Want-----Mind wants to connect the DOTS

for a better and more complete understand.  With 6-8 hours a day spent studying, a heretofore unknown luxury, the DOTS are starting to connect. Very slowly,  but like a land slide or large movement of water, the momentum gains energy and speed.  I think I misspoke re Estulin comments and Trump being a globalist. His marketing and businesses have global reach.  In order to accomplish this he must associate with those globalist types.  Most likely besting them at their game and coming away with superior knowledge of their tactics

3 DOT boxes each leaked a little fluid this morning. The leaks puddled into something that then coalesced into a thought about censorship, free speech, jailable offenses and like topics.

Rappoport and Armstrong both commented on censorship with John focussing on the devious nature of censorship and AM noting how torture was used,  along with near 100% conviction rate in Old England and New America. He should know about both lamentable states, having been incarcerated and then nearly beaten  to death in jail.

  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as are restraints placed on speaking on any subject that others find offensive. To some, chains are an art form.  I'll comment on the blended puddled yield of the 3 boxes, referring to both MA and JR.

In a world where freedom is unknown, speaking out for free speech is hate speech, subjecting the person to arrest, trial and imprisonment with a 98% success rate of conviction. If a person pleads out after relentless torture their family loses everything (Olde English law).

Ayn Rand's book  Anthem, almost unknown today, was a novel where the word "I" was unknown. It was banned into non-existence where groupthink was enforced.  Independent thought was a crime, much like some of JR's novellas describe. Imagination was punishable by serious death or worse.

There was a time when the Constitution supposedly prevented this silly notion that torture was and is cruel and unusual punishment, supposedly prevented by the 8th Amendment.  Maybe there were a few minutes after the post-orgasmic signing of this noble document where the 8th Amendment meant something, but after 10 years of harsh war, the founding fathers might have harbored different sentiments about those who transgressed against them. 

When government wants your fuzzy butt in jail then Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's off to gaol you go.

Pot convictions are responsible for 46% of all incarcerations.  Now that's a racket.  Jail someone for exercising the First Amendment right to pursue life liberty and pursuit of happyness.  Riiiiight!  Happy Happy puff puff, then off with your head.

Is there a world where a man convicted and sentenced to death by firing squad  and is given the right of his last smoke  Give me some really good Maui Wowie. 

The Whisky Rebellion was the really real 'First Shot Heard  'Round the World.' Fuck with the gummint revenues and your Constitutional rights mean jack shit.

Fill for-profit prisons with people of color, convicted on most specious charges,  work them on the assembly line, keep them in cells 23 hours a day, turn them into sub humans, bartering for mackerel snacks and then wonder why we have 5 times the number of people in jail than any other country including the gulags of the former USSR (there I go, inflaming the passions again)  Heck of a racket.  

If a person pleads Not Guilty they are charged prosecuted,  and convicted after long harsh torture and their family loses everything. If the accused refuses to talk they are tortured to death but the family keeps their estate.  Australia just passed laws in which a person charged with a crime can have their assets seized along with the charge if they cannot prove the source of their cash or wealth.  Your wealth escheats to the state.  What a word.   S Cheat!

Seems like the good old times of King Whoever IV are coming back. Tied me bleedin' kangaroo  down mate, I'm Waltzing Matilda to the poor house.

If you plead, you are guilty. If you plead not guilty, you are guilty. Either way your estate is looted.

If you say nothing then you are killed but your estate is hopefully not looted. Many said nothing and saved their families.

What will  be seen as new criminal hate speech or crimes against those who are the new arbiters of 'free speech' ? Time will tell.

All speech is free speech but some is freer than other. 

If we say something about rigging markets,  could that rise to a level of hate speech against the bankers,  hedge fund financialists and transnationalists.  TFMR is nothing if not a bully pulpit for calling out market rigging. If it wasn't for those comments, TFMR would be half of its present space.  If this form of hate speech came to pass---eh ahhh. I just scared myself with that thought.

Would Trump consider speech against his monied interests go ahead and deem this as hate speech.

YOU BET YOUR ASS HE WOULD. 

His basic agreements with the social media platforms gave a pass to FaCIAbook and their ilk to go after their preferred targets, demonizing anyone guilty of heterodoxic speech in a world governed by fierce adherence to the orthodoxy of the new age priesthood class of the secular social media platforms.

