Here is why the “Joe Biden” regime only has a few months to live: it is caught in a squeeze between some of the greatest lies in world history, and they’re all unraveling now. Anyway, “Joe Biden” is not really functioning as president of the US; he’s just the doddering, photo-op front-man for a kind of politburo centered around Barack Obama, and that group lives in terror of being found-out, which it will be, despite its capture of the traditional news and social media.

Big Lie No. 1 is actually a whole bundle of lies surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. The chief national health official, Dr. Anthony Fauci (a.k.a. “The Science”) can’t get his story straight about whether or not he funneled US taxpayer money to a lab associated with China’s People’s Liberation Army, to engineer a virus that was turned loose on the rest of the world. An email train of evidence shows that he did.

That was bad enough. Then Dr. Fauci (and most of the nation’s medical bureaucracy) worked hard to suppress cheap and effective treatments that defeated the virus and cured patients if used in the early stages of infection, namely, Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, Vitamin D, and Fluoxetine. (Fluoxetine, or Prozac, used “off-label,” modulates brain inflammation.) The suppression actively continues to this day. Dr. Fauci & Company promoted the use of a PCR viral testing system run at excessive cycle thresholds that flooded the medical system with false positive tests. The test’s inventor, (Nobel Prize winner) the late Dr. Kary Mullis,said the test was never meant to be used as a diagnostic tool.

Dr. Fauci and the medical bureaucracy are promoting an experimental “gene therapy” as “vaccines,” or so says the man who invented the mRNA vaccine procedure, Dr. Robert Malone — and you can hear him say that in this three-hour-plus roundtable discussion on Bret Weinstein’s Dark Horse YouTube podcast (if it hasn’t been taken down by the time you read this, because to-date YouTube suppresses all mention of Ivermectin, etc.). You will learn in this detailed discussion that the three vaccines being used have produced more deaths and “adverse events” in aggregate than all the other vaccines medicine has developed over the past thirty years. Let that sink in. You will also hear Dr. Malone describe the spike protein, which is the chief mechanism activated by the vaccines, as a “toxic” agent.

This cannot be good news for the millions who gave their consent to be vaccinated. We have no idea what the long-term effects will be, but it’s apparently the case that the toxic spike protein does not behave the way it was supposed to. That is, it does not remain in the intramuscular vaccination site, but rather migrates all through the body, with a special affinity for causing cardiovascular mischief, neuromuscular disorders, and damage to reproductive organs. Stand by on how all this works out. And beware of fresh attempts by your government to coerce you into a vaccination, or a series of them.

This is a fast-developing story, obviously with many sub-plots, but the net effect for “Joe Biden” will be to badly erode whatever shreds of legitimacy still hang on him. News about vaccine deaths and “adverse events” has also been suppressed, but that effort appears to be falling apart now, even as the government ratchets-up pressure to jab the substantial number of the “vaccine hesitant.” (Count me as “vaccine fuggeddabowdit” on this one.) Okay, that’s Big Lie No. 1.

Big Lie No. 2 is that “Joe Biden” won the Nov 3, 2020 presidential election. That colossal scam, which the Democratic party advertised well in advance, and accomplished via blatant mail-in ballot fraud and computer voting machine tweaking, was never properly adjudicated — despite media claims that court cases were dismissed on the basis of evidence, which was not so. The Arizona vote audit underway is the first of probably many efforts among the so-called swing states to interrogate that operation. The “Joe Biden” government tried and failed to shut down the AZ audit early in the game. Then, late last Friday, Attorney General Merrick Garland upped the ante, saying that he was about to send a gang of federal attorneys down AZ-way to scotch the darn thing.

Recall that, constitutionally, elections are conducted entirely under the prerogatives of each state, not the national government. The AZ audit was ordered by the Arizona State Senate. State Senator (and former fighter pilot) Wendy Rogers, replied to AG Garland, “You will not touch Arizona ballots or machines unless you want to spend time in an Arizona prison. Maybe you should focus on stopping terrorism.” The next move is Mr. Garland’s. Will he send in federal marshals to seize the ballots and Dominion machines? Or will “Joe Biden” tell AZ Governor Doug Ducey to sic the national guard on his own state senate?  If you want to start a real civil war, that would be a good way to kick it off.

Other state legislatures have sent delegations down to Arizona to observe and familiarize themselves with the audit procedure, with the prospect of doing the same thing in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and other places where janky outcomes were seen in key counties last November. The Democrats know this is possibly lethal to their control of national affairs. Any way they move now, the result will lead to a desperate loss of legitimacy, especially at the top, where “Joe Biden” dwells.

The third “Big Lie” is that the US economy is “recovering” from the Covid-19 disruptions. The US economy has been a Potemkin village since 2008, held together with the baling wire and duct tape of Federal Reserve money games and, more so lately, US government fiscal recklessness — i.e., spending vast amounts of borrowed money on direct payments to broke citizens, broke businesses, and, apparently an equal number of outright crooks who just gamed the various bailout categories.

For now, many places are supposedly caught up in the exuberant reopening of daily life activities: restaurants, travel-and-leisure businesses, big league sports. Sounds good, maybe, but the frothy feeling is belied by the still-boarded-up shopfronts and the expanding homeless campgrounds of the big cities and by the noises made by big corporations laying off thousands of employees. One narrative says that many service jobs go begging because too many people still receive government handouts that add up to more than such jobs pay. And some businesses, such as restaurants, say they are offering much higher wages than they used to in a desperate effort to keep operating.

Okay… but consider how long you can run a restaurant paying dishwashers $25-an-hour, for example, especially considering how much of the population is too broke now to eat in restaurants that charge a third-again as much for dinner as they did before Covid-19. What you’re actually looking at is a broken business model for much of the service industry. Sometime this summer, that pretty big problem will be acknowledged, and the nation will see that we are not in a recovery at all, but rather a permanent contraction that will be labeled “a depression.”

Actually, it will not be a “depression,” either, exactly, which implies a cyclical dip, even a big one, because the cycle itself is broken — and to understand that, you must delve into the nature of the long emergency: the energy resource and capital scarcity quandary facing techno-industrial societies. The direct implication of this broken cycle will be even more social distress, which is being aggravated by the racial provocations ginned up by the Woke “Joe Biden” regime, and which will blow up in its face if there is another summer of riots, burning, and looting.

So, to conclude this unusually long edition of the CFN blog, you can see the horizon on the “Joe Biden” administration, with sunset probably due this fall. How it will play-out is anybody’s guess. Mine is that, one way or another, some military caretaker administration may have to interrupt the 232-year-long cavalcade of governance led by legitimately-elected presidents. Perhaps we’ll run a re-do of the last election. Or maybe we’re in for a new phase of the American project, a more uncertain and less appetizing one, featuring dictators and despots. Or maybe we’ll get through this very dangerous defile of history and land in a much lower-key but more coherent disposition of things recognizably American. Stay tuned for developments.

    Being priced out of these insane houses makes me feel more and more disconnected from this society. I have no idea how my family and I will ever afford a house. Esp when you have blackrock et al buying up houses and turning us into a renter nation.

    I buy silver and crypto (yes I know crypto is hated around here, but if you have any recommendations let me know). Other than that, I feel like my generation and younger is completely screwed.

      I felt the same way in 1979 during stagflation, and then Industry started moving out and taking the jobs with them. but in 1980 Reagan got elected and it got better.

      • Amman June 14, 2021 at 3:09 pm #

      • gonetohell June 15, 2021 at 11:09 pm #

        Since the only jobs left are service jobs, it’s going to be hard for industry to move those out. And, Reagan was the beginning of the end for a middle class used to livable wages. Not much of a history buff are you?

    • draupnir June 14, 2021 at 10:16 am #

      There are intimations, including one from Luc Montagnier, a Nobel Prize winner in medicine from a few years back, that nothing good will come from taking the vaccination. Dr. Montagnier has stated in a video that there’s no hope for the vaccinated. I hope he’s wrong, as my siblings and all of their grown children have been good little citizens and taken their shots, but a large group of lawyers and physicians are charging the makers and distributors of these vaccines with crimes against humanity. We have been able to discern the increasing desperation of the federal government over the last several months to get vaccines into arms at any cost. To resort to offering prizes is a dead giveaway that there is a lot more “hesitancy” then they are willing to admit, and they are trying to scoop up the last of the suckers. If Dr. Montagnier is correct, within the next few years the price of homes and used cars may drop precipitously and whatever is left of the government is going to be in hiding, and I doubt that Blackrock will survive the upheaval.

      • Beryl of Oyl June 14, 2021 at 10:21 am #

        It seems as if they are trying to trick everybody into thinking they should get the vaccine now, because they fear they aren’t going to get to the stage where they can legally force it on everyone.

        • Night Owl June 14, 2021 at 10:33 am #

          To get there, they need about 80 percent of the populace in most Western countries. Several WEF cronies have mentioned 70-80 percent on many occasions. They talk in euphemisms about saving people, but the number they are aiming for is clear.

          The plan after that would simply be to bully the remainers, and the 10 percent or so that they know will never take it will be pushed mostly out of society. For now they can hide behind the lie that it isn’t mandatory if the government doesn’t mandate it, while the big box stores and the rest of the corporations involved in the Great Reset will simply stop serving the unvaxxed.

          These people are sick fucks.

            That is why I prepped.

            Can’t go to the store? I’ve prepped for that.
            Loss of income? I’ve prepped for that.
            Loss of banking services? I’ve prepped for that.
            Loss of utilities? I’ve prepped for that.
            DEFENSE – I’ve prepped for that.

            Those living under the heels of vaccine Karens have sacrificed their lives. The consequences will be arriving shortly and my preps will hold me long enough to see it all play out.

          • draupnir June 14, 2021 at 12:03 pm #

            Ill effects may be showing up by autumn, some already are. and then the whole thing falls apart. There was a massive leap in deaths from the vaccine–over 700 last week alone. I doubt Joe will get his 70% by the 4th of July. There is really nothing they can use to bully me into getting it. I don’t do doctors and I don’t take needles.

          • lizharmon June 14, 2021 at 12:08 pm #

            The beauty of this is that I cancelled the big boxes and the rest of Woke Corpsterdom before they cancelled me. I have skills that can help them profit. They don’t get those skills. They don’t get my business. This is really very easy. If the 30% of America who understands what they’re doing stands up to them and tells them to go fuck themselves, this gets fixed pronto.

