It would only be cruel to burden readers with more opprobrious denunciation of the pathetic figure pretending to lead the nation, but it might be fair to ask: what is to be done about him? It’s looking a little bit as though “Joe Biden” is skidding toward resignation. His body language suggests defeat. When newsman Peter Doocy asked him Thursday evening on live TV about the thirteen American soldiers blown up outside the Kabul airport, he folded up in front of the cameras like a broken accordion. Poor optics, as they say in the spin business. This was after he kept the country waiting for five and a half hours to even make an appearance when news of the bombing broke.

His managers installed a “poison pill” named Kamala Harris as his vice-president, and even members of her own party get the vapors at mere fugitive thoughts of her trying to run the country, giggling from one crisis to another. Meanwhile, the veep cut short her tour of Southeast Asia, rushing to aid beleaguered California Governor Gavin Newsom at a rally to fight his recall vote… but then cut short her Newsom rescue mission to fly on to Washington. Electioneering during the greatest hostage crisis in US history probably equals more poor optics. She will presumably spend the days ahead “standing by” on developments, within reach of the Xanax vial — while a claque of party bigwigs importunes her to get rolling on the 25th amendment.

Some of said bigwigs, including the managing parties behind “Joe Biden,” might be cooking up a neat operation in which “Joe Biden” resigns, Ms. Harris gets elevated to POTUS… Ms. Harris appoints Barack Obama vice-president… and then Ms. Harris resigns, making the popular ex-president president again. The 22nd Amendment only prevents presidents from being elected more than twice, not from being appointed by happenstance. Would they dare? Well, why not? They dared to engineer some pretty audacious election hijinks in 2020.

One thing you can count on, the situation has the potential to get a whole lot worse, both for the nation and for “Joe Biden”. Our new Taliban “partners,” assigned to provide security in-and-around Kabul, may prove to be less than steadfast in their duties as hoped. Thursday’s bloodbath hints at their inadequacies. The number of Americans stranded in Afghanistan remains hypothetical, a thousand… six thousand…nobody seems to know. Plus, Gawd knows how many NATO-ally civilian personnel, international NGO workers, and other people of, shall we say, the Western persuasion, remain trapped.

The ISIS suicide bombings made a pretty bold statement, too. If one ventured to say that our new Taliban partners are something less than gentlemen, how would you describe the cadres of Al Qaeda and ISIS? Poor sports? Ruffians? Misogynists? They have the run of Kabul now, the ability to go from door-to-door, rooting Westerners out, something they probably regard as fun. Do you remember from just a few years ago what kinds of things they like to do to their captives? Cut their heads off. (Notice I didn’t say chop.) Roast them in cages. That could start any minute. What then, “Joe Biden”?

But, then, maybe something else happens, something rather shocking: a play to remove the current president by unorthodox means, say, a rising up of parties seemingly outside of US government, including a select group of current and former US military officers? An extraordinary hiatus in the long-running usual procedures around the transfer of power? I can say no more about that because I know no more about it — except there are rumors in the wind and this is at least as dark a moment in our history as Valley Forge, Fort Sumter, Pearl Harbor, Nine-eleven. You can’t overstate how ticked-off some resourceful folks are about the current situation.

Let’s not forget that “Joe Biden” still faces some additional adversities. The Arizona election audit results can be released at any time. They will indicate that the officially certified November 3, 2020, Maricopa County vote bears little resemblance to what has been actually discovered by a scrupulous and exhaustive review of the ballots. The upshot will be a powerful intimation that perhaps “Joe Biden” arrived in his latest federal position by nefarious means… provoking moves in other states to revisit their certified 2020 conclusions, too. The optics will be poor.

Then there is the ongoing Covid 19 hysteria, a world-beating fiasco of tricked-up data and deadly mischief. “Joe Biden” is determined to get everyone in the nation vaccinated with pharmaceutical cocktails that the public has reason to be skeptical about. We know that there have been more serious adverse reactions and deaths from these mRNA shots than anything previously called a “vaccine.” There is reason to believe that the number of these mishaps is, even so, wildly under-reported.

There is plenty of reason to suspect the number of Covid-19 cases reported. The PCR tests have been ruled unreliable, and yet the medical establishment is permitted to use them until December. Is that how we’re still calculating the number of cases? I’ve heard of no other method. What if a substantial number of Covid cases are not Covid at all, but rather reactions to the spike proteins in those already vaxed-up? My guess would be: plenty of them are just that. And is it not clear by now that “vaccinating” half the population does not eradicate the disease but rather creates more variants that are resistant to these mRNA concoctions? The nations around the world that are most fully vaxed-up are also the ones with the highest rates of Covid cases now.

And “Joe Biden” is moving heaven and earth to get every company and institution in America to coerce their employees into getting a shot. Do you have any idea how pissed-off the nation is getting over this — not to mention the avalanche of lies put out by government health officials and the news media for two years about the true origins of the disease and of the mRNA “vaccines?” It’s obvious that this so-called pandemic has become an excuse to push people around.

Events are rushing ahead at a gallop, and events are in charge now, not personalities. “Joe Biden” has days left in the Oval Office. It’s really only a matter of how he gets removed… and what replaces him. Do the people who installed him in office and all his election partisans feel any buyer’s remorse? We’re finding out. Here’s a statement from a leading blogger of the political Left:

    • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 10:23 am #

      It would depend on the wording of the rule that says the VP has to be “eligible” to be president.

      A two-term president isn’t eligible for a third term.

      Kamala isn’t eligible either, because she’s an anchor baby.

      Maybe one side of the Democrats is ready to make this become very important.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 10:55 am #

          That is highly debatable. It may be tried again. Far, far from settled law.

            She was born in Oakland.
            Seriously.

            Settled law?

            Even people born outside of the US (Ted Cruz) can run for president as a natural born American.

            Jus sanguinis

            Citizenship conferred at birth via parents.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 11:55 am #

            Nope. Ted had problems, that needed to be straightened out.

            People born outside the US to Americans are a different situation than Ted.

            Which has nothing to do with Kamala Harris’ situation.

            Not settled at all.

            What’s with the snotty remarks?

          • 100th Avatar August 27, 2021 at 12:10 pm #

            Because the idea that your sitting VP is ineligible for the presidency, despite being born in the US, because her parents were nationals of foreign states, is not just dumb, a waste of time, and inconsequential, it is plain wrong.

          • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 1:05 pm #

            I’m not the only person who thinks along those lines, people with vastly more legal knowledge than I have differ on this issue.

            Th issue isn’t “immigrants”, the issue is “non-citizen”. There is a big difference.

        Beryl…read the 22 Amendment. Only prohibits being elected more than twice, not serving in the office more than twice. When the Amendment was written, nobody was thinking about today’s “unthinkable” situation that we find ourselves in. They were only thinking about not having another FDR situation.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 12:01 pm #

          That part I get, but what about whatever discusses how the vice president shall be appointed in the event the current VP becomes president?

          What covers that?

          My thinking is that wherever it is written about the process, there could be some wording that could be used to argue against Obama being appointed.

        • Pete August 28, 2021 at 11:57 am #

          The ONLY reason they haven’t IGNORED the 2nd amendment, like they do the REST of the constitution is because We the People have NOT ignored the 2nd, we’ve celebrated it!

          The framers were very smart, rightly guided people.

          When those, Democrat and Republican – politicians – who are responsible for this contempt of the constitution, are brought to justice – frontier style – We the People can begin again. If not, we’ll just have to wait until they kill each other – gansta style – because that is what they are. They aren’t ideologs, they are psychopathic, gangsters.

          We the People are not Racist and we’re not Lab Rats. We the people have looked to these politicians to lead our society, and our commerce, yet they have only used our support to further their own gains. Every. Last. One of them. We the people are not enemies unto each other, in spite of the diversity of our views. We must separate from the politicians, and throw off their spell.

          We need to look beyond their charade of law. The have left the law behind in their new normal, and they’re driving the boat. We the People must let go of normal, and understand that we are living in extra-judicial circumstances. Each day that passes without an appropriate response sees our chains shorten and the shackles tighten.

          Because they continue their Pied Piper assault on our young people, and their incessant take over of ‘private’ public boardrooms, institutions of higher learning, and medical science itself. The grift is boundless, because they can manipulate us so easily by way of their full spectrum dominance of our culture.

          The rule of law must be restored, but not in my neighborhood, or your neighborhood, not for white people or black people, not for the vaxxed, or the unvaxxed. We must restore the rule of law and apply it to the political class.

          Let’s stop referring to them as the ‘elites’ or the PTB, or some other nameless, faceless, anonymous boogeyman. We know who they are. They’re on tee vee every night. They’re names are all over SEC filings, patents, registries. They hide in plain sight because we let them, we consent to their behavior.

          I withdraw my consent.

          • diamondlou August 29, 2021 at 3:13 am #

            Well stated, Pete. I hereby withdraw my consent for Prime Minister Trudeau who is abusing his nation (Kanada) in a similar way that “Joe Biden” is abusing his.

      Why wouldn’t they install Killary instead of Obomber?

      In any case, I do concur that Jo Jo Magoo’s days are numbered.

      • Blackbird August 27, 2021 at 7:09 pm #

        Thank you Mary for picking up the black flag of the Hildebeast and waving it for the troops. I think this (Hildebeast walks into the presidency without having to bother with an “election”.) has been the plan for about four and a half years now. It’s her turn (dammit!).

        I have to admit I hadn’t considered a Black Jesus part 2. The Party faithful would be so elated they might accidentally impregnate themselves. I don’t think Barry-O wants the responsibility. The Beautiful People still love him, what else matters?

        But I’m all in on the ‘Beast.

        On the other hand, if the Big Guy dies, and has flies crawling in and out of his orifices, I can see the Party still rolling him out on special occasions, the “press” lobbing him bon-bons, and the Party faithful commenting on how “presidential” he looks and acts – especially when compared to that boob we just threw out.

        • MaryQueen August 28, 2021 at 9:38 am #

          Yes! I think our instincts are correct on this, that they would try to install the Hildebeast.

          And I agree, Barry-O prefers playing with his celebs. It’s obvious he prefers their company to the politicos.

      I was somewhat surprised when Obama became President. But on this here scenario, I’ll play it safe and say it’s possible. Cuz-you-never-know…

    • ThorsHammer August 27, 2021 at 3:45 pm #

      There is a way out of the national quandary in which we find ourselves. Not that “They” will ever choose it.

      “They” (what LIttle Bush used to call “The Deciders.”) could simply give an ultimatum to the pretenders to the throne — Obiden, Harris, and Pelosi— resign immediately or face incarceration and solitary confinement until your trials for treason, bribery by foreign agents and election fraud are completed. In the case of Pelosi she should be required to wear eight designer masks 24/7 until the old bat croaks from oxygen deprivation. Under no condition should she be allowed to ascend to the Witches Throne.

      The only solution that could possibly bring the Dis-United States of America back together is a government of national reconciliation. Within two weeks of the Impostors vacating the White House, a combined vote of all the members of the House and Senate should appoint a Temporary Administrator in place of a President. That non-partisan Administrator should be drawn from the pool of sitting and Ex Governors with only one qualification— they must agree to never hold public office again after their caretaker term is up. Choosing an Administrator from the pool of Governors certainly would include a fair share of scoundrels, but at least they all have administrative experience and would be willing to forgo any thoughts of using the post to vault to a future Presidency.

      Six months after the country entering Administrator Receivership the country should hold new elections. Not the billion dollar charades they have been subject to in the past, but an effort to place an honest individual in the office. A few new principles:
      1- Anyone who has served in the Senate or House within the last 4 years is ineligible. Separation of powers, so to speak!
      2- Any military officer who held a decision making role in the Afghanistan national shame shall be ineligible for public office for life.
      3- Voting for national office shall be by nationwide vote, with no unequal state votes, gerrymandering, and fraudulent manipulation as characterizes the present system.
      4- One person, one vote.
      5- All voting shall be by paper ballot in designated polling places, with voters receiving a copy of their paper ballot to be retained in case of audit. Mandatory hand counts for a significant % of ballots.
      6– Voting should last a full week, with any preliminary release of results and electioneering prohibited under severe penalty.
      7- Proof of citizenship required at point of polling.
      8- A vote of no confidence to enable the President’ , his VP and cabinet to be removed from office as is common in parliamentary systems.
      9– Sixty days maximum campaign period before election is conducted.

      A few small steps toward restoring democracy in the USA—-.

        You put a lot of thought into this and I applaud your enthusiasm and problem-solving approach.

        But you’re making a category error.

        This is not a problem that can be fixed with procedural tweaks.

        It’s an issue of “garbage in, garbage out”.

