And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

Best part of the movie, IMO.

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

Fellow tree dweller, the late Wheatie, gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.

Auntie DePat’s requests:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

One other vital note:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.


DANIEL 3:52-56

52“Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our fathers, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever; And blessed is your holy and glorious name, praiseworthy and exalted above all for all ages. 53Blessed are you in the temple of your holy glory, praiseworthy and glorious above all forever. 54Blessed are you on the throne of your kingdom, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever. 55Blessed are you who look into the depths from your throne upon the cherubim, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever. 56Blessed are you in the firmament of heaven, praiseworthy and glorious forever.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

⬆️ Those are the Arizona results.

Of course he was expected to win, but it’s worth celebrating that he won Arizona, Kansas, Florida, Illinois, and Ohio. 🥳

Good stuff!


Moreno won in Ohio. (Senate)
I voted for Frank LaRose…because he’s NOT a car salesman !!
and he’s NOT a millionaire.
and he’s NOT pretending to be Donald Trump.
he’s a Marine.
Moreno’s also a big fan of blockchain tech.

low turn-out in Ohio yesterday.

All 3 Ohio candidates were good IMO. LaRose would be an asset in the Trump administration. Particularly for anything related to ELECTIONS.


he’s authentic.


a bloodbath for sure ! 👍

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

In some ways, it is moot whether he wins or not.

He’s going to be the nominee when the national Convention happens.


Yes. I’m celebrating any little victory. In a normal election year, these things would be closely watched. This year, it’s meh.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yeah, celebrate it even if it’s just a “woo hoo!” But in this case, it’s icing on the cake, not the cake itself.

NC has a DemonRat Gov. SNARL….


HE could take a big step toward re-election if he’d sign on. Be a helluva talking point to the voters.

Gail Combs

Nah, we want the Lt Gov, Robinson. AND NO YOU CAN NOT HAVE HIM FOR VP!!! 😉


I didn’t say I was in favor. Just that he could really shake things up if he were to sign on to the filed brief.

After all, it’s basically a no-cost act [just sign his name] so the only reason not to join is his die-hard devotion to the Donkey Party.

Breaking update: An incredibly based company offered to wrap Blasek’s car with the American Flag for free after his school told him he can’t fly the Flag on his truck to school


That’s my favorite thing I’ve seen in a week!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

That would probably be a violation of the Flag Code. So for that matter is wearing it as an item of clothing (as opposed to a patch).


My impression has been that you can’t take an actual flag and make it into clothing, but you can have clothing that looks like the flag. The same would apply to painting a vehicle because they didn’t desecrate a real flag in doing it. But I don’t think that’s correct, now that I’ve (barely) looked into it.

I’ve read that the “thin blue line” flag, which I’ve never liked, is a violation of the Flag Code, but that no one ever enforces it.

Here’s the Flag Code:

After reading part of this Q&A, I think you’re probably right about the violation, and that violations are committed all day, every day. I would have to look into it further.

Example from the Q&A:

Is it okay to use flag napkins or flag paper plates?

No. Section 8i of the Flag Code reads: “It should not be … printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard.”

I like the idea of people wearing flag-themed clothing to show their support for the flag and the country, and of using flag paper plates. 😬

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yes, I personally am happy to overlook some violations as long as its done out of love rather than contempt.

Carrying a gigantic flag flat into a stadium is also a no-no strictly speaking, but again…it’s being done for the right reasons.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I point these things out to warn people because there are some hard-core, letter-of-the-law self-appointed Flag Code enforcers who will spray in people’s faces when people do these things; they don’t care about the motivations. Just be prepared to wear a face shield for the spittle.


That’s kind of surprising because those are leftist tactics, and they aren’t generally as patriotic.

Amish Officially Declared ‘World’s Healthiest Children’ After Rejecting Big Pharma Vaccines

…A study conducted by the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF) found that Covid death rates among Amish communities are an incredible 90 times lower than the rest of fully-vaxxed and boostered, mask-wearing and locked-down America. Despite rejecting Big Pharma’s pills and potions, the Amish are officially the healthiest people in the nation.

What is going on here and what can we learn from this? Amish communities rejected Covid vaccines, refused to wear masks, and went about their normal daily activities while the rest of America was turned upside-down by Fauci, Gates and the plandemic gang. 

According to the CDC and mainstream media, the Amish were set to suffer a huge increase in excess death due to Covid.

However, in reality, the exact opposite happened.

While mainstream America was suffering through the pandemic, the Amish returned to normal in May 2020. Let me say that again.

The Amish returned to normal in May 2020. That’s right, the Amish achieved herd immunity before the vaccines were even available. 

The mainstream media will not touch this story because it completely dismantles the entire establishment narrative. It shows that all the COVID interventions were completely unnecessary. 

The Amish didn’t do anything out of the ordinary to protect against getting COVID: no lockdowns, no vaccinations, no masks, no social distancing, no mandates, no school closures… nothing. The Amish achieved herd immunity and protected the health of their families by doing the exact opposite of what the CDC recommended.

If members of the Amish community became sick, they used ivermectin, zinc, Vitamin D from sunlight and other methods that were demonized by the CDC and FDA.

Even if the vaccine worked and was safe, there was simply no reason for them to take the vaccine because 90% had already been infected in 2020. Taking a vaccine after you’ve already got natural immunity is nonsensical and counterproductive. However, in the US, we were told to get the vaccine even if we recovered from COVID. Many people lost their livelihoods if they did not comply.

Today, more than 3 years after the Amish rejected every aspect of the CDC’s advice, you still cannot find more than a handful of Amish anywhere in America who died from COVID.

Yet, mainstream America is still refusing to listen to the wisdom of the Amish, preferring to place their trust in Big Pharma and the mainstream media…

I don’t see a link in the article to the study.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I cannot find it, either.


I don’t see it on the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation site, but there isn’t a search function.


Thanks, Valerie!

YW TT, it’s a cursory look since my spidey senses aren’t generally up to Q-Tree exacting standards, living life out loud here in the cheap seats where I belong!

Oh – I dd not read the links.

I only skimmed stuff myself 🙂

I’ve discovered that my ability to Really hang on to New info is pretty fleeting so I’m trying not to stress out over not being more thorough on things I’ll largely forget anyways. Getting older isn’t for wimps! Blessings 🙂


Not a study, but I live near a large population of Amish and can vouch for this information.


me too…

they get outside in the fresh air a LOT.

even in the winter.

and I have never seen any Amish wearing any face masks.

I thought I had seen some Amish using computers…as productivity tools, not for accessing the World Wide Waste


Many barns have a single phone inside, just for medical emergencies that need advanced treatment.

