No, really, people like Malone and Rogan are actually anti-vaccine, they just claim they’re against mandates: “They’re using terms that they know are not going to get censored.”

What a stupid hit piece. Is that all you got?

Organized On Facebook, A Who’s Who Of Anti-Vaccine Activists Head To DC (NBC)

Thousands of protesters are expected to descend on Washington this weekend for a rally against Covid-19 vaccine mandates, a sign that the anti-vaccination movement that gained traction on social media during the pandemic is spilling even further into politics and real life. The rally has been largely organized on Facebook and some extremist internet forums, and organizers have raised at least $200,000 on a crowdfunding site. Some nearby hotels in Virginia are sold out ahead of the event, according to the event’s organizers, who are arranging last-minute travel plans for latecomers. The “Defeat the Mandates DC” Facebook group, in which much of the organizing has taken place, now has more than 11,000 members, gaining almost 3,000 in just the last week.

Organizers of the rally, Defeat The Mandates: An American Homecoming, say they are expecting tens of thousands of attendees who will begin their protest at the Washington Monument at 10:30 a.m. ET Sunday. The event adds momentum to activists who continue to find ways to spread false and misleading claims about the Covid vaccines, now often focusing on mandates as an entry point. Among the scheduled speakers is Dr. Robert Malone, a virologist who has recently emerged as a new leader of the anti-vaccination movement after appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast in December. Malone, who is president of the Pandemic Health Alliance, the organization soliciting donations for the rally, has pushed anti-Covid vaccine talking points, including tweeting a retracted study falsely claiming Covid vaccines caused a substantial number of deaths. He has instead repeatedly advocated for the use of ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug that the Food and Drug Administration does not consider an effective treatment against Covid.

On Rogan’s podcast, which is estimated to reach tens of millions of people and was the top podcast on Spotify in 2021, Malone insisted that Sunday’s event is an anti-mandate rally, and not an anti-vaccine rally. Rogan said he will not be attending the rally. Anti-vaccine groups on Telegram have also pushed local “Defeat the Mandates” rallies planned for Sunday in several cities, including Denver and Sacramento, California. Some of the events have been amplified on Telegram by members of extremist groups like the Proud Boys, with one account adding that the event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, would feature a “mask burning.” Kolina Koltai, a postdoctoral fellow who researches the anti-vaccine movement at the University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public, said the D.C. event was bringing together some of the most high-profile anti-vaccine activists. “It’s a who’s who of grifters and people who made a profit off the pandemic,” she said.

[..] The permit for the rally was filed by the Children’s Health Defense Fund. Organizers expect 20,000 people, according to the permit, which also requires attendees to wear masks in crowded outdoor areas. Koltai said that while most, if not all, of the speakers at Sunday’s rally oppose vaccines, referring to the rally as being against mandates is a way to drum up wider support and also evade bans from Facebook and Twitter, which frequently take down anti-vaccine misinformation. “As policies have changed on Facebook, we’ve seen anti-vaccine groups rebrand to ‘pro-medical freedom’ or ‘pro-choice,’” she said. “They’re using terms that they know are not going to get censored.”

We’ve seen from umpteen sources that the vaccines don’t work vs Omicron, but Walensky now says “if you recently got your second dose, you’re not eligible for a booster, you’re up to date”. That should confuse a few people…

CDC Plans To ‘Pivot The Language’ On Vaccination, Walensky Says (Fox)

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a Friday briefing that the agency is working to “pivot” its language regarding what it means to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Responding to a question about why the CDC is not changing the definition of the phrase to include a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, the health leader told reporters that it is working to “pivot the language to make sure that everybody is as up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines as they personally could be, should be, based on when they got their last vaccine.” “So, importantly, right now, we’re pivoting our language. We really want to make sure people are up to date.

That means if you recently got your second dose, you’re not eligible for a booster, you’re up to date. If you are eligible for a booster and you haven’t gotten it, you’re not up to date and you need to get your booster in order to be up to date,” she added. Previously, Walensky and others had stated that the definition of being fully vaccinated would not change from those who have received their primary series of their COVID-19 vaccine. “So, individuals are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if they’ve received their primary series. That definition is not changing,” she said during a Jan. 5 White House COVID-19 Response Team briefing. “But consistent with how public health has historically viewed or even talked about how we recommend vaccines, we are now recommending that individuals stay up to date with additional doses that they are eligible for.”

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN on Friday that the CDC had not updated the language because their recommendations are about “how well you are protected rather than a definition.”

Completely ignoring VAERS. Which should be the first thing they check every morning. Walensky turns it all upside down. While we know a lot (most?) of what is registered as Covid deaths are not really, she now claims vaccinated people dying in a car crash should not be in VAERS. Sly.

Fauci, Walensky Dodge When Asked About Number Of Vaccine Deaths (WND)

How many people have died as a result of COVID-19 vaccines? Nobody can say for sure – because correlation doesn’t necessarily mean causation – but it’s clearly a question in the public interest. A “national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines,” called the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, or VAERS, was established for that important purpose. It’s co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. So, when CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and top White House coronavirus adviser and National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci appeared before a Senate committee hearing Tuesday on the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, a senator posed the question.

But amid the most ambitious vaccination effort in the history of the world, Walensky and Fauci didn’t have an answer. They curiously both began with emphasizing that people can’t rely on VAERS for any indication, because, they said, people who get hit by a car shortly after being vaccinated get recorded as vaccine deaths. Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala, noted that the number of COVID-19 vaccine deaths is “in the thousands.” As of Dec. 31, VAERS recorded 21,382 vaccine-related deaths and 113,303 hospitalizations among a total of 1,016,999 adverse event reports. “Is this true?” the senator asked Walensky. “Are we having that many people die after taking one of these vaccines.”

She responded by saying that VAERS is a “mandatory system of any adverse event that happens after being vaccinated.” “So, if you get hit by a car, tragically, after getting vaccinated, that gets reported in the vaccine adverse reporting VAERS system,” Walensky said. “So the vaccines are incredibly safe,” she continued. “They protect us against omicron, they protect us against delta, they protect us against COVID. They don’t protect us against every other form of mortality out there.” Tuberville asked again. “Do we keep numbers of people that die … following taking this vaccine? Do we have any idea?” “Absolutely, yes,” Walensky said. “I couldn’t give you the absolute number off the top of my head, but I can absolutely get back in touch with you with those data.”

Tuberville turned to Biden’s top health adviser. “Do you know, Dr. Fauci? Do you have any clue on that?” “I don’t have a number, but I think part of the confusion is that when you get vaccinated and get hit by a car … that’s the thing that get’s confusing, that everything that happens after the vaccination — even if you die of something completely obviously unrelated, it’s considered a death,” he said. Walensky added, “And every one of those is adjudicated.” Many physicians and scientists believe the true VAERS figures are much higher. Physicians who sued the FDA for documents related to clinical trials for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine estimate the true numbers are five times higher. A recent study led by a researcher at Columbia University estimated the actual figures are higher by a factor of 20. If the underreporting factor is correct, it would mean that there are nearly 400,000 deaths due to COVID-19 vaccines.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services points out that a VAERS report is not documentation that a link has been established between a vaccine and an adverse event. However, HHS also notes that VAERS is a “passive” system of reporting, and it “receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events.” Many health care workers have disclosed they are instructed by their superiors not to report to VAERS any harm caused by COVID vaccines.

