    Adventures with Purpose:

    THIS EPISODE – Episode 2… March 19, 2022, we began our case investigation into James “Jimmy” Amabile’s case meeting with family and listening as they lay out all of the circumstances leading up to Mr. Amabile’s disappearance 19-years earlier.

    Amabile, 38, vanished on the afternoon of Dec. 4, 2003, after leaving his home in Folsom, PA to go pick up his two daughters from a babysitter in his 2002 green Ford Explorer.

    Jimmy had overslept and called the babysitter at 5:13 p.m. to say that he was running a few minutes late.

    This 4 part series documents Adventures With Purpose’s search for James Amabile, following the clues left behind, from a cell phone ping, last phone call, information from his family about insulin levels, and knowing that James woke up in a panic that he was late picking up his daughters from the babysitters, all playing a role in leading to the discovery of where James Amabile and his SUV had gone missing in the river 19-years earlier.

    “Believe all women except Amber Heard.”

    Those were the words of comedian Chris Rock, who used his latest show in London as an opportunity to weigh in on the US$50m Johnny Depp v Amber Heard defamation trial. “What the fuck is she on?” Rock said about Heard. “She shit in his bed! She’s fine, but she’s not shitting fine. She shit in his bed! Once you shit in someone’s bed, you just guilty of everything. What the fuck is going on there? Wow.

    Netflix Layoffs Continue Amid Ongoing Corporate Chaos

    Netflix is having a hard time right now. Or rather, it’s going through a transition period. Better yet, entering a new phase.

    Today, the streaming service laid off 150 employees, comprising about 1.3% of the company’s 11,300 or so total workers…

    In April, Netflix released its 2022 first quarterly earnings report, which revealed it had lost 200,000 subscribers. That number drop was the first in a decade for the company. Then, following the earnings report, the streaming platform’s stock plummeted.

    I have always been a lover of cafes. But the fun is rapidly disappearing. Many cafes can no longer afford any heating. I sat in one the other day, shivered for a while, and then put on my coat, hat and scarf while I drank my coffee.

    Most of the doctors and scientists who have told the truth about covid-19 and the associated treatment programmes, and who have been maligned in the last two years by garbage distributors such as Wikipedia and Google, are male, white and over 60 years of age. Is this clear proof that the campaign against truth-tellers is sexist, racist and ageist? Why aren’t Wikipedia and Google being investigated by the authorities?

    Hospitals in the UK are making it difficult for relatives and friends to visit patients in hospital. Is this because they are ashamed of the fact that hospitals are dirty and unsuitable for caring for the sick? Are they worried that visitors will notice how badly our hospitals are run?

    Since we moved to London I find that the traffic is truly scary – and I have not yet found the courage to attempt to drive into the city itself. Still, the rules in the newly revised woke Highway Code mean that within a month or two there will be hardly any cars on the roads. There are 1001 ways to lose your driving licence these days and it’s difficult not to believe that this is the plan. Maybe someone from Extinction Rebellion wrote the new Highway Code? I wouldn’t bet against the idea.

    The shortage of Hormone Replacement Therapy in the UK will save thousands of lives. HRT is a dangerous and unnecessary treatment which was devised to make money for drug companies. The women demanding it, taking it and promoting it need to do some serious research into the side effects.

    In the UK it has been suggested that people over the age of 65 shouldn’t be allowed to vote. This is nonsense. It is people who read The Guardian or pay the BBC licence fee who should not be allowed to vote.

    A clearly decerebrate blogger recently suggested that since my predictions about this fake pandemic have been accurate for two years this proves that I must be a Rothschild.

    Looks like Brian Craig has belatedly switched his allegiance to Kathy Barnette at the final hour.

    I had a long rant on this topic, yesterday. Won’t be the last.

    We have to forget terms that are supposed to be associated with those on the centre-right of politics such as:
    Republican, Tories, Liberal/National (in Australia) and so on. Whether they are politicians, media commentators or any other sector.

    There are now two groups:

    1/ Patriots: Those who hold and practise Conservative values and care about what is best for their country.

    2/ Traitors: Those who pretend to be whatever is beneficial to them. They will support the cause or person or party or whatever else because it will help them in some way. They will sit on the right or left or centre, and switch their support to suit their goals.