Heretics will be burned at the anti free speech stake on a massive pyre of digital vanities and obsolete Kindles.

So, you don't like rigged elections.  Die, witch die!  Burn, you beastly heretic.  We will scourge the earth of you heretics who dare to call out how our elections are clean, pure and free from taint. 

Hey slick, 'taint so. If there's been one free and pure election in the US I am a monkey's uncle.  

Say anything about vaccines and you'll be excommunicated from the company of polite egg sucking malodorous pukes;   the company of strangers who wouldn't say SHIT if they had a mouthful.  Save me from the company of polite people.   I love being a bull in a china shop. Daily,  wifey tells me so.  Aside from detesting china as poncy, fussy effette eating ware, it's way too much fun to see how fragile crockery shatters, along with the egos who think china's the bees knees.

Seeing that I'm slipped off the trolley again, I'll leave with one comment.  The president of our bank made Art of War required reading.  My copy was dog eared and book marked with yellow highlights on the good parts.  The prose was deliciously good reading

on the psychology of election 2016.  REALLY WORTH RE-READING.  Because they were unique and not spoken the same way other places with some minor exceptions. Estulins' new book has resurrected the issue.

For some reason if I click on the post # to get the link for the post, it takes me to a different page than the post. 

So you have to scroll down the page.

Here's a bunch of others. Fix made a bunch.  I did and Ancient money.  I included a couple here and one comment by AM on Alex Jones since it happened to be on the same page.  That comment where he is essentially making a case for Gun control adds more credence to what we are seeing with Alex Jones is a deal.  No way to confirm but it's suspicious.

It's really ashame that these posts and there are many more by other people are buried in the archives without anyway to reference or recall them.  Even at the time people ignored or just fought.  And now based on recent comments here and other places, you can see they were either ignored or the wisdom not carried foward. 

I might have to make a point at going through some of the archives of TFMetals and preserving some of the really good posts.  There have been times discussions here have been better and more insightful than anything on twitter or elsewhere.  And there were times....NOT.

GL,Nice work on finding some

GL,

Nice work on finding some of the finest relevant past thoughts and excellent observation regarding the limitations of a discussion board with a thread this long.

Alex Jones’ case made our national public broadcaster (CBC) this morning. To be clear, it has a liberal bias.  I’ll summarize the article this way.  

1) The shut down of Jones is taken seriously as a matter of corporations exercising outrageous censorship...the medium is accepted as public , but is in fact private (like TFMR) and there has been no clear public explanation of what exactly was objectionable.   Clearly, not cool by the CBC.

2) Examination of the effects of the work of Jones (and by extension, extreme free speakers).  Jones spoke of conspiracy THEORIES.  But nut bars, let’s call them SJW’s who take it as FACT act out in real life and deal real life consequences to the victims.  Examples include parents from Sandy Hook who insist they lost a child.

End of CBC summary.

Since it is a theory, let’s consider that at least one of the several events might be real, or at least have had real consequences ( Las Vegas, Sandy Hook)....it is reprehensible that someone who suffered the loss of a child/sibling/etc should be told they are full of shit, further, doxed, issued death threats and find it necessary to move out of their homes..   Ideally of course, those responsible are individually held responsible, but that’s not what really happens. 

So, what do we do with that?   As AGXIIK wants to wear a MAGA hat and not be harassed, so one should expect that following a tragedy one should be allowed peace and not be harassed by some group who is convinced otherwise. 

If we can’t deal with the idiots who get pumped up by Jones, and he doesn’t do his own disclaimers with any effect then is the only alternative to shut him down?   I dunno, but I would bet that the harassment of Sandy Hook parents would not reach this level if such speeches were denied, or at least moderated.  I know this is not a very Libertarian suggestion but we are not living the Libertarian dream here either.

Call it a hunch…

The Q narrative is going mainstream, with the Government bought and paid for press outlets bashing away.

I've always considered Alex Jones controlled opposition, and with certainty since Trump announced his candidacy.

I realized why I couldn't corroborate any of the anti-Q hysteria, but could easily confirm much of what Q posts.

The main stream News outlets (CIA) want us to believe in Q & Alex.

Destroying the credibility of the mainstream news outlets appears to be part of a well orchestrated plan to get as many people as possible to believe an alternative narrative.

