Reality is the kryptonite of the Left, sapping its superpowers of coercion and persecution which — get this — are the only abilities it cares about. The Left only pretends to want to make the world a better place. It doesn’t care about governing, y’know, managing national affairs, and it wouldn’t know how — as no one has demonstrated better than “Joe Biden” and the shadowy wrecking crew running him behind the scenes. The Left actually just seeks to punish its adversaries, and it generates ever-new adversities and animosities in its quest to lay on more punishments, the more sadistic the better. Thus, the never-ending Covid-19 melodrama, which provides such an excellent excuse for torturing the populace. The Left’s motto: the beatings will continue until morale improves!

Reality is intruding now, though, with the help of its twin sister, Truth. Particular truths are emerging to fortify reality and weaken the Left’s efforts to beat-down the peoples of Western Civ. For instance, the implacable truth that the mRNA vaccines don’t work and that they gravely injure people. In the face of this obvious reality, government and corporations persist in their irrational campaigns to vaxx-up every last man-woman-and-child. Why, at this point, despite all the free Kit-Kat bars you could stuff down your craw, would any sane employee of the Hershey’s Chocolate empire opt for a vaxx that could make you stroke out at your desk? The ridiculous official answer, of course, is: to protect the already-vaccinated. Sshh-yeah, right….

Ditto, the unfortunate, put-upon citizens of Austria, such a tidy little country, too, and so hopelessly lost in its daze of mass formation psychosis. This week, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, the UK, and Ireland are dropping all Covid-19 restrictions and impositions, while Austria makes its vaxx mandate a national law. (How many Austrians are secretly studying Hungarian now?) The cognitive dissonance must be unbearable, like a kind of 5G-induced tinnitus that afflicts an entire population, making them want to bang their heads against the nearest wall.

Likewise, the absurd government of Canada, led by the clueless ponce Justin Trudeau, who refuses to take his patent-leather go-go boot off the neck of Canadian truckers. The truckers aren’t having it anymore, of course, and neither are the towing services that the government is trying to enlist to get rid of the truckers’ trucks. Meanwhile, the premiers of Saskatchewan and Alberta provinces have thrown in the towel on Covid-19 restrictions, leaving Mr. Trudeau in his fortress-of-solitude, exact whereabouts unknown, desperately hurling objurgations at the “racists, Islamophobes, and transphobes” seeking to end his career as a turbaned, cross-dressing, blackface political entertainer.

And also likewise, the “progressive” sadists on the Loudoun County, VA, school board, who refuse to lift their cruel and stupid mask mandate on schoolchildren, despite Governor Glenn Youngkin’s recent executive order to cut it out. The school board sadists surely don’t care about the kids. Everybody from the Johns Hopkins Med School to The Atlantic magazine — to even the lost-in-space CDC —have admitted that wearing face-masks is pointless. Not to mention that Covid-19 has been reduced to the wimpy omicron variant, plus the truth that the incidence of serious illness in children from Covid-19 of any kind is near-zero. So, why keep the kids in masks? For the pleasure of making them miserable and flaunting their power over the kids’ parents. This is how the Left rolls.

Now, as a general proposition, you can bet that the reason the Left wants to keep the Covid-19 scare going as long as possible is in order to keep in place the “emergency” mail-in voting allowances that so easily enable ballot harvesting and other election frauds. Alas, the timing on this doesn’t look good for them. The rapid omicron up-spike has turned into a rapid down-spike. The goldurned thing is vanishing in the winter mist. By early March there may be no actual Covid on-the-scene… omigosh… and then what? The midterms are yet months away, and if there’s no emergency….

Well, I dunno. It’s not beyond imagining that the Left and its mysterious sponsors out there in the mythical matrix of sinister global interests will send yet another new coronavirus variant down the chute to keep the worldwide scare going so as to complete the ruin of Western Civ. It’d have to be a humdinger, though, something, say, that made folks bleed out of their ears, nostrils, and eye sockets — because otherwise, at this point, the people are done with lockdowns, forced vaxxes, mask mandates, green passes, and other social control nonsense, and would opt to just get on with what remains of normal life in this twilight of empire.

Looks like the backup plan is for “Joe Biden’s” geniuses in the foreign affairs and intel bureaucracy to start a war with Russia over Ukraine, our dearest ally in the whole wide world (not). Yesterday, State Department spox Ned Price floated up a raggedy balloon about Russia pulling a “false flag” stunt in Ukraine’s Donbass frontier to get things going. It sounded like he was just making shit up. And he was conspicuously short on details. “Our intel people something something, blah blah….” Skeptical reporters shot the balloon down with a few barbed remarks — the darn thing just zinged around the press room with the air rushing out and crashed on the spox’s podium — suggesting that even the news media is tired of its role in the controlled demolition of our country.

More likely, though, the financial scaffold of Late Modernity gives way under the burden of rackets and Ponzis it has been asked to support. This week, Facebook (a.k.a. Meta) scored the world record for biggest single-day market value drop ever, shedding $232-billion in capital losses. You go, Zuck! The Everything Bubble has achieved supernova scale and everybody knows she’s gonna blow as soon as Jay Powell lifts the Fed Funds rate twenty-five basis points. When that finally happens, things get realer than real and Truth comes marching in like the saints with bells on. It’ll be the Left’s Masque of the Red Deathashes, ashes, all fall down.

The actual global economy itself — the thing that sends, you know, products from one place to another — is seizing up like the engine on a beater 1998 Buick Regal. Long about right now, lots of things are not going from point A to Point B, including stuff of a food nature. It’s starting to irk the home-folks. When all that goes south, you’ll hear no more about Covid-19, systemic racism, the patriarchy, the drag queen story hour, and all the other hobgoblins that infest the Left’s gospel garden of Wokery. The kryptonite is coming on hard. They are done… and for the moment we are stuck with them running the country.

    Brilliant, as ever, James. There is some light at the end of the tunnel. However the trucker thing works out, I can’t see Trudeau staying in power. And the awful hag in NZ is experiencing Biden level poll numbers. Looks like Soros and Schwab’s candidates are all hand picked losers.

    • Beryl of Oyl February 4, 2022 at 10:57 am #

      Isn’t the NZ hag also in hiding due to the coward-19 virus?

        Probably. She and Trudeau are a right pair.

        I was really surprised to see Justin Turdeau emerge from hiding for a staged event to taunt the Freedom Convoy and make Canadians hate him even more before getting back in his helicopter and retreating to his secure undisclosed location.

        My theory is that he is ensconced in the Biden Basement with Diaper Joe, reviewing real estate video presentations of tropical islands or small countries to buy. With fifty years on the grift, Joe certainly has had plenty of time to prepare for the eventual wave of pitchfork- wielding serfs flooding across the White House lawn.
        There is a lot he can teach Boy Brown Shirt.

        We haven’t heard much about Hunter being sent on special missions recently– perhaps he is scouring the world for the perfect family retirement island.

        And speaking of the White House, where exactly is the Biden Basement Compound located? The new Obama Mansion wasn’t cheap even with all the “book advances” that came the Drone Assassin’s way. Perhaps the entire basement was excavated and especially prepared for Diaper Joe’s use knowing full well that he was unsuitable for public display without careful chemical monitoring.

      • rudyspeaks February 4, 2022 at 3:27 pm #

        And, MQ, the WEF IS the entity about which Mr Kunstler is speaking. I have no serious objection to his column except the characterization of the enemy as “the Left”. Consider, please, that, if the Democratic (sic) Party ran in any European election, they’d be considered a “center-right” party, at best.

        Oh, please Rudy, not even the Europeans are degenerate enough to promote drag queen story hours. –JHK Admin

        Imagine promising to create a Medical System TWICE as expensive as what they already have… and ranked 37th, just below Costa Rica. Further, the “Left” that I was a part of back in the 60’s/70’s was opposed to war and censorship. Recall that the 1st post-WW2 university protest, at Sproul Plaza, U of Berkely, was Mario Savios’ Free Speech movement. Kinda like a dream, isn’t it?

        • hmuller February 4, 2022 at 5:58 pm #

          That’s the point, Rudy. American leftists have abandoned their old values to embrace iron booted, globalist, corporate fascism.

          [JHK] Exactly! “Left” used to deal with bread & butter issues, workers’ rights, ending imperial wars, & free speech… all inconvenient to .01%ers. After the Clinton era finished off any confusion about Dems improving the lives of the 90-odd %, they hadda fill the resulting void with something… and “Identity” politics doesn’t interfere with the on-going, greatest-in-history, robbery that’s been running for 40 years (see the recent Rand study, which doesn’t even mention the Pentagon, LIBOR & a dozen other scams.) That Drag Queen Story Hour should have been the tip-off…a Deep State psy-op…(‘tho, I shouldn’t ever rule out “stupid”)

        This explains why a tiny home in my Spokane neighborhood has been sold three times in the last year:

        3/26/2021 $300,000
        4/22/2021 $200,000 (note the $100,000 loss)
        1/11/2023 $278,500 (a considerable amount of work was done on the house in the past several months)

        Excise taxes were paid each time. (Each sale is recorded in the public records so the authorities have something to go after. Good for state/local tax revenue, though, and maybe that is why nothing is done.

        Before the work was done, the house was probably worth about $65,000 or so. After the work was done, at most the house should have sold for $175,000 or so and that is because the market is so crazy.

      The truckers’ convoy just keeps getting bigger here in Canada, with farmers, joining the ranks of the fed-up. If you think the left cares about anything but its’ self-preservation, let me ask you a question. Why are the ruling Liberals and their NDP hand-maidens more concerned with a bunch of rowdy causing traffic headaches in provincial capitals but not the burgeoning and increasingly belligerent homeless population, many of who are heavily addicted, a threat to themselves, others and in need of psychiatric services? Why are dangerous individuals freely roaming the streets of Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa not a concern for the powers that be? What about the 200,000-plus jobs that the Canadian economy shed in January not ringing alarm bells in Ottawa? Or the country’s acute housing problem, exacerbated by unregulated money-laundering in Canada’s overheated real-estate market. Wake up folks. The ruling classes care more about the inconvenience posed by the truckers’ convoy on their daily lives than the horrific problems that are being uncovered in the Long Emergency.

    First of all, we must remember that it was Austria that gave the world WWI AND Hitler so BS to that nation of fools. Interesting that the other countries pushing the Agenda of Population Reduction are all those that are most heavily pressured by the Big American and English boot on their necks? The “left” or Mr. Global are clearly wanting a lot less of us so that there will be a lot more for them and unfortunately for US(A), the right is sympathetic enough to their cause to continuously sit idly by while we are victimized, with a few exceptions like Senator Paul.

    Prepare everybody because it is going to be an interesting Spring if we can get past the last half of Winter because I have a feeling that the better the weather gets the harder they are going put the squeeze on us all. The sooner you realize that someone is trying to kill you, the better off you will be.

        Your post seems to indicate a belief in the PTB’s interest in actually solving a problem…and that might not be the case.

        Soon after Barak Obama and Joe Biden were first elected to the Presidential offices, I actually sent a telegram to Joe Biden suggesting the exact same thing you espouse…rebuilding the local and reginal rail system.

    Is it me or are all of us starting to sound like Alex Jones?

    Regarding the Bolsheviks running the West, it’s funny for all the wrong reasons to watch them scramble around trying to start multiple major wars and roll out their global techno dystopia.

    Do these people realize how badly they’ve wrecked their supply chain and work force? Do they have a clue that, in the last world war US production capacity was a key part of carrying the day for the Allies?

    What a time to be alive.

    • Walter B February 4, 2022 at 10:17 am #

      Alex Jones brought a lot of truth to the table but turned a lot of people off for one reason or another. The evil ones, of course could not allow the truth to be told and regular folks cannot handle a diet of continual gloom and doom, but I think that his delivery turned a lot of people off. I am told that I have the same problem sometimes, so I understand. Joe Rogan does a far better job at revelation then Alex or I could ever do.

        He has indeed. I listen on occasion. Back in the Bush era, when I was a serious DC person working at a well-known government advisory organization, I scoffed at individuals of this sort.

        Eventually, I found myself and decided I could get past the presentation style and perhaps investigate if some of the things he ranted about checked out. Most of the time, they did, which led me to start questioning lots of things I thought I knew.

        One thing that amuses me is that those who hate him do spend quite a bit of time making sure he isn’t allowed to speak. 🙂

        I have learned to keep an open mind; many times, those who are demonized are the ones telling the truth.

