Same Struggles Tomorrow

 Nourished by Information,

Censorship Kills,  Marilyn Singleton MD
​  ​For months we’ve heard that COVID is not like the flu. It is a different animal. It may leave the infected person with long term aftereffects. Given the potential problems, the FDA, CDC, NIH, HHS and the alphabet health agencies should be advocating for early pharmacological treatment and prevention. Instead, we are told to wash our hands, wear masks—which may or may not help—and to stay away from one another. Indeed, as California’s Health and Human Services Secretary admitted, the state’s order banning outdoor dining and closing playgrounds was “not a comment on the relative safety” of the activity but a tactic for keeping people at home.
​  ​Stay home — although 66 percent of new coronavirus hospitalizations in New York were in people who had not routinely left their homes. Stay inside — although there are studies echoing observations during the 1918 flu pandemic finding that people who went outside had better outcomes. A recent Spanish study​ ​showed that 80 percent of patients with COVID had low levels of vitamin D. Another study found that people with adequate vitamin D levels had a 51 percent lower risk of dying from COVID. People at risk for vitamin D deficiency include those who have dark skin, are elderly or overweight, or stay indoors. Interestingly, these groups are particularly hit hard by COVID.
​  ​Simply put, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Any risk of taking proper doses of vitamins and minerals is dwarfed by the risks associated with COVID. Useful vitamins and minerals include zinc (inhibits viral replication), vitamin D3 and vitamin C, and quercetin (to help drive zinc into the cells). Additionally, melatonin, a hormone found naturally in the body that regulates our sleep cycle, also has significant anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and mitochondrial protective effects.

​Huh, Lockdowns are designed to last "forever" ? , Brandon Smith
​  ​Gotta keep that fear train chugging forward on the track to the “Great Reset”, right?
For the people that actually believe that the covid crisis will end after mass vaccinations, I’m sorry to say, but you have been duped. Every single element of the establishment response and every public statement they make indicates that they plan to violate your civil liberties for a long time to come. Those promises of relief right around the corner? All lies. The claim that if you go along to get along everything will go back to normal? It’s a con. It is hollow rhetoric designed to make you shut up and submit to medical tyranny for just long enough that it becomes irreversible.
​  ​I suspect they are hoping they can condition the public over the next few years to simply adapt to the controls until we forget what life was like before the pandemic and the reset. It seems, however, that the globalist reset plan is not going very well.

​Quick, get your first shot of experimental vaccine!
Russia is developing world’s first Covid-19 antidote, preclinical studies show drug effectiveness of more than 99%

Here is yet another compilation of COVID treatment options, with links to reference articles, endorsed by a very long list of treating physicians:

John Michael Greer has a list of unknowables for 2021, not predictions, this time:
​  ​The first one that comes to mind is the gaggle of vaccines against the Covid-19 coronavirus now being injected into long lines of recipients in countries around the world. The corporate media here in the US, at least, has been insisting at the top of its electronic lungs that “the vaccine” (there are of course several of them) is safe and effective. The stark truth is that nobody knows.  It takes one to two years of repeated tests and long-term assessments to figure out if a vaccine is safe and effective, and the Pfizer vaccine—the first one approved in the US and Britain—got a total of eight weeks of hurried testing before it was approved for sale. It’s quite common for problems with pharmaceuticals—even horrific problems—to take months or years to surface, and the Pfizer and Moderna products belong to a type of vaccine—mRNA vaccines—that have never before been successfully used on human subjects, so no one anywhere knows what will happen when millions of people take them.
​  ​One thing that interests me is the shrill tone of the claims being made by the media about the supposed safety and efficacy of the vaccines. For some years now, the comfortable classes in today’s America have lost track of the fact that control over the public narrative does not equal control over the facts underlying the narrative.

​More excellent thoughtfulness. Samo Burja assesses how intellectual authority works​:
​  ​One might think professionalization means a strict improvement in the epistemic foundations of a field. This isn’t the case. Rather, professionalization is a way to reduce variance. Professionalization is essentially the creation of set procedures, norms, and social roles to govern a given area of knowledge, and while this eliminates unserious crackpottery, it also crowds out the “unorthodox” and often stochastic experimentation employed by all exceptional live players as they new drive fields forward—in short, reducing variants cuts off both tails of the skills distribution. While professionalization does eliminate some malpractice, for pre-paradigmatic fields it can be harmful, since researchers must pursue hypotheses that can’t be justified to bureaucrats. If the hypothesis could be justified to bureaucrats the field would already be mature. A premature professionalization closes many doors of inquiry.

​We know why Seth Rich was murdered on the way home from a DNC office party. (Hi Hillary!)
The National Security Agency (NSA) is reportedly holding records on Seth Rich that are at the highest level of classification.  
What on earth could cause these records to be so highly classified?
  The National Security Agency is hiding records about murdered Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich, according to one of my sources, who informed me yesterday that the records are classified as a special access program (the highest level of classification) because they include intercepted communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

This is all set. Will they pull-the-trigger?

  Trump campaign senior advisor Jason Miller during an interview on Newsmax TV expressed the hope that evidence pertaining to election-related issues will be shared directly with the American people next week.
  If a minimum of one member of each congressional chamber objects to the electoral vote returns of a state during a joint session of Congress presided over by the vice president on Jan. 6, each chamber will separately debate for up to two hours and then vote on the objection,

​  ​Objections are filed in writing and must have support from at least one member of each chamber. If they do, they trigger a two-hour debate and a vote by the House of Representatives and the Senate. A simple majority in each chamber is required to uphold the challenge.
​  ​Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) told The Epoch Times that the group plans to file objections against the votes from six states, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada. They’re mulling an objection to votes from New Mexico.
​  ​Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) was the first to announce plans to file an objection.
“In my judgment, based on what I have seen so far and my own personal experience with voter fraud and election theft by Democrats, in my judgment, if you only could count lawfully cast votes by American citizens, Donald Trump won the Electoral College,”

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said Wednesday he will raise objections next week when Congress meets to affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory​.

​There are roles to play in a game, but there are some things you never do, like delay the military pork delivery.

