NTSB released a statement today. First, it's going to take two years to decide what really happened. By then, you'll have forgotten all about it. Second, they say the train was travelling at 78, and that the engineer was not texting or using any handheld devices. Sounds like they are clearing him? The engineer also called in a few seconds/minutes before the accident to report excess speed.
Here's the thing: I'm with everybody that it doesn't look right, but I read at least four or 5 testimonies by passengers that the train was moving at excessive speeds and the train was tilting.
The thing about the Las Vegas shooting is that we had video. We saw multiple flashing lights. We had eyewitness's including one now dead one, after the fact, that said there was more than one shooter. We have video's of helicopters, we have videos' with audio including independent analysis of the shooting.
Here we have NOT one witness or passenger coming out and saying, WOW, it was moving slow. NOT one. I havent' been able to find one. That forces me to reserve final judgement and see if I can find somebody that can explain how a 65 ton train slid down and embankment at 78 mph without getting crushed and how only 3 people died.
NOt one person on the highway who saw it, or passenger saying, it's a lie. What do you make of that?
Less stress, more exercise, moderate alcohol, respect for nature, more plant based food, eat until 80% full, bingo - longer life.
Probably lot's of sex and some drugs too!
I'm going to take this rare moment to commend the US Government on it's charitable nature during this holiday season. What more can you ask for?
On behalf of Green Lantern, and the Ukrainian People, we'd like to thank DT and the US government for their gift of sniper guns and missles in the name of the defense of US interests in the Ukraine. What those interests are? Nobody says.... But it definitely is interesting.
is the main factor though.
We are conditioned to believe that life is a standard format but nothing could be further from the truth.
Our lives are beautifully unique.
We all posses a unique signature.
No person is better than the next.
We are all positioned to win or lose.
The loser is just as important as the winner.
Without a loser you cannot have a winner.
Consider the possibility that they were all actors.
Were any death certificates issued? There weren't any in Las Vegas.
Are there any funerals planned? There weren't any in Las Vegas.
After the wreck, everyone got on a matching set of charter buses, and rode off into the sunset, not to be seen until their next show.
Their biggest blunder was trying to pass off a slow motion train wreck as a high-speed cataclysm.
I am not buying any of it.
Your essay on dealing with those parasitical psychopaths in goofy costumes brandishing guns was excellent.
I treat them like the junkyard dogs that they are. I used to spend a lot of time in junkyards.
I really enjoyed your commentary on essential oils too. Got to get me some.
Gold, frankincense, and mur, sounds like it could be quite a cocktail.
Who am I to argue with three wise men?

GL, great list for the centurions. Those folks have understanding of health fsr beyond what is taught and understood here in the west's consumer oriented society.
I fully agree with the need for 'purpose' in life as a reason for longevity, but to reach that you do need all of those other factors. #4 is one I have practiced since my earliest childhood because I hated that bloated feeling that so many believe they need to attain in belief that they have eaten a good meal. I have however counted calories because I have never had a need to, I have been trim all of my life.
I had a term 'the maximum consumer' I used for decades to describe those who need more of everything and need the newest and best now.
I was brought up near enough the ocean which I love dearly (Scorpio with Sun, Mercury, Venus and Rising all in Scorpio so I am all wet) to sped lots of time there and in the water, but as things became more crowded I left for another large body of water in the snow covered Sierras which offered a smaller town and I believe a higher quality of uncrowded life.
My purpose in life amongst others is to properly maintain my 'temple' in both mind and spirit, and body in as balanced a manner as I can to continue to share good spirit with family, friends and those I share life with.
Stress comes in many forms and attacks us all. Much of stress is self manufactured and the balance is generated by our environment. It is our job to mitigate stress so as to not have it affect our health through diet, exercise and balanced state of mind. That can be done whether we are in the city where some thrive or the country where stress simulations are much reduced but it is necessary.
Not sure where I wanted to go with this, need more coffee.
Merry Christmas all.
Why kids love 'fascist' cartoons like 'Paw Patrol' and 'Thomas'
"We want our children to inhabit a world in which identities are both mutable and equal, and imagination and empathy reign supreme!
But young children, as dictated by their tastes in popular culture, have something else in mind. They're drawn to worlds in which identities are fixed, order trumps imagination and transgressions are met with routine punishment.
Two of the most divisive shows are "Thomas the Tank Engine" and "Paw Patrol," both of which have been eviscerated by grown-ups on discussion boards, in social media and in widely shared essays in prestigious publications.
disturbed by the notion of our children tuning in for a regular dose of primary-colored authoritarianism. What ever happened to "Free to Be ... You and Me?"
Authoritarian cartoons are priming the youth for #BoxCarNationalism.
"Here's an idea, gratis, for the creative team behind of "Paw Patrol" and "Thomas," should they want to broaden their appeal to parents without alienating their fan base: Ryder and Sir Topham Hatt retire and are replaced by their equally domineering sisters. This, in turn, boosts the social status of all the non-male characters. Children would still get the satisfaction of immersing themselves in an orderly universe where rules are rules, and everyone is in his or her place. Just without the white guy on top."

