Build Back Never

 Not Buying It,


Note: "Build Back Better World" is now B3W Pepe Escobar has the NWO horse-race story:
​  ​As for the threats from China – South China Sea, Taiwan, the Indo-Pacific overall – it was up to the G7 to come up with a plan.
​  ​Enter “green”, “inclusive” Build Back Better World (B3W), billed as the Western “alternative” to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). B3W respects “our values” – which clownish British PM Boris Johnson could not help describing as building infrastructure in a more “gender neutral” or “feminine” way – and, further on down the road, will remove goods produced with forced labor (code for Xinjiang) from supply chains.
​  ​The White House has its own B3W spin: that’s a “values-driven, high-standard, and transparent infrastructure partnership” which will be “mobilizing private-sector capital in four areas of focus – climate, health and health security, digital technology, and gender equality – with catalytic investments from our respective development institutions”
​  ​The initial “catalytic investments” for BW3 were estimated at $100 billion. No one knows how these funds will be coming from the “development institutions”.
​  ​Seasoned Global South observers already bet they will be essentially provided by IMF/World Bank “green” loans tied to private sector investment in selected emerging markets, with an eye on profit.
​  ​The White House is adamant that “B3W will be global in scope, from Latin America and the Caribbean to Africa and the Indo-Pacific”. Note the blatant attempt to match BRI’s reach.
​  ​All these “green” resources and new logistic chains financed by what will be a variant of Central Banks showering helicopter money would ultimately benefit G7 members, certainly not China.
​  ​And the “protector” of these new “green” geostrategic corridors will be – who else? – NATO. That’s the natural consequence of the “global reach” emphasized on the NATO 2030 agenda.

​I personally think that none of these agendas will work well going forward, because all of the compensation mechanisms that modern industrial economy currently uses will decompensate at about the same time as oil prices spike above $100/bbl again, which impacts mining, shipping,farming, wages, profits, everything, Then even the Fed won't be able to keep the Ponzi bubble blown.​ Confidence, meet Panic. ("Don't Panic!")

The internet, like everything else in our lives, is not sustainable with a decrease in cheap energy, cheap mined ores and other natural resources.

Gail Tverberg, Our Finite World, Where Energy Modeling Goes Wrong
Summary: The economy is approaching near-term collapse, not peak oil. The result is quite different.
​  ​The modeling that comes closest to being correct is that which underlies the 1972 book, The Limits to Growth by Donella Meadows and others. This modeling was based on physical quantities of resources, with no financial system whatsoever. The base model, shown here, indicates that limits would be reached a few years later than we actually seem to be reaching them. The dotted black line in Figure 1 indicates where I saw the world economy to be in January 2019, based on the limits we already seemed to be reaching at that time.
(I think that line is ​drawn ​at 2010, myself.)


​There are different global groups of elites, at war against each other, and the western elites are at war internally, too.​ I am on the side of complex living ecosystems.
Have the Great Reset Technocrats Really Thought This Through? Evil: Between Depopulation & Neuralink
​  ​The only thing left to destroy in a world populated by elites alone, are other elites. It would seem that the desire to dominate others does not simply come to an end on its own.
​  ​With the UN World Food Program announcing that some 270 million people worldwide now face starvation, the ongoing debate about the real aims of the technocracy is profound. The question is whether their aim tends more towards major population reduction, or more towards a new type of slavery.
​  ​It appears that philosophical and long-term practical questions remain​s​ a mystery. We will argue that evil, not simply the influence of the base upon the superstructure, is at the core of this endeavor. We have defined evil as inflicting the highest degree of pain upon the greatest number of resisting subjects. In short, we have defined evil as sadism, inflicting evil because it brings satisfaction to those inflicting it.
​  ​Because evil is fundamentally a destructive force, it cannot create anything: nothing in it is truly novel nor of use to humanity. Its pleasures are short-lived and spurious. It is unsustainable, self-defeating, ultimately leading to self-destruction.
[Lots of excellent facts and analysis.] ...
​  ​For these reasons, it is likely that some elites have seen the problem in this end game. This would explain the inter-elite conflict which we have explored previously, and will return to in the near future.

