Played golf today in Fort Myers

with a guy from Winnipeg.

Fun round.

Thinks Alberta should leave Canada. Hates Turdeau. Hates the carbon tax.

Smart guy. Bought a place in Fort Myers December 1 last year AFTER the hurricane. Got a great deal on a home that weathered the storm well.

December Greetings!

Speaking of December, I just got a taste of what’s ahead this month, at least in colder northern regions around the world. The photos at this link tell the story:

Today, the adventure continues as I drive to Georgia, or at least to the border.

It’s time to get ready for winter!

DHS (quietly) deletes video urging Americans to report Covid misinformation from family members.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s cybersecurity agency is burying evidence of its prior efforts to encourage the domestic censorship of US citizens online, silently deleting a dystopian video it published in 2021 instructing children to report their own family members to Facebook for “Covid disinformation.”


Here’s the video. ‘Report Uncle Steve for disinformation.’

News from the trenches

Pleasanton, California is an upscale city in my neck of the woods.
This is a post from the local “Nextdoor” forum. It gets revenue from letting local businesses advertise, and residents benefit from it.
Nextdoor is listed under the stock symbol KIND.


Today I was at Safeway and I was behind a lady who was probably in her 80s. She was counting out her change to pay for the six items that she was purchasing. I offered to help her out with a $5.00 but she wouldn’t hear of it. She said if she didn’t have the money she would put something back. She ended putting back a can of beans. I purchased my two items and followed her out the store. I asked her if she needed help and she said no, she could manage but then she went on and said that she had received her social security notice for next year and she was actually losing money next year. It was only $15.00 a month but she says every penny counts. She went on to say that she was fortunate that her mortgage was less than $400.00 a month. She had hoped to have her mortgage paid off but with medical bills before her husband passed away made her refinance. She said she has lived in Pleasanton 40 years. She believes that our city is trying to move out anyone on a fixed income. The school bond was the beginning and now the water increase and soon utilities, etc. This is what many of our seniors are dealing with.

I am fortunate to have a pension and will be able to handle the increases for now. But many seniors are struggling and the costs just keep going up. Water rates going up 30%, soon PG&E rates will be going up also. The school bond increased our property taxes this year. And yes the school needed help, but the bond should have been cut back. They hadn’t even finished all the projects from the last bond. Oh and the next senior that says but our property values will drop – ask yourself this – are you planning on selling. If not, don’t worry about it. There has to be a way to look at all the costs when proposing rate increases, bond measures etc. and what these increases will do to the citizens of Pleasanton.



Time To Boycott Elon’s Boycotters

It was about four years ago that ZeroHedge went through ad monetization hell, having lost most of our advertisers because they did not approve of the content on this website and as a result they – together with such members of the Censorship Industrial Complex such as Newsguard, Sleeping Giants and CheckMyAds and various three letter US government agencies – did everything in their power to kill the site by starving it of ad revenue (it’s what prompted us to launch a premium, subscription-supported version without which we would not have survived, and therefore we wish to personally thank all of our premium subscribers).

The problem, as Musk laid out, is that while X can sustain without ad revenue for a long time, a complete ad boycott will likely eventually kill X as Musk is unlikely to shoulder the burden of its costs and expenses out of his own pocket indefinitely, and as a result, “what the advertising boycott is going to do is it’s going to kill the company.”

So yes, the only way that corporate management teams will ever stop weaponizing ad dollars – especially if it means losing access to one of the wealthiest audiences, such as that of Zerohedge, or one of the most engaged readership bases such as that of X, is if their shareholders lose enough money and force management to either change or be fired.

Which is why it is time to boycott the boycotters: below we have summarized the names of those companies which have publicly signaled their “virtue” by pulling their ads from X/Musk.

France on brink of civil war over Muslims.

