Why Are U.S. Taxpayers Providing Public Pensions To Millionaire Members Of Congress?

Taxpayers provide pensions, generous pensions, to many millionaires who once worked in government. Not JUST those who were in Congress. (From Forbes) As the longest-serving member of Congress, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) would qualify for a yearly pension of $167,040 if he retired today.

20 striking findings from 2020 | Pew Research Center

A large majority of U.S. adults (86%) say there is some kind of lesson or set of lessons for mankind to learn from the coronavirus outbreak, and about a third (35%) say these lessons were sent by God. In open-ended survey responses collected by the Center in the summer, Americans pointed to practical lessons, such as wearing a mask; personal lessons, such as remembering the importance of spending time with family and loved ones; and societal lessons, such as the need for universal health care. Other responses were political in nature, including criticisms of both major parties and concerns about the politicization of the pandemic.

I agree about the “politicization of the pandemic”.

I, for one, am not sure that there is a “pandemic”, or an “epidemic”.

Evidence is that: (1) adjusting the number of “cycles” in PCR testing seems to dial up whatever result you want; and (2) no one has identified the “corona virus” yet.

Hell, there’s even a Conspiracy Theory” that “corona 19 virus” may be a vitamin defiiency. I have a lot of sympathy for this question about the #wuflu.


MONEY: Bloomberg Intelligence Projects $50 Silver in 2021 | SchiffGold

DECEMBER 23, 2020  BY SCHIFFGOLD   0   0 Saxo Bank recently projected silver will soar to $50 an ounce in 2021, powered by loose monetary policy along with the push for “green energy.” Bloomberg Intelligence is now making a similar call, saying silver will be “the primary metal” benefiting from electrification and quantitative easing in 2021. Gold set a new record earlier this year and briefly traded above $2,000 an ounce. In a recent report, Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone predicted silver will follow gold toward a record high of its own.

Levin: On Jan. 6, we learn whether our Constitution will hold – TheBlaze

At no time did the framers even raise the possibility that governors, attorneys general, secretaries of state, election boards, administrators, etc., would play any significant role in the electoral process. Indeed, certain of those offices did not even exist. Moreover, as I said, the courts were rejected out of hand. Thus, such an important power was to be exercised exclusively by the state legislatures.

Sidney Powell interview on Rush Limbaugh show…”Absolutely Unprecedented” | Populist Press 2021 ©

“The very night of the election many people saw something that they had never seen before in the history of our elections. They saw votes being changed on the screen in front of them, going from President Donald Trump to Joe Biden. On top of that, the morning after the election, even that night, the voting stopped. They stopped counting in multiple districts at the same time before the vote got to 270 electors for President Trump. That’s never happened before. The only time votes have ever stopped being counted in this country on election night was when the Broward County problem developed over Hanging Chad’s in one county in FL. So for FIVE states to stop counting on election night is absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. And they did it because the vote count for the electoral college was about to hit [+ go over] 270 for President Donald Trump, because of the massive outpouring of votes for him that night. By the next morning, multiple mathematicians had contacted me and told me they knew the algorithm that had been run to change the votes. It was that obvious to people with mathematical expertise. It is a mathematical impossibility for 100’s of thousands of votes to show up for VP Biden alone and to have been injected into the system the way that they were. We have eye-witness testimony of countless people who saw votes coming in, in unsecured containers and improper means and looking different the night of the election. These people have come forward at great personal risk to themselves & their families to provide thousands of affidavits of voting abnormalities and actual crimes that they witnessed happen on election night. The very fact that the other side is working so hard to hide all of this. Federal law requires transparency in our electoral process and our elections.” There is a federal statute that requires all the documents pertaining to the election to be maintained for 22 months following an election, for the very reason that it has to be completely auditable. A Federal Judge in October [in ATL] found all kinds of problems w/ the Dominion system that GA bought and crammed down for everybody across the state to use. That’s where the most problems have been, is in GA. Witnesses have come forward, there was supposedly a water leak that they shut down voting for. That was an abject lie. We have video of witnesses pulling suspect ballots out from under a table after they ran off all the observers. Somebody told me that one of the people that did that has told gov’t officials how it happened and what happened. But has that information been provided to the public? No. There is rampant voter fraud of all kinds. Federal violations of 5 years + more across the country by virtue of all the misconduct on election night. The flipping of votes by Dominion is even advertised, on their ability to do that, to run a fraction, to make a Biden vote count 1.26% and a Trump vote to only count 0.74%. They’ve done it before. They’ve done it in Venezuela. They done it in other foreign countries. They’ve done it in THIS country. We have evidence even that it was done in 2016 in CA to benefit Hillary or Bernie Sanders, and it’s been done in other local elections and smaller elections in different places. This is the only time it’s been this widespread, and the reason it didn’t work this time, they’ve been able to shave these votes for a long time, but the reason it didn’t work completely this time and they had to shut down in so many places was because so many Trump supporters poured out on the day of the election to vote for President Donald Trump in what was a LANDSLIDE victory, a historic victory, is because it BROKE the algorithm. That’s why they had to stop counting that night. That’s why they had to bring in ballots and try to back-fill. And it still doesn’t work, because there are still 100’s of thousands of more votes than there were voters to vote them. The math simply doesn’t add up. And if they had nothing to hide, why aren’t they providing transparency into the voting systems of the United States of America, the country that is founded upon the Rule of Law and is supposed to be above all this? It is absolutely the most appalling criminal operation in the history of our country.”

