Turning The Tables

Pulling Back Curtains,

Ed Curtain puts a face on perspective, as the Wars Against Terror come home to turn terrorized Americans against each other. (Let's don't, ok?) Thanks Jeremy.
​  ​The executive director of the U.S. cover storythe fictional 9/11 Commission Report – was Philip Zelikow, who controlled and shaped the report from start to finish.
​  ​It is even less well known that Zelikow, a professor at the University of Virginia, was closely associated with Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush, Dickey Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Brent Scowcroft, et al. and had served in various key intelligence positions in both the George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush administrations. In 2011 President Obama named him to his President’s Intelligence Advisory Board as befits bi-partisan elite rule and coverup compensation across political parties.
  Perhaps ​it’s unknown or just forgotten that The Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Commission repeatedly called for Zelikow’s removal, claiming that his appointment made a farce of the claim that the Commission was independent.
​  ​Zelikow said that for the Commission to consider alternative theories to the government’s claims about Osama bin Laden was akin to whacking moles.  This is the man, who at the request of his colleague Condoleezza Rice, became the primary author of (NSS 2002) The National Security Strategy of the United States of America, that declared that the U.S. would no longer abide by international law but was adopting a policy of preemptive war, as declared by George W. Bush at West Point in June 2002.​...
...The Biden administration has directed its resources inward toward domestic “terrorists”: that is, anyone who disagrees with its policies.  This is especially aimed at those who question the COVID-19 story.​ 
​  Now Zelikow has been named to head a COVID Commission Planning Group based at the University of Virginia that is said to prepare the way for a National COVID Commission.​... Zelikow, a member of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Development Program Advisory Panel, will lead the group that will work in conjunction with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security at the Bloomberg School of Public Health.​..
 Zelikow’s involvement, among other things, suggests we are in the second phase of a long war of terror waged with two weapons – military and medical – whose propaganda messaging is carried out by the corporate mainstream media in the pursuit of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset.​..
  Please do not recall The Nuremberg Code.  Especially number 7: “Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability or death.” (my emphasis)
“Now is the time to just do what you are told,” as Anthony Fauci so benevolently declared.​..
​  ​We are now in a long war with two faces.  As with the one justified by the mass murders of September 11, 2001, this viral one isn’t going away.
Matt Taibbi follows up with what appears to be the complete victory of the deep state, upon obtaining ownership of the free-press, or imprisoning those not-for-sale:
​  ​Fast forward seven years. Julian Assange is behind bars, and may die there. Snowden is in exile in Russia. Brennan, Clapper, and Hayden have been rehabilitated and are all paid contributors to either MSNBC or CNN, part of a wave of intelligence officers who’ve flooded the airwaves and op-ed pages in recent years, including the FBI’s Asha Rangappa, Clint Watts, Josh Campbell, former counterintelligence chief Frank Figliuzzi and former deputy director Andrew McCabe, the CIA’s John Sipher, Phil Mudd, Ned Price, and many others...
​  ​After the Capitol riots of January 6th, the War on Terror came home, and “domestic extremists” stepped into the role enemy combatants played before. George Bush once launched an all-out campaign to pacify any safe haven for trrrsts, promising to “smoke ‘em out of their holes.” The new campaign is aimed at stamping out areas for surveillance-proof communication​*​, which CNN security analyst and former DHS official Juliette Kayyem described as any online network “that lets [domestic extremists] talk amongst themselves.”​   
(*Formerly, "freedom of speech")
​  ​Reporters pledged assistance, snooping for evidence of wrongness in digital rather than geographical “hidey holes.”

​I'm sure things can't be as bleak as all that... can they?   Jim Kunstler on "Hyper Complexity"
​  ​Looks like The New York Times will have to recalibrate its president-o-meter. For five months they’ve been styling Joe Biden as the reincarnation of FDR, but he’s looking more and more like the second coming of Millard Fillmore — who came to leadership of the dominant Whig Party at exactly the moment it flew up the wazoo of history and vanished, ushering in a civil war.
​  ​FDR, you remember, was faced with a momentous systems failure, a crisis we came to call the Great Depression. I’m not sure we actually learned the lesson of that, despite thousands of books and PhD dissertations on the subject. The lesson: financial systems tend to expand and complexify at a more rapid rate than the larger economic systems of which they are a component. Their abstract operations seek to hide risk in hyper-complexity until hazard comes a’callin’ and then you discover that the actual money​*​ is not there.​    
(*whatever that is)
​  ​The difference then (1929 – 1941) was that the greater US economy was fully outfitted for industrial production when its finance sector blew up. There was something solid underneath all that financial abstraction. We were all set up to manufacture products of value, many of them based on inventions developed here: cars, movies, airplanes, radios, you-name-it, new and exciting things that people wanted to buy. Our factories were all pretty much up-to-date and state-of-the-art then, too. Our oil supply, including the industry that pumped it out of the ground and moved it from points A to B, was the envy of the world. We had raw materials up the ying-yang. The whole kit was humming magnificently when Wall Street blew up, and next thing you know unemployment goes to twenty-five percent and nobody has any money and the luckless are building cardboard shanties in Central Park.​..
​  Now along comes the curious case of the Colonial Pipeline shutdown. It’s especially interesting because the pipeline itself, while big (5,500 miles long, from refineries in Texas clear up to gas stations in New York), is itself not that complicated. It’s a tube that a few volatile liquids move through: gasoline, aviation fuel, diesel oil. It has a bunch of valves to regulate the flows of these liquids. Plus, some storage tank-farms. The valves are computerized.​ ​[Ack, internet accessible!] ​That seems to be the problem. There was no physical damage to the pipeline and its components. The software that runs it got hacked, reportedly a “ransom-ware” sting, where unknown actors get control of the software and won’t relinquish it unless a whole lot of cash gets forked over by some non-traceable electronic means of transfer.​..
​  ​The Colonial Pipeline is easy-peasy compared to the financial system and the electric grid. If the first one gets hacked, the nation’s nominal wealth might disappear (yours included), and, anyway, the financial system itself is not just enormous and hyper-complex, but much of its complexity conceals the massive misrepresentation of vaporous entities for “money” and any stoppage of the flows of that “money,” and things purporting to derive from it, will reveal the black hole at the center of all that activity. Hear that giant sucking sound? That was your livelihood, your pension, and your legacy rushing by en route to zero.
​  ​The electric grid is sometimes referred to as “the biggest machine in the world.” Unlike the financial system, it’s not largely stoked on hyper-complex dishonesty, it’s just really old, and jerry-rigged, and held together with duct-tape and baling wire.​..
​  ​Taking down the grid would be, effectively, the end of civilization, at least for a while, maybe a long while, maybe for good.
​  The various voting systems that states such as Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan employ are child’s play compared to those monsters. And the funny part is: there was no good reason to over-complexify them except to queer elections. Dominion machines and Smartmatic software were hardly needed to tally votes and only invited opportunity to cheat.​..
​  It’s too late to simplify any of it. We’ve just got to roll with it, until it stops rolling.

