The list today isn’t TOO packed, but still….
The first one up was discussed over the weekend in the comments, but I’m bringing it again just to be sure it’s seen as the analysis is one not found anywhere else. Yet.
The Parliamentary Motive Behind the J6 Fedsurrection
Long time CTH reader “Regitiger” has spent a great deal of time reviewing the entire process, looking at the granular timeline and then overlaying the bigger picture of the constitutional and parliamentary process itself. What follows below is a brilliant analysis of the federal government motive to create a J6 crisis that permitted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to trigger an emergency session and avoid the 2020 election certification challenges.
Those congressional floor challenges, known and anticipated well in advance of the morning of January 6, 2021, would have formed a legal and constitutional basis for ‘standing’ in judicial challenges that would have eventually reached the Supreme Court. The certification during “emergency session” eliminated the problem for Washington DC.
It really is a must read.
Okay, what else have I got….

The Real Reason Why Automakers Slashed EV Prices
The global electric vehicle (EV) market is reeling from one of the most dramatic collapses in monthly sales to date, with Rystad Energy research showing that only 672,000 units were sold in January, almost half of December 2022 sales and a mere 3% year-on-year increase over January 2022. The EV market share among all passenger car sales also tumbled to 14% in January, well down on the 23% seen in December.
My guess: all those who actually WANT an electric vehicle already have one.

4Make me to know thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. 5Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; for thee I wait all the day long. 6Be mindful of thy mercy, O LORD, and of thy steadfast love, for they have been from of old. 7Remember not the sins of my youth, or my transgressions; according to thy steadfast love remember me, for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD! 8Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. 9He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.
21Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” 22Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven. 23“Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. 24When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents; 25and as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made. 26So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, `Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’ 27And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt. 28But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, `Pay what you owe.’ 29So his fellow servant fell down and besought him, `Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’ 30He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt. 31When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. 32Then his lord summoned him and said to him, `You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; 33and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’ 34And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt. 35So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.”

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, cast down to Hell Satan and all his evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.

Hoo, diggety! Much content! Many tabs!
Thank you, DePat!
Make sure you read every last one!
I don’t select every one that DePat brings us — but of the ones that were originally selected, I’m down to two….which I can leave until morning.
For the first time Ever I opened Every One of DP’s recommendations into separate tabs. Not sure how far I’ll get, but will give it the old college try!
The idea is to provide a variety, usually. If something big breaks, I have the option of changing tactics.
And you do it so well! Always something intriguing — or, rather, somethings, lots of ’em.
The X-Files clip is amazing. I wonder what the actors think about it now.
I don’t think it’s real.
It may start out right, but when the dude starts to go into the monologue / recitation (2:18) of everything we’re talking about now in 2023, his lips don’t match the dialog.
It could just be out of sync, but then there is the photo of Snowden on the front of the Washington Post at 3:34.
The person who posted the video wrote: “Watch this and have your mind blown. They knew it did this 20 years ago.”
I was sure Snowden wasn’t 20 years ago, so I checked, and Snowden was 2013.
The original X-Files aired from 1993 to 2002, so pre-Snowden.
The reboot of the series aired from 2016 to 2018, so after the time when Snowden appeared on the scene.
So either the video clip is from only 5 to 7 years ago, or it’s a mix of video from new and old, but at least some of the video must be 2016-2018, and/or post 2020 (dialog), in which case it would be a voice-over, or using audio clips from other episodes, which would explain why the lips are out of sync, beginning at 2:18.
I suppose it’s possible that the video is for real and the person who posted it was just wrong about it being from 20 years ago, but I think it has been altered.
There was just too much that fit too neatly with current circumstances, and then there’s the voice sync problem, which is possible, but this is so out of sync that it’s hard to believe.
I used to watch the original series off and on, but it has been so long, I wouldn’t remember any of these scenes.
Scully’s face looks thinner than I remember, so I’m guessing most of the video is from the 2016-2018 episodes.
I think it has been sped up or time compressed. They are trying to condense the whole thing into a couple of minutes.
When you go deep sea fishing, sometimes you hook a whale.
This isn’t from the original series, it’s from the reboot in 2016.
And it is real, because I remember watching it when it came out.
That’s Really good to know! Well within the timeframe of “revealing the plan” that the Satanic psychos allegedly are required to do before we can thus “assent” to their tyranny 😡
It’s not from 20 years ago, though. It’s from the remake in 2016.
That one is NOT funny which is why I left it off.
100% it is NOT funny. However, it is truth. No turning away. We must face it head on.
