    Stacks of bricks suddenly appearing in Kenosha again. Guess which oligarchs are behind it?

    https://starfirecodes.substack.com/p/bricks-in-kenosha-again-pay-no-attention?r=hvqg2

    Let’s talk about the mysterious bricks surfacing in Kenosha….

    There are already calls of suspicious activity coming through the police scanner.

    Between 12 and 1 PM EST earlier today, a Kenosha officer checked a local alley way and verified there are "bricks everywhere." The audio begins here at the 1:11 mark.

    Hmm… preparing for the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict already, are we?

    This should all sound familiar because it’s how we got into this mess to begin with….

    In 2020, during the Kenosha riots when Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested, mysterious bricks were delivered. In fact, every single city where a riot broke out had stacks and stacks of bricks delivered, seemingly out of nowhere. In most places, security had been disabled so that no one could access security camera videos and see who delivered the bricks in stacks off of trucks on huge pallets.

    Naturally, if you happen to put this question in front of thousands of curious researchers who have fun working together and you ask, “Who is the Brick Wizard?” it’s basically like firing off a shot at the beginning of a race.

    Urged to “follow the bricks,” we dove right in….

    Who are the oligarchs behind the brick deliveries?

    Clue #1: It’s the same oligarchs behind all the civilization-destroying crap in our world today.

    Clue #2: The DOJ, FBI, CIA and NSA don’t want to investigate and discover the answer so they won’t. Who’s gonna make them? You? 😂

    Read the rest of the article to discover the names you already know.

    short term clever

    Yeah, that all makes sense.  I was wondering about that aerial surveillance.  Clearly if they "can't track down the bricks", then FBI and DHS are involved.

    I think this is all short-term-clever, but medium term...it will just wake everyone up.

    Someone took a model of repression that worked virtually perfectly under cover of darkness, at power level 2, focused on a small subset of the population, and has decided it will work just the same if not better with the power dialed up to 11, in the clear light of day, on literally everyone, all at once.

    "What could possibly go wrong?"

    Short term clever.  Or maybe they had no choice?  Populism was beginning to be a thing.  And there's the peak oil issue too.  Or maybe they were all just getting really old.  How old is Buffet?  91.  Soros: 91.  Kissinger: 98.  Queen of England: 95.  Rockefeller: [Died at 98].  Prince Philip [Died at 99].

    They sure live a long time.

    But not forever.

    ‘God bless you!’: Families cheer FLCCC doctor Dr. Paul Marik, suing hospital for iv****ctin ban

    https://dailyangle.com/articles/god-bless-you-see-families-cheer-doctor-suing-hospital-for-ivermectin-ban

    A physician who also is a medical school professor is suing a hospital for banning him from prescribing the drug ivermectin to his COVID-19 patients.

    Dr. Paul Marik of Eastern Virginia Medical School is under contract with Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, where he is the director of the ICU.

    On Thursday, he arrived at a Norfolk, Virginia, courthouse, where supporters cheered, chanted his name and held signs. One sign told of a husband now in ICU with COVID-19 who is being denied treatment with ivermectin and another of a husband who died.

    With his right hand on his heart, displaying gratitude, Marik was greeted with shouts of "God bless you Dr. Marik" and "God bless you St. Paul, you go!"

    The Biggest Picture

    It is hilarious.

    This video is in alignment with the talks given by physicist Dr. Tom Campbell of "My Big TOE" in print and Yutube.

    So. What have you got, Atheists?

    The headlines. A commentary.

    Time to bet Bet Big on fusion? Requires context. Hot fusion is a money-sucking dud.

    Warm Fusion emulates how nature really does it- and is already fully subscribed.

    Cold Fusion (Lattice Enabled Nuclear Reactions) beats hot fusion hands down. And the US Navy is invested. Ref: ICCF 17 which I attended.

    Cold fusion might be nudged (that word again), off the table by warm fusion; the SAFIRE project, but to my mind one does not necessarily preclude the other.

    They may find different niches.

    We were going off planet back in '69. (Anyone here remember that?) Kennedy was given an invitation by those who own the moon to visit, but not to make a habit of it.

    The trick is to beat the bejeebus out of Einstein's bent nothingness conjecture and discover that gravity is an epi phenomenon of voltage. Ref: "The Secrets of Antigravity" book Dr. Paul leviollet Ref: Townsend Brown's anti-gravity demonstrations to Admiral Rickover, in 1957.

    Electrical Engineer, Wal Thornhill proposes a structured electron model to account for gravity, although the details elude me.

    We do know that Big G, the gravitational "constant" wonders all over the shop, much like we would expect if the Earth is a charged body, subject to the vagories of the solar wind.

    Biden To Transfer Power To Kamala As Oldest US President Heads For First Physical

    From ZH: https://www.zerohedge.com/political/biden-heading-first-physical-president

    Update (0930ET): As President Biden heads for his first physical as president, The White House has issued a statement confirming that Kamala Harris will (briefly) become US President

    This morning, the President will travel to Walter Reed Medical Center for a routine physical.

    While he is there, the President will undergo a routine colonoscopy.

    As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia.

    The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.

    Later this afternoon, the White House will publicly release a written summary of the President's physical.

    The question is - will she relinquish that power?

    And

    The results of the physical will be made public, the White House has said. Biden was the oldest person ever sworn in as president. He is 78; he’s due to turn 79 tomorrow, Nov 20.

    The last medical assessment Biden released was in December 2019. His doctor, Kevin O’Connor declared the then-candidate “healthy” and “vigorous.”

    Biden colonoscopy

    He's kind of old for a colonoscopy unless there is reason for concern.  And what a wimp.  I've had eight so far with no sedation at all.

    Biden gets colonoscopy so doctors can study his brain

     

     

    "This morning, the President will travel to Walter Reed Medical Center for a routine physical.

    While he is there, the President will undergo a routine colonoscopy......

    ......Biden underwent surgery to repair a brain aneurysm in 1988 but the procedure was successful and he has not had reoccurrences, the report stated. Biden takes Nexium to help with occasional gastroesophageal reflux and several other medications for seasonal allergies and sinus congestion

    The Aliens want their gizmo back.

    They're tired of waiting.

    It's sort of a reverse implant.