“These are the real bioweapons, not a virus, which, by their own terms, poses a negligible threat to most people.”

Hiding the Bodies (Diana West)

The lethality of the covid “vaccine” is the last thing media and political and money elites want us “useless eaters” to understand. The mantra they have pressed on us is “safe and effective,” which I think of as the new “Sieg Heil.” We’re supposed to repeat after them, while sucking on the same old puff-blah, “Fauci, Walensky testify while omicron prompts many possible changes” (Associated Press); or the same old melodrama, “Criticized by Senators, U.S. Health Officials Defend Omicron Response” (NYT); or, worst of all, the “battle” of Fauci vs. Paul, those fake gladiators in the arena fighting over nothing. (I’ll get back to that.)

Among others, CNBC pushed the latter (“Fauci says Sen. Rand Paul’s false accusations ‘kindles the crazies’ and have incited death threats”), as did Fox, only the other way around (“Rand Paul rips Fauci following latest hearing fireworks: He doesn’t want debate because he ‘is science’). Whatever Fauci and Rand Paul lob at each other in these recurring “showdowns,” their dispute over virus research in Wuhan has nothing, zip, nada, to do with the agony of our nation. We are not dying over the origins of a virus which may not exist, or even over the virus itself (plus “variants”) with its 99+ percent survival rate, and whose average age of death approximates the average age of death. We are dying from the tyrannical “cure”: each and every act of oppression imposed on us by our very own governments and institutions, all in the name of a fake plague called “covid.”

From “flattening the curve (15 days), to “lockdowns” forever, to “social distancing” and other totalitarian measures including incessant “testing” (with a fake test), we find ourselves not on the road to something they mockingly call “public health,” but rather to a state of perpetual fear, vaxx apartheid, “green passes,” concentration camps (happening), digital currency (to come), a vaxx-caused die-off and overall sickening of the world’s peoples, and, I am increasingly persuaded, the goal of ending the human species itself in gene-engineered and nano-wired “transhumanism.”

There is a simple switch to shut down the dystopian juggernaut. If we were to stop “testing” healthy people by the million (or if healthy people were to refuse to be tested by the million) the Xi to Gates Foundation to WEF to WHO to CDC to Johns Hopkins “dashboards” would stop generating the false-positive-“cases” that drive the closures, the stoppages, the firings, the breakdowns, the hysteria, rage and more testing. Without the fake statistical drivers that fuel this “pandemic,” this “pandemic” stops. So, theoretically, does demand for, or submission to the covid shot of Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Astra Zeneca, Comiraty, all of them. These are the real bioweapons, not a virus, which, by their own terms, poses a negligible threat to most people.

The Omicron Hypothesis, Part 1 (Crawford)

As omicron took over the caseload, the case fatality rate (CFR), which is the proportion of COVID-19 cases that are fatal (cases, not infections), took a nosedive. Per case, COVID-19 is almost 90% less deadly than prior to the omicronification of the pandemic. In fact, we may pass 90% by the time I’m done typing, which has already confused my sense of changing tense in this paragraph… We should still keep an eye out for overall health impact, including the frequency and severity of long haul symptoms. But the extremely good news is that the COVID-19 case count—not that it was ever measured correctly—has officially decoupled from the hospitalization and death counts. That’s okay—sometimes, during changes in functional outcomes, we care more about precision in measurement than accuracy.


And by “officially” I don’t mean that the WHO said so (though they might have…I haven’t bothered to check because why would I?), but rather “look at the charts!” In fact, there are almost no deaths at all associated with the omicron variant! Of course, there will be some. There is no such thing as a respiratory infection that doesn’t kill some of the frail elderly. But unless there is some facet of the omicron outbreak that we don’t yet understand, this is all extremely good news. In fact, it’s such good news that we should probably declare the pandemic over with and stop talking about vaccine mandates and passports altogether.

The Omicron Hypothesis, Part 2 (Crawford)

A quick summary of primary open hypotheses explored:

Hypothesis 1: Omicron has been circulating widely for at least several months.

Hypothesis 2: Omicron was genetically engineered—most likely by somebody in the same working group who engineered an mRNA vaccine to stop SARS-CoV-2.

Now, before we really get started again, some places (including those I mentioned in Part 1) where there is now a pandemic of the vaccinated.

United Kingdom: Vaccinated twice as likely to have omicron than unvaccinated
Leaked Dept. of Health memo warns efficacy falls to zero against omicron.
The Imperial College of London finds an increasing affinity among the vaccinated for omicron relative to delta that increases with the number of doses taken.

Will These People Be Charged With Genocide? (Mercola)

According to The Desert Review, a slew of high-power figures in the COVID-19 pandemic and the push to mandate experimental COVID jabs have been accused of several crimes, including crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression in the U.K.: “In a stunning 46-page legal filing2 to the International Criminal Court on December 6 [2021], an intrepid attorney and seven applicants accused Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak, Melinda Gates, William Gates III, and twelve others of numerous violations of the Nuremberg Code. These included various crimes against humanity and war crimes as defined by the Rome Statutes, Articles 6, 7, 8, 15, 21, and 53.”

The Dirty 16 In all, the 16 defendants named in the legal filing are:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIAID
Dr. Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance
Bill Gates
Melinda Gates
Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer
Stephane Bancel, CEO of Moderna
Pascal Soriot, CEO of AstraZeneca
Alex Gorsky, CEO of Johnson & Johnson
Tedros Adhanhom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO
Boris Johnson, U.K. prime minister
Christopher Whitty, U.K. chief medical adviser
Matthew Hancock, former U.K. secretary of state for Health and Social Care
Medicines and Healthcare, current U.K. secretary of state for Health and Social Care
June Raine, U.K. chief executive of Medicines and Healthcare products
Dr. Rajiv Shah, president of the Rockefeller Foundation
Klaus Schwab, president of the World Economic Forum

The victims, on behalf of whom the complaint was filed, are “the peoples of the United Kingdom.” One of the seven applicants is Dr. Michael Yeadon, a former vice president and chief scientist of allergy and respiratory research at Pfizer. At the end of 2020, he expressed deep concerns about the COVID jabs becoming mandatory, as he could find no medical rationale for their use. In 2021, as we all know, mandates were rolled out around the world. In April 2021, Yeadon went public with concerns that the shots were part of a depopulation agenda. “I believe [COVID-19 booster shots] are going to be used to damage your health and possibly kill you. I can see no sensible interpretation other than a serious attempt at mass depopulation,” he said in a “Planet Lockdown” interview published in late April 2021.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal located in The Hague, Netherlands. Its activities are governed by an international treaty called the Rome Statute, which has been ratified by more than 120 countries, including the U.S. The ICC is a permanent, independent court that investigates crimes that concern the international community, such as claims of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes of aggression. In theory, member states are supposed to cooperate with the court, but that doesn’t always happen.

