Elon Musk Threatens “Thermonuclear Name & Shame” For Advertisers Leaving Twitter Due To Pressure From Liberal Groups

Gateway Pundit | Nov. 5, 2022

Elon Musk revealed that Twitter is seeing a massive drop in revenue due to advertisers leaving.

He said that activist groups have pressured advertisers — despite the fact nothing has yet changed with Twitter’s content policies.

Elon Musk:

Twitter has had a massive drop in revenue, due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, even though nothing has changed with content moderation and we did everything we could to appease the activists.

A former clerk for Justice Gorsuch, Mike Davis, called on Elon to publicly name these advertisers so they could boycott them.

Elon responded by promising to “name & shame” advertisers fleeing due to pressure from activist groups.

Elon Musk:

Thank you.

A thermonuclear name & shame is exactly what will happen if this continues.

Europe May See Forced De-Industrialization As Result Of Energy Crisis

Oil Price. com | Nov. 3, 2022

The European Union has been quietly celebrating a consistent decline in gas and electricity consumption this year amid record-breaking prices, a cutoff of much of the Russian gas supply, and a liquidity crisis in the energy market.

Yet the cause for celebration is dubious: businesses are not just curbing their energy use and continuing on a business-as-usual basis. They are shutting down factories, downsizing, or relocating. Europe may well be on the way to deindustrialization.

That the European Union is heading for a recession is now quite clear to anyone watching the indicators. The latest there—eurozone manufacturing activity—fell to the lowest since May 2020.

The Stanford Prison Experiment

In 1971, social psychologist Philip Zimbardo, who was also a professor emeritus at California’s Stanford University, used funding from the U.S. Office of Naval Research to conduct an experiment in which groups of college students became either prisoners or guards in a simulated prison environment. Zimbardo acted as the warden.

The stated intent of the study was to measure the effect of role-playing, labeling and social expectations on individual behavior.

Zimbardo decided to run the experiment during the university’s summer break, while the campus was relatively empty. His graduate students crudely converted the basement level of one of the school’s halls into a makeshift prison. Empty offices were turned into prison cells and outfitted with cots. Hallways were outfitted with hidden CCTV cameras. A closet was turned into a solitary confinement chamber.

The following slides, from Dr. Zimbardo himself, quickly and succinctly summarize the Stanford Prison Experiment. For those interested in this topic, there’s a fairly good movie by the same name that came out in 2015. It’s not difficult to find online.

Stanford Prison Study

Volunteering for the Experiment • College students answered a newspaper ad asking for volunteers in a study of the psychol...

Arguably, the Covid-1984 lockdowns are voluntary — in the interest of the “greater good.” The Stanford volunteers were also told their participation was essential in the prison research experiment, an experiment that was in the interest of the “greater good.”

The Arrest • On a quiet Sunday morning in August, a police car swept through the town picking up college students as part ...

Similarly, our lockdowns come suddenly, without warning, and no actual crime has been committed.

Constructing the Experiment • The prison was constructed by boarding up each end of a corridor in the basement of Stanford...

Obviously, like these students, we’re not in an actual prison, but we are indeed imprisoned. Will gruesome Newsom’s next step be ankle bracelets perhaps? The state has just launched a Covid tracking app that it’s encouraging everyone to install on their cell phone.

In the Cells • The experiment began with nine guards and nine prisoners in the jail. Three guards worked each of three eig...

Of course, if you live in a mansion, then stay-at-home orders are like a vacation. For others, however, a university basement might be preferable to their home environment, especially for spouses and children who experience domestic abuse.

Humiliation • The prisoner was then issued a uniform. The main part of this uniform was a dress, or smock, which each pris...

Becoming a Prisoner • The chain on their foot was used in order to remind prisoners of the oppressiveness of their environ...

The masks we must wear are a constant reminder of our situation. People are also easier to abuse when they’re anonymous. For some people, the inability to get a haircut or other grooming services is a form of humiliation.

“When you tell people to be cruel, they’ll do it, if it’s for the greater good,” a Stanford Prison Experiment guard said in an interview, “especially if the person you’re inflicting it on is anonymous.”

Enforcing the Law • The guards were free, within limits, to do whatever they thought was necessary to maintain law and ord...

In our situation, it’s like the federal government is the warden, providing guidance, and the guards are the state governors, who have been given free reign to manage the states as they see fit. There are “good” governors and abusive ones.

Asserting Authority • At 2:30 A.M. prisoners were awakened from sleep by blasting whistles for the first of many

Physical Punishment • Push-ups were a common form of physical punishment imposed by the guards, for infractions of the rul...

