    TR 604 - In Fierce Defense of Free Speech

    TR 604 - In Fierce Defense of Free Speech

    In the beginning…
    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”John 1:1

    To me, this is one of the most mysterious and powerful passages of the Bible, whether you read the Bible literally, figuratively, or not at all. Those who have been with me on this learning journey may recall I’ve referenced the passage before.
    In TR 280 - The Perversion of Science (connecting the dots between science, language, and tyranny), we extracted one of the most profound and prescient truths, namely that our personal and societal beliefs are based on language:
    In the Greek, the Word is logos—which is used 69 times throughout the New Testament—and translates variably to “the news,” “the report,” “the saying,” “the statement,” “the utterance,” “the message,” “the story,” and of course, the Word.
    Logos is a beautiful word, with deep and rich meaning.
    Connecting the dots here, we can logically say that our belief systems are based on the news, the reports, the sayings, the statements, the utterances, the messages, the stories, and the words that we receive. Again, our beliefs are based on language.
    As we begin to wade into the murky water of this “free for all hellscape” formerly known as “free speech,” I’d like to note that this concept of logos, at least in my mind, is really the bedrock of the First Amendment, which reads in full:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Few people contemplate the degree of contemplation behind these carefully chosen words, or why these words were chosen, and why they were ordered the way they were. I’m not going to dwell on it today, but suffice it to say it merits some thought. In studying these words, one can gain great insight into original American thinking.
    For today, however, I’d like to call on the carpet the communists and their imbecile allies who are currently, very actively, and quite intentionally, undermining our constitutionally protected right to free speech.
    These fools need a flogging.
    Just to quickly put a face to the name, you might recall Ms. Katie Porter, the crazy cat lady who represents crazy Californians in the United States Congress. Nearest I can tell, she’s the idiot who coined the laughably offensive phrase “free-for-all hellscape”—as first reported back in TR 316 - It’s a Free-for-All Hellscape:
    Of course, the portly Ms. Porter is certainly not alone. Her progressive pals in the liberal echo chambers have been quick to pick up the trope, and there is no shortage of moronic, mediocre thinkers in the mainstream media who have her back, but perhaps the most prominent of fellow proponents of this ideological insanity is this wench:
    They say to never judge a book by its cover, but you should be aware that even artificial intelligence can pick up on political orientation via facial recognition. Looking at those two faces, there is some strange similarity, isn’t there?
    It’s hard to put my finger on it, it could be the raw ugliness, or perhaps the repulsive reflex I feel toward feminist commies who are trying to tear down everything I love and hold dear—but, regardless, do you know who that woman is?
    Maybe this will help:
    That’s right, that wretched countenance is radiating from the face of none other than Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan—the diversity hire who was appointed to the Bench by her University of Chicago pal, Barack Hussein Obama.
    For the record, Obama appointed Kagan to be a judge on the Supreme Court, even though she had never been a judge before. You may wonder what, pray tell, were her qualifications? Unsurprisingly, her wiki resume reads like a textbook for radical indoctrination, and quite ironically, it reveals her radical soci