Doctors trying to kill a patient. Why?

Wife Stands Off With Hospital to Keep Her Husband Alive, and Wins (ET)

Sentiments expressed in random phone calls for Anne Quiner as her husband Scott lay in a hospital bed breathing through a ventilator ranged from “I hope your husband dies a vegetable” followed by a litter of profanity, to “he should have taken the vaccine; I hope he dies,” before hanging up. While not the traditional Hallmark expressions for one to get well soon, Quiner said it was a feeling shared among some of the doctors at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, where Scott had been hospitalized for COVID-19 complications in November. In one recorded phone call with Dr. Linda Soucie in which Quiner was fighting to keep Scott on the ventilator, Soucie told Quiner, “Unfortunately, if we could turn back time and he had gotten the vaccine, then he wouldn’t be here,” just after Soucie had told Quiner,

“After three years, I think we’ve gotten pretty good at determining who’s going to make it and who’s not, and unfortunately Scott’s in that range of the group that is not going to make it.” In a recorded conference call, doctors told Quiner that they would be taking Scott off the ventilator on Jan. 13 because he would not recover due to what they said were his “destroyed lungs from COVID pneumonia,” and that their attempts at decreasing sedation only caused him pain. Quiner told The Epoch Times that her petitions for alternative treatments, as well as to keep Scott on the ventilator, had been met with contempt. With doctors determined to take Scott off the ventilator, Quiner sought legal counsel. Marjorie Holsten, Quiner’s attorney, told The Epoch Times that she filed a motion for a temporary restraining order that prevented the hospital from taking Scott off the ventilator.

Mercy Hospital then hired its own law firm that objected to the temporary restraining order on the basis that Holsten and Quiner’s position isn’t “supported by medical science.” Because of this, the hospital requested that the court issue an order authorizing the hospital to take Scott off the ventilator. The judge sided with Holsten, issuing the order based on the standard that irreparable harm would result if not issued, which Holsten said was easy to establish because if Scott had been taken off, he would have died. On Jan. 15, Scott was transferred out of Mercy Hospital and taken to an undisclosed hospital in Texas, where Holsten said the doctors have reported Scott to be malnourished, having lost 30 pounds underweight, and dehydrated. Both Holsten and Quiner said doctors in Texas were “horrified” by Scott’s condition when he arrived.

“One doctor said he didn’t know how Scott made it out of that hospital alive,” Quiner said. “He looked at his chart and said, ‘I can’t believe the heavy, sedating drugs they put him on.’” The hospital was following a rigid late-treatment COVID protocol that has “very likely killed many people,” Holsten said.

Jacinda Ardern Will Force Household Covid Contacts To Isolate For 24 Days (DM)

New Zealand will make household contacts of Covid cases isolate for 24 days under harsh new rules brought in to combat an impending Omicron outbreak. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has brought in the strict measures as the country battles to stay Covid Zero despite the threat of the highly contagious mutant strain. But critics say the lengthy quarantine period is ‘unworkable’ and will lead people to avoid getting tested. Anyone infected with Covid is now required to isolate for 14 days, up from 10 days under the new interim rules. Household contacts must then stay in quarantine for a further 10 days, stretching the time alone out to three and a half weeks.

The extension to isolation comes as New Zealand recorded 84 new Covid cases on Saturday, with 43 in the community and another 41 caught at the border. It includes an Auckland airport worker who tested positive for the omicron strain, sparking fears case numbers could soar up to 1500 a day or more if the mutant strain spreads across the nation. The NZ Ministry of Health said the changes were made after new scientific data published in Japan revealed the highly infectious strain has a longer incubation period than previous variants with sufferers also shedding the virus for longer. But Ardern’s critics warn the extreme policy is ‘unworkable’ and could lead to more Covid cases with greater number refusing to be tested in order to avoid the lengthy quarantine period.

‘The effect is that if you test positive, members of your household may have to isolate for 24 days,’ Act political party leader David Seymour told NZ’s Stuff. ‘People who cannot afford that will have a strong incentive not to get tested, defeating the purpose of the policy. ‘If the advice is taken seriously, it will cripple the health workforce and supply chains more generally.’

Mask Mandates Causing Over 350% Surge In Childhood Speech Delays (NP)

Mask mandates implemented by the government amidst the COVID-19 appear to be causing speech delays in young children. The regulations, which are still in effect in Democrat-led cities including Washington D.C. and New York City, have had adverse effects on the development of speaking abilities in children and babies. “This has been a very challenging year,” emphasized Jaclyn Theek, a clinic director and speech-language pathologist at the Speech and Learning Institute in North Palm Beach, Florida. The clinic experienced a 364 percent increase in patients who were babies and toddlers amidst the pandemic. Prior to the onset of COVID-19, only 5 percent of the clinic’s patients were in the age group, while today it stands at 20 percent.

“There’s no research out there yet saying that this could be causing speech and language delays. But, most definitely, I’m sure it’s a factor,” Theek said. “It’s very important that kids do see your face to learn, so they’re watching your mouth.” Similarly, many parents interviewed by WPBF 25 News felt the irregular speech patterns were “COVID-delayed.” A parent interviewed by the outlet attributed the delays to “social isolation and everyone wearing masks”: Gregg Santos brings his son, Diego, to speech therapy twice a week. “He would just ramble, baby ramble,” Santos said. “Certain words that are key did not flow, so that began to raise a red flag.” Santos said his son was born perfectly healthy at the start of a pandemic.

“We’d go out and walk around the neighborhood, and there would be no one there…everyone just stayed in,” Santos said. Santos said he believes social isolation and everyone wearing masks lead to Diego’s speech delays. “It bothers me,” Santos said. “It bothers me a lot.” “It definitely makes a difference when the world you are growing up in, you can’t interact with people and their face. That’s super important to babies,” cautioned another parent.

Jonathan Cook on being disappeared.

Is It Already Too Late To Say Goodbye? (Cook)

My blog posts once attracted tens of thousands of shares. Then, as the algorithms tightened, it became thousands. Now, as they throttle me further, shares can often be counted in the hundreds. “Going viral” is a distant memory. No, I won’t be banned. I will fade incrementally, like a small star in the night sky – one among millions – gradually eclipsed as its neighbouring suns grow ever bigger and brighter. I will disappear from view so slowly you won’t even notice. Which is why I am saying my goodbyes now while I can still reach you, my most obstinate followers. But this isn’t really about one small light being snuffed out. This isn’t just about our relationship coming to an end. Something bigger, and more disturbing, is taking place.

