New Year's 2018


With all the violence displayed by the "progressives" this year, maybe it's a good thing to put the year behind us and be grateful no one really got hurt. Uh, what am I talking about, you ask? Well, I'm referring to all the bogus shootings and arranged incidents as well as the proxy wars going on around the world in the name of globalism. Conspiracies are real, folks, and laughing at me won't change anything.

It's no wonder the world hates America so much. We're always trying to police everybody up with the excuse we're going to help them out. Like, you guys need a dam here so you can have fresh water but first, we're going to have to kill a couple of hundred of you to get your attention. After the dam is built, we'll charge you for electricity. That's how we'll pay for it. Live in a mud hut and have no money? Too bad.

That's the state of things these days and it's pretty much all to blame on our own greed and negligence over things that really matter. Oh, but that's a problem because so many of the masses believe in nothing. That's right, nothing. We've got legions of zombie nihilists chained to their televisions and iPhones. They are "plugged in" or so they believe. The thing is, the net is not designed to further truth. Just the opposite, in fact.

If you watch television, especially if you watch television under the auspices of a daily habit, you are brainwashed and lost. You believe in a whole world of things that simply are not true, plus you get angry when someone tells you something different other than what the television tells you. Your world is tied up in a great big bow and it is presented to you every day in the daily news. They tell you what to think, how to feel, what to eat, what to wear, where to go, and how to get there. It's a wonder you know how to tie your own shoes.

I'll not list all the crimes committed in 2017 by shadowy characters hired by the Democrat Party in this little article. Neither will I denigrate a President who, despite the fervent outcry by his critics, has done more to re-establish American sovereignty than any president since Harry Truman (What did Truman do, Gloria? Why, he dropped the Bomb on the Japs and ended WW II.). Trump has been a surprise for many of us. Hillary would not have been a surprise.

I have a question for you men out there. It's a new year and all, so when are you going to stand up, face the truth, and act like a man? Speak truth to power and not the phony globalist jibe on fake equality and sexual freedom.

For you women, all I can say is that you have dropped the ball, sister. It's just like they said, as soon as Americans discover they can vote themselves a raise, the country will run out of money. You see, women are greedy too. They want it all and they don't care if you get yours. Men and women still operate in the same universe and so we find the epidemic of greed and selfishness distributed evenly throughout society.

If our purpose in life is not to make a pile of money or to convince everyone of our superior knowledge, then what are we doing here on the Earth, in this life, in 2018? Good question. I think it is THE QUESTION. THE ANSWER is we are here to glorify and praise God by first learning what that means and how to do it, then by leading exemplary lives. You can't lead an exemplary life if you don't know what exemplary means...

All right, enough of this year-end nonsense. Happy New Year, everybody. Now go have a glass of eggnog and begin working on your critical thinking skills.

We All Will Work From Home


Working from home instead of from my male/female segregated office job.
We have finally reached the point where men and women must be separated at work. Otherwise, there is simply too much of a chance some woman will become offended by something a man might say, or something he wears, or perhaps the way he smells or what he brings for lunch. Yep, we're going to have to segregate male workers from female because if we don't, American Industry is bound to grind to a halt from all the lawsuits. I would volunteer to work from home but I'm already here.

I just heard a guy on the radio say it wasn't safe for American men and women to work together anymore!

Christmas 2017


We made it to Christmas, 2017. In another week, it'll be a new year. Some of us will say we're going to change, lose weight, or stop swearing, but most will end up procrastinating and feeling guilty for not having enough self-discipline to change.

Some of us think we have a right to change the world because we think we know what's best for humanity, although I find people like that rarely have a clue as to what might be going on.

There is a war going on in America between political interests. On one side, you've got President Trump and his people. On the other side, you've got the communists (posing as democrats), neocons posing as republicans, globalist bankers and businessmen posing as humanitarians, and a handful of paid, anarchist shills who just like to get out in the street and cause trouble. The bad guys want to destroy America and re-build it into a techno-socialist state. They want to do away with the current Constitution because [they say] it protects the interests of white hegemony, with the emphasis on white.

After the revolution is over, you white folks got a lot of explaining to do. That's a lame attempt at a joke.

Anyway, this "war" that is happening is financed by secret slush funds and supported by the Obama administration (still on life support at an undisclosed DC location) along with the likes of the Clintons and their good-time buddy, George Soros. It's not that the Clintons are so humiliated over Hillary's presidential loss; rather, their crimes and the crimes of both the Obama and Bush administrations will eventually come to light exposing the extent of the corruption.

You gotta remember, these folks do not believe in God, nor any higher power, and so they have no conscience and are willing to do anything to regain the reins of political power. I mean, to them, it's a matter of staying out of prison or perhaps even staying alive. You expect the truth from people like that?

The truth? What's that? Our national and international media is controlled by the same band of misfits. How can we know what the truth is anymore? I'll tell you how. Stop watching television. Don't listen to all those talk show hosts. Read your news from multiple sources. Go for a walk instead of spreading out on the couch. Talk to your kids.Talk to your neighbors. Go to church. Stop acting like you know everything. You don't.

Brainwashing, Social Control, and Programming



Turn it off.

Makes No Sense To Me


The explanation I heard yesterday for the mass shooting in Las Vegas was that it was an FBI operation selling guns to ISIS and it went wrong when the muslim gun buyers figured out Stephen Paddock was an FBI agent!