Amish are simple folk but they ain’t stupid.


depends on what type of Amish…

there are about 10 different “sects”, I guess you’d call it….ranging from very very Old Order (nothing modern whatsoever, speak only “Dutch”) on up to Mennonites and more modernized Amish who actually drive trucks, farm machinery, run businesses with technology and engage in tourism and other “English” types of commerce, and even use electricity (!)



Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

OK – by going to “Baxter Dmitri” (notorious peddler of “info + disinfo”) we get the “full measure”.

This video of his contains STOLEN material from Sharyl Attkisson’s reporting, and THAT is the ultimate source of the information.


So beware of that guy; good to know. Thanks!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Baxter Dmitri is fairly cunning. His bottom line is “whatever makes the argument effectively is OK”. For example, he used falsehoods to accuse WEF of backing pedo. WEF has very carefully supported pedo, but very sneakily and in ways that leave them blameless, but not in the ways that Baxter Dmitri alleged.

Gail Combs

FWIW the chestnut horse at 5:40 is an American Saddlebred. You will see lots of also ran X-Thoroughbred race horses and Quarter horses but you rarely see ‘pet quality’ Standardbreds or Saddlebreds because the Amish snap them up.

Show stables sell their second string Saddlebreds at Amish auctions because they know they will bring top dollar.

The Amish have no use for X-Thoroughbred race horses. They are too dumb and too crazy.

The Gospel of Bitcoin
By Fay Voshell

“A recent tweet published by James Saylor, executive chairman of MicroStrategy, represents him as having laser eyes, his head surrounded by a Bitcoin halo.”


This asshat doesn’t even know the guy she’s reporting on is named MICHAEL Saylor, not ‘James’ 😂🤣😂

You see what I mean? It’s idiocy. This is what I’m up against. The MSM has no idea what they’re talking about, or they’re intentionally doing hit pieces.

They can’t even get the name of the FOUNDER of the company right.

Not just the founder of MicroStrategy, but one of the most eloquent proponents of Bitcoin in the world. She doesn’t even know his NAME, but she’s going to write a hit piece on Bitcoin with JAMES Saylor in the opening sentence 🙄

It’s unbelievable… this article should be a hoot 😂

Last edited 1 month ago by scott467

About ten paragraphs in, this ought to be considered journalistic malpractice with intent to deceive.

I could debate this woman right now, with ZERO preparation, and destroy her hit piece, point by point.

It’s embarrassing.

And lots of people will read it, and get the establishment’s ‘approved’ viewpoint on Bitcoin.

It will confirm their negative preconceptions and biases, which already exist due to MSM hit pieces, and give readers another excuse to miss out.

And the masses will follow these deceivers, just like the masses followed the vaxx promoters.

Last edited 1 month ago by scott467

I thought you would comment on this. Thanks for speaking up.

One issue with the masses is that it takes time to learn about something like bitcoin, and it appears to involve risk from the outset. Some people just aren’t interested, or they don’t want to spend the time to learn about something that seems risky. But I think your point is that if you’re not going to take the time to learn about it, then don’t give information to others that will probably be inaccurate.

The situation with the vax involved doing something, whereas with bitcoin, people are refraining from doing something (i.e., researching and engaging in it). But in both cases a narrative is being promoted by people who don’t know what they’re talking about, or who do know and are spreading false information on purpose.


“I thought you would comment on this.”


DP takes good care of me, always bringing me red meat 😁


It’s like reading a hit piece on Trump, published by Rolling Stone Magazine, or Salon or Mother Jones 😂

I agree with you.

They will let us believe cryptocurrencies are bullet-proof, and then the worm will turn.

If it’s electronic in any fashion, someone can and will figure out how to hack and control it, period.

All you have to do is take down the internet and EVERYONE IS BROKE.

I am sorry, but I just do not TRUST computers PERIOD.
Look at what Lindell found out about the hacking of Dominion machines.

As we have learned, even the articles in the WayBack can be changed.

Your bank can be hacked and all your info including credit cards info can be compromised (Happen to me with Bank America. I FINALLY got a letter from them years later.)

I want BOUND hard copy Lab Notebooks dated with 2 signatures and financial ledgers should be kept in the same manner PERIOD!




“All you have to do is take down the internet and EVERYONE IS BROKE.”


You can transact Bitcoin on cell phones too. And by satellite connection.

So you would have to take down the Internet, the entire global cell phone grid, and satellite communications, including all of Elon’s hundreds of satellites.

And if all that happens, we’ll have a lot more to worry about than where our money went 😁

But the good news is, the entire Bitcoin ledger is stored on thousands of computer ‘nodes’ all over the world.

So as soon as the Internet comes back up, or electric power comes back up, the Bitcoin ledger will be exactly as it was before.

This is why even a nuclear war or EMP attack won’t stop Bitcoin, because the ‘nodes’ are all over the planet.

It’s a completely decentralized network.

This is the same reason why governments can’t stop it. There is no singular point for the gov’t to attack.

The only kind of attack that could work is called a brute force attack, which requires hacking 51% of the ‘nodes’, if I understand correctly.

And there is not enough computing power to do that. No nation state can do it, not even nation states working together could do it.

Bitcoin is not some wacky idea that was cooked up by high school kids on their day off.

The creator(s) understood the engineering problems that needed to be solved in order to create a bullet-proof system of sound money, and then they did it.

In 15 years, the Bitcoin network has been under constant attack. It has never been hacked or shut down yet.

It would have been possible to do a 51% attack in Bitcoin’s early days, but TPTB were too busy ignoring it. Now it’s too late, they missed their chance, there are too many ‘nodes’ all over the world.

The Genie is out of the bottle, and now it’s coming for the corrupt fiat currency central banking system 😁


“All you have to do is take down the internet and EVERYONE IS BROKE.”


Doesn’t that same argument apply to the current system?

You might be able to get cash out of an ATM, but not for long, if everyone else is trying to do the same thing.


“Your bank can be hacked and all your info including credit cards info can be compromised (Happen to me with Bank America. I FINALLY got a letter from them years later.)”


Bitcoin has never been hacked.

And besides national security secrets, it’s hard to imagine a bigger target than Bitcoin.

This is what I mean about going down the rabbit hole and learning about Bitcoin.

All of the questions people have are good questions, and many of the arguments people have are good arguments, UNTIL you find out there is a good answer.

I’m not a technical person, but my basic understanding is that even if someone is able to hack an individual ‘node’, if anything is changed or altered on the ledger, it won’t matter.

Because any change to the ledger has to be verified and confirmed by either a majority or by all of the other nodes (I forget which) before the worldwide ledger is updated to reflect the new data.

And you can’t hack more than 51% of all the nodes in the world at the same time, because no one on earth has the required amount of computing power to pull off a brute force attack.

If they did, they would, because that is the only known way to ‘hack’ the Bitcoin ledger.


“But still, there’s a glow around the Bitcoin people that is really not all that holy.”


