Time, the saying goes, is nature’s way of making sure that everything doesn’t happen at once. So now, maybe, we’re at the event-horizon where nature is suspended, because everything seems to be happening at once. The weeks ahead will determine whether we are a coherent society that can function on the basis of a firm consensual reality, or just a convocation of battling narratives designed to conceal anything that quacks like truth, all veering toward failure.

Up this afternoon (Friday) for instance: the results of the Maricopa, AZ, election audit. The New York Times has declared a preliminary draft of the audit “a cap-gun ending to an inquiry whose backers hinted would turn up a cannonade of fraud.” Their conclusion: “Joe Biden” won the 2020 election fair-and-square. That would be momentous if it were true, but is it? Or is it just the juke of a player that typically runs zig-zags through the facts? The Times certainly has an interest in, shall we say, getting ahead of the story in its never-ending quest to control the narrative — as opposed to delivering actual news fit to print. I’m standing by to sort out the jokers from the face-cards.

Otherwise, it’s been a less than stellar month for the putative winner of that 2020 contest, the media figment known as “Joe Biden.” His open border policy flipped savagely on him as a nine-month influx of Central and South Americans (and opportunists from even more distant lands) turned into the bad optics of some 15,000 Haitians (most up from living in Chile, Colombia and other non-Haitian places) flooded the zone at Del Rio, Texas. Predictably, their insta-town under the border bridge turned septic when the few Port-a-Johns dropped off there boiled over — instant Haiti! — and the appalling situation could no longer be hidden from the news media.

Federal border agents next tried policing the scene on horseback — arguably a daintier approach than driving SUVs through the mob — and the news media instantly parlayed the scene of horsemen using the reins to control their mounts into a narrative about slaves getting whipped in the cottonfields. In other words, another chapter in the testament of “systemic racism.” Even the notorious race hustler Al Sharpton drifted down to Del Rio to sprinkle a little gasoline on a potential fire, but his audience heckled him into submission and the operation fizzled.

Meanwhile, “Joe Biden” cranked up a cosmetic airlift sending a few Haitians back to Haiti — which they had fled from years ago to live in South America — at the same time shuttling another cohort of Haitians over to Houston and other cities around the USA, as if nobody will ever catch on to the shell game being played. Any way you cut it, the fiasco on the US / Mexican border had turned into a big loss for the Big Guy since the economic alarm bells ringing across the country tell you the last thing we need is more illegal immigrants to compete with actual citizens for a declining number of low-paying jobs.

The Big Guy also had a bad week on the family grift front as the story broke, first on Politico and then elsewhere like a brushfire, that the trove of incriminating memoranda on Hunter Biden’s laptop was for-real, and that the concerted effort to hide all that muck from the voters during last year’s election campaign was a completely dishonest operation. Add up all the memos and emails on Hunter’s hard-drive and you have a pretty clear digital trail of a major racketeering operation that can no longer be denied. So, will Merrick Garland’s DOJ keep ignoring it?

The Attorney General was probably forced to approve John Durham’s recent indictment of Hillary Clinton errand-boy, lawyer Michael Sussmann, from the DC Lawfare Central outfit called Perkins Coie. I say forced because it was an open-and-shut case, and denial by Mr. Garland would have been seen as just another RussiaGate ploy by an agency hopelessly tainted by years of official criminal misconduct — and let’s assume that Mr. AG Garland does not want to be dragged into that mess, especially as Mr. Durham is unraveling it. And the Special Counsel signaled that he is doing just that by implicating a wheel of culpable public figures in a 27-page indictment for Mr. Sussmann’s simple crime of lying to the FBI, which could have been accomplished in two concise paragraphs. That is, expect the Sussmann indictment to not be the end of a matter that could be tending toward a massive RICO indictment against the entire DNC wax museum of liars and seditionists.

Coincidentally — and on rather a separate track — we have China’s latest export to the advanced economies of the world: the meltdown of its bond market as signified in the wreck of super-gigantic real estate conglomerate Evergrande. Behold the broken daisy-chain of obligations stretching to the furthest reaches of global finance and the deleterious effect of that on capital markets everywhere to follow. The central banks are pulling out the last stops now to prevent a general meltdown of hallucinated “wealth” around the world and you can probably measure the success of that last-ditch effort in days as we enter the cursed month of October, when skeletons dance on the graves of lost fortunes. The stage-managers behind “Joe Biden” look forward to that as they would to so many stakes driven through their degenerate hearts.

Speaking of hearts, there is the current heart-of-the-matter, the Covid-19 engineered bioweapon being used internationally to suppress formerly free citizens of formerly democratic republics. It becomes more obvious each day that everything connected to this extravaganza is other than it appears to be. Chiefly, the vaccine is not a vaccine and it will probably end up killing more people than the Covid-19 disease and its variants. A lot of those deaths will be caused in the months ahead by damage to people’s hearts and other organs from spike proteins generated via mRNA shots. The reported official numbers are all lies of one kind or another, issued by agencies primarily concerned not with public health but with covering asses at the highest level, so do not trust them. If you haven’t had a vax shot, better seriously consider steering clear of your government’s desperate attempts to get the job done.

Events are converging. Everything is happening at once. Narratives are in collapse. Governments may soon commence to fall. Food and critical supplies of parts for things needed to run advanced societies are up next. What will you decide to do about yourself, your community, and your country?

    Funny how last year at this time nobody was vaxxed, COVID was in remission and new cases were falling. Now a good 50% of us have had The Magic Potion and COVID is roaring back. Yeah, yeah, I know. It’s a disease of the unvaxxed. Makes perfect sense.

    • MaryQueen September 24, 2021 at 10:10 am #

      Right? Obviously the ‘variants’ are vaccine injuries. Oh and now some doctors won’t treat the vaxx injured because they are in denial and/or have their marching orders to push the vaxx.

    Arizona Audit Confirms Trump Lost: https://americanyellowvest.wpcomstaging.com/2021/09/24/arizona-audit-proves-trump-lost/

    • Zoltar September 24, 2021 at 10:11 am #

      One state out of fifty. Regardless of how Arizona sorts out, there is abundant evidence of election night chicanery at other other polling locations throughout the country.

      • toktomi September 24, 2021 at 11:34 am #

        @Zoltar

        So, are we pretending that presidential elections are still about the battle of people’s votes?

        How could they be anything more than cyber games with no preferred outcome?

        To be even the least bit concerned about any of these machinations is delusionary and a failure to envision a more probable bigger picture.

    • Ron Anselmo September 24, 2021 at 10:22 am #

      If you wake up on November 4th, to news that four states halted vote counting at the same time in the middle of the night, counting only to be resumed later, you can be pretty sure the election you are hearing about is either in the US or Sudan.

      • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 11:04 am #

        Yes – that was the big “tell” that skullduggery was afoot.

        Interestingly, with a population of about 40 million people, California was magically able to count all of their votes with MINUTES of the closure of the polls in last week’s recall election of the communist Gavin Newsom.

        Isn’t that special?

        • thirdcoastlegend September 24, 2021 at 11:52 am #

          You’d think the big stair step in Potato Joe’s cumulative vote total plot would have been obvious, even to normies.

    • benr September 25, 2021 at 8:34 am #

      So just who do we believe as there are reports of plenty of problems.

      “Officials found several issues with more than 50,000 ballots, including duplicate ballots and signature issues. The legislature also shared disappointment in the county’s lack of cooperation throughout the process.”

      Obviously there is something very wrong with voting in this country.

      Widespread reporting of people in the California recall election having already cast their ballots with people showing up to vote wishing to know how they voted, when they voted and for whom they voted.

      I am of the opinion voter fraud should be akin to treason with serious and very stiff penalties for those caught and convicted.

      • Redneck Liberal September 25, 2021 at 8:50 am #

        ’ Obviously there is something very wrong with voting in this country.

        For sure! Too many people with whom you disagree are getting to vote! This clearly must be stopped. Several states are showing the way in voter suppression legislation. Thank Dog someone has their heads screwed on correctly!

        • benr September 26, 2021 at 7:36 am #

          Obviously the Socialist loving scumbag likes what has happened to the country since Joe Biden lied and cheated his way into the Whitehouse.

      We much be reading different accounts, but then maybe you are reading the Arizona Republic, which is to the left of Stalin. No, in fact they have found tens of thousands of illegal votes, including ballets sent in without signatures. The Arizona AG is now taking over the investigation. Biden did not win, but getting his corrupt butt out of office will be a real problem, as will his marxist coterie.

      Dr. Paul is now the arch enemy of the death cult.

      All he has to do is lay low & not offend the vaxxed.
      When they realize the grievous harm inflicted on them & their progeny

          Probably because Citizen Gates and others think we need to halve the world’s population ASAP, and if you get rid of the allegedly-educated and their progeny first, it’ll be easy to finish the job; whereas leaving alive those who understand the difference between rights and privileges, you run the risk of a counter-revolution.

          Even though Biden allegedly would lose to Trump today, there are still 38 months till the next presidential election. Given that the Commu-Democrats are shipping Haitians, Afghans, and whoever else they’ve allowed into the country to swing states, and given Silicon Valley’s ability to swing vote totals, it seems unlikely that there will ever be another honest election in the United States. It was a great place to grow up, but it sure seems to be slipping into Third World slum status.

            This interview between Chris Martenson and David Icke who many called a conspiracy theorist pretty much echos what you said. Poor David took a lot of flak but over the years he’s pretty much nailed as he calls it “The Outcome” and now we are uncovering “The Journey”.

  4. Walter B September 24, 2021 at 9:36 am #

    You know what people are going to do about themselves, their communities, and their country – NOTHING! So I suppose that was a rhetorical question James. The governing principle over people’s actions or lack thereof in a society where so many have had so much for so long and have taken it all for grated remains NIMBY – Not In My Backyard. Not until the Chinese hoards march down their streets in victory parades celebrating not a single casualty in their takeover (purchase) of what was ours and will soon be theirs, will any of them wake up. And probably not even then. No one will fight the new master when no one was willing to call out the old master for screwing them in the dirt. I may have been wrong about there being no joy in “I told you so”, because I am starting to feel like I may enjoy watching this nation get what it asked for.

    • JTinMD September 24, 2021 at 10:02 am #

      In the comments below Mr K’s prior missive I shared a personal story, the point of which was that depressed people often deeply wish for something catastrophic to happen in the wider world. I’m seeing it here in spades. Not judging, for it’s in me as well. And I think it’s a rich vein that we might mine for truth and wisdom.

      Another thing I’ve seen here lately is the use of “hoard” for “horde.” Not bidding for Q’s job. Just sayin’.

      • Walter B September 24, 2021 at 10:23 am #

        Oh it’s depressing as hell, no doubt and after serving the public for the last 6 years I should be chronically depressed myself. Fortunately for me I expected this and after putting forth a super-human effort only to confirm the fact that Americans actually embrace corruption as a way of doing business, well you reap what you sew.

        Personally I have been blessed with a wonderful and productive life. I will have earned just about $2M dollars and have lived my 67 years living the life of a king. I am thankful and grateful to God for all He has done for me.

        Watching my nation decay and collapse, sometimes even physically is what is so disturbing. How anyone can embrace the dirty, old sock in the White House as a good thing shatters my faith in my fellow humans. I am certainly sad at watching this farce play out, but not to worry, it’s not bothering me in the least, I saw it coming.

            Neurodoc, an honest scientist, is outraged by the corruption and bulleskinyatta he’s seen. I am quite certain that Walter B, who has truly walked the walk, is even more outraged.

            He went to war to do what he could. The Newark/Elizabeth area is one of my old stomping grounds, so I’m heartily grateful to have him back and them both here. Pace, friends, lesser noobs like me depend on you.

          • Walter B September 24, 2021 at 6:50 pm #

            You need more data I am happy to provide it so you can make an intelligent comment. I will have earned that amount over the course of my 50 year working career, ALL working in the private sector with the most in one year as a facility manager at $82K. I ran my own engineering business designing, selling and, installing conveyor systems for retailers for 15 years at $75K annual salary. The last 6 years I have served as a committeeman and the last two years as mayor for $1/year. I also acted as temporary township administrator (a $40K salary job) for free.

            My idea of living like a king is certainly a lot more affordable than Bill Gates’ I am sure, but then, I know what is valuable and I seriously doubt that he does. Do you sir, because a vast majority of Americans ALL live like kings, they simply are too selfish and perhaps greedy to realize it.

