I’ll tell you what’s really funny: the new Sam Harris “Making Sense” podcast with Dr. Eric Topol, veep of Scripps Research. These two just can’t make sense of why the folks outside their Southern California smuggery bubble have any reservations about getting vaxed-up against Covid-19. It’s like a mental illness to them — all these selfish, Trump-driven, flag-smooching ignoramuses beyond the pale of Wokery, who are putting at risk their science-loving betters in the PhD hives of the New Normal, while that King Kong of Covid variants (code-name Delta) rages through the hillsides and canyons beneath Mulholland Drive. The insolence! Can’t these morons just follow simple instructions (available 24/7 at CNN)?

Okay, here’s why, Sam and Eric: Because every institution in American life has squandered its credibility in the service of a political program that seeks to destroy whatever used to be worth caring about in Western Civ, including free thought, free speech, free inquiry, free movement, truth, beauty, and the right to resist official coercion. Half the country has no trust in the government’s public health apparatus, led by the — shall we say — slippery Dr. Anthony Fauci. Should they believe NPR? The New York Times? CBS-News? Should they follow every bob and judder of Rachel Maddow’s Adam’s apple? Should they swallow every globule of obvious horse-shit served up by Jen Psaki?

Hey Sam and Eric, have you followed what went on in the US Department of Justice and the FBI the past five years, these supposed redoubts of rectitude? The manufactured “Russian Collusion” hoax? The official lying to FISA courts? The malicious prosecutions? The transparently seditious activities of CIA agent Eric Ciaramella & Co.? The hiding of Hunter Biden’s evidence-stuffed laptop?  The enlistment of Facebook, Twitter, and Google in suppression of the news and censorship of opinion? Do you expect people to believe that the basement-haunting “Joe Biden” won an election with those slim victories in the Wokester-controlled, fraud-drenched city precincts of Philadelphia, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Detroit? Or that Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray wouldn’t lie about it?

Can you detect something a little off in those aforesaid federal law enforcement agencies allowing BLM and Antifa to destroy over a billion dollars in small business and a bunch of civic infrastructure at will, for months on end, while overcharging felonies on the three-hour US Capitol trespassers you label “insurrectionists”? Can you point out “the science” in the Drag Queen Reading Hour? Is it a sound idea to promote racism in the public schools? And to instruct US military recruits that their nation is, maybe, not worth defending?

And now you want to convince half the country subjected to this tyrannical mind-fuckery to get a poorly-tested mRNA vaccine that might provoke blood clots and organ damage? Against a disease apparently manufactured under the sponsorship of our own government? I have to tell you, Sam and Eric, that your expectations are a bit out-of-synch with the march of events. That half of the country not in thrall to your narratives won’t submit to your supposedly superior powers of reasoning and your empathic, nurturing concern for their well-being. They are quite convinced, based on a shit-ton of evidence and lived experience, that they are being played by a degenerate regime not at all run in their interests… that lies to them reflexively and incessantly.

What’s more, they want their country back — a land of free speech, fair play, and settled principle, like the right to a speedy trial. And here’s something else to consider, Sam and Eric: if the regime that you support goes a step further, as is looking more likely day by day, and if it moves to make these mRNA vaccines mandatory, it is going to pull the pin that detonates a national grenade. And when that happens, you and your Woke-Jacobin confederates will be on the run for a change, worrying about your own cancellation and whether, perhaps, it will get a fair hearing. You have the right to hope so.

We are slip-sliding toward that terrible moment. And, you better remember that this strife over Covid-19 is but one part of a much bigger picture of evolving national woe. Looming beyond this mere skirmish over public health is an economy that has sunk into uniform racketeering, the disgraceful mismanagement of government spending, the specter of a dying currency, the developing quandaries for our food supply, the probability of a market blowup that will bring down the pension system and destroy the notional wealth of millions, and the growing antagonism of foreign polities who resent our badly-discharged power around the world and sense our growing weakness. Maybe you should get woke to that?

          After much study, my wife and I decided to get the jab even with the risks. We had to balance out various risks and benefits (main benefit us being allowed to travel, a biggie for us). Now with the rumored Mask Mandates coming Tuesday afternoon, I’m beginning to feel like we were suckered into this.

          Ivermectin, HCQ, Vits D3, C. Quercetin, Zinc. Exercise. Worrying less. Oh yeah. And rusting .gov FAR less.

          Gold. Bitcoin. TOR. A VPN. Pb and Pb projection devices. Storage of food. Has it all come down to this? Alas, yes.

            Relax, you’ll be fine. The paranoia among some people here is hilarious…covid deaths are a hoax yet deaths from the vaccines are 100% real and greater than the former.

            covid deaths are a hoax yet deaths from the vaccines are 100% real

            RL, is that you?

            Anyway, most people aren’t saying covid deaths themselves are a hoax, and you know that…people have died of cold and flu every year since the dawn of time…the hoax is that they were all attributed to a new strain last year. What hasn’t happened since the dawn of time is 10,000+ people in normal health dying within days or weeks from vaccines they didn’t need to take.

            I presume you can see the difference.

          Bill Gates bought up a lot of farmland. Is he planning to feed the Chinee, and let us starve? I wouldn’t be surprised.

            But what happens when the rule of law breaks down and the desperate masses lose their fear of death and begin acting out in ways that even the best trained security forces can’t control? Will we see a repeat of Russia circa 1917?

          • Horseradish Farmer July 26, 2021 at 3:20 pm #

            Gates is a large farmland owner, to be sure. However, foreign citizens own about 100x his chunk (~30m acres).

            The nice thing is, just as when we sold the Empire State Building to the Japanese they didn’t move it to Tokyo, no one is moving US farmland overseas. And it’s only the rule of law (a quaint so-to-speak, I know) that allows them to remove any product from it.

            When pirates close the ports or privateers the freeways, the Chinese will no longer be exporting millions of hog carcasses, their “ownership” of Smithfield be damned. What we need to start developing is a whole buttload of independent butchers, in every little town in America. We’re going to need them.

          • SouthernYankee July 27, 2021 at 7:47 am #

            In his mind, who else is going to manufacture the parts for his “products” so he can continue to amass enormous wealth? Not deplorable Americans. Forget that. He would rather have us starve.

          • zizzybalooba July 27, 2021 at 1:09 pm #

            I heard Bill Gates is a Chinese agent and the vaccine inserts a microchip so we will buy more Microsoft products and Chinese junk.

        • bluedog July 26, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

          Buy it from Russia for they have a bumper crop, and we aren’t the only country in the world you know, as we found out with the foolish tariffs which saw China signing long term contracts for their food products with other countries causing farm related bankruptcies to surge for the moon in this country.

          Also read where 20% + of those surveyed wants a military tribunal to try the heads of intelligence, banking, corporate, congress and a host of others for treason and execute those found guilty. Yes indeed interesting times are a coming, are you ready?

          • tlauria July 26, 2021 at 3:39 pm #

            a WOKE military tribunal? What the fuck good would that do?

          • Flash in the Pan July 26, 2021 at 5:03 pm #

            The US will be bidding at Russia’s doorstep against China and other nations to make up the grain short fall we have from are fried crop land.

            Will Russia want inflated near worthless dollars for their precious grain? How about we go to Russia, hat in hand, and offer gold?

            Oh, that right, Ft Knox was looted years ago, sorry no gold to buy food with.

            I feel triggered. Boo Hoo.

            Obomber sold the last of our grain reserves and never replaced them.

            The Strategic Grain Reserves were there for a reason. Hard times, you have a buffer against starvation.

            Now, not so much.

          • Exscotticus July 29, 2021 at 9:05 pm #

            Foolish tariffs? Then why has Biden kept them? Oops!

            Tariffs are foolish when trade is balanced, and both nations stand to lose equally from reciprocated tariffs.

            But what happens when there’s a huge trade imbalance? Well that changes the calculus entirely. No matter how much China reciprocates, it doesn’t matter; our tariffs hurt them far more than their tariffs hurt us.

            Farm bankruptcies? They’ve been going on for decades and have nothing to do with tariffs. Family farms cannot compete with Big Agro. The children don’t want to farm, since Dems teach them that they’re ignorant and worthless without sa college degree in hate-whitey.

      This is the best thing JHK has ever written. It’s like the new Declaration of Independence telling the dark agents of tyranny how fed up we are with them, their lying narratives, and their agendas of enslavement and mass genocide.

      • Beryl of Oyl July 26, 2021 at 11:22 am #

        We only have a handful of true “reporters” tackling these issues, and many of them are kind of specializing in one area or another, as Alex Berenson is doing with the vaccines.

        Jim is one of the ones attempting (and succeeding) to cover, and boil down. the whole picture.

    Many Americans are, at last, getting an inkling of the changes we can look forward to here at home, but most cling to the unwarranted notion that we live in a world of well—deserved allies, and just an annoying foe here and there.

    There will be much incredulity when ingrates like our NATO vassals notice that we have lost our capacity to impose our will upon them, and that their best interests now lie elsewhere.

    Will they still prefer having our missile installations on their Eastern borders to being able to stay warm in winter with Russia’s plentiful natural gas?

    And is our eternal enemy Eurasia or Eastasia?

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder July 26, 2021 at 10:05 am #

      And is our eternal enemy Eurasia or Eastasia?

      The younger generations will find out what that “dystopian satire” truly feels like when travel is so restricted that the average citizen doesn’t even know if “other countries” are real.

