New Zealand Plays Barry Manilow To Repel Parliament Protesters (BBC)

Authorities in New Zealand have been playing Barry Manilow’s greatest hits in an attempt to dislodge protesters camped outside the parliament building. Songs by the US singer are being played on a 15-minute loop, along with the Spanish dance tune, Macarena. The demonstrators, who are angry at Covid-19 vaccine mandates, responded by playing songs such as Twisted Sister’s We’re Not Gonna Take It. The protests began on Tuesday when a convoy of vehicles drove to parliament. Inspired by large rallies against vaccine mandates in Canada, hundreds of protesters arrived in the capital, Wellington, to rally against Covid restrictions. They adopted the name “Convoy for Freedom” and blocked streets in the city.

By Wednesday their numbers had dwindled to the dozens, but they increased again at the weekend. On Thursday police arrested 122 people and charged many with trespassing or obstruction. Tactics used by the authorities to try and get rid of the protesters involved turning on the water sprinklers on the lawn where they were camped on Friday. But protesters retaliated by digging trenches and building makeshift drainpipes to re-route the water, the Associated Press news agency reports. With sprinklers proving ineffective, Parliament Speaker Trevor Mallard settled on a new approach: blasting out Barry Manilow’s greatest hits, which include Mandy and Could It Be Magic, as well as the 1990s hit Macarena and Covid vaccine messages.

Canada Truckers Protest: After A Police Raid, What Next? (BBC)

A police raid on the bridge blockade at Windsor, Ontario, failed to shut it down. With protesters in Ottawa also digging in, what will it take to get them to budge? They arrived by the bus load – police in balaclavas and carrying long guns, ready to oust dozens of protesters blocking roads leading to the Ambassador Bridge. There were pickups and SUVs festooned with Canadian flags, anti-vaccination slogans and anti-Trudeau epithets, as well as some heavy commercial trucks. About 100 vehicles have been parked along the roughly 2km (1.25 miles) of road leading up to the bridge for almost a week. The Freedom Convoy, as it’s been called, began as a protest against a mandate requiring truckers who cross the US-Canada border to be vaccinated.

But the group is not united by any one occupation – rather, they share a distrust of vaccines, a concern for government overreach and a general dislike of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. More than 12 hours after a court issued an injunction ordering the Windsor site to be cleared, the police moved in on Saturday morning. A number of vehicles agreed to leave immediately, although not without a loud honk or a shout of disapproval. More were ticketed and towed in the evening. But vehicles are no longer the problem, says Jason Bellaire, deputy chief of operations for the Windsor Police Service. The problem is the people, he says. “We need to make it exceeding clear they’re not welcome to stay here, they’re not welcome to disrupt our bridge traffic, they’re not welcome to disrupt our community,” he told the BBC

[..] “They’re going to have to move us out. We’ll be peaceful and we’ll lock arms and show unity,” said Dan, a protester who did not give his last name to the BBC. That leaves both sides in a standstill, with police trying to negotiate with protesters to go home. “We’re negotiating with them, we’re talking to them, we’re doing everything we can to resolve this peacefully and convince them to leave,” says Deputy Chief Bellaire. About 750km (466 miles) east in Ottawa, the protest group that has taken over the nation’s capital also shows no signs of slowing down. Unlike the Windsor crowd, which has been limited to a few hundred people occupying one major road, the Ottawa protest has essentially taken over the centre of a major city, with thousands of people flooding the streets with Canadian flags.

[..] But while French police fired tear gas to prevent their own Freedom Convoy from advancing, that’s a tactic Windsor police don’t seem to want to use. “It will take as long as it takes,” Deputy Chief Bellaire said. “I’m not giving them a timeline.” One thing working in police’s favour is Mother Nature. With temperatures dropping to -17C (1.4 F) overnight, it will not be a pleasant evening for those trying to tough it out.

““It’s a win-win,” Koss said. “The pandemic is rolling down right now, they can remove the mandates, all the mandates, and everyone’s happy. The government does the right thing, and the protesters are all happy.“

Blockades on Canada-US Border Continue As Protests Swell (AP)

Protesters opposed to COVID-19 vaccine mandates and other restrictions withdrew their vehicles from a key U.S.-Canadian border bridge Saturday though access remained blocked while other demonstrations ramped up in cities across Canada, including the capital, where police said they were awaiting more officers before ending what they described as an illegal occupation. The tense standoff at the Ambassador Bridge linking Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, eased somewhat early in the day when Canadian police persuaded demonstrators to move the trucks they had used to barricade the entrance to the busy international crossing.

