2023·01·21 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

Joining The Herd Of Lemmings

I’ve had cause to consider a few things. Maybe we’re going about it the wrong way, and we need to ditch Trump

Yeah, NO

Trump all the way! Why? Because being hated by the people who hate him is a sign of impeccable character, that’s why.

The haters can go fuck themselves with rusty twelve gauge bore brushes. I’d prefer ten gauge but that’s kind of scarce, so…I’m willing to compromise.

The RINO’s Dilemma

The RINOs who who have burrowed in and taken over most GOP organizations, from the state down to local organizations, have quite a dilemma on their hands, and most of them have their heads too far up their asses to realize it.

OK, I’m not talking about the liberal in a Republican area, who knows they’re in the wrong party, but is there because it’s the only game in their town; they hope to capture a nomination someday, at which point they’re guaranteed to be elected…otherwise, they never will be. These people are a hazard in any heavily conservative area.

No, I’m talking about the guys who are a little bit conservative and want to do some good by going into politics, and they’re in a closely matched area, closely enough that they can join the party they are most aligned with and still have a chance. They think the Democrats…particularly the ones who end up running for office…are nuts.

They don’t think much better of the Deplorable types, either. A bunch of bumpkins whose hearts are in the right place, mostly…OK a bit extreme. But they think Deplorables can’t understand that first you have to get elected, then work within the system to change things…a slow process. They genuinely want many of the things Deplorables want…just not as much. The government is spending too much. Or they need to spend money on highways instead of welfare for illegal immigrants. But they want to work within the system to get these things done.

Or maybe they think things are pretty close to ideal right now, and they want to nail it in place.

The problem is, that means they don’t stand for anything in particular. And it shows. They’re about as unappetizing to the electorate as a puddle of dog vomit. The folks in the middle, who they think they are appealing to because they themselves are not extreme, would honestly prefer a clear-spoken radical to someone who qualifies everything they say to the point where they sound like they don’t believe anything at all.

The problem these “Mild RINOs” have, is they just can’t see that. And the reason they just can’t see that, is their entire sense of self-worth is tied up in not seeing that. In their minds, they’ve worked tirelessly for their party, to keep those crazy Democrats out…only to have to constantly fight with a small number of crazy Republicans–who are only liabilities if they end up as candidates. They’ve fought the good fight, and if they can just find the right candidate, someone with some charisma, they might stop the crazies…without being too beholden to the OTHER crazies. In the meantime it’s not working. What’s a responsible guy in politics to do?

They simply cannot understand that the Republicans can’t succeed as the party of nothing in particular. Not really in the past, and certainly not today when people are starting to realize that no matter what they do in the voting booth, the country is still about to fly off a precipice. If they did see it, they’d suddenly have two choices: Go away and let the GOP succeed, or stay and fight. But “go away” isn’t really an option, because what’s the point of having a party now owned by the crazies, win?

Well, they have a dilemma…and WE, therefore have a problem. And we would have that problem even IF they realized that they had a problem…that they were the problem.

No one ever thinks they are the bad guy. Even Epstein probably thought he was the good guy. Right up to the moment where he didn’t kill himself.

So if you ever wonder why these unappetizing dufuses cling on even when their fingernails are being left behind…that’s why. They don’t understand no one wants them, and can’t imagine that no one should want them. And oftentimes their greatest pride is in all the hard work they’ve done for the party. They’re not going to give that up; it’d be psychological suicide.

If you’ve worked with these people, there’s a good chance you like them and consider some of them your friends. But even if so…we’re going to have to give them a good, hard shove. Because America is more important than those milquetoasts’ egos.

Justice Must Be Done

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.

Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2022 or 2024 is hopeless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud is not part of the plan, you have no plan.

Lawyer Appeasement Section

OK now for the fine print.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

Spot (i.e., paper) Prices

Last week:

Gold $1,921,60
Silver $24.38
Platinum $1,073.00
Palladium $1,863.00
Rhodium $13,000.00

This week, 3PM Mountain Time, markets have closed for the weekend.

Gold $1,927.30
Silver $24.01
Platinum $1,052.00
Palladium $1,800.00
Rhodium $13,000.00

Mixed movement this week. Gold up a tad, rhodium flat, everything else down. If I were one of those guys paid by the YSM to write the rationale for why the stock market went up or down that day, I’d say something like “Precious metals consolidated their gains this week.” And collect my paycheck. Why do I have to code for a living when that clown never learned to code?

