Questions du jour: Can the US government make itself even more untrustworthy? Has it become an enemy of the people? Just wondering. What would be worse, actually, is if we learn that American culture is untrustworthy, since politics is downstream of culture. It would be the equivalent writ large of a human personality at war with itself, unable to trust its own thoughts and actions.

Which perhaps explains the seeming psychosis raging through our society at the moment. The hallucinatory delusions of the day are exactly what you’d expect in the kind of personality undergoing a psychotic stress fracture, like the character Norman Bates in Hitchcock’s classic horror movie, Psycho. Poor Norman (or “Mister Bates,” as Hitch playfully had the other characters call him), developed the unfortunate habit of dressing up like his deceased Mother and slashing to death any other female for whom Mister Bates had impure thoughts. That was the 1960s version of the Transsexual Story Hour. We’ve come a long way, baby, since those innocent days.

In today’s day, another part of the collective personality is suddenly coming apart: science, or The Science, as the lingo has it these days. The Science is the system of hypotheses and proofs that normally plays the hero’s role in the task of determining reality, especially about things that are dangerous to mankind. The Science is supposedly behind what we know about the Covid-19 pandemic that has turned America, and much of the whole world, upside down. The Science has become so untrustworthy that an awful lot of people harbor suspicions that it has been running a number on them for the past year.

In the early going of the War on Covid-19, The Science told its soldiers, the doctors, to jam ventilators down patients’ throats. Whoops, that didn’t work so well. The Science told everybody to fuggeddabowt Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Vitamin D. The Science told New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to stash Covid-19 infected patients in nursing homes. The Science told everybody don’t bother with masks, then to definitely wear masks, then to maybe not wear masks, then to wear double masks, then to get vaccinated and wear masks. Golly, what to believe? Some people began to think that The Science was full of shit — which is, let’s face it, a dangerous thought, and something which, thank Gawd, Facebook, Twitter, and Google corrected for us.

One thing The Science remained adamant about for a whole year was that Covid-19 did not come from the Wuhan, China, Institute of Virology, where-and-to-which, it just happened, one of the US government’s Knights of The Science, Dr. Anthony Fauci, was funneling US taxpayer-funded grant money for the purpose of doing gain-of-function research on exotic bat corona viruses. Gosh, why would you even do that? (Doesn’t gain of function = make it more deadly?)

Supposedly to gain knowledge so that mankind will be prepared to fight the emergence of deadly bat viruses that somehow manage to sneak into the human population at some future date. These things can happen, you know. We’ve already tangled with bird flu and swine flu, so deadly bat flu could hardly be out of the question. Of course, one of the dangers, when you are playing with deadly respiratory viruses in a lab, is that lab workers might inhale a virus or two and become infected with a specimen that The Science has engineered to be especially troublesome… but that was very unlikely, maintained Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chief Science Advisor to the President.

Until this month when Dr. Fauci conceded to a Senate Committee that perhaps an investigation was warranted to find out if, perchance, Covid-19 escaped from the Wuhan lab — since, it turns out, the Wuhan lab was such a sloppy-ass operation that its level of safety was comparable to an ordinary dentist’s office. It also turns out, according to a Wall Street Journal report this week, that three Wuhan lab workers did indeed need to be hospitalized in November 2019, which was around the time the bug got loose among the civilians of Wuhan City, while Chinese tourists and workers were still winging around the world on airplanes by the tens of thousands — prompting one to wonder whether, also perchance, this was something that the CCP wanted to happen? ¿Quién sabe?

Now that “safe and effective” vaccines are available against Covid-19, The Science is urging everybody to take it, pronto, and the government is assisting in the distribution and deployment of vaccinations even to the very borderline of coercing citizens into it by turning the “vaccine hesitant” into social pariahs. No restaurant meals or ballgames for you Science-offending trolls! How’s that working? According to Dr. Fauci, and several other Knights of The Science, more than half of the people on their staffs got vaxed voluntarily. More than half! Now that’s a ringing vote of confidence in The Science!

Never mind that the vaxes being deployed got exempted from the normal years-long safety trials that The Science previously deemed essential for new vaccines, and received special liability protection against lawsuits, should something go awry with the jabs. And never mind the strange side-effects being reported, ranging from human reproductive problems to fatal blood clots. And never mind that apparently quite a few people who got the vax have also gotten Covid-19. And never mind that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has continued to flutter about her place of business wearing color-coordinated face masks, despite being vaxed and spending her time among colleagues who are all vaxed up.

Standing by on all that to see how the vaccine beta-testers make out over a somewhat longer haul…. Meanwhile, the next national reality test is underway in Arizona and just now gearing up in the state of Georgia, too. That would be Election Science, or the hypotheses and proofs of how ballots are cast and votes are tallied. These are also matters that our Knights of Public Management, such as Arizona Governor Doug Doucy and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, and their Secretaries of State Hobbs and Raffensperger, declare to be unworthy of investigation. And yet, investigations are apparently proceeding against their wishes and convictions, thanks to the Arizona State Senate and some Georgia judges. Standing by now to see how much more psychotic America’s collective persona grows as that nasty business creeps forward.

    Parks are closing to prevent overfishing due to the drought.

    In Colorado, the drought has become so bad that Colorado Parks and Wildlife Officials announced that they are closing a .6 mile of the Yampa River to prevent overfishing that would result from the drought. Because the water releases into the Yampa are “critically low” at only 20% of the average for this time of year and will likely soon fall below 15%.

    Jim don’t forget big tech is now in on the game and censoring any post or comment that is deemed vaccine hesitant!
    Facebook just had a whistle blower release some internal memos proving they are involved in the propaganda game big time.

    Some odd predictions have come true sooner than expected.

          .. could those Very Few who in fact rule us not make it any clearer?

          -Woke-ism is an elite project

          -Cancel culture is an elite project

          -Tranny Story-hour at your [formerly] family-riendly public library is an elite project

          But the larger elite project throughout the West is the slow immiseration
          of the Many, as they’re getting “restless” enough to be a concern to the
          Very Few. Hence “Covid”; hence the stuff above that wasn’t quite doing
          the job.

          This does not mean I think there is no novel virus; but it is, IMO, grossly overblown and primarily a pretext for the above Western, elite-benefiting Perestroika.

          Evidence to the contrary is welcome.

            “.. could those Very Few who in fact rule us not make it any clearer?…”

            Apparently for JHK and others, the 100 years + subversion*/cultural destruction efforts by the
            Globalist – pedo Rothschild Banksters and their
            domestic bolshevist/zionist ‘foot soldiers’ to both
            anesthetize, indoctrinate, and deceive the American
            goyyim has been successful beyond (((THEIR)))
            wildest dreams.

            *hat tip to the late Yuri Bezmenov, you did your
            best to try to wake and warn America about (((THEIR)))
            methods, plans and threat..but too many Americans
            were already dumbed down gratification narcissitic
            artifically prolonged children and didn’t either listen
            or care to listen to him.

            Well, like the disembodied voice from E.L.O.’s “Time”
            song said, “I have a message from another time…”.

            And for the below message, folks may want to don either
            a lobster bib or a bbq apron as some cultural sacred cows
            ARE going to be slaughtered in the effort!!!

            Just saying…..

            The Fall of America – The Financial Coup in 1913
            And What Happened Afterwards……

            Most people certainly DON’T know the history of “The BAD War” and the both outright and subtle influence exerted by the Globalist pedo – Rothschild Banksters and their created bolshevist and zionist foot soldiers and supporters and enablers, like one FDR, among others.

            Let’s just cut to the chase and be done with it!

            America WAS conquered in 1913 by the Globalist pedo Banksters from “The City of London” aka the jewish Rothschilds as well as their domestic agents and fellow “Hostile Elites”, especially the Rockefellers via the creation of their privately owned ‘Federal Reserve’ banking system fraud – read Griffen’s “The Creature from Jekyll Island” to understand how this happened and who was involved.

            Those Rothschilds and their fellow travelers, and both jewish bolshevists/zionist foot soldier cadres took their first steps in attempting to create a Talmudic based jewish globalist Rothschild owned and jewish bolshevist/zionist controlled world by conducting the coup against Christian Russia and the Czar and the Czar’s family in 1917..with that success (backed by the financial war chest of the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Armand Hammer and other aligned globalists). Their bolshevist virus exploded forth from conquered Russia in an attempt expand and invade every other nation across Europe that they could..they certainly had America firmly in their sights as an American version of the comintern was already in existence by that time.

            Lenin and ‘Trotsky’ (Lev Bronstein), responsible for the genocide of the Kulaks and other successful and independent minded Russians, using starvation and terror especially in the Ukraine. Why aren’t there any memorials to the Holodomor and it’s victims?..oh, that’s right..they were predominantly Christian and caucasian… Stalin of course continued the bolshevist orgy of terror, death and murder as did his successors including Khrushchev.

            Hungary under their agent, ‘Bela Kuhn’ (Moritz) fell..but was able to break free and regain her freedom with the help of Romania.

            Poland was assaulted; but able to defend herself from jewish bolshevism/zionism.

            Germany fell to the jewish bolshevists/zionists led by Rosa Luxemborg and others in 1921 but thankfully they were able to be roundly defeated by the patriotic German Freikorps and Rosa and her fellows were lawfully tried and properly and rightfully executed for their crimes.

            National Socialism arose in Germany as a legitimate and organic defensive measure and movement against the continued depredations both financially and culturally by the Rothschilds bolshevist/zionist agents that were operating openly in Germany..many unfortunately were able to flee to America, especially the founders of the Frankfurt School; where they quite joyfully set up shop once again with the support of domestic American (in name only) fellow bolshevists (with ample yet subtle support from FDR and fellow bolshevist/zionist enablers and supporters).

            Cultural Marxism, anyone?…..

            One of the first things that Adolf Hitler did was to end the crushing debt-based slavery that the Rothschilds and their ilk had saddled Germany and her people – he even went so far as to have one of the Rothschilds that was in Germany arrested for their financial crimes.

            Of course, Germany, under Hitler and others wise governance soon ended the stagnating severe unemployment and cultural degradation that was the hallmark of the jewish bolshevist/zionist controlled ‘Weimar Republic’ and while America suffered needlessly under the ‘Great Depression’ [purposefully created by the jewish Global Bankster owned ‘Federal Reserve’] and Europe suffering equally, Germany came to have the healthiest economy and truly happiest people..even Lloyd George of Great Britain came to personally see and comment on the economic and cultural miracles that Hitler and his National Socialist government had achieved and were creating.

            None of this however was sitting at all well with those who own and operate “The City of London”…a financially sovereign, prosperous and happy Germany couldn’t be allowed…if other nations and peoples looked too close at the National Socialist experiment, they might try to emulate it too and thereby break free from the the Rothschild’s ‘finance capitalism’ debt-based enslavement…and the talmudic supremacist Rothschilds just couldn’t allow that..not at al!!

            So, they contrived to destroy Germany and Adolf Hitler and the German People in a ‘second’ “World War”..a ‘Holy War’ as spewed forth in an insane rant on ABC radio by zionist bankster agent Samuel Untermeyer.

            The war was fought, their jewish bolshevist/zionist elements via communist Russia and elsewhere were the victors, they got their ‘international political control mechanism’ aka the U.N. into creation and made damn sure that slowly but surely such things like ‘nationalism’, ‘patriotism’ and ‘love of one’s own people and culture’ were slowly and repeatedly under quiet but unending assault via their jewish bolshevist/zionist Frankfurt School and other forms of education that could be quietly invaded by them while the stranglehold was completed on the media, both print, radio and film..especially their domination of ‘Holly-pedo-Weird’.

            Political control was accomplished by them via their front organizations like AIPAC, J-Street and others. Honest investigation, let alone legitimate criticism was deflected/downplayed by their front organizations like the ADL and SPLC and others.

            Congressmen, Senators and others have been forced to take a ‘loyalty oath’ to israel by AIPAC for decades; otherwise financial and social support could be turned off like water from a tap.

            In Texas, they held hurricane victims financially hostage unless those Texans signed a written pledge to not be critical in either word or print of the Rothschild’s terrorist corporate/military colony ‘israel’ – as a foreign enemy entity they made them sacrifice their right to freedom of speech in order to be eligible for ‘federal help’ with hurricane disaster relief.

            John McCain and Joe Liberman KNEW who was really in charge; it’s why they flew to “The City of London” to meet with the Rothschilds in a subtle bid to curry favor to be [s]elected as pResident and vp; obviously the Rothschilds DIDN’T think there was sufficient long term ‘Return on Investment’ and turned them down and sent them back here empty handed.

            Trump?…the Globalist Rothschilds have owned Trump since they saved him from personal bankruptcy that he created on his own in the 1990’s to the tune of over $1 billion. As Bankster attorney Alan Pomerantz said in a videotaped interview, “..We OWN him! – He works for us!!”

            So now, we arrive at where we find ourselves in ‘current year’ America. The congressmen, senators, judges and pResident DON’T work for any of the productive working class individuals – not at all!

            They are all nothing more than mere corporate employees of the jewish globalist banksters that call “The City of London” home. They say what ‘Boobus Americanus’ want to hear every 2 or 4 years; then they go right back to being the docile compliant workers for ‘Global Bankster Inc.’ as soon as peoples attention let alone eyes aren’t on them any more. They even offer up their progeny as cannon fodder to the goals and aims of the Globalist Rothschild Banksters aggressive warmongering..all while suffering the attack on 9/11 with the instigated controlled demolition of ALL three World Trade Center Towers via THEIR spy/assassination organization, ‘mossad’. Dr. Alan Sabrosky, a military veteran and jew has openly stated, “They [the israeli government] did it! – THEY did 9/11!!” Watch the Architect & Engineer’s documentary about 9/11 if you still doubt the truth of this.

