Australia’s COVID Outbreak Worsens Despite Economy-Crippling Lockdowns (ZH)

By some inexplicable phenomenon, Sydney’s COVID outbreak has continued to worsen (albeit by margins that most cities would consider negligible) despite the lockdown measures that have been in place for nearly three weeks at this point. Now, the prospect for another lockdown extension looms as Australia’s largest city and the surrounding state – New South Wales, Australia’s largest by population – reports 112 new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases, almost all of which were linked to Sydney. However, there was a silver lining: the number of newly infected out in the community declined to 34 from 45. But fears about the delta variant, which has been driving the spread, might lead to even more draconian measures.

State Premier Gladys Berejiklian said it was this last figure that would, in the coming days, determine whether Sydney’s lockdown, due to end on Friday, would be extended. “That’s the number we need to get as close to zero as possible,” Berejiklian said during her daily televised briefing. “It is really up to us. The health expert advice will be based on what those numbers look like. I can’t be clearer than that.” Sydney is bracing for a longer and stricter lockdown after continued increases in COVID-19 cases, while the New South Wales Premier stated things are going to get worse before they get better. The outbreak has prompted the Australia-Singapore travel bubble to be delayed until at least the end of the year, according to Australian press reports, despite the fact that nearly all of the new cases reported on Monday involved family members or friends of previously diagnosed patients.

Meanwhile, a new report from Deloitte showed that consumer movement-related activity in the city’s central business district has plunged by nearly 90% in the two weeks since the Sydney lockdown started compared to its levels from two years ago. Even in Melbourne, where restrictions were just lifted, movement remained off 80% from the levels a year ago. The drop in activity is placing small businesses and restaurants in a difficult position. The iconic Melbourne rooftop bar Madame Brussels announced Monday that it would become the latest victim of the pandemic when it closes its doors next week after 15 years. “The city’s just not coming back,” co-owner Paula Scholes said.

Fauci Calls For ‘More Vaccine Mandates At The Local Level’ (ZH)

The nation’s highest-paid employee in the US government, Anthony Fauci, has gone full-throttle on vaccines – this time with a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” where he pushed for vaccine mandates at the local level, and slammed a guest speaker at CPAC (Alex Berenson) for applauding young people for researching vaccine side-effects. Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases Director appeared on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday to give his opinion on vaccine mandates. He agrees with the White House and President Biden himself, saying vaccination mandates should be the next step. “I have been of this opinion, and I remain of that opinion, that I do believe at the local level, Jake, there should be more mandates,” Fauci told host Jake Tapper. “There really should be.”

For fear of more people dying, Fauci strongly supports mandates. “We’re talking about life and death situation. We have lost 600,000 Americans already, and we’re still losing more people,” Fauci said. “There have been 4 million deaths worldwide. This is serious business. So I am in favor of that.” Meanwhile, at the Conservative Political Action Conference, author Alex Berenson called out the vaccination efforts as a scam. “The government was hoping that they could sort of sucker 90% of the population into getting vaccinated,” Berenson said. “And it isn’t happening.” People in the audience cheered when they heard that. On the other hand, Fauci called the reaction “horrifying.”

As a result, the NIAID director says the solution to vaccine hesitancy is official approval from the Food and Drug Administration. “One of the things that will happen, and I think the hesitancy at the local level of doing mandates is because the vaccines have not been officially fully approved,” Fauci said. “But people need to understand that the amount of data right now that shows a high degree of effectiveness and a high degree of safety is more than we’ve ever seen with the emergency use authorization, so these vaccines are as good as officially approved with all the I’s dotted and T’s crossed. It hasn’t been done yet because the FDA has to do certain things. But it’s as good as done. So people should really understand that. But they are waiting now until you get an official approval before. And I think when you do see the official approval, you’ll see a lot more mandates.”

Just over half have gotten at least one shot. That’s very far from Biden’s ideal. And rates decline fast.

‘You’ve Got To Go One-On-One’: Fauci (F.)

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday defended the Biden administration’s door-to-door vaccine effort as some Republican governors push back on it, stressing targeted, one-on-one outreach would be key to lowering the number of unvaccinated Americans. Speaking to CBS This Morning, Fauci said the U.S. vaccination effort was in the beginning focused on “large efforts like auditoriums or sports arenas filled with people getting vaccinated” but now needed to become more targeted. “You’ve got to go one on one” to reach the “core, lesser group” of unvaccinated Americans, Fauci said. Last week, President Joe Biden announced his administration will begin sending volunteers door-to-door to urge Americans to get immunized, along with other initiatives.


