It was only a week ago that the American Medical Association (AMA) declared that the category formerly known as “sex” must be removed from US birth certificates — replaced, one supposes, by a tacit “to-be-determined” status in the great Progressive rush to extract the human race from the animal kingdom. Of course, that’s only one skirmish in the great Woke Jacobin war on the moiling masses who clutter up planet Earth, cramping the style of its transhuman-seeking ubermanagers, Bill Gates, Bezos, Daszak, Zuck, Jack, Elon, Klaus & Company, et al.

But this was the old redoubtable, white-coated AMA, you understand, not some claque of screeching, size-16, “body-positive,” gender-cryptic freshman hopping up and down outside the Yale faculty lounge to gurn at the sherry-sipping toffs within. Amateur diagnosticians out there might recognize it as another symptom of the hebephrenic toxicosis infecting America’s elites, especially those who work in realms supposedly based on facts, figures, and the general effort to make sense of life in our mysterious universe.

This national freak-show-of-the-mind might account for the many recent instances of science talking out of its booty-hole, led by its very personification, Dr. Anthony (“The Science”) Fauci, proud papa of SARS-CoV-2 (stage-name: Covid-19), with all its fabulous HIV and monkeypox gain-of-function bells and whistles. Dr. Fauci’s mighty, 20-year effort to bring forth this gift to mankind happens to coincide neatly with the collapse of advanced techno-industrial economies, a frightful condition that was already causing enough trouble in the world before Covid-19 marched in. Some suspect that Covid-19 is a contrived cover for all that, perhaps even an attempt to manage the journey down.

The Covid 19 panic, which has been driving formerly civilized societies crazy for eighteen months, prompted the bringing-forth of The Science’s follow-up project: vaccines to stop the spread of the virus. Enter the scene, these vaxes did, like, a day-and-a-half after Covid-19 pirouetted onstage. Hmmmm. Could someone have been working on those vaxes backstage before the dread virus even premiered? Were patents issued for them pre-dating January, 2020? Seems so. But never mind that for now. The vaxes were rolled out to fanfares over a year ago and those moiling masses of America, the superfluous holders of bachelor’s degrees in Oppression Studies — for whom, sadly, the world had run-out of paying positions — lined up like kids at Santa’s throne in Macy’s on Black Sunday for their Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson jabs. Whew…! That was a close call!

Or was it? Naw, not even close, actually. Since now it turns out that the jabs don’t seem to work that well. The official story got murkier last week when the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported internally to staff (it leaked) that “fully vaccinated people might spread the Delta variant at the same rate as unvaccinated people.” Whoopsie…. In a Delta variant outbreak on Cape Cod last month, three-quarters of the infected were fully vaxed-up patients. The story got darker because The New York Times, the usually-reliable mouthpiece for The Science and his allies in “Joe Biden’s” public health bureaucracy, let slip that, “The Delta variant is as contagious as chickenpox and may be spread by vaccinated people as easily as the unvaccinated.”

Wuh-oh…! A worm the size of an Amtrak Acela train has turned in the myocarditic heart of our nation’s capital. Things have changed overnight — didn’t they see it coming? — and now the government is freaking out as it appears to have some serious ‘splainin’ to do — and right on the heels, too, of an hysterical month-long campaign to persuade the remaining unvaxed millions to submit to the needle, climaxed by threatening the obdurate “hesitants” with taking away their employment and ability to participate in commerce and social life. All that sound-and-fury for what? For vaccines that don’t work… and which, quite possibly, could leave you seriously ill, even dead?

There’s one beguiling explanation I’ve heard — from Brandon Smith of Alt-Markets.us, and others — for that hysterical campaign of recent days to jab every last hold-out: the need to eliminate what’s called the “control group,” the bunch of people who, in any drug trial, are given no drug, or a fake shot (like saline), or a placebo (mindfuck agent) to see if the real thing actually works. The desperate effort couldn’t have been more idiotic, since there was no realistic hope of gulling the remaining unvaxed into getting a shot, and the effort only made the “Joe Biden” admin look even more dishonest and despotic.

This could be the beginning of the end for POTUS 46 and the Woke-Jacobin derangement he stole in on. The CDC numbers look so bad now, that Ol’ White “Joe” himself will have to step up to the mic and say something like: “We made a mistake with these vaccines. I hope you will forgive us.” Of course, he absolutely won’t rise to the occasion and say that, no way… and, anyway, the government (and POTUS 46) will not be forgiven because they’ve destroyed millions of livelihoods and tens of thousands of going businesses, and allowed a bunch of cities to get burned and trashed, and city-dwellers to be harassed and attacked by their Antifa/ BLM shock troops, and enabled roughly half the US population not-insane to be terrorized, mau-maued, and insulted by every Woke jape from the Drag Queen Reading Hour to Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 “insurrection” circus — with the janky 2020 election right in the middle.

Speaking of which election, evidence is likely to emerge soon that the numbers really don’t add up. And in a big way. The max-vax campaign may have been an attempted smoke screen for all that trouble coming down the line, but the max-vax move is obviously flopping now. And, by the way, do you suppose that the not-insane half of the nation has failed to notice that upward of half-a million people from other lands (all over the world!), many carrying Covid-19, have been jumping our border with Mexico… and that the US government has deliberately assisted them… and distributed them by bus, and even on airplanes, to distant points all over the USA… and now these government rogues have the nerve to put the squeeze on American citizens to vax up against a virus they are seeding around the country! Is it really too much to declare that this regime has got to go, and go as soon as possible?

    I found this somewhere,

    In the 1918 influenza epidemic there were several large cities like Philadelphia where they had horse drawn carts collecting dead bodies from the residences 8 hours a day 7 days a week like Monty Python Bring Out Your Dead!

    This is far too much ado about really not much.
    The virus is not doing much.
    The government virus acts are far worse than the virus. If you want some information about what a deadly virus looks like in real life, John Barry’s book is very well written.

    • Beryl of Oyl August 2, 2021 at 10:15 am #

      I read that book, it was interesting.

      We learned back then that putting a diaper on your face because of a virus was a bad idea.

      Probably why they put that warning on the box.

      No actual science since that refutes it.

      Yet we still see a strange belief in the talisman.

      DC’s mayor ordered the snot rag for the face indoors, the next day went to a wedding without one.

      People are so strange.

        Mask Mandates are so last month! Its far too easy to just take them off and then no one will ever know that you have been neutered.

    • Coalclinker August 2, 2021 at 11:55 am #

      My Grandmother used to tell stories about the 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic.

      The most interesting one was about the train ride she and her family took on November 11, 1918, when they left Logan, West Virginia, and moved to Ashland, Kentucky.

      She said everyone was wearing masks, and one of the passengers was even sitting there with an open bottle of carbolic acid under their nose. Everyone was very afraid.
      She said that along the entire trip she saw people laying out in their yards and fields, either dying or dead. Some of them were so famished for water that they had crawled to the water filled ditches that bordered that railroad line. She said it was a surreal day, seeing all of the dead people and hearing every church bell ringing, as that day was the day World War I ended.

      I knew on that day back in March, 2020, when they announced “The Pandemic” that it was all fake. I have still yet to see dead people laying out in their yards or on the sidewalk.There isn’t any apparent increase of the dead in our cemeteries, either. One of our local graveyards was founded in the 1840’s, and there are very many tombstones inscribed with a death date in the fall and winter of 1918-1919.

      the 1918 Flu epidemic inspired Edna St Vincent Millay to write her poem “Lament” which is still a tear jerker.

      Listen, children:
      Your father is dead.
      From his old coats
      I’ll make you little jackets;
      I’ll make you little trousers
      From his old pants.
      There’ll be in his pockets
      Things he used to put there,
      Keys and pennies
      Covered with tobacco;
      Dan shall have the pennies
      To save in his bank;
      Anne shall have the keys
      To make a pretty noise with.
      Life must go on,
      And the dead be forgotten;
      Life must go on,
      Though good men die;
      Anne, eat your breakfast;
      Dan, take your medicine;
      Life must go on;
      I forget just why.

    It’s interesting to get a peek at “actual” numbers (that word being in quotes because they are still published by governments, just not the current American administration).

    So if one were to do a duck-duck-go on “technical briefing sars-cov-2 variants of concern” and pick the gov.uk link, one might select the most recent Technical Briefing (that being #19 as of today) from Health England.

    The Brits have the advantage of having far earlier access to Delta than us Yanks. As a result, more than half of their cases since Day 1 are now Delta. Which yields this interesting number in Table 4, page 14: 0.0%

    0.0% is the Case Fatality Rate for the Delta variant among more than 200k under-50s who had it.

    Not sure about you, but I’m not really worried about a virus that has a 0.0% chance of killing me.

    These numbers are available to CDC, CNN, PMSNBC et all. So the big question is, why are they trying so hard to make *you* afraid of it?

        The President of USA was banned there. Dorsey is evil.

      • abbybwood August 2, 2021 at 12:47 pm #

        A few days ago when Biden was giving another rah-rah speech trying to coerce the current unvaccinated “control group” to get the jab he said, “Come on folks! If you are vaccinated you can’t get Covid!”

        Why isn’t the president being hit for severe misinformation?

        • Uncle Bob August 2, 2021 at 2:47 pm #

          Because he’s a Democrat.

          Before I’m called names, the fact if the matter is that 95% of American “journalists” are Democrats who believe is socialist everything. If Trump said it, it must be a lie because, well, a) he’s Trump, and b) he’s one of Them, not one of Us. You replace Trump with Dotard Joe, and suddenly everything is swell. Even when Joe quotes Trump “without credit, of course,” Joe is said to be telling the truth, even when it’s blatantly obvious that he’s lying his ass off. It ain’t right, but it’s how things are.

          BTW, my question regarding Trump and the Almighty shot is: Did he know that the vax was ineffective, even dangerous, while he told us how great it is? Or did his advisors lie to him about its efficacy because they knew that’s what he wanted to hear? In other words, if/when people die off because of the vax, how much of the blame falls on Trump and his mouthpieces (Hannity, etc.)?

          • DrTomSchmidt August 3, 2021 at 1:23 pm #

            He is going to get ALL the blame. He deserves some, maybe most of it.

            There, I think that answers your question..

          • Uncle Bob August 5, 2021 at 12:30 pm #

            Bluedog, are you saying anybody who voted for Trump should be shot? Or are you saying anybody who voted for China Joe should be lined up and shot, since he’s the fucker who’s currently destroying constitutional rights while squawking about people not getting the shot. Or are you merely admitting you’re A partisan horse’s ass who’d believe anything Biden, the Clinton crime family, Barack the Magnificent, Sen. Schmendrick, and other Democrat “luminaries” say?

        • Horseradish Farmer August 2, 2021 at 4:25 pm #

          Because it’s not disinformation. You and I and normal people may believe that disinformation is necessarily false. And we are supposed to believe that.

