“There were no human clinical trials to determine if the experimental COVID vaccines were safe for pregnant women. They were excluded from all the trials. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Instead, they tested it on 44 rats.”

Pfizer’s New 80,000-Page Data Dump Is A Nightmare

You probably didn’t know that Pfizer dumped 80,000 pages of documents this week. That’s because the American corporate media refused to cover it — and that’s because almost all of them took money from the Biden regime to promote the experimental vaccines and kill any critical coverage of them. Anyway, it turns out that Pfizer’s COVID vaccine was not 95% effective: the data shows it has a 12% efficacy rate. Let me repeat: 12%. That’s a “1” followed by a “2.” But wait: it gets worse. There were no human clinical trials to determine if the experimental COVID vaccines were safe for pregnant women. They were excluded from all the trials. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Instead, they tested it on 44 rats.

Pfizer deliberately cut off the clinical data trial before the bad news could be collected. We already know that Pfizer vaccine’s RNA is reverse-transcribing itself into your DNA. We already know that the vaccines increased the risk of getting COVID in children, the CDC intentionally withheld clinical data from the public, and a Moderna gene sequence patented in 2017 was found in the COVID virus spike protein. Pregnant women in the U.S. military who were coerced into taking the jab have suffered horrific side effects and “congenital malformations” in their babies. There were more than 18,900 babies born with abnormalities in 2021. We know this because a few brave whistleblowers got their hands on the Deparment of Defense’s medical database.

More than 18,900 babies. Just think about that. There’s much more news to come out about the COVID vaccines — and all of it is bad. For example, doctors around the world are starting to notice an explosion in the cancer rates among the vaccinated. [..] Let me finish with this thought: perhaps it wasn’t a good idea to re-program the DNA of half the world to produce spike proteins to “fight” a virus with a 99% survival rate?

Biden Handing Over US Sovereignty to WHO (AOLoud)

On May 22-28, 2022, ultimate control over America’s healthcare system, and hence its national sovereignty, will be delivered for a vote to the World Health Organization’s governing legislative body, the World Health Assembly (WHA). This threat is contained in new amendments to WHO’s International Health Regulations, proposed by the Biden administration, that are scheduled as “Provisional agenda item 16.2” at the upcoming conference on May 22-28, 2022. These amendments will empower WHO’s Director-General to declare health emergencies or crises in any nation and to do so unilaterally and against the opposition of the target nation.

The Director-General will be able to declare these health crises based merely on his personal opinion or consideration that there is a potential or possible threat to other nations. If passed, the Biden Administration’s proposed amendments will, by their very existence and their intention, drastically compromise the independence and the sovereignty of the United States. The same threat looms over all the U.N.’s 193 member nations, all of whom belong to WHO and represent 99.44% of the world population. These regulations are a “binding instrument of international law entered into force on 15 June 2007.” U.N. members states can be required by law to obey or acquiesce to them.


On January 18, 2022, with no public awareness, officials from the Biden Administration sent the World Health Organization these extensive amendments to strengthen WHO’s ability to unilaterally intervene into the affairs of nations merely suspected of having a “health emergency” of possible concern to other nations. The U.S. amendments cross out a critical existing restriction in the regulations: “WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the State Party in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring…” By eliminating that, and other clauses (see below), all the shackles will be removed from the Director-General of WHO, enabling him to declare health emergencies at will.

Not just a lieutenant: “Bashaw formerly served as the Army Public Health Center’s headquarters company commander.”

Army Lieutenant Convicted, Not Punished in 1st COVID Court-Martial (CHD)

1st Lt. Mark Bashaw of Maryland, who in April was court-martialed for his refusal to comply with COVID-19 testing and masking requirements, was convicted but will not be punished. As previously reported by The Defender, the U.S. Army charged Bashaw, under the Article 92, Failure to Obey an Order, with: failure to take a medical test, failure to wear a mask and failure to leave the workplace for telework. Bashaw formerly served as the Army Public Health Center’s headquarters company commander. The case, United States v 1LT Mark C. Bashaw, was heard April 28-29 at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, home of the Army Public Health Center. About 30 spectators attended the hearing, which was open to the public.

Bashaw plead not guilty to the charges (a telework work charge was dropped at the hearing). The Army recommended formal reprimand and $25,000 in forfeiture of pay. Judge Robert Cohen found Bashaw guilty of the two charges but recommended no additional punishment beyond the conviction. Judge Cohen commented on Bashaw’s exemplary 16 years of meritorious service during sentencing. “Receiving no punishment at a court-martial is not without precedent,” installation spokesperson Amburr Reese told Army Times. “While the Army does not categorize court-martial convictions as felonies or misdemeanors, many civilian jurisdictions treat a conviction in special court-martial convened by military judge alone, which this one was, as a misdemeanor.”

Because Bashaw is not facing punishment, the flag on his records will be removed and he is now eligible to be promoted to the rank of Captain, which was withheld in November 2021. Bashaw disagreed with the judge’s determination but respected the decision. Bashaw also said he understood he can appeal the ruling. He also explained his reasons for challenging what he thought to be an unlawful order, stating he relied on faith. Judge Cohen determined the Army’s orders to wear an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) mask and to take an EUA test were lawful. However, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), EUA products and tests are voluntary, based on an investigational or experimental status, and lack liability and consumer protections.

