Tucker Carlson Warns About Senate Bill 686, The Restrict Act, Framed Around TikTok But Focused on Domestic Online Censorship

Fox News Host Tucker Carlson did everyone a favor today by sending the warning about The Restrict Act, also known as Senate Bill 686 [SB686 HERE], also known as the bipartisan bill to empower the executive branch to shut down TikTok.

The Restrict Act, has very little to do with TikTok and everything to do with the United States government controlling online content. If you read the bill what you quickly discover is that congress is giving the Commerce Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence the power to shut down internet content they view as against their interests.

In very specific terms a lot of U.S. websites would be impacted. Why? Because a lot of websites use third-party ‘plug-ins’ or ‘widgets’ or software created in foreign countries to support the content on their site. The “Restrict Act” gives the DNI the ability to tell a website using any “foreign content” or software; that might be engaged in platform communication the U.S Government views as against their interests; to shut down or face a criminal charge. In very direct terms, the passage of SB686 would give the Dept of Commerce, DNI and DHS the ability to shut down what you are reading right now. This is a big deal.

Robert Reich has turned the whole thing back-asswards and upside down. It isn't Donald Trump who is eroding trust in our system of justice, it is the politically motivated persecution of Trump that is eroding trust in the justice system. And he hits the nail on the head: noone is above the law and if he has committed a crime, he should be prosecuted. The problem is that tiny word "if". Because this is NOT about the law or make-believe crimes. It is about the persecution, rather than prosecution, using the legal system, of one man to destroy his rights under the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

So, if Bragg were a serial killer or mass murderer, he should be tried and prosecuted. And if Robert Reich were a rapist and human trafficker, he should be investigated and indicted. BUT the reason these two jokers are not being investigated for such heinous crimes is NOT because noone is accusing them and they haven't actually committed those crimes. NO, the reason they are not being prosecuted for those crimes is because we have a two-tier justice system in this country. And if, there's that tiny little word again, if they did commit these crimes, they would be off-the-hook, or at least down-graded to a misdemeanor, because we have such a broken system of justice.

Now, we have a two-tiered system of justice in this country and it is completely unlawful and it is plain-as-day for all the world to see. What Bragg is doing is the real crime. The real crime being 18 US Code 242 : and if you read the law that is on the books, this is a death penalty crime. We have a law on the books that will prosecute and even serve the death penalty upon rogue actors within governemnt who would trample upon the rights of private citizens.


Depleted-uranium ammunition

The British have just announced that they will give Ukraine depleted-uranium ammunition for tanks. This baffles me. It should not have happened. If Russians are exposed to radioactivity (I will come to that discussion shortly), then this is a serious escalation for several reasons: 

  • The Russian soldiers will demand to be protected from such shells. No one wants to survive a war only to get cancer afterward. The motivation of the troops could decrease.
  • Donbass has much fertile land. If such shells are used, the people could consider the land contaminated and no longer usable for agriculture.
  • Both circumstances will diminish their trust in the Russian government to protect them.
  • Demands to use similar ammunition or tactical nukes could increase.

Such a course of action would be idiotic. If you use such ammunition, you only contribute to the contamination of your own land (Novorossiya), and the same goes for tactical nukes.

Here is what a reader wrote me in an email: (I can't verify that)

Dear Aleks: 

The depleted uranium is a very dense metal, ideal to be used on projectiles because of its mass, and also because it ignites at around 600 degrees Celsius; for example, it can penetrate an armoured vehicle and incinerate the crew once it enters the cabin. As a block or a projectile, the material can be handled with no health consequences , but when it ignites or explodes, it's turned into dust, then, it can be inhaled or ingested by live creatures and it wreaks havoc in the internal organs, creating a very large number of cancerous lesions and genetic malformations.

That is why it is considered a very dangerous polluting material, same as a dirty bomb — Source:  03/23/2023


There is no way to prevent this and there is no way to retaliate.

The United States always uses Great Britain for such actions as well as other special operations against Crimea and within Russia. Why? Escalation management. Russian retaliation should hit only the United Kingdom and not the United States, so as to avoid a Third World War.

This “insurance policy” could soon expire. The crossing of such a serious red line could lead to overt or covert retaliation against the British, which they will surely understand. Don’t ask about NATO in such a case. No one will commit suicide over such a provocation.

Now we come to the matter of whether the shells are radioactive. I have a degree in engineering and economics. So, I understand something about materials and physics but I certainly don’t know much about nuclear physics. So, I will offer an opinion based on my limited knowledge: 

  • In a solid state, such shells should be safe. They should not be radioactive, at least not to such a degree as to be dangerous for people. They have to be produced and handled by the West’s own people. Hence, I assume that safety is assured.
  • I know that extreme characteristics can be created if a material is highly accelerated under high pressure and develops high temperatures, especially material that is or WAS radioactive.
  • I’m not an expert but I assume there is a POSSIBILITY that, at the time of impact, such shells could be subject to the extreme circumstances described above and that some kind of residual radiation could be possible.
  • The question is, whom does it affect? There is a very high probability that the target will be dead. Is it enough to contaminate the ground? I have a hard time believing that it would. But I don’t know.
  • I assume the only people potentially exposed to radiation are those in proximity to the impact, and most of them will have died BECAUSE of the impact.

