Heretical Thoughts On Orthodoxies
Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

Heresy evolves, orthodoxy cannot. Plan accordingly. Orthodoxies offer the comforting illusion of solidarity. But in what lies ahead, we’re on our own.

In today’s world, the key orthodoxies are secular rather than religious: they are economic, ideological, political. Religious orthodoxy is in the spiritual realm. It may have secular ramifications (for example, Galileo being forced to renounce his scientific advances) but it doesn’t deal with forecasts of real-world systems.

Economic, ideological and geopolitical orthodoxies are different. They make forecasts about the real world, and they will be

‘Curiouser And Curiouser’ – Is Joe Biden Serving Two Masters?
Authored by Rob Smith via RealClear Wire,

Here is something you won’t hear anywhere else. It is clear that Joe Biden is being ratted out in the classified document scandal, but by whom? Tucker Carlson is convinced it is a cabal of Democratic Party members who want a new presidential nominee for 2024. Tucker, I love ya, but I don’t think so. I believe foreign actors and their interests  may be involved.

Joe Biden has been in politics for 50 years. He’s never had a real job.

Are You Really Against Fossil Fuels? Read This Before You Answer
Authored by Vijay Jayaraj via RealClearEnergy.org,

It is easy for anyone to say that they are against fossil fuels. Opposition to coal, oil and natural gas is fashionable and will prompt heads to nod and even hands to applaud in most places. 

But are people aware of the extent to which their lives are dependent on fossil fuels? Do they know that more than 90 percent of things used in their everyday lives are derived from fossil fuels?

From your toothbrush to your car tire, a majority of

Leftist Media Claims Tyre Nichols Death At The Hands Of Five Black Police “Still About Racism”
We all knew it was coming; the establishment media never seems to miss a trick when it comes to making a tragic death into a race conflict.  The exploitation of the murdered as a means to gain social influence is a decidedly leftist endeavor.  You might even start to think that they want to trigger rioting across the country based on false premises.  But that would be crazy, right?  

Mobs directed by disinformation are a useful weapon for national division.  Mainstream media outlets

The West can never again go totalitarian

We saw it happen generations ago. We fought two of humanity’s most destructive wars and faced the horror of industrial-scale extermination. Never again, said the world’s peoples in the late 1940s, and they began the difficult task of uncovering all that had been done, all that had gone wrong. 

The mass graves, the German and Soviet labor camps, the Japanese massacres in the Far East, America’s internment camps, the secret police and the mutilations, the ever-present
