Fellow Travelers,

Joe Rogan, Elon Musk react to Canadian trucker convoy
​  ​Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk and podcaster Joe Rogan have spoken about the Canadian truckers driving across the country to protest the government’s Covid-19 mandates, after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced them as a “fringe minority” with “unacceptable views.”
​  ​The ‘Freedom Convoy’ that set out from British Columbia and is expected to reach the Canadian capital of Ottawa sometime this weekend was ignored by the major media outlets at first. As it approached Ontario, however, the convoy became a political football.
​  ​Trudeau denounced the truckers and said they “do not represent the views of Canadians” in a televised speech on Wednesday. On Thursday morning, he announced he had been “exposed” to Covid-19 and would quarantine for five days – thereby missing the convoy’s arrival in Ottawa – even though he has already had the virus and been vaccinated and boosted.
​  ​Jagmeet Singh, whose New Democrats are propping up Trudeau’s minority government, also condemned the truckers and accused them of spreading “false information” via “inflammatory, divisive and hateful comments.” He also criticized his brother-in-law for donating to the protest. Canadian media reported that Jodhveer Singh Dhaliwal had asked for his donation back after being told of “the true nature” of the convoy.​..
​  Benjamin Dichter, one of the organizers of the ‘Freedom Convoy’ and the group’s official spokesman, said they are peaceful and law-abiding. He told the Toronto Sun that the convoy is a protest over Trudeau’s government forcing drivers to wear masks even when alone inside their trucks, a vaccine mandate, and a requirement to get the jab before crossing the US-Canada border.

​  ​The 11,000-truck, 93-mile long convoy is traveling from the country’s westernmost province, British Columbia, toward Ottawa, the country’s capital, where they will hold a demonstration on Jan. 29. The truckers said they will not leave until the mandates are lifted...
As of Jan. 15, the Canadian government required all truck drivers entering Canada from the U.S., regardless of citizenship, to be fully vaccinated against COVID. Any driver who cannot show proof of vaccination will be denied entry and placed in quarantine for two weeks.
​  ​The U.S. government implemented the same policy last week on the American side of the border.
“We’re going to end mandates,” convoy co-organizer Chris Barber said.
“It’s not about anti-vaccination — that’s everybody’s personal choice — this is about the mandates,” said Barber.
He added:
​  ​“The straw that broke the camel’s back was the U.S.A. border for commercial drivers, and you have to show the COVID passport — a lot of guys are going to lose their jobs over that.”
​  ​Barber, a truck driver of 28 years, said he himself is vaccinated, but he wants to support fellow drivers who are not.
“This (COVID-19 vaccination) passport has gone too far,” said Barber. “If we can’t get across the border freely, and we’re being forced to [be vaccinated] by the federal government, we can take a stand or we can’t.”

​  ​Freedom Convoy 2022, the group that organized the Canadian trucker protest, reported initially having 1,600 trucks. The convoy, which now has nearly 50,000 trucks, will be in Ottowa by Saturday with the goal of getting "the government of Canada to repeal its cross border Covid tracking passport / phone app and ALL Covid-19 vaccine mandates,​ ...​
​  ​The Canadian convoy has reportedly been joined by some American truckers and in Ontario, farmers came in tractors to show support.

​...​“There is a whole lot of overreach of the government, certainly in the U.S. and Canada and around the world,” said Mahadeo, who was born in Guyana. “Governments are using this as an opportunity to gain more leverage against the people.”

Update (Friday 0711ET): Organizers of the "Freedom Convoy" have "received confirmation that GoFundMe has released our first batch of funds" following reports Thursday, the crowdfunding platform blocked access to the money. 

​  ​The internet was in an uproar yesterday when GoFundMe blocked access to the funds that would help support the convoy of at least 50,000 truckers headed to Ottawa, Canada's capital, on Saturday. The donations are expected to be dished out to truckers who participated in the rally, paying for their fuel, food, and hotel. GoFundMe wanted more clarification from the group on how the money would be spent.​..
​  Sadly, the legacy media felt it was necessary to publish news articles implying that GoFundMe had frozen our funds for a variety of outrageous reasons. In reality, the temporary hold was due to international banking regulations which dictate many of GoFundMe policies. It is common practice with GoFundMe to conduct this kind of due diligence to ensure the funds are legitimate.

New Harvard, Yale & Stanford Data Show 4 Out of 5 Americans Have Covid ‘Natural Immunity’​ 
   A CDC-sponsored database in partnership with Yale, Harvard, and Stanford universities shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans have natural immunity from prior infections, Wildfire can exclusively report.
​  ​The CDC released a study last week called “COVID-19 Cases and Hospitalizations by COVID-19 Vaccination Status and Previous COVID-19 Diagnosis — California and New York, May–November 2021.” The findings were reported by Agence France-Presse.
​  ​“During America’s last surge of the coronavirus driven by the Delta variant, people who were unvaccinated but survived Covid were better protected than those who were vaccinated and not previously infected,” AFP noted about the new study.
​  ​“The finding is the latest to weigh in on a debate on the relative strengths of natural versus vaccine-acquired immunity against SARS-CoV-2, but comes this time with the imprimatur of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),”​ ...
​  ​The UKHSA report also showed that nearly the entire population of Great Britain has some form of antibodies to Covid-19.

​("Worse than nothing" means "helps the virus")​  
CDC study suggests unboosted vaccines become worse than nothing against Omicron
...Pfizer's mRNA vaccine performed worse than Moderna's, the researchers wrote. "The upper bound of the 95% CI was consistently greater than 1 starting at 3 months after second dose" for the former and six months for the latter.

