Real Value, by Robert Gore

Form-Oil Sprayer Prototype

And now for something completely different.

Is it still possible for a business to make money the old-fashioned way, by offering superior products at competitive prices? On my day job, I’m the CEO of fouRy, Inc., or 4Ry. Our company has turned the quantum discoveries of Dr. Arnold Kelly into spraying technologies that not only improve the efficiency and economics of a variety of spray applications, but also reduce environmental and health risks.

Dr. Arnold Kelly

The StartEngine online equity crowdfunding platform allows individuals an opportunity to invest in 4Ry and Dr. Kelly’s revolutionary technologies (startengine.com/4ry-sprays). Dr. Kelly received his Ph.D. from Cal Tech and was a full professor at Princeton’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He has devoted much of his career to developing Charge Injected Precision Spraying™, or ChIPS™. His patented technology injects negative electric charge into a fluid before it leaves the nozzle, the Spray Triode Atomizer™. The like-charged droplets repel each other, so the spray provides its own propulsion. No mechanical assistance or external air pressure is necessary

ChIPS has a low power requirement but puts out a high-powered spray. The charged droplets seek the grounded target, much the same way lightning seeks the earth, the ultimate ground. The spray quickly coats the entire target, including irregular surfaces. ChIPS minimizes aerosol drift and over-spray, which economizes on the fluid used. It also reduces worker safety risks and soil and groundwater contamination. ChIPS offers clear-cut economic and environmental benefits in a variety of spraying applications.

Charging fluid droplets opens up other doors. Independent third-party testing has established that charge-injected distilled water droplets from 4Ry’s prototype sprayer will kill bacteria. Imagine turning distilled water into a disinfectant. Further work is necessary to determine the full range of charged water applications and its lethality to other microorganisms such as viruses and spores, but we are excited by the possibilities.

4Ry Distilled Water Sprayer Prototype

4Ry has operated on a financial shoestring for the last six years as we moved Dr. Kelly’s technologies from laboratory to prototypes. Now we’re ready for the next stage—commercialization. This will require greater funding. A Regulation Crowdfunding, or CF, exemption has been created in U.S. securities laws that allows investors to invest in newer businesses seeking capital, without the red tape and accredited investor net-worth requirements of traditional Initial Public Offerings.

StartEngine is conducting our online crowdfunding campaign. The platform has raised more than $540 million for startups and has over 800,000 potential investors. Kevin O’Leary, Mr. Wonderful of Shark Tank fame, is an investor, advisor, and paid spokesman. For more information about StartEngine, see their website at startengine.com.

Securities regulations prevent us from advertising the terms of 4Ry’s offering on Straight Line Logic. Those terms, plus extensive information about 4Ry, its technology, accomplishments, finances, personnel, future plans, and the competitive landscape in which it operates are all on 4Ry’s campaign page on StartEngine. Early bird investors and those who make larger investments in our crowdfunding should check out the details on bonus shares. The campaign page also has the risk factors, of which a potential investor should be fully aware. The link to that page is: startengine.com/4ry-sprays.

Surveying the current investment environment, many alternative media commentators recommend real, tangible assets, including essential provisions and precious metals. I don’t disagree with those recommendations, but I’d also suggest putting an intangible asset in your portfolio that historically has generated incalculable value and is the cornerstone for many other asset values: intellectual property.

4Ry’s value derives from the intellectual property developed by Dr. Kelly. He is a named inventor on 20 patents. 4Ry owns the key ChIPS patent, we have filed a patent for the distilled water sprayer, and we will file many more. All of Arnold’s innovations may not work out, but they don’t have to for our company to be profitable. If a few work out we should be fine. That was my calculation when I invested in 2016, when I became first a consultant and then a vice president at the company, and when I agreed to serve as CEO in 2020. I saw it as an investment of money, time, and commitment in developing invaluable intellectual property. See the campaign page for more.

Intellectual property doesn’t just happen, it requires investment and development. Most of Arnold’s innovations come from the amazing lab in the basement of his house. We intend to move him to an upgraded lab and build out a team of technicians and engineers to commercialize his technologies. They will be on the receiving end of a massive knowledge transfer, what we call the Downloading Arnold’s Brain Project. We also intend to erect a legal fortress around our intellectual property. None of this comes cheap, but now that we have prototypes of potential commercial products we can seek public investment.

I have never solicited donations on SLL or run a fund-raising campaign for the site. I can pay for groceries, but 4Ry needs investment now. I can’t guarantee you’ll make money. As with all investments you could lose every penny. The beauty of crowdfunding is nobody has to bet the ranch. You have a chance to make money, you can fully evaluate and limit the risk, and you can keep your investment in your comfort zone.