​Hammering one important point about infrastructure vulnerability to cyber-attack:​
You do not connect anything that has access to SCADA, that is, control systems, to the Internet.  Period.  I don't care how.  I don't why.  I don't care what.  You don't do it.  End of discussion.
  Oh, but that means the employees can't work from home!  Correct.
Sit in office, work on machine, machine has zero external connectivity, no USB ports or instantly alarms if you plug something into one, etc.
  Connections between facilities are encrypted over centrally-controlled infrastructure with regular audits. Nothing beyond the orbit of those devices connects to the sane and sanitary systems.  Period, end of discussion, no exceptions.

Charles Hugh Smith:
What the chattering class of apologists, toadies, lackeys, factotums and apparatchiks missed about the pandemic lockdown was the tidal change in perceptions of work and life enabled by a withdrawal from the deranging frenzy of work: once people had time to reflect on their lives, mortality, goals, identity and the soaring costs and dwindling rewards of their efforts to "get ahead" via slaving away in a dead-end job / career, the tune that began to haunt their subconscious ruminations was Johnny Paycheck's timeless classic, Take This Job And Shove It (2:31).
Whether anyone in the halls of power cares to notice or not, a mass withdrawal from the workforce is underway.

​Pepe Escobar on Ukrainian situation.   [Zelensky, Talk To Putin!]
​  ​Leaked info on the closed-door meeting between Blinken and Comedian-in-Charge Zelensky is no less than incandescent. Blinken seemed to have read a no holds barred riot act.
​  ​Here are the guidelines. All Ukrainian state corporations must be controlled by the proverbial “foreign interests”. So board majorities must be either foreign or 5th columnists. The entire anti-corruption vertical drive must also be foreign-controlled. Same for the judicial system.
Andriy Kobolyev – an American asset – must be reinstated as head of Naftogaz. Zelensky moved mountains to get rid of Kobolyev.
  ​Blinken demanded a massive push against every Ukrainian oligarch, so that huge chunks of Ukrainian economy are transferred to – who else – foreigners. Same for land privatization.
​  ​Somewhat hilariously, Blinken warned that Russian troops might invade Ukraine. In this case, Zelensky can count only on huge political assistance, not military. So Zelensky in fact was ordered to stop asking to join NATO and cease provoking Russia, as President Putin, who already drew red lines, could make a “drastic decision”.
​  Blinken demanded that American assets should be untouchable by Ukrainian law, and named honored figures of civil society. Maidan cookie distributor Victoria “F**k the EU” Nuland, also in the room, drew up a list of The Untouchables, and Blinken met with them separately.
​  ​Finally, the giant ghost hanging over the whole trip to Kiev had to make itself known. In practice, Zelensky was invited to turn in everyone in Ukraine who helped bring information about Hunter Biden to the media via Rudolph Giuliani.

Eric Claptin wishes he had known more, and also had the fortitude and support to not "get the jab".  Thanks Bill and Jeremy.
  In February this year, before I learned about the nature of the vaccines, (and being 76 with emphysema) I was in the avant garde. I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days, I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one...
  About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again, (I suffer with peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle.) But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone....
  Then I met a member of this group, who counselled me to be careful and to have a look at what goes on with you guys...
I felt like a veil had been lifted, that I was no longer alone, that it was okay, in fact essential, to hold on to my intuition and follow my heart...
  I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know...

Uttar Pradesh government says early use of Ivermectin helped to keep positivity, deaths low​    Thanks Jeremy.
Claiming that timely introduction of Ivermectin since the first wave has helped the state maintain a relatively low positivity rate despite in its high population density.

​  ​A year after the country’s first Covid-19 cluster, with 5 cases, was reported in Agra district, the Uttar Pradesh government has claimed that it was the first state to have introduced a large-scale “prophylactic and therapeutic” use of Ivermectin and added that the drug helped the state to maintain a lower fatality and positivity rate as compared to other states.
​  ​Citing the results from Agra in the month of May and June last year, following which the use of Ivermectin, a medicine to treat parasitic ailments, along with Doxycycline was introduced as a protocol across the state for both prophylactic as well as treatment purposes, the state Health Department said it would conduct a controlled study once the second wave of the pandemic subsides.

Self-Reported Real-World Safety and Reactogenicity of COVID-19 Vaccines: A Vaccine Recipient Survey​  
​[​Thanks Jeremy. ​I also see more and worse reactions in patients who already had COVID. ​No evidence that a vaccine helps if you have had COVID​]​
​  ​An online survey was conducted to compare the safety, tolerability and reactogenicity of available COVID-19 vaccines in different recipient groups. This survey was launched in February 2021 and ran for 11 days. Recipients of a first COVID-19 vaccine dose ≥7 days prior to survey completion were eligible​...​
​  ​The survey was completed by 2002 respondents of whom 26.6% had a prior COVID-19 infection. A prior COVID-19 infection was associated with an increased risk of any side effect (risk ratio 1.08, 95% confidence intervals (1.05–1.11)), fever (2.24 (1.86–2.70)), breathlessness (2.05 (1.28–3.29)), flu-like illness (1.78 (1.51–2.10)), fatigue (1.34 (1.20–1.49)) and local reactions (1.10 (1.06–1.15)). It was also associated with an increased risk of severe side effects leading to hospital care (1.56 (1.14–2.12)). While mRNA vaccines were associated with a higher incidence of any side effect (1.06 (1.01–1.11)) compared with viral vector-based vaccines, these were generally milder (p < 0.001), mostly local reactions​..​
For the first time, our study links prior COVID-19 illness with an increased incidence of vaccination side effects and demonstrates that mRNA vaccines cause milder, less frequent systemic side effects but more local reactions.

