If Quentin Tarantino made a James Bond movie, the villain would be a maniac named Klaus Schwab, played with a light touch by Christoph Waltz, leading a SMERSH-like org bent on turning the world into a utopia of robots, and, of course, absolutely everything would go wrong, leading to a joyously comical bloodbath in the climax. Are we living in that movie, one wonders?

In real life — is there even such a thing anymore? — Klaus Schwab is the octogenarian head of the World Economic Forum (WEF), the NGO that hosts the annual cavalcade of global villains at Davos, Switzerland, held every January in perfect designer snow, with the raclette melting temptingly on the hearth, endless flutes of Bollinger R.D. Extra Brut making the rounds, and plenty of pretty young things on hand, only some of whom know a reverse repo from an Appenzeller Sennenhund. Must be fun as all git-out.

The Davos meeting is ostensibly called to improve the state of the world (ha!), and thereby inspires countless paranoid fever dreams in the minds of many who would prefer to be spared utopian social experiments, especially from plans drawn by billionaire bankers who view the present surfeit of mankind on this planet (some 7.6 billion) as cluttering up the joint — all these unnecessary hoi polloi filling the oceans with their yukky plastic, making navigation difficult for the Davos yachting crowd… or something like that.

Klaus Schwab has been shockingly literal about his wished-for utopia, summing up his vision as, “You will own nothing, and you will be happy about it.” Hmmm, no property… and then what? Logically, no corpus of contract law to regulate it?  Farewell pesky US constitution. (Let’s face it, it’s been falling apart lately, anyhow.) How’s that going to make folks happy? Can I at least keep my Waterpik and my flyrod?

And what about your property Klaus?  And the property of your nonagenarian buddy George Soros, including all the cash money he’s been sprinkling around the USA to fund the election of utterly incompetent Attorneys General and District Attorneys, so as to sow chaos in America’s streets? What about your pal Bill Gates’s property… those hundreds of thousands of acres he’s buying up across the American grain belt? And the half that goes to Melinda under California divorce law. Will the poor girl have to make those dreary trips to the Safeway on her own?  Will there even be supermarkets? Or just distribution depots like the old soviet glory days, with long lines for schmoozing?

A few other particulars from Klaus’s 2030 agenda: No more meat-eating for you! It’s a waste of energy and a carbon spewer. You will eat artificial “plant-based meat” from Bill Gates’s soybean fields, self-propagated like giant boneless garden slugs on Bill Gates’s factory walls. Pass the Sriracha, Klaus! Next, no more national borders. The teeming poor evacuating their wretched overpopulated homelands must be free to overpopulate your homeland and make it equally wretched. Of course, no more fossil fuels! The planet is overheating so badly that there may not be any snow in Davos, and the Davos elect do not intend to don lederhosen and march up and down the bare Jakobshorn ski trails yodeling like goat-herds.

There is considerable unease among the sentient hoi polloi about the WEF exercise going forward this summer called the Cyber Polygon simulation. The idea is to game-out a cyber-attack aimed at bringing down the global financial system.  The reason folks are nervous is because the WEF held a somewhat similar simulation in October 2019 for a hypothetical pandemic disease outbreak, and, guess what? We got the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak a few months later. This has led some observers to hypothesize that Klaus and his WEF might have had something to do with the Covid-19 outbreak, and that an actual global financial train-wreck will be in the works shortly after Cyber Polygon, opening the door for Klaus’s heralded Great Reset.

Personally, I have no data to suggest these things are linked to one another. What’s more, if ever a complex system had evolved to self-destruct spectacularly on its own, it would be the global financial system, but especially the parts of it currently running in the USA and in Euroland, based on the Big Rock Candy Mountain economic model: Need money to run your society when your standard of living has outrun your productive capacity? Just pick hundred dollar bills off the money trees! That’s how we roll.

America’s empty suit, “Joe Biden,” travels to Euroland this week to confab with his supposed counterparts. He’ll drop into the G-7 meeting in Cornwall, UK, where the head honchos of foreign lands will perhaps get a chance to size him up for twenty minutes between naps; he’ll meet Queen Elizabeth, who was appointed a Counsellor of State before “Joe Biden” was out of his diapers (will she appreciate his wit?); he’ll drop into a NATO Summit in Brussels and meet with Turkey’s President Erdogan — better wear protective head-gear, Joe — and finally, the main event on June 16, Mr. Biden will meet with Vladimir Putin, wherewith, we’re given to believe, Mr. B will “discuss matters of mutual interest” with the Russian president. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that room!

Meanwhile, speaking of crashing financials, the Bank of International Settlements’ (BIS) Basel 3 net stable funding requirement goes into effect before the end of June. That’s a mouthful, I know, but the net effect will be the demise of the “paper” gold markets that have been used by interested parties to queer the gold price and thus protect the value of the dollar for decades. Combine that move with the — what? — $11-trillion that “Joe Biden’s” handlers seek to print-up and distribute the next year or so and it kind of looks like the US dollar should be given last rites. Prepare to reset yourselves to flat broke.

        I can think of two posters here who may not enjoy the topic very much though. I mean, why write an entire blog post on an obvious fictional conspiracy theory??

        • O.G. Hawkins June 7, 2021 at 12:58 pm #

          Yes indeed, Mr M. One can bury their head in the sand or one can soar with eagles. No one does both.

          • bluedog June 7, 2021 at 3:41 pm #

            Well seeing the eagle is a vulture, I guess you would be about right..

          • O.G. Hawkins June 7, 2021 at 4:25 pm #

            Eagle, any of many large, heavy-beaked, big-footed birds of prey belonging to the family Accipitridae (order Accipitriformes). In general, an eagle is any bird of prey more powerful than a buteo. An eagle may resemble a vulture in build and flight characteristics but has a fully feathered (often crested) head and strong feet equipped with great curved talons. A further difference is in foraging habits: eagles subsist mainly on live prey. They are too ponderous for effective aerial pursuit but try to surprise and overwhelm their prey on the ground. Like owls, many decapitate their kills. Because of their strength, eagles have been a symbol of war and imperial power since Babylonian times. Their likeness is found on Greek and Roman ruins, coins, and medals.

        Also agree that the Cyber Polygon simulation is quite ominous. I wonder if Bill Gates will also host something similar to the Event 201, held the same day the World Military Games began in Wuhan, which described a novel Coronavirus that could kill 70 million people, see https://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/

  2. PeteAtomic June 7, 2021 at 10:00 am #

    Good morning, Jim. Thanks for the blog today.

    The ‘Great Reset’ is really just another name for a form of neo-feudalism, with such aristocrats as Schwab, Bill Gates, and Jeff Bezos, are cast as the new liege lords of the system. These people may believe they are doing good deeds, but the road to hell is indeed paved with good intentions. What it really is is yet another layer of the matrix of control that has been spun around the individual. As you point out, such fundamental & historic individual liberties like personal property or privacy are being explained away in a fresh type of NewSpeak by these oligarchs. For them, the idea of individual choices are the main problem. The choice of what to eat, to divulge to others, to defend oneself, or to choose what to think with the freedom of your own mind– these are the things that must be “Reset” so that billions of individuals live & die under the rule of their golden thumbs.

      Workers are not in demand, with robots.
      So depopulation is ‘in’.

    • Night Owl June 7, 2021 at 11:33 am #

      Pretty much, Pete.

      I keep saying, this is pretty much the only thing that matters right now. Particularly if one reads about what they’d like to do if they are able to mandate these vaccines.

      The fake pandemic and vaccines are being used to bring in a reorganized society and control structure. The vaccines could also actually be developed to harm us, given how much Gates and co. talk about depopulation, but that remains to be seen — beyond the deaths and injuries that could be explained by the lack of proper testing and the rush to profit from them.

      I recommend everyone visit the Stiftung Corona-Ausschuss where a bunch of very big brains are discussing these things in a very sober manner and connecting quite a few dots with hard evidence. Many episodes are dubbed in or held in English.

    Every people’s revolution I’ve ever read about ends with people like Klaus headless. I wonder if he reads the same history as I do. I wonder why he thinks this time will be different.

    • O.G. Hawkins June 7, 2021 at 10:36 am #

      I am sure that Klaus has access to history that would blow your noggin, LH.

      What’s different this time?

      Planning & Technology come to mind immediately. They have been imlementing this plan since they formed in 1717. Their plan included Free Market Capitalism growing Technology into all-seeing and all-hearing surveillance of a zombified populace. Check.

      This is different because it is “Peaceful” and Global. This jab database allows the herding of all of Humanity for the first time ever and without a shot fired or people trekking to Bethlehem. All of Humanitiy. That is, not only the 4.3% of people that are American but the other 95.7% of us as well.

      This is different because of our 50-year run of “prosperity” on fiat Petro-Dollars. Their plan included looting the efforts of Billions for decades. Their plan was to allow the average Joe the opulence of lying on his back in the Mexican or Jamaican sun with a piña on its way 1 week/year and cruise in private luxury SUV comfort the rest. That is, they let the cake rise to its fullest before taking it out of the oven.

      Even the historical deaths that I presume that you speak of (France 1770s & Russia 1910s) were actually merely parts of their plan.

      ——

      USA was exceptional. Exceptional in the sense that it was Queen’s rook’s pawn while War was waged elsewhere on the board.

        They would like us to believe that it was the little guy who took down the royalty in the French Revolution.

          On the eve of the Black takeover of South Africa, Mandela suddenly announced the new nation would not be Communist, but rather Socialist. The International Corporations weren’t going anywhere and the people weren’t going to own them. If he decided differently, he would have been taken out.

    • Ron Anselmo June 7, 2021 at 10:44 am #

      Agreed Liz, 100%, very well said – headless or a headshot. On history (and preservation of same) – that’s precisely why the Marxists want to erase history.

      They can then teach our children that there was never a time in which people did not follow orders, did not do what they’re told and just simply comply.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder June 7, 2021 at 12:14 pm #

        They already are starting in the grade schools. Well, they haven’t been able to completely dismiss the way people used to be as fiction (yet), but they certainly have diminished those that came before us as simple-minded and barbaric.

        Bullshit. Same people we ever were, just easier times. Sooner the kids learn that the better. But that isn’t the plan at the moment…

        • Dr_Wellington_Yueh June 7, 2021 at 4:30 pm #

          I observed long ago that humans are just getting stupider with every generation. I think about Lewis & Clark…they crossed a grizzly-infested continent with their bare hands and a few muskets. It takes a quick, agile mind to survive over several different landscapes with differing types and levels of sustenance available.

