Ol’ Tom Petty sure got that right: the waiting is the hardest part. The lines are drawn: vaxed on one side and unvaxed on the other. Can it be that the unvaxed know rather specifically what the dangers of the vax actually are? That they are making a rational decision, taking a stand, against a toxic hacking of their immune systems and systemic damage to their organs? It’s not that hard to understand, after all. Those spike proteins can kill you, if not right away, then steadily, steadily over the weeks and months. So, now we’re left to wait as the light wanes and we slide into fretful darkness.

And can it be that the vaxed are so clue-deprived that they have not seen the news? Sure, information was suppressed pretty tightly for two years since this madness started, but the news media, turns out, is as leaky as the mRNA vaccines. If you were even moderately aware, you could discover that the vaxes create havoc in your bloodstream. It’s right ‘out there,’ documented and for real. But now, if you vaxed up, and you happened to snag a clue since then, you have a powerful incentive for denying that you might have made a mistake and acquired a serious problem. And you have a support group of about half the nation to reinforce that denial and even demonize those unvaxed who keep hectoring you with conspiracy theories. Hard to fathom how much you hate them for it.

It looks like all of Hollywood’s zombie dreams will be coming true: civil war between the walking dead and the rest of us, who, let’s face it, cannot be faulted for getting the spooky feeling that we are being hunted down now. It’s kind of serious when you are deprived of your income, and also of access to all the common activities of daily life. Yet just this weekend we see what could be the opening skirmish, the Bull Run, of this new civil war: the “sick-out” of Southwest Airlines pilots and other employees whom the company is attempting to coerce into vaxing. These Southwest Airlines rebels threw quite a spanner in the works. Will the country even understand what happened? Will other vax-averse cohorts of sore-beset employees at other companies follow? Wait….

Meanwhile, we have the arrival on-the-scene of another joker: Merck’s new anti-Covid-19 drug molnupiravir, said to reduce the risk of hospitalization and death from Covid by 50 percent. Merck and its partner, Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, have applied for an emergency use authorization (EUA) from the FDA for this new drug, the same legal loophole that Pfizer and Moderna got for their mRNA vaxes. “Joe Biden” promised to spend $1.2 billion procuring a big batch of the new drug, so bringing it on must be a done deal.

The catch is, molnupiravir is in the same order of nucleoside analogue drugs as remdesivir, a clinically-proven failure in the treatment of Covid 19. The stuff killed patients left and right. Molnupiravir’s mutagenic mechanism is supposed to mess with the RNA of Covid-19 viruses, incrementally disabling them and killing them off. The trouble is, mutagenic drugs are notorious for broad spectrum action, so molnupiravir might do the same thing to the various cells in your body, too: instant cancer. I guess we’ll have to stand-by and see how that works out. It pays to remember, though, that the EUA didn’t work out so well for the Covid-19 vaccines, did it? The waiting is the hardest part.

Molnupiravir was shoved out onstage after two years of the public health authorities (Drs. Fauci, Collins, et al.) and the corporate news media casting curses on the existing suite of cheap drugs that proved clinically effective in the early treatment of Covid-19, namely ivermectin (a.k.a. “horse paste”), hydroxychloroquine, fluvoxamine, prednisone, etc. If you were paranoid, you might suspect that something was up in this attempt to roadblock cheap, safe, and effective treatments in favor of untested novelties that would just happen to be another multibillion-dollar boon for drug companies.

The thundering question, of course, is: who exactly are the authorities behind all this Covid-19 mischief? I’d suggest if you find out who installed “Joe Biden” in the White House, and who is running him, you’d have a few clues. It kind of looks like they intend to kill a lot of people. Pretty soon we’ll have a fair idea of whether it worked or not as the micro blood clots accumulate in 100-million-odd human lab-rats here in America and many more millions around the world.

They’ve also poured enough sand into the engines of the global economy to put it out of business — and, of course, the US economy leads all that. No heat for you this winter as you sit around waiting to clot up and check out. The unvaxed are watching this go down, goggling in horror at the fantastic credulousness of the doomed Woke, the legions of Zombies who foolishly allied themselves with forces of genuine evil. They’ve been on their knees worshipping Dr. Fauci, the FBI, the CIA, “Joe Biden,” and Rachel Maddow and everybody else brandishing cattle-prods of coercion and propaganda at them. They followed their marching orders obediently, like good little boys and girls, and took their shots. The lines are drawn. Pushing the unvaxed further will avail nothing (except now maybe a mighty push back). Mulder was right: the truth is out there. Wait for it. (Yes, the waiting is the hardest part.)

    Well, local media is blaming the 1000 cancelled SWA flights on ‘Bad Weather’, possibly caused by Climate Change.

      And a shortage of….wait for it….air traffic controllers. Funny how the shortage of air traffic controllers didn’t affect the other airlines.

        It WAS also a shortage of air traffic controllers. They sicked out too. https://libertyonenews.com/flights-canceled-after-air-traffic-controllers-walk-off-job-because-of-vax-mandate/

          That’s quite ironic…my cousin’s family in Minnesota: her husband, Mike, got his start at ATC when Reagan fired the union members back in the early 80s. It’s been a good income and supported a large family.

          They were always hard right GOP and went totally Trump in 2016, so they’d read this installment and by applauding. I’ll ask whether he’s quitting on principal or doing the smart thing (all round) instead.

          • hmuller October 11, 2021 at 3:05 pm #

            I mean this question sincerely, RL. When and why did “liberals” become such cheerleaders for iron booted oppression, total surveillance, the intell agencies, the corporate kleptocracy, violations of bodily privacy, an MSM which parrots the government’s propaganda, allows no dissent, investigates no abuses of power?

          • lizharmon October 11, 2021 at 3:26 pm #

            I can answer that question, HMueller. It was when they figured out that it hurt the Deplorables. This isn’t even about Trump. It’s about those of us who refuse to take a knee and bow before their bullshit narrative…things like intuitively knowing which bathroom to use and not putting pronouns behind our names.

          • RocketDoc October 11, 2021 at 4:00 pm #

            Real liberals never bought it. To be anti-war is anti FBI,CIA and other 3 letter orgs. We don’t like knee jerk Trumpists and Reagan was an actor. Biden is embarrassing. Whirl is King and there’s no direction home.

            Re: your question

            It makes sense for the cultures of resentment which form large constituencies inside the liberal circus tent. The “oppressors” nonsense is just pure resentment that their particular groups have not fared all that well in the civilization sweepstakes. This is why victimhood has become the Olympic sport it is in this country. When you have little in the way of accomplishment, it is psychologically easier to blame some other actor for your woes that it is to look in the mirror. Being able to coerce the oppressors™ (in theory at least), when a devotee of that mindset, is very appealing. I give you exhibit A in the form of the AOCs and Omars of the world.

            The power brokers adopting this strategy makes sense as well. They really don’t give two shits about the opinions of the average schlub (why start now since they never have). The Cadaver-in-Chief, for instance, if he can generate a cogent thought at all these days, considers himself the smartest guy in the room. Add in the galling reality of 40 years of political nondescriptness for one with such an inflated opinion of himself and totalitarian fantasies are hardly a stretch.

            The group for which it makes no sense at all is the middling white eunuch set… the native habitat presumably of the redneck. They hold no power and they are literally standing on the shoulders of the giants (White males almost all but that’s a topic for another day) who have made possible their hothouse existence. We all know the kumbaya, “allyship” hot air is just so much bullshit aimed at the weak-minded so I suppose resentment-by-proxy is a possibility but ultimately an objective analysis has to designate these castrati as what they are: a pathology, a walking side effect of a spoiled, over-comfortable existence… gimps in search of a master.

            I think it was when “liberal” became “woke.”

            I recently was taking a walk with an old acquaintance from childhood (not close friend) and had never heard the word “woke.” She is straightforward old-school liberal secular Jewish from Brookline, Mass.

            I explained: “All of the ideas you and I grew up accepting as moral and right and fair for everybody have been transformed into an intolerant ideology that imposes narrow, specific guidelines on everything we think and say.” I gave a few examples, such as the prioritizing in the national narrative now the concerns and outlook of groups that actually are tiny social minorities such a trans people.

            She immediately twigged and stated that she was tired of the pronoun business.

            AS Darren Beattie pointed out in his conversation with Glenn Greenwald, values seem to have flipped as “liberals” and “leftists” have become the ‘woke” shock troops for the Deep State. He pointed out that the woke are an integral part, now, of the Deep State takeover plan. Very interesting. I hadn’t heard this P.O.V. but as soon as I heard it it made sense.

            https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2021/10/01/glenn_greenwald_and_darren_beattie_new_evidence_of_fbi_involvement_in_january_6_capitol_riot.html

            The part of the conversation where Beattie talks about the flip between “left” and “right” in American politics starts ca. 2/3 through. They promised to have a show/conversatin just on this topic soon.
            I’ll be watching for it.
            Beattie is very, very smart.

      • hortonz October 13, 2021 at 12:24 am #

        I have a confession to make. I am fully vaccinated like two thirds of the population here in southern Ontario, but I feel like I’ve been coerced and lied to by my own government and the media just to protect the interests of the drug companies, If the MRNA vaccines are so beneficial to humanity they why aren’t the drug companies sharing them freely with poor countries? When the United Nations asked the big drug companies to forgo patent protection and allow drug makers in places like India to produce generic versions of the vaccines why were so many western governments including Canada’s lobbying to withhold these so-called “life saving” drugs from poor nations? Why did they promise to share their Covid vaccines with other nations and then renege on their agreement? Was it to protect the profits of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson or did the politicians know these vaccines had deadly side effects and didn’t want other nations to find out? And why did the government and media go out of their way to demonize the unvaccinated who refused to go along with the program when they knew that these drugs were lethal and cheaper and safer alternatives were available?

        • ThorsHammer October 14, 2021 at 2:27 pm #

          All vaccine mandates and vaccine passes are based on fraud, and illegal at their core.

          You may believe yourself to be “fully vaccinated” because your Leader has told you so, but that is not the case.

          In point of fact the injections of experimental biological agents pushed by Pfizer and Moderna are not vaccines according to the definition used by medical science since vaccination was discovered. “Fully vaccinated” is what the lawyers call a “Term of Art” AKA a legalistic construct. For non lawyers who still are capable of moral distinctions it is simply known as a lie.

          In the US the term has been refined to mean someone who has been inoculated with an experimental product manufactured by Pfizer or Moderna. All forms of vaccine produced by Russia, China or any other country are not recognized and censored. As a “fully vaccinated” North American you at best have received a temporary band aid providing partial protection against the original and largely extinct Wuhan strain of the COVID virus. Actual experience in the real world shows that its effectiveness declines to worthlessness within five to six months and is largely bypassed by the new mutant strains that any virus produces at a rate that never can be matched by vaccine development.

          Declining effectiveness requiring twice yearly booster shots is a key feature of the marketing plan of the demonic drug pushers.The most highly “vaccinated” countries like Israel are discovering that their ER’s are overflowing with patients who are “fully vaccinated’ but are becoming ill at rates at least as high as during prior COVID outbreaks. They are resorting to cancelling “freedom passes” issued on the basis of prior “vaccination” in order to force citizens to line up for their third or fourth jab.And in the US acting president Obiden has already received his “booster” in a staged PR event.

          Let’s cut to the chase: There are no “fully vaccinated” people anywhere in the world because there is no Smallpox type sterilizing vaccine- nor is such a vaccine possible for a viral disease. . Six months after being jabbed. experimental test subjects are as susceptible to becoming infected with COVID viruses as the UN-vacciinated. .They may in fact carry viral loads higher than the UN-jabbed. and thus be more active spreaders.

          All vaccine mandates and all vaccine passes are illegal and without merit as they are based upon the fraud of rewarding an impossible legalistic status called “fully vaccinated.”

          Look into taking NAC, Lumbrokinase, Ivermectin and Zeolite… might save you or at least delay the effects…

    • shotho October 11, 2021 at 10:11 am #

      It’s obviously a big issue today, but will the debate hold up as the financial implosion happens over the next year or two? It’s difficult to worry about vaccinations if you’re hungry and cold.

      • Rodster October 11, 2021 at 10:29 am #

        “It’s difficult to worry about vaccinations if you’re hungry and cold.”

        And that is part of their plan and why we are seeing a controlled economic implosion. It is why we stay alert and prepare because eventually this all will lead to violence. It always has throughout history. One of my favorite quotes from Gerald Celente is: “When people lose everything and have nothing else to lose, THEY LOSE IT”.

        Now is the time to stock up on food while it’s still available.

        • hmuller October 11, 2021 at 10:54 am #

          Yes, TPTB could use food and access to energy to force more of the unwilling to take their vaccinations. Is there anything too low down and dirty for Joe Biden and his handlers?

          • thirdcoastlegend October 11, 2021 at 1:13 pm #

            In Lithuania they’ve gone back to the old Soviet-style outdoor food markets to get around the clot shot checkers.

            In the US we know these as farm stands and farmers’ markets.

            Shortening your food supply chain is the best thing one can do.

            When they come for the farm markets…well…

            We still have a few “Honor Stands” around here.

            When you see an Honor Stand, you know that the tenets of Western Civilization still prevail.

          • Islander October 11, 2021 at 7:59 pm #

            Re “honor stands,” agree.

            A few years ago we had a problem with someone stealing from one of our established honor stands. honest people were punctilious about logging in, in the notebook, what they bought, for how much. So discrepancies between the cash box and the stock in the storelet were fairly visible.

            They put up a webcam and actually caught the guy. He was stoppoing by regularly to serve himself a handful of greenbacks.

            I guess business went back to usual, but I guess now the webcam is a permanent feature (the “stand” is actually a small shop with a cooler for milk, etc., hence electric current).

            BTW the kale plants I bought at the stand turned out not to be kale . . .

          There are several million Americans who bought AK47’s, brass and lead while the other preppers were buying worthless gold. that can be banned with a stroke of the pen. When they are hungry and cold they will not hesitate to take what they need. A full pantry vs 32 bullets in a fully automatic weapon?

          Civil war? My impression is that the USA is too fragmented to manage something as organized as a civil war or succession. So Anarchy it is.

            Uncle Bob— your suggestion that under the conditions of anarchy the Warlords and their soldiers would give a rat’s ass about whether they have a FFL permit from the Government for their armaments is just silly.

          “FOOD”? What is this “food” nonsense you are talking about? More fake news obviously.

          This is the Untied States of America. Breadbasket of the Cosmos. We take food for granted. Always have. Hell, we even fed hordes of krauts and nips after we beat ’em in ’46.

          (Old-timer’s Disease kicks in.)

          In the October 1962 crisis I remember supermarket shoppers in San Antonio manhandling four or five or even six carts loaded down with food through the cashiers and out to their cars. They were no fools. Of course if the Russkies bombed Bergstrom AFB (Austin) or Carswell AFB (Ft. Worth) the sparkling cloud of piping-hot radioactivity drifting down their way might well render all that shopping superfluous.