Fuck Joe B*d*n

Due to complaints about foul language, I’ve censored the most objectionable word in the title of this section.

B*d*n, you don’t even get ONE scoop of ice cream today.

(Please post this somewhere permanent, as it will continue to be true; the SOB will never deserve a scoop.)

Orbital Elements (Part I?)

Valerie asked me to explain what I was talking about when I talked about Starlink having to be in an inclined orbit, so here’s my attempt.

It turns out there are six numbers that can, taken together, uniquely and completely describe an orbit. Actually, there are many such sets of numbers, but the most popular ones are symbolized by the letters a, e, i, ω, Ω, and t.

But first we’ve got to make some simplifying assumptions. We are talking about two bodies (primary and satellite), and both can be treated as point masses.

As it turns out Newton showed that a spherical body (or whatever size) could be treated as a point mass, provided you’re outside the sphere and it’s radially symmetric. And what that last bit means is that if you start at the surface and drill down, you see the same things at the same depths, no matter where you start from. Earth turns out to have a solid iron core, surrounded by molten iron, surrounded by mantle rocks, surrounded by the crust; since these layers are pretty much the same thickness everywhere, Earth is spherically symmetric.

Well, almost. It does have an equatorial bulge, and the crust is of slightly varying thickness depending on whether you’re on land or out in the middle of the ocean, and the ocean itself doesn’t cover things completely. But it’s close enough for a first approximation.

You can, from an orbital mechanics standpoint, treat the Earth as if its entire mass were at a point at the center of the Earth.

One more assumption is that there is no atmosphere to cause drag.

Under these circumstances, orbits are governed completely by the force the primary (usually Earth) exerts on the satellite. That force “points” directly towards the primary’s center of mass. And in fact you can simply even further. The force on the satellite is proportional to the satellite’s mass; if you want, you can divide through by the mass, and just talk about the acceleration the satellite will experience as a result of gravity–that will be the same whether we’re talking about a baseball, or the International Space Station…or the Moon.

So we have two objects, pulling on each other, out in space. If they are moving slowly enough with respect to each other, one of them will travel in an ellipse around the other; it’s “in orbit” about the other object. (And technically the other object is also in orbit around the first one at the same time…but if one object is huge, like a planet, and the other is an artificial satellite, it is dang close to being “satellite in orbit around planet and not the other way around.”)

If the satellite is moving fast enough, though, it’s not going to go around and around the big object, though; it will escape, and not come back. This too is technically considered an orbit, but that doesn’t fit people’s mental image of an orbit, so I won’t insist on that here.

So, we have some object “in orbit” around the Earth. But that mere statement doesn’t tell you anything about where it will be, when it will be there, or how fast it will be moving, or in which direction.

That’s what you need those six numbers for. They encapsulate all of those things, and given those six numbers, you can (with a lot of computation), figure out where the satellite is, how fast it’s moving at that time, and in what direction. And you can pick any time, too; the computation is good for a thousand years from now, or last week. (Again, with those simplifying assumptions.)

OK, so what are they? Well depending on how much time I have to write this, I can cover two or three of them.

The first and most important is a. This is the size of the orbit. A non-escape orbit will be an ellipse of some kind (or possibly a perfect circle, but that’s actually just thought of as a special case of an ellipse). a is the semi-major axis of the ellipse…halfway across the ellipse the long way. If the ellipse is actually a circle, there’s no long way, or you can think of it as every diameter being the long way, and the semimajor axis becomes the radius of the circle.

An elliptical orbit. The red line is the semi-major axis. The body being orbited is either at F1 or F2, those two points are the foci (plural of focus) of the ellipse.
If the orbit is a circle, the two foci are both at the center of the circle, and a can be from the center to any point on the circle; it’s now a radius.

[Johannes Kepler, around 1600, showed that all planets orbited the sun in ellipses (close to being circles). But that was simply showing that they do it. Newton was able to prove that an attractive force that fell off proportionately to the square of the distance would result in elliptical orbits, at least for things not escaping; thus he could describe the cause of all of those elliptical orbits and eventually show it was the same force that makes an apple fall to Earth or which makes the Moon orbit Earth.]

