January 6 Video: Capitol Police Were ‘Tour Guides’ for ‘Q Shaman’

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 6: Jacob Anthony Angeli Chansley, known as the QAnon Shaman, is seen at the Capital riots. On January 9, Chansley was arrested on federal charges of “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct …

IMHO all those folks were “lured” into a Democratic trap to discredit DJT45 and misdirect “We, The Sheeple” from the election frauds.

Immediately all those convicted of these bogus charges should be immediately exonerated.  And, all those involved in the conspiracy to make this happen should be immediately arrested and tried.

Why didn’t these defendants have these videos at their trials?  Any of the prosecuting lawyers should be disbarred!

VETERANS: A tremendous descritpion of what the naval veterans on both sides expereinces


How the Battle of Surigao Strait Brought Revenge for Pearl Harbor

  • At the Battle of Surigao Strait, a line of American battleships, raised from the mud of Pearl Harbor, decimated a Japanese task force.

At 2:43 pm on October 24, 1944, one day before the Battle of Surigao Strait, Rear Admiral Jesse B. Oldendorf received a dispatch from Vice Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, commander of the Central Philippines Attack Force. The message was straightforward and direct: “Prepare for night engagement,” and was duly logged aboard Oldendorf’s flagship, the heavy cruiser USS Louisville. Admiral Oldendorf, commander of the Leyte invasion fire support warships, was not surprised by the order. Naval intelligence had already been apprised of the fact that a Japanese force was on its way toward Leyte Gulf

 JPMorgan Chase ‘requires its tech workers give 6 months’ notice before they quit’
By Ariel Zilber — March 3, 2023 12:08pm Updated

A veteran JPMorgan Chase banker fumed over the financial giant’s policy requiring staffers to give six months’ notice before being allowed to leave for another job.

The Wall Street worker, who claims to earn around $400,000 annually in total compensation after accumulating 15 years of experience, griped that the lengthy notice period likely means a lucrative job offer from another company will be rescinded.

Taking to the social media platform Blind — which allows career professionals anonymity so that they can freely post without concern about retribution from their bosses — the worker in the e-trade division lamented over the policy.

*** end quote ***

Seems like this is a form of slavery.  Even if a well compensated form of it.  I can understand wanting to protect your business but it’s a fact of life that every night your most important asset walks out the door.  

A six month notice requirement is different IMHO than a noncompete clause.  One “indentures” you; the other just limits where you can go.

I would assume that if one litigated this, the courts would see it as slavery. 

Of course, that assumes you can get “justice” in a Gooferment court, when Big Business owns so many politicians and bureaucrats.



GOVERNACIDE: Does the EPA demonstrate “willful ignorence”?


Here’s the real reason the EPA doesn’t want to test for toxins in East Palestine

Stephen Lester

  • The agency is familiar with dioxins, having researched its adverse effects, and if they test the soil in East Palestine for it, they will find it

Thu 2 Mar 2023 09.00 EST

*** begin quote ***

The most toxic form of dioxin is 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin or TCDD. TCDD is more commonly recognized as the toxic contaminant found in Agent Orange and at Love Canal, New York and Times Beach, Missouri, both sites of two of the most tragic environmental catastrophes in US history.

*** and ***

This is important because of the adverse health effects associated with exposure to dioxins. Exposure to dioxins can cause cancer, reproductive damage, developmental problems, type 2 diabetes, ischemic heart disease, infertility in adults, impairment of the immune system and skin lesions.

The EPA is very familiar with dioxins. For more than 25 years, the agency evaluated and assessed the risks posed by exposure to dioxins. They published multiple draft reports on the health effects caused by exposure to dioxins. They published an inventory of dioxin sources and devoted an enormous amount of time to studying dioxins. The agency knows this chemical very well.

So why is EPA unwilling to test for dioxins in the soil? My guess is because they know they will find it. And if they find it, they’ll have to address the many questions people are asking. It will not be easy to interpret the results of the testing for dioxins in soil, but to avoid testing is irresponsible. The EPA’s mission is to protect human health and the environment. Clearly the situation in East Palestine is the place where EPA should follow its mission and do right by the people who live in this town. EPA must test the soil in East Palestine for dioxins.

I wonder when someone in the shoe business gets the bright idea to enable shoes for children and mentally disabled adults to have an Apple Air Tag or Tile Tracker to be inserted?  Then when someone goes missing, they can be quickly found.  Seems like an easy design change.  I was thinking about cutting the heel of a sneaker, hollowing out “cave”, putting an Air Tag in, and the epoxy the cut.  I was concerned that it might make the shoe uncomfortable.  I’m going to wait for him to outgrow his current pair and has a new pair ready to put into service.

