Thought for the day

"I contend that for a nation to try and tax itself into prosperity, is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." -- Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

Kanye West went off on Jared Kushner and his brother Josh during his interview with Tucker Carlson on Thursday and said they only arraigned the Abraham Accords "peace treaties" with Israel "to make money." 

"All these things with Israel ... I just think it was to make money," West told Carlson. "Is that too heavy-handed to put in this platform?"

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry on Tuesday posted a photograph of a box of "gold dental crowns" they claimed were extracted from Ukrainian victims in a "torture chamber" in Pisky-Radkivski they dubbed a "mini Auschwitz."

"A torture chamber in Pisky-Radkivski," the Ukrainian Defense Ministry tweeted. "2 photos. A gas mask that was put on the head of a victim who was covered with a smoldering rag and buried alive. And a box of gold dental crowns. A mini Auschwitz. How many more will be found in occupied Ukraine?"

The German media outlet BILD visited the town to investigate the story themselves and found that the crowns were actually taken from the village dentist.

"The teeth look like the ones from my cabinet, my house was looted by Russians," the dentist said. "They come from people that I treated all these years. I took these teeth out."

This photo was taken by Irish photographer Coleman Doyle. Original caption: "A female IRA volunteer on active service with an AR18 assault rifle in West Belfast". The IRA regularly holds "weapons demonstrations" showcasing its modern and numerous weapons.

The gun the girl is showing is an ArmaLite AR-18. It was acquired by the IRA from the US in the early 1970s and became an emotional symbol of the IRA armed campaign. IRA fighters named this gun "widow maker". The AR-18 rifle was found to be very well suited for the purposes of IRA fighters as its small size and folding stock meant it was easy to conceal.

This photo shows soldiers of the Eight-Nation Coalition in 1900, from left to right: Britain, United States, Australia, British India, Germany, France, Austria-Hungary, Italy, Japan. This was a British propaganda picture where the British requested heights to depict racial/ethnic supremacy.

The British requested an American to be slightly smaller than the British they were sending. However, the Americans sent someone taller than Britain. After all, the United States was a continent-sized nation while Britain was a small island. So the British used a bigger cap to pay more compensation.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky is calling for NATO to launch "preemptive strikes" on Russia "so that they know what awaits them if they use nuclear weapons."

"Preemptive strikes are needed so that they know what awaits them if they use nuclear weapons," Zelensky told the Lowy Institute on Thursday according to a translation from Interfax. "Not the other way around, waiting for Russia's nuclear strikes and then saying, 'oh, you've done that, then get this.'"

Zelensky has made many insane comments and has lied repeatedly to try and con NATO into launching World War III but calling for preemptive strikes on Russia to "prevent" a nuclear attack has to be his most insane comment yet.

Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer, David Scorpio, and I discuss current events to sharply discern objective reality fit for news from corporate media bullshit to herd sheeple: here on BitChute (censored on YouTube).


Professor Fetzer’s summary of today’s show:


We began with the assessment of the Russian Ambassador to the United States about the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines, which he suggested (and which has been subsequently confirmed) was done by the US as an act of war and a crime against humanity. It will now make it impossible for RF to supply Germany with natural gas, even under emergency conditions, which are going to prevail this winter and where the US wants to benefit economically by placing Europe in a squeeze: higher prices for LNS from the US (about 4X as expensive) or freeze in the winter. This was a crass and calculated action by the Biden administration. Among the responses by Russia has been to launch the world's largest submarine, which has the ability to sent out nuclear torpedoes (or "drones") that can set of enormous tsunamis that would send tidal waves over the coasts of target countries and soak them with radioactive water, making them uninhabitable for 250+ years! The consequences would be catastrophic. Others believe WWIII has already begun, where objective and rational minds will side with Russia, not the US/NATO. Nancy Pelosi says we need migrants to pick our fruit. The Anti-New York Times reports that it has become a badge of honor to vote against counting the votes from states where it was stolen. The Supreme Court has fallen in public esteem to its lowest level in history, which has (for me personally) been reinforced by its decision to deny my Petition for a Writ of Certiorari.


As a professional historian, I place current events in context of history. Given so much of our current challenges involve “Covid,” ongoing lie-started and treaty-violating illegal Wars of Aggressionbankster looting easily provable in the tens of trillions, and “official lying” in corporate media and public “education” “texts,” each new article on current events requires ongoing documentation of these historical contexts.