            WOW, GA that was so kind of you, thank you. You and I have crossed swords here before and you have struck me many a deep blow yet you have always had my respect. If I come across as thinking I am something special, I apologize, but what I am is someone that is seriously saddened by what has happened here. A jaded public that cannot be bothered to take any responsibility in the own communities other than their children’s sporting activities and worst of all who openly accept the rampant corruption that IS our political system. In fact, ALL of our systems are so corrupt that they have all pretty much become non-functional. Al Capone had a thousand times more friends than Elliot Ness ever had. Sad, realty sad.

          Ah, Walter B the Boom lament. You are the classic example of why your generation needs the hook off the world stage. Your statement reads almost like a satirist wrote it as it is filled will the usual tropes and the eye-rolling conclusion, “I saw it coming.”

          The thing is your generation has detached itself and takes no responsibility for the mess you’re generation helped to create, support and reinforce.

            There can be no doubt that the Boomer generation, of which I am a tail ender, has not only been the first over pampered, underworked bunch of sellouts the nation has ever seen, but has effected the 180 turn from “Question everything”, and “Don’t trust the government” to the detriment of our entire social structure. You have no idea how I worked and how I functioned in society and so your low information decision making clearly degrades your opinion.

            And Her Ladyship may have given me the old one-two right nicely, but she is full of it if she truly believes that I am full of myself. I, my dear, am full of shit, just like the rest of our species, including your ladyship.

            Thank you my Lady, and I mean that with all due respect. It is easy for people to make snap judgments here where so relatively few words are exchanged between posters, and that is too bad. Sometimes I know that I post too much in an effort to convey more about who I am, and I am going to risk it once again on one of the topics I am especially anticipating an “I told you so” moment eventually.

            As mayor I sit on the Solid Waste Advisory Council for my county. The woman who chairs it is a wonderful, dedicated and hard working person whose only fault is never being given enough of a budget to do what she is expected to accomplish. It seems as though this council’s most important duty is to deal with (as in dispose of) all of the various solid waste produced daily by our county (900,000 tons at day at the transfer station. Disposing of all of this garbage is a mammoth task and trying to find new and creative ways to deal with it is an exercise in frustration.

            My upbringing set me off in life as a “bring it in, bring it out”, “waste not want not”, kind of a guy. At the end of one of our meetings this year I spoke to the council and told them, “I don’t want to be a buzz kill people, but it seems to me that if we do not do something to cut back on our rampant consumption, we are going to drown ourselves in our own refuse”. Everyone was quite understanding and sympathetic, but very quickly it was noted that consumption is what drives our economy and cutting back is not something that we care to suggest to anyone anytime soon.

            If I live long enough, and it might not take long, I think I will be able to have quite the “I told you so” moment in this regard. Too bad, really.

          I have “spell check” built into WordPerfect on my Windows computer which highlights a problem word and offers a list of valid replacements. However, the “auto correct” feature of my Android tablet sometimes helps, but most of the time it is a total disaster.

            I turned the Android auto-correct off. Worthless. What kind of retarded programming ALWAYS replaces its (possessive “it”) with it’s (contraction “it is”).

            Whoever wrote this 1) isn’t aware “its” exists or 2) believes no one ever uses “its”. Can these people really be that ignorant, or is this some evil plot to further water down the language?

      Yup, and the reason being that with the advent of social media, and even before, American communities have been dying and the country with them.

      There is no real America any more, diversity and rotten politics have destroyed what little coherence existed in the first place. We are at the place where Balkanization may be the only situation. Hatred is raising its head more every year. The biggest impact of Covid is the increasing divide it is causing. I look at the issues of Arizona and compare them to the issues of the Atlantic coast. There is no comparison. California may be a crazy Liberal empire, but it’s problems resemble Arizona’s much more than the East.

      And folks, Dc and the Deep State are an East Coast institution along with all the do nothings that go there. A huge step to unify the country, if possible, would be to get the National Loser Society out of the East Coast and place it in Kansas City, stone by stone. What a great infrastructure project.

      • cowbell81 September 24, 2021 at 10:41 am #

        Better yet, just hope that the tsunami sweeps into the Atlantic coast and washes everything out to sea. Then we can start all over again and rebuild in a more central location.

        We should simply give all of the US lands back to the Native Americans and see if they have a better way of running things.

            The actual problem is we staved off wildfires to much so the amount of material to burn was far and away more than had we just let them go.

          About 800 years ago, my farm was controlled by some Algonquins who controlled the area for nearly a millennia.
          Them some Iroquois showed up. A nearby college did a little dig here. They found the last layer of Algonquin artifacts amid 30 skeletons. All of them showed signs of torture, and a few showed signs of having been GNAWED by human teeth.
          I think I’ll stick with the non-binding way, imperfect though it might be.
          Incidentely, I always wondered why Im supposed to feel guilty because my ancestors showed up a couple hundred years later and did the Iroquois the way they’d done the Algonquins. At least the patroons didn’t eat ’em!

      • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 11:16 am #

        Partition is definitely in America’s future, JohnAZ. A close study of history has convinced me beyond all doubt that demographically homogenous nation-states arose over time for natural reasons that are deeply rooted in fundamental human behavior.

        All of the diversity training in the world is not going to disabuse humans of these instincts, most of which evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to ensure our survival.

        Every multicultural empire inevitably breaks down and falls apart. It is almost always a messy process and violence is more the rule than it is the exception.

        This is why no rational person believes that “diversity is our strength.” That is pure horseshit and propaganda designed to attempt to sustain the unsustainable.

        At this point, the United States is thoroughly screwed. Teddy Kennedy killed it with the Immigration Reform Act (hahahaha) of 1965. The final nails are being driven into the coffin by Biden and his Open Borders stormtroopers.

        The only hope for Americans descended from the founding stock of this country is partition into smaller, more easily governed, and more demographically homogenous nation-states.

        It’s going to happen, whether anyone likes that particular future or not. Necessity and the need to survive will drive us the United States into a breakdown of the federal union.

        Our best hope right now is to try to achieve this with as little bloodshed as possible. I fear that the Left won’t allow that. They seem to WANT a CW2 and see it as a window of opportunity to overthrow the constitution and take the speed ramp route to their preferred United Socialist States of America.

        But, honestly, it would be better for all if we just held some sort of convention of the states and peacefully agreed to dissolve the present union and allow the 50 states to make their own new arrangements amongst themselves to form newer, smaller confederations. Some states, like Texas, Alaska, and Hawaii, might even decide that full independence standing alone suits them best.

        But the Blue Check crowd isn’t having any of it. They want to CONTROL us and to ABUSE us in my view. They are all about robbing us and getting revenge against us. (“Us” being anyone to the right of Bernie Sanders and AOC these days.)

          The US developed as an economic engine. The population center of the East Coast circa 1700s needed stuff to expand. The easiest way was expansion West. A really good example is the settlement of Texas. Spanish cattle, Longhorns populated vast areas of Texas and entrepreneurial Anglos appropriated them, made ranches, and drove the cattle north to the railroads to send beef East. Just one example. The logging industry is another.

          Today, with all thing manufactured being done offshore, what holds the various areas to America Central. Very little. The economic glue no longer exists.

          • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:39 pm #

            I agree with that. Our ancestors had a good run in that mad dash to conquer a continent and improve their lives. If I had a time machine I’d have rather lived between 1800 – 1860. So much opportunity.

            Two months ago I went looking for a new car for the first time since Numbskull Dubya was in the White House and his veep was shooting his fellow hunter in the face with bird shot. The salesmen told me to buy while I could because they dont expect new stock until November. I ended up buying not quite what I wanted because I lost an argum– I mean discussion with my wife, and partly because stock levels shriveled up. Since then, new car dealers are selling used cars, sometimes as old as 2010 models, for as much as I paid for a new 2021. Which is the long-winded way of saying, buy your presents early because expected deliveries of other, newer goods may never arrive.

Every soul so caught up in the mainstream narrative they just will give in? Scratch a little further and I suspect you have a generational grudge because “I told you so” is akin to “get off my lawn.”

      People don’t have to call attention to themselves to protest the status quo. In fact that is the smart approach at this point in time. The action to take is to disengage from all the systems as they are corrupt. Stop participating.

      • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 11:24 am #

        You are probably correct about China not invading and that all they want is to bring all Chinese areas under Chinese sovereignty.

        Sound familiar?

        Wasn’t this essentially supposed to be all Hitler really wanted when he kept demanding things like Alsace-Lorraine, the Sudetenland, and Danzig?

        For some unexplained reason, he decided Norway, France, the Channe Islands, Holland, Denmark, Belgium, Poland, Austria, Czchoslovakia Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, the Baltic States, Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria, etc., etc. all looked yummy too and should be either under the Reich’s thumb or in the Reich’s orbit.

        So, why would China not think similarly? They might decide that having Japan, South Korea, Indo-China, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, etc. all under their thumb is a peachy keen idea.

        Unbridled ambition knows no ethnic or national limitations. The Chinese are as capable of embracing imperial ambitions and any other country.

          • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:43 pm #

            This is a challenge for Chairman XI, not me. But his buildup of a blue water Navy and land to sea missile forces and his nuclear forces argues that he fully intends to take Taiwan back by force and it will probably happen before the middle of the century.

          Wizard, speaking as one who has lived in Southeast Asia (specifically, Indonesia) for 33+ years straight, I long ago concluded that the PRC is looking southward and seeing that the area is too rich (marine resources, minerals, arable land) and too underpopulated (Australia in particular) not to be worth assuming dominance over – and flooding with more Chinese (not that the ethnic variety already living in the region is that “Chinese” but it is the thin wedge).

          The orderly, iron-fisted People’s Republic of China can clearly see the ongoing confusion, weakness and economic recklessness of the west, and – in typical Chinese fashion – are prepared to wait it out. 30 years from now a map of East Asia will be nothing like it is today. And many of those residing in these countries are dimly aware of this – thus the steady urge to placate the Communists so they will give them more time before taking over.

          I recently read that there are more Han Chinese living in Tibet these days than Tibetans. And that barren mountain land has no resources to exploit.

          The Chinese also seem to be adept at propagation and reproduction, so essentially they will also eventually win on the human front.

          Protests means engagement which gives the power structure consent to exist. It means believing they have power or matter. It’s why protests are often presented as the only option. They reinforce the power of the state.

          Not consenting or participating in the presented narrative is our real power. The narrative is all the Controllers have and since they aren’t doing it very well lately its become quite easy to see how weak their control really is.

        To say that premodern China has very seldom invaded any other country since the 10th Century AD would be about right. China did briefly occupy Vietnam during the Ming Dynasty, and that’s about that. The conquests made or attempted by China during the Yuan and Qing Dynasties do not count, because during those two dynasties China was ruled by the Mongols and Manchus, not the Han Chinese themselves.

        There’s a China town in every major city in the world.

        Is it an invasion? Not particularly in a military sense, but like the Chinese Lantern Flies or stink bugs, they’re here to stay.

        The Chinese have an acute sense of history with long memories. They are extremely patient, goal oriented and have an uncanny knack for applying the ‘rope-a-dope’ strategy to global concerns.

        China is a place where diversity is non-existent, and that’s the way they like it. The Chinese never stop being Chinese ever, and to the Chinese, all the world is China. China first, and they are honest about it.

        What has brought America to it’s knees is the duplicitous nature of our political class in the conduct of their foreign policies. They’ve never been an honest broker in the world, and they’ve always had some kind of skim operation going.

        Human beings always get the government they deserve.

    One thing, those jobs of which there are not enough to go around: It seems that a lot of Americans just don’t want to work! That doesn’t mean that immigrants can do the jobs. I see everywhere signs of slowdowns and “Help wanted” signs. In shops and elsewhere.

    Maybe that is just local, but I have read about this also on ZeroHedge. That is “real” economic observers are saying the same. However they also mention people taking off a few (more) month to hone or acquire skills and look for a better job. So perhaps this is a different segment of the population that is failing to heed the call to get back to work.

    Of coure vax mandates might also be influencing the employment profile in ways the Labor Department doesn’t want to discuss.

    Regarding the number of those killed by covid vs the jab, and also the relative intelligence of the “hesitant” (better informed) at the FDA Advisory Vaccine Committee meeting on Sept. 17 there was some testimony that some kind soul pulled out in two relevant bits, here:

      That worker shortage phenomenon definitely has more to it than meets the eye.

