I don’t like to be a wowser about people saying racially charged things, but even for me this Twitter thread was a bit much.
Have a read and see what you think:
1. On –/–/2020 I gave birth to the cutest boy ever, —- Jr. I felt safe, heard, and respected. The women on my left [in the photo] (OB-GYN and L&D RN) played a large part in why I have a testimony of a non-traumatic birth experience as a White woman. I will tell you why. A thread : 1/10
High IQ is especially important in commanding positions and in the more “g loaded” services. According to a 2015 paper by M.F. Cancian and M.W. Klein, it seems to have been going rapidly down even before the diversity drives of the 2010s. The cognitive performance of US Marine officers has seen a 10 IQ point decline between the 1980s and 2010.
If you want to do the math yourself, it works like this: In general, if you can live off four percent of your savings then that nest egg should last you a very long time, probably until death. We will get to the important provisos in a moment. First, let’s look at an example. Say you want to retire today on $50,000 per annum. Nice, hey? Let’s calculate:
A stone’s throw from my house there’s an old Spanish watchtower. It’s similar to the one in the photo but made of large, coral bricks and is even more overgrown.
During the Christmas celebration in the park I heard about its history. Long ago, Moro raiders would come and kidnap people from the area into slavery. When the Spanish arrived they built forts like this to hold them off and the attacks diminished, leading to an increased population as locals took advantage of the security to develop the area.
The clergyman giving the speech gave all the credit to the Church, which seems a bit unfair to the guys with the guns.
I remembered that these days the Moro continue to steal people from other islands, though now it is to hold them hostage. Foreigners are often targeted as their families may be able to pay a larger ransom.
Now that Trump is out of the way, the Left can go back to eating itself.
First under the bus is NY governor Cuomo, whose murderous mishandling of Covid was well known to anyone on right wing Twitter many months ago but is only now being exposed to the common people via the legacy media because the importance of blaming everything on Trump has faded. Apparently he got too big for his boots and was considered a rival to the Obama/Kamala faction but this is rumour, I’ve go no evidence.
A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.

It is not essential to have a high income in order to reach financial freedom. I promised a ‘poor man’s guide’, and this you shall have. However, if you can find a way to increase your income a bit, you’ll achieve financial freedom more quickly, and/or reach a higher level of financial freedom. As we will keep repeating, it is all about what you do with the money once you have it. Plenty of high-income people are floundering in debt and have no control over their finances at all.
People in the capital, Kinshasa, stoned and torched the 12ft (3.7m) triangular prism . . .
Some feared it was satanic or put there by aliens or by a secret cabal . . .
“We woke up and saw this metallic triangle… We were surprised because it is a triangle that we often see in documentaries about freemasons or illuminati,” local resident Serge Ifulu is quoted by Reuters as saying.
There are two ways of dealing with your debt situation.
Method A: sort it out yourself, using the system I will outline in a moment.
Method B: throw your hands in the air, admit that you’re totally out of your depth and get professional help.
If you know exactly what your debts are, what the rates of interest are (or you can find this information easily enough), and are already making some progress towards paying them off, Method A might be right for you.
If you are unsure about exactly how much you owe or at what rate, and you are too afraid to open those angry, registered mail envelopes that regularly appear, or to answer those persistent phone calls, you might want to skip straight over to Method B.
On 25th February, 2020, I wrote an article listing the many US and world leaders over the age of 70, pointing out that there was a very high chance not all of them would survive that year (with or without the coof) and that this unsurprising outcome would likely give rise to baseless conspiracy allegations.
The man who never has enough money to pay his debts has too much of something else.

‘Get out of debt.’ Yes, it’s easier said than done. But this is a basic, essential step that cannot be avoided. You will not be financially free until your debt situation is under control. But don’t worry, I’m going to teach you some MMA moves to get you there faster. You’re going to smash those debts like you’re playing a one-sided Mortal Kombat game.
This step comes before investing for a very good reason. Your debt is costing you. A lot. Your wealth is going backwards. There’s little point making investments until your consumer debts are paid off. As mentioned earlier, a mortgage debt may be an exception.
I’m not going to make the case for any of these things.
Rather, this is a reminder that Team Blue’s primary means of advocating these views are (a) to insist that we believe the science and listen to experts, and (b) to censor any alternative views as ‘disinformation’.
The shortest period of time lies between the minute you put some money away for a rainy day and the unexpected arrival of rain.

Wouldn’t it be awful if some random event came along and totally messed up your budget and forced you back into (deeper) debt? Something like a medical emergency, car repairs, losing your job for being caught reading a politically incorrect blog at work, legal fees because you get locked up in an Indonesian prison on trumped-up charges, an F-35 crashing into your house, etc. etc.
Well, here’s some bad news. As time passes, the probability of some such random, nasty event occurring approaches 100%. In other words, bad things do happen from time to time. It is not a risk. It is a certainty.
There’s an evil German engineer trying to take over the world through a nefarious scheme called The Great Reset. It’s probably full-on Soviet Marxism in Woke clothing. As for Klaus Schwab himself, I can’t tell whether he’s a demon in human form or just a lizard person. Maybe something halfway between.
