Tai Lopez caught up: “Curb Your Self-Help Guru”

Posted from a chatter.

I called Tai a fancy talker.

The speculation around Tai Lopez

It’s already been rumored and Internet researchers (for lack of a better term) have allegedly exposed Tai Lopez in the past. “The cars he claims to own are leased,” or simply not his. The house is not his either, etc. Here’s a breakdown video:

00:54 Specific video production as in Here in My Garage lamborghini
04:18 The mechanism is done like when he mentions his mentors
05:14 Tai Lopez anticipates where the viewers’ mind is at
05:42 Tai Lopez utilizes a real disqualifier in his products
07:24 Tai Lopez repeats the call to action multiple times

And this next one, I’m not sure if it counts as a “confession,” but it’s interesting to speculate if it is scripted or not. Which I’d assume it isn’t (hope it isn’t). I link this one to post a balance.

Lengthier debate:

A West Virginia area Shelter-in-place lifted: Chemical Plant Explosion

KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A shelter-in-place order has been lifted, nearly four and a half hours after an explosion at the Chemours plant along W. Dupont Ave. in Belle.

The shelter in place was lifted about 2:30 Wednesday morning.

Rt. 60 has reopened between Campbells Creek and the Chelyan Bridge.

Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper said three people were transported to the hospital, while a fourth person took himself to seek treatment. Two of the people transported were from inside the plant. The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time. — WSAZ

Seems this neck of the woods is plagued with tragedy. Here’s another incident:

(2014) WV Gov. Declares State Of Emergency For Nine Counties After Chemical Leak

According to a news release, the leak happened at Freedom Industries in Charleston. The leaked product is 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol, which is used in the froth flotation process of coal washing and preparation.

The chemical is believed to have leaked into the Elk River.

West Virginia American Water believes the material is hazardous, but is not lethal in it’s current form.

FEMA has been contacted to bring clean water into the area.

Officials describe the smell as something similar to liquorice.

There is no estimated time when this will be repaired, according to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. The State of Emergency will be in place until Department of Health and Human Reasources, Department of Environmental Protection and West Virginia American Water determine the water is safe. — WOUB

Hope you’re safe, West Virginians!


Hack, hack, hack: HACK THE PLANET!

Article via chatter in #development.

“If there are potential criminal (and civil) consequences for violating a computerized system’s usage policy, that would empower the owners of such systems to prohibit bona fide security research and to silence researchers from disclosing any vulnerabilities they find in those systems,” said Pfefferkorn. “Even inadvertently coloring outside the lines of a set of bug bounty rules could expose a researcher to liability.” — Tech Crunch

I’m slightly confused at how it got this far. Mainly because I guess I – and – others I know have ignored it and the companies welcoming it have ignored it. I suppose this is the beauty of US “hacking” laws and what companies and individuals can agree on.

I could say, “you can hack my network from afar for pen testing purposes,” and it’d be legal because persmission was given. Not to mention the fact of you using “my” home network, I can see whatever you do – and if one were to consider this a privacy invasion they should use all available tools to shield their activity.

But we also have to understand tampering, even in the slightest or in its fullest shouldn’t constitute an “arrest” simply because we can fall on “who was a victim of this,” and if there were no victim(s) then there are clearly zero crimes. However, you’d wanna take into consideration just what was seen during that access, trade secrets, unreleased IP, etc, it’s all questionable and relative, but… I never, ever want hacking to be considered bad.

Because it’s not all bad. It’s easy to tell who was malicious and who was not. …… with that being said, I guess the court ruling on it may help clarify and update the language to reflect today’s society regarding electronics/technology and hacking.

Washington Post: In a possible first, San Francisco charges an officer with homicide over fatal on-duty shooting


November 24, 2020 at 5:12 p.m. EST
A former police officer was charged with manslaughter by the San Francisco district attorney’s office Monday, three years after he fatally shot Kita O’Neil during an alleged carjacking incident.


District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced that his office had filed homicide charges against former San Francisco Police Department officer Christopher Samayoa, a decision that appears to be the city’s first homicide prosecution against a law enforcement officer who has killed someone while on duty.


