Thought for the day

"The great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they are realities, and are often even more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are." -- Niccoló Machiavelli, "The Discourses." 1517.

The world’s largest active volcano, Hawaii’s Mauna Loa, has erupted for the first time in almost four decades, authorities said Monday.

Mauna Loa erupted at 11:30 p.m. local time Sunday, in what was its first eruption since 1984, according to the Hawaii Volcano Observatory.

As the eruption began in Moku‘āweoweo, the summit caldera of Mauna Loa located inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the US Geological Survey raised the alert level for the volcano from “advisory” to a “warning.”

“At this time, lava flows are contained within the summit area and are not threatening downslope communities,” the USGS said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un says his country's ultimate goal is to possess the world's most powerful nuclear force at the launch of his country's largest ballistic missile.

The announcement comes after Mr Kim inspected a test of the country's new Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), and pledged to counter US nuclear threats with nuclear weapons.

He said building the nuclear force was for reliably protecting the dignity and sovereignty of the state and its people.

"Its ultimate goal is to possess the world's most powerful strategic force, the absolute force unprecedented in the century," he said.

Elon Musk tweeted a hard truth about the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” false narrative from the Michael Brown shooting, which led to the Ferguson (MO) riots and national prominence for the Black Lives Matter movement, which adopted the slogan.

It started when musk tweeted about some shirts he found stocked at Twitter headquarters with the hashtag #StayWoke

According to Business Insider, Musk’s mockery upset some people because #StayWoke was a BLM slogan:

The shirts, which date back to 2016, were made to support the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and were promoted by Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey, who spoke in support of the BLM movement at a Recode event in 2016.

Dorsey said that he took two weeks off to work with the civil rights organization in 2014, creating a Twitter hashtag to promote the movement following the shooting of Michael Brown, a Black teen who was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was unarmed at the time, and the shooting sparked protests over police shootings of Black people.

Dorsey said at the Recode event, where Recode said organizers handed out the t-shirts, that the hashtag represents, “being aware, staying aware [of] what you’re seeing on the TV screen [in Ferguson] versus what’s happening on the ground.”

The latest case of a fashion company caught attempting to normalize pedophilia is Balenciaga busted this week for displaying two very small young child models holding teddy bears in bondage. BDSM kink deemed so chic in high society circles apparently is the targeted audience of this high-end luxury fashion house headquartered in France when it displayed its spring 2023 line of teddy bear apparel. One campaign ad photo depicted a toddler lying face down on a couch with candles, empty wine glasses and a dog collar on a coffee table. Another photograph showed a handbag sprawled amongst some legal documents from the US Supreme Court ruling on child pornography, leaving no doubt of the fashion company’s intent to cross the line promoting its brand of pedophilia, child sex abuse and fetishization. After it drew such a furor on social media, Balenciaga was quick to apologize although its feeble damage control effort only enflamed public reaction further with the undeniably disingenuous statement:

We strongly condemn abuse of children in any form. We stand for children safety and well-being.

Webmaster addition: I worked in advertising for many years. The client has to sign off on the ads before they are ever released to the public. Balenciaga knowingly allowed these ads out!

The Department of Justice‘s FARA Unit received Jankowicz’s filing on Nov. 18. According to her filing, she registered as an agent of the London-based Center for Information Resilience (CIR), a group devoted to countering disinformation online.

For more people, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends to overeat turkey and then pass out in front of the TV while trying to watch the big game.

When asked what they are thankful for, most people will say the love of family and friends, having a roof over their heads, or, in America, living in the greatest country in the world.

However, as Fox News reported, the Nation, a far-left magazine, interviewed several women who were thankful for something else entirely.

“As Americans gathered around the dinner table with loved ones this Thanksgiving, one liberal magazine shared stories from women who say they are thankful for having had abortions.

“The Nation published Thursday morning’s article titled ‘We’re Thankful for our Abortions.’ In it, writer Nikiya Natale interviews women who say having had an abortion (in some cases more than one) has given them opportunities in life they wouldn’t have otherwise had.”

China has signalled that it will stick with its longstanding zero-Covid-19 policy despite mass demonstrations breaking out across the country over its harsh containment measures, with some protesters openly calling for the resignation of President Xi Jinping.

The unprecedented wave of protests spread to Shanghai as well as universities in some cities, including Beijing and Nanjing.

And in a rare instance of public protest against the Chinese leadership, a video showed a group shouting: “Down with the Communist Party, down with Xi Jinping!”

In a front-page editorial on Sunday, the Communist Party’s official People’s Daily said China would “unwaveringly persist” in its Covid-19 policies and that “victory will be attained only by persisting to the end”.

Failed Portland Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler recently appeared to laugh and scoff at a woman during a virtual city council meeting when she raised concerns about the homeless crisis in the city and concerns about the safety of Portland’s citizens.

While Portland is supposed to be a left wing utopia, the homeless problem there is so bad that some people are selling their houses in the Democrat run city to escape from it.

An 82-year-old died after he was brutally beaten in an unprovoked attack at a Portland bus stop.

The city was embroiled conflict for days after the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling on abortion, smashing windows and vandalizing several buildings.

In April, Antifa terrorists attacked participants of the People’s Convoy from an overpass throwing  paint-filled balloons and rocks onto vehicles along the 205 North.

One woman died and five others were injured in a mass shooting involving Antifa militants at an anti-police protest.

One business owner in the city, clothing store Rains PDX,  has had enough and permanently closed the store after endless break-ins, five in the last three weeks alone,  that financially ruined the business.

So, who is going to make the decision on what ‘hate’ speech is?

Anything that the communist, socialist, or dictator regime views as offensive is considered hate speech. The definition of “hate speech” is an attempt to silence you.

Webmaster addition: The truth is hate speech to those with something to hide!

Jamil Hubbard, 30, has been found guilty of running over and murdering a stranger for “being white.”

In 2018, Hubbard ran over 56-year-old emergency medical technician Jerry Wolkowitz in a New Jersey parking lot, because of the color of his skin.

On Friday, Hubbard was convicted of first-degree Murder, first-degree Bias Intimidation, second-degree Eluding, third-degree Theft from the Person, third-degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, and third-degree Motor Vehicle Theft.

The Office of the Monmouth County Prosecutor said in a press release, “At approximately 7:15 a.m. on the morning of Tuesday, May 1, 2018, members of the Freehold Township Police Department and other first responders rushed to the Chesterfield Apartments on Harding Road on a report of a physical altercation involving a person struck by a vehicle. At that location they found Wolkowitz in the apartment complex’s parking lot, having sustained severe injuries to his head, abdomen, and back. Wolkowitz was subsequently rushed to Jersey Shore University Medical Center for emergency treatment.”

For years, it was regarded as a wild conspiracy theory dreamt up in the basement of some creepy D.C. pizza shop. Today, however, the “elite pedophilia problem” has become a mainstream news talking point, at least over at Fox where Tucker Carlson addressed it openly in a recent segment.

Carlson discussed how those at the highest levels of politics, finance, and entertainment are child predators who feast on innocence to fuel their globalist endeavors. He also talked about Jeffrey Epstein, who even after being arrested for having sexual relations with minors was still hobnobbing it up with the likes of Oprah.

“How did he do that?” Carlson asked during the segment. “Why didn’t anybody say anything? Why did people keep eating with him?”

“Well, at the very least, we can conclude, based on the evidence that there is a tolerance for pedophilia among some, among the most powerful in our society, a tolerance that you would not find in, say, your average middle class American family.” (Related: Remember when Tucker Carlson called out the January 6 “insurrectionists” as FBI assets?)

Ukrainian-born Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman (US Army Ret.), a key figure in the first impeachment of President Trump over his “perfect” phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in 2019, has gone to war against Elon Musk over Musk’s purchase of Twitter. Vindman is yet another in a growing list of progressive heroes attacking Musk on Twitter, posting attacks on Musk on Saturday and Sunday.

Vindman attacked Musk overnight, saying, “Kinda weird that @elonmusk gets to decide how like a half-billion people communicate. Way too much power for one erratic individual to wield, don’t you think?” (Vindman edited the tweet to correct a misspelling of ‘weird’.

Musk responded indirectly to Vindman with a post replying to Noam Blum who posted about the series of perfect replications of the Vindman tweet by other accounts. Musk commented, “They’re bots in human form”

Musk followed with a comment on spamming and then a comment on Vindman, whom he did not tag, “Note, spamming, whether done by a set of humans or bots is against ToS”…”Vindman is both puppet & puppeteer. Question is who pulls his strings … ?”

In a tweet on Tuesday, Nov. 22, Musk claimed that a coalition of activist groups negotiated a deal with him not to make any content decisions, including the unbanning of any accounts. Musk says, “They broke the deal.”

A Twitter user recently reminded Musk of a tweet he had made on October 28th about not unbanning anyone before forming a moderation council.

“Twitter will be forming a content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints.

No major content decisions or account reinstatement will happen before that council convenes.”

A few days after this announcement, on November 2nd, Musk shared:
“Twitter’s content moderation council will include representatives with widely divergent views, which will certainly include the civil rights community and groups who face hate-fueled violence.”

Elon’s reply to this reminder was blunt.
“A large coalition of political/social activist groups agreed not to try to kill Twitter by starving us of advertising revenue if I agreed to this condition.

They broke the deal.”

Kash Patel shared in Kash’s Corner on Epoch TV that if the FBI had informants at the Jan 6 protests, then the FBI knew they had operatives in the crowd.

In a recent Epoch TV show, Kash Patel pointed out that the FBI had to know for up to a year that the Jan 6 protests were going to occur.  If this is the case then the FBI must have known about the operatives in the crowd that day.

Chris Wray has repeatedly lied about this in front of Congress.

What is going on?

Kash Patel shared on his show, Kash’s Corner that the FBI has to train confidential human sources for a year before putting them into action.  In this case there were 8 confidential FBI informants at the Jan 6 protests with the Proud Boys, several more with the Oath Keepers, and several others in the crowd

If this is the truth then Wray lied repeatedly to Congress.