Only hard-core communists agree with the mainstream news outlets now, and you really don't have to convince them of  anything.

Besides, they are too stupid and self hating for the elite to consider them relevant.

My long standing basic premise that Trump represents false hope, to keep people from  actually doing anything, and just "trust the plan”, is probably paying off spectacularly, while a global police state moves to lock down humanity.

Making Alex Jones into a martyr, is part of this plan.

Not just here in United States, but globally, Donald Trump is being propped up as the savior of humanity.

And yet, the war against humanity proceeds unabated.

Most of what people are crediting Donald Trump with, is either a fantasy, like our magical economic turn around, or inconsequential, like pardoning a few patriots here and there, to make his base think he actually cares about them.

In the meantime, the environmental damage directly attributable to government, such as the growing wildfires across the planet, the unprecedented collapse of our ecosystem, the impending demise of our financial system, and the complete collapse of anything that resembles  objective morality defined simply as "do not harm others" is clearly accelerating.

Sure, we can say that people are "waking up in mass”, but they're being fed an epic amount of false narratives.

From "the earth is flat", to "Donald Trump is going to drain the swamp someday", the bull shit just keeps getting thicker.

Alex Jones has been nothing more than a Trump commercial since 2015. Now people who have never even heard of him are looking him up.

Exactly the same with Q.

I don't like where this is headed.

Human beings intuitively like to support just causes. Unfortunately, they all too often seem to think they have only two choices.

By making one choice aggressively malevolent, we are being herded like sheep into the only other apparent choice.

I say, fuck them all.

Government will NEVER be the solution to our problems, and it's all anyone can talk about lately.

I don't trust any of them.

The Q followers are anxiously awaiting mass arrests.

In this land of lawlessness, Patriots may be the first to go.

I consider this more likely right now, then ever draining the Swamp.

Could I be wrong?

Possibly, but it sure does look like a set up to me. cheeky

I can't figure out why KSA went nuclear on a tweet from a pip squeak foreign minister. Does not make sense to me.

I think it is cover for something else, but not sure what it is 

Now I will go back to the regularly scheduled programing and not question  wink

"Welcome to the World of

"Welcome to the World of Smoke and Mirrors" 

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Now for an imagination exercise.  

Can you imagine, that there are a group of men, so powerful, yet unseen, that could manage to control millions of people, control the outcome of elections through advanced understanding of the brain?   And that we are in a simulation.  That all the news, all the drama is meant to divert our attention away from the unseen string pullers and to the bigger game unraveling in the world?   

Is that really hard to imagine that some smart yet devious people are yanking all of our chains?  And essentially nobody knows what's really going on?  

I'm both excited and bit nervous to read what's in these pages.  Another disinformation agent?  An honest whistle blower?  

Who has the courage to join me in this journey? 

What if I learn that America was hoodwinked and you know that choice.... The so called we didn't have a choice, choice? .  That perceived choice of good vs evil, never really existed except in your mind, because both choices represented unseen realities that people wouldn't, couldn't imagine?   

false dilemma is a type of informal fallacy in which something is falsely claimed to be an "either/or" situation, when in fact there is at least one additional option. A false dilemma can arise intentionally, when a fallacy is used in an attempt to force a choice or outcome.

Is that where we are?  

Or did the majority of voting American's get it right and we are watching a mass awakening of skill, reason, objectivity?   You know the wisdom of the crowd and all that jazz.   

On impulse alone, which option are you leaning toward?

Is it ok for me to reply that this is a complicated issue?  I am not familiar with what Alex Jones suggested and the case he made other than from superficial reports.   

It looks like a jury hasn't decided if he is guilty.....

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/31/us/politics/alex-jones-defamation-suit-sandy-hook.html

Probably take me ten minutes to find a bunch of video's with hate speech that harms people.  Actually, just watched one yesterday over a very intense racial issue between blacks and Asians that just happened in New York City.  TERRIBLE.  Like the 60's all over again.   

So the issue becomes do you go after everybody?  Or just the guy with the biggest microphone?  

This is an issue I'd have to carefully contemplate.

That's an intriguing offer.

Listening to Estulin and the Bilderbergs.  That is a name used to describe the unseen string pullers. There are other names. 

