Change Sex But Not Weight

Change Sex But Not Weight –Today’s question: Why do our academic and media authorities say one can change one’s sex but not one’s body weight?

Anyone? Anyone?

The links we gave to articles defending these practices are written authoritatively using objective language.

For this nation to be saved it is imperative to understand that just because something is written or said authoritatively doesn’t make it true.

A litmus test is to watch the dissenters. If allowed voice, shoddy logic will be exposed. A perfect recent example is Ye’s “I heart Hitler” appearance on Alex Jones.

Kudos to Alex. It’s one big reason why he should not be scrubbed from society.

If dissenters are gaslit and shouted down, however, the odds start getting high they are in the right.

It doesn’t mean they are but one can’t fault those on the sidelines for thinking that.

Also be suspicious of those who speak authoritatively. In other words . . .

Shout Out To PatriotOnline

Shout Out To PatriotOnline — Elon has taken Twitter and fired the bullies. The guy formerly known as Kanye West is buying Parler. Donald Trump’s TruthSocial is soaring and Gab is maturing.

October 2022 is a good month for free speech.

We’d like to give a shout out to Greg Stenstrom’s social media site Patriot.Online.

It’s interesting, intelligent, easy to use and has a strong Philadelphia-region flavor.

Meanwhile, the place formerly known as Facebook, is collapsing. Being a censorious, hypocritical wannabe tyrant really doesn’t pay in the end, does it Kommissar?

And we’ll take our share of the credit.

Assange And Free Speech Defended At D.C. Rally

Assange And Free Speech Defended At D.C. Rally

By Bob Small

Speaking about the oath he took when he joined the Marines, Scott Ritter said “Not that I will defend the President no matter what, but that I will defend the Constitution.”

Ritter was one of the many speakers, Sunday, Oct. 8 in D.C. front of the Department of Justice. 

Whether this is now the Department of Injustice is a topic for another discussion. 

We, the audience and the speakers, and the still independent media were here to show support for  Julian Assange — the rally was named Hands Off Assange after all– and to defend what we have left of a free press.

Three of us had driven from Swarthmore, Pa to Washington, DC and attended our first DC rally in however many years.

We had attending many rallies getting both arrested and even injured for various causes. 

Assange And Free Speech Defended At D.C. Rally

At a certain point, I found myself repeating Admiral James Stockdale’s line,“Who am I and what am I doing here”.

When I could no longer find grace in going to these events, it seemed like there was no real reason to go.

So why return?  There are many reasons including defending the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

The very blog you’re reading is covered by this, as are all blogs in the USA no matter how much with them you may disagree.

Britain is only now about enshrine free speech in a Bill of Rights.

Boris Johnson first proposed it and became a good argument for it.

If we are not activists for the rights in our Bill of Rights, they revert to only being words.

As to the rally itself, most of the hundred or so people remained till the end encouraged, no doubt, by the free ice cream provided by one of the speakers, Ben Cohen who is the Ben in Ben and Jerrys.

Vimeo Cancels UNJABBED, A Short Dystopian Cartoon Drama

Vimeo Cancels UNJABBED, A Short Dystopian Cartoon Drama — Vimeo has cancelled UNJABBED, an animated work of dystopian fiction by
Ken Avidor.

Vimeo claimed Avidor’s work:

  • Conveys false or misleading health-related information that has a serious potential to cause public harm
  • Perpetuates false or misleading claims about vaccine safety
  • Claims that the Coronavirus is a hoax or promotes various other conspiracy theories around the virus

It’s fiction.

And an entertaining way of spending seven minutes.

Amazingly it remains on YouTube.

Here’s the first episode.

Steve Kirsch has links to all three episodes on his Substack page.

Watch it while you can. Odds are YouTube will be pulling it soon.

Why We Can’t Hate DuckDuckGo Too Much

Why We Can’t Hate DuckDuckGo Too Much — While Chesco’s DuckDuckGo is getting a lot of hate for its flirtation with wokism, we can’t bring ourselves to join in, at least too much.

Here are yesterday’s (April 17) referrals from search engines to this site.

