“Nurses turned so cynical about the remdesivir protocol that they nicknamed it “run-death-is-near.”

Crimes against Our Country (Jim Kunstler)

The year of sickening global psychosis ended with virologist and vaccine-uberspecialist Dr. Robert Malone truth-bombing the Internet with three hours of straight talk about the US health authorities’ campaign to destroy the lives of at least half a million US citizens (so far) and, leading by example, to harm multiples of that number of innocent people across all of Western Civilization. Podcaster Joe Rogan assisted skillfully in an interview that is finally rocking the world out of an epic consensus trance. By health authorities I don’t just mean Dr. Anthony Fauci, the designated National SARS-CoV-2 Coordinator, or his accomplices in the Dept. of Health and Human Services agencies, CDC, NIH, NIAID, etc., but also the purblind US medical establishment of actual doctors in clinical practice, researchers, hospital administrators, and pharma executives who acted with a collective stupid malevolence not seen since the crematory-stuffers of the Nazi bureaucracy carried out their final solution.

We know what you did. You engineered and patented a gain-of-function virus at the same time you conspired with pharma companies to devise and patent pseudo-vaccines, and then you loosed both of them on the public. You didn’t just fail to adequately test the “vaccines” cooked up by Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, but you deliberately botched the trials and lied about it. You created rich $$ incentives for hospitals to mis-treat Covid patients by failing to use known, safe, effective anti-virals. You conspired with social and news media to suppress information about those common anti-viral drugs that would have informed many patients’ decisions and saved thousands of lives. You treated late-stage patients dying of Covid-induced vascular disorder with the ineffective and toxic drug remdesivir that Dr. Fauci had developed unsuccessfully for an ebola outbreak years ago. (Nurses turned so cynical about the remdesivir protocol that they nicknamed it “run-death-is-near.”) You prompted government officials to lockdown society, force useless masking, and now to coerce “vaccination” by threatening to deprive citizens of their livelihoods.

The US Supreme Court will entertain arguments this Friday, January 7, to enjoin against “Joe Biden’s” mandates to coerce “vaccination” in companies that employ more than a hundred people and a separate mandate forcing vaxxes on staff at Medicare / Medicaid certified “providers” (meaning most hospitals and doctors’ offices). There’s a pretty good chance the court will decide against the mandates. They’re expected to rule Monday, January 10, the day that the mandates are supposed to take effect.

German government report after update/correction.

Vaccinated Over 21 Times More Likely To Get Omicron (NP)

Nearly 80 percent of reported cases of the Omicron COVID-19 variant in Germany occurred in fully vaccinated individuals, according to a new report from the federal government. [Note: This article has been updated following an error by the German federal government]. Following publication, the Robert Koch Institute issued a revision to the report’s figures documenting transmission of the Omicron variant. 1,097 unvaccinated people and 4,020 vaccinated people now comprise the cohort analyzed in the paper. This new data still shows that the overwhelming majority – 78.6 percent – of cases occurred in vaccinated people. The paper – published December 30th by the German agency the ‘Robert Koch Institute’ – included information on the vaccination status of 4,206 individuals who contracted the latest variant of the virus.


Four thousand and twenty people who reported contracting Omicron in the study – which equates to 95.6 percent of total cases – had received at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccines. The revised data from the German government revealed a 78.6 percent vaccinated rate of Omicron cases. Originally, only 186 people contracting Omicron were unvaccinated in the entire sample, showing that vaccinated individuals were over 21 times as likely to contract the COVID-19 variant. The new RKI numbers reported 1,097 unvaccinated people, meaning the vaccinated were 3.7 times more likely to contract the variant.

The guidance changes now come every day and twice on Sundays.

CDC Is Set To Update Its Guidance ‘Any Day Now’ To Include Negative Tests (DM)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is expected to further change its recommendations for Americans diagnosed with COVID-19, potentially requiring a negative test to leave isolation before ten days. Last week, the agency shortened its recommended isolation period from 10 days to five days for people who have minimal Covid symptoms. The move drew criticism from experts who said a negative test should’ve been included. But the CDC is now considering adding a negative test to the guidance, according to CNN. Surgeon General Dr Vivek Murthy said that the CDC is working to further revise the isolation guidance, telling CNN on Tuesday that he expects a clarification ‘any day now.’

‘What they’re trying to do – and it’s important to say more broadly – is recognize and incorporate both the evolving science on Omicron and on prior variants in terms of how long somebody remains contagious, with the critical need to maintain essential services,’ Murthy told CNN. ‘I believe that there will be a role for antigen testing here to help reduce risk as well,’ he said. The further-updated guidance could impact millions of Americans, as the country reports record case numbers during the Omicron surge. About 95 percent of all new Covid cases in the U.S. were caused by Omicron in the week ending January 1, according to new CDC data released on Tuesday.

[..] ‘Isolation’ means a period of several days or weeks in which someone sick with Covid stays home and avoids contact with other people. This is distinct from quarantine, in which someone avoids contact with other people after a potential exposure to the coronavirus and closely monitors themselves for symptoms. Early on in the pandemic, the CDC recommended isolation and quarantine periods of 14 days. That period was shortened to 10 days in late 2020, as scientists learned more about how the virus spreads and how people recover. Then, last week, the CDC shortened isolation periods further: to just five days. The new guidance comes with some caveats, however. Someone diagnosed with Covid can only leave isolation after five days if they don’t have symptoms or if their symptoms are close to over – including no fever for at least 24 hours. After that, the Covid patient must wear a mask whenever they’re around others, the CDC says.