Okay, but what does that mean?

Is this just a feeling you are trying to describe?

I watch videos about Bitcoin (and other cryptos to a lesser extent) every day, by multiple content providers (at least 9 or 10 now), and there is nothing religious about any of them, neither holy nor unholy, because it doesn’t have anything to do with religion.

If anything, it has to do with Austrian School of Economics, the ideas of Carl Menger, Ludwig von Mises, Eugen von Bohm-Bawerk, and Friedrich Hayek. It is practically the polar opposite of Keynesian Economics.

Austrian Economics is about the rules and economic laws of hard money, which is what all the gold (and silver) bugs follow.

Most of the older people involved in Bitcoin are former gold bugs, and they were gold bugs because they are aware of all the problems with unsustainable debt, fiat currency debasement, the Federal Reserve, etc., all the stuff that we talk about here regularly.

These older gold bugs have looked at the data, and gold has actually lost purchasing power over time, when you account for inflation / debasement.

The gold price is clearly manipulated, and the big bullion banks have been fined for ‘spoofing’ and other illegal tactics in the bullion markets, so it isn’t an unfounded conspiracy theory.

The gold and silver markets are anything but transparent, so no one knows how much there is, or who has what. There is no way to determine the value of an asset whose value is based on scarcity, when no one knows how much there is 😂

Over time, the S&P 500 returns around 14% per year, and the actual inflation numbers by independent sources like TruFlation is around 14%.

So if one is using the S&P 500 as an investment vehicle, making around 14% gains per year, you’re only breaking even, until you pay taxes on the gains, at which point you are actually losing purchasing power.

And it’s much worse if your money is sitting in a low (or no) interest checking or savings account, then it’s like a melting ice cube, losing about 14% per year.

So many of the gold bugs, understanding these things, realized they needed something else, because the tools available to them (precious metals, stock market) were not providing any real return on investment. At best, they were only keeping up with inflation.

As a businessman, founder and CEO of MicroStrategy, this was the exact same problem Michael Saylor was struggling with. They had tens of millions of dollars in their company treasury, and it was losing 14% of its purchasing power every year, like a melting ice cube.

That’s the problem with fiat currency. Even if you invest it in U.S. Treasuries earning 5%, you’re still losing around 9% in purchasing power every year.

That’s not sustainable.

He considered property investment, but it’s not liquid enough to hold large quantities of real estate on a company balance sheet. He looked at all of the available options, and the only investment that delivered a positive CAGR over time that beat inflation and debasement (by a LOT!) was Bitcoin.

So he spent a lot of time researching it, talking with experts about it, learning about it. For whatever it’s worth, he’s an MIT graduate. He’s not an idiot.

Here is the ‘Life’ part of his bio from his Wiki page:

Saylor was born in Lincoln, Nebraska on February 4, 1965, and spent his early years on various Air Force bases around the world, as his father was an Air Force chief master sergeant. When Saylor was 11, the family settled in Fairborn, Ohio, near the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

In 1983, Saylor enrolled at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. He joined the Theta Delta Chi fraternity, through which he met the future co-founder of MicroStrategy, Sanju Bansal.

He graduated from MIT in 1987, with a double major in aeronautics and astronautics, and science, technology, and society.

A medical condition prevented him from becoming a pilot, and instead, he got a job with a consulting firm, The Federal Group, Inc. in 1987, where he focused on computer simulation modeling for a software integration company.

In 1988, Saylor became an internal consultant at DuPont, where he developed computer models to help the company anticipate change in its key markets. The simulations predicted that there would be a recession in many of DuPont’s major markets in 1990.”

When he was satisfied that Bitcoin was not some ponzi scheme or other scam as trustworthy MSM always tries to portray it, he invested $20 million (IIRC) of his own money in Bitcoin.

It was not long after that when he began investing MicroStrategy treasury money into Bitcoin, becoming one of the first listed companies to do so.

Since then, under Saylor’s leadership, as of yesterday, MicroStrategy has accumulated 214,246 Bitcoin, at an average cost of around $35.5k each for a total investment of about $7.6 billion dollars.

Right now, the price of Bitcoin is $67,575 so the value is about $14.5 billion dollars. So he’s doing all right. Better than anyone who’s invested in the S&P 500, or U.S. Treasuries.

Does anyone care? Is any of this information going to change anyone’s mind?

No, it’s probably not, because human psychology clearly doesn’t work that way. Most people believe whatever they want to believe, and logic, and reason, have almost nothing to do with what people want to believe.

We see that even here, every day of the week.

Every single day.

Most of the younger ‘Bitcoin people’ were never gold bugs, but they are interested in Bitcoin for the same reasons as the gold bugs, outlined above.

Young and old, they all see the same problem with the fiat currency system, and with manipulated (and non-transparent) precious metals.

The ship is sinking.

TPTB have corrupted the system SO MUCH that the traditional tools do not work anymore.

So what are they supposed to do?

Blindly and unquestioningly cling to tradition, and go down with the ship?

Many will.

But many decided to look for a better tool.

And after actually learning about it, researching it, studying it (not swallowing MSM narrative about it, or old wives tales), they reached the same conclusion as Michael Saylor did.

The best tool, the best life boat, is Bitcoin.

Is that, or anything else I could say, going to change your mind?

Hell no! 😂

Only YOU can change your mind.

Do you want to?

If you do, then you can.

If you don’t, then you won’t.

Only you can decide 🙂


I should also mention that many of the older gold bugs who now invest in Bitcoin have not abandoned gold, either for reasons of diversification (not wanting all eggs in one basket), or because old habits die hard.

Both are understandable.

I would not argue for abandoning precious metals, and I don’t think most of the older ‘Bitcoin people’ do either.

Most of them don’t argue for going all-in (100%) into Bitcoin, either.

It’s not ‘all or nothing’, it’s more like an addition.

Maybe a 1% to 5% portfolio allocation to start with. As returns grow, and one’s understanding of the asset class grows, maybe the allocation of one’s portfolio grows too, or maybe one is comfortable and happy with 1% to 5%.

And no one has to buy a whole Bitcoin in order to invest (though obtaining one whole Bitcoin would be a good goal to reach). Bitcoin is divisible, so any fractional amount can be purchased. The new Bitcoin ETFs making buying fractional amounts of Bitcoin easy, by buying ETF shares. Last time I checked, Fidelity’s Bitcoin ETF (ticker: FBTC) was at $57.62 per share.

So with Bitcoin at around $67,000 per whole Bitcoin, for $57.62 you are buying about 0.00086 Bitcoin ($57.62 ÷ $67k = 0.00086).

At that rate, it would take 1,163 shares of FBTC to equal one whole Bitcoin ($67k ÷ $57.62 per share = 1,162.79 shares).