4Ry’s Campaign Page Video

I can say with complete certainty that you’ve never seen a company like 4Ry. We are a throwback to the days of brilliant inventors and bold entrepreneurs. 4Ry has little in common with committee-driven, publicly traded corporations. We won’t be a cash-burn machine so beloved by Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and the venture capital community. We keep our expenses low and we aim to make money, sooner rather than later. Our technology is understandable (it has to be if I got involved) and fascinating. Our story is compelling. Please check out our StartEngine campaign page.

Thanks,

Robert

Where does 4Ry’s name come from?

Ry is the scientific notation for the Rydberg unit of energy, 13.6 electron volts (13.6 eV). That is the energy required to ionize hydrogen. ChIPS imparts 4 Ryberg Units (4 Ry) of charge, 54.4 eV, to each electron on a drop of fluid. (About a million charged electrons are on a 50-micron drop—enough to electrocute bacteria!). The 4 Ry surface charge is the basis of 4Ry’s technology and its name.

Hillary Clinton Spotted Desperately Trying To Refill Lake Mead Before More Bodies Surface

From The Babylon Bee:

Article Image

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — As the water levels of Lake Mead continue to go down, more human remains are being found. In response to this recent development, Hillary Clinton has been spotted outside Lake Mead desperately trying to fill the lake back up with a garden hose.

“This is the fifth body they’ve found since May, Bill! We gotta get out there now and do something about this!” said Hillary Clinton to her husband in a panic. “Hurry, grab the hose! We have to fill the lake back up!”

According to sources, the former Senator and failed Presidential candidate was spotted connecting a hose to a public bathroom at Lake Mead and running it all the way to the shoreline.

Park Rangers say Hillary Clinton will need about 38 million more gallons of water just to bring up the water an inch. Rangers stated that they just didn’t have the heart to tell her, as they’ve been having too much fun watching the entire ordeal play out. Some have even started placing bets on when she’ll finally throw in the towel.

At publishing time, despite Hillary’s efforts, the water dried up further revealing 42 more bodies, all of which had ties to the Clinton Foundation. Confronted by the media, Hillary brushed the whole thing off as a far-right conspiracy theory, while Bill actually seemed excited as if he was looking forward to some time away from Hillary.

Liz Truss’ Global Britain Agenda Tries to Reverse Time, by Matthew Ehret

Liz Truss, an idiot and Great Britain’s probable next Prime Minister, is going to try to restore the empire. Good luck with that. From Matthew Ehret at strategic-culture.org:

The British Empire continues to exert a vast top-down influence over world affairs, Matthew Ehret writes.

Many things are reversible. That weight you put on last thanksgiving, the potholes strewn throughout New Jersey, and even hair loss can easily be reversed.

One thing that isn’t reversible is time, but despite its impossibility, delusional power hungry technocrats have shown themselves absolutely committed to throwing the world not only back to the glory days of 19th century British imperial geopolitics, but even further back into the height of medieval feudalism, albeit with some modern technocratic twists.

Current aspiring leader of Britain Liz Truss, who will certainly be taking the baton of the UK ship of state in September has outlined her commitment to restoring the idiotic policy of “Global Britain” which is merely a pathetic attempt to restore the British Empire to its glory days while revamping the long-standing agenda first laid out by Cecil Rhodes in his 1877 will (aka: My Confessions of Faith) where the arch racist said:

“Why should we not form a secret society with but one object the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilised world under British rule for the recovery of the United States for the making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire”.

The Democrats’ Putsch Takes Another Step Forward, by Paul Craig Roberts

The Democrats have turned the FBI into their secret police. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.com:

Margot Cleveland, law professor and former law clerk for a quarter century for a Federal Appeals Court judge, writing in The Federalist points out that Trump-appointed FBI director Christopher Wray has shown his totalitarian character by equating legitimate criticism of the FBI’s Gestapo behavior for invading the home of President Trump with an attack by Trump supporters on law and order. Not only was the invasion gratuitous, it was done for the sole purpose of creating the impression that President Trump is a felon, as was the FBI’s seizure of Trump’s passport to prevent his flight from “justice.” America now has a Federal Bureau of Investigation that is a Ministry of the Interior Gestapo serving a dictatorial political movement.

Cleveland puts it this way:

“FBI Director Christopher Wray’s Thursday statement represents a disgraceful attempt to silence critics by conflating condemnation of the bureau’s conduct with violence and threats against law enforcement. This outrageous tactic will not work, and that Wray resorted to it confirms he no longer deserves to be FBI director.” https://thefederalist.com/2022/08/12/fbi-director-calls-legit-criticism-of-corrupt-fbi-violence-but-we-werent-born-yesterday/

Weaponizing the Bureaucracy: Who Will Protect Us from the Government’s Standing Army?

