    John Day, Ilargi, Deflationista and those darned kids

    When I see an article or comment which is full of these words, it tells me two things: 1. the people who write them don’t respect their readers, and 2. they don’t respect themselves either. For those reasons I will normally skip such articles and comments.


    Just saw the WHO european rep on AlJazeera. He actually said that mandatory vaccination might be considered given that the vaccine uptake has leveled off. Bastard

    Empire of COVID is up.

    That African deaths graphic is really powerful, because you can explain it to anybody in 12 seconds while they look at it. That vaults the hurdle of not knowing anything about ivermectin except he-said-she-said.
    I am recommending it around. Non graphic excerpts, and you probably already saw a lot of it.

    This is the same thing a Malaysian study found in around March or April of 2020.

    Contaminant in over one million Moderna vaccine doses in Japan believed to be metal: NHK​ (1.6​3​ million)
    News of the contaminant could provide a fresh setback for Japan’s inoculation drive as it struggles to persuade many — particularly young people — to get vaccinated
    ​ ​NHK, in a report published late on Thursday, cited ministry sources as saying the particle reacted to magnets and was therefore suspected to be a metal. Moderna has described it as “particulate matter” that did not pose a safety or efficacy issue.​..
    ​ Another health ministry official said it would take “some time” to confirm how many shots from the contaminated batch had been administered in Japan. Kyodo News reported that at least 176,000 shots have been used based on its own tally of figures reported by municipalities.

    Moderna Vaccine Halted In Okinawa After Contamination From “Black Substances”
    ​ ​Three days after the Japanese Ministry of Health announced that they were pulling 1.6 million doses of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine due to contamination in some vials that ‘reacts to magnets’ and which led to the deaths of at least two men in their 30s who died after receiving their second dose of the Moderna vaccine, two prefectures have halted or limited its use after more contaminated vials were discovered, according to Japan’s public broadcaster, NHK, and The Korea Times, citing local reports.
    ​ ​The move comes as the Japanese health ministry said it’s investigating the August deaths of two men who received doses from tainted Moderna batches.

    The Flimsy Evidence Behind the CDC’s Push to Vaccinate Children​ Thanks Marc​ (How about no-shots?​)
    The agency overcounts Covid hospitalizations and deaths and won’t consider if one shot is sufficient.​ ​
    ​ ​My research team at Johns Hopkins worked with the nonprofit FAIR Health to analyze approximately 48,000 children under 18 diagnosed with Covid in health-insurance data from April to August 2020. Our report found a mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition such as leukemia.

    CHICAGO – A Chicago mother says a Cook County judge has taken away her parental rights after learning that she is not vaccinated against COVID-19. In what all parties agree is a very unusual and perhaps unprecedented step, a judge at Chicago’s Daley Center has stripped Rebecca Firlit of custody because she refuses to get a vaccination shot.

    ​Texas COVID cases topped out last week and are on the way down. Hospitalizations appear likely to peak this week or next.
    We should assume that deaths will rise for 3 more weeks.​

    The Afghanistan Rout and American Glasnost, Dmitri Orlov (Russian: He went through a collapse. He recognizes the progression of conditions and events.)
    ​ ​The US occupation of Afghanistan was rationalized based on an entire edifice of lies. At its foundation lay the lie of Nineleven. Above it towered the lie of fighting terrorism (while training and equipping the terrorists). Somewhere along the way the lie of aiding Afghanistan’s development into a vibrant, modern democracy with gender equality and other bells and whistles was added to this already stupendous structure (while the only actual development was that of the heroin trade)…​ ​
    ​ ​And if you wish to be stubborn and refuse to believe the official narrative, then it becomes quite plausible to think that Nineleven was a lavish American hoax: that the three skyscrapers were mined by some Americans, that the Pentagon was hit by an American cruise missile fired by some more Americans and that Osama bin Laden was a CIA agent who made grainy videos and scratchy audiotapes to inspire America’s pet terrorists (branded Al Qaeda, later rebranded ISIS/ISIL/Daesh/Islamic Caliphate). Osama was looking forward to a comfortable retirement somewhere in friendly Pakistan—a retirement that was cut short by an attack by a group of navy seals some time after his death from kidney failure…​ ​
    ​ ​The plan was to have Afghani heroin ooze out all over the surrounding Eurasia by camel caravans traversing huge uninhabitable deserts, and some of this indeed happened, but it quickly turned out that there was more money to be made by airlifting it out using US military transport planes flying to Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, which became the major heroin transshipment point. And so a lot of the heroin ended up in the US and in the EU, to a point where there are over 10 million opiate addicts in the US and deaths from opiate overdoses in the US alone amount to half a million a year and growing fast, with drug-related deaths the leading cause of death among the non-geriatrics. But it seems that these are just the opioid addicts who stand up to be counted, whereas opiate abuse is far more widespread and, judging from rapidly dropping overall life expectancy, quite severe…
    This hasty retreat signals, somewhere in the deep subconscious (because the realization is too painful) the end of the something-for-nothing economy on which the US has increasingly come to depend since Nixon took the US dollar off the gold standard 50 years ago. This disease may have been slow to develop, but it is chronic, incurable and invariably fatal. The 2021 US federal budget is $6.8 trillion and the budget deficit is $3 trillion, meaning that out of every dollar spent 44 cents are printed into existence. This is a hospice care-level dosage of financial morphine.
    At this point no amount of financial morphine will allow the American patient to arise from his bed, yank the IV from his arm and go and wreak even more havoc in the world, sowing fear and chaos. The fear and chaos are now right within the US itself. The $753.5 billion the US is spending on defense in 2021 is more than the next nine highest-spending countries spend combined, but it’s not enough to cause sufficient mayhem to scare the entire world into continuing to honor the US dollar in international trade or to invest in dollar-denominated assets; all that’s left is financial inertia and a bit of excitement around the world’s largest market bubble which the US federal reserve is desperately blowing.
    The Afghanistan Rout and American Glasnost’