Amsterdam had the first truly centralized monetary entity, as it opened shop in 1609, but the Bank of Amsterdam lasted longer without trouble, having “only” started collapsing in 1790. In essence, the BoA took our love of growth a little too seriously. It expanded from being mostly a storage intermediary for gold and silver to a lender. And, when it turned out it had nowhere near the gold and silver holdings it should to lend the amounts it has, a crisis hit… until banking was made very modern once again, with banks being able to lend far and away in excess of what they have.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The Prosecution and Police needed a reprimand and retraining in this case


5 Key Facts About The Jessica Chambers Murder Case | Murders and Homicides on Crimefeed | Investigation Discovery

  • Jessica Chambers suffered an agonizing death: Firefighters saw her walking toward them, wearing only her underwear & burned over 93 percent of her body.
  • On December 6, 2014, a 19-year-old cheerleader named Jessica Chambers, pictured here taking a mirror selfie, was set on fire in the small town of Courtland, Mississippi.

*** begin quote ***

Karas said that the judge concluded that any potential prosecutorial misconduct by Champion “was not prejudicial” to Tellis.

The Cell Phone Evidence

Intelligence Analyst Paul Rowlett testified about Chambers’ and Tellis’ phone data, and claimed that phone data put Chambers and Tellis together at the same location just before, or possibly even during, Chambers’ murder. The defense team has questioned Rowlett about the accuracy of the data.

Another troubling point for the defense is the fact that Tellis deleted all the texts and calls between he and Chambers after her death. Tellis, who has always maintained his innocence, stated that he deleted the data because he did not want a dead person’s information in his phone.

The cell phone data appears damning, but according to Karas, cell phone tower pings and other related evidence are not always conclusive — especially in rural areas where there are only a few towers. In these cases, she says, experts have told her that the location of the cell phone can only be narrowed down to an “around two to 10 or 20 square mile area.”

  4. The Cell Phone Evidence
  5. The New Witnesses

There were also SIGNIFICANT differences between the two trials that the second jury wasn’t told about that were dispositive.  In my recollection, they mostly went AGAINST the prosecution.

  • The shoddy police work around crime scene search may have missed critical and “finding and photographing” the keys certainly was an attempt to fabricate evidence.
  • The testimony of the first responders in the first trial was very authentic; in the second, they all sounded rehearsed and coached.
  • The cell phone data was unbelievable and unreliable.
  • Where did they dig up the witness that supposedly gave him a ride? Her testimony had to be the result of a quid pro quo from the prosecutor for her son.
  • They couldn’t find the guy that found the keys was totally bogus.

Now this fellow definitely was not the sharpest tack in the box, and probably was a “bad guy” for other things, but the prosecution failed to make a good case.

I especially like the candid gang leader who said: “If he did it, he was a pretty dumb ***** to think he could burn up a white woman in Mississippi and get away with it.”

I don’t think the prosecution came close to proving their case and how can prosecutorial misconduct NOT prejudice the case against the defendant.

Watch it and see how incompetent the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats can be.  And be thankful that you’re not their target.,

  • One patient used to drink nine cans of beer a day. The team helped her drop to three — through a badminton game with her family.

SINGAPORE: Emergency physician Desmond Mao has encountered many a drunkard. At work, the protocol was to treat their physical ailments and send them home with a referral to an addictions specialist.

Outside of work, he used to give them a wide berth. Like most people, perhaps, he “didn’t want any trouble”, he said.

But these days, his nonchalance has turned to curiosity. It was propelled by a nagging problem in Khoo Teck Puat Hospital’s (KTPH)’s emergency department, where he has been practising for some 12 years: The same patients with alcohol misuse kept returning.

These patients could come in with chest or leg pains — symptoms of overdrinking — or could be brought in by paramedics because they were on the streets, flat-out drunk. Sometimes they were “rowdy” and caused the department “a bit of grief”.

After discharge, some would “come back straight away,” said Mao. “Some of them even come back two to three times a day.”

In 2017, he was tasked to look into the issue.

Indeed, a study published in the Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs found that between 2007 and 2016, the rate of alcohol-related emergency department visits across Singapore’s hospitals had increased by 62.4 per cent.

Agriculture and reforestation: Bioinspired seed carrier improves on nature.