​CJ Hopkins,  Manufacturing (New Normal) Reality
​  ​During the changeover from the old “reality” to the new “reality,” the society is torn apart. The old “reality” is being disassembled and the new one has not yet taken its place. It feels like madness, and, in a way, it is. For a time, the society is split in two, as the two “realities” battle it out for dominance. “Reality” being what it is (i.e., monolithic), this is a fight to the death. In the end, only one “reality” can prevail.
​  ​This is the crucial period for the totalitarian movement. It needs to negate the old “reality” in order to implement the new one, and it cannot do that with reason and facts, so it has to do it with fear and brute force. It needs to terrorize the majority of society into a state of mindless mass hysteria that can be turned against those resisting the new “reality.” It is not a matter of persuading or convincing people to accept the new “reality.” It’s more like how you drive a herd of cattle. You scare them enough to get them moving, then you steer them wherever you want them to go. The cattle do not know or understand where they are going. They are simply reacting to a physical stimulus. Facts and reason have nothing to do with it.​..​
  The pressure to conform to the new “reality” is already intense and it’s going to get worse as vaccination passes, public mask-wearing, periodic lockdowns, etc., become normalized. Those who don’t conform will be systematically demonized, socially and/or professionally ostracized, segregated, and otherwise punished. Our opinions will be censored. We will be “canceled,” deplatformed, demonitized, and otherwise silenced. Our views will be labeled “potentially harmful.” We will be accused of spreading “misinformation,” of being “far-right extremists,” “racists,” “anti-Semites,” “conspiracy theorists,” “anti-vaxxers,” “anti-global-capitalist violent domestic terrorists,” or just garden variety “sexual harassers,” or whatever they believe will damage us the most.
  T​his will happen in both the public and personal spheres. Not just governments, the media, and corporations, but your colleagues, friends, and family will do this. Strangers in shops and restaurants will do this. Most of them will not do it consciously. They will do it because your non-conformity represents an existential threat to them … a negation of their new “reality” and a reminder of the reality they surrendered in order to remain a “normal” person and avoid the punishments described above.
​  ​This is nothing new, of course. It is how “reality” is manufactured, not only in totalitarian systems, but in every organized social system. Those in power instrumentalize the masses to enforce conformity with their official ideology. Totalitarianism is just its most extreme and most dangerously paranoid and fanatical form.

We Are About To RunOut Of Some Stuff

​  ​You’ve probably never heard of Yantian International Container Terminal, the busiest port of Shenzhen. Overall, Shenzhen is the third largest container port in the world, roughly three times as big as the largest US port, Los Angeles. Not that far away sits another place you’ve never heard of, Guangzhou Harbor, the world’s fifth largest container port. Together, these two ports handled nearly 50 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of cargo in 2018.
​  ​In about a week, these ports will be all you hear about.
​  ​The Chinese province of Guangzhou is dealing with an outbreak of the Delta variant of COVID-19, a highly contagious form of the virus originally discovered in India. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has a history of aggressively dealing with localized COVID-19 outbreaks, and this time is no different, global supply chains be damned. And damned they will be. In late May, the CCP effectively shut down these two ports, leading to an unprecedented shipping logjam that will make the March 2021 blockage of the Suez Canal by the Ever Given seem downright trivial.​  ​

Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection
A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines
Meta-analysis of 15 trials found that ivermectin reduced risk of death compared with no ivermectin (average risk ratio 0.38, 95% confidence interval 0.19–0.73; n = 2438; I2 = 49%; moderate-certainty evidence).

Constructive Discussions

 Not Particularly Shocked,


​  ​Russian President Vladimir Putin said his meeting with President Biden in Switzerland on Wednesday was hostility-free, adding that "on the contrary … it was very constructive." Putin described Biden as a "balanced and professional man, and it's clear that he's very experienced," and said "it seems to me that we did speak the same language."
https://www.zerohedge.com/political/putin-portrait-biden-drawn-media-has-nothing-do-reality

​Oh, "we" got something. We kept Germany as an ally; maybe more, but it's secret. What about that cyber-crime cooperation? Great Reset? Non-aggression pact?
​  ​Appearing on Hannity, Trump noted “We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing.”
He continued, “We gave up something that was unbelievably valuable. I stopped the pipeline, NordStream II, and the pipeline was stopped, and it was given back [to Germany and Russia] and nothing was gotten for it.”

​Moon of Alabama summarizes the 2 hour summit:
There were a few results:
The ambassadors of both sides, who had been recalled from Washington and Moscow, will return to their posts.
There will be new expert rounds about cybersecurity.
There may be talks about an exchange of prisoners.
There will be new rounds about security, which means strategic nuclear weapons.
A joint statement by both sides about Strategic Stability has been posted in Russian on the Kremlin site (machine translation):
  Today we reaffirm our adherence to the principle that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and should never be unleashed.
To achieve these goals, Russia and the United States will soon launch a comprehensive bilateral dialogue on strategic stability, which will be substantive and energetic. Through this dialogue, we aim to lay the foundation for future arms control and risk mitigation measures.
  That is a very important result and the upcoming talks will be interesting. The U.S. will have to end its Missile Defense Program if it wants limits on any of the new strategic weapon types Russia has introduced.

