Linux kernel 6.2 should contain fixes for some problems handling floppy disks, a move which shows that someone somewhere is still using them.

This isn't the only such fix in recent years. As a series of articles on Phoronix details, there has been a slow but steady flow of fixes for the kernel's handling of floppy drives since at least kernel 5.17, as The Reg mentioned when it came out. Which implies that there are still people actively using floppy diskettes on machines with fairly current Linux kernels on them. If you are one of them, do let us know.

We’ve come across what could be another automotive company intentionally detuning engines so it can offer performance packages to customers via an over-the-air update.

Swedish EV car company Polestar, a subsidiary of Volvo and Geely, is charging customers $17.50 per horsepower in an over-the-air software update for the long-range, dual-motor variant of the 2, reported Autoblog

The upgrade adds 68 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque that boosts the 2’s dual-motor powertrain from 408hp and 487 lb-ft of torque to 476hp and 502 lb-ft. It will cost a one-time fee of $1,195.

Problem - Reaction - Solution.  British Prime Minister and billionaire associate of the World Economic Forum Rishi Sunak is calling for draconian police powers to deal with "illegal protests," using the disruptive glue-happy traffic activism of groups like Just Stop Oil as a rationale. 

To be sure, no one likes the fanaticism of Extinction Rebellion protesters, primarily because their movement is based on fear mongering over non-existent man-made global warming.  People are not going to be inspired by activists gluing themselves to roads and blocking traffic over a temperature increase of less than 1 degree Celsius in a century.  The problem is that the actions of these protesters are being exploited by government officials in order to con the public into supporting police powers that could be used against more legitimate freedom movements tomorrow.

In an emergency press conference, the National Farmers Union (NFU) said the government needed to step in to assist farmers who are under severe strain.

The British farming industry is facing major issues across almost all sectors, with the price of animal feed and nitrogen fertiliser, and fuel skyrocketing. The union warned that yields of crops will likely slump to record lows this year with farmers also considering reducing the size of their herds.

In a stunning 8-to-3 vote yesterday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors banned the SFPD from using deadly force with remote-controlled robots. The Board also sent the killer robot policy back to its Rules Committee for revisions and more public comment. This is a big reversal: just one week ago, the Board voted 8-3 to authorize the SFPD to use these killer robots.

The Bentex Group, an apparel and home decor design and production company, recently pulled out around 87,000 children’s clothes as the textile paint on them contained dangerous levels of lead that can poison kids.

Families were urged to immediately discard the recalled products. The kids’ clothes, which were manufactured in Egypt, were distributed by major retailers all over the United States, including TJ Maxx, DD’s/Ross, Burlington and Amazon between November 2021 and August 2022.

The recall involved children’s clothing sets in nine different Disney-themed styles, with pictures of popular characters Yoda, Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Winnie the Pooh. They were priced between $5 and $25.

A nurse whistleblower warned that fetal deaths dramatically increased after the rollout of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines for pregnant mothers.

This is according to Michelle Gershman, a registered nurse who spoke with Dr. James Thorp and members of the organization Children’s Health Defense regarding the connection between the COVID-19 vaccines and fetal death.

Thorp, a veteran obstetrician-gynecologist, described Gershman’s testimony about how pregnant women were “pushed” into an “experimental gene therapy” program as “the most egregious ethical disaster in the history of medicine. It’s an unparalleled disaster.”

Take a deep breath, Dyson's first pair of noise-cancelling, air-purifying headphones will go on sale in the UK in March, starting at £749.

The postbag at Hatters Hotel in the seaside resort of Skegness gets heavier by the day. It is brimming with letters sent by well-wishers from across Britain with messages such as 'I salute you'; 'Keep up your brave stance'; and 'Let's hope local people support you'.

This is all a surprise for owners Gary and Dee Allen, who this week fielded off film crews, including one from Canada, queuing up to ask why they had turned down — on a 'point of principle,' as they put it — nearly £550,000, which would have been a godsend for them and their three daughters, aged from six to 18.

In exchange for that money from taxpayers, the Government had asked the Allens to close their doors to guests and hand over the keys of their 21-bed hotel for the next year to provide housing for young male migrants.

Professor Emeritus Jim FetzerJoe Olson, and I discuss current events to sharply discern objective reality fit for news from corporate media bullshit to herd sheeple: here on BitChute (censored on YouTube).

