Why on earth would any American with a functioning brain believe what he /she /they is being told by the public health officialdom, the politicians, or the news media? For two years, they have lied to you about everything relating to the Covid-19 virus, including where it came from, how it was developed, who sponsored its development, how the vaccines happened to come onstage thirty seconds after the disease entered the scene, how well the vaccines worked, how safe the vaccines were, and whether there were other cheap and effective treatments for the disease.

So, here we are with nearly 200-million Americans fully vaccinated (and 230-million with at least one dose), plus 47-million overall officially registered cases of Covid illness (conferring immunity among the survivors), plus X-number people infected with no symptoms, or people who didn’t get tested when sick, or didn’t bother going to see a doctor or report to a hospital, plus X-number of people with natural immunity to Covid for one reason or another (maybe a high number, based on the Diamond Princess cruise ship ratio of a Pareto-type 80 / 20 distribution) — and now, in the fall of 2021, here comes another surge of Covid-19 among both the vaxxed and un-vaxxed.

Did all that vaxxing help? It apparently did nothing to prevent transmission of the disease. The vaxxed were spreading it as effectively as the unvaxxed, and the vaxxed were catching the disease as easily, too, though supposedly suffering not as badly as the unvaxxed (if you choose to believe the official press releases, and why would you believe them?). Then, along came the reports of “adverse reactions” to the vaccines, many of them quite grave — clots, strokes, infarctions, neurological havoc, organ failure. In mid-October this year, the VAERS registry had it at 17,000 deaths and 26,000 permanent disabilities, and the rule-of-thumb was that these represented only 10 percent of the actual number of adverse events because the VAERS website was so badly designed that it crashed half the time any doctor tried to use it… plus the doctors were being silenced and punished for voicing any distrust of the vaccines.

Then why the mad rush to vaccinate all the children in America? There have been next-to-zero covid deaths among children besides a few hundred with grave co-morbidities like cancer or cystic fibrosis — and the hospitals had a cash subsidy incentive from the federal government to list them as dying “with Covid.” Children are far more likely to suffer harm from the vaccines than from the Covid-19 disease. The child vax experiment is only just underway, and there are already enough cases of myocarditis and other disorders to be very concerned. The medical establishment has no idea what the long-term effects on children might be, in particular on their reproductive systems, since the chief active ingredient in the vaccines, the spike protein, has a proclivity for the sexual organs. It happens, too, by the way, that mothers who got vaxxed in early 2021 are just now giving birth to babies with myocarditis and other signature disorders of adverse mRNA vaccine reactions. Keep your eye on that sub-plot of the story.

One wonders: is this child vax campaign an attempt to eliminate the last major control group in the population? (Or just to eliminate a big demographic chunk altogether?) Is it tied in some way to beating the release date for Pfizer’s “Comirnaty” vaccine — which would vacate the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) that protects the pharma companies from liability? Despite delirious propaganda from the likes of National Public Radio, the bad news is out, and the bad news is that the Covid vaccines for children are bad news. Parents ought to object to any official attempts to coerce them into vaxxing their kids, but will they? I’d guess that the reaction will be ferocious. Stand by on that.

Meanwhile, what would be an intelligent response to Covid-19 at this point? Well, how about letting it burn through the population as expeditiously as possible, along with an aggressive nationwide early treatment program using existing effective drugs such as ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, fluvoxamine, budesonide, monoclonal antibodies, for starters, along with vitamin D3, quercetin, zinc, selenium, N-acetyl L-cysteine (NAC)? That would minimize fatalities and confer superior natural immunity throughout the whole population.

Of course, one of the whopper lies you’re being told is that this early treatment protocol doesn’t work. Dozens of clinical studies in other countries and direct clinical experience in this country tell the opposite story: the early treatment protocols work remarkably well. The big question, eventually, will be: who might be held responsible in the public health and medical bureaucracies for militating against early treatment? Was it sheer epic incompetence, or something more malevolent?

    We were told people would be injured and possibly die from these bullshit, rushed to market experimental drugs that makes Bill Gates even wealthier. Now we are seeing more stories about world class athletes who have been injured after being vaxxed. Some European footballers i.e. Soccer players have collapsed on the pitch, i.e. soccer field.

      It’s going to take someone like LeBron James or Tom Brady to get the publics attention. Meanwhile people continue to believe the bullshit.

      • Walter B November 15, 2021 at 9:41 am #

        That’s why they jumped all over Aaron Rodgers! I never though much of him because of his fish like personality even though the man is seriously talented, but after his example with the Vax he gave us, he rose substantially in my estimation. Go Pack GO!

        • Beryl of Oyl November 15, 2021 at 10:07 am #

          They jumped all over Brady, when he didn’t wear a mask walking into the stadium for the Superbowl.

          They said he should have modeled better behavior. He did model better behavior.

          Otherwise intelligent people can’t connect the dots. It’s discouraging. And several of them are rabid vaxxers. Anecdotally, I have a mid 50s male friend, had an aneurysm. They are uncommon. Was he vaxxed? I think so, but think it’s impolite to ask. His brother in law “can’t wait” to give his kids the shot…

          Another woman, at least says she will wait before jabbing her kid. Perhaps because her father went out to rake leaves two weeks ago, and was found could and dead 45 minutes later. I understand it was totally unexpected.

          Two unexpected tragedies, one with a long uncertain road back, the other irreversible.

          The mandate is forcing many people to pick between their job and playing Russian roulette—and it’s working, unfortunately. A friend of mine, “shot is stupid”, took it anyway. Two years to retire… No ill effects, fortunately. Not yet, hopefully not ever. But, he caved.

          The 5th Circuit Decision, if complied with, is too late, but better late than never.

          A Greek friend who took it, and is not outwardly religious, says there will be 7 shots total. Who told her? That’s what the Orthodox monks said in OG’s link a few blogs back—first jab is a precursor, 7 shots for the mark of the beast.

          Some may roll their eyes… but think about the cult like, religious fervor, devotion to the shot. In the face of so much evidence it is harmful, can one really dismiss the possibility that it is an evil Trojan horse and precursor to something bigger than COVID?

          • thirdcoastlegend November 15, 2021 at 10:54 am #

            I nominate Fauci for Antichrist.

            Look at the cult that’s piled up around him during this mess.

          • Walter B November 15, 2021 at 11:05 am #

            I did not think that this injection was The Mark of The Beast at first, but as time plays out, if it comes to a point where the unvaxxed can no long buy or sell, or participate in any of society’s events, then it will indeed become The Mark, de facto. No religious exemptions? Kiss my ass Faucistein!

          • Daddyotis November 15, 2021 at 1:53 pm #

            I agree with Walter. It’s uncanny how closely this tracks with Revelation’s description of how those who refuse to take the mark will be treated. We’re only in the beginning scenes here. Extrapolate to the end. Remember when Biden et al ASSURED us that there would be no mandates, no demonization of those who chose not to take the jab? How does that compare with the current state of affairs? I’ll suggest again: extrapolate to a year or two down the road based upon this divergence.

          • Alfred November 15, 2021 at 3:10 pm #

            Always lead with, “did covid do that?”

            They’ll say, either, “it wasn’t covid,” or “no, they were vaxxed.”

          • ATM November 16, 2021 at 8:42 am #

            Friends brother got vaxxed and stroke one day later. Coincidence? Perhaps.

            Another friends otherwise very healthy 25 year old son got vaxxed. Developed serious heart issues that could not be overcome and he was taken off life support 2 weeks ago. Coincidence? Perhaps.

            I also know two people that died of or with COVID. Both were over 80 years old with health issues. Coincidence? Perhaps.

            Socrates

            We who find ourselves among the Resistors instead of the Herd will never understand what has happened in most of the world until we fully understand that the Pandemic is a mental disease, an example of mass psychosis that is a part of human nature. It is the same force that drives Australian policemen to become Storm Troopers, young German and French men to cower in trenches and shoot at each other, Americans to drop napalm on villages and children and atomic bombs on cities, Muslims and Christians to join jihads against those who do not worship the same false God as they, and soldiers everywhere to rape and kill the Mothers of future human generations.

            Those who contact the Disease are virtually immune to logic and reason. It is an open question as to whether they can ever be cured, but we have no alternative but to try..

        Or Aaron Rodgers who, although unvaxxed, was sick for a total of 48 hours with very mild symptoms and then was crucified for being a quack/liar, yet his therapy of ivermectin, anti-oxidants and monoclonal anti-bodies seems to have worked quite well.

    • Walter B November 15, 2021 at 9:39 am #

      Being the manipulating bag of human garbage that he is, Man-god Gates is terrified of a scenario where hoards of hungry, angry masses are searching out scum like him for retribution and a violent transfer of wealth. Think of him as a modern day Louis the 16th whose Marie Antoinette has the good sense to bail out before the inhabitants of the Bastille got loose.

          Re ” “These threats include those posed by individuals and small groups engaged in violence, ” (Yahoo story)

          I guess advancing threateningly on an innocent citizen brandishing an untested, potentially deadly needle is NOT considered a threat, plus violent threat . . .

          Hmmmm, talk about who gets to do the framing . . .

          These online discussions are about self-defense.

          However, it is probably ill-advised to engage in them online.

        • Walter B November 17, 2021 at 4:10 pm #

          I don’t see why we have to threaten anybody when all we have to do is ignore them and NOT do what they tell us to do. Make them get violent and assume the moral high ground. Silence them, it works well in any situation.

        The interesting thing about Gates(well one thing) is that while he supposedly has all of this concern for how overpopulated the world is, how much of our natural resources we are consuming, the need for the masses to cut back etc etc, the guy has 3 kids and just spent a cool 2 million $ on his daughters wedding. To which all manner of rich entitled folks flew to. It would take me quite some time to even earn 2 million bucks, let alone spend it on a wedding! So do what he says but pay no attention to how he actually lives. Kinda like Al Gore and his TN mansion preaching to the masses about climate change.

      But regardless, the fact is that the WuFlu probably HAS burned its way through the American public already..We know many people who had mild cases and never saw a doctor, or if they did didn’t get any real treatment, just stayed home…The new cases are probably the “variants” which target the vaccinated, as predicted before the vaccine was even released..So the Globalist agenda is to kill the children and abort or damage the fetuses–population reduction, as WEC advocated.

    • Bilejones November 15, 2021 at 7:54 pm #

      It is remarkable to me that so little is being made of the rollout of a government program to murder 5 year old kids.

      • Socrates-Detroit November 16, 2021 at 12:38 pm #

        Many people who distrust the government apparently trust them on this. Joseph Goebbels would marvel at what is happening, and approve.

        It’s like a cult or religion.

        And in the face of overwhelming evidence that the vaxxed are not protected, and that some are getting very sick, the unvaxxed are being blamed!

        And lawmakers want to mandate shots for kids! Mandate!

        ITS MEDICINE.

    • neurodoc November 19, 2021 at 9:45 am #

      Just this week, or the first four days of the week, our clinic has had five patients with ‘vaxxed’ (in the past two months) family members, all healthy and under 60, die of myocarditis and its complications or of strokes. Another patient had a family member develop severe shingles the day after the 2nd clot shot, and another has a ‘vaxxed’ family member, again previously healthy and under 60, in the hospital for the second month for COVID pneumonia and is now approaching the vent. IN ONE SHORT WEEK!!!!

      And I’m hearing the same kind of thing from the few doctors with balls to talk about it. Others simply chant, ‘safe and effective,’ as they will continue to do as they are eventually marched into the Nuremburg court for trial.

      IT is starting folks. JHK is exactly correct about the above noted alternative treatments. I advise that you get your hands on them ASAP, before the International Pharmacopoeia Group at the UN/WHO (funded by gates, pfizer et al) gets them all banned or put on prescription only. They have been trying for years to put all vitamins and other supplements on prescription only (for your safety, of course), and have stepped up their activity in the past 3 months.

        • Rulo Deschamps November 15, 2021 at 1:00 pm #

          John AZ,

          Right. Surely the amount of TV and other screens consumed by native born Americans have nothing to do with it. Or the fact that piles of books can’t be sold at 25¢ apiece at Goodwills all over the land and end up in dumpsters. Or that smartphones have had the exact opposite effect, making people dumb. Or the school system and education in general. Or any number of other pesky facts dismissed by your grand vision of “who’s really to blame for how stupid we have become”.

          Nope. After long hours of thought, you’ve decided the spics are to blame.

          Bingo. That must be it. Surely we can’t aspire to the heights of intellect you have achieved just for being born here. A superior intellect that has figured out all will be fine as soon as Republicans take over again and restore the Athens of philosophers that was the US under, say, Dubya’s regime. A sage visionary whose high IQ prompted him to take an experimental shot because the TV screen told him to do so. Right.

          I now see that the Cervantes and Garcia Marquezes, the scientists and composers, the Nobel laureates and explorers, artists and philosophers our Hispanic culture produced in such abundance were all an aberration, a mistake, an impossibility.