    • Not_GeorgeT June 7, 2021 at 10:52 am #

      They always think this time will be different. It’s the part of the history they choose to ignore, likely due to myriad reasons, a common thread being they are convinced they are just better than the rest of us.

      They…. always an interesting collective suiting many circumstances.

      History is now available to us mostly in the form of online – quickly editable – format. So we don’t all read the same history nowadays unfortunately and that is the reason why we should read and preserve any and all history books and encyclopedias on our bookshelves where history cannot be altered at will by a Google technocrat under the orders of Pichai Sundararajan.

      • Blackbird June 7, 2021 at 5:57 pm #

        Also a good reason to copy web-based resources to your hard drive. Besides changing, stuff keeps disappearing.

    • Yohannon June 7, 2021 at 11:50 am #

      Agree with OG. They are so, so much better at it now. Their plans are very, very well laid. They lost their heads? The people behind the French Revolution? No. The middle men did. Later Napoleon did lock up one big Banker who happened to actually live in France. International Bankers were already a thing. He realized that he was still running things from prison. He then put him in the deepest, darkest dungeon and that was the end of him – unless his buddies managed to get him out somehow.

      Capitalism and Communism are now working together in very close tandem – not trying to hide their agreement. Communist Ideologues want stuff too. Blacks are very easy to buy off, typically as Buy Large Mansions show. Browns may be harder.

      Klaus and Co. are writing history. It will treat them well.

      What is happening is not a people’s revolution, it is a revolution of the elite. It is the people headed toward the guillotine.

      If, on the other hand, you mean a yet-to-happen counterrevolution of the people against the elite, I can’t see that happening due to extreme asymmetry of resources.

      But I would like to see that big white cat batting that bald head around the kitchen floor.

That was back when the Chinese population was not as large as it is today.

    Thanks for today’s offering, JHK. Brilliant as always. The ability to find humor in our situation is key to not giving up or into the maniacs in charge.

    I often wondered how just a handful of individuals with power could do what Hitler & co. did but now it’s apparent. Great propaganda, mass hypnotism, and marketing, plus the key people Soros & co. put in place, to enforce the new rules. That’s about it. And people give up everything, and allow themselves to be used as lab rats. Easy peasy.

    Last night I talked with a friend from childhood, who I hadn’t seen since. She said she got her grandkids and herself vaxxed so they could go to a concert.

    The hoi polloi is going to move fairly easily into techno-feudalism, it would appear.

    • SW June 7, 2021 at 11:12 am #

      @MaryV —

      “to enforce the new rules.” Exactly. A family member will be flying to America later this year and I was reading the newest rules on line for the pandemic. A child two or older must wear a mask the entire time. This is a ten hour flight! Every study shows children are at zero risk of getting it, transmitting it or being seriously ill. And the cabin crew will be enforcing those rules or you can be put on a list and denied flight privileges in the future. I’ve heard the announcements when I’ve flown and there’s no doubt in my mind they mean it.

      So –“I often wondered how just a handful of individuals with power could do what Hitler & co. did but now it’s apparent.”

      The Third Reich thrived b/c the majority of the people not only obeyed the rules but were willing enforcers.

        Belief and commitment are everything. You can burn an American flag since “it’s your flag”. It was made in China and you own it. You got a receipt! But if you burn a Gay or BLM flag, you’ll get stomped and may to jail for a hate crime.

        As a sophisticated American, you believe in little and agree that a person should have a right to burn “their flag”, right? Are you sophisticated enough to realize how weak that makes us? That there literally is no us anymore once devalue our collective symbol?

        If most people don’t follow the rules, you have nothing. The rules should make sense and be for the good of the collective. The Nation. The Folk. Not aliens or non-folk.

          A flag is just a piece of material if the ideals they represent have deteriorated. That’s the point unfortunately that’s made. To a lot of people the flag still and always will represent the ideals of America even though the corruption is on full display.

        • SW June 7, 2021 at 5:20 pm #

          @ Yohannon.

          The flag itself is a powerful symbol & that’s why the Confederate flag was such a bone of contention. IMO only the American flag should be flown over government buildings & people can fly the BLM or gay flag or even the Confederate flag at their own home. It’s part of freedom of expression whether anyone else likes it or not.

          A two-year old and a baby. Alone. The sippy cup is a good idea 🙂

          @ MaryV —

          Most people want to obey laws that are reasonable and for everyone’s benefit, like traffic laws. I don’t think many people had any idea before this pandemic how extensive and repressive these rules “for our own good” would be used to control and circumvent our lives — and how compliant many would be. And how little power to dissent anyone who disagreed would have.

  7. NickelthroweR June 7, 2021 at 10:27 am #

    Yesterday evening I had a phone call with one of my rabid leftist friends. Yes, you can be my friend even if you are a rabid leftist and, besides, who else is there to talk to in California?

    Over the course of this hoax, I’ve laid out the arguments put forth on sites like this, Zerohedge, The Burning Platform, etc. The people I talk to speak to me as if I were the village imbecile – almost with a sense of pity that I didn’t believe “the science” even thou I have an insane laboratory, design and manufacture precision tools and conduct medical experiments. But that doesn’t count.

    Anyway, last night my friend finally came around because the lab origin of Covid can’t be hidden anymore. I went back over with him all the “canceling” that took place in that anyone that suggested that this was a lab leak was banned from twitter, banned from facebook, faced jail time or just simply had their life ruined. Odd about all of that huh?

    Since he had but no choice to concede that covid was a man made bio-weapon (gain of function) I then hit him again. “The cooks that made this virus must have the recipe, right?” Of course they do. They know its ingredients, how it was “cooked up” and, possibly, how to resist and fight it but we didn’t get any of that information because no one dared suggest it came from a lab.

    Now that he was open to an actual discussion, I sent him short video clips of the Nobel Prize Winner and creator of the PCR test explaining that it CAN NOT detect a specific virus. The test CAN NOT tell you if you are sick or not. Of course, that guy died 3 months after making that announcement. Funny how that works.

    The final lie is waiting to reveal itself and that is the jab itself. Everyone that has taken it has jumped on a train built by the SS & I.G.Farben. They’ve been told that the train is taking them to Unicorn & Rainbow Land and, for their sake, I hope that is true. But, what if the train built by evil MONSTERS isn’t going to Funland? What if it is going to Treblinka?

    Frankly, I’m so certain the train is going to Treblinka that I went out and bought 3 suits so I do not have to wear the same one to all of the funerals I suspect I’ll be going to come winter time.

    • MaryV June 7, 2021 at 11:07 am #

      I also think the train is going to Treblinka… and I am not even close to prepared for something like that.

      And of course the PTB will blame those deaths on the unvaxxed.

      Anyone who thinks that Covid19 is ‘over’ is going to have a rude awakening.

      I still don’t think it was leaked out of a lab though… or if it was, it’s a pretty weaksauce bioweapon. And I think it was gone in June 2020 just like the graphs showed, like coronaviruses are every year. Notice that’s when the ‘cases’ bullshit started, and the mask fetish, etc etc. Then they just rebranded all deaths as Covid19 and come fall, the CDC created PIC which lumped all respiratory illnesses and death together.

      What a scam.

      • O.G. Hawkins June 7, 2021 at 12:18 pm #

        I Believe that COVID19 was “leaked” and that Dr Fauci knew that it would be contagious enough and lethal enough to wreak havoc in old folks’ homes. Separately, another localized agent was used to provide people dropping in the streets in Wuhan and to hoodwink Iran.

        I Believe that everything is going to script. They have their timelines down. They hold other shoes yet to drop.

      • SuperDave June 7, 2021 at 5:38 pm #

        Here is a what-if to ponder. If I were an evil PTB type and I wanted rid of the excess population to make the world happy for the little animals and end climate change and just to have wonderful harmony on the Earth, would I unleash a super-bug and kill a bunch of folks… or perhaps, I might unleash a “weaksauce bioweapon” that maybe just kills people mostly sick and nearly dead already (i.e. old, obese diabetics and such) … and then get “all the nice, compliant types” to get a vaccine that replicates a spike proteins keeps them from being killed, if say, a virus with the spike proteins affixed to the Ebola virus suddenly emerges (aka unleased). Then, folks without the vaccine die in a massive die-off…perhaps these folks might be deplorables?? Sometimes people say what they mean and mean what they say. We might need to step up what we think of as evil.

        • MaryV June 8, 2021 at 9:45 am #

          That scenario sounds plausible until you realize that thousands have died from the vaccines themselves… so I am not in the camp who thinks the vaxxed will be saved and unvaxxed killed off.

          But we shall see.

    • Night Owl June 7, 2021 at 11:38 am #

      Good post, but the virus itself (whatever it is) does not appear to be much of a bioweapon at this point.

      I tend to believe that the vaccines are the issue — particularly as they have indicated that we are to be taking several of them, and regularly — if they get to the point where they could implement it.

      They are absolutely desperate to get people to take these shots.

        • KappaJoe June 7, 2021 at 5:23 pm #

          A close friend and I discussed this very idea on and off in the early 2000s.

          On the nearing completion of human genome sequencing, immortality (or at the very least a very long life) was within THEIR grasp and THEY would not allow it to escape.

          We often scratched our heads as to why the financial system was being run so recklessly, and this is why, to:

          1) flood the system with money to induce rapid advances in technology, especially materials (esp. nano) science and life-extending medical research, most of the results of which were to be kept secret except for a few bridging technologies.

          2) create as many test subjects as possible and emplace an all-encompassing network to track each of them in real time.

          It’s funny, as I was commenting to my neighbor just last week that, “I’ve never seen the release form for the injection, but I’d assume it has detailed records including SSN or driver’s license or state ID, plus maker, lot number, and sub-lot number. They’re experimenting on us. In fact, I’d wager that each of Pfizer, Moderna, J & J, and AZ each have 100s if not 1000s of versions of their particular covid ‘vaccine’, some of which may even be administered based on age, gender, or race”.

          And, possibly, this is how THEY will know what version and delivery method of telomere enhancement might actually work on humans with the least side-effect. This is why they want everyone injected as quickly as possible, including now even younger age groups.

          If the above theory is correct, we should start seeing immediate death from first injection wane (those experiments are obviously no good, except as lethal injection) and start seeing deaths mainly from the endless various “boosters” and then only the long-term effects, if any.

          As a result, many, if not most of the injected will die or be severely crippled within a few years. Phase one of the experiment will be complete, and Build Back Better (Struggle On Much Worse) will commence with a greatly reduced population to be eventually lorded over by a sizeable a group of 300-year-old trillionaires.

