Punting Ilhan, Biden's Boom & 99 Luft Balloons...
Fairly light week news wise, which was a pleasure and allowed me and my better half the window to flee to Florida to escape the frigid ‘Bomb Cyclone’ and the ravages of #ClimateChange (a beautiful term, which encompasses all scenarios except the climate remaining exactly the same - an event which has never happened in the planet’s history).
So here’s my take on the week. Make sure to hit the Cheat Sheet if you’re in a rush (or Cliffs Notes if you’re over the age of 40) for the simple, brief take on what’s happening distilled into a few sentences each. I do the work, so you don’t have to.
I can even simplify the sheet.
If you hear the three ‘Cs’ aka CBDCs, Climate Change or Covid - the appropriate response is 'no thank you’. If you’re from New York, it’s ‘GFY’.
These rosy terms are the backbone of the Great Reset or Build Back Better or any of the other euphemisms employed to make bondage chains more digestible to the average person. But their real purpose is to fuel a dystopian digital slavery state giving the government and bad quasi-state actors (corporations, NGOs etc) broad control over your life, liberty and happiness. Like Nancy Reagan said back in the day, “Just say ‘NO’.”
The only thing standing in the way of this nightmare are American patriots and our glorious 2nd Amendment. Cuck states like Australia, England, Venezuela and others who disarmed their populations found out quickly that the statement, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help” is a literal death sentence these days.
There are no communist success stories. Just mass graves and generations too lazy and ignorant to study history that want to repeat past mistakes.
Chinese Weather Balloons.
File this one under Head Scratchers. A Chinese surveillance ‘balloon’ has been spotted traveling across the continental U.S. The brouhaha has caused US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to put off his upcoming trip to Beijing and has added a new layer of tension between the two countries.
The US said it chose not to destroy the balloon for fear of hurting people on the ground, and because it’s unlikely to provide Beijing anything it can’t get from satellites. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where either of these explanations are remotely true. Montana is sparsely inhabited (except of course for the thousands of nuclear silos the balloon is hovering over), and whether or not the surveillance or payload delivering vehicle can offer the Chinese anything new, it’s still an invasion of our sovereign airspace by a hostile power.
I don’t want to ascribe any worse case scenarios, but this could easily be a tracking run for a ballon carrying an actual weapons payload, be it an EMP, nuclear device, or bioweapon.
Do I think any of these are happening? Probably not. But any nation that let’s a nation we are at war with (yes, we are at war with China….5G informational warfare, biowarfare (i.e, Covid), and Techno-Supremacy Warfare (AI and the future of humanity) and potential kinetic war over Taiwan occupy our airspace without permission is telegraphing extreme weakness. It’s baffling how this was allowed to come anywhere near US airspace much less that our woke military generals are allowing it to prance across the nation.
The New York Times had this choice quote, “One Pentagon official described shock at what officials viewed as a blatant, and poorly concealed effort, at spying. A White House official called the move “audacious.”
Well, your enemies can afford to be audacious when you have a track record of fecklessness with a brain-dead corpse running the nation. We’ve got a military more concerned about keeping Trannies happy and lowering standards for recruits because we now have a shortage due to the devastating decision to discharge any soldier brave or smart enough to refuse the Vax.
I wouldn’t worry though. The Chinese assured Sleepy Joe and General Milley that it's just a normal anti-racist friendship balloon which we can't criticize because then we'd be racist.
As Jesse Kelley presciently remarks about the Woke Madness our current military exhibits, “We’re going to lose a war one day.” No doubt.
The world is laughing, and bad actors continue to celebrate the decline of American competence and power.
PS: I’ll be honest though, I’m a helluva lot less concerned about spy balloons and Tik-Tok surveillance by the Chinese than I am by the war declaration by my own government and weaponization of law enforcement and the administrative state against the American people. It’s not Chinese prisons that thousands of Americans are rotting away in, deprived of their due process and human rights.
MRNA & Fertility
Every week The Truth continues to bleed out (sorry). In this case, more devastating evidence that the experimental MRNA injections have a harmful effect on women’s fertility and menstrual cycles. I’ve already posted numerous times one of the more frightening infographics out there detailing the massive rise in miscarriages and stillborns since the rollout of these experimental shots.
And remember, these are VAERS reports which are underreported based on statistical analysis somewhere by a factor of 10-40x.
Now, more whistleblower videos from PfizerGate and the resurfacing of censored Japanese and German studies performed in 2021 show that the vaccine negatively affects both female and male fertility.
In 2021, the Japanese found the spike protein and lipid nanoparticles tended to concentrate the heaviest in ovaries and testes in an early bio distribution study. The study was heavily censored by the media and administration like most studies that showed cause for concern from the start.
Naomi Wolf also loudly voiced concerns about the Vax’s impact on fertility and for her courage, she was banned from Twitter before Elon liberated the platform.
Here’s a good video with Wolf and Igor Chudov discussing the drop in fertility rates back in October 2022.