Journalists like me are part of an experiment – in a new, more democratised media landscape. We have developed new reader-funded models so that we can break free of the media corporations, which until now ensured billionaires and the state controlled the flow of information in one direction only: to speak down to us. The corporate media needs corporate advertising to survive – or the owners’ deep pockets. They don’t need you, except as a captive audience. You’re both their prisoner and their product. But the lifeblood of a reader-funded journalist, as the name suggests, are readers. The more of you we attract, the better chance there is that we can generate donations and income and make the model sustainable. Our Achilles’ heel is our dependence on social media to find you, to keep reaching you, to offer you an alternative from the corporate media.

If Facebook (sorry, the Meta universe) and Twitter stop independent writers from growing their readerships by manipulating the algorithms, by ghosting and shadow-banning us, and by all the other trickery we do not yet understand, then new voices cannot grow their funding base and break free of corporate control. And equally, for those like me who are already established and have significant numbers of readers, these tech giants can whittle them away one by one. Ostensibly, I have many tens of thousands of followers, but for several years now I have been reaching fewer and fewer of you. I am starved of connection. The danger, already only too obvious, is that my readership, and funding model, will slowly start to shrivel and die. Joe Rogan, Russell Brand and a handful of titans of the new media age are so big they can probably weather it out. But the rest of us will not be so lucky.

Acting out Orwell’s warnings.

University Slaps A Trigger Warning On George Orwell’s 1984 (DM)

As one of the greatest works in Britain’s literary canon, Nineteen Eighty-Four sounds a chilling warning about the dangers of censorship. Now staff at the University of Northampton have issued a trigger warning for George Orwell’s novel on the grounds that it contains ‘explicit material’ which some students may find ‘offensive and upsetting’. The advice, revealed following a Freedom of Information request by The Mail on Sunday, has infuriated critics, who say it runs contrary to the themes in the book. Published in 1949, Orwell’s dystopian story – set in a totalitarian state which persecutes individual thinking – gave the world phrases such as ‘Big Brother’, ‘Newspeak’ and ‘thought police’.

[It] makes powerful points about what can happen to a society that doesn’t cherish academic freedoms or its own history. Yet it is one of several literary works which have been flagged up to students at Northampton who are studying a module called Identity Under Construction. They are warned that the module ‘addresses challenging issues related to violence, gender, sexuality, class, race, abuses, sexual abuse, political ideas and offensive language’. In addition to Orwell’s book, academics identify several works in the module that have the potential to be ‘offensive and upsetting’ including the Samuel Beckett play Endgame, the graphic novel V For Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd and Jeanette Winterson’s Sexing The Cherry.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said: ‘There’s a certain irony that students are now being issued trigger warnings before reading Nineteen Eighty-Four. Our university campuses are fast becoming dystopian Big Brother zones where Newspeak is practised to diminish the range of intellectual thought and cancel speakers who don’t conform to it. ‘Too many of us – and nowhere is it more evident than our universities – have freely given up our rights to instead conform to a homogenised society governed by a liberal elite “protecting” us from ideas that they believe are too extreme for our sensibilities.’

@dimitrigalanis: “The current propaganda meme in Washington is that #Russia is going to “invade #Ukraine” and absorb it. It will not: Ukraine is a decaying, impoverished, de-industrialised, divided, corrupt and decaying mess; Moscow does not want to take responsibility for the package.”

The Hidden Origin Of The Escalating Ukraine-Russia Conflict (CD)

Western and Russian leaders and their media express deeply conflicting views concerning the escalating conflict in Ukraine and its origins. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and other officials have repeatedly blasted the Kremlin for instigating the crisis along Ukraine’s border in an attempt to carve out a sphere of influence. They argue that after the pro-Russian government of Viktor Yanukovych was ousted by peaceful protesters in 2014—dozens of whom were massacred by government snipers—Russia annexed Crimea and launched a hybrid war with Ukraine in the Donbas with the help of Russian proxies. Moreover, Western officials maintain that Ukraine is a sovereign state which has a right to join NATO. In contrast, Russian leaders insist that the Ukrainian government was overthrown in a fascist putsch, which led to Crimea voluntary joining Russia and to a civil war without Russian military involvement in the Donbas. They say that Ukraine has been under de facto NATO rule since 2014 and regard unrecognized separatist republics in the Donbas as independent.


Various evidence presented in studies I have authored, which has been echoed by many other Western scholars who research these issues, show that both of these narratives are inaccurate. Indeed, the question of which side carried out the “snipers’ massacre” is central to understanding one of the “bloodiest and most controversial hours of European conflict since the end of the Cold War,” and the main tipping point in the escalating conflict between the West and Russia over Ukraine. According to testimonies by over 100 wounded protesters, several dozen prosecution witnesses, and forensic ballistic and medical examinations by government experts, the massacre of the absolute majority of protesters and police at the Maidan (central square) in Kyiv on February 20, 2014 was perpetrated principally by members of the Maidan opposition, specifically its far-right elements. This event precipitated the violent removal of the corrupt and oligarchic but democratically elected government in Ukraine, touching off a conflict which has since killed more than 13,000 people. Western governments were at least aware of, or de facto backed, the overthrow.

The best we have. Gone.

German Navy Chief Resigns After Saying “Putin Deserves Respect” (ZH)

[..] the “Russia is about to invade Ukraine” plotline just suffered a major blow after the chief of Germany’s navy, vice-admiral Kay-Achim Schönbach , said on Friday that Crimea “will never come back”, and that what Putin “really wants is respect…and it is easy to give him the respect he really demands – and probably deserves.” And sure enough, just one day later, on Saturday evening, he resigned from his post for having the temerity to speak out against conventional wisdom. “I have asked Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht to relieve me from my duties with immediate effect,” Schoenbach said in a statement cited by the Reuters news agency. “The minister has accepted my request,” he added.

Speaking at an event organized by the Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses on Friday, the vice-admiral redpilled the shocked audience when he dismissed as “nonsense” the notion that Russia was “interested in having a small and tiny strip of Ukraine soil and integrating it into their country.” “Does Russia really want a small and tiny strip of Ukraine soil to integrate into their country? No, this is nonsense. Putin is probably putting pressure because can do it and he splits EU opinion.” Schönbach went on to claim that what President Putin really wanted was the West to “respect” Russia, adding “giving some respect is low cost, even no cost. If I was asked, it is easy to give him the respect he really demands and probably also deserves.” Addressing the issue of Crimea, the German Navy commander opined that the “peninsula is gone” and “will never come back — this is a fact.”

On Ukraine’s possible admission into NATO, Schönbach said, “Ukraine of course cannot meet the requirements because it’s occupied in the Donbas region by the Russian Army or by what they call as militias.” In this context, he also said the Crimea peninsula, which was annexed by Russia, is “gone” and is “not coming back”. Then in an even greater transgression of conventional pro-China etiquette, the German had the temerity to point out the elephant in the room when he slammed China which is “not that nice country we probably thought” and added that that “Russia is an old country, Russia is an important country. Even we India, Germany, need Russia. We need Russia against China…” This, he said, is “easy” and “keeps Russia away from China” because China needs resources of Russia and they [Russia] are willing to give them because the sanctions sometimes do go the “wrong way”.