But protesters reconvened nearby — with reinforcements — and were still choking off access from the Canadian side late Saturday, snarling traffic and commerce for a sixth day. About 180 remained late Saturday in the sub-freezing cold. In Ottawa, the ranks of protesters swelled to what police said was 4,000 demonstrators. The city has seen that on past weekends, and loud music played as people milled about downtown where anti-vaccine demonstrators have been encamped since late January. The protests at the bridge, in Ottawa and elsewhere have reverberated outside the country, with similarly inspired convoys in France, New Zealand and the Netherlands, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned that truck convoys may be in the works in the United States.

[..] Surrounded by dozens of officers in Windsor, a man with “Mandate Freedom” and “Trump 2024” spray-painted on his vehicle left the bridge entrance early in the day as others began dismantling a small, tarp-covered encampment. A trucker honked his horn as he, too, drove off, to cheers and chants of “Freedom!” But hundreds more arrived to bolster the crowd and settled into a faceoff with police about two blocks away, waving flags and yelling. While there were no visible physical confrontations, the crowd still controlled the road to the bridge, and traffic had not resumed as of the evening.

Windsor police tweeted that no one had been arrested but urged people to stay away from the bridge: “We appreciate the cooperation of the demonstrators at this time and we will continue to focus on resolving the demonstration peacefully. Avoid area!” Protester Daniel Koss said shortly before police advanced that the demonstration had succeeded in bringing attention to demands to lift COVID-19 mandates and he was happy it remained peaceful. “It’s a win-win,” Koss said. “The pandemic is rolling down right now, they can remove the mandates, all the mandates, and everyone’s happy. The government does the right thing, and the protesters are all happy.”

“When law-abiding citizens are provoked by indefensible government edicts and denied any hearing by those in power what are they supposed to do? ”

Democracy Demands That The Truckers Get A Fair Hearing (Burney)

The ability to choose whether or whether not to be vaccinated is a fundamental civil liberty and that is what the Canadian truckers’ “Freedom Convoy,” now being emulated in the U.S. and Europe, is about. The convoy has been infiltrated by a few disreputable elements and has been disruptive in such cities as Ottawa, but the movement has been largely law-abiding, even cheerful. As a Wall Street Journal editorial commented: “When you’ve lost even Canadians, arguably the most law-abiding people on the planet, you’ve lost the political plot.” The concerns protesters are expressing deserve respect from the government and not the prime minister’s dismissive comparison with demonstrations he has supported, such as those of Black Lives Matter.

BLM protests in America erupted into violent criminal behaviour, arson and extensive damage to public and private property in many cities. Having stunted Parliament for two years, the government seems afraid to face real opposition. The prime minister’s claim that the truckers are expressing “unacceptable views” has an authoritarian ring. “Unacceptable” by what definition and in violation of what law? Ottawa’s mayor declared a state of emergency, which he has limited power to enforce. His eminently sensible suggestion that an honest broker be appointed to mediate was ignored by the government. Astonishingly, former Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney described the protest as “sedition,” whereas NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh uttered a peculiar dog whistle about white supremacy.

In an emotional, unsubstantiated rant, Ottawa’s police chief said the protest represented an “insurrection” (prompting the thuggish arrest of a great-grandfather for honking his horn). Comments like these debase legitimate public protests that have featured neither violence nor vandalism. When law-abiding citizens are provoked by indefensible government edicts and denied any hearing by those in power what are they supposed to do? [..] Before we condemn ourselves to a similar fate on the next pandemic, we need to take a deep breath and analyze carefully what went wrong and why. The political paralysis in Ottawa is mind-boggling. The prime minister cannot hide behind a “science” that is being overtaken by events. Give the truckers, now being joined by farmers and others across Canada, a fair hearing. That is what democracy demands, not pompous stonewalling by timid politicians.

Biden Tells Putin Ukraine Invasion Would Bring Decisive Response (R.)

U.S. President Joe Biden told Russia’s Vladimir Putin on Saturday that the West would respond decisively to any invasion of Ukraine, adding such a step would produce widespread suffering and isolate Moscow. In the latest effort to manage growing hostility, the two men spoke by phone for an hour a day after Washington and its allies warned that the Russian military, which has 100,000 troops massed near Ukraine, could invade at any moment. Moscow has dismissed those warnings as “hysteria.” Neither side said there had been any breakthroughs. A senior Biden administration official said the call was professional and substantive, but that there was no fundamental change.

The Kremlin said Putin told Biden Washington has failed to take Russia’s main concerns into account, and it had received no “substantial answer” on key elements including NATO’s expansion and the deployment of offensive forces to Ukraine. The senior Biden administration official said it was unclear whether Putin was committed to diplomacy even as he agreed to stay in touch with Biden. The call took place as Israel, Portugal and Belgium joined the list of countries that have urged their citizens to leave Ukraine immediately. The U.S. State Department ordered most of its embassy staff to leave Ukraine. The Pentagon said it was withdrawing about 150 military trainers.

