Listening to Stories,
WEF Young Global Leader of yesteryear, (emperor) Justinian Trudeau had a 16% approval rating last week before he brought in special police units to teach Canadian Freedom Convoy protesters how to get beaten up, arrested, bashed in the head and have their trucks confiscated after breaking the windows.
I'm just watching from afar as I try to do what is necessary in my own life to adapt to changes and prepare for worse.
I think a lot of people could describe themselves that way. It seems to me that Trudeau has lost control of the "Noble Lie", the societal narrative that allows for a society to work together in unison. It looks like he has no "plan-b".
Maybe the owners are working feverishly on a plan-b that throws Justin under the truck/bus, ... maybe.
Maybe the owners can't agree on a control-narrative. Maybe they are divided into globalist and nationalist camps. A war is how this is usually worked out, but a big-enough "conventional war" would ignite a global nuclear war (mos' prob'ly...), and the "deciders" might get fried, so even they have "skin in that game".
This is a tough spot for all of us, and since the western financial economy is breaking down, due to long years of parasitic extractions and promising future wealth which can never exist, there is every reason to expect a decade of difficulty as we all work to cobble-together some kind of economy to meet our needs and employ our talents in serving each other.
I think the globalists are barking up the wrong tree, myself, that smaller systems have the efficiency advantage, without as many layers of hierarchy and extraction, and decision-making that favors extraction over efficient production and distribution of the necessities of life.
Narratives imposed by elites fail when people can't get the necessities of life. French and American and Bolshevik revolutions, China's Cultural Revolution, the collapse of the USSR, Nazi Germany and Pol Pot's Cambodia all come to mind.
The British Empire faded away less dramatically, but it did have more support from a working western international economic system which was growing quite well at the time.
The Post WW-2 "social contract" in the western world has already been violated and the promised retirement security has already been embezzled and reinvested in other accounts. Those accounts will also fail to produce returns when the economy fails, which it (yet again) appears poised to do. I'm working to secure some basic needs for food, shelter and non-violent surroundings for myself, Jenny, and our adult "children" if they need to bolt. There were no electrical sockets for Yoakum, Victoria or Halletsville Friday, so the electricians did not install them in the upstairs. I managed to find some at higher cost Sunday, so they can go in today.
I feel fortunate every time I find something we need to proceed with the project, because I don't expect to "go back to usual".
The Toronto Sun has the (now infamous) picture of police horses trampling an elderly lady and her walker. (The report that she died was sensational, but not factual)
Have you ever been stepped upon, even lightly, by a horse. Man, it hurts for a long time. It does damage. I was 15 when a Shetland pony(Tammy) trod on my foot.
I couldn't run for weeks.

It was all fun and games making Trudeau/Hitler memes until yesterday when Trudeau’s enforcers on horseback trampled an old woman. https://tomluongo.me/2022/02/19/trampling-the-truckers-the-great-reset-becomes-the-great-awakening/Ontario Government Employee Fired Over $100 Contribution To Freedom Convoy
A man with any sense of decency does not send men on horseback into a crowd. The only thing worse than that are the people commenting on this saying some variation of ‘well, she deserved it.’
Yes, she could have gone home.
Yes, she could have gotten the clot-shot.
Yes, she could have just complied with whatever Justin Trudeau told her what her morality was.
But Trudeau could have chosen differently as well. As opposed to acting like a scared little boy worried about facing public ridicule, he could have sacked up and met with the protesters.
The communications director for the Ontario ministry responsible for enforcing the law was fired this week after her $100 donation to the Freedom Convoy was revealed in the hack of donors to a GiveSendGo campaign. (Presentable as evidence in a court of law?)
I personally believe that one is only "responsible to God" for one's own actions and intentions, though those actions may well harm others.
I also think "God" has instituted spiritual rules of cause-and-effect, as automatic as gravity, and does not need to get angry, but that's my mental model.