Stephen Colbert? Joe Rogan should be the interviewer.

CDC Director Walensky Flip-Flops On PCR Testing Guidance (ZH)

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky appeared to majorly waffle on her agency’s controversial guidance to eliminate PCR testing at the end of Covid-19 isolation because the tests can remain positive for up to 12 weeks, long after a person is no longer contagious. “The big CDC news,” said Late Show host Stephen Colbert, is that “y’all have now gone from recommending a 10-day isolation to a five-day isolation. Why the change?” To which Walensky replied that “probably about 80 to 90 percent of your transmissibility has happened in those first five days,” right before and after symptoms appear, “and we really want people to be sure if they’re gonna be home, they’re going to be home for the right period of time, when they’re maximally transmissible.” Colbert then hinted at discord within the Biden administration after Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested the CDC guidance may shift yet again.

“In the UK they went from ten to seven days, but they are also recommending a negative test before considering yourself out of quarantine. Are we going to do that here? Because Dr. Fauci on CNN and ABC suggested that that’s under consideration. Is he talkin’ out both sides of his mouth over there, and you guys are telling him ‘put a cork in it, Tony!'” Walensky’s answer, while confusing, appeared to contradict her agency’s new guidelines. “Deepest respect for Dr. Fauci,” Walensky replied. “Obviously, yes. Really important question. The FDA has authorized these tests, and they’re terrific tests for what they’re authorized for. So the FDA has authorized them for diagnosis, and what they said about these tests is they are best for diagnosis earlier in the disease course.

“Are these the rapid antigen test?” asked Colbert. “Yes. So if you have access to a test. And you want to do a test at day five. And your symptoms are gone and you’re feeling well, then go ahead and do that test. But here’s how I would interpret that test. If it’s positive, stay home for another five days. If it’s negative, I would stay you still really need to wear a mask. You still may have some transmissibility ahead of you. You still should try not to visit grandma. You shouldn’t get on an airplane. You should still be pretty careful when you’re with other people – by wearing a mask all the time.”

“OneAmerica provided no explanation for the rise in deaths and said it was not aware of any studies being conducted by the CDC.”

Chilling Pandemic Data from the Insurance Industry (Rescue)

An Indiana-based life insurance company is expressing concern over a substantial rise in deaths in adults eighteen to sixty-four years old in 2021 that cannot be explained simply by covid infections themselves. In a statement issued to me Tuesday evening, January 4, the OneAmerica group of financial companies, a $100 billion insurance company headquartered in Indianapolis since 1877, said: “Our data shows an increase in death rates in our business across the U.S., which aligns with what we’re seeing in national industry data.” Citing its analysis of figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the statement said: “there has been a 40% increase in death rates for 18- to 64-year-old individuals across the U.S., when comparing Q3 [third quarter] 2021 data to pre-pandemic data from the same period in 2019.”

That stunning conclusion is all the more concerning because it covers an age group that is not the hardest hit by covid-19 and which accounts for 25 percent of covid deaths. Moreover, the trend covers all causes of death, suggesting that the pandemic has led to mortality in a variety of ways. A graphic prepared by OneAmerica depicts the trend with a black line rising sharply from last July to last September, the latest available numbers. “CDC data from Q3 [third quarter] 2021 shows 250,000 actual deaths (or a 45% increase over the baseline expectation) for this age group, typically the working age population. Of that total, 50,600 were attributed by the CDC to COVID.”

The company’s statement was in response to my request for its comment on an article Saturday, January 1, in The Center Square, which first reported comments by the company’s CEO Scott Davison on the alarming trend in deaths. “We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business—not just at OneAmerica,” Davison said during an online news conference, according to the article. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.” He characterized the trend in deaths in “huge, huge numbers” among people working in companies that offer life insurance plans to their employees, the article stated. He said further that the trend was continuing into the fourth quarter of 2021.

I shared the OneAmerica statement with Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology on which covid vaccines are based. He said in a phone conversation that the rise in deaths was “absolutely unprecedented, shocking, and raises serious major concerns.” The figures, he said, point to the consequences of a failed approach to the pandemic. “At a minimum, based on my reading” of The Center Square article, Malone wrote on his Substack publication Monday, “one has to conclude that if this report holds and is confirmed by others in the dry world of life insurance actuaries, we have both a huge human tragedy and a profound public policy failure of the US Government and US HHS system to serve and protect the citizens that pay for this “service”.”

Steve Kirsch on that same OneAmerica report. “It isn’t COVID. Could it be the “safe and effective” COVID vaccine?”

Unprecedented: Deaths In Indiana For Ages 18-64 Are Up 40% (Kirsch)

This is huge. Something is killing healthy people at an unprecedented rate. It isn’t COVID. Could it be the “safe and effective” COVID vaccine? I think so. Here’s why. [..]