“..the only thing more dangerous to human life than governments is a naive immune system..”

Choice Quotes from Bill Gates’s New Book (Tucker)

Imagine yourself sidled up to a bar. A talkative guy sits down on the stool next to you. He has decided that there is one thing wrong with the world. It can be literally anything. Regardless, he has the solution. It’s interesting and weird for a few minutes. But you gradually come to realize that he is actually crazy. His main point is wrong and so his solutions are wrong too. But the drinks are good, and he is buying. So you put up with it. In any case, you will forget the whole thing in the morning. In the morning, however, you realize that he is one of the world’s richest men and he is pulling the strings of many of the world’s most powerful people. Now you are alarmed. In a nutshell, that’s what it’s like to read Bill Gates’s new book How to Prevent the Next Pandemic.

The main theme is implied in the title. With enough money, intelligence, and power, along with technological know-how at the helm, the next pathogen to come along can be stopped in its tracks. Where the bug goes after that he never explains. Presumably it just disappears. Like a computer virus, it exists but doesn’t ruin your harddrive. What are the historical examples of such a thing? There are none via avoidance, testing, contract tracing, and control of the human population. This theory of virus control – the notion that muscling the population makes a prevalent virus shrink into submission and disappear – is a completely new invention, the mechanization of a primitive instinct.

Smallpox occupies a unique position among infectious diseases as the only one affecting humans that has been eradicated. There are reasons for that: a stable pathogen, a great vaccine, and a hundred years of focused public health work. This happened not due to lockdowns but from the careful and patient application of traditional public-health principles. Can that same experience be repeated in every case? It’s worth investigating and thinking about. The reason is that the attempt to crush a respiratory virus through universal avoidance could be worse than allowing endemicity to it to develop throughout the population. Eradication is not the same thing as perpetual pathogenic avoidance. The former is great but the latter is deeply dangerous: the only thing more dangerous to human life than governments is a naive immune system. Gates’s plan, even if it had a chance of working which it does not, could create exactly that. Not to understand the difference is an egregious intellectual error.

“Musk anticipates making thousands of new hires, swelling the ranks to around 11,000 employees, up from 7,500 currently.”

Elon Musk Plans To Fire 1,000 Twitter Staff, Quintuple Revenue (DM)

Elon Musk is planning to fire 1,000 staffers at Twitter as soon as his purchase of the social media platform is complete. It’s believed he will fire many of the firm’s woke staff following the transfer of ownership which will take around six months, after which Musk is likely to wield the ax. But then within the next three years, Musk anticipates making thousands of new hires, swelling the ranks to around 11,000 employees, up from 7,500 currently. Much of the new talent is likely to be in the field of engineering. Numbers at the company would fluctuate rising to 9,225 employees this year before falling to 8,332 in 2023. Then adding a further 2,700 workers by 2025.

Most of the jobs being shelved would occur during the takeover period, according to a pitch deck Musk presented this week to investors and seen by the New York Times. On a company level, Musk has previously floated the idea of closing down the San Francisco headquarters in order to save money and that board members may also not receive a salary, shaving off another $3 million in expenses. The changes Musk makes are part of his plan to increase Twitter’s annual revenue by five times current levels to $26.4 billion by 2028, up from $5 billion last year. Advertising on the platform is set to fall to 45% of total revenue under Musk, down from about 90% in 2020.

By 2028, he plans for ads to generate $12 billion in revenue in 2028, while subscriptions are expected to pull in another $10 billion, according to the report. Musk is said to favor a subscription-based model over advertiser funding, as it would make Twitter less beholden to advertiser pressure. He has even suggested users could pay with cryptocurrency, including joke currency Dogecoin which Musk has long had an affection for. Other revenue would come from businesses such as data licensing. Musk has also tweeted about potentially monetizing tweets, although he has not provided specific details. Musk also plans to see Twitter’s cash flow rise to $3.2 billion in 2025 and $9.4 billion in 2028.

“Say what you will about Elon, he does have a large fanbase of ppl excited to work for him..”

Job Interest In Twitter Up 250% Since Elon Musk Moved To Take Over (Fortune)

Elon Musk cast Twitter’s future into uncertainty when he made a successful $44 billion bid to acquire the company last month. He will take over as temporary CEO once the deal is complete, CNBC reported Thursday morning. While countless Musk fans, and a slight majority of Americans—59%—approve of the takeover according to recent data from The Harris Poll, some current Twitter staff worry that it will dramatically change the company’s culture, and overall direction. It’s still unclear how a Musk-run Twitter might impact the company’s ability to retain current staff and recruit new employees. The company presented the takeover as a potential threat to its staffing abilities in an SEC filing Monday.

But at least casual interest in open positions at the company has skyrocketed since the Tesla billionaire showed serious interest in taking over the company. On Thursday, Daniel Zhao, a senior economist and data scientist at the job insights platform Glassdoor, tweeted that interest in job openings at the social media giant was up 263% between April 24 and April 30. In a statement to Fortune, Zhao clarified that interest is defined by the average daily clicks on Twitter job postings on the platform, compared to the average daily job clicks in a March 2022 baseline prior to the news breaking of Musk’s plans for the company. Though clicks do not necessarily correlate to actual job applications submitted, and likely reflect current media attention, the increase shows that people appear to be interested not just in the media story, but in work available at the company.