            Maybe, I’m missing something here, but it seems to me that the “blame China” folks might be too hasty in their judgement. After all, the “blame China” meme could just be another diversion conjured up to conceal US involvement. We just don’t know. Secondly, there’s no reason to assume that the alleged “leak” was an ‘accident’ at all, in fact, there is a mountain of circumstantial evidence suggesting otherwise. For example, how do we explain the fact– way back in October, 2019– elites from the Gates Foundation, the World Bank, big media, big pharma, the UN, the CDC, the CIA, the Chinese Center for Disease Control, and John Hopkins University, conducted a “live simulation exercise to prepare public and private leaders for a pandemic response”?

          We know one thing for sure (unless one subscribes to the “shedding” theory). Everyone who has refused the jab is in the control/placebo group in Big Pharma’s little “clinical trial”.

          The other night a guy I know attended a dinner with around ten of his associates in the biz. Eventually the subject of the jabs came
          up and one guy said, “I’m not getting it.”

          Around the table they went and 100% said they were not getting it.

          This tiny statistic makes me doubt that 60% of American adults have gotten it. Regardless of free beers, free burgers, lottery tickets or any other kinds of bribes Newsom, Whitmer, DeWine, DeBlasio or Cuomo have hatched, many I talk to are not interested in taking an experimental untested jab for a virus most have a 99.97% chance of surviving.

            Trump claimed to have done an incredible job “coming up with the vaccine” and arguing no one else could have done it, which is a tired and ludicrous claim.

            Very good killer-argument from RL … the anti-vaxxers literally have no answer to the fact that half a dozen Big Pharma companies were incentivised to do massive research into a vaccine – there were no orders coming from Davos and the NWO.

            The vaccines are not depopulation bio-weapons … those who claim this should take a powder and have a good lie-down.

            One reason for the speed of the vaccine development was they worked off the back of coronavirus research that was decades long, plus they have remarkable technological tools now.

      You couldn’t resist begging the question!

      Even if it is feasible that the origin of the virus was a lab-leak rather than a “natural” crossover (it’s still not close to proven), there is no clear evidence that there was gain-of-function genetic engineering.

      There is no evidence either that it was a bio-weapon – it could have (and most likely was) coronavirus pandemic medical research. GoF research occurs for reasons other than bio-weaponry.

      The virus could have been collected in the field (from a bat-cave), and then infected three lab workers.

      What is interesting is the US seems to have funded this research, despite an Obama-era ban on GoF research. What is interesting also is when the Trump Admin knew of the research funding, and when they knew of a lab-leak (if it occurred).

    Mom & pop first to go. Next, privately held restaurants with a little better capitalization, followed by the nationals (fast food joints well dispersed and capitalized – but too hard & costly to individually defend).

    All that will remain will be supermarkets (as distribution centers, due to established logistics, supply chains & locations) and community food banks/soup kitchens.

    These two options – the only two – will then become the choke points for food distribution or not – depending upon behavioral modification needs of the “locals”.

    Based upon the well-noted Katrina response simulation – we’re about 72 hours away – 9 meals – from complete societal breakdown.

    Happy Monday everybody.

      Yup.

      Eventually they will have well-paid trained killers at the entrances of the food distribution centers?

      No jab papers? Papers out of order?

        Revelation 13

        9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
        10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
        11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
        12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
        13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
        14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
        15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
        16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
        17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
        18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

      Listening to the local radio station this morning, the hosts were talking about signs they’d seen on a couple of local restaurants –” Please be Patient with us! We have staff shortages!” One of them talked to the owner who told him that not only can they not get anyone to come back to work, getting supplies (like meat, eggs) is harder b/c the suppliers don’t have enough people on the job.

            Sounds like you haven’t grokked overpopulation. Few Christians have.

            Now you may know about this, but Michael Matt of the Remnant didn’t. He was driving across America, amazed at all the open spaces. Overpopulation, he scoffed! He doesn’t know that the Dakotas are hard lands. That many bought land there thinking it was Iowa all over again – and were ruined. Much of the West is even harder. That’s just the Great Plains. Parts of the Great Plains are high grass – you can do more there. But it’s still not the Midwest or the East. The Low Grass is harder still. Then you get to the little or no grass.

            No fig trees, Messi.

      I also think restaurants will be having a hard time in the future. As inflation bites, folks tend to stay home to eat. I just returned from a week trip in New England. Lots of restaurants are still only doing carry-out. Lots of staff shortages and longer than usual waits. However I must say the lobster was delicious and my better half enjoyed his fried clams with bellies.

      We might be very close to a societal breakdown, and JIT will hasten it. There are your 72 hours/9 meals just waiting to happen, coming along just in time, and I think a lot don’t get it.

      So your scenario plays out.

      My hope is enough people are paying attention in my small corner of life and the world to sustain ourselves and adapt to changing situations. Life is change, adapters have a better chance at weathering the storm. Hope it is the same in your small space in the world.

In addition to this, these ‘reviewers’ are back-channel teaching people how to prepare their own healthy food…escape the trap of the McMeal.

      Things will have to get very bad before we get to bread lines, and then methinks only the blue counties. I suspect things will just get very weird for a time.

      The brain drain to red states/counties is a problem they will try to counter by forcing a refugee crisis. Red states/counties should prepare to repel refugees.

    Meanwhile, away from Davos and back in the real world of a capital city that’s been around since 1130 and eventually built upwards to 14 storeys on top of the basalt rock, suburbia not being a practical proposition at that point – and where the bodily wastes of the Old Town’s rich and poor, from the same tenements, flowed in unison down to the fetid Nor’ Loch (now Waverley Station), I happened upon an interesting statement of reality.

    (with apols for run-on sentence …)

    And I only happened upon it because I re-acquainted myself with ‘Nextdoor’ to add a notice that someone had addressed a parcel to my address with the name of someone I’d never heard of.

    Anyway, some helpful person had also added a notice to the effect that the city Council has declared that the electric grid will in no way be able to support the move to what he called ‘EV vehicles’.

    Well, there’s a thing.

    This person has apparently created an online space where earnest and interested users and aspiring users of ‘EV vehicles’ will be able to discuss er … issues.

    I’ll give them a couple of weeks, then perhaps drop by and be annoying by providing a link to The Long Emergency.

    The city Council’s view on the ‘issues’ is that the future has to include more of what it called ‘active transport’ (bikes and shoe leather to you and me) plus buses. There was also mention that with ‘EV vehicles’ being heavier than petrol/diesel vehicles, the Council’s roads will take more of a beating. Watch out council tax payers, whether or not you drive an ‘EV vehicle’ or indeed drive a vehicle at all.

    But it will be interesting to see how the discussion space goes for the earnest ‘EV vehicle’ folks and their ‘issues’.

    Separately the only good thing about the blarney that will go on in Cornwall is that it’s very beautiful but one of the poorest areas in the UK, so especially with the lost of tourist pounds over the last year, it really could do with the big spenders doing some brief big spending. And eating some of the local fish, which can’t get to the EU any more before it rots.

    Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and Bill Gates???

    Powerful men.

    What has made a huge contingent of the USA favor their world view?

    The problem is here!

    Gimmes in control. Power people maintaining their power base. Population growth measures incorporating gimme folks only. Not Black, not White, not ethnicity, but gimme status on the economic theater.

    Remember Black like Me in the 60s. How come none of our White Leftist zealots do not “dye” themselves Black like that long lost crusader? If they want talk the talk, why not walk the walk.

    Because that is them, all talk.

    I wonder if the Vanilla Oreos, white on the outside and black on the inside, realize that when they give away this country, almost done, they will also have to find a new home. Their power will evaporate.

    It is time for Patriots, no matter what color they are, to stand up and tell these crumb bum globalist supporters to go find another country to take over. It is time for Patriots to stop the gimme invasion.

    The main opposition seems to be coming from the Red states. Good for them. But what happens when federal political control comes from the cities, and the cities outnumber everyone else. With the current immigration situation, open borders, this will continue in this direction until the economic balance evens out.

    In other words, we will continue to fall to the level of Honduras, etc. until we are equal.

    Which is exactly what the globalist Leftists of this country wants.

    Again, the question is why? Only one thing explains anyone hating their country when they have progressed to the point these crumb bums in the Deep State have achieved.

    Insanity, mental illness.

      As Yogi Beara said, “Predictions are very tricky, especially when they deal with the future.”

      We must try to avoid linear thinking, JohnAZ. Not that you do this; I’m speaking in generalities here.

      There are so many factors in play, it’s hard to predict how they will all interact, and what the results will be.

      For example, I hope the Deagle Report with it’s prediction of only 100 million Americans alive by year 2025 is wrong. It doesn’t say how we get there. Pathogens or their vaccines run amuck or war with China, or some other cause.

      But I have a strong suspicion that those who own and run the world are not our friends. Once this made me one of the craziest of the nut jobs. But I sense a lot more people are reaching that conclusion..

        Having studied and worked in Japan a total of 8 years since 1962, I an affirm that there is a powerful awareness of this reality. They thus loathe the notion of foreigners residing among their people (equally-despised ethnic Koreans and the untouchable “burakumin” historically reside apart from “true Japanese” – before a daughter is allowed to marry, her parents customarily hire a private investigator to snoop around the prospective groom’s past, making sure he has not hidden an unwanted identity).

        Now that the birth rate in Japan has gone into a death spiral, and they are forced to allow in the despicable aliens to work (particularly in “three Ks” jobs: “kitanai, kiken & kitsui” (“filthy, dangerous and harsh”), they face a conundrum as never before. They can contain the corrupting foreign element in ghettos (there are communities of Japanese-Brazilian immigrants, moved to Japan as Brazil becomes impossible – they are encouraged to keep to themselves, as they are not to be accepted as “true Japanese”) but sooner or later there will likely be challenges to the monolithic culture, and it promises to not be pretty.

        Youhannon, you’ll love this bit of early American history., When Lewis & Clark arrived for a winter oi endless rain at the mouth of the Colombia they kept hearing rumors of a Black God who ruled over one of the tribes to the south. White seafarers had been ranging up and down what is now the Oregon and Washington coasts for years, looking for the mythical Northwest passage but didn’t dare come ashore because of the flotillas of war canoes that guarded its shores.

        When a storm sank one of these white expedition ships the one person strong enough to make it ashore was the black ship’s slave. Not only did he make it ashore, learn the language and culture of a completely foreign people, but rose to a position where he owned every person and all the wealth within sight.

    Great fun right from go. When you compared Schwab to a James Bond villain, my mind leapt straight to “Casino Royale” wherein both David Niven and Peter Sellers are James Bond. It’s the best comparison to our current panoply of technofetishist villains.