            NickelthroweR, you’ve got that right. These are the days JHK has told us were coming. We knew it wasn’t going to be pretty. I still have a job, but expect to tell my employer pretty soon that I do not consent to be medicated in the fashion proposed.
            The constant propagandizing of the TV here (in Japan, which was bullied with economic threats into accelerating is mass vaxx campaign) and the spectacle of people lining up eagerly, unaware of any or the warnings that have come out just chill me to the bone. I guess if we are going to have corporate Stalinism, as John Michael Greer put it, we are going to need a corporate Holodomor. Japan’s a pushover, and I’ll be bullied to the periphery and hated by stupid relatives, but this is what I prepared for.

          They already know they can’t legally force any ‘EUA” experimental gene therapy on anyone. Apparently, more and more people are learning that too, hence the growing hesitancy, and the need for the bribes to be an experiment test subject. Without ‘informed consent’ no less.
          It is also illegal for any 3rd party to require your private medical records, without your consent, or at least a violation of HIPPA regs.
          To get around that, they enter all of the test subjects into a new DB for their ‘health passports’. That way they don’t need to violate HIPPA or any other medical privacy laws.
          This entire Covid scam is about to implode, which is why the perpetrators are getting desperate, and impatient, but that will only wake more and more sheep up.

          • MaryQueen June 17, 2021 at 10:30 am #

            I truly hope so, Justin. I am seeing massive issues within the travel industry – mainly, the airline industry. Given a wide-spread reaction to the vaccines is thrombosis, which is also something that can happen on a flight even without a poison jab helping you along, the airlines are starting to get some serious incidents onboard.

            A friend reports that a man installed an engine incorrectly after getting the jab, he got the dementia side effect (prions) and the plane crashed.

            I suppose we shall be seeing all sorts of ‘mishaps’ going forward as long as people are being forcefully or willfully poisoned.

          • Tekapo June 17, 2021 at 3:55 pm #

            A friend reports that a man installed an engine incorrectly after getting the jab, he got the dementia side effect (prions) and the plane crashed.

            You sure come up with some doozies … and always so well sourced and verified.

      • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 12:13 pm #

        So, the smart play for those not taking the jabs is to hole up with your preps and wait for the mass die-off. Then take your pick of the leavings of the dead.

        If that ain’t “Apocalpse Now,” what is?

        This might be the outcome if the worst fears come to pass.

        • Justin June 16, 2021 at 3:31 pm #

        My local grocery store, part of a huge national chain, had a “masks encouraged for the unvaccinated” sign up for two weeks, then nothing for two weeks. About half the customers not wearing masks. Yesterday the “masks encouraged” sign was back up complemented by new PR health/safety blasts interspersing the Muzak. “They” are going into a high-speed wobble.

        • MaryQueen June 15, 2021 at 9:53 am #

          “Encouraged” means nothing. There is no science or law to back “encouraged”. Signs here still say “required” I think but they are ignored now that the mask order is gone.

          There are places where stores won’t survive if they require masks or vaccine passports.

      • Hands4u June 14, 2021 at 4:01 pm #

        Jim, I hope you’re right. If it were to reflect what happened in Ecuador, S.A. In the 60’s, the military of Ecuador took over their government/country to then create a mileau of stability and then released control until an appropriate democratic election could be held. They have taken back partial control once since then but have continued to have democratic elections.

        Do you have a verified source for this? The one I saw on the loopy end of Twitter a month or so ago sounds very similar, but was thoroughly debunked.

    • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 10:40 am #

      You are not alone. Some of us around here have been attempted to buy or build a house for DECADES…….only to be frustrated at every turn. When you have money, the damned interest rates are too high and push you out of the market. When the interest rates are low, the prices are too high, pushing you out of the market. And….on those rare occasions when there is affordable housing inventory and low interest rates, MURPHY comes knocking and throws you out of work and wrecks your credit.

      I’m speaking as a person born in the early 1960’s, at the tail-end of the ‘boomer” generation. It’s not just GenX’ers and Millenials, etc who struggle to afford homes in the modern era.

      The fact of the matter is that the affordable American Dream started flying off the rails in the early 1970’s when Nixon remove GOLD as the backing for the U.S. Dollar, freeing up the Fed and the Treasury to print all the funny money they wanted to. Spending exploded and so did inflation, and while inflation has waxed and waned over the years, the fact of the matter is that the middle class has been falling behind with stagnant wages and diminishing upward mobility since 1971.

      This clusterfuck economy did not happen overnight in 2008. It has been a long emergency in the making going on for half a century now.

          We just purchased a 37ft. travel trailer and plan on putting it somewhere on decent land. All we need is a septic of some kind and a water source, preferably a well or spring. We are presently going to load it with solar so we can be reasonably self sufficient with power. We expect we will have to live in it illegally since there are so many zoning regulations against this sort of living (and we all know why that is the case). Best to check the local area to get a read on whether they are the type of people who want to be left alone or they are the type who want to force conformity. I am assuming suburban areas and McMansion enclaves will not be on our short list. I am assuming as things unravel, the “authorities” will be unable to stop the increasing tide of more people finding other alternative living arrangements.

          • Tekapo June 14, 2021 at 1:25 pm #

            Good luck with it.

            I agree you need to do the research on local authorities, hopefully finding a county where living off the grid is “normal” – or at least not stigmatised, and where there will be a reasonable density of good neighbours doing similar things on their five acres.

            I also think climate is really important, and obviously you need to be clear of flood and fire zones – in an area not too hot and not too cold, and with adequate rainfall.

            There are areas of Northern California that could fit the bill, but if it were me, I would look at somewhere around Appalachia – eastern Kentucky, Tennessee, WV, or Virginia, or the Carolinas hinterland . Somewhere also with a bit of elevation to get above the fug of pollution at sea level.

            A couple off shipping containers would be really handy too – as store-rooms or a workshop, and can also function as windbreaks.

            Security might be an issue in the very long term, but it’s hard bordering on impossible to defend rural acreage. And you don’t want to be so remote that it’s a long haul to town … you’ll want to be able to walk in, or ride a bike or horse.

          • Tekapo June 14, 2021 at 2:08 pm #

            I’m always dismayed by the advice people start giving about where to move to for the upcoming long emergency. First, climate; make sure it is not too hot or too cold.

            Then make sure you are close to water or have a decent aquifer to drill a well. Can’t be close to a city. Can’t be too far away from a town, because you will have to walk or ride a bike. (What town? You mean where the supermarkets are going to continue to be?) Must have good soil for your garden.

            Keep it small so you can defend it. Avoid a place prone to tornados, hurricanes or typhoons. (This excludes the entire midwest, southeast, and east coast).

            Avoid anyplace with bugs (!??!). While you are at it, avoid wolves, bears, poisonous snakes, and vermin.

            Make sure it is someplace not prone to droughts or floods. This rules out most of the West.

            In other words, locate the Garden of Eden and move there. The closest thing at one time might have been the Northwest or Northern California, but now those places are plagued with fires, water shortages, and too many people. The best land is already owned by the 1%ers.

            The reality is, life is going to be shitty on multiple levels. If you aren’t in a community that as some agreement for mutual protection, you are going to fall asleep behind your sandbags holding your AR15 or M1A and someone is going to steal your tomatoes, chickens, cattle, firewood, and shovels, not to mention your hoes, LOL.

            There’s a reason Medieval cities had walls around them.

            I’m always dismayed by the advice people start giving about where to move to for the upcoming long emergency. First, climate; make sure it is not too hot or too cold.

            Why are you dismayed – just because others have a point of view? Do you not welcome discussion?

            Of course it’s a series of compromises – solving multiple simultaneous equations to find the maximal point for any particular family … no-one claimed a Garden of Eden.

            It also depends on what you are “doing” it for. There is a big difference between going rural and getting off the grid because you’re sick of mainstream society, and wish to be self-sufficient – and doing it because you believe that a genuine collapse is likely.

            I don’t think it’s the latter – every generation believes they are The One – where something big will happen, but inevitably time’s arrow moves along, and everyone is just older (and in some cases, I dare say a trifle disappointed – like some preppers I expect).

            In either case, I think a commune (or tight community) will be pretty-much essential – and also more pleasant – you can swap eggs for pumpkins, etc. You can teach children to read. But will the good burghers of the Virginia Hills who’ve been there since 1750 welcome city-slickers?

            If the situation gets so bad that your local town ceases to function, then you’re probably fucked anyway. Join a band and become a hunter-gatherer. At least have some fun and excitement for the last year of your life.

        • lizharmon June 14, 2021 at 12:12 pm #

          If you’re going to move to the country, you need to pick a town that looks like Methville. If you don’t, you will be overrun with cidiots fleeing the very shitholes they were complicit in creating.

          • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 12:16 pm #

            But then you have the Methheads burglarizing your place every 3 days trying to finance their addiction.

            The body count at the property line would become a problem after a short while.

            Not to mention dealing with necessity of burials to prevent outbreaks of disease.

            I think I’ll pass on the Meth infested Hicksvilles.

          • O.G. Hawkins June 14, 2021 at 12:37 pm #

            Good point, Wiz. If you settle near a wooded area, you may want to build a small, functional crematorium. A little investment up front could save a ton of digging on the back-end.

          • NickelthroweR June 14, 2021 at 12:47 pm #

            That is exactly what I did – Methville. I’m not too worried about the methheads and opioid addicts overrunning anything because they are very sick, very poor and not very creative. Also, the people here are so poorly educated that I do not worry much about them overcoming all the little surprises I have in store for them.

            Out here in the rural flyover land, we don’t have a grid road network like the cities have. There is only one road that can bring you to me – that’s it. You could, I guess, try to hack your way through the forest but you’ll die of exhaustion before you get 100 yards.

            That just leaves one path and I’ve programmed the drone to auto-scout it so I do not have to. Oh yeah, trying to do it at night wont help the methheads either. I can see in the dark.

            This wont be true in the cities and suburbs where the threat can come at you 360 degrees. Hard to defend everything.

        Houses and homes are two different concepts. Here in ‘Merica, a house is a bank asset, and a govt. tax base asset. Last week we got a notice from our local taxing authorities that our house has been reassessed and guess what, now we get to pay more taxes. I swear they just plan on taking everything that we think is ours.

        • Beryl of Oyl June 14, 2021 at 11:10 am #

          That happened to many in my already high-taxed municipality during the last government engineered bubble.

        Before FDR, a home mortgage usually involved 50% down and 7 years of payments. Then for a long time it was 20% down and 20 years. Now, it’s zero down and 30 years.

        The alleged goal is to help people become homeowners. The actual impact is inflated home prices and lifetime debt slavery.

        In case that wasn’t a rich enough cake, they smeared on student debt frosting and garnished with credit card cherries. Welcome to debt slavery. Out of bread? Eat your cake.

