Everything is totally normal

 And if you think events appear to indicate otherwise, well, you're just huffing the hopium and snorting the copium.

Some 5,000 National Guard troops will reportedly remain deployed in Washington, DC throughout former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, staying in the capital until mid-March. However, discontent is brewing in the ranks.

According to an anonymously sourced Politico report on Sunday, a contingency force of 7,000 National Guard troops will stay in DC until Trump’s trial begins in February, after which 5,000 will stay put until the trial concludes, likely in the middle of March.

Politico’s sources said the deployment was necessary due to “impeachment security concerns,” yet the troops say they’ve been given little information about their mission, which one guardsman said is “very unusual for any military mission.”

They're there for the angry MAGA hordes! Or Antifa! BLM?

Calling Big Tech's bluff

The national governments are finally beginning to call Big Tech's bluff to withdraw their services if they can't keep freeloading on other people's content:

Australia’s treasurer has advised the tech giants to accept that their platforms will have to start paying for content, amid threats from Facebook and Google to limit services in the country if such a policy is enacted.

Canberra is finalizing legislation that would require the internet behemoths to obtain licenses to use content created by Australian news outlets. Both companies have warned that they would retaliate over the revenue-sharing scheme, with Google saying last week that it would remove its search engine from Australia, and Facebook declaring that it would strip news from the feeds of all Australian users.

On Sunday, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg pushed back on the ultimatums, signaling that the Australian government wouldn’t reverse course. “My view is that it is inevitable that the digital giants will be paying for original content,” he said, suggesting that Australia was leading the way in what would soon become a worldwide norm. He also admonished Facebook and Google for their hostility towards the proposed regulation, describing their threats to pull out of Australia as a “big disservice.” 

Google has been particularly unreceptive to the proposed legislation. Earlier this month, it was revealed that the Silicon Valley giant has been experimenting with blacklisting some Australian news sites from its search results, apparently as a future strategy to avoid having to pay for hosting the content. The move shocked Australian media outlets, which accused Google of carrying out a flagrant show of force to stop the revenue-sharing code from becoming law. 

As China and Russia have both demonstrated, a nation is much better off banning the predatory global tech corporations than accommodating them. 

Biden voters reconsider Biden

 A woman learns, with horror, that she voted for the man whose policies are going to have a negative impact on her family's lifestyle, as her husband works in the oil industry.

Jeremy just called and yelled at me. He said that everyone on the job site are freaking out thinking they are going to lose their jobs. He's blaming me for voting for Biden. You know I hated the way Trump acted. Is it true that Jeremy could lose his job?

Ok, first I'm sorry Jeremy is likely losing his job. I'm going to be honest with you though, YOU voted for this. I didn't and neither did Jeremy, but we will be suffering.... I always knew people would regret voting for Biden, I didn't think it would be Day 1. Biden probably won't hurt your feelings as much as Trump, but he will take you husband's job.

In fairness, Biden didn't actually win the election, so she's not genuinely culpable for the loss of her husband's job. But it is a salient lesson. Fake elections have consequences.

Britain reconsiders Biden

Our British Brethren already miss President Trump:

As one Conservative MP admitted last week, the trade deal that was being negotiated between the UK and the US while Trump was in office is now in trouble. 'The steam has gone out of it,' he said.

As I pointed out in these pages recently, the Biden team includes people who are deeply hostile to Great Britain and believe – incorrectly – that Brexit in some way abandons our commitment to the Good Friday Agreement.

It isn't just the Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi who takes this ignorant, anti-British view. Senator Chuck Schumer will shortly be the majority leader in the new Democrat-run Senate.

Last year, Schumer gave a speech for Sinn Fein, alongside Gerry Adams and others, in which he declared that while 'the road to Irish unity' is 'long and winding' it is 'now more within reach today than at any time'.

Sinn Fein was delighted to re-post that speech in the past few days, along with a message from Schumer to the Irish republicans: 'I wish you the best in your critical efforts to build support for a truly united Ireland.' The terrorists and former terrorists who run Sinn Fein are thrilled by such talk. After years of pro-terrorist sentiment being anathema in Washington, it appears that it is back at the heart of American politics.

This is bad for America – and bad for Britain, too.

With people such as Schumer at the top table, our nation is at a tricky juncture.

Remember, these people are dedicated to the break-up of our country – to the secession of Northern Ireland from the rest of the United Kingdom.

It's also amazing to see that the Irish are more concerned about the British presence in Northern Ireland than the African presence in Ireland.

Disney bans Peter Pan

 Because raciss. I doubt they'll be showing The Song of the South anytime soon:

Generations of children have been charmed by the magical tale of the boy who never grew up, but Peter Pan is now on a list of banned movies.

Bosses at Disney have blocked anyone under the age of seven from watching the 1953 animated classic on its streaming service over concerns that it portrays racial stereotypes, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Three other long-standing family favourites – The Aristocats, Swiss Family Robinson and Dumbo – have also been removed from children’s accounts for breaching ‘content advisories’ that were recently put in place.

I simply cannot wait to go into competition with the Devil Mouse. It's Under-7s today, everyone tomorrow.

The Ride, She Never Ends

D-Live has doubled-down and banned Big Bear. How fortunate that the Patreon lawsuit has already been successfully concluded.... In answer to the obvious question, yes, UATV will have streaming in the future. We will not answer any questions as to when. When it is ready, we will let everyone know.

If you're not yet on Unauthorized, well, you know what to do. The cult of free is over. Keep in mind that under the present regime, Big Tech is going to be banning everyone to the right of Hillary Clinton. In related news, Parler is learning why cloud technology is not an option.