          But disinformation in the social media sense means “opposed to the Narrative.” And “Take the Jab” is the Narrative.

          The Narrative is that these vaccines work, which is what Biden said.
          The Narrative is also that they will keep your symptoms down when they don’t work, which is what Linsey Graham said today.
          The Narrative is also that if they don’t work and don’t keep your symptoms down, it’s the fault of the unvaxxed, not of the vaxx.

          We may just think that’s a scoundrelly way to mislead normal people who aren’t paying too close attention. But we would be absolutely correct.

    • Disaffected August 2, 2021 at 10:20 am #

      Not to mention that I’m not aware of any credible science detailing exactly what this mysterious “Delta variant” is, or indeed, if it actually exists at all. Any evidence coming out of the CDC, the WHO, or US or Brit.gov is simply not credible to my mind and should be disregarded as malicious disinformation meant only to sell poison pricks to the masses.

      • Beryl of Oyl August 2, 2021 at 10:35 am #

        Pfizer notified the EU of its price increases coming down the pike.

      • Prospero August 2, 2021 at 12:09 pm #

        Apparently, the Delta variant is the first in a series of Covid-19 varients that will be introduced periodically to generate billions of dollars for drug pushers Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson and Johnson.

        The experimental Covid drug pushers were hoping the Delta variant would motivate millions of unvaccinated people to finally accept injections of their potentially-harmful mRNA drugs. (Why Apha, Beta and Gamma varients were skipped remains a mystery.)

        The Delta variant has already prompted “The Science” community to suggest that endless periodic booster shots may be needed to enhance the “safe and effective” Covid drugs currently being promoted by our government, mass media and social media.

        I am eagerly anticipating the introduction of the next Covid varient. Perhaps it will be called Epsilon, Zeta, Theta, Kappa or Omega. Unfortunately, we may soon find out.

        • Horseradish Farmer August 2, 2021 at 12:16 pm #

          Epsilon is already being called a “triple mutation”. My money says that’s the one on deck…

        “Get the jab and you can ditch the mask.”

        Now it is “wear a mask inside and outside even if you are vaccinated!”

        “Jump up and down and turn around twice with every sixth step while you are out walking then stand on your head and spit out wooden nickels.”

      Well, they have succeeded for 18 months. Millions are STILL terrified of it, even if they don’t know anyone who’s even caught it, let alone died. Shows you the power of propaganda and mind control/programming.

      There’s no way I’d take that jab.

      Apparently most doctors don’t even know VAERS exists or that they should be reporting adverse events from the jab to it, so conveniently, we don’t know how many people it has injured or killed.

          I was told I had covid: Back over new year the wife brought some flu event home, she called the doc we both went to be tested and it was, of course positive. Was told there’s nothing to be done so the wife did it.
          I took Ivermectin, was fine in two days. the wife took 10-12 days.

      • abbybwood August 2, 2021 at 1:57 pm #

        Maybe for 20 or 30 years physicians in the United States were independent with just a small group working together.

        Now, except for many rural areas, all these doctors work under corporate umbrellas and they are now “employees”.

        I had the occasion a few months ago to speak to a UCLA doctor on the phone. We finished the business at hand and she started in on me about the jab. She knew I had worked in the trenches as an R.N. for over forty years. We ended up talking about Covid for about a half an hour and as I kept talking she kept asking more questions, especially about Ivermectin (which she thought was just an anti-parasitic).

        I seriously doubt any of these medical conglomerates like UCLA and Kaiser are instructing these doctors about the VAERS system or when signs and symptoms of adverse reactions should be reported.

        My understanding is that the form is long and detailed and must be signed under penalty of perjury.

        If I was in charge, every computerized healthcare system in the US involved with Covid vaccines would have separate files for the vaccines, injection sites, dates and any time the patient called in with signs or symptoms of adverse reactions listed in Big Pharmas inserts.

        These signs and symptoms, diagnostic findings and related deaths entered into the computer would immediately go to the Covid vaccination file and a VAERS report would be generated.

        The physician could easily pawn the job of filling it out to a nurse (I know) or P.A.s., review it then sign it.

        Maybe then the CDC (and the American people) would have a better idea of what is happening out in the field with these jabs.

        That is if they are not too busy lying and obfuscating for their Big Pharma/government paymasters.

        • Unperson37854 August 2, 2021 at 6:06 pm #

          The burden of proof for claiming a covid-responsible death is far, far lower than the burden required to claim a vaccine death or adverse effect for that matter.

          Most physicians never heard of VAERS.

          • Bilejones@hotmail.com August 5, 2021 at 7:57 pm #

            That is true. For it to be a vaccine “breakthrough” case the pcr test is run at 28 cycles. for the heathen the standard is 40.
            My dog is positive @ 40 cycles.

        • MaryQueen August 5, 2021 at 10:11 am #

          Being a doctor in the US these days must suck. You couldn’t pay me enough, even if I wanted to become one.

          Healthcare in general sucks. I worked in the field for a year and a half and couldn’t wait to get back out of it.

          I don’t know how nurses do it. Seriously, you are the best. The nurses I worked with were amazing. I was in management.

      • jgalt August 2, 2021 at 2:35 pm #

        Sadly, reporting adverse events on VAERS only brings more paperwork and explanations for the doctors, and perhaps threats for misdiagnosis. The pharmaceutical industry controls most medical journals and spends hundreds of millions on medical students for books, laptops, etc, as well as constant seminars on the wonderful drugs they produce. Ever been in a doctor’s office at lunch time when the drug rep brings in pizzas and anything the staff orders? I have! Check out the amounts spent on lobbying and donations to our so-called public servants. The death count for these experimental drugs is rapidly becoming astronomical, as they already exceed deaths from all other drugs over the last three years, and that is only considering that no more than 10% of adverse events and deaths are actually reported according to medical studies.

    • Slugoon August 2, 2021 at 10:39 am #

      That report also shows there have been 460 “Delta” deaths in SIX months. That accounts for 0.18% of the 251,000 deaths that have occurred in the same period. Wow!

      In addition, 289 of those 460 deaths (63%) were in vaccinated people.

      We also have access to weekly deaths going back to 2010. The increase in death rate amongst 15-44 year-olds versus the 10-year average stands at 0.003% and we know that some of those can be accounted for as suicides.

          All sorts of respiratory infections seem to make you immune to Covid-19 by activating mucosal IgA antibodies. I have read a paper where Covid-19 was unable to replicate 3 days after an infection with another respiratory virus (not sure if it even was a corona virus).

          The vaccine activates IgG and systemic IgA. Systemic IgA antibodies are different from IgA antibodies resident in the mucuous membranes.

          Once the virus encounters systemic antibodies (circulating in the blood) it has already penetrated into the lungs past the defenses in the mucuous membranes.

          Inhaleable vaccines would be indicated for a severe respiratory virus but the mRNA version thereof is a little dicey as it has been tried on mice and _all_ of them died shortly thereafter.

            It’s viral vector so not too different from mRNA but no lipid nanoparticles (the delivery system of RNA is definitely a problem: search mRNA vaccine, magnetofaction, graphene oxide).
            I would consent to such a vaccine if sufficiently pressured, mRNA under no conditions.

            I saw yesterday where those who are Vegans have an exemption on the jab not because they don’t eat dead animals or wear leather shoes etc., it is because they object to the testing done on animals with the jabs.

            Because Vegans are federally protected this is the reason federal prisoners can demand Vegan diets and they must get them by law.

            Maybe at 71 I should drop the “I’m trying to get pregnant” line for “I’m a Vegan!”

        “Boris is now simultaneously threatening the youngsters and bribing them with burgers and taxi rides to go get vaxxed up. As Jim says, Things Don’t Add Up.” This statement of yours really doesn’t add up. To the best of my knowledge the UK’s NHS is trying NOT to vaccinate the 18 group to get the jab. Call them “youngsters” if you like, but I won’t.
        The exclusions to the UK’s <= 18 policy are people with immune deficiency or other known high risk conditions for severe or fatal COVID-19 infections.

      Horseradish

      Look at the death rate (not the CFr) in the US over the past several months. A virtual flat line.

      Meanwhile “cases” have soared, peaked and collapsed without effecting the actual death rate. How can this be?

      First, they re-defined a “case” as anyone who produced a positive PCR test reading instead of someone who had been examined by a medical professional and diagnosed with a disease as it had been throughout medical history. .

      As soon as they looked at the Diamond Princess actual fatalities in early 2020 (a perfect petri dish) “The Deciders” knew that their work was cut out for them if they were to build a Pandemic Panic around the real medical threat. The answer was to declare the PCR test the gold standard and the only valid measure of COVID infection. Since the PCR test does nothing but tell how many times the nose swab was amplified the outcome is a purely political choice. From then on it was child’s play for the CDC to produce any spike in “cases” needed to raise the fear index or “prove” success for the incoming political faction.

      No valid data for actual cases exist because they were built on the PCR test fraud. Whatever the facts are it is a fraction of the real number.

      By this point in the control by the propaganda mind parasites is so complete that the CDC was able to announce on a Friday evening that the PCR testing was worthless and would be abandoned at the end of the year and nobody in the brain dead Media even noticed.

      But not to worry. The failure to produce a biological weapon with real teeth has been completely supplanted by the success in of PsyOps-generated Fear that opened the door for the Universal Genetic Re-programing of the human immune system.in half the population.

Not quite time yet to openly advertise “I told you so,” but one hopes that day is coming soon.

        They have committed to their faith, they are true believers and at this point they have to be, after all, they took the jab, it is the only thing between them and their fears – it cannot become the fear itself.

        They will take their 3rd and 4th 95%-effective booster and instead of realizing they’re only doing so because their masters are grifting off of them with an ineffective jab, they will dutifully turn that subconscious fear and frustration into rage and missassigned blame against the “anti”vaxxers.

      I know only one person who had Covid: 62, good health, down for a week with fever/chills, some coughing, then tired for two weeks and now back to normal.

      The tally for adverse reactions among those I directly know: return of severe contact dermatitis which had been gone for 10+years (67 years old); 8-month old breastfeeding infant with full GI tract bleeding 4 days after mother received first shot (no word yet on whether the baby has recovered); very fit 50 year old man has lost power of speech from a stroke two months after shots; otherwise healthy 55 year old woman hospitalized for heart inflammation 5 days after second shot, seems to recover well, then dies of cerebral hemorrhage two months later.

      When you hear about these sorts of events among true believers don’t ask, “Were they vaccinated?” because this will earn you a lecture. Instead ask “Was it Covid?”–and they will eagerly respond “No, they were vaccinated!”

It’s a shame because his establishment puts out some excellent food and he’s been in business for decades.

      Like me, he has never worn a mask although some of his employees choose to. We agreed that the only viable solution was disobedience to the next lockdown. Mass disobedience.

      Even here on CFN, for mask efficacy, I recall using the analogy of a mosquito flying through a chainlink fence.

