Do you know what most of America wants? I will tell you: America wants Daddy to step up and say, “Okay, you can stop being insane now. Really, enough is enough.” Trouble is, America is short on daddies these days. That’s what happens when you throw The Patriarchy on the old garbage barge. Mr. Trump was a kind of daddy, but to many women, especially, he was the wrong kind, Bad Daddy, the worst kind of daddy, the kind who makes you clean up your room and come home before midnight. They traded him in for demented Grampa. He just wants to fondle you — and not in a good way — but family decorum requires that we don’t talk about that. In the meantime, we can do whatever we feel like.

It’s a fact that more-educated folks are most susceptible to mass delusion, and the reason will surprise you. It’s because of status-seeking. Yes, even more than money. We’re hard-wired for it. And status is liable to send money in your direction, anyway. Among the educated managerial class, going along with everybody else is crucial because careerism in a bureaucratic system, public or private, demands it. If you seek to rise in the hierarchy, or are just angling for brownie points, you must appear to subscribe to the reigning beliefs-of-the-moment, no matter how crazy, and the punishments are severe for appearing to not go along— like losing your career and livelihood, and all prospects of a comfortable life.

The main belief-of-the-moment is that battling the invisible menace called Covid-19 requires the most extreme measures, and anyone against that is an enemy, a domestic terrorist! Thus, it is most urgent to “vaccinate” every human being in the nation. Why? Because Dr. Tony Fauci, America’s doctor, says so. Why does he say so? Because the Covid-19 “vaccines” are the crowning achievement in his long vainglorious quest to bring forth a world-saving magic cure for a dread disease. And since Dr. Fauci is The Science incarnate, and The Science must be followed (because…come on… we are modern people in a modern world ruled by Science), we must follow Dr. Fauci!

But it’s obvious now, after a year on-the-scene, that the vaxxes work poorly at best to protect against infection or control the spread, and, at worst, induce terrible long-term damage to organs, blood vessels, and the immune system. The vaxxes can kill you or gravely disable you. The statistics in the CDC’s VAERS registry show this in no uncertain terms: 1,003,992 Covid vaxx adverse event reports including 21,745 deaths linked to them through January 7 — and these figures are said to be deeply understated due to the poor design and difficulty using the VAERS website with its clunky, out-dated code that the CDC refuses to fix.

Dr. Fauci has avoided addressing these adverse reactions and the negative efficacy of the “vaccines.” He simply states that the vaxxes are “safe and effective.” That so many Americans believe him, despite all the evidence, and go along with the crusade to vaxx-up everybody, is proof that they are insane. But now that the whole story is unravelling, they are ever more determined to stick to the script. Covid-19 has been their security blanket for two years. As long as it was in the picture, raging and killing as an invisible demon, it could be the focus of all their free-floating terror.

Terror of what, you might ask? Of the meaninglessness, alienation, and debility induced by the managerial class in its own sick institutions and corporations… in short, the 21st-century America that the managers evolved in and supported — a culture of junk food, junk work, junk art, junk environments, junk government, junk economics, and, lately, junk science… a sickening panorama of systems out-of-control and entering failure mode. Confronting the disaster of its own incapacity to sustain a healthy culture and an economy with a future, the managerial class went nuts. Its insane actions now are killing people while seeking to punish those who refuse to walk sheepishly into America’s version of the gas chamber, the Anthony Fauci “vaccines.”

One way out of a trap like this is to follow your insanity into all-out Götterdämmerung, chaos and destruction. That’s the Hitler way (preceded by a period of psychotic totalitarian social control and sadistic scapegoating). I don’t recommend it. When it’s over, there’s not much left to assist the continuity of the human project. But we are led, at the moment, by a very Party of Chaos that is making all those moves. Check the boxes: social control freakery, check… punishment unto the unvaxxed, check… loony war-drumming, check….

The cries for more lockdowns and punishments grow shrill as omicron burns across the land, presenting a fair chance of putting a stop to Covid 19. We’ll know in a couple weeks where this is going. Will those tell-tale “all-cause deaths” mount in the insurance companies, suggesting that the “vaccines” seeded millions with lurking illness? Will the public turn on Dr. Fauci and run him from public health to rough justice? Will the inept “Joe Biden” regime start World War Three in Ukraine, a place of no real interest to us, or the South China Sea, just to change the channel?

You can feel the paradigms straining to shift under your feet now. For that degenerate managerial class, and its psychotically woked-up minions on the campuses and in the news-rooms, this thing would likely go the Schopenhauer way: the new paradigm is at first ridiculed, then violently opposed, then accepted as self-evident. Snap your fingers and they’ll come out of it, just like that.

The managerial class will try to pretend that they never did the things they did. A few will offer weak apologies. But the damage is done. Before long, an economic rip-tide takes the drowning out to sea. The rest of us left on dry land have a lot of work to do. It’ll be no time for crybabies.

        Mr. Mango

        There is a war going on– a war between our Leaders and all the rest of us. COVID is the smoke screen, Totalitarianism is the goal. Optimism has a nice ring to it, but what then?

        Two things are starkly evident: Our Leaders are clinically and criminally insane. And Our Leaders have a time-tested solution to create solidarity when all else fails. WAR.

        What happens when the target of War, manufactured by forty years of propaganda by Our Leaders, says NO? And has one bedrock principle of its foreign policy—-“Never again will we fight a war on our home soil”? And has developed the defensive and globe girdling technological superiority to enforce its demands?

        What then, you insane American War Hawks? You think the “Enemy” will permit you to install missiles on the Ukraine border five minutes flight time from Moscow after you promised never to expand NATO? Are you not aware that a Chinese hyper sonic missile flew around the entire globe in low orbit, maneuvering without detection by your sensors?

          Thor – O.K., I’ll bite. You said this:

          “Are you not aware that a Chinese hyper sonic missile flew around the entire globe in low orbit, maneuvering without detection by your sensors?”

          If we didn’t detect it, who did?

          • ThorsHammer January 18, 2022 at 9:50 pm #

            Wizard

            My understanding is that the Chinese claimed success after the fact, and the US failed to refute their claims. So the event probably took place.

            My point is that we have entered a new era of warfare in which the backbone of American force projection— the Carrier Group– is as antiquated as horses armored with chain mail. If the US/NATO were to achieve hyper-sonic and defensive missile technical parity the result would probably be an even more dangerous world.

    • Walter B January 17, 2022 at 10:20 am #

      The optimism is that our host and people like Dr. Martin and RFK Jr. are talking about it and spreading the real truth. And even more optimism that they have not been arrested or taken out for doing so by the criminals running the freak show. We need time for the jabs to do their dirty work to the point that even the idiots that took them wake up and/pr die off in sufficient numbers to prove the point. It’s going to happen I assure you.

      • DrTomSchmidt January 17, 2022 at 10:43 am #

        I think the jabs are a bad idea, Walter, but I’m not sure the great dieoff is coming. I do think that the vast number of jabbed people have seen that boosters don’t prevent Omicron, and are now firmly getting off the vaxxes forever train. What happens next is the question.

        If the Professional Managerial class is lucky, they’ll hold onto their ill-earned wealth. If they’re unlucky, they’ll lose their miserable compromised lives.

        • thirdcoastlegend January 17, 2022 at 10:56 am #

          DrTom-

          I have the same worry that we’re just going to grind on with an elevated level of deaths that’s *just* high enough for them to blame on Covid while they manage to ensnare more and more folks into the jabport system until it is an inevitability for everyone.

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 1:25 pm #

        • JojoAnnie January 17, 2022 at 1:55 pm #

          I agree. However with the information out there. We must speak truth and nothing but the truth. The vaccinated have a better chance at living if they stay far away from the boosters. They call the first shots the primer in their studies. Hiding the side effects from us is horrendous. Especially since it’s not licensed. They have been denied patent rights many times due to it Does Not Meet Any Vaccine Qualifications. Cdc lied and after 2 times being refused patents they they actually paid fees on a fefused patent saying they had rights and making money on it. Supreme court exposed this and same time exposed fauci tried the same with same vacc. Stating his failure of HIV vacc patent pulled from him for same reason. I have that case in files. This is an EXPERIMENT. it failed once. They tried again. It failed . They tried again. Boosters. It failed. Now a 4th? Meaning 2 shots each time. Add this up. 8 virus extractef from bats ..test tube ..petri dish. Foreign DNA. From humanized
          bat virus infected rats VIRUS. CELLS. SYNTHETIC . Hydra. Harvested in insects instead of eggs. process DEVELOPED IN AI COMPUTER PROGRAM. Pumped into humans FIRST TIME EVER. To FAIL. over and over. Yes it was to STOP INFECTION. HERD IMMUNITY. go figure they change definition of vaccine try again. Changing difinition again. To meet the FAILURE. saying it’s a possiblity a yearly thing. Is nothing more to cover up the failure. Excuse is immunity wean. No it’s failure. I wish I could upload the real trials confidential reports here. It will BLOW YOUR MIND they giving it to us. Maybe I can find the URL to post. I have pdf files. Can’t upload here. WHO training platform explaining how to scrub the internet of facts and what to replace with. Or Fauci actually had study on what to say to implement and process of taking rights to get people to vacvinate. The WHO plan stating they using vaccines not approved as pfizer vacc. Reason they can’t find issues with the approved vacc. I have these studies etc. Omicron mentioned in study YEARS AGO with delta. Alpha. Etc. WEF list of varients and dates to release. It’s up to date. Video of biden in a meeting telling that white people will be only 40% of what it is now by 2030. . I can prove my statements. I’ll be right back and post what urls I can. Hugs all stay safe . Truth be told. Or able to make own decisions. Hugs

        • SG-71 January 17, 2022 at 9:56 pm #

          Agreed DrTS. My thesis around “what is the endgame here of these vaccines?” isn’t a die-off, though a minor one may occur unintendedly, but rather a perpetually sick populace needing a pill, or a shot, to stay alive… Basically a captive consumer of healthcare. Just like when one becomes captive of government services/welfare that person generally accepts the party promising to help and votes accordingly. Similarly, a captive user of healthcare will demand universal/single-payer… Fauci’s job has always been to keep the government money flowing to industry, and what better way than through gene-therapy conditioning the “perfect patient?”

          • observex January 18, 2022 at 9:13 pm #

            Absolutely. And this has shown us that if 2 years of constant fear of death won’t make fatass Americans diet and exercise, nothing will.

            I’m buying drug manufacturers like Organon and Viatris with U.S. facilities and lesser-risk (lesser backlash) generic and specialty products. American health will keep going downhill, so let’s collect the dividends on that.

        • MisterBimmler January 18, 2022 at 10:29 am #

          The idea that 3 or 4 plus times vaccinated people will suddenly start dropping like flies is comforting. Especially to those of us who’ve toiled under their yoke, lost work, business, credibility. But I’m making that my ‘frosting on the cake’. Because, even if, as David E Martin insinuates, that was a facet of the original scheme- it’s only happening at the margins. I wish I knew someone in the insurance industry to get some handle on that angle. Supposedly they are not paying out on deaths to the vaccinaion or ‘adverse effects’ because health officials and the press will not report the deaths that way. If you control the song the mockinbird sings, you can keep people lost in a fog of anguished befuddlement. And it’ll be the fault of poltiical dissidents like us anwyay, so why should Fauci worry? IF the narrative starts to fray- bang on the war drums harder.Notice how news is 20%Covid 80% evil Russian aggressors v plucky democratic Ukraine (nevermind the SS regalia)

        Except the control freaks are still in charge and trying to find new ways to make our lives miserable. Case in point: Our esteemed prime minister, aka The Good Daddy, Justin Trudeau, has decided to pick a fight with American truckers who cross the border and are not fully vaccinated. The stupid shit is demanding that all American truckers provide proof of vaccination before entering our country. Completely ignoring that one of the major causes for the collapse of Canada’s health care in this pandemic is the demand that all health care workers be fully vaccinated, the shits in Ottawa are doubling down on their failed policies and the results do not look good for the Canadian people. We are told to expect more empty shelves in our supermarkets and higher prices for everything. It was bad enough when he allowed the crypto-fascist government of Quebec to hold the country hostage with its’ demands that they could unilaterally make changes the country’s constitution, which they’re not even part of by choice, but now Little Lord Fauntleroy, having won an election where only a third of the electorate endorsed him, governs as if he were the all-powerful emperor of the north. People are starting to find out the emperor has no clothes and Canadians, known for the deference to authority, will soon run out of patience.