“Say what you will about Elon, he does have a large fanbase of ppl excited to work for him,” Zhao tweeted. “He’s much more likely to capitalize on that attraction as CEO than owner.” On Friday, Musk shared some of his own thoughts about hiring at Twitter, sharing Fortune’s reporting. “If Twitter acquisition completes, company will be super focused on hardcore software engineering, design, infosec & server hardware,” he tweeted on Friday morning. “I strongly believe that all managers in a technical area must be technically excellent. Managers in software must write great software or it’s like being a cavalry captain who can’t ride a horse!” he added.

“mran Khan was a serious thorn in the side of the west because he kept impressing on Pakistanis that the Forever War in Afghanistan was militarily unwinnable.”

Terror from Balochistan (Escobar)

The suicide bomber was a woman, Shaari Baloch, alias Bramsh, who detonated her vest just as a van carrying Institute staff members approached the entrance. The attack was claimed by the BLA’s Majeed Brigade, which stressed that this was the first time they used a female suicide bomber. Shaari Baloch was a schoolteacher with a Zoology degree, enrolled to pursue a second Master’s degree, married to a dentist and professor at Makran Medical College in her hometown of Turbat, in southern Balochistan. Her three brothers include a doctor, a deputy director at a government-funded project, and a civil servant. So Shaari Baloch was far from being a mere destitute online-indoctrinated Salafi-jihadi.

[..] A Carnegie Institute report noted how “many Baloch nationalist leaders now come from the urbanized districts of Kech, Panjgur, and Gwadar (and to a lesser extent from Quetta, Khuzdar, Turbat, Kharan, and Lasbela). They are well connected to Karachi and Gulf cities, where tribal structures are non-existent. In fact, while there is violence all over the province, the insurgency seems to concentrate mainly in these urbanized areas.” Suicide bomber Shaari Baloch came from Turbat, the province’s second largest city, where the BLA is very much active. From the point of view of the usual suspects, these are choice assets, especially after the death of important tribal leaders such as Akbar Bugti. The report duly noted how “the educated and middle-class Baloch youth are in the forefront” of the insurgency.

The anti-China instrumentalization of the BLA also ties in with the regime-change parliament operation in Islamabad that recently deposed former prime minister Imran Khan, who was always a fierce adversary of the American “Forever War” in Afghanistan. Khan resolutely denied Pakistan’s use in “over the horizon” US military ops: that was one of the key reasons for him to be ousted. Now, with a pliant, Washington-approved, new regime in town, a miracle has just happened: the Pentagon is about to clinch a formal agreement with Islamabad to use Pakistani airspace to – what else – keep interfering in Afghanistan.

Beijing, as well as other members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), won’t be amused. Only weeks before the white coup, Khan had met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and once again underscored how Pakistan and China are “iron brothers.” Imran Khan was a serious thorn in the side of the west because he kept impressing on Pakistanis that the Forever War in Afghanistan was militarily unwinnable. He knew how all the proxies – including the BLA – that destabilized both Afghanistan and Pakistan for decades were, and continue to be, part of US covert operations.

“Will America cough up “Joe Biden” like a hairball to get those trucks running again?”

Nausea Rules (Kunstler)

Europe, the old original homeland of Western Civ, isn’t just losing face, it’s blowing its head clean off going along with “Joe Biden’s” economic war. Are Germany, France, and the rest of that bunch really so dead-set on jamming Ukraine into NATO that they’re willing to go full medieval for it? By which I mean sitting in the cold and dark with empty plates. That’s a hard way to go just to prove somebody else’s point.

The war in Ukraine itself was apparently losing its sex appeal for the click-hungry news media. No matter which way The New York Times and friends tried to spin it, they failed to grok both Russia’s determination to neutralize Ukraine and its ability to get the job done, even if it takes a longer-than-expected grind to finish. That’s how important it was to Russia that Ukraine not become a forward missile base and bio-weapons lab for its adversaries. When that operation concludes, the West will be left economically crippled and humiliated — which are conditions that historically portend regime change. Will America cough up “Joe Biden” like a hairball to get those trucks running again? Might the Dems themselves resort to releasing the kraken known as Hunter’s laptop just to send the old grifter packing?

In the meantime, the leaked Roe v Wade cancellation ruling shoved the Ukraine fiasco offstage so as to provoke more useful histrionics for the dreaded midterm elections upcoming. The poorly-understood truth is that said ruling will only send the abortion question back to the individual states. But let’s get real: places like New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, and California are not going to enact any new anti-abortion laws, and that’s where most of the people having hebephrenic breakdowns over the issue live. Which is to say there’s little danger that the shrieking denizens of these Blue states will lack abortions. So, how much has the party only been pretending that Roe v Wade is its primal touchstone?

“..the court has become a tragic anachronism in our age of rage: an institution that relied on the integrity and ethics of its members and staff..”

How Years of Attacks on the Court Created a “By Any Means” Mentality (Turley)

What is clear is that the court has become a tragic anachronism in our age of rage: an institution that relied on the integrity and ethics of its members and staff at a time when such values are treated as naive. It relied on justices and clerks alike remaining bound to the institution and to each other by a constitutional faith. But we are living in an age of constitutional atheism, so it is only surprising that it took this long. For years, politicians, pundits and academics have called for reckless political action against the court. Many Democrats in Congress have pledged to achieve political goals “by any means necessary,” including packing or gutting the court. Democratic leaders have hammered away at the court and its members, demanding that the court adhere to political demands or face institutional disaster.