Regularly Scheduled Programming

 Facing Coercion,

 Are you required to undergo "vaccination" for travel or employment?
Will you be prevented from traveling or working if not "vaccinated" with an unapproved (Emergency Use Authorization only) vaccine?
This article unpacks things quite well and is written by a group of COVID-19 treating physicians.

  One salient point is that actual risk from COVID is much much less than perceived risk, except in those made more vulnerable by low vitamin-D, inflammatory conditions (diabetes, obesity), arterial problems (diabetes, hypertension), and immunocompromised.
That risk grouping is important if the virus spreads past the nose/throat area, which it does in the 20% or so of people who do not have pre-existing crossover immunity, based on prior infections with other coronaviruses. Those people, and kids/teens with excellent innate-immunity in nose-throat, just stop it in the nose and throat.
That is a great majority of people, already.

Relative risk reduction sells much better than absolute risk reduction. Thanks Jeremy:
Yes, this means that in a trial group of "high risk and elderly people", 176 people must be "vaccinated" to prevent one case of mild illness, and 1370 people must be "vaccinated" to prevent one case of severe illness. 
Moderna vaccine is nearly 95% effective, but (number needed to vaccinate) NNTV = 176 to 1370
  As with the Pfizer vaccine news release, few numbers are provided, but we can approximate the absolute risk reduction for a vaccinated individual and the Number Needed To Vaccinate (NNTV): 
  There were 90 cases of Covid-19 illness in a placebo group of 15,000 (0.006) and 5 cases in a vaccine group of 15,000 (0.00033). 
This yields an absolute risk reduction of 0.00567 and NNTV = 176 (1/0.00567). 
  There were 11 severe illnesses, all in the placebo group, for an absolute risk reduction of 0.00073 and NNTV = 1370. 
So to prevent one severe illness 1370 individuals must be vaccinated. The other 1369 individuals are not saved from a severe illness, but are subject to vaccine adverse effects, whatever they may be and whenever we learn about them.
  How does this compare with other vaccines? Before the measles vaccine became available 90% of children in North America had measles by age 10. Two doses of the vaccine are about 95% effective, so a vaccinated individual’s risk is reduced by 0.855 (0.90 x 0.95), and the NNTV = 1.17 (1/0.855); this is extraordinarily effective

Another scholarly assessment:
  Based on data reported by the manufacturer for Pfzier/BioNTech vaccine BNT162b2, this critical appraisal shows: relative risk reduction, 95.1%; 95% CI, 90.0% to 97.6%; p = 0.016; absolute risk reduction, 0.7%; 95% CI, 0.59% to 0.83%; p < 0.000. For the Moderna vaccine mRNA-1273, the appraisal shows: relative risk reduction, 94.1%; 95% CI, 89.1% to 96.8%; p = 0.004; absolute risk reduction, 1.1%; 95% CI, 0.97% to 1.32%; p < 0.000. Unreported absolute risk reduction measures of 0.7% and 1.1% for the Pfzier/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, respectively, are very much lower than the reported relative risk reduction measures.

Jeremy also sent this half hour video explaining relative vs absolute risk-reduction, coming to the same conclusion.

  The "vaccines" cause you to have C-19 spike protein in your bloodstream, which is aggressive to the arterial lining, causing clots and pathology by itself, and damage lungs, as determined in 3 independent studies, summarized here::

Links to studies:

You really never want this spike-protein in your bloodstream.

If you can travel and work without subjecting yourself to this, it's much better.

I presume you take 5000 units/d vitamin-D, and may also get sun, so that is covered.
Buy 50 mg zinc gluconate tablets OTC and hold in case of illness/Dx. If you get symptomatic COVID, take one pill 3 times per day for 10 days.
I covered this in Treat Your Own COVID, in February, I think, email and blog.
The dose of ivermectin which many, many people are obtaining from Tractor Supply company (horse paste, apple flavored, tastes ok, according to friends) is the same for man and beast, a little under a gram of paste for 170#, i mg ivermectin per 11# body weight. 

The simplest way to take this dose is just once a day for 4 days straight, but I usually prescribe days 1, 2, 4 and 6.

In Goa, India, they are recommending ivermectin for everybody over 18, at a fixed dose. 
(The article seems to conflate prophylaxis and treatment. It is the treatment dose listed as 12 mg/d for 5 days).Thanks again, Jeremy.
‘Ivermectin to all above 18’: Goa approves new COVID-19 treatment protocol
​  ​"We are giving this as prophylaxis treatment, as a preventive. Ivermectin tablets will be given to all patients above 18 years at government health centres…This will be made available," said Rane.
​  ​He added: "Patients will be treated with Ivermectin 12mg for a period of five days. Expert panels from the UK, Italy, Spain and Japan, found a large, statistically significant reduction in mortality, time to recovery and viral clearance in COVID-19 patients treated with Ivermectin”.

  If you are mildly ill, you don't really need the 100 mg doxycycline twice per day for 10 days, which is still doxycycline, a broad spectrum antibiotic, but has special effects to reduce SARS-CoV-2 intracellular reproduction. 
It also has anti-inflammatory benefits. Cool molecule, doxycycline...

  Also, if more ill, feeling bad with fever and aches, exhaustion and so on, it may well be worth taking a whole adult aspirin per day for a month to reduce the widespread clotting that can happen. 
In my opinion, aspirin is not needed if symptoms remain mild.

  Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists looks at the Lab Origins of SARS-C0V-2. They focus on Wuhan Virology Lab, because gain-of-function research was officially moved out of the US to Wuhan in 2014, due to inherent dangers of breach of containment. (This assumes that research did not continue secretly at the US Bioweapons Research Center at Ft. Detrick Md. Safety procedures there are classified, as is the nature of any research.)
"Natural Emergence" is the big CYA conspiracy-theory.
  It cannot yet be stated that Shi did or did not generate SARS2 in her lab because her records have been sealed, but it seems she was certainly on the right track to have done so. “It is clear that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was systematically constructing novel chimeric coronaviruses and was assessing their ability to infect human cells and human-ACE2-expressing mice.”...
“And we have now found, you know, after 6 or 7 years of doing this, over 100 new SARS-related coronaviruses, very close to SARS,” Daszak says around minute 28 of the interview. “Some of them get into human cells in the lab, some of them can cause SARS disease in humanized mice models and are untreatable with therapeutic monoclonals and you can’t vaccinate against them with a vaccine..."
  “The idea that this virus escaped from a lab is just pure baloney. It’s simply not true,” he declared in an April 2020 interview.
The safety arrangements at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Daszak was possibly unaware of, or perhaps he knew all too well, the long history of viruses escaping from even the best run laboratories. The smallpox virus escaped three times from labs in England in the 1960’s and 1970’s, causing 80 cases and 3 deaths. Dangerous viruses have leaked out of labs almost every year since. Coming to more recent times, the SARS1 virus has proved a true escape artist, leaking from laboratories in Singapore, Taiwan, and no less than four times from the Chinese National Institute of Virology in Beijing.
  One reason for SARS1 being so hard to handle is that there were no vaccines available to protect laboratory workers...
   But all other bat coronaviruses could be studied in BSL2, the next level down. BSL2 requires taking fairly minimal safety precautions, such as wearing lab coats and gloves, not sucking up liquids in a pipette, and putting up biohazard warning signs. Yet a gain-of-function experiment conducted in BSL2 might produce an agent more infectious than either SARS1 or MERS. And if it did, then lab workers would stand a high chance of infection...
  Much of Shi’s work on gain-of-function in coronaviruses was performed at the BSL2 safety level, as is stated in her publications and other documents...
  Human cells have a protein cutting tool on their surface known as furin. Furin will cut any protein chain that carries its signature target cutting site...
  Viruses have all kinds of clever tricks, so why does the furin cleavage site stand out? Because of all known SARS-related beta-coronaviruses, only SARS2 possesses a furin cleavage site. All the other viruses have their S2 unit cleaved at a different site and by a different mechanism.
  How then did SARS2 acquire its furin cleavage site? 
Either the site evolved naturally, or it was inserted by researchers at the S1/S2 junction in a gain-of-function experiment...
​  ​For those who think SARS2 may have escaped from a lab, explaining the furin cleavage site is no problem at all. “Since 1992 the virology community has known that the one sure way to make a virus deadlier is to give it a furin cleavage site at the S1/S2 junction in the laboratory,” writes Steven Quay...
​  ​“When I first saw the furin cleavage site in the viral sequence, with its arginine codons, I said to my wife it was the smoking gun for the origin of the virus,” said David Baltimore, an eminent virologist and former president of CalTech. “These features make a powerful challenge to the idea of a natural origin for SARS2.”

The Jackpot Chronicles Scenario #4: Atlas Shrugged​  
(Um, ok, but how can you assume there will be a working internet or crypto​currency​ under such conditions?)
​  ​It occurred to me that I never did finish the final instalment of last summer’s Jackpot Chronicles, wherein I posited four possible post-Covid scenarios.​..​
​ ​Under the Atlas Shrugged scenario, deglobalization is just one of numerous motivating factors, but it’s mainly an outcome of a larger dynamic where all non-ruling factions in society lose faith in the prevailing structure of Neoliberal Globalism (a.k.a “Mr. Global”). With Mr. Global’s viability in question, people begin to look for the exits.
​  ​This begins to occur on two fronts. What Vilfredo Pareto called “the non-governing elites” begin to realize that the system which used to accommodate them, even rely on their tacit support, is now becoming hostile toward them. At the very least, the ruling elites are undermining their interests. This is part of the dynamic of Peter Turchin’s “elite overpopulation” that we looked at recently.
​  ​The other front is the comparatively powerless underclass, which, in pace with Pareto’s Theory of Elite Cycles, lose their moorings and standing within the system they are expected to adhere to. The social contract no longer seems to be a matter of middle-class protections and living standards but instead becomes starkly authoritarian and one-sided. What is clear is that the existing institutions are now functioning to defend the position of the overclass, not to uphold the rights and liberties of the underclass.
​  The culmination of multiple super-cycles (Pareto’s Elite Cycles, Turchin’s long term dynamics of sociopolitical instability, debt, a Fourth Turning, and a Maunder Minimum for good measure) combined with an accelerated onslaught of technological innovation: Internet, crypto-currencies …biotech? Nanotech? Micro nuke? Fusion? Quantum computing? We have all the necessary components for a complete breakdown of existing institutions and the total loss of legitimacy of the current governing elite class.​..
​  ​In spite of this, Mr. Global’s prevailing policymakers and governance structures will frantically maneuver and spin narratives of fear and fantasy in order to keep the existing system on the rails.​..
​  Nation state establishments within the twilight of a declining system should be thinking deeply about their place in the new reality of network states, not pontificating how they will lord over this new landscape. The coming system will be multipolar in not just the geopolitical dimension, but across cyberspace and the network dimensions as well.

US Declares State Of Emergency To Keep Gasoline Flowing After Colonial Fails To Restart Hacked Pipeline

With fears growing that the Colonial shutdown could last for much longer than initially expected, with some analysts warning that a 5-day shutdown could lead to sharply higher prices, and the Biden admin activating a state of emergency to make sure that critical gasoline supplies continue to flow up the eastern seaboard, moments ago Colonial Pipeline issued an update on its attempts to restore operations, saying that "segments of our pipeline are being brought back online in a stepwise fashion" and that the goal now is to "substantially" restore operational service by the end of the week.

The Middle East is reorganizing​  Thanks Eleni
The Middle Eastern states, divided not by themselves but by the powers that colonised the region, are reorganising themselves according to their own logic. Of course these new alliances are still fragile, but the West will have to deal with them.​..​
​  ​These changes, if they can be sustained, will take time. However, the United Arab Emirates and Israel on the one hand, and Saudi Arabia and Iran on the other, are now facing a new question: should they not all be prepared for a new danger: the expansionism of Turkey and Qatar?
​  ​This is why the United Arab Emirates and Israel have formed an alliance with Greece and Cyprus, while Saudi Arabia and Iran have entered into secret talks.