Giant Ukrainian US Lobbying Campaign Revealed (RT)

Ukrainian lobbyists contacted US congressional offices, think tanks, and media figures over 10,000 times last year, according to an analysis of Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) filings reported by the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft on Friday. The Quincy report pointed to the “extraordinary” scale of Ukraine’s lobbying campaign, noting that the lobbying efforts of Saudi Arabia – known as one of the largest foreign lobbies in Washington DC – pales in comparison. According to the report, most of Kiev’s persuasive efforts focused on members of Congress, who were deluged with over 8,000 contacts – emails, phone calls, and meetings – in an effort to convince them of the need to block the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, among other issues.

The Ukrainian Federation of Employers of the Oil and Gas Industry (UFEOGI), the country’s largest energy trade group, would reportedly cite Ukraine’s PM, arguing that the pipeline was “no less an existential threat” to Ukraine’s “security and democracy” than “Russian troops on the border.” The pipeline, which is completed but still has to receive the green light from German regulators, would allow Russia to export gas directly to Europe without having to pay Kiev billions for the transfer of gas. UFEOGI lobbyists apparently centered their efforts on Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who took just several days to channel the Ukrainian PM on social media. In his own message, Cruz likewise referred to the Russian pipeline as an “existential threat.”

The trade group also sought to reach out to senators who had previously backed legislation to thwart the completion of the pipeline, including several members of the Foreign Relations Committee with a history of anti-Russian votes. Cruz, Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), John Barrasso (R-Wyoming), Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), and Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire) were all contacted at least 100 times last year, with some of these contacts resulting in their staffers meeting directly with Ukrainian energy lobbyists, the report claims. The bill proposed by Cruz would have imposed bans on doing business with US companies for those involved with the Nord Stream 2 project, in addition to travel restrictions and asset freezes. It failed to pass, however.

A separate legislative proposal, put forth by Senator Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey) and dubbed “the mother of all sanctions,” would punish senior Russian officials and banks in the event of an invasion of Ukraine. The Quincy report noted that one of Menendez’s former staffers, Brittany Beaulieu, now represents UFEOGI, as well as the ‘Civil Movement for a Just Ukraine’. Apart from the US lawmakers, Ukrainian lobbyists also reportedly courted pro-NATO think tank the Atlantic Council, contacting it hundreds of times. The report noted that one of the richest men in Ukraine, Victor Pinchuk, is also one of the Atlantic Council’s international advisers, while his foundation is a major contributor to the think tank.

“To modify Jon Stewart’s memorable metaphor, this is like finding chocolate everywhere except in the Hershey’s factory.”

The Chinese Bat Virus That Never Shows Up in Any Chinese Bats (Geraghty)

The MIT Technology Review offers a long and mostly even-handed look at the hunt for the origin of Covid-19, featuring many new quotes from Shi Zhengli of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and an account of a tour through the facility’s labs. The piece is generally skeptical of the lab leak theory, but notes that Peter Daszak, who is a prominent advocate of the natural origins theory, “has potential conflicts of interest,” “there are still concerns that the biosafety standards in the Wuhan lab might not have been rigorous enough to prevent research activities from causing the pandemic,” “some of the Wuhan institute’s behavior has certainly raised red flags,” and “instead of tackling the publicity crisis directly, China has exacerbated mistrust by running obfuscation and disinformation campaigns of its own.” It is worth reading in full.

But there’s one line in the MIT Technology Review article I want to focus upon for a moment: “But one year after the WHO’s visit to Wuhan, the disease detectives have yet to find the guilty animal or other indisputable evidence of natural origins.” The WHO team visit to Wuhan was in February 2021, so this means after two years of looking, and “tens of thousands” of samples, no one has found SARS-CoV-2 naturally occurring in animals in and around Wuhan, China. As noted earlier this week, SARS-CoV-2 is spreading like wildfire among American white-tailed deer. The CDC affirms “many mammals, including cats, dogs, bank voles, ferrets, fruit bats, hamsters, mink, pigs, rabbits, racoon dogs, tree shrews, and white-tailed deer can be infected with the virus.”

Gorillas at the Dallas zoo, snow leopards at a Bloomington zoo, lions at the Akron Zoo, – you name the animal, there’s a good chance they’ve caught Covid-19. And of course, we know how contagious this virus is among human beings. So why is this virus so hard to find in Chinese bats? If this virus originated in a bat, and naturally evolved to maximize its ability to infect bats, and is genetically most similar to other viruses found in bats in China… why is SARS-CoV-2 proving impossible to find in bats in China? To modify Jon Stewart’s memorable metaphor, this is like finding chocolate everywhere except in the Hershey’s factory.

Fauci’s reaction? “Vaccines and boosters have proven incredibly effective, and offer the highest level of protection..”

COVID Booster Loses Potency After 4 Months (Y!)

A fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine might be necessary for some Americans. New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds that the mRNA shot’s protection begins to decline after about four months, according to a study released Friday. Although vaccine effectiveness against COVID-related hospitalizations was at 91 percent during the first two months after a third dose, it decreased to 78 percent by the fourth month. The study, which was conducted during the Omicron-dominate phase of the pandemic, focused on those who sought medical treatment for COVID symptoms. It did not include a breakdown of age or whether their third dose was a booster or part of their primary inoculation series, which the CDC recommends for some immunocompromised people.

“There may be the need for yet again another boost — in this case, a fourth-dose boost for an individual receiving the mRNA — that could be based on age, as well as underlying conditions,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, told reporters Tuesday. Fauci clarified that recommendations for a fourth dose will likely not be made “across the board for everyone,” adding: “It very likely will take into account what subset of people have a diminished, or not, protection against the important parameters such as hospitalization.”

The CDC’s update comes after the COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. surpassed 900,000 last week, less than two months after it reached 800,000. President Joe Biden urged Americans who hadn’t gotten their shots yet to get vaccinated as he marked the tragic milestone. “Vaccines and boosters have proven incredibly effective, and offer the highest level of protection,” he said. “Two hundred and fifty million Americans have stepped up to protect themselves, their families, and their communities by getting at least one shot — and we have saved more than one million American lives as a result.”

Clinton Campaign Paid To ‘Infiltrate’ Trump Tower – Durham (Fox)

Lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower, and later the White House, in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to bring to government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia, a filing from Special Counsel John Durham says. Durham filed a motion on Feb. 11 focused on potential conflicts of interest related to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussman has pleaded not guilty.

The indictment against Sussman says he told then-FBI General Counsel James Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the 2016 presidential election, that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and held a meeting in which he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin. But Durham’s filing on Feb. 11, in a section titled “Factual Background,” reveals that Sussman “had assembled and conveyed the allegations to the FBI on behalf of at least two specific clients, including a technology executive (Tech Executive 1) at a U.S.-based internet company (Internet Company 1) and the Clinton campaign.”

Durham’s filing said Sussman’s “billing records reflect” that he “repeatedly billed the Clinton Campaign for his work on the Russian Bank-1 allegations.” The filing revealed that Sussman and the Tech Executive had met and communicated with another law partner, who was serving as General Counsel to the Clinton campaign. Sources told Fox News that lawyer is Marc Elias, who worked at the law firm Perkins Coie.

Trump Demands Prosecutions, Reparations After Durham Revelations (JTN)

Former President Donald Trump demanded Saturday that there be prosecutions and reparations after Special Counsel John Durham revealed in an explosive court filing that Hillary Clinton’s campaign plotted to infiltrate the Trump campaign and White House computer servers years ago to concoct false Russia collusion allegations. Durham’s latest court filing “provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” Trump said.

“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution,” he added. “In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this.” Durham’s court filing said lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower and the Trump White House to create an “inference” of Russia collusion in 2016-17, hoping to get federal agencies to investigate.

John Durham Highlights the Tip of the Iceberg (CTH)

Against the latest court filings by John Durham, highlighting the tip of the political surveillance iceberg, I have been asked to re-post the deep dive into the totality of the scale of the iceberg. I will add some of the latest information into the outline to show how it all connects. Barack Obama and Eric Holder did not create a weaponized DOJ and FBI; instead, what they did was take the preexisting system and retool it, so the weapons only targeted one side of the political continuum. Together they recalibrated the domestic surveillance capabilities, the internal spying systems, so that only their political opposition would be targeted. This point is where many people understandably get confused.

In the era shortly after 9/11, the DC national security apparatus was constructed to preserve continuity of government and simultaneously view all Americans as potential threats. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) were created specifically for this purpose. What Barack Obama and Eric Holder did with that new construct was refine the internal targeting mechanisms so that only their ideological opposition became the target of the new national security system. This is a very important nuance to understand as you dig deeper into this research outline. Washington DC created the modern national security apparatus immediately and hurriedly after 9/11/01. DHS came along in 2002 and within the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 the ODNI was formed.

When Barack Obama and Eric Holder arrived a few years later, those newly formed institutions were viewed as opportunities to create a very specific national security apparatus that would focus almost exclusively against their political opposition. The preexisting Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Dept of Justice (DOJ) were then repurposed to become two of the four pillars of the domestic national security apparatus. However, this new construct would have a targeting mechanism based on political ideology. The DHS, ODNI, DOJ and FBI became the four pillars of this new institution. Atop these pillars is where you will find the Fourth Branch of Government.