The threats have grown increasingly raw and reckless as politicians sought to outdo each other in their attacks. In the age of rage, restraint is a lethal liability. The message has been repeated like a drumbeat: The ends justify the means. Recently, Roberts even went public with a warning over “inappropriate political influence” affecting the court. Yet, the day before this leak, the court itself defied critics who portrayed it as hopelessly and dysfunctionally divided with another unanimous decision. It ruled in a major case on speech that Boston could not discriminate against a religious organization that wanted to hoist a flag outside of its city hall. It spoke with one voice in defense of shared constitutional values.

Given the relentless calls from political leaders, we may have been naive to think that a staff member or clerk would not yield to the same “ends justify the means” rationale. Former Justice Louis Brandeis once warned that “Our government … teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”

Zelensky Critic Arrested in Spain on Orders of Ukrainian Government (SN)

A popular YouTuber and critic of President Zelensky was arrested in Spain at the behest of the Ukrainian government on charges of treason and faces extradition, despite publicly condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Yes, really. Anatoly Shariy, who has almost 3 million YouTuber subscribers, was detained on an international arrest warrant in a joint operation by Spanish and Ukrainian police, as well as international “partners,” according to the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU). They claim that Shariy has been acting on behalf of “foreign” forces by infringing Ukraine’s national security via his media commentary on the war and engaging in “incitement of hatred.” Shariy’s arrest “is more proof that every traitor of Ukraine will sooner or later receive his well-deserved punishment. It is inevitable,” the SBU asserted.


The blogger had previously been granted asylum by the EU in 2012 after fleeing persecution by the government of Viktor Yanukovich, who was pro-Russian. Despite condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Shariy’s criticism of Zelensky’s response was apparently enough for him to be targeted by Ukrainian authorities. Having had his passport seized, Shariy is now in Barcelona under a travel ban until a decision on his extradition to Ukraine is made. President Zelensky’s representative at the Constitutional Court said Shariy will “face a Ukrainian court and will be held liable in line with Ukrainian laws.” In response to his arrest, Shariy posted a picture of his wife feeding parrots in Barcelona, commenting, “This really is a comedy.” Shariy’s arrest once again puts to bed the idea that Ukraine is some kind of beacon of democracy, when its authorities treat dissidents exactly the same way dissidents are treated in Russia.

The Whitmer case may have broad implications.

Jan. 6: 80 ‘Suspicious Actors’ and ‘Material Witnesses’ Under Scrutiny (ET)

Defense attorneys are seeking to identify and investigate 80 suspicious actors and material witnesses, some of whom allegedly ran an entrapment operation against the Oath Keepers on January 6, 2021, and committed crimes including the removal of security fencing, breaching police lines, attacking officers, and inciting crowds to storm into the Capitol. In a motion (pdf) and supplement (pdf) filed after 11 p.m. on May 5 in federal court in Washington, attorney Brad Geyer listed 80 people, some of whom he said could be government agents or provocateurs. The people are seen on video operating in a coordinated fashion across the Capitol grounds on January 6, the attorney alleged.

Geyer’s suggestion of an entrapment scheme will resonate with dozens of January 6 defense attorneys, coming shortly after two men were acquitted of an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D). There was a hung jury on charges against two other defendants. The jury in that case was allowed to consider FBI entrapment as a defense. Geyer, who represents Oath Keepers defendant Kenneth Harrelson, is seeking a court order from U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta compelling federal prosecutors to help identify the individuals and disclose whether they were working for law enforcement or any government agency on January 6. Geyer wrote that the information is exculpatory, which compels the government to produce it. Other Oath Keepers defendants are expected to join in the motion.

The May 5 filing comes on the heels of an April 12 Oath Keepers motion that alleged at least 20 “assets” from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were embedded in the crowds on January 6. According to the new filing, video evidence the defense gained access to only recently shows that some of the 80 people attacked police, other people, and members of the Oath Keepers; entered the Capitol on the west side “with apparent permission or acquiescence of government actors”; opened the Columbus Doors on the east side of the Capitol “from the inside, possibly with even further assistance of government actors”; and deployed “sophisticated crowd-behavior techniques,” orienting themselves between protesters and police.

“This is the way disinformation is really exposed, not by some contrived government agency, but by evidence presented in court that gets at the truth of what happened,”

Ex-FBI Intel Chief: Clinton Campaign Used ‘Contrived Disinformation’ (JTN)

As the Biden administration pushes its new Disinformation Governance Board, the FBI’s former intelligence chief says he is now convinced Democrat Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign used “contrived disinformation” to try to mislead Americans into believing Donald Trump was a Russian asset. “This is more than just political dirty tricks,” retired Assistant Director for Intelligence Kevin Brock told the “Just the News, Not Noise” television show Wednesday. “Political dirty tricks usually have some foundation in truth. But they just made stuff up.” Brock, one of the bureau’s most respected former executives, said he has been impressed with the way Special Counsel John Durham has used the prosecution of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann to expose how the false Russia collusion narrative was constructed.