My best “shot” explains, documents, and proves that “Covid” + “vaccine” narratives are Crimes Against Humanity: a 4,700-word essay I sent to ~100 teacher colleagues in September, 2021 (received with silence to the facts, with ~20 eventual responses to be removed from such communications). My May 2022 essay to our teachers’ union Board is an excellent overview of the entire history, as is my June 14, 2022 retirement letter (2-hour overview discussion with Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer). Two excellent essays documenting Crimes Against Humanity with “Covid” “vaccines” here and here.


Want to learn more about false flags and conspiracies? For ~25 years I’ve learned from Professor Fetzer’s academic work; he offers 24 free video presentations from the False Flags and Conspiracies 2020 Virtual Conference. The 2021 False Flags and Conspiracies Conference is here


Here is my book if you’d like to learn more from me.


I’m at 95% certainty that White Hats are in control of AmRev 2.0, with the single best evidence being a 49-minute summary of Charlie Freak’s epic 7-hour presentation of verifiable facts.


Context: American Revolution 2.0 2020: PATRIOTS vs. LOYALISTS


I’m a professional historian with degrees from Berkeley and Harvard, helped craft and deliver ~300 policy briefs for Members of Congress on ending poverty that led to two UN Summits for heads of state, have written ~1,000 articles since 2009 with ~50 million page views that include published research, and was recognized by two Los Angeles Mayors as among the very best high school teachers among ~20,000 teachers in Central L.A. 


I also wrote a 2005 ~40-page White Paper circulated among Members of Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney for those lie-started Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression (200+ footnotes using our own government’s most authoritative official documents as slam-dunk proof of lies known to be lies as they were told, and the opposite of lawful military attack).


As a historian with 38 years’ teaching experience to the world’s most challenging audience (captured teenagers), I know that ordinary Americans don’t see the present clearly because We the People are CONSTANTLY lied to about the past and present by .01% political “leaders,” corporate media, and public “education” “texts.”  That is, Americans believe “official” sources because game-changing historical context is CONSTANTLY obfuscated by INTENTIONAL AND OBVIOUS LIES of omission and commission. These are not careless and/or non-consequential errors, but massive, game-changing, and inexcusable lies I document and prove beyond reasonable doubt. 


As an academic professional, I factually assert an Emperor’s New Clothes condition; an Orwellian reality that anyone who cares to lift their heads and look will see abundantly for themselves: the United States of America has been an ongoing illegal, looting, lying rogue state empire.


Because Americans are crippled by “official” disinformation, Patriot leaders must rise, stand, and teach objective, comprehensive, and independently-verifiable data that explain, document, and prove our .01% “leaders” are engaged in ongoing OBVIOUS CRIMES centered in war and money, with annual costs of killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.


Many of us are Oath-bound to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. All in the US military are trained to recognize and reject illegal orders, with officers trained to arrest anyone issuing obvious illegal orders. All of you learned in your high school US Government class that any so-called “law” in violation of the Constitution is void and without power.


My teaching experience has proven to me that ordinary teen-age humans want the truth, and almost all (~80%) will embrace it thankfully when effectively offered in objective reality. Importantly, family, friends, and colleagues will almost universally (~98%) reject the truth, no matter how effectively offered, and will not see the bullshit excuses they offer in profound cognitive dissonance. I therefore offer this article series only in confidence of the accuracy of its documented facts, and with no confidence how to successfully use these facts in ordinary life among family, friends, and colleagues. The rejecters never ever ever ever engage in factual and reasoned consideration, but resort to ad hominem, denial, and unexamined belief in “leaders.”


We Patriots communicate because Planet Earth and the United States are at war. 


The war is Patriots versus Psychopaths, Truth versus Lies, Virtue versus Evil. I use these labels as the most accurate I have as a professional academic, and provide abundant and game-changing evidence among hundreds in alternative media. After engaging with the data in this article series, I challenge you to accurately frame this war in any other way.


Please read the above sentence one more time. 


Challenge accepted??? 


This American Revolution 2.0 is now in endgame: We the People are being forced to choose a side that will determine the victor for the planet. The outcome will either be an awakened and free people enjoying unimaginable hidden technology and a world that works for everyone with no-one left out OR masked slavery of “non-essentials” to be shot (“vaccinated”), chipped, and eventually culled to serviceable numbers for psychopaths to control and parasitize as sheeple-slaves.