Paddock was killed in his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay and because the islamic terrorists could not move all the weapons out of the room unnoticed, they decided to make a statement then and there by shooting at everybody attending the country music concert across the street. Paddock was a millionaire gambler who seemingly floated around the country gambling and partying with his Filipina girlfriend.

This explanation makes the FBI sound like they were running another sting that went out of control. It does not really explain all the other anomalies in the case of the alleged largest mass shooting in American history. By the way, I have looked at videos aplenty and for 58 dead and a 100 wounded there is an amazing lack of blood, guts, and body parts on the ground. No videos of shooting victims either although early on I saw a bogus video of a guy walking through the concert crowd after the shooting filming victims. From what I saw, I was able to surmise it was fake, a set-up. The victims were not victims at all; rather, they appeared to be people acting.

I don't believe the ISIS story. It does not explain the other shooters and incidents in the other hotels (the Bellagio in particular) or the video of the military group (SWAT team led by FBI) pointing guns at everybody in the Tropicana and carrying a stretcher as they passed through on their way to do what exactly? Well, it looked to me like they were going to rescue somebody or at the least carry out a body -- perhaps to one of the waiting helicopters on the roof.

I have my doubts whether or not Paddock is really dead. I have very real doubts about anything the authorities say on this one. Just yesterday, the head of the FBI investigation said it may be a year before the FBI releases any more information. Wow. I am amazed. The top law enforcement organization in the US refuses to answer up. That's kind of scary in itself.

We live in a divided country. Do you ever stop to consider just how divided?

Don't believe the media.

Those Who Conspire


So, you don't buy into the notion that conspiracies exist at the highest levels of society and government? Today's quote is for you -- here goes:

“But they can rule by fraud, and by fraud eventually acquire access to the tools they need to finish the job of killing off the Constitution.'

'What sort of tools?'

'More stringent security measures. Universal electronic surveillance. No-knock laws. Stop and frisk laws. Government inspection of first-class mail. Automatic fingerprinting, photographing, blood tests, and urinalysis of any person arrested before he is charged with a crime. A law making it unlawful to resist even unlawful arrest. Laws establishing detention camps for potential subversives. Gun control laws. Restrictions on travel. The assassinations, you see, establish the need for such laws in the public mind. Instead of realizing that there is a conspiracy, conducted by a handful of men, the people reason—or are manipulated into reasoning—that the entire population must have its freedom restricted in order to protect the leaders. The people agree that they themselves can't be trusted.”

― Robert Anton Wilson, The Eye in the Pyramid

Oh yes, high level conspiracies do exist. As a matter of fact, they are common and just because the television tells you something different, you still refuse to consider any other explanation. It doesn't mean you are a bad person; it just means the brainwashing has worked on you. The good news is that the damage does not have to be permanent. Maybe it's time to wake up.

Off The Tracks


Authorities in Olympia, Washington were running a mass-casualty drill at the same time the Amtrak train derailed. Incredible coincidence. Did you know similar drills were being held when 9/11 occurred? And when the Boston Bombing occurred? And Sandy Hook? And other recent mass shootings? Gee, I wonder what's going on?

'88 Olympic Taekwondo



Taekwondo was a demonstration sport at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. It was the first time that the sport was included in the Olympic program; it would become an official sport twelve years later at the 2000 Games. A total of 120 men and 62 women from 35 different nations competed in eight different weight classes. Each event featured a single-elimination tournament to determine the winner. Competition was held at the Changchung Gymnasium from September 17 to 20. Fighters from the host nation of South Korea won nine of the sixteen events. Team USA women won first place and the USA women's and men's team overall placed second to Korea.

Genetic Surveys


Have you seen the genetic survey you can buy for yourself? The kit costs around a $100 and you take a swab from your mouth and send it to a lab. National Geographic is one of the businesses that offers the service.

Well, I read an article that said the analyses from some surveys are being tricked up by the testing lab to falsely claim minority backgrounds among those of the Caucasian persuasion.

If this is true, I may yet turn out to be a Maori warrior. It's the only way I could ever become a Maori warrior.

So, if I get the results back and the survey says I am partially descended from African slaves, can I apply for a grant or something as a minority? Just a thought. I could use some free money.

On this day (December 8) in 1980, John Lennon was shot to death outside the entrance to The Dakota, an exclusive apartment building in NYC where he lived with wife Yoko and children. Lennon was 40 years old.

Good Entertainment Is Hard To Find


These are indeed crazy days. Political tension is palpable in the US. People actually hate one another over their political affiliations which basically divides along racial and philosophical lines. In other words, there is no foreseeable solution to the problem. What problem is that, you may ask? Well, it is the very real political and cultural warfare going on in the US and, by extension, the entire world. Yes, we are at war on several fronts, it's true, but the most alarming front is the leftist revolution that would have us all reject capitalism, Christianity, our heritage and our history.

They want to tear it all down and re-build with an economic model more like Lenin and Marx and Chairman Mao intended. They think a new global government will usher in a thousand years of prosperity and a Star Trek future where everybody gets along just peachy -- except for the Klingons orbiting Uranus.