        “Democracy” has never existed beyond a few short-lived experiments in antiquity. What we’ve got a lot of are republics with democratic elements .
        And even there, the democratic parts are the weak link.

        For a democracy to function long term, the voters have to be worthy of it.
        They never are

        As long as the stupid, the lazy and the apathetic are voting in large numbers the system will self-destruct.

        No amount of tweaks will fix it.

        Say you’re baking a cake. You can vary the baking time, add or delete ingredients, whatever…but you cake will STILL be nasty if the flour is moldy and the eggs are rotten.

        What’s needed are methods to remove the franchise from all but the worthy.

        Such as:
        A written test. Not necessarily hard, it should be passable by anyone who passed civics and keeps up with current events.

        Taxpayers only. If your net utilization of social programs exceeds your total tax liability, you shouldn’t vote. If you can’t manage your own life, you have no business contributing to the management of the nation.

        Universal suffrage is suicide for democratic systems, no matter how well designed that system is.

      • Pete August 28, 2021 at 4:40 pm #

        Are you eliminating the Electoral College in items 3 or 4?

        I cannot abide with a system that gives California or New York that much power. If we must have a popular vote to decide the office, then I would suggest each state be given an equal number of Representatives in the House, and the overall size should be expanded to allow more voices on the floor. This would be more, “e pluribus unum,” as I see it.

        Set matters of efficiency aside for the moment. The reason censorship is so easy to pull of is because there’s really only two voices in our government, and one of them is gagged.

        Reform – Yes.

    • Walter B August 27, 2021 at 10:40 pm #

      Yes indeed, Jim Kunstler is in my mind at least, the poster boy for someone on the liberal left that actually had the ability to see through the bullshit and call out the treasonous motherfuckers for what they really are! It is no “conspiracy”, it is no far fetched illusion, it is a seriously planned out takeover of the entire nation by the powers that wish to assume the position at the top of the hill. The hill of global power and infinite monetary gain!

      The latest move of placing Denny Dimwit in charge with the Wicked Witch of the West as backup to be avoided at all costs was clearly a road sign leading to a cliff frequented by the lemming hearted hoard. Half of the nation’s inhabitants are ready and willing to drop over the edge into oblivion and how many of those that remain can be coerced into following remains to be determined. The real questions are, how far will they push it, how effective will the pushback be, and what is the alternative once the SHTF this Fall? A Trumpumphant return? Another election? A military coup?

      The true mark of how far we have fallen is that no matter how bizarre the option being discussed may be, there are few people out there that can honestly make the argument that “THAT couldn’t happen here”. Ha, ha, ha, anything can happen here deal with it.

      Just a note, Disaffected, that might be relevant: I have found that a number of sites (and more often links from sites) refuse to load unless I disable my VPN (Nord) which is easy enough to do.

      I rarely have any problems with Chrome and have actually gone back to it after a few issues with DuckDuckGo.

    As shocking, infuriating and disgusting as things have become, I’m still betting on the U.S. But we’re going to have to fight for it. Not the wasteful U.S. of the last 60 years polluted with strip malls, burger shacks and muffler shops and certainly not the U.S. riding the Helter Skelter of technological orgasms but a return of the U.S. to what made it great to begin with, even if in the shadow of a World Made By Hand.

      • SouthernYankee August 27, 2021 at 10:18 am #

        That is true TCL. On the other hand, if the vaccine does what many suspect it will do, i.e. kill off a considerable amount of the population, then most of those remaining will not be Woke and we can all get back to business (of some kind). Or perhaps, that has been a corollary objective of the entire scheme from the beginning. To rid the planet of compliant fools.

        • thirdcoastlegend August 27, 2021 at 10:34 am #

          Maybe.

          But you’d think the controllers would want to keep the compliant around because they’re compliant.

          Either the controllers really are playing 4-D chess or they are less intelligent than I thought they were.

          • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 10:43 am #

            They may have a whole series of cataclysms planned. After all, their stated goal is to reduce the human population to 500 million. The current vaccines will only eliminated 1 to 2 billion of the 7.6 billion currently alive.

          • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 27, 2021 at 10:54 am #

            Bill Burr said something similar on Conan a while back. (Not that Bill Burr is to be held up as a pundit of note, he’s a comedian, but he is a rational human attempting to hold on to the liberal LA mindset he feels he still believes in).

            He said (paraphrasing here), “If the vaccine is meant to hurt people, then killing off the ‘sheeple’ that take it would only leave those in opposition to the government, angry people at that point. Why would they want to do that?”

            That said, perhaps the goal IS to keep those capable of logic around.

          • Yohannon August 27, 2021 at 11:16 am #

            Yes, Gates: If we do a good job with these vaccines, we can reduce the population 10 or 15 percent.

          • neurodoc August 27, 2021 at 11:49 am #

            Some think that the controllers, above the level of presidents and prime ministers, are a bunch of inbred psychopaths deluded with the notion that they descendants of Babylonians or some such nonsense. Think Pilgrim Society et al.
            Like all psychopaths they are cunning but not very intelligent, actually rather luke warm IQs. Like all psychopaths, they appear to have overestimated our submission to their plans and underestimated resistance.

            What was Jeff Bezos’s big idea way back when? How did he reach his exalted position?

            It truly boils down to “We’ll make it up in volume.”

            Anybody who’s ever built, owned, or operated a business that sells stuff knows what that means. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much, but Bezos got enough investment over time to turn a River of No Return into Amazon.

            He’s not a genius, just the right con man in the right place at the perfect time.

            We are very short of workers now, and expected to become even more short. Reducing population would collapse the economy, hurting even the super-rich. Reducing the world population to 500 million would put all 500 million back in caves hunting deer with spears. The people who say things like this are the same ones who think groceries grow on supermarket shelves. They have absolutely NO idea of how many workers are behind the scenes making things happen and keeping civilization running.

          • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 8:00 pm #

            rhys,
            True, downsizing will cause tremendous disruptions, But much more to us than to the elite. But don’t think population reduction can’t happen. It has happened often in history.

            The elite believe the earth eco-system is collapsing from the effort to keep us all living the prosperous modern life-style.

            The solution seems clear to them. They certainly don’t intend to return to cave dwelling. They’ve carefully planned exactly how many minions they need to run every aspect of the new global slave state.

        Yeah, but (with the exception of a few fruit-pickers), the “differently demograph-ed” are concentrated in urban areas.

        Once the trucks stop rolling, the cities will see mortality rates of 90+%.

          “Someone died of starvation, every 19 hrs in Detroit alone”

          “Hordes” coming out of the cities to get them.

          • AngryFarmer August 28, 2021 at 2:22 am #

            I don’t worry about the horde as much as some others.

            I know city people. My impression of them is that they are completely helpless.

            Most of them will starve to death in their apartments waiting for sugar-daddy government to save them. By the time they realize that help isn’t coming, they’ll be too weak to form a proper horde.

            Maybe some semi-organized groups like gang-bangers will manage to horde-up…but what chance do they have against rednecks in the woods? They’ll be picked off before they get within 50 miles of me.

            Then there’s the winter….

            I’m not worried about my neighbors.
            Half of them are Amish, and I can produce enough to feed the other half.
            Maybe I’ve listened to that Hank Jr. Song too many times, but I suspect rural America can handle this.

        • Wizard of the Saddle August 27, 2021 at 3:50 pm #

          I honestly have to wonder if the rural population will fare much better than the city dwellers. Less than 2% of the population is involved in agriculture in any serious way, so even much of the rural population is overly dependent on the grocery store for food.

          Likewise, a large majority of the rural population is just as dependent on modern jobs as the urban folks. We simply are no longer a nation of “yoeman farmers” as in Thomas Jefferson’s day. Even if a significant percentage of rural folks can raise gardens and livestock, the fact remains that it will cause enormous disruption to daily life to suddenly expect millions of Americans accustomed to all the easy living and techno dazzle of the 21st century to suddenly revert back to living in something akin to the 1890’s.

          Granted, the prepping craze seems to have gone somewhat more mainstream in recent years and a certain segment of the population may be better prepared for a reversion to a WMBH than would have been the case 20 years ago, but it still is going to be a gigantic cluster fuck.

          One of the biggest problems will be the collapse of the modern medical establishment, Big Pharma, hospital systems, etc. When the big political and/or financial collapse comes, the modern medicine business model collapses with it. Many who have previously been kept alive beyond their natural expiration dates by the expensive miracles of 21st Century medicine no longer will be. Mortality rates will soar amongst diabetics, cancer victims, and others suffering from serious organ failures and/or dread infectious diseases.

          Tip to the young folks: Consider becoming an mortician. You’ll likely have plenty of business in coming years.

          The bottom line is that the collapse is coming and it’s going to be ugly and those of us who are descendants of the founding stock of America are liable to suffer damn near as much as the mutlikulti hordes of more recent arrivals that inhabit our major cities. We need to be clear-eyed about this and not become complacent thinking our lives will be a piece of cake in the aftermath once the 3rd World invaders of our country have mostly perished.

          Nobody will be better off.

          If the country survives and is rebuilt by the survivors, it will be the work of decades….if not centuries. We will likely have to go through another Dark Age in the interim.

          • pranah August 27, 2021 at 5:50 pm #

            …21st Century medicine will no longer be. –Wizard of the Saddle

            WotS, indeed. A youtuber named PatriotNurse addressed this in a vid 11 years ago, which has stuck with me:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J42CLa5iATM

            In this, she discusses, based on her experience as a nurse, who she believes will die when TSHTF.

            Just watched it again–worth watching, IMO, but here’s a synopsis. She says there will be three broad categories of people who’ll likely die when TSHTF.

            1) The physically disabled. Includes brittle diabetics, obese, amputees, wheelchair-bound, people with respiratory issues who depend on oxygen, CPAP. Frail elderly stuck in nursing homes (like those who died of heat stroke when A/C went out during Katrina). Need to be able to MOVE, and not just in a motorized chair like at Wal-Mart.

            2) What she called the stereotypical government housing/welfare recipient (not all welfare recipients are in this category, but many are). Will die in two ways:
            (1) Won’t help themselves; used to government doing everything for them.
            (2) Will become aggressive; start looting; will take advantage of group (1). Subgroup: Druggies. Examples: Alcoholics, addicts such as to benzodiazopines, opiates. When detoxing, need fixes, think you have stuff they need– they will come after =you=. Druggies are the people who one or two bullets might not stop.

            3) Yuppies and neohippies. Neohippies may have skills such as gardening, but tend to have no skills with firearms (can’t defend themselves). Yuppies tend to be in so much debt (mortgages, cars, etc.) and tend to be deficient in prepper-type supplies; are caught up in status quo and heads aren’t around the looming problems–when they realize what’s happening it’ll be too late to catch up.

            This is what she sees. I’d add to this:

            People totally dependent on lifesaving drugs, such as hemophiliacs and transplant patients; type 1 diabetics (must have insulin); many thyroid patients who need thyroid hormone.

            Many cancer patients, current and those that are brewing.

            Many of the blind and probably the deaf, if they don’t have friends or family willing to help.

            Many, many of the mentally ill (I used to work with this population and many are totally dependent on the welfare state for food, shelter, and medicine).

            I’d thought of others, but at the moment they escape me. Anyway, a sobering list! Anyone have other thoughts?

          • rundmc August 27, 2021 at 6:10 pm #

            Of COURSE it’s going to be a gigantic CF. That’s not the point. The point is whether some people can survive, and it’s clear that a sizeable portion of us will be able to. It’s not going to be fun – after all, won’t be able to binge watch your favorite shows any longer. But, there will still be books (that haven’t been burned), livestock and animal and land to keep us fed. I grew up with no electricity and outhouses and water carried from a well to wash. I’m not saying I WANT to go back to that life, but it’s not torture either and I know how easily you can survive – hell – even thrive in that life.

          • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 6:33 pm #

            I beg to differ. I will be binge watching my favorite TV shows and movies. I have about 1,000 DVD’s. I have at least 6 DVD players stockpiled. And I have big batteries which can be recharged by my solar panels. It’s all been field tested.

            Now, I just have to hope I get lots of undisturbed leisure time.

          • rhys12 August 27, 2021 at 7:13 pm #

            Most of the elderly will not survive, so there will be an almost total loss of knowledge and skills. Gangs and warlords will destroy everything they can’t steal. However, after things settle down, the warlords will soon realize they need people with knowledge and skills like blacksmithing, gardening, weaving, etc. Those people will be able to live a fairly decent lifestyle under protection of the Lord. The surviving ignorant will become serfs and slaves.

          • pranah August 27, 2021 at 10:39 pm #

            Further, a great many of the developmentally disabled, those on the autism spectrum, people with dementia, and the frail elderly in general won’t survive. Lots of people’s days are numbered if TSHTF.