          There really isn’t such a thing as a “controlled economic collapse”. When they think they have everything under control and are profiting handsomely, God will throw a spanner in the works and something totally unexpected will happen and trigger a total meltdown. The conditions were set for collapse when FDR demonetized gold and Nixon removed silver and all other backing for the dollar. Since then the fight to keep the currency from becoming totally worthless has become more and more desperate. Then we moved to lean manufacturing and just-in-time inventories, meaning there are no reserves of anything in warehouses and everything depends on swift communication and transportation. To top that off, we bought into the idea that children were unnecessary and a burden on the environment – leading to the present situation where there are not enough working age people to support the elderly, endless war, and environmental degradation. All it takes is one disastrous event – a meteor strike, a pandemic, a nuclear war, currency collapse, climate change and the whole house of cards will collapse.

    • PeteAtomic October 11, 2021 at 10:14 am #

      All of this stuff reminds me of how the state run media in the communist bloc reported on events in the 1980s. It was all complete bullshit.

      We have “Let’s go Brandon” (when it is actually “Fuck Joe Biden”) and “mostly peaceful protests” (when the building is on fire in the background).

          Senile Biden positively YELLING at the serfs to take the shot – OR Else – isn’t working. It’s counterproductive, as the “Fuck Joe Biden” meme grows in intensity, and as the Southwest Airlines walkout shows. I hope more walkouts will be forthcoming.

          Now, Mr. K is reporting that 100-200 members of Congress and their families have been treated with protocols not available to the public.

          Could this extend as far as them receiving fake shots? Many believe that Senile Joe received a harmless saline solution when he was supposedly getting a booster. Maybe the needle retracted. In any case, standing up right away, putting his coat on, answering a few harmless questions, then walking away violated the protocol that you are supposed to remain seated for 15 minutes.

          How many of our rulers and their families, I wonder, also received fake shots?

      I support the pilots union.

      I’m dismayed that I have not read that the complaints bring up this concern: what happens if this untested jab leads to a sudden event (heart failure or aneurysm or stroke) at a critical moment in flight?

      I hope I missed it.

      Instead, they focus on violations of the Railroad Act that governs mgt-union relations.

      I hope I missed it.

      The US Air Force has a similar problem. When a pilot is flying a fighter plane from the US to abc-Stan (ferrying the plane), they can’t get up and walk around. What will happen if/when they get a blood clot in mid air?

      Another brilliant column, articulates my concerns very nicely.

      • Dr_Wellington_Yueh October 11, 2021 at 5:09 pm #

        They’re using the Railroad Act stuff because that’s currently the only actionable angle. If you said “…ain’t doin’ it ’cause deadly shotz!” You won’t get anywhere. “No data on that,” you see.

      • Islander October 11, 2021 at 8:06 pm #

        Socrates

        Yes, it does seem incredible that the focus is on the paperocracy, not on the danger to all of pilots with heightened danger of “events” in midair.

        It is well known that danger of clots is heightened in planes—partly by extended sitting/inactivity/pressure on leg veins and party, I believe, from the conditions of in a pressurized plane at altitude.

        My sister-in-law’s mother dropped dead two hours after getting off an transatlantic flight. Thrombosis in leg that traveled to brain—something like that.

        But they are all still dedicated fliers and jabbees. I don’t think they have connected the dots.

The deadline to show proof is still a week away, it will be interesting to see what happens.

        • feralandroid October 11, 2021 at 3:38 pm #

          I don’t know. One person in a critical position can bring a large organization to a halt. If the HR department walked out, would it make a difference? But if one key engineer decided to walk, it could bring a project to screeching halt. And the most productive workers will be those who think for themselves and not a bunch of NPCs.

          • Ron Anselmo October 11, 2021 at 11:39 pm #

            Excellent point Feral – the most productive workers are the hard chargers, the ones with initiative – the ones that think for themselves.

        Much hand-wringing here in Oregon as jab the “mandate” is reducing the amount of available nursing staff. The thing is it isn’t just the nurses it is also the CNAs and other support staff. These folks don’t get paid much so leaving a low-wage job that requires a jab is not a difficult decision. It’s hard to run a medical facilities without these folks.

        Abby, I retired from Southwest (LAS ramp supe.) not too long ago; and I can tell you that it was a good place to work – but over the past several years, labor relations have been strained. In any case, what is going on is not wx (weather) or ATC… what is happening is the in flight folks – Captains, First Officers, flight attendants – are using up vacation/sick/comp. time, etc. – before the Nov 1 Vax deadline. And. no one is picking up the shifts they drop.
        I heard someone say ‘well, then, when they get fired for not being valued, they won’t get unemployment.’ That would be “if” they get fired. But we are talking Captains and F.O.s for the most part, and with the money they make, I don’t believe unemployment insurance is too much of a concern in the short term…

        • Grandpa October 11, 2021 at 8:02 pm #

          “vaxxed” – not “valued”. Although in this context perhaps both are accurate.

          Playing paranoia’s advocate for a moment, I can see a really brilliant play for both Southwest and the Great Resetters. By their obedience the airline curries favor with the Great Resetters and with passenegers who can be assured that Southwest will do everything in their fauxer (faux power) to ensure their safety. The Great Resetters win because a minion shall not be moved by heaven or earth no matter what logic says. And The Great resetters win again because if a pilot should fall ill mid flight and cause a plane to crash well, hey, 400 passengers is small potatoes in the grand scheme of the 7 billion they’re looking to furlough from existence but every bit helps, right? It’s a win-win all around! Death is the name of the game, however it can be achieved, in one fell swoop or by a thousand cuts if necessary.

          • ThorsHammer October 11, 2021 at 1:17 pm #

            Fortunately Southwest staffed their fleet with a high percentage of Boeing Max aircraft. As everybody knows, those planes were designed to fly automatically with no input from the pilots. So they can just use stewardesses to fly them, or if they run out of fully vaccinated stews they can recruit from homeless camps. Fentanol addicts will do almost anything for their next fix, so recruiters need only offer a steady lifetime supply to their replacement pilots-in-training.

          As JHK notes, on every front, the powers that be are putting sand in the machinery.

          They will then use the chaos and confusion they have created to impose more draconian measures.

          One way to slow this down is for everyone here to write their elected officials that the vaxx is dangerous and should be individuals choice, and that we don’t want pilots getting blood clots while we are on the planes.

          The Biden administration will take illegal measures, while they are contested in the courts. Even if overturned, they will do damage.

          The US had the deepest divisions in my lifetime (I was a young child overseas during the Vietnam/Civil Rights protests and race riots). Now, even the divided are divided amongst themselves between unvaxxed and vaxxed.

    My Facebook feed looks more like a site for the religiously deranged. These guys continuously virtue signal about how wonderful the vax is and how anyone that doesn’t believe it is “insane”, “an idiot”, “a Trump supporter”, etc.

    I’m not sure who they are trying to convince but here is how I actually read it.

    “This train isn’t so bad and that we are packed together so tightly means the train carrier can save on having to provide heat. I’m sure that this ‘resettlement’ will be fantastic. I’m so glad we didn’t listen to the quacks that told us this train was taking us to a ‘death camp’. What a ridiculous idea.”

      I know of a couple of young (relatively) men who both got the shot at the same time.

      One honestly thought he needed it. His mother is seriously ill and cannot be vaccinated, and he himself has health issues.

      The other was virtue-signalling and thought he was giving an “in your face” to the conspiracy-theorizing Trump supporters. I know this because he posted as much on Facebook after he got the shot.

      These two men know each other. The one who got the shot for the normal reasons you might do so, is fully aware that he was duped.

      It will be interesting to see what the other one thinks.

          We would go camping and he would not sit down he is 62 and had to be doing something all the time.
          Went camping Friday into Saturday and he just sat in his chair drinking beer enjoying nature at Cibbets flats campground complaing about all his new and sudden aches and pains.

          The other within two weeks has a lump on his right butt cheek the size of cantaloupe. He went to the ER and they can’t figure out what it is and told him to ignore it.

            Just a note in case anyone is interested in an alternative vaccination. After doing my homework and deciding that I was not going to head back to the USA after 33+ years here in Indonesia, I acceded to an Immigration Office demand and got my two Sinovac (true vaccine) shots.

            I was sleepy for around a day after the second. No other effects thus far (three months and pushing).

            There have been a few reports of adverse reactions to the Sinovac shots but that was true for polio and the other old-fashioned vaccines as well, particularly when they were first introduced.

            If anyone is interested in pursuing this infinitely safer alternative (legacy vaccine made from weakened or killed virus) you can apparently get the shots across the border in Mexico.

            I note how Indonesia, like most other countries on the “foreign aid” tit, is now eagerly accepting the viral vector variety as well, so we’ll probably see medical horrors multiplying here soon. Many citizens already suffer from comorbidities (lousy diet, truncated average life expectancy, estimated ~30% smokers, huge diabetes problem, feeble genetics) so that’s what the establishment will pin the blame for a staggering death rate on. Thanks Pfizer, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca.

            And of course there are irresponsible nuts who refuse the shots here, as in the west. But only that tiny minority who are able to get the relevant info through the web.

            These developing countries still cannot get their minds around the fact that the Big Fix is in, and they are being fatally hustled by trusted western (and global) medical mafias. The global media blitz (looking at you Reuters) is also in on the scam. The have a major influence on third-world nations’ decisions.

            I should mention that even if you take the Sinovac shots, not that many countries will let you in. I immigrated to Canada in 1970 but now it looks to be off-limits for the foreseeable future, most unfortunately, as they only accept the clot-shot crowd. Fuck that. No way.

He used to be able to lift my VW off the ground. Now, he can barely walk more than 20 feet without collapsing. He’s giving away his stuff because he thinks he’s going to die soon.

But she is feeling virtuous about getting it- says she did it to protect her elderly mother and the grandkids. Thinks its the right thing to do. Ugh. Given that the vaxed get it and transmit it quite well, not sure why she thinks she is protecting them? I suspect the sheeple just won’t let go of their illusions too soon.

At each one the Conductor offloads another 100 billion into the Pfizer trough, and the sheeple receive another jab that temporarily protects them against a viral generation that has already been rendered extinct by normal mutations. As a side benefit, each new jab multiplies the likelihood of stroke, heart attack and miscarriage.

        By the time the Booster Train reaches the sixth stop the Conductor need only clean out the cattle cars and offload all the remaining carcasses.

    Any thoughts on recent shootings?

    Most mass shooters are black, according to a 2016 New York times report, and the vast majority of them are not the work of some deranged loner murdering people at random. they’re mostly gang-related or the result of brawls—as was the case for Simkins.

    SUSPECTED TEXAS SCHOOL SHOOTER TIMOTHY GEORGE SIMPKINS WAS BULLIED: FAMILY (NYPOST.COM)

    TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL SHOOTER RELEASED FROM JAIL ON BOND (THEGATEWAYPUNDIT.COM)

    of the four victims, two remained in the hospital thursday morning; one is a 15-year-old in critical condition and the other is a 25-year-old listed in good condition, police said. the other two were not in the hospital.
    when the attempted mass killer race was not mentioned, we who know, knew that he was black.

    police took simpkins into custody wednesday afternoon after he fled the scene and charged him with three counts of aggravated assault with a gun.

    Austin school shooting. Black man.

    Meanwhile, Less than a year after the Statue of Jefferson Davis was removed from the mall at U. T. Austin, a young female, dance student was raped, murdered, and dumped in a ravine on the campus.
    Against all likelihood, in an entirely unforeseeable turn of events, it turned out that it was a homeless NEGRO! (gasp in disbelief!) who was responsible for committing the horrific offense.

    • PeteAtomic October 11, 2021 at 10:19 am #

      Yes. I have many thoughts.

      When centralized power starts to lose its power, it creates a vacuum.

      There will always be “an order” of some kind. This order may be run by a militia, or a warlord, or a dictator, or some kind of association or other, or a new government. However, there will always be some kind of ‘order’.

      So, what we are seeing in urban centers in the US, are organized street gangs attempting to assert their ‘order’.

      Now, other powers may compete with this. Maybe a neighborhood association of decent people, or private security forces. I don’t know. But what broadly what is happening is a struggle for control for urban America.

      • BackRowHeckler October 11, 2021 at 3:26 pm #

        I don’t have a crystal ball but I predicted Street Gangs would step up to provide their version of security ‘In de Hood’, once municipal police dissolved. Also, Shariah Patrols in Minneapolis , and Portland.

      Funny how when a white kid does a school shooting claiming he was bullied, the media makes sure everyone knows what a pitiful non-excuse that is. I haven’t heard a peep of that, let alone the nationwide outrage that would follow a white kid being released on bond after doing something like this.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 11, 2021 at 10:47 am #

        There’s a video. I am all in favor of withholding judgement until the facts are examined in a court of law, but if they do it for this boy they should do it for others.

        • Paula D October 11, 2021 at 12:15 pm #

          I didn’t see the video, but I read on Facebook that in the video you can see that it was the shooter attacking the victim, but the media assures you that you are seeing the opposite.
          Check it out for yourself. I tend to believe that the media does things like that ( “You can see his head go forward”, “Peaceful protests”, etc.) so I believe they are lying about this also.

      • malthuss October 11, 2021 at 11:46 am #

        he was not charged with attempted murder, thats what gets to me.

    • abbybwood October 11, 2021 at 12:35 pm #

      Looks more like attempted murder to me.

      If the teen in critical condition dies it WILL become murder.

      Plus, isn’t taking a firearm into school a federal offense?

      Had a white guy done this to four Blacks I seriously doubt he would have been sprung from jail and caught partying with his family and friends an hour later.

      Something stinks with this.

    In this phone call, a health official slips and reveals that the unvaxxed have legitimate questions (as does the woman business owner on the call). This reveals what an absolute mess, hoax this is, and what utter bullshit they expect us to swallow:

    • Jarek October 11, 2021 at 11:47 am #

      That’s how it’s done. Go along to get along. Find out what your teacher wants, do it and get the good grade. Memorize what is given, spit it back on the test.

      Later at work: Find out what you boss want, do it, and get your check. Do a “good” job, and you’ll rise. Rinse and repeat. Good professors often realize their students don’t know what the hell they’re talking about in their papers. They’re just copying reams of stuff and putting it all together. The health official at least knew and admitted that none of it made much sense.

      The caller is someone who can think. Great point within the perimeter of the narrative: the unvaxed are much less of a threat than the vaxed to other people. She was trying to be polite and didn’t ask the question, Well why get vaccinated in the first place then?

    Good morning, Mr. Jim. Thanks for the blog today.

    I’ve been watching the emerging energy crisis with coal, petroleum, and natural gas supplies.

    Similarly with what BRH just pointed out there with the pilots, energy shortages are being blamed on everything from covid to “bad weather”.

    The propaganda operation run by the MSM is really amazing. The general public is being deceived on everything from the truth of energy use, to covid-19, “climate change”, the potemkin economy, and politics, among other crises.