You know, I've been thinking. I could easily live in a two room apartment in a government high-rise. I wouldn't even mind turning in my guns and giving up my gas-guzzling vehicles. I promise to stop telling my lying redneck neighbors to fuck off. I'll pay my taxes and ride the bus to the market. I'll give up going to church and sign up with the dominant political party. I'll look down when I encounter anyone on the street, especially law enforcement. I'll admit I am a sexual harasser, a lurking hulk just waiting to ask if your mom had big tits too. I'll take the medicine they give and I'll watch mainstream media. I'll throw a Super Bowl watching party this year! I'll hand out plastic zombie masks as party favors. Will any of that make me a good commie?

All righty then. Let's move on to the lazy man's talking points:

♠ Did you hear Al Franken is going to resign? Who cares?


♠ We will lose control over artificial intelligence and it will likely be soon. What will happen then? Your guess is as good as mine.


♠ I am not making up this stuff. There is a nasty rumor circulating that pedophilia is alive and well among diplomats and globalists and people of power. Turns out it is the ultimate method of gaining control over someone. That is, a blackmail type of control. You think that's what the initiates at the Bohemian Grove are doing? Buggering adolescent love slaves? And how does that measure up against a handful of debatable sexual harassment charges? I can hear it now -- "We'll give you a pass on the deviant behavior with children but I'm afraid we have to do something about these harassment charges against women." Sheesh.

♠ Seems legitimate to ask (again) what the heck are we doing in Afghanistan? It's perpetual war. I am rapidly becoming an old man and my country has been at war in one place or another for my entire life.

♠ How goes the war in Syria? Who knows, right? I hear literally nothing these days, yet I am certain millions, nay, billions of warfare dollars are still being spent. We got Assad's troops, we got US special forces, we've got the Russians, we've got the Kurds, we've got players of all stripes fighting for a home among the sand dunes and I can't find out whether our side is winning or losing. The important thing is, do we have control over the oil yet?

♠ The US stock market is booming. The job market is opening up as well. Eight years of taxation and socialization have been shed and once again the economic engines of America have started up.

♠ California is burning. If that's not karma, I don't know what it is.

♠ Jerusalem will be Isreal's capital city and the Arabs are fit to be tied about it. Did you know it is prophecy that the Jewish temple in Jerusalem will be restored prior to the second coming of Christ? Maybe that's why the Arabs are so upset. Or maybe they just can't find a good cheeseburger in Dubai.

I could go on for days but I need to go watch my redneck neighbor as he searches for rotten goobers in his garden. Entertainment is hard to come by around here. Have a good day, friends, and don't let any of the fake news upset you. It's fake!

Thanks for reading!

Fake, Unreal, Misleading, Lying, Cheating...





Happier With Finger Painting


How was your Thanksgiving? Did you and your family gather round a big table full of food while you watched football? That seems to be the common theme among those who have families. Food and football. It's Monday morning and I was considering a post with bullet points like all the lazy bloggers do but as I considered my news points I realized most, if not all the news, is manipulated and bogus. They only tell us what they want us to believe. And those idiots who read the news from a teleprompter? They don't know what's going on. They're more concerned with how their make-up looks than whether or not we get the truth about anything.

Oh yeah. The Vegas shooting. What's up with that? I'll tell you what's up. It's bogus, that's what. I'm not saying I know precisely what happened or why but I am saying it doesn't take a genius to figure out somebody ran a very big scam. Hey, here's a question: do you know anybody who got shot or killed? Yeah, me neither although I've seen a bunch of questionable videos from people who say they were there.

These theatrics are coming hot and heavy these days. Nothing is as it seems. And yet, millions of people sit around and accept the mainstream version of events as if believing the government is in charge will make everything all right. Oh well, say my zombie friends, the government will figure it out. The joke's on you, pal, because the government has already figured it out.

Most folks don't realize the depth of corruption in which we find ourselves. When I was challenged to state the truth, I mentioned to my zombie friends that there is only one truth and the rest of our beliefs spring from our decision whether or not to believe this world and universe were created by an intelligent presence or that all this is random.

What do you think? Did we evolve from random strings of proteins animated by lightning, hmm? Makes about as much sense as God making it happen. The difference is if you believe everything is random, then there can be no prime mover, right? No need for one either, if that's the way you believe. Thus, in your life, there is no final authority and you think you are free to do whatever as long as you don't get caught fondling children. You become your own final authority. Out of that isolated, confused ego grows deception, greed, anger, confusion, and, of course, self-centeredness.

If people really believe in God, they are generally excited by it. For one thing, they believe when they pass away that they pass into another realm and there is no end to their lives because their souls are immortal. To participate, though, one must follow the cosmic rules while alive. Oh, you can still rob, steal, murder and maim as long as you ask forgiveness before the buzz comes to take you away.

The thing is, none of us really knows if heaven and God exists. These are ideas which we must take on faith alone. Lots of folks in the US these days have more faith in the Communist Party than they do in any old religion that promotes peace and charity. The same folks want to practice that same kind of faith in regard to the government. What grand folly is that? What exactly is it about your psychology that prevents you from exploring what is really going on?

If you can't get over your own fear that the government is not in charge and we're all going to die from global warming, starvation, terrorism, nuclear poisoning, inequality and any number of other calamities, then you truly need to develop a meaningful hobby. We don't need people like you influencing others and you will be a lot happier with your finger painting.

You Don't Need It



It's Thanksgiving, 2017! So, have a good one. If you get a minute, leave the television and go out to the backyard where it's quiet and inhale a breath, hold it, and listen. You can almost hear the sound of people dancing around the golden calf. Think about how much you've got and remind yourself that one day soon it's all going away. You don't need it, anyway.

