Happy Monday! One Small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day! I might aim for two 🙂

The whitewashing of this election is on. And by “Whitewashing” I am not using it in the culturally misappropriated way that has been overtaken by the mainstream.

I mean it in the same was as it was originally used – covering up something that is ugly with white paint in order to make it look clean again. Which could also be compared to another of my favorite analogies. You can polish up a piece of shit and make it look shiny and new . . . but it’s still a piece of shit.

CENSORSHIP

As the government and the cabal begin trying to reestablish itself as our owners and controllers. We must document it and do everything in our power to fight back.

Over the weekend, Phoenix was suspended from Youtube. Reason? Talking about Q I believe – but I could be only partially right. So for the next 7 days, you can catch the Patriot Intel Report on his website:

http://www.patriotintelreport.com/

Over the past month or so, Google/Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and all of the Big Tech socials have been “CLEANSING” their platform of what they have decided to be false or fake news. It has been a purge of unprecedented scope – reminding us about the horrors that we only thought could happen under China or Russia.

But hey kids. Its happening here in the USA as well. Land of the Free. Home of the Brave. Protected by the First Amendment.  And how many of you either did not notice or did not care?

We have watched it happen and so far done nothing. Can we rely on congress to protect us? The Democrats used to be the loudest defendants of the rights to free speech and assembly.  I cannot say that that is the case anymore.

Safe Social Media?

Also this weekend, there has been a mass migration of Facebook users to Parler. Funny thing. I decided to do this as well. When I went to sign up, I found that there was already an account associated with my email and phone number.

So I tried to log in with my favorite password. Then my second favorite password. Guess What! It was me who signed up for Parler back in June of 2019. I have a vague memory of doing that. I had also signed up for GAB. But I did not write down my user name for Parler. Now I have it. If you would like to connect with me on Parler, Look me up at:

@alfoss1540

It may take me a while to figure out the ins and outs of Parler. Seems to me a lot like Twitter. Not sure if I can have an Astrogardens or an Oracle Report presence. I will have to see.

Did you miss this?

On Friday, Laura Walker and Phoenix were featured on Christine Cisneros’ Youtube channel. Whether they talked about the 17th letter of the alphabet, I will never tell. But its worth the listen!

A Time for Action

Over the weekend, I was sent an article by Mr. Allan Weisbecker where he made his own predictions about what might happen this year. The predictions were made on February 4.

1. Voluntary isolation of the sick
2. Mandatory isolation of the sick (they will come and get you, as in China)
3. Voluntary quarantine (of not-sick people) in their homes, plus…
4. Curfews and spot checking (for symptoms) on the streets 
4a. Travel bans are enacted, including street travel between cities and towns
5. Hoarding of food/water/supplies is outlawed (to make the populace dependent on the government)
6. Mandatory quarantines, first at home (you can’t leave the house) then…
7. Quarantine camps (which are now called Fema Camps and are ready and waiting)
8. Guns (They will come and get them, as with Katrina in New Orleans; no reason needed)
9. Vaccination (idiots will plea for it)
10. Mandatory vaccinations (in the camps and in order to procure food from the government)
11. ‘Fake News’ is banned (as suggested at ‘Event 201), arrests made; in some areas the Internet is shut down — to prevent ‘a crisis in confidence’ (some measures will start early on)
12. Cash money is said to carry The Bug and is outlawed
13. The United Nations, at first via WHO, is gradually given jurisdiction, with some foreign troops on U.S. soil
14. One World (cashless) Economy and Government is eased in. (Formal Martial Law is declared somewhere around measures 7 or 8)
15. At some point aerial spraying may be initiated, with some sort of bull shit reason given relating to fighting The Bug. God only knows what will be in these admitted chemtrails.
16. The Bug will serve as another reason for unlimited surveillance and the curtailing of personal freedoms in general. The excuse will be the ‘identification of people who refuse to be tested or vaccinated’, something like that.
You can check out Allan’s site here. Its a Rabbit Hole worth descending into:
This little piece of prognostication reminds us of where we were. And worse, that the writing on the wall at the time was such that people could easily see what they could do.
NOW, consider the events of this weekend. The Media and the Democrats declared victory in the Presidential race. Ignore the potential litigation. In their world, the election is over. They win. Trump loses. Send up the fireworks. Annoint Biden as the God of all times. Here we are.
And what are they already suggesting?
1) Senate race is Georgia is poised to give the Democrats complete control of the Government.
2) Biden naming his transition team – First on the List, Dr Zeke Emanual on the Covid 19 taskforce.
3) Guess What! One of those many vaccines that Trump has been talking about looks to be 90% effective. PRAISE LORD BIDEN FOR DELIVERING IT!
4) Executive Orders planned for his first day in office:
   – Rejoin the WHO (ooops that will cost us $500 billion)
   – Rejoin the Paris Climate Accord (oooops that will cost us $1.5 Trillion)
   – Reestablish DACA (00000ps – that gives citizenship and welfare  to 15 million non citizens)
   – Rescind travel bans from “terrorist” countries (I think the lamestream media described them as Muslim Countries)
ALL IN THE NAME OF BIPARTISANSHIP!
I guess the lamestream media forgot to tell everyone that they changed the definition on Wikipedia of BIPARTISAN from “Whatever Barrack Obama says that the Republicans agree to” to “Whatever Joe Biden’s Handlers say that the Republicans agree to”.

