Covid Vaccines Will Keep You From Acquiring Full Immunity (Berenson)

Don’t take it from me, I don’t even get to tweet anymore. Take it from a little place I call the British government. Which admitted today, in its newest vaccine surveillance report, that: “N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who acquire infection following two doses of vaccination.” (Page 23) What’s this mean? Several things, all bad. We know the vaccines do not stop infection or transmission of the virus (in fact, the report shows elsewhere that vaccinated adults are now being infected at much HIGHER rates than the unvaccinated). What the British are saying is they are now finding the vaccine interferes with your body’s innate ability after infection to produce antibodies against not just the spike protein but other pieces of the virus.


Specifically, vaccinated people don’t seem to be producing antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein, the shell of the virus, which are a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people. This means vaccinated people will be far more vulnerable to mutations in the spike protein EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN INFECTED AND RECOVERED ONCE (or more than once, probably). It also means the virus is likely to select for mutations that go in exactly that direction, because those will essentially give it an enormous vulnerable population to infect. And it probably is still more evidence the vaccines may interfere with the development of robust long-term immunity post-infection. Aside from that, everything is fine.

“This is the beginning of a civil war. There are going to be states seceding from the Union, and they are going to push for it..”

Vax Fight is On and Not Stopping – Gerald Celente (USAW)

Gerald Celente, a renowned trends researcher, is back this time to talk about the unrelenting full blown “Vax Wars” he predicted many months ago. Many people are being told “no vax, no job,” and now it’s really heating up. Celente explains, “The fight is on. The people that are not going to get it are not going to get it. They’re done. The fight is on. From the very beginning, I said about the ‘Covid War,’ it’s going to be anti-vax, anti-establishment, anti-immigration parties forming. This is the beginning of a new populous movement like we have never seen before. It is just the beginning. Remember, ‘it does not take a majority to prevail, but an irate tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the hearts and minds of men,’ said Samuel Adams. . . .

‘Vax Wars,’ this is bigger than the Vax Wars. This is a war about freedom, and it’s going to rage around the world. Look what happened in Italy last week. Looks what’s going on in France. In the United States, it’s going to happen as well. This is the beginning of a civil war. There are going to be states seceding from the Union, and they are going to push for it. What they are doing is totally unconstitutional, un-American and un-Godly.” (as in God the Father.) All of the unions that usually support Democrats are up in arms about the coerced vax mandates. Is the DNC going to lose a huge segment of its base? Celente says, “Yes, they are. They are not the Democrat Party. They are not the Republican Party. It’s a crime syndicate. These are criminals. They are murderers and thieves. How much more proof does anybody need. . . .

Yes, the unions are going to run from the Democrat Party. There are going to be new forming parties. I say by their deeds you shall know them. Hey, you are too big to fail. The banksters, the Federal Reserve pumping in $29 trillion (in 2008 and 2009 to bail out their buddies.) . . . .They are murderers and thieves, and we are going to have a new political movement. You know what’s going to have to be behind this movement? Self-sustainability, it has to be a self-sustaining U.S. without supply chain backups. Why are we buying all that crap from China? . . . Why aren’t we making things in the United States? Because lowlife Democrat and Republican pieces of crap sold us out to get the products made overseas so they could mark up the prices when they brought them back.”

On the economic front, Celente says the trend is inflation and a coming collapse. What going to set that off? Celente says, “When they raise interest rates, this thing goes down — end of story. If they can’t put that monetary methadone out there for the money junkies for free anymore, this thing goes down. Inflation is going to make them raise rates. It’s going to make them start tapering. This is not a capitalist society, it’s fascist. They are buying $120 billion a month of government and corporate bonds. They are buying corporate bonds? Oh yeah, and junk bonds too. . . . That is a merger of state and corporate powers. That’s what Mussolini called fascism.” Celente says this is going to end badly, and he’s talking about “the greatest financial crash in history.” The little guy, meaning “We the People,” should prepare, and time to do that is running short. Celente says, “Prepare for the worst. If the worst doesn’t happen and you are prepared, you lose nothing. If the worst happens and you are not prepared, be prepared to lose everything.

“Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.”

All of a sudden, lying to Congress is no longer a serious offence.

NIH Changes Story, Confirms It Funded Wuhan Gain-of-Function Experiment (JTN)

Two weeks after National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins announced his retirement, his agency has complicated congressional testimony by Collins and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci about alleged gain-of-function virus research sponsored by the U.S. Both officials have denied approving grants for such research through the EcoHealth Alliance and Wuhan Institute of Virology, but a letter Wednesday from NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence Tabak to House Oversight Committee ranking Republican James Comer describes an unforeseen experimental result that calls the denials into question.

The letter shows that “NIH — and specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak — lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public,” Richard Ebright, lab director at Rutgers University’s Waskman Institute of Microbiology, tweeted Wednesday night when sharing the letter. “Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.” The final progress report submitted by EcoHealth in August described a “limited experiment” in which a modified bat coronavirus made mice “sicker” than than original virus, Tabak told Comer. “As sometimes occurs in science, this was an unexpected result of the research, as opposed to something that the researchers set out to do.”