We were not sleeping when this happened, we were wide awake. However, we were stunningly distracted by the economic collapse that was taking place in 2006 and 2007 when the engineers behind Obama started to assemble the design. By the time Obama took office in 2009, we sensed something profound was shifting, but we can only see exactly what shifted in the aftermath. The four pillars were put into place, and a new Fourth Branch of Government was quietly created. As time passed, and the system operators became familiar with their new tools, technology allowed the tentacles of the system to reach out and touch us. That is when we first started to notice that something very disconcerting was happening.

    “Evidence for a connection between coronavirus disease-19 and exposure to radiofrequency radiation from wireless communications including 5G”

    spirit of the radio?


    I just have to say deflatulance’s reply to my post yesterday was simply evil. We are two years into this “pandemic” and I’m being told that I am somehow crazy to believe my own eyes (which have seen zero people die of covid, and seen dozens or more people sick regardless of vaccine status) and instead should be basing my decisions at this point on the lying CDC and the pharmaceutical companies.

    Furthermore, embedded in that cruel reply was the wish that people who chose not to get jabbed with the covid serum should die.

    There really is nothing more evil that that. Simply horrifying. I really hope this thing is a bot because it terrifies me that people like that might actually inhabit the world.

    And fwiw, my husband and I worked at one of the top research universities and top particle physics labs in the world when this “pandemic” broke out. We based out decision to not get jabbed on many scientists that study virus’ and their reaction to a possible coronavirus vaccine. I now work at a different university, and have spoken to multiple biologists who have serious reservations. What you hear from CNN and the CDC is not close to what “the science” says in general.

    And all that said, have your vaccines. Just don’t force me to take them, or wish me death.


    You’re just an sleazy dipshit, digital or biological defbot… and everybody here knows it. As a bot, the data from our responses still earns your keep per analysis value, but as a propagandist, you truly suck.

    Boscohoororshitz is BIG MAD. I mean BIIIIG Mad. Poor baby got his feelies hurt. And in response lashes out in the only way “a genius” knows how.

    By the way, Dunning-Kruger works in reverse with geniuses like me. (Well, I fucking am per several IQ tests from way back.) Geniuses, unless they’re mentally unsound otherwise, genuinely questions themselves and their intelligence far more than plain jane half-brights like you. The DK Effect applies far more to you than us, especially your robotic component. U think u so smaht.

    This is incredible. And revealing. Who calls themselves a genius??? I mean, really. At this point, you’re just fucking pathetic, and I will treat you as such. So, in many ways, I will just treat you the same.

    My brother in law is a psychologist. He always says “if people think they’re crazy, they probably aren’t”. I am pretty sure the same applies in your case, “if people think they’re a genius, they probably aren’t”. I one time ate dinner with another self proclaimed genius. It didn’t take them long to reveal that their IQ was 160, as if that was some “shot across the bow” “I am the genius” “what I say goes” proclamation.

    I will just ask one more time: who calls themselves a genius?

    You.don’t. You provide misleading bullshit. Liker I said, your reputation… based entirely on what you say. For all I know you’re gorgeous with divine teeth and ten inch dick. Wowzer. But you’re still you’re just a lying fuck and, like I said, everybody knows it. But whatever gets you through the night, defbot.

    This is what a genius temper tantrum looks like.

    Pathetic. I am embarrassed for you.

    My own personal suspicion is that the Ukraine/Russia rhetoric is laying the groundwork for a coming “cyberattack”, which will be blamed (with no proof again) on Russia. All to provide more distraction from election shenanigans, the Epstein scandal, COVID policy failure and general economic meltdown, otherwise known as domestic corruption / business-as-usual. Just watch Psaki’s confidence and comfort with tyrannical policy in her “press conferences”. It will probably also provide rationale for more QE if/when QT fails this summer. Follow the money.


    I missed this at the time, maybe it was posted before. Deserves a repeat. Meryl Nass:

    The horror of COV19 is exemplified by (imho)… First, the witholding of treatments that would have helped, such as early treatment with hydroxyQ., Ivermectin, possibly, other.

    Second, the use of remdesivir which killed ppl, as far as i have been able to dope out. (Gvmts. paid out mega cash to support this kind of move, see also putting ppl on vents…etc. etc.)

    Other ppl might have a different top of the list, such as injecting young ppl or children, under 18, 12, 5, … with harmful substances. A form of child sacrifice, implemented via layers of hysteria, domination, control.

    Not a competition, ppl feel differently about harm to children, older ppl, suffering ppl, OK.

    The corruption of the Medical Industry is staggering. Or one might say, the Med. Industry is a series of money-making scams that have been, are, extremely successful.


    Not mad. I just like picking on you cuz you’re a pathetic little weasel. That’s all. *smooch*

    Yes, But…


    “Pathetic. I am embarrassed for you.”

    No you’re not. You’re just outclassed. It’s an exercise in petty self-righteousness subsidized by your flaming dipshit amorality.


