    Seg 1….I can not argue with anything that Jim just said….He nailed it IMO.
    As i stated on this blog last year . You are watching history in real time. The collapse of the American Empire……I also stated it was the enemy from within.
    Russia-Russia-Russia…Is the enemy !!!…”WRONG”… Russia is not the treat, “THEY” make it out to be…To distract from the fact that it is really…China-China- China .
    The elites in the US , & dare i say other’s around the world…Are strip mining all of the wealth in the US…To invest in the Worlds newest , “EMPIRE” CHINA.
    I’m sorry for having to say this…But there is no going back for the US….Unless the Military was to step in & round up the Enemys within who who are selling your PEPUBLIC out to the highest bidder…..How many weapons do the American public own ? ….It’s fast approaching the time , when they are going to have to use them , to save their asses………..They know who the traiters are….The above is just my humble oppinion , as i see things , from the point of view , as an outsider looking in.

      “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

      — Marcus Tullius Cicero

        Tony, I pray to God that this does not hapen in America. We can diminish that possibiliity by continuing to put the word out here and getting people to stop and think. I personally commit to put out at least sixty comments daily beginning today.

      Hi Tony, I had my second Coved shot yesterday. The nurse told me that 50% of the people who get the shots get some type of symptoms like muscle soreness or headaces or general tiredness. I seem to have a bit of the soreness and tiredness. I am generally feeling kind of depressed as are a lot of people in America today. My challenge now is to put out upbeat ideas that simply make sense. Regarding your comment above I have to agree with you and Jim and Iwill do an editorial on it tomorow morning. As, I believe Oliver Perry said “We have met the enemy and he is us. “Master Commandant Oliver Perry wrote to Major General William Henry Harrison, “We have met the enemy and they are ours.” Kelly’s parody of this famous battle report perfectly summarizes mankind’s tendency to create our own problems.” That is a very important fact for us to realize. I do because I realized today that I have only one enemy and that currently is me. Only I can change my environment. Please remember that all! Actions speak louder than words!

    First, without any doubt, THE 2020 ELECTION WAS STOLEN BY THE DEMOCRATS.

    American elections are NEVER extremely voted in either direction. With some locality exceptions, there are about 40% of the populace that will always vote Democrat, because they believe that vote will personally benefit them the most; be it “free” phones or “free” healthcare. There are about 40% of the populace that will always vote Republican, because they believe that in a laissez faire capitalist system, the country’s economy grows the most.
    It is the swing in either direction of the muddle 20% that usually determines the winners of the election. In 2020, some votes were DESTROYED and some votes were CREATED ILLEGALLY, in 6 close key states, in order to STEAL THE ELECTION FOR DEMOCRATS.
    That was all it took to elect a senile person to the Presidency.

    Next, China was experimenting in Wuhan, in the Institute of Virology, with the weaponization of viruses. In particular, it took a bat corona virus, which it knew could infect people and added to that virus some sections of the HIV virus, presumably to measure its effect on animals. Most probably incompetent safety practices allowed this composite virus to infect one or more of the workers at that Institude and from that worker into the population of Wuhan. Concurrent with the escape of this weaponized virus was the holding of the Wuhan Military Games, In October 2019. The weaponized virus spread both into the commiunity of Wuhan and also into at least two international participants, one Dutch and one Italian, of those Games……the rest is history. China, realizing that they had an escaped weaponized virus, DELIBERATELY chose not to inform the international community. Whether this was to hide the origin of this problem, or if China recognized they could take commercial advantage by allowing the virus to spread, I do not know. (I would tend to believe the latter.) Certainly Chinachose to prohibit the World Health Organization from a full investigation of the pandemic. Certainly China chose not to divulge what therapeutics it used to ameliorate the disease in Wuhan Province. Certainly CHINA CHOSE NOT ONLY TO HIDE INFORMATION, BUT INCREASE THE SPREAD TO THE WEST, BY ENCOURAGING TRAVEL.
    (China also suppressed the publication of genomic information of the virus and lied about its effects in Wuhan.)