NIH determined the proposed research didn’t meet the standard for “enhanced pathogens of pandemic potential” because it wasn’t shown these bat coronaviruses could infect humans. But “out of an abundance of caution” it required EcoHealth to “immediately” report “a one log increase in growth” if it happened, which would trigger a secondary review of the research by NIH. EcoHealth didn’t do that, Tabak wrote, and it now has five days to turn over “any and all unpublished data” from the research to NIH. The letter repeatedly emphasizes the viruses studied under the EcoHealth grant and “subaward” to the Wuhan lab “could not have become SARS-CoV-2” because the “sequences of the viruses are genetically very distinct.”

How much do Pfizer, Moderna pay him?

Dr. Anthony Fauci Received Big Pay Increase To Prevent Pandemics (F.)

In a January article published at Forbes, our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com found that Dr. Anthony Fauci was the highest paid federal employee, earning $417,608 (2019). Dr. Fauci is still the top-paid federal employee earning $434,312 in 2020. Fauci is the Director of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and current Chief Medical Advisor to the President. Fauci out-earned the U.S. president ($400,000); four-star generals in the military ($282,000); and roughly 4.3 million other federal employees. Now, new documents released via our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from the NIH tell us a lot more. Dr. Fauci received a big pay hike for his biodefense research activities. In other words, Fauci was paid to prevent future pandemics.


The documents released to our non-profit organization OpenTheBooks.com reveal that Dr. Fauci was approved for a “permanent pay adjustment” in excess of his regular salary in December 2004, during the George W. Bush Administration. From 2004 through 2007, Fauci received a 68-percent pay increase from $200,000- to $335,000-a year. This award was permanent and carried forward through 2020. Fauci’s permanent pay raise was to “appropriately compensate him for the level of responsibility… especially as it relates to his work on biodefense research activities.” However, critics say that Fauci was funding research that was actually creating pandemic pathogens in labs that, if leaked or if fell into the wrong hands, might create the very human pandemic they were trying to prevent.

Abusing the success of ivermectin to jab more people.

India Administers A Billion Covid Jabs (F24)

According to the government, around three-quarters of adults in the country of 1.3 billion people have had one shot and around 30 percent are fully vaccinated. However, hundreds of millions of Indians under 18 — who make up some 40 percent of the population — have not had a single shot. India suffered a huge spike in cases in April and May, reporting more than 400,000 infections and 4,000 deaths per day, with many hospitals unable to cope and crematoriums overwhelmed. Cases have since fallen sharply, with fewer than 20,000 infections per day, and most activity has returned to normal. Mumbai, one of India’s myriad teeming cities, recently reported zero deaths in a day for the first time since the pandemic began.

The government was reportedly set to celebrate the milestone with Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanking health workers, special announcements at railway stations and airports and monuments lit up in the national colours. Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya tweeted: “Congratulations India! This is the result of the visionary PM Modi’s able leadership.” Only China has administered more doses — the Chinese government says it has given more than 2.3 billion shots. India began vaccinations in January and after a slow start, it is now administering around eight million jabs per day. “During the first wave, I remember hearing people talking about whether coronavirus was real or not,” said Reham Ali, a 49-year-old taxi driver in New Delhi who said he has had one shot. “Now, people know that it is and there is less hesitancy. The second wave was an eye-opener.”

Exports of vaccines — halted earlier this year — have tentatively resumed, with officials saying the “pharmacy of the world” will be back in full swing again in 2022 Most restrictions on activity have been lifted, with crowds celebrating India’s main religious festival season — an important time for the battered economy — for the first time in two years. This has sparked concerns about a new wave of infections and a renewed push by the government to push people to get their second shots. Media reports last week said an expert panel of India’s drug regulator recommended the use of the homegrown Covaxin — one of seven Covid-19 vaccines approved in India — for under-18s. “I think it is unlikely that we will see a third wave that in any way resembles the second wave,” said Dr Gangandeep Kang, from the Christian Medical College, Vellore.

Over 300,000 Unvaxxed Australia Supermarket Workers To Lose Their Jobs (Sky)

More than 300,000 workers across Australia’s largest supermarket chains have been warned they will lose their jobs without a valid reason for not getting vaccinated. Woolworths employees in New South Wales, the ACT, the Northern Territory, Victoria and Western Australia have until January 31 next year to get vaccinated with a March 31 deadline set for workers in the remaining states. “If they don’t have a valid reason, we will engage with them, make sure they get the best possible advice and availability to vaccines,” Woolworths CEO Brad Banducci said. “But if they don’t have a valid religious or medical exemption, their employment at Woolworths will be terminated.”

“..to protest staff shortages and compulsory coronavirus vaccinations..”

The two are closely related.

Striking Hospital Staff Hold Protest In Athens (K.)