What Election Coverage Did you Follow last Tuesday?

As we sit a wait to see what the cabal reports as the result of the US Presidential election, Its time to look back at the way it was reported.

Who did you listen to on Election day?

For me, I switched back and forth across 3 devices.

  1. Lamestream News – CBS News – This is the channel most watched in our house (its the only channel my wife will watch. So from the time it started, CBS Norah O’Donnell, Gayle King and the rest of their cast of Democratic Party hacks reported on the election. They stayed true to their belief in all the Polls that Biden would win and it was their job to report on that historic event. (NOTE: I Never watch NBC or ABC)
  2. Cable News – FoxNews – By and large, they were the most even of the channels I followed. They were back and forth about who they seemed in favor of. And they kept getting the figures and their calls wrong. It was obvious that other news outlets were following their lead with calling states for one candidate or the other. (NOTE: I Never watch CNN or MSNBC).
  3. Internet – Facebook live with Steve Bannon Warroom – and company – This show was interesting because the Pollster, Richard Barris, knew more about the states than any other in the lamestream. He went through the states and county by county could accurately represent what was happening at the ground level. And he more accurate than any others.
  4. Patriot Channel on Sirius XM – Featuring David Webb, Andrew Wilkow and Alex Marolow – Unapologetically conservative, right wing republicans. I usually enjoy them, however it was a radio and not TV broadcast. They could talk about results but not show them. And they spent a lot of time interviewing partisans from the Trump administration.

If you watched another network – or multiple different networks, and paid attention to the specific biases of the network talking heads, I would love your opinions.

But I would posit that other than Fox, who I would call the most even handed of the Mainstream news outlets, the whole of the mainstream bats from the left side of the plate.

Is that due to the majority of them are educated from the POV of the left? Probably a part.

Is that because the networks are intentionally biased? Pandering to a specific audience? Owned by a specific party?

What Flavor Bullshit are You Consuming?

I often wonder how people decide on what news outlet they listen to. Is it the politics? Is it comfort fro years watching the same thing? Do you believe one is better than the other? Is it a specific News anchor you trust the most? Did you fall in love with Wolf Blitzer during the Gulf War?

Years ago I stopped settling on a single outlet. I realized in 1979-80 during the Reagan-Carter Race that the bias could not be hidden. I was only 13 and could see that Dan Rather and Sam Donaldson were seething over a Reagan win. They were in pain reporting that Carter would lose. Those same biased fools were spitting nails 4 years later when Reagan won every state except Minnesota and Washington DC. And this is what people were “trusting” for information.

And here is where we must both acknowledge and question personal bias. And where does the personal bias intersect with the corporate cultural bias of the network and the over arching temperature of the nation?

It wasn’t until 1996, when Foxnews went on the air, was there a broadcast that did not report with a left wing bias. And ever since then, Fox has been railed on and insulted because of their bias. I would say that at least they acknowledge their bias. When 80% of the reporters identify as left of center, there is a problem.

