  1. Individuals, those who were in government and those working in the school system at the time need to be held accountable for their own individual actions, and all individuals or organizations in possession of any information pertaining to those crimes should forward that on to investigative authorities, so that those individuals who perpetrated any crime are brought to justice. In today's group think however, even though these are past crimes by individual people, much of the focus and blame will be on the so-called current collective "guilt" of or "stain" on Government, the Taxpayer, or Society (the polite self-effacing collectivist guilty Canadian... the "We"), simultaneously the favorite mystical scapegoats and paternal caretakers of the members of the collective mob... the subconscious premise being the straw man responsibility and guilt of the current generation ("original sin" inherited by birth perhaps?) justifies the thirst for self- or other-flagellation , self- or other-loathing and redistribution. IF that stupid culture of socialism could give way to individualism, current government officials would, for the most part, have no reason to cover any sins by past governments and other individuals, and promptly and simply stop covering it up and start investigating individuals ... but the group think of collective guilt gives them plenty of "reasons", personal and political, to thwart and distort justice into a Canadian woke circus.

  2. Michael, Tamed. That's the word that comes to mind in these recent times, even pre-pandemic (which played perfectly into certain hands). The taming of the collective people, not only by nanny governments but by the people who childishly need them. Again, like livestock, aptly, this shows the masses can be taught to be willingly herded and corralled with not a bleat or moo in protest.

  3. Peter, So did you look at what I presented? (The Dr. David Martin stuff.) It's "observable, verifiable and repeatable." Ditto for what Martin presents. Did you look? If you don't observe something that is readably observable, it doesn't matter what you say about it--good or bad. All you are able to do is present speculations and/or opinions from other people who told you stuff. I agree that silly people, conspiracy kooks and the like are a huge waste of time for the intelligent, but people like Dr. David Martin and Robert Kennedy, Jr., are not silly people or conspiracy kooks. Nor do they inhabit professional environments in science, law and so on that are characterized by silliness or kookiness. Instead, they are among the top in their fields. So, if people of this stature are blowing a whistle, why not observe before dismissing? As to the photographs and paintings going around of SARS-CoV-2 (like here, for example), I'm not that familiar with electron microscopy, so I have to repeat, like I said above, that I am not a person qualified to answer the many questions that arise from what Dr. David Martin, Robert Kennedy, Jr., etc. present. I only know, so far, that others from the establishment are not answering such questions with things that I can observe. I have to trust what they say, even when they come up with pictures. For example, how in hell do I know they are presenting pictures of SARS-CoV-2? They say so. That's it and that's all she wrote. Since these are people from institutions that consistently lie to the public, that's just great. The best I can say is that people from institutions that consistently lie to the public say the pictures they present are... (fill in the blank). So one of the questions I am waiting to see answered by the whistleblowers is, what are these pictures? Are they pictures and images of SARS-CoV-2 or what else could they be? Another question is, if COVID-19 doesn't exist as a virus, or there is no pandemic, what actually killed the people who reportedly died of COVID-19? There are plenty of other questions. I can't answer them objectively (so far). And they won't be answered objectively by ignoring them or taking the pronouncements of government authorities at face value. You know, if I had not seen what I have seen with the manmade climate change debacle, the stolen 2020 election, and so on, it would have never occurred to me to doubt medical scientists. Now, if I want to use Objectivist epistemology, like you say, especially the "observe" part, I believe I would be wrong to take anything (and that includes "and" and "the") modern government authorities and establishment scientists say at face value. Doctors included. Especially when gobs of money and power are in the mix. Given their truth track record, I would have to call believing them without looking at other experts and checking their pronouncements where I can, even when they occur in peer-reviewed publications, an act of faith. And faith is not a tenet of Objectivist epistemology. I'm a lay-person, not a PhD. I'm simply doing what I can to not be lied to and fall for it. I believe this is what moves you, too. (I see you as one of the good guys. ) You have more invested than I do since you can't untake the vaccine, but that is not a factor in epistemological method. Notice that our disagreements are generally over things we cannot observe and confirm. So, for many of our disagreements, I like to follow what President Trump says. "Let's see what happens." Did you catch the language? "See" is a form of observing. A statement like that--i.e. (paraphrased), waiting until there is something that can be seen in order to be certain--is pure Objectivist epistemology in action. Michael

  4. Great posts ThatGuy. When I first heard Biden say, "They are killing people," I got his message but not all the implications of him "threatening" free speech. I know there are limitations / implications on free speech when you lie or libel but this "White House Down censorship" goes beyond that. Odd. Trump is still calling people out for their bad choice of words, but I never considered him a totalitarian, just a free speech advocate. And the free speech, includes him.