He was lost in his own warehouse and all he wanted
was to be home with his genetically altered shih-tzu
and the comforting mechanical monkey
that sat on the top shelf in the bedroom closet.

-- fm The Galactic Center by Thomas C. Stone

I Touched It!


Let's get serious for a moment, shall we? Please don't roll your eyes. The recent flurry of sexual misconduct allegations by politicians and other media whores is an extension of the Left's attack on the Right as well as a wake-up call to the obligation of males to curb their sexually motivated comments and actions. [Ah, but are they sexually motivated or power motivated? Does it make any difference?]. These attacks are being used to leverage political power, to hound opponents, and call attention to the flexing of female (read minority) legal position. Yet more civil rights stuff. While poor conduct should not be rewarded, neither should it rise to the degree of seriousness we are presently witnessing. These stories, after all, are focused on men exclusively. Men in positions of power.

Additionally, when one finds numerous lies and omissions upon vetting a story, patterns begin to emerge and silent opinions are formed. To the chase, many of the accusations are not panning out.

I'm not talking about rape or about blatant abuse. Nobody wants that except for sickos and psychos (see my earlier article in which I state it appears everyone is either a sicko or a psycho.).

Don't you know these stories about unwarranted advances by men upon women have been circulating for millenia? Like scientists and engineers capturing the wind and turning it into energy, the Left is capturing the motion for their own advantage.

What if it continues to happen and men find themselves voted out of office in 2018? What if the Left bounces back and someone like Hillary gets herself elected el Presidente?

I just happen to have written a novel about a similar scenario. It's called The Gender Wars and I wrote it too many years ago but you can still purchase an ebook on Amazon or Apple or Barnes & Noble, etc.

When I complete my current writing projects, I'd like to go back to The Gender Wars and do a re-write, a second edition maybe.

Can The Devil Die?


No, but he can be bound. In related news, Charles Manson has died. If you are too young to remember, Charlie was the leader of a hippie family in Los Angeles back in the sixties. He tried to make it in the music business but he turned out to be better at influencing his followers. They went out at his bidding and killed some people and as crazy as it sounds, it was meant to start a race war. I kid you not.


Helter Skelter was the name of a Beatles' song Charlie liked and claimed it was a call to action against black people. Had Charlie taken too much acid? Nah, it sounds to me like he got a bad dose of that West Texas meth.

Old Charlie gained the reputation as a crazy and wiley killer who did not kill anybody himself but ordered "family" members to do the dirty work.

What'll happen to Charlie's body? I'll bet they'll slice and dice his brain and then claim he had liver spots on his pituitary gland or something like that. They'll find an organic excuse for his actions but it won't be the real reason. The real reason is that Charlie was angry and bitter.

My guess is Charles Manson shares a lot in common with many people in American society these days. He's branded as crazy because, well, he is -- he's psycho, he's short, and he's mad about it. If I was short, I'd be mad about it too.

Anyway, I don't mean to make light of it (yes, I do too), but I wanted to add the song Charlie wrote and the Beach Boys actually recorded.


It doesn't sound much like Charlie's version and the original words are changed but they gave the old boy a writing credit anyway. I wonder how much Manson made off that song?

Crash Report


After a computer crash last week, I posted about my travails with Windows System 10 and how I managed to reload the OS after stumbling around and losing years worth of data. I hate System 10 because so much is going on in the background and the whole kit and kaboodle is beamed out into the "cloud" where any NSA employee can dial me up and check out my web surfing habits.

What's a paranoid geek to do? Install a new OS. And that's what I did.

I wanted to go with Linux because it is secure and relatively virus-free. I speak Unix so it was a no-brainer until I realized Microsoft Word does not run on Linux (at least, not very well). I use MS Word and I have to have it. After a little research, I settled on System 8.1. The install itself was not as simple as might be expected. I had to purchase the OS Product Key and then download the OS and installer to a thumb drive. Once there, I re-booted from the thumb drive and started the installer. Once things got going with the install, it went smoothly except that the installer did not give me a choice to create separate partitions for the OS and any Recovery operations. I considered stopping the install at that point, backing out, and then creating the partitions manually but did not. Why? Because I had been working on it all week by then and the partitions weren't absolutely necessary...

After the install was complete, I began adjusting settings, installing applications (like MS Word, Dreamweaver, etc.), and downloading updates. The next morning, I discovered 183 new updates which had been applied overnight. The updates are still coming in, by the way. I think I am over 200 now and that's probably the extent of it.

The new system, Windows 8.1, works great. It's fast, stable, and everything I do is not shared with the CIA (unless I want it to be shared.). Windows 10 puts your business on the street and makes it available to those who believe a great beehive would be the height of human evolution. Windows 8.1 was designed as an interim system on the way to System 10 and will be supported by Microsoft until 2023. That's long enough for me. When the smart network is rolled out, attached terminals will be further slaved to the matrix, er, the net. I choose to control and monitor my connection. How about you? Do you love your smartphone so much that you turn a blind eye to the total lack of privacy? Hmm?

MC For Sale


This is my 2006 Triumph America. Well, it's pictures from the catalog but mine looks just like it minus the pad seat on the rear fender (I removed it.). The bike only has 6500 miles and it spends more time in the garage than it does on the road.