      Then they can really just say anything they want.

    • O.G. Hawkins July 26, 2021 at 10:17 am #

      “Ingrates,” Zoltar? People choosing to be warm in winter are “ingrates?”

            I’ve lived in 3 countries in Africa. I’ve traveled throughout Asia and throughout Europe. I’ve traveled throughout the Caribbean, Central America and to 3 different South American Countries. I’ve also lived in 5 different US states and traveled to every single US state. I’ve met countless pleasant and friendly people everywhere I’ve been. I’ve also met some real a–holes everywhere I’ve been. People are people everywhere. This incessant need on the part of some to demonize one country and most of its people and glorify people from other countries is bizarre. I will say this, I’m African-American (as in, born in America and half my family is African – from many different countries) and my skin is brown. The most racism I’ve ever experienced has been in Asia – and primarily China. The least has been in the US, no matter the state. Does that excuse the US meddling in the affairs of, say, Nicaragua? NO. But, I also don’t look kindly on China trying a second go around of colonizing large parts of Africa either. So , go peddle your biases somewhere else.

        • SpeedyBB July 26, 2021 at 3:43 pm #

          Beryl, that was certainly true when I first began to visit the countries of east Asia in the 1960s, engaging with intelligent people and sharing what I could.

          Seems like there has been a sea-change in the last 20 years or so, from my on-the-ground observations. White folk, and Americans in particular, are not indulged as they were formerly inclined to be.

          This latest “China-telling-USA-how-to-behave-globally” trend in the news is only the tip of the iceberg. Admiration for Uncle and his land o’plenty is fading fast, from my own perspective.

          And you do not have to wonder why.

Speak to folks who are black( they hate being called African Americans) those from Caribbean and Africa and they like it here, while acknowledge that humans have enslaved others thought out history.

        It’s called sarcasm which, in context, is pretty clear. Why would I talk about “imposing our will” on “vassals” if that wasn’t a case?

        To walk you through this, the atrocious Trump was right in suggesting that NATO should be disbanded. If he had prevailed, that might have happened on somewhat more amicable terms. With senile old Joe pushing western Europe around again, they will part from us with a good deal less good will, and it will serve us right.

            Mary, a big unanswered question to me is, how did this guy with this history get so close to the president, and remain there?

            I know, he might have seemed like the obvious choice for the task force.

            But why didn’t anyone delve into his background just a little (not everyone is old enough to remember his AIDS failures) and get him out of there?

            President Trump had no one who had his back.

            I was always a bit unclear about the AIDS fiasco, Mary.

            But after watching so many videos of Mullis, the parallels between the Covid Hoax and AIDS are hard to miss.

            That said, the Swine Flu Hoax falls in there, too. I had no idea what a scam that was until listening to how Wolfgang Wodarg single-handedly put an end to it.

            Beryl, the mainstream scientific community does not see Fauxi’s AIDS fiasco as a fiasco. The average person doesn’t understand that it was orchestrated and that the cure was the actual disease.

            The experts from Ft. Benning should know. After all they are the most likely candidates who first created the “novel coronavirus” before sending it to Wuhan in the care of Dr. Fraudski for further development at a cheaper hourly rate.
            (After all, that is the Globalist Way.) My evidence is that the originators of the COVID19 bio-weapon were so incompetent that they were only able to produce a viral pandemic that left 99.9% of its victims alive. Hard to believe that the Israelis, Russians, or Chinese could have done such a lousy job.

            ” If you’re not vaccinated yet, get your shot today and stay safe!”

            Those evil masters of propaganda the Russians are having trouble convincing over 10% of their population to take the Shot even though their Sputnik vaccine is an actual vaccine rather than an untested exercise in genetic reprogramming. Maybe they should study the methods of coercion being employed by the Americans. Their failure is quite a contrast to the USA where 50-60 % of the people are brain dead and will follow their “Leaders” toward any available cliff.

            Israel is the most heavily vaccinated nation on earth. They had a huge spike in infections and deaths immediately after the their mass inoculations, the majority among the “fully vaccinated.” Their health ministry is now reporting that the Pfizer /Maderna shots are 39% effective.

            Compare that to the 95% effectiveness for Ivermectin reported by a meta study of 24 highly rated double blind studies. Dr Kory did a wonderful job of destroying the “We need more verification” fraud in a recent interview. Censored and removed within two days. Just like his Senate committee testimony last fall.

      Just say you are in the “control group” or that you are trying to get pregnant.

      I mean, it IS a “clinical trial” seeing as that there was never the usual 10-15 year testing.

      So, since everybody is all about “the science”, there has to be a comparable “control group” so in 4-5 years we can do “scientific” studies to see how the jabbed did compared to the un-jabbed!

      Plus then they can see if the natural immunities in the control group worked better than in the immunities in the jabbed group.

      We are around a fifty-fifty split right now.

      Bobby Kennedy Jr., Dr. Peter McCullough and others are right.

      They would look at me, listen politely, maybe nod a little, as if they suddenly discovered they were talking to a crazy person.

      Now suddenly it’s been “discovered” that those tests are a bad thing.

      Right after Bill Gates and George Soros bought into testing.

      Remember when people who said Bill Gates was behind this were called conspiracy theorists?

      The new conspiracy theory is that the new “tests” will administer the not -really-a-vaccine without one’s knowledge.

      That is the hall of mirrors Jim is talking about.

      Brilliant title.

      Seems like a hall of mirrors in the “fun house” has been a motif in a number of noir films: once you get into the “fun house” anything can happen. Which image of the guy, or gal, with the gun pointing at you is real? Are they pointing it at you or at someone else?

      Wasn’t there a “fun house” scene The Maltese Falcon?

      Just tried to find the scene, and find that my audio for Youtube is not working. I also noticed this last night—that Twitter vids were muted. I also tested out a Corona Ausschuss session and there was no audio.

      I tested out my laptop’s audio with videos on my computer, plus with Zoom, and that is working.

    “Evolving national woe”

    Exactly, the Covid is a vanguard, a contrived lead in to the power that is needed to pull off the reset.

    The Dems are doing what they always do, problem evolves, spend lots of money that never makes it to the problem. No surprise.

    One thing about this 3.5 trillion dollar infrastructure bill is the huge increase that federal spending has hockey sticked up. The good news is that it looks like the opposition has enough left to block it until 2022. A good election in 2022 will stop the insanity. I cannot wait for Pelosi to give over that gavel again, especially if as rumored, to Trump.

    To all the Covid deniers here, just keep on trucking. The latest mask and vaxx threat is Dem hot air. Your anti-government stance will make a big difference in 2022. Compared to last year, the Delta infection is trivial.

    • JohnAZ July 26, 2021 at 10:26 am #

        They got half (or more?) of the country in less than a year. Well, five years, if you count the four years of public grooming through the Trump years to make everything seen through the lens of one side or the other, no other thoughts allowed.

        The “unconverted” half will lose legions shortly, due to the tightening noose of restrictions on the horizon coming for themselves and their families, both publicly and privately…many will eventually (and soon) just say, “Fuck it, give me the damn thing already and let’s move on.”

    What I’ve been observing, is that it isn’t the MAGA types leaving the vaccine alone so much as it is the black working class.

          There is so little it is criminal. The CDC came out with recommendations early last year to wear masks, separate, wash hands, do not congregate indoors. The CDC and WHO told us over and over it did not spread human to human, then it only spread in droplets then it was airborne. All early last year. Nothing much since for prevention.

          They have destroyed every “cure” attempt.

          They have pushed the vaccine as a last resort. Now when he vaccines s protein bits look like they can cause excess inflammation in susceptible folks, they do not even analyze their VAERS data for trends or contraindications. It is almost like take the jabs and take your chances.

    I’ll stipulate to the corruption of the ‘Left’. Do you honestly think the ‘Right’ is any better? Did you or anyone honestly think the Trump & Co. were going to right any of these wrongs? Keep dreaming. They’re the same type of grifters, thick as thieves.

    And as for “What’s more, they want their country back — a land of free speech, fair play, and settled principle, like the right to a speedy trial.” Have you ever met any of these people? Most Americans, Right or Left, couldn’t tell the Constitution from the Declaration of Independence – maybe 2% tops.

    That’s how screwed we are…

      The only ones who can’t tell the difference Fischer are the plagues of zombie dependent frogs who just ignoranusly comply with and obey the official state sponsored narrative,. Most of the others you just threw under the bus can tell the difference because the Declaration of Independence actually says DECLARATION at the top of the document and anyone could surmise that the Constitution must be the other one. You should give your fellow countrymen a little more credit.

    • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 11:36 am #

      Well said, Adolph. Trump seemed to want to keep vaccination voluntary, but that may have been his role as the beautiful loser. The military guy he put in charge had a plan to vaccinate every American within 48 hours – obviously not voluntary. So there’s that on the back burner.

      Trump obviously knew it was crap and tried to warn us – without telling us directly so he ended up sounding ridiculous. “Just stop testing and it will go away”? He knew the test was crap, but was too afraid to say so.

        I suppose, unlike you, maybe some of them appreciate the good things and many sacrifices the people of America have been responsible for: the goal of doing your best to get as far in life as you can, beating the Nazis and Soviets, creating an economy that could serve as the engine of the world, even as our farmers fed the world, for starters. I’m sorry you’re too morally superior, on might say judgmental, to accept what we’ve been, the shining city on a hill that’s now under attack from without and within. And, being a good little Wokester piss-pot, you impugn America. Maybe you should go to Cuba and help the communists stamp out the protests led by all those American flag-waving people so you can feel good about your pure cause, tovarisch.

