@tinfoilhattedcanuck: please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send you links I’ve been collecting on vaccine safety (it’s part of an expanded Tale of Two Narratives project I’m working, though I’ve been falling behind, sigh). Same for anyone else interested.
Thank you, @phoenixvoice, for summarizing the Snake Oil article above. I posted the link yesterday in the afternoon, but it seemed to take a very long time for it to show up in the feed. It falls right on the edge of what I think I can pass on to friends and relatives to see if I can pry them into discussion. The link, again:
The other article that I was thinking of pairing it up with is Gail Tverberg’s article on vaccine shortcomings. There’s something about Gail’s calm writing style that makes it attractive for this purpose, even while discussing topics of enormous import.
Here is a very detailed and well-informed overview laying out the case why the public has been sold a pack of lies about the vaccine:
(again, hat tip to market-ticker.org forum member)
The Ernst Wolff video is indeed a pretty plausible explanation for the big picture. He leaves out what I consider to be the other elephant in the room, energy depletion, but I wouldn’t quibble too much on it, given the strength of his argument on the financials alone. One thing that caught my eye was his mention of the “Young Global Leaders” program of the World Economic Forum, so I spent a few minutes searching. This is from Wikispooks; recognize any names?
In 1992, the WEF launched a new community, the Global Leaders for Tomorrow (GLTs), composed of 200 young leaders from business, politics, academia, the arts and the media, all of them under 43 years of age, and, as the WEF claims, “well established through their achievements and positions of influence”. This claim is simply not true, as the selection is extraordinary prescient, given that many of these people were totally unknown at the time. Angela Merkel, for example, was a nobody from the former East Germany incorporated into united Germany in 1991.
Among those nominated in the first year were many individuals (indicated below with their titles at that time) who would later assume key responsibilities or distinguish themselves further in their fields.
Martine Aubry, Minister of Labour, Employment and Vocational Training of France
José Maria Aznar, President, Partido Popular, Spain
José Manuel Durao Barroso, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal
Tony Blair MP, Shadow Cabinet Minister, United Kingdom
Gordon Brown, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, United Kingdom
Yuriko Koike, Senator, Japan New Party, Japan
Anne Lauvergeon, Deputy Secretary-General, Elysée Palace, France
Yo-Yo Ma, Musician
Angela Merkel, Federal Minister for Women and Youth of Germany
Nicholas Sarkozy, Assistant Secretary, RPR, France
Lawrence Summers, Vice-President and Chief Economist, World Bank, Washington DC
Louise Blouin Canadian editor
No doubt Macron, Trudeau, and Scott Morrison were in a subsequent cohort. By the way, there appears to be documentation from the WEF’s own web site for that inaugural class at the Wikispooks entry.
I also found a site that purports to have a more complete, but unverified, list of members here:
The list is so long that it is broken into pages; that link above is for surnames beginning with the letter B; you can just change the ‘b’ at the end of the URL to another letter to go to the pages for other letters of the alphabet. Macron is listed under M, but I don’t see Trudeau or Morrison or Jacinda Arden in the list. I haven’t had a chance to scroll through the other letters of the alphabet yet.
@deflationista: Facebook and the Gates Foundation occupy the #2 and #4 positions on the all-time donor list for the Texas Tribune. I’m sure that fact has no effect on editorial policy, and would never cause them to cherry pick facts and dates in support of The Narrative.
Well, it looks like Big Pharma won’t have to bring briefcases of cash to Congressional offices after all. Health and Human Services have apparently issued a fiat that the approved Comirnaty vaccine has the same immunity to legal liability as the EUA vaccine. Via Robert Malone’s twitter:
Regarding the "factcheckers" that have hit me about my assumption that the Pfizer EUA vaccine was covered by the CICP and BioNTech by the VICP.