  1. These deaths started only after the vaccines rolled out
  2. The deaths are “primarily working-age people 18 to 64” who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica. That’s not to say 65 and over aren’t affected as well. What’s key is that we’re seeing effects in young people.
  3. There are more excess deaths than anytime in history, so it is likely caused by a new threat, never seen before in history, like a novel vaccine that has never been used before or something new like that that a huge number of people would be exposed to (such as by a state that pushes vaccination).
  4. Not due to COVID (COVID deaths are way down).
  5. They are dying from a variety of causes, not just a single cause. So this rules out food or air-based pathogens. I note that the variety of causes of death is consistent with the wide range of adverse events caused by the COVID vaccines, for example.
  6. It has to affect massive numbers of people to get an effect size that high. So it is something new affecting at least half the population, like a new mandated vaccine for example.
  7. There is a huge push for vaccines by the Indiana governor, he wants to have everyone vaccinated. Interesting. “Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb doubled down on the drive to get everyone in the state vaccinated.”
  8. Useful fact: Adults 65 and older account for 16% of the US population but 80% of COVID-19 deaths in the US, somewhat higher than their share of deaths from all causes (75%) over the same period. We’ll use that 75% stat later.
  9. It isn’t just the one life insurance company, they are all seeing this huge rises at other insurance companies. So this is something huge and national in scope, like a vaccine mandate in the entire US, or something like that.
  10. “Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.” This suggests it has to be a novel pathogen (like a novel vaccine, for example). It has to be something first introduced in 2021, you know, like a new COVID vaccine.
  11. The company is seeing an “uptick” in disability claims, saying at first it was short-term disability claims, and now the increase is in long-term disability claims. So whatever it is is killing people and those that aren’t killed are disabled. You know, like what the COVID vaccines are proven to do (since I believe VAERS).
  12. Brian Tabor, the president of the Indiana Hospital Association, said that hospitals across the state are being flooded with patients “with many different conditions,” saying “unfortunately, the average Hoosiers’ health has declined during the pandemic.” In a follow-up call, he said he did not have a breakdown showing why so many people in the state are being hospitalized – for what conditions or ailments. But he said the extraordinarily high death rate quoted by Davison matched what hospitals in the state are seeing. So this could all be caused by the COVID vaccines.
  13. The number of hospitalizations in the state is now higher than before the COVID-19 vaccine was introduced a year ago, and in fact is higher than it’s been in the past five years, Dr. Lindsay Weaver, Indiana’s chief medical officer, said at a news conference with Gov. Eric Holcomb on Wednesday. So again, whatever is killing people is worse than COVID. It can’t be COVID since we have so many vaccinated people with our safe and effective vaccine that prevents COVID deaths.
  14. The CEO of the insurance company doesn’t think the vaccines are causing the deaths and disability. Check out this tweet: he is requiring his employees to be vaccinated! So it cannot be the vaccine, even though it fits all the facts! Darn! The CEO knows that the vaccines are safe and effective. He has no evidence to back that statement up, but we should believe him since he’s an authority figure (you know, like the CDC). We can always trust authority figures, and even more so when they have no evidence. Who needs evidence? Science has been displaced in 2021.

Little Napoleon says 10% are unvaxxed. Having gone through these numbers for a year now, I bet almost every country has one third unvaxxed. In the US, it’s 40%.

Macron No Longer Views Unvaxxed as French: ‘Piss Them Off’ and ‘Reduce’ Them (NF)

French President Emmanuel Macron told one of the nation’s leading newspapers that he no longer considers the unvaccinated to be French citizens, and that his primary COVID-19 strategy is to continue to “piss them off” until they submit to his COVID-19 mandates. The remark from Macron, delivered during an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien, has divided French politicians, and even has the country’s Communist Party candidate questioning Macron’s motives. “I am not about pissing off the French people,” Macron told the readers of Le Parisien on Tuesday. “But as for the non-vaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And we will continue to do this, to the end. This is the strategy.”


He declared that the “worst enemies” of “democracy” are “lies and stupidity,” then declared that his government is “putting pressure on the unvaccinated by limiting, as much as possible, their access to activities in social life.” Macron’s government claims that 90% of its citizens are vaccinated. He promised to “reduce” this minority with further restrictions. The French president repeatedly noted the minority status of the resisters. “How do we reduce that minority?” Macron asked, rhetorically. “We reduce it – sorry for the expression – by pissing them off even more.” The fallout from his remarks led the French Parliament to come to a screeching halt as it attempted to debate an expansion of the country’s vaccine passport system.

“A third dose provides SOME protection in the immediate term, but substantially less than against Delta..”

Effectiveness of COVID-19 Vaccines Against Omicron Or Delta Infection (medRxiv)

The incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection, including among those who have received 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines, has increased substantially since Omicron was first identified in the province of Ontario, Canada.

Methods Applying the test-negative design to linked provincial data, we estimated vaccine effectiveness against infection (irrespective of symptoms or severity) caused by Omicron or Delta between November 22 and December 19, 2021. We included individuals who had received at least 2 COVID-19 vaccine doses (with at least 1 mRNA vaccine dose for the primary series) and used multivariable logistic regression to estimate the effectiveness of two or three doses by time since the latest dose.

Results We included 3,442 Omicron-positive cases, 9,201 Delta-positive cases, and 471,545 test-negative controls. After 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, vaccine effectiveness against Delta infection declined steadily over time but recovered to 93% (95%CI, 92-94%) ≥7 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine for the third dose. In contrast, receipt of 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines was not protective against Omicron. Vaccine effectiveness against Omicron was 37% (95%CI, 19-50%) ≥7 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine for the third dose.

Conclusions Two doses of COVID-19 vaccines are unlikely to protect against infection by Omicron. A third dose provides some protection in the immediate term, but substantially less than against Delta. Our results may be confounded by behaviours that we were unable to account for in our analyses. Further research is needed to examine protection against severe outcomes.

“This garbage has directly led to over half a million dead Americans and it is our fault for allowing it to go on..”