      Being a hard currency metal guy who also owns some mining stocks, I was very resistant to crypto; until I saw may 32 yo son make and keep over $50k on a $4k investment over 3 months and then get out before the recent correction. There are obviously lots of cryptos that are worthless junk (probably a majority of the 5000+), but those like Ethereum (ETH), Theta, Chainlink, and ADA, to name a few, have very serious and functional international networks for finance and other legit activity (e.g. Theta provides massive bandwidth for Sony, et al). These networks are in operation now, esp in Europe and Asia (amerikans are always late to new and emergent financial developments). Also check out Monero and Pirate Chain, both privacy coins that might be useful when the govmint raises taxes again and again to cover their profligate spending. NOT financial advice, as I am a Physician not a CFA, but after doing a lot of due diligence, I am convinced that cryptos (maybe even including the USDC, aka fedcoin, which you all WILL be using by 2022 per recent legislation) are the future of money; no more dirty bills that carry Cov.

      • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 12:25 pm #

        Doc,

        Congratulations on your son’s acumen and good fortune. Sincerely.

        But….don’t you get the feeling that your son simply played a game at the Crypto Casino and had enough sense to cash-in his chips and leave the table before the game ended?

        Crypto still feels like a Ponzi scheme to me that will end badly for those left holding the bag and a lot of worthless digital wallets when the governments of the world inevitably ban these things or nationalize them.

        • Hereward the Woke June 14, 2021 at 12:59 pm #

          Wizard. Good question. Taking a ride on the Bitcoin dragon for short-mid term profit is one thing; investing everything in it as the “next big thing” is crazy. And we should all be asking: why is the Deep State allowing crypto to build up? My guess: so they can take it over later and have Fedcoin TM.

          • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 11:45 pm #

            Hereward: My view is that the only advantages of Bitcoin are portability and privacy. So, it has it’s uses. But I would never keep very much money in Bitcoin. It is too volatile. It also appears to draw a lot of negative attention from government authorities who increasingly view Bitcoin users as all being either terrorists or crooks.

            So, I’m not 100% against crypto, just very wary and I do not see it as a perfect substitute for honest money – i.e. (gold and silver).

        • Amman June 14, 2021 at 3:58 pm #

The knacker had a ton of kids that played in the yard through various piles of animal parts and offal. They were the healthiest kids in the village. Never got sick.

      You might be surprised, if you search very diligently for a cheap house. My little community has had lots of houses sell for very cheap over the years. However, even the best of them were, at best, rather modest. The “not-the-best” were serious fixer-uppers.

      One of my neighbors recently mentioned in our town’s community group that he would sell his house with the attached six lots for $60K. Although I did not bring this up in my response to him, he told me he paid 10K cash about five years ago. I advised him to put the place up on eBay. I think the place is probably in bad shape.

      A number of years ago, a friend of mine bought her daughter a pretty nice house here for $32.500. It needed only minor repairs. (I could go on and on about the selling prices of houses around here, but I won’t.)

      This is in a very small and rather run-down rural lake community that is about a 45-minute commute to the city.

      Places like this are rarely listed by realtors, so it takes dedication to find them. To locate them, go down to rural county courthouses and ask to see the county-owned properties. Some communities will have dozens of these. You will not use this information to purchase a county-owned property, however. You will use it to identify distressed communities. Now, preferably armed with a plat map (available online), you can drive around these communities and chat people up. You can also post on the community pages of these communities (if allowed) or nearby communities, or visit their city halls (if any), where you can talk with city employees and check bulletin boards. You can, of course, also check for real estate listings in your target communities.

      This is a time-consuming, but interesting and educational project.

        I live in Oregon. We have a condo, which is paid off. Cars paid off. No bills. And are stocked up. However, there are no houses available in town. None. Rentals are almost gone as quickly as they are advertised, sometimes before. People are flocking here from the East Coast and more from California. What I find the saddest of this all is that Oregon used to be a center right state with good governors. All the Californians were determined to destroy Oregon as they destroyed CA. Our politics have really changed for the worse. I didn’t even bother to vote in the last local election except for one ballot measure. I knew everything would pass and our taxes just go up and up and up because the new Oregonians who are former Californians want to Californiacate Oregon. Where is Tom McCall when you need him?

    Of the three problems outlined here, the faltering economy is the one that will cause the most trouble. Our economy is only alive due to the outrageous financialization that continues to prop it up. Once it can no longer work, which is when confidence in the bond market is lost, we will see unprecedented economic misery. Only then, will our dependent citizenry turn on the politicians.

        Wizard,
        I agree for the most part.

        However, your earlier comments on Nixon and removing Gold from the backing of the currency might be a bit off target. Consider that Gold and silver are very limited in availability. In a country of 330 million souls, the lack of currency would be devastating. Fiat currency was a logical choice. Believe it or not, but your, my, and most of the readership benefitted by having those dollars churning. Do you now live well? Have you lived well? Fiat currency and inflation allowed this.

        • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 12:41 pm #

          Elysianfield,

          “Cross of Gold” indeed. How’d that work out for ole William Jennings Bryan. Three trips to the well, but he never got to drink the water.

          So, basically, the argument is that the money supply must be able to expand to support the inevitable growth in the economy and that there is insufficient gold in the world to back the necessary money supply to serve the modern global economy.

          So, fiat money was the solution.

          How’s that working out, some 50 years on?

          A new Buick Skylark in 1970 cost my parents $3,000 to purchase.

          An equivalent model Buick today would cost $30,000 or more thanks to endless money printing unrestrained by the discipline imposed by a Gold Standard.

          And yet the wages of 90% of the population have remained stagnant or have declined over the past 50 years, so purchasing power is in steep decline.

          The result: Fewer newer cars being driven out of showrooms. More used cars being purchased out of necessity.

          But, hey, at least the 10% ruling class has endless piles of fiat money to expend on price inflated necessities, so it’s all good, right?

          I should mention, that there have been proposals for a new gold standard that would involve revaluations of the pegged gold price whenever productive economic activity justified expanding the number of gold certificates in circulation. No additional gold needed. Just an adjustment in the amount of gold the banks have to pay out on demand when presented with a gold certificate at the teller window.

          Would it work? No one knows. But the present system is failing badly and I’d love to try.

          Also, not just gold, which is the money of kings and for large financial transactions by businesses, but we also need to return to silver coinage. Base metal coins are simply another form of fiat currency. Silver is real money and it is the money of everyday commerce. People instinctively know this. If you do not believe me, try to find old silver coins in circulation today. Virtually impossible. Greshams Law proves it. Also, go check out mintages for American Silver Eagles prior to 2008 and mintages since 2008. The people are voting with their pocketbooks for REAL MONEY.

          • SuperDave June 14, 2021 at 5:30 pm #

            Nixon did not remove the the “gold from backing” the US currency, he removed the fixed convertibility of gold. In other words, gold was $35 US Dollars for each ounce and after Nixon’s action, it floated based on a variable cost of gold…currently, each ounce of gold in convertible to $1867.25. The US Dollars is still backed by gold, 8000 tons of the the stuff is stored in Fort Knox…(at least we are told this)…that is the gold backing of the US dollar(at a fractional reserve rate). Other currencies are the same…

            The American people were told this was due to France showing up with a big ship asking to exchange gold for cash…I think it was to adjust wages for unskilled(and semi-skilled) labor down closer to the cost of using machines/fossil fuels.

            Even today, somethings are still the same cost as they were in 1971…less labor involved in the cost, the closer the cost is to the cost in terms of gold. In my area, a nice building lot was $700-$1000 in 1971…today, that cost is $35,000 to $50,000…or 20 ounces of gold. No labor cost in land. Average home price $24,000…685 oz of 1971 Gold…today, $260,000 average house price equals139 oz of gold today…huge difference, lots of labor in the house cost. Now, some of that is probably productivity gains, but a most is the cheap, cheap, cheap labor.

            Take wages…minimum wage to be exact. In 1971, $1.35 which was about a gram of gold per hour. That means today, if we had kept up with minimum wage, it would be $67 per hour. Sure make them demanding $15 an hour seems like they are leaving some money on the table. The highest paid person in a given company might make 6 time the lowest paid person….a plant manager getting $10 an hours sounds about right for 1971 and a plant manager getting $300 an hour…or say $600,000 a year does not sound to unreasonable…bonuses and such all in. So, highly skilled folks sort of kept up, but low skill did not…and falls farther behind every time the price of gold goes up.

            Americans never understood what happened to them. Inflation has been grossly understated for 50 years now and we are all poorer for it…but we have cheap stuff…we just don’t get paid in gold no more like we did in 1970.

            “How’s that working out, some 50 years on?”

            Wizard,

            Consider for a moment what you just said…50 years.

            Fifty
            Years.

            That would be a pretty good run, so far as I am concerned. Celebrate your wealth and good fortune.

            You can only speculate on how it would have turned out without the fiat currency. It is possible that we would not have had the vast wealth and power we now hold if on a gold standard.

          EF, This 50-year run of World Reserve fiat Petro-Dollar currency did indeed allow us on this thread to spend our lives in previously unfathomable luxury and oplulance for your average Dick & Jane.

            Yep. All that fiat money printing was just a loan against the tax revenues to be collected from the incomes of people not yet born.

            Politicians LOVE giving freebies to the public. But someone has to pay.

            So just send the bill to folks a couple of generations down the road who don’t have a vote in the matter today.

            Yes, OG,

            That was then, and this is now. Considering world history and the monetary systems used, we did pretty well, and 50 years is a lifetime for many. I do not begrudge the inflation we lived with…

            Nothing is forever…no system, no empire, no hegemon. As a contemporary of our Host was wont to say…”you paid for the ticket, now take the ride…”

      The faltering economy is a problem. What I find amazing is the “woke” corporations telling half their customers to take a hike. Coke wants me to be less white. I guess that means I trash my neighborhood, have kids I don’t take care of and embark on a life of crime. No thanks. Instead, I stopped drinking Coke products. It worked so well, I stopped drinking soft drinks period. Now, I save a bunch of money, and I am sure my health is benefiting from my new habits. If it ain’t unsweet ice tea, then I drink water.

      • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 12:46 pm #

        I hear that. Every time a “woke” corporation issues edicts that essential say “I hate your guts, Mr. Customer” – I take that as my cue to quit trading with that corporation if I can possibly avoid doing so without doing greater harm to myself.

        It isn’t a foolproof system, but I have probably changed close to 50% of my purchasing behavior on this basis and now exchange far more of my income with owned businesses or corporations that have not lost their minds and decided that they are politicians instead of businessmen.

        My favorite tactic is to look up products I need on Amazon. Read the reviews. Then use DuckDuckGo to find it for purchase somewhere else that is not “woke.”