​Steve Kirsch: Embalmers Find Veins & Arteries Filled with Never Before Seen Rubbery Clots
​  ​Funeral Director and embalmer Richard Hirschman reveals, for the first time ever, arteries and veins filled with unnatural blood clot combinations with strange fibrous materials that are completely filling the vascular system. He has gone from seeing 50% of his embalmed cases with these types of blockages rise to almost 80%. It only started happening after the vaccines were rolled out.
​  ​This doesn’t happen to everyone. Only those who die after vaccination. So he can tell who was vaccinated.

​If a vaccine is approved for children in the US, the manufacturer is essentially absolved from all liability. That's the important point.​
​  Dr. Anthony Fauci this week predicted children under age 5 will require a three-dose regimen of the COVID vaccine, but Swedish health authorities said the vaccines provide no benefit to kids that age, Norway is making them optional and Denmark is revisiting its decision to vaccinate young children.

  ​Omicron BA-2 is increasing cases rapidly in highly-vaccinated Denmark and France, which have already had lots of Delta, and even more Omicron BA-1.
BA-2 and BA-1 are derived from an ancestor "we" never knew about, which diverged several years ago, before there was a pandemic, and seemed to live in mice, maybe lab mice.​..
​  ​BA.2 is considered a sub-lineage of original Omicron (which is now referred to as Omicron BA.1), however these two genetic variants seem to have diverged months BEFORE Omicron actually appeared.
​  ​BA.2 has 28 more mutations, than Omicron, with no intermediate variants seen between them​..​.This is certainly a genetic oddity, just as Omicron is a genetic oddity with the ancestor that disappeared 1.5 years before Omicron appeared. Both of these oddities raise a possibility that both Omicron BA.1 and BA.2 do not have a natural origin.​..
​  BA2 is especially good at REINFECTING Danes and Frenchmen. Not sure if the vaccinated people are more susceptible to reinfection, but it is possible and always seemed to be the case even before Omicron.

​  ​Omicron Covid strain evolved in mice – Chinese study​   
​  ​T​​he study into Omicron, published in the Journal of Biosafety and Biosecurity, found that “coronavirus slowly accumulated mutations over time in mice” before the virus was then “transmitted back to humans by reverse zoonotic.”
​  ​The research, led by Dr. Xu Jianguo, who works for the National Institute for Communicable Diseases Control and Prevention of China, has identified mice as the “most likely intermediate host.” Researchers established that the “mutations profile” of the strain “shows that the virus has adapted to infect the cells of mice.”

​Clinical Outcomes in Patients Infected with Omicron B-1.1.5​ (Much milder. Results would be better with Vitamin-D and early outpatient ivermectin-based treatment.)
 Results: Our analyses included 52,297 cases with SGTF (Omicron) and 16,982 cases with non-SGTF (Delta [B.1.617.2]) infections, respectively. Hospital admissions occurred among 235 (0.5%) and 222 (1.3%) of cases with Omicron and Delta variant infections, respectively. Among cases first tested in outpatient settings, the adjusted hazard ratios for any subsequent hospital admission and symptomatic hospital admission associated with Omicron variant infection were 0.48 (0.36-0.64) and 0.47 (0.35-0.62), respectively. Rates of ICU admission and mortality after an outpatient positive test were 0.26 (0.10-0.73) and 0.09 (0.01-0.75) fold as high among cases with Omicron variant infection as compared to cases with Delta variant infection. Zero cases with Omicron variant infection received mechanical ventilation, as compared to 11 cases with Delta variant infections throughout the period of follow-up (two-sided p<0.001). Median duration of hospital stay was 3.4 (2.8-4.1) days shorter for hospitalized cases with Omicron variant infections as compared to hospitalized patients with Delta variant infections, reflecting a 69.6% (64.0-74.5%) reduction in hospital length of stay
Conclusions: During a period with mixed Delta and Omicron variant circulation, SARS-CoV-2 infections with presumed Omicron variant infection were associated with substantially reduced risk of severe clinical endpoints and shorter durations of hospital stay  

​Alex Berenson:
​  Scotland, Britain, Israel, and Denmark are four of the world’s most highly vaccinated countries. They all have 90 percent adult Covid vaccination rates and 60 percent adult boosters. Yet the vast majority of deaths are occurring in vaccinated people; serious cases are soaring; and infections are almost literally off the charts.
This is Covid vaccine failure at the most profound and basic level.
  SCOTLAND: Covid death rates (RATES, not raw numbers) by vaccination status for the last four weeks. Death rates in vaccinated but unboosted people have been higher than rates in the unvaccinated each week.
Also, 87 percent of total deaths occurred in vaccinated people in the most recent week.

The sociopathic American oligarchy that assassinated John, Bobby and Martin is still in power. It controls us, far more completely than before.

  Two of the greatest speeches ever delivered by an American president bookend this extraordinary documentary film. It opens with President John F. Kennedy giving the commencement speech at American University on June 10, 1963 and it closes with his civil rights speech to the American people the following day.​..
​  What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children – not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women – not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.​..
​  ​One hundred years of delay have passed since President Lincoln freed the slaves, yet their heirs, their grandsons, are not fully free. They are not yet freed from the bonds of injustice. They are not yet freed from social and economic oppression. And this Nation, for all its hopes and all its boasts, will not be fully free until all its citizens are free.​..​

Just wondering...  Whу are armed Americans operating in the trenches of Eastern Ukraine?
  Forward Observations, which apparently consists mostly of former American servicemen, came into the spotlight after Russian military-related social media communities started discussing their e-bravado over being in the conflict zone.
  Men with stars and stripes shared pictures of themselves, faces blurred, as they arrived in Severodonetsk.
This is where the 53rd Separate Mechanized Brigade of the Ukrainian Ground Forces is deployed. It apparently includes ex-fighters from the currently nonexistent infamous volunteer Aidar Battalion, which was staffed by right-wing individuals often described as ‘neo-Nazi’ by the media.