        • Islander January 17, 2022 at 1:07 pm #

          The situation in Canada is beyond awful.

          Especially Quebec seems to have lost its mind.

          One thing I don’t understand is why the provinces don’t have some power analogous to state power in the USA.

          Why are they going along with the BS out of Toronto, and the Little Dictator?

          You have my full sympathy. Things are not yet that bad here in the USA.

          • Anon1970 January 18, 2022 at 4:09 pm #

            It depends on what numbers you are looking at. Chicago recorded about 10x the number of homicides that Toronto did in 2021, even thought the population of each city is about the same. New York City has recorded more deaths from covid-19 than all of Canada, which has 4x the population of NYC.

          I wish I more fully grasped the nuances of Canadian politics. The American media does an abysmal job of covering Canadian politics. Most Americans cannot name the major political parties in Canada and no one has any idea how much support each party commands. It would be interesting, periodically, if some of our Canadian friends here would give the American readers some quick and dirty recaps of what is going on in Canada and why it is that the idiot Trudeau has not yet been ejected from office? Seriously, how badly must the enfant terrible wreck Canada before Canadians pick up torches, pitchforks, and ropes and get to work?!?!

          • observex January 18, 2022 at 9:15 pm #

            Why Canada is docile?

            It is a country of clean-cut, polite pussies.

          I applaud your efforts to even out the odds. With your active life style you probably had a life expectancy ten years longer than average. By choosing the clot shot, opening your cardiovascular system to invasion by the artificial spike protein, opening the gates of the blood/brain barrier to inflammation, and increasing the miscarriage rate of the female members of your family you’ve joined the millions of other victims of the genetic alteration experiment.

      There is a difference between optimism and hope; we always have hope. The human spirit will keep trying to live and thrive. What else can you do, at least on an individual level?

    • Not_GeorgeT January 17, 2022 at 10:33 am #

      No time for crybabies. I’ll add: no time for snowflakes… they, lacking meaningful skills and the knowledge required to develop them, thus they await the washing away.

      A lot of work to be done.

      It is not the first time in the history of this species on this planet, it is merely the most recent example of an economic riptide, with all the accompanying disasters massively disrupting the “way of life’.

      Adapters will have a lot of adapting to do. Here’s some optimism: adapters do exist.

      JHK explicitly refuted what Orwell wrote: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face— forever.”

      There is no forever. Eventually even the boot stamping wears out the stamper. That’s more optimistic than Orwell.

    • Nigel Tufnel January 17, 2022 at 12:20 pm #

      Abe Lincoln put it this way, “The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.”

      Our battle against tyranny will benefit future generations as much or more that it will benefit us personally. It won’t be easy and it won’t be comfortable … no place for crybabies! How many know what it’s like to go weeks without a hot bath, a meal, or a warm bed?

      • CheezusCrackers January 20, 2022 at 12:40 pm #

        Funny though Nigel, i no longer see Lincoln as a hero. Seeing the feds trampling all over the rights and powers supposedly reserved to the states under the Constitution, I’m not sure that the Civil War wasn’t a mistake. Why shouldn’t a state be allowed to secede if the residents of that state clearly support it? Maybe it shouldn’t be an easy process but it now strikes me as villainous that a voluntary union of states was compelled by death and destruction to stay in a “union.” The war wasn’t fought over slavery, we know. And ever since then the feds have been gobbling up absolute powers never imagined by the Founders or those ratifying the constitution.

        • Ubermensch January 20, 2022 at 6:41 pm #

          True that. It’d be as though libertarian states (i.e. New Hampshire) tried seceding from Biden’s America, today, only to be forcefully prevented from doing so by the tyrannical, CCP-captured Fed.

    • DougtheKell January 18, 2022 at 11:07 am #

      The “optimism” may be located in the hopes that ‘pages of music’ being played went discordant.

      I can, for instance, remember Jim Kunstler, several years before Covid post-Great Recession, describing NASCAR attendees culture as consisting of .. “tailgate parties with the swilling of beer by pot-bellied fried cornpone eaters”, basically celebrating, almost-only, the consumption of petro-gallons of dino-fuel.
      And later, “tattoo quotients in Cohoes”.
      Admittedly both very funny, accurate, depictions.

      Later, these types, like Mr. “BBQ, Beer, and Freedom” in Clark County, NV, are now feted as somehow ‘heroes of protest’.
      Types like “Guns, God, & Trump” Scott Presler with his bigoted racism, and poorly-“entrained” parades.

      The “Biggest Theft Ever” was the Great Recession, wasn’t it? Well??

      Some sects do their “Measles parties” despite mandates from decades-past for their children to be Measles-vaccinated, or not allowed to attend school.

      And numerous studies show those recovered from Measles exhibit LASTING impaired immune function against the major pathogens.

      Yet, despite that, that sect’s been able to keep a tight lid on their offspring exhibiting that impairment.

      Is it Taibbi’s “Russiagate” that helps keep that “lid” on, or a .. “Deep State” that says ‘no talk about’?

      You may have seen Glenn Beck caught Covid in April, refused to get vaccinated, and has caught it, Again.

      So much for “herd immunity”, “pages of music, discordant”.

      And in summation, we saw Mobil “tax” the American nation during “freedoms GWB” for much of the Iraqi War, now see unexplained petro-hikes unprecedented.
      & claims of “Inflation”, Matt Stoller pegging that “Inflation” as driven 60% .. by corporate profits.

      Finally! A true cause for optimism.

      On Wed. noon the UK announced that it was abandoning all attempts to continue with it’s failed COVID policies.

      “Restrictions including COVID-19 passes, mask mandates, and work-from-home requirements will be removed in England, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday. Johnson also suggested that self-isolation rules may also be thrown out at the end of March as the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic becomes endemic.

      Effective immediately, the UK government is no longer asking people to work from home. The COVID pass mandate for nightclubs and large events won’t be renewed when it expires on Jan. 26. And from Thursday, indoor mask-wearing will no longer be compulsory anywhere in England.

      The requirement for secondary school pupils to wear masks during class and in communal areas will also be removed from the Department for Education’s national guidance.

      Roaring cheers from lawmakers could be heard in the House of Commons following Johnson’s announcements on masks.”

      https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/england-ends-all-covid-passports-mask-mandates-work-restrictions

      After two years of continuous propaganda it is difficult to believe any good news, but if this isn’t the ultimate exercise in gaslighting it is not just good news but great news! The Pandemic of Fear is doomed.

      However here in the land of the Free Press (USA) I’m betting that any leak of the news into the public consciousness will be fought to the last available keystroke of censorship.

            Takes a special person to work mules……

            You mistreat them one time or ask them to

            do something that will hurt them…….

            And you are screwed for life.

            Fun little fact about mules………..

            They (almost) will never over eat and founder……….

            Where a horse will eat till it kills its self.

            Best thing about mules, they are…….

            Waaay smarter than a horse !!!!!!

            little like in 6 or 7 yrs old……….

            Dragging a field with

            Six BIG mammoth jacks, all abreast

            Big Strappin Blond Mules tooo……..

            She definitely had the gift of workin mules

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 12:25 pm #

            Sounds like we’re more like horses and need to become more like mules.

            The Arabs say camels are similar and will intensely resent the driver who overloads them. If you do, you must make a big show of throwing the load off and stamping on it. Otherwise the camel will wait for the right time and kill you.

          • Nigel Tufnel January 17, 2022 at 12:37 pm #

            @Jarek- Patricia Highsmith wrote an excellent volume of short stories about animals taking revenge on humans. One of the best ones was about a camel who bided his time before taking revenge, just as you describe. I would hope that mules are the same.

          • Nigel Tufnel January 17, 2022 at 12:46 pm #

            Mules are better than horses for trail riding. If a horse gets spooked, it will throw you and hightail it back to the barn. Mules don’t spook as easily, but if you do fall off for some reason, the mule will stay with you so can remount and get back home… assuming that you have a good relationship with the mule.

            Had an old man tell me once about being in a barn

            Full of mules……….

            When he walked past one, its hoof……..

            Went over his shoulder, right past his ear.

            He said to the owner, your mule just tried to kick me…….

            The owner smiled and said………..

            He was just givin you,……. A warning

            They never ever miss.

            I remember years ago reading an article in a tabloid of some kind about a camel that bit most of a mans face off. I forget where exactly, but it was in the middle east somewhere. They are supposed to be ornery critters.

        • Nigel Tufnel January 17, 2022 at 12:30 pm #

          Even to construct the harness takes a craftsman/engineer – for a multi-mule team, even more so. In my community there is a harness maker. He is Amish.

            All harnesses are pretty straight forward…….

            Work harnesses (Plow harness) for

            horses and mules both are simple in design, until you get into the

            Double “D” ring or “backer harness”

            Now the collars….thats an art form, all by its self

      Why was the old America better? Because people received something better – the wisdom of the ages, enshrined in culture, tradition, family, and of course, scripture. But modern man will not receive and being intrinsically flawed as all humans are, he fails miserably.

      Even the rebels received anyway, just by being born then. But they succeeded and began to chip away at the Tradition which made Civilization possible, with each generation becoming crazier.

    An easy trade for any bureaucrat who want to gain promotion and ‘success’ is to immediately trade any hint of idealism — and a desire for reform — in their nature to a low and cunning adaptation to the subtle agenda of whichever organization they have joined.

    Thus, a department of “Public Health” is that only in name. For whatever else it is, the shortest path to ‘career advancement’ within a bureaucratic organization is to hitch your own wagon to money-making train.

    Everything we’re seeing now is the result of that largely unconscious process.

      Junk art? I hope you are not referring to Hunter Biden’s masterpieces, which we are told even outshine works of great ones — Vermeer, Monet, Raphael — and sell for $500,000 — $1 million per crack.

    Cold Cold ashes on the ground
    Nothing lost and nothing found
    Friends and loved ones falling down
    Can’t you hear that mournful sound
    Nothing left but memories
    Of things I still can’t stand to see
    There’s an empty spot in me
    Where my hometown used to be

    This old boat is taking water
    It won’t be long till it goes down
    We’ve had enough to push us over
    Time to turn the wheel around

    Neighborhoods Left to decay
    People died or walked away
    Nowhere left for them to stay
    And we just look the other way

    This old boat is taking water
    It won’t be long till it goes down
    We’ve had enough to push us over
    Time to turn the wheel around

    Waves keep pounding through the night
    Lost without a ray of light
    Going down without a fight
    Is there still time to make it right?

    This old boat is taking water
    It won’t be long till it goes down

      S protein is the stimulus for the inflammatory reaction.

      The heart, or whatever, does not care where the source of the s protein is. Vaxx or virus.

      The real threat of the vaxx is its inability to stay in the muscle of the shoulder as advertised.

      A huge UNKNOWN is if the mRNA s protein connection can create daughter cells like retroviruses and continue to create s proteins.

      • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 12:27 pm #

        Quite so – as advertised. They knew better.

      • TaxDonkey January 17, 2022 at 12:33 pm #

        yes, that’s one of the big questions at the moment. Peter McCullough, one of the guys I trust, seems to think there might be some indication of that. Let’s hope that’s not the case, as humanity from this point onward would have a new protein in its genome, Fauci’s GOF spike protein. Great.

    • MaryQueen January 17, 2022 at 11:43 am #

      Not in the comments, either. I would suspect that a propaganda rag like that only allows bot comments that echo the story.