Samayoa faces charges of voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, assault with a semiautomatic weapon, assault by a police officer and discharge of a firearm with gross negligence, the district attorney’s office said Monday.

Boudin, a liberal former public defender, was elected last year on a platform of criminal justice reform and promised a tougher stance on law enforcement accountability.

No, really: “What NO ONE is Saying About The Lockdowns”

Despite your opinions on COVID itself, it is real, but the results of lockdowns and business shutdowns are going to get more real if these “lockdowns” aren’t handled a bit more appropriately.
Businesses are clearly allowed to reject would-be patrons for not wearing masks, but remember you could be rejecting someone with medical issues (and I don’t wanna hear “have someone go out for them,” because I’ve already disputed this), and making it extremely difficult for them to do what they need to do or help others. Those same businesses may eventually have to face terrible consequences later for these rejections.
Telling businesses–correction: threatening to terminate business licenses is nothing less than extortion and complete martial law at its finest and all business owners should act accordingly in telling the state to go screw itself.
“Now those advocating for lockdowns have seen the destruction and death that those policies have wrought this year and we are living through that right now. Not only are people being deprived of their livelihoods and forced into grinding poverty as a direct result of these shutdowns, but now the undeniable truth is that if you are advocating for lockdowns, you are advocating for some portion of the population to be consigned to death.”

In 2006, a 15-year-old high school student from Albuquerque, New Mexico won third place in the Intel science and engineering fair for her project on slowing the spread of an infectious pathogen during a pandemic emergency. Using a computer simulation that she developed with the help of her father, she argued that in order to slow the spread of the disease, governments should implement school shutdowns, keep kids at home and enforce social distancing.

Incredibly, that third place high school science fair project can be tied directly to the lockdown policies being implemented by governments around the world today. You see, that father that she developed her computer simulation with was no average doting dad, but a senior researcher at Sandia National Laboratories who at that time was working on pandemic emergency response plans for the US Department of Homeland Security. His proposal to implement school shutdowns and, if need be, workplace shutdowns in the event of a pandemic emergency was developed at least in part in response to his daughter’s high school project.

Now those advocating for lockdowns have seen the destruction and death that those policies have wrought this year and we are living through that right now. Not only are people being deprived of their livelihoods and forced into grinding poverty as a direct result of these shutdowns, but now the undeniable truth is that if you are advocating for lockdowns, you are advocating for some portion of the population to be consigned to death.

This is no longer debatable. It is even openly admitted—although months too late by the World Health Organization.

DAVID NABARRO: I want to say it again: we in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as a primary means of control of this virus. [. . .] We may well have a doubling of world poverty by early next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition because children are not getting meals at school and their parents and poor families are not able to afford it.

This is a terrible, ghastly global catastrophe, actually. And so we really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method. Develop better systems for doing it. Work together and learn from each other. But remember, lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never, ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.

This is the point at which, no doubt, I’ll be expected to produce the data to back up the non-controversial observation that lockdowns kill, even though that data will do precisely nothing to penetrate the consciousness of those who have already decided that they occupy the moral high ground for advocating locking billions of people around the globe as prisoners inside their own homes. But persevere I will.

I’ll point, for example, to the letter signed by hundreds of doctors calling the lockdowns themselves a “mass casualty incident” and exhorting politicians to end the shutdowns.

I’ll point to the research that shows that thousands of people will die because of delays to cancer surgery treatments as a result of the medical shutdowns.

I’ll point to the research of the Well-Being Trust showing that 75,000 Americans are expected to die deaths of despair—including alcohol and drug misuse and suicide—this year alone as a result of the lockdowns.

I will point to the research of The Lancet showing that 265 million people are expected to be thrown into severe food insecurity as a result of these lockdowns.

I will even point to the research showing 125,000 children are expected to die from malnutrition as a result of these lockdowns.

But, as I say, none of these deaths will matter to those who have already decided that they are right and virtuous for advocating locking vast swathes of the human population inside their own homes to starve to death in the name of slowing the spread of a disease that even the epidemiologists who have been wrong about everything this year tell us will kill less than one percent of the infected.