    We are in a dark tunnel, forced to watch the shadow play, while puppet masters manipulate what occurs behind us in the background.

      What do you expect when the Lifers in the Democratic Party have been chipping away at the foundations of our country by playing divide and conquer. Divide and conquer, instill fear of something eg Trump or Reagan, stir in bogus things to incite fear, eg racism, anti White bias, climate change, then find one thing to steer public opinion eg, the pandemic. Covid, the molehill that became a mountain. It does not help that the other side blows the whole thing out of proportion giving the Leftists a gigantic target to shoot their arrows at.

      • JTinMD October 11, 2021 at 10:35 am #

    In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill.“

    Together with John Waters’ recent essay at Substack, about Dr. Mattias Desmet, and today’s post by Mr K, we have the makings of damned good case against woke GloboCap. Light the torches and grab your pitchforks!!!

    Watch the news tonight and see how that witch Norah O’Donnell tries to spin that as caused by “weather” and “air traffic control.” They’ll either run the story with the complete BS cause or they’ll bury it altogether. It has become almost comical how seriously these liars just lie straight into the camera. I’m not sure if Norah is smart enough to know she’s lying or if she’s such a psychopath that she enjoys lying to the American people night after night.

    That the damage has already started is becoming rapidly apparent; how far it goes remains to be seen. If the trend continues, there will be a huge pile of bodies under the rug rather soon. Gonna be hard to not notice at some point. We’ve got a limit case in credibility being put to the test.

      Thanks to “the Science” most of the post-vax deaths are NOT being autopsied.

      Just bury the evidence of full-body micro clots and auto-immune diseases etc.

      The FDA, CDC, NIH, Pfizer, Moderna etc. are all saying, “Ssshhhh….”.

      • tresho October 11, 2021 at 2:01 pm #

        “most of the post-vax deaths are NOT being autopsied” Autopsies fell out of fashion decades ago. A few COVID-19 deaths have autopsies associated with them. Very few. That teenager that recently died very shortly after getting the jab got a lot of publicity, but apparently no autopsy.

  10. MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 10:22 am #

    Very excellent article today, James, thank you, and happy Monday to all.

    I am seeing more and more that the unjabbed are under direct attack, as the ghouls running the show try to start a civil war.

    We are resisting, though. I was under the impression that the US was 70% jabbed. We are not. We are around half, as James says. No wonder the covid death cultists are losing their shit. Just saw that Rolling Stone did an attack piece on Eric Clapton for the sin of revealing his vaccine injuries to the public. Heretics must be burned at the stake; death cult heresy is not allowed.

    Check out this map. I was very surprised to see that my Idaho is more vaxxed than California! Imagine that. Must be due to all the new plants from CA. In any case, it’s still 60% which seems to be the high end anywhere.

    https://www.mayoclinic.org/coronavirus-covid-19/vaccine-tracker

    Favorite line today: “They’ve been on their knees worshipping Dr. Fauci, the FBI, the CIA, “Joe Biden,” and Rachel Maddow and everybody else brandishing cattle-prods of coercion and propaganda at them. They followed their marching orders obediently, like good little boys and girls, and took their shots.”

    It really is pathetic what we’ve been seeing from these people for the past 2 years. The level of their insanity has been cranked to 11.

    Their minds are completely gone.

      I would suggest the numbers are even lower. Here in Germany, the cultists like to claim the population is 80% juiced, but the propaganda keeps intensifying.

      I would deduct about 25% from those stats — same as with the phony election polls. This stuff is all run by the same criminals.

      • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 11:20 am #

        I agree. I’m gonna assume Mayo Clinic’s numbers are inflated, and if so, that might mean that actually less than 50% are jabbed. Wouldn’t that be interesting?

      I’ve also heard that SouthWest employees that wish to remain unjabbed are taking their vacation and sick leave before the mass firing. I salute these folks! I hope it spreads, even though I am flying soon. Folks already hate travel by air, all this just dooms the industry even more. After my upcoming trips, I will be driving.

      • JohnAZ October 11, 2021 at 11:07 am #

        Gee, I wonder who might be behind the anti airplane movement.

        Do the initial GND mean anything to you?

        The nutty Left signature is all over this reaction by the labor movement in the airline industry.

        Remember that this is an organized movement and it’s warning shots

        America and Spirit were first, now Southwest. Who is next?

        Vaxx is just an the latest excuse in the war between labor and management.

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

          I don’t know how Southwest or any airline doesn’t understand that the government would just as soon see them go out of business.

          The same goes for the small businesses and restaurants that support the Covid measures and the politicians who advocate for them.

          California’s governor doesn’t want restaurants cooking with gas.

    The whole divide and conquer tactic fails if “vaccinated versus unvaccinated” is replaced with “mandatory versus free choice.”

    Encourage vaccinated friends and family to side with choice. When someone has been scammed and defrauded it’s counterproductive to mock or shame them; they already feel ashamed, destabilized, and defensive. Joining the free choice side will help them out of denial. Make the positive case and don’t get in the weeds on the usual “scientific” points : PCR, China, origins, PPE, models versus statistical facts.

    That said, you know you are dealing with a deranged blockhead when the “you don’t have a right to infect others” nonargument is raised. It’s very easy for these types to collapse into screaming rage after a follow up question or two–you don’t want them on your side.

    • Tate October 11, 2021 at 10:57 am #

      “It’s very easy for these types to collapse into screaming rage after a follow up question or two–you don’t want them on your side.”

      Calmly respond that they’re “shedding” on you & that they should remove themselves immediately from your presence.

      I certainly hope that Jim is wrong about the spike poison. All of my friends & family have taken the shot. But time will tell what the damage will be. The larger danger is that the so-called “passport” is just an opening wedge to install a regime of total control over our every movement, purebloods & taintedbloods alike.

        • Tate October 11, 2021 at 11:23 am #

          I should have used another word than “larger.” It’s the danger lurking in the background even if the shot itself isn’t a mass killer. But I suspect it’s just the other barrel of a double-barrelled shotgun.

        I think a whole lot of them got saline. No way those corrupt drug companies could pull off manufacturing all those millions of doses, with strict standards and difficult manufacture, and that have to be kept at -70 degrees at all times, including during transport and storage at the stadium parking lot.
        I know too many people who say “I had no symptoms, not even a sore arm”.
        Yeah, saline is painless like that.

        • spaingaroo October 11, 2021 at 4:53 pm #

          that’s my theory too. Had to be a mountain of saline shots in there, also because the whole thing is an experiment for the anti-aging shots that the powers are trying to develop. Can’t have an experiment without a control group, even if it is secret.

        I think the passport might fly in hipster areas of Hollywood etc. where the crowd is youngish and the restaurants are computerized.

        But the mom and pop places I frequent do everything on paper and are already bitching about not having the staff or time to follow City of Los Angeles protocols.

        Will they have to take pictures of the paper cards for folks who don’t have the IPhone App? Will they have to pay attention to dates?

        What about those who had two jabs in February/March and no booster? Has their “spike immunity” already waned to 20%?

        If so, and they can still spread Covid, what will be the freakin’ point comparing these jabbed to the unjabbed who had Covid and now have natural robust immunity?

        The science! The science!

    • MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 11:00 am #

      I have seen quite a few vaxxed people on social media willing to stand up for the unjabbed. These are the ones that were duped into it but are still on the fence. In otherwords, those who haven’t joined the Covid Death Cult.

    The Market Ticker dude has broken down the latest data out of the UK:

    “Unfortunately what this means is that now for anyone over 30 you are more likely to get infected, yes, adjusted for the population that is vaccinated, if you are vaccinated. Indeed in the 40-49 age group you’re close to double as probable on a per-population basis.”

    https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=243859

    There are actual MDs going around claiming you get a special kind of immunity from getting the shot and then getting sick.

    • JohnAZ October 11, 2021 at 10:55 am #

      For every claim that is expressed in this blog, there are five counter claims and a fact check to disprove what they say.

      Who is right?

      Who should Joe Average believe is telling the truth?

      The current move into the use of mRNA has a huge future. Beaucoup de bucks are tied up in the “success”, statistical impact of the Covid shots on the population. Identification of people who are adversely affected by the shots is critical. They now have 180000000 folks in their data base. Have they killed those people over two years. They better hope not, as this country and the world is going into the Stone Age as every human endeavor will cease with only half the population to run the show.

      The height of conceit is the current lot who think they are the good guys of the Rapture because they are refusing the vaxx.

      It is the right of every person on earth to vaxx or not. The idiots of the Left talk about how are democracy is threatened by the Right, they are the source of rights being denied. The mandates are just another step in the loss of our democracy. That loss will be measured in 2022.

In other words, the harm will be buried in the statistics over half-a-decade, which will be manipulated by the government agencies to show no difference.

          • Tate October 11, 2021 at 12:00 pm #

            btw, that’s one reason for all the shortages & job vacancies. The late Boomers are retiring early & there’s no one to fill their shoes. Their children are living in the basement & see no reason to enter the workforce.

            I have outlived a yuge number of doomsday scenarios, and have concluded that a genuine doomsday, if it ever happens, will be something none has predicted. The narrow miss with an all-out nuclear exchange between the USA and USSR during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 was totally unknown and unpredicted by the vaunted US intelligence community until about 1992, when the new Russian Federation opened its archive.

          • Soul Forensics October 11, 2021 at 2:14 pm #

            Tate’s “slow attrition” post echoes my thoughts.

            Of course, if enough fear and coercion works to the tune of, say, 85% total pop vaxxed up, they can ramp up the shorter-term death totals in subsequent boosters for the idiots who still think they’re protected by them.

            How anyone can defend the vax, knowing full well that it is still possible to catch and transmit the virus, not to mention the blood clots, heart issues, etc, is baffling to me. Vax Armageddon may or may not happen. Still, even if it caused no harm, it affords no benefit either.

          • Night Owl October 11, 2021 at 2:54 pm #

            Cbeard —

            Indeed. The safety record speaks for itself. IIRC, the current crop of phony vaxes had more safety issues in a few months than all other actual vaccines combined in history over the course of their use (meaning decades in many cases).

            A red flag like that is indefinsible, and only the crudest of idiots would overlook at — or worse, attempt to defend such a record.

            tresho, that whole affair was truly fascinating, if scary. The seasoned Ambassador Dobrynin, along with his boss in Moscow, took care to convince the young and inexperienced (and probably scared shitless) Jack Kennedy that urgent and decisive action to resolve the confrontation was imperative.

            I paraphrase the Ambassador: “We need to work this out peacefully before it gets out of our hands.” Once the missiles start flying hither and yon no one is paying attention to politicians any longer.

            Curtis LeMay was goading the President to go for it. Kennedy mused “Can I afford to lose twenty million voters?”

          I think he does regret. Maybe he wasn’t aware. Or he had a hard choice. Or actually thought it would protect him and his family.

          Whatever. I’m pro-choice on the vax. Out of necessity, since so many people naively took it. They cannot us in-take it. No point in adding to their stress level, or earning their enmity.

          We have enough from the PTB.

          JohnAZ seems like a well-intentioned fellow to me. He thinks he found kindred spirits here, as most of us dislike “wokesterism” and the excesses of the Biden/Obama regime, which are… pun intended, illiberal.

          But many of us, certainly myself, despise even more the BUSH/Clinton regime, which facilitated Biden/Obama.

          I wonder where JohnAZ was when, viewed through the prism of a conventional world view (not the prism of resource constraints and illogic of belief in permanent growth, which the Long Emergency book shared with its readers), his GOP Pres, that dirt bag Bush, took away many of our civil liberties? Started an ruinous, expensive, illegal war? Bought votes with the Prescription Drug Benefit?

          Other than Ron Paul, and a half dozen others, where was the GOP, JohnAZ? Where were you, my freedom-loving friend?

          Or how about when the money-grubbing GOP teamed up with dirt bag and master grifter Clinton to pass NAFTA for their clients?

          The PTB have run things since 1913. But even so, even as the control most wealth, that is not enough. The want more. They want to control you directly, and they are using technology to do this in both the West (US/Euro) and East (China—social index).

        There is no question about who is telling the truth. The Tickerguy has backed up every one of his claims about everything from the (non) virulence of covid, to the value of early treatments, to the deleterious effects of the vaccines, with solid data and studies.

        The claims to the contrary by “authorities” are in contradiction of studies, clinical experience, massive epidemiological data, and often their own data.

    I got 2 shots of the Deutsche vax quite a while ago now.

    So far so good. I haven’t had any side effects that I can measure. So. Maybe I lucked out? I don’t know. We will see.

    I don’t believe in forced vaccinations however. If you wanna get vaxxed, that oughta be completely up to the individual. There ought not be any sanctions on people who decide not to.

    The average age of death for covid is 78 years old. So, instead of firing all these young, healthy, working age people, the focus for vaccination ought to be people over the age of 70. Correct?

    Why isn’t the government arguing for firing people who won’t get the flu vaccine?

    Corporations like to cull out employees periodically to justify the claims of all the bean counters. Watch their bottom lines. The pandemic has made it tough on the airlines as their attempts to fill every seat to balance the books has failed. So a reaction to falling revenues had to happen. Put a mandate on and cull out the “troublemakers”. RIFs like this are meritless, so good pilots etc are going out the door along with the dregs.

    Southwest is the first and certainly not the last.

    • MiddlePeninsula October 11, 2021 at 10:45 am #

      JohnAZ,
      They just “blame” the bean counters. A large credit card company, a major employer in my area “fires” ten percent of their workforce every year. Folks who routinely had great reviews in the first three years are fired on the 4th year due to sudden poor performance. It’s a turnover thing so they can hire new folks at lower salaries.

    To those who believe that conspiracy is and always has been the way that those who hold and wield power control the minions they rule over, the total compliance of the willing half is easily explained. The systems, especially the public education system was long ago converted from a tool of education to a method of programming and control. While our host and I may have been raised in an era where “question everything” and “don’t trust the government” were the rules of the day, a large part of the modern herd has been indoctrinated into falling for catch phrases and words of power such as “racist”, “the science”, “make you safe”, which impart immediate compliance for those who fall for it all.

    It has been many moons since any American has had to fight off hostile primitives or blue-belly invaders, or even have to have any concern about where their next meal will come from. The complacency that the easy life bred into our citizens has so many of them so lackadaisical these days that they are angered by the idea that they even have to think for themselves. Much easier to let someone else do your thinking, mow your lawn, or even raise your children so you can concentrate on the most important business of chasing the buck or entertaining yourself into oblivion.

    Many of us believe that we are very close to finding out whether this decay was all part of a conspiracy or simply just the way the empire crumbles. If it IS conspiracy we will soon be meeting the new owners I would think. If it is not, well then it will simply collapse into chaos. A real shame that there does not appear to be a more acceptable end to it all. Perhaps I am missing something.

      Well said, Walter B. I do believe it is 100% orchestrated, and not just incompetence or organic. I’ve seen evidence of the ghouls in charge plotting it all out, down to the smallest detail.