Again, I’m not a physicist. My opinion could be totally wrong.

In brief, the red line drawn by the Russians could be based on their knowledge that these shells are indeed toxic. Or perhaps the red line has been drawn only because of the effect on the Russian public and military morale, as discussed above, namely the fear that the Russian state can’t protect them. I don’t know.

But it is a serious escalation. I don’t like what is happening. The escalation doesn’t warrant an overt response but is certainly enough to cause serious political damage within Russia and the army. Well played, Brits.

Conclusion North Pole Map

The Ukrainians’ combat effectiveness is steadily decreasing. I assume it has fallen to 30%. And at the same time the ability to mobilize effective, motivated troops is also decreasing. Which leads me to conclude that if there is no escalation by NATO in terms of committing its own troops, the professional Ukraine army will cease to be able to fight a large-scale ground war in a few months. Afterward, the nature of the war will change dramatically, IF Kiev does not surrender. As we know, keeping up the fight is already a war crime by the West. If the West continues the fight after such a point, it would be a crime against humanity.

I certainly do not rule out such a possibility. In fact, I assume that, after the professional Ukrainian army loses the ability for large-scale armoured resistance, we will see many more months, or even years, of struggle and combat.

Undoubtedly, you want to know how the nature of the fight could change after the defeat of the current iteration of the army (the fourth according to the BMA classification). I don’t know. The situation most likely will become highly dynamic, and there will be all kind of escalations on both sides. To try to predict it would be reckless. The only thing I can do, and what I have done, is to predict the outcome. You need only read my two articles referred to in the “Basics” section.

The closer we get to the defeat of the fourth iteration of the Ukrainian army, the more escalation we can expect from the West. The delivery of depleted-uranium ammunition is an example. Many more such steps will soon follow. That’s why I maintain that no one can predict what the fight will look like between the collapse of the fourth iteration of the Ukrainian army (presumably the last iteration able to fight a large-scale land war) and the defeat of the Ukrainian state. It’s impossible to know. Or to estimate how long it will take.Read the full article at Black Mountain Analysis...https://bmanalysis.substack.com/p/war-analysis-7ce

To Hell with Ukraine
Great. Just ever-lovin’pea-pickin’ great. In LA some sixty thousand people–who really knows?–sleep on the sidewalks, in tents, cardboard boxes, sleeping bags, or not much of anything. Others live in their cars. The same in San Fran, Seattle, St. Louis. There being no bathrooms, they defecate as the urge hits, and where. What choice do they have? Some are junkies, others crazy, many just with no jobs or jobs that don’t pay enough for a room.

Meanwhile Biden sends billions to Ukraine, lots of billions, our billions, while America crumbles within. A corrupt, senescent, second-rate lawyer mysteriously empowered to bankrupt his own country to benefit a corrupt, dirtball country of no importance to America.

How is this possible? Why do Americans tolerate it?

Because they have no choice. Americans have no influence over their government except in things that do not matter to that government.

Recently my stepdaughter Natalia, Mexican, went to Austin to visit friends. She returned and pronounced America a truly odd country. All the houses were the same, so how could you find your way home at night? And there were lots of people, she said, living under bridges and on the sidewalks. This she thought strange. She had never seen such a thing in Mexico. In twenty years, neither have I.

Meanwhile Biden sends fortunes to Ukraine. How is this? Couldn’t we have an American President? Just once? Someone who cares about people in his own country? No prospect of this is in sight

In America there are people, lots of them, who don´t have enough to eat, or barely do. Appalachia, the Rust Belt, the rural Deep South. I wonder whether Biden has enough to eat. I wonder whether he cares that many of his citizens do not. No, come to think of it, I don’t wonder. But he cares, cares deeply, about Ukraine.

America crumbles, but Biden is going to rebuild Ukraine. Our trains look like something out of Turner Classic Movies. The passenger versions, across the continent, are nice, slow but appealing as period pieces. Chatanooga Choochoo, all that. They are also primitive and badly maintained. We have had four freight derailments in a month or so.

No, make that five. This morning we read of another, in Arizona. This is Third World, pushing Fourth. But Biden is going to do what it takes, for as long as it takes. For Ukraine.

I sometimes wonder whether Biden knows his own country, or anybody’s country. There is no evidence that he does. He wasn’t in the military, didn’t spend time hitchhiking through West Virginia, doesn’t know the blast of bigrig wind standing beside the highways of the Far West. He has never worked for a living, probably doesn’t know anyone who has. A political hack and second-rate lawyer, finishing seventy-sixth in a class of eighty-five in a mediocre law school after being caught cheating. But he will send as much of our money as it takes to Ukraine. Are you grateful yet?

The water is undrinkable in Flint, Michigan and Jackson, Mississippi and, I am told by my daughter who lives there, in New Orleans. What the hell kind of country allows this? Answer: A bushworld country, or one whose government is more interested in Ukraine than in its own people.