Hundreds of state hospital workers marched Thursday through central Athens as part of a 24-hour strike to protest staff shortages and compulsory coronavirus vaccinations. About 500 protesters demonstrated in the center of the capital, heading past parliament toward the health ministry chanting slogans and holding up banners. Unions representing the doctors, nurses and other medical staff are protesting government plans they say exacerbate staffing shortages and lead to long working hours while undermining workers’ rights. Medical workers are also seeking to be included in the list of professions receiving extra hazard pay for “heavy and unhealthy” work. The unions have also objected to the suspension of unvaccinated health care workers, saying this only leads to further staff shortages.


Faced with rising infections and reluctance by many to get vaccinated, the government has introduced a series of incentives and penalties to encourage Greeks to get their anti-Covid-19 shots. Vaccinations have been made mandatory for health care workers and those working in care homes for the elderly, with those who refuse being suspended from work. Just over 60% of the country’s population of around 11 million people are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. The unions say that while they support vaccinations, individual staff members should have the right to choose. Greece has seen a spike in coronavirus infections this summer, and new daily cases stand at around 3,000. On Wednesday, the country saw 3,279 new cases and 38 new deaths, bringing the total confirmed cases to over 704,000 and the total death toll to nearly 15,500 in the country of nearly 11 million.

What was normal all through our lives is now revolutionary.

DeSantis Calls Special Session To Ban Covid-19 Vaccine Mandates (UPI)

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday called a special session of the Florida Legislature to pass legislation banning COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Speaking from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Hangar, he announced the special session would take place in November. He called for lawmakers to provide protections for workers whose employment is threatened by vaccine mandates. “Your right to earn a living should not be contingent upon COVID shots,” DeSantis said. “When the vaccines first came out, we worked very hard to provide it, particularly to our elderly, but we said from day one: We will make it available for all, but we will mandate it for no one because ultimately we want individuals to make the determinations about what is right for them.

“I want a state in which people are able to maintain their livelihoods, earn a living, and provide for their families. And if the federal government or big corporations are hurting people, then we have a responsibility to step up and lead.” DeSantis was joined in the press conference by Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez, Attorney General Ashley Moody and Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo. “The governor has made it clear: Florida will not stand by and allow hard working citizens to be subjected to unemployment because they are being forced to show vaccine documentation, especially those who have remained on the front lines of COVID-19 for nearly two years now,” Ladapo said. “The Department of Health will continue to protect Floridians through multi-faceted and data-driven solutions, not overreach.”

In addition to banning mandates, DeSantis called for employers to be held accountable if an employee becomes sick or injured from taking a mandatory vaccine. Ahead of the press conferences, members of DeSantis’ staff handed out signs to attendees featuring an alligator on a yellow background reading “Don’t Tread on Florida.”

“The endorphin-producing fantasies on which they fed for years [..] were way too viscerally arousing for them to simply forget that none of it happened.”

The Real Reasons for the Congressional 1/6 Committee (Greenwald)

Underlying so much of the anger and resentment surrounding 1/6 is the complete dissonance between the narrative fed to the citizenry by Democrats and their media allies on the one hand, and the legal realities on the other. It must be infuriating and baffling to a large sector of the population to have been convinced that what happened on January 6 was an unprecedentedly dangerous insurrection perpetrated by an organized group of seditious traitors who had plotted to kidnap and murder elected officials, only for the Biden DOJ to have charged exactly nobody with any criminal charges remotely suggesting any of those melodramatic claims.

This was the same frustration and confusion that beset a large portion of liberal America when they were led to believe for years that Robert Mueller was coming to arrest all of their political enemies for treason and criminal conspiracy with Russia, only for the FBI Superman to close his investigation without charging a single American with criminal conspiracy with Russia and then issuing a report admitting that he could not find evidence to establish any such crime. How to keep the flock loyal when the doomsday prophecies continue to be unfulfilled, as the World-Ending Date comes and goes without so much as a bang, let alone an explosion?

Adam Schiff’s new book — which essentially claims that Mueller is senile and was suffering from pitiful dementia — is obviously intended to provide some solace or at least a framework of understanding for disappointed liberals to keep the faith, but deep down, they know what they were expecting. The endorphin-producing fantasies on which they fed for years — of Trump and Trump, Jr. and Jared and Bannon and Ivanka being frog-marched out of the White House by armed, strapping FBI agents — were way too viscerally arousing for them to simply forget that none of it happened.

A repeat of this disorientation and disillusionment when it comes to 1/6 could be quite dangerous for Democrats. It could be devastating to the media outlets which survive on serving the Democrats’ messaging and feeding dramatic conspiracy theories to the beleaguered liberal flock. In the days and weeks following 1/6, liberals really thought that dozens of members of Congress — from Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene — would be not just expelled from Congress but summarily imprisoned as traitors by a newly righteous Justice Department. They were led to believe that, with Bill Barr out of the way, Trump and his mafia family would finally pay for their crimes.

