Lookit Sri Lanka in 2010.

Land of quaint places, with the high gov't officials in palaces with crystalline swimming pools...



Skip to 2012.

Those politicians that did not get out of town... the palace has revolutionaries (don't call them rioters) of all ages in that huge swimming pool. Where was the Sri Lankan military? The Praetorian Guard?


NONE of that can happen here, right? Those are brown people. And they had no have guns.

If you saw it... and you did... you can believe it. And you can believe it here. <-- Again, this is happening: "They Must Be Shown"

Sri Lanka, otherwise previously known as Ceylon, an island located south of India, with at least 2 ethnic groups (local TAMIL and HINDI from India) and probably several "religions", was the scene of decades of revolts, pretty bloody, by a group named "the Tamil Tigers"...

Just an FYI.

The writer of that article ought to open his concrete cranium to stop picking the thought-free candy off the floor. The asshole should take two minutes to find out the bind the politicians, Faucis, and Med CORPORATIONS have put the physicians in.

If they sneak real cures to their patients... they get arrested.

If they refuse to give the jab to people... they get fired and blacklisted.

If they say ONE FUCKING WORD OUT LOUD (emphasis on the "out loud" part, hint, hint) to anyone about what they believe to be the truth about the jabs... They are shut up, vilified, fired, sued, possibly arrested.

I wonder what the crusading "Steve Kirsch of substack" would do and say if HIS balls were in that wringer. FJB and Fuck All Asshole Steve Kirsches.

I can't help but think o fit as a mechanic and a machine. Draning the oil & running the machine then jabbing a wrenck into the gears not to just break it but to destroy it. If we all did this the world would stop in a heart beat.

This is insane! Our society, as we once knew it, is crumbling right in front of our eyes. The potential explosion when enough people realize what's been done top the by the people they trusted with the health and well being of themselves, their loved ones and especially their children is enormous, unprecedented and unpredictable once they realized they've been led to slaughter by those very same people.

I can't imagine the level of revenge and bloodlust that could be unleashed

Actually Kirsch, a self-made tech billionaire who IIRC got hoodwinked early into the Jab...has been one of the most outspoken voices trying to stop the insanity. He's done media presentations with the FLCCC physicians and nurses; he's interviewed nurses, persons who've lost their jobs, and injured persons.

He's one of the good guys. Articles like what he did, are to raise questions in the minds of the Mass-Formation psychotics. He knows...and as someone inside with the Data-Tech world, who's become an apostate, he knows about Cancelling.

That's why he writes on Substack, whereas in times past, he had access to his business-friends' media channels.

We’ll said

He offers to pay opponents to debate

Has standing list of 100 questions the pro vaxxers need to answer

Funniest thing ever was the politifact interview where they unintentionally gave him consent to record and are now begging him to take the recording down because he made them look stupid. Told them what to check and who to ask to get to the truth and they pushed on with their purpose which was obviously to get an embarrassing money quote from the “king of misinformation”

The January 6th Obsession Claims Another Victim​

The January 6th Obsession Claims Another Victim

With their unrelenting witch hunt and their bogus committee hearings and prosecutions, the Democrats and their supporters in the Department of Justice, the establishment wing of the Republican Party and the corrupt mainstream news media have triggered another January 6th protester to take his life. Last week, Mark Aungst of South Williamsport, PA committed suicide, according to the Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr.

Aungst, a gas field well service technician, traveled to Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021, to attend the “Stop the Steal” rally organized by supporters of President Donald Trump. After the rally, Aungst joined thousands of others in marching to the U.S. Capitol.

He did not attack any police officers or engage in any violence. He did not destroy or damage any property in the U.S. Capitol.

Aungst entered the building twice and walked around. Along with co-defendant Tammy Bronsburg, Aungst took images and videos on a cell phone. According to federal prosecutors, he committed the misdemeanor crime of “parading or demonstrating inside a restricted building.”

Aungst and Bronsburg pleaded guilty to this misdemeanor, after three other charges were dismissed. He was scheduled to be sentenced on September 27, 2022, by U.S. District Court Judge Reggie B. Walton. Aungst faced the possibility of six months in prison and a fine of $5,000.