  17. Bob12065 July 26, 2021 at 10:32 am #

    OK, folks, here’s how this works.

    Last week the WSJ ran a story that stated that the fed govt had just purchased another 200 million doses of vaccine at at cost of $24/shot. That’s $4.8 billion.

    Now couple the amount of money that has been paid to the vax makers to date, and that will be paid to them in the future, along with granting the vax makers liability protection if (or more likely when) there is incontrovertible evidence that the vaccines don’t work as advertised and are actually harming people; and that big pharma is paying huge ad dollars to the MSM and to politicians’ PACs; and that people are dying or becoming invalids as a result of taking the vaccines…and everything becomes crystal clear. People are getting huge payoffs for producing the vax, and encouraging folks to take the vax, and eliminating any liability for the production and distribution of products that may being doing more harm than good.

    That, my friends, is it in a nutshell.

    • JohnAZ July 26, 2021 at 10:44 am #

      Time will tell, and that is all that matters with Covid. All the politicking is meaningless. If it is proven that the vaxx is a product of the evil empire, there will be hell to pay.

    • Beryl of Oyl July 26, 2021 at 11:08 am #

      I read somewhere that the basis for issuing the EUA for the vaccines was that they were going to prevent transmission of the virus. That was the “emergency”.

      Now we are all aware (or maybe not) of what was known by some from the start- these vaccines don’t prevent infection or transmission. They only (in theory) may prevent hospitalization or death from the virus.

      THat’s not a bad thing, of course, but it does negate any justification for trying to force vaccinations on anyone not in a high risk category, especially children.

      My point is, if the EUA was issued under false pretenses, the vaccines are a major case of fraud from the get-go.

      The only reason for lying and obscuring what the vaccines can or cannot be expected to do is to get the vaccine passports instituted.

      The vaccine pushers will tell any lie in pursuit of that goal, even cover up the danger to young people.

      How is it not glaringly obvious to everyone that the vaccine passports have nothing to do with public health?

      There is no “public health” by the way, as one person’s state of health has nothing to do with another’s.

      Why is it that the French, the Italians, the Brits, and many others have figured this global scam out, and so many Americans have not?

      • abbybwood July 26, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

        It’s worse than that.

        By law the FDA had to exhaust all potential therapeutic protocols to treat Covid-19 and if there was a successful medical protocol then there would be no need for an “emergency use authorization” of untested experimental jabs. Instead the CDC protocol is still “stay home until you are so sick you need to go to urgent care.” Usually too late to nip it in the bud with Ivermectin. No recommendations for
        D3, Zinc, C, aspirin etc.

        Doctors in the field world-wide quickly realized that ventilators were killing patients. They, in-spite of the WHO, Fauci and the CDC and FDA, were communicating amongst themselves and were sharing treatment protocols for early Covid and how to successfully treat patients once hospitalized.

        With zero assist from any of the vaccine promoting organizations, these doctors figured out that steroids and anti-coagulants, certain antibiotics, Zinc, D3, large doses of vitamin C via IV and Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine etc. were useful treatment options.

        By the time Trump landed at Walter Reed his doctors were using all these protocols on him, NOT because the CDC or the FDA recommended them, but because top physicians on the front lines were discovering what worked and what didn’t from good science and good common sense. And they communicated all these things to each other.

        Eventually, all of this MUST come to light in the courts. From the beginning, the FDA was in financial cahoots with Big Pharma and was fully on-board with the jabs.They had ZERO intention of finding SAFE medical protocols to successfully fight this virus.

        And for this, and for burying and censoring any honest discussions about Ivermectin and the other FLCCC protocols, the FDA should be prosecuted. No fines. Those in charge of this fully corrupt medical fraud should go to prison.

      • Not_GeorgeT July 26, 2021 at 1:01 pm #

        The EUA operates in spite of the existence of treatments. Therefore the purpose for an EUA did not exist from the start.

        The only one I’ve heard actually say the “vaccine” provides “immunity” is “Joe Biden”. Consider the source.

        When one reads the information sheets published by the pharma companies, (the package insert) there is no promise of anything, just a possibility it might limit signs and symptoms of something.

        Something like if you buy a lottery ticket, you might win a fortune.

        There is no promised panacea. This was left to the propaganda machine to fashion from thin air.

        I’ll go with the pandemic which was not a pandemic sold as the result of “tests” which were not tests was a setup to sell the expensive experimental biologic agent.

        The follow-on is the “vaccine passport” as you point out.

        Seems tens of thousand of Europeans are taking to the streets in opposition to what I’ll call the attempt to create a new normal.

      • Bilejones@hotmail.com July 26, 2021 at 6:06 pm #

        The manufacturers never claimed it prevented infection. only that it might.
        The main claim was that it would reduce the risk of hospitalization (and the increasingly mandatory death that follows).

        • Not_GeorgeT July 26, 2021 at 8:14 pm #

          I recall something in the earlier inserts which mentioned possible decrease of hospital stay.

          Couldn’t find it in their publications just now. They’ve issued updates. I’d liken it to a moving target.

          Myocarditis risk is being mentioned, couched in general terms.

          They kick a lot of it to the recurring theme of checking with one’s healthcare provider. Sort of a rite of absolution.

    • MaryQueen July 26, 2021 at 11:26 am #

    Thank you for this excellent rant, James. I think you’ve nicely summed up the current situation. I believe massive civil disobedience is the only answer to this government overreach. I’ve been watching videos of protests in England, France and Australia over vaccination passports and they are massive. So far, they’ve been peaceful, though I have seen incidents where they have driven away police and one in which mounted police trampled a man who couldn’t get out of their way as they galloped, and left him lying motionless on the street. This is going to get brutal.

    In unvanquishable number.

        I don’t think it’s the Soros agenda to use his shock troops to overthrow the Deep State. The anarchy and destruction they create is the ultimate justification for a crackdown on dissent and a totalitarian state which can drop the mask of civility.

        And when law enforcement goes out to crack down on dissent, the ‘good guys’ will be the ones they go after. (witness the Jan 06 crowd)

        The bad guys will just melt away ( never arrested) having served their purpose of provocation.

          Not a dig.

          A realization that the right side has its opposition to the government just like the other two on the Left. Crazier alliances have occurred in history.

          Also a realization that the real goal of the anti-US crowd is the destruction of the country and the divisions they are promulgating are their tool.

          • hmuller July 26, 2021 at 5:30 pm #

            Are you saying Antifa and BLM are anti-government? Or did I misunderstand you, JohnAZ? No way are they anti-establishment.

            Clearly the deep sate, MSM, and mega corporations et al. are supporting and funding those phony organizations (globalist politicians are refusing to prosecute the rioters arrested)

            Of course, when they no longer serve the bad guy’s agenda, the money stops. The leadership counts its take. The rank and file conveniently die from the vaccine or return to their homeless encampments.

          • JohnAZ July 26, 2021 at 8:05 pm #

            Yes

            They are anti-US, personified by the government.

            They want themselves in control. Look at Seattle and Portland.

            They are have nots that want to steal from the haves and do not care who the PTB are. They want to be the government.

            Why the MSM et al support them, they are also antiUS.

          • hmuller July 26, 2021 at 9:06 pm #

            JohnAz,

            I don’t think the country is the government and vice versa. In fact, I would say there’s a big rift between the people and their corrupt, unresponsive politicians. It’s like we are a people under attack from many sides.

            The invasion of the Soros body snatchers has turned many of our so-called leaders into globalist zombies.

            I see Antifa and BLM as anti-law and order, demonic enemies of humanity and all that is decent.. But when the city council, the mayor, the DA in various cities support them, tolerate their looting and burning, release without charge any arrested – you need to ask yourself what’s really going on.

      • draupnir July 26, 2021 at 11:20 am #

There are going to be massive brawls over the lifeboats. Actually there already are. At this point its probably either time to take over the ship or try to jump onto the top of one of the bergs

      Certainly many people here cheered and welcomed it.
      “If you’re not doing anything bad, why worry?”

      Until they change what is bad.

      “ FBI’s long history of orchestrating such plots and luring people into them using informants and undercover agents. Much of that reporting about the FBI’s tactics was published by The Intercept, which — when aimed at American Muslims during the First War on Terror — had an editorial view that it was extremely improper and dangerous for the FBI to do this. But now that it is being done to American anti-government activists on the right, the site’s liberal editors seem happy about it.”

      • MisterBimmler July 26, 2021 at 4:50 pm #

        Those of us who counted themselves as anti-war had to answer the accusation that opposing FISA mission creep was opening the door to ‘Another 9-11’. I’d argue that the first one was not what the average person thought at the time. Like the JFK hit, the Alamo, the Maine, Lusitania and Gulf of Tonkin, more and more people are coming to the realization that what comes over the Teevee is not in alignment with anything you could call ‘actuality’.

    Reports like this are going on all over the place:

    https://twitter.com/biddle_leo/status/1419228705503600644

    And then later ‘retracted’ and ‘corrected’ to say all the ill in ICU are unvaxxed.

    In this report linked above, he clearly says they were all vaccinated.