This 9-part article series will engage “Socrates” in interviews for his experience of enduring a 27-year civil war caused by his society’s rhetoric of freedom contrasted with his government’s hypocritical gangster empire. Even after been proved correct of his government’s OBVIOUS hypocrisy, Socrates could still not be heard, was tried for “corrupting the young” and “dishonoring the Gods,” and overwhelmingly voted by the public for execution rather than endure his voice.


Historians look to the future as much as the past. I research and document important slivers of history as best one can discern in the present to a relatively few Patriot colleagues, and with eyes for future generations placing the past in the context they will have: building Heaven on Earth as best All can imagine. 


Our series (*links added at end of each of the 9 points*): 

  1. Introduction: we really live in American Revolution 2.0 2020 under life and death consequences. (1 of 9 here)
  2. The US has been a lying, looting, illegal rogue state empire committing Wars of Aggression for over 200 years and counting. These invading Wars of Aggression have war-murdered ~30 million since WW2 and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men (and here). The wars are for resource control: natural and human. (*new article here*)
  3. Ongoing Bankster looting now has a global 1% owning more assets than the 99%. Our economic system is based on the criminal fraud that debt = money, an Orwellian-inversion of total evil. Leading Americans have pointed to public banking and monetary reform for nearly 300 years as obvious solutions to being looted annually in the trillions. (3 of 9 here)
  4. Corporate media and public education intentionally lie to literally “cover” these crimes centered in war and money to control global resources (natural and human). As a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, US History, World History, Economics, and also credentialed in Mathematics, I prove beyond any reasonable doubt that Americans have been massively, ongoingly, and criminally lied to. These are not careless and inconsequential errors, but intentional and game-changing lies of omission and commission. (4 of 9 here)
  5. The .01% evil imperialists assassinate real leaders who oppose them: President Kennedy, Robert Kennedy (who would have been President in 1968), Dr. King, and hundreds of others are proven by overwhelming evidence, including the King Family civil trial whose jury found the US government guilty of assassinating Martin. These assassinations continue to the present, including 2020 State of the Union film evidence (explore SOTU videos here and here at 36:30) of Democratic “leaders” and Vice President Pence planning to assassinate President Trump according to plausible  lip-reading from a professional. (5 of 9 here)
  6. The Covid “plandemic” has dozens of verifiable “official” lies and hypocrisies for Orwellian-illegal policies that any American should instantly reject while calling for independent factual explanations. Most Americans sense this; I account for some of this data (herehere). (6 of 9 here)
  7. Our .01% “leaders” engage in child trafficking. Independent journalists and researchers have compiled powerful documentaries to provide context to arrests of Epstein, Maxwell, and conviction of Weinstein (Fall Cabal and Out of Shadows documentaries herehere, and here with further documentaries. Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer’s 2-hour presentation on Pizza-gate here). (7 of 9 here)
  8. Q is a White House insider proven by coordination in timing and language between Q posts and Trump Tweets. Q has revealed Democratic and corporate media “leaderships” lies and crimes to remove President Trump, install dictatorial plandemic government, and hide crimes against children. (8 of 9 here)
  9. The most important historical context for human beings to embrace: Earth has had ancient advanced technological civilizations from ET involvement that seem to be the genesis of our current evil-bloodline .01% empire-class. That is, the war in the present is a continuation of evil alien invasion from the past: I challenge you to see the evidence for yourself and see if you have a more accurate conclusion. (9 of 9 here)



I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History (also credentialed in Mathematics), with all economic factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences (and here). I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.

The Biden regime is buying up $290 million in anti-radiation drugs for use in "nuclear emergencies" amid escalating tensions with Russia and heightened threats of a nuclear war.

The Biden regime tried to make a secret deal with OPEC+ to buy 200 million barrels of oil at $80 a barrel in exchange for not cutting production but got humiliatingly rebuffed, CNN reports.

The White House was apparently "having a spasm and panicking" over the potential production cut ahead of Wednesday's announcement.

I guess all that moral preening directed at the Saudis over Khashoggi's murder wasn't the best idea.

No one wants to be lectured about "human rights" by a regime that tortures and jails its own political opposition.

Lester "Benny" Binion was a sick, uneducated child who grew up to be a convicted murderer, yet by 1951, he had established himself in the budding gambling city of Las Vegas, where he opened a casino, brimming with gangsters Learned the art of gimmicks, by hobby, and did not pay his taxes. His casino helped turn Fremont Street into a glitter gulch and set the stage for the grand game hall to come.