  5. I want to leave a thought here that I haven't seen anyone express so far. Everybody is asking who killed Ashli Babbitt. Even President Trump asked this. The press on this point has made me want to vomit. They don't talk about it except for a few times, and then, they all dance around the issue as if dancing around issues were a virtue. Well, here's the big hungry angry rhinoceros shitting in the room that no one wants to mention. Ashli was a pretty white girl and the guy who shot her in the head in cold blood was a black police officer, a fed at that. That's the issue. The fucking story the mainstream idiots want to perpetuate in order to bolster BLM and Antifa, etc. Murder to them is not as important as the story they want to tell. Well, no one blanks out murder. It happens. And we need to tell the story of this one. Look at the mess the mainstream story made. Anywho, no links or further discussion right now because I'm going on a small trip in a few minutes. I will be back Sunday. Gonna see the Land of Lincoln with Kat tooling around the old Route 66 (now renamed). I don't expect to look at an Internet screen while we are travelling. Gotta unplug. Be good, kids... See ya' soon. Michael

  6. What a stupid argument! Of all people diagnosed with Covid, 0,8% of those vaccinated died, and 99.2% lived, therefore the vaccine caused the vaccinated to live rather than die (or to be generous, most of them). It’s a glaring non sequitur. The fact is, with or without the vaccine practically everyone lives. You could just as well argue from the given statistic that the vaccine caused 0.8% of those vaccinated to die. But of course it doesn’t prove that either. In fact the vaccine is very dangerous. See Should you get vaccinated? by Steve Kirsch, May 25, 2021 Steve Kirsch invented the optical mouse. He is Executive Director of the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund, which he set up. See also the paper, updated now and then, by Steve Kirsch and Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology: Vaccine safety evidence Updated June 27, 2021 And the blog of Dr. Meryl Nass. Mark

  7. I agree with caroljane. He knew he was being filmed as he deliberately killed George Floyd . . . and he didn't care. Overwhelming hatred was evident on Chauvin's part. You can see his foot rise off the ground as he is pressing Floyd's body down. He is warned by his peers. He continues to press after Floyd has stopped struggling and breathing. And now, the argument from intimidation or is it just reason and experience? This is old news but before I went into the Army I was in charge of the Ocean City, Maryland Sub Station jail, guarding women and juveniles. I don't remember any training that taught us to deliberately restrain a violent person until they were dead. edit. Here is another period story. When I was with the OCPD my brother was too and he walked a beat just west of the boardwalk. I went into the Army during the Vietnam War, and my brother went into the Army just after me. Unless I was in the field I had a desk job in South Korea. My brother was at Fort Carson, Colorado if I remember correctly, and he was a supply sergeant. Talk about luck.

  8. T, Isn't it odd that so many people want to keep the public from access to medicine in order to corral them into vaccine lines? It reminds me of Temple Grandin's system on how to kill cows without them getting anxiety. The whole concept is to gradually remove movement options from the cow while keeping it in a good mood, and gradually restrict its perception. In Grandin's process, a cow gradually sees less and less of what happens to the cow in front of it (which is the reason for the gradual tightening of the path into a single file, all the curves and the sudden appearance of a solid wall), it does not get to see the person who will kill it, and it does not get to see how it will be killed and disposed of. From the cow's perspective, one minute it is, then instantly it is not. I am not saying the people at the top who promoted vaccines are metaphorically doing this, but I don't rule it out, either. People who think of other human beings as human livestock (in other words, elitists) are well aware of this process. It's not a large leap to imagine one of them adapting this template, or at least the reasoning behind it, for their plans. The way the propaganda machine moves in lockstep, and what the propagandists are doing in lockstep, sure looks like a plan of gradually removing movement options from the public while keeping people in a good mood (feeling more or less safe from danger), and gradually restricting their perception.

