Does this mean we should be free speech absolutists? That anything goes, verbally, or in writing? No. There is a class of statements that should be banned by law and heavily punished: threats.

If I say to you, give me $100 or I’ll shoot you, or kidnap you child, those are only words. However, I would be a criminal if I seriously said or wrote them to you.

But Alex Jones did nothing even widely approaching such a statement. Yes, he lied about a tragic historical event. But he didn’t even close to engage in libel or slander. Ok, he hurt feelings. That should not be considered a criminal act. He is entirely innocent of the charges laid against him.

First, I’m not a fan of Alex Jones.  And, he has a First Amendment right to publish his theories.  And, I don’t think Sandy Hook was “crisis actors”.

But, I don’t understand how an FBI agents get 90M$ from Alex by any stretch of law or logic.

Hurt feelings aren’t a windfall opportunity.

I am horrifies by the tragedy.

The Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats failed the public in so many ways in this and other shooting cases.  But they pay no penalty.

I don’t see how Alex Jones broke “the law”; maybe common decency or maybe common sense, but that’s about it.

I wonder if this will go to SCOTUS?

GOLDBUG: When does the clock strike midnight and Cinderella’s dream world end?

The Upside-Down World of Currency

*** begin quote ***

The gap between fiat currency values and that of legal money, which is gold, has widened so that dollars retain only 2% of their pre-1970s value, and for sterling it is as little as 1%. Yet it is commonly averred that currency is money, and gold is irrelevant.

*** and ***

At some stage, the inversion of monetary reality, where legal money is priced in fiat, will change. Instead of legal money being priced in fiat, fiat currencies will be priced in legal money. But that will be the death of the fiat swindle.

*** end quote ***

Goldbugs have been predicting disaster since the 60’s when the welfare / warfare state went financially nuts.

It’s hard not to be a permanent-bear when the “facts” seem so obvious.

Nothing seems to wake up “We, The Sheeple” who are sleepwalking towards this economic disaster.

Look at modern day Japan that has a debt to GDP of 230%.  The USA is 124%.  This is pure insanity.

What can we tell future generations other than “sorry suckers; deal with it”?

What should we be telling people to do?  Like Casandra, the Oracle at Delphi, who could see the future but couldn’t change it.

If I was advising a youngster, then it would be to study and live like the Amish. Buy land, do some farming, bury some bullion, get a cheap education, minimize your wants, and prepare for the hard times to come.

Success for your generation is: (1) ruthless financial discipline — no bad debt; (2) a life long interest in learning — education — a degree — they can’t take it away from you; (3) a NON-OFFSHORABLE white collar job in order to save big bux; (4) a blue collar skill for hard times — never saw a poor plumber; (5) one or more internet based businesses — your store is always open; (6) a free time hobby that generates income; and (7) a large will-maintained network of people who can “help” you.

Like the Amish!

Argh!

Sorry, but when Bill Maher thinks that voter id wouldn’t impact minority voters, then obviously the elections are so corrupt as to be humorous.

Try and do almost anything without an id?  

Sorry, but everything that I’ve seen makes me think that the politicians and bureaucrats like the current chaos just fine.

I don’t but it appears that “We, The Sheeple” just don’t care.

TINFOILHAT: Covid Vaccines Cover-up? (Governmental / Commercial Conspiracy Theory)

Covid Vaccines Cover-up
By Chuck Baldwin
September 9, 2022

*** begin quote ***

Proof That Serious Safety Problems Existed With The Covid Vaccines And Were Deliberately Covered Up

Steve Kirsch has an explosive investigative report: [N.B. Link below]

Israel didn’t start to gather safety data until a year into the vaccine program. They gathered 6 months worth of data and found that the vaccines weren’t safe so they lied to the world about it.

This is the most important article on my Substack (which has over 700 articles). This one article has enough information regarding both harms and corruption that it should bring down the house of cards if there is just one honest person in a position of authority in the world.

