gore-doomsayerDAVOS — While at the World Economic Forum, rightful President Al Gore delivered a stern warning on climate change, saying the world will not make it past the year 2012 if something isn't done immediately.

"The situation has never been more dire," said Gore while wiping the lipstick of a Swiss hooker off his face. "It's more dire than it was yesterday, and more dire than it was the day before and even more dire than the day before that."

Sources say the crowd began to fall asleep as he continued.

"In fact, we have minus 11 years to fix this," Gore said as he began shouting and waving his arms to hold everyone's attention.

"By 2012, we will have reached the point of no return, and trillions of people will die painful deaths and the polar bears will have to grow gills and live in the water because there will be no more ice and Kevin Costner and his friends will have to help us escape from artificial islands in the ocean and lead us to the mythical 'Dryland' unless someone builds a time machine back to the year 2000 to warn the world of its impending doom! Trust the experts!"

The consensus of climate scientists voiced their agreement with Gore by accepting his funding and then booking tv hits on CNN to warn of the imminent disaster 11 years ago.

At publishing time, experts confirmed that Gore's speech had reduced global temperatures by half a degree.

changing-narrative-chartThe Narratives are Falling Fast


Grab an IPA and get ready to celebrate lots of fantastic news this week!

Narratives are falling all over now that the House is in patriotic hands.

The world is turning on ESG and its enablers at BlackRock in a big way. The Federal Reserve wants no part of social engineering.

The greatest ESG enthusiasts are beholden to big finance, which includes most large public companies and universities. Of note, the most vigorous supporters come from a narrow cohort of students working on a Master's degree. Undergrads, and especially Ph.D. students, want no part. This might be due to the liberal arts nature of most Master's degrees. Or maybe not.

The Vaxx narrative force-fed for three years is dead now that a dangerous drift in the type of antibodies produced in the jabs has been discovered. It's not that the vaxx reduced Covid; it reduced the symptoms. The change in antibody type allows the virus to set up camp and stick around within a person. This might be the cause of long Covid in some.

West Virginia dumped BlackRock, and while the state is small, it impacted the company's bottom line. ESG is Chairman Larry Fink's dream Child to enact a one-world government where he is the new global central banker, and the WEF serves as a Board of Directors.

Speaking of West Virginia, there is talk of a Bill Gates-sponsored liquid sodium reactor to be built by AEP south of Charleston. That's the chemical row where one large, heavy chemical plane after another operates. The base load is large and steady. This part of the USA is to heavy chemicals as Houston is to oil refining.

Come over to Skye's Links; the news is excellent this week. Very good for the good guys…



jinping-smilesThe call to ban gas stoves in the U.S., based on environmental concerns, certainly drew backlash from an angry public tired of seeing their household appliances, critical possessions and standard of living being targeted.

After all, they've already gotten our incandescent light bulbs and flush toilets in many quarters. They've meddled with the design of our cars and guns. They're trying to get our meat, telling us to eat bugs instead. Many consumers, and professional chefs, who say gas is best for cooking, simply put their collective foot down.

Where did this lunacy come from?

About where you'd expect -- from our enemies.



sonia-sotomayorSupreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is recognized for three things: (1) She was the first Hispanic female justice on the Court; (2) She’s a leftist’s leftist; and (3) she is not wise but is almost staggeringly ignorant and biased.

All those factors benefit Democrats, but now they’re getting worried, not because of her manifest legal and intellectual deficits but because there’s a possibility that they will not hold the White House and Senate after the 2024 election.

Barack Obama nominated Sotomayor to the Supreme Court in 2009, following her eleven-year stint as a Clinton appointee on the Second Circuit. Of Puerto Rican heritage, she has the Ivy League credentials that mean so much to Democrats. No matter that she got them being an affirmative action baby.



cancer-cellsSometimes an institution or movement turns on the society that supports it, harming the whole for its own benefit. A public bureaucracy can forget its underlying purpose and focus on perpetuating itself, or an organization comes to believe that the rest of society owes it special privileges. When an organ within the body of society becomes thus corrupted, and proves itself unwilling to reform, society must excise the diseased tissue before it spreads.