      IIRC, virus particles are thousands of times smaller than the pores in the weave of the average medical mask.

      When aerosolized, it floats right through. The best one could hope for is that it catches a bit of snot from a sneeze or large visible drops with virus.

          A while back (many months ago) I searched and read a number of research papers looking at mask efficacy in the OR.

          Post-op infection is a perennial issue in hospitals.

          One of the more outstanding papers had 1500 +/- in one group (day on) and 1500 +/- in the second group (day off). Very simple design, it alternated between day with masks on followed by day with masks off, continuing until it was finished (that’s about 3000 +/- patients). One group had a 3% post-op infection incidence, the other had a 4% post-op incidence of infection. Statistically insignificant.

          masks do what?

          • C.O.Jones August 4, 2021 at 9:27 am #

            According to “the Science” masks are ineffective against a virus – just like it says on the box the masks come in. The main effect of masks, again according to “the Science” is to make people feel better. What’s wrong with that? You want to feel better, don’t you?

            The only way out of this is for Fauci, Gates and everyone profiting from this government created virus/lockdown/deathjab/ to be placed in chains, tried and punished according to the Nuremberg code. Crimes against humanity deserve death.

          Up steps the MSM to provide them with the perfect focus and blame for their subconscious anger – the unvaccinated. This allows those who are starting to see those dastardly unvaxxed predictions come true to hold two opposing realities true at the same time.

    I tend to agree with JHK’s position (from his last post) that the whole thing is more about clusterfuckery than it is about mindfuckery. At the same time, the PTB play by the “never let a good crisis go to waste” playbook so they’ve turned the events into a mindfuckery just the same.

    In either case, keep your powder dry folks because whether the disaster continues to play out as simply the result of an immense amount of stupidity or genuine evil the end game is gonna be the same. There’s gonna be a dogfight and I for one could care less whether the my adversaries were one or the other. They just need to be put down because neither evil nor such grand incompetence should be allowed to coexist with the rest of us who actually want to live normal, peaceful lives.

    I’ve never understood why doctors have so cowardly left unchallenged the Woke assertion that there’s no such thing as biological sex — XX or XY and in rare cases, some mutations but these are very rare. So the AMA’s gutless capitulation is no surprise. Yet we’re told to “trust” these very scientists!

    The best thing I ever read about lying is that it not only destroys trust in others but you end up questioning yourself — what if what someone is saying is really true and your own judgement is wrong despite evidence? In other words, you can no longer trust yourself to discern the truth in common sense, observation and prior knowledge.

    This insanity about “sex is assigned, not born” is a perfect example of a lie to undermine personal judgement. That the AMA is playing along with it is a shameful example of their moral collapse.

      There’s a lot of money to be made in sexual reassignment. As an example, look at the field of gastroenterology. The US is the only country where diagnostic colonoscopy is routinely recommended in all persons over 50. I can only believe that is done to increase the income of gastroenterologists. That procedure is not without substantial risk, you know. I’ve seen the results of botched ones turning up in the emergency room 12-to-24-hours later with massive infections in the belly from tears in the colon allowing fecal material to escape into the abdomen.

        One vaccinated woman (she got the vaccine because she thought having asthma put her at higher risk), when talking about the news that vaccinated people could still spread COVID, actually said “you mean a vaccinated person could make me sick?”

        That’s the mentality. Not that you could still make others sick, but that others are endangering YOUR health.

        • Yohannon August 2, 2021 at 11:59 am #

          Well they worked it other way too, for nice people. Remember, “You don’t wear a mask to protect yourself, but to protect others”? I used to point out that if it didn’t protect you from others, it wasn’t going to protect others from you. They would get quiet after that. Logic.

      They said right up front that it wouldn’t provide protection, only ameliorate the symptoms, though how they could even prove that much is beyond me. It’s like telling you how many flu cases the flu vaccine prevents every year, which is a thing quite improvable. Is it their fault people heard what they wanted to hear?

      • Yohannon August 2, 2021 at 12:04 pm #

        Well they never overtly said that in ads and psa’s. They just said it was Very safe and effective. But yes, if people read the actual claims, and how modest they are, they would be amazed.

        I suppose if it can stop you from sneezing or coughing, it does prevent transmission. Otherwise we’d have to admit asymptomatic transmission. But how long can that go on for? Maybe the body will then start to just breathe it out.

        • tresho August 2, 2021 at 4:49 pm #

      • Beryl of Oyl August 2, 2021 at 12:43 pm #

        It was pushed on people as a necessity to return to normal, you had to get the vaccine so people wouldn’t get COVID anymore.

        When they say once you get the vaccine you can go places thaat the unvaccinated can’t, because now you are safe, what is any reasonable person, who hasn’t been paying close attention, going to think?

        Why do they even call this a vaccine?

        BTW they couldn’t prove the “help prevent hospitalizations and deaths” part, that’s only what they were aiming for in their experiment.

        There is still no evidence that it does that, according to Alex Berenson, and that’s why he gets kicked off of Twitter, for saying things that are true.

          PAnd as a follower of the FLCCC protocol guidelines for prevention against Covid (D3 5000u/day, Zinc 50 mg/day, Votamin C, Magnesium and Melatonin 6mg at night, a daily regular aspirin etc and even Ivermectin with a specific protocol, plus clearing nasal passages Daily with a nasal spray (keep those nasal passages clean!) etc., I follow these guidelines.

          And if you get Covid as soon as possible keep up the preventative meds plus a certain protocol with Ivermectin and possibly Fluvoxamine as well etc.

          They are recommending having all the prescription meds on hand so if you come down with Covid you can start the Ivermectin right away and nip the virus in the ass.

          Check out these protocols and stock up just in case. Best way to also avoid long Covid problems.

          1- The Pfizer/Moderna experimental gene alteration injections are not vaccines by any established definition of the term.. Real vaccines stop infection and transmission of disease as do Polio and Smallpox vaccines. These experimental injections do neither.
          2- The totalitarian restrictions being rolled out for air travel, access to public spaces—even shopping for groceries–deny such activities to all but the “fully vaccinated”.
          3- “Fully Vaccinated” is defined as those who have have been inoculated with Pfizer or Moderna genetic alteration injections. All acquired immunity or vaccination with actual vaccines is excluded.

          The “Fully Vaccinated” have not been vaccinated at all., They have been subject to a mass biological experiment without their fully informed consent. They are no more vaccinated than the 50% who refuse to be shot.

          Therefore all the Vaccine Passports and Social Control cards are invalid and without basis. in fact. The only thing that stands behind them is raw Power.

    Some science from Karl Denninger:

    You were either the mutational factory or an intermediate host that screws the next person you share the love with!

    Not only did your protection against fail but, much worse, it’s possible that said screwing will be enhanced by whatever residual antibody titer you may have since binding antibodies, if present (and which you intentionally put into your system) will still be present. Even more-seriously you put the spike protein and thus the antibody response not in your nose and throat but in your blood vessels and other organs where they can cause the exact disease progression that occurs when Covid-19 kills people. If you get a “break though” infection I hope you have your d-Dimer levels immediately checked because if not you may be a walking heart attack or stroke somewhere in the not-so-distant future with no other warning as a direct result of intentionally loading your body full of “protection” in the wrong place.

    This, and only this, is why I will not consent to such a jab under any circumstances until and unless there is hard science showing that a sterilizing option exists. That one, assuming the risk profile is reasonable, is one I might consider. Said jab today does not exist anywhere in the United States and I’m unaware of any scientific work showing that any of the current jabs are sterilizing irrespective of where they are manufactured and sold.

    Without sterilizing immunization against this disease the only sane approach is to attempt to interdict the progress of disease at first suspicion and evidence of infection instead.

    I am capable of reading both history and scientific papers, I know I’m right, the CDC, NIH, Vander****, Mayo, Cleveland and Johns Hopkins also knew for decades that I’m right and they have either all turned what formerly were scientific organizations into politically-driven soy-boy pieces of worthless and even harmful crap or, much worse, they’re deliberately lying.

    If you were among the conned the only remaining question is what are you going to do with and to those who conned you?

      This is the worst “I told you so” in history.

      It’s horrible watching people get this jab without doing any research and thinking they were doing something good.

      But then I can’t get past how stupid it was to do it. And I can’t get past the utter psychotic cruelty of doing it to children.

      And I can’t find any empathy for people whose children were killed by the jab, but still advocate for it (Why? So other people can lose their kids, too?). Ditto any other loved one, but especially kids.

            Recall the HCQ/Trump period of time. He offered his opinion as a person, not a medical person, it was a good idea.

            That was about the end of HCQ as either a prophylaxis or a cure. TDS in full array.

            So maybe it is better if he says nothing about Ivermectin?

          • ThorsHammer August 3, 2021 at 10:34 am #

            For the record I submit a small incident among the thousands scrubbed from history.

            Trump was diagnosed with COVID and spent a weekend at Walter Reed. The next Monday morning he was back on the campaign trail drawing his usual crowds of followers.

            The only known antiviral medicine that has occasionally produced such a rapid recovery is Ivermectin.

            A few weeks before Trumps miracle recovery I watched an interview conducted by Rudi Giualani with the Russian/American Dr. Dr. Vladimir Zelenko in which he and a French colleague reported high rates of success using HCQ to treat early stages of COIVID 19, The interview was banned and pulled from U Tube immediately. But not before Giualani met with Trump and told him that there might be an effective treatment for the COVID virus. Trump seemed to still naively believe that he could enter into a dialogue with the American public, but soon learned otherwise and became the first casualty in the War on HCQ. Medical Totalitarianism so successfully controlled and manufactured the dialogue that they convinced the passive American public that the oldest and most widely-used drug on the planet was a deadly danger to anyone who used it.

            But of course the Pfizer/Maderna drug pushers had to crush any alternative regardless of the cost in lives in order to maintain the fraud behind their Emergency Use Authorization.

            Guillotines are too good for the mass murders behind this fraud.

          • ThorsHammer August 3, 2021 at 11:21 am #

            In the early stages of the War on HCQ (April-May 2020) the recommended American protocol for anybody exhibiting early stage COVID was ” go home, stay in bed and take Tylenol. If you have trouble breathing, go to the hospital and we will put you on a ventilator.” The mass murderer Como accelerated the death rate by shipping the most infected patients off to retirement homes where the highest concentrated of high-risk individuals resided. He managed to be instrumental in killing 55,000-77,000 New York citizens.

            Meanwhile in the entire country of Cuba during the entire year of 2020 only 178 people died from COVID19. And in tropical Africa where HCQ is universally used as an anti-malaria preventive the COVID death rate is 1/7 that of in “advanced” western countries.

            Yet we are supposed to believe that the untested experimental genetic re-programming by mRNA fake vaccines is the only available treatment for COVID.