    This is how they will hide the vaccination injuries until people start standing up against it and demanding they report accurately.

    • SoftStarLight July 26, 2021 at 12:21 pm #

      Wow! He sure did say they were all vaccinated with the stipulation that only one person had just one shot compared to all others that had both! And so that right there begs the question of how effective the alleged vaccines are!

      • O.G. Hawkins July 26, 2021 at 1:30 pm #

    Another excellent offering from JHK!

    I wish I shared his optimism.

    I am convinced Americans will continue to make excuses and roll up their sleeves.

    I smirked when Raggedy Ann announced a “strike force” would be coming to our doors to educate us about vaccines. I want to believe armed men on the front porch will spur patriots to action but no – most Americans will bend over rather than fight for liberty.

    Get along and go along….straight to hell.

    • hmuller July 26, 2021 at 11:03 am #

      Mr Jones,
      Those door to door knockers are the chumps – the expendable ones. The deep state would be delighted if a bunch of good old boys drilled them full of lead. It provides the excuse for a harder crackdown, deeper tyranny.

      The ones who really have the power never expose themselves as targets to our wrath. That’s the frustrating part.

      • C.O.Jones July 26, 2021 at 11:16 am #

        Good points, hmuller – I agree.

        Sending armed and gullible expendable ones to “educate” the citizenry is the height of cynicism. Listen closely and you can hear the PTB laughing.

        My first tendency is to think an election could straighten this out but we can’t even sort out the last electoral fiasco, much less organize an honest future election. Are they sitting on both thumbs in AZ? I know they are in GA…

        The ones who really have the power are the ones controlling the “elected” so upon reflection, an election won’t help.

        With this realization – then, what?

            Right. I was not saying to abolish man’s institutions of Law & Justice. Cleaned, yes. Abolish, no.

            What I was saying is, “Do not pray to God for Him to smite your enemy.” He doesn’t like that.

            You are Right, of course, Yoho. Great men can indeed divinely act in furthering His goals of Truth & Justice.

            So OG, are you saying I (if I were a great man) could smite the wicked; decapitate and disembowel them – all that good stuff. But I can’t pray to God to do that for me. What the heck? Why does he insist I get my hands bloody?

    • SoftStarLight July 26, 2021 at 11:09 am #

      And you are likely correct that a sizable majority will go along and follow the path of least resistance. Overall that is about what you can expect of people generally. Keep in mind that it was only a very small percentage of the colonists who revolted against England. It doesn’t take a majority to change everything. Just like now in the ongoing coup, it has been a small minority of people actually running things.

    Thank you Mr. K for the admonishment! It is easy for one to get distracted with today’s media saturation and the 24/7 disinformation-distraction machine. I think part of their goal is of course the disinformation and distraction. But I do think they also want people to ultimately give up out of exasperation and inundation. Based on where we are at it seems like a new and more fitting political slogan would be.. Make America Livable Again..

    I’m not going to take a jab with a unproven vaccine, those that did and didn’t explore prophylaxis like Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine which have been proven to remedy the covid-19 in those that took it with zero % side effects unlike the vaccine. when the virus has a 99%+ death rate for those who are not elderly or pre-morbidity you would have to be a Burlnut or a commie to take it

    • abbybwood July 26, 2021 at 7:18 pm #

      It is NOT “unproven”!

      It is proven to sometimes kill you and sometimes give you neurological disorders and sometimes give you blood clots and strokes or take your platelets to ZERO and sometimes give you 20 seizures a day and sometimes give you myocarditis (especially if you are a teenage boy) and sometimes cause your fetal child to die.

      This is a freakin’ “proven vaccine”.

      Never give a sucker an even break, eh?

    Another excellent post today, Jim.

    I wonder if the numb nuts in charge have considered what happens when they get their way and most or all of the population takes the poison prick, only to find out after the fact that it’s having all kinds of delayed effects on the herd and that they’re all walking around with a time bomb in them waiting to explode. In short: in addition to all the other miseries inflicted on regular people these days in the course of simply trying to make a living, they have to worry about something as basic as they’re day to day health and every little ache, pain, or unexplained feeling is cause for alarm. Turn up the cultural nihilism to 11 and watch every socio- and psycho- path out there come out of the woodwork – as if we’re not nearly there already. But then again, maybe that’s exactly what they’re hoping for?

    • SoftStarLight July 26, 2021 at 11:11 am #

      I do believe that’s the plan.

      Everything they’ve done to the population since day 1 is straight out of the touchless torture brochure, and social programming 101.

      They told us to do the opposite of what we should have in order to stay healthy, told us to stay indoors (where we don’t get vitamin D), not to take supplements but rely solely on experimental poison jabs.

      I agree, this should be a no-brainer but the media presence is too overwhelming, not just here but globally. Imagine what they are all being paid to sell it. My college is getting millions just to push the agenda. Get this, they admit there hasn’t been one CASE in our entire school district – since the beginning. AND YET they are opening a vaccination station and force-masking people.

  26. tresho July 26, 2021 at 11:11 am #

    Eric Topol certainly has a stellar reputation. He spent 13 years as a muckety-muck at the Cleveland Clinic (CCF). In 2002 he played a major role in securing a $100 million donation to fund the startup of the Lerner College of Medicine, affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic and the CWRU school of medicine.
    Speaking as a physician who has worked near the Clinic (never for it) since 1979 I have always been impressed by the bad attitude the Clinic seems to have for practitioners not directly affiliated with it. It seldom communicates with them on the patients of those practitioners who have been affiliated with it. Getting medical records of those patients from the Clinic has been very difficult. This CCF ‘tude is commonly known among clinicians in NE OH in particular. On Thanksgiving my sister was hospitalized at one of their hospitals for COVID-19. I made multiple requests for one of the CCF physicians on her case to call me while she was hospitalized. They never did. She was discharged rather abruptly to one of their skilled nursing facilities for rehab. I also asked physicians there to call me, they never did. She was not able to walk when she was discharged from there (again our family was not consulted, just notified about her discharge the day it happened). She was sent back with just a walker to assist her (which she could only use with 2 people standing by), without a cane, and particularly without a wheelchair which she desperately needed. I had to go to Harbor Freight on New Year’s Day to buy one for her a day or so after CCF sent her back to her assisted living facility.
    As her healthcare POA I sent a written request to CCF for my sister’s medical records. After more than one request from me for her record on a flash drive, I received a printout by mail instead, about 500 pages about 4 months after my original request. I remember hearing the loud “thump” when this ream hit my mailbox.
    As a long term former leader at the CCF Eric Topol certainly was part of this “holier-than-thou” culture, bears some responsibility for continuing its defects, and from what JHK described, still holds himself above the rest of us filthy savage deplorables.
    The experts … aren’t.

    The Market Ticker dude thinks getting the shot may make you more of a spreader of the virus, and he explains it in his colorful way:

    “Work in health care? I don’t care if you are in direct patient-care or not; if you work in a medical facility of any sort this applies to you if you took the jab.

    We now know if you become infected with Covid, and you had the jab, you will have a higher viral titer before becoming symptomatic, if you become symptomatic at all.

    That is, you, compared against someone who did not take the jab where you are both infected, are much more likely to transmit the virus to someone else before knowing if you get infected. Since viral replication occurs in hours per cycle, not days, testing, unless on an every day basis, is not sufficient to detect the risk”

      His lecture is based on a new study from Nature where they discover that natural Covid 19 antibodies are very likely life-long.

      As a Registered Nurse, I find this lecture to be very intriguing on a microscopic level:

    Personal note. My gf is just shy of 50, a bit heavy, a history of some sinus problems, asthma, occasional seizures, and mild auto-immune symptoms. Not perfect health, but not extremely compromised either. So, I’m unsure about vax for her. Probably against, but she’s nervous about getting covid, attracted by vaccine, and I don’t have enough evidence to counterract.

    It would be nice to have real data by which to decide. Instead, this garbage sea of hype.

    No vax for me of course. I’m not concerned with an infection.

    Hoping it becomes a little more obvious that delta and covid are almost pure hype and exaggeration except for the extreme pre-existing-condition-laden.

        Namely:

        ” it is preferable to start the treatment at the viral stage of the disease, for which a variety of treatment options exist: Zelenko protocol, i-Mask protocol, Borody protocol, McCullough algorithm, etc. Yet, many patients contact their family practitioner several days after their first symptoms, which reduces the effectiveness of protocols focusing solely on the viral stage of COVID-19.”

            I am not convinced that covid19 is anything different than the flu, uness it was weaponized (and not well) by the Fauxi/Gates cabal.

            But a friend said that one can be tested for Sars-2 (a coronavirus, hardly novel), and if so, why wouldn’t people be doing this before getting a vaccine?

    • JohnAZ July 26, 2021 at 2:23 pm #

      The history of irregular immune responses MIGHT make her more immune responsive to the virus or the s proteins which seems to separate the moderately sick from the seriously sick. Taking the jab could be a problem with overreaction, but getting the disease could be worse. Risk management is at hand here. Very hard decision.

      The lack of concrete data is a real bummer. Our CDC has been horrible at exploring this disease to give us advice.

      If it was me, I would skip the shot and concentrate on avoiding exposure to the disease. This “surge” is nothing compared to last summer.

    • Islander July 26, 2021 at 3:01 pm #

      Most important:

      Informed consent.

      Awareness of the VAERS info.

      Awareness of stats re prognosis for those with comorbidities.

