Some flinched when Dr. Fauci commanded the children of America to take the mRNA shots fraught with deadly side effects, but now it’s out that the agency he has controlled for decades like a Byzantine despot, the NIAID, gave a $1.6 million grant to a lab in Tunisia — that world-beating center of the bio-sciences — to study what happens when puppy-dogs are pinned down so that ravenous sandflies can chew their snouts off.

I guess it didn’t go too well for the puppies. (And doesn’t one wonder exactly what was learned doing that?) We are not Tunisia, of course, at least not yet. We are the mighty USA, a nation imbued with the moral spirit of Walt Disney, and for us this puppy-dog caper might just be an experiment-too-far. We’ll have to stand by months, maybe years, to find out what the effects are of mRNA shots in human children, but two known possibilities stand out: inflammation and scarring of the heart (myocarditis + sequelae), and an incrementally disabled immune system. Do you really want those shots in your children? — America might ask.

And how does Dr. Fauci imagine the child vaxx program would be carried out? In the schools, I suppose, where the subjects of the experiment can be conveniently rounded-up every day. Would you suppose that roughly half the parents in the land would then withdraw their kids from the public school system and, if so, what becomes of the system when they’re gone? Not anything good, I promise you. But consider that it is already a rotten system ever more incapable of turning out citizens who can speak English, write a coherent sentence, and add up a column of figures, let alone name the capital of Tunisia (warning: trick question!).

Dr. Fauci is ever more emblematic of the American predicament: maniacs and doofuses in charge of powerful institutions strategically positioned to wreck the country. For now, they strangely enjoy protection within this matrix of captive institutions while carrying out their nefarious missions. So, the question arises: do Americans wish to live in a wrecked country?

Looking at the cities controlled by the party of chaos-and-wreckage, the answer seems to be yes. San Francisco, home of House Speaker Mrs. Pelosi, decriminalized crime, an interesting civics experiment from the Thomas Hobbes school of social engineering. Remove the penalty for stealing $950 worth of goods and see what happens. So far, the result seems to be that incentivized folks will enter places of business and help themselves to the goods on display without paying for them. Mrs. Pelosi’s prescription for this is to pass public spending acts that will reduce the value of dollars so that $950 will eventually be the price of a Snickers bar. Problem solved! Steal two and the police might have to get into the act.

For the worker bees of Silicon Valley — rich beyond the wildest dreams of the workless and hiveless bees out in flyover country, weeping over their children’s Happy Meals — San Francisco is the big city hive, the center of their universe, the place where all the honey is stored. Yet the sidewalks outside San Francisco’s fabulous restaurants, where honey is dispensed, are littered with the human equivalent of dung beetles. But what is the insect kingdom without diversity?

Likewise, Seattle, home-base of Bill Gates’s Microsoft and Jeff Bezos’s Amazon, celebrates especially the diversity between stupendously wealthy creatures of the board-room and the filthy, reeking scavengers of the bottoms and margins, huddled in their miserable tent encampments under the freeways in Seattle’s eternal rain. At least those poor creatures get to stay zonked on fentanyl so they don’t suffer so much when the sandflies chew their snouts off.

Has America begun to wonder: is all that okay? And if it’s not okay, what about the people who are keeping it not okay? Do they get to remain in charge of the institutions that exist to regulate okayness? This is the quandary America finds itself in, starting with the head-of-state who, in the proverbial sense, has no clothes, and from him running through all the sub-heads-of-state such as DOT Secretary “Pete,” Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas, Attorney General Merrick Garland, new four-star admiral Rachel (formerly Richard) Levine — in charge of the HHS Public Health Service (including mental health) — and Dr. Tony Fauci, as pesky and eternal in the nation’s public life as the sandfly of the Tunisian littoral.

    What you are witnessing is an Empire gone mad as often happens as it flails around in its death throes. If you want to understand where this is all going then have a look at Roman Emperor Elagabalus. Rome became so insane that it had a 14-year-old male prostitute that worshipped a black rock as Emperor.

    • RaymondR October 25, 2021 at 10:09 am #

      Be careful, you know what’s at the centre of the Ka’aba in Mecca, worshiped by a billion Muslims worldwide? A black rock.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 25, 2021 at 10:24 am #

        Is that where the name of the company buying up all the single-family homes comes from?

        Our Attorney General, who should have been removed from office by now, was just ranting about white people owning homes is racist, or something.

        Obama poked his head out too.

      • messianicdruid October 25, 2021 at 10:53 am #

        Are you sure it is a rock?

      • Alfred October 25, 2021 at 10:58 am #

        Raymond, I’m sorry this is wrong.

        Those billions of Muslims don’t worship rocks of any color.

        There is no God worthy of worship Except God.

        (the one God of all monotheist religions.)

        Rocks, uh… no.

        • hmuller October 25, 2021 at 11:24 am #

          But they’ll beat the hell out of each other to get near enough to touch the rock. Hundreds of people have been trampled to death around the Kaba’a on more than one occasion.

          The Catholic Church played it smart. Millions of holy relics rather than just one. No line, no crowd, no waiting. Donation box on your left.

        • Alzaebo October 25, 2021 at 1:52 pm #

          Durring Hajj they whisper to it, leave notes to it, touch and speak to it. It is a true Old Testament living idol, The spirit lives in the stone.

          There is no One God. There is One God above *your* gods, northern invader.

          Monotheism is a revolt, invented by one demographic in the southern Middle East, in defiance of the far superior demographic driven into their shattered lands.

          • anmariwakaranai October 25, 2021 at 4:48 pm #

            The black rock is a meteorite.

            Black Rock cchanged its name to Xi, didn’t it?

          • anmariwakaranai October 26, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

            Not so, Alzeabo. King Tuts dad had a conversion to monotheism, and they killed him for it. A Jewish psychiatrist told me they got their religion from Egypt.

            Haven’t really looked into it though it is interesting.

            You know how history always rhymes? I wonder if Tuts dads story is the first ripple in the tsunami that came later.

        • MisterBimmler October 26, 2021 at 10:01 am #

          The chunk of meteoric iron at the center of the hooplah is not supposed to be the Diety. But it’s probably Elagabalus’ rock all the same. Same as Joseph Atwill and Robert Price can prove that the Christian religion was a fabrication by the Romans to corrupt and suborn the Jewish religion. But it doesn’t mean there wasn’t a person called Yeshua executed for seditious activities. In fact there were more than one involved in the Judean People’s Front. And you can go on and on. What is God supposed to be, anyway? an old guy in the clouds making everyone miserable? Check. That’s a demiurge.

          • anmariwakaranai October 26, 2021 at 12:20 pm #

            What’s God supposed to be? The force that created all.
            Pre big bang strings? I think so.

          • Alfred October 26, 2021 at 12:59 pm #

            God is labeled correctly. He is many things…

            One thing is Justice.

            God is Justice.

            People have done some unspeakable things.

            I have to believe in Justice.

          • anmariwakaranai October 26, 2021 at 1:24 pm #

            Yes Alfred, but mercy too.
            We all deserve death for what we have done.
            All He wants is the sacrifice of a humble heart,
            A repentant spirit.

    • Hereward the Woke October 25, 2021 at 10:39 am #

      I think Elagbalus might be a step up from Biden. Is he still available?

      • hmuller October 25, 2021 at 11:31 am #

        Elagabalus (reigned 218-222) what a character! Nearly all previous Roman Emperors had sodomized boys and young men – no big deal to the public. But Elagabalus insisted on always being a catcher rather than a pitcher – way too effeminate to be respected as an Emperor. His own grandmother had the Praetorian Guard kill him. Some family?!

        • Hereward the Woke October 25, 2021 at 4:56 pm #

    Jim, you really need to get out. Perhaps a drive trip would do. I think you would be astounded at the sheer volume of cars and drivers everywhere.

    People should step back, forget current events, and try to focus on what they are actually seeing. This can help put them in position as a thinker, a perspective that is necessary to put it all together.

    Their actions speak of desperation. They so want to be able to control what is coming, if nothing more than to save their own skin.

    The truth is that no one is in control. Once that hard truth is realized, your expectations and blood pressure might go down.

    • thirdcoastlegend October 25, 2021 at 10:05 am #

      Good point about traffic.

      In my area the daytime traffic levels are as bad or worse than the pre-Beer Flu days.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 25, 2021 at 10:32 am #

        • Not_GeorgeT October 25, 2021 at 12:01 pm #

          Very busy in the Northeast, however this is the annual “peak Fall foliage season”.

            People inch along in line to get to Vermont. IMO better scenery can be seen right here in New York.

            You don’t even need a car, just stop by any of the local parks other other open spaces.

          • oswegatchie October 25, 2021 at 1:45 pm #

            I grew up in Rensselaer County, NY. Lots of great back roads and right next to Vermont without the tourist crap. Washington County up where Jim lives is even better IMHO. The Adirondacks are world class for a combo of scenery and color.

          • Socrates-Detroit October 25, 2021 at 9:55 pm #

            Many Americans enjoy driving. I do.

            Joyride now, while you can. I do.

            In the not too distant future, that long chain of essential events may be compromised. Refining gasoline is very complex, more so today.

            Some days I’m tempted to get an 1950 Ford. There are quite a few out there. I doesn’t ride or handle or accelerate or stop or do anything as well as my first car, an 1980 Ford Fairmont, let alone a 2011 Chevy Malibu or a 2019 Toyota Camry.

            But it will run on cruder gasoline (provided it is not tainted by too much methanol). It needs more routine maintenance–but it is not complicated. It is much easier to keep running.

            If you need wheels for the long emergency, any basic domestic car with a straight six and manual everything built before 1970, or a VW Beetle, same dates, provided that these cars, or better yet, pickups, led sheltered lives till now and don’t have rust. THEY will be the hot ticket for the long emergency.

            If you have nice weather, and don’t need to carry people or objects, any pre-1980 Honda Piper Cub will do.

            I’m not too enthused about a Mad Max-type society. If it comes to that, I think we are more likely to regress to a feudalism like what we see in Sassenach-Outlander Scotland, where the lords pay tribute to the NWO while they lord it over their fiefdoms, with some treating their peasants better than others.

            If we are lucky, for the duration of mankind as we know it, (that is, until the Second Coming), in the US, the future will be a lot more like the past in small-town, rural America. It will be hard, but “normal”. People will rediscover why society had rules and roles. That will be the place to be. And enterprising people will figure out how to get or make motor fuel. If lucky.

          • hmuller October 26, 2021 at 10:17 am #

            Socrates,

            Your vision resembles that of our host JHK in his 4 book series on life after collapse. (To which I wish he would add more volumes) Basically, it’s an 1870 rural America with only a wisp of local government and no working railroads.

            The Powers That Be have in mind a “Hunger Games” future.

            I suspect much more of the world will look like Haiti. An Elite in guarded compounds. Most of us in abject poverty. Your survival and protection from human predators will depend on belonging to a group (family or like minded friends and neighbors) providing mutual support.

          • Socrates-Detroit October 26, 2021 at 8:37 pm #

            Hmuller,

            Sadly, I agree with you. I think most urban people will be as you say.

            If we are lucky, my assertaion is that in “small-town and rural America” life will go back to 1930-1960. This opinion is strongly biased by “The Long Emergency”, where JHK wrote, to paraphrase, “we will rediscover the basics”.

            The more ‘sophisticated’ a society, the greater the shock will be to it.

            The USA is a very sophisticated society–kind of like a mediocre Ferrari—a lot things need to go “right” for it to work, and when it does, it’s not necessarily even as good as a lesser car.

            Europe is sophisticated too, but they are not plagued with suburban sprawl, and more of their food comes from smaller-scale farming.

            When the machinery seizes up, as it appears to be starting to do, middle suburbia in particular, and America in general is in for a nasty shock.

            During my lifetime, America has wreaked a lot of havoc on several countries whose inhabitants did nothing to me, or us, like Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Yugoslavia before that, not to mention Afghanistan. The irony is that these people suffer, but survive in the face of the chaos and anarchy. Not all of them, but most. Can we Americans?

        It’s busy because of compound growth. If there were the same proportion of reserves to pop as 1910, global pop could hit 20b.

        But since there’s not, and tot sustainable pop sans liquid gold is what, 1b, then guess what?

    If anything will force Dr. Fauci to resign, it will be the puppy torture story, and deservedly so. The observation that those who would abuse people first begin with animals seems to be applicable here with the plans for forced vaccination of children.

    Another observation, don’t assume a conspiracy when incompetence is more likely. Our ruling class are no “elite” but they stunningly incompetent.

      That story was known for weeks if not longer, but it only just made it into the mainstream media.

      There is speculation going on as to why now?

      It seems there is some kind of battle going on as to who is going to take the fall over the gain of function scandal.