      I once went to an erotic poetry reading and one woman’s poetical refrain was, “You have to fight me for it”. She extolled the beauty of the bruises she would receive, not mentioning the ones she would inflict, though she looked quite capable. A ferocious masochist, no easy ride or rider.

      I am unable to connect this memory with the theme and turn it into a meditation. And for that I should apologize. If it tried I probably could, but it wouldn’t be inspired so I’ll refrain.

    Either way, the guy is as much a jerk as the day I met him 20 years ago.

    Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill and Head Coach Mike Vrable – both vaccinated – just tested positive and are now in the protocol. Meanwhile, the league, already testing vaxxed players every two weeks, has proposed moving the timetable up to weekly – for VAXXED players! – even as they continue to tighten the rules and sanction for UNVAXXED players and Mike Florio and Peter King of PFT are calling for mandatory disclosure of players’ vaxx status so as to preserve the integrity of the SPORTS BETTING process. Hmm… what am I missing here?

    • AltoVista August 27, 2021 at 1:48 pm #

      Let’s remember, also: the visible symptoms of ‘covid’ (before the scientifically invalid PCR test was given the ‘gold standard’ green ight by the Gates-owned WHO) were identical to what’s now considered symptomatic of a ‘variant’ in vaxxed individuals .. but also known as proof of vaccine injury. Same same. So then: vax injury is *very likely* being categorized as a covid ‘variant’ based in test that will give you a positive if needed; the reasons for this are obvious. I like the term ‘cover up’, because participating institutions & governments with contractual agreements with Pfizer (see the #pfizerleak docs) are legally bound to assist in preventing the kinds of losses that would definitely occur as a result of widely recognized vax injury. I’d assume the other jab makers have similar agreements.

      • MaryQueen August 27, 2021 at 5:43 pm #

        This has been proven to my satisfaction. That the vaxx injury is being called a variant.

      I have heard Turner’s name but never listened.
      Is this reliable? I mean, concerning the weaponry and technology left behind? Battles often are fought to prevent supply trains falling into the hands of the enemy (there is a lot about this in Josephy, The Civil WAr in the American West).

      Did the Yanks think that all fo this materiel would be controlled by the official Afghan Army? How is it possible that our “intel” agencies get every single event magnitude WRONG? Starting with the collapse of the USSR and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Maybe they just don’t understand the role of humans in human events?

      If Turner’s account and conclusions are correct, the USA is in deeeep s—. And, Biden is in deeeeep s—.

      Footnote on Biden: Few commentators stop to recall that Biden is from Delaware, the usury capital of the USA, where huge financial interests such as credit card companies are headquartered. It is the usurious interest rates and fines that Delaware-headquartered companies are allowed to levy on citizens that have ruined the lives of countless American workers and middle class of all colors and ethnicities; but credit card debt has has contributed especially, statistics show, to the impoverishment of African Americans.

      Biden has been the patron saint of these finance giants since the beginning of his career. Plus a war hawk. What a disaster.

        islander — I tried to tell some of my lefty friends to look at his voting record and that he’s been little more than a lobbyist for cc companies. He and Hillary both voted for a punishing bankruptcy bill during Bush 2’s administration that intentionally cut out student loans. Nuthin’ doin’! He wasn’t Trump and that’s all they cared about.

        I think all those weapons were left behind b/c, in our blind arrogance, they actually believed that the Afghan army would fight off the Taliban for a while and they had plenty of time to leave when it suited them. All military were supposed to be out by May 1st (and the agreement was no American would be killed and none was) then May turned to June to July to August — maybe they decided to wait no longer. I don’t know.

        Biden looks to me to be on the verge of collapse himself. Kamala Harris is going to be the next president. There’s no way Biden can make it to 2024.

    The problem is the old farts like Pelosi, Schumer et al who have their faces so far up the ass of the Deep State can’t see that the impossible is happening. The Titanic is sinking.

    Honestly I hate and abhor politicians which is why I don’t vote but seeing a picture of Old Joe hunched over like that tells me he didn’t want this job but was blackmailed him with his son to take it or the Deep State would have gone after him and his family.

      If a secession or civil war starts, the sides are obvious.

      The leader of the blues with be the Deep State, DC whose job is to protect themselves. They have many cohorts, vassals around, mostly associated with the megalopolises scattered around the country, but mostly on the two coasts. This is the center of the gimme population.

      The rest of the country is going to find out in the near future that the real program of the Deep State is to steal from the rich and give to the poor.

      The real underground policy though is to steal from the middle class as there is not enough rich dollars to do much of anything.

      Medium sized cities down to small towns are going to get clobbered by these Libs. Their conglomerate is going to fight back against the Deep State with the state governments leading the charge. It has already started. It may even divide county vs. county. The key is he who controls the resources, oil, water, transportation, communications will win the fight. Right now, with the exception of communication, the Reds control most everything.

          If Gavin Newsom is recalled in California and Larry Elder wins for governor you will see Dems heads exploding all across the country.

          I already voted for the recall and for Larry Elder.

          Of course the problem will be fraud. It has already begun with hundreds of ballots being stolen.

          For this election 20 million ballots were mailed out. They can be dropped off or postmarked by Election Day which means there won’t be an official tally until seven days after, around September 21st. Plenty of voting skullduggery can happen in a week.

            Being a big $$ bettor, I have a whole US Quarter-dollar coin made of metals not worth $0.25 taped to the refrigerator.

            The bet is Gavin Newsom remains Governor of CA.

            No taker of the opposite position has emerged.

            I’m going with the “Joe Biden” quote:

            “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,”

          • Not_GeorgeT August 27, 2021 at 6:19 pm #

            I have been sorely tempted to acquire a ballot for this CA recall. The act of acquiring it could be voter fraud. Actually using it would be voter fraud (I think, considering how lies are truth and truth are lies).

            The higher moral compass says don’t do it.

            The pragmatist side says do it, then find someone to publish how it is done. Expose the fraud. I’m surprised it hasn’t already been done and publicized.

          • Blackbird August 27, 2021 at 8:38 pm #

            I like your thinking Not_George. I too would like to participate in California’s recall election, as well as the election for a replacement if the recall is successful. I’d finally feel like my vote mattered. Unfortunately, if I understand correctly, non-residents can only vote if they vote against the recall – in fact many don’t even have to vote at all to have their vote count, some might not even have to be alive.

            Maybe the thing to do would be to join the other team, act stupid enough that they trust me with a box of ballots, and do my duty as a citizen of the USA – fill those ballots out. Of course the vote can’t go to the good guy – can’t let him win by fraud – but I’m sure there’s somebody on the ballot I can use to split the bad guy vote. Free shopping and electoral creativity, California – lookin’ better every day.

        Funny thing, that….
        For example:

        water supply originates in 3 upstate counties – Schoharie, Otsego and Delaware.
        Those three counties voted for Trump by more than 3-to-1.
        The streams that feed the aqueducts run right through the farms and hunting camps of people who utterly detest that city.

        A couple dozen rednecks with backhoes could shut down the Rotten Apple ‘s water supply, and they wouldn’t even have to leave their own property to do it.

          Having lived in NYC and Ulster County for most of the 1980s, I can confirm your statement regarding the NYC water supply. There are many lovely reservoirs there, posted with signs announcing NYC’s ownership. Problem is, possession, not “ownership “ will be the only thing in play in the time of troubles.

        I bookmarked it, as its shows plenty of examples of the kinds of playing-with-words-and-definitions chicanery and deliberate setting the bar low of what a drug is supposed to accomplish in order to set the bar so lo that has characterized the “development” of the covid “vaccine”:

He’s done well and with the help of meds has battled back to the point that he now has a job in a county park. Now his boss is telling him to vax or face termination. He’s not keen on the idea,as am I. If he’s fired his prospects of finding employment elsewhere is in question, he has the job he does now due to his disability. I’m hoping his doc will demand an exemption based on his disability. I’m baffled, none of the standing laws such as hipa and the Geneva convention laws apparently apply. Where is the ACLU ?

            I did do the test, and brought my “proof”, but that was literally just a screenshot of an email from CVS showing a date and time, my name, the type of test and the word Negative. If I had wanted to photoshop it, it would have been an effort of about 45 seconds to make it happen.

            I am playing my own game with my own damn body.

            I am building up my immune system with FLCCC recommended supplements and will take Ivermectin should I catch The Rona or a variant.

            I am also going to request the Covid antibody IGg blood screening when I go to my UCLA doctor next month to see if I already had Covid and developed immunity. Will be interesting if they refuse to order it, especially since they are overly eager for me to get jabbed and if already immune the jab could be very detrimental to me.

            We will soon see how scientifically sharp they are and if they actually “care” about my health.

      The ACLU went wokie with the trans agenda. They are now a joke, and doing the opposite of what they originally formed to do (fighting unconstitutional oppression).

      • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 10:52 am #

        The ACLU was only anti-government until their partisans took it over. Now the iron heel of oppression is their own, and they love it!

          A lot of these organizations really need to revise their status.

          They exist as some form of non-profit, don’t they?

          Are they really following the rules if the cause they receive donations for, is no longer the cause they support?

          I don’t know, maybe these places have revised their filings or whatever to reflect what they actually do now, but an awful lot of charities, etc. do an awful lot of misleading, if only in their names.

      I would let them fire him. Record EVERYTHING. Also file a complaint at your county business affairs office, for harassment. They are threatening him with a needle.

      You must go through the motions all the way to being fired. Accept that this will be a temporary inconvenience for him.

      Those on the jab, will die in a matter of years, and non vaxxed individuals will have plenty of opportunity.

      Too often we give up our future and freedom by focusing on the present situation. Make them DO IT. aka COMIT A CRIME. DO NOT LET HIM QUIT.

    • Islander August 27, 2021 at 1:43 pm #

      Hi, Opie,

      Just saw this at America’s Frontline Doctors:

      “Do Not Quit Your Job”

      https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/do-not-quit-your-job/

      “As the mandates are increasing and the “deadlines” fast approach, YOU SHOULD NOT QUIT YOUR JOB. Do not be fooled if your boss says you must resign. Make your boss fire you and do not sign anything or agree to anything that says otherwise. Do not agree with “voluntary resignation.” If you are fired, you are eligible for unemployment. Anything else and you are not. . . .”

      More text. Might be useful.

      • SW August 27, 2021 at 3:15 pm #

        Opie —

        I don’t have any legal advice but I can offer sympathy and this bit of advice. To make this an adversarial situation with your son’s direct boss would (I’m guessing) cause your son a lot of anxiety and confusion. Having a job to go to and function in some capacity as an independent adult is really important for someone with mental health issues and to lose that would be undesirable.

        It’s a trade-off and it’s wrong that anyone has to make that choice just to have a life. I’ve known a lot of people who had covid and are fine and a lot who’ve take the shot and are fine too. Will they drop dead in a couple of years? Maybe.

    • MaryQueen August 28, 2021 at 7:23 pm #

      Oh, Tom Woods updates us about where the ACLU are now with regard to Americans’ constitutional rights being attacked:

      “Remember the American Civil Liberties Union? I had a little fun with them on Twitter by posting the following:

      “Hey, ACLU, your string of outraged Tweets about the encroachments on American liberty occurring via vaccine passport systems must have been deleted by mistake, because I can’t see a single word about it in your feed.”

      They’re not completely inactive on COVID-related things: they are taking action to try to get mask mandates brought back in South Carolina. That, apparently, is a “civil liberty.”

      It’s all too much to take sometimes.”

      • Ron Anselmo August 28, 2021 at 10:28 pm #

        Thanks Mary. Yes, ACLU – another Orwellian named outfit. Just like the ADL – the Anti-Defamation League – whose primary purpose has always been to publicly *defame* anyone who holds beliefs different than their own. A joke.

    This vax hoax is beyond belief. I work in an office of about 15 people, and I’m the only one “unvaxxed.” Meanwhile, 2 of my vaxxed co-workers just spent 2 weeks sick with upper respiratory infections that had the precise symptoms of Covid, but they were not positive for Covid. And my lefty friend in DC who is a rabid vaxxer just got back from vacation and she and her vaxxed son both tested positive for Covid. Her response, “I’m just glad to know the vaccine works.” Wait, what? You got the exact disease you were supposedly inoculated against and that proves the “vaccine” works. With that kind of mindset, you’ll never convince any of the sheeple that this vax thing is a complete hoax.

        • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 11:12 am #

          Yes. One vaccinated individual blames the fact that the vaccines don’t work on the Delta variant, and also on the unvaccinated.

          So, I should get a vaccine for a disease I don’t have, that doesn’t work against the Delta variant, so I can’t infect you with the strain your vaccine doesn’t work against?