Aerial seeding is a crucial way to cover large and otherwise inaccessible areas, and can facilitate post-fire reforestation or wildland restoration. However, when a seed lies on the surface, it can be damaged by weather conditions or eaten by wildlife, resulting in low germination rates. Seeds of various grass species can self-bury, an ability that would be advantageous if applied to different seed types.

A new biodegradable seed carrier design inspired by the self-drilling behaviour of Erodium seeds is described in a paper in Nature. The seed carrier has a higher implantation success rate than that of Erodium seeds. This technology may improve the effectiveness of aerial seeding to address agricultural and environmental stresses in degraded regions.

The tyranny of digital currencies
Central banks are creating their own surveillance state

Should we really be surprised that the Treasury and Bank of England are exploring whether to launch a state-issued digital pound? Sunak, after all, was the chancellor who first floated the idea of backing a central bank digital currency (CBDC) — already dubbed “Britcoin”. Nor was he alone: 11 countries, including China, Nigeria, The Bahamas and Jamaica, have already launched their own digital currencies, while more than 100 others, representing over 95% of global GDP, are deciding whether to follow suit. In the United States, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has launched a pilot programme; the European Central Bank hopes to make a decision about the creation of a digital euro this autumn.

One might think that, amid a global cost-of-living crisis, these bodies would have other, more pressing concerns. But central bankers are never ones to miss an opportunity — and in fractious times like these, uncertainty is the most profitable opportunity in the business.

*** end quote ***

There is NO reason to allow the central banks to assume this much power over people’s daily live.

The Canadian Gooferment freezing the protesting truckers bank accounts, as well as anyone who donated to them, is just a taste of what ANY Gooferment can do using it’s central bak to “moderate” speech and behavior.


“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

INTERESTING: Why do cows align the way they do?

Grazing Cows Naturally Align Themselves With?

The North Star, The Wind, The Sun, The Magnetic Poles


Cows grazing, oriented North along the Earth’s North/South magnetic axis.

Answer: The Magnetic Poles

They might not be known the world over as the brightest creatures, but cows sure know how to keep an organized herd. Whether you’re watching a grazing herd in North Dakota or New Zealand, there’s one thing cows excel at: orienting themselves, en masse, along the axis of magnetic North/South.

Although scientists don’t have a definitive answer as to why cows align themselves with the magnetosphere, there are several theories: it coordinates movement among herd members, facilitates escape from a predator, ensures herd members are grazing the land efficiently by moving in the same direction together, and it may help the cows better map out their physical environment if they consistently orient themselves in the same direction.

How little we understand the physical world we live in.  “Grazing efficiently” seems correct but it’s by no means factual.

GOLDBUG: When priced in gold, beer was $3 a litre in 301AD


Gold’s Return as Money

To confirm gold’s price stability, we can go even further back to the time of Diocletian, who produced his edict of maximum prices in 301AD. The circumstances were that the purchasing power of the denarii coin was falling due to its debasement. From the edict, we find that a gramme of gold was fixed at 216 denarii, giving us a conversion value for goods listed in the edict for comparison with today. From this, we know that in today’s currency pork was about $4 a pound, sea fish about $8 a pound and a dozen eggs $3.32. Vin ordinaire was $2.96 for a 75cl bottle, and good quality wine $11.10 a bottle. Beer was $3 a litre. Clearly, prices for staples which we still consume were similar to today, irrefutable evidence that gold valued as money is stable even over thousands of years.

The gold standard did not collapse. Governments abolished it in order to pave the way for inflation. The whole grim apparatus of oppression and coercion — policemen, customs guards, penal courts, prisons, in some countries even executioners — had to be put into action in order to destroy the gold standard. Solemn pledges were broken, retroactive laws were promulgated, provisions of constitutions and bills of rights were openly defied. And hosts of servile writers praised what the governments had done and hailed the dawn of the fiat-money millennium. — Ludwig von Mises

I always use my three silver dimes for a gallon of gas in the Sixties to demonstrate that the “dollar” has lost its purchasing power due to inflation.  That and “penny candy” which has long since disappeared. 

I can’t translate what $3 per liter of beer equates to, money wise BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), I do know that a liter is about 33 fluid ounces. That’s about two 16 ounce bottles that I pay 6$ each for at the local tavern.

So in 301AD two bottles would be 3$ and today it’s 12$.

So when the politicians and bureaucrats tell you “what inflation?”, you can tell them %$^#&@( themselves.