Cancer starts when cells within an organ begin to operate outside the strictures and rules that the body’s cells were programmed to follow.

As a cancer grows, it slowly corrupts the organ it arose within, impairing or changing its function. Demanding more nourishment to support its own rapid growth, it saps the body’s ability to support the rest of its billions of cells. In time the whole body deteriorates, though the cancer continues to grow and extract nourishment to the end, effectively repurposing the body solely towards its own support.

Death may be averted by removing the offending cancer, or even the entire organ from which it arose. But if the organ is vital to survival or the cancer has infiltrated other vital organs, excision is not possible. Sometimes the cancer may be poisoned or killed with radiation or immunotherapy without killing the entire body. But if it cannot be so dealt with, it takes the entire body down with it. This is a relatively common way to die.

Society is in many ways like the human body. Its various organs perform their functions to support the whole, all interdependent for survival. Corruption of one organ will, if left unchecked, corrupt the whole body.



maddems-ways For all Joe Biden’s talk about “semi-fascist” and “un-American,” “ultra-MAGA” Republicans, it is the Democratic Party that has far more radically changed. It is descended into a woke, neo-socialist, radically green party. And it is committed, as Barack Obama once promised, to fundamentally transforming America. How it proceeds with that agenda is now as entirely predictable as it is creepy.



I’m relaxed and thinking clearly!

I’m relaxed and thinking clearly!

Today I want to talk about the positive state that we want to aim for most of the time – which will connect us with the emotional resources and clear thinking we need to make our best decisions. Researchers like Steven Porges call it our social engagement system.

When we feel safe, and trusting, and relaxed, our heart rate and blood pressure lowers, all very beneficial for our immune system, our cardio-vascular system, our organs, and our overall health.

We’re also more connected with our higher brain functions, and the part of our vagus nerve that connects the organs of our body with our brain. This is counter to being in the protect mode of fight or flight, so it lowers our stress levels, and makes it easier to think and create with complexity.

So how do we do this?  Here’s how…



push-to-ejectBiden's Handlers are Done with Sleepy Joe

The Crisis in Brazil ________________________________________________________

We are being told that White House lawyers, those scions of virtue, found multiple locations where Biden placed top secret and other classified documents while vice president.

Come on; his lawyers are reporting this?

His handlers are clearly done with Joe, and they are taking him out. The MSM is salivating over his destruction. Why?

DC insiders say that Susan Rice is behind the coup as she stands the most to gain. As Harris moves up, Rice moves in. Either a quick decapitation of Harris or perhaps the 2024 election placing Rice within the margin of cheating puts the Obama machine back in control of the White House.

Events in Brazil so closely mirror other coups that it is apparent that a script is unfolding. Brazil is now in communist hands, and American firms are heading for the doors. But the events surrounding the removal of Trump and the removal of Bolsonaro are just too similar.

International leftists have boiled the frog too fast. Postmodernist hipsters are noticing the increasing number of deaths from "sudden." The 2020 election, truckers in Canada, Brazil, and especially the consequences of the jab are destroying faith in the government.

While conservatives lose faith in men, the left loses faith in their god, their god of government. They cannot hide; they took the jabs and are afraid.

Please join us at today's HFR. In the end, we win.



cuban-revolutionA lot is changing in South America. As many nations elect leaders with Marxist roots, we are wondering where it all goes from here. The biggest surprise is that for the first time ever, Colombia now has a leftist leader, poised to make huge changes. So is this the beginning of a Marxist revolution throughout South America? Are we going to see these nations embrace the fate of Venezuela and Cuba? What is China’s role in this, and what do they have to gain? 

On this episode, we talk about all that’s at stake in South America, how this revolutionary orbit toward Marxism is a lot like the BLM Movement here in the U.S., and how the U.S. should respond.

congress-new-leadersThe Congress has New Leaders

A Fresh Wind is Blowing.

