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.

Been going on for a long time. Hi, Hunter!

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.

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.

    Tuckers planning to converge on the promise land of boosters tomorrow.


    “ Karl Marx never spent a moment in a factory. He was a rich kid who became a journalist. ”
    Hrm. I suspect that most capitalist philosophers were also “rich kids” who “never spent a moment in a factory.”
    He died with the equivalent of about $23,000 in 2010 US dollars. That isn’t wealthy. That’s enough for a decent burial.

    I don’t hold Marx’s family against him. I, too, never worked in a factory. But I did spend about 2 years in various call centers, which I detested.

    For that matter, the “woke left” has no interest in Marx. As Nancy Pelosi said: “we’re all capitalists.”

    Chances are, without a formal education, Marx could not have effectively philosophized. And only upper-middle class and wealthy had a real chance at a college education in the 1800s.


    A convert confesses: Dr. Day and DBSmith have made a true believer of me: TPTB are trying to kill us off and possibly hack our neurology via nano-circuitry. They are really that stupid. The technology appears to be available.

    Not that the bulk of this isn’t just another tragicomedy of human errors, but that the tragedy has some serious scripting behind it of ludicrously ambitious scale.

    The poor little jerks really believe they can be the apex predator, kill off their prey, and somehow survive (“using robots”, as I often hear).

    @chooch re : bioweapon questions

    Yes, very very premeditated and even more very very a bio weapon. The names, dates, actions and documents are extensive and verifiable.

    I hardly know where to start to get your started on the requisite homework. There is literally tons of it. The Plandemic video might provide a gentle introduction, but it’s pretty much crazy-hard molecular biology and genetics stuff after that. Dr David E. Martin provides good early paper trail. And the Covid Investigative Committee has a good curated library of reference documents. Bon Voyage.


    Seabird: trying posting it on a blog of yours. They’re generally super-accommodating. I do that a lot.

    Dr. D isn’t a doctor.

    Veracious Poet

    Simply put, it’s The Takers (Hunter Gatherers’ reptilian brain) vs. The Productive (Workers frontal lobes + spiritually centered) ~ Same $hit, different century…

    Another example: Divine Right of Kings vs. Natural Law 😉

    Many institutions are not inherently “bad” (banking, legal industry, politics, et al.) until they are corrupted by The Takers to exploit The Productive ~ Slavery is of course an age old example in the extreme…

    The only way out of the nightmare humanity faces now is to simplify “The Problem” into simple, even primitive, terms.

    As civilization has evolved, The Takers have evolved into a tribal culture excelling in creation of artifices to defraud & capture the life essence of The Productive, including the proverbial “Wolf in sheep’s clothing” trick, along with a multitude of other devious devices like bribery, blackmail, demonization (gas lighting/cancelling), perversion of legal/.GOV systems et al., but the greatest trick was the glorification of #WINNING tyrannical behavior as an art form in & of itself…

    Mass formation psychosis is just another tool Hunter Gatherers employ to subjugate, control, exploit & abuse (demented entertainment) the Workers, whom are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed ~ Sort of like when a pack of wolves isolate prey & drive it into shock while toying with it.

    The long train of abuses and usurpationshave become so patently transparent, with no end in sight, will the Workers ever get to the core of the problem, see “real reality”, awaken from their Stockholm Syndrome stupor, like the Sons of Liberty did?


    Bow down to the great ones who want your obedience!
    Bow down to the great ones- right now, with expedience!
    Bow down to the great ones demanding your graces:
    And then, while you’re down there, unite their shoelaces.


    “And then, while you’re down there, unite their shoelaces.”


    Please excuse this rewrite. It’s strictly strategic:

    And then tie together both shoes by their laces.

    Why? “unite” looks just like ‘untie’

    We know. To me it’s like calling John Day Big John if he was a midget rather than the strapping stud that he is.

    “Dr. D isn’t a doctor.”

    We know. To me it’s like calling John Day Big John if he was a midget rather than the strapping stud that he is. oops. That sounds wrong. All I meant is that it’s a nickname.