In a photograph that somehow contains both tenderness and horror, a US Marine carries a dead infant pulled from under a cliff while soldiers remove Japanese fighters and civilians from the Saipan caves in the summer of 1944.

The child was the only person found alive among hundreds of corpses in a cave. The battle for the Pacific island of Saipan during World War II is one of those well-remembered battles between Japan and the US, made worse by the mass suicides of local Japanese civilians who jumped off cliffs, by the Americans. for fear of being captured.

This photo was taken during the Battle of Saipan, in which 22,000 Japanese civilians lost their lives - many by suicide - and almost all 30,000 Japanese soldiers on the island. Of the 71,000 American soldiers who landed on Saipan, 3,426 were killed, while more than 13,000 were wounded.

The soldier is naked as he was probably ordered to strip to ensure that no weapons or explosives were concealed. It was very rare for Japanese soldiers to surrender because it was considered humiliating. Those huge steel doors, and thick walls, must be some kind of bunker. Maybe a bunker with an artillery gun, maybe a coastal battery.

The Marshall Islands were in Japanese hands since World War I. Occupied by the Japanese in 1914, they were made part of the "Japanese Mandatory Islands" determined by the League of Nations. The Japanese withdrew from the Union in 1933 and began turning the Mandatory Islands into military bases.

This picture is taken during the Bangladesh Liberation War. Little is known to the western countries about the atrocities of this war. It lasted for a period of nine months and witnessed massive atrocities. At the same time, cholera also spread during this period. As a result of this war Bangladesh became an independent state from West Pakistan, which is now just Pakistan.

Looking at the photo, one can see the love right there. It is a vision of determination. It says a lot about their love. The photographer is Mark Edwards and he later recalled: "I took this very disturbing picture of a man carrying his cholera-stricken wife during the Bangladesh War in 1971. Ten million to escape the horrors of this bloody People crossed the border of East Pakistan into India. War".

Victor Bulla's photo of hundreds of children wearing gas masks was not meant to be a slur, a comment on war or lost innocence, but an example of pride – a nation full of well-trained, well-equipped and clearly courageous young fighters was awarded. ,

The picture dates back to 1937, four years before the Siege of Leningrad, and makes the strangeness vivid and poignant. Many children here would have died in sieges, or lived through it in the Civil Defense Force, eating wallpaper paste and digging trenches. However how brave and ready he must have felt in 1937.

Germany was a prosperous country before World War I, with a gold-backed currency, expanding industry, and world leadership in optics, chemicals, and machinery. The German mark, British shilling, French franc, and Italian lira all had roughly the same value, and were all exchanged for four or five dollars. That was in 1914.

In 1923, at the most tumultuous moment of German hyperinflation, the exchange rate between the dollar and the mark was one trillion marks to one dollar, and a wheelbarrow full of money wouldn't even buy a newspaper. Most Germans were surprised by the financial whirlwind. The meaning of currency was lost.

In January 1923, France and Belgium invaded the Ruhr, an industrial area in Germany bordering their own countries. The annexation of the Ruhr was in response to the failure of the Weimar Republic to continue with its reparation payments in the aftermath of World War I.

The region, full of factories and coal mines, contained resources that the French and Belgians used for unpaid repairs.

Posted on: Oct 05 15:20

After World War I, Germany was hit by one of the worst cases of hyperinflation in recent history. The German mark fell from 4.2 points to 8.91 points per dollar during World War I, but by the end of 1923, paying war reparations raised the exchange rate to 4,200,000,000,000 marks per dollar.

Human-lifting kites are specially designed kites that can lift humans. Back in the days, when airplanes and helicopters were pure fantasy, these human-lifting kites were the closest he could ever dream of flying.

Originally, kites were used for pleasure and entertainment, and later for aerial reconnaissance on the battlefield.

Claire Wardle, a Brown University professor and member of the WEF, expressed her frustration that the First Amendment allows people to legally speak freely, even if they express views that conflict with the official narrative.

She argued during a World Economic Forum panel discussion that the lack of limitations on free speech is to blame for “misinformation” spreading online because it is not illegal.

Wardle suggested that it may be necessary to change free speech laws to prevent “low-level” or “hateful” information from being repeated.