      • MaryQueen January 17, 2022 at 11:49 am #

  7. mitchellc January 17, 2022 at 10:30 am #

    I’m not so sure fauci, Vax, masks etc are actually believed. Rather, if we get back to first principles, then they provide the necessary war rationale for the left.

    all life forms compete for scarce resources. Family, clans, groups, nations create organizations necessary for effective success

    While pure hate usually provides enough motivation, having a propaganda advantage helps demoralize the enemy, while providing both a moral boost plus allied ID function.

    As for optimism, what’s the point of watching the msm, writing a contra essay, and then having a bunch of high emotionals cling to you for mental support?

    I guess it might have been an ego stroke at first, but intelligent people get easily bored. Why not address the reality at hand and reward yourself for being right?

    • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

      Because we live (unfortunately) in a democracy, and the emotionals are the majority and you have to win them over for things to change.

      It’s the good zombies against the bad zombies. The good zombies are simply those who have good programming. But don’t snort at good programming. It’s what made America, the West, and any and all other civilizations. Or do you expect individuals to start from scratch and reinvent the lightbulb?

    “You can feel the paradigms straining to shift under your feet now”

    For certain.

    Four weeks ago I had a middle-aged African American gentleman visit my shop seeking to sell me some “picks” (I sell vintage clothes). While I never wear a mask in my shop he did, On his second visit a couple weeks later it was the same thing regarding masks. A couple days ago he swung by but this time he came in without a mask. He could see I was consistent. We had a nice chat and it was great to see his smile.

    My point is we counter the narrative by not participating in it in big and small ways. The mindset should be as an observer to the madness and to not engage with it. Hold strong as most are weak.

    • TaxDonkey January 17, 2022 at 12:37 pm #

          I thought about leaving that detail out as I knew even on this blog comment section to expect language patrol or apparently in this case, competition.

          I kept it in though because in my city the only people targeted for vaccination are of color. Mostly African American. Every public service announcement and advertisement for mask wearing features African Americans which is 5% of the population.

          Do you think the decision to create the ads and choose the graphics is done by accident or design? It’s almost like an attack rather than persuasion.

          I just wanted to show human-to-human we have far more influence than what government entities say.

      “a middle-aged African American gentleman”

      ffs man: Reevaluate your programming already.

      To spell it out more clearly. Do you really go around calling people “gentlemen,” or a thousand times more likely, is that honorific reserved for black Americans, because you wanna status signal that you are the good sort of White American who loves values respects all peoples equally, but especially blacks, because you are not a bad racist?

      • D from OR January 18, 2022 at 7:40 pm #

        I refer to all men 20-30 years older than me as “gentleman”. Often it fits their manner as was in the case I described. It’s respect.

        I also call elderly women ladies so I might remark to my husband, “I met this older lady walking a poodle today.”

        Most of the time I refer to men as “guys” and women as “gals” and in fact I prefer being called a gal than a woman (so “ffs man” should really be “ffs gal”)

        I cannot call people that I was raised to call “Mr” and “Mrs” by their first names. So funny.

        It’s habit and vernacular really. I know you wanted to score some points by scolding me but you shouldn’t get so excited and signal your virtue.

        Sometimes that is what one must do, and fuckem, otherwise. As for me, not only am I being backed into an increasingly tight corner as an unjabbed RN, but I just can’t stand the coof charade. Each time I show up to a gig and it’s posted as cov-positive, N95 masks only (and constantly) i just feel like spinning on my heel and heading out the door. One evening, I sort of left my own body and watched myself in full, sweaty hazmat gear replace an ileostomy appliance on a morbidly obese coof patient that was gouting liquid excrement toward my shield. Not quite sure how I did that! I am still chuckling at the comic opera, but also longing for the old way that we used to treat the flu.

        Tired of the covidians. Tired of biting my tongue. Tired of swabbing and being swabbed. Tired of my corporate overlords with their legal and HR departments. Tired of the damn government intrusion. I am looking forward to burgeoning private practices; they are already cropping up, much in demand, like ramps in the spring thaw.

          Hang in there if you can. They need nurses, at least that’s what I tell myself as I have been consistent in my refusal and my reasoning and beliefs for refusing, but I’m kinda sweating it too. There are aways places to work that may have a more relaxed atmosphere, whether you want to work there is a different matter. I wish I had a little more coin, but I’m pretty prepped up otherwise and my niche is take the nursing jobs no one else wants, so there not much competition. I’ll do prisons, mental facilities, rehab all the crazy shit. I do private duty right now, the pay sucks, but I dont have the BS you have.

    Invasion of the pod people. I wish. This whole thing is planned. From the plandemic to economic collapse, all planned. They have an agenda, hell, they even named it, Agenda 21. Read about it, pretty close to “The Great Reset”. The new world order. Same as the old one, more for them, less for you. I would say with a new twist of world depopulation, but it is the same old twist, just modernized.
    The only reason we do not have martial law yet is the 150 million registered gun owners in this country. So they do everything to take the guns away. Not gonna work, hence all the bullshit. Get us fighting among ourselves, they just do the cleanup on aisle ten.
    If they had a half a brain , they would have used a rod of god, destroyed a city, blamed it on the invasion of ET, tell everyone we had to surrender and we have 24 hours to give up our guns or they will destroy another city. Have all your neighbors turning you in for hiding a gun, or just trying to kill you because “ET”, or “Covid” or “Climate Change”, or “The Children”.

      The Great Reset?

      So far, it is not hitting Joe Average in detrimental ways. He does not care.

      So far.

      Now, tax and spend is having effects. Suppressing oil production for AGW is having effects. The Biden administration is mis firing 100% of the time.

      Will the effects move Joe to the point that he reacts? I have my doubts. Here is why.

      The Economic Joe Average has dropped so far that he is more of a gimme more than ever. Have we passed the point where the gimmes just plain outnumber the providers to the point that the Deep State is locked in place?

      2020 sorta points in this direction. Failure of the GOP to take control of Congress this year will be a huge hit.

        “Have we passed the point where the gimmes just plain outnumber the providers to the point that the Deep State is locked in place?”

        The last time I looked, almost 20% of the entire workforce was made up up people directly employed by government at some level. Now imagine what percentage of the workforce is indirectly employed by government. I would guess it is at least another 20%. Add to that the legions of government retirees and welfare recipients, and you likely have a clear majority.

    Speaking of the “Hitler way”, the salt Lake Tribune (a 501(c)(3) public charity for which contributions are tax-deductible) came out for forcibly imprisoning the “unvaccinated” in their homes:

    “Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.”

        I would challenge you to question that. During the height of Stalinist terror, there were signs up saying, “Dare to vote for Stalin”. Were they desperate? When they were rounding up people because of the supposed threat they posed, where they really desperate?

        Emergency is the very life blood of Totalitarianism. Seeming to be desperate follows from that.

      It’s More than one organization.

      https://www.lewrockwell.com/2022/01/thomas-woods/revealed-what-democrats-want-to-do-to-the-unvaccinated/

      Rasmussen just reported the following:

      — 59% of Democrats favor forcing the unvaccinated to stay home at all times except for emergencies.

      — 55% of Democrats favor levying state or federal fines on people who decline the shot.

      — 48% of Democrats favor fines or imprisonment for people who publicly question vaccine efficacy.

      — 47% of Democrats favor a government tracking program to people who decline the shot.

      — 45% of Democrats support temporary relocation to “designated facilities or locations” for those who decline the shot.

      — 29% of Democrats favor temporarily removing your custody of your children if you decline the shot.

      There is no “more perfect union” with these people and 50 (or 57 if your name is Barry O) States may not be enough.”

The behavior was intractable.

          • megabeth January 17, 2022 at 2:25 pm #

          • Anthea January 17, 2022 at 4:51 pm #

            I once worked in an office headed by men. We ladies all liked it because the men never came to work.

          • Anthea January 17, 2022 at 5:30 pm #

            Of course, the job I had where the male department heads never came to work was in city government; they were no-show jobs. The actual supervisor of six female secretaries was a woman, and an excellent supervisor. One of the six female secretaries was a bit of a pill, and the one who sat behind me talked to herself all day.

            I once had a male boss who was in his 80s who was impossible to work for, partly because he was stone deaf, and partly because he was just an asshole.

            For the most part, my “supervisors” were school principals, so I never saw much of them unless one of us had a beef. Some of them were female. Seemed to do an acceptable job with no drama–or at least none that originated with them.

            With co-workers, whether male of female, very often one of them is a real pill. I’ve had a couple of jobs where a low-level male employee pretended to be the manager or department head and began bossing everyone around–and in one case the guy was a new hire. He actually told a subsequent hire that he was the department head. I commented on this to the actual deparment head (who was never there). He told me the guy had been transferred from another store, due to their desire to get rid of him. Anyway, I continued my policy of ignoring the guy, though at one point I told his new sidekick who the real department head was. He refused to believe me at first, as they had a strange co-dependent relationship going on.

            Overall, I don’t think there are fewer problems working with men or having a male boss. There are just different kinds of problems.

          • Anthea January 17, 2022 at 5:52 pm #

            Though I was a stay-at-home mom for many years, much of my career experience was in teaching, plus a little in publishing. This leads to having a lot of summer jobs and temp jobs, so you wind up with kind of a patchwork career.

            I had one summer job as a secretary to a male boss who was actually illiterate; I don’t think the guy could spell “cat.” He was also rarely in the office, and, as it was a two-person office, I took to bringing my crochet projects to work.

            He was a devastatingly handsome devil who had married into one of our city’s wealthiest families. So they put him in charge of creating a home-security department in the family’s telecom company. He was a very pleasant guy, and he looked great in a suit, but he did not seem to know anything about anything. I didn’t either, at that age, so it is perhaps telling that I noticed. He wisely stayed away from the office, hanging out with the engineer in charge of designing the system, where they were presumably “one site.”

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 5:55 pm #

          • Anthea January 17, 2022 at 6:04 pm #

            I had one male co-worker–also pretending to be the manager–who was in the habit of throwing things at female employees: pens, pencils, and sometimes the phone.

            On of the ladies asked me what she should do about this. I told her to call 911, since this was assault. Word of this got back to the guy, and neither I nor anyone else had any further trouble with him.

            One of my daughters has a similar problem when she worked as a waitress while in high school. One of the male servers was in the habit of shoving the female servers into walls–and shoving them pretty hard. She had reported this to the management (male), but they were unresponsive.

            I advised her to call 911. She said that she didn’t want to cause her employer an embarrassing scene, as she liked the job and the owners. I suggested that she tell the manager that if they did not correct the problem, she would call 911.

            In any case, the situation got resolved. Often all it takes is for the perp to hear, through the grapevine, that there is a plan.

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 8:22 pm #

            Yes, as you said the other day, all men are perps or suspects. Those that complain about divorce rape for example.

            Most women would rather work for a man, polls find. It’s a bitter pill (just like the female voting map) but swallow it. It’s good for you.

          • Anthea January 17, 2022 at 8:40 pm #

            @Jarek:

            I have the impression that you live a rarified existence, without much contact with the real world of work. People are very much a mixed bag when it comes to assholery, and it does not seem to be related to their gender.

            I’ve been out of the workforce for many years now. Looking back, it seems like most workplaces were peopled by a surprising variety of looney-toons–which kind of makes you feel sorry for employers. Who to hire? Most people have some temperamental quality that rankles.

            Some workplaces were great fun. I once worked in a gas station where me and the woman I worked with would while away the slow times by practicing our high kicks–and telling the male manager, when he teased us, that we would put ice down the back of his pants.

            Now I just sell soap at the farmers’ market, where there are some vendors (and some customers) who strike me as a little strange–thus adding to their entertainment value. There’s the lady who sells skin care products whose claim to fame is, “My husband is a dermatologist.” There is the Vietnamese produce vendor–Madame All Business, All the Time–who sometimes rails at her husband (a doofus) all day, mercifully in Vietnamese. There are the homeless girls running a booth for some city program–sweet kids.

            I don’t know why I mention all this. I guess my point is that you should get out more.

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 8:45 pm #

            In other words, you’re the one who lives a rarified existence now.