The announcement came after the U.S. fell just short of Biden’s goal of partially or fully vaccinating at least 70% of adults by July 4. Health experts have expressed concern that Biden is not doing enough to convince more Americans to get the shot as vaccination rates remain low and the more infectious Delta variant begins to spread in the U.S. “Now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door to door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” Biden said in a speech on Tuesday. [..] 55.5%. That’s the percentage of Americans who have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. About half of unvaccinated Americans—46%—said they would “definitely not” ever get the vaccine in a recent AP/NORC poll. Just 7% said they “definitely will” get a shot.

“The problem is that if you let your doctor talk you into doing it his way for long enough the damage will be irreversible..”

What If…. (Denninger)

Why do you think you get told to go ahead and eat the carbs — chase it with drugs if you’re Type II diabetic? The zero cost option is to stop eating the carbs. If you do it early enough then there’s a good chance your body will heal and the damage will not only stop, it will be reversed. No, this doesn’t mean you can go back to eating the pizzas with wild abandon, but it does mean you’ll never need a single blood-sugar related drug, nor will your toes and fingers drop off and your kidneys will likely not fail. The problem is that if you let your doctor talk you into doing it his way for long enough the damage will be irreversible and then you’re beholden to ever-more expensive drugs and, ultimately, likely surgeries and even dialysis. If you walk that path you may or may not expire from something else first but you certainly will spend a hell of a lot of money on the journey with virtually all of it being unnecessary.

What makes you think that’s not what they just did under cover of a respiratory pandemic that was destined to burn itself out like every other respiratory viral pandemic for which we have good records spanning more than 100 years, and in fact which had done so in the United States and was on the wane before the first shot went into the first arm? What if your life and that of your children are now a service, courtesy of Moderna and Pfizer at whatever cost they wish to impose on you now and into the indefinite future with the price of quitting being a much-higher risk of death, and what if that is in fact exactly what pharma, the medical industry, Trump and Biden all had in mind originally and still do? Think I’m wrong? Have a look at the 2018 MTS and what happened to Medicare payments.

This fiscal ended in September of 2018, the second year of Trump’s Presidency. Prescription drug spend was down from 95 billion to $82 billion, a decrease of close to 15%. Hospital spend was nearly flat – up right at 1%. Do you think Pharma and hospital administrators liked that? The next year drug spend was up 3.6% and then ending in September of 2020 it was up 5.3%. Hospitalization? That posted a 26% increase year ending September 2020 with hospitals being paid $39,000 per person by Medicare to shove a tube down your throat and kill you instead of being paid to give you drugs early with them only getting paid when you didn’t get intubated and die. In other words health care as a service which in fact paid more to kill Seniors was good for a 26% increase in what the federal government spent despite killing a half-million people with the vast majority of them being Senior Citizens on Medicare.

We didn’t pay for performance we paid for a subscription even though what it bought sucked and in fact killed your Grandmother. Do you think that’s stopped? Well then you better look at the current MTS which says that while hospitalization spend is down (gee, all the old people who could be easily killed seem to already be dead and we ran out of suckers we could exploit by sticking a toe tag on them) when it comes to prescription drugs the current year spend via said subscription model scam is up 12.4% over last year thus far on a comparable-period basis! Don’t you think we should have proved that wasn’t the model being intended for these shots to be forced on EVERYONE before we started letting people get stabbed when the data before us, on October 15st of 2020, was that indeed that was exactly the model the health care system had run for the previous fiscal year into the maw of the pandemic and got paid to deliberately not treat people early which both led to their death and got them paid a record amount, an utterly obscene additional EIGHTY TWO BILLION DOLLARS above the previous year’s expense?

You better hope that’s not what they tricked you into because if it is you’re screwed at least economically and may be ****ed out of your life. I remind you that the MTS proves that is exactly what they did to Seniors when it came to medical care just during the first six months of the pandemic to the tune of $82 BILLION which was in fact paid out as a reward for generating 500,000 CORPSES. But you still won’t make them stop — will you?

Not the most convincing graph but the trend is clear.

Infections Decline in the Unvaccinated as They Surge in the Vaccinated (LDS)

I reported last week on the striking fact that, according to data from the ZOE Covid Symptom study, new symptomatic daily infections appeared to be plateauing in the unvaccinated while they were surging in the vaccinated. The trend has continued since then, with infections now entering decline in the unvaccinated while those in the vaccinated (with at least one dose) continue to surge (see graph). Around 67% of the population has received at least one vaccine dose, so the fact that there are still more infections in the smaller unvaccinated group means no conclusion can be drawn from the current figures about the vaccines not being effective.