In an effort to accelerate my four-wheel vehicle search and gather cash for my ultimate purchase, I have decided to offer up the motorcycle in exchange for a very fair amount of cash money. No checks, no promises of payment, no trades unless it's heavily in my favor, no modifications, all deals final, and original motorcycle User's Guide included. What a deal, right? Except you gotta bring cash.

I wish I could say this is the bike I rode all the way down to Panama, but it's not. I've never been to Panama. I am the original owner and I want you to have this motorcycle. You will look smart sitting atop its sleek and powerful design. You will be transformed into a manly man as you hang on to a silver streak while the wind tosses your hair in pure freedom.

I'm not kidding. The machine is for sale. Leave message in comments or email at northtexasdrifter@hush.com.

Throw The Jew Down The Well



This sort of goes along with the previous post and no,
I am not advocating throwing Jews down wells.

Clap Your Hands!



If you're crazy and you know it, clap your hands.

I have come to the very real conclusion that most people have lost their minds. Maybe the earth passed through an area of intense gamma rays and it did something to the collective consciousness, or maybe most everyone is finally on one drug or another and incapable of rubbing two coherent thoughts together, or maybe ground pollution has settled in our drinking water turning us all into paranoid swamp things. Whatever the cause, pretty much everybody I know has strayed from the path of rationality out into the fields of delirium.

The general public seems incapable of thinking for themselves anymore although practically everyone insists their way is the correct way. Highly-paid, programmed government workers populate city hall and collect their perqs as if they deserve the special treatment they get by working for a corrupt and dysfunctional system. The rest of us can only cower and cast our eyes down while asking for a driver's license application.

They're crazy. All of them. The media is right on this one. We have a national crisis over our mental health. Think about this: in Texas, thousands of these nutjobs have a license to carry a firearm. Heck, I'll bet it's the same in Oklahoma, or Wyoming (but not Connecticutt). Now, I'm not anti-gun (yet) but what's more scary than a triggered crazy person? I'll tell you: a crazy triggered person with a gun, that's what.

But this is not an anti-gun rant. It's an anti-crazy person rant.

I don't think crazy people should be allowed to vote. I've even got a problem with them standing in line in front of me at McDonald's. You don't know what they'll do from one moment to the next and personally, I don't want to get shot. Maybe they should have their own drive-thru lane. The Crazy Lane.

Anyway, pretty much everyone has gone completely off their rocker(s) as far as I can tell. I don't know whether it's something in the air or in the water but it's an epidemic, just like on The Walking Dead.

I'll give 'em one thing, though. As scary as they are, they sure are entertaining. Also, slow walkers make for easy targets.

Nothin' Left To Lose


"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose."

My Dell XPS 8500 main-frame locked up and died last week and I ended up losing the OS, years of documents and artwork, as well as my home entertainment system (I listen to music and stream MMA, sometimes movies), and the worthless collection of metal and silicone is also my main research tool. It's a big deal.

The lost manuscripts can be retrieved from my distributors. Some artwork too.

All the high dollar programs are gone -- literally thousands of dollars' worth and yet I can replace these as well, so I am not pulling out my hair.

All my back-up and recovery procedures failed. I actually bought and installed recovery software that further scrambled the system and deleted volumes instead of repairing and replacing.

I reloaded the system only to have Microsoft reject the old product ID numbers. What the...? I know, if something can go wrong, it will, and it did. After a frantic two days, System 10 is reinstalled and working. So, I am computing again but Microsoft will not "activate" my re-installed OS which means I cannot download and install system updates.

Oh, by the way, System 10 was the culprit. I hate System 10. I hate the push into cloud computing. Plus, I am not crazy about Bill Gates. He's ugly and he never offered me a job. I really don't care for Zuckerberg either but that's another story.

Since Microsoft refuses to verify my product ID, I must purchase a new key and apply it to a re-installed OS. Here we go again. I figure now is my chance to get away from System 10 and fall back to an earlier, more stable OS. But which way to go? I'm leaning towards Windows 8.1 but Windows 7 is a strong contender too. If any of my faithful or not so faithful readers would care to voice their opinions on which Microsoft OS I should revert to, I'd love to hear your opinion.

In other news...

The world certainly seems to be on fire and headed towards destruction, doesn't it? Common sense, traditional values, true fairness, liberty and justice -- it's all gone so quit trying to make excuses for our government and our leaders. They are totally corrupt and the truth is, we will never know exactly how much damage they have done to society at large and the human race.

What we think we know is based on lies and misinformation. That's the way the global big shots want it; keep us in the dark like mushrooms in a warehouse. Feed us drugs and alcohol and manufactured food that is not really food (Soylent Green is people!) and then broadcast every approved perversion you can think of in the name of entertainment!

Do you really want to be a part of the madness?

Nationwide elections yesterday appear to be rigged (again). Nothing is as it seems these days.

Don't worry, she's acting. It was a drill.
A quick word concerning all these mass shootings. You don't still think they are random, do you? One effect I have noticed is that my redneck neighbors (yes, the same ones who threatened me bodily harm) are now wearing long-sleeve shirts with the shirttails hanging out. If you don't know what that means, it means they have pistols stuffed in the back of their pants. Not a big deal until you consider how fucking stupid and angry these rednecks are. They're looking for an excuse to pull out those guns. Pull a gun on me at your own risk.

Can't we all just get along? Apparently not.

