This mad world

(The following was written by Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of Gab.com, one of the first free-speech alternatives to Facebook, Twitter and their ilk. Torba lives somewhere in a rural area with his family due to the “tolerant” left’s incredibly relentless effort to take him out.)

How can you think straight and make rational decisions when each and every day you hear conflicting and contradictory information from “authoritative” sources? You can’t. No one can. That’s the whole point. That’s why the powers that be are doing this.

Welcome to the secular hell of a post-truth world.

We don’t need to wear masks. No wait, now we do. Hold up, now we need to wear two masks. We can stop wearing masks now. Surprise! We need to wear masks again. Actually, it turns out masks aren’t as effective as we thought.

We just need 15 days to slow the spread. Now we need a month. Maybe a year. Never mind, we didn’t need to lockdown at all, and it caused more harm than good.

Don’t take any vaccine that Donald Trump rushed to market. You didn’t get the vaccine? Are you nuts? The vaccine is highly effective. Oops, it looks like highly vaccinated Israel is having a major outbreak. Get the vaccine or lose your job.

Are you keeping up? This is the reality of living in a post-truth world.

They want us shell-shocked with rapidly changing information overload which leads to option-paralysis and fear. When people are in a state of fear coupled with option-paralysis they are very susceptible to manipulation and easy to control.

While we are all dazed and confused, they are destroying families, small businesses and entire nations. They are rigging elections. They are botching troop withdrawals to flood Western countries with refugees. The American border is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people.

They are buying up single-family homes and pricing you out of the market. They are printing endless money and inflating your currency.

They are transferring trillions of dollars in wealth to themselves and shutting up every last voice of dissent while doing it.

All the while, you worry about a virus that statistically you have a 98% chance of surviving with the immune system God gave you.

By design, it’s exhausting and impossible to keep up with. It’s meant to drain you mentally, physically, and spiritually so that you submit to their control. Don’t.

In the post-truth world, anything goes. Chaos reigns. Those who create the chaos manifest their means of control. Do not comply. Do not give them one inch. Stand your ground. Hold the line.

Shots & stupid stimulus

America’s IRS website tells me they mailed another Kung Flu stimulus check in my direction three days ago. I am vociferously opposed to this irresponsible nonsense of mailing cash willy-nilly all over the place with no regard for whether a person needs the money or not, whether a person has been financially harmed by the Kung Flu hysteria or not.

America is already drowning in debt, getting worse by the day. And it’s sending me money, a person who has not been financially harmed in any way whatsoever by the pandemic. It’s absurd and irresponsible.

The check in the mail is the third stimulus payment. I did not get the first one due to some bureaucratic reason, and I don’t care, but I did get the second one, which I cashed here. What else was I to do? Mail it back? Boy, that would have confused them. So I cashed it here in spite of my thinking it is unseemly.*

And if the third payment makes it through the Mexican mail system, I’ll cash it too. Perhaps I’ll use it to pay for the cataract surgery on my other eye, which is still pending, even though I am perfectly capable of using my own money for that.

Speaking of unseemly, the Gringos on our local internet forum are all a’twitter at the “free” money coming their way. They just cannot wait to get their hands on it.

Most are Democrats, of course. Unseemly, I tell you.


Speaking of the Kung Flu hysteria, I have decided not to get the vaccine, assuming it ever appears in my neck of the woods because Mexico’s distribution system is a poorly organized mess. I have decided to dodge the shot for a number of reasons.

One is that the pandemic is clearly winding down, as they always do. Two is that most cases are relatively mild. And very few people die. Yes, I am old, but I have no serious health issues and that’s almost always what kills people who catch the Kung Flu.

And also, the vaccine was a rush job. I am not an “anti-vaxxer.” I get the flu vaccine every year. I’ve received lots of vaccines. I welcome vaccines, but not rush jobs.

And when has a disease ever separated along political lines? In the United States, why are Democrat-run states trying to destroy private enterprise and Republican-run states much less so? Why are you far more free in Florida and South Dakota than you are in California, Michigan and Wisconsin? We’re living in a surreal world.

Something very strange is happening.

Looking only at Mexico with a population of about 130 million, to date, confirmed cases amount to 1.7 percent of the population. Deaths amount to 0.16 percent of the population. Those are really low numbers. And our pandemic is winding down noticeably.

What pushed me over the edge on the vaccine issue was a video I saw a few days ago, a speech delivered by Dr. Simone Gold who is also an attorney and founder of an organization named America’s Frontline Doctors. The video is about an hour long but well worth watching, especially if you’re still vaccine-free.

Back to the political aspect of the Kung Flu hysteria: Big Tech, mainstream media, showbiz, etc., have all gone to extremes to censor contrary opinions about the pandemic. Dr. Gold’s video was, of course, deleted from YouTube, but it’s available on Brighteon, one of a number of newer video channels dedicated to freedom of opinion.