Russia rejects the ruling order of that oligarchic cabal. How inconvenient. Whatever shall we do?

Medical Freedom Rally

Autonomous Bodies,

  There were medical freedom rallies across the world yesterday, including the one in Washington DC. You may not have heard...
Steve Kirsch, who has put a lot of his own money into making medical facts available had a few comments:
Hi, I'm Steve,
​  ​I am not a doctor. I’m worse. I’m an engineer with two degrees from MIT.
I look at data. I make decisions based on what the data says, not on what people tell me to think.
​  ​After 3 relatives of a friend of mine died right after being vaccinated, I started looking at the data from the clinical trials, from studies, from the government, and from doctors.​ ​
​  ​What the data said was troubling. Very troubling.
First of all, this entire pandemic was completely avoidable.
​  ​We had an early treatment protocol in March of 2020 developed by George Fareed and Brian Tyson. Nobody dies on their protocol if they get treated early. Zero. And only a few people got hospitalized. Yet today, the NIH is saying nothing about this protocol.
​  ​That is ridiculous. If they are going to mandate anything, they should mandate you get this protocol if you get COVID. But they don’t. Instead, doctors can have their licenses revoked if they prescribe early treatment drugs like ivermectin and Fluvoxamine.
​  ​We don’t need masks, we don’t need vaccines, we don’t need mandates, and we don’t need lockdowns. We never did.
What we need to do is to start listening to the doctors who have treated thousands of COVID cases with no deaths. Is that too much to ask?
​  ​But the NIH refused to listen to these doctors.  And instead, they focused on the creation of a vaccine which the evidence shows is making things worse. Much worse. COVID cases are at an all time high.
​  We are being mandated to take a vaccine for a societal benefit without ever being shown the risk-benefit analysis.
There is a reason for that. The benefit is negative. According to over 12 studies, the vaccines are killing at least 15 people for every life that the vaccines were projected to save. And we are permanently disabling even more. For kids, I’ve seen a risk benefit analysis showing we kill over 100 kids to save 1 kid from COVID.

​I'm not a "top doctor", not even employed, but I agree with these guys and gals.
"Do Not Comply" - Top Doctors Speak At 'Defeat The Mandates' Rally In DC

​Meryl Nass MD, an expert in bioweapons and Anthrax vaccine toxicity, Gulf War Syndrome and Lyme Disease​, has been treating her patients in Maine for COVID from early 2020, and now has her license suspended for "misinformation" about COVID-vaccines and treatments. Everything she has said and done is backed by scientific evidence, so "misinformation"? She has been ordered to undergo Neuropsychiatric Testing ("Back in the USSR!") at a facility designated by the Maine Medical Board, and to turn over all of her office records ("fishing expedition"). There has been no patient complaint, but she's long been a "troublemaker". 
Crucifixion is no longer the prescribed punishment for "troublemakers", but this does have similarities.

I posted an interview with Dr. Nass, done by Tessa (fights robots) Lena last time. 
Here is Dr. Nass talking to Robert Kennedy Jr. She seems quite cogent and in command of facts and reason, to me... See what you think.

  Caitlin Johnstone argues that algorithmic censorhip, the slow, invisible fade-to-black, is worse than traditional censorship. 
It's a good argument, but it's just new-normal-censorship. It's what's-not-for-dinner these days. 
  This began in the 2016 primaries for me. My news-email sends just got blocked as I pointed out the DNC vote stealing done for Clinton, against Sanders. That's why I added the blog format edition.
​  ​Journalist Jonathan Cook has a new blog post out on his experience with being throttled into invisibility by Silicon Valley algorithmic suppression that will ring all too familiar for any online content creators who’ve been sufficiently critical of official western narratives over the last few years.
​  ​“My blog posts once attracted tens of thousands of shares,” Cook writes. “Then, as the algorithms tightened, it became thousands. Now, as they throttle me further, shares can often be counted in the hundreds. ‘Going viral’ is a distant memory.”
​  ​“I won’t be banned,” he adds. “I will fade incrementally, like a small star in the night sky – one among millions – gradually eclipsed as its neighbouring suns grow ever bigger and brighter. I will disappear from view so slowly you won’t even notice.”
​  ​Cook says this began after the 2016 US election, which was when a major narrative push began for Silicon Valley corporations to eliminate “fake news” from their platforms and soon saw tech executives brought before the US Senate and told that they must “quell information rebellions” and come up with a mission statement expressing their commitment to “prevent the fomenting of discord” online.

​John Helmer does a word-salad analysis of Secretary of State Blinken's remarks about Russia and diplomacy at the recent meeting with Russian Foreign Secretary, Lavrov. This is the kind of analysis pioneered in WW-2, to discern the base assumptions underlying Nazi propaganda. (See the detailed analysis, please.)
​  ​When the RAND method is used to analyze what Blinken told the  US press, following his meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, it is revealed that Blinken has no intention whatever of negotiating a non-aggression pact with the Russians on any terms. According to the scientific method devised by the best and brightest Americans for dealing with their enemies, it’s now clear from Blinken’s own words that he is unable to understand what Russians tell him. In the mind behind the words there is only one compulsive idea – attack, punish, destroy Russia.

