What you’re actually seeing in the rhetorical hoo-ha over the January Sixth capitol riot is the main cattle-prod driving mob madness — fear of Covid-19 — losing its power to terrorize the public. The Party-of-Chaos put on a grand opera of lamentation Thursday to celebrate its unity in victim-hood — we wuz so traumatized by the riot! — but in the background, they can see their dearer dream of total vaccination — and total control of the population — fade in the winter mists.

This is the crisis of a managerial class that has lost its ability to manage anything, including all of us. Thus, the hysteria in the blue precincts of America, where they are concentrated. And, as I’ve averred before, the madness probably has its roots in the slow-motion train wreck of our techno-industrial economy. The managerial class can surely sense it and see it coming, but they don’t have a clue what to do about it. So, in desperate need of some signifying ritual, they’re left performing a grand-scale Chinese fire drill like drunken sophomores of yore — a flurry of pointless, attention-seeking activity.

You see, this total vaccination fantasy is meant to compensate for that inability to govern in a time of epic turbulence. It provides an illusion of control. But the obvious insanity of it stands out in the demonstrable facts that the vaccinations don’t work, and that they are racking up an impressive record of harming people. These two facts must be ignored by the vax-happy Blue Team, even as the immunizing and pretty harmless Omicron variant spreads speedily across the land conferring superior natural immunity on those who survive it — which is, functionally, everyone.

The virus looks like it’s on that ol’ exit ramp, but the disintegrating economy will still be with us, and no amount of political degeneracy disguised as virtue will stop it. We still have to manage our lives individually and collectively going through it. It’s going to be a tough slog. The federal government in its current iteration is looking like more of an impediment than a help to any of us. Its current hysterical flounderings send a clear message: You can’t depend on us to do anything right. Instead, select a favorable place to plant your flag, and figure out what you can do locally to rebuild some means of productive activity, fortify basic institutions of law, public safety, and money, and restore credible authority.

You will have to be nimble and resourceful. The Covid lockdowns of the past two years have destroyed many small businesses, but think of that as the tide going out before the blowback of a tsunami that will sweep away the large businesses next. The WalMarts, the automobile industry, the airlines, trucking, Amazon.com, major league sports, the fast-food empires, the oil industry, the mega-banks — all these systems have gone into speed-wobble and most of them will crash hard.

It’s an issue of scale. The broken giants will have to be replaced by lower-scaled systems for producing stuff, moving it, and selling it. That includes food, especially, by the way. How are you going to be part of that where you live? What role can you imagine yourself in? What are you good at? What do you dream of being good at? Can you assemble a social network for yourself? Do you have any ability to look after the public interest? Can you speak coherently? Do you mean what you say? Are you grounded morally in right-and-wrong? Can others depend on you to keep your word? These are the questions that will matter going forward, not whether you were vaccinated, or voted for Mr. Trump, or know the lyrics to God Bless America.

It looks like the disorders of economy and community are heading to center stage as the Covid-19 melodrama closes down. Since human nature is perverse, the current mass formation psychosis may transfer its energy onto new hobgoblins. But the mass of Americans — putting aside blue and red insignia for a moment — might simply be tired of lunacy. They may even begin to show some impatience with those who generate it, for instance the cable TV news channels. Some of the most practiced conveyors of lunacy are heading out the door in the months ahead. Joy Reid of MSNBC is reportedly on her way off-camera (not by choice), and a while back the redoubtably dishonest Rachel Maddow announced her exit for April of this year, probably in anticipation of all her beloved narratives falling apart.

Lunacy is exhausting. Soon enough, even the crazed governments of Euroland and Australia will suddenly drop their lockdowns and vaccination tyrannies as reality presses on the bubbles they occupy. In the face of the Omicron fade-out, they’ll turn 180-degrees and try to pretend that the episode of madness never happened. I doubt they will get away with it. Many politicians in these lands will be bum-rushed from office at the first opportunity.

Even our earnestly malicious Dr. Fauci is back-pedaling furiously, perhaps hearing the bloodhounds of justice yapping out in the gloaming. This week, he finally admitted that half the hospital cases of Covid were actually some other illnesses with the label “Covid” slapped on — in effect, to bribe corrupt hospital managers with big wads of federal subsidy money for using the killer drug remdesivir and intubating hapless Covid victims. Sounds like a racket, a little bit, but then the word racket defines the totality of Dr. Fauci’s career. The decisions he made about banning early treatment of Covid and suppressing information about cheap and effective drugs — in the service of preserving the emergency use authorization and the concomitant liability shield for his deadly “vaccines” — arguably led to the deaths of several hundred thousand people. If he doesn’t live to see prosecution, bear in mind that he had plenty of deputies and associates throughout the public health agencies carrying out that policy who deserve to spend some time in courtrooms.

Meanwhile, the prudent will save their energy to get through the rigors ahead and make plans for a changed economic landscape that will require all the classical virtues they can muster for creating a life worth living.

        No, because in Fascism, the Government guides and controls (not owns) Industry, whereas in our system, the Corporations ultimately control the Government.

        You almost got it right since the two spheres can’t be kept separate in the modern industrial state. You just got it reversed – which of course is getting all wrong.

            Troll does not have a degree in biochemistry and toxicology or a research-based PhD in respiratory pharmacology, like Mike Yeadon, so the best he can do for his paymasters is to fling yet more ad homs.

            If you listened to the interview and responded, you might have some credibility as a non-troll, troll.

      Lately Walmart has been looking to me like they have no interest in running actual stores.

      • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 10:41 am #

        The retail store is on the way out.

        Amazon keeps taking away the advantage of the retail stores, ease of returns, better selection, instant gratification, and eyes-on selection. Retail sales has almost no protective advantage, thus its precarious position.

        My wife says that retail stores have lousy selection, too, but that could be generational.

        Ha, like paying to have holes torn into jeans legs. To make them look worn out?

        Someone needs to come up with a better idea, always. Someone needs to compete with Bezos. Governmental protection to protect Amazon needs to be removed.

        Along with all the other big corporations, competition needs to reign supreme.

        Remove protection, do not penalize, the competitive sand box needs to be level.

        • DrTomSchmidt January 7, 2022 at 10:44 am #

          Amazon makes basically no money running Amazon.com. The big money is in AWS, supported by the Intelligence Community. There they make a LOT of money.

          That’s going to come to an end, too, but not before subsidized Amazon.com has made a sterile landscape of retail.

          • Beryl of Oyl January 7, 2022 at 11:13 am #

            I know so many people, not just women, but many younger men as well, who enjoy going shopping as a pastime.

            The malls are failing because the anchor stores are failing, not because the customers all of a sudden stopped.

            Sometimes I am forced to try to order shoes online. I read the reviews, all the women having a terrible time trying to buy shoes without having tried them on first.

            Then there’s the dreaded “runs big” or “runs small”. If one sneaker in a brand isn’t the same size as their other size 6 1/2, why do the tell you it’s that size? Why not call it the size it is?

            If you aren’t careful, you end up spending money to try on clothing.

          • jerrydylan January 7, 2022 at 11:32 am #

            Right you are. I noticed Amazon prices were higher for selected goods than Ebay where a human is actually selling brand new things exactly the same as Amazon.

          • cbeard January 8, 2022 at 6:01 am #

            AWS?

          • ianw January 9, 2022 at 2:33 am #

            Amazon makes basically no money running Amazon.com. The big money is in AWS

            Some evidence that amazon.com doesn’t make money … I think this is horseradish. And what is “AWS” when it’s at home?

            What rabbit-hole are you emerging from?

          • sstumpff January 10, 2022 at 3:47 pm #

            This is an important point for Anti-trust. Would amazon.com (and other amazon online stores) make any money at all if it had to pay full price for servers like everyone else who uses AWS?

        • Jarek January 7, 2022 at 11:10 am #

          Hey, less fabric. So women’s clothes should be cheaper than men’s, but they’re fancy, so no.

          The gimmick lately is men wearing shorts in the winter.

          • Beryl of Oyl January 7, 2022 at 11:16 am #

            I notice wearing flip flops in February in the northeast is no longer a thing.

          • crudgemudgeon January 7, 2022 at 12:11 pm #

            Vkad, I noticed that those wearing shorts and flip flops and looking stoic all arrive in late model vehicles that aren’t going to break down. Then they park close to the entrance of their destination. They aren’t walking anywhere far.

          • Jarek January 7, 2022 at 12:31 pm #

        • lastman January 7, 2022 at 11:43 am #

          People just need to ignore bezos…ignore all of them.

          If not, future generations will be/have nothing.

          If I’m not mistaken, someone already said that.

          • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 12:18 pm #

            Right, but it will not happen until something better comes along.

            One comment on Amazon, it is nothing but a catalogue store combined with a very slick delivery service. It has cost all of us much higher shipping charges as other companies have tried to compete.

            Remember though, it is a store, that promotes sales from manufacturers. It promotes small business. Sears, Wards, Kmart, Target and Walmart are predecessors.

            One other observation, there is a drive by the computer nerds to make everything happen at home, to stay home. Naturally, the Covid business has aided their drive. So has Amazon. Most people do not like the shopping at the mall experience anymore. Bezos realized these trends and is wealthy because of it.

          • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 5:26 pm #

            I was never big on mall shopping. I tended to patronize the smaller places. They are all but gone.

            The end of JITS is the siren call of the big box establishments.

        • MisterBimmler January 8, 2022 at 8:39 pm #

          You’ll remember that JC Penneys catalog companies put the hurt on the mom n pop shops back in the XIX century- Then Wal_Mart crushed the big catalog companies’ bricks n mortar outlets. Now finally online is crushing WalMart. But still, through it all, a lot of mom n pop shops of various kinds grind through. I could put in a commercial for my wife’s vintage clothing business. The answer seems to lie in combining a shopfront of even micro size with an online presence using one of a number of online intermediaries-who naturally sit on your money for several days before sending it on, but codb. There are always guerilla solutions.

      • Blackbird January 7, 2022 at 12:28 pm #

        Walmart has always looked that way to me. Walked into a Walmart 5 times in my life (cursing my weakness each time). And each time walked out empty-handed because they didn’t have what I was looking for (asking myself, “When are you going to learn?”, each time). Actually the first time I just went to see if they had anything made in the USA – I didn’t find anything, even the “Made in USA” hat was made in China.

        • Beryl of Oyl January 7, 2022 at 12:55 pm #

          Walmart has always varied by location, from what I understand. Some in more rural areas of the south were much nicer stores.

          When Sam Walton was alive, Walmart still carried more USA made products than other places.

          Remember how you used to get greeted when you entered? Now many stores send someone running after you as you are leaving, demanding to see your sales slip.

          • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 5:33 pm #

            Sam Walton ran it as hands-on as possible.

            Would show up a loading dock in the wee morning hours with coffee and doughnuts, talk with the employees, find out what was good and what they needed, address issues. Find a truck, introduce himself, and ride in the cab for the next 10-12 hours. Learned a lot about the business and employees with such tactics.

            Not taught in the management schools today.