Student “prisoners” were often blindfolded to impose a sense of helplessness. We don’t need blindfolds because our threat is an invisible virus. To protect us from this invisible threat, we — in California — are given seemingly and increasingly arbitrary rules to follow. Restrictions on small businesses in particular have been quite arbitrary and punitive, with rules changing week by week as owners hop from one foot to the next trying to comply.

Asserting Independence • Because the first day passed without incident, the guards were surprised and totally unprepared f...

During our first wave of federal lockdowns, we, too, were quite compliant. The second federal lockdown created a little bit of pushback. When states, such as California, tried continuing the lockdowns, there were protests. Then we were told to wear masks.

Putting Down the Rebellion • The guards called in reinforcements. The three guards who were waiting on stand-by duty came ...

Consequences of Rebellion • The prisoners' rebellion played an important role in producing greater solidarity among the gu...

How many people have been arrested and imprisoned for violating Covid restrictions? Has anyone been counting or done a study thus far?

Special Privileges • One of the three cells was designated as a

Who, during our lockdowns, has been granted special privileges? “Essential workers,” “essential businesses,” the political class and their minions, and billionaires.

Prisoner #8612 • Less than 36 hours into the experiment, Prisoner #8612 began suffering from acute emotional disturbance, ...

There has been a three-fold increase in the number of people suffering from anxiety and depression during the Covid lockdowns. The suicide rate has increased up to an estimated 145% thus far.

A Visit from Parents • The next day, they held a visiting hour for parents and friends. They were worried that when the pa...

By giving prisoners a visiting day, Stanford experimenters further tormented their captives by reminding them what normal is, and enhanced their longing to escape their circumstances. Similarly, during the scamdemic tyranny, we’ve been afforded short breaks to experience almost-normal life. For a brief time, small businesses were allowed to open with expensive modifications. Patrons could dine indoors or go to a show or the gym. And then — suddenly — our almost normal life is ripped away yet again, and again, and again.

Stepping Things Up • After the visit, rumor spread of a mass escape plan. Afraid that they would lose the prisoners, the g...

A guard involved in the experiment later commented that he came to the job every day asking himself, “How can we ramp up what we did yesterday?” He added, “I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it. I even got off on it a little bit.”

Another said, “I don’t see where it was really harmful. … I wanted to see how much abuse people would take – how much abuse they would let me give — and still people didn’t say anything.”

With each new lockdown comes new restrictions.

An Informant in the Prison • The guards had become so immersed in the simulation they started getting paranoid. In an atte...

Falling Further From Reality • Zimbardo invited a Catholic priest who had been a prison chaplain to evaluate how realistic...

Prisoner #819 • The only prisoner who did not want to speak to the priest was Prisoner #819, who was feeling sick, had ref...

Prisoner #819 • While this was going on, one of the guards lined up the other prisoners and had them chant aloud: •

Look at the way the news media and social media shames, torments and censors those who don’t comply with Covid restrictions.

Back to Reality • At that point, Zimbardo said,

The same thing happened with Covid. The plebs were essentially told “this is not a real prison” and life can go back to normal now. And people just say “okay” and go about their lives like nothing happened. I’m not so sure.

An End to the Experiment • Christina Maslach, a recent Stanford Ph.D. brought in to conduct interviews with the guards and...

Has anyone in a position of authority — ANYONE — effectively argued the morality of keeping children out of school, locking people up in their homes and taking away their livelihood over a virus that’s treatable for 99.97% of the population?


“Don’t ever come between a man and his meal. Taking a man’s livelihood away from him is akin to killing him.” — David Chappelle


In the End • “By the end of the study, the prisoners were disintegrated, both as a group and as individuals. There was no ...

The two-week Stanford Prison Experiment was brought to a halt after just six days.

Plenty has been written and observed about the impact of lockdowns on prisoners. What made the Stanford experiment a little different was that it looked psychological transformation of those who were doing the imprisoning. It concluded that the sadistic treatment of prisoners by guards was due to three key things: prisoner anonymity, depersonalization and power.

Dr. Zimbardo later went on to write about his findings in a book called “The Lucifer Effect,” and his study was used to explain the sadistic treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib.

Torchy Takeaway

Have we, like the Stanford students, forgotten that we have free will? Going along to get along does nothing more than continually reinforce the power of authoritarians, who will become increasingly abusive.

The members of a small community in northern California joined together and decided to give the finger to gruesome Newsom. They’re keeping all of their businesses open, even indoor dining. They’ve vowed as a community to fight any infringements on their rights. So far, there has been no consequence.

So the question is this: How long will you continue to participate in the Covid Prison Experiment?