Also, while more people are being vaccinated all the time, that steady trend is nowhere near large enough to account for the sharp changes in infection incidence we see here. With infections in the unvaccinated already peaking and falling, despite the Delta variant, this drives a coach and horses through arguments for the supposed importance of vaccinating children and hesitant young people – including through inducements like vaccine passports for pubs, clubs and restaurants, now being mooted for the autumn. Why the vaccinated are having their Delta surge later than the unvaccinated is an interesting question. Is it because the vaccines make them more resistant to infection? Does the age difference help explain it? Or is it something else?


Whatever the explanation, the important point is that without any new restrictions or a big new vaccine push, infections in the unvaccinated are already falling. In the current climate of pushes to extend restrictions, delay ‘Freedom Day’, and vaccinate everyone whether they want it or not, this is hugely significant. It means all those arguments to continue restrictions and pile on the pressure for vaccination because of the Delta variant are complete nonsense. That new daily infections are still rising in the population as a whole is now because they are rising among the vaccinated, not the unvaccinated. They will likely peak soon in the vaccinated, too, just as they already have in Scotland.

“..we live in a time when reality is exceptionally slippery..”

A Bodyguard of Lies (Kunstler)

A bunch of readers sent me a video on the Odysee platform that seems to have lit up the Internet over the weekend, a conversation between the international lawyer Reiner Fuellmich and a character named David Martin, PhD, CEO of M-Cam, a company that researches and advises on intellectual property and patents, especially in medicine. Dr. Martin is “a fellow” at the University of Virginia School of Business Administration and formerly an assistant professor at UVa’s School of Medicine. Mr. Fuellmich is a German national who claims to be bringing a case to the world court to prosecute various parties for hoaxing the world over the coronavirus we call Covid-19.

Mr. Fuellmich’s claim is based on the allegation that the world has been played by “a PCR test pandemic,” not by a novel coronavirus, saying that the PCR test is entirely unreliable, but was used to generate millions of “cases.” Dr. Martin claims that scores of patents were filed as far back as 2008 on features found in Covid 19 — the spike protein, the polybasic cleavage site, and the ace-2 receptor binding domain — by people doing “bioweapons” research at the University of North Carolina (e.g., Dr. Ralph Baric) as well as the US Military’s DARPA, the Wuhan, China, virology lab, and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), much of it intermediated by Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance, and allegedly involving a criminal conspiracy with several pharmaceutical companies to make a lot of money off an engineered global health emergency. He claims further that the mRNA vaccines are “medical devices” designed to induce illness.

This complex story has its charms (Fuellmich & Martin are very good talkers) and has undergone serial debunkings by some of the usual debunkers, themselves not necessarily reliable organs of debunkery, such as The Washington Post. Dr. Martin appears to be associated with the “Plandemic” crowd and with some marginal crypto-religious groups inveighing against Jewish conspiracies and freemasonry — two big red flags for me.

But we live in a time when reality is exceptionally slippery and there are parts of the story that are now accepted as real in the emergent consensual reality of what actually happened. For instance: that Dr. Anthony Fauci funded gain-of-function research using Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance as a conduit. And the numerous patent records do exist within the stated time-line. The scientific and legal facts around all this are abstruse, and most college-educated (and beyond) Americans might have trouble processing the story.

Suppressing dissent is what the US does at home, better than anyone.

Cuba’s Internet Cutoff: A Go-to Tactic To Suppress Dissent (AP)

Cubans facing the country’s worst economic crisis in decades took to the streets over the weekend. In turn, authorities blocked social media sites in an apparent effort to stop the flow of information into, out of and within the beleaguered nation. Restricting internet access has become a tried-and-true method of stifling dissent by authoritarian regimes around the world, alongside government-supported disinformation campaigns and propaganda. On the extreme side, regimes like China and North Korea exert tight control over what regular citizens can access online. Elsewhere, service blockages are more limited, often cutting off common social platforms around elections and times of mass protests.

There was no formal organizer of Sunday’s protests; people found out about the rallying points over social media, mostly on Twitter and Facebook, the platforms most used by Cubans. The thousands of Cubans who took to the streets — protesters and pro-government activists alike — wielded smartphones to capture images and send them to relatives and friends or post them online. On Monday, Cuban authorities were blocking Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Telegram, said Alp Toker, director of Netblocks, a London-based internet monitoring firm. “This does seem to be a response to social media-fueled protest,” he said. Twitter did not appear to be blocked, though Toker noted Cuba could cut it off if it wants to.