      Having Fauci step away over the torture story might protect others higher up, or it might be to protect Fauci from further inquiry as to his doings.

      • hmuller October 25, 2021 at 10:22 am #

        Yes indeed. Cuomo’s removal made the nursing home death story go away.

        • Beryl of Oyl October 25, 2021 at 10:26 am #

          I think Cuomo was removed because he decided to ease up on the mask bs.

          Notice that his wacky successor went for the gagging babies torture.

          • Islander October 25, 2021 at 10:53 am #

            I can’t help thinking that Cuomo was removed because he was—in spite of the nursing home mess—actually a credible future presidential candidate. Not in 2020, but possibly in the future.

            He could have formed a competing power base within the party.

            Someone the Deepers couldn’t control?

            Just a wild speculation.

            But look at how Spitzer was taken down with virtually the same gambit.

            it is quite possible that Fauci is on the block to be taken down with the puppies taking the role of Spitzer’s hookers and Cuomo’s “inappopriateness.” And Epstein’s underage transgressions.

            Misdirection from the real crimes, or the real threats to TPTB posed by the takedownee.

            But, as I say, just speculatin’!!

          • Beryl of Oyl October 25, 2021 at 11:06 am #

            You are correct that he was on Letitia James’ list because he had presidential aspirations.

            But why remove him at that particular moment in time, when she already had him on notice?

            It didn’t hurt that MAN in a dress to have killed off a number of nursing home residents.

            I think that’s why James didn’t follow through with prosecuting Cuomo over the nursing homes. Others who did similar things would have been exposed.

            I think your speculations have a lot of validity.

            Eliot’s removal eventually cleared the way for Andrew to become governor.

            Everybody thinks that Eliot’s successor also resigned in disgrace, but he didn’t. He just bowed to pressure and didn’t seek his own term.

            Eliot Spitzer, for all his flaws, was at times capable of doing something just because it was right.

            Unlike the rest of them.

          • Islander October 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm #

            Beryl,

            What does this refer to?
            “It didn’t hurt that MAN in a dress to have killed off a number of nursing home residents.”

            Are you talking about “Rachel” Levine?
            Or someone else?

            Can’t quite follow your train of thought.

            Re Spitzer, it is my recollection that he was the only guy who was serious about investigating Wall Street funny business in connection with the 2008 meltdown.

            Am I wrong about that? I know for sure that he was the ONLY person who was looking into something big just when he was conveniently sidelined.

            Like when Paull Wellstone was suddenly dead and he was the ONLY one who was asking inconvenient questions about the Iraq WMD frenzy.

            I always hoped that Spitzer would make a political comeback. Much worse men have done so.

            But perhaps he’d had enough. Seen enough.

          • AngryFarmer October 29, 2021 at 2:44 pm #

            They were afraid he’d run again.
            The Dems see Covid as a new Great Depression.
            They plan to use it to foist a second New Deal.

            To this end, they made Cuomo a poster boy…an avatar of competent big government.

            Fast forward to the nursing home mass-murder.

            Simple enough to keep the country from talking about it when you control the media.

            BUT….

            Even flaccid NY Republicans would use it in a campaign.

            This threatened to discredit the entire narrative.

            So he was quiety asked not to run. He refused.

            So they took him out, like George did Lenny.

        • thirdcoastlegend October 25, 2021 at 10:27 am #

          Supposedly Cuomo’s fall was a successful coup staged by Hochul after he told her he was going to replace her with a more vibrant Lt. Gov for his next run.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 25, 2021 at 10:34 am #

            That’s plausible, but it would have been more like him to not tell her anything, and just do it at the last minute.

      • SW October 25, 2021 at 10:25 am #

        As horrible as this is, maybe finally, Fauci will be forced to answer for his actions. But — who are kidding? — he’ll deny, deny,deny and some low level stooge who’s name is on an official form will take the fall. But how long can he hide behind them is the question? And how long before the people he’s hiding behind decide they quit as the stooges?

        Here’s a story about a young girl who asked her parents to be part of the study for the vaccine (about 1,000 participated) and within 24 hours had a severe reaction. There’s a recording of a phone call to Pfizer at the bottom you might want to listen to if you have the time. It’s about 15 minutes in length.

          • SW October 25, 2021 at 5:53 pm #

            This story will be buried or somehow cancelled before it can be fully investigated & exposed. At least , that’s my guess at this point. Fauci made the announcement that in a few weeks the vaccine will be available for children & there will be plenty lining their kids up — the COVID subgroup of Heaven’s Gate.

        Ah! Like Cuomo going down for being a boor instead of instituting bad policy that led to a massive spike in nursing home deaths, a policy followed by other governors.

        Every scapegoating exercise–whether the chosen sacrifice is guilty or innocent–is preceded by institutional crisis. Letting Fauci go over dogs instead of GOF research is a two-fer: (1) a vast network is protected by removing an obvious culprit, and (2) the inference that GOF research caused the virus, or its accidental release, remains alive and squirming in the subterranean zeitgeist, rebooting the fear necessary for totalitarianism. Mustn’t let the fear wane along with antibodies!

        Expect many more scapegoats as the moral defectives who pass for a ruling class go into a high-speed wobble and begin each day with dread at their own looming irrelevance.

            I think Spitzer was going to prosecute bankers.
            I have no idea why Cuomo was ousted, unless he wasn’t willing to fire 70,000 nurses and doctors, the way his successor was thrilled to do.

      • thirdcoastlegend October 25, 2021 at 10:35 am #

      Raymond,

      “don’t assume a conspiracy when incompetence is more likely”. That’s one school of thought, but my thinking travels in the opposite direction: don’t assume incompetence when a conspiracy is more likely”.

      For a top echelon of mandarins with unlimited access to money and power – close relatives, but not the same thing, and they have both – it would be a strange form of incompetence to blunder their way into key events that have been the levers and actuators steering this Titanic into a now unavoidable iceberg. Consider the Reichstag fire, “Remember the Maine”, Gulf of Tonkin, the Kennedy brothers’ murders, 9/11, convenient “suicides” a la Epstein, and finally, the biggest “incompetence” of all, gain of function research, covid hysteria, “vaccines”, etc, just to mention some of the best known head scratchers.

        @Rulo Deschamps,

        Re: Re Raymond

        It’s an interesting question, and has been for me for awhile. The way you phrase it jogged some gears to turn.

        Gregory Batson, in his book, “Mind and Nature” 1982, spent some paragraphs on the subject of scale. It seems that within different levels of scales, different things look the same, and also the same things look different — going from one scale to another. He gave some examples, but after all these years, of failing to get the point, this seems a case in point.

        One dollar, ten dollars, a hundred dollars, a thousand dollars, ten thousand dollars, a hundred thousand dollars, we are talking about one level of economic measure, that is not a unit of measure, but is a context complete with expectations and limited thinking. One million, tenmillion, ahundred million, abillion dollars, is also a context complete with expectations and limited thinking, but on another level. Many words change meaning or valiance on this level from the “lower” level. The same is true going to the next level of ten billion dollars and above. Yet economists think of dollars as units of measure consistent regardless of level of scale. Things are relative between levels. I’m not saying everything is therefore relative, I’m saying it’s useful to be able to find the discontinuity’s of meanings of words because it indicates a change of level. Thus I would argue, reducing the population of humanbeings on earth by six sevenths is on one level genocide, and on another level, saving the planet for the one seventh which is on that level.

        Of course, I’ve skipped the level in the middle there, where making a choice of where to stand when you aren’t needed any longer, by those at the highest level, is needed — and you weren’t lucky enough, though you once were a potential member of those who would be counted among the one seventh. Turns out to be your plans are moot, because they decide for you, in or out. Looking at you, Dr. Antony Fauchi.

        Historically, in every government, in every empire, in every monarchy, there is always, behind them in the shadows, a deep state which provides the logistics for Henry V or whomever to go claim whatever the term on whomever. Henry proceeds to either squander it all or expand the investment. Pity Shakespeare didn’t dramatize that part of the operation. Or maybe he did, I haven’t read much Shakespeare.

        At any rate, on the third level, competence is assumed because you got there, first by birth into old money, and then you mastered the concept of “zero or one” what a byte is. Then you multiplied the number of dollars in the family by some factor. How? by making plans that include others. Even better you now have plans to exclude six seventh of the world population. Plans to “save the planet”

        It’s only on the first level, where reaching nine billion people on the planet seems to be the goal, where you are incompetent, or conspiring genocide. Is making most females, or most people infertile, genocide? Simply running real world experiments or tests on things that might cause infertility, which may or may not succeed, but will nevertheless be instructive, and lead to GMO viruses which are successful, is that genocide? Or is failing the first goround incompetence?

        Of course we must have those in the shadows in Iran, China, Mexico, Afgantown, who have similar MOs, but different objectives. Putin and Lavarov I assure you have different objectives and are quite competent insofar as resisting shadow Russia as well as shadow DC and London. Xi is mostly on board with the west, but China is split, so dealing with the demands of one thousand seven hundred million “citizens” requires alot of flexibility in thinking. “Saving the Earth” and “Saving China” may end up looking alot like genocide, because the problem of feeding that many people three times a day can get old after a few decades of the numbers just going up. If you can imagine the problem from the third level.

        It seems getting the numbers to go down instead of up, up, and up, past the number X, which equals the number of people on the planet needed to consume all available current resources thus overwheming the productive capacity of the systems of the planet to produce — is not humanly possible. One way or another the population will exceed X, and then crash, and for those on the third level, multiplying their investment on the event only means directing planning in that direction. Which if done successfully, is not conspiracy, but rather, competent planning.

        Of course, I was interested in the question of how Mind works. I do hope there are levels where there are no dollars at all. Indeed, in Nature, the dynamic balance of the elements is random, within a range of variation. Throw in technocratic science with abundant fossil fuels, add a pinch of gumption and pint of good’ol American candoo voodoo, and the carrying capacity of humanbeings on Earth is expanded by a factor of say ten. Empty the oceans of fish and replace with plastic crap. Mine topsoil for nutrients and replace with petroleum derived NPK. Dumb down six seventh of the citizens with compulsory education. Follow up with stupefying entertainment with Alec Baldwin as the cherry on top pschyop, where an entertainer is just giving’em what they want to pay for, OTOH, and OTOH, has no confidence the plebeians can choose the right candidate, let alone maintain the safety discipline necessary for handling firearms, then kills with a gun on a movie set and gets away with it.

        Not that everything is a psychop. I no longer try to keep track of all the psychops, I prefer to stick to fundamentals, to beauty, to the seasons passings. This is also Mind.

          Yuri, I spent an hour yesterday and about the same today searching and considering your post, thnx. I don’t know why because I am an absolute generalist, but ‘economies of scale’ keep popping into my mind, standard deviation, and the micro/macro effect/affect in nature. So whether it be enforced by man or nature, God or demon, the efficiency of the earth to sustain us, reflected in (Rulos rainbow slices, debris floating in the rings of Saturn or filling our dirt sandwich, or), one grain of wheat, remains on the brink.
          The cup is overflowing &
          This is the singularity.

          Btw, got lost in Shakespeare quotes:

        • Rulo Deschamps October 27, 2021 at 5:04 pm #

          Yuri,

          Your comments warrant much more thought than I can express here. I’ll ponder them awhile.

          On the subject of scale, and $: Agreed. Massive distortions. Take cost of food. I’m a small farmer. I know how much work it is to raise and harvest plants and animals. How can they be so cheap at the store? Many reasons, subsidies galore, petrochemicals and automation, factory operations. We’re starting to see changes there with food inflation starting to tick towards the true cost to eat. Not quite there yet, but starting.

          Same on many areas. How can “stuff”, tools, appliances be so cheap? Outsourcing, slave labor, diff environmental standards, lower quality, planned obsolescence. Again, some correction happening, but needs to go a long way. Our grandparents had tools that would outlive them, our parents, and reach us. See how long a Chinese screwdriver lasts and you get a lesson in all this.

          Shakespeare, I used to memorize parts of Henry V, being my favorite play. Still remember the long intro. Part of it: “Then, should the warlike Harry, like himself, assume the port of Mars, and at his heels, leashed in like hounds, should famine, sword and fire crouch for employment” It’s been many years, so it may not be 100% correct, but you get the gist. I suppose you are talking about using the treasury to conquer France, Agincourt and all that.

          Putin and Lavrov are very smart and Russia is their first priority, as it should be. Xi is very hard to read.

          Dollars are another distortion. And yes, print enough, and the population may rise to a level that even by today’s bloated numbers would be shocking. At the costs you describe, basically the death of Earth. $ is the biggest enemy of nature, as enough $ will cause every bit of nature to be sold to highest bidder.