Blue Whales Eat 10 Million Pieces of Microplastic A Day & Humans Eat A Credit Card A Week

Take a breath. Release the tension in your body. Place attention on your physical heart. Breathe slowly into the area for 60 seconds, focusing on feeling a sense of ease. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

Fragments of plastic have been found almost everywhere in our oceans.  24.4 trillion pieces of microplastics pollute the world’s upper oceans. They have a combined weight of 82,000 to 578,000 tons which equals approximately 30 billion 500-ml plastic water bottles worth of plastic.

It’s a huge problem, and marine life has been affected for quite some time. Perhaps this is why these microplastics have also been found inside human organs and blood.

A new study has found that Blue whales consume up to 10 million pieces of microplastic every day, posing a dangerous situation for the worlds largest largest animal than previously thought. The study was recently published in Nature Communications.

A US-led research team put tags on 191 blue fin and humpback whales that live off the coast of California to observe their movements. The whales mostly fed at depths of between 50 to 250 meters (165-820 feet), which is home to the greatest concentration of microplastics.

The researchers then estimated the size and number of mouthfuls the whales had daily, including what was filtered out, and modelled three different scenarios. Under the most likely scenario, the blue whales ate up to 10 million microplastic pieces a day. Over the 90-120 day annual feeding season, that represents more than a billion pieces a year.

Do You Eat Seafood?

The kicker is the fact that these whales aren’t just gulping up these microplastics through ocean water. According to the researchers, 99 percent of the microplastics enter into the whales because they (the microplastics) are already inside their prey. Humans also consume this pray, and other marine life that is no doubt also inundated with these microplastics.

We already know that humans ingest and inhale microplastics, up to 121,000 microparticles per year for an adult, or as one controversial “comparison” puts it, the equivalent of a credit card (5 grams) per week.

Since a new process to detect plastic microparticles accumulated in the human body was accepted by the scientific community in 2020, studies confirm a number of shocking conclusions:

  • microplastics were detected in the human blood of 80% of people tested.
  • microplastics were discovered in the lungs of 11 out of 13 sampled surgery patients.
  • microplastics were found in intestines, placentas of fetuses, and in new-born babies.

Health issues in humans and animals these days are complicated. They are no doubt multi-factorial in many cases. The next step here is to determine how much and how these microplastics can impact human health and what role they are playing in the declining health of the global population.

Solutions?

There are multiple solutions available. One popular initiative is called The Ocean Cleanup. Their floating systems are designed to capture plastics ranging from small pieces, just millimetres in size, up to large debris, including massive, discarded fishing nets (ghost nets), which can be tens of meters wide.

Modeling predicts that they need around 10 full-size systems to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. After fleets of their systems are deployed into every ocean gyre, combined with source reduction, The Ocean Cleanup projects to be able to remove 90% of floating ocean plastic by 2040.

You can learn more about them here.

If the world wanted to, it could easily solve these issues. We could stop manufacturing products and creating plastics, and use more sustainable harmless materials like hemp, for example.

We have so much potential and so many solutions available, but we rely on big money, big politics and big business to solve these solutions. We rely on a corrupt system that incentivizes bad behaviour in order to make more money and gain more control in the marketplace. We are in essence stuck in a race to the bottom trap within our existing economies and the worldviews that run them

We have a “green washing revolution” that is driven by big business and profit as opposed to really focusing on cleaning up our planet. The big shift here is going to be in changing our relationship to life, one another, and our planet. This is key as opposed to the material reductionism that guides the vast majority of our current culture

We made a short documentary a couple of years ago year called Regenerate: Beyond The CO2 Narrative. After 11 years of researching and investigating climate change, we came to many conclusions that we felt needed to be shared, yet were extremely rare in public discourse. 

One of the most important aspects of Regenerate is that we are looking at our environment from such a limited point of view that we can’t identify the real issues we face, and that our level of thinking, or consciousness, is completely disconnected from the solutions required to truly shift our relationship with earth.

Podcast: War Game Planning against the Population

The headline and sub-headline above describe this podcast.

Add: the Preparatory Conditioning and Behavior Modification were the COVID Lockdowns

From my extensive research on the pandemic fraud — particularly the economic, social, and mind control factors — I’m going to war-game the war gamers in the podcast.

What are they planning? How can they launch an economic and political “COVID 2”?

What are their scenarios for dramatically lowering the curtain on the civilization we’re used to living in?

How have they set the stage?

Obviously, all this is vital to understand.

My aim: to “run the numbers” the planners are running; to show you their real and doable and executable plot lines, which could be launched on a moment’s notice.

I hope you’ll listen to this podcast and think it through with me. We may be closer to the Edge than we realize.