            And even now when the initial narrow protection is wearing off and the fake vaccines have failed to prevent infection among the “fully vaccinated” , the Totalitarians propose to starve resistors into submission by denying them all rights of movement and commerce.

            There is a reason why the citizens of the USA are the most heavily armed of any country. The Totalitarians have declared war upon half the American population. We have no choice but to mobilize, tear down their shields, and fight back.

        Let’s see, they’ve completely, purposely torched government, human rights, the rule of law, medicine, social media, mainstream media, Hollywood, most of professional sports, paying rent and mortgages, and a substantial portion of small business.

        One can only surmise something as of yet unannounced, something much bigger, is coming down the pike that would entirely negate the future of all those going concerns.

            It seems like we’ve stepped thru the looking glass — ten years ago, if a medical professor had said this, they would have been fired for being delusional.

            How did this insanity in schools begin? I think it was with “student evaluations” and the administrators basing promotions and employment on these. So if the class is too hard, or not entertaining enough or the professor is no charmer then it’s used as a weapon to get rid of them. Compliant, cringing professors get to keep their jobs. Grade inflation is common to keep the students and parents happy. And now it’s out of control with the lunatics running the asylum.

            One effective action the medical professors could take — but it would be risky — is a massive walkout if forced to continue this woke agenda. I don’t think it will happen.

          I agree. It’s dehumanizing and disorienting. What’s the first thing someone asks an expectant couple after a sonogram or the baby’s birth? — what did you have? boy or girl? It may not be on birth certificates anymore but I really don’t think most people are going to go for this idiocy.

          I’ve been told by homosexuals that they always felt attraction to their same sex and this is sexual proclivity that has been known for a millennial. But all this non binary, transexual mumbo-jumbo is something compelety new and — why is this being promoted so endlessly? Most people want to leave others in peace in their intimate life but this is in our face a lot.

    Household (HH) Level:

    A specific room/area designated for high-risk individuals who are physically isolated from other HH members.

    Neighborhood Level:

    A designated shelter/group of shelters (max 5-10 households), within a small camp or area where high-risk members are grouped together. Neighbors “swap” households to accommodate high-risk individuals.

    Camp/Sector Level:

    A group of shelters such as schools, community buildings within a camp/sector (max 50 high-risk individuals per single green zone) where high-risk individuals are physically isolated together.”

      How do you catch wild hogs? Kind of like the old story about how to boil frogs. First you place food in an open area and wait. The hogs will eventually arrive for the feast. Do it again the next day. On the third day build a fence on the edge of the field Just one small section now, You don’t want to alert them. They will come. Do it again on the fourth day. Just that one section. On the fifth day build another section. Follow the process until only a small opening is left for them to enter. Have the gate readied for when they’re all penned in and slam dunk VOILA! you now have yourself a large supply of bacon and baby back ribs. They won’t even realize their predicament until it’s too late. And neither will many Americans. Barbecue anyone?

          Similarly MQ, we should be as distrustful as was The Outlaw Josey Wales. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll recall the scene, towards the beginning, when the “rebels” led by Fletcher (played by John Vernon), decided to surrender to the victorious Union Army, The only holdout was Josey Wales (played by Clint Eastwood) and right he was because those who surrendered were slaughtered, summarily executed. He carried on the fight privately and always sought to avoid them as much possible. But they hounded him relentlessly. And he made them pay for it.

          Nah.
          I’ve kept pigs for years.
          A fence made of 30 inch livestock panels keeps them in just fine.
          Occasionally, a piglet manages to wiggle under, but I don’t think I’ve ever had a grown one escape.
          Sure, they COULD dig out if they set their minds to it.
          But as long as their well fed, why would they bother?
          The secret is, pigs don’t WANT to be free.
          They want to be fed.

      certain social cohesion that they are working very hard to deny the Many [wokeism, idPol, and the like] for obvious reasons..

    There’s one beguiling explanation I’ve heard — from Brandon Smith of Alt.Markets.us, and others — for that hysterical campaign of recent days to jab every last hold-out: the need to eliminate what’s called the “control group,” the bunch of people who, in any drug trial, are given no drug, or a fake shot (like saline), or a placebo (mindfuck agent) to see if the real thing actually works.

    That’s it, in a nutshell. If credible evidence that the unvaxxed are just fine and that the vaxxed themselves are the problem ever takes hold, it’s game over for the ruse. Not that that’s very likely, since as 9-11 definitively proved, once people buy into the big lie they’re extremely, if not impossibly, reluctant to ever give up on it, but even so. The truth must be buried right along with the dead, so vaxxes for all it will almost certainly be.

          • abbybwood August 4, 2021 at 12:45 am #

            Typically vaccines take 10-15 years to be approved as safe and effective, so me suggesting a mere 4 year waiting period is fair and reasonable, especially if one is in the “control group” of the unvaccinated (like I and millions of others are).

    • Slugoon August 2, 2021 at 11:01 am #

      This is in a different league to11/9. There are many people who have never given that much thought (me for example) but this is in your face and affects everyone.

      Time is running out to expunge the control group. The data is already coming in. Significant numbers are still not vaccinated and since they’ve had plenty of chances they are unlikely to do so.

      I’ve been chatting to a colleague today whose family includes a nurse, dentist and surgeon. None of them have been vaccinated and nor are they going to be.

      My nearest and dearest who have been vaccinated have stated they will not take any boosters. That will be fun, when the triple-vaccinated turn on the double-vaccinated!

      • Disaffected August 2, 2021 at 11:03 am #

        Yes, the vaxxed are screwed. And I agree with that article James linked to, we are the control group and they can’t have that.

        9/11 IMHO was used to shock and terrorize the population, which it did. It also served as a way to get permission to invade 7 ME countries and hide the theft of 2 trillion dollars. As it turns out, we still didn’t approve of that, but they did it anyway to ‘keep us safe.’ 9/11 was used to start the gradual grooming of and coddling of the populace, to believe that daddy government will take care of you and keep you safe from mean Muslims who want to kill you just because of your freedumbs.

        It worked! Then they peppered a few other big shocks/false flags/engineered tragedies throughout during the past 20 years to keep us fearful. Then Covid19 was the big finale.

        Or is it? I’m guessing they can and will go much further.

        AIDs and the Oklahoma city bombing seem to be warm-ups. The Waco tragedy showed us what happens if we try to live outside of daddy government’s control.

            What happened to the war on them, then? It suddenly ended around 6 years or so ago.

            So, the propaganda changed. We no longer needed to fear Muslim extremists, why?

            Did they just stop attacking us? Or did they ever in the first place?

            This has nothing to do with ‘liking’ or ‘not liking’ Muslims.

    Life Deals the Final Handby Consider the possibility that Life and the Life Force (remember them?) may have  determined human actions have now crossed a boundary Life deems impermissible.

    The current plagues may be an effort to contain human actions that tax the ability of the planet to support other life forms..We try desperately to cope with the various manifestations of Covids that Life may have sown as impediments to human activities; adding to this are the millions of human deaths that are occurring. In the face of this kind of onslaught, we are helpless.

    The outburst coincides with the remarkable appearance of very sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications and astounding robotic performances.In may not be a coincidence these two phenomena have arrived at this time.

    1:The Covid plagues may be Life’s attempt to avoid planetary distress prior to Life’s possible resort to a ‘final solution’ to humanity’s insensitivity to fellow inhabitants of Earth. 2: Life’s possible desire to have awareness survive the passing of humans from the scene by allowing AI to continue until Life is assured consciousness and awareness will survive, artificially, beyond human existence.Until Life appears satisfied we humans are responding to its efforts to preserve life, the plagues may continue indefinitely.

    We are being warned but its doubtful we’ll respond. Humans appear tone-deaf to the screaming of our desperate fellow creatures which we regard as concerns of Life and not of ourselves. 
    There is more Life contained in a bag of grass-seed than has been found in all the known Universe.Stay home.

    No Jim, it’s too little to declare. They need to face the firing squad; actually they should be burned alive (like ISIS did to that Jordanian pilot back around 2015) or dissolved in acid baths while they’re writing in agony. There are no punishments strong enough for the insults and injuries they have heaped on what was the greatest country in the world until they came along and trashed it.

    And they have taken the nation, indeed the world, on an unnecessary and painful detour of pandemic mismanagement, cancel culture, cultural subversion, coup-by-election-fraud, unnecessary universal vaccination, silencing of all dissent, and all round horror of cynicism and bad faith, at a time when we should be mustering all our strength and resources to deal with the imminent energy crisis and economic contraction.

      The virus exists but the pandemic is a deliberate scam nonetheless. The PCR test is run at a cycle threshold (“ct”) where the majority of positive results do not lead to a sample that can replicate in a cell culture.

      If the pathogen does not replicate and you have no (significant) symptoms you do not have a case — you have a false positive.

      It is telling that there is no criterion for a false positive. For any test at all the probabilities of false positives and false negatives are fundamental quantities that must be known or else no conclusions can be drawn from test results.

      But without a criterion for a false positive you cannot even define the probability of such. This is not only unscientific, it is idiotic. To nail this down an extensive study with tests followed by cell cultures would have to be conducted — but nothing such is published (to my knowledge).

      What this means is that all published numbers about “cases” are merely nonsense and we do not know what they mean.

      It gets even worse. Johns Hopkins University (who lead the pandemic simulation Event 201) solemnly gathered data about number of cases by country on a daily basis without supplementing them with the number of tests performed. This is so stupid that it must have been deliberate. As the testing ramped up (with its legion of false positives) so did the number of “cases” and with that you have a basis for a pandemic psy-op.

    No, not at all, but that doesn’t mean that the ninety-nine per cent won’t continue to be mollified by Bread & Circuses.

    As huge as an illegitimate presidential election and fraudulent epidemic are, they won’t result in enough of a coordinated uprising to diminish the regime’s control of the population.

    As throughout history, that won’t happen until Lenin’s contention is corroborated, that no society is more than three meals away from revolution. At that juncture people still will not be thinking about November 3rd or January 6th, but will be highly focused on where to find a loaf of bread.

      Imagine the planet as a living organism…Gaia.

      And some of the humans are pure evil (bad infection). We all know exactly who they are. If they are hypocrites and liars they are the bad infection.

      Most of the cells are benign followers and need to be awakened to the danger and a few are the powerful healing leaders. The powerful leader cells are like the hundreds of thousands of French who filled the streets over the weekend telling Macron no more jabs no more lockdowns and no more masks.

      All the powerful healing leaders in the US and other countries need to take France’s lead and stand up for human rights and freedom.

      We need to remind all in the government that WE are paying them to serve us, not imprison us.

      Healing needs to take place, but the healing leadership needs to get off-line and into the streets.

    It is well past time for the illegitimate Biden administration to go, but unfortunately, there are no means to make that happen short of a real, armed mass insurrection. The Democrat house will certainly never consider impeachment, which, by the way, would only put the California mattress queen in the figurehead position. A military coup is out of the question given the divisions that exist within it and the present brass at the top. I don’t see any relief on the short term.

