Germany Promotes Moderna Shot As The ‘Rolls-Royce’ Of Covid Vaccines (RT)

The German health minister claimed that experts see the Moderna shot as the “Rolls-Royce” of vaccines, while likening the Pfizer jab to a “Mercedes” as the country looks to roll out booster shots to tame a fourth wave. Speaking on Monday, Health Minister Jens Spahn told a news conference that the government will insist on the use of the Moderna vaccine as a Covid-19 booster, warning that millions of shots could expire in the first quarter of 2022 unless used. Spahn said that some 16 million Moderna doses could go to waste unless they’re used in the coming months. “This is an important aspect, but it is not the decisive one. What’s crucial is that our BioNTech stock is emptying so fast that coming next week we won’t be able to deliver more than two-three million doses a week,” he added.


The minister emphasized that the preference of most Germans for the Pfizer vaccine was misled, as he claimed that experts call the Moderna shot the “Rolls-Royce” of Covid-19 vaccines. Meanwhile, the Pfizer vaccine, developed in partnership with German firm BioNTech, was more comparable to “Mercedes.” Germany is racing to deliver booster shots in an effort to tame a dangerous fourth wave of Covid-19, which has already led to a lockdown in neighboring Austria. Allaying fears of vaccine shortages, Spahn claimed that Germany had a combined 50 million doses from Pfizer and Moderna available until the end of the year. Earlier in November, an advisory committee said that people under the age of 30 in Germany should only receive the Pfizer vaccine, as it caused fewer heart inflammations in younger people than Moderna’s. France, among other nations, had already applied similar guidance.

German Politicians Refuse To Rule Out Mandatory COVID Vaccination (ZH)

In view of Germany’s dramatic Covid situation, and following last Friday’s news that neighboring Austria will impose a mandatory vaccination starting February, the debate about a general vaccination obligation is gaining momentum, with a growing number of political leaders saying they would not rule it out. On Thursday, the heads of the 16 federal states agreed that mandatory vaccinations for health workers should be carried out “on a facility-by-facility basis” and urged the federal government to implement this as soon as possible. But discussions for mandatory vaccines for the general population are also intensifying. According to TheLocal.de, during a press conference about the availability of mRNA vaccines on Monday morning, Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) repeatedly refused to rule out the possibility of introducing mandatory vaccination in Germany in the future.

“That is not a decision we can make today,” he told reporters. On Sunday evening, SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach had also raised the possibility of compulsory vaccinations in a talk show on the TV station Bild: “We must move towards vaccination obligation,” he argued. “Without compulsory vaccinations, we obviously won’t achieve the vaccination rate we need to get to.” On Monday morning the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced a seven-day incidence of 386.5, reaching a new high for the 15th day in a row. 30,643 new infections within 24 hours were also reported, although fewer case numbers are usually reported over the weekend. Bavaria’s Health Minister Klaus Holetschek also recently said that he would not rule out a general vaccination requirement.

“I was always actually an opponent of compulsory vaccination,” he told Deutschlandfunk radio. However, he now believes “that we need to talk about this issue relatively quickly.” “Personally, I am now actually in favour of this general vaccination obligation as a last resort,” he said. Bavaria is currently one of the worst-hit federal states in Germany: on Monday the Robert Koch Institut reported an incidence of 640 in the region. The president of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Lothar Wieler, expressed restraint in the debate about compulsory vaccination, but said that it could be seen as “as a last resort” on ZDF television on Sunday. But he repeated his calls for people to get vaccinated voluntarily. “We must ensure that we get as many people as possible to vaccinate, and boost those who have complete basic immunisation,” he said.

Australian Army Moves COVID-Positive Cases, Contacts To Quarantine Camps (ZH)

The Australian army has begun forcibly removing residents in the Northern Territories to the Howard Springs quarantine camp located in Darwin, after nine new Covid-19 cases were identified in the community of Binjari. The move comes after hard lockdowns were instituted in the communities of both Binjari and nearby Rockhole on Saturday night. “Residents of Binjari and Rockhole no longer have the five reasons to leave their homes,” said Northern Territory chief minister, Michael Gunner, referring to the country’s five allowable reasons to avoid lockdown (buying food and supplies, exercising for up to two hours, care or caregiving, work or education if it can’t be done from home, and to get vaccinated at the nearest possible location).

“They can only leave for medical treatment, in an emergency, or as required by law.” “It’s highly likely that more residents will be transferred to Howard Springs today, either as positive cases or close contacts,” he continued, adding “We have already identified 38 close contacts from Binjari but that number will go up. Those 38 are being transferred now.” “I contacted the Prime Minister last night. We are grateful for the support of about 20 ADF personnel, as well as army trucks to assist with the transfer of positive cases and close contacts – and to support the communities. We are doing an assessment today of what extra resources we might need from the Feds, and the Prime Minister is ready to help further – I thank him for that.” “We’re conscious of the fact that this can have some impacts on people’s mental health as well as their general well being,” Police Commissioner Jamie Chalkner told NT News.

Of note, the Northern Territories are home to a large percentage of indigenous Australians. As the Epoch Times’ Steve Milne notes: “According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, in 2018-19, almost one in five Indigenous Australians lived in overcrowded dwellings (18 percent), compared to 5 percent of non-Indigenous Australians. Although this percentage had decreased from 27 percent in 2004, it still meant an estimated 145,340 Indigenous Australians were living in overcrowded dwellings in 2018-19. In addition, the more remote an area, the higher the proportion of Indigenous Australians living in overcrowded dwellings (26 percent in remote areas and 51 percent in “very remote” areas), compared to 8 and 22 percent in non-remote areas.”

Gottlieb: ‘Fully Vaccinated’ To Include Boosters (Hill)

Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Sunday that he expects the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to consider Americans “fully vaccinated” when they receive a booster shot, adding that recommendations to change it would likely not happen this year. “Should the CDC say you need a booster to be considered fully vaccinated?” “Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan asked Gottlieb on CBS. “I think at some point they’re going to, but not this year,” Gottlieb answered. “I think eventually this will be considered the three-dose vaccine, but I would be hard pressed to believe CDC is going to make that recommendation any time soon, in part because of this debate about whether or not younger people who are less risk should be receiving that third dose in states where governors are looking to do this, and I think some local communities will do it,” he added.