          “I no longer try to keep track of all the psychops, I prefer to stick to fundamentals, to beauty, to the seasons passings. This is also Mind.” Amen to that. Thank you.

          • anmariwakaranai October 27, 2021 at 5:56 pm #

            Xi is not hard to read. China first. Death to America.

          • Rulo Deschamps October 27, 2021 at 7:38 pm #

            anmari, that’s the overt, sure. The covert… harder to understand. Maybe not “death to America”, but “absorb America, let her live, but only as our pet”? It’s a symbiotic relationship we have with them now, a strange interaction where it seems one cannot live with the other, like in some toxic romances. Also, like another poster noted, China is far from a unified front, although they’d want the world to believe that. All kinds of intrigues and maneuvering behind the curtains. Lots of power factions, powerful actors. And I don’t mean the “democracy and human rights activists”! Others. The industrialists, the imperialists, the military, the internal and external spy apparatus, technologists, intellectuals, racists, universalists, scientists… I don’t understand that place, I don’t have enough information…

            When I lived over there, pre Xi, it was pretty clear they allowed the black market to function for everyday people, or rather tolerated it, a factory could be the gutted opera house, women huddled on the floor around a brazier sewing everlast equipment, non functioning chandeliers still swaying in the icy breeze coming off the river, where giant signs implored “Don’t throw your newborn girls in the river!” All was grey, after Hong Kong, the Vegas of the Orient, though I did miss Thailand in my travels.

            But as with Evergrande, as with Corona, & as with education, now as then when word comes down, It Is Decreed.

      Our ruling class is stunningly incompetent? Hmmm… Greatest upward transfer of wealth in history since 2008 – especially during the Plandemic. Real income for real people down over the past 50 years. Citizens locked down, vaxxed and surveilled. Small business destroyed, monopolies more powerful than ever. If that’s incompetence, well goddamn, it’s a good thing our ruling class is so damn stupid.

      Torturing Tunisian puppies? If we don’t care about Fauci’s role in the AIDS plandemic, or the current plandemic, I don’t see anyone throwing the evil gnome on the pyre for some pound puppies. In my opinion, this is just more carefully released “information” to condition us to accept new levels of depravity from our masters.

            I told him “In my defense, I didn’t even know you when I named you, and she was a really really good dog”.

    The test beagles were “debarked” before having their heads sewn into boxes to be eaten by sandflies. This was done so the “researchers” wouldn’t be bothered by the incessant barking, whining, and shrieks of pain. Likewise, ordinary people have been debarked by universities, the corporate media, lawfare, pharma, and all the other racketeering demons of moral collapse.

      The man who funded that was allowed to make up the “science: that two year old babies needed to be gagged and smothered, and people carried out the orders of this sick quack.

      Again, this was easily available information when this ghoul was selected for and allowed to remain on the coronavirus task force.

      Why didn’t President Trump fire him, when he finally and belatedly got it through his head, what Fauci was?

      Someone obviously advised him against it. Why?

      It may seem like a minor point, but I’d substitute “bothered” with “irritated”.

      These are sadists and monsters. “Bothered” could be read as pressing against a conscience they don’t have. But people get irritated by shrieks and yelps, like any Sunday morning homeowner trying to read the paper who shuts his or her window to howling dogs near the front yard.

        No, true sadists/psychopaths relish and revel in the horror of something else’s suffering. That is their ‘boner’ moment. Normal people, with an inkling of empathy (morals/ethics), cringe and can’t even bare it.

        One thing about high ranking government officials is that they are treated well and tend to overstay their welcome on Planet Earth. My bet is that he will still be walking this world when the SHTF and everything collapses.

        All these motherf#$ers who are purposely experimenting with people and making themselves uber rich off the backs of the many will get what’s coming to them. All across the globe we are seeing civil unrest and protests, sometimes, violent. You just don’t hear about it because the Gov’t and Pressitutes don’t want you to know. People are getting pissed.

        These sequence of events being acted out today has been performed throughout history. We might think it’s new or novel but it’s been done before. The endgame is always the same and it has never been kind to the ruling class.

        • C.O.Jones October 25, 2021 at 11:47 am #

          Fauci must be arrested before he is suicided. He needs to be squeezed in a public trial and everyone he rats on must be held accountable.

          He may be 82 but he is afraid of dying. If he were merely incarcerated, he would go the way of Jeffrey Epstein in short order.

          He should be arrested rendition-style, isolated and stashed someplace not easily accessible and interrogated on camera, broadcast for the world to see. If he goes schtum, try him for the crimes against humanity he has flagrantly committed included gain of function diseases, note plural, and the death shot that has put billions in his various accounts. Hold him accountable per the Nuremberg codes and march him to the gallows. He will no longer remain silent.

          Time is of the essence because if this raging psychopath feels the walls close in any further, he can and will release something that makes Covid look like robust health. Creutzfeldt Jakob is in the realm of possibility and so is Ebola.

          • Anthea October 25, 2021 at 1:42 pm #

            I’m not much of a student of history, but what little I have read indicates that no regime’s criminals are prosecuted or executed until that regime is replaced. Normally a regime is replaced when there is a competing power structure of some kind that potentially has sufficient power to replace them. The competing power structure normally wants to replace the old regime because it looks like a pretty nice gig.

            There are several ways this can happen: military conquest by another nation-state, military coup, or internal revolt. I’m not sure I see a competing power structure that has the muscle for this.

          • Alfred October 25, 2021 at 5:08 pm #

            They can ‘Dark Winter’ any time they want.

      People like Fauci become detached from the consequences of their experiments. Their only response is “Oops”.

      • Soul Forensics October 25, 2021 at 2:35 pm #

        “Become”?

        Many evil people show their true colours as youths, or even in the usual golden, innocent years pre- 8 years old.

        I don’t know Fauci’s early life story, but many people think there’s some adverse seminal event that turns normal people into monsters. That’s often not the case. As they age, they just become more experienced and competent about using their sadism to greater effect.

    • Alzaebo October 25, 2021 at 3:45 pm #

      Only difference is Fauci and the medical “research demon sadists are real.

      The Mengele story was a work of fiction, a book put out by scammers who wanted money.

      They were “survivors” that called their little ‘nonprofit’ CANDLS. When asked asked to show their scars, they claimed that Mengele was such a gifted eebil genius surgeon that his surgeries left no scars, for they had none.

      The real Josef Mengele was a wounded combat nurse given light duty taking notes in a notebook as he observed twins and a family of dwarves at play.

      The whole “injecting blue dye in the eyes, transplanting organs, grafting hands” was simply a repeat of the outrageous Hollywood Supervillain horseshit of atrocity propaganda used even in the ancient world.

      Gods, how they must laugh up their sleeves.
      Tack on a moral patina and people will lap up the most ridiculous claims without question.

      That’s what I did, believing these absurdities and thir moral premise all my life. Then one day I asked myself, “well, how did they do it? I mean, what are the mechanics, the logistics involved?”

      • Paula D October 25, 2021 at 4:00 pm #

        You made me wonder, so I looked up Mengele.
        He was protected from capture by the Russians, ferried through the ratline to South America, and died a natural death many decades later.
        Therefore, I reject any claim that he was low level. If he were actually low level, he would have been prosecuted and/or killed.

        • Paula D October 25, 2021 at 4:03 pm #

          That is, the Russians would have captured him, but he was moved out of their way, as the Russians advanced towards Auschwitz

            Thank you, Paula D, many fled the murder of their nation, even those of low rank.

            Eventually, so many hollywood stories were written, they became holy writ, a new religion.
            This new belief’s moral premise has ruined its own writers as much as it has ruined us.

          • Alzaebo October 25, 2021 at 5:50 pm #

            Addendum, I should explain: Ever since I actually looked into what was actually claimed, I find the war propaganda we Boomers were steeped, soaked, drenched in to be particularly galling.

            Vile and repugnant. Yet, in any comment section, we are awash in such references, the moral inference cannot be escaped.

            Worst of all, is that it is all so shallow. Like listening to primitive, frightened children as they argue and blame. I should and will try to hold my tongue.

        Logistics, as in materials receipts, pay stubs, work requests, quartermaster lists, documentation, physical evidence…

        Go ahead. Look for yourself. The only documentation I found was a headline copy of the British Independent newspaper…

        That made the same claims- except that it was Russia that did it, dated 1917.

        Stories lifted from a certain ‘history’ book, repeated now as they were then, one needs only change the names but keep the theme.

        The Longest War, tactics used when one is a permanent minority, yet winning by any means necessary is all that matters against the northern invaders.

        War without weapons. Culture war. Storytelling and rumours are a mighty hack of the human operating system, because speech, and memory transported in verbal stories, is the human OS. Our guidelines.

        This hack, this War, is baked in the cake. It is a Hatfield-McCoy scenario running for so long that its origins have been forgotten. We’re in consanguinous deep instinct territory- this is Nature talking, demographic competition for territory and dominance, beyond reason and capable of many copycats.

            Through closed-up towns, forgotten dreams, and welcome signs
            Fading far behind

            I’m thankful for the sons who died
            Didn’t back down from a Federal fight
            Where the lead lies still and the smoke still rises
            On the Blair mountainside
            Coal Country

            It put a roof over my head
            And the armor on the tanks in Normandy

        “That is to say we and our kids, grandkids and now great grandkids have been saddled with enormous amounts of debt.” No. The national debt as it exists now can never be paid off. Perhaps some of the current holders of that debt will get ownership of pieces & parts of the USA, the other debt holders will be left holding the bag — of nothing. Bill Gates may think he owns a lot of valuable of farmland, but traditionally land gets taxed. The voters have a say as to what the tax rate actually is.

      According to the NY Times, (a garbage rag of lies) the just ended fiscal 2021 budget spent $6.8 trillion; $4.0 trillion from revenue; $2.8 trillion from FED printed dollars. Fiscal 2020 was even worse. (Personally, I suspect the real numbers are worse than they’re saying, i.e. less revenue, more borrowing.)

      All dollars are fungible. So did the dollars used to pay the interest on the $28 trillion Fed Govt. debt come from revenue dollars or printed dollars? Take your pick. I view that expense as coming from the $2.8 trillion in newly borrowed money.

      The Federal Reserve is a consortium of banks – private banks. Our money is loaned into existence and the debt has to be paid off. The Constitution says nothing about this, but rather that our government creates its own money, based on gold and silver. Thus with the Federal Reserve Act, our sovereignty was given away to non-elected, unnamed individuals, quite possibly foreign with interests not in our best interest.

      • tresho October 25, 2021 at 12:10 pm #

        “The Constitution says nothing about this, but rather that our government creates its own money, based on gold and silver.” That part of the Constitution has been totally ignored for decades now. IIRC the Constitution actually defines the value of a dollar based on the weight of gold.

          Might as well give it away
          After you’ve stored the grain
          Golds gonna rust
          And silvers gonna turn to dust.

          And the locusts in the Parsha plague
          Are drones that come from China
          And what they bring
          Is an awful sting
          A dyna.

          If this is a psalm
          Of what comes along
          Then know that the end
          Is His victory.

        • hmuller October 25, 2021 at 6:43 pm #

          The Constitution doesn’t get into the numbers. The Coinage Act of 1792 defines a dollars as 371.25 grains of pure silver or 24.75 grains of pure gold. This creates a silver to gold ration of exactly 15 to 1. An Act in 1837 changed those numbers a little.

    To those of you who haven’t heard about it, look up “Cloward-Piven Strategy” named after 2 Columbia University professors who in the 1960s wanted to overload and blow up the New York welfare system so that it could be replaced by something more radical and controlled by the Feds. A Wikipedia article quotes the 2 professors:

    “The ultimate objective of this strategy—to wipe out poverty by establishing a guaranteed annual income—will be questioned by some. Because the ideal of individual social and economic mobility has deep roots, even activists seem reluctant to call for national programs to eliminate poverty by the outright redistribution of income.[2]”

    It’s taken people like Bernie Sanders 60 years of marching through America’s institutions, but they’re almost at the goal line.

  11. Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 10:24 am #

    Thank you once again, Mr K, for your essays, articles and fiction over the years. They have been an antidote to the poison of mediocrity and conformism all around me. And inspired some decisions taken a long time ago, which I’m glad I did. Time is proving you right. Some readers laughed at your timelines, but I knew your vision was true. For me, it was never about speculation, putting dates on events, gaming the markets. It was about radically reducing consumption, becoming sustainable and productive, a citizen not a consumer. It is in great part thanks to your intellectual caliber and clear eyed analysis of current events that I started drifting away from Babylon over a decade ago and focusing on building community, supporting local, educating myself about organic farming while there was still time, getting rid of the TV and its mirages – reducing, reusing, recycling, reading, thinking, and writing, away from the madding crowds. Here’s to you, sir. Thank you.