World In Context

 Dissipative Systems,

  Should every event in the world be taken in this context? It simplifies the interpretation of politics.
2022: Energy limits are likely to push the world economy into recession ,Gail Tverberg
In my view, there are three ways a growing economy can be sustained:
  With a growing supply of cheap-to-produce energy products, matched to the economy’s energy needs.
  With growing debt and other indirect promises of future goods and services, such as rising asset prices.
  With growing complexity, such as greater mechanization of processes and supply lines that extend around the world.
All three of these approaches are reaching limits. The empty shelves some of us have been seeing recently are testimony to the fact that complexity is reaching a limit. And the growth in debt looks increasingly like a bubble that can easily be popped, perhaps by rising interest rates.
  In my view, the first item listed is critical at this time: Is the supply of cheap-to-produce energy products growing fast enough to keep the world economy operating and the debt bubble inflated? My analysis suggests that it is not...
  The basic reason why oil production is low is because oil prices have been too low for producers since about 2012. Companies have had to cut back on developing new fields in higher cost areas because oil prices have not been high enough to justify such investments. For example, producers from shale formations could add new wells outside the rapidly depleting “core” regions if the oil price were much higher, perhaps $120 to $150 per barrel. But US WTI oil prices averaged only $57 per barrel in 2019, $39 per barrel in 2020, and $68 per barrel in 2021, so this new investment has not been started.
  Recently, oil prices have been over $80 per barrel, but even this is considered too high by politicians. For example, countries are releasing oil from their strategic oil reserves to try to force oil prices down...
  Now, in 2022, we are hitting the issue of very slowly rising natural gas production head-on in many parts of the world. Countries that import natural gas without long-term contracts are facing spiking prices. Countries in Europe and Asia are especially affected. The United States has mostly been isolated from the spiking prices thanks to producing its own natural gas. Also, only a small portion of the natural gas produced by the US is exported (9% in 2020).
  The reason for the small export percentage is because shipping natural gas as LNG tends to be very expensive. Long-distance LNG shipping only makes economic sense if there is a several dollar (or more) price differential between the buyer’s price and the seller’s costs that can be used to cover the high transport costs...
  High natural gas prices can have very adverse consequences. In areas with high prices, products made using natural gas as a raw material will tend to be squeezed out. One such product is urea, used as a nitrogen fertilizer. With less nitrogen fertilizer available, food production is likely to fall...
  Coal seems to be having the same problem with rising costs as oil. The cost of producing the coal is rising because of depletion, but citizens cannot afford to pay more for end products made with coal, such as electricity, steel and solar panels. Coal producers need higher prices to cover their higher costs, but it becomes increasingly difficult to pass these higher costs on to consumers. This is because politicians want to keep electricity prices low to keep their citizens and businesses happy...
  China is the world’s largest coal producer and consumer. A major concern is that the country has serious coal depletion problems. It has experienced rolling blackouts since the fall of 2020...
  With these low natural gas prices, as well as coal pollution concerns, a significant amount of US electricity production was switched from coal to natural gas. It is my view that this change left coal in the ground, potentially for later use. Thus, if natural gas prices rise again, US coal production could perhaps rise again. The catch, of course, is that many coal-fired electricity-generating plants in the US have been taken out of service...
  Wind and solar, with their subsidies, tend to look more profitable to investors, even though they cannot support the economy without a substantial amount of supplementary electricity production from other electricity providers, which, perversely, they are driving out of business through their subsidized pricing structure...
  Politicians would like us to believe that we live in a world of everlasting economic growth and that the only thing we should fear is climate change. They base their analyses on models by economists who seem to think that an “invisible hand” will fix all problems. The economy can always grow; enough fossil fuels and other resources will always be available. Governments seem to be able to print money; somehow, this money will be transformed into physical goods and services. With these assumptions, the only problems are distant ones that central banks and carbon taxes can handle.
  The realists are historians and physicists. They tell us that a huge number of past economies have collapsed when their populations attempted to grow at the same time that their resource bases were depleting. These realists tell us that there is a high probability that our current economy will eventually collapse, as well...
  We now seem to be encountering lower energy supply while population continues to rise. It takes energy for any activity that we think of as contributing to GDP to occur. We should not be surprised if we are at the edge of a recession. If we cannot get our energy problems solved, the downturn could be very long-lasting.

Medicine under Attack: A Conversation with Dr. Meryl Nass
Dr. Nass had her license suspended for "misinformation"
  This story is about Dr. Meryl Nass, a brilliant and courageous human being and a top medical doctor whom I had the honor of interviewing recently and who is currently under attack in a way that I thought was only possible in my old Soviet homeland—before my time.
  It is really strange. Like, really really strange.
Dr. Nass’ mainstream credentials are impeccable. Here is an excerpt from Dr. Nass’ pre-COVID bio:
  Dr. Meryl Nass earned her BS in Biology from MIT and her MD from
the University of Mississippi in 1980. She is known for
expertise in anthrax, bioterrorism, anthrax vaccine and Gulf War
syndrome. She identified the first modern use of anthrax as a
biological weapon, which occurred in 1978 during the Rhodesian Civil
War. She has testified for seven Congressional committees on
bioterrorism, vaccines, the anthrax letters and Gulf War syndrome.
She has consulted for the Director of National Intelligence and the
World Bank on the prevention and mitigation of bioterrorism.

As you know. It must not be permitted: Ivermectin Could Destroy Justification For Lockdowns And Vaccine Mandates

From CNBC, "mainstream media": 
  It’s too soon to know if Covid’s omicron variant will hasten the end of the nearly two-year-long Covid-19 pandemic. But some experts say that when it comes to contagiousness, omicron could be the “most transmissible the virus can get.”
  The reason: Due to “evolutionary constraints” on how many mutations and changes the virus can make, omicron could be “the ultimate version of this virus,” Dr. William Moss, executive director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, tells CNBC Make It.
  Studies show that omicron is more than four times as transmissible as Covid’s delta variant, and that it evades immunity better than delta. As long as the virus keeps spreading, Moss says, it’ll continue to mutate going forward, creating more variants down the road.
  But those mutations will probably be like “sons of omicron,” he says — not so different that the virus can escape immunity from vaccines or previous omicron infections.