Two years ago, after yet another couple of nights of rioting in the banlieues, twenty retired French generals wrote an open letter to Emmanuel Macron, then about to run for a second term, warning that the divisions between communities and increasing “violence and nihilism” in France would eventually cause a social breakdown, with a risk of “chaos” leading to a “civil war” that would then “require” a military “intervention… in a dangerous mission to protect our civilisational values and safeguard our compatriots”.

Strong stuff, co-signed by some 100 senior officers and about a thousand other members of the military, in a country where the Army is known as “the Great Mute”, i.e. never expressing a preference in national politics.

Yet this week Olivier Véran, the cabinet spokesman, seemed to share those conclusions as, on a visit to the village of Crépol, south of Lyon, he warned that France might be at a “tipping point” after the fatal stabbing of a local 16 year-old boy.

Man, some great revealing posts today

Jack Smith’s metadata

“Essentially, turning Donald J Trump into the center of a surveillance virus.

People then say how could the Jack Smith special counsel possibly comb through all of those users and all of that connected metadata. The answer is Artificial Intelligence; but the serious concern comes when you combine the metadata, AI organization and the previous announcements from DHS.”

Now do you see my point about how radical and fast everything is going to change?
It’s the 2024 election targeting.

New Zealand Database Administrator Who Designed System For “Providers” To Get Paid Per Shot Given, Crosses Ranks And Joins Opposition: Tearfully Confesses To Liz Gunn STAGGERINGLY High Death Counts

“This Data Is A River Of Tears,” He Says. Calls Data “impossible” for NZ Government to Deny. It’s their own data.

A database administrator in New Zealand has given NZ politician, journalist, and attorney Liz Gunn a data leak about deaths following Covid shots in New Zealand that shows what she calls “eye watering” death counts, in some cases over 30% of the injected at a given site died. “This data is a river of tears, and I can’t go on with it,” the man, occasionally breaking down, and seeming to show signs of PTSD, tells Gunn:

“It has to stop now.” He says his data is “…impossible to deny” as it is hard, government data, of 2.2 million people in New Zealand who were injected.


There’s Bombshells going off all over the World…This is a BIG one




The vegan diet is a scam. Born of a cult and fueled by false virtue, its purported benefits stem from lies and propaganda designed to physically weaken the human population by depriving it of the healthiest and nutrient-rich sources of fat and protein, necessary for the generation and maintenance of muscle, nerves, and brain tissue. There is no substitute in the plant world. And now we’ve discovered that meat and milk kill cancer cells.

A strong case can be made that the death toll from vaccines exceeds the number of people killed by Hitler, Stalin, or Mao.

From Toby Rogers Substack

The Black Book of Vaccination

There is compelling evidence that:

…The 1918 Spanish flu epidemic was caused by an experimental bacterial meningitis vaccine injected into soldiers at Fort Riley, Kansas. 50 million dead.

…HIV made the leap from animals to humans via contamination of the early oral polio vaccine. 40 million dead.

…RSV made the leap from animals to humans via contamination of the polio vaccine. 60,000 deaths annually.

…SV40 is a carcinogen that was injected into 100 million Americans via the polio vaccine. As cancer rates skyrocket, the total death toll is unknown.

…Lyme Disease was created by U.S. bioweapons research in the 1970s. There are now 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease every year in the U.S.

…SARS-CoV-2 was created by U.S.-funded gain-of-function research. Seven million dead with/from/adjacent to Covid with many million more killed by Covid shots.

UAE officially stops using dollar for oil trades

This strategic pivot aligns with the broader ambitions of the BRICS economic alliance, of which the UAE is a recent addition. The changeover, involving the transition to local currencies for oil transactions, marks a significant departure from the long-established dollar dominance in the global oil market.

Bottomline is the UAE’s decision to transition from the US dollar to local currencies in its oil trades is a bold and strategic move that reflects the changing dynamics of the global economic landscape.

The indictment for the brazen murder-for-hire plot brings more heat onto India for its alleged transnational assassination program.