        Sometimes I have to spend a bit more for the item, but it usually is not much difference. Less than 5% in most cases. That’s a price I am willing to pay to punish those who want to punish me.

    Latest Rasmussen Poll shows 51% of the people believe cheating had a big impact on the 2020 elections.

    Question: How likely is it that cheating affected the 2020 presidential election.

    30% Democrats
    51% Unaffiliated
    74% Republicans
    Total 51%

    And we wonder why the Democrats kept the National Guard surrounding the White House for months and why they continuing fighting the Arizona audit tooth and nail.

      Indeed.

      The fact that fully 1/3 of Democrat voters concede that their party probably cheated in the last election is a stunning and historically unprecedented statistic.

      The people who perpetrated the steal should all be sent to the Federal SuperMax and the cell doors welded shut……FOREVER.

      No republican form of constitutional government utilizing democratic election processes can long endure if the faith of the electorate in the honesty and integrity of the elections is destroyed…..period.

    With about 1/2 the population “vaccine hesitant”, you’ll never see a reopening of the economy. You can not exclude 1/2 of your customers and expect business as usual.

    The entire new edifice of “Vaccine Macht Frei” and the creation of a two-tier society does nothing but harden the hearts of those that will not submit to vaccination.

    Ya know, I moved out of California into flyover land just in time to avoid the lockdowns. The authorities shut down my factory but my line of software kept me going fine throughout all of this. Fact is, I’m kinda bored so I considered doing some teaching which is something I can do given my degree in secondary education, my degree in psychology, sociology & social studies and a few other degrees and certificates that I have. I looked into the prospect of doing some teaching for a bit but the school districts demand vaccination so they will not get my services. I guess they can continue along in their marxist indoctrination without me.

    One final thing: I am a prepper and have prepared for years for a scenario where I have to hunker down for a year or two. I have the luxury of time to see whether or not people drop like flies come Fall. I have time to see where this plays out. I feel terrible for anyone that didn’t prepare and is at the mercy of vaccine Karens.

    God help you.

      I thought of stopping in a local independent bookstore this past Saturday,

      Incredibly, they had a sign on the door, that since they could not ascertain the vaccination status of customers, everyone would need to wear a mask.

      The hell with them, you’d think people who run a bookstore would be well read.

      I noticed another unique business in the same area didn’t make it through the shutdowns.

      This is the third business I’ve learned of that has decided to be Gestapo on their own customers, voluntarily.

        There is a country bar in the city here that has refused entry to those who aren’t vaxed or have a negative PCR diagnosis within the past 72 hours.

        I hope they go out of business due to lost revenue or are sued out of existence because they chose to accept liability on this issue.

            There are a half-dozen businesses around me I will never set foot in again. I liked these places and chatted with the ever-changing workers there for years. These places knew and recognized me. It’s not that they required a mask, most other places did. It’s how they went about it. Too brayingly stupid to listen to reason, too demanding, too wilfully ignorant, too afraid, too brainwashed, too badly managed. Closet Nazis all of them.

      Until “those people” are fully suppressed, there will be no peace and return to normalcy in this country. I’m convinced of that.

      All prudent people who value their lives, liberty, property, and independence are taking appropriate steps now to maintain these things.

      I am also pleased to see Republicans showing some signs of becoming sentient beings and working at the state level to suppress the Antifa/BLM thugs by outlawing their street thug tactics and the “Wokester” propaganda being taught in the schools.

      The backlash is building folks. The 2022 mid-term elections will be the litmus test.

      It will either be the end of the beginning and 2020 will go down in history as the high water mark of the Wokesters, or it will be our Waterloo, and the Leftist March towards totalitarian governance of this country will continue, in which case, there almost certainly will be blood in the streets at some point.

          Sadly, I must agree. Republicans seem to be making headway in a number of states trying to change the election laws to address the frauds perpetrated in the 2020 contest.

    As long as schools are kept closed, and they were closed for no good reason, parents cannot return to the jobs they previously performed while their children were in school.

    There is an effort to keep kids out of the classroom, and non-scientists are leading it.

    I was in the supermarket just the other day, and there were not enough people working the registers, and one of the managers said that they had workers quitting.

    You can’t quit your job to go on unemployment.

    What appears to be happening in the supermarkets, is that they are cutting worker’s hours,

    If you don’t get enough hours, you have to find something else to do.

    There are a lot of factors going into the labor shortage, and I’m sure some of the unemployed don’t want to take a job, but it is much more than people being too lazy to work.

    What did anybody think was going to happen, when they forcibly separated Americans from their jobs, and then paid them more than the unlucky ones who had to keep working in face rags?

    Speaking of unlucky workers, it looks like the businesses around here installed way more hot and stuffy plastic barricades at the same time the CDC decided it was unnecessary after all.

    Does anyone still not know that this was never about a virus, it was always about the plan to destroy and Build Back Better?

            Without exception, all of them know I went out and bought 3 new suits so I wouldn’t have to wear the same one to all the funerals that I’m going to have to attend.

            I’m also the guy that saw what was coming and bought a house sight unseen so as to be out of California. I hired a real estate agent the very day after I saw the REPO market freeze up like it did in ’08. I didn’t know exactly what was coming but I knew the false flags were gonna come fast given that the financial system had just collapsed.

            I warned family, friends and associates that the time to run to the hills was now and that a crisis was coming. Event 201 took place the very next month.

            I landed in flyover land and set up shop two weeks before the lockdowns began. When those were announced, I told everyone that it wouldn’t be two weeks but forever. I told anyone that would listen that these forever shutdowns would eventually lead to a collapse of our just-in-time way of doing business. I told them that free money would lead to inflation.

            Everyone stopped laughing at me when the lockdowns didn’t stop, when the shortages and inflation came, when the election was stolen, when the rioting, looting and arson came.

            Deep in their hearts they know that the guy that got it right went out and bought a new suit to wear at their funeral.

    kreme donuts for vaccinated americans.
    then there were free beers.
    now, more and more states are rolling out $1 million dollar cash lotteries as incentives for americans to get vaccinated.

    ohio was the first to roll out its so-called “vax-a-million” campaign on may 13, which offered vaccinated adults a chance at one of five jackpots each totaling $1 million if they received at least their first dose. according to the state’s department of health, the incentive was enough to quickly spark a 28% spike in vaccinations. [death lottery]

    other states across the country have been quick to adopt ohio’s lottery incentive and the other incentive that followed for non-adults: ohioans aged 12 to 17 who received at least one dose of the covid-19 vaccine were also eligible to win one of five four-year full-ride scholarships at any ohio state college or university.[if they live]

    similarly, new york gov. andrew cuomo [having killed 1000s of old and made baby murder legal]
    announced this week that any state resident between 12 and 17 years old who gets a first dose of the pfizer-biontech vaccine starting on may 27 would be entered into a raffle to win a full scholarship to a new york public university.

      The vaccine lottery Malthuss describes is illegal. For the function of government is to collect taxes and provide government services to the people.

      Funny…..the government didn’t go to such lengths to eradicate SMALLPOX from the globe half a century ago.

      Are we all supposed to believe that COVID-19 is a threat greater than smallpox was?

      Seriously, really?

      S – C – A – M

      That is all it can be.

      So the question is this: What is the end game of the elites? Are they simply bumbling boobs who are blindly creating a massive public health disaster simply as an after-effect of their TDS last year? Or, alternately, should we all be donning our tinfoil hats and wondering WTF this pandemic is REALLY about? Did the Leftist elites worldwide engineer this virus so that they could dose 90% of the world with a lethal vaccine that will slowly depopulate the planet and effect THE GREAT RESET?

      One does wonder about such things, and I’m fairly allergic to most forms of conspiracy-minded thinking. But this really stinks to high heaven.

        Well of course. How else is the population going to be reduced? Voluntarily? People stop having as many kids when they become prosperous. There isn’t enough prosperity left to cover Africa’s exploding population. Or even Latin America, etc.

        Once we defeat them, it will be our problem again. My solution: Fortress America. Seal the borders and let the rest of the World die. You may prefer to let the global population explode until almost everyone dies. That’s called Christian compassion.

        COVID-19 is a threat greater than smallpox was? Within the last few weeks the FDA gave its full approval to a new drug to treat smallpox (just in case it ever escapes from a government lab into the general population). This was not an EUA but a full approval. None of the currently available vaccines has yet been given full approval. Remdesivir has been given full approval for treatment of COVID-19 but only with many qualifications. It doesn’t seem to work all that well. All other treatments for COVID are EUA types.
        I will leave the source citation research up to readers here.

        • tresho June 14, 2021 at 3:49 pm #

      As JHK wrote: “Count me as “vaccine fuggeddabowdit” on this one.”

      Have you looked at all at the SinoVac vaccine? That seems to be less “effective,” but also a lot less deadly. Being made with actual killed viruses makes it less suspect in my mind.

      • Yohannon June 14, 2021 at 12:18 pm #

        Is that their domestic one or the one they’re exporting? I assume the latter is the same deadly mRNA type as the rest of them.

      • Not_GeorgeT June 14, 2021 at 1:38 pm #

        “This cannot be good news for the millions who gave their consent to be vaccinated.”

        I do wonder where informed consent fits into the scheme. I suspect the full disclosure it requires rarely appears, with a lot of dancing around the issue, mental gymnastics, and a constant propaganda barrage being the staples of the plan.

        “Sign here, we’ll get you through in no time” would be a good scenario.

        The not-so-good news is percolating.

        • Justin June 16, 2021 at 4:48 pm #

          Informed consent is required for any vaccine, or at least it used to be before this scam. Especially for an EUA, which is the same as a clinical trial. In that case, test subjects are guinea pigs, so they need to be fully informed, before consenting to the trial.

          Yes, full disclosure almost never appears, or no one would volunteer. The waivers they sign are pretty air tight legally.

      • Bill7 June 16, 2021 at 11:06 pm #

        If the “vaccine” does not protect one from getting infected; and does not keep one from passing OMG! CoBid! on to others; and is experimental, with its long-term effects impossible to know except
        over time; why accept The Injection?

          Not to sound preachy, but this seems appropriate to the discussion.

          Rev. 13:16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has [g]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

          18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666….

          Rev.14:9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

    I notice that there was no pandemic at the G7, except for when they did the obligatory photo op sanding way far apart from each other, and did that asinine elbow thing.

    There was a pandemic for the hired help, of course, who had to walk around outdoors in slave masks.

    Boris has decided it is too soon to quit milking the pandemia, the British will not be set free this month, they haven’t finished destroying Western civilization yet, and the climate emergency is not quite ready to take the place of the COVID emergency.