          Brilliant! Thank you for the insight!

            “One thing the White House’s official press release did not mention is that almost all of the $2 trillion doled out under BBB is expressly designated for Black, Latino, Native American, Asian American, Pacific Islander and non-English speaking individuals.

            There is almost no immigrant who brings, attracts or generates wealth that would outweigh what they take up in resources.
            And talk of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ immigrants just opens the door to ignoring this entirely and ultimately a legitimisation of the idea of immigrants saving or helping natives. They don’t. Nobody leaves their home to make life better for somebody else (Except altruistic Westerners) they come to get some of the pie, they don’t think to themselves “I’ll make more money for these people than I’ll make for myself!”

            America was a handful of original settlers, the rest are immigrants, and we attracted the best from all over the world to make it what it was, the greatest country in the history of the world.

            “White Americans will get nothing and like it.”

            Malthus, this is just an aspect of BBB — remember that gentle soul, Klaus Schwab,” and his words of kindness: “By 2030 you will have NOTHING, and you will like it. Jawohl, Mein Fuhrer.” (Emphasis added to show he’s a fucking fascist.) Current money doesn’t matter because it’s going to be replaced of necessity. The POC who lose their shirts as a result will see this as yet more racism, and they won’t be wrong. More riots, only this time it’ll be a massacre as the rioters are mowed down by the hirelings of Gates, Steyer, Soros, Buffett, et al — sort of like how their forebears got rid of the Sturmabteilung. Regardless, traditional America is dead.

            A couple years ago, my mind had the weird thought that the Antichrist might be a maladjusted kid who got into tech, made a fortune, and obtained more influence than he had any right to have. Maybe it’s Citizen Gates.

You’re such a spiritual man, how can you not recognize that, while you could be right (sorta, kinda) that whites kept the lights (actual, real electric lights) on at times, those other groups were responsible for lights maybe more important, of spirituality, of art, of joy and sorrow, of a different way to understand Nature?

            An interesting idea Uncle Bob, Herr Gates is an interesting character and certainly possesses many of the traits that one would expect to see in the Antichrist. However he lacks the mind bending charisma that the Antichrist is foretold to have, so I think he is more likely one of AC’s minions but certainly in league with the Dark Side.

          I can’t agree that it is about lower intelligence JAZ, but it is certainly about lower needs and lower cost for the government to maintain. Educated white people need high paying jobs in order to pay the bills which ties up cash that politicians and Bill Gates want in their own bank accounts. It’s all about the bottom line and lowering the cost of doing business so that those who have more can eventually have it all.

          AZ: The Paul Kline research group, after he passed, in UK did a study several years ago looking at the RAW scores on the Wechsler Intelligence scales (WAIS) over the past two decades. Raw scores can change over time but standard scores are set at mean 100 and SD 15, so you can’t see over-time change in the latter. RAW scores have dropped 20 IQ equivalent points in the US and UK over the past two decades (the average standard score IQ is still 100 and SD is still 15). This means that the real average IQ is more like 80 and not 100, but with standard score conversion it always looks like 100. Explains a lot, huh?
          Just FYI.

            I got a phone call from one of my professors in Linguistics at the University of Texas in Austin, in 1964.

            David DC: “You did apply for that NDEA Title IV Fellowship in Linguistics, didn’t you?”

            me [blankly]; “I didn’t even know about it.”

            David DC: “The deadline was yesterday. It’s for three years, worth $6600. You can get your Ph.D.”

            me [abashed]; “Oh. Yes, the deadline.”

            After the first year or so I went AWOL from the program. At the time I put that down to wanting to raise hell, race motorcycles and chase college boys, but much later on I realized that something was awry with academia, deeply wrong with it and the way it did not fit into a reasonable, practical, meaningful, useful social context.

            That’s what impelled me to get the hell out (while taking Uncle’s money, obviously. Thank you Mister and Missus American taxpayer.)

            Every Ph.D. I’ve ever had the dubious pleasure of meeting has had a peculiar kind of, well, stench about him. The priesthood twists you a certain way. Your choice of terminology, your facial expression, the tics and pauses of intellectual exchange …

    Why on earth would any American with a functioning brain believe what he /she /they is being told by the public health officialdom, the politicians, or the news media?

    For the same reason that gambling addicts crash and burn so hard. No matter how desperate the bet, they simply cannot cut their losses and walk away. They’re forever holding on to the hope that the long shot will work out and they can appear the unlikely celebrity (or in the case of Covid, the righteous hero who gets to say “See, we told you so.”)

          I just started reading a book about “unfocus” and one of the concepts is “inattentional blindness”. In inattentional blindness, the subject is so focused on a particular task, problem, etc… that an obvious, though unexpected, thing may pop up and the person laser focused misses it completely.

          I think this is a truly common issue among the short-term memory emotive crowd that makes up the left. They are so focused on the topic of the day “orange man bad” “15 days to slow the spread” “wear your mask” “get vaccinated”, etc… that they are completely mentally blind to the obvious things going on around them that don’t fit their expected narrative.

          I think the true key to seeing/thinking clearly isn’t necessarily being more attentive (though that helps), but it’s being more willing to entertain the unexpected, then that way when it comes you can see it for what it is.

  5. Paul November 15, 2021 at 9:53 am #

    I think that most everything anyone does to avoid infection is probably a good idea, especially non-pharmalogical interventions like eliminating or avoiding alcohol, taking daily exercise for at least 30 minutes, minimum, eating a diet consisting of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, peas and seeds.
    It’s also a good idea to reduce body weight to a Body Mass Index of 23 or less, and to do a few things to reduce stress, improve balance and flexibility, strength and endurance.

    I’ve taken the Pf-pf-pf-Pfizer; I was none the W-w-w-wiser.

    I hope it goes well for each and all of you, as best as can be expected, under the current circumstances, despite all the lies exaggerations, half-truths, unsubstantiated claims, innuendos, and bullshit, most of which can be eliminated just by switching off the screens.

        It seems that a disproportionate number of bad reactions came from certain lots of the vaccine.

        It also appears that more problems show up with the second shot.

        It is my guess that if someone has avoided problems so far, as long as they avoid the shots from now on, they have a good chance of being okay.

        No one really knows.

        • Paul November 16, 2021 at 9:37 am #

          I’ve had two shots of the Pfizer and have remained healthy throughout the pandemic. I have also worked on call in a site where I have come to be relied upon to fill vacancies that are coming to be commonplace as more and more casual employees leave the system for reasons known best to them. There was an ‘outbreak’ in one of the places where I am most usually called to — and the supply of casual employees disappeared overnight.

          I will not divulge the sector I work in nor the pay I receive here. If I did you would not believe me.

          On the balance of probabilities I took both the first and second Pfizer shots as part of a prophylactic regime which has included frequent hand washing, mask-wearing and taking a handful of supplemental vitamins every day.

          I also make a point to not working every day, for two reasons mainly: to minimize any inoculum I might be exposed to, and 2) to exercise outdoors, eat right and try to take care of myself.

        About your (our) ‘unhealthy addiction to reading these comments’. I share your addiction. I read a bunch of them a couple of times per week with a combination of horror and fascination.

        I think the CF Nation blog serves JHK’s well. It provides a sense of community to a subset of its readers. As such, it’s like the village post-office in 1965. Old bastards would go there every day ostensibly to check the mail, but they’d linger outside on days when the weather was decent. They’d probably be able to say any goddamned thing that popped into their brains, no matter how inane. They could do this knowing that if they crossed a line, they’d be in for an earful from their peers.

        It’s clear to me know that the OFB’s (Old Fat Bastards) are still at it, except now they’re saying any goddamned thing to a reading audience of thousands. And for as many of those thousands who will reply with a “your’re full of shit as usual, Oscar” type of correction, there are just as many who cold, but who remain silent, and just as many more who might actually agree.

Each morning I make my blog and news rounds thinking each time that something big will have happened. Not that I wish for chaos but really, something has to give.

        Most of the blogs I follow seem to fall into two distinct categories: the end is here or it will all be okay. I frankly don’t see how it will ever be “okay” again. The cat is out of the bag and the horse is out of the barn. Thank God I have some critical thinking skills to wade through all of the b.s. that floats around.

            Melbourne has a long and colorful history of holding big “demos” – it led the nation in the Vietnam War Moratorium protests, for example.

            So there were a fair few there – but around 25,000 rather than 600,000. What is a concern is that anti-vaxxers, far-right nationalists, and feral libertarians, have jumped all over the anti-lockdown movement.

            The merchant marine red ensign (rather than the normal blue ensign – the Australian Flag) is a dead giveaway … it has been co-opted by the “sovereign nationalists” and similar – a bit like the Con\federate Flag in the US being used by white nationalists.

            Anyway – the Andrews Government has listened, and some of the more onerous elements of the emergency powers bill have been dropped. While what he is trying to do makes sense in a bureaucratic and practical sense, like many center-left governments, the optics tend to be dismissed too readily.

            I still expect Andrews Government to win the next election – 6.6 million Victorians didn’t join the protest.

            You seem to have time on your hands. JC Penny appears to be struggling to get back to me with an explanation for the significant rise in all-cause mortality in highly vaxxed nations – especially the ‘mysterious’ (according to the press) rise in heart attacks and other vascular events – and the quasi-disappearance of covid in places where ivermectin has been routinely, if belatedly, administered.

            Perhaps you could help him out? Wisdom from any source is always welcomed on here.

            It’s rather looking as if, with the use of ivermectin, the whole kit and caboodle could have been wrapped up in a few months without troubling Mr Gates and his foundation at all.

            Got the link from GreenAlba and watched the protest. Absolutely incredible, and no police or military presence, as they apparently had the good sense to stay the hell out of the way. Crowd may not have firearms, but lots of pots and pans, flag poles, etc. Andrews might be well advised to get the hell out of town, as these folks are serious and have had enough. Wondered when the Aussies would finally say enough, and now they have. Hope this spreads around the globe. Probably why our MSM are not reporting on it, a continuation of their lying and propaganda.

            It aint over yet. The large crowd was nice to see, but Dictator Dan and co. have had the miltary doing some rather suspicious excercises over the past few weeks.

            Also, they have completed one of their concentration camps. See the video I posted from last week. Double 12 ft. fences, electrifed, etc. Looks exactly like the kind of place Gulag Gladys was talking about before she disappeared from the public eye.

            Well – it’s about 25,000 out of a population of 6.68 million.

            Without having asked every one of them, I would suggest that the vast majority of the people in Victoria believe that Premier Daniel Andrews and his team have mostly done a good job over the pandemic.

            The next election will be interesting – but can I humbly suggest that a noisy and peaceful demonstration in Melbourne does not reflect the overall electorate. I might be wrong of course.

            As I outlined previously, these semi-rural / semi-isolated quarantine camps (but still close to international airports) are exactly what should have been in place from March 2020. Big city hotel quarantine did not and does not work because of centralised aircon, and the ease of breaches.

            These quarantine stations are a good thing in my view, but they are late. Victoria’s total Covid-19 cases and deaths – while still very low – could have been even far lower if these facilities had been in place a long time ago.

            Depends on the degree to which you believe in democracy and freedom, I guess. A few people demonstrate – that’s okay – but it doesn’t mean they have “The Truth”.

            The Victorian election might be a close-run thing – it can’t be predicted with accuracy – but people who can choose their leaders / representatives through fair and free elections are not slaves by any stretch.

            I should be kinder. We’ve all been where you are now – totally brainwashed and hypnotized by what those in power say is true.

            A majority of mental zombies voting to validate their slavery seems like a pretty fair system to you.

            Well, consider this. The common law says that consent must be “informed” to be valid, such as ‘consent of the governed’ by which a regime derives legitimacy.

            But if the corporate owned mainstream media all parrot the same falsehoods fed to them by the ruling Elite and dissenting voices are silenced by censorship and intimidation (like job loss) – are we free? Is consent informed?

            The kicker is you think everyone who wasn’t demonstrating agrees with you and embraces lockdowns, oppression, and tyranny. My God, I hope you’re not a typical example of Australian manhood. If so you can rename your island “Slavelandia” and bend over right now.

          • GreenAlba November 16, 2021 at 7:05 pm #

            Nice one, hm.

            I recently listened to Anna de Bruisseret (English lawyer, involved in issuing 170-page affadavits to English headteachers that also function as cease-and-desist notices in the matter of ‘vaccinating’ children on school premises), after a rally in London.

            She made the point that psychologists, psychiatrists and military veterans have testified that the British public (and by extension the public in other countries) has been subjected to military-grade psychological warfare and terror campaigns by their own government, with the consequence that not one single ‘vaccination’ in the entire country can be considered to have been covered by informed consent, let alone those of minors.

            Every ‘vaccination’ is therefore legally a crime.

            So we have to remember that ianw is also a victim of said psychological warfare (and totally brainwashed, as you say).