            And ‘voting’ will NEVER make anything better..it’s just another ‘Kabuki Theater’ entertainment deception/deflection ploy to get ‘Boobus Americanus’ to bow down and grant them legitimacy to be financially if not physically enslaved again..and again…and again…

            There is no ‘left’ or ‘right’; again ALL politics is nothing more than a contrived Kabuki Puppet Theater put on every 2 to 4 years by the Uniparty that IS owned by the Globalist Banksters such as the Rothschilds and their related tribal ilk. Dr. Carroll Quigley, as one of their insiders actually spoke openly about what the excercise of politics really was for:

            “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies… is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”
            — Dr. Carroll Quigley, “Tragedy and Hope”

            The political Uniparty Kabuki Puppet Theater is used to give generally gullible Americans the illusion that they have an actual say ‘in how things are run/decided in America’ and/or that the people that they [s]elect are their ‘representatives’ that ‘work for them/represent them and their interests’. It’s all no more real than any ‘outcome decided in advance’ wrestling match..the WCW/ECW or ‘Cage Match’ played out/delivered in the national arena to also entertain them…

            And also unbeknownst to the rubes, pigeons, marks, oops sorry, “voters” the real purpose of the political Kabuki Puppet Theater is to subtly reinforce the imagined legitimacy of the controlling parasite class via THEIR corporate employees (the [s]elected ‘representatives’) as they once again anesthetize the host for continued feeding, deceive, distract, misdirect and play divide and conquer courtesy of tawdry yet overpriced colorful bunting and really crappy canned music.

            Northern Yankee Carpetbaggers could at least be openly seen and understood for what they were….

            The species of Boobus Hu-Lemmings Americanus however continue to believe both in the contrived criminal fraud known as the ‘constitution’ (read either Kenneth Royce’s “Hologram of Liberty” or Lysander Spooner’s writings on the subject to understand this) and the near religious sanctity of “the political process”, especially “voting”..so, the regularly trotted out controlled Kabuki Puppet Theater is guaranteed to continue to keep them docile, deceived, entertained and indoctrinated and fleeced/sacrificed as cannon fodder to the satisfaction and $$$profit$$$ of the Globalist Bankster class.

            As the late George Carlin said, “It’s a BIG Club, and you and I AREN’T in it!!”

            Now, knowing and understanding this,..doesn’t it make you feel all warm and fuzzy that the jewish Globalist Banksters and their bolshevist/zionist control elements WON ‘The BAD War’?….

            Where would you be if ‘commades’ AOC, Pilosi, Biden, Nadler, Scheumer, Finestein, McConnell and other ‘corporate employee’ parasite enablers weren’t around to guide and lead you?….

            There, all done!!!
            You can now take off those thoroughly drenched
            lobster bibs and bbq aprons and virtually deposit
            them in the nearest trash dumpster.

            Be free of the Globalist juden’s indoctrination/lies – deceit
            and see them for what they are, whether they’re pushing
            their (((Frankfurt School))) bolshevik ‘cancel -culture’ or their world depopulation ‘Stupid -1984’s REAL!! – YOU NEED OUR VAXX TO LIVE/WORK!!’ propaganda.

            And yes, both Gates and Fauci ARE (((THEIR))) ‘useful
            idiots’!!

    imagine if a white celeb refused blacks at work.

    SZA is opening up why she turned down a magazine cover story after a publication allegedly refused to hire a Black photographer.

    The “Good Days” singer, 31, said Tuesday on Twitter, “I requested a black photographer for a cover n the mag told me no lol its 2021.. and almost Juneteenth . Respectfully I can’t do it.”

    After fans asked SZA to name the publication, the star said in a follow-up tweet, “Das not my vibe but there’s TOO many elite black creatives rn to not allow it.

    Good morning.

    I kept hearing that the COVID narrative was starting to crumble, now I am finally seeing signs this may be so.

    All of these new ‘revelations’ about the ventilators, the sick lab workers, the lack of any benefit to wearing masks, etc. were known in March 2020.

    It seems to be a hatred of Donald Trump that kept most of the US media from showing any curiosity about what they were being told.

    Here’s a link to the Market Ticker guy that lats out the questions that need to be asked. Many of the issues are raised above.

      Being in San Diego we have a huge straight off the jet from China crowd and I suspect I had Covid early in February 2020.
      Worst damn cold I have ever had took me out for a week and this is being confirmed by recent news.
      Very close to wandering in to see if my suspicion is correct.

      Another side bar contrary to the narrative of you must get the vaccine many of the so called experts are now saying if you had covid and got over it your body will have the antibodies for decades so no need to get the jab.
      Of course companies like Pfizer have a vested interest in everyone getting stuck in the arm.
      Rumor has it they are the ones that pushed to have the competition J&J vaccine halted. This of course backfired when many people decided if one is bad they are all probably bad and the roll out stalled big time.

      • MaryV May 28, 2021 at 10:21 am #

        Doesn’t it seem curious to you that they are suddenly claiming the vaccine does your laundry and pays your mortgage and keeps you from ever having any troubles in life again?

        I exaggerate to make a point. They have hit a wall of resistance against the vaccines and they need permanent buy-in.

        So now even though LAST month they claimed you’d need one every 6 months for eternity, now just 2 and you’re good to go, especially if you’ve had the virus. What about if you were exposed to it? Everyone was. Still the fatality rate at its nadir in May or June 2020 was less than 1 percent.

        Still they kept the delusions going by inventing ‘cases’ and that worked for a few months ’til the vaccines could take over.

        The whole thing has been a fiasco and a the biggest hoax in recorded history.

          MaryV

          I watch the continuing incidence of cases. The vaxx seems to be highly effective at stopping the disease and reducing its impact on folks. I think from watching state to State registers that the disease is continuing to hit the 50% that have decided not to be jabbed. No surge, hopefully but a level low rate of new infections.

          Again, the CDC is lacking. No info on how much of the current new cases load is recurrence, or post vaxx occurrences. So far, no new case surges since the vaxx started. So far.

          If a new surge occurs with 50% of the folks vaccinated, Covid wins, we cannot stop it.

            JohnAZ, like many others (most at this point, I suspect), nothing you can say would convince me to take their injections. Nothing is known about long-term effects and I judge it to be too risky.

          • Night Owl May 28, 2021 at 2:16 pm #

            Folks like JohnAZ are brainwashed. Nothing will get through.

            I do not say that lightly.

            In the latest Sitzung of the Corona-Ausschuss committee here in Germany, they had a guy on England who has a stash of government documents, including correspondence of major officials in which they discuss employing psychologists to create pro-vaxx propaganda.

            The information did not shock me, as I know they do this, but it still seems surreal when you see how organized this operation is.

            Our “cases” and tests have almost gone to naught (8 today and no deaths for a week) and conditions have been open for more than a month. Mask wearing is below 20%–stores, bars, etc. I wear a mask at work b/c I have always worn a mask and it is now required by the Dental Board and I would not like to fight the lawsuit if someone on my staff gave a patient a bad case of Covid.

            We had two peaks of hospital stress–mild last summer and more concerning in December/Jan. Since then cases and deaths have been falling. Our county is way below 50% for vaccination–although those of us over 65 are probably at 70%. Should we be worried that the virus will come round again? I am prepared to run the experiment and compare the vaxxed and non-vaxxed. Freedom’s the watchword.

            I am planning a trip to Germany in July and do not intend to show my vaccine status. If they lock me up with a positive test when I get there–I will re-consider. I think it important not to mandate vaccine passports. Strangely, in the past, it hasn’t bothered me. I got Yellow Fever vaccines and papers in 1967 and 1997 to travel where the disease was endemic. Seemed prudent. I gave my daughter toxic anti-malarial meds when she went to SA and Botswana. I have never been a TSA fan and more “Papers please” hurdles are impertinent. I used to fight the SS# fight but that is lost. Nobody cares about your reputation, they care about your SS#’s reputation.

            My card playing group(20) has been meeting in person for 2 months and all are vaccinated with no obvious problems. None of us are worried about fertility issues but my children? They have made their own decision.

            Hoax is too strong a word for the conditions we live under. How the virus came to be is an as yet untold story. It may remain so if everyone just wants to know what they already know. It is obvious the disease is hyped to get people to take the shot. It doesn’t mean the vaccine is worse than the disease but it does mean there is a backstory that is not being shared. I am in complete support of the brave people that want to take on the virus with natural immunity.

            I asked my doctor in June 2020 what their tx protocol for covid was. They said Tylenol until you can’t breathe and then go to the ER. There was no treatment. I fired them immediately–got my own drugs and oxygen and told my wife if I can’t beat it without a respirator–you know where the will is.

            I have seen hundreds of patients since May of last year. Our office has had 3 exposures–no positive cases. I have 20 year old staff and 80 year old patients but there will be no mandates in my office for anyone to have the vaccine. If the vaccine percentage gets high enough–it is more likely to be made mandatory. That is the reason for the push. Control of all desired venues. The permission society. Financial control with digital currency is also in play.

            Perhaps a few here have read Dan Brown’s Inferno (2010). A virus released by a billionaire to randomly sterilize 1/3 of the population. It remains interesting to contemplate all the games that people play.

          • Night Owl May 28, 2021 at 3:55 pm #

            Rocket, if you are coming to Germany in July, you will be required to not only disclose your status, but you will have to have a test if you have not taken the poison.

            They are in the process of unrolling vaxx passports here. The vaccine is not required to travel at this point (but the WEF psychopaths are pushing hard), but I have no doubt it will be unless this is turned around. (They claim it won’t, but they have lied every step of the way to get compliance).

            That vaxx passport is also not a passport, it is an ID that contains a digital wallet as the psychos like to call it, that will contain all kinds of personal information about you. Just as the chart at the WEF Website shows. ID2020 is here.

            Enjoy what may be your last trip to a Germany that mildly resembles the Federal Republic it once was.

            After 11 hr flight this Monday my mask was as if I had dropped it into Kim Chi jar. I had never worn a mask outdoors and always waited to the last millisecond before entering the store to put it on.
            Lufthansa crew had provided us with surgical masks that have a plenty of draft at the edges so it helped a little. Night flight helped too for cheat, since all crew members had a very sharp eye.

            I was watching that too. One bit that caught my attention was the govt whistleblower who said they ahd been talking about killing off medium and small busineses. he also said that it comes ultimately from the banks and those with the money. (If Akmofo is reading: off you go, boy.) The Germans agreed (they have had Ernst Wolff on saying this) but then they went on to bring up the Holocaust. They still do not quite get it, at least not the way I get it.

            They agreed about China. Maybe there had been an incident at the Wuhan lab as they were trying to culture enhanced flu strains but that does not matter because there is nothing there. They agreed that it was a diversionary tactic because (they agreed) people were starting to wake up to what is happening (I would like to think so but are they?) and they were just throwing Faucci under the bus and deflecting anger onto China. I think Denis Rancourt would agree too. I think he argues that the Chinese found themselves ina tricky situation last year and did all those things they are supposed to have done as PR damage limitation.

            If there were a clear, mainstream definition of a Covid ™ "case" you might have a point. But there [pointedly] isn't, and so you don't.
            Muddying the waters is the corporo-media's job du jour.

            Sean, indeed.

            Wuhan is of no consequence. The people behind the Great Reset (World Economic Forum/DAVOS) are the ones behind the Covid Hoax. The Wuhan story is a distraction.

            The so-called pandemic is a creation that is entirely based on the Drosten modified PCR test, which creates false positives, creating “cases” that the media has used to instill fear to drive the fraud and arrive at the final goal of forced vaccination, a vaxx ID, and total population control.

            This exact scenario has been laid out by medical, legal, and political insiders at Corona Ausschuss again and agian, and it is beyond apparent at this point.

          I agree, Mary. The never ending train of lies, exaggerations, contradictions, and ongoing manipulation and bullying of the general public has caused me to conclude that the whole thing has been an enormous hoax.

          By hoax, I don’t mean that the virus is not real, only that the impact has been exaggerated and information about the virus, treatments, masks, etc have all proven to be exceptionally unreliable due to unceasing dishonesty by governments, the media, and medical professionals.

          POLITICS infected this “pandemic” far more rapidly and completely than the virus infected the global population. There are too many elites whose agendas are threatened by how this all pans out, and so the manipulation continues.

          I continue to refuse the jab, as does my girlfriend, my elderly mother, and my sister and her entire family. We refuse to be guinea pigs in the great experiment of 2021.

        I stated at this site, early in 2020, that the virus had already been here around Christmas through February, and I was accused of being dismissive of all the people fighting for their very lives ON VENTILATORS.

        Yes, people had what they described as a very bad cold or something similar to the flu, and for some it lingered as long as three weeks.

        • MaryV May 28, 2021 at 1:55 pm #

          I had a cold that turned into bronchitis probably 30 years ago. But I was a smoker, and didn’t really take care of my health as I did more and more as I aged.

          Once I cleaned up my act, no more flu, colds or bronchitis. Not even allergies either.

          People don’t understand this though. They want a magic pill. That’s why they love the concept of a vaccine that ‘fixes’ you.

        I’m struggling with the obvious pecking order of jabs.

        Sputnik and Sinovac are non-starters in the West.

        J&J and AstraZenca are the lowest acceptable tier in the West.

        Then, mRNA from Moderna, its first profitable product ever.

        Finally, there is Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA, always positioned as the King of Jabs, the one jab to rule them all!

        Why is this so?

        Note BioNTech is German, and the made up diagnostic criteria around the PCR process was from the German quack Drosten.

        • Yohannon May 28, 2021 at 12:12 pm #

            Thirdrail, Drosten also appears to have faked his credentials. Rainer Fuellmich mentioned recently that no one can locate his doctoral thesis, and that when they called the U. of Frankfurt to check his records, they had no record of him receiving a PhD.

            The cases are very similar to those of several other WEF-promoted politicians here in Germany, including the Green candidate Annalena Baerbock, who was recently caught lying about her academic history.

        • Night Owl May 28, 2021 at 2:18 pm #

          It is likely the most dangerous. Here in Germany, one of the key psychopaths driving the push to vaccinate kids claims that they can only be vaccinated with BioNTech/Pfizer.