One last thing ... skimming the posts there seems to be a misconception ... antifa are Anarchists. there are commies (called 'tankies') who will 'blackbloc' with antifa on occasion ... but by and large the aggressive, nihilistic untermensch in the streets trying to impose their daddy issues on all of society ... that's Anarchists.
but by and large the aggressive, nihilistic untermensch in the streets trying to impose their daddy issues on all of society ... that's Anarchists.
If that element, for lack of a better term, defines "Anarchists," then we are truly close to the end.
In his latest interview, for the first hour, it's mostly geopolitical. The last half hour, is the down and dirty reality of how our government is trying to kill you.
Almost all of these topics have been discussed here at one point or another, but the main reason I've been following Jim Willie for all these years, is that he incorporates reality into his economic models.
Yeah, reality. What a concept. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-rCfVDN9FU
We did not pick our parents, their religion, our nation to live within nor the color of our skin. We just awakened one day, about six years old, and thought our lives were just like the rest of the world. Our views,our understandings, our educations, our employment, the good and the bad, became a pile of rocks upon our backs. Where is the Truth?
We have yoked up with many heavy concepts and they are difficult to shake. Great peace may come to he who is able to empty his man made bag of stones, seeking the Truth, finding it and never filling his bag with anything else, forever. Jim

The parasite is not so much trying to kill you as farm you.
They will always seek a balance between exploitation and death.

I did try emailing B.O.G the last time we discussed her, and I never heard back from her. She always emailed me back, but not this time. I fear you are correct and it was very nice of you to remember her at this time of year. Thank you.