      We’ve been under psychological manipulation for decades, thanks to the TV. Now we have all of social media to bolster that. Most people don’t live in the real world. I’m amazed that any of us can see through it. It’s usually people who have had hardships or people like you who got to deal with the system through stints in politics.

      Americans are weak and the ghouls know it, that’s why they struck now. We depend on the current system for everything and don’t know how to live outside of it, so we entrapped ourselves.

      A number of people here have referenced Tainter’s work. One observation he makes is civilizations seem to have a life cycle not dissimilar to the human life cycle in its stages.

      I’ll add, since civilizations are made by humans, having a life cycle would be consistent.

      • Anthea October 11, 2021 at 1:07 pm #

        Nock’s “Our Enemy, the State” makes the case of the cyclical rise, decline, and collapse of civilizations very well. This has been going on for 5,000 years. Nothing new here. We, unfortunately, are living in a civilization that is in the final stages of collapse.

        “”Such,”says Professor Ortega y Gasset, “was the lamentable fate
        of ancient civilization.”A dozen empires have already finished the
        course that ours began three centuries ago. The lion and the lizard
        keep the vestiges that attest their passage upon earth, vestiges of
        cities which in their day were as proud and powerful as ours – Tadmor, Persepolis, Luxor, Baalbek – some of them indeed forgotten for thousands of years and brought to memory again only by the excavator, like those of the Mayas, and those buried in the sands of the Gobi. The sites which now bear Narbonne and Marseilles have borne the habitat of four successive civilizations, each of them, as St. James says, even as a vapour which appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away. The course of all these civilizations was the same. Conquest, confiscation, the erection of the State; then the sequences which we have traced in the course of our own civilization; then the shock of some irruption which the social structure was too far weakened to resist, and from which it was left too disorganized to recover; and then the end.”

          Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
          Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
          Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
          And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
          Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
          Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
          The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
          And on the pedestal these words appear:
          My name is Ozymandias, king of kings;
          Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
          Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
          Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
          The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

      The new Chinese owners don’t want us here, except for some slaves to work the farms. They need our farmland and our bought or blackmailed leaders will give it to them without a shot being fired. Last year, the Chinese lost a quarter of their crops due to flooding. This year, it looks to be about half. The people are being told to tighten their belts and only eat twice a day. Grand solar minimum. When we look into the past, we see that such eras involve a rather drastic decrease in population. For the remainder, it’s a pretty miserable existence. How long can the party survive if they can’t feed their populace? I think we are going to be hungry and cold this winter, too.

At this point I am clearly more angered and offended by the greedy scum that have sold us out than I could ever be at those who worked so long and hard to implement this treachery.

        If we are lucky, the new owners will toss out the sellouts to the angry mob for paybacks before they turn their attention to sorting we common folk out. Unfortunately for me, I cannot join in the retribution process because of my faith, although I will be hard pressed to not take any pleasure in the event that they get what they deserve in the end. Knowing that they were doing it and knowing that they were being allowed to do it leaves me with only my Faith in God to sustain me till it is over.

          I believe that only around 50 to 60% of the adult population has taken that jab they are pushing. The formula for the spike proteins comes from China, you know. That is a problem, and you can see the desperation to get needles into arms in short order, including as many children as they can reach. I think our masters are on a tight schedule here, and they believed the injections would be better received. We’re still armed, as well, so they can’t risk being as heavy-handed as, say, Australia.

          There are probably over 100 variants already, due to viral immunity escape, that the vaxxed have no protection against. Antibody dependent enhancement will get the ones the clots don’t take out. and it is intended to kill off as many as possible over the winter. I believe the goal is at least 70%, with another 15-20% freezing to death, dying of starvation or violence over the winter. What do you think Kenesha is going to do if she can’t get formula for her baby? They can’t simply nuke us and risk contaminating the farmland, and they can’t use an EMP because of the danger of melt down in the nuclear power plants. In any case, they will want to use them.

        draupnir, Clif High discusses all this in his latest podcast, Flux Woo, on Bitchute:

        https://www.bitchute.com/video/6UoprWnLdauS/

        He talks about the Chinese general who wrote a book called Unrestricted Warfare, in which he outlined how China must destroy the West (all of it, not just the US) and take over the land in order to grow food for China. Therefore, they want to get rid of the people and not damage the land. So anything that effs up the land will be out–no nukes, EMPs or such. Nothing that will cause our grid to go down and consequently make the nuke plants melt down and make the land uninhabitable/useless for growing food for centuries. it’s a very complicated problem, which they’ve been working on for a long time, and the virus (and the vaxxx) are the solution. Get rid of the people–all the people except for blacks in Africa, which they will keep to breed slaves, and some Asian types. Etc., etc.

        There’s a great deal in this vid–he says the Grand Solar Minimum is the major cause of the rollout of the plan right now, since crop failures are here now and are anticipated to get worse as the GSM progresses, and the CCP is terrified of their people revolting due to hunger. So it’s all driven by Chinese hunger and the need of the CCP to feed the people to keep them from revolting. The election of DJT derailed the plan for a while and now the CCP’s rushing to catch up. He discusses a lot of history that I don’t have a knowledge base to assess, involving Mao and the International Geophysical Year and such. Interesting, if true.

        Clif’s out there, but sometimes I enjoy his stuff. If what he says is even a quarter true, it looks like shit’s hitting right about now.

          pranah,

          Clif High is indeed high, but on something more euphemistically referred to as “illicit substances”.

          I saw that 70 minute video too. Terrifically entertaining, as usual. But there are so many unsubstantiated, and frankly bizarre non sequiturs during it — with so many wildly incoherent connections — that I can’t take the guy seriously for more than a minute.

          The CCP has won the debt war with the U.S. They’ve also already installed their blackmail networks in regards to political reps and media figures at every level in the U.S. Now they’re just waiting for the West to collapse. Why would they put themselves in harm’s way by going kinetic?

          High’s insistence on crop shortages is true, but overblown and out of context. If the situation were as dire as High maintains, then why are China’s exports rising year-over-year, including his “danger” period of 2019, 2020, 2021? Yes, flooding and (though High doesn’t mention it) droughts have affected their crops, but they don’t solely rely on the developed world for their food imports. They increased soybean imports from Brazil by 91% last year. It’s also why they’re overtaking Africa. In short, China is experiencing short-term problems which, even now, are being adjusted for.

          Then, of course, no podcast from High is complete without at least a few references to the upcoming Twilight Zone alien battles!

Doesn’t mean that the most out-there woowoo people can’t have insights or truths to disclose–the challenge is always how to tell what’s true and what’s not.

            Clif says that the CCP is putting themselves in harm’s way now because of the Grand Solar Minimum causing crop failure in China, and it’s anticipated to cause much more failure in the near term, so the CCP wants the farmland NOW. That’s what he says–not saying I have the knowledge to say he’s right or wrong. I figure it’s something to keep in mind, regardless.

I even bought one of his predictive linguistics reports years ago, when I was following George what’s his name’s blog, but it was mostly unintelligible word salad, and I paid $10 for it. I do have a background in medicine and am an amateur historian, though I am a medievalist, so I am not ungifted in research, and find many of his historical comments to be not consistent with the accepted version. I find his claims of travel in the astral plane totally outré and discount such things, no matter how much LSD he took. I do find some of what he has to say useful. I don’t share his optimism for the outcome of this war.

    Taking a mRNA based COVID vaccines is like playing Russian roulette. Here are some facts.

    “According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2017, at least 3,454,269,356 doses of vaccines were distributed in the United States. These are the vaccines that are covered by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, such as DTaP, MMR, Hepatitis A and B, HPV, and flu, etc.” – vaxopedia.org

    During the same period of 2006 to 2017 from openvaers.com: 2249 deaths total, meaning 300-400 per year. This year: 16313 reported deaths as of October 1st! Some experts say it is still underreported by a factor of five but we will see.

    The current count of COVID vaccine dosages in the US: 485,713,525. That means we should be seeing about 300-400 COVID vaccine related reported extra deaths when compared to that 3,45 billion and 2249 deaths. In other words the total number for this year in the VAERS system should be somewhere around 700-800 by now, when the other vaccine deaths are also included. Certainly not 16313!

    According to Statista.com, 15110 people under 40 have died of COVID in the US. 27172 in the age group 40-49. With the very probable serious case of underreporting, these vaccines are causing more deaths among people under 50 than COVID. A lot more!

    • MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 11:08 am #

      Yes. No one under 75 or so was dying of this until the vaxxing started.

      Oh, the media would call some sepsis deaths ‘covid’ or some pneumonia deaths ‘covid’ because of course they had to keep the hoax going.

      Flu disappeared last year and people don’t seem to think that’s significant.

      The problem with your numbers is that they ARE numbers and we all know that Americans have no idea what numbers are. It may sound like a joke, but it is not because it is true, that when schools need to find math teachers they have to import them from countries like India, where math is still alive and well. The only math that far too many American consumers know is how much the monthly payment will be. Unfortunately the credit scam makes mincemeat out of their ability to manage even that number.

      On the reality side of what you say, well done a shame only the enlightened will understand you valid point!

        I didn’t used to think that about people–that they were mostly math-challenged. The ability to solve quadratic equations rarely comes up socially.

        I took all the advanced math and science classes in high school, and I think I assumed everyone did.

        Now I see people posting on Facebook that they don’t think algebra should be taught in high school, because they never use algebra–which figures, because if you can’t do algebra you are unlikely use it. These same people will assert vehemently that what kids should be taught in high school is life skills. Presumably things like how to tie your shoelaces and operate a toaster.

          We tend to project ourselves and what we know and can do onto others and that is usually not accurate. There are many out there that may be similar, but there are some that are far more intelligent or able and a very substantial number of those whose brainpower is barely enough to make their lungs move in and out. The tough part is caring for these and not despising them, especially when they act poorly. The challenge of life.

          • Anthea October 12, 2021 at 9:52 am #

            A lot of people who are not particularly bright are very fine people. Others are merely pretty decent.

            I never really thought much about the intelligence level of those around me until covid. Seeing that some were having a hard time following data and reasoned arguments brought me around to thinking about their intelligence level in general, as observed over many years.

            That’s when I realized that some people who are very dear to me likely have subnormal intelligence–as in an IQ of around 90. They can still be witty and charming and have a sterling character and be warm and loyal friends. You would never guess that they were a little “slow.” But if you look back, you see that their reading comprehension was poor, and that they read very little, always selecting purely sensationalist material. Then you realize that you have never known them to contribute to a conversation at an intellectual level, even if they were a regular font of humorous stories and sometimes even sparkling conversationalists. And they are usually much-addicted to TV.

            A lot of slightly subnormal people have refined manners and an excellent social sense. I think this may be one of the hallmark characteristics of the mildly subnormal. The herd instinct and the wish to please is almost all there is to them. And they often do please. Since these qualities are not very prominent in my own character, I have often been impressed by them and their unerring instinct for the sentiments of the herd and “going along to get along.” This is a talent I do not possess.

            Many such people are avid collectors of little badges that affirm their social status: their attendance of cultural events, watching the history channel a lot, where they went to school, their trip to Europe or the Holy Land, the Latin class they took in high school, who they are related to, who they know, etc. These types usually manage to work their perceived resume into every conversation.

            Covid caused me to take a closer look at a lot of these people and realize that they are actually borderline retards.

          • Walter B October 13, 2021 at 7:45 pm #

            Anthea, I find your commentary to be extremely insightful, brilliant actually. The objective, as I see it, to dealing with all of our human brethren is to somehow find a way reach down to those that we can help and to reach out to those that need to do more in that regard. Accomplishing that and attaining any degree of success may not even be possible, but trying to cannot be an unworthily goal. For those of us that Believe, how any of us are faring in that regard will be judged once we are done. I only hope that I can put forth enough effort to at least stand a chance of some small success at the least. It is certainly not easy, but then what thing of value is easy to attain anyway?

          • Anthea October 14, 2021 at 7:38 am #

            Walter B and Mary–thank you.

            I think the key to helping people who, due to intellectual deficits, cannot be reached by facts and reason is to try to reach them by reminding them of core values. Often such people are religious. If they were well brought-up, they were taught to be respectful of others.

            Sometimes I think that one reason we have religion is because it makes moral behavior accessible to people who are not very good at thinking.

          “they never use algebra”

          Which is why they would come up to me when I was working retail and say things like, “I’ve got a gift certificate here for $50. What does that mean I actually get to spend, before taxes?”

          So I’d break out a piece of scrap paper and literally solve for X in front of them, and say, “You can spend $48.27,” or whatever. When it actually rang up accurate to the penny, they acted as if I’d turned water into wine. Particularly because I was a retail monkey. They were that gobsmacked.

          Perhaps those of us who retain the arcane, thaumaturgic skills of literacy and numeracy will be veritable magi in the next couple of decades. John Michael Greer is onto something with his “green wizard” terminology.

      Your opposition will say that these deaths are not vaccine related, read on it, that is what they say.

      So it becomes,

      Who is the best liar!

    • Paula D October 11, 2021 at 12:31 pm #

      I have seen convincing evidence that the CDC is covering up some reports and the true number reported is 45,000, or about 165 deaths every day from the shots.
      We know from relative’s reports that most doctors refuse to report the vax deaths, also. Too much trouble to do and also management frowns on them doing it.
      Judging from the (scrubbed) social media sites where people were unofficially reporting deaths and disabilities (like that TV station that asked for stirring tales of vaccine heroes and got slammed with a couple of hundred thousand death and disability testimonies instead) I would say that VAERS is vastly underreporting.

    • abbybwood October 11, 2021 at 1:31 pm #

  20. Phil October 11, 2021 at 10:44 am #

    Well, Jim, you always have been a brilliant writer and your world view was one I shared and endorsed, up to about five years ago. I read your books and found them excellent, and with the clear ring if truth. Then what happened? – You were dissed by some snotty academics at college visits (quite unfairly) and that seemed to have turned you to the dark side. Your failure to distance yourself and your views from Trump was the first sign. How could you not do this, given Trump’s complete lack of global ecological systems awareness, general ignorance on most issues, narcissism, sociopathy and megalomania?

    Phil– I’ve explained it many times, but I guess you missed that, so here’s another go: For all his flaws, Trump stood up to the Jacobin maniacs who seek to destroy our institutions and the rule-of-law. I suppose you’ve become a cheerleader for the FBI, the CIA, and the surveillance state. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself? You’ve become what you affect to despise.And eventually, you will get your mind-fucked mind right. Wait for that now. JHK-Admin

    Your current paranoia holds together logically if you ignore some facts, distort others, and in general cherry pick your information. You’re in a house of mirrors where your views are reflected back to you and amplified by your readers.
    Hey, I’m not thrilled by Biden, and the Democrats are far from perfect. But please!
    At your best you are an invaluable and unique intellectual resource for these troubled times. I, and the world, need the old Jim back!

