Exclusive from Gen. Flynn: If We Don't Act, 2% of the People Are About To Control the Other 98% by Michael Flynn

I was once told if we’re not careful, 2 percent of the passionate will control 98 percent of the indifferent 100 percent of the time.

The more I’ve thought about this phrase, the more I believe it. There is now a small group of passionate people working hard to destroy our American way of life. Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law and those law enforcement professionals who uphold our laws are under the gun more than at any time in our nation’s history. These passionate 2 percent appear to be winning.

Despite there being countless good people trying to come to grips with everything else on their plates, our silent majority (the indifferent) can no longer be silent.

If the United States wants to survive the onslaught of socialism, if we are to continue to enjoy self-government and the liberty of our hard-fought freedoms, we have to understand there are two opposing forces: One is the “children of light” and the other is the “children of darkness.”

As I recently wrote, the art and exercise of self-governance require active participation by every American. I wasn’t kidding! And voting is only part of that active participation. Time and again, the silent majority have been overwhelmed by the “audacity and resolve” of small, well-organized, passionate groups. It’s now time for us, the silent majority (the indifferent), to demonstrate both.

The trials of our current times, like warfare, are immense and consequences severe and these seem inconquerable.

As a policewoman from Virginia told me, “People don’t feel safe in their homes and our police force is so demoralized we cannot function as we should. In my 23 years with my department, I have never seen morale so low.”

Another woman from Mississippi told me that we need our leaders to “drop a forceful hammer. People are losing patience. It simply must be stopped! Laws MUST be enforced … no one is above the law.”

Don’t fret. Through smart, positive actions of resolute citizen-patriots, we can prevail. Always keep in mind that our enemy (these dark forces) invariably have difficulties of which we are ignorant.

For most Americans, these forces appear to be strong. I sense they are desperate. I also sense that only a slight push on our part is all that is required to defeat these forces. How should that push come?

Prayers help and prayers matter, but action is also a remedy. Our law enforcement professionals, from the dispatcher to the detective and from the cop to the commissioner, are a line of defense against the corrupt and the criminal. It is how we remain (for now) in a state of relatively peaceful existence.

We must support them with all our being. They are not the enemy; they bring light to the darkness of night through their bravery and determination to do their jobs without fanfare and with tremendous sacrifice.

The silent majority (the indifferent) tend to go the way of those leading them. We are not map- or mind-readers; we are humans fraught with all the hopes and fears that flesh is heir to. We must not become lost in this battle. We must resoundingly follow our God-given common sense.

Seek the truth, fight for it in everything that is displayed before you. Don’t trust the fake news or false prophets; trust your instincts and your common sense. Those with a conscience know the difference between right and wrong, and those with courage will always choose the harder right over the easier wrong.

I believe the attacks being presented to us today are part of a well-orchestrated and well-funded effort that uses racism as its sword to aggravate our battlefield dispositions. This weapon is used to leverage and legitimize violence and crime, not to seek or serve the truth.

The dark forces’ weapons formed against us serve one purpose: to promote radical social change through power and control. Socialism and the creation of a socialist society are their ultimate goals.

They are also intent on driving God out of our families, our schools and our courts. They are even seeking the very removal of God from our churches, essentially hoping to remove God from our everyday lives.

Remember, we will only remain united as “one nation under God.”

And yes, there is a “resistance movement” by the forces of darkness. However, we must also resist these onslaughts and instead take an optimistic view of our situation. Like war, optimism can be pervasive and helps to subdue any rising sense of fear.

We must, however, be deliberate about our optimism. Otherwise, we may get lost in discouragement and despair of any failings we encounter. We must be tenacious in the ultimate end we wish to gain. That end is to remain an unwavering constitutional republic based on a set of Judeo-Christian values and principles. We must not fear these and instead embrace each.

Our path requires course corrections. To move our experiment in democracy forward, we should fight and reject the tired and failed political paths and instead pursue a more correct path that shines a bright light on liberty, a path with greater and greater control of our livelihoods instead of being controlled by fewer and fewer of the too-long-in-power politicians. They have discarded us like old trash.

Our will, our individual liberties and freedoms, remain powerful forces and must be understood and applied smartly. We must not be overly stubborn. Following the Constitution as our guide and adapting to change as we have throughout history, we learn more about what freedoms humans desire.

At times, however, we have to fall back on what got us here. We cannot afford to lose our God-given human rights and the strong inner desire for freedom to choose and to breathe the fresh air of liberty. We must stand up and speak out to challenge our so-called “leaders” of government. We put them in charge; we can remove them as well.