    Today’s essay got me reflecting on the trajectory of this: Remember “The Work of Nations”? When this came out, the father of my best pal at the time, living in Westchester,NY- a senior executive at IBM would regale us with stories about how IBM used to be and how it was being ruined. But then he also insisted, paradoxically, that we read this latest faddish tome by Robert Reich. While the top management of this venerable company were really at loggerheads with all the ‘diversity hires’ and other such feel good management fad stuff coming it, they were simultaneously enthusiastic about the meta ideas being propagated by the same idiots who were clogging up American business with ruinous notions of financialization, &c…
    We can see how all this has turned out.

    Work of Nations was followed by a series of similarly idiotic books by Thomas Friedman who is a factory for bad takes on any subject you can think of.

    Maybe one of us could get paid for writing a parody futurist business book “Own Nothing and Like it (Or else!)” – feel free to run with it, people. Just put me in the title crawl somewhere.

          The year I got married my husband’s US siblings and their families came over and stayed in the little village where the deed was done, on the west coast, up north. Very bad internet connection and mobile reception.

          His sisters, with good jobs, were expected to deal with their emails while they were on holiday. I was gobsmacked, but was told this is quite routine in the US. I wouldn’t have dreamed of looking at my work emails on holiday – or if I’d looked at them I wouldn’t have dreamed of dealing with them. What do they think holiday means? It’s not like they were the president of a country or something.

          I fondly remember a Canadian doctor from the ‘Sick Kids’ hospital in Toronto having an out-of-office message that said ‘I am away from ____ to _____ . Any emails sent during that time will be deleted, so tough.’

            Courts would have the right to call you back from your holidays to give expert-witness testimony. Vacationing police officers could likewise be summoned back from holiday to testify. So a habit developed – allegedly – of saying of someone thus summoned ‘he’s walking in the Highlands’, meaning he’s not contactable so you might as well piss off. Everyone knew what it meant, and life went on.

      Ah, Thomas Friedman, of the famous “Friedman Unit”, tongue-in-cheek for the time unit of 6 months, the length of time which Friedman predicted the Iraq war would take. He’s been wrong about a shitload of stuff since then of course, but that’s what keeps his pay checks rolling in. He even sent his daughter to go heckle Jimmy Dore… it didn’t go well for her.

      Robert Reich once dated Cankles, little known factoid. “Cankles and the wee Toad” would be a good descriptor of them as a couple.

    If Quentin Tarantino made a James Bond movie, the villain would be a maniac named Klaus Schwab, played with a light touch by Christoph Waltz, leading a SMERSH-like org bent on turning the world into a utopia of robots, and, of course, absolutely everything would go wrong, leading to a joyously comical bloodbath in the climax.

    I see Screenwriter and Executive Producer credits in your future Jim! Maybe even a cameo, as Tarantino is quite fond of those, although I think he really missed out casting Barry Corbin in No Country for Old Men, a part that was tailor made for our resident curmudgeon.

          John Lennon, I recall a cover story with photo, think it was Esquire, early 1980, the image is still clear to me.

          A quieter person in many ways, with investments, particularly real estate, up and down the Hudson. Successful financially, working on being a parent/family person, the piece showed a different side of him.

          • Yohannon June 7, 2021 at 12:48 pm #

            Exactly. A Capitalist. They got him, either as a youthful Communist idealist or as a practical Capitalist. It’s One System.

            More evidence: the overtly Globalist, Yoko.

            Real estate up and down the Hudson. A sell out? No, because that would imply he was ever “in” or not bought. We are born in captivity. He thought we word born free – a huge mistake. We have to free ourselves.

          • malthuss June 7, 2021 at 2:48 pm #

            Okay, here goes. I knew someone who had lived with JL. This was confirmed in one of the many books about him.

            When he left the Bs, he had a million dollars and it was tied up in lawsuits.
            Yoko is from a rich family and did the investing for them.
            By his death 12? years later, the royalties he was getting and his 1 million grew to maybe 50x that.

            THE DAKOTA, they bought so many units in it [presumably for privacy] the other residents created a rule about how many units one person or corporation can own.

            The last time I saw John, it was at an eatery that served rice etc. No beef served. But much of the money they made was from Yoko investing in cattle. At least thats what I read.

            His last album got bad reviews, after all Yok was singing on much of it.
            When he was murdered, then the good reviews appeared. GENIUS. COME BACK. BRILLIANT.

            ‘OUR LIFE TOGETHER, WE HAVE GROWN’
            One review said the critics were invited to a listening party and ‘we all groaned over his sentimentality.’

    The man with no soul (Putin) meets the man with no brain (Biden). They then encounter the man with no heart (Boris Johnson of the perpetual lock-up). They are joined by a pig-tailed girl in a dirndl named Angela (and her little dog,too) in trying to find the way back to Kansas down the BIS gold road.

    But alas Klaus Schwab flying around on a broomstick keeps harassing them by taking everything they own. And he’s screaming “Are you happy, now?!”

    Lots of food for thought in this JHK post. Maybe GA can enlighten us as to what a raclette is, but otherwise, the gist is clear. My mentor used to say, “Ownership is nothing, control is everything.” Folks, that train done already left the station. The people in charge have perfected a system of control never before seen in all of human history. They have been making exploratory forays into elimination of the useless eaters for many decades. Only now have they perfected the tools to do so. However, there is a significant percentage of the population who are not going along with the scheme. Fortunately there is a large overlap between this group & the remaining producers who are not useless eaters. Unfortunately, a large segment of true useless eaters are also “vaccine hesitant,” most of them residing in the inner urban ghettoes. This summer their antics should get interesting.

    The killing of the fake gold markets is designed to ratchet up the pressure on the dollar. If you’re a billionaire, & you lose 75% of your nominal wealth, it’s to laugh at (Let’s just say these people have already made provisions.) If you’re a typical suburbanite, losing 75% of your wealth is a disaster.

      You’re right, it’s the electronic panopticon and if cash can be eliminated and all transactions become digital, this surveillance system will be complete. Already what we read can be known from Kindle, online libraries and ordering books from Amazon. Most bookstores are closed but that may not matter anymore since only a few people actually read.

    • Night Owl June 7, 2021 at 12:19 pm #

      Raclette is a Continental thing. You sit down with a few friends and share a griddle/stove that sits in the middle of the table. You all get a little pan with a handle into which you put your Raclettekäse (here in Germany) and you add vegetables or meat to the pan to your heart’s content.

      Then you put your little pan on the stove and wait about 5 mins until the cheese melts.

      It sounds better than it actually is.

        I thought the idea was to take a large Swiss cheese, cut it in half, turn the cut “face” (kind of like a cheese Alp) toward a blazing fire, and when the face of the mountain has melted, scrape it off and eat it with a piece of bread.

        Meanwhile the exposed layer of the cheese has melted.

        Rinse and repeat until it’s time for desert or is that dessert.

        Yum.

      I wouldn’t dream of patronising you by doing any such thing, Tate.

      Personally, I prefer the last stages of a nice, wine-y fondue, when you scrape the bits that have stuck to the bottom of the pot with your slightly stale bread. Ah … memories.

    “And what about your property Klaus?”

    Exactly. Somehow folks (and the media, as a specialty) seem to imply that fortified island lair-dwelling jagoffs like Schwab are saying “We will own nothing. And we will like it.” No…it is clearly stated that <strong/you and I shall be the experiment here (huh, sounds vaguely familiar…). They shall watch from on high and chuckle, whilst rudely gesturing for the piss-boy and his bucket.

    “Ah-ahh…don’t forget the shake!”

    The sad part is he’s kind of right about the liking it part. Give every American 2k+/month to not give a shit and rent/consume/ingest the products of those busybodies who actually do and make things…more than half of them will think it’s just friggin’ dandy.

    Eventually that number will be more like 90%, as there will be an even more stark two-tiered system than there already is. Those that do (and have), and those that don’t (and don’t, but think they do).

    Klaus may umltimately be a puppet of the unseen higher-ups, but he’s in a pretty good seat to bloviate about naturally lesser masses. Must be nice to be so pompous and have literally no one of significant public stature call you on it, for fear of dropping into the lower 90% sooner rather than later.

      The currency can be backed in several ways.

      1) You need some of it to pay your taxes
      2) Government run brothels will also provide all manner of drugs and a clean safe place to use them. Payment in Govt issued currency only.

        Huh. I found 1.1M as a net worth for Ol’ Schwabby.

        But I’m sure there’s nothing changing hands out of view of public scrutiny. It’s Switzerland after all, nowhere to hide money there, right?

        I’m also sure he’s probably paying his full mortgage(s), travel, entertainment, food, family’s education, utility costs, etc entirely out-of-pocket.

        You’re right, he’s a regular Joe Jamoke, BBQing brats for the neighbors while listening to the ball game on the ol’ AM. We should listen to him and realize that he’s right, because…I mean c’mon man, what on earth does a guy like him have to gain by being a mouthpiece for the financial elite?

        Thanks for setting me straight. I’ll get back to focusing on owning nothing and being happy.

    Here is the “Conservative” premier (governor) of Manitoba when he was asked an unexpected question about treatment drugs such as Ivermectin.

    Look at his response. I wanted to share this with my American friends.

    seem to be two major forces at play:
    1. The wealthy globalists control everything, own everything and are making power plays and coming up with top-down “solutions” to global problems as if the world was a video simulation they turn the knobs on

    and
    2. Limits to growth of energy “production,” population, economies, water usage… etc. threaten to derail all the structures that keep the globalists in power and present systems functioning

    So, I expect the globalists will play around with their knob tweaking a while, but in the end, it will come to nothing. The systems they depend on will crack-up before too long… But in the meantime, some combination of both forces, while the ptb try to keep things on their pet tracks as long as possible

    But basically, I kind of expect “Reset” projects will be doomed, laughable hubris that will be more a series of jokes than anything else

    • gustafson.robert.22 June 7, 2021 at 1:52 pm #

      also, there’s a limit to what people will put up with, i think. Doesnt seem like it at the moment maybe. But i don’t see enough cooperation from public to make straus-style resets work long

      • Night Owl June 7, 2021 at 2:24 pm #

        Where are you located, and what types of people are around you? Because here in Germany, I would put the chances at 50/50.

        We went to the zoo yesterday, primarily because they had lifted their mask restriction (with the exception of the outdoor ticket area, because even the more relaxed Corona regulations continue to be influenced by knuckledraggers), and although the majority of the crowd was maskless, I found it interesting that when we did see maskers, they tended to be millennials with kids. Most were wearing the heavy duty FP2/N95esque masks popular among the Good Germans, and they even had their kids wearing them. Some of those kids looked to be as young as three.

        The younger generation in this country (in particular) is in need of some serious help.