        Abby

        The problem is that we do not “all know exactly who they are.” About thirty-three million Americans are loyal to the Republican tribe and fervently believe that your “pure evil/bad infection” are the Democrats. And about forty-four million others are Republicans who believe with equal fervor that the evil ones are the Democrats.

        That many or more Independents understand that both parties are deeply corrupt and subservient to evil overlords, and most of the rest of our fellow citizens are too apathetic or clueless to have any vague idea who to blame for our nation’s sorry state.

        The entire system is rigged to assure that a politically viable third party cannot be created, and most Americans have little regard for the French, who eat snails and speak a funny language.

        Perhaps we can enlist some of them to come over here and fill our streets for us. The Americans who tried to get that ball rolling on January Sixth got thoroughly jobbed by the corporate media within hours and have been persecuted relentlessly by the establishment ever since.

        I don’t think they can be shamed with the truth. These people are hypocrites. Call it to their face, you will not be saying anything they do not already know.

        They are well beyond caring they are hypocrites, they embrace it as a part of their life and live it each day.

        People such as this can have no shame, whatever we define as shame.

        I don’t think they can have remorse, only a sense of failing to have been better at screwing the rest of humanity.

        Possibly they believe they are more than mere hired mouthpieces, which is something a bit different. Still, no sense of either shame or wrongdoing is possible.

    The vaccines are not useless. They work extremely well in reducing the severity of the virus damage, including its lethality. Good enough for me.

    • King of Comedy August 2, 2021 at 11:27 am #

      The lethality of the virus has been somewhere between .2-.5% (according to the CDC’s IFR estimates) throughout the pandemic. The IFR on measures deaths per confirmed cases. Many (most?) people have natural immunity to coronaviruses including SARS2 and will never get sick so the lethality factoring those people in is actually considerably lower which begs the question: how much more can the lethality be reduced when it is already minuscule?

      To put that in perspective: at .5% IFR, it means one has a 1 in 200 chance of dying from Covid. One’s chances of dying in a car crash: 1 in 120.

      Dunno Opie. I worry for friends who took the vax as well. But I’m not all that concerned re how many docs have taken it. I figure that many (if not most) of us unvaxed are reasonably healthy individuals who believe in taking care of their own health. Many of the vaxed are elderly, ill or highly dependent on the medical establishment. So our control group would probably require a whole lot less doctoring than the population as a whole.

      The “woo” community is confused on this whole forced vaccination. Who are the Powers trying to get rid of, their own supporters? Here is their logic in a nutshell from a recent video:

      The people they are getting rid of are the sheep, the easily controlled, too stupid to do their own research, or too programmed — all the yes men. The only ones healthy (or alive) after all this are the non-conformist people who are strong and do the research and have good immune systems. And despise the authorities.

      If this pandemic is a Georgia Guidestones situation, where they wish to wipe out 80% of the population, they are fucking stupid. It doesn’t make sense, when the leftover population is fucking us.

      There must be more to this than just the Georgia guidestones agenda, or agenda 21.

      — So things don’t add up. It feels more like a desperation move on the part of the Elite. Something else is happening that we aren’t seeing yet, that hasn’t come to light.

        The Covid and the vaccine are one act in a multi-act play. Who knows what their next effort at mass extermination involves? And the one after that. JHK is right; they must be brought down. Our survival, not just our freedom and dignity depend on it.

    I’m a nurse from Australia. I have quit nursing because I feel that the medical profession has lost it’s principles to a great extent: To coerce, or worse mandate, anyone into getting an experimental gene therapy pushed into their body is outrageous. I remember being taught how privacy of medical information was paramount – and now they consider making it mandatory to show your entire medical record to complete strangers just to get into a cafe, restaurant, etc etc. I will not give up my principles but I am lucky in that I am old enough to have savings behind me; I feel truly sorry for those who have to give in to this because they need their jobs so badly.

      I’ve been using the “No dig” method and have eliminated over 98% of the weeds. My main time is now spent watering. I have 70 tomato plants, 40 cucumber plants, and 8 beds of beans, lettuce, kale, squash and so on. Most of these are trellised to grow vertically, cramming in more space. In one six foot wide, 30 foot long space, I have 2 rows of 20 tomato plants, 40 cucumbers, and a dozen squash — all growing vertically in a 6 foot wide space.

      If you are interested, take a look at Charles Dowding’s videos on youtube. An English gent, he has a large, gorgeous market garden, and many videos.

      Here’s a short intro video of his methods:

      Beautiful vegetables, dramatic views: Charles explains his no dig intensive garden

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDjgJ6NroVE

      The basics are extremely simple: lay down cardboard over your lawn, maybe 2 layers of it, and then put down 4 inches of compost to make 30 inch wide beds. There, that’s a great start. Tons of videos go on to explain what to do next.

        Last year I left a bunch of pots with dirt in them outside in the backyard all winter, and when they grew spectacular crops of weeds in the summer I pretended I wanted it that way.

      • Islander August 2, 2021 at 2:40 pm #

        Wet Dog,

        That is how I made new beds, but using newspaper.
        In the fall, open up sections of newspaper and lay them down where you want the bed. So, maybe thickness of about 5-10 sheets of newspaper (typical newspaper section).
        Cover with mulch.
        Water in.

        In the spring, dig it over. Grass killed, relatively easy to turn over the ground and dig the bits of newspaper that are left after the winter into the soil.

        My sister now uses flattened cartons in her big veg garden as mulch—weed suppressant. Not so picturesque, but it works. And is a good way to recycle some of the cartons that keep arriving on one’s door step.

        • wet dog August 2, 2021 at 3:00 pm #

          Yes, I’ve done it like that, too, with a big wad of paper smothering the weeds. The only difference is that I don’t dig it over when spring hits, but just cover with compost and plant in that.

          Once those permanent weeds are gone, it gets a lot easier – they can be ruthless.

          • Not_GeorgeT August 2, 2021 at 8:57 pm #

            The brown construction paper rolls will also work. Check labels, make sure it’s paper without any chemicals. A few layers (I used 3) does the job, very easy to use.

            12″ to 15″ dirt (want to call it soil for a better sound?) on top of the paper, held in place by the untreated wood forming the raised beds.

            I did it with the layers on the grass, built raised beds on top of the layers. It has worked well, am in growing year #2.

        • stelmosfire August 2, 2021 at 2:40 pm #

          As far as evictions go they are still handled by the courts. Pre pandemic the process was lengthy. The courts must be super backlogged. I don’t think anyone is getting tossed in the near future. If they do get tossed the back rent judgement will follow them around forever. Not that they’ll pay it or anything.Luckily I keep my rents low and have good people renting. 35 years and I’ve never been in housing court.

    This national freak-show-of-the-mind might account for the many recent instances of science talking out of its booty-hole, led by its very personification, Dr. Anthony (“The Science”) Fauci, proud papa of SARS-CoV-2 (stage-name: Covid-19), with all its fabulous HIV and monkeypox gain-of-function bells and whistles. Dr. Fauci’s mighty, 20-year effort to bring forth this gift to mankind ….

    Thank you Jim for addressing this. Following the narrative that covid-19 is real, it seems that even the MSM have accepted the fact that covid-19 was most likely created in a lab through gain of function research. And with only a little investigation, one finds that the SARS gain of function research was not only funded by NIAID, but was also being conducted within several US labs. And while all those trusty fact checkers are still claiming that this is another conspiracy theory, for those who still believe, it must be a real shocker to have to confront the fact that the guy who has been given the power to dictate national public health decisions (masking, lockdowns, jabs, etc.) is also the guy responsible for the creation of this “virus” and ultimately as well for its accidental/intentional release.

    • Night Owl August 2, 2021 at 3:23 pm #

      I think the shots were created in the lab. The MRNA tech. programs cells to produce the toxic spike protein, which is also shed or emitted from the same individual and can damage individuals in close contact with the dupe who got the shot.

      There is no evidence that the “virus” is anything other than a run-of-the-mill Corona virus, with flu-like symptoms. The people who die from it are the same ones who die every year from flu, pneumonia, etc. Senior citizens with pre-existing conditions.

    This summary of the current is as good as it gets — as is the situation itself. It’s downhill from here for a couple of reasons not limited to the
    following:

    The science is now completely corrupt as scientists are dependent on and measured by their ability to draw grants (from government or private industry) and will therefore not contradict their paymasters in any way.

    Our political leaders have evolved through selection pressure to have a limited skill set consisting of fund raising and ceaseless self promotion.

    A good portion of the population is imbecile and has an “in silico” view of reality (as seen on some screen). A large portion of the intellectual “elite” is neurotic and psychotic.

    As keeping the peace is the most difficult task I expect nuclear war to solve the problem of overpopulation in the not too distant future.

    • AKlein August 3, 2021 at 4:05 pm #

      Michael, you may be on to something regarding your prognostication of impending nuclear war! I’m sure you’ve read of Klaus Schwab’s utterance that “You will own nothing and be happy”. Perhaps Mr. Schwab didn’t explain his pretext of why you will own nothing; which may be that there will be nothing left to own! Further, your being “happy” in such a circumstance is vacuously provable. Perhaps you’ve solved Schwab’s riddle!

      “raw and brutal Martial law?” Others say “a brutal regime of total control.” I looked the word brutal up – one meaning is ‘harsh, unpleasant, the other is “direct and without attempting to disguise unpleasantness.” I guess that is what you intended by using the word Raw.

  42. Yohannon August 2, 2021 at 1:06 pm #

    The essence of the Covidian religion is described by a metaphor from Milton’s “Paradise Lost”. The apple is the jab.

    The results of her fall begin at once. She thinks that earth is a long way from Heaven and God may not have seen her (811-16); the doom of Nonsense is already at work. Next she decides that she will not tell Adam about the fruit. She will exploit her secret to become his equal – or no, better still, his superior (817-25). The rebel is already aiming at tyranny. But presently she remembers that the fruit may, after all, be deadly. She decides that if she is to die, Adam must die with her; it is intolerable that he should be happy, and happy (who knows?) with another woman when she is gone. I am not sure that critics always notice the precise sin which Eve is now committing, yet there is no mystery about it. Its name in English is Murder. If the fruit is to produce deity Adam shall have none of it; she means to do a corner in divinity. But if it means death, then he must be made to eat it, in order that he may die – for that reason and no other, as her words make perfectly plain (826-30). And hardly has she made this resolve before she is congratulating herself upon it as a singular proof of the tenderness and magnanimity of her love (830-3).