It is through our rights and privileges as American citizens that we challenge the political class and leverage our election process so “we the people” can decide who will govern.

We must not allow a small percentage of the powerful to overtake our position on America’s battlefield. We, as free-thinking and acting individuals, must control how we will live and not allow a few passionate others to change our way of life.

To the silent and currently indifferent majority: Wake up. America is at risk of being lost in the dustbin of history to socialism. The very heart and soul of America is at stake.

In war, as in life, most failure comes from inaction. We face a pivotal moment that can change the course of history of our nation.

We the people must challenge every politician at every level.

We also must stand and support our law enforcement professionals: They are the pointy end of the spear defending us against anarchy.

Now is the time to act.

MINAS TIRITH—Orcs marched on Minas Tirith this morning in a mostly peaceful protest.

The rioters marched for peace, justice, and love in a calm, peaceful, orderly gathering outside the city walls. The mostly peaceful protesters launched peaceful siege projectiles at the city and sent Nazguls to maul Gondorian soldiers in a demonstration of their love and tolerance.

"Everything is very calm, very peaceful here," said a reporter from Gondor News Network. "It's very tranquil." Just then, an Oliphaunt charged right at him and flattened him into lembas bread.

Gondor's government was criticized for "police brutality" when, after a long period of inaction, Rohan's armies finally charged in to break things up.

"We were just peacefully protesting - Gondor had no right to peacefully protest back," said one Orc. "Two of their agents were even having a contest to see how many of us they could kill - and they were killing the majestic, endangered Oliphaunts! I'm literally shaking right now."

It’s Official: Social Justice Warriors ARE Mentally Ill by Lance Weston

A fascinating new study has been published in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science that makes sense of disparate findings on Leftists that I have been reporting for some time: [Pathogen Disgust Predicts Stigmatization of Individuals with Mental Health Conditions, by Eugene Dawydiak et al., Evolutionary Psychological Science, 2020]. It implies that poor mental health—and the Leftist views that are associated with this—spreads like pathogens, infecting people with worldviews that make them less likely to have children and less likely to defend Western civilization from barbarism.

I reported a few weeks ago that young, politically Leftist people—lovingly known as “Social Justice Warriors” (SJWs)—suffer from relatively high levels of mental illness. In fact, according to data from the Pew Research Center, 45.9% of white “Liberals” aged between 18 and 29 have been diagnosed with a mental illness, compared to 20% of comparable “Conservatives.” And among white female “Liberals” in this age-range, 56% have been diagnosed with a mental illness.

According to psychologist T.E. Joiner, there is sound evidence that conditions such as depression are contagious. If you spend a lot of time with someone suffering from depression, then you will tend to adopt their nihilistic thought patterns—that life is pointless and it’s futile doing anything—and become depressed yourself. And you will also be less likely to have children [Contagious depression, by T. E. Joiner, Journal of Personal and Social Psychology, 1994].

Also, I’ve reported studies which found that ways of thinking that would potentially destroy a society emanate from genetic mutants, who have consequent mental problems, including depression.

But now it appears these ways of thinking can spread through society, influencing even relatively normal people to hold destructive world views and so, in effect, go mad themselves.

By contrast, conservatives are more likely to be mentally healthy, to see life as eternally important, and are more likely to want and to have children.

If all of this is true, then it would make sense that we would have evolved to react to people who are mentally ill as if they carried some virulent pathogen which could infect us. This is because there really is in a sense in which the mentally ill can spread mental illness to otherwise healthy people and, in doing so, subvert the fitness of the entire society by making people think that it is pointless fighting for the survival of their people, and thus of their genes—because ethnic groups, as Australian geneticist Frank Salter has pointed out, are extended genetic families [On Genetic Interests, by Frank Salter, 2006]. It’s pointless having children, according to this dark worldview, because their lives will be pointless as well.

This is what the new study in Evolutionary Psychological Science—Pathogen Disgust Predicts Stigmatization of Individuals with Mental Health Conditions—has found.

According to the study, whose lead author, Eugene Dawydiak is based at Scotland’s Glasgow University, it has long been hypothesized that we stigmatize people who are noticeably unhealthy, such as those who are obese, due our adaptations towards disease-avoidance. But this had still to be clearly proven.

In an attempt to prove it, the team looked at how scores on a psychological instrument that measures the strength of your disgust response—the Three Domains Disgust Scale—was associated with the extent to which people stigmatized three mental health conditions: schizophrenia, skin-picking disorder, and sexual sadism. Scores on “disgust” and “stigmatization” were found to be positively correlated.