Gottlieb was also asked about CDC saying last week that all American adults could get a booster shot while specifically recommending that people over the age of 50 get their boosters. “I think the reluctant nature by which CDC has been stepping into this debate reflects a broader ambivalence or a broader debate happening in a public health community about whether the vaccines should be used as tools to protect people from bad outcomes from COVID, or whether they should be used as tools to try to end the pandemic and control transmission,” Gottlieb said. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky late last week signed off on a recommendation from a CDC advisory panel to broaden eligibility of the COVID-19 booster to all American adults.

“..the only reason you got protection was due to a wildly elevated titer in the first place, and once it waned, which it inevitably would, you were going to get ****ed.”

Want 11% -> 25% Heart Attack Risk? For Most….. (Denninger)

its actually worse in percentage terms. Yeah, that’s bad, and we’ll get to that. But first, another study. Because, well, why tell you that you likely screwed yourself once when we can get a two-fer at once? So on the first up I have a nasty prediction to make, and you’re not going to like it — but it is, once again, nothing more than reading the data and making a reasonable projection forward based on what it shows. If you remember one of the nightmare scenarios was an “ADE” sort of response to the jabs, which many so-called “experts” poo-pooed. They had no evidence to poo-poo it, by the way, and in fact the evidence all ran the other way from history. We had never successfully vaccinated against a coronavirus producing durable immunity and this is why; the previous trials all aborted out due to VEI (vaccine-enhanced infection) which covers ADE, OAS and a whole other litany of stupidity caused by using non-sterilizing “vaccines.”

Then this paper published, which confirmed it was in play with specific focus on these jabs. “In this study we profiled vaccine-induced polyclonal antibodies as well as plasmablast-derived mAbs from individuals who received SARS-CoV-2 spike mRNA vaccine. Polyclonal antibody responses in vaccinees were robust and comparable to or exceeded those seen after natural infection. However, the ratio of binding to neutralizing antibodies after vaccination was greater than that after natural infection and, at the monoclonal level, we found that the majority of vaccine-induced antibodies did not have neutralizing activity.”

This was published in July of this year. It should have been the end of mass-vaccination attempts against Covid because it made clear that binding (infection-enhancing) antibodies were produced by the jabs in abundance and what’s worse the majority of the antibodies produced were worthless or harmful. In short the only reason you got protection was due to a wildly elevated titer in the first place, and once it waned, which it inevitably would, you were going to get ****ed. We also found a co-dominance of mAbs targeting the NTD and RBD of SARS-CoV-2 spike and an original antigenic-sin like backboost to spikes of seasonal human coronaviruses OC43 and HKU1 That’s even worse in that OC43 in particular is believed to have caused a Covid-19 like pandemic in the 1890s. Backboosting that virus, which circulates all the time in humans, is flat-out nuts because like Covid-19 the pandemic of the 1890s featured all manner of nasty death.

Since OC43 circulates in the population on a roughly four-year cycle anything that enhances that virus is begging to whack people in size — but not from Covid-19, rather from another virus that usually is nothing other than a nuisance! Well, now we’re seeing the consequences. UM (Ann Arbor) is reporting a wildly-virulent outbreak of “the worst flu ever” but the testing for Covid is coming back negative. They’re claiming its a strain of flu but that’s even worse because that strongly implies that the immune damage isn’t Covid-19 specific. [..] We had plenty of warning and should have stopped the jabs immediately in healthy people when that data became apparent because the very last thing you ever want to do is potentiate some other disease with your so-called “strategy.” What’s even worse is that this was the only reasonable and plausible explanation for why the drug companies set dosing where they did (the presence of binding antibodies) which means everyone in both the FDA and drug companies knew ******ned well before the first EUA issued that these jabs were likely to do this.

But it doesn’t end there. It is reported that the hospitalization rate for “breakthrough” infections is in the neighborhood of 9%. That is roughly double the rate the CDC “estimates” for all Covid-19 infections. In addition the recent outbreak in a CT nursing home with more than a 10% fatality rate has made clear that in terms of actually protecting people from severe outcomes who need it most the vaccines are essentially worthless. In other words when your protection wanes you are at higher risk of getting severely ill. That too is logical given the binding antibody titers. In addition there are now a myriad number of reports of people who got Covid again after being vaccinated yet non-vaccinated second infection reports remain nearly non-existent. So if you had the disease and then take the jab the evidence is that it ruined your existing protection, at least in part. How bad that will get is unknown — but we’re going to find out.

Let the stories be told.

Monday Was The Deadline For Federal Workers To Be Vaccinated (NPR)

Monday marks the deadline for millions of federal employees to provide proof that they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19. The mandate was imposed by President Biden in an executive order signed back in September. Federal workers will have all day today to turn in their proof of vaccination. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said experience with other similar mandates in the private sector indicates there could be a last minute rush to meet the requirements and submit paperwork. “We don’t see it as a cliff,” said Psaki in Friday’s briefing. For months the White House resisted vaccine mandates out of concern over backlash, but with the delta variant causing a surge in cases and the pace of vaccinations plateauing, Biden signed orders requiring all civilian federal workers and employees of federal contractors to provide proof of vaccination.


A similar requirement was instituted for members of the military and people working in nursing homes, hospitals and doctor’s offices. Although the CDC opened up booster shots to all adults on Friday, for now, the requirement is just for a single dose of the J&J vaccine or two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. That could change if the CDC updates its definition of fully vaccinated to include boosters. As for the share of federal workers who have already gotten vaccinated, Psaki said the White House will be crunching the numbers throughout the day. But she insisted they aren’t expecting disruptions caused by people choosing not to be vaccinated. “No, we do not anticipate facing any governmental operational disruptions due to this requirement,” said Psaki. “And in fact the requirement will avoid disruptions in our view because vaccinations help avoid COVID.”

System Strained As Military Personnel Seek Religious Waivers From Vaccine (WT)

The military’s system of implementing a COVID-19 vaccination order for all those in the ranks is facing unprecedented stress as a historic number of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines say their faith should allow them to skip getting the shot. The result so far has been a massive logistical headache for Pentagon leaders and an unenviable task for the chaplains who find themselves in the crosshairs. It’s a dilemma that shows no signs of easing as the services’ vaccine deadlines come and go. With the Defense Department mounting an aggressive push to get service members vaccinated and force out those who refuse, sources across military branches said the sheer volume of faith-related exemption applications is unlike anything seen before.