HEALTH: How COVID-19 Changes Our Sleep – The Atlantic

The goal, then, is breaking out of this cycle, or preventing it altogether. Here the benefits of sleep extend throughout the body. “Sleep is important for effective immune function, and it also helps to regulate metabolism, including glucose and mechanisms controlling appetite and weight gain,” Miller says. All of these bear directly on COVID-19, as risk factors for severe cases include diabetes, obesity, and sleep apnea. Even in the short term, getting enough deep, slow-wave sleep will optimize your metabolism and make you maximally prepared should you fall ill. These effects may even bear on vaccination. Flu shots appear to be more effective among people who have slept well in the days preceding getting one.

In This Season of Giving, States Are Exploring New Extremes of Tax-Taking

A case being brought directly to the Supreme Court will likely have some far-reaching effects for state governments. Recently the state of New Hampshire filed a petition with SCOTUS to curtail neighboring Massachusetts from taxing its residents. The issue is that a large amount of the citizens commute to nearby Boston, and other areas inside the Baked Bean state, and in the days now of office closures and remote working those citizens are now working from home. That is, they are working inside New Hampshire.

Back then the talk in the front seat of the car between my parents was New York City’s bankruptcy. My dad, NYPD at the time, was as much a part of this as anyone since the Police pension fund helped bail out the city government back then.

INNOVATION: Tiny homes see to solve homelessness?


$130,000 for an 8-foot-by-8-foot shed? That’s what L.A. is paying in a bid to house the homeless
DEC. 12, 2020

*** begin quote ***

Combining public and private funds, the nonprofit now manages 550 tiny homes in villages on public property, private property and church property around the Seattle area. It costs from $300,000 to $500,000 to set up 40 or 50 homes, depending on the sewer connection, Lee said. Portable toilets initially used have been replaced by permanent bathrooms and showers.

The villages function as communities, with residents all performing chores and, at some, taking part in self-governance.

Seattle’s citizen-driven model never got traction in Los Angeles.

When a self-styled homeless activist started delivering hand-made tiny homes to people living on the streets, the city ruled the structures illegal and quickly stamped out the movement.

VETERANS: Nemo Resideo


America’s MIAs: Coming Home
By Christopher D. Brady
December 21, 2020
*** begin quote ***

On December 23, 1944, 24 year old Captain Lawrence Dickson flew his P-51D Mustang on a routine surveillance mission into Italy and crashed. He became one of the 27 Tuskegee Airmen (Red Tails) Missing in Action (MIA) in World War II.  In spite of a post-war scouring of Europe for U.S. service members, it took 68 years to locate his crash site.  His remains were excavated in August 2017 and identified 15 months later using advanced DNA techniques.  This is indicative of how difficult it is to locate, excavate, and then identify missing service members.

*** end quote ***

The concept of the Latin phrase nemo resideo, or “leave no one behind,” is almost as old as warfare itself. Greek mythology portrayed heroes who rescued those captured by enemies.

Unfortunately we have in the past and I guess “we” will in the future.

Personally, I think that the politicians and bureaucrats should be held to account for the girls and boys who ARE left behind!


Maybe then they will be incentivized to get everyone home?

Trump attorney Jesse Binnall’s CENSORED Senate testimony on election fraud in Nevada | Sharyl Attkisson

A summary of what Binnall testified to is:

* Aug. 3, 2020 after the legislative session, Nevada legislatures made changes to election law that included universal mail voting without sufficient safeguards to authenticate voters or ensure only one ballot was sent to each legally qualified voter.

*The number of such ballots rocketed from 70,000 in 2016 to 690,000 in 2020.

* 42,000 people voted more than once, as determined by reviewing list of voters and comparing it to other voters with the same name, address and date of birth.

* At least 1,500 dead people are recorded has having voted.

* 19,000 people who didn’t live in Nevada voted, not counting military or students.