It's about time, we have a new Speaker in Kevin McCarthy, yet nobody doubts where the power now resides. Twenty Representatives led by Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz changed the trajectory of the House of Representatives.

The BLM and queer theory flags over American embassies were hauled down and trashed, the worst of the commies were removed from committee leadership, and the long, hard slog to restore the nation begins.

The economy is in bad shape and getting worse as faith in the United States is at its lowest in history.

The old, drunk hag is gone. Ding Dong, the Witch, is Dead, and a new team of energetic patriots has joined the battle.

It is as if…as if we are experiencing a turning…a Fourth Turning where the old systems have proven themselves incapable of maintaining the fire and vigor that is America's birthright. When we needed heroes, they arose, picked up their swords and shields, and took on the entrenched leech and parasitic class.

Their motto? Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

Things will be different, and there will be tremendous economic repercussions ahead, but we might just be a nation again.

Come on over to Skye's Links. We have a lot to discuss, and we have work to do.



jerome-powell-fed-finanicialsWell, here's one we didn't see coming.

After months of wokery coming out of the Federal Reserve, with leftists promoting weird ideas like the importance of making global warming the primary consideration in assessing how the nation's money supply is to be managed, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell called out the crap and restated how monetary policy actually works.



college-graduationYoung people, are you ready for success? Want a career in a rewarding field that will lead to a fulfilling life? Don’t go to college. Be an electrician, be a plumber, be a welder,  be a carpenter — hell, learn to code — but for heaven’s sake and for that matter, your own, don’t go to college.

I know some of you are months or even years away from high school graduation, but: Don’t. Go. To. College. Okay, so if you want to be a doctor, lawyer, or physicist (more on that below), maybe look for a college that does not double as an asylum. Other than that, treat college campuses like the radioactive waste depots that they have become.



expelled-movie"It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong." 

―Voltaire, The Age of Louis XIV

In 2008, Ben Stein released a documentary film, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, that addressed the absolute intolerance within academia and the media for even a mention of "intelligent design" as opposed to unguided evolution with regard to the origin of life.  The editor of a scientific journal connected to the Smithsonian lost his job for publishing an article by Steven C. Meyer that referenced intelligent design.  Journalists who addressed the issue have been fired, and professors have lost their jobs if they admitted to considering it a viable theory.  As one might expect, the Wikipedia page on the film mocks it as propaganda.  Say the words "intelligent design," and the Darwinian cult hears "creationist."

If this sounds familiar, consider the parallel with the lab leak theory of the origin of COVID.  The entire country, and most especially virologists, epidemiologists, and doctors, has endured what proponents of the intelligent design theory within academia have experienced for decades.  From the outset of the release of COVID upon the world, any voices that opposed the Faustian Faucian narrative were vilified, censored, their careers threatened, just as those scientists or journalists who uttered the words "intelligent design."

Schools must close, masks must be worn, people must "social distance" from one another, vaccines must be mandated.  None of those things, it turns out, was necessary.  Nor was any of them based on any science, not even the vaccines.  They all parallel a plan laid out in Event 201, a World Economic Forum exercise that took place in October 2019.

Curious timing?  Indeed — especially considering the participants...



liberty-goneDid someone or something seize control of the United States?

What happened to the U.S. border? Where did it go? Who erased it? Why and how did 5 million people enter our country illegally? Did Congress secretly repeal our immigration laws? Did Joe Biden issue an executive order allowing foreign nationals to walk across the border and reside in the United States as they pleased?

Since when did money not have to be paid back? Who insisted that the more dollars the federal government printed, the more prosperity would follow? When did America embrace zero interest? Why do we believe $30 trillion in debt is no big deal?

What happened to Election Night returns? Did the fact that Americans created more electronic ballots and computerized tallies make it take so much longer to tabulate the votes?

Here are more questions to ask ourselves...



free-from-bondageOne of the most harmful ways of thinking of ourselves is as a victim. It can make it nearly impossible to find success, financially or otherwise, and undermines our capacity for relationships.