        I had to stop paying attention to Akex Jones when he was saying Sandy Hook was a hoax and a false flag event, having known someone who lost a little one there (a niece).

        • sanspeur February 4, 2022 at 2:11 pm #

          False flags are not defined as completely fake or no innocent deaths. Its the crazy circumstances around these events that are viciously censored.

          There is plenty of evidence that SH was a staged event. And yes, innocent children died. Just as Covid is a staged event, and millions are dying. 911, staged, and over 3k died.

          Accept that there is Evil leading Most of the worlds leaders, and finding the truth will take you down many false paths, many times having AJ leading you.

      • Islander February 4, 2022 at 11:36 am #

        Unfortunately, Alex Jones looks and sounds like a clown or a circum barker.

        Maybe some people actually like the nonstop barking, but for many, exhaustion quickly sets in.

        Also, it creates the impression that he is more interested in fanning endless outrage (also exhausting) than in clearly presenting the facts he has unearthed.

        A few of his guests have made good, clear, presentations (such as Richard Fleming), but as soon as Jones switches the camera to himself . . . please, Alex, STFU!

        Plus, get some cough drops and lose a few pounds.

        I like the overwrought and bombastic Alex Jones, he has plenty of good guests, but I gave up listening to him quite awhile before Covid because of his excessive commercials. My + your brain is full advertising nonsense that we all get bombarded with even before we are verbal. This has made people stupid and crass. Conservative types, who are the only people who will actually talk to me (another thing that happened before Covid) are very ok with this. Just another one of the items on my things that suck list…

        So now Meghan and Harry and Michael and Barack Obama are thinking about quitting Spotify.

        And the cleansing of Spotify continues.

        Here’s your hat…

        • Beryl of Oyl February 4, 2022 at 1:34 pm #

          Meghan and Harry were criticized for going to work at Spotify in the first place:

          What’s up with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s $25M Spotify deal?

          Many struggling musicians who stream through Spotify took issue with the initial deal, believing the couple’s $25 million payday was excessive when others have yet to receive a check from the platform.

          “I’ve been writing songs since I was 12 years-old,” singer-songwriter Callum Gardner told the Star in April. “I don’t get paid from Spotify, it’s never broken even from the money I used to put songs on Spotify. It’s hard, I don’t know what we are supposed to do because they have all the power and somehow all of the artists have all agreed.”

          Another young musician, Harrison Rhys, said the Spotify deal with the prince and his wife was an “unethical kick in the teeth.”

          https://pagesix.com/2021/06/19/meghan-markle-and-prince-harrys-multimillion-dollar-spotify-deal-update/

          They were also criticized for their lack of output for the money.

          • Blackbird February 4, 2022 at 6:00 pm #

            Based on Meg and Harry’s activity on Spotify, it appears they quit right about the time they cashed their $25M check.

    • benr February 4, 2022 at 10:22 am #

      Alex was right about many things but that kind of “right” scares people and they don’t want to listen because its painful know that elements of your government lie, steal, murder and most of all cheat to win.

      It goes against everything These United States were founded on and the ever-famous Truth, Justice and the American way.

      Or as Ronny famously quipped a Shining city on the hill.

      It’s also very unnerving to hear just how demonically possessed some of our leaders appear to be.

    • Hardrock February 4, 2022 at 10:34 am #

      Interesting insight about all sounding like Jones…

      The continual pressure by the left forces people to more and more extreme positions to balance the field.

      For example…I have watched a couple of Jared Taylor vids when people have posted links even though I have no sympathy for anyone or group that seeks further divisiveness/chaos. (I actually found the presentations to be reasonable)

      Now Michelle Malkin has been cancelled by Air BNB because she spoke at an AM Ren Conference…..so I figure maybe I’ll check it out since she spoke there.

      Most of the left would condemn me for visiting this web site but they have pushed me to this extreme position by their own insane philosophy.

      So what next???? do I subscribe to the reptile people theory? 🙂

      • hmuller February 4, 2022 at 10:49 am #

          Isn’t the reptile thing David Icke? Icke is another guy who is fascinating to listen to. He is another who is actually quite sober and realistic on most issues. Prophetic at times.

          Where I can’t follow him is when he gets into the spiritual/fringe esoteric stuff. That said, he is unquestionably an incredibly intelligent individual, as is his son Gareth.

            He’s into psychics who “see” or imagine that the Elite are reptiles. He doesn’t have these visions himself. In any case, he likes the symbolism so he believes it. And of course the Elite do act in very cold blooded ways so it’s true as a metaphor in any case.

        As many have pointed out, dissenters have been pushed to the fringe, and then they are ad-hommed for being on the fringe.

        Totally circular argument.

        • Beryl of Oyl February 4, 2022 at 11:48 am #

          There seem to be millions of us, all around the world, on the fringe right now.

          I wonder if they changed the definition of fringe while we weren’t watching?

          • Tate February 4, 2022 at 12:59 pm #

            If you’ve noticed, they’ve redefined what is fringe & what is mainstream. What a generation ago would have been mainstream is now fringe & what was fringe is now mainstream. The path toward fringe has accelerated sharply in recent years is all that’s changed.

            This rapid acceleration toward the abnormal is the reason people have suddenly noticed & have found themselves redefined as “fringe” to their great surprise.

          • Islander February 4, 2022 at 3:50 pm #

        • Paula D February 4, 2022 at 11:59 am #

          I agree, Islander. The msm trashes the hell out of people and then points to them as being trashed and blames them.
          They did the same thing to Trump.
          And then they told people that they were trashing him because he asked for it because he liked the attention.
          Alex Jones has almost always been right, as people have pointed out. And they may have killed kids at Sandy Hook, but it didn’t go down the way they said it did, that is for sure. The problem with people who say “Nobody died” is that they seem to believe that our ruling overlords have some sort of moral lines they will not cross.
          That belief is more delusional than any other belief that people can hold.

          • megabeth February 4, 2022 at 12:22 pm #

            The whole Epstein story, start to finish, bespeaks their lack of moral lines of any sort. Things that overstep ethical boundaries and adopt a moral compass of their own, from corporate profit motive to globalism to AI, are never to be underestimated.

          • NoLongerHuman February 4, 2022 at 2:47 pm #

            Speaking of Epstein, I’ve always thought his sudden arrival in the U.S. for no clear reason was a signal across the world to all those people who had been compromised that the time is now. It didn’t take long after that for every western world leader to get in line behind the unholy mischief.

            My take on the lizards/retiles (in response to a poster on Unz who speculated on the purposes of supposed tunnels linking all the Walmarts in the country).

            Simple…..the reptile people are living in the tunnels which is where they pull maintenance on the UFO’s. They live on pizza and Watergate salad. They use the dollars that supposedly are part of our national debt to further their agenda. They paid Lee Harvey Oswald AND Jack Ruby both and one of their own snipers was the second gunman…..er reptile on the grassy knoll. They have an elaborate sound stage down there and that’s where all the space videos are shot…including the moon landing. They also have an AI/Robotics division down there and that’s where they make and program all your government leaders. Ha, ha, ha….did you think the droid formerly known as Joe was the real thing? Ha, ha, ha. Get with the program slowpoke!

            The plan is to get everyone so confused we won’t know our assets from a hoe in the ground and will not be able to raise our own food. Then it’s Soylent Green for everyone baby!

      • Jarek February 4, 2022 at 11:47 am #

        The premises are simple and also true. Whites from the British Isles founded this nation for themselves. This is easily verified. They didn’t need to call themselves White Nationalists because they simply were White Nationalists. And yes, no just racist, but ethnocentric against other White ethnes and nations.

        Unfortunately, the Republic tied itself to Capitalism, which becomes globalist once it reaches the Corporate stage. The Banks are always globalist, money having no borders. Between them, they were able to gradually change the nation and culture to suit themselves, putting the Founding race at the bottom of the pecking order.

        No need to accept the Reptile theory – unless you see Whites as reptiles. One poster here used to call us just that.

        • megabeth February 4, 2022 at 12:24 pm #

          Yes, spot-on, Jarek. The lizard people are just a Jungian archetype.

        Jared Taylor and Amren aren’t espousing further division/chaos, quite the contrary. It is the continuous preaching of diversity and poisonous politics that are creating such. Sadly, if anything ever changes for the better, it will most likely involve said chaos and perhaps bloodshed. Like minded people need their own country. Michelle Malkin’s speech was great. She gets it.

        • Hardrock February 4, 2022 at 12:27 pm #

          CBeard:

          I don’t know enough about Amren to make a call on it yet. But your point is well-taken….I was viewing it through the lens of the MSM and their minions on the net.

          Always good to find out for yourself because the propaganda machine is in overdrive.

          Like I said, when I have actually listened to Tayor he sounds reasonable.

          Some years ago, I attended my first Boar’s Head festival and was entranced with the symbolism all relating back to European History; I left with a little more pride in my heritage. It’s unfortunate that many now want to denigrate European contributions to science, philosophy, theology and the arts. We did some good stuff.

        • Tate February 4, 2022 at 1:10 pm #

          You can only view Amren as divisive if you think the truth itself is divisive. The noble Lie that the Left wants us to believe is that everybody is equal, everybody has the same potential, i.e., the Blank Slate theory. This has been unequivocally proven false by real science, for anyone with an open mind who is willing to investigate the competing claims. But we have to believe in it because, you know, scientism says it’s true because it’s for the good of “our Democracy.”

      • tresho February 4, 2022 at 11:23 am #

        “doesn’t the Canadian army have some really big towing equipment?” I’m sure they have tank towing machines. I am fairly certain that 4 semis can box in any existing wheel-driven towing machine rather easily. Unless the towing machine is capable of rolling and and crushing a loading semi, I very much doubt it can tow anything when it’s boxed in. Canadian forces probably also have heavy lift helicopters which can’t be boxed it, but I doubt they could clear a major highway obstruction in less than several days.

        I’ve subscribed since I was 13. Back then, it was the best car magazine, the most independent auto writers other than Consumer Reports.

        That was something (C/D would occasionally trash cars that deserved it), since the car mags (the “buff books”) run on advertising from automakers, and depend on auto makers for free cars to test.

        That’s why Motor Trend gave a star to every car, and their car of the year had as much or more to do with advertising, as with the car.

        It’s been a gradual decline. Part of it is change (for the worse) in the editors, writers. That’s due to their corporate masters, in large part.

        But it also reflects the readers. Today’s younger readers (those who read);have lower attention spans, due to internet/smart phones.

        They also know less about cars, and grew up with good cars (unlike the 1970s).

        Finally, the cars themselves have gotten much better, and much more alike.

        Unlike the 1960s-1980s, when car features and performance varied a lot, and when it was not uncommon for a good low priced car to test better than lousy expensive car, and when different manufacturers or models focused on different traits (comfort, performance, value, reliability—pick two), now they are very close. So given the absence of differences worth reporting about, we get bull$hit.

        But the fact that every C/D issue now is worse than the previous one, and that the woman presiding over this sad and pathetic decline has been promoted are amusing, but minor compared to our bigger problems

          In many ways we may live in the era of happiest motoring.

          Even cheap Hyundais and Kias are able to cruise at triple digits without breaking a sweat.

          The Big 3 have put so much time and effort into their pickups that they are equally at home cruising at near triple digits on the highway or rambling down a fire road.

          Very impressive, yet ultimately unsustainable engineering efforts going forward.

          • Socrates-Detroit February 5, 2022 at 10:55 am #

            thirdcoastlegend, yes we are living in the era of happiest motoring. But we are near the end of the plateau, and headed downhill.

            As in many facets of life, automakers and motorists are confronted with the laws of diminishing returns for the internal combustion engine.

            A metaphor is the oil that powers ICE. The easy oil finds, like Texas and Saudi’s Ghawar field, where you could punch a hole and oil would come out easily, are gone.

            Ditto cars. Each major innovation or enhancement yields less.

            The big enhancement of from 1975 to 1995 was the application of electronics and computers to cars, starting with electronic ignition and then coupling computers with the fuel intake system, replacing carburetors on most cars and mechanical fuel injection on the pricey ones with electronic fuel injection. The hardware cost more up front, but power increased considerably at the same time fuel consumption dropped dramatically. These tricks could (and were) applied even to old American engines, like V8s dating from the 1960s, essentially the same hardware, was generating 50% more power.

