Wonder much about the eerie blank demeanor of Erin Burnett, who delivers the 7:00 o’clock news on CNN? I sure do. It’s a creepy kind of fraught blankness, like what the Vietnam grunts used to call the thousand-yard stare, denoting their guilty involvement in a morally odious enterprise. Of course, one must follow CNN in order to discern what fresh bullshit the governing regime is serving up day-to-day from its steam-table of perfidy and bad faith. Does the lady hate her job that much? Or does that farbissiner face signify mere simmering contempt for the audience of deplorable elderly gorks receiving said bullshit over their pitiful TV trays of Ensure on Froot Loops? Or maybe a miniature Donald Trump lives in her head dressed in a little red devil suit with horns, stabbing her parietal lobes with his tiny pitchfork?

Seeing as how Ms. Burnett is the mouthpiece for the Progressive Woke news media in the primest evening slot, does that glowering visage represent the peculiar joylessness of the political Left, a movement steeped in a special kind of shame induced by the irritating failure of its ideas to comport with reality? This is the joylessness of people bunkered too deep in anomie to even find pleasure in their own sadism. Thus, the hint of bored indignation: how dare you not believe the bullshit I am delivering on behalf of your betters… who know what’s good for you?

Or maybe the girl is just on quaaludes.

Anyway, nothing serves as a better barometer of how things are going in the struggle over the fate of this tortured land than Erin Burnett’s scowling puss. And where is this country going? I will tell you: straight into a dark passage of the profoundest political discord, an epochal nightmare of loss and death brought on, it begins to seem, deliberately, by the folks in charge. They are being found out, and the fact that they remain in charge spells ever more obvious danger among all concerned as the truth of their crimes emerges.

Sunday, at the March Against Mandates in our nation’s capital, the resistance to Covid vaccine tyranny laid it out, none with plainer eloquence than Bobby Kennedy:

We love the United States Constitution.  And we have witnessed over the past 20 months a coup d’etat against democracy and the demolition, the controlled demolition of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And starting with the censorship. James Madison, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson all said the same thing: we put freedom of speech in the first amendment because all of the other rights that we were trying to protect relied on that right. If you give government the license to silence its critics, you have given them the capacity to commit any atrocity they want, and to obliterate all the amendments and rights in the constitution.

The message is getting through and the tyrants are running scared. They are perhaps having bad dreams involving torches and pitchforks. Naturally CNN took the lead in attempting to defame Mr. Kennedy as an anti-Semite for mentioning the name of Anne Frank in alluding to the Nazi insanity of the last century and people’s desperate efforts to escape it. CNN said:

The son of former Attorney General and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy has a long history of spreading vaccine misinformation…. Sunday’s event, billed as a protest against vaccine mandates, featured speakers repeatedly spreading misinformation about vaccines and showcased several bigoted comparisons to the Holocaust. At least one man was seen displaying a yellow Star of David, which Jews were required by law to wear as an identifier in Nazi Germany.

So, wearing a Star of David now makes you an insurrectionist in the twisted logic of Wokery. How stupid and confused are they? Anyway, heroes emerge out of adversity. Let them pile it on, insulting history and reality. In fact, Bobby Kennedy stood in the cold at the Lincoln Memorial as a heroic figure for these times, giving a speech that carefully and succinctly denoted the stupendous criminality of the US public health bureaucracy and the corporate-government fascist partnership with Pharma Inc. that has poisoned hundreds of millions of Americans in a medical experiment that has only begun to kill possibly more people than the Nazis ever dreamed of murdering. There has not been a more important public utterance in this land than RFK Jr.’s since this century began.

Meanwhile, the Covid tyranny collapses across Western Civ. Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the UK tossed his country’s entire Covid restriction program into the dumpster last week as the truth about vaccine failure and injuries became impossible to avoid. The Czech Republic and Ireland followed. France made noises about lifting her policies in February. For now, Germany and Austria remained locked-into their Teutonic obedience neurosis, but how much longer can that last? Or does it finally break up the EU? Large street protests rocked European cities Sunday, too. The vaccines have lost their credibility as sacred totems against the accelerating chaos in the advanced nations of the world, who stand to lose the very advancements in prosperity, comfort, and convenience they enjoyed in the centuries of energy super-abundance.

What awaits now is mayhem in the financial markets, the banking system, and national currencies — underway even as you read this. It’s not enough that the people of Western Civ have been battered by a contrived assault on their physical health; now they’ll watch themselves go broke and hungry. Maybe even the monsters of idiocy behind president “Joe Biden” can cook up a world-beating hypersonic war over a country we have next-to-zero national interest in just to make things perfect. I can’t wait to see the look on Erin Burnett’s face as the history of the future unspools.

    Excellent article today, James!

    For those readers interested, this hearing is going on right now:

    Sen. Ron Johnson moderates a panel discussion, COVID-19: A Second Opinion. A group of world renowned doctors and medical experts provide a different perspective on the global pandemic response, the current state of knowledge of early and hospital treatment, vaccine efficacy and safety, what went right, what went wrong, what should be done now, and what needs to be addressed long term.

      • hortonz January 24, 2022 at 11:03 am #

        From the CBC:
        “A national truck convoy passed through Windsor, Ont. on Sunday, before heading toward Ottawa, to protest the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for truck drivers who cross the Canada-United States border.

        Transport trucks choked Huron Church Road in a protest by some drivers, demonstrating against pandemic lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

        Windsor police advised the public to avoid the area as much as possible.”

      That’s my senator! Good old Ron John! Voted against him in favor of Russ Feingold twice, but this time, based on his good faith, I gave his campaign a few hundred bucks, even though I am no Republican.

      • JTinMD January 24, 2022 at 11:43 am #

        I’ve been riveted watching it on OAN. Why the fuck didn’t this happen months ago? (rhetorical question, of course)

        • megabeth January 24, 2022 at 12:02 pm #

          Johnson has been doing media spots with his concerns for at least one year.

          • MaryQueen January 24, 2022 at 6:20 pm #

            There were 256K views when it ended.

          Bravo! Ron Johnson is the man for holding this round table, or whatever it was. I watched the whole thing despite being unaware of it beforehand. I was totally captivated and brought to tears twice. Bravo!

          • megabeth January 24, 2022 at 3:31 pm #

            As Robert Malone puts it, he thinks that Johnson is a straight-arrow Midwesterner and a terrific ally. I’d regret having voted against him if his opponent had not been independent thinker Russ Feingold. But having scrutinized Johnson now, I realize that I would have been better off voting for Johnson.

            Hope Johnson gets more recognition as one of the good Republicans.

        • Socrates-Detroit January 24, 2022 at 5:07 pm #

          Sen. Johnson convened a Senate hearing the first week of November.

          No mainstream media covered it.

          No one from the NAIAD, CDC, or FDA attended it.

          The link I had to it seems to be inoperative now.

          Thank goodness this man is running again and not retiring. He and Rand Paul seem to be the only ones interested in doing the right thing and rescinding mandates.

          The other Republicans are on-board because it’s an opportunity to bash the Democrats, not out of principle.

          • thirdcoastlegend January 24, 2022 at 5:58 pm #

            Senator Johnson was out there trying to get people’s concerns heard at a time when doing such was radioactive.

      Another excellent column!

      I’m glad I went to the DC rally!. Glad it did not snow, sleet, or rain. I can’t estimate the turnout. There were a lot of people, but I would have liked more. I wanted it jam-packed! Still, it was certainly the largest amount of aware people, people who are awake, “not woke”, that I have been with. There were enough people that, once some one got separated, they were hard to find again..

      Tellingly, I only met one local, who said he was an MD, from Baltimore. Seemed legit. Told me his pharmacies refuse to fill his Ivermectin prescriptions, and he has been “warned that his misinformation” may lead to him losing his right to practice.

      Everyone else had travelled a considerable distance. Michigan, of course–but also Ohio, North Carolina, NY, NJ, Mass.

      Excellent speakers. Here is a link: I think it is all worth watching, or having in the background, like a radio. IMO, if your time is limited, the parts that I think are best to watch are the “hero doctors” who are being forced out or harassed (minute 0:59), just a few of the vaccine injured and/or their families for those who are not longer with us (2:00) and RFK Jr’s speech (2:30).

    I don’t watch CNN for obvious reasons, but if there is any person on the planet who makes me want to vomit more than Nora O’Donnell on the CBS Propaganda hour, I don’t know who it is. She dishes out that canned bullshit with a serious face as if she actually believes that crap. Guess I need to take a look at Erin Burnett now.

    • MaryQueen January 24, 2022 at 10:04 am #

      Yes! She’s one vile ghoul. I get a very visceral reaction from her. She has horrible energy, and she seems to be driven by hate.

      • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 10:55 am #

        I was having a conversation with a woman, about how some of the best reporters on the scamdemic tended to discount certain conspiracy theories, and she said they overlooked evil as a factor.

        I think that’s because we don’t have a way to measure or prove evil, but we can sense it and know that it is real.

        Scientists and investigative reporters have to ignore intangibles, don’t they?

        That Jen Pasaki turns my stomach. You can almost see the demon fighting to emerge.

          @Beryl & Mary — I only get CBS on my TV since I cancelled cable & had never watched their news. There really is something cruel & hard about Norah that comes through even with her canned sympathy for human interest stories. I get the same feeling from her that I did from Hillary.

        • Anthea January 24, 2022 at 12:11 pm #

          The methods for measuring and proving evil are well known. Evil is when you lie, cheat, steal, and kill, and/or you are an accessory thereto.

          There are existing legal standards for measuring the degree of culpability.

          There is nothing “intangible” at all about evil.