In other words, we stigmatize the mentally ill because we are disgusted by them--and “disgust” is an evolutionary means of avoiding disease. This would, therefore, be consistent with the evidence that mental illness—which correlates such as Leftist views associated with reduced evolutionary fitness—acts like a contagious illness, which can be caught just like Covid-19, and which has devastating consequences for the people who catch it in terms of their ability to enjoy life or to have children.

When the mental health conditions were analyzed separately, there were positive correlations for sexual sadism and skin-picking but not for schizophrenia; so disgust-sensitivity is not clearly associated with stigmatizing schizophrenics.

This is interesting, because, although depression has been shown to be contagious, I am not aware of any evidence that schizophrenia is contagious.

This is perhaps because schizophrenia has been demonstrated to be extremely strongly genetic; it is approximately 0.8 heritable [Is Schizophrenia Inherited? by Scott Frothingham, Healthline, May 23, 2019]. Depression, by contrast, is about 0.4 heritable for women and 0.3 heritable for men [How Heritable is Depression? by Kayt Sukel, Gene Sight, 2019].That means it is much more influenced by environmental factors, including who you associate with.

In the authors’ article summary, they qualify that:

These results potentially implicate overgeneralization of infectious disease avoidance in the stigmatization of individuals with mental health conditions.

But, based on the evidence of the contagiousness of certain kinds of mental illness, of which the authors do not show awareness, their qualification is open to question.

Thus it could be reasonably be argued that their results do not display evidence of an “overgeneralization of infectious disease avoidance” at all. Instead, their results are indeed consistent with certain kinds of mental illness operating like infectious diseases and humans, therefore, being evolved to respond to those with these mental health conditions as if they, indeed, were carrying an infectious disease.

Which, it could be reasonably argued, they are.

So, the authors’ results are not, as they argue, an example of the “Smoke Detector Principle”—where we are prone to “false positives” because over-detection is far safer than even the possibility of under-detection. Instead, the results indicate an adaptive response to contagious, serious mental illness which, if allowed to spread, can subvert the normal functioning of the entire society.

We see this with the power that SJW agitators currently have to shut down free debate a.k.a. science. These SJWs, with their depressed and thus nihilistic worldview, are literally carriers of a form of psychological plague--a plague that is far more destructive than Covid-19.

A dangerous, far-right extremist has suggested that we treat people of all races equally, shocked and horrified sources confirmed Friday.

The hateful bigot has been canceled for his controversial comments that people should be treated with respect no matter their skin color.

"I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.”

The offensive comments were platformed at large protests and marches, and everyone associated with the problematic racist has also been canceled.

"I mean, this is literally Nazism," said one progressive Twitter user. "He might as well have grown out a little mustache and invaded Russia. We are scouring his old Facebook photos for swastikas and racial slurs as we speak. I'm sure there's a ton of hateful stuff there."

When the world became unrecognizable in less than a decade by Simon Black

In the year 1520, exactly 500 years ago, a German scholar named Johan Schoner completed a map of the world that was widely considered to be humanity’s most advanced understanding of geography at that time.

There’s scarcely any American continent. Instead he drew some amorphous blobs to mark Brazil and the ‘West Indies’. And there’s a very narrow body of water where the Pacific Ocean is supposed to be, separating Brazil and India.

Obviously we know this is totally wrong. But it was science’s best understanding of the world in 1520.

Then, in 1529, a Venetian named Giovanni Ramusio created an updated map based on the various explorations and discoveries throughout the 1520s.

Ramusio’s map shows the eastern coastline of North and South America, from Newfoundland to the tip of Argentina, and the west coast from Peru through Mexico, with incredible precision and accuracy.

Even by today’s standards, Ramusio’s map looks right. You can see the outline of Florida and North Carolina, the prominence of Brazil, the Gulf of Mexico, etc. almost to the same standard as a modern day map in 2020.

The difference between the two maps is extraordinary. In less than a decade, humanity’s knowledge of the world grew from an almost ‘Dark Ages’ mentality, to that of our modern world.

Their world literally became unrecognizable in less than a decade.

And this newfound scientific understanding ushered in a new era of commerce and wealth that had never been seen before.

It’s amazing when you think about it – how quickly the world can radically change… sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. We’ve seen plenty of examples in our own lifetimes.

In 1995 hardly anyone had even heard of the Internet. By 2005 it became so ubiquitous that we couldn’t imagine our lives without it.

In 2000 hardly anyone had a mobile phone. By 2010 nearly everyone had one.