    Thank you also for the good wishes of commenters here when I decided I needed to travel to my old country to say my farewell to the most important woman in my life, my dear mother, who doesn’t have much time left. It was perilous journey in many ways, but I made it there and just made it back to my farm and my family in the US. I appreciate the good vibes that were sent my way.

    The trip turned out to include another farewell, too: a farewell to my city. The epochal changes we’re experiencing worldwide, due to covid, and the accelerated push towards a surveillance totalitarianism make me suspect I’ll never see it again. Even if I were able to travel back there, the city will be gone, its very soul and essence changed, corrupted beyond recognition.

    It would be rude for me to share all my observations here. I posted them elsewhere in case anyone’s interested, along with many photos, and will include the link at the bottom of my post. Here’s a bit that’s representative of the larger piece:

    “For a few moments, looking out that window, I thought that everything still looked the same, so things may be the same as when I left so long ago. How wrong I was. Not only the place had changed to an almost unrecognizable level, I had changed too. The years do that to our perception. So, while some appearances remained the same, in truth I had arrived at a different city – in great part due to the rise of the global covid catastrophe. A great reset was indeed happening and I would be a witness to it in the weeks that followed. Not stopping to shower, eat or sleep, I closed the window and rushed out of the apartment to go see my mother at her retirement home. I dived into the city always carrying a notebook and camera phone. I cannot present an organized essay of what I experienced. Rather, the reader will have to do with glimpses of reality, insights, random conversations, images. These “screen captures” so to speak will lead to a few conclusions; but my conclusions may be different from the conclusions others may arrive to or infer from these raw materials. Very few will read this, but if only one person finds value in my scribbled notes and bad photos, that’s good enough. 
    So, let’s plunge into one of the 3 capitals or large metropolitan areas closest to Antarctica and the South Pole, along with Wellington, New Zealand, and Melbourne, Australia: Buenos Aires, Argentina, as experienced in October 2021, the second year of the Great Reset.”

    • SW October 25, 2021 at 10:36 am #

      Rulo — Thank you for your lovely post. I know your visit to your mother meant the world to her and she will cherish it forever.

      JHK — I read The Geography of Nowhere about 15 years ago and started following you and reading your books after that. My guess is you’ve had a positive influence on many people’s lives that you’ll never hear from but maybe that’s the fate of all writers. Keep up the good work 🙂 it’s very appreciated.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 5:50 pm #

        SW, thanks. Yes, it’s important to let mentors and admired figures know we appreciate them while they’re still alive. An independent thinker, such as JHK, surely had to battle harder, work harder, to make his voice heard. And some of us heard it loud and clear, inspiring us to be a better version of ourselves. I can only guess, but for each one of us here, there are probably hundreds more that have paid attention to what the man had to say and will not move a finger to thank him.

        So it’s important to say “thank you” now, and show it in concrete ways, a contribution, buying more of his books to give as gifts, anything one can do. We all go into the darkness (or the light) in the end, but while someone who has done us a good deed – make us think and act righteously – is still around, it is indeed the right thing to tell them “you have been good to me, and I appreciate it”.

        Come think of it, that’s what I needed to tell my mother, face to face, one more time.

    • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 10:53 am #

      Thank you for this most excellent post, Rulo. We have missed you. Thank you also for the link to read more.

      Reading your comment reminded me of a novel I read a few weeks ago, Pedro Paramo, by Juan Rulfo. About returning to one’s place of birth, only to see it now as a ghost town.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 5:56 pm #

        Thank you, Mary. Pedro Páramo is a masterpiece. So glad you’ve found it. And yes, it’s an apt analogy of my recent experience, the return, the ghost town, the fading family, death, power, everything once solid melting into air. Futility, defeat, but also meaning.

        Another poster here mentioned Eliot’s “Wasteland”, and I find it amazing that “Páramo” means “Wasteland” in Spanish. Language, timing, ideas and facts that always come in pairs, to tell us something, to capture our attention. The world is a strange place, and there’s so much we don’t know about how it works, what it says.

        • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 7:54 pm #

          Oh isn’t that incredible? Wasteland?

          And that novel came to me so serendipitously. A friend suggested it, when I said I liked Marquez and Allendo’s magical realism.

          It is indeed a masterpiece, as is The Wasteland.

    • JackStraw October 25, 2021 at 11:19 am #

      That was an interesting read, and I can certainly feel your sadness for your once vibrant and prosperous country. Unfortunately, the US is heading down the same path.

      I remember reading a daily blog years ago by a man who was simply trying to survive in a collapsing Argentina. I believe he finally escaped to Ireland. It was a popularly referenced site back on the old LATOC site.

      • pranah October 25, 2021 at 5:42 pm #

        That was ferFAL. His blog was immensely informative and eye-opening re: living in a collapsed economy. The danger he and his family were in all the time–frightening. And he always said that it could happen here. He and his family finally were able to escape to Ireland.

        Rulo–welcome back, thanks for the post. So glad you were able to visit your mother! Sad about your city. I grew up in a small midwestern town, and today it’s a shadow of its former self. Yes, very sad.

        • Alzaebo October 25, 2021 at 5:54 pm #

          And now Ireland, too, is lost. We live in epic times. When the ape historians write their own version of Genesis, they’ll be writing about us, and the legend of the Fall.

          • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 6:24 pm #

            Alzaebo, I thought the same thing. Ireland has become a strange place, for lack of a better word. The madness is everywhere, every country falls.

        • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 6:29 pm #

          pranah, yes, I remember him too. I briefly mention the outer rings of the metropolis, how harsh and dangerous they are, in my piece. Even the middle class enclaves are a gamble with your life as the stakes. The writer you mention lived in one of them.

          I think the French call it elan vital, the will to live, or something like that. It seems Western culture and civilization has lost it and is slowly, or not so slowly, fading away, sapped of its strength, from the Midwest to Buenos Aires to London and everywhere in between…

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 6:20 pm #

        Jack, you reminded me of the Ennis family, cherished neighbors and friends when I was growing up. Father, Kevin, was one of those Irish-Argies who couldn’t speak a lick of English despite his name. But his mother, who lived with them, was from the old country, always baking scones for the 8 children, serving them milky tea. The whole clan would go to mass together. The children were all blond and blue eyed. Because they were so many, and their father didn’t make much money as a math professor at the university, the family was barely clinging to lower middle class status. But what they lacked in material goods was more than compensated by the big heart and love, the laughter and goodwill.

        When I became a teen and the hormones kicked in, I tried to date the elder daughter, Brenda, invited her to the movies one rainy Sunday. Oh surprise when she showed up with her dad. Oh, they took their Catholicism seriously, our friends! No fooling around. After that I moved on to easier prey. I’m sure she made it pure to the altar. I know she became a doctor and moved to Patagonia, with her husband, lucky guy. Some of the other children did in fact move to Ireland.

        Thank you for this memory. I hadn’t thought of them in a long time. My mother really enjoyed their friendship and long sessions of scrabble.

    • Mostly Disagreeable October 25, 2021 at 11:26 am #

      Reading your post–so full of love and grief–reminded me of Eliot’s The Wasteland. “These fragments I have shored against my ruins.”

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 6:40 pm #

        Mostly, thank you. While I’ve always been a voracious reader of prose, poetry has been difficult for me, especially if not written in my native Spanish. It may be that it’s an art form, in my view, more suitable for listening to than to reading it. One thinks of Homer, or the Bards, and realizes the rhyme, the verses, were a mnemotechnic device, to help remember long narratives by heart.

        In any case, I’m aware of the work you mention, if vaguely, because in my youth I was lucky enough to have a girlfriend who was a big fan, to the point of naming her cat Eliot, and who would read me bits of it, post coitus, so I was able to absorb the feel if not the detail of it. Love and grief, yes.

    • Jarek October 25, 2021 at 12:04 pm #

      A nation is one people of one race. Argentina opened its borders to the Indians and Mestizos of half a dozen other countries – who and resent and hate the White Man for his achievements. Argentina had successfully assimilated various European ethnes, but this is simply a bridge too far. They will not be assimilated but will assimilate Argentina to them and their hatred of it.

      All to save some money….

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 7:25 pm #

        Race: a facet of the diamond, a layer of the onion, a band of the rainbow, one of a multitude of interacting, complex factors that determine what the human experience is.

        Not a one size fits all explanation.

        A proctologist can only understand the body using his expertise and knowledge of the anus and its functions. A generalist medical doctor, however, has a better picture of what’s ailing the patient, because he’s not focused on just one organ or system, but the whole human body.

          Rulo,
          Would a proctologist then be correct in opining that a general practitioner “doesn’t know shit”?

      Rulo, what a magnificent piece you’ve written there. It brought a tear to my eye. I think you have perfectly illustrated, on so many levels, the transfer from old to new, from personal and human to mindless bot, from artistic and intellectual to a technical garbage future controlled by China and its WEF/Davos crew. I think we are entering a new ‘dark ages’. The future is not progress, it’s regressive.

      It is so sad to see such a huge city in the complete throes of the covid hoax, to the point where it has lost all its charm and warmth.

      And thank you for including a photo of your lovely mother. I am glad you were able to make the trip and are back safely.

      The photos are also splendid and say so much. The loneliness in many of them is apparent. Or the hopelessness. The buildings are beautiful though, the old ones with the European-inspired architecture.

      And your anecdotal stories peppered throughout – riveting. All in all, just fantastic.

      Thank you for sharing it with us.

      Thank you, Rulo. I enjoyed the words and loved the photos. Also a tinge of emotion at the picture of your mother. The craziness is global. I can’t help but wonder whether this is something in nature causing us to self-destruct.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 6:58 pm #

        Slug, that’s a good observation, a force pushing us to self destruct. I wonder if it applies to every human group or just to us Westerners. I say this because I don’t see it in Asians, Muslims, Africans, but maybe I’m missing something.

        Your handle always makes me think of Margaret Atwood’s brilliant dystopian trilogy, Oryx and Crake. In that work of fiction, humans have messed with swine DNA in order to use them to grow replacement organs for geezers rich enough to pay for them. Some of the pigs escape and go feral, and become pigoons, very intelligent, very aggressive.

        Fiction?

        Glad you enjoyed my observations, if “enjoyed” is the right word. It’s a bit sad.

      Rules,

      I’ve trashed Florida avocados more than once on this blog. I’ll try to be more considerate in the future…

      It’s sad to see everything that was good about this world crumble away leaving only stooped, pitted skeleton. The Michigan I fled over two decades ago is just as cold and unwelcoming as it was when I left it, now that I have returned. The biggest difference is that now it is populated by tatted, pierced junkies polluting their medicated minds with pornographic country hip hop, in debt (yet still able to afford endless doses of ink and weed), unemployed, (or if accidentally employed, trying like hell to make themselves unemployed again) and raising a generation even more feral than themselves. But, to their credit, like the Buenos Aires dumpster diver, up here in the frozen north they are on to the Scamdemic – and heavily armed.

      • tresho October 25, 2021 at 1:43 pm #

        “The Michigan I fled over two decades ago is just as cold and unwelcoming as it was when I left it”
        Once, exactly as I was driving over the state line from Ohio to Michigan, a Michigan driver passed me, cut me off in traffic and gave me the finger. Mother was sitting next to me. I told her with glee, “There’s the Michigan welcome sign!” She cracked up.

        • Blackbird October 25, 2021 at 2:11 pm #

          I thought Michigan drivers were bad until I moved to Florida.
          I thought Florida drivers were bad until I worked in Puerto Rico.
          I thought Puerto Rican drivers were bad until I moved to Qatar.
          Takes some real shit to make Michigan look good by comparison – but it’s out there.

          • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 7:02 pm #

            Bird, I haven’t been to Qatar, but I nod in agreement about Puerto Rico. What a lunatic asylum, except the lunatics are not in buildings, but behind the wheel.

            Give Florida avocados a chance! And by your description of Michigan lumpenproletariat types, I’m not sure why you think their being heavily armed is a plus…

          • Blackbird October 26, 2021 at 3:11 pm #

            Rules,

            Lumpenproletariat are us. They may flush their spare cash down the rusty toilet bowl into the cracked and collapsing septic tank in pursuit of more ink and weed. They may turn their minds into a festering strip club of pornographic country hip hop. But they know who the enemy is. It has been shocking to me – in a good way – to see how many of these Young Confederates (20’s and 30’s – the lost generation) of the Frozen Clusterfuck know that the Plandemic is a depopulation/control/surveillance scam that they intend to answer with, well… a serious lack of cooperation. And they know guns. They depend upon them. The hills are alive, with the sound of gunfire. (Actually, it’s archery season in the woods right now – another 3 weeks for rifle.) Not a lot of accidental shootings up here. Catch a bullet? Maybe it’s time take down those rainbow and BLM flags (I’ve only seen one north of my location) and move downstate.

