Biden-Trump Cage Match

Will it be the last?
Dear Producer,
Yesterday No Agenda producers got to witness an historic Presidential debate that was unlike anything seen in American history. You will hear an objective analysis on the next No Agenda Show. It will be interesting to compare it to the M5M analysis. The No Agenda analysis is going to be far different because it is not funded by specific corporate and globalist interests whose agenda is fulfilled by the slanted corporate media.

The No Agenda Show analysis can only be developed because these interests have no influence on the show. You are the supporter of the show and you allow and make possible the freedom of honest news analysis.

It’s more important than ever that you continue to support the show with a contribution this week of any amount you can afford. Click here and contribute what you think the show is worth to you. Everything helps. All credit cards accepted.

Tomorrow's Show
Even Covid took a back seat to the Debate of the Century which was the closest thing to an out-and-out heated argument that we will ever see. It began with Joe Biden sniggering onto the camera and quickly devolved into Biden name calling especially once Trump brought up Hunter Biden and then the 1994 crime bill

Promised pics mentioned in last show. Biden did not do this last night.
More interesting, as you will hear on tomorrow’s show is how well Biden held up. He was feisty and wide awake. He only drifted and looked lost at the 80 minute mark but recovered. Then you could go from channel to channel after the debate to hear the network commentary which all gave Biden top marks. In fact, this was a piss-poor performance by both men and neither can be happy about the results. Do not be surprised if the two future debates are not cancelled.

Zoolz closing Home plans-Writing on the wall a while ago!

  A couple of years ago Zoolz had a deal where you could get 3TB of LIFETIME storage for a really really good deal. I jumped on it, even though I use and RECOMMEND BACKBLAZE.  I figured 3 TB of lifetime storage would work great for my own personal stuff. About 7 or 8 months ago I got notice that the maintenance plan on the lifetime accounts would end and they were asking for a 'nominal $15/year or just over $1 per month to continue this maintenance plan".. I emailed them questioning what maintenance they were talking about... think about when you plug in your 128GB Flash drive, other than the initial format you don't do maintenance on it. There response was quite clear that they were going down.. I knew when a company doles out 'lifetime' packages it was a hail-mary to get enough funding to pay their staff.   Now here we are, less than a year later and they are closing the doors on their home plans so they can focus on business plans.. sorry folks, I can't promote this at all. You would be better to jump now.

Here is the email I received.

An Important Message From Zoolz About Your Home Plan
Dear Valued Customer,
It is with deep regret that we inform you, effective immediately, our consumer service, Zoolz Home, will be discontinued in order to allow us to fully focus on the business and organization cloud backup market.
What happened?
The cloud backup market is a competitive one. We entered it 15 years ago with the hope that we could make it accessible to anyone, both business and home users. Even with the many changes we’ve made to how we structured our cloud backup services, we’re unable to competitively service the consumer market.
How does this affect my account?
All Zoolz Home users will have 14 days to retrieve their data from the cloud. Any Zoolz Home order made within the last 30 days will be fully refunded while any customers whose purchase date exceeds the previous 30-day limit and is under 12 months, will be partially refunded. Refunds will be credited within 30 days.
What will happen with my data?
On October 15th account data will be deleted from our servers. Before this, we will be sure to remind all users to retrieve their data before deletion.
Do I have other options with Zoolz?
While we do have enterprise solutions, we no longer have a consumer ready service. For those who do not wish to retrieve their data and would otherwise be happy to stay with our service, we have enabled an option for you to transfer your account over to Zoolz Business at a 90% discount for all Home users who wish to subscribe. Learn more & subscribe.
We’re here to help...
We expect there will be massive amounts of data being retrieved over the coming days, and this will certainly affect the ability for some customers to effectively retrieve their data. To ensure all our customers are able to retrieve their data in the alloted time, we have set up a dedicated email and support staff to help those users experiencing difficulty with their data retrieval -
Please know we did not come to this decision lightly. We exhausted all avenues before reaching this conclusion. Many businesses were affected this year, us included. We want to assure you, we are here to help you fully recover your data before the service becomes unavailable.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.
The Zoolz Team