Sales for Xylanthia by Thomas C. Stone are unfortunately lagging. That's a shame because The Xylanthian Chronicles -- the three books that make up the trilogy -- are pretty dang good entertainment, if I don't say so myself. Here is the beginning of the first book:

[Taken fm Xylanthia Chap 1]

"They say the older you get, the faster time flies. Of course, it just seems that way. To Mackenzie, it was as though life had just begun: a dream job, a move to the city, training sessions, new friends. Within a week, home and hearth was far away and insignificant. She didn't miss it at all.

There was good reason for the easy adaptation. Like the other initiates, Mac was given a neuro treatment that smoothed out the rough places in her memories. The procedure was part of the program for all "traveling" company initiates. "Traveling" being an insider's reference to the class of Braithwaite employees volunteering for deep space operations.

It was Mac's life ambition to travel to other worlds. Trained in chemistry and biophysics and laboratory procedures, she proudly called herself a scientist; a junior scientist, to be sure, but a woman of science, rationale, and reason. Her parents, never once thinking their daughter would actually be hired by one of the mega-corps, encouraged her dreams and their support was revealed in Mac's good marks in school and, other than one small incident, a sparkling conduct record.

To their utter consternation, Mac was selected by Braithwaite from the yearly field of recruits. Everyone wanted to work for one of the mega-corps and why not? A job with one of the big boys and one was set for life. Which was fine, but Mac wanted to travel off-planet, which meant Faster-Than-Light travel over long distances. Neither of Mac's parents were physicists but they knew if Mac went "out there," by the time she returned they would likely be dead and gone. They would never see their daughter again.

Mac loved her parents but in all honesty, they were victims of modern society and had divorced, re-married, divorced again until the whole idea of family came to be a hassle. Early on, Mac knew she could leave it all behind.

Her neuro-scan revealed nuances about Mac's psychology and provided a map for enhancement. Space voyagers had to be calm, steady, and physically fit. Removing traumatic memory helped to attain the desired state of mind. Afterwards, Mac felt wonderful, but she could no longer remember what her brother looked like. She had a relationship with a boy her first year in college, but she could not remember his face either or his name. The neurologists also took away the memory of a broken arm from falling out of a tree when Mac was six. Things like that. The memories turned out to be just like her thoughts of home: she did not miss them at all.

She loved the city but an accelerated training schedule called for her transfer to one of the great orbital platforms where she trained and attended classes. She was told she was selected specifically to support the survey mission to Sirius, to a moon in orbit around the great gas giant Xylanthia where her talents as a bio-surveyor were required. Turns out the place was crazy with wildlife.

The mission was already established and needed more personnel to help catalog all the new species. And so it was to be Mac and another young woman, Tyra Yasmin, who would be put into suspended animation and sent the six light years to the binary system via a fully automated starship.

Tyra's background was similar to Mac's. She was a new company employee and the rumor mill claimed she was brilliant and destined for big things. Tyra made Mac uncomfortable on the shuttle ride into orbit by staring so long that Mac finally asked, “Can I help you?”

Tyra shook her head, said no, and turned away.

Well, thought Mac, women were like that. We size up one another according to strengths and weaknesses. Tyra was fit, larger than Mac, and had a brilliant resume. It was likely she was looking to become the dominant female on this trip. Mac sighed. There’s one in every crowd."

This Guy Sez...



Is It A Setup?


Another shooting incident in a small Texas town at a Baptist church. Some guy, rumored to be associated with Antifa, opened up on a small congregation with a Ruger AR and killed or injured practically everybody there. Now, I haven't seen any blood yet and they say the victims have been moved to hospitals all over the area so it may be difficult to get a solid background on these people. I say this only because previous mass shootings (Las Vegas, Sandy Hook, Santa Barbara, et al) appear to be bogus set-ups put on like coordinated stageplays by no one other than our own authorities! Well, I don't know if this one is the same but so far I have no reason to believe otherwise.

Why do these nuts always kill themselves at the end? That's another part of the narrative I question. By the way, if you're not questioning all these shootings by now, I would guess there is something wrong with your thought process.

Powerful global organizations want to create civil war in the US. We're really already there and saying conspiracies don't exist will not save you.

Speaking of conspiracies, my main computer crashed last week halting operations here at the Drifter. When I went to check my backups I discovered partials, so guess what? I lost much of my data including old manuscripts (I can get those back from distributor copies), book covers, graphics files, notes, and I finally had to admit System 10 and lousy associated software conspired to make me look foolish.

I lost the first pages of my latest manuscript but I can re-create what I had written. Not the end of the world. I needed to wipe that drive and reinstall anyway as it was full of malware from all the sketchy sites I visit.

Moving on, you're probably wondering just who can you trust among your friends, the government, yes and maybe even your own family. I can't answer that; however, if you have built yourself a good base within your spirit and your own ability to use logic and common sense, you'll see through the lies. Good luck and may the force be with you.

Entrainment


Brainwave entrainment, also referred to as brainwave synchronization and neural entrainment, refers to the capacity of the brain to naturally synchronize its brainwave frequencies with the rhythm of periodic external stimuli, most commonly auditory, visual, or tactile. Brainwave entrainment technologies are used to induce various brain states, such as relaxation or sleep, by creating stimuli that occur at regular, periodic intervals to mimic electrical cycles of the brain during the desired states, thereby "training" the brain to consciously alter states. Recurrent acoustic frequencies, flickering lights, or tactile vibrations are the most common examples of stimuli applied to generate different sensory responses.