Unless, I missed how our woke government and woke businesses, are largely mismanaged these days.
Yes, a lot of them aren’t funny because they portray dark truths in cartoon style.
It’s all fluff and camera placement.
No doubt, since “dog placement” is very difficult unless they’re well trained!

Not showing up for court only compounds his problems. I wonder if he’s still alive.
I wonder if he has enough wiretaps to be a successful fugitive.
Last week or so, Hogan said he wouldn’t run in 24. Just a coincidence.
(The fact that Hogan knows he could never win, was not a factor.)
Amazing Polly on Bit Chute:
Boom! Silicon Valley Bank has Epstein Connection (and more)
I haven’t gotten to the Epstein part yet, but in the early section she talks about how Peter Thiel initiated the SVB bank run, which I had thought about since one of the yt crypto analysts showed one of those spiderweb connections graphics that showed all the people an organizations connected to Peter Thiel.
Including his connections to DJT, which made me wonder whether this might have been an intentionally created crisis.
Polly adds that apparently SVB was heavily involved in Chineeze start-ups, and this is something that Peter Thiel has been concerned about.
He is in a position where he certainly could have started the dominoes falling (means and opportunity). He has a motive (anti-CCP, and/or, completely speculatively, could be acting on behalf of or in concert with DJT).
And then there’s always that concern about coincidences (and how there aren’t any) 😉 😁

JESUS LOVES THE LITTLE CHILDREN
PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD
Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.
I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.
Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.
With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.
Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.
Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER

More from Kennedy on bio-labs
So Soetoro receives plausible deniability for having ordered it shut down when it was intentionally developed under his watch with his full knowledge and approval; but moved so as to not to violate U. S. laws when it became time to prepare it for release upon the world as the scum took more steps toward taking over the world with their latest version of the NWO.
Bannon should take note?
((not sure why it didn’t post who he sent the tweet to:
Replying to @KanekoaTheGreat
Accurate @CommunityNotes ))
Yours Truly: The @KanekoaTheGreat thread has one with Robert Kennedy, Jr., stating that Pfizer-BioNTech gave $1million to the POTUS45 inauguration party, and “he [POTUS45] appointed two of Pfizer’s lobbyists, Scott Gottlieb and Alex Azar. to run HHS. They killed the vaccine safety commission, and Gottlieb went on to serve on Pfizer’s board.”
IMO, it appears that Robert Kennedy, Jr., is attempting to put POTUS45 into a corner regarding the White House response team to COVID-19 and the “vaccines” while he was President. Also attempting to make the case that POTUS45 took tainted money from Big Pharma and then gave Big Pharma lobbyists government jobs, just like other pols do.
Mr. Kennedy, Jr., then goes to state the following:
“The thing I feel like I have, Jimmy, is that I sued those agencies for forty years; I know how they work, I’ve written books about them, I’ve studied them, I know the people in them who are causing the problems, I know how to fix them.”
One wonders if Mr. Kennedy, Jr., is making the case for himself to be appointed as “COVID-19 truth czar” in the next administration — or, if he’s really harboring ideas that he himself can be the next President of the United States.
Who’s Running America? Two of the three branches of government are in the hands of the mentally incapable.

Since a number of long-time Q-Treepers have stepped away (for a season?) let’s not get overly discouraged as we continue to fight the good fight even if we end up being reduced to Gideon’s remnant…

All beautiful words to keep in our hearts!
With respect to Linda Harrison leaving yesterday: she will be missed.
Butterfly, according to DP, had a confrontation with someone, and apparently left because of that. She will be missed.
gingersmom is gone, who knows why, I hope she is well. She regularly made comments which said EXACTLY what I was thinking about something, so naturally I regarded her as VERY astute.
What I do no get is leaving announcements, especially leaving announcements without rational leaving explanations.
Dramatic departures were an internet thing from the start. I cannot count the number of times throughout the years some regular at someplace made a dramatic departure.
Not to get too philosophical or serious, our society is loaded with people who have abandonment or rejection issues deep in their make-up. This is, IMO, because our society is rife with very harsh abandonments and rejections. There is a whole segment of our society which lives a feral existence because of abandonment and rejection.
I do not mean to get mawkish or sentimental. People have to stand on their own two feet. But many, many people feel as if they are drowning, constantly trying to stay above water emotionally, or just psychologically. IMO — just speculating – – many, many of these people are coping fundamentally with abandonment and rejection issues, deep emotional pain, inflicted in childhood. Grief not unlike grief over the death of a loved one, only silent, unrecognized by anyone else, and everlasting. No comfort except self-comfort. And those type of issues never go away. Never.