            I’ll probably be seeking occasional riverine refugia during hurricane season, so let’s see how those Florida guacs handle a fajita.

          • Blackbird October 26, 2021 at 4:44 pm #

            We should have set Puerto Rico free back around ’61. They’d have pissed off Cuba and got themselves invaded. The cuisine would have suffered, but in the long run they’d have been better off.

      She pauses to get a clear sight on her long bow, drawn, from the roof of the hospital, aiming down the river valleys, the geography of her body, rivers of blood flow in her veins. Lets arrow fly, lead tipped, feather and bone, bamboo shaft still true.
      On Veinticinco de Mayo, in a silver coloured place, after the marrow had been sucked, before the war, during the seige, a dog headed human breast fed the welp, a humanoid baby still, in appearance at least.
      But there is still something ticking over there, the flip phone stealth, riotous tv to cover the sounds of life crying for itself.
      And the aim is true, cuts the air like a knife beside a dewy matte laden cheek, right through the papers that don’t exist, through the phone that proves one way or another, and up into the labrynth of the hive mind, piercing newly plumped buttocks, another head, this time a pig human hybrid, tangoing as espresso wafts up ftom a gutter.

      Still the arrow flies, now straight through the heart of the beast.

      Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear, but those who deny what comes from him do

      Fortunate those that stop to meditate. Fortunate those that are lead by the Mother. Glory be to the Eternal one.

          Rulo, your writing and the graffiti took me to a very cool place, a sci fi become reality at the end of the world. I was going for Borges, veered off into , and my lawn is carpeted with those mush in spring and fall. Have never tried them but have dried a few.
          That was quite the dive! Keep sharing plse & thnx.

          Do you feel you were born for this time? That everything culminates here, all your experience, angst, ideas & beliefs.

          I have been the loon in my family since day 1. Now they’re jabbed or dead, and the jabbed seem to have entered that ‘forced delusion’ some seers speak of. It’s awful to see realized.

      Rulo,

      Thank you so much for the time and care you put into that extensive travel-culture essay. Most enjoyable.

      Your mother sounds like a remarkable woman. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

      The Independence Day monument is inspiring!

      I really enjoyed your presentation of actual experiences mixed with Argentina’s history, with a further admixture of vivid dialogue from those you met or know.

      I wish Juan Filloy was still alive to detail Covid World in an epic novel. His take, I’m sure, would be both lacerating and heartbreaking.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 7:32 pm #

        Thank you, Soul. I remember you are a fan of Filloy – he’s still on my “to read” list and I will get to him, but my mother was a fan of his too, back when she could still read. I really need to check out his work.

    • Paula D October 25, 2021 at 4:07 pm #

      That was a beautiful piece of writing and the photos are also interesting.
      It amazes me how similar the propaganda and the swallowing of same, is in the US, Canada, Europe and now I see, Buenos Aires. They are all following the same script.
      Coincidence? Incompetence? I think not.
      Thank you for sharing.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 7:35 pm #

        Thanks, Paula. Yes, it’s one big stage now, isn’t it? It’s a play, every place has a role to play, and cannot stray from that role. We’re all actors following a script. Who writes the script?

    • BackRowHeckler October 25, 2021 at 5:02 pm #

      Heartfelt and beautifully written, Rulo. We have Argentinian friends made the Spanish Society we belong to (more or less a social club) and I certainly intend to bring this to their attention.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 25, 2021 at 7:43 pm #

        Thank you, Heckler. I remember you have a Spanish wife. Man, that’s one cute accent they have over there. What part of Spain? The Spanish side of my family were grandma from Castilla, grandpa from Galicia. I’m glad I could visit those places back when travel was easy. Getting on a plane and going to another country has gotten very, very tricky, esp without the shots.

        I understand why Argies, and really any other Spanish speakers would join a club where our language is spoken. I miss speaking my native language terribly. In South FL, of course I could interact with Hispanics often – North FL is a different story. I read, but it’s not the same. My wife has accomplished much towards mastering the language, but she’s not there yet, not really fluent, so after a while it gets frustrating and I switch back to English.

        This same longing for a few words with another native Spanish speaker happened to me ages ago in Israel, when I was a volunteer in a kibbutz there. A guy from Madrid showed up one day. I became friends with him even though he was a trainwreck, a heroin addict trying to kick the habit, and constantly drinking, getting in fights – I just wanted to speak Spanish after a long time without.

        Do you speak Spanish yourself?

    • Islander October 26, 2021 at 12:08 am #

      Rulo, I read your blog post on your trip back to Buenos Aires.

      Really enjoyed it. So much there.

      Some long quotes were by people unidnetified. Maybe family members?

      Your description of the constant reliance on “devices” is disheartening.
      I have a feeling I will never travel again!

      At least your friend slipped the noose a few times by using his flip phone instead of the “allegedly smart phone.”

      Loved the photos of the old, elegant architecture.

      Yes, not your US back yard.

      I hope your mother has good caregivers. Is it possible for them to arrange Zoom visits?

      I guess you have an avocado grove in Florida. I look forward to future posts, if you provide a link here.

      • Rulo Deschamps October 27, 2021 at 5:15 pm #

        Islander, glad you enjoyed it. The long quotes are from friends, acquaintances. Zoom visits: no, technology stresses out my mother – and me too. But I talk to her on the phone every day. Always the same conversation: the birds, the weather, the view from her window.

  12. JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 10:30 am #

    Yes, yes and yes.

    The interest rising each year is clobbering the image of a budget for the government.

    Every missing dollar on the expenditures side is “borrowed from the Fed”. IOW, another dollar is printed with no backing from anything.

    Borrowing means that someday it will be repaid. Does anyone in their right mind believe a single dollar of the debt will ever be repaid?

    So who are the creditors who are getting screwed? ID them and you will find the vanguard of the descent into oblivion.

    My guess has always been, the older Boomers when they really start drawing on their retirements.

    • JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 10:36 am #

      For Hardrock

      FYI

      The greatest threat right now is the Feds response to Biden’s idiotic spending spree. If we start, already happening, to inflate everything, ie start printing a majority of our “revenue”, the only tool the Fed has is to raise interest rates. They do? The federal government goes belly up.

      Could be some ignorant economist has convinced the PTB that we can inflate our way out of $28 trillion in debt. Hahahahahaha.

    • tresho October 25, 2021 at 12:17 pm #

      “Does anyone in their right mind believe a single dollar of the debt will ever be repaid?” Technically portions of this debt are repaid every time a piece of debt paper (Treasury bonds, notes, etc.) matures and is paid off. Unfortunately this “pay off” is always following by the issuance of ever larger amounts of more paper that will mature at some time and will need “paying off.”
      None in his right mind believes that the US national debt will ever go to zero. At best this debt will at some point become irrelevant.

      • JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 1:51 pm #

        To become irrelevant, it’s creditors must agree.

        I believe in the Jewish community, debts are reset to zero every seven years, a Mosaic law.

        Right? How would that sit in America right now.

      • Paula D October 25, 2021 at 4:15 pm #

        Since all money in the US is created by debt, backed by the Fed and ultimately, the full faith and credit of the government, wiping out the debt would wipe out the money supply.
        It hasn’t been done since Andrew Jackson, and doing it then plunged the US into a 20 year depression, as I recall.
        Ain’t nobody wants that.
        Only switching to a non-debt-based monetary system could possibly fix the paying-off-the-debt problem, but then you’d still have the depletion of resources problem to deal with.
        I think our ruling overlords have their own plan, which they call the Great Reset.
        I don’t think we’re going to like that either.

    Ah, San Francisco. On my last visit there, in 2016, I recalled the appetizers were priced like entrees and the homeless, prone on the sidewalk, were so thick in some places it was like a game of hopscotch. For color, here’s an excerpt from my journal from that trip:

    “This city has mental illness to spare, no doubt about that. And desperation. This morning as I waited for my bus I witnessed another first as a rather grimy, deheveled dude got off the bus, nuzzled up to the nearest garbage can, grunted and proceeded to empty his bladder. Right there near Union Square, in the busiest part of the city. Signs and wonders.”

    I can’t imagine how bad things are there now, gripped with the Rona and Woke viruses. I’m glad I live on the opposite coast. It might be just far enough away.

  15. MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 10:37 am #

    Much thanks to you, James, for yet another excellent article. Happy Monday and good morning to all.

    I think it’s apparent that the clown show administration (let’s not forget Cacklin’ Kamala, who they seem to be trying to hide from the public), consisting of Wokie freaks and grifters, is doing itself in. It would be tragic if we had to go down with it.

    But, do we?

    As James and others have predicted, I am seeing news of emerging communities and technologies outside of Big Corporate, Silicon Valley’s & Big Pharma’s clutches. And I am seeing naturopathy make a come-back, putting people more in direct control of their own health. I am seeing an alternative school of thought to the mainstream establishment’s ‘fear everything and if you’re good we’ll keep you safe’ bullshit. You can only keep people afraid for so long.

    I’m seeing people creating alternatives to getting their kids educated, outside our current government-run crappy system. I’ve just seen an article about ranchers creating new small local meat processing plants. There’s a real trend toward local and community based ways of doing commerce.

    Every bizarre stance the Jo Jo McGhoul & Co. administration takes is a tyrannical one, and none of it has anything to do with health or safety. Throwing people out of their jobs for refusing an experimental ‘therapy’ is not pro-health, it’s an assault. Holding up ships from delivering goods we need is not for our health or safety. It’s deliberate punishment.

    It should be apparent with that beyond-cynical selection of Rachel Levine to such a position of prominence, making him the new face of ‘healthcare.’ What an utter joke! But maybe appropriate as a Big Pharma WEF puppet.

    They have created a big ridiculous farce, and dare us to call their bluff. The Big Shit Show Circus will continue as long as people pretend it’s serious. I can’t imagine that will last for much longer before the tent collapses.

      Thankyou, Mary, for your optimism. Indeed, there are reasons to hope. I just can’t see how they can keep this China flu game going forever – especially with even the lefties turning on Fauci. And one of the few good things about this insanity is that it has forced us to have a good long look at who we are and where we are going. Ironically, we may be building back better – but in a way that will infuriate Herr Schwab and Co. God bless for another ahead on the crazy roller coaster of life!

          I got through it.

      I see ads for a pain reliever with many celebs hawking them, see Larry Elder, that will eliminate all sorts of pain in three weeks. Not a mention of what the miracle is comprised of.

      I see big Pharma hawking pills that have such horrific side effects that they should all be banned. One to five percent of bad side effects during trials do not seem to matter.

      I will tell you what today is, the resurrection of the snake oil salesman. The promise of the cure for everything.

      Into a public that has been stupidified beyond belief. Well, as evidenced now, no longer beyond belief.

    About the businesses getting robbed blind. There are a number of theories.

    One is that Amazon pushed for the legislation to remove its competition.

    Another is that even drugstores have been going the way of no physical stores, you order ahead an pick it up yourself, or have it shipped.

    Yet another theory- stores that pull out of high-crime areas get criticized for being racist.

    So, after a period of time of astounding losses, even your SJW types have to concede that these places have no choice but to quit serving the urban population.

      • tresho October 25, 2021 at 12:24 pm #

        “Anyone that tries to force their way in” Self-service stores are a recent invention. “Store” used to refer only to a warehouse where goods were “stored” pending distribution to buyers. There would be a hatch or window where a buyer would make a request, the seller’s agent would retrieve the item from the “store” of items and collect the price. Buyers never got to wander through the “store” until fairly recently. I suspect this will start up again when self-service stores go out of existence, as they must where property rights are ignored. At that point buyers will have to run the gauntlet of street robbers as they try to get home with their purchases.

        • Islander October 26, 2021 at 12:48 am #

          I well remember the old First National, on Main Street.

          It was a narrow store but high, with a wooden counter between the customers and the employees. You told the lady what you wanted, and she fetched it for you. All the boxes, such as cereal, were on the hgih shelves. She had a long tool with a grabber on the end with which she dislodged the box of Kix, or Bisquick, or Wheatena, and dexterously caught it when it tumbled down from a high shelf.

          Your purchases were lined up on the counter to be rung up on the old cash register. You put them in your own bag.

          I dimly recall the transition to supermarkets where you wandered around and chose your own items, even produce. I don’t think Americans will happily give up the I-pick model. But who knows?

      Those rights effectively ceased to exist with the advent of the income tax, at which point the federal government asserted a claim to be informed of every monetary transaction of every person. If you buy a stick of gum at Quick Trip, it generates “papers.” Quick Trip has to report it. When your employer pays you, the federal government must be informed.