​Now it's no secret that Saudi Arabia is talking peace with Iran and Syria:
  This latest revelation and confirmation of Saudi-Iran talks also comes as the Saudis are reaching out the the Assad government in Damascus. Earlier this week on Tuesday multiple international reports revealed that Saudi Arabia's powerful intelligence chief traveled to Damascus Monday to meet with his Syrian counterpart in what's being seen as a major step toward detente. The two broke off relations since near the start of the war in 2011, especially as it became clear the Saudis were a key part of the Western allied push for regime change.

Automakers Are Ditching High Tech Features Amidst Unprecedented Semi Shortage
​  ​The ongoing semi chip crisis is starting to force the auto industry to strip some high tech features out of vehicles.
Automakers like Nissan are leaving navigation systems out of "thousands of vehicles" that would typically have them due to the shortage, according to a new report from Bloomberg. Dodge's Ram no longer offers its 1500 pickups with an "intelligent" rearview mirror.
Similarly, Renault has stopped offering an oversized digital screen behind the steering wheel of its Arkana SUV.

Flipping Poles

Polar Opposites,                              

  Eleni, in Athens, with access to army scuttlebutt, says that the Greek military, and from her vantage, ALL militaries are expecting massive war/tumult in about 2025.

  We know that oil is running low, and so on, and that the western financial regime is running on fumes and hopium (and Fed promises).
That does not say "2025".

  Here is my musing about what may be predictably unpredictable about 2025.  
It made me think of magnetic pole flip, as per my NASA friend, Mel, 
Mel is of the informed opinion that pole reversal has been an increasing concern in NASA for at least 2 decades, and suddenly more so recently.

This was the view in 2014:
Scientists already know that magnetic north shifts. Once every few hundred thousand years the magnetic poles flip so that a compass would point south instead of north. While changes in magnetic field strength are part of this normal flipping cycle, data from Swarm have shown the field is starting to weaken faster than in the past. Previously, researchers estimated the field was weakening about 5 percent per century, but the new data revealed the field is actually weakening at 5 percent per decade, or 10 times faster than thought. As such, rather than the full flip occurring in about 2,000 years, as was predicted, the new data suggest it could happen sooner.

  Everything went silent in 2020 when the World Magnetic Model update came out.  
In 2019, awaiting that update, they were more open and chatty, then they CLAMMED-UP.

World Magnetic Model was updated in 2020, but there is no story about what they found, just the software download, for which you must log-in.  

The World Magnetic Model

The World Magnetic Model is a joint product of the United States’ National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the United Kingdom’s Defence Geographic Centre (DGC). The WMM was developed jointly by the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI, Boulder CO, USA) (formerly National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC)) and the British Geological Survey (BGS, Edinburgh, Scotland).

The World Magnetic Model is the standard model used by the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.K. Ministry of Defence, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), for navigation, attitude and heading referencing systems using the geomagnetic field. It is also used widely in civilian navigation and heading systems. The model, associated software, and documentation are distributed by NCEI on behalf of NGA. The model is produced at 5-year intervals, with the current model expiring on December 31, 2024.

"Regarding increased radiation, that would go along with decreased shielding, [but] it seems that the atmosphere would still provide sufficient shielding at Earth's surface that humans and animals would not be significantly affected," she told in an email. 

"However, all the effects we currently only see during strong solar/geomagnetic storms would likely increase and occur ... during moderate solar activity," she added. "This includes satellite outages or damage to satellites, increased radiation doses on long-distance aircraft and the ISS [International Space Station], [and] distortions of telecommunication and GPS signals."

Ongoing monitoring of the Earth's geomagnetic field (which includes the pole) will continue after the WMM release, principally through the European Space Agency Swarm mission, Korte said. But she noted that measuring the north magnetic pole's position is a challenge. That's because the pole is located in a remote area and the measurement of Earth's magnetic field is influenced by all magnetic-field sources — including the magnetic fields found in Earth's atmosphere (the ionosphere and magnetosphere). 

"It will depend on the future magnetic field change, which we cannot predict, if another update to the model out of the usual schedule might be required," she added.

The next update to the WMM after this year's  is expected early in 2020, Beggan said.  You can read more about the WMM here.

About that lack of harm to animals...

The most recent reversal of Earth’s magnetic field may have been as recent as 42,000 years ago, according to a new analysis of fossilised tree rings. This flip of the magnetic poles would have been devastating, creating extreme weather and possibly leading to the extinction of large mammals and the Neanderthals.

Taken Too Much

 Done Being Taken,

There is no room left for parody: Whitney Webbhas the straight scoop. 
This Biden Proposal Could Make the US a “Digital Dictatorship”​  ​
​  ​Last Wednesday, President Biden was widely praised in mainstream and health-care–focused media for his call to create a “new biomedical research agency” modeled after the US military’s “high-risk, high-reward” Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. As touted by the president, the agency would seek to develop “innovative” and “breakthrough” treatments for cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes, with a call to “end cancer as we know it.”  ​ (huh?​ again?​)
​  ​Far from “ending cancer” in the way most Americans might envision it, the proposed agency would merge “national security” with “health security” in such as way as to use both physical and mental health “warning signs” to prevent outbreaks of disease or violence before they occur. Such a system is a recipe for a technocratic “pre-crime” organization with the potential to criminalize both mental and physical illness as well as “wrongthink.”
​  ​The Biden administration has asked Congress for $6.5 billion to fund the agency, which would be largely guided by Biden’s recently confirmed top science adviser, Eric Lander. Lander, formerly the head of the Silicon Valley–dominated Broad Institute, has been controversial for his ties to eugenicist and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his relatively recent praise for James Watson, an overtly racist eugenicist. Despite that, Lander is set to be confirmed by the Senate and Congress and is reportedly significantly enthusiastic about the proposed new “health DARPA.”