The ‘Find Your Balls’ Challenge (Denninger)

We are all currently being forced to be lab rats to some degree when it comes to *****-19, and that force is in some areas and cases being literally enforced at gunpoint, such as in NYC with “******* mandates” where cops are literally arresting people and thus, by definition, threatening the use of deadly force to compel compliance. Pilots have been coerced by their employers to take a drug that under FAA regulations immediately and conclusively voids their medical certificate, yet they are also continuing to fly. The liability for such is wildly open-ended for everyone involved yet nobody cares. Nearly two years into this crap our local county medical center has actually doubled or more the fatality rate for *****-19 admissions, now standing at over 90% fatality for the last six months of 2021, begging the question as to why, if I had needed to go to the hospital during that time when I got ***** in August, I should not have shown up there and killed everyone I could by whatever means I could obtain since they were, with more than 90% certainty, going to kill me.


We have sat for all of this and we must conclusively stop it. This garbage has directly led to over half a million dead Americans and it is our fault for allowing it to go on for the last two years under both Trump and Biden administrations Until and unless we do put a conclusive stop to this crap there is exactly nothing you can do to change my mind in terms of my opinion related to the medical industry and everyone in it who is taking home a paycheck, in many cases a very large paycheck, as a direct result of a corporate and government-run set of decisions that are killing people wholesale by deliberately refusing to treat conditions we know how to handle and have known how to treat for decades, never mind the evidence for early treatment that has emerged over the last two years and has been ignored along with the exhortation to take what has proved up over time, and which I fully expected and explained why, to be worthless or even harmful jabs.

More contagious, less lethal. It’s the only path left. “Cases” will go up for 2-3 weeks per location, then plummet. Deaths will start to fall after that.

And remember, deaths from Omicron are non-existent. It’s all still Delta, as Omicron grows.

French Covid Variant Is Not ‘Worth Worrying About’, Predates Omicron (DM)

A new Covid variant detected in France is not worth worrying about, experts have insisted. Virologists say the strain predates Omicron but has yet to cause chaos, bolstering hopes that it may fade into the background. At least 12 cases of B.1.640.2 have been spotted so far near Marseille, with the first linked to travel to the African country Cameroon. But it is not outcompeting the dominant Omicron variant, which now makes up 60 per cent of all infections in France. Dr Thomas Peacock, a virologist at Imperial College London, said the variant has had ‘a decent chance to cause trouble but never really materialised’.


The strain was first uploaded to variant-tracking database GISAID on November 4, more than two weeks before Omicron was sequenced. More than 120,000 cases of Omicron have been detected since officials first raised the alarm about the ultra-infectious variant. For comparison, only 12 cases of B.1.640.2 have been spotted. But the true toll may be closer to 20, data suggests. ‘This virus has had a decent chance to cause trouble but never really materialised as far as we can tell’, Dr Peacock said. So it is definitely ‘not one worth worrying about too much’ at the moment, he added.

Don’t let Fauci hear it.

White Blood Cells Of Immune System Can Fight Omicron (GBN)

A new study has revealed that the white blood cells of the immune system are capable of mounting an immune response against the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Due to Omicron having a higher number of mutations than other Covid variants, it can sometimes slip past the antibodies created by vaccination or infection. However, if the virus still does enter the body, the white blood cells, known as T-cells, will attack. The new research, from the University of Melbourne and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), involved investigators analysing over 1,500 fragments of SARS-CoV-2’s viral proteins – called epitopes – that have been found to be recognised by T-cells in recovered Covid-19 patients or after vaccination.


The team’s findings, published in the peer-reviewed journal Viruses, suggest Omicron is unlikely to be able to evade T-cells, adding to a growing body of evidence from research groups around the world who are also investigating T-cell responses to Covid-19. University of Melbourne professor and co-leader of the research, Matthew McKay, said: “Despite being a preliminary study, we believe this is positive news. “Even if Omicron, or some other variant for that matter, can potentially escape antibodies, a robust T-cell response can still be expected to offer protection and help to prevent significant illness.

What an excellent question, CNN. And so timely! Hardly a day over two years too late! Not a word about what makes Americans fat, bien sur.

Can Weight Loss Help Protect Against Covid-19? (CNN)

In the holiday season, when the average American can easily pack on a few pounds, experts say there is another reason to pay attention to your weight: Covid-19. People who are overweight or obese are at a much higher risk of much more severe disease and even death from Covid-19, and one new study suggests that losing weight can reduce that risk. The obesity epidemic has been a threat to Americans’ health for years. It’s the second leading cause of preventable death, after smoking. With Covid-19, it becomes even more dangerous. One study found that 30% of Covid-19 hospitalizations were in people with obesity. The obesity clinic where Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford works in Boston has a 1,000-plus person wait list that grew a lot longer with the pandemic. Even with more than a dozen specialists on staff, it’s not enough to meet the demand.


“We are overwhelmed with the volume of patients that have really made that connection between obesity and Covid and the need for them to get appropriate care,” said Cody Stanford, who is also an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. People with obesity are 46% more at risk of getting Covid-19, according to a study from August. It found that they are also more at risk of getting really sick, facing a 113% higher chance of being hospitalized, a 74% higher risk of needing to be treated in the ICU and – perhaps most troubling of all – a 48% increased risk of death. “The risk goes up and up and up with each increase” in body mass index (BMI), said study co-author Barry Popkin, a distinguished professor in the Department of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health.

Taking Back Our Liberty in 2022 (Ron Paul)

For those of us who value liberty, these past two years have been a bad dream. It seems like we fell asleep in early 2020 and woke up in 1984! They said that if we just put on a mask and stayed home for two weeks, we’d be able to return to normal. The two weeks came and went and instead of going back to normal they added more restrictions. These past two years have been a story of moving goalposts and “experts” like Anthony Fauci constantly contradicting themselves. Early on, in April 2020, I warned in an article titled “Next in Coronavirus Tyranny: Forced Vaccinations and ‘Digital Certificates,’” that the ultimate goal of the “two weeks” crowd was to force vaccines and a “vaccine passport” on Americans. My concerns were at the time written off as just another conspiracy theory. But less than a year later that “conspiracy theory” became conspiracy fact.