It’s not so scary or controversial or threatening, if you just dip your toe in the water. With a 1% allocation, even if Bitcoin goes to zero (extremely unlikely!), nobody is going to be wiped out from a 1% loss to their portfolio.

It’s just another option, another way to invest, and based on Bitcoin’s 15 year track record, the returns are eye-watering. Life changing, for many.

I know the FUD (fear, uncertainty & doubt) from the constant drumbeat of anti-Bitcoin MSM propaganda can be overwhelming.

Consider the source of the FUD.

Then consider that Larry Fink, the monster of Blackrock, the biggest asset manager on planet earth, has risked his company’s entire reputation on Bitcoin.

If Bitcoin blows up and goes to zero, Larry is gonna have a lot of egg on his face, and have a lot of crow to eat, and I don’t think Larry likes egg on his face, or eating crow for 3 meals a day, in perpetuity.

I don’t believe any of the ETFs would have been approved, without Blackrock applying the pressure, because Blackrock has the financial heft to make the politicians jump. People have been trying to get Bitcoin ETFs approved for something like 10 years now, but it didn’t happen until Blackrock (and Fidelity) put their financial muscle behind it.

So the MSM can continue their globalist, pro-Central Bank, anti-Bitcoin agenda, but Larry Fink and Fidelity and the other ETFs have left the station, and those trains are picking up speed.

There will come a time, likely in the near future, when the MSM’s anti-Bitcoin narrative will collapse under its own weight. They will look like Baghdad Bob, claiming the Americans are nowhere near the city, while you can hear American machine gun fire through the open window of the press briefing room 😂

In the meantime, it seems to be a struggle between narratives on the one hand, and natural human resistance to new things on the other.

Even if one decides to believe the MSM anti-Bitcoin narrative, the fact that Bitcoin has become prominent enough to even warrant the MSM paying so much attention to it, should be enough to pique one’s interest and curiosity.

I am not a financial advisor, but what I would do is buy a single share of Fidelity’s Bitcoin ETF, for two reasons. First, because they’re not Blackrock.

Second, because unlike most of the other Bitcoin ETFs who are using Coinbase as their custodian for the Bitcoin in the ETFs, Fidelity handles custody in-house. It turns out that Fidelity has been MINING Bitcoin for more than ten years now, if I remember correctly.

So stodgy, crusty old conservative Fidelity knows all about Bitcoin, they’re not new to Bitcoin, even if most of their clients are.

A single share of FBTC is $57.62

Will buying 1 share do anything for your portfolio? Not much, when Bitcoin gets to $1 million, that single share will only be worth about $860. That’s a 15x return, but still only $860.

What it will do, however, is help you to start paying attention to it, because you would have at least a tiny amount invested in it.

And by paying attention to it, seeing it on your monthly account statement, and hopefully seeing it grow faster than anything else in your portfolio, you will begin to want to learn more about it. It is volatile, and will remain so until its market cap gets to around half ($6 trillion) the market cap of gold, at which point the volatility should smooth out considerably.

Between now and then, expect big swings, up and down. If holding for the long term, I would dollar cost average in, and not worry about the dips, because the long term trend is up.

Having just a tiny bit invested is one way to finally go down the rabbit hole, and learn about what Bitcoin really is, the who, what, where, when, why and how of Bitcoin. By having a little, it stays on your radar, and you will want to learn more about it.

With just 1 share, the most you could possibly lose is $57.62

But if the MSM is wrong about Bitcoin, and Michael Saylor, and Fidelity (and Blackrock) are right about Bitcoin, and you see your little seed investment grow, and you learn enough about it to gain confidence and plant more seeds, it could be life-changing.

That seems like a pretty good risk-to-reward ratio, to me 🙂

“That theology is described as systematic reveals the apostasy.”


I’m not familiar with ‘systematic theology’, but I was thinking about her article today, and it occurred to me that it must be some kind of prank article. Maybe it fooled the people at American Thinker, so they published it.

Because it really is that bad, like a hit piece told through the perspective of Babylon Bee, starting with getting the name of the man who is the subject of the article wrong (in the very first sentence, so nobody can miss it).

The rest of it is just loony, to the point of either being intentionally insulting (while knowing better), or it’s just a good old fashioned smear-job psy-op to make people look like nutters, like they did (and do) with ‘Q-Anon’.


Maybe the mis-naming was deliberate. An insurance policy against a slander suit. By getting the name wrong, the author can plausibly claim the piece is a parody or social satire.


Wouldn’t that be too cowardly by orders of magnitude, for a mainstream publication to publish?

Besides that, she does use the correct last name throughout, and specifically identifies the last name as the executive chairman of MicroStrategy, so I’m not sure what kind of slander protection it would provide.

And if it is parody or social satire, and American Thinker is publishing it straight up as a legitimate article, then American Thinker is damaging their own reputation in the process, or they’ve been fooled by Ms. Voshell, in which case Fay Voshell could be on the receiving end of lawsuits from Michael Saylor and American Thinker 😂


C’mon, man — that’s just his name until Nikki Haley gets around to renaming him….

In very unexpected news today, rudely contradicting the ever-present MSM narrative 😂


comment image



People question everything except what they agree with.


So the MSM (mainstream media!) narrative about EVs is published here practically every day, and you don’t question that, you believe it, because you agree with it.

But when I post something contrary to the MSM narrative — the very same MSM that we don’t trust for anything else, except, apparently, for EV news — something you don’t agree with, you don’t believe it.

You believe the MSM when you agree with it (e.g., about EVs), and you don’t believe anything that contradicts the MSM narrative, because you don’t believe that.

And then you say “People question everything except what they agree with” implying that I am doing what you are doing, which is textbook, practically the definition of psychological projection?

And you don’t see that…?

Is there a way to verify that we are in the same universe, and not alternate universes, which occasionally intersect?


I’m not sure, it was reported by my crypto youtube guy at InvestAnswers (see logo in lower left hand corner, I left it in the cropped screenshot for identification).

My crypto youtube guy is not some internet yahoo, he is a former currency trader for a major bank in Europe for 20+ years (maybe 30 years, I forget which).

He is from the U.K., and lives in California now. He is obviously conservative by his growing open attacks on the Left, which he tries to reign in, because it’s not even a political channel, but politics affects the markets, and he obviously cares about that.

He makes most of his money using options on stocks (like MicroStrategy), because he understands it and is very good at it. He doesn’t recommend it at all to others, unless they know exactly what they are doing, because options can be risky.

He publishes all of his trades to his email list at the moment he makes them. He has several models that he has developed, using commercially available (for pay) data, and makes those models available to subscribers.

He is transparent in everything he does, and in watching him for over two years now, I haven’t found him lying about anything yet, or even being deceitful.

He is professionally retired, and works harder than ever now, trading his own accounts and teaching others. He’s like a machine. Hardly ever sleeps. Sets his alarm to wake up at 12am and 3am and 6am to check various markets around the world. Lives a very regimented lifestyle. Very dedicated, very good at what he does.