As you can see at this link, it is actually worse for you and I that both vaccines are covered by the CICP.https://t.co/7e7LMxkdFB
— Robert W Malone, MD (@RWMaloneMD) August 31, 2021
The money shot in this instance is in the FAQ:
COVID-19 vaccines are covered countermeasures under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), not the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
For a category of vaccines to be covered by the VICP, the category of vaccines must be recommended for routine administration to children or pregnant women by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, subject to an excise tax by federal law, and added to the VICP by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. No COVID-19 vaccines currently meet this criteria.
Hat tip to Karl Denninger’s Market Ticker forum.
Anyone care to bet whether there is a legal immunity for the currently EUA vaccines buried somewhere in the belly of the infrastructure bill?
Here is a link to the firefighter video on Youtube, many supportive comments:
Dr. Christina Parks testifying in front of Michigan legislature regarding HB4471 on August 19th; HB4471 is a bill to prohibit employers from discriminating against an individual because the individual has not received or declines to receive certain vaccinations. It’s a concise exposition of the arguments against vaccination, worth sharing.
@laffin_boy: I also ratify your assessment, in the main. Yes, it is monstrous. Yes, it is far, far and away above most people’s rational ability to process, absent a long period of development and education. And that is what we, Raul, you are doing. We’re not aiming at the top, we’re trying to reach out to the sides, to find the chinks in the narrative and expose them.
Here is a link to a multi-part series on vaccine passports and their implications. The writer is affiliated with Catherine Austin Fitt’s Solari site, apparently.
This first article is focused on the legal landscape of vaccine passport legislation throughout the various US states. The successive articles lay out in detail the who, what, when, where, and why.
Just wanted to share an invitation… last night I got together with Madamski and TAE Summary and another friend here in Portland, Oregon for dinner and a beer. If you’re in the Portland area and want to be included in our next social get-together, send me an email at email@example.com.
Also, both TAE Summary and I continue to work on documenting the Tale of Two Narratives with links. If you want to contribute to that, or just want a read-only link to the work in progress, email me using the address above. Please include your user name if you comment here regularly.
On asymptomatic transmission:
Here is a paper on transmission of the virus in households that appears to state that asymptomatic transmission is rare (0.7%) compared to symptomatic transmission (18%). I suppose it is all how you define symptomatic.
The whole origin of the asymptomatic angle came, if I remember correctly from Christian Drosten in Germany, where there was an instance of a woman from China who was diagnosed supposedly without symptoms. However, it later came to light that the woman was taking some form of medication that lessened her symptoms, so the asymptomatic claim is now in question. But at this point it is firmly embedded into the narrative.
Regarding government chosen by lottery… wasn’t there some city in ancient Greece where the leaders were chosen by what was essentially a giant pachinko machine? I think there were black balls and white balls, and depending on which slot the minority balls dropped into the leaders were assigned. Or maybe I just dreamed that up.
If you were unable to watch the Mark Crispin Miller interview from a couple days ago (which YouTube annoyingly put behind a sign-in requirement), here is an alternative link. I can’t vouch for whether it is the full interview, but it looks legit.
@Phoenixvoice: did you remove the comment with the link to your ivermectin song? I wasn’t quick enough to listen last week, and when I search now in the vicinity of July 25th all I can find is John Day thanking you for the song. I wanted to include it in my radio show for the coming week, if you would be comfortable with that. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss. Thanks.
@Mr. House: that was Madeline Albright who said “I think it was worth it.” May she rot in hell.
If anyone can suggest a way to work on this collaboratively I would be glad to transfer what I have done to such a site.
TAE Summary: I so want to do this. You’ve made a great start on it. Let’s discuss off-line outside of the comment section. Here is a throw-away email that you can use to contact me: email@example.com.
PS: I would be a little worried about DropBox, or any other commercial entity, cutting off access if they became aware that there was ‘misinformation’ being shared. Keep a master copy outside of your Dropbox folder!
Bits of this an that, since I haven’t commented in a while. For those who have been running into the “prove you’re not a robot page”: I stopped clicking on the checkbox for “keep me signed in”, and since then I have had fewer problems (though it means I often have to sign in, especially if I’ve switched devices (iPad to laptop, for instance).