While the recent easing of access by Cuban authorities to the internet has increased social media activity, Toker said, the level of censorship has also risen. Not only does the cutoff block out external voices, he said, it also squelches “the internal voice of the population who have wanted to speak out.” Internet access in Cuba has been expensive and relatively rare until recently. The country was “basically offline” until 2008, then gradually entered a digital revolution, said Ted Henken, a Latin America expert at Baruch College, City University of New York. The biggest change, he noted, came in December 2018 when Cubans got access to mobile internet for the first time via data plans purchased from the state telecom monopoly. These days, more than half of all Cubans have internet access, Henken said.

White House Urges Cities To Use Covid Funds To Help Combat Violent Crime (JTN)

The White House sent a memo to state and local officials Monday, urging them to use some of the COVD-19 relief funds to help combat the rise of violent crime. The memo outlines how states should use the funds provided by President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package to reduce crime, such as supporting law enforcement, investing in community-based violence interventions, and enforcing gun laws. “The core of the President’s plan is a partnership with cities and states, equipping local leaders with historic levels of federal funding and a range of tools to address the multifaceted challenge of gun violence,” the memo said, according to The Hill.


The memo also notes that Biden requested $300 million in funding for the COPS program, a program made by the Department of Justice for community-centered policing, and an additional $750 million for federal law enforcement agencies. Biden is expected to meet with Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams – who is also the Democrat nominee for New York City mayor – as well as with other mayors across the country.

50% of value gone, but nobody sells.

Just 5% Of All Bitcoins In Circulation Have Traded In The Past Year (ZH)

In JPMorgan’s latest weekly bitcoin hit piece (because for some “inexplicable” reason, JPMorgan executive have instructed most of the bank’s strategists, including those covering equity and rates, to slam the cryptocurrency on a weekly if not daily basis while the bank quietly builds out its own proprietary crypto fund, almost as if it is desperate to scare its clients into selling), the bank makes an interesting argument: bitcoin is not liquid enough to be successfully implemented as a legal tender in El Salvador.

We won’t speak to the validity of JPM’s argument – we will soon find out first hand whether or not El Salvador made a mistake in adopting bitcoin as legal tender – although it certainly is simple enough: “daily payment activity in El Salvador would represent ~4% of recent on-chain transaction volume and more than 1% of the total value of tokens which have been transferred between wallets in the past year,” the report said, with the illiquidity and nature of the volume “potentially a significant limitation on its potential as a medium of exchange.”

Perhaps, then again in its brief history bitcoin has certainly demonstrated that it is remarkably scalable and viable even without a central bank propping it up every time there is even a modest risk-flaring hiccup, which is much more than we could ever say about the global stock market or currencies such as Europe’s “whatever it takes” euro. Of course, JPMorgan – a bank that directly benefited form more than one multibilion bailout – will be the last to admit just how much sustainable the cryptocurrency has become, which is why we will ignore the bank’s latest round of propaganda, but will point out an interesting fact unearthed by JPMorgan: it goes straight to the heart of the recurring argument why bitcoin is so volatile.

The reason, as JPM has discovered, is that bitcoin’s float may be as little as 5%, if not less. Discussing the daily trading volumes of bitcoin, JPM notes that a large fraction of Bitcoin are locked up in illiquid entities (liquidity sinks), “with more than 90% not changing hands in more than a year” while roughly 80% – and rising – are held by wallets with light turnover. This means that a paltry 5-10% of all bitcoin in circulation has traded in the past year. Another way of putting it: an asset with a $600 billion market cap has a float of just $30 billion. Which is remarkable as it means that no whales sold bitcoin when it hit its all time high of $65,000. And if they didn’t sell then, they certainly won’t sell now when it’s half that price.

Trump: Why I’m Suing Big Tech (ZH)

Following last week’s announcement that President Trump was filing a class-action lawsuit suing the CEOs of Facebook, Twitter and Google over allegations of illegal censorship, Trump has published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal where he lays out his legal team’s argument: Big Tech has colluded with government to censor the free speech of the American people, Trump said. Since social media has become “as central to free speech as town meeting halls, newspapers and television networks were in prior generations.” Despite the fact that the internet is “the new public square”, Big Tech has become increasingly “brazen and shameless in censoring and discriminating against ideas, information and people on social media – banning users, deplatforming organizations, and aggressively blocking the free flow of information on which our democracy depends.”