I am not happy about being right on this. The introduction of vaccine passports was from the beginning my worst nightmare. The idea that you must “show your papers” to participate in society is a concept that is totally opposed to a free society. It is inhuman. The history of these past two years is that the worst ideas have been adopted by force and anyone questioning those ideas has been suppressed by force. We learned recently that Dr. Fauci and the director of the National Institutes of Health conspired to deliver a “quick and devastating take-down” of the esteemed scientists behind the Great Barrington Declaration. Were the Great Barrington scientists horribly wrong? Fauci and his boss could not have cared less. They were not interested in a debate. Their only goal was to shut down any opposing views. That’s not science. It’s ideology, politics, and probably self-interest.

As my son Rand said on a recent Liberty Report, thousands of people died because Fauci refused to consider the proven effectiveness of natural immunity against Covid. He and his colleagues were determined to deny any outpatient treatments and insisted on vaccines as the only way out. Now, as we see the vaccines performing so poorly versus natural immunity, their whole strategy lies in tatters. Will anyone apologize to the relatives of all those who died? When we look back at these two years, hopefully one thing that will be remembered is how the institutions of state power have all lost their credibility. They have been exposed as frauds and worse.

The MSM is in trouble. There’s a whole new model in town.

Joe Rogan Podcast Reaches Millions More Than Cable News (JTN)

Joe Rogan has more than three times as many people per episode as his next greatest competitor “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, according to newly released data. “The Joe Rogan Experience” reaches a reported average of 11 million people per podcast episode. Fox News reigns as the most-watched cable news network, taking ten of the top viewership 15 spots. The top cable news spot goes to Carlson with 3.21 million viewers on average, Adweek reported on Nielsen data Monday. Conservative reporter Luke Rudkowski pointed out Rogan’s larger audience using 2021 Quarter 3 ratings. The most recent rating data from Adweek is slightly off from Q3, but overall remains the same. “This is why they are afraid of Rogan,” Rudkowski tweeted with a graph comparing the most popular cable news shows.


MSNBC’s primetime viewership trails behind with an average of 1.53 million primetime viewers. “Joe Rogan has completely disrupted the legacy media,” financial commentator Anthony Pompliano tweeted with a picture of Rudkowski’s graph. “Right now, Joe Rogan is the most dangerous man alive in the intellectual arena. In terms, that he is the most genuine pursuer of truth that has a big audience – therefore people will keep listening,” he later said on “The Best Business Show.” “That’s because he doesn’t lie. Or talk down to his audience. Or manipulate for his own narrow advantage,” psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson commented on Rogan’s ratings. Journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted, “The more employees of large media corporations attack Joe Rogan, the more his audience grows. The two individuals with the largest audiences happen to be the two people most hated by corporate media because they can’t be controlled or ordered around.”

    Lots of camera obscura in that painting.

    We can’t vaccinate the planet every six months,” says Covid-19 vaccine creator” –CNN

    I hadn’t thought about it that way, but you’re right in so many ways. 14 Billion doses per year, 7B x twice.

    Not picking on her, but AOC partying at crowded nightclub, no mask in Florida. Point being rules are for other people, of course, but also, she doesn’t believe a word of the rules or the danger. There’s no law AGAINST masking, she can if she wants. If she thought it was real – and Florida is a dangerous place – she’s welcome to wear one, no one will stop her. I won’t even make fun of her or anything, that would be in agreement with her stated beliefs. I respect that.

    But it’s the #Opposite of all those things. Like Nancy Pelosi, having ruined CA, Whitmer needing a break from her prison colony, they all just go since they were getting in trouble for ignoring their own rules in nightclubs at home, like Lightfoot. P.S. she was probably down there with her mother, who fled NY and her NYC district to escape high taxes.

    Again, AOC: doesn’t believe a thing about Covid. By her actions. Loves Florida and their policies. Good for her, who doesn’t? It’s the safest state in the Union. Has been for months. NY is the worst, fighting bitterly for worst worldwide with MI, NJ, etc. aka the “Mask States”.

    Thanks Dr. Malone for highlighting again the boring, well-worn technology they use to cause these purges, wars, and manias. Like 1999, 2006, tens of thousands of people publicly identified these problems in detail, said they would come to no good, and every billionaire, representative, and regulatory agency seemed to be actively encouraging the violent collapse and mass-death that would ensue. Every time, the authorities and experts denied it, belittled it, were publicly paid by it, and the critics were entirely, completely right. Right as loudly as “That giant sucking sound.”

    Nothing happened to the stock and penny fraud in ‘99, to the MERS and property fraud in ‘08, nor any other fraud in 100 years.

    Yet everyone dies, and their money magically ends up in their pockets.

    Just another coincidence no one saw coming, I guess.

    So anyway, if you missed it, here’s the method. The three-card monty with the hidden cameras catching them roughing up Joey and his expecting wife in the back. You know, I’d respect this con and violent abuse a lot more if everyone didn’t just say yes to it with open mouths. Like tiny, baby birds, hungrily, savagely eating anything you put out there before them.

    They really should just say, “Go home tonight, pick up your kids from school, and drown them in the bathtub.”

    The people would say, “Why yes! We’ve spend so much effort killing only our neighbors, why did we never think of killing our children before? To be a truly great, exemplary fellow, I simply MUST do this today!”