Dwight Smith, Who Won World Series With Braves, Dead at 58​

July 24, 2022

This is an excerpt from Fox News.
Dwight Smith, Who Won World Series With Braves, Dead at 58


Dwight Smith, a World Series champion outfielder with the Atlanta Braves, died Friday, the organization announced. He was 58.

Smith died of congestive heart and lung failure, the team said. He lived in Peachtree City, about 30 miles south of Atlanta.

“We are saddened by the passing earlier today of Dwight Smith, an integral member of our 1995 World Series championship team,” the Braves said.

“The 1989 NL Rookie of the Year runner-up, Dwight enjoyed an eight-year Major League career that included two postseason trips with the Cubs and Braves. Dwight was also a beloved alumni member, and his infectious smile will be missed around Truist Park.

“Our deepest condolences to his wife Cheryl, daughters Tylor and Shannyn and son Dwight, Jr.”


Smith made his debut with the Chicago Cubs in 1989. He hit .324 with 111 hits and nine home runs. He finished second in Rookie of the Year voting to teammate Jerome Walton.

What happend to


The Sixth Amendment guarantees the rights of criminal defendants, including the right to a public trial without unnecessary delay, the right to a lawyer, the right to an impartial jury, and the right to know who your accusers are and the nature of the charges and evidence against you.


Seems anyone holding this up is now guilty of murder........ and should be held accountable.

‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Law & Order’ actor Paul Sorvino dies at 83​

https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/ne...rvino-dies-at-83/ar-AAZXYrk?OCID=ansmsnnews11

Paul Sorvino, an imposing actor who specialized in playing crooks and cops like Paulie Cicero in “Goodfellas” and the NYPD sergeant Phil Cerreta on “Law & Order,” has died. He was 83.

1658787747721.png

His publicist Roger Neal said he died Monday morning of natural causes at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Sorvino had dealt with health issues over the past few years.

Mira Sorvino, his daughter, wrote a tribute on Twitter: “My father the great Paul Sorvino has passed. My heart is rent asunder- a life of love and joy and wisdom with him is over. He was the most wonderful father. I love him so much. I’m sending you love in the stars, Dad, as you ascend.”

Many responded to Mira Sorvino’s tweet with condolences and sympathy. Jane Lynch wrote, “Your father sang ‘Danny Boy’ for my Aunt Marge at The Chicago Film Critics Awards in 2012. We all cried.” Rob Reiner, who appeared in one of his father’s films with Sorvino, said he was sending love. Lorraine Bracco tweeted two broken heart emojis.

In his over 50 years in the entertainment business, Sorvino was a mainstay in films and television, playing an Italian American communist in Warren Beatty’s “Reds,” Henry Kissinger in Oliver Stone’s “Nixon” and mob boss Eddie Valentine in “The Rocketeer.” He would often say that while he might be best known for playing gangsters (and his very good system for slicing garlic) his real passions were poetry, painting and opera.

Born in Brooklyn in 1939 to a mother who taught piano and father who was a foreman in a robe factory, Sorvino was musically inclined from a young age and attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York where he fell for the theater. He made his Broadway debut in 1964 in “Bajour” and his film debut in Carl Reiner’s “Where’s Poppa?” in 1970.

With his 6-foot-4-inch stature, Sorvino made an impactful presence no matter the medium. In the 1970s, he acted alongside Al Pacino in “The Panic in Needle Park” and with James Caan in “The Gambler,” reteamed with Reiner in “Oh, God!” and was among the ensemble in William Friedkin’s bank robbery comedy “The Brink’s Job.” In John G. Avildsen’s “Rocky” follow-up “Slow Dancing in the Big City,” Sorvino got to play a romantic lead and use his dance training opposite professional ballerina Anne Ditchburn.

He was especially prolific in the 1990s, kicking off the decade playing Lips in Beatty’s “Dick Tracy” and Paul Cicero in Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas,” who was based on the real-life mobster Paul Vario, and 31 episodes on Dick Wolf’s “Law & Order.” He followed those with roles in “The Rocketeer,” “The Firm,” "Nixon,” which got him a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination, and Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo + Juliet” as Juliet’s father, Fulgencio Capulet. Beatty would turn to Sorvino often, enlisting him again for his political satire “Bulworth,” which came out in 1998, and his 2016 Hollywood love letter “Rules Don’t Apply.”