The fluctuating frequency of oscillations generated by the synchronous activity of cortical neurons, measurable with an electroencephalogram (EEG), via electrodes attached to the scalp, are conveniently categorized into general bands, in order of decreasing frequency, measured in Hertz (HZ) as follows:

Gamma, 30 to 50 Hz
Beta, 14 to 30 Hz
Alpha, 8 to 14 Hz
Theta, 4 to 8 Hz
Delta, 0.1 to 4 Hz

In addition, three further wave forms are often delineated in electroencephalographic studies:

Mu, 8 to 12 Hz
Sigma (sleep spindle), 12 to 14 Hz
Sensorimotor rhythm (SMR), 12.5 to 15.5 Hz

It was Berger who first described the frequency bands Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta.

Electroencephalography (EEG) has been most widely used in the study of neural activity generated by large groups of neurons, known as neural ensembles, including investigations of the changes that occur in electroencephalographic profiles during cycles of sleep and wakefulness. EEG signals change dramatically during sleep and show a transition from faster frequencies to increasingly slower frequencies, indicating a relationship between the frequency of neural oscillations and cognitive states including awareness and consciousness.


Entrainment is a term originally derived from complex systems theory, and denotes the way that two or more independent, autonomous oscillators with differing rhythms or frequencies, when situated in a context and at a proximity where they can interact for long enough, influence each other mutually, to a degree dependent on coupling force, such that they adjust until both oscillate with the same frequency. Examples include the mechanical entrainment or cyclic synchronization of two electric clothes dryers placed in close proximity, and the biological entrainment evident in the synchronized illumination of fireflies.

Entrainment is a concept first identified by the Dutch physicist Christiaan Huygens in 1665 who discovered the phenomenon during an experiment with pendulum clocks: He set them each in motion and found that when he returned the next day, the sway of their pendulums had all synchronized.

Such entrainment occurs because small amounts of energy are transferred between the two systems when they are out of phase in such a way as to produce negative feedback. As they assume a more stable phase relationship, the amount of energy gradually reduces to zero, with systems of greater frequency slowing down, and the other speeding up.

Subsequently, the term 'entrainment' has been used to describe a shared tendency of many physical and biological systems to synchronize their periodicity and rhythm through interaction. This tendency has been identified as specifically pertinent to the study of sound and music generally, and acoustic rhythms specifically. The most ubiquitous and familiar examples of neuromotor entrainment to acoustic stimuli is observable in spontaneous foot or finger tapping to the rhythmic beat of a song.

Exogenous rhythmic entrainment, which occurs outside the body, has been identified and documented for a variety of human activities, which include the way people adjust the rhythm of their speech patterns to those of the subject with whom they communicate, and the rhythmic unison of an audience clapping.

Even among groups of strangers, the rate of breathing, locomotive and subtle expressive motor movements, and rhythmic speech patterns have been observed to synchronize and entrain, in response to an auditory stimuli, such as a piece of music with a consistent rhythm. Furthermore, motor synchronization to repetitive tactile stimuli occurs in animals, including cats and monkeys as well as humans, with accompanying shifts in electroencephalogram (EEG) readings.

Examples of endogenous entrainment, which occurs within the body, include the synchronizing of human circadian sleep-wake cycles to the 24-hour cycle of light and dark and the synchronization of a heartbeat to a cardiac pacemaker.

Brainwaves, or neural oscillations, share the fundamental constituents with acoustic and optical waves, including frequency, amplitude and periodicity. Consequently, Huygens' discovery precipitated inquiry into whether or not the synchronous electrical activity of cortical neural ensembles might not only alter in response to external acoustic or optical stimuli but also entrain or synchronize their frequency to that of a specific stimulus.

Brainwave entrainment is a colloquialism for such 'neural entrainment', which is a term used to denote the way in which the aggregate frequency of oscillations produced by the synchronous electrical activity in ensembles of cortical neurons can adjust to synchronize with the periodic vibration of an external stimuli, such as a sustained acoustic frequency perceived as pitch, a regularly repeating pattern of intermittent sounds, perceived as rhythm, or of a regularly rhythmically intermittent flashing light.

If I passed this test, so can you.
Changes in neural oscillations, demonstrable through electro-encephalogram (EEG) measurements, are precipitated by listening to music, which can modulate autonomic arousal ergotropically and trophotropically, increasing and decreasing arousal respectively. Musical auditory stimulation has also been demonstrated to improve immune function, facilitate relaxation, improve mood, and contribute to the alleviation of stress. These findings have contributed to the development of neurologic music therapy, which uses music and song as an active and receptive intervention, to contribute to the treatment and management of disorders characterized by impairment to parts of the brain and central nervous system, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's disease, and autism.

Meanwhile, the therapeutic benefits of listening to sound and music is a well-established principle upon which the practice of receptive music therapy is founded. The term 'receptive music therapy' denotes a process by which patients or participants listen to music with specific intent to therapeutically benefit; and is a term used by therapists to distinguish it from 'active music therapy' by which patients or participants engage in producing vocal or instrumental music. Receptive music therapy is an effective adjunctive intervention suitable for treating a range of physical and mental conditions.

The Frequency Following Response (FFR), also referred to as Frequency Following Potential (FFP), is a specific response to hearing sound and music, by which neural oscillations adjust their frequency to match the rhythm of auditory stimuli. The use of sound with intent to influence cortical brainwave frequency is called auditory driving, by which frequency of neural oscillation is 'driven' to entrain with that of the rhythm of a sound source.