It occurred to me that you pose a second False Dilemma in that instead of the false dilemma that is described in it's own right, it's  now a nugget within new false dilemma that requires a new choice: That we voters got it right and we're watching a mass awakening with skills, reason and objectivity.  What did we get right? How so?

Electing Trump or not electing Sanders or Clinton?   Half the voters would say we got it wrong and we're just as delusional as we've always been, the deplorables and other sorts that populate Walmart and the fly over states.  

I am of the opinion that we are experiencing a nascent awakening that's riddled with confusion and conflicting messages, like a child learning to talk, moving from gibberish to formed sentences that can be deciphered but still childish in their contents and context. We know we're being lied to by the mommy and daddy gods but we've yet to find out the greater truths.  Those are just beyond our grasp but we know they are there. 

As you noted, is Estulin a disinfo agent or honest whistle blower?  I suspect the latter is true. 

In his 47 minute podcast regarding the Bilderberg Movie, he gets down to a granular level, pursuing many topics that are being wrapped up in the last 10 minutes, where he supports Trump's actions, both part of us and not part of us, promoting his movie, what do the Bilderbergs fear. They fear global collapse and their inability to prevent this collapse. There is a great unknown as to how the system will fail, when it fails and the outcome.  It appears to be out of their control, or ours for that matter.  A heightened awareness of the outcome and how to deal with it will be a highly valued skill.

As I listen more to his dialogue on the Bilderbergs, knowing a bit about them at least inferentially because they represent a certain ideology, short lived as it's been.  They are certainly part of the cabal of string pullers and puppeteers. Puppeteers are the term used by James Gibson in his book West to East.  There is a small group, maybe 8,000 total, who are the top echelon of the globalists. This was identified by Ronald Bernard, the banker who confessed as to his part in the banking cabal that basically rules the financial world, headed by the Puppeteers.  He said he exited before he was forced to harm children in order become fully initiated into the secret rites of the uppermost pier.

CRF, Trilateralists, corporatists, Illuminati, Masonics and the like are just below this top group. The top group maintains some of their people within these groups but they are also separate from the second tier.  These are the generals and admirals of this division sized group. But they report to the top people, ones without names.  What I've read is these people have been running the show for thousands of years.  The top tier have been perfecting their systems of mind control for at least 4,000 years. One thing I am not certain of is whether the global collapse is being orchestrated by the Puppeteers or if they know it's coming and like any good crisis, they won't let it go to waste.

It's a play book as old as time but it is just a play book. Knowing this allows people to write their own new play book, bringing into being a new Enlightenment. 

Like Mr Fix said that other day, I paraphrase.

If we humans were able to shuffle off this paradigm of archaic thinking, where the false dilemmas are part and parcel of this manufactured thinking, leading us down two paths that are, in reality, only one path, one that's been laid out  for centuries,we would be able to advance our technology more in one generation or decade than in the entire history of humanity. We'd also be able to advance general awareness by 2-3 orders of magnitude. There is very little time to get up to speed however

The real problem is that of the Cliff.  Sign up for this today or the offer will be withdrawn or cost 5 times as much tomorrow. That's what is being offered so commonly in the awakening.  False dilemmas about in this awakening.  Behind one door is a lady. Behind another is the tiger.

In other words, we need to sign up for this new way of thinking or we will be left with the old way of thinking. If we don't sign up today the cost will be 5 times more expensive tomorrow.  

That makes me want to step back and examine this false dilemma. 

The old way of thinking does not work.

The new way of thinking must be adopted right now. 

Two choices. 

There's a third way.

I take on the process of discovery under my own guidance and approach, working closely with a few others who are also motivated to seek a new path.

SB that Antony Sutton is one

SB that Antony Sutton is one interesting guy.  

From the wiki page, not that video which was about Hitler/Germany

“In a few words: there is no such thing as Soviet technology. Almost all — perhaps 90–95 percent — came directly or indirectly from the United States and its allies. In effect the United States and the NATO countries have built the Soviet Union. Its industrial and its military capabilities. This massive construction job has taken 50 years. Since the Revolution in 1917. It has been carried out through trade and the sale of plants, equipment and technical assistance”

Also nice to see a time when a conspiracy case is made without all the gimmicks, drama, over-the-top blowharding etc.

"The damn monkeys are

"The damn monkeys are manipulating the markets"

"I'll never be made whole again.  Gold doesn't go up until they loose control"  

You've read these sentiments before or similar?  