“No longer are Big Tech giants simply removing specific threats of violence. They are manipulating and controlling the political debate itself.” Trump also cited Big Tech’s decision to bar him from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. “Perhaps most egregious, in the weeks after the election, Big Tech blocked the social-media accounts of the sitting president. If they can do it to me, they can do it to you—and believe me, they are.” While Chinese and Iranian propagandists are allowed to operate with impunity, social media platforms have attacked a Michigan schoolteacher for sharing an article questioning whether mandatory masks are suitable for young children in schools. A Florida couple that lost their 21-year-old son in a fatal car accident caused by a 2x-deported illegal immigrant was censored by Facebook when they posted about border security and immigration enforcement, Trump said.

These regular people will appear as plaintiffs alongside Trump and his America First Policy Institute, which is co-sponsoring the litigation. Worst of all, when Democrats in Congress demand that big tech CEOs “fact check” what they insist are “false” stories, Trump says that these “disinformation” labels are supplied by partisan fact-checkers loyal to the Democratic Party. This is tantamount to “suppression of speech that those in power do not like.” “Through these lawsuits, I intend to restore free speech for all Americans—Democrats, Republicans and independents. I will never stop fighting to defend the constitutional rights and sacred liberties of the American people.” Finally, Trump cited the Trusted News Initiative, a program whereby Twitter, Facebook and Google all take orders from the CDC about which information to combat.

“It’s a Democrat machine; it should be a campaign contribution.”

Trump: Big Tech Is ‘Getting The Biggest Subsidy Ever (JTN)

Former President Donald Trump discussed his class-action lawsuit against Big Tech censorship on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” saying he believes it will be “very successful.” Trump said the lawsuit will “wind its way through the courts, I think it’s gonna be very successful … It’s been very well received, very popular, a lot of legal scholars are saying it’s about time.” The lawsuit was filed against the CEO’s of Google, Facebook, and Twitter, alleging that censorship is a violation of the First Amendment and applies to private companies because they are working for government officials. Section 230 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act allows websites to remove obscene content. Trump is arguing that this immunity is like a government subsidy.


“They’re getting the biggest subsidy that any company has ever gotten from a government,” Trump explained. “They’re immune from so many different things, but they’re not immune from this lawsuit because what they’ve done is such a violation of the Constitution. A violation like we’ve never seen before.” “They work with the Democrats,” he added. “It’s a Democrat machine; it should be a campaign contribution.” Because YouTube, Facebook, and Google suspended his accounts on their platforms, Trump said that it “hurts his ability to support fellow conservatives by campaigning for Republicans running in 2022. He also said it hurts his ability to lay the groundwork for a possible 2024 presidential bid,” Fox News reported.

‘I Got Impeached Twice, I Became Worse’: Trump (RT)

In a speech to fans in Texas, Donald Trump repeated claims of election fraud and tirades against “cancel culture.” He also uttered one phrase his opponents would likely agree with, saying he “became worse” after being impeached. Trump took the stage in Dallas, Texas on Sunday night to close out the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a yearly or twice-yearly gathering of politicians, activists and celebrities from the American right. The CPAC crowd is as friendly to Trump as crowds get, and the former president served them up his signature partisan jokes, rants and one-liners. He railed against President Joe Biden and the Democrats, whom he accused of “rigging” the 2020 election against him. The audience agreed, breaking into chants of “Trump won!”

He thundered against immigration, accusing Biden of turning the US/Mexico border into “the single greatest disaster in American history” and lambasted “big tech’s attack on free speech,” days after suing the social media platforms that banned him in January. All of these complaints and grievances are standard Trump fare, but the receptive crowd at CPAC gave him the opportunity to try out some new material. Turning on his former attorney general, Trump claimed that Bill Barr “became a different man” after House Democrats “viciously stated that they wanted to impeach him” last year. “I didn’t become different,” Trump quipped. “I got impeached twice. I became worse.” His opponents would likely agree with that statement, but “worse” to his supporters clearly meant “better,” as they broke out into applause and cheers.