    VP: put plainly, you haven’t a clue of what you’re talking about. It’s a nifty little schema but it bears very little functional interface with reality. It’s more like a plot device for a novel than anything resembling actual history as we know it to date. You in fact have it quite backwards. If you don’t think that agriculture is taking, you don’t know much about agriculture.

    But then, I have a bias in this matter: I’ve already concluded you don’t know all that much about anything. Sue me.

    Yeah! Great (hunchbacked lizard sucking) Minds Think Alike !


    And at the end of one and the start of another, for me, it’s always this basic message:

    I’m so glad I made you happy! 😉

    Dr. D

    Certainly not a medical doctor. More like a lawyer, the Devil’s Advocate.

    I’ve got one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbOTkDn49qI

    “There’s a silence surrounding me
    I can’t seem to think straight
    I’ll sit in the corner…
    I’m feeling weak now
    But I can’t show my weakness
    I sometimes wonder
    Where do we go from here?

    It doesn’t have to be like this.
    All we need to do is make sure we keep talking” — Keep Talking. Pink Floyd.

    I do not have the level of training but I agree with D Benton. …Most unfortunately. Trust me, my feeling at possibly 1/3 dying in the next five years is not elation. It’s a grim knowledge it can probably be mitigated greatly, but we have no experience with it and also no time. (also that number is millions too high. What was the study, the “A2” batches only?)

    The next thought is that of the Seven Seals, the first of which is the Four horsemen. The first of which is “Pestilence, and only then “War”, “Famine”, and “Death.” If we are only in 1 of 7, and only in the first of step 1, then we have an unfathomable distance to go to survive.

    What was Number Two again? War? As Nostradamus says, “Between the Polar powers”? That comes after 3 years of detente? And we’re pretty far along with “Famine” too. No fertilizer, no infrastructure systems, no free seeds, and no distribution of animals, alongside millions of idiotic and entitled people.

    If you need to stay awake at night and are out of No-doz, read the behavior of Berlin on the Countryside in “Dying of Money”. Does cutting the udder off a cow seem…hmm how do I put it…somewhat counterproductive to anyone? Is stealing a little food, then setting fire to the house and barn seem like a positive plan to reduce Germany’s hunger? In famine people deeply misbehave and are also idiotic, lacking all experience with essentially all things. Meanwhile, hunger is cured with an extremely complex dance of people, supplies, timing, and equipment that the slightest disruption will destroy. Remove one pin from a railway engine for example. The “destroy” in that is not the farmers, but the end-consumers, somewhere in Berlin, who helpfully did NOT leave the city to pillage. The bad Berliners who did leave and disrupted things killed them, certain as removing the tracks from the railway bridges will. They may not know who the many victims were, but they did.

    That’s only number THREE. I’m sorry if I sound ferocious sometimes, but knowing these things, having read war, famine, depression, collapse, I only feel like I’m failing by 4/5ths. I can’t possibly be stern or aggressive enough, although clearly that is advancing my case or your safety. It was the same in 2020 when I had to be such a cad in unwrapping the flaws in the pandemic statistics and responses. Despite appearances I did not like it at all, but I didn’t leave, I stuck it out, that is the only way to care. To get out of this mess I have a responsibility to do right, and pray that others can find voice to as well if I do. Since only they can do their work and not me, the results have not been good, but we need to support that voice, and the freedom to have it, by all means required.

    But perhaps. Canada really got me down as we know people just eat everything there. Didn’t matter what they said, did, just non-stop support. For the most dreadful, transparent sops. Like Mr. Ford? For years? Where’s your pride, man? And yet this happens, now nationwide. They were there all along. You think nobody’s left in America, but hour after hour, still fighting down the Dulles Brothers and the same old plans, tirelessly, for 50, 100 years everything they throw at us, which really is everything. The plan was “1984”, that’s why he chose it. So they are now FORTY YEARS behind their own schedule. And we’re still fighting, even murdered at 30k a pop. Fighting more than ever, in fact, and smarter.