      Awareness of early treatment and available of physician who will treat early covid if needed.

      It is up to her to make a decision about the jab.

    Beautiful piece, JHK. Thank you.

    Another very strange and deeply disturbing component of the Biden administration’s assault on the U.S. is its intentional flooding of the country with hundreds of thousands if not millions of illegals from all over the world who are Covid-19- (and in many cases TB and other disease-) positive. The Biden administration is flying and driving these illegals deep into the U.S. once they enter the U.S. No requirement that these new arrivals get tested, quarantined, or vaccinated. But U.S. citizens face new lockdowns, mandates, and ostracisms. Does the Biden administration, by this strategy, seek to ensure that Covid-19 threats remain active at least until the 2024 elections? It would seem so.

    The funny thing about wokesters is that they support science only when it suits them. For example, the IQ differences between different human groups are not supposedly “science”, despite of over 100 years of psychometric research.

    That is because it challenges their little Kumbaya-Wakanda utopia bullshit. But many of them still use psychometric tools in their own work, especially in the woke HR departments! Those departments usually are filled with wokes.

    • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 11:49 am #

      They’ll call it something different, like an aptitude test. The Military does the same or used to at least. The very concept of IQ is verboten, except in the case of obvious retards. Some can admit genius exists, but will become very uncomfortable when one brings up the genetic aspect of it.

      • Anthea July 27, 2021 at 3:51 am #

        Judging from the hysteria of around half of the US population to covid, I’ve come to the conclusion that the average IQ of 100 is the lower limit of bare sentience. But I exaggerate. It does seem to be the lower limit of sapience, below which the possibility of abstract thought, and the ability to reason, does not exist. They regard these as something akin to supernatural powers.

        This may also be the benchmark for the formation of beliefs favoring individual freedoms. Anyone with an IQ of less than 100 probably has no faith in their own decision-making and powers of discernment–and they are probably right about that. What they are thus unable to discern is that the other half of the population is not handicapped in this way.

    My. The smoke is still in the air from all the truth bullets shot here.

    I listened to Bret Weinstein’s podcast before reading today’s blog.

    He was a little disappointed by Harris’s latest. But Bret is just too nice and too diplomatic to say anything more than he was a little concerned.

    I won’t listen to little Sam.
    Even his pandering tone (hushed, calm, present) is off-putting.
    Contrived.

    There is nobody more proud of himself than Sam Harris. There is nobody more unable to cede points or admit defeat in an argument.
    And it happens far too often. He’s nothing more than a smug POS that devotes an inordinate amount of time reframing and rationalizing the arguments he loses against better thinkers.

    They’re simply incapable of understanding his brilliance.
    That’s all you’re left with.

    Once, a clearly exasperated Daniel Dennett sounded like he wouldn’t let Harris shine his loafers.

    I did listen to Darkhorse. Bret explains himself clearly without the mealy-mouth equivocations of Harris.
    Fresh Air, and not the Teri Gross variety.

    But he’s dangerous
    Because you know, he has a different take

    And in other news, this past weekend in Chicago,

    70 shot, 12 dead!

    Yes, you read that right.

    The bodies are piling up; meanwhile, Sleepy Joe has the entire LE apparatus of the US Government tracking down White Supremacists, looking high and low. Last night I was listening to a CBS broadcast about Chicago and the commentator was essentially blaming the mayhem, carnage and enduring bloodbath in Chicago on FFL dealers in Indiana and Iowa, never even alluding to the people doing the actual shooting. (Bolstering my view that the MSM at best are worthless, at worst, deceitful, mendacious lying POS)

      There was an ex- gang guy somewhere i saw this weekend, he was a lifer but now out of the life. He was a higher up guy. He said most of the guns were stolen from trains passing through Chicago. Chicago being a huge hub. The big gun makers are primarily in the east and the guns pass through there on the way around the country. True? I have no idea.

        Chicago is certainly a major shipping distribution hub. Huge warehouses. It seems that much of the imported goods shipped from the west coast also pass through Chicago.

        Other major cities also have such distribution hubs.

        This is something to think about if many of the major cities were to descend into chaos in the future.

Headlines of note: electric battery production to cease 2025 due to dearth of components; majority of delta cases requiring hospitalization consists of jabbed morons; bidet calls, along with shitsacki, for censorship of anything accurate re coved lies; dem cities further decent pinto lawlessness, as evidenced by several street video’s (two in New York take the prizes).
    The former America people pine for is GONE. The remnants are comprised of far left (woke), left, clueless, right and lastly, informed, armed, supplied and with connection to others of a like mindset. The most significant means of identification of said categories is geographical, which makes avoidance easy.
    6 Jan witch trials will solidify the ideation of a two tiered “justice” system, proving the former social construct we’ve adhered to is DAID. Time to identify one’s own behavioral construct, what constitutes violation thereof and levels of adjudication and associated penalties. In the current environ, one can only seek a semblance of control/ability to influence the immediate area of operations, all else is effort ill spent. Cost/benefit analysis will be paramount to positive outcome. As I’ve noted before: Keep low – move fast, shoot first- die last. Nuff Said

    This is what’s giving me hope that those in charge of the US won’t succeed with their Covid vaccination plans and why they are getting rather desperate.

    In France, Italy, UK, Germany they are protesting and sometimes doing it with violence by destroying and vandalizing vaccination centers. There are now police confrontations with tear gas and arrests. From mobs who are NOT ARMED. That’s not a problem in the US at least 50% of the nation is armed.

      The narrative word can be difficult to avoid, given the alternatives under the present state of affairs.

      Would iteration fit? How about anecdote? That was a favorite one former MA governor and BO protoge liked to use. Lot’s of anecdotes happened, those being inconvenient facts and incidents.

      Why can’t the trespassers of Jan. 6th be considered anecdotes? The mostly peaceful protesters of last Spring and Summer continuing to the present might wear it well.

      • Blackbird July 26, 2021 at 10:13 pm #

        If gender is a “construct” – as the woke tell us – then how can protesters be considered as anything more – most likely less – than a construct? Due to their ephemeral nature (with the exception of the imprisonment part), I would suggest that the protesters are little more than notions.

    I’m now seeing that Big Healthcare is calling for mandatory Covid jabs for all healthcare workers. The next step, of course, will be all workers and after that, all U.S. residents (except illegal aliens).

    And according to a recent WSJ article, Big Pharma is now pursuing a Covid pill to halt Covid symptoms. Back in April the WSJ had a piece by Scott Gottlieb and Mark McClellan calling for a “Covid pill that could be taken after exposure, or soon after symptoms appear, to stop the infection from progressing.” So what will those pills contain—HCQ and Ivermectin??

    “…you still have to break some glass to see clearly.”

    But there are some extremely important things that still need to be clarified.

    Where did this completely out of control power entity that we are all now facing come from?

    Is this entity a consequence of a tendency within all of us– a kind of conglomeration of unconstrained ambition and desire for control?

    Is this power entity new or possibly of ancient origin–something that tends to repeat itself throughout human history?

    Can this power entity be best described as a type of deity or God?

    Can this entity actually be resisted or does it continually and quite elegantly eventually absorb all of its critics-including everyone on this site.?

    If it is somehow beginning to collapse, is this collapse being initiated because of a growing lack of faith in its narrative?

    Strange twist in SAfrica. Last weeks looting and civil disorder was unprecedented, worse than Minneapolis last summer worse than LA in ’92. Well, the SA govt. cracking down, not on the tens of thousands of black looters and arsonists, but on a group of Indian business people who banded together and tried to protect their property. About 10 looters were shot, allegedly by these ‘Vigilante Racists’. A group of Indians have been arrested and charged with murder. Malema’s EEF and Young ANC members are in the streets, calling for their execution. These South Asian business people, all S African citizens, claim they were on their own in the face of the mobs, Police did not come, and the police who did arrive took part in the looting. At any rate its being called the Phoenix Massacre. It reminds one of events in Portland and Seattle last summer, civilians stopped on city streets and dragged from their cars and beaten; when they resisted and tried to defend themselves, they themselves were arrested for assaulting Mostly Peaceful Protesters. Keep an eye on SA as the shape of things to come in the USA.

    Here are some things that are unmentionable, both by the right and left wings in America:

    -most minorities, including blacks, are actually more conservative than liberals like to admit (blacks, for instance, have never much supported the gay movement, blacks who make it big don’t like taxes, and most mexicans and asians put a strong emphasis on family, work, etc.)

    -however, because of racial politics, blacks, mexicans, and asians vote left, even though they really don’t support the liberal agenda

    -this confuses everyone; white nationalists insist that a cabal of liberals and their colored armies is destroying america, but no such coalition exists; in the meantime, even liberals like to believe in this coalition, always dreaming it will finally destroy white american power, when no such thing happens largely because there are too many white americans with too much wealth

    -the rich don’t care about americans, at all; americans are naive and believe the rich are the good and successful guys who made it, or heroes like bruce wayne etc. but in reality, once they have left the rest behind, the rich only care about their continued consumption, which of course relies on the continued fiction of financial asset valuations; this is unmentionable because the rich control both the left and right in america, they control all discourse

    -the result of all of this is mass confusion; americans from this point can never really be aligned with anything in their best interest, there is too much race and class confusion, so americans will never see clearly where their interests really lie

    -the end result of all of this must eventually be the breakup of the nation

    • MaryQueen July 26, 2021 at 4:51 pm #

      I’ve observed pretty much the same thing. Well said.

    • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 5:38 pm #

      Those groups support the Liberal Agenda because it puts them ahead of Whites – who are slandered 24/7/365. Do the Elite really really love the minorities? Probably not. Do they hate Whites? Maybe not. But their polices are what they are: minorities advanced at our expense. Perhaps a divide and conquer approach by putting the largest ethnic group on the bottom – the one that actually build America.

      So the answer is for all the groups to ally against the Elite? That would be against human nature in general and against the best interests of the minorities who have put above us. And we certainly weren’t united in some mythical conservative past.

      I admit there is a conflict between the ethnocentrism of the minorities and the Elite’s agenda. The minorities seek to conserve themselves in this blended mess. And to rise up, displacing those who have helped them. So you’re right about that, but only that.

        If somehow we can get beyond investing woke ideology in a symbol created from nothing (no, the empty set won’t do; it’s maff) that represents a previous now-rejected state of being, we may begin to make progress. I submit for purposes of illustration only “$” — The NFL Team Formerly Known as The Washington Redskins.

        • cowbell81 July 26, 2021 at 5:11 pm #

          Given the propensity for Greek naming variants maybe they could use those symbols for the sports teams. Better yet, invent an entirely new sequence of symbols or language that will leave no one offended, much as Prince did.

          I like your $ sign example for the Redskins. Makes me think of another noted musician, Ke$ha. The Cleveland Indians could be * (refer to Kurt Vonnegut for the meaning behind that symbol).

    “… this strife over Covid-19 is but one part of a much bigger picture of evolving national woe.”

    Back when prize fighting was big thing, many TV shows and movies had scenes with a badly beaten and bruised and exhausted fighter barely standing upright and straining to keep his eyes open and arms still extended in at least a pose of self-defense.

    The American people (and much of the World) today ARE that badly beaten and bruised and exhausted fighter barely standing upright and straining to keep eyes open and arms still extended in at least an almost pathetic pose of self-defense.

    We have been softened up and pummeled and taken beatings coming at us from various directions that have hit us repeatedly above and below the belt and even into those once-private bodily regions that were considered sacred and off-limits to outsiders. But even those limitations are now obliterated as the ongoing violation of the human body and spirit goes on without letup.

    We have been completely softened up for… what? The final massive right-cross that lays us out half-lifeless on the cold dirty ring canvas for the Final Count?

    How do we summon the strength to deal with our pain and the heaviness in our limbs and in our human spirits? Where do we find the strength to summon and call upon our God-given right of self-defense in the face of such an onslaught?

    We beg for time to heal and get our wits back. But there is no time. The body blows keep coming and our arms and eyes get heavier and the need to find strength has never been greater.

    Hollywood has already given us two possible outcomes. The badly-beaten fighter summons impossible strength to mount a furious defense and somehow prevails against all odds. Or, the massive right-cross comes from The Opponent and the tired heap of a broken fighter is laid out on the canvass for the Final Count in a pathetic heap of wasted effort and broken dreams. And the Opponent gets a wicked sick smile on his face and revels in his abusive punishing final blow and desecration of a human being.

    OK I’ll be the odd man out today! LOL

    A pandemic of the unvaccinated – epidemiologically, that is exactly what is happening, to all of us. Until/unless substantially more people are vaccinated, all of us are at increased risk because every newly infected person is essentially a “virus factory,” making unending copies of virus and creating new mutations of it. To ignore that simple reality is to put your head deep in the sand.

    Let the wailing and gnashing of teeth begin!

    • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 5:47 pm #

      You forget that the Vaccine doesn’t stop people from getting infected, but only suppresses the symptoms. Thus they are carrying it around with them, while it mutates inside them.

      The unvaxed, if they get it, go thru the disease process and then it’s over.

      • Night Owl July 26, 2021 at 6:05 pm #

      • JohnAZ July 26, 2021 at 7:06 pm #

        The majority of the pandemic in India were unvaccinated. That is where the delta developed. Same with South America, where lambda came from.

        Mutations come from the whole virus being regenerated in situ. Makes no difference vaxx or not. If the vaxx is ineffective in a person, the whole virus infects them. Saying that, if the vaxx changes the immune reaction of folks, maybe the immune reaction amplifies the potential for mutation.

        This is not new. Flu has been mutating for millennia. Why do we not know exactly what is going on, what causes mutation and what can be done to stop mutation. We should know right now if the vaccine can amplify mutations.

        What exactly have all the money going into virus labs been doing for years and years?

          ” Makes no difference vaxx or not. If the vaxx is ineffective in a person, the whole virus infects them. Saying that, if the vaxx changes the immune reaction of folks, maybe the immune reaction amplifies the potential for mutation.”

          I dno’t think this is how it works. I think you are missing the basics.

          Per Dr. McC (discussed this in detail in interview with Del Bigtree) and others, giving a vaccine in the middle of an epidemic is what creates the accelerated selection pressure. This is why he and others are saying: stop the vaccine program now, before this dynamic gets worse and there is more opportunity for stronger variants to develop against which the vaccines have no efficacy. For all of the reasons discussed here at length. Why don’t you get this yet? Anyone with a very slight understanding of evolution should be able to get this without much difficulty.
          Per McC the alpha variant is dead and gone, there were hundreds of daughter variants out there, and this has now been narrowed down to about six. A person can also have more than one variant in his/her body at one time.

    The Roman philosophers had a universal condescension towards “religion”, which they deemed to be superstition, but useful.

    Christianity basically used Roman tolerance to hollow Rome out from within.

    • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 5:48 pm #

      The extreme persecutions were real since the Christians refused to acknowledge the Emperor’s connection to Divinity – basically his right to rule in Roman terms.

      • Pucker July 26, 2021 at 6:14 pm #

        The problem is that a Polytheistic religion is inherently tolerant of other religions and readily absorbs the new deity to the pantheon, but a monotheistic religion rejects all other gods. It would have been hard to crush Christianity as it offers what everyone wants (an afterlife), and it appeals to the mass of poor and their superstition. Now, we’ve got this “Woke” religion hollowing out social norms.

        Monopoly Capital, the Chinese, the Democratic Party, and the Deep State basically used our open democratic framework to corrupt our institutions and to hollow us out from within.

        What can you do?

        • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 6:47 pm #

          Yes, Monotheism helps build a strong State. Somehow the pagan Romans managed without it though.

          Interesting fact: The Church later came across the same situation in Japan and China. It’s not that every one actually thought the Emperor was descended from the gods or that he was an incarnation of the Logos or Tao, although some did. Burning incense to him or his spirit (genius) was the way of showing your allegiance. You didn’t have to believe the same way as the simple, but you didn’t have the right to rock their faith either.

          After basically fomenting a bloody and failed civil war on one of the major Japanese islands, the Jesuits abstained from doing the same the same thing in China. Awkward, since this is what they had done long ago in old Rome: Calling into question the legitimacy of the Emperor and thus the Empire.

    HMMM. I think what we have here is a “Let’s burn down the Library at Alexandria” moment. In the early years of the CE, lower class Christian masses had had enough of the politicking and hijinks of the ruling classes in Alexandria. And so one day, a large crowd of them stopped the chariot of a high priestess that had just given an oration, and cut her to small pieces, with sharpened shells. Then they burned the Library. I’m sure it felt good and seemed like the right idea at the time, but the loss of information set the human race back about 500 years.

    Our ruling classes may very well be total a**holes that despise the people they rule, even as they are sucking the life out of their subjects. That does not mean everything they say is untrue, or that living in the dark ages would be better.

    “A Pandemic Of The Unvaccinated”

    The CDC identified 10,000 COVID-19 infections in fully vaccinated people by May so they stopped counting. I’m not joking. This isn’t satire. They stopped counting.

    Now, the headlines say “pandemic of the unvaccinated” and “99% of new COVID cases come from the unvaccinated”.

    Well obviously, if you stop counting COVID-19 infections in the “vaccinated” then all the COVID-19 infections are going to come from the “unvaccinated”.

    Dr. Peter McCullough says the reality is that around 50% of current COVID-19 infections are coming from the vaccinated.

      I read somewhere about two weeks ago that the Pfizer vaccine was only about 54% effective against the delta. Also read that Pfizer has already started work on a booster that is aimed at the delta.

      Again, the lack of data is hurting everything. What the heck is CDC doing anyway other than a propaganda tool for Biden and the boys?

      Is the delta infection within expected limits? I know the flu shot has annual records worse than 50% effectiveness. A realistic analysis needs to be done, right now, on the intensity of Covid.

      Is Covid have the same effect as the flu today? If so, lockdowns should be outlawed and masks removed.

      But wait one, should we continue work to eradicate both coronaviruses and flu viruses. We lose billions in lost productivity every year to the flu. The flu vaccine, when on mark, is a deterrent. Do we need to continue work on both flu and coronavirus vaccines to at least help susceptible folks, or maybe to eliminate the damn illnesses from the population.

      The key is what goal to set while we open up society. If a Covid/ flu shot was developed each year, is that a bad thing?

      Or maybe a legitimate cure for the virus’ damage be developed.

      • Yohannon July 26, 2021 at 7:52 pm #

        We have Flu vaccines – about 40% effective. Now they want to create a mRNA one and they will probably claim it’s 95% effective. Will you believe them?