        And you can point out that it was developed under Trump and you can point to Biden, Harris and Pelosi all saying they wouldn’t take the shot since Trump developed it, and it makes no difference to them.
        Apparently TDS twists key neurons in their brains and makes them completely unable to process information that contradicts their media-installed beliefs. They can’t even make it to cognitive dissonance. Not enough cognition.

        Hey, I’m just a normal American, living my life. As I assume you are as well. I take out my garbage to the road once a week, and say “Hi” to the people I meet on the street.

          I never cared for Donald Trump myself, but for me he was clearly a better choice over the demonic Clinton crook. And a far better choice than Dopey Joe too, although Dopey has done one great service for America in clearly illustrating that the real rulers of this land are not elected.

          • Night Owl October 12, 2021 at 9:07 am #

            His policies were largely quite good. He had some incredible accomplishments, including peace deals with NK and between the UAE and Israel.

            He was also doing a lot of good work to reindustrialize the US economy and reverse the many years of damage created by the global capitalist faction that has taken over the government.

            That said, most people never noticed because he was orange and the McMedia spent all of their time inventing fairytales consumed by a popluace with the attention span and collective IQ of a loaf of pumpernickel.

        • JackStraw October 12, 2021 at 9:18 am #

          Actually, you’re suffering from a serious case of simple envy. I have seen it in my own brother, who also hates Trump, but only because Trump achieved everything he didn’t. Like you, he never got the babes, nor achieved the insane wealth he dreamed of, so he detests those that did.

          • Night Owl October 12, 2021 at 4:07 pm #

            I agree. I said this back when he was elected, but much of the hate was due to what the TV image of Trump represented — that being the innermost desires of much of the American populace: wealth, power, and fuck-off attitude.

            Interestingly enough, Trump had a soft heart, and actually seemed to genuinely care for others.

          • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:05 pm #

            N.O., I can agree with that. Either Trump really does like the average Joe, or he is damn good at pretending that he does.

            The Jo Jo Magoos and Cacklin’ Kamalas of the elite ruling class can’t even be bothered to fake that they can relate to normal people.

            Did you see Cackles with those kids, talking about the moon?

            She doesn’t know how to talk to children!

          • Night Owl October 13, 2021 at 6:11 pm #

            I did see that. But the image of Cackles that stays in my head is her being led around before the Hollywood press gaggle as one of Montel Williams’s two hookers for the evening.

            I posted that video a while back. My jaw hit the floor when seeing it. I don’t think there exists a more embarassing piece of video tape of any US politician. Or if there is, I have yet to see it.

          • Anthea October 14, 2021 at 12:27 pm #

            Hatred and disparagement of someone due to envy is really quite common. Everyone who has ever done anything at all, from learning to play guitar to baking bread is famiiar with these types and their habit of trying to discourage your efforts with ridicule or disparagement. They really, really can’t stand to see anyone else accomplish anything at all. And if you think about it, you will notice that these are always people who never attempted to play a musical instrument or bake or sew or sing or paint a picture–or do anything at all, for that matter. And they have a visceral hatred for people do things, and even more so for people who succeed at them.

            If you’ve ever had some real haters or arch-enemies in your life whose motivation has puzzled you, there is a good chance that this is the explanation.

      Phil, do you believe that government reported statistics are not predetermined using highly tailored metrics?

      Do you believe that the mainstream-media is reporting the truth, investigating (searching for) the truth?

      Do you not see the near-constant backtracking, the continual contradicting, the brazen hypocrisy, and not to mention the total ignorance of countervailing facts/data displayed by the Democratic regime?

      Do you not see how the media and social media are totally determined to maintain ONE approved narrative?

        Neither a character, nor a fool, I am merely a Ph.D. who has taught research methods and statistics over many years.

        I think government reported stats are not predetermined. They are no doubt imperfect. I don’t think media are “totally determined to maintain ONE approved narrative.” I think social media is the home of the anti-vac, anti-government believers.

        The problem with social media, including this one, is that people can insult others casually, where they would be unlikely to do so face to face. For all you know I am a wonderful human being! You may be one too.

          Agreed, social media sucks and brings out the worst in us. You’re likely as good a person as any of us.

          That said, your use of thought-stoppers like “anti-vac” and “anti-government” doesn’t convey the intellectual nuance I *used* to expect from people with PhDs.

          If I have questions about this particular vaccination, why am I either “pro-” or “anti-” vaccination per se? Why the Manichean binary? Is it science or team sports? It reminds me of the Christian fundamentalism I grew up with, where questions are the product of the devil and not of cognition.

          Similarly, when, for the last four years, half of the country openly stated they were against the president, were they “anti-government”? Was Thomas Jefferson “anti-government” when he wrote the Declaration of Independence? What does it even mean?

          • Anthea October 14, 2021 at 12:50 pm #

            @Mary Queen:

            I had a business statistics professor in college, with a PhD. The first day of the class he gave us the basic equation for probability. It was incorrect. I knew this from high school math. Puzzled, I went to his office before class and asked him why he had given us different equation than the one I had learned in high school. He was embarrassed and admitted that he had given an incorrect equation. He gave the class the correct one that day.

            Now, the basic is equation for probability is pretty basic math. That he would not know it is incomprehensible.

            His entire course was a complete waste of time. No one in the class ever understood any of his lectures or the equations he wrote on the blackboard.

            Looking back, I have since realized that he knew nothing whatsoever about business statistics. In order to make people think he did, he used the “baffle them with bullshit” strategy.

            I suspect that there are a lot of PhDs like that.

            Also–again many years ago–I worked as a copy editor for Academic Press. Some of the PhDs whose books I edited were such gibberish that I couldn’t figure out what they were trying to say. (A big part of such a job is to re-word the author’s sentences so that they make some kind of sense.) After awhile it becomes clear to you that they are just stringing big words together randomly, on the “baffle them with bullshit” principle.

            Anyway, at the time I apologetically told supervisor that I could not tell the meaning of the author’s ramblings, but I had done the best I could to change them around so they made sense.

            My supervising editor just chuckled and said, “Klausmeier can’t write to save his life.” (I still remember that particular author’s name after 45 years.)

            “Also–again many years ago–I worked as a copy editor for Academic Press. Some of the PhDs whose books I edited were such gibberish that I couldn’t figure out what they were trying to say. (A big part of such a job is to re-word the author’s sentences so that they make some kind of sense.) ”

            Whoa, boy, do I know what you are talking about.

            I have copyedited hundreds of books, including by high-up academics such as, say, manager of the Stanford U business school. One I recall in particular much of whose writing was incomprehensible.

            I have had to do a hell of a lot of rewriting and recasting—after multiple rereads to try to figure out what the guy/gal is saying. Guys who make six-figure incomes while the copyeditor is paid $25/hour!!

            This also includes recasting sentences that cite percentages, and the language to do so is all wrong. Even checking the actual figures on a table, then recasting the text to match. Etc. I think a lot of these characters just have graduate students doing their work and writing for them.

            But I have often wondered: Who is actually teaching the grad students to write clearly if not their advisors? To think clearly? And then the grad students go on to teach sections for undergraduates, and who is correcting the undergrads’ papers?

          I call your bluff.
          Or you’re an adjunct at some junior college.

          We lecture attendees were made aware of the ability to set input parameters and input data, to affect the outcome with a preferential result in statistics courses.

          This practice, as well as using misleading definitions/terms/labels, is fundamental in bureaucratic agency reporting.

          It would be rather trite to trot out the, “these numbers don’t work for me” adage off the lips of the director, but it is commonplace.

          Do you seriously consider a comments section on a blog “social media”? Disingenuous is too polite. You know this is not social media. You know that Google, Facebook, Twitter et al., is not the home of the anti-vac crowd.

          The problem with typing to a stranger online, is that you can tell ridiculous lies, like yours above, and you can forgive yourself for them, because you did it politely.

          “I think social media is the home of the anti-vac, anti-government believers.” Phil! Is that why Twittter, YouTube, etc. BAN and shadow ban people with anti-vax data and opinions and/or conservative views? I don’t see key liberals getting banned by social media. How therefore can social media be the “home of the anti-vac, anti-government believers”??? My god man, WTFU. Social media is the exact friggin’ opposite of what you claim to believe. Are you that blind, really?

          • hmuller October 12, 2021 at 10:35 am #

            Phil is a graduate of the Joseph Goebbels school of propaganda. Tell them big lies, keep repeating the lies, and keep insisting those lies are the truth. Reference: the MSM and Russia-gate.

        • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:07 pm #

          Seems to me that throughout this plandemic, it’s the PhDs who are the easiest to bamboozle. I am assuming that is because you spent way more time being indoctrinated in universities to kow-tow to authority than the average person, who is able to see straight through the bullshit.

          If this plandemic hoax taught me anything, it’s that brainwashing seems to work best on the most highly educated (indoctrinated). And what do you know, at one point, Noam Chomsky himself opined similarly.

          • Anthea October 14, 2021 at 1:01 pm #

            If you look back on your college days and recall the professors with PhDs who taught your classes, you realize that most of them were unremarkable people. Less than half, probably, but still quite a few. Some, on the other hand, were quite remarkable. Makes you wonder how some of them managed to get a PhD. I can think of at least two professors with PhDs who were either dunces or frauds.

    • Phil October 11, 2021 at 1:59 pm #

      Hey Jim, I appreciate the fact of your responding. I would say that Trump didn’t stand up to anyone, per se. He was (and is) reflexively against anyone who he sees as opposing him and his quest for unchecked power, period. He doesn’t ponder competing ideas in any way, shape or form. Don’t give him credit for having any substantive ideas or beliefs. He’s entirely amoral, though cunning. Characterizing him as having “many flaws” is a vast understatement.

      No, your assumptions about me are wrong. I’m not a cheerleader for the Federal government or the surveillance state. Nor a fan of the Biden administration, for that matter. I do think you’re dead wrong on CoVid vaccine issues, however. Hardly mind-fucked, and not ashamed of myself, I follow a variety of sources of info and opinion, including yours, across the political spectrum. To me you have gone off the rails of late. One thing you haven’t lost is your writing ability. So I’ll keep reading.

      • zenfugue October 11, 2021 at 3:43 pm #

        For a guy who “… follow(s) a variety of sources of info and opinion, including yours, across the political spectrum,” it’s really hard to figure how you talked yourself into the Covid narrative! Suggest you do a little digging into Herr Fauci’s background… though perhaps slightly more sophisticated than Trump, a remarkably similar profile.

      • Paula D October 11, 2021 at 3:59 pm #

        Do you not let facts interfere with your opinions?
        If Trump let nothing get in the way of his unchecked grab for power, why did he not use the military to stop the riots all last year?
        Why did he leave the White House, even though he knew the election was stolen?
        Why is it that it is the Democrats who are calling for increased censorship, so that no one can ponder competing ideas in any way, shape or form?
        If you are opposed to power grabs, why do you not criticize Biden for mandating forced inoculations into unwilling subjects?
        Have you ever heard of the Nuremberg Code, which was written after the last time a powerful government experimented with unwilling subjects?
        What could be more totalitarian than a government forcing unwilling people into accepting a drug that is already known to have killed tens of thousands of people?

        • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:14 pm #

          2 days later, and *crickets* from “Phil”.

          As expected.

          I laughed out loud when he accused Trump of unchecked power.

      • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:14 pm #

        I hope you’re a fan of endless boosters that gradually destroy your immune system, because that’s your future.

        Sorry, Phil.

    • observex October 11, 2021 at 3:22 pm #

      I often say to people that Trump may have been and may be unfit to be President – but – no matter what you thought of his personality or tweets – the Trump Administration was correct on many of the biggest issues, and the country was clearly better off than under Biden.

      I’ve found that acknowledging upfront a person’s disapproval of Trump’s personality sometimes open a crack to the that person admitting we were better off 2 years ago.

      • Q. Shtik October 11, 2021 at 5:37 pm #

        but – no matter what you thought of his personality or tweets – the Trump Administration was correct on many of the biggest issues, – observex

        =============

        I have detested Donald Trump from the first moment I became aware of his existence (40 – 50 years ago?) to the present due to his narcissism and his Queens, NY accent (it grates on my ears).

        My detestation has nothing to do with his politics. I can’t even pay attention to what he supposedly believes or doesn’t believe or what he has or has not accomplished. All that is obliterated by his revolting personality and, yes, even his particular brand of NY accent.

        I guess that would make ME a shallow person.

        • Paula D October 12, 2021 at 12:11 pm #

          It actually makes you more believable.
          When someone says “I have hated Trump forever because”…..(and then they trot out the usual Orange Man Bad litany we have all memorized in the last 5 years) I roll my eyes and clock them as a liar.
          Same as when they say “I am a skeptic, but I believe in science and the vax, because in my extensive studies I have come to my own conclusions and they just happen to coincide with the government’s”. Liar!.
          But saying “I haven’t liked his accent for 40 years”?
          That I believe.

    • Walter B October 11, 2021 at 6:24 pm #

      Here’s an interesting statement from an article on Politico that points out Dopey Joe’s failing popularity which is propped up only by:

      “They point to polling showing strong support for his legislative agenda, anchored by physical infrastructure and social and climate spending packages.”

      That’s right, those fools who support him are happy that he is spending money that he doesn’t have, (just like they do), money that they are printing up out of thin air, without anything to back it at all except the failing faith of America AND the rest of the world. Yup, this ain’t gonna end well, but at least it looks like it will end sooner rather than later.

      • Not_GeorgeT October 11, 2021 at 9:55 pm #

        “but at least it looks like it will end sooner rather than later”

        I’m for sooner. I was for sooner in ’08, it should have crashed then.

        I was for sooner after Y2K and the mortgage fiasco.

        Unfortunately, can-kicking down roadways has been in vogue for a while.

        The bitter pill taken early decreases the need for larger pills with greater bitterness later.

        Hitting problems and issues head-on and resolving them is a better idea than letting them fester as an untreated wound.

        The much referenced PTB could not care less, they seem to just go on their way with impunity. People hoping for a soft landing will likely be disappointed. The lack of landing up to this point will make the landing much harder than it could have been.

        Is this human nature? I don’t necessarily think so. Rather, it is the nature of some. Unfortunately, the sum of the some is greater than the remainder of the rest. Brace for a hard landing.

  24. TravisB October 11, 2021 at 10:59 am #

    So lately as people I know are actually getting ill and hospitalized from (what I’m told is covid) I am starting to wonder. Is this a mass conspiracy organized by a bunch of unorganized groups for some vague outcome to..bring down world population (which I think is going to happen soon even without a mass vax kill off or some other extreme measure) Or is this just my normal detesting of being told what to do and coerced into something, by people who I detest, thus making me reject the thing (in this case the poke) and missing the context.
    I think one takes a gamble vaxing or not vaxing. I am the father of 3 and the main bread bringer. Surprising to myself, lately, I have been weighing the risk. I know people who have had hospitalization from covid. I don’t know anyone who has had any obvious issues with their vax. And as far as I can tell I’m the only one in a country mile among the folks in my life not vaxxed.
    Can I be sure that not vaxing is the right and safest choice for me in my position?
    Note: if I was not the father of 3 and important because of, as in it was just me, then there would be no chance of me getting vax. Alas…I just don’t know. I’m honestly weakening my strong “never vax” position

    • benr October 11, 2021 at 11:01 am #

      Why can’t it be all of the above?

