stickler’s arbitrary dictates. Why does Disney get to use its power, but we cannot? How is that right or fair?

Now, the arrangement before was that we would not use our political power against companies, but also that companies like Disney would not use their power against us. Disney changed the rules. Why are we somehow obligated to pretend that never happened and that the old rules are still in effect?

Well, we aren’t. While David French might not like it, we are never going to accept being told, “We are going to use our political and cultural power to promote the sexualization of children, but you are morally foreclosed by using the one tool you have to stop it.“

Of course, we certainly encourage Disney to whine about how we are being mean by responding to its attack on our kids, but only so we can laugh at it.

Disney picked this fight, and luckily we had Ron DeSantis instead of a Kristi Noem or an Asa Hutchinson there to defend what is right against the Chamber of Commerce contingent that never met a big corporation it didn’t slobber over. The GOP needs to understand that big corporations have thrown in their lot with the enemy and that the old rules that once held us back are canceled, repealed, and kaput.

It is time to use our political power to deny those who side against us the breaks and benefits that used to be available when the corporations were culturally neutral. Let them beg the Democrats – hell, they give Dems all their money nowadays, so they might as well get something for it. And to those reticent about flexing our muscles, here’s the thing – the corporations taking aim at our kids are getting off lucky. Ron DeSantis could be passing the “Informed Resort Customer Information Act“ requiring that any company cavorting with the Chi Coms disclose in every theater and resort with big signs “XXXXX Company does business with the genocidal communist Chinese regime.“

Come to think of it, he should do that too. And other corporations, take note. Next November, the party of people you have been screwing with will have majorities in both houses.

Hey, aren’t those old rules looking good right about now?

Trump’s Greatest Gambit?

By Clarice Feldman

It has been unseasonably cold in Washington D.C. this spring. The blossoms on the cherry tree on my front lawn had barely bloomed when a cold snap and heavy wind-driven rain scattered the petals all over my front lawn. I stepped out front to pick up a box of herbs left there to be planted when a neighbor passed by.

I don’t know him very well, but his virtue signaling was a rather good clue as to where his sympathies lay. His lawn was peppered with signs: ”Biden-Harris,” “Hate has no Home Here,” “Build Bridges not Walls,” “Refugees Welcome Here,” “Climate Action Now,” “Gun Control Now,” “Black Lives Matter,” “Defund the Police.” By their lawn signs you shall know them, I thought. Still, I was polite -- waved and said, ”Hi.”

He apparently had something on his chest he just had to get rid of and approached me.

“It’s Trump’s doing!” he shouted.

Nonplussed, I simply raised my eyebrows and let him continue.

“He only pretended to run against Biden. He wanted him to win!”

“Really?” I asked.

“It’s perfectly obvious. Getting Biden and Harris elected was his diabolical way of destroying the Democratic party for decades! They and the Democratic party’s policies are so stupid, the people can’t stand them. Can’t wait to get rid of them.”

I didn’t wish to disturb this already vexed man more, so, saying nothing, I tilted my head suggesting I wanted to hear more behind his tirade.

“I can’t think of a thing Biden’s done which doesn’t make life worse for everyone. He’s losing Black and Hispanic voters and even suburban White women with this craziness. He’s paving the way for Iran to get nuclear weapons and upset the peace in the Middle East, to detriment of our allies. He’s stirring up Putin in a way that may lead to World War III. He’s thrown out so much money that inflation is soaring, and average people are finding it hard to put food on the tables and a roof over their heads.

“And don’t get me started on energy.” (I looked over at his yard -- his “Climate Action Sign” was missing).

“He did everything to raise the cost of coal, gas, and oil and that has added to household costs for everything and created a supply chain bottleneck we can’t seem to work our way out of. We’re told the dog food we need will be out of stock for at least a month and it’ll be six months until we can replace our refrigerator.”

“I’m sorry to hear that,” I said.

“Crime,” he muttered. “It’s out of control. This defund the police stuff is ridiculous. Five cars were broken into on this block in the last two weeks. There was a multiple shooting in the motel where the government has been housing the homeless three blocks away the week before. I’ve never seen anything like that in this neighborhood before!” (I looked again over his shoulder. The “Gun Control Now” sign had also vanished from his lawn.)

“And then there are the absolutely moronic things he and Harris say. This week he said that if we buy electric vehicles, we’ll save about $80 a month on gas. But those cars on average cost $56,000, a great deal more than conventional cars, and electricity -- largely produced by fossil fuels -- costs more because he’s made it more expensive by hamstringing the production of gas, coal, and oil. So even if his calculation were true, it would take decades for someone to afford to purchase an electric vehicle to achieve such savings.

“Don’t get me started on Harris, she’s even dumber. I can’t even point to the dumbest thing she’s said -- there’s so much competition -- but what does she even mean with gibberish like this: ’We have the ability to see what can be unburdened by what has been and then to make the possible actually happen’? Or this: ’It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day’?

“And then this genius comes out with a $5.8 trillion budget plan which, no kidding, he said was a ’clear message that we value fiscal responsibility.’ I mean, we’re already $30 trillion dollars in debt and he wants to spend stuff like this -- $11 billion for ’international climate finance,’ and $18 billion for a ’Civilian Climate Corps.’ He’s stripping our wallets and tossing the funds away.”

I also noticed that my neighbor’s pro-immigrant signs had been removed. I hesitated to mention his lawn redecoration program, but I asked if he’d changed his mind about the Democrats’ no-borders policy. He slapped a palm to his head, “The border states are overwhelmed and the Democratic congressional members from those states were in trouble enough when this week the CDC announced it was ending Title 42, Trump’s plan, which allowed the immigration officials to return border crossers and illegal aliens to their home countries. They’re estimating a least half a million border crossers will show up at the southern border EVERY MONTH!” He was shouting now. “EVERY MONTH,” that’s like the size of Atlanta, Georgia. or Fresno, California, every month!”

He was on a roll. “My daughter is a competitive swimmer, what do you imagine are my thoughts about transgenders competing against her? I was happy to see several states (Utah, Texas, Florida, South Dakota) are banning transgender competitors in women’s sports. I mean, what was Title IX about anyway, except giving women a chance to fairly compete? And what did Biden just do? I’ll tell you,” he said, without giving me a chance to respond. “He’s about to issue a new Title IX rule banning discrimination ’on the basis of sex stereotypes, sex-related characteristics, sexual orientation, and gender identity, whatever the heck this gibberish means -- to me it means boys can put on girls’ sports costumes and compete against them if they feel like it.”

“This at the same time his Supreme Court nominee, touted as the first Black woman to be nominated to the Court, says she’s not a biologist and can’t define what a woman is.”

’I see your point,” I said, “though I wouldn’t point the finger at Trump, but on those who voted for Biden. There was every indication this was how things were going to turn out.” As I said that, I noticed his wife was pulling the last sign out of their lawn.