          They cannot seem to grasp the fact that none of these shots prevent ANY strain of COVID.

          Pfizer and Pfauci both have used the word “prevent” when referring to this treatment.

He went out of his way to screw over his bass player’s (Nate Mendel) old band (who are much better that FF) by refusing to hand over recordings that were done in his studio (but not with him) and that would constitue a long awaited new album.

    Does anyone think a government that set up the January 6 “insurrectionists” the way they did, would not stoop so low?

    Remember, these people did not care how many people lost their lives in the decades we were in Afghanistan for no good reason at all.

        I could see no reason for the bombing, from the bomber’s standpoint.

        I know why they do it, in support of a cause, and they also believe they will be rewarded in the afterlife.

        But to bomb our military, as they were leaving anyway, does not advance their cause in any way that I can see.

    OK Jim, then what? Spindletop, Persia and Indonesia (Texaco/gulf, BP and shell) were discovered/developed just 40 years before you were born.

    Both WWs were fought over control of these critical resources, and the lives of anyone born in the post-war period (boomers) are based entirely on the outcomes of those global conflicts.

    All global social, economic, political and cultural norms are a result of these discoveries. Take away the sources, and what is left? We are far far past peak, so what comes next?

    That’s why the current topical matter is just noise. OK, we have a coup, a hardliner is installed, the covid show wraps up, etc. Then what?

          • Night Owl August 27, 2021 at 5:34 pm #

            Support networks. Co-op/Obsthof options for food shopping for people locked out of the system, as well as the development of alternative schooling, etc. I dunno how successful it will all be, but I think that things are going to get much worse after the election.

            I think the fraud we saw in the US has been going on here for quite some time. I fully expect to see Baerbock installed and a coalition of WEF puppet parties. The only more mainstream parties that claim they will end this nonsense or at least dial it back are FDP and AFD. Die Basis is the most logical choice, but at least 60 percent of the populace here simply follows orders and is convinced that Basis is one step removed from AFD, who they think are literal Neonazis. Ofc, the Neonazis are already in power.

            I sincerely hope we won’t look like Berlin in a year or so, but I am not very positive at present.

            These are dark days. It is hard being burdened with the knowledge that some of us have.

            Even on this blog, the truth of what is happening around the globe is more or less ignored. Too comfortable many are. Some also too dumb.

            Americans are famous for watching, and then muttering, “It’ll never happen here”.

            Well, guess what?

        • Islander August 27, 2021 at 7:35 pm #

          NO

          Do you think the criminals will actually come after any who try to create an alternative support system and just break it up? How can they do that? Literally smash things like buildings or barns or houses serving as schools?

          At least it sounds like you have a group.

          I have family here but I don’t think they see what is happening. Even though I send emails around all the time to try to get across the extent of the mendacity that we are surrounded with and the emerging truth about the jabs.

          I am glad that at least one guy who lives downstairs in this little apartment building is “Hell, no” on the jabs.

          But I don’t think he realizes the extent of the danger, or the threat. He doesn’t read the internet, the way I do.

          It does seem as though the takeover is further advanced in Germany. It seems incredible that all the states are in lockstep, even though my understanding of the legal structure is that the Laender have quite a lot of independence in many matters.

          Is it because Germans actually more inclined to “follow orders”?

          Around here it basically impossible for me to gauge sentiment about all of this.

          • Night Owl August 28, 2021 at 3:38 pm #

            Yes, I think they will come after alternative networks, but that would be down the road. This group has shown that their intent is to make all comply, but they have to maintain the veneer of democracy until they have a larger segment of the population backed into a corner.

            I am hopeful about at least putting a big kink in the chain given the number of protestors in recent demonstrations, including today in Berlin.

            The states do have independence, but the problem appears to be that they the WEF and co. have installed quite a few Diener at nearly every level of government.

            I don’t think Germans are more inclined to follow orders; the script here is the same as everywhere else: controlled corporate media misinforms the public, fear spreads, and the institutions that keep democracy ticking have been largely captured.

          • Night Owl August 28, 2021 at 3:41 pm #

            Also, I expect the proverbial shit to hit the fan after the coming election.

            The fascist Greens are already talking about mail-in ballots, which is in line with my earlier thoughts that they will likely win via ballot fraud.

    Maybe not the worst Hostage Crisis in American history. I think events in the Boxer Rebellion might have been worse — so far.

    I seriously doubt the shooting is over in Kabul. A lot can happen between now and Aug. 31. Taliban can decide to shut down the airport, they can start shooting landing and departing aircraft out of the sky. As Jim suggests they could. begin publicly executing Westerners. This could get real bad.

    • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 11:13 am #

      A lot can happen after AUG 31, too. Who expects everyone to be evacuated by then? When the Taliban deadline passes and thousands still remain, things could get very interesting..

      • cowbell81 August 27, 2021 at 11:16 am #

          Taliban do not want ISIS anywhere around.

          I think a lot will depend for them on getting control of security and any kind of lawlessness.

          If they want international recognition they will have to act like a government.Russia and China are in the background to make sure the plot does not get lost.

          That makes sense in that the withdrawal fiasco from Afghanistan can be laid entirely on Biden with Harris then being positioned as the one who will get us back on track. This is why she has been absent from the chaos thus far. They don’t want her too closely liked to what went wrong in Afghanistan.

    If you name it then you’ve claimed it TCL. The future is not written in stone except by the words you are committed to. Some may call me naive for the things I say but I don’t believe that negative/pessimistic prognostications hold greater value than hopeful/optimistic ones, no matter what the circumstances may seem to suggest.

    Our words have power and while the comments section of this blog may not be accustomed to hearing much more than Redrocks aforementioned mental masturbations, self defeating assessments, depressing conclusions, etc… I stand my ground alongside our much heralded forefathers. Let’s not frequently quote them and then not ourselves embody what they stood for, for it is at THAT point that we are doomed! Grab your balls ladies and gentlemen!

    I want to register my disgust with the newly minted Libertarians among the Republicans and Conservatives.

    Those pretending not to see that a “passport” created by the government, that the government had no business creating, so to get around its unconstitutionality, the government is suggesting/ordering private businesses to “require”, IS a government requirement.

    These people are all of a sudden standing up for the rights of private business.

    Governor Noem, who lacks the power to prevent businesses from demanding vaccinations and passports, must not have been inside any of her state’s private businesses lately.

    If she had been, I think she’s see a lot of conspicuously posted signs relating to local ordinances and STATE laws.

    Particularly when it comes to bars. But all kinds of businesses, hair salons, markets, restaurants, have a whole slew of laws and regulations from the government binding them.

    That this nonsense “requirement” is being treated as different, only shows how many of our elected leaders bend the knee to Big Pharma.

    Every single one of them. That includes President Trump and Governor DeSantis as well.t

    • thirdcoastlegend August 27, 2021 at 11:01 am #

      Well-state, Beryl.

      The government’s end-around the Constitution by enlisting private businesses as their enforcers is simply nauseating.

      • cowbell81 August 27, 2021 at 11:07 am #

        Yes, because heaven forbid the elected officials actually take some kind of action that might haunt them in an upcoming election. You would think that most lefties, being opposed to big business, would be against this.

        Self protection of the elected officials is another reason why we have so many governors, etc. forcing people to mask up. At least they can say they tried doing something to help people, regardless of how ineffective it was.

            I agree, the logic of those types is simply so contrarian it is hard to wrap your head around it. I also think back to the counter culture protesters of the 1960s protesting big government and big business. Most of those types today are in support of the kill shot vaxx. Again, it is contrarian and defies logic.

            I drink kombucha, eat kimchi, and drink pomegranate juice. It is all very good for the gut! However, I have enough common sense to know when I am being fed a stringer of lies about a high tech chemical that will not do me any good.

I had a mask on (courtesy) and was told that I didn’t need to worry, all of the staff was vaccinated. They couldn’t see my jaw drop and I couldn’t come up with a good reply… Just sheer disbelief.
            On the medical front, the naturopaths and DOs I know are taking a divergent path from the MDs… Definitely not towing the Big Pharma line.

        Yes.

        And I think that unlawful practice of medicine by unlicensed practitioners was what stopped the —I think it was mandatory PCR tests in Portugal.

        I think the argument was that the tests are so unreliable that using them to diagnose illness comes down to an unlicensed person practicing medicine.

      How to Maneuver Around the U.S. Constitution”

  26. Islander August 27, 2021 at 10:53 am #

    The following article by Marcie Smith Parenti at the Gray Zone is long and somewhat wonkish, but it covers a lot of ground and is definitely worth a read:

    https://thegrayzone.com/2021/08/13/cdc-fda-women-covid-19-vaccines-menstrual-disruption/

    “Why won’t the US medical establishment “believe women”? Covid-19 vaccines do not warn about menstrual disruption”

    “Disruption” can mean pretty serious events that include loss of a lot of blood and excrutiating pain.
    Yes, there is still plenty of bias against women’s health concerns in the whole world of Big Pharma. Many of the responses are “It’s all in their heads. You know, wimmin!”

    Nearer the end of this long and well-documented article Parenti takes a look at the obscene profit opportunities in the current reality, and this section might be worth bookmarking to have the figure handy. A few grafs:

    “According to one report, “At least nine people have become new billionaires since the beginning of the pandemic, with a combined net wealth of $19.3bn.” Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine revenue thus far for this year is over $26 billion. [links provided here in original]

    “But wait, those new pharma billionaires will be held accountable if they cut corners and harm people with poorly tested vaccines, right? And surely women who incur large medical bills dealing with their vaccine side effects – like my friend who had to go to the ER and is now getting pestered by billing – can plead their case in the courts, enter their facts into the public record, and be “made whole.”

    “Actually, no. Since the 1986 bipartisan passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act under President Ronald Reagan, American vaccine makers have been totally indemnified against potential lawsuits. . . .

    “And given that the pharmaceutical industry is the largest spender of all corporate lobbies, most U.S. government leaders are particularly ill-equipped to challenge them, as Senator Bernie Sanders tried to highlight in his presidential runs. During the 2020 Democratic primary, Biden was the leading recipient of donations from pharmaceutical companies. [graph here showing pols’ take from Big Pharma]

    . . . ”

    It is a bad joke that the FDA and other agencies are saying there is not cause for concern regarding effects on fertility—they ground this assertion in the lack of data on this! . . .Women are supposed to accept this nonsense. In this and other areas, many statements of “spokespersons” reveal that they view the current wave of shots as an ongoing experiment that they are counting on produce needed data.

    Even transgender women are having problems. What a nasty surprise for them: Welcome to Womanhood!!

    • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 11:30 am #

      I wasn’t aware that Bernie specifically mentioned the pharmaceutical industry.

      That would explain why, even though he is a major sellout in many ways, he was the first government official to state what should have been glaringly obvious to all- the fact that these shots appear to be dangerous to young people.

      President Trump followed suit shortly after, and of course was bashed in the national media for it.

        For the curious and serious, the article offers IMO valuable insights into the feckless and reckless mentality ((;-)) of the FDA.

          In wokie world, we are not allowed to talk about women’s issues without including the trans. That’s why they added that line in the piece. Because if they don’t, they’ll get cancelled.

          It’s nonsense.

            Real women (are they now called cis or some such?) are getting hammered if they stick up for genuine women’s issues and rights as against assaults by transgender women who really want to seize the mike and demand to speak for all women. Look what happened to L K Rowley (Harry Potter author).

      The journal ‘Vaccine’ published an article in march/april or feb/march of 2020 of a DOD study looking at flu vaxxed soldiers and non flu vaxxed soldiers. The flu vaxxed contracted Covid at 3-4X the rate of the non vaxxed, yielding the finite immunity theory. This theory was Discussed heavily in the article, focusing on the idea that the immune system can produce only so many T and B cells, e.g.., and like an army, cannot fight too many fronts at one time. Interesting idea. Sorry I don’t have the reference but, if sufficiently interested, one could get it with MedLine or PubMed.

      • KappaJoe August 27, 2021 at 4:53 pm #

        Or the increasingly toxic adjuvants injected directly into their bloodstream is what “weakened” their immune system.

        In terms of flu vaccination, there are four scenarios:

        1) Poor health now, poor health expected in a few months – don’t get the shot, your health is poor.

        2) Poor health now, expected improved health in a few months – don’t get the shot, your health is poor.

        3) Good health now, good health expected in the future – you could probably tolerate the shot, but your future estimate of health is likely wrong because you got the shot.

        4) Good health now, poor health expected in the future – this is the only scenario where the shot might be of benefit. You could probably tolerate the shot, and if your immunity is expected to greatly weaken in a few months for some reason, the present flu shot may help your future immune system recognize the prevalent flu strain at that time, but only if that flu strain was in the shot. But on the other hand, you took a flu shot chock full of adjuvants directly into your bloodstream which will likely damage your immune system.