Sussmann, who has pleaded innocent and faces trial at the end of the month, is charged with lying to the FBI in fall 2016 when he denied he was acting on behalf of a client in bringing the bureau what turned out to be false allegations that Trump had a secret communications channel with the Kremlin. Durham has exposed recent evidence showing the Clinton campaign’s own researchers were skeptical of the allegation, which one described as a “red herring.” The underlying data permitted no more than an “inference” at best, according to another. Last week, prosecutors unveiled an email showing a journalist had told the campaign research team weeks before it approached the FBI that one of the Trump-Russia allegations was “bullshit.”

“This is the way disinformation is really exposed, not by some contrived government agency, but by evidence presented in court that gets at the truth of what happened,” Brock said of the prosecutor’s recent evidentiary filings in court. “What Durham is methodically doing, is laying out a case that the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat Party used contrived disinformation in a conspiracy, in a conspiratorial way, to deceive the American voter ahead of the election.”

“Special Counsel Robert Mueller, intelligence officials and Democrats misled the public about the hack.”

Claim Russians Hacked The DNC Could Have Relied On ‘Spoofed’ Data (Fed.)

The Georgia Tech cyber security experts ensnared in the Alfa Bank hoax conducted a retrospective analysis of the Democratic National Committee hack, according to the Department of Defense. While the results of that analysis have yet to be made public, internal documents obtained by The Federalist reveal that Georgia Tech’s computer scientists believed CrowdStrike’s approach to investigating computer intrusions relied on the use of easily “spoofed/impersonated” signals of traffic.

In June 2016, about one month before WikiLeaks released a trove of internal communiques revealing top DNC officials plotted to destroy Bernie Sanders’ presidential ambitions in favor of their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, the DNC publicly confirmed that its server had been hacked. In the Washington Post article breaking the story, the DNC maintained that the private security firm it had hired to investigate the hack, CrowdStrike, had concluded two Russian military intelligence groups, branded Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear, bore responsibility for the intrusions.

Given that Democrats and the media would later rely on CrowdStrike’s conclusion that Putin’s agents had hacked the DNC to support the Russia collusion hoax, those seeking to unravel Spygate paid particular attention to CrowdStrike’s initial assessment. The declassification of CrowdStrike President Shawn Henry’s December 2017 testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, that “there was no ‘concrete evidence’ that the emails were stolen electronically,” later raised more “questions about whether Special Counsel Robert Mueller, intelligence officials and Democrats misled the public” about the hack.

A comment on “The Shanghai Lockdown: A Memetic Analysis”
by “Anonymous”

The Whole Planet Is a Pot And We’re All Frogs (Ugo Bardi)

Shanghai has always been seen as the most “civilized” city in China. Shanghai is often called Le Paris de l’Orient, it is an “international” first tier city… probably the top Chinese city in terms of openness, quality of life and access to medical care. Nobody expected to see such levels of insanity in Shanghai… in other areas of the country, yes, but not here. Looking at the conditions in the quarantine centers… Containers without doors in a field, tents set on a highway, toilets flooded with feces… open air zoo. They come take positive cases in big buses and ambulances almost daily. The police is patrolling streets at all times and we are unable to even set foot on the sidewalk. Every building that had a positive case is either: shut down with barriers OR has 1-2 men in a tent monitoring 24/7 (imagine all the manpower required.)

Currently there are 3-4 of those tents in my compound. It’s basically Martial Law. The psychological toll is quite high. The monetary one must be hard of lower classes. Some neighbors have mental breakdowns. Some people spray alcohol in the air while walking to get tested… You’d think the Plague is upon us. Some people were getting messages in group chat about “foreign spies” and “foreign media fueling anti-China conspiracies.” Good ol’ shift the blame tricks. I have been in lockdown since mid-March, got tested 35 times, and lost about 12 pounds. The local governmental commune gave us a little bit of food, but barely enough to survive.

Luckily we had some preps and were able to order some food. Now most delivery guys are not allowed to deliver to our address. We can get a bit of food, but we need to get imaginative to create new recipes (boiled/sweet and sour/spicy/fermented cabbage.) My take is: It could be a test for something much bigger (ie., war, energy crisis) or they are truly afraid of the unrest if lots of old people were to die. Chinese people tend to get emotional and the last thing the authorities want to deal with is mobs lynching doctors in the streets. Is the frog slowly boiling in the pot? I think so. Except the whole planet is pot and we’re all frogs.

    While inflation is +20% and officially +8%, Fed so scared they hauled out Kash-n-carry to say “a neutral funds rate is 2%.” Two. One TENTH of the likely rate. AND they need to be HIGHER than inflation by at least a little. 25% rates to stop inflation now?

    …Really they’re just going to crash the market and stampede the money into the U.S. and US$. They’re not going to get to 25%, nor plan to. At quadrillion in US$ loans worldwide, over 3% should crash everything. Where exactly? Well they don’t’ care. But they have to make it look like it’s not their fault…after printing $6 Trillion and not raising rates for 15 YEARS anywhere between 1% and today’s 20% inflation.

    “Michael Brennan” We don’t listen to our enemies, nor anyone who even MIGHT disagree with us. That’s why we’re the schmart people. Putin can say anything he wants, as intelligently as Einstein. We’ll eat glue in pointy hats smartly ignoring him as the mushroom clouds blossom.