* 1,000 people voted using nonexistent addresses.

* 15,000 people cast votes from disallowed commercial addresses.

* Almost 4,000 noncitizens illegally voted.

* Two technical experts came forward independently and reported that the number of votes changed overnight while the voting machines were stored.

* The Trump team was denied examination of the relevant USB drives.

* Officials with more evidence obstructed and stonewalled.

TINFOILHAT: Could the WuFlu “pandemic” be the USA’s “Reichstag fire”?


There Is No Covid Health Crisis and There Is No Virus Pandemic: There Is Only Long-Planned Orchestrated Tyranny
By Gary D. Barnett
December 18, 2020

*** begin quote ***

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

~ Albert Camus

While loyalty to self and truth is not slavery, allegiance to any country, government, or ruling class is slavery. Inherent in this thinking is the fact that believing or trusting any ruling individual or entity without absolute verification at every level, is the basis for societal destruction at the hands of the few due to blind obedience to falsely claimed authority. Lies and deceit are the tools of tyrants, and come in the forms of outright deception to manipulative propaganda. These traits are always evident, but today they are completely overt, as lies and truth are both used in devious ways in order to gain compliance and control.

This can be seen in that a non-existent virus pandemic has been used to instill great fear in the unsuspecting minds of the masses to such an extent, that most have been willing to give up all normalcy and sanity in their lives and the lives of their families. They have due to false trust been duped into behavior that can only be described as psychotic in nature. This has led to voluntary self-imprisonment, isolation, business and job destruction, mask wearing, travel immobilization, and total lockdowns. It has led to greater sickness, death, and economic devastation as well, all in the name of ‘health security’ and obedience to power at the expense of all freedom. This should serve as the final valuable lesson learned by even the most common of men, because it should be obvious that relying on the state in any capacity whatsoever can only lead to an enslaved society dependent on a master class for its very existence and survival. This of course is what is sought; a communistic based technocratic ‘civilization’ controlled by the few.

Everything that happens with governments and the entire state apparatus is planned in advance. Nothing concerning the ruling class is organic or natural in any way. All action and reaction to any event by the government and its controllers is by design. Most everything that happens has been foretold or predicted by the state oligarchic perpetrators. This is usually done by very deceptive means meant either to create a false crisis, or to use indoctrination methods in order to plant in the minds of the people what to expect from some imagined future adversary or terrifying event that has already been devised or created. These tactics of course are psychological in nature, but if the psyche of the majority can be captured to such an extent as to cause the proper desired reaction, then they can be easily controlled. In a world of logic and reason, this current situation should serve as definitive proof of this hypothesis, but sadly, I doubt that any such mass revelation by the people at large will be forthcoming. I base this on Einstein’s statement that doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome is insanity. This seems to sum up the mentality of the American herd.

INNOVATION: Time to replace Gooferment Skrules with Parent’s choice


In the age of COVID, give parents ‘school choice’ on best way to educate their children | Opinion
DECEMBER 15, 2020 05:13 PM

*** begin quote ***

Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida’s Department of Education rightly have continued to urge, and require, all public schools to provide the choice of live in-person instruction for all students. Plenty of attention has been paid — correctly — to the public-health issues involved in opening public schools safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, but one aspect has been mostly overlooked: The question of keeping schools open, like other matters of educational opportunity, is also a civil-rights issue.

*** end quote ***

It’s hard to imagine a more “broken system” than “education” in the USA.

Remember that the origins of Gooferment Skrules comes from Horrace Mann emulating the Prussian schools.

The true purpose of these “systems” was to create: cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite!

If the WuFlu is real, and I think that’s still an issue for further discussion, then perhaps the birth of “remote education” is the silver lining.

Could it break the strangle hold that the teachers’ unions have on the politicians and bureaucrats?

One can only hope!


Horowitz: So much for state election powers: SCOTUS blocks Kansas from requiring proof of citizenship to vote – TheBlaze

We’ll likely have to carry around papers to show we were vaccinated in order to live, even unfreely with masks, in this society, but illegal aliens can vote. That is the upshot of the latest insidious Supreme Court decision to allow lower courts to shred all voter verification processes in election law.

For the past few weeks, we’ve been told “states’ rights” force us to pursue a “live and let live” policy toward state governors who violate the state’s election law to weaken voter integrity laws. However, this principle is evidently a one-way street and doesn’t apply to governors who want to follow, not break, state voter integrity laws. Then, the federal courts have every right to get involved and nullify those laws, and the Supreme Court doesn’t seem to be concerned about the 10th Amendment and Art. I Sec. 4, which dictate that state legislatures prescribe the “Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections.”