“Jen Psaki, sneering avatar of an aristocracy that regards working Americans as less than dirt.”

Jen Psaki Hates You (Klavan)

Let us now praise Jennifer Rene Psaki—English major, sorority girl, mother of two. Let us praise her seemingly endless supply of monochrome crew-neck blouses and pencil skirts, the way she peels her mask off after striding to the lectern. Jen Psaki has been briefed by her 11 staffers; she has had her coffee (and her bagel, if it’s Wednesday); she is freshly armed with the latest talking points and she is not going to take any of your guff today. Jen communicates just how on top of things she is by nodding ceaselessly throughout every question, interjecting an “uh-huh” or a “yep” to show she has not been caught off guard since the last clause of the reporter’s sentence. This is a patented bobblehead technique she perfected as a commentator at CNN in between the Obama and Biden Administrations.

What she is saying or listening to is less important than what she is communicating with her demeanor at all times: that she is serious, that she is informed, that she is the adult in the room. We have all met someone who behaves like this: someone who has done the homework and wants you to know it. Someone whose politeness is so aggressive that it can only be read as a kind of challenge. Jen Psaki dares you to find her off-putting. Why would you? She is smiling. She even had a joke written down that she made at the appropriate juncture. See? It says “laughing time” right here in the schedule from 5:01 to 5:03 PM. Then laughing time is over, and it is time for the lies and the jabs and the polite little smirks. Jen Psaki is frankly disappointed that you would stoop so low as to question Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s right to paternity leave during a supply chain “crisis.”

It’s not really a crisis, anyway: “people have more money, expendable resources, more people are working than they were a year ago.” The economy is getting built back better, says Jen, and our ports runneth over. What are you, some kind of Peloton slut who can’t wait five extra months for your new treadmill? This is what Trump’s critics meant when they said we needed to restore “civility” to the White House: they meant we need the right kind of disdain for the right kinds of people, expressed in the right kinds of ways. Gone are the mean tweets, the off-color jokes, the rough pugilism. Now instead we have Jen Psaki, sneering avatar of an aristocracy that regards working Americans as less than dirt. People are straining to put food on the table and gas in their cars; they increasingly fail to see the point in going to work at all. Psaki’s response is that of the anointed class she represents: shut up and take it.

“This year alone, after the fall of the government of Afghanistan, we saw how crucial encryption is in keeping ordinary people safe.”

Edward Snowden: ‘If You Weaken Encryption, People Will Die’ (TNW)

Our online privacy faces growing threats. Governments around the world are calling for encryption backdoors that would enable access to personal information. They argue that encryption protects criminals. But it also protects activists, dissidents, persecuted groups, and ordinary citizens. Edward Snowden is among the most prominent beneficiaries. The whistleblower’s first messages to journalists were made with encryption. They resulted in revelations that millions of Americans had been under illegal mass surveillance. “If you weaken encryption, people will die,” said Snowden in a statement. “This year alone, after the fall of the government of Afghanistan, we saw how crucial encryption is in keeping ordinary people safe.” Snowden has joined the Global Encryption Coalition to launch a campaign to protect encryption.

The group of civil society organizations and tech firms warns that undermining encryption will leave people more vulnerable to crime and surveillance. “I have seen first-hand how governments can abuse the power they have to access the personal data of innocent people in the name of national security,” said Snowden. “Weakening encryption would be a colossal mistake that could put thousands of lives at risk.” End-to-end encryption would make it harder to implement spy programs like the one Snowden exposed — which may be one reason why governments want to circumvent it. It would not be the first time that lawmakers have undermined our privacy in the name of fighting terrorism. Politicians assert — with justification — that criminal gangs and paedophiles use encryption.

But so do racial justice protestors to avoid police surveillance, LBTQ+ people in countries where their sexual orientation is criminalized, and even some of the politicians who have called for Snowden to be put in jail. Reporters also rely on encryption to protect their sources. “Now more than ever, journalists are facing digital threats to their work and safety,” said Lisa Dittmer, advocacy officer for Internet Freedom, Reporters Without Borders. “Encryption plays a critical role in protecting journalists and their sources, enabling them to share information even in the most dangerous environments. Yet as the need for encryption grows, so do the efforts to weaken it. Governments from India to Australia are calling for tech companies to build backdoors into their end-to-end encrypted systems.

In the UK, new regulation could make service providers criminally liable for the acts of users if law enforcement can’t access their encrypted data. Their proposals, however, could actually make people more vulnerable. Any encryption backdoor may be a target for criminals. The information they access could threaten both national security and individual privacy. “Encryption makes us all safer,” said Snowden. “From families protecting photographs of their kids, to personal healthcare information, encryption keeps our private information private.” We all have private conversations that we don’t want overheard. Encryption backdoors would give malicious actors another way to access them.

“Nothing in this case is proceeding as it should do.”