      Walmart never shut down, so the shortage they claim to be experiencing can’t be a result of workers preferring to stay on unemployment.

      I’ve been hearing anecdotal evidence that people are quitting due to having their hours cut and being expected to do the work formerly done by three.

      The emergency UE benefits are already suspended, and regular UE won’t last much longer (is it six or seven months before they kick you off in “normal” times?). It seemed like it would last forever in the spring, everyone just presumed they’d re-up them, cuz covid. Nope. So people will have to go back to work very soon, one way or another.

    Someone in my family works in a business affiliated with a national chain.

    They are still waiting for word to come down as to whether they should try to force shots on their employees, but most of them seem to have gotten the shots over the summer.

    One of the vaccinated has just come down with the COVID.

    It’s starting.

    • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 11:31 am #

      I have long felt that all of this “vaccine mandate” bloviating from Biden is pure blarney – a huge bluff – designed to panic people into getting jabbed out of a false sense of resignation that it is futile to resist the Woke BORG bastards.

      In reality, the only people Biden has even a possible shred of authority to push around with his “mandates” are the military and other federal employees. He’s on much thinner ice with private employers, which is why he keeps mainly relying on Wokester corporate management to threaten folks with losing their jobs if they don’t get jabbed.

      I think the whole vaccine mandate thing will ultimately fizzle out as the unjabbed litigate and riot and take other measures to resist and push back.

      But by then the Biden folks will have achieved their objective which was to get about 75% of the country to possibly commit slow suicide by getting the gene therapy crap shot into their veins.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder September 24, 2021 at 12:04 pm #

        I hope you’re right, Wizard.

        But I still don’t discount the idea of a National Guard truck outside my door within a year or two, including a doc or nurse wearing a lab coat and wielding a needle.

        “We’re here to take away your child, unless you get vaccinated right now. You know, for everyone’s safety.”

        If the majority of people continue to let this slide, there’s no reason it won’t get there fast.

        • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:46 pm #

          Mango – I certainly get your concern. It’s not impossible. Hell, I used to think the things we watched happen in this country in 2020 were impossible. I’ve since revised my concept of what’s possible and impossible.

          Anything is possible for a regime that is willing to be completely lawless and to use force to have its way.

          For this reason, you are right to remain wary.

      • Night Owl September 24, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

        That 75-80% figure has more to do with the coming SSI digital ID passes.

        I posted a link a while back from Thales, a contractor who I know for a fact is working with/has a contract with the German government (and potentially others) on said IDs.

        They need 80% uptake by 2030 according to their own materials. It is also possible that they have accellerated the timeline.

        All of this is about the passes, as they will be linked to banking, shopping, health data/care, etc. It is the ultimate form of control and the primary aim behind everything we are experiencing.

        • VeryVer September 24, 2021 at 12:26 pm #

          But what is the point of these passes?

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder September 24, 2021 at 1:01 pm #

            Why, protection, of course.

          • Night Owl September 24, 2021 at 2:00 pm #

            They are creating a global digital control grid. Why not go inform yourself? Look up World Economic Forum Self Sovereign Identity pass.

            If they get their way, you will need the pass to enter a store, conduct banking transactions, travel on a train, etc. Without the pass you are cut out of society. Everything you do that can be recorded digitally will be part of your “digital wallet.”

            The “vaxx pass” is the precursor. They are using the so-called pandemic to herd people into the system, as no one would ever volunteer to be governed under such a system otherwise.

            Go to the Thales website and have a look. This is a takeover. That is what the Great Reset/New Normal is. They are changing society and making you a serf unless you agree to let them control everything you do and jab yourself multiple times a year with gene-altering frankenshots.

            Even better, go read “Covid-19 and the Great Reset.”

          I’m hoping the manufacturers are secretly “improving” the vaccines so that by the time I’m forced to have it, it will be less likely to kill me. Of course, this assumes that “not killing people” is actually a goal here.

          • SW September 24, 2021 at 3:03 pm #

            @ Nightowl

            I wouldn’t be surprised if the only proof of vaccination that would be accepted was one on your cell phone, issued by a public health department. That would eliminate fake ones and force compliance. It’s a surveillance takeover and the purpose of all surveillance is control like in a panopticon where just a few monitor many. And the many never know when they’re being watched so they must meet the rules (no matter how arbitrary or illogical) or face punishment.

          • Night Owl September 27, 2021 at 4:31 am #

            Yeah, SW. That is exactly what the plan is. That is how the WEF SSI pass will work, except that it is tied to everything you do in the digital world.

        • Islander September 25, 2021 at 9:48 am #

          NO, Of course you are right.

          They are already “going there” in Canada.

          Ready to institute CBDC. I think the disgunstingly oleaginous Justin Trudeau has also even stated that they are going to to the Great Reset by 2030.

          Your tip on the page of WEF “Young Leaders” was a good one. These plants are all over the place. Some years ago someone did some research (and published it) that revealed just how many EU representatives I think to the EUropean Parliament had been funded in various ways by Soros. We need the same thing for Schwab/WEF. I am not very good on creating databases, but I might have a go at at least creating a list.

          The real nut of such info, though, would be to map each “young leader’s” connections to other orgs and people. One of those network maps. I checked out one of the Indian Young Leaders and he is head of something that is big in microfinancing women in India. I have read that microfinancing schemes are very lucrative for the investors.

          IOW they are making money off these village women working their butts off to make a little money for their families. I am not against the idea of charging a little interest, but this interest should go back into the fund, for loans to more people. Not into a profit stream!!! Anyhow, I guess I am digressing big-time. However, this is all part of getting people hooked into digital networks of various kinds.

          • Night Owl September 27, 2021 at 4:32 am #

            Well, the aim of the WEF is to “capture democractic institutions.” The quote is from Schwab himself and is even found on his Wikipedia bio.

            Night Owl – France and Italy, and unfortunately your homeland, included in Western European countries in my comments below.

        • Ron Anselmo September 25, 2021 at 12:46 am #

          Yes, but only a partial test – to see how long until they back down – which they will. They’ve both long since been disarmed we’ve seen this movie before vis-a-vis Hong Kong – after enough beatings from their own governments – they will back down, just a matter of time. How much time? The test will tell.

          Both are unique, in that both have strict immigration control, so they are not being taken over from without by hordes of illegal immigrants like the lost Western European countries, but taken over entirely from within by their own authoritarian rulers.

          The Western European countries, all also similarly disarmed, and were lost to a combination uncontrolled immigration and authoritarian rulers – taken over from within and without.

          This same hybrid approach is being used today in the US – uncontrolled immigration and authoritarianism lite (so far). The distinct difference is that we are the last armed country in the world.

          How to repel these dual threats to the US? Armed citizens may have to stop immigration at our Southern Border and armed citizens may have to stop authoritarianism in the streets.

          I’ll let everyone figure out what the common denominator is in these two responses to the dual threats – threats from within and without.

          Oz, NZ & the Western European countries have balls without guns. The US (so far) has guns without balls. If we have guns without balls – guns might as well be used for paperweights.

          • GreenAlba September 25, 2021 at 5:50 am #

            Ron: I thought ‘backing down’ in Jarek’s post referred to the authorities in Oz and NZ (as the UK government has backed down a couple of times over vaxx passes).

            In Italy, it seems the majority of the people are all for the restrictions, as I read in this entirely mainstream article in The Spectator (mainstream but with a libertarian flavour):

            https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-curious-lack-of-opposition-to-italy-s-covid-il-green-pass-?

            I don’t how it will work out in the UK, but since the previous ‘Vaccines Minister’ (yes, really) promised no vaxx passes, then proposed vaxx passes, the direction of travel is definitely away from the British tradition of not being obliged to carry identity documents. They would need to do it very gradually, as I can’t imagine most Brits being happy with a situation where people can’t buy food without a pass.

          • GreenAlba September 25, 2021 at 7:01 am #

            I should have mentioned that the constituent parts of the UK have their own devolved arrangements for health and therefore passes. Scotland is in the unfortunate position of being probably permanently under the thumb of the SNP, who have always, in my view, had dictatorial tendencies. And so there are to be passes, to get into large events (for now, obviously).

            Scottish nationalists (the voters, in this instance) seem to me so enamoured of their emotional aspirations regarding political independence that the Dictator-in-Chief benefits from a kind of halo effect, in that people think her other policies, in this case draconian, must also come from a place of equally warm fuzziness. And so people go along with them.

          • Pete September 25, 2021 at 8:38 am #

            I think what you mistake for ‘no balls’ is an overwhelming reluctance to ‘go first.’

            That magic moment dangles before all of us. Our final bold move really, our last great act of defiance. Actually, this reluctance to get started on that project speaks to our patience, our faith in how discourse between reasonable people can settle disputes. Even after all that has transpired over these past six years, we are still patient, but I sense our patience too is wearing thin.

            I don’t know when that magic moment occurs. It won’t be the loss of my job, which is pending. It may come a couple of days after being locked out of the supermarket. IDK. Certainly when the sense of having nothing left to lose sets in, and before I grow dizzy with hunger.

            I don’t know when the magic moment will be here, but I sense it is heading this way… There won’t be a dry eye in the house when it arrives.

          • Grandpa September 25, 2021 at 8:34 pm #

            Ron, there are more than a few in this country with both firearms and balls. One of the primary obstacles to employment of said firearms by.the aforementioned guys with balls (and, from experience, there are more than a few courageous ladies in this country as well, ‘balls’ being understood here in the ‘yep, I suppose’ context) is called ‘responsibility’. All this has been written about, ad nauseum. There will be a time, I feel certain, in the not too far off future, that mom will roll her eyes; dad will set the paper down and say “ok, I’ve had enough of this shit”, and go to the room where dad keeps certain things that he doesn’t speak of, the kids aren’t allowed to know about – and this is why mom rolled her eyes… she knows we’re going there.

      China has been buying gold hand over fist for some time now (probably with our worthless bonds). They’ve encouraged their people to hold gold. They also have three big, deep, mines they’ve set their Uyghur slaves to working, and they don’t report what they’re taking out of the ground. My guess is they are sitting on a mountain of the barbarous relic. Do you suppose they could force a reprice? And by how much before we nuke them? 50%, 100, 200?

      • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 11:41 am #

        Indeed, how would anyone outside of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee members and a few trusted minions who guard the gold reserves have any clue as to how much gold the government of China is truly sitting on?

        Hell, folks in this country are not entirely sure how much gold remains in Fort Knox these days. That is an ongoing controversy, despite government denials to the contrary.

        What entity from outside of China audits the gold owned by China? None, is the likely answer.

        So, they could be building huge stockpiles in preparation for a move to depose the USD as the world’s reserve currency and to replace it with a gold-backed Chinese Yuan. This would be a very swift kick in the nuts to Uncle Sam and our domestic elites.

        We’d be castrated, like the British Pound Sterling was when the Bretton Woods conference was over and the USD was enthroned as the new post-WW2 global currency standard.

        Of course, this country laid the groundwork for this coming disaster once Nixon closed the gold window on 8/15/1971. The dollar has been in a more or less 50 year long free fall in value since then. Time is growing short for the global U.S. financial hegemony.

    I was reading an article from a magazine about a family who were mostly vaccinated, but nonetheless got sick with COVID and spread it around, despite bizarre behavior such as wearing N-95 masks.

    What struck me in the article was that the writer was obviously intelligent and educated, but his story read just like that- a story.

    It sounded like a child who reaches the age where they no longer believe in Santa Claus, but they want to believe so bad that they start telling themselves tales about how Santa manages to do such impossible things.

    I’m not looking to get into a pissing match on covid vaccination, nor am I even remotely expert in real or potential side effects, but I do understand numbers.

    Vermont has a covid death rate per 100,000 of 48. Mississippi is at 316 and rising.

    Vermont’s vaccination rate (at least one dose) has passed 87% while Mississippi is at 46%.

    Granted, our Governor (a Republican if it matters to anyone) did a better job than most Governors, despite his doing some of the same nonsensical “essential vs non-essential” crap done in most States, but it hard to ignore the correlation between a Vermont’s high vaccination rate/low death rate as compared to Mississippi’s low vaccination rate/high death rate.

        • Islander September 25, 2021 at 10:00 am #

          Not to mention the availability of early treatment.

          All of these data need to be far more nuanced than they are—with far more data points—in order for us to understand the actual dangers of covid vs. the dangers of the jabs.

          Naturally we will not really know the latter for years to come.

        Obesity being a big problem. Lots of fat black people eating fried foods and BBQ in Mississippi. Lots of healthy outdoorsy, white folks in Vermont. Heart disease rates probably far higher in Mississippi. This is an apples and oranges situation. COVID alone is unlikely to explain the divergence in hospital death rates.

      • thirdcoastlegend September 24, 2021 at 12:00 pm #

        Don’t forget they fiddle with the PCR process of brewing up gene gunk depending on jab status.

      • VeryVer September 24, 2021 at 12:40 pm #

        Yeah, I’m in Vermont, too. So many things are different between Vt and Miss it’s hard to make a comparison. Vermont was doing “great” long before vaccines, despite being next to NY and MA. It’s a bit of puzzle, really. But Vermont is really different, everything is diffenet, even from neighboring states. For example, it’s pretty much impossible to eat “fast food” here — you might find a McDonald’s if you look hard enough. There are apparently 29 in the state, but I can only think of maybe five. There are pretty much NO large events here, or high-capacity venues, or even large employers. Low population density. People are loners, too. And lots of farmers who generally have great immune systems. Lots of well water, for good or bad. Lots of “organic food” etc. Not a lot of chemicals sprayed all over the place. It’s just endless. But obesity is really obvious one.

      • Chippenhook September 24, 2021 at 5:11 pm #

        Black people are something like 1% of Vermont’s population but we are at or near being the oldest average age population in the country. Lots of old folks here, not so many children or young adults anymore.

        Exactly. Compare this:

        “About 78% of people who have been hospitalized, needed a ventilator or died from Covid-19 have been overweight or obese, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a new study Monday.”

        With this:

        Vermont % of population who are obese: 27
        Mississippi % of population who are obese: 39.1

        If you add in the overweight category, an astounding 71% of Mississippi’s population qualifies (although to be fair Vermont is no great shakes at 55%).

        In contrast to the Cadaver-in-Chief’s pronouncement that this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated”, a more accurate assessment is that it is a pandemic of the lard-asses.

            ===========

            ^This^ is an excellent example of poor sentence structure.

            Let me get this straight, Mango, are you saying that your mom, for some very good reason, felt that one should not begin eating until they felt themselves full? That’s kind of counter-intuitive isn’t it? I’m sure that is not what you intended to say.

            Don’t forget, black people are very often deficient in vitamin D. They evolved in the tropics, where there’s no shortage of sunshine. No problem. Here in the temperate zone, less sunshine, big problem. There’s an easy fix, of course, but most don’t take advantage of it. Far more blacks in Mississippi than in Vermont.

      How were the stats determined. What was the test used to determine if they had “Covid” and whether “Covid” actually killed anyone.

      The PCR test does not work for diagnosis, and that means that the stats are bogus. That is a verifiable fact, and the CDC itself recently said the same after defrauding the public for over a year.

        Exactly, Mary. It isn’t for nothing that Mississippi has long been known for being dead-last in just about every category that matters in this world for as long as anyone can remember.

        The last time Mississippi was on-top was 1860, when Mississippi was the wealthiest per capita state in the union. It wasn’t for nothing that Jeff Davis, a Mississippian, was president of the Confederacy.

        But the war ended all of that and poor old Mississippi has never recovered from the war and Reconstruction. It is the Hait of America. A permanently failed state.

      With 82% of the population fully vaccinated against the virus, the country has had one of the longest on-going mask mandates in the world.”

          After a year and a half’s investment creating the image of the “Gold Standard” for COVID testing and fine tuning the “case” surges to fit the FEAR campaign,you expect the CDC and it’s owners to just cast aside all the good work? What are they to replace it with that begins to fit their needs as well? It’s been over a month since the CDC’s Friday evening mea-culpa. How many Americans actually know what happens when the Tech puts their brain swab into a tube and ships it off to the lab for analysis?

          “The Science” is whatever you can convince people to believe. Or just create a blank space between their ears where the capacity for logic and deduction might have once resided.

          Without the PCR fraud that enables a COVID case to be declared if a single molecule out of ten trillion can be found that might possibly be a nano-particle fragment of some form of virus contacted at some time in the past the entire pandemic might never have been marketable. Nobody knows—make that NOBODY —if the millions of positive PCR test results around the world signify a massive pandemic or a massive misuse of a scientific procedure that is physically incapable of identifying a live virus.

        Have you noticed that now “unvaccinated” means the same thing as “infected”?

        For example, two year old babies can’t be vaccinated yet, so they must be made to keep their breath from infecting others, as if vaccination cleanses them from the contagion they carry.

          I have several friends that now have this viewpoint, though they generally try to mask it by claiming that they’re not worried for themselves (as they’ve been vaccinated), but that they really just “care about my safety”. They wouldn’t want “us” to get sick, you see.

          That said, one of them sheepishly will not allow us in his home anymore, thanks to pressure from his PhD (in psychology, mind you) wife, who supposedly “loves us”. Welp, so much for that yearly roadtrip/visit. Apparently our similar-aged children will not know each other growing up now.

      These numbers mean nothing. Or at least, not what you think.

      The epicenter of the virus was NYC. That’s because NYC is a massive travel hub, with millions of people from high-infection regions hitting New Yawk airports within weeks of the “first bloom”.

      Then, the virus radiated from NYC like spokes.

      Vermont, with its close proximity both geographically and cultural to NYC, peaked early.

      Mississippi is not a travel hub and has a relatively low rate of human exchange with the epicenter in the Northeast.
      Therefore, Mississippi is where NYC (and Vermont) were 8 or 10 months ago.
      It’s got eff-all to do with DaVax, and everything to do with prior infection rates.

      Don’t swallow prepackaged narratives. Do the math yourself.

          “Cases” = lies because PCR tests can’t detect infection
          “Variants” = vaccine injury
          Hospital deaths from ‘covid19’ = mostly untreated respiratory infections, or illness caused by Remdesivir. Doctors refused to treat early stage ‘infections’ so they got out of control.
          Deaths from covid19 = people who died with a positive test, from comorbidities, and again, tests are garbage & don’t detect anything.

          Every single thing we’ve been told by our ‘leaders’ and the MSM is a lie. All lies can be traced back to the fact this virus has never been proven to exist.

            What are the PCR tests calling positive?

            Variants, a result of natural selection in the face of an adverse environment with vaccines. Evolution faster than our countermeasures, vaccines are too slow, we need cures.

            John, I would say the oodles of corona viruses we deal with each year; the uptick comes from shot-induced immune system deficiency as more people inject more spike proteins into their bodies.

            You never did answer how flu disappeared from the statistics during the so-called pandemic. Do you not find that odd? It’s unheard of.

            Anything and everything is labeled Corona, and this is enabled by turning up the PCR cycle rate. Since the PCR does not actually provide any information on sickness with “covid,” they can run the stats however they want within certain limits (people actually admitted to the hospital, for example).

            The plan is rather brilliant when combined with the fact that the criminals have nearly full control of the requisite health bodies as well as the McMedia. They control WHO; Hopkins; GAVI; CDC; NIH; NIAD, and, over here, the RKI and Bundesgesundheitsministerium. Lockstep

            OK, so Fausti, et al, are on the hook for funding GOF. Wuhan lab created the chimeric corona virus by adding a much more effective furin cleavage mechanism for the toxic spike protein. That chimera escaped the lab, one way or another, and quickly spread around the world, merrily mutating as it flew. The virus chimera and its offspring have not been “isolated” in the sense of their physical whole structure. But it’s now elementary to accurately reveal the genetic structure of all of them, and that’s been done. That’s how they know it’s an engineered virus, and also how they know why it’s so dangerous. The spike protein is the toxin, and the engineered furin cleavage mechanism is what makes it vastly more efficient infecting human cells. It opens the door to our cells, easy as pie. It’s mostly useless against our first line of defense — nasal and sinus mucosal tissue. But, get a big enough inoculum, and it can quickly get much further into our lower respiratory system, where it can begin to overwhelm our immune response, especially in the old and infirm.

            That’s my understanding of the process. Correct me if I’m wrong, please.

            The so-called vaccines are making things far worse by introducing only the toxic spike protein for our immune systems to respond to. The “vaccines” are non-sterilizing, do not kill the virus, thus paving the way for more effective mutants to arise, not to mention flooding the jabbed with those toxic spike proteins in the first place.

            So, there’s plenty of evil to go around and get around!

            Don’t accept the evil jabs, but don’t keep saying there’s no virus! The virus itself is not a hoax. It’s real and real different, cuz evil humans like Fausti and Barick. The responses to it? Giant hoax, for sure.

          If the virus does not exist, neither do the spike proteins, if we cannot isolate the virus, same with the proteins.

          So where are the things in the vaccines coming from that are damaging folks if there are no spike proteins.

          How did they get a footprint for the spike protein in the vaccine without a model to base it on?

          Unanswered questions!

          A really dark possibility is that the substance manufactured by the mRNA is really a genetic “poison” generated by the PTB to cull out weak sisters in the populist.

            The spike proteins exist in all corona viruses; they give the corona family its name.

            The vaccines were manufactured. MRNA technology is independent of the spike protein. The tech. programs cells to produce whatever the maker has designed it to program; in this case, it programs cells to produce spikes.

            “The spike proteins exist in all corona viruses; they give the corona family its name.”

            The problem, if I understand it correctly, is that the jabs deliver the spikes directly into our blood stream and hence into every organ of the body. IOW bypassing our natural defenses against them in our respiratory tracts.

            Thus, the jabs are a dream come true for the spikes!! They are like opening a backdoor to the body’s whole physiology instead of making the spikes run the gauntlet of the natural defense in our mucous membranes of the nose and throat.

            Here is a pretty good paper–not sure whether it has been approved for publication or not, but it lays out a lot of the problems with the jabs with the proper scientific citations:

      Your numbers look good on the surface.

      I imagined a bigger story a couple decades ago. How to off the bulk of humanity and preserve the industrial infrastructure? The only feasible method would be an engineered pathogen. It seems that turned out to be too difficult. Apparently, we’re at Plan B: scare ’em with a pathogen and convince most to volunteer for lethal injections and follow up with forced lethal injections.

      The limits of exponential financial growth, I would offer, are much more impressive numbers than published covy stats.

      Were Mississippi’s “covid deaths” really covid deaths? Throughout this whole fiasco, hospitals have notorious labelled pretty much all deaths from all causes as covid deaths–and getting paid a tidy sum ($13,000) for each “covid” patient, and $40,000 if they put them on a vent.

      The first “covid death” in my county was a guy in hospice care.

      If you want to cook your books, all you have to do is ramp up the cycles on the PCR test and diagnose everyone with covid, and ring the register. Everyone who dies is a “covid death.”

      If you want to cook your books to show few covid deaths, you dial down the number of cycles on the PCR test, and diagnose almost no one with covid.
      ,

    • jeff2002 September 24, 2021 at 12:59 pm #

      I’m in Vermont, too. Lots of applause for our amazing “response” to Covid, but the correlation you mention is one of many that don’t necessarily carry much weight. For one thing, 80% of Covid deaths are in the obese, and Mississippi is one of the most obese states in the country. Vermont has done well (so far) for very mundane reasons: We’re a tiny state with not a whole lot of people but lots of fresh air.

      As for the “so far” part: The health department reported 1,500 cases last week, against 25 the same week last year in a completely unvaxxed population. It fits the trend of the most-vaxxed states and countries seeing massive case spikes. Chances are that Vermont’s blue-ribbon status is going to boomerang big-time once flu season hits–and vaccine-induced ADE along with it.

      • Mountain gal September 25, 2021 at 6:05 am #

        Same here Jeff. Comparing the two states is really not a fair measure of the success or not of the vax due to the immense differences in the population and lifestyle. VT tends to be in the top in any study of population health while MS ranks at the bottom in pretty much all measures(other than obesity!). With Covid taking a greater toll on blacks for a number of reasons, some possibly unclear, it’s not a mystery that MS is doing far worse than VT.

        While the folks here in VT would like to attribute our relative success with Covid thus far to our vax numbers and religious adherence to masks and social distancing, I’d say it’s not quite the actual truth. And as you note, our Covid numbers are high as are our hospitalizations, as compared to last year when we were totally unvaxed. But of course they are blaming the unvaxed for all of it and trying to force any holdouts to get vaxed.

        I’d guess that some of our low numbers, besides low obesity levels relatively speaking, is also due to the rural nature of the state and how pretty much most things just aren’t happening anymore with the exception of some outdoor events.

        I can tell you that I personally have not been welcome in anyone’s home for over a year, other than an unvaxed family member and acquaintance. I am shunned by most of the vaxed and treated as a leper. Most events I see advertised are requiring proof of vaccination. The fear level is so high that I saw quite a number of masked people outdoors in Montpelier when I was there last week. I even saw a guy raking the leaves in his yard wearing a mask!

        Covid has brought out an ugliness that I didn’t realize existed here; am definitely looking to relocate when I can.

          I guess Vermont is beautiful, but incredibly self-righteous.

    You have Life?  Good.  Then Life has you as well  All of you! Every organ, every drop of blood and, of course, your brain: your mind. But I have free will!, you say. Of course you do. Sort of.

    Now Life is normally quite placid. Even though Life lives on by consuming itself; the feasting is benign, as it is with all Life’s wards; with one notable exception. You.  And the rest of the human race. We are Life consuming gluttons extraordinaire. Think Gettysburg, Dachau, Hiroshima and …factory farming: ad nauseam.This is not new, of course. Our behavior is old news. Life has cut slack to humans because we have a uniqueness that has warranted observation over time. Time may have just run out.

     Humans now have the ability to destroy the biosphere. Our pernicious conduct may have convinced Life that without its prompt.interjection; it is inevitable.Enter Mr.Covid 19. Force Majeure of modern plagues. Sponsor of the blame game to end all blame games. Seven billion people have an opinion…and an asshole. The ones who have a microphone or a computer demonstrate both, daily. Think Life has a hand in all this? Maybe the plague is a worldwide distraction to give the Biosphere a little breathing room to heal from ongoing human assault? Hmmm.

    Millions are dead. Millions are becoming infected every day. The virus twists and turns and presents a new face constantly. We rush to keep up but seemingly always lag behind. How so? Is it out of our hands?

    • Pete September 24, 2021 at 10:24 am #

      You’re essentially making the Algae Bloom argument, and in many respects I agree.

      It should be plain to see, however, that those who believe themselves to be more (prescient, knowledgeable, smarter, better, or elite), than the rest of us seem to want to help mother nature along.

      That’s the problem, and that is well within our power to change.

    • AngryFarmer September 24, 2021 at 12:00 pm #

      “Life” doesn’t have a “hand in things” because it’s just a vague definition to distinguish one category of matter from another.

      Likewise, biospheres don’t “heal” because they aren’t organisms. It is again a vague definition that means, loosely, “all the stuff that happens to be alive right now”.

      And why should this mythical healing process benefit, say, barn swallows and raccoons when it so spectacularly failed mastodons and velociraptors?

      That’s because there’s no such thing. Only a mindless collection of forces and conditions to which a species either adapts, or succumbs.

      Which brings us to Covid. It’s not some desperate defense from mama Gaia.
      It comes to us courtesy of the CCP, with a bit of financing provided by Fauci’s CDC.

      You might as well sell Huitzipotchli or Odin as the source. Heck, that’d be good news!
      Sacrifice a Virginia or two, and it’s all fixed.

      “Maybe the plague is a worldwide distraction to give the Biosphere a little breathing room to heal from ongoing human assault?”

      You seem to be imagining the biosphere as an intelligent, quasi-human entity (perhaps a god or goddess) who plans and makes decisions, perhaps with the aid of the great spreadsheet in the sky. Other people think that the Great Tribulation is upon us and the Hand of Judgement is being restrained by the gentle hand of Mary and the prayers of the faithful, to allow time for repentance. Some others think that we approach the end of the Kali Yuga.

      You have chosen your religion; you could just as well have chosen another. Maybe somebody is right. Maybe not.

      The plain and objectively observable facts are that nature has its own laws, which for practical purposes are pretty well known. Animal populations of all species experience population overshoots and die-offs. Plant populations thrive and are followed by replacement species.

      It is believed that, between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago the human population was reduced to only 1,200 (the population bottleneck).

      There have subsequently been innumerable plagues, floods, famines, wars, Ice Ages, polar excursions, volcanic eruptions, and so forth. Maybe this was because the biosphere just gets mad every now and then. Or maybe not.

      Your explanation is fanciful–a fanciful as the idea that throwing a virgin in a volcano is a good way to appease the volcano god.

        What makes the ‘facts’ you speak of, ‘plain and objectively observable’?

    • Chippenhook September 24, 2021 at 5:27 pm #

      In the scheme of things this is a very mild pandemic. World population was higher at the end of last year than at the beginning and it will again be higher at the end of this year than at the beginning. Covid-19isn’t even making a dent.

      • Mountain gal September 25, 2021 at 6:12 am #

        Covid might not be denting the population to any great degree but the vaxes may well do so in the countries where they have been heavily used.

      It fascinates me how some here have to comment on Robert’s thoughts on the Biosphere by equating it with (supposedly) primitive superstitions and the like. The question I want to ask here is why. Robert wasn’t trying to proselytize. He used the word ‘maybe’ when presenting his thoughts on the Biosphere.

      The Western world’s relationship with religion seems always to have been a very troubled one throughout history, swinging from one extreme to the other. Fanatical proselytism and persecution of unbelievers on the one hand, on the other a complete denial of all meaning and purpose which seeks, with the same degree of fanaticism, to reduce everything to the blind workings of dumb, brute matter.

      It needs to be asked (I think) if this utterly nihilistic view of things might not be precisely the root cause of the whole sorry sorry state of affairs to which Western ‘civilization’ has now led us all. Certainly Solzhenitsyn thought so. (I’m NOT defending fanatical proselytism and the persecution of unbelievers, by the way; they’re just as rotten, though in a different way.)

    Another excellent offering today, James, thank you!

    “Chiefly, the vaccine is not a vaccine and it will probably end up killing more people than the Covid-19 disease and its variants. A lot of those deaths will be caused in the months ahead by damage to people’s hearts and other organs from spike proteins generated via mRNA shots.”

    Yes, the carnage is just starting to be exposed. It’s way worse than even I thought it was. The past 2 days I’ve seen so much come to light that it’s very difficult to deal with. Parents realizing they’re ruined their child’s health, because they didn’t bother to research what was going on. Hell, can’t even blame them, they were misinformed and lied to, and told the ‘vaccine’ was ‘safe’. It certainly is not. And of course the deaths.

    I think we will see more and more whistleblowers from inside ‘healthcare’ as more of them lose their jobs for refusing the jab.

    “THESE PATIENTS DESERVE TO BE HEARD” -VAERS WHISTLEBLOWER

    “In a Highwire exclusive, Deborah Conrad, a hospitalist physician’s assistant on the frontlines of the pandemic, pulls back the curtain on the complete lack and disregard in her hospital for reporting Covid vaccine injury to VAERS, this country’s only mechanism to track the safety of these rushed-to-market, mandated products. In riveting detail, including emails & recorded phone conversations, Conrad exposes the internal push to turn a blind eye to injuries and “tow the company line” that this vaccine is safe.”

        That is extremely short-sighted of you and especially so when one considers the mounting evidence that the spike proteins are constantly causing cumulative damage and that we are still in the early months of the Biggest medical experiment in mankind’s history.

          I’m not being naive. I am merely pointing out that there is much we don’t know about these shots.

          It was conjecture that these vaccines might keep you out of the hospital.

          It’s also conjecture that they could cause harm down the line, if they haven’t already.

          Why should anyone who has taken the shots and can’t undo that now worry over something that only “could” happen?

            When ever someone starts on the horse paste theme I invite them to take a horse appropriate dosage of Pfizer. For most that means two shots for each arm and two for each butt cheek. It hasn’t yet been tested at large scale, but indications are that more than five x injections will be fatal. Are you willing to volunteer to test it? Didn’t think so!

            ps (Nothing personal Beryl!)

            So are you ready to line up for #6 of your bi-annual booster* as your “vaccine” droops below 37% efficacy after less than six months as is happening in Israel? At least the Israeli’s are likely to test how many boosters are need to reach the Red Line because they have such a head start *4) on the rest of us.

      I keep hoping the vaccines don’t turn out to shorten the lifespans of millions of Americans either. My mother, sister, and brother in law all recently succumbed to the fear porn about the Delta Variant (!!!) and got jabbed. My sister is now double-jabbed. So far, they’ve tolerated it well, but my sister said it was a rough few days after the first jab. So, no, I don’t want to be proven right and lose family members.

      But, sadly, everything I read leaves me to believe that this won’t end well for many of the vaccinated. It might take 5 or 10 years before we have any true sense of how the greatest vaccine trial in all human history actually turned out.

      I just don’t want to be one of the hapless guinea pigs.

    • Islander September 25, 2021 at 12:33 pm #

      Teddy:

      Many people have no adverse reactions.

      And the jab may well have prevented you from catching the coof! There is simply no way to prove a negative unless genuine random-control trials are run. And even then there is no way to prove a negative for a specific person. So, look on the bright side. You haven’t caught, right?

      But please don’t take any more shots!! There are effective treatmants if you should get it. Here is a paper featured at Market Ticker

      And do start with supplements to boost your immune system:

      Vitamins D and C, 50 mgs zinc + quercetin.

      Here is a protocol (from the Market-Ticker) that was published in January 2021 but no one noticed:

      1. Early start of treatment, regardless of the severity of patient symptoms.
      – Antihistamines every 12 h: dexchlorpheniramine 2 mg, cetirizine 10 mg or loratadine 10 mg.

      2. Patients with mild or recent-onset symptoms (cough, fever, general malaise, anosmia, polymyalgia):
      – Azithromycin 500 mg orally every 24 h for 3 days if there is rapid improvement, and for 6 days if the duration of symptoms is prolonged.
      – If pain or fever, acetaminophen 650 mg/6–8 h.
      – Nasal washing and gargling with sodium bicarbonate water (half a glass of warm water with half a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate).
      3. If symptoms of severity (dyspnea, breathing difficulty, mild or moderate chest pain, with SpO2 100 beats per minute at any time of the process):
      – Antihistamines + Azithromycin (see mild treatment management)
      – Levofloxacin 500 mg/12 h, up to 14 days of antibiotic treatment from diagnosis.
      – Mepifilin solution, 50 mg/8 h as a bronchodilator, until subjective improvement. Patients with previous lung disease (asthma or COPD) used their usual bronchodilators.
      – If the patient experienced increased breathing difficulty, prednisone 1 mg/kg/day divided into two doses until clinical improvement, and then it was slowly tapered down.

      4. Prophylactic treatment for close contacts, including all asymptomatic residents:
      – Antihistamines at the same dose as symptomatic patients.

    Yup, and it is just starting.

    Covid has no solution, it eventually will burn through the population in spite of vaccines, masks etc. it is ubiquitous, it it waiting for us inside everywhere. The vaxx boys have again pushed their agenda to beat down the fixit boys as no remedial situation exists for any virus disease.
    Covid has finished off a few more folks, invaded more organs and created long term effects that aspirin cannot fix. That is what separates it from say the flu. That is what has allowed the Left to raise the fear factor to enhance their control.

    When HIV hit in the 80s, it caused a total restructure of the medical hardware. It was blood borne. It scared the hell out of nursing as most procedures were done by them. As data accumulated, and remedies happened, the fear factor declined. The procedures stayed conservative though and a real respect for needle sticks still pervades the industry.

    What is it going to take to emphasize the battle against viruses? Not vaccines, cures. Covid viruses with the killing power of HIV or Ebola?

    Hope not, or the mass reduction of humans that Hollywood presents periodically may just happen.

      I know a woman who was in an Ebola outbreak. We stayed in touch through the internet during the outbreak. They shut her health screening clinic because of Ebola so she had some time to do video chats. The Africans were doing things to stop the outbreak but it didn’t seem like they were going hysterical about it. She didn’t get locked down she just volunteered at a school. I wonder if the US had an outbreak of a disease with an Ebola like survival rate how could CNN dial up the hysteria proportionaly to what they did for COVID, a disease with a 99% survival rate?

      • AngryFarmer September 24, 2021 at 12:27 pm #

        Ebola could never be a civilization-ender. It knocks you down too quickly. You’re exposed. 12 hours later you’re bedridden. Twelve hours after that, you’re dead.
        There’s no time for you to stagger around and spread it to people.
        That’s why the Ebola pattern is so recurrent. It wipes out an entire town, as family members and caregivers get sick, but it rarely manages to spread to next town.

        The big killers – typhus, malaria, bubonic plague – all needed an arthropod to rack up their high death tolls.

      • MaryQueen September 24, 2021 at 12:32 pm #

        I find it a little too weird/convenient that Ebola — which was supposed to be super contagious and super deadly — never really surfaced in the US. Now why would that be? Same thing happened as with so-called Covid19, people brought it on planes. But yet there was no big outbreak. Could Ebola be yet another fake virus, and actually be illness from ‘vaccines’?

        • Harry Bolsogna September 24, 2021 at 12:56 pm #

          Ebola is another bioweapon (AIDS, Marburg, Reston). OTRAG leased area in Zaire and was given control over the residents of the area. Tied to MKNAOMI. In 1976 Ebola “broke out” in 55 Zairian villages. Another breakout occurred in 1996 in Zaire. The 1996 virus was far too similar to the 1975 strain to have been natural.

          Heck, there used to be a specific H-1C visa intended to bring nurses in due to, “shortages,” but that ended in 2009.

          Now it looks like they would just bring them over on the standard H-1B.

          She said Phillipines and Ireland. I wonder if they will bring in Chinese as well. They seem to be taking over big-time in the big pharmaceutical industry as well, from what my friend who works in it says.

    • draupnir September 24, 2021 at 1:06 pm #

      They’ve already got a hospital that had to close labor and delivery because they were short of staff. If I were a nurse in NY City, I would take my expertise elsewhere. There are hospital in the country offering $5000 sign on bonuses and don’t require the jabs. If they can find a moving van, they could get out of the city, and none too soon, in my opinion. When it goes, that place is going to go down quickly

    “Any way you cut it, the fiasco on the US / Mexican border had turned into a big loss for the Big Guy… ”

    Looks like a win for the dems. They all promised to open the border if
    elected- here they are demonstrating that they keep their promise- a win. They can bring in the haitians to detract from another fiasco- the poor management of the Afghanistan withdrawal and the consequences of bringing the “translators” here. Another win. They can appear to be doing something by flying some Haitians from Chile back to Haiti. In order to fly, the Haitians have to test negative for Covid so the process of removing the covid clean Haitians from the group concentrates the infectives which they bus to areas that voted incorrectly or to areas where fewer people volunteered for the experimental genetic treatment. They can use the infected illegal aliens as a bio-weapon against wrong thinkers. Another win for the junta punish the pure-bloods as “Joe Bidan” vowed to do. And here on his blog we have a critic of the administration thinking that the fiasco is a big loss. It seems like a win amplification if you can win while your adversaries think you are losing. Another win for them is that the illegal aliens can further reduce the wages of working class white men who tended to vote wrongly.

    • Hereward the Woke September 24, 2021 at 11:15 am #

      Agreed, Jo-G. These are all massive wins for the evil leftists. Most conservatives are still trapped in the poll numbers-elections mindset. None of these matter anymore. Elections are stolen and polls don’t count. They have 3.5 years for more of the same. This will come down to civil war.

      • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:03 pm #

        Sadly, I believe you are correct. I am well past military age and have no real capability to be a part of that fight in any serious way, and yet….I bought an AR this year. Mainly for self-defense if the Zombie hordes invade my place and try to kill me and my people. Otherwise, I’m actually a very peaceful guy who hasn’t been in so much as a fistfight since junior high school.

        But, if CW2 comes, it will be nasty and civilians will suffer greatly. The elderly will be targeted by the worst scum because we are softer targets. So, I intend to be an unexpectedly hard target. Hopefully, it will send the less serious types scurrying if the bad times come to my door.

        If a real army shows up, though, I am toast and I know it. So, I don’t honestly want CW2 to happen, but from time to time my blood gets to boiling from all of the insanity being shoved down our throats by the Wokesters and the Biden Regime and on those days the idea of CW2 actually sounds like the only “solution” left to us.

        That’s a pretty good measure of how far we’ve allowed things to deteriorate in this country. Americans have been very foolish to allow the worst elements of the Left to march through all of our institutions virtually unopposed since the 1930’s. The chickens are now coming home to roost and we are all going to suffer as a result.

        I still prefer the idea of a peaceful partition of the country, if one can be arranged.

        • MaryQueen September 24, 2021 at 12:38 pm #

          What I truly hate about this, is that the anger we are feeling means the tyrants are winning! They created the situation by which we became so divided, and most fell for their tactics that cause it. So, our anger, while 100% justified, was engineered.

          That’s what makes me the most upset, that we are FORCED to act and feel in a way that has been engineered by the PTB.

          Drives me a bit nuts.

          • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:50 pm #

            I hear you. Our anger is a symptom of frustration. Our frustration is a symptom of powerlessness. Our powerlessness is a symptom of the corruption of our elections process.

            We are Americans. We were raised to believe that the people rule themselves in America. It is a severe psychological blow to us all to be blatantly confronted with the fact that it just isn’t so.

            It’s driving us all a bit bonkers as a result.

          • MaryQueen September 24, 2021 at 1:22 pm #

            Yes, I credit myself with being able to stay relatively sane during all of this, and would not have been able to do so if not for the people on this blog (thanks, James!) and some other (mostly online) friends.

            Thankfully, where I moved I have a friend (met on FB) who works for Big Pharma running trials (mostly antibiotics not vaccines) who has been incredibly informative and she also gets the big picture (although she claims she had covid19 which bugs me).

            Staying sane in insane times is no small feat. So I try to remember this, and give myself plenty of credit.

            Even though this is engineered and even though they want me to hate my neighbor, I refuse.

            I am angry and frustrated that they seem to be pulling this off – but I am grateful that I have met so many others who resist and see exactly what’s going on. And people are finding beautiful ways to fight back.

        His performance thus far as Attorney General has merely confirmed the wisdom of Trump and Mitch McConnell in denying a seat on the SCOTUS to that cretin a few years ago.

    Our host remains an optimist. Let’s hope JHK is right.

    I am not from Missouri, but I retain the Missouri attitude of “SHOW ME.”

    I’ll believe it when it actually happens, as in indictments issued; prosecutions vigorously pursued; judges allowing justice to happen instead of looking for ways to dismiss cases on flimsy procedural grounds; convictions happening; long terms of imprisonment handed down; and NO PARDONS issued.

    Does anyone here, including our esteemed host, really believe that Americans will live to see that kind of justice happen? Honestly. I just don’t see it. The system is too corrupt. Too far gone. The elites don’t want to go there.

        I’m pretty thoroughly black-pilled at this point. After watching all that was allowed to happen in 2020 it pretty much destroyed what little faith still remained in the ability of any institution or leadership to address the problems of systemic corruption

        It probably has not helped that I’ve since gravitated to watching Devon Stack “Black-Pilled” videos and listening to “LegalMan’s” podcast, “The Quash” which is black-pilled from a Libertarian point of view.

        As I’ve previously mentioned on this blog, I am a former CIA officer. I was not a “lifer.” I spent less than a decade with the Agency and soon found that it was not the noble, anti-communist, Cold Warrior entity that I had thought it was as a naive, young, Reaganite college student in the 1980’s, so I got out and returned to the real world, turning my back on the prospect of a comfortable federal pension in return for years and years of loyalty to the PTB. I could not stomach it.

        So, I’ve seen the “Deep State” from inside the belly of the beast and its not a pretty sight.

        • MaryQueen September 24, 2021 at 11:14 am #

          You are very valuable in that regard, having been a CIA officer. Those of us who haven’t but know what it’s about are called tinfoilers. I know about the ugliness, I have an 800-page book by HP Albarelli to thank for that. Plus all of the articles I’ve read.

          I am probably right there with you in the black-pilled department.

          • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:12 pm #

            Honestly, I rarely acknowledge my former employment to many other people these days because it is now an embarrassment to have ever been affiliated with that 3-letter agency.

            I did not always feel like that. I once took some pride in having been able to pass all of the screenings I had to go through to get the job and I felt like I did my part, in some small way, to end the Cold War on terms favorable to the West by being an intelligence officer.

            But after many years of reflection I’ve concluded that it was all a big waste of time. The CIA “won” nothing. The Soviet Union would have collapsed when it did whether the United States did anything or not. The system was unsustainable. All socialist systems are unsustainable in the long term.

            These days, it seems like the only purpose the CIA has is to spy on Americans or to waste U.S. money overseas poking our noses into situations that are not our business.

            George Washington had the right idea. No foreign entanglements. I’d be very happy to see the CIA dissolved and all overseas military bases closed and our troops returned to America to guard our borders.

          • MaryQueen September 24, 2021 at 12:44 pm #

            Hell, in the 1980s, I actually thought the CIA was ‘cool’ – I was that ignorant. I learned everything after 9/11.

            HP Albarelli’s book is excellent, by the way. Heavily footnoted. It’s called “A Terrible Mistake” and centers around Frank Olson’s murder. It covers all of their psyops, too. It’s how I learned that they use hypnotism tactics on the public (as well as poisoning). So that might be why I didn’t fall for the Covid19 hoax, I saw all the earmarks of an engineered psyop.

            It doesn’t hurt that I have also read a lot of David McGowan, who was a master of picking apart false flags and psyops.

            I am harder and harder to fool these days. That’s for sure.

            The CIA has to go. Kennedy was right. I don’t know how that can ever happen, though.

          • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 12:55 pm #

            Mary, my sense is that the CIA is now doing what J. Edgar Hoover used to do – spying on the politicians so that they can influence them or control them.

            I don’t have any insider knowledge that this goes on as I was too far down the food chain at Langley to know such things, but common sense and the things that were done to Trump tend to confirm that this goes on.

            For this reason, I do not believe that either political party would ever dissolve the CIA. It is a source of power because knowledge is power and they are good at collecting information. So, the uni-party in Washington will not get rid of CIA. Likewise, they will not get rid of the FBI, the NSA, the IRS, the BATF, or any of the other alphabet soup agencies and bureaus that make the lives of ordinary Americans a royal PITA.

            The only real escape is for the entire federal government to be dissolved, or for one or more states to withdraw from the union and get out from under the current federal tyranny that has been constructed over the past 160 years.

        Americans today are made of much less sterner stuff than those of the 1940’s were made of. They are called The Greatest Generation for nothing. My grandparents lived through both world wars and the Depression and managed to raise half a dozen children to respectable adulthood despite all of that.

        We were a better people then.

        Everything has been thrown away fecklessly by the Boomer generation that did so much damage to the country in the 1960’s (I am technically on the tail-end of the Boomer era, but I was too young to vote in the 1960’s), and subsequent generations have failed to roll-back the mistakes made in the 1960’s, so we are culpable as well.

I have recently read enough to convince me that LSD, and hysteria over rock ‘n’ roll stars had a lot to do with it. Women’s Lib came from Gloria Steinem, a Playboy Bunny CIA asset (by her own admission). Our entire culture seems to have been fabricated, not organic.

          So I can only blame the boomers so much… they were as bamboozled as most of society is now.

        I’m thinking so too. In March of 2020 I had a dry cough for 6 weeks and some gastrointestinal distress and thought it might have been the COVID, but subsequent blood tests say no COVID antibodies, so I don’t know what to think. I’m almost dubious and wonder if the labs are lying about the tests so that unjabbed people will get the jabs? They asked me if I was jabbed before administering the test and that makes me suspect them now.

        In any event, if it was COVID, it was a nuisance and nothing more.

          I have my powerful asthma meds (yeah, cortisone!) and take the usual stuff such as Vit C and extra zinc, Vit D. I’ve been pretty good during the China flu: first time I’ve passed a winter without a bad cold. Anyway, that’s enough me and my petty worries – there are a hell of a lot of people out there suffering much worse.

          Osha root is an excellent expectorant–the best I’ve found. You can buy the tincture at health food stores, but it’s a lot cheaper to buy the roots (Etsy has them) and some vodka and make your own tincture by the quart.

          Codonopsis root is also excellent. Just make a tincture of the roots.

          The easiest thing to do is to put several botanicals in a jar (fill the jar about 1/3 full) and then fill up the jar with vodka. Ready in a month, but you can actually start using it sooner.

          Other good botanicals to include in your tincture are mullein, fresh ginger, sage, Usnea barbata (if you suspect infection), sage, and slippery elm. Maybe Baikal skullcap. Maybe comfrey. Licorice root is good, but it raises blood pressure, so it’s chancy. Maybe a little wild cherry bark.

          I like to make the osha root as a standalone tincture, as I want it full strength.

          You can google these ingredients and decide what’s right for you.

          • Not_GeorgeT September 24, 2021 at 3:18 pm #

            “You can google these ingredients and decide what’s right for you.”

            It is important to learn the active ingredients. The “decide what’s right for you ” part is not to be taken lightly.

            As you point out, licorice and hypertension might not be a good fit.

            Something might appear as a good idea and benign at first glance. Responsible use includes researching the product.

            In the Asian pharmacies they have signs with rather large letters in English cautioning patrons to know and understand what they’re purchasing, as some items can be very harmful, if not fatal, when used improperly.

            Talk with a practitioner of Eastern medicine, which sometimes requires an interpreter. Cities with large Asian populations have such pharmacies readily available for those who would take the short time to actually look for them.

    As I’ve said before, vaccine mandates are racists and discriminatory. Oddly enough, more of us here will find an ally in the BLM movement along these lines. The rioting and pillaging will start anew:

      Strangely we may even find we have, not an ally but at least an example of what is possible, in the Talibann if only for the fact that a ragtag group of tribesmen inadequately equipped to defeat the American military and propaganda machine did exactly that, albeit after twenty years. I say this reluctantly because I am loathe to dishonor the fighting men and woman themselves; however, strictly speaking, as tools of the “Machine” I was elated to see it defeated.

          I’m doubling down and tripling down. Not out of blind defiance but simply because I’ve seen this rodeo before. Invariably what happens is that the whole thing will collapse from its own weight, decay and corruption, void of any moral authority. The efforts of bloggers like us, the unWoke medical and scientific community, alt news sources etc… IS working. But victory is not immediate.

          During WWII did the Allies capitulate in 1942 when the Wehrmacht continued to make advances, even after the U.S. entered the war? No! More recently, the Silence = Death Project started in NYC to raise awareness around the AIDS crisis in the late 1980’s which, eventually, helped greatly in saving many lives.

      cowbell – I was wondering about that, too.

      BLM is now leading the charge against vax restrictions at restaurants…when just a year ago they were harassing people at those same restaurants, forcing them to raise their fists in the air in “solidarity”…dozens of masked marauders leaning in, screaming, getting into innocent customers’ faces.. As a result, they can’t be trusted to do anything from a place of “good intentions”, but it appears the struggles may overlap from time to time.

      If you’d told me last June that we’d be rooting for them in any way after what they did to the country last year and the seven years prior, I would’ve said you’d have to be nuts. It was so obvious that none of what they did from the top down was about compassion or equality, only intimidation.

      That said, intimidation works, and if they have the same goal here and there, they can be helpful. But once whichever coincident “this or that” goal is achieved, they will turn back to the same inane, destructive behavior. That is essentially their stated charter, after all. They exist to foment. If not one thing, another.

        I keep waiting for BLM to realize that the vax mandates are going to especially impact blacks who have a lower uptake of the vax. Places such as NYC for instance which supposedly won’t allow entry into restaurants, venues, etc unless you have proof of being vaxed. I’d suspect that in black areas they are not going to enforce this. It will only be a problem when unvaxed blacks attempt to enter restaurants or venues in whiter areas such as the restaurant where the tourists from Texas beat up the employee who asked to see their papers.

        But even still I don’t see BLM as a potential ally. They may be able to end policies such as this by their willingness to use violence but in the end they still view me and mine as the enemy.

      Of course, I’m not sure how they arrived at that conclusion since they have targeted just about everyone, regardless of skin color, but that never stopped BLM before.

    Again folks, where one aligns politically has to do with one’s threshold for attraction to where power is perceived to be aggregating. Doesn’t matter whether that locus is labeled red, blue, Nazism, communism, democracy, etc., etc. Once one’s threshold has been reached one’s reasoning faculties flip to rationalizing one’s drift toward that growing power center.

    Remember, we’re herd animals having innate fear of banishment because through most of history that amounted to death sentence. That’s what has happened to academia. Today, history is sieved of its fuller context in service to the current generation’s narcissistic aggrandizement.

    That is, not to build comprehension of how action’s by past generations was conditioned by extant intellectual capital of the time.

            I concur, but of course there is always the rub of who (?) determines which history is real and which is fake. Obvious fabrications notwithstanding, much of history is a matter of interpretation and new facts occasionally rise to the surface that cause reassessments.

            However, crap like the 1619 project clearly are bogus and there should be some way to sanction that sort of nonsense, though I’m at a loss to propose the solution at the moment.

          • Cavepainter September 24, 2021 at 3:45 pm #

            Hey Wiz; why Western Culture made those unparalleled civilizing advances was due to the institutionalization of indifferent analysis of empirical evidence. That prevailed through my college education, started in the 1950s when practically all the profs were vets of WWII and/or the Korean conflict (one a Sorbonne Phd and ex French Resistance), so no “safe spaces” so I had my ass handed to me almost every class session.

            The foundational documents are not the problem. Life existed much more on a knife edge in the 18th century when the Constitution was formulated. Day-to-day survival and the realities of feeding oneself largely precluded the inclination to seek out and/or invent windmills at which to tilt.

            Contemporary society, so free from want and the thousand other natural shocks that have been the ever-present companions of humanity from the beginning and more importantly, free from the very knowledge of these things, begins to loathe and detest the civilization that has all but banished them. The heiress comporting with the revolutionary is a phenomenon heretofore unseen in human history as are the “privileged” so burdened by and contemptuous of the shear unprecedented fortune bequeathed to them by the giants on whose shoulders they stand that they feel the need to grovel before the “unprivileged”.

            Thus we have the curious situation of the man who has never missed a meal hating the very food that sustains him. Nobody has better catalogued this perverse and decadent state than Nietzsche:

            “There is a point in the history of society when it becomes so pathologically soft and tender that among other things it sides even with those who harm it, the CRIMINAL, and does so quite seriously and honestly.”

      Cavepainter:

      I believe your comment on power centers attracting is spot on.

      This was the Nazis playbook, and they attracted the power=hungry more than anyone else. The “ideologues” were eliminated when they became inconvenient (Night of the Long Knives; others were just demoted or sent to obscure parts of Germany or the East).

      The goal is to achieve POWER.

      Then, when the regular people see this they flock to join the supposed winners. This is the dynamic at work now, which is that anyone who says boo is regarded as a loser.
      On the wrong side.
      IMO only a major wave of deaths can potentially turn this tide. But not if the deaths are explained away. As occurred in the Third Reich.

      The Nazis halted their euthanasia program because too many German families were asking questions. But far fewer asked any questions when it came to elijminating the Jews, Gypsies, JWs, etc.
      Of course by the time things really got going the country was at war, so everything became more precarious.

  26. Beryl of Oyl September 24, 2021 at 10:53 am #

    The Market Ticker guy has an interesting piece today. It seems that back in 2020 a nursing home in Spain got invaded by the ‘ro and managed not to lose most of the residents, via the use of early treatment.

    Nobody heard about this, it was only written about in a medical journal in January of 2021:

    “… not one write-up was made in medical journals either until January of 2021, which I missed. My bad — out of the several hundred medical journal pieces, I missed this one. It was brought to my attention on my forum and my jaw immediately hit the floor.”

    https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=243683

    Mr, Denninger shouldn’t feel bad, I didn’t know about that article either, and I was in touch with many others who were scouring the internet for any information they could find. They didn’t know about it.

    BTW, don’t let anyone tell you hosting a website or commenting on one isn’t taking action.

    What I am finding stunning is that there apparently wasn’t anyone involved with the COVID “response” doing any of this work.

    This information was out there, in January 2021.

    “So what did these few nursing homes do that nobody has done since and nobody reported out at the time?

    1. Early start of treatment, regardless of the severity of patient symptoms.
    – Antihistamines every 12 h: dexchlorpheniramine 2 mg, cetirizine 10 mg or loratadine 10 mg.
    – Azithromycin 500 mg orally every 24 h for 3 days if there is rapid improvement, and for 6 days if the duration of symptoms is prolonged.
    – If pain or fever, acetaminophen 650 mg/6–8 h.
    – Nasal washing and gargling with sodium bicarbonate water (half a glass of warm water with half a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate).
    2. Patients with mild or recent-onset symptoms (cough, fever, general malaise, anosmia, polymyalgia):
    – Antihistamines + Azithromycin (see mild treatment management)
    – Levofloxacin 500 mg/12 h, up to 14 days of antibiotic treatment from diagnosis.
    – Mepifilin solution, 50 mg/8 h as a bronchodilator, until subjective improvement. Patients with previous lung disease (asthma or COPD) used their usual bronchodilators.
    – If the patient experienced increased breathing difficulty, prednisone 1 mg/kg/day divided into two doses until clinical improvement, and then it was slowly tapered down.
    3. If symptoms of severity (dyspnea, breathing difficulty, mild or moderate chest pain, with SpO2 >80%, heart rate <100 beats per minute at any time of the process):
    4. Prophylactic treatment for close contacts, including all asymptomatic residents:
    – Antihistamines at the same dose as symptomatic patients."

    So, did they neglect to have anyone on board who was keeping up with the data. or was it deliberately ignored?

    In any case, the damage done cannot be quantified, and we are still doing it.

      Thanks for recounting the treatment.

      Nothing in the list, from my quick perusal, is under patent. Some items are available on grocery store shelves.

      The SpO2 is low in the list, generally under 94% is an indicator of distress, and I think to HR would be >100, not <100. Would be nice to have ETCO2, side stream would give a useable value. Lung sounds are easy to assess, just takes a little practice.

      All-in-all a good approach, I'm going back to the link you provided to extract a few more morsels.

        Went to the link, I did a lot of research at the time, I missed this one along with the Market Ticker guy and a number of commenters on the site.

        I was on top of what Didier Raoult was saying and publishing, which is in line with a lot of what these people in Spain were doing. A similar approach using low profit high safety margin treatments with lengthy histories of experience with use.

        He was essentially pilloried by both the French and international medical establishments for his rather informed and effective treatment methods. In this he was not alone.

        Conjecture: these Spanish folks kept it somewhat quiet so they could continue treating their immediate populations without interference. If true, it is one more black mark against the prevailing medical establishment.

    What most don’t realize and what I have gathered from talking to people from all over the country as well as having seen it mentioned by many doctors who are speaking out, we DO have a pandemic of respiratory illness in young people directly related to mask-wearing.

    And the horrible thing about that is, they are forced to wear them all day at school, and some even while exercising.

    Many of us warned how unhealthy and dangerous this is 1.6 years ago and of course no one (in authority) listened – and worse, don’t care. Plenty of evidence showing the negative effects of mask wearing, including dental problems as well. Dentists must be making a killing these days!

      T-Giving 2020, we drove 3.5 hrs to my mom’s ‘mountain chalet’ between Tehachapi and Isabella (CA). My brother was there also. We (wife and I) were determined to not bring up the subject, wanted a peaceful holiday with mom and brother. He spontaneously changed dinner-convo subject to masks. When I tried to describe to him why masks were a really shitty idea, he worked himself into a huff and stormed out of the house. “I’m going home!”…making for a 7-hr drive with no TG dinner, and causing mom some bitter disappointment.

      Long before that, near the start of the TDS pandemic, he became a FacePunch brownshirt. This is an indication that the media used TDS to get folks into a lather, and then effortlessly redirected them into the C19 chamber.

    The mess on the Del Rio border says it all about the level of competence and authority the government has now lead by the Democrats. It hamstrung itself for four years wailing about “this is not who we are” and demanding the borders be open. I guess a lot of Haitians in Chile watch TV.

    What I find really interesting is why is no one is asking how they got there. They didn’t walk from Chilie to Del Rio, through Mexico in the summer with pregnant women, rolling suitcases and lots of children. It’s pretty obvious to me they were flown in and then bused to the border. Some of the pictures I’ve seen clearly have luggage, loaded backpacks, tents, etc. Almost immediately, newsmen were’t allowed in and sending drones over to view the situation was prohibited.

    And it was casually mentioned on the news that more are on the way. We’ll see what happens.

        It baffles me how the Border Patrol is NOT suffering a mass exodus of officers from its ranks. Who is the hell would want to endure such abuse from your alleged “superiors.”

        They are no longer allowed to control the border. They are just a glorified “welcome wagon” service for lawbreakers who cross our borders illegally and with impugnity.

        I can scarcely imagine a more demoralizing job…..

        ….except for being a doctor or nurse in a hospital prohibited from treating COVID patients with life-saving therapeutic drugs.

        So, yeah, Border Patrolmen, and medical care folks working for large healthcare organizations that crack the whip over them because they don’t want the Medicare/Medicaid money to be cut off from D.C.

          The Border Patrol are in the same predicament as the local police it seems to me. A tough job and when either a mistake is made or a one of them abuses their power (and sometimes they do) all perspective is lost in the “outrage” by media morons or people like Maxine Waters/Al Sharpton/Keith Ellison and on and on.

          You might find this interesting — I heard on the news that part of that gigantic spending bill has a provision in it to get rid of local police and have a federal police force. The rationale for this is so “the tragedy of George Floyd won’t be repeated.”

          You’re right JHK — it is all happening at once.

          • Wizard of the Saddle September 24, 2021 at 5:11 pm #

            All federal law enforcement should be dissolved. I’m not even a huge fan of city police forces. They often are used as enforcers of woke edicts but won’t arrest BLM or Antifa for anything.

            County Sheriffs are a different matter. I’m all for expanding Sheriff’s departments to fill the vacuum. Texas Rangers and state cops are fine by me as well. I’m just sick of the Feds. Too much power. Get rid of the FBI, BATF, Secret Service, etc. Who needs them?

    • Islander September 24, 2021 at 1:12 pm #

      SW

      Flipping the narrative so that it was about “whipping” was very clever. Presumably those Border Patrol officers were sent to the location to prevent continued crossing from Mexico over that weir.

      Just like the photo of the little Syrian boy’s body on on the shore of a Greek island was used to quash criticism of the migrant invasion of Europe in 2015.

      Even though it was the US and European powers who were trashing Syria so that Syrians were fleeing (and then opportunists jump on the bandwagon and join the stream of actual refugees). That whole thing really did end up looking orchestrated.

      The “look” of things has overtaken any ability to analyze and discuss what is actually going on and why.

      How the hell are they getting there? Couldn’t this all be stopped at Mexico’s southern border? How are thousands managing to transit Mexico? I don’t get it.

      • SW September 24, 2021 at 1:30 pm #

        They aren’t transiting Mexico’s border at all b/c there’s absolutely no way 15,000 people walked from Chile in the summer. It couldn’t have been done in the winter either of course but that’s the point. The fact that they suddenly materialized with families and children smack dab on the Texas border wasn’t an accident. It was planned but who planned it? Who paid for the planes to get them out of Chile? I wish we had real reporters who would snoop around in Mexico and figure how this was managed.

        While the media shrieks about the border patrol, the border patrol is unable to defend itself. The only safe way for them to get into those gullies is by horseback b/c a vehicle could get stuck or flip. But there will soon be even fewer to patrol.

    If polls and elections no longer matter, why did Whitmer just do a 180 and commit to signing a Michigan budget bill that bans masks and jabs, effective October 1st?

    It’s claimed she did this in response to cratering poll numbers for the upcoming election, but we already know that the blue hives in Michigan will, “fortify,” the election for her.

      In reality, three of the mainstream parties are 100% in Klaus Schwab’s pocket and were quite vocal in calling for restrictions up until now. Two parties have even gone so far as to hide some of there most vicious and vocal members for now.

            We still seem to be losing sight of the fact that for most people this crud is of absolutely no consequence. My double vaxxed neighbour who has been utterly obsessed with masking and distancing and following ‘the rules’ has enjoyed several days in bed with Covid. (Smug grin.)

            I haven’t spoken to him about it. I really couldn’t care. No doubt his response would be along the lines of “it would have been worse without the vax.” We can never win the argument while the masses remain so blinded.

      Many are now opposed to lockdowns and vaccine mandates, some who are vaccinated are full of fear of long term consequences and likely only half the population is happy with the management of the pandemic.

      The longer it goes on the more clear it will become that the severity of the disease does not warrant the mitigation measures and so suspician of ulterior motives becomes rational.

      All the while competent and devoted citizens in labs around the world are working on much improved, greatly more lethal viruses. A lab escape is certain, only the timing is not.

      Or a lethal natural virus emerges. When that happens and a real pandemic of black plague proportions develops it will take a long time before the citizens will again agree to be manhandled in the fashion they are now. Only then we will no have that time.

      Maybe the “pandemic” is only a prelude to the real thing.

        I am at the place (after a shit tone of research) where I’m not really sure I buy into germ/virus theory. I’m leaning towards terrain theory (for many reasons I won’t go into here).

        If that is the case, we don’t have pandemics. We have pestilence. THroughout history when we have had global warming, we don’t have pestilence. When we have global cooling, we do. Because of things like crop failures, and then starvation or malnutrition. It goes hand in hand. So why would we be having a pandemic now, when food is abundant and crops aren’t failing? Except whoops, farmers are paid to destroy their crops, and they have poisoned the air, water and food. There you go: Manufactured pestilence.

        Someone was talking about how fat everyone is, yet we are as a whole, more malnourished than ever. This is also engineered.

        So it should start people thinking that maybe they don’t need to do anything but keep this up and as people drop dead from all of these factors, they can slap a pandemic name on it and Bob’s your uncle!

        Then, when they’ve convinced everyone there is a pandemic, they can poison the people who are unfortunate to go to the hospital or nursing home with something like, say, Remdisivir, and ‘prove’ that they died of whatever pandemic.

        Terrain theory would also explain why the elites have zero fear of catching covid19 – they are aware it doesn’t exist.

        I really wish all of these people who insist that it’s an escaped bioweapon would reconsider that line of thinking because it’s just way too inconsistent for that to be true.

        For instance, why am I fine after 1.6 years ‘exposed’ to this supposed ‘highly contagious’ pathogen? And why is it that not one person I know has died of it?

    In an airport this week: I got stuck when a plane got delayed and was in the airport for 13 hours. A recorded announcement comes on: “Federal law requires all persons to properly wear a mask over their nose and mouth at all times. Persons who do not comply may be fined and removed from the property.”

    This recording plays every 10 minutes. Hour after hour.

    Eventually, all you hear is, “Comply….comply….comply…”

    Also made the happy observation that if you have a coffee cup next to you, no matter for how many hours, it is the magic talisman that lets you keep your mask down under your chin, because, hey, I’m drinking coffee here.

My community: Try and gather a few like minded nomadic friends and get a piece of sustainable land somewhere in a still fairly free state. Baring that, move onto friends’ land in Upstate NY.

      For many years, my dream was to establish an intentional community, but instead of the usual model, I wanted it to be a community where everyone owned a modest home and enough land for food and fuel self-sufficiency. Around here, that is about 5-15 acres–enough for a big garden and wood lot, fruit trees, dairy goats, chickens, a couple of cattle, and a place to fatten 3-4 hogs.

      One of course wishes for a religious community (like the Amish), as this would lend cohesiveness and a shared culture and values. The RLDS do things like this, though I don’t know how well it works out.

      My daughter has spoken of doing something like this, with the rather sweet addition of a bell ringing for the Angelus–perhaps inspired by the painting that used to grace almost every rural farmhouse.

      I guess things like this could happen, but people would have to be pressed very hard.

    Half of the country would probably root for the New Founding Fathers in “The Hunger Games” if they watched it now, as opposed to the oppressed heroine we were all meant to side with. That’s where we’re headed.

      On the connections to Wuhan, I believe a big slice of the puzzle has been missed with the Professor Charles M. Lieber (former Chair of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard) who was indicted in January 2020. I believe I posted links on CFN before, so apologize for the repetition.

      Alison McDowell (“Wrench in the Gears” and that’s her website also) is a good follow and forensic source on all things ‘smart’ ‘nanotech’ and transhumanist as is Dr Joseph P Farrell (gizadeathstar.com) where I first caught wind of the Lieber connection.

      Of course, no dual use or military application whatsoever, nothin’ to see here folks, move swiftly along.

      I recall sex ed being rather controversial for some folks when I was a kid…we had a teacher that gave us “the talk” at school in 6th grade.

      They didn’t hand out condoms or anything (which was the big concern of some of the parents, if I recall), but they said the basics. “Two people love each other, this goes here, this is what happens, abstinence is the best choice until you’re older.” We all giggled at the use of the anatomical terms. But we got the point.

      They did not say “Hey, let’s pretend you’re gay! Who in class would you want to have sex with?”

      Take a look at Caroll Quigley’s “Evolution of Civilizations”:
      http://www.carrollquigley.net/pdf/Carroll-Quigley-TheEvolutionOfCivilizations-AnIntroductionToHistoricalAnalysis-1st&2nd-Editions.pdf

      From page 152:

      The Age of Conflict (Stage 4) is a period of imperialist
      wars and of irrationality supported for reasons that are
      usually different in the different social classes. The masses
      of the people (who have no vested interest in the existing
      institution of expansion) engage in imperialist wars because
      it seems the only way to overcome the slowing down of ex-
      pansion.

      Unable to get ahead by other means (such as
      economic means), they seek to get ahead by political action,
      above all by taking wealth from their political neighbors. At
      the same time they turn to irrationality to compensate for
      the growing insecurity of life, for the chronic economic
      depression, for the growing bitterness and dangers of class
      struggles, for the growing social disruption and insecurity
      from imperialist wars.

      This is generally a period of gambling,
      use of narcotics or intoxicants, obsession with sex (fre-
      quently as perversion), increasing crime, growing numbers
      of neurotics and psychotics, growing obsession with death
      and with the Hereafter.

      The vested interests encourage the growth of imperialist
      wars and irrationality because both serve to divert the
      discontent of the masses away from their vested interests
      (the uninvested surplus). Accordingly, some of the de-
      fenders of vested interests divert a certain part of their sur-
      plus to create instruments of class oppression, instruments
      of imperialist wars, and instruments of irrationality.

But anyway, It’s a bit woke in the sense that peoples and their ability to direct control or influence and events in the 4th stage is not mentioned at all and this is a point I think should be stressed to readers. The following might be a quibble but if vested interests encourage irrationality, that is no fault of theirs if alert people who know better actually subscribe to it.

        That is why they are using back-door methods in Europe. I mentioned this last week, but in Italy, they still allow testing in place of the clot shot but are forcing people to get the actual passport. Without the app, people are shut out from everything.

        Workers have to be tested so often that it is not sustainable, and it is PCR, which is painful and dangerous.

        Germany isn’t that much different at this point. We now have mandated testing to go to the office if one is away for more than 5 days.

        One lie after another.

        • GreenAlba September 25, 2021 at 11:18 am #

          Being away for 5 days is just as likely to lower your chances of being infected as to raise them, I’d have thought.

          At this stage (and I’m aware it’s only at this stage), we’re better off in some respects in the UK. With the exception of the Scottish pass becoming mandatory for large events, which doesn’t affect most people yet, and Sturgeon’s uncontained enthusiasm for jabbing children as soon as possible.

          My older daughter works in a nursery/kindergarten, and lateral flow testing is still voluntary, even though they don’t like the fact that she won’t confirm she’s doing it. She’s also been told by the head teacher that she’s stupid for not getting the jab (yet).

          On the other hand, jabs are becoming mandatory for care staff and health workers.

          • Night Owl September 25, 2021 at 11:48 am #

            RE: 5 days — yes, I agree. It is simply another means to pressure and complicate the lives of those who don’t want the shot.

    We need to remember that these “cases” are determined by PCR tests which, depending on the cycle threshold, can return up to 90% false positive results. Check out this testimony by a occptnl therapist at one of Oahu’s largest nursing homes regarding how its billing dept changes codes and counts patients as covid patients regardless of the reason they were admitted.

      Clearly a stunt to confuse both sides of the argument. The fact that they went through these motions live on air is the proof. Anyone producing live television can tell you these sorts of situations would be taken care of off camera, if real.

      And they did it when Kamala was coming on, in order to increase the viewership of the stunt from their regular 24 people.

      By doing this, they gave the unvaxxed ammo in that they admitted that clearly you can “catch it” even when vaxxed.

      They also gave the vaxxed ammo in then proclaiming that “they’ll be fine, they won’t end up in the hospital with serious symptoms, because they’ve had all the vaxxes. It’s just a couple ‘breakthrough’ cases, you see.”

      Basically all this does is keep the people fighting. So obvious…but the people pulling the strings know that it will work in their favor either way…