At the start of 2007, no one had ever seen a touch-screen smart phone – Steve Jobs would unveil the first ever iPhone in January of that year.

And in less than a decade, our entire species has become completely zombified, swiping and scrolling our lives away while we walk, eat, and drive without ever looking up.

Just like the world maps in the 1520s, each of these trends represents a radical shift in the way we live, work, and engage with one another.

We’re living through another one right now… a powerful, dangerous social trend that’s being driven by anger and ignorance.

Think about it: 5 years ago around this time, things still felt pretty normal.

There was always political bickering and ideological conflict… but discourse was pretty civil. No one advocated for violence or called someone else a racist simply for having a different opinion.

Then all of a sudden, in late 2015, people started becoming completely unglued.

At first the madness was isolated– ultra-liberal universities, pockets of social media. We saw crybully students in California and on the east coast physically blocking certain speakers from setting foot on campus – anyone whose opinions they found ‘offensive’.

Like most movements, this one started slowly… but quickly gathered momentum.

Suddenly it became acceptable to expect everyone else to conform to your whiny sensitivities.

Terms like “safe space” entered the lexicon, and ‘social justice warriors’’ started demanding that we avoid using certain everyday words and pronouns to ensure that no one would be offended.

At the same time, socialists came out of hiding and quickly became mainstream. Some of the most popular politicians in the world now are card-carrying socialists.

These people despise wealth. They hate profit. They’re mistrustful of private property. They believe that many private industries should be owned and controlled by the government.

Five years after it all started, these movements– social, economic, etc. have all merged together… and become violent.

Thugs now roam the streets of major cities, physically assaulting anyone they deem an enemy of their movement.

It’s ironic that these criminals call themselves ‘anti-fascists’ or ‘antifa’ given how similar their tactics are to Hitler’s ‘Brownshirts’ in 1920s Germany.

At one recent protest in California, a conservative politician was threatened by an antifa thug who said, “I just want you dead,” and “You’re racist… I can tell by looking at you.”

Protestors, meanwhile, held up signs like “Can’t have capitalism without racism!”

This is now considered acceptable, mainstream thinking – and not just in the Land of the Free. It’s all over the world.

This trend is a major force, like a runaway freight train. And every day they’re more emboldened, so it’s picking up speed.

One might simply hope that it all goes away… that, someday soon, people come to their senses and sanity is restored.

But as we used to say in the military, hope is not a course of action. And given a broader view of history, it’s unlikely that this trend goes gentle into that good night. In fact it’s far more likely to accelerate.

And just like other major trends, this one also stands to fundamentally transform the way we live, work, and do business.

Think about it – this movement, which grows stronger by the day, wants to seize private property, nationalize entire industries, raise taxes to sky-high levels, bankrupt the Treasury with unaffordable entitlements, label all white males as ‘racist,’ and physically assault intellectual dissenters.

It’s fair to say this might have a bit of an impact.

Never forget that we’re talking about people who are irrational and prone to violence.

So, if you haven’t already, I’d encourage you to start thinking about a Plan B.

OLUMBUS, Ohio - Local depressed woman Jane Lively mindlessly broke the hot dog-eating world record yesterday after consuming 76 weiners in her darkened, unkempt living room, concerned but impressed sources confirmed.

“Last week I didn’t feel like doing meal planning, so instead I just nabbed a palette of hot dogs from Costco,” said Lively. “I barely remember it, really — I threw a shit-ton of dogs into a boiling pot and put on a Frightened Rabbit record. Less than an hour later, I’ve got an empty tray in front of me, right before I locked into ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ reruns with the sound off. Most days I feel like I barely exist, so the last thing I’d expected was to ever break a world record.”

Former Guinness World Records representative Thomas Sandoval verified Lively’s record-breaking depression binge using footage sent by her roommate, Cassie Degas, who started filming “somewhere around number 12 or 13.”

“I’ll be honest, it took me a while to realize I was watching Ms. Lively and not a found-footage horror film [Degas] sent me by mistake. I’ve never seen such a joyless and disturbing world record attempt in my life,” said Sandoval. “She’s obviously not a trained competitive eater, but she was still dipping the buns in water and eating three dogs at a time. I couldn’t even finish all the footage — instead, I just gave her the record and then immediately quit my job. I’ll also never eat another hot dog so long as I live.”

Former world record holder Joey Chestnut was outraged by Lively’s use of “performance enhancing debilitating illnesses.”

“It’s bullshit, if you ask me. I’ve trained for years to become the best at gorging and debasing my body with encased meat, only to be upstaged by this woman and her chemical imbalance,” said Chestnut. “Call me an ableist, but there needs to be a separate league for depressed people… or at least, put an asterisk next to her name until she starts taking SSRIs.”