When Amazon Web Services informed Parler that it was terminating its hosting deal, the social platform initially maintained that it would be back online in a week. It appears to have secured DNS hosting from Epik (the Sammamish, WA-company that hosts sites like 8chan, the Daily Stormer, Gab and Stormfront who have been dropped from other providers and recently lost its relationship with PayPal because of that).

But a later statement indicated that other providers are not willing to host the platform and as a result, the service may not return: “most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us,” a statement to the Parler user base read and the company’s legal team suggested in court might not return without access to AWS.

Even if the social network finds a hosting provider, setting up all the different services it needs could be prohibitively slow, or even impossible. For all the talk of hybrid and edge computing, hyperscale cloud still has some hard to beat advantages for organizations with small infrastructure teams and not much capital expenditure budget who need to build large services quickly.

Needless to say, we're not relying on the cloud for anything, not even brand new projects that are not even remotely political. In not-entirely-unrelated-news, MeWe is not a viable Facebook-alternative.

Less crazy than it sounds

Rest assured that I don't expect anyone who isn't already familiar with this sort of thing to believe it in any way, shape or form. And at this point, you shouldn't. I highly recommend not taking any of this seriously at the moment, but simply adding it to your general knowledge base in much the same way as you happen to be familiar with The Lord of the Rings or Watership Down. Think of it as a metaphor, or, if you prefer, a palindrome. But in light of all of the post-election anomalies, it might serve you well as a useful conceptual reference point for interpreting events in the future that you happen to find inexplicable.

In 1871 a sedious act was performed by the Government.  A coup was made to rewrite the constitution and put WE THE PEOPLE in all capitals, under a new corporate contract transferring the United States of America into the new Corporation of the United States of America which transferred  the power of We The People and the constitution over to the new corporation. When they did that, it placed the citizens in the United States as property of the Corporation which was centered in Washington D.C..  This action made Washington D.C.  a FOREIGN ENTITY on American soil of sovereign states. It was established through a loan from the Vatican when D.C. was transferred into a city-state, and this corporate entity then ruled over the people. Citizens rights were taken from them in this process. No one realized this.

When they did the broker deal to get the loan from the Vatican, they did so via the Bank of London. At that time, they transferred all the property in D.C. Columbia over to the Corporate entity of D.C. a foreign corporation.

The forming of this corporation in D.C. is of major importance to understand, for when President Trump signed an executive order in 2018 on Election Interference/Fraud for entities both foreign and domestic, it outlined how assetts would be seized.  The President and the people knew and had the proof that a coup transpired out of the Corporation of the United States of America along with other foreign nations and was ignored by the Corporation in D.C.. They continued with their illegal steal, and the military is now in the process of seizing the assets of this foreign  country  known as THE CORPORATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  It appears that President Trump’s executive order was actually directed at the Washington D.C. corporate swamp/cabal all along.  D.C. is now walled in and filled with military guard.

Never forget that things are seldom as they appear at any given moment. This is true of absolutely everything, from a simple running play in an NFL game to international conflicts.

Testing... testing

China is obviously encouraged by the news of the Biden administration:

Taiwan recorded no fewer than 13 incursions by Chinese military planes into its air defense identification zone (ADIZ) in a single day Saturday (Jan. 23), the most of any such incidents within one day so far this year.

According to CNA, one Y-8 anti-submarine aircraft, four J-16 fighter jets and eight H-6K bombers ventured into Taiwan's ADIZ during the day.

Earlier, the Liberty Times reported that Taiwan’s Air Force scrambled a total of 26 jets between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to counter seven incursions, which all occurred in the southwest corner of the ADIZ, the Liberty Times reported.

My impression is that China is simply waiting for the US military to be committed to war with Iran before it strikes. Although I expect if there is another eight years of institutional rot, as there was under Obama, that might be sufficient so that a distraction is not even necessary. 

Don't forget that Taiwan now has its first female president, Tsai Ing-wen.

Mailvox: Let down by the Alpha

 A Voxiversity viewer correctly picks up on one source of the American people's very understandable disappointment in President Trump:

I was watching the Alpha SSH video a couple of weeks ago. - When you explained how one of the obligations of Alpha status is that non-Alphas will expect the Alpha to stand up for them I thought, "Hmmmm, so, if Trump isn't seen to be actively and openly fighting The Steal, people who were his supporters will turn on him?"

I've read a lot of comments over the last few days and that seems to be what has happened with some readers. 

Am I correctly understanding what I am seeing?

Yes, precisely. It has been 48 hours and more since President Trump left the White House for Florida. People quite rightly feel abandoned, confused, let down, and even betrayed by him. This is entirely normal SSH behavior, and I expect it will eventually turn to anger and contempt if President Trump continues to remain silent or to speak in irrelevant platitudes when he appears in public.

As for me, I have not given up hope. What part of "The Ride Never Ends" don't you understand?

Apple gets them again

I don't use Apple products. I had a //e, an original Macintosh, and a Macintosh SE, but I haven't used one since. So this just news of another charger change just amuses me:

Apple is planning to release a new thinner and lighter MacBook Air that will launch in the second half of this year or early next year, according to Bloomberg.

The report said Apple will plan to market the device as a higher-end version of the current MacBook Air, which Apple released in November with its new M1 processor. That device was among three new Apple computers to make the switch away from Intel chips.

Apple’s Mac revenue was up 28% year over year, when the company reported its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings in October. That boost was helped by millions of people forced to work from home because of Covid.