          • GreenAlba January 24, 2022 at 1:16 pm #

            There was a movement from the 60s and 70s onward, though – notably in the newish field of sociology – that reasoned evil away. Determinists would have it that a person stole, or even killed, because of something that happened to them as a child. And there’s truth in that too, but they dropped the personal responsibility side of things, which helped take ‘badness’ out of the picture.

            I remember a teacher (woodwork or something, but he was also a ‘guidance’ teacher) making us laugh in the staff room because some kid had said, in response to being upbraided for something, ‘but Sir, it’s peer pressure, Sir’. (The two Sirs were verbatim.)

          • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 1:18 pm #

            Not so. Plenty of people who are not evil do wrong things and illegal things.

            If you are a public health expert, and you put out bad information, how do you determine the difference between incompetence and evil?

            People are very frequently legally liable for things they didn’t even know they were doing wrong.

          • spaingaroo January 25, 2022 at 9:50 am #

            “Political Ponerology” is the book to refer to in this case I think, although it’s still on my reading list

        • GreenAlba January 24, 2022 at 1:06 pm #

          Beryl

          That’s exactly what Mike Yeadon said in the interview about the lethal Pfizer batches. He said people generally have forgotten that evil exists, hence they can’t accept things that are happening for what they are.

        • hmuller January 24, 2022 at 11:07 am #

          The answer is in an article in The Sun 13 April 2018. Talking Heads. Inside the Gruesome Beheading Experiments.. short answer 30 seconds of consciousness, although they don’t say much.

          • U R IntheVillage January 24, 2022 at 2:23 pm #

            Nonsense. With zero blood pressure in the brain, O2 transport ceases and unconsciousness occurs almost immediately. If you had ever observed someone in an ICU hooked up to monitors and observed them as they go into ventricular fibrillation, they lose consciousness within one or 2 seconds at most.

            Some artist should have painted two lovers guillotined together, their heads turned towards each other, their eyes saying what their mouths cannot: You look great.

            Ancient vases show Achilles killing the Queen of the Amazons, and them falling in love in her last instant.

          “So, Mr. Gates – how are those demons you’ve courted working out for you now?”

          “Mr. Fauci – if you were really a physician, could you heal your present condition and reattach your head? Maybe a boostah would help?”

          I think it’s wishful thinking to think they will ever be held accountable but I hope I’m wrong. A man has a right to dream….

            I agree cojones. The delusion that there will be some accountability for those that have pushed this tyranny, is on a par of “Trust the Plan”

            Nothing will come of it, the Queen will Knight those responsible, at their funerals politicians and media will laud their courage and foresight.

          “It’s the right thing to do!”
          “Do it for your neighbors.”
          “It’s the patriotic thing to do.”

            When family members of Covidians die, those left behind will claim that “Covid” did it and that the vaxx bought daddy a few more precious weeks with his masked loved ones. It will also be the fault – ok, mostly the fault – of those damned vaxx-resisters: “You killed my daddy!”

            I think your theory has a lot of merit.

            I think the frenzied push to jab everyone since September (when Biden announced mandates) was to ensure that we were dropping like flies by now and that so many of us would have clotted out there would be little pressure on the supply chain.

        • Blackbird January 24, 2022 at 3:39 pm #

          And if the vaxx bragging is accurate, well almost two-thirds of the citizens of the US are fully vaxxed Covidians. They support Fauci and all of his puppets.

          • Blackbird January 24, 2022 at 7:02 pm #

            According to usafacts.org, 64% of the US population has been fully vaxxed – 76% with at least one dose. Sure, it’s probably a lie, but what is the real number? I’m sure we don’t, and never will, know. Mayo Clinic has state-by-state “numbers” (Go Alabama!)

            I suspect that a majority are doing what they are told, and that more will fold as the pressure to take the shot is increased. “You can have your principles or you can have your job.”

      The Governor of Hawaii has arbitrarily decided that one must be vaccinated to enter Hawaii. That seems blatantly illegal (interstate commerce?) to me.

      The US has requires foreigners, including Canadian truckers, to be vaccinated. Did Congress make such a law?

      Did Congress vote on wearing those stupid masks on aircraft? Or on the DC Metro?

      The Supreme Court agreed that health care workers need to be vaccinated because…the feds say so.

      If the laws are arbitrary, in that they not only were not voted on, but are not even sound (for the public. The fear is very profitable for big pharma, and for the psychopaths who want to rule EVEN MORE than they already do).

      The noise elsewhere hasn’t stopped, with scare stories from the WHO and others (even UK *scientists*) about a new Moronic sub-variant.

      Making everything seem kind of back to normal in England (Sturgeon is visibly choking on the thought of relinquishing a bit of control north of the border and wants masks and passes forever) is likely just a ruse like all the others. Many people are waking up, but many, many others will see this as vindication of their view that (a) everything has worked, and (b) the government is clearly benevolent and isn’t doing the scary things that the ‘conspiracy theorists’ said they were.

      So they’ll jump even higher the next time the government tells them to. Only by that time it will be Mr Digital Currency, son-in-law of a billionaire, Rishi Sunak, probably at the helm, not Boris. Boris will take a little family time, then get his nice job back at The Telegraph where he can continue to work for his present paymasters in a supporting role.

      But he’s already named on that referral to the ICC at The Hague, although he could be in a care home by the time that gets anywhere serious. The wheels of justice grind exceeding slow, unless justice goes pitchfork-y, which is not likely over this way.

      • Night Owl January 24, 2022 at 10:47 am #

        Exactly. I realize this may be frowned upon by the anti-“conspiracy theory” brigade that likes to pipe up every now and then, but this is far from over.

        The end game has always been digital currency and a digital ID, evidence for which has been posted dozens of times here.

        We have made progress (and by we I don’t mean the lickspittles and latent fascists who had no problem with any of this horseshit), but the WEF nut jobs are still in control in every place that they had control to date.

        Germany plans forced vaccination this summer, Austria has already mandated it, and Australia and Canada are police states.

          @Night Owl — “The end game has always been digital currency and a digital ID, evidence for which has been posted dozens of times here.”

          I agree with you that this has always been the last big move after the pandemic winds down. If your debit/credit card won’t work because it was frozen at the bank for whatever reason is stated, then it won’t take long for no gas, no food, no nuthin. And those pesky beggars you give a couple of bucks too will be — where?

          But ginning up climate hysteria will also be hand in hand with it. Exactly how this will be utilized I don’t know but it’s on its way.

          • GreenAlba January 24, 2022 at 12:37 pm #

            You will have social credits and carbon credits. That’s how it will be utilized. So, even if you’re allowed food, because you’re fully jabbed with the latest Gates/Schwab injectable, you may be told no, you can’t go on that holiday, because you already went over your heating allowance last month.

            Melissa Ciummei (N.Irish independent investor) explains it succinctly here:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_piq51-qjc

          • Socrates-Detroit January 24, 2022 at 5:00 pm #

            @SW

            The climate hysteria is aimed (overwhelmingly) at

            1. The USA (THE primary target, as people drive the most, and use the most fuel for transport)
            2. Canada and Australia
            3. Western Europe.
            4. The rest of the world with any semblance of a first world standard of living.

            The CCP will do the same to their populace.

            You will be asked, encouraged, or coerced, to do your part to stop global warming by using less energy, by replacing your current vehicle with an electric one today, and replacing your EV with an autonomous vehicle tomorrow.

            You won’t own the AV. It will be an app like Uber. And then, you will be at the mercy of the Uber app. The Uber app may “help you” help the planet, by driving less. Maybe it will cap you at 500 miles a month. Perhaps for people like you, who come to places like this, your social credit score will be such that you will forfeit your transport “privileges”.

            This will enable the enlightened to control where you go and when. Ostensibly to reduce your “carbon footprint”. Maybe so, but as with the vaccine passport, it’s really about controlling you.

          • SW January 24, 2022 at 6:24 pm #

            GA — I watched the youtube you posted & would have put one question to her: what good do you think gold or silver will do you in a totalitarian state? Dictators that can force schools to close indefinitely, decide who gets health care and who doesn’t, and what kind of vehicle (if any) you’ll be allowed to drive in 10 years won’t pause to confiscate hard assets. Roosevelt did it:

            “Just two weeks prior to abandoning the gold standard, he issued an executive order prohibiting hoarding of gold coins, bullion or gold certificates. People and corporations were mandated to deposit these with the Federal Reserve or face up to $10,000 in fine or up to 10 years of imprisonment or both. Those who gave up their gold were compensated.”

            Imagine what $10,000 was worth in 1933 and that was the fine. So what would protect a person holding gold coins now? I’ve never really understood this.

            @ Socrates-Detroit — Billionaires are already doing this with so-called carbon credits. I saw two stories on the news feed about the urgency of climate change so we’ll all get to find out a lot more about these. My guess? The poor will sell theirs to add a paltry amount to their income so the rich will have no restrictions at all.

          • GreenAlba January 24, 2022 at 7:35 pm #

            SW

            I agree about your point to Socrates – the credits will be sold by the poor to the rich. It’s always been the way – sell your body, sell your baby, sell your kidney, rent your uterus.

            Re the gold and silver, yes I agree with that too. I think it only works if there’s a substantial part of society that isn’t living under the new normal, and I’m not sure how long that would last, unless the new normal crumbles first.

            Catherine Austin Fitts seems to be proposing exactly that. But, while I think she’s great, her solutions involve things that only people with a certain level of means can aspire to (unless you happen to own land already). For those of us without any real options, she suggests prayer. 🙂

          • Islander January 24, 2022 at 9:28 pm #

            islander

            Yes. I’ve always used cash a lot, because even long before covid, I objected to the banks’ attempts to move us towards a cashless society – and I didn’t know the whole story then about their agenda, just that ‘no cash’ would obviously give them more control. I use cash everywhere I can now. They’ve removed the nearest cash machine to me, outside our local corner shop. There’s one not much further away, but I heard it’s going to go too. And if you to a bank to remove a large sum of your own money in cash, you’re treated as a potential money launderer.