 

Professor Fetzer’s summary of today’s show:

 

Russia warns (again) that the risk of nuclear conflict increases daily and that conventional exchanges can easily turn into nuclear catastrophes. Ukraine has used drones to attack two Russian airfields, which is going to produce a powerful response. Look for the war to be effectively concluded by year's end. In the meanwhile, Europe is buying Russian liquified natural gas after the Nord Stream I and II have been taken out (by the UK with US complicity). The Kari Lake legal team and Kari herself have responded negatively to an Obama-appointed Judge dismissing their lawsuit about voting irregularities in the AZ election, evidence for which is abundant and compelling. This is not going to go away. Her case shows that Trump is right about the Constitution: that there are no safeguards against the theft of elections and voting integrity by the states embedded within. That means major reforms are needed in this area, but with 51 Senators on their side (or even 50, if Manchin were to switch sides), it's going to be all but impossible to impose needed reforms. More and more proof emerges of the devastating effects of the mRNA jabs, where another group of medical experts have called for the cessation of all vaccinations. Ain't going to happen, even though it (obviously) should. A non-profit is attempting to fill in the gap, where the Red Cross does not discriminate between vaxxed and unvaxxed blood, putting the unvaxxed at risk. And Tony the Rat has been outed for dealing with Mark Zuckerberg, on the one hand, and having a daughter working at Twitter, on the other. FDR knew the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbor but let it happen to induce Americans to support US entry into WWII. And Ron Avery has done an excellent review of the absurdity of SCOTUS for declining my Petition.

 

As a professional historian, I place current events in context of history. Given so much of our current challenges involve “Covid,” ongoing lie-started and treaty-violating illegal Wars of Aggressionbankster looting easily provable in the tens of trillions, and “official lying” in corporate media and public “education” “texts,” each new article on current events requires ongoing documentation of these historical contexts.

 

My best “shot” explains, documents, and proves that “Covid” + “vaccine” narratives are Crimes Against Humanity: a 4,700-word essay I sent to ~100 teacher colleagues in September, 2021 (received with silence to the facts, with ~20 eventual responses to be removed from such communications). My May 2022 essay to our teachers’ union Board is an excellent overview of the entire history, as is my June 14, 2022 retirement letter (2-hour overview discussion with Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer). Two excellent essays documenting Crimes Against Humanity with “Covid” “vaccines” here and here.

 

Want to learn more about false flags and conspiracies? For ~25 years I’ve learned from Professor Fetzer’s academic work; he offers 24 free video presentations from the False Flags and Conspiracies 2020 Virtual Conference. The 2021 False Flags and Conspiracies Conference is here2022 False Flags and Conspiracies Conference here.

 

Here is my book if you’d like to learn more from me.

 

I’m at 95% certainty that White Hats are in control of AmRev 2.0, with the single best evidence being a 49-minute summary of Charlie Freak’s epic 7-hour presentation of verifiable factsNicholas Veniamin compiled a powerful 63-minute video from 57 sources of testimony, documents, and photo/video evidence to communicate the breakthroughs emerging NOW empowering us into a Star Trek-like future.

 

Context: American Revolution 2.0 2020: PATRIOTS vs. LOYALISTS

 

I’m a professional historian with degrees from Berkeley and Harvard, helped craft and deliver ~300 policy briefs for Members of Congress on ending poverty that led to two UN Summits for heads of state, have written ~1,000 articles since 2009 with ~50 million page views that include published research, and was recognized by two Los Angeles Mayors as among the very best high school teachers among ~20,000 teachers in Central L.A. 

 

I also wrote a 2005 ~40-page White Paper circulated among Members of Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney for those lie-started Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression (200+ footnotes using our own government’s most authoritative official documents as slam-dunk proof of lies known to be lies as they were told, and the opposite of lawful military attack).

 

As a historian with 38 years’ teaching experience to the world’s most challenging audience (captured teenagers), I know that ordinary Americans don’t see the present clearly because We the People are CONSTANTLY lied to about the past and present by .01% political “leaders,” corporate media, and public “education” “texts.”  That is, Americans believe “official” sources because game-changing historical context is CONSTANTLY obfuscated by INTENTIONAL AND OBVIOUS LIES of omission and commission. These are not careless and/or non-consequential errors, but massive, game-changing, and inexcusable lies I document and prove beyond reasonable doubt. 

 

As an academic professional, I factually assert an Emperor’s New Clothes condition; an Orwellian reality that anyone who cares to lift their heads and look will see abundantly for themselves: the United States of America has been an ongoing illegal, looting, lying rogue state empire.

 

Because Americans are crippled by “official” disinformation, Patriot leaders must rise, stand, and teach objective, comprehensive, and independently-verifiable data that explain, document, and prove our .01% “leaders” are engaged in ongoing OBVIOUS CRIMES centered in war and money, with annual costs of killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

 

Many of us are Oath-bound to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. All in the US military are trained to recognize and reject illegal orders, with officers trained to arrest anyone issuing obvious illegal orders. All of you learned in your high school US Government class that any so-called “law” in violation of the Constitution is void and without power.