    Trudeau said that Heiress will be president by 2022. They all know that we have a senile dummy where a president used to be.

    • ThorsHammer June 14, 2021 at 12:58 pm #

      Beryl,

      I strongly favor a graduated standard of mask usage based upon the position of power of the individual. The US President is officially the most important individual at the head of the most powerful country in the world, so he should be protected at all times by wearing twelve masks. On the other hand Trudeau is the leader of a country so full of wimps that they gleefully accept an even more Woke culture and more totalitarian control than the US, and they don’t have an army that could threaten anyone, so six masks should be enough for Trudeau.

      • Yohannon June 14, 2021 at 3:17 pm #

    • Justin June 16, 2021 at 5:10 pm #

      Yes, I noticed that absence of the pandemic at G7 too, so I wonder how many or few others also noticed that?
      I also notice that the 4 British commonwealth countries are all in lock step together, taking their marching orders from the same place.
      So much for Canada, Australia and NZ thinking they were independent sovereign countries.

      As for their climate emergency backup plan, it seems that will fail even worse than it already has.

      Now Trudope might be right about the Heiress being president by 2022.
      Lots of people seem to be betting on that too.

    Great post. Glad to see that JHK has reached the cruising altitude of the rest of the Covid questioners, many of whom smelled a rat from the start. And though JHK long stated he was allergic to conspiracy theories, the truth is it’s all upside-down now–yesterday’s “rational” people are today’s tinfoil hatters, the “coincidence theorists” who refuse to connect the boulder-sized dots.

    As for me, I’m bracing for the fall. Lots of smart folks with a finger to the wind are saying that vax adverse events next flu season will be blamed on the spooky “variants” and the hammer will come down on the vax “hesitant” (more like vax “decisive” at this point). But of course there’s a gazillion variants already, like snowflakes, which makes chasing them around with more vaccines a fool’s errand when a few doses of Ivermectin would handle them all.

      Right Jeff – “case” numbers were fluffed on the way up in order to herd the sheep into “vaccines”.

            The proof is yours to provide. The HUGE story in the press is because of people like you. Without you his heart attack would just be a heart attack story. Like all the other stories of players who had heart attacks on the pitch. But social media has been doing its social media thing. So you get a *story*.

I’m sure that’ll go well out in the boonies in places like the hills of West Virginia (Shotgun City, here we come!), the swamps of Louisiana (Alligator gotta eat!), and the Rocky Mountains of the Western States (Winchester, anyone?)

      Americans will cooperate with a lot of foolish shit from the politicians: face diapers, business shutdowns, social distancing nonsense, elbow bumps, plexiglass barriers Willy-billy everywhere…….

      ……but armed federal agents coming to your door with guns to force you to let them inject a potentially harmful substance into your body…..

      ….oh my Good Lord…..that surely AIN’T gonna end well for the enforcers. This country is many things, but it is not France, Sweden, or New Zealand.

      A large and substantial portion of the American population will never stand for it. If they think Waco and Ruby Ridge were “bad optics,” then just TRY forcing Americans to take the jab.

    The thing that seems forgotten is that you are supposed to weigh the risk from a vaccine against the risk from the disease it prevents, and children and young adults just do not have that risk from the Wuhan flu.

    Yet they are being enticed and coerced to take part in a vaccine trial without informed consent.

    19-year-old Simone Scott was excited to get her second dose of

  15. SW June 14, 2021 at 10:43 am #

    One of the reasons a certain number of health care workers won’t take the vaccine is b/c they know:

    #1 — there’s no way to know long term effects
    #2 — it has NOT been proven to be effective
    #3 — they know what the pharmaceutical industry is capable of when it comes to profit over safety
    #4 — approval should not be given to any drug at “warp speed”

    People will be out of a job as was proven in Houston when a number (not sure how many) were fired from Houston Methodist Hospital. So it looks like the plan is the classic carrot vs stick arrangement. Get a lottery ticket, donut, free cup of coffee OR lose your job, get no unemployment while you’re looking for another and every place you apply to, you have to prove you’ve been vaccinated.

    Yet, Big Lie Tony is still on TV telling the nation “it’s unclear whether children can return to school in the fall.” And this even though the data is in that children have a zero chance of dying from this low-lethality virus.

      I’m not sure how effective, over the long-term, it will be to terminate people from their employments for not taking the jab. People are going to sue and some are going to win. Maybe not in Texas, (an “employment at will” state), but perhaps elsewhere.

      Throwing people out of work in this economy as a mode of coercion over killer vaccines cannot possibly work out to be a popular public policy over the long term.

      Once 2021 is over and people start focusing on the 2022 Congressional and local elections I expect that the “push” for getting jabbed will vanish as politicians fear behaving in this dictatorial manner too close to an election.

        It doesn’t need to come down to termination in the immediate future. It could take the form of ostracization and other stress-inducing punishments for not being submissive.

        For some being forced to line up for injection with the experimental biologic agent, the choice is either get jabbed or face severe daily consequences at the workplace.

        This cascade of threatened adversity impacting one’s ability to provide basic needs for one’s family enters the realm of a Cornelian dilemma.

          With over half of the US working population living paycheck to paycheck, there’s already plenty of leverage to force the reluctant to be vaccinated. I know it doesn’t make sense to fire experienced workers but even in hospitals, it’s not as hard as you think to get replacements.

          One thing that wasn’t reported during the hysteria days of Covid is that nurses were being laid off. All the b.s. on TV about allowing student nurses to go to work immediately was nonsense. A friend who works in pre-op in a major hospital in Fort Worth was cut along with 80% of the OR staff b/c only necessary, life threatening surgery was to be performed. With minimal compensation too.

    My guess, extrapolating from the past five years or so, is that the “Joe Biden” administration and Corporate Media (including Facebook, Twitter, etc.) will successfully keep a lid on both the vote recount and the Covid scam, but that it will ultimately succumb to the moribund economy.

    In that event, Plan A will be to declare that Senile Old Joe is no longer able to function, even ceremonially, in the Oval Office and declare Unelectable Kamala as our new president. The joyous, woke celebration of that fabulous event will distract the public and buy the Dems another year or so.

    When it becomes clear that things are even worse with the odious Harris in our faces every news cycle, Plan B will call for our militarized local police forces to impose de facto martial law, marketed under the brand of some slick euphemism – likely with the pretext that it’s for our own good, to protect us from another surge of the pandemic, whether real or fabricated.

    We have already been trained to stay at home and limit our activity, so martial law won’t seem that shockingly different.

    I can’t wait to find out what Plan C is, when that unravels.

    • Beryl of Oyl June 14, 2021 at 11:04 am #

      I think that with Kamala, there is always the possibility that it will suddenly be discovered that, as an anchor baby, she is ineligible to be president after all.

      Then they can bring in whomever they want, and invent some new laws as to why that’s okay.

      @Zoltar — I agree the issue of the economy is going to consume our attention b/c it’s real to people who have to grocery shop, get their car fixed and keep the lights on. But the escalating prices will be blamed on supply lines disrupted by malware and “foreign actors.” The Fed printing too much money will not be blamed.

      Plan B is in the works, if you hadn’t noticed, with the FBI (according to NBC nightly news) declaring “American extremists” being our most dangerous enemy and rooting them out is their top priority.

      Remember when Boston went into complete lockdown to find one teenage wounded boy? You’re on the right track about the local, militarized police being given sweeping powers.

      • Zoltar June 14, 2021 at 11:24 pm #

        SW I agree about Boston. Whatever the ultimate explanation for the operatives with matching backpacks and caps, the whole deal seemed like a dry run for martial law and Bostonians loved it!

          There are a lot of missing pieces to the puzzle.

          It’s like the 3rd rail on a subway system.

          One piece is the federal agency doing a constant re-run of 2 individuals turning a corner and starting down a street. The plea was for help from anyone to identify said individuals.

          The part about the Russians having already identified them and handed over a load of info along with warnings two years prior, all provided to the same federal agency, seems to have gone down the memory hole along with the rabbit.

          How is Joe doing an heroic job recovering from Covid? The vaccines that he’s constantly flogging were already developed and the states had set up their distribution network so no “heroic effort” on his part was necessary.

            It may be post-face lift cognitive decline, but the consensus seems to be more like dementia or alzheimer to most? Or maybe he just lost his mind somewhere with his keys, and hasn’t found it yet?

            Whatever the cause is, it must be painfully embarrassing for everyone around him. I don’t even watch him try to talk any more. It used to be funny, but not any more.

      You can tell she is in “I can’t believe you just asked me that?” mode.

      Her expectation is to only be pitched SOFTBALLS by the obligingly leftist press, so when they occasionally pretend to be real journalists, she is just flabbergasted and completely unprepared.

    Much as I wish JHK was right about the unraveling, I think it unlikely. Fauci is toast, but Biden can plausibly claim that he is an innocent bystander because the damage Fauci caused occurred mostly on Trump’s watch.

    Getting rid of a president is unlikely to happen without the consent of his own party and bloodthirsty media pushing it. Neither of those circumstances are likely.

    Finally, as par4 noted, anything that the military might do to change things is likely to end badly. I thinl that our only realistic shot is to hold our noses and elect enough Republicans to take the house and senate and then hope that they start investigations that reveal the theft of the the previous election for all to see. This will be a slow, grinding process pushing into gale force winds from the federal bureaucracy and the corporate media. If it fails, we are toast. Leftists control the media, the universities, the federal bureaucracy, some large population important states and will soon have woke public school systems.

        No way to home school? Public school is a terrible, soul-killing thing to do to a child. People shouldn’t be introduced to hopeless despair so young. It doesn’t have to be done for seven hours a day, like in-person classroom schooling. The little ones only need an hour or so a day, and time increases as they get older. If one of you can be home, you might want to look into that.

      A good summation. Though JHK identifies accurately the chicanery, deceptions, outright lies and stench that is our current national government, his predictive record is slightly less successful than the proverbial stopped clock.

      Sadly, his predictions are based on what SHOULD happen as opposed to what WILL happen. Systemic power attained by thievery can last longer than we. Maybe someday…

      An addendum:

      My 20 year old grandson applied for a summer job at a fast food chain. He was asked only two questions, sight unseen:

      Are you over 16? When can you start?

      • tresho June 14, 2021 at 3:37 pm #

        Last week I was stunned at a local fast food place. A middle aged overweight woman was taking orders at the counter. She was using a walker to move around there. The rest of the help was much younger and did all the running around to make up the food, bag it, and put it on the counter. That having been said, the counter lady was proficient at dealing with customers, taking their orders, and making change. She was ending her shift. She punched out of the register, and was helped out the door so she could catch a bus home.

