IT IS NOT ENOUGH JUST TO CALL THIS STUFF INSANE. ACT, INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY,
while you still can.

Then think and Decide what You can and must do to help save this nation from a metastasizing cancer: THE LEFT.
This is not hyperbole.

Some can be dangerous to your mental health and general well-being...
like falsehoods, half-truths, distortions, omissions of actual INFORMATION (as produced by the main media)...
and like actual insane emanations (as produced by Leftists).
Meanwhile, I continue to offer alternatives and treatments, as with the following pot pourri.
schools and vouchers for public school students continue to make slow
progress - still blocked by the shameful Teachers Unions. See the WSJ
Editorial, April 23, 2021 about progress in Indiana.
- "How A Physicist Became A Climate Truth Teller", by Holman w. Jenkins, Jr. (in WSJ April 17-18, 2021, Opinion, pA11).
- How America deals with the great threat that China poses right now will determine whether we have WW III or not. See "Taiwan's Defense..." in WSJ April 23, 2021, pA16. See also "It's Not Bigotry To Tell The Truth About China", in WSJ April 2, 2021, Opinion, p A15.

any WOKE reader is starting to get chest pains by now, you may check
out as antidotes an article by Leonard Pitts, Jr. and an Editorial from
the Los Angeles Times, both published in The Day on April 11 and 15,
respectively. Why am I not surprised?
- Vaccinations for common -
and deadly - childhood illnesses SHOULD BE MANDATORY for all school -
aged students, subject only to legitimate medical prohibitions, and
with state - supervised Home Schooling as the only alternative. This is
a Public Health Issue! See "Lessons Learned....", in ctmirror.org, April 23, 2021.
why have I not addressed the directly related issues of POLICING IN
AMERICA... AND RESPECT FOR THE LAW AND THE BADGE? Because I'm
studying them. Stay Tuned.

WEDNESDAY, April 21, 2021LET ME BEND MY USUAL RULE...THAT IN A CRIMINAL CASE I WAIT FOR THE JURY TO TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED.
the threats of the mobs and their irresponsible mouthpieces were all
over the trial and all over the jury room. So I agree with Professor
But there is also something else. A crime requires
both the Actus Reus (the criminal act) And the Mens Rea (the criminal
Intent). Despite research, I am unsure as to whether conviction of
Murder 2 requires a conscious INTENT TO KILL or not under Minnesota
Law. I heard and read nothing throughout the coverage of this case that
would in any way support a finding of an Intent to Kill on the part of
the accused. Such a requirement if present would make a conviction for
Murder 2 impossible, in my opinion.
TUESDAY, April 20, 2021"STOP THE WORLD. I WANT TO GET OFF". But where would I go?
NCAA is a bully: Boys must be allowed on girls' teams
order to promote transgender ideology, the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) is discriminating against girls who play college
By policy, the NCAA says schools must fully embrace
the desire of any boy who claims to be a female to play on a girls'
team in college competition. It's irresponsible enough to allow a boy
to play on a girls' basketball or softball team, but the edict goes way
For example, according to the NCAA's policy handbook:
• Boys "should be able to use the locker room, shower, and toilet facilities" with girls.
• When traveling, boys "should be assigned to share hotels rooms" with girls.
“In all cases, teammates, coaches and all others in the school should
refer to transgender student-athletes (boys) by the student's preferred
(girl's) name." (Emphasis added.)
And if colleges and
universities don't comply with these anti-girls' sports mandates, their
states could be banned from hosting championships. Thus, the NCAA is
acting the role of a threatening playground bully.
As Duke law
professor and All-American track athlete Doriane Coleman, tennis
champion Martina Navratilova, and Olympic track gold medalist Sanya
Richards-Ross recently wrote: "The evidence is unequivocal that
starting in puberty, in every sport except sailing, shooting, and
riding, there will always be significant numbers of boys and men who
would beat the best girls and women in head-to-head competition."
NCAA has chosen to ignore pure logic and simple science when it comes
to the differences between male and female strength, agility, and
In short, the NCAA is systematically
destroying women's sports by allowing natural-born males to compete
against females. When the game is fixed, there is no incentive to
compete. And this is exactly what the NCAA is doing … fixing the game.