      The income tax did away with almost all rights along those lines over a hundred years ago.

    We had a nice period of time where we got used to the concept of “old-school punishment” for wayward leaders being “outdated and barbaric”.

    Perhaps the stockades need a good dusting off.

    The question is who will claim the authority to roll them out? And what will they do to gain public support for those actions?

    Personally, I’d stop short of the gallows, though people used to be hung out to dry for much less than these incompetent, ill-intentioned jackasses. And you know what? It stopped other aspiring jackasses from acting that way…for a while, at least. And then a dust-off would take place again.

    I could settle for a good old-fashioned televised pillorying, and perhaps a rail to ride out on, covered in feathers. Then jail. Real jail.

      I like Blackbird’s “Elites Zoo” idea. I think it’s called something else, but you get the idea.

      Sort of a Big Brother reality show setup, where we can watch the elites interact with each other as they go about their days in a viewable cage.

      Think of the ensuing hilarity!

      • Blackbird October 25, 2021 at 1:17 pm #

        I called it the Dictator Zoo when it was smaller and more focused. I don’t know what to call the logically much-expanded version. “Plutocrat Zoo” just doesn’t have that – whaddyacallit…

        I know that if the opportunity ever arose (it won’t) it would be difficult to restrain ourselves from drawing and quartering, impaling, and hanging from lampposts the evildoers to whom we have sold our lives for a can of (expired) beans. But imagine the fun – and educational value – of putting these shitbirds in cages, impoverished and under constant surveillance, and allow them to live a normal life with their fellow miscreants – washing dishes, doing laundry, etc. Taking your grandkids to the nearest Dictator House and watching the joy on their faces as they add more pickle juice to the jar containing babbling 175 year-old Billy Gates head. That’s a future I can get behind.

          I think forced game night would be really popular. Especially if they were forced to play Risk or something. I would thing things could become bombastic pretty quickly. “Tranny Night” could be fun too, but they might enjoy that.

    Everything we see today is all part of someone’s agenda. From Agenda 2021 to the Great Reset, all part of the same program, conspiracy, agenda, whatever. It’s not enough the great banking families own everything, everyone else must own less then nothing. First fiat currency, then credit cards, next no cash at all. Anyone who is in debt owns less then nothing. Even when your house is paid in full, try not paying your property tax to let you know who really owns your house. Fourth Turning anyone. I believe we are at the point where it is way too late to drain the swamp. It’s time to flush the toilet, and when it plugs, then we all get to become plumbers. Afterwards, I’m hoping for a “Great Enlightenment” or even a “World Made By Hand”, but looking around today, I’m leaning towards a “Mad Max” or even “The Mongol Hordes” type scenario. We are definitely living in interesting times..

      The US will be just many different economic and ethnic group fighting each other for what will be left of the spoils.

      Sorta like the family sitting around the lawyers table waiting to get the will read.

      Then finding out that the guy spent all of his money and they were responsible for the accrued debt he left.

      “Even when your house is paid in full, try not paying your property tax to let you know who really owns your house. ” In the 1930s many counties in the USA had property taxes due that landowners simply could not pay. Instead of foreclosing on what would have been the bulk of property in the entire county (which would not have solved the county’s need for revenue) some counties issued “scrip” — basically their own version of paper money — a guarantee that the scrip would eventually be redeemed in cash for the face value. The scrip was used to pay county employees, the electric company, and other items the county had to pay someone for. AFAICT the scrip was paid off eventually when revenues resumed.
      The book “The Worst Hard Times” tells a story of a school teacher in the Dust Bowl who taught public school students for nothing, for years, in order to keep her school system functioning. She was never reimbursed. Fortunately she had an extended family that kept her housed and fed. In her old age she was highly honored for her sacrifice.
      Those were different times.

    ‘…already a rotten system ever more incapable of turning out citizens who can…write a coherent sentence….”

    And it appears in the U.S., and many places abroad, ever more incapable of a coherent thought.

    I was in a hospital waiting room today. Masks were worn, and temperature checks at the door, OK, no surprise. But there also was a woman holding a spray bottle and a rag. As each person vacated a seat in the waiting room – this woman sprayed down and cleaned the whole seat.

    Again. And again. This is the voodoo the medical business is showing its customers: ritualistic, irrational washing of leather seats and plastic arm rests. Actions with no scientific basis. Do the doctors running the hospital believe this? Or, would it be worse if they know it is senseless, but find it desirable to wave such shamanistic feathers of futility at their customers?

    • tresho October 25, 2021 at 12:40 pm #

      “Do the doctors running the hospital believe this? ” There’s no business like show business, and you have to keep the customers satisfied. Those medical degrees and government-issued licenses to practice medicine and nursing are also based on beliefs. A physician who showed up for work dressed as a shaman of the 3000 BC era would be kicked off the premises of any modern hospital.

        My uncle was a genuine “armorer” whose job was making sure the ammo and other munitions on fighter planes were fully stocked and operational as intended. He saw his buddies shot dead and blown to pieces due to enemy action. He told me many stories about his war experiences over the years. His willingness to tell his stories may explain his lack of PTSD for the rest of his life. The only reaction of anguish I ever saw on his face was during a story when he was at the controls of a parked fighter plane on his airbase’s firing range. The planes were regularly wheeled out, propped up, aimed at distant targets, and the armorers fired the guns to make sure they worked properly. He was distracted for a moment, and then fired the planes wing machine guns without checking that they were clear of unwanted obstructions. One of his assistants was standing a foot or so away from the muzzle blasts. It was uncle’s job to make sure this didn’t happen, and he had failed in his duty. I could read uncle’s distress on his face. The assistant probably had tinnitus and some loss of hearing afterward, other than that, no harm was done. Uncle finished the war with 3 chevrons and 2 rockers on his sleeve. He had served long enough that he should have had 3 chevrons and rockers on his sleeve, but he had once mis-counted the bullets he had loaded on his plane and was denied that promotion. Someone went after him and counted his work.

          tresho, thanks for that. I’ve read that most WW2 vets would not talk about their experiences. It’s interesting that in your uncle’s case that’s not true, and in fact, sharing the stories was a sort of catharsis, beneficial to mental health.

          My grandpa would freely tell us young uns his war stories, some of them quite harsh, and he was a happy and well adjusted person, too.

            What I’ve found about vets – Vietnam and later – is that the more they did, the less they talk about it. And when they do talk, it’s more likely to be about hilarious clusterfuckery or heart-warming camaraderie than Ramboesque tales of the heroics of war.

If it’s not there, the loony neolibs can pretend it never happened, and if you try to show them an article from another source they can point and screech “fake news!” like the brain-dead zombies they are.

          I’ve done a lot of research on terrain theory and it’s more likely (in all the cases) that there was some other pathogen/poison released on populations, and/or new technology that makes people sick.

          It’s a valid theory and of course that was THE theory up until the new age ‘science’ controlled by big pharma and the healthcare industrial complex cornered the market. They couldn’t have us curing ourselves by being healthy and resisting getting ill, could they?

      Liz: UK Daily Mail, a conservative rag, but still the best selling popular newspaper in the country, is running a headline about an Aussie actress fighting for her life after taking the AZ jab. Of course, they have to include the “extremely rare” blood clot that is attacking her, but it’s great they are at least covering this. And the comments are 90% “extremely rare? Right!” responses. And idiot BoJo has just said we can’t have our Xmases if we don’t get the third jab. Sometimes I think these people are just stupid after all.

      This was nothing surprising to me as I used to work for an animal rights organization. Some of our campaigns were on animals used for lab testing. It’s horrifying.

      • Blackbird October 25, 2021 at 1:40 pm #

        No surprise here either as I used to work in an animal testing lab for an evil monolithic transnational chemical company. We had muted beagles too. Although I left 26 years ago I’m sure they still have muted beagles – as well as muted employees.

        • Jarek October 25, 2021 at 2:06 pm #

          Remember the famous article written by the lab tech? The next morning he was going to go in and break the dog’s leg – for the third or forth time? And how the dog was always happy to see him since he was the dog’s only “friend”. He knew it would greet him with a wagging tail the next morning.

          Was it a beagle? I’ve never heard if the guy quit or went thru with it.

          • abbybwood October 25, 2021 at 2:18 pm #

            They use beagles because they are so sweet.

          • Blackbird October 25, 2021 at 2:29 pm #

            Never read it. That’s what I count on you for.

            Probably a beagle. For some reason that breed seems to be specially selected – probably even bred – for research, like F344 and Sprague-Dawley rats.

            One of my (self-assigned) roles in the lab was as rat comforter. They knew me and trusted me. After all I was the guy who came by regularly to collect their blood, bile, piss, and shit.
            They’d climb up my sleeve, sit on my shoulder, tickle my ear. I’d hold them lightly, rub the base of their skull, and gently tilt their head back. Our fancy PhDs tended to cause the rats anxiety which made it difficult to force the tube of radio-labeled herbicide down their throats.

          • Alzaebo October 25, 2021 at 6:50 pm #

            I had heard that they used ball peen hammers, hitting their legs up to 200 times. “Researching painkillers” on debarked beagles.

            It was that lab and ones like it is why PETA was formed. The pharma and Big Vaccine rackets are run by demons.

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 8:31 pm #

            Abby is correct. They use beagles because of their sweetness.

            Why people don’t understand that the people working in these labs are sociopaths or psychopaths is beyond me.

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 8:32 pm #

            I volunteered with a nonprofit called Animal Rescue Corps for awhile, and they would bust up puppy mills and rescue the dogs, but they also once freed monkeys and beagles from a lab that was going to put them all down. Macaques and beagles. That was quite something.

          • Blackbird October 26, 2021 at 11:33 am #

            So Mary, am I a sociopath or psychopath? (I know the answer, I’m just checking your diagnostic skills.)

            Since I haven’t led naive young lab rats to a calm and peaceful death since May of ’95, can I claim to be “in recovery”?

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 26, 2021 at 5:09 pm #

            @Blackbird, I haven’t seen any psychotic behavior from you, no. You also have not said what you thought about those animals being tortured, whether it bothered you, or didn’t, or you actually liked it.

          • Blackbird October 27, 2021 at 11:17 am #

            Mary,

            Were the rats (and occasional rabbits) I worked with actually “tortured”? I would have to say “no”. Generally I conducted surgery on them – jugular vein or bile duct cannulations, under anesthesia. We fed them radio-labeled compounds (C14) to see where the substance of interest (generally pesticides) went – whether it lodged in organs or was excreted, and also sometimes to determine how test compounds were altered by metabolism. “Torture”, or any kind of severe discomfort would alter their behavior and metabolism and create an uncontrollable variable.

            Their life as study animals was certainly not worse, and I’d say substantially better, than those chickens, pigs, and cattle on CAFOs being raised for our dining pleasure. Of course at the end of the study, the animals were “sacrificed” (poor choice of euphemisms), dismantled, their organs homogenized and analyzed for C14 concentration. Pretty much the same thing happens in a slaughterhouse, but with less precision, more mess, and more trauma for the animal.

            F344 and Sprague-Dawley rats (and other breeds of other animals) are bred specifically for use as lab animals, just as other breeds of animals are bred for food, or work, or to be “pets”. Their life has one purpose. The lab rat’s eating, drinking, pooping, and pissing appeared to be unaffected by their surgery or their confinement.

            Of course the question could be asked, “Do we really need new and better pesticides?” I know that a lot of people who would answer “no” to that question hire lawn care companies to make their lot look pretty, kill ants that invade the house with anydamnthing that’ll kill ’em, spray stuff on their bodies so other forces of nature will not inconvenience them…

            Learning to do surgery – great experience. Discovering the pathways through which compounds are metabolized, stored or excreted was fascinating. Knowing that the rat sitting on my shoulder, tickling my ear was born to be killed – well, I don’t see anyone crying over those chickens coated with eleven herbs and spices. I know I did all I could to make that rat’s surgery as painless and error-free as possible, and it’s short life as comfortable as possible.

            And the answer: I’d have to say a definite inclination toward sociopathology (estranged from society) rather than psychopathology (estranged from one’s self). But I’m still saner than anyone else around here – and then some. Just sayin’.

            “the dog was always happy to see him”

            Ack! That brought back a real bad memory I have, about these Asians that farm dog pelts. They showed this guy beat a dog on its head, then proceed to skin it alive. And then they showed what was left of the dog’s head, as it blinked and looked left-to-right, while still alive… Most horrifying thing I ever saw.

            David Pakman (Argentinian American):

            “Texas Senator Ted Cruz has been called out brutally by Michael Gunner, the Chief Minister for the Northern Territory of Australia. Cruz did his best to criticize vaccine mandates in northern Australia with public-facing workers being subject to a $5,000 fine if they don’t get at least their first shot by November 13th.