Charles Hugh Smith (who also spotted the economic impact of COVID in January) makes a PREDICTION:
The Top 10%'s Bubble Is About to Bur​st​
​  ​When the top 10%'s bubble pops in 2021, the loss of illusions/delusions of security and wealth will be shattering to all those who believed artifice and illusory "wealth" were real.
​  ​A great many people are living in bubbles that are about to pop. The largest bubble is the one inhabited by people who complacently believe in time travel, i.e. that the world of 2019 is about to replace the nightmare of 2020 and we can all go back to our carefree debt-funded consumption frenzy and illusions of ever-greater wealth forever and ever.
​  ​The greater one's sense of security, the more durable the bubble. Those in America's top 10% who have reaped virtually all the gains in income and wealth of the past 20 years live in a bubble that they view as unbreakable: no matter what problems arise, their personal income and wealth is secured by the government, central bank, etc.​..
When the top 10%'s bubble pops in 2021, the loss of illusions/delusions of security and wealth will be shattering to all those who believed artifice and illusory "wealth" were real. What's real is the tide of financialization and globalization reversed over a year ago. The tide is now running out, but few loading their "wealth" into lifeboats have noticed--yet.

Still Swimming In COVID

 Waving Hello,

  We are now into the "second wave" of COVID. 
In (sunny) Texas hospitalized cases have just exceeded their previous mid July peak. 
There is controversy about the term "second wave". It may mean different things to different people. 
  Why would there be an interruption in the spread of contagious illness through a population? 
There are masks and social distancing, which make it somewhat harder for virus to jump from host to host.
There are also host-resistance factors. 
Being susceptible to a bad outcome, if infected, is different from being more or less susceptible to initial infection.
We have repeatedly been shown that adequate levels of vitamin-D in a person reduce risk of infection when exposed (nasopharyngeal innate-immunity is supported.) and we have repeatedly seen that the lowest vitamin-D levels are closely correlated with worst hospital outcomes. 
Giving high-dose vitamin-D in a Spanish study was a very effective treatment intervention for hospitalized patients.
  Vitamin-D levels mostly come from sunshine entering the skin surface and creating active vitamin D. Darker skin , weaker sun, and less skin exposure to the sun all decrease vitamin-D levels. Vitamin-D builds and falls slowly in the body, over months, so the peak levels lag peak sun by about 3 months. Also, people may avoid August sun, and go back out in September. The curves will be different in Hawaii and New York.
  It is clear that dark skinned people in northern climes get hit the hardest, but that dark skinned people in Africa are faring tremendously better.
I have not seen a published comparison of vitamin-D levels by population, area and season, but they can be reasoned out.
  Do support your local immune system this winter, please! Vitamin-D 5000 units per day is a good dose for adults, and can be doubled for the first month or 2 to get blood levels up into the mid normal range.

Jeremy in the UK sent this: 
Hospital Crisis Results From Lack of At-Home Treatment for COVID-19

​Here is an August interview with Professor Thomas Borody, regarding ivermectin, zinc, doxycycline treatment for COVID-19, which is curative.
Professor Borody developed the cure for peptic ulcer disease, caused by H. pylori infection. People stopped dying of bleeding ulcers, but adoption was slow, since ordinary generic medicines could be used. There was no fortune to be made.

Ziverdo costs $2 in India. It's zinc, ivermectin and doxycycline at fixed doses. People seem to have a very hard time getting it to Europe or the US when seeking to order it online.

Here is the COVID-19 Essentials site that Jeremy sent.Treating physicians contribute to and update this site as a public service.

Here is Dr Paul Marik's treatment protocol. Pages 9-11 are most relevant to outpatients, but the prophylaxis section following next is also useful. 
The first few pages give a good description of what pathologic processes are occurring at what stages of infection, and what interventions are appropriate at each stage. This is the best overall reference, and includes many, many optional additions for consideration.

Major Covid Vaccine Glitch Emerges: Most Europeans, Including Hospital Staff, Refuse To Take It​  (Minimal testing takes 4 years)

​  Polyethylene Glycol allergic reactions are not mysterious. It is known to cause hypersensitivity​. There were warnings. 
Most people are not pre-sensitized to polyethylene glycol because it has never been given as a shot, for good reason. 
This is a major concern for the SECOND VACCINATION SHOT, to which millions of people could have been sensitized by the first shot. Polyethylene glycol is essential to the design of the messenger RNA vaccines by Pfizer and Moderna. They do not work without it. It helps get the messenger RNA into the human cells, similarly to how an RNA virus infects them, but with the objective that the cells produce antigenic fragments, not active virus. The immune system then learns to attack the antigenic fragments (good). The immune system might develop hypersensitivity to polyethylene glycol (bad), or start attacking healthy parts of the body, which autoimmunity is known to occur after COVID-19 in some people, already (also bad).
Scientists Scramble To Identify Culprit Behind Covid Vaccine Allergic Reactions

​  There is pretty much no influenza circulating in the US so far this season. We have not had a positive at my clinic. California has a very few. We tested a lot at first, but have backed down lately. I don't think the tests are different. We use the same kits as in the spring.​
The masking and social distancing measures which society is following for COVID seem to be almost a brick wall for the less transmissible influenza.

Dr. Luc Montagnier discovered that HTLV-3 causes AIDS and got a Nobel Prize in 2008. This story is from April, reposted. Thanks Charles.
​  ​Referring to a study published at the Kusama School of Biology in New Dehli on January 31st, Montagnier (the 2008 Nobel Prize winner for his 1983 discovery of the HIV virus) made the point that the specific occurrence of HIV RNA viral segments spliced surgically within the COVID-19 genome could not have originated naturally and he described it in the following words:
​  ​“We have carefully analyzed the description of the genome of this RNA virus. We weren’t the first, a group of Indian researchers tried to publish a study showing that the complete genome of this virus that has within the sequences of another virus: that of HIV.”
​  ​While the Indian team was induced to retract their publication under immense pressure from the mainstream medical establishment (which never bothered to seriously refute the content of the study’s research but rather used the “random-mutation-makes-anything-possible” argument), Montagnier stated “scientific truth always emerges”.​..