Exact figures for most of the military services won’t be released publicly for another several weeks, but the few numbers available so far paint a behind-the-scenes picture of a system not designed to handle such a huge influx of waiver requests in a relatively short period of time. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and senior service heads say the vaccine mandate is a readiness issue, needed to protect those who serve and prevent COVID-19 outbreaks from sidelining troops or cutting short deployments and naval missions. But as in the civilian world, vaccine skeptics are proving hard to win over, even in the face of a direct order.

“They don’t have the resources to handle this in a serious manner,” said Sean Timmons, a Houston attorney who said his firm, Tully Rinckey PLLC, represents more than 100 military personnel seeking COVID-19 exemptions, most of them on religious grounds. “It’s a giant mess,” Mr. Timmons told The Washington Times. “Nobody knows what’s going on. It’s been a complete and utter disaster every step of the way.” Pentagon officials vehemently disagree with that characterization and stress that each service member who seeks a religious waiver from the federally mandated coronavirus vaccine is given a fair hearing and ample opportunity to explain their objection.

“And on Sunday he did nothing, with apparent success.”

A Big Flip? (Jim Kunstler)

Proposing a hypothetical: What if “Joe Biden” has worsening symptoms of an adverse reaction to his late September Covid booster shot? Does that account for the sudden flurry of interest in how his handlers might manage the problem of Kamala Harris? And what, is the problem with Kamala Harris? That she is Vice-president and next-in-line for Commander-in-chief in the (adverse) event that “JB” has to step aside. And why is that a problem? Because she is widely loathed and distrusted among those who know her in Washington.

That’s what bubbled up last week as “Joe Biden” went into Walter Reed Hospital for a checkup, including an alleged colonoscopy. What if that was not the test he had? What if they ran him through a CT scan or an MRI to detect neurological damage or vascular irregularities in his brain? (In 1988, “JB” did have a couple of brain aneurysms and endured a four-and-a-half-hour microsurgical craniotomy.) Briefly during this exam, Veep Kamala Harris carried the nuclear football, gaining no yardage in the process, but curdling the spinal fluxes of many casual observers in our nation’s capital. Later, the president’s doctors issued a detailed report that portrayed an elderly gentleman “fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency….”

And so, for the next three days “Joe Biden” proceeded in his august duties. Late Friday, after the checkup ordeal, he successfully pardoned a Thanksgiving turkey (convicted of mis-gendering a capon). On Saturday, he successfully attended evening mass at a church in Wilmington. And on Sunday he did nothing, with apparent success. Today, he flies to Fort Bragg for a “Friendsgiving dinner” with soldiers. One must imagine that Kamala Harris could keep up with a schedule like that, though perhaps without successfully easing the woes and travails of the American people in this time of Covid, Climate Change, inflation, and white supremacist terrorism.

Of course, if it turned out that “Joe Biden” presented symptoms of an adverse reaction to his Covid booster shot, that might flip the government’s claim that the mRNA vaccines are harmless. It might actually blow away the entire rationale for pushing the American people around over all things Covid. It would drive a stake through the heart of the CDC and end the career of Dr. Anthony Fauci. It would end all the efforts to destroy small business and public school in the USA. It would also prompt severe reactions from the citizens in other advanced nations — especially among what is called the West — and put a stop to their lockdowns, health passports, and proposals for mandatory vaccinations.

So, you see, whatever might be going on with “Joe Biden” health-wise has got to be a national security matter. And so, considering that our government lies liberally about thousands of other matters of lesser importance, one can see that they would be motivated to not tell the truth about “JB’s” checkup.

“..releasing the information could help reassure vaccine skeptics that the shot is indeed “safe and effective and, thus, increase confidence in the Pfizer vaccine.”

Even Reuters Tripping Out On 55-Year Delay To Release Pfizer Vax Data (ZH)

Last week attorney Aaron Siri of Injecting Freedom reported that the FDA is going to take 55 years, or until 2076, to disclose all of the data and information it relied on before approving Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine. Following its publication, we expected the usual constellation of conflicted neerdowell ‘fact checkers’ to shoot it down – or at least, spin what was going on. To our surprise, that wasn’t the case. In fact, Reuters – whose founder and former CEO sits on the board of Pfizer, looked into the matter and was apparently shocked. Here’s how they explain it:

“The 1967 FOIA law requires federal agencies to respond to information requests within 20 business days. However, the time it takes to actually get the documents “will vary depending on the complexity of the request and any backlog of requests already pending at the agency,” according to the government’s central FOIA website. Justice Department lawyers representing the FDA note in court papers that the plaintiffs are seeking a huge amount of vaccine-related material – about 329,000 pages. The plaintiffs, a group of more than 30 professors and scientists from universities including Yale, Harvard, UCLA and Brown, filed suit in September in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, seeking expedited access to the records. They say that releasing the information could help reassure vaccine skeptics that the shot is indeed “safe and effective and, thus, increase confidence in the Pfizer vaccine.”

But the FDA can’t simply turn the documents over wholesale. The records must be reviewed to redact “confidential business and trade secret information of Pfizer or BioNTech and personal privacy information of patients who participated in clinical trials,” wrote DOJ lawyers in a joint status report filed Monday. The article explains how the FDA proposed releasing 500 pages per month on a rolling basis – informing the court that they only have 10 employees in the branch that would handle the review, and are currently processing around 400 other FOIA requests. “By processing and making interim responses based on 500-page increments, FDA will be able to provide more pages to more requesters, thus avoiding a system where a few large requests monopolize finite processing resources and where fewer requesters’ requests are being fulfilled,” wrote DOJ attorneys, citing other cases in which the 500 monthly page production was upheld.

The plaintiffs, on the other hand, point out that the FDA has 18,000 employees and a budget of $6 billion – and “has itself said that there is nothing more important than the licensure of this vaccine and being transparent about this vaccine.” Since the first batch of documents were released, people have already noted some disturbing findings. What could the rest of the documents reveal?

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? (Kirsch)

I’ve been reading a number of comments from people who think that my million dollar offers aren’t serious. The people who doubt me are all people who don’t know me very well. There is no evidence of anyone who has ever attempted to negotiate a definitive agreement on any of my offers. The furthest it ever got is one time someone had their attorney contact my attorney and then when we called back, they hung up on us. Clearly, they were hoping to expose me and quickly learned I don’t bluff. Here is a list of my million dollar offers. They are all done to expose corruption or to show people that nobody can dispute our calculations, even with a very large incentive.

Open million dollar offers
I will bet anyone $1M that the CDC lying to everyone about number of deaths. If you think the CDC is telling the truth, this is an easy way to double your money for a few hours of effort.