            In conjunction with another change, the move from 2-speed and 3-speed automatics in the 1960s to 4-speed automatics in the 1990s, and common-sense squaring up and lightening of car bodies, the final editions of Chevy Caprice or Ford LTD in the 1990s went 50% to 75% further on a gallon of fuel.

            The effects on smaller Japanese cars were similar. Those two innovations, computer/fuel injection first, and 4-speed automatics second, drove the big gains. That’s 1995, over 25 years ago. The fuel injection was medium cost–less than the cost of air conditioning on a car, about the same as the cost of an optional automatic (on a manual) car. The extra gear cost about as much as AM/FM radio.

            Two less, but considerable, innovations were going from 2 valves per cylinder to 4-valves (that cost about as much as a car air conditioner, but the gains are not as significant as the above (diminishing returns), and going from 4-speed auto to 6-speed (that cost about the same as an AM/FM radio)

            Those four innovations have made cars much more efficient. We may not think so–but that is because vehicles have grown taller, larger, and HEAVIER.

            A 1970s Cutlass station wagon weigher about 4500 lbs, and needed a V8, minimum size 5.7 liters (350 cubic inches). Forty years later, a 2015 Chevy Equinox with ALL wheel drive weighed about 4200 lbs, and worked fine with a standard….2.4 (that’s about 145 cubic inches) 4-cylinder. The Cutlass probably averaged 13-15 mpg, 18 on a long trip, the Equinox probably averages 19-23 mpg, 28 on a long trip (oh, we drive faster now too, thank God!)

            The automakers innovations of the past 10 years cost as much or more, deliver markedly less improvements, and offer the potential of reduced durability and reliability. “Direct” fuel injection is pricey, makes the engine sound louder and coarser, and yields relatively little. Going from 6-speed auto to 8, 9, or 10 speed puts more complexity in the trans, for a minor gain. Stop/start is annoying–and if your starter is being used 10x as often, trust me, it is not 10x as “robust”. It will fail sooner, and tax your battery more. Turbos–that’s as huge cost and a lot of complexity. They do save fuel in urban driving, but if you use the power (they make a tennis player size engine perform like an NFL lineman), you will burn just as much fuel.

            And we have the electronic BS, because we are told that’s what people want. The cursed “touch screen”. It’s fun to try to adjust the heat or change the radio while the car is moving, isn’t it? Or the nanny state buzzers. It’s more stuff to break down, of dubious value.

            So, I you have a 2012 Malibu or Camry or Accord, for that matter, ANY 2000-2015 car in good shape, and took care of it, they will serve you for a long time in competent fasion.

            Today’s new cars are a little better, but I find them more aggravating, and I’m willing to bet they will not be as robust as those of a decade ago.

            And that is another 1977 metaphor: that year, 10-year old car in proper state of tune ran better than new ones, which were hobbled by emissions controls and carburetors, with computer controlled fuel injection 10-15 years way.

          • Paul February 5, 2022 at 3:13 pm #

            Yes, quite true. I bought a Hyundai Elantra Touring new in 2010. Reliable as hell, especially with its manual transmission. It didn’t fare so well 8 years later when a deer decided to commit suicide-by-car. Also, my ’02 Chevy-Crewcab is a tank. Still going strong with regular P.M. and repairs. It fared much better in the local crash-test last Winter: GM 1, Moose 0.

    “Our intel people something something, blah blah….”
    In my old age, my readings in history and current events as they were and as they passed me by are finally paying off. Now every time I hear about “our intel people” I think of the many times US intel was out of touch with reality. 1941 — months before Pearl Harbor, the Martin-Bellinger report from a couple of high ranking US military commanders was thoroughly ignored by “our intel”. It predicted the upcoming attack’s time of day, day of the week, method, direction from which the attack would come, and the fact that the Empire would not declare war on the US before striking. Oct 1962: 4 Soviet subs off Cuba repositioned themselves under water when JFK announced his “quarantine” of shipping in and around Cuba. “Our intel” was ignorant of the fact that each sub had a “special weapon” – a nuclear tipped torpedo for which each sub’s commander had Moscow’s full authority to launch, at the decision of each sub’s command, no need to communicate with Moscow. It was a miracle IMNSHO that Soviet sub B59 did not launch its “special weapon” against the US Navy despite being depth-charged. “Our intel” was completely ignorant of this situation until 1992 when the military archives of the defunct USSR were opened for review. Jan 1968 — a frontline US Army intel officer captures documents from a dead NVA officer with the full plan of the upcoming Tet offensive. He makes a point of personally presenting them to Gen. Westmoreland for his perusal. Westie gives the documents no more than a glance, gives them a wave of the back of his hand, and says, “They’re not able to do that!”
    Nowadays it seems “our intel” has gone over to organized crime, a task they perform much better than “intel”.

    • benr February 4, 2022 at 10:25 am #

      Intel also knew about a 9-11 style of attack in the mid 90’s from documents captured from a Filipino terror cell of the Islamic persuasion.

      When I was a student of Descriptive Linguistics at the University of Texas (early 1960s) I was the recipient of a tentative approach by the CIA (I later found out). What the Brits refer to as “…the hand on the knee…”

      Instinctively I backed off, very nicely excusing myself. From all I had learned I thought of them as an exclusive up-East old-money country club. Paper shufflers and fuckups, not to mention the occasional Aldrich Ames straight-up traitor.

      My sexual bent would have eventually got me canned in any case. So I was never truly tempted.

      They were fortunate in that the KGB was staffed by colossal blunderers, two-left-feet fuckups with an astoundingly bad track record.

      I have come to respect only two agencies: Mossad and French intelligence (who reportedly sat Jackie O. down and gave her the straight dope on what they knew about the JFK hit: Antoine Guerini, Lucien Sarti and friends).

      • Beryl of Oyl February 4, 2022 at 11:17 am #

        Speaking of contagion, this study is out of Imperial College London:

        In the trial, 36 healthy male and female volunteers aged 18-30 years, unvaccinated against COVID-19 and with no prior infection with SARS-CoV-2 were given a low dose of the virus – introduced via drops up the nose – and then carefully monitored by clinical staff in a controlled environment over a two-week period. The study used virus from very early in the pandemic obtained from a hospitalized patient in the ISARIC4C study, prior to the emergence of the Alpha variant.

        Eighteen of the volunteers became infected, 16 of whom went on to develop mild-to-moderate cold-like symptoms, including a stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, and a sore throat. Some experienced headaches, muscle/joint aches, tiredness and fever.

        None developed serious symptoms.

        https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/233514/covid-19-human-challenge-study-reveals-detailed/

        • tresho February 4, 2022 at 11:28 am #

          I’m pretty sure results would be drastically different if a similar challenge study were done on unvaccinated nursing home residents. “Dose” of a virus is a relative thing. I wonder if challenges using lower doses to see if normal people in that age group have a threshold beneath which COVID-19 can’t infect. It is still unknown why/how normal children 5 & under are so resistant to severe or fatal COVID-19 infections.

            Both my granddaughter, 18 months, and grandson, 3, were positive for covid and had zero symptoms. Even Fauci admitted that children in the hospital who tested positive were there for other reasons. So why are he and the CDC pushing to give 3 additional shots to babies as young as 6 months when the data has clearly shown covid is no threat to them? He has never explained that and, my guess is, he never will.

          • tresho February 4, 2022 at 11:52 am #

            “So why are he and the CDC pushing to give 3 additional shots to babies as young as 6 months when the data has clearly shown covid is no threat to them? ” Everyone knows the answer to that. Last I checked the UK’s experts have advised NOT immunizing the under-5 demographic.

            SW, I understand that if they can get the clot shot on the child vaccine schedule, the shot will have zero liability attached to it, same as all the other vaxes on the schedule. So they’re pushing hard to vaxx all the kids up, in order to go to the next step of getting it on the schedule.

            They already did a study on nursing home residents.

            That’s what got the whole “lockdown” scam going. Really high death rates really scared the public.

            We knew from the Diamond Princess, that this virus wasn’t as scary as what the CCP propaganda was portraying, but they were able to go ahead and force the destructive, completely untested, and ludicrous lockdowns, masks, “social distance”, and ultimately compulsory vaccination with dangerous, untested and unnecessary non-vaccines on most of the world.

          • abbybwood February 4, 2022 at 1:25 pm #

    The question now is, after suppressing early treatments for two years and killing millions of people, how do Fauci and his ilk walk this one back without a side-trip to the gallows? My guess is that they’ll try to walk away after Omicron finishes its burn-through, and pretend nothing ever happened. I don’t think it’ll work this time though.

        The best part is, the DC-led west desperately wants a war in Ukraine right now to occupy the minds of their constituents and to continue to sell the myth of “Russian aggression,” although they certainly have no intention of actually fighting it with US troops; but Putin is refusing to give it to them, and the US-installed UkroNazi stooges damn sure ain’t stupid enough to commit suicide by initiating it themselves. Once again, DC’s holding an empty hand for all to see and losing credibility by the minute.

        I want to see the Admiral captaining a ship, “her” hair blowing in the wind and in full uniform. Perhaps an old battleship launching a full assault on Crimea.

        What a reality TV show it would make. Only lasting a few episodes of course. Not even a full episode upon reaching the Black Sea.

      Funny Lavrov story: when John “Goodhair” Kerry had a sitdown with Putin and Lavrov, DEMANDING that they turn the wicked Snowden over to the Americans, Lavrov delivered so many “Nyet” that Putin joked that he was going to call him “Gromyko”.

    Geeze, Joe. Thise 90s Buick Regals were great cars. I owned two of them and a Chevy Lumina which was just a cheap one with a Chevy badge. I miss these old cars without all the techi junk and four wheel drive. I got frest fuel economy out if them and could go anywhere in the snow as long as I had snow tires. I actually despise new cars with all the elecronics, big ass wheels and four wheel drive. They are such inefficient and wasteful contraptions.

      Outstanding column today, JHK, thank you sir!

      All your columns are excellent, but but to me this one stands out!

      The only slight hiccup… a 1998;Buick Regal is actually a pretty solid car. Very boring, but quite reliable. It was like an American made Toyota Camry for the elderly.

      Soc-Det — D’ya think any 23-year old car would run great now? — JHK Admin

      A 1998 Ford Contour or Ford Focus (any year) is a much better metaphor. These cars were the crappiest high-selling vehicles of the past 25 years.

        My former employer (state government) got a Ford Focus for a state car. It was probably a 2018. It didn’t even have 1,000 miles on it and it went in for transmission problems. It spent more time in the repair shop than in service. What a POS! I only had one Ford in my life (1975). After that, I would only buy a Toyota.

        • megabeth February 4, 2022 at 12:38 pm #

          Best car I ever had was a little stick shift Ford Festiva (really an early Kia). Was a reliable little gas sipper, although Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers, said it should have come with a funeral wreath on the hood.

          It got 60 mpg, highway, and I drove it for 15 years.

          Ford Focus: I generalized.

          An earlier Ford Focus is fine. The last version of the Ford Focus, the newest one, WITH the automatic (and that’s 95% of them), the craptastic DPS6 automatic, was/is often a lemon. That’s 2012-2018. Feel free to google “bad Ford transmission”

        Yeah, that was a bit of a hiccup for me, too.
        My family drove down 301 to Flahdah in 1959 in a 1947 Buick convertible—and back five months later. Mom had never driven off-Island. Terrifying, but—we made it.

        The car was solid as a brick s— house, and I bet, if maintained, would still be good to go.

        I bought my Ford Escape new in 2007 (19 miles on the odometer). Only repair it ever needed was that stupid little spiked wheel that tells the anti-lock brakes to ignore my foot on the brake pedal. Had to have that fixed twice in the past three years. If that car makes it to its 23rd birthday, I expect it will be driven by Nigerian peacekeepers who like the snow and decided to homestead.

        Yes sir! I do!

        Even here, in the hell for automobiles that is SE Michigan, where the roads are liberally potholed and rough and even more liberally salted, and every other person has a relative that can get you a “company discount”, and (until recently) managers’ cars provided an additional nice supply of late model discounted used cars, you can see MUNDANE old cars on the road. Some of them probably owned by elderly and now in regular service, and some of them have been on the road for the past 25 years.

        I just did a Craigslist search, cars 1990-1999, 128 for sale today.