    “We already know that Pfizer vaccine’s RNA is reverse-transcribing itself into your DNA”

    Meh. Did somebody do the incredibly arduous and difficult human DNA tests on this before and after? No, we THINK it does this and have good reason to. But be careful.

    “ Biden Handing over US Sovereignty to WHO (AOLoud)”

    He can’t. It’s probably impossible at all, but would at a minimum require a treaty passed by the Senate. Not that I’m not well aware not one passes any laws, nor follows them. We may be party to an existing UN/WHO treaty, but you can’t just keep writing on the bottom of the scroll carte blanche like that. It’s sad that we’re at a point where nobody knows even the rudiments of law. Nor laughs the morons out of the house, refusing to comply.

    “Khan was a serious thorn in the side of the west because he kept impressing on Pakistanis that the Forever War in Afghanistan was militarily unwinnable.”

    How dare he be correct and tell the truth! There’s nothing we hate more. Except all life on earth.

    “What’s out there, rather, is a model of breakdown and collapse which the Woked-up, globalist neo-Jacobins are doing everything possible to hasten.” –Kunstler

    “Burn it all down.” Amirite? That means “destroy all the value”. “Kill all the people.” I mean, how could “Burn it all down” mean anything else? Does it mean “set up a church picnic to feed the poor”?

    “Are Germany, France, and the rest of that bunch really so dead-set on jamming Ukraine into NATO that they’re willing to go full medieval for it? By which I mean sitting in the cold and dark with empty plates?”

    They’ve been very clear this is their exact plan for decades. Because the PEOPLE will be dying in the cold and dark, while they have 5-star dinners maskless in their bunkers. There is no “The Germans”. Nations don’t exist, only power blocks, special interests, and corporations. It’s a Big Club, and you’re not in it.

    “Zelensky Critic Arrested in Spain on Orders of Ukrainian Government (SN)”

    Ukraine runs all of Europe and tells the President of the United States what to do. “Biden is consulting with Zelensky.” So Ukraine is not the 51st state, au contraire! The United States is a satellite province of Ukraine, sacrificing the budgets and needs of every American and every American State to send them $33B in hours. Who knew?

    Also, legal jurisdictions are now always worldwide, regardless of citizenship and location, or local laws. A Julian precedent, upheld by Australia, Britain, Europe, Ireland, and the United States. Now shut up and DO WHAT YOU’RE TOLD. Kill yourself and be quick about it.

    “This is the way disinformation is really exposed, not by some contrived government agency, but by evidence presented in court”

    And against all Federal Law, enshrined in the Constitution as a basic human right, getting to court takes 5 years, and that’s if you aren’t denied standing. Armstrong, a near-billionaire, whose judge openly edited the written court testimony, claimed bank money “just disappeared” without a trace or transfer, and imprisoned the accused for life on the basis of Contempt of Court, was held for seven years in Rikers and attempted murder twice. Pretty common. Why shouldn’t the Feds just always delay your trial until after your death? It’s only logical if they can hold you in the meantime.

    They had FBI informants? Ohhhhh, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. This firm legal challenge says 80 agents surrounded, staged, and boxed in the OathKeepers, shoving them into the Capitol like a mob, bodily, like fire in a theatre. At the same time, they regularly talked to capitol police, and turned around and pepper sprayed the general crowd to keep off the non-entrapees until the coordinated opening of the capital doors.

    The capital doors? Yes, the Columbus doors, and I missed this. A solid bronze, 5,000 pound pair of doors that couldn’t have been breached with TNT. They are magnetically locked from the inside, controlled at the security booth with a PIN. Poof. They magically opened from the inside.

    No. Way.

    But speaking of, how’s the Mostly Peaceful doxxing of Supreme Court justices, and the Mostly Peaceful protests of people collected in front of their house by calls for their murder and removal? FBI? FBI?

    “As Average Apartment Size Shrinks, Renters Are Finding Best Deals in the Midwest”

    Plenty of housing in the U.S. More than we can ever need and houses are falling down, collapsing everywhere, and not just Flyoverland, but Baltimore and the Blue cities too. And prices aren’t that bad yet. Just not in the cities that all f’d themselves. By f’ing others.

    In starting WWIII, a requirement if the Pentagon provides Intel, Missiles, and oversight…even if they have some Ukrainian janitor push the button…the Pentagon now denies reports they sunk the Moskva. So…Derp State just releases crap to kindergarden reporters who will believe anything they’re told? In the hopes Russia will nuke somebody? Certainly follows from the relentless, egregious attacks on Russia up to now, but certainly since Inauguration. Meanwhile the real Pentagon had nothing to do with it? Hmmmm, not sure I believe that either.

    One thing’s for sure, like every thing, every body says on every day, they say both a thing and its opposite, and expect you to believe it. OR ELSE. If you believe one, you’re in big trouble mister! If you believe the other, you’re in big trouble mister! And as the Swedish PM said: “This is all your fault! ” What a bunch of psychos. Abusive, narcissistic sociopaths.

    “Russia has refused to be baited by the US into widening the war, despite [relentless] provocations.”

    The U.S., being psychotic, believe the enemy will simply do what they say, and is doing what they’re told. They have ordered Russia to blitzkrieg with total war into Ukr. They did not. They order Russia to respond to attacks like Moskva and chemical plants. They did not. They order Russia to expand the war widely and be spread too thin. They did not. And they needed Russia fully committed, their forces far from Moscow on the front, so they could expand from I dunno, Estonia, etc. They did not.