          • GreenAlba January 25, 2022 at 5:31 am #

            The thing is, though, islander, that once they’ve actually abolished money as we know it, we won’t have the option of using cash. It will be worthless.

        • Blackbird January 24, 2022 at 3:50 pm #

          I agree. We anti-Covidians can be just as irrational as the Covidians when it comes to believing what we want to believe. (There is a simple solution: don’t believe anything. Question everything – especially those things you are told you must believe. Belief is for suckers.)

          They have been working on this for decades. I would guess since at least 1976 – “swine flu” and “Legionaire’s Disease”. Then AIDS, SARS, MERS, Ebola, Zika…

          It won’t be over until we are all vaxxed, chipped, tracked, locked up, and made to dance like monkeys on a string to get our daily ration of 3D printed bug burgers.

      • thirdcoastlegend January 24, 2022 at 10:54 am #

        I believe you are correct that the well-spoken, affable, WEF-plant Sunak will be the next PM.

        He will simply make the digital currency a fait accompli by banning cash and requiring the jabport for any sort of electronic transaction going forward.

        I expect the banks to slowly begin, “upgrading,” people’s accounts to the new CBDCs tied to the jabports. Anyone who doesn’t want the jabport can just go starve.

        • Night Owl January 24, 2022 at 11:04 am #

          Yes, a certain amount of the WEF agenda is probably unavoidable at this point.

          Not long ago some fat fuck at the Bank of International Settlements gave an interview in which he described in detail the coming digital currency and associated IDs (the use of which they had hoped to cement via Covid).

          He even described how it would give the banks total control over monetary transactions, and how it was necessary for our safety.

            Made it very clear. The aim is total surveillance and control of our expenditures. So that bankers can plan and control the world economy! They arrogate to themselves the right to rule the world via everyone’s use of money. I would take them all out. Snipers. Maybe the only solution is to stop using money. Or create one’s own.

            Catherine Austin Fitts ran the relevant clip on one of her podcasts. I think it was the one where she was interviewed by the young German whose name I cannot recall.

            Anyhow, I had already seen this—perhaps in one of Ernst Wolff’s recent talks. In August 2021, I believe.

            Here it is-p–“The central bank will have absolute control”–should be read and bookmarked by all:

    My greatest wish now is for some undeniable truth to be revealed about the extent of the falsehoods in Washington so that NO ONE can ignore the lies that have been repeated so many times that the low-information voter believes them to be gospel.

    Ukraine feels like a case of the arsonist returning to the scene of the fire to witness his handiwork. Uncle Joe is either under someone’s thumb regarding the earlier crimes or is enough of a megalomaniac to believe he is above that fray.

    Or maybe it’s going to be proof of the calumny woven through the whole covid narrative by Dr. F who may still be trying to CYA regarding the gain of function stuff.

    Maybe it’s something else we’re barely aware of yet….either way, I hope the dominos start falling soon.

      Me too. But there have already been several undeniable truths admitted that lie by the mental wayside for too many.

      How the CDC and government can now publicly acquiesce that the jabs clearly don’t provide protection from catching or transmitting “the virus”…yet still actively support mandates and vaccine passports…is beyond me. Well, it’s not beyond me, because I’m a sensible pessimist who knows there are always people playing games. But how most can buy it blows my mind.

Americans, by and large, have become obsessed with being entertained. Forget critical thinking. Where is the USA now compared to the rest of the world in Math and Sciences? 17th? 27th? Remember when we were 1st in everything? But hey, can’t actually teach kids anything anymore, not even their own damn language. It’s racist!

      It is maddening. I dealt with that in an unwanted conversation with someone close who kept bleating that “fact”. I didn’t want to engage on it in any way because I know how these conversations devolve, but I couldn’t help but point out Israel. He had no response, but moved on to how people aren’t believing people who actually went to medical school, or some such thing. I said very little, and was ultimately hung up on.

      He texted the next day about the ballgame. We’re “all good”… we just don’t talk about “that”.

          whys — how would too many readers pronounce it? – JTin

          =========

          I, of course, would pronounce it as ‘wise’.

          I wrote ‘whys’ on the back of an envelope, placed it in front of my wife, and asked her to pronounce it. She said ‘ways’. I think she thought I was giving her some kind of trick question.

          What about you JTin? How do you pronounce it?

          I went to my smart phone and in the Google block and using voice input I spoke into it the phrase in question. It filled that block with ‘the whys and wherefores’ and provided this further information:

          plural noun: whys and wherefores

          a reason or explanation.

          “the whys and wherefores of these procedures need to be explained to the students”

          If a simple thing like knowing how to pluralize ‘why’ is a subject for continued debate, God help us all here at CFN.

          • JTinMD January 28, 2022 at 9:21 am #

            Well, I would pronounce the word whys the same way you do, Q. When I one-finger typed it on my iPad, auto fill “suggested” why’s, and I went with it cuz I can easily imagine people pronouncing it as wiss.

        My husband lost a finger, recently, and I still chuckle thinking of the guy who mock-recoiled shaking his hand and exclaimed, “Hey! Put that thing away!” about his stump.

        And I have a couple of relatives with spasmodic dysphonia. (Curse of the Vikings–hits mostly norther Europeans) It sounds so difficult for them, but my hat’s off to a public speaker who powers through all that.

    CNN seems to be leading the charge against a person called Bari Weiss, and this person didn’t even get that far out of line.

    She said she was “over” covid on a show with Bill Maher. She did not go far enough, in fact she told the lie that it’s because of “what we know now” that she got over the hysteria.

    We knew it then, she’s a journalist, allegedly, yet she somehow didn’t bother to look beyond the press releases by the agencies she was supposed to be covering.

    There is NO new evidence that masks don’t work. Ms. Weiss and the rest of the presstitutes should be right now asking what made the “public health officials” start lying on cue about the efficacy of cloth rags to the face.

    Back when that happened, they were all much too busy trying to make excuses for why Dr. Fauci changed his mind about face rags, and kept changing his mind.

    Way back when I was in grade school, teachers would remind the class, “do your own work”.

    I guess the entirety of the corporate media never got that reminder.

          • Islander January 26, 2022 at 9:13 am #

            Opinions diverge as to what the phrase “good German” actually refers to.

            Before it became an ironic “air quote” phrase in use in a culture that loves to deride others and claim moral superiority—while the latter actually remains untested— it referred to Germans who actually did stand up to the Nazi regime. Americans feel superior if such good Germans managed to escape with their lives–like Joachim Fest’s father. Kind of like if you sink, it proves were were innocent of being a witch.

            IMO the perversion of the phrase–of the very idea that there actually were good Germans who actually did stand up to the Nazis— is a flag of this obnoxious American claim to moral superiority vis-a-vis Germans.

    In Singapore the stupid COVID tyranny continues to hold sway (for the time being). The ministers continue to frighten everyone by warning that the number of Omicron casualties will escalate into the tens of thousands — and we haven’t enough ICU units in our hospitals to handle them all! Oh, the horror!

    It truly makes me wonder which of the following would be true: whether (1) Singapore’s government has been blackmailed by the miscreants behind the whole COVID madness, or whether (2) they have been bribed, or whether (3) they have been forming a team with the miscreants behind the scenes. In any case, hopefully in a few weeks it will become clear to Singapore, as we see what transpires in the UK, the Czech Republic etc, that the whole COVID horror story is just a fat pile of steaming BS. Then we’ll see how our government will shield its butt.

        • GreenAlba January 24, 2022 at 11:46 am #

          You’d have to be optimistic to have faith, though, JTin. It was all ignored by the media here. The Independent did a hit piece on the DC rally and ignored all the bigger ones (because they couldn’t say the same thing about the numbers).

          I expected more people at the DC rally too, but the speakers were fantastic.

          The Independent (whose name works in the same Orwellian fashion as ‘Pravda’) put ‘vaccine injured’ in inverted commas when trying to discredit those who spoke. They did a live comment piece which included hit pieces about everybody involved, including the crowd.

          With a straight face (one presumes, despite the money the pharma companies have made) they talk about the ‘anti-vaxx doctors’ making money from books and selling expensive remedies like ivermectin. Seriously.

          And their only coverage of the NHS rally in London (protesting the sacking of 70,000 unjabbed NHS workers) was a 28-second video of NHS staff throwing uniforms ‘at Downing Street’.

          As ever, most of the comments are as bad. I nearly commented, then thought what’s the point. Pissing in the wind.

            It would have been good to have more there. It also had all the potential for a Jan 6th redux, if not during, after, as people were peacefully leaving. Some sort of false flag could easily have been pulled off.

            The spectre of this, in my opinion, kept a significant number of people away. Running in the background is the unreliability, and at times outright corruption, of certain “enforcement” agencies and their 3-letter agency brethren.

            I wasn’t in Belgium, therefore only have seen what has made it out regarding what went down. This could easily have happened in the occupied city on the Potomac.

            I was relieved that nothing happened too. And lots of people watching it will have taken encouragement from the speakers and singers, so it was still worthwhile.

          Yes, steppingup: Important to remember, and always tell the young, that Saddam and Khadaffy, both evil men (but effective leaders) were liquidated because they openly attempted to buck the petro-dollar and do an end-run around the western banking mafia. That is one move that is clearly not allowed.