            @ Jarek:

            Yet you seem to have no real-world experience at all. I have mentioned this before.

            Your views are based on polls and second-hand information, from which you draw fanciful conclusions and construct dubious cause-and-effect relationships.

            I have occasionally known people who led such cloistered existences. (Well, a couple of them.) They were trust-fund babies. You always envy them a little bit, until you reflect on their rather drab, colorless lives: no fire-forged friendships or family relationships, no character development that comes of a testing of their mettle, no fire-forged skills.

            There was at one time a trust-fund baby who was slightly acquainted with my circle of friends. I once asked one of my friends if he’d seen the guy around lately. My friend replied, “He could have moved into my apartment and I wouldn’t have noticed.” Total nonentity.

          • Jarek January 18, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

            Not to choose is to choose. Not to engage with the data is a de facto admission she can’t refute it. Instead she goes into her personal experiences – as if they are more trustworthy than a scientific study by a well respected statistician.

            She doesn’t like it. So what. Too bad.

            Anthea: If I read about Whites getting beat up by Blacks constantly, and I choose to be very careful around them and to avoid their areas whenever possible, am I smarter or dumber than the person who refuses to accept the data and has to have a “real” experience before they believe?

        • Blackbird January 18, 2022 at 2:56 pm #

          The co-workers with whom I got along the best were women, intelligent, attractive, young women – with great personalities. Some of whom have even kept in touch two decades since we last worked together. (Several have remained unmarried, while most of the others have since divorced.) The co-workers with whom I got along the worst were women, (somewhat) intelligent, attractive (at least superficially) young women – with awful personalities. So, what sweeping generalizations can we make based on my experience?

          • megabeth January 18, 2022 at 3:10 pm #

            2) Blackbird is very wise.

          • Blackbird January 19, 2022 at 10:47 am #

            Ron is, obviously, the most correct. What everyone seems to be missing is the fact that my worst relationships with co-workers were with women, as well as the best.

            I looked at the map. Nate Silver may have gotten something correct for a change (stopped clocks and all…). But what does it mean? So men, whites, and uneducated choose the capitalist pig, and women, non-whites, and educated choose the socialist pig. I guess the message is: we’re screwed no matter how you slice it.

            Back to the female co-workers… I think part of the secret of my success was that I was always teaching these young ladies to do difficult and dangerous things that nobody else would bother teaching them. Like trailering a boat, launching a boat, gator catching, snake charming, operating a boat or airboat, outrunning storms, recovering an airboat from the branches of a willow head, or refloating a sunken airboat. As one of my female co-workers once told me, “If I’m gonna fuck up, I want it to be with you.” Awww…

          • Jarek January 19, 2022 at 12:37 pm #

    I am still checking in this website regularly, but I find myself turned off more and more.

    I am perfectly willing to entertain the notion that western society is turning crazy. That the authorities handling of Covid has been fluctuating from initial underreaction to panicked overreaction, now mixed with liberal doses of social panic and dissident punishment.

    Yet there is a difference between that and believing that vaccines are “America’s version of the gas chamber”. Billions of doses have been given. Their efficacy has been a disappointment, but if they were net killing people we’d know about it.

      All-cause mortality is up (throughout 2021 and continuing) in the highly vaxxed countries, both compared to the supposed pandemic year (2020) and to the previous five-year average.

      In what way is that not ‘net killing people’?

      • Prospero January 17, 2022 at 12:33 pm #

        Thank you for saying exactly what I was thinking when I read what scoubidou123 wrote above.

        Apparently, the dramatic increase in all-cause mortality during 2021 only measured the first 3 quarters of the year. I expect the last quarter all-cause mortality figures will show an even greater increase in deaths, perhaps as high as 50%.

        It looks like life insurance premiums will soon be going up substantially and soon after that, life insurance companies will be forced to declare bankruptcy.

      We do know about it. Mr Kunstler gives the official number from the CDC’s own site. And everyone who knows, knows that that number is woefully underestimated.

      You’re the one out of the loop, stuck in normalcy bias. Things are far worse than even most of us imagine, what to speak of you.

      So meditate on this: Why does Fauci and the CDC never mention the official number of deaths and injuries? They’ve admitted it’s not effective, now admit it’s not safe and adapt your policies to the Truth.

    • ianw January 17, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

      Yet there is a difference between that and believing that vaccines are “America’s version of the gas chamber”. Billions of doses have been given. Their efficacy has been a disappointment, but if they were net killing people we’d know about it.

      There are quite a few ultra-fringe conspiracists on here who claim that the Covid-19 vaccines are a deliberate plot by some monstrous club of elites to depopulate the world. Nutty.

      Then there are those who claim it’s all been a massive con-job by Big Pharma in cahoots with Dr Fauci – to make a small group a lot of money through mass vaccination with a possibly flawed product that was rushed to market.

      Fauci demonisation is an interesting phenomenon to observe.

      I’m disappointed that the efficacy of the vaccines wane in less than twelve months, but I side with the medical experts and the scientific data – and not with the crazy claims of too many websites that just repeat the same voodoo.

      The vaccines are safe to take for the vast majority, and there is overwhelming data to show that it is the unvaccinated who are filling the Covid ICU beds, despite being a minority of the population. The vaccines definitely reduce the severity of the disease.

      I don’t think the unvaxxed should be vilified or banished, particularly in a context where person-to-person transmission can and does occur between the vaccinated anyway.

      But nor should they be praised as freedom fighters, and all that ideological cheer-leading.

      They are still selfishly clogging up hospital critical care beds and otherwise stressing the nation’s health services. And they are prolonging the pandemic mandates and restrictions for the rest of us.

        You’ve ignored this post twice – please answer it this time.

        https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/19843315.covid-scotland-case-rates-lowest-unvaccinated-double-jabbed-elderly-drive-rise-hospital-admissions/

        “Double-jabbed Scots are now more likely to be admitted to hospital with Covid than the unvaccinated amid an increase in elderly people falling ill due to waning immunity*.

        It comes amid “weird” data showing that case rates have been lower in unvaccinated individuals than the single, double, or even triple-jabbed since Omicron became the dominant variant in Scotland.”

        *re ‘waning immunity’, see EMA statement that jabs and boosters are destroying people’s immune systems, as stated by honest scientists more than 6 months ago.

        **************

        Clearly the excess deaths (increase in all-cause mortality in all highly vaxxed countries) affects the vaxxed primarily. They are now clogging up the hospitals with vaxx-induced heart attacks, clots, strokes, fast-track cancers and other results of the lethal vaxx campaigns.

          You make my point for me.

          The vaccines are effective but they wane – especially among the elderly – but prior to that they are effective.

          And of course there are going to be more cases in absolute numbers among the vaccinated, because they are 90% of the population.

          But it’s clear – the unvaxxed are disproportionately by far going to be in ICU gasping for breath like a landed fish. Any ER doctor will tell you that – and they frequently do.

          • GreenAlba January 17, 2022 at 2:11 pm #

            I did not make your point for you. The newspaper did not say the effectiveness of the vaccines had waned, it said that immunity had waned.

            We KNOW that the ‘vaccines’ destroy immune systems – the EMA has come out and said it publicly.

            “And of course there are going to be more cases in absolute numbers among the vaccinated, because they are 90% of the population.”

            It didn’t say numbers, it said rates. And even if it had been numbers, the Scottish figures show that the preponderance of sick vaxxed in hospital is greater than the preponderance of vaxxed over unvaxxed.

            “the unvaxxed are disproportionately by far going to be in ICU gasping for breath”

            So now, bereft of facts, you are reduced to the hypothetical ‘going to be’.

            Also, with early treatment such as the Fareed-Tyson protocol, or the McCullough protocol, you can reduce hospitalisations by 99.97% and deaths by almost 100%.

            But you have to censor that if you want ‘vaccines’ to be the only game in town. And if you want vaxx passports.

            One has to assume that our resident troll, for example, wants to be forced to carry a passport. Maybe he’s more comfortable as a slave.

          ICU beds are full of deferred problems, not the unvaccinated. At least this is so in my area.

          My mother had to defer cancer surgery for almost six months. She had end-stage COPD, yet when she caught the Kommie Kough, she powered right through it to recover totally.

          What killed her was the deferred treatment for cancer. This was a year ago, during the worst of the lockdownerism. I had to raise the roof so my sister and I could visit her bedside one half an hour, each, each week.

          Even so, the phone-obsessed teenagers in charge of her care forgoot to tell us for about 20 hours that she had become unresponsive. They found her dying in a puddle of bloody shit at shift change in the morning, stripped her, propped her in her wheelchair, moaning, as they changed linens. Then they called us, so a witness said.

          I have blood in my eye for the managerial class, I tell you. And if I ever get a lick in, I’m telling them, “This one’s for my mother having to die alone.”

      Given the crowd I was expecting these reactions.

      Yet, with a population vastly now more vaccinated, the record number of cases of the latest wave has resulted in much fewer ICU stays and deaths, among which the unvaxxed are way overrepresented. Sorry, I regard this as undeniable.

      I agree that to people under 60, the risk of covid is very low. I understand that some people won’t take the vaccine, and I respect their right to do so, even if I think it’s the wrong choice.

    Here’s a theory for everyone to chew on:

    The Criminal Cartel aka the PTB aka Gangster government is currently at loggerheads over the next move. The Cartel members– a kind of criminal enterprise w many members who generally cooperate for mutual profit but nonetheless have distinct and often conflicting interests– are in disarray of sorts. Some members have decided that the Scamdemic con game has played itself out and a pivot is needed to maintain control and perpetuate the mass formation. Thus we are seeing Fauci being set up for classic scapegoating by, it seems, the intel agencies who fed the damaging docs to Project Veritas. Other Cartel members are fighting this effort for whatever reason. We’ll soon see who wins based on whether Fauci and his accomplices are burned at the metaphorical stake or not.

    What happens after that is a mass distraction of shocked and surprised propaganda media while the Uniparty pols pose as our saviors uncovering the deceit of these Faucistas and allowing the Hypnotized to vent their rage against the approved targets. Meanwhile the Cartel continues quietly installing more controls and “safeguards” for our protection natch. The Cartel may well attempt a return to “Normal” where we all pretend that elections matter, that there is an actual difference between political parties, and that everything will be juuuuust fine w more stimulus and free money.

      It could happen that way if we stay strong. But it’s not part of their Plan A by any means.

      To take control and power down Civilization, reducing the population drastically, always was going to mean breaking cover and sprinting for the finish line – which is total vaccination and the QR code for everything. You can’t do that without many realizing it. Thus death camps are in that future along with the Blackrock high rises, etc.

      • Socrates-Detroit January 17, 2022 at 10:31 pm #

        I hope you are correct. That seems to be the “conventional view”, that “the worst is behind us”.

        I don’t think so. I think it’s more likely for the Democrats to double down: “the unvaxxed are straining the system”, at the same time they conjure up with some clever, legally dubious workaround in the Senate, to muddle the voting laws. The Democrat states will hold (NYC is permitting illegals to vote), and the GOP will flip fewer seats than expected.

        Not that the GOP are our saviors–but they are clearly the lesser evil at the moment. Even so, the MSM reports that The Donald is hounding Gov. DeSantis. Is that constructive? Trump’s ego may ensure that he snatches defeat from the jaw of victory. If untrue, the MSM are already working to undercut Trump.

        We will see what happens this Sunday in DC. Will the demonstration be blacked out by the media if uneventful? Will there be some kind of provocation, so the demonstrators can be presented as a “small minority of extremists”?

        RFK’s book, “The Real Anthony Fauci”, is a best-seller, probably THE best-seller. It is studiously ignored by the MSM.

        Then have BS like this:

        https://abcnews.go.com/Health/hawaii-require-travelers-covid-booster-shot-fully-vaccinated/story?id=82307999

        Fraudulent beliefs treated as fact and used for policy. How can a state impede interstate commerce? The audacity of this is infuriating.

        If we lived in a nation where more people had brains and balls, they would say, “WHAT?” and cancel their trip. Or they would say “WHAT?!!!” and not patronize bars in Minnesota/St. Paul.

