On January 29, 1981 young Suzanne Rossetti locked herself out of her car in Phoenix on the way to meeting her parents. Two drifters offered to help her out. One was an escaped convict, the other had just been released from prison. Within minutes they had abducted Suzanne who they then subjected to a night of rape and terror before brutally murdering her in Arizona’s Superstition Mountains. This is an account of murder, told from all sides, such as you’ve never read before.
There is No Battery Fairy
Our dependence on lithium batteries is coming with a high and unappreciated cost. We use them everywhere and soon electric vehicles will be gobbling up the greatest part of them. This headlong charge into electric vehicles is fool hearty and stupid. First, there isn’t enough electricity to support them. You can’t charge them with windmills and solar panels. The electricity is going to come from fossil fuels unless the Greens want to go with nuclear power. Didn’t think so. Second, batteries are highly toxic and will be major polluters both where the metals for them are mined and where they are disposed of after use. Read more at Wired magazine does a nice job.
New Virus Variant Will Keep us Locked Down
I’ve long felt that Covid 19 was being manipulated from the first for political ends. This was confirmed when the so-called medical experts were taking political stands that had nothing to do with a medical response. We have many viruses for which we have no vaccine, why should this one be the exception? But, no, we have several vaccines but they are going to have to be fine tuned as the virus mutates. I expect 2021 to simply be a repeat of what we’ve just gone through. This is the big takeover, with government everywhere assuming new powers over our lives. Glad to be living in a remote city in the Andes. Here’s more from NPR, that bastion of truth and integrity, or as we say, fellow travelers.
This Lockdown is Making the Rich Richer
Here in Ecuador the national lockdowns which surge across the economy in destructive waves has destroyed the small family run stores that are the backbone of the working class. All the while the big national chains have been exempted from closing and prosper as never before. The same thing has happened in the U.S. Amazon is enjoying record profits as are the other Big Tech companies. They support the Dems to the tune of hundred of millions of dollars and through massive censorship. Is it any wonder the left wants to keep the lockdowns going? AIER visits the issue.
If You Want to Know What a Real Impeachment is Like…
I don’t like posting two of my books back to back but the events of last week have persuaded me I should. Below is my book on the Arizona impeachment of Evan Mecham. It was a model for how a real impeachment should be. Read it and weep for the travesty Nancy Pelosi and the Dems have made of this constitutional process.

CIA Releases UFO Documents
By way of the Freedom of Information Act, thousands of CIA documents on unidentified flying objects (UFOs) — or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), as the government calls them — are now accessible via download at the Black Vault website. Frankly, I doubt they will shed any real light on this ongoing phenomenon but you never know. Let me know.
U.S. Gov Prepares to Dump $3 Billion in Seized Bitcoin
The Feds seize Bitcoin routinely as the result of criminal investigations just as they do luxury boats, houses, cars and traditional bank accounts. They now have an estimated $3 billion worth on their books and as they have on two previous occasions are preparing to sell them. CryptoNews.com argues they’d better serve the public by holding onto them.