Lively’s friends and family are pushing for her to seek professional help, but only after competing in the official Nathan’s hot dog-eating contest later this year.

Sweden Was Right After All, Rest Of The World Was Punk’d by Mike Whitney

Why is the media so fixated on Sweden’s coronavirus policy? What difference does it make?

Sweden shrugged off dire predictions of mass die-offs from COVID-19 and did not shut down their entire economy and society, and now their response has been proven correct while the rest of the world stumbled into mass hysteria.

Sweden settled on a policy that they thought was both sustainable and would save as many lives as possible. They weren’t trying to ‘show anyone up’ or ‘prove how smart they were’. They simply took a more traditionalist approach that avoided a full-scale lockdown. That’s all.

But that’s the problem, isn’t it? And that’s why Sweden has been so harshly criticized in the media, because they refused to do what everyone else was doing. They refused to adopt a policy that elites now universally support, a policy that scares people into cowering submission. The Swedish model is a threat to that approach because it allows people to maintain their personal freedom even in the midst of a global pandemic. Ruling class elites don’t want that, that is not in their interests. What they want is for the people to meekly accept the rules and conditions that lead to their eventual enslavement. That’s the real objective, complete social control, saving lives has nothing to do with it. Sweden opposed that approach which is why Sweden has to be destroyed. It’s that simple.

Of course, none of this has anything to do with Sweden’s fatality rate, which is higher than some and lower than others. (Sweden has 543 deaths per million, which means roughly 1 death in every 2,000 people.) But like every other country, the vast majority of Swedish fatalities are among people 70 years and older with underlying health conditions. (“90% of the country’s deaths have been among those over 70.”) Sweden was not successful in protecting the people in its elderly care facilities, so large numbers of them were wiped out following the outbreak. Sweden failed in that regard and they’ve admitted they failed. Even so, the failures of implementation do not imply that the policy is wrong. Quite the contrary. Sweden settled on a sustainable policy, that keeps the economy running, preserves an atmosphere of normality, and exposes its young, low-risk people to the infection, thus, moving the population closer to the ultimate goal of “herd immunity”.

Presently, Sweden is very close to reaching herd immunity which is a condition in which the majority have developed antibodies that will help to fend-off similar sars-covid infections in the future. Absent a vaccine, herd immunity is the best that can be hoped for. It ensures that future outbreaks will be less disruptive and less lethal. Take a look at this excerpt from an article at the Off-Guardian which helps to explain what’s really going on:

“Sweden’s health minister understood that the only chance to beat COVID-19 was to get the Swedish population to a Herd Immunity Threshold against COVID-19, and that’s exactly what they have done…

The Herd Immunity Threshold (“HIT”) for COVID-19 is between 10-20%

This fact gets less press than any other. Most people understand the basic concept of herd immunity and the math behind it. In the early days, some public health officials speculated that COVID-19’s HIT was 70%. Obviously, the difference between a HIT of 70% and a HIT of 10-20% is dramatic, and the lower the HIT, the quicker a virus will burn out as it loses the ability to infect more people, which is exactly what COVID-19 is doing everywhere, including the U.S, which is why the death curve above looks the way it looks.

Scientists from Oxford, Virginia Tech, and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, all recently explained the HIT of COVID-19 in this paper:

We searched the literature for estimates of individual variation in propensity to acquire or transmit COVID-19 or other infectious diseases and overlaid the findings as vertical lines in Figure 3. Most CV estimates are comprised between 2 and 4, a range where naturally acquired immunity to SARS-CoV-2 may place populations over the herd immunity threshold once as few as 10-20% of its individuals are immune….

Naturally acquired herd immunity to COVID-19 combined with earnest protection of the vulnerable elderly – especially nursing home and assisted living facility residents — is an eminently reasonable and practical alternative to the dubious panacea of mass compulsory vaccination against the virus.

This strategy was successfully implemented in Malmo, Sweden, which had few COVID-19 deaths by assiduously protecting its elder care homes, while “schools remained open, residents carried on drinking in bars and cafes, and the doors of hairdressers and gyms were open throughout.

One of the most vocal members of the scientific community discussing COVID-19’s HIT is Stanford’s Nobel-laureate Dr. Michael Levitt. Back on May 4, he gave this great interview to the Stanford Daily where he advocated for Sweden’s approach of letting COVID-19 spread naturally through the community until you arrive at HIT. He stated:

If Sweden stops at about 5,000 or 6,000 deaths, we will know that they’ve reached herd immunity, and we didn’t need to do any kind of lockdown. My own feeling is that it will probably stop because of herd immunity. COVID is serious, it’s at least a serious flu. But it’s not going to destroy humanity as people thought.