    I don’t know though. Maybe I feel I didn’t sign up for this, playing Pooh sticks in the stream of a cool forest and looking where the stars meet the fireflies when I was younger. Maybe no man does, certainly not those at Sand Creek or Casa Grande. But this is earth. We are men, and even our allies are flawed. The run is much longer than you imagine as a child, and one must learn to tread with less urgency and more care. I’ve learned this much, but you can see how much harm less severity, less urgency, and too much safety and nice-speak can cause. I tried and can do no better. I can be patient and flattering, moderate and kind, but would it have got people to read the data and act faster? Faster than saying “What a jerk, I’m going to prove him wrong?” Perhaps, yes, perhaps with some, but being a fury and a gadfly, a sharp tongue, can perhaps increase the pace. And as above, increasing the urgency can save lives. Imagine if they had had 5 more years. Or even, if you like, if you invest or prepare, make your own life better, safer, more able to have wherewithal to help others without risk.

    But that only happens if we keep talking.

    After the talking? After we shut them down, shut them out, stop listening, leave? The violence begins.

    “It doesn’t have to be like this.
    All we need to do is make sure we keep talking”


    Actually, they’re my fave lollipop too:



    Oops. This one:



    “Maybe I feel I didn’t sign up for this, playing Pooh sticks in the stream of a cool forest and looking where the stars meet the fireflies when I was younger. ”

    Whoa. Doc, unless it’s spoken for, this is one of the few times I wanted to steal an entire sentence and use it for a work of fiction. (Santa, to be precise.) Is it already spoken for?


    chooch: I’ve avoided endorsing any biowepaons/depop notions until the evidence lined up uncannily straight. Take the logic you’ve expressed and go second order: imagine the virus and vakzine interacting over time. Then imagine third order elements as yet unknown (at least to me).

    One can also simply view covid itself as an accident that they exploited per above.

    Not trying to convince anyone, just trying to expand and clarify the discursive foundation.

    Trying to convince people is generally counterproductive, I’ve found, unless folks already agree. That way madness lies.(Be careful Dr. D.)


    Yay! Thanks for the tip Boscohorowitz.


    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.

    And what would qualify you as dumb would be to consider correlation on a population of one. Oh, and correlation does “imply” causation, we are talking statistics here, not absolutes so “imply” is definitely the role of correlation.


    Wouldn’t the Clinton Foundation be a sort of direct competitor to the WEF? Can the apple of discord be thrown to them?
    On another topic:
    A “megachurch” of the sect quaintly called “Converge” (an evangelical baptist group) wants to put up a 60,000 sq ft church which hopes to bring in 1200 clients every Sunday. I would guess the number of evangelical baptists within a half hour drive of here is considerably less than that. It will situate itself on a lovely, natural 19 acre site that, until recently, was occupied by a small nursing home (go figure). The parking ramp will be huge, and the lights will no doubt win the argument with the luxury car lots across the freeway from it.
    The megachurch considers homosexuality a curable sin.
    I read that one nominee under consideration by “Joe Biden” (Ketanji Brown Jackson) may also believe this. I mention this because it raises hackles- it may have done so, just now. I’m sure it’s meant to, and I’m sure there’s more to come.
    I smell a rat, and a remarkably coincidental one at that.
    Religion is like rennet to a smooth mix of disparate allies.


    “Liquid Death” is a canned water whose tag line is “death to plastic”. I am not watching the Super Bowl right now, and this commercial left me speechless. I recorded it because I’m pretty sure it won’t be run again. I was sure it was a PSA against little kids and pregnant women drinking.
    It was a real commercial. Ten year olds are chugging cans of the stuff, bumping toasts, carousing and over-imbibing to the point of passing out on the table. It ends with a hugely pregnant woman drinking it as the commercial tells you not to worry- it’s only water. “Liquid Death”. Nice.

    Thanks VP Gary. I always like pictures of Jung, too.


    DBS- I’m sorry. The poem was tongue in cheek and- I had hoped- darkly humorous. Nuts. I love lizards.
    Bosco- my mate said the same- use your line if you ever wish to repeat it.