    Pepe Escobar has more details about the Kabul Airport Bombing:
    ​ ​In parallel, it’s no secret among intel circles in Eurasia that ISIS-K has become disproportionally more powerful since 2020 because of a transportation ratline from Idlib, in Syria, to eastern Afghanistan, informally known in spook talk as Daesh Airlines.
    ​ ​Moscow and Tehran, even at very high diplomatic levels, have squarely blamed the U.S.-U.K. axis as the key facilitators. Even the BBC reported in late 2017 on hundreds of ISIS jihadis given safe passage out of Raqqa, and out of Syria, right in front of the Americans.
    ​T​he Kabul bombing took place after two very significant events.
    ​ ​The first one was Mujahid’s claim during an American NBC News interview earlier this week that there is “no proof” Osama bin Laden was behind 9/11 – an argument that I had already hinted was coming in this podcast the previous week.
    ​ ​This means the Taliban have already started a campaign to disconnect themselves from the “terrorist” label associated with 9/11. The next step may involve arguing that the execution of 9/11 was set up in Hamburg, the operational details coordinated from two apartments in New Jersey.
    Nothing to do with Afghans. And everything staying within the parameters of the official narrative – but that’s another immensely complicated story.​..
    ​ The other significant event tied to the Kabul bombing was that it took place only one day after yet another phone call between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.
    ​ ​The Kremlin stressed the pair’s “readiness to step up efforts to combat threats of terrorism and drug trafficking coming from the territory of Afghanistan”; the “importance of establishing peace”; and “preventing the spread of instability to adjacent regions.”
    ​ ​And that led to the clincher: They jointly committed to “make the most of the potential” of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which was founded 20 years ago as the “Shanghai Five”, even before 9/11, to fight “terrorism, separatism and extremism.”
    ​ ​T​​he SCO summit is next month in Dushanbe – when Iran, most certainly, will be admitted as a full member. The Kabul bombing offers the SCO the opportunity to forcefully step up.

    Marine commander fired for blasting ‘inept’ military leadership
    Willing to risk 17-year career to ‘demand accountability’ for Afghanistan
    ​ ​A sitting Marine battalion commander was fired Friday after he slammed the “ineptitude” of U.S. military leadership over the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal.
    Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller said in a video posted on YouTube after the deadly suicide attack Thursday that he was willing to risk his career and his pension — only three years from retirement — to “demand accountability” from top military brass.

    – The Narrative: They stole it from us, our precious!. Curse them! We hates them!
    – Schrodinger’s Vaccine: The virus is going to evolve to become antibody resistant, whether or not you deploy a vaccine, but because we have a vaccine, there’s a way to prevent the virus from spreading and evolving further.

    – Totalitarianism for fun and profit: Sick Semper Tyrranus
    – Good ideas do not require force
    – A useful syllogism: If you get vaccinated it’s because of Covid; If you die from the vaccine it’s because you got vaccinated; Therefore if you die from the vaccine it’s because of Covid
    – How to get your funeral paid for in Ottawa: Get vaccinated just before you die
    – Identifying metals in vaccines is hard
    – Get vaxxed or not and suffer the consequences
    – Only get the vaccine if it’s vile Comirnaty
    – Unfrtunately convincing material that the vaccines are safe and effective in the long term will only be available in the long term
    – Pfizerized cells lose neutralizing activity

    Here is a super tough question. It very probably pertains DIRECTLY to why the rulers and elites are apparently trying to kill off a bunch of us, so it’s NOT off-topic or meant to be sarcastic or snarky. It is asked in earnest :

    ” Why do you think that other people should agree with your solutions, and see the world the same as you do? Why not the other way around ?”