    And they say IVM is dangerous. Pica is much more so. A disease where you’ll swallow anything, the weirder the better.

    The reason they buy into the narrative is because it leads to this new social bond,”

    Yes. I can see that. The problem is THE BOND IS ALSO FALSE. Not just dangerous, not just thoughtless. The trinket you sold yourself for was also s—t. I just don’t understand. I can tell it by who is susceptible though. Your ONLINE friends? You’ve never met? TikTok influencers? Of makeup unboxing videos? And you chose them over your live family of 25 years?

So what, 5M? 11M? people saw Rogan? And Forbes, Intercept, usual suspects lie about what was said? Who are they fooling? Not those 11M people and their friends. CNN can change the minds of all 30 kids they have in day care. The other 330M Americans NOT in airports? Not so much. They’re podcasting Rogan on earbuds. SO THEIR LIES ARE THE CONFIRMATION of what his guests are saying, not an opposition to it.

    When the subject of the ‘vaccines’ arises, which it undoubtedly does, and one attempts to have a logical, adult conversation (you know, data, facts, etc), people figuratively put their fingers in their ears and start making loud, childish playground noises, followed by an equally loud, “I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!”

    I’ve often heard, “Well, I choose to believe in the vaccines” as the terminal statement. “Okay, fine. But you do realize that this belief is, according to you, faith-based, not science, right?” (Usually, I say to myself, as, they’re frustrated enough…)

    I find it interesting that mass formation psychosis, something many of us noticed a long, LONG time ago, is suddenly topic du jour…

    Will those suffering from the malady actually stop pointing at others & perhaps become introspective to the possibility that they may suffer from the condition as well?

    Let’s see, off the top of my head you’ve got:

    1> Large numbers of people willing to mindlessly follow whatever da Scienz tells them as the gospel.
    2> A significant portion of people that believe that COVID is a hoax, no virus was ever released, that no PPE should be ever deployed, ever.
    3> Once you’ve chosen a partisan ideology, or world view, anyone who disagrees with it is the enemy.

    There are a number of other mass formation psychosis scenarios I could run, but the REAL question should be What is the solution?

    Ah, never mind I know that isn’t possible, just another foible of western civ I guess, like young adults having their faces buried in “smart” phones every waking moment…

    But there was once this thing called Natural Law that seemed to have promise, back in 1776?

    Scales fell from his eyes.

    Confessions of a ‘human guinea pig’: Why I’m resigning from Moderna vaccine trials

    I felt then that being a test subject was a valuable way to contribute to public health during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    That initial feeling has receded in recent months as I have come to understand that the noble enterprise of science-making I had imagined I was a part of is actually, first and foremost, an exercise in ruthless corporate profit-making

    While the process of science and the products it yields are noble, science for outrageous profit that costs people their lives is not noble. That is why I can no longer in good conscience be part of Moderna’s trials, and I urge other Moderna trial participants to resign as well. We allowed Moderna to test its experimental vaccine and booster on us in order to help end this pandemic, not to make more pharma billionaires.

    This article is part of a publishing collaboration between Rescue and Trial Site News. The outstanding reporting by Mary Beth Pfeiffer …..
    The black line represents 2021 deaths in this age group and peaks in Q3 (with the most recently available data through the end of Q3). Using actual CDC reported death totals, 2019 (pre-pandemic) recorded 172,000 deaths during that three-month period. CDC data from Q3 2021 shows 250,000 actual deaths (or a 45% increase over the baseline expectation) for this age group, typically the working age population. Of that total, 50,600 were attributed by the CDC to COVID.

    • Taking Back Our Liberty in 2022 (Ron Paul)
    http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2022/january/03/taking-back-our-liberty-in-2022/

    As my son Rand said on a recent Liberty Report, thousands of people died because Fauci refused to consider the proven effectiveness of natural immunity against Covid. He and his colleagues were determined to deny any outpatient treatments and insisted on vaccines as the only way out. Now, as we see the vaccines performing so poorly versus natural immunity, their whole strategy lies in tatters. Will anyone apologize to the relatives of all those who died?

    When we look back at these two years, hopefully one thing that will be remembered is how the institutions of state power have all lost their credibility. They have been exposed as frauds and worse.
    What is to be done to defeat tyranny in 2022? We must continue to tell the truth. The truth is winning and the liars are losing. One by one their lies are being exposed. But it is not an easy task. Each of us in 2022 can do a little something to promote truth. Do what you can. The rewards are great!

    I finally managed to carve out 3 hours yesterday afternoon and watched the Joe Rogan interview with Dr. Malone. If I could get any of my blue-pilled friends and relatives to watch JUST ONE THING, this would be that thing.

    Just the other day I realized something that should have been obvious some time ago. There are two statements from Biden that have been sticking in my mind because they were so jarring. One was the “we’re losing our patience with you” blurb, and the other was the more recent one about “the winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated.” To me they are virtually unprecedented–no one in high political office in a functioning democracy would dare to speak to voters in such a way.

    What they are, I realized, are the kind of tone-deaf and imperious statements that an unelected administrator would make. They lack a sense of “what sells” in the same way as many of those obscene tweets from the World Economic Forum (remember “lockdowns are quietly making cities better”–I’m sure we can all think of others).

    This makes it clear that Biden is just reading what some administrator is writing for him.