        On Autotrader, 114 cars 190-99 (out of 53,000) in a 50 mile radius. Two of them were Buicks, including one 1992 Regal, lol. Six were Toyotas.

        By now, of course most 23 year old cars are long gone.

        But, I bet ALL Ford Contours are gone, and that was a big seller.

        As for the Ford Focus, another big seller, that is the Vega of this era.

        I know you must recall the Vega, what a POS it was, and how it damaged GM’s reputation, even more than the Corvair.

        The newer Focus came with Ford’s DPS6 transmission. (A good example of the diminishing returns of incremental technology—it takes more “cost” to get less “benefit” than what came before).

        Ford tried to reduce some of that cost with some short cuts. They realized the transmissions were not adequately robust, but KNOWINGLY went ahead and sold the cars anyway. Does that sound familiar?

    The timing of BA2 really stinks. If they know that a certain number of folks have already got it, they have been tested positive,

    With what test, developed in days? How fast can these scientists come up with the layout of a new variant? Or how fast are the new variants being created with the test in parallel?

    Where are the variant dependent vaxxes promised last year? Alpha is just so-o-o passé!

    • thirdcoastlegend February 4, 2022 at 10:51 am #

      Well, thinking about their stated plan, on the face of it the sheer logistics are impossible.

    • tresho February 4, 2022 at 11:45 am #

      “How fast can these scientists come up with the layout of a new variant?” The COVID-19 virus has about 30,000 RNA bases in its structure. There are many devices on the market that can analyse viruses automagically and produce a printout of the bases in order. The base sequence of the original Wuhan variant was generated very early in the pandemic and disseminated worldwide very rapidly.
      I think the speed of analyzing the base sequence of any given variant is less than a day. (I searched but didn’t find any simple description with details.) UK and SA seem to have devoted the most resources to analyzing variants, the USA has lagged behind them throughout.

      • GreenAlba February 4, 2022 at 1:22 pm #

        I like the idea of ‘automagically’ analysing viruses, tresho. 🙂

        • Rhisiart Gwilym February 4, 2022 at 3:17 pm #

          I like the idea of anyone at all – anywhere in the world – being actually able to supply a fully-purified, electron-microscope-visible, real physical sample of this ‘virus’, rather than just some GIGO in-silico guess of what it should be, according to current in-group ‘virus’ theory.

          No one, anywhere, seems able to do this, when FOIAed. None of the many claims to have ‘isolated’ the ‘virus’ stand up to detailed examination. And the word ‘isolated’ seems to be one of that sheaf of words that have been unilaterally re-defined since the start of the pseudopandemic.

          Meanwhile, the seemingly long-dormant controversy about whether ‘viruses’ exist at all has resurrected suddenly: an unforeseen consequence of the pseudopandemic conspiracy.

          Bet the conspirators didn’t table-top game plan that… LOLOLOL!

          And yes, I know: Even before the poison-stabs started killing and maiming people en masse, a lot of people seem to have died unnecessarily from – what? Some sort of flu-like illness; which could have been cured easily with EARLY treatments based around hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin or – above all – mega-dose intra-venous vitamin C.

          All of these approaches are well known and well proven, despite the determined criminal efforts by the conspirators to censor and suppress them. C-treatment has been well-proven in China. Early treatment based around hydrogen-peroxide also seems to work pretty well too – for those doctors who’ve actually prescribed it.

          But this excess death-toll – as announced in commercial horror by the life-insurance providers – doesn’t prove the existence of the pseudopandemic. It’s better seen as proof of the conspiracy, proof of the lethality of the poison-stabs – and maybe proof of the existence of some sort of tampered flu-pathogen, whatever it really is.

          Whatever it is, so long as it’s treated early it seems to be not much more lethal than an average flu – and just as treatable. I caught the bug in Spring, 2020, aged 79, and self-treated with thirty grams (sic! grams, not milligrams!) per day of vitamin C powder in water, taken by mouth, a mouthful every half hour – aka divided doses. As with all attempts by cold/flu pathogens to make me ill over the past 25-plus years, this one was unable to produce anything worse than something less than a mild cold; and it was gone completely by the fourth day. No doctor, no hospital, no sweat – literally!

          Going on 82 now, and still scoffing contemptuously at the whole ‘pandemic’ scam, omni-con and all! As long as you’re reasonably fit, and have plenty of C on hand, the whole con is nothing to worry about.

          Btw, visit Andrew Saul’s ‘Doctoryourself.com’ website for the lowdown on C. Comprehensive!

    Does anybody think this will end in any other way except extreme violence? THEY will never give up their power or control willingly. And, since most of them are psychopaths’, they really do not give a fuck about anybody but themselves. We will probably end up with a world war, revolutionary war and a civil war all rolled up into one fourth turning. Will it end in a “World Made By Hand”, or another “Spanish Inquisition” on steroids’. Looking at human nature, I’m not putting any faith in a world made by hand. Yes, the good people out number the evil fucks by a long margin, but for the good people to actually get out of their comfort zone and start bringing the pain, they have to go through a shit ton of misery first. That’s what makes them good people. Meanwhile, evil psychopaths’ love to bring on the pain from the get go, that is why they are always in charge. By the time the good people are ready to get payback, well, we seen this movie before. Biblical meets Medieval and gives birth to “Swans Song” and her brother “The Stand”. LMFAO!!!

    Going back to the original “FDA FACTSHEET” (https://www.fda.gov/media/153715/download) for the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine trials of 2020, we find that 99% of those who did not take the new vaccine – also known as the placebo group – did not catch Covid. But slightly more – 99.95% – of those who took the vaccine did not catch Covid. That’s less than a 1% improvement.

    This whole 3 year disaster could have been avoided if we just thought it through in that 1% improvement light. It shows the vaccine was worthless. Who would buy any drug that only reduces your risk of infection by 1%?

    So where did the so-called 95% efficacy rate come from? They compared the number of covid infections in the 7 days following the vaccinations and compared it to the number of infections in the placebo group. The number was 162 placebos infected and only 8 vaccinated people infected. You can say that the infections among the vaccinated is 95% less than the placebo group . 8 is indeed 95% less than 162. That’s called a 95% efficacy rate by our government.

    Thanks to the magic of statistics, an actual 1% improvement was turned into a fantastical 95% improvement. A total flop was re-packaged into a blockbuster life-saving miracle cure.

    The “FDA FACTSHEET” also states that the 44,000 “Participants are planned to be followed for up to 24 months, for assessments of safety and efficacy against COVID-19”. I can’t wait to see that success report come out this summer.

    • thirdcoastlegend February 4, 2022 at 11:11 am #

      So they got infected…who really cares?

      How many of the infected in both groups were hospitalized?

      How many died?

      I bet those numbers are so miniscule they are nothing more than statistical noise…

      • Bill of Rights February 4, 2022 at 11:24 am #

        TCL: yes those numbers are minuscule. 162 + 8 = 170 people out of 44,000 in the trial caught the virus. It’s so tiny, it’s as statistically insignificant as it gets. Yet somehow or other, the whole world has been turned upside down based on 170 people in a pharma trial.

        • Not_GeorgeT February 4, 2022 at 10:44 pm #

          Without crunching #’s, it was something like 95% of 1%. Pure presentation of a meaningless statistic swallowable by the masses who won’t bother to look behind the numbers.

    • Paula D February 4, 2022 at 12:13 pm #

      They might be following the 44,000 participants who took the jab, but they destroyed the control group after 2 months.
      The only control group now is those of us who refuse to submit to the GMO injectable.
      And they are doing their very best to destroy this control group just like they destroyed the Pfizer control group.

    • abbybwood February 4, 2022 at 2:04 pm #

      The problem is that Pfizer made sure to give everyone in the placebo group the jab because “they felt bad leaving them unprotected”.

      But thankfully we have many millions of Americans still unjabbed after two years. (About 35%?)

      I can only speak for my 71 year old unjabbed self, but even Omicron didn’t touch me! And I have been out and about LA the whole time. All D3’d and Zinc’d up.

  25. Paul February 4, 2022 at 11:05 am #

    The never-ending puppet-show which North American MSM present cites many reasons for the rising anger and fear in the sensibilities of so many ordinary citizens.

    Russia, Covid-19, Fauci, the Right, the Left, Vaccinations, supply-chain disruptions . . . and most recently Canadian truckers . . . the list goes on and on and on.

    But I’m remembering the opinion offered by Dr. Tim Morgan of the Surplus Energy Economics website WAY back in 2017 when Mr. Trump was POTUS.

    His view argues that U.S. prosperity ‘peaked’ way, way back in 1999 and has been deteriorating ever since.

    His very clear argument makes sense to me, so I’ve been keeping it in mind while I try to make sense of things, which admittedly is a bit of a challenge these days. And I’m no one special at all, just an ordinary guy trying to minimize risk and keep my own, and the heads of my family and friends above water as best I can.

    Maybe all of the chaos we’re seeing right now are only symptoms and/or distractions — not the underlying disease.

    Could it be the underlying disease is the inevitable and maybe terminal decline in economic prosperity? Maybe so.

    ex: https://surplusenergyeconomics.wordpress.com/2017/09/05/104-why-mr-trump-cant-raise-american-prosperity/

    “THE US ECONOMY – A SEEDS APPRAISAL

    With SEEDS – the Surplus Energy Economics Data System – nearing public release, this article has two purposes. It assesses the outlook for the American economy, and uses this investigation to demonstrate how SEEDS is applied to economic interpretation.

    It concludes that American prosperity is in decline, and has been falling ever since it ‘peaked’ way back in 1999. This doesn’t make America unique – prosperity has long been falling across much of the developed West. But it does mean that the central economic task of President Trump, [now Biden] which is to make the average American more prosperous, simply is not possible.

    Two main factors are driving the deterioration in prosperity. First, the underlying economy has been deteriorating, a trend disguised by the spending of borrowed money.

    Second, in America as elsewhere, the trend cost of energy continues to increase markedly, even while market prices are trapped in a cyclical low. [then, but not now] This cost acts as an “economic rent”, and translates into individual experience primarily through the cost of essentials, which are energy-intensive.

    Essentially, two things are happening to the average American. First, his or her income is rising less rapidly than the cost of essentials, squeezing the “discretionary” income which is the real definition of prosperity. Second, increases in income are being far exceeded by increases in debt, and also by growing shortfalls in pension provision. So the citizen feels both less prosperous and less secure.

    As SEEDS measures it, per capita prosperity was 10% lower in 2016 than it was back in 2000. Neither is this trend likely to reverse – by 2025, the average American is likely to have seen his or her prosperity decline by a further 8% in comparison with 2016. At the same time, per capita debt has increased by almost $54,000, in real terms, since 2000, a problem now being compounded by a rapidly-growing systemic shortfall in pension provision.

    ‘Conventional’ economics cannot capture any of this. A perspective which ignores both “borrowed consumption” and the trend cost of energy is baffled by popular discontent, in America and elsewhere. Moreover, ‘conventional’ analysis tends to be misled by the apparently-buoyant values of stocks, bonds and property. These values are misleading, because they cannot be monetized – the only buyers for homes, for example, are the same people to whom they already belong.

    For as long as these issues are overlooked, popular anger is likely to go on taking ‘the experts’ by surprise.”

    • Paula D February 4, 2022 at 12:20 pm #

      Yes, the decline in energy supplies leading to a decline in the living standards of our country has been a longtime theme of our host.
      The thing is though, we define “prosperity” differently than our ancestors did precisely because of the increase in goods available during the time of cheap oil this past hundred years or so.
      Our ancestors celebrated food and family. Prosperity was symbolized by the cornucopia, the horn of plenty which held so much food that it literally spilled out.
      Feasting was the epitome of Good Times in those days and thanks was given for abundance of food.
      Did you see the riot at the Golden Corral when the steak ran out the other day?
      That pretty much sums up the difference, imo.

        I don’t if anyone would be interested in this but I read a paper by Glubb (never had heard of him) about the collapse of empires. It was written about 50 years ago. He had a very interesting theory and the last stage is Intellectualism:

        “Perhaps the most dangerous by-product of
        the Age of Intellect is the unconscious growth of the idea that the human brain can solve the problems of the world. Even on the low level of practical affairs this is patently untrue. Any small human activity, the local bowls club or the ladies’ luncheon club, requires for its survival a measure of self- sacrifice and service on the part of the members. In a wider national sphere, the survival of the nation depends basically on the loyalty and self-sacrifice of the citizens. The impression that the situation can be saved by mental cleverness, without unsel- fishness or human self-dedication, can only lead to collapse.”