​NATO is doing the biggest war games ever on "the Russian front", but something clicked late the week before last that signaled a reduction in tensions (anyway). It seemed to me like some blocking-move(s) had been invisibly put in place​. I'm still thinking about that. Russia did some things at their borders with Ukraine, brought in some huge old motorized artillery pieces from mothballs, that would pound the western Ukies if they attacked Donbas , and it's unclear if those pieces are now in Donbas or Russia, but I'm sure there is a lot more than that going on.

You can't fire me; I'll quit! 
(This implies an alternative payment system already in existence and presumably having been tried out.)

​NATO/US can fight 3 full scale wars at once, right? So the Taliban taking Afghanistan back this spring (waiting until May 1, as agreed by treaty with former president Trumpf) is not even an issue, right? That's no stress at all, right? 
 Moon of Alabama:
The Taliban spring offensive in Afghanistan is more successful than expected.
Today they took the center of Baghlan, a city north of Kabul with some 150,000 inhabitants...
Old #Baghlan town fell to #Taliban after surrender of 100 cops and soldiers. Local account reports that remaining troops are besieged in new part of the city
The city and Baghlan province, marked in pink on the map below, are on the road from Kabul to Tajikistan. This is one of the few 'escape routes' towards a safe country.
That 200 government police and troops laid down their weapons - other reports even say they changed sides - points to the immense fragility of the Afghan forces. Nearly twenty years of U.S. 'training' has had little effect.
Ghazni, south of Kabul, is also under attack and may soon fall to the Taliban.
Yesterday the U.S. launched airstrikes on the southern province Helmand where the Taliban are besieging the province capital Lashkar

It's cool. These guys are all members of the big NATO club. Nothing comes before that.
​  ​After a deal over fishing rights became a major sticking point that almost scuttled a Brexit trade deal between the UK and EU, France and the UK are already feuding over fishing licenses that are supposed to be approved by the UK-dominated island of Jersey, which is facing threats of having its electricity cut off by France if it doesn't stop stalling on issuing fishing licenses to French ships.
​  ​Brussels has already backed France and accused the UK of breaking the newly ratified deal in dispute over Jersey fishing licenses.
​  ​Alarmed by France's threats and a mass of fishing ships arriving in its harbor setting off red flares in protest, the Royal Navy has sent two ships that have just arrived in the island's waters. PM Boris Johnson, who was reportedly only made aware of the conflict this week, says he stands behind the island of Jersey, which is a protectorate of the British Crown.
​  ​French fishermen and ministers have been complaining for two weeks about the difficulty of gaining access to British waters despite the agreement on fisheries reached at the end of last year. Apparently, the British applied new conditions to fisheries applications requiring fishermen to prove via GPS that they have been fishing in Jersey waters, the FT reports.
​  ​Small boat owners argue that they do not have GPS technology and the other electronic surveillance equipment required. Other special conditions attached to the licenses relate to the fishing gear itself. The EU-UK trade deal allows the UK to impose new requirements, but they must be based on "clear scientific rationale". In this case, there doesn't appear to be any rationale for its demands.

​A promise made to a dying patient:

  My grim job this week was to report a vaccine related death to the authorities.  I have had to do this type of reporting on other occasions in my career, with other drugs, both approved and research trials, with both deaths and morbid complications.  In every single instance in the past, without exception, I have been contacted within 1-2 hours by either the FDA or the CDC.  They questioned me, discussed the particulars with me, and a collaboration was begun.  

This death was much different.
  A little about the patient situation. She had her vaccine about 8 AM on a weekday. It was the 2nd shot. Very soon thereafter, she felt electric shocks over her entire body. Later, she was having trouble speaking and could not stand up. She began having severe problems swallowing. I advised to go immediately to the ER. I will not go into details here but suffice it to say, she was having a profound neurologic problem. It was not a simple stroke nor was it a blood clotting issue. Because of the timing of symptom initiation, it was clear to me that the vaccine was likely involved. She was diagnosed with a condition that is very very unusual and is often associated with vaccine administration. She had 5 weeks of very severe pain and did not recover. She was eventually placed on hospice and passed away. Before she died, she told me to make sure that everyone knows that these vaccines are not as safe as advertised. Believe you me, her family is doing everything they can to make sure that this story is known all over the community. The patient herself was a very well-loved individual here – and this has been a blow to the entire area.
  I am a licensed physician in a US state.  I am board certified in Internal Medicine.  I made every effort to immediately report this death to the federal officials.  I called the FDA and ended up in voicemail hell.  I called the CDC and was literally hung up on twice.  Again, please contrast that reception to what I describe above in previous “non-crisis” years.
  After multiple attempts, I finally decided to report to VAERS.  This was almost a week ago.  To date, the VAERS has no record of my patient.  All that I have received is an email to confirm my submission.  No one from any agency has made any effort to contact me in any way.  It was of little comfort to note in in the New York Times, that the physicians trying to report one of the sentinel J&J stroke cases got a similar “hang up in your face” response from the FDA/CDC.
  I want to reiterate – a patient has died.  A board-certified internist feels this is likely vaccine-related.  And no one has made any effort to contact me.  None. A complete departure from the past.  And this is a stringent safety-reporting system?
  What am I trying to say?  The system is broken.  Therefore, we have no idea what is the actual safety profile of these vaccines.  The patients who have been affected know it.  Word is getting out that there are problems.  Social media is filled with all kinds of stories.  And our federal officials keep right on with the same “All is well – everything is safe” mantra.  We have media figures everywhere spouting out safety numbers that I can assure you are not accurate.  All in an environment when they are trying to convince as many as possible to take this vaccine.

Rare Opportunities


  We have a window of opportunity to establish kind and sensible changes in our homes and neighborhoods, in our worlds, this spring.
It looks to me like the stresses between great powers are creating something like a gridlock in global power dynamics.
The US looked like it was going to amplify the Ukrainian civil war, but that seemed to fade last week. 
There was some kind of blocking move.