Germany ‘Encouraging Putin’ By Refusing To Supply Weapons: Ukraine (Y!)

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Saturday condemned Germany for its refusal to supply weapons to Kyiv, urging Berlin to stop “undermining unity” and “encouraging Vladimir Putin” amid fears of a Russian invasion. In a separate development, Germany’s naval chief Kay-Achim Schoenbach announced his resignation late Saturday, after Ukraine summoned the German ambassador to Ukraine, to protest remarks the vice-admiral had made on the crisis. Kyiv’s foreign ministry stressed “the categorical unacceptability” of Schoenbach’s comments, who had said the idea that Russia wanted to invade Ukraine was “nonsense”, and that Putin probably deserved respect.


With tens of thousands of Russian troops gathered on the Ukrainian border, fears are mounting that a major conflict could break out in Europe. Ukraine’s calls to Western allies to bolster its defence capabilities have seen the United States, Britain and Baltic states agree to send to Kyiv weapons, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles. Kuleba said on Twitter that Germany’s statements “about the impossibility of supplying defence weapons to Ukraine” did not match “the current security situation”. Ukraine’s minister stressed that “today the unity of the West in relation to Russia is more important than ever. “The German partners must stop undermining unity with such words and actions and encouraging (Russian President) Vladimir Putin to launch a new attack on Ukraine,” Kuleba said.

    So, my only question is: When will this madness end??????????????
    Rhetorical of course…it won’t end…this is the boot stomping the face forever………

    The only other question is; when will the rest wake up to this ongoing insanity?
    Never is my guess…..

    …but the Ivan Aivazovsky Moonlight Reflecting On Water c1850 is forever a beautiful painting…

    “We have information that indicates the Russian Government is looking to install a pro-Russian leader in Kyiv as it considers whether to invade and occupy Ukraine.”

    Says a country that actually DID invade, install a pro-Western leader and occupies Ukraine to this day. …As usual. We had the same opinion of Shi’a in Iraq, Alawites in Syria, and Libyans in Libya. How did all these ethnic groups get into OUR new territory? – Just like their gas and oil.

    I swear, Russia is going to stop our new nations from being as successful as Afghanistan!

    Speaking of lying. NPR completely fabricated a story – for no reason anyone can discern – about a fight over masks between Supreme Court Justices. When the justices denied it in the strongest and clearest, unwavering terms, NPR refused to retract it. And still hasn’t.

    Question for these PMCs: Who do you think you’re fooling? Who on earth do you think you’re convincing?

    There isn’t a cogent thought in their whole heads. Like when they deny Joe Rogan, audience 15M (3 x 1 hour shows @5M/hour) with CNN, circulation…to low to be measured, but probably like 500k now, their top show for a single hour out of all 24.

    They’re really honestly mentally ill. There’s no other way to say it. Like a 5-year old with a toy microphone, they think if they speak into a paper towel roll they’re a reporter and everyone believes only them.

    Anyway, lying. Just for lying’s sake. Just ‘cause: lying. And when caught lying, lying more. When the whole network and 50 years of NPR “credibility” is then exposed to destruction, the editors…pick lying.

    Any questions? Saddam has weapons of mass destruction and ties to Al-qaeda. Mushroom clouds. Dominoes of Democracy. All NPR approved, every minute of every day since I was a child. Brought to you by Raytheon and the Ford Society, Bill and Melinda Gates.

    “a rally against Covid-19 vaccine mandates, a sign that the anti-vaccination movement that gained traction on social media”

    Okay, speaking of lies. So…the completely vaxxed anti-vaxxers, having almost certainly no less than a dozen vaccines each. Who are NOT against vaccines in the slightest, but vaccine MANDATES, and the problem isn’t the complete failure and collapse in FDA messaging, complete failure of every PMC program, complete spread of Covid everywhere and twice as much in every lockdown state, nor that they are merely and rather tepidly and placidly expressing their opinion in a legally-approved manner. No, the only reality is “Social Media”. If it’s on social media, it’s real and important, if as before, it’s happening in the real world, it’s false and unimportant. Twitter is my God, and I shall have no gods before thee. Sayeth PMCs safe at home in pajamas.

    “Activists who continue to find ways to spread false and misleading claims about the Covid vaccines,”

    Um, how does this happen when they’re saying the same thing for two years and the CDC has changed THEIR claims, NOT the protestors. CDC now says: 1) Vaccines don’t stop the spread. 2) Everybody’s going to get it. 3) Masks don’t work. 4) Vaccines don’t stop you from getting it. 5) Shutting down the economy hurts more than it helps. 6) We should protect the vulnerable instead.

    Since that is now the CDC “fact”, and the antivaxxers are on the same page with the same message, the “misinformation” now comes from? NBC apparently. NBC and this article are in direct opposition to the latest official CDC science. Them and only them. The people, CDC and Science are united in message, or converging. The media PMCs are the only “Deniers”.

    I’m getting a kick out of watching the same thing here in the comments. Now we’re all stupid and show how brainless knee-jerk contrarians we are because the CDC now agrees with everything we’ve been saying for like a year, or in my case, two years. While the “Science” guy, who’s being very strict and objective DISAGREES with the CDC, and agrees with… Actually I don’t know who at this point. Agrees with, believes, and is in line with articles 18 months obsolete? No lab leak? No funding? Masks worked great. Two weeks to stop the spread? It’s crazy to think they’d use that to grab more?

    And that’s hardly a conviction of us. We ALWAYS said the CDC and Pfizer were lying about everything and couldn’t be trusted. That they flip-flop again is totally in line with our beliefs and views. That demonstrates they have no science and never did. So that we now agree with them isn’t a conviction of US. Our position was generally consistent: this s—t doesn’t work. However, it seems entirely motivated by economic and political gain to the overwhelming harm of the people. They’re trying to find a way to weasel out of it now that the people have caught on, but NBC has their finger so far up their nose they haven’t got the memo, the lead-paint muncher of the media kids.

    Walensky and others had stated that the definition of being fully vaccinated would not change”

    Aaaaaaannd everyone was banned off of everywhere for saying this. Aaaaaaannd the CDC was lying. And the people were totally, completely right. The vaxxed “anti-vaxxers” were correct again. And again. And again. There is no vaccine passport. There is no vaccine mandate. It will not come some ridiculous 2, 3, 4, 20 shot thing to keep your freedoms.

    “Fauci, Walensky Dodge When Asked About Number Of Vaccine Deaths (WND)”

    Dore was all over this. So TWO YEARS later, you have Noooooooooo idea how many people were killed. At all. Not the slightest. And for what were you setting public policy all this time then? Can you GET us the numbers Ms. Walensky? Because U.K. is now suggesting 17k there, 1/100th of the headline. Meaning essentially NO ONE died.

    Duuuuuuuh…

    Now I don’t believe that either, certainly quite a few people died, but since they STOPPED REPORTING. And the ONLY certain number, the headline number, was THIS number, the number of grandmas Trump killed – but not Whitmer and Cuomo, and certainly not Biden – and the ONLY sure and perfect number you guys had for the last two years just went missing?