      Exactly that has been suggested.

      Also, the apparently current higher-than-normal incidence of these other little viral infections, it has been suggested, is a consequence of lockdown and resultant lack of normal “workout” for the immune system, which thrives on a low level of constant challenge and exposure.

      Sequestering and masking children and pumping them full of mRNA will probably weaken them for life—their ability to fight off normal-level germs.

        Or, as the old bastard was quoted as saying not long thereafter:

            The key to containing the crud at its worst is to catch it early, and do whatever possible to control the immune response from chewing up your organs or making blood clots.

            This government of ours is no longer ours. Of, by and for is a joke.

            BTW, I notice that nothing has been published on what the drugs actually do to push back the infection. Does it control the immune response, does it limit the spread of the virus by blocking receptor sites, or does it kill the virus directly.

    If we as Americans had a high survival-potential, and truly cared about America, we would’ve revolted and hunted down and imprisoned all of these bad actors in our country in government, finance, health, media, Big Pharma, Big Tech, etc. (albeit, I personally would prefer the guillotine to imprisonment).

    Next would be to trace all of this back to the responsible globalists who have designed, launched, and continue to administrate this global takeover… and, imprison them as well (again, I personally would prefer annihilation… capital punishment).

    Forceful, violent revolution is the last remaining solution to this destruction of the West and descent down into a new Dark Ages.

    I’m thinking that the mainstream media that branded the claim that the election was likely stolen as The Big Lie, and covered for the fact that the man who was installed in the rightful winner’s place is a senile puppet compromised by China, bear some measure of responsibility for what just happened in Afghanistan.

    He will likely go down in history as one of the greatest unfortunates to have graced the Oval Office.

    There are a great number of them that came before, but if this escalates (and it will, at the expense of many innocent lives under entirely unnecessary circumstances), Biden will make Jimmy Carter look like Die Hard’s John McClane in comparison.

      And we cannot reform the system, John Pirsig

      to revolt against a government or to avoid repair of a motorcycle because it is a system is to attack effects rather than causes; and as long as the attack is upon effects only, no change is possible. The true system, the real system, is our present construction of systematic thought itself, rationality itself, and if a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory. If a revolution destroys a systematic government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves in the succeeding government. There’s so much talk about the system. And so little understanding

      • cowbell81 August 27, 2021 at 1:26 pm #

        Good point with the factory analogy. Although this is coming at it rather late, we need to ensure we have an educated lower and middle class that supports the American form of democracy as espoused by our Founding Fathers. We must have a return to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution as controlling documents.

        If people fail to understand these documents and how they relate to their lives then we will fall right back into the same trap we are currently trying to escape from.

            I would say that a good part of the reason so many people are so damn dumb is we no longer have a free-market economy (not that we ever did, but we had something much closer to it).

            The need to make an honest living by providing goods or services to your community that they actually want or need tends to focus the mind.

            Up until about 1913, no young person with any sand at all planned to get “a job” except as a stepping stone towards owning his own business or farm. He went to work for someone else only to raise capital and gain knowledge and training in his planned enterprise.

            As a result, a guy (or gal) like this had probably taken a pencil and paper to figuring out his boss’s expenses versus revenues, knew what his boss paid in the way of overhead and how much his boss could pay workers–in, perhaps, the hotel business. He was not planning to demand that the government pass a minimum wage law so he could live comfortably as a bell boy. He was planning to open his own hotel.

            People at that time had probably donned their thinking cap by the time they were fourteen, and had figured out at least the rudiments of the way the real world worked.

            A free-market system will just naturally produce a large number of people who take responsibility–as opposed to expecting the government or their employer to adopt them.

            As a side note, I have a liberal neighbor who seems to believe that when someone gives him a job, this is a contractual agreement where they adopt him and agree to take care of him forever and ever, in a middle-class style of life.

            I think land ownership too is a key element in ensuring economic freedom and a free society. I kind of like the Old Testament arrangement that prevented anyone from suffering permanent alienation from the land–or debt slavery.

            While I’d like to see some arrangement whereby every citizen would own enough land for self-sufficiency, I don’t expect that to happen. Henry George had a kind of alternative plan along those lines that sounds really good on paper, but presupposes an honest government.

        “There’s so much talk about the system. And so little understanding”

        The system is not understood by anybody. Never was, and never will be. Managerial systems are forcing square pegs into round holes. Make a two step system, and it soon becomes four, eight, etc. Exponential growth, and it’s very soon completely unintelligible. It’s a dreadful wrong turn for humans. Now we pay, and later, try again.

        Yes this is 100% spot on.

        We’ve been engineered into infantilized, narcissistic, needy, unspiritual nonstop consumers. This is not going to change, unless some massive catharsis occurs.

    An interesting incident, a man named Martin Kulldorff made this observation:

    “For thousands of years, disease pathogens have spread from person to person. Never before have carriers been blamed for infecting the next sick person. That is a very dangerous ideology.”

    He was corrected by many people, who came up with plenty of examples of barbaric behavior in the past.

    Thereby confirming that what we are seeing now is primitive and ignorant.

    A buddy in Utah just emailed me about getting a prescription for Ivermectin. At the Walgreens pharmacy, they asked him what it was for….since his wife had just gotten the same prescription filled days before, he told them it was for Covid prevention. They refused to fill it.

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 27, 2021 at 1:17 pm #

      Wait…he already had the prescription from a doctor? And the pharmacy refused to fill it?

      • Hardrock August 27, 2021 at 1:35 pm #

        Correct. Prescription from an MD.

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder August 27, 2021 at 1:41 pm #

          Huh. So pharmacists are doctors now.

          I would imagine a formal nudge from the doctor would change their stance.

          • U R IntheVillage August 30, 2021 at 3:01 pm #

            Not so. This has been going on for a year. Doctors are being pressured by their state medical board not to prescribe ivermectin or HCQ for Covid. If they are employed physicians (i.e., owned by a hospital or large clinic, as opposed to being in private practice, a rarity these days) they have simply been told they cannot write these prescriptions or they will be fired.

            The same thing has happened to pharmacists. They are also licensed by their state and are afraid they will lose their licenses because their boards have made it clear they don’t want them filling these prescriptions.

            I’m a retired physician and know of multiple people in AZ and in other states who have received prescriptions and not been able to fill them. I also know of doctors being told by their employers that they are not to write these prescriptions for Covid.

            This is without precedent. I practiced for 30+ years and never had a pharmacist even ask what a prescriptions was for, let alone refuse to fill it.

        • cowbell81 August 27, 2021 at 1:43 pm #

        • Not_GeorgeT August 27, 2021 at 7:38 pm #

          I would frame something like this:

          “What you’re saying is you are placing yourself between the physician and the patient?”

          or

          “What you’re saying is you are placing yourself between my physician and me?”

          It really does not need a complex response. A simple reasoned statement. Now the pharmacist must decide. This in itself should give the pharmacist pause, because it moves it from possibly obeying management orders to the risk of professional license issues and exceeding scope of practice.

    • MaryQueen August 27, 2021 at 3:16 pm #

      I did, too. Never heard of a glide path before.

      • Blackbird August 27, 2021 at 10:04 pm #

      • Not_GeorgeT August 28, 2021 at 12:52 am #

        If it piques your interest, look at glide path as it relates to areas such as lawns. As the aircraft approaches there is some downward push of air, particularly from large aircraft.

        “(3) Indeed, the aerodynamics of flight would have made the official trajectory–flying more than 500 mph barely above ground level–physically impossible, because of the accumulation of a massive pocket of compressed gas (air) beneath the fuselage; and if it had come it at an angle instead, it would have created a massive crater; but there is no crater and the official trajectory is impossible.
        (4) Flying low enough to impact with the ground floor would have meant that the enormous engines were plowing the ground and creating massive furrows; but there are no massive furrows. The smooth, unblemished surface of the Pentagon lawn thus stands as a “smoking gun” proving the official trajectory cannot be sustained.

        It’s not new, as it was put out almost 15 years ago.

          The light posts, too, the missing video, etc. etc. At least I believe it was a missile based on what I’ve read, but perhaps they wired it up like they did the towers.

          • Not_GeorgeT August 28, 2021 at 1:49 pm #

            I’d go with a missile. Precision flight path, direct hit on what I understand was newly renovated space housing a group from Naval Intelligence.

            Seems they were following the money prior to the event.

            The pilots group did a rather good job early on with their explanations and graphics which include a dvd set.

          • Not_GeorgeT August 28, 2021 at 1:54 pm #

            Wiring would be difficult to pull off, imo, considering a lot of people in the building would see and recognize the trappings being moved around.

            Figure the security would be a huge magnitude higher than towers in Manhattan.

    Anyone still using words like optimist or pessimist is revealing more about their state of development, as opposed to a conceit that they are making some kind of profound observation.

    For others with a clue, given the current state of repression, and with some semblance of awareness of what happens during certain historical periods, one is therefore forced to speak in the oblique terms.

    Perhaps it will be sufficient to leave readers with this little missive:

    THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
    by Rudyard Kipling

    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to them very late,
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    They were not easily moved,
    They were icy — willing to wait
    Till every count should be proved,
    Ere the Saxon began to hate.

    Their voices were even and low.
    Their eyes were level and straight.
    There was neither sign nor show
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was not preached to the crowd.
    It was not taught by the state.
    No man spoke it aloud
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was not suddenly bred.

    • mitchellc August 27, 2021 at 1:32 pm #

      It was not suddenly bred.

    BOMBSHELL UK Data Destroys Entire Premise for Vaccine Push

    The media can read just as well as me (maybe), but somehow it is left to me to report this.

    By Chris Waldburger
    ChrisWaldburger.com
    August 27, 2021

    “This is an absolute game-changer.

    The UK government just reported the following data, tucked away in their report on variants of concern:

    Less than a third of delta variant deaths are in the unvaccinated.

    Let me say that another way – two-thirds of Delta deaths in the UK are in the jabbed.

    To be specific:

    From the 1st of February to the 2nd of August, the UK recorded 742 Delta deaths (yes, the dreaded Delta has not taken that much life).

    Out of the 742 deaths, 402 were fully vaccinated. 79 had received one shot. Only 253 were unvaccinated.

    The report is here:

    https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1009243/Technical_Briefing_20.pdf

    Again, 402 deaths out of 47 008 cases in vaccinated; 253 deaths out of 151 054 cases in unvaccinated. If you get covid having been vaccinated, according to this data, you are much more likely to die than if you were not vaccinated!

    Obviously some allowance must be made for more elderly people being vaccinated, but not enough to change the bottom line: this vaccine is not nearly as effective as advertised.

    And with all its unknowns, and a much higher adverse reporting number than all other vaccines combined, a complete recalibration of global policy is the only moral option.

    Countries around the world, as months pass since vaccinations, are experiencing a surge in vaccinated deaths and hospitalizations. 60% of hospitalizations in Israel are fully vaccinated patients. (Hence the mad rush for untested boosters.)

    The powers that be will not admit there is something terribly wrong. They will not acknowledge the clear science that people with natural immunity, and the young and healthy, do not need to take the risks of these injections. Read this very important piece on natural immunity. Reliable studies showing the superiority of natural immunity are just ignored by our overlords.

    Instead they will jab and jab and jab again. The vaccine passports will be renewable every six months. Countries are ordering up to 8 shots per citizen. The masks will not go away. Israel, the pre-eminent vaxxed nation, is in lockdown.”

    • Beryl of Oyl August 27, 2021 at 1:58 pm #

      The whole purpose of the “vaccine” (other than instituting the passport) was to reduce hospitalizations and deaths.

      There is no evidence to show that these vaccines even do that.

      • Islander August 27, 2021 at 5:24 pm #

        The article on the FDA that I linked up-thread discusses a number of earlier examples where the FDA set the “efficacy” bar ridiculously low.

        In this case much has been made—by pro-vaxxers, as a defense— that the jabs do what the manufacturers promised they would do: the FDA (and CDC) only demanded something that would reduce symptoms and prevent hospitalization.

        They did not demand that the shots perform like a traditional vaccine: kill the virus, prevent infection, and prevent transmission.

        This weak performance is actually used as a debating point! Obviously the FDA was playing hanky-panky with the drug cos, since both parties knew that there has never been an effective vaccine for any coronavirus, because of the speed of mutation.

        Comparisons with smallpox vaccine and use of mandate for the smallpox vaccines as a precedent for a covid jab mandate are willfully misleading.

        Of course the FDA’s punch-pulling instructions to the drug guys was an immediate red flag to anyone who knew anything about real vaccines.