Yet this mindset is not uncommon, we’ve probably all experienced it to some degree. But for some it can create a more pervasive atmosphere in their lives.

As researchers Rahav Gabay and his colleagues have shown, this mindset has four specific qualities, that lead to three specific biases and one onerous tendency, that can skew our view of the world.

Today we’ll look at how to move away from this kind of mindset, and re-orient toward taking effective, positive action. We start with understanding that changing a victim mindset is much more complicated than the kind of “get over it” advice that’s so common – and useless.

untrusted-govtThe Search for Integrity

Over the past decade or two, the government became the home to an ancient evil; Neo-Platonism or Post Modernism is the belief that a cadre of elites should lead the great unwashed. Their tool is the Noble Lie, the grand narrative meant to grab people by their emotions and compel them to do the elite’s bidding.

Well, on today’s links, we find the Nobel Lie unfolding in all directions. From the fight to find an honest Speaker of the House to the manipulation during Covid, the ESG agenda, and the great migration of Americans in the era of Woke, the truth is coming out.

The economics are ugly as continued inflation appears baked in the cake.

Everywhere, people are waking up to the stone-cold reality that our government manipulated the truth about nearly everything, and they did it in the financial interest of our elites.

Revolutions have occurred over less, and the free fall of trust in government is accelerating.

What institutions are left to trust? Not schools, not churches, not even the Post Office. We can’t even trust that a woman is not a man in drag.

The question is this: Are we nearing the bottom? Is it time to rebuild integrity, and can it even be done?

Please join us at Skye’s Links, and let’s discuss it.



The collapse of Damar Hamlin, Buffalo Bills Safety, after a tackle, has been described as a “heart attack,” but the reader should be warned that medical events are sometimes not described properly.

What everybody who was watching the game witnessed on Monday (1/02) was Mr. Hamlin taking what looked like an ordinary hit to the chest. He and the other player both hit the ground, they both stood up, and then Hamlin collapsed in an instant.

He received at least nine minutes of CPR on the field before an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital, where he is still in critical condition.

Mr. Hamlin’s collapse was not caused by what most people think of as a “heart attack” – it was something else.



bodybag-mountainsThe only thing not going viral in China is the truth. Chinese officials are spewing lies to cover up the massive COVID carnage there.

Worse, US public-health officials dawdled for a week, allowing air travelers from China in without testing, while other countries immediately blocked infected travelers from entering.

Aerial photos and videos from China show body bags stacked outside hospitals and crematoria, funeral-home parking lots full and hospitals overwhelmed with COVID patients jammed into hallways. In Beijing and Sichuan, more than 50% of the population is infected, according to internal government documents.

More dangerous, China is also withholding laboratory evidence about what strains are sickening its population. Why do that unless they want to infect the world once more?



desantis_wokewarOn election night, I was half-watching Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s victory remarks when something quite extraordinary and encouraging caught my attention.

DeSantis evoked Churchill’s “fighting on the beaches” speech, in which Churchill stirred the resolve and patriotism of the British people in anticipation of the invasion of their homeland by the Nazis. DeSantis, of course, was not warning against Nazism: he was warning against wokeism, which he was implicitly equating with Nazism.

I had never heard a national political figure treat wokeism with such (deserved) gravity.  Here’s what he needs to do to help America get rid of it.



wishful-thinking-realistic-ideasHope lies at the heart of our aspirations and ambitions; our dreams and wishes. It fuels us to strive for goals and achievements.

It can also lead us to wish for things we cannot have, aspire to achievements we cannot reach, and fantasize dreams that we cannot fulfill.

To the degree that hope is integrated with reality, it can serve our greatest potential. To the degree that it is disconnected from reality, it can undermine that potential; keeping us floating helplessly in fantasy, unable to find traction and gain fulfillment in our lives.

Let’s talk about how we get to the first and avoid the second…



Three Megatrends to Watch in 2023


trust-brokenA lot happened during 2022, from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to political shenanigans, even worse economic shenanigans, and the nationwide breakdown of law and order.