WARNING THAT TRUMP WILL BE "TAKEN OUT" OVER NEW YEARS BECAUSE OF SWAMP KILLING EXECUTIVE ORDER IS PROBABLY LEGIT
Here's the deal. Eric Schmidt of Google resigned from Google after Trump signed an executive order giving him full power to seize all assets, property, and money of anyone involved in child molestation and human trafficking. It also allowed him to go after Hillary for Uranium One while it prevents foreigners from helping, because if they do, their American assets will be seized.
This is exactly what we needed, but there is concern that the swamp within the white house will kill him very quickly now. None of the MSM outlets have been honest about this and I ended up hearing about it from a friend I got ahold of to get instructions for making turkey stuffing for Christmas. Anyway, it checks out. The executive order is legit. Here it is.
Ok, it is complex, so let me point out the key items.
The executive order is presented as a national emergency up front, right in the beginning.
At first it reads like he's going after foreigners which are named directly in an annex at the end. That's not what this is. The first part of the order only cements the second part of the order, to prevent American criminals from running away to foreign countries and being supported by foreigners. To sum this up:
No swamp critter can accept help from another swamp critter in getting away, Hillary's selling of American uranium is covered without mentioning Hillary or uranium, Child traffickers and other human rights abuses are covered, the stealing of and misuse of government funds is covered, all items are covered for foreigners and U.S. citizens, any foreigners who have assets in the U.S. that have done anything against the U.S. for the purpose of supporting the American swamp will have those assets seized, anyone in violation of anything in this executive order will have their assets seized, and to put it bluntly THEY ARE TOAST.
This will eat:
Anyone who helped or worked for Hillary (foreign and domestic) Anyone who helped and worked for George Soros, (foreign and domestic) Anyone involved in any pedophilia, human trafficking or anything else of the sort, it is a full on bust and it is tied in from every corner so nothing can leak out no matter where it is in the world.
More importantly, it says that anyone this targets will not be told a thing except for the foreigners specifically named in the annex at the end, all the rest are simply going to be pounced on, straight out of the blue.
This executive order is what Americans asked Trump to do on day one, he's doing it, and because of this, many are predicting he will not survive for even two weeks after issuing this.
Here's the part that busts the American swamp:
(iii) any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:
(A) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of:
(1) any activity described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section that is conducted by a foreign person;
(2) any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or
(3) any entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section, where the activity is conducted by a foreign person;
(B) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or
(C) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (iii)(A) or (B) of this section
(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted before the effective date of this order.
Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and the entry of such persons into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is hereby suspended. Such persons shall be treated as persons covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions).
Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the types of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.
Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 include:
(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and
(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.
Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:
(a) the term "person" means an individual or entity;
(b) the term "entity" means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and
(c) the term "United States person" means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.
Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to this order.
This executive order is not for easy reading leftists, it is difficult to put together but when you do put it together, it is THE NUKE.
Right?....there is a lot of nonsense out there...how in the heck do you decipher?
Merry Christmas guys and gals....the thoughts exchanged here are quite extraordinary...Best to all in the coming year and may 2018 be revealing and rewarding...and for Bog
The trump exec order on property was issued under the global magnitiski act a ND a previos6human rights act that targeted russia. 52 people have been named and I Dont recall any domestic politicians but do recall russian, burmese, pakistan, and I believe one chinese official has been named. It looks like an attempt to seize foreign assetts, terrorist related and Russia not too happy about. Can't post links but all the information is on Internet and not top secret.
The conversation we had about Scott Adams post about Comey hurting Clinton and subsequent remarks by Ruffian and Am about taking dow corrupt us officials or not still seems to be on the table. There would be consequences and civil war. I am not saying that won't happen on some level but I've read no evidence that this ex3c order is targeting Clinton or Obama. I think that is a bit if protection by alt right and I don't see trump alt right journalists suggesting that's what happened only a small contigent of the conspiracy press. If that changes we will all know it
I obviously have no idea where this may lead, but we have stories about 4000+ sealed indictments sitting and waiting for the right time. This story helps provide a reason for all of those indictments and vice versa. Whether they are for illegal alien deportations or Podesta email/pizza gate arrests is unknown but they are there. I will just patiently wait and see as my crystal ball is clouded. I will just welcome any clean-up of the corruption and fraud that has been going on for longer than any of us have been alive.
Between the executive order and the Eric Schmidt resignation something is up and I believe it will be big. Only time will tell and I do hope Donald has his six covered as they have been attempting to take him out of the DC picture where he is hated by all for some time now. They keep throwing mud at Donald and nothing really sticks, they are running out of alternatives and the swamp gas is getting worse all of the time.
Soros, globalist---fill in your personal description, donated $18 billion of his fortune, estimated at $35-40 billion, to his Open Society Foundation. $18 billion in an NGO can create serious mayhem. I imagine this donation did not escape the attention of Trump and Sessions.
If there was a global troublemaker worse than Soros (yes, the US fits that bill) Georgi fits the bill for now.
MBS is hanging his Saudi relatives by their feet, shaking down large parts of their personal fortune for early release. Alaweed coughed up $6 billion, 1/3 of his personal fortune to be lowered from the ceiling.
It stands to reason this EO 'could' target Soros's foundation given that it's equally likely that Trump and MBS's meeting earlier this year included discussions about the bad actors they both wanted to remove. I have no love for the Saudis and am agnostic on Trump, but their power plays and machinations above and below the surface are Borgias-like in their entertainment value and possible affect on the political world that's been running the show for decades.
IMO we're seeing history in the making and of a sort not seen for decades, maybe even centuries.

I'd agree that this was designed to foil some domestic involvement.it require somebody to look at those names and connect them to players in USA.
To date, Trump has used no force against big players. IT'S all been Machiavellian style tricks and his opponents have stepped in all the traps. FBI Is as high as it gets. If he is going to take down big players that mean something, it has to be done before you even suspect something. It seems to me Clinton are already checkmated. Clinton and Obama just thorns. Taking down their handlers would be fun to watch but the collective has almost completely ignored foreign policy and the ramifications of it and the players behind it. And that's no small potatoes eith er r