    If the precise movement of Eve’s mind at this point is not always noticed, that is because Milton’s truth to nature is here almost too great, and the reader is involved in the same illusion as Eve herself. The whole thing is so quick, each new element of folly, malice, and corruption enters so unobtrusively, so naturally, that it is hard to realize we have been watching the genesis of murder. We expect something more like Lady Macbeth’s ‘unsex me here’. But Lady Macbeth speaks thus after the intention of murder has already been fully formed in her mind. Milton is going close to the actual moment of decision. Thus, and not otherwise, does the mind turn to embrace evil. No man, perhaps, ever at first described to himself the act he was about to do as Murder, or Adultery, or Fraud, or Treachery, or Perversion; and when he hears it so described by other men he is (in a way) sincerely shocked and surprised. Those others ‘don’t understand’. If they knew what it had really been like for him, they would not use those crude ‘stock’ names. With a wink or a titter, or in a cloud of muddy emotion, the thing has slipped into his will as something not very extraordinary, something of which, rightly understood and in all his highly peculiar circumstances, he may even feel proud. If you or I, reader, ever commit a great crime, be sure we shall feel very much more like Eve than like Iago.”

    -C.S. Lewis

    from C.S Lewis’ introduction to Paradise Lost.

    Think of all the terrible things you have done. Surely you can remember going thru some of these psychological stages? Having some of these same feelings as Eve had, though hopefully not to this degree?

    • SW August 2, 2021 at 4:11 pm #

      It’s called rationalization and I don’t know one person (myself included) who isn’t an expert. A friend described hell to me this way: we have to face our own actions with no excuses and look at the effect it’s had on other people. Gulp.

  43. JohnAZ August 2, 2021 at 1:20 pm #

    Good Monday morning.

    Few things.

    Vaccine’s alert to the immune system seems to be narrower that the ability of the virus to mutate. They picked the s protein as the antigen, the part that changes. Not smart.

    One data point that of course is ignored, of the Cape Cod breakout, in the group that were vaxxed, did they take, did they have positive titers, IOW, antibodies? This really sounds stupid in hindsight, but did any one check how many folks who were vaxxed actually titered positive? Remember my story about not titering positive twice with Hep B. Other groups have done the same, immunized folks getting the crud.

    What if the large percentage never reacted? What if unless you reacted very negatively to the vaccine, you did not react at all. Then the government declares, “all is well”, and tells everyone to go out and play. Then another variant shows up and kapow , only the reacted folks have any resistance.

    Hopefully, this surge will be less due to the ability of some vaxxed folks to hold it off, plus the natural folks that got the crud.

    If the ability of the virus to mutate itself is wider than the vaxx ability to cover the distance changed, or especially if more than the natural reaction of the alpha variety, we are stuck with this bug. Right now are reassessing the intensity of delta, ie hospitalization and mortality.

    Do we have a tiger by the tail?

    • JohnAZ August 2, 2021 at 1:22 pm #

      Supposedly, they are working on a vaxx that will come from other parts of the virus. Better hurry.

      MQ If it is just a flu, they better find a part of that flu to use for a vaxx.

    • MaryQueen August 2, 2021 at 4:15 pm #

      What is ‘stupid’ (but done on purpose) IMHO is that people should have gotten tested for the antibodies before getting a jab.

      Another stupid thing is vaccinating people during a so-called pandemic.

      Another stupid thing is, they couldn’t make a vaccine for SARS-1 in 18 years but suddenly they could make one for SARS-2?

      The most stupid thing is there is no such thing as ‘cases’ because of a PCR ‘test’.

      Nothing adds up, JAZ.

      • Not_GeorgeT August 2, 2021 at 9:05 pm #

        They couldn’t make a vaccine, but spent a lot of $$. Spent more still on new manufactured crises. Thus the need to then change the definition of pandemic from deaths to cases.

        Now the cases myth is either A) imploding or B) exploding, I think you can still choose A or B and arrive at the same place.

    • Bill7 August 2, 2021 at 7:03 pm #

      JohnAZ said: “..If the ability of the virus to mutate itself is wider than the vaxx ability to cover the distance changed, or especially if more than the natural reaction of the alpha variety, we are stuck with this bug. Right now are reassessing the intensity of delta, ie hospitalization and mortality.”

      Who is “we”? Have you noticed, JohnAZ, there there is no *excess mortality*, i.e. people actually dying in larger numbers since the “pandemic” was rolled out seventeen-plus months ago?

      As for the new, perhaps possibly ultra-deadly “Delta Strain”, I’ll
      I’ll reserve judgment, except for the above comments.

Which version of unhealthy restaurant chain good to eat for lunch today? Is eating lunch racist? Do I want my University to join the SEC, too? If I refuse to participate in my scheduled business meeting this afternoon because ‘I just don’t feel like it’… can I become a National Hero too?

    Does Not-So-Good-Doctor-Fraudci want me to wear a mask or three or not? Maybe a burka emblazoned with Big Pharma Woke Corporation logos on it? Will the ninth or tenth jab in the arm finally make me safe to out in public without being a horrible, disease-carrying menace to the Planet? Maybe I feel like self-identifying as a Goose today. That’s now allowed, right? Reality is whatever we feel like it is, right? Honk…honk…

    Let’s face it. So many things pretty much suck these days. That’s one way to look at it. But there is another approach. We are all on one giant bus that has gone off the freeway overpass with wicked speed and reckless abandon. We can lament about how this isn’t what we signed up for and how we wish we had a smooth ride to a sensible destination. Or, we can put a wide grin on our face, sit back in our uncomfortable chair, rip off our damn face cloth, wail out a scream, open our eyes wide as saucers, throw our heavily punctured and bloodied arms high up into the air, toss off our corporate burkas for one last precious moment of freedom before Orwell’s boot turns us into pancaked Big Reset road kill.

    “Is it really too much to declare that this regime has got to go, and go as soon as possible?”

    One day… sooner or later… this chair-warming regime will be gone one way or the other. Undoubtedly to be replaced by one that is WORSE. Such is the Law of Devolution and Decay in the ‘21st Century Not-So-Great Wokester Age of Delusion, Confusion, and Obfuscation’. And above all, Devolution in all things.

      “We can lament about how this isn’t what we signed up for and how we wish we had a smooth ride to a sensible destination.” I agree with you b/c I can. I live in a safe, comfortable home with access to alcohol. Who could ask for anything more?

      But I see (as I’m sure you do too) the future snatched away from my children and grandchildren and, modest as my circumstances are, I’m worried they won’t even be able to count on that.

    The third leading cause of death in the U.S. is directly attributable to medical error. Over 250,000 per year gone to the Great Beyond because the system is bloated, incompetent, uncaring, and funded in byzantine chicanery. The numbers would be even higher were it not for official death warrants being altered through political expediency by listing the co-morbidities, exactly how “Covid” is toe-tagged to a weak, respiratory-compromised 85 year-old who got a bad flu, when pneumonia was the common late stage check point.

    Johns Hopkins, one of the leading medical centers, states, pre-Covid, that “medical errors aren’t due to inherently bad doctors”, though they certainly exist, but “represent systemic problems, including poorly coordinated care, fragmented insurance networks, the absence or underuse of safety nets , and other protocols, and in addition to unwarranted variation in physician practice patterns that lack accountability”.

    The shocking post-jab deaths are likely nothing compared to what could happen long-term to the enthusiastic guinea pigs. Hospitals overwhelmed with the sick, and, even in milder case rates with a somehow wiser system, unable to administer effective relief, let alone cures, to a genetic reordering on an unprecedented scale.

    After decades of experimental psych meds binned because of the “side effect” of permanent disability and death, the worldwide “patient” not only doesn’t receive the subsequent black box warning on the remainder that the authorities allow, they’re constantly browbeaten with social ostracization if they don’t comply.

    Another angle I have to mention: the PTB are also effectively splitting up the family and wider community web — something they’ve planned and implemented for a long time — by pitting the refuseniks against the jab proponents. I’ve been disheartened, and, I admit, a little surprised, by how foolish and gullible many of my friends and acquaintances have been by their enthusiastic championing of the drugs, and their mockery and/or strident opposition against the unvaxxed. I hate the word “defriend”, but lately I’m rejecting more than just the vax.

    • Mountain gal August 2, 2021 at 3:37 pm #

      I have had to decide to ride this out alone, basically, because of how they set up half of society to hate the other half.

      So I’ll be sorta lonely until this resolves one way or another.

      Thank goodness for like-minded online pals.

      I stand by it… covid will fade eventually as the main story. People will ease off it as it continues to be mostly ungrounded hype. Another distraction narrative will rise that is equally a diversion from real stories (overpopulation and long-term hydrocarbon dependence)

            Climate change has has been rundown the road for along times now. Perhaps it’s day in the sun is over, and the PTB know that. People are educated about the impossibility of any substantial change to make AGW change.

            Is Covid another handle on people? The PTB may be grand planning new ways to continue controlling things. Is Covid a trial? Covid is going to run its course, the UK is already showing declines,

      • Soul Forensics August 2, 2021 at 4:28 pm #

        I don’t have an answer, but the funniest part of watching the Olympics, when I flick it on for a few minutes, is the coaches wearing their face diapers, but taking them off only to talk (breath, spew droplets) directly into the faces of their charges. Same thing in pro sports.

          Our Black female sprinter who got banned for pot dresses like a drag queen. Huge biceps. Did they test her for testosterone? Maybe she is a man. Maybe the pot was to mask that, eh Q? Eh?

          Why not a have a new Olympic sport of running in five inch heels?

          Or how about the amputees who run on blades? That’s the only way a White guy can win (like the South African champ who shot his girlfriend. If they keep allowing that, soon people will be cutting off their feet in order to get blades.

          I’m glad you are obsessed with the Human Zoo that is the Olympics. The Play is the Comedy, “Man”. And the real hero is the Conqueror Worm.

          I see a lot coming at you, me and everyone else. This virus/jab thing is big, please don’t misunderstand.

          I want to add in all the low-hanging energy fruit is gone. The stuff a little more difficult to reach is being harvested.

          There isn’t anything in line at present to replace it, thus a huge problem. It’s not the first time in history, just the latest occurrence of the theme.

          Without adequate supply, the things produced by energy (which is just about everything) will come to a rather swift halt.

          If I don the tinfoil, this vaxx thing will lower energy needs by lowering the population. At least this might be in the minds of those with a huge amount of power and money to protect.

          Complex civilizations can undergo a rapid collapse. We could be living in a collapse now.

          Energy takes many forms. In human history wood was the fuel for thousands of years, it was the the source of energy to fuel the furnaces to make the metals and the stuff for building ships.

          Witness the massive deforestation of parts of the planet the past few thousand years. For some locations (Canary Islands, Azores) one need only go back a few hundred years.

          Precipice, the energy cliff, is directly at our feet.

        It is easy to say if you have a roof over your head, the means to survive a few years without a job, the means to earn alternative income, and a few good contacts here and there. I can say it because I had ongoing projects before this thing came along and these projects now have a life of their own irrespective of the development of this thing except for the most jarring of scenarios. I of course answer people that I am jabbed when asked with a boastful “Of course!” and that seems to work, and that is how I escape the possible malevolence of the jabbed. At work, I just said No (haha0 and one will see what, if anything at all, comes up. Remember the best laid plans of malfeasance can go wrong and work to opposite effects. As for avenues of life and pleasure, who can block friendship and other sundry things? I try to look at the jabbed and the unjabbed as two sides of the same coin facing this thing.. this “Zug.”