        Here’s the whole paper if anyone’s interested.

          • SW February 4, 2022 at 3:21 pm #

            I’m glad to. Another point he makes which I find really interesting is that when the empire is doing well, immigrants flood in but, as it declines and loses prosperity, they revert their loyalty to their country of origin. England appears to have that problem to some degree with the large enclaves of Pakistani. Many have been well assimilated but they’ve also produced terrorists.

        • Paula D February 4, 2022 at 3:21 pm #

          The corollary to that is the belief that money can solve all problems.
          Run out of oil? No problem, just invest a bunch of money and human ingenuity will invent new sources.
          Iron? Coal? Copper? Same thing. With enough money, everything can be replaced.
          This is especially common among Libertarians, I have found.

    “They are done”.
    I wish that were true, but no, they are never “done”. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard “This time Hillary is done”, and you can fill in dozens of other names… Slick Willie, Barry Sotero, Teddy Kennedy, Mitch “the bitch” McConnell, and a host of other big government, free spending, liberty destroying sociopaths. Even when the names change, the deep state goes on. The grifters and authoritarians will posture and deceive until the productive class quits paying attention. Again.

    • Night Owl February 4, 2022 at 11:17 am #

      They are not done. But they also can’t continue on the present course. Too much is coming out.

      Celebrate. The past two years have been a nightmare, and were it not for a number of brave individuals in a cross-section of society, particularly these truckers in Canada, we’d be on the path to living under one of the most evil systems of slavery ever devised.

      The vaccine passport has it a major wall, and this was the linchpin to said system.

      • Slugoon February 4, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

        Absolutely, Owl. The narrative is crumbling although it’s sad that it took two years. I do wonder though how the likes of Austria can continue the vaccine tyranny when it is beyond obvious that (1) they don’t stop infection nor transmission, and (2) we’re now dealing with the common cold.

          I said this a while back, but I think they are just going to try and hold their gains wherever possible.

          The only places where the mandates and/or increasingly strict regulations are proceeding with no discussion to the contrary are places run by WEF Young Leaders.

          Macron, Trudeau, Scholz, Ardern, Andrews and co., and Nehammer. The only exception is Draghi, but he is so deep in that it doesn’t even matter if he was ever attended Schwabby’s fascist school.

          They will fight to the bitter end.

          • Hereward the Woke February 5, 2022 at 6:19 pm #

            Correct, Night Owl. Things are slowly getting clearer. The Fight to The Enders are Australia and a big Euro block of France, Germany, Austria and Italy. We are Switzerland, are as ever, waiting to see who will be the winning side (and what profits we can make) before making our final decision.

          Truckers in Europe will be out tomorrow. There’s even a trucking event from Glasgow to Edinburgh!

          There won’t be big numbers, as not nearly so many truckers (or hauliers/lorry drivers as we call them!) own their own rigs. Most work for haulage companies. But apparently the demonstrations in the UK aren’t limited to trucks. I guess anyone on four wheels can join them.

          The media will of course ignore them or make up stories about people peeing on statues, mugging grannies and stealing crisps* from toddlers.

      Nothing says to me quite so clearly that America is in decline than the way it treats its’ children. Junk food that has created an epidemic of juvenile diabetes and obesity, fast food outlets in school cafeterias and soft drink machines, a foster care system that loses children and places them in overcrowded homes (there’s a cottage industry now in the US where people make their living by having as many as 10 foster children), and the sacrifice of their education during the pandemic. And now refusing to let them breathe normally without masks.

        Michelle Obama’s school lunch program actually kept the corporate kid food in the lunches.

        The “guidelines” the participating schools had to follow, just so happened to coincide with the labeling on the packaged, highly processed offerings from Big Food.

        If I were a Cynical Girl, I would say the USDA nutrition guidelines were created to fit the products, and not vice versa.

      They may not hate children, Beryl, they may just like money more.

    Elite thinkers intuitively understand the life cycles of humans, nations, empires and civilizations.

    They not only knew the system was overextended, but chose to detonate the take down in an attempt to stay ahead of the curve.

    Lottery players expect to lose, but of course are ever hopeful for a bonanza. Achieving digital passes and other control mechanisms would have been like winning; Great if pulled off, but not really expected.

    Rather, the geniuses are already prepared for the resumption of traditional rule. The wokesters were their generations useful idiots, sacrificed as a rear guard force.

    What comes next is entirely predictable. Collapse leads to genesis and rebirth, the eternal cycle. So, we return to traditional values emphasizing trust, duty, honor, respect.

      The one-handing dart motion is the real giveaway.

      I had allergy shots for years from multiple nurses and they never used a motion anywhere close to that.

          Beryl

          The vaxx is supposed to be an intramuscular injection. I have been afraid of the injection technique since I read the theory of mRNA. Isolation to the muscle is critical per the advocates of the jab itself.

          Proper technique requires aspiration, drawing back on the plunger looking for blood indicating the needle is in a blood vessel. If so, the injection should not be done, as toxicity, too much drug may be injected directly into the blood stream.

          When I think of the lines of people being injected by all sorts of RNs, the chance of big time toxicity problems as we have witnessed, the adverse effects, is real.

          IMHO, injection should never have been selected for the antigen creation. It has too many variables and requires too much control.

          If the video shows one handed dart technique, it is a phony. Properly done, two hands only.

      • megabeth February 5, 2022 at 2:21 pm #

        I’m a nurse and don’t do the dart maneuver, but a lot of older nurses used to do that. I once got a hep b vaccination from a diploma nurse my mother’s age and she actually wound up with a 1, 2, 3 and let the weight of the syringe sink the needle into my arm! And a lot of nurses do not bother to aspirate, although that is how IM injections are taught.

        A colleague gave me a flu shot while I was on the phone, taking report. Suddenly felt a warm stream down my deltoid, looked, and saw that I was bleeding a puddle on the papers at my elbow. Oops!

    • abbybwood February 4, 2022 at 7:26 pm #

      I worked as a Registered Nurse for 40 years and I was taught that to give an IM (intramuscular) injection (which is required for the jabs), we first had to locate the correct site then we put a tiny air bubble in the syringe to clear the needle then we poked the needle in like placing a dart, then we had to aspirate the plunger to be sure we were not in a blood vessel then we injected.

      Most of the IM’s I gave back in the day were Demerol. Not a great idea to give 100 mg’s of Demerol IV push! Nor the jabs!

      Back in January of 2021 I was reading all I could about how to give the jabs and the information definitely said, “Must be given IM.”

      About 99% of the videos I have seen showing people administering the jabs show them NOT aspirating.

      • megabeth February 5, 2022 at 2:34 pm #

        Ah, the good old Demarol jab in the glut, then sweet relief. I remember getting that during premature labor in 1999. Didn’t they pull it from the market shortly afterward?

        As a psych RN, back in the day, I injected a lot of Ativan/Haldol into the rumps of obstreperous patients. In light of our current disregard for informed consent, I revisited all that court-ordered medication I pushed during that period of my career . . . and had an ugly cry over it. Never again! Sorry, you crazy guys. Very sorry.

      • Paula D February 6, 2022 at 8:21 pm #

        I learned it the same way, Abbywood, including the air bubble to make sure that all of the medicine made it into the muscle. Damn straight it takes two hands.
        I note that a lot of the staged injections are far below the deltoid area you are supposed to use, as well.
        Demerol was suddenly dropped in 2001 after the US invaded Afghanistan, megabeth.
        We were told that it was “dangerous” all of a sudden and the whole damn country switched to morphine.
        Which is made from the opium poppies the US started guarding in Afghanistan. But I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.

      JTinMD, I’m living in a mountainous area, nestled between three live West Java volcanoes: Mt. Gede-Panrango (twofer from one underground source) and Mt. Salak (a.k.a. Mt. Sukhoi).

      The locals all ignore them. “Oh Mister Byron, the volcanoes are extinct.” Not on your life. The last eruption of note was in 1957, which may seem like aeons ago but is only around 9 seconds in volcano-time.

      Bonus: we are downwind from Salak, as the strong breeze off the Java Sea sweeps away all the polllution from Jakarta, the capital, down south our way. It will be ditto for the ashfall when she goes up.

      I never cease to be amazed at how my neighbors are not unnerved by the proximity to a live volcano. It’s what westerners often call “Oriental fatalism”. Also Islamic acceptance of the inevitable.

        ashes, ashes, all fall down, all fall down.

        Picture a bright blue ball
        Just spinning, spinning free
        Dizzy with eternity

        Paint it with a skin of sky,
        Brush in some clouds and sea
        Call it home for you and me

        A peaceful place or so it looks from space
        [A] closer look reveals the human race

        Full of hope, full of grace is the human face
        But afraid we may lay our home to waste

        There’s a fear down here we can’t forget
        Hasn’t got a name just yet
        Always awake, always around
        Singing ashes, ashes all fall down
        (Ashes, ashes all fall down)

        Now watch as the ball revolves and the nighttime falls
        And again the hunt begins, and again the bloodwind calls

        By and by again, the morning sun will rise
        [But] the darkness never goes from some mens eyes (oh no)
        It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets
        It’s taking turf, dividing up meat

        Nightmare spook, piece of heat
        It’s you and me,
        You and me

        Flashblade in ghetto night
        Rudies looking for a fight
        Rat cat alley roll them bones
        Need that cash to feed that jones

        And the politicians throwing stones
        Singing ashes, ashes all fall down
        (Ashes, ashes all fall down)

        Commissars and pin-striped bosses roll the dice
        Any way they fall, guess who gets to pay the price

        Money green, the proletarian gray
        Selling guns instead of food today

        So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
        While the politicians throwing stones
        Singing ashes, ashes all fall down
        (Ashes, ashes all fall down)

        Heartless powers try to tell us what to think
        If the spirit’s sleeping, then the flesh is ink
        History’s page will be neatly carved in stone
        The future’s here we are it we are on our own
        (On our own, on our own! On our own!)

        If the game is lost then we’re all the same
        No one left to place or take the blame

        We will leave this place an empty stone
        Oh that shinning ball
        We can call our home

        So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
        While the politicians are throwing stones
        Singing ashes, ashes all fall down
        (Ashes, ashes all fall down)

        Shooting powders back and forth
        Singing black goes south while white comes north
        And the whole world full of petty wars
        Singing “I got mine and you got yours”

        And the current fashions set the pace
        Lose your step, fall out of grace
        And the radical, he rant and rage,
        Singing “someone got to turn the page!”

        And the rich man in his summer home,
        Singing “just leave well enough alone!”
        But his pants are down, his cover’s blown

        And the politicians throwing stones
        So the kids they dance they shake their bones
        Cause its all too clear were on our own
        Singing ashes, ashes all fall down
        (Ashes, ashes all fall down)

        Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
        It’s dizzying, the possibilities

        Ashes, ashes all fall down
        (Ashes, ashes all fall down)

    Great post. But will the next one be a new coronavirus?
    Maybe. But they have been working on airborne ebola, we know that.
    Also, Bill Gates seems to have a hard-on for a new smallpox epidemic and the US does have a stockpile in Atlanta.

    Local supermarket beginning to resemble third world country under sanctions. Random shortages everywhere, with freezer cases now embarrassingly and undeniably empty.

    It’s a good question regarding what kind of fear campaign will be next. Pretty tough question. A virus that’s actually deadly would kill themselves off. Many of them clinging to power are in their 80s. A false flag would be bumbling and incompetent at this point, with a huge number of people awakened to their tactics. Using failing legacy media to demonize any populist candidates runs the risk of fizzling, especially if food insecurity gets ugly. Using the military to actually kinetically attack the Great American Redneck seems like chewing a very large piece of tough meat with lots of resistance from within the military itself. The deplorables aren’t like the Jews in WW2 who were a very small percentage of the German population. Klaus keeps warning about a cyberattack, but don’t they need a functioning matrix for their central bank digital currency plans and other spy operations?

    • thirdcoastlegend February 4, 2022 at 2:41 pm #

      TaxDonkey-

      I like your final question very much.

      I’ve been turning very similar questions over in my mind.

      I just don’t see how their expectation they can crash the power and telecom grids will work in the real world.

      Neither of those incredibly complex systems can be turned on and off like a light switch. Attempting to do so will cause immense chaos and destruction.