    TR 603 - On the Irony of Satire and the Utter Insanity of it All

    TR 603 - On the Irony of Satire and the Utter Insanity of it All

    It was a joke.
    The title of yesterday’s report was: “How ‘Intel Officials’ are Teaming Up With the Kremlin to Steal the Election”. It was meant to be an eye-catching, entertaining spoof, something akin to what the infamous Babylon Bee has made such an art of, cranking out a veritable arsenal of satire with headlines like these:
    * White House Denies Taxidermist Visited To Stuff And Preserve President
    * Janet Yellen Reassures Nation That Biden’s Dementia Is Transitory
    * People Who Would Never Cheat In Elections Horrified By ‘Stop Cheating In Elections’ Bill
    * Dems Outraged Over Vice President Chosen For Her Race And Gender Being Labeled ‘DEI Hire’
    The point is, even though the headlines are intentionally over the top, there is truth in jest. The same goes for the Kremlin teaming up with U.S. intel officials to steal the election. It’s not that there is an actual alliance (that I am aware of), it’s the great irony that as the Deep State screeches about Russia! Russia! Russia! interfering with our elections, it is actually they who pose the far greater threat.
    This is not speculation, this is fact. It has been documented at length, and we have clearly been warned. Do you recall the ominous admonition from former Deputy National Security Adviser K. T. McFarland, claiming that the FBI, Justice Department, and CIA are planning to rig the upcoming election?
    If this is new news to you, get up to speed here:
    * TR 371 - FBI, CIA & DOJ Will Rig 2024 Election
    * TR 453 - Social Justice has a New Global Daddy
    * TR 528 - Globalists Predict that Americans Will Kill Each Other over the 2024 Election
    * TR 534 - God's Army, Religious Divisions, and Playing Into the Enemy's Hand
    * TR 561 - Super Tuesday & the Fate of Our Nation
    It is critical to keep in mind the enemy is playing a long game, and their ultimate goal is total control. Never lose sight of that fact. That’s what I was getting at with the three-ring circus analogy—that while everyone is watching the circus, the cabal keeps marching on.
    All eyes are on the 2024 election, and rightly so to some extent, but it would be woefully shortsighted to think the game stops there, that if Trump gets elected somehow we’ve won. It would be one victorious battle in a much longer war, but the global elites are sure as hell not going to abandon their plans, give up and go home.
    * TR 370 - The Goal of Total Control
    * TR 573 - The Globalists' Vision for 2050 is Playing Out Right Before Our Eyes
    It’s worth noting, just in case it’s not obvious, that when I refer to the global elites I’m talking about America’s own Deep State, the entrenched political class, international NGOs like the United Nations and the WHO, global banking cartels, Big Tech, Big Pharma, the MIC, the WEF, and Rockefeller’s “secret cabal,” just to name a few.
    These people have no allegiance to any country, least of all to a country of free individuals protected by a Constitution that explicitly restricts their authority to rule over our lives. The global elites’ only allegiance is to money, power, and control.
    Currently, collectively, these shysters are shoving their socialist agenda down our throats under the guise of the greater good, to save Mother Earth from a “triple planetary crisis”—i.e. overpopulation—all for the sake of public health and safety.
    This is how they plan on justifying their global takeover.
    You see, your personal health is rooted in public health. Public health is rooted in planetary health. Planetary health is rooted in absolute authority and total control.
    Thus, they absolutely must have total control in order to keep you safe and healthy.
    That’s their game plan, and they are currently on offense, attacking our way of life from every conceivable angle. Many of the attacks come in the form of regulatory restrictions, banning gas stoves and mandating electric vehicles, for example.
    But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
    They push these ludicrous polici

    TR 602 - How ‘Intel Officials’ are Teaming Up With the Kremlin to Steal the Election

    TR 602 - How ‘Intel Officials’ are Teaming Up With the Kremlin to Steal the Election

