This was written back on February 3, 1984, but you’ll swear it was written yesterday. Writing such as this is called beautiful by writers such as myself, because it’s brilliantly simplistic, and beautiful, brilliant, simplistic writing is timeless.
It was written during President Ronald Reagan’s tenure as president, but it is non-partisan in its condemnation. It was written after a tumultuous year (1983) of spending that led to a mountainous 1.4 trillion dollar debt. That was a leap in the debt of nearly 6.6% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from President Carter’s last days. The final amount of the debt as a percentage of the GDP that enraged Charley Reese enough to write this prescient column in 1983 was 39.9%.
A very interesting column. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL.
Be sure to Read the Poem at the end..
Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them…
On January 6, 2021 irreconcilable became a noun as well as an adjective. I am one of tens of millions of Americans who can never be reconciled with this criminal enterprise in Washington DC which masquerades as a government.
This has been a long time in the making. On 9-10-2001 Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld admitted that neither he nor Comptroller of the Pentagon Rabbi Dov Zakheim could trace $2.3 trillion in defense spending from the previous Clinton administration. It was estimated that 25% of defense dollars just went somewhere but we didn’t know where.
At one point Rumsfeld promised that they would do a better job in the future managing the people’s money. Don’t believe that. Flash forward to today. Dr Mark Skidmore has revealed from government websites that $21 trillion went missing from HUD and DOD from 1998 to 2015. He also said he believes that the Powers That Ought Not To Be have sold trillions of dollars in US Treasury bonds and pocketed the money.
That is how much power they have.
Catherine Austin Fitts said they stole $50 trillion from us. She also said that in 1995 she was told by a pension fund manager that it was decided at the top that we should no longer invest in America and that it was time to just take what we could before the country collapsed. She discussed America’s bleak future with another person who managed funds above the $300 billion level. They both concluded that the Elite had stolen so much money from us that they could not pay us the pensions they owed. These people are unwilling to make restitution so the only alternative that appeals to them is to commit genocide and kill a few billion people worldwide including a couple hundred million Americans.
How do they plan to kill us?
They did introduce the first of many bioweapons in the form of covid 19.
The coronavirus was made in a lab at the University of North Carolina.
Luc Montagnier won the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine. He says Covid-19 is a Bioweapon and was made in a lab. Francis Boyle drafted America’s laws on Bioweapons. He agrees. It is a Bioweapon.
The Spike protein was engineered from SARS into Covid. This allows it to enter human cells. 4 new sequences were engineered into Covid from the HIV virus including the GP 41 envelope which is the key for HIV to infect human bodies.
In 2014 NIH, Dr Fauci and President Obama gave that Chinese military lab in Wuhan a $3.7 million grant to make the virus even more contagious…

Given the historical behavior of the permanent bureaucracy and the stated desires of the current regime, it’s a no-brainer that government-staged gun massacres will be carried out as was the case during the obama and clinton years. (Bush concentrated more on fake “foreign threats”) The currently targeted political groups are constitutionalists, 2nd amendment supporters, skeptics of the fake election and (for good measure) russia. Naturally the targets will shift as further developments warrant. Perhaps depressed kindergartners who haven’t embraced the new fake normal will be the next threat to our “democracy”. Or maybe Biden will have an early retirement.
So let me stress that this is not random speculation. The probability of a major assassination or resumption of staged massacres of school children is practically 100%. It has all but happened. The question is, will the public fall for it again?
“It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of education have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.” –Albert Einstein
Standard education in America typically focuses on creating a supply of worker bees who follow orders from authority and operate within the confines that the system has set out, but lack critical thinking skills. Even before the insanity around COVID-19 lockdowns began, the results of such a system which suppresses and discourages creativity and imagination were already having a detrimental effect on children. Now, however, thanks to a set of often cruel and entirely arbitrary regulations, children across the planet are being severely harmed by government mandates, school regulations, and lockdowns.
Last month a study by researchers at the University of Cambridge found that the government-imposed lockdowns in response to the coronavirus pandemic cause significant harm to children’s mental health. The study, published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood, was the first of its kind to analyze data on younger children’s mental health before and during the first lockdown in the United Kingdom last spring.
Following 168 children between the ages of 7 ½ and 11 ½, the researchers conclude:
During the UK lockdown, children’s depression symptoms have increased substantially, relative to before lockdown. The scale of this effect has direct relevance for the continuation of different elements of lockdown policy, such as complete or partial school closures.
Specifically, we observed a statistically significant increase in ratings of depression, with a medium-to-large effect size. Our findings emphasise the need to incorporate the potential impact of lock-down on child mental health in planning the ongoing response to the global pandemic and the recovery from it.
There are multiple other studies showing the same thing, including those from the CDC. Unfortunately, however, government seems entirely unconcerned with remedying the problem. And, as the following case out of Alaska illustrates, when children actually do go back to school, government will impose outright torturous and inhumane restrictions.