    So you have no idea. …If you have no idea, then can you tell me IF Covid existed AT ALL? Because if you’re not certain the number is 17k, maybe you’re not certain it’s 1k. I mean, you must have SOME number, amirite? That’s what “Science” is based on, amirite? And? So where’s your number?

    Poof! “And like that, poof. He’s gone.” The limp poofters of Science.

    Along with no numbers of who EVER had Covid, who EVER died from it, reporting now STOPPED nationwide on who has it in hospitals today. Not just relevant numbers, arguable about “With” or “From”, ALL NUMBERS STOPPED. We don’t wanna know.

    Because: Science! It’s what you have when you have no numbers, and the lack of all data is tippy-tippy top for Science. And medicine. NBC put their OTHER finger up their nose and got it stuck there and can’t figure out how to ask a question about THIS: science and reporting with NO NUMBERS.

    Which seems ever-so-slightly suspicious, doesn’t it? Science and medicine about the world’s largest and most important, deadliest pandemic ever with NO NUMBERS? If hospitals count them — which they will — we now put our fingers in our ears and refuse to write it down?

    “Mask Mandates Causing Over 350% Surge In Childhood Speech Delays (NP)”

    I’m sorry, did you kids say something? We PMC adults can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome we are.

    And P.S. the parent’s responsibility here? In a world they know is mad and a problem they know they have? “This is a job…for somebody else!” The government, I’m sure. Or Science. Or schools. Or science, only one thing I’m sure of, the responsibility for my children lies not with me.

    Since your first inquiry was rhetorical ….

    The only other question is; when will the rest wake up to this ongoing insanity?
    Never is my guess…..

    Awareness might occur when: Mathematics becomes a lingua franca in daily life; logic is understood; intelligence is appreciated and socially valued. ‘Never’ is a good approximation. As long as letters after one’s name suffice as ersatz accomplishment rather than the beginning of education, little drive to improve will happen. Just the way the cookie crumbled, the crumbs are rapidly being consumed by “Lord of the Flies” savages. YMMV

    DR. ASTRID STUCKELBERGER ON GRAPHENE OXIDE, PARASITES, AND TRANSISTORS, ETC.

    https://rumble.com/vsyoq0-dr.-astrid-stuckelberger-on-graphene-oxide-parasites-and-transistors-etc..html

    Dr Astrid Stuckelberger bio

    https://www.astridstuckelberger.com/bio/

    In an interview for CONUVIVE Mundial (United Nations World Council for Life and Truth), Dr. Astrid Stuckelberger talked about the findings made by her and several scientists around the world about the content of vaccines, mentioning from graphene oxide to parasites and biotechnology.
    
Graphene is targeting brain, we can see this from autopsies. Graphene delivers Prions in brain create CJD type illnesses.
    
Dr. Astrid Stuckelberger on graphene oxide, parasites, and transistors found in vaccines
    
https://www.orwell.city

    Dr Stuckelberger is a whistle blower

    She is explaining how the Clotshot contains highly toxic components starting with graphene oxide then actual live parasites, and nano transistors of some type.

    She says that the graphene oxide is the vehicle mechanism that helps and facilitates the spread of the spike protein to every part of the body.

    She says it’s a tossup as to whether the graphene oxide or the spike protein is more deadly.

    She says that the autopsies of dead sports figures show massive amount of blood clots that are so thick it can’t possibly be just the spike protein doing it, it’s the graphene oxide somehow. The clotting can be measured by D-Dimer tests.

    The graphene oxide and spike protein are acting as a combination to spread the toxic effect throughout the whole body, especially the brain.
    She said scientist in German with Reiner Fuellmich held a press conference with an electron microscope and put the ‘vaccine’ up under magnification to show high doses of graphene oxide in it for all the world to see. There was also a lot of metal, nickel and chromium in it that has no purpose being in a ‘vaccine’.

    They also found that the parasite found in the ‘vaccine’ was called Hydra Vulgaris and that at body temperature at activated and went out to spread through the body. It might be that the presence of Hydra Vulgaris in the shots is contamination in production and a quality control issue.

    Hydra Vulgaris has never been seen EVER in any book of medicine in history as being in an injection or vaccine. What’s it doing there?

    The last point she makes is the ’vaccines’ are actually some type of chemical intoxication or poisoning which then creates an infection or a heart attack.

    She said emphatically for vaccinated people to NOT EVER give blood because it is highly contaminated with graphene oxide and other nano particles.

    The vaccinated are spreading these particles quite easily.

    Interesting if the ‘narrative’ finally flips and the vaxed are the ones to avoid out of fear of them contaminating the unvaxxed.

    Two people merely holding hands, one vaxed and the other not, will contaminate the unvaccinated. The unvaxed after a short period of time of just holding hands with a vaxed person will test for a high D-Dimer test levels!

    The point is that the deaths are coming from a chemical poisoning agent/action more than from some biological/virus function.

    The Vaxed are able to spread the toxin agent easily through close contact. Like if you’re unvaxxed don’t sleep with someone who is taxed.

    You can get poisoned by them, not infected.

    The take away is that the Covid Plandemic is a chemical, mechanical poisoning event NOT a biological/virus one.

    The graphene oxide is working hand in glove with the spike protein, neither of which is ‘alive’ in any tradition sense.

    In the same way viruses are not really alive, but the general perception is that they are, graphene oxide and spike protein are molecules that don’t appear to be alive but seem to act in concert like they were alive, and they seem to spread ‘biologically’ but are not.

    NBC, supporting NPR on their pointless, ridiculous, double-down lie:
    https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/supreme-court-covid-mask-controversy-missing-point-ncna1287873

    “ Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the only member of the court to wear a mask during oral argument, no doubt because her Type 1 diabetes put her at greater risk for Covid-19.”

    ….Because they didn’t ask. Because this writer = reporter, therefore, allergic to phones and facts.

    Next problem, she wore a mask because she’s not vaccinated and is an anti-vaxxer? Or is it because vaccines don’t work? Because if they work, everyone on the Court is vaccinated, so there’s no risk. Unless she thinks vaccines don’t work. Gorsuch seems to believe his vaccines DO work. Go on.

    Is Sotomayor staying away from Gorsuch to protect herself from possible Covid exposure? And if so, why hasn’t he been more considerate of his colleague’s health?”

    I the reporter HAVEN’T THE FAINTEST IDEA, but am going to just assume – without asking anyone – that anything I make up in my head is true.

    So you don’t know Sotomayor, you don’t know Gorsuch, you don’t know the court, and you don’t know the reason. Got it. Must. Keep. Talking. If I don’t keep talking in stream-of-consciousness association the underpants elves will get me.

    “(Breyer stayed away because he had recently gotten a Covid test that turned out to be a false positive.)”

    So, “Tests don’t work.” Got it.