      Yet, the WEF’s stated goals would require far more extensive power and telecom grids than those we already have.

      I can only conclude one of two things.

      If the WEF are sincere about their stated goals, they are totally delusional.

      If the WEF are insincere about their stated goals, they are a death cult.

      Neither conclusion is very appealing.

      • BackRowHeckler February 4, 2022 at 3:20 pm #

        The plan is to dismantle the grid in the USA and W Europe and a smooth ‘Transition to Renewables’, using climate change as justification. WEF is promising a new, better, clean grid, one that is ‘Carbon 0’; only problem is, nothing exists to transition into, and once our energy grid is liquidated — it will never be rebuilt. The upshot will be a more primitive way of life, which parts of Europe is already seeing.

        Cramer was on CNBC last month talking up the Lucid Air, a new EV built by a new company, “The best car ever”. It did look pretty cool, but then he mentioned the cost: $179,000. I was thinking it’d better be f#kkn good for 179Gs! The elite will be driving around in Lucid Airs; everybody else will be riding on their stinking buses from their crumbling high rise apartment building to some useless job in a govt cubicle, but hey, at least you’ve reduced your carbon footprint.

        Hereward, yes I’m aware of the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto and god bless them. I was just making the point that the Jews in WW2 were unarmed and a pretty small percentage of German society so they were much easier to scapegoat. By contrast the deplorables are not only armed but represent quite a few people. They’re not just whites either. I know hispanics out in Red country who identify as deplorables for example. This has got to be a pretty tough nut to crack.

    I may have mentioned this here before, that I basically dropped out of church after they joined the Branch Covidian sect.

    I was not alone, there was a big battle within my church, and within many other churches.

    It was eventually decided from somewhere on high that we would follow along with what the government was ordering us to do.

    I just came across this article, that explains just what happened within Protestant churches.

    This has much larger implications than first meet the eye.

    As we all know by now, the NIH director was all in on covering up some dirty dealings around the origins of the coronavirus early on.

    To think that such a sleazy character was having such and influence on the church, and to think about his motivation for doing so, is both truly sickening and damning.

      I was baffled by the lack of resistance to covid mandates–especially church closings. Some of the bigger churches not only have deep pockets but armies of lawyers on retainer–the Catholic Church, for example. Another wealthy and politcally powerful church in my area is the RLDS, which officially came out in favor of government policies re covid.

    Admiral Rachael Levine speaks:

    Dr. Levine’s full remarks after the swearing in ceremony are below:

    “Thank you very much for entrusting me with this role. I would also like to thank my family and friends for their unwavering support as we take this momentous step together. The opportunity to serve as the head of the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps as a four-star officer is an extraordinary honor and a profound responsibility. I am truly honored to join the ranks of men and women across this great nation who have committed to defend the United States against small and large threats known and unknown. And I promise to uphold that trust to the fullest extent of my abilities. I am proud to follow in my father’s footsteps and two of my uncle’s footsteps, in serving this great nation. My father, Melvin Levine, often spoke about his service in the air force in World War II, a young man in a small town in Massachusetts stepping up to answer the call to serve in Africa and Italy as a Jewish American in World War II. My mother’s brother, Bernard Cohen, served in the Army during World War II, and was stationed in France after D-Day. My father’s brother, Robert Levine, served as a member of the National Guard assigned to Massachusetts, and still resides there. Just as they stepped up to defend our rights to freedom and liberty, I now follow in their storied tradition of service, as I step up to defend the health of our nation, especially now as we face the biggest public health crisis our country and the world has faced in modern times. I stand before you in this uniform ready to be a beacon in these dark days of Covid-19 working to serve you and this great nation. I am honored to serve as the first female four-star officer of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and the first openly transgender four-star officer to serve across any of the eight uniformed services. This is a momentous occasion, and I am honored to take this role for the impact that I can make, and for the historic nature of what it symbolizes. I stand on the shoulders of those LGBTQ+ individuals who came before me, both known and unknown. May this appointment today be the first of many more to come, as we create a diverse and more inclusive future. Diversity makes us stronger. Each person has a different perspective and different strengths that they bring to make the whole community stronger. The time is now for our country to continue to move the bar forward for diversity. And I am proud to wear this uniform and answer that call. Earlier I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Now I pledge my commitment to you. I pledge to be a steward of the nation’s health. I commit to you that I’ll be rigorous in my approach. I will follow the science to build a healthier future where we work to create an environment in which no one is left behind. The health of our nation is paramount. Everyone should be treated with love, respect, and compassion. Thank you.”

    Jarek: Whites have the right to organize and advocate on our own behalf just like any other group. To deny this is to deny us our civil rights.

    Malkin (not White) is a most valuable ally. Why does she do it? What’s in it for her? She’s taken a massive hit, once being a star in Conservative Inc., but no longer. Well, maybe because we’re right? And because she cares about the Truth in and of itself, and not just for what it can do for her?

          @ Jarek:

          Truth be told, when one become a parent, it is a given that the rest of your life will be devoted your children. Slavery is what you signed up for, if you choose to call it that, though I think it would be more appropriate to call it duty, devotion, self-sacrifice, honor, love, etc. What is puzzling is the resentment many men seem to feel about this. I was pretty much a slave to my kids when they were growing up–with literally all my energy and resources devoted to providing for their needs and wants–and I never felt the least bit of resentment about it. They are your all, and you would give your life for them–which you will, in a practical, everyday sense. You will sit up all night with them when they’re sick and go out in a blizzard to write a hot check to buy them medicine. Men, of course, can’t be troubled to change a diaper.

          Life is essentially a reproductive cycle. Hence, women’s role is primary. Men exist to provide the support structure for women and children.

            The Villages Are In Trouble

            Many, if not all men would do the same, Anthea– sit up all night, etcetera– and some women end up in prison for child and other forms of abuse/neglect.
            Sometimes it is because they were on hard drugs or other things somehow compromising, such as cultural pressures to conform to roles and whatnot– pressures and roles that have become, themselves, compromised.

            That writ, maybe the so-called Woke do have some good points WRT male, female and/or gender roles and their meanings, despite how they then compromise their messaging and so forth.

            Once the babies are born, perhaps, as it is said, it takes a village to raise a child.

            Naturally, as most all of us likely know here at Our Daddy, JHK’s Clusterfuck Nation, the villages are in deep trouble.

      Apparently Gucci stores are a target on the West Coast and in NYC for smash and grab mob operations — entire inventories have been wiped out in a matter of a few minutes. The beauty of it is, in 2020, when urban riots began percolating and central cities were on fire, Gucci pledged large amounts of money to BLM, Revolution, and The Cause ahahahahaha ahahahaha.

    As on January Sixth, when any group of people like the Canadian Truckers dares defy the official narrative, the woke load up the ol’ manure spreader with the same epithets: “racist, anti Semitic, trans phobic,” etc, etc. How do they know these people, ninety-nine per cent of whom are well-behaved, embody these odious character defects? They must, because – well, because they’re grubby working class people, who need to shower after they come home from work and have never had a professional manicure.

    And, as always, this smokescreen betrays America’s Ur-prejudice: hateful class bigotry.

    The woke have an exquisite instinct for sensing the most subtle tincture of any of the many phobias on their shits list, but needn’t worry about manifesting the most intense, visceral class bigotry, because they and their associates all share it.

    Trudeau 2’s blackface addiction [four times caught on video] is the result of trying to purge his native indigenous lineage. His facial features, the straight black hair, the high cheekbones, the tomahawk nose are proof enough. The most incriminating factor, however, is the brownish tinge color of the face. It is quite obvious hidden in plain sight even with the usual heavy tv makeup. Note the obvious stark contrast to caucasion people sometimes seen on the screen with him. Richard Gwyn’s ‘the Northern Magus’ on Trudeau 1 flatly said, ‘he looks like an indian’. He further explains no real birth certificate was ever found. They had to manufacture one when he became the PM. Trudeau 1 was a full indian and adopted by affluent white folks. Sounds familiar, much like one of your Presidents who was born in Africa or was it Malaysia. Trudeau 1 died of colon cancer; poetic justice or what! Nowadays, Trudeau 2 is giving billions away to his relatives; the native indigenous first nations. He also has a native totem tatoo conspicuous when getting the jabs. The defense rests.

          Mary

          Absolutely correct.

          Once the lungs start to gel up, as shown by autopsies, and the alveoli lose their elasticity, venting becomes worthless as well as any curative medication. Venting let’s a patient hold on but beyond a certain point of the gelling continuing, venting becomes useless.

          Think of lungs as a spongy space that holds about two times the required volume to exchange O2 and CO2 as a kid. We lose effective volume to emphysema, obesity, heart disease, rib muscle stiffness, repeated disease attacks causing fibrosis scarring. Each reduction decreases the effective volume of the lungs until they can not supply the exchange adequately, first inability to tolerate exercise, then requiring O2 support and finally death.

          Not treating until the last stage is really stupid. Venting the last stage in the middle of a progressive disease is worthless. They have not figured out how to stop the gel filling of the lungs, which means that once folks are at that point, that is it. That is why the fatality rate on vents is so high.

          I have lost most of my faith in the medical PTB, whether they are stupid or doing this on purpose makes little difference. Picture what would have been going on right now if Omicron BA1 and BA2 had come in with an increase in ferocity as well as transmissibility.

      The Slant 6 was a wonderful engine. I had a ’64 Plymouth Valiant that ran it. Unfortunately by 1973 the body rust was so bad the steering got out of alignment and could not be repaired economically. When it failed inspection that fall, I junked it.

        Those old unibody 6 bangers in the 60’s were the best. Pure junk, but fun as hell while they lasted. I drove a ’65 Mercury Comet all over North FL and S Georgia in the early 80’s while in the USAF. Finally upgraded and sold it off in ’86 for $200 or so after going through 3 rear ends (junkyard differentials were all junk too), a gas tank (leaks, top of the gas tank was the trunk floor), motor mounts (fair wear and tear), and a front end rebuild. Two weeks later I see it abandoned next to the Beemis Highway outside Valdosta GA. The unibody had rusted out so bad that the driver’s side A frame could no longer get a grip and the whole wheel/suspension assembly collapsed. The thing had been a “base car,” going from airman to airman for decades, so it served its purpose well while it lasted. Had several trips around the odometer on it. Fun car, but I just wish I’d beat it harder.

        • Disaffected February 4, 2022 at 6:08 pm #

          Speaking of beating cars. I had a buddy in HS who drove a ’65 Chevy Nova with the venerable 230 CID 6. We had an in with the night security guard down at the local scrap yard, so we had all the free junk parts we could steal in one evening. Suffice it to say, we both were into drinking beer and working on cars and Kenny loved to beat the shit out of ’em to enable more of the former.

          Anyway, the stupid fuck loved his smoky burnouts, so he found the steepest hill in town – must have been a good 30% pitch for a block or two. He’d oil up the rear tires just for extra fun, get ‘er rolling forward down the hill with the tranny in reverse and the clutch disengaged, then rev the motor up to redline and drop the clutch. Fun, noise, smoke(!!!!!), and seriously pissed off nearby residents soon followed. Had more fun with that car than a pair of juvenile delinquents should ever be allowed.

            The rise of cost versus income shows the erosion of monetary credibility that inflationary pressure causes. If the two stay even, salaries keep up with the cost of living, people stay satisfied and faith in the system remains. Money is just paper.

            When costs start going up faster than salaries, especially fueled by rising interest rates, the SHTF. You are about to witness this. Biden has goosed the inflation machine with his running the paper mill with no back up. Watching the Fed trying to control inflation, their primary job, will just accelerate the spiral until it slows the economy, eg stagflation. Last time, the 70s, interest rates went to >15% before things started correcting. The Reagan recession 81-82, was the result of the slow down.

            Biden, not recognizing inflation, is jeopardizing the economy. The last job report, showing the number of created jobs 4x expected may be a signal that inflation is starting to take off as more and more folks need to work to keep up.

          Well I came here in 1976 , so all I can talk about on that score is riding around in Traubant’s occasionally.

          I’m now quite partial to them abstractly because they were cheap.

          In America , believe it or not , the first car I drove , and the car I learned to drive in ,

          was a 1950 Chrysler Desoto.

          I know shit about auto mechanics , but it was a wonderful car.

          Had a transmission called ” Fluid Drive ” which was a hybrid .