Sewage Surveillance Reveals Omicron Arrived In US Even Earlier Than Believed (And Is Disappearing Fast)

Bombshell: CDC Admits Natural Immunity Superior to Vaccinated Immunity Alone at Preventing Covid Hospitalizations & Deaths

Scottish data shows that the COVID-19 age-standardized case rate is highest among the two-dose vaccinated and lowest among unvaccinated! It further shows this trend of negative efficacy for the double-vaccinated persisting for hospitalizations and deaths.

The UK has well established mechanisms of gathering and collating public health data.
  In recent months, a trend has been noted in the England and Wales all-cause mortality data, which has rung some alarm bells. Young males aged 15-19 have shown a rising death rate compared to the five-year average 2015-2019. At the same time, a large insurance company in the U.S. has reported a significant increase in deaths in the under 40s. This is obviously of concern, whatever the cause, but one possible factor which needs to be urgently excluded is any link to vaccine injury.   The association between myocarditis and the mRNA vaccines, especially in younger age groups and in males, is already well established. It is particularly urgent as second doses and boosters are being rolled out, possibly putting adolescents at even higher risk, and at a time when the Omicron variant is much milder.
  Members of HART, the Health Advisory and Recovery Team, have joined with other senior academics and health professionals to call for an immediate investigation into the increasing death rate amongst 15-19-year-old males since May of this year.

British Medical Journal Demands Immediate Release of All COVID-19 Vaccine, Treatment Data

They changed the UK data category from "fully vaccinated" (2-3) to "triple vaccinated", but it's the same story. 
The vaccinated get more COVID infections per 100,000 in all but the "under 18" age group.

  It was very noticeable when this week British military flights delivering weapons to Ukraine deliberately avoided German airspace - so much so that Berlin issued a statement clarifying that the German government had not demanded this ahead of time, saying it has "not denied access to its airspace as the UK did not submit a request, there has been no dispute between the UK and Germany on this issue."
  Despite being a lead NATO country and close US ally, it's become clear Berlin has sought to avoid unnecessarily provoking Moscow, also as the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is soon to come online pending the significant hurdle of regulatory approval. This week it became evident that Germany will not directly export weapons to Ukraine, even as allies like the UK and US have begun to. This also has a lot to do with a long-standing arms export control policy which prevents German arms from going into geopolitical hot zones.... "Germany is blocking North Atlantic Treaty Organization ally Estonia from giving military support to Ukraine by refusing to issue permits for German-origin weapons to be exported to Kyiv 
[not even German-made rifles, already stockpiled in other NATO countries] as it braces for a potential Russian invasion," the report say.

  And instead of locking arms with the U.S. and other transatlantic allies to help Ukraine prepare for an attack, Germany has sought to placate Russia by taking some of the West’s most powerful deterrents off the table.
  As the crisis has intensified, German officials and politicians have strenuously opposed using the threat of suspending Russia from SWIFT, the Belgium-based international payments system, a step that would make it extremely difficult for Russian entities to engage in international commerce.
  Even Germany’s conservative opposition cautioned against using SWIFT as a bargaining chip. Friedrich Merz, leader of the center-right Christian Democrats, said suspending Russia’s access to the network would be the financial market equivalent of dropping an “atomic bomb.”
  While Scholz has signaled that halting Nord Stream 2, a natural gas pipeline between Germany and Russia awaiting final regulatory approval, would “have to be discussed” if Russia invades Ukraine, he has stopped well short of pledging to do so.

Can Russia find a way to avoid fulfilling this NATO Ukraine-invasion prophecy?
  US training and support for Ukraine’s military is a major point of tensions between the US and Russia, and the cooperation goes far beyond the special operators’ mission. Since the 2014 US-backed coup in Kyiv, the US has provided about $2.5 billion in military aid to Ukraine.
  Last week, Yahoo News reported that the CIA has been training Ukrainian paramilitaries at a base inside the United States since 2015. The New York Times reported that the Biden administration is considering backing an insurgency in Ukraine if Russia invades.

​  ​"Russia is moving two divisions of its S-400 Triumph air-defense systems, designed to take down enemy warplanes, into neighboring Belarus to take part in military exercises, the Ministry of Defense confirmed on Friday," Russian state sources report.S-400 missiles are reportedly being transported to Belarus all the way from ​  ​Russia's far east. While it comes as tensions are on edge, as the world's eyes are watching the Russia-Ukraine border, the transfer of major military hardware to Minsk is said to be part of preparations for joint Belarus-Russian war drills set to run February 10 through 20.
​  ​The exercises will in part be aimed at "reinforcing the state border." This is also likely intended as a response to this week's White House-ordered "lethal aid" delivery to Ukraine's military. The UK has also been flying in repeat plane-loads of weaponry, most likely including anti-tank missiles.

Blinken was supposed to have that written response yesterday for Lavrov. He did not. "Next week".
​  ​Blinken's meeting with Lavrov came two days after President Joe Biden muddled the US message of severe consequences for Russia, saying at a press conference that a "minor incursion" might not trigger the same response from NATO as an invasion. Biden clarified Thursday that any Russian troops crossing Ukraine's border would constitute an invasion...

Seize The Initiative

 Politically Independent,

  The WEF "Great Reset" has not quite worked out yet, and the window of opportunity for this final-solution is considerably less open than it was a year ago.
The trajectory of that plan was to change everything at once for everybody. Vaccine-passports on smartphones would also be wallets for central bank digital currency, and record where you were and what you spent it on, to be reviewed for appropriateness... You were on the road to "Own nothing and be happy" by 2030. 
Tessa (fights robots) Lena had The Great Reset For Dummies in late 2020, which is still a wonderful perspective piece.