To see Dr. Gold’s extremely impressive resumé, go here and scroll to the bottom. In spite of her sterling credentials, since she disagrees with the obligatory narrative surrounding the Kung Flu, she has been slandered by Big Tech and the leftist media.

And I don’t wear face masks either, except when it’s required to walk into a store. On the streets hereabouts, you can stroll mask-free with scant interference because Mexicans mind their own business. It’s just one more advantage of living in a free society.


* By cashed, I mean a money exchange gave me “real money,” i.e. Mexican pesos.

White House Van Helsing

Many people voted for Geriatric Joe for no other reason than they were tired of the uproar, the wailing, of the last four years. Plenty of voters, primarily the utterly clueless, just wanted things to settle down and return to “normal.”

And the last four years have indeed been a tumult. Here is why:

The American Elite in the forms of the Deep State, the “news” media, Big Tech, Hollywood, Big “Education” and the rest of their smug, blood-sucking sidekicks were fat and happy before Donald Trump sailed down that escalator in the Trump Tower with the European babe at his side to announce his presidential candidacy in 2015.

To a degree, Trump is also a member of the American Elite. This is due mostly to his money, but he is also a common-sense guy who cares about America, and he clearly saw how the nation was careening off-course, away from its founding principles.

The Elites never expected Trump to win. They thought he was a joke, that they had things firmly in hand, as always, and Hillary would keep them on course. But he did win, and I have a scenario for what followed. Think Bram Stoker.

The Elites are blood-suckers, vampires. Dracula, collectively.

Trump is Dracula’s nemesis, Professor Van Helsing. And he has spent four years pounding a stake into the Count’s heart. You’ve seen the movie. As the stake is driven into Dracula’s breast, he screams and writhes. That is the movie version. In real life, Dracula has been screaming and writhing for four years nonstop.

Enough people grew weary of the tumult to inspire them to vote against Trump, thinking that he was the problem when actually he was the solution.

With the assist of voters, Dracula smote Van Helsing aside, and is stepping out of the coffin. It’s not the positive finale of the book or movies. It’s the grim finale of real life.

Things will settle down, but don’t think that’s a good thing.

Dracula has bounded out of the crypt, full of himself, meaner than ever, and seeking revenge. Blood will flow. It gives him power. Protect your neck.

Quitting crack cocaine

I’ve created and deleted Facebook accounts four or five times over the years. I just deleted the most recent, and I hope I possess the moral fiber to stop altogether, to not be drawn back like a toothless, crackhead skank on a dark, rainy, ghetto street corner.

What prompted the latest deletion? The video above. It’s one of Tucker Carlson’s better videos, and that is saying a lot because his programs are superlative.

That so many otherwise intelligent people, and I’m referring to the politically conservative, stubbornly embrace their FB pages (or Twitter accounts) is disturbing, but I understand why. I was there. The crafty Big Tech giants have developed a powerful cocaine. The cocaine makes you go there, keeps you there, and then uses and abuses you till you’ve dropped a third of your body weight, and your teeth are brown and rotten. And you smell bad.

The cocaine makes you go there, keeps you there, and then uses and abuses you.

Having a Facebook or Twitter account is enabling them because their power is based solely on the massive number of accounts they possess. Without accounts, they would fade away like Myspace, Excite.com and Netscape Navigator, all of which still exist but are sad shadows of their former selves.

Tucker is discussing Big Tech power and censorship, and what it’s doing with and to us, all of which is more important now that they are corrupting the American electoral system while addressing congressional hearings with straight faces.

There are Facebook and Twitter alternatives that are growing significantly. For Twitter, go to Gab instead. For Facebook, go to MeWe. Parler is being hyped as an alternative to them both. I opened a Parler account, but find the daily sign-in process too ponderous.

Better to go to Gab in part due to its working smoothly but, more so, due to the outrageous attacks it has suffered since its birth in 2016. The propaganda campaign launched by Big Tech has been astounding. Currently, you cannot send money to Gab via PayPal, nor can you use a credit card. Gab cannot be monetized in any way because it’s all been blocked by Big Tech thugs. The only way to financially assist Gab is by personal check or Bitcoin.

The leftist attack on Gab extends to the personal accounts of its founder and CEO Andrew Torba, a devout Christian whose family credit cards have been canceled by Big Tech, all because Gab embraces free speech. You can say anything on Gab that is not illegal.

This drives the censors of Big Tech bonkers, and Gab grows bigger by the day, especially since this month’s election fraud. Due to the initial propaganda that Gab was a social media dedicated to Nazis and other unsavory sorts, Gab fairly recently made it possible to view the website before joining. That was not the case at the get-go, likely a bad decision.

I do little on Gab, but it’s good to provide moral support by opening an account, and to not provide moral support to internet mammoths like Facebook, though I know you will justify your staying put. It’s where all your buds are. Family too.

I have been there. But now I am clean. In short time, my weight will return to normal, my breath will smell fresher, and my eyes will clear up.