    Yes the name of the game these days is to shut down anything against the mainstream. Article on Ottawa paper describes a woman’s life-changing adverse response to vaccine. According to her, she was told by public health not to go to the media with her story. However she did anyway with support of another public health official who intervened.
    Another interesting article: The CBC is running basically a “laugh” piece against “crazy Albertans” for chasing horse paste off the shelves of the farm supply stores. Article commentary is so demeaning towards Albertans. We’ll see who gets the last laugh…


    So this is what we’ve come to….


    another try…

    D Benton Smith

    @chettt ref : ” So this is what we’ve come to. ”

    Yes. So far . But remember that there’s quite a bit more to come before we get to the destination.


    This was the first of over 20 deaths reported to the NZ VAERS system since Feb 2021 that has been publicly acknowledged.
    The cognitive dishwashing we are feed is that it is a very unlikely event and you are more likely to get peri / myocarditis from the vaccine.
    The latest report is upto 7 August, that preceeding week 5 deaths were reported, bringing total to 26. The same # as aged persons who have died from C19.
    The latest report states:
    17 of these deaths are unlikely related to the COVID-19 vaccine
    4 deaths could not be assessed due to insufficient information
    5 cases are still under investigation.
    This is prior to latest outbreak and massive ramp up of vaccinations.
    7 Aug there were 2,188,771 total doses given, as of 29 Aug 3,337,075 doses given, so maybe another 13 deaths yet to be reported on.

    C19 cases so far 3519. 0.07038% of pop.
    Deaths 26, 0.71% of cases. (0.00052% of pop.)
    Serious adverse effects 385 in 2.19MM doses. 0.0176%
    Death by vaccine 0.00119% (26 deaths by 2.19MM doses.)

    Research by the University of Otago, Wellington, has found that influenza kills about 500 New Zealanders each year, making it probably New Zealand’s biggest single infectious disease killer.,biggest%20single%20infectious%20disease%20killer.

    Old flu kills 20 times as many as the new flu, probably the same demographic.
    The weekly reports on flu in nz have not been updated since oct 2019.

    Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield emphasised the side-effect was rare and it was much more common with a Covid-19 infection.
    “The risk of myocarditis after the vaccine is much lower than the risk of myocarditis after being infected with Covid-19.” he said.

    “The safety profile of this vaccine is very very good.”

    An international expert in vaccines agreed the risks of serious harm from Covid-19 were far greater than any risk from Covid-19 vaccines.

    Otago University professor Peter McIntyre, who advises the World Health Organisation, said the condition is a rare side-effect.

    “Even though this is tragic and we all wished it hadn’t happened, that risk is very tiny compared to the risk we’re facing from Covid,” he said.

    Ill take a 0.00052% chance of contracting the virus and expiring over a 0.00119% chance of death by playing chicken with an 0.00119%, experimental gene therapy pushed on the populace by fear, coercion and obfuscation of the true risks.

    Twitter confirmed that it had permanently banned him for “repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules.”

    Wow, this guy was the New York Times science writer for 11 years.

    So VP, W did not declare an emergency 20 years ago, or is it moot?

    W continued/extended existing Emergency Powers, just like Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton did before him & Obama, Trump, Biden have done since…

    Only an honest, non-corrupt POTUS would end Emergency Powers, restoring Natural Law, but the demoRATs/GOPhers only thrive with that power, so unless the People demand it (which they won’t), it’ll never go away until the U$ofA collapses 😐

    mpsk: “if good people got into politics, politics might do some good.”

    i believe 4% of the population are sociopaths. those with bad teeth become criminals, those with good teeth become politicians.

    it matters not the type of governance, be it theocracy, democracy, sociocracy, kingocracy, communocracy, these people scramble very hard to be that guy.

    the scum rises to the top.

    scrap all elections. governments must be chosen by random selection from the populace.

    i think the pauquunaukit declared a state of emergency way back in 1616.

    what an evolution!

    we are now at the stage where the most important global forum is called “twitter”,

    and that “twitter”‘s primary function is to extract profits from your thoughts.

    go humans!


    TDK- I became a political animal in 4th grade. My future husband and I discussed the “telephone book” option on many occasions. I agree that it would pull a much higher quality bunch of politicians than we have now. We would have to get rid of the Senior Executive Service gang first, I think.

    I came to this conclusion 25+ years ago. The 17th amendment should be repealed, so that Senators are appointed/accountable to the states they represent + the house of reps should be populated the same way that jury pools are chosen, with restrictions on criminals & low IQ subhumans…

    I’ve seen that photo of Frau Farbissina (Mindy Sterling from the Austin Power franchise) in other memes and always got a kick out of it. The other day the topic of lying seemed to be a focal point for several of the comments on TAE so I grabbed a copy of the image off the internet and added the text. The riddle of getting the meme off of my PC and into a TAE comment has always eluded me until today. You know how it is, you make a couple of failed attempts, the moment passes, and then you forget about it until the next time comes around in which you want to post a self-created meme. After a little research on posting images online I decided to set up an account on and then upload the image from my PC to their site. Finally, success!