Sorvino had three children from his first marriage, including Academy Award-winning actor Mira Sorvino. He also directed and starred in a film written by his daughter Amanda Sorvino and featuring his son Michael Sorvino.

When he learned that Mira Sorvino had been among the women allegedly sexually harassed and blacklisted by Harvey Weinstein in the midst of the #MeToo reckoning, he told TMZ that if he had known, Weinstein, “Would not be walking. He’d be in a wheelchair.”

He was proud of his daughter and cried when she won the best supporting actress Oscar for “Mighty Aphrodite” in 1996. He told the Los Angeles Times that night that he didn’t have the words to express how he felt.

“They don’t exist in any language that I’ve ever heard — well, maybe Italian,” he said.

But he wanted to be seen for more than what he was on screen and took particular pride in his singing. In 1996, “Paul Sorvino: An Evening of Song” was broadcast on television as a part of a PBS fundraising campaign. Songs performed included “Torna A Sorriento,” “Guaglione,” “O Sole Mio,” “The Impossible Dream” and “Mama.”

“I’m a pop singer in the sense Mario Lanza was,” Sorvino said in an interview the Tampa Tribune. “It astonishes me that no

American male singer sings with a full voice anymore. Where have all the tenors gone?”

The weight of his voice, he thought, made it difficult to train.

“It’s like trying to park a bus in a VW parking space,” he said.

He also ran a horse rescue in Pennsylvania, had a grocery store pasta sauce line based on his mother’s recipe, and sculpted a bronze statue of the late playwright Jason Miller that resides in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Sorvino had starred in Miller’s Tony- and Pulitzer-winning play “That Championship Season” on Broadway in 1972, which also got him a Tony nomination, and its film adaptation.

In 2014, he married political pundit Dee Dee Benkie and said that a goal of his later life was to “disabuse people of the notion that I’m a slow-moving, heavy-lidded thug.”

“Our hearts are broken, there will never be another Paul Sorvino, he was the love of my life, and one of the greatest performers to ever grace the screen and stage,” his wife said in a statement. She was by his side when he died.

As with most who starred in “Goodfellas,” the image would follow him for the rest of his life which he had complex feelings about.

’Most people think I’m either a gangster or a cop or something,” he said. “The reality is I’m a sculptor, a painter, a best-selling author, many, many things — a poet, an opera singer, but none of them is gangster.... It would be nice to have my legacy more than that of just tough guy.”

Country Star Hank Williams Jr’s Wife Cause of Death Revealed​

July 25, 2022

This is an excerpt from The Daily Wire.
Country Star Hank Williams Jr’s Wife Cause of Death Revealed


The wife of country music legend Hank Williams Jr., Mary Jane Thomas, reportedly died from complications related to cosmetic surgery.

Thomas, who was married to Williams for more than 30 years, passed back in March. She died from a collapsed lung, TMZ reported Monday. The 58-year-old died one day after she went under the knife for liposuction.

The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner revealed that Mary Jane’s death is being classified as an accident, according to TMZ. The examiner reportedly confirmed Thomas suffered a fatal injury during a cosmetic procedure.

The report further revealed that Thomas had liposuction on her back, arms, and stomach, and she also had her breast implants removed.

Williams and Thomas’ son Sam released a statement after her passing, as The Daily Wire reported.

“My dear Mama Mary Jane was a beautiful soul who forever affected everyone who knew her,” Sam said. “She had a smile and presence that lit up every room and she never met a stranger she didn’t befriend. Her spirit was gentle and giving. She could take down a ten-point buck and fix dinner for her grandchildren at the same time! Now she gets to radiate from above with my sister Katherine Diana right by her side.”

“She grew up competing in baton and cheerleading and was one of Hawaiian Tropic’s top models,” the statement continued. “My father fell in love with the Daytona Beach beauty the minute he set eyes on her in the early ’80s. They went on to live the most powerful love story of travel and hunting and raising a family.”

“She is survived by my father, her two parents Ramona and Bill, her brother Andy, her sister Angela, myself and her three grandchildren: Beau Weston, Tennyson Hiram and Audrey Jane,” Sam added. “Rest in peace Mama, I will always be the son of Mary Jane.”

