      In an interview with Fox News’s Bret Baier last Tuesday, FBI Director Chris Wray said, “The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan.” Like so much else in America’s tortured, distractible life these days, the meaning larded into that utterance went clear over the collective heads of just about everybody.

     What was the key part of that statement? “For quite some time now….” Gee, really? Like, how long? One year? More than that? Maybe since March 2020? And you didn’t say anything, Mr. FBI Director? You didn’t do a thing to dispel the Covid-19 miasma of confusion that swaddled Washington DC like a smallpox blanket of yore? The question of where the novel coronavirus came from has been a ferocious national controversy since late 2019, you understand. Several government agencies, including the CIA and all the offices under the gigantic National Institutes of Health (NIH) – including the NIAID run for decades by Dr. Anthony Fauci — plus the FDA and CDC, tucked into the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)… all of these outfits have pretended to not know the true origin of Covid-19 for over three years. And the FBI Director, who could have shed some authoritative light on the matter by stepping up to a podium and weighing in, just let all that chaos roll?

       And by-the-by, let’s not forget that the whole time Chris Wray knew with moderate certainty that Covid-19 came from the Wuhan virology lab, he was in charge of a battalion of FBI agents assigned to managing Twitter, Facebook, and Google — that is, the apps that comprise the digital Public Square — to make sure that anyone who opined about Covid coming from the Wuhan lab got censored, banished, cancelled, reputationally destroyed.

     So, why did Mr. Wray make this statement on Tuesday… “The FBI has for quite some time now assessed…” Probably we’re hearing the old Modified Limited Hangout strategy, a venerable ruse, which is when a criminally culpable government throws the public a bone of admission about something that is common knowledge anyway — the thing everybody knows — while pretending that they were in on the common knowledge all along — which just adds another layer of perfidy to the giant matrix of lies laid down by US agency officials in this disgraceful episode of US history.

        What Mr. Wray left out of his statement this week is any hint that a gang of US scientists and doctors under Dr. Fauci were directly and intimately involved in the activities at Wuhan that produced the virus that killed millions around the world, and led to the warp speed production of a “vaccine” mere weeks after the organism appeared — which will probably end up killing and maiming more people than the disease itself.

      It happened also this past week that a team of distinguished medical warriors including Drs. Martin Makary of Johns Hopkins, Martin Kulldorff of Harvard, and Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford testified before the opening session of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. Dr. Makary began his remarks stating boldly: “The greatest perpetrator of misinformation during the pandemic has been the United States government….”

…. Misinformation that…

  • Covid was spread through surface transmission
  • That vaccinated immunity was far greater than natural immunity
  • That masks were effective. Now we have the definitive Cochrane review. What do you do with that review? Cochrane is the most authoritative evidence body in all of medicine and has been for decades. Do you just ignore it and not talk about it?
  • That myocarditis was more common after the infection than after the vaccine. Not true, it is 4-28 times more common after the vaccine.
  • That young people benefit from a booster, misinformation. Our two top experts on vaccines quit the FDA in protest over this particular issue, pushing boosters in young, healthy people. The data was never there. That’s why the CDC never disclosed hospitalization rates among boosted Americans under the age of 50.
  • That vaccine mandates would increase vaccination rates. A George Mason University study shows that it didn’t. It did one thing, it created “Never-Vaxxers” who are now not getting the childhood vaccines they need to get.

     “Over and over again, we’ve seen something that goes far beyond using your best judgment with the information at hand. We’ve seen something that is unforgivable, and that is the weaponization of medical research itself. The CDC putting out their own shoddy studies, like their own study on natural immunity looking at one state for two months, when they had data for years on all 50 states. Why did they only report that one sliver of data? Why did the salami slice the entire database? Because it gave them the result they wanted.

     The same with the masking studies. The data has now caught up in giant systematic reviews, and public health officials were intellectually dishonest. They lied to the American people.”

     This week, Edward Dowd, the former BlackRock trader-turned-Covid-statistician — and author of the new book Cause Unknown — released preliminary fourth quarter 2022 “excess deaths” numbers for group life insurance death claims compiled by the International Society of Actuaries (SOA).

     For the age group up to age 44 excess deaths rose above the baseline (normal): 13 percent in October, 21 percent in November, and 43 percent in December. For the age group 45 to 64, the death rate above baseline rose 4 percent in October, 16 percent in November, and 35 percent in December. Mr. Dowd says that he is told the rates moving into the first quarter of 2023 are higher still. This is what’s known as a trend, and a pretty ominous one.

      It boils down to an awful lot of people in the prime of life dying off, and more every month. Nobody in any of the US public health agencies is talking about this. One very prominent official, Rochelle Walensky, head of the CDC, is still busy arranging to dispense more Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines to America’s school-children — the “vaccines” being the prime suspects causing those stunning excess death rates among the young and employed demographic. Nice work, Rochelle!

      How do the approximately 70 percent of vaxxed-up Americans deal with this reality? Many, of course, are noticing vaxxed family members, friends, colleagues, sports figures, acquaintances getting sick and dying of sudden heart failure, strokes, aggressive cancers, strange neurological problems, and other mystifying syndromes. The aggregate reaction so far seems to be a numb despair. But then, the still-living vaxxed also have to contend with the anxiety over what is going on in their own bodies. Perhaps they’ve heard whispers from the more extreme voices on the margins of this discussion that every single person who got vaxxed might be subject to an early death one way or another. That’d be a reason to withdraw into the first stage of the Kübler-Ross Transect of Grief, which is denial… and just hunker down there… for now. It’s an awful lot to contend with.

    What’s next then? Consider that around 30 percent of Americans are not vaxxed, and are free of the anxiety that they are designated goners — notwithstanding the basic limits of the human condition. That 30 percent of Americans, and perhaps even some of the 70 percent vaxxed, will possibly be concerned with the other enormous threats to our national life: the insane Ukraine project, which looks like the overture to World War Three (no thank you); and the collapsing US economy, with features such as unaffordable food and fuel, scarcity of parts for fixing anything that’s broken, and a pretty good chance that retirement accounts will be wiped out in a coming equity-and-bond market “correction.”

     All of which is to ask: when will the people of this land finally get pissed-off at the managers who are running everything? And when will the people start to express their new-found rage? I’ll make a wild-hair guess. By May, when the weather really starts lightening up, the people will be out in the streets looking to smash anything that appears to represent authority. Welcome to the season of real chaos and crisis, possibly many seasons, maybe years. Take great care of yourselves and your situations. Prepare if you can. How does it feel…to be on your own? the bard sang sixty years ago. We’ll soon find out.

        The egomaniacs in the mRNA R&D development group convinced DC that the Vaxx was not dangerous. Today, they are pushing hard to get the flu shot into a combination mRNA with Covid.

        Will anyone announce a flu shot change to mRNA, or polio, or measles, etc, etc?

      • Beryl of Oyl March 3, 2023 at 11:03 am #

        I don’t know why anybody trusted the CDC or any other “public health authorities” after the dress rehearsal where they decided that, “you know what? We need everybody to get a flu shot in order to achieve herd immunity.”\

        That right there was a big lie, which anybody who knows what herd immunity is, knew.

        Then there is the matter of referring to people as herd animals, which we are not.

        THEN they decided to force the shots on anybody who worked in a hospital, and tried coercive behavior such as forcing the non-compliant into useless face masks as punishment.

        This was actually very popular with some of the public, believe it or not.

        Nurses were winning cases against the mask, as it was well-known that it would prevent transmission of the flu even if a nurse had the flu.

        This was as late as 2015.

        Masks started to magically work in 2020.

            After the January 6th events in D.C. which ended up with thousands of Americans being rounded up by the FBI and questioned plus the hundreds who have been languishing in solitary confinement for over two years with no charges and no “speedy trials” and no evidence sharing, I don’t see average Americans doing squat because they fear losing their freedom, property, jobs and being canceled out of existence.

            Now that the truthful outcome of elections is in serious question even THAT avenue of protest has been handled. Not to mention the total stranglehold Congress and the DS has on candidates who seem inspiring but then get quickly sucked in to the system.

            AOC was all about Medicare for All and “creating a ruckus” until Nancy sat her down and read her “The Riot Act”.

            I figure it all comes down to power and money once a true Patriot lands in Congress. I guess every man and woman DOES have a price.

            Most Americans just don’t have the balls to confront the PTB. Life is short.

          I remember the mask punishment thing also.

          Part of Obamacare was to force every employee in health care to get an annual flu shot.

          Just like the forced tithing mandate, they rolled it out slowly.

          The actual “take it or you’re fired” part started in 2013, just like the “buy it or pay the IRS a fine” mandate.

          Before that they tried the “take the shot or wear a mask the entire shift”, which was insane and everyone knew it. Wear a mask for 8 or 12 hours? Are you frigging nuts?

          And now here we are. They have to take the flu shot AND the spike protein shot AND still wear masks the entire shift!

          The country has gone insane.

          • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 1:42 pm #

            In 2013 I got around it with a little help from my friends.
            In 2014 they had fixed that loophole and I had to take the shot. A month later I got sick with the worst flu of my life. Although I have only had the flu a few times in my life, that was the worst.

            In 2015 I flat out refused and they fired me.
            At lunch with my ex-co-workers last year I pointed out that I was ahead of my time, and they nodded in agreement. They all had to take the shot.

            One of my favorite ex-co-workers died last Wednesday and another one the week before and another one late last year.

            The Owners have judged their manipulation a success.

            (Or words and that policy in effect and affect.) That was the 1980s, FFS!

            Us: livin’ the duality dream. Holding opposing perceptions of reality as if not actually valid, then necessarily made viable in order to survive in the resultant conflicted society of ‘Usn’s and Them’uns.’
            The resultant mass neuroses afflicting western societies are self-evident.
            And the Owners gloat at the powerlessness their little ‘work’ has engendered. Cats playing with mice.

            ” The condition of alienation, of being asleep, of being unconscious, of being out of one’s mind, is the condition of the normal man.

            Society highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal.

            Normal men have killed perhaps 100,000,000 of their fellow normal men in the last 50 years. ”

            The way I remember it from 1990 CIA Director Casey saying …

            “Our mission will be complete when everything the USSA public believes is a LIE”

            Let’s see today, nobody can tell a man from woman ( new scotus ), a man can get pregnant

            war is peace
            ignorance is strength
            freedom is slavery

            I would say Casey is ‘mission completed’

            The funny thing that while EU/USSA/UK-commonwealth have gone bat-shit insane ( see above ), the Russia-China a man is a man, a woman is a woman; Gay bullshit in movies is banned, grooming is illegal, and tranny training will get you 5-7 in prison

            From a historical perspective if you know that ROCKEFELLER/ROTHSCHILD/GATES ( big banking to big oil to big-pharma to big computation ) created modern china&russian gov ( stalin&mao were rockefeller men ), then in reality all has the same ownership; All that is happening is WEST is being culled, hell even AFRICA didn’t get the ‘vax’; Russia/China got a trad vax; West goes nutz, and the rest the world lives a splendid life, while USSA streets are covered in feces and liberal parasites;

      • Anthea March 4, 2023 at 10:27 am #

        As a “never-vaxxer,” myself, I’ve felt especially vindicated to have made that choice for my own kids. Most childhood vaccinations are pointless. The incidence of diphtheria and pertussis had declined steeply before the vaccines were introduced, and (if I remember right) pertussis had declined in virulence. As for tetanus, very few adults stay current with their boosters. I don’t know anyone who’s had a tetanus shot since high school, yet there is not tetanus plague. Measles, mumps, rubella, and chicken pox are mild, self-limiting childhood diseases. They are itchy rashes (very itchy) or swollen glands. I had all of them as a child, as did everyone else, and know of no ill effects.

        My kids had chicken pox as children, and I found that it could be cured in 24-48 hours with echinacea. I don’t know if measles/mumps/rubella could be effectively treated with echinacea or some other simple home method, since my kids never got any of them, despite being unvaccinated.

        I used to worry about my kids not having been vaccinated for polio. This was because they spent their childhood and young adulthood swimming in rivers and lakes. But…no polio.

        I think unvaccinated kids are generally healthier, though I can’t prove it–and I’ve seen plenty of healthy vaccinated kids. I do think that autism is caused by vaccinations, and I suspect that there is a lot of undiagnosed autism around–that is, that because of near-universal vaccination, a high percentage of the population is made up of high-functioning autists.

        I think it would be good if people began to refuse all vaccines for their children.

    Lying to your face, and then turning around at some later date and saying something 180 degrees to the contrary, is SOP for psychopaths. Their delusions of grandeur convince them that they can get away with it and no one will call them out on it. And if anyone does call them out, their reaction is a torrent of abuse.
    Don’t ask me how I know all this……..something about the “School of Hard Knocks”.

    • Walter B March 3, 2023 at 9:29 am #

      Hard to believe that they can get away with this 180 degree turn, but then the American public HAS been softened up in oh so many ways in preparation. Yes the assisted genocide is going to be a real problem going forward and into the next shutdown, but this is no the only problem that we are being assaulted with.

      Yesterday the Redacted news feed on Rumble reported in depth on what appears to be the real agenda and the real danger in the Ukrainian debacle. Apparently, besides eliminating all opposition parties and conflicting religions and social groups, Little Napoleon, King of Ukraine is well underway in establishing his kingdom as the world’s first all digitalized nation, with vaccine passports and identification barcodes for all citizens on their cellphones along with the digitalization of all currency. The Ukrainians went as far as to present this all to the WEF at their last meeting and are now in the process of turning over all surveillance and control over to the US State Department, MSN, and Amazon who runs the servers.

      It may be time to get behind the Russians with great gusto for even if they too are part of bringing about the Schwabian Control State, King Zaleinsky appears to be a lot more dangerous, at least at this point in time.

        It has been said that the US/NATO are using the Ukraine as a testing ground for new weaponry.

        Why shouldn’t “weaponry” include all types of weaponry? We know they had the biolabs there.

        Why not also “civilian control” weaponry testing?

        The “Team Democracy” bench is not very deep in the Ukraine.

        Maybe Russian attacks on electricity infrastructure will put the kibosh on that. For a while, anyhow.

        The problem is that Russia also seems to be rolling out the same “civilian control” weaponry in Russia . . . .

          Zelensky has a kill list for civilians who question what he is doing. There is an official website. Journalists like Chris Hedges, Roger Waters, Scott Ritter are on it. Dugan’s daughter was on it with him and after her car exploded in Russia her face and profile had a big “X” through it.

          They even have a 13 year old Ukrainian girl on the list for being to anti-war mouthy.

          But does the U.S. State Department demand that list be taken down? Human rights and all. No.

            That’s a good point; In Ukraine if you speak out, your already dead;

            That’s why you only hear Woke Ukraine bullshit;

            The thing is in 1931 they killed ten’s of millions in Ukraine, so tit4tat purges are in their gene-pool; The gov forced all farmers to destroy their food, people starved to death; Parents sold their children as meat at the market; Totally covered up by MSM in 1931-1932, just like now;

            The fascinating thing is that the people who did the HOLOMODOR are now in power Adam-Schiff (CALIF) is a direct descendant of the Bolshevik Schiff family that ran all the genocide biz.

          This fellow was wiped out in 2015:

          “Oles Alekseevich Buzina (Ukrainian: ?????? ???????????? ???????, romanized: Oles Oleksiyovych Buzyna; 13 July 1969[1] – 16 April 2015) was a Ukrainian journalist and writer known for his criticism of Ukrainian politics and for the support of closer ties of Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia.

          He was found killed by a gunshot on 16 April 2015, near his residence in Kyiv. The murder case remains unsolved. . . . ”

          httpX://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oles_Buzina

          I remember it well–also the shock—because some of his writings were appearing at The Saker blog just at the time when a few people were starting to get a picture of what was really going down in the Ukraine and how it was related to the war in Syria. So, Buzina was someone whom I actually knew about.

          Then suddenly he was gunned down.

          On hindsight one can say that it was already clear what the stakes were in the Ukraine. Those who didn’t get with the Maidan program would be genocided or just simply shot in their homes.

        What are the odds, that the destruction of Ukraine is part of the WEF/2030 Sustainable Development where they “Build Back Better” a model country for the NWO to emulate throughout the world?

        To me, this might be plausible among the US & WEF crowd, but I find it difficult to believe that the likes of Putin and Xi would be in on it.

