Consent of the Governed?

What gives some people the right to rule others? At least since John Locke’s time, the most common and seemingly compelling answer has been “the consent of the governed.” When the North American revolutionaries set out to justify their secession from the British Empire, they declared, among other things: “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.” This sounds good,...

Fear Is Contagious and Used To Control You

Governments are using fear to control and manipulate their citizens. That has now been admitted by members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behavior (SPI-B), a subcommittee that advises the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) in the U.K. And they should know, because they advocated for it, and now say it was a regrettable mistake. As reported by The Telegraph, May 14, 2021:1 “Scientists on a...

In Defense of Debt Collection

You know hypocrisy, as when the pot calls the kettle black? Well, this news report gives new meaning to the idea: The rise in American consumer debt has been accompanied by a sharp increase in complaints about aggressive and sometimes unscrupulous tactics by debt collection agencies, a phenomenon that has government regulators increasingly concerned. So the government is concerned about rough tactics, huh? Try skipping out...

How the Trilateral Commission Drove a Bankers’ Coup Across America

Until recently I had believed like many that Jimmy Carter is not your typical politician. Standing out from the vast array of sellouts and establishment hacks, the ex-President has often appeared as the lone voice of reason in America’s establishment calling out the injustices of American military, the wrongs of the Zionist lobby and the self-destructive nature of the American oligarchy. Surely a man who speaks so candidly...

Here Comes Global Cooling

I wrote this piece on May 10, 2011. It was a look back at 1975 media coverage of global weather: Inventing media reality Here comes global cooling May 10, 2011 I offer this piece, not to dig into the science, but to show how strong the media effect is. Thirty-five years ago, newspapers and magazines were drumming up support for a global cooling scare. Notice the language in this April 28, 1975, Newsweek article, “The Cooling...

A Group Of Parents Sent Their Kids’ Face Masks to a Lab for Analysis. Here’s What They Found

We’ve been told for well over a year that widespread forced public masking should be implemented because, even if only moderately to slightly to negligibly effective at curbing the spread of COVID-19, there are ZERO drawbacks. “What’s the harm?” they ask. “It’s only a minor inconvenience,” they bleat. “If it saves ONE LIFE, it’s worth it!” they implore. Meanwhile, we on Team Reality have not only continued to point to...

Trust Lacking at Blah Summit

Aside from establishing face-to-face contact between the the two presidents, the Biden-Putin summit today met only the most modest expectations of those hoping for improved ties between the U.S. and Russia. By the same token, weapons makers and others profiteering on tension with Russia, and living in fear of a thaw in bilateral relations, can now breathe a sigh of relief. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov’s appearance on...

Rat-Fink on Your Neighbors; But Not on BLM/Antifa

The Federal government and all of its security agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.), that are known for infiltrating any counterinsurgency groups in the US (planted a ratfink inside of PROUD BOYS) and certainly must have all of the license plate and identities of every member of Antifa and Black Lives Matter that have wreaked havoc amounting to $1+ billion of damage to 25 American cities, now asks Americans to rat on anyone who...

Biden’s Buffoonish War On ‘Extremism’

The Biden administration revealed on Tuesday that guys who can’t get laid may be terrorist threats due to “involuntary celibate–violent extremism.” That revelation is part of a new crackdown that identifies legions of potential “domestic terrorists” that the feds can castigate and investigate. But there is no reason to expect Biden administration anti-terrorism and anti-extremism efforts to be less of a farce and menace than...

The John Lewis Act Is the Dems’ Path to Permanent Power

The official position of Fox News is that the Democrats’ John Lewis vote-stealing bill is “narrower” than the Democrats’ “For the People” vote-stealing bill. (This will be an exhibit in my museum titled, “Stupid People Can Never Help Your Cause.”) Yes, it’s “narrower” in the sense of being 1 MILLION times worse. The John Lewis bill will do everything the “For the People” bill does — and so much more! They just don’t tell us...