  9. I just saw Dr. Robert Malone being interviewed by Steve Bannon. This guy is one of the inventors of the mRNA technology used in the modern vaccines. He has not spoken in lockstep with the establishment, has basically issued some warnings for people to be careful with the dangers inherent in this technology, has talked about some of those dangers, and now there is a campaign to expunge him from the Internet. Think about that. They (the establishment) are trying to expunge from history the fucking inventor of the medical platform they now use. WTF? I looked around in a quick scan and they really are doing this. It's not that they disagree with him. It's that they don't want normal people to know anything about him. Michael

  10. A friend sent me the following video which basically makes the case that the entire pandemic a hoax. Note, this is not a fringe YouTuber. Dr. David Martin is on the same basic team as Robert Kennedy Jr., who is a colleague, not just a reference. If I'm not mistaken, Dr. Martin will be a part of the shitstorm mainstream books coming at Fauci a little later this year, including one by Robert Kennedy Jr. The essence of the video is that Dr. Martin had his team examine in depth and untangle about 4,000 patents concerning viruses and vaccines and explain what they mean. What they found was that there is nothing novel about COVID-19. Nothing. It's named as a virus (COVID-19), but when presenting a scientific description, they best they can come up with is a bunch of fragments from computer models cobbled together. Nothing observable in nature. I know this will generate a lot of questions and I am not the one qualified to answer them. Listen to what they guys are saying and judge for yourself. If they are right (and they sure as hell make sense to me, especially with the mountain of evidence Martin presents), this will be a scam even bigger than the 2020 election fraud. A Manufactured Illusion: Dr David Martin with Reiner Fuellmich This was in the description: If that video goes down, here is a copy on Rumble and on Odysee. I've noticed that this video is being spread around under different titles, too. For example, on Rumble it is called "Dr. David Martin: Not novel, No pandemic, No variants...Campaign of Coercion & Terror!" and on Odysee it is called "Evidence COVID Was Deliberate For Profit: "The New Normal Campaign" by Merck Began 1/6/04." I am sure there are plenty of others at other video sites, too. Later I will get more information on what and who are involved in the video. I'm even thinking of making a transcript. I managed to get the YouTube transcript before that video gets taken down, but I would have to check it for errors (which are generally quite a few) and format it. Also, a few short stretches are spoken in German (basically Reiner Fuellmich reading user messages or questions, but there are not many). I want to see if I can get translations of those passages. This one is important. For anyone who needs something to read before I do the transcript, fortunately there is an excellent resource to back this up. Take a look at the following PDF. With over 200 pages of references, you can see just how serious this one is. The Fauci/COVID-19 Dossier There are other copies online here and here and here and here and here. I believe there are so many copies going around, all you have to do is search for it by name and you will find it somewhere. btw - Here is Kennedy interviewing Martin on video on July 13: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Interviews David E. Martin. It's on Odysee, so I'm pretty sure it will stay up. I haven't seen it yet, but I will watch it shortly. I found it at the last minute to illustrate that Kennedy and Martin are on the same level of prestige. More coming from me, but I have a feeling this is going to be all over the news before too long. So there should be plenty more coming irrespective of what I do. This story is going to be hard to suppress because it's grounded in deep research and it looks like some serious heavies who know how to get serious exposure are behind it. Michael

  11. TG, Heh. Fauci's argument paraphrased was: I did not fund at Wuhan gain of function research for the specific form of the COVID-19 virus in the world today. Instead, I funded at Wuhan gain of function research for other viruses. So you are a liar, Rand Paul. What a dork. Rand is much better at this than I thought... Michael

Fauci, in between calling Rand a liar and trying to play gotcha, is now on Senate record admitting he funded Wuhan gain of function virus research. Damn, Rand's good... Michael

  17. The Vaers system shows over 5k and the total exceeds the combined total from all reported deaths from vaccines in the last 29 yrs , combined . According to Vaers not necessarily the best mechanisms for true totals , and a comprehensive study will take years . So take the numbers as you will. They do suggest (a la Bret Weinstein ) a rather glaring ‘signal’. But whatever , handful here, handful there . Vaccinations are normally, rationally evaluated for use based on the threat of debilitating consequences of disease per individual. Guess we don’t do that anymore . Ps Oh and the hillbillies are eating Japanese dirt , inserts winky smiley face here.

