Protected From Us

 Threat Vectors,

Caitlin Juhnstone's memorial to "Rummy": 
  The system isn’t designed to protect us from society’s worst, it’s designed to protect society’s worst from us. It’s designed to keep us turning the gears of industry without looking around and noticing that we’re all getting fucked in the ass by an alliance of plutocrats and security state insiders who only care about power and money. It’s designed to keep us too busy and propagandized to use the power of our numbers to take back what the bastards have stolen from us, and to make sure there’s enough guns on their side to kill us all dead if we try.
  Donald Rumsfeld was all the worst things about our world. He perfectly embodied the corrupt, bloodthirsty, ecocidal, omnicidal, oppressive, exploitative, deceitful status quo that is driving humanity toward extinction. The US-centralized empire is Donald Rumsfeld. It might as well have his face and his name.

John Ward broaches 2 topics together, in the interest of un-protecting society's-worst from us, maybe a little bit:
​  ​The Midazolam mystery remains – despite attempts by many to explain the doubling of its use in care homes and NHS hospitals after March 2020.
​  ​Dr Amy Proffitt, of the Association for Palliative Medicine, told the Daily Mail, “I absolutely do not believe that there have been cases of euthanasia in care homes related to Covid-19. I can understand why people are raising concerns, but when prescribed and used appropriately, midazolam will not hasten or prolong someone’s death – it will just give comfort.”
​  ​She added that a rise in the use of midazolam was to be expected because the drug would have been an “obvious choice” to give to those with problems breathinga symptom of coronavirus.
​  ​I have no axe to grind about Ms Proffitt, but her explanation really doesn’t cut it. She doesn’t give us any evidence to support her lack of belief in the anomaly – nor does she accept any possibility that the drug might not have been “used appropriately”. Perhaps most unconvincing, however, is Amy’s contention that it was ‘an “obvious choice” to give to those with problems breathing – a symptom of coronavirus’. This flatly contradicts most medical opinion I’ve seen.
​  ​The authoritative RXlist site clearly states that ‘Intravenous midazolam has been associated with respiratory depression and respiratory arrest’. The British Journal of Pharmacology stresses that it ‘requires special precaution if used among the elderly, and can repress efforts to breathe’. Covid19 is, in its critical phase, essentially a condition involving respiratory difficulties. Given that reality, midazolam is hardly an “obvious choice”.
​  ​But Amy Proffitt is also choosing to ignore one simple fact: in the Gosport Hospital case, the drug was at the centre of a misuse and abuse scandal where the elderly were very clearly being quietly bumped off. Further, this has prompted several police forces to investigate 15,000 deaths involving Midazolam during 2020. The investigation is still active this year.​..
  (This will potentially serve to create walled monopolies in the ranks of "compliant" megacorporations, and to beel societies for the good of the global environment, and those who have raced to completely destroyed it up until yesterday morning.)​
Do you know what ESG is?
​  ​What I’m about to write will be poo-poohed by the “Its only a” brigade…but it’s actually another potential scam following on from the success of carbon trading and Climate Change BS. ESG is about “setting standards” in the corporate world that conform to the rigid belief systems of faux-liberal tartan paint salesmen: it stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. Can you imagine any of the multinational sociopaths making, distributing and selling stuff taking any notice of their ESG rating unless there’s money in it for them? No, neither can I….but ESG trading platforms are already emerging – with our favourite philanthropist Jamie Dimon leading the way.

​More on this confluence of coincidences... (If the wealthy are not to become impoverished, then the masses of the poor will need to donate their living-rations.)
  The new net zero carbon economy will mean permanent austerity for the majority. The Technate will provide a universal basic income (UBI), or some variation of the concept, to be paid in Central Bank Digital Currency (CDBC). This will mean that no one will have their own money, other than the chosen stakeholders, as all transactions will be monitored and controlled by the central banks.
  Those who oppose the neofeudal authority of the corporate, stakeholder Technate and refuse to comply with the imposition of biosecurity obligations will have their CBDC restricted or switched off. The pseudopandemic has established the framework of the biosecurity state that will control all our lives. The vaccine passports are the gateway to full biometric identity for every citizen in the new normal Technate.