Matthew Ehret also wrote this​ in April​ about American bioweapons work, and the need to move it outside the US , due to repeated breaches at Ft Detrick. One place ​research​ went was Wuhan, but Ft Detrick did have a breach in May or June 2019, and was shut down until November after a lot of people in a retirement community died of a mysterious viral illness.​ 
There are always ways to explain accidents to benefit one's objectives, when accidents happen.​

  ​Resource limits/costs have to be dealt with by either restructuring the economic growth paradigm, or by destroying competing growing economies, like Syria, Iran, Venezuela, Libya and Iraq​. That only works for a while. Now demand destruction, to allow some economy to keep growing, has to get bigger, or the financial/economic paradigm must be changed drastically, to one that accommodates a steady state or contracting system of production, not just growth. Gail Tverberg has that same story again, and it is why these drastic measures must be taken lately. (We are being forced to comply, not for our health, but because the owners can't do anything else, due to their own power struggles.)

Eleni sends this article about the destruction of Lebanon. Military now uses financial and economic weapons preferentially.
​  ​If the destruction of five states in the Greater Middle East over the past two decades has required deadly wars, the destruction of Lebanon was carried out by the Lebanese themselves, without them realizing it. The Resistance has helplessly seen the country collapse. It is indeed possible to win a war without having to fight it.

​Thanks for this, too, Eleni. Paul Craig Roberts:​
​​  The Nashville bombing raises questions about the Oklahoma City bombing.  In 1995 the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was blown up.  Allegedly, the building was destroyed by a fertilizer bomb in a Ryder rental truck parked on the street.  The Murrah building had massive reinforced concrete columns, some being  3 feet thick if memory serves. The front third of the building was destroyed with columns turned to dust.
  The guilty parties were allegedly Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.  According to reports, the blast killed 168 people, injured 680 others, and destroyed or damaged 324 buildings within a 16-block radius along with 86 cars and caused $652 million of damage in 1995 dollars.
  At the time US Air Force General Partin, who had high level responsibilities for ordinance and weapons development, distributed an expert report to 75 members of the House and Senate.  The report proved that the Murrah building blew up from the inside out.

What Jesus Would Do

 In God's Image,

Pepe Escobar has The Political Jesus, for Christmas, worthy of consideration:
  Jerusalem was buzzing with people getting together for Passover. And last but not least, Roman governor Pontius Pilate and his troops were also in town, freshly arrived from Caesarea – the Roman HQ in the province – and obsessed with maintaining order.
  Enter Caiaphas, the high priest: a canny, vastly experienced political operator, who managed for years to get the support of the Jews while placating his Roman overlords.
  Now imagine the scene – worthy of a Scorsese epic: an outsider, itinerant preacher from Galilee, arriving in the mean streets with his posse, all speaking in weird accents, with the crowds shouting he may be the Messiah.
  And then, the ultimate set piece: he enters the Temple, by himself, and overthrows the tables of the moneylenders. 
What did he really want?
That’s Political Jesus 1 and 2.
1. To graphically stress the end of the old order – Temple included – and the coming of the “new kingdom”.
2. To express – politically – the growing popular revolt against the ruling elite.
And by a simple twist of fate, that’s when he sealed his destiny.
  Blowback was instantaneous. The Jewish priests had to be placated. They feared Roman retaliation. And then Caiaphas saw his opening, telling them – according to the Gospel by John – “it is better for one man to die for the people”.
  And that’s how Jesus the Outsider was used as only a pawn in their game to maintain order in Jerusalem.
He was now free to enter History as a larger than life Martyr, Savior, and Myth.

Michael Hudson again:
The Ten Commandments were about debt

​ ​  People tend to think of the Commandment ‘do not covet your neighbour’s wife’ in purely sexual terms but actually, the economist says it refers specifically to creditors who would force the wives and daughters of debtors into sex slavery as collateral for unpaid debt.
“This goes all the way back to Sumer in the third millennium,” he said.
​  ​Similarly, the Commandment ‘thou shalt not steal’ refers to usury and exploitation by threat for debts owing.

The economist says Jesus was crucified for his views on debt. Crucifixion being a punishment reserved especially for political dissidents.
​  ​”To understand the crucifixion of Jesus is to understand it was his punishment for his economic views,” says Professor Hudson. “He was a threat to the creditors.”
​  Jesus Christ was a socialist activist for the continuity of regular debt jubilees that were considered essential to the wellbeing of ancient economies.

​This is pretty bizarre. Hang in there until the parts about Lady Lynn Rothschild, Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. ​
There is probably enough to hold your attention from there.

​Adjusting the Narrative​

Merry Christmas 2020, Vitamin D, and a Productive 2021

 Friends and Family,

   Jenny and I are fortunate to have had a pretty normal and busy year, despite all of the changes this year.  We have been well, and Jenny's big spinal surgery in July went well.  Jenny is fully recovered and working daily at her school.

  Holly (not Tommy), Amber, and Amber's husband, Philip all had COVID. They all took antivirals, and they are all doing well.  We have all been taking 5000 units per day of vitamin-D this year. We hope that you also have, and still are.

  Your own immune system is the miracle drug for this weird virus. Low vitamin-D weakens your immune system.  Low and extremely low vitamin-D levels are the norm in our modern world, since people live and travel "indoors", and do not get hours of daily sun on their skins.  There is good medical analysis that up to 87% of COVID deaths are directly linked to low vitamin-D.

  People have a trained reflex; "don't take too much!"  I'll tell you my experience and also a recent study that looked at getting vitamin-D levels up to normal quickly.  The observational study used 60,000 units of vitamin D3 per day for 2-3 weeks.  More than half of the participants got a mid-normal blood level by 2 weeks, but about a quarter of them still had a blood level below the target range of 50 or more, at the end of 3 weeks.  Nobody had a higher than normal level. Normal is 30-100, and the target range here was 50-100.

  60,000 Units per day is a big number, but it is 1.25 mg of vitamin-D, which sounds much smaller.

My experience is that people don't absorb all of a big dose, and absorb multiple smaller doses better.

People who take two pills of 5000 units per day (the largest dose our stores here sell) will usually get up into the low normal range in 2-3 months, but not always. It is ok to catch up missed doses when you remember.  

  I have given away over $500 of vitamin-D 5000 units this year. Another 200 bottles of 100 pills should come in today or tomorrow, for $670. It will also be given to patients, coworkers, friends, neighbors and family. I gave a bottle to a beggar I see on my bike ride, instead of the usual dollar bill, and a school crossing guard who waves at me. I explained the benefits and urged them to take it daily. They said they were on Friday when I saw them again.  Jenny got $120 worth of Vitamin D at Costco and gave it to all of her coworkers when they had an outbreak at school last month. I treated three of her coworkers (including a husband with cancer) without seeing them in clinic.