        • gustafson.robert.22 June 7, 2021 at 3:48 pm #

          Yeah. I’m in a rural area on east coast USA (North Carolina). Majority have dropped masks since the cdc dropped recommendation for vaxers.

          I know majority of urban white and/or middle-class millenials are compliant, scared weenies susceptible to control. They want to believe the world status quo will come through for them.

          But i don’t see deplorable-leaning whites, or majority of blacks, or latinos either here… the “working” class (“lower” might be more accurate) basically, putting up with extreme reset measures without morale getting real low real quick.

          And then, i think the noncompliance or unrest would be serious, and the whole myth that america is for everybody would be so violated, i dont think the reset would get that far. USA would have to go back to placating the masses till the whole system fails.

          Basically, i don’t think the Schwabians will have enough hold on the lower classes to accomplish much significant. I think they would need them more on board. I think they expect they will be able to coerce or convince them and are wrong.

          Its a very middle-class and above atmosphere – this techno socialist sort of dream

    This is the most sensible thing I’ve read on the origins of Covid-19:

    • SW June 7, 2021 at 3:03 pm #

      It’s obvious from the evidence they presented that it was an escape. The level of containment was BSL2 which is about the same as a dentist’s office. I just read this long article on natural spillover vs. lab made:

      https://thebulletin.org/2021/05/the-origin-of-covid-did-people-or-nature-open-pandoras-box-at-wuhan/

      from the article:

      “In conclusion. If the case that SARS2 originated in a lab is so substantial, why isn’t this more widely known? As may now be obvious, there are many people who have reason not to talk about it. The list is led, of course, by the Chinese authorities. But virologists in the United States and Europe have no great interest in igniting a public debate about the gain-of-function experiments that their community has been pursuing for years.”

      It’s a long article but very interesting and full of information about how this was accomplished.

      • Tekapo June 7, 2021 at 4:54 pm #

        It’s obvious from the evidence they presented that it was an escape.

        Is it “obvious”?

        The story states – as do the links within it – that the natural crossover and the lab-leak are both viable origins at this stage, based on available evidence. Various scientists hold strong views both ways.

        The second focus of interest is whether SARS-CoV-2 is a naturally occurring virus, or has been modified – again the jury remains out.

        Then of course whether the gene research was gain-of-function (basically speeding up evolution in specific directions to make the virus a human pathogen).

        Then, whether the US NIH and/or the Pentagon funded research for years, and whether the funded research was gain-of-function research, despite the Obama ban, and then under Trump.

        Lots of questions still, and without Chinese co-operation I can’t see how President Biden’s investigation is going to get a lot of answers.

      • Tekapo June 7, 2021 at 5:10 pm #

        Yes – I read the Nicholas Wade piece some weeks ago – well written and persuasive, without being conclusive.

        And one of the comments was succinct:

        The question of SARS-CoV-2’s origin has little bearing on the trajectory of the current pandemic. But it’s hugely important when it comes to preventing future pandemics.

        If the research that supposedly protects us from zoonotic spillovers is in fact increasing the net pandemic risk (due to human error, accident, etc), then that research needs to be halted. At the very least, it should be limited and done only under tightly controlled conditions. This would require international agreement, and perhaps an auditing regime with actual teeth.

        One thing is for sure though: we will never sort this out if we leave it to the WHO, and to certain researchers who have a personal/financial stake in preserving the status quo.

        I think Dr Fauci and Dr Daszak have some explaining to do. I expect Congress might invite them to do so.

    • Tekapo June 7, 2021 at 5:17 pm #

      And that doesn’t raise a red flag with you?

      Of course it did – I read things very critically, especially in terms of the source. But I don’t find it useful to descend to the level of paranoia and government-hate that is so common on here. It too often inhibits rational thought and decent discussion.

      • SW June 7, 2021 at 5:31 pm #

        I recommended the article bc it presented the facts & didn’t make wild accusations. The most damning evidence is the inability to find an animal reservoir or chain of infection. We’ll likely not get all the information if China continues to stonewall.

        • Tekapo June 7, 2021 at 10:23 pm #

          I recommended the article bc it presented the facts & didn’t make wild accusations.

          Yes – that’s why it was a valuable read. I’m reasonably convinced it was leaked from the Wuhan Lab – through workers who became ill and presented at a hospital.

          Whether it was collected from the field, or engineered to be more human infectious … hard to know without more evidence, I guess.

          It was late, they wanted to end their shift, they were waiting for more batches of votes to come in from precincts all over the state … they ducked out for a smoke …

          There could be a lot of reasons why voting stopped. The fact that Trump was ahead is no mystery – mail-in ballots (which were always expected to heavily favour Joe Biden) were counted after election-day votes were counted.

          Nothing nefarious about all this – on its face. People who believe the election was fraudulent can’t be persuaded otherwise; those who believe the election was fair and honest would like to see the fraud-claimers put up the evidence.

    TAKI mag—HECKLER, its for you,

    The Walmart PA incident was given front-page coverage in The New York Times,

    The year was 2010, the month was March. The 14th of March, to be exact. And Americans who had fooled themselves into thinking that their beloved country was not a racist hellhole of genocidal slavers and KKK madmen were about to receive a mighty wake-up call…amplified by a public address loudspeaker.

    On that March day in Washington Township, N.J., a teenager grabbed the PA microphone at a Walmart and announced, “Attention, Walmart customers: All black people leave the store now,” before running out the front door giggling like an idiot.

    It was the single worst racist atrocity in U.S. history. Manzanar? Bah! Those Japs don’t know what suffering is. In fact, survivors of the Tulsa Race Massacre donated reparations money to the blacks who were in the Walmart that day, saying, “What happened to us was a walk in the park in comparison.”

    The Walmart PA incident was given front-page coverage in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and every other major paper in the U.S.

    It was a leadoff story on every network news show that night. Police spared no expense identifying and arresting the 16-year-old culprit, who was charged with “harassment and bias intimidation,” and Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton, who held daily press briefings about the matter, assured the media and all of America’s black citizens that justice would be swift and merciless.

    HECKLER,

    A family of six came under fire along a stretch of Missouri highway last week while on their way to vacation, and a 22-year-old mother is accused of pulling the trigger.

    According to police, the family from Tennessee was heading to Kansas City on I-55 in their Nissan Pathfinder on Friday when a Ford Focus started tailgating the SUV. The Pathfinder driver braked to tell the Focus to slow down or go around, KMOV reported.

    The Focus sped up, got next to the Pathfinder, and the passenger, Shanyka Fouche, pulled out a gun and began shooting.

    “Klaus Schwab has been shockingly literal about his wished-for utopia, summing up his vision as, ‘You will own nothing, and you will be happy about it.’”

    Our response to this should be simple: OK, you great possessors of all the wealth and knowledge of the universe… YOU GO FIRST. YOU own nothing and be happy about it, FIRST! Then maybe we’ll consider it.

    And, to get to the place where YOU own nothing… how about throwing all that our way just so we could know how it feels for a change? Hey, it’s just going to be tossed aside anyway, right? Please, go ahead and BE HAPPY. We want you gods among us to be happy! OWN NOTHING, but YOU go first.

It was empty of younger folks, a couple of old folks like me doing their walking alone or with their beast, but no kids. I asked my neighbor, who has 3 young teens, pre teens where are the kids? She said inside playing video games, alone I asked, and she said no all her kids do play with their friends but online at home alone.

  36. Tekapo June 7, 2021 at 6:04 pm #

    From the JHK essay:

    This has led some observers to hypothesize that Klaus and his WEF might have had something to do with the Covid-19 outbreak, and that an actual global financial train-wreck will be in the works shortly after Cyber Polygon, opening the door for Klaus’s heralded Great Reset.

    Personally, I have no data to suggest these things are linked to one another.

    I’m fairly confident that no such data exists because there is no connection, no causality. The WEF is not running the world.

    The WEF is a sort-of not-for-profit NGO for the ruling class, and it runs events regularly – to both make income, and to stay relevant to its members.

    So Event 201 and now Cyber Polygon are simulation exercises that allow a wide range of key players to go through “what-if” exercises. They are useful and educative. They can lead governments to have better plans and better resources for when real crises occur.

    The US could have done with a decent pandemic plan around February 2020.

    We discussed some months ago the Great Reset dot-points. They range from sensible and pretty obvious (be nice to your mom) through to hippie-dippie, pie-in-the-sky, techno-narcissism, and the simply naively tone-deaf and out of touch with reality.

    The “transhumanist” shite (electronic bodily add-ons) I thought was particularly egregious, if not totally stupid, if you wish to avoid the cynicism and hostility of the world’s people.

    Europe is spectacular to visit, and we’ve done it several times, but it’s good to remember how fundamentally archaic and reactionary its upper classes are. They are money aristocrats who hate democracy, and abhor open transactions and transparent governance.

    Klaus Schwab wasn’t born into the ruling class, but because of his intelligence and business skills, he now serves them and sups with them. They’re pretty dreadful people, and Davos would make most normal people reach for a bucket.

    They are influential, and shape the financial world and government policies, but they don’t run the world, they didn’t want or cause the pandemic, and they’re not de-populating a crowded planet with eight different vaccines.

    I wish more people on here would understand this. The real cause of the nation’s problems are much closer to home: poverty, low wages, unemployment, race, debt, overstretched cities, decaying infrastructure, rackets in every industry, failing education and health systems, oil, water, and food crises.

    Davos – and conspiracy theories about it – are a distraction from what really ails the populace.

            It has nothing to do with specific areas of Black excellence – such as Delta Blues and basketball that the village idiot has mentioned. Nor is it about the disaster of inner-city crime and social decadence and poverty.

            White people simply do not have the depth of soul, or spirit or culture that is evident in Black People (and I would add a lot of Hispanic and Native Americans into this class as well).

            They have a sense of history, a sense of resilience – and of course they have survived despite huge oppression and hardship.

            In a peculiar sort of way, many minorities have either chosen to not embrace the materialism and consumerism of Capitalism, or they’ve never been invited to the table. They have had to find dignity, happiness, and security in a range of different ways to Whites – family, bible, music, community – and other intangibles.

            This is a complicated subject, and I am certainly not a self-loathing white guy who wishes he were born black – not at all – but I do recognise qualities in minorities that have been almost totally washed out of Whites in the West.

          That “deeply held knowledge” is exclusively yours and that of your fellow travelers, maybe 10% of the white population in the US, delicate hothouse flowers only possible in a civilization that has provided for their every comfort and want.

          Most whites are just constitutionally indifferent to black lives. It’s not hate just complete indifference. It originates imo in the fact that most whites in the US are the descendants of people who came here after the Civil War and they don’t give a damn about slavery. You might as well tell us about the Babylonian Captivity for all the relevance it holds for us.