        Agreed. The people of America are sheep. WTF are we sending all this money to the ex cabaret dancer president and NOT using it on veterans, homeless, border control or health care in America? Yet the scumbags at CNN and the NY Slimes keep telling Americans we must carry the banner for world peace even it is fruitless, corrupt and friggin dangerous.
        If ‘our’ asshole in Chief can enter a treaty with The WHO that America will donate 20% of our health care supplies to distribute world wide so world equity on the health stage is led by the USA, why would we believe him on Ukraine and its importance to us?

      If you want to have a chance of reaching a fact-based understanding of realty in a world afloat with sophisticated means of mind control you must start with one basic principle. “Governments and their agencies lie all the time unless proven otherwise.”

      FBI Director Wray now tells us (three years later) that he has known for some time that COVID19 originated from a lab leak from the Level 4 laboratory in Wuhan China. So what is he lying about this time? What is the purpose of throwing the weight of whatever authority the FBI may still possess behind this interpretation?

      1- It fits neatly into the updated propaganda theme of painting China as the New Enemy.
      2- It helps divert attention from the inevitable shameful defeat in the US sponsored proxy war in the Ukraine.
      3- It helps bury the presence of US sponsored bio-warfare laboratories in Ukraine.

      The Alternative Hypothesis

      —SARS-CoV-2 is a bio-weapon created in a lab at Ft. Detrick Maryland.using gene splicing technology.
      —The goal was to exploit the higher percentage of ACII receptors in the Chinese racial genome.
      —It was first tested in a public setting in the fall of 2019, using college students as subjects.
      —The results showed it to be too weak for use as an effective bio-weapon, so Moderna (Bill Gates) and Pfizer were commissioned to produce a fake vaccine that would finish the job by creative mass reproductive failure and weakened natural immunity to all types of disease.
      —Chinese spies working as lab assistants stole vials of the fake virus and sent them to China. The CCP freaked out by the implications of the threat and responded with extreme measures such as forced lockdowns.
      —The Chinese created their own conventional vaccine which had the effect of circumventing the goal of the MRNA gene alteration clot shots, leaving the citizens of West to bear the brunt of their ruler’s satanic invention.

      • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 1:47 pm #

        Or maybe it is a limited hangout. More and more people are pointing to Fort Dietrick as the source of the bioweapon, so now they are telling us “Yeah, it’s a bioweapon, but it came from Wuhan”.

        That way the focus is off of Ft Dietrick. And it also feeds in nicely to the war propaganda drums now beating louder for China.

        Win/win, US version.

          • Anthea March 4, 2023 at 9:17 pm #

            @ Jarek:

            You have no business engaging in a romantic relationship with a woman unless you are seeking to marry her and form a family–in other words, only if you have honorable intentions, AND you are a fully adult male willing to assume adult responsibilities, including financial responsibilities.

            Love is not merely a sentiment. A person who does not provide for ones children can hardly claim to love them. Love must be demonstrated, and is chiefly demonstrated by working hard for the good of others and making the necessary expenditures to perform that good. Not to mention making great sacrifices for the good of others.

            A sexual relationship with a woman REQUIRES this level of commitment. Your role as a husband and father is to be the provider.

            You expect to have sex without responsibility. Women, quite rightly, expect you to assume a responsible, adult role. You “pay” (that is, you assume responsibility) because it is required of you as a matter of justice and honor. Providing for you family is an OBLIGATION.

            People who seek to evade or deny their obligations to others are bums.

            If it is your view that marriage places you under no obligations nor requires any responsibilities of you, you should not marry. And, as a matter of honor and justice, you should not seek to enjoy sexual relationships with women outside marriage.

          • Anthea March 5, 2023 at 9:57 am #

            @ Jarek:

            By “paying,” what you actually mean is assuming responsibility and taking on their just obligations–growing up, being adults.

    With only two other family members in my clan NOT vaccinated, I have been dreading the long-term effects of the vaccines visiting upon my kin. Well, it seems like that time may have come as a young, healthy family member is experiencing heart issues, and an older (but healthy family member) has come don with a rare cancer. Coincidence? Maybe.

    Will they listen to me with regards to treatments after all their mainstream doctor’s advice and treatments don’t work? Unfortunately I doubt it. The whole denial thing JHK mentions in the article.

    Perhaps they will get desperate enough to trust me. Hopefully before it is too late.

    • Socrates-Detroit March 3, 2023 at 10:28 am #

      It’s very sad. In the space of 11 days in February, TWO friends of mine perished. Both mRNA vaccinated, and I blame the shots.

      Person A, female, old friend from my old home 30-35 years ago. 69 years old, college athlete, remained fit (not a fitness zealot, but stayed in shape), set aside her career to raise three kids, divorce, returned to work as an occupational therapist. Needed vax to enter medical facilities to do her job (we fell out of touch, but I remember her as a kind and trusting soul, for all I know, she welcomed the chance to “protect herself and those near her”, she liked helping people, probably why she still worked at age 69). With NO prior history of anything and athletically built to the end, she simply disappeared. Eventually, police broke into her home, found her dead on the floor. No evidence of foul play.

      Person B, male, 58. Ex-smoker, ex-drinker, tendinitis, not obese, but smoking cessation added weight. SKEPTIC–even more than myself on some things. So we could speak candidly about vax. Our employer pushed, but didn’t mandate, shot. I told him, “NO way I’m taking it, let them fire me”. He said, “I see your point it may not work, but it might, and I don’t want COVID. If it was bad, they all wouldn’t promote it.” I was shocked THIS person would say this. This is 2021.

      2023. Late January: He told me he had developed narrowing of artery, that was new to me. He said “other issues are minor”. February: I learn he is in hospital. Cancer. Spoke with him. “..they’re giving me one year to live”. He passed 3 days later.

      This is anecdotal. I know vaxxed people who are doing fine (though they DID get COVID after the shot…).

      But it is criminal. And it comports with all the concerns and statistics that informed, objective people, including JHK, have been reporting.

      What I see happening is that the Republican Congress will use their majority status, to direct the blame at Democrats, for GOP political gain. And that’s it. NO ONE will be held accountable, no one will be executed or go to jail or even be fined. Legally, big pharma can’t be touched. And the Faucis of the world will use the legal system to obfuscate things and evade accountability.

      The Republicans after all, like the Democrats, all take money from the entities pushing the shots–big pharma, big capital.

      The only difference is that a few Republicans are principled–say 5-15%. If you look, you’ll see they are not in key positions. There are no principled Democrats.

      And that’s how the USS Titanic rolls.

      And for good measure, they (have been manipulated into) double down on this war with Russia, which will not end well for the world in general, and especially Europe, but also the US.

      And even as the USS Titanic is taking on water at an alarming rate, the government simultaneously doubling down on “green”.

      Today’s vax victims are a metaphor for US society’s infrastructure tomorrow, as our electric transmission grid continues its slow decline, and much worse, as generating moves to EXPENSIVE, UNRELIABLE wind and solar, and as the supply of newer internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles shrinks (and that supply comes with vaccine-like side effects in the outyears–carbon build-up from direct fuel injection, dead batteries and starters from ‘stop start’, more and earlier engine failures from turbos) and people will have to contend with no only expensive fuel, but scarce and hyper-priced “decent” ICE cars.

      Not a very positive perspective–at least not for this world, in this life.

      • mrs_saj March 3, 2023 at 10:55 am #

        Socrates-Detroit,

        I am very sorry to hear of your two friends. That is terrible and you have my sympathy. But something you said, stuck with me:

        I know vaxxed people who are doing fine (though they DID get COVID after the shot…).

        How do we know that some vaxxed people are doing fine? I’ve watched videos (see Died Suddenly documentary) where CCTV captures video of people on their way to work, at work, in the park, or wherever who spin around and then keel over dead. They aren’t in the hospital. They aren’t in the waiting room at their doctor’s office because they know something is wrong. They are going about their day when they keel over and die.

        I don’t think we can say that the vaxxinated are doing fine. Some of them may say so and may completely believe it. But these other folks, like athletes that suit up for a game or a match that they aren’t going to live through, thought they were fine. And they weren’t.

        Time will sort all of this out, of course. The excess death rates could start falling as we get further and further from people’s date of vaxxination. We’ll see. But the assumption that so many of the vaxxinated are fine, a view I once held, is losing its sway with me.

        • Jarek March 3, 2023 at 12:16 pm #

          There are probably batches that are just placebos. Or perhaps to really hide their trail, they used random number generation to vary the very batches themselves.

          Ultimately every one who gets jabbed will get a hot shot. But it will never be able to be proved, at least not in time to stop the 70% who jab from being dead men walking.

          Hopefully that number is coming down as people quietly wake up.

          • Rowdypiglet March 3, 2023 at 1:07 pm #

            While some people are developing problems almost immediately, or dying of “sudden” relatively soon after being vaxxed, I think it will take many years to see the full picture. It will show up eventually in actuarial tables. If everyone who has been vaxxed lives five or ten years less than they would otherwise be expected to, it will become apparent gradually, over a fairly long period of time.

          • Ron Anselmo March 3, 2023 at 1:20 pm #

            Deagel says the 2017 US population of 326MM will be 99MM by 2025 – a 70% reduction.

            Deagel has been in the business of providing “global intelligence” for many years.

            Rest assured that decisions – many more than one may realize – are being made based upon this number.

            And perhaps there are fast kill shots and slow kill shots. Or is it just people vary tremendously, both genetically and in lifestyle and of course age as well.

            Or both factors are in play: kill shot variation and human variation.

          • Ron Anselmo March 3, 2023 at 2:30 pm #

            You’re absolutely right Cactus Girl – it was the vax uptake target number we heard over & over & over, ad nauseum – 70%.

            Deagel’s projections were precedent obviously, so the genocide pushers were driving to the 70% number.

          • malthuss March 3, 2023 at 3:02 pm #

            is the death rate even across vaxed nations? rumor is Israelis in Israel got water shots.

          • Ron Anselmo March 3, 2023 at 11:40 pm #

            Malthuss – not sure about death or mortality rate for Israel, but FWIW, Deagel has Israel 2017 population at 8.3MM, and a projected 2025 population of 3.982MM – so a 52% reduction in population.

            The Deagel figures & population projections are very interesting across all 183 countries listed. Most are up or down a percentage point or two, which makes sense, but some are very wide-ranging to the downside. Very interesting.

        • Socrates-Detroit March 3, 2023 at 12:43 pm #

          The vaxxed I am referring to I know very well, and they appear they appear to be fine–for the time being. Completely unaffected. They both took the first two shots, and have told me (not to please ME, God forbid, lol) they will not take any more shots.

          I sense they are vax skeptics, but they are not going to give me the satisfaction of saying “yes, you were right!”

          That’s OK, I’d rather they take no more shots (and risks!).

          But, I am concerned about them. Where will they be healthwise in five or ten years? As Jarek noted, I hope they got placebo shots.

          I think placebo shots were, and are, very plausible. Plausible doesn’t mean it happened, of course. But given the real risks that Pfizer and Moderna KNEW ABOUT and CONCEALED, it’s possible they cranked a lot of placebos because the shots might be toxic beyond what was “acceptable”.

          Not only did they still make billions in profits, but more importantly for the PTB, the shots and COVID enabled the vaccine passes and passports, a big trial run for the PTB.

          You can bet, these vermin are working to “fix” the issues they came up against, for the next “crisis”.

          While the West is really the aggressor using Ukraine against Russia, as the US/West elite seek to subvert Russia in order to reinforce the West’s position against China, which together with Russia are a check on Western hegemony, and while this is ultimately a situation where, as they say in Greece, “you can’t have two heads wearing one hat”, in which the Western Elite seek world domination, and by implication, subordination of the China and China’s rulers to Western (WEF/Soros/Gates/Rockefeller/Clinton/Bush etc) control, both the Western Elite and the Chinese elite (aka the Chinese Communist Party) want complete control over the people, so they are both very invested in using COVID to control the masses in their spheres of control. And the UN and WHO faithfully parrot the line to “prepare for the next pandemic” toward that end.

          This is very big. God dealt with the Tower of Babel, and ultimately, He will step in and put an end to this, but it’s going to be a rough ride between now and then

          • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 1:59 pm #

            Two of my children got the shots as soon as they were available. (Yeah, I failed as a mother).

            Neither of them were affected at all, not even a sore arm. I’m hoping they got saline.
            It seems to me that our overlords could have reasoned that people who jumped at the opportunity to get the first shots would be easy marks later for the already planned ”boosters”, but not if young people started dropping dead in the spring of 2021, so the chances are good that they put out a bunch of saline shots so that the public would say “See? No problem”.

            My other child did not want the shot, but succumbed to the “You can’t go anywhere without a vax passport” in the fall of 2021. She got sick as a dog from the shot. So I think she actually got it.
            So far she seems OK though. Hopefully her body managed to shut down the spike protein factories in her cells.

          • Ron Anselmo March 3, 2023 at 2:41 pm #

            I mean simple.

            Glutathione is good for helping eliminate the spike proteins. Asparagus has the highest naturally occurring levels of glutathione, than any other food source.

            Puree fresh raw asparagus and have the kids take two teaspoons first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.

            She tells me “I take a multi-vit that has Vit D.”

            I tell her “Don’t take a multi-vit. They are worse than useless.”

            @ Paula D:

            Two of my children (out of six) got at least one vaccination. One of them got the first two (no boosters). The youngest was at first determined that she would not take the jab, but she’s living in the Portland area and finally succumbed to the lure of “getting her life back.” The oldest works in health care and was a respiratory therapist throughout 2020-2021, and the propaganda was relentless. In 2022, she found other employment (tired of being worked like a rented mule) and the spell was broken. She discouraged her son from getting jabbed.

            The other kids wouldn’t touch the stuff.

        • mrs_saj March 3, 2023 at 1:32 pm #

          Time will give us more data to analyze. Placebos mixed in with real “vaxxes” will complicate this analysis for sure. Some people die quite quickly after receiving a vaxxine, that is true. Others know that they are injured soon after receiving a vaxxine.

          And yet, the vast majority of folks say they feel fine after their shots.

          But here’s the thing: there are folks that I’m positive got a real clot shot and felt fine until the day they died. How do I know? I’ve watched them die suddenly on video because they happened to be somewhere near a surveillance camera at that moment. Maybe they were performing on stage, maybe they were commuting to work, maybe they were playing ultimate Frisbee in the park, whatever. I’ve seen a lot of these videos. And I can tell you where these people were NOT located. They were not in the hospital. They were not at their doctor’s office. Which tells me they felt well enough to be out and about living their lives.

          So when people brush off concerns about the vaxx with their, “But I’m fully vaxxed and boosted and I feel fine,” it doesn’t carry any weight with me.

          Many vaxxed people felt fine until they keeled over and died. That is the point I am trying (awkwardly) to make.

        We need a little snippet of good news to cheer us up as our “leaders” drive us ever closer to the finale of WWIII.

        You may recall as the “vaccines” were about to be released that there was a brief flurry of concern that the Phizer formulation is/was very sensitive to being stored at the proper below freezing temperature. Like it does with any uncomfortable fact, Pharma simply ignored the concern and it was soon steamrolled out of existence by “Warp Speed.

        Recent data disclosures show that the variations in the strength and composition of different batches are huge. So if you were lucky you may have gotten a weak batch in which the spike proteins had already died, and will escape the “adverse events” that are killing your friends.

      same boat, fren

      Still in the middle of it, the process of seeing how bad it’s going to get. (“it” here meaning excess mortality)

      Just how damaging were the shots? were some people lucky and not given hot ones?

      In any case there’s been a lot of excess deaths and health problems in my circle too. People still clinging on to their denial, but I think they all have to know, on some level.

      And then what, who is to pay? There’s literally millions of men with very little to lose, who would be willing to get some payback, but the question becomes who.

      At the end of the day, the people submitted and did it voluntarily. Obviously those who knowingly purveyed bad info, should be charged with genocide, but that doesn’t include the typical dipshit newscaster, or HR person, or even low level pols. As far as the higher up, say at the level of director and up, at all the pharmaceuticals?

      They absolutely have to be held to account, with charges of genocide, and that’s a capital crime.

        Suburban Elk,

        Check out howbadismybatch dot com. Yes, it’s a real website, though it’s clunky to use.

        You select which manufacturer you want to research and it gives you the data dump of the 5,000 most toxic batches, in order of toxicity. Then you search for the batch numbers you want. Some batches have a lot of adverse reactions and there are pages of batches you can scroll through that are all 0’s.