But, if I may, another word on trains. My wife and I were in China several years back, and rode their high-speed trains (180 miles per hour). They are startling, smooth, quiet, gorgeous. China has 24,000 miles of them. Their high-temperature superconducting maglev version, with carbon-composite body, at 360 miles per hour, is in late-stage development. America has not a nanometer, not an angstrom, of either. Coming back from Chengdu was like returning from a scifi movie.

But Biden sends billions to Ukraine, a little, little man eating prime rib in the White House while a couple of hundred thousand die for him in Ukraine. Anything for Ukraine. Anything at all.

Americans do not go to doctors because they cannot pay the bills. Unlike countries of the First World, America does not have decent national medical care. Do you suppose that Bident lacks medical care while he sends money, desperately needed by America, to Ukraine?

China–if I may again say that horrid word–has a for-profit economy. China spends its money on China. America spends its money on Ukraine. Go look at China. You will see highways going in, four-lane tunnels running twelve miles under mountains, brightly lighted. Airports, astonishing bridges. Phenomenal high-tension electrical lines. If you are interested in such things,China has a massive Five G installed base and, now, from Huawei, Five.five G.

Biden has just signed an $886 billion military bill. Add the VA, black programs of god-knows what size, and DOE, and you get well over a trillion. Most Americans, I read over and over, live maxed out on credit cards, don’t have five hundred dollars for an emergency. Biden, a draft-dodger during Vietnam and now a warrior President, probably is not maxed out on Visa. He probably has five hundred dollars, as his people do not. But he is not ignoring them. He is buying them aircraft carriers at thirteen billion per, and sending their money to Ukraine. Which do you need more, affordable dental care or an aircraft carrier?

Crime in America is at appalling levels. Tourists from normal countries must view visits as trips to a zoo. Education is abysmal and getting worse fast under Biden. Potholes come, bridges age, infrastructure rots. But Ukraine gets lots and lots of stuff free.

And now the banks collapse because of, well, backbreaking military giveaways to Lockheed-Martin, backbreaking national debt, backbreaking trade deficits, and unending wars. Now Ukraine demands fighter planes.

So let us thank the gods that we live in a democracy where the will of the people rules. Don’t ride the trains, drink the water, or need a doctor, and keep a comfortable pad handy because sidewalks are hard and get cold in winter. But we can be sure that Biden will send as much of our money to Ukraine as that dismal, trivial country wants. Are you grateful? Fred Reed


The Age of Fear:  A Graduation Message for Terrifying Times
With all that is crashing down upon us, from government-manipulated crises to the blowback arising from a society that has repeatedly prized technological expedience and mass-marketed values over self-ownership and individual sovereignty, those coming of age today are facing some of the greatest threats to freedom the world has ever witnessed.

It's downright frightening.

Young people will find themselves overtaxed, burdened with excessive college debt, and struggling to find worthwhile employment in a debt-ridden economy on the brink of implosion. Their privacy will be eviscerated by the surveillance state. They will be threatened, intimidated and beaten by militarized police. They will be the subjects of a military empire constantly waging war against shadowy enemies and government agents armed to the teeth ready and able to lock down the country at a moment's notice.

The Second Amendment
The Second Amendment was not limited to muskets any more than the First Amendment was limited to quill pens. The Amendments are technology proof.

The Second Amendment is about protecting the people from a tyrannical government. So it stands to reason that the citizens would need similar weaponry to that which a military soldier would have access to.

If people are only allowed to have slingshots while the soldier has a machine gun, you can see that the whole purpose of the Second Amendment would be completely emptied of its power. You’ve got to have the same resources.

I understand some of the concerns here—such as evil people doing evil things with weapons. Let me be so bold: we can survive evil people doing evil things, but what we cannot endure is a tyrannical government.

The Constitution was not designed to ensure our safety. It was written to protect our freedom. Warrior Poet Society

End Blasphemy End SatanismStop Satanism • Blaspheme Never Again !

The First Amendment protects against the infringement of religion and in so doing, it protects religion itself from blasphemers, heretics, iconoclasts, and apostates.

Satanism is NOT a legitimate religion and does not deserve any protections under the First Amendment.

Satanism exists solely as a repudiation of another religion, Christianity. Satan is NOT a god. He's a flunky. Any worship of Satan is merely a rude gesture AGAINST the God of Christianity. The entire act of worship in Satanism IS flinging an insult at the God of Christianity. As such, it is not the practice of a religion, but rather the practice of an insult.

Neurolinguistic Programming

You may already know that NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name is derived from three components that most affect our human experience: our neurology, our language, and our programming, or the way in which we have learned to model the world around us. The development of NLP began in the 1970s in California, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as an innovative approach to psychotherapy, communication, and personal development.

NLP studies the methods, validity and scope involved in what it means to be human on many different levels and dimensions. It focuses on fostering competence and flexibility of behavior, and involves analytical and strategic thought to understand what mental processes are behind human behavior.