          One thing the last year has shown in a dramatic light is that the kumbaya dream of incompatible cultures living together in some semblance of order is just not going to happen. The dream of Malcolm X and his buddy George Lincoln Rockwell is the coming reality, just a matter of how and when.

        The conspiracy-minded would seem to seesaw between the Covid-19 being a deadly weapon cooked up in a lab by dark forces, and the whole thing being a hoax, and it’s just a bad cold.

        To all conspiracy-minded,

        Josephine Alexandria has decreed that we must all agree amongst ourselves on all details of all conspiracies before sharing any of our thoughts individually because, sans our consensus, she gets perplexed.

        n. An act intended to deceive or trick.
        n. Something that has been established or accepted by fraudulent means.

        Google CDC, PIC. They (the CDC) admit they count Pneumonia and Influenza as Covid.

        So it’s clear that they’ve muddied the waters as much as possible, right? They admit it. I’m just repeating it. You can see for yourself by googling. You can become one of us. You know how to google, right?

        • Night Owl June 8, 2021 at 2:22 am #

          Like most of our returning banees, Tekapo’s (Cargill’s) reading comprehension is poor.

          “Deadly GOF research” automatically translates to “deadly virus.”

          The idea that the virus has a low kill count and transmissibility; has not been properly isolated (that the public knows of); and, in parallel, the NIH-funded GOF research is unethical and dangerous; is far too much for him to sort out.

          Let us also never forget that in the fevered dreams of Agent Po Po, Donald Trump was The Manchurian Candidate, and that Aliens are real.

          • MaryV June 8, 2021 at 12:01 pm #

          • Tekapo June 8, 2021 at 3:50 pm #

            Very lame, as usual. The conspiracy-minded are caught out in their deceptions and distortions, and are now swinging in the breeze of inconsistency and hypocrisy.

            It’s just a cold this hoax … but also a deadly virus funded by President Trump himself. The “Chyna Virus” could well be the “America Virus” – which no doubt will make you happy.

          • Night Owl June 8, 2021 at 4:03 pm #

            It appears to be a pneumonia.

            And Fauci and Obama funded deadly GOF research, moving it to China to avoid going to prison.

            For a year it’s been the “corona hoax”, now it’s a deadly gain-of-function engineered human pathogen LOL twisting in the breeze yet again.

            Trump had more than three years to stop US funding of coronavirus research in China. He only did so when the shit hit the fan, and they got early reports that a US-funded bug had escaped from a Chinese Lab.

            Ten months out from a tight election, and panic buttons were pushed. Cover-up and obfuscation were their first reaction. Flood the zone with shit, as the crazy Steve Bannon would say.

            I have no evidence for hardly any of this – but it’s as least as plausible as anything else I’ve heard.

    There was a time when Bill Gates was seen as one of the most evil people alive; typing his name into an early internet search engine returned results for terms like antichrist.

    He led the effort to warn of a potential global pandemic (back in 2017, Gates famously said a pandemic was imminent and could lead to the deaths of more than 30 million people), and then, when his vision became reality and COVID-19 obliterated the global economy and killed millions, there he was at the forefront of vaccine research efforts.

    I think the smartest thing anyone can do is abandon hope that some entity or person is going to come forth and set things right… WE have to change – dramatically – if we want this cabal’s overreach to end.

    George Carlin got it:

    “But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education sucks, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that.

    I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want.

    Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking.
    They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. Thats against their interests. Thats right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table to figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you, sooner or later, ’cause they own this fucking place.

    It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. And by the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted folks. The game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people — white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on — good honest hard-working people continue — these are people of modest means — continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all — at all — at all.

    And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on; the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday. Because the owners of this country know the truth: it’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.

    • O.G. Hawkins June 7, 2021 at 9:04 pm #

      George Carlin was an American Hero … but Americans Just nervously laughed because they knew that he was Right but that they’d go home after the show and change absolutely nothing in their American lives.

      Thank you for sharing that, Mary. I’ve seen him do that bit several times but that was the first time that I have read it.

      It’s called Capitalism, and Carlin is not saying anything very new. Karl Marx said it all 170 years ago, and many others have since.

      Capitalists also owns all the media, and they shape the reality that people believe in. It’s why people salute the flag at football games and chant USA! USA! It’s why they think elections are really important.

      And it’s why “socialist” is a slur in America, and on this forum – the people are mind-fucked to equate Capitalism with America. It’s a false reality.

      Some people claim media such as CNN, WaPo, and NYT are from “the left” – but it is really mistaken. They are an integral part of the ideological machine that serves capital – they are big businesses and they rely totally on advertisers and pliant consumers. They do not rock the boat.

      Being anti-Trump or pro-Dem does not make anybody a “leftie”.

            Translation: when I write something you agree with, I speak truth, when it’s something you disagree with, it’s a troll. Very clear.

            Anyway – George Carlin is railing against Capitalism, and who can disagree with that? He is correct in what he says. It’s a rigged game, and most people are losers – toiling all their lives for bare subsistence.

            People applaud him – and then in the next breath cheer and laud the Capitalism he is despising! I think that’s where you could look for your schizophrenia.

            There is no “Real America” of small-town homey businesses that would be just swell if those faceless international elites didn’t hold all the levers of power. That all went out with buggy whips, to the extent it ever existed.

            I think we need a democratic socialist revolution – but I shan’t hold my breath waiting for vast swathes of the working classes to agree with me. And people have got their hands full waiting for NASCAR, defending Dr Seuss, and having the vapours over Critical Race Theory.

            Carlin is railing against the self-serving rich and powerful, i.e., the Big Club®, not capitalism per se, which, by the way, we haven’t seen since at least the establishment of the current US central bank. In other words, the lifetimes of everyone now alive.

            Sure, self-dealing so-called capitalists are among that number, as are self-dealing socialists, self-dealing communists, self-dealing fascists, self-dealing politicians of any bent, self-dealing patriots, self-dealing journalists, self-dealing racists, and on and on.

            Once sufficient numbers of Whites grok to the reality that the Democrat party is the party of Anti-Whiteness, & that their Republican leaders are the weak sisters of that movement, the time of the Republican party as it now exists is over. At that time, there will be a kinetic war, but it will have only faint tinges of class.

            Yes – I have heard this rationale a dozen times but don’t buy it – Capitalism produces, enables, and requires the “self-serving rich and powerful” … that is what it is. The endless labor of the many for the benefit of the few.

            You don’t have an escape hatch, I’m afraid. You’re making a distinction without a difference.

            And ever since the Tea Party days, right through the MAGA days, and onto forums such as this, I have always found it odd that people rail against injustice caused by the rich and powerful – then vote for Republicans, who are their party.

            Do you expect to change any minds with that? Or are you in fact, a paid troll?

            I think it’s very hard to change the views and beliefs of the conspiracy-minded – since they do not require fact, data, science, logic, reasoning … because there is a “great big cause” hovering just out there somewhere that explains everything and causes everything.

            It’s irrational and it’s intellectually lazy. I like trying to discuss things with the minority on here who are not conspiracy theory devotees.

            To me the biggest conspiracy of all is the God Delusion, and fervid adherence to Christianity. Once you buy that, you are of a mind-set to buy anything, it seems to me. I don’t think it’s an accident that nearly 100% of QAnon freaks are fundamental Christians – it’s a mindset.

            The execrable Marjorie Taylor Greene came out yesterday full bottle – doesn’t believe in vaccines, doesn’t believe the virus resulted from mutations, believes Dr Fauci is evil, doesn’t believe in evolution because she believes in God.

            Nothing I could say would ever change derangement of this order, even if I danced a jig naked in the center of Atlanta.

            No I am not a paid troll … who would pay me? And in any case I believe I’m much closer to the general thinking of JHK than many of the wingnuts on here – Night Owl for example repeats the same off-planet stuff over and over, bot-like.

            Maybe he’s the paid troll – paid by that Kraut Konspiracy Kabal that he quotes all the time … as if they’re authoritative.

          • Tate June 10, 2021 at 9:06 am #

            This has been noted before but it’s scarier assuming there is no “great big cause” in control of events than that there is. The conspiracy-minded are that way in part because they suffer deeper paranoias than average, thus it’s an attempt to control their own anxieties & fears, to believe that someone’s in charge, even if that someone has malevolent aims. IDK if any of that is true or not but there is some logic to it.

            On the other hand, conspiracies are rife within human societies so to draw the opposite conclusion that conspiracies don’t exist & that their operations can’t be successful, is stupid. The biggest myth is that large-scale ‘conspiracies of silence’ can’t be successful. The “secret city” (at the time) of Oak Ridge, Tenn. is a prime example how this can work.

            As far as religion, you seem to have a special hatred of it. Sure, unscrupulous people can use it for unscrupulous ends, but so what? MTG is a politician, do you invite a dog to eat at the table with you? Some people do, but any rational person would not, as dogs are shit-nibblers. Same with their disgusting kissing of their canine companions. (Notice Trump didn’t have a dog. A rational man observes things.) Politicians seek power, that’s just the way the world works. That’s why MTG like all the other poodles in Congress, although she speaks many heresies against the prevailing order, will rail against the couple of her colleagues who have the temerity to criticize Israel.

    They make the point in the book that one inherently cannot trust the official establishment “Science” in a fascist technocracy, but they don’t really explain why that is the case?

    The really weird one is where the WHO changed the definition of “pandemic” to fit Covid 19 within the definition of a pandemic. And the WHO also redefined the concept of “Herd Immunity” to mean immunity in the population acquired only by vaccination. This is anti-science since “Herd Immunity” is a naturally resulting condition after a virus blows through a population.

    If I were to venture a theory as to why Establishment “Science” is untrustworthy in a fascist technocracy, it would probably be based on the premise that in a fascist political economy the same people basically own everything such that the same people who pay for the science also pay for the Media who own the drug companies, etc., so that everyone is hugely conflicted such that no one reports the truth out of fear or self-interest? Total mental ClusterFuck….

    Obviously the virologist who noted that the coronavirus was probably engineered has probably been threatened in some way by Fauci, as he has retracted his statements, and taken down his Twittere account.

    Anent greed cards for illegals

    a is b
    b is c
    therefore a is c

    A syllogism. Thus to flesh out these cold letters:

    Immigrants are people
    Not all people are created equal
    Therefore not all immigrants are created equal.

    Pretty simple and obvious to all people of intelligence and good will. The tougher question: Is why did they rule thus? Surely they’re not going to try and save the old United States at this point? I assume it’s just some squaring of the method with the tattered remains of the constitution. They’ll legalize them some other way or wait for Congress to act. Maybe they don’t want to be the actual hangmen of the old America. Let it sit in limbo until the Court and States expand in number a la the Biden Administration.