    The arrangement turned into a national controversy after National Public Radio reported that Sotomayor “did not feel safe in close proximity to people who were unmasked,”

    Yes, the NPR article that is widely considered to be completely false and denied by all justices. And again, Sotomayor did not feel safe because she believes vaccines don’t work. In contradiction to the (former) CDC.

    “Roberts soon issued his own statement, explaining that he “did not request Justice Gorsuch or any other Justice to wear a mask on the bench. …That may get Gorsuch off the hook for refusing a direct request,”

    It – MIGHT – get him off? Maybe? You mean because the statement was completely, categorically FALSE? Yes, when the accusation is false we generally let that person off. Says a Northwestern Lawyer who can’t understand the concept.

    The same cannot be said of Gorsuch. Even if he rejects the science behind the Centers for Disease Control”

    Gorsuch SUPPORTS the CDC, in that vaccines work. Sotomayor rejects the science of the CDC and says her vaccine does not work.

    Consideration for colleagues Obedience should be gracious, voluntary and unbidden.”

    Every word of every sentence, but we’re done here. NBC supports and reinforces the completely false, discredited report, and still desires punishment and censure for things that didn’t happen, never happened, and never will happen. Because ‘Gorsuch”. Who hasn’t followed the law or Constitution in his life and votes liberal most of the time like the other Justices.

    “It’s good to know that Gorsuch and Sotomayor remain colleagues and warm friends.” –NBC

    Because like other PMC Karens, you have to be offended ON BEHALF of minorities, because minorities are too weak, stupid, and helpless to take up their own battles and need mommy to help them always. Correct, white guy Steven Lubet? Gotta help out that decade-long Supreme Court Justice. She’s not a REAL Supreme Court Justice but a colored stand-in who needs your help!

    So a two-fer. Not only supporting NPRs false statement AFTER everyone knows it’s false, but racist and sexist too! Gooooooo TEAM!

    My favorite quote from the vaccinator Twitter feed.

    “The moment someone says, “If the vaccines work, how come so many vaccinated people are getting COVID?”— you know they don’t understand or care how vaccines work.”

    Eric Topple claims to know how they work but speaks with forked tongue. He laments the lack of quality data yet continues to push the vax based on this data.

    Virus time: Jan 18th, 2022 (5 days ago)

    https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abo1074

    For one, managing a public health crisis requires a navigational system based as closely as possible on real-time capture, analytics, and sharing of essential and relevant information. But during the Omicron wave, we haven’t a clue as to whether and to what extent hospitalizations are being prevented by vaccinations and boosters. The president and leading members of public health agencies have made numerous statements and public appearances throughout the pandemic, but not a single word has been uttered about fixing the profoundly deficient data systems. In May 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared that there would be close tracking of all hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated. That never happened, though not because of the CDC.

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), led by Secretary Xavier Becerra, has chosen to avoid mandating that data be collected. Is this unwillingness a reaction to fear of political backlash? Amid an ongoing public health crisis, this inaction is unacceptable.

    Like Topple, Bacerra is probably another clueless member of the cult of vaccinators. There is a donut hole in data, statisticians around the globe have unpacked it and come to different conclusions. This seems likely.

    https://rumble.com/vt2ktg-uk-statisticians-find-massive-death-spike-during-covid-vaccine-campaigns.html

    From Topple’s substack

    Virus time: Yesterday

    Now let’s turn to hospitalizations where the data are extraordinary, consistent, potent protection, and by all we have to go on, very durable. There are 3 reports: the UKHSA, the Kaiser Permanente Southern California, and the new CDC MMWR as summarized in this Table. It is exceptionally rare to see such consistency in triplicate—88, 89, and 90 for booster effectiveness vs Omicron. That is substantially improved compared with 2 shots (44-68%). And, importantly, it appears to be quite durable (83-90%) after 3 months, an attrition level fully in keeping with what we have seen over time with the Delta variant. As I previously wrote, We’re very lucky. Damn lucky.

    The deal with mediawhores like NPR and NBC is that with UNLIMITED ‘money’ printing, the presstitutes can be bailed out indefinitely, ad infinitum.

    So they don’t need audiences, they’re just tarts turning tricks.

    Pravda on the Potomac.

    Keeping MSMediawhores propped up like dead hookers is just the cost of doing ‘business’ in the USSA.

    And since ‘They’ can print unlimited amounts of ‘money’, ‘They’ can bribe anyone 24/7/365.

    ‘They’ are printing so much ‘money’ at this point, it’s equal to the amount of taxes that are being collected.

    You don’t need tax ‘money’ from the peasants, taxes are a control grid to threaten and terrorize the Sheeple, ‘They’ could just print the same amount of ‘money’ as ‘They’ collect in taxes.

    Just when we thought omicron was going to be in our rear view mirror, there is now a BA.2 variant emerging. Early days.

    https://igorchudov.substack.com/p/ba2-omicron-variant-is-worth-discussing

    The most disturbing issue here is that even by the time before BA.2 took off in Denmark a week ago, Denmark was likely running out of Covid-naive, uninfected people. What this means is that possibly, BA2 is especially good at REINFECTING Danes and Frenchmen. Not sure if the vaccinated people are more susceptible to reinfection, but it is possible and always seemed to be the case even before Omicron.

    I’m still very skeptical about this theory that the deflated one is an AI or a state actor of some kind. But if I did think that, I would probably be inclined to suspect that they are in fact a professional troll of the Russian variety. The thing about Russian “active measures” trolls is that they do not necessarily seek to promote viewpoints that are friendly to the current regime in Moscow. Rather, they promote multiple positions and attitudes depending on the context in order to foster maximum divisiveness.

    Deflationista’s brand of trolling is so ham-fisted and unconvincing, yet just antagonistic enough, that if somebody other than the deflationista of yesteryear were posting from that account, I would really think it was somebody with the motive of making the regulars and lurkers of TAE more hardened and militant in our views. Since it’s a lot more likely that they are just a very well-mind-controlled denizen of the mainstream authoritarian left, they can take “comfort” in knowing that they are doing Vlad Putin’s work for him!

    Imagine not only actually thinking this, but then taking the time to post it. Mass formation psychosis.

    The lack of accurate data shared with the Sheeple from the beginning of the Plandemic was a feature, not an oversight.

    Autopsies, how do you know a certain number weren’t being done and the data collected?

    You don’t.

    How do you know the adverse affects weren’t being tracked carefully by batch number to see which vax formulations produced the most damage?

    You don’t.

    How do you know the amount of payoffs to hospitals to snuff Sheeple by ventilator and Remdesivir (Run-death-is near) ?

    Surprise, you don’t.

    Doesn’t mean it wasn’t monitored carefully.

    Accurate data was collected, and it’s worth it’s weight in gold (or Bitcoin)

    That data exists but only for a chosen few, and like George Carlin said,” It’s a small club and you are not in it.”

    The accurate data was collected and is NOT being shared because it provides the course correction for the next try at Medical Tyranny but at a higher level of success.

    Sure the current ‘narrative’ is decomposing like dead road kill on a hot summer day, but so what?