            Unless, of course, he’s paid …

            I reckon I’m more typical of most people – there are many many Victorians who are heartily sick of the lockdowns and much else, and they might take it out on the Andrews Labor Government at the next election – who knows?

            And an awful lot of the Murdoch-owned media like kicking him to death – they are not in cahoots with Labor at all (to say the least). But there is no tyranny or oppression – there are public health measures that have kept our case rates and death rates among the lowest around.

            People will either accept that the public health measures were worth it, and reward Andrews at the next election – or not.

            But overall Australians are a fairly laid-back lot – and don’t live or die on a daily basis over politics … they mostly have the emotional intelligence to put up with the pandemic, the lockdowns, and all the other measures – which are temporary and are lifted the very day they safely can be.

            It’s not braindead or brainwashed behaviour – it’s a mature community dealing with what we have to. And 25,000 noisy demonstrators have every right to do what they do, but it is a stretch to say that they represent the broad sweep, and the rest of the population who aren’t that passionate are zombies.

            And as I said, there are some pretty shady characters who get involved in these demos … I won’t call them “un-Australian” but they are a fringe minority indeed.

            Mary, here’s a ‘factcheck’ hatchet job by our friends Reuters on Anna de B, for your delectation.

            https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-vaccines-legal-idUSL1N2OW1CQ

            I love the first sentence:

            “A video has gone viral showing a woman telling British police officers that COVID-19 vaccines are illegal. However, the UK government approved the vaccines using the highest form of law.”

            So that’s us told.

            Terrifying comment.
            I guess it’s a good idea to keep one of these creeps around as a reminder of the danger of brainwashing—and, simultaneously, paradoxically enough—brain infection with mental virus. Maybe it’s comparable to wiping and then rewriting a hard drive.

          I don’t see how it will ever be ok again. The medical harm done to so many, both those denied early treatment and those harmed by the vax. All of those losing their jobs over vax mandates. All the small businesses destroyed. The reality that we cannot trust anything our government or MSM has to say. The hate and scorn heaped on the unvaxed. The total willingness of government, businesses and ordinary people to “other” those for their health choices. I can’t forgive nor forget no matter what.

          Farmgal – I agree. Will things Ever be “ok” again? Questionable, at best. Aside from Covid, America is confronted by too many ‘storms, from all points of the compass. Our whole national cultural spiritual house seems to be in disarray. I dislike being pessimistic, but frankly our time in the Sun may be passing … at least for now.

          I have been thinking and quoting from The Fourth Turning since it came out in the late 90’s. Prescient, to say the least. By all accounts we are in the crisis period of a modern Fourth Turning … bad JuJu.

          On the positive side, it we can hang-on until about 2030 (maybe a bit earlier), we could witness the start of a new beginning.

One another note: the NBA and NBA players association NBPA have approved getting more ‘boosters’….Long sort of forgotten in the vacuum of Aaron Rogers is one Kyrie Irving.

    “the spike protein, has a proclivity for the sexual organs”

    The techno-industrial-complex has supplanted the elite’s need for human labor. The humane thing to do is kill us off, so we won’t suffer the consequences of this reality.

    Although, running us down the shoot to the knockers would be the most expedient way to deal with it, they’ve taken a more subtle, perhaps humane, way of exterminating us.

    They’re working both sides of the equation. Birth rate and death rate, and they’re adjusting that flow like they would their own bath water.

    You weren’t supposed to know. Many of us do know. We are not stupid, we read, and we talk to each other. Running us down to the knockers may be in our future, but for now they’re going to try other pressure techniques.

    My post this week is influenced by Ted Kaczynski’s manifesto. He seems prophetic in his treatise. Funny thing though, as it relates to the ‘sides’ in this. His battle cry is to tear down the TIC, to destroy the technology in the name of nature. Not tree hugging nature, nature as in human nature. A Terminator type scenario, people vs. machines, or as he puts it, our dependency on the machine. He believed Technology cannot be reformed, it must be destroyed.

    So here we are the VAXED (technology) vs. the UNVAXXED (nature).

          Check out Lisa Randall’s book, Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs.

          https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Matter_and_the_Dinosaurs

          Randall hypothesizes a plane of dark matter exists roughly on the plane of the Milky Way galaxy.[1] As the Sun oscillates in its orbit around the center of the galaxy, it passes through the dark matter. The resulting gravitational disturbances destabilize bodies in the Oort cloud, resulting in increased Earth impacts, such as the one that caused the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event resulting in the extinction of dinosaurs.

          As I recall, she says it’s a 26,000 year cycle. Fascinating. And a well-received tome to boot.

            Suspiciousobservers.org founder Ben Davidson features numerous researchers that see something similar they call the galactic sheet. Not dark matter but a sheet of dust and other particles that the solar system passes through every 12,000 years that creates numerous reactions in the sun and its planets. The increase in volcanic activity recently is one of those reactions. The ultimate reaction wlll be when the sun micronovas. This process recurs every 12,000 years or so.

        • Alzaebo November 15, 2021 at 3:42 pm #

          By the title of the link alone, dang that looks interesting. I see all our current concepts of religion as a response to the Taurid asteroid swarm.

          Every 8-12,000-ish years, we our solar system orbits into its tail, rocks rain down like angels with swords of fire, and we wonder “why? Why did the gods try to kill us?”

          From there, I’ve become an enxtremely religious atheist. That is, I acknowledge a dual ecology of material biology that generates an immaterial “spiritual” layer, ultimately leading to a tertiary layer. Race is absolutely essential in this, so racism is my religion.

          The question of “why” becomes “what’s the function”, as a node in a larger cosmic ecology.
          For instance, “what is Heaven” becomes “where is it” becomes “why-what’s it for?”

          I could get no satisfying answers from the limited social-political models on hand, that is, the traditional “religions”. They can’t answer my questions, and I can’t satisfy theirs- another piece of the puzzle. I don’t think any of it is “made up”, only that it’s difficullt to describe properly. All real, in other words, with a little translation.

          The first slide of her presentation, “how do you think about fossil fuels – a) we’re using too much and causing GW – b) there’s not enough and nothing to replace them, and that will cause huge pain”, and how the whole media and propaganda machine focus on a and won’t say anything about b was spot on. Also the bit about people only listen to what they want to listen, and block out unpleasant facts.

        At the same time Dr. Atlas was saving Florida, Fauci and Birx were bashing DeSantis for going against the voodoo they didn’t follow themselves.

        Having members of the same team attacking another member is horrible management.

    Perhaps the easiest question to answer is whether public policy is oriented towards maximizing population growth and resource consumption.

    Ask yourself, is it the interest to create health protocols that will allow population to grow beyond 10b, maybe even 15b (near doubling current levels)?

    If you believe that to be the case, then you might assume government policy is geared towards benefitting the commonweal.

    However, if you think that makes no logical sense, then it could lead you to question the entire narrative, motivations and objectives.

    • Rulo Deschamps November 15, 2021 at 4:34 pm #

      Mitchell,

      Of course one questions the whole narrative. But questioning is not knowing. Public policy has been oriented towards maximizing population growth and resource consumption so far. So, in that old paradigm, yes, 15b would have been a goal.

      I don’t know whether that’s still the case. It could be. Why not 15b serfs, or slaves? Why not a whole new subspecies of Epsilons, a la “Brave New World” (authored by one of your transhumanist heroes) What if the energy of billions could be harvested, a la “Matrix”? What’s impossible about breeding us like livestock? It’s entirely possible. Don’t read me wrong – not 15b free humans, not a healthy Earth – 15b eating maggots or soylent green, hand-carrying buckets of human shit to fertilize vast wastelands of GMO soybeans, plugged into terminals at rest-time to harvest their dreams or terrors, why not? How do we know? How can we know?

      Is Gavin Newsom still MIA? Or is his wife still issuing shrill, angry tweets that he’s just hangin’ with the family?

      • malthuss November 15, 2021 at 10:18 am #

        Gavin was seen at a party. wearing a mask.

        Mrs. Newsom, Jennifer Siebel Newsom Tweet, mysteriously posted a rather sarcastic tweet about the Governor’s need to spend time with his wife and family. She deleted it an hour later. The First Lady’s tweet disappeared an hour later, only deepening the mystery. We have a screenshot of it below.

        “It’s funny how certain folks can’t handle truth,” Mrs. Newsom tweeted Sunday night. “When someone cancels something, maybe they’re just in the office working; maybe in their free time they’re at home with their family, at their kids’ sports matches, or dining out with their wife. Please stop hating and get a life.”

            Jarek, so if I read you correctly, being born a certain color is a sin. Which is, of course, absurd. But even if that was the case, then, according to the Fathers of the Church, hatred should be directed to the sin (the color), not the sinner (the person unfortunate enough to be born of that color).

            It’s a balancing act, your admittedly rich spiritual life, juggling Christianity and Buddhism, but ultimately being loyal only to Wotan and Odin, to idols studded with nails, one for each human sacrifice received. Maybe you should go full SS and forget the Bible nonsense – it makes no sense in your case – you cannot make a round circle, or a circular square. It’s decision time…

            Religious ideology and myth has always interested me.

            In the second century Christianity reached a fork in the road.
            1) Retain the Old Testament and its angry, jealous Yahweh as part of Christianity OR
            2) Declare that Jesus Christ was sent by a higher true God, not the cruel and deluded lower god Yahweh. Dump him and the Old Testament and all things Jewish.

            Of course, the church fathers opted for #1 and the Gnostic/Theosophist line of thinking was suppressed, finding some expression in the mysticism of hermits, et al.

          • Alzaebo November 17, 2021 at 2:05 pm #

            Replying to hmuller, they fought with knife and cudgel in the streets for 200 years, until the Council of Nicea was called.

            The Trinity is a balance-of-power arrangement.
            Pagan, Jewish, Roman Christian, the three dominant cultures of their era.

            “Pagan” Arianite kingdoms, an arc from Visigothic Spain to the Viking Rus of Kiev.
            The “Holy Ghost”

            Jewish merchant network, whose trade with the Viking kingdoms kept the Dark Age economy going (and eventually traded Islamic silver, prized by the Vikings, for slaves)
            Jewish “Father”

            Roman Christianity, which eventually split into the Eastern Roman Empire of Greco-Orthodox Byzant and the fractured Western Empire of Italo-Catholic Rome.
            Cosmopolitan “Son”

            Constantine chose Turkey, at the center, for his capitol, and called upon good Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Nestorian (non-Trinity) Syria, as a neutral arbiter- Syria and the Levant being home to the First Christians.

            *(“son of the holy ghost” originated as slang for “royal’s bastard”- child of the Allfather, of Zeus, of the holy ghost, etc- meaning, “I can’t openly say who I think the illegitimate’s dad is”. Open political affiliation could get one killed.

            The historical child Jesus most likely was the illegitimate heir to Roman Emperor Tiberius. Herod ll’s 15 y.o. niece, Mariamne Herodius (Mary) had an affair with Tiberius- his street name, ‘Pantera the Ossetian legionnaire’, was a cover; she was given to a 42 y.o. widower named Joseph and squired away to a secret birth in Bethlehem, with the child raised in foreign Alexandria in Egypt.

            That child was the most important baby in the world, under constant threat of assasination.

            As Tiberius’ heir, it was entirely lawful for the Roman Senate of 324 AD to declare him a diety.
            Invictus Sol and Jupiter Optimus had failed as unifying motifs, while Jesus’ street story was the most popular and inspiring story in their world.

            Constantine worked for 25 years to unify his fracturing civilization, at last he had found the key, a cceptable to all.

            Politics. The Book, from beginning to end, is politics. No gods, no magic, no heaven or hell.

            All religion, as we see it, begins as politics until they forget what they were talking about- then they try to use their only available framework of authority to try to explain the immaterial that they can sense, but not see.

          • hmuller November 17, 2021 at 7:02 pm #

            Alzaebo,
            You are welcome to your beliefs, but IMHO you’ve spun off into fantasy land. If you think Jesus was the son of the Emperor Tiberius, I’m the unclaimed love child of Albert Einstein’s passion for some female Bigfoot.

          OK, now here is where things could get interesting. Had she just had a booster? I have no idea, however if she had, she seems well-liked enough by her colleagues that perhaps one of them will start tugging on that string. This could be the crack in the narrative we’ve been waiting on.

      The fact that there is no reason a governor would know how to end a pandemic, especially one as dumb as she is, never crossed her mind, evidently. It also never crossed her mind that she does not own other people’s kids.

    For the last two years anyone who challenged the Fauci narrative was soundly and viciously denounced, media refused to present any evidence that didn’t go through The Ministry of Truth to be purged of questions or facts that didn’t fit in with the controls they wanted to put in place and keep in place for as long as it suited them. Encouraged by their success at suppressing conflicting news and slapping the doctors in line, they now want to see if they can go further and further down this path.

    Mission partially accomplished. The woke are now being required to turn over the kids for shots and further indoctrination and that final push will separate the true wokster-belivers from the ones who are slowly questioning whether or not the state has the right to demand fealty to their agenda over love of their own children.