  Ivermectin is the core antiviral treatment that works very well at all stages of COVID, including prevention.

  Vitamin-D should be taken as a baseline, and it should be added if someone who gets sick is not already taking it.  

  Zinc has long been known to disrupt corona viral reproduction.

  Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance website keeps up with this, as do I at, though I keep up with a lot of other things, too.  We have entered a time of rapid and disorienting societal transformation

  It is important, in my professional opinion, not to expose yourself to the risks of vaccines, which have not been through extended testing.

  Coronavirus vaccines have a specific problem called "Pathogenic Priming", which means that when the vaccine works to produce antibodies, it also works to prime a fatal response for the host animal or person, when exposed to the coronavirus. This became apparent after SARS in the early 2000s. They tried repeatedly to make coronavirus vaccines, but too many lab animals always died. They never developed any coronavirus vaccine safe enough for human trials.

There are no animal trials this time, for any of the COVID-19 vaccines.  

  Wait to see how this works out for people. Take 5000 units per day of vitamin D.

Share the I-Mask-Plus treatment protocol from the COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance with your doctor.

Print it up and take it with you or mail it.

Ivermectin, zinc and doxycycline treatment packs are being sold in India, where they are using a LOT of them, to good effect.  

Some of you who live nearby have gotten an orange tree seedling we grew and some Vitamin-D for Christmas.

Love and Best Wishes,

John and Jenny Day

More Augury

 Choosing to Decide,

  Pepe Escobar interviews an astrologer, which you might already be tired of, but astrology is a pretty open format to discuss grand sweeps of history with a little calm abstraction, and that's a good thing right now. This interview gets better towards the end.

  Perverse levels of technological control of society are a serious concern as Pluto, aka Hades, lord of the underworld, will also transit in technological and futuristic Aquarius from 2023/24 on, up until 2043/44 – times of intense social transformation, when technological advancements will blow our minds and the very conception of science will change considerably, but with serious risks of trans-human and post-human madness.
  We cannot disregard our organicity. We cannot disregard our subjectivity, either. Pluto is about transformation or domination – in other words, quoting a recent article of yours: “Here’s our future: hackers or slaves.”
  We’ve got to go hacking not only in the objective sense – which surely becomes more and more a desirable skill – but in the subjective sense as well, finding lines of flight and keeping Eros alive, the life force in us vivid.

Negotiating Christmas

 Club Non-Members,

Sister Caitlin in Oz:
  Americans keep expecting a system that’s not built to serve their interests to serve their interests:
 Progressives look to congress for economic justice.
Trumpers think the judicial system will overturn the election.
Liberals thought Mueller would arrest the entire Trump camp.
 What these all have in common is a belief that the system can be used to radically change the system, and it just can’t. The system is built by the powerful to maintain power structures which serve the powerful. That’s it. It’s not going to suddenly start serving your interests.
 This is why the main US factions keep being proven wrong about their predictions of apocalyptic revelations which will take out the other party: they’re taking it as a given that there’s some part of the system which works in opposition to the other parts on behalf of justice. Trump is obviously corrupt, so Democrats assumed an investigation would turn up corruption and he’d be punished for it, erroneously assuming that the judicial system might turn against the president. Same with the Trumpers who think the election results will be overturned.
 And that’s just not what the system is for. Even relatively awake people often cling to the delusion that there exists some part of their federal governmental structure which is there to serve them, when really its primary function is to protect the powerful from them.

Pork For Christmas, Ilargi at The Automatic Earth:
​  The ​Americans the stimulus is supposed to be for, have no seat at the table. Only the people they voted for do, and among those, only the ones who’ve been there long enough, 30-40 years, and who have amassed huge multi-million dollar fortunes while on 200-300K salaries. Newly elected reps and senators have no say. They may gain a say, but only if they comply with what the lobbyists tell them to do.
​ If 200 million Americans finally get a $600 check, sometime in spring 2021(?!), that would cost $120 billion. If 300 million do, $180 billion. The pork stimulus package is for $900 billion. And they want you to believe this is meant to help the people, and most of the people believe that. And that works too, because of the way the media, very much complicit in the charade, “report” the entire thing.
​  ​But c’mon man! Every American could get a $600 check every month for the next half year if the corporate subsidies and all sorts of other pork were left out of bills like this. But that’s not how Washington operates. Washington is not about people, it’s about money.

​Huh?  ​President Trump appeared to threaten to veto the COVID-19 stimulus package that Congress passed almost 24 hours earlier, telling lawmakers to boost checks for Americans to $2,000 as well as "get rid of wasteful and unnecessary items" in the spending bill.

​  ​Trump has been talking about bigger checks for a long time. Was this a bluff that whole time? Amy Klobuchar tries her own private angle, and calls raising the stimulus to $2,000 per person “an attack on every American”. What? Is that also a bluff? At the end of the day, Trump and the Squad both want the same thing. All the rest are stuck in the middle.
​  ​And AOC tries to save the day, and her face, by saying the Squad had the proposals for $2,000 checks already written up.

Pelosi And Schumer Agree To Trump's Demand For $2,000 Stimulus Checks​ (so another $129 billion or so. No cutting pork allowed.)

Jupiter Saturn Conjunction Solstice

 Star Crossed,

  John Michael Greer opened the astrological bidding with this:
Executive Summary:
The most relentlessly malefic mundane chart I have ever studied greets the incoming administration with a barrage of hostile aspects almost entirely unrelieved by favorable indications. The government can expect to be hammered by one crisis after another, with economic troubles, popular protests, and outbreaks of violence over the top of a spreading collapse of public support in the status quo that puts the entire structure of American governance in question. Whoever is inaugurated early next year will face a disastrous situation, and whoever becomes the next president thereafter is going to have a gargantuan mess to clean up.​..
  ​ It will be modified, of course, by the quarterly ingress charts, the influence of eclipses, and of course the Grand Mutation between Jupiter and Saturn, which announces the beginning of a new era in world history a month before the inauguration.
{​Heelllooo Aquarius!​}