Tyranny is turning functionaries and bureaucrats into and American Gestapo. From John and Nisha Whitehead at rutherford.org:

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison

The IRS has stockpiled 4,500 guns and five million rounds of ammunition in recent years, including 621 shotguns, 539 long-barrel rifles and 15 submachine guns.

The Veterans Administration (VA) purchased 11 million rounds of ammunition (equivalent to 2,800 rounds for each of their officers), along with camouflage uniforms, riot helmets and shields, specialized image enhancement devices and tactical lighting.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) acquired 4 million rounds of ammunition, in addition to 1,300 guns, including five submachine guns and 189 automatic firearms for its Office of Inspector General.

According to an in-depth report on “The Militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies,” the Social Security Administration secured 800,000 rounds of ammunition for their special agents, as well as armor and guns.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) owns 600 guns. And the Smithsonian now employs 620-armed “special agents.”

This is how it begins.

We have what the founders feared most: a “standing” or permanent army on American soil.

This de facto standing army is made up of weaponized, militarized, civilian forces which look like, dress like, and act like the military; are armed with guns, ammunition and military-style equipment; are authorized to make arrests; and are trained in military tactics.

Something is Looming Geopolitically, and We Better Start Taking It Seriously, by Sundance

It’s hugely significant that so many Western governments are trying to lower their country’s production, incomes, and wealth. It’s an ominous signal. From Sundance at theconservativetreehouse.com:

As a result of western governments’ taking collective action under the auspices of a ‘climate change’ agenda, we are on the cusp of something happening with ramifications that no one has ever seen before.

Western governments’, specifically western Europe, North America (U.S-Canada) and Australia/New Zealand, are intentionally trying to lower economic activity to meet the intentional drop in energy production.

This is the core consequence of the Build Back Better agenda as promoted by the World Economic Forum.

Anyone who says there is a reference point to determine both the short-term and long-term consequences is lying. There is no precedent for nations’ collectively and intentionally trying to reduce economic activity.

Hiding behind the false justification that current inflation is driven by too much demand, central banks in Europe, the Bank of England, Bank of Canada and U.S. federal reserve are raising interest rates.  The outcome we are currently feeling is an intentional economic contraction and global recession.

The Build Back Better monetary policy is successfully shrinking western economic activity; however, the impacted nations that produce goods for markets in North America and Europe, specifically southeast Asia, Japan and China, are not raising interest rates in an effort to try and offset the drop in demand.  China has announced they are dropping their central bank rates in a desperate effort to lower costs and keep their export dependent economy working.

Why Is Amnesty Apologizing for Telling the Truth About Ukrainian War Crimes? By Jonathan Cook

Amnesty International caves to pressure to modify an honest assessment of Ukraine’s war criminality. From Jonathan Cook at antiwar.com:

Allowing only one side to be criticized for its crimes – reinforcing the loaded western political narrative of good guys versus bad guys – is likely to fuel the war rather than resolve it

Should a human rights organization apologize for publishing important evidence of war crimes and human rights abuses?

If it does apologize, what does that suggest about its commitment to dispassionately uncovering the truth about the actions of both parties to war? And equally, what message does it send to those who claim to be “distressed” by the publication of such evidence?

Those are questions Amnesty International should have pondered far more carefully than it obviously did before issuing an apology last week over its latest report on the war in Ukraine.

In that report, Amnesty accused Ukrainian forces of committing war crimes by stationing troops and artillery in or near schools, hospitals and residential buildings, thereby using civilians effectively as human shields. Such practices by Ukrainian soldiers were identified in 19 different towns and villages.

These incidents did not just theoretically endanger civilians. There is evidence, according to Amnesty, that return fire by Russian troops on these Ukrainian positions led to non-combatants being killed.

Loser Liz Cheney: We knew ye, and that was the problem, by Hunter DeRensis

Liz Cheney supported the same policies as her father did, and real life voters hate them even more now than they did when Dick was the veep. From Hunter DeRensis at responsiblestatecraft.org:

For 20 years she remained committed to using American power as a blunt force instrument, including torture and endless war.

Like the toppling of the Saddam Hussein statue in Baghdad, yesterday the Republican voters of Wyoming deposed the Cheney family from political power.

Incumbent Rep. Liz Cheney, sitting in the seat her father held for the whole of the 1980s, was denied renomination for a fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives. She was defeated by Harriet Hageman, a former friend and supporter turned enemy and opponent, by a titanic two-to-one margin.

