This first book of my space opera series was suppose to tell the story of Zephyrinus Zapatas' rise to knighthood while simultaneously relaying the history of The Holy Terran Empire. While it started out well enough, the middle section was turning out to be unwieldy and clunky, weighed down with too many long blocks of … Continue reading Writer’s Update
The Attached Video Is Well Worth The 30 Minute Investment.
The above video is spectacular in its exposé of the truth about the pandemic – clearly the Irish Government is no different from the governments of the UK in its crackdown on the civil liberties of the people of Ireland. In every respect, Dave Cullen’s video is first class. Supported by facts and figures, he confirms what we’ve discussed on this blog many times, that this pandemic is, in fact, a “scamdemic”, engineered by the “powers-that-be” who want to achieve a de-populated, “greener” world – by fair means or foul. Bribery seems to have been one method used to get world governments to impose their Covid-19 panic and restrictions. It’s by no means unusual for conditions to be attached to loans, of course, so the term “bribe” is likely to be rejected on that basis.

Carter Flannigan hadn’t apologized for posting it. And Jazmine Hernandez hadn’t heard from him in two days.
She tried texting him again: “Carter, it’s Jazz. Really worried about you.” This time she didn’t call him “hon” or punctuate her message with a little heart. He’d have to know that meant she was super concerned . . . wouldn’t he?