          • Anthea January 7, 2022 at 7:00 pm #

            In my rural area, Walmart is almost the only place to shop within a reasonable driving distance–and certainly the only place where you can run in and pick up a toaster, a pair of reading glasses, a bunch of radishes, and a quart of motor oil–and fill your prescription.

            Since both the clientelle and the employees are almost all rural, everyone is friendly and courteous.

            People who live in the city tell me that they don’t shop at Walmart because the other shoppers are tweakers and assorted other forms of lowlife, and they don’t want to get mugged in the parking lot.

        • UN OUT OF USA January 7, 2022 at 3:03 pm #

          Blackbird, while not a big fan of Walmart, I recently went there looking for propane camping gas in 16oz. cylinders for a heater of mine. My local sporting goods store was all out. Walmart had Coleman Camping Gas cylinders in the 16 oz. size that I needed. These are made in the USA “with global components”. The actual cylinders are made by Worthington Cylinder Corp in Columbus, OH. Like I said, I am not a big fan of Walmart but fair is fair. Not everything in these horrid stores are made in China.

      • 100th Avatar January 7, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

        Walmart has ALWAYS looked to me like they have no interest in their actual stores.

        I have visited, very regrettably, maybe three times, through no real choice, and each time I could only overcome the experience by way of a long hot shower, a three finger pour of a nightcap, and a trip to an old fashioned steak house. Bottle and cigar service and all that.

    • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 10:28 am #

      Yes, to make a healthy competitive capitalistic economy happen, big box needs to be constantly replaced by more aggressive smaller companies and corporations. Remember the bail out of the car companies, watch the government try to aid them to shut down Tesla.

      The Deep State is the source of the ability of big corporations to ignore taxes, get contracts, move offshore, access Wall Street. The DeepState wants few and big corporations so they can control the economy from DC.

      Jarek is right, capitalism trends towards monopolization, yes, and it needs negative feedback of some sort, maybe realistic progressive income taxes to thwart the loss of competitiveness. Another effect, though, is the government forcing the loss of competitiveness by favoring the big guys. The Deep State wants socialism, albeit Communism. Germany did the same thing under Hitler, nationalizing the economy for power, fascism.

      Remember Trump wanting to put a tax return on a post card. The inside track on that was he wanted to undo the protection the big boxes have from taxes and the power of the Congressional lobbyists for preferential tax treatment.

      It is this power that will destroy capitalism in the US. The Deep State is smiling at the demise of our competitive society.

      • Jarek January 7, 2022 at 11:14 am #

        Your post makes no sense. Centralization will happen unless a more powerful force checks it. That would be the Government. Fascism and National Socialism give orders to industry not vice versa.

        Americans are insane. If you put the issue before got_truth he would choose to be ruled by the corporations rather than evil government.

        It is one or the other. I’d rather be ruled by people who were elected and have sworn oaths to serve. They can be removed, at least theoretically, in an otherwise healthy state. None of that is true under Plutocracy. The rulers there answer only to the shareholders.

        • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 12:23 pm #

          YOUR post makes no sense.

          You are saying the government is the control over centralization, monopolization?

          They are the cause of it!!

          Socialism, totalitarianism has destroyed societies . The decentralization of societies is the trigger for solid economies.

          You believe the vote will control the government? Jarek, your are just plain not paying attention.

          • Jarek January 7, 2022 at 12:33 pm #

            Private capital centralizes. That’s what the International Banks and Corporations (now the Funds) are. They rule the West and much of the rest of the planet to boot. Your libertarianism was a ruse for the rubes. A mind poison. It worked. You are the evidence.

          But if I’ve got to make a choice between the forces of commerce and the forces of government, I think that’s pretty dicey.

          After all, there’s thousands of years of recorded history. And most of the wars, oppressions, suppressions, genocides, ethnic cleansing and mass internments have been perpetrated by the guy saying “I’m here to run things “, NOT by the guy saying “I’m here to sell you stuff”.

          Good info from Pepe Escobar on the background to the current op in Kaz:
          http://thesaker.is/steppe-on-fire-kazakhstans-color-revolution/

          Escobar doesn’t mention vaxxpasses. Perhaps his informants didn’t mention.

          If you are unfamiliar with Pepe Escobar, don’t be turned off by The Saker blog location.The Saker, Andrei Rayevsky, is his own brand of covid nut, but his blog an excellent “from-the-horse’s-mouht” source on Euransian affairs. Some of the regular commenters are very well informed.

          Escobar is one of the most brilliant analysts and writers out there. His “official” perch is Asia Times.

          There is other good analysis of Russia/Eurasian affairs here–namely, the Ukraine/Russia/Donbass situ:
          http://thesaker.is/latest-articles/

          It seems quite clear that the US is trying to start a war with Russia. Some in the admin or DoD must ; know that this is madness and we can’t win. other hardliners want to give it a try. Meanwhile, Russia-China have pretty much perfected their SWIFT alternative. Check out the great Hudson-Norton interview (also linked at The Saker blog) to see more dots and ways to connect them.

        • Uncle Bob January 9, 2022 at 3:00 pm #

          Kinda makes one think of this passage, especially TBE last few verses:

          Revelation 13

          NIV

          The Beast out of the Sea
          1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” 5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear. 10 “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed.”This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.
          The Beast out of the Earth
          11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

        • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 12:26 pm #

          Well said!

          • lastman January 7, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

            Here’s one for you John. True story, I’ll be as brief as I can.

            Bitcoin…Group of investors bought an old abandon plant in a nearby liberal city…for pennies on the dollar/10 year tax blah,blah. Investors fixed the place up minutely and began renting spaces. In comes a bitcoin mining deal. Pretty big one from what I could see. So, their mining coin. BC heading up…smart move it appears. BC to 100k! Suddenly, BC flat lines for quite a while. I think it was stuck in the $30 k area for quite some time.

            With the plant also came a bunch or small rental homes…plus or minus a 100 of them. So they got more money/tax incentives to create affordable housing. These places could have been bought for easily under a 100k and probably a lot less than that before all of this. Homes built circa 1930 on avg. 1000-1500 sq. ft. max. Get the pic?

            So, with BC flatlining, the BC investors suddenly bail. Gone. No continued growth in BC, no profit.

            With the sudden RE boom, the investor dudes are like, hey man BC left so we gotta pay da man, so we going to offer these homes to the existing renters…we’ll make them a deal that they can’t refuse. How about $349,995.00?

            Homes worth about 50k on a 50×50 lot. I do know that you could not buy one for under $300k.

            So back to where I was going, massive amounts of electricity, BC. The county where this took place produces 60 mega kilowatts of electricity…for the whole county. The bitcoin mining op used 20 mega kilos of it.

            1/3 of a whole counties electricity…every month…to mine BC…in a GREEN communist shining shithole of ignorance.

            Oh…I forgot to mention that this area was also a (“reclaimed”) superfund cleanup site.

          • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 1:35 pm #

            I do not know how much of the BC part was involved, but your economic description reminds me of Williston, ND with the advent of Fracking.

            Same thing in 19th century with Gold, Silver and Copper mining. There are thousands of ghost towns around to record the destruction.

        • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 9:37 pm #

          Interesting, thanks. I hadn’t looked at uranium production beyond the areas in Canada.

          from Cameco: As 40% of world’s uranium supply, any disruption in Kazakhstan could of course be a significant catalyst in the uranium market.

          I did rather well, pure luck, when Cigar Lake flooded a dozen or more years ago. Who knew a huge uranium mine in northern Saskatchewan’s frozen land would flood, boosting the price of all the other holdings in the area. Pure luck for junior players rolling the dice.

          The Russians are acting with the other regional actors to stop this quickly lest it get out of control.

          Another poster pointed to Sprott’s Physical Uranium Trust.

Considering the number of sheep I see out there very afraid, the madness will be ramped up for the mid-term, not that voting means a damn thing. It is just a ritual at this point, makes some people feel better like wearing a mask.

      • Beryl of Oyl January 7, 2022 at 10:28 am #

        Speaking of those masks, first the admit what we all already knew- a piece of cloth over your airways doesn’t do anything.

        Now I am seeing in the MSM much talk of N95 and KN95 masks, and suddenly a lot of advertising for them.

        This is what they are going to try to push on us all next.

        It’s already starting.

        These masks have already been tested with enforcement, and have failed, but that will not stop these sick monsters.

        • Night Owl January 7, 2022 at 10:33 am #

          N95 and others of that type are not suitable for physical activity, due to CO2 buildup. They are meant to be used short term in situations where a sick person needs to reduce their ability to infect someone.

          They also need to be disposed of after about an hour or two.

        • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 11:01 am #

          The latest study using three groups, control, cloth and n95 and using actual occurrence of the disease as the measured variable showed,

          Control and cloth were identical, n95 showed a ten % decrease in disease incidence. The sample size was big, like 200000+.

          So what is the response to the data?

          More mask mandates?

          The government gives not a thought to real science.

          I ventured out to the supermarket today. No mask mandate in the particular city. What I did see, which reinforces “the MSM much talk of N95 and KN95 masks, and suddenly a lot of advertising for them” was a significant number of these masks.

          Prior to this, I’d see one occasionally, could almost figure it was someone in the trades who would normally have a supply in the course of doing work.

          The people I saw with them today, and there were many, by garb alone aren’t working in the trades.

          I avoid MSM as much as possible. Watching what people are doing and how they act gives me a lot of info regarding the current MSM line of bs.

          • Paula D January 7, 2022 at 7:53 pm #

            Not George, allowing men to “identify” themselves as women and thus allowing men into women’s private spaces, including locker rooms, showers, barracks, sports, prison cells, dressing rooms, bathrooms and spas, should be worthy of everyone’s time and attention.
            A woman is a biological entity, a reality, the half of humanity that bears children, but under the new laws, ”woman” is a fantasy feeling in a man’s head.
            If you want to live in reality you’d probably pay some attention. Because they are now telling children as young as three that they ”might have been born in the wrong body”.
            This is another Big Pharma/Big Government agenda. They are taking children away from parents who refuse to play along with the fantasy.

          • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 10:35 pm #

            Paula D, it was a collage which flipped by me on the screen. I can’t recall who else was depicted. Dozens, most likely.

            It wasn’t worth my time to linger long enough to notice who else was there. The JK Rowling color pattern stood out a bit from the rest. Otherwise I would not have noticed the collage at all. Since I’m not a MSM follower, it made zero sense until some sort of back story which I wouldn’t spend time following was posted upstream from here.

            Interesting you focused in on something I barely noticed.

            For decades I’ve been telling anyone who would listen, and many who simply ignored me, “the state” believes they own our children, the parent being a “caretaker at will’ of some sort. And… fathers don’t count as parents, only as wallets. Try fighting that system!

            Talk about an agenda!

            Maybe it is finally coming out in the open.

            “They are taking children away from parents who refuse to play along with the fantasy.”

            No Paula, it is much more: They have been taking away children from fathers as part of the fantasy. This was the beginning many decades ago. Incentivizing fatherless households, particularly within certain groups, exacerbated the problem.

            Thinking they defeated the fathers, the focus is now on defeating the mothers.

            Some women (not all women) have been going along with the gravy train for years.

            Some men (not all men) simply gave up, suffering tremendous angst about the loss of their children to a system with an agenda.