      Ukraine = squirrel!!
      It serves a dual purpose – to deflect attention from the real time collapse of western civ, and to feed the rapacious war machine – professional war mongers, Raytheon, Dow, and politicians on the take. (Even Bernie Sanders has never voted against an increase in the military budget.)
      The US spends more than 1/3 of the entire world military spending, and twice as much as China and Russia combined. Russia comes in at 5%.
      One of the best ways to fight the globalists is to put an end to war, starve the beast. This, along with total Global governmental and political transparency.

    Bobby Kennedy, like his father before him, is an American hero. I sincerely hope he avoids his father’s fate. It takes a lot of courage to do what he is doing with that reality hanging over him.

    • C.O.Jones January 24, 2022 at 11:34 am #

      Bobby Kennedy really is sticking his neck out by telling the truth. He has far more testicular fortitude than Rand Paul or any other politician pretending to be against death shots and for that reason alone, I would vote for him for president. I don’t think he is interested in the job but a man of his intelligence, courage and fortitude is what we need. We thought we had it in the orange guy but we got played. I think RFK Jr. is the real deal.

      • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 11:55 am #

        The orange guy almost averted all this, when he asked Bobby Jr. to be his head of vaccine safety.

      Yes, Mr K is a great wordsmith! Amongst the great.
      Cormac McCarthy also has a way with words:

      “The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible.
      Had you not seen it all from birth ?
      and thereby bled it of its strangeness ?
      it would appear to you for what it is, ?
      a hat trick in a medicine show, ?
      a fevered dream, ?
      a trance bepopulate with chimeras ?
      having neither analogue nor precedent, ?
      an itinerant carnival, ?
      a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination ?
      after many a pitch in many a mudded field ?
      is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning.
      ?
      The universe is no narrow thing ?
      and the order within it ?
      is not constrained by any latitude ?
      in its conception to repeat what exists in one part in any other part. ?
      Even in this world more things exist ?
      without our knowledge ?
      than with it ?
      and the order in creation which you see ?
      is that which you have put there, ?
      like a string in a maze, ?
      so that you shall not lose your way. ?
      For existence has its own order ?
      and that no man’s mind can compass, ?
      that mind itself being but a fact among others.” ?

            None of our pols can match Putin for intellect and grasp of the Big Picture. That is the real reason they hate him.

    As the ODP (Official Democratic Party) gets kicked to death for its subservience to the US Ruling Class (and a well-deserved beating it is!), let’s not descend to the fantasies of the children of alcoholic parents, shall we? That fantasy… hopelessly and desperately-maintained… that ONE of these losers really loves me! Alcoholic Dad beats us up, then (enabler-) alcoholic Mom comforts us… great. Rinse & Repeat. A doomed riverboat, engine dead, rudder broken, we drift ever closer to the (now, clearly visible/audible) waterfall. And the BEST we can imagine is to run from the side of the ship called “Democratic” to the side called “Republican”? Um, haven’t we been on that side before? Do we not ALWAYS run to the “other” side hoping for a change? How’s that been working?

    • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 11:02 am #

    meanwhile QOL declines, heres yet another reason, no 2,

    “Yes, they want whitey’s money…”
    That’s what Obama’s failed “Regional Equity Plan” was all about. He wanted to steal the taxes of white towns/areas and “donate” the money to inner city negro areas to “improve” them. Even white towns far from inner city cesspools were to have a portion of their taxes stolen for this purpose. Whitey wasn’t supposed to keep his money for his own areas- the money stolen was to go towards providing the hoodrats with areas that looked just like white areas at whitey’s expense since the negroes could never fund such improvements themselves. Obama was just another typical thieving negro trying to get his paws into white people’s wallets.

    THE NO BAIL BS

    More information on the Bail Project:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robin_Steinberg#cite_note-19
    Robin Steinberg is an American lawyer and social justice advocate[1] who is currently the chief executive officer of the Bail Project,[2] an organization she founded with her husband David Feige in 2007
    https://www.riverfronttimes.com/stlouis/dont-blame-the-bail-project-for-marcia-johnsons-murder/Content?oid=31483816
    Marcia Johnson, 54, of St. Louis was found brutally murdered in her south city home, and the suspect — her husband, Samuel Lee Scott — had apparently come straight from jail to commit the crime after making bail. Scott had been held by the city for four days after being picked up on a “wanted” warrant alleging he’d punched Johnson in the face three months earlier. He had been charged with fourth-degree domestic assault, a misdemeanor.
    What made this story uniquely newsworthy: Scott had been bailed out by a national social-justice group known as the Bail Project, whose mission is “to combat racial and economic disparities in the bail system.” St. Louis is one of the group’s prime target areas, and since arriving here in early 2018, it has provided bail for more 1,300 low-income defendants incarcerated while awaiting their day in court in both city and county.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bail_Project

    Christopher Stewart, who was caught illegally with a handgun and threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend, was bailed out with $5,000 in cash in early 2020. A month after his bail, he attempted to kill his ex-girlfriend by setting her apartment on fire. In an interview, Stewart’s ex-girlfriend expressed that: “They need to do better if they are going to have a charity bail people out. That’s wasting money that could have gone to someone who would have done right by it.”[17]
    Joe Gamaldi, national vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police and an active-duty sergeant in the Houston Police Department, explained

    ”[t]hey are allowing people to donate and then they’re bonding out violent criminals who are repeat offenders. I mean, this is not the shoplifting a candy bar from Wal-Mart. These are people who are committing murders, aggravated assault,” Gamaldi said. Further, Gamaldi revealed that organizations like The Bail Project only support a “radical system” where cash bail does not exist and also alleges that they don’t care about public safety. “You know, I’ll be honest, I don’t think they give a damn about public safety,” Gamaldi said. “They know exactly the people that they are bailing out. They know that these individuals that are out on already multiple felony bonds and they’re helping them get another one. They know that some of these are very violent individuals, and you cannot look at this with a straight face and tell me that you care about the community that you’re operating in.”

    In January, The Bail Project paid $1,500 to bail Marcus Garvin out of Marion County Jail on charges of felony battery after he allegedly stabbed a man at an east-side convenience store in December 2019. Garvin was free on bail and wearing a GPS ankle bracelet on July 24 when Marion County prosecutors say he stabbed Christie Holt to death at an east-side motel on July 24. Garvin was charged with murder on Aug. 3.

    Also in January, the group paid a portion of the bail for Travis Lang who had been jailed on a cocaine-possession charge. On Oct. 1, prosecutors say Lang shot Dylan McGinnis to death and wounded a woman in a car on the east side. Lang was charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery and other crimes.
    In April, The Bail Project paid a $750 bail that freed Deonta Williams, who had been jailed on a felony burglary charge. Williams, 20, is accused of making a fake 911 call to lure two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers to his location before he stabbed them in an unprovoked attack. Prosecutors charged Williams with attempted murder.

      Regarding rapidly dwindling middle class wealth, I think we should expect them to make another run at sneaking in a wealth tax aimed at 401ks, IRAs, and other common middle-class retirement vehicles.

      They’ll probably stick it 2/3rds of the way into some highway maintenance bill.

    How about considering a different “take” on current events.
    For years now our host, JHK, has written about the three great “rackets” which have plagued the American landscape for many years. Namely, Health Care, Education, and Finance. By the time the “Covid-19” gambit draws to a close, I suspect that the first two, Health Care and Education, will be smoldering ruins. Next it’s highly possible that we will see the Finance racket crater in some spectacular way (It’s actually quite possible that Finance is effectively cratering now, but we haven’t yet experienced any spectacular events easily understood by the average person.) So a different “take” on current events is that the Covid-19 gambit is actually a clever method to detonate the three primary grifts that plague America. The question is, is it planned or just serendipitous?

    • D from OR January 24, 2022 at 11:17 am #

      Agree about Health “Care” and Education. There were headed to the dumpster already but give it another six months and it is going to look even worse. Hospitals will close and so will schools.

      Talk of “restructuring” will be the way around the obvious but it won’t happen.

      You can call it serendipitous however I think its the sky clock. Events happening around beginning of March, late April (4/20) and into May will change our trajectory. Many world-wide elections take place during these times and the astrological forecast is disruption and the further destruction of institutional systems.

      Often Martin Armstrong’s Socrate’s forecasts dovetail with the astrology and it says the same.

      Also October is not a good month.

      • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 12:00 pm #

By May it will have significantly deviated from the baseline and continue likely into September. October isn’t a very kind month for financial events.

    Hopefully now the MSM and “big corps” will be forced to loosen their control of our overton window. One example is their Orwellian accusation of “vaccine misinformation” in reference to RFK’s work…. It is not misinformation. These vaccines are harming and even killing children: https://childrenshealthdefense.org/

    Think of the shit-storm against these companies when the ‘critical mass’ awakens to the truth. Families whose babies died from SIDS, families who were destroyed by autism, peanut allergies, egg allergies, will rjse up in anger against this corporate beast, and rightfully so.

    I thank God sincerely for RFKjr. He has that old Kennedy Nobility of Spirit. May he stay safe from harm and continue the fight.

    Maybe off topic, but I heard that the chemical companies that produce the multiple estrogen mimics and endocrine disruptors are major funders of the Trans, and LQB#&! groups. The rationale was to curry favor within these groups so that they never wake up to the fact that their sexual dystopia is in fact caused by these very chemicals.
    These same substances also cause obesity, so perhaps they are also funding the push to normalize or even glamorize obesity.

      Speaking of the trans movement, back in the olden times, one of the charges made against the gays was that “they can’t reproduce, so they have to recruit”.

      I used to dismiss that as being ridiculous, because I didn’t know of any gay guy who chose to be gay. In fact, most of them said they would rather not have been that way.

      What I am beginning to see now, and I should have recognized it sooner, is that’s what the LGBT movement is trying to do, with pushing the idea that children need to be educated about different genders, and told that they might not be the one their parents told them they are.