Human subjects rarely hear frequencies below 20 Hz, which is exactly the range of Delta, Theta, Alpha, and low to mid Beta brainwaves. Among the methods by which some investigations have sought to overcome this problem is to measure electroencephalogram (EEG) readings of a subject while he or she listens to binaural beats.

A binaural beat is an auditory illusion perceived when two different pure-tone sine waves, both with frequencies lower than 1500 Hz, with less than a 40 Hz difference between them, are presented to a listener dichotically, that is one through each ear. For example, if a 530 Hz pure tone is presented to a subject's right ear, while a 520 Hz pure tone is presented to the subject's left ear, the listener will perceive the auditory illusion of a third tone, in addition to the two pure-tones presented to each ear. The third sound is called a binaural beat, and in this example would have a perceived pitch correlating to a frequency of 10 Hz, that being the difference between the 530 Hz and 520 Hz pure tones presented to each ear.

Binaural-beat perception originates in the inferior colliculus of the midbrain and the superior olivary complex of the brainstem, where auditory signals from each ear are integrated and precipitate electrical impulses along neural pathways through the reticular formation up the midbrain to the thalamus, auditory cortex, and other cortical regions. Listening to binaural beats has been shown to precipitate auditory driving by which ensembles of cortical neurons entrain their frequencies to that of the binaural beat, with associated changes in self-reported subjective experience of emotional and cognitive state. It is however possible that the real cause of the observed changes is the headphones, rather than the sound itself, as demonstrated in 2002 during a University of Virginia presentation at the Society for Psychophysiologial Research. It was shown that EEG changes did not occur when the standard electromagnetic headphones were replaced by air conduction headphones, which were connected to a remote transducer by rubber tubes. This suggests that the basis for the entrainment effects is electromagnetic rather than acoustical.

An American Tune



"American Tune"

Many's the time I've been mistaken
And many times confused
Yes, and I've often felt forsaken
And certainly misused
But I'm all right, I'm all right
I'm just weary to my bones
Still, you don't expect to be
Bright and bon vivant
So far away from home, so far away from home

And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
I don't have a friend who feels at ease
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered
or driven to its knees
But it's all right, it's all right
For we've lived so well so long
Still, when I think of the road we're traveling on
I wonder what's gone wrong
I can't help it, I wonder what's gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly
And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
The Statue of Liberty
Sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hour
and sing an American tune
But it's all right, it's all right
You can't be forever blessed
Still, tomorrow's going to be another working day
And I'm trying to get some rest
That's all, I'm trying to get some rest

Witch-hunt


Hey, you! You know what a witch-hunt is? A witch-hunt is an attempt to find and punish a particular group of people who are being blamed for something, often simply because of their opinions and not because they have actually done anything wrong. This sort of strategy is often seen in politics and is used to discredit the opposite party.

President Trump's campaign manager was indicted by Robert Mueller, a partisan investigator from the Democrat Party. The sold-out media will now erupt in a orgasmic display of outrage and I-told-you-so's even without providing any evidence. It's like Pelosi, Waters, and other Demos said, they will do anything and everything to hurt Donald Trump and/or the Trump administration even if it comes down to lying and cheating. After all, they are sooo good at it.

Who are the real criminals here?

A witch-hunt is used to uncover disloyalty, subversive political activity, etc., usually conducted with much publicity and often relying upon inconclusive evidence and capitalizing on public fear of unpopular opinions. The real criminals are those who would take away your liberty. The Democratic Party, Antifa, BLM, The American Communist Party -- the list goes on and on these days -- these are the actual 21st century American gangsters.

Remember, in America you can get all the justice money can buy.

Also in big news this morning, Kevin Spacey finally admitted to being gay. That was news? Tell us something we don't already know.

New Movies Not So Good


I read reports that Hollywood is losing money on its movies these days which is not surprising because most everything I've seen lately really sucks. I mean, come on, they're making movies with stories that center on political correctness instead of real-world problems. Oh well, what can you expect when women and children and globalists seem to be running the show?

One of the bad movies I viewed was Bladerunner 2045. It was a continuation from the earlier classic sci-fi movie Bladerunner featuring the directorial work of Ridley Scott and the acting chops of none other than Harrison Ford.

Now, Harrison Ford has always bored me with his long, painful expressions of confusion and/or physical pain. Never been a fan, but this latest movie drops him to new lows. The movie was hokey with cheap effects that were supposed to harken back to the earlier Bladerunner's SPFX. Well, it didn't work and the lousy acting couldn't save the film.

Ordinarily, I would write up a sizeable review and justify my opinion but I simply see this movie as a waste of your time and your hard-earned money. You might want to read a book instead.

Hollywood is really letting us down these days. It's not about entertainment anymore (if it ever was), it's about politics and propaganda.

Edit: Geostorm is another made-for-morons sci-fi movie come lately that will insult your intelligence and waste yet more time and money. One way out of this desert of non-entertainment is to find a good book. I happen to have one for you. It's called Xylanthia and for a fraction of the price of a movie ticket you can purchase and download a wonderful ebook by yours truly. Proceeds go to my new vehicle fund. That's right, the old truck needs to be replaced, so please avoid lousy movies and buy my books. Thanks!

"If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."