      Not much!!

      Distancing, masks, hygiene, and permission to use mRNA technology for the “vaxx” is about it. Lower the curve to avoid overloading the health care system.

      Notice the latter sentence. No mention of killing the pandemic, of stopping the virus, of limiting the extent of the infection. Just suppressing the surges.

      Meaning to me? Eventually everyone is going to get this crud, just like the flu. They have no clue how to get rid of the virus, especially one that is capable of evolving past “vaxx” attempts and fast.

      Take your supplements, hope that the “vaxx”does slow down the intensity of the immune reaction, avoid contact with any potential source of the crud, and be ready to react quickly if you sense you have the virus.

      Just like the flu.

        This is the first time I’ve ever heard of that asymptotic people were tested for anything. That’s how Aaron Rodgers ended up in the middle of the controversy.

        Sweden has been one of the few countries that refused to be bullied into extreme measures and we never hear much about them, do we? They had deaths and stated publicly that they should have done a better job protecting the elderly but they protected their children which IMO, is far more important. No schools were closed, the kids wore no masks and weren’t terrorized by the background noise of the media predicting doom.

            Yours, daylight and maybe vitamin D.

            Daylight, UV sterilization?

            Dependence on indoors, HVAC systems etc.

            Wouldn’t it be the s*&Ts if virus being collected on filtration systems survived enough to be a spreader.

            The idea of HVAC might explain the two times a year occurrence of surges so far. Heat and A/C.

            If it’s all-cause mortality, and it’s happening uniquely since the implementation of jabbing programmes, then a brain such as yours must have something to offer.

            Let’s just help that sink into your grey cells: all-cause mortality is rising for the first time, compared to the previous 5-year averages, following the vaxx programmes.

            Covid-19 opened the door to euthanasia in a number of countries, including the UK and the USA.

            It is pretty easy to bump off a senior. Many people sign a “do not resuscitate” order thinking it means only in case of incurable state such as deep coma, etc.

            But when the elderly person get sick they don’t call the doctor or 911 (if in a nursing home). They give them a hit of morphine to “stabilize” them and put them to sleep (or that other drug described by the English bloke that is used to put people to sleep–begins with m). Then they call the RN who shoves a morphine horse pill up the poor senior’s a—. Mission accomplished.

            WTF?

            Greenie: When adjusted for population growth, All-Cause-Mortality is up across all metrics in all areas, but not up as much as you observe. Further, the depletion of ‘tinder’ in any one locale during any season necessarily reduces the annual impact of the next.

            Take look at the CDC’s ILI charts at the state-level to see how it works.

            The tinder was *allegedly’ removed by covid in 2020, or so they told us to frighten us into getting jabbed.

            If the tinder was removed in 2020 it’s not there to be removed in 2021, and yet mortality is rising.

            If, on the other hand, the tinder wasn’t removed in 2020, then the covid death rates quoted to frighten people into rolling up their sleeves were a lie.

            “Anywhere that fared well in 2020 is gunna get gobsmacked in 21 or 22. It’s nature not nurture.”

            Anywhere that got heavily vaxxed in 2020 is gunna get gobsmacked in 21 and 22. It’s not nature, it’s (lack of) nurture.

    Another excellent article, James. Thank you, and good morning.

    What we need to know now is who are the evil ghouls orchestrating the demise of humanity as we know it?

    Thanks to David Martin, we now know who they are. Here is the list:

    The Covid Orchestra, Board of Trustees “The Names of the People Killing Humanity”

    • pranah November 15, 2021 at 4:34 pm #

      Thanks for the list! Surprised to see Yo Yo Ma on it–wtf?

      I have been asking for names for a long time, beyond Rothschild and Rockefeller and the royals and Zuckerberg and Gates. We need to know who the orchestrators are, and where they live.

      • MaryMaryFullOfPride November 15, 2021 at 8:40 pm #

        Well there they are. Then of course, there are thousands of WEF placed puppets underneath them.

  17. JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 10:12 am #

    43000/160000000 vaxxed equals .02%, that is assuming 16000000 vaxxed. That is both dead and disabled.

    Even if the VAERs is one tenth is estimated, that is still .2%.

    Compare that to the age group mortality percentages, it is no wonder the risk analysis is favoring taking the vaxx. Take a group of people in a neighborhood that all get the shot, very few are going to be affected so there is very few local alarm bells going off that there is a problem. Future problems are not even paid attention to. Older folks face higher %s with the disease so they will always favor being vaxxed.

    Someone suggested letting the crud just rip through and take its toll. I hope he is willing to be disabled or die if he is one of the percentage sensitive to the crud itself. It is so easy to make pronouncements when your own butt is not on the firing line. We have no idea about what an unencumbered virus would have done. I do remember that a panic existed toward the end of 2020 that made getting any form of a vaccine seem to be necessary.

    I wonder why a vaccine that is a killed piece of the virus, like the flu shot, was not brought out as an option during the last year? Why only mRNA?

    This years surge is not near as high as last years. Hmmm. Wonder why?

    We know that the virus seems to be getting around the immune response to the s protein. We do not know why. Why the appearance of low intensity Covid getting past prior Covid or the vaccines? A kid has a runny nose and goes to school anyway. A wedding or a reunion has people there with runny noses and light headaches, no biggie, I am not going to miss the event.

    Covid is good at hiding itself and spreading, especially indoors and in close groups. Think dancing with a “asymptomatic” partner that never even knows they have the crud.

    I made a comment about letting it rip, but after everything is said or done, that is probably what is going to happen anyway, vaxxes or not.

    • Beryl of Oyl November 15, 2021 at 10:19 am #

      Making effective early treatment available to all, is not “letting it rip”.

      That’s the propaganda talkig point used to defame the anti-lockdown voodoo people.

      Governor DeSantis started to give Regeneron to anyone who needs it.

      The Biden administration tried to stop him.

      The PREP Act was designed to make it hospital care (and only that which the government approves) or nothing.

      Turning people away until they were drowning in lung fluids was the worst thing to do.

    • Mountain gal November 15, 2021 at 10:22 am #

      @ John AZ

      The Covid numbers here in VT are even higher than last winter pre-vax. The same is true for some heavily vaxed countries.

      We needed to do our best to protect the most vulnerable, emphasize early treatment protocols and then let it rip.

      • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 10:51 am #

        You are right here, pockets of higher intensity do exist in colder areas. Europe is in trouble again with the crud this year.

        The hidden agenda here is that let er rip is what is going to happen anyway. Even with the vaxx.

        I have been pounding since the beginning that curing, killing the virus is the only path to success.

        • Mountain gal November 15, 2021 at 11:07 am #

          Not just colder areas. Israel has just come off of their last Covid surge-and it was really hot there. It’s not weather, it’s percentage of vaxed.

          • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 11:51 am #

            That I will not argue with you, the effect of surviving viruses becoming variants is logical, but no data of course hides the issue.

        • GreenAlba November 15, 2021 at 12:57 pm #

          John, for the love of God, listen to the evidence.

          The UK ( part of Europe) is not in trouble from the virus, but from vaxx deaths that will be called variant DeltaDoublePlusBad and used as an excuse to vaxx primary-age kids, toddlers and babies, and booster everyone else.

        • Hereward the Woke November 15, 2021 at 3:32 pm #

          I’m fascinated by your use of the word “crud” for the virus. You must know that the numbers of deaths are vastly exaggerated and that the number of “cases” are based on a useless PCR test. Do you call seasonal flu the crud too? Is it to make yourself feel better about taking the jab? I don’t ask this to be snarky, but your thought processes puzzle me. At some point you are going to have to face the truth about this “vaccine”, John.

          • Islander November 15, 2021 at 6:57 pm #

            Hereward: Thanks for finally calling this weird “crud” usage out.

            When we were young and foolish we referred to “the creeping crud,” by which we meant anything truly disgusting such as . . . well, you can probably figure that out without a spelling lesson.Equally disgusting was anyone who had “the creeping crud.”

            I could say more, but I have found find JAZ’s obsessive use of this term very weird since the first time I saw it.

      Poor John. So bought into the hype. If it wasn’t for the idiot media and it’s idiot followers running around all masked up, I never would have even guessed there’s been an alleged “pandemic” all this time.

        JohnAz thinks that 43,000 Americans dead and disabled, (or more likely 430,000) from the vax is a trivial number?! Does he know in the past when 30 or 40 people died from a new vaccine it was pulled off the market?

        • NickelthroweR November 15, 2021 at 11:08 am #

          The people that willingly got on the train to Treblinka have no choice to believe that the train is taking them to Rainbow & Unicorn Land – a place that is free of Covid and Conservatives.

          That train is now traveling non-stop to its destination – their extermination and their DNA forever removed from this great struggle called LIFE.

            How many fingers will you be waving, John? LOL

            Personally, I’m not saying everyone who got the vax will drop dead. Or even that a huge percentage will. But too many people already have been so affected. How can you think 43,000 Americans (at a minimum) killed and disabled so far is a trivial number, John?

        • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 11:11 am #

          Sort of an indication of what a panic the population was whipped into last fall, huh.

          Could it have had something to do with an oncoming election? From both sides?

        Your reaction to stuff that is just a restatement of a data base is typical. Take your threats and shove them.

        Anyone who actually believes that no one has gotten sick or died from this virus is not worth listening to anyway.

        And, you will never intimidate me from expressing my opinion on any subject, only JHK can do that. If he feels that counter opinions are not able to express themselves on this blog, I will not want to be here anyway.

        There IS something called Covid 19. However, the cases and deaths have been vastly exaggerated, as Italy has recently proven by downgrading its deaths by 96%. John has many good points but he seems to be engaging in some kind of convoluted psychological minimalisation of the jab’s nastiness.

        • Jarek November 15, 2021 at 7:24 pm #

          • GreenAlba November 16, 2021 at 9:24 am #

            Peter McCullough developed very successful protocols to treat it early, so it seems to exist. He didn’t just say treat it like flu.

            What its relationship is to the alleged Sars-CoV-2 virus is another matter, as is the exact nature of the alleged virus.

            I don’t know either way.

          • GreenAlba November 16, 2021 at 9:25 am #

          Also, zero proof any ‘variants’ exist.

      • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 11:06 am #

        So why is the common cold transmissible before the symptoms start to show up on day five?

        The virus establishes itself and the immune system reacts about five days later. During this time, you can pass it on. As the symptoms of a virus is the immune response to it, the presymptomatic phase of a virus infection is transmissible.

        I do not have enough data to argue whether the crud can be so Un reactive with the immune system that it can transmit while giving no symptoms. Truly asymptomatic transmission is a conjecture at this point, IMO.

        • Hereward the Woke November 15, 2021 at 3:36 pm #

          Asymptomatics may pass it on, but there is simply no evidence at this point that they do. What is clear is that virally-loaded vaxxed people CAN pass it on.

      • Jarek November 15, 2021 at 11:39 am #

        John you may be right, but we just can’t live that way. The search for perfection (as in perfect safety) is an illusion and leads to disaster.

        Public policy must focus on symptoms. What you want to do is your own decision.

    The Market Ticker guy fills in around some of the “new” information being released:

    What They Didn’t Tell You

    “So how is that we had a “surge” this summer and continue to see infections this fall?

    It can’t happen if there are no susceptible people.

    But it is.

    So there are susceptible people.

    How did they become susceptible when they weren’t before in any material size?

    We jabbed them.”

    • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 11:20 am #

      I have no argument with your post.

      I believe that the susceptibility you mention is a huge surprise to the pro vaxx folks.

      The number of vaxxed folks that have gotten the crud has just about destroyed the publics confidence in the vaxx. That is why the booster response is not what was hoped for. Or the kids.

      The Biden mandate is pure power politics that pays no attention to any scientific statistical evaluation.

      From the beginning, MHO has been to find a way to treat the onset of the disease and use vaxx only for high risk folks. Eventually, that is what is going to happen.

      • hmuller November 15, 2021 at 6:46 pm #

        That’s a sensible approach I can respect. Although I would add hanging Fauci et al. from a sour apple tree for funding the development of genetically enhanced viri which are then released on the world. But I’m just unforgiving when it comes to genocidal murderers.

  19. Maple November 15, 2021 at 10:14 am #

    Our side effects were horrendous. Wife turned up with unexplained swelling in limbs a week after the second vax. Doctors checked it out and said “no worry”. Right…..

It is mind-boggling the lengths the IRS goes to, using tax payer dollars, to squeeze every bit of tax dollar out of U.S. citizens. The rules are truly onerous.

    Here’s something called a Weekend Essay at a site called UnHerd.

    Designated Criminal

    Reason has been superseded by the need to obey

    BY DAVID MAMET

    One cannot credit the Politicians of the Left with even the delusion that they are Doing Good. And, if they do, then what? They did not take an oath to do good, but to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

    Must they come to bend and break the rules in favour of 1) their good ideas, 2) the necessity of staying in office, 3) theft? Of course. That’s why we have elections. To roll the dice. The co-dependant, terrified society comes to think that, having achieved the perfection of leadership, it’s a grand idea to call it quits, abolish the electoral college, mail ballots to everyone on earth, require no voter identification, import new voters, and so on.