Remember, the MRNA vaccines were NEVER tested on pregnant women. Despite this gross error, doctors, public health officials, journalists and influencers had no problem saying ‘of course’ the vaccine was safe for pregnant women (or those trying to conceive). These are the same people who would tell you to NEVER eat sushi or have a single glass of wine while you’re pregnant…but go ahead and inject an experimental toxin into your body with no long term studies. [face f’n palm]
One of my maxims is that you should never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity. But there's been an awful lot of ‘stupidity’ the last few years…

No College Mandates
If you missed my, ‘End the College Mandates’ midweek update last week, please read the following article. If you have children attending college or considering attending college in the near future, it’s the most important article you will read this year.
On the bright side, House Republicans dropkicked anti-semite Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
It’s hard to grasp a world in which an America-hating, terrorist-loving anti-semite was serving on this Committee in the first place, but hey, that’s the sad state of politics these days.
Either way, this was a solid first step in her eventual impeachment, prosecution and deportation. The only thing that made it sweeter was AOC ‘whooping’ to the crowd about the loss of her sister and blaming it all on….you guess it, racism!
Around the Horn: A Brief Take on Other Stories Out There
Politician Executed - Is the U.S. cold war turning hot? In an execution style murder, GOP NJ councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour was gunned down outside her home.
My gut tells me two things. It’s almost certainly not a ‘political hit’, unlike the Steve Scalise mass shooting where a deranged Leftist (I know, repetitive) tried to kill half the GOP Softball Team.
If I had to guess, Dwumfour either wronged people in a financial deal and this was payback or her husband is the perp. As a cop friend told me many years ago and was some of the best sensemaking advice I’ve ever been given, “It’s always the husband.” He didn’t mean literally ‘always’, but that in the overwhelming majority of murder cases, look to the spouse first and foremost. I’m guessing it’s one of the above.
Another RussiaGate Postmortem - After an 18 month investigation, liberal watchdog Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) excoriated the mainstream media for their biased and false coverage of the Russiagate Scandal (you mean ‘hoax).
As the Washington Times put it, The CJR “delivered a major black eye to The New York Times and other Pulitzer Prize winners for their stories about the Trump-Russia saga, finding “serious flaws” in their coverage and no acknowledgment that the accusations of collusion with Moscow were never substantiated.
Journalist Jeff Gerth, a former New York Times reporter, said his investigation found that news organizations didn’t follow their own rules for using anonymous sources and refused to be transparent about their work in attempting to prove links between the Trump campaign in 2016 and Russia.”
This was a concerted effort by Washington insiders, Deep State henchmen and a willing media to overthrow a sitting U.S. President. It was a soft coup for which no one has paid a price. Hopefully, that changes one day….for the sake of our country, and justice.
Biden’s Laptop from Hell - While admitting that, in fact, the “laptop from hell” belonged to their client, lawyers for Hunter Biden are now claiming that it was criminal to “weaponize” its contents.
Particularly irking Team-Hunter Biden is the extraordinarily effective work of Garrett Ziegler of the Marco Polo nonprofit research group which continue to expose Hunter’s laptop contents. Ziegler has posted a searchable database of all of the laptop material and published a substantial report explaining who all the major actors are and their various political and business enterprises. Biden’s lawyers have sent threatening messages to Ziegler and lobbied to remove Marco Polo’s 501(c)(3) status.
Here’s a 6 min video worth watching explaining who the players are.
Golf Caddy Collapses - For those that missed it, a caddy pulled a ‘Damar’ and collapsed during the second round of the PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Friday and received CPR before being taken to a nearby hospital.
I’ve watched football for over 45 years and I’ve never seen a player collapse like Damar on the field.
I’ve watched golf for 40 years and I’ve never seen a caddie collapse.
One is a coincidence. Two is a trend. The next televised casualty will make it impossible to put the genie back in the bottle.
Speaking of Damar, did we ever find out what caused him to collapse on the field?
It’s now been over a month since his incident. Why hasn’t he done a live interview? People initially speculated because he was in much worse shape than indicated and probably couldn’t speak. But his latest heavily-edited video shows no speech problems or other physical issues. So why no interviews?
As I wrote several weeks ago, if a nobody makes a viral video on Tik-Tok, they invite him to appear on the Today Show. But not a world famous athlete who suffered one of the most notable injuries in sports history and that everyone (including the fans who donated $10M to his charity) would love to hear from?
Please make it make sense.
More young, healthy athletes have collapsed in the last year than the previous 50 years combined. But as well all know, it’s not, ‘The Thing’. In fact, it’s anything but…The Thing.
Color Me Bearish
Not the buckle up and batten the hatches ‘bearish’ that I was in 2008, beginning of 2020 or November 2021, but nevertheless, the risk-reward for the overall market doesn’t seem like a great bet here.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t individual stocks, companies, deals or other money making opportunities out there. It just means the S&P and other indices are pricing in a lot of good news in the coming year and it may not materialize as market participants are betting.
In plain English, the market has gotten ahead of itself, and there’s still plenty that can go wrong.