$1M research grant if you think Mathew Crawford made a math error that would change the result. I’m offering a $1M research grant to the first researcher to publish a paper that disproves Mathew Crawford’s analysis of the death data that shows that the vaccines have killed over 150,000 people in the US.

$5M bet with Gavin Newsom for a blank piece of paper. See the article. If he takes the bet, I’ll happily write a term sheet. Who would turn down $5M for a blank piece of paper? If he was vaccine injured, he’d turn it down. If he wasn’t, it’s a free $5M he can keep or donate to his favorite charity. He can argue he doesn’t need it, but how about charities? When was the last time you saw Gavin give $5M to charity? The point is that even if he’s uber rich, he’d still take the offer in a heartbeat if he had nothing to hide. The fact he’s not accepting my offer shows most (but not all) people that he’s a hypocrite by forcing people to take a vaccine he knows can damage people for the rest of their lives.

Expired million dollar offers
FDA/CDC committee debate (expired November 19, 2021)
I offered any voting member $1M to debate our team. You got the money just for showing up to be questioned. No debate here to win. Just show up at the debate table for 5 hours. Up to 5 people could show up so worst case each person walks away with at least $200K for 5 hours of work. Who would turn that down? Turns out everyone did after I sent to their emails. Which proves to me one thing: they don’t like answering questions at all.

“I am not advocating or condoning violence. But it is going to happen. It is happening already. Totalitarianism (even this “pathologized” version of it) is imposed on society and maintained with violence.”

Pathologized Totalitarianism 101 (CJ Hopkins)

On November 19, 2021, the government of New Normal Austria decreed that, as of February, experimental mRNA injections will be mandatory for the entire population. This decree comes in the midst of Austria’s official persecution of “the Unvaccinated,” i.e., political dissidents and other persons of conscience who refuse to convert to the new official ideology and submit to a series of mRNA injections, purportedly to combat a virus that causes mild-to-moderate flu-like symptoms (or no symptoms of any kind at all) in about 95% of the infected and the overall infection fatality rate of which is approximately 0.1% to 0.5%. Austria is just the tip of the New Normal spear. Prominent New-Normal fascists in Germany, like Der Führer of Bavaria, Markus Söder, and Minister of Propaganda Karl Lauterbach, are already calling for an allgemeine Impfpflicht (i.e., “compulsory vaccination requirement”), which should not come as a surprise to anyone.

The Germans are not going sit idly by and let the Austrians publicly out-fascist them, are they? They have a reputation to uphold, after all! Italy will probably be next to join in, unless Lithuania or Australia beats them to the punch.But, seriously, this is just the beginning of the Winter Siege I wrote about recently. The plan seems to be to New-Normalize Europe first — generally speaking, Europeans are more docile, respectful of all authority, and not very well armed — and then use it as leverage to force the new pathologized totalitarianism on the USA, and the UK, and the rest of the world. I do not believe this plan will succeed. In spite of the longest and most intensive propaganda campaign in the history of propaganda, there remain enough of us who steadfastly refuse to accept the “New Normal” as our new reality.

And a lot of us are angry, extremely angry … militantly, explosively angry. We are not “vaccine hesitant” or “anti-vax” or “Covid-denying conspiracy theorists.” We are millions of regular working-class people, people with principles, who value freedom, who are not prepared to go gently into the globalized, pathologized-totalitarian night. We no longer give the slightest shit whether our former friends and family members who have gone New Normal understand what this is. We do. We understand exactly what this is. It is a nascent form of totalitarianism, and we intend to kill it — or at least critically wound it — before it matures into a full-grown behemoth. Now, I want to be absolutely clear. I am not advocating or condoning violence. But it is going to happen. It is happening already. Totalitarianism (even this “pathologized” version of it) is imposed on society and maintained with violence.

Fighting totalitarianism inevitably entails violence. It is not my preferred tactic in the current circumstances, but it is unavoidable now that we have reached this stage, and it is important that those of fighting this fight recognize that violence is a natural response to the violence (and the implicit threat of violence) that is being deployed against us by the New Normal authorities, and the masses they have whipped up into a fanatical frenzy. It is also important (essential, I would argue) to make the violence of the New Normal visible, i.e., to frame this fight in political terms, and not in the pseudo-medical terms propagated by the official Covid narrative). This isn’t an academic argument over the existence, severity, or the response to a virus. This is a fight to determine the future of our societies.

Curious detail:

“Ukraine and Poland have actively opposed the Nord Stream 2 project. The two countries were added to the certification process by the German regulator last week..”

Ukraine Boasts Of Blocking Nord Stream 2 Pipeline (RT)

The new delay in approving the Russian-backed Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany is down to Kiev’s lobbying efforts, Ukraine’s foreign minister claimed after Berlin’s regulator suspended the certification process. Speaking to the news channel Ukraine 24 on Monday, Dmitry Kuleba praised Ukraine’s attempts to delay the project’s approval. “Nord Stream 2 should have been operating and earning money a long time ago, but the fact that it still does not work and we are fighting against it is the result of our common endeavors,” he said. “Together with our partners, we have significantly slowed down the implementation of this project.” Kuleba also accused Russia of trying to find grey areas in EU legislation and create preferential conditions for the pipeline. He added that Ukraine, as well as Brussels and members of the 27-strong bloc, are united in their demands that Nord Stream 2 must meet “not only the letter, but the spirit” of the EU’s Third Energy Package.


The directive outlines the unbundling of the energy supply, the importance of independent regulators, as well as open and fair retail markets. The minister’s comments come after Berlin paused the certification process of the underwater pipeline last week. It will be halted until the company behind the initiative reorganizes itself in accordance with German law. Ukraine and Poland have actively opposed the Nord Stream 2 project. The two countries were added to the certification process by the German regulator last week. However, they do not have the power to block its implementation, and can only provide their opinions on the venture. Kiev has also warned it stands to lose billions of dollars if there is a decrease in the volume of Russian gas being exported through the Soviet-built pipeline network that spans the country.

The Case for a Debt Jubilee (Richard Vague)

“In many of the most prominent ancient civilizations, including ancient Sumer, Babylon, Assyria, Akkadia, Egypt, Sparta, Corinth, and China, excessive household debt was a huge and recurring problem. This may come as a surprise to a reader today, because ancient societies are often misleadingly described as barter-based. In fact, debt was a necessary and pervasive part of these earliest economies, and our ancient ancestors quickly developed a sophisticated understanding of debt and lending, with laws and institutions to govern that lending. Debt did then many of the same things that it does now: it facilitated payment for labor, allowed for the acquisition of supplies, and bridged the time between planting and harvest — the reaping and then the sowing of profit.

