Coded Resistance: Freedom Fighting and Communication

It’s nearing the end of Black History Month, and that history is inherently tied to strife, resistance, and organizing related to government surveillance and oppression. Even though programs like COINTELPRO are more well-known now, the other side of these kinds of stories are the ways the Black community has fought back through intricate networks and communication aimed at avoiding surveillance.

Perhaps the most famous artisan of secret communications during this period is the venerable Harriet Tubman. Her character and will is undisputed, and her impeccable timing and remarkable intuition strengthened the Underground Railroad.

I signed up for T-Mobile’s $50 unlimited home internet service. Here’s what happened – CNET

So after more than a week with T-Mobile Home Internet, what’s the verdict? I’m keeping it, at least for now. There’s no contract, so I can always go back to Comcast if things don’t work out. And even if it’s not perfect 100% of the time, well, neither is Comcast — and imperfection is a lot more tolerable when you’re paying less than half what you were before. If this service is available in your area, I’d say it’s definitely worth a try. If nothing else, as noted above, the presence of a new competitor gives you a bargaining chip; you might be able to negotiate a lower rate from your current provider.

The Non-Covid Spending Blowout

(From The Wall Street Journal) Last year’s Cares Act distributed money mainly by state population, but much of the $220 billion for states in the new bill will be allocated based on average unemployment over the three-month period ending in December.

Vitamin D Supplementation Reduces Covid -19 Deaths by 64%

Vitamin D plays an important role in most diseases, including infectious disease, which is why from the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I suspected that optimizing vitamin D levels among the general population would significantly lower COVID-19 incidence and death.

Other research,27 published in November 2020 in the Postgraduate Medical Journal, shows oral vitamin D supplementation also helps speed up SARS-CoV-2 viral clearance. This study included only asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic SARS-CoV-2-positive individuals who also had vitamin D deficiency (a vitamin D blood level below 20 ng/mL).

ECONOMICS: The Gooferment is to blame for Texas’

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/02/18/texans-grid-outage-deregulation/

*** begin quote ***

Why Texans are cold and in the dark Texas’s predicament stems from a decision that state lawmakers made about 20 years ago to abandon the traditional model of fully regulated electricity utilities. Still used across many areas of the nation, these electric companies — described as vertically integrated utilities — do not compete for customers and are allowed to earn a rate of return on investment. They can raise rates only with the permission of state regulators. (Washington Post)

‘I Miss My Mom’: Children Of QAnon Believers Are Desperately Trying To Deradicalize Their Own Parents | HuffPost

The 19-year-old started to notice changes in his mother’s behavior around the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. She had always been a nervous woman: She stopped flying after 9/11 and had hovered closely to Sam and his two younger siblings for their entire lives. But during the COVID-19 crisis, his mom’s paranoia spiraled from quirky to deranged. It has turned her into someone he hardly recognizes.

Just like a cancer gene, some memes are just as deadly.

I don’t know much about AQnon, but it certainly sounds like a cult or “religion”.

Seems like they take legitimate questions, and ride them off into absurdity.

For example, the existence of a “Deep State” of bureaucrats is a demonstrated fact. They control a lot of power inside the Gooferment. Maybe more than any President or politician.

But that doesn’t put them in league with the Devil?

Epstein and his “lolita express” had some “interesting” passengers to his private island of young girls. And certainly, that needs some “sunshine”. But it doesn’t mean that every politician and or bureaucrat is a pedophile.

Memes can just a destructive as drugs especially those with too much time on their hands.

They should go do some charity work and get off the computer.

Recently, I wanted to look at calls that I made in October and November to firm up my memory. Argh!  IOS shows only your last 100 “recents”.

Too much to ask for the phone to spin out Call Detail Records to a file in iCloud?

The phone companies collect CDRs on everything for the police to fish thru. Why not let the poor dumb slob who’s paying the the “service” to have the same data?

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Coronavirus Crackdown Claims Another Free Speech Victim: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Kicked off Instagram

Daniel McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity (RPI) summed up in a Wednesday RPI email update what we are seeing in America as the “continuing merger of social media with government with the goal of silencing all dissidents outside the extreme center.” This development, along with others, McAdams wrote, indicate that “it appears increasingly likely that the total state is here and it is intent on flexing its muscles.” (

Coronavirus Crackdown Claims Another Free Speech Victim: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Kicked off Instagram

The headline at Reuters today reads “ Instagram bans Robert F. Kennedy Jr. over COVID-19 vaccine misinformation .” Misinformation? Not really. What Kennedy has been providing is information different from what government, along with big money media and social media have been pushing over the last year in America — the long-time fearmongering concerning coronavirus and praising of coronavirus crackdowns, as well as the recent incessant promoting that everyone should take the experimental coronavirus vaccines.

Don’t Let Judges Lie to Juries about Conscientious Acquittal | Cato Institute

The Maryland Court of Appeals’ endorsement of the novel (and false) proposition that juries may not acquit against the evidence—and its prospective instruction that state trial judges repeat that misrepresentation of the law to juries—represents a brazen usurpation of the jury’s power. No matter how much some judges may dislike jury nullification, letting them lie to juries to prevent the conscientious acquittal of a defendant is unconstitutional.

Is this hard evidence of illegal ballots in Detroit? The Gateway Pundit now claims that the TCF Center finally released security footage showing that witnesses were telling the truth.

The Gateway Pundit, though, wasn’t ready to walk away from these claims. Instead, two months ago, the site requested video footage from the TCF Center for the wee hours of November 4, long after the ballots should have stopped arriving. The Gateway Pundit finally received the footage a week ago and, since then, has poured through hundreds of hours of security camera footage. According to The Gateway Pundit, the footage revealed that, just as the witnesses said, 50 boxes of ballots arrived at around 3:30 in the morning:

It’s Time To Take Seriously Teachers’ Refusal To Teach

Military names can echo down through the ages, a fact underlined by the current fight in Washington, D.C., between President Trump and Congress, which has voted to strip the names of Confederate generals from several Southern Army bases.

The president has vowed that won’t happen, but the battle might not be resolved before Election Day.

The Navy, meanwhile, has quietly charted a new course. A supercarrier now on the drawing boards will be christened the USS Doris Miller.

It’s the first supercarrier to be named for an enlisted sailor and the first to be named after an African American.

I “knew” some of the story from high school history but never knew the man’s name. 

Hopefully this is something that the children learn in school.