        My husband got two bad batches.

    DMITRY ORLOV, St. Petersburg, Russia

    was interviewed on the Kunstlercast recently. Very unique viewpoints to listen to, e.g. Solzynitsen was a fraud, the Sputnik vaccine was a dead-virus type with no serious side effects. Very refreshing interview.

    PARK YEONMI, a North Korean woman, recommended we arm ourselves in an interview with Michael Savage.

    • kidseyedoc March 3, 2023 at 10:45 am #

      Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea. Her memoir about the extreme privations endured daily by North Koreans, and her harrowing escape from North Korea, is a clarion call to all of us living in the West, regardless of where in the West we live and regardless of one’s political persuasion.

      Ms. Park’s extraordinary memoir is published by Penguin Random House: “In Order To Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom.”

      • DaveO907 March 3, 2023 at 11:20 am #

        Those ‘extreme privations’ came about because of the U.S./UN concerted bombing which left the majority of North Korea’s buildings and dams flattened—to the point there was nothing left to bomb. (Thx, Curtis LeMay.) That’s when the plague-infested fleas were said—are said—to have been attempted.
        The point being, there is much that is nuanced about the Korean conflict, beginning with the U.S. ordering Japanese troops to stay in control there and Viet Nam as well—until U.S./French/Brit troops could “officially liberate” and administer their government over the native denizens.

      • kidseyedoc March 3, 2023 at 11:52 am #

        Ms. Park has a more recent book published: While Time Remains: A North Korean Defector’s Search for Freedom in America.

        There is a recorded interview of Ms. Park on the blog for the Michael Savage Show. It begins about time mark 23:30 and continues for approximately a half hour.

      Orlov must be a disgruntled old Communist type. Putin reveres Solzhenitsyn.

    I found it interesting with Wray’s disclosure the absence of culpability directed at individuals. That lead me to believe this is a key maneuver to crown China, Xi, as the next boogieman. Fauci and his clan of merry men may not be included in any of this propaganda to demonize China.

    • Islander March 3, 2023 at 10:05 am #

      Which is ironic, or something, because Fauci and Co. are deeply complicit with China—I bet the Chinese have ton of dirt on them.

      If they chose to turn it over to the “responsible authorities” in the USA.

      Which the Chinese are clever enough to figure out: There are none.

      I’ll say it again: Dr. Peter Breggin pointed out early on that both Biden and Fauci were deeply compromised by their ties to powerful factions within China.

      “Look for more headlines about employers being unable to find staff, at any wage.”

      This.

      We know there are problems with how the way the numbers for employment are reported. The “big” numbers of layoffs at the “Tech” firms are likely fake to make it appear that we’ve got lots of unemployed folks.

      Why would we believe numbers from the “Tech” firms when we know they work hand-in-hand with government to lie to us?

      It wouldn’t be this way if things were “normal” but they apparently aren’t so they have to fake the numbers to make up for the deaths.

    I’m curious to see how Biden & his State Dept. react when it becomes obvious that Ukraine cannot win the war, something I suspect they have known all along. What will be the spin transmitted to their CNN & Wapo mouthpieces to mitigate the disaster for public dessimation? All along we’ve been assured Ukraine is winning. The possiblity exists we may see a formal surrender, like Paulus at Stalingrad. Putin may insist on it. $155 billion (so far) dumped down a rathole.

      Most likely they’ll just ignore it, probably launching an alternative WMD (Weapon of Mass Distraction) to take it’s place, such as the long-anticipated “pivot to China.” If Ukraine truly falls, China will no doubt be implicated as part of the reason why.

        Ukraine and Taiwan are both just fulcrum points that are going to drive the US down.

          Considering how the rest of the world has been held hostage by the $USD Ponzi scheme for so many decades now, I think the operative word in “… as our prestige of being the successful purveyor of Republican democracy goes straight down the toilet…” is already well advanced to ‘went straight down the toilet.’
          My statement is no way facetious nor hyperbolic.

          Outside of the Five Eyes countries, a near 75% of the world (countries and populations,) have gotten out as far as possible to this point—of the $USD. And it will continue.

          And not only that, a 500 + year paradigm of Western-controlled government, cultural, and economic systems are being repudiated, or at least modified substantially to fit the wherewithal of the East’s aspirations.
          It’s ongoing, and it is now inevitable. We are witnesses to a much bigger shift than we have allowed to nest in our consciousness up to this point.

        “The West’s refusal to consider peace negotiations until Russia withdraws from all of Ukraine appears self-defeating and risks a low-probability gambit. Should China commit to providing lethal aid to Russia, it could outproduce the current combined U.S. and NATO military-industrial capacity – potentially exhausting western nations’ resources and resulting in a non-negotiated culmination. – M.M.)”

        :Non-negotiated culmination”…what a great construct….

      • jgalt March 3, 2023 at 12:26 pm #

        The Minsk agreements were supposed to guarantee Russia no expansion of NATO, no membership to Ukraine, no offensive weapons on the Ukraine/Russia border, and other aspects that were deliberately ignored and breached by the U.S. and NATO. The 2014 coup was the brainchild of Victoria Nuland and our state department, with assistance of George Soros and others, which expelled an elected President who favored Russia, and installed one favoring the West, who immediately requested NATO membership. Even if there were “agreement capable counterparties”, the Russians have already been burned by the deliberate ignoring of the Minsk agreements, which Angela Merkle stated openly were only designed to give Ukraine time to build up their military with NATO help. No agreements are coming, only unconditional surrender, which our feckless leaders would start WWIII before agreeing to.

        • Islander March 3, 2023 at 3:13 pm #

          Just a small tweak re
          “which expelled an elected President who favored Russia, ”

          Russia offered Lukashenko/Ukraine a MUCH BETTER DEAL economic development package than the EU.
          Lukashenko is not an indiot.

          Right now I can’t regurgitate chapter and verse on the respective economic development deals, but basically it hinged on the amount of aid and the terms of repayment.

          There were enormous strings attached with the EU; very few, and favorable repayment terms with Russia. Russia has always treated its ex-republics and satellites very decently.

          Fer chrissakes Russia was giving Ukr a bigly discounted deal with oil and gas—which Ukr of course made a mess of by trying to grift the Russians for more. And Ukr also becoming a willing partner of the EU in screwing around with the gas market. And of course now we know that the Bidens were in on all the Ukr grift.

          Sorry for overly long “tweak.”
          But Lukashenko was not irrational or sentimental when he chose to accept the Russians’ package.

        • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 4:48 pm #

          Two tweaks:
          Minsk said nothing about NATO. It was an agreement between the Kiev regime and the Donetsk and Lugansk republics to hold negotiations on their autonomy.
          They didn’t want to be ruled by the nazis the US had placed into the Kiev government.

          And Lukashenko is the president of Belarus, who also faced a Color Revolution when he didn’t kowtow to the west, but who survived the attacks.

          It was Yanukovych who chose the Russian offer over the EU offer and had his country destroyed in return.

        Any part of Ukraine that is allowed to remain “neutral” and/or “independent” will just be a staging area for guerilla insurgence. Putin has to draw very strong lines, whether to divide Ukraine or if he takes all of it, on the border with a hostile Poland.

      PASSPORT issuance is a main duty of the State Department. They have no business insulting and pestering other nations and their duly elected (or not) leaders.

      WARNING to readers planning to travel abroad: it now takes 3 months to get a passport issued or renewed. It used to take 2 weeks. For an extra $60 you can get “rush” service and wait only 6 weeks. “Urgent” service takes 2 weeks and requires an in-person interview at a far-away passport agency office. Furthermore, the expiration date in a passport is misleading — you can’t get on an airline if they see your “valid” passport expires within 90 days.

      From what I can tell, both sides are locked into meat grinder trench warfare. The Russians are only able to make small gains at great cost. Hard to tell what the casualty rate is since neither side is forthcoming with that information.
      It doesn’t appear Ukraine is going to surrender anytime soon. I pray for peace and that those who could, make it happen. I think the warmongering US could end this rather quickly but don’t want to. Curses on them.

        What I have read at the Dreizin Report is that one of the problems is Ukr’s ability to pinpoint air defense against Russian planes, owing to electronics (Starlink?) they have gotten from the USA. The russians have to slog through trenches because sending planes overhead, to take ouit infrastructure, bridges, etc. is too risky for loss of planes and pilots

      I’ve worried from the get-go that the neocon cabal running this shitshow have had no qualms whatsoever in going nuclear. Even as Russia maintains a significant edge in nuke numbers and in tech supremacy. Starting with the lack of any viable conventional military and manufacturing logistics force to counteract a Russian buildup. And still not having such. And oh yeah, btw, China too….
      WITAF?

      Or were they and their generals just too drunk on hubris to ever consider that we, “the good guys,” could ever fail becuz White Hats?
      Even as parts for F-35s come from such “diverse”(ity) places like Saudi Arabia and wait for it…. China.

    So I read about Ed Dowd announcing the new SOA excess death numbers yesterday. I needed to figure out what SOA stood for. I ended up at SOA dot org. There was a video on the home page acknowledging the analysis done through “the COVID era” and informing the viewers that soa’s data comes from the cdc. I didn’t watch the whole thing.

    That video is gone today.

            I’m not sure what options the insurance companies have.

I guess I should add government bailout to the list, as you mentioned.

            Taking down that video at the same time as Ed Dowd’s announcement was weird though….

    Fifty years ago, what people are doing in the US now, trans, same sex, pedophilia, bestiality would be grounds for a diagnosis of mental illness, not glorified by a group of woke monsters.

    The penchant for lying, which is the core of the Democratic ethos, is also grounds for being classified nuts. Lastly, the APA has an official diagnosis for extraordinary narcissism, a basic requirement to hold most high offices.

    Is it any wonder that the US government acts like it is crazy, that is has no clue what it is doing, at a time when “smarts” are really needed to address today’s problems.

    Is it any wonder that the Deep State, Trump included, jumped on the Fauci, Birx bandwagon?

    Think about this, CFNers. Fauci was involved with the going’s on in Wuhan, when he got on the lectern the first time. He knew what had occurred, what Covid19 was capable of, what the sequence was that ended up being the vaccine. He also knew his ass was on the line being involved in the developed virus that escaped.

    More damning than anything is how he led the control freaks in DC when he knew better. He knew the s protein was going to make certain individuals overreact with their immune systems. He knew what the initial MDs were saying about Covid not being that dangerous and the Vaxx being more so and hid the truth.

    He knew. All we got from him was wash hands, clean surfaces, wear masks and isolation.

    This man deserves a jail sentence for allowing the CDC block the accomplishment of real R&D on the disease itself, real ameliorative treatments and care methodology to suppress the onset of a novel virus. I would bet that using respirators instead of close supportive care killed most of the folks that died. I remember that the lung secretions that drowned most of the deaths were turned into a gel making it impossible to get air in or allow the lungs to expand and contract. Did the respirators do that? We will probably never know. Along with this thought, did the reduced malevolence from alpha, delta then omicron result from closer supportive care rather than “Their O2sat is 85%, slap them on a ventilator. The bonuses paid to hospitals in 2020 for Covid diagnoses that died makes me wonder if a lot of people were killed for having a cold.

    Fauci is a monster and fits in very well with the cast of monsters that inhabited the WH in Jan. 2021.

    • Cankerpuss March 3, 2023 at 11:09 am #

      Yep, you are right, JohnAZ. The real kick in the balls is that few there be that care and nobody will do a damned thing about it. Fauci, meanwhile, will enjoy a lavish retirement pension until his death which cannot come too soon.

      • Rowdypiglet March 3, 2023 at 1:30 pm #

        @Cankerpuss, I think lots of people care. From where I sit, the problem is that we’ve been attacked on every possible front. Our children are being indoctrinated and mutilated, our words are censored, our jobs are threatened, our food is being poisoned and/or destroyed, our factories are burning, our infrastructure is in ruins, we’re being harvested to provide funds for Ukraine, we have no borders, our streets are unsafe . . . I could go on, but there’s no need.

        It’s overwhelming. Even if we had unlimited resources, I’m not sure what would need to be done to tackle all or even a few of these things. I wouldn’t know where to start, but I suspect that all of us would choose, from this list of outrages, those we find most threatening. We wouldn’t agree on what those things were, and we’d argue among ourselves as to where to spend our resources.

        I can’t see any way out of this except for the whole toxic mess to be leveled and rebuilt from scratch. That may happen without our doing anything to help it along, since the system is rotten through and through. It will be ugly, but it has gotten so bad that the end of it may be welcomed even so.

          @Rowdy, as usual your post is thought provoking and appreciated. I agree with you, especially the last paragraph. I too agree that this current system has become so rotten and decayed to the very core that it cannot be saved or resuscitated. It needs to come down and something new and more efficient risen from the rubble. Personally, I am sick of waiting and watching the grifters continue to lie and steal with out repercussion. As much as I dread what comes with a widespread systemic collapse I would welcome it.

          I’m starting to think that this mess is so bad that even God wouldn’t bother saving it choosing, instead, to let it collapse in upon itself.

      Anyone who didn’t (or hasn’t) read RFK jr’s “The Real Anthony Fauci”—out now for going on 2 years—has self-deprived and starved themselves of the facts about Fauci the mob boss monster. It’s ALL there. His business ties with Bill Gates alone are hugely evidentiary in exposing their amoral and psychopathic alliance.

      As if holding the mRNA patent on the vax a year before the modified, gene-tinkered corona virus was not totally out of step with how the Universe actually works. Fauci’s criminality goes way back, way back to his intentional and blithe mass poisoning of AIDS victims. He surely got away with that one.

      Stupefication has been Fauci’s and the Owners’ modus operandi throughout this latest and ongoing attack on the body politic. It’s still largely working too.

          I saw a presentation on public TV one late night by a Daniel Horowitz who gave a very credible argument for AIDS being an engineered virus. This was in the early 80s. I didn’t have cable yet and was flipping through the channels late one night and came across this show. I believe it was an engineered virus, It’s not like our government hadn’t intentionally poisoned the population with viruses or pathogens before.

          • Paula D March 4, 2023 at 6:55 pm #

            I think it was engineered also.

            And I lived in San Francisco in 1979 and the propaganda was overwhelming. They wanted gay men to get that shot.

            No internet, but it was on billboards and bus stops and in the buses.

            And then 2 years later, a new and unknown disease suddenly appeared in SF, LA, NY and Haiti.

            Cause that makes epidemiological sense.

            And then it spread to Brazil and Africa. Brazil and Africa?

            And then we got the Origin Story, the monkey in Africa who got eaten by a dude who then had sex with a flight attendant.

            Sure, dude.

      AZ: The Cov viral infection via its S glycoprotein (produced by the ‘vax’ BTW) causes damage to the lining of the alveoli in the lungs. Then when hit with positive pressure (PEEP) from a vent, the alveoli, en mass, burst and produce massive bleeding and inability to exchange O2 and CO2, i.e. death. I have been astounded that internists and pulmonologists that I trained with in residency (IM), and worked with for 30+ years, all of a sudden have forgotten basic pathophysiology. It’s almost like some kind of waking trance they’re in with an inability to see the obvious and an inability to discuss the issues without becoming hostile. I hate to think its simply a matter of money talks. Regardless, this is the sort of thing that has resulted in the loss all of my respect for 75% of people in medicine. The Rockefeller model of medicine has shown its authoritarian face behind the mask of intelligence.

      And, despite the obvious apocalyptic fallout from the ‘vaxx,’ there is no backdown from the ‘safe and effective’ stance and probably never will be.

        neurodoc,

        There was a doctor out in California, I believe, who was shouting to the rooftops about the misuse of ventilators in 2020. I don’t know what happened to him, but he said covid should be treated more like altitude sickness rather than respiratory failure.

        I remember feeling proud that General Motors was modifying some of their manufacturing lines to produce needed ventilators, not understanding that not only do ventilators require full time trained respiratory nurses to monitor their use, but also, they will blow out the lungs (as you describe) if used on patients who do not need them.

        And this week we learned that New York City has conducted a firesale for $200 Million of PPE (including lots of unused ventilators) for pennies on the dollar!

        Talk about mis-information….

        • Ron Anselmo March 3, 2023 at 2:04 pm #

          Yes Mrs. – $200MM US taxpayer dollars. Seems I’m in the wrong business, should have been a PPE manufacturer – $500K not a good ROI as a taxpayer. We are lost.