'Leave It To Beaver' actor Tony Dow dies at 77 after cancer battle: 'A beautiful soul'​

"Leave It To Beaver" actor Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver in the popular sitcom, died Tuesday at 77.
Dow's manager Frank Bilotta said in a email to USA TODAY Tuesday that the actor "passed from cancer."
In a now-deleted statement on Dow's Facebook page, Bilotta and Renee James shared the news: "It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share with you the passing of our beloved Tony this morning," they said.
"Tony was a beautiful soul - kind, compassionate, funny and humble. It was truly a joy to just be around him. His gentle voice and unpretentious manner was immediately comforting and you could not help but love him," they added.
"The world has lost an amazing human being, but we are all richer for the memories that he has left us. From the warm reminiscences of Wally Cleaver to those of us fortunate enough to know him personally - thank you Tony. And thank you for the reflections of a simpler time, the laughter, the friendship and for the feeling that you were a big brother to us all," the post said.
On the hit sitcom, which aired on CBS and then ABC from 1957-63, Wally was the older son of Ward and June, a straighter contrast to the quirkier main character of Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (Jerry Mathers). A popular jock, Wally was also ensnared in the schemes of his friend, the mischievous and smooth-talking Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond).
The news comes less than three months after the actor and and his wife, Lauren Shulkind put out a joint statement sharing the "very sad news" of his cancer diagnosis, though they didn't disclose details of the disease.
"Dear Friends & Fans of Tony Dow, I have some very sad news to share with you. Unfortunately, Tony has once again been diagnosed with cancer. He is approaching this reality so bravely, but it is truly heartbreaking," the joint statement read.

Mathers mourned his "Beaver" co-star in a post to Facebook Tuesday, saying Dow was not just a brother on TV but "in may ways in life as well."
"Tony leaves an empty place in my heart that won’t be filled. He was always the kindest, most generous, gentle, loving, sincere, and humble man, that was my honor and privilege to be able to share memories together with for 65 years," he wrote. "The world may have lost a star today, but the heavens gained another.
Mathers had updated fans on Dow's cancer battle Thursday, asking for "prayers and healing."
He included a note from Dow's Facebook page, which said his illness had been a "rollercoaster of ups and downs" with Dow "in and out of the hospital with various complications and treatments."
The actor and director has been public about previous health struggles. In August he was hospitalized with pneumonia, Bilotta confirmed at the time.

Dow later reprised his role as Wally in a "Beaver" spinoff from 1983 to 1989. He also directed several episodes of 1993's "Babylon 5" along with 1999 episodes of "Crusade" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine."
The actor, born Anthony Lee Dow, has starred in an array of television series as a child and was involved in A Minor Consideration, a non-profit foundation to provide support for child actors.
In 2017, Dow reflected on his acting career and celebrated "Leave It To Beaver" 's 60th anniversary in an interview with the Arizona Republic, part of the USA TODAY Network.

“It’s nice to be remembered any way you can, so I have accomplished that,” Dow said at the time. “I’m much more appreciative of the show. I was not unappreciative, but I was always a little rebellious."
Dow's friends in the industry paid tribute to the actor on social media, also remembering him as an artist and carpenter.
TV producer Jim Michaels shared in a post, "I will miss my friend Tony Dow- an amazingly kind person, talented director, actor, wood craftsman and artist. I smile whenever I think of him and his loving wife Lauren. I loved golfing with him and his preferred barefoot approach to golf shoes!"
Wrestler Jerry Lawler shared wishes that Dow would rest peacefully. "Man, so sad to hear that a life-long TV favorite of mine, Tony Dow, Wally from 'Leave It To Beaver' just passed away. R.I.P. Wally"
Actor Alan Tudyk praised Dow's carpentry skills in a tweet: "Tony Dow built the beach house I lived in when I first moved to Los Angeles to shoot Firefly," he posted. "Hell of a carpenter."

Last report is that Dow is not dead but isn't expected to be around very much longer. His wife rescinded her report.

Shocking that Wally was looking at 80 years old. Just doesn't seem to add up.

And the Rolling Stones just started their 60 year anniversary concert tour... Paris last weekend... I think Berlin is next...

The regular frequent alleged blood transfusions in Switzerland rumored for the past 40 years might have been effective...