            Interesting, but a bit soft-serve. I have listened to enough experts over at Corona-Ausschuss that it has become evident that the injuries/shedding etc. are intentional.

            I have little doubt at this point that the shot is far more dangerous than whatever Covid is, and it is likely rebranded flu.

          • Islander May 29, 2021 at 10:18 pm #

            Night Owl:

            Glad that someone else is listening to the Corona-Ausschuss presentations.

            We own Reiner Fuellmich a huge debt of gratitude for pursuing this elusive criminal: The Shadow behind this monstrous international crime.

            I think Gerrish has it, though, when pointing to a combo of the City and intelligence services, with connivance of media.

            I also think that that locus as the center of the planning makes sense (and, come to think of it, the City is kind of like the Vatican—under no one’s jurisdiction). Even the various statistical tricks to up-play “test” and “death” results and then “downplay” connections between the jabs and adverse reactions appear to have been worked out beforehand and disseminated or worked out together: the similarity between methodologies used in the UK, the USA, and Germany cannot be a coincidence. I don’t know specifically about other countries.

          • Night Owl May 30, 2021 at 5:09 am #

            Islander, they are quite nervous about the Stiftung Corona-Auschuss. The group is not only involved with research and legal action with the medical and legal communities, but they have also founded a political party here in Germany: Die Basis.

            I agree that Mr. Gerrish did an excellent job of providing a macro perspective on who is working with who in order to execute the Corona plan.

        The actual report was if you got Covid and the vaxxes you are probably immune for life. Hopefully!

        Only the vaxxes gives a least a year immunity and boosters may be needed.

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder May 28, 2021 at 12:01 pm #

          JohnAZ, as you are a member of the age group that should be more concerned about catching seasonal viruses, I understand why you got the shot. My folks did as well.

          I also understand that as a willing test subject you now naturally feel the need to justify the gamble of taking the shot, as of course you don’t want to be wrong. No one does when their health is in the balance.

          But it does surprise me, as open as your eyes seem to be about media/government manipulation and the divide & conquer strategies employed by both, that you don’t question the “case numbers” and “surges” as potential (or in some cases obvious) propaganda, and not science.

          The case numbers are whatever they want to say they are, and have been admitted by the CDC to be about 94% faulty diagnoses, Surges always seem to happen when public opinion is waning (as we will see again this fall during the standard flu season, especially if there is more pushback and large gatherings take place to flout the medical narrative…which will be predictably called super-spreader events).

          Please feel free to believe what you want to, but understand that the lines have pretty much been drawn.

          Those that wanted it already got it. Those that didn’t want it won’t be convinced to do so at this point. Those on both sides of the issue have their reasons, but it’s also clear that neither side is flexible on this.

            Mr M

            In fairness, I didn’t see JohnAZ trying to persuade anyone to take anything. He merely corrected something benr said about a report he (benr) cited. JAZ even added ‘Hopefully!’, which doesn’t suggest to me that he’s swallowing everything unquestioned.

            I agree with you that both ‘sides’ are entrenched.

            I don’t consider myself to be on a side, despite having taken one of the vaxxes, a decision I made in awareness of (a) the lack of knowledge about hypothetical long-term effects, (b) the inevitable and predicted occurrence of adverse reactions and (c) my possible personal risks from the disease itself (like your folks).

            I have suggested to both my daughters that they should not feel obliged to be vaccinated and that their risk from the disease is minimal to negligible. Although one does have a risk factor in relation to the disease, so imagine how I’d feel if she didn’t get vaccinated, following my suggestion, and was unlucky enough to get seriously ill from the disease (recall that blood clots in people with Covid19 are 100 times more prevalent than in the general population).

            I think my other daughter (the one who travels a lot) thinks I’ve joined the ranks of the conspiracy theorists. Imagine THAT!! 🙂

            Mr Mango, your thoughts on this matter are similar to mine. And I like your calm and humane, yet rational way of presenting them to others who have opted to get vaxxed. It’s a sad thing sometimes finding other comments like “you’re an idiot, now you’re gonna die, why did you do it”. I dislike that attitude. We all decide to act one way or another for our own reasons, and if John, GA and others went one way and we another, what’s the point of killing friendship and good conversation by that useless, bitter, angry “now you’re gonna die”.

            In any case, we don’t know. They don’t know either. Nobody knows what’s going on for sure. It’s nacht und nebel out there, terra incognita. They may be right, we may be wrong. They follow their gut, and we do the same. It’s a coin toss.

            In my old dojo, our instructor said that he drank eight 8-oz glasses of water a day, furthermore, he said it helped with his stools. I remarked TMI. That got a snicker from the class but then I was out 3 months later. Recently I learned that he died 5 years ago from ALS.

            In all fairness, the two probably weren’t related. But just goes to show, experts are wrong all the time. And just because someone is an expert in one thing, doesn’t mean they have any authority in another. And in many cases, the “expert” in something is found blindingly wrong in that very thing in which they claim expertise!

      The total takeover of the Uniparty is no where more indicated than the Fed reaction to Covid.

      Instead of a really bad flu, especially among the elderly, that could have been minimized by masks at close quarters only, with everything left open. Wait for the vaccine and allow people to make decisions whether to take the vaccine. Full CDC, FDA and NIH surveillance with bipartisan oversight by Congress.

      Trump, Biden? Both have totally screwed this up. The big winner of Covid is not Big Pharma, it is the Deep State. The people of the US have really taken it in the butt over this fiasco. Who goofed, they did.

      No.1 disingenuous move, the appointment of Fauci last year.

      • JohnAZ May 28, 2021 at 10:37 am #

        A huge question

        What if?

        The Chinese are found guilty of covering up the origin of Covid and then enabling it to spread over the world. So?

        Why? Why did they do it this time? Lots of Bird flu, Swine flu, SARS1, MERS. They have killed millions of chickens to stop Bird Flu. Why no reaction to Covid?

        The possibilities are damning. Biological warfare agent? NWO power enhancement? CCP embarrassment? What embarrassment? Fear of losing Wuhan lab? Was Fauci directly involved? I remember Faici and Birx being assigned by Pence as the leader of the onset. Pence and Birx were both sidelined and we are still stuck with Fauci.

        Is it too late to stop the total domination of the NWO and their Progressive soldiers in the US. So far, I am unimpressed with the conservative response to the Uniparty takeover. Many tax and spend bills are coming up for votes in the next few weeks. We shall see.

        Why did Biden reverse positions on investigating China’s role?

          Hmm, why do you care do you really think that you are going to change it, got news for you should have done that years ago when you might’ve had a chance, been looking for the flu number this year, but they seem to be lacking but they did have a good run on getting the people to lock themselves down for weeks at a time and the next one will be a real test to see just how well the programmed people will respond, my bet is they will do just as they are told.

      In the meantime the walls are closing in on the FBI, “President” Biden and Hunter Biden.

      Turns out that Hunter’s laptop he dropped off at a Delaware repair shop is NOT a Russian conspiracy as we were assured prior to the 2020 election! It actually DOES belong to Hunter and a particular email has been discovered detailing a D.C. dinner then VP Biden attended with Hunter and his shady Russian and Ukrainian business partners.

      This was in 2015.

      Of course all the various videos of Joe Biden in 2019 and 2020 denying he knew anything about ANY of Hunter’s business dealings is obviously a lie.

      Not an accidental lie. A deliberate lie.

      Miranda Devine from The New York Post has a new book coming out all about this.

      Will Congress move to impeach Joe Biden?

      What was good for Trump is good for Biden.

      For those occasions where the Overlords demand and enforce the wearing of a muzzle— like on airline flights —it is important that you learn to properly fit it. The surgical mask is an excellent candidate since it has the correct “medical” image and does absolutely nothing to prevent transmission of the Corvid virus.

      The advantage of of the surgical style mask is that it has a weak reinforcement on the top edge. By judicially bending it up after it rests on the nose you can create a clear air passage so that you will not be adversely affected by reduced oxygen supply and high CO2 saturation. Mask Natzis could give a damn as long as you are “masked” so they will not harass you.

      Of course such measures are temporary. The only long term solution is for the states who are still clinging to Liberty like Montana to join with Greater Texas and form a new Union.— one that is free from failed states like California, Oregon, and New York. .

    Somehow old Trump is still making them newsy cycles.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/yankee-stadium-drama-trump-won-banner-unfurled-booed-and-then-confiscated/ar-AAKu7DL?ocid=msedgdhp

    So they say Trump won and in one audit it shows roughly 3/4’s of Republican votes for President were not counted because of an odd fold placed exactly where it needed to be to cause the voting machine not to see the marked space.
    Some would say this was just an accident nothing to see here move along they would also be the ones that have been wrong on just about every opinion dealing with common sense and current day politics.

    Trump won but lost Biden lost but won and most of all the American people lost bigly with demented Joe Biden’s unsteady hand on the tiller.
    Has America ever had a worse leader even feckless Jimmy Carter now looks better.
    Ford had more personality!
    The nuts are running the asylum and it shows all across our country as violent crime sky rockets and the illegal aliens are out everywhere.
    The Democrats don’t have a clue how to turn this around and most of them admit openly they want to burn the system to the ground.

      Former president Donald Trump, of course, unlike the Yankees Thursday night, lost his second contest, becoming a single-term president. There were boos from the crowd assembled in the Bronx, audible in the multiple videos of the unfurling posted to social media. In one clip, from Sports Illustrated’s Max Goodman, the banner is snatched up by security, resulting in cheers.

      According to the New York Post, two men were escorted from the stadium after that, with one of them in handcuffs. The Athletic’s Yankees reporter Lindsey Adler confirmed cheers as the men were escorted out.

      Handcuffs? For Free Speech? The authour never mentions why, on God’s Green Earth, those perpetrators of Free Speech were handcuffed and, instead, leaves the reader with the impression that perhaps, “Hand-cuffin’s too Good fer ’em!”

      • Rulo Deschamps May 29, 2021 at 2:11 pm #

        Tekapo, is there a motive, cause or reason behind calling a fellow poster a sore loser bony? A good poster, too. I’m wondering, is there a chance you never engage in a respectful rational go and forth about philosophical issues and go instead for the jugular of the easy name-calling?

        Is it true what they say? That some lost souls get paid to troll forums deemed “incorrect” and disrupt meaningful conversations with class clown techniques, easy ad-homs, petty insults and such, collect “incorrect” comments and so on?

        Not about your liberal MS worldview or secure wealthy retirement. Not at all about that. I can present my points, you yours, no problem. It’s about the rather dumb way you have of disrupting normal conversation among posters.

        Do you do it for a living? I know if you were you wouldn’t admit it, or would you? Because if nobody’s paying you for results, then it’s rather sad you spend perfectly good hours trying to get others riled up instead of listening and learning.

        So whether you’re being paid or not, your attitude is not good; you’d look less of a fool if you lied to us, the peanut gallery, that you’re a high placed cyber asset or something. Why do you keep coming back under different handles, anyway? I’d like to know that, too. If I’d get fired I’d get the point and fuck off. Your reasons for this special attraction to this forum with which you disagree anyway?

          “Sore loser bony” has a certain ring to it, eh?

          And I think if you checked the record of the last x months Rulo – you would find your “good poster” has used far far worse terms of abuse in respect of me. He is quite intolerant of “the voter” actually exercising their free choice – if they’re not in lockstep with OrangeMan, that is. Just saying.

    This morning I came across an NBC story where a Tennessee woman was arrested for driving thru a Jab clinic yelling: don’t take the jab. People are starting to wakeup to the fraud which is why we are seeing Lotteries and expensive gifts being given away for Jab recipients.

    In Hong Kong Jab recipients are being entered into a lottery drawing for a $1.4 apartment if they have had two jabs. The reason being is that they have a low jab rate. Why? Because the kill rate for these Covid vaccine/jabs are at least 1,000 times higher than a regular flu vaccine.

    If you are lucky the Jab kills you. If you are unlucky it could incapacitate or injure you. Then you have to deal with all the medical bills and can’t sue the vaccine makers. And the MSM and Social Media are covering this all up like it’s not a problem or nonexistent.

    Some of the ongoing severe side effects from these so-called bullshit vaccines:

    Paralysis, Stroke, Spinal Inflammation, Heart Inflammation, Death

    • MaryV May 28, 2021 at 10:32 am #

      Well said, Rodster. You’re spot on.

            Yes – it was a perfect Mob shakedown and he definitely should have been impeached on the matter, but spineless Republican Senators just went boot-licking. I bet they wish they DID impeach him when they had the chance.

            Has been completely and utterly debunked, and you know it. Biden was seeking the removal of a corrupt prosecutor who was NOT looking at Burisma. As I say – totally debunked.

      ‘Vax’ death rate on CDC VAERS is ~4800 in the US as of end April and counting. And that’s the ‘official’ rate that could reasonably be doubled. And they took seldane ( an antihistamine) off the market after six (6) deaths when combined with erthyromycin !!!

    Apparently, so far the GA election fraud investigation has shown that in Fulton County, 30K of 147K mail-in ballots were on a different kind of paper, and mysteriously appeared to be machine marked and had no fold creases.

    Seems odd for a ballot that had to be mailed out or mailed back in, or both.

    Additionally, a batch of 950 military ballots were all for Biden – not one for Trump.

    Just more baseless claims and should not be considered evidence of willful, criminal election fraud.

    The National Psychosis is alive and well, indeed. Another excellent piece by our esteemed host. Thank you, James.

    “Questions du jour: Can the US government make itself even more untrustworthy? Has it become an enemy of the people?”

    It is, and I think it might actually have a way to go before enough people catch on. My concern is that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Just watched something someone posted in the previous article’s comment section, some YouTube influencer man in make-up, that I’ve never heard of, but who managed to wrangle an interview with the president and Dr. Fauxi, who were staged in the Oval Office at matching desks, making it appear they are on par with each other status-wise. Since the Jo Jo Magoo administration likes messing with deep fakes or doctored photos and video, and we know there are no mistakes with this crew, what’s up with that?