The new MacBook Air will include Apple’s magnetic charging system called MagSafe, according to the report. MagSafe was used in Apple laptops for years before it was removed over two years ago in place of newer USB-C charging. But, it’s convenient because it allows the charger to pop out easily and helps prevent the laptop from being dragged off a surface if someone pulls the cord or trips on it. MagSafe is also used in the latest iPhone 12 phones, though it has a different design and relies on a magnetic puck accessory that wirelessly charges the phones.

Pro tip: if you keep buying from them, they'll keep doing this to you.

War is back on the menu

 That certainly didn't take long

A large U.S. military convoy was seen entering northeastern Syria on Thursday, marking the first time since Damascus issued its letter to the United Nations Security Council demanding the immediate withdrawal of American forces from the Arab Republic.

According to a field report from northeastern Syria on Thursday, the U.S. military convoy entered the Al-Hasakah Governorate from neighboring Iraq, as they were observed entering the Arab Republic via the Al-Waleed Crossing.

The report said the U.S. military convoy consisted of a large amount of weapons and logistical equipment, which were transferred to their bases inside the Al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor Governorates east of the Euphrates River.

Better yet, the Russians are apparently moving to intercept it. It appears those who claim President Trump accomplished nothing in four years are very quickly going to learn otherwise. It would be nice if we could rule out a multi-front war against Iran, Russia, and China, but given the interests of those pulling Biden's strings, I don't think that's possible.

Read up on the Sicilian Expedition. It may be relevant sooner than we'd imagined.

The Monster Hunter abandons Facebook

It's probably just as well people are exiting mainstream social media before they are hounded from it:

I scrolled through my feed. There was lots and lots of links to Proper Media and gloating and virtue signaling about the end of our “national nightmare” by total strangers which I’m being shown for some baffling reason. Then there were posts by my actual friends, only anything they said which deviated from leftist orthodoxy usually had comments from angry self-righteous types trying to shame/browbeat/gaslight them into compliance.

And then the last post I read? Some local dude I friended years ago for reasons I can’t even remember posted a giant screed about how he was butt hurt and outraged because he walked into a blue collar automotive business, and some of the employees weren’t wearing masks. (GASP!) So he did his business in abject terror of looming death (he’s around my age) and immediately afterwards reported the business to their corporate headquarters and the state health department so those evil murderous (probably scraping by on just over minimum wage) employees could get fired and their (probably struggling) franchise owner could get fined into bankruptcy. Then all the comments were people telling this hero how stunning and brave he was.

At that point I closed the page, assured I was making the right call. Any loss of sales I get from no longer participating in that cesspool will more than be made up for by improvements to my mood. If leaving Facebook means that I’m going to be in a “right wing echo chamber” (as I’m continually warned by my co-dependent friends who have become accustomed to the endless abuse masquerading as “dialog”) so be it. That sounds splendid. 

The "echo chamber" argument is put forth by losers and gammas on both sides who are just terrified, not unjustifiably, that they'll be left out of the party once all the popular people leave their fever swamps. Don't take it seriously.

Stop noticing!

The Jewish News Syndicate would like everyone to please stop noticing that the US government is increasingly dominated by a small group of foreigners.

Jewish Democrats are celebrating this week and with good reason. Their party is about to take back power in Washington and end the presidency of the man they all love to hate: President Donald Trump. But adding a certain frisson of pride to their touchdown dances is the number of Cabinet members, and other officials and personalities, within the new First and Second families who are Jewish.

It’s an impressive tally. Social media is awash with posts with lists of the Jewish cabinet secretaries and undersecretaries, as well as the Jewish connections of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. When placed in the broad sweep of the nation’s history, it’s an important statement about the acceptance and the accomplishments of American Jewry. A century ago or even for several decades afterward, such a number would have been inconceivable....

Nine Jews are in the new Senate (including the new Majority Leader) and 25 in the House of Representatives, making up more than 6 percent of the total Congress. That’s more than triple the percentage of Jews in the general population. There are also two Jews out of the nine justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. Seen in that light, a Jewish secretary of state, treasury secretary, homeland security secretary, attorney general and director of national intelligence—to name a few high-level positions—are merely a reflection of the preponderance of Jews who have risen to the top of just about every sector of American society.

No doubt historians will be puzzled when one day, for absolutely no reason at all, yet another people ruled by a tiny foreign minority rebelled against their foreign rulers and overthrew them despite the best efforts of those rulers to discredit and disqualify the natural objections of their subjects.

After all, if the French rulers of Sicily had only thought to accuse Sicilians who disliked being ruled by foreigners of "anti-frenchitism", then certainly the Sicilian Vespers never would have taken place, right?

Don't be surprised to see more and more Americans aligning themselves with China and Russia against "their own" government. Especially given how that government cannot convincingly hide behind the veil of "democracy" or "the will of the people".

Waking up from libertarianism

The Dark Herald explains his intellectual evolution out of libertarianism and into Christian Nationalism.

Atheism is the bedrock of Libertarianism.  

The iron clad belief that there is only the self and that there is no one to stand in judgement over your life but the self that you created. This is the foundation for that entire school of thought.  Atheism is not an optional extra if you are  a true capital “L” Libertarian, it’s required.

Thus we hit the fundamental flaw; if there is only the self…then why have children? The future belongs to those who show up and Libertarians breed like progressives.  One child per couple leads to extinction in four generations.

And then there is the Libertarian mindset.

Okay it was obvious even when I was a college dipshit that hardcore Libertarianism was never going to get anywhere because the Libertarians themselves were far too fractious for that.  They are fundamentally incapable of organizing themselves in any number larger than five. 