  26. "OK, what exactly was the big plan for the 'insurrection' anyway? Only unserious people use that term seriously. Using Democrat standards, it was a 'mostly peaceful protest' that got out of hand." "Speaking of which, whatever you do, don’t ask about the hundreds of riots they cheered on in the name of BLM in 2020. Those were fine, even 'public health authorities' during the lockdown approved. Democrats are certain that sometimes you have to loot some innocent bystander businesses to prove your point about systemic police violence and stick it to the 'carceral state.'" "Just remember: The libs who constantly parade their tears on social media about the imminent “death of our democracy” are the ones smothering its face with a pillow in the hospital while CNN drones on in the background. And they think they’re brave for doing it." "This jaw-dropping and malicious exaggeration of Jan. 6 is weaponized now for the most underhanded purpose. The authoritarian Left is pretending to believe a coup attempt took place in order to justify the ongoing suppression of those they claim could be behind a future coup. To save our village, America, the Left is willing to burn it down." https://bucksexton.com/2021/07/anyone-who-believes-jan-6-was-an-insurrection-is-an-idiot/

  27. TG, Near the beginning of the clip, aren't those two capitol police who stepped aside to let the thug with the board come forward and start pounding on the window? If they weren't capitol police, who were they? They looked like they were police or guards of some kind trying to hold the crowd off. Why would they step aside like that? It didn't look like they were being shoved or threatened into it. btw - I say "thug" without knowing on which side the guy banging on the window belonged to. Lots of people are trying to paint this capitol event as crazed racist Trump supporters hellbent on mayhem, and others are saying the Trump supporting protestors were infiltrated by people (including the FBI, Antifa and others) to spur on violence. Regardless of where the dude came from, in my view he's a thug. Also, here is some more mainstream stuff on video from Jan. 7 showing Ashli trying to enter the broken door window on the far side and being shot. New videos capture fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt during Capitol siege I have seen several analyses of the different videos of Ashli's shooting, some giving weird interpretations (like it was staged and she is still alive) and others giving very plausible insinuations of foul play against Trump supporters. One in particular I remember showed Ashli being goaded to enter the door window by two guys who showed up out of nowhere and as she fell back from being shot, one of them kept her head from smashing against the sharp edge of the stone pillar as if he had prepared for it. Then the two guys disappeared. This was on Bitchute, so when the day arrives that I go digging for this stuff, I'm pretty sure that this analysis with different videos has not been taken down. Ashli was unarmed in all the footage and analyses I have seen. And I saw plenty. An awful lot of people filmed Anshli's shooting and a lot of footage from different angles went out on the Interwebs at the time. Then, like an on/off switch, all that went into the ether as the mainstream fake narrative machine took over... There was too much, though. Like with the plethora of election fraud evidence and now the audits, there is still all this stuff on video out there in the public and not just at places controlled by the Deep State. I believe, just like with the audits, there are very serious people setting up what to do with all this proof so that it gets presented in a manner that does not fall victim to the fake narrative machine. Think of this. President Trump took a long time to ask who shot Ashli. Does anyone really believe he would ask that question in public if he had not seen proof positive of malfeasance? Also, I repeat, the identity of Ashli's killer has been covered up all this time by the fake narrative machine because he was a black dude and she was white. That means, contrary to what the fake narrative projects, the fake narrative itself is racist and so are the people behind it. Michael