Trump’s headline appearance, and the warm reception he received, served as a reminder that although he is out of power and absent from social media, he still sets the Republican Party’s agenda. His former vice president, Mike Pence, who voted to certify Biden’s electoral victory, did not appear at the event and was booed and heckled at a conservative conference in Florida several weeks ago. CPAC is considered an opportunity for potential Republican presidential candidates to audition in front of the conservative base, and Trump – who has dropped several hints recently at another run for the White House in 2024 – seemed to acknowledge this. “The Democrats want me out… and here I am. I could have a nice, beautiful life and here I am on a Sunday in Texas,” he said, to which the crowd chanted “Four more years! Four more years!”

    The initial core reason the Plandemic got off the ground was because of the fraudulent PCR ‘test’ conducted at 45 cycles.

    At 45 cycles it produces false positives in the mid-90% range, thus producing the flood of fake ‘cases’ that provided the rationale for ’emergency measures’ and emergency ‘vaccine’ approval.

    The asymptomatic head fake came after the PCR faux test roll out. It was a supporting actor/accomplice to this crime against humanity.

    The manipulation of the PCR cycles from 45 down to 27 allows you to dial in any number of ‘infections’ you want to show at any given moment.

    Perfect for fearmongering one moment then rapidly producing falling cases the next. See, we did it!!!

    The low infection rate from dialing down the PCR cycle threshold to the 20’s then can ‘prove’ that after you ‘vaccinate’ the infection rate falls, like a miracle!

    If you kick the PCR test out from under the Pathocrats play book, their whole case for the measures taken during Covid being legal dies a quick death, like a perfect head shot.

    The unreliability of PCR tests accuracy with stand up in court.

    Only trouble is finding a judge who isn’t corrupt and cowardly.

    madamski wrote, “My informed Aussie friends have been tellinbg me forever that Aus is run by an exceptionally numbskull breed of ignorant greedheads. I believe them. It shows.”

    As an antipodean denizen, I agree with this assessment. It’s becoming more obvious by the day. The greed, or maybe just the stupidity, is unbelievable. The Feds came up with a $550 a fortnight income supplement last year, but this ended a few months ago. Much financial and domestic distress, but the Feds simply refuse to do anything more. Apparently the PM said the other day that because people have not been spending much, then they have savings — and they can spend these savings and get by. He seems to be completely out of touch with reality. The Feds lay huge and heavy burdens upon our shoulders but refuse to do anything to lighten them.

    But the biggest problem in all of this is the popular idea that mass vaccinations will cure and solve everything. Our take-up rate is low, about 9 ot 10%, and the message everywhere is Vaccinate! Vaccinate! Vaccinate!

    Begins to sound a bit like a screaming Dalek, doesn’t it: “You Will Be Vaccinated!”

    I had a serious, Matrix-level deja vu event take place yesterday. It was a minor little incident and I won’t bore everyone with a description, but every single detail of it was identical to an event I had already experienced, including the people involved, the moth, the location, what was said, etc., etc.

    There are theories* that parallel realities exist in which different decisions made and actions taken formed alternate realities, each of which varies by some degree from the reality we’re “living in”.

    I’m beginning to wonder if, due to the nature of energy and mass events, the advent of the coronavirus early last year caused us to slip into a parallel reality. One in which locking down, quarantining healthy people, shoving swabs up into sinuses, killing people by refusing to provide medical treatment, forcing experimental vaccinations on everyone, and blind acceptance and even cheering on of totalitarian government actions … is the accepted norm.

    Some of us were jarred by the cognitive dissonance that resulted from the shift; others continued on with barely any notice.

    Just a passing thought.

    * the idea there are parallel realities is more realistic than the idea humans can, for example, live on mars

    My money is on weather becoming the Major Distraction. Probably a melange of out of control wildfires, shipping blockages caused by hurricane damage to ports and waterways, more power outage extremeness like Texas next winter.

    Notice the echo chamber effect in here recently remarked upon?

    When a majority of the populace believe a thing must be opposed and stand united to stop it… the thing has already reached its terminus. We revel in that growing sense of certainty that we understand what’s happening, that we know what the problem is, and this tends to blind us that the problem is already mostly spent by its own misdirection.

    Cycles move FAST now. We saw justified liberal backlash against gender bigotry. About the time it was visible to the majority and a buncha them jumped on that bandwagon, the battle was already won, and now the purple-haired justice warriors come in to pick the corpses for any goods they hold.

    By the time the people unite in a crusade, the cause opposed by the crusade is already finished. BUt like I said, cycles move FAST now. Watch conservative backlash quickly accrue into a nonsense brigade that makes last January’s D.C. “insurrection” look serious and thoughtful rather than the political field day picnic it really was.