He has been at it long enough, and has a large enough subscriber base, that he has secured interviews with many of the well known names in the crypto and stock investment area (it’s hard for me to use the trendy word ‘space’), including Michael (not James!) Saylor:


He seems to be very careful about data and research and facts, because he has a lot of his own money (many millions) riding on the data.

We had to try them to see if they worked well enough. They don’t

Look for that number to plummet in the next few years.


“We had to try them to see if they worked well enough. They don’t”


Now we’re getting somewhere!

How many EVs have you tried?

Were any of them Teslas?


“Look for that number to plummet in the next few years.”


But the trend line is still up. It’s up from 7.1% last year to 7.8% this year, that’s an increase of 10% year over year, at the same time the entire Mainstream Media complex is telling us EV sales are falling off a cliff.

These two things cannot be in total contradiction, and both be true.

If the trend is growing at 10% year over year, that’s going to have to slow down first, and then stop (remain flat) for a time, and then reverse, before the numbers can begin to plummet.

He makes a good point. Perhaps some Dem backers do so without fully understanding the demonic control of the DNC and party supporters in general. But it is hard to argue that they should be able to see it easily just through the Dems platform that refutes the natural laws the Creator provided the earth and its inhabitants. At some point long ago they should realize they are aiding and abetting the wrong team.


It’s a harsh point, but ultimately true, I think. When the Democrat party pushes abortion, child mutilation, non-binary gender, and homosexual marriage, I think you can pretty much rule out emulating Jesus, which is what being Christian is.


As I have said for years, the D-rat party supports and promotes every kind of sin under the sun. I can’t think of a sin the D-rat party doesn’t either promote or actively engage in themselves.

D-rats promote murder, rape and enslavement via human trafficking, which Brandon policies are clearly designed to encourage and facilitate. They gleefully promote not just abortion up to the moment of birth, but D-rats are actually trying to promote abortion up to the age of 3 years old, as if that wouldn’t be murder either 😂

D-rats promote every sexual perversion imaginable, including butchering children to make them trannys, pedophilia and bestiality (and Drag Queen Story Hour for children).

It’s just positively insane, like they’re in a constant game of ‘one-up’ with Sodom & Gomorrah.

Obviously I could go on for pages, like everyone else here could.

How does any democrat, who claims to be a Christian, pretend not to see any that, and support the D-rat party?

What happens?

Ima guess that unless they can figure out a way to take it with them… they’re gonna spend a lot of it 👍

And that’s going to keep inflation higher, no matter how high interest rates go.

Because older people with $75 trillion in assets and a shortened (perceived) time horizon aren’t borrowing money anyway, they’re spending it — so higher interest rates will have no impact on their spending.

Brilliant analysis.

Seems to have a full grasp of the absurdity and lawlessness of it all.

Still doing nothing to stop it, not even proposing anything to stop it.

Not one little thing.

If there was a literal Iron Curtain closing on the West, people would be calling it like a horse race… “And at the wire, it’s Lock Me Up in Chains Forever by a furlong! It wasn’t even a contest, folks! The day that freedom died. And that brings us to the end of horse racing in the free world, and the end of everything else in the free world, as we bid you goodnight from the Gulag“.

It’s not even going out with a whimper.

It never even occurred to me that it could be so pathetic. It doesn’t seem like most people are even paying attention. It’s like the end of freedom is just some boring administrative matter that nobody cares about.

How does someone pretend like they’re a disinterested observer, talking about the utter destruction of freedom AS HE SPEAKS, and toss it off like it’s nothing?

No anger. No passion. No grief. No anything.

Just analysis, with a bit of sarcasm.

There are no Gandhi types. No Lech Wałęsa types. No one like the brave unknown man who stood up to the tanks at Tienanmen Square. No Patrick Henry “Give me liberty or give me death” declaration of defiance and resolve.

Nothing at all.

Just pathetic ho-hum acceptance.

Never in my life did I expect so many people would respond like this.

Trump is fighting, running a political campaign to nowhere if the Crims pull off another cheat, but humanity can’t just put the weight of the entire world on DJT’s shoulders and say “You take care of it.”

It’s really unbelievable.

Yup. They just get worse and worse. The threat of PRISON is what keeps people from acting – even PEACEFUL PROTEST. Even TESTIFYING against the Bidens.

And there is no guarantee that you ever come out, because these people are EVIL.

Or this…..

Things are BAD and nobody dares to be the first to blink.

I’m still waiting for them to try to haul me off to jail. It could happen any time that the Bidenoids tell DODGE to tell FIB to go after me.

The way they SELECTIVELY went after the “Blaze” journalist – I mean – wow. We’re here. We ARE here.


“The threat of PRISON is what keeps people from acting – even PEACEFUL PROTEST. Even TESTIFYING against the Bidens.And there is no guarantee that you ever come out, because these people are EVIL.”


If that is the problem, then the solution seems obvious.

Stop caring.

Isn’t that what every man in such a position ultimately has to settle on, in his own heart and mind? Isn’t that what our Founding Fathers had to do? To stop caring what the British might do to them?

If you don’t care what they do to you, then they may stop you, but they won’t stop the next guy, or the woman after him, or the child after them, etc.

They can’t stop everybody, if everybody withdraws the consent of the governed.

Obviously not everyone is going to be willing to “not care” what happens to them, but lots of people would, the moment being a freedom fighter becomes “a thing”.

It’s exciting, it’s dangerous, it may be the first cause most people of this generation have ever experienced that was actually worth dying for.

It’s the stuff of legend and stories throughout time immemorial.

All that’s needed is a leader who is a big enough threat to the creation of such a movement that the Crims are afraid to make him a martyr.

And so long as they don’t make him a martyr, the movement grows. If it grows big enough, making him a martyr doesn’t end the movement, it ends the people who made him a martyr.

So it’s like Game Theory, like everything else.

But we can’t win the game if we won’t play.

Scotland is going COMPLETELY ‘WOKE’

“”Children and Young People (Scotland) Act” of 2014

What happened to the named person scheme? – BBC News

What is a named person?

The government’s proposal was to appoint a “named person” who would monitor the wellbeing of each and every child in Scotland, from birth to the age of 18.

The intention was for this person to be a single point of contact if a child or their parents wanted information, support or advice, and for other services if they had concerns about the child’s wellbeing.

The named person would generally be a senior teacher, health visitor or midwife, depending on the age of the child.

The government said this was “a good policy to support the wellbeing of children and young people”.

However, opponents of the scheme argued that it was a “Big Brother” style “snooper’s charter”, which would undermine parents and breach privacy….

The scheme was part of the Children and Young People Act of 2014, a fairly wide-ranging piece of legislation which also included provision for free school meals for younger pupils and extra help for looked-after children.

