A lot of people asked me why I posted about ignoring the Ukrainian/Russian war.

I don't know war, but I do know media, and everything about how the war is being covered is sending up major red flags to me.

Two quick examples:
1. Hero stories popup immediately, that end up not being true.

The 13 guards telling the Russian naval ship to fuck off (turns out they surrendered), the "Ghost of Kyiv" (doesn't seem to be true), the sunflower seed story, etc...

MOST telling, media runs them uncritically.
2. The biggest weird thing to me: no one stopped buying oil/gas from Russia.

Germany said they will keep buying.

US State Dept went so far as to say, EXPLICITLY, that sanctions are designed to NOT stop the flow of gas.

What? Those exports are 30% of the Russian economy.
I have no doubt that real Ukrainians civilians are dying and suffering on the ground, and that sucks.

But do these actions seem like the actions of warring states?


In the American media, it seems like a spectacle put on to either distract or "manufacture consent."
I'm not going to fall for it.

The primary power media--and it's masters--have over us is our attention.

I choose to not give it to them (yes trolls, aside from writing this, lol).

Today I'm feeding my cows, going to BJJ and being with my family.
For the same conclusion from an actual military combat vet, see this thread:

And for those who want proof the Snake Island soldiers surrendered, the UK ministry of defense seems to even admit it:

When former CIA dudes tell you things are weird, man...shit is WEIRD:

*logs onto Twitter*

*Sees thousands of @ and total chaos in the mentions*

*logs out of Twitter*

Here's a pretty incredible thread with all kinds of pretty clear propaganda:

If you don't pay attention to current events (I envy you, and am trying to be more like you 🤣):

Looks like the Supreme Court will drop the decision overturning Roe today.

IF that happens--I would avoid cities.

If you cannot avoid a city, I'd be strapped and ready.

The people I know who track these things are throwing up the same red flags they did right before the Antifa/BLM riots in 20.

Obviously I hope they're wrong, but they believe that when/if that decision drops overturning Roe, cities will be unsafe for a period of time.

B/c its Twitter: This is NOT my comment on the potential for Roe to be overturned. If I ever talk about that, it won't be on Twitter, thats just asking for trouble. 😂

This is just me telling you what I have heard that I find credible.

Do with the info what you want.

We couldn't find a school that was a healthy and safe place for our kids to learn...so we got like-minded families together and started our own.


Our "Waldorf style" school is now under construction (pic below) on acreage in Dripping Springs.
We hired an incredible headmaster who is attracting some of the best Waldorf teachers I've ever met.

One of the most common questions I get is "How did you do that?"
Once we're up and running I might get the Headmaster with me and do a webinar to explain exactly how we did this (it was mostly him and the other families that did it).

I know this is easy to say, but I promise this is not as hard you think.

The thread below got a valid question:

"What were the main issues he found contradictions about?"

There were several about the bias of the American media, but the main one, the one that he brain froze on, was "Why this war?"

Here's (basically) how it went:
He was emphatic that this was a humanitarian disaster and Ukrainian people were dying.

I agreed, and validated that concern.

It's real and awful.

I asked him about foreign wars in the past few decades. Brutal ones, like the wars in Yemen, Bosia, Somalia, Rwanda, etc.
To his credit, he admitted he didnt really care or show any support for those.

I also asked if the people in those countries were any less deserving of care of concern.

Of course not, he said.

I asked, "Why are you so concerned about this war specifically?"

A friend mine jumped instantly from Covid hysteria to Ukrainian hysteria.

Literally changed his avatar from "Get Vaccinated" to "I stand with Ukraine."

I SO wanted to say, "You just mindlessly believe everything you see on the TV don't you?"

That wouldn't help. 

What did:
First I asked "Why do you believe this?"

And I listened.

I truly listened, with no interruptions, and was open what he said as I tried to understand his reasoning.

I even repeated his reasoning back to him until he agreed I got it.
Then, I asked questions.

Genuine questions, from a place of curiosity.

After a few minutes of questions--just questions, no arguing--he started to trip up on his contradictions.

I did not play "gotcha."

Instead, once the contradictions were obvious, I asked:
