Actually, Progressive-Liberal abortion policy never went far enough. If only abortion were retroactive! We could send “Joe Biden” (and maybe all of Wokedom) back to the pre-embryonic cosmic darkness preceding conception? Otherwise, we’ll have to run him out of the Oval Office like some short-timer Guatemalan generalissimo, since he has completed the transition of the USA into a Third World backwater… and thus, served his purpose.

Was that it, by the way? Was “Joe Biden” a kind of suicide bomber sent into the White House overtly by dimly-perceived parties to blow up the ragged remnants of a once-dignified republic? There’s a cohort of observers, including many sage commenters on this blog, who would say so. One way or another, Ol’ White Joe’s days at the helm are numbered now. Even the claque of quasi-literate brown-nosers in the news media are turning on him since he glanced at his watch too many times while the dead marines’ bodies were rolled out before him at Dover AFB. At least he didn’t yawn or light a cigarette, too.

These cool and lovely, pre-Fall nights, Kamala Harris must be chugging Gray Goose by the liter, chasing  her Xanax, up at the Veep’s mansion, the old Naval Observatory, probably the nicest house she’ll ever live in because she’s not ever moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., nosiree. The parties dimly-perceived behind all this … this meshugas… got it so wrong with her. She was supposed to be an insurance policy against removing “JB,” while he acted as an automatic legislation signing machine.

But it’s rock-and-a-hard-place time now for the power players in our nation’s capital, and I’m thinking that Kamala’s thinking that they’re thinking that maybe Kamala has to go, too… and maybe not in a pretty way… like maybe something goes wrong on Air Force Two a hundred miles east of Ascension Island in the South Atlantic en route to Botswana… and the long-awaited official meet-and-greet with President Mokgweetsi Masisi… which never happens…. Wake up Kammie!!!! Oh no, it’s even worse than a bad dream, she’s thinking. It’s reality!

Those parties dimly perceived surely think they can get away with anything now. There is no accountability, nor any memory of what it used to mean. Things just happen and unhappen, like in some raw, pre-conscious nasty-and-brutish animal kingdom, which is exactly what our country has become when you factor-in mass Woke lobotomization, meth and fentanyl addiction, social media mind-fuckery, and Covid hysteria. Klaus Schwab, you are taking this a little too far now, yes? It’s one thing to own nothing and be happy, but to remember nothing, too? That compliant surviving population of a half-billion serfs you wish to reserve to peel your grapes won’t even be able to carry out the simplest instructions. Something has gone very wrong with your Great Reset… if that’s what this is.

I prefer to label it the long emergency, simply the endgame of the techno-industrial hypertrophic phase of history. You could see it coming from a hundred months away, but now that it’s here, Western Civ has turned from tragedy to farce to psychosis. The pharmaceutical lobbying group known as the American Medical Association called this week for an “immediate end” to the use of ivermectin to treat Covid-19. They forbid member doctors to prescribe it. They follow the CDC and the FDA in condemning the drug, sentencing it to the ducking stool… burning it at the stake! “Use of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 has been demonstrated to be harmful to patients,” they say.

They lie, of course. And they want all the doctors to lie. How many of them will go along to get along? Do they care if this psychotic nonsense destroys what remains of medical practice just as race-and-gender studies have destroyed higher ed? One not-so-distant day the docs will show up for work, but the overgrown hospitals will be out of business, doors shuttered, and the docs will be back to making house-calls with a little black bag… no more German cars for you… and maybe a chicken in exchange for a little bootleg Ivermectin, if you’re lucky! As it happens, I take the veterinary-grade Ivermectin myself as a prophylactic, because that’s all you can get easily around here. I haven’t felt better in years. Perhaps I had pinworms (Enterobius vermicularis). Anyway, I don’t have Covid. I also take Vitamin D3 and zinc. Anathemize that, you chiseling bastards!

Everybody I consort with has had enough of the whole nauseating game — the lying politicians, the lying media, the lying medical bureaucrats, the lying generals, the lying teachers, the lying celebrities, the lying tech moguls, the entire armature of counter-reality you want to impose on a once-fair land. We will never do your bidding. We will never peel your grapes. There are more of us than you. Go ahead, push just a little bit harder.

    AMEN! I suspect that is the real plot. They’re are trying to provoke a reaction from the outraged citizens of America who still love their country. Hence the humiliating spectacle of the Afghanistan exit, which is such an insult to the soldiers who gave so much of themselves to that war. They are trying to provoke a reaction so that they can turn it into another Jan-6 type of propaganda stunt which they can then use as justification for subsequent heavy handedness…”See.. we have a right-wing threat which needs to be quashed and to this end, we will unleash a China-style surveillance police state. It’s all for our own safety!”

    I say Americans should give it to them. Assail them, drag them out of their gated communities and nonsense jobs in office buildings, tie them up to the pyre and burn them. Drag every fascist Antifa thug out of his home and send him to a concentration camp. Drag every feminist out of her cushy college lecture theater, and sell her to Saudi Arabia as a sex slave. Let her learn what a real patriarchy is. And so on and so forth for every other variant of the leftist virus – ie the ACTUAL pandemic which has been consuming society.

      Maybe be the grey man just a little longer? I’m sensing a hardening of attitudes amongst some people who are tired of this whole Covid hustle and that will only extend to other such frauds in time. They’ve got the floor, allow them their mistakes.

      • Islander September 3, 2021 at 9:42 am #

        Agree.

        Watch and wait.
        Wait and watch.

        Don’t make yourself a target.

        Meanwhile there are beach plums to pick and other realism-based calming things even those who lack gardens can do while feeling gratitude to be still alive.

        Epigraph on gravestone of 17th C woman:

        “These I saw /
        Look ye also while life lasts.”

            The Wonder of the World

            From the old stone
            The carven words reproach me,
            Beside the rows of quiet dead:

            The wonder of the world,
            The beauty and the power,
            The shapes of things,
            Their colors, lights and shades,
            These I saw.
            Look ye also
            While life lasts.

            Earth, air and upper air,
            Earth, air and water I knew,
            And the sun on my face.
            The voices of women and men,
            The shouting of children,
            These I knew.
            Harken ye, also.
            Drink while life lasts
            The wine of astonishment.

            So spoke the stone.

            The seven lines of the second stanza are taken from an old Swedish gravestone, and are quoted by Olaus J. Murie of Moose, Wyoming.

            — Janet Loxley Lewis (for a choral piece by Alva Henderson, Autumn, 1979)

            The wonder of the world
            The beauty and the power,
            The shapes of things,
            Their colours, lights and shades,
            These I saw.

If you’re not used to buying it, educate yourself before you come in so you don’t look like…….well, someone who doesn’t own a horse! In my locale there are all sorts of warning signs on the display now, telling us not to take it for Covid etc. Please wait til you turn blue and your blood oxygen level is 70 and then go to the hospital,for treatment…….

          • bluedog September 3, 2021 at 3:26 pm #

            Lol now that depends on upon the world’s most powerful military which is the figment of someone’s imagination and Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan is more than proof of that, it’simply propaganda to make the people think they are getting something for all those billions/trillions that they shovel into the MIC. If you want to look at the greatest military power in the world today look to Russia, they have weapons that we only dream about and no their armed forces aren’t loaded up with homosexuals.

        • Hereward the Woke September 3, 2021 at 2:26 pm #

          Disagree, Islander. As Solzhenitsyn said, you have to oppose the fascists at the beginning. Make them fear for their lives. No more gray, just black or white.

          • Soul Forensics September 3, 2021 at 3:37 pm #

            Yes, Solzhenitsyn said even a minority standing strong and fighting back, in the beginning, would’ve been enough to turn the bureaucrats (who were never on board ideologically) to their side.

            The Cheka, and even the NKVD, let some of the biggest shit disturbers go at the outset, concentrating on the weak, fearful, and silent instead.

          • Islander September 3, 2021 at 5:17 pm #

            HI, Hereward,

            I don’t disagree with you.

            But there is timing.

            I don’t mean watch and wait forever.

            But for now I think that is the thing to do.

            Small example: I am glad I “waited” with the jab. Relevant data are piling up.

            I am watching to see whether/when insight breaks out in portions of the American public. Meanwhile I know of a few in my community who are refusing the jab. Not sure how sophistictaed they are politically, however (Christian Scientists).

            So, for now, for me, it’s watch and wait/ wait and watch.
            Also, I am on my own and must take care of myself first, actually.

          • Vegas Nuclear Dude September 3, 2021 at 8:02 pm #

            I guess it comes down to whether the NPCs will really rise up. I believe most will.

          • Yohannon September 3, 2021 at 9:05 pm #

            The Fascists fought the Globalists and their antifa goons long ago in Germany, Italy, and Spain.

            But still the Red triumphed as per your language. Two generations after Franco saved Spain, most people thought he was bad guy. Education. They didn’t purge the schools.

          • mumbai September 4, 2021 at 2:09 am #

            You first and then hope your mug mates follow.

          • ATM September 4, 2021 at 10:10 am #

            Exactly. The worst thing you can do is lay low and wait.

            By the time they get to you your friends will all have been long gone and you will go without a fight.

            They need to fear for their survival every second of every day.

          • IpFreely September 5, 2021 at 7:04 pm #

            How? Armed revolution? Nationwide strike? I’m willing to go all in, I haven’t got long to live anyway, but who’s with me?

      • Alexander September 3, 2021 at 12:20 pm #

        I agree. The only way to win this con-game is to not play it — at least to the extent that we can still maintain our lives. I have as little as I can to do with the system that is designed to suck me into a vortex of fear and fecklessness. So I move aside and watch the system implode from not only my disengagement, but that of millions of other folks who see through the lies and are willing and able to re-direct their energies and activities into more-wholesome (and more-separate) lives.
        The almost-worst thing we could do is get trapped into counter-lies, instead of exercising our integrity with stand-alone truths. The worst thing would be to fight back on the system’s own terms and advance the totalitarian-suppression agenda as “domestic terrorists.” What a set-up!

        • GG September 3, 2021 at 2:33 pm #

          For those wanting a doc to prescribe human grade Ivermectin, go to http://www.covid19critical care.com. There is a list of docs there, some licensed in all states. We just signed up and ran it thru our local GP and he blessed it and even offered to prescribe it himself if we wanted him to. He was more interested in the second prescription for fluvoxamine maleate we got for immediate use in case of infection. Our local doc thought it was a good idea.

          • oilie September 3, 2021 at 4:24 pm #

            Same site, with a list of physicians. I obtained a prescription from one for $115 that was filled at a local pharmacy in two hours. You might want to call your pharmacy and verify that they can fill he prescription at an affordable price before selecting an online doctor.

          Maybe get in touch with Dr Stella Immanuel, a Houston doctor who spoke at a Michigan ReAwaken rally on 20 August, suggesting America’s health problems were linked to alien DNA and sperm from demons?

    • O.G. Hawkins September 3, 2021 at 10:18 am #

      It is telling, vis-a-vis how far we have come, when the Pro-Freedom side is also clamouring for Concentration Camps.

      • oswegatchie September 3, 2021 at 12:12 pm #

        So maybe we can have 2 sets of camps. No intermingling though. Not healthy.

        • oswegatchie September 3, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

          Talking about camps, there are a bunch of FEMA trailers and various RV’s sitting in a field about 3 miles north of Reedsport, Oregon. They have been there for at least a year now. They are behind a security fence and always have 1 or more ” authority” figures within the area. Anyone else seen anything strange like that around other parts of the former USSA?

          • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:22 pm #

            In Jan. 2009 I drove across northern LA on my way to Amarillo, TX, and passed a huge lot of trailers (all identical, no logos) and some RV’s, spanning many acres along the interstate. I presumed this was a collection of leftover emergency shelters from Katrina in August 2005.

      Why do you call it humiliating? It was glorious, if you no longer feel any attachment to the regime in DC. It was certainly humiliating for them. Apparently you don’t need tanks, airplanes, and nuclear weapons, contra Joe Biden, to defeat that regime. Commitment, morale, and AK47s will do.

      They do really want an armed uprising here, though: that they WILL put down with force. People walking away and letting things collapse slowly in the public sector they cannot do anything about. I hope that idea,or a general strike, becomes more fixed in people’s minds.

      • JTinMD September 3, 2021 at 10:37 am #

        Did you see how young those Taliban were? Must have been indoctrinated from toddlerhood. Kinda like our youth, only with a slightly different flavor. Same end game, though — strict obedience, or else.

        • DrTomSchmidt September 3, 2021 at 11:52 am #

          Young men are natural fanatics. If the fanaticism is lucky enough to find an enemy to focus against, they will defeat it. They are dangerous, as they are here in random violence.

          The man who organizes them will win much. Won’t be me.

          • thirdcoastlegend September 3, 2021 at 2:52 pm #

            Young USSA males may be mental fanatics.

            However, it is also true most of them are physically effeminate wimps.

          • Blackbird September 3, 2021 at 9:12 pm #

            USSA males are mental fanatics about one thing.

          Indoctrinated from toddlerhood. Much like here except I would put my few dollars left on 10 of their youth against 1000 of ours. They appear strong, healthy, and determined. Need I point out the sad state of ours over here?

          • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:25 pm #

            “Indoctrinated from toddlerhood. ” And so are we all. Some of this indoctrination is useful — some of the time and for some of the people. . A very few can do more & better than they have been indoctrinated to do. A vast overestimation of our individuality and freedom of choice is the rule for most of the human race. No news, this.

        • Islander September 3, 2021 at 4:48 pm #

          Many Taliban grew up as refugees in orphanages in Peshawar, Pakistan, after the departure of the USSR from Afg. There they came under the influence of Wahhabist teachers/missionaries/fanatics from Saudi Arabia.

          Maybe SA was actually funding these orphanages.

          • mumbai September 4, 2021 at 2:21 am #

            No ‘maybe’ about it – it was the compact between the ISI & the CIA, Saudis pay, the ISI makes it clear that they only get to play with their toys north of Quetta and the CIA gets the heroin.

      • Paul September 3, 2021 at 11:42 am #

        “They do really want an armed uprising here, though: that they WILL put down with force.”

        Aye to that. Instead of Commitment to the AK47, why not exercise Commitment to a conscious and steady withdrawal from everything that is unnecessary?

        It would be a kind of conservation of human-energy, and of course it would start with individuals. . .

        • DrTomSchmidt September 3, 2021 at 11:50 am #

          That’s been my approach. I have already decided that they’re going to try to steal my retirement dollars. I’ll make some arrangements to make that harder… but it’s coming. As to the rest: I’ve found through Covid that I don’t need much. If food supply gets cut off, I’m in trouble after a while. I’m ok with that.

          I’m not ok with submission to their wills.

        Any word on what happened to the 60s back to the land hippies?
        Those who bought then are sitting on multi millions – if they sell before paper money becomes useful as kindling.

        • U R IntheVillage September 4, 2021 at 12:02 pm #

          The back-to-the-land-hippies of the ’60’s-’70’s mostly wimped out after the experiment. They discovered that farming is a lot of work, especially without diesel powered cultivators and combines and cornpickers. The communes of all types failed after it was apparent that there was a natural inclination for 80% of the members to do at best 20% of the work.

          The 20% that did the work looked around and said “Fuck it,” and they left. Then the 80% that remained said “Fuck it, the people that did all the work just left.”

          Surprise, surprise. But there were some genuine entrepreneurs among the hippies. They gradually shed the external semiotics of hippiedom like going around barefoot and shirtless with unmanaged shoulder length hair and untrimmed beards, and put their shoulder to the wheel and founded things like Apple and Jansport.

          Some may even have stuck it out as real farmers and eventually sold out to an REIT or the Boswell’s. They now live in gated communities or on large swaths of unspoiled land in Northern California or Oregon. They are Sultans of the NIMBY folk. “Save the redwoods,” after their decks are built. &c.

            A short history of the back-to-the-land movement.

            When I was in training for the Peace Corps I became friends with a young couple who had gotten married the week before they shipped out. We went off to different countries in Latin America and lost touch.

            A few years later I was buying rice in the local co-op in Eugene Oregon when who should be behind the counter but my friend! Turns out he had been Poverty Program Director for Marin County California. (the richest county in CA) He and a group of like minded friends were buying land in the Coast Range in order to raise organic vegetables (pot) and communally raise their kids free of public school brainwashing. They asked me to come look at their land and advise the best locations to plant on. Upon inspecting it I told them the land was so sour it would barely raise thistles., That wasn’t really a problem because they were now into acid rather than pot.

            Flash forward a couple of years and I was selling a little duplex I’d remodeled and lived in during graduate school. Who should call but my friend who was now a realtor/property developer. His wife had slept through all the members of both sexes in the commune before leaving to Portland with a software developer and taking the kids with her.

          During Peace Corps training we played a game called “Who is the Spook?” The most skilled one nobody fingered– he simply didn’t show up for the plane to Bogota. Once I got to Colombia the game was no longer a challenge because the CIA spooks were so inept that they might as well had signs on their backs.

            @Bill7 @mumbai

            Listen to yourselves! One person’s outrage and frustration boils over, as is bound to happen in times like these, and you accuse him of being a plant.

            Please read what I wrote below in response to U R IntheVillage. Peaceful resistance probably WON’T work. Do you know why? Because the radicals in office now began their careers with peaceful resistance. Remember all the civil rights protests, the placard waving, the masochistic lying down in front of tanks, the self-handcuffing to oil pipelines and stuff like that? They know the game better than anyone else. They will understand the motives of whoever decided to protest peacefully and will deal with them swiftly BEFORE they become nuclei of discontent who might attract a following. They will NOT make the same mistake as their predecessors: they will NOT be tolerant and allow dissent.

      • shox September 4, 2021 at 1:36 am #

        @U R IntheVillage

        I’m no plant. Been following Kunstler since 2005. I’ve just lived in parts of the world where the Marxist-Leninist subversion of society has run its full course, until society and the human spirit, not to mention the economy and the nation’s standing on the world stage, are completely destroyed. I’ve lived it and felt it in my own skin, whereas Americans who have never set foot outside America treat it as a mere intellectual abstraction. They have a “It could never happen here” attitude.

        If people are not prepared for an armed uprising, there is ONLY ONE conclusion to this story: the Democrats, if not checked by an equal and opposite force which is backed by arms, will, to use Kunstler’s somewhat excessive words in this blog post “…[complete] the transition of the USA into a Third World backwater.”

        Come back to reality. Think about things seriously…

        They were brazen enough to defraud an entire presidential election on a scale never before seen. They spew lies and propaganda non-stop and keep the perception alive in people’s minds that 2+2=5 (speaking figuratively of course). They will even push a hastily-developed and dangerous vaccine upon the population whilst suppressing better, cheaper and more effective treatments. They will exaggerate the COVID threat in order to prolong lock-downs and in so doing destroy the economy. They will open the floodgates at the border, allow hordes of human beings to pour in and submerge Americans, destroying what little self-respect they have left. And they will accuse anyone who points it out as being a “Great-Replacement” conspiracy theorist; all the while they know in their hearts that the Great Replacement is real and necessary for them to stay in power.

        And you really think that they will respect peaceful resistance? Have you forgotten that the radicals who are now in office used to protest in the streets and lie down in front of tanks and APC’s in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s? They know that game VERY well. They will NOT be dumb enough to let others play it once they’ve come to office. They will step on you like cockroaches.

        Take my advice. Lose weight, train your body for the rigors for war and then prepare for the worst. Don’t put all your eggs in the peaceful-resistance basket.

        • U R IntheVillage September 4, 2021 at 12:44 pm #

          Speaking completely in the abstract, of course, history suggests that authoritarian regimes do not fall until the agents of state security (i.e., the military, the police) rebel against the regime. In some hypothetical country where leftist authoritarians had taken over the government, for example, they may be aware of this and undertake to root out all the members of the state security apparatus who might be sympathetic to a movement that might be considered “restorationist,” for example. A return to some prior conventions.

          In such a hypothetical country with a hypothetical leftist authoritarian government, the public at large going kinetic early may simply be a path to martyrdom. The key to success in such a hypothetical country might be an effort to educate the young, especially those who enlisted themselves in the state security apparatus out of patriotic support for the atmosphere of freedom that existed prior to the leftist takeover, for example.

          In such a hypothetical circumstance, targeted words and education may have to most “bang for the buck.” In other words, using a term whose meaning has been perverted, get the young people to “wake the fuck up.”

          Speaking hypothetically.

    Coiled and Rattling is an apt description of how I feel. The low intensity rage that is currently hardening the muscles around my neck and back, that is taking the smile from my face and squinting my eyes is leaping out of my mouth, at times, unexpectedly.

    One more awkward, public moment from me will likely change my relationship with my employer. The Woke 500 don’t like to be called liars in public, they don’t like their brand image tarnished by the truth that their communications are purposefully crafted lies designed to rape your mind. The lies, the censorship and the management of dissenting opinions has me coiled. The threats of retaliation has me rattling.

They’ve told the city folk folk to stock up on food, as there’ll be little coming if they hold firm. The hope, I’m sure, will be to bring the masses out of there homes and onto the street to create more havoc. How will the tyrants running the country respond? Are the Aussies a test case for how far the people can be pushed before a true, lasting rebellion erupts? After all, unlike the US, they foolishly gave up their guns. And, could the CCP be behind it?

          That was ill-conceived and became a disappointing non-event. Not wishing to inconvenience regular people, they left a lane open. If they try it again, they should just leave their trucks after removing a small, single part in the hydraulics, putting it in their pockets and leaving. There’s no way the authorities could get replacements in the necessary numbers, and the wheels won’t turn without it. It wouldn’t be moved after that by anything short of a crane.

Last night they were completely out of stock of all forms of ground beef, for the first time ever.

            You can win hostile work environment cases or settle for $$ but you have to take copious notes. That’s how I won mine. Document everything. Also, you have to go to HR (if you have one) and then document it when they do nothing as they usually don’t.

          • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:34 pm #

            “hostile work environment” I knew a native American guy who was fired by his tribe from a classical environment like this. The tribal council, his supervisors and the HR department were all cousins of his, but that made no difference. What did make a difference were the copious notes he had been toking for months to document his mistreatment. He sued his employer in tribal court and won a pretty good sized settlement, no easy task under those circumstances.

      Anybody who knows his work saw this coming WAY more than 100 months ago.

      It is more engineered than the randomness he foresaw and the breakdown will result in Techno Feudal Serfdom rather than Willoughby but, credit where credit is due:

      Mr K was on the leading edge of social commentators warning, “If sonething cannot go on forever, it will stop.”

      That seems obvious now as, 1 by 1, we are each and all dragged into this new Reality. Mr K was “a lone voice in the wilderness” when he first wrote of the ramifications of Peak Oil.

      • JohnAZ September 3, 2021 at 12:42 pm #

        JHK stated in 2005 that Peak Oil would be the end of the standard of living in the developed world.

        Nothing has changed.

        The creeping up of the cost of oil and its energy constituents is slowly tearing down the West. We are teetering right now as fracking as a fill in for standard drilling is starting to show the financial weaknesses that are attached to it. Covid is hiding the effects right now, but wait until folks have had enough of staying at home.

        Now add on fresh water to the mix, and the formula for disaster is already in place. Maybe the folks in the NE can filter out all the sewage that is in the rivers they used to call streets. How is California and the SW going to manufacture water to fill up Lake Mead. Pinal County, an agricultural area south of Phoenix is facing shutting down with ordered reductions of the Central Arizona Project irrigation canal. This year, a pretty good monsoon helped some but we need lots more where that came from. Hurricane Nora just ran right over the top of us with no results here. Bummer.

        Anyway, things are going to get worse and quickly now. The cause? Immigration!! This country is having a tough time servicing its population with resources now. Adding a few million more with no more resources is the formula for disaster.

        The idiots in DC, with their adequate water and oil pipeline access, do not understand any of this. Their immigration/ votes machine will just continue.

        The Democratic Party and the Leftist imbeciles it represents are the number one enemy of this country, not China, Russia or the Taliban.

        AOC is trying to blame the deaths of 12 folks in the NE on Joe Manchin this morning because he will not vote for the Liberal $3.2 trillion boondoggle. Just think, stop the immigration and the increased money outflow is not needed.

            “I meant the East Coast by this.” So did I. Water supply for most is conditional on the electric grid. If the water pressure drops, a boil water order usually follows. Kind of hard to boil water for most people if the grid is down. Chemicals to make the water safe are brought to the water departments by truck. Gasoline is doesn’t get to your local service station by pipeline, but is brought by truck. Something similar applies to local food stores. The nationwide grid continues to be vulnerable to sabotage, a known vulnerability for many decades. As little as possible has been done to deal with this, and many institutions will share the blame. After I discussed this with a relative, she had a automatic natural gas powered generator installed in her back yard. As long as the natural gas continues to flow, she will have lights, refrigeration, A/C and air cleaning as needed. This cost her a lot of aggravation and about $20,000. It has already proved useful for her with horrible air quality and extremely hot summer weather where she lives.

            All good ideas. I am sure I will be doing numerous different sorts of jobs if I don’t end up working for some company.

            I was in IT for 15 years setting up systems for law firms, and ran the document management system, then I became a web designer working for myself for years and then as the webmaster for a nonprofit. That also included doing flash animation and videos. I’m also a project manager, and I know and use or have used over 1000 different applications (I’ve been on computers since they were invented; starting with word processors). I am also a photographer and videographer. And I have a university degree. But, we’ll see how far even all that gets me.

            I’m sure you can get freelance work.

            There are organizations out there with jobs lists, and I am sure that there are some good ones in the IT sector and legal sector.

            Everyone needs websites these days!

            An organization that I am in and that is not too expensive and has a pretty good jobs list is the EFA: Editorial Freelancers Association.

            https://www.the-efa.org/

            They also have a discussion email list and many people there are helpful.

            You can create a detailed profile, which I am sure is a walk in the park for you.

    Right on, Jim! What a hilarious and wonderful treasure of writing today. Combative, too! I’m not going to have to up my donation again am I?

    How do we negotiate the minefields though when people start running around even crazier than they are already because they don’t understand and aren’t able to understand this entropic predicament?

    Most of us here ‘get it’ but you’re fortunate to be able to draw on a global audience of smart people (I will exclude myself from that category). I still can’t think of many people in my life that would be interested in trying to understand any of this stuff.

    I keep going back to the album cover of Roger Waters’ album Amused to Death. A monkey watching TV. Seems rather apt right now.

      I’ve been following Jim for a couple years now, and I’m now at the point where I consider him one of the best voices out there. I’m a recovering Democrat, and the pro-Trump rhetoric on here deterred me from joining. But the powers that be are all so batshit crazy it’s useless polishing a political nametag. The long emergency is what I’m concerned with, as I have been since all the idols to the technocracy blotted out the sun. Carving out a plot of sanity amidst the storm-mongers is my endgame- Jim has been foundational in this venture. Through the ingenious WMBH series and the all-too-sane rhetoric of the nonfiction, this world is making a little more sense. Thanks, Jim.

      • Slugoon September 3, 2021 at 9:21 am #

        Welcome, aske87. I don’t see an awful lot of pro-Trump propaganda here myself. More just defending him in the face of the alternatives, for reasons that are becoming painfully obvious.

        I’ve always liked Trump. He doesn’t talk or act like a politician. He made a few speeches during his presidency that I thought were incredibly powerful and moved me actually. I could never understand and still don’t what he did that was so bad.

        Sounds like you’ll feel at home here.

        • benr September 3, 2021 at 9:59 am #

          Yes its not really about Trump prior to running for President I actually thought he was funny but kind of a real dick.

          Then he ran and said a lot of the things that I think and thought woah this guy actually gets it.
          Now nine months on the job market has tanked everywhere except federal contracts.
          My indeed feed was 300 jobs a week minimum under Trump now under the corpse its down to under twenty.
          Its the economy stupid never rang more true.

          Joe Biden is a disaster in every metric one could measure.

          • Night Owl September 3, 2021 at 10:34 am #

            Yep. I was not a fan of the guy initially, but then I started digging around to see who was backing who over at Open Secrets and a few other sites.

            Then I started listening to his policy proposals, and it became clear that Trump was the guy most independents had been calling for for decades. Someone who could make it as a mainstream politician, but take a sensible approach to foreign, monetary, and manufacturing-related policy.

            The manner in which the PTB went after him was like nothing seen in American history. He was the real deal. Unfortunately, the United States is a media driven culture, and the superficial is about all that matters.

            Trump was the anti-swamp creature this country needed. When he walked down the escalator I was optimistic about America for the first time since Reagan. He was a anti Deep State businessman who explained what was wrong, why the government was sucking the people of America dry. What socialism was going to do to the people, destroy their spirit.

            I believe he believed he could have a positive impact on the whole mess in DC. He had some, but the machine beat him down from day one. The people of the country turned on him in 2018 and that forecast the debacle of his last year and a half.

            The last chance is gone.

          • pranah September 3, 2021 at 1:28 pm #

            Having read The Fourth Turning years ago, and us being in the Fourth Turning (those of which, in the USA, have historically ended in honking big hot shooting wars–WWII, the Civil War, the War for Independence), it looked like Trump was the Gray Champion who was to rise pretty much from nowhere to lead the nation during the throes of the endgame of the Fourth Turning. Spooky stuff. Since he was cheated out of his second term, we won’t have the benefit of the Gray Champion at the helm when we need him the absolute most.

          • pranah September 3, 2021 at 1:30 pm #

            …it looked _to me_ like Trump was the Gray Champion…

          • Anthea September 3, 2021 at 8:14 pm #

            I’ve never understood the disparagement of Trump’s manner, personality, or way of speaking, or the wayin which his quasi-defenders (including our host) found it obligatory to throw n a little slur here and there about his supposed “buffoonery.” I always thought JHK did this because he was addressing a heavily Democratic audience which had to be thrown a bone once in awhile, lest they grow restive.

            Trump is admittedly a little inarticulate, but how long has it been since we’ve had a president who wasn’t wholly reliant on speech-writers or teleprompters? And who wants a president who sounds like the people on NPR? (Condescending and precious–and cursed with a private-school accent.) Trump talks as well as anyone else–and far better than, say, Obama, who was edging over into NPR territory in the way of unctuousness, and couldn’t talk at all without a teleprompter.

            Anyway, such attacks always seemed to me to be gratuitous, like other on all and sundry for various personal qualities.

            Karl Denniger has berated Trump from day one for various policy failures. E.g., addressing the US health care system was a top priority, if he had wanted to right the ship of state, and he backed down on this the day after he was elected.

            I am not much inclined to give Trump a pass on this either, but it may have been a, “You pick your battles,” type of thing. Leave it for when you have your chess pieces in place and thus some chance of at least a partial win.

            Trump in 2020-21 has been a great disappointment, with his vaccine advocacy. Denninger has also excoriated him for failing to take swift, decisive action about the theft of the election. In my view, he’s beaten.

            But it has become very clear over the past year or so that he–and we–are dealing people so monstrous that it buggers the imagination. I feel fairly certain that he was threatened with the death of his entire family, in probably the most unpleasant kinds of ways, along with his own death. In such a case, if it were me, I’d back down too.

          • Blackbird September 3, 2021 at 9:37 pm #

            Maybe the Biden is the Gray Champion we get… Kind of like a Tarot card inverted.

          • draupnir September 4, 2021 at 1:18 pm #

            Anthea, those were ad hominem attacks designed to denigrate and draw attention away from the substance of his words. I remember thinking early on that the poor man couldn’t get a word out of his mouth without the press pouncing on him. They hated him so much they were willing to diminish and belittle the very office of the President of the United States to get to him. I’ve never seen a POTUS treated with such disrespect. Now they can reap what they have sown. And they still had to cheat in such an egregious manner, that it is glaringly obvious to anyone who choses to look. I don’t need an audit to know the Biden Administration is illegitimate.

        I have for many years had a great contempt for goddamn goody-goodies. I think I acquired this during a ten-year sojourn in one of Kanas City’s snooty suburbs. Often when I called up one of the mothers of my daughers’ school friends, they would answer the phone in a little-girly voice–so perfect an imitation of a prepubescent girl that I once replied, “Honey, can I speak to your mother please?” This produced a roar of rage at the other end of the line. Mommy shaped-shifted into Godzilla so convincingly that I could almost see the fur stand up on the back of her neck.

        I have been sorely disappointed in my closer-in exurban neighbors’ submissiveness to the recently renewed mask order. At Walmart today I passed the lady greeter who was handing out masks just as a customer was complaining that she was letting people in without masks. So when I walked past her again (on my way back from getting a rotisserie chicken), she had grown more forceful. “They’ve mandated it,” she insisted. I said, “They can kiss my ass. ”

        I honestly think most of these people are submitting to the mask orders to show that they are good little boys and girls.

    James, I wonder on your writing process – phrases such as “like some short-timer Guatemalan generalissimo” – do you make notes of phrases that strike you and put them aside for some use days or weeks ahead? Or does most everything get written in a 2-3 days (or 1 day?) surge of inspiration? There are plenty of topical writers that can put out a cogent article a few times a week – but this many memorable lines, that seems pretty unusual to me.

    “Those parties dimly perceived surely think they can get away with anything now. There is no accountability, nor any memory of what it used to mean. Things just happen and unhappen, like in some raw, pre-conscious nasty-and-brutish animal kingdom, which is exactly what our country has become when you factor-in mass Woke lobotomization, meth and fentanyl addiction, social media mind-fuckery, and Covid hysteria. Klaus Schwab, you are taking this a little too far now, yes? It’s one thing to own nothing and be happy, but to remember nothing, too? That compliant surviving population of a half-billion serfs you wish to reserve to peel your grapes won’t even be able to carry out the simplest instructions. Something has gone very wrong with your Great Reset… if that’s what this is.”

    That is exactly their aim. The slave class will be ruled through fear. Who needs a memory, when there is only the here and now. The proclamations and rules change from day to day in the New Normal.

    Fear of losing it all will keep the serfs going, and the plan is to have them lose it all over time.

    There is so much information on this, and the info. is in many cases straight from the mouth of Herr Schwab and co. The “co.” being the largest banks and multi-nationals in the world. The DAVOS crew. Ever checked out who their partners are? Take a gander.

    Vax pass leads to Self Sovereign Identity pass, for which contracts that I have seen have been drawn up and signed in many European states.

    When the economy crashes, box stores and conglomerates own everything, including the real estate, and the people who survive the shots are put on UBI and granted the right to live at subsistence level so long as their passes are up to date. Until they keel over.

      Two generations from now the survivors of what was formerly called The Human Race will revere Bill Gates as a saint who is responsible for their life on a planet cleansed of it’s toxic population of eight billion human worthless eaters. Saint Gates was largely responsible for the stealth eugenics program that reduced the population to a sustainable two billion people in the most humane way possible. His gene alteration program disguised as a vaccine against a flu-like virus that had a 99.5% survival rate was successful beyond his wildest dreams. Once 60% of the breeding females were fully vaccinated before they discovered that they could no longer bear children the die was cast. Another 10% of the fully vaxed soon expired from “unexplained” blood clots, but reproductive failure of most of the white European members of the human species was the key feature that rid the planet of the voracious weed species that if left unchecked would have turned it into a lifeless desert.

      Now that the Human Operating System has been fully decoded, the Overseers are capable of managing their subjects so that the specter of overpopulation need never occur again.

        Bill Gates foisted MS Windows on the world, using every dirty trick in the book, on his way to becoming the richest scumsucker in the universe. He stole it from Apple, who stole it from HP and Xerox (or something like that). There were many other dirty tricks employed, before and after Windows — MS-DOS, Netscape vs Explorer, and so on. He is and always has been an apex predator.

          Correct about Windows and how it came to be.
          But one thing many do not know is there is a large group that will not allow MS or any other company to control their electronic devices.
          It is simple to prevent Windows and MacOS from sharing or leaking your personal data. If you know how to do this you will end up with an operating system and applications which ARE NOT controlled by anyone other than you and do not require an internet connection to use.
          This same group will not allow data or external control of their vehicles and can ensure the car is isolated from radio networks.
          Also easy to do.

          My experience is that for every hurdle put up by the oligarchy there is usually a simple way to avoid inclusion.
          If we all work to avoid the oligarchy then they have no impact on our lives and can be happily ignored.

          Once the leaders went full-metal-lawless the Real Adults just stopped complying with everything humanly possible. Its actually simple once you un-chain your brain from fear.

          Suggest everyone stop worrying and start finding ways to take your self far away from the oligarchy.

      I was wondering how hospitals, stores, schools, businesses, etc were going to fare, losing 30-50% of their employees, because of forced jabbing? Millions next week will be fired or walk off the job over that. And they are already complaining of being short-handed.

      Is that because UBI will come sweeping in to save the day? But only if you’re jabbed?

      • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:45 pm #

        “I was wondering”… See this clipping from cleveland.com 26 Aug 2021: “[Cleveland] Clinic CEO and president Dr. Tomislav Mihaljevic warned that hospitals are already understaffed and losing healthcare employees during a public health crisis could jeopardize the Clinic’s ability to provide care. “This is something that is on everybody’s mind,” Mihaljevic said.

        UH [universityhospitals.org] does not want to add to the region’s unemployment rate, said UH CEO Dr. Cliff Megerian.”

        Mary, I think the loss of hospital staff is an intended element of the Great Reset.

        If I could show you some of the documents I have edited that deal with online/digitized healthcare you would be shocked. They want the human element removed.

        They want a slave class on UBI, and they want population reduction. Life will again be nasty, brutish, and short — and highly controlled.

        And the post-industrial middle class was created by the ruling class to trample their fellow members of the working class, while kissing the ass of the ruling class.

      Hi, NO,

      Just watching session 68 now.

      Bernie, in Australia.

      This police state is also a form of collective punishment.

      Everyone is under total lockdown—in danger of being arrested and thrown into prison, also with major fines—until every last person is jabbed.

      And then? No guarantees. Indeed, highly unlikely that anything will change there even after the last holdout has been jabbed.

      How “infectious” is Australia? Is it the test penal colony of the future.

      I honestly don’t think this can come here to the USA, at least not to states where lots of people have fire arms. Fingers crossed. I dont know whether increasing fragmentation and collapse in the USA would embolden locals to take things into their own hands and prevent the Australian-style police state, or would weaken them and strengthen central military authorities. It sounds like the Aussie police are complete on board with the repression. LIke, they are just as clueless and out of it as Bernie describes the population as being.

      Certainly his take is a cautionary tale on the central importance of access to alternative news.

      I can only catch about 75% of what Bernie says. Is he from Baden Wuerttemberg? He seems to have that slightly adenoidal tone that I recall as the regional accent, with t’s spoken as d.

      Very, very scary.

      PS. Once again I notice Wolfgang having defective antennae as to when to shut up. Reiner stated clearly that there was someone from Australia waiting to speak, and it is almost midnight in AUS. But Wolfgang insisted on continuing, going over more detailed information—far too fast for it to be much use, but going on for at least another 10 minutes after he had been asked to cede the floor. Reiner should have just pulled the plug on him.

      N.O. Corona Ausschuss—

      The English “simultaneous” translation is a disaster

      I understand why RF might think this is a good idea for German listeners, but it wrecks the testimony of Susan Frost (also the Dutch fellow). And the German is not that good.

      Frost’s testimony is very important FOR AMERICANS!! They need to be able to hear her. Impossible to follow either the German or the English.

      I certainly hope the Ausschuss gets this up at Bitchute or somewhere in a plain English version. Then I could circulate it, also to some MDs on my college email list.

      As it I can’t do anything with it.

      • Sean Coleman September 4, 2021 at 7:18 pm #

        I agree. I need to look up Frost and Engel. The latter was talkkng about the measles vaccine, from memory.

      • Night Owl September 5, 2021 at 4:07 am #

        I am also not a fan of the real-time translation. I think they need to at least lower the volume of the source language.

        As for Bernie’s accent: I can understand him, but I can’t place the accent. At first I was not sure if he was a Muttersprachler, but he appears to be. Sounds unlike anyone I have ever encountered here though. That said, there are more accents and dialects than I can count, do IDK.

        I took it for a 2 week period during the time I traveled by Air and then drove back (2000 miles) in my final moving act to Florida. I had no side effects whatsoever and did not come down with Covid or anything else.

          Near diarrhea. Which is supposed to happen, so I was glad. Proved the stuff was real.

      Did not see human ivermectin listed, but they do sell animal version. I’ll demur.

      Interesting list of antibiotics, however. If we really are entering a long emergency (or simply working,our way through) a stockpile of those might be very useful, a long with a Physician’s Desk Reference in paper format.

      • Bob12065 September 3, 2021 at 10:39 am #

        I have 45 tablets of each. All pharma grade in blister packs. I took a couple of each a while back when it seemed like I might be coming down with a cold or covid. No problems. Like I said, I been dealing with these folks for years.

        • DrTomSchmidt September 3, 2021 at 11:54 am #

          Ok. I have blister packs and will preserve them for illness, taking one pill per 15kg of weight if needed. If I could get a lot more, I’d do prophylaxis.

          I had… severe digestive irregularities as a result. Which is a common side effect of real stuff. Do you have a way to check?

        • abbybwood September 3, 2021 at 1:42 pm #

          It seems when you search for Ivermectin it is only available by bolus or IV???

      • ThorsHammer September 3, 2021 at 12:28 pm #

        Dr Tom

        Ivermectin is FDA approved for treatment of roundworms, scabies, head lice, and any number of human ailments. Just find a doctor who isn’t a total Medical Fascist and have him write a prescription for you. 3mg human approved pills. Don’t take only one or two pills, but rather the correct dosage according to body weight which usually works out to 6 or 7 3mg pills. You’d have to take enough for a 1200# horse before you’d encounter the adverse effects the fear mongers are trying to manufacture.
        Or just take a Pfizer jab daily for a month if you are a fan of adverse affects.

        My doctor was a adamant vaxhead until he came down with COVD a few weeks ago. He took Ivermectin for three days and fully recovered. (I like to think it was because of all the double blind studies I had been feeding him) Prescribed it for his entire family, but didn’t tell the hospital consortium he works for. (He still has a job)

        • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:58 pm #

          “Just find a doctor who isn’t a total Medical Fascist ” You must also find a pharmacist willing to fill the doctor’s order. Pharmacists are not obligated to fill any prescription they disagree with. If a patient presents a prescription note splattered with Wite-out and with 2 different colors of ballpoint ink, don’t expect any pharmacist to fill it!

        • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:59 pm #

          “Prescribed it for his entire family, but didn’t tell the hospital consortium he works for. (He still has a job)” One can hope the dispensing pharmacy doesn’t spill the beans on his lack of faith in the system.

        • DrTomSchmidt September 3, 2021 at 5:05 pm #

          I have a number of pills already, and I have a Doctor Who wrote me a prescription. CVS filled it. It was very expensive however. Of course, less than going to the hospital with Covid.

          I took one round of seven pills because I was going to use the stuff prophylactically. It’s supposed to give you, digestive effects. It did, so I’m sure it’s real. But I’m gonna save the rest of my supply for either me, or a loved one who gets it. I will follow the protocol if that happens.

          I’ll see if I can refill the prescription I filled once. If not, I’m always looking for a good Indian pharmacy.

          • tully September 3, 2021 at 6:45 pm #

            Ziverdo is the company I ordered from May 30. They are in India, payment only by PayPal. Felt a little sketchy, but I wanted the stuff, so ordered 80 of the 12 mg pills for $100. Shipping was $30. The original confirmation said I would have the order in 30 days, and I did.

            The package left India June 2, and arrived at NYC customs June 10. It sat and sat; I thought they had lost it or had seized it. Nope-apparently customs routinely has a 3 week backlog..

            I took one pill weekly as soon as I got it, through last week. Taking a break for few weeks; will probably resume in Oct. At the 12 mg, one pill dosage no side effects at all.

            Before I got the pills, I ordered the apple flavor horse paste from Amazon. Twice. Just looked, and they still have it. I got 10 doses out of one tube. No side effects with the paste either. I assume people getting sick took the whole tube at once, or over a few days. Not sure how anyone could miss the instructions to adjust the dose based on the weight of the animal.

          • Anthea September 3, 2021 at 9:09 pm #

            I also got my Ivermectin from Ziverdo. https://www.ziverdokit.store/

          • pranah September 4, 2021 at 12:35 am #

            tully, Anthea–did you need a prescription to get the Ivermectin from Ziverdo? My doctor told me when I asked that she would not prescribe it for me if I got COVID because “it’s not standard of care.”

          • tully September 4, 2021 at 8:37 am #

            @pranah, no prescription is required to order from Ziverdo. In addition to ivermectin sold separately, they sell kits of IVM/zinc/doxy for use at start of confirmed infection. I skipped that one, as I have plenty of zinc, and keep oil of oregano capsules in the frig. The latter has antibiotic properties. I’ve not had antibiotics since I was in my thirties.

            I did opt to get the J&J vax in July, as I am in southern MO where delta took off in early June. I have no health issues, but I am over 60. After crunching the numbers, I opted to get the shot I also continue the supplement prophylaxis with zinc/D3/quercetin, and will resume the IVM before flu season starts.

            I really do not want to get this crud, whatever it is.

          • pranah September 4, 2021 at 4:38 pm #

            @tully–thank you so much for the info! I’ll check out Ziverdo. And good luck, I hope none of us get the crud.

      • tresho September 3, 2021 at 2:56 pm #

        Part of the “long emergency” becoming more apparent recently are the various supply chain disruptions popping up here & there. I take some basic meds for hypertension, cholesterol and prevention of platelets (can’t use ASA), and will probably take them for the rest of my life. These are low priced and widely used. I would like to get a stockpile of 2 to 3 years for these, to forestall getting cut off due to “long emergency” problems. Pharmacist & MD no help to me on this issue.

      All their ivermectin is for animals, just checked. I’m pretty sure we can get that here, still.

  8. observex September 3, 2021 at 9:12 am #

    The AMA release on not using Ivermectin is here: https://www.ama-assn.org/press-center/press-releases/ama-apha-ashp-statement-ending-use-ivermectin-treat-covid-19. It ends with this paragraph:

    “Patients are encouraged to talk to their physicians, pharmacists, and other prescribers about currently available therapies authorized or approved for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19. The most effective ways to limit the spread of COVID-19 are to get vaccinated, wear a face mask, stay at least six feet from others in public places, wash hands frequently, and avoid large crowds of people. Our organizations strongly urge eligible unvaccinated individuals to get vaccinated.”

    These sentences are full of nonsense and contradiction. The “six feet” idea is different than the WHO recommendation of 1 meter (about 3 feet). And 6 feet or whatever, well, let’s magically ignore it on an airplane, except when waiting to get and off the plane, then six feet matters again. The washing hands idea, while polite, is nearly meaningless when the CDC itself observed almost no chance of an airborne virus being spread by touching. The vaxx, as we’ve seen, apparently doesn’t do much to stop spread anymore in Israel and other places.

    Meanwhile, the CDC won’t put a real suggestion like losing weight in its list of recommendations, which would save many more lives than wiping down your seat on the airplane.

      Ivermectin

      Nobel Prize winning medicine that was responsible for eradicating the disease of River Blindness which formerly plagued millions of inhabitants in equatorial Africa.

      Taken for decades by millions of people with virtually no adverse effects.

      And then along came the COVID virus. Inhabitants of Equatorial Africa contacted the virus at 1/7the rate of those in Mediterranean Africa and the “advanced” countries of Europe and the US.

      Nothing to see here. Move along. And by all means strip any doctor who mentions Ivermectin of his medical license and send him to prison.

      Fascism is the final stage of Capitalism, and Orwellian-ism is the final stage of Fascism.

      • Yohannon September 3, 2021 at 11:53 am #

        No, technically it’s Plutocracy or the rule of the rich. Fascism is the Government controlling the rich. The opposite. The two sphere can’t be kept separate in the modern industrial state. But it matter who leads. Obviously faceless, unelected, corporate executives should not be ruling.

        Fascism – the European name for real nationalism – is the answer not the problem.

        • ThorsHammer September 3, 2021 at 1:24 pm #

          Actually according to Mussolini, “Fascism is the merger of the Corporation and the State”. No mention of who Rules, but it’s historically almost always the Rich.

          No question of where the US is on the scale.

          • Yohannon September 3, 2021 at 1:42 pm #

            So the Corporations can do anything for profit – even against the needs and best interests of the State and the People as per the Capitalist ethos of profit as all in all?

            I’m with Yo on this one.

            Gotta go to the source. Mussolini was the creator of fascism and according to Il Duce under a fascist system, the state is supreme. Everyone from individual to corporation to bank serves the state. And the state exalts the nation.

            Put banks and corporations (and the rich individuals who control them) on top and you’ve got a plutocracy. And the plutocrats sell out the nation. That’s us.

        • Night Owl September 3, 2021 at 2:57 pm #

          I would say that we are in the midst of morphing from a state of inverted totalitarianism, where faceless corporations rule the roost and provide the illusion of democracy through controlled elections, to something much more like global feudalism.

            My heartfelt thanks to both you and this blog’s magnificent host.

            I found this at coldfury.com:

            “People in South Australia will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation. The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person. “We don’t tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes,” Premier Steven Marshall explained. ”

          • tully September 3, 2021 at 6:55 pm #

            @Alzaebo, that app or one similar is used by local county courts to keep tabs on people out on bond awaiting trial. The person awaiting trial has to pay the monthly fee for service; think it’s a couple hundred bucks.
            And S. Australia is mandating this for everyone?

          • Night Owl September 4, 2021 at 2:57 pm #

            Yeah, Alzaebo — I saw that the other day.

            Seems the criminals are trial balloning what they plan for Europe and the States. They know that doing this stuff is much easier on an island that gets little coverage from the corporate media.

          MD,
          I am not presenting a false argument. Remove the Fed and the economy, the government, and most of our cherished institutions will collapse overnight. Immediate civil war, and millions would die. The Fed, good or bad, is the lynchpin of our current civilization. In the circumstances we find ourselves, it is our only immediate option.

          Replace it with something? Sure…your argument?

        Would you take the advice of your local Zeta when he tells you his Fentanal is pure and good for you?

        So why should you take the advice of the AMA when they tell you that the second most prescribed medicine in the world will kill you?

        And that the cure for COVID is to wash your hands and stick your head up your ass? Or take Tylenol until your lungs give out and you can be shipped to the hospital, and placed on a ventilator, so the hospital can collect their $39,000 bounty from you?

        Or listen to Pfizer when they tell you that having your immune system permanently altered so that it is only effective against the original Wuhan COVID instead of the mutations that any virus continually spawns is a smart policy? Or that if you have experienced COVID and thus acquired immunity that is 13 times more effective than the Pfizer” vaccine” and lasts far longer you should get vaccinated anyway? In order to get a fake vaccine passport and have a few of the privileges of citizenship returned to you? Or that having booster shots every 6 months is a solution to a virus that has become endemic in the human population? Or that regularly ramping up the many danger points for long term adverse reactions is good policy?

        When you consider that the average IQ of policy makers is under 80 and half of them are below that it suddenly becomes understandable why they are so frantically trying to get everybody shot before the fraud collapses of its own weight..

            “While they are tasking their children with educational goals” Simply gaining basic literacy in Mandarin is a huge feat for anyone. It helps to start young. I took 3 semesters of college level Mandarin starting when I was 66, simply because things Chinese always fascinated me, and the $ outlay was trivial. The was by far the hardest college course I ever took, and it was watered down compared to the textbook we used.

      Bob – as I recall, the Chinese vaccines (which they are also exporting in their part of the world) are traditional vaccines, not mRNA and similar.

        Green, the Chinese had their conventional vaccine ready in a similar timeframe as the mRNA type. How can that be? We were told it takes much longer to do the “deactivated virus protein vaxx” compared to the mRNA type.

        Were the Chinese prepared ahead of time?? Hmm.. makes one wonder. Does that fit into a planned release, biowarfare scenario? I’m just pondering…

    JHK – There is no accountability, nor any memory of what it used to mean. Things just happen and unhappen, like in some raw, pre-conscious nasty-and-brutish animal kingdom, which is exactly what our country has become when you factor-in mass Woke lobotomization, meth and fentanyl addiction, social media mind-fuckery, and Covid hysteria.

    Good lord, ain’t that the truth.

    Though I am curious to see whether accountability comes back into play next week when emergency unemployment bennies end, combined with the eviction moratorium being lifted weeks later.

    Many will become accountable again, and quick.

    Or it will get ugly so fast that the government will roll in UBI stat…effectively shoveling the concept of accountability into the growing mass grave of agreed-upon social structure that has seemed to hold for decades, if not centuries…

    • SouthernYankee September 3, 2021 at 10:01 am #

      Mango, I tend to think that Accountability (at least in Housing) is still not in the offing for the following reason:

      Some (many) believe that the Covid virus was created so that the vaccine could be justified and forced and. Likewise, I see that the eviction moratorium is a play put into motion to implode the “mom and pop” owners (or larger ones too) in the rental industry. Then, after they default on the mortgages on their rental investments, which default of course was orchestrated, those properties then get sold to the hedge funds and international investors in a fire sale.

      And just like that you have socialized housing for all. Same thing for owners of single family homes like us.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder September 3, 2021 at 10:08 am #

        Agree. But what happens when two or three million households get turned out into the streets?

        What landlord would take on a tenant who didn’t pay their rent for 18 months and got booted?

        Not everyone can move back in wih mom and dad.

        Of course, they should have paid their bills this whole time, as is the prime law of modern life…but fear and (mostly) anger will abound regardless.

        • SouthernYankee September 3, 2021 at 10:18 am #

          And they supported the tenants for a time, but not the landlords, thus ruining the latter. Now they’re going for the tenants. With a flurry of rights and lefts, they driving us back into the corner.

        • Not_GeorgeT September 4, 2021 at 7:16 am #

          “But what happens when two or three million households get turned out into the streets?” It’s a good question.

          Consider the number, this is households, which usually means a few people per household.

          What if they refuse to leave? Add a minimum of 4 months to the 18 just to get an eviction case in front of a judge. Judges don’t want to toss people out into the street. So maybe it goes to mediation. A deal of some sort is struck.

          At this point the agreement probably lasts a couple of months. Some live up to it and the case “goes away” (not talking rent here, gets too deep into the weeds).

          Some can’t make the deal work (let’s suspend motive, again it goes too deep).

          Back to court 2 – 4 months later.

          Now it’s somewhere north of 2 years. maybe it does a “wash, rinse, repeat” and moves out another 2 – 4 months.

          With that number of households, with an eventual eviction, how many sheriff’s deputies will it take to put the belongings literally out on the street?

          Or maybe it’s bank owned property, as in the mortgage payments stopped being made for whatever reason and either the owner walked away or the tenant in a rental goes through the eviction process.

          On the way out, they strip all the copper plumbing (check the price of copper) out of the house/building and sell it.

          Now the structure is unusable until the plumbing etc is reinstalled, likely with a lot of pvc pipes. Unlivable, and any buyer will be factoring in the cost of re-doing the plumbing.

          After ’08 some banks suspended the mortgage payments and let people stay just to keep the property occupied. Thus rent-free living.

          The situation is much worse now because “the government” has its heavy hand in the mix.

          and this started with covid, covid, covid

          Got a bridge to nowhere up for sale, any buyers?

She told one of them they had to move out so she could move in as she was going to lose her home since she was behind on payments due to their nonpayment. The tenant expressed sympathy but refused to move until evicted.

    In today’s news:

    (Kitco News) – The gold market is pushing significantly higher, following a significant miss in the U.S. labor market with fewer jobs created in August.

    Friday, the U.S. Labor Department said that 235,000 jobs were created last month. The data was weaker than expected as consensus forecasts called for jobs gains of 720,000.

    That’s an ENORMOUS miss. Or was it wishful thining? Maybe it was deliberate mis-projection to keep the markets “irrationally exuberant” like old Magoo once said

    Very much appreciate JHK’s last two sentences as well. A growing vibe throughout the mind-collective.

    At some point they will have simply pushed too far. They are already doing it, and way too fast. It’s as if the proverbial (or literal) Rothschilds and Rockefellers of today think they’re smarter than their patient ancestors who recognized that mass societal shift takes generations of planning and slow rollout…or it results in mass chaos, with them ending up becoming “publicly accountable by mob”.

    Perhaps mass chaos is what they want, for some reason. No more nudging…push, push, push is the order of the day. We shall see what they are capable of. They have immeasurable resources and power. But also they are, after all, merely humans. Perhaps they don’t believe that to be true anymore…

    The Market Ticker Guy discusses the missing piece of the puzzle- why the hospitals still refuse you any treatment unless you are at death’s door:

    Oh boy…..

    You want to know why, if you get Covid-19, the doctor and hospital won’t prescribe and use anything until you’re choking — and then only Dexamethasone, Remdesivir (which has failed twice in random controlled trials, including a VERY LARGE one, and is dangerous enough, on the data, that I’d never take it personally), oxygen, and ultimately a ventilator?

    Here’s the reason directly from the government itself on an official government web page:

    https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=243448

    How is this not attempted murder? It’s premeditated.

    • DrTomSchmidt September 3, 2021 at 10:11 am #

      Yeah, that was really the last straw for me. I can forgive a scam to get people to take vaccines they don’t need (especially Covid recovered) to make profits for Pfizer, like they did with Lipitor. But that article is a whole new level of evil. Unbelievable. Unforgivable.

      • Yohannon September 3, 2021 at 12:46 pm #

        You can? Really? You still don’t think the vaccines are deadly? In the long term if not the short? And obviously in terms of social control and dehumanization?

        • DrTomSchmidt September 3, 2021 at 5:11 pm #

          I’m not sure they knew how deadly they were. I think they figured on two things: high price, and waning efficacy, so the vaxx would be like a subscription model for life,like insulin. We know they knew about waning efficacy because they drove the antibody level so high, to protect for long enough in the trial.

          That’s a familiar scam like the one they ran with Lipitor, where most people weren’t helped, and only slightly hurt, by it. Instead, they made a new Vioxx. It’s the most deadly vaccine in VAERS, by far. But I do think they started out as greedy scammers, not intentional killers like the hospital people.

      What did people think he meant?

      I saw the genocide back in April 2020 when they put the infected in the nursing homes, knowing it would kill a lot of those people and it did. Since then, they just get more and more creative about how they kill us.

          She didn’t say “covid infected”, RL. Clearly Mary doesn’t deny that in the real world people can come down with a bad cold/flu/pneumonia, RL, and I’m sure you’re aware that the list of ‘covid’ symptoms are identical to a bad cold/flu/pneumonia.

          And that when people are sick they probably shouldn’t go visit grandma in the nursing home until they’re feeling better. Common knowledge, no?

          What kind of moron would deliberately send large numbers of sick people to the old folks homes? Well, we know of a few. And I hope they can’t sleep at night.

    • abbybwood September 3, 2021 at 2:10 pm #

      Agree.

      And because they are medical doctors and know how to read and study and use email and the phone they should all KNOW the current treatment modalities for EARLY use like monochromal antibodies (can only be given in ER or urgent care. Once an in-patient they can’t be given!), Ivermectin, Vitamin C oral or IV, Zinc, D3, steroids, Fluvoxamine etc.

      Because the CDC and AMA refuses to admit these early protocols save lives and reduce suffering they are ALL causing harm. This is medical malpractice on a national scale and not accidental. They are knowingly and deliberately committing malpractice with no fear of liability.

      Since the jabs have already killed 30,000 total EU/American and considering the hundreds of thousands of severe adverse reactions AND considering the vaccines do NOT work, the “experiment” should be stopped!

      In the past when 50 people died from experimental jabs they STOPPED administering them! And again there is no liability for the damages they are causing!

      It is beyond sinister and malpractice for the AMA and CDC to continue this deadly charade.

      And now Fauci is pushing for babies and young children to get jabbed!

      We have zero leadership on this in Congress and zero leadership in medicine (save a few fine doctors like Kory and McCullough etc. who are being censored and slandered).

      Something extremely sinister is afoot.

      • Hereward the Woke September 3, 2021 at 2:40 pm #

      • tresho September 3, 2021 at 3:47 pm #

        “monochromal antibodies (can only be given in ER or urgent care.” Not nearly true. Google “monoclonal antibody” “infusion center” “treatment center” . I was going to include “https://protect-public.hhs.gov/pages/therapeutics-distribution” but this HHS sponsored site is completely useless at the moment.

        • abbybwood September 3, 2021 at 10:53 pm #

          My mistake on the spelling. Thanks.

          Dr. Peter McCullough recently said that the monoclonal antibodies will NOT be administered once an in-patient. Only through outpatient clinics etc.

    • Sean Coleman September 4, 2021 at 7:16 pm #

      Dr BryanArdis says that the use of Rendesivir was mandatory in the US for (from memory) most of 2020. Perhaps it is the same thing Market-Ticker is talking about (you are only indeminfied if you use it and other specified treatements) or a separate, complementary, mechanism. He says that the CDC’s information about Rendseivir links (or linked, if the links have since been taken down) to two studies which showd that the drug was very dangerous and indeed had to be withdrawn from one of the two studies because of this.

      This is one of the odd things about it, that they did not know what they were linking to (but Fauci definitely knew) and did not care (hubris), or they did know but did not care (what difference would it make if the media said nothing?), or it was done deliberately. The death rate from the drug was very high in the test and was was refelced, says Ardis, in the mortality rates reported for ‘Covid’.

      So, criminal negligence at teh very least and premeditated murder at the most.

      And why had not the doctors checked it out before prescribing?

      I mentioned this before here as well as the prescription, under the WHO’s ‘Recovery’ study in the early months of 2020 of HCQ at several times the lethal dose. Again, the question was asked (by Dr Wolfgang Wodarg) whether this was deliberate or or not.

      I have been listening again to David Martin’s interview in Sutzung 60 of the Corona Ausschuss a few weeks ago. It mus be six or seven times now, trying to work out what its implications are (he condensed a lot into a short space of time). Covid was deliberately created by the CDC and its allies, whether as a possible vehicle for a HIV vaccine (by the way, there is no evidence that HIV causes AIDS, nor is there any convincing evidence that the disease even exists) or as a boilogical weapon. The big question here, again, is whether the vaccines are dsigned deliberately to injure or kill or whether it is just wilful negligence.

      Finally, I was also looking at the testimony of Dr (Prof?) Boyle (forgot first hname) who has been studying the subject since 1983. (Sitzung 42 or thereabouts.) He defended an Army doctor who refused to administer vaccines against anthrax and botulism in the First Gulf War about thirty years ago. She was acquitted, after spending 8 months in a military gaol.

      Boyle said that 500,000 servicemen were vaccinated. Of these, 11,000 died and 100,000 were”disabled”.

      He says this ration would be a “floor” for the ‘Covid’ vaccines. I think he means that this would be the least that will happen.

      The evidnece is moutning that this is deliberate murder.

    Here’s an interesting note, in an article from the South China Morning Post on Best Korea’s declining to accept complementary vaccines from other countries:

    “Pyongyang earlier refused offers of the AstraZeneca vaccine because of concerns over rare side-effects, a South Korean think-tank affiliated with Seoul’s spy agency revealed in July. And Russia’s foreign ministry said that same month that Moscow had repeatedly offered to supply its home-grown vaccines. Kim’s regime has yet to give any indication it has accepted its Cold War ally’s help.”

    “…rare side-effects…” sounds pretty innocent, until it sinks in. I wonder whether the masses will ever figure out they’re being hustled.

    Maybe it’s being 11 time zones away that gives me a soberer perspective on this sinister (and dangerous) pantomime. All of my otherwise-intelligent contacts, friends and counterparts seem to have fallen for the Party Line, hook and sinker.

    Not only that – when I innocently inform that I have had my two shots of Sinovac, a “true vaccine”, they tend to come unhinged. “But Science”. “Only 50% protection”. Urping back at me all the standard propaganda they’ve been fed.

    What the devil ever happened to CRITICAL THINKING? Gone with the wind.

            I did. And I would again. I had no reaction to it. I do not believe much of the outlandish press involving the vaxx, but acknowledge that the long term effects are unknown. I will not get the booster until the real need for it is established. The effects of the vaxx on the immune response is largely conjecture from individuals with suspicious agendas.

            My post was questioning the fear factor. Last year you would think the world was coming to an end especially for folks older than 65. Death rates up to 20%.

      It doesn’t even matter to me how dangerous the vaccine actually is (certainly more so than a vaccine should be, and less effective)… I won’t take it first and foremost because just don’t want it. Freedom. Same reason never took the pushed flu shots. The PUSHING is the MAIN problem.

    “Future Legend”

    And in the death
    As the last few corpses lay rotting on the slimy thoroughfare
    The shutters lifted an inch in temperance building,
    high on Poacher’s Hill
    And red mutant eyes gazed down on Hunger City
    No more big wheels
    Fleas the size of rats sucked on rats the size of cats
    And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes
    Coveting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers
    Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Love-Me Avenue
    Ripping and re-wrapping mink and shiny silver fox, now legwarmers
    Family badge of sapphire and cracked emerald
    Any day now, the year of the Diamond Dogs
    “This ain’t rock and roll! This is genocide!”

    – David Bowie (Diamond Dogs)

    Excellent article today, James!

    I see all of this coming to a tipping point soon. I am looking at losing my job, and so are many people I love. My bestie from high school says she will probably be escorted from her job as an executive secretary and teacher at the high school where she’s worked for 20 years, just 2 years shy of her retirement, because she is refusing vaxxing and testing. Her daughter, a nurse, is also going to leave her job. Another bestie’s daughter, also a health professional, has left her job.

    The friend who works at the school says that the lunch ladies and the bus drivers also refuse the jab. 80% of the kids that attend the high school take the bus. And she said they are already short staffed. I don’t know how much Covid19 money Pritzker has thrown at the school (she’s in Illinois) but you can’t just miraculously make people appear who know how to do the job, even if you throw money at the problem.

    If they are NOT being coerced with Covid19 funds, then why would any institution do this? It’s insane.

    Also a Twitter friend reports that the private corporation for whom she’s working is giving them a deadline to vaxx, and there will be NO exceptions, even for the online-only workers. So we see clearly it is not about anyone’s health. I hope a lot of workers walk off the job. I hope the corporation suffers financially.

    The only answer now is resistance. Otherwise we get vaccine passports, digital money that can be turned off if we try to buy the ‘wrong’ thing. No more donuts for you, fatty! Eat your bug sammich.

    In any case, things are coming to a head and it will not be pleasant.

    To all others out there who resist the attempt of the state to use you as a lab rat, I salute you.

    • Mountain gal September 3, 2021 at 2:28 pm #

      I think people need to make their employer fire them for refusing the vax- then they will be poised to be able to sue them.

      • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 3:43 pm #

        I am debating that with myself. If they fire me, could that affect my pension? I don’t know. I have to figure it all out. I have maybe a month.

        • tresho September 3, 2021 at 4:02 pm #

          “If they fire me, could that affect my pension?” Your pension is probably payable only in fiat currency, so its value could zero out with any major currency crisis.

          • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 7:24 pm #

            Agree. I’m going to cash it in.

        • observex September 3, 2021 at 8:54 pm #

          If your employer has a written policy to vax, and you do not, that is a firing “for cause” in many states. So one starting point is looking for whether your pension has a “for cause” or other distinction based on reason for termination. If your pension has real value – maybe spend a few hundred dollars for an employment lawyer to look at it so you make an informed decision.
          I’m sorry your put to such a decision.

      Mary, my heart bleed for you. What situation to be in! We keep on thinking we’ll wake up and find it’s all been a terrible nightmare. All I can say is that, from the masses of videos I’ve been watching from highly qualified docs about the jab, is that NOTHING is worse getting it. I’m happy to lose work, never fly again, never hear Sibelius in concert, if I don’t have to take this jab. I hope you can hang on till sanity prevails!

      • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 3:44 pm #

        I can hang on. There is no way in hell I get that jab. I’m with you. Nothing is worse. Also, if we cave, then that’s it. They will go onto the next thing and it will never end. At least people like me who are willing to stand up will slow things down a tad. We’ll see. Depends on how many there are. I was very heartened hearing so many people I know are walking out rather than succumbing. They know that health is everything.

          We’re told more than 120,000 were evacuated from Afghanistan. Woohoo! Awesome! But now we’re also told that thousands of SIV holders were left behind. So, who are all those “refugees” we just spewed all around Western Civilization?

        Only two conditions:

        1- They pay me $50,000 in cash.
        2- I am allowed to perform my own injection after ejaculating the killer shot onto the floor and carefully sterilizing the needle.

          Not sure that is a proper use of the word “ejaculating”, but the visual was amusing.

      Re: people being forced to vaxx or be fired–Greg Hunter, in his USAWatchdog Friday News Wrapup today, talks about a hospital in North Carolina (his home state) where a great many staff claimed religious objections–for example, you state you’re a Christian, you’re against abortion, and you won’t let them inject you with baby body parts. These staff people didn’t have to take the jab. He said “they can’t question you, they have to give it to you.” Maybe YMMV in your home state, but it’d be worth a try!

      I enjoy Greg, most of the time. Today he was in rare form, absolutely raging at the doctors who won’t prescribe Ivermectin because they don’t want to lose their jobs. Worth watching just for that, IMO.

    In the near future publicly-shared opinions such as today’s will result in non-personing. Forget the knock on the door at 4AM (well not a knock so much as a battering ram). Instead, a simple reset of your bank account similar to Chase canceling Flynn’s credit card. You will have no money and you will not be happy.

    This capability has been in place for a long time, at least since 2005 when, in the course of a death-induced implosion of a small business in which I had a stake, the paycheck I deposited on the first of the month simply vanished the day the first lawsuit was filed.

      My friend and I just stared at each other in shock and she then made us go out the front door and walk around to the back because we were not jabbed.

    Pinworms? What a blast from the past. I hate to speak of it but this was seventy years ago. Yes, at least twice the dreaded worms swept through the family. One person got it and everyone had to be dosed by a vile, red liquid that curdled your insides. It was so bad, I would dream about having to take it until the next dose. There was also a daily orgy of all the bedding and clothing being washed in hot water. It was awful. Sometimes, the “good old days” were not so good.

      Revolting story.

      You have to wonder how often this goes on. When I worked at a mental health unit in the ’80s, we had a chronically mentally ill client who said she had sex with her landlord in lieu of rent. I don’t know how willing she really was, but she seemed unhappy about the arrangement.
      The landlord was known to us–he rented to a lot of the community’s chronically mentally ill–and he was a disgusting little gnome, so I didn’t doubt the client. And anyway, even if she was willing, it was still gross taking advantage of a mentally ill person, IMO.

    Some words from another man who saw it coming:

    Huxley foresaw advanced forms of propaganda being used to hack the mind’s of the masses.

    ” [They will do it]… partly by these new techniques of propaganda.

    They will do it by bypassing the sort of rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious and his deeper emotions, and his physiology even, and so, making him actually love his slavery.

    I mean, I think, this is the danger that actually people may be, in some ways, happy under the new regime, but that they will be happy in situations where they oughtn’t to be happy.

    …We know, there is enough evidence now for us to be able, on the basis of this evidence and using certain amount of creative imagination, to foresee the kind of uses which could be made by people of bad will with these things and to attempt to forestall this… ~Aldous Huxley”

        I agree it should be read by everyone but here’s the problem — how many would understand it and be able to apply it to our present situation? He saw psychology would be used to manipulate and brainwash people into conformity.

        What has happened with the corona virus is a peek into the future. Scare tactics (150,000 positive cases today! ICUs overflowing!!!) with absolutely no perspective given (how many people even have symptoms), tearful family members, and absolutely NO opinions to challenge the official story.

        “In this ‘cancel culture’, now the ‘new normal’, civil liberties are suspended through algorithmic control. From stay home orders to lockdowns that destroyed small businesses, with the aid of social media conglomerates, the government has imposed their top down solutions on the public. As our economy has yet to recover from the pandemic crisis, changes in the system that could usher in the machine takeover of a society are now quietly taking place.”

      LOL….”I asked if that hymn in the Catholic Church … and they played, my mind is going blank now, what’s the song that is played when everybody is on the chair?” Biden said, appearing confused. “I can’t remember it. Anyway … I said, ‘What the hell’s going on here?’ I just had one little favor, just that they play ‘Eagle’s Wings.'”

      This guy is just one rambling old geezer with dementia, Alzheimer’s, dyslexia, etc. all at once! To think he is the leader of the “Free World” is quite sad and makes me feel ashamed to be an American.

    It is truly the height of absurdity for the ama to command that ivermectin not be used. This is especially pointed given the fact of the Japanese PM and Head of the Tokyo Medical Society, just a week ago, coming out and recommending the use of first line use of ivermectin (as tx for covid) and against the fake ‘vax.’ (Unless they want to argue that the Japanese are stupid; in fact their medical system and research systems are far and away superior to that of amerika, and world ranking show it.)

    The ama has always been an instrument of Big pharma, Big hospitals, and Big business in general. Well less than 50% of doctors are members (and those that are members tend to be nerds or nazis). I was a member for two years as a young resident doctor (way reduced fees), and it took me about a 1 1/2 year to see that they do NOT represent doctors in any form or fashion. In fact, they are completely against the practice of medicine in any form other than BIG CLINICs and BIG hospitals. They are an enemy of the independent practice of medicine. Their coming out aggressively against ivermectin should be a signal to thinking minds that ivermectin is clearly the solution to COVID, along with hydroxychloroquine.

    • SW September 3, 2021 at 12:56 pm #

      Interestingly, Japanese children are among the healthiest in the world and childhood vaccines are not required. The parents decide after consulting with the doctors, what and when (or if) their children will be vaccinated.

      Is there no group that speaks for the patient anymore?

        compare to White USA _ Canada?

        • neurodoc September 3, 2021 at 5:54 pm #

          Studies in the late 70s and 80s, before IQ tests were avoided and banned in some places due to political correction mania, showed AVERAGE Japanese IQs to be one SD (standard deviation, in the case of the Wechsler Scales, 15 points), above that of the American conglomerate (all races) Average IQ of 100. Take that for what its worth and read between the lines. Interestingly, the % of people in both the US and Japan with IQs above 115 are about the same. Again, read between the lines.

          • neurodoc September 3, 2021 at 5:55 pm #

      Just a note to mention that the plastic bottle of 60 I*er*ect*n tablets I ordered through my favorite on-line retailer came through, no questions asked – but every label was in the Chinese language, with nothing in English or Indonesian to indicate dosage, expiry date, whatever. Interesting. I guess the PRC sees a good market among the medical unbelievers overseas. Thus horse de-wormer is exported along with the Fentanyl.

    Welcome to COMPLEXITY

  40. D from OR September 3, 2021 at 12:01 pm #

    Regarding Jabs for Jobs. About 13 years ago I left a very cushy position at Oregon’s largest educational institution. I had come from the world of advertising/promotion/branding and was to perform the same at the college. Consensus from friends and family was I had hit the jackpot: government job, benefits, retirement.

    I could only hack it for about 3 years. It was awful. It was the people I had to work with mostly. See I was used to people being rewarded and promoted by their cleverness and creativity but in the atmosphere of a higher ed bureaucracy that was not the case. The rewards only came to those who held out the longest and as a result there was a rigidness and pettiness directed at anything “different.” I made my mark and then walked away without regret. The jackpot was an illusion.

    I think about my experience then a lot now because I know the type that is “in charge.” They are not dynamic or clever people. Original thought or approaches are tossed aside for compliance and homogeny. All the folks “on the spectrum” working for the Tech companies are the same. A generation has been taught how to follow not how to think.

    A timely example is how these “in charge” idiots mandate vaccines for health care workers and the intended consequence in Oregon is there is now a shortage of nurses. They just never thought it would happen because *they* don’t know how to think and besides they would never not follow an order from upon high.

    This is the blob of humanity we have to contend with as the SHTF and like Jim I have “had enough of the whole nauseating game.” And I say the same to these who consider themselves in charge, “Go ahead and push a little harder.” Let’s get this over with.

    • SW September 3, 2021 at 12:50 pm #

      I worked in the public health sector for three years and most of the people I worked with had PhDs in wasting time. There were a lot of meetings and committees but next to nothing was actually accomplished. Deciding whether or not to make vaccines mandatory would have generated 100s — if not thousands — of hours of discussion.

    • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 5:29 pm #

      You nailed it.

      My sisters thought I’d love working in education, so I got a job at a community college 6 years ago. UGH!!

      I also came from the private sector, where things move at a fast pace. Here? Nope. And they talk in circles for months. I’m amazed anything gets done. These are not innovative people by any means.

      You are especially lucky if you ditched it before these past 3 years where the wokiness has taken over.

      I can’t wait to be out of there. I only hope I can get another job. I have an impressive resume, but there are millions of people about to be out of jobs because of the jab.

      • MiddlePeninsula September 3, 2021 at 5:45 pm #

        MaryQueen,
        Here is what happens in a Governmental setting. Folks hack it for a while. If they don’t leave before they are vested in the pension system, they are trapped.
        I worked for state government. It was a soul sucking experience and the most toxic environment ever. All the while, they presented themselves as so caring, such a wonderful workplace….blah, blah, blah. Frankly, I still have nightmares. I stayed until I could manage fifteen years. I was only able to make it work because the house was paid for and I was covered by my spouse’s health insurance. Any young person thinking about a government career should run away fast!

        • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 7:41 pm #

        • Yohannon September 4, 2021 at 12:31 am #

          American Indians have IQ’s of about 85, but since many or most have some White in them, many are much higher.

          Blacks have IQ’s of about 70 – retarded by our standards. American Blacks, because of the White genetic input, average out about 85 as well.

          India Indians are all over the place since there are many different peoples there. I believe it averages out about 85, but there are very smart people there of course.

      • thirdcoastlegend September 3, 2021 at 3:13 pm #

            There are several skin-whitening cosmetic preparations that rellay work. One of them is shiitake mushrooms infused in glycerin. Very pricey as a cosmetic preparation, but easily made at home. I tried my homemade version for awhile, as it is also supposed to promote collagen formation. I had to stop using it, as I got to where I looked like Casper the Friendly Ghost.

            Elderflower preparations were used as skin-whiteners in former times, as well.

          ============

          A very high % of the world’s population favor light skin. Name any country, Africa, India, Korea, anywhere there are brown people they want to be lighter and if not them then their children or grandchildren. When they get the call from the baby ward they don’t inquire about the baby’s health, they ask about the skin color.

          I’ve seen documentaries on this topic. A big issue is the dangers of using skin lightening creams. But they can’t even put a dent in the sale of these products because there is an unshakable cultural desire for light skin. I’ve read lengthy NYT articles, same story.

    There is hope as people are beginning to make and take a stand for their principles. They value liberty and freedom over tyranny. This is now happening in Oregon where their crazed Governor is imposing vaccine mandates of Emergency personnel. Many have said they would rather be fired.

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/oregon-vaccine-mandate-could-lead-mass-exodus-firefighters-paramedics-across-state/5754606

    “Chief Joshua Williams, who moved to the Aurora Fire District in May 2018 after a 12-year career in Depoe Bay, made his position clear in a two-page letter posted to the Aurora Fire District’s social media Friday.

    “This mandate is un-American, as our state government has been weaponized to the point where people are afraid to take a stand,” Williams said. “I will no longer sit silently on the sideline and watch this happen. I love my job, I love the fire service, and more importantly, I love the people that I work with and serve.”

    “I will not abide by the governor’s mandate. Additionally, I will not enforce this mandate on any member of this fire district. In the old America, we used to have choices. Frankly, I do not recognize the country that I live in right now.”

    Williams also noted that 25% or more of the firefighters in his district would also quit to avoid a vaccine mandate. He said this would devastate the ability of the Aurora Fire Department to respond to emergencies.”

        The Governor of Oregon is literally playing with fire. Outside of a few blue coastal cities, most of Oregon is comprised of red rural counties that voted for Trump. If she presses these vaccine mandates there will be considerable social upheaval. She risks creating the kind of civil instability that will lay the groundwork for an outbreak of hostilities if the Biden Regime pushes this country into a second civil war.

        Many otherwise law abiding, “Normie,” types will be radicalized if these insane Democrat tyrants don’t give this idea of vaccine mandates a rest. They are treading on very dangerous ground.

I’ve lived in Oregon since 1957 when my family immigrated here from the Netherlands. Most of Oregon was red at the time. slowly over time that changed because so many Californians moved up here.

          Now people from the East Coast are flocking here and buying up all the homes. My sister is a realtor and was telling me that houses don’t stay on the market long because everyone, including more Chinese, is flocking to our state.

      This is what has to happen. I’m sure my leaving my job in Northern CA won’t have any effect, but people in the health care industry, school teachers, bus drivers, firemen, etc. will. What about garbage collection? Do we want that to pile up? I’m sure they all don’t want the jab.

      Next week is gonna get crazy.

        Americans need to embrace the tactic of the GENERAL STRIKE. Shut down everything across the State of Oregon on a specific day. It is the best way to demonstrate massive opposition. It has worked in Europe and many third world countries for decades as a way of pushing back against government bullying.

    I have been shadowbanned on Twitter for reasons best known to Twitter. But it happened right after I suggested that theme songs are required for these historical transitions (both from Phil Collins/Genesis).

      Hi, Q,

      Actually I did figure the name is EYEtalian, which would be Be-AH-to.

      Just looked up the meaning of “beato” in Italian: Blessed.

      Nice name!!

    • Islander September 4, 2021 at 8:05 pm #

      Hi, Q,

      I thought that name and face were familiar. I watched Beato’s videos about perfect pitch some time ago, with his son, Dylan.

      I think he is really great.

      Just watched this:

    I beg to differ with Jim about Kamala’s future. We’re all just guessing here, so here’s my take: She will be trotted out as the new president with great fanfare and doublespeak. Two reasons:
    1) The object of stealing the election was not to install good government, but to rub our noses in Trump’s defeat. Kamala will be the cherry on top.
    2) The loyal leftists need to be tested one more time to make sure they’ll go along with all lies. You’ll need to rejoice and praise Kamala or be branded a racist/misogynist.

    • lizharmon September 3, 2021 at 2:08 pm #

      Sideshow. JIm’s right on this. Kamala is disliked across the spectrum. I doubt she’s capable of following monosyllable instructions.

      • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 5:48 pm #

        People don’t seem to care any more whether someone is competent or likeable now. Seems as long as there is a D behind their name, it’s all good.

        • JohnAZ September 3, 2021 at 7:21 pm #

          I’d D is behind your name, core to your belief system is that all people are equal, which translates in this case to belief that any one can be President or Vice President, regardless of qualifications.

          Forget resumes, experience does not matter any more, just the color of your skin.

    • cowbell81 September 3, 2021 at 2:09 pm #

      Hmmm, good points all. Time will tell and it keeps getting more interesting. It certainly is always fun to guess and see how low this shit show government will go!

      • Islander September 3, 2021 at 5:27 pm #

        Yes, both points are possible.

        I think it is likely that they will let her give it a whirl in the Oval Office.

        Despite her low popularity. But who cares now what the people think? They will think what they are told to think. They will forget that they hated Kamala and get on board with the celebration of the first woman president.

        They will steer her from behind just like they are steering Biden now.

        It will/would be hard enough to retire Biden. I don’t think TPTB will risk a major constitutional crisis by also sidelining Kamala.

        A new VP will be named, and that person might, like Cheney, be the real pres behind the scenes.

        The Dems can’t afford to play around with Congress. Their majority is too weak.

        They’ve made their bed with Biden-Harris, and now they will have to lie in it.
        Just my take .
        Could well be wrong, of course.

        • Soul Forensics September 3, 2021 at 6:40 pm #

          Democrats in California and in D.C. are starting to wig out over the thought of Newsom getting dumped and Larry Elder becoming governor.

          Apparently Sen. Feinstein has been AWOL and rumors are that she has dementia worse than Biden’s. Elder has said he would name a Republican to the senate if Feinstein were to “retire”.

          So this recall ain’t about crime or homelessness or school choice or Covid lockdowns.

          It’s about Republicans getting control of the Senate.

    • Wizard of the Saddle September 4, 2021 at 6:53 am #

      Shrubrake, I agree with this. Biden was never meant to be anything more than a transitional figure. They know he won’t make it through even a single term of office. The plan all along has been to make Kamala president. Biden was the Trojan Horse. Kamala is the real threat.

    People are overdosing on ivermectin according to this article:

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/oklahomas-ers-backed-people-overdosing-053822589.html

    • neurodoc September 3, 2021 at 3:12 pm #

      People overdose on tylenol and aspirin every day in far far greater numbers. Nothing new.
      You can overdose on almost any drug.

      • malthuss September 3, 2021 at 4:48 pm #

        is that carguile?

      • JohnAZ September 3, 2021 at 7:17 pm #

        Opioids kill lots of folks and is being basically ignored as a social issue. Why, because drugs finance the national and international debt. If Biden wanted to balance the debt, tax the cartels. But I guess he wants to survive.

        Tylenol kills when overdosed, liver failure.

        Alcohol kills when overdosed. Acutely and chronically.

        Ivermectin overdosing is probably caused by the drug not adequately explained to its users. A little helps a little, a whole lot helps a whole lot, right? Right into your grave.

    • pranah September 3, 2021 at 6:26 pm #

      Read the article. Says people were overdosing on doses meant for a fully grown horse. Well…yeah, ya think? Idiots.

      Don’t even know if I trust the article re: so many overdosers that they backed up the ERs and gunshot victims have to wait. No way to tell from here.

      • Q. Shtik September 3, 2021 at 11:13 pm #

        Hey pranah, LMAO at your words “they backed up the ERs and gunshot victims have to wait.” AHHhaahaha!

      Ah, yes, the McMedia and Covid Cultist’s latest talking point has changed.

      No longer “horse dewormer,” now users have simply overdosed on the Nobel Prize winning miracle drug.

    Everyone I know and respect is Going Galt, finally. They’re quietly resisting the vax. They’re pulling their kids from public schools, they’re leaving social media in droves, they’re quitting their jobs and living on the residuals. They are, in effect, much harder to control than they were a year ago, if they’re controllable at all. Surely some Democrat somewhere thought of this possibility, no? Probably not. None of them have read Atlas. Rand laid it all out 60 some years ago and now it’s happening. It’s fun to watch. Their whole fucking world is going to come crumbling down. Then they will be hung from trees. Those of us who know how to sacrifice and can deal with a little hardship in our lives will be just fine.

    • MaryQueen September 3, 2021 at 5:54 pm #

      I hope this is happening widely.

      What does “Going Galt” mean?

      • observex September 3, 2021 at 9:42 pm #

        Basically, “Going Galt” means leaving the larger “collectivist” society to be among like-minded (capitalist / free-minded) people. The phrase refers to John Galt, a persona in Atlas Shrugged.