    The Pennsylvania polls to select the GOP Senate nominee is going to mark a major point for Patriots.

    I think Trump did a great deal of good for the US and the MAGA movement by setting it in motion, and also during his term in office. But, sadly, there are three problems, here.

    i/ Trump has a very big ego.
    ii/ He has bad advisers.
    iii/ He has poor judgement.

    Those flaws resulted in some big mistakes during his Presidency. Now, he has hurt the true patriots by supporting a traitor. There are many who are voting based on Trump’s endorsement, because they blindly follow him. Whether he is supporting Mehmet Oz because of some trade-off (what is it?) or because he has been asked to do so by someone else (who is it?), is a betrayal of those who respect him and hold the true Conservative values.

    Kathy Barnette has had such savage attacks on her from some quarters, especially Hannity. Even Mark Levin has jumped in with saying she will not win the general election.

    The enemy is not outside the gates. It is within.

    Trump is now an establishment politician. All he wants is to win 2024 at any cost and avenge those Republicans who did not stand by him. It is not about MAGA. It is about Making Trump President Again.

    Of the three leading Penn candidates, Kathy is probably the only Patriot. She could have picked up the nomination quite easily. But she has been attacked not just by Hannity but also by Trump.

    If we look around the country, there are several people who have joined the Freedom-friendly parties or running as independents. They have stood up against the Covid tyranny and are prepared to do something by getting involved in politics.

    LONDON — U.K. inflation soared to a 40-year high of 9% in April as food and energy prices spiraled, official figures revealed Wednesday, escalating the country’s cost-of-living crisis. Consumer prices rose by 2.5% month-on-month, fractionally below expectations for a 2.6% climb in a Reuters poll of economists, which had also projected a 9.1% annual increase. The 9% rise in the consumer price index is the highest since records began in their current form in 1989, outstripping the 8.4% annual rise posted in March 1992 and well ahead of the 7% seen in March of this year.

    UK inflation soared to 9% in April – its highest level for more than 40 years – as the rising cost of gas and electricity pushed household energy bills to record levels.…

    Bank of England policymakers are expected to react to the figures at their meeting in June by increasing interest rates for the fourth time since last December to 1.25%.

    However, opinions are divided over how much further the central bank will go to drive up borrowing costs should the economy contract in the summer and autumn. James Smith, an economist at ING, said it was likely the bank would raise rates twice before pausing…

    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2022/may/18/uk-inflation-soars-to-highest-level-in-more-than-40-years

    So the central bank will pause the borrowing rate somewhere around 1.5%, thinking that will do the job in halting inflation that is near double digits, with a slowdown or recession to do the rest for them.

    If we take these central bank policymakers as genuine, they clearly had no idea of the consequences of zero rates, combined with Debt monetisation (QE). Now they have no idea about cleaning up their own mess.

    Labor’s Jim Chalmers and Katy Gallagher unveil costings
    with campaign pledges adding $7.4b to budget deficit

    Labor will add $7.4 billion to the budget deficit if elected after the shadow treasurer and finance minister unveiled the opposition’s costings.

    Anthony Albanese had come under increased pressure in recent days to unveil his party’s election costings and whether it would include greater deficits than the Coalition.

    And on Thursday Labor tabled a “modest” $7.4 billion difference with the Coalition’s March budget with $18.9 billion in spending offset by $11.5 billion in budget improvements over four years.

    Monkeypox:
    What we know about the smallpox-like virus spreading in the UK, Portugal and Spain

    Monkeypox is a relative of smallpox, a disease that was eradicated in 1980, but is less transmissible, causes milder symptoms and is less deadly.

    The illness typically lasts for two to four weeks and symptoms can appear anywhere from five to 21 days after infection.

    Monkeypox symptoms usually begin with a mix of fever, headaches, muscle aches, backache, chills, exhaustion, and swollen lymph nodes.

    This latter symptom is typically what helps doctors distinguish monkeypox from chickenpox or smallpox, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

    Once you have a fever, the key feature of monkeypox, a nasty rash, tends to develop one to three days later, often starting on the face and then spreading to other parts of the body.

    Labor leader Anthony Albanese clashes with media

    Anthony Albanese has clashed with journalists in a fiery press conference after they fought back against a decision to prevent them from travelling with the Labor leader to Brisbane on Thursday…

    Instead of travelling with Mr Albanese and documenting his interactions with voters, the journalists were initially told they would be sent to a press conference with the shadow treasurer and finance minister who would give a briefing on the party’s costings.