As many of us know, Jesus is the answer. But that is a reality which is left up to the Holy Spirit, and all we can do is gently witness, if we even get that opportunity.
Anyway, being the rejector is a means to deal with a deep sense of abandonment or rejection. Separation and isolation are close to an automatic defense, a “logical” defense.
And as a witness, it is up to those left behind to show compassion.
I was thinking that she let us know she was leaving was a kindness, so people here were not left to wonder if something had happened to her.
Yes, always nice to shout out “We’re out of here, good night” when leaving a crowded place.
If you make any sort of announcement, it looks like drama to some people.
If you simply disappear some people will inevitably start a drama asking where you went.
You’re basically going to anger or worry someone no matter what you do.
Linda was kind to let us know she was moving on. Perhaps it is permanent, temporary, or Linda has not decided. .
Could be stress of so much going wrong in the country / world. Perhaps a health or family issue. Employment. Could be anything. I don’t need to know, really.
Linda was not a frequent poster, But I DID appreciate here posts.
Thank you k. We all have health issues we deal with. God bless.
Just now saw your reply. ^^^
WSB, you ARE treasured. Be Well. Be Safe.
Second that with enthusiasm!
Some of us have the most problematic circumstances.
I am attempting to stay here.
“I am attempting to stay here.”
I hope you do, it’s always good to see you posting here! 👍
BTW: your post including retiger’s original observations has turned out to be very valuable. IMO it will grow in value as time goes on and people discover the actual, practical purpose for the J6 hoax (in addition to the propaganda purposes).
Scott, please email me back.
WSB, I would email you back, but how do I do that? I have not received any message (that I’m aware of) to reply to.
(did you check your spam/junk folder ?)
Did all and done .Thank you!
Good YW !
How are you WSB ?
(Snowed in !)
(mostly rain and wind down here on the island…)
I caught your work on the J6/Photo-journalists…
There’s a “there’ THERE !
Same! Bless you!
Yes, I checked it yesterday and again just now. I don’t know how anyone would have my email address, but I checked the main email accounts I use, and I didn’t see any emails from WSB (or anyone I don’t regularly receive emails from).
I checked the spam folder at each account 👍
You’re welcome WSB, but I don’t know what I did 😂
You asked me to email you back, and I would, but I can’t find any message from you in any of my email accounts!
I think thats fair. We actually care about where and why people leave.
Allow me to say it is hard to show compassion to someone who isn’t present.
More to the point, all of these people whom I will miss are all afflicted with a need to be adored/acknowledged by everyone around them while receiving NO CHALLENGES.
Something is wrong with their makeup, as you say. But I refuse to accept ANY responsibility to deal with it, unless I did something improper that caused it and/or contributed to it.
They have individually decided that their feelz are more important than any value gotten from this site. Well, it’s their loss and they should avoid the door smacking them in their asses as they leave.
Note: If they return, I will behave as if they never left.
It could be they’re just tired and need to recharge their batteries. There are periods when the bad news seems like all the news there is, and people just need a break from it.
Hopefully that’s all it is, and they will return when they want to.
I do hope those who are taking a break at least lurk regularly, either here or at the associated blogs, to not miss any important information. Like covid treatment and related news, as one example.
People here have REALLY short memories.
The reason why the bulk left on more than one occasion was the pile ons that happened when a departure was announced.
More than one took a break and never came back.
There have been several times when the person leaving was harangued by one or more accounts. (Btfly was one of these.)
The only reason I am still here is the cause. I don’t comment much anymore and won’t. I have my reasons.
The reality is the debate is impoverished due to running off so many commenters. Some of the best ones are gone.
Thanks for your kind words about those of us who appreciate wolfmoon enough not to get our panties in a wad. I feel so empowered to know I’m not one of the best.
Well, that depends on who you’re asking, I guess. Nobody asked me. I think you’re one of the best. I have my own list.
This is one hot kitchen sometimes. Not everybody is cut out for it.
Wolf asked us not to “take sides” in the online disagreements. I try, but that is outside my nature. I am sometimes wrong, but I’m pretty black and white. I see conflict generally that way. It’s the same here. But I’m trying hard to be good.
I don’t understand why Linda left. I wish Butterfly hadn’t, but I get why she did, because she explained why she was going. Sometimes the book just isn’t worth the candle, and in her case, what we have here wasn’t worth being bullied.
