Biden admin is all FAKE: Children in NASA space video with Kamala Harris are ACTORS

Grinning school-age children who took part in a NASA YouTube video about space exploration with Kamala Harris have been revealed to be child actors.

The ‘Get Curious with Vice President Harris’ video was filmed in August and tweeted out by the Vice President on October 7 to celebrate World Space Week.

It appeared to viewers that the children she was with were all normal kids.

However it has now been revealed that they are paid actors who auditioned by sending in a monologue and three questions they would ask a world leader.

A puppet uses actors to propagandize her likeability in a video unironically produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment of Canada. ABN

TEXAS: Executive Order Prohibiting Vaccine Mandates By Any Entity

Governor Greg Abbott today issued an executive order stating that no entity in Texas can compel receipt of a COVID-19 vaccination by any individual, including an employee or consumer, who objects to such vaccination for any reason of personal conscience, based on a religious belief, or for medical reasons, including prior recovery from COVID-19.

Good way to put it. First Amendment religious freedoms should include “personal conscience” since there is no clear line between this and religion. Buddhism is very much a philosophy and a religion, no clear line. Also, Kristi Noem get your ass in gear and do this for SD. Ignore the money or give it back and prove you have a “personal conscience.” ABN

Covid vaxxes do not allow the small changes that promote co-existence with the virus because they remove these variants from the milieu

@EthicalSkeptic @BrendanEich @NickHudsonCT @lalasugarloaf

One hypothesis is that much of Asia/Oceania had been exposed to a previous SARS variant. This being the actual reason that rates of infection were so low, not lockdowns and masks.
1/

Now we may be seeing turnover where Western countries have had a much more aggressive recent pandemic and have residual resistance to a more recent SARS strain, closer in lineage to Delta.
2/

If true, we will see vicious outbreaks of the more contagious variants moving through populations naive to current variants(in Asia/Oceania now being exposed). If this pattern is true:
1) The pandemic will become endemic moving in waves between unsynchronized populations.
3/

2) This will prove that the new mRNA vaccines cannot ever be expected to eradicate the virus unless we find non-mutating epitopes for which antibodies can be developed.
3) Broad spectrum immunity(natural) may confer much broader protection in this pattern.
4/

The theory would be that variant evolution would partially escape not totally escape broad spectrum resistance meaning cases may be more mild as the variants emerge than with total vaccine breakthrough.
5/

4) If this endemic wave pattern is established we would suspect that current vaccine strategies would need to be changed:
a) the current narrow spectrum vaccines will induce rapid evolution triggering a rapid never ending series of related pandemics.
6/

b) rapid escape evolution increases the probability of worse variants and extinguishes variants that may be more mild and currently somewhat protective.
7/

c) in normal evolution no preference is made between large and small mutations but with vaccines, the mutations that confer survival become much more important and require complete escape.
8/

As a matter of fact, vaccines never allow the small changes that might promote co-existence with virus, because the vaccines remove these variants from the milieu.
9/

5) It is time to consider strategy modifications:
-rapid development of antibody treatments as variants develop
-encourage evolution of co-existence with the virus
-concentrate on treating effects of the virus to mitigate damage through therapeutics
10/

-stop protecting low risk populations to extinguish outbreaks as fast as possible. [also protect them from needless, counterproductive exposure to vax harm. ABN]

We do not normally see these patterns in attenuated virus vaccines, because they are broad spectrum vaccines.
11/

When we focus on vaccines that narrowly extinguish the current dominant strain, we encourage big mutations and total escape.
12/

The narrowly focused vaccines have the effect of destroying the virus that could become safe and we are faced with new virus strains with major changes. We need to rethink this current approach, immediately.

Manifesto: New axioms of linguistics, philosophy, and psychology are much needed

The sciences or fields of inquiry mentioned in the headline above need companions based on different premises. These companions might be called speechology, thinkology, and beology.

Speechology would be founded on the axioms that we speak and that the proximate impetus and deep impetus of almost all speech acts are profoundly important, complex, consequential, revealing, and even enlightening. In scientific terms, they are profoundly satisfying to observe and understand and much follows from observing and understanding them.

Something similar can be said about thinkology and beology or a fourth science of actology.

Moving these fields of inquiry away from the fields named in the headline above will give them a fresh start, allowing them to make new discoveries based on new observations, practices, insights, and conclusions.

For example, some of this work has already been done in speechology, the results of which include and inform the fields of thinkology and beology. In addition to the axioms that “we speak” and that “the impetus of speech acts is complex and revealing,” we also have the discovered and richly explored the axiom that “interpersonal speech acts often are seriously misunderstood and not corrected” thus leading to the axiom that touches upon thinkology and beology that “as a result, our thinking and acting are often profoundly in error leading to massive snowballing and suffering from then on.”

The above paragraph makes several nontrivial statements based on demonstrable facts derived from a copious study of speechology. This study has been done using FIML rules and procedures. The difficulty in sharing the knowledge gained through FIML practice is it is based on the interpersonal communications of two unique individuals. This does not make it less scientific. This makes it a precise tool, akin to a microscope or measuring device. Other individuals can use this same precise tool to see and measure their speechologies.

Virtually all people will initially understand a speechology inquiry such as FIML in terms of the linguistics, philosophy, and psychology they already know. This will hamper rapid understanding of what FIML is and what it does because real FIML data will all be fundamentally unique to the individuals doing it. Yes, many insights will be generalizable but the tendency to generalize will immediately lead away from the precision of the FIML tool, thus dulling its resolution and accuracy. This is a very important distinction. It is this distinction that gives FIML its power and that calls for a new name for this field of inquiry.