Were it not for the fact that my wife likes to watch news, and her channel of choice is CBS, I would not watch Television news at all. And listening to it, I tend to think that every show and broadcast is more like a left-wing circle jerk. And when the only thing that I really want to see from the news is the Weather (and I would personally rather not have every broadcast be a commercial to believe in Climate Change), its not worth watching.

An Election Like No Other

After the 2016, I thought there could not be any worse political shenanigans to be seen. But who knew that 2020 would be a PLEASE Hold my Beer situation.

Plandemic – Here we have it. you must decide. How did  the Global Plandemic act as the catalyst to change the way the US does elections? I for one will go on record saying that the Plandemic, has been extended and used specifically to change the world economy and social culture in order to allow the possibility of a democrat win in the US elections.

The Democrats have spent years trying to change the playing field for elections. I remember back in the 1980’s. I knew fellow students involved with CALPiRG (an crazed environmental group started by Ralph Nader). During elections, they acted as “get out the vote” shock troops for the democrat party. They were closely aligned with another group called ACORN – whose job was to do the exact same thing. ACORN was blown up for being pimps and hiring prostitutes back in about 2009 – but the infrastructure and people matriculated through the Democrat establishment to do exactly what they have been doing this election – harvesting votes.

What did Vote by Mail do?  In some states, they were able to send ballots to every person on the States’ voter roles. But anyone knowing anything about huge lists like this, the accuracy is 70% at best. Meaning that 30% were inaccurate. Wrong person, wrong address, dead, etc. Say you were an enterprising democrat and received 10 different ballots at your apartment. Would you turn them in? Throw them out? Open them and fill them out according to your preference?

There is a big reason that there have been more votes cast year than ever in the history of the United States. It is because they made sure that instead of a piddling 52% turnout, they got more like 80%. Ask yourself why states like Wisconsin had more votes cast than there were registered voters. Ask yourself how states that were likely Red states magically moved to blue by just enough votes as to not be contestable.

And if you believe, really believe that everything is on the up and up, then I hope that you enjoy the taste of that Blue Pill that you have been sucking on. Change will be a coming.

What do we do now?

As I sit here listening to psycho-babble coming from CBS News in the other room (it’s a virtual celebration – surprised they haven’t popped champagne), I ask, What will we do?

Constant Vigilance. The power structure that will be put in place will be bad. It will reenact every policy that had us in a 8 year recession under Obama. They will call it the Trump-COVID recession. But it will be caused by increased taxes, regulations and malaise caused by Socialist policy. Watch constantly for what they will do to you. They will be erecting walls. Probably not physical ones (they would be slaughtered for that after 4 years of fighting Trump’s border policy). But legal and social walls. Look for permanent changes in election law – controlled from the top.

Protect Yourself – Stand on the rights that we are promised by the Constitution. Right to free speech, free assembly, religion, right to keep and bear arms. Stock up. There will be shortages. Buy a generator – ask California what rolling blackouts are like. Plant a garden. Your sovereign self is gonna have to protect itself.

Question Everything – Big brother will be watching you. They already were I am afraid. But it will be worse. Because they want to control you.

Turn Off Big Media – enough said. We will connect where we can and where we have to. But mainstream sources are not safe. We are not free to express ourselves.

Connect to Ground, Connect to Source – This stuff is not natural. And there will now be patriots willing to join together in a solidarity not known before. We can connect and make thing safer and better for ourselves.

Start here and feel free to offer some more advice. We will all need it.

For those looking for reports in the last week, I have been kind of underground. The universe here has been pretty toxic with the elections. And rather than speak my peace, I have been practicing being the Wise Owl in a Tree. And watching the levels of hysteria flow through the universe.

 

And as the Wise Owl in a tree, there is so much you can see. My particular favorite has been the news media.

I am hypersensitive to the media – and specifically to bias in the media. This goes back many years. Back to the 1984 in fact when I visited the UK. There, I was introduced to the politically biased tabloid journalism. You could read the Times ( a conservative rag) and then The Guardian (A Labour rag) and get the understanding of the difference in points of view. they would feature the exact same stories told from the points of view of each political faction. If I learned anything from my trip to England, it was in regarding political bias.

When I returned to the US, I had expected to see the unbiased media I had grown up with. But I was forever changed. Bias is so easy to spot when you are looking for it. And it sticks out like a sore thumb. It is overt and covert. And all scheduled and planned in order to make an impact.

