AMA? BITFD!

By Ben Hunt | November 24, 2020 | 14 Comments

The American Medical Association is not a charitable organization.

The American Medical Association is not an educational organization.

The American Medical Association is a tax-exempt hedge fund and licensing corporation, designed from the ground up to enrich its executives and serve its own bureaucratic interests.

Burn. It. The. Fuck. Down.

The Grifters, chapter 1 – Kodak

By Ben Hunt | July 30, 2020 | 15

We’ve been assaulted by three brutal grifts in just the past week … three smacks from Bobo and his bag of oranges … each deserving of an Epsilon Theory note.

Here’s chapter 1 – the ludicrous crony capitalism of the US government giving Kodak $765 million for “pharmaceutical supply production”.

The Grifters, Chapter 2 – N95 Masks

By Ben Hunt | August 11, 2020 | 10

I don’t think I have the words to communicate just how screwed up our PPE distribution system is in this country, or what a profound betrayal it is for our government to support this perverse system of personal greed and corporate ambivalence in exchange for campaign soundbites and photo ops.

But I’m gonna try.

The Grifters, Chapter 3 – Election Prediction

By Ben Hunt | November 9, 2020 | 31

Polls create the plays. Election models create the score. Fivey Fox and “Nate Silver” announce the game. All to create engagement with a diversified media corporation.

No one understands how to create and sell a spectator sport better than Disney.

Fell on Black Days

By Ben Hunt | October 5, 2020 | 26

2020 has awakened us to the Black Days constructed while we slept.

Now we act, and not just to avoid the worst excesses of the Trumpist clownshow or the Socialist lunacies.

Now we change the entire freakin’ world.

For ourselves, yes. For our children, even more.

The Projection Racket, Pt. 2

By Rusty Guinn | September 28, 2020 | 22

The Projection Rackets will say that the solution to two-party dominance and the erosion of political self-determination is, like everything else, is to vote. Express yourself! Don’t you believe in democracy?

They are wrong. We, the people, CAN fix this. And if we want it enough, we will.

The Welding Shut of the American Mind

By Ben Hunt | September 21, 2020 | 31

The closing of the American mind is evolving into its next stage: the welding shut of the American mind.

What’s the difference between closing and welding shut? A closed door can be opened. A welded shut door cannot. We can’t save the minds already lost. We can only prevent our OWN minds from being welded shut.

And we can. Together.

The Projection Racket, Pt. 1

By Rusty Guinn | September 14, 2020 | 23

Some of us are uncomfortable with BITFD, and that’s OK. Small-c conservatives should be uncomfortable. Small-l liberals should be uncomfortable.

They should also get on board.

This is a series about why.

Mailbag – Lucifer’s Hammer Edition

By Ben Hunt | September 11, 2020 | 8

It’s been a full year since I wrote my last Mailbag note, which is kinda pathetic.

Well, better late than never. Reader comments and emails following our publication of Lucifer’s Hammer have been amazing, and it would be a disservice to the Pack if I didn’t collect some of them here. Enjoy!