Why We Can't Hate DuckDuckGo Too Much

The Duck is between a 10th and a 50th the size of Google yet it got us 12 times the finds as the corrupting crawler from California.

Just the same, we have switched to Brave. We’ve long used the browser but we are now using the search engine as well and we like it.

By the way, Ecosia.com, Qwant.com, Dogpile and AOL search engines combined got us more searches than Google.

Google does not give you what you look for but gives you what it wants. Avoid it at all costs.

DuckDuckGo Deserves Second Chance

DuckDuckGo Deserves Second Chance — DuckDuckGo’s head honcho Gabriel Weinberg shot off an unfortunate tweet, March 9, in which he declared the Duck would “down-rank sites associated with Russian disinformation.”

Free speech defenders are shouting treason and abandoning DDG for other search engines, mostly for the one affiliated with the Brave browser.

One stupid tweet does not a cancel make and we are sticking with DDG as it still gets our little site far more finds than much bigger, and far more evil, Google.

DuckDuckGo Deserves Second Chance
Gab Weinberg’s stupid tweet from March 9

Hopefully, Weinberg understands the ire, though, and grows a bit in his thinking.

The anger comes from a loss of trust.

Who’s to say what “disinformation” is? The New York Post reported in October 2020 that Hunter Biden’s laptop contained sexual misconduct and evidence of financial impropriety that involved China — and his father.

It was literally called “Russian disinformation” and the Post was banned from social media because of it.

Now, the story is pretty much confirmed. Ponder that Biden voters.

Are reports that a reason for the Russian invasion of the Ukraine was biolabs funded by the U.S. to avoid restrictions on domestic research true? A week ago we were mocking it, not so much here but in other places. Now, we are walking it back.

Frankly, we shouldn’t have mocked it in the first place considering how we early covered claims that the U.S. funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan lab from which Covid-19 is thought to have escaped.

Or twisted research in which beagles were tortured to death away from prying eyes.

That our tax money is going to foreign labs for experiments banned here ought to raise questions. It could very well mean that high-ranking American officials are guilty of crimes against humanity.

Hey Gabe, instead of hiding something, explain why you think things are untrue. You have the resources for research. Cite your sources and bring your receipts. Don’t be lazy and don’t pretend to debunk something that you can’t.

We are willing to give the Duck a second chance. For what it’s worth, we quickly found with it the link above to the Tucker Carlson story just using the keyword “biolab”.

And we are not dissing Brave. While we still think its search engine has a little ways to go, it is an excellent browser that we have been using for six years.

Censorship Always Backfires, Save Jesse

Censorship Always Backfires, Save Jesse

By Bob Small

Sometime in 2000, I received a t-Shirt from my daughter, then and now in Minneapolis (she said Philadelphia was too warm for her).  This t- Shirt had the map of Minnesota with the message “My Governor can beat your Governor”.  This was my introduction to then Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, former professional wrestler, and, prior to that, a member of the US Navy Underwater Demolition Team.

Years later, I discovered he had a podcast on ITunes entitled  “The World According to Jesse”.

I learned how to “burn” podcasts to CD’s. This became one of the few political podcasts we both enjoy listening to together in the car.

However, there’s always a however in life, this podcast was one of the ones on RT aka Russia Today, which is sponsored by Russia, as VOA (Voice of America) is sponsored by the US government.  Recently, due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Meta aka Facebook aka big media Google. etc, has banned RT from all it’s platforms, including ITunes.

Censorship Always Backfires, Save Jesse

However, RT can now be accessed via Rumble, soon to be the home of Truth Social.  

In a way, then, Vladmir Putin and Donald Trump will be, at least electronically, neighbors.

There are a number of reasons why this may not be as good an idea as it seems, leaving aside the first amendment rights of Jesse Ventura and other American presenters on RT.

“The act of censorship can have a totally counterproductive effect on the citizens who follow the banned media,”  said Ricardo Gutierrez, who is general secretary of the European Federation of Journalists. “In our opinion, it is always better to counteract the disinformation of propagandist or allegedly propagandist media by exposing their factual errors or bad journalism.”  