Standing in the shower yesterday morning I was struck by a thought. During the citizen investigation phase of 9/11 a Californian named Paul Thompson set up a web site that was a fantastic resource for digging into the event and its timeline. It was called cooperative research dot org (I spelled it out that way because if you go to that URL now you are redirected to a site that sells legal forms), and it was an open source collaboration and information sharing platform, initially focused on 9/11 and later expanded to the Iraq war. All of the content led back to on-line news sources as documentation, with a short quote that could be expanded, and you could view things in different skeins: you could, for instance, focus on American Airlines flight 11 and see a timeline of everything that was known about that flight minute by minute, as reported by various news organizations. Paul wrote a book about 9/11, moved to New Zealand, and then the web site withered and died. I’d like to think that if he had kept it going to the present time we’d be sharing information about the pandemic, vaccines, and the Great Reset. Hell, if Julian Assange wasn’t rotting in Belmarsh I’m sure that Wikileaks would be publishing narrative-busting content today. You can bet Mr. Global wouldn’t like that.
It struck me that TAE Summary’s alternative narrative list would make a good framework for gathering and classifying information, similar to cooperative research dot org. I had already started the process of archiving data and video and fitting it into that PANDA framework of about five statements, but I was finding it too constrictive. It’s slow going, creating PDF files, documenting their source URL, naming the files logically, and filing into logical folders. I have a part-time but intense high tech job. I’ve been trying to put in a bigger effort at The Farm, aka doomstead, with its 162 blueberry plants, unbuilt greenhouse and partially completed triple-redundant water well system, even though I worry that it will all be for naught because I’m in the deep blue state of Oregon and may have to ultimately flee. Is anyone else collecting and classifying articles and videos? I’ve heard that NextCloud has amazing collaboration tools these days.
My domestic partner, who gets her news exclusively from the New York Times and works in the state health department, is firmly on the opposite side of the narrative chasm. I’m sure you can guess which one. We have an uneasy truce these days not to discuss anything related to current events. One of her med school classmates from the late 80’s was in town this past weekend, and seeing as it was World Ivermectin Day I tried throwing out the gambit about “have you heard of ivermectin? Is anyone at your hospital using it for treatment?” Predictably, I ran into the party line: the studies are too small. The studies are too inconclusive. We were at lunch with his daughter, so I refrained from pushing it too hard, maybe 30 seconds about the 60 studies and 23,000 partipants and 74% overall reduction in harm. No dice. He’s actually moved out of seeing patients and is an administrator, so I am reminded of that old aphorism, “It’s hard to get a man to see something when his salary depends on him not seeing it.”
Reflecting on it later, I wondered if there might be a different way to approach it. As others have said, sticking to the mainstream narrative is like a religion for those who have a vested interest in the narrative; that vested interest can either be financial, or perhaps not wanting to consider the slightest chance that the person has made the wrong choices about what information to evaluate or substances to allow into their bodies. Maybe one approach is to try to expose it as a religion? Suppose I had started that lunch conversation like this:
“I’d like to come at a topic in a round-about way. I have no ideas about what religion you follow, or even if you reject religion. But I’m going start by saying that I’m a true believer in the Zoroastrian religion, one of the world’s oldest religions; many features of younger religions like Christianity and the Muslim faith incorporated the Zoroastrian precepts of monotheism, judgement after death, heaven, and hell. I’d like to invite you to consider accepting Ahura-Mazda, the Wise One, as your personal spiritual guide. Would you like to hear about the Threefold Path of Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds?”
Here I would pause, and look deeply into my guest’s eyes for a significant moment before saying, “Actually, I’m pulling your leg. But I want you to think back to a moment a few seconds ago when you were probably feeling deep discomfort at the thought that perhaps you might be drawn into a discussion where you might feel like you had to defend your religious views. I want you to recognize that involuntary reaction for my next topic, which will probably invoke a similar reaction. I’m hoping that if you can recognize the reaction, perhaps you can set it aside for just a minute or two, to hear what I think is good and important data. Are you ready?”