  The big picture is that the post WW-2 western empire of NATO, neocons and neoliberalism is crumbling, because it is now based upon extortion and extraction, not on production. An extractive system is not healthy and vibrant, and it is faced off against the productive alternative offered by China and Eurasian Integration.
The west cannot make any big attack against the weapons of Russia, China and Iran, so there is stalemate.
  Russia, China and Iran, wisely wait for the western empire to keep unraveling. They do not want to become the threat to pull westerners together.
"When your enemy is defeating himself, do not interfere", quoth The Art Of War, by Sun Tzu.
Russia, China and Iran have been through lots of social turmoil, unraveling and resetting in the formative years of their current sets of leaders.
Those leaders are in their primes, more or less, not like the political geriatrics holding the reins of power in the US.
One of the best paths forward is if any threatened assault, like the NATO threats in Ukraine, spoofed in the west as Russian threats, are just quietly blocked.
  A long period of global military stagnation is in our, human, best interests. We can grow gardens. 
I have no new earth-shattering suggestions as the fuel to power industrial civilization steadily depletes.
  Growing gardens, making real, useful relationships with other humans, to help each other and share ideas, and praying for guidance every day are all I have.
That's probably better than it looks on its face, especially if global military stagnation will buy us time. Praying for spiritual guidance in the interests of love and harmony is not the neoliberal-neocon game plan, but the current masters see it as an impotent diversion for us to dabble in.
  I think they don't understand spiritual coordination. 
I'm sort of glad they don't, sides being taken already, but if they did, they would be different people.
  Try praying for guidance to do the right thing for the good of life in our world and see how that goes.
To whom might one pray, to what entity or force?
However you might envision and experience the spirits of truth, cooperation and compassion should work well.
Altruistic prayer for guidance, naturally includes the practitioner of prayer in the eventual benefits, but it is not selfish.
Selfishness is the problem with the current extractive system of the western-petrobuck-empire. 
It's killing the hosts, killing us. It's not us. It eats us. 
It feeds us with one hand while sucking our lifeblood out through needles and tubes.
  We need to work on our little parallel, inefficient, quaint human life support patterns, the ones people used to use in the old days.
We are wired for this kind of human social cooperation to grow food, build barns, make clothes and shell beans.
We're rusty,  but not hopeless, not at all hopeless. 
This is a good moment for hope and action together.

You should get out more. Go get a nasal swab; you need the activity. 
Maybe you'll have 7 negative days and be able to leave the house with a mask.

A War on Touch
... I am tactile. I perceive the world through physical touch. The current war on intimacy and the physical world at large outrages me because it attacks the very foundation of what makes a human life worth living. Plus, it is based on treachery.
​  ​Let me address the famous counter-argument head on: “Hold on hold on, no one is canceling the world, all of this is simply a reaction to the pandemic, don’t you see?”
​  ​No, it is not. We are being lied to. Let me repeat: We are being lied to. We are being lied to, there are signs of fraud all over the place (from censorship to bad statistics to suppressed effective cures to the fact that the “health response” was ready before the pandemic even started).​ ...
​  But look around. Look around through your 2019 eyes. A reminder: nothing in nature has changed. Any virus would be dangerous to some without cures and with unprecedented levels of stress and medical mismanagement.
​  ​And finally, if there were any actual honest science behind the paradigm of imprisoning healthy people, separating families, closing schools, and betraying beloved elders who have died alone in nursing homes—if there were any actual science behind it, I reassure you, there would not be many skeptics. People generally want to do what helps them stay alive.

Evaluating the effects of shelter-in-place policies during the COVID-19 pandemic
  We estimate the effects of shelter-in-place (SIP) orders during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. We do not find detectable effects of these policies on disease spread or deaths. We find small but measurable effects on mobility that dissipate over time. And we find small, delayed effects on unemployment. We conduct additional analyses that separately assess the effects of expanding versus withdrawing SIP orders and test whether there are spillover effects in other states. Our results are consistent with prior studies showing that SIP orders have accounted for a relatively small share of the mobility trends and economic disruptions associated with the pandemic. We reanalyze two prior studies purporting to show that SIP orders caused large reductions in disease prevalence, and show that those results are not reliable. Our results do not imply that social distancing behavior by individuals, as distinct from SIP policy, is ineffective.  

​This happened in a vibrant and rapidly growing economy, not a crumbling, parasitized economy, with the owners fearful of losing control of us.
Niall Ferguson: How Ike's 1950s America Beat The 'Asian Flu' With Science & Common Sense
​  ​In 1957, the U.S. rose to the challenge of the ‘Asian flu’ with stoicism and a high tolerance for risk, offering a stark contrast with today’s approach to Covid-19...
...1957 also saw the outbreak of one of the biggest pandemics of the modern era. Not coincidentally, another hit of that year was “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu” by Huey “Piano” Smith & the Clowns.
​  ​When seeking historical analogies for Covid-19, commentators have referred more often to the catastrophic 1918-19 “Spanish influenza” than to the flu pandemic of 1957-58. Yet the later episode deserves to be much better known, not just because the public health threat was a closer match to our own but because American society at the time was better prepared—culturally, institutionally and politically—to deal with it.

Twitter isn’t censoring accounts to keep users ‘safe’, it is using its power to spoon-feed the world establishment narratives

​  ​Some time later, his account was frozen and he received a notice from Twitter that it would remain frozen until he deleted the offending tweet, and for the 12 hours following that.

Former UN Employee's Brave Mission,  "Be the drop that tips the bucket."
​  ​After I started speaking up, I discovered so many brave and outspoken people that my heart is filled with gratitude to all of you.
One of my new friends is Mary Otto-Chang.

Mary is a former employee of the United Nations who had a very gratifying and respectable career there.
Then 2020 happened—and like many of us, she started looking into the Great Reset and 4IR agenda—and was so appalled by it that she felt the urge to act.
Mary then created a communication campaign to educate UN employees, government workers and citizens of Canada in general about the Great Reset agenda and the 4IR, in the language that is easy to digest. She went for it as a solo warrior, a move that takes some guts. Currently, she is reaching out to people—including in the UN—bringing their attention to what really is going on.

​John Ward looks at Bill and Melinda's DIVORCE as analogous to other stuff...
​  The fiscal and financial Left Field is complex and crowded: the scheme to hide further wealth transfer and control behind climate emergency and viral pandemic sounds very neat on paper, but in real life the chronic debt, rising inflation, precious metals, EU bankruptcy, French faillite and increasingly wobbly Covid19 narrative point to a potential swarm of chaos.
  Divorcees have a habit of forming seemingly unlikely new relationships. No option for alliance – good or bad – should be dismissed out of hand…..nor, I suspect, will it be.