            This is one father who refused to play along. Very, very expensive. My (now adult) children are priceless to me.

            Children need both parents. Both make unique contributions to the development of their children.

            Social problems? It was all social engineering, today the end game is in view.

            The book was published over 25 years ago.

            The problem has been brewing for much longer.

            My husband and I discussed this the other day. I see it the way you do, that women are considered the primary parent by the courts, but he says that the courts prefer to give joint custody nowadays.
            I agree that fatherless families are more apt to produce feral children.
            But that is not the same attack on reality and language that the trans agenda is.
            Saying that mothers should have main custody is nowhere near the craziness of saying that women are not mothers, imo.

            The attack on men and masculinity came first. Women participated in this gleefully. Now they are dumbfounded that women and femininity are under attack. Mary refuses to admit any connection. Typical.

      Agreed Night Owl (from a Euroland perspective).

      On a somewhat positive note, the “Fauci book” (The Real Anthony Fauci, by RFK) arrived at lunchtime. I’ve fingered through it, and it is as impressive as reported, especially the footnotes and citations. A book of evidence, in effect. It’s looks structured and certainly meticulous.

      Sadly, I could only get it on amazon.com (amazon.co.uk only had the ‘summary of’ rip offs, strangely). In doing so, I broke my promise of never using amazon again, but hey ho. I have started using another online book store, and there are always book stores locally. For other items of hardware, amazon isn’t necessary anyway (at least not yet). But such is life.

      Interesting what Jim mentioned about the food supply. On Facebook earlier this morning on the page of the Irish Fish and Seafood Alliance, there was a fish product label – Alaskan pollock, caught in Alaska, sent to Poland for processing, and forwarded to Ireland for packaging as ‘Irish’. Bonkers? Yup. And that’s not a fraction of it.

      [PS When the richest fishing grounds in the EU are around the UK and Ireland (not considering Icelandic and Norwegian waters), but hey, Irish fishing grounds currently host Japanese, Korean (tuna), Russian, Faroese, Norwegian, Icelandic and EU vessels, even as Irish vessels are paid to tie to the quay. All hail the mighty EU!!]

            The interesting thing is that some technologies are actually useful. Take solar panels. In the summer, a somewhat affordable home system without an accumulator can provide power for the entire house for most of the day when the sun is out.

            In the winter, it is less effective, but with an accumulator, it can still be quite useful.

            The problem is that the costs are still far too high for the latter system.

            Then on the flip side they push technologies that right now appear to be either going nowhere or are questionable at best, such as EVs and windmills.

            I am interested in nuclear again. Have listened to some very convincing arguments that we have been lied to about the dangers, and that the Great Reset class wants energy shortages to further their control agenda. In fact, the more I read outside of the corporate press, the more it becomes apparent that we have solutions that could provide us with limitless energy, but for some reason, they just can’t seem to give it to us.

            LOL.

            Night Owl, as a certified Solar Energy installer, I personally think it is criminal that we aren’t at almost 100% of hot water generation being solar, but only in remote off-grid installations does solar electricity generation make even the slightest sense over the long term.
            At a grid level huge amounts of solar is an ongoing environmental crime, as are the windmills.

        • Wizard of the Saddle January 9, 2022 at 2:15 am #

          It’s the opposite here in Alabama. Mask mandates were short-lived and rescinded last April.

          The only people who still wear them are virtue signaling college Democrats, the very elderly or immune compromised, and COVID Karen’s afflicted with Mass Formation Psychosis. So, maybe 5-10% still wear masks in public.

          Otherwise, the vast majority of Alabamians went back to living normal lives many months ago…..and no, our hospitals are not flooded with Covid patients and we don’t have men with carts trolling our neighborhoods crying “bring out your dead.”

          I have not taken the jab. I do not wear a mask. I do no worry about social distancing. The chance of COVID killing me has always been way under 1% and I know it. Now with Omicron dominating over 95% of new infections that risk has dropped to about 1/100% of 1% risk of death.

          Hell, I’m more likely to die from a bed paper cut. Most other sensible folks in this state have pretty much figured this out as well.

    • HomoSapiensWannaBe January 7, 2022 at 10:26 am #

      A probable false-flag hypothesis for the Jan 6 “Insurrection/Coup/Attack” is that the Deep State needed a galvanizing event to help put a stop to the impending mass Republican congressional vote challenge action. So, they inserted a bunch of FBI/CIA/??? goons into the crowds, opened up the gates, and lead them into the trap. Then, with the immediate, constant “end of the democratic world” mass media hysteria fed the sheeple, any such congress critters would look to be unpatriotic fools.

      There were still a few half-assed vote fraud investigations, but the “Joe Biden” result has stood. Unlike JHK, I don’t think anything of importance will come of the Justice Department investigations.

      • Hereward the Woke January 7, 2022 at 11:10 am #

        The treatment of the Jan 6 protestors has been disgraceful, but I’m also angry at Trump. He instigated this knowing that the marches would be infiltrated and that a few hotheads would do something stupid. He let it happen and has shown zero interest in helping the people throw into the deep state dungeons.

        • TaxDonkey January 7, 2022 at 11:48 am #

        Agree, HomoSapiens, except that I would add the antifa types around the corner of the Capitol, breaking windows and pushing cops for the cameras.
        Meanwhile, the Trumpers on the front steps knew nothing about that, and were more than happy to enter the building when invited.
        Then Pelosi and McConnell announced they were under attack and stopped the proceedings.
        I had friends watching on C-Span. That was the first time that the evidence had been presented on live TV, nationwide.
        Just as one Congressman was reading the evidence the feed was cut.
        And when they all came back the dissenters had been silenced and were properly chastened.
        It was an operation and it went off flawlessly.
        I wouldn’t blame Trump for not realizing what the Deep State had planned. I think he really thought that peaceful protest would be allowed, and that democracy could have its day.
        He was wrong.

        • Alzaebo January 8, 2022 at 1:31 am #

          Wow. Wow. Paula D, that’s the most perfect summary ever. That’s it, I’m going to repeat that as often as I can.

          It was an operation to cut off presentation of the evidence of the Steal.

          Proof? My favorite picture:

          The one showing Congressionals cowering behind the front row seats?

          The larger picture shows the rows behind them. Congressmen in the seats above, sprawled out, bored, surfing their cell phones, or gazing down in perplexed contempt at the idiots cowering behind the front row seats.

        My mother had CNN on all day yesterday. What a bunch of drama queens. Insurection blah, blah blah, Trump blah, blah, blah, end of democracy blah, blah, blah. as if the Biden installation wasn’t a coup d’etat. If they have their way, democracy is already dead and the dems are permanently installed. I read that they want to approve any candidates offered by the Republicans in future to assure right thinking in the controlled opposition. Intersperced was the occasional covid, covid, covid. They were loud. Their speach was pressured. I understand their viewship has dropped to under 700,000 while the readership of The Gateway Pundit has increased by 40%. By their behavior on New Year’s Eve, I believe they know the end is nigh. It’s a tough act to properly propagandize the populace when no one is watching. How can they justify the continuation of their enormous incomes?

        Meanwhile, the baby, my first great grandaughter, has omicron along with my eldest grandaughter. The baby was pretty sick for a day, but is now only suffering a stuffy nose. Other than me, my family is now ostensibly immune. This is the end of their hopes for universal vaccination, I think.

        Too many people are hoping for a political solution in the midterms and Nov 24. As James points out, we are so far beyond that, that we’re out of sight. Even if the GOP win it all back, does anyone REALLY expect human excrement like Romney or McConnell to right all the wrongs of the last two years?

        50%? You think it’s only 50%? Watch the clip of Tucker laying into Ted Cruz for jumping ship. Cruz crawled, but Tucker didn’t really believe him.

        He will always betray us when the chips are down.
        The vast majority are like that. Capitalism/Communism is the Deep State. Republicans represent the Capitalist faction.

        The losers right? Except that Capitalism is the dominant philosophy and the Deep State is based on money. Just as Black Rock is the biggest fund, but it is actually controlled by Vanguard.

        • Beryl of Oyl January 7, 2022 at 12:25 pm #

          Who’d have thought Tucker had it in him?

          I remember, at the time Ted snuck off to Mexico on vacation while Texans were freezing, there were those who defended him because he is on ‘our side’.

          I had no problem with him getting his family someplace warm, and for not doing some sort of “pitching in” stunt.

          The problem I had with him is that what happened in Texas was the result of plans and policies in place that will affect us all, eventually, and whether they seem like federal issues right now or not, Ted is too smart not to see what’s happening, and he didn’t say one word about it.

            Consider it is already time to start running for president.

          • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 12:38 pm #

            I actually laugh about it. All the GOP contenders will try to crucify Trump until one is selected. Then you will see the glorification of the former president as the hero of the party.

            Just like Biden in 2019, remember who his greatest critic was in the debates.

            His Vice President.

        • crudgemudgeon January 7, 2022 at 12:41 pm #

          I gained respect for Ted. He showed up and faced his accuser (Carlson, who I also admire). He was credible. I never liked him at all until he got over Trump’s insults when Trump won and became a big supporter of the new president, and even brought a suit to the SC challenging the fraudulent election. Remember, these are politicians and not boy scouts.

    Mr. Kunstler’s writings and recommendations for future living arrangements are prescient, timely, and grounded in facts.

    Genuine Facts About Omicron, Delta, Naturally Acquired Immunity, and Vaccines:
    https://www.justfactsdaily.com/omicron-delta-naturally-acquired-immunity-vaccines

    Summary:
    Scores of rigorously documented facts show that politicians and public health officials have mishandled the Covid-19 pandemic in grossly negligent ways that have harmed and killed countless people. With cover from the media, this cabal is blaming the Omicron and Delta variants for the devastation caused by their actions.

    …and by extension, members of the old republics and autocracies who were first in line for EUA mRNA injections and boosters, shall be first in line for early involuntary retirement, due to the accelerating maladies of myocarditis and clotting.

    No individual legal recourse is presently available, as all past and present injections are administered under the provisions of “Emergency Use Authorization”, conferring indemnification to the supply chain.

    Members of the New Republic are a bit harder to involuntary retire, as mobile flanking positions, the local means of regenerative food, water, and energy production, and coordinated local self-defense, provide for optimal outcomes.

    By design.

      I don’t subscribe to the idea that they have released or will release any virus or disease.

      Were they to do so, they would put themselves at risk, too.

      IMO, the so-called virus was not a virus, but a case of statistical manipulation and media bullshit, starting with the comically fake Wuhan newsreels.

      The shots are a different story, and serve two functions (that I can deduce, at least): poisoning and forced compliance with the coming pass system (where they can get it).

        In whom to trust, that is the question, Owl. Not hard for me to believe your hypothesis at all. It fits the model, for surety. Chris Martenson, on the other hand, says the virus is very real, if human engineered. *sigh*

        • Night Owl January 7, 2022 at 10:36 am #

          I know what you mean, but until we see the virus isolated, and until we have a test that provably detects the so-called virus, I will believe nothing else.

          Those are two basic facts that all of us have a right to, and it is very telling that info. on both is concealed, and that we now know they lied about cases using a test that the CDC admits is worthless.