        • MaryQueen August 28, 2021 at 1:07 pm #

          I wish people would understand what a disaster the FDA is. They approve all sorts of things that don’t work and are harmful.

    • Slugoon August 27, 2021 at 2:31 pm #

      Mary, thanks very much for posting that. There has been a further Technical Brief published (No.21), which can be found here:

      https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/investigation-of-novel-sars-cov-2-variant-variant-of-concern-20201201

      Since 1 February they have recorded 1,189 deaths with Delta (Table 5, P.22-23) of which 390 were unvaccinated and 783 were either partially or fully vaccinated. Looking at hospitalisations and cases it’s not far off 50/50 vaccinated/unvaccinated.

      The vaccines are doing diddly squat. Nothing.

      To give it further context there have been 261,044 deaths from all causes in that same period (since 1 February) in England & Wales (Source: ONS weekly death data) so by the government’s own numbers Delta is implicated in less than 0.5% of deaths and 0.0018% of the population.

      And they’re still talking about this like it’s the Black Death. And people are still acting like it although thankfully more and more are seeing through it.

      There is more chance that a person under 50 will die of accidental poisoning, cancer, liver disease, heart disease or a car accident, even in the face of this ‘Delta’ variant that has in all likelihood been spawned by the selection pressure mass vaccination.

        Thanks, Slugoon. Just back from a week near to Portpatrick (Dumfries and Galloway). Much nicer coast and countryside than Thurso. 🙂

        Combo of countryside and beta blockers has done some good, I think.

        I saw on the last thread that your wife is pestering you to get the jab. I thought she’d gone off it, since she wasn’t going to get the booster?

        I’m almost certain my husband will get the booster – not getting it would mean accepting what I’ve been saying and he can’t.

        I don’t want a third passive shower of spike proteins, if I’m still here …

        Got a creepy message on my mobile while we were away purporting to be from the NHS, telling me I could apply for a vax passport. Was tempted to reply, saying ‘why do I need one – am I about to lose my citizenship rights?’ Maybe best to lie low.

        Also tempted to follow up email to local MP. Impossible to know which of them are in on it. He was very pro-vaxx when I last wrote although he said passes weren’t Labour policy.

        I suspect it’s a waste of time.

        A few weeks ago I read something from Boris about passes that allowed for self-exemption and that self-exemption should not be questioned by those checking. Makes no sense except as an attempt to give false reassurance in advance of changing the rules once you’re signed up. In my view.

          Hi Green Alba

          I’ve been following Jim for many years now, and been following the comments for quite some time. If I recall correctly, you were sceptical of the vaccine decriers initially, but now I see you seem to have come around to their way of thinking.

          It seems the point of the anti-vaccine argument is the generation of spike proteins which is actually caused by the mRNA vaccine, and that this is injurious to health – is that a correct summary of the position?

          • GreenAlba August 29, 2021 at 7:08 am #

            Hi CS

            My position has indeed morphed but I was never gleefully pro-vaccine and never wanted anyone to take it who didn’t want it or seem to be at risk from Covid.

            Back in December or thereabouts, when the vaxxes were getting emergency approval, my husband said he wouldn’t go near them and he thought lots of other docs wouldn’t either. That seemed reasonable to me. But now he doesn’t even remember saying that. By January he was worried about his own risk from COVID, seeing patients (not specifically known Covid ones, but he’s 67 and has a couple of risk factors). I asked at the time if his colleagues and fellow bloggers on docs’ websites also felt reasonably confident about the vaxxes and he reckoned they mostly did at that point. I don’t know what changed their minds but I obviously regret having confidence in their judgement.

            But at that stage even Dr Peter McCullough was on board. And Dr Malone took the Moderna jab, despite earlier concerns.

            By Feb, when my turn came up, I took the view that I faced a risk either way, as I was convinced my husband would eventually bring Covid home. If not for that and his seeming confidence in the jab (he got Pfizer in Jan) I’d probably have felt more confident just sitting it out and avoiding indoor crowds.

            But we are where we are, and yes, the allegedly toxic spike proteins are my main concern, plus any other nefarious and secret ingredients that may also be included. (I am also strongly anti-vaxx passports and always have been, but that’s a separate issue).

            I always agreed that the lack of long-term follow-up presented a risk. But now I wouldn’t even have confidence that the trial participants necessarily even got the same product as the public. I’ve had flu jabs since age 65, with no ill effects or flu symptoms, but I wouldn’t even risk that now. They’re arranging for double jabs here this autumn – Covid booster in one arm and flu in the other.

            I’m done with jabs, unless they sneak them while I’m unconscious, but evidence suggests I’m probably done for anyway. 🙁

            Thanks for that Green Alba

            If I recall correctly, you found yourself suffering constant nausea & anxiety? You seem to be attributing these symptoms to the vaccine. Can I assume you’ve seen your own GP (not your husband)? Have you had no joy from that quarter in explaining things?

          • Cruizin Suzin August 29, 2021 at 7:09 pm #

            The reason I ask is entirely selfish. I’m in my mid-sixties and otherwise healthy but I live in New Zealand which is having its first incursion of Delta, having eliminated the first wave successfully in early 2020.

            Now we’re in a second nationwide lockdown and the vaccination roll-out is steaming ahead with great gusto, with the rate now reaching close to 50% (1st shot). (Our 27 y/o daughter-in-law had her first dose last Thursday and subsequently spend the next three days in bed.)

            I find myself hesitant, at least in no hurry to line up for a shot, but I can’t find any authoritative information about the (alleged) spike protein production and its (alleged) effects.

            This is the most useful local information I can find:

            https://www.epa.govt.nz/community-involvement/science-corner/sars-cov-2-vaccines-and-the-hsno-act/

            and the only reference to the spike protein states:

            All the biotechnology that went into making BNT162b2 puts it at an intersection that has EPA at the corner, because one of our jobs is to regulate all genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Aotearoa. This is part of our job in regulating new organisms under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act. As I explained above, the Pfizer vaccine has mRNA that was created outside of cells, and this is one of criteria for saying whether something is a GMO. But it’s not the only criterion. That “something” also has to be an organism.

            This “organism” criterion is why the EPA doesn’t generally regulate RNA, because it is a substance, and not an organism. But with the Pfizer vaccine, there’s clearly a lot more going on than just RNA, so a reasonable person at the border responsible for giving the regulatory tick to the vaccine might have some doubt about whether or not they were looking at a GMO. The remedy for this uncertainty is to ask the EPA. This is because the HSNO Act also allows us to determine whether or not an organism is a new organism – or if something is even an organism at all, if that is where the question lies.

            To ensure the vaccine would not be held up at our border as a potential new organism, Pfizer agreed that going through the statutory procedure to determine if BNT162b2 is a new organism was an appropriate thing to do.

            In the EPA’s determination process (which has a lot of moving parts, but I’m cutting a long story short), a Decision-Making Committee (DMC) thoroughly considered whether BNT162b2 could be seen as an organism at all. One criterion in the HSNO Act for being an organism is being capable of replicating itself. The DMC decided that the only thing that BNT162b2 was capable of producing was the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, and not more copies of itself. On this basis, the DMC determined that BNT162b2 did not meet any of the criteria for it to be called an organism.

            And this is what I meant by “a lot, and nothing at all”. A lot was done to determine that BNT162b2 is not regulated under the HSNO Act, and no EPA approval is required for its release into the environment – in this case, “release” means jabs in peoples’ arms.

            In conjunction with the approval for its use as a medicine, and the relevant permissions under the Biosecurity Act given by the Ministry for Primary Industries, the determination cleared the path for the importation of the vaccine into Aotearoa, which happened the following week.

            And thus began the end of our long isolation from the world.

            No-one authoritative (locally at least) seems to have a view on the spike protein and whether indeed its production ramps up and overwhelms the body.

            In the News today – a woman has died following a case of myocarditis that is likely to have been vaccine-induced. This is considered the FIRST case of a death.

            Other information on the NZ AEFI (equivalent to VAERS) database shows 385 ‘injuries considered serious’ after 2.188 million does delivered.

            CS – UK doctors are not allowed to treat friends or family. In any case my husband does not agree with me. My daughters also wish I would ‘stop reading stuff that’s making me ill’.

            I have seen one of the senior GPs at my own medical centre – and also had a brief, unplanned conversation with the most senior partner. They have been helpful in trying to alleviate my psychosomatic symptoms. Re the source of my anxieties, I presume they just think I’m bonkers. They are totally with the official narrative.

            You are most fortunate in being able to make your decision at a time when information is available which wasn’t available when I made mine. If I were making the same decision now, I wouldn’t touch the jabs with a barge pole.

        • Slugoon August 31, 2021 at 3:55 am #

          Hi Alba, so glad to see you back and feeling a bit better. If it helps, I’m halfway to having an affair and planning to see a mental health counsellor myself so you’re not all alone!

          Yes, don’t go to Thurso, I imagine that wouldn’t do anyone’s condition much good!

          Yes, wifey says she’s not having boosters but wants me to get the first two, an ambiguous position but I just say no. We don’t really talk about it. I’m curious that you are now worried about the spike proteins and shedding. Being pro choice and anti passport is perfectly rational even though such views are heretical according to the establishment and most people it would seem.

          These vaccines are a lot of things, mostly bad, but I honestly don’t think you’re going to suffer from it or secondarily from your hubbie. I didn’t like to see you so tortured these past weeks. I use an anonymous messaging app called Kik, and at the risk of Jim telling me off, if you want somebody to type to away from these forums who understands some of the issues we chat about here then I will extend my username. It’s all totally anonymous so just let me know.

          • GreenAlba September 1, 2021 at 7:30 am #

            Hi Slugoon

            Sorry you are in need of counselling – you always sound so resilient. I do hope it helps, though. I did think briefly about going to a hypnotherapist to help with the anxiety/nausea, but what put me off was that I might freak them out too if they ended up believing the whole WEF story, as I now do, plus thinking if they didn’t believe it they couldn’t really help me.

            Anyway, now please forgive me for sounding like ‘yer mum’, as befits my age … I’m sad that you’re considering an affair. It will likely end in tears, and some of those tears may well be your little boy’s. And in any case, I don’t think most people, despite their faults, deserve the humiliation of being cheated on. On top of which, given you’re already in need of counselling, do you really want the additional pressure of not liking being dishonourable/dishonest? You can’t have been married that long – the problem must be more than just the jabs, but surely it’s worth trying to fix, even for the sake of your little boy?

            None of my business, it need hardly be said, but I’d feel wrong not saying it, since you have been so kind in my direction.

            Thanks for the offer of correspondence, which I will bear in mind (if you are not now regretting it!!). It is indeed very difficult not having a single person close to me to confide in, apart from my daughters, who don’t buy what I’m saying and just want me to think about other things. They are quite distressed about my condition, and one has her own serious problems, which the other also has to shoulder. Nightmare time!

            Like you, I don’t really discuss the jabs etc. with my husband. I do send him links and the odd emailed mini-treatise, but judiciously. He doesn’t reply, but he still treats me kindly and not with exasperation, so I don’t exactly know what goes on in his head. I suspect part of him suspects I may be right, but he would find it difficult to function if he properly accepted it.

            On the matter of shedding and being doomed by long-term vascular damage from the spike proteins, I see no reason to doubt the medical evidence that has been presented. Sadly. So I don’t think I’ve got that long, even assuming I don’t succumb to covid – ADE version – in a month or two. Probably not long enough to do anything meaningful to help my daughters’ hopeless outlook.

            Sorry, none of that was very cheery. 🙁

            I hope you see it, nevertheless. Didn’t want to attract attention by responding to your note on the current thread.

          • Slugoon September 1, 2021 at 11:15 am #

            Hi Alba, thanks for taking the time to reply in such detail and with such thought. I’m finding lately that it’s good to talk! Why not go see the therapist anyway, whichever variety you think is best? They must have heard it all before and then some. Let them judge you, what does it matter, but you may find it extremely cathartic.

            I must admit, I haven’t looked into spike proteins and ADE, but the fact is that right now people aren’t dropping like flies and if they do then half the planet is going to disappear and life will be as good as over for most of us anyway. I can’t help but feel your worst enemy is your nausea and anxiety rather than anything you’ve injected. It looks like you’ve already taken big strides in the right direction, based on your recent return to form, and I hope you’ll be ‘over the line’ soon. For as long as I’ve read this forum (ten years or so?) you’ve been the voice of reason to which I think we should all calibrate ourselves.

            About the affair, yes, I know. It’s an emotional one so far. You’re right, there is more to it than the jabs, in fact, that has nothing to do with it but I won’t go into that here. Being rational, being resilient, being very together all the time, I think that is the problem. I grew up not expressing any feelings. I was never encouraged to. I never had anybody I could express them to. I met someone and poured my heart out for the first time in my life. The last 18 months has hit me really hard and it finally manifested itself recently in a series of brief but frequent episodes of overwhelming emotion. Maybe this is just my midlife crisis!