Assange to Get Same Judge Who Sided with US on Appeal (Lauria)

Lord Justice Timothy Holroyde, the High Court judge who reversed an earlier court order to bar the U.S. from appealing Julian Assange’s medical issues, will preside over the substantive U.S. appeal hearing at the High Court next week. In January, lower court Judge Vanessa Baraitser refused the U.S. request to extradite the WikiLeaks publisher because of his high risk of suicide and the conditions of U.S. prisons. The U.S. applied to appeal that decision, which was granted by the High Court in July. The court allowed three of five grounds of appeal, excluding the matter of Assange’s health. The U.S. challenged that ruling and in an Aug. 11 High Court hearing, Holroyde overturned the earlier court decision, siding with the U.S. argument that Baraitser’s finding on Assange’s health could be appealed.

That will be the central argument in the two-day hearing beginning next Wednesday at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. The U.S. says Assange is not too ill to be extradited and has accused him of being a malingerer. Joining Holroyde on the High Court bench will be Dame Judith Farbey, who remained silent during the Aug. 11 hearing. It is highly unusual for a judge who has already ruled in favor of one party to continue on the bench, according to Consortium News legal analyst Alexander Mercouris. In most cases, fresh judges would be brought in who have had no part in earlier rulings for either side.

After the Aug. 11 hearing, Mercouris said Holroyde’s “comments made it clear” that he would not be part of the appeal panel. “If he does turn up on the panel then that would be an extremely serious development,” he said, adding that it would be “open to legal challenge if he did.” It is not known at this time whether Assange’s lawyers will challenge Holroyde’s appointment to the case. After learning Holroyde would indeed oversee the hearing next week, Mercouris said it was “extremely disturbing news” and “very worrying. Nothing in this case is proceeding as it should do.”

    The CIA’s Appalling Human Experiments With Mind Control – MK-Ultra (aka We have to keep our fun impenetrably secret next time):

    https://www.history.com/mkultra-operation-midnight-climax-cia-lsd-experiments

    Dulles had just become the first civilian director of an agency growing more powerful by the day, and the speech provided an early glimpse into his priorities for the CIA. “In the past few years we have become accustomed to hearing much about the battle for men’s minds–the war of ideologies,” he told the attendees. “I wonder, however, whether we clearly perceive the magnitude of the problem, whether we realize how sinister the battle for men’s minds has become in Soviet hands,” he continued. “We might call it, in its new form, ‘brain warfare.’”

    He expressed fears and uncertainty–were they using chemical agents? Hypnosis? Something else entirely? “We in the West,” the CIA Director conceded, “are somewhat handicapped in brain warfare.” This sort of non-consensual experiment, even on one’s enemies, was antithetical to American values, Dulles insisted, as well as antithetical to what should be human values.

    Three days after his speech decrying Soviet tactics, Dulles approved the beginning of MK-Ultra, a top-secret CIA program for “covert use of biological and chemical materials.” “American values” made for good rhetoric, but Dulles had far grander plans for the agency’s Cold War agenda.

    MK-Ultra’s “mind control” experiments generally centered around behavior modification via electro-shock therapy, hypnosis, polygraphs, radiation, and a variety of drugs, toxins, and chemicals. These experiments relied on a range of test subjects: some who freely volunteered, some who volunteered under coercion, and some who had absolutely no idea they were involved in a sweeping defense research program. From mentally-impaired boys at a state school, to American soldiers, to “sexual psychopaths” at a state hospital, MK-Ultra’s programs often preyed on the most vulnerable members of society.

    Whitey Bulger claimed he had been injected with LSD. Lysergic acid diethylamide, or acid, had become one of the CIA’s key interests for its “brain warfare” program, as the agency theorized it could be useful in interrogations.

    With the advent of MK-Ultra, the government’s interest in LSD shifted from a defensive to an offensive orientation. Agency officials noted that LSD could be potentially useful in “[gaining] control of bodies whether they were willing or not.

    The CIA remained keenly aware of how the public would react to any discovery of MK-Ultra; even if they believed these programs to be essential to national security, they must remain a tightly guarded secret. How would the CIA possibly explain dosing unassuming Americans with LSD?

    But perhaps unsurprisingly, much of White’s actions were driven by pure voyeurism: “I toiled wholeheartedly in the vineyards because it was fun, fun, fun,” White later said. “Where else could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill, cheat, steal, rape, and pillage with the sanction and blessing of the All-Highest?

    More at link, but of course over the following 60+ years there is MUCH more, probably never to be disclosed.

    “WaPo Editorial Board Calls For US Military Invasion Of Haiti”

    …And everywhere else on earth. Surely the next-richest African country, or Black country, needs to be turned into a new open slave market. Obama and Biden can have photo ops on the ground! Promos for the next election! “Not only did we incarcerate the most black Americans in history – mostly for non-violent drug offenses, illegal under the Constitution, but we actually re-introduced Black slavery to the world. Vote Democrat today. The party of Jackson.”