We now have proof of:

1. Serious side-effects of unknown duration, perhaps irreparable

2. Causality: these were not just “coincidences”

3. Government corruption to hide these harms

4. Correlation between vaccine doses and deaths from multiple independent studies on multiple independent datasets

5. No interest in seeing the expert report or the video from any mainstream news media, any member of the mainstream medical community, any lawmaker, any public health official anywhere in the world

The precautionary principle of medicine now demands an immediate halt to the COVID vaccination program.

The key facts in a nutshell:

1. The Israeli health authority knew the vaccines were harming people: the side effects of the vaccine are neither mild nor short term. In fact, in 65% of the neurological cases that mentioned duration, the symptoms are all on-going.

2. They also established causality: the side effects were caused by the vaccine. This is something no one else had been able to establish before.

3. They don’t know how serious the harm is because they only looked at the data for the top five categories. Cardiovascular was #6. So they have only looked at a fraction of the data.

4. The researchers do not know the prevalence of these serious side effects because they were just provided with the numerator, not the denominator (similar to VAERS).

5. The Israeli authorities deliberately covered up the safety issues and hid it from the world, issuing a false report essentially saying “there is nothing new to see here folks, move along.”

6. The only good news in all of this is that Israel protected Palestinians from getting this very unsafe vaccine. That was very humane of the Israelis.

7. The Israeli people aren’t stupid. They have figured out the vaccines are “unsafe and ineffective” (my new tagline for the vaccines… what do you think? catchy isn’t it?) and are no longer complying with government directives to be vaccinated. Just 2.4% of the Israeli population is “in compliance” as of Sept 2, 2022:

Did you know that according to an analysis of data from the MoH, the COVID vaccine kills 40 times more old people than it saves?

Dr. Herve Seligmann works at the Emerging Infectious and Tropical Diseases Research Unit, Faculty of Medicine, Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France. He is of Israeli-Luxembourg nationality.

Using Israel MoH data, Haim Yative and Dr. Seligmann, Israeli researchers, found that the COVID-19 vaccine killed 40 times (40x) the amount of elderly people than the disease would have and 260 times more younger people than would have died from the virus in a 3 week period shortly after the shots.

This is a blockbuster exposé. If there was ANY honesty and integrity among America’s federal government and the national news media, this report would be the most prominent news story nationwide and a cessation of the Covid vaccines distribution would be issued immediately.

The fact that almost everyone in the U.S. government, national news media and medical industry is totally ignoring and continuing to cover up the truth about the dangers of the Covid vaccines shows just how deep the corruption runs in our country.

What many of us have been saying for over two years is now categorically proven correct: Covid vaccinations are kill shots; and they have been from day number one.

You need to read Kirsch’s report in its entirety and spread it as far and wide as you can.

OK!  Here we have an assertion of a massive International cover up. It’s a Governmental / Commercial Conspiracy Theory.  And I’d assign it a “3. More likely than not” veracity level.

That means to me that the alternative media is calling the Gooferment, Big Pharma, and Corporate Media criminal liars.

What will happen next is unclear to me.  But it is obvious that people are noticing.

RANT: Is the USA in moral decay and decline?

Is Vladimir Putin A Christian?
By Chuck Baldwin

*** begin quote ***

Russia’s leader has been demonized more than any national leader since Adolf Hitler. Does he deserve it? Is he the monster the mainstream media paints him to be, or is he actually a devout Christian man trying to save his country from a corrupt, decadent West?

From Russian-Faith.com

Putin continuously makes it clear that he envisions Russia as a Christian country.

In 2014, Putin called for the restoration of Kremlin’s historic Chudov (“of the Miracle”) and Voznesensky (Ascension) monasteries both of which were destroyed by the Bolsheviks. He also wants another church destroyed by the Bolsheviks in the Kremlin to be rebuilt.

The Kremlin is both the political and historic center not just of Moscow but of Russia. By calling for the restoration of these Christian buildings Putin repudiated the Soviet legacy with its atheist ideology and its record of anti-Christianity and reaffirms Orthodoxy as the heart of Russian culture.