    **note, my editor is unavailable at the moment, so you’re getting this one raw!
    It’s a three ring circus.
    In the center ring, Biden is still mumbling and bumbling as he shuffles in circles, squatting to s**t his pants, and pretending to be the leader of the free world. Today, the latest charade involves characters from NATO celebrating their 75th anniversary, with the sock-puppet screeching and slurring something about NATO support for Ukraine, even though Ukraine is not a NATO member.
    While the global MIC and NATO are playing along and pretending that Biden is president, in ring number two, stage right, out on the left edge of entertainment, the liberal mainstream media is still tripping over their tongues trying to find a way to sell the idea that they are still legitimate journalists, as opposed to lying, blathering, idiots and paid propagandists complicit in this tyrannical takeover.
    In ring two, George Stephanopolous, the smug, arrogant, self-righteous jackass from clan ABC, is ripping his sackcloth and wailing about how Old Joe just can’t make it four more years. Simultaneously, Nancy Pelosi is playing coy, resisting calls to make a statement for or against Biden’s presidential aspirations, instead insisting that “it’s up to the president” if he’s going to stay in the race.
    Biden, lest we forget, is still adamantly clinging to his delusions of grandeur, feebly believing the lies that he’s as good as he’s ever been. He’s telling people to stop speculating and fall in line, remember? Biden clearly has no intentions of stepping down, but let me ask you: do you really think that it’s up to Joe?
    To compliment this world-class circus, as the MIC and NATO play with their sock-puppet in the center ring, and as the Legacy Media and Party Bosses dance around Biden’s half-animated carcass in the left ring, in ring number three—off to the right, but not the “far right”—the stage is set for a very captivating sideshow:
    MSM Launches 'Muh Russia' Election Narrative As Brands Collude To Silence Dissent
    Certain unnamed “senior US intelligence officials” have cracked open a can of worms, exposing another dark twist in the plot. These anonymous officials have declared that the Russian government is launching a “whole-of-government” effort to trick Americans into voting for Trump and steal the election from Biden.
    What a shock to our perfectly flawless election system! What an unthinkable assault on Democracy! Just as Joe Biden reaches the very peak of presidential prowess and political performance, the Evil Russian Tyrant strikes again!
    Russia! Russia! Russia!
    RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!!!
    I expect that soon enough, a certain (lesser endowed) segment of the crowd is going to start joining in the chant. Consider the report from the Wall Street Journal:
    “The officials didn’t mention Trump by name, but said that Russia’s current activity—described as covert social-media use and other online propaganda efforts—mirrored the 2020 and 2016 election cycles, when Moscow also favored Trump and sought to undermine Democratic candidates, according to U.S. intelligence agencies.”
    Never mind that it’s all hogwash.
    Never mind that the 2020 election was rigged, that there has been ample evidence delivered repeatedly via forensic analysis, video footage, et cetera, or the fact that this evidence has been squashed and censored by Big Tech and their Deep State allies—think Hamilton 68, the Twitter Files, and the Google Leaks—you are being told to believe that it is Russia who is using “information warfare” to undermine our elections.
    The hypocrisy is intentional, of course, because that’s how gaslighting works. You are being trained not to believe your own eyes and ears, not to trust your own thoughts or intuition. You are being conditioned to accept what you are told, because there is no other truth under the sun.
    Everything except the narrative is now either misinformation, or worse, it

    TR 601 - Democrats Reject Reality and fall in line as Biden Refuses to Drop Out

    TR 601 - Democrats Reject Reality and fall in line as Biden Refuses to Drop Out

    It’s an exciting time to be alive.
    On any given day, via the deluge of headline news and state funded propaganda, the American public is treated to an entire smorgasbord of gripping, thrilling, entertaining, and utterly disturbing stories. Examples abound:
    * Russia attacks Ukraine’s largest children’s hospital
    * Hamas Accuses Israel's Netanyahu of Trying to Hinder Ceasefire Talks
    * China's leader Xi Jinping to help Russia and Ukraine resume direct dialogue
    * France in turmoil as it prepares to 'host the world' for Olympics
    * There is an intense battle to stop AI bots from taking over the internet
    * Boeing agrees to plead guilty to defrauding US regulators
    * Dems Destruct, War Cycle Heats Up, Bird Flu Coming
    * Why UFOs appear to target high-speed planes and warheads
    * STDs up nearly 25% among seniors
    I could go on, but the point is: there is something for everyone.
    Of course, over the last ten days or so since the Trump v. Biden “debate” that rocked the presidential race, the scale of political insanity has reached fever pitch. Never have the American people been so riveted by an entirely predictable train wreck.
    It’s worth focusing on for a moment.
    Many people have been watching in disbelief for the last three and a half years, as our country has been systematically torn apart. We’ve known that Joe Biden is not the most popular president ever elected. We know gaslighting when we see it.
    That’s why well-informed and politically astute observers might be inclined to scoff at the left’s collective implosion, chuckling to ourselves as we witness the wrecking ball of reality obliterating the liberals’ delicate illusions. It feels like some sort of redemptive entertainment—just don’t get distracted by the theater or tricked into thinking for a second that this was not intentionally orchestrated.
    Though the rank and file of the Democrat Party may have been thrown into a panic by the “unexpected” revelation of Biden’s decline, for those who’ve been propping the puppet up it was a calculated maneuver. In other words, the democratic panic and plunging the party into chaos was done on purpose, and the timing was intentional.
    For the last week, a lot of people have been strutting around asking, “Who the hell is running the country?” — as if this is some sort of deep and pressing question. As you well know, the wise have been wrestling with this enigma for years.
    For those dumb enough to believe that Biden has been running the country for the last three years: here’s your sign.
    The real question in my mind, is why now?
    Time will tell.
    The answer may not be as obvious as one might think.
    Regardless, what floors me the most is the number of people who failed to see this coming. It astounds me there are people in the world who sincerely believed that Biden was going to beat Trump in the debate. It’s hard to grasp, but there are people who have been told that it is Trump, not Biden, who is in mental decline.
    Imagine the perspectives of people who have been getting fed headlines like these:
    * Dementia expert shows 4 ways Trump is 'Falling off the cliff' of cognitive decline
    * Donald Trump's Mind 'Faltering,' Top Psychologist Warns
    * CNN Opinion: Trump's mental gaffes can't be ignored
    Isn’t it fascinating that the media would be running stories like these, all the while willfully fleecing the public with lie after lie, propping the sock puppet up with world-class propaganda about him being “sharp as a tack”?
    Then there’s the other twist in the narrative, the outlets that have been seeding the lie that somehow both presidential contenders are cognitively impaired:
    * Can a cognitive test tell us if Biden, Trump are mentally fit?
    * What science tells us evaluating Biden, Trump’s aging brain
    Of course, that’s just a lousy attempt at avoiding the painful reality of Biden’s severely diminished state, which brings me to Biden’s full week of preparation at Camp David. I’m sure you hea