Each is connected to a widespread loss of trust in governments, businesses, schools, and the neighbor down the street. We are rapidly changing from a high-trust society to something else.

Three megatrends are emerging. The first is the sudden step-like change in chatbot sophistication that threatens to replace the great libraries of free and open-source information with machine-curated global narratives. Drag shows in public libraries intended to withdraw public support and the destruction of monuments are features of the shift to the singular narrative.

Loss of trust in commercial institutions is everywhere. We long suspected and compiled evidence of the collaboration of big tech with big government. Now that Elon Musk is telling the world what has been happening behind the curtain, everything is suspect. Musk is a crack in the narrative; he is the point of failure exposing the massive effort devoted to information control.

The problem for the government is apparent: Propaganda ceases to work once it is known to be propaganda.

All over the world and within most corporations, technology has been used to centralize decision-making at the expense of decision quality. The current trend is to replace the mind with a computer algo. The consequence is a dramatic decline in innovation.

Without innovation, there is nothing to prevent entropy from expanding.

Breaking trust with the current systems creates a foundation for the future. Those that understand this will prosper. Others, including entire corporations and governments, will fail.

Come to the HFR, and most of all, Happy New Year!

optimism-equates-progressWelcome to the final 2022 edition of Skye’s Links!  After all the downers of this year, there’s plenty of good news to report at year’s end. We start with something written by a man known as The Sea Gypsy Philosopher, who strives to be The Three Ps – Powerful, Provocative and Poetic.  I think you’ll agree he succeeds.

Here is a lovely Christmas message to Greta Thunberg.  Her puppet masters will never allow her to see it, but you should do so.  It is a message of hope.  It is also a message that the oligopoly of censorship can no longer control.  And that is very good news:

My Christmas Gift to Greta

Good news! Honest liberal Tabbi, the man that Musk chose to release and explain the Twitter Files, is optimistic that we are finally moving in the right direction for information freedom.  It isn't just Deep State/Twitter cooperation; there are far more quislings, and they will soon be exposed:

Come on in! There’s lots more!



biggest-vote-fraud-orgThis week, Arizona leftists and RINOs admitted, under oath, that they changed the print settings, on election morning, so Republican votes would not be tabulated, on the one day most Republicans vote -- and the Maricopa County judge said “…it wasn’t intentional.”

A Republican governor candidate who easily won by multiple points was denied her rightful election.  Several million Arizona voters were disenfranchised.

Not a word from Republican leaders!

Wake up, America.

Leftists and RINOs have spent the last 40 years transforming election machinery to end your right to vote -- and they are about to finish the job.



teamup-2-destroy-freedomTwo hundred and thirty-one years ago this month, America's founders enshrined free speech as the first protection in the ratified Bill of Rights with a declaration that the government could not infringe expression.

A series of blockbuster revelations at the end of 2022 show just how imperiled those protections have become in the era of Big Tech.

From Elon Musk’s "Twitter files" to an FBI agent's candid testimony, Americans have gotten a glimpse into a once-hidden enterprise where federal agencies pressured social media platforms – directly and through proxies – to censor content under their terms of service.

The goal, it appears, was to preserve the ruling elite's favored narratives on everything from the pandemic to election integrity.



cold-ruthless-rulerDid you know that in fiscal year 2022, federal tax receipts as a share of gross domestic product (GDP) hit a near record high of 19.6 percent?

According to the U.S. Treasury, in FY 2022, total federal tax receipts and additional federal government revenue topped $4.90 trillion.  Yet, over this time, Congress spent $6.27 trillion.  The difference, the 2022 deficit, was $1.37 trillion.

Presently, the U.S. national debt is over $31.4 trillion. In December 2000, the national debt was $5.6 trillion. Over the last 22 years the U.S. national debt has increased 460 percent.  U.S. GDP over this same time, however, increased just 157 percent, from about $10 trillion to 25.7 trillion.