      Dream on. When are people going to figure out that the republican party is no better than the democrats, and a complacent, go along to get along public will take anything the sick bastards dish out, right up the ass. As we speak the military is being purged of Right thinking individuals and for the most part soldiers are brainwashed into patriotic bullshit in the first place. The military and gestapo police will have no problem whipping the peons into shape. There will be some who refuse to accept the status quo. I just hope there are enough to make a real difference and a big change.

      • Uncle Bob June 17, 2021 at 6:08 am #

        The leftist purge began under Bubba, paused under Dubya, then resume under The One. Which is why so many flag officers came out against Trump, which led a lot of mental lightweights to think, Oh, these generals hate Trump and think he’s dangerous. They’re professionals, while he’s disruptive, so they MUST be right. Now, under Sleepy Joe and an angry, woke, white-hating black SecDef, the purge has been renewed with extra vigor. At some point, the military that’s been worshipped by patriotic Americans will be loosed against them to finish off the communist revolution here.

    Excellent piece today.

    And just when we thought we may be able to count the lies, Greenwald reminds us of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub being seized and spun by Obama and Clinton Inc. as a hate crime against LGBT’s.

    Because the truth that it was in response to Obama’s incessant killing of “innocents” in the ME was not politically conducive for the DNC in the final sprint of the 2016 election.

    America, and it’s treatment of homosexuals brought this act.

    I’ve been on this Long Emergency Ride with you for over 20 years now after I saw your comment on a Energy Blog in 1998. We sure didn’t see fracking coming into play. your a year longer in the tooth than me but we both read back then Ehrlich’s Population Bomb that didn’t consider Norman Borlaug’s Dwarf Wheat coming into fruition. We both saw the Banking crisis coming in 2008 and didn’t think they would bail out the banks and yet not put restrictions or jail time for the culprits. Think they would of reinstalled the Glass-Steagall Act. We need sanity at this time to get anything on track and the utopians better wise up and find their rush to turn everything green and pollution free is nuts. Our world needs carbon and maybe we could do with less people. Immigration needs a time out as does the current legislation needs to sit on it’s hands till the 3 things you list are taken care of. We need to get mass transportation up like or R&R system even if it only runs 80mph and get things more local in the agriculture system and for God’s Sake boycott China and have the world isolate them till the CCP is overthrown. In the mean time we have work to weed the corrupt out of our government and clean up the educational system for starters. America needs to get tough and one starting point close the boarders and execute drug dealers.

        I don’t know why the immigration laws, which so many people follow to the letter, are optional for anyone.

        I see so many young people in traffic court because they didn’t follow some regulation on paper, often because they could not afford to.

        Why not give them the free pass that we give to foreigners.

        Kamala just come out and states that she wants to help Guatemalans.

        She does not get paid to work for a foreign country.

        I would like to see the ones who had every opportunity to become legal in this country, but didn’t bother, get kicked out too.

        I’m referring to those who married an American citizen, and then we are supposed to feel sorry for them because they never obtained legal status.

        Again, when American get to pick and choose what laws we feel like following, then we can talk about foreigners.

    An unusually positive perspective emanating from MangoLand:

    Methinks the general public, being chronically mentally incapacitated as we tend to be (when in a group), is beginning to officially tire of the covid crap. It’s old news. They played along, They were scared for a few weeks, then they pretended to be scared the rest of time to fit in…they had fun playing real-life blanket fort for a year and ordering in Chipotle daily while telling the whole world how woke they were.

    But now it’s boring to even them. So 2020. Jeezus, get with it, right?

    Thank God for the collective short attention span of the Western world. Odd to say that, considering that is exactly what usually causes most of the world’s problems. Now that amalgamated idiocy may just save us all.

    This is not something they can continue to focus on…the politicians can flail about and try to do whatever they’re being told to do, but people are going to be very done with this, very soon.

    Those who were never on board can (perhaps?) start to breathe a sigh of relief. When they try to ban Amazon and Walmart deliveries to unvaxxed homes this fall, and when nearly half of our nation’s kids are to be banned from entering their schools, enough will tell TPTB to fuck right off, and this will be swept into the bin of the Olden Days, with a large swath of jagoffs privately realizing they were on the wrong side of history…but who cares, that was 2020.

    Unless, of course, TPTB have a better covid in a vial, ready to change things back to their favor. Ugh. Hey – it started out as a positive post…

    • Wizard of the Saddle June 14, 2021 at 11:55 am #

      Yes, I agree Mango. COVID fatigue is real and it’s spreading far faster now than this hyped virus ever did.

      The short attention spans of the sheeple may indeed prove to be our salvation from the artificial “Plague without End.”

      They won’t. Ever.

      So no: Covid is very far from being over. It’s a religion to many. The Elite? It’s their debit and our credit. And they are going to call in their loan.

          What on earth are you talking about this time? I said no such thing.

          If JHK claims that Christopher Sign didn’t commit suicide but was murdered by the Clintons, then I disagree with that, and would say so. But JHK has not said that, to my knowledge.

          And I would disagree with it on the same grounds that make me allergic to conspiracy theories in general. It is so easy to say something (or mindlessly reproduce nutfudge tweets like some do), but rather harder to back it up with some evidence.

          Of course for the really hardcore, the absolute lack of evidence is proof of how the conspiracy is so dastardly. I think Hair-Dye or Kraken Lady tried this argument in a court – with no success.

    “ …this three-hour-plus roundtable discussion on Bret Weinstein’s Dark Horse YouTube podcast (if it hasn’t been taken down by the time you read this, because to-date YouTube suppresses all mention of Ivermectin, etc.). You will learn in this detailed discussion that the three vaccines being used have produced more deaths and “adverse events” in aggregate than all the other vaccines medicine has developed over the past thirty years. Let that sink in. You will also hear Dr. Malone describe the spike protein, which is the chief mechanism activated by the vaccines, as a “toxic” agent.”

All the websites I’ve found like this appear really scammy; the srt that want to have chats with you on the phone and send out tons of emails.. I actually did order on one and then thought better of it and canceled; now I get to see what they do with my credit card info! I’d love to have some on hand, just in case……

        Just go to you local feed store. The signs they put up saying it’s only for animals are lies. I’ll post something later that explains everything. You can get a tube for less than ten dollars (to eat). The other kind you inject into a drink. That’s more expensive, but you get more. You get a syringe to do the injecting.

        A third type is “pour on” for the coats of animals. This is not to be ingested or used outwardly since we don’t have coats.

        Our bodies are animal. Our minds are human. Our souls are divine. Animals might have a divine soul too, but they haven’t developed their minds yet in order to access it.

        But, I really wanted to get the IVM. I reactivated my PP account, and ordered May 30. I received a confirmation; there was a single charge to my account, and I received a tracking notice.

    Just an observation. New homes are not being built at near the rate of pre 2008. The builders are all building apartments for generations that cannot afford single family houses. The demand is still slowly increasing for houses as young adults have kids and become middle aged. The houses are not there, Bailey Park is fading away, demand is outstripping supply. Prices will fall only when demand drops, or supply increases. Until then, buyers beware.

        Mission Valley in San Diego river valley is putting up a crazy amounts of high rise apartments in an area that is already a huge traffic problem.
        I saw a number around 50,000 apartments in the next year or two.
        Best part no new roads or even widening existing ones.
        The nexus point is where I-8, I-163 AND I-805 ll intersect.
        Another 5,000 are going in along I-163 NEAR bALBOA blvd.

    I think of Gorby and how he proactively dismantled the USSR once he figured out he was in a metaphorical cul de sac with no way out. That took some balls, and that makes him the greatest leader of my lifetime. Reagan was right up there with him. Thatcher, too. We’re a long way from that now. juxtapose that G7 (or is it 9) photo op against those titans. Until we get rid of these clowns that presume to lead us, we’re pretty much phucked.

    Can we add another lie?

    The January 6th so-called insurrection.

    A friend sent me a link to some liberal’s screed about it (they are desperate to keep the narrative alive), even though it’s dead in the water, seemingly, despite so many being held as political prisoners in solitary confinement. The piece started out so unbelievably propagandized and over-the-top ridiculous I couldn’t believe it.

    These idiots believe (and the article claimed) that “thousands” of insurrectionists descended on the capitol, killing 5.

    LMAO! You cannot get farther from reality than that. The one murder was done by the capitol police, and the other 4 died of things which had nothing to do with the march, or the incident.

    Excellent offering today, James.

    I am guessing that the Troll Triumvirate will not find it pleasing, as you’ve mentioned many theories and conclusions there that largely mirror those of some of us who post comments, and when we do, we are called tinfoilers and conspiracy theorists and ‘nutfudge’.

    I wonder if Agent Po will have the guts to call you one of those and risk being booted? We shall see.

    • Tekapo June 14, 2021 at 3:28 pm #

      … will not find it pleasing, as you’ve mentioned many theories and conclusions there that largely mirror those of some of us who post comments, and when we do, we are called tinfoilers and conspiracy theorists and ‘nutfudge’.

      This is completely incorrect – and I suspect deliberately so. What I call tinfoil is the never-ending baseless assertions from you lot that everything that occurs is part of a Grand Plan by the dark forces of totalitarian globalism (usually with a big side salad of Anti-Semitism), or if not them the the CCP in collusion with the Deep State.

      That’s the fringe nutfudge factor … I don’t buy any of the New World Order jive. The clusterfuckery is pretty much self-inflicted – there are no grand plans unfolding. (And I’m not even talking about all that God-Satan porridge, and endless prognostications about The End Times).

      As to JHK’s essay, I thought it was a great read, and I enjoyed it being longer.

      However I disagree straight up with the opener “Here is why the “Joe Biden” regime only has a few months to live” – mostly because (a) there are very few Constitutional ways to remove a Prez once they have the Oval Office. and (b) I don’t agree with all three of the Big Lies – or at least I don’t agree that the Biden-Dems own all the grief.

      I do have serious concerns that Joe Biden is looking doddery, but there again, he didn’t ruin the G7 like the former guy was wont to do. I have no idea how much Barack Obama is in the mix still.

      I am also interested to see that JHK has progressed from agnostic to wait-and-see to “vaccine fuggeddabowdit” over a few months. I confess I am rather similar at this stage. But again, strictly on medical grounds – not anti-vax ones, or through some nutfudge belief that it’s a deliberate de-population play.

      Short of calling a halt in vaccination at this Stage, I don’t know what President Biden does in respect of the whole Covid-19 – and nor why he has to own any of the political fallout. The failures of public health admin mostly happened under Trump, and very much because of his dysfunctional administration, and their panic in an election year.