“I don’t understand why Linda left. I wish Butterfly hadn’t, but I get why she did, because she explained why she was going.”
I missed that discussion completely, as it seems I frequently do. I’m not sure why.
I must miss a lot of things between the time that I post on the new daily thread after midnight, and when I am able to check back in, usually late the following afternoon.
There are often several hundred posts by then. I try to check for replies to any of my own posts that might require a follow-up (using ‘word search’ for my screen name to quickly go to each of my previous posts), and then scroll through everything else as time allows.
By the end of the day, checking in periodically, checking the posts highlighted in yellow (indicating they are new), I thought I should be seeing most of what transpired.
But clearly I’m still missing a fair amount of discussion.
That happens to me, too. I just happened to catch this time.
Me three. And i check in more than once but life keeps me busy at home too.
ThanQ. You’re very kind.
I said SOME of the best. There are several left who offer constructive commentary.
I know what you meant. I think almost everyone here offers good content. It varies day-to-day.
It disappoints me when people leave. Mostly. But a couple of times I’ve been glad. I don’t mind a good scrap now and then, but some people don’t know when to give it up.
I believe that I’ve gained and benefited in various ways from every person here, and I am very appreciative.
As am I, TT.
This place has been a life- and sanity-saver for me over the last several years.
Some people are jerks, cannot nor will be rehabilitated. Some people are martyrs, always looking for and finding the perceived snub. Some feel superior about their opinions. Not everybody is going to be bff’s or heap praise on every thought.
If one doesn’t like it here and is only tolerating the rabble that’s left in the ashes of some super think tank of the past..well that’s a bit hurty to the feelz but whatever. Life isn’t always rainbows and I do like this place so I’ll stay until I don’t want to learn something new and hear what people are up to. Mediocre suits me fine 🤓
“People here have REALLY short memories.”
Well, we’re gettin’ old.
Been waiting a long time now, years, more than half a decade, for anything (substantive) to happen 😂
If they had already decided to leave, then discussion after their announcement of leaving should make no difference unless they were testing the waters, which is a form of game-playing. I would not ascribe those kinds of motives to them.
If “pile ons” refers to what people said after someone else left or announced they were leaving, some of that includes hard truths that a person refused to acknowledge. Some can’t/won’t see that their own behavior, judgment of others’ motives, and sensitivity were causing trouble.
I agree w the people being run off. I just dont understand the why of it. I LIKE lots of voices and dont understand the sniping….at all.
One guess is that for years it’s been a grind. Lots of losses and few life changing wins. Lots and lots of ‘ We got em” and then….fizzle to nothing.
Trump is the one and only incentive and even he is subject to the machinations of the cabal..day in and day out
It’s very hard to keep genuine enthusiasm amid fear for our jabbed loved ones, the economy, the rising food, gas & utility bills, etc etc
I agree. Definitely. We all have to list our priorities and this is low for many.
Yep. When our collective reason for being here is in tatters it stands to reason that tempers are easily frayed, emotional wounds are kept…maybe? lol, who knows..we’re tired and miss the old Q zingers
I imagine perhaps once we get to the end of the year there MAY be some frens who arrive for election season but its really gotten different and people are stressed(and older). Its a different place than 2016 was.
It’s hard to be hopeful for 2024 since the steals of 2020 & 2022 AND given that it appears that the entrenched fraud mechanism is largely still intact. We didn’t vote in the communism & we’re not naïve enough to think we can vote it out. These continue to be pretty dark days!
Yes maam. Ugly world atm.
Tragically so. But in spite of that we need to not lose heart & trust & hope in the Lord…
Oh, DP, don’t give up the fight … your notes [comments] are among the best! But, I have to wonder what is all this talk about disunity here in the tree? Are we becoming the CTH made over again? Does anyone remember why we’re here?
Sending Good Energy and Good Health to all those whose monikers are no longer seen on this board. They are missed.
Tonawanda, THANK YOU.
Very well said, Tonawanda.
“many, many of these people are coping fundamentally with abandonment and rejection issues, deep emotional pain, inflicted in childhood. Grief not unlike grief over the death of a loved one, only silent, unrecognized by anyone else, and everlasting. No comfort except self-comfort. And those type of issues never go away. Never.
As many of us know, Jesus is the answer. But that is a reality which is left up to the Holy Spirit, and all we can do is gently witness, if we even get that opportunity.”