("Sultan") Erdogan's Turkey is not picking a side, but is taking the best deals from Russia and the US, and NATO and Ukraine (and has been dealing quietly with Iran, we know), and is also asserting Turkish leadership and autonomy. 
Turkey is at a critical crossroads for pipelines, people, shipping and cultures. Greece was there, Byzantium, and currently the neo-Ottoman Erdogan. It is a critical and rapidly-evolving position.  In a great power stalemate, Turkey chooses to advance quickly.

80% of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 in their noses have mild illness. That appears to be due to about 80% of people having significant crossover resistance to COVID, stored in their cellular immunity, in T-cells, from prior infections with other endemic coronavirus strains. Those people basically keep the virus from entering their bloodstreams, where it does not belong, and can cause great harm. The virus attacks the lining of the blood vessels, causing inflammation, clots and lod=ss of blood supply to useful organs like the brain, heart and kidneys.
3 studies now show that even the spike protein alone, in the bloodstream, is inflammatory and causes clots and injury.
​  ​One of the most important pathologies, is hypercoagulation and microclots in the lungs of patients. Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential inflammagen sui generis. Using scanning electron and fluorescence microscopy as well as mass spectrometry, we investigate the potential of this inflammagen to interact with platelets and fibrin(ogen) directly to cause blood hypercoagulation. Using platelet poor plasma (PPP), we show that spike protein may interfere with blood flow.
It's a good thing nobody is trying to inject spike proteins into us, isn't it?
Some of us have inadvertently chosen to make spike proteins in-house and have strokes, paralysis, brain-clots and other undesired things.
If you don't want to do this, don't accept genetic injections which will make your body do this.  Thanks Jeremy

Nothing Worth Stealing


The CIA Has Been Taking Over For Decades, Lee Camp

  Remember, fascism will come to America wrapped in an American flag, holding a cross, dressed in a skimpy outfit, cradling a bucket of KFC fried chicken, and giving out free handies. Or, as Greenwald put it, “There are few dangers more acute than the weaponization of these security-state-instruments against U.S. citizens for political ends.”
  For generations the Intelligence Community has been a runaway truck — crushing everything in its path, creating coups around the world, killing thousands, and intruding on the lives of average citizens. As I already mentioned, even the president who created the CIA and dropped atomic bombs on people — even that guy felt the CIA was a grave danger to the American experiment. Those concerns started just after he saw a president get whacked live on prime time. I wonder why.

An interview with a transcript, and if you scroll down, a "clean transcript". Lab Origins of COVID-19 (Nothing is specific to the Wuhan lab, and there were a lot of unexplained deaths from viral pneumonia in a retirement community near Ft Detrick MD in June and July 2019, just before the viral lab was shut down for "breach".)
​  ​Two scientists with knowledge of the matter told me the U.S. government conducted genome sequencing almost immediately in the pandemic. Among other things, they say Covid-19 shows clear hallmarks of man’s intervention.
​  ​French virologist Luc Montagnier, a Nobel Prize recipient, arrived at the same conclusion a year ago. He says Covid-19’s genetics reveal “manipulation.” “Someone added sequences,” he said. “It’s the work of professionals, of molecular biologists…a very meticulous work.”

​They'll get you coming and going...​ 
Don't take vitamin-D, Ivermectin, zinc or hydroxychloroquine, which are unapproved and might kill you!
  The Pfizer pharmaceutical company is conducting trials on an antiviral drug could be ready for public use later this year that is intended to attack the spine of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and result in a cure to the sickness.

​Madamski found this Nature article about research on protease inhibitor antivirals for COVID. 
Look, ivermectin acts as a protease inhibitor in this virus!
Our results indicate that boceprevir, ombitasvir, paritaprevir, tipranavir, ivermectin, and micafungin exhibited inhibitory effect towards 3CLpro enzymatic activity. The 100 ns molecular dynamics simulation studies showed that ivermectin may require homodimeric form of 3CLpro enzyme for its inhibitory activity. In summary, these molecules could be useful to develop highly specific therapeutically viable drugs to inhibit the SARS-CoV-2 replication either alone or in combination with drugs specific for other SARS-CoV-2 viral targets.​ 
(Which means: "You can probably make a patentable drug with a little work and rake in billions for the effort, then billions in sales")

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) announced today that it is progressing to multiple ascending doses after completing the dosing of single ascending doses in a Phase 1 study in healthy adults to evaluate the safety and tolerability of an investigational, novel oral antiviral therapeutic for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This Phase 1 trial is being conducted in the United States. The oral antiviral clinical candidate PF-07321332, a SARS-CoV2-3CL protease inhibitor, has demonstrated potent in vitro anti-viral activity against SARS-CoV-2, as well as activity against other coronaviruses, suggesting potential for use in the treatment of COVID-19 as well as potential use to address future coronavirus threats.

​Jeremy sent this story about protecting people from the ministries of their government, by supplying ivermectin despite the threats and consequences:
​  ​Anakalusugan Representative Mike Defensor on Wednesday said he is willing to fight the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in court if the regulatory body will order him to stop his Ivermectin community pantry.
​  ​“If they will again stop this initiative, I will fight them in court because we are compliant legally,” Defensor told reporters in a virtual meeting.
​  ​“On two occasions during the hearings, the FDA said it can be processed. If this will be stopped again and hinder those in need from getting the drug, I will fight them in court. It’s too much,” he added.
​  ​Defensor and Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta will formally launch the event “Ivermectin Pan-three” at the Matandang Balara Hall Park, Quezon City on Thursday morning.
​  ​In the event, beneficiaries will receive at least three free human-grade Ivermectin capsules upon the prescription of doctors affiliated with the Concerned Doctors and Citizens of the Philippines (CDCph), the group of medical experts pushing for the use of the anti-parasitic drug to treat Covid-19.
​  ​Defensor insisted that the free distribution of the said medicine is legal since the compounded Ivermectin, that will be provided, will be coming from Lifecore Bio-integrative, Inc. a licensed compounding laboratory in Quezon City.

​After a year of depleting stocks, businesses are trying to replete inventories and global shipping can't keep up.