      People such as Chelsea Manning and Caitlyn Jenner run into the problem that there is an even smaller dating pool for these “trans” people than there is for gays and lesbians.

      We even see articles in the media trying to shame heterosexual men for being unwilling to date “trans women”.

      So, what they are attempting with children is recruitment to fill out their ranks.

      This is harmful and evil and criminal. I don’t care who you are attempting to alter young people to coincide with the warped sexual fetish of a handful of adults is sick.

        “D.C. weather is mild compared to what we have.” Any DC demonstration is “mild” compared to a 3 week trucker’s blockage of the entire DC area. That would work even better during a paralyzing snow storm, and NOBODY would even have to show up.

  30. Bill of Rights January 24, 2022 at 12:01 pm #

    “Bill of Rights” is not my real name. It’s a “handle”. I picked it because my house painter told me 2 years ago of the announcement by our governor DeSantis that there will be a “lockdown” taking effect the next day. I was skeptical of the painter’s news because I always thought that the Bill of Rights protects free people from “lockdowns” which are common in dictatorships. Since then I began to study the Bill of Rights in detail and have learned a lot of helpful information which my “award winning” public school should have taught me. Governor DeSantis (a Harvard and Yale product no less) finally recognized the error of his ways and made an about-face which raised him to the front-runner position in the 2024 Presidential election.

    Bobby Kennedy Jr. probably never thought much about the Bill of Rights either when he was working on the child vaccine questions. Now he’s taking that document more seriously as should we all.

    GERMANY: I just arrived in Munich, Germany today and talked to a stranger on the plane and another at the airport bakery stand, and several more at my destination in East Germany. It seems everyone has had it with this covid chaos. Kindergartners are being tested for covid thrice a week – and they wonder why there is a shortage of test kits. Up until last week, an unvaccinated barber was allowed to cut hair all day in direct physical contact with his clients, but the same barber was not allowed to enter his own barber shop to get his hair cut by his colleague — because unvaccinated people were barred from barber shops.

    • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 12:24 pm #

      I heard that it was Dr. Scott Atlas who got through to Governor DeSantis.

      It’s really tragic, President Trump could see his task force wasn’t going so well, so he brought in Dr. Atlas, but then Jared and the Vice President interfered so much that Dr. Atlas couldn’t do his job.

      We need to find out just how Anthony Fauci became head of that task force.

      More and more the vice president’s management is looking pretty sinister to me.

      • Blackbird January 24, 2022 at 2:50 pm #

        “We need to find out just how Anthony Fauci became head of that task force.”

        His previous successes (see “AIDS” et al) got Fauci the job. It was inevitable. He has been doing the same job since 1984, and will continue to do it until it is complete.

        • Beryl of Oyl January 24, 2022 at 3:00 pm #

          Someone had to suggest the name. That name should have instantly set off alarm bells. Why didn’t it? Who actually made the call to Fauci, asking him to be on that task force?

          • Blackbird January 24, 2022 at 3:27 pm #

            “That name should have instantly set off alarm bells.” It would have if the people running our government weren’t sociopaths bent on our destruction. Since that is exactly what they are, I’m sure they all just smiled at each other as they looked around the table thinking the same thought: “Fauci!”

            Paula no I haven’t read the RFK book yet. I’ve been able to get answers for a lot of my questions from reviews of Scott Atlas’ book, but exactly how the man who funded the virus ended up in charge of the task force is still a mystery.

            Who actually made it happen?

          • Paula D January 25, 2022 at 12:18 pm #

            It reminds me of putting the mastermind of the JFK assassination, Allen Dulles, in charge of the ”investigation” into the murder.
            Same with putting Philip Zelikow in charge of ”investigating” 9-11.

      Get ready, you haven’t seen anything yet.

      In 2008, JHK caught my eye and I read TLE. Scared me to death because it was heading west when the rest of America was heading east. My ignorance at the time was changed in short order. I was appalled at the fact that 100% of the people I discussed issues with were more ignorant than me, but more non caring deniers too.

      Still are!! Most anyway. CFN is a tiny group of alarmists that JHK has set off the alarm bells in, myself included. His prophesies are deadly accurate, fracking being the only surprise. The end result though, IMHO, is that instead of the oil situation coming to fruition in 2100, I think it will be in the neighborhood of 2050. Why? Because fracking is already showing signs of wearing out, and the damage that has been done by the Liberals on the FF industry.

      The Dems are going full bore on the renewable fight against FF for AGW. Anyone notice any improvement? Anyone notice that things are actually getting worse?

      Anyone noticing Ukraine? Ukraine, the FF connection between Russia and Europe.

      Anyway, notice he has written two updates. Too Much Magic and Life in the Long Emergency. I would suggest both.

        There is no solution, that is a prime message JHK is sending out. It fits right into the,

        Do nothing – Make excuses government we have now.

        No matter who wins in the next three years, the Deep State, the product of both parties, is going down and fast as more and more people figure out they do not have a clue what to do.

            “It has happened ever since.” What has been “happening” over the course of history is that people break down permanently after enduring the unendurable. “What do you expect?” Expect that!
            It doesn’t matter whether it was a good war, a bad war, justified, not justified, won, lost, or abandoned in disgrace. Some times the best that a PTSD combat veteran can say is “I put up with that so you didn’t have to.”

    ‘That is the face inevitability’ – The Matrix

    Nice article Jim. The, “Assets of Unreality”, continue their collapse today. I thought you would enjoy this CBS Marketwatch article linked from Yahoo that I just found.

    A quote from their, “perception management”, to assuage the herd: Under the heading: ‘What Is A Market Crash?’

    ‘To be sure, the market isn’t crashing inasmuch as the term “crashing” is even a quantifiable market condition. Declines in stocks and other assets are sometimes described in hyperbolic terms that offer little real substance about the significance of the move.’

    Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! They’ve done a remarkable job, “managing perception”, or as we say in the real world, changing definitions and lying, for as long as they have. The train may finally be arriving at the crossroads. Here is the rest of the article if you have an interest in a good laugh.

    IT’S HAPPENING: 16 high-profile COVID players accused of genocide and crimes against humanity
    Written by Michael J. Matt | Editor

    Editor’s Note: This story will not be picked up by the mainstream media, but it’s a sign of what’s to come as the pandemic winds down and people wake up from their three-year fever dream. Please read, download and share it.

    STORY AT-A-GLANCE

    According to The Desert Review, a slew of high-power figures in the COVID-19 pandemic and the push to mandate experimental COVID jabs have been accused of several crimes, Will These People Be Charged With Genocide?
    Fact Checked Seven applicants, on behalf of the British population, have filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court (ICC), accusing 16 individuals of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression.

    The 16 defendants include Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Peter Daszak, Bill and Melinda Gates, the CEOs of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson along with several other British authorities, as well as the presidents of the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Economic Forum (Klaus Schwab).
    According to the ICC complaint, the 16 defendants have violated the Nuremberg Code and Articles 6, 7, 8, 15, 21 and 53 of the Rome Statute.

    The Nuremberg Code is a set of medical research ethics principles that grew out of the “Doctors Trial” in Nuremberg following World War II. The war crimes tribunal at Nuremberg established 10 standards to which doctors must conform when performing experiments on human subjects.

    The ICC is a permanent, independent court that investigates crimes that concern the international community. Its activities are governed by an international treaty called the Rome Statute, which has been ratified by more than 120 countries, including the U.S. It can step in when a member state fails to take appropriate action to bring a criminal to justice. In theory, member states are supposed to cooperate with the court.

      “…as the pandemic winds down…” Wishful thinking. The Plandemic will not be over until we are all vaxxed and chipped.

      “…and people wake up…” I don’t see any awakening among the Covidians, just a lot of sleepwalking. If anything they are doubling down in their belief in St. Fauci, and becoming more offensive in their attacks on non-believers.

      The Covidians I know seem associate with me only in order to club me over the head with their “Truth”. There is almost no subject we can wade into without it becoming a conflict. My response: “So how ’bout those Lions, they gonna be in the Super Bowl?” I do most of my drinkin’ alone these days, but I do miss shootin’ pool.

    Great read today Mr. K. but where is that optimism that some accuse you of? About the only thing I am optimistic about is that some of us will be able to overcome the “party” system of our current government and can form something like the Common Sense Party. As a conservative thinking person I cringe at RFKJR’s many digs at Reagan, Bush and Trump although frankly I agree with most. The thing is I am able to overlook the partisan politics because the wealth of his knowledge is invaluable. I can only hope that people from both “sides” will be able to do the same and see through the bullshit of our current system.

    But- having said that, I think that horse has left the barn! There is no way of reforming our current system – it can only be destroyed. Dark days ahead for sure but I know there is someone in charge that will set things straight and He’s not the Republican wave in 2022!

    I thought that I recently saw her very much confused about what the govies and big pharma were shoveling at her. Seems like it no longer made sense to her, what with three young kids and all.

    ’bout time, girl.

    • BackRowHeckler January 24, 2022 at 2:20 pm #

      Good point. Chief State propagandists like Erin Burnett are well protected by their high salaries, gated communities, and sometimes by private security details. But their children are not; the kids are out there very vulnerable to the dystopian measures organizations like CNN promote. That’s why I’ve commented even Big Libs have to be a little worried about what’s going down now, specially Big Libs with young ones. While Erin Burnett mouth’s ‘defund the police’ and ‘systemic racism’ platitudes, she can’t help but note the beautiful young grad student stabbed to death in LA last week while at work in a high end furniture store … and who was doing the stabbing.

      For Whom the Bell Tolls — Well it tolls for Erin and the whole lot of them, who thought they were above it all, but are finding out different.