After being locked down for over ten months, children in Anchorage recently returned to school. However, other than returning to the same buildings, nothing else was the same.
As stated above, many of these regulations are often arbitrary like Anchorage’s decision to remove desks from classrooms. When returning to school this week, children walked into classrooms with no desks. Instead there is a kneeling mat and a chair that they cannot sit in. The chair functions as their new desk.
In this dystopian classroom the children will be forced to kneel for over five hours a day, while wearing a mask. They will have no recess, no art classes, and no physical education.
Apparently, art, recess, PE — and apparently desks — all spread coronavirus.
The independent news site, Must Read Alaska did an exposé on the new regulations and they are nothing short of horrifying. They asked parents, who were shocked by the new conditions, to send in photos. The pictures are utterly depressing.
According to the report:
Parents who viewed the classroom their students will be returning to expressed shock: All desks have been removed. Students will kneel on gardening pads and use chairs as their desks for 5.5 hours.
Rather than lockers, they will have to bring a five-gallon utility bucket to store their lunch, jackets, and supplies in. The parents were told all students will be masked over their nose and mouth.
Naturally, the bureaucrats behind the policies — who won’t be forced to kneel on the floor for five hours a day — claim it is for the good of the children.
“It may be hard to remember what ‘school in school’ was like. That’s okay! We will transition to a new routine together. We are paving the way for a new approach to learning in-person. The District is prepared with Individual School Safety and Mitigation Plans that are in line with CDC guidelines and customized by school principals and staff to ensure the mitigation works for each unique schools’ building and culture,” the district said.
But there is nothing “okay” about it. In fact, it’s terrifying that children will be treated like this, and parents agree.
“We wouldn’t allow terrorists to be treated like this,” said one concerned parent, who asked to be kept anonymous, according to MRA.
Now, as kids who’ve been suffering during home learning for the last ten months return to these prison-esque classrooms, they will be subjected to torturous conditions in the name of keeping them safe from a virus they have a near-zero chance of dying from.
As stated above, public education in the land of the free was already damaging children. Now, thanks to the callous bureaucracies completely devoid of logic and obsessed by fear, that damage will be magnified ten-fold.

The ADL’S illegal penetration of US and San Francisco police agencies was exposed in 1993 – ADL’s main fact-finder was also spy for South African regime; buddy was San Francisco cop who tutored El Salvadoran death squads
San Francisco Examiner, April 1, 2002
By Dan Evans of The Examiner Staff
Anti-Defamation League spying
Paper trail of deceit
On the hidden workings of the Anti-Defamation League and how three Bay Area activists were able to uncover a spy operation that reached into the San Francisco Police Department.
LOCKED in a nondescript computer database, a shadowy operative named Roy Bullock kept file upon file on liberal San Francisco Jews who disagreed with Israeli policies.
The files included Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, addresses, phone numbers and group memberships. Some of the information was sold to foreign governments, including Israeli and South African intelligence groups.
Shockingly, Bullock was in the employ of a civil rights group whose motto is “fighting anti-Semitism, bigotry and extremism”: the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. Numerous targets of the ADL — who drew parallels to COINTELPRO, the FBI’s tainted domestic surveillance program — say the profiling and covert activities continue to this day.
“They are continuing to gather facts,” said Abdeen Jabara, a Manhattan attorney and former president of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. “That, of course, is a euphemism for what we say is private spying.”
Not only were liberal Jews a target, but information also was kept on labor unions, pro-Palestinian organizations, anti-apartheid groups, American Arabs and anti-Semites. After the Federal Bureau of Investigation broke the case in 1993, a number of these targets filed suit against the ADL. The last lawsuit was recently settled.
The settlement in February marked the first time any of the organization’s victims were allowed to speak out. Usually, the ADL demands plaintiffs keep quiet as a condition of any settlement.
Without those constraints, victims Jeffrey Blankfort, Steve Zeltzer and Anne Poirier are revealing the underbelly of an organization that previously had successfully shielded itself from condemnation. They are using the ADL’s own spy as a fulcrum.
Bullock’s relationship with Blankfort and Zeltzer began when he infiltrated a pro-Palestinian group started by the two, both of whom are Jewish. Once inside, Bullock collected and sold information about the two men to the ADL and, possibly the Mossad, the foreign arm of Israeli intelligence.
Although Bullock never met Poirier, he may have sold information on her organization to the South African government. The woman, who lives in Berkeley, ran a scholarship program for South African exiles in the early 1990s. During the course of her lawsuit against the ADL, she discovered the ADL’s operative had sold confidential information to a South African agent in San Francisco for $15,000.