Now here’s the key thing–the amount of time it takes to make one orbit around some planet (called the “period”) depends only on the value of a. If the orbit is a perfect circle, it takes that amount of time. If the orbit is a narrow ellipse with the same semi major axis…it takes that same amount of time.

These orbits all have the same semi-major axis (the distance the long way across the ellipse is the same, but the shape of the orbit is different. You can see, though that each object takes the same amount of time to orbit the primary…note that every time things are to the left of the primary, they’re in exactly the same configuration. This also illustrates that in an elliptical orbit things move faster they closer they are to the primary.

So, that’s one down: We have the size of the orbit. How about its shape? That is e, the eccentricity. There are multiple different definitions of this number, all with the same result. For our purposes, measure the distance from the center of the ellipse to one focus. Divide that by the semi-major axis. For a circle, the distance to the focus is zero (since both foci are at the center), so your eccentricity will be zero. For a really long, skinny ellipse the focus will be nearly at the end of the ellips and the eccentricity will be almost, but not quite, 1. You can get as close as you like to 1 without actually reaching it; just keep drawing skinnier and skinnier ellipses.

But everything I’ve shown you is two dimensional. What about three dimensions? Couldn’t an orbit be perpendicular to the ones in the last figure I showed, into and out of your computer screen?

Absolutely!!! And the next three numbers will describe the orientation of the orbit, in 3D.

But to describe the orientation with numbers, you must have a coordinate system and then you’ll want to do math. I can relieve you of the math (since I just want you to have a picture of what’s going on) but we’re going to need that coordinate system.

The first thing about that system is that it’s much, much more convenient if it’s inertial…in other words the coordinate system can’t move. That seems kind of trivial and something you shouldn’t have to mention, but that’s not true: we use a coordinate system every day that does move, and that’s latitude and longitude. Sure, 105 West longitude runs through Colorado, and will continue to do so–so it’s stationary, right? No. Colorado moves…because the Earth rotates.

So to best do orbital mechanics, you need a three-D coordinate system, that does not rotate with the Earth. You’d also find it easier if the system were a square grid, which latitude and longitude aren’t (even with altitude thrown in for a third dimension). The most commonly used such system is one called “Earth Centered Inertial (ECI).” In Earth Centered Inertial, every location in space is described by three numbers, x, y, and z. I won’t go too much into x and y (yet), but the Z axis, along which z is measured, is Earth’s axis of rotation. It goes through the north and south poles, and the center of the earth. If some object is on Earth’s axis, it will have a z value, but x and y will both be zero.

But that also means Earth’s equator has a z value of zero, just like Earth’s center does. So the xy plane represents the plane of Earth’s equator.

As described, the Z axis is the earth’s axis of rotation, and the X and Y axes are in the plane of the equator.

So what’s the first thing you can do with an orbit, now that we’re thinking in 3D? Up to now you’ve probably been imagining these orbits as being in the earth’s equatorial plane (if you’ve thought about it at all).

The first thing we can do is tilt the thing so it is no longer in the earth’s equatorial plane. So you can imagine measuring the angle between the plane of the orbit and the plane of the earth’s equator. But that’s not what we do, actually; it’s mathematically simpler to draw a line perpendicular to the plane of the orbit, and measure the angle it makes with the earth’s axis, i.e. the z axis. In the diagram below, h with the hat on it is perpendicular to the orbital plane (green disc) and forms an 11 degree angle with the north pole (k).

[Math note: Take the velocity vector for the satellite. Normalize it, so its length is 1. Take the cross product of it and the z axis unit vector. Take the magnitude of that product. You now have the sine of the inclination angle. For those of you who didn’t understand that, be assured that it’s dead damn easy and you don’t have to watch the satellite in orbit to figure out its inclination, so long as your velocity measurement is accurate.]

Or here’s another one, though it’s showing the angle between two planes definition:

Note that you can go all the way up to a 180 degree inclination, in which case you’ve flipped the orbit over as if it were a flapjack. The difference is, if the satellite were going counterclockwise around the planet before you flipped it, it’s now going clockwise. (Counterclockwise, as seen from over the north pole, is the “normal” direction, the one the moon and planets follow, and is also called prograde. Clockwise is retrograde.)

Note that a satellite will go over the north and south poles only if the inclination is 90 degrees. It will go over every possible latitude. This is called a “polar orbit” and it is the only orbit that can go over every spot on earth. (The orbit has to be of such a period that it doesn’t just hit the same spot at the same time every day, or you’ll repeat the same thing over and over again.)