Also their notions about the efficacy of a citizens militia versus a standing military were more romantic than practical.  Even before I joined the Marines I wasn’t buying into them.  For their ideas to work you have to have a lot of people that are willing to die for Libertarian ideals and those famously are not Libertarians.

Still I chugged along for decades not really questioning my beliefs.  And still saying I was one of the faithful.  I suppose I was over-invested in a bad idea.

So what happened you ask?

I woke up.

It took me long enough.

The thing is I believe in results.  We’ve had free trade and open borders (effectively) since the mid 1990s and for twenty years we’ve been pouring wealth out this country like piss out of horse.  Free trade is clearly and obviously a failure.  If you still believe in it then you aren’t facing cold hard reality.  You are living Paul Ryan’s bubble and probably collecting a US government paycheck.  Our standard of living has gone down since it was adopted, (big exception; if you already rich.  Free trade works great for you.).  

Open Borders only work if you are completely separated from the the real world.  Paul Ryan will continue to believe in them because his world view crashes and burns if he doesn’t.  He and people like him immediately begin shaking their head, no, no, no, no, no, the moment you try and point out to them that even if Mexicans wanted to assimilate they can’t due to the vast ocean of bodies that has washed up on our shores.  I mean I’ve literally seen the man start shaking his head in rejection if even the concept is raised. 

And that was the final straw for me.  Libertarians are as reality denying as any hardcore Marxist.

While I was never a capital-L Libertarian, I was a Christian libertarian until I began to examine free trade doctrine and uncovered the many flaws in even the best arguments for it. Nationalism, and specifically, Christian Nationalism, are the only true philosophies in line with Western Civilization. All the rest, from "classical liberalism" to "conservativism" are simply hapless frauds.

If they want hopium and copium

Then let's give them to the blackpillers good and hard by laying out one anon's possible post-Inaugural Q scenario. The book to which the anon refers is presumably the Department of Defense War Manual, specifically beginning with page 754. Also note drop 4524: [D] + China = 11.3, which could refer to 11.3 End of Occupation and Duration of Geneva Convention Obligations.

Like many of you, I am in shock by today's and then I realized why it had to happen and that Q told us it would happen and, why this NEEDED to happen. Q did tell us that a SCARE EVENT would be needed. Well, are you scared yet?

1) Q posts 4821 and 4822, from Oct. 7th 2020, told us about Biden being sworn in and would the countries he took bribes from then be in control of the government. [Important point I will be coming back to].

2) Biden had to take a private jet to Washington, D.C. and was not sent a government plan. This was the first time in history this has happened [Again, I will get back to it].

3) Many of us assumed when Trump and those in his administration were referring to the next administration it meant the military. We expected him to step down (to remain neutral as Q said) while all this went down. Trump did say that the next administration would take over at noon today

Like many, I thought this was over when Biden was sworn in as he now became the CiC. Boy, was I wrong. Because of the fraud (as pointed out), if the military has the proof of it then they have a duty under military code to remove the false government and restore a new legal civilian government under military code 11.3 which triggered when Biden was sworn in today (Q#26: when 11.3 verifies as 1 st marker).

There was a fear in the McCarthy era that the communists could take over our government, so provisions were put in place for the military to protect us should that happen. These provisions allow the military to take control while they remove the belligerent government and restore a legal civilian government (with the military running the elections to do that). Literally, the military was put in place as the last line of defense of the Constitution should an illegal government be installed.

This is why they didn't send a government plane for the President-Elect - because they know he is not a legitimate President and, once he was sworn in, the government became illegitimate (belligerent) and the military is now responsible for restoring legitimate civilian government (otherwise foreign powers will gain control - see #1 above).

Q said the end wouldn't be for everybody. We have been told by Trump. Flynn and other that America would soon get a lesson in the Constitution. Well folks, effective at noon today, when Biden illegally swore in with assistance of foreign nations he just made the government illegitimate and effectively put the military in control.

So, while like many, I thought it was over when Biden was sworn in today, I realized Q told us it NEEDED to happen for the military to assume control without it being a military coup. Q said it all had to be done by the book.

They are not us. None of them will ever be permitted to post here or participate in any of our projects in the future. No doubt we'll be adding more as the day goes on.

Of course, since they're almost uniformly Gammas, most of them are still trying to comment here. Some are even trying to backtrack and explain that they weren't really blackpilling. No. Just shut up and go away. What part of "no one wants you here" is hard to understand?

Some examples of their attempted contributions to the discourse:

  • I guess Vox will just move on an ignore his huge error and failure here. Just as he did when he made an utter fool of himself trying to disprove the theory of evolution to JP Garlepy. Note that Vox merely rehashed creationist pseudoscience and presented it as his own thinking in that session.
  • I look forward to your blog views to begin “skyrocketing downwards” as your Big Orange Daddy says.
  • I beg you, after seventeen years, don't jump off this cliff. You're not a boomer, you don't need to commit intellectual suicide. No one is ever going to listen to you again, except boomers.
  • What is wrong with you, Vox. These guys look to you for rational analysis and commentary and all you give them is false hope based on nothing. You've been wrong all along the way for weeks now. Yet you keep it up. Don't keep fooling these people. Tell the the truth.
  • A bunch of NG drafted in from mainly blue states is not part of some Trump 11th hour storm you clowns. It's over, Trump is a civnat boomer with a gonzo mouth and some comic timing.

Failure has consequences

If, as it is now widely assumed, President Trump's courage failed him, his intrinsic Boomer civic nationalism won out over his genuine patriotism, and he failed to seize the historic opportunity that lay before him, it appears much of the good work he accomplished over the last four years will be rapidly undone.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris arrive at the Capitol to make history: New president is minutes away from being sworn in as former presidents mount display of unity after Donald Trump snubbing him and flying to Florida.