    In another decision, the Court refused to hear the question of why only men should get drafted. This also is a denial of the new America, but definitely one that serves to preserve it. I’m not sure if that’s good or not at this point. Back to the first ruling: If anyone tried to save America, use the army to close the border, they’d act as one to stop that, right?

    Thus do we twist in the wind. Too weak to live. Too strong to die.

They are the types who are constantly patronizing their pets, whom they refer to as ‘BIPOCs.’ If I were in her position, I would probably feel rage too & fantasize nothing more satisfying than going on a shooting spree & putting a bullet in their stupid heads. She is her own special variety of crazy, of course. But think of the self-satisfied pomposity of these clueless fools. They encouraged her in her delusions every step of the way. Just sayin…

            Here’s confirmation of it from a piece by Kevin MacDonald:

            “[I]n a later interview, Khilanani said she thinks conservatives are “psychologically healthier.” “They are more in touch with their anger and negative feelings. They can articulate it. They can say it, they’re not covering it up or like ‘Oh my god, I’m amazing, I love all people.’ There’s not all this liberal fluff of goodness.””

    We’ve got a whole month of Pride Events to look forward to all over the state. Something for everybody, even the little ones. And everybody is getting in on the act, corporations, town governments, unions churches, even public schools who are sponsoring a poster contest, schools competing against other schools to create the best poster that both embodies and celebrates Gay Life. I’m not sure what the Prize is, maybe just youthful satisfaction of a job well done.

    The crowning event is a Transvestite Talent Show down in W Hartford sometime near the end of the month. That’ll be sweet.

    I went to see the cheesy horror movie “The Conjuring” last weekend. Unfortunately, in the real world, monsters don’t show up late at night wearing grotesque costumes and making loud noises in your bedroom. Real Life monsters are psychopaths who look like everyone else and they don’t kill you by chasing you in dark tunnels with blood curdling screams. Rather, they lie to your face while smiling and they insist that they’re trying to help you and keep you safe. Often, they are politicians, bureaucrats, MSM media personalities and blokes who wear lavender colored sweaters who look like Mr. Rogers. And then they stick little babies with DNA-altering mRNA “vaccines” that don’t work. One would have to inject 254 people with the Pfizer vaccine to prevent 1 Covid-19 infection. One would have to inject 164 people with the Moderna “vaccine” to prevent 1 Covid-19 infection.

    I read about stuff that guys way, way up the food chain, guys like Schwab and Soros, get up to, and I see some of it with my own two eyes, and I laugh. The shit they pulled these last few decades was spectacularly stupid, nothing short of that, in fact, it doesn’t get any stupider.

    They do not seem to grok that the “rights” and legal protections that those guys depend on to maintain their power and wealth don’t come out of nowhere. They only exist in the context of a nation state, which are organizations that have sub-units in the form of laws, legal systems, regulatory bodies, financial systems, currencies, police and military to enforce those rights.

    And it’s those same nation states that they’re doing their damndest to undermine, all in the relentless pursuit of every last denaro in existence, for any humble coin not in their own pockets they regard as a monumental affront to justice.

    I guess they’ve forgotten about that consummate “anywhere” man, one of their own, Carlos Ghosn, former CEO of Nissan, fabulously rich, of indeterminate residence, of uncertain nationality, hobnobber with heads of state and other people like him who move billions and ruin entire countries and continents.

    And so what happened to ole Carlos? Looks like he ran afoul of somebody in that land of compulsively bowing men. See? Mr Ghosn got a few hat sizes too big and some of the Japanese Deep State machinery issued a reminder of who ultimately calls the shots. It’s not guys like Carlos, or Tim Cook, or Jeff Bezos. If you need it spelled out, it’s men with guns and those that command them. Ghosn, a foreigner in Japan, forgot his place.

    Yeah, I know, he got away. “Anywhere” man? More like “nowhere” man, still holed up somewhere in Lebanon, trying to stay out of jail.

    Anyway, again, interest rates are the economy’s blood pressure, and given which, it’s pretty obvious that the global financial and economic system are contrivances that can’t work, that have no hope in hell, the fact of ZIRP in many places and even NIRP in some an illustration of how disheveled this shambling disassemblage has gotten.

    Oh, you want to short this mess? Sure, well, remember that the market can stay irrational a lot longer than you can stay solvent. But it can’t stay this way forever, the wrack and ruin in wide areas of the formerly industrialized west showing that collapse isn’t coming, it’s already here.

      Yes – I have stated very similar things in recent weeks, arguing that the international elites have huge influence, but they have to either be very careful of – or buy off handsomely – those who run national states, and in particular, those who are democratically elected.

      I believe those on here who have a Unified Theory of a vast over-riding world elite with so much power that they control everything – they are hugely mistaken, and the view is both not realistic, and lazy intellectually.

      Firstly, no-one has that much power, second, they compete with each other and are suspicious of each other, and thirdly, there is so much chaos in the world that if there is a ruling world elite, they’re doing a very piss-poor job of running the railroad.

      I agree that near-zero interest rates are both a sign of a dysfunctional money system, and that there are very few ways to cure the disease without also killing the patient.

        I believe the globalist-elite conspiracies are born from an attempt to understand why, and an intuition that, the entire fabric of our world – its assumptions, trajectories, history – is screwed up. It’s off. There’s a deep evil twisting everything. So, maybe it can be explained by elite manipulators who have an evil club through the centuries…

        There is an evil saturating our world, but it’s not explained by an evil club of elite manipulators. It’s explained by the human race’s almost complete dissociation from its natural state, which is to exist as small tribes dependent on wild nature. We have embarked on an experiment with agricultural and technological control over nature’s processes. These methods of control produce surpluses, growth, wealth, civilization, surplus population, slavery, complexity, smartphones. We are addicted to all these things. We are addicted to the short-lived thrills of agro-technical control over nature, to the highs of “success” these mechanisms of control bring.

        Our entire “period of recorded history” is the story of this human experiment with agro-technological control over nature’s processes and the power, surplus and destruction it brings.

        This is the actual source of the “evil” in the fabric of our world… (Of course it springs from natural human proclivity for and attraction to short-sighted successes… a difficulty of long-view foresight… a tendency to stupidity in the species.)

        Fighting “evil elites” won’t fix the problem. Democratic revolt won’t fix the problem… We have to unravel our five-to-ten-millenium addiction to agricultural/technological systems of producing “surplus profit” from our environment

        • MaryV June 8, 2021 at 11:39 am #

    “You will own nothing, and you will be happy about it.”

    Perhaps as jarring as it is and does sound, I also feel that it is an intentional trigger for something that exists deep in the human psyche.

    The reality is that slavery, in many different forms, has actually been quite normative throughout human existence. There is still massive slavery today, but it would appear that the modern world is an outlier from the rest of history in the sense that open slavery in many places is stigmatized and criminalized. But certainly the likes of Davos Man would like to turn the clock back centuries in terms of both basic human rights and the size of the global population.

    ~~For the good of everyone and the earth, of course~~

    And so I do think trepidation of open predation is quite natural. Truly, it is all a never ending story. But rather than reestablishing the old ways it truly seems like the slavemasters have a new vision for the world. Though there is nothing new under the Sun. And with the realization of their dark visions The Nothing does expand further and erases more and more of the world.

        • Tekapo June 8, 2021 at 4:20 pm #

          Here is the full “quote” from the WEF Glossy Brochure for their Vision 2030:

          “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.
          Whatever you want you’ll rent, and it’ll be delivered by drone.”

          It is fatuous, juvenile, 9th Grade brochure writing … dreamt up presumably by the millennials in the back rooms of the WEF, after a six-hour brainstorming session, fuelled no doubt by vegan pizzas and soy milk.

          And it is untrue and counter-intuitive … anything small I want to consume might be drone-deliverable, but everything other than perhaps a smartphone that I would be likely to rent would be far too big to drone, and how could I return it at the end of the lease period?

          It is ridiculous copy writing, and so are several of the others on their list of 8.

          If these are the people who are going to run The Great Reset and the New World Order – even the most paranoid on here have very little to worry about. If the Glossy Brochure is any guide, this outfit couldn’t organise [insert favorite saying here].

      The plan to expand control through medical tyranny is not new, but IMO has the most likely chance of success at this point in history. We have enjoyed an unparalleled amount of freedom to live a fulfilling life.

      What they have done with the Corona Hoax in every country is use their puppets (many brought up through the WEF Young Leaders org.) to override established law by invoking emergency powers and attempting to codify permanent powers based on states of emergency.

      That is exactly what was done here in Germany when they changed the Bundesverfassung twice, with the second time adding a paragraph giving them the right to limit bodily sanctity.

      The pre-planning of the Covid-based passport (ID2020 project) started long ago. And the prototypes that I have seen prior to the recent release correspond directly with the charts on the WEF Website. The same passport is coming to the US, which is why some states have now preemptively banned them.

      US Federalism appears to still be strong enough to ward off the worst of what is coming right now. But over here in Europe, we are on the proverbial knife’s edge. We are one decision away from forced vaccination of children and a the ID.

      The criminals behind this fraud are working overtime to cement things in a way that cannot be undone. We are not quite there yet, but they are clearly not giving up.

        Yes, I sense here in the US they will not give up either and fully anticipate that they will pull off (or attempt to) another event/incident in order to reestablish full lockdowns and then vaccination mandates and passports. Perhaps the vaccines, which appear to actually increase covid case rates, will play a role in seeding new outbreaks which would set the tone for new restrictions. I do agree with you that the medical tyranny route seems to be their most successful ploy to date because such a large segment of the population is willing to entertain whatever restrictions and recommendations they are handed from their “experts” and “scientists”. And there is a natural human reaction to care for the sick and they want to use that care and concern for the bad. To increase repressive positive feedback loops in social behavior.