            The Texas senator posted to Twitter, “I love the Aussies. Their history of rugged independence is legendary; I’ve always said Australia is the Texas of the Pacific. The Covid tyranny of their current government is disgraceful & sad. Individual liberty matters. I stand with the people of #Australia.”

            This promoted Michael Gunner to respond to Cruz in a statement that read in part, “hey @tedcruz . . . nearly 70,000 Texans have tragically died from COVID. There have been zero deaths in the Territory. Did you know that? . . . We have been in lock down for just eight days in 18 months. Our businesses and schools are all open. Did you know that? We don’t need your lectures, thanks mate. You know nothing about us.”

            This was a brutal smackdown of Ted Cruz from an unlikely source, one that may leave Cruz booking a trip to Cancun so he can try to recover from it.</i"

            No, in fact, I don’t support mandatory vaccinations, not for this or anything else. It’s your choice, but there are consequences. For example, I have been REQUIRED to have certain vaccinations (e.g. yellow fever before visiting Brazil) because that’s a government’s right to demand or require for entry. If I refuse that requirement, I don’t get a visa – action –> consequence, but you already know that.

            And, laughably, the “women’s bodily sovereignty” argument from the likes of you is a huge red herring.

            R.L. You are comparing
            1) getting a vaccination in order to obtain a visa to visit a foreign country… to
            2) getting a vaccine passport allowing me to leave my house and travel around town, maybe to a grocery store.

            Only a demented totalitarian would think they are the same thing. Only someone who embraces the deep state Orwellian dystopia would disrespect human rights as you do with such satanic relish.

            Also the vaccines for tropical diseases are neither gene altering nor labelled experimental. They are time tested, not warp speed.

            Insolently dismissing a point is not the same as refuting it, I refer to your statement; “And, laughably, the “women’s bodily sovereignty” argument from the likes of you is a huge red herring.”

            You also didn’t address the draconian lockdowns in Melbourne and Sydney.

            You are not a skilled debater; you are a flippant troll, the master of the drive by trolling. And considering your hatred for human freedom, you are deeply on the dark side. May you get all you deserve.

    Part of Jerm Warfare’s rundown (he’s very worth following, IMHO):

    “As investigator Whitney Webb recently noted, Covid propaganda is beginning to pivot towards climate change propaganda (which I’ll get to in another War Report).

    It’s not by accident.

    Various “movers and shakers”, such as the World Economic Forum and United Nations, are the controlling hand of the pivot.

    The last 18 months has been a deliberate totalitarian campaign of

    – demoralisation (masks, social distancing, isolation, curfews);

    – destabilisation (lockdowns, mass joblessness, non-stop PCR tests with misleading results, endless vaccines, vaccine mandates, segregation);

    – crisis (“deadly pandemic” via nonstop propaganda, requiring the governments to save us);

    – normalisation (fear of healthy people, loyalty to the state, blind trust of corporate media, mass censorship of dissenting views).

    The above (bold) bullet points come from former KGB operative, Yuri Bezmenov, who – during the 1980s – outlined how subversion has been used as a successful tool of propaganda throughout history, and how it’s used even more successfully in Western countries because the general populations are unsuspecting.”

      After he blows you away with the facts of economic life circa 2005, suggest Too much Magic, a 2011 update. His prophetic accuracy is amazing.

      Life in the Long Emergency.is a little different, using narrative story telling from interviews to show the impact on certain folks. Thwack was one.

      I would like to see a piece on where to go from here.

        If you can find it, JHK did a TV show with two other guys called The Prophets of Doom. One of the three said water was no. One, JHK of course was Peak Oil and the third was AI and it’s effects on the economy.

        Well presented!

        Well, I doubt I’ll be all that shocked. I have mentioned what first shocked me was reading “Radical Evolution” in a class I took a few years back.

    The PTB never thought the internet would bite them in the ass. The last event they got away with was 911. With COVID, those bubble dwellers still thought they controlled the narrative 100%. Trump deserves all the credit for busting that monopoly and waking up those who still believed the “ official narrative “ just in the Nick of time.

    • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 1:12 pm #

      If Trump threw a wrench in any of this, then good on him. I didn’t see much of that. I do recall his seemingly genuine look of surprise when Pompeo said this is a ‘live exercise’ and Trump responded, under his breath, “well you should have told us that.”

      • Beryl of Oyl October 25, 2021 at 1:17 pm #

        Pompeo, given his background, would have been well aware of the importance of checking out the background of someone like Dr. Fauci, and could not plead ignorance of how to go about it.

        Yet that guy stayed on that task force.

        • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 1:33 pm #

          Well Pompeo is a WEP puppet psycho too, no doubt. To get up and admit that we were in a live exercise? And everyone ignored it?

          He admitted Covid19 is a LIVE EXERCISE.

          Of course he’s in on it.

      • Blackbird October 25, 2021 at 1:50 pm #

        Whispered, “Well you should have told us that.” That’s how Trump handled the Plandemic. Yup, he’s on our side, I really believe that…

      The last event they got away with was 911.

      Boston Marathon – 2013
      Nashville Election Evidence of Fraud Bombing – 2020
      Jan. VI – 2021

      You need get out less.

      They knew this would happen. They knew that they could leave the internet quasi-free to divide & conquer plus have a handy-dandy database of who thinks what.

  36. JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 1:32 pm #

    I have been bitching for awhile about the lack of data and information on the crud.

    Why do the surges occur, why are they periodic, they seem to show up every six months. Why does the south go first, then the north follow?

    How does Covid compare to the flu, or even the common cold?

    AND, a new thought, why do we not have the crud with us all the time, level loaded? What makes surges go away, where do the lulls come from?

    The CDC and NIH have shown nothing!!!

    A report from Germany has shown more information on what is going on with the immune system’s reaction to the vaccine, than our own multi billion dollar.health groups. We need that report broken down and explained. The idea of moving living nano particles sounds like a candidate for The Twilight Zone. Typical situation, release information that is unexplained and scary. I would say that the fear factor is being released from all sides.

    What are those strands and the complexes they saw?

    • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 1:34 pm #

      They muddied the waters on purpose. Because they have no virus, they only have a fear campaign, and every time it starts falling apart, they need to come up with another tactic.

      • O.G. Hawkins October 25, 2021 at 1:45 pm #

        It appears to you that they keep coming up with another tactic but, Really, this is all game-planned.

        They know what they’re doing.

      • Night Owl October 25, 2021 at 1:46 pm #

        Has anyone isolated the virus yet?

        You would think it would be rather easy to take an infected person or 1000, and get a sample.

        You would also think they would have done this before they inveted the PCR test to find it.

        The bullshit is so easy to call out, that it isn’t even fun anymore.

        • Blackbird October 25, 2021 at 1:58 pm #

          How do you create a PCR test for a virus that has not been isolated? Well, you start with an uncredentialed genius like Drosten… And you end there too.

          • Night Owl October 26, 2021 at 3:00 am #

            Drosten is more or less Germany’s Fauci. Another individual with questionable credentials (a fake doctorate for Drosten) put into a position of power by the criminals to guide health policy as they transition the country toward the Reset.

        • MaryQueen October 25, 2021 at 2:00 pm #

          Exactly. Get some volunteers. Get the ‘virus’ off of one and put it in a few. If they don’t get sick we know it’s bollox.

          Tom Cowan did a good explanation of this.

          • JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 2:17 pm #

            There have been a few superspreader wedding and family get together that the PTB have utilized to tighten down, have you seen them explained by anyone? No?

            Surprise!!!

          • JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 2:36 pm #

            Mary, remember how Walter Reed proved mosquitos carried Yellow Fever, which made Covid puny.

            He put a group of volunteers into a screened in environment to avoid the mosquitos and another group went about their business as normal

            Needless to say, the results were striking and proved his point.

            Two groups, one with proven Covid carriers and one without.

            Need a proven test procedure to catch anyone, tested daily on both sides. PCR not good enough, do blood counts or nasal smears.

            This should have been done in March of 2020.

            But I guess that would have bitten Fauci, et al in the butt.

            Then, the same test with vaxxed and unvaxxed, a four way experiment.

            That would’ve removed the doubt. It would have removed some of the fear factor, the risk aversion.

            Not with Biden in there.

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 9:20 pm #

            But JAZ, an infection from a mosquito is not a virus. So you’re comparing apples and oranges.

            Tom Cowan reviews the many many times that viruses have proven not to be contagious. At all.

            He’s not alone.

            There’s a reason there is no successful vaccine for a virus.

        • JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 2:04 pm #

          You are right.

          Here is another one.

          The mRNA in the jab makes body cell ribosomes that create copies of the s protein on the virus.

          Where the heck did the molecular model come from to design the mRNA and the protein itself?

          They? Really need to find out what all those things are in the German autopsy.

        • JohnAZ October 25, 2021 at 2:26 pm #

          Okay, Night Owl and Mary.

          No isolated virus. I actually do not understand what this mean. Does it mean that the virus does not exist? I have seen many pictures of the virus in situ, Google it, they are ubiquitous.

          Does not being isolated mean they have not been able to culture it, to grow it outside of a host. Not surprising since virus reproduction can only occur inside of a living host cell.

          Have they been able to isolate and culture any other viruses. By this logic, any virus not isolated must not exist, right?

          I wonder what other explanation their is to explain all these sick, some really sick people of things other than respiratory problems, like blood clots, or heart problems, or kidney failure? I am talking about the disease, not the vaxx.

            John…………..

            Its been in the cattle industry for ever………..

            When reports of the COVID-19 pandemic first hit the US, very few people had likely heard of coronaviruses—with some notable exceptions: “”cattle producers and their veterinarians””.

            It’s not that people involved with cattle health have any particular insight into the increasing human toll the novel coronavirus is inflicting. Rather, it’s a reflection that generations of cattle producers have recognized coronavirus as a significant cause of diarrhea in their young calves.

            A year ago, I was in the hospital for a drug screen…..

            the girl doing the screening was a farm girl from western NY.

            her thoughts on all this shit……….

            We’ve been inoculating cows for this since the 60’s.

            yep, we have.

          • WilbursHuman October 25, 2021 at 2:53 pm #

            from the article John………..

            “”There are many different versions of human and animal coronaviruses throughout the world. Many animal caretakers have probably dealt with coronavirus infections for years without realizing it. Swine producers and their vets have fought Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) Virus and (historically) Transmissible Gastroenteritis (TGE) Virus. Companion animal veterinarians recognize Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) Virus as a cause of illness in cats – all coronaviruses.

            Considering the above list, it should be apparent that the vast majority of these coronaviruses stick to their own species. No human or cross-species illnesses have resulted from bovine coronaviruses, PED, TGE, or FIP. “”

          • Night Owl October 25, 2021 at 6:18 pm #

            It means it has yet to be shown that it exists. The PCR test was created with a computer model.

            You don’t understand what this means?

            LOL.

          • Paula D October 25, 2021 at 6:32 pm #

            I think they have isolated the virus and mapped out its genome.
            That is how we know that they took a bat virus and added the furin cleavage site. I think that is the part that makes this covid virus attack humans and not bats.
            Honest virologists have said that there is no natural process by which a bat virus would evolve to attach itself to human ACE receptors.
            Therefore it had to have been done in a lab.
            They even have shown the part of the Delta virus that is different from the original virus they released in late 2019. (Unless it escaped from Ft Dietrich in July 2019, which is also possible. Then the US took it to Wuhan in the Military Games held in Nov. 2019. Four US service members were hospitalized in Wuhan with an unknown flu at that time).
            As usual when they release a psy ops, they surround it with a body of lies.

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride October 25, 2021 at 9:21 pm #

            Paula, they have not isolated the virus. Not according to the same rules as any other pathogen. They are lying.

            It has not been isolated, according to Koch’s postulates.

          • Night Owl October 26, 2021 at 2:54 am #

            “Have they been able to isolate and culture any other viruses. By this logic, any virus not isolated must not exist, right?”

            ——————————————————————————

            That is not logic, John.

            Logic is asking why a “virus” that has required us to give up freedoms and perform bizarre health rituals with no root in basic science has not been isolated when supposedly hundreds of thousands of people have had it.

            Why can’t anyone get a sample?

            Why is the only test used to “detect” the virus not capable of detecting a virus and based on a computer model of the “virus.”

            I notice that whenever I ask these basic questions, you never answer, but later reappear asking the same questions.

            LOL.

    I mean, in the big picture, fauci, covid, the Vax and a host of other issues are just small bumps in the road.

          What do you thing Build Back Better is? The Great Reset? Schwab wrote an entire book on it that was released just as the Plandemic started (which means it was written well ahead of that kickoff).