        But no, the vaxxed either support this stupidity, or they don’t but “shrug their soldiers” and go about their business.

        I think JHK feels compelled to leave a sliver of optimism about “justice” for whatever reason. Sorry, but the system is corrupt. Trump didn’t get any justice on Russia-gate. We are not going to get justice here.

        The mandates may not hold in court–but that take time to stop. A mandate can be “right away”. The witch in NYS says she will make it hard to renew your driver license if you are not vaxxed. WTF???

        When people get fed up and take matters in their own hands, it will be used as a pretext for martial law. Already, the sycophant generals and SecDef view “domestic terrorism” as a “concern”.

        That will make life difficult in the suburbs. Not everyone in this space lives a small town surrounded by farmland, or on a farm with neighbors they trust. Even there, the state can assert control. I think our host underestimates this. The Communists in 1917-1920, the Nazis, Mao, even the (Communist) Vietnamese: they all took over because they were ruthless. They had no qualms about liquidating their enemies.

        Just like today, the PTB have no qualms about letting people die in hospitals. Ivermectin is mostly NOT used, it is much harder to get, and they go out of their way to vilify it.

        Yes, many suburbs are doomed anyway–in the long run. Many don’t have water. Maybe all of suburbia is doomed. By the same token, in the long run, we are all dead.

        It’s early in the game…

      Dmitry Orlov has written eloquently about the Soviet collapse. According to him, at the end the Soviet leaders were literally insane and had to be drug away from their offices along with the furniture. It’s easy to imagine this scenario playing out in the US as well.

    Speaking of hysteria, the governor of my state recently issued another Covid decree banning any elective procedures at hospitals statewide. I mentioned in an online forum that my local hospital doesn’t seem overwhelmed, why would this have to apply to all hospitals? The answer I got from a true believer was that we need those hospital beds in case patients need to be transferred from other hospitals that are overwhelmed. I got to wondering about the numbers, so I looked into it. Currently there are 832 Covid patients hospitalized statewide. So how many hospital beds are there in the state? I couldn’t find a total, but I found a county by county listing and started adding them up. I gave up when it got over 10,000. More than ten thousand hospital beds statewide and we’re overwhelmed with 832 patients. But “what about ICU beds?” you might ask. Well, I had even more trouble finding those numbers, but I did find that there are 650 ICU beds in Seattle alone. So if every single Covid patient is in the ICU (which I seriously doubt), Seattle can handle more than three fourths of them. Something doesn’t add up, literally.

    • TaxDonkey January 17, 2022 at 12:46 pm #

      do you by chance have information on how many of those 832 hospitalized have been inoculated?

      • David Webb January 17, 2022 at 1:21 pm #

        That’s another one that’s hard to pin down, the best I could find was of all hospitalizations in the state for most of last year, 24.5% were fully vaccinated, and 4.2% were partially vaccinated.

    • stelmosfire January 17, 2022 at 3:43 pm #

      Dave, this interactive US Gov site gives the lowdown on hospital and occupancy rates. I check it when I hear on the local news that the hospitals are overwhelmed. All the stats were just updated today. My area is not even at 80% capacity. Even less for the ICU numbers. I call BS on the MSM and their panic numbers. I have heard the hospitals like to be 80% full for economic reasons.

    There are 1,050,000 US citizens of Ukrainian descent who do have an interest in Ukraine. Sylvester Stallone and Steven Spielburg being among the famous ones. According to the Office of US Trade Representatives $2.5 billion worth of goods are sold each year to Ukraine, and $1.5 billion worth of Ukrainian goods are imported, which is not exactly chicken feed.

    • TaxDonkey January 17, 2022 at 1:12 pm #

      Spielberg’s grandparents came from Ukraine so picking a fight with Russia makes sense somehow? Not following the logic.

      However, that is interesting information regarding the trade numbers. US usually has a trade deficit with most nations. what are we selling them I wonder?

    With all the examples of ineptitude, bidet/heels up the most egregious, people STILL ascribe to a small group of “evil” genius’ directing the takeover of the WORLD!!! What total tripe.
    Having “visited” 52 countries and around 20+ states here, the impossibility of controlling a small amount of countries is evident to a thinking person. Sure, dictators rule many areas BUT it’s their country supported by their countrymen.
    The opposite of a crybaby, Hans-Ulrich Rudel was as tough a human as is possible. To get a feel as to what a person can push themselves to, look up Hans Rudel escaping the Russians. His own words. This is how one gets through the coming tribulations although hopefully not quite so the berserker mindset necessary.

    I guess with respect to the main point of depletion that jim was right all along about dramatically reduced living standards.

    However, he seems to have been ambivalent about population levels retracing an arc back to pre 1900 levels of around 1b+-.

    But the big miss, the one that so many could either not see, or dismiss outright because it didn’t comport with a lifetime of programming, were the offensive actions taken by thinkers and planners to remain in charge during the collapse.

    In hindsight it now must seem so logical, so obvious, that one should be torn between the depressing effect of loss, but also hold grudging respect for how artfully it was pulled off.

    When you draw it up today, it becomes clear that it wasn’t just jim and his typically light liberal “yes we can” followers that were on to the truth of the matter.

    Rather a group of ruthless, cunning and savvy operators determined that if the wave was going to crash, then they would be the surfers and the great disenfranchised masses were to be their surfboards. In other words, they were to be lords, and all else the vassals and serfs.

    Once you come to grips with this reality, then you might actually appreciate how perfectly normal it was for them to take steps towards self preservation.

    That’s not to imply you just rollover and take it, but it should help place you in the proper state of mind of what’s to come from both sides.

    • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 1:19 pm #

      Are you sure? In his World Made By Hand series, the technology reverts to the 19th century level, and America is in a state of complete collapse. The novel doesn’t go into it per se, but a vast population crash is implied in every page. On the local level which is focused on, disease has taken a large percentage of the population and the town if full of empty houses.

        I’m still waiting for anyone of any influence to utter these immortal words “Fuaci, you magnificent bastard, I read your book!” Followed by, “Were going to kick your ass all the way back to prison!”

        IOW, respect is given where and when earned. Patton, the US and its Allies weren’t afraid, but they well knew the fight ahead. However, under no circumstance did anyone cry about how they were fooled, or how they had trusted the enemy.

        Jim’s got the talent and audience to be one of the leading figures for our times. Enough of the complaining and self pity. The game is afoot, and individuals need a rallying point.

      That’s funny Mitch. I seem to recall James mentioning Deagals population forecast. I could be wrong…

      • WilbursHuman January 17, 2022 at 5:07 pm #

        The first forecast in 2016

        showed a reduction of 84% in the US……..

        After a HUGE Public outcry, they revised

        them to where they are today.

        And for the Troll…..(Cause I know its coming)

        “Deagel, a true intelligence organization for the US government, predicts a massive 50-

        80% global depopulation by 2025. Few people are familiar with this website and even

        more say the organization does not legitimately exist. Despite the overwhelming

        removal of its significance, WikiLeaks documents revealed that it was legitimately

        used as a reference material in a Stratfor report on the technological capabilities of the North People’s Republic of Korea

        And……………..

        Here is a partial list of known Deagel partners and customers, according to their own websites:

        National Security Agency,

        North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO),

        Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD),

        the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE),

        the Russian Defense Procurement Agency, Stratfor,

        the World Bank and the United Nations

        These forecasts are based on the reconciliation of various publicly available reports

        from institutions such as the

        CIA,

        the IMF

        and the UN.

        Every single DA needs to publicly be asked the question: “You were hired to do what? Oh, that’s right, prosecute criminals within the penalties laid out within the law. And you’re letting them all go now…so…what wouldya say ya do here?”

        And then of course most of them should be summarily shitcanned.

        Except the mayors and governors are playing the same game, so they don’t have a reason to point out how obvious the dereliction of duty in the enforcement of criminal justice has become. They don’t care.

        Cops catch the bad guys, provide evidence to the lawyers. Means nothing if the lawyers then say “eh, let’s give em another chance,” and put them back on the streets to immediately re-offend.

    I would also suggest stop anthropomorphizing certain personality traits, job skills and social habits.

    Both dangerous spiders and beautiful cats result from natural selection; it is only we who establish artificial standards.

    Gnomish beaurocrats developed in environments that selected for their advantages. On an objective scale, they are just as worthy as the types of self sufficient individuals promoted by the right.

    Again, not trying to justify their actions, rather it’s an attempt at clearly identifying who is currently on the offensive.

    “Do you know what most of America wants? I will tell you: America wants Daddy to step up and say, “Okay, you can stop being insane now…”

    Do you know what too much of America wants? Big Daddy aka The Government to take care of them in every way. They want Their Daddy to tell them what to think, what to inject into their bodies, what Nations to fear, and to keep faking ‘money’ and sending it monthly to them so the infantized can sit home in their PJs and order unhealthy food to be hand-delivered to their front door every day while looking endlessly for ‘Likes’.

    Rugged individualism? Showing personal initiative? Finding your own answers on your own without them being spoon-fed to you by billionaires with dark agendas? BAH. Who needs all that what Big Daddy is there to make life so simple and easy.

    “It’s a fact that more-educated folks are most susceptible to mass delusion…”

    It’s also a fact that life in general on this Earth is ALWAYS mostly a delusion. Quantum physics has proven that. All the brainwashing-gone-wild has also fostered that. And again, the desire of some for quick-and-easy answers to be provided by someone other than themselves invites delusion to become the centerpiece of one’s life.

    “The main belief-of-the-moment is that battling the invisible menace called Covid-19 requires the most extreme measures, and anyone against that is an enemy, a domestic terrorist!”

    Calling someone a ‘Dome Terr’ is in itself a massive ‘mass delusion’. While such people no doubt exist, when one accuses most Americans of being such a thing exposes the hand of darkness by those who are beginning to reveal themselves more openly these days. Throwing such dangerous labeling around so freely is not what is done in a civilized population. But when you ‘need’ enemies, you just call everyone an enemy and you have all you can use.

    “Why? Because Dr. Tony Fauci, America’s doctor, says so.”

    Nothing like a career grifter being elevated above the status of heroic Biblical figures in the minds of so many Americans now. More mass delusion.

    “He simply states that the vaxxes are ‘safe and effective.’”

    He has to. His entire career and status has been build around these atrocities and menaces to public health. If the vax goes, so does he and all his lackeys. And we certainly can’t have that. We have entire industries and shines built to this crap.

    “But the damage is done.”

    Sadly, the damage is just beginning. It will echo for generations and has altered the arc of history in ways that we can’t even yet imagine.

    One additional note. Martin Luther King Jr. spent a lifetime trying to convince America to look past skin tone to recognize a fellow human being not a color. But now, we have powerful forces making sure that we never look past color. Again, whole industries and shines have been built to this idea. ‘Content of Character’? Again, BAH! say those who exist to dehumanize each other.

    This Age is not our finest hour.

        Herd/attention-seeking creatures who the herd rejected. If you were 5’5″ and looked like a moleman, you might also end up like Doktor Faust.

    OK, here’s my direct suggestion for jim on how to make a difference and perhaps be remembered as a hero.

    Jim has two core strengths: he knows what’s going on, but more importantly has the communications chops that sets him apart.

    At this point in time, the number of people who have figured out the score number in the 100s of millions, so that’s not an especially novel position.

    However, JHK is literally unsurpassed in his literary and communication abilities. And this is why he just might be the man for the times:

    This stage of the war is being waged through highly sophisticated pyscholical techniques, all of which are dependent on:

    1 who crafts the language,
    2 who sets the narrative,
    3 who controls the dispersal, and
    4 who directs the reinforcing chorus

    1, 2 & 4 are highly vulnerable to an intelligent, organized pointed attack and rebuttal.

    Anyone can quickly scribble down the top terms used to excess by the gnomes. Racist, supremist, terrorist; its both futile and stupid to attempt to counter them. (No, you’re the racist!)

    Rather, we need a crib sheet that IDs their favored terms, suggests alternatives and also provides targeted rebuttals.

