Yesterday we posted a strip of newspaper about an unusual tactic of war, but fully within the Chinese manual of unrestricted warfare, of how people in the UK had been receiving unsolicited packets of seeds in the mail. The recipients appeared to have been selected by anyone who had bought seeds from Amazon.xxx. Now this is being reported in Utah as well. Although it likely means this is everywhere. Is this an invasive species where they are hoping that people will plant something that will do great damage to the local balance of nature? Drugs? Genetically modified plants that will do some other form of more direct harm to people?
(Please click through to see the video. The embeded code I used changed itself to a weather report.)
[…] She posted about the strange incident on Facebook, where some of her friends reminded her plants and seeds are strictly regulated in Utah.
FOX 13 has confirmed the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food will likely team up with Customs and Border Protection agents to investigate.
An employee with the Utah Department of Agriculture picked up the seeds within a few hours of learning about the incident.
Culley said she was surprised to learn the same thing has happened to “at least 40 people” who either publicly commented or privately responded to her post. Most of them live in Tooele. […]
2. Mark Steyn wrote a piece worthy of the issue on how orchestras have decided to abandon merit in favour a more distributed Pantone chart of skin colours. So symphonies could well be on the list of things to avoid in the near future with some professional sports. Mind you that doesn’t mean that more local merit based, apolitical sports won’t be available until they get popular and certainly excellent players may find a way to book venues and do concerts. But in terms of the official and ‘traditional’ ways of taking in these events, the Marxist engine of dialectic destruction has now gotten around to symphony orchestras.
[…] Tommasini begins his piece, entitled “To Make Orchestras More Diverse, End Blind Auditions“, by decrying the racism and sexism which, he claims, kept the orchestras of yesteryear predominantly white and male. He then pays tribute to the simple practice that helped erase that racism and sexism from orchestra hiring procedures: the blind audition. Starting in the late 1960s, orchestras began ditching traditional face-to-face auditions in favour of auditions that took place behind screens. With orchestra administrators no longer able to see the race or sex of the orchestra applicant, conscious and unconscious bias in hiring choices became impossible. Musical skill became the sole criterion for winning one of those prized professional playing positions.
This meritocratic turn, Tommasini argues, proved especially beneficial to female players. Whereas in 1970, women made up only 6% of orchestras, they now make up somewhere between a third and half of an average orchestra.
I add that audiences also benefited from meritocratic hiring processes as orchestras played increasingly brilliant renditions of the classics. Those improved performances also showed greater reverence for the original composers themselves. In short, the blind audition was a big win for all lovers of musical excellence – players, living composers, and fans alike.
So why on earth would anyone now call for their abolition?
Tommasini answers this way:
“Blind auditions changed the face of American orchestras. But not enough. American orchestras remain among the nation’s least racially diverse institutions, especially in regard to black and Latino artists…Ensembles must be able to take proactive steps to address the appalling racial imbalance that remains in their ranks. Blind auditions are no longer tenable”. […]
3. Please read this letter from one of the last, if not the last, member of the Ontario Provincial Parliament to represent the law and the people, to the highly paternal Liquor Control Board of Ontario. Notice his use of the term, Ultra-Vires. This is the first time I have seen someone in government who are supposed to protect the people and the rule of law, use this important term which could and should be the complete undoing of the new counter-state based on fiat instead of legislation.

