COVID Backpedaling is Classic Gaslighting

51693639056 c50b20438f c

The term Gaslighting has gained usage over the past decade as a fixture of pop psychology. Broadly, the term describes a pattern of manipulation that victims experience in abusive relationships.  Psychology Today defines it thusly Gaslighting is an insidious form of manipulation and psychological control. Victims of gaslighting are deliberately and systematically fed false information that leads them to question what they know to be true, often about themselves. They may end up doubting their memory, their perception, and even their sanity. Over time, a gaslighter’s manipulations can grow...

WATCH: Dozens of NYPD Remove Child Without Vaccine Passport from Restaurant

nypdboy 1050x525

As TFTP reported, earlier this month, New York mayor Bill de Blasio expanded the already-tyrannical “Key to NYC” program which imposed a vaccination mandate for workers and customers at indoor dining, fitness, entertainment and performance venues. Anyone who wished to enter a public place would first be required to give that place a glimpse into their personal medical records by providing proof that they had taken a covid-19 vaccination. Beginning last week, this discriminatory and unscientific practice was expanded to include children, ages 5-11, who are now also forced to show proof of...

RIP Keith Hufnagel

RIP Keith Hufnagel, great skater and great spreader of skateboarding to the people. Someone figure out how to cure cancer please. Thrasher's eulogy: THE WORD LEGEND has entered our everyday lexicon to the point that we've lost sight of its huge power and rarity. Keith Hufnagel defined the word, his reputation extending far beyond our skateboarding bubble, a man so iconic that his name, in just three letters, H-U-F, has come to represent a worldwide brand. Hailing from New York City, HUF burst onto the 1990s San Francisco skate scene with otherworldly power and pop, reaching the height of...

On Conflicts of Interest #11, Kyle and Will update ongoing peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government, which continue despite a sharp spike in violence in the country.

The indictment here She is accused of: Conspiracy to have sex with minors Trafficking in minors for sexual activity Perjury But, will we ever find out who the "others" are?

Wall Street Journal: NY Hospital Prepares to Begin Triaging Patients

NYU Langone Tells ER Doctors to ‘Think More Critically’ About Who Gets Ventilators NYU Langone Health, one of the nation’s top academic medical centers, told emergency-room doctors that they have “sole discretion” to place patients on ventilators and institutional backing to “withhold futile intubations.” A March 28 email from Robert Femia, who heads the New York health center’s department of emergency medicine, underscored the life-or-death decisions placed on the shoulders of bedside physicians as they treat increasing numbers of coronavirus patients with a limited supply of...

How Cronyism Created New York City’s Taxi Medallion Bubble

If one wanted to study the difference between an industry that exists in a very free market and its exact counterpart in a system of extreme government regulation, then you don’t need to look further than the New York City taxi industry. New York City yellow cabs entered government regulation in 1937 when city officials decided that something needed to be done about those enterprising people who were buying automobiles and then driving on city streets, charging passengers fares for where they wanted to go. During that year, the existing taxi drivers were allowed to apply for medallions,...

I Think I Just Saved Democracy. You’re Welcome.

My latest hairbrained scheme that just might work. The U.S. Capital used to be in New York City, but became so infested with lobbyists it had to move to Philadelphia, and then again to what is now Washington, D.C. One look at D.C. and obviously we need another move. This is going to keep happening, so how about we have each state take turns running the country each year? This also gives states a balance of power without the Electoral College! Colorado's turn will legalize weed on a national level, New Hampshire will have a national ban on compulsory auto insurance, and Nevada will...