    Language is their true weak point. They have a roster of pros working their side, but it only takes someone truly special to dissect their BS and flip it around back at them.

    If only a few million were armed with these comm tools, average citizens could engage with seasoned propagandists on CNN and come away from a victorious encounter.

      Might be true. But it ignores the fact that the Big Lie doesn’t really work on the argumentation level, but simply on pure repetition, with the additional advantage of having the biggest microphone. Especially when the essential message is fear, which it nearly always is. That’s why this whole thing is so very intractable.

      The “battle” for the animal mind was essentially lost in the first 2-3 months. In retrospect, the TP shortage right out of the box was a masterstroke. As a commodity it seems so utterly innocuous, but it struck at some very primal fears. Home, safety, cleanliness, defecation as a basic and necessary bodily function so often totally taken for granted, etc.

      i would love a public, global peak-oil conversation/debate.

      it would pop the cork on all the festering, stagnant blockages and problems.

      i really think it’s the only possible positive global-scale action.

      but, it’s hard to see it as really possible. all the techtopians would blare their insanity at 11, and the public would never get their feet under them to understand the real energy issues.

      unless, someone rose to prominence, a president or extremely prominent ceo… who went on a mission to articulate peak oil to the people and spur that debate.

      sheeple could understand energy issues, but would have to be led and herded there

    (*) “…The majority of the common people loathe war and pray for peace; only a handful of individuals, whose evil joys depend on general misery, desire war.

    But I have long been hearing the sort of excuse clever men produce for their own wrongdoing. They protest that they act under compulsion and are dragged unwillingly into war. Pull off your mask, drop your pretences, examine your own heart, and you will find that anger, ambition, and folly brought you to war…”

      Sadly, the Greek measure was announced first.

      Mitsotakis, the Greek PM, is an alumnus of the Young Global Leaders school.

      He is beholden. In December 2020, the Greek magazine “Crash” cover story was “7,834,000 laboratory rats” about the upcoming vaccines.

      Unlike most news media, the magazine did refer to RFK who is quoted as warning the public “do not take the mRNA vaccines, the effects will be irreversible”.

      Later in the same issue, the magazine talks about the “Great Reset” and has a picture of Mitsotakis at his desk with a copy of the book. Was it photo-shopped? Does it matter?

      The opposition left accuses the government of “risking public health to placate conservative extremist supporters”. It is farcical.

  44. Valevapor January 17, 2022 at 6:47 pm #

    Hey, James. I have been reading your books and blogs for at least 20 years, but haven’t commented here for some time. I stay tuned-in most weeks because you always circle back to your grand thesis – the declining state of America’s civic design and corresponding social dysfunction. I’m less a fan of the increasing political slant over the years. I shall remain independent to the core, and it nauseates me to see how fully fossilized so many of us are by the patently false two-choice system that has come to prevail.

    I remain unvaccinated, and it is not for any political reason under the stars. I have a deep distrust of giant governments, corporations, and any other such insentient monstrosities. The vaccines are clearly not our savior, haven’t been proven safe by any rational/scientific criteria, and to continue such a mass global experiment is truly insane.

    I see an analogue here with the witch hunts of yore, except this time it is not religion imposing its unproven sentences upon the innocent, but rather rational science executing its own sentences based on unproven propaganda. Mind you, I am a very rational person who loves science. However, I realize that there is no scientific proof that scientific proof alone is real…and anyway the whole spirit of science is to always question, dismiss when necessary, and adapt…and ultimately there is just a heap of subjective interpretation involved in understanding science too.

    Getting back to your grand thesis, I think the most important qualities for human beings to nurture in these times are the ability to perceive as objectively as possible, the ability to adapt, and the ability to foster kindness in all our relations.

    • TaxDonkey January 18, 2022 at 11:48 am #

      Agreed that the false left right paradigm has always been a scam. However, what was perpetrated during the Trump years was so egregious that our country is simply DONE if the rule of law is not preserved somehow. The Russian collusion theory for example, made Watergate look like jaywalking and there was no reckoning for that. The distasteful cancel culture, violation of the 1st amendment, the woke philosophy, etc… is being done by those who identify as leftists. If there’s any shred of populist resistance to this color revolution, it’s looks to be people who identify as on the right. Not really the same left/right paradigm as before but hard to escape all mention of politics in discussions about this stuff.

Living together, sleeping in dorms, eating meals together, and working through some serious shit, Like a big dysfunctional family. We were tight. I miss it. Anyway,we were always with the same crew but due to vacations, sick days, swaps, and time off etc. we would often work on different groups.One group in particularly had a reputation as a bunch of crybabies/ whiners. It was not so much the guys on the group but a couple of them had the whole crew convinced that they were being persecuted. Nobody wanted to work with them.

          I would guess that, throughout human history, hundreds of civilizations have risen and collapsed. I doubt if many–if any at all–allowed women to vote. Certainly not in the Roman Empire, nor in Ancient Greece or Ancient Egypt. I think you’d have a tough time showing a historic correlation between women having political power and cultural decline and the collapse of civilizations.

          The cause of collapse is mainly just the advance of State power to the point where social power and individual power have been overthrown: the parasite killing the host.

          The advance of State power produces a wide range of symptoms. Any decline in social power tends to be disadvantageous to women. E.g., social power will normally enforce cultural norms like family stability and fathers providing for their families. As social power declines, the cultural support systems for women deteriorate, so they are inclined to demand that the State provide. There is literally nowhere else to turn.

          In a healthy culture, women wield a huge amount of social power. They tell the kids they aren’t allowed to say “ain’t,” adjure them to “worsh up,” drag their husbands to church, and make sure everyone knows that they frown upon fornication and adultery, and being a layabout or a barfly. In a healthy culture, they can mostly make it stick.

          Nock complained in (I think) the 1920s that the US was “an icewater-drinking matriarchy”–despite being nominally a patriarchy. He didn’t seem to connect that with women’s social power, though.

          Women turning to the State and becoming Statists (aka liberals) is really one of many symptoms of cultural decline–such as a culture where “the women are women and the men are too”–and not a cause.

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 10:53 pm #

            Good post, but cause and effect aren’t one time things. You can’t turn them off like you just did. Symptoms? People die of symptoms and every “symptom” or effect becomes a cause in turn, be it minor, major, or middling.

    • mitchellc January 17, 2022 at 8:56 pm #

      I think you might be spending a little too much time thinking about what happened, and then speculating about different possible scenarios if events had been changed.

      In reality that’s nothing but a black hole, So let me help you out with a quick overview of mitchs guide to power:

      1. In the beginning of civilization, it was simply brute force. (Of course the Japanese kept to this style until around 1850.)

      2. Perhaps with rome, we began to see the emergence of minor reconciliation that included maybe 5% of the people.

      Now, the problem with both 1&2 was that you had to spend constant time and energy on domestic issues, as well as guard against foreign assistance. (Gee, like the French actually beating the brits on behalf of the yankees?)

      The growing awareness of this problem led to the development of republican democracy, literally the moonshot or Manhattan project of its day.

      The genius is that by convincing people they had control, one could get complete buy in by the “governed”. All that was required was an easy to manipulate populace, and effective media control.

      If you place yourself in say 1880, what is the obvious solution to expanding as easily manipulated voter base? Add women, and then minorities.

      In Britain, they actually had to bring in minorities, whereas in the USA we already had a readily available voting block.

      My main point is that if you dial things back and observe the challenges of governance from a thinkers perspective, these events were always going to occur.

      It’s only after a 100 years or so that the rubes wake up and go “wha happened”?

      • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 9:02 pm #

        Yes, the more divided or “diverse” the population is, the stronger the Elite are. So they strive to break the People by diluting them, thus lowering the all important social capital.

        One remembers the delirious joy of German women as they welcomed the million plus Muslim men who marched in without a shot being fired. Now the fools can’t go out at night by themselves.

        Would they have been so happy if a million young Chinese women had marched in, wearing shorts to show off their tanned legs and superb skin? Maybe we would have been the ones out there with the signs and offering hugs. But at least people would be safe at night on the streets of their own cities and towns.

          • Anthea January 17, 2022 at 10:30 pm #

            @ Jarek:

            You notice that there has been no call for Prohibition from women for around a century.

            The reason for that is simple: divorce became socially acceptable. Marriage to a drunk was formerly a life sentence of poverty and domestic violence. Once it was deemed okay to throw the bum out, women discovered that they did not care if the guy drank, as long as he did it somewhere else.

          • Jarek January 17, 2022 at 10:41 pm #

            Yeah Anthea, no such thing as women drinking, right? Or female infidelity? Now at the same level as men’s – which is amazing.

            The deed is done. The Evil Ones know their business, they know human psychology to the last iota. As parasites, they must and they do. They empowered women to bring down real culture, replacing it with what we have now. You don’t like it? You didn’t dream well.

            Buddha: Woe to the society where women gain control.

            Of course they haven’t per se – the Elite are in control and women have played the role that they were meant to play.

          @ Jarek:

          Men failed to be men. They lack the intellectual and moral stature to command even themselves. As men abdicated all social, sexual, moral, and financial responsibility, women were forced to assume masculine roles.

          • JohnAZ January 18, 2022 at 10:58 am #

            Hmmm

            Could there be a reason men quit? Men have two roles in life, to provide sustenance and protection.

            When evolved effeminate societies take away these roles, men, in your words, fail to be men.

            Which leads to collapse of those societies. Men do not abdicate, it is stolen from them. We are witnessing it right now with the demise of the alpha male and the glorification of the beta male.

            I will say one thing though. People want to be lazy in nature. Human progress has always moved toward less work and more play. In America, the gimme society is a result. The welfare state is the result. Things would certainly change if the politico stopped feeding the welfare state and people had to work for a living.

          • Jarek January 18, 2022 at 1:20 pm #

            True, but as the Bible says, women were always going to chafe at their bonds. Would you be comfortable with the way Greeks and Romans kept their women? Or the Muslims?

        NO, that is not the real cause of the ascendency of females, only part of it.

        The hidden reason is a “law” of nature. Women outlive men. They control the capital base of any country. Look at local older communities, look at nursing facilities, who has the bucks.

        Add on the natural falling off of energy levels that comes with the decline of testosterone. All you fifty year old males have a real surprise in store for you.

          JohnAZ, you got me smiling. The “off-a-cliff” of men and their energy, sexual and otherwise, is an astonishing aspect of life today, at least in East Asia, where I’ve lived half my life.

          This stands in such contrast to the women, who keep on barreling along into their 80s in some cases. And such sexual drive! Most of these countries have a thriving gigolo industry – Pattaya, Phuket and Bali in particular. Muscular young farm boys draped in gold chains, wearing designer jeans and Nikes, riding brand-new motorbikes. Huh? Oh those three giggling Japanese women in their 40s, just left on the plane. One’s hospital administrator, another has her own restaurant chain and the third is a media executive. And all NOT MARRIED AND NOT INTERESTED.

          They slip away to Hawaii or Bali to get freshened up on the sly, nobody the wiser. Also some who are married but find they’ve got a big tired baby coming home exhausted, all his vital KI spent at the office, and just wanting to be mothered. Red-hot mammas, and boy do they make the gigolos earn their Baht or Bucks or Rupiah. Here the Muslims are all circumcised so they can go on forever but forever ain’t enough for some of these 55-year-old cougars. Amusing.

          The men? Tired, overweight, distracted, dull and certainly no big sexual appeal. I except the dwindling class of farm-folk: those guys keep in shape. You’ll see a wiry 90-year-old Okinawan out hoeing the hell out of his sweet potatoes and downing half a liter of shochu a day (a glass would knock you or me out). But they’re not necessarily sexually active.

          It’s the women. Staying power. Look at Attila the Hen and her standard-issue suit of a hubby. Denis the not-so-menacing.

    It’s one thing if membership in the professional managerial class requires affirmation of belief in things that exist, that have some basis in reality and reason and logic, things that you can see for yourself and know that yes, this is for real.