    Just as the inspired politicians see that perpetual hegemony might be had by mere suspension of their Oath; their dupes, the electorate, learn to suspend their reason, and substitute hatred of the indicted for their new-found fear of power — a fear so powerful it must be relegated to the unconscious.

The only way they get liability protection is if they’re on the child’s vaccination schedule. And then, once the CDC votes them onto the child vaccination schedule, then they get liability protection, even for adults.”

  25. Beryl of Oyl November 15, 2021 at 11:07 am #

    Some of the stuff Bobby Jr, covers in his new book:

    Fauci has had a hand in creating the vaccine gold rush. In 2000, he met with Bill Gates, who asked to partner with the NIH in an agreement to vaccinate the world with a battery of new vaccines. In 2009, this agreement was rebranded as “The Decade of Vaccines,” the objective of which was to implement mandatory vaccinations for every adult and child on the planet by the year 2020

    The similarities between the AZT scandal and what’s happening today with the COVID jab and remdesivir are striking. Again, Fauci has suppressed all treatments using inexpensive and nontoxic drugs. U.S. taxpayers have paid for research, while drug companies have raked in the profits, all while having zero liability for injuries and deaths

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/RKKzAkiNU9y1/

    I would like to know, and have been trying to find out, exactly how and why Dr. Fauci was chosen to head the coronavirus task force, and more important, why he was allowed to stay on that task force.

    It is false that President Trump could not fire him.

    It’s starting to look more and more like the president was set up.

    • Jarek November 15, 2021 at 11:46 am #

      Fauci is much higher on the Global Pyramid than Trump is or will ever be. He could have fired him, but it might have been very dangerous to do so. Trump knew this and didn’t.

      • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 12:19 pm #

    Back in the mid 70s, the Stanford Research Institute did a paper for Kissinger/Chaney on the “Limits To Growth”. I found it 18 years ago when I was researching a book I was doing on climate change. Haven’t found it since. Anyway, the gist of the paper said that if we did not reduce the population of the world by 80% in 2025, we would be extinct by 2050. Pretty sure this scared the shit out of ol Kissinger and Cheney, and they took the paper and ran with it. Right after that Aids came on the scene. The summer of love was truly over. Every year since, a line item on the budget for Kellogg, Brown and Root, hundreds of millions for detention facilities. Hmm. Then weaponized Ebola. 15 years ago, I believe there was something like a little over a hundred wars going on in the world. Haliburton had their hand in a lot of them, both sides. There’s a new article out “it all makes sense if you realize they’re just trying to kill you.” I haven’t read it because I realized that years ago. I might not get fortunes for my connect the dots artwork like some Bidens I heard of, and I aint no rocket scientist, but I can still connect some dots……there are a lot of them, and they are not painting a pretty picture!

    • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 11:38 am #

      Without a predator control, nature allows all species under favorable environmental conditions to overpopulate. The results become disease, climate change (drought), over specialization all of which can lead to extinction.

      That is probably the content of “Limits to Growth”.

      So what can man use to control the over population, using his power of reason.

      Two things are sorta out of the question. One, creating a predator to kill off 20% of our population every years. Two, keep it in your pants, drop the birth rate below the death rate.

      The primary population control has always been:

      War, followed by disease or both.

      War, legalized murder.

      Then August 6, 1945 happened and War started becoming obsolete.

      So what is left?

          I presume he was aware of UFO incursions and may even have been privy to inside information about their intent and activity. But his meaning was that the same old same old MIC welfare bums would be pushing this.

        You do realize, JohnAZ that the birth rate is below the population replacement rate among the native populations of Japan, & nearly all the Caucasian nations of the world. Immigrants from browner, poorer nations flooding into North America and Europe are all that keep the population from falling in those areas.

      Many years ago, an economist I know told me Canada needed vast immigration to even hope to compete in the capital markets.

      Then a decade later he asked me what I thought of our immigration policy, and I spat back his original thesis.

      He disagreed, LARGE.

      I recall that back in the early to mid-70’s Nelson Rockefeller’s “boy” Henry Kissinger weighed in on the utility of war to limit population growth. If memory serves, Kissinger opined that war was not sufficiently extreme to effectively limit population growth. I remember thinking at the time that Kissinger’s opinion seemed specious; I thought to myself – surely we have plenty of capable, creative sociopaths who can drum up wars to the level needed to stunt and reverse population growth. Of course, war also is apt to destroy valuable infrastructure and limit access to valuable resources (via residual radiation). I would imagine a much better solution to the population growth conundrum would be to construct a multi-faceted campaign to get the populace to willingly – even happily – participate in behaviors, especially ones freighted with virtue signaling, which would ultimately lead to their own eradication. Of course, who knows if such speculation is ridiculous. But, then, there is plenty of evidence that the world has never suffered a paucity of sociopaths.

    The acrobatics taking place are impressive. On one hand, they’re trying to convince the unvaccinated that the jab works so they’ll get the jab. At the same time they’re tying to convince the vaccinated that it doesn’t work that well so they’ll get the booster.

      “They” are starting to admit that they don’t know how many boosters it will take.

      That’s a lie to cover the fact that they already suspect an endless progression of shots probably won’t do it.

    • Jarek November 15, 2021 at 11:48 am #

      With every shot, your immune system is damaged. The more you take, the more you will need to take.

      • JohnAZ November 15, 2021 at 12:09 pm #

        Yep, and each shot of a single antigen may “specialize” the immune system causing old bugs to suddenly appear.

        A good example. Allergists are now discovering that not exposing kids to an entire world exposure to antigens has probably caused a lot of the allergy problems. An uneducated immune system can cause allergies and probably autoimmune too.

        Again and again, the data is missing. Where is the data about the creation of memory B and T cells after vaccine or exposure to the disease itself? Antibodies are designed to be temporary, the immune system removes them ASAP. So if the virus folks are counting on only antibodies to control the virus, find out how long it takes to remove the antibodies from the last shot and that is how often boosters will be needed. Nice!

        They need to find out if memory cells are even created by s protein exposure. If not, the Vaxx will never work, period. So far, antibodies from vaxx 1&2 and now a six month booster are in place and wearing thin. What is next? I notice no delta vaccine, no future course for future variants, not even an idea of whether the vaccines create the memory situation that is needed.

        Someone better come up with an accepted antiviral that kills the bug in situ. The vaccine approach may become unworkable this winter.

          I totally disagree, crudgemudgeon. We don’t have anything close to Libertarianism in this world and haven’t in over a century (if ever).

          What we have are banking cartels and mega corporations running governments and centrally planning to reshape the world by brutal force and disinformation into a slave society of oppression and poverty.

          Administering a system of scarcity is how the few rule the many. Seeing a strong and prosperous middle class with the guts to fight back galls the Cabal immensely. They can’t allow that.

          Furthermore, under a free trade system based on gold, (not US Treasury debt instruments) the American consumer would have run out of money to buy imports long, long ago. A new and sustainable balance with China would then have been reached.

          The balance 200 years ago was: they send us assorted products; we send them opium, thus holding onto our precious metals. They probably wouldn’t go for that kind of trade deal this time, but I digress.

          Decades of distortions based on a dishonest, corrupt world financial system pave the way for one hellish Reckoning Day.

    Some more data and analysis on the death jabs from the Market Ticker guy.

    Now that I’ve been specifically warned away from his site, we can all be assured of it’s accuracy and integrity.

    CDC Ruins The Mandate Push

    The CDC used to keep a table around that showed their estimated prevalence of Covid-19. That stopped being updated for months — right through the middle of the “mandate screamfest” which started in the summer.

    Well, it’s back — and it ruins Biden’s mandate demands.

      @Beryl “…warned away from his site…”

      No. Warned to take all info into context and refrain from posting links that you have not personally reviewed for accuracy.

      However, to support your observation…

      Alabama was posting on Twatter the ICU (Vexxed/Un-vexxed) data from the state’s hospitals. Last week the ICUs were at 85% capacity with only 8% of the beds occupied by someone ‘with’ COVID. Think about that unreported context…. This last post included a statement that they would no longer be posting those stats.

      “If it doesn’t bleed it doesn’t lead.”

          @Beryl “What makes you think I haven’t reviewed the Market Ticker’s work for high standards?” Actually, it was your, ‘I was never good at science’ statement.

          Other than that, you’re good.

          Sheeple are on both sides of the fence, where it’s better on the other side.

          I also stand by your statement [ref TG] where I specifically noted the desire of THE STATE to only publish alarmist data. Hence my comment regarding Alabama.

          Your instinctive dismissal of my casual observations of obfuscation by the myriad charlatans on the web assigns your posts [as well as those you parrot] as both inaccurate and problematic.

    It gives me hope that his popularity is going up like the inflation rate. Full Hockey stick. Listen and you will become addicted to this 28yo young man.

    Just check out these songs.

    Wargasm
    See it coming everywhere I look
    It’s falling down like rain
    Kill a man over a sentence in a book
    And collect a reward for his pain
    Such a failing situation
    And I’m sick of looking at it anywhere I go
    Let ’em talk and send their hate and stick to war again
    Like it’s the only thing we know

    Watch it Fall
    I’ve been to California, man
    I’ve seen them city lights
    Been stranded in the desert
    Scorching days and freezing nights
    I’ll never understand
    Why people try to walk so tall
    How long until there’s nothing left at all?
    [Chorus]
    Don’t you love what you got used to?
    When we used to feel so free
    Won’t you wait a while in silence, love
    Watch it fall with me

    I survived Covid. One night in the hospital.

    Earlier another ER kicked me out, twice. Was told to go home and get better. Was not vaxxed, and was treated like second class. An “alternative” clinic and doctor took me in and spent two hours figuring things out. Ivermeticin, I think did the trick. 3 pills/day for 5 days.

    A couple things I will never believe. I can’t believe doctors don’t do something, before things go south. Also, the “force” must be so strong as all the doctors and hospitals seemed to be on the same page.

    Walgreens, Costco and all the other pharmacies do not stock Ivermeticin. Not one.

    My two cents: Don’t take the shot. If you get it, be ready. Don’t let it get worse. One of a hundred has problems. Don’t assume you will get better. I kind of think this will last until we all have it.

            I do not care about the fatality rate. People have complained about the incidence of flu for a long time, it costs productivity, it costs money in sick time and health care costs.

            Covid is a highly transmissible flu like virus that new cases more folks more often than the flu does.

            The flu runs its gamut in six months. Covid twice a year, that is a lot more cases. Maybe multiply the health care costs by two?

    I’ve made the error in recent weeks of arguing in a newspaper comments section with a retired nurse about all of this. He’s a textbook example of brainwashing. Even after giving him links to interviews with early treatment doctors, to their official testimony at the US Senate, and to peer-reviewed research that backs up their statements, this “nurse” denies all of it and accuses me of being part of a cult. This, after he got Covid anyway despite being double-jabbed, meaning he’ll probably first in line for a booster. I truly never thought educated people could go this insane, but there it is.

    It’s time to pull up the ladders. A good portion of the population are simply never going to see the situation clearly; they will double and triple down on their dance into the abyss. We we must do is avoid going down with them.

    • Mountain gal November 15, 2021 at 12:26 pm #

      @ Hank

      I’d put money on her having had the vax. So hard to get this info- if an unvaxed person dies from Covid, MSM can’t wait to crow about it but when people suddenly die from heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms etc, they just put it out to chance and not the vax. A whole bunch of young and relatively young people having these problems now though…..

    Jim, The mad rush to vaccinate children is probably to guarantee Pfizer-Biotech a continuous government contract. This is the Gold Rush of our time.

    Biontech’s main office in Germany is even located on “GOLDMINE STREET”. (An der Goldgrube 12, Mainz)

    From Jerm Warfare:

    “Want to send the politically correct, blindly compliant sheep into a frenzy?

    Then tell them the following.

    (Credit goes to David Martin.)

    There is no SARS-CoV-2.
    There is no COVID-19.
    There is no vaccine.
    There are no asymptomatic carriers.
    “Covid” is the first disease in history to have no clinical diagnosis.
    “Covid” is spread through the corporate media and government propaganda.
    The injections are a bioweapon.
    Use in any order.

    [Note: links embedded for each statement above – see link below to get to the entire post]

    Repeat as necessary.

    This past weekend I made the decision, from today, not to engage with Branch Covidians anymore.

    For months I’ve tried, but, as Mattias Desmet said on my podcast, indoctrinated people will never wake up from their slumber.

    They’re a lost cause and add no value to my journey.

    Former KGB agent of propaganda, Yuri Bezmenov, said in the 1980s:

    “Exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information; with authentic proof; with documents; with pictures; even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him a concentration camp, he will refuse to believe it until he receives a kick in his bottom. When a military boot crashes his balls, then he will understand. But not before that. That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.”