I absolutely resonate with this in my own personal struggles. I used to say to myself “rejected, despised, abandoned, betrayed, & deceived” as a reminder of some hard won life experiences & the accompanying pain, that does never Fully go away, even with the Holy Spirit providing His Comfort.
In my main blog I did a lengthy post trying to find antonyms for the above list & scriptural truths to combat the darkness, yet have only very imperfectly found ways to substitute God’s Truth for the Enemy’s lies…
Aspects of my psyche have seemingly been shattered by life’s wounds & circumstances, so I resonate with your compassionate response. With those who’ve chosen to leave I recognize the need to step back for R & R, especially when significantly wounded Here. It’s happened to me before a few times & I took a mini-retreat to regroup & then get back into the fight.
I hope that our absent compatriots have found, or even created, a haven where they can continue to Fight the Good Fight! There is just too much on the line to choose permanent retreat. ymmv
Here was a post on dealing with some of that shattering of the mind/heart…
There is scriptural truth here too!
I started reading the first linked and bookmarked because it looked like like it needed slower reading.
Hey no prob. It wasn’t necessarily directed at you. Sometimes I share links to some of my writings in case anyone reading along might get something out of those journeys. It’s all in God’s hands, timing, & will. Blessings!
What I meant was, the article looked so good I wanted to take my time reading it.
That’s sweet Tonawanda, thank you 🙂
Great post, Tonawanda, I’ve always been with ya … keep up the fight … never give up …
Allow me to point out that Gideon’s remnant were the ones to do the fighting. Everyone else went back to their families. Safe and sound.
Yes, but Gideon’s remnant were empowered by the Lord to accomplish more through Him than they ever good do in their own strength…and so creatively too!
They were. I think the point was that they were present so that they could be empowered and used.
Amen we have to be willing to be on the front lines to be used in the battle, even if we just have to stand our ground & watch & pray & see what God will do!

Using Ukrainians to Dismantle America
Written by Michael J. Matt | Editor
Something happened last Friday, or so I am told, the consequences of which would be known on Monday (yesterday) improving the life of every American.
My life seems the same, but maybe I missed something.
Looking for my, Surprised Face.
Likely, that cartoon character, lives within the, District of Criminals.
Was stoopid on the surface then, as it is stoopid, now.
I think the dude reintroduced the Segway.
It’s going to change everything.
Except for the bike hat.
DC Drano put something up Friday about Monday being historical on TS. Then Monday he was talking about a SC 1st A case that’s taking place.
Yawn so far………
y’all’s mileage may vary …
but I don’t read DC Draino or any of the left-over cue anons and very few of the so=called alt correspondents … in my opinion they express ‘their opinion’ and I prefer to research and come to my own ‘opinion’ (which so far has served me well) Some I see as click bait, striving to continue the revenue they had during the Trump Admin and others con’t as loyal opposition (i.e. Poso who talks about everything but the elephants in the room … with an occasional shout-out to what is the shiny ball du jour…
frankly I find more ‘intelligence’ in the comment section of some of the international blogs… again… ymmv
(not directed to Brave and Free 😉 but the ‘universal’ you …
Ohh, and we have quite a few experts here … esp considering the small number of commenters … I trust their comments much more than those raking in $$
and I wish they would speak more often …
No problem 😉
I look at things from many different perspectives some stick and some don’t. The suspicious cat is always there over the shoulder.
And many get the side eye.
I hear ya!
My general rule: If someone teases somthing coming out in a few days, I basically move (or if I never heard of the schmuck before, place) that person to (in) my “damned f*cking charlatan” list…with very few exceptions.
I can’t remember the last time I moved someone out of that list because they turned out to be right after all.
All you say is true.
I’m guessing that’s it. People who make those kinds of announcements need to think about them in terms of what the public will see as a benefit, right now. Free speech cases are important, but that case is not something I look at and think, Wow, this is going to impact my life in a big way.

“My life seems the same, but maybe I missed something.”
Yeah, I’m not really feelin’ it either.
Whatever happened, it was very subtle… 😉
LOL no holding breath around here for the next amazing event to re-orient (no Chyneze pun intended) all of life! 😎
It was DC-Draino who filed a lawsuit about the Twitter Files, which was rejected outright by the lower courts and is going to the Supreme Court.
His lawyer is Harmeet Dillon.

THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY IS DOING GROUP THINK ON STEROIDS.
13 March 2023 by Larry Johnson 47 Comments
“The line dividing consensus from group think is narrow and not well defined. There are four principal agencies in the U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) who actually produce raw intelligence — the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and the State Department Bureau of Intelligence and Research.