After becoming president, Biden will immediately begin work on signing at least 15 executive orders he promised would take priority from the moment he entered the White House.

IMMIGRATION  

END THE 'MUSLIM BAN'

'A priority for Biden is nixing the ban on those traveling to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries – one of Trump's first orders as president, which was dubbed the 'Muslim travel ban.'

While Biden plans to reverse the order, his administration vows to improve screening of visitors by strengthening information sharing with foreign governments.

HALT THE WALL 

During Trump's presidency, more than 400 miles of border wall have been built, whether that be new portions of the wall or improvements to existing fencing. 

Biden will immediately halt ongoing construction of the wall, but will need to review active contracts and how that money could potentially be redirected.

So far, $15 billion in taxpayer dollars have been allocated for more than 700 miles of border wall. It is still unclear how many miles are under contract and what penalties the government would have to pay if they were canceled now.

DACA IS BACK

His orders also seek to fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, a signature effort during the Obama administration that provided hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants protection from deportation and a pathway to citizenship. 

CORONAVIRUS

MASK MANDATE 

Biden's team has repeatedly promised to take the coronavirus pandemic more seriously and implement more strict public health measures they claim will stop the spread of the disease.

Biden is mandating mask wearing and social distancing in all federal buildings, on federal lands and by federal employees and contractors. He is also challenging Americans to wear a face covering for the first 100 days of his administration.

VACCINE MOVES 

He also shared in unveiling his coronavirus team that his goal is to distribute and administer 100 million shots in his first 100 days as president.

EVICTIONS, FORECLOSURES STAYED AND STUDENT LOAN PAUSE 

On Day One, Biden also plans to extend a moratorium on foreclosures and extend the pause on federal student loan payments, both initiatives started by Trump and extended a few times already in the midst of the pandemic.

BACK INTO WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION 

During Trump presidency, he withdrew from several foreign organizations and pacts, which Biden plans to reenter – including the World Health Organization. 

The president withdrew from the World Health Organization in 2020 after accusing it of incompetence in its handling of the coronavirus pandemic. He also claimed it caved to Chinese pressure over COVID-19 and lamented the U.S. helped fund the group too much.

Biden's incoming White House coronavirus coordinate Jeff Zients announced top infectious disease experts at National Institute of Health, Dr. Anthony Fauci, will deliver a speech Thursday to the WHO.

In the speech as the new head of the U.S. delegation to WHO, Fauci, who often sparred with Trump over the last year, will lay out how Biden's administration plans to work with the group on reforms.

CLIMATE  

BACK INTO PARIS ACCORD 

Trump also withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord, lamenting it wasn't fair that the U.S. was funding much of the program aimed at cutting global fossil fuel emissions while other countries, like China, contribute much more to these emissions.

Biden will sign an executive order to rejoin the Paris climate accord, fulfilling a campaign pledge to get back into the global climate pact on Day One.

It will take 30 days for the U.S. to officially be back in. 

CANCEL KEYSTONE XL

In an effort to roll back more of Trump's climate-related orders, Biden will also revoke a presidential permit for the Keystone XL oil and gas pipeline.

BAN ON ARCTIC DRILLING IS BACK AND EMISSIONS STANDARDS ARE REVIEWED

He also plans to implement a temporary moratorium on new oil and gas leasing in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and review Trump's freeze on vehicle and emission standards. 

NATIONAL MONUMENTS ROLLBACK FROZEN 

The incoming president also wants to set in motion an evaluation of Trump's cut in protections for some national monuments.

CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT ON ALL DECISIONS 

Federal agencies under Biden's presidency will also be issued a new requirement to consider the impact that fossil field emissions have on climate change and how that will affect disadvantaged communities and future generations.  

GOVERNMENT

ETHICS

A pointed order will compel federal employees to take an ethics pledge that commits them to upholding the independence of the Justice Department.

CENSUS: EVERYONE WILL BE COUNTED 

He will revoke a Trump order that sought to exclude noncitizens from the census.

RACE AND ENVIRONMENT MARCHING ORDERS 

Biden will order a review of all Trump regulations and executive actions that are deemed damaging to the environment or public health. 

He will order federal agencies to prioritize racial equity and review policies that reenforce systemic racism. 

It's hard to comprehend that President Trump is willing to allow all of this to happen to the people about whom he obviously cares so much, and to the nation that he loves. He still has 17 minutes left, but at this point, it's hard to blame anyone who believes his courage failed him in the end.

UPDATE: Joe Biden has been officially sworn in by John Roberts. However, Washington DC is still occupied by troops. Focus on the material possibilities, not the superficial ceremonies. In other words, as always, wait 48 hours before reaching any conclusions.

UPDATE: Just a random thought. It's unlikely, but it is going to be extremely amusing if "10 days of darkness" turns out to be a reference to how long Biden is permitted to pretend he is President. I always thought that was more likely than a reference to a communications blackout or show trials.

Sendoff ceremony Andrews AFB


One curious anomaly: 17 US flags behind the podium.

UPDATE: FFS, who gives a flying fuck about vaccines at this point? If this is a headfake, it's a damnably convincing one. About the only good thing one can say is that Melania looks great.

UPDATE: Okay, "we will be back in some form" and "we will see you soon" is mildly encouraging. Still no mention of the election, Biden, or a concession. It looks over, to be sure, but it isn't actually over. Not yet, anyhow.