In the theoretical world, it’s a given that intervention by the Fed and other ‘wise men’ can ‘fix’ a broken economy. In reality, the economy cant be centrally managed and therefore any attempt to fix, is not only likely to be unsuccessful, but inevitably lead to greater damage. After all, it was wise men sitting in a private room trying to ‘fix’ the economy that led to much of the financial and economic mess we currently find ourselves in.
Free markets and capitalism (even the bastardized crony version we have) is so far superior and resilient compared to anything else out there, that it’s a miracle we’ve managed to navigate the many tailwinds we’re facing with the constant intervention by elected and unelected actors.
One final point to remember on the economic front. Even if inflation drops 2% this year, we’re still up 40% (or more) over the last 2 years. Inflation at minus 2% doesn’t mean prices return to their levels 2 years ago in the PB Age (Pre-Biden). It simply means prices are up ‘only’ 38% over the past 2 years, and the consumer is still struggling in this post-Trump world of high inflation, low to no growth. We used to have a name for that when I was growing up - stagflation.
Democratic activists and Biden loyalists were quick to trumpet Friday’s number of 517K new jobs added to payrolls as some type of #BidenBoom the country and economy is experiencing due to the President’s policies (or at least his puppetmaster).
While this is laughable propaganda to anyone paying attention to the actual economy, this gaslighting was astroturfed across Regime media to try to convince the average person bleeding from their eyeballs from record high inflation and zero economic growth that somehow our brain dead Puppet-in-Chief has captained the economy back to the glory days of heady economic growth we saw under President Trump.
Biden glowingly congratulated himself for the lowest unemployment in 50 years and media sycophants fawned that he’ll have the ‘wind in his sails’ for his second State of the Union address this Tuesday. The ‘50 years’ claim is false - but the headline number of 3.5% certainly looks good when you play games with the denominator in that equation by removing the millions of people no longer looking for work and/or disabled from government Covid policies.
As my tweet below sums up, the #BidenBoom is a make-believe bedtime story sold to the same gullible minds that think a 40 year old MRNA technology that had never successfully worked in prior trials was suddenly ‘fixed’ in 9 months to the point where 4 separate pharmaceutical companies developed viable vaccine candidates 10x faster than any vaccine had been developed and brought to market in history. Lord of the Rings is a more believable fairytale than that nonsense.
Cheat Sheet / Cliffs Notes
I spend dozens of hours digging in each week so you don't have to. If you woke up from a coma today, here’s what you’d need to know:
Covid: Masks don't work. Never have.
The MRNA ‘Vaccines’: Terrible risk/reward. Awful safety profile and negative efficacy.
In laymen's terms - the more shots you have the weaker your immune system. That's why we're seeing negative efficacy across the board, i.e., you're more likely to be infected or hospitalized if you've received the experimental MRNA shots (it's embarrassing to call it a ‘vaccine’ at this stage).
All of this has been true and verifiable from early 2021. The red flags were there even earlier.
ClimateChange: It's nonsense. The planet is not warming, it's cyclical. And if it is, it's unlikely to have been caused by man. If it has, there's very little that can be done about it intelligently without destroying the livelihoods of billions. There's no way we can produce the materials to hit Net Zero or any of the other targets. The grid isn't even close to being able to handle a 20x increase in electric vehicles (even if the lithium and other rare metals were available...which they're not).
You're already seeing record energy bills across the board. I suggest you lock in a rate if possible for the next few years, even at these high prices as states and providers will be raising rates across the board continuously for the next few years. People are losing their homes in the UK and elsewhere bc they can't keep up with the rapidly rising rates produced by the #ClimateScam lobbyists and the foolish, self-induced conflict in the Ukraine.
Permissioned CBDCs: The final piece of the puzzle. Control the money, control the population. CBDCs allow the government to entirely control how, where, when and on what you spend your money. In no scenario should any human submit to this kind of control, especially with governments that have exhibited the type of incompetence and malice we’ve seen over the last few years.
Ukraine: Russia is winning and will likely win unless there’s a negotiated settlement. Ignore the propaganda of 'almost out of weapons', losing all the battles etc. If that was the case, would we really be constantly upgrading the number and types of weapons we are giving the Ukrainians? Now we are sending tanks which not that long ago was off the table and the start of 'World War 3" as described by our own Demented Puppet President.
Markets: No one knows. Markets climb a wall of worry, but the advance now is built on a lot of hopium. There are only a few scenarios where we can head back to or through all time highs. Namely, 3 things have to happen.
1. Inflation is the big one - it has to retreat steadily and aggressively back to levels lower levels…and stay there.
2. War in Ukraine negotiated settlement.
3. Republicans in Congress browbeat Democrats to accept a return to Trump energy independence polices featuring easy permitting and protection for the next 10 years to make drilling and expansion feasible and economically productive.
If we get all 3, this rally is justified. If we don't, look for a choppy rollercoaster market bouncing between 3500-4300 this year.
Those are the 3 big 'issues' out there. Unless things on the ground change drastically, that's all you need to know right now.
