    Well...

    But our Governor is apparently not privy to this information. It's secret.

    I take issue with this new definition of "conspiracy". It has recently become nothing more than a buzzword, ad-hominen attack.
    By definition, a conspiracy is not the actions of a single, highly powerful individual or activities that are conducted openly.

    Maybe BLM actually is a conspiracy to conduct a clandestine IQ and critical thinking test:

    I think the Macy's fireworks display in NYC is going to be an interesting test of will for the city, it's occupants, and it's governance. I predict at least some demonstrators, if not rioters, stirring the shit as darkness falls. The response of all and sundry will be telling, should my guess prove correct.

    Given the general disrespect by many republican hardliners for Mitch McConnell and his often and measured go slow approach, his new TV ad confronts the mob and limp dem executive politicos head on. McConnell Takes Mob Fight To the Airwaves – USSA News | The Tea Party's Front Page

    I don't know if this gets much if any air time outside the state of Kentucky, but McConnell is facing reelection this cycle and he has taken off the gloves. I live less than an hour's drive from the state and watch news a regional TV station based out of Paducah, I've seen this ad a few times and it's stirring to FINALLY see someone at his level pushing back and vocally deploring the goings on. My searches for a link to the video of the ad have turned up nothing so far.

    IQ is a quantitative trait which is normally distributed within populations. People can be theoretically be found at every level of the IQ distribution. It’s just a question of probability.

    Notable gap. Notable differences. Perhaps you don't know your data? You're not getting your numbers right.

    Every single behavioral trait ever documented among human beings is heritable: twins, adoption, GCTA analysis all find them. Behavioural predispositions have significant heritability. Aggression is familial and heritable. The environmental influence is minimal.

    Group differences exist. There is a legal mandate to eliminate such gaps – but nobody knows how to do it. When cognitive ability is accounted for, group income gaps do not exist. Equally, the same holds true for the economic mobility gap. Nor is wealth or income driving IQ differences – it’s simply not the case. They’ve looked.
    Okay, fair enough. I agree, and it doesn't impact the underpinnings of my position: allow American Liberty, which provides a fair but accountable environment (accountability coming from others in the community/country and NOT the government), to be the new driving force behind the cultural and environmental factors which in turn drive selection of genes through individual choice and action. Don't try to figure it out for 330 million people. Allow 330 million people, in the best situation we can give them, to figure it out for themselves. Hopefully, in such a way, we can over time both raise and close the gaps between demographics, but it WILL take a long time and we will NEVER eliminate the issues with the lower tails.

    Agreed?

    Careful! Don't reveal the charade. We must always maintain several steps between the seen and unseen to continue hoodwinking the common man.

The Mcloskeys had SEEN what these terrorists had done earlier in St Louis. They understood there was a clear and present danger.

    This is the problem. You say citizens should be reaching for cameras?! In such a situation, i hope all business owners, home owners, and others who need to protect their kin and their property from these violent, erratic and ignorant neo-Bolsheviks will reach for their gun!
    As one can see from comparing the available photos with Google Map, it was along the front of their house and without any video from the home owners that shows otherwise, it appears that most of the crowd was on the sidewalk and in the street. So while they were trespassing in a private community, they were not inside the couples private residence. Laws vary from state to state, but few states, if any, allow you to shoot somebody for stepping off the sidewalk onto your front lawn.

    The reasoning behind the need to video any conflict, is if only one side is filming, they control the narrative the police and the district attorney see. As for the woman and her gun, that was sad, she clearly had no training in firearms, nor had the couple a plan/idea for what to do if forced to use their firearms. A plan that would have made sense: While he maintained over-watch with the rifle, is for her to have her firearm in a holster, call 911 and video the event, And on the subject of 911, there's no mention in any of the articles I've read of the couple calling 911. This is important, If you feel so threatened that you pick up a weapon, then as soon as possible you need to call 911.

In other words, the shift to a new abnormal is largely unconscious and ir-rational. A little like The Prisoner (McGoohan, 1967), where the Prisoner is #6. The Administrators are #2, who work for an unseen, and I think non-existent, #1.

    Pawns of our own devices?
    For the word "conspiracy", substitute a more NPR acceptable phrase like "central planning".

    It is central planning by the unelected at the global scale...and it's real, has unlimited money, and full of sociopaths. Until people "see it"...point at it...recognize it is THE problem...we'll continue to talk about the fake reality the planners create.

    We'll never solve the problem because the unelected planners ARE the problem.

    Do not attribute to stupidity what can be easily explained by sociopathy.
    Now that's concision. There's such a deep tree of information buried in those two sentences.

    I think Dr Sully will agree, 1 out 100 adults over 18 are sociopaths. They are drawn to positions of authority, and sometimes they have enormous wealth.

    "Conspiracy theory" is the opposite of institutional analysis.

    Just in this thread alone, we have uncovered so many institutional lies. In just the last 3 years, we have watched the media (an institution in the US) lead the public down wild goose chases...swearing they were true...and EVERY SINGLE ONE of them turned out to be COMPLETE FABRICATION.

    Yet, we still turn our mind off as soon as a person points at evidence of "central planning by the unelected".

    They planned the response to this virus. They have an agenda. This is not a theory. I know it's not trendy to point at [them] as the problem. But I won't stop.
