A significant theme in Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ is the pervasive use of Soma, a drug which enables the State to maintain a status quo through mass medication. The enormous percentage of the population using prescription drugs today is as high as 70% in some areas with many of those consuming all manner of mood enhancers daily. Add…
A Commentary On The New World Order Censorship Shift by Mitch Santell
The world of truthers is not like any other. We all come to the truth in our own way. Over the past several weeks, ‘ thousands of channels have worried about their chances of staying online with their videos.
If you don’t know Owen Benjamin, this is what he used to do in Los Angeles:
Mr. Owen just posted this video to his new YouTube Channel which received 10,000 subscribers within days of launching:
Why would YouTube want to remove Benjamin Owen? The answer is MONEY. If YouTube determines that your channel “can’t be monetized,” then they can pull it.
What are the things that Benjamin Owen used to talk about? Here is a sample video:
There are thousands and thousands of channels that may or will be dumped on December 10, 2019. Google is once again (remember they own YouTube) about to change their policies and their “algorithms.” Once again many independent creators will need to find other ways to distribute their content.
You may not agree with Owen Benjamin and he has Freedom of Speech to say what he wishes. The train is leaving the station and you may have to leave YouTube behind to get your research out to as many as possible. Best of luck to you in these efforts.
A Guest Commentary by Hyram F. Suddfluffel, Ph.D., (Political Science)
I have a degree in Political Science, and I am a card-carrying Libertarian. I’ve been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents.
That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeach Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next!
1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.
2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.
3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President’s attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THEY WANT.
That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazile, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing cover-up activities.
A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger-pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of Democrats will start being charged and going to prison.
All this, because, remember, the President’s team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath – and they will turn on each other. That is already starting.
4. Lastly, one more thing will happen, the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don’t understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction.
Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed — and **everything** will be allowed, including DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover-up, and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information.
They will incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy, and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other vital issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged.
So let’s move on to impeachment. Hyram F. Suddfluffel, PhD
A Commentary On Changing Technology by Mitch Santell
The New World Order is already here, and I always know this whenever Apple, Inc. is having one of their “big meetings.”
Today it was a trip as I literally had to spend the entire day resetting my Administration Password on my MacBook Air. My laptop is running macOS High Sierra while my iMac is using the latest version of Mojave.
Of course, Apple will always tell you these systems are compatible with each other, but at the end of the day, they are not.
Next? The Wifi wouldn’t work right so I had to go into my closet and pull out my old Apple WiFi Unit from 2013.
I’ve placed a picture of it here so if you haven’t seen it, you can check it out.
Next? Thank goodness I am a patient man because then I had to check the MacBook Air’s Wi-fi (via my iPhone) to make sure that the Laptop’s Wi-fi would still work. It checked out perfectly and yet even my “Cox Wireless Modem” still could not recognize my MacBook Air without the old router plugged in and streaming.
The world we live in is 2 stage authentication. Apple makes this process easy, and it still feels like I am making a doctors appointment as each device checks every other device.
This is my “best guess,” as to what I think happens.
So you have millions and millions of users who use various systems on their desktop or their laptop and then there is the iPhone which as my dear friend Tom always says “is like having a MacBookPro in your pocket.
After that? There is always the issue of “Security Updates,” and of course, we never know when Apple will notify us about that except it always seems to be before their Big Event.
Yes, I use an iPhone 7plus and have not had one reason to upgrade it.
The best way that I have found to simplify the Apple experience is to text message off my Mac.
What was the best part of today?
After all this craziness starting at about 10 AM today, I finally had everything updated and working and back to “normal.” Of course, what is normal right?
My Apple Wireless Router is now back in my closest, the MacBook Air is now working correctly, and of course, since I also have an iCloud account, I didn’t lose any of my family photos or videos or pictures.
Parting shot:Who can still tell the truth?
Yes, this may look like a joke when you hear it and laugh, but there is a lot of truth here from Bill Burr.
Whatever your political views, it’s likely that a tsunami of tweets, opinion pieces and late night comedy skits have made their way into your news feeds and dinner table conversations. It’s seemingly unavoidable with an administration whose leader makes international news with every early morning tweet.
But what happens when that wave of opinions and information makes an unwelcome entrance into your workplace?
In a highly contentious and polarized political time, the 24-hour news cycle and constant social media contact continues to trigger emotional and widely divergent reactions. Add to this mix a new generation of workers who seek to bring their “whole selves” to work, including their political views, and you have a brand new office context in which politics show up alongside quarterly earnings as hot button topics. A whole array of corporate policies take on new meaning and intensity, including foreign worker visas, affirmative action, LGBT partner benefits and climate change strategy.
Given the range of opinions and news sources out there, politicized conversations often get stuck. Or, we carefully avoid them altogether for fear of being zapped — damaging important relationships and disrupting teamwork. At the same time, these conversations can be a chance to learn and hone your competitive edge.
There is a new breed of American that sincerely knows everything that is happening and can’t bring themselves to knock on their neighbor’s door to speak the truth.
If you think you have Freedom of Speech in America look at the absolute constant attack on President Donald J. Trump.