            Doesn’t that give people the impression that you can be sick without knowing it, and that you desperately need those tests to tell you weather you are healthy or not?

            This reminds me of the AIDS crisis. They started making the distinction between “HIV positive” and “full-blown AIDS”, which was very confusing to the general public.

            If someone has gotten sick with a virus, say they have the virus!

            Addendum: it is very likely that both 20th Century scourges, Spanish flu and “polio”- sudden onset paralytic poliomyelytis – came from screwed up experimental vaccine attempts.

            The over-vaccination racket came into power covering up its mistakes, and then exploiting them. Criminal all around.

            (Spanish flu, from a vaccine given to Army soldiers in Kansas, who took it to the trenches of WW1, where it mutated and came back with them.

            Sudden onset paralysis was unknown until the 20th C. From a handful of cases to a sudden explosion in Brooklyn. Historic polio left children with a withered limb, no known mentions of sudden paralysis.)

          “In whom to trust”, that is a misleading question. Don’t trust anybody. Evaluate all information you get regardless of the source. Nobody is right all the time. And hardly anybody is wrong all the time – unless they are trying to be.

          Don’t trust Fauci. Don’t trust RFK jr. Read or listen to what they have to say and decide whether it rings true to you.

          RFK jr. seems to think the “Covid virus” is real. Does that mean that if we think “the virus” is a hoax that we should reject what he says about Fauci? Or if we find RFK jr’s characterization of Fauci credible (notice I didn’t say, “believable”?), does that mean we have to accept that “the virus” is real? There’s babies in that there bath water.

            rightly so, an African mother holds the record at 38 children;

            I’ve met a black American with 45 aunts and uncles, 20 by grandpa’s wife #1, 25 by wife #2;

            the black father of the most children in the US has 43 illegitimate children;

            illegitimate breeding is a cottage industry in the US (the male is called ‘the breeder’ and passed around groups of women for welfare);

            the global South never invented so much as an alphabet, overpopulation is not a Northern problem;

            -the reduction concept was almost certainly the basis for banning safe DDT in equatorial countries.)

            Bushmeat eaters, bloody from butchering monkeys to eat, picked it up either from butchery or those transfusions;

            Cuban soldiers picked it up from fraternizing in a cluster of villages in Angola;

            Those thrown in prison spread it like wildfire in a contained environment;

            Those infected prisoners were deliberately released in the Mariel boatlift and sent to the gay kingdom of Key West, Florida;

            Gay promiscuity spread it across the US as the “gay disease”.

            Fauci bungled and murdered his way into a private fiefdom of his own. He’s a perfect placement for the WEF to expand their Cull beyond the first trial runs of African and gay control groups.

            “Auto Immunity Deficiency Syndrome”. The vaxx gives us AIDS, pathogenic priming leaving our fat, sick, weak, overmedicated, overvaccinated, sugar-poisoned kids and selves wide open to the Cull.

            @Alzeaebo RFK’s book goes deeply into the possibilities of what the Aids thing was/is. To much to summarise here but addiction to poppers (yes big pharma product) seems to play a huge part in the American aids experience.

        The polio story linked above is an interesting read, and relevant in an “on background” sense.

        Confounding of “virus” with action of various environmental toxins. Or possible combination of toxicity allowing entry of opportunistic viruses.

        Not mentioned recently is the fact that both Wuham and Bergamo have some of the most polluted air on the planet.

        Maybe we have to widen our attempts to understand the origins of covid19 by looking for not one viral cause but more than one cause, or a toxic/lethal synergy between environment and “vector”?

        Population-level comordities, so to speak?

          If I might reframe it slightly, apply a systems approach.

          Existing in isolation is possible, but synergistically existing opens up so many more possibilities.

          That synergy is properly called “full spectrum warfare”.

        NO: Agreed. The real aim – as the psychopaths have never flinched from telling us – is a world rebuilt in their image. That essentially means enslaving the world’s population. The “pandemic” and the digital passes serve that purpose admirably. It might well fade away over the coming months, but the globalists will never give up the digital passes.

        • Night Owl January 7, 2022 at 11:38 am #

          Yes, Hereward. Passes are the primary aim. The entire Great Reset fails if the passes fail.

          • Hereward the Woke January 7, 2022 at 1:15 pm #

            Night: The digital stuff scares the brown stuff out of me. Few people realize that, Covid or no Covid, we are on the cusp of a technological revolution of staggering proportions. The new technologies just around the corner will allow the total control that the Hitlers and Stalins could only have dreamt of. Like all new technologies, these developments always start off in the possession of the “elites”, in this case, those sentimental old humanists, Zuckerberg, Gates, et all. If we don’t grab control of them and ensure they are used only for benevolent purposes, we will end up like the Chinese. Or worse.

          • Islander January 7, 2022 at 2:30 pm #

            Reading about developments in Austria, Australia, Germany, and also here in New England also scare the s— out of me.

            Meanwhile people seem to be walking cluelesslyinto the trap as they lecture the deplorables who refuse to be jabbed with unknown substances. Soon the same people will be lecturing the rest of us as to joys of being digitally connected.

          • Night Owl January 7, 2022 at 2:47 pm #

            I agree, Hereward.

            I think one reason some people have a hard time comprehending what is happening is that they cannot comprehend what we face, due to the fact that we in the West have lived lives of relative comfort, removed from the horrors of history and separated from places on earth where humans suffer en masse.

            Our own psychopaths have never gone away, however.

            The technological revolution we are undergoing will make it possible to bring great suffering back to the West. We will look like China if we fail to stop the criminals.

        • Alzaebo January 8, 2022 at 3:29 am #

          Absolutely. This is the ancient vision, the Perfected World under the One Supreme.

          Not an entity. A culture.
          The Face of a People.

          Perfected, because their rule is eternal.
          Immortal, because the tribe is immortal.
          One God the Highest- theirs, above all others.

          The People who generate the Christ god have a hidden weakness- they project their view onto others, who have gods of their own.

          Monotheism is a curse and a crime, it has foundered all our understanding of the World Beyond. Nature must have diversity, lest the Blight, the black mold that creeps up the walls of the greenhouse, take it all.

          A monoculture means one plague, one rust, one virus, one Blight–kills the entire field. There are many Peoples, many packs– each generate their own Gods, the gods do not create them.

          Monotheism, a political tool, has inverted what /our/ ancestors knew, turned it all upside down- and against /us/.

          The rest are no threat to the Blight, they are vulnerable to it. Some, far more susceptible. Infected, by the Blight.

          /We/ are the antibody, the successful combination to fight it and achieve the greater imperative, the purpose for which a biosphere forms in the first place: the Seeding layer.

          Physical DNA cannot cross the impossible void; energy, as radiant DNA, can, and does. As we create the gods, they, in turn, will someday recreate us, a divine spark, a Seed, of radiant panspermia.

          But first, the antibody that opens the Gate must survive. Nature is beyond morality, rather, a child’s picture of morality.

          • Alzaebo January 8, 2022 at 4:01 am #

            Agh. Forgive me. I see I’ve skipped ahead a few chapters.

            For most, even for many here, their values, given by Daddy, were replaced by a malevolent Stepdaddy in a mask.
            Thus, we were blinded.

      • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 6:52 pm #

        If a future release of some sort of malady is planned, and the cure is already in hand, the risk is low for the releasers as they already are likely using the cure.

        Turning the clock back a bit, if the developers of whatever has likely been floating around making people ill knew HCQ, ivermectin and a number of other common items existing in abundance could easily be stockpiled and used, why would they not be prepared?

        Going in a similar direction, congressional staff and their employers (for example) are exempt from “the mandates”. How many have a weekly prophylaxis regimen they have followed since possibly 2019? It would have flown under the radar as the supplies were stockpiled.

        Let’s choose August 2019. In the US, the rest of 5eyes and the EU, absent a shortage of veterinary supply, which did not occur, ivermectin was under the radar. So was hydroxychloroquine. Zinc? Alphabetically it was just an item at the end of the list on the multivitamin label. IMO it could easily have been stockpiled in the years preceding 2019. By August it was being delivered. This stuff is dirt cheap and out of patent. Not worth a single blip on a financial radar screen.

        And if anyone did notice, nothing an adequate number of dollars, a visit by some shady characters, and maybe a few “unrelated and untimely” accidents, suicide and “natural causes” deaths couldn’t correct.

        Kary Mullis died rather suddenly/unexpectedly in August 2019. He the lead vocalist of the ” PCR?, it was never meant to diagnose anything, (by the way, I invented it)” choir. An unabashed critic of one A. Fauci for decades.

      • Alzaebo January 8, 2022 at 4:15 am #

        The Kazakh told me China has been printing maps with Kazakhstan as a Chinese territory for years.

        Interesting historical note: Genghis Khan was a Crusade. Chinese territory extended to Turkish borders after the Chinese overthrew Greek Bactria, Alexander’s descendents in Afghanistan, in the 1st Century.

        Genghis sought to avenge the China’s defeat by the Islamics at the Yalu River in 740 AD. These beserkers were so psychotic they even scared the Mongols.

        Also, Kazakhstan was the home of the Baikanour space works, and storage location of the USSR’s nuclear stockpiles. Iran bought quite a few of the old missiles.

        • Alzaebo January 8, 2022 at 4:40 am #

          I’m in the “China is in on it” crowd now.

          State Kapitalism has poisoned their meagre waters, land and air.
          Foreign-directed Communism cost them a generation with One Child policy.

          What’s the historical solution to an untenable homeland?

          Lebensraum.

          Siberia is empty.
          An emptied-out North America has room for 300 million restive Chinese, as it had for restive, overcrowded Europe.

          No, the Chinese didn’t start this.
          But, the American horse is ailing, being murdered, it has accomplished its job, meeting the same fate as the Russian horse. The riders have found a new horse, one technically proficient, yet hungry, and more obedient to diktat.

          The Chinese, having been broken by the masters, was offered a deal they couldn’t refuse. They have no other choice.

          So, who’s up for little fentanyl, some Wuhan tourists, and spies on student visas? As well as a butt-ton of industrial production, with CALPERS leading the flood of “parallel investment” in what was a 1950s bicycle economy.

    Whoopi also obviously still doesn’t get it, that Big Food/Big Medicine are lying to us about what a healthful diet consists of.

            Selco wrote something along the line of how, once a person in such a situation realizes they will die, their approach to situations changes. They will live differently and become more dangerous.

            One could surmise a group of people with nothing left to lose who refuse subservience could become very dangerous. The next horizon in their lifetime might never come, and they accept the reality. At this point I’d go for “it’s all bets are off” time.

            Some will likely choose the easy way and experience the result of conforming, although it might be guaranteed subservience and ultimately terminal.

            Others will make a different choice. It might also be terminal, but not subservient.

            80 years from now, if records still exist with people who can read them, some might be figuring out they are experiencing a crisis with a similar face from the past, just a different twist on the theme.

        It is odd how they now have hard evidence that Trump attempted to call in The National Guard on Jan. 6th but Pelosi and Bowser refused.

        Why are there only a handful of Republicans like Jim Jordan and Bates wanting to call Pelosi and Bowser to testify?