The experience forever opened my eyes to media manipulation. Funny thing. I had read the book 1984 about 2 years prior to that. But it really did not register with me. I reread it in 1986, and was mind blown.

And at times like these, the propaganda is flying like no other time in my memory!

When the Student is Ready, the Teacher will appear

Call it serendipity, the law of attraction, kismet, deja vu or something in the air. I am always pleased and amazed when special messages come to me at just the right moment.

Today I was at the Doctor’s office with my son, and was reading my book – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. And wouldn’t you know it. But just the right message came through.

The Book – Order of the Phoenix begins with Harry back at his aunt’s house for the summer. It is right after he has won the Triwizard tournament, watched Cedric Diggory die, and Lord Voldamort brought back to life. Add being gaslighted by the Minister of Magic and then abandoned, it should be a perfect recipe for Depression and PTSD.

And then, the Dementors attack!

But enough of that. I was more interested in the very obvious storyline of how the ministry of magic has been applying pressure to the Daily Prophet (the wizarding worlds’ one and only source of official news), to cover up any mention of the Return of the Dark Lord. To do this, all mentions of the events in Goblet of Fire have been suppressed. Also, to further stop the spread of information, they are actively smearing both Dumbledore and Harry Potter, who are the only people openly confirming the return of the Dark Lord.

So pardon me for a few hundred words I will copy from J.K. Rowling:

—————

“Haven’t you been getting The Daily Prophet?” Hermoine asked nervously.

“Yeah I have.” said Harry.

“Have you – er – been reading it thoroughly?” Hermoine asked still more anxiously.

“Not cover to cover,” said Harry defensively. “Of they were going to report anything about Volvemort it would be headline news, wouldn’t it?”

“Well, you’d need to read it cover to cover to pick it up, but they – um – they mention you a couple times a week.”

“But I’d have seen -”

“Not if you’ve only been reading the front page, you wouldn’t,” said Hermoine, shaking her head. “I’m not talking about big articles. They just slip you in, like you’re a standing joke.”

“What d’you -?”

“It’s really quite nasty, actually. They’re building on Rita’s stuff.”

. . .

“:Which is what?” said Harry impatiently.

“Okay, you know she wrote that you were collapsing all over the place and saying your scar was hurting and all that? . . . Well they’re writing about you as though you’re this deluded, attention seeking person who thinks he’s a great tragic hero or something, . . “They keep slipping in comments about you. If some far fetched story appears they say something like, ‘a tale worthy of Harry Potter’ and if anyone has a funny accident or anything it’s ‘let’s hope he hasnt; got a scar on his forehead or we’ll be asked to worship him next.”

. . .

“Do you see what they are doing? They want to turn you into someone nobody will believe. Fudge is behind it, I’ll bet anything. They want wizards on the street to think you are just some stupid boy whose a bit of a joke, who tells ridiculous tall stories because he loves being famous and wants to keep it going.”


The role of the Daily Prophet in the Harry Potter books is one of my favorite side plots. And it brings in the absolute horror that we all learned in reading Orwell’s 1984. It is dramatized in such a way as to make it so real and frightening.

It goes on and on throughout the books. And it is an element that takes a cute Kids fantasy novel and turns it into some pretty dark dystopian fiction.

Stranger Than Fiction

I use this Harry Potter vignette to point out that this same time of media control is happening today in the midst of this election. One needs simply to pay attention.

Let’s consider for a moment Voting by mail. This process was ushered into place (primarily in states run by Democrats). From the beginning, Democrats in congress tried to cannonize it into law by funding it in a Coronavirus stimulus bill. TAKE SPECIAL NOTE: This has been something that the Democrats have been trying to implement for years, but have not been able to swing it.

Why? Because it is also pretty well known in political circles that they want it because they already have the infrastructure to make it work very successfully for their party. Consider this. Imagine an Army of Democrats walking around neighborhood handing ballots to all people they know are also Democrats weeks prior to an election. They ask the person if they would like to fill it out and hand it back for delivery. Makes it very easy. And this is the most honest and easy form of advantage that the Democrats have had planned with a vote by mail system.

REMEMBER – It is a large part of the reason that Congress did not pass a stimulus package back in June. The Democrats insisted. The Republicans said NO.