    Well, if they did invade, they could bring with them the $1B in relief the Clinton foundation (illegally) raised and never delivered to them. You know, like the Post Office! Unvaccinated, just like the White House and all the immigrants salted nationwide.

    That was always the way. As I said, referring to the 1st Federal laws, asking them to be enforced, is an act of rebellion and terrorism according to the FBI. Since the 90s. In fact, being a parent is now an act of terrorism. Been 30 years? 50? Did anyone say this when Carter put in totally illegal Department of Education (test scores dropping every day since), or when they decided they had legal authority over the whole economy? Right down to who pays rent? When drugs – identical to alcohol – were suddenly illegal without having to pass the Amendment we had to pass only a few years before? When the same happened with HMOs Health Care? We were all cranks to tell you these obvious things. Things like “Governments always lie. The job of reporters is to figure out how.” They kill everything they touch for their own personal gain. The gain of the UniParty.

    ““The endorphin-producing fantasies on which they fed for years [..] were way too viscerally arousing for them to simply forget that none of it happened.” The Real Reasons for the Congressional 1/6 Committee (Greenwald)

    Governments lie. Every word.

    However, Greenwald is wrong. Clearly they can keep lying to their base and making things up and they’ll keep loving it forever. There is never any end to RussiaRussiaRussia. Maher just used it again this week. Same with Mr. 17, “Trust the Plan”, “We’re just about to arrest Hillary” …in August 2017. Probably 100,000 acts of treason to China on her one server alone. Still waiting.

    “Governments around the world are calling for encryption backdoors”

    …Then it’s not encryption. Next question? No, but then we’ll all just download open-source ware and use that instead. You’re going to stop me from texting code? How, exactly? How do you plan to do that?

    The real problem was COLLECTING DATA AT ALL. The act of writing down F-Stan’s citizens preferences alone opens them up to targeting, just as we all are targeted every day. And censored. And purged.

    So…Congressional testimony today, asked Garland, “Hey bucko: was anybody charged with insurrection? No? Hey, when the Capitol Police waved all the protesters in and two guys broke windows right in front of those policemen, were they arrested? …Nevermind, that’s not my question. Were those two guys who broke the windows to encourage riots and misbehavior working for Law enforcement services?”

    Garland: “I cannot comment, this is an ongoing police investigation…”

    Oh and PS, AZ Senate has logs of Maricopa with full authority over the computer logs, and erased them all. The method was clever though: they reduced the log size, then regularly ran spurious scripts that overwrote the logs because they were out of space and saved the more-recent events. Don’t care: it was all illegal. They were required to keep events, required to snapshot, and lied about their control and passwords over the systems. Constantly. It’s super-easy, ask our resident Tech person: The minute the election ends, you snapshot all the systems. At minimum. Preferably you padlock them all so no one can touch them until next year, when the subpoena time expires. (27 months?)

    No one is arrested.

    As said yesterday, the plan is to demoralize you, NOT that you actually might believe their non-stop transparent lies. So “psychological warfare”? Yes, it’s “Terrorism”. They’re the terrorists. The Government, like cancer, is now attacking the body of the people. There was a document about this, a covenant, that began, “after a long train of abuses” “to secure our rights, Governments are instituted among Men…”

    “All Career Advice for Women Is a Form of Gaslighting: It’s the society we operate in that needs fixing, not how we ask for money, the tone of our voices, or our outfits.”

    So if women write for women, it’s the Patriarchy. “The world needs to change for me.” Yes, the constant drone of the chronically mentally ill, who are all reporters.

    This is similar to the Global Warming Science. If it’s men, it’s the Patriarchy. If it’s women, it’s the Patriarchy. If they encourage staying home it’s the Patriarchy. If they support choice, it’s the Patriarchy. If they support career, it’s the Patriarchy. All actions, pro, con, hot, cold, all events, all non-events, all prove the Patriarchy. The Science is settled! The other part is, these are the articles universally promoted, in this case the supposedly “random” articles on Firefox. 99 – 44/100%’s Woke. Most blatantly mentally ill.

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, “Let’s Go Brandon” is #1 on the charts, and/although banned by China and China’s minions. How can this be with Joe being the most popular President in world history, and owns 100% of Government, Courts, Colleges, Corporations, Media? Hmm, it’s almost like something’s fishy here. Maybe the Centerales are giving orders but have no control?

    Poet: Yeah, I remember the panic, like the “Satanic Panic” back when that anyone could be taken away for a few days and be “brainwashed”, “Telephon”, and their personality erased? To support the “Boys from Brazil”?

    Well, it wasn’t like that, the reality is in the details. Maybe put out there as a straw man to be to exaggerated and false? Yet the “Borne Identity” remains somewhere in “Blackburn” shifting from place to place in the $40Trillion untracked “missing” Pentagon budgets?

    No Congressional oversight. = No Democracy. Power of the purse is the power of the people. Print money = no power of the people. Ending US$ = returned sovereignty.