    << . The UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Peaceful Assembly and Association has affirmed that “the free flow of traffic should not automatically take precedence over freedom of peaceful assembly.” However, these rights are not unlimited. They can be restricted in order to protect the rights of others, public order and public health. The UN Human Rights Committee has said that “an assembly that remains peaceful but which nevertheless causes a high level of disruption, such as the extended blocking of traffic, may be dispersed, as a rule, only if the disruption is ‘serious and sustained’.” In any case, the onus is on the authorities to justify any restrictions.>>

    How conveniently that reads for TPTB. (Of course, it was penned by lackeys of TPTB.)
    ANY large protest that lasts day after day is, of necessity and practicality, going to be easily found to infringe on “the rights of others, public order and public health.” There is no point in protesting far away from civilization – it is easily ignored. WHY would a large protest go on day after day? Because a sizable portion of the population is dissatisfied with the actions of the government that is supposedly their servants in a supposedly democratic system. Now governments know that all they have to do is ignore the protestors for a long enough period of time until the protest becomes extremely inconvenient. Even better, police can strategically place their own barricades and presence in such a way as to impede services to marginalized communities, and the blame for those delays will be carried by the protesters. Agents provocateurs don’t even have to cause any mass of the protestors to vandalism and violence, all they have to do is get some ops for the local TPTB news stations of some Nazi or Confederate flags, etc., and the woke left will be enraged by the protesters. Basically, in order for a large protest that lasts for days to receive the “stamp of approval” from Amnesty International, it must run the city better than the city government runs the city and police the actions of its attendees better than any city’s police force polices the actions of its own trained officers. What is this? Some sort of “full circle” since Ghandi where the power of peaceful protest has become ideologically defanged by TPTB? The last thing I desire is violence…but forcing toxic jabs IS a form of violence, and denying people the ability to provide for themselves and their families IS “structural violence.” When TPTB utilize violence and massive peaceful protest cannot change the government’s tune…it isn’t good.
    I personally don’t believe that “violence,” per se, is the best answer for those opposed to vaccine mandates. However, if traditional, ongoing peaceful protest is ignored, the movement will not end. It will metastisize and find new, novel ways to burst forth. Such is life.


    John day asked how the protests in Australia are doing. Thanks, Raúl, for posting that link. In the national capital where I live, it’s been big around Parliament House and the EPIC markets where they’ve been camping. Life in the suburbs has not been impacted at all unless you wanted to go to the markets. Unfortunately Lifeline’s vital fund-raising bookfair was cancelled, allegedly because of bad behaviour by some of the protestors making it “unsafe” to proceed.

    A much-vilified MP, George Chritensen has some photos and a video on his website.

    Here’s some of what he wrote:

    You see, yesterday I was at the Convoy to Canberra rally which was literally the largest protest I have seen in the nation’s capital in the 11 years I’ve been coming here as a Federal Member of Parliament.

    You may have heard all the mainstream (fake news) media spin that it was violent, out of control and all the rest of it but, as someone who was actually there in the crowd, I can assure you it was anything but. In fact, I’ve never been to an event before where I saw so much hugging of complete strangers going on.

    Far from violent, what I saw was the freedom movement breaking out into spontaneous acts of kindness. The only hatred on display was for all the vaccine mandates, division and restrictions, and those who have perpetrated that abuse on the Australian people.

    You may have also heard stories about how small the crowd was. That’s nonsense. As I said, this was the largest rally I’ve seen in Canberra since I’ve been coming here. But don’t take it from me. Check out the photos and video below:

    Yes, the ABC (government MSM) certainly alleged various levels of nastiness. Pity, because the ABC is usually quite prepared to criticise the government of the day — a major reason why successive governments, both left and right, have keen for decades to privatise it. They constantly fail because the public are protective of their ABC. It’s a real institution here, and often very good at investigative journalism. So sad that it can’t or won’t investigate certain topics.

    I urge you to reconsider and to not leave the TAE conversation. The continued presence of opinions that contradict your firm beliefs does not mean that your voice is being ignored or has failed in any way. It is simply the nature of earnest and sincere debate. Everyone loses to some extent if you go silent or leave the table.

    There are those who count on your strength and integrity in the face of persistent counter arguments, to remain the voice of measured reason on their behalf. I know that it cannot be easy to do what have been doing so well. Nevertheless, If you still feel that you really must leave, fare well.

    The 5G story is quite old.

    Here is Dafna Tachover from Children;s Health Defense talking about it 1-30-20

    CHD’s Dafna Tachover, Talks About 5G Dangers With RT America

    This is before the connection was being floated that the 5G network can actively interact with the graphene oxide in the Corona Killshots. An interesting hypothesis I have not yet formed a hard opinion on. Nothing surprises me anymore however.

    Other ingredients in the Corona Killshots could also interact with the 5G radiation, which is much stronger and intense than the current 4G cell towers will have now.

