Monday was another crazy day. Debbie Dingell was appointed as Speaker of the House Pro tempore, because Nancy Pelosi failed to show up for work to vote on her own resolution to invoke the 25th Amendment against Trump, which was voted down by the Republicans. The vote will be tried again Tuesday, followed by a separate vote on Wednesday to impeach him.
This followed Pelosi’s string of incoherent and inflammatory statements over the past few days. On Friday, she requested reassurances from Joint Chiefs Chair, Gen Mark Milley that an “unstable” Trump would be prevented from launching a nuclear weapon. On Saturday, during an online meeting with constituents in San Francisco, she claimed the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday had chosen their “whiteness over democracy.” On Sunday, during her appearance on 60 Minutes, she told Leslie Stahl that Trump needed to “pay a price” for inciting an insurrection.
Then, Facebook announced that it would be removing all posts containing the “Stop the Steal” hashtag, for the “safety” of their users.
In addition to all of the social media companies who have banned Trump since last Wednesday, he was de-platformed by his mass email service (which happened to me twice in 2019) and he was de-banked by both Stripe, the online payment processor and by Deutsche Bank, his primary lender for the past two decades.
Then, the PGA of America Board of Directors voted to terminate their agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, NJ according to an announcement from PGA of America President Jim Richerson
“It has become clear that conducting the PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand, it would put at risk the PGA’s ability to deliver our many programs, and sustain the longevity of our mission.” Richerson added sadistically, “It was a decision made to ensure that PGA of America and the PGA Professionals can continue to lead and grow our great game for decades to come.”
Then, for several hours, the State Department website indicated that the Trump Presidency had ended on January 11th. The “disgruntled” employee who altered the website is now looking at 10 years in prison for defacing Federal Property.
Then, Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Chad Wolf resigned. In a letter to the department, Wolf said he was resigning due to the “ongoing and meritless court rulings regarding the validity of my authority as acting secretary”, which he said was diverting attention and resources away from the department during the “critical time of a transition of power”.
Then, Trump declared a state of emergency in the District of Columbia until the 24th of January.
Throughout our lives, Americans have been told to be paranoid of the Russians or al Qaeda. We were convinced to spend trillions of dollars for the greatest military on Earth. We are now on the brink of being taken over by simple PsyOps and blackmail from our largest trading partner. Worst of all, 50% of the populace think it’s great!
In shades of things to come, people on Joe Biden’s NASA transition team urged that the United States start what could be the biggest transfer of technology ever to China. The giveaway could result in the Chinese military dominating space and along with it, world affairs. “Trying to exclude them, I think, is a failing strategy,” said Pam Melroy, a former astronaut and potential next administrator of NASA, referring to the Chinese. “It is very important that we engage.”

The producer of the film ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon’, Bart Sibrel joins Sean Kerrigan to discuss Fake News, the Apollo Moon missions, SpaceX and YouTube’s double standard regarding censorship and demonetization.
Sibrel believes that Alex Jones, for example was “taken down” to confer him with “Street Cred” to his millions of fans, in order to be trotted out to promote a big lie later – soon.
YouTube hates Sibrel’s truth-telling about the Lunar Landings and they demonetize his videos. Meanwhile, they allow incredible violence and other violations of purported “Community Guidelines” by big corporate accounts.
Sibrel easily demonstrates how the photographs of the Lunar surface are fake because the shadows are pointing in different directions. This would not be possible on the Moon, due to the Sun being the only light source and the light being unidirectional. This is to say nothing about NASA’s recent admissions that they don’t have the technology to protect Astronauts from the enormous radiation of the Van Allen Belts.
Sibrel continues his analysis of motion picture evidence and uses deductive reasoning to show how NASA’s claims that they destroyed their hardware and telemetry data as a basis for why they’ve lost the ability to accomplish that mission today is nonsensical. There is no precedent in history for people obliterating their latest technological achievement. He utterly squashes any consideration that Apollo completed manned missions to the Moon using 1960s technology.
Kerrigan asks him what he thinks of SpaceX and Sibrel says it’s fake and that it’s a front for the Intelligence Community and that Elon Musk is a cardboard cut-out phony. SpaceX’s hallmark vertical landing rockets are suspect; they unnecessarily waste fuel. The multiple vertical landing attempts finally succeeded in 2017 (if that footage is to be believed and Sean has his doubts about it) but even this just proves that NASA did not achieve vertical landing rockets until 50 years after they’d originally alleged this had been achieved.