    By the time conservative backlash has “taken matters into their own hands”, it may well be even more a caricature of itself than the current liberal backwash.

    So, what about the weather? You like the Yankees or the Mets this year? What are the odds a megahurricane slips into the Pacific over Baja and hammers LA’s shipping harbor?

    For those who feels that modern climate change focus ignores wild weather in the per-industrial past, here’s an offering:

    Great Flood of 1862

    However, I’ll note that the centuries preceding this saw the deforestation of most of Europe while the New World underwent massive ecological change due to European pathogens wiping out most aborigines and the man-shaped landscape they’d created with controlled burning, dams, etc. SO we’d already added significant greenhouse gases to the air, and… please pay attention, climate-change-rebuffers: the thing about climates is that yes, tyhey6’re HUGE compared to humanity bnut so is our economy, and you’ve seen how that climate reacts to seemingly modest stimulus to produce gargantuan effects. The larger the system, the more massively complex it usually is. The more massively complex a system is, the more vulnerable it is to a systempunkt. Jell-O is mightly resilient stuff but just *touch* it, and it WIGGLES.

    The climate is wiggling. It often does… which is why one doesn’t wish to exacerbate it. Politics needn’t apply to this discussion. Politics are reactionary and usually nonsense, inadequate incompetent clownery. Primary things like weather toss mere politics around like a strong man at a flea circus. It would be nifty if we stopped pocusing on how politicians are swindling us in the name of increased climate volatility, and instead fopcused on climate volatility, and did so not through the loens of Al Gore or his detractors, but plain windows like the sky above and the ground at our feet.

    The weather IS currently going nuts, period. That will have vast impacts even if it proves to “merely” be a natural hiccip of 100 or so years of wild weather. I am preparing our household for when the wind turns northward and brings all the smoke from ther Cali/Oregon border wildfires our way.

    from the Orlov shared by Dr.D (the “D” stands for D, I think):

    “You might think that they’d learn from each others’ mistakes, but then here is a simple rule for you to remember: the intelligence of a hierarchically organized group of people is inversely proportional to its size, and mighty military empires are so big, and consequently so dumb, that they never, ever learn anything.”

    Similar principle aplies to large corps run by men with more $ than functioning neurons. They aggrandize, think they can help rule the world if not singularly outright, experience a deslusion of grandeur similar to a 3-year old’s belief that a towel tied around their shoulders will let them really fly (I vividly remember that belief), and, as some wag recently remarked, lose 20-30 IQ points just by becoming billionaires.

    THe more money a person has, the stupider that person becomes, but their money — and usually an army of yes-persons — prevents them from experiencing the consequences of their idiocy until it runs rampant, and Bill Gates wakes up without a wife and wondering when she’ll start REALLY blackmailing him.

    Russel Brand’s latest interview re off-grid doomsday preppers revealed they are a HUGE range of political and idealogical groups and individuals from vegan eco organic utopianists to feral, right wing gun-toters. They are aligned in their desire to TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. A political act that trumps all other concerns and allows a massive degree of harmony in their actions.

    Therefore a win is undermining and discrediting everything. Comey, Mueller, Wray, and all WANT this to happen as it serves the larger end: a post-law, post-FBI Staasi, a theocracy run by their religious cult.

    The Amerikan religious cult power, looting & hedonism.

    Back when I was a real legal reporter, surrounded by fake B$ cult memba reporters in one of the most important/critical pressrooms in the universe, I watched the religious cult each & everyday for 20+ years, & the evil that was swept under the rug by sociopaths in robed fake B$ cult membas.

    This was after I was rudely awakened with a dark pall the morning the USGOV pumped mostly peaceful CS gas into the Branch Davidian compound & the extrajudicial execution of 82 men, women & children…

    The country never looked the same after that, & I became aware of the truth of the U$ .mil/banking Empire.

    Anyone that doesn’t know the Amerikan aristocracy hasn’t accomplished goal-after-goal towards creating a breakaway civilization that is more powerful than any in history is either ignorant, self-deluded or complicit.

