I found this fascinating and shows how dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom) has been lost. Wonder what else they knew that we don’t. Dental cement that lasts a thousand years?

Nancy Pelosi Finally Loses Some Money

DC Schools Spend the Most to Educate the Least At a whopping cost of $23,754 per student, Washington DC schools spend more than any state in the nation besides New York. And what do you receive for their college-priced public schools? Just 23% of eighth grade DC students were proficient in math and reading according to 2019 tests from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. That is the worst performance in the nation. Incidentally, it was a DC school we talked about last week that introduced students to a “fistbook” (not handbook) which asked five year old children to identify which members of their families were racist. And the same school system endorses the “BLM at school” curriculum, which includes “Introduction to Transgender and Non-binary Identities” for preschoolers. This school district obviously has its priorities straight. Unfortunately they don’t include math and reading.

Sorry but why are we tolerating that.

Sigh!

Some British elites even envisioned reuniting with the former colony across the Atlantic to achieve Anglo-American world domination, ushering in a millennium of global peace and progress. Supporters of this idea noted the shared language and other characteristics between the two nations especial that of race. Almost all the advocates for a British-American union mention that both were Anglo-Saxon nations. Although by this time American had absorbed millions of Irish, German, Scandinavian, and other immigrants, US culture and US elites were still overwhelmingly of British origins.

Hard to imagine the world if this had happened.

Might have been an interesting change.

Calls Emerge For China To Deploy Digital “Helicopter Money”

Back in 2020, we sketched out the monetary endgame as follows: the Fed – along with all other central banks – was rushing to roll out a CBDC (digital dollar) so that when the next crisis hit, it could then directly deposit said “Digital Dollars” directly into the accounts of each American – or at least those Americans the Fed found worth of such stimmies – to offset a deflationary bust.

The beauty of the e-CNY is that the PBOC can set an expiration date, and determine which goods and services the money can be spent on, so that the cash won’t be saved or spent on financial speculation.

*** end quote ***

Of course, Gresham’s Law would seem to indicate that the e-CNY being spent would free up money could be “saved” in other ways. For example, buy food with your e-CNY and gold with what you would have spent on food.  Would seem to be counter productive; not creating a boom?

Natural Dietary Remedy for Insomnia | NutritionFacts.org

Lactucin, the hypnotic component of lettuce, is put to the test in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of lettuce seeds.

Now if there was just “Big Lettuce”, like “Big Pharma”, to publicize this win for “natural” or “alternative” medicine.

Anyone with insomnia should try this.

Why the New World Order Wants Programmable Currency

Technocracy is the proverbial operating system for the “superclass,” a centralized global elite that is working toward securing the exclusive ownership of all the world’s assets, reducing the rest of us to indebted serfs. While the plans for a NWO based on technocracy, i.e., The Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial Revolution, are clearly outlined on websites like that of the World Economic Forum (WEF), and world leaders are using these terms on a regular basis, when people point out the nefarious meaning of these terms, they’re typically dismissed as loony conspiracy theorists. 1 But the NWO is no conspiracy theory.

Foundations were made ‘tax exempt’ in the U.S. as ‘charitable’ organizations by the Revenue Act of 1917. This enabled the wealthiest people on Earth to fund their various social engineering projects without the need to pay any income tax. Income tax is only for the little people …

A “stunning” defeat for a Rhode Island gun ban – Bearing Arms

A federal judge has struck down Rhode Island’s ban on stun guns, though he didn’t seem too thrilled about having to reach that decision.

Sorry but a law-abiding citizen should be presumed to be carrying ANYTHING for a lawful self-defense purpose. Personally, i’d rather trust good people to do the right thing than some Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats telling them what is and is not a suitable “self-defense weapon”.

Now use it criminally or have been convicted of a criminal offense, then we have to have “licenses”, “permits”, or other permissions before you can pack “heat”!

So Many Holes In SWIFT Sanctions On Russia, They Are Useless

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk.com, …many did not think the EU would play the SWIFT card on Russia. It turns out they were correct… SWIFT is the international payment system. Cutting off a top country from SWIFT access is a very big deal.

*** begin quote ***

The ban will only come into effect in ten days, which will allow the Russians to reorganise their banking system, and we presume, re-route payments through banks that are not affected by the sanctions. What this means is that the Swift ban falls into the SINO category: sanctions in name only. The EU is cheering on the Ukrainian side from a safe distance, watching from warm living rooms, heated by Russian gas.

*** end quote ***

# – # – # – # – #

I like that SINO term.

I always try to follow the money.

In this case, I don’t see much pressure on Russia.  Especially since the Biden / Obama coup in Ukraine to displace a democratically elect but favorable to Russia leader is the root of all this trouble.

That and the promises not to extend NATO made by lots of prior administrations.

How silly was it of Russia and Ukraine to even listen to American “promises”?  I think that Ghadafi in Lybia, Sadam in Iraq, and a vast number of others could serve as suitable examples.

Argh!

Bob Saget’s family sues to block release of death records

Saget suffered “blunt head trauma,” likely during an “unwitnessed fall” in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, according to the results of an autopsy released last week. The medical examiner said the actor suffered severe skull fractures, but his death was ruled accidental.