UPDATE: Shills, please note that Biden is still not the President of the United States. If, against my expectations, he does somehow become President of the United States in the next 24 hours, we will all be sure to note that you were the first to surrender and that you did so before the battle was over.\

UPDATE: I took down the Madrid explosion post as it does not appear to have any connection to any international events. CNN has reported a bomb threat at the U.S. Supreme Court, but the all-clear was just given.

Nuclear anomalies

Another intriguing inauguration anomaly:

Donald Trump's decision to shun Joe Biden's inauguration has caused serious logistical problems for perhaps the most sensitive section of the presidential handover: the nuclear codes. During a normal inauguration ceremony, the nuclear football, which contains the equipment the president uses to authenticate his orders and launch a nuclear strike, is handed over from one presidential aide to another at the stroke of noon.

Trump will leave Washington DC at around 8am, however, and fly to his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago. As president, he will take the nuclear football with him.

Stephen Schwartz, a nonresident senior fellow at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, told CNN that the officials involved would have had to come up with an elaborate work-around. 'There are at least three to four identical 'footballs': one follows the president, one follows the vice president, and one traditionally is set aside for the designated survivor at events like inaugurations and State of the Union addresses,' he said. 'On 20 January, the extra footballs will be out of town somewhere with their designees, leaving just Mike Pence's briefcase unless the White House Military Office has prepared (or already has on hand) another backup for Mr Biden.'

The Constitution gives Trump control of nuclear attacks until the very second that Biden is sworn in.

Curiouser and curiouser....

Get Brave

If you aren't already using it as your main browser, you'd better at least get accustomed to it given Big Tech's assault on internet freedom:

Brave, one of the most secure and fastest browsers, has now taken crucial steps in extending its support to a decentralized web. Brave is now going to offer native integration with a peer-to-peer networking protocol and is the first mainstream browser to do.

The browser makes use of the IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) technology to improve upon the existing HTTP protocol, while also increasing the speed of accessing content. Generally speaking, HTTP obtains information from a central server. But IPFS, however, obtains information from a network of distributed nodes.

Simply put, using IPFS is more or less like downloading from BitTorrent instead of downloading from a central server. So each time you access a website from Brave browser, the website content is obtained from various distributed nodes.

IPFS not only helps lower server costs for website owners and content publishers but also helps make web content more immune to censorship, promoting internet freedom.

Brave has already been offering early support of IPFS since 2018; but with the latest 1.19 version, users can now use IPFS directly. URLs must either be started with ipfs:// instead of http:// or a “full IPFS node in one click” must be installed.

They speak in symbols

I'm no semiotician specializing in occultic esotericism, but the Turner Classic Movies schedule for January 20th does tend to cause one to raise an eyebrow. Notice a certain pattern?

  • 6:00 AM Ode To Billy Joe (1976)
  • 8:00 AM Polo Joe (1936)
  • 9:30 AM The Fabulous Joe (1947)
  • 10:45 AM The Story of G. I. Joe (1945)
  • 12:45 PM Joe Smith, American (1942)
  • 2:00 PM A Guy Named Joe (1943)
  • 4:15 PM Pal Joey (1957)

  • 2:45 AM Penguin Pool Murder (1932)
  • 4:00 AM Murder on the Blackboard (1934)
UPDATE: as Luuk points out, 8 "Joe" movies and 6 "Murder" movies. Cassell's Dictionary of Slang: the meaning of "86" expanded during the 1970s to mean “to kill, to murder; to execute judicially”

President Trump leaves the White House

 Read the speech. Read the whole thing and read it carefully.

For nearly 250 years, in the face of every challenge, Americans have always summoned our unmatched courage, confidence, and fierce independence. These are the miraculous traits that once led millions of everyday citizens to set out across a wild continent and carve out a new life in the great West. It was the same profound love of our God-given freedom that willed our soldiers into battle and our astronauts into space.

As I think back on the past four years, one image rises in my mind above all others.  Whenever I traveled all along the motorcade route, there were thousands and thousands of people. They came out with their families so that they could stand as we passed, and proudly wave our great American flag. It never failed to deeply move me.  I knew that they did not just come out to show their support of me; they came out to show me their support and love for our country. 

This is a republic of proud citizens who are united by our common conviction that America is the greatest nation in all of history.  We are, and must always be, a land of hope, of light, and of glory to all the world.  This is the precious inheritance that we must safeguard at every single turn.

For the past four years, I have worked to do just that.  From a great hall of Muslim leaders in Riyadh to a great square of Polish people in Warsaw; from the floor of the Korean Assembly to the podium at the United Nations General Assembly; and from the Forbidden City in Beijing to the shadow of Mount Rushmore, I fought for you, I fought for your family, I fought for our country.  Above all, I fought for America and all it stands for — and that is safe, strong, proud, and free. Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning.  There’s never been anything like it.  The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle but instead only grow stronger by the day. As long as the American people hold in their hearts deep and devoted love of country, then there is nothing that this nation cannot achieve.  Our communities will flourish.  Our people will be prosperous.  Our traditions will be cherished.  Our faith will be strong.  And our future will be brighter than ever before.

I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart, an optimistic spirit, and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come.

Thank you, and farewell. God bless you. God bless the United States of America. 

This is widely supposed to be a concessionary speech. Perhaps it is. But I don't think so. Perhaps "the new administration" to which he will hand power at noon on Wednesday is the Biden administration. But I don't think so.

In any case, remember the 48 hours rule.

UPDATE: And now they're all showing up in DC....

Lady Gaga prays at the Capitol for 'a day of peace for all Americans' ahead of Biden-Harris inauguration... as she joins stars jetting into D.C.