Dear Mr. Soleas;
It has come to my attention that a number of LCBO locations are acting ultra vires of the law on
mandatory masking. I have received a number of complaints from the public and licensed
vendors specifically about the LCBO location in Perth, Ontario.
As an Agency of the Government of Ontario, the LCBO has a fiduciary obligation to ensure that
their employees are fully aware of the specifics, including the mandated exemptions in the local
Health Unit’s mandatory mask order.
For greater clarity, there are a number of citizens who due to a disability, either pulmonary
disabilities, mental health, cardio-vascular disability, or PTSD (as a few examples), cannot wear
It violates our Charter Rights to deny someone with a disability access to services, especially
those that are single source services provided by the Government of Ontario. At minimum, you
have a duty to accommodate those who cannot wear masks, by following the mandatory mask
orders issued and allowing someone unable to wear a mask to enter the store, to have staff
assist in the shopping experience, or to offer some “curbside pick-up” alternative.
It is against the law for anyone, other than a health agent identified in the Personal Health
Information Protection Act, to ask someone what health condition prevents them from wearing
Violating the directives provided in the mandatory mask order could result in the LCBO being
subject in a Human Rights lawsuit or a Charter Rights lawsuit. I have made it clear to both local
businesses in my riding, and to my constituents, that I will provide whatever assistance and aide
I can to assist them in executing proceedings against any who have legitimate reason and cause
to believe their Charter Right to be free from discrimination because of a disability was
In a time when compassion and understanding for the unique nature of every individual’s
health and well-being ought to be paramount, we are instead seeing people insulted, rejected,
and vilified by agents of the LCBO.
I trust the LCBO will take the necessary steps to ensure all of their operators, managers and
staff are acutely aware of the law, and the exemptions the law provides for. We are a nation of
laws, and any agency of the government believes it can operate ultra vires of the law ought to
be held accountable and dismantled.
The Rt. Hon. MPP Randy Hiller also has a couple of excellent Facebook posts about the facts around Ontario’s response to Covid and important questions those facts raise. In this post he raises parallels from history on how totalitarian regimes spring up from “Pandemics”.
Both of those links are Facebook. If this is a problem for anyone, it is for me in a way, let me know in the comments and Ill do my best to post screen grabs here.
4. North Carolina professor is found dead weeks after taking early retirement following online petition to get him fired over tweet where he dubbed State governor ‘Massa Cooper’ and compared coronavirus restrictions to a ‘slave state’
A North Carolina professor has been found dead just a week before he was set to take early retirement following an online petition to have him fired for his controversial social media comments.
Deputies discovered the body of University of North Carolina-Wilmington professor Mike Adams, 55, while performing a wellness check at his home at around 2pm Thursday.
Police are conducting an investigation and did not release additional details about the circumstances of Adams’ death.
Adams had a history of making misogynistic and racist comments on social media, and his death comes less than a month after the university announced he would retire.
(Wellness Check? In an Orwellian state, I have a pretty good idea of what a Wellness Check would mean. But what is it in North Carolina at this time? Does this mean that groups like ANTIFA etc. are now murdering people for “Wrong Think” even after they have been “Cancelled”? It is noteworthy that the Daily Mail article is written almost to justify his murder by framing his tweets as capitol offences. For Example, Johns Hopkins also says that Transsexualism is a mental illness but the cosmetic surgery does not alleviate the symptoms so they stopped doing it.)

6. This clip has been sent in by many people across multiple platforms. While this mirror of it shows under 2000 views, it has to have millions overall. He is certainly right about how we have to view politicians. They are not of us anymore.

8. More proof that the whole Russia investigation was in fact an attempt to unseat a duly elected President.

10. Start checking your receipts. You might be funding the enemy
In terms of reporting on BLM however, the fact that MSM has not reported that this is in reality a Marxist organization usurping the narrative on Black people world wide to lubricate the transition to Marxism in the West is such an enormous omission that the truth or falsity of this minor claim of funding BLM via a surcharge, when we know that major corporations and sports orgs. are funding them to the tunes of millions, feels a little like an Alinsky rule 4 tactic. That is to say, we, the non-Marxists, the individualists and actual liberals, are being forced to adhere to a standard at such a staggeringly high degree that its nearly impossible to maintain it and actually get informaiton out there. Meanwhile the MSM, CBC as one example, fictionalizes real events for the narrative and faces no backlash except from the few both awake, and brave enough to suffer the consequences of calling them out. This does not mean that we should publish false information. Only that it is extremely difficult to check everything that comes in that seems worthy of posting.
MANY things we are sent don’t pass the smell test and are discarded. But this seemed in the grand view of today’s zeitgeist to be a very likely true compared to much more horrifying things which are established fact.

Thank you Tania Groth, M., Wrath of Khan, MarcusZ1967, Yucki, Will, and MANY more. its frantic here today. A lot to try and process. But I hope you all take a minute or three and read all the posts linked by MPP Randy Hillier. It’s quite encouraging to see these words from a Member of the legislature. Randy has always been one of the bright lights. A few years ago, he brought Jordan Peterson to a small town arena to speak, just outside of Ottawa. This requires convictions, and the courage to live those convictions.