    But it’s otherwise. In the vast sweep of human history, the modern-day PMC are the George Costanzas of ruling elites, whose whole life, by his own admission, was a lie. Their central precepts are lies, their way of life based in lies, ways of doing things that don’t work, that on their face are irrational. The more bizarre the assertion, the more centrality it has to their belief system, the more tenaciously they cling to it, insisting on its unbendable truth.

    You could spend a lifetime cataloguing the nonsense, making lists, writing histories and analyses and commentary. But who has the time and what would be the point? Maybe as a warning to future generations, assuming the tomes wouldn’t be tossed onto bonfires, the authors persecuted, prosecuted as terrorists, canceled and written out of the historical record, ‘non-persons’ as Orwell would say.

    The hell of it is that the craziness the PMC inflicts has real life consequences, deleterious for society at large, corrosive to the nation state, disastrous for individuals, and without exaggerating, has every likelihood of ending that long train of thought and behavior that we call Western Civilization.

    How did things get so far? On this side of the world it was the existence of two wide oceans that shielded the polity from consequences of their own absurdity, letting manias in the world of ideas run rampant without nearby rival powers to exact wrack and ruin when they saw the insanity. IOW when you feel safe you get sloppy.

    On the European side it’s different, orgies of killing came out of their crack-pot religious and political and economic ideologies and intellectual ‘isms’ with the necessary result that Western Civilization is done over there. I suppose they felt safe and out of this complacency came catastrophe. So, it had its run. It’s over. Something will take it’s place.

    Here Western Civ still twitches. But, to look at it dispassionately, it self-evidently is trying to self-destruct. Why this would be is mysterious, maybe a form of civilizational senility, or a collective belief that what went before no longer has any use. But maybe this belief is mistaken, the product of dire errors in perception and reasoning.

    Or maybe our PMC, instead of being the best and the brightest, are not nearly that, brought to the top of the hierarchy as a result of chance events, or maybe malfunctioning societal systems that failed to select the fittest.

    Is this mess salvageable? If it isn’t, the question is how does it end, because, by the evidence of your own eyes, you know this can’t go on. The world doesn’t abide unreason, especially on this scale.

    The date given for the fall of the Roman Empire is 476 AD, that of its Byzantine successor 1453. What about us?

    • Anthea January 18, 2022 at 1:28 am #

      Civilizations rise and fall. This has happened hundreds of times throughout history. We’re living through a civilization in its death throes. There has never been a single historical instance in which this death spiral has been reversed.

      Depopulation seems to be the usual outcome when civilizations collapse. General lawlessness makes people unproductive. Why grow crops or bake bread, if you will be robbed? Commonly there is some kind of pestilence going around. The next thing you know, there is outside invasion.

      You can look at graphs showing the massive depopulation of Rome towards the end of the empire. I always kind of wondered where they all went. Many probably migrated to Eastern Empire. Some probably holed up in the country somewhere, maybe in what is now France.

      We seem to have few options for getting out of Dodge.

        This is something else Anthea. This is the purification of the earth. Man made terror, war, mark of the beast.
        Gods intervention with massive natural and unnatural disasters.
        The reign of the Antichrist.

        The few that survive will have been washed clean in the blood of the lamb.
        The martyrs chosen will be brought back to life.
        The marked will be forever destroyed.

        After the collapse of the economy and confiscation of property,
        The sorting and the war begin.
        The Antichrist stops the war.
        The sorting involves choice,
        Who by famine?
        Who to captivity?
        Who by the sword?

        Those who have faith, and have been purified by putting away their pride, vanity, all sins by admitting them to Christ Jesus and imploring His grace in combating their faults, for none can do all by their will alone, will be saved.
        They may not live through this, but they will live eternally.

        Without humility, we have no chance.

        All you have to do is ask for mercy, and help, and it will come.
        Ask for faith. Ask to survive if it is His will. Pray for others.

        • Anthea January 18, 2022 at 8:22 am #

          I think you can make a pretty good argument that these are the End Times. I see the book of Revelation as mostly descriptive of the cyclical collapse of civilizations, which has occurred many times in the past. I once mentioned to a priest that I thought a particular prophecy in Revelation referred to particular current events, and he told me that this had already happened a couple of thousand years ago in Ancient Rome.

          The main argument that these are the End Times is that we have never before experienced world-wide collapse. In the past, collapses have been local events, even if, in the case of Rome, there was a large geographic territory that was impacted. Most of the rest of the world barely noticed, if they noticed at all. There are some other good arguments, such as the Mark of the Beast stuff.

          I do agree that what we’ve seen over the past couple of years is Satanic. There has, on the other hand, been a lot of Satanic activity over the past few millennia, so it’s hard to feel confident that this is something out of the ordinary.

          People have believed they were in the End Times many times in the past. And there were many times in the past when things were a lot tougher than they are now.

            my preffered interpretation of the religious tradition that began with the jews and flowed into christianity is as an opposition to the complex-civilizational development of the period coinciding with the religion.

            an opposition to “babylon,” to intensive-agriculture-driven, growth-focused, standing-army-having, empire-aspiring civilization…

            the culmination of which is our own tech-empire

            so, in that sense, these could be the prophesied end-times… when babylon is finally defeated

            Anthea, if you are with Amman, that the ptb know the prophesy and are just using it, it goes to the fact that in the end all things work in favour of the divine. So that is saying, the mark to buy and sell, luciferase, the highly documented 666 in patents, governments etc, the collusion of governments, corporations and organizations to cull, control and destroy the whole economy of the earth. OF the earth., is Not a sign of the times foretold, I would suggest you go study that book of revelations again.

            Certainly it is another collapse, by Jims means, oil, by government means, jab, war, policy. But is much more, and time’s awasting.

        c535 AD is the year civilization collapsed, first waves of bubonic plague decimating the population of W Europe, volcanic eruptions in Sumatra blotting out the sun plunging world temps and causing famine, cities abandoned in Britain, total liquidation of Rome in Italy, Constantinople under siege by Asiatic hordes from the east … 500 years of Western Civilization at an end, not to return for another 500 years. If one looks at video coming out of NYC, Chicago and LA (and many other US cities too), one can assume that civilization has hit a roadblock in the USA as well.

        I was a little surprised to see this week giant, 50 ft. tall Social Justice murals unveiled in Norwich, Bristol and Hartford, which included visages of George Floyd, Obama, MLK etc. These murals look permanent. Within living memory these cities were prosperous, orderly, productive market towns and manufacturing centers; its astonishing how quickly they have been transformed into squalid, dysfunctional, 3rd world welfare colonies. That’s how quickly civilizations end.

          From 165 to 180 AD. the Antonine epidemic clobbered Rome. Brought by legions from the east, it killed 1/4 of the Roman empire, including one of two co-emperors and maybe the other. It is thought to have been small pox co mingled with measles. It was documented well by Galen, an MD who was helpless to do anything about it except watch people die.

          I wonder how many folks then thought it was a hoax? It is interesting that here we are 1800 years later, and still pretty helpless against viruses, that are not even life, or in some minds, do not even exist. The only difference between now and then is the mortality of Covid is not much compared to smallpox. FYI, smallpox wiped out the eastern Native Americans and the Aztecs when the were exposed to European peoples.

          Mother Nature is in charge, in spite of human arrogance. So far, the fight against Covid does not seem to be getting anywhere as its ability to mutate is faster than our ability to kill it. The ambivalence of some and the politics of other may be driving us toward a cliff such as in the past.

          As BRH said, the Plague pretty much wiped out what was left. Both then and now, the result was a wipe out of the urban centers and dislocation back to an agrarian mode of life. The ruling classes were decimated to a fortunate few and what their was of a middle trading class all but disappeared.

          Continued Covid activity could have the same effect today. People who believe in “let ‘er rip” may get their wish by default. Especially if the vaxx is doing the damage it seems to be doing. Genetic advantage made survivors in the past, we may get to that point.

        I would put money on death from starvation of the urban population in a lot of cases. I would bet that the farmers fared relatively well.

        The new lords of the manors that gave the former Roman overlords the boots would have known not to mess with the farmer and his planting and harvesting etc. because otherwise the new overlord starves too.

        Interesting idea that a civilizational decline or collapse has never been reversed. I think you’re right. Prolonged maybe but never reversed.

        Women, “the (mis)educated” and minorities are all allies. They all vote blue. They are all enemies of the real America. In a few traditional states like Idaho, women are still on the straight and narrow. But the incomers like Mary mean to change that.

        Minorities all vote blue and by themselves would turn America, Democrat (Communist). Hispanics may be changing. Will it be enough in time? Doubtful. And any special pandering to them by the Republicans will just utterly disgust the already alienated Whites. If they were wise and they really wanted to save America, they would focus on the Whites and let the Hispanics who have seen the light join us.

        But very few Republicans are wise and/or want to save America.

        Typical female response. Drunk men are the root of all evil.

        I was raised in a typical suburban setting. Hidden in the society was the fact that just as many women were PM drunks as were the men. Too bad they never learned to do it together.

        Addiction is a sign of the times for American society, alcohol, marijuana and drug usage prevails as real life pursuits are destroyed.

    “It’s a fact that more-educated folks are most susceptible to mass delusion, and the reason will surprise you.”

    I believe it is because of 20+ years, spanning well into adulthood, of being told what to think.

    This old liberal once again is stunned, yes Russell Brand on youtube now has more evidence that the covid did come from the lab, and more biologists are claiming it looked manmade. Incredible the corruption of our systems is so disheartening. I know JHK has always claimed this, but more outside folks and groups who are “liberal” are stating these dark truths. That’s it, I am going out to buy a lottery ticket.

    • Night Owl January 18, 2022 at 3:26 am #

      Something came from a lab, because the phony PCR test was developed by Christian Drosten in Germany with a computer model of segments of what was said to be the virus.

      Since it has never been shown to have been isolated and purified, and since the PCR test cannot detect “cases,” there is still no hard evidence that Covid-19 is anything other than manipulated statistics.

      And now that we have hard evidence of manipulated statistics, I would say the answer has more or less prevented itsefl.

      Either way, this is the greatest hoax in human history, the aim of which is to usher in the digital ID and currency — full control for the DAVOS/bankster crowd.

        Yet some scientists on our side believe there something new there.

        They obviously got over on us with fraud by and large. So I stand with the German school for the most part. But there is room for doubt on the reality of the covid in and of itself.

    There is a lot of ominous stuff happening right now. I noticed a tiny billboard today. A picture of a young woman probably early twenties. “Gone too soon.” and “We’ll see you on the other side” stayed with me. Could have been anything wasn’t clear but it was the first time seeing anything like that in that particular location. Almost missed it altogether at first it was in such an almost hidden out of the way spot honestly. Lot’s of 30 and 40 yr olds in the obits. And now there is new talk about the human mad cow disease scenarios possibly becoming reality because of the spike protein. Where is it all going? I guess this all may be why voting rights are suddenly as urgent as they were in 1955 or something like that, and yes also why the border security of Ukraine is like way more important than dealing with an essentially uncontrolled explosion in violent crime in our own cities. It’s their show so they can change the channel whenever they want and so many don’t think twice. Brilliant.

          First off, it would be nice to know for certain that the vaxx is the culprit.

          Second, what is the mechanism, people are dying from the vaxx but from the virus too.

          All I hear is continuous mumbo jumbo about problems after the vaxx with no real explanation.

          My number one question that needs R&D, why athletes, why tennis and Soccer. Why not NFL and NBA?

          Did the vaxx designers make a process that discriminates against these two sports? Uh huh!

          • JohnAZ January 18, 2022 at 12:00 pm #

            The evidence being presented says that an inordinate % of these sport participants get myocarditis.

            Do they have increased numbers of blood pressure control ACE2 receptors in their blood vessels, do they just have more blood vessels in their hearts to have the stamina they need? Do they have more blood vessels in their shoulder muscles that would complicate the jab?

            Heard any good discoveries about Covid recently? I thought not.