 

My teaching experience has proven to me that ordinary teen-age humans want the truth, and almost all (~80%) will embrace it thankfully when effectively offered in objective reality. Importantly, family, friends, and colleagues will almost universally (~98%) reject the truth, no matter how effectively offered, and will not see the bullshit excuses they offer in profound cognitive dissonance. I therefore offer this article series only in confidence of the accuracy of its documented facts, and with no confidence how to successfully use these facts in ordinary life among family, friends, and colleagues. The rejecters never ever ever ever engage in factual and reasoned consideration, but resort to ad hominem, denial, and unexamined belief in “leaders.”

 

We Patriots communicate because Planet Earth and the United States are at war. 

 

The war is Patriots versus Psychopaths, Truth versus Lies, Virtue versus Evil. I use these labels as the most accurate I have as a professional scholar, and provide abundant and game-changing evidence among hundreds of authors in alternative media. After engaging with the data in this article series, I challenge you to accurately frame this war in any other way.

 

Please read the above sentence one more time. 

 

Challenge accepted??? 

 

This American Revolution 2.0 (AmRev 2.0) is now in endgame: We the People are being forced to choose a side that will determine the victor for the planet. The outcome will either be an awakened and free people enjoying unimaginable hidden technology and a world that works for everyone with no-one left out OR masked slavery of “non-essentials” to be shot (“vaccinated”), chipped, and eventually culled to serviceable numbers for psychopaths to control and parasitize as sheeple-slaves.

 

This 9-part article series will engage “Socrates” in interviews for his experience of enduring a 27-year civil war caused by his society’s rhetoric of freedom contrasted with his government’s hypocritical gangster empire. Even after been proved correct of his government’s OBVIOUS hypocrisy, Socrates could still not be heard, was tried for “corrupting the young” and “dishonoring the Gods,” and overwhelmingly voted by the public for execution rather than endure his voice.

 

Historians look to the future as much as the past. I research and document important slivers of history as best one can discern in the present to a relatively few Patriot colleagues, and with eyes for future generations placing the past in the context they will have: building Heaven on Earth as best All can imagine. 

 

Our series (*links added at end of each of the 9 points*): 

  1. Introduction: we really live in American Revolution 2.0 2020 under life and death consequences. (1 of 9 here)
  2. The US has been a lying, looting, illegal rogue state empire committing Wars of Aggression for over 200 years and counting. These invading Wars of Aggression have war-murdered ~30 million since WW2 and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men (and here). The wars are for resource control: natural and human. (*new article here*)
  3. Ongoing Bankster looting now has a global 1% owning more assets than the 99%. Our economic system is based on the criminal fraud that debt = money, an Orwellian-inversion of total evil. Leading Americans have pointed to public banking and monetary reform for nearly 300 years as obvious solutions to being looted annually in the trillions. (3 of 9 here)
  4. Corporate media and public education intentionally lie to literally “cover” these crimes centered in war and money to control global resources (natural and human). As a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, US History, World History, Economics, and also credentialed in Mathematics, I prove beyond any reasonable doubt that Americans have been massively, ongoingly, and criminally lied to. These are not careless and inconsequential errors, but intentional and game-changing lies of omission and commission. (4 of 9 here)
  5. The .01% evil imperialists assassinate real leaders who oppose them: President Kennedy, Robert Kennedy (who would have been President in 1968), Dr. King, and hundreds of others are proven by overwhelming evidence, including the King Family civil trial whose jury found the US government guilty of assassinating Martin. These assassinations continue to the present, including 2020 State of the Union film evidence (explore SOTU videos here and here at 36:30) of Democratic “leaders” and Vice President Pence planning to assassinate President Trump according to plausible  lip-reading from a professional. (5 of 9 here)
  6. The Covid “plandemic” has dozens of verifiable “official” lies and hypocrisies for Orwellian-illegal policies that any American should instantly reject while calling for independent factual explanations. Most Americans sense this; I account for some of this data (hereherehere). (6 of 9 here)
  7. Our .01% “leaders” engage in child trafficking. Independent journalists and researchers have compiled powerful documentaries to provide context to arrests of Epstein, Maxwell, and conviction of Weinstein (Fall Cabal and Out of Shadows documentaries herehere, and here with further documentaries. Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer’s 2-hour presentation on Pizza-gate here). (7 of 9 here)
  8. Q is a White House insider proven by coordination in timing and language between Q posts and Trump Tweets. Q has revealed Democratic and corporate media “leaderships” lies and crimes to remove President Trump, install dictatorial plandemic government, and hide crimes against children. (8 of 9 here)
  9. The most important historical context for human beings to embrace: Earth has had ancient advanced technological civilizations from ET involvement that seem to be the genesis of our current evil-bloodline .01% empire-class. That is, the war in the present is a continuation of evil alien invasion from the past: I challenge you to see the evidence for yourself and see if you have a more accurate conclusion. (9 of 9 here)

I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History (also credentialed in Mathematics), with all economic factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences (and here). I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.