UPDATE: As I previously told you, this guy clearly hasn't been commanding the military in DC.

How petty can you get? Biden and family arrive in DC on charter plane after Trump REFUSES them government jet.

Lin Woods accuses Roberts, Clinton, and Pence

From his account on Telegram:

Chief Justice John Roberts must resign today. Over the past several weeks, I have met with a courageous whistleblower who has risked his life to tell you the truth. Jeffrey Epstein arranged for the adoption of Roberts’ children. Roberts used the children to gain entry into the cabal of power & influence. FBI, Rod Rosenstein & Crowdstrike knew it all.

Vice President Pence must resign today. Pence is on videos captured by FBI. Discussions about murdering judges. Roberts was involved. So was Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton thought she had rigged the 2016 election. The plan after her election was to kill federal judges so that Hillary could stack the judiciary. US Supreme Court targeted. FBI was complicit.

Justice Scalia learned of the plan to kill members of the judiciary. He reported it to the White House. Shortly thereafter, Justice Scalia was murdered. I have previously provided the entire interview of the whistleblower to agents of the U.S. Secret Service. His evidence reveals a level of evil, perversion, & criminality at the highest levels of government that is so shocking that it is hard to believe.

Believe it.

I don't have a Telegram account and I have not seen the videos, so I cannot confirm or reject the credibility of Woods's accusations. A priori, it certainly sounds completely over-the-top crazy. But if you have a Telegram account, you can watch the videos and decide for yourself. I'd be interested in a transcript of them, if there is actually anything substantive there.

The idea is planted

Further to the "sacrificial lamb" theory.

President-elect Joe Biden's daughter Ashley says she is 'worried' about her father's safety at Wednesday's inauguration... 24 hours before Biden is inaugurated at the 46th President of the United States, Ashley voiced her concerns over the safety of the event.

  • There are consequences for interfering in the democratic process. Starting today, we are imposing visa restrictions on those involved in election interference in Tanzania. We remain committed to working together to advance democracy and mutual prosperity for both our countries.

The Narrative is just weird

Donald Trump is LIVID! So JEALOUS and ENVIOUS of all the Hollywood star power wielded by Joe Biden!

Donald Trump is furious that Joe Biden has managed to attract a star-studded lineup to his inauguration, it has been claimed - in sharp contrast to the president's own ceremony four years ago. Trump, who will leave the White House before noon on Wednesday, was reported by The Washington Post to be angry that a roll call of stars are signing up to Biden's event.

While Trump famously struggled to attract big names, Biden has confirmed Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Tom Hanks and country star Garth Brooks for his event.

What the Actual? It appears the mainstream media has gone so deeply into hiding that its daily Narrative is now being written by 13-year-old female interns.

They sound confident

Nancy Pelosi and Hilary Clinton are now publicly accusing Putin of responsibility for the Storming of Capitol Hill:

Democratic bigwigs Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi have called for a probe into Russian President Vladimir Putin’s – real or entirely imagined – role in the Capitol riot, theorizing that he may have personally ordered the unrest.

The House speaker sat down with the failed 2016 presidential candidate for an interview on Clinton’s podcast, ‘You and Me Both,’ on Monday, where they discussed the bout of chaos in Washington, DC earlier this month. At one point during the conversation, Clinton argued that President Donald Trump “has other agendas” – though hastened to add that “I don’t think we yet know” what those are – wondering aloud about “who pulls his strings.”

“I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton said, asking Pelosi: “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything they can pull together and explain what happened?”

Pelosi responded in the affirmative, saying that when it comes to Trump, “all roads lead to Putin.”

“I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin. Because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world,” Pelosi added confidently, despite being fuzzy on the details. These people, unbeknownst to them, they are Putin puppets. They were doing Putin’s business when they [stormed the Capitol], at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States. So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission, and there is strong support in the Congress to do that.”

I don't know about you but I'm convinced. And it's informative to observe that they're more interested in talking about Putin's nefarious shenanigans and President Trump's mysterious agenda than about the new administration that is supposed to be inaugurated tomorrow.

"A peaceful transition...."

It looks like the cat is out of the bag now, thanks to the Major General who commands the District of Columbia National Guard:

Happy Holiday to Dr. Martin Luther King, and please allow me to say how proud I am of the almost 25,000 National Guardsman who have come in from all 50 States and Territories to help support the Secret Service and the police departments with a peaceful transition to military power.

That sure didn't sound like "to the Biden Adminstration" to me.

Do you think they don't know?

Democratic politicians are afraid to enter the killbox:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday he had canceled his plans to attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration this week and will instead stay in Albany due to security concerns at state capitols around the country.

“The inauguration is Wednesday. I was planning to go — I’m not going to,” Cuomo said during a virtual press briefing, adding, “I think my place is to stay in New York state given this possible circumstance.”

Hi-larious. They recognize what's going on. Why don't you? Meanwhile, President Trump issues what might reasonably be described as an Executive Order on Banning The Deep State From Assassinating Cops.

Executive Order on Protecting Law Enforcement Officers, Judges, Prosecutors, And Their Families

Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers should not have to choose between public service and subjecting themselves and their families to danger. My Administration has no higher priorities than preserving the rule of law in our country and protecting the men and women who serve under its flag. Accordingly, I am ordering enhanced protections for judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers. Federal law already allows Federal and State law enforcement officers to protect themselves by carrying a concealed firearm, but the Federal Government can do more to cut the red tape that Federal law enforcement officers must navigate to exercise their right. The current threat to Federal prosecutors also demands an expansion of their ability to carry a concealed firearm, as allowed under the Department of Justice’s existing authorities. Finally, the Congress should act expeditiously to adopt legislation extending the right to carry a concealed firearm to Federal judges and pass other measures that will expand our capacity to combat threats of violence against judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement officers.