Poirier had never done any work relating to the Middle East, and she was astounded when she found out that the ADL had kept tabs on her. During her nine-year court fight with the group, she found out more than she needed to know about its operation, and now nothing much surprises her.
“They gathered information on anti-apartheid activities,” she said, “anyone the organization felt, by definition, would be against Israel because they were too left-wing.”
A FEW FILES, SO WHAT?
The fact the ADL has a file on a group doesn’t imply clandestine activities, said San Francisco regional director Jonathan Bernstein. He resents the implication of the word spying, saying it implies people were being followed around and trailed. That simply wasn’t the case, he said, though he acknowledged he never met Bullock.
“We have files on the NAACP because we’ve done collaborative projects with them,” he said. “They probably have files on the ADL, too.”
In Bernstein’s eyes, the group’s fact-finding operations are one of its most important missions.
Much of the time, the “missions” are nothing more than gleaning information from media reports, he said. People employed by the ADL do attend public meetings to keep an eye on people, just as other journalists do.
The area’s top boss, however, repeatedly sidestepped questions on whether fact-finders employed subterfuge to get information. The fact that some of the people being watched by the ADL were Jewish was immaterial, Bernstein said.
Other civil rights groups, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, do similar things on a limited scale, he said.
- More than 100 doctors, scientists and leading authorities have signed an open letter calling for increased use of vitamin D in the fight against COVID-19
- The letter recommends taking enough vitamin D to achieve a blood level of at least 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L). They also urge testing of all hospitalized COVID-19 patients and adding vitamin D to the treatment protocol for any patient whose level is below 30 ng/mL
- The Irish Covit-D Consortium is also calling for greater use of vitamin D against COVID-19, citing evidence showing it can lower the risk of death from COVID-19 in the elderly by as much as 700%
- Research shows giving critically ill COVID-19 patients high doses of vitamin D significantly reduced the number of days they had to spend in the ICU. They were also less likely to need ventilation
- Another recent study found high-dose vitamin D supplementation sped up viral clearance; 62.5% of participants in the intervention group became SARS-CoV-2 RNA negative within 21 days, compared to just 20.8% of controls who did not receive vitamin D
In recent weeks and months, there’s been an upshot of studies1 demonstrating the benefits of vitamin D against COVID-19. The evidence is so compelling, more than 100 doctors, scientists and leading authorities have signed an open letter2 calling for increased use of vitamin D in the fight against COVID-19.
“Research shows low vitamin D levels almost certainly promote COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths. Given its safety, we call for immediate widespread increased vitamin D intakes,” the letter states, adding:3 “Vitamin D modulates thousands of genes and many aspects of immune function, both innate and adaptive. The scientific evidence shows that:
•Higher vitamin D blood levels are associated with lower rates of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Higher D levels are associated with lower risk of a severe case (hospitalization, ICU, or death).
•Intervention studies (including RCTs) indicate that vitamin D can be a very effective treatment. Many papers reveal several biological mechanisms by which vitamin D influences COVID-19.
•Causal inference modelling, Hill’s criteria, the intervention studies & the biological mechanisms indicate that vitamin D’s influence on COVID-19 is very likely causal, not just correlation.”
The letter recommends taking enough vitamin D to achieve a blood level of at least 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L). They also urge testing of all hospitalized COVID-19 patients and adding vitamin D to the treatment protocol for any patient whose level is below 30 ng/mL. Many other doctors are also urging government health agencies to get onboard with vitamin D recommendations. As reported by NL Times:4
“‘There is a growing consensus in the scientific world about the important role of vitamin D,’ says Manfred Eggersdorfer, professor of Healthy Aging at the University Medical Center Groningen. He argues that ‘it can reduce the chance that you will get corona and the infection can last shorter.’
The wait-and-see attitude adopted by governments does not sit well in the scientific community. Professor of immunology at Wageningen University, Huub Savelkoul, called the attitude ‘frustrating.’
He states that ‘there are more and more studies showing the benefit of vitamin D. I think it is a kind of arrogance that the government wants to wait for a meta-study first. It seems as if we don’t care that people come to the hospital and die in the meantime. You have to be careful with that comment, but that’s where my frustration lies.'”
Vitamin D Optimization Is Powerful Prevention
In a December 23, 2020, Fox News interview5,6 (above), Dr. Peter Osborne with the Origins Nutrition Center stated that the most recent studies suggest 9 out of 10 COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented had people had adequate vitamin D levels.
While I suspect this might be an overestimation, there’s no doubt in my mind that optimizing vitamin D levels among the general population would significantly lower COVID-19 incidence and death.
“At the East Virginia School of Medicine there’s a COVID protocol that includes Vitamin D,” Osborne said. “So, if you’re hospitalized for COVID, they’re automatically putting you on between 20,000 and 60,000 units of vitamin D. This is part of their standard of care protocol in that hospital system.”…