But further to this, President Trump, made the case against this adder to the stimulus package. He pointed out all of the fraud that it would opened the possibility to the electoral system. (Incorrect voter registration rolls, matching signatures, no ID’s required).

As the President argued against Vote by Mail, the news media took up the call to discredit him at all levels. Whenever they mentioned Trump and Vote by Mail, they added the caveats – “Claims that are Totally Unproven”. They had 3-4 statements to this effect. And EVERY MEDIA OUTLET (from CNN to Fox News) repeated it. Here is where the fix could be seen. The statements were universal – written by the same source. You could the eyes of the media personalities glaze over as they followed the programmed script.

And this worked for the Mainstream. The idea of voting by mail made logical sense in the world of Coronavirus. You can Vote and stay safe at the same time. Anyone not agreeing to it obviously wants everyone to die a horrible death.

So what could not be accomplished at the federal level, was implemented by the states. And everybody please take a look at each of the states where there are irregularities.

Constant Vigilance

This is part one in my discussions about the election and all of the issues that it is bringing up. This is just a tiny piece.

Consider why the Democrat party in the weeks leading up to the election ran non-stop commercials looking like Public Service Announcements – explaining all the details needed to submit a mail in ballot and make sure it is not rejected.

Consider who might be paying for the slew of commercials that have run in the past 2 days run during peak News hours about “Trusting the Process – Count Every Vote”.  Millions of Dollars on that campaign, and for what?

Samhain is a pagan religious festival originating from an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition. In modern times, Samhain (a Gaelic word pronounced “sow-win”) is usually celebrated from October 31 to November 1 to welcome in the harvest and usher in “the dark half of the year.” Celebrants believe that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world break down during Samhain, allowing more interaction between humans and denizens of the Otherworld.

The Gamblers Fallacy – Believing that “runs” occur to statistically independent phenomena, such as a roulette wheel spins.
I had an advanced statistics professor in college who delighted in giving gambling examples for statistics problems. He would use black jack, or dice or roulette. He would come up with a data set and ask us to analyze it to see if any statistical significance could be gleaned from it. And eventually calculate the odds. (The odds actually had no significance to the class. He just enjoyed it.)
This was back in the 1980’s before there were any decent statistical modelling computer programs. You could program in SAS. They taught it to us even though they knew spreadsheets were just about to blow it’s usefulness out of the water. But it was incredibly labor intensive and usually filled with errors. You often spent more time proofing errors than analyzing the data.

What is random?

Random is the term used to describe that 2 events have absolutely no correlation. You roll a six sided die once. You have an equal chance of the number coming up 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.  If you roll it a second time, the chance is still equal. People start to get confused because they will think that if you roll a “1” on the first roll, that the chances that you will get another “1” is somehow less. It is not.
You can change the question however. If you were to ask, “If you roll the die twice, what is the chance (probability) that you will roll a “1” on both rolls?” This is a wholly different question. With a whole different set of probabilities than the first question.
But it is similar enough, that a crafty wordsmith to use the argument to their advantage.
Also know that we are also dealing with other possibilities when you face multiple trials interacting with multiple variables. Then you can start working with Game Theory and Chaos Theory. Statistics is the study of large numbers and amounts of things – somehow being able to describe and make sense of these large numbers.
I believe the sames Stats teacher who had this obsession also would often note that, “The Lottery is Taxation for People Who Failed Math.”
What we must remember with the Gambler’s Fallacy is that numbers and statistics are often used to make points during discussion and discourse. And when they can find favorable statistics, they will be used to make points that may not be valid. We must pay attention.

More Fallacious Content

If you caught yesterday’s post, I began a discussion about Logical Fallacies. It was inspired by a meme I found on Facebook. It listed a number of “logical fallacies” that are used. It both defined them and suggested how to counter attack them. The meme is pictured to the right.

I will continue discussing each fallacy and offering thoughts and examples when it makes sense.

Special Pleading – Moving the goalposts of making up exceptions when a claim is shown to be false.

My favorite example of this is Global Warming. Here is a case of a seriously Inconvenient Truth. From the 70’s through the first 10 years of the new millennium, the main argument of the environmental lobby was that greenhouse gasses (caused by the burning of fossil fuels) was going to cause the Earth to turn into a massive greenhouse, thus increasing the global temperature, causing the ice caps to melt, flooding all of the coastlines of the world and causing global catastrophes.