​Jim Kunstler gives his read:
​  ​The trouble is, Mr. Trump actually does have the evidence, and he intends to use it after four years of being remorselessly fucked around by his antagonists. So, the nation is at the point in this long, winding drama that has become a fight to the death and there will be no rituals of torch-passing just to keep up appearances that everything is functioning normally. Mr. Trump has the evidence of widespread, yes widespread, ballot fraud. He is the president, after all, and he has all the information. As he’s said more than once, he’s caught them all. And they know it.
​  ​Of course, the CIA and the FBI, those pillars of the Intel Community, are still trying to withhold what they can, but the president is not having it. He’s taking away the CIA’s most precious asset: its resources for making mischief on-the-ground — its airplane fleet and its armaments, handing them over to the Pentagon — reducing the CIA to the simple task of analyzing signals from the world scene. And so, the CIA has been refusing to cooperate with the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, as a last gasp to preserve its long-running illicit prerogatives. That will eventually trigger the president’s invocation of the 2018 Executive order 13848, allowing, at long last, the arrest and prosecution of many desperate characters who tried to run away with the US Government.
​  ​But probably not before the last legal avenues have been traveled: Sidney Powell’s case against the Dominion vote system in the Supreme Court, a long-shot like all the other cases that the court is loath to touch; and the business of the alternate electoral college slates to be hashed out in the House on January 6, Vice-President Mike Pence, presiding. Democrats and their coastal elite supporters are not going to like it. If they call out their Antifa troops, those feckless weenies with their hoisted cell phones and stupid umbrellas are going to be crushed this time, not indulged like three-year-olds.
​  ​The wild-card all of a sudden is what the nation will also do about the foreign actors reportedly messing around with the government’s most critical computer systems. China? Iran? Russia?

​Tessa (fights robots) on ​Conformism (She ain't one)
​  ​I know conformism! As a kid in Moscow, I was an aspiring conformist. I was in need of love, and I was trying to earn it with obeying the rules and pleasing the adults. It was a lonely time. The adults were broken—but they had the power. Praise for performance was the only currency of love I knew. Then, as a teenager, I rebelled against everything—which felt amazing—but it seems like my rebellion was making those around me sad. Out of guilt and fear, I tried obedience again, so as not to be an a**hole. But then life showed me the face of the machine and put me through a very cruel experience that cleared up my head. After that, I couldn’t become compliant even if I wanted to, my thinking just didn’t bend that way.
​  ​So my theory is that when aspiring conformists—who look for love in any form—grow up without seeing the face of the machine, they remain compliant. The establishment rewards the act of betraying one’s inner child—and because it promotes self-betrayal through formal education, academics can become messenger viruses of spiritual defeat and blinding pride.
​  ​After all, an abstract thinker is a “leader.” And a peasant is, well, a peasant.
So this story is my frustrated inner peasant’s dive into what seems to be the collective psyche of a proud intellectual.

Accomplished pharma prof thrown in psych hospital after questioning official COVID narrative
Early on December 10, Jean-Bernard Fourtillan was taken from his home by a team of French law enforcement officers and forcibly placed in solitary confinement at the psychiatric hospital of Uz├Ęs.

​ Successful viral mutations are rewarded with increased viral replication and spread. 
Success typically hinges upon spreading more effectively and keeping your hosts in circulation, not killing them out of circulation. 
Jumping hosts more readily is rewarded, but so is not making people so sick that they lie alone in bed.
A new variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, is thought to be driving increased transmission of the disease in parts of the UK.

I agree with this august medical scholar: Thanks Jeremy.
​  ​Dr. Tetsuo Nakayama, a project professor at Kitasato Institute for Life Sciences and director of the Japanese Society of Clinical Virology, says although the vaccines under development by Pfizer and Moderna successfully created antibodies in trials, there are still doubts about whether those antibodies remain a year or two after vaccination.
​  ​There are also underlying concerns about the vaccines’ safety over the long term. Judging from past precedents, their safety and effectiveness are not something that can be determined until at least a year after a massive number of vaccinations have been administered, experts say.
​ In a worst-case scenario, antibodies could worsen the disease by essentially helping the infection of cells — a phenomenon called antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) — rather than fighting the virus pathogens.
​  ​For example, a dengue fever vaccine made by Sanofi, based on a yellow fever vaccine embedded with a part of the dengue virus genome, at first appeared to be effective. But it caused the deaths of children who had been given the vaccination due to the ADE phenomenon.
​  ​“Concerns over ADE still remain. I am an elderly person myself, but if I were asked, I would say I don’t want to get a shot,” Nakayama said. “Not all of the 120 million people (in Japan) should get the vaccinations. Children, for example, would not need it because there’s scarcely any risk of severe cases.”

HR 8970 & The COVID State

 Surveilled and Infected,

  Firstly and most cheerfully, Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii , along with Representative Tom Massey have proposed to repeal the Patriot Act and all of it's unconstitutional provisions in HR 8970.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: “The Constitution of the United States guarantees fundamental rights and freedoms for every American — including the right to privacy and protection against illegal search and seizure without probable cause. Unfortunately, the so-called Patriot Act and FISA Amendments Act allowed the intelligence community to conduct mass surveillance on Americans, collecting information about our phone calls and our emails,” said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. “Our legislation will repeal these laws and require Congress to strike the right balance between serving our national security interests and protecting our civil liberties and Fourth Amendment rights.”

The Hill has the story and 3 minute video of the honest politician (whose term will soon expire) here:
The Hawaii Democrat also called out the intelligence community, saying it “has not been transparent or honest with the American people or even Congress about what they've been doing.”

​COVID-19 Un-Explained, Larry Romanoff​  
  Mr Romanoff has been doing hard and persistent investigative reporting on this virus all year. He opens with an analysis of the waves of infection which is not informed by vitamin-D levels at various times of year, or by the different seasonal patterns of spread typical for areas like Northern Eurasia and Northern North America, as compared to tropical spread patterns, typified in Texas and Peru, for instance. Otherwise his extensive and detailed research and analysis is first rate, especially regarding the origin of the virus, which may well have been Ft Detrick Maryland, the super-spreading event at the Wuhan Games, official cover-ups by national governments, especially the US. No search for "patient zero" in the US, and all information about tests for coronavirus on frozen blood and sewage from 2019 in the US are state secrets, reportable only to the feds, not the newspapers or local authorities. That was Mike Pompeo's doing, it seems.
Oh, and just like the tetanus vaccine that immunized girls against pregnancy, the COVID vaccines may induce antibody production against a protein called syncytin-1, which is vital for the formation of the placenta in pregnant women.