That’s how the U.S. government works in the 21st century, where near record tax receipts will never be enough.  Why? Because your government hates you so much it thinks it has a moral right to steal as much as they want from you.



“Who are these five boneheads? How can they be so stupid?”

Fox News host Mark Levin

After four years of legislative malfeasance by Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat myrmidons, the Republicans will soon have a 222–213 majority in the House of Representatives.

It should be obvious to anyone with a 3-dight IQ that, to accomplish anything useful with such a narrow majority, the House Republican Conference has to close ranks and prepare for a war with a radicalized Democrat minority that will continue its ongoing effort to undermine the will of the voters.

The new Republican majority will get its first chance to present a unified front on Jan. 3, when the House meets to elect a new speaker to replace Pelosi. Yet a small cadre of GOP opportunists vows not to vote for the only realistic choice — current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Here’s why this is moronic.



death-by-fearMoney troubles can tap into the most primitive emotions, including intense fear, and even reactions of flight and panic. But there are ways of using these signals, so we don’t get lost in them.

Matt wakes up in the middle of the night, anxious and troubled. Breathing shallow and high in his chest, thoughts racing… The severity of his financial troubles has just hit him. His investments have dropped significantly, and his spending has been putting him deeply into debt surprisingly quickly.

He’s in trouble, big trouble. Yet the panic is Matt’s friend; his own awareness trying to break through his defenses so he can face the real problems. And there are ways of solving these problems. But nothing happens until he’s willing to acknowledge the reality first.

Why is this panic around money so severe?  And how can you use the panic to find solutions? Let’s talk about it….

security-cameraAutomating the Narrative

Bad Ideas, But Faster


The Machine That Controls the World


Over the past decade, a vast capability was built to manipulate and control the global narrative using computer networks between government, social media, and contractors.

Elon Musk exposed the incredible depth and breadth of the government’s effort to weaponize narrative control. The system appears to be under the direction of the intelligence community, especially the FBI.

Narrative control emerged in its modern form during Occupy Wall Street; it demonstrated greatly improved capability in 2016 after the election. It grew again and lit the nation on fire with George Floyd.

By those early days of Covid-19, the system was competent as it replaced reasoned science with political dogma. Millions died due to faulty advice, while real scientists with deep credentials were marginalized and arrested.

We saw the real purpose behind the machine as government insiders chose the president for the nation, President Dunsel. A dunsel is part of a ship or vessel that serves no purpose.

By the time Russia invaded Ukraine, the system had so overgrown itself that it lacked any form of a speed brake; it had driven public policy according to its wishes while creating deep confusion worldwide.

Please join us at Skye’s links as we explore the consequences of global narrative control on health, science, and investments. We are witnessing the unraveling of something as vast as the Manhattan Project, and so far, the results have been a global disaster.



save-americaMost Americans know something has gone terribly wrong—and very abruptly—with the United States. They are certain that our wounds are almost all self-inflicted. The current pathologies are not a result of a natural disaster, an exhaustion of natural resources, plagues, or an existential war.

Crushing national debt and annual deficits, spiraling food and fuel costs amid “normal” seven-percent-plus annual inflation, bread-and-circuses entitlements, a nonexistent border, a resurgence of racial tribalism, pandemic violent criminality, and humiliation abroad—all these pathologies are easily cited as symptoms of a sick patient.

So, what are the therapies and prognoses for America?

In the spirit of constructive rather than blanket criticism, here is a partial, 10-point plan of national recovery.



katie-hobbs-votesFresh from a court victory granting her the right to examine a random sample of Arizona's ballots from its skeezy midterm election, Kari Lake has managed to notch another advance in her quest to halt the obviously fraudulent election of her Democrat rival, Katie Hobbs.