          You had a clutch , and had to shift from a stop . Once moving , and in top gear , it would then shift itself.

          Beautiful car too , a perfectly rounded tubby style. The front end was a mass of ( cheap ) chrome with an honest – to – God little statue of a Spanish Conquistador.

          If I ever got rich I would want it back , if all it did was sit in a shed on blocks.

          Ha! I’m sorry to say that I grew up in a fairly nondescript urban area with a 50hp Ford Fiesta.

          The best I can offer is being raced off lights by the SR Novas that were quite prolific in Cannock.

          I did however have a school friend whose dad owned a very British Westfield kit car. (I’m not sure how many Westfields or Caterhams get exported to the US but you may have seen one.)

          We watched him building this thing for months and when it was finished he would go out in it in a tweed flat cap with a piece of string tying the hat to the rear frame so it wouldn’t get lost when blown off. I think he tried double-sided tape at one point but then had to use JIF to get the sticky marks off his head.

        I had a 1970 Plymouth Duster. What a great car. Mechanics used to marvel at the slant 6 engine-the car purred. I kept it for 9 years and then sold it to a friend only because I was able to get an 8 cylinder 1977 Chevy Impala for a steal at a car auction. I ended up keeping that car for 17 years, but I felt bad letting the Duster go.

        Over the years the Chevy got so many dents and dings that when I pulled up at a light or needed to drive aggressively, no one would challenge me after looking at my cars condition.

          I like cars–probably too much for my own good.

          Cars are “relative”, not absolute. The greatness of a car (or lack thereof) must be assessed in the context of the year the car was made, the era it ran in, and what other cars of that era were available.

          Some people will say, the Duster was nice, but my 2015 Camry is so much better in every way.

          No kidding!

          That totally misses the point. In 1970, that Camry was 45 years in the future! That’s a lot of progress! What other cars could you have gotten in 1970? At what price (a Mercedes cost over 2x a Duster then–was it twice as good? It was better in general, yes, but as far as the engine/trans, the common Duster was the better car) What was good then?

          That 1970 Duster was a great car, for sure. The slant six was arguably the best six-cylinder engine in America, in the world!

          Actually, in 1970, that Duster and it’s Dart/Valiant siblings, was the Toyota Camry of it’s era. Sensible. Economical. Reliable. Room for four and good size trunk. Not cheap. Same automotive virtues.

          In fact, for the long emergency, a Duster (or better yet, it’s sedan siblings, the Dodge Dart and Plymouth Valiant) maybe be one of the best cars to have. Simple, serviceable, robust, reasonably modern (much more so than a 1949 Ford or a VW Beetle).

          JHK has pointed out often, we are headed toward “simpler living arrangements”. My corollary, if I may, is that we are going backward in time. We will have less stuff, less mobility, as energy, water, and capital get scarce. But I hope there is still access to motor fuel, engine oil, and basic car parts. There will be access to knowledge about cars, and repair skills that people did not have in 1930 or 1940.

          A car will be a nice luxury.

          Yes, older cars required more maintenance. They needed to be tuned-up annually. They need spark plug changes. Underneath, they needed to be “greased”. They required more manual labor, but simpler labor.

          America’s car hobby means there remains a large supply of parts for…older American cars and VW Beetles. If the Cubans can keep American cars from the 1950s on the road for decades, for all our dysfunction, I think Americans can keep American cars from the 1960s going just as long, if not longer.

          I got carried away, but…. that 1977 Impala…. cars are relative, and the 1977 Chevy Caprice/Impala was probably GM’s best car ever (relative to other cars in 1977. And in “absolute terms”, it was certainly nicer than the Duster, though the Duster was more fuel-efficient, and had fewer things to break down).

          Yours was a good trade.

          My buddy got a new 78 Caprice and it served him and later his family for 25 years in hilly Pennsylvania. I’m sure if it wasn’t reliable, it would have been disposed of much sooner….

    • SpeedyBB February 5, 2022 at 9:38 am #

      My dad gave me a new Plymouth Valiant in 1962. I drove it like a Formula 1 Car, raced it in hillclimbs and it never broke.

      That Slant 6 was one of the sweetest engines ever to come out of Detroit.

            Predators don’t care what system or means to use to exploit. They live solely to exploit. Governments are their employees and lackeys and apologists. As is State Corporate Media, the College Miseducation System, the defanged Organized Religions of the World, and all of us We the People who choose to allow ourselves to be used and abused.

            These malformed excuses for human beings have their filthy hands on all levels of power. The question for the Ages right now is whether They go ahead and yell Checkmate over We the People for the win, or whether We knock the game board over and keep our humanity and a useful reason to live.

            Could go either way. But it’s always tough to win a game against those who only know how to cheat.

            Thank you MaryQueen. When I was eight years old my Dad’s dog took a chunk out of my face and I went from being an adorable little kid to an evil, ugly scarface (bullying was alive and well back then). It was only by the grace of God through the healing process that I came out of the ridicule that followed me and still does to not hate the world and the cruelty that it dishes out. How I came to care enough for my fellow humans to be able to dedicate so much of my energies to battling all of the bullies I have encountered amazes me, but it clearly is the work of the Lord God. At least in my heart.

        • Walter B February 5, 2022 at 10:18 am #

          Thank you KesaAnna. The problem with the system now is that there is no way to remove those who prey upon their fellow human beings for profit, let alone deal with those that do not care about people. I know that I complain a lot about that but unfortunately I have no solution to the problem. Hopefully trying my best to be a good example may have a positive impact on someone, somewhere.

        Yes, when people don’t care about people it is not a healthy environment for anything.

        The problem today is that many people do not even care FOR THEMSELVES. They act out in all the selfish and self-centered ways you cam act… but that’s not ‘caring’ for one’s self.

        People have been alienated not just from each other but from their own self. In fact, the latter is what causes one not to care about others.

        How will these people ever find their way home? Most, sadly, will not. A few will wake up to their misery as the Predator Class reveals themselves more and more in their frontal assault on Humanity.

        All we can do is keep our own houses in order and not allow spiritual poisons to enter our lives.

      And there are institutionalized corruptions that weren’t even touched on that list.

    Book: ‘Gag Rule: On the Suppression of Dissent and Stifling of Democracy

    “As a director of the U.S. government’s ministry of propaganda during World War II, Archibald MacLeish knew that dissent seldom walks onstage to the sound of warm and welcoming applause. As a poet and later the librarian of Congress, he also knew that liberty has ambitious enemies, and that the survival of the American democracy depends less on the size of its armies than on the capacity of its individual citizens to rely, if only momentarily, on the strength of their own thought. We can’t know what we’re about, or whether we’re telling ourselves too many lies, unless we can see or hear one another think out loud. Tyranny never has much trouble drumming up the smiles of prompt agreement, but a democracy stands in need of as many questions as its citizens can ask of their own stupidity and fear. Unpopular during even the happiest of stock market booms, in time of war dissent attracts the attention of the police. The parade marshals regard any wandering away from the line of march as unpatriotic and disloyal; unlicensed forms of speech come to be confused with treason and registered as crimes.” ~ Lewis Lapham

      Of course no nag gets into heaven. We know that, right ZaZa?

      The most controversial Twilight Zone episode. We’ve had decades of women as “sugar and spice and everything nice” and it really is wearing thin as they strip on camera, wrack up the body count, and then expect to be proposed to on bended knee and then wear white at the wedding and be driven to house with a white picket fence, soon to be all hers when she cashes out.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle February 5, 2022 at 1:53 am #

            Jarek, if the makeup (foundation, eye-liner, eye-shadow, etc.) and fancy garb is removed and the plucked/shaved/waxed/etc. hair is left to grow all back, women look kind of like men. Funny men, gay men, young boys, or maybe even trans men, but men, or males, nonetheless. It’s just different sides of the same coin; practically one-and-the-same, such that men and women are.

            That’s probably why some women may be loathe to dispense with hair removal, makeup and/or foggy/blurry/overexposed/underexposed/cartoonified/etc. photos of themselves. I suppose it might be a little like male peacocks dispensing, if they could/do, with those glamorous feathers.

            Try to see beyond the lingerie, dresses, wacky wardrobes, hairlessness, blurry pics or makeup.

            Maybe also, such as if this makes you feel better, take a gander at some heterosexual female mugshots online.

            Then look at yourself and ask yourself what makes you beautiful (and not even necessarily to yourself) and how you can accentuate that. Then maybe go out more often if only to expose yourself to all those peering eyes. Maybe you’ll overdo it and attract a stalker.

          • Jarek February 5, 2022 at 12:43 pm #

            Well said. Women are funny little men, who dress funny, talk funny, are weak, etc. Losers.

            In our Magnanimity, we allow them their own category where they can shine without be compared to us, and thus not be seen as losers.

            Likewise, men can be seen as failed women. Under the reign of Feminism, women have been viciously attacking us like this for generations. They didn’t have to embrace Feminism, but they did. They love trashing men. Secret: Women bond with other women by trashing men. Do I mean talking shit about their boyfriends and husbands? Yup. Are we better than them in this regard? Yup.

            Oh, they don’t like the turnabout one bit. But oh how they have earned it!

            Perhaps the above it one reason for the accentuation of difference. Inwardly the sexes are quite different, so it makes sense to mark that outwardly, both in appearance and social roles.

          • The Man They Call Zazelle February 6, 2022 at 6:14 am #

            But you love them anyway? Love-hate? Something else?

            But I was being partly tongue-in-cheek/sarcastic/teasing, if serious as well.

            Based on the incel tip, I was also curious to see what kind of a response, if any, you’d offer.

            Long ago, at a knitting meetup, I once had a female fellow knitter tell me that, to paraphrase somewhat, men were just ‘funny big women’.

            So there you go; different sides of the same coin.

            I would be cautious about painting an entire set of anything/anyone with too broad a brush, women included.

            Lastly, about the men are death thing you mentioned: Death is life. We kill to eat. And we die to make room for new life on this planet. If we didn’t, we’d likely overrun it in a matter of a couple of years.

            Maybe we even die to eventually go where the universe takes itself as it, too, dies; maybe to another universe that is born.

        If some feel they ‘crave’ a coercive Daddy (-State) to tell them what to do, that’s their prerogative as long as they don’t think everyone needs that.

            Peasants can do all of that – and they were notoriously submissive to Church and State.

            Hunter Gatherers were better exemplars of your ideal. Where is Gustaph? I have some sympathy with this pov. The Bushmen worked 15 hours a week. Civilization would have justified itself in my book if it had given us this degree of leisure (for those that wanted it) or in other words, helped to break down the division between work and play or productive and unproductive. Instead it has chosen to replace and kill us.

            And no/yes, even they had a loose hierarchy of elders and natural leaders, like chiefs and shamans. But based based on the power that people naturally gave to them because of their real merits in serving the people.

            If one can’t follow someone who knows better than you in a given situation, you aren’t grown up. Or you state your opinion and another is chosen by the group or the leader, can you handle it? Go along anyway? Such is social life. And as the Ancient Greeks said, A man alone is either an animal or a god. And gods are far fewer than animals….

            The Syrian Church ordered Simon Stylies to come down off his pillar. He immediately obeyed without murmuring. So they let him go back up again. The Greek and Egyptian Churches were similar. Want to be a hermit? Later, much. After you’ve learned to be part of the monastery. It’s no small thing to be alone and happy, so much a part of the Community that you don’t need its physical presence much anymore.

            Life is constantly evolving.

            If we can’t in large part figure out relative anarchy, it may be our species’ lot in life to keep crashing our societies after a time, due in large part perhaps to inequity, non-consensuality and/or environmental degradation, which is probably related to the first two.

            Non-consensual, ‘narcissistic’, navel-gazing impositions on our ecosphere is a recipe for undermining it and therefore, over time, undermining the survival of our societies and our survival as a species.

            Anarchy is, in a sense, love.

            I found a beautiful book long ago: Homo Ludens or Man the Player. I was too young and not scholarly enough at that point to get into it. But I understood at a deep level.

            How beautiful to spiral again over the Hunter Gatherer stage, but this time by choice or at at a higher level.

    For Alba. I got this from American Renaissance, but since she has a bee in her bonnet about them, I went to the original article.

