Would you list and give a brief description of free speech websites? What is the best replacement for Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram in particular? Also others that don't lean Left? Other than VAERS, is there anywhere that compiles a list of side effects to the Covid vaccine? Do you think there is less trust in the government now than in many years? Do you think money is a big factor in the push to vaccinate the world? How do you look at RussiaGate? Do you think anyone "in the know" will ever write a book giving an account of Jeffrey Epstein's escapades, in particular with well known wealthy clients? How do you foresee the world in 10 years? Do you think people will become more involved with robots & move further away from contact with individuals? Do you think the world would be a better place if the internet had never been invented? Would young people fight in defense of our country if we were attacked? Would women be more likely to take up arms than men? How can you know the latest gung-ho "gut health" importance is not a fad or something pushed by those with their own motives? How do you determine whether statistics or political polls or health polls are fairly documented?

What is the complete story about the illegal's coming into our country? Once they are across the border how are they processed? Does the U.S. have to give them asylum? How is it determined what happens to them? Where do they go? Who takes care of them? If they are released does the government give them housing, food, jobs etc.? Are there organizations that take care of them or do they become part of the homeless population?

All we hear is so many came across the border or so many were dropped off and that's all. What is the complete story????????

I would appreciate your thoughts on "Believing" --particularly fanaticism. I feel that is a critical problem with Humans, their cultures, religions, governments, etc. How can we change the eternal cycle [or pendulum] that has burdened the Race throughout history?

Here is some 'food' for your thoughts: Following is a sobering –perhaps even scary-- quote from Henry Ibsen in "The Ghosts":

"It is not what we have inherited from our father and mother that 'walks' in us. It is all sorts of dead ideas, and lifeless old beliefs, and so forth. They have no vitality, but they cling to us all the same, and we cannot shake them off. Whenever I take up a newspaper, I seem to see the ghosts gliding between the lines. There must be ghosts all the country over, as thick as the sands of the sea. And then we are, one and all, so pitifully afraid of the light…"

Or, in more modern terms, here's a quote from former President Kennedy:

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie –deliberate, contrived and dishonest– but the myth –persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”


> Believe something is true because it can be analyzed, substantiated &/or replicated.

> Believe something is true because one feels, thinks or supposes it to be true.

Elon Musk, I think Elon will keep his word and free speech will be written again?

In my truckers day I drove with the attitude, lead, follow or get the hell out of my way.

I read your excellent articles.

I know you don’t give a shit about my thoughts. Have a great day.

I'm interested in your take on the political power of the LGBTQAI+ in proportion to the actual number of people in this group, and why they get such a big media voice. I'm interested in what BLM has actually accomplished, and what its most vocal proponents are saying now. Gun control seems to be ever green with Democrat politicians, do any of the executive and legislative fixes they propose actually solve a problem, or actually make things worse? About the upcoming end of Title 42 to turn back hordes at the southern border- can anyone then make sense of Biden bowing to the CDC recomendations on masking Americans because it's still not safe? Thanks, John

Another topic I'd like your thoughts on are how plausible or realistic do you think it is that a parallel society can come to fruition before the progressive left brings the world to end? I love that Tim Pool, The Daily Wire, Prager U, Glen Beck, Jordan Peterson and Gab are throwing a lot of resources and money at building systems of news media, entertainment, education, and commerce that are founded upon conservative and capitalist ideals. Even Ron de Santis is showing the way for Republicans to return to a Republic form of government. And Substack is also giving voice to many, like you, who have been shunned or cancelled by the legacy media.

Thanks for the opportunity, John. I'd like your take on whether you believe we, i.e. the US, and the world in general, are experiencing a unique time in history, a new paradigm, or if we are simply going through a cyclical swing of the pendulum of extremes? Humans have been through periods of extreme leftism and conservatism throughout our civilized history which is more or less encapsulated by the oft cited quote “Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.”― G. Michael Hopf, Those Who Remain. One big question I have is do you believe the New World Order will come to pass?