  29. I just now saw part of the livestream. President Trump Announces Lawsuits Against Twitter, Google and Facebook CEOs — Asks for Punitive Damages – Via RSBN on Rumble There will eventually be better information, but for now, President Trump said that there are many other people in talks to join in on a class action suit. Brook Rollins was asked where people can go to join in the lawsuits. She said it was a great question and gave the following URL to find out how: https://takeonbigtech.com For the time being, this redirects to a site called Constitutional Litigation Partnership, but I imagine that will change before long. Also, there is a video on that site that is a replay on Rumble of the presser. Here is the video. Constitutional Litigation Partnership (pressor on Rumble) The beginning of that video is silence. Brook Robbins comes on at about 6:59 and President Trump comes on at 11:50. Before anyone says they are private companies, remember that they were granted immunity from prosecution, they were funded by government money, they hold huge government contracts and on and on. What's worse, as President Trump laid out in his talk, they are on record in collusion with government people about government policies. There are four great things, to me, about this lawsuit (four among many that I am listing). 1. "A" team lawyers. 2. It's an open-ended class action case where people can join. 3. More suits will emerge 4. Not only are the companies being sued, the CEOs of those companies are being sued as individuals. This will drag on for at least a couple of years, but what a great campaign issue.

  33. Even George fucking Soros is now buying bitcoin. Legendary investor George Soros is trading bitcoin after eyeing digital tokens for years, report says At least he's not going to be able to manipulate it like he did other currencies to bankrupt entire nations. But if anyone can do monkey business with bitcoin, he's the asshole who can do it. The good news is he won't. Not because he doesn't want to, but because he can't. Wanna see proof? Keep watching. The only reason he's interested in bitcoin is because he knows its getting ready to spike like hell. Profit. It may be profit he doesn't control and manipulate, but it's still profit. And to people like him, he'll take profit from wherever he can get it. On the other hand, Soros getting into bitcoin is actually a great proof of concept test to show just how robust bitcoin is as personal property. If he can't wreck it, nobody can. Michael

I think this last will be his legacy in centuries to come rather than his promotion of endless war for profit.

  39. Depends on the product. Natural gas pipelines are highly pressurized so that the gas turns into a liquid(under pressure). Oil pipelines are low pressure often a diluent is added to thin it to increase flow/keep it from waxing off. Oil pipelines also have “pigging stations”. A “pig “ is sent into a section of line and scrapes it to remove any build up. Also in both pipelines “smart pigs” are sent down a line that monitors corrosion. Over time it gives data as to expected life of the line and when/where repairs may be needed.

  41. Here is a fascinating showdown from a couple of months ago between Michael Saylor and Frank Giustra hosted by Stansberry. Frank Giustra is a gold bug and Michael is a bitcoin visionary. One of the really interesting things I detected in this debate is how often Giustra disparaged Michael as a person, his knowledge, his ability to reason, and so on. But Michael kept upbeat, kept to his reasons for promoting bitcoin, and probably won the debate in the minds of many based on manners alone. I discussed this in a post about The Ayn Rand Podcast (see here, the part where I discussed Mike Lindell). As to the arguments themselves, Michael Saylor came super-prepared in his facts, history, logic, principles and so on. Most of Frank Giustra's arguments boiled down to two points: (1) The governments and central banks in the world will never allow bitcoin to become a greater store of value than gold, they will take out bitcoin by force. Full stop. And by the way, (2) Michael Saylor is an idiot. Granted, he didn't say so directly, but that subtext was as clear as an old time train whistle. If, like me, you are just now learning about bitcoin, this is a great video to watch. Despite the one-sided friction on Giustra's part, there was a lot of great information imparted. And, to be fair, it's a great thing to get push-back the way Giustra did. He's no fool and he did come up with some angles that are great to think about as balance. Michael

  45. I didn't read Peter's post as "intimidation", but I could see how it would be an appeal to "authority", even if I personally thought it was a genuine attempt to apply relevant personal experience. But maybe I'm missing the larger context. [Edit: I went to the lexicon to look up "argument from authority", but didn't find it. Not even sure if it's a concept she directly named, now; maybe it's subsumed under "argument from intimidation?" I dunno where I heard it, now...but whatever the correct term, I didn't think Peter (this time) was engaging in either...]