Choosing success

I still believe that Bill Belichick is the greatest NFL coach in history. But the results of this season make it clear that Tom Brady was not successful because of his coach in New England:

Sean Murphy-Bunting is 23 years old, and just 21 months ago he was a second-round pick out of Central Michigan. He spent his rookie year as a reserve corner on Bruce Arians’s first Buccaneers team, a group that hung around a while, but was kept out of the playoffs by consecutive losses to end the season.

In short, he really didn’t know what was coming when Tom Brady became a teammate.

Now, he knows.

“Tom’s not only a superstar, he’s a champion,” Murphy-Bunting said. “So he brings that mentality, that mindset each and every day to work. He’s a true vet and a true professional. And he just brings the excitement and energy out of his guys. He shows up to meetings early, he sits in the front every meeting, he always has his notepad, whether it’s a five-minute team meeting or a 30-minute team meeting.

“His habits are just so good that they rub off on everybody else. It makes everyone want to buy into what he’s doing and how he’s doing it, because of how successful he’s been by doing these things.”

You can't choose to have more talent than the next guy, but you can always choose to work harder than him. Tom Brady has nothing to prove. He has SIX Super Bowl rings. He is the Greatest Of All Time. But one reason why he is the greatest is because he continues to push himself every day, in every meeting, every practice, and every game.

The Sicilian Defense

Monkeywerxus reaches similar conclusions to my own based on his observations of recent events:

Take a look at the amount of military in play in Washington DC for the inauguration.  There are multiple parameters set up, ID’s being checked to enter and exit the city, miles of razor wire and fencing, not to mention some 25,000 troops on the ground - “for an inauguration.”  Doesn’t add up, does it?  

Makes sense why Pelosi wants to make the event virtual and why Joe has canceled all of his rehearsals! Clearly, he doesn’t want people getting an advanced look at his security detail and I imagine he isn’t feeling warm and fuzzy about all of this. They certainly seem to be very nervous, but why should they be? They have this whole thing in the bag, right? Not so fast. 

Folks, what we are about to witness is the greatest military event since D-Day and Normandy Beach in WW2. NOTHING can stop what is coming. No doubt, blood will be shed. Please pray for our President, our Troops, confusion in the camp of the enemy, and for our Brothers and Sisters in Christ.  

What I would expect over the next several days based on the above drop - an EBS from POTUS and then likely an internet and media blackout with a short-term lockdown for our safety.  

For God and Country. 

One final thing, do not get caught up in the hype of this whole Chinese invasion at our borders. It is disinfo. Trump and our military would be acting completely different if this were taking place and our military air traffic does not support this information. 

The Chinese Invasion theory is so obviously ridiculous that I haven't even seen fit to mention it. It's actually dumber than the idea that Japan was going to invade the West Coast in 1941. First, China doesn't have the naval transport capability to invade Taiwan across the Formosa Strait, which is only 130km wide at its narrowest point, so it certainly doesn't have the ability to invade the continental USA across the entire Pacific Ocean.

Second, the 5GW that the Chinese have been waging against the United States as laid out in Unrestricted Warfare specifically precludes this sort of military action that plays to the enemy's natural advantages. It's entirely contrary to Chinese military theory; it's only virtue would be that of complete and utter surprise due to the very high probability of complete failure combined with 100-percent casualties.


UPDATE: Quelle surprise! The rehearsal for the Biden inauguration on Wednesday was cancelled again today. How on Earth did we know that was going to happen?

For those who claim that Q is always wrong and that nothing is happening, note that this is what has already happened. So, applying my guideline that the utility of any model lies in the accuracy of its predictive capabilities, what supposedly comes next that we can use to confirm or deny these interpretations?

  • Communications blackout through whatever Range7 is.
  • All air travel though Range6 is blocked. This appears to include US and UK.
  • Events taking place in China related to 3 Gorges Dam, Wuhan Labs, and Tiananmen Square
  • Public events will kick off on Tuesday, not Wednesday
  • All public communications are secured.
  • Contingency government established.
  • Declassification of the activities of FBI Director Wray and CIA Director Haspel.
This will all sound crazy to the committed skeptic, to be sure. But then, I note that in addition to 25k+ troops occupying the nation's capital and VP Pence speaking to the specified military unit yesterday, we're also seeing temporary blackouts all over the world that appear to be test runs, including one at a very structural level that rendered the UATV and SG servers inaccessible for a little while yesterday. And this morning, the UK implemented new Covid-related travel restrictions that cut the capacity for air travel between the US and the UK by 85 percent and requires both quarantining and facial recognition of all international travellers.

Covid collapse in air travel between US and UK will cost economy £11bn this year as business leaders call for airbridge between London and New York. Capacity of trans-Atlantic flights this month is down 85 per cent from last year.... The new rules came into force at 4am with all air corridors scrapped and every arrival facing 10 days quarantine or five days if they have another's test and produce a negative result. It came as all travellers into the UK face being forced to stay in hotels under plans to further lock down Britain's borders from today until February 15 amid calls for enforced quarantine.

The media, on the other hand, expects President Trump to issue a few pardons and fly off to Florida.

The outgoing president is due to hold a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, in Maryland, on the morning of Joe Biden's inauguration. He will then depart the nation's capital on Air Force One and head to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida before his successor is sworn in. 

Both narratives can't be correct, so we'll find out soon enough. In any event, you might want to avoid any unnecessary travel in the next three days. Just in case....