            Yeah you’re regressing. The spikes are very dangerous and the vax if far more systematic in its production of them than the virus. That’s all you need to know. If you want to know more, fine. But don’t lose the basics.

            If someone forgets addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, they’re going to have a really hart time with algebra. Or if they lose algebra when they try calculus, they’re going to fail at calculus.

            I ask real questions, there are no answers.

            Believe what you want, so will I. My mind is open and waiting for answers which I agree I may never get.

            Yours are hide bound and based on conjecture and opinions that have no more substantiation than the opposing side.

            You say you have never seen a virus isolated? Then I guess all the people in 2020, before the vaxx, died or got sick in their imagination.

            One simple question again?

            What is different about tennis or soccer players that allows them to react to the vaxx with myocarditis? Maybe all athletes? Or even all young men, why them?

            “You say you have never seen a virus isolated? Then I guess all the people in 2020, before the vaxx, died or got sick in their imagination.”

            Do you ever look up anything after getting a response.?Have you looked up excess mortality for that period?

            Now use your brain and combine that with what we know about the fudged statistics (false attribution between with/from Covid, etc.), the useless PCR test, etc.

          Many stories being published of people that were anti-vaxxers getting a serious dose of the crud and “wishing” they had gotten the jab.

          Here is the conundrum of the whole damn virus vaxx situation.

          Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. These folks were just as insistent about not wanting the vaxx as anyone here. Until their juvenile, “It will never get me”, attitude changes as they get the crud.

          The real problem is, there is no defense to a good transmitted dose of virus. Someone who says that they have never had a virus is a superman or a liar.

          When mission impossible exists, everyone, both sides start pulling stuff out of their butts.

          There is no solution to Covid, take all the supplements you want, someone blows snot into your face with a virus load in it, you are going to get it. THAT is the realization these people have when they talk the way they do.

          Problem is, they are directing folks toward a “solution” that may be worse than the problem.

            One thing John: Aristotle said, never demand more precision from a subject than the subject itself affords. Biology is never going to be as exact as physics and physics is never going to be math.

            Science studies what is on the physical plane. As to why it is, or why it works the way it does, that’s a whole different question, closer to Philosophy or even Theology.

            Why does the heart beat? It’s a mystery. The mystics will talk about the life force and Theologians about soul, a share of God’s life.

            You are right. If Ivermectin works for some people it is worth a try, it has little problems associated with it. I believe that most of the problems that are causing the jerks to discredit it are probably misuse problems.

            Why antivirals rather than vaxx are discredited almost immediately is either a mystery or the biggest con job in history.

            Antivirals are the answer.

            I find it suspicious that prominent anti-vax people seem targeted. That way the media can celebrate their deaths and all the covidiots dance in glee.
            Either they are being given the virus in some other way than having a sick person sneeze in their face, or they are being poisoned with a drug that causes multi-organ failure and the media just tells us it is covid.

            Night Owl linked to a Twitter story of ‘Karim’ a crisis actor photographed in three separate French hospitals saying he wished he’d taken the ‘vaccine’. I wonder how many more hospitals he was in.

            I agree there are stories every day on the msn page when I open a new tab on my laptop. They’re all saying the same thing. How do you know they’re not all Karims? The desperation is oozing off the page. Get more people vaxxed before even more find out what’s going on.

            It really upset me to see a story (true or not) that said the unvaxxed in Quebec were flooding to centres for their first ‘vaccination’ because of the tax on the unvaxxed.

            That’s worse than people selling a kidney to buy food. You can live a long time with one kidney.

          • MaryQueen January 18, 2022 at 9:56 pm #

            Good points, all. And let’s add, that the ones supposedly claiming they wished they’d gotten vaxxed can’t be verified.

            BUT you can verify each and every claim on social media of a vaxx injury or death. Because all of them include all their information, their real names, etc. and many of them are fighting in law suits or for medical attention.

    To be enthralled by one’s own life is the average fate.
    To either despise or cherish others’ life is the exception.
    Those who despise the life of others now have the upper hand.
    Fight ’em, if you must.
    In time, your party will regain the upper hand.
    And then, lose it again…

    We’re all patina in the making.
    (Some will never recognize this.)

    One should deal with thoughts as a lapidary do with precious stones: before exposing them, a meticulous and well planned cutting must be executed, until their most exquisite form is attained. Even then, most thoughts will never be more than an ersatz.

            @ Jarek:

            That’s what Alan Watts said in “Behold the Spirit.” Sounds like it’s probably true, but I’ve never been able to work it out in my mind.

        You want to travel on a big river. You make the effort to row out at past the reeds and the shallows. Once you are out in the middle the current can take you. Make effort to be worthy of grace. And then wait for it.

    The non-philanthropic elite. smug in their $177 million dollar Malibu and Martha’s Vineyard enclaves, shall experience the wrath of the slighted pitchfork and torch class, as the elites’ properties are summarily looted and torched, with the former guardian class joining in the festivities.

    The elite cannot neutralize the enraged commoners faster than they are entering the foray.

    I am NOT advocating it.

    Encouraging ALL to maneuver away from it, and devote ALL Time and Energy in building OUT the localized New, with sustainable, regenerative food, water, and energy supply chains.

    GODSPEED!!

      Yes, it would be nice to be part of community that was deliberately moving in that direction.

        if peak-oil awareness became more widespread now, these communities would spring up everywhere, begin to solve their own problems

        many would fail by being too ahead of the curve, and adopting too many false assumptions

        but i dont see the harm

    Been waiting impatiently for Dave Collum’s Year in Review, Part 3. Still missing. So, I checked out his Twitter via the Internet. Check out the link. I hope I didn’t screw it up.

    Jarek: the point I was trying to make was that like a drug dealer pushing the first free hits, the offer of a republic vs monarchy always had a catch.

    And that is the commoners we’re never going to have actual control. It was always in the cards to dilute effective voting power. They just never bothered to tell anyone, because after all, that’s the essence of the con.

    So when you go on and on about women, minorities, national socialism, etc, we get it; you’re right. But what you’re not realizing is that if society and economy weren’t going to be destroyed via democracy, then you would have remained a serf anyway.

    Get it? I hope you do, because the constant negative complaining is tedious.

    OK boys & girls gather around to hear my covid story.

    All day Sat I was feeling tired, but had no symptoms. That evening after dinner, I developed a fever, which came on pretty strong, and broke around 11.

    I slept through the night, and then spent all day Sun napping on the couch. I has dinner, but was still feeling pretty tired so went back to bed.

    When I awoke Mon, I could tell it was all over. 36 hrs laid out, with not much energy to do anything but slouch around and sleep.

    I’m pretty active, so a good tell is whether I have enough strength/desire to go for a run, play a round of golf, etc. I could have Mon, but was still feeling a bit weak.

    Now it’s Tues, and it’s like I wasn’t even sick. Im ready to get out and do whatever I want. What’s weird is that I never developed any significant respiratory issues, which makes it different from a cold.

    • SoftStarLight January 18, 2022 at 11:10 am #

      I’m sure if anyone has a differing opinion from yours they will be shot

    • mitchellc January 18, 2022 at 11:14 am #

      In the interest of full disclosure I should mention I’m convinced I had the original version in Feb 2019. We had just got back from NYC and had attended a personalized chef presentation served communal style.

      That one did develop respiratory congestion, but not any worse than colds I’ve had in the past. 15 months later, May 2020, I think I must have had whatever variant was going around. That one was feverish and achy, but never stopped me from staying active on our house remodel project.

      So there it is. Oh, I’ve never been tested. I refuse to participate in some marketing scam by accepting newly invented labels for what used be called “getting sick”.

      • MaryQueen January 18, 2022 at 1:03 pm #

        Covid is a made-up disease created with marketing and branding, and sold to you by WHO and WEF

        • Jarek January 18, 2022 at 1:39 pm #

          McCullough and others believe something was actually made, thus his protocols on how to deal with it. Of course a lot of the protocols would be good for anyone with a cold or flu. So that they work is no proof that the person in question has covid. But the existence or non-existence of covid per se, is another question. Maybe It did exist, but not longer.

          • malthuss January 18, 2022 at 5:40 pm #

            Wu flu, a synthetic flu, to kill you.

      • Islander January 18, 2022 at 1:39 pm #

        Probably this time around you just had some other bug.

        I know, there is much more drama surrounding covid, but only the jabbed get to make covid encores for the peanut gallery.

        Purebloods, just one.

        • Jarek January 18, 2022 at 1:40 pm #

          Yeah, let the poor fools have something for their trouble, and boy are they in trouble.

        • JohnAZ January 18, 2022 at 1:53 pm #

          Remember when we all got something during the winter, flu, a cold? We did not know what it was, flu or cold as virus reaction could be either or a hybrid of both.

          Rules of the road were, Tylenol for fever, never aspirin, esp kids, decongestants , and wait it out. Do not bother the doctors with viruses, there was nothing they could do anyway.

          Then the flu shot. It helped out some seasons, not so much others.

          We tried to prevent them, supplements, fresh air, wash hands, keep warm.

          Colds still happened, lots of colds.

          Omicron is probably just another, earlier COVID’s being novel and causing immune overresponse. It does attack lower in the lungs and other organs in susceptible people.

          It is not the end of the world. It is real!

    • mitchellc January 18, 2022 at 11:16 am #

      One last observation: it’s hard to really grasp the totality of our current situation from just getting sick.

      It’s obvious it’s just a vehicle for the real agenda.

      • JohnAZ January 18, 2022 at 11:41 am #

        I remember having 24 hour flus and colds forever. They show up, you feel like crap, then they are gone overnight.

        Hmmm, could it be that these very under reported cases were viruses like omicron covid that for most folks never take hold and the immune system reaction in killing them in 24 hours is the fever etc that we feel?

        Or could it be that they are the very short term reactions our immune systems react with to viruses we have seen before? See a polio virus? Immune system kills it, we feel bad for a day?

      • JohnAZ January 18, 2022 at 11:45 am #

        As I said earlier, we lose both ways.

        Vaxx or no vaxx, both have their problems.

        No vaxx, get the crud bad? Too late!

        Vaxx , adverse reaction, long term effects? Too late!

        Just like gambling, play the odds.

          Succinct, poetic roundup, JohnAZ. Good show.
          I like to think that I managed to reset the odds by getting a set of Sinovac shots (obligatory, to renew my temporary “business visa” here in Indonesia).

          Sinovac is a “true vaccine”, created from weakened or dead viral material. On the down side, I may have received a complementary dose of graphene joy, which is reportedly not the healthiest item to have coursing through your bloodstream. No problems so far.

          I am a retired motorcycle road racer. During my riding career, in the 1960s, race courses were mostly closed public roads or some approximation thereof (Isle of Man, Dundrod, Sacramento Fair Grounds, Suzuka). The chances of serious injury or death were high (but not as high as in F-1: in an interview on YouTube, former champion Jackie Stewart estimated the fatality rate for drivers in that era as one-in-three). Race meetings tended to be sober and intense, as competitors thought out their race strategy and focused on each turn beforehand.

          What has apparently changed is that rider / driver safety has – not unnaturally – become a Big Deal, and I say “Great. Good for the pros to have made the sport safer”.

          Competitors do, however, seem to have assumed that they are going to escape serious injury, on circuits with vast gravel traps, air fences, heli medevac and superior running gear. But, as the portal to British circuits used to advise, “Motor Racing is Dangerous”).

          It is noteworthy that today, when someone gets seriously hurt or dies in a race there is an element of shock and bewilderment that we never succumbed to. All the fun has drained away.

          This brave, skilled young guys seem to assume they are going to live forever. Is that an acquired attitude?

    • JohnAZ January 18, 2022 at 1:55 pm #

      Remember that what you had was immune response, fever, fatigue. Something got into you, and you killed it.

    • TaxDonkey January 20, 2022 at 12:34 am #

      Mitch, i had pretty much the same thing the exact same days. Add headache and scalp sensitive to touch. Ditch the golf part, that’s not going to happen. I guess it was Covid, doesn’t feel like it came from nature somehow.