      • TravisB October 11, 2021 at 11:06 am #

        I suppose it could. However that is just more speculation and doesn’t really help too much.

    • MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 11:13 am #

      What was your reasoning for being against the ‘vaccine’ in the first place?

      If it’s because it maims and kills people, then I’d say nothing has changed and you should still not take it.

      • TravisB October 11, 2021 at 11:28 am #

        I stated my reasoning in the front. Vaxes do hurt some people. But do they hurt as many as covid? Like I said, I know people who have been hospitalized from covid, and even friends who have had relatives die. As far as I know, I don’t know anyone who has been hurt by vax is what my quagmire is.
        So I’m asking myself “am I just running my normal anti authority program (which is almost always a good program) or am I making a decision clearly?”

        • Beryl of Oyl October 11, 2021 at 11:34 am #

          I made my decision on the fact that my risks from the vaccine are higher than my risks from the virus; and the fact that the shot does not prevent me from getting the virus.

          That business about preventing hospitalizations and deaths was the desired goal, but it hasn’t panned out.

          • TravisB October 11, 2021 at 11:45 am #

            How do you know your risk is higher from vax? What if the people who are sensitive to vax and have adverse reactions, are also the portion of the population that would get very ill and or die from covid?

          • Beryl of Oyl October 11, 2021 at 11:59 am #

            Mainly from statistics on people with my level of health at my age, but also from my own observations based on knowing two women who did get very sick with the virus, and informing myself as to what early treatment options are available to me.

            If all you get is nothing, zero treatment when you first get sick, and by the time you go back to the hospital they are REQUIRED to only offer you “treatment” that has a high likelihood of killing you, IMO the risk isn’t from Covid it’s from malpractice.

          • TravisB October 11, 2021 at 12:07 pm #

            I agree with that. Thanks for that. Treatment is definitely the un talked about part of this publicity.

          • Jarek October 11, 2021 at 12:10 pm #

            Because covid is a cold, dude. Almost no one dies from unless they’re old, very obese, or have some other major problem.

            In contrast, the Vax is maiming and killing the young. But they won’t stop it. Other vaccine campaigns were ended at 25-50 death. Something is up. And their refusal to stop indicates extreme malice.

        • Paula D October 11, 2021 at 1:02 pm #

          Also, what are your risks of getting covid? Do you work with sick people? Do you work in an enclosed crowded area?
          If you’re not exposed to covid, you can’t get it and you can’t die from it.
          That should also be part of your calculation.

        • Night Owl October 11, 2021 at 3:05 pm #

          No you don’t. The test is fraudulent. You have no idea what they had.

        • UN OUT OF USA October 11, 2021 at 8:24 pm #

          Travis, the mere fact that an untested, highly controversial “vaccine” is being MANDATED instead of allowing us to take long proven, highly effective existing drugs like ivermectin (it turned India’s Covid-19 situation around in mere weeks!), should tell you a lot. IT IS NOT ABOUT OUR HEALTH. If that were true, we would be able to get ivermectin (possibly even in addition to the “vaccine” for those who may prefer it). And now we learn that about 200 in Congress (and their families) have been treated with ivermectin. Doesn’t that make you think???Many have died from the mandated “vaccine”. Thousands (documented on VAERS)! Maybe tens of thousands since we know it is very time consuming for doctors to report on VAERS. A Harvard study (not a conservative bastion) concluded that VAERS may only be reporting 1% (!!!) of adverse reactions based on historical data from previous trackings. How you can still be thinking about taking the “vaccine” that isn’t a vaccine (since you can still get and transmit Covid) is beyond comprehension (IMHO).

    • Not_GeorgeT October 11, 2021 at 11:43 am #

      My thought: if you’re the father of 3 and concerned as “the bread bringer” you would seem to be young and thus in an extremely low risk group for something which is 99% survivable across all groups.

      One thing about injections. The day someone figures out how to get whatever is injected to run back into the syringe, such day will change everything.

      • TravisB October 11, 2021 at 11:48 am #

        Well I’m 45, so no spring chicken. I am (I would say) pretty dang healthy for a 45 year old.
        When I do get something like the flu it does tend to always end in weeks of coughing.

        • TravisB October 11, 2021 at 11:53 am #

          Also, as I write this, I know 2 people in their late 20’s who are hospitalized right now. As far as I know they are healthy generally.

            “Treatment is definitely the un talked about part of this publicity.” ~ TravisB

            Stay unvaxed – COVID survival rate is 99% – vax is 100% irreversible.

            At first sign of symptoms – take Ivermectin (68 mcg/lb body weight) one single dose and supplement with Vit C, Vit D3 & Zinc.

            You’ll be fine and you’ll be around for the little ones – vaxed, maybe not.

            You’ll be fine.

          • Night Owl October 11, 2021 at 3:09 pm #

            Well, you only have a 99.87% chance of recovering from The Coroneau with no treatment.

            Travis B: I appreciate your concerns. I’m in my late 50s and vulnerable to flu viruses in general because of respiratory problems. However, despite this risk factor, I will never take the jab, not just because I hate being bullied, but also because all the research I’ve done shows that the side effects are serious and sometimes deadly. Instead I try to build up my immune system with healthy eating and have laid up a batch of Ivermectin and home made hydroxychloroquine. That’s my two cent’s worth and hope it helps. Everything I’ve read screams at me, “Don’t take the jab!”

          • UN OUT OF USA October 11, 2021 at 8:36 pm #

            Travis, I am 70 yo. I retired 3 years ago but got a part-time job at a local golf course for free golf and a small salary (2 days a week). I am around a LOT of people and have never had Covid. For about the last year and a half I have been taking Vitamins C, D3, E along with Zinc, Quercetin and now NAC. No problems. Covid doesn’t scare me. Just be sensible. The high risk untested mRNA “vaccine”, which isn’t a vaccine, scares me way more than the Covid (flu).

        • Jarek October 11, 2021 at 12:29 pm #

          And what do you do about that? I used to get sore throats that last for weeks. I never get them anymore because I pay attention to the first signs of trouble, and then start taking lots of Vitamin C, Elderberry syrup, etc.

      About 27 000 have died of Covid in the age group 40-49 so far in the US. Yearly 40-60 000 die of just plain old influenza so the risk is relatively low. Only 5 percent of 90 000 died in England of COVID so far were healthy. They almost all had other sicknesses.

      This is overwhelmingly concerning people over 70 or otherwise already weak or vulnerable. Healthy people under 50 have very low risks, influenza like chances of dying.

    • Paula D October 11, 2021 at 12:58 pm #

      The vax was sold to us as a way to ”stop the pandemic” by breaking the chain of transmission by making the recipients immune to the virus.
      Now that it is obvious that that was a lie, and that tens of thousands of people have been killed by it, they tell us that they never said that the shot would make you immune, or unable to spread the virus, they just said that it would keep you out of the hospital (also a lie).
      It’s only been 10 months and we already know they lied about the effects, both the “immunity” (just like smallpox, don’t you know) and the side effects, which range from non-existent to disabling to death.
      If it were any other drug, it would have been taken from the market.
      Instead they are mandating it.
      The majority of people who died from the virus were obese and/or over 85 years old.
      The vax seems to target younger people.
      Remember that as you weigh the risks and benefits.

    • Hardrock October 11, 2021 at 6:12 pm #

      I see this decision from the broader perspective….which is: Where will I draw my line in the sand.

      !. Vax?

      2. Microchip – for my own safety of course

      3. Digital currency?

      4. Relinquish 2nd A rights?

      5. Suspension of the rest of the Bill of Rights – my liberty?

      6. My life???

      I feel in my gut that the vax is the wrong decision for me. I tell my wife to do whatever she thinks is right but the kids will blame me if anything happens.

      If this (VAX) is the wrong decision for me then why start down this path? The country is headed the wrong way now because people didn’t draw their lines in the sand a long time ago…..debt, wars, saving, education, crime, etc.etc etc.

    • SpeedyBB October 12, 2021 at 8:06 am #

      Get a “real” vaccine like Sinovac. Not guaranteed to be 100% safe but infinitely more predictable than the clot-shot.

      I’m not suggesting that an employer or Big Guv would respect it, though.

    • Wizard of the Saddle October 12, 2021 at 11:10 pm #

      Travis – Do the math. If you do nothing there is a high probability you will never catch the COVID as we are close to air at herd immunity. Even if you catchphrase it, you have a 99.7% chance of survival, on average.

      Those are mighty good odds, friend. Why gamble with your health by allowing some quack to inject an experimental solution into your body with the worst track record in hopistory for causing deaths and other adverse reaction impnjuries?

      Yeah, you *might* feel dumb if you reject the vax and later get sick and suffer terribly. But you’ll feel even stupider if you take the vax and permanently wreck your health or realize you are dying from a shot you really did not have to take.

The Great Resetters have decided given this reality they will be in charge of humanity’s collapse and the planet’s eventual restoration from all the pollution we produced (from the shit THEY sold us). Thank you Satan Klaus. I hope you choke on your schnitzengrubens!

        Why spend energy distracting a population that is already continuously distracted and uninterested in truth of any sort? Even in their own lives?

        • SouthernYankee October 11, 2021 at 11:24 am #

          I don’t think they’re trying to distract us as much as create conditions necessary to regulate/control people as the collapse proceeds because as the food shortages grow, as the fuel deliveries grind to a halt, etc… people will riot on a scale which will make the Portland riots seems childish in comparison. So the PTB really have their own self interests in mind, for after all when people say in Washington state really begin starving who will not storm the gates of Gates?

            But again, who exactly is “they?” And what is the avenue for all the “they” to not only get together, but to organize a global action. Not saying that’s not happening, but..

          • SouthernYankee October 11, 2021 at 12:03 pm #

            Bickell, re: your comment below, I decline your invitation down that rabbit hole. JHK has documented well enough some of the Deep State actors. The others you’ll have to research yourself. But know this. Just because I cannot observe a phenomenon or its elements directly does not mean that they do not exist. NASA says as much. And who will question the authority of a cosmologist (even when sometimes they have been wrong).

            “No light of any kind, including X-rays, can escape from inside the event horizon of a black hole, the region beyond which there is no return. NASA’s telescopes that study black holes are looking at the surrounding environments of the black holes, where there is material very close to the event horizon.”

            I like your thinking but the people who know more about survival than I do seem to think most people will be too busy getting food to try and hold the controllers responsible for their actions.

            I agree with you TCL. I am in that category as well. I’ll just be trying to not die from starvation. I realize that, on my own, I am powerless to stop what is happening. Still, if I must die I’d prefer to die knowing the truth rather than a lie. But, I’m a survivor (not a survivalist) and I strongly suspect that SY will live on even if considerably emaciated.

          Because there’s being normally distracted, then there’s being distracted and without a job, access to essential services and travel. Which is even easier to manipulate and control?

  26. SmokieHillVillain October 11, 2021 at 11:01 am #

    Another sublime contribution from Mr. Kunstler.

    It’s so refreshing – and more than a relief – to read a contribution from a journalist/commentator who ‘gets it’. Without media complicity none of this shambles could have happened. The levels of bullshit are beyond stratospheric, galactic being the only appropriate adjective I reckon.

    But the sanctimony is accompanied in equal measure by absurdity.

    With apologies for another Hiberno-centric post but media here are beneath contempt. So, we have a prominent talk show host who earns 400,000 euro a year (while facilitating the grift that is a well-known talent agency which controls all the media ‘talent’, and which is run by a friend of a well-known billionaire, himself with connections to the Clintons via Haiti); said talk show host laid into one of the players on the national soccer team who emerged last week as being unvaccinated.

    By the way, it appears that a majority (don’t have figures, but I suspect it’s in excess of 50%) of elite soccer players in the English Premier League have refused to be vaccinated. Quelle surprise. Don’t underestimate the significance of this apparent truth, whatever the actual figure.

    Our friendly talk show host spoke his mind as did the chatterati on mainstream radio. The air dripped with sanctimony and moral superiority purveyed by these doyennes of moral virtuosity. Utterly sickening. And somewhat bizarre.

    The best way to answer your critics? The player who was criticized for not partaking in the experiment proceeded to score two goals in a 3 to nil win against Azerbaijan in Baku in a (soccer) World Cup qualifier. (He said that he had Covid twice and thus, didn’t need the vaccine but it obviously didn’t dent his performance).
    [I suspect that many pro sports elsewhere are similar but stand open to correction]

    This has – thankfully – done no small measure of damage to the narrative.

    But the lies continue apace. But absurdity does not a very strong glue produce if it’s the only adhesive sticking the crumble of lies together. And a “crumble” it is. And “crumble” it will. Time, dear friends. Time. Give it a little more time.

        Just read a report yesterday from the Toronto Star, that wretched Woke rag, that said there was no (regular) flu last winter.

    • Paula D October 11, 2021 at 1:40 pm #

      I’ll bet that soccer player that dropped dead in front of millions of viewers might have made the rest of them more reluctant.
      And yeah, anyone with any sense knows that natural immunity is better than a vaccine.
      Up until now, people with natural immunity were not forced to take a jab.
      There is clearly another agenda.

  28. GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 11:16 am #

    So, for anyone interested, a few days ago I sent 2 emails to my husband, each with a link and nothing else.

    These are the links:

    https://mobile.twitter.com/PierreKory/status/1446312291302055940

    https://amgreatness.com/2021/09/24/over-3000-doctors-and-scientists-sign-declaration-accusing-covid-policy-makers-of-crimes-against-humanity/

    Both of these emails were stopped by gmail.

    Small print at the bottom says ‘temporary SMC policy violation detected’.

    It’s got closer to home.

    Not sure if it was the same day I completed the government consultation on vaxx passes but it might well be.

    Slugoon, let me know if this happens to you.

    My husband has no sympathy and no interest.

    • benr October 11, 2021 at 11:20 am #

      You have my sympathy.

      To admit this was all a giant scam and a lie is a huge step some are just not willing to make.
      Once done you begin to look at all the other big lies and your world view begins to get rather cynical almost like red pill blue pill Matrix stuff.
      That is just to damn scary for many people.

      • O.G. Hawkins October 11, 2021 at 12:27 pm #

        You are Right … but it is even worse than that.

        Not only are we psychologically-programmed to not take that huge step but, additionally, the injections Really are evil and they Really are tearing people apart spiritually as they brush the remains of God from their thoughts and from their lives.

        Yoho posted the most important link that I’ve read in a long time yesterday. Here it is again:

        https://narrowdesert.blogspot.com/2021/09/greek-orthodox-archimandrite-fr-savvas.html

        Everyone should read this, imho.