​  ​Dramatic levels of “friendly fire” from the immune system may drive severe Covid-19 disease and leave patients with “long Covid” – when medical problems persist for a significant time after the virus has been beaten – scientists have said.
​  ​Researchers at Yale University found that Covid-19 patients had large numbers of misguided antibodies in their blood that targeted the organs, tissues and the immune system itself, rather than fighting off the invading virus.
​  ​The scientists compared immune responses in patients and uninfected people and discovered scores of aberrant antibodies in the former.These blocked antiviral defences, wiped out helpful immune cells, and attacked the body on multiple fronts, from the brain, blood vessels and liver to connective tissue and the gastrointestinal tract.
​  ​Further tests revealed that the more “autoantibodies” patients had in their blood, the worse their disease.

Here is the study​, with excerpt of the abstract​:​  ​Diverse Functional Autoantibodies in Patients with COVID-19
​  ​Here, we used a high-throughput autoantibody discovery technique called Rapid Extracellular Antigen Profiling (REAP) to screen a cohort of 194 SARS-CoV-2 infected COVID-19 patients and healthcare workers for autoantibodies against 2,770 extracellular and secreted proteins (the “exoproteome”). We found that COVID-19 patients exhibit dramatic increases in autoantibody reactivities compared to uninfected controls, with a high prevalence of autoantibodies against immunomodulatory proteins including cytokines, chemokines, complement components, and cell surface proteins. We established that these autoantibodies perturb immune function and impair virological control by inhibiting immunoreceptor signaling and by altering peripheral immune cell composition, and found that murine surrogates of these autoantibodies exacerbate disease severity in a mouse model of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Analysis of autoantibodies against tissue-associated antigens revealed associations with specific clinical characteristics and disease severity. In summary, these findings implicate a pathological role for exoproteome-directed autoantibodies in COVID-19 with diverse impacts on immune functionality and associations with clinical outcomes.

Keeping Up


John Ward, across the pond, has good analysis, and uses English so well again.
​  ​It does seem eternally odd, does it not, that the US judicial system seems happy to throw out Republican affidavits giving evidence of electoral fraud, but at the same time the US has a media set that suffixes every report on what President Trump says about it with “although he has no evidence to support his claims”….and the world anglosphere falls lamely into line.
​  ​It is truly Pythonic, with just a dash of Catch22: “We’re not going to review these affidavits because they’re worthless,” said the Ostriches, “so will you stop saying you were cheated, because you haven’t got any evidence – we know this, because we don’t need to look at it”.
​  ​My view is simple: it is entirely possible that Trump is lying his fat head off. But the common sense rejoinder to that pov is:
Why press ahead so vigorously with a case if (privately) you know it to be BS? And
If you the State know it to be BS, why not investigate every affidavit thoroughly and enumerate their lack of worth instance by instance?
​  ​In short, we have a plaintiff behaving like a guy who’s done his homework, and the State dismissing everything out of hand for fear of finding magic bullets flying backwards, and Presidential Heads exploding in the wrong direction.

​Alternate sets of electors have been elected in 5 contested states, to preserve the constitutional framework of Congressional choice in this contested-election. (The investigation of the election has been thwarted to date in the civil courts, but the Director of National Intelligence is due to report this Friday. The Defense Intelligence Agency should have compelling evidence.)

Jim Kunstler is paying attention as this war-game proceeds:
​  ​President Trump’s 2018 Executive Order 13848 requires the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), John Ratcliffe, to report forty-five days after the election on foreign election interference. That’s this Friday. What might Mr. Ratcliffe know? Well, supposedly everything. Except both the CIA and the FBI must be considered undependable now, with RussiaGate prankster Gina Haspel in charge of the CIA, and Christopher Wray slow-walking every requested declassified FBI document for years. So, Mr. Ratcliffe must be receiving more dependable intelligence from others, most likely Defense Intelligence.
​  ​Many readers may have heard about a supposed raid on the CIA cyber-warfare station in Frankfurt, Germany, and the seizure there of the Dominion computer servers by US Army special ops personnel. Forty-five days was probably enough time for Defense Intelligence to run forensic analysis on those servers, if, in fact, they existed and the raid actually happened. Standing by on that. We just don’t know. But if so, then Mr. Ratcliffe must have some results by now.
​  ​What nobody has asked is: in the first place, what on earth would the Dominion servers be doing in Frankfurt, outside the USA, in possession of the CIA? Is the CIA monitoring the vote tabulation… or assisting in it? This raises another question no one has addressed: Servers serve computer networks, which operate via the Internet. If Dominion vote tabulation machines all over America are not allowed to be hooked up to the Internet, how can they be a network? And why would they need a server?

There must be some mistake. This is the exact opposite of what everybody knows.
  Top U.S. intelligence officials were so concerned heading into the 2016 election that the Russians were aware of and potentially manipulating Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s plans to smear Donald Trump as a Russian agent that they personally briefed President Barack Obama on the matter, newly declassified Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents show. CIA officials also requested that the FBI investigate Russian knowledge of the Clinton campaign’s collusion smear operation.

​Aw, it all adds up to way under a million dollars cash. "Donations in kind" would be a lot more than that.

View From The Herd

 Rawhide Extras,​

​  ​I have found a Bill Gates CNN interview video that is not Twitter here:
​  ​I admit I had not watched it, ​when I sent it yesterday, ​but now I have. My read of Mr Bill is that he should not play high stakes poker.
He is very pleased with himself numerous times in the interview, with a huge smile that he actually tries to suppress a few times to look appropriately serious. 
​  Bill​ always smiles when speaking glowingly of his own prior predictions, now come true, and the efforts of his foundation and their allies, and of the failures of the Trump Administration. He is very careful in choosing his words to give them no credit at all. 
​Bill​ speaks glowingly of Biden and Fauci and all the big vaccines, and says he will take his shot in public, only when his turn comes. 
He implies this is a massive, life-saving good, and he wants to be in the same line as the common people. 
  ​Bill​ says things will not be back to normal until 2022, but implies they may be​somewhat ​ better next summer. 
Nothing about vitamin-D, though his comments seem to imply that he is taking it into account, summer, and winter​ pandemic waves,​ and all.