Canadian clergy rebuke Trudeau for invoking Emergencies Act, other 'tyrannical actions'The clergy warned Trudeau is dividing Canada and 'exposing this government and people to the judgment of God'
This will fix it and it's bound to be legal in an emergency...
Ottawa mayor wants to sell confiscated Freedom Convoy trucks
Even a little-bit of buy-in from more than half of Americns would help "our government" a lot right now... Can Putin please "play ball" a little bit? Everything about the Russia invasion of Ukraine has to be increasingly imminent, horrible and loomingly catastrophic for the planet, so that when it doesn’t happen the glorious victory for Dear Leader Biden can be proclaimed and amplified from the mountaintops...
Yes, let the church bells ring from the mountains as Ronald Reagan’s 1986 Helsinki summit with Michael Gorbachev has now been eclipsed in strategic geopolitical importance.
France and the United States jointly announce that the brilliant and incredibly strategic Joe Biden, and the dastardly villain of all things villainous, Vladimir Putin, will meet and come to an incredibly intense agreement over the Ukraine invasion that Putin never planned.
Together both leaders will save the world from a war that Putin never intended to participate in.
Dmitry Orlov has maintained for a year that Russian interests in Ukraine are best served by not invading, but by evacuating ethnic Russians into Russia when there are offensives into Donetsk and Luhansk by the Ukrainian army. Russia does not have to "own" the poisoned and destroyed pill, which the US/NATO and EU have been preparing, and do not want to swallow, either. Russia already has a lot of the young, productive workers, and none of the geriatric Chernobyl-style nuclear reactors to clean up. Russia triple wins by staying out.
(Russia can bombard the Ukrainian army, jam military communications, and shoot down the Ukrainian air force from Russia, if necessary.)
Abusers always accuse their victims of what they, themselves are doing...
Ukraine - Who Is Firing At Whom And Who Is Lying About It?
The concentration of impacts on the left of the above picture is a bit south-east of Svitlodarsk. Artillery rounds landed on both sides of the line of control but the vast majority of them exploded on the Donbas side. The same can be said for the impacts north-east of Luhansk. On Thursday both of these areas were also the aim of artillery concentrations. These are likely crossing points through which the Ukraine military plans to direct its upcoming attack.
Update(9:48amET): Separatist leader Denis Pushilin has issued a formal request to President Vladimir Putin calling on Russia to recognize the Donetsk People's Republic. The Luhansk republic has simultaneously published the same request, at a moment Putin is holding an urgent session of the Russian Security Council. This followed quickly on the heels of what Russia's southern command said was a serious attempt of Ukrainian armored vehicles to breach its
(Russia's) border, that resulted in five Ukrainians killed.
However, the Ukrainian government and army rejected the entirety of the allegations as "fake news" - rejecting that its forces are even in the area where it's said to have occurred (though without addressing the possibility that they could have been irregular forces). But Russia's FSB Director Bortnikov Russian responding by saying the Russian military "destroyed Ukrainian forces that tried to infiltrate the border and took one Ukrainian POW" - thus doubling down on the claims.
Russia Today says European gas supplies for heat and electricity are low, but that Russia is meeting all contractual obligations. (Europe bought cheap on the spot market, which as become expensive, and made fewer long term contracts, which is now an expensive way to buy gas.) European people and industry will get hurt, and people can be expected to die, if a scenario is played where the EU/NATO stop buying Russian gas. This is obvious, right?
This is "conventional wisdom". The State Department leaks to The New York Times. Paul Craig Roberts.
The Washington Post has always been a CIA asset. The CIA used the Washington Post to orchestrate the Watergate narrative used to drive President Nixon out of office.
The Winter of Our Discontent: Hubris is Ascendant , Charles Hugh Smith We're constantly assured everything's on the mend but this trying-too-hard marketing has the opposite effect: it confirms everything's unraveling. We're told inflation is transitory (you mean like terminal cancer is "transitory"?), the economy is opening up and growing smartly.