    WES you asked in yesterday’s post whether or not garlic compounds could survive the stomach acids. The best evidence I have found to support the ability of garlic to tolerate stomach acids is garlic’s long history of use as a pathogen destroyer. As garlic is not a money-maker, you can be sure that very little research money is being spent on it. Here is a link from Mercola describing the known benefits of garlic and the studies that have been done.
    https://foodfacts.mercola.com/garlic.html

    I made another batch of garlic (fire cider) tincture. This is how I make it:
    5 or 6 heads of garlic
    2 or 3 jalapeños
    1 inch of horse radish root
    1 or 2 inches of ginger
    2 cups of apple cider vinegar
    (Note: if you don’t have all ingredients, not the end of the world. However garlic is key.$
    Throw it all in the blender and purée for about 5 minutes. Let the puréed mixture just sit and steep for about 30 minutes if you have time.
    Strain the mixture through several layers of cheese cloth, retaining the vinegar that now tastes very much like garlic, ginger, horse radish and hot pepper!

    How to use: 1 teaspoon in half a cup of water. Frequency: if you can tolerate it, 3 or 4 times per day if you are sick. I try to take it once per day as a preventative. Sometimes it nauseates me if I take it in an empty stomach.

    I agree with your overview. I’m old enough to have witnessed the 1968 Chicago Demo Convention where the cops were savagely beating the snot out of the protestors and they were chanting over an over an over,

    “The whole world is watching, The whole world is watching, The whole world is watching….”

    so loud it came through into the sound booths of the network news casters and onto the air.

    I also have life long friends who are German citizens living in German now who refuse to be vaxxed and are truly frightened by how they are being treated, and intimidated and threaten by their follow Germans and the government and are flabbergasted that it feels to them like what they read as children was the case in Germany of the 1930’s. This is right now happening to them. One said they feel like the police will shortly breakdown the door down and drag them off in the night to ‘isolation accommodations”

    Europe is finished as a democratic experiment. There is no light at the end of the tunnel from what I hear in Germany.

    Blog is up with another recent homestead construction photo of the “mini-McMansion”
    https://www.johndayblog.com/2022/01/fire-fights-fire.html

    Coronavirus accumulates about 1 RNA base-mutation every 1-2 weeks. This is a pretty steady time clock in the natural world.
    Most of these don’t make a difference in anything, because they lack “meaning”. They are either “nonsense mutations” or “non-structural”mutations.
    If a mutation makes the virus not work right, it is not carried forward because that virus does not reproduce or spread well.

    “Sense mutations” are different, and when they enhance viral “fitness” to replicate and spread, they create “variants of interest”.

    All of the “variants of interest” actually become family-clans of interest very soon, lineages, because each virus mutates every week or two..

    As large portions of a population began to be “vaccinated” against January 2020 spike-protein, some random viral mutations allowed viruses to compete better in this group.
    It is natural with non-sterilizing-vaccines that this evolutionary pressure is placed on viruses. In March and April 2021 in San Francisco, they already saw different “strains” specializing in “vaccinated” and “unvaccinated” people.

    Delta COVID in India, with a low percentage of vaccinated people, and was stopped well by ivermectin, zinc, doxycycline and vitamin-D. It traveled after that, and became good at infecting vaccinated as well as unvaccinated, because it exploits some of the antibodies produced by spike-protein vaccines for “facilitation”.
    Omicron seems to do that even better.

    Omicron is almost certainly another military-lab-release, because it has so many functional mutations, mostly in the spike protein, and it has so very few random, “nonsense mutations”. The number of mutations from its closest known relative puts it’s divergence back to March 2018 at least, and that is if they were random.
    They are absolutely not random. They are functional mutations. They make the spike protein vaccines useless against its spike protein, but the facilitating antibodies work fine. It is also about 3 times as effective at spreading through a population as Delta.

    Omicron appears to be a nearly-ideal free-range vaccine at this point. It provides good immunity to Delta and prior variants. (Is it a “friendly” counter-attack?)

    Sun Tzu’s “Art Of War” book, the most studied book on war, though ancient, classifies “War By Fire” as the most dangerous kind of attack, because it cannot be predicted or controlled after it has begun. The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 lab virus clan throughout the world, since at least mid 2019 (as saved specimens have revealed) seems certain to have been started by a leak, and or releases of “gain-of-function” viruses, created in labs in the US, Canada and China, and shared between them. (There is no reason why the massive Iranian national mourning events after the assassination of General Soleimani by a US dron in Iraq could not have been seeded with this military virus, which was already spreading in the world, but had a massive spread during those gatherings.)

    Just as a fire is started ahead of a forest fire, to burn up forest before the big fire gets to an area, to give it nothing to spread into, this may be a counter-fire military action. mRNA “vaccines” have not done that job, nor have viral-vector DNA vaccines. Chinese Sinovac and other “traditional” vaccines appear to be safer, not implicated in so many deaths, but do not appear very strong or sustained and are not “sterilizing”, either.

    Omicron appears to function as a very infectious and “mostly harmless” free-vaccine. This will naturally thwart the COVID-fear-mass-formation-totalitarian battle plan, by eliminating COVID-fear.

    This meme of Omicron-as-the-end-of-COVID is spreading in the financial world, already. The world of finance is going through changes as growth is transitioning to “de-growth”, and none of the dominant economic models will work in this new paradigm. They all assume growth.
    Fuel and resource limits won’t permit economic growth now.

    Jenny and I have resumed ivermectin-based-treatment almost 24 hours ago, and are doing well, without fever, and with normal vital signs. We will continue until we seem fully recovered, though that seemed to be the case before, and we had recurrence of viral illness and positive nasal swab tests yesterday. It is more likely overall that we have Delta, but cannot be completely certain. It was dominant in Texas when the first family-member of our “cluster” got sick 12/21/21. Our hospitalized family member reports feeling better and also sounds better on the phone this morning.