FOR THE "YUTES" OUT THERE, ALL OF YOU UP TO THE AGE OF 30:
How to make Lemonade out of Lemons.
when you were born, given the mediocre education you received in public
school, and given the Leftist political indoctrination you received in
"college" or on the streets in place of education, the following is a
reading and study guide that you can pursue during the isolation of
this Pandemic - which is not over yet by any means.
This effort will bring you up-to-date - and into the Family of American Citizens.
The Great Depression.
December 7, 1941.
The Battle of Stalingrad.
The Battle of the Bulge.
"82 Days On Okinawa", by Col. Art Shaw - and including why we used the Atom Bomb.
The Cold War and the Iron Curtain.
Viet Nam and the 1960's, as bad for America as was Slavery and the Civil War.
The Civil Rights Act and its progeny.
The stagflation of the 1970's.
The Presidency of Ronald Reagan: "Three Days In Moscow", by Bret Baier. The fall of the Iron Curtain.
The corruption of generations of Blacks by the Democratic Party. "A Dream Derailed", by Rev. Bill Owens.
'Lest We Forget: "A Beginner's Guide To America", by Roya Hakakian.
You can take over from here...unless you have been Woke into a Coma.
WELL, WE STILL HAVE "...APPLE PIE".
What a Shame.
SECRETARY POMPEO IS EXACTLY RIGHT - AGAIN.
Can even Biden stomach this?
FRIDAY and SATURDAY, April 16 and 17, 2021RR#1
"Where are you going?" Where are we all going, as a nation and as individuals?
It would help to know where we are now.
1) Biden and the Leftists and their far-out positions that should cost them dearly in the next elections...
if the electorate is Awake and not Woke.
will also help - and would be obligatory - for the GOP to decide Now
who they are and what they stand for. Confusion will produce
defeat in 2022, in 2024 and for a long time thereafter.)
Immigration, open borders without consideration of consequences except as relates to votes.
Economics: short-term national insecurity and long-term bankruptcy.
Equality confused with "Equity", the latter a dismal failure in all Marxist societies.
"Racism", the only diagnosis and only treatment recognized by the most racist among us...the Black "leaders" and their lemmings.
Anti-Religion and Anti-Spirituality and Anti-Morality. God promised no more Floods. But there are other ways....
Politicians : forget about public service, only self-service. Did you
ever consider how political leaders like Pelosi can command the
obedience of scores of individually elected office-holders regarding
many positions that they and their individual electorate must loath?
Self-service, that's how.
3) The arrogance of Bureaucrats, the
unelected and permanent Administrative "branch" of government. Think
FBI and CIA, which became heavily politicized in recent years, contrary
to their sworn role.
4) Our national Military, sworn to protect
and defend the nation - as a whole, and not merely a current and
temporary part of it...now being politicized and indoctrinated. That
produces and "banana republic". Beware!
5) A substantial
minority of the Black minority in this country who appear to have taken
control of the rest of their race here, akin to the Fundamentalists who
have de-facto control of their moderate brethren in Muslim countries,
with long-term grave consequences. Guaranteed, unless overcome, to reawaken a long-dormant antipathy of the rest of Americans toward them.
6) Law Enforcement / The Police. Calls for their replacement by social workers is Stupid In The Extreme!
they need clearer rules of engagement and training. And Yes, THEIR ROLE
AND THEIR BADGE IN OUR SOCIETY REQUIRE RESPECT AND OBEDIENCE WHEN
DETAINED. The loss of that respect and obedience on the part of too
many continues to produce tragic and avoidable consequences.
7) The Media. Journalism
is dead in large swaths of our media in recent decades, replaced by
half-truth's, lies, suppression - anything that will support their
current political position. That is NOT what Amendment 1 protects!
The "Business Community". What is that? Self-Service in the Extreme,
that's what. Whatever works for them, beginning with the Industrial
Revolution and its inhumane working conditions, through World Wars
working for both sides, and then any wars that will buy their
armaments, through massive dealings with our national adversaries....
works FOR THEM. Don't expect any more or any different. Witness the
most recent actions of big business in their amorphous political
positions and in negating the people's rights to Freedom of Speech.
The Teaching Profession. Always hamstrung by a Feudal control structure
and then by smothering Unions, these good people have lost - given up -
their professionalism. This is especially true at the college level,
which too many of them see as opportunity for control vs. quest for
knowledge in an open forum. SHAME ON YOU!
10) The Health Care
Professions, still reliable individually but increasingly suspect in
the aggregate of massive business interests - with their increasing
Control over their physicians and other "providers", bought, paid for
and subject to discharge almost at will. Beware!
Prudence. The Practice of Law is both a Profession and very much a
business. That's OK. But what is not OK is if/when the Judiciary
becomes identified with one political party or another, one political /
contested point of view or another. That is NOT OK.
Science...and "science". Gone are the days when Louis Pasteur, Robert
Koch and so many Greats beginning in antiquity could make their
discoveries essentially without need for massive support. Financial
support and expensive laboratories have their tolls. Although Science
can still generally be trusted, an inquiring eye can detect issues in
the science of Covid-19 and especially in the science of "Global
"Let the buyer beware".
13) Religion. Organized
Religion, as distinguished from Spirituality. Most of us are spiritual
beings at our core - either during life or at the moment of death..."Thank God I Died An Atheist".
But organized Religion can be another matter. See Roman Catholicism. A
Great and Good Religion, but not one given to introspection. And as a
result in recent decades, the Church now worries about avoiding a
"schism" - while it fails to recognize that it has been living a schism
with a large part of its Laity ("the Body of the Church") since Vatican
ll, "Humanae Vitae", and their progeny. Since then, church and mass
attendance has gone from 70% to below 20%. The Magisterium can do
Better than that without doing violence to the foundational Truths of
And where does that leave John Q Public? With a Grave Responsibility, that's where.
"As we practised in typing class:
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY".