    Boeing? Think one man, James McNerney, the CEO from 2005 to 2015. His decisions on the 737 MAX are what got the company into trouble. He’s a marketing weenie with little understandng of the design and manufacture of airplanes. (Neither did William Boeing, a businessman who made his fortune in lumber.) McNerney’s decisions drove the engineers to gruelling schedules and involved taking short cuts, some of them of questionable legality.

    Where is McNerney today? Only The Shadow knows. He’s hardly ever mentioned in the media, and is likely in hiding, for good reason.

      Boeing has problems.
      It is competeing against Airbus, which despite the inefficiency of multi-center construction, has massive hidden European subsidies.

        Most of the problems stem from the grounding of the 737 MAX, based on a 54 year-old design from another era that was stretched too far. That was McNerney’s decision.

    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said Wednesday the Department of Defense (DOD) will prioritize lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex people in its decision-making processes, according to the top item in an email from the Navy and Marine Corps Daily Media Report.

    “On February 4, 2021, the President issued a memorandum directing all U.S. departments and agencies that engage abroad or are involved in foreign aid, assistance, and development programs to undertake a number of actions related to promoting and protecting the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) persons,” the email states.

    This was the first objective in the military’s list of priorities:

    With a biden presser imminent…..

    See how a sycophantic press corps treats the Delaware Democrat.
    By Lloyd Billingsley

    March 20, 2021
    Joe Biden has yet to deliver the customary first-year address to the joint session of Congress, but on March 25, the Delaware Democrat is scheduled to hold his first press conference. According to CBS News, Biden will face questions on the situation (please, don’t call it a “crisis”) at the southern border, the possibility of an infrastructure package, vaccines, and more.

    Embattled Americans might think of other questions Joe Biden so far has failed to field. Here are a few examples of questions the obsequious White House press corps could ask, but won’t.

    Why did you take so long to hold this press conference?
    You recently announced that you would not speak out on the Uyghurs, Hong Kong, and Taiwan because the People’s Republic of China operates under different norms. Could you please outline these different norms in more detail?
    During the 2020 campaign, you said the Chinese are “not bad folks” and “not competition for us.” Has Chinese president Xi Jinping ever done anything with which you disagreed?
    On your watch, will the United States continue to fund the Wuhan Institute of Virology?
    As a senator, you voted to tax Social Security benefits. Are more Social Security tax hikes part of your campaign promise to raise Americans’ taxes?
    As vice president, you said in 2014 that those who enter the United States illegally are “already Americans.” What does that say to legal immigrants and natural-born citizens?
    During the 2020 campaign, you hailed the most extensive system of voter fraud in American history. What did you mean by that?
    During the 2020 campaign, you told African Americans “you ain’t black” if they didn’t support you. How should African Americans who voted for President Trump understand that statement?
    During the 2020 campaign, you said poor kids were just as bright and just as talented as white kids. Could you please explain that in further detail?
    During the 2020 campaign, you said we choose this truth over facts. What, exactly, did you mean by that?
    As vice president, in early 2017 you were one of many Obama Administration officials who requested to unmask General Michael Flynn, which revealed his identity in intelligence reports. Why did you make that request?
    As vice president, why did you oppose President Obama’s operation to kill 9/11 terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden?
    Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says you were on the wrong side of every major foreign policy issue for the past 40 years. Can you address those issues in detail?
    Why haven’t you delivered an address to a joint session of Congress, as every president since Woodrow Wilson has done?
    You have failed to remember the names of Senator Mitt Romney, the “senator who was a Mormon,” you said, and your own Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, “the guy who runs that outfit,” you said. What do you say to Americans who worry you are operating under diminished capacity?
    What do you say to those who claim you are only a puppet of the far-Left?
    Do you still plan to serve only one term?
    Where is Hunter?
    And so on. Watch how a sycophantic press corps treats Biden, and recall how many times President Trump took questions from hostile reporters in real-time. See if you can spot any difference, both in the press conference and what is now going on in America.