The bill was passed with the support of almost all MSPs – the SNP, Labour, the Lib Dems and Greens all backed it, while the Conservatives abstained rather than vote against.

The named person scheme was originally meant to be rolled out across Scotland in 2016, but found itself tied up in legal challenges by campaigners, who pursued it all the way to the UK Supreme Court.

This came to a head in July 2016, when judges ruled against it. While they said the aims of the bill were “unquestionably legitimate and benign”, they raised concerns about specific parts of the named person scheme.

Holyrood passes revised bill on children’s rights — Groiniad

Campaigners, politicians and young people who led grassroots efforts to put international children’s rights standards at the heart of Scottish law are celebrating the passing of a landmark Holyrood bill.

The Scottish parliament voted unanimously on Thursday afternoon for Scotland to become the first devolved nation to incorporate the UN charter on the rights of the child (UNCRC) into domestic law.

Nearly 1,000 days after a challenge by the Westminster government threatened to derail the incorporation bill, the cabinet secretary for social justice, Shirley-Anne Somerville, told MSPs that the legislation would “change the way we think about children’s rights” and provide “everyday accountability … across public services in Scotland”.

The UNCRC grants all people under the age of 18 a comprehensive set of rights – including rights to health, education, family life, play and recreation, and protection from abuse and harm – and sets a legal requirement for all public authorities to comply with them. Scotland was in breach of the convention until November 2020, when it banned the physical punishment of children….

Valerie Curren

It’s ALL In-sane  😡 

Gail Combs

It all depends on whether your view point is that the individual should serve the State or whether the State is there to protect the rights of the individual. It really is that simple.

If you believe the State should be served by the individual you have Sparta:
Ancient Spartan Communism

..Plutarch’s description is of interest because, waiving the question of its historical accuracy, it gives a very adequate definition of the ideal communistic state, as ideally imagined by countless later generations. In general, he says,


…he trained his fellow-citizens to have neither the wish nor the ability to live for themselves; but like bees they were to make themselves always integral parts of the whole community, clustering together about their leader, almost beside themselves with enthusiasm and noble ambition, and to belong wholly to their country.

[end quote]

…the Spartan state was probably unique in some respects in the record of political institutions. It is difficult to recall any other state in which the individual was so completely subordinated to the general ends of the community — and such subordination is, of course, of the very essence of socialism in its general sense, as distinguished from that species of socialism generally referred to as communism. From the day of his birth, when he might be not merely subordinated but suppressed for the good of the state, the young Spartan continued to be disposed of in one way or another until death opened up for him a way of escape. The common education, which began at the age of seven, was wholly designed to make good soldiers, to teach men to suffer uncomplainingly the extremes of heat and of cold, of hunger and of pain, and in each was implanted the conviction that he belonged not to himself, but to the state.

This type of attitude toward the treatment of fellow humans as nothing more than cattle (chattel) is reiterated centuries later by Fabian Co-founder George Bernard Shaw.

“We should find ourselves committed to killing a great many people whom we now leave living, and to leave living a great many people whom we at present kill. We should have to get rid of all ideas about capital punishment …

A part of eugenic politics would finally land us in an extensive use of the lethal chamber. A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people’s time to look after them.”

Source: George Bernard Shaw, Lecture to the Eugenics Education Society, Reported in The Daily Express, March 4, 1910.


“The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”

Source: George Bernard Shaw, Prefaces (London: Constable and Co., 1934), p. 296.


“Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. <b>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.”</b>

George Bernard Shaw: The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, 1928, pg. 470)

Valerie Curren

These views are very anti-biblical & anti-God, imo. What a tragedy to just be a commodity to overlords who care not about whether you live or die or self-direct your own existence one iota. Those also seem- to be extremely anti-American views as well, at least America as founded not as subverted by aka BHO & his sock puppet FJB/LGB 🙁

Gail Combs

Yes, down right SATANIC.

Valerie Curren



Wait, does this mean that a 10-year-old in Scotland can drag his/her parents into court if Mother and Dad refuse to let the child eat junk food?
What about the 16-year-old who wants a new car and is told by the parents that the child will have to earn at least some percentage of the money to pay for it?
The list is endless!

Gail Combs


Or the kid who sleeps around and then accuses Dad of raping her. (Happened to a family I know.)


It’s amazing how many daddy rape accusations first show up in divorce court. But never seem to survive a police investigation.


People will likely be afraid to say or share anything. This quells all speech that is not approved.

Stripe, Substack Demand Financial Details from Authors

….Under the guise of “credit review”, Stripe is now rolling out a requirement that appears to target conservative or “anti-vax” Substack authors. Stripe is requiring that these authors provide all of their current and historic financial records associated with the bank account into which Stripe deposits Substack subscriber payments (after taking 10% off the top for Substack and 3% for Stripe). Stripe already has information concerning this bank account (including deposits from Stripe), as we have been doing business with Stripe via this account for over two years.

If I or anyone else agree to these new terms, this newly implemented arbitrary, capricious and overreaching requirement will provide Stripe with complete records of all financial transactions associated with this account. Consequently, this will provide Stripe with comprehensive information on all of my customers, patients and clients, all of my travel (historic and planned), all of my purchases, and any donations (and donor information). This information from my account and those of any others who comply with this demand can be hacked or sold, provided to the US Government, used to fuel predictive algorithms (AI), used to derive insights into my political orientation, weaponized against me by press or other hostile actors, or used to support future social credit score-based restrictions….

Dr Malone, you do what I did when the company I worked for OPENED AN ACCT IN MY NAME in the bank one of the Board members owned. I had no choice. That is where my salary was deposited. So I immediately transferred the money to MY bank — F..CK’EM! (You just have to find a bank that YOU can trust not to knife you in the back.)

Back then in the 1970s there was still real ‘fractional’ reserve. So for every $100 dollars the bank had from customers, they could lend out $100 + $X dollars and collect interest on all of it PLUS be repaid $X in REAL money earned by the person repaying the loan.

That is the reason ALL employees were FORCED to do business with that bank.


None of their business.

Gail Combs

Of Course, however if they DO go that route and you still want to use Substack, then you transfer all funds.

Actually at this point I would anyway. We have found that banks were very happy to turn over info without warrants to the FIB. So you need to be careful about what bank you use.

2024 Ford F-250: A Primitive, Powerful Beast of a Truck

Please note that I have been driving OLD diesels for over four decades. BOTH my parents died of cancer. I am now older than they were when they died.

…Ford’s primeval V8 is best understood by what it’s not: a diesel. Since Dieselgate in 2015, diesel propulsion has been in retreat all over the world, pressured by rising fuel costs—in the U.S., currently about 50 cents higher per gallon on average than gasoline—and the expense of emissions compliance. Look under any new turbodiesel pickup and you will see yards of exhaust plumbing, a daisy chain of aftertreatment devices including catalytic converters, particulate filters and diesel fluid (DEF) injectors.