For the environmentalists, it was the perfect story. ALL “science” textbooks were written to reflect this belief. “Science” academic-types have their entire careers as well as all of their grant funding tied to it. Former Vice President Al Gore wrote and produced a movie promoting this concept (who cares that he made over $250 Million from it). And then “98% of all scientists everywhere” somehow agreed to it.

Then, the Inconvenient Truth came out. According to Gore, New York City should have been under about 30 feet of ocean water by about 2015 (probably earlier than that. I never actually sat through the whole movie, but read enough about it.). The Earth was NOT warming up. The Polar Ice Caps were not being melted by Global Warming.

By the early 2010’s, the Environmentalists had to come up with a new name for their cause. It is now called

CLIMATE CHANGE

The Science is Always Changing. Same BS. New Name. Voila. All the grants secured by liberal science academia are saved. All that being said, Joe Biden still has the words “Global Warming” written into all of his speeches and talking points. It was a very easy message to spread no matter how wrong it was.

the “Special Pleading” fallacy allowed one side of the argument to basically excuse themselves from being wrong by claiming that the Science changed. New Name. Same modus operendi.

It is illogical because it has given them a free pass to say whatever they want. Academia, “Scientists”, The media, all of the textbooks agree. Anyone questioning it is called stupid.

Take the first Presidential Debate. Did Chris Wallace ask, “What are you doing to clean up the environment?” to president Trump? No. He asked, “What do you believe about Climate Change?”

And as The Guardian said in their discussion about this question,

Science unequivocally shows humans are the predominant cause of global warming.

But in 2020, actual science says quite the opposite. Pollution is bad. But it is not the cause of the Earth’s Climate changing. But they still say it.

What is a logical fallacy?

Let me start by saying that I found this infographic on Facebook. I decided it needed to be spread far and wide. But the descriptions may just need a little more work – maybe a story or two.

And frankly, this was probably the most extensive listing of these fallacies that I have found. So here I go.

Logical fallacies are when false reasoning is used to make a point. Like saying 1 + 1 = 3 – because there are 3 figures before the equal sign. You read this piece of false bullshit and immediately say, that the person saying it is an idiot. But s I googled it, there are a number of mathematical proofs that can be used. They make massive assumptions that are not in the equation to justify themselves. but in the end, it is like chasing down a rabbit hole of someone else’s thought stream.

Logical fallacies are like tricks or illusions of thought. They are used by politicians, religious leaders, the media or other people to fool or influence people.

I am hypersensitive to these right now. It’s a week away from an extremely contentious election in the United States. I have heard so much bullshit and mud slung around, I think we could all use a little logical boost.

And what is worse, these people do not use just one piece of faulty logic. More often, they strew lines of bullshit with SO MANY fallacies that you do not know where to begin to dissect it.

So I would like to shed some light on them and kind of flush them out.

So with that, I am going to go through each of these over the next few days. Couple a day. And explore them. Consider who uses them. Find examples.

Strawman: Misrepresenting or exaggerating someone’s argument to make it easier to attack. And using that exaggeration against the person

This is a big one in politics today. In fact I like to dissect every political commercial that airs to find these. And both sides use it equally. The fact that the Democrats have been outspending republicans about 5-1 in Southeast Pennsylvania means that I have heard pretty much every policy related smear there is. They tend to go like this:

1 – My opponent voted for this or that piece of legislation.

2 – The world is going to end and we will all die because of it.

3 – My opponent is an evil messenger spawn of the Devil.

4 – Vote for me. I will not make that mistake and kill us all.

Slippery SlopeIf A happens, then Z will happen too and therefore we must stop A from happening.

You find this fallacy is often used together with other logical fallacies (like the Strawman). It is pretty simple. A small thing happens. It sets off a chain reaction of worsening events. Until either everyone is dead, or the hero somehow saves them.

This is a difficult fallacy to overcome as it makes assumptions and then follows them toward what it considers a logical conclusion. BUT the question must be made about the ASSUMPTIONS! This is often where the slippery slope can be diverted.

These are a start. I will keep going tomorrow!