None of this is remotely persuasive. OK, we get it: the pandemic shutdown crushed supply chains and demand, and then trillions of dollars, yen, yuan and euros of monetary and fiscal stimulus boosted pent-up demand which then snarled creaky supply chains. Inflation is transitory because the effects of this massive stimulus is temporary and the global supply snarls will all be unkinked shortly.
But this happy story only accounts for a thin wafer of global supply issues. Yes, a few items may be restored to low-cost production and shipping, but all this rah-rah ignores the primary dynamics: all the cheap, easy-to-get resources have been extracted and consumed, and labor costs, crushed for the past 45 years, have reversed: after being stripmined by capital for the past 45 years, labor is now demanding some modest restoration of decades of diminished purchasing power, not just in the U.S. but in China and other production nodes in global supply chains.
Capital's screams of agony are laughable, as the top tier of capital has added trillions in wealth at the expense of the bottom 99.5%. The wealth of the few has metastasized into hyper-wealth--$100 million yachts and villas barely scratch the surface of the billions gained by gaming financialization and the Federal Reserve's financial fentanyl.
Although nobody benefiting from the Fed's financial fentanyl seems to have noticed, hyper-wealth has extinguished democracy and destabilized the economy and society. With trillions gushing into the wealthiest families and corporate insiders, "democracy" has been reduced to an invitation-only auction of political favors.

Scotland has announced that they will no longer release this data to the public because "it is being misrepresented by anti-vaxxers". Most updated Public Health Scotland COVID-19 & Winter Statistical Report As at 14 February 2022 Publication date: 16 February 2022
page 37, Table 13: PCR-confirmed COVID-19 age-standardised case rate per 100,000 individuals by vaccine status, seven-day rolling average from 15 January 2022 to 11 February 2022
What do we see below as to cases? We see clearly that the cases among the vaccinated are far higher than the unvaccinated and the double vaccinated are highest...
What do we see as to hospitalizations?
Double vaccinated are at greatest risk...
What do we see as to deaths? We see: unvaccinated: we see across Jan up to Feb 4th, that double and triple vaccinated incurred most deaths, for a total of 61 in unvaccinated to 415 in the vaccinated; 476 deaths in all across this 4 week period with 87% occurring in the vaccinated; thats right, I wrote that, near 90% of deaths are in the vaccinated in Scotland with a massive spike in the triple vaccinated (boosted).

Pluto returns to America tomorrow, Tuesday, after last visiting in 1776.
(I don't believe in astrology, but who could pass this up? I have a dentist's appointment...) Nothing says a cosmic rebirth like enigmatic Pluto, the power-hungry dwarf planet that symbolizes transformation and renewal. According to the stars, the United States is finally getting a spiritual makeover with its first-ever Pluto Return on Feb. 22, 2022. Astrologically, a Pluto return is when the heavenly body returns to the same position in a birth chart where it was when the chart began. It happens around every 248 years, meaning this is the Pluto return in the United States since the country was founded in 1776.
“Pluto rules death and rebirth, influencing the end and beginning of new karmic cycles. It also rules things like interpersonal skills, power struggles, and shows the source of your personal power. This planet is the portal through which your spiritual and shadow energy is transformed and released into the exterior world,” astrologer Lauren Ash tells Bustle.

Mornin' John, I think you would be interested in these couple of vids if you haven't already seen them or some such similar, you may already be one in the eyes of your government!ReplyDelete
And for crying out loud stop telling the truth or you will be one for sure. This one I posted yesterday on TAE.
Finally as if this is news but you may find some new names to watch.
Thanks Red, I am bound to be marked at some level of AI discomfort. My bcc email posts go to people's trash a lot, and they are surprised to find that. It started happening in the 2016 primaries. My emails got blocked until 3 days after the election. Similar in 2018.Delete
Its the reason I put it in the blog format, also, so it could be accessible if you looked.
Anybody who speaks against the crumbling official narrative gets censored nd disparaged, and sometimes fired if unvaxxed...
It is likely to get worse before it gets better, if history rhymes again.