    So instead Moscow tolerated some irritating casualties to enter Ukr with 1/3 of what they could have, then slowly grind up their enemies, relentlessly, remorselessly, thoroughly, brutally, Biblically, in the Russian fashion, such that history books remember it. And take all the south so Crimea is not surrounded, and quite possibly Odessa someday so Kiev is surrounded. Russia is still fully, completely fortified, and is not distracted with other fronts. That takes the loss of men, but such is war. They have also kept the pipelines open so Europe can stew and f themselves and not become the social enemy of the common European, of which there are many. The mobilization of all Europeans into Russia would most probably overrun them in a WWII fashion, and despite a lot of loose blather that is very hard to do when Russia continues to cook your food for you. All these actions are forbidden by the West, and they write endless articles and tweets on how stupid they are, and/or are not actually doing them.

    For the Russian part, what’s the point of talking? Russia’s ex is an abusive, mentally ill psycho. Words only inflame a flashpoint, cause her to have psychotic episodes. You don’t call her on the phone. You don’t respond to her ridiculous accusations. You merely do what must be done and hope for a resolution. Only your actions will prove your case and your honor now. Like other crazy ex’s, you could destroy her in 60 seconds if you wanted to. Russia does not want to. That is the harder road, and the man is always guilty unless overwhelmingly proven otherwise.

    Man (or woman), sometimes you get it and it is The Wounded Couple dynamic vis a vis America’s (The West’s) interaction with Russia. (Hat tip; projective identification)

    I almost like this, your rendition here, because there is whole cottage industry, couple’s therapy, devoted to saving “the coupled relationship” at the expense/identity of the abused side. Of course that’s before one ever touches on the species of men and occasionally women, The White Knights, easily bamboozled by the manipulative narcissist/borderline defenses:

    “For the Russian part, what’s the point of talking? Russia’s ex is an abusive, mentally ill psycho. Words only inflame a flashpoint, cause her to have psychotic episodes.

    Don’t international relations with Russis sound like this?:

    And this:

    The cell phone data around Demtard inspired ‘ballot drop boxes’ in the 2020 election is a genius idea.

    There should be a correspondence between unique cell phone GPS pings and the number of ballot ‘votes’ deposited in the 2020 drop boxes.

    There is not.

    Which means many ballots were deposited by a few individual’s unique cell phones.

    Unimpeachable evidence unless you want to argue cell phone data is inaccurate.

    So where are the US Attorneys pursuing federal voter fraud cases?

    Asleep in their beds?

    Maybe like what the Woketards did by doxxing the home addresses of conservative Supreme Clown judges should be done to all the US Attorneys, you know, so ‘peaceful protests’ can be organized 24/7/365 to ‘encourage’ them to actually do their jobs and investigate a serious crime committed during the 2020 election.

    This cell phone data pattern of voter drop box fraud is very solid evidence, but like everything else in the Empire of Lies, it will be ignored in broad daylight like the mountain of evidence showing Mass Murder with vaxes.

    Professor:

    Your “little skiff” comment reminded me of a boat trip my Wife and I took from Kingston to Ottawa and back via the inland Rideau Canal.

    We had a 16 foot power boat. At the first set of locks at Kingston there was quite a long line up of big boats waiting to enter the locks. Being at the end of the long que, we were pleasantly surprised to be called by the lock master to enter the lock, ahead of many still waiting big boats The lock was already full with large boats but we were directed to enter up the middle, in-between the big boats.

    As we slowly entered up the middle of the lock, we were surprised at how helpful the people on the big boats were. They all had their long poles ready to help guide us up the middle of the lock, between their big boats. As the now closed lock filled up with water, the people in the big boats, on either side of us, used their poles to helped us maintain our middle position in the swirling flow of water. This process was repeated 4 more times as this set of locks had 4 locks, each raising us about 20 feet a lock.

    After exiting the lock first, before all of the big boats, I said to my Wife the rich bastards were more worried about our crappy boat scratching the paint on the sides of their beautiful big boats, than helping us!

    Every once in a while, a big boat would reposition some of their boat bumpers so we could hold onto the sides of their boat as the lock waters swirled around us. We soon learned these were friendly folks.

    Oh noes, she impregnated him. Liberals are a special breed these days can’t you see?

    Clinton’s, Obama’s, Biden’s- all criminals. Covidian Cult Branch- all insane.

    They want to control you or murder you if you do not obey their cult command ideologies.

    No thanks, I’ll pass on both non-options.

    So what to do? I mantra daily, not to change anyone else, but to cultivate myself as an organic human be-ing.

    Don’t fuck with me, and I you. Plain reality, the Liberal Covidian Democrat Cult have pushed too far into forced injections for a job or for a child to attend indoctrination education. They are censuring and now trying to own truth and force what to think, not how to think. They are toying with Nuclear War, actively forcing Conventional War and destroying Economies.

    They are actively poisoning bodies and destroying minds- actively hunting children for sexual rape, health rape and mental rape.

    If only they were noble enough to take the Vietnamese Monks path of self immolation. But the desires they have and the 3 poisons they wield- greed, anger, ignorance/delusion must be taken from their clutches to render them powerless.

    They are completely out of their minds and out of control.