          I answered John before I saw your post, Mrs. saj. I think you are referring to the video I posted. Thank you, at least I know one person watched it.

          He was a doctor in NY City and he was working on a covid ward, and yes, he used the idea that the hypoxia the patients experienced was more like altitude sickness, not pneumonia.

          He had already noticed that the vents didn’t work, and this was before the media started pushing the “With enough vents everyone will live and it’s all Trump’s fault we don’t have enough” narrative that led to GM making more ventilators.

          What a farce.

          • mrs_saj March 5, 2023 at 9:07 am #

            That’s right! He was in NYC and that’s why he had that first hand experience before so many other docs that vents did not work! Thank you for clarifying, my recollection is never perfect.

            The vents weren’t the correct therapy in fact they were deadly when they were used. They required staffing that thankfully wasn’t available in large numbers. This probably saved lives. The hospitals (I mean taxpayers) payed full retail plus, to rush orders for vents. Many vents were never used. And they were sold, new and unused, for pennies on the dollar.

            We will repeat something like this cycle on the next go around. It’s lunacy.

            JHC Q – you may be on to something. Since the doctor was shouting to the rooftops – maybe he wasn’t censored or cancelled – it may have just been that no one heard him. Now if he was shouting from the rooftops – different story.

      There was already research done on treatments for SARS. In 2005, researchers at Fauci’s labs showed that hydroxychloroquine killed SARS cells in vitro.
      That is why when SARS 2 was released so many doctors started using it on their patients, and it was found to work..

      What was the response of Fauci and the rest of the paid killers?
      They outlawed the use of HCQ in the US and elsewhere.
      In France it had been an OTC drug. In January 20202 France made it prescription only.

      Mistake? Come on, man!
      That is a clear sign of malfeasance and worse.

      And we already know what caused the lung damage in severe Covid. It was the release of lung cytokines into the interstitial tissue that caused the hypoxia and death of so many.
      The ventilators didn’t cause the damage. The issue is that ventilators did not help ventilation, because the problem was not with the airways or the respiratory muscles, it was in the alveoli, and the vents could not force air exchange when the alveoli were smothered in leukocytes.

      This is not a medical mystery, John. I remember in March of 2020 watching a YouTube video of a doctor on a covid ward talking about his bafflement that the vents were not helping the patients.

      I even posted the video here recently, after I spent 20 minutes looking for it. I’m not inclined to look again, if it made no dent in the “bafflement” expressed as to the etiology and progression of the disease.

      • ThorsHammer March 4, 2023 at 9:44 pm #

        After his recent passing from a long battle with cancer I penned a obituary summary of the life work of Nobel prize nominee Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a pioneer proponent of the use of hydroxycloroquine in the treatment of Covid19. In his lifetime medical practice he treated approximately 10,000 patients, either directly in his clinic or remotely. He had a total of four!! fatalities attributable to Covid19 among his entire patient group!

        The Back Story

        By spring of 2020 I had become convinced that the official story of the exploding Pandemic was based upon fraudulent mis-use of data. The perfect Petri dish provided by the Diamond Princess cruise liner showed it to be orders of magnitude less dangerous than was being represented. And the “Gold Standard PCR test was being used to justify radical isolation, shutting down of entire economies, and oppression of children. Ignoring the fact that its Nobel Prize winning inventor loudly proclaimed that it is entirely useless for medical diagnosis.

        During these early days I came across an interview with Dr. Zelenko conducted by Trump’s advisor Rudy Giuliani. They discussed the positive results from his clinic and of a much larger scale clinical practice in France.. Giuliani returned to Washington and reported to Trump with his findings. Within three days it was purged from YouTube and from availability on my computer. My first experience with how effective medical censorship in the US had become.

        Within days of receiving the Giuliani report Trump was diagnosed with Covid19. He was in the midst of his intense campaign for the Presidency, but was never-the- less admitted to Walter Reed. We cannot know what the doctors from the Presidential hospital prescribed, but it would have only been logical that he took the Zelenko Protocol based upon Giuliani report.

        Within three days Trump was back on the campaign trail at full force.

    Yet in my lovely blue state, the denizens are still masking up, by choice. They are still requiring N95 masks to go contra dancing! They’re still only posting pro mask and vax stuff on local websites as well as warnings over the harms of Covid. The vax is still required for employment in some places. And there is zero mention of the increased number of deaths that aren’t due to Covid. If those ever come to light here they will dismiss them as suicides and overdoses or deaths due to delaying medical treatment. They will never admit they got it wrong and still are.

    • Jarek March 3, 2023 at 12:33 pm #

      And they are still making out with masks on, filming themselves giving masked kisses much sweeter than wine.

    • Hereward the Woke March 3, 2023 at 2:03 pm #

      Same here, Mountain Girl. The fact is that most of the vaxxed – and I am pleased this is so – are still absolutely alive and kicking. 40% increases in mortality sound like a lot, but in actual numbers, they aren’t when compared to the overall population. Most people are still blind to what is going on.

      • mrs_saj March 5, 2023 at 9:24 am #

        Hereward,

        Keep repeating that because it’s true.

        A 40% increase in all cause death rates is way beyond statistical significance. But it’s not noticeable to the average citizen.

        Unless you are a mortician, casket maker, life insurance actuary, or funeral home owner, you aren’t noticing the increased mortality.

      You do recognize that there is no cure for Mind Parasites? The 30% of the American and European public who have been permanently damaged and had their brain tissues deformed by MRNA instructions to manufacture spike proteins to counteract an extinct varietal of COVID are beyond hope. They should be isolated from civic society. Perhaps they can find a useful role hand picking cotton or raising non-GMO organic corn.

      Perhaps by saying nothing we could indicate liking. And when not liking, just, just say n. One key stroke. One mouse click.

      What is there to say? People like what they like and believe what they believe. As Dale Carnegie used to say, A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion sill.

    The lab leak and the Nord Stream explosion seem the two furin-cleavage sites to penetrating the clown world psyche.

    If one were able to have a pragmatic, patient conversation with another who is either misinformed and/or ignorant to these two global instances, surely some kind of awareness would emerge.

    Then, you have the person climb the ladder to this new level of understanding, and you explain, now everything you thought you knew changes, for you have to perceive it all with this new perspective.

    Now that you know our own government was involved but neglected to tell you, what else aren’t they telling you?

    Always makes me think of Johnny Rotten’s quote over the mic at the Sex Pistols last U.S. show, when he realized punk authenticity had been co-opted,

            And during his absence he “vacationed” in some city in Mexico whose main hospital is renowned for treating the condition he was rumored to have (Bell’s palsy or Guion Barre?). I think he got the real vaxx and had an immediate bad reaction to it. And he had some BS excuse for why his daughter hadn’t received the vaxx yet, she needed other shots first.

    Because the lab that it leaked from wasn’t in China. They knew that from the start and had a plan to stonewall that as long as they could. That’s the reason for Wray’s tell, “For quite some time now….”

    The establishment are now united behind the lab leak theory because the majority of Americans now believe that Wuhan was the source of the shenanigans anyway, so selling this lie will be child’s play.

        • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 3:17 pm #

          No, Jarek. Covid deaths in the summer of 2019 were diagnosed as “vaping deaths.”

          The ground glass x-rays in both ”vaping” and covid deaths are the giveaway.

          Diagnosing normal pneumonia:
          “Chest x-ray: An x-ray exam will allow your doctor to see your lungs, heart and blood vessels to help determine if you have pneumonia. When interpreting the x-ray, the radiologist will look for white spots in the lungs (called infiltrates) that identify an infection.” The patchy infiltrate will be identified by site in lungs, i.e. left lower lobe.

          Diagnosis vaping disease:
          “Electronic cigarette or vaping product use–associated lung injury most frequently presents with an acute lung injury pattern at CT, manifesting as multifocal ground-glass opacity and/or consolidation, typically multifocal and multilobar, possibly with subpleural sparing.”

          Diagnosing covid pneumonia:
          “Chest CT in COVID-19 pneumonia demonstrates bilateral, peripheral, and basal predominant ground-glass opacities (GGOs) and/or consolidation in nearly 85% of patients with superimposed irregular lines and interfaces; the imaging findings peak 9–13 days after infection.”

          • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 3:20 pm #

            That is, CTs showing the ground glass opacities.

            If you’ll remember, the way that China diagnosed covid in 2020 was through CT scans showing the distinctive ground glass appearance of the lungs.

            They didn’t do the PCR thing the US did.

          • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 3:22 pm #

            It is plausible (the lumping). Everything was called covid once the madness started.

    Another great essay, Jim, thank you. I would love to think that the public has learned something from all this but signs point to ignorance and delusion still abounding.

    However, can we find a tiny scintilla of hope in the result of the Chicago mayoral race? Lori Lightfoot, who ranted on camera against those citizens who refused the poison jab, was given the boot, bigly.

    Jimmie Dore played the video of her telling fellow citizens that they would be hunted down and prosecuted, even jailed, for not complying with the clotshot directives. How much do you want to bet she didn’t get the vaxx herself? Like Newscum, demanding people mask up, because he had a $3 million dollar contract with a Chinese mask company, then turns up at an intimate dinner with a public restaurant seated with 20 or so unmasked friends (and this was early on in the plandemic).

    I would love to see more people booting the WEF liars and the hypocrite assholes who had no problem threatening decent citizens out of their cushy jobs.

    I personally will not forget Sean Penn telling us we were no better than drunk drivers, Noam Chomsky saying we should be starved in concentration camps, and Howard Stern claiming we are garbage that should be jailed. I saved their public statements and I will not forget.

    These people created a fake pandemic and destroyed millions of lives. We cannot let them get away with it.

    I’m glad Chicago appears to at least still have some semblance of an election process for mayor, although I’m sure it’s compromised to some degree. That would tell you just how much Chicagoans detest Lightfoot.

    There was concern in Jimmie’s episode on this that now Chicago may usher in a real “law and order” rightwing type. Well, how is this any worse than Lightfoot? At least they might get some of the thugs off the street.

    It doesn’t get more police state authoritarian than telling the populace you’ll hunt them down and jail them. And she ran as a progressive lefty. This is one of many reasons I no longer think parties matter. It’s the individual issues and integrity of the political leader that is important.

      Just did a quick search and found that Sean Penn also compared refusing to be vaxxed to “waving a gun in somebody’s face.” He’s an absolute idiot. Of course it’s fitting that he would be the spokesgoon for the Ukraine war, in his fatigues and pink decorated camoflage hat.

      • Beryl of Oyl March 3, 2023 at 10:54 am #

        He’s a washed up drunken actor, searching for a job he can do, and not finding it.

        This is what he’s reduced to, and he doesn’t even know it.

      • Cankerpuss March 3, 2023 at 11:02 am #

        Yep, he’s an idiot but he gets the spotlight. Why does he get the spot light? Because he’s made millions of dollars pretending to be someone other than himself and in America, if you have millions of dollars you are endowed with knowledge from on high about everything under the sun. Because he gets the spotlight, millions believe every lie and opinion that exits his filthy mouth.

          People are responsible for their own thinking, regardless of education level, regardless of any so called expertise of the person that you are listening to or consulting. They are merely advisers. You can (for now) look up pro’s and con’s on just about any issue on the internet, they can’t censor it all. I automatically reject the appeal to fear, if you can’t convince me with logic or reason, my intuition kicks in and I give the appearance of listening but I’m now quietly placing that person on the list as suspect. When I ask questions, I expect answers. When I don’t get them or I get defensiveness or the attitude that you can’t question me, no biggie, I will just find someone who will answer them and leave that person and their advice alone. You don’t get to control my fear switch. Scared bitches aren’t leading me anywhere, I don’t care how many times you’ve been on TV, or how many letters you have behind your name.

          Sean Penn is not featured because he’s a celebrity, he’s featured because he spouts the Establishment narrative.

          Look what happened to Eric Clapton when he disclosed his vax injury. Look at how they treat Jimmy Dore.

          Look what they did to Gina Carrano.

          You can’t step out of line, no matter how famous you are. But keep in the lines and you get all kinds of press, even if you are a washed-up actor.

      Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Chicagoans still have to navigate the (April 4 ?) runoff between Vallas and Johnson. Then we’ll see. I’m not sure I agree with either, politically. But Johnson will not disavow “burn loot murder”. So there’s that.

    Let’s add to this list the fact that official agencies are all pretending that the disaster with its epicenter in East Palestine, Ohio, extending who-knows-how-far, presents no great concern to human inhabitants, while the wildlife in that region is observably dying.

    As always in today’s America, no-one is responsible, and no-one will be held accountable.

    Far be it from me so suggest that a team of vigilantes should hunt down the malefactors at the top of the Railroad food chain and administer harsh justice, but what less than that would make an impression, or inspire more responsible behavior on the part of US corporations?

      That fire was out a month ago. The gas cloud is long gone. Poison sure. Vinyl chloride boils off at -10 degrees F. You think that crap is still there? I live 150 miles away. I have a headache. Can I put my name down on the lawyers list? Sure I can. The more the merrier. Lasting effects? This train wreck is way overblown . just another distraction in the F-Uped news cycle. Fox is playing it to the hilt.

      • Zoltar March 3, 2023 at 11:38 am #

        That’s about the most confused statement I have ever seen.

        The effects of environmental toxins are cumulative. Some of these agents were ephemeral; others are long-term. Dioxins are in the latter category, and harmful dosages are similar to those for plutonium.

        Enjoy some with your breakfast cereal, Elmo.

            What about phosphene gas?

            Many predicted terrible long term effects for the 9/11 responders. They were right. I don’t think firemen were all that surprised. They see it in their ranks all the time. When I was in the chemo ward, I sometimes talked to a fireman.

            My long term prospects were excellent. His were not.

            It’s phosgene Vlad, Stuff is bad news.Any which was produced in the vinyl chloride burn is long dissipated. The worlds a big place. The dioxins are the concern . They tend to linger. You mentioned talking to firefighters. They’ll all tell you,as will I, inside a rippin’ house fire there is so much plastic and bullshit burning you don’t have a clue what is in there. After a good fire with an aggressive interior attack you can shower for days and still smell the smoke and chemicals coming off your body. It reeks. It’s in your skin, hair, and I’m sure organs. What are ya gonna do . Let the city burn down?. Chemicals , our friends. In the old days, it was, wood, wool, horsehair furniture padding and whatever.

Nothing. We can cry over spilt milk but we live in a chemical world. and there is not one little shit we can do about it. I don’t know where you live but in my area there is so much toxic shit traveling the highways and rails it will keep you up at night. I used to carry a DOT book with me and point out what was on the trucks to my wife as we drove the interstate. Drove her nuts. One thing that really pisses me off that we can do something about is the sonic testing off the Atlantic seaboard which is driving the baleen whales insane. Imagine your house blasted constantly by deafening sound so some green dipshit can put up a windmill.

          • Jarek March 3, 2023 at 1:05 pm #

            What are they testing for with that noise?

            Tucker’s had some people on about this who say that it is killing or disorienting the whales but no one talks about why they do it.

            They’re doing sonic seabed testing. I don’t know the figures but I would imagine those 600 foot windmill foundations would have to go pretty deep into the bedrock. That’s hurricane territory. Those whales are probably in excruciating pain.

    We see one after another of these major functionaries: Fauci; Wray; Garland etc, hauled before the highest ruling body in the land and get damningly grilled and then head offstage with their golden parachutes and no consequence. Why are they not dragged off in chains immediately? Why bother watching the public pageant anymore? The whole governing body is so obviously guilty of graft and corruption. Perhaps this is why they must get destroy Putin. He would have them in front of a firing squad within the hour.

      ________________________________________________

      You are completely correct my friend. That’s why me and my wife no longer watch them because even when they are caught lying, nothing happens to them. You can go on YouTube right now and watch everything from 3 minutes to 15 minute spots Ted Cruz really left and right I get certain people that they have caught lying up one side down the other and he says they’ve caught them and what do they have to say about themselves??? well, they always fall back on one of the other.

      A. That’s not in my purview. (if I hear that one again, it makes me wanna jump through the TV and strangle the bastard myself!!!!)

      B. I don’t understand what you mean. Over and over. With the look on her face to Ted Cruz or to Rand Paul / senator Josh Hawley that says with a glaringly FUCK-YOU Look on their face and what are you gonna do about it sport? what are you gonna do to us???