According to Just The News, citing the results of a public records request from America First Legal Foundation:

“Recently disclosed internal communications between top election officials in Arizona's Maricopa County in the immediate aftermath of Election Day reveal that they struggled to reconcile a discrepancy of almost 16,000 in outstanding ballot totals… 

‘Unable to currently reconcile SOS listing with our estimates from yesterday,’ state elections recorder Stephen Richer wrote, showing that Maricopa County estimated having 392,000 ballots left to be counted, while the secretary of state's website said there were 407,664 ballots left. ‘So there's a 15,000 difference somewhere’.”

Let us first note just where the extra 15,664 supposed votes came from: the Arizona secretary of state, who just happens to be Katie Hobbs, who claims she defeated Kari Lake by 17,116 votes (1,287,890 to 1,270,774).



left-cant-surviveIn two years or less, our system, which is already dealing with a number of threats including high prices and supply chain instability, will not remain functional in the manner most people are accustomed. If we accept this inevitability, we must then ask a logical question:

Who is going to rebuild? Whoever inherits the mantle will either bring America back to freedom and prosperity, or plunge our society into perpetual tyranny. It all depends on who survives the crisis.

One thing that gives me some hope is the fact that leftists as a sub-group of our population are completely incapable of surviving a major economic crisis event.

This is not to say that I wish them all to die; I’m only pointing out the reality that most of them won’t make it because they are ill equipped to handle a calamity. Here are the reasons why a post-collapse world would probably be devoid of common leftists:



19th-century-russPutin’s annual marathon end-of-the-year press conference has been canceled, as has the traditional “direct line” with carefully trained audiences, and his constitutionally prescribed annual address to the Federal Assembly has been postponed indefinitely (, December 15).

Speculation discussed by many watchers-in-exile is that Putin does not want to hear even slightly uncomfortable questions and cannot find a positive or reassuring theme for his typically pompous address (Svoboda, December 15).

This is primarily due to unfolding failure of his invasion of Ukraine, exemplified by such ridicule as:




the-far-countryNevil Shute (1899-1960) was my mom’s favorite author. He mirrored her sense of optimism and perseverance, so for me they are a kind of time capsule, with an emotional quality and a spirit of life that I learned, in part, from her.

If you have never read him, you’re in for a treat. Not just because they’re great stories; I recommend them for the sense of life they convey.

Nevil Shute’s stories are about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

Crises have the effect of forcing us to do things that we would otherwise not have done – for better or worse. We can have talents, strengths, and abilities that lie dormant unless and until we are challenged with an unavoidable problem to solve.

We all need this message in the troubling times all of us are facing today.

washington-fallsThe Truth is Emerging

Let Freedom Ring!

So far, Elon Musk has dropped five tweets exposing the massive corruption and collusion between Twitter, government agencies, and big finance.

We knew it was terrible, but it was horrible.

Every government agency had its finger in the pot while the founder, Jack Dorsey, retreated to smoke pot and found himself in a yurt.

He put a staff of the most radical, most transvestite, most anti-reality people possible in charge with the intent of changing reality from objective truth into whatever the government required.

They did this by tailoring the Twitter experience to the individual user by keeping track of past comments and reading cookies left behind from other web activity.

They made a big mistake as they boiled the frog too hard and fast, and now Musk is in control of their entire work product.

Elon Musk lost his child to the wokesters. He has an axe to grind, a dog in the fight. The consequences for the central planners look to be pretty bad.

Alberta is reasserting its rights under federalism, and North Carolina is at the Supreme Court, asserting the rights of its legislature to organize elections per the US Constitution.

Stagflation is the economic order of the day, and it will be here for a while. Over sixty percent of living Americans were not yet born during the last period of stagnation, and it was scrubbed from their school curriculum. The young will need guidance.

All in all, the news is very good for Freedom.

bideinmate"Committee Republicans have spoken with multiple whistleblowers from numerous schemes involving the Biden family, reviewed Hunter Biden's laptop, and received documents of previously unknown transactions," House Oversight Committee Chairman-to-be Rep. James Comer told a news conference on Nov. 17.

"What we found are business plans aimed at targets around the world based on influence peddling, including with people closely tied to foreign governments like China and Russia." The Bidens, Comer said, "flourished and became millionaires by simply offering access to 'The Family.'"