      • Blackbird January 24, 2022 at 3:14 pm #

        I’m sure well-paid liars like Erin Burnett have no problem ignoring who gets killed and who does the killing – their paycheck depends on it. I doubt they put their kids in the public schools despite all the wonderful diversity – ’cause ignorant racist white kids. No, their kids live in the same fantasy bubble as mom and dad – or preferably, mom and mom, or dad and dad, etc…

    “Wonder much about the eerie blank demeanor of Erin Burnett…”

    Erin Burnett used to work for a well-known so-called ‘financial’ network that is little more than a mouthpiece for Wall Street and she’s another member of the fraternity of Corporate State Media’s spinners of lies, horse manure, and pseudo-realities for America. In other words, she has been peddling copious amount of smelly horse brown stuff for many years over more than one manure-spreading media blowhorn.

    As for her ‘eerie blank demeanor’… this reflects the inner moral bankruptcy and emptiness of useful spirit and sense of decency that one must be devoid of in order to serve as an acolyte for today’s Corporate State Media’s garbage and manure peddlers.

    “… giving a speech that carefully and succinctly denoted the stupendous criminality of the US public health bureaucracy and the corporate-government fascist partnership with Pharma Inc. that has poisoned hundreds of millions of Americans in a medical experiment that has only begun to kill possibly more people than the Nazis ever dreamed of murdering.”

    Tricky Dick Nixon once said something like, “If the President does something (anything), it’s LEGAL”. In other words, the President is above the Law and can do anything at all and it’s ‘OK!’. Well, the current version of this philosophical atrocity is the idea that The State can utterly savage and destroy the health of countless people, and that’s all good and OK. In other words, if the State does it… it’s OK and LEGAL.

    And those bad citizens who don’t subscribe to this dark and twisted idea are awful and (drumroll please)… ‘DOMESTIC TERRRRO….!’

    “It’s not enough that the people of Western Civ have been battered by a contrived assault on their physical health; now they’ll watch themselves go broke and hungry.”

    The old, ‘You’ll own nothing and be Happy!’ has been updated to: ‘You’ll own nothing, have your health ruined, probably die within two years, go starving, do without necessary goods and services, take endless skin punctures until you leak blood out of your arms all day, continue to be assaulted by endless Corporate State horse manure and gaslighting… And YOU’LL BE SO HAPPY!’

    The traditional question after one year of a new President’s term: Are you better off today than you were a year ago?

    The question today is: Will anyone SURVIVE another year of this confused Chair-Sitter’s term?

    Want to know the answer? Just look into the eyes of Erin Burnett. If you dare.

I now know that, 90% of all medicine is not for anything else than profit for them. Low profit and effective medicines are bashed and marketed as ineffective because they go against their narrative and profit plans. One of them is wonder drug Ivermectin.

      I love the sanctions idea, like Russia give one damn about a bankrupt Western financial system with diminishing oil reserves putting on sanctions.

      Putin will just take what he wants and build his barricade against infiltration from the West. NATO keeps pushing Russia, Russia will push back.

          The US announces Putin will attack Ukraine.

          The Mighty Wurlitzer goes into high gear insisting that Putin has a Secret Plan to attack Ukraine.
          The easily fooled believe it and start insisting that if Putin doesn’t attack Ukraine he will look stupid.
          Putin continues to press for a peace treaty that Russia presented on Dec. 17th, demanding that NATO take its missiles out of Poland and Romania (which the US says are there to protect Europe from Iran, because they think we are stupid enough to believe what they say).
          Don’t believe what the media tells you.

        If we can shut off Russian gas to Europe, then we can sell gas to Europe. Supply down, demand up, what happens next? Higher prices for US consumers. Pretending to slap Russia around when the real goal is hardship for our own people – and higher profits for the oil companies. The retards playing anti-Russia cheerleader will be the ones freezing during the winter – and probably blaming Russia and demanding more sanctions!

      That’s my thesis: not direct killing, but rather infertility is the goal.

      Killing >7 billion over a short period (<5 years) is likely to get people's attention. Reduced birthrate, higher rates of miscarriages, over the next couple decades can be hidden in gov't "statistics", and explained away by our good doctors. In fact – they'll probably have a "vaccine" for that!

      And the vaxxed will never admit they were fooled. We can count on the vaxxed to defend their killers: "But waaaay over 100% would have died if mama hadn't taken the vax! And so would have mama – and everyone she came into contact with!" Miscarriage? It's the fault of the unvaxxed!

          An article in The Independent yesterday (hit piece on everyone involved with Sunday’s rally), which I now can’t find, as it’s been taken over by others slamming Kennedy for comparisons to the Holocaust, stated that *only* 11,000 and however many Americans had died after the vax. Even when they quote the number, they see it as nothing. I couldn’t believe it. The first tactic was to deny the deaths. The new tactic is to say you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.

          I presume they don’t know and wouldn’t care that the swine flu vaxx of 1976 was withdrawn after 26 deaths/serious adverse events.

            “But while the crowd and the speakers brought in a diverse array of ideas and people from the vaccine sceptic world, that was all it brought. Freedom on this day meant freedom from fact checks, too. There was no one there to challenge the false claims about the dangers of the vaccine. No one, for example, told the crowd that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has received only 11,468 reports of death among people who received a Covid-19 vaccine after more than 529 million doses (0.0022 per cent) — and that not all of those cases will be due to the vaccine. Or that a body of scientific evidence shows that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks.”

            The callousness they have induced in the public is amazing.
            And even more amazing is the Double Think involved in wailing over virus deaths while simultaneously blowing off vax deaths.
            Miscarriages are an individual process, usually not announced to the world, and easily accepted as natural, since approx 30% of pregnancies do naturally abort.
            I don’t think that the people watching a young healthy person dropping dead after the shot, and saying “Could have happened anyway” are going to make any connections to the vax when infertility rises.

        They are already transitioning to demanding that we accept one forced “universal” clot shot injection per year, after moving the window by saying they were going to demand one every 3 months. Squeeze and release.

        If they are successful, they can put whatever they want into a shot that you must take once per year in order to keep your status green and be allowed to participate in the economy.

          Hope I am wrong about this.

          Malone should return to research gene therapies for breast cancer.

          BTW, an old acquaintance recently told me that she had had three bouts of breast cancer , the cancer being related to a gene. Frankly, I had never heard of this.

          But, she said, she did not pass the gene to her children.

    Erin Burnett’s most memorable TV moment happened in August 2007 when she was on CNBC with Jim Cramer and he delivered his famous “They know nothing” rant. Erin was trying to squeeze in a word edgewise but Cramer was on a tear and wouldn’t let her. (As an aside, she was wearing a dress that has probably made her ask many times since, “what ever possessed me to buy that dress?”)

    I thought pretty highly of her in those earlier years of her career but since leaving the world of strictly business journalism I could probably count on one hand the number of minutes I’ve watched her since she moved on to bigger things.

    Regarding our hosts description of her facial demeanor I can only say, it has to be hard to deliver a script that you may not actually believe in. I don’t know what Erin Burnett believes.

      You know I wonder how many of the bozos on CNN and MSNBC have editorial “pistols” pointed at them. It is hard, really hard to believe that this many people can believe the line of BS they are spouting.

    From James Delingpole, here’s a taste of his article at Conservative Woman.

    But the bigger issue is this: what we are experiencing now is a false dawn. All those mainstream media types who misled you during the ‘pandemic’ are now misleading you about the aftermath. They are making out that our nightmare is over when, in reality, it’s only just beginning. This may not be understood by the ordinary folk – ‘the Normies’ – who still get their information from the BBC or their daily paper. But it’s certainly well understood by those of us who have been right all along, the ‘conspiracy theorists’.

  57. JohnAZ January 24, 2022 at 5:09 pm #

    We are stuck. It is what happens with excessive debt.

    It actually happened in the 70s with stagflation then.

    The government is trying to preserve itself with tax and spend and more every year.

    Trump tries to slow it and couldn’t. His election loss was a blow to folks who saw what was coming.

    So now, here we are. Too much spending, too many greenbacks being printed due to relief efforts, inflation starts up again. People start hoarding anticipating higher future prices, all the way up to house buying, supplies run short, prices go up again, people want higher wages, the amount of money goes up again, inflation rises.

    Okay, here comes the Fed. Slow down the growth of money by raising interest rates, right? Sure, watch the amount of national debt skyrocket due to higher interest rates, watch the markets fall because of higher costs of doing business, watch the economy falter because of higher interest costs for capital improvements and R&D, every administration since 2008 has forced the Fed to put off rate increases, now we are going to pay the piper.

    Stagflation. The damage of both inflation and recession at the same time.

    The end of 70s stagflation was the Fed finally putting the brakes on in 1980 with Reagan willing to take the hit. He did, with a large recession the consequence.

    Biden has not got the guts to do what Reagan did, but we may still see the Fed tighten in spite of Biden. We are possibly seeing the beginning currently.

    Remember when the Deep State goes down, we all do.

    • TaxDonkey January 24, 2022 at 9:17 pm #

      JAZ, you crazy if you think the Fed is going to tighten. The markets are so dependent on easy money that even the MENTION of tightening is causing spasms, much less any ACTUAL tightening. We can see from the last 10 years that there is nothing more important to the Fed than keeping the markets levitated. Don’t ask me why, just follow their actions. Many economists, like Alisdair McCleod, are convinced that if the markets go down, so goes the currency, and thus their magic wand becomes flaccid. The central bank digital currency is nowhere near ready for prime time, so they don’t want to lose the printing press just yet, I wouldn’t think.

        TIME

        “Kid of the Year”

        Time Magazine is promoting a boy for “Kid of the Year” because of his public advocacy for transgenderism — even though the boy’s mother declared him to be transgender only after she failed to convert the boy’s feminine character to be more like a boy.