But where does this manipulation begin?  And where does it end?  

Does it begin when they turn their high speed computers and get their algo's running to dump just when you thought everything is ok? 

Or is the manipulation the memes that feed into your heads whispering, enter the market now!!  You're gonna be rich beyond your wildest dreams!!!  This is your last chance!  

They've mastered the human brain?  They've mastered the art of high volume dumping? 

So for this election, day after day, you here, "THE PEOPLE WON!""  OUr voices have been heard.  Was it your voice?  This is the people's revolution!!#$%? 

Because voters don't decide who wins and who loses. The elite decide and then they make you believe that your vote makes a difference.

Trump is not a person but a project of one part of the global elite. Forget about past elections. This is different.

Powers  control the Oval Office outside of the control of the White House 

    Daniel Estulin

Now, I've heard this other story.  That no matter how much they manipulate the markets, the markets will reach equilibrium.   That means if a stock is meant to tank, it will eventually tank?   If a stock is meant to reach a top, it will reach a top?  No manner of praying, cheerleading, getting your friends to go along will ascert your will.  

So if they manipulate markets, by anticipating your behavior through helping you decide your own behavior, in markets and elections, that means there are different roads to reach the destination.   It's a big game of chess and they are always 5 moves ahead of you, and can easily anticipate changes of sentiment which they worked out before you decided to change you mind.  All this works until.........

Their goal is to always be one step ahead of you.  And they will always be one step ahead of the majority of human beings.  BUT, eventually there is a payday.  All the imbalances of the system must get washed out.   

The pendulum swings to the left, and then they move you, and the pendulum swings to the right. 

THINGS FALL APART PT 1. 

One of the big points of Epsilon Theory is to call things by their proper names, to speak clearly about what IS. And what America IS today is a two-party political system with high-peaked bimodal electorate preferences. So long as that is the case, we will be whipsawed between extremist candidates of the Right and the Left. Our choices for president in 2020 will be The Mule and Madame Defarge. Enjoy.

I say “enjoy” because I can’t help but use snark in my despair. But the truth is … and again, this is what a bimodal electorate preference distribution means … a significant majority of Americans will enjoy very much, thank you, a choice between The Mule and Madame Defarge. Or as all the pundits will say on TV, “the base sure is excited”, and that will be true for both Democrats and Republicans.

So why do I despair? Primarily because I think that the policy agendas on both extremist sides are an absolute dumpster fire, and that lurching from stem to stern on fiscal policy and social policy and national defense is a really crappy way to run a country. All I can hope for is gridlock.

But secondarily I despair because, as much as a significant majority of Americans will want and will enjoy a contest of extremists in 2020, an even larger majority of Americans will be very unhappy with whoever wins. A bimodal electorate preference distribution doesn’t just go away on its own. It doesn’t just get better over time. It is a widening gyre. It gets worse over time, as more and more extremist candidates, full of passionate intensity, strut and fret their hour upon the stage. That’s a mixed poetic metaphor, but you get my point. The widening gyre, as Yeats put it so perfectly, is a period of mere anarchy, not special or momentous anarchy. It is a tale told by, if not idiots, then ridiculous people, full of sound and fury and ultimately accomplishing nothing.

Has all this happened before? Sure. Time to dust off your copy of Gibbon’s Decline and Fall. Time to reread Will and Ariel Durant. Just be forewarned, the widening gyre can go on for a loooong time, particularly in the case of a major empire like Rome or America. It took the Romans about four centuries to officially exhaust themselves, at least in the West, with a few headfakes of resurgence along the way. Four centuries of mostly ridiculousness. Four centuries of profitable revenge and costly gratitude. Four centuries of a competitive equilibrium in a competitive game.

http://www.epsilontheory.com/things-fall-apart-pt-1/

Given all of this, I've chosen a t-shirt that truly reflects my political leanings. 

This is a party that never let's you down.  Because it is the party that is always in charge.  It tells you things move to the left, they move to the right.  Nature is the final arbitor of reality.

The great Chinese writer William Shakespeare understood well. 

There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

In other words, you don't decide.  You only think you do.  The universe times revolutions. Not men.  It only wakes you up to the fact and ensures you are in the right position at the right time to assist in it's job. 