            You left out “Pay your taxes” among a few other things. The fact(s) is that was the most pragmatic and perhaps only course to take at the time. Those oligarchs had their fiefdoms-city states well established and lots of money and access to arms to make Russia a civil war hell in addition to the already CIA-bestirred Chechens. That said, a lot of U.S.-Euro-Brit ‘bidnessmen’ including spooks got rich alongside those Russian tycoons. Why Putin has *earned* eternal damnation among the plutocrats. And the hoi polloi suck it up as gospel because it’s all they’ve passively ever heard. Putin’s “riches” being the super denominator.

          Here in Boise, when people are robbed, they post: “I had my ford truck (or whatever item) stolen.”

          Like 9 out of 10 people write that way. Not “my ford truck was stolen” or “someone stole my ford truck.”

          Why would you have your own truck stolen? It’s just a figure of speech, I guess.

            You see many posts that are worded, “Went to the store,” or “Walked the dog.” Not, “I went to the store,” or “I walked the dog.”

            I think this is a subtle way of avoiding the ownership of your own words.

            Using memes to express your feelings is the same kind of thing, only more so. On Facebook, people often post a canned statement about how they are just going to be themselves, and they don’t care if anyone likes them. If they really meant this and had any courage at all, they’d say so themselves, in their own words; they would not require third-party attribution. Or, alternatively, they could just say what they mean, without fear or apology.

            These are the same people who did not speak up about masks, business closures, etc. I suspect they post memes on Facebook, when they could just as well tell their offending friends and relatives how they feel, to their faces–but they don’t.

          Anthea – I write as you describe above, but for a different reason. It’s a conscious effort. Years ago, I tried to concentrate on eliminating “I” in my writing & speech, as it seems to sound self-important. It requires creative ways of wording.

          I’ve challenged people to write or speak without using “I, me or my.” It’s a daunting task for them. A lot of self-absorbed people out there. That’s what we teach nowadays & our current culture reinforces it – It’s all about you!

      @ stelmosfire:

      I spent most of the day starting tomato seeds and potting up peppers, which I started about a month ago in those peat plugs that come in trays of 72. But I only have about 36 peppers: two or three kinds of sweet peppers and several kinds of poblanos. Also one “sweet habanero” from J.L. Hudson. (Sounds interesting.) I started a few tomatoes about a month ago, because I was worried about germination, so they need to be potted up. It looks like I’ll wind up with more than 80 lisianthus plants. A bunch of other flower seeds started a few days ago are already up. The onions, leeks, kale, cabbage, and collard seedlings are hardening off on the porch. We were hoping to get them in the ground, but we can’t till because of heavy rains.

      I also bought seeds for the Chinese Pink Celery. It’s all just too exciting!

Obviously, our “leadership” seems to have sold us out to China, and our military has been gutted. It looks like there will be a substantial die-off of our population–which has for many years become more and more debilitated by a poor diet, among other factors.

    Are people sincerely surprised?
    Let us reexamine Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks, particularly the troves of DNC emails that detailed the criminal, secretive, conspiratorial, unethical, and meddlesome machinations of Soros, Clinton Inc., Podesta (not even the code language and spirit dinner ridiculousness), Wasserman-Schulz, Biden, Obama, the Ukrainian plot, etc., etc.,

    The man is locked up in the Tower of London for life for pulling the curtain back on the criminal elite. Forgotten about.

    They are emboldened and in total control. There is simply no-need to hide and deny. The legions of expendable dumbasses populating this country will be easily distracted yet again.

      An excellent synopsis, @ Connie. TRVTH told.

  28. Cankerpuss March 3, 2023 at 10:50 am #

    Mr. Kunstler asked: “when will the people of this land finally get pissed-off at the managers who are running everything? And when will the people start to express their new-found rage?”

    He suggested by May. I disagree. Nothing is going to awaken the fat, decadent masses of America as long as they can still go to Burger King, buy a greasy meal, go home, sit on their huge asses and tune into the latest reality TV show, NFL game, night network news shows, The View or NBA game.

    After what they did to use during the Covid debacle? American idiots did nothing but what their Government Gods told them to do. I doubt the majority will ever awaken.

    Mr. Kunstler is dead on correct in that eventually people are going to awaken but we have gone far too long without having to sacrifice or “go without” anything that most people just don’t know what to do with themselves anymore.

    The majority knows the system is broken. They can feel that society is collapsing. We all sense it, deep down in our bowels where that “gut sense” exists. That’s why so many of us are on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds. That’s why Americans make themselves slaves to financial debt buying big homes that no family of 3 could possibly ever need. They spend their time and wealth trying to find happiness where it doesn’t exist. Most thinking people sense everything is wrong and that we weren’t meant to live this way by the Creator. But the system is so engrained into the psyche that people just don’t know how to get out of it. Because of this, the people won’t awaken until EVERYTHING HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM and they have NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE.

    Until then, it’ll be more of the same. Higher prices. Government getting bigger and more deadly. More idiots elected as “leaders.” More shame elections. More plandemics. Get used to it.

    Best,
    CP

      In total agreement. Have people ventured out of their comfort zones and witnessed what constitutes the majority of this country’s populace?

      Huge swaths of slobs just trying to get by, get high, and eke out a living next to those just trying to get rich, stay rich, keep the blinders on, eyes on the prize greed. In the middle we have a class of people so wedded to the restraints and chains of their middleclass values that they are entirely unable to think for themselves. Mixed in with them is a group of working class and middle class people who can sniff out bullshit better than a vulture can sniff out roadkill, but still dependent on the status quo to the extent of their livelihood (job, mortgage, retirement) but having no agency and no real seat at the table.

      • Cankerpuss March 3, 2023 at 11:24 am #

        Connie, you said: “Mixed in with them is a group of working class and middle class people who can sniff out bullshit better than a vulture can sniff out roadkill, but still dependent on the status quo to the extent of their livelihood (job, mortgage, retirement) but having no agency and no real seat at the table.”

        Love this. Couldn’t say it any better so I won’t try. I am one of the sorry souls that fall into this category. I have taken steps to prepare myself for what is coming. I live debt free. I have a substantial garden. However, I am still dependent upon this system for my existence. How so? In my state, it is water. I can grow a garden as long as the community continues draw and pump clean water into the water system. The water system is entirely dependent upon diesel fuel to run the well pumps. If diesel becomes unavailable or if they shut the water system down, I am dead or I become a wandering vagabond. My paid off house and paid for vehicles are worthless at that point. This is where “having no agency and no real seat at the table” causes me significant anxiety and pause.

        I often ask myself “how did I get so dependent upon a system that I didn’t ask for?” Because it is all there is, perhaps? I just don’t know anymore.

Most crops don’t last 3 days without water.

            Like the blind men and the elephant, they were partly right but totally wrong; One held ear, another leg; But nobody saw the entire elephant; So one feel’s a fan(ear), another feel’s a tree (leg);

            This is about the georgia-guidestones a population of 500M for the “West” ( UK/USSA commonwealth countrys & UK/EU) which will become a ‘human-zoo’.

            This is about the Yinon-Plan, aka Greater Israel from Belarus to Iran

            CBDC’s are just a means to and end, but not the end; For all practical purpose we already live in a world of digital-money; In China they no longer trade ‘paper or coin’ money, its all done with the smart-phone;
            Covid in ASIA ( continent east, west, south ) did something fascinating they shutdown ma&pop shops but kept open the big-box&micro-box fortune10 stores that only accept cashless transactions; Everybody went cashless during COVID, all the ATM’s went away;

            If you look how they’re playing the game the west is being disarmed and genocided;

            The east has already converted to online-money, social crediting is already there, if your no ‘good’ the door will not even open at the store so says the RFID tag on your mobile; Lot’s asian shops are self-serve self-scan, no need for employees, no fear of theft;

            The MSM hysterical Bullshit you enumerate climate, debt, sex choice is largely to drive the west population bat-shit crazy, IMHO its a done deal; In all of Asia women are women, men are men; LGBTQxyz is banned in movies & promotion;

            Russia&China got sputnik & sinovac real vax’s; West got mRNA; It’s all a done deal; The west will be happy to suicide once the shelves start going empty, and the elite need not fear that they be blamed because west collapse was caused by climate-change, pedos, tranny’s, & obese cheese-corn eating morons;

      @ Cankerpuss:

      If you think about it, the moral and ethical erosion of society has been going on for a very long time. We long ago accepted sexual promiscuity as not merely okay, but almost required. Pornography began to be acceptable–even celebrated–starting in the 50s or 60s.

      Back when I was in my thirties, one of my colleagues at work, who was in his late sixties, remarked that most modern advertising depicting women would have been considered pornography when he was young.

      One of the things that Nock complained about, back in the 20s and 30s, was that the chief economic impetus in the US was for people to “abandon the economic means at the earliest possible moment, and live by the political means.” In other words, most people were scheming for government money (stolen from their friends and neighbors), rather than intending to work for a living.

      Nock also remarked that the central idea of democracy was not so much “equal opportunity,” but the opportunity for equal access to the political means–getting a living from the government after it was stolen from others. You can see how this worldview would be corrosive of manners and morals.

      Mark Twain’s book “The Gilded Age” describes how this was already playing out in the 1800s.

      My point is that we’ve tolerated and even celebrated all kinds of crap for more than a century, and we’ve allowed it to get continually worse. Maybe it’s not so surprising that we now have drag queen story hour and all the rest. And maybe it’s not surprising that we now have a very large class of people who will do literally anything for money.

          Don’t be too smug in your attempt at cleverness Mr. Jarek.

          The FBI has done an about face on their lab leak stance, so what makes you so sure that they won’t (or a new director under a new DOJ under a new presidential regime) change their tune about the obvious entrapment of MAGA dummies at the Capitol?
          When they finally reveal the roles of Epps and the scaffolding megaphone man?

          You do realize that both the FBI and Homeland Security are prioritizing the identification and prosecution of so-called “separatists”? Separatists who are really Trump supporters, conservatives, political dissenters, and Americans resistant to the increased and overwhelming centralized force of our no longer “federal” system.

          Nothing like a little encouragement to get them out of the shadows. To get them to organize and call for the “overthrow” of the present system.

          What, you think MTG would never do something like that? You have once again placed your faith inn another tent revivalist politician? You did see what a caricature Cruz (is) or has become?

    The month of May aligns well with the prognostications of Martin Armstrong’s computer program Socrates. But it also aligns with the astrology.

    Remember astrology is an energy forecast not predictive.

    On March 7 Saturn moves into Pisces and it will be there wrapping up a 30 year cycle. My bet is the beginning of the end of the Clinton/Bush/Obama cabal.

    On March 23 Pluto enters Aquarius. It hasn’t been here since 1777. So expect the same flavor: independent, intelligent, unique, idealistic and creative.

    Our experience of Pluto in Capricorn – which began in 2008 – we have witnessed the destruction of governmental, financial, educational and medical institutional integrity. Gone. The idea of centralized power along with it.

    I said the “idea” which is the beginning. Might take some time but we aren’t going back.

    May is when Jupiter goes into Taurus. That is the sign of money, wealth, home comforts, and the throat. It is an earth sign. Unpredictable, rule-breaking, destructive Uranus is also hanging out there.* Jupiter amplifies and makes things bigger.

    My guess is the financial system will crater around then. Wealth and home-comforts will be in jeopardy. The reaction will be very vocal (throat) and amplified.

    Saturn will provide the motivation to clean up the mess over the next couple years. Pluto in Aquarius will give us a new way of seeing things and the motivation to work together while respecting individuality. See that 1777 vibe coming through.

    Armstrong predicts a traditional world war but my bet it is the people world-wide warring against their oppressors and the system.

    *earth changes are associated with Uranus in Taurus. Lots of earthquakes.

      Last night the sky was clear and presented a beautiful view of Jupiter close to Venus—is that “aligned with”?

      Mars was also very clearly visible.

      “On March 1st and 2nd, 2023, Venus and Jupiter will align in a spectacular conjunction: an astronomical event where the two brightest planets in Earth’s night sky will be separated by merely half-a-degree, or about half the width of your pinkie finger’s nail when you hold it at arm’s length. Easily visible in the post-sunset skies if you have a clear western horizon, ”

        Dreizin is a smart little boy, but also an obnoxious little boy who spends far too much time whining and pouting about Alexander Mercouris. He just can’t stay away from it. Even though it is due to Mercouris that Dreizin even has half of his viewers. Dreizin says that he wants to drive away “Mercouris groupies,” but I think he actually is in a “mine is longer than yours” contest with Mercouris.

        Now he wants to actually queer Mercouris’s audience on Mercouris and, literally, get those people to send money to him instead. I’d say half his own posts in his comments section reflect his obsession with dumping on Mercouris and encouraging others to do the same.

        An obnoxious little ingrate.

In other words, Pluto was at 27° Capricorn when the US was “born,” and Pluto returned to 27° Capricorn in January of this year. When a planet comes to its own place, it initiates a new cycle in matters pertaining to that planet, which in the case of Pluto is birth, death, sex, joint money (including corporate money and high finance and, of course, the currency), war–particularly nuclear war, nuclear power, and TPTB control systems.

      This is exactly what we’ve seen over this long transit. (It is effective over a period of years.) We’ve seen efforts to radically alter social views on matters of birth, death, sex, finance, and methods of control. We’re also seeing a decisive war being waged, which I think is related to all these matters. It’s a “New World Order” kind of thing–as it pertains to the US natal chart.

      Pluto will contact 27° again in September and October of 2023, and will make a station at that exact degree on October 11th. I would expect something very decisive to occur on or near that date.

      Transiting Mars also returns to its own place on March 6th and 7th (right about now). So we have another planet initiating a new cycle, as it pertains to both war and physical and mental energies, and the tendency to be assertive or aggressive. So this might indicate a forceful move by the US, as it pertains to the war in Ukraine–or somebody (maybe China). People can get hot-headed under Mars transits of this kind, and under Mars transits in general.

      Now, here’s another interesting point, re Saturn. Transiting Saturn in the US natal chart is below the Ascendant and in its fall. Has been for several years. This placement of Saturn is in what is called “the obscure sector.”

      When you see this placement of transiting Saturn in the chart of a private person, it means that they are in a relatively long period (about seven years) where they are having a rough time. It starts when Saturn contacts the Ascendant and ends when Saturn contacts the fourth house cusp and resumes an upward movement in the chart.

      Saturn contacted the US Ascendant in January of 2016. In an individual chart, Saturn’s contact with the Ascendant indicates a “loss of self.” The most essential underpinnings of life go kablooie, and the person must spend the next seven years “reinventing” themselves. I think we can see that this is what happened in 2016.

      Saturn will not contact the US fourth house cusp until February of 2026–at which point I suppose we can expect the US to start to get its act together. This is not necessarily a dramatic turning point. It often just shows a person getting their right foot firmly on the bottom rung of the ladder.

      Anyway, this seven-year “obscure sector” period is highly formative. We’ve seen TPTB attempt to reinvent the US along highly negative lines, but we also see that the good people are still here, and we may even be a majority. Our doings are also formative.

      I should also mention that this whole thing about the placement of transiting Saturn is kind of debatable, since there are (I think) about three versions of the US chart, based on three different speculative birth times. I don’t even remember why I chose the one with the Sagittarius Ascendant.

    When I use that phrase I am channeling the Cheerios Kid from the 1950s.

        • kiwi456 March 4, 2023 at 3:48 am #

          I saw many times growing up in So-Cal; You can’t surf here, your not a local;
          Local did not mean you didn’t live there, a ‘local’ was somebody in that particular group, aka ‘a gang’
          We joke in high-school there were jocks, surfers, wet-backs, and stoners

          All were really gangs, the jocks ruled the schools, the ‘surfers’ ruled the beach, and living there and owning a surfboard didn’t give you a ‘pass’
          Wetbacks of course ruled the streets where rolling waves of beaners would drive around looking for honkey’s to kick the shit out of,
          Of cou there was also nigger-town, but you didn’t go there unless you were a nigger;
          Growing up I did get bussed a year to an all black high-school, learned how to not hang out in the gym and never go into the bathroom, how I held my bowels that year I have no idea, but getting mugged in the bathroom was fatal.

          I body-surfed as a kid, so nobody really cared; Much of the concern was fucking around on a hard-board and everybody feared the newbie, seriously the solution was just to arrive 6am on a weekday and have that beach to yourself; Generally if you arrived on an afternoon at the beach, you didn’t get more than a few feet from your car before a ‘gang’ approached you and told you to get the fuck off their beach; I remember thinking why didn’t anybody call the cops, but the attitude was ‘fuck this beach’ and these people I don’t want to be near them.