            I can get support through work. There was a major incident in our industry a few years back. A young German pilot flew his Airbus, complete with passengers, into the Alps, you may remember it. Since then mental health has been a major industry focus point so the support is there. Going to work is actually where I’m happiest though – life is good at 38,000 feet!

            Anyway, keep going, and my offer still stands.

          • GreenAlba September 2, 2021 at 4:46 pm #

            Haha – I’m the voice of reason who got everything wrong until it was too late!

            Yes I remember the pilot who took the passengers with him – horrendous. Wasn’t that one theory for the disappeared Malaysian plane too?

            I recall reading at the time that copycat suicides are a thing, with local clusters of car ‘accidents’ for example. We already know it’s a thing with teenagers because of social media.

            I digress – I’m glad you’ve got help at hand anyway and hope everything works out.

    I just read the official paperwork for the so called fda ‘approval’ of the ‘vax.’ The current pfizer mRNA shot is still NOT approved. What are approved are two agents in the pipeline, comirnaty and tozinameriran, neither of which have even completed safety trials. So, what’s approved are safety trials for two drugs that are several years away.

    The real concern here is that the fda has pulled a bait and switch trickery on the bubas americanus. Tons of idiots now think that the pfizer mRNA shot is now fda approved when IT IS NOT !!!!! But, full speed ahead with mandates for the pussified and ignorant. May those who continue to receive the mRNA NON APPROVED non vax rest in peace.

    Here’s more detail. (no mention of the above in the msm, except to lie and claim approval for the current pfizer shot)

    “…what is to be done about him?”

    Events in America today have pushed way passed even the most outrageous Monty Python sketch. This unfolding and ongoing National embarrassment on the World stage is both horribly pathetic and morbidly fascinating. There could not be a better ‘leader’ during this period than the current Pretender-In-Chief. Or his waiting-in-the-wings Chief Giggler and diversity appointee.

    “We know that there have been more serious adverse reactions and deaths from these mRNA shots than anything previously called a ‘vaccine.’”

    Is death officially considered just a Side Effect? Some side effect if it is. If it’s a side effect than we’d hate to see what the main event is.

    The national vaccination efforts so far have been publicly touted as a great success. But why are so many patients maimed, dying, or dead? Just all part of the ‘success’?

    What’s that? More Giggling again?

      Well, Arizonagate is the new Russiagate that we had to put up with during the entire four good years under Trump. How do you like them apples? Just because we cannot get to the bottom of the murky election does not mean it was rigged or that there was some kind of collusion involved. Most likely the fact that a reasonable conclusion cannot be reached is direct evidence that there was fraud!

      The fact that you even raise the question of whether JHK is vaxxed shows that this is all an effort in futility. It should not bother anyone else whether you, I, or Joe Blow on the street is vaxxed. That is their own prerogative and there should not be some golden standard that everyone is applied against.

      This certainly is not the case of “the common good” when multitudes of people are directly getting sick and even dying as a direct and proximate cause of taking the vaxx. As a matter of fact, it is in the “common good” that we try to educate people fully on the lies being hidden, and distorted messages being peddled, and the poison being sold all in the name of Big Pharma.

    “We know that there have been more serious adverse reactions and deaths from these mRNA shots than anything previously called a “vaccine.”

    The fact is: more serious adverse reactions than all other vaccines combined.

    Recall the swine flu. Anticipated to be the pale rider. Vaccination stopped after 26 dead. Why do we not now stop vaccination after 26000+ dead (US+EU)?

    The vax campain does not seem to make much sense in light of the following information: the vax does not prevent you from being infected and developing a high viral load (Vietnamese study: vaccinated healthcare workers evince extremely high viral loads, infect each other and patients). The vax does not prevent you from spreading the disease, all it does is control the symptoms leading to more benign presentation (under current variants).

    A reasonable theory (endorsed by researchers including Nobel prize winners but denied by like others) holds that infected vaxxed are variant breeder factories. The theory is supported by the emergence of countless variants in spite of corona viruses random mutation suppressing abilities.

    How then is the fact that one is vaxxed a reasonable basis to be classified as a lower epidemiological risk? It clearly is not. But that is how all western governments classify the vaxxed.

    Our minister of health funnily stated that “we will vax ourselves to freedom”. This is all nonsensical but I have a conspiracy theory for you which explains it all which I will take the liberty to present to you.

    Let’s start with abstract considerations on the nature of conspiracies.

    • Islander August 27, 2021 at 5:59 pm #

      “The theory is supported by the emergence of countless variants in spite of corona viruses random mutation suppressing abilities.”

      What does this mean?

      • michael August 27, 2021 at 9:49 pm #

        Corona viruses do not mutate as quickly as say a flu virus:
        https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-02544-6

        Here is an interesting argument: mutations should occur in all proteins with no preferred location. If it turns out that the spike protein is a preferred location then that points to evolution guided by selection pressure (i.e. such mutations will allow the virus to escape the vaccine induced immunity and such mutation will spread more easily and proliferate).

        This suggestion has already be made by the guy who first warned about vaccinations in the midst of a pandemic.

        Sure enough there are lots of mutations in the spike protein but I do not know of an investigation whether the mutations are truly concentrated there. But such an investigation should be done since it would shed some light on the theory that the vaccinations produce the variants.

        That there seems to be no interest in this at all and some reject the theory out of hand discredits the medical research community.

      • michael August 27, 2021 at 9:58 pm #

        Or put it this way: the vaccines will not by themselves affect the mutation rate.

        But when the virus replicates in a partially or fully vaccinated population mutations that lead to evasion of the vaccine induced immunity confer an advantage and such a variant will become dominant quickly.

        That’s why the coming and going of new dominant variants against which the vaccines are less effective is an indication that the virus evolution reacts to the vaccination campaign.

        It is a reasonable assumption that variants that can evade certain immune system defenses will be more virulent also.

    Apologize no link with this, but Naomi Wolf reports (on Telegram):

    Study: People vaccinated for covid carry 251 times the normal viral load, threatening the unvaccinated

    “The University of Oxford‘s Clinical Research Group conducted a study recently which found that people who get “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) carry in their nostrils 251 times the viral load of the Chinese Virus compared to “unvaccinated” people.

    The preprint paper, which is set to be published in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet, is groundbreaking in that it confirms the threat of vaccinated people who are “shedding” the virus and who even knows what else on others when they venture out in public.

    Even if the jabbed are not showing symptoms, researchers found that they carry with them extremely high viral loads that transform them into what Dr. Peter A. McCullough, M.D., Ph.D., calls “presymptomatic superspreaders.”

    “This phenomenon may be the source of the shocking post-vaccination surges in heavily vaccinated populations globally,” McCullough wrote in a piece for The Defender, a newsletter of Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

    “The paper’s authors, Chau et al, demonstrated widespread vaccine failure and transmission under tightly controlled circumstances in a hospital lockdown in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam.”

    Confirmed: Covid vaccines are spreading the “delta” variant

    Scientists took a closer look at healthcare workers at the hospital who were injected for the Fauci Flu and had to remain confined there for two weeks. Several months later, all of these individuals were determined to have acquired, carried and transmitted the dreaded “delta” variant to others, including their vaccinated colleagues.

    In other words, the so-called vaccines did absolutely nothing to prevent either infection or spread, even to other vaccinated people who, according to Fauci, should have been protected.

    These same vaccinated healthcare workers also presumably transmitted the delta variant to their patients, contributing to the latest surge in new “cases” of the disease that governments around the world and their mainstream media lapdogs are blaming on the unvaccinated.

    “This is consistent with the observations in the U.S. from Farinholt and colleagues, and congruent with comments by the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conceding COVID-19 vaccines have failed to stop transmission of SARS-CoV-2,” McCullough says.

    “On Feb. 11, the World Health Organization indicated the AZD1222 vaccine efficacy of 63.09% against the development of symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection. The conclusions of the Chau paper support the warnings by leading medical experts that the partial, non-sterilizing immunity from the three notoriously ‘leaky’ COVID-19 vaccines allow carriage of 251 times the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 as compared to samples from the pre-vaccination era in 2020.”

    Were it not for the presence of vaccinated people throughout society, we probably would not even have delta or any other variant at all. The “pandemic” would have long been over by now and everything would have been back to normal, if only “Operation Warp Speed” had never been brought into existence.

    “Thus, we have a key piece to the puzzle explaining why the Delta outbreak is so formidable – fully vaccinated are participating as COVID-19 patients and acting as powerful Typhoid Mary-style super-spreaders of the infection,” McCullough says.

    “Vaccinated individuals are blasting out concentrated viral explosions into their communities and fueling new COVID surges. Vaccinated healthcare workers are almost certainly infecting their coworkers and patients, causing horrendous collateral damage.”

    Though the Pandora’s box has already been opened, we might be able to get a handle on this thing if the vaccination campaign is immediately stopped, including all “mandates” that aim to inject everyone with these deadly poisons.”

    Pretty much what I’ve been saying. It doesn’t take a genius to see what’s going on.

    Many here view a conspiracy as taking place by explicit planning and mutual agreement of nefarious parties needing secrecy and invisible operations. This is in fact one form of conspiracy.

    But there is another form, let’s call it the self organizing conspiracy, in which an elite performs operations for their own benefit and to the detriment of the majority.

    For this to flourish it is necessary to only admit individuals to the elite which have an intuitive understanding of the decision space and who are not in need of explicit instruction or written documents.

    From then on the conspiracy can ride the flow of events, coasting as it were effortlessly and under the influence of no opposing forces on a geodesic of fate. As the opportunity arises, decisions are made that go in the right direction and nobody needs to be told why we do this.

    The compliant media provide the necessary cover stories and talking points which arise in informal discussions and cannot be traced back to any sources. The intelligence and discipline of the participants ensures that they are adopted and rigorously maintained in circulation.

    Now let’s get to a concrete, hypothetical conspiracy.

    • MaryQueen August 27, 2021 at 4:15 pm #

      Well, I’m not so sure how it can be branded a conspiracy if it’s being done right out in the open, as the Great Reset/Covid19 bullshit is.

      • michael August 27, 2021 at 5:44 pm #

        We need a definition of Conspiracy. I propose the following one:

        A Conspiracy is an operation undertaken by a small group in opposition to the interests of a large group and contrary to common ethics under the cover of secrecy OR disinformation.

        Nowadays disinformation (talking points, mendacious language, propaganda, half truths, pretended fact checks, censure, cancellations,…) is the tool of choice.

        Secrecy can always be broken by a single whistleblower but breaking through a carefully orchestrated disinformation campaign is impossible for most.

        • Night Owl August 27, 2021 at 6:18 pm #

          Waste of time. The people on this site who continually rant about conspiracy theories are themselves incapable of critical thought.

          A conspiracy is nothing more than a group of individuals planning an action.

          Those that attack theories are themselves incapable of the thought required to theorize. They are usually subservient to whoever excercises power, and they repeat the mantras they are told to repeat, so long as they are socially acceptable — which they are because they come from power.

          It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to control people — particularly Americans. The binary system, social fear/pressure, and laziness are a lethal combination.

          • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 7:41 pm #

            Maybe all the corn syrup in the American diet has affected memory. When a “debunked conspiracy theory” is finally officially admitted as true; everybody pretends they never ridiculed the idea. Oh sure, we knew that all along. No big deal.

            We saw it with the Wuhan weapon’s lab origin theory. We are seeing it with alien origin UFO revelations. I predict we will see it soon with admissions about chem trails and how they save us from global overheating.

          • MaryQueen August 27, 2021 at 8:19 pm #

            Agree. If you’ve allowed yourself to be immersed into the covid death cult and are stupid enough to post CNN as an example of factual reporting, your brain is fucking gone.

            I’ve read that the clotshot is affecting peoples’ brains as well. Probably mini-clots that will never go away.

            And then there is the prions thing. Seems to be evident in some of the jabbed people I’ve spoken to, who now have the intelligence of a gnat. Sad to watch it.

    First the facts:

    Ecosystems are in severe decline, threatening incalculable risk to the welfare of humanity. The problem is the human footprint, it is too large.

    Social security systems including retirement systems are under severe demographic strain.

    A plutocratic globalist elite has established itself in the west, and attempted to put itself above the law to the greatest extent possible (immunity from prosecution, etc).

    Now the conspiracy: the above mentioned problems can be solved if the population – and especially the population of the old – is reduced.
    The basic goal shaping the decision space is now defined.