    Almost two years of sustained government and corporate media propaganda have successfully demoralised millions of people.”

      Utter garbage. JHK is a nice guy. He let you post BS. Now, go back to your basement! And, leave the rest of us to engage in adult conversation.

      “There is no SARS-CoV-2.” BS. Identified in every country as well as pets, deer, and effluent.

      There is no COVID-19. BS. The symptoms of COVID-19 have presented themselves a few million times in clinical settings.

      There is no vaccine. BS. There are mRNA injections that are purported to reduce symptoms. Given the long-over-due alteration of the definition of a vaccine [reduction vs. negation of a disease] there are vaccines that are available without any long-term contradictions available.

      There are no asymptomatic carriers. BS. It spreads as soon as it is replicated and transmitted in/from the sinus cavity. Whether the individual carrier is aware of the symptoms prior to community spread is under review.

      “Covid” is the first disease in history to have no clinical diagnosis. BS. COVID-19 is the viral destruction of human cells that leads to pathogenic infection from myriad opportunistic infections [both viral and bacterial].

      “Covid” is spread through the corporate media and government propaganda. BS. The fear of COVID is spread by the very media organisms that thrive upon fear. The most fearful are the most infected.

      The injections are a bioweapon. BS. The injections are a fiscal landfall.

      Use one of your two remaining grey-matter cells.

          COVID-19 is a symptom ascribed/assigned to an infection with the SARS-COV-19 virus. It exists. Just as Diabetes, COPD, AIDS, and Mental Retardation exist. They are all symptomatic indications of underlying infections/conditions. To dispute this infers the last.

          Isolating the virus’ genome is not required to specifically identify the effect it has had in a10% increase a all-cause deaths in the US in 2020.

            While I was racing my Chief in a low-crawl training exercise, with my loaded M-4 cradled, across the gravel in San Antonio one wonderful July afternoon, I asked him who was going to win. His response, “The guy that leads them.”

          Sometimes people assert that the virus has never been isolated; this paper from February 2020 says that Korean researchers did isolate SARS-CoV-2 in an infected patient, and they sequenced the genome:

          Couple of real BSMs, two V’s on my ribbon rack. A few 100 hours of combat aviation time, several 1000 in the Red Zone and only one casualty under my command. My Chief was my best friend. Ya’ll just don’t understand what it means to be -genuinely – physically dependent upon another human being. Stop with the suburbia-bitch crap.

          I cut the cable 20 years ago. Some have not. Those that have are skewed demographically in many ways.

          Not that I would ever presume any presumption of opinion based upon gender nor gender-preference nor belief in such…. It’s always entertaining to see the correlation.

            You must have flunked English 101, Jcp.

            No, you don’t use an apostrophe to create a plural.

          • JC Penny November 15, 2021 at 10:16 pm #

            MMFoS,

            Actually, I took English 101 as a P/F because it bored me and I saw little reason to strive for a 4.0 in such a mundane field.

            My Grandmother was an English teacher and lost to me in scrabble every year at Thanksgiving…initially as a motivator and eventually as … a motivation. She taught me many things, mostly about rational thought. [Her lessons on etiquette were ignored, as you have noticed.]

            While I’ll attempt to retain some of those lessons in the latter, let me restate what most that read this thread already know:

            The choice between plural vs. possessive in the word ‘slinky’ was very specific in it’s use. There happens to be a toy marketed in the 1970’s that bears the name and there are a variety of alternative inculcations of the term that may lend themselves to my use, in a possessive form. However, my use of the term was specifically possessive and sexually suggestive. I am sorry that you had to ask over and over again if I meant what I said… and I’m sorry I had to go to such great efforts to avoid explaining it.

            That’s a good thing, though. Now, work hard on the rest of your attendant audience to get them to come to the same realizations.

    The way I understand a bit of WW2 history, the Allies were not at all winning in 1942, shortly after the U.S. entered the war. It was not until sometime afterwards.

            The US and the USSR were allies, no matter what you have been taught to believe. Maybe back-stabbing allies, but allies all the same.
            Gave half of Europe to the USSR?
            The way I see it, the invasion of France and the run to Germany was the way that the US took control of half of Europe.
            And unlike the Soviet Union, the US is STILL occupying not just that half, but most of eastern Europe also.

    Never attribute to incompetence what is more accurately explained by malevolence, imo.
    It started last year with fear porn, stirred up with contradictory propaganda to confuse the masses, then continued with the banning of effective treatments, the payments for ineffective treatment, the changing of public health definitions, (like vaccine and herd immunity), the censoring and banning of dissidents, the overwhelming propaganda against effective treatments, and the pushing of the GMO injectible (now called “vaccine”).
    That can’t possibly be incompetence.
    Now they have a massive campaign to “remind” doctors and the public that “Children have always had heart attacks and strokes, remember?” which is running at the same time as the pressure to get children jabbed.
    But now we have AI to the rescue, for parents who submitted their children to the lottery and lost….

      Herbert Spencer first used the phrase “survival of the fittest”, after reading Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, in his Principles of Biology (1864), in which he drew parallels between his own economic theories and Darwin’s biological ones:

      “This survival of the fittest, which I have here sought to express in mechanical terms, is that which Mr. Darwin has called ‘natural selection’, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life.”

      It stands to reason that the current catch of obedient lemmings are not the fittest to survive and probably won’t.

    They test for the flu since they’ve never isolated Covid-19. Which makes me wonder how they can tell there is a delta variant. They never isolated the virus but they use a test to show the damage of a solution does on monkey kidney cells then show the cellular debris as proof of the virus. So, they can use this method to claim an UNENDING! amount of variants. A lot of cancers and “viruses” are probably just different forms of parasites. Since the tests can’t differentiate between cold and flu and covid then doesn’t that mean ivermectin cures both the cold and the flu?

    Don’t forget those LGBTQueer++++ truck drivers!!!!

    https://www.facebook.com/lgbttruckers/

    How Many LGBTQ+ Truck Drivers Are There?

    “There have been no official studies on the number of LGBTQ+ truck driver numbers. However, truck driver Anne Balay, Ph.D., took it upon herself to try to find out how many drivers identify as members of this community for her book Semi-Queer: Inside the World of Gay, Trans, and Black Truck Drivers. She spoke with hundreds of LGBTQ+ truckers, and she believes trans women may comprise as much as 3% of truck drivers overall. As of January 2021, the Facebook group LGBT Truckers has over 5,300 members.”

      When I read ‘lgbtq truck drivers” I was not really surprised by the trend. It rather fits the “lifestyle” as my poor frustrated, disappointed [in me] parents used to put it: no family ties to hold you down, no boss or office politics to deal with, independent and [if you want] anonymous existence. On the highway at speed you need to be watchful if not paranoid and let me assure you that is a survival characteristic baked into “deviants” as soon as, growing up, they come to realize their tendencies and the price one might have to pay for them.

    The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation – the University of Washington modelers, Bill Gates’s pets (their motto: almost as dumb as Neil Ferguson, but without the English accent, so not as good at getting publicity) has a new Covid forecast out for the winter. They now expect almost 1 million additional deaths from the end of October through March 1.

      Beryl,

      Glad you finally found the IMHE site. Good onya? Did someone forget to tell you where the source of the panic originated [primary objection to your fan-tastic reposts]? I found it for myself.

      That’s what caused this panic-attack. 20 months ago it was cited as the basis for “flattening the curve” because their projection showed 40M dead from COVID. Never happened. Never would. Their initial projections had two variables that predicted the complete end of the infection to occur in July 2020. Really.

      Their cite has gotten a little bit better even though the variable count is no more than 5 at this time.

      Yes. I have the historical data from my alma mater that shows them to be complicit in the destruction of the Western world.

    A functioning brain is the very first thing one must discard to live in today’s World of Post-Covid Lunacy. Functioning brains do not serve the Global Elite nor get one lots of Likes on Anti-Social Media.

    “… now, in the fall of 2021, here comes another surge of Covid-19 among both the vaxxed and un-vaxxed.”

    Anyone with a functioning brain would not be surprised at this. The ongoing Covid Crime is the Elitists golden goose. They are never giving this up.

          I suspect your immune system can probably recover if you do not continue with the shots.

          The most recent news out of the countries that have gone full tyranny is that the “boosters” will be required every six months. I take that to mean that they are systematically assaulting your person for reasons not yet entirely uncovered by what remains of the honest medical community, and if you stop after two, you are well ahead of those who continue.

      it doesn’t really matter to me exactly what role the engineered spike-protein, wuhan virus plays versus other flus and viruses. Larger or smaller, the spike wuhan bug can’t be much different effectively than any flu based on statistics. So, in this way, it doesn’t matter to me whether the wuhan spike flu exists or how prevalent it actually is. It’s pretty insignificant in any of the possible cases: existing, not existing, being prevalent or rare.

      • michael November 16, 2021 at 12:00 am #

        The spike protein is a work of genius:

        (1) fuses cells into symplasms
        (2) activates platelets leading to blood clots
        (3) migrates to the cell nucleus and interferes with DNA repair
        (4) down-regulates cancer cell elimination
        (5) down-regulates cellular recognition of viral RNA and DNA

        (1): fused cells are not viable, must be killed
        (3): interferes with B- and T-cell generation (these break and repair DNA deliberately to generate variety)
        (5): the cells then do not start defensive processes against viral replication (which now goes up by a factor of 100) nor do they notify other cells of the infection (via Interferon alpha)
        All in all (3)+(5) is a great attack on the immune system as a whole.

        (3)+(4) is carcinogenic.

        And all this can be done by the spike protein alone (e.g. the mRNA vaccines), the full virus is not needed.

        • michael November 16, 2021 at 12:03 am #

          I forgot: the spike protein is real, or do you doubt that?

          • Night Owl November 16, 2021 at 2:20 am #

            Yes, the shots are full of it according to Yeadon and McCullough.

            And it does not need to be part of a virus. The function of the MRNA shots is the only thing for which any real information is available.

            The actual “virus” has never been isolated and there is no test that can detect it. Furthermore excess mortality was almost non-existent over the past two years, and the death curve matches that of the annual flu, according to all stats I have seen.

            So what is the virus? Why do people keep speaking as though we all know what it is, or if it even exists?

            Every other facet of the hoax has been shown to be a lie, why should this be different — particulary when there appears to be no hard evidence for the claim?

          • Sean Coleman November 18, 2021 at 5:56 pm #

            This is interesting. I have tended to agree with Gustafson above but I am open to persuasion. How do we know the spike protein is real? I have been listening to various theories and it is difficult for me to try to get a picture. I have watching some videos by Italian scientist Stefano Scoglio, who took an extreme position on the existence of the wretched virus from the very beginning (like myself), and who is one of the four co-authors of the new edition of the book Virus Mania, which goes into some detail about the various scamdemics, all the way back to the 1918 flu. The other new author (to the original Kohnlein and Engelbrecht) is Kiwi Dr Sam Bailey.

            Anyhow, Scoglio argues that athere are four or five mechanisms in the body, mostly within cells, that make it most unlikely (in his opinion) that the MRNA gets through to the to make any impact. He cites a recent Japanese study that showed that about half of the ‘lipid particles(?)’ are excreted while the remainder lodge in sensitive parts of the body, like the spleen and the liver, for the most part. Scoglio says that they were not broken down.

            This strengthens my suspicion that the damage caused by the vaccine is mainly down to toxins, that is the lipd things and the aduvants. On the other hand, leading sceintiest in the field like Prof Bhakdi think the adverse effects are mainly caused by the spike proteins expressing themselves on the outside of the cells lining blood vessels. Or something like that. However I am ready to believe that they have all got it wrong in teh main, because this seems to me to be the case with just about evertything. Over the top of course, but that is my general belief.

    • Amman November 16, 2021 at 6:13 am #

      There are 2 Covid 19s which are the cause of confusion. One is Real, was in the labs and is related to Fauci, Medical Institutions and probably China. The other is Imaginary – it is a virus brought alive by propaganda as the cause of a non-existent pandemic. So the equation is —-> Covid-19 virus = Cr(real virus) + Ci(imaginary virus). This is known as a complex equation in Mathematics. Ci is far more dangerous than C real as it is this imaginary component that has opened the door to the Vaccinations, lockdowns, business shutdowns and those plans for what I consider to be a deranged and tyrannical assault on children.

    Hope by any means. We need it, to survive. Any means.