Why is this important? The USIC is on the record supporting the analytical conclusion that Russia is in trouble, Putin is on the ropes and Ukraine can expel Russia from Ukrainian territory as long as it gets the necessary support. How can so many people with advanced degrees from top flight universities be so blind and so deluded? The answer is simple — the USIC is a collection of gargantuan bureaucracies that do not encourage or promote thinking out of the box. Any analyst inclined to engage in counter intuitive or counter narrative analysis is not just ignored. He or she will be punished and, in some cases, fired or shuffled off to dead end jobs.
Let me take you inside the process I experienced as an analyst.”
This article via zeroHedge does a good job in explaining what is going on wrt Banks and the Fed … in layman terms we all can understand …
Bank Runs. The First Sign The Fed “Broke Something”
again from zeroHedge
For Fed, What Happens Today More Important Than Monday’s Mayhem
It was clear from the get-go that Monday would be mayhem for the markets – and as it turned out, it proved a lot more than that, with two-year Treasury yields collapsing the most in decades.
At stake was not just the integrity of the financial system, but also the availability of liquidity.
Bloomberg cross-asset strategist, Ven Ram, notes that as of the start of the European morning, the markets appear a lot calmer, with Treasury yields having barely moved, the dollar attempting to claw some way back and stock futures a lot less jittery.
Shortly, we get the readout on inflation for February, with the median estimates for on-month and on-year numbers forecast to show a deceleration.
There are two ways this could play out from the Fed’s perspective.
Additionally, as Bloomberg’s Sebastian Boyd notes, today’s CPI print is going to land in a different world than the one Jerome Powell described to Congress a week ago.
Just look at the massive repricing in the Treasuries curve since last Tuesday.
A chart like this is so unusual, you should print it out to show to your grandkids.
Even if CPI comes in hot, it’s hard to imagine the curve bouncing back, even if that might have been the Fed’s intention with its stunning announcement over the weekend.
That’s not to say yields won’t rise.
After Monday’s extreme price action, the most normal thing would be to see rates claw their way back.
Short-dated eurodollar yields, which were down 80bps at one point on Monday, are up as much as 33 bps on the day.
We may crawl our way back to pricing a terminal rate close to 5%, but confidence has been shaken.
If the Fed’s plan was to tighten until something broke, we seem to have made it.
Last week is another country, they do things differently there.
After The CPI: Hike 25, Pause Or Cut? Here Are Wall Street’s Reactions
And so the week’s main event, the February CPI, has come and gone and while it wasn’t “shockingly hot” – which would have sent stocks tumbling today – it was in line with elevated expectations, with core CPI coming in slightly above consensus. While most of the inflation was driven by shelter, accounting for over 70 percent of the headline increase, Powell’s preferred “Supercore” metric (which excludes shelter and rent) rose to 0.5% from 0.36%, the highest since September.
For what it’s worth…
Anecdotally I CD shop locally. Not being musically inclined I’ve instead kept my eye toward bank CDs. Prior to this SVB thing high rates if they can be called high 4.80% to 3.75%, have pretty much only had high rates in the 18 month range with only a few lower with lower lengths of deposit. After 18 months the rates plummet to closer to 1% and below making those look very unattractive. 18 months has been optimal and continues to be optimal but…
As of yesterday I’m seeing the rates of those past the 18 month mark, those stretching out to 2yrs and beyond, up to 10yrs, have markedly risen around between the 1.5 – 2.5% range, maybe a bit beyond. I suspect they will go continue to go higher. I assume this may mean the banks are seeing that the FED has not got the inflation thing under control and are thus forecasting longer period malaise in the economy.
Note- my shopping about locally has been with one credit union on the high end and while I’m weary of credit unions this one serves a military community and the banks I’ve been looking at are all rather stingy conservative banks. I’m not at all looking at the big banks.
Big banks are for sheeple.
Or for the people who don’t want to lose their deposits 😂
True, lots of folk running to big banks because big banks are too big to fail and the government will step in and bail them out. Or at least that is the current wisdom developed practically over night after watching SVB and Silver fail and both get bailed out.
“Oh, but it’s not a bail out!, banks are going to foot the cost!”.
Sure, and your banks aren’t going raise fees on anyone right…? 😆
And all that money in the banking sector that just disappeared is going to come back right..? (but in somebody else’s pocket)
And none of this impacts inflation as depositors are suddenly made whole over night. (Did something got printed somewhere?) while the FED cowers from raising rates to fight inflation.)