If it’s only at a 60 degree inclination, it will only go as high (or low) as 60 degrees north (or south) latitude. But you can also get this with a 120 degree inclination! Because the plane of the orbit will at that point be at a 60 degree “slant” just like a 60 degree inclined orbit, but the satellite will be going “backwards” in its orbit.

For a satellite at over a 90 degree inclination, you can figure out the maximum latitude it will go over by subtracting its inclination from 180 degrees, so working that example, (180-120) = 60 degrees.

But you can actually work that backwards. If you’re launching from Cape Canaveral into orbit, what orbits can you get to, directly, without having to maneuver “up there”? (Such a maneuver is a “plane change” and is very expensive in fuel.) Well, ones that pass over Cape Canaveral of course. Cape Canaveral is at 28.5 degrees north latitude, so Cape Canaveral can only launch directly into orbits inclined at least that much. An orbit with a 20 degree tilt, for example, simply will never pass over Cape Canaveral. Cape Canaveral can launch into a polar orbit by aiming the rocket to the north or south, or into a 60 degree orbit by aiming northeast, a 28.5 degree orbit by launching straight east, but it can’t go less than that, because no 20 degree orbit can ever have Cape Canaveral in its orbital plane.

At least some of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites have to be launched into a very highly inclined orbit, or they will never pass over the Arctic. Since Musk wants his starlink to be useful anywhere on earth, he has to have at least some of his satellites be in polar (or very nearly polar) orbits.

Well, with any luck I’ve achieved my goal of confusing Valerie quite thoroughly. And I haven’t even gotten to the other three numbers yet. Maybe some other time.

Obligatory PSAs and Reminders

China is Lower than Whale Shit

Remember Hong Kong!!!

China is in the White House

Since Wednesday, January 20 at Noon EST, the bought-and-paid for His Fraudulency Joseph Biden has been in the White House. It’s as good as having China in the Oval Office.

Joe Biden is Asshoe

China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.

But of course the much more important thing to realize:

Joe Biden Didn’t Win

I saw a video of her as a crack-smoking college student, and she had more meat on the bone – I thought she wasn’t bad at all in a physical sense, but she would have still given me the run-away willies – she just seemed very off.

Hoping that whatever is wrong, it gets fixed. She may be clinically depressed. Praying for her to recover from whatever is wrong. Because something IS wrong, IMO.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎MEGA MAGA GAME ON😎

That’s the 2nd time she lied to Bannon using the consent decree as an excuse for losing elections. It was lifted Dec 2017 so she should’ve had her stuff together and been prepared for 18, 20, and 22 elections.
Her childhood upbringing and her mother’s divorce is irrelevant to her poor job performance.
She only wants to deal with the 168. The 168 represent we the people and she is not acknowledging or wanting to hear from us. Elites don’t want MAGAs. She has support of 150 donors. They’re probably pressuring the Reps. Contact your reps, there’s 3/state. I know TX, ARK, AZ and more are against her. FL just came out against her. TX has 2 against, and 1 for her.
Her excuse about no time for the debate is BS. They found 75 free minutes in the schedule where everyone can attend, she’s afraid she’s gonna get cremated, and she will.
She disgusts me more and more every time I see her.

Not the first we’ve heard about this with Wa. State being in the vanguard of pushing this stuff. The vid and article come across using a Christian prospective which is fine, but it’s a problem for anyone MAGA. First seven minutes provides a good overview of the problem.

https://thenewamerican.com/washington-targets-conservatives-as-terrorists-in-new-report-warns-pastor-cummins/

A new report by the Washington State Attorney General targets conservatives and Christians with biblical views as potential terrorists and violent extremists, even equating “disinformation” and “anti-government ideology” with terror and violence, warned Experience Church Pastor Dennis Cummins in this interview on Conversations That Matter with The New American magazine’s Alex Newman. “They’re reframing the idea of what a terrorist is,” Cummins said, noting that the government was trying to frame those who disagree with government as violent terrorists. The ultimate goal is to silence and persecute those who speak the truth, he added. Christians and conservatives must continue to proclaim the truth loudly, boldly and with courage, regardless of the opposition, the pastor added. This process of using government coercion to silence those who adhere to biblical truth is already further along in other nations, especially in parts of Europe

Ted Kennedy’s Immigration Legacy — and why did he do it?