    In other news, I fell ill last week shortly after returning from NY. What I thought was a bad case of jet lag turned into a nasty cold. I started on the ivermectin and other protocol items on the FLCCC list, but each day my symptoms grew worse. I finally went in for a Covid test (15 min. antigen) at the local urgent care clinic on Saturday because I had had close contact with a couple friends who then became nervous when they heard I had gotten sick. When the test came back negative, I had mixed feelings. Part of me was hoping that this was my chance to put the whole Covid drama behind me, but it wasn’t meant to be. Just a nasty summer cold made possible by a combination of pet allergies and a course of prednisone for a bad back that knocked down my immune system. Today is the first day where I can see my health has turned the corner. That’s an entire week I’m glad to see in the rearview mirror.


    More fun with anecdotes!

    My sister’s in-laws — four families — took a road trip together and stayed in an airbnb for about a week. Just before the start of their journey, one male adult had just been diagnosed with covid — he had symptoms and positive PCR test. My sister kindly shared with me the results.

    Family 1
    2 adults, 4 minors
    Covid Stats: no prior covid infections, no covid vaccinations
    Results: 1 adult from this family was diagnosed (symptoms + PCR) just before the outset of the trip.
    All came down with covid symptoms. (No further PCR.)

    Famly 2
    8 adults
    Covid Stats: no prior covid infections, all fully vaccinated against covid.
    Results: All came down with covid symptoms.

    Family 3
    3 adults, 4 minors
    Covid Stats: Covid swept through this family in October 2020, no vaccinations against covid
    Results: 2 adults and 4 minors came down with covid symptoms. One adult (age 18) who, ironically enough, was the first infected back in October 2020, did not develop symptoms.

    Family 4
    3 adults, 4 minors
    Covid Stats: Covid swept through this family in November 2020, adults fully vaccinated against covid, children’s vaccination status unknown
    Results: All came down with covid symptoms.

    In general, with the exception of the 18 year old who had a confirmed case of covid in Oct 2020, the adults’ symptoms were much worse than the kids symptoms.


    The results are a little mind-boggling.


    Paraphrasing Blinken
    Don’t worry! Money is still going to keep flowing.


    Phoenix Voice – interesting family stats – pretty inexplicable.
    A couple thoughts:
    – was this the delta variant that neither the vaccine nor natural immunity would be completely effective against?
    – duration of immunity (via vaccine or natural) may be limited. It has been suggested that the immune system is like a muscle that requires constant exercise. Lockdowns create unfit immune systems.


    Hey Dr D Rich!
    I have seen Planck’s name in four disparate occasions these past three days. What’s up?

    John Day

    @Phoenix Voice, The most straightforward explanation would be a combination of COVID and “nasty summer cold” got into the group.
    I can’t tell the difference between them in clinic these days without a test, but the people who already had COVID all have negative tests so far.
    The only COVID repeats I have had have been on immunosuppressive drugs.
    Ivermectin helped both times on one of them.


    Without truth and the free discussion of the facts, the world becomes inexplicable. Together with the cult beliefs that there is no such thing as society and money is the sole determinate of merit; utter incompetence is built in. If it is all lies, nothing works. The forever wars are unwinnable. At least one occupation has ended after 20 years.

    It is clear now that the mRNA vaccines will not eradicate coronavirus or even mitigate the illness plus they are not “safe”. Blood clotting and heart inflammation are acknowledged side effects. Efficacy declines. Boosters are needed. Transmission is not prevented and may even increase viral load in vaccinated breakthrough COVID patients. Yet, the corporate state silences anyone who points this out in public.

    The graph above of the daily new COVID cases indicates that blaming the unvaccinated for the spike of the delta variant is pure propaganda. The spikes could be due to the mRNA vaccines themselves. The highly vaccinated nations Israel, UK (and also Iceland) and the moderately vaccinated USA have spikes in COVID cases yet relatively unvaccinated India where the delta variant originated; cases spiked, declined and have plateaued. This plateau could be due to some states in India not using Ivermectin.

    These are just observations. The CDC testing/reporting debacle, tribalism and corporate “profit over lives” reign in the USA makes determining the truth almost impossible. Americans are on their own with a dysfunctional US government.

    The US Gulf Coast is close to being uninhabitable unless you have enough money to build a hurricane proof house with supplies and generators that will be off the grid for months. The rest will move out and those left to extract resources will revert to third world rebuildable shacks. This is also true for those living in or near Western North American forests due to wildfires and toxic air.

    And the obesity stats…thise are telling as well. Western civilization thinks so highly of itself…yet by many metrics it is a very diseased civilization.