All while emboldening banks to be more risky. (Risk? What risk. The FED is going to back stop us as long as we are do more failed stupid things like ESG, build back better, subside the take over of Amerika and such and if that fails there’s always CBDC and hey! What better place to be than a big bank when CBDC kicks in..))

“…It’s time to prepare…” ~ Dan
Very wise words …
trying to learn how much the USD has weakened is like
trying to find criticism of Biden policy in yellowstream
this from Reuters (ugh!) quoting ‘Bankstas’ (Ugh!) which I’m sure is
more propaganda … The Euro and the USD have to be weakening
as the T-Bonds are … and the derivatives haven’t even appeared!
Anybody got any ‘intelligence’ about this?
well, I posed my question to ZH commenters …
“It’s only weaker compared to things of real value”
I fell out the chair laughing! The USD is total worthless paper, which we believe to have value because we are told it does… but it’s deception, illusion – which is cratering and although the Fed and the Biden Admin have ‘backstopped’ the banking crisis … the illusion is falling …
Hard to weaken something that has no value to begin with …
I see the CBDC as a non-starter.
I don’t suspect that it is anywhere near ready for prime time, and with so much truth coming out every day, they are running out of time.
If they do get around to trying to introduce it, it will have to be gradual, because there are going to be problems (just as there are problems with any crypto).
So you can’t just flip a switch and suddenly we’re all on CBDC now. There are inherent problems, and also because hackers are going to have a field day finding back doors and taking the whole system down… if people think there are problems with that happening in crypto now (and there are, every day), just imagine when the FED presents itself as the #1 target / enemy of all human kind, so the hackers of the world unite and all target Darth Vader / Dark Helmet simultaneously 😂
It’s not going to be a smooth transition.
And that doesn’t even take into account the resistance that People are going to have, to what will quickly come to be known as SpyCoin.
I expect it will break down along ideological lines at first, with lunatic Leftists embracing SpyCoin, and conservatives rejecting it.
As soon as lunatic Leftists experience the fascist control aspects first hand — and TPTB won’t be able resist the temptation for long — they will abandon it too.
But in the meantime, the whole country (and world) would be getting up to speed on crypto, and how to use it.
So in a sense, forcing CBDCs on the population will force the general population to learn crypto. As soon as TPTB overreach (and they always do), the entire population will bail out of CBDC and pile in to Bitcoin.
And there is only so much overreach TPTB can do, without driving people into Bitcoin. This is another reason Bitcoin is so powerful. Without it, there would be no alternative to CBDC.
With it, it acts as a check and balance against TPTB, which is why TPTB will (eventually) do everything they can to destroy it.
Bitcoin is the only crypto that is truly decentralized and has a big enough (and therefore strong enough) network to withstand a nation-state level attack.
Bitcoin was created after (and in response to) the 2008 global financial crisis, and it was designed to address all of the problems with fiat currency and central bank / gov’t control, and to address the problems associated with gold (portability, custody, security, incremental divisibility, etc.).
It has had 14+ years so far to grow and mature. It has withstood every challenge and only grown stronger.
Unlike every other crypto (that I am aware of), Bitcoin has no CEO who can be bought off or blackmailed, no board of directors to infiltrate, no headquarters or control structure that can be usurped or taken over.
And unlike every other crypto (that I am aware of), it has a baked-in limit of 21 million Bitcoins that can ever be issued, so inflation (i.e., turning on the money printer) is not possible.
It is practically divisible to infinity, so there will always be enough of it to satisfy the commerce needs of the entire population of the world.
It gets a lot of bad press from the MSM (naturally), but it’s an amazing technology, designed with exactly this fight in mind.
So we’ll see. It will be like the Empire (Strikes Back) vs. Humanity, as always.
This time, unlike previous inflection points in history, Humanity has X-wing fighters (Internet, Bitcoin) and a detailed map of the Death Star 👍
And the miserable totalitarians occupying the seats of power are nearly all old and decrepit.
While the Rebel Alliance… is not 😁
Pretty much nails it…
Read/listen to Catherine Fitts … that’s exactly where they want to take us …
CBDC – Technocratic/transhumanism is next on the agenda
Covid vaccine/boosters are what that’s all about …
read Catherine, please
video is from early part of the lockdown
Solari.com has tons of info
I’m watching it now.
I’m only 5 minutes in, and I understand her points, but the counterpoints are built into her points.
The complexity of what TPTB are trying to do with global CBDC is off the charts, as she admits. Complexity is fragile, with many weak links.