    Are they trying to prepare us for the big reveal that Jo Jo takes his orders from the Davos crew, WHO and Big Pharma? It’s obvious that the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex calls all the shots now.

    And, even though it was revealed that Fauxi doesn’t have to answer for his crimes, despite them being exposed. Just like Jo Jo himself, and his entire party heads, which are obviously directed by the intelligence agencies.

    So we have the deep state + Big Pharma in charge. All unelected, of course.

    What could possibly go wrong?

      A long time ago, the Jewish part of nations found out that to control the actions of a nation they needed to control two things, the money flow, banks and the lenders, and the communication systems. That knowledge has now spread in the US to the entire Deep State. The Jewish groups, both globally and in the US are still in the vanguard but here at least it is much bigger than the Jewish faction.

      I do not believe that Democrat = Jew, but maybe that Jew = Democrat.

            Sorry folks. The Deep State has owned the USA for quite some time.

            It’s just that, like a lunar eclipse, the interests of the deep state and middle America somewhat aligned from 1945-1963.

            If you have not done so, everyone commenting here needs to see the movie “The Matrix”.

            It’s sci-fi, far-fetched, but the theme of control by “the machine” and the use of illusion vs. actuality are excellently portrayed.

            In our “Matrix” of Earth/America/ (your state) / (your town):

            1. This space of JHK’s writings and many of the comments here reflect our ACTUALITY, and where we really are, and hence where we probably are going. There are others with different perspectives (another angle of looking at an object, or another view of a situation) who also reflect actuality, for example Dmitry Orlov, or Dr. Tim Morgan (the podcast–excellent).

            2. The ILLUSION is what you see on the MSN, or even even intelligent, thoughtful pundits, people who can’t access the cable news or other MSN outlets. These people point out that things are not as the appear. Yet they also, to a large extent live in the illusion of limitless growth and cheap energy.

            As far as the Deep State is concerned, an excellent, concise and even darkly entertaining read is Mike Lofgren’s book… “The Deep State”, which shows how the Deep State really runs things. It came out in 2016, before Trump was the GOP nominee, but when it appeared he very well might be–and Lofgren discusses this in his preface, and notes that widespread revulsion with the way things are, and the front men/women of the Deep State had made Trump so popular, and how the Deep State dreaded the prospect of him being nominee, let alone Pres…

            Perhaps the plandemic is a dress rehearsal for the global warming crisis, and the “lessons learned” from the public’s reaction will be factored in as we transition to more “Green” future, to reduce public resistance.

            Perhaps the shots are really time bombs waiting to go off in a 2, 5, or 10 years, to cull the herd, in the “rich countries”–not just due to resource constraints, but also demographic pressure—to reduce the proportion of ‘non-productive’ people over 65 say.

            It’s one thing to read about something plausible in 2006 and think “yeah, I can see that” and other to look around in 2020/21 and say “wow, I AM slowly seeing that crystallize–and in ways that had not occurred to me”

        Read something interesting about usury.
        For the sake of understanding I will provide one definition of usury.

        Usury is the practice of making unethical or immoral monetary loans that unfairly enrich the lender. The term may be used in a moral sense—condemning, taking advantage of others’ misfortunes—or in a legal sense, where an interest rate is charged in excess of the maximum rate that is allowed by law. A loan may be considered usurious because of excessive or abusive interest rates or other factors defined by a nation’s laws. Someone who practices usury can be called an usurer, but in contemporary English may be called a loan shark.

        It is not allowed in both Christianity and Islam but no such proscription in the Jewish religion.

        As we can see from current day dealings with banks they love getting no interest money from the federal reserve and charging the people with interest rate that can go up to 33%.
        Borrow $1,000. and pay the minimum it will take you eight years to pay the loan off and far exceed what you borrowed.

        Beginning to think the western governments should look much closer at this practice.

        • Blackbird May 29, 2021 at 6:43 pm #

          Western plutocracies have looked at usury. They like it! Best way to disempower the people and turn them into submissive wage slaves. Eventually it destroys the economy and the nation it has been parasitizing, but once you’ve usurped all the real wealth – who cares?!

          Is this just another anti-Semitic rant (there are an awful lot of them on here) – or are you making a different point?

          Anybody who borrows money at 33% is not playing with a full deck. Even the most loan-shark big-bank credit cards aren’t that high.

          But here’s an idea to get used to – live within your means. Other than a mortgage for a house, and just maybe a low-interest loan for a vehicle, no-one should ever get into any credit-card or loan-shark territory. YMMV

            I don’t have an anti Semitic point for the most part I have no beef with Jews.

    A John Hopkins professor has criticized the CDC as being “the most slow. reactionary, political CDC in American history”, and actualy says we should ignore the CDC guidance.

    It’s extraordinary that more adults haven’t reached this conclusion themselves.

    I’m actually seeing people in the news business in New York freaking out over the lifted mask mandates. What good is any reporting coming from such imbeciles?

    Dr. Marty Makary, the Johns Hopkins professor, also states that over half of Americans have immunity to the virus by now.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/johns-hopkins-prof-half-americans-have-natural-immunity-dismissing-it-biggest-failure

    When the WHO altered the definition of herd immunity to suit Big Pharma, that should have raised alarm bells immediately.

      • Blackbird May 28, 2021 at 4:46 pm #

        No, Not_George, I do not think they exist in sufficient number. Almost nobody, in the US, that I know, born after WWII, is what I would consider an adult. Myself included.

      This continues to be astounding to me as well.

      I was onto the hoax in March 2020!

      It just kept getting more and more implausible and crazy. I’m surprised I have survived with my sanity (mostly) intact.

      I would be willing to bet that almost everyone reached herd immunity back in June 2020. That’s because it’s how viruses always work, they move through a community in around 70 days. In and out. Of course the PTB thought they could string it out by forcing lockdowns and school closures. Early on, Dr. Ioannidis from Stanford said this was a terrible idea, and he and other doctors and epidemiologists were scoffed at and called loonies, all so the PTB could continue the hoax.

      Every decision the directors of this fiasco, Trump included, have made, have been against our better interests and our safety. Every. Single. One.

      They should all go to prison. But I know there is no chance of that.

        “They should all go to prison. But I know there is no chance of that.” ~ Mary

        You’re right Mary. This could be applicable to every con game, hustle & racket that’s being run on us every day – day in and day out.

        Two reasons:

        We’re delusional – holding on to the belief that we live under the rule of law.

        We’re a nation of keyboard warriors.

        Every man signing the Declaration of Independence well-knew their fate had the American Revolution failed – swinging from a rope.

        Point being, nary a revolution existed where someone wasn’t willing to give their life for the cause. We don’t have that commitment – so we remain enslaved.

        The tree needs to be watered. Soon.

          Well said, Ron. Trump didn’t have the stones. He still wants to be a “Winner” is the system as it is. His Revolution ultimately depended on leaving or overturning the System – and that meant utter personal ruin if he failed. So he cucked.

            But I think I understand what you are getting at. To reach the future we need warriors, ready to blaze a path to a future worth living in, and if necessary, to die in the attempt. I wouldn’t spend a whole lot of time looking in the military or law enforcement for the next Daniel Boone.

          As Dr. D at TAE is fond of saying, “Make me!” is probably all it takes. As for me, passive-aggressive, it’s more like “Aw, shucks. My appointment was today? I forgot, can I reschedule?”

            Blackbird – I tend to agree, but hold out hope and an “all things are possible” mentality for my sons, 17 & 18 – tomorrow’s young lions.

            Got a call from the High School principal about the older one – refusing to wear a mask – principal says he’s the only one in the school refusing.

            My son calls & tells me to give him hell. I explain that I teach my sons to question authority and never follow blindly – think for themselves. Prove to them the masks work or STFU. Dial tone.

            My son informs me that they are just afraid he’ll be “the spark”. I knew exactly what he meant. Most kids didn’t want to wear masks, but lacked the courage or the will to push back.

            God love him, a good kid – he may yet be a “spark”. Somebody has to do it – had a long talk with both boys, telling them heroes will be made in the next 10 years.

            That, or all will be lost – as you say, the tree will become firewood.

          • MaryV May 30, 2021 at 8:04 pm #

          Ron Anselmo,

          We’re delusional – holding on to the belief that we live under the rule of law. – Nominal rule of law right now, lipstick on a pig. Also nominal fat years. Take advantage of both, brother.

          We’re a nation of keyboard warriors. – Isn’t it sad? And screen watchers.

          My children are about the same age as yours. Not sure young lions is what I’d say about them, but def. questioning authority.

          Excellent comment and comments on the comment.

          Watering the tree, nobody can wait for that like we waited for Santa Claus (Papá Noel for me) War is a sad terrible time. All we can hope is that we, and our children, keep our dignity, religion, convictions or sheer “make me” mechanism of fierce independence.

          Third Coast says “nothing left to lose”. I think La Joplin had a track like that. But it’s true. Life is precious, but we all gotta die. Cannot cling to life, gotta just be grateful for every minute and bit of love we can give or take.

          Very good thoughts my friend.

          I think I was fooled for maybe a week tops, when I discovered the WE Forum website and this infographic that drills down 1000s of levels and it was already up and running in at least March. This had to take months if not years of engineering. That was my first big clue. Then daily watching the numbers on world-o-meter, and they were so low, too low for any pandemic.

            The map showing distribution of “Covid-19” haplotypes produced by a Taiwanese researcher early last year was the “smoking gun” in my opinion. One type dominant in China, another in Iran (more deadly than any other, and magically targeting the top military and political officials!), another in Italy – but all found at relatively high levels in the US. If one understands even a crumb of population genetics – or knows how to use even a scrap of reason – it is obvious where this “pandemic” started. After that the “why” falls into place quickly – as long as one discards preconceptions.

      • Wizard of the Saddle June 1, 2021 at 7:52 am #

        The fact that VOVID hit America just as the presidential primaries were ramping up explains why the entire handling of this “pandemic” became so deeply politicized. All information provided by government authorities and politicians was thoroughly tainted with bias, exaggeration, spin, outright lies, and constant manipulation.

        Given that TDS was in full operation from 2016 to the present, I suppose it would have been the same in any year Trump was involved in presidential politics, but I cannot help but believe that for the virus to hit us early in 2020 was just about the worst possible timing. It guaranteed that the outbreak would become the most massive political football in human history.

      • SW May 28, 2021 at 11:49 am #

        Even if another surge does hit this summer what has to be kept in focus is that this is not a particularly lethal virus. The statistics are in and the survival rate vs. infection rate is 99% if you’re not elderly or sick to begin with. Mary V in an earlier post is right about how fast a virus moves thru a community and — remember flatten the curve? — that was strictly to not overwhelm the hospitals. Instead we all got flattened. A year of school essentially cancelled, small businesses on the ropes and trillions more in national debt for covid payments and buying vaccines.

      • Hereward the Woke May 28, 2021 at 2:09 pm #

        • JohnAZ May 28, 2021 at 3:53 pm #

          Exactly, but last year we had a surge last summer. Remember that Trump kept thinking and saying it would go away in summer. It did not, it surged. No explanation from anyone. Probably cost Trump the election.

          That is my comment, tongue in cheek hopefully. It better not surge this summer, no one would be able to figure out what to do.

        • tully May 28, 2021 at 4:52 pm #

          Summer surges are caused by people retreating back indoors to air conditioning once the heat/humidity really hits.

          Locally, cases started going up late last July, then a big spike when students returned to local campus and passed it around dorms and Greek housing. (They were all fine.) Cases started dropping mid Sept and continued up to Thanksgiving, several weeks when weather is beautiful here and people head back outdoors to soak it up before winter moves in.

          Cases began going up around Thanksgiving; spiked in early January, and pretty much been dropping since. Some upward movement at times, but overall dropping.

        • Rulo Deschamps May 29, 2021 at 2:57 pm #

        John, if another “surge” occurs, it will kill far less than 1% of the population, as before.

    The tell on corporate media collusion is always when they all have the same headline the next day without having done any investigation first, such as “Trump Questions Vote Count Without Foundation.”

    Sure enough, they all trumpeted “Unfounded Conspiracy Theory” in lockstep from Day One of the pandemic, even though the fresh market bat eating hypothesis was risibly implausible from the start.

    The other tell is when the liberal ecosystem selects a Hero-Who-Cannot-Be-Questioned, to represent Truth.

    Remember General Patraeus, to sell us the bogus Afghanistan Surge narrative? Patraeus, who turned out to be a not very trustworthy human being, to sell us a bogus narrative about completing a virtuous mission in Afghanistan.

    How about Robert Mueller, of unquestionable competence and integrity, to prove that Russiagate wasn’t a politically motivated hoax? Mueller who, under testimony, either knew nothing about the investigation he had supposedly overseen or lied in professing categorical ignorance.

    This time it was Dr. Fauci, the most virtuous physician who ever lived – who funded gain of function research right there in Wuhan against Obama’s orders. If, indeed, Fauci enabled the science experiment that has killed hundreds of thousands of people, how is he not criminally responsible?

    Note, also, how there is no national learning curve. The truth about the last national hero selected to lie to us never engenders skepticism the next time.

    Towards my destination, I had to pass through an infill area. Formerly known as “gentrified”.

    New flats and breweries and groceries and restaurants in a former warehouse, mercantile zone. Brick edifices and roll-up doors. Job well done.

    Inhabiting it are twenty and thirty somethings. Many outside, solo. Walking their dogs, riding their bikes, riding their cruiser boards.

    Majority alone, at most in pairs.
    Outside.
    With masks.

      I even saw what looked to be a family a mom two kids in the back seat all wearing their masks one kid looked to be about five the other was still in a car seat.
      Logic would dictate they are all from the same household so do they wear their mask 24 hour s a day?

        Last week, I saw a family at a state park popular with the young urban types looking for an escape from the added 20 degrees from asphalt and poured concrete.

        Four with dog. 2 parents, 2 small children. Mom had the obligatory “curated” arm tattoos and 80’s era plastic framed glasses.