WHAT IS GASLIGHTING?
term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a
victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play Gas Light,
and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. In the story, the
husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by
manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she
is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she
points out these changes. The play's title alludes to how the abusive
husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending
nothing has changed, in an effort to make his wife doubt her own
perceptions. The wife repeatedly asks her husband to confirm her
perceptions about the dimming lights, but in defiance of reality, he
keeps insisting that the lights are the same and instead it is she who
is going insane. Today, we are living in a perpetual state of
gaslighting. The reality that what we are being told by the media is at
complete odds with what we are seeing with our own two eyes. And when
we question the false reality that we are being presented, or we claim
that what we see is that actual reality, we are vilified as racist or
bigots or just plain crazy. You’re not racist. You’re not crazy. You’re
New York State has twice as many deaths from
Covid-19 than any other state, and New York has accounted for one fifth
of all Covid-19 deaths, but we are told that New York Governor Andrew
Cuomo has handled the pandemic better than any other governor. But if
we support policies of Governors whose states had only a fraction of
the infections and deaths as New York, we’re called anti-science and
want people to die. So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being
We see mobs of people looting stores, smashing
windows, setting cars on fire and burning down buildings, but we are
told that these demonstrations are peaceful protests, and when we call
this destruction of our cities, riots, we are called racists. So, we
ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.
the major problem destroying many inner-cities is crime; murder, gang
violence, drug dealing, drive-by shootings, armed robbery, but we are
told that it is not crime, but the police that are the problem in the
inner-cities. We are told we must defund the police and remove law
enforcement from crime-riddled cities to make them safer But if we
advocate for more policing in cities overrun by crime, we are accused
of being white supremacists and racists. So, we ask ourselves, am I
crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.
The United States of
America accepts more immigrants than any other country in the world.
The vast majority of the immigrants are “people of color”, and these
immigrants are enjoying freedom and economic opportunity not available
to them in their country of origin, but we are told that the United
States is the most racist and oppressive country on the planet, and if
we disagree, we are called racist and xenophobic So, we ask ourselves,
am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.
are the most prosperous countries in the world. The standard of living
is the highest in capitalist countries. We see more poor people move up
the economic ladder to the middle and even the wealthy class through
their effort and ability in capitalist countries than any other
economic system in the world, but we are told capitalism is an
oppressive system designed to keep people down. So, we ask ourselves,
am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.
killed over 100 million people in the 20th century. Communist countries
strip their citizens of basic human rights, dictate every aspect of
their lives, treat their citizens as slaves, and drive their economies
into the ground, but we are told that Communism is the fairest, most
equitable, freest, and most prosperous economic system in the world.
So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.
most egregious example of gaslighting is the concept of “white
fragility”. You spend your life trying to be a good person, trying to
treat people fairly and with respect. You disavow racism and bigotry in
all its forms. You judge people solely on the content of their
character and not by the color of their skin. You don’t discriminate
based on race or ethnicity. But you are told you are a racist, not
because of something you did or said, but solely because of the color
of your skin. You know instinctively that charging someone with racism
because of their skin color is itself racist. You know that you are not
racist, so you defend yourself and your character, but you are told
that your defense of yourself is proof of your racism. So, we ask
ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.
has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in
American politics. It is the exact opposite of what our political
system was meant to be. It deals in lies and psychological coercion,
and not the truth and intellectual discourse. If you ever ask yourself
if you’re crazy, you are not. Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask
themselves if they’re crazy. So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your
heart. Trust your eyes over what you are told. Never listen to the
people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not, you’re

sent this to you because, if you seriously think about the above, you
will understand what is being done to us on a daily basis from many
directions. I do not care about your political party
affiliation. Just think through what you are being told.
Don't listen with a deaf ear, or see with a blind eye. Question
everything, even things from people who you think you can trust.
Question why you are being told whatever, by whomever. Question
their motives. Question who benefits. Question if there is a hidden
agenda behind the propaganda. Question, Question, Question.
Then do your own research, and use some of your own critical thinking
skills to get to the truth. Listen with your heart and with your

ONLY REFRESHNG AND TRUE...THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR EACH OF US
WHO ARE SUBJECT TO "CANCEL CULTURE" BECAUSE OF OUR BELIEFS, TO COME OUT
OUR CLOSET -
TO DEMAND OUR RIGHTS AND TO SPEAK THE TRUTH.
Human history is full of stories of people who did not do so...and who disappeared.
This is our moment. This is our fight. This is our weapon against Totalitarianism rising against us.
MONDAY, April 12, 2021(I must stifle myself;..). To all who voted for Biden and the Leftists: THIS IS WHAT YOU VOTED FOR. SATISFIED?