“Some families in these agricultural societies would find themselves with little option but to amass debts in order to live, but in time the burden of this debt could cause them to lose their land, their means of sustenance, and even their liberty, in the tragic form of debt bond servitude. … Interest rates were high and lenders quickly learned the power of compounding. Bouts of disease, drought, war, or other disasters often exacerbated citizens’ debt burdens. These ancient economies would sometimes reach the brink of collapse under the staggering weight of private indebtedness.

“For this reason among others, kings devised the practice of debt forgiveness or amnesty as a solution. A king might proclaim a debt amnesty for a number of reasons, as we will see, including to ensure that citizens were available to serve in his army and help build the great public works of that society. At first, historians were surprised to learn of this phenomenon, but archeologically documented instances of debt amnesty are numerous and growing, and refer to actual, and fundamental, debt practices in these cultures. In fact, some historians view this practice as conservative, counterintuitive as that may sound, since it was a mechanism that both preserved the practice of lending and kept those loans from overwhelming these economies.

“A key Old Testament passage, Deuteronomy 15:2-3, describes clearly the time when these debt amnesties were proclaimed: ‘Every creditor shall cancel any loan they have made to a fellow Israelite. They shall not require payment from anyone among their own people, because the Lord’s time for cancelling debts has been proclaimed. You may require payment from a foreigner, but you must cancel any debt your fellow Israelite owes you.’

    Totally pointless post that goes on far too long. So, same as usual:

    Biological Female Prisoners Sue California After Officials Altered Complaints Over Trans ‘Male’ Sex-Offenders”

    The problem is more here: “have one blanket term that covers all who don’t fit into the usual mold”. Because the Natives could see “reality”, what was out there in the daily world, they didn’t have the western sense of “usual mold” in my opinion. Things were what they were, and if Bob acted like something, Bob was Bob and he’s also your cousin so you’ll have to deal with him. This is the nature of small communities quite probably, not creating an abstract demographic bell curve someone’s not conforming to. …While missing the whole point that EVERYONE on the Bell Curve is ‘normal’, as all bell curves have tails, and no bell curves have only the middles.

    Some people are “Two spirits” but that word has a specific meaning too, the meaning is more not-sexual-descriptor but spirit-descriptor, and most people aren’t that. It might be easier to take a gradation as most aspects of reality are. Some people are born highly polarized into their gender (whatever THAT is either), some are middle, some are comfortable either way so it would never occur to them if not barraged with persuasion. Some are further out, and even to a point where they have to choose, which may not mean much to “choose”, just push your emphasis, soft or hard. And some will probably be born and remain that way and could probably still be changed using deep shamanic measures, but why would you? What would be the point unless “God made a mistake” in the first place, and isn’t that rebellion? “I know why God created me and the world so I’m going to uncreate it”?

    My point in bringing it up is that these guys are dissolving reality itself. Gender both exists and is the most important thing in the world, and also doesn’t exist and can be picked new each morning. You’re both born gay, so there’s no choice and we must have tolerance, AND you can choose your gender any time you like, or fluid non-genders, like waterkin no one’s heard of. It’s infantile. You ARE something. We don’t have to define it, it doesn’t have to fit a stereotype, but it exists. The point of “gay,” “straight,” ‘waterkin’ or whatever is to make OTHERS behave in a pre-established way towards you. That I neither care nor obey them, is therefore a furious, unforgivable act – even though I have the same behavior and opinion to straight people and don’t involve myself in their sex lives either.

    Don’t you know where I put my penis is the most important thing in the world? I simply MUST tell you all about it, and you MUST treat me accordingly. …But I don’t care about you, your penis, or what you do with it. We’re not best friends and it’s rude and pretty off-color to force this private, unnecessary information on me. You’re Bob, bagging my groceries, and that’s enough for me. In addition, your penis is the LEAST important thing in the world, and it makes me think less of you that you attach so much importance to it and not your goodness, morality, and immortal soul which ARE important aspects, and although I’m polite, it kind of makes you seem pretty shallow to me, sorry. In addition to an astonishing and dangerous (medically) round of sleeping around to come to this focus and enlargement of this minor aspect of self. …Which as ego is ALSO minor. So a minor of a minor, turned into your whole identity.

    So it’s a multiple form of violence: to impose it on you, to demand a canned behavior, and to go nuclear if you don’t get the reaction you have no reason to demand from me. And that part has nothing whatsoever to do with your person and your orientation. It’s gotten so bad the straight world has had to form a careless and unconscious response to it “I don’t care what you do, just don’t put it in my face”. Pretty similar response as the world had to Christian evangelizing. Identical maybe. The key part is the first one: “I don’t care,” “Leave me alone”, but they only hear the second part as: “you can’t express yourself” “you’re not allowed to be.” Which CAN be what they mean, but you can see my diagnosis, isn’t REALLY what they mean. Imagine a world where people are relatively private and formal. No one would care because they’re not going to your parties or your bedroom. It’s already a crime to assault someone. Seems like everything’s settled. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT WE’RE GETTING. And I’m afraid – in fact too late – that antagonizing the majority in weird, cruel, and outlandish ways will cause a terrible backlash that will put “gay rights” (whatever that means – remember, there are no genders so there is no orientation) back to 1960.

    We also have the problem that this sort of thing is notorious for appearing at the end of a culture, when it collapses. There’s a vague unease then that it causes collapse, or the moral rot is represented by it, but I really think it represents something different. As people are on a gradation, how do you get more people to orient and push themselves opposite to their, well, supposed birth gender, whatever that is/means? And I really think being grounded in the earth, into life, reality, causes you to see and feel and express that innate, universal voice that is very subtle. And you may think being a woman is stupid and men have it all, which is visible, intellectual, and drive your body that way, into being more man-like and man-being from your mind. But when you see and feel the subtle earth, the power of yin or yang, whichever you are, you might also say “Ah, this day has made me understand it – my gender, the self type I was born with – connect with it, and think it’s pretty good after all. Maybe I’ll go with it. Tie into it stronger.” As you know, the focal point of TV and advertising is to make us perennially discontented with all we have and are, and that something we show you is always better. Which it isn’t. For YOU. Because you are you and not a TYPE, and the box and limits of that TYPE would crush and confine you.