All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.  Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lined, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slippered pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side; His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

So we need to change our definition of enlighten.   We are the enlightened ones because we voted for trump. That's like saying that the water that overflowed outside the kettle was enlightened because the fire was too hot.   They were just acting according to the universal order.  They didn't know what they were doing.   

The waking up will probably not look like a mass amount of the population finding reason. Accessing higher wisdom and applying it to affairs of the state, or their finances.  It will simply be the molecules of water realizing that the shit is too hot, and we have to make a move because things aren't working out in this pot.  

I support mother nature.  And that's even higher than libertarianism, anarchism, democrat, republican, because it includes ALL of them and knows how to use them to it's end.  As long as your cheering for mother nature, you'll NEVER be wrong.

Happy Birthday Mr. President

An email came to the inbox, asking me to send POTUS 42 a birthday well wish.  I wished him well because, God knows, he looks like hell.  The missive requested a donation.   I sent $1,000,000 in Bitcoin Bolivars, postage due.   

As for the center not holding, reading Hunt's Epsilon post this am, this was increasingly clear several years ago.  I voted to opt out of the traditional political party structure back then and formed a new party

ACT.B    

Anarcho-Curmudgeon Toryite...Bastard Class*

At last count we have 8 members.  I forgot who they are but kept a list somewhere in my office but we actively seek new members.

There's no founding charter, dues, mailing lists, candidates running for office, regular meetings or advertising circulars.

We have 2 planks,  2 favorite drugs,  2 heroes and 2 sports

Planks

1. Level every goobermunt office

2. Salt the  bare earth with  a cocktail of Cesium 134, Berkelium 247 and Moron 17 so nothing grows on that ground ever.

Drugs

1.  Ambien

2.  Fuckitall 80 proof

Heroes

Guy Fawkes

Genghis Khan

Sports

1.  China smash marathon

2. 400 yard relay silver grab

*As founder of ACT I gave myself the highest classification, preferring to be addressed as Your Right Honorable AGXIIK

Now how much does it cost to run a full page Ad in the NY Times?   150,000 grand? 

Washington Post     13 grand

30 second ad spot on major tv network?   Guess it depends on the show.  Average $120 grand?  $130 Grand?  Way more depending on show and time?  

How much would it cost to do an advertisement on every news show run in the United States, local and national, and every newspaper, and have your name sprinkled everywhere on the internet?  
 

How many millions upon millions of dollars of free publicity has Alex Jones gotten in the last two days?   

You think he is angry or ecstatic at the free publicity? 

Every Joe Six Pack.  Every Grandma Gertie who never heard of the guy is NOW in their heads.   

Hey who is this Alex Jones?  

So let me rephrase AM's choices..... Deal or suicide?   

The most unpersuasive, ignorant move you can make and totally gain the opposite effect of what you are achieve or the best persuasion EVER by corporate America?

Couple comments

I've been trying to tell this board for years and yes you too mr fix. That there are two very powerful global Jewish cabals at odds with one another. Actually there are three but the third one less influential and it's primarily domestic. Trump is not aligned with any of them. Probably the onky real friend he has is Carl Icahn and it was Icahn that swung support behind him. 

Alex jones was a never trumper. He likely changed like mark levin did due to Icahns influence.

Cont...

there was a real Q. He came to 4 chan. He gave us high Intel and it attracted the attention of the CIA, journalists and curiosity seekers. Then he disappeared and hasn't been seen since. We knew this new q wasn't real because q had his own room that only he had the key code for. He would open it when he was online so we would know it was him. No one has been able to break that code for that room. Not one single time. This q can't. We got to know q but this one is just stealing info from full chan and repeating it. 

We outted him immediately cuz the real Q was very religious. Plus he knew we fled the chans for good when moot sold it and it was moderated. Along with the infiltration by just about everyone. We hid on the dark web in the back of one of the most perverted sites that mostly turned back just the curious. We have since left there and only use the chans to drop memes and disinfo. We are fighting a propaganda war. We are not the people on the streets causing violence. Spencer and the rest are not us. We get blamed for it but it's not us. Yes we made a fool of Shia labouf whatever his name is. Yes we tinkered with French elections. Yes we did Rick rolling and many others. But we never once went out in the open. 

The banning of Alex jones is a gov't op. It's the perfect excuse to regulate Silicon Valley as a utility. They fell right into the trap. A few caught on but it's too late. They banned too many people. So now Google has to deal with it dumb asses. 