    But the decision was reversed following backlash from the travelling media, with Mr Albanese coming under intense questioning from Sky News Australia reporter Jonathan Lea who grilled the Labor leader about why the press pack were set to be ditched in Canberra.

    In dirtying up news, I present you Nova Peris. The Hun:

    ‘Essendon boss Xavier Campbell has been blamed for the resignation of Olympic gold medallist and ex federal senator Nova Peris from the Long Walk Foundation board.
    A leaked email shows Campbell has been accused of treating Peris – the first Aboriginal to win Olympic gold and first indigenous woman elected to federal parliament – with “utter disrespect” over plans for the Bombers to house the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sports Hall of Fame at the club’s base.
    “My decision is due to the Essendon Football Club CEO Xavier (Campbell) and the disrespectful treatment I have endured by him”, Peris wrote in her resignation email.
    “The utter disrespect I have been shown with this project is nothing short of disgraceful and I find Xavier’s leadership extremely poor which is a sad reflection on the Essendon Football Club as an organisation which is why I have had to remove myself from the board due to the association with EFC.
    “No wonder our Aboriginal kids continually struggle, when people like myself get so disrespected and used up by the systems. It is my hope that in time, the AISHoF will have a new home somewhere independent of the EFC because they are acting like they own our history and they most certainly do not.”
    Peris, 51, said she had lobbied to secure millions of dollars in funding for the project since 2018.
    But she felt she had been benched by Campbell and the Bombers, despite Colin Tatz – who started the project – putting Peris in charge when he died in 2019.
    It’s understood a dispute over who would pay for a bronze statue of Peris to be transported from Federation Square to Tullamarine to promote the Indigenous Hall of fame was one example of Peris feeling disrespected.’

    Methinks the lady doth protest too much. Used by the systems she said. Isn’t that what Ginger Gillard did by parachuting her into the Senate, where she did what Patty shot at? And why bring up Aboriginal kids? FMD what a slag

    ‘A cast member on the 2014 run of The Rocky Horror Show has told a court the woman Craig McLachlan is now suing for defamation used to show “photos of her poo” to people on set.
    McLachlan is suing his former co star Christie Whelan Browne, the ABC and Fairfax Media for defamation in the New South Wales Supreme Court.
    The 56 year-old claims the media companies and Ms Whelan Browne defamed him by publishing stories in January 2018 he says falsely portrayed him as having harassed and bullied female performers in the 2014 run of the musical. He denies the allegations.
    Australian actor and singer Brendan Irving, who played the role of Rocky during the 2014 run of the show, told the jury Ms Whelan Browne was “argumentative” with the director during rehearsals – a trait he found uncommon during production.
    He told the court Ms Whelan Browne would also seek to show cast members photos on her phone during the production.
    “She was going through a phase of taking photographs off her poo and showing it to the cast.” Mr Irving told the court.’

    ‘Trans and gender diverse staff at Coles will be entitled to up to 10 days or paid “gender affirmation” leave.
    Gender affirmation, or gender transition, involves a trans person taking steps to feel more socially or physically align with the gender they feel they are internally.
    It often involves updating names, pronouns and physical presentation to better reflect their chosen gender. Trans employees at Coles will now be paid to undertake this process under changes the supermarket chain says are important steps to promoting LGBTQI+ inclusion.

    THE .9 society a.k.a. USGS strikes again. I was expecting them to do this.

    I’ve been watching this unfold over the last couple of hours. Dutch gave a forecast for a big 7 plus quake to strike and it did south of New Zealand at 7.3, but not on the spot he was forecasting. Energy wave went south and not west. That’s ok. He got the mag right, not the location.

    So it went from 7.3 to 6.8 to 7.1 to 6.9 How convenient when you have a tree lopper / arborist making these .Gov clowns look like fools. You can forecast quakes, he’s good at it and the overpaid .Gov pigs do not like it at all.

    So 6.9 it is just to make Dutch look wrong. This crap from the USGS and affiliates has been going on for years.

    With that aside, he has been in and out with updates on Twitch.

    He may come back on before midnight, our time.