​  ​Thus, the practical aim of the Great Reset is to fundamentally restructure the world’s economy and geopolitical relations based on two assumptions: one, that every element of nature and every life form is a part of the global inventory (managed by the allegedly benevolent state, which, in turn, is owned by several suddenly benevolent wealthy people, via technology)—and two, that all inventory needs to be strictly accounted for: be registered in a central database, be readable by a scanner and easily ID’ed, and be managed by AI, using the latest “science.” The goal is to count and then efficiently manage and control all resources, including people, on an unprecedented scale, with unprecedented digital anxiety and precision—all while the masters keep indulging, enjoying vast patches of conserved nature, free of unnecessary sovereign peasants and their unpredictability.

​Steve Kirsch:  ​The narrative is falling apart, piece by piece
​  ​The vaccines make you more likely to get COVID: It was supposed to make things better, but we’re basically mandating you get a shot that makes you more likely to get infected... UK Government Data proves the Covid-19 Vaccines DOUBLE your chances of catching Covid-19​.
​  ​The vaccines aren’t safe: I’m now hearing a lot from prominent formerly pro-vax docs that they are turning on the vaccine.​..
  ​Cloth masks don’t work: ​(nor do surgical masks) ​The CDC finally admits that cloth masks that they said worked before and that everyone wore  don’t actually work.​..
​  ​Kids shouldn’t have boosters shots: Top WHO scientist finally admits that kids shouldn’t get boosted!!!! Yet the US colleges and universities aren’t going to back off.​..
​  Remdesivir is killing patients, not saving them: RDV is standard operating procedure in the US, but everyone I talk to says it doesn’t work and is much more likely to kill patients than save them...[Remdesivir might work in the first week, since it impairs viral replication, but nobody gets sick enough to hospitalize in the first week. Hospitalization occurs in the second week, the inflammatory phase, where the immune response to the (already decreasing) virus wreaks havoc.]
  ​Social distancing doesn’t work: The MIT study came out in April, 2021 that showed social distancing makes no difference.

​  The breaking down of this particular narrative entry to the world of owning nothing and living (as permitted) through a smartphone ap​, does not mean that goal is abandoned by the billionaires, who did very well in the past 2 years. ( may have noticed.) They have consolidated ownership at their level, and reduced ownership of small businesses which have gone bankrupt. This is a new high water mark of wealth disparity in our world. 
  I see the next on-ramp to the Build Back Better expressway as being free-digital-currency in the next financial crisis. The carrot. 
"Sure you need some help right now. Take this free electronic money and pay on your credit card, mortgage and car."   You see where that goes.

  mRNA gene-insertion technology, "the vaccine", has not gone away, and the fatal side effects are being brushed under the bulging rug by corporate media and governments, because there is a lot of liability to go around, if everybody realizes how very bad the body count and medical consequences are. All cause mortality is up, up, up...  I believe we can openly address this ongoing threat. There is some hope to publicly address the global mass poisoning, some hope...

​  ​Moderna will have an Omicron-specific vaccine as early as March​  (ha, ha, too late), and they won’t be the only ones. The compliant triple jabbed can look forward to having their fully vaccinated status revoked once again... 
​  ​Moderna are working in close collaboration with “Dr. Fauci’s team” and with public health experts to develop an annual combined mRNA flu, RSV and Corona vaccine to reduce “compliance issues.” 
​  ​The industry more broadly has targeted about 20 pathogens for vaccine development, from Zika to Nipah, with a view towards being able to rapidly deploy mRNA vaccines against future virus threats.  
​  ​The ​"​vaccinators​"​ are a great sword of Damocles over our heads. As I type this, they are scouring the earth for the novel pathogens their products require, and they, together with their bureaucratic and academic allies, will do their level best to call into being new pandemic scares and vaccination campaigns whenever possible – perhaps every flu season.

​CJ Hopkins, The Last Days of the Covidian Cult
​  ​This isn’t going to be pretty, folks. The downfall of a death cult rarely is. There is going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth, incoherent fanatical jabbering, mass deleting of embarrassing tweets. There’s going to be a veritable tsunami of desperate rationalizing, strenuous denying, shameless blame-shifting, and other forms of ass-covering, as suddenly former Covidian Cult members make a last-minute break for the jungle before the fully-vaxxed-and-boosted “Safe and Effective Kool-Aid” servers get to them.
​  ​Yes, that’s right, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the official Covid narrative is finally falling apart, or is being hastily disassembled, or historically revised, right before our eyes. The “experts” and “authorities” are finally acknowledging that the “Covid deaths” and “hospitalization” statistics are artificially inflated and totally unreliable (which they have been from the very beginning), and they are admitting that their miracle “vaccines” don’t work (unless you change the definition of the word “vaccine”), and that they have killed a few people, or maybe more than a few people, and that lockdowns were probably “a serious mistake.”​ ...
​  It was always mostly just a matter of time. As Klaus Schwab said, “the pandemic represent[ed] a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.” ...
​  It isn’t over, but that window is closing, and our world has not been “reimagined” and “reset,” not irrevocably, not just yet. Clearly, GloboCap underestimated the potential resistance to the Great Reset, and the time it would take to crush that resistance. And now the clock is running down, and the resistance isn’t crushed … on the contrary, it is growing. And there is nothing GloboCap can do to stop it, other than go openly totalitarian, which it can’t, as that would be suicidal. 
[The carrot, CJ, the CARROT]​  
​  ​“New Normal totalitarianism — and any global-capitalist form of totalitarianism — cannot display itself as totalitarianism, or even authoritarianism. It cannot acknowledge its political nature. In order to exist, it must not exist. Above all, it must erase its violence (the violence that all politics ultimately comes down to) and appear to us as an essentially beneficent response to a legitimate ‘global health crisis’ …”
​  I don’t know what is going to happen. I’m not an oracle. I’m just a satirist. But we are getting dangerously close to the point where GloboCap will need to go full-blown fascist if they want to finish what they started. If that happens, things are going to get very ugly. I know, things are already ugly, but I’m talking a whole different kind of ugly. Think Jonestown, or Hitler’s final days in the bunker, or the last few months of the Manson Family.​  [CJ lives in Germany. It's bad in Germany.]