    Here’s a few tidbits about the 4th branch:

    PROJECT MKIULTRA, THE CIA’S PROGRAM OF RESEARCH IN BEHAVIORAL MODIFICATION ~ NINETY-FIFTH CONGRESS

    https://www.intelligence.senate.gov/sites/default/files/hearings/95mkultra.pdf

    IS THE CIA’S REFUSAL TO COOPERATE WITH CONGRESSIONAL INQUIRIES A THREAT TO EFFECTIVE OVERSIGHT OF THE OPERATIONS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT? ~ 107th Congress

    https://www.congress.gov/event/107th-congress/house-event/LC16173/text?s=1&r=18345

    Those are the just a warmup to all the #WINNING that the 4th branch has accomplished non-stop on behalf of their masters, the Amerikan aristocracy…

    Oh, the Central Stupidity Agency’s HQ, which when completed in 1991 was the most expensive USGOV building ever built, which led to congressional inquiries regarding funding since the USCON hardly gave them a dime (Thanks Grand Wizard Bush for all the black budget goodies!).

    Wasn’t too long after that the next most expensive USGOV building was opened for cult ops, the SDNY courthouse part deux in ol’ Gotham…

    We lost the American Republic to the cult of power, looting & hedonism a long, LONG time ago, & it appears many will be culled as to not be a bother soon ~ Too bad, so sad that the patriot movement back in the 90s wasn’t taken seriously, & that Ross Perot was taken out to the woodshed (threats against his children), the Republic had a chance for about 5 minutes.

    Tidbit about the cult: The fraud st. looting operations are notorious for prostitute lunches, and most seasoned Gotham reporters know & ignore this fact, & some like Greenberg are notorious for trannies on the menu ~ No surprise that the LGBTQ cult ops are so well funded 😉

    @oxymoron I’ll give that Brand interview a listen. It’s a good observation – TAKING CARE OF THEMSELVES (and family/tribe) cuts through ideological differences and gives common cause between quinoa eaters and don’t tread on me-ers.

    A blogger I read – Granola Shotgun – is one of the best preppers I can think of. He’s integrated prepping right into his daily lifestyle – actually makes it look fun, simple, and more interesting than my life 😀 He has layers of preps, different tactics for different scenarios and durations. I’ve patterned some of my preps after his.

    He pointed out that some of his prepper skills he learned from Mormons – as a gay man he doesn’t have a lot of commonality there, but he pointed out that the Mormons are skilled preppers and delightfully happy to share their knowledge!

    Looks like the 6 defendants arrested for plotting to kidnap Michigan’s nutcase governor were aided by 12 FBI informants! Yeah outnumbered 2 to 1! What a joke! If I was on any jury I would refuse to convict anyone, except the FBI! They are the real criminals!

    (My Father once delayed a murder jury verdict by 2 days to prevent a pompous judge from getting an early start Friday morning to go weekend fishing!) (No love lost between engineers and lawyers!)

    It seems the Fulton County, Georgia vote count of mail-in-ballots only had a greater than 60% error rate! That is what you get from teaching dumbed down math! Like double or triple counting!

    So everybody in France needs to be vaccinated before they are allowed to do anything useful like support the economy! The US is watching closely to see if this works! After all the Democrats are planning on making life for the unvaccinated difficult and hard.

    I laughed when a judge said the California’s governor can’t call himself a Democrat in the upcoming re-call election! Newsom sure has been going around throwing billions at California voters thanks to free taxpayer money from D.C.

    In Texas they always do things big! Like state Democrats flying on a private jet to DC, shutting down the state house! Now the governor is planning to arrest them when they ever return! Maybe they won’t return! Maybe we end up with a Texas long horn stand-off! Get your BBQ ready!

    New evidence that the lockdown “cure’ may be worse than the disease.

    A study of excess mortality in Greece during the first 9 months of the epidemic shows that the deaths from Covid-19 were less than the number of non-Covid excess deaths. This is “most probably related” to the underutilization of healthcare services due to suspension of outpatient care, cancelation of elective surgeries, etc.

    3,778 excess non-Covid-19 deaths
    vs.
    2,406 deaths from Covid-19 (per Worldometer)

    Results

    Utilization rates of all public healthcare services during the first nine months of the epidemic dropped significantly compared to the average utilization rates of the 2017-19 control period… This underutilization of essential public services – mainly due to supply restrictions such as suspension of outpatient care and cancelation of elective surgeries – is most probably related to the 3,778 excess non-COVID-19 deaths (representing 62% of all-cause excess deaths) that have been reported during the first 9 months of the epidemic in the country.

    Conclusions

    Greece’s healthcare system, deeply wounded by the 2008-18 recession and austerity, was ill resourced to cope with the challenge of the COVID-19 epidemic. Early and prolonged lockdowns have kept COVID-19 infections and deaths at relative low levels. However, this “success” seems to have been accomplished at the expense of non-COVID-19 patients.