      • JohnAZ January 7, 2022 at 12:48 pm #

        Uh huh.

        Joseph Smith has told the world that a great civilization existed in South America that was visited by Jesus Christ.

        The Mormon Church has spent beaucoup de bucks trying to find evidence of this civilization.

        No results.

        Here goes! Muslim is the fastest growing religion in the world. Number two is Latter Day Saints.

        Does that say something about the gullibility of the world’s population today?

        BTW, both are religions based on the exercise of power.

        • Blackbird January 7, 2022 at 1:24 pm #

          Apparently the Mormon Church has never visited Sacsayhuaman, Ollantaytambo, or Tiahuanaco. Obvious evidence of a civilization capable of stonework that can’t be replicated by our current technically-proficient civilization. I don’t know the criteria for “great” but Andean civilization of ~1,000 to ~1,500 years ago had some pretty “awesome” accomplishments.

          Whether Jesus ever visited them, well, it’s kinda hard to prove He ever visited anyone.

          I have long considered Mormonism to be Islam for modern Americans.

        Sorry to be repetitious, but this Martin Armstrong interview is a must-watch, esp. for the WEF-watchers here

        A corrective to all those who deride Schwab as a Bond character and also deride those who take the Schwab project seriously. The WEF program aims, among other things, to end democracy.

        Open your eyes! Schwab has ALREADY placed his indoctrinated cadres into pivotal roles who have gone far to accomplishing much of the WEF program—the foundational conditions, so to speak. Just listen to Trudeau and Macron openly enmerdant their citizens.

        As Americans we must keep these sleepers out of our government, out of our institutions at all costs. This “creature” (cf. Creature of Jekyll Island) arose partially in Cambridge, Mass, at Harvard.

        Speaking of The Creature from Jekyll Island, Griffin’s thesis is that the IMF, the World Bank, etc. are sleeper socialist orgs who long-term aim is to impose world socialism. I still don’t know what to make of this, although he cites plenty of sources regarding thepolitics and views of the Webbs, and John Maynard Keynes.

    Speaking of Dr. Fauci, I have been talking about the strange behavior of some of our elected officials around viruses before,

    For instance, the Zika virus, when a senator from New York got very, very concerned about a disease in Brazil, that was going to come to Florida.

    Chuck Schumer and Florida. Doesn’t Florida have its own senators?

    Anyway, the media was consumed by Zika for a time, pregnant women in Florida were made afraid of going outdoors, Bill Gates got involved, a baby with a pointed head was shown over and over on TV…

    Then, nothing.

    Here’s what I’ve been missing, and I was reminded by something a woman named Stacey Rudin wrote- the infamous Dr. Fauci was up to his neck in that episode as well.

    Top Obama doc Fauci to Congress on Zika funding: ‘Act now’

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top Obama administration doctor, urged Congress on Sunday to promptly agree to appropriate an additional roughly $2 billion to fight against Zika — the latest in the back and forth between the White House and GOP-led House about funding against the deadly virus.

    “We have to act now,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told “Fox News Sunday.”

    House Republican leaders have argued that the federal government has enough money now to fight the virus and that additional funding should come through the regular appropriations process this fall.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/top-obama-doc-fauci-to-congress-on-zika-funding-act-now

    I remembered the event, but not the name of the fraudster working with Chuckie.

    BTW Stacey is another one of the heroes who have been on top of the scamdemic from the start.

    • David Webb January 7, 2022 at 11:09 am #

      Fauci has a long history of fear-mongering. In the ’80s he was pushing the narrative that AIDS was easily transmittable through heterosexual intercourse, which turned out to be a very rare occurrence. It’s almost as if he’s been waiting decades for the right opportunity to step into the role of savior of a nation in the throws of a deadly epidemic.

      • Hereward the Woke January 7, 2022 at 11:22 am #

        Problem with Fauci is that he went from patients to patents. Much less contact with the smelly peasants and much more lucrative. However, it means that he has no experience of real life in general, let along real medical practice. I doubt the SoB could even administer an injection. Which is probably a good thing.

        • Beryl of Oyl January 7, 2022 at 11:45 am #

      They’ve been trying to get this pandemic hoax going for years.

      Tried in 2009, Wodarg put a stop to it.

      Tried in 2014, with Ebola. No go.

        Good catch.

        I wonder if they’d have bothered with the covid if Trump had not been elected, or if they’d managed to take him out with their Russia hoax.

        • Blackbird January 7, 2022 at 1:32 pm #

          Yes.

          “Covid” is/was not about getting rid of Trump. “Covid” is about getting rid of us.

          In my opinion, it was necessary to have Trump in office as a wedge to divide the US population. Anti-Trumpers could be relied upon to be fervently pro-vaxx. Pro-Trumpers can be demonized as Nazi Typhoid Marys. Pro-Trumpers, mobilized by Trump’s “America First” lies can be counted on not to go along with the Great Reset and the Plandemic that is driving it – identify, isolate, liquidate.

        • MaryQueen January 7, 2022 at 7:18 pm #

          I wondered why Clinton was removed and Trump allowed to ‘win’ in 2016. I’m sure he got the vast majority of the votes, but as we’ve seen, since 2000, that doesn’t mean much. They install who they want to install.

          I bet the engineers of all this gamed it out and realized they could use the outrage on the left over a Trump win in a big way. And they did.

          • MaryQueen January 7, 2022 at 7:20 pm #

    “… the madness probably has its roots in the slow-motion train wreck of our techno-industrial economy. The managerial class can surely sense it and see it coming, but they don’t have a clue what to do about it. So, in desperate need of some signifying ritual, they’re left performing a grand-scale Chinese fire drill like drunken sophomores of yore — a flurry of pointless, attention-seeking activity.”

    inclined to agree that at elite levels there’s at least as much flailing as skillful masterminding going on… we’ll find out before too long…

    it’s almost scarier, i think, maybe, to view great-reset activities as doomed to fail and incompetently conceived and inacted, rather than as ingeniously planned and likely to whip the masses with ease into some fiendishly ordered new system.

      Gustaf: they might be in command or they might not. But history shows that even people who think they are in command of events are usually not. Look at August 1914. Every European leader saw the outbreak of war as a solution to their nation’s problems. Fast forward to 1918. Most of them were gone, and even the victors, Britain and France, were financially and socially exhausted, and had to step aside for the new superpower, the US. They are in command or they are not: but the results will be same. Total breakdown and chaos.

        That’s been the goal of capitalism – and most corporations – at least since the Luddites smashed the machines in the early 19th Century.

        I guess these days corporations want to get rid of the expensive managerial and technical staff, and just have the low-wage jobs left – because they are a lot cheaper than full-steam robot automation.

    I had a colleague of mine die suddenly last weekend while playing hockey. He was 49, very fit, didn’t drink, played college baseball, etc. He had heart pains while playing hockey, so he drove to the hospital, but died on the way.

            Good observation, Mary.

            What is fully vaccinated, anyway. IMHO! it is two shots. The booster seems to be an adder.

            As I have pointed out over and over, the antibody counts in two shot, fully vaxxed people is gone. Why is everyone so surprised that just as many fully Vaxxed folks are getting Omicron as unvaxxed.

            Here goes, the vast majority of the population right now is effectively non-vaxxed.

      It would be interesting to see how many under, say, 40 die suddenly in normal times in order to compare numbers. Did a lot of people die suddenly like this, but because we weren’t in a “pandemic”, they went unnoticed by the wider world? There have been a lot of comments too about the Indiana insurance boss talking about a significant rise in unclassifiable deaths in people of working age. I suspect we are staring at something pretty horrible here, but it would be great to hear from some of the experts on our side.

        ‘but it would be great to hear from some of the experts on our side.’

        I very strongly agree, but unfortunately I have learned not to hope for these possible ‘experts’ to be heard. The suppression of Scientists, Doctors, and others is so extreme, it helps to explain why so many bloggers, start writing really crazy stuff. (or not so crazy !). It looks hopeless (though I hope it isn’t). It is nice to see JHK talking somewhat optimistically though. His keen insight and comments really help in this dark time we are in.

    There’s a picture going around, small children in some sort of bubble suit, someplace in Asia.

    I hope it isn’t China, because every time the Chinese stage a ridiculous ‘intervention’, we copy it here without question.

    Anyone remember the returning physician with Ebola, wearing the moon suit?

    Anyone not recognize that the Ebola nuttery was a dress rehearsal?

    A doctor in a moon suit, meanwhile an infected doctor wanders all over NYC without a care.

    That wasn’t so long ago.

      Beryl, Zika was an interesting exercise as well. It affected maybe 10 people over here in the US but the media and the research agencies went into a perfect cytokine storm and gorged on a flurry of emergency funding and fear of microencephalopathy.

    Good morning everyone. I love your writings, but this time I do not agree with some conclusions here. “The Powers That be” will never give up their power without a fight. Almost every single govt. has broken the Nuremberg Code, specially article 25 I believe. None of them are going to hang. Already, there is talk of doing away with it. LMAO. Evidently it takes about 80 years for all the shit to float to the top, hence the “Fourth Turning”. Another way of saying it is it’s time to flush the toilet. These people will never give up their power willingly lest they hang for their crimes. Problem is no one in this country really gives a shit, as far as I can tell. The only protest and riots I see are the ones being paid for by Soros and Company. We use to be the “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave”. What a fucking joke.

    When I was young, my first cousin, who was also my best friend, was killed in Nam, one of the first advisers to do so. I was too young to enlist, so instead, I cut school often, hitchhiked to Berkeley and beat up as many anti-war protesters I could get my hands on. Yes, I drank the Kool Aid. Totally believed my president that we had to stop the spread of communism. That was just the start of the many many lies told to me by our govt. What I believe now after so many lies and so many years, is that my govt has never told me the truth about anything. Floride(deadly poison) in the water. Geoengineering our planet(Why? anybody ever ask?) Too many trees to see the forest. Too may lines drawn in sand, first little breeze and holy shit, no more line. We have now become the Land of the Woke, Home of the Scaredy-cat punk ass little bitchez……Still “Laughing My Ass Off”.

      The Nuremberg Code (1947)
      Permissible Medical Experiments
      The great weight of the evidence before us to effect that certain types of medical experiments on human beings, when kept within reasonably well-defined bounds, conform to the ethics of the medical profession generally. The protagonists of the practice of human experimentation justify their views on the basis that such experiments yield results for the good of society that are unprocurable by other methods or means of study. All agree, however, that certain basic principles must be observed in order to satisfy moral, ethical and legal concepts:

      The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

      The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.
      The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
      The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results justify the performance of the experiment.
      The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
      No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
      The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
      Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability or death.
      The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
      During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.
      During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgment required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.
      For more information see Nuremberg Doctor’s Trial, BMJ 1996;313(7070):1445-75.

      You are just noting what the main struggle has been forever in this country, how much power the Federal government has vs. the states vs, the people. Hamilton and Jefferson argued it in the cabinet of Washington and the press of the time. Power has been funneling toward the Feds ever since the CW. Lincoln was a hero for saving the Union, but the consolidation of Federal power has been going on ever since. FDR, being enabled by the Depression and WW2, was a great acceleration of the rise of the Deep State. The almost total victory of the Deep State was shown by the successful repudiation of Trump. Nails continue to be driven into the coffin with the Jan.6 nonsense.