        Dad had the obligatory beard and the careful but modish eyeglasses one typically finds on an architect or fashion house haunter.

        The dog, of course, was a French bulldog.

        They were masking up between bites and sips.

        Nobody around them.
        Outdoors.

        Everything about them is a carefully crafted message of conformity.

          Here in Boise, there are still the hangers-on who can’t bear to part with their masks, and it’s mostly the young and ‘stylish’ as well.

          Went to the boutique dog store where I get my dogs’ food, and even though our mandate is GONE all the young women behind the counter were wearing masks. One constantly adjusted hers, and the other had it below her nose.

          Massive OCD going on.

          I also see them out in the parks in the open air with no one around, wearing masks. In their cars, also, and on bikes. At this point all I can do is pity them. Total sheep.

        I live in West Hollywood but my mother lives in suburban L.A, south of Pasadena. This city, which I grew up in, is now 85% Asian (mostly Chinese). Mask-wearing in this city has been observable as far back as 2017-2018, pre-Covid. I’m still not entirely sure why. Maybe they had a fear of SARS? I never approached anyone because I didn’t want to seem like some kind of racist white person. I just gave them odd looks and assumed they thought the air was bad (it’s not) or they had fragile respiratory systems. The other day I looked out the living room window on a Sunday at 6:30am and saw a solitary woman walking down the street with a mask, helmet and plastic face shield. There was not another human being awake or outside anywhere.

      We’re old farts however. Remember every generation despairs of the following one. We experienced the same with our Sony Walkmen & shit.

      Yes, they look terrible. Not my kids, but in general. Less their fault than society’s. And they may still have something in them. Maybe the absence of any chance for the American Dream will make them fierce, once they realize it.

      • Ron Anselmo May 29, 2021 at 7:31 pm #

        Rulo – always good to hear from you, your input always well-thought out, thought-provoking and valuable.

        “Maybe the absence of any chance for the American Dream will make them fierce, once they realize it.” ~ Rulo

        I think kids, especially boys/young men do already recognize they have little chance for the American Dream – chances visibly narrowing over time – even weekly. I think that accounts for the malaise they feel (and that I see).

        Speaking of boys/young men, I agree that they’ll be fierce, but may be having trouble knowing when. After much thought, I’ve narrowed it to two possible reasons.

        One, as society has become so homogenized, there’s an absence of any “rite of passage” for “boys to young men”. I think they struggle with not knowing if and when a boy becomes a man. In Argie, there may still be some cultural delineation, as there are in many cultures – not so much anymore here (US).

        They’ll realize it’s a man’s responsibility to be fierce – but as a condition precedent, need to understand first, when they are men.

        Secondly, I remain an unapologetic, yet respectful chauvinist. Can’t help but think that some “Me Too” mommies have already taught their daughters to vilify boys/young men.

        The Sioux warriors understood where their fierceness came from. They stated that “they would never be defeated until the hearts of their women were broken” – understanding that their warrior strength came from the strength & support of their women.

        In vilifying boys/young men, the “Me Too’s” undermine the strength (and fierceness) of their men, to their own detriment.

        Just a generalization, and probably biased somewhat, but I think conservative men have the support of their women, and as a result are a little more fierce. Liberal men, seem to be vilified by their women, sapped of their strength and cucked as a result.

        Rulo, again, always good to hear from you my friend – hope our paths cross sooner than later, and hope all’s well on the North Florida farm.

        OK, done writing – now ducking.

        • Rulo Deschamps May 30, 2021 at 7:46 am #

          Ron, it’s bad enough that youngsters will have to live in a degraded world in every sense of the word. Robbing them of their identity, pride, rites of passage as you say makes their future look even worse. Adversity and how to cope with it is hard enough when you know who and what you are, impossible when you’ve been brainwashed to hate yourself.

          Not my kids’ case or yours, but I’m afraid many young people will have to deal with struggle without the comfort of strong convictions and independent thinking.

          Regarding land, farms… I’m finally at the end of the rope w the S FL property. Like you in the past, I’m selling what I have in the south & going north permanently soon. So yes, we may have a chance to hang around w the families, & grill some steaks, sooner rather than later. I’ll let you know when our exodus is complete. I’m wrapping up my last growing season in the south… I’ve had it with this place, cannot be here any longer.

            Good working hypothesis, until the dang things showed up on military radar simultaneously. So I don’t think that hypothesis will explain this stuff away yet.

            I’m more inclined to think that we are seeing either foreign advanced technology from the Russians OEM Chinese’s or from future humans time traveling back to the present day…….lol…..

            The fact that many of these objects move in ways that defy the known laws of physics is the most disturbing fact. But our understanding of physics is most likely incomplete. Otherwise, why do we have hosts of physicists arguing with one another endlessly over a plethora of scientific theories about the physical properties of the universe and how they all interact together.

            The truth may be that we are still too primitive in our technological development to fully comprehend and satisfactorily explain what these observers are witnessing and recording.

    “What would be worse, actually, is if we learn that American culture is untrustworthy, since politics is downstream of culture. It would be the equivalent writ large of a human personality at war with itself, unable to trust its own thoughts and actions.”

    I was actually thinking about this myself recently. US culture has been undergoing some kind of psychotic episode recently. Albeit so far mildly psychotic. There haven’t yet been any mass executions, or hot civil war activity. Although there has been massive street violence, rioting, and general civil unrest in Big City America, particularly.

    It must be mind boggling as a non-US citizen watching our news outlets nowadays. It must be like watching a fat, rich, obnoxious child lose control of her temper & disfigure the faces of all of those overpriced barbie dolls she wouldn’t let anybody else play with, and smash the radio controlled car that wouldn’t go fast enough.

    If you don’t believe this is an appropriate or apt analogy, even the founder of Black Lives Matter now has her flags flying over US embassies overseas, while she retires to her 3 (or 4 or 5) luxury homes that were paid by corporate America.

      Vonnegut’s The Sirens Of Titan may have a clue. They may be trying to unite us, and get things rolling, but using all the wrong levers (fear, greed, outrage, etc). In TSoT, a visionary human shipped other humans to Mars to build an army with the intent of attacking Earth, thus uniting the humans on Earth in a single cause.

      I’ve been watching on this front for a while, having grown up during one of the last ‘great projects’ with which this country was engaged, that of the Space Shuttle. It was a shiny, patriotic, powerful symbol of the country pulling together and doing something really worthwhile…trying to improve Humanity’s lot. It was bogus, but it got folks excited and working together.

      There are no such projects in the western world at present. There are lots of “Look at us, we do space!” or “Look at us, we do ca’puters!” Nothing at all like Russia’s and China’s “Look at us, we’re taking solid strides towards space colonization!”

      The last paragraph in your post is the most infuriating fact. I detest it when Democrats pull partisan stunts like bathing the White House in LGBTQWeird lights or flying BLM flags from our embassies abroad.

      We are reduced to a laughing stock internationally by such antics.

      If this gets any worse we may actually be better off if the Mohammedans conquer the West. That’s a pretty sorry truth and it highlights how rapidly this country is being flushed down the toilet and into the sewer by the proponents of societal degeneracy.

    Speaking of imbeciles, I have been checking out the policies of some of the upstate NY libraries in light of the new CDC guidance and dictator Andrew Cuomo’s new edicts.

    The Albany library decided that “with the desire to be as accessible, safe, and welcoming as possible” they are keeping the existing mask policy for everyone aged two and up.

    You’d think that that anyone associated with libraries could read well enough to see the facts on wearing masks, and the irrefutable evidence that no matter what somebody puts in a brand new study, in real life masks make no difference.

    Taiwan, the country that shut the virus down due to the strict enforcement of NPIs and testing? As it turns out, that didn’t happen.

    What happened to librarians? They should change their title to karens.

    This is not the worst of the libraries up here. I was just struck by the silly floweriness of the language they couched their totalitarian demands in.

      Yes. Totalitarian indeed. Of course, the pre-Covid ability to wear a mask anywhere if you wanted isn’t appropriate apparently. Everyone must wear a mask. Why?

      I guess you could be that person that wears a mask, but lets it sit under your nose. See how far they wanna push their Faucism.

    • MaryV May 28, 2021 at 10:52 am #

      They are the ultimate academics, and academics have proven to be the most gullible and susceptible to the death cult programming. I know because I work for a college. To a person, they all bought everything CNN delivered. They all worship Fauxi and adhere to his every suggestion. It’s really been quite an education for me.

      I used to wonder what was the key element in brainwashing, since it didn’t seem to have much to do with IQ. What I have seen this year is, a combo of college/university education (indoctrination) and television. Deadly combo, will pull you right into that Covid cult.

      A friend who is a librarian who miraculously remained sane, posted often about the crazy actions of her library and coworkers. I believe at one point she just quit her job.

      • Yohannon May 28, 2021 at 12:53 pm #

        Typically, the higher the IQ, the further away from the Earth and the instincts. Unfortunately, this also tends to mean saying goodbye to commonsense as well. The super intelligent live in mind made universes. Not the actual one. Whites particularly. East Asians are far more grounded despite their high(er) IQ’s.

        • Wizard of the Saddle May 31, 2021 at 1:20 pm #

          Yoho – While as a generalization I think you are onto something, I also think there is more to it than IQ alone. After all, higher IQ’s amongst Europeans did produce superior levels of civilization than IQ’s of sub-Saharan Africans. This is really indisputable by honest people willing to evaluate facts, logic, history, and outcomes.

          I think what a high IQ person does with their superior intellect depends on each individuals choices and can be heavily influenced by societal biases and the effects that tutors and other mentors have on these developing young minds before they reach maturity.

          If academia were not so corrupt and wholly in the hands of the Marxists, would the universities be wasting so many young intellects by molding them into SJW’s lacking the critical capacity to think logically?

        I think is is also a kind of “loyalty to their ‘brand’.” I am having a hard time defining their “brand,” but it is not, and probably never has been, about intellectual rigor (though that has always been the pretense). It seems to be mostly about snobbery and loyalty to their social class, which exists as a quasi-religious arm of the state–the priest class. Shenanigans of this kind are what the priest class is FOR. They are the state’s ideological enforcers.

    That might have been true at one time, but I'm not at all sure it's true now: our friendly intelligence agencies have played a large role- maybe
    a dominant one- in the creation of culture for a long time; via Hollywood,

    • Anthea May 29, 2021 at 11:19 am #

      I don’t think politics is downstream of culture at all. Culture has always been crafted from above. Ours has been systematically saturated with filth, in music and the arts and letters–and “approved” philosophical bases. All these are marked by a hatred and contempt for the humane life–and for human life and living organisms in general–despised for their beauty, complexity, incomprehensibility, and mystery.

      The “culture” that has been forced on us, by way of the media’s sewer pipe, is one in which all things (including ourselves) are objects of hatred and contempt, mechanically going about their rituals of degradation. Cattle at best, and certainly unworthy of reverence; merely “things” destined for the landfill, like all other things.

    Not at all related to today.
    After last week’s post, I went and rewatched the video for End of the Line.

    Although he doesn’t have a vocal solo, and perhaps because he doesn’t, one gets the feeling, along with the provided visual cues, that the song is from Bob’s perspective. The angles, the face behind fleeting landscapes, his gaze held on Orbison’s vacated rocking chair.

    Impressive. Only him and Lynne now.

    So, what’s to be done when it’s proven the current administration is fraudulent and totally without legitimacy? Is there something in the constitution to deal with such an incident, or do we have to make things up as we go along? Even here in Minnesota, I read that in Duluth alone, approximately 100,000 votes were illegal. A friend of mine volunteers as a poll watcher, and he said he was required to sit out of the way, where he couldn’t really see anything, unlike previous years where he could wander around, as his rulebook instructs.

    Such a thing would destroy the Democratic party, and they deserve it. I’ve seen Biden compared to Millard Fillmore, probably on this site. I fear it would also tear this country apart.

    ‘Life Insurance and Covid-19; Something Doesn’t Make Sense’:
    Written by Jeff Harris
    Wednesday May 26, 2021

    “You would think that during the worst Pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu life insurance companies would be hedging their bets to avoid major losses from Covid-19. I haven’t written a life policy for several years so I was wondering what was going on? I called one of the brokers I deal with that interacts with hundreds of big life insurers to get an inside look into how the Covid crisis has changed their business.

    Imagine my surprise when she said it was pretty much business as usual! Last year when the hysteria was just getting ramped up she did say the companies temporarily tightened up underwriting and reduced the amount of coverage they would offer. But as time went by and the hard data came rolling in those same companies went back to business as usual.

    I asked her specifically if life insurers wanted a Covid test as part of the underwriting process and she said none that she was aware of. Hmm, that’s pretty interesting isn’t it? The most lethal pandemic in decades descends on the globe with deadly mutations taking millions of innocent lives and the life insurance companies couldn’t care less.

    I also asked if the cost per thousand of coverage had increased due to Covid and again she said no. Rates were pretty much the same as they were before the Covid Pandemic ravaged the earth. Life Insurance companies are very risk adverse. They don’t like losing money to unnecessary claims. The fact they’re treating Covid as a nonevent should be an indicator that something is very wrong with the whole narrative.”

    “It’s just so confusing and complex!” Mmm, no it isn’t.

    • O.G. Hawkins May 28, 2021 at 1:02 pm #

      Life Insurance companies are very risk adverse. They don’t like losing money to unnecessary claims.*

      Indeed. Life Insurance companies are the complete opposite of Hedge Funds. They have teams of Actuaries studying extensive historical raw data for any deviation whatsoever. I assume that the management of these Actuaries became aware of the global COVID pandemic sometime during 2020 as it was in all the papers.

        To put the numbers into perspective, Spanish Flu killed between 3 and 5% of the world population. The numbers vary (and I know it’s a big variation) b/c poorer nations probably had higher death tolls than reported but it’s hard to verify. Even if we go with 3%, that would mean of our 7+ billion world population, the equivalent of 210 million people would have had to die by now. It’s been 3 million — if that number is even correct.

