  1. Another reason to look at the goings on around the Q Continuum is to understand the psychology of others, since we do, after all, live in a society where both the leadership and voters have an impact on our direct lives, now, via lockdowns and the economy, restricting our freedom of speech and threatening worse. Conversely, it's worth it to observe the religious beliefs of those in opposition to those forces, to see what keeps them ticking, and to compare and contrast to O'ism. After all, Rand did write, in "What Can One Do?", that while it wouldn't be good to join with conservatives or libert

  3. Glad to hear people of influence or accomplishment are actually open to the ideas discussed here. I understand and respect their privacy. Rand discussed a great many things... she identified single State corruption, a swamp on a small scale... but without an inking of the technology of today could she even have in her wildest dreams thought of such a global elitist oligarchy attempting to enslave the entire world as it is today? Had she ever thought these petty technocrat busy bodies in government, big tech and the media would ever be so bold as to proclaim to all, their ideal tw

  4. Objectivist leaders: Something has gone wrong when some Objectivist leaders accept the idea of supposed free trade that includes trade with tyrants, for example, trade with Kantians, Pragmatists, Muslim Iran, or Communist China. There is no free trade with tyrants which operate according to the principle of force and not by the principle of individual rights. Free trade, individual rights, and private property are not possible in dealings with tyrannical individuals or governments. Perhaps not even possible with Objectivist leaders who endorse trade with tyrants or advocates of

  5. I have literally no idea what the letter who shall not be named is/was/could be/have been, but the spark I refuse to let die is the recognition that so much in the world right now is 'just not right' and that sparks draws up some anger when I feel as if no one else can see It or fails to call it out. That was always the thing that initially drew me to nameless letter the allegory of righteousness , bold righteousness in the face of all this shit.

  8. ThatGuy, Since World War II the U.S. has been in a new phase of degradation to which Rand was pretty much oblivious. Socialism vs. Capitalism, Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative is now just entertainment, like television wrestling, hiding venal, thieving, murdering Mafia-like corruption. It makes “taxing the rich” or “robbing Peter to pay Paul” look good. I wrote “pretty much” because once in a while Rand would acknowledge that something more sinister than differences in political philosophy was going on. The only example I can think of at the moment is when, in an essay, s

  9. The military needs us Finally, I see something concrete people can do to remove the impostor and restore correct election procedures and shake off the threat of a socialist/communist takeover to boot. The latest Situation Update video by Mike Adams lays it out. Granted, this particular video is more on the surface than deep and it is a bit choppy, but this one--I believe--is about as real as I know without seeing it with my own eyes. I think it's one of Mike's best videos big-picture-wise. And it convinces me Mike's military contacts are the real deal and high up. Situation Upda

  10. Today Rudy Giuliani issued the following statement: “Dominion’s defamation lawsuit for $1.3B will allow me to investigate their history, finances, and practices fully and completely. The amount being asked for is, quite obviously, intended to frighten people of faint heart. It is another act of intimidation by the hate-filled left-wing to wipe out and censor the exercise of free speech, as well as the ability of lawyers to defend their clients vigorously. As such, we will investigate a countersuit against them for violating these Constitutional rights.”

"No, Q and “Trust The Plan” is Nothing Like OPERATION TRUST, It’s not a Pacification PSYOP and Here’s Why." https://stillnessinthestorm.com/2021/01/no-q-and-trust-the-plan-is-nothing-like-operation-trust-its-not-a-pacification-psyop-and-heres-why/ Make of this what you will.

He also mentioned that if the ballots are destroyed before the 22 months are up, that is grounds for invalidating the election and removing the so-called winner from office. He also said that a military option is so much better optics-wise with Trump out of the way. When they intervene based on foreign takeover of the election or something similar, they won't be seen as being Trump's lackeys. And when they

John Earle Sullivan, a Black Lives Matter Activist and anti-Trumper, was charged by complaint with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their o

Investigators pursuing signs US Capitol riot was planned Since this is a CNN article, I had to hold my nose and try not to vomit to read it just to see if Carmine Sabia's claim was accurate. It is. However, one part is fact with a thing left out, and the other part is a logical inference. CNN has become so epistemologically corrupted amidst its constant tangle of lies, I bet no one there even thought about this. First the fact. The article actually is all about the attack being planned. And the article is p

  23. Ellen, That could only happen after he leaves office. I doubt the Senate under McConnell will even schedule a trial. And the Senate can't convict President Trump if he is not in office. The purpose of the trial is to decide if he should stay in office or to remove him. According to Dershowitz, there is no such thing as an impeachment trial solely to strip a former president of his political rights. There is a problem with the impeachment, though. Once again, according to Dershowitz, President Trump's speech that the Dems are trying to hold up as a smoking gun is protected by the Cons

  25. Things are looking bleak. Based on this tweet and some other indications, rather than focus on keeping Trump in, we should start focusing on destroying the impostors. And breaking up big tech. There are certain indications that this is doable and the pushback will be massive (it's already starting), so I will keep contributing about this on this very thread until the Deep State unravels--or better, gets unraveled. I want to keep hope alive for OL readers to stay inspired that President Trump will be sworn in next week, but reality is what it is, not what I want it to be.

Praising them and the people as inherently admirable, irrespective of the morality of some scientists and big businessmen, their purpose, methods and their aims. Nor their involvement with Big Government? Wealth is good - therefore he who has amassed the most (e.g. Bill Gates) must be better than good. And so on, especially with Big Tech. As if on a quest - of which I'm certain - to find O'ist real life heroes (and there DO exist those, not always in obvious places, ofte

To imagine that he would propose to steal freedom, thus hold that that freedom is property that can be stolen or something like that, or is unaware that he is proposing that, is a misidentification. (I use the "identify correctly to evaluate correctly process for things like this.) When one looks at what he said from his perspective, from the way he thinks, what he is saying becomes clear. I resonate with his message, too. I

I think she would be perfectly happy if Trump cheated to win. I would not be happy. In fact, I would stop supporting President Trump in a heartbeat if that happened. As I exist with this moral sentiment and conscience, I am 100% certain millions and millions of people who support President Trump exist, also. Now for a catty dig. Ann would probably do better to not date Bill Maher (or other hardcore liberals) anymore, or at le

They orchestrated the destruction and revel in the idea it will last. They are even sticking their thumbs in the eyes of the prolls they rule , a lintelless column is basically a plinth without a statue , the statues replicated are the remnants of fallen cultures shown in their ruination and not in the original splendor. Nero dancing a jig. Fuck that guy.

If he didn't and this is just a rhetorical way of calming things down, it's best to keep our antennas up until Jan. 20. If he's out, I know I'm still with Trump. I refuse to live silently in a world where a blatant ripoff of that scale happens and there are no consequences. This is actually bigger than President Trump. Michael

You can see both tweets separately (Jack here and Marc Elias here), but you can't see them together anymore like you can in the screenshot below. And Marc Elias did. He literally paid for a peepee dossier... that was used in courts... even to get FISA warrants. Man, for a so-called powerhouse lawyer to block someone over this comment, it must have stung mightily.