Ted Kennedy surely was one of the most influential Senators in our history.

His influence on immigration alone brought more change to America than the work of any other Senator during my lifetime.

Just as a reminder, let’s make a short list of the immigration policies that Kennedy and his extremely talented staff put into effect:

The 1965 revamp of the entire immigration system. It ended 40 years of low immigration, got rid of solid numerical caps and opened up chain migration into every overpopulated country in the world, exploding annual immigration numbers.

Massive expansion of the refugee programs in the late 1970s, opening up massive loopholes and encouraging a domestic resettlement industry that became a major lobby for more and more overall immigration.

The 1986 blanket amnesty. Kennedy’s skills may have been best seen here where he got legislators on our side to agree to the amnesty in exchange for enforcement rules that he made sure were written in a way that would not work. Within a decade, he would be using the inability to enforce the 1986 rules as an excuse for why we needed more green cards and more amnesties.

An example of Kennedy’s great skill was that he persuaded Ronald Reagan to enthusiastically support this bill. The 1990 immigration act, which increased overall immigration by another 35%. The first Pres. Bush was Kennedy’s co-partner, just as the second Pres. Bush was Kennedy’s eager co-partner in trying to force through another blanket amnesty 2001-2008.

The 1990 act also established the lottery whereby we randomly give away 50,000 green cards a year to people in countries picked because they have the least ties and cultural association with the United States, and which disproportionately are terrorist-sponsoring countries…..

2.1 is replacement rate and whites are not even managing that.

Rather than denouncing acts of terrorism, just one day after recent tragic events in San Bernardino, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told a group assembled for the Muslim Advocates dinner that the Justice Department is prepared to take “aggressive action” against people employing anti-Muslim rhetoric that “edges towards violence.”

Grows Own Food

Reminds me of a local news report where they actually did a segment on how it was more expensive to keep chickens for personal use than to buy your eggs and chicken meat from the grocery. It has become so popular around here that the sales of same are down while personal independence is going up.

They keep trotting out the propaganda news readers to do their heavy lifting while MAGA and patriots are traveling farther away with more and more followers tagging along.

Gail Combs

Tax payers SUBSIDIZE CORN and other grains. That is the ONLY REASON feed lots are more ‘economical’ than pasture raised.

singingsoul1

The eggs I buy were $7,00 how much higher can it go? The trouble is I like the taste of them they must feed them good food and they are free range.
Pasture raised is better all the way around.

Gail Combs

Feed prices have gone through the ROOF.

When I first moved to NC (1995) horse feed was $3 for 50 lbs.
A decade or so later cracked corn, that I fed to my goats was $7 for 50 lbs

NOW cracked corn is $16.49/50# and the multi -grain chicken scratch I used to buy for my bucks is now $18.50/50#

I could go thru my records and get more accurate but that gives you the idea.

It’s hard to believe that even military intelligence was completely fooled and caught unawares.

Especially when, as the video narrator says, it was “that easy”.

One might have hoped that military intelligence might have war-gamed such a scenario, at least a couple thousand times.

Unfortunately they were not listening,
They’re not listening still

I’m trying to think of a Valentine’s day present for my wife. Something that’s not junk. We got way too much chocolate from family for Christmas, and we’ve had a lot of flowers lately.

cthulhu

Spa day.

Not a vanity spa, a health spa.

cthulhu

Just as a rule of thumb….

Heat (steam room / sauna / hot tub) + deep tissue massage + body add-ons = more of a health spa. Hair / nails / toenails / aromas = more of a beautician spa.

I flew back from England in coach one time and my body was one big cramp. Got back to town, did two hours of spa, and went home to bed, whimpering….woke up the next morning feeling better than before I had flown to England — I could stand taller, walk more steadily, carry more weight, move more smoothly.

Highly recommended.

That sounds good and has potential

It’s OK if she requests something practical, but NEVER as a surprise gift for Valentine’s Day. It’s supposed to be about love/romance/appreciation, not here honey, iron my clothes.

A sentimental gift is also good for V-day. Find a good pic of the 2 of you together, put in nice 8X10 frame.

Does she like candles? Long Baths? Go to Sephora and splurge on highly scented candles and bath products.

The following accounts are really good for gaining insight into how mentally damaged these “trans kids” are.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes. There are a lot of very creepy people in that world. Many of them are disaffected transitioners who are angry at themselves and everybody else for their bad decision. This is basically LibsOfTicToc for trans stuff – a lot like Kiwi Farms.