​  Bill​ Gates reads like a fairly open-faced book if you know where he has been coming from for the last 15 years. I read something by him, about 15 years ago. He was fascinated with vaccines, including vaccines as birth control. Now he does not say that.
  Bill sees the importance of reducing global human population to what global ecosystems can sustain. 
My personal view of the population-utility of power elites is that they keep the human herd (me; you, our families) from completely destroying the means of food production, by helping us kill a lot of each other before that happens.​

​ ​ Nobody who is not in the God-play-group likes people who play god.
​They are​ a clear threat.
Bill Gates play​s​ a very clever god, a smug and pleasant god, who deeply loves himself and invites all of us to do the same. 
It will be best for all of us.​ God knows best. God has the big data, and the science.​
​God-Bill's​ obvious point would be that the least painful form of population reduction is birth-reduction.
It’s less bad than war, pestilence, famine and death, but it does not exclude them​. 
​Unfortunately, b​irth reduction alone might not be enough to do the whole population-reduction job.​

​  ​What might I suggest as a counter-offer?
I don’t play god. I ​also ​don’t eat critters, because I practice non-violence.
I am not a tyrant. I think that we should be past massive slaughter as a means of population control. 
We are technologically and intellectually able to leave ​genocide​ behind​.  
W​e have not ​exactly​ found the societal disposition to leave it behind​ yet​.

​  ​What I suggest is our human strong point, distributed problem solving in small groups. 
Nothing is assured, but it is what we, as a species, do best, and it is what has brought us to the point where we are about to extinct ourselves from success.
​  ​Going forward, we will have the severe and permanent decline in global oil, natural gas and coal, especially the cheap, easy and high quality stuff that the permanent-growth economy needs.​ 
  Energy and Economy have already begun their terminal decline, but ​the decline​ has been​ ​labeled ​"​COVID Pandemic​"​.
COVID has destroyed “demand” for the fuel and products that are now in decline, but we do not have to​ know that​ they are in permanent decline. “Back-to-normal” just keep​s​ getting put off until later, while our owners work things out in THEIR smallish groups.

​  ​The Davos-crowd​/​World Economic Forum clan may be as smug and self-satisfied as Mr Gates looks in the video​, though they are not all doing as well as the prescient Mr Gates today​. At least they ​can look forward to the imminent​ destruction of their nationalist rivals​.​ 
​That will free them up​ ​to​ work out one, big, good solution for all of humanity, and put it into action. 
​The Global Reset is​ a work in progress, but they and their best experts are on it​. They are​ all over it.

​  ​I must disclose that what I advocate is not laid out at all, but the potential strength of it lies in customizing adaptation​s to​ specific locations and cultures and groups, like towns and churches and employee-owned-enterprises, for instance. 
Just everybody does ​their ​homework in small groups for 30 years. 
That’s my suggestion.​ It's just what people always did to survive. ​
I’m doing my homework. My health remains good at 62.

​  ​The supply lines are breaking globally. Merry Christmas. 
More and more things are out of stock. Noticed that?
It’s time to invest, not to consume. 
Invest in what you need to survive, not in New York (if I may be so bold) ​n​or Phoenix, not in an isolated bunker.​ We need each other.​
Risks involve a lot of uncertainty, and an ideal situation in 2-3 years might be terrible in 12-13 years.
We are renting a little half duplex from my Mom, in Austin, where we both work. The weather here won’t kill you, even without utilities. 
We have paid off the gardening “homestead” in Yoakum, population 6000, with a rail line, and ​a ​mixed economy. ​Cattle ranching and farming persist. 
Eagle​ ​Ford shale fracking went black. That’s ok for the moment. What’s next?​  ​
It’s a 2 hour drive each way. We spend weekends working ​in Yoakum​, and weekdays working our paid jobs. 
When will we have to choose one or the other?​ When will we have to stop driving four hours each weekend?​
The country used a lot less gasoline in the 1970s, but there were long gas lines, and alternate-day filling laws.​
When will supply-destruction become apparent? ​  
Charles Hugh Smith assesses that going forward into volatility:​

With supply destruction as a limiter, you can’t buy what you need, and prices shoot up into hyperinflation. They sure will this time.
​We will experience s​tagflation again; hyper-stag-flation…​ We will be insecure and frustrated.​
​   Can you learn to grow some of your food​?
Mainly, it gives you a comprehension of how difficult and uncertain it is, but you also develop skills and expertise. 
Perspective. Working-knowledge.​ Actual experience.

​  ​Look to how you might survive for a month if the utilities go out. Grocery store utilities will be out, too.
Gas pumps need electricity. Utilities need electricity. Phone systems need electricity.
I’m not being extreme.

​  ​The God-play-group will have to sacrifice billions of us, somewhat arbitrarily, ​at some time​.
The birth-control-surprise cannot work fast enough to deal with the absolute decline that factory farming ​will ​go though in 10-20 years. 
You may think my timeline is wrong. It might be. Some failures are bound to come sooner​; some later​.​ ​

​  ​Physically preparing as much as you can, not just thinking, is better than not preparing.
Do have a sensible, multi-purpose bike, and some spare tu​b​es, tires,​ parts,​ grease and tools.
Ride it at least every other day.

Votes And Vaccines

 Making The Rounds,

  Here is a medical grand rounds video, and you might safely skip the first 10 minutes, then skip along through the rest as it gets redundant for you. This is aimed, mainly , at those who have not been keeping up with Ivermectin treatment for COVID. 
Speaker: Pierre Kory MD (Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance-USA)

  Here is the treatment protocol. I'd use more vitamin-D. It is hard to get levels up, as I posted in Vitamin D Christmas last week.
I also think that dosing zinc 3 times per day will keep blood levels up better, and quercetin should likely be twice or more per day for the same reason. Quercetin helps zinc get into infected cells.

Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance homepage: Thanks Dr. Clif.

