Thought for the day

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." -- Buckminster Fuller

The Democrats used the pandemic to cover up their socialist agenda. But now it seems that other more radical liberals, such as Governor Gavin Newsom, are refusing to let go.

Newsom has a bill on his desk that would cripple the medical field in California. The bill essentially forces doctors to accept the medical opinion of the state. Any deviation from the published narrative would immediately keep them from being able to practice medicine in the state.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is back in the news again with allegations of thuggery and lying to a judge.

Under the microscope is an infuriating scheme that involves the search and seizure of massive amounts of private money and assets from random safety deposit boxes last year in Beverly Hills. 

Even for those who have studied the FBI over the years, this latest episode by the Bureau appears to be little more than organized thievery.

The coalition includes 30 different groups and institutions merged to investigate how to leverage Web3 tech like cryptocurrencies and blockchain to help the world become carbon neutral.

“An important and unique aspect of Web3 is that it uses technology to support and reward direct community engagement and action,” said WEF head of digital assets Brynly Llyr.

The coalition will examine how to add “carbon credits” to the blockchain. Partners include Accenture, the Crypto Council for Innovation, Rainforest Partnership, the Sustainable Bitcoin Standard, Zero Labs and others.

European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen confirmed the Nord Stream pipeline system leaks were caused by "sabotage," and warned of the "strongest possible response" should active European energy infrastructure be attacked. 

Earlier, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen described the three separate leaks on NS1 and NS2 as "deliberate acts," adding: "It’s hard to imagine that it’s accidental."

But Gates is still worried about domestic polarization in the U.S., which he sees little hope for in the short-term. “I admit that political polarization may bring it all to an end, we’re going to have a hung election and a civil war,” he said. “I have no expertise in that, I’m not going to divert my money to that because I wouldn’t know how to spend it.”