Im no fan of Alex jones. I do like a younger guy John Paul Watson on his channel cuz he's funny as hell even when I don't agree with him. He usually starts out with fuck you George clooney or fuck you Beyoncé and he amuses me with his British take on American pop culture. 

Trump is going it alone but he has a bunch of the third Jewish faction behind him. It's the never trumpers that are causing havoc in the streets. Trump has mercer, Ichan, adelson backing him ...outcasts from the two larger cabals. 

Edit: we haven't seen or heard from the real Q in many years. He's either dead, fired or retired. He felt morally obliged to divulge Obamas plan years before others figured it out. Obama is a commie plain and simple. His plan was to make the usa bankrupt. He would pay global reparations via usa debt. He wanted our military gutted. We survived only cuz of the rep congress. You have no idea how close he came to making that happen. He couldn't pull off his commie ideals even with the dems so he went full tilt fascist and took control of health care, banks, auto industry and others - if that's not fascism I don't know what is.

this site is in danger. All of them are. I tried to warn you about FOSTA. That makes the site owner liable for every word said on a site by anyone. This is how they silenced Europe. 

I know Y'all think voting isn't important. The left is losing the black vote. Why do you think they want open borders? They are doing the same thing FDR did to get blacks to switch to the party of the Dixiecrats and KKK in the 30s. The DNC has lost 20% of the black vote in 2 years. They will replace them with the Hispanics. So keep thinking voting isn't important cuz they know what you refuse to believe and they are counting on it.

apple had one foot in when they were tipped off. Trump said nothing for days .....,imagine that - nothing. 

I'm constantly getting banned from Twitter but lookie what was in my mail after I had been told I violated TOS multiple times 

Twitter

Hello,

Your account is now unlocked, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience.
 
Twitter has automated systems that find and remove automated spam accounts and it looks like your account got caught up in one of these spam groups by mistake. This sometimes happens when an account exhibits automated behavior in violation of the Twitter Rules (https://twitter.com/rules).

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. Please do not respond to this email as replies will not be monitored.

Thanks,

Twitter Support

i was trolling as usual. I'm up to 30 bans at least .... Then suddenly I get this from last account.  He cast his web and they all went for it .... This unbanning is just the defense they will use to try not to be regulated

I might joke about political parties and such Ruffian

Rest assured, when elections hang by a handful of votes, even as  few as 100-200 as is the case in Ohio, when a candidate that stands for something that is meaningful to me and people like me, not voting is like casting a vote for the opposition.

Right now there are serious and potentially violent actions headed our way in this long hot summer filled with smoke and fire and mal-energies that are directed towards good people. 

I know it's easy to try to split the middle and still hope there is something left when the smoke actually clears, but as I read from dozens of sources, there are movements afoot lead by people who do not want peace or to be left alone. Being able to vote might be the least of our worries, given that there are some strong movements to make voting seem like an exercise in futility.

I just took a new annual membership at a local gun club with a decent indoor range.  10 bays allow pistol,  rifle and shot gun (OO or OOO buck only)  With the smoke thick from CA fires wafting over Reno way, visibility 1/2 mile to 6 miles, being inside with A/C is great. It's that or 105  at the outdoor range. I'm too old for that shit.

In the course of 90 minutes I discovered 3 things.

1  My Glock 19 shoots just fine at 10-20 feet with a decent grouping. I'm embarrassingly rusty but practice will work.

2. My personal carry Charter Arms Bulldog 44 Special is NOT a good carry.  Maybe as a backup. Short sight radius makes 10 foot groupings difficult. Double action is better but still not a good pattern.  The cylinder heats up so fast that after 10 rounds the shell extractions are FUBAR, requiring a knife to dig out one casing per 5.  Speed loading is not an option.

3. My SBR had a type 5  malfunction*, meaning the barrel shroud and retainer rings went TU, rendering the SBR unusable.  Fortunately the range master has a first rate gunsmith on staff so the fix is in.  Good thing I found out the problem at the range and not somewhere else.

*Type 5 malfunction    Firearm self destructs on a distant range, forcing the shooter to hit Speed Dial for his personal concierge gun smith to HALO in with all necessary tools and parts for a quick fix. 

This service is available at NRA.0rg for a small price.wink