    The emergence of the corona virus is the event starting the trajectory.
    Main decision:
    vaccinate everyone with vaccines that ameliorate symptoms but lead to the breeding of variants and high viral loads in low symptom walking virus factories. Declare the vaxxed as being low epidemiological risks and provide them with full freedom to go about spreading the disease.

    Bank on the emergence of virulent variants which, at first, will decimate the unvaxxed and anti-vaxxers. This is of great benefit to the elite as the unvaxxed are composed of undesirables (critical thinkers, propaganda resistant, libertarian etc).

    Expect ADE to develop to also decimate the vaxxed. Put the vaxxed on a annual or semiannual booster schedule to degrade their innate immune system so they can fall prey to opportunistic infections.

    Effect: an inconspicous reduction in numbers of undesirables (including the old) and life expectancy of everyone else. Mission accomplished.

    • cowbell81 August 27, 2021 at 3:55 pm #

        • michael August 27, 2021 at 5:19 pm #

          Think about it like that: this is not like planting a bomb for immediate effect. It’s like nudging an evolution a bit in a direction you like. Do this again and again and slowly the environment will take the shape you desire.

          E.g.: shall we allow Glyphosate? But doesn’t it cause cancer, interfere with you gut microbiome? Well who knows, it’s unclear, look at these studies to the contrary,….

          Real reason: the elite do not eat Glyphosate contaminated foods and for the rest cancer and an unhealthy gut microbiome reducing their life span generally goes in the right direction.

          Or Covd vaccines: virulent variants, ADE: maybe they do not develop but we provide for the possibility, if it doesn’t happen – nothing lost, if it happens – all the better.

          • Disaffected August 27, 2021 at 5:29 pm #

          but this is more hypothesis than explanation

          As will all proposed explanations be in the absence of concrete facts, which are always being suppressed in any effective conspiracy or psyop.

          Too many variables with this virus and too much unpredictability to plan for a specific, self satisfying outcome.

          You obviously didn’t understand what he wrote in the first place. He’s banking on the fact that they’re counting on these variables to play out in unpredictable ways specifically, while still comporting to an overall destructive model arc generally. In short, they’re sewing the seeds of destruction and letting nature take its course after that, in much the same way that we see false flag events unfold every day now. That very unpredictability makes events seem organic and deniable on the part of the perpetrators, who if ever caught, will use that as their primary defense.

          People who impugn conspiracy theories almost always attribute a degree of certainty to them that never actually exists, nor does it need to. Any well planned CT worth its salt controls only what it must, and capitalizes on randomness and unpredictability to not only take care of the rest, but to actually enhance the operation significantly as well.

          • tucsonspur August 27, 2021 at 5:58 pm #

            Is the I Ching thing “chaos = opportunity”? Something like that?

            And I think that is part of Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine?

            While things generally are collapsing, there is a crew that is ready to pick up the pieces.

            Question: Do these international Reset warlords really think they can control things on an international scale?

            Back to Michael’s scenario:
            If experts such as Yeadon et al. were fully able to predict the outcome of creating a “leaky” virus, surely the pros at Big Pharma did, too. And so did Bill Mr. Vaccine Gates. This does lend a foundation of intentionality to the operation that would tend to support the Michael hypothesis—that the Big Players have thrown the dice and are waiting to see how the game proceeds, how the other players react.

            It does seem to me, though, that Pandora might be getting into the game in a number of ways.

          • Disaffected August 28, 2021 at 9:07 am #

            The randomness and unpredictability can also take down those who try to employ it.

            True that, as far as it goes. But it all depends on the level of sophistication and power of the perps in question. To a small group if dissidents who wield little power within the system in question, such unpredictability might well be a liability. On the other hand, to a group of entrenched very powerful globalist oligarchs who have little chance of ever being accused, never mind charged, and with several levels of pre-designated “fall guys” in place to take the heat, that same unpredictability becomes a major advantage.

            As to the necessity of international control. The better question is, how much control is even necessary once the basic theme – establishment of a “disease fear myth” and narrative – are established? Now that Covid – just like 9-11 before it – has been successfully inoculated into the mass psyche, the masses will essentially control themselves, and even worse, demand control over one another, as we’re seeing now.

            As I’ve said many times before, once you establish a myth, facts no longer matter at all! If the globalist elite are smart about anything, IT’S THAT. While the riff-raff argue about trivial facts and mere events, they’re looking at the game board with different eyes altogether, knowing how their moves effect the mythical narrative, and thus the psyches, of all the little players in the game.

      “Now the conspiracy: the above mentioned problems can be solved if the population – and especially the population of the old – is reduced.” — michael

      Yes, the elderly are to be eliminated, but immediate death on their depopulation graphs isn’t the reason — the old and frail will die soon anyway. But the old are the epitome of “useless eaters”. They’re grabbing all those pension $$, while now contributing nothing to the coffers. Somewhere, another almost-billionaire would have to wait another few years! Can’t have that.

      But the real target for depop is the children. The New Order is frantically trying to change everything normal about daily life so that those kids who somehow manage to survive this first onslaught won’t have any reference points of the “good ole days” to contrast and to use as a positive vision.

      Also, the jabs are making both women and men infertile. By the time youngsters hit puberty, they’ll already have been subjected to dozens of jabs.

      They’ve planned for many contingencies. And it’s a long game they’re playing. They’ve said it in BIG BOLD PRINT many times: “things aren’t going back to normal”.

      This is a fact? Given the rest of your post, I would think you would question this, given that those who have used lies to deliver the tyranny you speak of are the same folks making this claim.

      At this point, I would suggest the best course of action is to question all facts being delivered to you by captured institutions and corporate media.

      But that’s just me.

    Good article today and no shortage of material to write about. Jen P. said in the news conference last night that they’re sticking to the time line to be out by August 31st — next Tuesday. So the evacuations would have to stop on Sunday or Monday to get the troops out. It may be impossible to get any news after that as I don’t imagine reporters would stay there.

      Things go dark, that’s when the killers begin their work.

      Something’s up. At the local package store this afternoon refrigerated cases thinly stocked with beer, just some wierd, locally made hipster brew left, that’s all. Well, any port in a storm, and it’s 95°F out here. Actually it ain’t that bad. The owner said it has something to do with truckers, or the lack thereof. NOW THIS IS AN EMERGENCY, one that strikes close to home. Nobody wants to drive truck anymore, apparently.

        Having issues here with trash pickup. Truck(s) ‘in repair shop’.

        • BackRowHeckler August 27, 2021 at 5:02 pm #

          See what I mean TS, no beer in Ct, no trash pick up in Az, it’s all falling apart.

          • tucsonspur August 27, 2021 at 5:14 pm #

            Yes, no beer, bad!

          Hopefully, the beer supply situation will stabilize by the beginning of next week.

        Mary mentioned a trucker strike for 8/31. I Hope so. We so need resistance.

        If they went Paris-like with Real protests, they could clog every freeway in America.

        Interesting times.

    Psaki: Biden doesn’t want Kabul terrorists ‘to live on the Earth anymore’

    This is literally what she said during the press conference! So what does this mean, we are going to send them to Mars with Elon Musk’s next spaceship?

    What a bizarre comment. I think it is Biden that has his head so far in the clouds he is the one no longer on Earth. He is clearly delusional and untethered from reality.

    In February of 1988 than Senator Joe Biden had two life-threatening brain aneurysms during a week long Drinking and Cocaine Binge with party animal Ted Kennedy.

    It took 16 hours of emergency brain surgery to save his life.

    “I had two cranial aneurysms, and they literally had to take the top of my head off. I mean, they take a saw and they cut your head off. They had to go in to find the artery that that had burst and was leaking, the other that hadn’t, before it burst.”

    According to Biden himself the surgeon told him his chance of being completely normal was in the 35 to 50 percent range.

    • BackRowHeckler August 27, 2021 at 4:58 pm #

      At this point you gotta feel sorry for the guy. The way I look at it, what’s the point in hammering him anymore. I know, we learned how it’s done 2016-2020, and revenge is sweet. But still …

      • tucsonspur August 27, 2021 at 5:05 pm #

        There’s no way out. Harris if not Biden, then who knows what. Unless, “a play to remove the current president by unorthodox means, say, a rising up of parties seemingly outside of US government, including a select group of current and former US military officers?” JHK

        Can’t be any mercy towards this Obama clan.

        • Islander August 27, 2021 at 6:36 pm #

          I think they will keep him out in front, the way they are doing now.

          Even if the whole world knows it is a facade, it will be less disruptive than an open change, which wouid provoke some kind of constitutional crisis that could be made a pretext for who knows what.

          They will keep him going, poor guy.

          In fact, it might make sense for them to engineer a way for Harris to exit the scene first. dot .. dot … dot …

          Appoint a new VP, then take care of Biden.

          Ensure “transition” by new VP turned President to elected president in 2024.

        He’s a criminal furthering the genocidal agenda of the global crime gang. He should have the top of his skull sawn off again. Attach electrodes. Make him play Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots against a similarly modified Trump. The more money your side pumps in, the more punches your robot gets. You knocked my block off! Not revenge, simple justice.

      I heard that empty threat by Psaki too. We can’t even safely evacuate people so I doubt very much the terrorists who detonated the bomb are too worried.

      Biden is a pathetic figure, shuffling to the podium, struggling for answers no one has and it is pitiful. That said, I remember the Biden who was more than willing to play the game and reap the rewards. I don’t think he ever thought he’d have to pay this price with his old age.

    Right on cue, Jim.
    Keep ’em staring into the headlights.

    Personally, I could not be less concerned about the nature of the meaningless hood ornament stinking up the Oval Office desk chair.

    How about, “what is the true goal behind the massive global efforts to get everyone vaccinated?” Never mind, that could get you suicided.

    • cowbell81 August 27, 2021 at 5:26 pm #

      Last I read now they’re saying we can’t have herd immunity until we hit a 90% vaccination rate. Keep moving those goal posts!

      • hmuller August 27, 2021 at 7:26 pm #

        I just pictured a Gary Larson style cartoon. One cow tells another cow with a clipboard, “I resent being described as just one of the herd.”

    • Night Owl August 27, 2021 at 6:21 pm #

      Right on, Tok.

      Head in the sand. Biden is a sideshow. He is in charge of nothing, and America is on the same trajectory as the rest of the West.

      And who has put all these nations on that trajectory? Marching in lockstep?

      Hmmm.

    ‘His managers installed a “poison pill” named Kamala Harris as his vice-president, and even members of her own party get the vapors at mere fugitive thoughts of her trying to run the country, giggling from one crisis to another’.

    Yes, perfectly prescribed by group Obama. A nation in agony will writhe in pain and die a slow death, and the Afghans may not mind it much.

      Yeah, one of the nephews girlfriends got a new Honda Civic about 3 years ago. I didn’t see the car around anymore and I asked her “Where’s your Honda”. She said it broke down something with the engine. “What happened to the engine”.

      “It ran out of oil”.

      “You didn’t put any oil in?”

      “I didn’t know I needed to.”

      “Didn’t the red oil light come on?”

      “A light came on, but I covered it up with a piece of tape.”

      This is otherwise a pretty bright girl with a good job at an insurance company.

      So yes, you never know when it comes to women.

        Harvard University’s more than 40 chaplains have unanimously elected an atheist to be the new president of its chaplains’ organization.

        Greg Epstein, 44, a humanist who was raised in a Jewish household, will begin as president of the Harvard chaplains this week.

    James Howard: Once again your reading of the tea leaves grade is = very accurate to prescient.
    O.G. Quite obviously, you have absolutely no idea of what occurs during basic training. All five branches train to different standards, using different techniques to achieve service specific goals. Your vivid imagination as to “breaking down” the individual to program them to remove independent thinking/questioning is moronic at best. Not possible as the physical intensity/sleep deprivation needed to break a person down isn’t allowed, especially now with “time out” cards for all but Marines. I went thru Paris Island in the early 70’s. Punched out twice for screwing up, pushed hard physically, adequate amount of sleep and came out thinking exactly the same (arrogant, mean and logical). Full metal jacket comes very close to what I experienced and the outcome was same as the movie. The weak break and get gone (without shooting their DI), the rest are functional Marines.
    A VP chosen due to a sitting (Or in this case shitting himself) president being removed requires a majority vote “for” by both houses. The black Jesus is a no go. Deadlocked 50/50, there’s NO vp to vote tiebreaker. Interesting, no?
    Virus with a 99.6% survival rate still being called a “Pandemic” by brain dead/media shills. Vaccine can’t protect, stop spread, keep one from dying. For those who took it early, when it seemed rational, sorry.
    ONE military person makes a stupid statement, and WHAM!! We’re finished. Probably believe boot camp makes zombies out of all military members.
    Am finishing a 21 yr career as an RN as Sentara has now mandated the jab. 49 and a WU. (wake up for non military).
