How far down the rabbit hole are we willing to go? What will we find when we get there?

*I mentioned a student getting into a heated exchange with a teacher over a MAGA hat, here is that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAe8mxvV1fU

**Here's info about the JFK speech I referenced & some excerpts: https://anonhq.com/the-speech-and-the-executive-order-that-got-us-president-john-f-kennedy-killed/

"The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free & open society... we are opposed around the world by a monolithic & ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence — on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day... It is a system which has conscripted vast human & material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific & political operations."

Thanks again everyone, 'Be Excellent to Each Other' out there!

Next, check out this Pew Research Center report from March 2018: http://www.pewinternet.org/2018/03/01/social-media-use-in-2018/

A more recent Pew study from September notes that 1 in 4 Americans has deleted the app from their mobile devices like I have: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/09/05/americans-are-changing-their-relationship-with-facebook/

This is a great article in Forbes from Jan. 2017 about social media’s effects on mental health: https://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2017/06/30/a-run-down-of-social-medias-effects-on-our-mental-health/#6dbe39302e5a

The Forbes article cites a study I found very interesting, about how Facebook makes users more depressed the more they check in during a single day: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0069841&mbid=synd_msnhealth

It also cites another article, which shows that stress and depression related to loneliness can have negative effects on our heart rate and cognitive function: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-athletes-way/201511/loneliness-perceived-social-isolation-is-public-enemy-no-1

I urge all of you to consider walking away from social media whenever you’re able, and filling that time by developing a skill or learning more about something you’re really interested in. We need to get out there and enjoy other human beings a little more, it’s good for us, I swear.

I’m grateful every day for my supporters, most especially my six amazing Patrons: David B., John K., Michael K., Sha’ul Y., Stephen M. and the lovely Susan C. I wouldn’t be able to do this without your support over at Patreon/2FingersBerben.

Sadly, I’m dealing with some personal losses and I might take the rest of the week to process. If I don't 'see' any of you before Thursday please know just how much I appreciate all of you for being on this journey with me. Not just my ‘Special Six,’ I’m truly grateful for each and every one of you for taking time out of your day to share your thoughts with me.

So if I can urge you all to do anything this week of Thanksgiving, please Be Excellent to Each Other. Appreciate one another, love each other— don’t let a chance to tell someone you love them slip away, you never know if it's the last opportunity you'll have to do so.

I recently spoke with a reporter from The Daily Dot about BitChute and the outcome was sadly very predictable: http://archive.is/ZVvUQ

I reached out to BitChute via Twitter and I have to hand it to whoever is manning the account today because this is great: "Sites like the Daily Dot don't care what's in the long term benefit of society just that they're losing market share to AltMedia. BitChute has already overtaken them in traffic this year and Styx is getting over 10m monthly views across platforms without compromising his views." BOOM.

Styx's response to this silliness can be viewed here: https://www.bitchute.com/video/7GK4LuAeOEo/

The recent events in Thousand Oaks serve as a painful reminder that our Veterans need our voices of support. Many of them could also use our help finding the mental health resources they need, even if they’re not sure how to ask.

HUGE thanks to YouTube viewer Kyles Isler for suggesting the VFW as an excellent resource. You can get information for yourself or someone else here: https://www.vfw.org/assistance/mental...

If you'd like to volunteer to help Veterans in your community the VFW can help you locate an opportunity here: https://www.vfw.org/community/communi...

Thanks Kyles!

The Veterans Crisis line can be reached 24/7/365 by calling 1-800-273-8255 then pressing 1, for the deaf/hard of hearing call 1-800-799-4889. You can also send a text to 838255 or chat online by visiting: https://www.veteranscrisisline.net

It’s raining liberal tears in the DC area today. I was a lifelong supporter of the Democratic Party, here's why I decided to Vote Red today. Get out there and #WalkTheVote everyone!

I strongly believe that if you take this #TrumpChallenge by following these two steps over the next week you won’t be voting for Democrats on November 6th.