        The magazine reported January 12 about the boy, Kai Shappley.

        • BackRowHeckler January 24, 2022 at 8:23 pm #

          Kai Shappley has a bright future, specially if times get hard and the going gets rough. Just think what he can parlay his new found fame into.

    • GreenAlba January 24, 2022 at 7:11 pm #

      Hello CM, thanks for asking! Healthwise he seems to be fine just now, except that he gets sleepy during the day – I think he’s been like that since the vaxxes. Although a couple of weeks after his post-booster collapse, he suffered a very painful bladder infection. To me, that’s a sign of the state of his post-vaxx immune system, but he’s not going to accept that. He just treated himself with some anti-biotics that were in the house, so there isn’t even a record of it with his GP. This is just another way that no-one joins the dots, to my mind anyway.

      He’s getting stir crazy as he can’t go back to work until he’s seen the occupational health folks on 9th Feb. A tick-box exercise and of course I won’t be there to emphasise that it happened a week after his booster!

    Whatever. I love how right-wingers are absolutely obsessed with CNN. Personally, I never watch any cable news because it’s all garbage. But it’s hilarious how right-wingers absolutely adore Fox, the poster child of cable fake news, and crow about how Fox has the highest ratings of any cable “news” network while also pretending it isn’t “mainstream media”, which they claim to abhor. Meanwhile. CNN’s ratings are very low but, apparently, CNN is “the enemy of the people” (the very few people who watch it, I guess?) and is responsible, in the minds of right-wingers, for all manner of lies and propaganda that have brainwashed the America-hating masses who, again, it must be stressed, do not watch CNN very much. The cognitive dissonance on the right is truly mind-boggling. How do they keep up with such a twisted set of mythologies?

    I’ll bet ya about 8,500 young US troopies couldn’t give a shit less about the ConVid fraud about now.

    Pentagon puts 8,500 troops on ‘heightened alert’ as U.S. weighs military action against Russia

    Among the options presented to the president was to move troops and equipment from other parts of Europe into Poland, Romania and other countries neighboring Ukraine.

    That’s a real life, they shoot back to kill enemy with weapons that actually work you’ve got there boys, girls, and trannies; and you’ll be carrying out your little war game fantasy on their territory in the dead of a Russian winter! Better stow that desert gear you’ve been so comfortable in all these past many years and hope Uncle Sugar’s got something a little warmer in stock.

    And for God’s sake, pay no attention to those old stories you’ve probably heard about the Nazi’s being forced to eat their shoe leather during their seige of Stalingrad. The modern shit’s all synthetic, so it wouldn’t do you any good anyway. Hope you checked the box for that term life insurance policy option on your deployment form too.

    On the plus side, the Russians being pretty reasonable people for the most part, will probably agree to bury you where you fall, thereby saving the bankrupt regime in DC the expense of shipping you back home for burial. Assuming the feral dogs don’t get to your scattered body parts first.

    But don’t worry, it’s customary for the Prez to send out a “personally signed” complimentary form letter of condolences (suitable for framing!) to your parents after the fact, so there’s always that. And with any luck you all will get your very own campaign monument in Ol’ DC in another 50 years or so, assuming there’s still a federal government around to fund it or a nation’s capital to put it in.

        There ya go! I’ve always thought the pols’ preoccupation with return of remains – sometimes even decades after the fact – was a little silly. To paraphrase the HillaBeast: They came, they saw, they died. Bury them on the spot and move on. Not to mention the fact that in modern warfare what they’re burying is often just pieces/parts, sometimes mixed in with others’ pieces parts. A human stew, if you will.

        Ideally, the west will see mass defections and refusals to deploy. It’s time to quit obeying the decisions of the illegitimate DC occupiers, and there’s no better place to start than with their imperial guard.

      He said that Russia will protect the citizens of eastern Ukraine from attack by the Kiev nazis.. I believe him.
      He said that any war provoked by the USA will not be fought in Europe or on Russia soil, it will be taken to American soil. I believe him.

          The Donbass has a well equipped military.
          Russia can help with air support and taking out ammo depots and headquarters with US/NATO handlers.
          They took out a headquarters in Syria that was said to have held top level military brass from multiple countries. All countries involved did not announce it publicly though.
          If they need to send troops they can do it like they did in Georgia and Kazakhstan, go into Donbass only, take care of business, and then get out.
          The mockingbird media makes shit up, so it really doesn’t even matter what Russia does or doesn’t do.

    • Socrates-Detroit January 26, 2022 at 1:02 am #

      If the US sends troops, they will be as “advisors”.

      If like the advisors in Vietnam, their “advising” is under fire, where they are actual combatants, some will die in combat. Many of them will be blown up, others, like soccer stars, will just drop dead in battle, a result of their experimental mRNA jab.

      I suspect, if the US does anything, it will be “high-tech” and “low-people”.

      Americans like gadgets and drones. Our track record with troops is either not good (Afghanistan, Vietnam) or over-inflated (Gulf War I, WW2, WW1, the US Civil War were all by US forces that were larger and more powerful–thank you, US industrial capacity!).

      While Americans don’t really care much about dead GIs these days (this is not 1968, when middle America’s drafted sons were dying, and where one out of every 100 Americans was on active-duty; today all-volunteer means very little middle America skin in the game, and only one of every 200 plus is active-duty), it’s bad politics.

      Perhaps the Americans will hack the Russians. After all, America has the biggest brains, does it not? Apple. Google. Microsoft. Maybe they can “hack” the Russians.

      But wait–the Russians depend on computers–but American society much more so. Russians use cash more. They don’t need to drive as much. What if the Russians hack the US? How will we know? Will the US government tell us “the reason your credit cards are not working is because the Russians attacked them”? I think not.

      It is an example of asymmetrical warfare.

      But I think the cyber front is just one of many potential unanticipated consequences of a conflict with Russia, a conflict for which current and past US governments would be 95% responsible.

    Europe has always been engulfed in war with few, rare intermittent periods of peace. Ukraine has always been a no man’s land in a tug of war between Poland and Russia. Ukraine was an appendage of Russia for over 300 years. Now, the Americans are playing the role of the Poles.

      Geopolitically, Taking East Ukraine to the Dneiper River is a genius stroke for Russia. Looking at the map, two items stand out.

      1. East Ukraine sticks deeply into Russia on the East. Fairly close to Volgograd. And really close to the Caucasus oil fields around Baku. There is no way Russia would want NATO forces in this area.

      2. On the bottom of East Ukraine is the Crimea peninsula. Russia’s naval port.

          “Sevastopol is their [Russia’s] only warm water port.”

          Exactly. Historically, without unfettered access to this one, ice free port, Russia becomes a mainly landlocked country.

          How many ice free ports does the United States have?

          More. Most recently, Russia sacrificed blood and treasure, (mainly blood) in protracted battles with invaders from the most recent invaders from the West [Nazi Germany], over the region. As far as I’m concerned, they deserve this region.

Casualties were in the millions including civilian casualties.

            ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — A 49-year-old man is charged with murder for allegedly shooting a man last week outside a St. Paul liquor store in the city’s North End neighborhood.

            Trinis Edwards, of St. Paul, is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the Dec. 27 shooting outside Big Discount Liquors, court documents filed Monday in Ramsey County show. Last week, police identified the victim as 44-year-old Kenneth Davis Jr.

            According to a criminal complaint, Edwards shot Davis after a dispute in the liquor store. A store employee told investigators that Davis, a loyal customer, tried to stop Edwards from stealing a $12 bottle of Taaka vodka and flashed a handgun, telling Edwards that he had a license to carry.

            I assume she would ace a college statistics course. Many women can. But getting them to use it in real life – say outside of their job – good fucking luck with that.

            So since she refuses to be rational, it’s just a matter of trying to balance progressive agendas, for example, Black vs Women. All men are evil, but Black men are better because they’re oppressed. Shit like that. And then of course there’s her desire to win arguments any which way she can, logic be damned.

    Evidently the University of Arizona is partnering with Ukraine to build the ‘American University Kyiv’. Commencement begins this fall in business management, computer science, engineering and medicine. This somehow is at odds with JHK’s machinations to the contrary. The US sells 2.5 billion worth of goods to Ukraine annually which is very pleasing and interesting to the US businesses involved, some of which are located in the Empire State, I presume.

          Steven Yaxley-Lennon was an attention whore when I wrote about him before and I have no reason to believe he is anything other than that now.

          He jeopardised the conviction of evil rapists of under-age girls by prancing around taking photographs at the court and sending them to people, which could have meant, because of English trial laws, that the men got off on a technicality.

          That’s how I know that he’s primarily an attention whore, way more than he cares about the actual victims.

      One of the main pollutants that has changed the balance is estrogen itself.

      Two huge estrogen sources

      Meat , estrogen given to steers to fatten them up.

      Plastics, heating plastic ware enclosed food releases estrogen into the food. Could it be that all these nanochunks of plastics are putting estrogen compounds into our environment. Nano plastics are everywhere, pole to pole, Marianas trench to Mt. Everest.

      Estrogen dominance is the disease that the presence of estrogen creates. Men become more effeminate and sperm counts drop. Women have breast cancer epidemics.

      Again, do not f—- with Mother Nature.

        Don’t forget atrazine, the most common toxin found in our water supply. An endocrine disruptor that mimics estrogen. It’s a systemic herbicide too, meaning you can’t wash it off. 90% of it used on corn. Banned by the EU in 2003, our diligent regulators have made sure it remains available to us in the land of the freak and the home of the slave.

      I think it’s a tease, as you put it, Thwack. Putin will take Donbas with irregular troops and saboteurs, like he did with Crimea. No need for any major combat operations or widespread bloodshed … or risk of nuclear war.