  46. Carol, That's like being in the middle of a major war and asking for a list of unfinished hostilities that are pertinent. Frankly, the list is too large to present right now without making a full-time job of it. You will find a lot of information at the thread on election fraud. But here's one thing at least. Sidney Powell is reemerging and like a Kraken at that. While the mainstream press was spending its time laughing at her, she's been busy, busy, busy. Her site will give you just a taste of what's out there: Defending The Republic. As to Steve Bannon's efforts, he doesn't speculate on if and when Biden will be removed and Trump sworn in. He just says, "Let's get this stage done right and worry about that later." Even Trump says that. But each of Steve's guests comes with a string of pertinent things to look at. Mike Lindell is projecting it will be this year if you want something to laugh about. But he has some dead serious court-cases cooking that have huge potential to get to the Supreme Court on fast-track. Imagine how funny it will be if Biden goes down due to a pillow-maker. I can just see the headlines. "Biden got taken out in a pillow fight." Michael

  48. A Jew speaks.... When WE were led into the gas chambers, THEY said nothing. When WE were forcibly converted, THEY said nothing. When WE were thrown out of a country just for being Jews, THEY said nothing. BUT when WE now defend ourselves, all of a sudden THEY have something to say. How did WE take our revenge on the Germans for their "Final Solution?" How did WE take revenge on the Spanish for their Inquisition? How did WE take revenge on Islam for being Dhimmis? How did WE take revenge on the lies of the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion?" WE studied our Torah, WE innovated in medicine, WE innovated in defense systems, WE innovated in technology, WE innovated in agriculture, WE composed music, WE wrote poetry, WE made the desert bloom, WE won Nobel prizes, WE founded the movie industry, WE financed a fledgling democracy, WE fulfilled the word of G-d by becoming a Light Unto the Nations of the Earth. DEAR WORLD, when You criticize us for defending our heritage and our ancestral homeland -- WE, the Jews of the world, do exactly what You did to/for us; WE IGNORE YOU. You have proven to us for the last 2,000 years that when the chips are down, animosity towards Jews reigns supreme. Now leave us alone -- and go sort out problems in your own back yard whilst WE continue our 5778-year old mission of enhancing the world we all share. -The Jews

  49. Wow this guy... I tell you, it's nice to hear this stuff he says the "A" word, the "S" words (both of them), the "F" word, and almost lays out the principle of the creation of wealth... The more I hear the more I like:

  50. (1) On Nathaniel's list today, there was a post by Michael Lee which catalyzed something I've been on the edge of realizing: how horrified I am by the amount of...what word do I want? I'll settle for now for the word "venom"...which is emerging in the latest battles over Rand and the Brandens. I'm reminded of a line from "Judgment at Nuremburg": "Are we going to do this again?" For me, and for the Brandens, and for others old enough to have been there at the time of the original split, this is the third major time the battle has been fought (the second time was when David Kelley invited Nathaniel to speak at IOS in '96). Why is there such intensity? Why do people get so personally involved in what happened between Rand and the Brandens? What is at stake for people? And a more overarching question: Why do Objectivists act the way they do? Why do they savage each other's characters over disagreements? Why are they so quick on the trigger finger with condemnations? What is the source of these behaviors? Is it something in Objectivism itself which encourages moralism? I believe that there is something in Objectivism, an attitude which was conveyed by Rand, although I think it would be possible to filter that attitude out. But many Objectivists don't seem to want to filter it out; instead they seem to want to cling to it; they seem to derive a sense of virtue from judgmentalness. (2) By contrast, in reading the posts here today, I've been feeling: How interesting it is, the differences in background, in life stories amongst various persons on this list. And how amicable it's thus far been here -- as Roger said, a kind of haven from the you-know-what going on you-know-where. And the amicability doesn't feel to me forced, instead natural. That always-be-alert-for-evil attitude prevalent among Objectivists seems to me to be missing here. So why is that? Why is it missing? Is there a general characteristic which is present which accounts for the absence? Ellen ___