        —–

        GA, Just because the lying liars assure us in their phoney bologna documentation that no live fetus cells are in our toxic-poisons, that does not mean that that is, in fact, True.

        Lying liars lie. Always have, always will.

        With all that you have learned this year, you still call The Book of Revelation ‘religious nuttery’ (or some such thing) while it becomes history in front of your very eyes.

        God v Satan is Real and we now enter End Times Apocalypse, Armageddon, Judgement Day – The Works!

        Don’t let your incredulousness interfere with your witnessing The Truth.

          Excellent link OG, thanks for sharing it!

          I agree, imho, it’s an excellent read. The audio is more impactful, even for non-Greek speakers, more so for Greeks, but takes longer.

          I’m certainly glad I had the opportunity to listen while it’s available

        • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 1:32 pm #

          I never said anything about religious nuttery, OG – what are you talking about?

          • Jarek October 11, 2021 at 1:41 pm #

            You’re not seeing what he said. He’s talking about the aborted fetal cells. Is that religious nuttery? Really?

            You don’t believe in demons or angels. Thus not the Bible. We get it. Now move on.

          • O.G. Hawkins October 11, 2021 at 1:45 pm #

            Have I mixed it up, GA? I put it in single quotes because I wasn’t quoting verbatim but I am sure that I read you say, a day or 2 ago, something along the lines of:

            Yes, this is poison but some CFNers are gong off the deep-end comparing our modern times with Biblical prophesied End Times in religous nut-cakery.

            Am I halucinating?

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 1:46 pm #

            Wasn’t me, OG.

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 1:59 pm #

            I said two things today on the subject, with no reference to religious nuttery, end times or anything similar.

            Nor did I comment on demons except to say they’re not injected in vaccines.

            As regards the fetal cell lines, I provided a list on multiple occasions (compiled by a Catholic source) in order to HELP people who wanted to avoid vaxxed with any involvement of fetal cell lines. That was in the early part of the year.

            I couldn’t find it just now, but I found a Daily Mail article which I think said Pfizer and Moderna only used the lab-replicated cell line for testing of the manufactured vaccine, while J&J used in manufacture, so I got J&J wrong, for which I apologise.

            Didn’t realise I was in the dock. Even Jarek knows I’m not a fan of abortion. But he doesn’t know my views on angels, dem9ns and End Times because I have not expressed them.

            Christian charity, eh … wow.

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 2:04 pm #

            And this would be Jarek who complained yesterday about not being believed.

            Motes and beams, guys.

            Glad you’re not jury members in my trial. You’re as scary as gmail.

          • O.G. Hawkins October 11, 2021 at 2:07 pm #

            Christian charity is lacking? What of is it that which you speak?

            If you never said that CFNers are going loopy with religous zeal then I was hullucinating and I apologize for mixing realms again.

            My Bad.

            Your husband? Like my best friend of 57 years, the person I love most in all the world. I would call him on the phone, whisper, “Trump”, and hang up as he began screaming in rage.

            Yet, we spent last Christmas and January together, to watch the end of America.

            He insists I do so again, and I tell him that this time we would see the end of the world. He mocks and scoffs, since he, the wife and kids are ‘vaccinated’, and still demands that I come.

            I’ve not had the best of days, having had two visits to an MRI department, the first wasted because the machine wasn’t working, and the second horribly claustrophobic, before I even think about why I’m there in the first place.

            And then it turns out to be equally claustrophobic on here, being accused of things I didn’t say.

            Sheesh.

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 4:44 pm #

            And while I was entombed in the machine, having removed, as requested, all traces of metal, I suddenly found myself thinking about graphene oxide.

            So no, not the best of days.

          • Jarek October 11, 2021 at 5:15 pm #

            Yes, Alba. Getting vaxed isn’t just a mistake, it’s a sin. But unless you’re in a state of grace, you won’t see it that way. This man is a holy priest and felt his abandonment immediately. You weren’t in a state of grace and you willed the jab, so you didn’t feel anything. I assume I would feel something, but of course my will is firmly against it. If I am jabbed against my will, my psychic pain might be natural and/or supernatural. In any case any state of grace I have is no where near this man’s. And the supernatural pain will be mitigated by the fact that I resisted getting it to the best of my ability.

            Mary, I was/am trying to have a conversation with Alba. You tried to commandeer a thread by talking about something completely different – but pretending it was the same thing.

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 6:22 pm #

            So, no apology for accusing me of things I didn’t say. Ah well.

            It is not a sin to take a vaccine in good faith, before any adverse reactions have shown up, and only because you compared two hypothetical risks and chose one.

            There are plenty of religious people arguing the opposite of what you’re arguing. I got the normal physiological reactions – chills and fatigue, but shortlived.

            And by the way, I’ve bought three different Bibles since July – two e-books and a real one for someone to find when I’m gone. Not that I didn’t have Bibles in the house already but you’d need the eyesight of 20-year-old to read them.

            When you are man enough to apologise for accusing me of things I didn’t say, you may be assured of instant forgiveness. I don’t hold grudges.

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 6:38 pm #

            BTW, Jarek, I’ve asked you twice already how your theory of female compliance and male domination fits with the situation of living with a pro-vaxx husband. I mean, he’s the rational one, right, because he’s got dangly bits?

          • Jarek October 11, 2021 at 7:29 pm #

            Dangly bits? That’s hate speech. Your marriage may be in trouble if you think that way. You have my sympathies being married to a covid believer.

            Anything I say about the sexes and races are pertaining to averages. Queen Isabella was a genius, much smarter than her husband.

            I don’t know where your post anent nuttery went to. Maybe it was your general energy and then I conflated it with your erstwhile ally, Mary. I will keep looking. In the meantime, Sorry!

          • GreenAlba October 12, 2021 at 5:43 am #

            Thank you for your apology. Gratefully accepted. You will not find a post that is not there. What conversation I linked to is all there was on the matter.

            I also forgive you for not recognising dangly bits as common idiomatic humour. You are American, after all, and perhaps unaware of how often men elsewhere refer to their dangly bits as dangly bits. Or just bits.

          • Jarek October 13, 2021 at 11:44 am #

            Yes, men are supposed to embrace feminine contempt and learn to laugh at themselves. I don’t. And I forgive you for forgiving me for something I didn’t apologize for. And for your growing irascibility – which combined with obstinacy is what got you into this mess to begin with.

          • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:33 pm #

            I just reread this thread and the only coherent ones on it are me and GA.

            I am the one who said that conversations were devolving into religious nuttery and so they are.

            And pointing it out of course brings the fire and brimstone accusations of the sort SSL delivered on one of the threads GA linked to where she called me a ‘satanist.’ Hmmm.

            I don’t find bible verses or belief in God to have much to do with the discussions of covid19 or the plandemic. I have no issue with peoples’ faith until they try to push it on me or tell me I’m going to hell because I don’t believe exactly what they do.

            For instance, Walter B.’s idea of Christian behavior I admire. He seems to get it!

            The more fanatical behavior is no better than the cancel culture crowd tactics or the Westboro Baptist church. And it certainly will win no one to your side of the argument.

          • GreenAlba October 13, 2021 at 3:45 pm #

            Jarek

            You deliberately misunderstand because you have a need to malign women.

            Dangly bits is male humour, end of. Nothing to do with women.

            For example, I recall my husband 20 years ago saying ‘hang on, some of us have got dangly bits, you know’, when taking his time leveraging himself over a barbed wire-bedecked fence when out walking.

            Ditch the paranoia. It’s not good for you or your relations with the opposite sex.

        • Anthea October 11, 2021 at 8:24 pm #

          “This shit is evil. Evil to the core.”

          I could not agree more. Further, it stems from a Satanic malice that is incomprehensible to humans–as incomprehensibe as is God’s love. Just as, “Eye hath not seen nor ear heard what God has prepared for those who love Him,” so too that which Satan has prepared for those who fall into his grasp.

          Not everyone who has taken the jab(s)–or even supported the whole covid hoax–is evil. One such person I know is an elderly woman who has desperately tried to protect her husband (who has had one foot in the grave for years) this whole time, and has cared for him devotedly for years.

          But most who have embraced the whole train of destruction wrought by this fraud have made a willful choice in favor of evil, in favor of the Satanic. This is deeply disturbing and can only lead to a very bad place.

          Made me think of some lines from Robert Burns’ “Country Lass”:

          An’ wilfu’ folk maun hae their will;
          Syne as ye brew, my maiden fair,
          Keep mind that ye maun drink the yill.”

          • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:37 pm #

            Thank you, Anthea, for your measured approach to this subject.

            Most people have been duped into this. Probably most of them.

            The ones that are evil are the ones pressuring others to get it, or harming their kids.

            That’s inexcusable.

        As Jim said in the article, many don’t want to admit the truth because it is too terrifying. These are pretty weak and sheep-like people in the first place. Imagine having to look yourself in the mirror and admit that you did something monumentally stupid and may lose your health and even your life because of it. Denial is much more attractive.

        I am making a Pasta Fazoole today…using smoked ham hocks, bacon various broths, black eyed peas, an incorrect sized but suitable pasta, estate grown garlic carrots and tomato puree, store bought celery. Mixed Italian seasoning, oregano, crushed red peppers…salt and pepper.

        Suggestions?

        • Beryl of Oyl October 11, 2021 at 12:32 pm #

          I remember being invited to a childhood playmate’s house, on the special occasion of her mother making something called “pasta fazoo”.

          It turned out to be a bowl of macaroni with white beans. I was very confused by this.

        • MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 4:17 pm #

          What kind of suggestions? I have never made that dish and I’m a vegetarian, so it sounds disgusting – lol.

            ” Please provide evidence of Italian ethnicity…”

            Hereward,
            Ya got me. In my defense, however;

            I.ve been in jail many times.

            I love mafia movies.

            I had a friend, once, who admitted to being Italian.

            Best meals I ever had have been seconded by a bottle of Chianti.

            I have heard it said, and do believe that there are two kinds of people…Italians and those that would like to live like them.

            Mea Culpa.

      GA, sorry to hear “the guardians of truth” and public fact checkers are now intruding into private correspondence. I’m even sorrier to hear your husband doesn’t see this violation of liberty and privacy as cause for alarm.

      Now you understand why I was always ranting and raving life a madman against the “globalists” or whatever label one may put on them. (They have gone by many names and inhabit many diverse organizations.) But they are not our friends.

      I’ve not had any problems but it’s very rare that I send links to anybody, mainly due to the fact that I’ve nobody to send them to. (When it comes to Covid my kindred spirits are very much all here on CFN.)

      Is Gmail your provider or your husband’s (or both)? Reading about SMC policy violations suggests it is some sort of spam filter. It’s not necessarily due to you being on a hit list, or even the mail provider actively filtering Covid links. It could just an overzealous spam filter that doesn’t like links with nothing else, I’ve had this in the past with things I’ve both sent and received.

      I use GMX for all of my emails. They’re possibly as corrupt and compromised as the rest but at the time they seemed like one of the best alternatives to using a big tech account.

      • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 1:44 pm #

        Our provider is Virgin Media.but I intend to change them once I’ve figured who to use. Haven’t been able to access my VM email for ages – pre-covid problem.

        Hubby’s comment was ‘well you make your choices’, adding that he has no time for anti-vaxx stuff (I’m not anti-vaxx).

        When I asked if he was ok with censorship I got accused of wanting an argument! 🙁

        No point in sending him links anyway as he ignores them. 🙁

          Accidental multiplication of emojis there. I know even one is too many for some people!

        • Slugoon October 11, 2021 at 3:01 pm #

          I’m sure they were called emoticons when I was younger. I don’t know when they became ’emojis’ but I still prefer the ones formed from ASCII text.

          I’m resigned to a strategy of just avoiding all conversation about vaxxes and COVID in general now. There is little one can say or do to influence anybody. I think it goes deeper than just an opinion. People’s worldview, their attitude to risk, their trust in authority (or otherwise), their politics, a skeptical/cynical/contrary nature… there are multiple personality factors at work here that decide which side of the fence you’re on and rarely are people going to cross over.

          The ‘ignore’ strategy works well with my wife. Sorry it’s not as easy for you.

          • GreenAlba October 11, 2021 at 4:57 pm #

            From my WhatsApp group I got numerous comments from people saying they’d listened to the scientists and had decided to take the booster.

            One, who used to do research for a living, pointed out a ‘fact-check’ owned by blah blah, who allegedly takes no part in editorial decisions.

            At that point, I left them be. I tried, so my conscience is clear.

          • Slugoon October 11, 2021 at 11:58 pm #

            Who is to say they are not right? Don’t get me wrong, as a libertarian the past eighteen months has been utterly horrendous and this mass vaccination scheme is at the very least disingenuous if not sinister or worse.

            But from the point of view of someone on the other side of the fence the booster may make sense just as the initial vaccine may have. Maybe it does reduce the chances of death or hospitalisation, however briefly, and whatever long-term damage it might be doing.

            I’m convinced that the vaccines and boosters are largely useless myself and have not ‘saved’ anyone despite the claims but if people won’t look at the data that’s their problem. If this stuff does turn out to be bad long term I shall just do what I do now, keep quiet and let my inner voice say “your fucking choice wasn’t it.” You’re a better person than I am for at least trying.

        Protonmail
        Tutanota

        There are a few others.

        No service is fully trustworthy, but those two have been pretty stable and have been used by notable individuals who saw through much of what has come to pass far before it came to pass.

            It is a fine line. I am not against releasing IP information if the authorities can provide verified information showing that the individuals in question have committed crimes, but this situation is also a reminder that none of these sites are truly safe.

            As far as the Covid Hoax goes, I have accepted that if Western countries go full banana repulic, nothing will stop them from piecing together whatever they want from my Net history in order to do whatever they want.

            At that point, laws don’t really matter, so they can always find a way. They are already doing so in Australia.

    Well, ladies and germs…another sign of the Apocalypse;

    Newsmax…you know, a site you can trust…has just reported that Herschel Walker, great NFL running back, is receiving donations for his bid for a Senate seat in Washington;

    https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/herschel-walker-senate-trump-georgia/2021/10/11/id/1039955/

    Well, I remember his retirement comments when he left the game…said he wanted to spend more time smoking marijuana. On this I shit you not…saw it on the Tee Vee. Even I was shocked.

    At the time, smoking dope was a felony offense in many venues. Perhaps he did not…inhale? Naww…he inhaled like a motherfucker….

    Here is some information on the WEF’s role in the pandemic.

    It’s good to see that there are people hot on the trail of who TPTB are.

    The WEF and the Pandemic

    How is the Davos World Economic Forum involved in the coronavirus pandemic?

    The Davos World Economic Forum (WEF) is a premier forum for governments, global corporations and international entrepreneurs. Founded in 1971 by engineer and economist Klaus Schwab, the WEF describes its mission as “shaping global, regional and industry agendas” and “improving the state of the world”. According to its website, “moral and intellectual integrity is at the heart of everything it does.”