WHAT'S NOT TO DISLIKE? WHAT'S NOT TO DESPISE?

politically as well as mentally competent...by resisting a collapse to
the Leftists. But No.
And so...the following are actions taken
within these first 100 days that are putting our nation in serious and
So: WHAT'S NOT TO DISLIKE? WHAT'S NOT TO DESPISE?
- Trillions of dollars of planned spending
without any hope of a balanced budget, while America's debt already
exceeds our entire domestic product. Just print more money. A scenario
for Inflation and recession: "stagflation", especially in context with
the effects of the Pandemic.
- Interference with pipe lines being built - and our relationship with Canada.
- The Immigration Crisis, both now and for years to come. And our relationship with Mexico.
proper investigation of the 2020 national elections, with most of over
70 million citizens suspecting the worst - and with an (*) on Biden.
- Attacks on legitimate efforts to improve election laws, as in Georgia.
- Perpetuation of pro-Abortion actions despite the anti-abortion position of over 70% of our population.
to undermine the structure and function of the Supreme Court, the only
national governmental body that so far enjoys the respect and support
of the populace.
- The undermining of legitimate claims of some
adults to Transgender needs by applying related treatments to
Children...yet another Abomination.
- Efforts to undermine both organized Religions and Faith itself.
legitimate concerns regarding "Gun Control" (ie. proper background
checks) with threats of confiscation, ignoring Amendment ll.
- "Cancel Culture", encouraged and played out in public and private and business and educational domains, ignoring Amendment l.
the Big Lie that "White Racism" is rampant and inbred, while it is the
Black "leaders", Democratic pols and their so stupid followers who are
plying their "Black Racism"...and trying to equate "Equality" with
"Equity and proposing "reparations". Crazy and self-destructive.
the International stage: pushing Russia unnecessarily into
counter-actions; ignoring North Korea; cow-towing to Iran; allowing
Afghanistan - once again - to fall into Fundamentalist hands; allowing
China - our greatest adversary - to strut against Taiwan and into the
South China open seas and into the Arctic - in effect encouraging open
combat; allowing our Military to be politicized.

See the interview between Mark Levin and Candace Owens, Saturday April 3, 2021 on the show "Life, Liberty and Levin"
have been defining the greatest Racist group in America, the "Black
Community" as it is called, and their "leaders" for many years. This is
not the majority of good, solid Black friends such as I have had for
decades. It is a loud and cynical cabal of self-serving traitors to
their race followed by stupid sheep who by now should know better. And
perhaps that vast majority do know better. But, perhaps like the vast
majority of moderate Muslims cowed by the crazy Fundamentalists in
their midst, they are afraid to speak out.
But Speak Out They Must if they want to join the American family of other good people who are waiting for them to come to their senses.
WEALTH: THE DISEASE.
See the Netflix documentary entitled "The College Admissions Scandal".
We don't have to ask whether this infirmity is genetic. It is.
We don't have to ask whether it can be caught by healthy normal persons who come into Wealth. It can.
It is chronic and progressive.
It is de-moralizing, if the victim ever had morals to begin with.
One constant symptom is a lust for Power.
It is contagious for close contacts, especially for politicians.
Innate Immunity is a rarity, but does exist.
It is not new, and has existed throughout the history of mankind.
The only cure, apart from total divestment, is Death.
More recent Examples beyond the above documentary include:
Jesus: "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than
for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
- the wholesale treachery practiced by some of our greatest companies during WW ll in their dealings with Nazi Germany;
declared by "Engine Charlie Wilson" in the 1950's: "The Business of
America is Business"...nothing else, including a living wage and safe
working conditions for its workers without a fight;
pandemic of Billionaires and the relative paucity of their charitable
work in the face of massive world - wide famine and disease;
- the overriding preference for dealing with America's adversaries for profit, regardless of effect on America.
- the cowardly penchant for siding with any currently "popular" trend if it will benefit 'business".
LIFE, AND THE KIND OF LIFE YOU HAVE, IS MAINLY CHOICES.
IT NEVER ENDS: THE TOTALITARIAN MARCH.
Neither do I.