    Logged in just to say “Well Done!” Jim.
    Your recent posts have been absolutely stellar.

    Loved this (double-new-word-for-the-week) line: “…freshman hopping up and down outside the Yale faculty lounge to gurn at the sherry-sipping toffs within.”

    Even the blog software puts a red squiggly line under “gurn” which, according to the urban dictionary means:

    “The act of ones jaw vibrating, clenching or protruding. This happens whilst under the influence of various drugs such as MDMA, Ecstasy, Speed etc. The morning after gurning all evening is very painful, and this is how people ruin their teeth on drugs. The person who is under the influence usually chews on gum to stop themselves clenching or to stop their constant chomping on their bare teeth. Too much gurning can lock-up your jaw in which it cannot move at all.”

    Wiki’s def is not as fun:

    “A gurn or chuck, in British English, is an extremely distorted and particular facial expression and a verb to describe the action. A typical gurn involves projecting the lower jaw as far forward and up as possible and covering the upper lip with the lower lip.”

    Reposting to today’s chapter cuz it is interesting:

    Today the Columbia Journalism Review’s “media” email feed (which I normally ignore) had the headline “How major media outlets screwed up the vaccine ‘breakthrough’ story”

    By “screwed up” I reckon they mean created a chink in the “narrative.”

    Here it is at their site:
    https://www.cjr.org/
    You might have to sign up in order to see the story, but it is free . . .

    Here is the first graf:
    Late Thursday, the Washington Post landed what looked like a big scoop: the paper obtained an unpublished slide presentation from inside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggesting that the Delta variant of the coronavirus spreads as easily as chickenpox, and that fully vaccinated people who become infected with the variant may be able to pass it on in a way similar to unvaccinated people who become infected. (The slides were based in part on data about a COVID outbreak linked to Provincetown, Massachusetts; on Friday, the CDC published that data.) Although “breakthrough” infections in vaccinated people are rare, and it’s even rarer that they result in hospitalization or death, major news organizations sometimes missed this crucial context as they rushed to confirm the Post’s story and spit it out via headlines and push alerts. A tweet from the New York Times?“The Delta variant is ass contagious as chickenpox and may be spread by vaccinated people as easily as the unvaccinated, an internal CDC report said”?camee in for particularly sharp criticism. “VACCINATED PEOPLE DO NOT TRANSMIT THE VIRUS AT THE SAME RATE AS UNVACCINATED PEOPLE,” Ben Wakana, a communications staffer for the White House’s coronavirus response team, shot back. “IF YOU FAIL TO INCLUDE THAT CONTEXT YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG.”

    ++++++
    Moi:

    I love also weasly words
    ##”suggesting that,”

    ##”vaccinated people who become infected with the variant **may be able**

    ##”Although “breakthrough” infections in vaccinated people are rare, and it’s even rarer that they result in hospitalization or death,”

    So, um, if that is the case, then what is the need for more
    lockdowns???

    OTOH, this looks pretty clear:
    “The Delta variant is as contagious as chickenpox and may be spread by vaccinated people as easily as the unvaccinated, an internal CDC report said””

    So, what’s the problem?
    Per the WH, the CDC is wrong??
    CDC statistics are unreliable???
    The CDC is lying?

    A retail business in my rural town had put in place elaborate mask and occupancy rules (2 persons at a time and wait in your car until there are not 2 people in the store), had employees wear masks outside, and they put up a BLM sign in a town that is about 1/3 “country folk Republican” (loosely generalizing).

    They closed this week after 5 years in business due to reduced store traffic. Personally, I used to shop there but stopped as soon as the BLM sign went up.

    I suspect they blame Trump for their business closing.

    I don’t agree with his politics, but I harbor no malice towards Jimmy Dore.

    But I am literally flabbergasted that he took the Jab. Jimmy Dore would be the last person who I’d expect who would just “trust” somebody who told him to take the shot. He’s probably got one foot in the grave already? He literally got conned.

    I hope that Jimmy Dore is ok, but that may be more wishful, magical thinking?

    Good Lord!

      He trusted his doctor. Famous last words. It’s not going well for him at all.

      Now they’re calling the vaccine injured “long haulers”. As predicted: complete conflation between “covid” and the vaccine. One may or may not be real and is pretty harmless for most. One is very real and dangerous.

      Re Jimmy Dore:

      Copy that. I would never have expected Jimmy Dore to fall for the horse shit.

      But am very sorry, and I am glad that he is going public on his show.
      I think he has a fairly large audience.

      Very telling, too, what he says about the turds who turn on him in his Twitter feed. I think that is a result or a symptom of the hypnotic or entrainment effect of the propaganda op—as described by the Gent fellow at the Corona Ausschuss: People will turn viciously on anyone who dissents from their new belief system, even if the person is actually suffering. No empathy. Loss of empathy. Or, such people have no potential for empathy in the first place.

      Sending positive thoughts to Jimmy Dore. IMO he has made a significant contribution as a modern version of the “wise fool” or court jester. He has not been afraid to call out BS where he saw it. IMO the big weakness of his show is the Greek chorus of four idiots who parrot what Jimmy says but with are not funny. And not easy on the eyes any of them either. Jimmy does not need them.

      I hope he can continue his show.

        Matt Taibbi also fell for it. Which was really surprising to me.

        • Night Owl August 3, 2021 at 2:53 am #

          It does not surprise me. He is an egoist and, as a result, a fence-sitter.

          His best work comes when it is safe to jump into the fight.

          He just did a piece on CJ Hopkins and the intro. is basically a disclaimer that marginalizes CJ as an extremist, less his audience think he would ever agree with someone so “fringe.”

          CJ, is of course a truthteller and has more balls than Taibbi ever will.

          • Islander August 3, 2021 at 7:52 am #

            Taibbi has done some very good work.
            But he also seems to stop short on the deep dive and ends up detouring his discussion into “safe” waters.

            I am a big fan of CJ Hopkins, and anyone who dismisses him as “extremist”—well, truth tellers of different stripes should not be dismissing other truth tellers with derogatory labels. They should engage with their arguments.

            This also goes for Hopkins.
            I understand (have not see this myself but have read—sorry I cannot recall where) that Hopkins has turned on Glenn Greenwald as some kind of turncoat because he has had interviews with Tucker Carlson. These appear to be purely ad-hom attacks based on a view of Carlson’s political colors.

            IMO Greenwald has provided the best (that I have seen) presentation in a videocast with well crafted arguments as to the importance of getting beyond right/left categories to understand what is currently transpiring and who/what is behind it, and to create a front to fight it.

            So if Hopkins is joining in on the “dump on Greenwald” bandwagon then he is IMO in the wrong and has on similar blinders as Taibbi.

            I am fully aware of apparent negatives in Greenwald’s CV, such as the odd sequence of events concerning Snowden/WikiLeaks/Assange/Guardian/The Intercept.

            I focus on what Greenwald is saying today.

            Hopkins and Taibbi should both be listening, whether Greenwald is broadcatsing directly from his study in Brazil or via Carlson’s studio.

            I don’t agree with Carlson re China. But I think it is amazing that he has had interviews with Greenwald, Dr. McCullough, Naomi Wolf, and others. Carlson reaches millions of viewers.

            It is worth recalling that resisters to the Third Reich were to be found on the right, the left, and some in the middle. They were successfully atomized by the regime.

            Remember: Politics makes strange bedfellows.

          • Night Owl August 3, 2021 at 11:42 am #

            You make good points, Islander.

            I like them all when it comes down to it – Greenwald, Hopkins, Carlson, and Taibbi.

            I just get annoyed with Taibbi as he plays it too safe. He is smart enough to know what is going on in the general sense, but he is also an egoist and fears the slings and arrows that come with crossing the mainstream lines in the sand.

            He does great work once the guardrails are removed, but he is not the kind of guy you want around when the enemy has shown it has no limits on what it is willing to do to impose its will.

          • MaryQueen August 3, 2021 at 8:23 pm #

            Oh wow I must have missed that. I had thought Taibbi was coming around.

            He was able to denounce some of his own past stances and behavior, so I thought he might be ‘getting it’.

            But apparently I’m wrong.

            I like some of his pieces lately but they still do smack of ‘not-so-obvious-establishment’ at the end of the day.

            CJ is marvelous yes, and 10x the journalist Matt will ever be.

          • MaryQueen August 4, 2021 at 9:11 pm #

            You’re right.

            I became a paid subscriber and he did some great stuff on CRT, but now he considers the vaccine a ‘triumph’. So I unsubscribed.

          • MaryQueen August 5, 2021 at 10:26 pm #

            Islander, I agree with that. I hope CJ comes around. Greenwald is doing great work now that he’s untethered.

            I mean really stellar stuff. I’m glad he still gets heard on MSM as well.

      • MaryQueen August 2, 2021 at 10:57 pm #

    Why are we not getting vaccinated? Because Russia! Bizarre.

    The article says 93% of Democrats are vaccinated compared to only 49% of Republicans. Good news if so: America will be getting much more conservative, assuming it is still here.

    ” It was only a week ago that the American Medical Association (AMA) declared that the category formerly known as “sex” must be removed from US birth certificates — replaced, one supposes, by a tacit “to-be-determined” status in the great Progressive rush to extract the human race from the animal kingdom ”

    Well , for the record , and in all seriousness , I HAVE BEEN OPPOSED , ALL TOGETHER , TO BIRTH CERTIFICATES ,

    for …. about two decades ?

    Why ??

    Julius Caesar and George Washington seemed to get along just fine without birth certificates , and the sky didn’t seem to fall.

    Indeed , near as I can tell , pretty much the entire species got along just fine without birth certificates for 50,000 years.

    And the sky didn’t fall.

    For another thing , why exactly should the burden be on me to explain why ?

    It seems to me that the burden of proof should be on the person MAKING A DEMAND , not on the person DEMANDING NOTHING.

    I’m not demanding anything , so I shouldn’t have to explain shit.

    But , ok —

    So you say that birth certificates could serve good purposes ?

    The trouble is that for every good purpose you could name , you could just as well , and just as easily , name an evil purpose.

    For example , a really fucking bizarre factoid about the Rwandan Genocide was that it wasn’t just foreigners and outsiders who couldn’t tell the difference between Hutu’s and Tutsi’s.

    FACT WAS , NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN , THE AVERAGE RWANDAN COULDN’T” TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HUTU AND A TUTSI EITHER !

    So how the fuck did the Interahamwe KNOW WHO to exterminate ??

    Because tribal affiliation * was noted on Rwandan identity cards and birth certificates , that’s how.