Yes, slowing the spread, not stopping the spread. This was never about stopping a pandemic. Even the lockdown advocates never advocated that. But somehow that has been forgotten and “15 days to flatten the curve” has turned into a never-ending carte blanche for the biosecurity state to implement any number of draconian policies on its population, any number of policies on the checklist of the would-be dictator. Not only locking people inside their own homes, but constant surveillance of the population through the contact tracing and tracking apps that are increasingly being implemented around the globe, and, inevitably, the proposals for mandating the experimental vaccines which agents of the state will forcibly inject into people against their will.

This is not acceptable.

We cannot allow this to stand.

If we forsake this, our most basic right—the right to step foot outside of our own homes—then we forsake our humanity itself. An important part of what makes us human is being taken away from us in the name of stopping the spread of COVID-19.

But there is good news for those who have managed to retain their sanity in the time of insanity. We do not need a complicated plan in order to subvert this agenda. We do not need special deputization or to ask permission from the government. We do not need to join any particular political party or even any particular protest movement.

All we have to do is disobey these unlawful “orders.”

If you have managed to retain your sanity during this time of widespread insanity, I applaud you and wish to assure you that you are not alone. Many, many people all around the world are defying orders. They are protesting against these lockdowns. They are standing up. They are disobeying.

But of course the corporate controlled press don’t want you to know that disobedience is an option on the table and they will not report on this. But disobedience is an option. Open your business. Leave your home. Do not ask for permission. Disobey.

To those who are still advocating for lockdowns, I encourage you to do so to the face of those parents who have lost their teenage children due to suicide as a direct result of the shutdowns and tell them that their child’s death doesn’t matter because it wasn’t listed as being due to COVID-19. Or do so to the face of the tens of thousands of others who have already lost loved ones as a direct result of these shutdown or the hundreds of thousands more who will die as long as these lockdowns endure.

If you are advocating for lockdowns, you are complicit in tearing families apart. You are complicit in inflicting untold suffering on millions of people around the world. You are complicit in casting the poorest and most vulnerable in our societies into even further grinding poverty. You are complicit in murder.

A line is being crossed right now. Which side of history are you on? Make your decision now and make it wisely, because your actions during these times will not be forgotten.

You have been warned.

Found on Twitter: “Nazi See” (Twitter taking on government)

Captured from Twitter.

More important to note

Twitter is now directly taking on the tweets of government officials. What’s important to note here is that Twitter of all “organizations” is making a clear stance in not giving two shits who fails to meet their standards. This is an very important to note:

  1. People want to object the government in certain ways, but rarely do (in public…?)
  2. People (sometimes including myself) say government officials (including POTUS) shouldn’t be silenced on “social” platforms
    1. Except these social platforms are privately owned, e.g., you’re stepping into their house
  3. People are proactively opposing Twitter and Facebook’s stance on banning government officials, leading to sometimes backing up the government even when they’re wrong.

I feel platforms taking control of their content is shedding (not new) light on how society is reacting to information, whether it’s true or false.

Not going live enough: Here’s a boring video

I have made a few attempts with going live more often, but not every day yet. Here’s the latest from my Twitch channel.

Joe Rogan real-time fact-checks Alex Jones: It goes well.

It took about three days to consume the entire video, given it’s 3 hours and it’s packed with many topics. So, to personally consume all of it safely I usually pause, do some research, attend to other tasks, then come back… which again, with 3 hours worth of film usually takes around 3 days for me to completely finish.

Rogan made a suggestion (which I agree with) to Alex Jones saying he needs a journalist by his side on air (paraphrasing) to real-time fact-check. For those unaware, I usually checkout Jones’ material once in awhile, because he does in fact turn out to be right on a lot of things. So I’m not going to ignore this source. It’s pretty bad to ignore any source–consume all you can! If you don’t, it’d be difficult to tell what’s true and false… and clearly studies (scientific ones at that) can be performed to determine the truth as well.

Anywho, I hope you enjoy the clip, because it did provide some new information for me and some good laughs.