    No amount of goodwill, legal ramifications, voting, praying or mantras will reverse their path of total destruction. Did not work with Adolf’s, Stalin’s, Mao’s or Franco’s cult and it will not work with the Liberal Cult. Clearly it is Americas turn to self destruct and destroy the World with it. Ready to stop this bs insanity yet?

    They have broken the unspoken social contract of human decency.

    You can probably surmise the steps that will be required to de-Cultify the West (Putin did). No amount of wishful thinking will work- The Republicans could see Russia from Alaska- the Dems can see Ukraine from DC. None of them can see decency in their own hearts.

    Their madness has been forced upon us and into us literally. For the sake of all species and future life and a beautiful planet-

    Harkening to the series of posts from Shanghai…
    This has been bothering me for weeks, now.
    Why?
    This is VERY expensive for China, especially in political capital. They act like another bioweapon is already on the loose, but they are just saying “COVID”. They are isolating and testing and isolating and testing, and it’s swab tests.
    One guy said he’s had “35 tests”.
    What are they looking for besides COVID? Anything? My fevered imagination?
    The Chinese government is a frugal government (Graft is different, of course.)

    What if there was a sneeze going around that would kill your liver?
    Adenovirus is a very mild virus, and our immune systems barely notice it, so it can be used as a “vector” for DNA vaccines (A-Z, J&J, Sputnik).
    Adenovirus never causes deadly hepatitis, until last month…

    Odessa without any access to the sea can be achieved without invading Odessa.

    moves weapons orders from Pentagon warehouses in the U.S. to branches of the Empire of Bases in Europe and then to the NATO eastern front in Poland, where they are trucked across Ukraine just in time to be duly incinerated by Russian precision strikes:
    Apparently, It takes +200 chips for every smart missile. I assume that Russia will get their chips from China, delivered on time to build new missiles.

    History may eventually register, 77 years after the end of WWII, that neocon/neoliberalcon psychos in Washington silos instigating an inter-Slavic war by ordering Kiev to launch a blitzkrieg against Donbass was the spark that led to the Fall of the U.S. Empire.

    A frugal government. War on the cheap.

    Clearly Shanghai is V E R Y important. And I don’t believe the Covid one bit, as no one has stopped it’s contagion in two years, so China won’t now. Meaning, why isn’t it popping up everywhere nearby, who are also shut down?

    Let’s put pieces together. China will collapse if the Empire doesn’t collapse first. If Russia collapses, China is next, they are co-joined. Russia is the initiative in facing the Empire in the West. NATO predictably engages, slowly, with lies, in dragging escalation.

    What if Shanghai is boycotting us. An almost certainty. But they are not weakening the U.S. and Canada (they are, badly). They are halting a very SPECIFIC commodity. One that isn’t obvious. One that isn’t targeted, it must be at least a small amount common. How about Russia starts the War, NATO starts the arms dealers, Powell and Pelosi start the printing presses. …And the whole machine is halted for the loss of a horseshoe nail? That is, a relatively common silicon chip or component used in all our hardware.

    All Russia has to do is withstand these chips thrown at them on the tips of missiles, to vaporize these chips when they come in theatre, and all NATO runs out of gunpowder, defenseless.

    Seem like welding some people in houses? A whole lot fewer than would die in a war. And China doesn’t have to waste time on making tank shells and bombs.

    On January 18, 2022, with no public awareness, officials from the Biden Administration sent the World Health Organization these extensive amendments to strengthen WHO’s ability to unilaterally intervene into the affairs of nations merely suspected of having a “health emergency” of possible concern to other nations.

    Now we know why Gates is funding WHO, another reason Biden-the-most-corrupt was installed as president and why a crook from Ethiopia-the-most-corrupt was promoted to lead WHO. What a great scam: remove sovereignty from countries one small bit at a time until Davos rules the world.

    We will know a lot more about the Davos plan if both China and Russia also decide to sign up to the Gates-WHO global take over. All the sovereignty-traitors will have to reveal themselves. We already know a lot of them: Trudeau, Ardern, Morrisson, Macron, Marin, Andersson, Scholz etc.

    We already know that Gates is an enemy of humanity and the USA – look how many people he has injured with vaccines yet he still walks free – but now he is vying fot the humanity-enemy-number-one spot and will no-doubt continue to walk free.

    The west’s ports, railways, and trucks are being shut down.
    Shortages of goods to move is why.
    You can’t just turn the west’s supply chain back on.

    Hundreds, if not thousands, more Ukrainians just got silently cancelled today.
    Being cancelled means any evidence that you ever existed, are permanently erased.
    Canceling creates no noise, only an empty void of silence.

    @Dr.D and WES: I agree that shutting down these cities in China effectively embargos San Diego and Los Angeles to a degree, and maybe some specific, critical things are completely cut off for a specific injury to occur, but I’m not convinced that the extreme cost to China is worth it to China.

    China is not locking down the pearl river delta or Hong Kong, so there must be something specific to Shanghai and Beijing as the other huge ports are working.

    I suspect that part of the reason may be that the business sector – Zemin’s power base – is seen as pro-western, so by locking down the business sector any collaboration between the west and their business interests in Shanghai, is weakened. This could easily be justified on a national security basis which is likely to be the CCP internal justification for such extended lockdowns, Xi being the inheritor of the security service and military power bases.