    Because strangely gender isn’t born so much but people come about it, grow into their “gender”– whatever that is — especially when they’re young, hearing the voice of What Is, or I Am, comes from quiet, grounded places and cultures. So if you unmoor and unground a culture, it’s so frentic, so loud, so overmentalized, and therefore so screwed up that the ungrounding draws people away from who they are and what they would be into some plays and stories, ideas and ego abstractions instead of going deeper into discovering their whole selves. Then they attach to this IDEA of something, IDEA of gender, what is gender? A stereotype? From the ‘50s? From the 80s? Of Soviet women on the Eastern Front? What? This is all mental. The IDEA of what it is instead of a body that includes so much MORE than ideas, mentalism, abstractions. Which are fun, sure, and seem big, but ultimately are hollow and make you deeply unhappy and unfilfilled.

    You can see that now when, arguably the world has never been more permissive or tolerant of genders since Rome, gay people or especially trans are deeply unhappy, measurably, statistically unhappy, and neither coming out, nor gender changes, nor anything seems to work, suicide rates are significantly higher, long-term relationships are less common, assault is high — and usually from partners — dangerous sex and drug use are rampant, and instead of looking at the beliefs and paradigm that led them there, blame straight people they never met for their free-floating unhappiness. It’s not a road I would choose, for myself or anyone near me. If you’re capable of choosing. Most people I know who have chosen it are noticeably more unhappy, and have more difficult relationships and more difficult lives. If you must, you must, I guess, and very personal, no business of mine, but since history seems to suggest the wild majority have a choice, you can most probably choose not to make life additionally hard on yourself. And what would be the point? The purpose, the gain? But you can. Go ahead. Just don’t blame me for it and claim favors from me afterwards. I would have told you to go this other direction, follow this other, deeper voice, and be happy. I had to, to find out, to choose how respond, same as everyone else.

    Denninger is correct in my opinion. Unfortunately, it’s not simple to discuss nor has a magic bullet, so no one will read. This is matching 10 years of mRNA failure (or success, depending on your goals) where it might cause protection, but then immune collapse and killing everyone when presented with any similar wild strain. This may go further into more different flus or diseases than expected, but remains to be proven. The cancer numbers are not promising. And “not promising” in this environment means “almost certainly true.”

    Had I omitted Dr D from mention concerning bandwidth an accusation of discrimination could be leveled, no defensible reply could be made. I use the D(uh) as a relic of my first impression of the Dr’s early essays those many years ago, when reading one would come across some assertion, either narrowly or excessively broadly drawn that was arguable and reading would halt at that point, the greater fraction of the piece unread. However, over the years, practice has tended to smooth those obstacles slightly. Recently the good Dr produced a short essay that was concise, focused AND coherent, drawing a posted comment from me (IISRC). Your milage obviously differs but I can live with that.

    I’m with V.A. on DD… even his “Totally pointless post that goes on far too long. So, same as usual” stretch my thinking. It’s like reading Jonathon Turley (but different!).

    Denninger says: “UM (Ann Arbor) is reporting a wildly-virulent outbreak of “the worst flu ever” but the testing for Covid is coming back negative. They’re claiming its a strain of flu but that’s even worse because that strongly implies that the immune damage isn’t Covid-19 specific.”

    Operative word most often seen in MSM: “claiming”.

    https://www.health.com/condition/flu/university-of-michigan-flu-outbreak-influenza-a: says “”We quickly identified these cases as influenza A(H3N2) virus infections,” Lindsey Mortenson, University Health Services medical director, said in the November 15 news release. “Partnering with the CDC will accelerate our understanding of how this flu season may unfold regionally and nationally in the setting of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

    And they then go on to discuss the family tree of flu viruses, symptoms, etc.

    I’ve been loath to tell my brother (who is gay), for fear of the very reaction Dr. D describes, that his orientation is secondary to his humanity. Also that we all would be wise to think of ourselves as human first, our identities last. Our identities are only good for seeking those with similar traits for warmth, not as a battle cry to war. Our orientation toward cooperation is what has ensured our survival for hundreds of thousands of years, and our fixation on our “place” has been destructive. Perhaps we’ll learn this again.

    Psychologically how well adapted are people into admitting they were lied to about the vaccine?

    Anecdotally, it appears that there is a streak of schadenfreude attitude in the Vaxxed. “I took one for the team; now it is your turn.”

    I’m not sure if we have the commonly shared values to “Do the right thing” vs. “Do the popular/expected thing” in today’s society.

    As JHK often says: “We live in a world where anything goes, and nothing matters.”

    I came across this gem yesterday and felt it might be helpful to some in the TAE community who are struggling to adapt to recent changes in their level of awareness:

    Climbing The Ladder of Awareness

    And being the non-compliant (stubborn) type, unwilling to be classified or forced into a box, I seem to have gone down both the “outer path” and “inner path” to cope with my own newly acquired awareness, although the inner path has always been my default, or innate preference.

    Keep in mind that this “Ladder of Awareness” is a crude representation of a process that is extremely complex – the evolution of consciousness. Using myself an example, I’m certain that in most areas I am still “Dead asleep” (Stage 1), whereas in some others I am approaching a system-level (Stage 5) awareness.

    I’ve provided my email several times. Anyone wants to bash me, or gossip about others, let’s get a room, ok?

    I have critiqued posters here, particularly Dr. D. (to the point of wondering if he wasn’t a pro paid to sow division; but he responded as a genuine generate human being in a live-and-let-live manner that ended those suspicions). I’ve critiqued logic and data, not the posters themselves.

    A troll is as a troll does. Today, T-Bear ascted like a troll, barging in from nowere with pointless ad hominems. ThIs is true regardless of how many shots of ouzo he and Rauil may have tossed back together. Same for v.

    On the mystery of Africa not being decimated by Covid (prev. thread):

    quote…But there is something “mysterious” going on in Africa that is puzzling scientists, said Wafaa El-Sadr, chair of global health at Columbia University. “Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that they have in Europe and the U.S., but somehow they seem to be doing better,” she said.

    https://on.mktw.net/3nIfACq

    Just a news article so who knows. If covid ‘scientists; aka gvmt. / corporate / other sleazy spokes-persons were sincere in their analysis, they would glibly mention:

    — much, much, younger population

    — few oldies over 70 or so with serious co-morbities

    — less fatties and obese ppl (in most places)

    — less travel, more time spent outside, more ‘natural’ activity (walk, bike, weed etc., do laundry, etc.) perhaps less food / fast food, dangerous meds, and more.