      Credibility was so low that the day that Trump mentioned Hydroxychloroquine, its use was doomed … Trump was so toxic that anything he said was not able to be discussed or agreed with in polite society. It didn’t help that neither the CDC nor the Task Force (Pence-Fauci-Birx) endorsed the HCQ claims.

      Dr Fauci is now being demonised – perhaps rightly – but it seems to me he is the fall guy, and the real cause of so many deaths was Donald Trump, because he politicised and weaponised a public health crisis.

      He wouldn’t even put a fucking mask on because his ego and vanity wouldn’t allow it.

      The real cause of so many world-wide deaths might well have been US funding of coronavirus research kin a lab it didn’t control. Whether the Repubs or the Dems should own that is up for debate – perhaps both, or perhaps neither – maybe it is pure Deep State / Pentagon insanity.

      This post is already long enough – but on Lie No2, I think the Arizona Exercise will be a fizzer.

      It’s just not credible to me that in the six swing states no Republicans with a say in the matter came forward with credible evidence of fraud if it existed. And all those Republican states certified the votes.

      Sending in the Beagle Boys (Florida) Inc to do a number, checking for paw-prints and soy-sauce stains on the ballots … it’s going to be virtually impossible for anyone but QAnon to take the findings seriously, if they aren’t cross-checked by someone else. But I agree the Feds should stay away at this stage.

      Lie No3 … the economy has (as JHK states) has been a very fragile flower since 2008, and let’s hope the Covid-19 disaster isn’t doing serious or terminal damage. The summer is critical indeed – happy motoring!

      I don’t believe President Biden will be out by September, and nor will the former guy be back in. Anyway he has some legal and financial headwinds that aren’t going away. I don’t believe either Biden or Trump will be party nominees in September 2024 either.

      New blood please – people under 55 whom I have never heard of from states I’ve never been to.

However, Yachts, great incomes and crisp Chardonnay are not the reality for most Americans That you lived well has insulated you from the issues you, unfortunately expound upon. You have no relatable wisdom, and yet you will stand as an arbiter of race relations, and our opinions thereof.

          So you are saying that anything Trump supported, the self-respecting Anti-Trumpers were honor bound to oppose. The science doesn’t matter, the treatment’s effectiveness doesn’t matter. If Trump endorses it, your “polite society” crowd must oppose it.

          So Trump deprived people of Hydroxychloroquine treatment by endorsing it, thus forcing your crowd to forbid its use. Once again it’s all Trump’s fault.

          It’s amazing to behold how your great rational mind works.

            It’s not just me saying it – quite a lot of commentators have stated the obvious: Trump told so many lies (I think WaPo chalked up 30,000 or so) that everything he said about the pandemic was dismissed as either untrue, something he’d seen on a quack fringe site, or just a political ploy.

            And as I said, CDC and Dr Fauci didn’t back him … he was just out there sounding like a salesman.

            So Trump deprived people of Hydroxychloroquine treatment by endorsing it, thus forcing your crowd to forbid its use. Once again it’s all Trump’s fault.

            That’s very succinctly put. All the anti-Trump media spent a year giving the guy no credit points on the pandemic. Mind you, he didn’t earn that many.

            Somebody came up to him and said, “We’ve been doing coronavirus vaccine research for 20 years, and where 80% there. Throw 100 million bucks at Big Pharma, and you’ll have a vaccine before the election. Call it something snappy – how about Operation Warp Speed?”.

            But yes, Trump lied, especially about the economy being so sound and strong. I hope it doesn’t shock you too much the day you learn politicians in general lie a lot. LOL Oh yes, even left-wingers.

            The fact that thousands died needlessly because your ideologically driven hate crowd rejected an effective treatment for childish reasons doesn’t seem to sink into your great rational brain at all.

            And let’s not get ahead of ourselves … there are indications that HCQ might be effective as early treatment – there isn’t yet solid proof.

          You should be commended on living well. However, Yachts, great incomes and crisp Chardonnay are not the reality for most Americans That you lived well has insulated you from the issues you, unfortunately expound upon.

          I should explain that the “yacht” is a 40yo steely that cost $22K – it’s nothing flash, but fun to potter around in. Playing golf and sipping wine does not maketh you ruling class – millions of people do it, and millions of others could if they so desired.

          I come from very working-class roots I can assure you. But I am white, male, now past middle age, and modestly comfortable. I think that fits the cohort here pretty much – I’m not excluding the women poster of course.

            A smallish BMW marine engine – yes diesel … it’s complicated and has given me plenty trouble in the past.

            Sorry – no sleek teak interiors – very basic indeed – lots of painted metal, and an abundance of marine carpet everywhere. A good three-way fridge-freezer though.

    Suppose we consider anti-vaxxers heroes? The self selected control group. I’m willing to entertain the suggestion it’s SHOWTIME for Collapse Part I but I’d like to report that conditions in my town are booming. Masks mostly off, houses selling over ask, too much traffic, let’s call it almost “normal”.

    Our town is 38% vaxxed and tapering down. Alabama as a whole is recalcitrant. 49th out of 50 at 30% fully vaxxed. The 65+ crowd has taken the shot at 75%. So why don’t we compare in the next 3-6 months, how the vaxxed do against the hesitant? My family of five has been “medically altered” by genetic interventions. Most of my neighbors and friends are inoculated. I know what ADE is and I completely agree that our leaders are liars. I did not think they wanted to kill me since I was doing useful work to earn make believe money. I tend to be contrarian but I cannot touch the posters on this site.

    I am enjoying my pretend protection from the over hyped Covid. I have a ticket to travel internationally in August and am looking forward to pushing back a little against requirements I don’t think are necessary. I am not a TSA fan. It’s a demeaning job checking underwear for plastic explosives…One does what one must. I’ll see whether it is possible to fly without proving ones’ vaccine status.

    I have had several patients with Covid not all have died. Just saw a patient who missed in January due to Covid. Was told he was on Ventilator and not doing well. We were out to eat on the downtown square last weekend and there he was–10 years older looking but alive. I’d rather not go from being 68 to looking 80. My son’s roommate is long Covid. That’s a bitch for a 24 yr. old.

    So I do not want to persuade anyone of anything and will let you know if my cohort becomes suspiciously unhealthy.

    James Howard; Perfect reading of the current “tea leaves”. The escape of this man made mutant will collapse ALL countries. China may seem to be besting all others, but no country can survive the coming collapse of the world economic system. On the homey front, count from blue force central star city is 45. Baltimore highlights white power with the police descending on Fells Point to protect upper class businesses. No mention of extending to anywhere else. Atlanta murders up double digits, while arrests down over 40%. Seems >200 officers gone makes a difference. Idiot dems arranged trump’s ouster with impeccable timing. All current AND future disasters fall on bidet and the incomparable knees-up, who just assured bidet’s survival for the foreseeable future.
    5cent chucker; tracking exactly if one includes medical items. Azitro, ivermectin, hydroxy, all from India (included at no cost – generic viagra!). Hmmmm, you think as I do for the welcoming of uninvited, incoming targets.
    Oswe: Campbell, pittsylvania and Halifax Va counties have affordable (under $100,000 with land) real estate. One would need to be somewhat self contained financially as job opportunities do not abound.
    Silver eagles @ $48 and up! Paper at $28. Similar for AU. All the way to the “bank” (traded 1/2 oz for 110lb grass fed beef recently). Time to truly assess preparations, vehicle packs, ingress – egress and neighbors. To be safe, be violent as swiftly as possible when needed.

    Jim, with your permission, I’d like to add another pervasive lie to the list, the mendacious ‘Systemic Racism’ grift the Dem Jacobins have been flogging for over a year now, ever since convicted felon George Floyd bought it in Minneapolis.

    Biden in a speech to Air Force personnel last week: “Our biggest international threat is not Russia or China, but climate change.”

    Biden in a speech a few weeks ago: “White Supremacists pose the greatest domestic danger to the homeland.”

    I doubt if Biden actually believes this sh#t. It’s hard to tell what he believes, or if he believes anything at all.

    Another brilliant expose by the always on fire Mr. K! Looks like the party’s just getting started in time for red hot late summer run. After Vlad the Impaler (no relation to our very own) gets through with Uncle Joe at this weeks “summit” festivities, perhaps he’ll be heavily medicated and confined to a padded room deep in the bowels of the White House until the flack blows over and his assorted and sundry masters of the universe flunkies can figure out what to do next.

    The options appear to be limited and extremely grim. At this point, what can they do but double down, stomp their feet, and scream hysterically that everything’s just fine while their hundred’s of million vaxxer zombies slowly begin to morph into whatever GMO abominations they’re destined to become? Will alien babies come screaming out of their chests as their heads explode into gelatinous masses of globulous green goo? We’re all about to find out.

    Won’t that be the ultimate plot twist? Even before the money supply blows up and all the ticky tack houses in suburbia revert to their true value of roughly zero, the Screaming Meany Vaxxers get their just desserts for being so incredibly fucking stupid. Yes, we need to isolate these dumb bastards and figure out how we’re going to safely eliminate them from the gene pool before they cause any more harm. LOCK ‘EM UP!

      Later, in response to a question about whether Facebook should be deleted, Waters said, “How did this little pr**k, who started off going, ‘She’s pretty, we’ll give her a four out of five. She’s ugly, we’ll give her a one’… How the f**k did he get any power in anything?”

      “And yet here he is, one of the most powerful idiots in the world,” added Waters, who had joined Assange’s brother and father at the New York event, which kicked off a month-long US tour to raise awareness of the jailed activist’s predicament.

      After video of the remarks was widely shared, Waters doubled down on his statements on Sunday and challenged “trolls” and “pr**ks” to “call me a hypocrite for posting this on Zuckerberg’s crappy censored platform @Facebook now.”

    The legions of people killed or crippled by the vaccine remind of the old story we all probably heard as teenagers about the couple who got stuck together while copulating and had to be separated at the ER. It never happened where you live, but somewhere over the mountain where the raconteur knew a guy who knew a guy who worked for the rescue squad.
    I’ve spoken to several hundred clients who’ve gotten the jabs and not a single one has had more than a day or two of feeling fluish and most just had a sore arm. This makes me wonder if the narrative is as made up as the one about thousands of innocent black men executed by racist cops every year.
    For the record, much as I wish the Biden cabal would go down in flames, I think it will stumble through its 4 years,to the detriment of all.

      You’ll have to meet with close to a maximum 30,000 clients to find the dead one. Of course, he’ll be dead, so there ‘s that.

      For serious injury, the number is a lot lower, 3000 or so. Of course, these folks are lying in a hospital somewhere suffering from neurological disorder, inflammation, embolism, stroke, or other clotting syndrome, so they might not be able to drop by any time soon.