As to Musk’s plans to conduct a manned mission to Mars in 2024, Sibrel says he wishes he could bet big money against the likelihood of this ever happening (“I could become a trillionaire with one dollar!”).
Sibrel believes that high profile people, like Elon Musk, Alex Jones and Joe Rogan are being told what they can and cannot say. Rogan used to be one of the most well-known Moon Landing skeptics but now he claims he’s “not smart enough” to know for sure. In Sibrel’s opinion, once you understand why the Moon Landings weren’t real, there’s no turning back and that Rogan was either threatened or bribed or blackmailed.
In addition, Sibrel believes that what’s going on with Alex Jones is that he might be “a CIA agent” who’s being groomed now to get everybody to believe one particular lie and that once Jones has been publicly “rehabilitated” he will be deployed upon the populace to do just that. Jones has never voiced any doubt about the official story of the Moon Landings, which he believes is very telling.
He says the Moon Landings are something that, if the truth were revealed to the public at large, it would take down the Main Stream Media.
However, Sibrel explains, “Bob Dylan didn’t say ‘Money talks.’ He said, ‘Money screams,'” and that if he were offered the right price, even he would definitely consider lying about the Moon Landings.
Running Time: 44 min
Americans mobilise to keep the Internet. This Bill will have adverse effects on Australian Internet users
This is the last 24 hours to do anything to stop CISA, the biggest mass surveillance bill since the Patriot Act. We’re running out of time to save what freedom we have left on the Internet.
Fortunately, we have a plan to get the job done. Recent research shows that the best way to get senators’ attention is by tweeting at them because it holds them publicly accountable — so we built a tool that makes it easier than ever before to rain down a fiery storm of tweets on the Senate.
CISA would, for the first time, create an explicit online data sharing and prosecution agreement between companies and the government. Seven federal agencies and the FBI can use that data for many purposes, including building cases around suspicion of small crimes, like fake id’s. The lobbyists behind CISA claim it would help cybersecurity, but this bill isn’t written so they only get cyberthreat indicators. This bill is much, much more than just that, and no independent expert thinks it would do anything to make us more secure.
We need about a dozen more senators to understand that CISA is not what they’ve been told by the lobbyists. Some tech companies, like Apple and Twitter, have already begun calling on senators to oppose CISA for privacy reasons, and everyone outside of the D.C. bubble already thinks this is a horrible, privacy-destroying bill. We need to break through the lobbyist buzz and make sure our senators know that CISA is actually going to make the Internet less safe and less secure.
We’ve been hammering the Senate with opposition to CISA, but the companies that are lobbying for immunity have more connections and give more money to politicians. We just learned that Facebook is using their connections on the Hill to secretly lobby for CISA while trying to appear indifferent publicly.
It only takes 10 or so tweets on a topic for a Senate office to notice, and most offices say they factor in tweets when deciding how to vote on bills. Many offices seem to be up in the air on CISA right now, with tech companies and other industries pulling them in opposite directions. If we can show them that their constituents stand solidly against CISA, we have a shot at securing the votes we need to stop this from passing.
Senators want to be able to say they did something for “cybersecurity,” but if they think the Internet is up in arms they won’t want to be on the wrong side. Right now the companies that want immunity have more traction than Internet users who want their privacy respected because of their money and corrupt lobbying practices.
Companies like Comcast, Facebook, and Bank of America are lobbying Congress to pass CISA so they can do whatever they want with your data. These companies want CISA for the legal immunity, and the Intelligence community wants it to get more data on people’s Internet communications. This bill would give more power to institutions that already have way too much power while taking away the basic rights of ordinary people who have already had so much taken from them.
We’ve come so far already in this fight against CISA. Congress has tried to pass legislation like this over and over and each time we’ve been able to beat it back because of people like you.
Now, we need to make this the death blow to CISA today.
We hope you’ll stand with us on the right side of history, and help fight this bill before it’s too late.
Shameful: @Facebook secretly backing Senate’s zombie #CISA surveillance bill while publicly pretending to oppose it. https://boingboing.net/2015/10/24/petition-facebook-betrayed-us.html …

P.S. Check this out — it’s not just us that’s been on Facebook for secretly lobbying for CISA — even Edward Snowden tweeted about our campaign over the weekend.
Earth will be in line for small fragments of comet Ison Friday as it passes through the solar system. This excellent weather bulletin takes in Earth and Mars with up to date satellite photos sent from NASA satellites.