      If the West does get involved it will be interesting to see how the Russians treat young female NATO POWs, especially attractive ones. Inserting women into combat situations against a modern adversary like Russia is an idea that hasn’t been tested yet. Will Russian infantrymen be perfect gentlemen, adhering to the Geneva Convention? Or will they be something else entirely?

(He also spent 7 years working for GCHQ. He knows how things work and he’s a smart guy.) He came back from Ukraine, where he has contacts, and said no-one was talking about Russia – they were talking about getting to the supermarket without QR codes.

      They would not be risking war with NATO without plans to annex East Ukraine. The Dneiper River makes a perfect defensive border.

      BTW, a lot of Mexico still does not recognize the US acquisition of the Southwest. Does this sound familiar, saturate across the border with your nationals then secede? There is a little difference in which side is the strongest. However, do you think that the Liberalized Deep State sitting on the East Coast would fight secession movements in the Southwest? Even California acts like a separate entity from the East coast.

    The outlines of the issues are as clear as day, covid vaccines don’t prevent transmission, nor infection, nor, in many cases, serious sickness and hospitalization or even death. There’s been no long term testing as there just hasn’t been enough time.

    They pissed all over doctors from different climes that have been saying, to no avail, that early home treatment with anti-inflammatories and anti-coagulants is highly effective in preventing serious sickness and death. Not to mention cheap.

    Lockdowns were nonsense, ineffective in preventing transmission, and destructive as can be, making the Amazons of the world filthy rich and in the process wrecking people’s lives and what’s left of Main Street not only in America but many other countries.

    They lied about the origins of the virus, they tried to suppress the truth about it. They say follow the ‘science’ yet the ‘science’ is what brought about this disease in the first place, the ‘science’ has been the problem all along.

    Now they’re telling us, gosh, golly, the Russians are massing troops in preparation for an invasion of Ukraine. Maybe they should tell us again just why the fuck this affects anyone but the Ukraine and maybe its immediate neighbors and tell us again why such weighty countries as exist over yonder can’t deal with this. They have no armies worthy of the name? That’s their problem.

    But, to the extent that the American elite are trying to distract from their own monumental incompetence in damn near everything they touch with a war against Russia, it is a very serious problem for a country that’s as bankrupt and corrupt as can be and which needs to seriously take stock after the multi-decade Afghanistan debacle. Another giant fuck-up, military or otherwise, is the last thing the US needs.

    Here’s a perspective on the U.S. Nato / Russia conflict published today o the World Socialist Website. Despite their somewhat overwrought presentation, their critique is worth reading:

    “A war with Russia would rapidly escalate into a global conflagration, inevitably involving China and, for that matter, every country in the world. The US-NATO provocations have made the danger of a nuclear war greater than at any point since the height of the Cold War conflict between the US and the Soviet Union.

    It may appear that only the insane would provoke a war with such potentially catastrophic consequences. There is, however, a logic to this madness.

    First, there are the geopolitical calculations of US imperialism. The reference by Biden at his recent press conference to Russia’s eight time zones and immense resources indicate the criminal calculations that motivate US military planning.

    US and European imperialism view Russia, as Hitler did in 1941, as a vast arena for plunder. Through a combination of war and internal destabilization, imperialism seeks to instigate the breakup of Russia. Their aim is to carve up Russia into numerous puppet states that would exist as colonies of the major imperialist powers.”

    Why the US and NATO want war with Russia

      A war with Russia would rapidly escalate into a global conflagration, inevitably involving China and, for that matter, every country in the world.

      That sentence is hyperbolic, for sure, and betrays a very western-centric world view, at least militarily. But it would definitely put the globalization project on hold for the foreseeable future and certainly signal the end of US dollar denominated hegemony for good. So in that respect, perhaps that’s part of what’s playing out here? Crash the dollar and transition to a new digital currency, as planned, and have Russia to conveniently pin the blame on. That process is inevitable sooner or later either way, but this, in combination with the ongoing CovidCon, would finish the job nicely. Biden also serves as a very convenient and expedient straw man to sacrifice to the task.

        Dis

        Twenty five years ago, Russia and the US finally figured out what MAD means with submarines being the convincer.

        Now we have both sides figuring that a war is winnable. BS!!

        MAD is still here. Discussing the winnability of this situation is insane.

        Biden is figuring away to give East Ukraine to Russia then building a real defensive barrier. That is optimistic , I know. IMHO, the Deep State has not a clue what to do.

        • Disaffected January 25, 2022 at 11:00 am #

          East Ukraine IS Russian. So is the rest of it. Has been for longer than the US has been a glorified colony of GB. And after 30 years of encirclement, Russia is out of territory to retreat to, as they’ve clearly communicated to the Neo-Nazi’s in DC, who only hear what they want to hear.

          Looks like we’re about to find out if Putin was bluffing about all their advancements hypersonic weaponry. Putin doesn’t impress me as the type to bluff. And he’s also clearly stated that their primary targets will be the decision making and command and control centers from which the west starts their bullshit. If I were Biden, I’d be living full time in that underground bunker they’ve got prepared for him about now.

          • JohnAZ January 25, 2022 at 11:13 am #

            Agreed. Our government is the culpable party here, for lots of years.

            Best advice, stay the hell out of there, let Europe figure out the best balance of power for themselves.

            Biden, the coward, has no business telling anyone what to do.

            I have been saying for a long time that IMHO, Russia is right behind us in the crosshairs of the globalist bastards.

            Putin knows this, we are to stupid. in appearance, to realize it. In appearance because what was elected in 2020 almost finished the job of the globalist takeover of the US. 20th century America’s worst enemy is the Deep State, not Russia.

            Helpful maps. See the countries that have joined NATO since 1997. They’re obviously trying to encircle Russia. Putin has been more than patient. perhaps foolishly so. Or perhaps Russia wasn’t ready before, but it is now.

    This is yet another in a long line of reasons why no one should idolize rock stars, and stop imagining they are anti-establishment. There was a long heated discussion about Neil Young’s tendency to sell out awhile back up here, I think the side that called him a sell-out can safely say they won the debate, now.

    Neil Young demands Spotify choose between his music or Joe Rogan’s podcasts

    “Legendary musician Neil Young issued an ultimatum to the Spotify streaming music service to choose between his music or Joe Rogan’s podcasts.

    Young posted an open letter to Spotify, which entered into a $100 million deal with Rogan to host his podcasts, calling on it to dump Rogan over what he saw as misinformation on the coronavirus.

    “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them,” wrote Young. “Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”

    Rogan has been criticized by many for advocating for alternate treatments for the coronavirus. In one instance, he advised younger people to avoid the vaccine because their death and hospitalization risk was so low.

    “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” said Young to his management team and record label. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”

      Well, ladies and germs;

      Great news from Newsmax…a site you can trust.

      The Department of Homeland Security’s new “catch and release” policy on the border is deemed a screaming success! Instead of the bad old policy of “detain or return”, the illegal immigrants are now made to promise,,,cross-your-heart-and-hope-to-die that, months after release into the US, they will show up at their court hearings.

      Some immigrants were burdened with ankle bracelet locators, and had their cellphones tracked…AND IT WORKED!

      Fully half of the 100,000 illegals complied with the law…only 47,000+ of them gave a hearty “fuck you” (a rough translation from Spanish) and vanished into the ether.

      https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/migrants-tracking-dhs/2022/01/25/id/1053903/

    • Paula D January 25, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

      From a 1882 English newspaper. Apparently Europeans weren’t always so concerned with proper burial of their war dead.
      “It is estimated that more than a million of bushels of human and inhuman bones were imported last year from the continent of Europe into the port of Hull. The neighbourhood of Leipsic, Austerlitz, Waterloo, and of all the places where, during the late bloody war, the principal battles were fought, have been swept alike of the bones of the hero and of the horse which he rode. Thus collected from every quarter, they have been shipped to the port of Hull, and thence forwarded to the Yorkshire bone grinders, who have erected steam-engines and powerful machinery, for the purpose of reducing them to a granulary state. In this condition they are sent chiefly to Doncaster, one of the largest agricultural markets in that part of the country, and are there sold to the farmers to manure their lands. The oily substance, gradually evolving as the bone calcines, makes a more substantial manure than almost any other substance, particularly human bones. It is now ascertained beyond a doubt, by actual experiment upon an extensive scale, that a dead soldier is a most valuable article of commerce; and, for ought known to the contrary, the good farmers of Yorkshire are, in a great measure, indebted to the bones of their children for their daily bread. It is certainly a singular fact, that Great Britain should have sent out such multitudes of soldiers to fight the battles of this country upon the continent of Europe, and should then import their bones as an article of commerce to fatten her soil! “

            @ Green Alba

            I’m curious whether you, GA, think people should write as they prefer to write or whether they should follow and adhere to standards established by professional linguists. I am excluding here writing that is employing “artistic license.”

            As you may have guessed, I favor following standards. When I first heard about ‘the’ Ukraine and ‘the’ Crimea no longer being considered correct I actually went to the trouble of contacting the department within the NYT which decides such issues. They explained that their linguists along with the linguists in the employ of other major newspapers (Washington Post, Miami Herald, LA Times, WSJ, etc.) in one of their periodic get togethers decided that the use of ‘the’ was no longer deemed correct. The person with whom I spoke at the NYT gave me the reasoning which I, unfortunately, do not have in writing. Their declaration on this issue happened about 30 years ago. If you read any of these papers you will find that they have eliminate the ‘the’.

            My question to you, GA, is what about the major UK newspapers? Do they use ‘the’ before Ukraine? Are they consistent? or is it up to the preference of a particular author?

            BTW, ‘the’ USA, ‘the’ Philippines, ‘the’ Netherlands, are still deemed correct but I don’t know the rationale.