      Still, the odds appear to be increasing every week, so just maybe someone might find the wherewithal to struggle into your vicinity and provide a firsthand report of their post-vaccination medical state.

      Or you can simply read any of the accounts online posted by the immediate families of the deceased and disabled and use your own best judgement as to whether they are sincere or simply looking for attention and undeserved sympathy. In many cases, take special note of their age and prior health status and the sudden and unexpected turn in their health and/or existence.

          The viral RNA was found in virtually every organ in the body, which means the spike proteins as well.

          There are antibodies (like the “vaccine” is supposed to create) but they’re irrelevant because, based on a study from Japan, we now know that the spike S1 protein is what does the damage.

          We spoke to one Infectious Disease specialist from a hospital in New Jersey this morning.  We sent the actual autopsy findings to him and asked for his thoughts.

          When he called back a while later, he was clearly shaken-up.   He told us “You cannot quote me by name, I will get fired by the hospital if you do.”   We agreed to conceal his identity.

          He then told us:
          “People think that only a MINORITY of people get adverse effects from the vaccine.??Based on this new research, it means that everyone – EVENTUALLY -will have adverse effects, because those spike proteins will be binding to ACE2 receptors everywhere in the body.  

          That mRNA was supposed to stay in the injection site and it’s not.  That means the spike proteins created by the mRNA will be in every organ as well, and we now know it is the spike proteins that do the damage.

          Worse, the viral RNA being found in every organ despite a vaccine, indicates either:

          1) The vaccine doesn’t work at all, OR;
          2) The virus is enjoying Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE), meaning it actually spreads FASTER in vaccinated people.??This is a GLOBAL TIMEBOMB.

          Exactly. Autopsies should be routine in all cases of sudden death within 30 days of the covid shots. Shouldn’t the pharmaceutical companies be collecting this data as part of their long term effects studies? They are doing those right? Right?? /s

          They don’t want to know, and neither do most health practitioners. If a patient presents with side effects after the shots, they are told it can’t be the vax; they are “safe and effective.”

          “Safe and effective” has become the chant/incantation de jour. Does the CDC believe if those words are repeated often enough, they will become true?

      Thank you, Mary. I watched that 15 minute clip. Can’t say I understood every word. But it’s good that scientifically grounded people are allowed to discuss problems with the mRNA vaccine and how spiked proteins attack the body. Far more people have had bad reactions than is reported by the MSM.

      In fact, videos like this have been taken down all over social media. 200,000 people kicked off Facebook for questioning the vaccines. The Powers That Be exercise totalitarian censorship to protect us from the truth. I guess if you’re Tekapo, that seems laudable.

            There are a couple of blatant in-your-face racists, and a few hardcore Anti-Semites … I think they have no credibility whatsoever, but also I don’t think they should be banned either. Free speech, no moderation, and all that.

            These are difficult issues. And Silicon Valley is not a one-way street … Trump was given free rein – some say far too much – for five years. Were you and others whingeing then?

            Governments can’t keep up with the huge growth of social media, and so they have “understandings” so that hate speech and other stuff is moderated.

            Unfortunately there are a lot of poorly educated people who are hugely swayed by the last rumour or mistruth they heard … there needs to be some social order.

            You think the Silicon Valley Royalty were kind and tolerant to allow a duly elected President to speak? You think they have a right to censor a President, eventualy banning him entirely from social media?

      Fact Check: Covid 19 Vaccines Don’t Produce Dangerous Toxins

      By Daniel Funke. June 8, 2021

      It refutes the video’s MD. I would like to know how the spike protein, by itself can attack a cell without the virus attached?

      That does not mean that the immune response by killer T cells against presented spike proteins on cells could not cause inflammation reactions. That would be individual I would imagine. The variability of individual reaction is something that I hope comes out from analyzing the VAERs data. Honestly, if that is possible.

      The lifetime of the spike proteins in the body seems to be 15 days before they are destroyed. Again, variable.

      I will agree with the video about one thing, there has been a huge coverup on the potential reactions possible from Vaxx. Also, it has been said that getting the Vaxx, even with its adverse effects is less dangerous than getting the virus itself. Not enough data exists to make that statement. A good start would be to show that intensity of immune reaction and long term effects from the virus are attenuated by getting the Vaxx. Data! Not video BS from both sides.

      The three stated that it is necessary to get real honest data to make intelligent risk decisions about the Vaxx. Could not agree more.

            Also? I don’t listen to a ‘side’. I listen to vetted (over years’ time) sources, not MSM bullshit. It’s too bad you still do.

          • MaryQueen June 14, 2021 at 8:37 pm #

            I.e., propaganda is not a ‘side’ – it’s propaganda.

            I know how to spot it a mile away.

            I study it. Took PR at university level, have read Bernays as well as Ellul, etc.

            STudied propaganda in film at university as well as 30 years on my own.

            You are implying the sides are somehow comparable and should be given even credence. “Sides” are rarely equivalent, neither in veracity of content nor in presentation. That’s why they’re called sides.

            It’s an information war, and has been for a long time, though intensifying greatly as of late, and serious consequences can result from acting on bad information.

            Mr Muller.

            We could argue all day about where the left-right divide is, and what far-left and far-right might actually mean. In party political terms, I reckon there are very few moderate Republicans, and very few liberal Democrats.

            In other words, both parties are rather more conservative than they are portrayed.

            I was just much intrigued by the “Those ARE the liberal corporate leftists who run USAToday …” concept. There are many on here who conflate “the left” with Corporate America – and it’s not a real thing.

            And USAToday is a low-brow middle-of-the-road popular newspaper – because it doesn’t have the far rightwing agenda of Steve Bannon, Alex Jones, or DailyStormer does not make it liberal-left. It’s a nonsense.

            You have to be a very long way to the right to see USAToday as a liberal-left rag.

            And I’m a very moderate center-left type indeed, I can assure you. A social democrat, but as strong on law-and-order as I am on health & education.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libert%C3%A9,_%C3%A9galit%C3%A9,_fraternit%C3%A9

    Note the power of three. Two alone is duality or contradiction. The third term is the reconciler of the thesis/antithesis, the higher third, the synthesis. Lloyd Austin’s, “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion” has none of this power. It’s just like saying Black, Brown, Black or something.

    Fraternity is the reconciler of liberty and equality. Or doing what you want and having community. But of course you can’t mandate brotherhood. As Bishop Sheen said, The early Christians shared what they had because they loved each other. Forcing people to share will not make them love each other though. So outside the spiritually elite of the monastery or spiritual community, it’s not workable. The formula of realism is:

    Free men aren’t equal.
    Equal men aren’t free.

    So where is the community? Check the article: some of the three fold formulations are better – like adding Justice instead of fraternity. It works if one expands the meaning beyond the merely judicial or penal.

            I feel for the next generation. Bombarded with propaganda from the predator class.

            A very large percentage of people in Europe rent their homes. Germany (at 50%) has the second-lowest home ownership rate in the OECD.

            Obviously it means that there are a lot of asset-rich owners somewhere, but it can also be a positive. It means that there has been a greater commitment to social housing, for one thing.

            And studies have been undertaken that show that renting a property for say 25 years can actually be financially better than owning one. With interest rates so low now, that might not be the case any more.

            Of course it’s not all about money – as someone who spent quite a few years as a renter, having control as an owner is an intangible that can be worth a great deal. On the other hand, your flexibility is removed, as you can have a really high financial and emotional investment in your “own home”.

            Here in Germany, the WEF/Green cultists are pushing hard for a Grundeinkommen, which is essentially universal basic income.

            They actually have groups of teens out on the streets “demanding” this now. Utterly clueless.

            Perhaps a clear-eyed acceptance of the fact that modern hi-tech capitalism is not able (or willing) to provide decent job for the entire population, and its not going to get better in the future.

            Maybe a UBI is the least-worse outcome … all the bright and motivated high school and university graduates will head on to decent jobs and careers, but for a significant minority a UBI might have a NET beneficial result – less crime, fewer drugs, etc.

            “Of course it’s not all about money – as someone who spent quite a few years as a renter, having control as an owner is an intangible that can be worth a great deal. On the other hand, your flexibility is removed, as you can have a really high financial and emotional investment in your “own home”.”

            Such things are only primarily ‘intangible’ to the privileged.

            The privileged being people who can afford to pay a market rent in retirement. For those who live on a lowlier plane, owning your own home is what enables you to survive in retirement. And, if it’s not eaten up by nursing home fees, to leave a few bob to your kids to whom nobody is going to do any favours.

            Seems to me there are a lot of people who *presume* that they will be able to live well in retirement, and many already retired who think next month’s pension is somehow assured. It’s not nearly as assured as the rent bill.

            But I like to think that if the whole thing goes tits up and my supremely modest pension stops appearing in the bank, I can die in peace within my own four walls without anyone throwing me out in the street for having no rent money. I guess that’s ‘intangible’, but also a bit tangible too.

            BTW, re continental European habits, I don’t know the situation now, but I had it explained to me back in the 90s by a German person that the authorities could take your house to pay for your elderly parents’ care. The situation here in the UK is that elderly people have to sell their own house and spend most of their other assets to pay for residential care, should they need it. But at that time at least, in Germany, once your own assets were used up, they could take your children’s house as well. Might even have included nephews and nieces if you had no kids of your own, but I don’t recall.

            That would be a very valid reason for not buying a house too soon.

            Depends a fair bit on where you are in the world, and the culture you inhabit. In some parts, if you don’t own a comfortable house – mortgage free – by the time you turn 50, then really are doing it tough.

            In other parts, you could be a zillionaire and still rent stunning apartments and love it.

            But I think for the average person – if they have the choice and opportunity – they would prefer to own something modest rather than rent something nicer in a far better precinct.

            I disagree that “intangible” applies only to the privileged. We have gone through the trauma and expense of four parents in nursing homes (two long term, two very short) – it was expensive and had some tough moments.

      You will own nothing.

      BS. Someone will own something or everything.

      What a statement. What a grab of power by the elite

      Feudalism, disguised as Soviet communism. Being shoved down our throats.

      American history shows a pattern of this feudalism. The Agrarian South used indentured servants from Europe , then slaves from Africa to man the fields. The CW took that away. Sharecropping became the next step which lasted until the internal combustion tractor obsoleted the genre, a big piece of the Great Depression causes.

      Manufacturing has required the same kind of ownerless labor during its rise and fall.

      The number one reason things are not being stripped from folks is the second amendment.

            And then even more loans with no repayment requirement at all will further increase the high-salary, garbage admin positions and sustain academic nirvana in perpetuity.