On the latest threat, which I sincerely wish I could catch this summer, and be done with:
​  As you can see, the Delta variant has a 0.1% case fatality rate (CFR) out of 31,132 Delta sequence infections confirmed by investigators. That is the same rate as the flu and is much lower than the CFR for the ancestral strain or any of the other variants. And as we know, the CFR is always higher than the infection fatality rate (IFR), because many of the mildest and asymptomatic infections go undocumented, while the confirmed cases tend to have a bias toward those who are more evidently symptomatic.
  In other words, Delta is literally the flu with a CFR identical to it. This is exactly what every respiratory pandemic has done through history: morphed into more transmissible and less virulent form that forces the other mutations out since you get that one.

Naw, nobody's really stupid enough to start nuclear aramageddon this week... 
Plus, Putin and Biden made a deal recently. That's enough.
​  ​The details of last week's Royal Navy HMS Defender incident near Crimea in the Black Sea which saw "warning shots" fired by the Russian side continue to be shrouded in mystery and accusations and counter-accusations between the Kremlin and the West.
​  ​On Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin inserted a new bombshell allegation regarding the dangerous June 23 encounter which could have sparked open conflict. During a live call-in news show, an annual tradition where the Russian leader fields ordinary citizens' direct questions, Putin said that a US reconnaissance aircraft was present during the incident.​  
(Electronically spying on provoked Russian military response.)

​Russian news:
​  Speaking at his annual ‘Direct Line’ call-in show, Putin revealed that a US strategic airplane took off from an airfield on the island of Crete and flew towards Russia on the morning before HMS Defender entered Russian waters.
  However, despite the provocation, the two NATO members do not want a conflict, and it is not true to say that the world is now standing on the brink of a world war, he said.
“Even if we had sunk that ship, it would still be hard to imagine that the world would be on the brink of World War III,” the president said. “Because those who are doing this know that they can’t get out of this war victorious. That’s a very important thing.”
  The president also pondered the exact reasons for the British provocation, noting that matters discussed at his recent summit with his American counterpart, Joe Biden, in Geneva might offer an explanation.
“Why was it necessary to make such a provocation? For what?” he asked. “To show that they have no respect for the choice of the Crimeans to join Russia?”

Eleni sent this expressed view of the Belorussian Defense Minister:
Belarusian Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin at the 9th Moscow Conference on International Security:  
​  ​“During the previous Moscow conference we expressed our opinion about underlying reasons for the concept of Europe with different speeds [?], about the formation of the Germany-France vector and the UK-USA vector of European politics. As we expected, individual Eastern Europe countries rushed into the transatlantic embrace of American allies. Poland, the Baltic states, and Ukraine trade in their sovereignty and offer brazen Russophobia as a product. As part of the trend American troops penetrate Eastern Europe, expand the occupation zone. Eastern Europe is getting rapidly militarized. A military base is being built in Poland. U.S. tank battalions are endlessly rotated in and out a dozen of kilometers away from the Belarusian border under the guise of protection of the Baltic states. Ukraine wants British troops stationed in the country. Meanwhile, we witness how troops and forces of third countries master the theater of future warfare near our borders. Military budgets are getting inflated. Offensive weapons are being bought in massive amounts.”

​Craig Murray (also under lawfare assault) on Julian Assange:​
,,.the FBI turned to an informant in Iceland, Sigi Thordarson, who was willing to testify that Assange had been involved with him in, inter alia, hacking private banking information and tracking Icelandic police vehicles. This was of course much easier to portray as crime, as opposed to journalism, so the second superseding indictment was produced based on Thordarson’s story, which was elaborated with Thordarson by an FBI team.  
The difficulty was that Thordarson was hardly a reliable witness. He had already been convicted in Iceland for stealing approximately $50,000 from Wikileaks and with impersonating Julian Assange online, not to mention the inconvenient fact he is a registered sex offender for online activities with under-age boys. The FBI team was in fact expelled from Iceland by the Icelandic government, who viewed what the FBI was doing with Thordarson as wholly illegitimate.
  Thordarson has now told Icelandic magazine Stundin that his allegations against Assange contained in the indictment are untrue, and that Assange had not solicited the hacking of bank or police details. This is hardly a shock, though Thordarson’s motives for coming clean now are obscure; he is plainly a deeply troubled and often malicious individual.
​  ​T​​hordarson was always the most unreliable of witnesses, and I find it impossible to believe that the FBI cooperation with him was ever any more than deliberate fabrication of evidence by the FBI.
​  ​Edward Snowden has tweeted that Thordarson recanting will end the case against Julian Assange. Most certainly it should end it, but I fear it will not.