          Yes, calif surfing and dreaming, was all just that, a dream that never existed; Going back to the same beaches in my late 20’s I was surprised to see all the women fat&ugly on the beaches

          Anti-Semitism? Never gave it a thought, most beach community’s were owned by the Jews, so its not surprising that their spawn owned the beach; I never gave Jews any consideration, dated a lot of Jew & Mormon girls and every one of their parents would say “You know you can never marry our daughter”, again never gave it any thought, I never had marriage in mind, all I knew is they screwed like bronco-bulls; I was blue-eyed & blond and un-circumcised, the forbidden fruit for these girls, same for the Mormons they were saving the magic underwear guys for marriage.

            Someone who lived there said the “season” is fairly short – the water is too cold most of the time unless you want to wear a wet suit. The Dream Merchants left that part out. And a wet suit isn’t part of the dream except for people into rubber – and the less said about them the better.

            In any case, be bitter if you want but don’t build castles out of it. The Warrior Band or Gang is the basis of all Civilization. In our advanced state (so called), many got left behind and so form gangs – the seeds of renewal!

            Our gangs will battle foreign gangs. Given the paltry state of White gangs, most of North America is going to be Hispanic unless the Chinese “gang” or Red Army decide to take it, perhaps flying the false flag of the UN.

    A forty or fifty percent increase in death rate makes no sounds in the media. The baseline U.S. death rate is about 0.85 percent per year, or about 2.8 million people per year. Increase that by fifty percent and it gets up to 4.2 million, for 1.28 percent.

    If you know or know of about 1000 people on average; friends, coworkers, relatives, old classmates, etc, about 9 per year will die on average in a baseline year. So if that goes up to 13 per year this year, do you notice? Not unless someone tells you about the numbers and trends. Is it a huge concern? Maybe not if most were elderly, but the deaths among the young should be.

    The chance of anyone being held accountable for the cause? Zero.

    Dimitri Orlov was a good resource to “determine” or guesstimate how the 4th Turning would play out going forward.

    A question I have now is whether the ship of state aka US.Gov has a functioning rudder.

    And if so, if there are any hands steering it somewhere…

    And if this is the case, a question if those steerings hands are foreign hands (international capital/communists?) or domestic hands? i.e. American people/elected officials.

      In this country, I see the elites as becoming ever more powerful as the Remnant dies off. They have been successful in every method of destroying the Remnant. Breaking up, towns, cities, neighborhoods, churches, etc. through “civil rights.” Enticing or forcing women into the workplace in order to destroy families. Tanking the manufacturing base so middle class wages have been plummeting for decades. Pushing abortion and birth control to limit family formation and births. Sending middle and lower class Patriots to die in pointless foreign wars. Demonizing and attacking Christians and Patriots at every turn to scare and demoralize them into falling in line. Importing tents of millions of foreign peasants and white collar workers to drive down wages and steal all of the decent jobs from native born Americans. Destroying the education system so kids learn nothing, are unable to compete with foreigners and end up hating their culture and ancestors. In collusion with drug companies, selling billions of doses of opiate painkillers which are declared non-addictive by government agencies, only to turn out to be the most addictive substances on earth. Then, when these are no longer tenable, simply opening the borders up and allowing China and Mexico to bring in train loads of fentanyl to finish the job. Allowing cheap, poisonous and addictive garbage to pass as “food” and then providing it in bulk to the masses. Creating a surveillance state that allows for zero privacy and would be the envy of Stalin. Using the full force of every alphabet soup agency in the country to harass, threaten and attack any thought or action that deviates from the official narrative. Lying about virtually every event that ever occurs, creating a moral panic and uncertainty which has paralyzed decent people. Creating a legal system that operates as “anarcho- tyranny” penalizing and ruthlessly scrutinizing productive citizens while supporting mass criminality among the thug classes. I haven’t even touched on COVID or stolen elections and I could go on for another month without running out of items.

    I coach my son’s baseball team. We have 11 eight and nine year-olds. Six months ago, one of the boys was hospitalized for several days with myocarditis and is now being monitored for heart ailments. He is short of breath all the time and might not be able to play this season. Two months ago, an assistant coach on the team and father of another player, dropped dead of a heart attack at 37. He was the most physically-fit dad that I know. He jogged and played sports all the time, but he and his wife had been panicked over COVID and were vaxxed and boosted to the maxx. Last week, a second player on my team experienced severe shortness of breath and congestion. He was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with the flu, then pneumonia. When he didn’t improve, the doctors started looking at his heart. As it turns out, he has significant heart damage and will need surgery. This is all just normal, right?

    This is not the first war the US has initiated whose utter barbarity has horrified the world. There was Vietnam, the first (and last) televised war, in which the brutality of the biggest military in the world stomping on peasants, their children, and their water buffalo, burning their huts, herding them into concentration camps, was beamed into homes to be witnessed on TV screens.

    That was a blow to US prestige, but yet somehow the US public relations and media hegemony managed to turn it around enough that it all comes as a New and Totally Unprecedented Shock, when this war, spread on Telegram and TikTok is shown to a new generation.

    “calling the Vietnam war a mistake is the fundamental equivalent of calling water wet or dirt dirty. . . . Let us not lose sight of what really happened. In this particular ‘mistake,’ at least 3 million people died, only 58,000 of whom were Americans. These 3 million people died crushed in the mud, riddled with shrapnel, hurled out of helicopters, impaled on sharpened bamboo, obliterated in carpets of explosives dropped from bombers flying so high they could only be heard and never seen; they died reduced to chunks by one or more land mines, finished off by a round through the temple or a bayonet through the throat, consumed by sizzling phosphorous, burned alive by jellied gasoline, strung up by their thumps, starved in cages, executed after watching their babies die, trapped on the barbed wire calling for their mothers. They died while trying to kill, they died while trying to kill no one, they died heroes, they died villains, they died at random, they died most often when someone who had no idea who they were killed them under the orders of who had even less idea than that.

    That’s the truth. Unvarnished. But such historical truth hurts to consider, for it reminds us that the belief in the U.S.A.’s good intentions is a delusion. The war against Vietnam was immoral, but even that word fails to grasp it. Pure evil is truer. And to consider that war on military terms alone, one must accept the fact the U.S. lost the war despite all its military technology.”

    From an essay commemorating the death of David Harris, who went to prison rather than participate in the mass murder of people who lived in grass huts. (Which were burned using Zippo lighters).

      Harold Pinter marveled at the power of the US to create reality.

      ”The United States supported and in many cases engendered every right wing military dictatorship in the world after the end of the Second World War. I refer to Indonesia, Greece, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Haiti, Turkey, the Philippines, Guatemala, El Salvador, and, of course, Chile. The horror the United States inflicted upon Chile in 1973 can never be purged and can never be forgiven.

      Hundreds of thousands of deaths took place throughout these countries. Did they take place? And are they in all cases attributable to US foreign policy? The answer is yes they did take place and they are attributable to American foreign policy. But you wouldn’t know it.

      It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.

      I put to you that the United States is without doubt the greatest show on the road. Brutal, indifferent, scornful and ruthless it may be but it is also very clever. As a salesman it is out on its own and its most saleable commodity is self love. It’s a winner.”

Unfortunately I am concerned that the toxic plume from the Ohio train derailment passed over the cabin so there is no peace in retreat from the city until questions about dioxin are answered.

    The masses may get mad, but most of them will do diddly-shit. They’re hopeful that things will go back to normal and don’t want to screw themselves by rising up. Also, their significant others probably yell threats into their ears, as in, “If you do anything, you’ll embarrass me, and if you do that, never come back here,”or “you’re only thinking of yourself if you try to fight them. You can’t win anyway, so why bother? Just keep your mouth shut.” The only people who are guaranteed to rise up are the Antifa types, the modern *sturmabteilung* of the American Left. Comforting, isn’t it?

      “The masses may get mad, but most of them will do diddly-shit.”

      Yes. My mother learned Latin in Catholic school 60 years ago. Very few study Latin or Greek these days. I was reading a while back that when Robert E. Lee and other classically-educated Southerners saw war-clouds on the horizon in the later 1850’s/early 1860’s, the first thing they did was go back and brush up on their Latin and Greek. Can you see now why “the Feds” were so intent on implementing the “West Point” system and destroying classical education?

    “FBI Director Chris Wray said, ‘The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan’.”

    So which of America’s State Media Networks was the first to then call this gentleman a wacky ‘Conspiracy Theorist!’ What? No one? What are they waiting for?

    While the most obvious ‘origin’ of the pandemic might be identified as some lab way off in the Far East… that would not be true. The true origin for this global atrocity is in the minds and the darkest corners of the lost souls of these deviants in lab coats who concoct this kind of garbage in the first place… and who keep on working to develop more and more of this crap. THAT is where the problem is.

    “The greatest perpetrator of misinformation during the pandemic has been the United States government….”

    The biggest industry left in America is the creation and manufacturing of… ‘misinformation’. What used to simply be called Lies. Or in street language, utter and complete bullshi…

    “We’ve seen something that is unforgivable, and that is the weaponization of medical research itself.”

    This follows their weaponizations of…

    The Media.
    Big Tech.
    The State Education System.
    The Banking and Finance Industry.
    The Military on the Home front.
    The National Football League.
    The Legal System.
    The Court System.
    The Prison System.
    The Energy Industry.
    Organized Religion.
    ‘Social Justice’ (?!) and Race Relations.
    Etc.

    And for The Perps… High Fives all around. And lots of bonuses in envelopes.

            Most people today are living out their lives in some kind of brain fog. They are barely aware of what is going on around them… and they pay attention to nothing except for their little box of magic dancing pixels in their hand. To borrow a term from the original Star Trek… that little magic box is an ‘Instrument of Obedience!’. The Box is Master, and the holder of the Box is the Slave. Even when they don’t think they are.

            People today care more about not losing their Magic Box than they care about losing their personal freedom… and their Country. In fact… you can have anything you want but, ‘Don’t Touch My Box Of Magic Dancing Pixels!’.

            People no longer think. They no longer reason. And for the most part, They just don’t care about anything important. They have surrendered their bodies to Big Pharma and the TSA… they have surrendered their children to State Wokeism. They have surrended their sense of Right-and-Wrong. They have severed their connection to things of the Spirit.

            They have surrendered to… Everything.

        We haven’t seen poison gas deployed on an European battlefield in quite some time; don’t count it out CFNers. What’s old might be new again. Think of the tons of stockpiled phosgene & mustard gas canisters in rusty old Soviet warehouses in forlorn Russian & Ukrainian cities, waiting to be put into action. Gas is an effective killer in trench warfare, and trench warfare is back. Nothing like an exploding artillery shell filled with sweet smelling mustard gas to make a young infantryman think twice before he “Goes over the top.” It depends how desperate the situation gets I suppose.

        • Paula D March 4, 2023 at 10:22 am #

          Actually, the Ukies film themselves mixing chemical weapons and there is at least one video of them dropping them on Russians.

          The one I saw showed the Russians dropping and writhing. One fell into the water and they say he drowned.

          Of course the OPCW remains unconcerned.

            Its remarkable that none of the combatant nations in WW2 resorted to gas, even nations in the most desperate straits; altho, Churchill commented in his book about the war years (actually 4 volumes) that if the Germans went thru with Operation Sea Lion, and German troops landed on British shores, that he was ready to deploy gas.

          • Paula D March 4, 2023 at 1:06 pm #

            As I understand it, the problem with gas is that the winds can change, so they came up with a treaty after WW1 outlawing poison gas.
            They weren’t going to use it anyway.

            Ukraine has solved that problem by dropping the gas from drones, while they are far away from any risk of wind reversals.

    I had a dream that the Chinese Army landed in D.C. They walked into Congress and the Whitehouse. They took all 535 Reps, Senators, and staffers, informed them that they were no longer useful idiots and well, eliminated all of them. The good news, the American people who do nothing, did nothing to protect them. The Chinese took all the money that they had sent to this cabal and laughed their way to the bank of China. Americans lined up for their social credit scores. If they got a good one, they could watch NASCAR. Training programs for making phones and TVs were offered to some people. Those who were stupid, and overweight were deemed as useless eaters and were dealt with accordingly! Think the dream can’t come true? Wake up folks, the world hates us.

        I don’t get how a TV performance is some sort of kompromat that can be used to blackmail Zelensky.

        Blackmail is only useful if you have secret evidence on someone. A TV performance doesn’t make it as “secret”. And there is nothing considered shameful today, at least by the media and Establishment.

        In the US, where men in dresses are feted and promoted, and a kleptomaniac with a puppy fetish is put in charge of a nuclear energy agency, what the hell could possibly be used for blackmail today?

        The president of the USA has been caught on camera sniffing and fondling multiple women and children.
        There are videos of Podesta abusing children.

        What the hell could be used for blackmail?

        • GreenAlba March 4, 2023 at 11:05 am #

          “what the hell could possibly be used for blackmail today?”

          I think it needs to be Epstein-network-level stuff. See Whitney Webb.

          Although Astrid Stuckelberger mentioned it in her early talk on the Planet Lockdown site. She said men would be put in a room with a minor and told that if they didn’t abuse the child, the child would be killed. The abuse is then filmed, and the coerced perpetrator becomes an asset. And so the world goes round … That Dutch banker-whistleblower whose name I forget, said the same thing, only worse. In addition, they pay people loadsamoney and threaten their families.

          I don’t know the details of the Podesta thing, only what I’ve read on here. But I presume it depends on who wants who ‘exposed’. If the PTB don’t want you exposed to a wide audience, the MSM will not expose you, and the fact-checkers will fact-check away the internet allegations.

          • Paula D March 4, 2023 at 12:55 pm #

            You nailed it. No matter what utter depravity you are engaged in, if TPTB want you, you are golden.

            On the other hand, if they want you gone, you are called a “rapist” for not using a condom, (Julian Assange), or a “pedophile” for computer sex (Scott Ritter).

            John Podesta and Hilary Clinton are two people who I believe can credibly be accused of utter depravity and child murder, but they are both paraded in front of the public as fine, upstanding, patriotic citizens, worthy of much tax money funneled to them.

        • MaryQueen March 4, 2023 at 11:37 am #

          I see that Z’s public stuff shows he probably has a closet-full that can’t be shown on TV. Stuff from a private collection.

          Being in a film like that (or those, since there are more than 1) shows the world he was in.

          And we now know that no one gets into office without the blackmail & coercion videos. No one.

          I am guessing it’s pedophilia, or sick rituals where someone ends up dead, going by the testimonies of so many formerly trafficked people.

          • MaryQueen March 4, 2023 at 11:42 am #

            I will add: Paula’s point that this stuff is now normalized to the point where it’s either “cool” or accepted way to behave in public still on some level pretends to vilify pedophilia, but the satanic ritual thing is being pushed for a reason. It’s also being normalized. They are rushing to normalize everything they do in secret, because they know at some point it’s coming out.

            They are pretty sloppy about it though, but I suppose we are entering the phase (referenced by a comment above) where they believe they’ve won so they don’t really care what comes out.

            I have no doubt that if Z were shown sacrificing a baby it would still be accepted by the Woke Jacobins.

            Like Paula says, they already accept Biden’s obvious pedophilia, and his son’s depravity.

          • Paula D March 4, 2023 at 1:01 pm #

            I agree with you4 normalization point, Mary, and for sure they are upping the ante with the satanic rituals as part of normal group gatherings, whether at the Grammy’s or the Super Bowl.

            Add to that Spain’s legalization of bestiality, unless the animal requires vet care after the assault.

            And Z is sacrificing hundreds of thousands of his citizens at the behest of the US/NATO, and he is celebrated for it.

          Paula, I think GA’s implication (my understanding) is that these types of public performances are probably the tip of the iceberg of what someone like Zelensky has been up to, and privy to.

          Interesting series by Johnny Vedmore at Unlimited Hangout on the sordid and intel-soaked and very dangerous world of the night club scene in London in the 1950s an d early’ 60s. “intersectionality” of spies, sexual blackmail, drugs, the meeting of the underworld and the overworld.

          I can imagine relevance to the Kiev scene—think Bidens and other creepy oligarchs gathering in one place to have fun and make illicit deals. We already know some of Hunter’s proclivities. And we know some of Volodomir’s possible “services” combining sex, drugs, money, and “statecraft.”.