    “They” always come back for another run.

    “They” have nothing to fear or stop them from retrying.

    “They” own the courts, the judges, academia, media, finance, food production, etc….

    “They” will throw the legions of Quislings under the bus for now, there’s an unlimited supply of brown nosing ass kissers in this world to replace them.

    Unlimited, stretching to the vanishing point in fact, historically there always has been and will be.

    And the bottom line is the total destruction of society:

    Oh, and believing that the Packers lost the big game yesterday because Aaron Rodgers wouldn’t take the Holy Sacred Vaccine isn’t a symptom of mass formation psychosis, or at least quasi-religious delusion?

    This guy is on a roll. I love the way he manages to imply that the vaccine passports are reminiscent of Nazi times without actually saying it. Good job Ursi has a mask to hide her toothbrush moustache behind.

    “The mantra they have pressed on us is “safe and effective,” which I think of as the new “Sieg Heil.”

    “Safe and effective” is more than a propaganda mantra, those exact words are actually a legal requirement in the US. If a vaxx fails to be “safe and effective,” the approval license is supposed to be revoked.

    § 601.5 Revocation of license…

    UKRAINE

    There are claims that UK specialist forces are training Ukrainians in sabotage. The idea is that they would destroy critical infrastructure in the Donbass. There are also claims that the US is bringing in unspecified chemicals to the Donbass.

    Given the US comments on a Russian ‘false flag’ operation I assume the plan is to attack the Donbass and blame it on Russia as a false flag operation.

    Although it would be seen as a reason for Russia to invade to protect Donbass they could simply use missiles to destroy infrastructure around Kiev.

    However Ukraine is just a pawn. If Russia wants to escalate and ‘lance the boil’ then attacking NATO or US forces would be very high risk. They could single out the UK and hold them totally responsible for everything that happens in Donbass and punish them.

    It would send a strong signal to NATO that Russia is serious. NATO would have to think long and hard about any response. The UK itself would not be attacked so really NATO has no cause to invoke the mutual defense treaty.

    My thoughts on omicron ba.2 and the “bad” vaccine lots…
    It looks to me like an ongoing “mad” science experiment.
    Both the virus and vaccines are being trialed on a wide scale to figure out how to accomplish specific end-goals.
    We don’t know exactly what the end goals are.
    – Population reduction? – We know that there are powerful players who support population reduction. If that is the purpose, it is a long game, not a short game. And, if so, then it is interesting that Biden (and other prominents) were given “the real deal,” supposedly even taking their chances with the roulette of bad lots. It may be that the goal is not death, per se, but calibration with death being an acceptable outcome as techniques and knowledge are fine-tuned.
    – Transhumanism? – Getting human “wet-ware” to interface with hardware and software is a, hmprm, monumental challenge. If it is too dangerous to trial out officially, the virus and vaccine are an effective way to do it.
    – Targeted genocide? – similar to the idea behind the transhuman agenda, calibrating virus/vaccine to target specific populations — targeted genocide that would appear random or as an act of god.
    – Fertility reduction/sterility – This could be a corollary end goal, however, it doesn’t look (from the data) to be the primary or sole end goal. It could be one of many outcomes that is being studied. I’m sure the official narrative would pin culpability on the virus.
    – Population control, “mind control” – Much of the population has fallen for this. It is telling how it is only now, about 2 years into the pandemic, that omicron ba.1 and omicron ba.2 have been released. The world population wearied of the pandemic and have been conditioned to believe that there will be an endless series of variants — so now parallel viruses are released and most folks are too weary to do the research necessary to find the scientists shouting from the rooftops that these are not child variants, but siblings, their voices drowned out in the cacophony of the TNI. Can TPTB get away with this sleight of hand? Probably. Tower 7 fell without being hit by a plane, looking like a controlled demolition, but the official narrative is seldom examined, left in the dustbin with yesterday’s news.

    However, if the pandemic IS a mad science experiment of some sort, that means that SOMEWHERE, SOMEBODY (somebodies) is gathering and keeping meticulous records of the “variants,” vaccine lots, and the population outcomes. That data needs to be brought to light.

    From Dmitry Orlov’s piece at the Saker from 1-21-22 in the comment section answering someone

    A Short-Term Geopolitical Forecast

    ” Dmitry Orlov on January 21, 2022 · at 4:19 pm EST/EDT

    Another poor victim who thinks that the Ukraine is somehow important.

    It isn’t.

    None of this has to do with the Ukraine. The problem is with the US/NATO posing a threat to Russian security.

    What is critical for Russia is to make sure that the Ukraine remains Europe’s problem, forever.

    It has over a dozen nuclear reactors that the Europeans will have to pay to dismantle—and that’s just a start.

    They will also have to absorb an influx of several million Ukrainian economic refugees at that economy falls apart.

    They will have to provide humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian population in order to limit the extent of a Ukrainian crime wave pouring across EU’s borders.

    Meanwhile, the Russians will simply look the other way because the Ukraine will be Somebody Else’s Problem.

    Russia doesn’t need the land in the Ukraine, it almost has too much land for it’s population already.

    Russia doesn’t need the food from the Ukraine, it has so much already it exports it.

    Russia doesn’t need 12 decomposing nuclear reactors, remember Chernobyl?

    Russia doesn’t need the ‘leftovers’ of Ukrainian citizenns, the best of them already immigrated to Russia and are productive citizens.

    Russia doesn’t need the crime and lawlessness of the failed state of the Fake ‘nation’ of the Ukraine.

    Russia needs nothing from the failed state of the Fake failed ‘nation’ of the Ukraine, it’s the Typhoid Mary of eastern Europe.

    Let it contaminate the EU

    John Helmer’s analysis of Blinken – Lavrov 90 minutes meeting in Geneva:

    CONTENT ANALYSIS OF SECRETARY BLINKEN AT GENEVA REVEALS PSYCHOPATHOLICAL INCAPACITY TO NEGOTIATE WITH RUSSIA

    CONTENT ANALYSIS OF SECRETARY BLINKEN AT GENEVA REVEALS PSYCHOPATHOLICAL INCAPACITY TO NEGOTIATE WITH RUSSIA

    US Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed publicly in Geneva on Friday, January 21, that he will not negotiate a no-war agreement with the Russians because he cannot. This is already understood by the Russians; by the French and Germans; and by several senior officials of the Biden Administration. […]

    … When the RAND method is used to analyze what Blinken told the US press, following his meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, it is revealed that Blinken has no intention whatever of negotiating a non-aggression pact with the Russians on any terms. According to the scientific method devised by the best and brightest Americans for dealing with their enemies, it’s now clear from Blinken’s own words that he is unable to understand what Russians tell him. In the mind behind the words there is only one compulsive idea – attack, punish, destroy Russia. […]

    … Tested in two hot wars, and during the Cold War, the RAND method for gauging the intention of the adversary predicts this about Blinken – he wants war with Russia; he has no mind for any alternative.

    … fwiw,

    F.S.