    — maybe: vaxxed against TB (BCG vax), taking ivermectin for parasites, other (if effective or not no matter)

    Reportedly Bill Gates waved his hands and said he didn’t know…here an older article (where ‘young’ is mentioned by him)

    https://bit.ly/30Vr251

    They can’t pontificate / jaw around about this, because they know the COV deaths in the West are due to corruption, control of Med. regulatory circuits, financial incentives thrown at compliant and greedy admins and docs, old ppl being locked up with controlled med. staff / rules (perhaps even killing some off by isolation and opacity of poor care/treatment protocols), statistical cheats, and so on, so they just pretend to be dumbfounded.

    But wait! There’s more! Follows is an exchange I had this morning in private with a TAE irregular inspired by a meme shared by our host in today’s TAE:

    bosco: health crisis or natinal insanity?

    sinai

    TAE irregular: “Neither one. The term you’re looking for is premeditated murder. When it’s done on this scale, however, it’s usually called genocide. You might think I’m using gallows humor to make a really really dark joke, but I’m not. I’m deadly serious. What we’re experiencing is the most carefully planned genocide in the history of the world. Defense against it is quite difficult because the “benefactors” planners and executives are not accessible for us to shoot . They live high up and far away, surrounded by well armed security. Their minions and henchmen are too stupid and ignorant to positively identify as knowingly culpable enough to shoot on sight . . . and the lowest level killer-goons are just too fucking numerous ( like TENS OF MILLIONS ) to eliminate by any means short of WW2 style mass combat. Solution : just go on living until further notice, and when the crisis hits your doorstep (i.e. when you have been backed into the last corner and must either kill or be killed) then do what ya gotta do. It’s just a war in the oldest fashion sense of the word. Non-humans have been living (and thriving) under those rules since life emerged on the planet and seem to be doing pretty well overall. Why should humans be any exception?”

    bosco: Premeditated murder is another example of Blaming the Boss. We allow this to happen. We fund it and enshrine it. I don’t believe it is ” the most carefully planned genocide in the history of the world” although my belief is just that: my belief. The data fit the Premed Murder genocide case as well as the collective insanity case.

    Either way, crises will affect our doorsteps.

    Also, I don’t think comparison of homo saps with general life on earth fits here. None of them have the cognitive prostheses we have (beginning with rational symbolic language). While we share with other species a basic biological armature of instincts and such, from there we veer rapidly away, beginning with our departure from the Law of the Jungle: destroy-and-consume only to maintain life. We consume everything we can find.

    This comes from the guy who actually believes there is a high probability of dark Satanic Overlords/ET manipulators/exploiters involved in all this somehow. Said belief is useless in functional reality; it only serves the philosophical curiosity and anxiety of my soul. What use there is in nurturing my soul this way is a vast topic, so I’ll just say that it helps me and encourages me to be good amid espair, and who knows? Maybe the Lord does guide my path when I devote my consciouesness to him. If I heard voices in my heads I’d follow them but I don’t so I follow Dah Lawd.

    Knowing that the likes of Soros/Gates are what I’ll call Functionally Evil doesn’t provide any useful knowledge for me other than to remind me to exercise what I already know: don’t trust anyone with whom you don’t know or have a contract to deal fairly and benevolently with you, and be prepared to back up contract agreements with enforcement, be it attorney, public shaming, or baseball bat.

    The most carefully planned and efficient genocide in modern history was the Shoa, and that developed out of provisional arrangements over the course of less than 20 years.

    I think that The Powers That Be are just fucking up as selfishly and blindly and deludedly in their exercise of the enormous powers available at their level, as we are fucking up selfishly, blindly, and deludedly on our level.

    Jesus, confronted by Satan, didn’t fight or fixate on the little fucker. He said, “Get thee behind me, Satan” i.e., sniff my farts and eat my dust. He (and I) focus on following God, the probable source of all this and, I choose to believe, a reliably benevolent entity.

    So yeah, they’re rounding up, in Australia’s Northern Territory, a community suspected of, er, ‘harboring covid virii’ even though they are already self-isolating way out in the middle of nowhere: Kowa Bunga, Dude , and yes, these are the line of white supremacists who’ve run Australia since the day it graduated from penal colony to Asshole Nation # 1 of the planet, but that’s opportunism, in my book, just like making a ton of money via the covid pretext has become THE global industry of choice.

    Genocide? Class genocide by the uber-wealthy on the more or less rest of us? BIologically nuking their customer base? That’s a job for evil aliens and malevolent demiurges, not bimbos like Gates who’s stupid enough to get sucked into Epstein’s kompromat machine:

    @ Tim Groves
    Much appreciation for sharing how it is on the ground in Japan.

    @ Dr D
    Enjoyed your rant today re gender, et al.
    My daughter has gravitated towards the gender non-conforming crowd at school. Apparently, in a new school in the middle of second grade it was the older, lgbtqi kids who were immediately kind to her and befriended her. (It was a multi-grade classroom.) That was nearly six years ago. So now I’ve witnessed some in her friend group as they are navigating puberty and taking on various lgbtqi identities. My daughter is doing the same. And I’m hearing her perspective on her friends. Interestingly, last year most of my daughter’s friends were female; this year most are male. I observed her doing what I would consider “flirtatious” behavior with a male friend last week, yet in her mind she is only interested in girls that way. Definitely odd to tell kids that their identity is a matter of choice…when I don’t see it that way, identity bubbles up, and is discovered/realized over time, although cultural taboos and other issues can cause it to become suppressed. I suppose that I am trying to understand this lgbtqi phenomenon. I think that it is good to accept folks as they are…I see it problematical when lgbtqi is almost seen as a “hero badge,” or something that teens need to “figure out” so that they can announce their preferences. I think that the way lgbtqi is being expressed culturally promotes stress in teens who feel obligated to sort it all out. (There are so many things that teens need to sort out in our culture — why pressure them in this area?)