          They crash the current system because it is insolvent. Then they build it back with a digital smart grid that controls everything from what you are allowed to eat to where you are allowed to go.

          And if you don’t play ball and take your shots to get your Covid Pass (which becomes the digital ID according to the producers themselves), where do you think you will end up?

          They intend to take it all: your rights, your house, your pension, your freedom. And they have a sweet Trojan Horse called Covid-19 to do so.

            There was a quote from a top US govt. official recently that seemed to make waves even in the McMedia — something to the effect of the government being able to afford anything it wants. Was in context with the debt ceiling.

        • Kind of like how the Boy Scouts of America used the distraction of teaching young boys about “leadership skills” while grooming them for molestation? To the tune of 60,000 plaintiffs… ? Did anyone ever hear about this? The culture seems satisfied to have this dropped into the Marianas Trench of memory holes.

          Its funny, despite all the junior detectives on this blogroll, no one had any insight as to what was really going on over the prior decades. Why is that? I’m thinking its just not important to Fox News to spend on investigative reports, but instead, employ comic idiots to bloviate.

          Meanwhile the “Girl Scouts” are gearing up to sell processed junk food in their annual drive in some similarly rationalized effort (business skills?) across the country. Those hydrogenated confections: they call them “Thin mints” but I don’t think any thin people eat those. They should call them Fat Mints.

          Oh wait I GET IT NOW (all caps)…. the idea is to impress upon them the importance of marketing in advertisement and sales copy. It is an important principle of business: how to sell any kind of dog shit as long as you spray a bunch of euphemistic lies at a customer who, after hearing a few magical phrases like, “empowering” and “fundraising”, and “leadership skills” will spend any sum and eat any junk, as long as you say the magic words that create the right feeeeelings.

I imagine everybody going increasingly cashless has put a serious crimp in their little fund raising efforts, but so far they haven’t responded with the little phone attachment card scanners that are available now. Need to update their business plan I guess. I’m just surprised the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts haven’t merged already and become genderless. Aren’t single sex groups inherently sexist?

        A lot of nerve makes for more productive Free Speech.

        Mr K is not above criticism in the Public space. No one is. That’s how it works.

        Mr K does not let Pride interfere with:

        “I disagree with what you say but will defend, to my death, your right to say it.”

        In fact, Mr K literally puts his money where his mouth is as he hosts this forum that the nervy use to sometimes criticize him and his work.

        Mr K is top-notch in an era gone mad. We all know that. TruStory

          Amen, OG. It is admirable and resilient. No echo chamber this blog. I am honestly amazed at the number of times Mr Kunstler has kicked off a certain elderly National Socialist ranter (one who tipped his hand and revealed he was a cymbal-clanging, bedsheet-wearing, jumping-up-and-down-on-the-corner Hare Krishna as well) then allowing him back to comment once again (sharing his misery mostly). Vlad, Janos, Jarek, how many more monikers – and, without shame, he keeps crawling back for more. You’d think he’d be humiliated enough to go somewhere else to share his (not inconsiderable) insights, after being banned. Nope, it’s back again, under a new pseudonym.

          Commendable, Mr. K. It’s why I try to read the huge swath of comments twice a week. Never stop learning something new and intriguing.

    Golly…

    “Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease that is found in parts of the tropics, subtropics, and southern Europe. It is classified as a neglected tropical disease (NTD). Leishmaniasis is caused by infection with Leishmania parasites, which are spread by the bite of phlebotomine sand flies.”

    I was Wrong.

    I know that you will get a kick out of me saying that. You accused me of trying to prove infallibility while I assured you that I am far, far from that. I am merely a lowly sinner – lowest of the low.

    Anyway, I was Wrong. It happens. When it does and it is proven legit, I am the first to recognize and aplogize as neccessary. Growing up here on The Prairies, we “man up” as Right trumps Pride.

    At least we used. Back in the day …

    Anyway, the La Palma tsunami that I Believe is coming soon will not hit Buffalo or even Rochester. Not even close.

    Last night I heard of a crest wave of 30-50 metres that would deluge the Eastern coast of North America for 5 to 45 minutes and would obliterate everything 12-15 miles from shore or perhaps a little further inland.

    Rochester can get back to worrying about vax mandates on high ground.

      The possibility of a large land slip in the Azores or Canary Islands has been thought about for a while. Tsunamis in the Pacific have been traced to big chunks falling into the ocean in Hawaii. I have seen pictures of hills near the island edge in the Canary’s with wide splits in them.

    Can’t you Scots run a simple Nazi program without bunglin’ it up?

    • GreenAlba October 25, 2021 at 6:56 pm #

      SNP in a nutshell, OG. Although when comparing with Borisland, there’s probably not much to choose between them in terms of malice, with a froth of shambolic ineptitude.

      It was a comfort to me at one time that incompetence and bungling were a slight brake on manifest evil, but even when it’s 2 steps forward and 1 step back, the destination is the same. Although there’s something to be said for a bit more time, in the hope that more people will see what’s going on elsewhere, or even here. And just for a few more nice days when you can look outside and pretend it’s just a bad dream, if only for half an hour.

  44. In other news from continental Europe:

    “Before the pandemic, there were 10.3 new diesel cars registered for every electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle. Today, that ratio has decreased to just 1.3.

    In September, low emission vehicles posted a monthly growth of 44%, to 221,500 units, while the registrations of diesels decreased by 51%, to 167,000 units.”

    Amazingly VW is still making diesels. Recall that they contracted a New Mexico company to subject monkeys to diesel emissions in roughly the same way we subjected human beings (including puppies) to the sooty exhaust for decades. Ultimately it came out that VW was pushing a Final Solution in the form of PM2.5 and NOx on us all (that is, the few of us who huff-n-Puff on a bicycle next to trafiic) by baking in some emissions testing avoidance programming in their shitty cars.

    They were fined all of $1 billion… chump change for the conglomerate, which sees $67 billion in annual revenue. Good thing they chose Monkeys as test subjects. Had they chosen the far more popular and charismatic puppies, I imagine they would have been liquidated entirely.\

    A dynamic has been unfolding in Scotland involving Green Alba and her doctor husband. The same dynamic is playing out here in Central, NJ where I am Green Alba and my wife is GA’s husband. Forwarded CFN links are deleted unread.

    My wife just pulled away in her car with her brother Peter headed somewhere for the two of them to get their “boosters.”

    I imagined tomorrow’s news headline as follows:

    “Peter passes, Bo cries, Q. breathes sigh of relief”

    • I’ve taken two Moderna shots already. A booster is just more of the same, so how can I lose? I am a survivor, with the Eye of the Tiger.

        Four shots gotta be better than three… and five even better than four…

        In the final analysis, I look at it like this: the risk of severe outcomes from Covid is very small. The short-term risk from the vaccines also appears very small.

        The difference is that while the risk of even getting infected with Covid is quite small *, the risk of suffering negative effects from a treatment with no long-term safety profile is quite high, should those effects be waiting down the road aways, if one willingly takes two and three and four shots. I’m more than willing to admit the possibility than no such effects exist; time will tell but the point is exactly that: no one knows the long-term scenario.

        That being the case, much more than a depopulation scheme, this vaccine mania looks to me like a typical money-making scheme, sort of like war-profiteering with no war and a much more fearful population. The pharma players will take their chances with side effects and lawsuits down the road because all that is just a tax write-off somewhere in a possible future and the money is on the table in the actual here and now.

        Anybody who wants to be a participant in a fear-based marketing campaign and a willing dupe for pharma profits, go for it. For me, Occam’s Razor applies and no amount of threats from a shuffling mannequin or anecdotal accounts of the unvaxxed and their untimely demises or end-of-the-world-overflowing-hospital pieces written by flagellants in the Covid cult has the octane to supersede that standard.

        *the peer-reviewed study in Nature in January showing T-cell responses to SARS-2 peptides in 81% of those studied is a pretty good indication of the level of pre-existing immunity that was already out there in the population

        • Paula D October 26, 2021 at 12:27 pm #

          Agree, except that there will be no lawsuits.
          They have already been immunized from lawsuits, with no boosters needed.

      • GreenAlba October 25, 2021 at 4:39 pm #

        Funny you should say that because yesterday I went into the kitchen with my iPad mini and sat down at the table, where my husband was sitting, and started listening (for about the fourth time!) to Mike Yeadon’s Planet Lockdown interview.

        Very passive aggressive, but there we are.

        After 15 minutes, he decided the dog needed a walk, so I helpfully put it on pause so that he wouldn’t miss anything. Then he went to read in the bedroom (small flat – bedroom is across the hall from the kitchen) so I helpfully turned the volume up until it was done. No comment.

        However, today I sent something or other, and he said he didn’t want any more emails of that kind because it was distressing.

        I said, of course, being distressed is much worse than being genocided, with your blood and brain hijacked on the way.

        But I said ‘over and out’, so I’m honour bound to send nothing else. I’ll have to leave it till he gets his booster – I’ve already warned him that I won’t share a room with him for at least a month after he gets it, so he’d better wait until after Christmas, unless it’s done by mid-November. I read that they’re proposing making the boosters 5 months after the second jab, instead of 6 months.

        Imagine that.

        • GreenAlba October 25, 2021 at 4:54 pm #

          Re Christmas, we used to pull my mother’s leg over her habit of adding ‘if we’re spared’ to absolutely any statement about the future.

          So, consider an ‘if we’re spared’ to be included in that, given the circumstances. 🙂

          • hmuller October 26, 2021 at 11:51 pm #

            GA, Your husband is a doctor, right? Doesn’t he have a scientific rebuttal to Dr Yeadon? TPTB keep telling us to “trust the science”. Yet apparently, we’re not allowed to talk about the science. They demand total trust and obedience. Who rationally thinks they have earned it?

            Many of my relatives have taken the jab. I don’t nag them about it. Everyone dies eventually and the universe goes on. And some people apparently would rather die than admit they made a mistake. So be it.

          • GreenAlba October 27, 2021 at 8:42 am #

            HM, I’ve sent him heaps of links from whistleblower doctors and scientists and he refuses to listen to them. Perhaps he just blanked out Mike Yeadon.

            As others have pointed out, this is beyond logic, it is about psychology. I just happen to be logical (he has occasionally, in the past, accused me of ‘over-thinking’ things and ‘intellectualising’ everything. Maybe. We are who we are. So, even when I was not convinced of what I later accepted was going on, I was trawling scientific papers for information, not realising at that point just how corrupt the scientific establishment had become (I worked for a major health science publisher for 20 years, but in their books division, not their journals division. Text-/reference books are not subject to the same pressures from Big Pharma).

            Oddly, my husband has always railed against Big Pharma, and the uselessness of much of modern medicine. But he’s a slightly eccentric character. For instance, he’s been against the routine use of statins for years and fell out with an old best friend in Ireland over it one night we were over there (the friend and his wife were both doctors, and Ireland doesn’t have an NHS, so there’s money to be made from overprescribing).

            He has always thought the evidence for the link between cholesterol and life expectancy was flimsy at best, and entirely lacking at worst. But here’s the thing – he takes statins prescribed by his own GP!! He had to change the brand because the first ones were affecting his memory. But his GP is, by complete coincidence (Edinburgh is a small place) also his GMC appraiser.

            Doctors here have both an annual internal appraisal, conducted (certainly in his service) by the person just above their line manager, and an external appraisal – plus five-yearly revalidation, based on those appraisals – on behalf of the GMC. So he didn’t want to rock the boat. Everything a doctor prescribes is recorded and their numbers are compared with their colleagues, in their internal appraisal. So, for instance, if they were prescribing either many more – or many fewer – antibiotics than their colleagues, this would be a point of discussion and would have to be justified.

            Getting back to the vaccines issue, my personal feeling is that, under the surface he may be in some turmoil, which he wishes to avoid by blanking out unwelcome evidence and sticking with the echo chamber of his doctors’ blogs. He had a younger brother who committed suicide many years ago, before I knew him. And he himself, for years after that, was given medication by his then GP for bipolar disorder. Whether or not, that was a correct diagnosis, we’ll never know – he hasn’t been on those medications since before I met him.

            But some people have stronger psyches than others. I find myself making judgements about my own friends when deciding whether to say anything or not. Although in one recent instance, I was pleasantly surprised. But yesterday, when he told me to leave him alone and accept that I have my right to believe what I choose and so does he, the rims of his eyes were reddening and he was almost welling up.

            I think part of him knows I’m right and he just can’t deal with it.

            I’m not spilling the beans on my private life out of disloyalty – if I didn’t love him I wouldn’t care what he thought. I hope I’m contributing to the understanding of how difficult it is for many people – even doctors – to cope with something that I myself originally found outlandish, as you know. When you think about the big picture of what’s going on, it’s almost unthinkable.