    Dafna Tachover on 5G effects


    Seems some folks on here are confused about some definitions.

    To simplify,,,,,


    Fascism does not, in any way, equate to Communism. In fact, Fascists like to kill Communists.

    Fascism is more akin to Crony Capitalism/Socialism gone rabid, wielding the power of the State as leverage.

    Doc, thanks for your post: sharing, … awesome read! Vastly reflects similarities in my long, long professional life as a professional mechanical engineer.



    P.S.: … re my COVD experience:… Its over! Almost 3 weeks. As suggested: D3, Zinc, Quercetin, Aspirin. Length probably due to my age (71). Severity was relatively mild, … only couple of days when I – momentarily, contemplated if, … just perhaps, a trip to an urgent care facility was in order? Thanks, …


    ism ism ism. When folks say “communiusm” they don’t mean the theory on paper, they mean the horror in practice. Stalin, Hilter? Same difference.

    The ism that best fits might be totalitarianism, but that is so absolute a term it wields awkwardly.

    I like the term shitism: dogshit, batshit, ratshit, manshit: all smell velly belly bad.



    tdk: a mirror is not lonely to a psychopath. It occurs to me that psychopaths are fairly robotic and have a hard time imitating a fully-emotive human being.

    An ethical psychopath is the best friend/leader/fighter ever. An unethical psychopath is a sociopath with advanced apathy skills.

    @Oroboros: One of the “causes” I was fired for , right after Governor Abbot declared vaccine mandates illegal in Texas, was my advising patients of the risks and advising pregnant women not to take them. I advised every relatively healthy person who was not elderly against them, especially those who already had the bug.
    Seeking revenge is not the best way. It begets further revenge.
    Justice, is different. Justice is kind of rare, even…


    The WEF’s policies which have infiltrated world governments are massively democidal, soul-crushing, and profoundly cruel. Their motives are not to save the planet from humans (humans are biota, too), but to save their lifestyles.

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.


    Some say the world will end by sterile seed
    Some say by plague.
    From what I know and what I read
    I hold with those who favor greed
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I know enough of ignorance
    To say that for destruction it
    Is just as good vile intents.

    (chuckles) Regarding sumac.carol: I totally get her wanting to leave in her situation. She has strong beliefs, and those things can really feel alienating at times. I’ve been there numerously. It can be part of a process of self-discovery… for example, she discovered how quickly people will turn and bite nast5y ad hominems when they feel they’re right and you’re wrong.

    So, go away for awhile and take a breather from our obnoxious arses. But don’t feel shy about coming back a it please ye.

    Last Night in Town

    [Verse 1]
    Everyone gather round now, sing us a song
    Just in case by tomorrow it happens he’s gone
    For two weeks and seven days our fair foreign friend
    I have this feeling we might never see Steven again

    But we thought he was gone
    And now he’s come back again
    Last week it was funny
    And now the joke’s wearing thin
    Cause everyone knows now, that every night now
    Will be Steven’s last night in town

    [Verse 2]
    He’s charmed everyone here, except Tamara Easter
    Who later revealed to him her innermost secrets
    Won us over with stories about Linda McCartney
    Lost points with the ladies for saying he couldn’t
    Love a woman with cellulite

    But we thought he was gone
    And now he’s come back again
    Last week it was funny
    And now the joke’s wearing thin
    Cause everyone knows now, that every night now
    Will be Steven’s last night in town

    Any excuse for a party, I say. Yo, Sumie! Come back and dance before leaving!


    I just have to say deflatulance’s reply to my post yesterday was simply evil. We are two years into this “pandemic” and I’m being told that I am somehow crazy to believe my own eyes (which have seen zero people die of covid, and seen dozens or more people sick regardless of vaccine status) and instead should be basing my decisions at this point on the lying CDC and the pharmaceutical companies.

    Furthermore, embedded in that cruel reply was the wish that people who chose not to get jabbed with the covid serum should die.

    There really is nothing more evil that that. Simply horrifying. I really hope this thing is a bot because it terrifies me that people like that might actually inhabit the world.

    And fwiw, my husband and I worked at one of the top research universities and top particle physics labs in the world when this “pandemic” broke out. We based out decision to not get jabbed on many scientists that study virus’ and their reaction to a possible coronavirus vaccine. I now work at a different university, and have spoken to multiple biologists who have serious reservations. What you hear from CNN and the CDC is not close to what “the science” says in general.

    And all that said, have your vaccines. Just don’t force me to take them, or wish me death.

    Oh Kasandra. Poor Kasandra. You gentle flower. You don’t need to read so deeply into my (sarcastic) comments to make you so sad and call me evil. You can just read my words- as written:

    “Reeeeeal scienz.
    My doctor, Dr. Vinny Boombatz put me on a diet of Cheetos and Pepsi. And, clearly, that saved my ass from getting Covid at all. You should try it. I also here urine pulling works.
    Whatever you do, don’t get the “clot shot”. Staying alive is overrated.”