        The full cooperation of the media has stoked these fires of fear, misinformation and now, government control of private lives. Never hear these numbers on TV and you won’t either. Bill Clinton allowed only a handful of media outlets to control the market. The dissenting voices are on the internet and they are being silenced by all the social media with the urging of Congress.

    add a few highly talented mathematicians to calculate possible mutations – oh yes that is a reality

    now let’s ignore the possiblity that gain of function on known flu virus was not done, that the exact reaction of the human body to that type of pathogen for use as a delivery system is wu wu

    was not in Spain, was not in Italy, was not in United States in the summer and fall of 2019

            So, pull the mask down when you need to sneeze and pull it back up when you don’t? Not the opposite way around and replace the mask? That’s stupidity, not revolutionary,

    When and how does it end for [Germany]?

    GIBS ME DAT–“The president of Germany isn’t welcome here as far as victim communities are concerned

    Why do anything more than issue a cursory “apology” directed at nobody in particular?
    https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/05/28/africa/germany-recognizes-colonial-genocide-namibia-intl/index.html
    Germany will pay Namibia $1.3bn as it formally recognizes colonial-era genocide
    Updated 9:02 AM EDT, Fri May 28, 2021
    (CNN) More than 100 years after the crimes committed by the German colonial power in what is now Namibia, Germany has formally recognized the atrocities committed against the Herero and Nama ethnic groups as genocide.
    Germany will support Namibia and the descendants of the victims with €1.1 billion ($1.3 billion) for reconstruction and development and ask for forgiveness for the “crimes of German colonial rule,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in a statement on Friday.
    “Our goal was and is to find a common path to genuine reconciliation in memory of the victims. This includes naming the events of the German colonial period in what is now Namibia, and in particular the atrocities in the period from 1904 to 1908, without sparing or glossing over them. We will now also officially call these events what they were from today’s perspective: a genocide,” Maas said.
    The Namibian government saw the formal acceptance of the atrocities as genocide as a key step in the process of reconciliation and reparation, Namibian presidential press secretary Alfredo Hengari told CNN on Friday.
    “These are very positive developments in light of a very long process that has been accelerated over the past five years. People will never forget this genocide; they live with it. And this is an important process in terms of healing those wounds,” he said.
    Victims group reject deal
    However victims groups have rejected the deal. Vekuii Rukoro, the Paramount Chief of Herero people, former attorney general and member of parliament told CNN that they were not part of the discussion with the German government.
    “Is this the kind of reparation that we are supposed to be excited about? This is just a public relations. This is a sellout job by the Namibian government. The government has betrayed the cause of my people,” he said.
    Rukoro said that Herero and Nama victim groups expect monetary reparations. He said reparations didn’t need to go to individual people, but should be in the form of a collective payment to the descendants of those killed and pushed off their land during the genocide.
    He added that the German president is not welcome in the southern African country.
    “The president of Germany isn’t welcome here as far as victim communities are concerned.

    He is persona non grata,” he said.

    German troops killed up to 80,000 of Herero and Nama people in the southern African country between 1904 and 1908 in response to an anti-colonial uprising, according to the United States[ Holocaust Memorial] Museum.
    According to historians, the bloody conflict happened when the Herero indigenous people revolted against colonial troops over land seizures. Germany, which today gives development aid to Namibia, offered its first formal apology for the conflict in 2004.

    Both countries had been in talks since 2015 to negotiate compensation for the massacre by German colonial forces. Maas said in his statement that representatives of the Herero and Nama communities were “closely involved” in the negotiations on the Namibian side.

    “The crimes of German colonial rule have long burdened relations with Namibia. There can be no closing of the book on the past. However, the recognition of guilt and our request for apology is an important step towards coming to terms with the crimes and shaping the future together,” Maas said.

    German media is reporting that an official request for forgiveness will be made by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at a ceremony in the Namibian parliament.

    Macron seeks forgiveness for France’s role in Rwanda genocide, but stops short of apology.

    “A decision on a possible trip by the Federal President will be made after the governments have reached a formal agreement and in close consultation with the Namibian side,” a spokesperson at the office of the Federal President told CNN.

    The announcement comes a day after French President Emmanuel Macron publicly acknowledged France’s “overwhelming responsibility” in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and said only the survivors could give “the gift of forgiveness.”

    In 1994, around 800,000 mainly ethnic Tutsis were killed by Hutu militias supported by the Rwandan government. France has been accused of failing to prevent the genocide and of supporting the Hutu regime, even after the massacres had started.

        One more thing. Are the Krauts going to force all German citizens to fund these reparations? Even the ones who are descended from Turkish immigrants? I’ll bet that will go over like a lead balloon with non-ethnic German taxpayers in that country whose ancestors were busy ethnically cleansing Greeks from Anatolia a century ago and had nothing to do with German colonies in sub-Saharan Africa.

        Perhaps Angela Merkel will earmark a portion of these reparations to go to the Greeks in Greece……many of whom are descended from survivors of those pogroms who fled modern Turkey to reach safety in the Hellenic Republic. Or are Greeks too white and too responsible for the origins of the dreaded evil “Western Civilization” to qualify?

        Just sayin’, right?

      Unbelievable. No words, honestly.

      The only explanation I have is that once a person starts questioning the Official Narrative about anything, be it Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, 9/11, Syria, or covid, there is a risk of unraveling a lot lot of what you believed was true. Like, the US are the good guys, the bringers of freedom and democracy; our government would never hurt us, nor allow large companies to hurt us with bad products and/or practices; etc.

      Maybe it is because I come from coal miners stock on my mom’s side, but I may have been born knowing our government will allow the screws to be put to us if large corporations feel the need. Then there was the mess with DDT, and over the years more damaging products than I can think of. Ladies, remember the Rely tampons?

      I generally suspect government of the worst behaviors, and am pleasantly surprised when they don’t get there.

    Slate

    Dear Prudence,

    I have been married to a great guy for five and a half years. He is handsome, sexy, funny, and kind. It’s true that he has always been a little “prissy” about illnesses, but I never thought it was a real problem. However, during the pandemic, his terror about getting sick has reached new levels. For the last year, he has refused to take off his face mask, even when we are at home—just the two of us. This is true even now that he is fully vaccinated for the virus. He wears it to sleep, to do most of his bathroom activities, and, yes, even during lovemaking. To eat, he pulls it up to expose his mouth, and then quickly pulls it back down between bites. While he does not insist that I do the same, I can tell it bothers him that I don’t—especially because I have now started going maskless outside, per the CDC guidelines, and plan on restaurant dining inside soon for a girls’ night out.

    When I have tried to present him with the science, he says, “Scientists don’t fully understand the virus yet,” or, “I know it probably isn’t necessary, but wearing it doesn’t bother me, so if there’s even a small chance that it can protect us, I’d rather be on the safe side. What’s the harm?”

    I disagree that there’s no harm. I want to see my beautiful husband’s face again. I want to kiss him on the lips romantically, like we used to, and not through a piece of fabric. (He does not change his mask very often and it is often smelly and soiled.) And I don’t want to feel judged by him for my own behavior, which I consider reasonable.

    This is making me depressed and concerned about our future together. I have asked him when he plans to stop masking, and all he says is “When it is safe for everyone.” What if this becomes a permanent part of him? My mother, who is very conservative, thinks that I should move out. But I don’t think I’m ready for that step yet. What I want is my husband back. How can I get through to him?

    —Maskless and Alone

    Dear Maskless and Alone,

    I suspect your mother and I would agree on almost nothing COVID-related except the fact that your husband’s behavior is alarming. “What’s the harm?” is such an insidious phrase. It’s not a question; it’s a statement of “leave me alone.” But there is lots of harm in leaving him alone—harm to his mental health, to yours, and to your relationship.

    You need to sit down with him at a time free of heightened emotions—so not right after sex (I am impressed—is that the word?—that you are still sleeping with him!). Tell him all about the harm here: His behavior is alienating you and is certainly not offering him any real protection against disease. Give him three options. First, he can make an appointment with his physician to talk about effective protective measures. If he does this, he has to commit to following the doctor’s recommendations, and you have to be present so he can’t lie to you about what happens there. Hopefully, his doctor will say he has to do option No. 2: start seeing a therapist. If he chooses this, he has to commit to at least six sessions (or some other number that feels right to you). Finally, he can decide—because it would be his decision if he doesn’t take another action—to call an end to the relationship. I know you want your husband back, but he isn’t that husband right now, and he needs to understand just how serious this is. To be clear, you have to mean it when you say that the relationship has to end if he doesn’t make progress, but I think that would be the right move.

    If he goes with one of the first two options, you should promise to do the legwork: finding him a therapist, making appointments, etc. Your husband is in the middle of a long-running crisis and that is the worst time to have to navigate our completely patient-unfriendly mental health care system.

    Once he has committed to some sort of treatment, see if you can get him to promise to change his mask every day until he feels secure going without it. If you don’t have enough at home, there are lots of deeply discounted masks available now. But I don’t want you to lead with the demand to change his mask every day, because that could open the door to negotiations around behavior—and what you need here is to address the problem itself. I will be thinking about you!

    Yoho: Tucker brought this up last night with a guest – one of the two guys slated to take over Rush’s spot. He had a great comment: Leave him, he’s eMASKulated.

    One concerning thing: Tucker said that both had been vaccinated. But reading the letter, she says nothing about herself, only him. That might explain it: She’s unclean in his eyes. Based on that, I’d say they have no future together. Vaxed and unvaxed must separate.

    Re: the vax.

    Both the Harmaceutical corps that make the experimental injection and the Anti-Social Media corps that boot recipients wishing to discuss their plenteous adverse events are shielded from all legal liability. Isn’t that convenient (and how did the nation ever arrive at such a place)?

    And, apparently, these two groups have WORLDWIDE legal immunity! What are the odds? Well, at least someone, somewhere is “immune” from something in all this.

    However, there are many bit players in all this that aren’t legally shielded, and they’ll have hell to pay for it, one way or another: network media, healthcare professionals, politicians, and various business and employers all demanding compliance with threats and bribes.

          I do my bit to subvert the Leftwing narrative with every person I happen to converse with in public.

          No long speeches. Just little subversive comments to store clerks, for example. I tell them how sorry I feel for them that their employers continue to insist that they wear those “useless, unhealthy, suffocating masks” in order to do their work. They always agree with me appreciatively.

          A small victory for spreading our narrative and pouring acid on theirs..

            It’s all about changing or influencing one mind at a time in a personal and empathetic way. FAR more powerful than posting up memes on Facebook.

            If every nationalist in America did this multiple times daily all of the remaining mask mandates would collapse within a month due to growing public pressure to do away with them.

            Best of all, the Masters of the Universe at Twatter, Faceplant, etc. can’t censor, de-platform, of post snarky notices and “fact checks” when it involves good old fashioned analog speech between human beings.

            We need to stop being so damned obsessed with the mistaken notion that only digital speech can change minds and move the needle on political issues. It just ain’t so. The old-fashioned methods still work too.

    Finally somebody is fighting the bastards on out behalf

    1,000 Lawyers And 10,000 Doctors File Lawsuit For Violations Of Nuremberg Code
    May 24, 2021

    Sven-Allan Johansson – A large team of more than 1,000 lawyers and over 10,000 medical experts, led by Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, has initiated legal proceedings against the CDC, WHO and the Davos Group for crimes against humanity.

    Fuellmich and his team present the incorrect PCR test and the order for doctors to describe any comorbidity death as a Covid death – as fraud.

    The PCR test was never designed to detect pathogens and is almost 100% inaccurate at 35 cycles. All PCR tests monitored by the CDC are set at 37 to 45 cycles. The CDC acknowledges that tests over 28 cycles are not allowed for a positive reliable result.

    This invalidates over 90% of the alleged Covid cases / “infections” detected by the use of this incorrect test.

    In addition to the incorrect tests and fraudulent death certificates, the “experimental” vaccine itself violates Article 32 of the Geneva Convention.

    Under Article 32 of the 1949 Geneva Convention, “mutilation and medical or scientific experiments not required for the medical treatment of a protected person” are prohibited.

    According to Article 147, conducting biological experiments on protected persons is a serious breach of the Convention.

    The “Experimental” Vaccine Violates All 10 Nuremberg Codes – Which Carry The Death Penalty For Those Who Try To Break These International Laws:

    1) Provides immunity to the virus

    This is a “leaky” gene therapy that does not provide immunity to Covid and claims that they reduce the symptoms, but double-vaccinated are now 60% of patients who need ER or ICU with covid infections.

    2) Protects the recipients from getting the virus

    This gene therapy does not provide immunity and the double vaccine can still catch and spread the virus.

    3) Reduces deaths due to viral infection

    This gene therapy does not reduce deaths from the infection. Double-vaccinated people infected with Covid have also died.

    4) Reduces the circulation of the virus

    This gene therapy still allows the virus to spread because it gives zero immunity to the virus.

    5) Reduces the transmission of the virus

    This gene therapy still allows transmission of the virus because it does not confer immunity to the virus.

    ***the article goes on to list 10 ways in which the Nuremberg Code protecting human rights is being violated by governments pushing the vaccine****

      Inaccurate.

      Fuellmich addresses this in the Corona Ausschuss links that I have posted many times.

      They are filing multiple lawsuits using an international legal network. There is no single large lawsuit, and the aim is to create a Corona court that could possibly result in a Nuremberg 2.0-style hearing.

      Visit Coronaausschuss.de

      Some videos are in English, and they are the go-to source for accurate information on the Corona assault on the public.

        I defer to your greater knowledge on this topic, Night Owl. But when you say “inaccurate” what exactly do you mean? That there are many lawsuits, not just one? Or that these litigants are misrepresenting the facts about Corona somehow?

        • Night Owl May 28, 2021 at 5:30 pm #

          Just that there is no one large lawsuit. Fuellmich mentioned that this news was probably put out by a well-meaning source, but that it is not accurate.