    Protests Erupt Around the Globe as Anti-Government Sentiment Hits All-Time Highs

    Protests Erupt Around the Globe as Anti-Government Sentiment Hits All-Time Highs

    (Originally posted June 30, 2023 as TR 398 - On Haiti, Hatred, & Holding Out Hope)
    Brace yourself.
    I’ve read many things this morning, ranging from the uprisings setting France on fire to dopamine addiction, from shrinking Social Security to Supreme Court diversity hires, how humanity is supposedly shifting the tilt of the earth, how conservatives are using the court system to remake America, how liberals plan to salvage Kamala Harris, how officials are using illegal emails to avoid accountability, and how racist red-blooded Americans need to let black folk rewrite the national anthem.
    And then there was an article warning that the UN is set to launch a new “global framework” that demands “international cooperation in ammunition management.”
    Setting the ridiculous distractions aside, I had to look into that one.
    Taking into account that this framework is being rolled out by the UN Office of Disarmament, it should be clear that they’re up to no good—but to give you a better glimpse of their depravity, here are a few screenshots of the propaganda:
    You see, the UN is “gender-mainstreaming” gun control and brainwashing these impressionable youths, who will then spend the rest of their lives trying to “manage your ammo” and take control of your small arms (as in confiscate them). This is all part of the blissful world peace that is promised in Agenda 2030.
    According to the Office of Disarmament’s 29-page strategic plan, having a bunch of uppity peasants clinging to their guns and bibles—ahem, clinging to their small arms—will “hamper the achievement of several Goals, most notably SDG 16, but also SDG 1, SDG 3, SDG 5, SDG 8, and SDG 11.”
    I could go on about the obvious here, but I won’t.
    Instead, I want to point out these collectivist punks have a very methodical plan to impose their will upon the rest of us. It would be foolish to underestimate their ambition, their funding, and just how close they are to pulling off this global socialist coup. Taking your guns away in the name of peace and public safety is just part of it.
    As an interesting aside, I find the fact that their strategic plan for disarmament ends in 2025 absolutely fascinating. My mind skips from the 2024 hung election and civil war, to international interventions and the global responsibility to protect people from extremists—to the fact that virtually every other globalist goal it targeted for 2030.
    Is this just coincidence?
    Regardless, just this week the United Nations published a report on preventing a “contagion of mass atrocities” by building “the conditions for sustainable peace.” Just to be clear, one of the main conditions for “sustainable peace” is disarming the peasants. The report claims the cornerstone of this strategy is early detection, early warning, and prevention based on “improved systems for data collection and analysis”—aka greater state surveillance.
    What risk factors do they intend to surveil? Social inequality, food insecurity, and discrimination, just to name a few. You know, just the standard social justice issues.
    Why does that matter?
    Because they are using government surveillance to collect / create data that they then use to “leverage policy”—their words, not mine—in order to justify government intervention and impose pre-determined socialist solutions. In other words, this is how the global cabal is advancing Cultural Revolution all around the globe.
    Again, just take a look at France today—or any of the other 400+ “significant anti-government protests” taking place around the world—and you can see exactly where we’re headed:
    Let me ask you: do you think this is all just coincidence?
    I don’t.
    Let’s zoom out.
    WHY? Why is the “secret global cabal” orchestrating all of this chaos?
    The simple answer is because out of chaos comes calls for more control. Obviously there are some major problems, global problems even, and major global problems require major global