ON WEDNESDAY, the Justice Department announced it had filed charges against a man allegedly working for the Indian government to orchestrate the assassination of a U.S. citizen earlier this year. An Indian government official allegedly instructed Nikhil Gupta, an Indian national, to coordinate the murder of a Sikh separatist living in New York.

Typical WSOP Hit Job

I have followed articles by the Martell’s WSOP for at least a decade. First, I commend them for being one of the few investigative journalists left and focusing on taking on big banks and Wall Street brokers. The reason a lot of that work gets diminished, is their total left leaning political bias. A perfecct example is this piece about the GS Apple joint venture. As they point out below, the problem was from the Apple store employee doing what most companies do, incentivizing sales but not supervising the process to prevent fraud. I am sure GS had their faults in the failure of this venture also, but as usual the Martell’s ALWAYS attack the financial, Wall Street firm as oppossed to objectively criticizing Apple’s failings, as well. They will report and criticize both parties politicians, but they are so biased in their attacks on all republicans and their financial supporters. When they do report on a criticism of dems, they rarely call out their financial backers, especially if they are the usual dem financial sources and powerbrokers. True investigative reporters should not be almost as bad as the MSM. They provide very good insight on stories that don’t get much, if any, coverage elsewhere, but it has been clear over the years I have read them, that they hate every GOP politician and financial backer.

Is Your Money Safe? Within A Year, Millions May Lose Their Savings Due To AI Threat, Warns Cybercrime Expert

Artificial intelligence is advancing at lightning speed, and these advances are not only set to reshape our very reality, they could leave many losing all of their savings, according to cybercrime expert Marc Maisch, who also works as a lawyer helping victims reclaim their lost savings after they fall victim on the web.

He warned in an interview with Germany’s Die Welt newspaper that authorities will be powerless to stop this new coming crime wave, which will see criminals use AI tools to fleece potentially millions out of their money.

“AI is a great tool, but of course cybercriminals also use it to create phishing emails in order to have ChatGPT write malicious code that can be used immediately. And we haven’t yet talked about deepfakes and voice phishing, i.e., faces and voices are recreated. We are currently seeing the start of a revolutionary development in cybercrime. Next year, the year after that, this will have reached a whole new level,”

Possible Short Term Gold Target

The gold chart suggests a possible short term temporary gold top around 2100+ between today and middle of next week. If 2100 is reached lots of headlines and commentary would be generated. That would be a logical place for a temporary top and pullback that could last anywhere from a few days or as long as until year end. Much, much higher prices in 2024.

Russia Takes Control Of Iraq’s Biggest Oil Discovery For 20 Years

Preliminary estimates suggested that Iraq’s Eridu oil field holds between 7-10 billion barrels of reserves…..that’s B as in Billion

  • The Eridu field is the biggest oil find in Iraq in the last 20 years.
  • March saw Iraq’s state-owned Dhi Qar Oil Company (DQOC) formally approve the development of Block 10’s reserves, including for the whole Eridu field.
  • Inpex’ decision to sell its 40 percent stake in the Block 10 region that contains the huge Eridu discovery leaves the way clear for Lukoil to take total control of the entire oil-rich area.

The White House Goes Rogue: Secret Surveillance Program Breaks All The Laws

The government wants us to believe that we have nothing to fear from its mass spying programs as long as we’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t believe it. It doesn’t matter whether you obey every law. The government’s definition of a “bad” guy is extraordinarily broad, and it results in the warrantless surveillance of innocent, law-abiding Americans on a staggering scale.

For instance, it was recently revealed that the White House, relying on a set of privacy loopholes, has been sidestepping the Fourth Amendment by paying AT&T to allow federal, state, and local law enforcement to access—without a warrant—the phone records of Americans who are not suspected of a crime. This is how the government routinely breaks the law and gets away with it: in the so-called name of national security.

The Fourth Amendment was intended to serve as a protective forcefield around our persons, our property, our activities, our communications and our movements. It keeps the government out of our private business except in certain, extenuating circumstances.

what we really need is a government that respects the rights of the citizenry and obeys the law.