    Ummmm. What would qualify you as “crazy” is thinking that Cheetos and Pepsi is what kept you healthy from Covid. Or that those two things helped you get better. Correlation does not imply causation. You do know that right? The thing is, I really don’t think you do. Which is odd, considering your apparent career path.

    Call me evil all you want. My comment was commensurate with you mocking me- out of the blue:

    I don’t know what deflatulence thinks he’s accomplishing by what he’s posting, do you want people to get sicker and die?

    So, I mocked you in response. Anecdotes apparently count for science in our top physics labs and universities. I had no idea. So I thought I would share my own in a mocking way.

    It’s amazing how you read into my comment. It reveals a common theme we see in many posters here. You see things that are not there and in many cases, respond to those things out of fear.
    Every anti-vax person has their anecdotes. All right there at their fingertips, to share with people.

    Meanwhile billions of “clot shots” have been administered and we have “evil” people here almost cheering on a coming mass death of the population as a result of the vaccine, because they think it gives people a version of AIDS. Did I giddily suggest that 1/3 of the population will die a horrible death in the next five years or was that some other, “evil” persons? I get the distinct feeling that people here really want there to be a mass die-off for the simple, “evil” reason that “they were right along”. I have simply provided data on a vaccine that almost 100% can keep you out of the hospital, getting severe sickness, or dying. And you think I want people to die? What did you say your job was again?

    When you base your beliefs on made up numbers and ideas that are pushed by grifting propagandists, don’t assume people will not push back in some way. In this case, I mocked you in response. If you think that indicates evil, maybe you should change your name to Karen.


    Justice and revenge are a spectrum.

    One person’s justice is another’s revenge

    The movie Munich delved into this in great detail.

    The 72′ killings of Israel’s athletes by Palestinians at the Olympic games did not go unpunished or unanswered.

    Now punishment can happen with either revenge or justice

    It’s a judgement call.

    The Israels hunted down the masterminds and participants behind Munich, and it was justice to them.

    The Palestinians thought it was revenge.

    Probably a combination

    Cops and soldiers getting vaxed and then becoming sterile by the millions,

    some would sayPoetic Justice for their role in serving tyrannts, others would say tragic injustice.

    One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor.

    “Every Civilization finds it necessary to negotiate compromises with it’s own values.”


    I’m waiting for this headline:


    as reported in the Ironic Times

    D Benton Smith

    I hate numbers in the same way (and for the same reasons) that I hate mosquitoes and weeds in the garden: they are Natural and beneficial necessities that just happen to be a big bother to my arrogantly selfish perceived desires at that moment .

    In that vein, let’s look at some numbers. 7.9 billion , for example, versus 2,755. The first one is the number of people on earth, and the second is the number of billionaires.

    Here they are side by side : 2,755 vs 7, 9 0 0, 0 0 0, 0 0 0 .

    By and large a significant portion of those 2,755 billionaires view the vast majority of the other 7,900,000,000 humans as weeds and mosquitoes. That tiny cohort of the filthy rich are insanely full of psychotic horse shit, of course, but since they are so rich and disassociated they never have to pay any attention to being told so. They believe (from generations long insulation) that they don’t have to listen. and as for understanding anything, well, they just hire underlings to do that boring “understanding the bugs” stuff for them.

    What happens next requires no advanced math skills.

    Some portion of us 7, 9 0 0, 0 0 0 , 0 0 0 (!) human mosquitoes are about to give an arithmetic lesson to that miniscule (2755) little huddle of juicy nincompoops ABOUT who will win the blood sucking contest those inbred cretins evilly started and unwisely think they can control. They can’t control it. NO ONE CAN CONTROL IT. Reversing climate fluctuation would be easier.

    And don’t get all stressed out fretting that some damn fool might set it all off by popping an Archduke or something. THAT event was way back there in Wuhan. To mix metaphors again (my second favorite hobby!) , ” By the time a really big ship sees an iceberg dead ahead, for all practical purposes they’ve already hit it.” In other words, do not invest in AVERTING a fight, invest in SURVIVING it (which might , indeed, include offing a few Archdukes)

    My intention is neither to advocate nor terrify. It is to inform. The violence started with the biological weapons attacks (plural) and it will end pretty much as you already suspect that it will. Good guys severely hurt. Bad guys dead and gone. Good time to short Tyrants and go long on gardening)

    It wasn’t the skeeters who started it. But it’s a simple cipher to figure out who’s going to finish it.


    Youze is welcome, bosco. You reminds me that I need to work on my moonwalk today. Quite the mashup today, never a dull moment.