Guess what? That’s exactly what happened. As of today, 7 weeks after his prediction, Sweden has 5,550 deaths. In this graph, you can see that deaths in Sweden PEAKED when the HIT was halfway to its peak (roughly 7.3%) and by the time the virus hit 14% it was nearly extinguished.” (“Second wave? Not even close“, JB Handley, The Off-Guardian)

In other words, Sweden is rapidly approaching the endgame which means that restrictions can be dropped entirely and normal life can resume. They will have maintained their dignity and freedom while the rest of the world hid under their beds for months on end. They won’t have to reopen their primary schools because they never shut them down to begin with. Numerous reports indicate that young children are neither at risk nor do they pass the virus to others. Most Americans don’t know this because the propaganda media has omitted the news from their coverage. Here’s a clip from the National Review which helps to explain:

Kari Stefansson, CEO of the Icelandic company deCODE genetics in Reykjavík, studied the spread of COVID-19 in Iceland with Iceland’s Directorate of Health and the National University Hospital. His project has tested 36,500 people; as of this writing,

Children under 10 are less likely to get infected than adults and if they get infected, they are less likely to get seriously ill. What is interesting is that even if children do get infected, they are less likely to transmit the disease to others than adults. We have not found a single instance of a child infecting parents.” (“Icelandic Study: ‘We Have Not Found a Single Instance of a Child Infecting Parents.’“, National Review)

This is just one of many similar reports from around the world. Most of the schools in Europe have already reopened and lifted restrictions on distancing and masks. Meanwhile, in the US, the reopening of schools has become another contentious political issue pitting Trump against his Democrat adversaries who are willing to sacrifice the lives of schoolchildren to prevent the president from being reelected. It’s a cynical-counterproductive approach that reveals the vindictiveness of the people who support it. In an election year, everything is politics. (Watch Tucker Carlson’s short segment on “Kids cannot afford to stay locked down.“)

Here’s a question for you: Have you ever wondered why the virus sweeps through the population and then seemingly dissipates and dies out? In fact, the virus doesn’t simply die-out, it runs out of people to infect. But how can that be when only 1 of 7 people will ever contract the virus?

The answer is immunity, either natural immunity or built up immunity from other Sars-Covid exposure. Here’s more from the Off Guardian piece:

“Scientists are now showing evidence that up to 81% of us can mount a strong response to COVID-19 without ever having been exposed to it before:

Cross-reactive SARS-CoV-2 T-cell epitopes revealed preexisting T-cell responses in 81% of unexposed individuals, and validation of similarity to common cold human coronaviruses provided a functional basis for postulated heterologous immunity.

This alone could explain WHY the Herd Immunity Threshold (HIT) is so much lower for COVID-19 than some scientists thought originally, when the number being talked about was closer to 70%. Many of us have always been immune!“ (“Second wave? Not even close”, JB Handley, The Off-Guardian)

It means that Fauci and the idiots in the media have been lying to us the whole time. It means that Covid-19 is not a totally new virus for which humans have no natural immunity or built-in protection. Covid is a derivative of other infections which is why the death toll isn’t alot higher.

A politician visited a village and asked what their needs were.

”We have 2 basic needs sir,” replied the villager.

“Firstly, we have a hospital, but there’s no doctor.”

On hearing this, politician whipped out his cellphone, and after speaking for a while he reassured the village leader that the doctor would be there the next day. He then asked about the second problem.

“Secondly sir, there is no cellphone coverage anywhere in this village.”


Facebook confirmed today that to prevent the spread of coronavirus and promote a safe space to virtue-signal, masks will be required on all profile pictures going forward.

If you log in to Facebook you will be prompted to change your profile picture to one where you are wearing a mask. If you don't have a mask, Facebook offers digital mask filters to give the appearance that you're wearing one. Those who refuse the mask will be asked to delete their accounts.

"This is an issue of public safety," said Mark Zuckerberg. "We were seeing people just commenting on things and posting memes and stuff while their face was clearly visible. The CDC currently says that masks are good, and therefore, you must wear a mask." An assistant then whispered in Zuckerberg's ear. "Oh, uh, this just in: the CDC now says that masks are bad. So we'll take this all back." But, before he could reverse the mask order, the CDC issued another update saying that masks were good again.

"Anyway, yes, a mask for everyone. It's a small thing to do to make everyone feel safe."