*Please consider sharing this challenge far & wide and giving this video a thumbs up, that's the only way to get this message out there as unaffiliated, centrist, independent and conservative voices are being actively suppressed on almost all social media platforms.*

One last appeal for peace and nonviolence at the #WalkAway march tomorrow. I'm all over the place in this one, it's hard to put my thoughts on this together. There's just SO MUCH insanity in the country right now, I really want us all to work hard to keep things safe tomorrow but at the same time I completely understand the possibility that we may have to engage in self-defense. It's such a tricky situation, I'm ready for this 'Civil Cold War' to end and for Civility to begin!

I'll be streaming throughout the day tomorrow on YouTube, if you're supporting this event from home please remember to share as many posts from the march and rally that you see. The mainstream media is not going to cover this day accurately, we already can expect that.

My apologies, I really wanted to get that second video out today but I ran out of time so check back in with me on Sunday. Thanks everyone, please-oh-please be excellent to each other tomorrow!

With exactly one week to go until the #WalkAway Campaign marches on Washington I thought I’d attempt a response to a video that came out a couple weeks ago. No offense meant to the original artist as she seems perfectly lovely but I wanted to try and dispel some of the misinformation being spread out there.

Join me at the #WalkAway March on Washington next Saturday, October 27th, for information visit: www.walkawaymarch.com

**********************************************
A Great Time to #WalkAway:

No one should walk to their car late at night while on the phone
Depending where you live you might leave your windows closed
No one goes to bars with chaperones
Go do what you want, your life is your own

I use public transportation after 7pm
And feel fine since I’m carrying protection
You can go to the club just to dance with your friends
Don’t ever leave your drink or things unattended

It sure is a scary time to be alive
Can’t speak your mind out loud or online
Just voicing these opinions could get me fired
It’s so incredibly sad I even had to think twice

You can live in an apartment on any floor
But if the neighborhood’s bad maybe don’t answer the door
Stop blaming everyone, start acting of your own accord
No one makes you feel anything, ‘cause that choice is yours

American women can vote
Can buy a home of our own
Can get paid same as Rob
If we’re doing the same job

But it sure is a scary time for girls
And women in other countries ‘round the world
And it sure is a scary time for men
Can’t complain because they’re never the victim

Oh yeah— that’s right,
It’s not such a scary time for facts
They trump your feelings, words aren’t violent attacks
It’s time for us to come together and reject the left’s hate
The day to vote’s November 6 so let’s all Walk Away

Hey everyone, I’ve been getting so many questions about the upcoming #WalkAway March on Washington DC this October 27th. Here’s what we know so far about what to expect that weekend, including thoughts on timing and safety concerns.

The Friday before last I called into the Vince Daniels show to talk about my Walk Away story and the march, my call is at 36:25 and takes only a few minutes: https://soundcloud.com/kmet-1490-am/vince-daniels-10-5-18-hr-2?in=kmet-1490-am/sets/the-many-moods-of-vince

Additionally, Brandon Straka spoke with Vince this past Friday and it's a great interview! He initially comes on at 9:20 and the March comes up at 27:56.

If there’s anything positive to take from this Kavanaugh circus it’s that more people are waking up to the hypocrisy of the far-left. There are so many things about this issue to discuss, would love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below. Thanks for watching, try to be excellent to each other out there!

I never expected my own story to go viral and while the backlash was pretty intense the support was so incredible! My brother and I reconnected and plan to see each other this fall for the first time in six years, so stay strong everyone, great things can come of this.

I’ve been really inspired by Brandon Straka’s #WalkAway campaign, here’s my contribution to the movement...

It’s such a shame what’s happening to our country. I’ve seen this quote in several places recently and it resonates with me enough to try and paraphrase it here: if your love for your country hinges on who is president, then you don’t love your country.

I am so proud to be an American and have the right to sit here today and express these thoughts. I’ve tried to voice my concerns but it feels like such an all or nothing argument coming from the left. To vocalize any kind of dissenting opinion that doesn't fall in lock/step with “the war for social justice” gets us labeled a nazi, bigot, or some other kind of racist— sometimes by our own families.

So here's my contribution to this movement. From one lifelong Democrat, here to say No More. I’m nowhere near Conservative, nowhere near Republican, but I’m still breaking up with my party. No more rabid cognitive dissonance, no more exaltation of victimhood-- I’ve chosen to #WalkAway.
