Get it down

I have a new computer, and am faced with the onerous task of transferring what is on the old to the new. In the past I have simply moved everything, no effort required.  But now as I approach my 70th year, I am for-real retired, and want to do some pruning. With advances in mechanical capacities, each of us is given enough computer memory to easily contain everything we’ve ever written or photographed. Most of it is forgettable, but with computer memory, it is stored. I want to live a good long time, so don’t go morose on me, but having experienced the passing of my entire birth family, I realized that with their deaths go their computers and every memory stored thereon. Only things on paper survive.

Is Libra the U.S. dollar's executioner?

Founding members of Geneva-based Libra Association.

Tony Cartalucci has just published a gem worth a look. Social media giant, Facebook, is the visible leader (face) in a crypto-currency revolution that has the capability to combine information control and financial control in one neat little package.

“Imagine Facebook carrying out a similar campaign to their current one of political censorship, but with an added monetary component – not only removing the West’s political opponents from their social media network and effectively silencing them, but crippling them financially by freezing their accounts and denying them access to the massive digital global economy they hope to create and control through Libra.”

The real function of the Democratic Party

The following comment is from “Allen” and posted at Moon of Alabama. I noticed it because it was reprinted in whole at Reptile Dysfunction. I have not paid much attention to impeachment because I don’t know the script, I don’t know what surprises they have in store. Whatever it is, it does not affect our constitutional republic, since we don’t have one anyway.

The Democratic Party plays an indispensable role in society’s political machinery. This doesn’t mean it has any power, in terms of controlling the state or setting policy. It means that without the existence of the Dem Party, the US could no longer maintain the pretense that it’s a “democracy.” If the Dem Party disintegrated, the US would be revealed for what it really is — a one-party state ruled by a narrow alliance of business interests. …

Temperature proxies

Oxygen is the third most abundant element in the universe, behind hydrogen and helium, it is one of the most important and abundant elements on Earth.

Molecular oxygen O₂ is produced from water by cyanobacteria, algae, and plants during photosynthesis and is part of cellular respiration for all living organisms. Green algae and cyanobacteria in marine environments produce ~70% of the free oxygen produced on Earth and the rest is produced by terrestrial plants. …

Look over here…. Impeachment, bla, bla, bla.

While most Americans were following the fake impeachment hearings Congress was quietly reauthorizing the 2001 Patriot Act.  Without action it would have expired in December.  Yes, enough House Democrats joined Republicans to keep it in play at least until March, 2020. 

There was no appetite to eliminate Section 215 of the 2001 Patriot Act, probably one of the most controversial elements of the Act.  Section 215 authorizes mass phone – including text messages – records collection by the NSA.

More Fancy Weapons

Captain Beyond

“Laser weapons systems have tracked and detected targets including small rockets, boats, UAVs, and trucks.”  Laser weapons are also capable of taking down buildings, igniting forest fires and incinerating whole towns. 

Since commoners are the enemy of the power elite, we could be in for a very bumpy ride.  I suppose this is a backup plan if the various methods now being employed to reduce the population cannot deliver fast enough.  Drugs, chemicals, bioweapons, psyops, and any number of bazaar killing techniques we’ve never heard of; are are never enough.