Press coverage of the investigation will likely fall into two categories. The first will focus on traditional coverage of what the committee discovers, what witnesses tell investigators, what documents are involved, etc. The second will ignore those developments or attack the investigation itself.

After all, it’s clearly possible that what these investigations reveal could put the Big Guy in an orange jumpsuit.



maoistcultureBari Weiss has just published the fifth installment in Elon Musk’s exposé about the rampant corruption in Twitter, clearly showing Twitter employees were Maoists waging a cultural revolution against President Trump and anyone who voted for him.

I’ll load Weiss’s tweets below, but here’s the quick summary:  On January 8, Trump loaded two tweets, with Twitter employees in charge of analyzing tweets concluded that Trump’s tweets had not violated any policy.

The zealots on Twitter’s bloated payroll (most of whom had graduated from America’s hard-left colleges), were adamant that Trump had violated the policy against incitement. As one employee stated in the company’s Slack channel, it was “pretty obvious he’s going to try to thread the needle of incitement without violating the rules.”

In other words, these proud products of America’s academic system firmly believed that they had to violate their own rules in order to prevent Trump from continuing not to violate their rules.

The Vandals Sack of Rome 455 AD

Are we sure that there is all that much ruin left in the United States?

We are $31 trillion in collective debt. The new normal is $1.5 trillion budget deficits. The military is politicized and short of recruits. We trade lethal terrorists for woke celebrity athletes as if to confirm our enemies’ cynical stereotypes.

Our FBI is corrupt and discredited, collaborating with Silicon Valley contractors to suppress free speech and warp elections.

The decrepitude of major blue state cities recalls the weedy forums and choked fountains of Vandal-era Roman cities, which is what happens when a later parasitic generation mocks but still consumes what it inherits but cannot create.



Bush and Gorbachev shake hands in Moscow on July 31, 1991

Bush and Gorbachev shake hands in Moscow on July 31, 1991

In August 1991, then-U.S. President George H.W. Bush was in Kyiv to counsel Ukrainians against statehood. Only weeks before Ukraine declared independence and only months before the Soviet Union was dissolved, Bush worried about the collapse of Soviet authority.

These leaders, for all their achievements managing the end of the Cold War, were on the wrong side of history on this fundamental question of self-determination for Moscow’s captive peoples. Luckily, Ukraine and the other former Soviet republics that are now independent did not listen.

Today, we are witnessing similar fears in Western capitals. With Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime in a downward spiral due to the Kremlin’s disastrous war against Ukraine, the Russian regime’s collapse and even Russia’s possible disintegration have become a major cause of concern. Here’s why it shouldn’t be.



creativity-anxietyWorry is essentially a response to things that are outside of our control. We worry about our kids, we worry about world events, we worry about the economy… and we worry about certain money troubles.

Shifting our focus from worry to facing the specific obstacles in our path can move us from worry to genuine peace of mind.

Think about something that you do well. Do you ever worry about it? Sure, you think about it, you prepare for it, you act on it.

But do you worry? Do you sit helplessly thinking about all the things that could go wrong, and how awful it would be if they did go wrong?  I doubt it. You probably just get to work.

Bolsonaro Pushes Back Against Election Fraud


Mainstream media is heavily censoring events going on right now in Brazil.

This HFR presents analysis and insight from personal contacts throughout Brazil, Peru, and El Salvador in the aftermath of the election fraud in Brazil. This HFR is a TTP exclusive; many thanks to friends who made it possible.

President Bolsonaro appears to be enacting a well-considered and aggressive plan to take down communist insurgents and Narcotics criminals throughout his country and others. Martial law is expected, and the outcome is no less than a battle for the world.

The same voting machine irregularities, along with late-night vote drops, turned the election from the popular Bolsonaro to the communist Lula in the same way as Americans have come to expect.

Only this time, Brazilians are standing up against corruption. There are still real men in Brazil.

The battle is joined. It's time to save the world.