          They are launching multiple lawsuits in the EU, US, and Canada using a network of lawyers working with the Stiftung Corona-Ausschuss, which is based in Germany.

    I have to disagree pretty much Franco … one reason to read JHK twice a week is you get a neat summing up of the state-of-the-nation, at least to the extent that it revolves around DC and its long list of colorful characters.

    And I think JHK has been pretty consistent in not explicitly endorsing or supporting crazy conspiracy theories, but rather comments on where the Zeitgeist of the day lies, and whether the rumours and theories are having any political impact.

    I disagree pretty strongly that there is (or was) a Deep State | Democrat cabal that nobbled Trump, because he was his own worst enemy, and he made the Deep State deeper, and the Swamp swampier. The Dems didn’t have to do much.

    I think the Trump Family Inc was as guilty as hell over Russia, and Mueller played dead, and Barr ran interference.

    Since then, the GOP has dug themselves a great big hole, embracing Trumpism when he isn’t a winning proposition. But if you cross him (or one of his, like the QAnon Nut Marjorie Taylor Greene) – it can be a losing proposition. The Republicans are trapped by the MAGA Crowd … can it end well?

    But on the issue of whether the Covid-19 virus escaped via lab workers in Nov 2019 – it seems to me that is worthy of checking – although without Chinese full cooperation, I’m not sure what you get to check.

    While on balance I think the vaccines have been produced by very skilled biomedical types, and have tested well, there is no doubt that the long-term effects can’t be known for years.

    On the issue of the 2020 election, the Cyber Ninjas from Whiteshoe Florida have no credence, and is a bad move by Republicans. This Arizona Republican thinks it’s ridiculous as well. Probably the same sort of fix is in in Georgia too.

    The problem and frustration is the large set of conspiracy mongers who post here – I think many have been kicked off everywhere else.

    They are so adamant that they have “the knowledge” of every vast world-wide conspiracy that they heap scorn and hatred on anyone who dares say anything against their holy writ and sacraments.

    They don’t discuss the JHK issues raised – they just repeat the same incantations week in and week out. They hurl abuse and the most vile ad hominems at the heretics, and yet believe earnestly that they are the victims.

    Anyway – I don’t care – doesn’t affect me at all, and I genuinely believe in free speech and rational debate.

    I’m comfortable in the knowledge that I actually read what JHK has to say, and try to concentrate on that, whether I agree or disagree. The RWNJ crowd are like flies at a picnic – annoying but not harmful.

    • hmuller May 28, 2021 at 5:51 pm #

      Tekapo, the way I see things the mainstream press has been very biased, unfair, and abusive against Trump and against “the deplorables” who supported him. So have you, by the way.

      Why do none of you elitist liberals ask why working class white people supported him? Don’t you think there are some legitimate grievances? Like the steady degradation of working class living standards over the past 50 years. Things like – vilifying Bible Belt moral values to exalt drag queen story hour is another area of that rubs us the wrong way.

      You sound very smug and happy with your secure financial entitlements situation, therefore to you all is right with the world.(We have yet to see how that all ends.)

      The fact is you have your favorite conspiracy theories, except they are not that since they are absolutely true. LOL

      “I think the Trump Family Inc was as guilty as hell over Russia, and Mueller played dead, and Barr ran interference”- Tekapo

      I think every so called “conspiracy theory” must be considered on its own merits (or lack thereof). To paint with too big a brush indicates a level of brainwashing beyond one’s powers of introspection to recognize.

      By the way, it’s awfully nice of you to almost admit the MSM has been lying its ass off about the Wuhan Lab.

      • Tekapo May 28, 2021 at 6:32 pm #

        I rest my case that people attack you personally on here if they want to disagree with you. They must be very angry dudes.

        Why do none of you elitist liberals ask why working class white people supported him? Don’t you think there are some legitimate grievances? Like the steady degradation of working class living standards over the past 50 years.

        You’re distorting history. I’ve stated many times that (a) I come from very working class white background, (b) I’m very pro-union, and (c) I deplore the fact that the Democrats don’t do enough for working class Americans. We’ve made a few dollars, but are far from elites.

        The country is in the vice of mega-corporations and financiers. Only a revolution will change that … but not a revolution from the Right, with showmen dressed up in buffalo hides..

        Trump wasn’t a result of working class economic grievance – he just saw the whole MAGA thing happening – anti people of color, anti-immigrants, anti-government, anti-elites. The Republicans have not initiated, endorsed, or passed one piece of pro-working-class legislation in their entire history … not one.

        Things like – vilifying Bible Belt moral values to exalt drag queen story hour is another area of that rubs us the wrong way.

        I’ll stay cautious on this one … this story hour meme seems to have grown legs of its own, and anyway I don’t see drag queens as a particularly oppressed group.

        Sure – people are allowed to hold “Bible Belt moral values” – but it’s worth noting that until fairly recently these included a very long list of discriminatory beliefs – anti-feminist, anti-black, anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-same-sex marriage … and much else.

        It’s not a bad thing that some of these discriminatory views are challenged … people shouldn’t be able to hide behind religion in order to act out bigotry.

        • hmuller May 28, 2021 at 7:01 pm #

          The way you assume a connection between the Christian religion and oppression pretty much tells me you are a hopeless cause, Tekapo.

          I’m not a fundamentalist. But if I had to chose, I’d take the Sermon on the Mount over Saul Alinsky, Hillary, and that Deep State you think is as mythical as Bigfoot..

          And for the record, that idiot in buffalo skins could not possibly be a worse President than brain-fog Joe.

          And why aren’t you exposing the Biden-China connection? Hint – look at the suitcases full of money they gave Hunter, probably still stained with hot and sour sauce.. You were so convinced that Trump was Putin’s catamite. Yet not a word about Biden squelching an investigation into the Wuhan lab leaking the virus!

            It’s not my “assumption”, comrade – there is at least 1500 years of documented history of oppression by the institutional christian churches. In fact European America was founded by a bunch of dissenting pilgrims who were fleeing a wrathful church.

            Christianity has always been a big fucking intolerant bully since it grabbed power in the 5th Century – you might not like it, but at least be honest and acknowledge the fact!

          • hmuller May 29, 2021 at 10:51 am #

            Your confusion is quite common, Tekapo. You can’t understand the difference between the pure religion taught by the founder and 2,000 years of flawed, brutal sinners committing acts they wrongly attribute to the founder.

            Here’s an example you might understand. Communist tyrants have murdered tens of millions of people. Lay all the blame for that on Karl Marx personally. In fact, every woke soy boy academic turd calling himself a Marxist should be blamed for those murders, taken out, and justly hung as punishment!

            It seems you neatly make my point for me. I find “pure” Christianity and “pure” Communism both equally unrealistic and inhuman – and both contain the very fertile seeds that lead to totalitarianism. They are both intolerant of other views, or of any others having any power or influence.

            And I expect many more millions have died in the name of “Christianity” than communism.

          • hmuller May 30, 2021 at 10:12 am #

            Well Tekapo, I suspect you are wrong. The count on Communist murders is around 100 million. Do you have a credible source for a Christian murder count?

            I seem to recall earlier you said you “love Karl Marx”. But now you say you reject “pure” communism. What kind of Communism or Marxism do you love? I’m a little confused about all that.

            I would hope you deplore Cambodian Communist leader Pol Pot murdering 20% of his countrymen 1975-1979. (Estimates range 13% to 30%) Any “Christian” leader measure up to that standard? I would say such a person was not a true Christian.

            I refer you to Paul Johnson’s book “Intellectual”..Each of 12 chapters relates a mini-biography on some modern thinker, starting with Rousseau. The author’s point is that they were flaming ass-holes and hypocrites on a personal level; and Marx was one of the worst.

      Whether or not it got out of the Wuhan lab or some other lab is secondary. We know pathogens are released from bio labs regularly. Therefore gain of function research has to be shut down, period.

      Beantown Bill can speak for himself, of course, but here are my impressions.OG.

      Every great fortune (or great nation) is founded upon a great theft. We took America from its former inhabitants. And if we develop too much of a weak sister guilt complex over that fact, we will lose America to the “undocumented” hordes pouring in. As Yohannon would no doubt remind us, you fight for what’s yours or you lose it.

      The Zionists took Israel from the Palestinians. The operative principle is “might makes right” despite the victim card which Zionist bullies love to play. The early Zionists (1890-1948) barely gave a thought to the Palestinians, Establishing a state against Ottoman, then British opposition was seen as the real problem.

      I’ve read a lot about this situation and lived in Israel and toured the occupied lands. I don’t want to write a book here.

      So my bottom line, neither side has been virtuous, fair, kind, or humane. Arab terrorism, suicide bombers, rockets launched from Gaza into Israel – what should the Arabs expect? Ice cream and love letters?

          Where is the “land of unwalled villages”.

          “Joseph then proceeds to provide a genealogy of his people. Though a fierce Jewish nationalist, proud of wielding the ‘Sceptre of Judah’, he cannot, and does not, claim for them Semitic descent; he traces their ancestry not to Shem, but to Noah’s third son, Japheth; or more precisely to Japheth’s grandson, Togarma, the ancestor of all Turkish tribes. ‘We have found in the family registers of our fathers,’ Joseph asserts boldly, ‘that Togarma had ten sons, and the names of their offspring are as follows: Uigur, Dursu, Avars, Huns, Basilii, Tarniakh, Khazars, Zagora, Bulgars, Sabir.

            I have no interest in a stable middle east other than i dont want nuclear terrorism on american soil.

            And does israel stabilize the middle east or just provoke the predictable animosities?

            I’d rather the U.S. military absolutely raze the entire region than the US support israel as a supposedly “stabilizing example of progressive democracy and values in the region” or whatever b.s.

            Some might argue with reasonable justice, John, that the Middle East was a sleepy little backwater of the world where not much happened until the mid-20th century. First, there was the dust-up in North Africa between the Axis and the Allies. Then, just as things were returning to the status quo ante, the Zionists established the State of Israel through terrorist attacks and the first Arab-Israeli war. The ME has not been “stable” since then, with 3 more Arab-Israeli wars and 2 intifada’s since then.

            Yes, Israel is a democracy and closer, culturally, to the West than the Muslim Arab and Persian nations of the region, but it is a bit laughable to pretend that the existence of modern Israel has been a occurrence that led to greater stability in the region. History says otherwise.

      • benr May 29, 2021 at 10:46 am #

        Zionist took Israel no the few people at the time calling themselves Palestinians fled when they were told a great war was coming in which Arabs would murder every Jew in the land and drive the remaining few into the Sea.
        That did not happen and the rest is history.
        Of course the fact that the few that were allowed to return bred like roaches and now are over flowing the region and consuming what resources there are all with zero industry or way to feed, water, clothes, house and most of all take care of sanitation.
        In steps the hated state of Israel the only country willing to help these people who then bite the hand that feeds them.

        Much like the great lie that the Desert southwest some how belongs to Mexico as if they have anymore claim to it than the Spanish who took over Mexico.

        How far back shall we go to decide rightful claims?

          Why should i care about israel at all, or whether palestinians gum up the entire silly techno-state project and ruin israel’s dream? Why should i care?

        • Wizard of the Saddle June 1, 2021 at 1:16 pm #

          The validity of whole concept of “rightful claims” is debatable. Every living creature on the Earth is involved, to one degree or another, in the competition for resources. People compete for land and the animal, mineral, plant and living space resources it provides. No group of people has any inherent perpetual claim of exclusive title to any piece of land. All such claims are merely transitory and subject to change at any moment another group of people shows up who possess the power and ability to take and hold whatever said parcels of land they covet.

          This is how it has always been. This is how it will always be.

          So-called “international laws” governing land claims are all man-made legal fictions useful for giving leverage to different groups at different times in squabbles over land that don’t end up rising to the ultimate court of open armed warfare.

          Folks need to get real about this.

          This is why the only way to take and hold land is with a strong military and a resolute national will.

    This exact scenario has been laid out by medical, legal, and political insiders at Corona Ausschuss again and agian, and it is beyond apparent at this point.”

    Agreed. Only thing I’ll add is that around 90% of what we’re fed in the media- not just the obviously corporatized part- is purposeful distraction

        You can start by giving credit where it’s due. Thank Andrew Cuomo the NY governor for killing 15,00 people when he moved the Covid patients into nursing homes. Or is that another conspiracy theory?

        Who says 580,000 Americans died “of Covid”, rather than “with Covid”. Co-morbidity factors have been discussed in this forum, I’m surprised you missed that. Or maybe just didn’t understand it.

        By the way, George Floyd died “with Covid”, So why do they keep beating up that poor policeman!

        You think you can throw a lot of ludicrous shit into one big stew and claim that’s what others are arguing. It’s called a strawman argument. Look it up. You do it over and over because apparently it’s what makes you such a master debater.

          I don’t have to throw anything anywhere Mr Muller – the conspiracists do it all by themselves … there’s so much crazy stuff floated on here as if it’s gospel, that you need a helicopter to stay above it.

          Does anyone seriously believe the Covid-19 is a Great Reset depopulation timebomb, orchestrated through gain-of-function vaccines made by huge public corporations under order by the evil Dr Fauxi? Really?

          Can anyone with a genuinely rational mind believe such things to be true – and that there are organisations on the planet that are capable of achieving such results? It’s entertaining enough … don’t blame me for pointing out how laughable it all is.

          Meanwhile – i have a rational and open mind … if serious medical types start to state that a Wuhan Lab origin might be possible, then of course I take notice. That is a research activity – if the Chinese allow it – it’s not a wild conspiracy theory debunk.

            Why do you take the conspiracy stuff so literally tekapo. I roll with some right wing conspiracy tirades these days because they make symbolic sense to me even i believe facts are exaggerated in them. In a sense, the conspiracy theories are less about specific facts and more about the broad-brush-stroke symbolism as a short-hand. Passionately trying to debunk specifics in them only makes you appear to miss the point, which is the symbolism. They are, imo, often intentional (if not always consciously) exaggerations that serve a purpose

            I understand what you’re saying, and why, but I can’t readily accept it. There are five or ten on here in number (but possibly 90% in terms of words per week), who literally believe all the conspiracy theory shite they spout and assume as gospel – week in and week out.