        Good synopsis of the country’s evolution from a Republic in 1789 to a Mob Democracy in 2021.

        Plato brilliantly explained why democracy is one of the worst forms of government ever devised. All democracies degenerate into hot messes where great masses of greedy, indolent, dolts elect corrupt mediocrities to office whose mandate is to rip-off society”s producers and redistribute the loot to the lazy, shiftless, conniving, grifters.

        Inevitably, every democracy collapses due to loose fiscal policy, monetary debasement, and gross incompetence of the political class.

        The Founding Fathers were well aware of this risk and they tried their best to build safeguards into our Constitution, but the wrecking crews commenced work on tearing them apart as early as 1803 when the Supremes made the first unwarranted grab for unconstitutional power with the Marburg vs. Madison decision.

        We are lucky that Liberty has not yet been completely extinguished in America, although I would venture that none of the Founders would think we are very free today in comparison to the levels of freedom that were enjoyed by citizens of this country two centuries ago. We are like the frogs in the proverbial boiling pot. It keeps getting warmer but it never occurs to most people that TPTB just keep turning up the burner beneath them.

        JohnAZ,

        The Radical Republicans of the time (19th century Progressives) deified Lincoln it’s true but he was no hero to half this country, which was conquered & laid waste by the other half (actually a small fraction of the other half which mobilized the rest of that industrial half against the Southern nation). I won’t call the whole a nation because it’s never been a nation.

      “The Powers That be” will never give up their power without a fight. Almost every single govt. has broken the Nuremberg Code, specially article 25 I believe. None of them are going to hang. Already, there is talk of doing away with it.”

      I’m in total agreement with what you said here. The Nuremberg trials were conducted by reasonibly-moral governments who punished a carefully selected group of war criminals for their disgusting crimes against humanity.

      Today, there don’t appear to be any remaining, reasonibly-moral governments willing to conduct the necessary trials required to punish the psychopaths who are currently committing massive, deadly crimes against humanity on a global scale. Rapidly increasing social, economic and political upheavals will make today’s problems seem insignificant by comparison.

      Unfortunately for America, Josef Mengele has been replaced by a new Angel Of Death who operates with total governmental support as he continues to conduct inhumane medical experiments on his millions of pharmaceutical prisoners. Sadly, this triple and quadruple-vax madman has now boosted his deadly bio weapon plague to the extent that it now includes our children.

    The shots in Australia are going down to three month intervals. The shots that don’t work.

    • GreenAlba January 7, 2022 at 11:29 am #

      Fits with the ‘advocacy’ theory: seems Aussies didn’t get so many of the lethal shots – possibly a high percentage of placebos, so are advocates for the vaxxes.

      Enter boosters, stage left, to top up a willing population.

      Look on the bright side – you-know-who will soon have had half a dozen shots. Their government has ordered enough of the vaxxes (developed for a strain of the virus that doesn’t exist anywhere) to give every Aussie 10 boosters.

      • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 11:46 am #

        Are you suggesting a “bait & switch” with lots of early-on placebo shots to soften up the perception in time to introduce “the boosters” containing various manner of nasty stuff?

        • GreenAlba January 7, 2022 at 1:04 pm #

          Yes, but it’s not my perception. It was voiced by Mike Yeadon – don’t know it he was the first. John O’Looney mentioned it too, but I don’t know whose speculation it was initially.

          It makes perfect sense. You need to watch that sitting of the Corona Investigative Committee that Night Owl linked to. The livestream is over now, so you can see it on the website archive as Sitting 86 (‘The fog is lifting’). Really, it’s required viewing if you want to know how they’re doing this.

          As has been pointed out, if you want to lower the population this way, you can’t kill everyone at once or it would be too obvious.

            The session with Yeadon (I’ve seen the last half hour or so and am working my way through the whole session from the beginning (it’s over 6 hours) so need to see the start of Yeadon’s interview, which I will get to.

            But the Yeadon chunk I saw is an expansion of Wolfgang Wodarg’s piece in the Sam White session. The graphs are incontrovertible (and are visibly clearer in this presentation), showing the chronological pattern of the separate rollout of the lethal batches from Moderna, Pfizer and Janssen. AZ isn’t available in the US, so it’s annoying that there’s no evidence for them. The UK Yellow Card system doesn’t allow for the tracing of batch numbers, as far as I know.

            Ernst Wolff also speaks in this session (for about 40 mins), as does Dr Lee Merritt, whose contribution is really worth watching too.

            I have technical difficulties with the videos in the evening, so will watch the rest tomorrow. The footage is also available divided into sections – I saw Wolff and Merritt in separate videos, but I’m having problems just now – must be my internet connection.

        The entire future of the mRNA approach of future medical development is at risk right now. You have not seen anything yet.

        We may soon see what happens when booster after booster is given to people, as each inflammation episode builds on the inflammation history.

        IMHO, each evolution will take out its % of marginal folks, folks who just need a trigger to set off problems. Do I think we will know what happens with each evolution, we have not even heard what has happened with episode one.

        • GreenAlba January 7, 2022 at 1:14 pm #

          I agree, it’s a salami-slicing exercise, with plausible deniability (until this evidence from the analysts of the VAERS data). People are dying in dribs and drabs with no obvious connection to the vaccines.

          From my own anecdotal experience:

          (1) husband’s collapse a week after the booster;
          (2) McCullough says the covid recovered are at 4 times the risk of adverse effects compared to people who haven’t had covid: friend of mine had covid in 2020, got vaxxed spring 2021; had heart attack in June.
          (3) getting my bathroom done by a guy whose father is really ill – had sepsis. Vaxx increases risk of sepsis by lowering immune system function;
          (4) today lunch with friend who told me about another friend with shingles. Told hubby, who said there’s a lot of shingles about just now – also an effect of the disabling the immune system so that latent bugs like herpes ‘break through’ more often.

          All anecdotal, but if you looked out your window in Germany and saw trains full of rounded-up people going to who knows where, that’s anecdotal too, until it becomes history.

          The thing is there are no VAERS reports done for the shingles, sepsis, collapsed husbands, friends with heart attacks, unless someone joins the dots. Most people, including the docs, aren’t joining the dots. My husband didn’t think anything of the fact that there’s a lot of shingles around just now. To him it’s just an observation without a question mark attached.

          • GreenAlba January 7, 2022 at 1:22 pm #

            And you can’t prove causality (unless someone drops dead within a day or two of the vaxx) so they’ve played a blinder.

          • TaxDonkey January 8, 2022 at 5:37 pm #

            GA, Interesting you mention shingles. My experience with covid in March 2020, I was around people who had it but I never got covid or even a cold. But then very oddly, I got shingles for one terrible week. Chris Martenson reports the same odd thing.

            John, have you thought about taking prophylactic ivermectin over the winter?

            I got some from the internet (at considerable expense!) in case any of my family got covid (that was before my daughters refused to be persuaded not to get vaxxed). I’m wondering, given I also will have a depleted immune system, if it would be sensible to take them prophylactically for a few months.

          • Not_GeorgeT January 7, 2022 at 8:55 pm #

            Giving consideration to prophylaxis through to the Spring at least. Not quite there, mostly because I take a number of supplements which have worked not only so far, but before this segment began 2+ years ago.

            Part is the decision which route to take among a number of choices. What I currently do meet/exceeds Zelenko’s OTC polypill mix, for example. It’s somewhat of a cost/benefit situation. The cost is not necessarily measured in currency.

            Taking supplements requires some research. I’ve been in Asian pharmacies where they have large letter signs in English cautioning the items for sale are not necessarily without risk.

            Uptake is an issue. For example, ivermectin taken with a meal moves slower through the GI tract, increasing potential absorption vs on an empty stomach were it moves along faster.

      • Wizard of the Saddle January 9, 2022 at 3:37 pm #

        If you get folks used to getting popped with booster shots every three months it will eventually be child’s play to slip in the “kill shot” during one of these intervals…….the shot that slowly kills you over the course of a year or two. By the time anyone notices it will be too late for most. Only the unvaxxed vaccine skeptics would be spared, which is why FORCED JABS through mandates are being pushed. Once you get one or two jabs into people, all resistance from them is liable to collapse. Tgen you give them the kill shot as well.

    We can see the powers that be tried to kill a few birds with a single stone. The lockdowns rationed energy, whether done consciously or subconsciously. The rest of this crap was an attempt at full-spectrum dominance over the public. They want everything digitized, literally down to the last tomato for the purpose of “increased tracking efficiency” (their words, not mine). Along with the tomatoes, we also must be digitized to receive central bank digital currency and to pay taxes on it based on social credit scores. This is not a conspiracy theory but rather openly discussed. If the magic virus goes away, they will try something else, maybe with even more desperation and myoclonal jerking. The green energy ‘revolution’ seems to be fading with less controversy, but the scamdemic is too near and dear to their hearts. They will not release it easily.

          On this I am in total agreement. Aristocracy is far superior to Democracy. Democracy is for chumps and republics are easily subverted by democratic elections. The best form of government would be an Arisocratic Republic led by an enlightened class of propertied men of high character and education heavily leavened with a good dose of noblesse oblige.

          This was essentially what the leaders of the late, great Southern Confederacy were aiming for but. It is a damn shame that the wrong side won that war. The entire country is now far worse off for it.

          I’d much rather be living in the Confederate States of America today than in this deracinated, mongrelized, savage, multikulti, communistic mess that is the USA in the 21st century.

          But, who knows, if the wokism in Washington continues unabated, the South may yet rise again and assume it’s proper place in the world as a free and independent country.

          The fracturing of the Soviet Inion and Yugoslavia provide contemporary examples of multiethnic states that could not hold it together. The USA will soon be added to that list, and several smaller nations will emerge from the smoking rubble, with the South being the most obvious one. Texas might be another, seeing how it is large enough and wealthy enough to go it alone, but I would expect it to be closely aligned with a re-emergent Southern Confederacy.

            The core of the USSR, Russia, survived, despite the West’s overt and covert pressures.

            Today, I could argue that Russia is, perhaps, the most “independent” nation in the world.

            Not the greatest living standard, by conventional, material measures. Certainly not the best weather.

            But perhaps the most self-sufficient.

            You can’t miss what you’ve never had. I’d say, for the average Russian, today is peak Russia.

            America is not self-sufficient, hence the need for our Imperial Troopers throughout the world. The USA needs finished goods, raw materials, energy, and… financing to keep going.

            China is not self-sufficient, the CCP needs the world as much as the world needs China’s wares.

            If America can survive the turbulence and come out the other end like Russia did, that would be a very good outcome.

            LOL Good luck with that! It’s darn hard to even find ten good men to run the local country club in most places – before it breaks into squabbles, fights, factions, and disharmony.

            Give people a little bit of power and they go feral – always.

            In fact Trump always reminds me of the second-hand car dealer in white shoes who gets to be golf club president by being a blowhard, and then turns the place to shit.