    Apparently, my ancestors, the Celts, were extremely superstitious, in fact, probably whacked out nutty-as-fuck superstitious given their matriarchal bent. Let’s face it: Woman are Fuck’n Crazy since their psychology is based on the lunar cycle, like the weather, storms, sun spots, and tempests…. That probably ultimately explains why Christianity took Europe by storm and disemboweled the Roman Empire psychologically? That, and the fact that Christianity is not just a simple dogma, but rather a superior form of hierarchical organization?

            I think that Rome was a martial, warlike culture whose principal god was the male god Jupiter who wielded the Lightning Bolt, right? The male gods would venture down to Earth occasionally from Mt. Olympus to fornicate with the human females much to the chagrin of the female Roman gods. Hence, a patriarchal society, right?

    Researcher Stands by Prediction of 2040 Civilization Collapse

    July 26, 2021

    Gaya Herrington reviewed an MIT study from 1972 that said that all the adverse effects of overpopulation will collapse civilization in 2040. Resource limitations led the study’s conclusion then. Methodologies to alleviate that problem have increased pollution and accelerated AGW leading to the collapse. Biden wants changes by 2050, oops, too late?

        Ouroboros sort of situation.

        When the energy return on investment drops to near zero, things fall apart.

        Why are the Azores, Canary, etc devoid of forest? The wood went back to Portugal as fuel (energy) for the furnaces of the day.

    Whatever all the reasons, the national and world’s failures so far to get vaccination done – nationwide and worldwide – are making us all – unvaccinated and vaccinated – more vulnerable to the manifestation of a much more infectious and lethal variant. We are collectively giving the virus time and room to run that is not necessary to give.

    This is a biological battle between species and we ignore that and disrespect that at our peril. It is a war, and it should be approached with a commensurate level of urgency and common effort and cooperation and self-sacrifice that war requires.

    I believe, despite Mr. Kunstler’s doom and gloom, that America is still a great nation, and just like for WW2 Americans can all pull together and make the collective sacrifices to fight Covid. But is going to take a lot of people, like those who post on this website who after all are a minority, to come to their senses.

        Many brave and patriotic Americans gave up their freedom to fight the enemy in WW2. Just as many are going to have to give up a few of their freedoms to fight Covid.

        Sure the vaccinations may not be the perfect solution we have at our disposal at this time. But they are the best we have. You want us to just standby and do nothing? All gargle Ivermectin maybe. As Rumsfeld famously said “You go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time.”

        And BTW many American companies made a great deal of money in WW2, like Boeing. Just like Pfizer is doing now. But this was accepted as part of the collective good of a capitalist system.

        Sorry, I don’t know what a “fringer” is. But yes, I am suggesting Mr. Kunstler may consider changing his thinking. And MaryQ I am older than dirt. My ego does need stoking by thinking I influence anybody. Just saying what I think. Just like you are.

        The problem, as I see it, is that humans do not trust their own bodies’ cellular defense mechanisms to work as Nature designed them!

        Had we, as a human population, allowed Covid-19 to spread among us, and had we all been hip to D3, Zinc, Vitamin C and therapeutics like Ivermectin from the beginning, then sure, many very old and infirmed and many who were grossly obese and diabetic and immuno-compromised would have died.

        But 99.2% of the population would have gotten the virus like any other corona virus/flu and would have developed robust antibodies, T and B cells. Even against any “variants”.

        Because our regulatory government agencies saw dollar signs and control we are now in the throes of an artificial and untested jab that is killing thousands and injuring many thousands.

        Dr. Peter McCullough is absolutely right. It is time to put a stop to the jabs and get into basic doctoring with non-patented therapeutics and supplements to boost our natural immune systems.

The Dredd blog has posted articles by microbiologists, virologist and they say we need a new view on the viruses, not the old way treat everything as a battle or a war, but find ways to communicate with them, and see how to make the virus adaptable and develop a relationship where both sides benefit

      The viruses can communicate by chemical means, but now some of these infection disease specialists, and other biologists think they can communicate by like a wifi frequency. A new study in abiotic biology is expanding our frontiers of the world of microbes. Dark horse podcasts has scientists, icu medical doctors attendings, virologists, and other certified science educated and credential folks asking simple biological questions and being banned by youtube, and other tech should worry you.

          That is the system at some other blogs where there isn’t any “reply” function (with a subthread) at all and each comment is numbered consecutively.

          The advantage to that system is that new comments are always at thee end, if one wants to stay abreast of the thread.

          Probably the best system is the one perfected by Ron Unz. All comments are shown consecutively but if you hit “reply” then your handle appears at the bottom of the comment you replied to. This makes it easy to follow.

        It is impressive that we are told their is a virus, yet it has never been traditionally isolated.

        The entire medical community has never seen it, and a modified PCR test was created using a model on how they think it might look.

        This is the greatest fraud in world history. Really ponder that for a second. No one has even seen it!

        • Islander July 27, 2021 at 9:24 am #

          NO: I don’t think that is the whole story, though.

          I mean, in identifying the virus.

          Plenty of (real) virologists are talking about the characteristics of the virus. Identifying the gene sequences in order to create an evolutionary “tree,” etc. In particular, the mutations that apply to the molecules in the spike protein.

          I have read that the Koch guidelines or whatever they are called do not apply to viruses or only apply to bacteria or some such.

          I worry that the whole “virus has not been isolated” thing is a major distraction from the way the virus(es) are being used and veers into “virus is a hoax.” NO matter what you men with this statement, you will get nowhere with it and will discredit anything else you say because there is a disease.

          Martin Armstrong, too, cautions against going into “hoax” talk if you really want to mount a resistance against the real dangers of what is being done in the name of “the virus.” I just checked his webpage and it is hard to locate older items there.

          In any event Armstrong’s site is worth a look because he does bring together a lot of disparate types of info—he is on our side, of resisting the totalitarian developments that are occurring in the name of “fighting covid.” His specialty is deep analysis of economic cycles but that is only one of his lenses.

          • MaryQueen July 27, 2021 at 12:11 pm #

            As soon as you call it a bioweapon or deadly, which it isn’t any more than a flu or cold, then you lost the battle. The bottom line is that the fatality rate remains at 0.27% and that’s with wildly exaggerated (coerced) numbers.

          • Night Owl July 27, 2021 at 3:16 pm #

            Nothing discredits what I say at this point, because there is nothing to discredit it, which is why I say what I say.

            Show the virus isolated. It is a fact that the PCR test was created from a computer model of what it could look like.

            I have stated this at least twenty times. They claim it is a novel Coronavirus — something that occurs every year.

            Flu was rolled into the Corona stats, as the CDC just admitted.

            It is a massive hoax. There is no evidence that there is a deadly virus, or that it even exists as claimed.

          • Islander July 27, 2021 at 10:46 pm #

            NO:
            “Nothing discredits what I say at this point, because there is nothing to discredit it, which is why I say what I say. ”

          • Night Owl July 28, 2021 at 4:07 am #

            Indeed, it is why I have predicted nearly every phase of this hoax. To break the circle, you need to introduce an exit ramp.

            I am not alone or special. The key is examining the evidence.

            The questions I posed don’t have answers.

            The test is worthless, flu disappeared, excess mortality is nearly the same as it was in every Western country. And the Telegraph just published a piece on the powers that be rolling in multiple comorbidities with “Corona” deaths — something those of us with brains in our heads knew when the CDC and NIH first unveiled their stats a year ago.

            Where is this plague-like virus that has forced us to shut down economies and turn free countries into police states?

            Well said, Night Owl.

            I concur, and have been saying the same thing. We have predicted every step of this and all is coming to fruition.

            Millions of us are onto the plan and have been since April 2020.

      • cbeard July 28, 2021 at 12:58 pm #

        Islander, I’m not a virologist, but my understanding is that any new variants are weaker and less harmful than the original or at least that is what I have heard said specifically about Covid.

        • Islander July 28, 2021 at 2:17 pm #

          Yes, that is typical development of a virus as it runs its course naturally through a population. Virologists say this, not me!

          Two points.

          1. Vaccinating during an outbreak is stupid because the virus is still at large in the bodies of people vaccinated, and the vaccination creates selection pressure on the virus to mutate in more deadly fashion. Fewer mutations than “naturally” would take place, and the mutation process is “channeled” into more dangerous forms. This was explained by Dr. Peter McCullough in a recent itnterview with Del Bigtree at HighWire, and is the reason that McCullough and many other physicians are calling for a halt ot this crazy jabbing program.

          https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/about-half-the-cases-are-vaccine-failures/id1227863378?i=1000530200743

          2. The existence of “variants” presumes that there is a virus that is mutating. The process of isolation of a virus sounds pretty complicated:
          https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/immunology-and-microbiology/virus-isolation

          It may also be that isolating the SARS-CoV-2 virus doesn’t actually prove that is the virus causing disease.
          Personally I think saying there is not SARS-CoV-2 virus is a bit of a dead end when it comes to understanding and resisting the propaganda war that has been unleashed.

          N.O.: Lots of people have predicted the trajectory of this whole thing. So I don’t know why you are so testy and convinced that you have been the only one paying attention.

          Here is a great video with Mark Crispin Miller, probably the earliest “propaganda tracker” and certainly one of the most savvy. Posted today at Off Guardian:

    He was probably a millenial, looked very young. So he recognizes that religion is on its way out. I thought that was an interesting observation, and something many up here have been talking about.