    ( The ” Tribes ” in question don’t really exist , except on paper. But that’s the subject for a separate book – length essay )

    Think about that ;

    Roughly a million people were hacked to death with machetes or shot because of a notation on a piece of paper.

    Or maybe you shouldn’t think about it ?

    For 50,000 years we didn’t even have birth certificates ,

    but now it’s practically a CRIMINAL ACT to be morally , philosophically, or ideologically opposed to birth certificates.

    ( ” Opposed ” as in you don’t like it , and you may even SAY you don’t like it , but YOU DO GO ALONG WITH IT ANYWAY . )

    That whole circumstance often strikes me as being more profoundly depressing than the thought of being shot or hacked to death.

    It’s so ludicrously , outrageously , petty.

    Isn’t the theory of Antibody Dependent Enhancement that the antibodies perversely act to facilitate the virus entering the cells rather than defending the body from the virus? Here, it may be an even bigger clusterfuck because the Spike Proteins produced in response to the mRNA vaccines that are supposed to be the catalyst for the body to produce the antibodies also facilitate the Covid 19 virus to enter the cells. It’s a big huge Double Fuck? The mRNA vaccines may be creating a superhighway for Covid 19 virus to enter the cells, thereby, transforming a relatively benign virus into a bona fide lethal pandemic?

    Speaking of petty stuff —-

    If anyone happens to know of a source for Interhamwe shirts I would appreciate the heads – up.

    I have been looking for an Interhamwe shirt for years without success.

    I think it would be funny as hell to stroll down the street wearing an Interhamwe shirt , which would be roughly akin to strolling down the street wearing a Nazi Party pin .

    Except it would be ok in this case , because 999 out of a thousand people wouldn’t know what the fuck they were looking at

    And , as I said , that strikes me as funny as hell.

    ” I’ll look at the results of the first long-scale trials of the “covid
    vaccines” when they’re completed, in late 2023. ”

    That timeline could be a bit optimistic ?

    For example ;

    ” It can take up to 40 years for mesothelioma symptoms to appear, so it’s best to get checked even if you were exposed to asbestos long ago. ”

    ( i.e. Like , 50 + years ago. I tried looking up the question , ” Just how long was Asbestos A – OK and , ” The Miracle Fiber ” ? But apparently it is a long and involved subject. )

    Or , near as I can tell , Gottlieb Daimler and Henry Ford NEVER remotely foresaw traffic jams , a person taking an hour to go six blocks , thousands upon thousands of acres of strip malls and heat islands , geography itself as a virtual slave to their invention , etc.

    And to be fair , I think , how could they possibly have foreseen such things ?

    I would say that you could fairly say generally that the past 300 years of human history could be summed up ;

    A lot of people pretended they knew what they were doing , when in fact they didn’t have the faintest fucking clue what they were doing.

    End of story.

      • Islander August 3, 2021 at 10:09 am #

        Messianicdruid, I agree.

        People did not wait for RCTs before they tried out the efficacy of variolation, and other remedies “discovered” by generations of highly observant humans.

        Re studies of ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, etc. Dr. McCullough has pointed out that last year, when the world was waiting to hear of treatments, studies on those and other drugs were either utterly corrupted or actually ***shut down*** once the vaccine propaganda wave really got rolling in the summer.

        So IMO anyone who says “We need scientific studies on ivermectin,” such as Joe Rogan, is ignorant and is missing an important opportunity to disseminate important info. Who is going to pay for studies on drugs that are not covered by patents?

    • Bill7 August 3, 2021 at 12:09 am #

    VAERS COVID Vaccine Data

    Reports from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.
    Our data reflects all VAERS data including the “nondomestic” reports.

    518,769 Reports

    through July 23, 2021*

    https://www.openvaers.com/covid-data

    Take a gander, folks. Keep in mind, this is estimated to be 1% reporting, since most doctors don’t report or even know about VAERS.

    • gustafson.robert.22 August 2, 2021 at 11:39 pm #

        My father got shingles after the jab. He had a shingles shot 4 years prior. The DR said it was because he did not get the more recent Shingrix vax which would have prevented it.

        My friend’s husband got the vax in Feb/March. Fifty three years old, excellent health. He got the pneumonia vax a couple of weeks ago. Got really sick, positive for COVID. He is extremely fatigued and is sleeping many hours a day.

    Another great blog post. i don’t see anything changing for the better anytime soon, though. Facts and evidence don’t matter in this shit show of a banana republic we live in. The tree of liberty has been waiting to be refreshed for over a century now.
    So many thought Trump would be our savior. I didn’t. I hoped but was sadly disappointed when on January 20th, he tucked his tail between his legs and let President * take office. I even held out hope a little past that date before I realized that nothing was going to change except for the worse. Trump was gathering undeniable evidence while the steal was in progress but did nothing except ask his supporters to show up in DC on Jan 6th to fight for our country, and in doing so, he led them to their damnation and they sit in purgatory still to this day. He does the rally scene, collecting hundreds of millions of dollars from desperate and naive people who STILL believe in him. SMH. People need to be spending their hard earned wages to prepare for the coming storm. The midterms will have the same results as did the 2020 primary. Not that I won’t go out and try to vote good people into office next November but I don’t expect it to make any difference. While hope is essential, people need to batteen down the hatches

    • Yohannon August 2, 2021 at 11:42 pm #

      Yes, in fact he should. He knew quite a bit. That the testing, which is the basis for all of this hysteria, is a complete fraud. So instead of retweeting disenting doctors at night in the White House Basement, he should have just told us the Truth in prime time.

      As for the Test, he absurdly just said we should stop testing while most believed we were in the middle of a deadly disease. He was mocked to scorn because he was afraid to tell the whole Truth as he knew it. He probably doesn’t know all of it, but he knew enough. It’s hard to con a con-man like Trump.

      There was never any emergency yet he signed that damn thing and got the ball rolling.

      • Night Owl August 3, 2021 at 7:06 am #

        That doesn’t make any sense. Where is the evidence that he knew the testing was fraudulent. The fact that the PCR test didn’t work and that Drosten and his WEF overlords put the scam together is a fairly recent discovery.

        The people who created the test are affiliated with the groups who most wanted Trump out.

        The most logical answer for Trump is that he was genuine in his love of the country and desire to put us back on a course to maintain hegemonic status. Every single state organ and foreign adversary that worked against him (in some of the most egregious political theater/scandals ever seen in US history), are now pushing all the stuff that those of us with an IQ above that of a bag of hair knew was coming down the pipe.

        What evidence is there whatsoever that Trump was some kind of double agent? He was a smart guy who was surrounded. There are many things I don’t agree with him on, but to this day, I still see virtually no one who could take over the reins. And lets be honest, the Presidency is largely symbolic.

        We are run by the intelligence and international banking communities.

        • Yohannon August 3, 2021 at 9:50 am #

          Early on it was evident that “cases” had little or nothing to do with actual symptoms, hospitalizations, and deaths. Also early was Fauci’s talking about anything above 35 cycles being meaningless.

          Trump said, If we stop testing, the whole things will just go away. He’s smart and I think he knew. Beyond that, he’s close to the Elite if not part of them. He must have heard something about what was coming down. And noticed the vast coordination being put into play.

          • MaryQueen August 3, 2021 at 10:15 am #

            I agree with both of you in part. First, that the presidency is largely symbolic, and that the deep state runs the show. Second, that Trump should have done something to stop this train wreck. OTOH, if he did, would he have ended up like JFK?

            We don’t know. What I do know is that he left his followers in the lurch, and they pine away in solitary confinement. We know he gave up the fight to prove election fraud, and that he continues to promote the vaccine. We also know that he decided to elevate Fauci over Atlas, which is the opposite of what he should have done.

          • Night Owl August 3, 2021 at 11:37 am #

      He wanted the Pfizer branded ‘The Trump Vaccine’ if he’d succeeded, the Blue States wouldn’t be taking it and the Red States would have streets littered with decaying bodies, apparently.

    Anti-vaxxers, of course, are constantly demonized. So too, now, are the vaccine hesitant. (Soon, those who “only” get two or three jabs will also be pressured.) Konstantin Kisin, in a twitter thread, explains:

    When things don’t add up?

    There’s a great lot of stuff than doesn’t add up, plus stories that don’t compute, and configurations that make no sense, the preponderance of these head-scratchers pointing to a monumentally corrupt and incompetent American ruling class that’s been foisting stupid shit now on the USA and the world for at least a couple of generations. Hardly matters where you look, it’s so thick on the ground you don’t know where to start shoveling.

    But maybe start big instead of small and so look to where there’s numbers that we can look at and that would be the national coffers, stuffed to the brim with Fed Funny Money because it seems that the people most able to pay tax really don’t want to.

    If Bezos who is supposedly worth 200 bil, give or take, had to cough up let’s say 199 bil he’d still be worth a billion. IOW still a billionaire. He could cough up hundreds of millions more and still be a centimillionaire.

    And then look at the other obvious guys like Gates and Buffet – or you could just go down the donor list for the Democrat and Republican parties – and scrape up some serious loot. And then put the gun to the heads of overseas banks and leaders of tax havens where a lot of rich Americans stash their money and see how much more you can rake in.

    I know, I’ve heard it said many a time, that there aren’t enough rich people to fund the annual deficit never mind the national debt. But has it ever been tried? In any case we have to start somewhere. And that’s where the money is.

      You think of money as stored energy, something tangible like barrels of oil or boxes of dried meat – put there to get one thru the winter. And it should be so. But in our world money is blue smoke and mirrors. It exists more in the imagination of men than in reality.

      To put it another way. You think you can heat your cabin with wood from your neighbor’s wood pile. But when you go to check out his woodpile, you find no wood, just some paper promises from assorted people to supply wood in the future. And they don’t have any wood either.

      Our monetary system is debt based not asset (gold) based. It can collapse into a big black sucking hole of default and bankruptcy if you ever try to turn a lot of theoretical value into tangible value – because value isn’t really there.

        If rich people had to pay a lot more taxes, they would raise the money largely by selling their stocks. A stampede of sellers, few buyers; what happens to price? You guessed it, straight down. And that’s destroys the middle classes pension funds and 401 K’s.

        Today’s market is vastly overpriced and a correction to fair value would devastate a lot of people who think the stock market is a savings account. Thanks to decades of government intervention, no markets are priced to fair value. This makes the system fragile.

        Money should represent value added to society, but it doesn’t when the FED cranks it out of thin air. Turning Bezos’ $200 billion into things people can use is not such as easy task because the money is an illusion, a book keeping entry.

          Yeah, that’s why I’ve been asking, why do we need income tax when the Fed can “crank money out of thin air” as you succinctly put it?

            Control, BRH, it’s all about control. Taxes here in The Land of the Free may ONLY be paid in U.S. dollars. The very instant that’s NOT the case, the dollar is worthless. Careful what you wish for!