She admits that in order to succeed, people have to go along with it, thinking it’s one thing when really it’s a control mechanism.
Too many people are already aware of this, and will only become more so, as TPTB come closer to unveiling their SpyCoin.
One of the biggest problems with CBDC is that they can’t make people use it.
They can only incentivize and use a combination of carrots and sticks.
It’s a fantastic fear and propaganda tool, because the mind races with the horrific possibilities, and the fear makes us momentarily forget that we’re talking about a bureaucratic behemoth, which, while very adept at crime in the same sense as muggers and strong-arm robbers, are not very adept at complex tasks.
And it’s hard to imagine something more complex than converting the entire global financial system, and to do so in a way that nobody wants, pushed by tyrants who create spontaneous natural resistance to everything they do.
So far (only 5 minutes in), I have not heard anything that we can’t overcome.
keep reading 😉
and your optimism about people ? I don’t share it… look at how they bought into vaccines, Ukraine etc etc
“and your optimism about people ? I don’t share it… look at how they bought into vaccines, Ukraine etc etc”
Agreed. But apparently ‘only’ around 70% of the population took the vaxx, and many of them were coerced against their will.
I would guess that at least 25% were coerced against their will and/or better judgment. Combined with the 30% who refused, that’s more than half who refused or wanted to refuse.
And now that we have all been through a test-run, a serious one where decisions had to be made about life, death, career, etc., we are much better prepared for the ‘next’ thing.
I strongly suspect that the 25% who allowed themselves to be coerced during the Covidiocy will be saying Hell no the next time around, having the benefit of hindsight.
So it’s not so much optimism about people, as people learning from getting burned.
Once bitten, twice shy. And Covid was no regular bite, that dog tore many people a new *&^hole.
That’s not the kind of thing they’re going to forget 😉
As far as Ukraine, I have never had any sense that there was popular support for it.
Not beyond the cheerleaders in MSM and the botfarm brigades on Twitter.
That creates an impression that they are the majority and we are the minority, but I don’t think that’s hardly ever the case.
I think it’s the opposite.
It’s why I was so disappointed that DJT didn’t break up the propaganda MSM when he was elected. It is the MSM (and social media) that the enemy uses to control the narrative. Without it, they’re toast.
Twitter seems like a whole different universe since Elon took over.
The bots and Leftists are still there, but there are a lot fewer of them, and we can now ridicule and humiliate them without any concern of being banned.
As a result, they don’t appear ‘dominant’ anymore, they just look like the idiots they are, because there are so many more of ‘us’ tearing their pathetic arguments apart than there ever were before 👍
I never used (pre-Musk) t
witter as a barometer for support one way or other … used family and their friends who got the shot willingly… same ones who did not see Dubya attacking Iraq as a sham but “he will go down as greatest …”
just look at all the ‘Russia’ hate … we don’t agree that the stupid suddenly got smart, so let’s agree to disagree 😉
have you gotten to the part where Fitts speaks about what’s in the vax and boosters ?
I will get back to it soon, trying to do too many things at once 😉
I never really used Twitter until just recently either. Whenever I tried in the past, I was banned almost immediately. Just for speaking plainly about things, no different than we do here.
But since Elon took over, I tried to log in, and I could. Mostly I didn’t do much, but posted a few zinger replies to lunatic Leftists.
Then I was locked out again for a while, until just recently, maybe about three weeks ago. I saw a post from Musk saying all accounts were restored, so I tried to log in, and it worked again.
So I turned on the notifications, and now I get emails with tweet links to various people I have ‘followed’, and so I see the comments underneath those tweets.
There are still lots of Lefties and America haters in the comments, but the patriots are letting ’em have with both barrels now 👍 😂
As for Russia / Ukraine, I’m seeing fewer of the blue and yellow flags on various forums than I used to see, and it’s fun to question people about why they support modern day Nazis. They have no way to reply, you can tell the question hits them like a lightning bolt out of the sky. So I try to spread cheer wherever I can in Leftistland 🤣
I don’t think the stupid suddenly got smart, but I do see the stupid realizing that their position is being mocked and ridiculed, by people who can back it up with evidence, and they don’t like that.
They acted virtuous and superior before. Most of them haven’t come around to the truth, but they are no longer so cock-sure of themselves, because they are being challenged by people who aren’t part of their echo chamber, in places like Twitter where they used to be ‘safe’.
I’m only at the 14 minute mark of the video, getting ready to eat dinner, so I should be able to watch the rest of it straight through now 👍