There is a reason that trans kids kill themselves – they are basically mentally ill kids who are talked into making extraordinarily bad decisions that make their lives even worse – and then they realize it. The trans world is a horrible place that was sold to these kids as some kind of panacea. Then they get there and realize it wasn’t.

The problem is, the regime HIDES this fact. The regime hides the fact that trans kids are unhappy, and they try to create a mirage where it is only by “affirming” the insanity that we can help these kids.

It’s nasty medicine, but it’s a potent antidote to regime propaganda.

The suicide rates are thru the roof. Of course the Cabal blames it on Normies Not being ‘Accepting’ instead of major trauma piled on to the mentally fucked up.

Of course the Cabal ACTUALLY WANT THEM DEAD….. Remember the Fabian Society was hand in glove with the Nazis.

Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well.”

I have something that might be interesting this evening…

James at InvestAnswers (<– youtube channel link) is one of my favorite analysts for crypto. Whatever anyone may think about crypto, it’s a fascinating subject and James does regular deep dives and analysis on the crytpo sector (I can’t bring myself to use the word ‘space’). He tells everyone what he invests in personally, and why, and he comes across (to me) as an authentic person.

He has been actively involved in investing for around 30 years and involved with Bitcoin since around 2017 if I remember correctly, since it was cheap. All of the donations to his yt channel go to support injured animals, and frequently he has videos of the animals they have rescued. He gets a little choked up about it sometimes, so I don’t think he’s kidding about it.

He is not crypto only, his own investment portfolio is broken down into thirds, one third crypto, one third real estate and one third stocks, but his primary focus for daily yt videos is crypto and then secondarily the stock market, because as the stock market goes, so goes the crypto market, at least at this stage.

For stocks he focuses on high growth disruptive technology, which currently means mostly Tesla and a smaller portion of Google. His approach is to focus intensely on a small number of investments (e.g., primarily 3 cryptos, 3 companies in the stock market, he’s big on threes) and know everything about them and stay up to date on them daily, rather than a broad basket of investments that he can’t keep up with.

He owns a Tesla with the FSD (full self driving capability), and tracks the progress in how the AI improves with each download/update to the system.

For crypto his largest holding is the most conservative (Bitcoin), with smaller and roughly equal portions of Ethereum and Solana.

Lately he has been hinting at many of the subjects we talk about here, but always pulls back, saying he doesn’t want to get kicked off yt.

I think he is in California, but he’s no Lefty. The other day he said he was going to start speaking the truth about some of these subjects and take the risk of being kicked off. Today he started, and I thought some people here might be interested to see it.

He has 442,000 subscribers, and I would guess the videos average around 20-25 minutes per day. He does longer videos once a week with a couple other yt crypto analysts for a sort of round-table discussion (usually Benjamin Cowen and Dan at Digital Asset News), and they trade off on who hosts the discussion from week to week.

I have been watching his daily yt videos for more than a year now. I have no idea how his regular subscribers are going to react to this sudden jump into adding a ‘truth’ segment to the daily video, but I loved it.

If people like James are starting to talk about this stuff openly on daily yt broadcasts, that seems like a pretty big deal.

I have cued the video to begin just before he transitions to the political commentary, starting with a Davos Recap, talking about WEF, etc.

He also mentioned that the LGBTQ panel at WEF said publicly they were actively subverting the culture through media and entertainment and working actively with Hollywood to do it.

I could hardly believe he was even TALKING about this stuff 😂 but it was great 👍

The political commentary section of the video is only about 7-1/2 minutes long, from where the video is cued to begin, to the end:

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Excellent! Seems like a very rational guy. Not terribly political, so his saying the stuff means that “uncovered rational explanations” are going very mainstream.

scott467

Before today’s video, he wasn’t political at all, so this was a big change.

His approach to investing is very much data driven, so I suspect he will follow a similar approach with the political segment. He provides charts and graphs for everything he talks about, without making it dry or boring.

He gets attacked frequently for being a shill for his favorite investments, but he shares his data and proves his case, he’s transparent about what he invests in and why, and he puts his money where his research leads him.

Another interesting thing he does is to accept challenges from yt subscribers, where someone will challenge his conclusions or present a counterargument, so he will go through it point by point.