    Or recognize this: we’re getting post-nation state, whether wanted or undermined. So when “devolution” happens, in the U.S. with Federales being ignored, losing all (moral) authority, with Germany re-appearing, “devolving” the EU, what happens to their “national” currencies? That’s right: boom. If no “national” governments, or lacking half the power of before, their “Fiat” national currencies take an equal hit. So we would move to Facebook’s, Apple’s “Corporate Currencies”. Sachs and Morgan’s XRP “Corporate Currencies”. Pseudo-bank, cartel “Corporate Currencies” like an SDR or Fed coin.

    …Or would have happened, if they hadn’t released the digital currency Bitcoin…and all it’s siblings…into the wild back in ’08. Now the non-government currency is gold, silver, magnesium, nickel, oil … and Bitcoin. It’s important to have it. What happens when your central government de-centralizes again? What happens to your Pound, Euro?

    Jen mocked the reporter when he suggested the current shipping crisis (yes, a crisis-because that is what it is) was slowing down the arrival of home exercise equipment. Tsk, tsk. She said. Because die at home- you people don’t belong to our people.

    Application of a SARS vaccine is perhaps best limited to a minimal number of targeted individuals who can be monitored, as some vaccinated persons might, if infected by SARS coronavirus, become asymptomatic excretors of virus, thereby posing a risk to non-vaccinated people.

    The closing paragraph of the study I linked above says this about the drawbacks of basing a SARS vaccine on the S protein (spike) instead of the N protein (nucleocapsid):

    If SARS coronavirus were to re-emerge in humans, its S1 protein might not be the same as that of the 2002/2003 outbreak. Research with IBV has indicated that differences of only 5% of S1 protein amino acid can reduce cross-protection. Consequently, S1 differences among SARS coronavirus isolates must not be viewed complacently. The finding that the IBV N protein plays a beneficial role in immunity suggests that the SARS virus N protein should not be overlooked in a SARS vaccine development programme.

    It is clear Western governments simply do not know what they are doing and that the global aristocracy cares not a whit for the lower classes.

    The supply and worker shortages will not go away until workplaces and schools are safe. The mRNA gene therapy jabs cause heart inflammation in young males, efficacy fades requiring a 6-month booster shot, and transmission of the virus is the same for the fully vaccinated and the unvaccinated. The vaccine mandates and passports are pointless. Firing workers serves no purpose. This all is making the crisis much worse. It is so bad, it must be intentional to loot the last wealth still left in North America and Europe.

    There will be no herd immunity to the SARS2 coronavirus. Right now, the seroprevalence positive to the virus is estimated at 89.6% in the USA. The moving average of weekly deaths last week was 1,399 Americans — still higher than the second peak in the summer of 2020 before the vaccine campaign. The excess deaths are real. Iran has reported that 11 provinces reaching close to or higher than 100% attack rates. Repeat infections from new variants is the likely reason.

    Nothing the US government is doing is having any effect. The virus and luck rule. The only thing that works is isolation. Quit going to school. Stop working with others. But this is near impossible in today’s money run world. Masking and social distancing reduces risk but going out in public is still Russian Roulette. Plan A (for-profit mRNA vaccines) is not working and will never control the pandemic. At best, they may reduce the risk of severe illness in the fully vaccinated by roughly 60% but require repeated risky booster shots.

    The only thing that will save the 50 State Union is the magical disappearance of the virus or restoration of the national public health system, good government, and eradication of the virus.

    The New Zealand Prime Minister has just announced a new traffic light system for Covid which will do away with lockdowns. Howver it requires 90% vaccination first in each local District Health Board area. Auckland has 3 ranging from 70-80% vaccinated. It is unlikely to reach this target before Christmas, so most shops will remain closed. Then the unvaccinated will be able to shop but not go to a restaurant, bar, or get their haircut etc. I could ask my neighbour I guess, as she gave her boys crewcuts, hmm or maybe long hair will be a new marker.
    I am trying to suggest some reference to international data but the medical leadership, media, and politicians and public all know vaccinations are the answer, so time will tell.

    Picture of unimpressive gardener in unimpressive garden transitioning into fall and winter this week

    I have long wondered how people might join life-forces outside of the top-down economic model, which now dominates.
    Is there an app for that?

    This week I have had long talks, serious talks about our world, with good old friends of like mind, and others of like mind, more recently met. It’s been spontaneous.
    Getting fired in the garden on Monday did open that door, and I did announce it in public on the blog. It was all quite satisfying, and we all had the same things on our mind.

    The current power elites in finance, government, media, and especially the spook-world need to stay in power through the coming economic transition out of the exponential-growth economy.
    That is a transition out of the last 300 years of western economy, which is already way more than most people know. It is basically all that anybody knows, and it has all been an anomaly. The anomaly happened due to discovering a lot of free-energy and metal ores that worked well to exploit free energy and metal ores, which worked well…
    That is in terminal decline now. The production of useful things with energy and mineral resources has been such a good production engine that it has been able to carry a whole lot of non-productive humans and even counterproductive and destructive humans.
    What a marvelous mule! The mule has been fed worse and less, and is covered with leeches and ticks now. It is weakening.