Secondly, neither BBC, Deutsche Welle (Germany), NPR or VOA make any pretense at objectivity.  All have their subjectivities.

Third, if both Mein Kampf  and The 1915 film Birth of a Nation are available at the click of a mouse, why not RT?

Also see podcast by TimcastIRL: https://rumble.com/vwe6o5-rt-rt-america-just-shut-down-lays-off-all-staff-leftists-gloat.html

And then today, my natal day, I discovered RT was again on all the online sites though without any reason for it’s resumption!  The internet seemed to be acting as if the banishment never happened!   That happens a lot on the internet.

DHS Calls Dissenters Terrorists

DHS Calls Dissenters Terrorists Alex Berenson is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security has issued a bulletin declaring that false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions a “terrorism threat to the United States”.

Leave the issue of establishing what is misleading aside, who exactly determines what is false?

Is it false to say Covid-19 may have come from a lab? The powers-that-be were insisting it was back in 2020. Now, it’s respectable to hold that view.

So a really smart person pointing this out would have been considered a terrorist by DHS if this had been the policy in 2020. Is that what you think America should be?

DHS Calls Dissenters Terrorists
Screenshot of DHS warning about speech

How about the claim that there was massive vote fraud in the 2020 election? You gonna get a kicked-in door some midnight for expressing this? Beware, Justice Michael Gableman.

And the Pennsylvania Senate, too, for that matter.

What is the problem with voting machine audits anyway? You would think the “progressive” media would be screaming to have election transparency take precedence over corporate IP.

At least until you realize that the “progressive” media is just a wolf in sheep’s clothing for our corporations.

Any of our readers think Jeffrey Epstein might not have committed suicide? Saying so would make you a terrorist in the eyes of the DHS as it would most certainly undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions as the U.S. government institutions most definitively declared Epstein’s death to be suicide.

Yes, there is false and misleading information being spread around the Web and the world, and it is a danger. Unfortunately much of it seems to come from the government or the establishment anyway.

Consider that laughing at this is now probably a terrorist act.

Internet Needs Better Rules, Not Stricter Referees

Internet Needs Better Rules, Not Stricter RefereesSubstack founders Chris Best and Hamish McKenzie just penned a wise and necessary critique of the existing paradigm of social media. The complete article can be found here.

The recent Facebook leaks have prompted a torrent of proposals for fixing social media’s harmful effects on society, including demands for more oversight by company executives, boards, or regulators. None of these addresses the core problem of the attention economy, which no amount of top-down control can fix.

The real problem is at the foundation: a business model that sells people’s attention to advertisers, which motivates companies to reward the content that most effectively manipulates people’s emotions. That in turn, because of the platforms’ scale and dominance, has knock-on effects for all of media, culture, and politics. The only path to a healthier internet is to build a new foundation, with a model that gives power back to people.

Social media giants already have too much control over discourse. They have user populations greater than the population of any country on earth, and their moderation policies affect many times more people than the First Amendment does. We should be wary of inviting these companies to referee discourse even more than they already do.

Instead, the key to a healthier platform is to flip the power dynamic: give the people themselves the power to choose what they pay attention to.

Visit here for the rest of the story.

Deep State Drag Net

Deep State Drag Net — Here is how to handle the mind-blowing, corrupt attempt to marginalize those who fully understand why the D.C. suburbs are among the richest places in the world and oppose lies, greed and general corruption in government and other institutions.

This meme that we found on Gab comes from a photo of suspected federal undercover officers at yesterday’s (Sept. 18) Justice for J6 rally.

Deep State Drag Net

The dresses, of course, are inspired by what Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) wore to the exclusive Sept. 13 Met Gala.

The rally was to call attention to the plight of those arrested for participation in the Jan. 6 protests at the Capitol and the disparity in their treatment with those who participated in far more violent actions last spring and summer.

President Trump and many others warned sympathizers to stay away yesterday as it was suspected to be a set up by the corrupt corporatists to continue the narrative that those who opposed them were violent extremists, “right wing” white supremacists, pick-your-hate-label.

Rally participants, who were beyond peaceful, appeared to be far outnumbered by the media, police and, well, under-cover feds.

Here is the original photo.