“There are prophylatic, early stage, and even successful late stage treatment options for Covid-19. Please set aside the dogma that you’ve probably been subjected to from hither-to trusted health authorities about this. Ivermectin works, and it’s been shoved off the table by powerful financial interests.” And then we’re off and running.
The CDC appears to be dropping the RT-PCR test in favor of other testing methods:
Is this so that they can track variants more closely?
Rand Paul failed to deliver the kill shot question, however: “What financial interests do you have in the vaccine?”
If they’re going to start censoring SMS messages it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump to blocking or hiding emails. Oh, wait, they’re already doing that:
How ivermectin works:
Interesting that now there is an editorial banner on that page saying that the paper is under further review.
@Oxymoron: as I recall you’re in Australia… does Australia have naturopathic physicians? I decided a long time ago to favor naturopathic physicians over allopathic (conventional) medicine, with a few exceptions. When I’ve had an ear infection my naturopathic physician has prescribed drops composed of garlic and mullein flower extract in olive oil applied into the ear canal. Cleared it right up.
OK, I’ll try again (file was too large, apparently). For you, Dr. D; at work everyone knew it was theater.
This one is for you, Dr. D:
I think I pulled this link out of a ZH comment last week, FWIW:
@oldandtired: many police departments have standardized on the Ruger Mini-14; it’s the functional equivalent of an assault rifle in that it is a semiautomatic rifle that accepts magazine clips. It just looks less like a scary assault rifle, and more like a traditional rifle with a wooden stock. And yes, it is chambered for .223/5.56 cartridges, same as an AR-15, so it has all the same penetration disadvantages that Dr. D outlined.
@Germ: dude, you’re killing it today! It’s like your channeling Whitney Webb! So many inconvenient coincidental connections. Image in post 76089 is gone, by the way.
@Polder Dweller: at my workplace of about 100 persons the vaccine defiance is at least 50% or higher. So there are pockets of resistance. In our case it is driven by a combination of factors: mostly conservative politically, people were acutely aware of the media bias against Trump and thus were quick to spot inconsistencies in the narrative and recognize the way in which the masking and vaccine policy were being used to political ends, not purely for health reasons (for a while a friend of mine was wearing a mask with a message printed on it: “This mask is as useless as my Governor”). We also have a sizable group of ethnic Russians, and they can smell a totalitarian roll-out a mile away – they’ve already lived under it, literally. And of course I’ve been quietly talking to people in small groups about what is coming, and as bits of that materialize it reinforces skepticism.
@ctbarnum: Karl has kind of split his site between the normal financial/cultural analyses on the main market-ticker.org front page, and the “nad” site of the site – I’m not sure what “nad” is short for, but you access it by clicking on the “Click for what the Media does not want Published” link under Main Navigation on the right. Look for the article under the “nad” section.
@Mr. House: any protection against a bio-weapon is going to be bio-weapon-specific, and they’re not exactly going to announce that they know in advance what the bio-weapon is going to be, are they? That would raise awkward questions.
Dr. D: enjoyed the video above, but clearly someone is having a bit of fun whenever the Helmut Stroker character is speaking. The graph he draws at the 5:40 minute mark is clearly a middle finger gesture, and the later reference to control, er surveillance, is comedic genius. My guess is that someone took vintage news footage and spliced in the spicy Stroker bits.
Regarding “Bright Green Lies,” James Howard Kunstler interviewed Derrick Jensen over at the KunstlerCast:
Good, thought-provoking interview.

I’ve had a general sense that deaths and serious cases have done an uptick since the vaccine rollout really got going, but this page seems to confirm it for a large number of nations:
Could be coincidental, but bears watching.
Also, at some point we’re going to have to throw off the framing they want to impose on people like myself: I’m not vaccine hesitant, I’m vaccine defiant. Our Governess in Oregon says she won’t lift restrictions until the state reaches 70% vaccination; my response to that isn’t printable on a family blog.
Here, let me fix that for you:
It has been previously proved that traumatic injury and chronic disease can cause premature immune system aging, but this research is the first to argue a
viral infectionbioweapon does the same.