            And not only do they constantly repeat the mantras to each other – presumably for affirmation, they heap scorn and even abuse on dissenters, and the “sheeple”.

        I’m torn between thinking a too-sensitive test inflated case numbers and also that many mild, recovered cases went uncounted.

        In the end i’m most suspicious that infection numbers were much higher than recorded, and just about all cases were mild. Early-on, there was no testing.

        I still think infections were undercounted, and deaths overcounted, to inflate the death rate.

        What i do know is that regardless of what any of these numbers actually are, the yearly death total, which is harder to skew, proves that this virus was what everyone insisted it was not…a bad flu year by another name and exaggerated to high heaven by various interests

        • gustafson.robert.22 May 28, 2021 at 8:15 pm #

          Actually it seems likely that in early 2020 cases were seriously undercounted, when testing was almost nonexistent for 6 months or more, and a liwer case number made the deathrate apoear astronomic (remember when people everywhere were claiming it was as high as 10%?).

          Then once testing started in july and august 2020, there was a motivation to show the public huge case numbers, and the rhetoric became all about “case surges.” At this point i think what had been a vastly undercounted number of (mild, recovered) cases became an overcounting.

          Maybe in the end these two phases balance out and case numbers are now less wildly skewed.

          But deaths are exaggerated, with so many pre-existing condition cases being counted.

    MASSIVE: WORLD RENOWNED DOCTOR BLOWS LID OFF OF COVID VACCINE

    They want a needle in every arm. When coercion stops, forced innoculation will begin.

    https://ncrenegade.com/massive-world-renowned-doctor-blows-lid-off-of-covid-vaccine/

    • JohnAZ May 28, 2021 at 8:25 pm #

      Interesting. Nothing new here though. You and others have given a good report on the negative side of the disease. Observations.

      He definitely acknowledges the existence of the disease. To him it is a one percent problem to the population. He blames spreading the fear around was the fault of the vaxx manufacturers and the agencies of the Fed government plus the WHO. I remember last year when the new flu was first detected, who was it that sent out the alarm bells? It was Trump setting up Pence, Fauci and Birx to address the problem. The media jumped on Fauci’s doomsday pronouncements and the rest is a Fauci, media conspiracy.

      Just like our government, who is the ultimate beneficiary for all of this?
      He identifies the vaxx manufacturers, the CDC, the WHO, the NIH, the Gates Foundation. No way are these groups the ultimate culprits here. To believe that the Covid was released so that everybody would have to be vaxxed as some sort of the mark of the beast is not that feasible. Causing the leak at the source, enabling the initial spread, did Pharma companies that had not been identified yet been involved in the initial movements? I will admit one thing, if these are the guilty parties, string them up.

      The doctor has not a clue who is behind Covid, its release, its spread, its propaganda mill spreading the fear last year, its involvement in the Democratic takeover, these are things that are the heart of this disease, not the vaxx.

      I believe that the veil of secrecy behind this whole matter idvstarting to crack in Wuhan. I hope the whole rotten group of people that have contributed to this colossal fiasco comes to trial. You are right that a global, Nuremberg style situation might be the answer. I really believe that the true exposure of what went on would destroy the American political structure totally. That is why the Deep State and not just the Dems will fight disclosure of the Covid conspiracy.

      The doctor was very concerned about the impact of the vaccine. It is dangerous to folks that are “sensitive” or “allergic” to it. We have discussed the spike protein attacking the blood vessels before. We know that the disease kills and maims by getting the immune system to over react and that some treatments have been available all along to enable the body to stop the immune cascade. Who stopped this? What groups shot down quinine, shot down ivermectin, or any other drug? The president himself was treated, why wasn’t that SOP for everyone? Find this bad guy, maybe he is a key to finding out whodunit.

      The vaccine is the main driver to the whole thing? The initial phases of Covid sort of deny this. The idea of a vaccine was not even around in the early part of 2020. Just Fauci, separation, and masks. Then lockdowns. Trump knew that this was stop gap, and pushed the vaccines. Was Trump, as the cheerleader, the guilty party to the doctors accusation? It Doubt it.

      As I said, if the doctor is right, the culprits deserve to be hanged. I just do not believe the Pharma guys are big enough to pull this off. This is global. Why? What do the jerks get from killing a million people, maiming millions more, and remember that this is much much more than just the USA. Who is the main motivator here?

      China? World control, maybe?

      The Dems and their Deep State? US control, maybe?

      Some sort of a global mob, aka SPECTRE, trying to take over? Maybe?

      One thing that is for sure, it is huge in capability and medical technology.

      Or it is a series of coincidences that add up to the corruption of the world? Yeah, sure.

      Watch the crack in the dam that is developing in Wuhan.

      • gustafson.robert.22 May 28, 2021 at 8:39 pm #

        Would it really matter much if covid was released intentionally somehow or was just a result of human error at the lab or bad hygeine in the meat market?

        Either way, covid was “all about the vaccine from the beginning” for Moderna, and then Phizer, whether pharma had a hand in starting the pandemic (possible but much less likely to me) or no.

        However covid became a global panic situation, Moderna saw dollar signs. And vaccine talk and clamour started early in 2020. “Vaccine” was the messiah and holy grail by March for the gullible, impressionable majority of people.

        And Moderna rubbed their hands and drooled

        • JohnAZ May 28, 2021 at 9:25 pm #

          If you were the CEO of Moderna, Pfizer, or JJ, wouldn’t you drool?

          It is a business, period. The job of every corporation is to make a profit, period. Drooling, I certainly hope so.

            Thats all fine until testing and regulation get dropped. And until pharma interests go unchecked by media or government.

            A capitalist with class = a loser in today’s world. They only reason they do not put out questionable product is liability. That is why there is not with the vaxx. Remember Microsoft that put bogus, bug filled software out over and over to make their schedules?

          If the PTB are now fighting over the origin of this thing you can bet it’s a big fat red herring, just out there to ultimately throw someone under the bus. And even after they are, I’m guessing Fauxi, he’ll be sent packing with a huge golden umbrella, and he won’t give two shits that his name has been besmirched.

          They’d prefer we argue and gnash our teeth over the origin of this rather than the massive, deadly, world-wide hoax.

        Destroying jobs, on the pipeline

        Taxing the middle class, by trying to remove the Trump tax cuts that gave cuts to 80% of the middle class.

        Taxing the economic engine of the US, what is left of it, by increasing corporate and capital gains taxes

        Feeding the gimme population of the country with freebies, free tuition, forgiving student debt, increasing welfare. Gimmes breed collapse, witness the homeless increasing constantly.

        Just released a 6 trillion dollar budget of which 4.1 trillion is paid for. Gee, I wish I could get away with that.

        After four years of bad, bad Russia, now okays a Russian pipeline. I hope all the pipe fitters on the US Canada pipeline appreciate the irony of that one.

        Instead of pushing the investigation of the Covid initiation, is trying to block it in every way he can. Why? NWO? China? Maybe USA?

        Did nothing to thwart the Hamas efforts to bomb Israel. Israel never starts these firefights, but boy they sure end them well.

        He executed Trump’s Covid plan pretty well, but then tried to take total credit for it. Maybe it was a Freudian slip, maybe he is acknowledging participation in the entire Covid plan.

        Any way, there is just a start of the failure of the Biden administration. He is only beginning.

        And Po, you better come up with some facts about those horrible conservatives whose only flaw is they are trying to stop Biden’s suicide ideation for the US.

            Are you also including his multi-talented, dignified son, Hunter? You remember the one who produces videos of himself smoking a crack pipe, then getting blown by his 14 yr old niece. He sent some of those videos to “porn hub” under a pseudo-name. They’re probably taken down by now.

            But hey, Hunter had to keep busy. All those no show million dollar jobs his Dad got him didn’t require much time and effort. And he couldn’t play Navy Officer anymore after his urine tested hot for cocaine. And doing the big nasty with his brother’s widow got tedious after a while. Poor Hunter.

            Oh yes Tekapo, the Biden’s are overflowing with dignity.

      LMAO! The idiots are still calling that Jan 6 protest a domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol.

      Even with 100s of videos showing the police moving the barricades, waving them in, and the overwhelming evidence of a false flag complete with agents provacateurs and CNN reporter plants.

    Woke World is closing in on anyone who dares disagree with their woo woo insanity:

    Virginia teacher placed on leave after speech disputing ‘biological boy can be a girl and vice versa’

    Leesburg Elementary teacher Byron ‘Tanner’ Cross described it as ‘lying to a child’

      Well , fact was 90% of the workforce of the Catholic Church was volunteers , and 90% of its revenue was voluntary donations.

      90% of the workforce of the Boy Scouts was volunteers , and 90% of its revenue was voluntary donations.

      If either outfit survives , it will be because volunteers ( again ) ignore in practice 90% of the shit coming out of their own mouths.

      Anyway , now it appears that even paying through the fucking nose for that village that is going to raise your kid isn’t good enough either.

      Lol , who would have guessed it would turn out that way ? !

      • JohnAZ May 28, 2021 at 8:58 pm #

        Kesa

        Does it make you wonder why a small percentage of those volunteers signed up?

        Our lovely Liberal society is trying to make all this acceptable behavior.

        • KesaAnna May 28, 2021 at 9:37 pm #

          It doesn’t look to me like a small percentage voted to compel people to pay for what they previously received for free and voluntarily.

          Perhaps that doesn’t qualify as rape ,

          but it damn sure doesn’t look to me like sexually neuter pacifism.

          What I wonder about is why such a large percentage of people who were alive , and old enough to remember , now don’t seem to remember that the universal policy in the 1970’s was . ” Don’t ask , don’t tell. ”

          Likewise I wonder why such a large percentage seemingly consistently and predictably gloss over the fact that , despite a popular ( ? ) downright draconian public rhetoric on that particular issue since about 1980 ( 30 years so far )

          never the less , if what MaryV says is true , then a child molester was just elected , or not elected , president.

          Of course the previous resident of Pennsylvania Avenue apparently called his own daughter a hottie.

          And a certain group I’m sure would claim his rise to power was due to some seedy subculture small percentage.

    Almost every opinion on any topic is now supported by some scientist with scientific credentials. The problem is these credentials are no longer worth much.

    Today you have templates for scientific papers that will immediately produce a very professional looking shell. You then write your paper in an obtuse and incomprehensible way but not obviously idiotic. Bloat it as much as possible so a reviewer has to wade through mountains of nausea inducing garbage.

    The reviewer has no access to your experimental setup and often not even the data so how can he reject it? Can he say: the conclusions are too unbelievable, just draw believable conclusions, report results in line with current beliefs. You have a good chance of getting through the peer review process.

    This way you can literally fake everything and it has been done by people getting all the way into Bell Labs before Lucent technology destroyed it.

    And that is “honest” science. Nowadays very prevalent dishonest science in which the “author” and the “writer” are different people. The writers are employees of companies specializing in writing papers supporting preexisting conclusions desired by their clients (pharmaceutical companies).
    After such a paper is ghost-written the company goes around to find a principal author with university affiliation who is very well remunerated to put his name on the “study”.

    This has blown up in the past where such studies supported the safety of drugs which later became a huge problem and the whole process was uncovered in during the legal discovery phase (e.g.transfer of copyrights from the ghost-writing company to the client corporation).
    The “authors” then admitted that they had never seen the data and “went with what they were being told”.

    But this is still not the worst of it. Often entire Journal issues are sponsored by a pharmaceutical company which then even agree to buy hundreds of thousands of copies (resulting in millions of revenue for the publisher of the journal).

    But the situation with SARS-Cov2 is worse still. Now politicians have to look good or save face. What you get is random noise instead of science.

      Watch the 60 minutes episode: They’re castrating little boys. This is what an enemy does to the elite of the conquered.

      • hmuller May 29, 2021 at 12:06 am #

        It’s the Democrats’ position that preteen boys can decide to get castrated without parental consent. In fact, legal procedures trying to stop it proves what a terrible parent you are.

        Tekapo should be very proud to run with such an enlightened crowd.

        Did they show the saga of Jazz Jennings? that is some of the most sick shit I’ve ever seen.

        The mother of Jazz bragged about raping his ‘hole’ on a regular basis in order to get it to work like a vagina. She BRAGGED about it.

        And her wokie friends applauded her.

        I saw videos and articles detailing the absolute torture this boy went through. If he has not truly lost his mind, by age 30, he will be seeking revenge on that monster of a ‘mother’.

        If things have gotten so bad that even the buffoons at 60 Minutes finally feel morally obligated to speak out…..well…..things are REALLY bad.

    • JohnAZ May 28, 2021 at 9:01 pm #

      Covid is an example of how politics can destroy the objectivity of science. Right now, do not believe anything “science” tells you as someone is buying their opinion.

      • Tekapo May 29, 2021 at 12:49 am #

        Being critical, objective, and maintain a light scepticism – these are very valuable skills when consuming media – or indeed anything … but the Republican Party has gone totally batshit crazy – anti-democratic, anti-fact, anti-science, anti-workers.

        I am totally nonpartisan of course, but I’d rather run with Jeffrey Dahmer and Hannibal Lecter than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Gym Johnson.

        • MaryV May 29, 2021 at 10:02 am #

          I have to wonder at this point if you are serious or one of those Poe accounts, because your stuff increasingly reads like parody or satire.

          • hmuller May 29, 2021 at 10:31 am #

            It’s so sad, Mary. Tekapo would be so much happier in a left-wing echo chamber filled with people who all suffer from his dementia. Yet he continues to haunt this forum, contributing whatever comedy a village idiot can provide.

          • MaryV May 30, 2021 at 9:38 pm #

            He actually stated a few weeks ago that he didn’t like hanging out among his own types because they bore him – lmao!

          To Josephine that means taking his jacket to the beach in case the wind picks up later notwithstanding the weather report of sunny & calm.