A key element of Putin’s worldview is not just his commitment to the Russian Orthodox Church as an institution, but also his admiration for three 19th and 20th century Russian Christian philosophers—Nikolai Berdyaev, Vladimir Solovyov and Ivan Ilyin, all of whom he often quotes in his speeches. Russia’s regional governors were even instructed to read the works of these philosophers during their 2014 winter holidays.

Studying the causes of Russia’s 20th century tragedy, Ilyin wrote:

“The Russian revolution is a reflection of the religious crisis we are living through now, an attempt to establish an anti-Christian public and state system thought up by Friedrich Nietzsche and economically and politically realized by Karl Marx. This anti-Christian virus was exported to Russia from the West…..

Losing our bond with God and the Christian tradition, mankind has become morally blind and gripped by materialism, irrationalism and nihilism.”

In Ilyin’s view, the way to overcome this global moral crisis is for people to return to “eternal moral values”, which he defined as “faith, love, freedom, conscience, family, motherland and nation” but above all “faith and love”.

“To make Russia great again the Russian people should believe in God. This faith will strengthen their minds and willpower. It will make them strong enough to overcome themselves.”

It’s difficult to really know the truth about Putin. I must confess that the more I hear the man speak, the more impressed I am with him. And, no, I haven’t forgotten that words are often cheap.

What I do know is the man who is now identified as America’s president is one of the most corrupt, duplicitous, tyrannical and evil world leaders to ever draw a breath. With a totally warped, wicked, warmongering idiot sitting in the Oval Office, it gives Americans very little room to criticize anyone else’s leader.

*** end quote ***

An interesting perspective.  Perhaps there is a real element of truth in this! That the USA is descending into moral decay just like the Roman Empire and Russia is returning to the path up and out of the moral decay of Communism.

Certainly worth considering when you see the Hollywood, the East and West coast elite, and politicians & bureaucrats, how they live and the morals they espouse.

Sigh!  Sadly.

Let’s proceed to set our own house in order.

TINFOILHAT: Why didn’t “We, The Sheeple” ask questions before believing the Gooferment “experts”?

“Crazy” Questions Everyone Should Have Asked About Covid-19
By Brian J. Foley — August 3, 2022

*** begin quote ***

One of the most astonishing things about the past two-plus years and counting has been how asking certain questions gets one branded as “crazy,” “stupid,” “conspiracy theorist,” etc. Questions that, had you asked “Before COVID,” would have been … normal.

So let’s dig into our closets and put on our now-sort-of-out-of-fashion clothes, get into a time machine and travel back to, say, 2014. (I pick 2014 to “control” for the Trump Derangement Syndrome that gripped about half the country and most media the next year.)

Government officials and media breathlessly tell us that a deadly virus is rampant, and that we must take particular measures, including vaccinating everyone. Before rolling up your sleeve for an injection, you would (ask) questions.

*** and ***

First, the COVID-19 debacle — meaning not only the deaths from the illness but the collateral damage from the response — would not have occurred had these questions been asked prominently and often by a critical mass of citizens and in “mainstream” media. We would have stopped after the first set of questions regarding the severity of the illness! There was no need to do anything beyond staying home when sick and washing one’s hands regularly and taking extra care around unhealthy people.

Second, not only did a critical mass of people fail to ask basic questions, but many people, perhaps most prominently the “educated,” denounced, bullied, and harassed anyone who did. These “educated” bullies even proposed and supported grotesque coercions, including shunning, barring the “unvaccinated” from going into stores and restaurants — and earning a living.

*** end quote ***

For the life of me, I don’t know the answer to that question.

I held out for the longest time before getting “the jab”.  While I had comorbidities, my cardiologist and my GP both said “wait” for few months before giving me the green light.

Of course, right after — 24 hours — after getting the second shot, I go Covid.  

Coincidence or causal?  I’ll never know.

But I keep reading about vaccine injuries and early deaths and wonder could this be “yet another conspiracy theory” on its way to becoming true?

Only time will tell.

One thing is for sure Big Pharma and the vaccine cheerleaders made a lot of money off this pandemic!