    Denial of Early Covid-19 Treatment – A Crime Against Humanity
    The Ethical Skeptic presents that people were forced into a medical experiment to accept “vaccines” or “nothing” without informed consent, and were systematically denied the other option of not being in the experiment, but taking available antiviral treatments early. This was intentional, and vast and rigorously coordinated through threats and coercion of medical professionals, and control of mass-communications.

    Denial of Early Covid-19 Treatment – A Crime Against Humanity

    Revised German government data shows Omicron prefers the “vaccinated”, but not by as much as it initially appeared.
    The revised data from the German government revealed a 78.6 percent vaccinated rate of Omicron cases.
    Originally, only 186 people contracting Omicron were unvaccinated in the entire sample, showing that vaccinated individuals were over 21 times as likely to contract the COVID-19 variant. The new RKI numbers reported 1,097 unvaccinated people, meaning the vaccinated were 3.7 times more likely to contract the variant.

    ​ French President Macron is interpreted as saying that he intends to make life harder on the unvaccinated in France, that “they are not French” and he will “piss them off” until they comply with the vaccine mandate. He is actually describing “urinating upon them” as his plan, humiliating them while forcing their compliance with the edict, not​ “angering them” as the term usually means.
    Can this harsh action be carried through successfully? The facts are building against vaccination-by-injection, as it does not prevent infections, hospitalizations or deaths, causes side effects including death, and the COVID fear-pandemic appears to be in its final act.
    French elections approach. Is Macron sacrificing his chances intentionally or unintentionally? He is expendable/replaceable to his owners.

    ​From Bill Blain, financial writer: “COVID is Dead, Energy is the New Crisis”
    …I am unconvinced many market participants understand just how much the ground has shifted over the last quarter – particularly in relation to Energy pricing. The first few months of 2022 are going to be about the market learning what the new landscape looks like, and how it adapts to a new and changing economic reality. This new year is going to be fundamentally different and more challenging in terms of how to invest “smart” in a new and utterly changed financial market environment.
    ​ ​On the plus side, the outlook for 2022 has rosy overtones: Increasingly it looks like the back of Coronavirus has been broken. Infections of the new Omicron might be running out of control around the globe, but new variant hospitalisations and deaths are way down…

    @Oroboros: Thanks. I also remember 1968 pretty well. I turned 10 in April. I was aware, but unable to participate, just watched… I remember the day JFK was assassinated, also. My grandparents taught me much about the world and how it really works, with my father’s mother and mother’s father both having extensive international life and travel at young to young adult ages. I also ended traveling the world a lot as a USMC brat during and after Vietnam.

    “Fourth Turning”, agreed. This one is some kind of 300 year “super-cycle” and nobody in power can see what to do, because they must relinquish power, and they cannot gaze upon that possibility at all.

    As energy per capita falls, the upper levels of system-complexity must be shed, and economies must re-localize more and more, in order to survive.

    The “Great Reset” to another, global consolidation of absolute power and control is the opposite of what can possibly lead to successful economic life support systems for humans in the future.

    @Sumac.Carol: Garlic and onions have quercetin, also, but it is much more concentrated in pills and powders. We eat and grow alliums here.

    There are two statements from Biden that have been sticking in my mind because they were so jarring. One was the “we’re losing our patience with you” blurb, and the other was the more recent one about “the winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated.” To me they are virtually unprecedented–no one in high political office in a functioning democracy would dare to speak to voters in such a way.

    I don’t know, but looking at Macron, and the police in Holland, and the ongoing lockdowns in Europe, both the terms “unprecedented” and “functioning democracy” might need an update.

    Definitely agree w/respect to Europe, but it’s well known by now that the EU is essentially an “administratively managed” state. But in the US, for any that might say otherwise, this is the best evidence that the Administrative State is (at least temporarily?) in the ascendant here as well.

    I think most regulars here will find JMG’s offering this week to be well worth a read.

    The point I want to stress here is that the grim Brutalist future to which people were expected to conform was never more than a mirage, and attempts to revive it in new forms—I’m thinking here especially of the Stalinist absurdity of Klaus Schwab’s “Great Reset”—carry all the conviction of the proverbial three-dollar bill. It’s not just that the resources needed to prop up that sort of system no longer exist, though of course that’s true, or that a good many of the core technologies that would be needed to make it function either don’t work or aren’t cost-effective enough to bother with, though this is also true.

    Even more important is the fact that the social consensus needed to make it happen doesn’t exist. Nor can that consensus be manufactured, because too many people nowadays assume as a matter of course—and for very good reason—that the experts are wrong, and the consensus they’re trying to push on the rest of us is yet another round of cerebral flatulence that won’t work. As a matter of practical experience, goverments do in fact exist by the consent of the governed, and so do ruling classes; that consent is cracking around us as I write these words.

    I posted that article by the Italian professor to that dreamwidth yesterday that Henry posted here. JMG blocked it as conspiracy theory, i then asked why he thought it was and he hasn’t responded. Strange.

    • Unprecedented: Deaths In Indiana For Ages 18-64 Are Up 40% (Kirsch)

    It’s not just in the USA. During 2021, the excess deaths in Europe for ages 15-44 were about 80% higher than in 2020. For ages 45-64, excess deaths were about 60% higher in 2021 (compared to 2020).

    Why would bad breath from the Snobs be the only source of Omicron?
    Can flatulence be involved in the explosive spread of Omicron?