    Third World immigration was always about replacing Whites and destroying Western Civilization. Baron Kalergi said as much back in the early 1900’s. This was The Plan. Evidently as a half Austrian/Japanese, he did not identify with his Austrian father. A tormented soul, he wanted revenge and used his inheritance to work just such revenge.

    The National Socialists knew about the Kalergi Plan – backed by the Rothschilds. Euro-American Liberal Bozos did not. You should have listened. Instead you destroyed the people who were fighting for you.

    But a question that gave me pause. Who is Justin Trudeau? Certainly not a representative of the majority in the Great White North it would seem. But plausibly Trudeau could very well be Fidel Castro’s son. The connections are compelling.

        Meanwhile, they will presumably blame the increase in fast-track cancers, and aggressive cancers and mets in people whose cancer was cured or in remission, only on lockdowns (in ‘lessons we have learned’ speeches) and not on the vaxxes.

            Jarek, TE Lawrence owned 8 Brougham (sp) motorcycles, which were state of the art in the 1920s and 1930s, and would be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars apiece today. It is the gold standard of British motorcycles, even more so than the Vincent. For all Lawrence’s literary, cultural and military achievements, ironically, his greatest contribution to humanity was to make sportsmen aware of the need for motorcycle helmets, saving many lives.

            I was reading about the history of the Ct State Police; founded in 1903, what stood out is that the 1st five on duty fatalities were the result of motorcycle accidents (on Indian Motorcycles)

Later I had a second-hand Honda Civic (1100cc?) for a few years, until I sold it for £200 or so 20 years ago. While married previously I shared my husband’s Peugeot 104 for a year or so in the late 70s until we got rid of it, as it was a choice between the mortgage and the car.

      This is absolutely incredible.
      It is outright theft.
      Probably most of those donations were made via credit card.

      The owners of the credit cards should immediately cancel the payments and, if necessary, start a dispute with GoFundMe.

      If donations were made via debit cards, they should notify their banks that those withdrawals have been misappropriated, rescind authorization for the withdrawal, and to demand the money back from GoFundMe.

      If the donations were made via some idiotic thing like AppleWallet etc. the owners should undertake whatever measures needed to rescind authorization.

      The public also should demand that GoFundMe reveal where it has sent the money—to which charities—so that we know which charities NOT to donate to.

      Furhtermore, GoFundMe itself should be attacked and, of course, boycotted.

      It seems to me to be much better to find an honest bank and set up an account with an account number to send donations. Of course a lot of people no longer even know what a check/cheque is.

      • Night Owl February 5, 2022 at 11:05 am #

        Yeah, it is just sick. I think the total amount donated was 9 million?

        So they are stealing 9 million dollars in donations from working people, and they are going to funnel it back into their corporate friends via their fraudulent charity system.

        • JohnAZ February 5, 2022 at 11:13 am #

          Remember that charities are capitalists creating a sink for capital.

          There are internet charity rating services that show the percentage of money going to the targeted recipients.

          Some are good, some are enriching sources for the creators.

        • Jarek February 5, 2022 at 12:30 pm #

          Looks like perfect grounds for a huge class action law suit. They should at least be made to give the money back to the donors. And failing that, be outed as the thieves they are and shunned from henceforth by all decent people.

        I didn’t ask for a reply, as any such would be insulting, but I enjoyed the rant, and have presumably added another nail to my coffin (full name and address disclosed, but I no longer give a fuck, frankly).

          Knowing that the Masters of the Universe have targeted you for extinction has a remarkable way of clearing the mind of the nonsense that we used to think mattered.

            Like Beach Boy, the little Syrian boy who drowned trying to invade Europe. The authorities rearranged his body for the phtographers. They want to kill millions of kids but want us to care about him. He is a chain they put on our minds and hearts.

            Or “racism”. The race we should be caring about is our own. If you have energy to care about other races at his point, then you aren’t caring about your own.

          I’m getting close to not giving a fuck, either. I’m very glad you inundate them with rants. That’s what needs to happen.

          They need to be reminded that there are intelligent people who aren’t buying their bullshit out there.

          In any case, the charade is an echo-chamber. Only those inside it believe all the bullshit. And they are a smaller and smaller chamber.

            Actually, I didn’t let them away with being thought ignorant. I specifically said they could not possibly know either the agenda behind all this, or the fact that the genetic injectables were causing miscarriages, still births, neonatal deaths, heart attacks, strokes, serious neurological symptoms, paralysis, blindness, aggressive fast-track cancers, and hundreds of thousands of deaths. I finished by telling them I I realised that they, Fiona Bruce, the BBC and the government were all ‘just following orders’, but asked if there was anyone left with a moral conscience. Then I ticked the ‘no reply’ button, because why would you sully your ears?

            Just having the courage, as an employee, to say ‘no, I will not take part in this’ seems to be considered some kind of psychological illness.

I’ll put it with the shorter 17-minute clip that includes the adverse reactions from the military, as it describes the cancer reactions, which this one doesn’t. Excellent, nevertheless. If you try to include everything that matters you end up with almost the full five hours!

            No need to apologise – I didn’t actually mean I was going to put it on here (I already have, I think) – I’m actually going to send it to my brainwashed brother, who had prostate cancer a few years ago.

            But here it is – the cancer part is helpfully right at the beginning. It’s not just the first guy (lawyer for military victims and doctors?) – several of the doctors take it on, including Ryan Cole.

    I think it is safe to say that Ivermectin is now known by most sane people. We must continue to beat the Ivermectin drum and help people to acquire it as much as possible, but it is time to start aggressively spreading the word about Vitamin D, which appears to be a massively important and severely deficient human nutrient that staves off disease, including cold and flu viruses.

    Yes, Vitamin D is put into milk because Holstein cows (the black-and-white breed which produces nearly 100% of the milk supply today) do NOT produce Vitamin D in their milk, so it is added back in. Jersey and Guernsey cows DO produce Vitamin D in their milk, but this milk is considered Artiginal, and is difficult to source and is expensive. This is why grocery store whole milk in the US is called “Vitamin D milk”. The problem is, the amount of Vitamin D added is minuscule, AND adults don’t drink milk in nearly the quantity they used to. So almost everyone is Vitamin D deficient. Put on top of this the lack of outdoor work and sun exposure, which is how humans SHOULD acquire Vitamin D, and you can see why people seem to be far more susceptible to colds and flus than they were 50+ years ago.

    Now, who do you know that is always covered from head to toe, year round, and probably doesn’t do much outdoor labor or recreation with their skin exposed?

    Cassocked priests.

    Two priests in Rome in the summer.

    So, Nurse Claire suggested that we laity start telling our priests about Vitamin D, and buying and giving them Vitamin D3 + Vitamin K2 supplement drops as a form of tithing. Vitamin D3+K2 drops are inexpensive and extremely effective and easy to take. I myself take 10 drops per day, which is 10,000 International Units. Nurse Claire does the same and just had her Vitamin D level checked via blood test, and her levels were ideal.

    It is very, very important that Vitamin D3 be taken WITH Vitamin K2 in order to facilitate absorption and prevent possible over-calcification in the body, particularly in the blood vessels. D3+K2 drops can be purchased in most pharmacies, health food stores, and online.

    Here is an article out of Israel showing that Vitamin D levels essentially dictated how a person handled the Coof. I strongly suspect that this dynamic is related to the phenomenon of children being almost completely unaffected by the Coof since the beginning. Between the higher levels of milk consumption AND outdoor play time, the non-deficiency of Vitamin D among children yields a natural shield. This would also explain the massive seasonality of Colds and Flus in general, and how colds and flus drop to a statistical near-zero every summer as everyone gets more sun.

    The Coof: a virus SO DEADLY that over the counter vitamins prevent it.

    Buy yourself, your priests, and your elderly family, friends and neighbors some liquid sunshine today! Remember, make sure the bottle says “D3+K2”. 10 drops per day is perfect for most adults.

    As always, I hope this helps.

    • Tate February 5, 2022 at 2:10 pm #

      I wonder what the ratio of D3 is in the drops to K2? It just says the total of D3 + K2 is 1,000 IU per drop. I take them separately but probably not in the ideal ratio. Have to check this out.

      • Jarek February 5, 2022 at 2:30 pm #

        The page itself show pictures of different brands that are already mixed. Maybe buy one of them or figure it out from the back of one such bottle at your nearest natural market.

    If it was not for US meddling, no one would be confused about the fact that the Ukraine is Russia, Taiwan is China, and “democracy” is a code word for “aggressively marketing gay sex to children.”

    The situation around Ukraine has been one of the centerpieces of US foreign policy over the past few months, with top officials and media repeatedly warning of an allegedly impending “invasion” of the country by Russia. Moscow has consistently denied having any plans of the sort.

    Earlier in the day, Russia and China released a large joint statement announcing their plans to deepen their cooperation in a vast number of areas. The statement came amid a visit of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to China at the invitation of his counterpart, China’s President Xi Jinping.

    “Friendship between the two States has no limits, there are no ‘forbidden’ areas of cooperation,” the statement reads.

    That’s what I keep trying to tell people.

    Sino-Friendship is limitless.

    It’s like the famous Meat Loaf song, “I Would Do Anything for Love.”

    But instead of saying “I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that,” the anthem of Sino-Friendship is “I would do anything for love, including that.”

    Or, if there was a “but I won’t do that” it would be “but I won’t sell you low quality products at unreasonable prices.”

    It’s no wonder China was planning to have Meat Loaf perform at the opening ceremony of the Olympics before his untimely demise.

    As apparently people are reading this website, let me just say again: China and Russia MUST HAVE a NATO Article 5-style suicide pact.

    The US is incompetent and weak and it is run by old people and gay cowards.

    There is a significant chance they would just back off of this war completely if they thought it would get them nuked.

    Jarek: Poor Oceania! Out thought and out gunned by the Eurasia/East Asian Alliance of the Last Days. Gog and Magog! Scripture doesn’t even mention us at the end. We’re toast once the Great City (Gotham) gets really bright, like a thousand suns.

        .
        REV 18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2 With a mighty voice he shouted:

        “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’[a]
        She has become a dwelling for demons
        and a haunt for every impure spirit,
        a haunt for every unclean bird,
        a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
        3 For all the nations have drunk
        the maddening wine of her adulteries.
        The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
        and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

            AND it is written…

            Nimrod Ruled With The Garments Which Elohim Made For Adam And His Woman
            Nimrod had the garments that Yehovah made for Adam and his woman; they had been handed down to him through Ham and made him strong. It was these garments that were coveted by Esau.

            Yasher 7:24 And the garments of skin which God made for Adam and his woman, when they went out of the garden, were given to Cush.
            25 For after the death of Adam and his woman, the garments were given to Enoch, the son of Jared, and when Enoch was taken up to God, he gave them to Methuselah, his son.
            26 And at the death of Methuselah, Noah took them and brought them to the ark, and they were with him until he went out of the ark.
            27 And in their going out, Ham stole those garments from Noah his father, and he took them and hid them from his brothers.
            28 And when Ham begat his first-born Cush, he gave him the garments in secret, and they were with Cush many days.
            29 And Cush also concealed them from his sons and brothers, and when Cush had begotten Nimrod, he gave him those garments through his love for him, and Nimrod grew up, and when he was twenty years old he put on those garments.
            30 And Nimrod became strong when he put on the garments, …

            Esau Stole The Garments
            Yasher 27:10 And when Esau saw the mighty men of Nimrod coming at a distance, he fled, and thereby escaped; and Esau took the valuable garments of Nimrod, which Nimrod’s father had bequeathed to Nimrod, and with which Nimrod prevailed over the whole land, and he ran and concealed them in his house.

            And Then Esau Despised His birthright
            Now we know why Esau was so weary when he came from the field and met Jacob and was so nonchalant about his birthright.

            Yasher 27:11 And Esau took those garments and ran into the city on account of Nimrod’s men, and he came unto his father’s house wearied and exhausted from fight, and he was ready to die through grief when he approached his brother Jacob and sat before him.
            12 And he said unto his brother Jacob, Behold I shall die this day, and wherefore then do I want the birthright? And Jacob acted wisely with Esau in this matter, and Esau sold his birthright to Jacob, for it was so brought about by Yehovah.
            13 And Esau’s portion in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham had bought from the sons of Heth for the possession of a burial ground, Esau also sold to Jacob, and Jacob bought all this from his brother Esau for value given.

            Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom. But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.” And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?” Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.” So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way, thus Esau despised his birthright. (Gen 25:29-34)