    Death to us all (or a third of us):
    I’ll bring up a scene from the American “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” again: the male protagonist illegally enters the house and is met by the Bad Guy. Civil- though strained- conversation ensues. Next thing you know, the Good Guy is leather-strapped and chained in the basement, awaiting torture. The Bad Guy says- “people like you are sooo polite. You knew you were in mortal danger, but your good manners stopped you from saving yourself.” (extremely paraphrased)
    When do you pull the rigger? Scream? Throw the punch? Run like hell?
    When you know you are in mortal danger, what do you do?
    Here we are. What shall we do?




    Took a break to watch Kilmer play Morrison and now the only thing that makes sense is bosco’s valentines pics. Gonna sleep on it.

    @MyarentsSaidKnow O I knew that, and my reference to lizards was an inside joke between Boscohorowitz and me. He had called me a hunch backed lizard sucking genius a while back, in grudging acknowledgement of a bet we made a few months back . . . which I won. I think your shoelaces pome is great, and also that Bosco is a quick witted genius most days that he isn’t drinking, at which time he’s still a genius, only a tad slower.


    I don’t agree with
    Hunter-gathers = bad = takers vs. worker = good = Producers
    Too many assumptions and stereotypes to name.

    Maybe because I enjoy so much the hunting and gathering that I do at the local thrift stores. 😉
    I *do* like the story of The Little Red Hen.
    However, many of the wealthy in our culture didn’t exert much “sweat of their brow” to get their wealth (unlike that industrious hen) and most of the sweating masses are poor and have no bread (I.e. wealth.)


    Also, I dislike that our culture holds up “givers” as morally better than “receivers,” and then creates systems where some are elevated where they can “always give” (donate) and others are pushed into the position of always needing more than they make from their job, pushing them to endlessly receive, perpetually accepting the morally inferior position in order to survive.


    Correlation suggests that we should perform experiments to determine whether or not the relation is causal.

    MPSK:“Liquid Death” is a canned water whose tag line is “death to plastic”. I am not watching the Super Bowl right now, and this commercial left me speechless. I recorded it because I’m pretty sure it won’t be run again. I was sure it was a PSA against little kids and pregnant women drinking.

    That is exactly what I thought, if a bit surreal (and over-obvious.) But it got surreal times ten when I realized it was an actual commercial for water, god help us. That thing will be the talk of the town amongst the media critics whose biggest assignment all year is rating the Super Bowl commercials.

    This was the first game all season my 12-year-old son and I watched on a big screen tv (at his mom’s house while she was in NYC with her boyfriend for the Valentine’s Day weekend). During the regular season, we watch highlights on my computer (no commercials) and playoff games on my phone (I mute and turn the phone over.) Half the SB commercials were over my head, half were annoying, all were stupid. (Except the one where the cartoon players jumped out of the tv and trashed the house while the kids watched, that was mildly amusing.) It truly is the entertainment arm of the dystopian future, here live now.

    I have no interest in determining whether the virus release was planned in some fashion. They had me at the fact that they are fucking around with these things in the first place, in labs all over the world. The monumental hubris, stupidity, and evil is truly beyond comprehension. Then to try to make science the hero and save us. What was that book by Naomi Klein, Disaster Capitalism? I guess this could be Disaster Authoritarianism. We humans deserve our fate.

    “Liquid Death” was a potion cooked up in Professor Slughorn’s class in the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I think this is where the name was stolen from.

    Stillbirths, Miscarriages and Abortions in Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated Women
    Evidence from an Israeli hospital by Josh Guetzkow

    “The SBMA rate among vaccinated women was higher than the rate among unvaccinated women for every month except for February, which was at the very beginning of the vaccination campaign for pregnant women when only 2 births were recorded for vaccinated women. The rate reached a peak in May, with 44% of vaccinated women experiencing a stillbirth, miscarriage or abortion that month, compared to 9% among unvaccinated women. In other words, of all the recorded pregnancy outcomes among vaccinated women in May, 43% were either stillbirth, miscarriage or abortion.”