    I was raised Catholic (thus the first name) but have not been religious as an adult. But I am seeing that The Science taking the place of traditional religions is pretty terrifying, as it’s as crazy as the puritans or the Spanish Inquisition, just w/out a deity.

      Think of ideology and dogmatism as a pattern integrity

      like a sliding knot across manila, cotton, and nylon rope.

      The source material changes, but the pattern stays the same.

      Science is the new rope

            No, I get it all the time and really enjoy it.

            I can appreciate some of his work, but much of it fails in the arena of aesthetics.

            Look at his work. The various ugly domes, Dymaxion house and car, domes with holes, domes like tents, intricately joined structures often resembling models of complex molecules, etc.

            This is not to say his geodesic dome wasn’t radical for its time, credit for innovative thinking where such credit is due.
            His ideas on Synergetics and Spaceship Earth, similar to our host’s, are certainly even more relevant today.

            While his work was innovative and daring, the argument can be made that it was also a precursor to much of today’s modern, abysmal architecture.

            Anyway, I thought his presentation was unclear. Do you have a clear, concise definition of pattern integrity? Would periodic tiling, or Escher’s periodic tessellations qualify?

            I wish politicians had a pattern of integrity.

        He was no universal genius though. I once caught a public lecture he gave at MIT. He said, We have now attained sufficient material prosperity to make war outdated.

        That doesn’t make sense on any real level. People want more than they need. And they want yours. That was true at the Hunter Gatherer stage. For pastoralists. At the Agricultural stage. Late agricultural. Early industrial. Etc.

        There was enough for everyone for most of human history. It didn’t stop war. To outlaw war means to have all the power and weapons. It means a Great Reset into World Government. Was he for that? I have no idea. That’s the only context where his statement would make any sense – and it’s an ugly vision in any case.

        Agent Po actually said it perfectly upthread. He sees Covid19 as an enemy to be defeated. This is garbage thinking and ignorant as it gets. I compared it to the war on terror. You cannot battle a concept, and you can’t battle viruses, either. You can mitigate the injury any outside poison, bacteria, etc. does by being healthy. Period. How it’s always been. It hasn’t changed.

        The hubris on these people thinking mere humans can eradicate viruses – and esp. those we are supposed to be exposed to – is beyond the pale.

        All they did by interrupting the regular coronavirus cold season was create superstition, fake science and propagandized bullshit, in between the touchless torture we’ve been subjected to.

          MaryQ, in the high tech company I retired from I was surrounded by many well-educated, widely read, knowledgeable and intelligent professionals. I also have two daughters who are doctors in the States. One with not one, but two Phd’s in medicine. None of these people are dupes. None get there information from Rachel Maddow or Fox news. None are college students in their formative years as you are.

          To my knowledge 99% of them chose to be vaccinated.

          And you are so far off as usual. Of course you can battle viruses. Rabies, HIV and smallpox. In 1980, the World Health Assembly declared the world free of smallpox. But before that, humans battled smallpox for thousands of years, and the disease killed about 1 in 3 of those it infected. Modern medicines eradicated the disease.

          BTW, I was perfectly healthy. I got testicular cancer. This trope that being healthy means you won’t contract a deadly disease is fatally flawed. We modern medical discoveries to save your life.

          • hmuller July 26, 2021 at 10:22 pm #

            To my knowledge 99% of them chose to be vaccinated. – No12kiwi

            1) Just like Tekapo you love to quote the number 99. Everything is always 99%. Tekapo once solemnly stated that 99% of Wall Street contributions went to Trump. I referenced a source which gave the figures as 75% for Biden; 25% for Trump.

            But he kept using that 99% figure in situations where it was clearly inaccurate and hyperbolic, as do you.

            2) Like Tekapo you are a kiwi.

            3) Your writing style is Tekapo thru and thru

            I once read that J Edgar Hoover would go to certain select parties in drag and insist everyone pretend they didn’t recognize him. Do you expect to pull something similar here? LOL

            Perhaps your “talents” such as they are would be better practiced on a less discerning crowd.

            I’m telling you, Tekapo handlers, this guy is third rate. You’re not getting your money’s worth. But that bit about testicular cancer was a nice touch. Nurture audience rapport.

            I agree that the obsession with Tekapo here is weird. Why don’t people just drop it? Tekapo mentoins are silly ad homs.

            However, that doesn’t excuse your own ignorance and the very silly way you are assessing the wisdom of jabbing.
            First, how do you know what percentage of your highly educated test group are jabbed?
            Second, is that how you go about making all of your important decisions? Find out what the lemmings are doing and then follow suit?
            Third, the comparisons of the covid situ with smallpox is very old and moldy.

            But if you are happy with your jabbed state, fine!
            Just don’t bring uninformed opinions and expect to be taken seriously here because some educated people said such and such. Many have noted that it is precisely the highly educated who are most likely to fall in line with official narratives and least likely to think for themselves. They have the most to lose if the nonconformist narrative turns out to be true. This has certainly been my personal experience.

          C19 now seems to be just another flu. It will come back every year in a slightly different form. V1.0 vaccines are already proving insufficient hence the banning of vaccinated tourists, mask mandates for the vaccinated and talk of ‘boosters’.

      Yeh, religion actually does have a functionality, at least to keep the natives from becoming too restless.

      Europe had a full banquet of nature grounded religious traditions. Spiritually divided between Sky Gods (male) and Earth Gods (female).

      Christianity was a male desert Sky God sorta vibe.

      It hated the Mother Earth traditions in the Near East and stomped them out. As it spread through Europe it did the same but threw a bone to the feminine with Mother Mary.

      A sublimated version of Artemis.

      • hmuller July 27, 2021 at 11:15 am #

        Mohammed thought the Christian trinity consisted of Father, Son, and Mother Mary. That’s the way all the old religions worked.

        Does anyone even know with what gender the Holy Ghost identifies? Y’all better decide quickly before the Trannies claim Him.

      • Yohannon July 27, 2021 at 11:25 am #

        • hmuller July 27, 2021 at 12:06 pm #

          Virgin, whore, mother, crone, temptress, huntress – the feminine archetype manifested in multiple forms. One of my favorites is the temptress with the razor blade labial lips – ouch, watch out for that one!

          Since prehistoric times men noticed how women wanted to emasculate them, domesticate and tame them. And sex was their tool.

    Topol’s tell was resorting to calling the champions of early treatment “predators”. In doing so, he played the standard pay-op reversal trick. But it was so bald and Harris did not call him out so Topol was emboldened to reach even further, intimating that Corey and Weinstein are schizophrenic.

    Shame shame on Harris for allowing such crap to flow unquestioned.

    Topol? A tool at best. a fool at worst.

    or perhaps the otherway round

    or both at the same time.

    The predators are those who denied early treatment and censored or deplatformed those who do.

    These are the killers Topol is looking for.

    Topol is perhaps a schizophrenic. Harris simply shows himself up.

    Cowbell 81…I’m not knocking Mississippi, Alabama or any other “red” state. I’ve travelled extensively in both, and wouldn’t live in either. Just me I guess. Ever been to Gees Bend? Ever handed a poor kid a five spot on a street corner in downtown Selma and watch his eyes light up? It went to drugs, surely. Ever tried to navigate Dothan and its 24 traffic lights on US 231? Ever visited the king’s humble birthplace in Tupelo and then tried to have a picnic in a city park that reeked of sewage so badly…let’s just say it spoiled the appetite. Ever had a father-in-law born in Brookhaven or a college roommate who taught psychology at Mississippi State in Starkville for 40+ years? I didn’t think so. All I’m saying is that if Jimbo wants to give farming a whirl, he should take up residence in either…but maybe he prefers the challenge of upstate NY.

    Congressional Democrats introduced a bill Friday to rename more than 1,000 places in the US named with offensive language and racist slurs.

    Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Edward Markey, and Rep. Al Green introduced the bill along with 25 cosponsors in the House of Representatives, all Democrats.

    Lawmakers first introduced the bill last year with Rep. Deb Haaland, who now serves as the secretary of the interior as the first Native American cabinet secretary in US history.

    “We need to immediately stop honoring the ugly legacy of racism and bigotry, and that’s why I’m introducing the Reconciliation in Place Names Act with my colleagues,” Warren said in a statement.

    The bill would take aim at land units and geographic features, like forests, streams, and wilderness areas, with racist or bigoted names. It would create a process to review and rename places with inoffensive names. According to the statement from the lawmakers, questionable names have been identified for 1,441 federally recognized places.

    More than 600 places have the word “n—-,” a slur for Black people, in their name, according to a database from the US Geological Survey. In Oklahoma there is Dead N—- Spring, so-named because a deceased Black person was found there, according to the USGS.

    In New Mexico, there is a reservoir called W—— Tank, named with a slur for Mexican people living in the US. Nearly 800 results are returned by the USGS database when searching for the term “s—-,” an offensive word for Native American women.

    . GOT IT?

      This one appears to have the complexity of perspectives again. For example, for me personally, Elizabeth Warren and Al Green do in fact represent a very ugly legacy of racism and bigotry. The abject racial and cultural appropriation of both of these particular individuals is far outside the bounds of what should be considered decent behavior in polite societies. And the fact that Elizabeth Warren still works the native angle after that DNA test nighmare. Shameless. And yet that vile, ugly legacy of racism and bigotry simply has no shame.