    Efficacy…,

    “ In a November 26, 2020, BMJ article, Peter Doshi, associate editor of the journal, pointed out that while Pfizer claims its vaccine has a 95 percent efficacy rate, this is the relative risk reduction. The absolute risk reduction is actually less than 1 percent.6 In a later article Doshi presented yet additional concerns.7 For starters he points out that Pfizer did not consistently confirm whether test subjects who showed symptoms of COVID-19 were actually PCR-positive. Instead, a large portion of them were simply marked as “suspected COVID-19.” The problem with this is that the 95 percent efficacy rating is based on PCR-confirmed cases only. Since the data show there are 20 times more suspected cases than confirmed cases, the relative risk reduction may actually be as low as 19 percent, Doshi said, which is far below the 50 percent efficacy required for use authorization by regulators. What’s more, if suspected cases occurred in people who had false negative PCR test results, then the vaccine’s efficacy would be even lower. Yet another data point that might have a bearing on Pfizer’s efficacy rate was the exclusion of 371 participants from its efficacy analysis due to “important protocol deviations on or prior to 7 days after Dose 2.” Of those, 311 were from the vaccine group while only 60 were in the placebo group. Why were five times as many in the vaccine group excluded from the efficacy analysis than in the placebo group? And what exactly were these “protocol deviations” that caused them to be excluded? This is called stacking the deck so the results can be manipulated in the desired direction to “prove” efficacy, when it is merely a statistical manipulation. Will COVID-19 Vaccine Save Lives, Reduce Hospitalizations, or Prevent Transmission? Doshi has also pointed out that current trials are not designed to tell us whether the vaccines will actually save lives. And if they don’t, are they really worth the risks that might be involved? “What will it mean exactly when a vaccine is declared ‘effective’?,” he asks in his November 26 article. “To the public this seems fairly obvious. ‘The primary goal of a COVID-19 vaccine is to keep people from getting very sick and dying,’ a National Public Radio broadcast said bluntly … Yet the current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either. None of the trials [were] designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths.”8 Nor do the trials tell us anything about the vaccine’s ability to prevent asymptomatic infection and transmission, as this would require testing volunteers twice a week for long periods of time—a strategy that is “operationally untenable,” according to Tal Zaks, chief medical officer at Moderna.9”

      Very interesting post! Almost as if the vaccine was not really supposed to be effective at stopping covid at all. Or at least that doesn’t seem to be a primary concern of Pfizer at least given this information. And so if the vaccine is not effective in preventing covid infections, what is it meant to be effective for?

      “In a November 26, 2020, BMJ article, Peter Doshi, associate editor of the journal, pointed out that while Pfizer claims its vaccine has a 95 percent efficacy rate, this is the relative risk reduction. The absolute risk reduction is actually less than 1 percent.”

      Lots of drugs are sold this way, the statin drugs being one example. The mathematically-challenged (most people) buy into it without exception.

      Good question.

      Has anybody heard the name ‘Cash Gernon’ lately?

      No?

      I’m hearing about ‘George Floyd’ every day; our local media is still flogging his ‘Murder’. Floyd’s image is painted on giant murals on the side of abandoned buildings all over Hartford. The Mayor recently declaring Hartford “a center for the arts” might be nothing more than a ploy to give cover and legitimacy to this vandalism and grafitti, which is jarring when first viewed.

      It seems like ‘The Arts’, or becoming a “center of the arts” is a default position for these failed, dystopic cities, when all else has failed, and drive by shootings become commonplace.

Especially in regards to the somewhat slow roll Islamic takeover. It would be amazing if France suddenly became an actual protector and champion of Western Civ. And some are saying Le Pen has a good chance at defeating Macron in the upcoming election.

    It was late, they wanted to end their shift, they were waiting for more batches of votes to come in from precincts all over the state … they ducked out for a smoke …
    =====================================================

    oh, so that explains it. for the first time ever, halting of the presidential election vote tabulation stopped in 6 states at the same time because the counters were tired and wanted a smoke, and there were no more votes to count, even though 80 million unsolicited ballots had been sent out but millions were still undelivered, in all six states, at the same time.

    • Tekapo June 8, 2021 at 5:00 pm #

      Note that not one state that significantly increased their mail-in voting flipped from Trump 2016 to Biden 2020. Not one.

      In other words, the six states that flipped to Biden in 2020 either already had extensive mail-in voting from 2016, or they didn’t change their system much between 2016 and 2020.

      That mail-in voting leads to more electoral fraud is a myth.

      • MrMangoOnMyShoulder June 9, 2021 at 12:50 pm #

        First, ,who cares what happened in 2016 vs 2020, Sir Strawman? People are talking about 2020. Eyes on the issue, not creating your own new one, as you are wont to do.

        Second, why do a majority of nations around the world not allow mail-in ballots? For example, why did France ban mail-in voting in the 1970s (due to voter fraud) if it’s a myth that it can increase voter fraud? Or is it that we’re just smarter than all of them?

        Admit it, you didn’t put any thought into your post, did you…it’s okay, we know.

    • Tekapo June 8, 2021 at 7:40 pm #

      oh, so that explains it.

      Well … have you considered the alternative?

      That in the six critical states, dark forces could secretly coordinate simultaneous vote stoppages and flips, AND that they all those states had connected, hackable software AND dozens of election workers have colluded to swing the vote AND that mostly Republican election officials were part of the sting, risking serious felony charges AND mostly Republican secretaries of state wilfully certified false count AND rigged manual manual recounts AND fraudulently signed off on Electoral College electors, AND all these people were vehemently anti-Trump, AND not one Trump lawyer figured this out, AND not one Trump lawyer was able to find an uncorrupted judge to hear the evidence … and, and …

      I don’t know about you, but in the face of this long list of necessary conditions, I tend to believe a few workers wanted to duck out for a smoke 🙂

      And no doubt to the relief of many, I will cease from now on arguing why the 2020 Election has not been proven at any point to have been fraudulent. It is not the same thing as saying they were fair and honest – but to date no state has revised or reversed their position – that they ran fair and honest elections.

      The exercise in Arizona lacks credibility – and in fact it’s dragging on and on with no bombshell leaks at all, which I find unusual.

      Have a great day!

          Your paraphrasing is both incorrect, and egregiously illogical.

          Take note of the (only) correct reading: I have never said the election was fair and honest, obviously because I’m not in a position to prove the negative (no fraudulent votes).

          But I accept that it was honest, given that 50 states (mostly Republican controlled) have solemnly certified that they were, AND those who claim it was fraudulent have the onus upon them to prove their case, and they have spectacularly failed to do so.

          You’ve had more than seven months! How much time do you think you’re entitled to?

    CFN’rs,

    Time to “open the Kimono”…do you have the CUD?

    Newsmax, (a site you can trust) has reported on a new syndrome, “Cannabis Users Disorder”.

    https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/drg-gen-gov-hea/2021/06/08/id/1024289/

    Apparently, chronic users of “Mary Jane”, (and I would suspect that most of the readership is heavily invested in it’s use) will suffer this terrible disease (Especially Yo, who has repeatedly suggested that I might benefit greatly from it’s use).

    It is not a time to point fingers, however. The wretched victims of this disease are to be treated with a guarded respect… the same as AID’s sufferers, their catamites, or Democrats.

    A short documentary will describe the symptoms…at the time, there is no cure. A link downstream will be provided.

        I usually don’t wade into all the racial talk on CFN, Heckler, but I do have 2 things to say:

        1) Weed being ilLegal and a felony for possession of small amounts has destroyed millions of young Americans’ lives in a ridiculous prohibition of a harmless substance.

        Had the USA retained Freedom vis-a-vis Mary Jane and taxed its Legal consumption like it does alcohol, organized crime would take a Big hit (pun intended) at all levels as would the USA’s weirdly unique Big Incaceration industry.

        People are going to smoke weed regardless Just as people went to speakeasies during Al Capone’s day.

        2) When in Paris with my son in 2014, our accomodations were in an apartment in a vast majority black community. I didn’t realize the difference Right away and then my son, only 16 at the time, hit the nail on the head:

        “Have you noticed how the young black men here are not threatening? See? It is not nature, it’s nurture.”

        We were there a few more days and I did notice after that. I remember walking back to our apartment 1 night and walking by a line-up to get in a packed, loud bar on an otherwise quiet street. Dozens of young blackmen and me, a 49 year-old white guy from Canada. Most completely ignored me. A couple smiled at me.

        That was Paris. I did not feel the same in Atlanta a couple of months earlier.

      Way back in high school when I first tried cannabis and finally understood the real “danger”, I knew it would never be legalized. It’s the perfect crime! Calls for non-stop surveillance and asset forfeiture.

      So when legalization began spreading from sea to shining sea, I was kinda surprised. Now I get it. Legalize cannabis so people can get “addicted”*, then spend a lifetime using dangerous and expensive pharmaceuticals to “get their life back”.

      *Cannabis has never been found to be physiologically addictive. Like anything – Twinkies, porn, trolling – it can become psychologically addictive. Why aren’t we being protected from everything?

    • MrMangoOnMyShoulder June 8, 2021 at 11:34 am #

      I also have noticed that everything “bad” they come up with to harp on, be it climate change, health care, supply shortages, education, available pizza toppings…nearly every story talking about these things has to mention that it always affects people of color more than the rest. They rarely offer exactly how it does, just that it does. What about the people in those same neighborhoods that are not of color? Must not affect them.

      One example I’ve heard is that temperatures in cities are on average 1 degree warmer than out in the country, therefore POC are taking the brunt of climate change…that’s a matter of location/demographics, not racism, folks. Cities are always warmer than the country by nature of concrete/asphalt/windblocks. Move if you’re hot.

      Another they cite is lack of trees. Ummm, I had a house in north Mpls for about 5 years in my late 20’s, there were more trees than we knew what to do with, 80 yr-old trees canopy the streets and yeards in every neighborhood there. Stupid theory.

      Sure, in some cases it may, I’m just pointing out that this now has to be inserted into every story somehow, as if it’s a given. Kinda like “the geese are not in their normal numbers on Lake Crankyank this year, scientists are baffled, though most point to climate change as the culprit.”

      Or…they could just say, “Huh. We don’t know, we’re looking into where the hell they went this year.”

      But it’s the narrative that has to be pushed. So droningly obvious, you can almost quote it before they say it.

      • MaryV June 8, 2021 at 7:55 pm #

        They’ve created knee-jerk narratives and sound bytes, that are repeated ad nauseam (and climate change being racist is a big one – I had to hear that over and over when I sat on a sustainability committee at my college, so I left the committee).

            Yes I did, Yoho. A couple nights ago as a matter of fact. I mainly use TV for live sports but caught some Canadian news before a Big NHL Playoff Game.

            There were a couple of jabbings completely out of context. Maybe a second. Jab. Jab.

            We are inundated with jabs on our TVs in Canada. And kids playing hockey. And kids hugging Grandma. Jabbed-percentage thresholds are being set for our return to “normal” and I flip the bird at my TV every single time these propaganda messages are shown.

            That and 215. 215 native children’s bodies discovered in Kamloops with new Earth-pentrating radar technology. The Orange Ribbons are on every lapel like Poppies in early November. Uniform.

            Our TV never specifies if our dear Queen Lizard drained any of those particular 215 herself.