While this loss comes as no surprise to sober observers — Cheney had been trailing by double digits in polls for weeks — it does pour cold water on the media’s attempted rehabilitation of the Cheney legacy. It was less than two years ago when Politico, days before the 2020 election, published a fawning profile of Cheney and uplifted her aspirations as the future Speaker of the House in a post-Donald Trump GOP.

“Why aren’t there more Republicans like Liz Cheney,” complains Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, who says Cheney “effectively combines a grasp of the facts, understanding of the law and firm moral conviction.” NPR’s Tamara Keith says Cheney made “a calculation that standing up for the Constitution was more important to her than her congressional seat…”

“Whatever you think of her father, her past or the rest of her ideology, she has, for the past year and a half, been an unstinting, unflagging and—frankly—inspiring model of principle above partisanship, of truth over tribalism,” writes New York Times columnist Frank Bruni.

An Inauspicious Anniversary: Nixon Slams Shut the Gold Window, by Michael Maharrey

When Nixon closed the gold window in 1971, he paved the way for infinite dollar debasement, and the U.S. and the rest of the world have been paying for it ever since. From Michael Maharrey at schiffgold.com:

Fifty-one years ago this week, President Richard Nixon slammed shut the “gold window” and eliminated the last vestige of the gold standard.

Nixon ordered Treasury Secretary John Connally to uncouple gold from its fixed $35 price and suspended the ability of foreign banks to directly exchange dollars for gold. During a national television address, on Aug. 15, 1971, Nixon promised the action would be temporary in order to “defend the dollar against the speculators,” but this turned out to be a lie. The president’s move permanently and completely severed the dollar from gold and turned it into a pure fiat currency.

The First Steps Toward Fiat

Nixon’s order was the end of a path off the gold standard that started during President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration. June 5, 1933, marked the beginning of a slow death of the dollar when Congress enacted a joint resolution erasing the right of creditors in the United States to demand payment in gold. The move was the culmination of other actions taken by Roosevelt that year.

In March 1933, the president prohibited banks from paying out or exporting gold, and in April of that same year, Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102. It was touted as a measure to stop hoarding, but was, in reality, a massive confiscation scheme. The order required private citizens, partnerships, associations and corporations to turn in all but small amounts of gold to the Federal Reserve at an exchange rate of $20.67 per ounce. In 1934, the government’s fixed price for gold was increased to $35 per ounce. This effectively increased the value of gold on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet by 69%.

Pelosi’s Taiwan Visit Was A “Carefully Planned Provocation” To “Destabilize”: Putin

As usual Vladimir Putin has said something worthwhile, and as usual he will be ignored in this country. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

On Tuesday Russian President Vladimir Putin weighed on on major security issues ranging from the ongoing war in Ukraine to China-US tensions over Taiwan in a televised speech. Speaking before defense officials and regional think tank analysts at the Tenth Moscow Conference on International Security, among the most notable assertion of his is that NATO is moving “further east”.

Within days prior to launching the Feb.24 invasion of Ukraine, he gave what was essentially a war speech emphasizing that urgent military action was needed to prevent NATO’s further expansion into Ukraine. But it seems that in his latest comments Tuesday, he sees the threat of NATO influence at work as far as southeast Asia as well.

Via Reuters

In the fresh remarks, Putin continued his prior theme of a turn from unipolar to multi-polar world order, based on the decline of the United States and West. He said as translated in state media:

“Western globalist elites are provoking chaos by rekindling old and inciting new conflicts, implementing a policy of so-called containment, while undermining any alternative, sovereign paths of development. Thus, they are desperately trying to preserve the hegemony and power that are slipping out of their grasp, trying to keep countries and peoples in the grip of a neo-colonial order.”

There Is No Climate Crisis: History Shows Us That The Earth Has Seen Far Worse, by Tyler Durden

Whatever global warming we have now, and it may be zero, doesn’t hold a candle to the heat wave and drought of 1540, when carbon levels were 30 percent lower. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Climate science has been so suffocated by ideological zealotry it’s becoming difficult just to find normal objective analysis these days.  Any piece of data that contradicts the man-made climate change narrative is surrounding by a spin machine that either dismisses the information or obscures it in a deluge of global warming propaganda, inoculating the reader well before they get a chance to digest the news that maybe climate change is not all it’s cracked up to be.

Whenever high temperatures are reported in the US or Europe the news is hyperinflated into wild theories of climate Apocalypse by the media, but weather history suggests that the panic is fabricated rather than justified.  In fact, any hot weather event you can pick out in recent years is likely overshadowed by a much worse event decades or centuries before “man-made carbon pollution” was ever a thing.

For example, the media is frantic over the current drought and “record temps” in Europe this summer, warning that it could become the “worst drought” in 500 years.  Of course, this claim opens the door to a question that climate scientists and propagandists don’t want to answer:  What happened 500 years ago?