A man and his wife checked into a hotel.

An hour after checking in, the man calls the front desk.

"My wife and I had a fight and she is going to jump out the window."

"That's a personal matter and we can’t help in this situation.", the front desk replied.

"Personal matter my ass the window doesn't open!"


The Washington Post published an editorial today calling on the New England Patriots to change their team name due to its association with the United States of America.

The article called for the Patriots to change their team name immediately to something that doesn't imply they are proud of their country.

"The negative associations with the horrible country of America should be left in the past," the editorial board wrote. "This name is very offensive to austere religious scholars in other countries, liberals, and Canadians. We must call on the NFL to do better, to be better."

"They must change the name to something that signals that they are not proud to live in this country."

Suggestions for the new name included The New England Colonizers, The New England Oppressors, and The New England Sorry For Being Americans.

The Summer of Our Gaslighting Discontent by Brian Cates

I’ve got some bad news for you, folks. To get to that massive Trump landslide in November, we’re going to have to go through an ordeal because there will be a relentless and almost overwhelming amount of gaslighting until the election gets here.

A massive amount of time, effort and money will be invested by the Progressive Left to hide the real cultural shift going on in this country, as they use the legacy media to try to manufacture a fake cultural shift in the other direction.

Confederate statues were the start, now in less than two weeks the mob has moved on to founding father Thomas Jefferson and President Abraham Lincoln.

Major corporations are sending out press releases and emails to all their customers vowing to help fight America’s systemic racism and play an important role in the cultural shift away from the country’s irredeemably racist past. Netflix, Amazon, Patreon, GoFundMe, OpenTable, Nike, the NFL, MLB, NBA, the list is endless.

More statues will be removed. More brands will change their name. More corporations will announce massive donations to black causes, including and especially Black Lives Matters, the Marxist Socialist group that functions as the foot soldiers on the ground, driving mass protests.

Thanks to Democrat governors and mayors like Bill DeBlasio, Jenny Durkan, Lori Lightfoot, Jacob Frey, Tim Walz, Gretchen Whitmer, Andrew Cuomo and many others, Americans are getting a LONG HARD LOOK at what happens when you elect ideological lunatics to crucially important jobs in their state/city.

Just the day before he sent city workers to weld shut the gates to Jewish public parks in New York City, DeBlasio was very publicly rubbing shoulders with hundreds of thousands of people at mass protests.

The sane citizens in these blue states have now got to be asking themselves: How did we end up with these incompetent ideologues having such control over our lives?

Remember what I wrote months ago: The Progressive Left across the cultural spectrum has set themselves up to fail at an impossible task.

The constant relentless never-ending gaslighting this Summer and into the Fall will be coming from every direction: from network news channels, from sports channels, from movie-streaming services, from chain restaurants, from many major corporations, and all of them will be delivering the same smothering message.

Ever since Donald Trump shocked them by winning that 2016 election, the Progressive Leftist leadership has been preparing for this sustained ideological blitzkrieg on the rest of America as they go all “1984” on the rest of us.

Very carefully and very deliberately the Progressive Left has spent the past 3 1/2 years positioning its resources and its people for a massive sustained gaslighting campaign they would immerse this entire country in starting the summer before the election.

Yes, they have been carefully positioning and preparing for this epic gaslighting campaign targeting the rest of the country for 3 1/2 years.

In the news rooms…

In the corporate board rooms…

In the broadcast booths…

In the sports leagues…

In the major magazines…

In video games…

In comic books…

Who could ever deny the reality of the gigantic, Mt. Everest-sized cultural shift away from the white supremacist Donald J. Trump that the country is presently going through? Especially when it’s coming at everyone in America from all different directions across the cultural spectrum with one unified voice?

A massive cultural shift away from systemic racism, white privilege and the pathetic white fragility upon which President Donald Trump has built his entire presidency? A huge shift towards Joe Biden, the man who will give us all the highly desired third term of Barack H. Obama?

This Is Only the Beginning
If you’re already sick of this gaslighting, well gird your loins: we’ve all got 4 ½ more months of this insanity to go.

Wait until the NFL season starts in August. The gaslighting campaign will be in full swing by that point. They’re just warming up their throats at this point here in mid-June, testing the gaslighting machinery, running the quality control tests.

By August, when the NFL’s preseason games start, you’re going to see the network broadcasters go back to showing the anthem before every single game, just so they can show the kneelers and talk about them.

After a big viewership plunge in 2018 due to the constant showcasing of the kneeling for the national anthem, the NFL went back to what it had always done before: not showing the anthem except at special games, such as the Thanksgiving game and the Super Bowl. Players stayed in the locker rooms.