    In his excellent book, “The Crash Course” (Revised edition), Chris Martenson draws a distinction between “Problems”, which lend themselves to “Solutions”, and “Predicaments”, which cannot be solved, but only managed for better Outcomes. What Outcome is the US federal government seeking by managing all of the current ClusterFuck Predicaments by lying about literally everything?

    An abundance of Energy flowing into an Open System results in progressively greater organisation and complexity in the System. Contrariwise, Entropy and Energy leaving the System results in progressively greater disorganisation and collapse.

    Because of the phenomenon of Exponential Growth (or decay) the Growth or the Collapse of a System would like progress at first very slowly and, perhaps, imperceptibly, and then quickly mushroom before anyone can react.

      What Outcome is the US federal government seeking by managing all of the current ClusterFuck Predicaments by lying about literally everything?

      Easy. Maintaining power. When failing governments (like our own) can do absolutely nothing else, they resort to doing the only they can possibly still do. Try to maintain power by whatever means necessary, almost always involving lying about everything. Failure becomes unthinkable, so “all other options are on the table.” Funny how often we hear that phrase now, eh?

      The exponential growth comment reminds me of the old story that Albert Bartlett (among many others) used to tell about the stadium filling up with water one drop per minute for the first minute, but doubled every minute thereafter, to illustrate the power of the exponential function. Hint: it takes less than an hour, with a shockingly short response time from “oh shit!” to “too late!”

    Speaking of bioweapons released on the public, does anyone remember the anthrax shipped through the mail after 9-11?

    It caused mass hysteria, much more than the twin towers did.

    We had people coming to the ER every time they saw a white powder.
    Finally one woman came in with a story that sounded more plausible, so another nurse (the one that died last week) and I went by the book.

    We set up the decontamination shower outside, had her strip and bagged her clothes, then after she showered put her in a room with negative air flow.
    Then we called the cops to have them come and pick up the powder to have it analyzed. They said they didn’t do that, call the FBI.

    So we called the FBI and they were completely uninterested. They told us to call the police.

    Remember, the story being told at the time is that Iraq was shipping a bioweapon through the US mail and killing Americans.
    But the FBI was not interested and refused to have anything to do with the case.
    Hmmmmm.

    BUT a month later, when the US invaded Afghanistan, a co-worker’s FBI husband was shipped over to Afghanistan to “investigate”.
    Investigate what? She was unclear. When I pointed out that “Federal” was not “International” everyone screamed at me.
    “We were attacked!!!!”

    Yeah, so? We were attacked with anthrax also, and the FBI didn’t give a shit about that.

    Instead of passing a law to shut down the bioweapon labs, Congress used the anthrax attacks to pass the law that created the “Emergency Use Authorization” status that they used to push the untested GMO clot shots on the US public.

    And they got away with all of it.

    • Paula D March 3, 2023 at 8:15 pm #

      I have a fb friend who went to the Jan. 6th rally in Washington, DC.
      Her sister-in-law called the FBI and told them, so agents showed up at her house in Washington state to question her.

      The same FBI that didn’t give a shit about people potentially being exposed to anthrax was able to send two agents to a woman’s house 3,000 miles from Wash, DC, to question her on her attendance at a fair election rally.

        I like how you connect the dots, Paula.

        All of that is insane. I remember the anthrax scares. Although for some reason, I didn’t buy in or worry much about it. Same with ebola.

        I guess once I figured out 9/11 was a false flag I realized that they are attacking their own people.

        Waco didn’t help in that regard, either.

          “The four-track collection centers around the theme of the Branch Davidian religious sect and their Waco retreat. The title of the EP refers to a vocoder-processed and slowed voice sample used on the third track, which repeats ‘come out and live in a religious community in a beautiful place out in the country.’ This line was spoken by Amo Bishop Roden after whom the second track is named, in an interview for the Mysteries, Magic & Miracles TV series. Amo Bishop Roden, the widow of David Koresh rival George Roden, reoccupied the Waco site after its destruction, sleeping in a ditch near the property until federal authorities who had been keeping her away finally abandoned it.” ~ Wikipedia

Although no historical evidence exists to confirm Plymouth Rock as the Pilgrims’ actual steppingstone to the New World, the boulder was identified as this spot in 1741, 121 years after the arrival of the Mayflower.”

          “In 1774, the rock broke in half during an attempt to haul it to Town Square in Plymouth. One portion remained in Town Square and was moved to Pilgrim Hall Museum in 1834. It was rejoined with the other portion of the rock, which was still at its original site on the shore of Plymouth Harbor, in 1880. The date 1620 was inscribed at that time. The rock is now ensconced beneath a granite canopy.”

            Land is falling in parts of the UK. The north (Scotland) is rising by minuscule amounts, with the south-east sinking (again, by minuscule amounts) as a result of the slow bounce-back following compression during the last Ice Age.

            You neglected to mention the shoreline was rebuilt in the 1920s. At that time the rock was removed and warehoused to be replaced at water level after the shoreline was sculpted.

            At high tides the rock is under water. I’ll guess more than it was in the 1920’s.

            In the story of the future I am writing, land at the South Pole is not yet green because ice took so long to melt. Some trees on the Southern Ocean coast of Antarctica are a few hundred years old because land became exposed quickly,

            Not desperate. I figured mountains near the pole would stay barren rock longer yesterday.

            I do mess around with modeling. I asked chatGPT where to get weather data and generate Javascript to read the data. I might make a heat wave predictor that shows when the equator becomes impassible.

            Wet bulb temps already get close to the fatal limit at the equator. Neglecting feedback, warming is linearly related to CO2 concentration for small changes in concentration. Anybody who fucks around with modeling knows what I am talking about. Piecewise linear.

            CO2 concentration by itself can make the equator uninhabitable. It is a simple calculation. CO2 concentration increases faster than it ever has. China has the same middle class population as America now. That has something to do with the acceleration in concentration don’t you think?

            Even four degrees of warming can be considered a small change since 32 degrees C is 305.15 degrees above absolute zero. I have messed around with the math b4. Global warming is indeed happening in lockstep with CO2 concentration.

            Meaning in a few years parts of the equator will become uninhabitable with certainty. It is not a matter of speculation.

            What happens at any one spot is a crap shoot of weather patterns. But somewhere heat will make real estate worthless.

            +++++++++++

            Both of these comments are silly.

            1. Doesn’t matter what you supposedly can “see” 100 feet away. It matters more, what you can see if you get close to a bridge or something where actual historic high-water levels are indicated. One sea rise argument is that the rise is shown in the underground seeping of seawater into fresh water. I don’t know where that is being measured. Another sea rise argument is that the rise is shown in “extreme” weather events, not routine ones. Such as storm surges being worse, etc. But the actual data do not seem to support this contention.

            2. A ridiculous statement. The sea-level rise argument would be based not on the size of swings but on the level of the highest flood tides—are they getting higher. I don’t know that there are data supporting this. I don’t see any difference here but I am not taking scientific measurements. It’s true that a WW2 bunker that used to be in the dunes in the 1950s is now far out in the water. But there are other forces affecting south shore beaches than supposed sea level rise. The whole sandy coastline is dynamic. See graphic:

            Ok, fine, I’ll wade into this sea level rise thing here…

            (Mind the jellyfish!)

            But first, some background…

            Some years ago, on Peak Oil Barrel, someone– Javier– who seemed to know a fair bit about climate or modeling or something like that, used to argue with many about climate change and how or why it’s not happening, or not happening in the way that is predicted, or not anthropogenic and/or somethings to that effect.

            Now, my position I took then and still take today is that I don’t know, but global-industrial civilization, at least as it is, appears to be killing the planet’s ecosystem(s) (it’s carrying capacity– looks over toward NightOwl), so whatever can change it or slow it down sufficiently, or stop it seems worth considering.

            I even posted a comic that has a guy in it saying something like, “But what if it’s a hoax and we create a better world for nothing?” That was my position in a nutshell.

            Anyway, during the course of Javier’s arguments mainly with those who knew enough to take the arguments on, I came up in part with the point of how the change in water’s state from a solid to a liquid can be relatively immediate; from just before 0C to just after and it’s a liquid.

            Now of course it takes a lot of ice a lot of time to melt, but the hotter a planet gets, the faster the ice melts and there may be some tipping points along the way that we may be unaware of or at least less appreciative of…

            It’s like Albert Bartlett’s popularized point about the exponential function.

            That said, while I’m sitting on the fence, let’s say my feet are dangling on K-Chien’s side, all the while that Keeling Curve keeps going up.

            Reality can have a nasty habit of upending itself overnight– and all of us like ants in a mudslide along with it.

            Feelin’ lucky?

            One more thing is that the minimization of this anthropomorphic climate-change/global-warming issue (to say nothing of other nasty anthropomorphic effects on Mother Earth) might help play into the hands of the likes of the WEF in their possible attempts to keep this civilizational monster machine going a little longer in order to complete their questionable agendas for it and by implication, for us.

            Careful what you wish for.

        Re Plymouth Rock,

        Today storm surge combined with high tide (close to spring tide; full moon is in three days) flooded out a local intersection. I plowed on through in my ’96 Outback to get to my class.

        Lady at class observes: “Now, the water along Beach Road is always high!” [[eek wah wah sea level rise]]

        Me: “No, it is not. It is exactly the same as always. I walk there just about every day. [True]The breakwaters are exposed at low tide and covered with water at high tide.”

      The hund once again barks furiously at the base of the wrong tree. Here’s some fresh weather news copy pasted in from a climate site. Those ice shelves aren’t going anywhere and are growing as we argue on CFN.

      “Past Four Months On Antarctica Were Second Coldest Nov-Feb On Record

      Following Monday’s -58.1C (-72.6F) –the lowest global temperature in February 2023, usurping the historically frigid -57.9C (-72.2F) logged at Oymyakon, Siberia earlier in the month– the Dome Fuji Base, Antarctica dropped even lower on Tuesday, posting a very frigid -60.2C (-76.4F) — the Southern Hemisphere’s first sub -60C of 2023.

      More impressively, February at the South Pole Station averaged -41.1C (-42F), which is -0.7C below the multidecadal baseline.

      This makes the past four months the second coldest Nov – Feb on record (-35.6C/-32.1F) after 1999-2000 (-36.6C/-33.9F).”

        I’ve heard that some of the effects of ‘anthropogenic climate change theory’ are wilder fluctuations of all sorts. Droughts, temperatures, forest fires, deluges, hurricanes and so on.

        At the same time, we have to ask ourselves how we’re living on this planet, the only home we have in the deadness/deadliness of outerspace– and how casual we want to be about it and/or if or how much we want to play ‘Large-Scale SocioGeoPolitiTechno Russian Roulette’ with our lives on it.

      Like the weather, tomorrow will be same-same as today;
      In the future James will release a book “COVID”, no doubt;

      JHK seems to have tapped the ‘fear-porn’ industry decades ago, I have been following this blog and reading his books forever;

      Don’t see an end of the world this time, or tomorrow; Like always team-death has 1,000’s of fresh faces to replace the old that need to be replaced; Just like Orlov say’s a good indication of a sick dying society is when the old don’t relinquish power to young;

      Most of the old farts that caused all of our modern problems will be gone in say +5 years, and the MIC/MSM/MED mafia can bring out fresh faces with fresh hope;

      Lastly the reset is ONLY about one thing; In the west $2 quadrillion USD of derivative insurance policy ( so called financial derivatives ) has been written which is how they can play stock-market at 100x of world GDP; When the financial system implodes ‘owners’ cannot make good on the insurance claims, ergo all policy holders MUST DIE; So just like magic the West will be genocided and we enter the century of the east, and I have no doubt that in 100 years they’ll genocide the east and rinise&repeat;

      Remember that MAO&STALIN, modern Russia & CHINA are all product of Rockefeller, aka big-oil, now big-medical;
      Rothschild to Rockefeller to now Gates carefully manage the world on 50 year plans; I remember years ago a family member married into a family of billionaires and the matriarch once took me aside and said, “Do you ever wonder how we can finance all of our Grand-Children 10’s of millions a year, forever?”, she went on to say that there were actuarial companys in London that Planned out +50 years planned wars and knew exactly where to buy&sell land & companys; Ergo the trust family’s can trust that all future generation will always keep their trusts; This family to $100M per child at 21, an $10M per year for life, and is was for all children by blood procreated on family tree;

        Fear porn! I’ve been exposed to it all my life, but it was the German version. Germans have done very well in past centuries in producing not only very good “regular” porn but also in creating the hellish and nightmare conditions required for making good “fear porn”. Germans were the source of the Protestant Reformation that gave Europeans some of the best reasons to hack their neighbors to pieces as in the 30 Year’s War. First you squabble over what words mean and then out come the swords and battleaxes to promote Christ’s love.

        Looking back at it all, I did find that the fear porn I heard as a child was more interesting and exciting than was stuff like the tv adventures of Captain Kangaroo or Woody Woodpecker. When I saw the Germans losing all the time on tv and in the movies I was rooting for the the good guys, for the USA. US kids growing up in the 50’s reflected what we saw on tv and learned in school, we assumed that since the good guys won that everything would be fine from here on out. That humanity would never experience another hell like WWII and we would have non stop comfy suburban living from the 50’s onward to forever. Western utopia had arrived and fear porn would never be a part of our lives anymore.

        But then people like JHK show up and rain on our parade, that a third commotion is on the way. Some of my relatives in Germany experienced not an end of *the* world but at least an end of *their* world, and it happened very fast. They were doing nicely in an upper middle class home one day, and the air raid the next day turned it all to rubble. In the months and years to follow, they worked like mules, were ill fed, poorly clothed, and stinky.

        The the primary warning I received from my childhood exposure to fear porn is that it can all end in just a few minutes, and that in the years to follow, you won’t be enjoying life at all, you’ll just be surviving and living in very physically painful and uncomfortable surroundings.

        Could the USA experience such a change and yet continue on as Germany did after WWII? I’m not sure. We might be so soft and so helpless that we just disintegrate into chaos and mental illness. When the dollar is rejected for use in international trade, we’ll be forced to live on the remaining scraps of stuff we have left here, our industries have been shipped off to Asia, we can’t even make our own shoes and clothing anymore. Given our past history of ceaseless violence and warfare, and along with everyone owning guns in the USA, we might simply become “ungovernable” and our former royalty and Rockefeller elites might leave because there are too many angry and dangerous people looking for them and the USA is no longer a place they’d enjoy living in.

            I merely pointed out that German Protestants were not the first to put Christ on a battle flag.

            Still, if there hadn’t been so many Christian (and/or ‘Christian) kings feeling existential guilt for the blood they spilt, we wouldn’t have so many lovely cathedrals to admire, would we?

          “Germans were the source of the Protestant Reformation that gave Europeans some of the best reasons to hack their neighbors to pieces as in the 30 Year’s War. ”

          For a different, and IMO more thought-provoking, take on the historical significance of the Thirty Years’ War, take a look at the latest from Laurent Guyenot:

          httpX://www.unz.com/article/the-failed-empire/

          Personally I think Americans will figure out how to make shoes when they don’t come from China anymore.

          Hey, we might go back to shoes that you can actually resole when the soles get a hole but the uppers are still perfectly good. We might train up a few cobbler shops—-or start a few shoe repair franchises.

          Hmmm, that looks to me like an idea with legs . . .

        “Like the weather, tomorrow will be same-same as today.”

        About the weather, maybe, maybe not. The Eastern Pacific has been cooling for a few years now and record cold and weird storms are obvious everywhere. Right now I’m curious about the global warming alarmists, and I do know they exist in California. There’s an AGW alarmist somewhere at this moment very frightened and confused. They are trapped inside homes in Southern California. San Bernardino Country National Weather Service a few days back issued their first ever blizzard warning. Here we have people snowed in under massive drifts, emergency help still unavailable, and yet for years they’d been worrying about the ice caps melting and the end of all snow everywhere. The cognitive dissonance the human mind is capable of is remarkable.

        The climate is changing and getting stormier and colder. This is exactly what happens during grand solar minimums. These events happen like clockwork via the solar cycles, and we are entering one. The last major grand solar minimum happened during the Maunder Minimum, when the Thames River in England was frozen so solid and for so long that the affluent were out having fun on the ice and even having fairs.