    The blanket statement: “ gay people or especially trans are deeply unhappy, measurably, statistically unhappy, ” doesn’t conform to my anecdotal experience. However that may be because when I sought out a “religious home” as a functional atheist it was with a congregation with a large percentage of lgbtqi folks. Overall, those I interacted with there had stable lives and relationships — just as much as the hetero-normative folks that I know. I suspect that stable people were more likely than most to seek out the congregation and attend regularly than those who were not stable. (The biggest exception was a trans-man who clearly had severe issues, on disability for bipolar personality disorder…kept life stable for himself and his two daughters just barely. He is kind, but cannot emotionally handle the stress of regular employment. I respected that he maintained a stable life for his kids, including good schooling, extra curricular activities, and family therapy.). I suspect that people with stability issues often try out lgbtqi identities as “solutions”…making it difficult to know the source of the instability — the lgbtqi lifestyle/identity? Or other issues that may co-occur? I found the same instabilities present when my ex insisted that we (i.e. he) get involved in the local polyamory and related subcultures — many of those involved were not very stable, although there were a handful who had been in the community a very long time who who were stable, with stable relationships.

    @ Bosco “ If there’s a model that describes contemporary Euromerican reality, it’s Game Show.”
    AGREED!

    I appreciate the varied voices. If I’m not up to all the reading that day, I scroll.

    Repeated link to petition signed by Canadian lawyers against vaccine mandates. Very well- argued. Concerned citizens are also invited to sign. It was launched by a law professor at Queen’s University.

    @Bosco, we don’t have to guess. The Money Power Monopolist families FINANCE their agendas — they control the money, who gets it, and where it goes. Not every dollar, but every dollar that matters to their agenda! They don’t care where lots of the money goes as long as THEIR AGENDA IS IMPLEMENTED.
    They KNOW their agenda is immoral, SO THEY WON’T DO IT. Rather, they hire pathological money seekers they consider to be Luciferian trash to do the dirty work.
    So, in a very real sense, both you and your TAE irregular are BOTH CORRECT, but you are looking at different layers of the system, as opposed to the system as a whole and breaking down multiple layers within the single Money Power Fascist system.
    They reveal how it works… in imagery. Look at the back of the $1 bill the Money Power designed to mock us. It is a pyramid of BRICKS. Layers of BRICKS. Then there is a GAP to the NON-BRICK ALL SEEING EYE. The Money Power is at the top, AND LAYERS OF BRICKS BELOW THEM.
    The bricks are insane, even the well paid ones. Sure, they have it good when it comes to getting paid now, but they work for a degeneracidal system… genocide via self-inflicted degeneration.
    “My people perish for lack of knowledge” is viewed as a mandate, not from a Pants Pooper, but from “Source.”
    Oh, and I don’t support the disrespect sent your way — you deserved to have you name mocked. Using your actual nick was insulting, when an emo is trying to insult you based on their own Fe-ars and insecurities. You at least deserve the respect of irrational ad hominem when someone is emoting because they can’t handle the Ugly Truth, and can’t wield logic any better than a set of nunchucks against Bruce Lee and his nunchucks…

    “Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that they have in Europe and the U.S., but somehow they seem to be doing better,” she said.

    There is no mystery. The average person in Africa isn’t eating iron fortified foods, and their matrilineal line hasn’t been eating iron fortified foods for generations.

    CovFeFe, whatever it really is, CAUSES TOXIC IRON STORED IN INTRA-CELLULAR FERRITIN TO “BUST OUT OF JAIL” and drive oxidative stress… and cytokine storms (the storm that ended the calm… oh, the Money Power loves to mock you to your face through their operatives… all to prove in their own minds we are unfit, and deserve to die because only the fit survive, right? Natural Law, and all.

    Ferritin explodes in the serum of the worst CovFeFe cases because it gets ejected from the cell after the iron does its jailbreak routine.

    Why is iron so key? Read Daniel 2:43 — the Money Power have, and they believe God has sanctioned any type of iron related damage they can inflict on the Scripturally ignorant debt-based money moron classes.

    It really isn’t complex… once the emo-blinders are removed, anyway.

    Read Title VII if in America. Rothschild told you you have the responsibility to KNOW your rights — and stop depending on others to defend yourself (they won’t do it).

    Athiests can have a religious exemptions — base it on “natural law.” This is your belief that the world works a certain way, and you believe you are supposed to work within the constraints of “natural law.”

    Spend time over at Peggy Hall The Healthy American on Youtube. You can get an exemption in many cases. There may be a few where you can’t, but MAKE SURE YOU KNOW, BECAUSE OTHERS WILL MISLEAD YOU.

    Stand for your unalienable rights. A religious exemptions is NOT a gift, it is YOUR RIGHT, so claim it as such, using the data and logic to support your case. I bet your company HR has never even read Title VII.

    Currency (current) flows through banks (guiding the currency/current) to where the Money Power want it to flow… Hidden in plain language.

    Energy IS the global economy! You do understand this!
    Mr UK enquired about a utopia world. Free energy makes this an immediate reality. Tesla already did the heavy lifting, He was a true genius, and note that he is seldom discussed in the educational system anywhere in the world.
    I can’t imagine why!
    Laughing out loud!
    Zippy, do you think you can be the energy messiah? Is that your destiny?
    Note: Don’t count on going to your local bank branch for working capital!

    I will tell you, Zippy, that all the information is publicly available to create free energy. The problem was that Tesla forgot to design in a METER!
    Those wacky engineers!!

    Edison had the good sense to invent a light bulb that is about 2% energy efficient! Good Edison!

    Unvaxed sperm commands 400% premium

    The young un-vaxed will have Golden DNA and no one will marry or even date the vaxed before long, much less have sex and exchange any bodily fluids.

    The depopulation agenda behind the Plandemic is counting on sterilizing an enormous quantity of young adults who were already previously experiencing a steep decline in viable sperm and eggs.

    Now, the young adult with any sense who wants to have children would NEVER mate with a vaxed (contaminated with spike protein bio-weapon) possible mate if they wanted any chance at healthy children.

    I already have two first hand accounts of young engaged couples within my direct circle of friends who broke up because one party discovered the other had enormous student loan debt and they didn’t want to start out married life with a huge burden of debt. It’s hard enough to afford a home and car etc without starting off owing hundreds of thousand of dollars in student loans.

    Well, add to that a deformed genetic makeup because you took the spike protein bio-weapon Clot Shot, and it become a real DEAL BREAKER in the long term relationship department.

    Wait until the full scope of the mRNA damage to reproductive capacity becomes obvious and Un vaxed sperm will reach 40000% premium, up there with The Children of Men nose bleed level.

    I like to hear from all voices. It broadens my view, just as seeing the world did when I was younger. So if someone talks about Rome’s three traffic rush hours each day, I know what they are talking about!