See, the NFL only began showing the anthem before every game when Colin Kaepernick started kneeling. Before Kaepernick started doing this, most NFL broadcasts skipped the national anthem, just like they always skipped the player introductions and the coin toss.

Watch what happens this upcoming season every single time Drew Brees or JJ Watt refuse to take a knee during the national anthem when the US flag is being displayed. They seem to think they managed this flag controversy with a couple of comments. They have no idea. The mob is never satisfied.

Every single week they’re going to have to kneel or be forced to apologize…again…for not kneeling. This will begin in the preseason, which will run all through August. Then in September the regular season will start. There will be eight weeks of games thru September and October.

So, this will be twelve weeks with every game broadcast beginning with the national anthem, cameras finding the kneeling people, broadcasters discussing white privilege and America’s systemic racism problem and how wonderful it is that the culture is shifting away from it at last.

Every single game will start this way. With a political protest followed by a political lecture disguised as sports coverage. Three months of this. And this is just what the NFL is going to have on tap for its dwindling fan base from August to November 3. Other sports leagues are also preparing to ‘do their part’.

Because remember, November 3 is the target. All this relentless gaslighting has but one true purpose: to get Donald J. Trump out of the White House. It’ll be coming from all directions, celebrities, actors, musicians, authors, athletes, politicians, in one never-ending wave.

Their Power Is an Illusion
It’s all fake. There is no “huge cultural shift here in America” away from its supposedly “systemic racist” roots. It’s all an illusion. Tiny Marxist mobs are running around pulling down statues and dancing on top of them, celebrating the erasure of the ‘racist past’.

They aren’t really erasing anything. America is still here. But we’re in for an awful 4 1/2 months of relentless gaslighting and I want you to all be prepared for it. Endure to the end. And then pay the Marxist mobs back for what they put the rest of us through.

Their attempts to relentlessly gaslight us “1984-style” for over 5 months is only going to build Trump’s coming massive red wave even bigger.

Gaslighting us about our “systemic racism”.

Our “white privilege”.

About Trump’s [and his supporter’s] “white supremacy”.

About Biden’s mental deterioration.

About the economic comeback.

About the jobs explosion.

About SpyGate and UkraineGate developments.

All this is going to end up doing is enraging all the normal people in the blue states.

Believe you me, every single sane American citizen in this country that can vote is going to be properly motivated to do that by the time November 3 gets here.

After 4 1/2 months of this insanity? Trust me on this, they’re going to have all the motivation they need.

4 1/2 months of being relentlessly ideologically assaulted by this 1984 cult rabidly yelling at us if we’re ‘down for the glorious cause’ and are we ‘ready to join the revolution yet’ and prove we have embraced their Big Brother by taking the knee and saying the words.

They don’t understand. We’ll have already joined a real revolution. And it’s not the one they are babbling to us about. It’s a popular movement made of Americans, not fanatical 1984-type cult members spouting Marxist socialist crap.

There actually has been a dramatic cultural shift in this country over the past few years. But it’s been in the wrong direction as far as these Marxist losers are concerned.

So, the Herculean task the Progressive Left here in America to set itself up to fail at is this: They have to hide the real cultural shift while manufacturing a fake one.

We’ll be relentlessly gaslighted for the next several months about ‘an increasingly unpopular President Trump under siege from all directions’ while the entire culture SHIFTS to Joe Biden [or whoever comes out of the DNC in August as the nominee].

Ever see the movie “Labyrinth”? Jennifer Connelly is a young girl named Sarah whose infant brother has been taken captive by the Goblin King [David Bowie]. He tries one deception after another to get Sarah to yield to him & in the end… he must beg.

In the final dramatic confrontation, Sarah defeats the Goblin King forever by coming to a powerful realization of the truth:

“You have no power over me!”

All the “power” of these tiny Marxist goon squads and their corporate benefactors is an illusion. It’s not real. It only looks impressive and powerful when it’s seen through the lens of popular and social media.

So keep this truth in mind the next 4 1/2 months as you watch many prominent celebrities, newscasters, sports stars, musicians, and major companies all endlessly babbling about this awesome cool cultural shift away from America’s systemic racism [and Donald Trump!] to Marxist Social Justice and Joe Biden.

Well let them babble. This 2020 election is not the referendum on America’s Systemic Racist Past as the gaslighters are so desperate to frame it.

It’s about a return to SANITY. That’s what most Americans will demand, and the elections results will demonstrate that.