  :wpds_arrow: The breathing public wouldn’t want it any other way. Diesel exhaust is rich in nitrous oxide and fine particulates, both hazardous pollutants that kill thousands every year. California is intent on banning all diesel truck sales by 2035.

But, as a consequence, the premium for diesel power has skyrocketed. In the case of our test truck, the cheapest diesel option adds $10,000 to the price. That’s a bitter pill for independent operators, farmers and truck-based businesses…

I am sorry but I can not let this complete BULL SCHIFF STAND. THINK what getting rid of diesel semis actually does.It gets you are a step closer to Smart Cities using ONLY food from the surrounding area– Cornell’s ‘food shed’ idea.


THE REAL STORY! H/T to Steve Mallory and his website JunkScience.

CARB is the California regulations.

EPA Used 10-Year Old Children in Illegal Diesel Exhaust Experiments

…Based on documents received by means of FOIA during 2012, reported that the EPA had for many years conducted illegal scientific experiments in which human study subjects were intentionally exposed to air pollutants the EPA considered lethal at any dose or exposure. These experiments were deemed illegal for two basic reasons: (1) Federal regulations prohibit EPA researchers from placing human study subjects at risk of death; and (2) EPA failed to disclose to the study subjects that their participation in the experiments entailed a risk of death. The EPA Office of Inspector General validated these findings in a March 2014 report.

…the children in the experiment were exposed to diesel exhaust dose via nasal spray as high as 300 micrograms — 60 times higher than the EPA’s allowable exposure standard….


EPA and CARB have both determined that diesel exhaust is lethal, carcinogenic and otherwise toxic.

  :wpds_arrow: 𝗘𝗣𝗔’𝘀 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗠𝟮.𝟱 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗼𝗻𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗹 𝗲𝘅𝗵𝗮𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗱𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝘂𝗯𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗸𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻 𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀. While disagrees with this characterization, EPA and CARB nonetheless regulate diesel exhaust and PM2.5 on this basis.

For the purposes of EPA’s human experiments, if diesel exhaust is deadly when it comes from an exhaust pipe, then it is also deadly in a medical clinic and science laboratory. Regulators says there is no safe exposure to diesel exhaust and, for the purposes of discussing human experiments, we take them at their word….

FACT SHEET: EPA’s Claim That Its Coal Plant CO2 Rules Will Save Lives By Reducing Particulate Matter Emissions Is False
EPA’s position is that that:

  • ANY inhalation of PM2.5 can cause death;
  • Death from PM2.5 may occur within hours of inhalation (i.e., “short-term” or literally “sudden death”) and that;
  • Long-term (i.e., years or decades) exposure to PM2.5 can cause premature death.

Scientific Reality: PM2.5 does not kill anyone. The EPA’s claims of PM2.5 lethality rank among the most nonsensical, fraudulent and readily disprovable scientific claims ever.
EPA’s three bodies of research. EPA claims the PM2.5-mortality hypothesis is supported by existing epidemiology, toxicology and clinical studies. This is false.

  • Epidemiology. EPA admitted in federal court that its epidemiologic studies on PM2.5 prove nothing by themselves. In 2012 litigation in which EPA attempted to justify its experiments on humans with PM2.5, EPA admitted doing the experiments because: “epidemiologic studies do not generally provide evidence of direct causation.” The purpose of the human experiments, according to EPA, was to develop a medical or biological explanation (i.e., the direct causation) that would support the merely statistical (and, by the way, controversial) results of the PM2.5 epidemiology studies.
  • Toxicology. No laboratory animal has ever died from PM2.5 in an experimental setting — even though animals have been exposed to levels of PM2.5 as much as 100+ times greater than human exposures to PM2.5 in outdoor air.
  • Clinical studies. EPA has tested a variety of air pollutants — including very high exposures to PM2.5 — on over 6,000 human volunteers. Many of these volunteers were elderly or already health-compromised — the very groups EPA claims are most susceptible to dying from PM2.5 exposures. EPA has admitted that there have been no deaths or any dangerous adverse events clearly caused by these PM2.5 exposures. PM2.5 exposures in these experiments have been as high as 21 times greater than allowable by EPA’s own air quality rules.

EPA’s claim about PM2.5 causing death is not supported by the results from these research disciplines, individually or collectively.
Real-world evidence that PM2.5 does not cause sudden or long-term death. Everyone is constantly and unavoidably exposed to PM2.5 from both natural and manmade sources. Natural sources include dust, pollen, mold, pet dander, forest fires, sea spray and volcanoes. Manmade sources primarily are smoking, fossil fuel burning, industrial processes, wood stoves, fireplaces and indoor cooking. Indoor exposures to PM2.5 can easily exceed outdoor exposures — by as much as a factor of 100.
Although EPA claims that almost 25% of annual U.S. deaths are caused by PM2.5, no death has ever been medically attributed to PM2.5.


I live in a brutally cold climate, and everybody around here who needs a high-powered pickup truck drives a diesel.

Diesel engines have special starters. You have to turn them on for a while before you start the truck. Then people just leave them running while they do stuff like go into the store.


Yes, I and many others think they are, mainly because the engines last much longer.

Gail Combs

MUCH longer😍

My 1992 is still going strong. (A good mechanic helps)

Gail Combs

Are diesels really cheaper in the long run.

My 1992 has over a million miles on it.

The fuel may cost more but my 6 cylinder diesel gets 22 mpg when not hauling and between 12 and 18 mpg hauling. My SMALL 8 cylinder gas with a 4 barrel carburetor gets around 10 – 12 mpg and when hauling 5 -7 mpg.

Fuel injected 350s get around 14 mpg.


I have a Grand Cherokee diesel – rare, took me forever to find one with low mileage, 40K when we bought it. 6 cylinder, we’ve had it up to 32 on the highway – not pulling anything but 2 adults, suitcases etc. And that’s with a 25 gallon fuel tank and 8 gallons of DEF. Get’s 25+ around town.

I would never, and I mean never own an electric vehicle. I enjoy using the heat and AC – and not constantly worrying about whether I have the range to get someplace. 😂

Gail Combs

With the tank in the bed, our 1993 Dually has a 100 gal capacity. It was actually set up as a commercial vehicle for towing trailers with truck caps. (Also has a 5th wheel) It was in an accident, totaled and rehabilitated. We got it for a song.

We do not use it as much as the 3/4 ton.


Wow. 100 gallons! That truck sounds impressive. I only mentioned my tank size since we also have to haul around the dumbass exhaust fluid. 🙄 There’s a separate place for the DEF nozzle, next to the regular fuel fill. I never fill it at a station – it uses so little that I just get it at AutoZone and our mechanic adds it with an oil change. Comes in 2 gallons, with a plastic nozzle. It’s all just so much BS.