How did a national treasurer as a successful entrepreneur and hit TV show star end up being attacked?
Please invest a few moments to watch and listen to what is truly happening in America. The American Press is so bad that there are more Americans who own Pet Chickens, more Practicing Witches, and Prostitutes than those watching CNN.
Characteristics of a Dystopian Society
• Propaganda is used to control the citizens of society.
• Information, independent thought, and freedom are restricted.
• A figurehead or concept is worshipped by the citizens of the society.
• Citizens are perceived to be under constant surveillance.
• Citizens have a fear of the outside world.
Types of Dystopian Controls
Most dystopian works present a world in which oppressive societal control and the illusion of a perfect society are maintained through one or more of the following types of controls:
• Corporate control: One or more large corporations control society through products, advertising, and/or the media. Examples include Minority Report and Running Man.
• Bureaucratic control: Society is controlled by a mindless bureaucracy through a tangle of red tape, relentless regulations, and incompetent government officials. Examples in the film include Brazil.
• Technological control: Society is controlled by technology—through computers, robots, and/or scientific means. Examples include The Matrix, The Terminator, and I, Robot.
• Philosophical/religious control: Society is controlled by philosophical or religious ideology often enforced through a dictatorship or theocratic government.
The Dystopian Protagonist
• often feels trapped and is struggling to escape.
• questions the existing social and political systems.
• believes or feels that something is terribly wrong with the society in which he or she lives.
• helps the audience recognizes the negative aspects of the dystopian world through his or her perspective.
What will you do to ensure that future generations don’t turn out to be like the movie 1984?
Regardless of what anyone tells you, there is no more precious a gift than Freedom Of Speech. For so many of us here in America, our form of this specific freedom are the millions and millions of blog postings we put up each day expressing different points of view.
The mainstream media in America has lost its mind since the 2016 election.
Even though I have been a traditional moderate democrat since I turned 18 in 1975 in 1980, I became what is known as a “Ronald Regan Democrat.”
Interest was at 21%, and gas prices were too high, and America was dealing with the hostage crisis in Iran.
Are you old enough to remember those times?
There was one bizarre thing that happened after I voted for Ronald Reagan and he took the oath of office.
Do you want to know what it was?
Here is my take on this and I remember it like it was just yesterday:
Since the Democrats lost the White House in 1980, the party as a whole, became “sore losers.”
The reason that so many moderate and conservative Democrats voted for Ronald Reagan was they did not want to high-interest rates. The general public was tired of high gas prices. President Reagan ran for public office by promising to reduce regulations on business.
Does this sound familiar? President Trump, like President Reagan, got rid of regulations to help a business succeed.
In 2019, there is no such thing as being a moderate Democrat. These people don’t exist anymore. Where have these people gone?
They all switched to the Republican Party even if they are a RINO (Republican In Name Only). They have become independents, or they are looking for a new party to join.
Freedom of Speech is so precious to the American DNA that if you are in Europe, Asia, Russia or even in the middle east, the real fight is here in America, and it’s a fight for ideas.
Reflections On Trump’s Current Chess Game by Mitch Santell
Congratulations, you have just witnessed something in America that no other President would have the guts to do. What is it? President Donald J. Trump signed the current budget to keep the U.S. Government open while at the same time declaring a National Emergency. In my view? This is an absolutely brilliant strategy. This is the long game. It will still be a wild ride, but at least the amusement park is also known as America will still be around so that the circus can continue. (I love my country, I don’t take what is happening lightly but I do realize, we have to keep our sense of humor).
The White House confirmed Thursday that President Donald Trump will declare a national emergency in an attempt to bypass Congress and get more funding for his Mexico border wall project.
Trump will also sign off on a congressional bill that would authorize a much smaller amount of wall money than the president had been demanding.
“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action, including a national emergency, to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.
Like so many of us who are die hard Apple fans, we sometimes think that Apple in 2018 is Apple of 2008. Well, it is not. The most recent little secret that I discovered when I wanted to treat my wife to one of her favorite films from when she was a kid.
We simply purchased Lost Horizon at the iTunes store. We immediately started streaming the movie and it looked fine.
This morning I decided that I would download the movie to my Mac Mini so that we would not have to wait for Apple to “authorize” our purchase so we could stream it.
Guess what? I could download the film but because I use a less expensive Dell Monitor, I couldn’t play the film after I downloaded it. The film will still stream but not download.
My response to all this? It makes me not want to purchase movies any more through Apple, Inc.
Sorry Steve Jobs, I think I’ll be going elsewhere to buy my films bro.
The biggest innovations from Apple in 2019 likely won’t be its devices. Instead, it’ll be the services that run on them.
iPhone sales just aren’t soaring like they used to, and it’s getting harder to make smartphones flashier each year. Apple’s ability to woo users increasingly may come from the software and services — like Apple Music and the upcoming Apple video service — we use on those devices.
“Given the momentum that we’re seeing across the board, we feel great about our current services,” Cook said during the company’s earnings call in July. “But obviously we’re also thrilled about our pipeline that have some new services in it as well.”
Apple in the coming years may look very different from the company in the past decade, when it got about two-thirds of its revenue from its smartphone lineup.