    • Rulo Deschamps November 15, 2021 at 7:17 pm #

      “In early Greek thought, hope is often seen as an attitude of those who have insufficient knowledge or are easily swayed by wishful thinking. It thus has a primarily negative reputation (Vogt forthcoming) as an attitude that (at least potentially) misleads actions and agents. Already Solon focuses on empty hopes (see Lewis 2006: 85; Caston and Kaster 2016). In the dialogues of Thucydides, it is similarly noted that those who hope typically have a poor understanding of their situation, fail to come up with good plans, and things go badly for them in war (The Peloponnesian War, 5.102–3, 5.113). A slightly more nuanced perspective is often seen to be reflected in Hesiod’s version of the tale of Pandora. When all the evils had escaped from Pandora’s jar, famously, only hope (elpis) remained (“Works and Days”, §90). This seems to suggest that hope can also sustain human agency in the fact of widespread evil. It must be noted, however, that there are many competing interpretations of why elpis remained in the jar (Verdenius 1985): Was it to keep hope available for humans or, rather, to keep hope from man? Is hope consequently to be regarded as good (“a comfort to man in his misery and a stimulus rousing his activity”, Verdenius 1985: 66) or as evil (“idle hope in which the lazy man indulges when he should be working honestly for his living”, Verdenius 1985: 66)? These different interpretations of Pandora’s myth are taken up throughout the history of Philosophy (especially among existentialist authors, see section 2.5).

      In the Timaeus, Plato also adopts a rather negative attitude towards hope by recounting a myth according to which the divine beings give us “those mindless advisers confidence and fear, (…) and gullible hope” (Timaeus, 69b). In the Philebus, by contrast, he seems to also allow for a more favorable view of the role of hope in human life. The relevant discussion of hope takes place in the context of an argument about “false pleasures”. Against Protarch’s objection that only opinions can be true or false, but not pleasures, Socrates develops an analogy between opinion and pleasure (Philebus, 36d). In this context, he describes “pleasures of anticipation”, that is, expectations of future pleasures, that are called hopes (Philebus, 39e3). As Frede (1985) argues, in the case of such pleasures of anticipation what we enjoy at present is only a thought. As there can be a discrepancy between the thought that we enjoy and what is in fact going to happen, the pleasure can be true—in which case it seems appropriate to say that the corresponding hope can be rationally endorsed—or false (Frede 1985: 174f.). The Philebus also presents hope as essential to human agency: Plato seems to suggest that all our agential representations are concerned with the future which connects them to hope (Vogt forthcoming).

      Another ancient account which does not attribute a merely negative role to hope is Aristotle’s whose treatment of hope in the context of his discussion of the virtue of courage has received some attention (Gravlee 2000; Lear 2008). On the one hand, Aristotle describes the relationship between hope and courage as a contrast. He identifies two sources of hopefulness that are non-courageous: First, it is possible to be hopeful “at sea […] and in disease”, but this hope does not involve courage, insofar as, in such situations, there is neither “opportunity of showing prowess” nor is death “noble” in these cases, according to Aristotle (Nicomachean Ethics 3.6, 1115a35ff.). Second, one can be hopeful based on one’s experience of good fortune (Nicomachean Ethics 3.8, 1117a10ff.). In this case, the belief in the probability of a good outcome is not well grounded, but founded on mere induction. Both kinds of hopefulness that are non-courageous. On the other hand, there is also a connection between hope and courage via the concept of confidence (Gravlee 2000). For example, Aristotle says:

      The coward, then, is a despairing sort of person; for he fears everything. The brave man, on the other hand, has the opposite disposition; for confidence is the mark of a hopeful disposition (Nicomachean Ethics 3.7, 1116a2)

      Thus, even though not every hopeful person is courageous, every courageous person is hopeful. Hopefulness creates confidence, which, if derived from the right sources, can lead to the virtue of courage. Gravlee (2000: 471ff.) identifies two further considerations that are relevant for hope’s value in Aristotle’s thought. First, hope underlies deliberation, which is needed for any exercise of a virtuous disposition. Second, hopefulness is also presented as valuable in its connection with youth and the virtue of megalopsychia (high-mindedness): hopefulness spurs us to the pursuit of the noble.

      Perhaps unsurprisingly, hope received a less favorable treatment by the Stoic philosophers. In particular, Seneca emphasizes hope’s relation to fear (an idea that is later taken up by Spinoza, see section 2.3):

      [t]hey are bound up with one another, unconnected as they may seem. Widely different though they are, the two of them march in unison like a prisoner and the escort he is handcuffed to. Fear keeps pace with hope. Nor does their so moving together surprise me; both belong to a mind in suspense, to a mind in a state of anxiety through looking into the future. Both are mainly due to projecting our thoughts far ahead of us instead of adapting ourselves to the present. (Seneca, Letter 5.7–8; in: 1969: 38)

      According to Seneca, we should avoid both fear and hope and instead focus on the present and cultivate tranquility of the soul”

      (plato.stanford.edu)

      All this to say that hope is a mixed bag. Sometimes one is better off without it.

      • MaryMaryFullOfPride November 15, 2021 at 7:49 pm #

        I’d sum it up somewhat by opining that one is magical thinking, and the other is hope for the future, built on the courage to do something about the present.

        • Rulo Deschamps November 15, 2021 at 11:15 pm #

          Mary, that’s one view. The part I find problematic is the second part of what you say, connecting hope and courage. I think the opposite is true, as Seneca states: “Fear keeps pace with hope”.

          Courage has no hope. Hope of a safe return undermines courage.

          My take is that hope is an impediment to courage, not an aid. Nobody, after all, gets out alive.

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride November 16, 2021 at 12:39 pm #

            So you connect courage more with desperation? Or am I reading that incorrectly? I suppose it might be different depending on the individual. But I personally have seen the most courageous stances or acts performed based on empathy and love and a hope for things to change.

            But I have also personally been very courageous and been impelled to be courageous when faced with a desperate situation.

        • Anthea November 17, 2021 at 1:28 am #

          Much of what is under discussion here is a matter of semantics; depends on your definition of “hope.”

          If hope is defined as as an expectation of future good–an expectation based on nothing at all, without even a clear idea of the nature of the anticipated future good, and with no intention of exerting oneself to bring some expected future good to realization–this is, as MaryMary said, mere wishful thinking.

          But you could, on the other hand, define hope as the expectation of achieving some future good as a well-defined goal, and its active pursuit by way of a series of well-defined steps–steps that are known to be effective. Nothing at all can be accomplished without this type of hope.

          One of the biggest problems you encounter with young people (if you want to help them get on in life) is the tendency to wish for and imagine certain happy outcomes–a good income, a nice car, home ownership–without making any of them a GOAL. There is no plan to be put into effect, no expectation of exerting themselves, no real resolve. They expect all their desires to fall into their laps. This type of thinking is just a way of anesthetizing oneself by choosing to live in a dream world. In extreme cases it can amount to mental illness.

      • Jarek November 15, 2021 at 8:30 pm #

        Sometimes optimism is more realistic. Sometimes pessimism.

        If your pessimism is realistic, it may lead you to a wise inaction or a wise action if you can improve things. Sometimes it is better to wait until conditions improve or clarify. As William Burroughs said, If you don’t know what to do, don’t do anything. That is very difficult for many.

        If it is unrealistic, it may lead you to despairing or unwise inaction. Or perhaps what would be wise inaction – if your assessment had been correct as per above. Or maybe you will luck out because things just aren’t as bad as you thought.

        Optimism can be broken down in the same way: realistic and unrealistic, leading to wise and unwise choices.

        In any case, neither one is good in all cases since conditions change. Obviously realistic assessment of which is correct is always preferable.

          • Proton November 15, 2021 at 9:12 pm #

          • Jarek November 15, 2021 at 9:18 pm #

            The Lamas of Tibet extol us to see the cup as always half full. Optimism! The future is bright if we let it be. Of course they aren’t talking about objective conditions but the subjective ability to make use of all conditions, both positive and negative. And secondarily, that ability will lead to better objective conditions, both directly and more mysteriously through “good luck”.

            This is Wisdom if understood and you can make it work. In contrast, the I Ching talks about objective conditions as well as subjective .

            Without acceptance, there will be no substantial counterweight.

            I’ve watched stuff like this play out so many times in my life that it almost isn’t even interesting anymore. Regardless of whether at the macro or micro level.

        • Rulo Deschamps November 15, 2021 at 11:30 pm #

          Very good, Jarek. Realistic and unrealistic assessments are key. The problem is, there’s so much night and fog in what information reaches us, it’s impossible to determine what’s realistic or unrealistic, in my view.

          So, in the absence of elements to make an informed decision, is hope a plus or a minus? I think you’d agree an enemy who has no hope of surviving is a more formidable enemy than one who hopes to go back home to his family.

          This is confirmed in cultures and philosophies different than Ancient Greece. Native Americans come to mind. The Yaqui, for example, who lived in what is now the SW US and NW Mexico – famous warriors who could go on without food and water for a long time, impervious to penury, cruel and strong in magic and focus, were trained to consider themselves dead already from a young age – death always two paces away, ready to strike. And no hope to bargain another day or year with her.

          Quite incredible to see you quoting W Burroughs, that old degenerate! But you’re right, one has to read far and wide to bring up pearls from the deep.

          Wise inaction is a concept especially difficult to understand in America, such a can-do society. But wise inaction is at least as valuable as wise action, maybe more. “To not-do is doing”.

          • Jarek November 16, 2021 at 12:12 am #

            I love the Beats. So off beat. More so than the conformist hippies tended to be. But of course, they had the music. And it was a mass movement. The Beats were the few, the precursors. A lot of them didn’t care for what came next, especially poor Kerouac hugging the American flag.

          • Night Owl November 16, 2021 at 8:06 am #

            There is more than enough information to act.

            Unfortunately, many are unable to critically weigh and measure evidence for what is occuring around us.

            Even on this blog, we still largely act as though Covid is most certainly real, and that the criminals foisting their agenda on us are cartoon characters with no real chance of succeeding.

            Did you know that as of yesterday Austria now has police patroling the streets for “unvaxed,” is levying 30k fines for those outside of their homes without a digital Beast Pass, and are promising further measures?

            The WEF’s Austrialian model just landed in Europe.

            Is I type, they are talking about imposing similar measures here in Germany.

            And let’s be honest. Who is going to stop them?

          • MaryMaryFullOfPride November 16, 2021 at 12:46 pm #

            From a friend in Germany:

            “New rules in Germany, starting tomorrow: complete lockdown for the unvaxxed. Only grocery shopping allowed, other shopping requires test. Public transportation, which most people take here in the big city, requires test as well. No more visits to hair salons, gyms etc. It‘s worse than last year‘s lockdown for everyone. The unvaxxed are blamed for the „high numbers“ and need to be punished. They are talking about “terror by the unvaxxed.”

            Austria is even worse: the unvaxxed are not allowed to leave their homes except for grocery shopping. They are not allowed to leave their counties either. Treated like criminals.”

            Agree, Night Owl, it’s bordering on the insane that people aren’t aware of what’s actually happening. I would also think CFNers would be onto the big picture of the global totalitarian takeover but some prefer to still pick through the weeds trying to figure out what covid19 is.

            It’s a hoax is what it is. It’s whatever the PTB want it to be. It’s flu, rebranded. It’s death, rebranded. It doesn’t matter. The fear and propaganda surrounding it are what matters. It’s all bullshit.

            He remembered those Yaqui, and held that tainted water in his mouth while walking out of there.

            Saved by German tourists, of course.

          • Night Owl November 16, 2021 at 5:18 pm #

            Mary, I have not heard about such a lockdown here. Where is your friend located in Germany?

            There is talk about “3G” for trains and in some places 3G applies to certain stores if the fraudulent case count increases (which usually happens right around the time they start making threats).

            Austria started made its move into fascism yesterday, but Germany seems like it might still have a few weeks before they have the Brownshirts patroling the local Einkaufszentrum.

            I know it is coming though. It is a curse and a blessing to be tuned in to reality.

            I caught an item on the Nooz tonight about these food delivery robots.

            https://d.ibtimes.co.uk/en/full/1530669/starship-technologies-delivery-robot.jpg

            This is always the way they do it in the UK – introduce the concept in a cutesy way, without telling you that one day its cousin, fitted with a taser, or worse, will meet you at your front door and escort you to a holding station.

            Same as they recently introduced the first government social credit system in the form of a health app delivering rewards for healthy choices in food and exercise. Stuff that the kidults will really go for without a second thought.

          • Anthea November 17, 2021 at 2:00 am #

            I read Naked Lunch decades ago. It is rather interesting from the standpoint of life reduced to nothing more than the pain/pleasure response of addiction. Apart from the degradation of being willing to do anything for the fix, Burroughs describes the life of the addict as incredibly prosaic and one-dimentsional. One of his descriptions fo addicts is that they are “drearily sane.”

            There is a lesson here about a life reduced to “getting and spending.”

            All in all, I never cared much for the “beats” though. Kerouac is an almost incredible bore, and Ginsberg always seemed to me to be an affected old poofter.

            ‘Wise inaction is a concept especially difficult to understand in America, such a can-do society. But wise inaction is at least as valuable as wise action, maybe more. “To not-do is doing”.’

            Rulo, for some reason your comment made me think of my years working in Japan: this is a classic Japanese tactic in business negotiations, particularly with a foreign counterpart who is not hip to the trick. It inevitably drives visiting American businesspeople crazy: “I have a plane to catch”. [ProTip: you just lost.]