    I have not seen a mention of this anywhere; So I think it must be recorded; You all note that recently Snowden made a point that “energy dept’ said covid was leaked; Ok, but he was obviously mis-directing as he meant DOE which is called “Dept of Energy”, this is critical;
    They are security for all Nuclear under USA watch, that includes bombs and nuke-plants; DOE security is retired Navy Seals & Delta-Force guys about 35 years old and all they do is train; They’re the best, in comps of sniper vs sniper they beat all teams; Now here’s my point, DOE is also security for bio-weapons; So for DOE to say COVID escaped from a BLS4 lab means they ‘failed’ as they have never lost a nuke or bio-weapon;
    This is a massive mea-culpa on their part that is being ignored;
    Now surely wuhan was making covid bio-weapons but so were the other +70 USA bio-weapon labs worldwide; The initial COVID release was IRAN, MILAN-Italy, US-MIL midwest ( pre wuhan mil-games ) all Aug/Sep-2019; Of course also the wuhan wet-market;
    IMHO the so called ‘escaped’ bio-weapons were just sent FEDEX to CIA contractors say in MILAN/FLORENCE where they were released into the chinese factory working community that all free-lance sex with older Italian men; Returning to CHINA for ‘spring-fest’ Jan2020 meant that COVID went everywhere in CHINA, also mega-tons of old Italian men died of COVID post NOV2019;
    Iran same deal, COVID wiped out much of the GOV a very viscious strain;
    Like Spanish flu of 1918, which originated by US-MIL at midwest bases, COVID SEP2019 was dispersed by MIL going to WUHAN games in OCT2019, which blewback west for cover;

      It must have occurred to many that the sudden revelation – from the soi-disant ’17 Intelligence agencies’™ ® – that the consensus now (thanks a heap!) is that covid a Chinese lab escape might be an attempt at misdirection from those (Fauci funded) biolabs the Russians found in the Ukraine in March last.
      That SMO is nearing completion, with as little destruction to non combatants as feasible – somewhat unlike the invasions of Iraq when infrastructure such as water, power and communications were the first targets for destruction.
      When there’s been time for proper evaluation of what they found in them, there is going to be a lot of angry people needing to be distracted by “look over there!”.

    At this point, why does it even matter that Wray issues some garbled, mealy-mouthed statement about the “origin of the pandemic”? Since the pandemic is a fraud anyway, it just logically follows that the origin of the pandemic is the imagination of someone or some group, such as Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, and/or others.

    The argument over whether or not some new virus originated in a lab or in a “wet market” is obviously just a ruse to support the falsehood that there actually is a new killer plague virus loose among humanity.

    It seems to me that a fake pandemic, declared on the basis of a change in the definition of “pandemic”, requires the invention of an imaginary “novel coronavirus”. If they can get you arguing over the wrong thing, they don’t have to worry about more people waking up to the obvious.

            “Yes, there’s hatred against us. Why? In 1958, the US gov’t faced– we know from internal records– 3 major crises in the world– North Africa, Middle East, and Indonesia– all with oil producing states, all Islamic states. President Eisenhower [who coined the infamous concern for the military industrial complex, and is subject of an excellent documentary film, The Fog of War], in an internal discussion, observed to his staff that– I’m quoting it now– there’s a campaign of hatred against us in the Middle east, not by gov’ts, but by the people. The National Security council discussed that question and said yes, and the reason is, there’s a perception in that region that the US supports status-quo governments which prevent democracy and development and that we do it because of our interest in near east oil. Furthermore it’s difficult to counter that perception because it’s correct, and furthermore it ought to be correct. We ought to be supporting brutal and corrupt gov’ts, which prevent democracy and development, because we want to control Middle East oil. And it’s true that leads to a campaign of hatred against us. Now until Bernard Lewis tells us that– and that’s only one piece of a long story– we know that he’s a just a vulgar propagandist, not a scholar… So yes as long as we are supporting harsh brutal gov’ts, blocking democracy and development because of our interest in controlling the oil resources of the region, there will be a campaign of hatred against us.” ~ Noam Chomsky

        I would suggest that the issues Fred discusses are otherwise accountable. I saw what he describes and well understood the lesson…50 years ago.

          I don’t have any power, so that’s a ridiculous question (what am I going to do about it?).

          Obviously, black people did not behave 100 years ago as a culture as they do now. Obviously, that is because of really complex ways of engineering current behavior (as they’ve done with covidiots, for example, or the trans loons). What happens to kids if you kowtow to them and give them everything they want without having to work for it? How do criminals behave when they can’t be arrested or jailed for their crimes?

          This is mass manipulation. I give 2 great examples. To people who can see engineering instead responding in a knee-jerk fashion to stuff, that article sounds like an unhinged rant of someone who doesn’t understand history or psychology.

            Social Butterflies

            They are eating the governments’ and/or big biz’s historical ‘butterflies’ and now we appear to have hurricanes approaching.

            In fact, how government operates is fundamentally-flawed, so that is its own butterfly that now appears to be approaching hurricane force winds.

            Moral of the story: Check/Nip our social butterflies in the bud(pupae?), preventative medicine and all that.

            But, ya, ‘human condition’… Maybe we can one era, transcend it in important ways, maybe via becoming a new species, and therefore less human in some important ways.

            Otherwise, maybe our ‘lot in life’ shall essentially be, ‘rinse and repeat’ until the sun’s nova puts an end to that.

            What if…what if climate change occurs due to a paucity of butterflies? No butterfly effect, and hence the perturbations we are now experiencing? It makes equal sense to sanction then…Canadians, who we have established*, destroyed the butterfly population through consumption.

            A consumption tax on your aboriginals…retroactive to, say…1950? Payable to the US government in ancestral lands?

            Administered by the US Marine Corps?

          You Live By The Slave, And Die By The Slave

          “The issue is that it exists now, and what are you going to do about it?” ~ elysianfield

          ——

          One could write something as simple as ‘get rid of fundamentally-unethical businesses and government’ but that’s stupid-easy to say compared with to do, right?

          So?

          So maybe ‘hiding out’ in some remote corner somewhere like Oregon seems like one option..

          Until government can be taken out (maybe it collapses on its own) and then after the dust has all settled.

          ——

          “…it is clear that the existence of a centralized state vastly increases both the profit and the prevalence of violence. The fact that the violence is masked by obedience in no way diminishes the brutality of coercion. All moralists interested in one of the greatest topics of ethics– the reduction or elimination of violence– would do well to understand the depth and degree to which the existence of a centralized state promotes, exacerbates and profits from violence… as we can see from countless examples throughout history, violence always escalates until civil society is utterly destroyed. Because the state so directly profits from violence, eliminating the state can in no way increase the use of violence within society. Quite the contrary… eliminating the state will, to a degree unprecedented in human history, eliminate violence as well.” ~ Stefan Molyneux

          ——

          “Concluding Thoughts
          In view of the foregoing arguments, we might well restate Olson’s ultimate economic conclusion on anarchy as follows: If a population acts to serve its common interest, it will never choose the state. In reaching this conclusion, we need not deny the countless problems that will plague the people living in a society without the state; any anarchical society, being peopled in normal proportion by vile and corruptible individuals, will have crimes and miseries aplenty. But everything that makes life without a state undesirable makes life with a state even more undesirable. The idea that the anti-social tendencies that afflict people in every society can be cured or even ameliorated by giving a few persons great discretionary power over all the others is, upon serious reflection, seen to be a wildly mistaken notion. Perhaps it is needless to add that the structural checks and balances on which Madison relied to restrain the government’s abuses have proven to be increasingly unavailing and, bearing in mind the expansive claims and actions under the present U.S. regime, are now almost wholly superseded by a form of executive caesarism in which the departments of government that were designed to check and balance each other have instead coalesced in a mutually supportive design to plunder the people and reduce them to absolute domination by the state.

          My arguments in support of self-government, as opposed to society under a state, may have little point, of course: if people do not choose the state, but, as I think, simply have it imposed on them, then it makes no practical difference that the state is unnecessary to solve any particular kind of problem and that life without the state would be superior (Holcombe 2004). Life without cancer would be superior, too, but so far we have not found a way to get rid of it, and we have no guarantee that we ever will find a way, so we can only strive to make the best of a bad situation. We need also to consider the likely outcome if our society had no state but another society did, and that state had the capacity to harm us greatly and, for whatever reason, sought to do so. I am not convinced that this particular problem is insoluble, and indeed I believe that the state’s defenders may have blown it out of proportion, but I do not dismiss it entirely. The Irish monks may have had the better argument, but it availed them little when Henry VIII decided to rip the roof off the monastery.

          Here, however, I have tried only to show how we may think more clearly about the choice between a society under the state and a society composed of self-governing individuals. Assuming that we really had such a choice, the better option seems to me fairly obvious. If the reader takes anything away from my arguments here, however, I hope that it will be an appreciation of how highly warranted is an application of the precautionary principle in choosing between anarchy and the state. Fire has proven to be a magnificent aid to human beings, but a fire that cannot be contained portends our utter destruction, and the state is precisely such a fire.” ~ Robert Higgs, ‘If Men Were Angels: The Basic Analytics of the State versus Self-government’

      “…this in large part promoted by governments at all levels…”

      ——

      From your article:

      “People of good will, and others, talk about ‘root causes.’ These usually include the lingering effects of slavery, genetics, the Great Society, racism, drugs, and culture. Well and good, but what effect does talking have? Nice people speak of large numbers of likeable, law-abiding and just plain good blacks, who exist. Fine, but speaking improves nothing. Others point out that in other times black society had far lower rates of all of its current ills. True, but we do not live in other times [Duh.]*.

      Call me dim, but it looks to me that all of America’s racial problems are getting worse and will continue getting worse, this in large part promoted by governments at all levels, by schools and universities and racial lobbies. Where is this going?”

    ”Okay. So either a giant offensive will happen any minute now (it might have just started while I was typing that), or it will never happen at all, or it already happened, or perhaps it’s in a state of quantum superposition in which it has both succeeded and failed, at least until we open the box……

    I would like to suggest an alternative to all these theories, because what the world needs most right now is more opinions.”

    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today… Aha-ah…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace… You…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world… You…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one

    Jarek: This is what most of you believe. You may not like having your belief system encapsulated by a pop song. And you may therefor repudiate the song as I believe Mary has done. But no matter: You still believe exactly what the song says.

    It’s Globalism (the world will live as one), Communism (no possessions or private property, you will have nothing and you will be happy). And it’s just going to happen if you believe hard enough? No, it’s going to happen when the Capitalist fist breaks everything down, using Communist/Anarchists troops as needed. And it will be hell on Earth.

    But the song is so beautiful – yes,
    it describes the Reign of God on Earth. It can’t be attained except thru God’s grace. That’s different from the Mailed Fist and Iron Heel of Capitalism/Communism, you see. Or the social activism of busy bodies and bureaucrats – who work for the Lords of Matter, either knowingly or not, paid or not.

    Mary said people should be able to go wherever they want. Imagine there’s no countries…..

    So Muslims can just go to Europe and demand benefits that they are not entitled to. Immigrants to the United States get social security benefits.

    No countrieS, just one big Country spanning the entire Globe. Zaza doesn’t want this per se, but the things he wants can only be attained by Global Governance.

    As Thomas a Kempis said, Men say they want peace, but they don’t want the things that make for peace.

    The thing that makes for peace is Global Government. Is the price too high? Obviously! As Calcagus the Celt said, They (the Romans) make a desert and call it peace. The only guarantor against this terrible Desert is the Nation State (not a “cuntry!). What does ZaZa hate the most? The Nation State. So he’d trade something imperfect for his ultimate nightmare, thinking he was doing good business.

      The song is a Bromide. The fab four have never been accused of deep thinking.

      A bromide because it is only a wish.

      Imagine there is no religion?

      Some people need rules. Some don’t. Some people can figure out rules to live by, some can’t.

      The bromide assumes everyone has their shit together and there are no idiots.

      In a capitalist arrangement if you don’t get to work on time you can be ‘written up’.

      In a socialist arrangement if you don’t get to work on time you can be ‘written up’.

      A pure communist arrangement is so pie-in-the-sky it is not really worth discussing. Communism is at the far end of the socialist spectrum and mostly theoretical.

      Consider:

      1. Always and inevitably, each of us underestimates the number of stupid individuals in the world.

      2. The probability that a certain person is stupid is independent of any other characteristic of the same person.

      3. A stupid person is one who causes harm to another person or group without at the same time obtaining a benefit for himself or even damaging himself.

      4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the harmful potential of stupid people.

      5. The stupid person is the most dangerous person that exists.

      Any political system has to keep the stupid under control. This is not a matter of tyranny as the stupid claim. It is simple karma and common sense.

      No work no eat should be true of any arrangement.

      Except capitalism.

      Which is why a lot of the stupid people like it so much.

        You’re a Pepsi guy and prefer Coca Cola. That’s fine. Diversity matters. You DO have the same vision, essentially, with perhaps just a different style or aesthetic. There’s no reason to call your fellow travelers stupid.

        I’d like to build the world a home
        And furnish it with love
        Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

        I’d like to teach the world to sing
        In perfect harmony
        I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company

        I’d like to see the world for once
        All standing hand in hand
        And hear them echo through the hills “Ah, peace throughout the land”

        (That’s the song I hear)
        I’d like to teach the world to sing (that the world sings today)
        In perfect harmony

        I’d like to teach the world to sing
        In perfect harmony

        I’d like to build the world a home

      I don’t believe in globalism so I fall within the few category rather than the most category. But I also don’t think social activism is always a bad thing. But it does depend of course on how that energy is being channeled. Some people don’t believe in any government but that really can’t be practical because people find ways to organize. Even if that organization is not very complex or what have you.

        • Jarek March 5, 2023 at 12:44 pm #

          So a guy of German descent planned to use his language ability to live and work in the land of his ancestors – perhaps brushing up on the language in high school and college. In other words, years of effort and planning.

          Somehow that is the same as illegal aliens barging into Western countries from utterly alien cultures.

        “A false dilemma, also referred to as false dichotomy or false binary, is an informal fallacy based on a premise that erroneously limits what options are available. The source of the fallacy lies not in an invalid form of inference but in a false premise. This premise has the form of a disjunctive claim: it asserts that one among a number of alternatives must be true. This disjunction is problematic because it oversimplifies the choice by excluding viable alternatives, presenting the viewer with only two absolute choices when in fact, there could be many.” ~ Wikipedia

        So will these self governing anarchist communities allow in people from other sgac’s? Why not since they will all be basically the same, right?

        The first thing No. 6 did when he got back to England (he thought) was ask, Do we have a village here too? And in desperation, It is better here, right?

        The Village was in the Baltic area and had a lot of Slavs. But it delighted in affecting an English tone, with the local paper called, The Tally Ho!

        One can imagine that the Village in England would be a mirror image, full of Englishmen but affecting a Russian ethos.

        I hate to burst your Rover, but your vision is not only consonant with Globalism, but dependent on it. It’s just a different take on 15 minute communities.

        • The Man They Call Zazelle March 5, 2023 at 2:44 pm #

          I’ve already written, likely hereon too, that I’ll get my relative anarchy one way or another… which is not to necessarily suggest that everyone everywhere will get it.

          It may be from the collapse(s) of large-scale centralized coercive governments and ‘failed States’, or it may be in their ‘hyperdemocratic’ (essentially or mostly anarchic/equitable) sea-changes for the better.

          My sense of it is that, so far, it is leaning toward the former.

          As for your ‘globalism’ (with a capital G?) you’d have to define it.

          If it’s along the lines of WEF’s (et al.’s) apparent wet dreams, JHK doesn’t seem to think it will work either.

          For one, you need larger levels of energy and complexity to project power across a globe. And we are running out of the easy and complex stuff. Energy and complexity may be directly related.

          Relatively-anarchic villages are certainly possibilities.

          I could go on, but we’ll leave it at that for the moment and with a quote:

          ——

          “Anthropologist Elman Service presented a system of classification for societies in all human cultures, based on the evolution of social inequality and the role of the state. This system of classification contains four categories:

          Hunter-gatherer bands that are generally egalitarian
          Tribal societies with some limited instances of social rank and prestige
          Stratified tribal societies led by chieftains (see Chiefdom)
          Civilizations, with complex social hierarchies and organized, institutional governments…” Wikipedia

          BTW, you’ve doubtless heard of the terms degrowth and relocalization, yes?

          Well, given their successes, they bring us closer to anarchy because they are simpler, smaller and more local.