    The People’s Republic of China Steps Up to Lead the Democrat Party

    The People’s Republic of China Steps Up to Lead the Democrat Party

    (Originally posted June 29, 2023 as TR 397 - The Climate Clock & China's Global Initiatives)
    Things are crazy.
    I started the week pointing out the merciless assault on commonsense, specifically calling BS on the whole Russian mutiny melodrama, which much of the mainstream continues to stream along, despite even more evidence coming in that western intelligence was behind the whole operation. The entire story stinks to high heaven.
    Similarly, I briefly laid out all the unlawful shenanigans swirling around the Deep State interference in our elections, the Biden family crime syndicate, the toothless Durham Report, and other such distractions—all of which are important issues that implicate treachery and treason at the highest levels of government—before turning attention to the bigger issues of digital enslavement and global tyranny.
    Side stepping the nonsense, Tuesday’s report placed the global cabal’s devious plans to use “more stick, less carrot” front and center, diving into their Summer Davos ambitions to save the planet before driving home the point that math really does matter. These schmucks are trying to take over the world, allegedly to prevent a catastrophic climate crisis that’s supposedly being driven by over population, despite the fact that the whole of humanity—all 8 billion of us—could easily fit within the great state of Texas, with plenty of room left over for crops. That’s a cold hard fact.
    Nevertheless, right on cue, today The Climate Cult is cranking up the doomsday dial by trotting out the King of England to activate a Climate Clock that looks like a giant ticking time bomb. Apparently, we only have 6 years and 24 days to save the planet:
    Are you scared yet?
    I assure you that’s the point—to freak people out—most especially the helplessly indoctrinated minions who are no longer capable of thinking for themselves or questioning The Science. Unfortunately, these minions get to vote, which is really what the climate agenda is all about: it’s about political control at the global level.
    That and money.
    It’s always about the money.
    Like controlling the flow of global investments via ESG extortion, or using taxpayer dollars to build the inescapable surveillance infrastructure all around the world, for example. Or perhaps like giving exorbitant taxpayer-funded subsidies to the government’s green cronies, who can then take the money and run, file for bankruptcy, and leave mountains of “sustainable” junk scattered all across the land—like those un-recyclable windmill blades getting buried somewhere in Texas.
    But never mind all of that.
    Yesterday I started putting the big picture puzzle pieces together connecting the dots between Deep State surveillance, Biden-backed state censorship, and the Democratic Surveillance Accelerator that virtually nobody has ever heard of—all of which is driving the fundamental transformation of human consciousness and intentionally “Transforming Our World,” per the explicitly stated goals of Agenda 2030.
    I realize that for someone who may be fairly new to the audience or reading the Torch Report for the first time, all this talk of transforming human consciousness may seem a bit fringe or extreme, but I assure you this is an accurate and scientifically backed statement. Not only that, this is also an explicitly stated intent of the global elite.
    Their stated goal is to control “emerging” public perceptions in order to drive behavioral change, all of which quite literally, scientifically rewires the brain.
    Just to recap, quoting from Rape of the Mind, as reported in TR 305:
    “Speech manifestations represent conditioned reflex functions of the human brain. In a simpler way we may say: he who dictates and formulates the words and phrases we use, he who is master of the press and radio, is master of the mind. …
    Political conditioning should not be confused with training or persuasion or even indoctrination. It is more than that. It is tamp