Western governments drop plans to cut Russia off from SWIFT – media​ 
​  ​German newspaper Handelsblatt has reported that Western leaders have ruled out the possibility of disconnecting Russia from the global banking interchange SWIFT. However, the US government has contradicted the assertion.
​  ​“No option is off the table,” a spokesperson for Washington's National Security Council told reporters on Monday. 
​  ​The denial comes after Handelsblatt claimed that the US had, in fact, given up on the threat of removing Russia from SWIFT in talks with the German government. If the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication cuts ties with Russian banks, Germany would have no way of paying Moscow for its natural gas contracts.

Flouting Sanctions, Iran Says Oil Sales Have Enjoyed "Staggering" Rise Over Past Year

Energy analyst, Art Berman, talks about the ill-planned "trip to Abilene" for a mediocre meal, which nobody really wanted, but everybody went along for.
  Population is the currency of evolution. Growth is not some frivolous, uniquely human behavior. There seems to be a genetic imperative for all species to increase their numbers. Those with the best access to highly productive sources of energy grow the most. Those that are able to adapt with larger populations live and those that are not become extinct.
​  ​Energy is central. Any movement, activity or event in nature requires energy. Energy is and always will be the currency of life.​..​
​  ​Most people think that the economy runs on money. It doesn’t. It runs on work which requires energy. The economy runs on energy. Energy is the economy. Oil is the primary source of energy today therefore, oil is the economy...
​  ​The world has used half (51%) of all the oil ever produced in just the last 25 years...
​  ​This is overshoot and population growth is the root cause. Climate change is just collateral damage.​..
​  ​Guidelines were agreed upon to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 at the recent COP26 meeting but no government agreed to cut its economic growth or population. In the most optimistic outcome, therefore, we will continue to overshoot earth’s ecosystem using more renewable and less fossil energy inputs.
​  ​U.S. envoy John Kerry’s comments are worth considering:
  ​“I’m told by scientists that 50% of the reductions we have to make (to get to near zero emissions) by 2050 or 2045 are going to come from technologies we don’t yet have.”
We’ve agreed to do something that’s impossible without a miracle.

​The Archdruid, John Michael Greer​ : The Unmanageable Future
​  ​Christopher Columbus, when he set sail on the first of his voyages across the Atlantic, brought with him a copy of The Travels of Sir John Mandeville, a fraudulent medieval travelogue that claimed to recount a journey east to the Earthly Paradise across a wholly imaginary Asia, packed full of places and peoples that never existed. Columbus’ eager attention to that volume seems to have played a significant role in keeping him hopelessly confused about the difference between the Asia of his dreams and the place where he’d actually arrived.  It’s a story more than usually relevant today, because most people nowadays are equipped with comparable misinformation for their journey into the future, and are going to end up just as disoriented as Columbus.​..
​...Yet there’s another delusion, subtler but even more misleading, that pervades current notions about the future and promises an even more awkward collision with unwelcome realities.
​  That delusion? The notion that we can decide what future we’re going to get, and get it.​..
​  ​Politicians and pundits are always confidently predicting this or that future, while think tanks earnestly churn out reports on how to get to one future or how to avoid another. It’s not just Klaus Schwab and his well-paid flunkeys at the World Economic Forum, chattering away about their Orwellian plans for a Great Reset; with embarrassingly few exceptions, from the far left to the far right, everyone’s got a plan for the future, and acts as though all we have to do is adopt the plan and work hard, and everything will fall into place.
  What’s missing in this picture is any willingness to compare that rhetoric to reality and see how well it performs.​ (No time for that, right?)

COVID Vaccine Causes Suicide

 Not Covered,

This life insurance case in France sets an important precedent for the life insurance companies of the world, and those holding their policies.  
  Life insurer refuses to cover vaccine death
​  ​Although vaccination is recognized as the cause of death by doctors and the insurance company, it has refused to pay out. The reason is because the side effects of the Corona jabs are known and published. They argue that the deceased took part in an experiment at his own risk. Covid-19 in itself is not classed as a “critical illness”.
​  ​According to the company, an experimental vaccination resulting in death is like suicide​...
​  ​The court allegedly justified its ruling as follows: “The side effects of the experimental vaccine are published and the deceased could not claim to have known nothing about it when he voluntarily took the vaccine. There is no law or mandate in France that compelled him to be vaccinated. Hence his death is essentially suicide.” ​ ​Since suicide is not covered by the policy from the outset, the insurance refuses to budge.

​ ​It's pretty clear that the placebo patients were doing way better until they were "unblinded" and most of them got the Pfizer vaccine.  Take a look.
Pfizer 6 Month Data Shows COVID Shots May “Cause More Illness than They Prevent”: Canadian Doctors and Scientists
​  ​An alliance of more than 500 independent Canadian doctors, professors, scientists and health care practitioners have come together to form the Canadian COVID Care Alliance. Throughout this pandemic they’ve been committed to providing an evidence-based approach with regards to informing the Canadian public about all things COVID.
​  ​Their list of representatives include PhDs in Immunogenetics, Immunology, Molecular Virology, Viral Immunology, Pharmacology, Biomedical Research, Biochemistry, Bioanalytics, practicing family doctors, MDs and more.
​  ​The alliance recently released a PDF showing that, according to them, the Pfizer 6 month data shows that their COVID inoculations “cause more illness than they prevent.” The PDF is called “The Pfizer Inoculations For COVID-19: More Harm Than Good”

But it can't be caused by the vaccines, masks, or swabs since all are "safe and effective" according to the CDC. My experts think it is all 3. Infectious disease docs say nothing is wrong, ignore it.