You can buy ivermectin, zinc, doxycycline treatment kits from India here. Dosing is one-size-sorta-fits-all. Thanks Jeremy:

"Pathogenic Priming" is that good thing I have mentioned several times, which happens when a vaccine induces an antibody response which inadvertently makes you sick or kills you when the infectious agent enters the body, and the immune response is activated.
 It's usually detected in animal trials. 
This was the problem with all the coronavirus vaccine attempts after SARS. Lab animals died when the vaccine was "successful".
Pfizer COVID Vaccine Trial Shows Alarming Evidence of Pathogenic Priming in Older Adults

​  Another funny thing can happen with 2-dose vaccines, which is what Astra-Zeneca/Oxford discovered when half of a first dose worked better than a whole first dose. What happened was that the immunity induced by the first full dose was directed against the viral vector, meant to enter the human cell and deliver the genetic material. So, the viral vector got destroyed pronto, and the second dose never did mch. When the first dose was accidentally halved in one arm of the trial, it worked better. Russia can help, by letting Astra-Zeneca give one dose of Sputnik-V vaccine, which uses a different viral vector, so the full dose enters cells each time.
  That's science for ya'. Never know what will turn up in carefully run experiments. Gotta' double and triple check for problems. Takes years.
Both AZ and Russian vaccines are cheap-for-the-world and very similar.​( I've got vitamin-D, and ivermectin ready, so not rushed.)

Russian News RT:
​  ​By washing its hands of responsibility to hear the Texas challenge to the 2020 presidential election, the nine Justices of the US Supreme Court may have sealed the country’s fate and made a kinetic civil war much more likely.
​  ​On Friday, the highest court in the land decided that Texas “lacked standing” to challenge the conduct of elections in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin under Article 3 of the US Constitution. Yet the article in question explicitly states that the SCOTUS will be the original jurisdiction in “Controversies between two or more States; – between a State and Citizens of another State; – between Citizens of different States,” among other things.
​  ​Contrary to media reports, Texas did not seek to “overturn” the election of Democrat Joe Biden. The motion filed by Attorney General Ken Paxton very explicitly called for the court to order the state legislatures thereof to seat the electors, as is their constitutional prerogative. Yes, those legislatures are majority Republican, but nothing guaranteed they would actually back President Donald Trump. After all, Georgia has a Republican governor and secretary of state, and both declared the election clean as a whistle, brushing off all evidence of alleged irregularities.
​  ​The very same media that brayed for the past four years about how the 2016 election was somehow tampered with by Russia – never offering any evidence for that – have declared the 2020 one pure as driven snow, the most secure in history, perfect in every way. In what was surely a massive coincidence, it even happened to exactly mirror the 2016 result, with Biden getting 306 electoral college votes to Trump’s 232.
​  ​The Silicon Valley tech giants, who in the run-up to the election censored and suppressed the story about Joe Biden’s family business deals overseas – that later turned out to be accurate – and slapped “disputed” warnings on Trump’s claims of electoral fraud the way they never did on ‘Russiagate,’ are now openly censoring any notion that 2020 wasn’t perfectly legal.

​Georgia Governor, Brian Kemp did not attend the Trump rally after his 19 year old daughter's 20 year old boyfriend was killed in a fiery inferno​ right after his car crashed Friday 12/4/20. The governor also went back on his promise to check all the signatures on the ballots after that. Picture of the flaming car, billowing smoke to the sky is here, along with pictures of the lovely young couple. "Accident"? Warning?
Lucy​ ​described the feelings of grief she felt over Deal's death.
'The love he showed me was beyond comprehension and I didn’t deserve it. My heart aches at the hole he left in my heart, but oh what a blessing it is that I can rejoice in the truth that we have a sovereign God and Harrison is at home with Him, and I will see him again.

​Don't let Jim Kunstler cheer you up too much. Who does he talk to about this?
​  Are you aware that in the weeks since the election there have been unusual movements of US military aircraft around the country, including C-130 “Hercules” troop carrier planes? And that the navy has two carrier groups out along the Pacific Coast and three strung along the Atlantic coast? That’s what I hear. Remember, the president cleaned house at the top of the Pentagon this fall, and probably not for nothing. Sounds like preparation for something… some extraordinary executive action to prevent the national security risk known as Joe Biden from being sworn-in as president — in the absence of anything else in a strictly constitutional way that would keep that from happening, like a Supreme Court decision that would order the rare passing on of the disputed 2020 election to the House of Representatives for resolution, with a strong statistical likelihood that the body would re-elect Mr. Trump.
  These are the sorts of things I imagine the Supreme Court justices might be palavering about and weighing over their sherry in the comfortable back room of their august clubhouse. There is, of course, the likelihood that such a momentous decision to send the vote to the House would provoke a violent, batshit crazy response from the Democratic Party’s street warriors, BLM and Antifa — thus the C-130 flights perhaps deploying troops around the country. This time, expect the Black Blocs to get their asses kicked, and swiftly. Expect also a mind-blowing raft of arrests of political celebrities on charges like treason. Does it sound like a bad dream? Yeah, kind of does. But there it is.

Electors meet in the states today:
​  ​And while 33 states require their electors to choose whoever won the state's popular vote, 17 other states don't "bind" their electors - who can vote for whomever they choose. If they cast a vote for another candidate than the one which won the state, they are considered 'faithless electors.' In 2016, two faithless electors didn't vote for Trump, while five faithless electors didn't vote for Hillary Clinton. The seven electors were from Hawaii, Texas and Washington State

  There will need to be gifts-from-above to soften the economic blows which are coming, or have already arrived, depending on how "essential" your work is. Medicare for all and legal pot are the low hanging fruit, and have been for years.
  Cheap gas helps, too, and food banks, but we have to feel like we are getting something new from the system after we suffer losses. 
If we got Medicare for all before the collapse, what could they give us to placate us?
'Seems Like a Good Policy!' CBO Shows Medicare for All Could Cover Everyone for $650 Billion Less Per Year
The analysis shows that administrative costs under a single-payer healthcare system "will be lower than what even the most rabid Medicare for All supporters have traditionally claimed."

Germany Looks To Protect Russia-Led Nord Stream 2 From US Sanctions
​  ​The German state where the controversial Russia-led natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 is planned to land has proposed the creation of a state-protected foundation that would hold the assets of Nord Stream in a bid to protect the project from U.S. sanctions, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing a proposal of the provincial government of Mecklenburg–West Pomerania.

​"European values" are the edicts of unelected Eurocrats. The old, outdated countries believe in national sovereignty. Soros is powerful.