            In dealing with Japanese – inevitably in a huddle where shared responsibility and equal contributions make for powerful strategy – you have to be ready for such ‘creative inaction’ because otherwise you’re liable to make a hasty blunder and lose the match. They know it and when they know you know it the sour, annoyed expressions tell you they are not happy about your knowing it.

            I spent a total of 8 years in Japan, on and off, starting in 1962, and came to admire their subtle cleverness, smooth stubbornness and infinite patience.

            Although at one time in my innocent youth I had planned to spend the remainder of my life there, it did not take long to become quite disabused of the notion. Deep down they do not care for foreigners, particularly those gaijin presumptuous enough to live on their crowded, sad, despoiled islands.

            Speedy BB,

            enjoyed your comments about Japan.

            Inaction. Be the master of your time. Don’t make a move under pressure. Be comfortable with uncertainty. Do not be bum-rushed!

            Also: inaction can mean, I don’t need to watch your “news”. I’m fine hoeing my rows with no need to know what’s going on in the world. The “news”. Thoreau has some great paragraphs about that in Walden.

            Not enough to act-act.

        ‘Our bodies are given life from the midst of nothingness.

          tucson, “Form is emptiness.”

          This is true in much of art. Especially abstract art, maybe. But to a degree, in all art. It’s not so much what is said, but what is left unsaid – it’s not the sculpture, is the air around it.

          Many detective and mystery stories are also based in this concept. Not what is there, but what is not, and should be, and why.

          Whose quote is it?

          • tucsonspur November 16, 2021 at 4:28 am #

            Of course the words ‘existing where there is nothing’ and ‘given life from the midst of nothingness’ can be seen as monumentally presumptuous.

            ‘I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.’

            The marble did exist. ‘Form’ was in the mind of Michelangelo and one can certainly ask whether an idea or vision itself has form. Can one say that the idea itself has no substance when it originates from neurons and synapses and electrochemical stimulation? Maybe so. The end product of ideas is another story.

            The words border on an ineffable mysticism.

            In the movie “Ghost Dog”, Forest Whitaker is reading from the ‘Hagakure’ and quotes it throughout.

            It’s the ‘Way of the Samurai’.

            And those ineffable strings that sang the universe into being, or string theory, same thing.

        “The coward, then, is a despairing sort of person; for he fears everything. The brave man, on the other hand, has the opposite disposition; for confidence is the mark of a hopeful disposition”

        Rulo, Seneca might be right, fear walks hand in hand with hope, better to be here now, (as Mitch on here emphasizes).

        But Ru, for what is nearly upon us, we need faith, hope & love.
        When the mass suicides begin it will be like runoff from a storm, and unless we are well, very well contained in our ship, tied between Alphonse Liguories two pillars, we shall be swept away in that river of despair that I believe will be caused by the vaxxed waking up.

        Do you have any idea how contagious suicide is?

        Very good read, thanks.

        You know how before the tragedy the Greeks would sacrifice? (And South Park does it with Kenny) They were experiencing such turmoil in their society that they needed a catharsis. The tragedy itself was always worse than what was happening in society at that time, war, collapse, plague. So we get mofos, literally! And all that other nasty businessin those great plays.

        Well we are going to need a Catharsis Ru. I don’t want drugs, I don’t want to go to jail. I want to survive with hope.

        How did your neighbours survive the worst of the collapse Ru?
        How did you and your family?

          6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

          7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

            Scary stuff, OG. In religion, the astral twins hope – fear are perhaps expressed in “hope for heaven – fear for hell” as a guide to one’s life. I hasten to add I respect it and would not question faith, which is a great gift and can be a great comfort and support.

            Some or us have not received the gift, or had it and lost it, but don’t think we’re devoid of a moral sense, of good and evil, and do the right thing without hope, or fear.

        • Rulo Deschamps November 15, 2021 at 11:55 pm #

          anmari, we surely need love. Hope, I’m not so sure. Faith, it is a gift, not given to all.

          Suicide is certainly wrong. A luxury, a waste, when there’s others to help, when every extra minute on this plane of existence offers a chance to offset or remedy or combat evil, in the world or in ourselves.

          But making a moral line in the sand and deciding that’s it, I’m not crossing it, and I’ll fight to the death any attempts to make me cross it is not suicide. I’d say it’s the opposite of suicide. It’s a celebration of life, of a life well lived that will not compromise with what cannot be accepted just for the privilege of avoiding death for another hour. Pointless. Death always wins. What’s an hour more or less?

          I don’t want drugs, or to go to jail either! What are you talking about? The jabs? Let’s not rush to conclusions – as Jarek says above, it’s better to wait until one has enough elements to decide whether action, or inaction, is warranted. But yeah, if it turns out it’s a worst case scenario, one doesn’t need hope. One needs clarity about what’s his line in the sand, and then to just go on living as best as possible, doing good and eating, drinking, being merry. Maybe one could say “I hope it’s not the worst case scenario”, but that opens the door to fear.

          “According to Seneca, we should avoid both fear and hope and instead focus on the present and cultivate tranquility of the soul”

          The worst of what collapse? You mean the periodic collapses in Argentina? Which one? Collapse is overrated, in any case. “Focus on the present and cultivate tranquility of the soul”, that’s how.

            Excellent riposte Ru, especially the part where you say ‘collapse is overrated.’

            And I will put to bed my silly attempts at convincing, for I know faith is a gift, given me in one awe full song.

          • Soul Forensics November 16, 2021 at 9:01 pm #

            rulo,

            Having hope is a complex topic. Depends on the individual’s understanding and discrimination and circumstantial context.

            Advaita Vedantists would discount hope as it posits its opposite, hopelessness, and so is just one more dualism. (Advaita Vedanta translates as non-dual truth.)

            Hope, in a broader Buddhist context, is illusion. Wishing on the future, meaning is one is not seeing the present, (and that the future is an illusion anyway).

            The Stoics, as you say, are against hope because it usually means the person involved is trying desperately to avoid suffering by not seeing any grim consequences of actions which one can’t control.

            All that said, context, again, is everything. Most people aren’t spiritually attuned enough to be without hope. Without hope, depression and suicide is a real outcome. In those cases (and that involves most of us), delusion to some degree is preferable to living without hope.

          • Rulo Deschamps November 18, 2021 at 8:13 pm #

            Soul, thank you for that.

            In my case, I don’t have a problem living without hope, and suicide is not an option.

            The antidote that works for me is gratitude. For what I’ve received, knowing I’ve been fortunate – no need for further gifts.

          • SpeedyBB November 18, 2021 at 10:04 pm #

            I can think of more than a few that I wouldn’t mind suiciding, given the opportunity (and no unsightly clues left behind).

            More and more, as I get older (and crankier), it looks like there are heap plenty evildoers who really and truly need suiciding.

            There, I’ve said it. (No lightning bolts out of the clouds aiming at me yet.)

        Hope. I’ve tossed this in the recycling bin along with “trust” and “belief” – but it keeps climbing out and scurrying around on my kitchen floor. Hope is a toxin/intoxicant I try to avoid. It says, “We can!” when obviously we can’t. Hope resists reason and is therefore a delusion – and a poison.

        But it sure feels good. Yeah, I’ll give ya that. Might prefer to OD on hope rather than “reason”.

          BB, copy that. It’s a complex topic, as Soul says above. There’s more than one version of hope.

          The saccharine, Hallmark card version, the Obama poster version is, for many, the only way to think about it. There’s others. The important thing is to think for ourselves, in this as in everything.

      benr, what’s also being discussed is what happens if Kyle R is not convicted. Place boarded up, Nat Guard on stand by, etc.

      But I thought burn, loot, murder was a warm weather entertainment? It’s pretty cold where I live already, up there it must be colder…

      In any case, I hope that young man walks. Let the savages burn their own town.

      • Blackbird November 16, 2021 at 5:41 pm #

        I think Kyle will be acquitted only because it serves the longer agenda. The judge – by his “obviously” “Pro-Kyle” actions – is already setting this up for a mistrial – I meant, “mistrial”.

        Meanwhile, within minutes after Kyle is acquitted, watch the upper midwest burst into flames of indignation. (We hate ourselves so goddamn much!) Watch white people defend their homes – rather than opening them to the self-identified “oppressed”. Watch the confiscation of firearms – only from those lawfully holding them.

        Then again, maybe this is just a difficult flu season – like last year’s only worse, and we will get through it – together…

      Pelosi is pretty unlikable, too. And she is next in line.

      While Americans are focused on who is likable, the Great Reset continues nearly unopposed.

      • Blackbird November 16, 2021 at 5:54 pm #

        Pelosi is next in line only if The Big Guy and the Ho bite the dust at the same time. Not happenin’.

        First Step, 2 possibilities:

        1) The Big Guy stumbles offstage and the Ho breaks the glass ceiling. Yay women. Ho names a new VP – fuck you voters (see Gerald Ford and Nelson Rockefeller, 1974).

        2) The Ho gets her Only Fans site hacked and – well, let’s just say, “most downloaded ever”. The Big Guy names a new VP – fuck you voters (see JoeyJoJo and the Hildebeast, 2022).
        oh, ok,

        3) The White House water heater (not “hot water heater”) blows up beneath the Big Guy and the Ho during some Greta Thunberg photo op while he is rubbing her – BOOM! (Not gonna happen – for many reasons.)

        The Ho goes. The Hildabeast is appointed in her place. The Big Guy joins Epstein and Co. at the Pink Pony.

        See it now, or see it when it happens.

      Among other things they just don’t seem to “get” that “wokeness” is a PITA that is annoying a lot of people big-time.

    I would never take Vitamin D in a pill, but what I would do is sunbathe naked in my backyard when the sun is shinin’ and eat lotsa fruit. Just sayin/

    • GreenAlba November 15, 2021 at 8:32 pm #

      OK, so we have to sunbathe when the sun is shining. Just as well you clarified, TC. 🙂

      • Rulo Deschamps November 16, 2021 at 12:46 am #

        Nakedness, combined with lotsa fruit, is a potent comedic weapon. It’s a mystery why. There’s nothing inherently funny in nakedness or fruit, but combine the two, bang, laughs. Probably something politically incorrect.

        In any case: vitamin D, good. Laughter, doubleplusgood. Thank you both for boosting my immune system.

        • GreenAlba November 16, 2021 at 4:48 am #

          I wasn’t actually laughing at the notion of fruit and nakedness, but merely (and only gently) at the tautology of sunbathing when the sun shines. One can hardly sunbathe when it it not shining. Not as usefully, anyway.

            Not true, GA! At least, technically.

            On a cloudy day, up to 80% of UV light can penetrate through clouds (all other factors — latitude, time of season, time of day, etc — applicable).

          • GreenAlba November 17, 2021 at 6:47 am #

            Yes and no, SF. I agree you can still get sun, but most people wouldn’t think of that as sunbathing. 🙂

            Ireland used to be second only to Australia for skin cancers precisely because people would be exposing themselves unknowingly to harmful rays without using protection.

            Of course protection prevents the acquisition of Vit. D. For us paleskins in northern Celtic climes, it is always a balance.

            Thankfully Vit. D is one of those things that is every bit as effective from a bottle.

      Indeed – the vast majority of people can get more than enough Vitamin D by just spending an hour or two in their backyard when the sun’s shining. You do not have to be naked.

            Most climates also do not provide enough sun throughout the year.

            If you live in the tropics, you are fine with this method. If you live anywhere north of say, the Mason Dixon line, you are going to need lots of pills.

            Most people in the world have a deficiency, and it can be debilitating if it gets bad enough.

      Tom: then you are a silly ass and you don’t understand vitamin D at all.

      Good luck, silly billy.

    According to the MSM: “right wing sources’ have spread the terrible canard that Bedpan Biden pooped his pants on the Pope’s good furniture.

    The always reliable people at Snopes (sarc) took the issue so seriously they “investigated” it. What a nose for news those ex-hooker fact checkers must have. Conclusion:
    “U.S. President Joe Biden pooped his pants during a meeting with Pope Francis in Rome. – False”

    Who am I to dispute the might Snopes? But I will be watching the next visit to see if the Pope makes Biden sit on a vinyl kitchen chair with newspaper underneath.

      It’s not a canard, it’s the stinky truth. I follow Bergoglio’s comments in the semi-official CASLA page (Club Atletico San Lorenzo de Almagro, the soccer club of his childhood), where he posts around 3 am Rome time often and with many typos due to overindulgence in Mass muscatel, and know for a fact that a rare throne used by Pius IX was desecrated. Two of Pope Leo XIII Chiavari Chairs were severely splattered but salvageable, the throne a total loss.

      Corruption, pedophilia, abortion, incest were not enough to excommunicate this degenerate, but if Francis’ drunken rant is to be taken seriously, there will be news in the next few days, when the reupholstery bill arrives…