​Divisions this severe do not last forever.​ Some consensus must be reached. Americans traditionally favor individual freedoms.
​  ​A new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of voters favor President Joe Biden’s plan to impose a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the employees of large companies and government agencies. That includes 33% who Strongly Favor the mandate. Forty-eight percent (48%) are opposed to Biden’s vaccine mandate, including 40% who Strongly Oppose the mandate.
​  ​Voters are similarly divided over the federal government’s top COVID-19 expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci. Forty-five percent (45%) view Fauci favorably, including 28% who have a Very Favorable impression of him. Forty-eight percent (48%) have an unfavorable impression of Fauci, including 34% who have a Very Unfavorable view of him.
​  ​The even split among voters is the result of deep partisan divisions. While 78% of Democratic voters support the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate plan, only 22% of Republicans and 41% of voters not affiliated with either major party support the vaccine mandate. And many Democrats would support even harsher measures, including fines for Americans who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine and criminal punishment for vaccine critics.

​It was a closed meeting, but nobody denies he said this.  
Mass General Expert Predicts: No Boosters. Normal Life. We Can Move on From Covid
​  ​The director of global infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital is predicting what was unthinkable less than a month ago: The end of the pandemic.
​  ​Dr. Edward Ryan made stunning and encouraging comments on the Omicron variant that give hope for a return to normalcy. Among these: Omicron will make boosters unnecessary. The covid virus will join the ranks of the “common cold.” And the latest wave will enter “clean up mode” shortly.
​  “We are fighting the last war with COVID and should be pivoting back to normal life,” the summary of Dr. Ryan’s comments states. “Spring/Summer will be really nice!”

​Dr. Kory feels hopeful about this prediction:
​  Woke up last Sunday to a text forwarded to me by my wife. It was a series of notes taken by a good friend of hers which summarized the main points heard on a conference call with the International Head of Infectious Disease at Massachusetts General Hospital (i.e. “Haavaad”)...

Junior academics cited by "Forbes", AP, Reuters and "The Independent" have not done their homework  
 Today in “factchecking the factcheckers”, junior academics cited by Forbes, Associated Press, Reuters and The Independent have just not done their homework concerning the work of Professor Dr. Mattias Desmet of the University of Ghent in Belgum. All I can say about this is that I hope that their naive, ignorant, grandstanding statements to the press are brought up during their future Academic Tenure and Advancement reviews

​"The Bee"  ​Supreme Court Sets Dangerous Precedent Of Letting The American People Make Medical Decisions For Themselves
​  ​U.S.—The SCOTUS has struck down Biden’s vaccine mandates on the grounds that they are unconstitutional. Experts say this sets a dangerous precedent of letting individuals make their own medical decisions.

  The U.S. and Ukraine are secretly preparing for all-out war while advancing propaganda to make it appear that Russia is the aggressor...
​ In early December, the water of the Severdonetsk River—which supplies more than 90% of the municipal tap water to all major cities of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in eastern Ukraine (as well as major cities of Donetsk Oblast under Ukrainian control)—was contaminated by chemical and biological agents from sources in Kharkov and Slavyansk.
​  ​This contamination—augmented by “fracking” in the areas of Donetsk Oblast under Ukrainian control—has resulted in the tap water of the DPR being unsuitable for cooking or drinking.
​  ​Press Secretary of the DPR Defense Ministry Eduard Basurin confirmed that Ukraine had received several batches of toxic substances, botulinum toxin and an antidote to it from the U.S.
​  ​He stated:
​  ​Various types of chemical weapons were brought to Ukraine. In October, one of the shipments contained an antidote against botulinum toxin. In November, the chemical itself was delivered. It can be used with grenade launchers. The weight is small. It can be dropped from drones, and Ukraine has been using shock drones all the time lately.
​  ​In addition, “Another container weighing 300 kilograms was delivered to Mariupol by sea, where there was a chemical warfare agent—dibenzoxazepine, which is used in the form of an aerosol.”​   
("Dibenzoxazepine" is a ​unique class of antipsychotic agents. I'm not sure what the military application would be.)
​  ​In the southern sector of the Front, near Mariupol, citizens of the frontline village Granitnoye have reported Ukrainian soldiers in full chemical/biological protective suits unloading containers.​..

​Charles Hugh Smith, Politics Is Dead; Here's What Killed It.​
​  ​Representational democracy--a.k.a. politics as a solution to social and economic problems--has passed away. It did not die a natural death. Politics developed a cancer very early in life (circa the early 1800s), caused by wealth outweighing public opinion. This cancer spread slowly but metastasized in the past few decades, spreading to every nook and cranny of our society and economy as "democracy" devolved into an invitation-only auction of elections and political favors.​..
1. The Federal Reserve transferred trillions of dollars of unearned wealth into the feeding troughs of the super-wealthy and corporations, vastly increasing the wealth the top 0.01% had to buy elections and favors...
2. The Supreme Court betrayed the nation's representative democracy by labeling corporations buying elections and political favors a form of "free speech."...
3. The two political parties betrayed their traditional voter bases to kneel at the altar of corporate / elite wealth, wealth which bought elections and political favors...  just as the Democratic Party tossed the working class overboard to the sharks, the Republican Party walked small business off the gangplank right into the voracious jaws of cartels and globalized, financialized corporate sharks.
​  To cloak their betrayal and treachery, the parties have pursued a divide-and-conquer distraction game, pushing half the nation into one-size-fits-all "enemies lists" with labels that have lost all meaning other than as means to promote divisiveness and rancor: Liberal and Conservative, socialist and capitalist, etc.