          • TaxDonkey January 7, 2022 at 2:55 pm #

            JAZ, well if you think about peak oil for example, at the top is the moment of most production and consumption right before taking a dive. Likewise, one can imagine peak globalist control, where they have apparent full-spectrum dominance. However one of the consequences of this complete institutional capture is that those same institutions have never performed worse nor have they ever enjoyed less confidence of the populace. This is likely the peak global moment before it all splinters into a bunch of pieces.

    • ianw January 7, 2022 at 11:53 pm #

      The lockdowns rationed energy, whether done consciously or subconsciously. The rest of this crap was an attempt at full-spectrum dominance over the public.

      I still believe that politicians in democracies are scared of elections and voters. I think for most politicians in most places, the pandemic has been a serious threat – governments get punished if the economy goes bad, and nobody cares that energy use and emissions are down.

      Even my modest local fruit & veg market has decent systems for tracking what they buy and what they sell – which is a good thing … increasing their efficiency, and income, and reducing waste.

      Politicians want a “return to normalcy”, not dominion over the masses – they know they’re on a hiding to nothing by either being too strict or too slack.

    The laborers have been managing the system my entire working experience. The managerial class has systematically disassembled labor, as for the managerial class McKinley Morganfield observed

      The managerial class is a product of the Liberal “everyone has to have a college education” push.

      The result is do you put college grads on the assembly line? Middle level management jobs are the useless jobs that result.

      The first jobs to go on RIFs are middle level management.

      Story time.

      In the hospital I worked for here, one floor manager managed to convince upper management that she needed an assistant to do the menial tasks she did not want to do. Soon, once the precedence was set, all the floor managers had their assistants. Six months later, corporate directed a cost reduction to each of the hospital CEOs. In a very smooth move, the hospital, in a two hour bloodbath, walked all the original floor managers out the door. The hospital never blinked.

      Watch out for one on one managerial structures, hard times come, one is leaving.

    I have a link here to an analysis of Dr. Scott Atlas’ book, which I have not read, except for a few small excerpts.

    As with the review I read by Jeffrey Tucker, you come away with a certain amount of sympathy for President Trump’s position. This does not mean that he didn’t make a mess of things or do things no one should ever do.

    The funny/not funny thing is, his enemies criticize him even though the things he did wrong are exactly the things they claim to believe are the right things to do.

    “Several months into this debacle, a radical idea dawned upon the President. What if he could find and promote a scientist, boasting impeccable credentials, willing to follow scientific best practices and the actual data? Might that scientist actually prevail? Might the data confirm the President’s instincts—driven as they were by common sense rather than scientific training?

    President Trump reached across the country to Stanford’s Dr. Scott Atlas. In A Plague on Our House, Dr. Atlas provides the details confirming that things were indeed as bad as they appeared to be. When President Trump staffed his White House Task Force and handed the reins to Vice President Pence, he essentially cut himself out of the equation. The Task Force’s two leading bureaucrats immediately seized decision-making authority; none of their nominal superiors were either willing or able to reclaim it. From early on, the press and much of the American public embraced the ubiquitous Dr. Fauci, while most governors deferred to the Task Force’s liaison to the states, Dr. Birx. A third key bureaucrat, CDC Director Redfield, supported their diktats while maintaining a (marginally) lower profile. No one else much mattered.”

    https://bda1776.substack.com/p/atlas-doesnt-want-to-shrug?r=6a3x3&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=email

    One thing the writer leaves out is the pernicious influence of Jared, who seems to have interfered with Dr. Atlas every bit as much as Pence’s people did.

    I’m coming more and more toward the conclusion that the vice president was not the passive, inept player in this debacle that he initially appeared to be.

    Though the blame ultimately goes to the president, Pence is the reason a shady character like Fauci ended up in charge of that task force, and stayed there.

    The president says that he couldn’t fire Fauci because the media wouldn’t like it.

    Who told him that?

    Notice the people involved also are people who stabbed him in the back in other ways.

    • Blackbird January 7, 2022 at 1:49 pm #

      Trump “couldn’t fire Fauci because the media wouldn’t like it.” Now there’s a man with a spine of steel. (Who voted for him after all? The media?)

    Has Covid vaccine efficacy turned negative?

    Data from highly vaccinated countries suggests strongly that the answer is yes; vaccinated people are at higher risk of infection from Omicron.

      Simple as that!

      Fully vaxxed means two shots!

      The vast majority of two shot people got them in early 2021. Their antibodies are gone!

      Unvaxxed = Fully vaxxed.

      Only 35% of “fully vaxxed” have gotten boosters.

      Simple arithmetic.

      Bottom line, the Vaxx program is damn near worthless.

      This does not include the potential effects of additional boosters on screwing up the immune system.

      I still stick to the position that vaccination (with or without a third shot) decreases your chances of being hospitalised, requiring ICU, or of dying. This is particularly true of the delta variant – but also the omicron.

      Plenty of data to show that proportionally, the unvaccinated are far more likely to become serious unwell, or to die from Covid-19.

      Waning vaccine effectiveness in the face of omicron’s transmissibility seems pretty clear though – but that’s harder to get data on, since it’s hard to prove the negative.

        Utter nonsense. The vaccines don’t prevent infection and they don’t prevent transmission.

        Now we watch the usual suspects trotting out the completely unprovable assertion that taking the jabs lowers the risk of death or makes the symptoms less severe.

        What horseshit.

        One cannot prove a negative and yet this is the illogical swill we are expected to swallow.

        Not buying it and I never will. I remain unjabbed, healthy, and happy. If I ever do contract Omicron I do not expect to be any more indisposed by it than I would be from catching the common cold.

    “What you’re actually seeing in the rhetorical hoo-ha over the January Sixth capitol riot is the main cattle-prod driving mob madness”

    Speaking of cattle, all-hat-and-no-cattle, Lyin’ Ted Cruz was apparently busy calling the dimwitted victims of FBI entrapment “terrorists.”

    He then went on a media outlet and clarified his remarks by saying he believes ANYONE who attacks police are terrorists.

    Thanks Ted.

    Now, you and your Goldman Sachs spouse may have many people in Texas and on the right fooled, but you don’t have everyone fooled.

    You’re a two-bit character actor, and you play your part stoking division and dissent like the trained bought and paid for lap dog that you are.

    Many conservatives woke up to the fact that the GOP of the Bush’s and the Cheney’s and the neocons was not their party.
    They voted most of them out.

    For any mobile calif native, over the years one can observe the constant shifting and rearrangement of agricultural production.

    So too in manufacturing, services, entertainment, etc: business enterprises are in a constant state of flux, developing new products and markets, adjusting employment levels and skills, etc

    But what segment of society is essentially moribund, unable to rapidly adjust to changing factors, wed to cherished ideals which were themselves just a product of intense propaganda of an earlier time and place that necessitated deep programming and repitition?

    How does one manage such a state of affairs with so many squawking about civil rights, agency, self determination and so on? I mean, take a look at this site for so many great examples.

    To wit: I was born thru no choice of my own, but I’m special and demand recognition and respect!

    It’s a tremendous challenge to anticipate the future, to lay out the building blocks of change, to gain control of critical institutions, launch the program and manage and adjust to real time events on the field of battle.

    Let’s take Australia for example. Problem one are entitled aggressive westerners who lucked into a bonanza of surplus resources. Expectations became embedded, with a broad set of assumed entitlements.

    The issue for thinkers is what happens when the party is over. Think the mob will go home quietly or riot in the streets? Now throw in nukes…

    Ok, look at how many years it took to set the table. First, have the idiot sheep voluntarily give up their arms. Then brainwash them to allow foreigners to gain govt power. Then introduce measures to control and curtail individual movement. Lastly, introduce a series of kill shots while flooding the country with waves of “new citizens”.

    See how it works? Recognize the genius? Like the farmers in the central valley who shifted from cotton to almonds, before long You are in control of an entirely different population, one more productive, more amenable to direction, one less resistant to demands and agitation.

    For a smart crowd, I’m always a little dismayed that commenters tend to fall back into personal worrisome anecdotes, or make some ego inflated claims about future independence.

    No one except Jarek seems to really look at the situation from an abstract strategic perspective. It’s abundantly clear what’s happening, why it’s happening and what the downside is if recalcitrant euros can’t be elimated.

          Vis-a-vis that changing the narrative thingie, isn’t that a pretty apt description of what the Covid religious fanatics have been doing since the “vaccines” made their appearance?

          The mRNA specials were going to:

          a. end the pandemic

          which when confronted by reality, morphed into the slightly less ambitious:

          b. prevent transmission of the virus

          which when confronted by the second dose of reality, became the even less ambitious:

          c. prevent severe illness

          The fact that Covid for the vast majority of people is already not a severe illness aside, the next iteration of the narrative almost certainly will head in the direction of:

          d. but mRNA vaccines have electrolytes.

          • King of Comedy January 8, 2022 at 10:57 am #

            Vaccinated or unvaccinated is an irrelevant metric. Almost all negative outcomes are among the old, the sick, and particularly in the US, the fat, pretty much like with every disease that has ever existed.

            Most decently healthy people, vaxxed or unvaxxed, will experience mild disease, if they contract Covid at all. A medical intervention with no long-term safety profile has to deliver significantly more than the placebo to make it worth even a small risk.

            But that’s what happens on all the lunatic fringe websites that get pushed on here … even when their predictions are wildly, ludicrously wrong, no-one ever acknowledges that they were wrong … they blame the deep state, the mainstream media, or even the fairies at the bottom of the garden.

      I was also born in California, during a time of plentiful resources.
      Except water, of course. We always knew that water was scarce and should be preserved.
      To Depression babies like my parents, and all the other parents of the Baby Boomers, used to making do with what they had and also to cooperating with their fellow citizens, being asked to conserve water during droughts was a perfectly reasonable request. We all did it.
      Conserving gas and lowering thermostats during the 70s? Yep, did that too, maybe with some grumbling.
      Compare and contrast to the people alive now, who feel entitled to move to California (or Nevada) and take 20 minute showers and who oppose conservation, because ”Damn the fish!”.
      Turn down the thermostat or turn off lights in unused rooms? No way!
      Meanwhile the citrus orchards, golden hills and berry farms of California have all been covered with McMansions, and the people who live there drive 50 miles to work on over-crowded freeways.
      But over-population? What are you, a Malthusian? There is no such thing as human population. Why, you could put the entire population of the world into the LA basin, and they would all fit!
      There is no such thing as over-population and if you say there is, you must hate humans.
      So, yeah, I agree that our overlords are taking things into their own hands.

        Why this simpleton’s conception of overpopulation?
        It is not about space to house them
        Nor available food to feed them

        It is to do about fresh water.

        It is to do about quality of life.

        We believe that humanity is entitled to pursue and enjoy a quality of life.

        The planet cannot sustain billions of people who enjoy steak, mahi mahi, champagne, vacations, single family homes, personally owned vehicles, good paying jobs, world travel, nature conservancy.

        It is impossible.

        Now dullards argue that the earth “has room” for billions more.

        Well certainly, but you will be living in the crowded pens and eating the low quality processed feeds once reserved for the cattle that have now been freed.

            i think, in the end, this kind of thinking (there is no overpopulation) plays into the hands of the resetters. the only way there is no overpopulation as oil declines… is if our future is to own nothing but a postage stamp and to eat crickets. kind of a schwaubian vision.