        Re ID2020, I just checked and I sent an email to my (small) list about this back on april 7, 2020.
        I wrote:
        “To me it is becoming clear that the issue of vaccines. particularly in the person of Bill Gates, is not a fringe crank topic but actually a central locus of a power struggle as to what this Covid pandemic is about: Who is pulling levers to control the corona narrative, control the people, and crash the economy as a means of control. I have seen some of Gates’s pronouncements, and I am convinced that the guy is off his rocker. But he has the bucks, and the influence. Enormous power via “Global Health” entities such as the WHO, Gavi (a Gates Foundation creation), and others that he controls with $$$ and via his support of and from others with similar agendas, such as reps of Big Pharms (e.g., the bozos Fauci and Birx. BTW Birx’s daughter works for the Gates Foundation. BTW, none of these people, including Tedros Adhanom, a Gates-Clinton creation, is any kind of medical practitioner).
        xoxo K
        PS. See this on the ID2020 program to inject “identities” into all the world’s people:
        https://www.biometricupdate.com/201909/id2020-and-partners-launch-program-to-provide-digital-id-with-vaccines“”

        It scared the s— out of me.
        The video of Gates embedded in the Swiss Policy document show a guy definitely off his rocker. But this unelected austistic case is running a large portion of the global show.

        No one on my list reacted to this in any way. I am still get TDS type emails from some. They are deranged about Trump and don’t seem to register the big picture.

        Now it is all coming true. Someone has to k— b—. And K—-.

        PS. I am horrified to see that the creep and crminal Bill Browder is a WEF darling. Sez it all. Note: No one from Russia among the “young global leaders.”

    How I pray that some press card carrying reporter asks the key question, ” if it’s a proven fact that the vaccines are safe and effective, then why haven’t we lifted ban on liability.” I’d bet you’d hear crickets if anyone ever bothered to ask.

    Query:

    The mainstream media narrative is that the only people not getting the jab are uneducated, ignorant, right wing racists.

    Hundreds of well-educated Southwest pilots are refusing the jab.

    Does this mean that Southwest has been hiring right wing racist pilots all this time?!?

    That must be it!

    Southwest pilots are secret Klansmen!

    Who could have imagined?

    Praise Gaia that the mandate reveals our allies and enemies!

    • MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 1:02 pm #

      Yes. If you refuse the jab, you’re an uneducated hick and therefore a Trumper.

      This is how the libs think.

      Well, they don’t think. They react.

      • Night Owl October 11, 2021 at 3:20 pm #

        That is really all they think on the matter.

        Remember, the Quaxxine was a Trump initiative, and there are hundreds of prominent libs and Hollywood/entertainment folk who posted on Twatter and made public statements about how they would never take the Trump vaccine — including Kamala Harris.

        And then Joe Joe came along, and now we have mandates and can enjoy the spectacle of the transnational corporate class and its low-IQ left/right flock linking any criticism of the clot shot to MAGA rednecks.

        It’s highly entertaining, but also quite sad. The more intelligent usually have well-developed sense of empathy and the ability to self-reflect, which takes some of the enjoyment of laughing and total fucking retards away.

        • MaryQueen October 11, 2021 at 4:24 pm #

            Re his “afraid of needles” screech-out, it looked like that was the only explanation he could think of, or dared say outloud, as to why someone would reject the jab.

    The beautiful irony is that those who were productive thought they held power by threatening to go Galt.

    Likewise, Jim and his fellow earnest public policy wonks sincerely believed they were the smartest students in class.

    But no one on either side of the intellectual spectrum could have imagined that the thinkers were already leagues ahead of both groups.

    Covid was used to initially slow the economy down, whereas the Vax is the insurance policy to assure it never resumes aka the new normal.

    Just last month, Jim was issuing dire warnings about the impact of mass quitting across many sectors if authorities continued to push the Vax.

    Duh! That was the intention all along. It’s easy to see the priorities, with leisure travel being one of the primary targets.

    If you don’t get what this is all about, then I don’t know what can help. We blew through 200m years of stored solar energy, reaching a pop of 8b. The cliff is soon approaching, and the thinkers had to act.

      Rode my bike down the street to watch the air show Sat afternoon and see the blue angels . 1m red blooded Americans all in one place. 9m more and there’s your 3%.

      Canceled the next day due to the “oil spill”. Never any tar, wetlands undamaged. Saw some small hazmat crews standing around picking their noses. Beaches closed for the week to punish those that represent Biden biggest thorn in his side.

      Trust me, there’s a lot of talk, but I don’t see the bightest pennies. I stood there observing the people as much as watching the show.

      This is an entire society that has been gas lighted. They were told to fight various made up enemies, and they did. They don’t think and they really don’t have many unique attributes other than to follow orders.

      The elite took their measure and found it wanting. Jim has carved out a small niche preaching consequences, but I’m convinced they game played and are confident they will prevail.

    Know, Jim, that the “vaxxed” aren’t a homogeneous group, and that many of us stand with La Resistance. I took the jab (no consent forms of any kind were ever filled out, btw) post-mandate to keep my job to keep my health insurance. That irony is not lost on me. What has been lost was whatever shred of respect or allegiance I had for the folks in charge, regardless of “party” or “ideology.” They’ve lost me permanently. Not sure what that means yet, other than that it means something.

          Redneck Liberal – as a liberal redneck myself, I am neither happy with nor proud of my decision. It’s certainly been a mess, if not a mess of potage. I’ve had to journal a lot about it to process all the feelings: rage, disappointment, self-pity, back to rage, etc. I will say that as someone who is dependent on Big Pharma to survive, it wasn’t much of a free choice. More like Sophie’s choice.

    I remember four perfectly healthy British Airways pilots dropping dead shortly after their shots. There was, of course, no relation to the shots. That there is right wing white supremacist domestic terrorist talk!! They died of natural causes and their deaths were not recorded as being related.
    So that’s OK, then.

    The latest Public Health England Technical Briefing 23, Table 5, shows the death rates of vaxed vs no-vax groups. Surprisingly, once you get fully vaxed but catch covid-delta, your chances of death are 3x higher than the non-vaxed person who catches covid-delta.

    But in Table 7, the authors ignore the raw data in Table 5 and put forth a vaccine mortality effectiveness of 90-99%. In fact the vaccine is completely ineffective at reducing mortality … their data shows it increases it.

    My dissonance again goes into full bloom as I read the comments hereabouts. It’s as if folks are commenting on a different blog post that they have read on a different site.

    It seems to me that the tip of the bullet that virtually everyone [nearly all self-proclaimed smart cookies] is ignoring is the armor piercing tracer bullet:

    “It kind of looks like they intend to kill a lot of people. Pretty soon we’ll have a fair idea of whether it worked or not as the micro blood clots accumulate in 100-million-odd human lab-rats here in America and many more millions around the world.”

      My feelings as well. I feel as though folks should be further along in their understanding of the situation. Too many seem to believe there’s some sort of ship that will right itself but actually there’s no longer a ship.

  43. D from OR October 11, 2021 at 1:22 pm #

    While I find most of the folks here aware of the situation I still find it some things that boggle the mind:

    — Some of you use Gmail? What’s up with that? Why? And you are surprised they may censor. Wow.

    — Some recently have figured out that the corporate entities they work for don’t deserve respect and allegiance. They might not care! Again, people are figuring out that out just now?

    — Some think that writing to politicians is worthwhile in 2021

    It’s a bit dissapointing. I just thought that everyone could see we are on the other side. You can see the enemies can’t you?

    Why do you believe at this point anything — especially something centrally controlled — will work properly? Look around!

    • O.G. Hawkins October 11, 2021 at 5:32 pm #

      D,

      1) What’s the diff? Gmail is Sender, Receiver, CC or BCC on what? 80% of eMails? Idk. Pure guess.

      My point is: They can control the internet any which way they so choose. Gmail or Hotmail or proprietary truvinyl.tv, they are all monitored and will be ceased when/if deemed necessary.

      2) I’m not reading that here at all. I Believe most people have always understood the 2-way street of “Trading your hours for a handful of dimes” [James Douglas Morrison]. I Believe that mandated jabs is where push came to shove.

      3) It actually does make a bit more of a difference in British Parliamentary government than down in Dodge. I don’t waste my time with it but God bless GA & Slugger. Small actions are infinity times Better than no actions.

      I Believe that most people here at CFN see what’s what. Some are new. Some Believed for 2 decades that 2 commercial airplanes dropped 3 Manhattan skyscrapers 1 Tuesday.

      Acceptng that The True Powers That Be are engineering our genocide is a tough one. Right?

        Though the CFN crowd is more up-to-date than most it doesn’t mean my observations of the continued conformity to the corrupt culture shouldn’t be pointed out. As you say, “What’s the diff?”

        Why do you think the excuses you present make any difference to what I can actually read here? I don’t need your interpretation. I have my own. Relax.

        • GreenAlba October 12, 2021 at 9:10 am #

          Some of us just aren’t that techy – I couldn’t reel off any email provider names beyond blueyonder, Hotmail and gmail, because those are the ones I see (mine or my family’s). Also because these days just the sender’s name comes up, unless you click on it.

          Anyway, Nightowl’s brief reply with a couple of names I’ve never heard of is infinitely more useful than a condescending lecture.

          And I expect that, in line with what OG said, when push comes to shove, the NSA or MI5 can read my emails if they really want to, even if my email company is snowwhiteandthesevendwarves.com.

      • GreenAlba October 12, 2021 at 9:01 am #

        OG

        I think your last sentence is very true. It’s almost impossible to fathom for people, just because of their own basic decency.

        One of my WhatsApp people (old class mate from school) said, in response to my very limited comment about there being an agenda behind the vaxx passes, that she believes most people are good (I actually think that too, but our issue isn’t with most people) and that she always thinks positively to protect herself and her family.

        You are never going to get through to someone like that, and it’s not because they’re a bad person.

    • MaryQueen October 13, 2021 at 2:45 pm #

      Because gmail is still not censored. Nothing you do on the internet is private. I knew this 20 years ago, so I act accordingly, meaning, I am above board on everything I do. Of course, I would be that way anyway.

      I am young enough to have used computers since I was 19 and I’ve always known that what is sent over the internet never really dies.

  44. toktomi October 11, 2021 at 1:35 pm #

    You write, “news media, turns out, [are] as leaky as the mRNA vaccines”

    It appears that way, but “why”. It occurs to me that the AI algorithms could probably easily smear and scrub all that leakage across the entire net at billions of cycles per second.

    Perhaps, the first wave is intended to eliminate only the dumbest amongest and there is something to be achieved by leaving the more hidden logical tidbits for the curious.?.

      I would offer that even in the absence of human intent, industrial human society and the billions of souls on board were only a borrowed moment enabled by unimaginable supplies of extra energy.

      The economic and financial systems are exponentially growth based with a relatively short life span which began to die in the late 70’s long before the the energy supplies ceased exponential growth.

      The ruling elite are merely following their genetic imperative for survival.

      I suspect that they don’t envision that their longer term survival may be in just as much jeopardy as the masses. Earth tolerates a stone age creature but nothing more industrialized even in small numbers.

        I agree the population expansion of the past 200 yrs was mostly due to abundant cheap energy, which spilled over and made food production and distribution more productive.

        But the future may hold energy technologies and sources scarcely imagined today, which replace hydrocarbons. I know it sounds like believing in pulling a magic rabbit out of a hat. But I suspect much knowledge has been kept suppressed by TPTB.

        TikTok,

        Here’s the point:

        When the power goes out, one has no idea if this is “fretting a little power outage” versus “gonna lose your shit in a grid down.”

        You apply your outside knowledge to my situation yesterday and presume that you would know the difference while, of course, during a power outage, you’d have no more info than did I on whether this is a little power outage or a grid down. They look the same from a cold, dark house, dipshit.

        —–

        Man, I sure wish that I wouldn’t’ve had those fretful thoughts or, at the very least, not shared them with you.

        Oh yeah: Go fuck yourself.

          Never mind TikTok, you make a very good point OG. Unless you can communicate directly with the power company, you have no way of knowing whether this is a grid down situation or a little 30 minute blip. It is scary, and you have absolutely no way to know anything for sure because you have no power to obtain info from our traditional news sources.

          In this type of situation, best to hunker down and prepare for the worst, because you never know the true gravity of the situation you are faced with until you are stuck in the middle of it.

            The last two times my power went out, I went out and asked why.
            The first time it was two drunks arguing on their way back to their trailer. The female decided that the male would quit arguing if she went down on him, so she did.
            That is when he lost control of the car and hit the power pole.
            The second time it was a tree limb falling on the line.

          @OG

          Trust me, son, either temporary outage or grid down, it should make no difference unless one is so sucked up to the industrial nipple that you can feel the breath of the grim reaper on your face when they so much as pinch your umbilical cord.

          PS I’ve lived through so many surprise multi-hour to mult-day power outages in my life that I couldn’t help but try to interject a bit of “reality” into your panic attack. Cheer up and work on your survival skills and supplies.

            Gee, thanks Dad.

            I wasn’t panicking. I have Faith in God.

            I too have survived long power outages. I used to fire up a gas generator to power satelite dish reciver, TV, amp and watch NHL playoffs during a power outage in rural Ontario.

            You never survived a complete power grid outage. Nobody has. This is 2021, President Biden has promised us a “Dark Winter” and I was sharing my thought processes with my power outage yesterday as many other CFNers think of their own situations.

      That is how it started in South Africa.
      That is the blueprint.

      They started a trial balloon in 2008 by taking out the power in several states and Northern Mexico for several hours.
      The blame was on substation in Arizona.

    They’re coming for everything, and all at once.
    A multiple front engagement.
    Straight-on, flanks, and from behind.

    Next up, as Mr. Snowden asserts, cash.
    Money.
    Every transaction recorded. Scrutinized.
    If not now, when needed. Get the record.

    You’re too busy confronting election rigging, lockdowns, the vanquishing of free speech and/or an arena for civic engagement.
    The town square gone electronic.
    The town hall gone digital echo chamber.
    Then there’s the supply chain and the non-employment, and the mandates, and the passports.

    You done spinning yet?

    Well, they’re not done twirling you. Your blindfold is holding steady and the song is still playing.

      You are right, Bon. The assault is on multiple fronts.

      We had a region wide power outage in 2009.
      I have a wind-up radio, which I started cranking, but there was dead air everywhere, because the radio stations went down also.
      The stores all closed at first. No power meant their registers didn’t work. Eventually, Rural King opened during the day. The employees had flashlights and would accompany people to find what they wanted, and then they took cash for it.
      The gas pumps didn’t work.
      Most people just hunkered down and waited it out. Linemen came from all around the country. It was amazing.
      They got some power on within 3 days, but some people were without for 2 weeks.
      I understand that they want to take away cash. That requires constant electricity.
      So does the surveillance state, for that matter.
      How are they going to keep the power on?