Gail Combs

That 100 gal tank was great when we moved from Boston to NC. we could fill up in the cheapest place and then do the entire tripthru BoNyWash.

(We made several trips using our own trailers)


Agreed regarding the plan to force everyone into “15-minute cities” — except for the “elite class”, who will go wherever and whenever they want; or, for people who will pay for “travel permits” that “allow” them to move further than the 15-minute limit.
And, I believe there’s something else in the plan — to eliminate farmer’s markets and even home gardens / home raising of poultry — and substitute a “Soviet-style” type of “state-owned supermarket” where everybody has to shop for fod (except, of course, for the “elite class”, which will be able to secure food from all kinds of places.)
In other words, more population control — via limiting the ability to travel (freedom to move around), which will negatively effect emotional, and, eventually, emotional/psychological health; and, via limiting food choices to only what the State “permits” people to buy and to eat (depriving them of the freedom to buy food from other places, and/or to grow it in their own yards.)

We already have the federal law in place to ‘Regulate the Tomato in your back yard’

“….or the little people is not always practical, especially for the guys driving F250s selling firewood and plowing snow in the subdivisions. It gets too cold, and a diesel engine just isn’t practical….”

As someone who lived in NH and had a diesel PK-up I beg to differ. My diesel started and I had to jump start all the gas powered cars at my Apartment Complex when it got down to minus forty.

My Diesels all have plug-in engine block heaters and there is a winterizer that is added to diesel fuel so it does not gel.

Appeals Court Puts Controversial Texas Immigration Law Back On Hold

CNN link…

5th Circuit Court of Appeals

3-judge panel

voted 2-1 to “wipe away” the S Ct ruling.


Gail Combs

Well if they can “wipe away” that Supreme Court ruling, then OTHER courts can wipe out OTHER Supreme Court Rulings…

Commerce clause…
Pending First Amendment….

pat frederick

i am trying hard to understand how a LOWER court can supersede the SUPREME COURT!



nobody wants to touch the hot mess

Gail Combs

I realize that.

I am just taking their idiocy to its logical conclusion.

Be careful what you wish for… (Snicker)


Because the Supreme Court wrote it into their stupid ruling!

“The Supreme Court allowed Texas to enforce SB 4 and gave back the legal decision to the lower appeals court. Three justices — Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson — dissented the decision.”


pat frederick

thanks aubergine!
i understand now…i don’t like it, but i understand …lol


They didn’t wipe away the SCOTUS ruling.

SCOTUS vacated the preliminary injunction, which restored the case to its status when it arrived at the Fifth Circuit. So the 5th just repeated what it did before. Next, Trump’s attorneys will seek a writ in SCOTUS. The writ will order a specific result from the Fifth Circuit [most likely a result that allows the law to operate].

well then bueno ceesco… close all mexican points of entry, immediately !

nothig & no one enters the USA from mexico, under any circumstances.

pat frederick

i believe that would be the proper response.
whatever they are importing–we will be forced to make ourselves–and they will be forced to sell somewhere else


cars !


I do not buy their fruit or vegetables. My thought is if I cannot drink Mexican water why buy their produce ? I have had that thought for years.


When I lived in central California our house was in the middle of acres of rotating crops, lettuce, berries, broccoli. I can say…wash all fruits and vegetables well! It’s usually a long walk to the porta potty.


Ugh that is dangerous. I wash with a vegetable wash and soak everything . When I grew up they used manure on the fields washing was a must.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy



Bingo 🙂

Gail Combs

Build a ‘Prison camp’ with VERY HIGH WALLS and ARMED GUARDS on the American side and nothing on the Mexican side. Toss water and supplies in daily and let them fight over them. They will SELF DEPORT.

Remember they COMMITTED A CRIME by coming into the USA ILLEGALLY. Indict convict TATTOO on the FOREHEAD and sent to that prison camp.

I have suggested that for YEARS. 😡


I know it’s not meant to be funny but “toss water and supplies in daily” made me laugh. Solid plan though.

Gail Combs

Actually it was meant to be funny.


Just change the locale:


Mexico understands that almost none of these people walked through their country. They were driven or flown hundreds or thousands of miles by NGOs so being tossed back into Mx means they will have no way to go “home”.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Deport the BIDEN CRIME FAMILY to the cartels there. Let those criminals deliver the final justice.


Just drop them in. Use parachutes if necessary. Fuck Mexico.

pat frederick

agreed–we gave them favored trading status–they give us illegals


Maybe it is time to close the boarder and hold all trade with Mexico. I need nothing from them.

“FLYNN : Deliver The Truth. Whatever The Cost”🚨The Raiklin Report🚨

@ 25:32 – 26 min Ivan mentions a wall in the General Flynn movie that was his brainchild. It is similar to the Gen Beck Chalk boards.
“….that is ‘The Wall’ and you are not seeing the whole thing. From 2010 to basically today. Of all the incestuous relationships that were involved in the weaponization against Flynn. WE HAVE ALL THE RECIEPTS. And we are coming for them like you would not believe. Because we are going to educate the country on who they are. And they are not going to be able to WALK in the streets of America…”

THAT explains why the Supreme Court (or at least some justices) wants to ALLOW the Totalitarian Government to suppress FREE SPEECH.


At the beginning Ivan says:
3:10 -3:40 (Ivan first covers the Fedsurrection instigators) “… and Oh by the way, my good friend who has ghosted me, Steve Baker, FINALLY FINALLY, realizes the Capitol Police are the ones behind HIS political persecution and every single other Jan 6th Defendant. FINALLY, I can had the baton over to someone else to go start working that problem….”

Back story with ‘progressive-commie take’
Who is Steve Baker and why has his arrest sparked MAGA outrage? Here’s full story

…The arrest of Baker, an investigative reporter for conservative news outlet Blaze Media, has sparked controversy, with some calling it an attack on free press.

Few others, like Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy have condemned Baker’s detention, claiming it infringes free press. However, many suggest that his actions went beyond mere reporting and that he actively participated in the chaos.

In a post on X, Blaze media said shared a video of Baker’s arrest, showing him in handcuffs….

Nothing like getting slapped upside the head by reality to wake you up!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

If they can arrest Baker, they can arrest Prog “journalist” John Nichols, a.k.a. “Scaffold Commander” – who exhorted people to go into the Capitol.

Gail Combs

Yeah, but ONLY if he is NOT a Progressive Asset. As Ivan Raiklin pointed out it is the prosecutor/lawyer associated with the Capital Police who determine who gets nailed NOT the FBI.


Baker did nothing wrong he did what a journalist is supposed to do.

Gail Combs

Correct. Note Piglosi’s pet journo got $$$ not a prison sentence.