    The leeches and ticks have a plan to lighten the mule’s load by getting rid of the guy with the cart and the feed bag. That guy might be us.
    That’s my analogy, and I’m sticking to it. The plan the leeches have might work for the lifespan of a leech, or maybe not quite that long.

    What are the details of the leech’s plan?
    I don’t know, but the number of humans the earth can sustain long term keeps being quoted as half a billion to a billion.
    That’s redundancy for nine out of ten of us. Time seems short. There is a sense of urgency all around.
    Usually, big wars are used to kill off a lot of the population, but not 90% of the world.
    That would destroy all of the stuff, too, and the leeches need the stuff to survive.

    Some kind of a controlled cull, fast, but not too fast, with some control elements, can be provided with pestilence and famine, without war. Wars need to avoid destroying critical infrastructure and resource access. Resources can be put into mothballs, as war did to oil under Iraq and Libya.

    Global digital currency can cut any person out at any time, causing a one-person-famine. That is ideally targeted.
    What is necessary is to maintain fealty to the owners. If the owners hold the key to life itself, which might be the treatment for the latest mortal threat, then they can eliminate those who do not comply. They can maintain control.

    Who lives compliantly under those conditions?
    Maybe not pilots for Southwest, and nuclear physicists at Los Alamos. Maybe not Chicago and LA cops.
    I won’t bend that knee. I won’t betray my patients.

    Can I live without complying with the imposed conditions? I can live today.
    I am preparing for times of irregular food and irregular fuel and irregular utilities.
    Mony looks like it is going to break again, and there are fights over what the fix will be.
    Those money-fix fights go on for decades in history. Whoever makes the money at the end is the winner.
    Sometimes money is gold and or silver. It could be oil or coal or gas or wheat.
    It can only be Bitcoin if there is a “World Wide Web”.
    A lot of partisan actors can take down the WWW these days.

    What is up with these excess deaths of healthy young people in the western world this year?
    There are more heart disease and cancer deaths than there should be.
    It’s not just COVID, and drugs and suicides and car accidents.

    Jim Kunstler wonders, too:
    ​ ​The public’s view of this panoramic debacle is apt to flip starkly in the days ahead as five years of mind-fuckery ends in this national drunken driving incident. China may postpone the Evergrande unwind a few weeks longer, but its economy is foundering on the more fundamental energy quandary — it doesn’t have enough fossil fuels to run the joint — and there’s no prospect the situation will improve, meaning that the world will get less of all of the stuff that China was making. In short, Globalism is winding down, and standards of living are sinking with that. The capital markets are gravid with terror over it.
    ​ ​Meanwhile, the West is seeing the first signs that the Covid-19 vaccines it went cuckoo for may be producing a strange phenomenon of “excess mortality” around the world. Suspiciously higher rates of heart attacks, vascular disorders, cancer, and other bad stuff. It’s downright spooky. In Scotland, for instance, the vaccination rate is 87 percent and weekly deaths are up 30 percent. Pandemic reporter Alex Berenson said on TV that non-Covid-19 deaths were significantly higher everywhere, and he mused out loud that there was some connection between this and the vaccines. Uh oh.
    ​ ​Social media, network media, and legacy print media do not want that story getting around. Some of the most deranged Wokesters across this land greeted the debut of the mRNA vaccines like a holy jubilee of salvation (and still do!). What happens in their psyches when the darn thing bites them in the ass? There’s a fair chance we’re going to find out, and soon.

    ​ ​What the British are saying is they are now finding the vaccine interferes with your body’s innate ability after infection to produce antibodies against not just the spike protein but other pieces of the virus. Specifically, vaccinated people don’t seem to be producing antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein, the shell of the virus, which are a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people.
    ​ ​This means vaccinated people will be far more vulnerable to mutations in the spike protein EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN INFECTED AND RECOVERED ONCE (or more than once, probably).
    ​ ​It also means the virus is likely to select for mutations that go in exactly that direction, because those will essentially give it an enormous vulnerable population to infect. And it probably is still more evidence the vaccines may interfere with the development of robust long-term immunity post-infection.

    The titans of global capitalism are exploiting the Covid-19 crisis to institute social credit-style digital ID systems across the West.
    ​ ​The death by starvation of Etwariya Devi, a 67-year-old widow from the rural Indian state of Jharkhand, might have passed without notice had it not been part of a more widespread trend.
    ​ ​Like 1.3 billion of her fellow Indians, Devi had been pushed to enroll in a biometric digital ID system called Aadhaar in order to access public services, including her monthly allotment of 25kg of rice. When her fingerprint failed to register with the shoddy system, Devi was denied her food ration. Throughout the course of the following three months in 2017, she was repeatedly refused food until she succumbed to hunger, alone in her home.