          The planet cannot sustain billions of people who enjoy steak, mahi mahi, champagne, vacations, single family homes, personally owned vehicles, good paying jobs, world travel, nature conservancy. It is impossible.

          Exactly … it’s not just a function f the number of human beings, but their level of consumption, and the power they have to achieve that level of consumption.

          I’m not sure either about that rosy picture of California in the 1950-1980 era … to me it was always the world epicentre of gross over-consumption, when resources were cheap and seen as unlimited.

          • gustafson.robert.22 January 7, 2022 at 5:28 pm #

            it is also not merely dependent on reduced consumption, because life on a lower-tech plane requires more acreage of open land per person.

            consumption today is not limited to consumption of land-resources but is consumption of underground fossil resources as well. When they are gone, we will be back to land-based resources alone.

            fossils enable us to live on the equivalent of… i dont know how many planets worth of resources simultaneously. many multiples.

            so its not about consuming less from a constant pool of resources, but surviving a drastically shrinking pool of resources.

            reducing consumption cannot possibly counterbalance the loss of fossil resources at current pop levels

            and global population does not fall easily. it’s never fallen except in ice-ages, cataclysmic events.

          • ianw January 8, 2022 at 2:52 am #

            […]reducing consumption cannot possibly counterbalance the loss of fossil resources at current pop levels

            I think this is a pretty big cop-out.

            If Americans (and others in the rich world – Europe, Japan, Australia, etc) dropped their consumption level to those of a Greek village or an Indonesian fisherman – then fossil fuels would last decades – centuries – longer.

            You’re giving the heavy consumers a free pass, I reckon.

            Gustaf, ” because life on a lower-tech plane requires more acreage of open land per person”

            I think you’re correct. There was a study pointing out that when the Hutu and the Tuts in Rwanda reached below a critical level of land/person is when all hell broke loose. You and I probably couldn’t tell the difference between a Hutu and a Tutu but they efficiently polarized based on resource issues.

            I don’t see how 8 billion + people are going to sustain themselves agriculturally if natural gas supplies (to make fertilizer) continue their decline.

            In our gross stupidity we almost single-handedly enabled that country to leap forward to an American standard of living and consumption in only half a century.

      I get the sense that, like the Boy who cried Wolf, these Leftwing media organs have completely run out of steam and presently exist only to provide raw meat video clips for FOX News to ridicule and refute on a daily basis.

      Even Soros and friends must be growing weary of having to subsidize these massive money losers who no longer get results.

    “The Party-of-Chaos put on a grand opera of lamentation Thursday to celebrate its unity in victim-hood — we wuz so traumatized by the riot!..”

    Our Nation has degenerated from The Greatest Generation to The Generation of Woe-Is-Me-And-You-Owes-Me.

    January 6th represents our age in a nutshell. Rampant essential fakery and political and media narrative spinning for their own self-interests.

    An ‘insurrection’ that wasn’t. A ‘serious threat to our Democracy’ that wasn’t. (We don’t HAVE a Democracy and this mob exercise in mutual selfie-taking was no threat to anything except good photography). January 6th represents the depravity of mass State corporate media conjuring out of thin air plots and threats and reasons to fear everything and everyone. And the depravity of the once proud Democrat Party that no longer represents real Democrats and has been the victim of a hostile takeover by various villains and malcontents.

    “This is the crisis of a managerial class that has lost its ability to manage anything…”

    WHEN DID the managerial class competently manage anything? Like all those bad bosses we’ve had in our lives that had big egos and didn’t know what the eff they were doing? Like all those ‘great statesmen’ politicians that represent everything and anything but We the People? It would be nice to some day HAVE a managerial class that knew the different between their rear ends and a hole in the ground.

    “…the vaccinations don’t work, and that they are racking up an impressive record of harming people.”

    The ‘impressive record of harming people’ proves that the maiming shots ARE working.

    “… a tsunami that will sweep away the large businesses next. The WalMarts, the automobile industry, the airlines, trucking, Amazon.com, major league sports, the fast-food empires, the oil industry, the mega-banks…”

    This is a Who’s-Who list of everyone who has sold out to a certain Asian nation with a large population with Social Credit scores.

    “But the mass of Americans… might simply be tired of lunacy.”

    Mass numbers of Americans have become ADDICTED TO lunacy. They now crave it like a daily drug fix. And when one is hooked on something, you always have to up the dose to get the high you’re looking for. Not a good sign for the future.

    “Meanwhile, the prudent will save their energy… and make plans for a changed economic landscape that will require all the classical virtues they can muster for creating a life worth living.”

    People will have to relearn a skill: How to think positively. Positivity has been under attack for decades now in The Greatest Nation and some will need to learn how to be positive or will need to learn it for the first time. That long journey that begins with that single step…

      The media, Democrats and other assorted conmen & women are determined to wring every last drop out of the January 6th ‘uprising.” The belief that the “hallowed halls of Congress were violated” is beyond satire. Is this the same building that lobbyists roam freely, writing memos (and checks) that their paid shills vote into law? Nancy P’s desk, a veritable shrine to corruption and incompetence, was sullied? But only by someone’s feet on it rather than the stuff on the sidewalk in her district in SF.

      Instead of tragedy and then farce, we have farce and can look forward to tragedy. People do need to relearn a skill but where are the teachers of these skills? We’ll muddle through and somehow learn how to grow a garden, raise a chicken and make big adjustments.

    “Covid” isn’t going away. We still have nine “variants” to go until we get to Omega. The game plan has been rolled out for all to see – unless they chose to look away, as most do. There is no rolling it back now. It’s a tempering process: apply the heat, then back off – repeat as necessary. Eventually all (statistically “all”…) will comply.

    We still have the mid-term selections to bugger. And buggered they will be, I’m sure. No in-person voting – the Psi variant is so deadly! The electoral results? Just as everyone hoped – a sweep by transgendered communist pedophiles!

    With Trump out of the picture, “Covid” is the new and improved wedge. The Deplorables have evolved into the Anti-vaxxers.

    The Ho gets “killed by white supremacists”. The Beast is appointed VP. The Big Guy falls victim to “Psi”. President Hildebeast, “Ok you deplorable anti-vaxxers, are you happy now? You just killed one of the greatest patriots that ever lived. You fucksticks are gonna get it now.” “Common Sense Gun Control”. Vaxx Pass. Internet throttled. (Dust off the mimeograph machine Mr. K.)

    And I guess that’s my condensed prediction for 2022. Didn’t wanna steel Mr. K’s thunder last week, so I waited a week to check the trajectory of current events. Our trajectory? Watch the last few minutes of Thelma and Louise.

        Not sure I agree that unwarranted optimism makes anything better. You might feel better, but the situation hasn’t changed. Hope can lead one into not making the appropriate preparations.

Hope is exactly what compels one to make the appropriate preparations while lack of hope has the opposite effect. A man with no hope will stay in a jail cell for years not realizing that the door is was never locked. Not sure why Gazelle thinks I want therapy, he’s probably projecting.

    In March 2020 the Mighty Wurlitzer was playing with the stops pulled out, pushing Fear to the max. But I knew no one who died, mostly because I didn’t know anyone in a nursing home in the Dem states.
    Then in Dec 2020, as they rolled out the vaccines, they also rolled out the Scary UK Variant, to push people into taking the jabs.
    Everyone I knew who got covid got it then, but they all recovered within days. But the Fear was intense.
    Then came Delta, during the summer months which are traditionally NOT cold and flu season. It was said to attack children, who were out of school, so had no way to transmit it. But the vaccines were about to be extended to children, so……No one questioned these absurdities. I know people who were holding out on the vaxes, but succumbed to the Fear of Delta.
    So they lied, every time, in order to push their agenda.
    Now they are telling us that there is a new variant, a kinder, gentler virus, that only gives us a runny nose and will make us all immune.
    Ummm, except that for the first time in two years, I know people who are gravely ill, seriously ill, not-getting-better ill.

    CBC Journalist Quits; Admits Network Is ‘Deep State’ Propaganda

    “CBC’s Tara Henley, a longtime and respected mainstream media journalist from Toronto, has resigned from her job with CBC while admitting the network has become infiltrated by Deep State operatives.” ~ Newspunch

    Why I resigned from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

    “In a short period of time, the CBC went from being a trusted source of news to churning out clickbait that reads like a parody of the student press…

    To work at the CBC in the current climate is to embrace cognitive dissonance and to abandon journalistic integrity.

    It is to sign on, enthusiastically, to a radical political agenda that originated on Ivy League campuses in the United States and spread through American social media platforms that monetize outrage and stoke societal divisions. It is to pretend that the ‘woke’ worldview is near universal — even if it is far from popular with those you know, and speak to, and interview, and read.

    To work at the CBC now is to accept the idea that race is the most significant thing about a person, and that some races are more relevant to the public conversation than others. It is, in my newsroom, to fill out racial profile forms for every guest you book; to actively book more people of some races and less of others.

    To work at the CBC is…” ~ Tara Henley (rest of article at Substack)

          Tried having a reasonable conversation with this piece of trash but he got his way and suggested he would be waiting for me outside.
          I suggested nothing would make me day more than to bounce his ugly head off the asphalt.
          Hilarity ensued since this fool had never had a white person call him on his bullshit.

          Dinosaurs dominated and proliferated for 165 million years, and would probably still be doing so if a rock hadn’t slammed into the Gulf of Mexico. Mammals would still be size of cats and ferrets, with about the same brains.

          I understand what is going on – that there is something of a big correction occurring, after centuries of oppression of non-white people.

          African-Americans have got into positions of power and influence in all manner of places, from academia, state & local politics, government agencies, the judiciary, media, and law enforcement. Latinx to some serious levels as well.

          They are using that power and influence to the extent that they can. Can you blame them? I also understand why the White Hats resent it and push back whenever they see things “going too far” – which is just about all the time.

          And the White Hats reserve most of their vitriol for those on the white team who go along with this correction behaviour. Also not unexpected.

          I saw some NBC Breakfast News this morning – all four anchorpersons were non-white. Network producers and managers must think this is the Zeitgeist – I must admit I prefer a balanced mix, but I don’t get a say.

            I seem to recall those of the darker persuasion doing things like invading and occupying the Iberian peninsula for seven centuries or taking so many Slavic peoples into captivity that the word slave draws its etymology from the practice or bringing the Black plague to Europe. Sounds oppressive to me. In the good old US, the vast disparity of black-on-White crime to White-on-black crime for the last half century at least is a more recent reminder of reality.

          The characteristics of groups of humans, are not the same as their individual members.

      • Suburban_elk January 9, 2022 at 10:08 am #

        Back before the current insanities, “Race” was used on multiple levels. Most typically on the level of ethny (ethnic group), but on the larger supergroup level, as well. Which is what is used for today, most of the time.

        But a phrase like “the Saxon race” or “the Nordic race” or “the English race” or “the German race” could still be used understood; or maybe not.

        It’s wasn’t dogmatic, what level it was used at; there was some flexibility.