Emergency Use Authorizations for experimental and toxic "vaccines" are only legal if there is nothing else that works safely, so LIE BIG and DON'T STOP.
​  ​In April 2020, Fauci endorsed the high-priced anti-viral remdesivir, calling it the “standard of care” before the first study was published. Did anyone in those investigative powerhouses question the financial ties between the NIH and the drug’s maker, Gilead? Did they care that the study showed no mortality improvement, and the trial’s endpoint was changed to improve benefits so marginal that the WHO advises against the drug?
–Hospitals vehemently oppose ivermectin, forcing some patients’ families to obtain court orders to get it. Does this comport with their liberal use of treatments like monoclonal antibodies and convalescent plasma that are still considered experimental? Just 19 deaths were associated with ivermectin in 20 years; 503 were linked to remdesivir in its first year. Annualized, that’s roughly a 500-fold higher toll for remdesivir. Why is ivermectin — safe, FDA-approved — not used off-label, especially in dying ICU patients, when the potential harm is miniscule?
–The COVID pandemic has led to the most widespread, government-sanctioned wave of censorship and authoritarian message control in American history. Rather than fighting this, the media carries the water. When Merck disingenuously disavowed ivermectin’s safety — a drug it gave away by the billion in a life-saving campaign against parasites — widespread media reports failed to note the company’s potential to make big money on patented new drugs on which it was already working.
–More importantly, the evidence in favor of ivermectin aligns so uniformly that the odds of it being wrong are infinitesimal. 
Why not read the studies? Why not talk to doctors who have used the drug and patients who have taken it?​  ​(​$)​

​  ​Confidential documents have surfaced in a Confidentiality Agreement between the U.S. National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Moderna showing they transferred "potential coronavirus vaccine candidates" to the University of North Carolina, on December 12, 2019
. . . which was nineteen (19) days BEFORE the outbreak of novel coronavirus in China!

​This experiment was carried out in Central America, too. The special tetanus vaccine causes "spontaneous"  abortion.
​  ​This “vaccine” against pregnancy was developed by Dr G.P. Talwar in 1972. The idea is to produce antibodies to the pregnancy hormone, such that the women would not be able to carry a normal pregnancy. Women who were pregnant would abort and those not pregnant would be rendered infertile. The report is indeed disturbing. A few months earlier an article entitled “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World” was published by Oller and colleagues in the Open Access Library Journal.
​  ​The Oller report described young women in Kenya who were vaccinated with this “Talwar vaccine” on the pretext of preventing maternal and neonatal (baby) tetanus. Many of the samples of the tetanus vaccine that tested positive for hCG was sourced from the Serum Institute of India.
​  ​The vaccine programme was promoted by the WHO and the Kenyan government, funded by the Gates Foundation. Mothers-to-be were encouraged to take the vaccine to prevent tetanus in their unborn babies, without being told that the vaccine would prevent the baby from ever being born.

Charm Initiative

 Charming People,


  I'm going on a charm initiative (I was going to say "charm offensive", but it's ...).
A couple of days ago I emailed the Medical Directors at my clinic about the Houston nurses (and others) fired for their refusal to accept experimental genetic engineering "vaccinations" into their bodies.
  I said that having given it deep consideration, and not thinking that our clinic would act this way (I don't), that if such an edict came down from Washington I would have to resign my position.
  My statement of principle and position was politely received, with the reply that this was not a near-term consideration.
  I have made the loss of my services a set-piece going forward. I don't really want that. I have worked 17 (discontinuous) years at this clinic. I am versatile in what services I can provide, broadly experienced, do very good work, as judged by patients and reviewers, grow the vegetable garden, and go pretty slowly. I am not "productive" as business managers judge those things, or as payers reimburse. I am a money loser.
  I have not taken a vacation, and have lost almost all of that time by not using it, in the 8 continuous years I have been working there recently. I work all day every Friday. Nobody wants to do that. I work a 12 hour long 8-hour shift, and I don't leave until everything is done. 
Since I am not monetarily "productie", I seek to be generally helpful and to prevent bad things from happening on my watches.
  Fifteen years ago, when "the kids" were teenagers, we sold the house and cars, and traveled around the world with bikes and backpacks. 
We were "home schooling" the kids. It worked out fine. They learned stuff. Nobody missed a year.
  Two places we visited taught the same lesson, Dachau concentration camp in Germany, and Tuol Sleng torture prison museum in Cambodia. 
The lesson was not that the people who did those things were monsters.
  The torturers and guards were ordinary people, which is a really important insight. They got mired in a sequence of slightly easier decisions to not quite do the right thing this time. They entered Hell gradually, having no-other-choice, each little step of the way, as they saw it. 
Things did not get better. Things did not go back to normal.
  Knowing this feature of history, one must determine how one would avoid getting caught in such a trap, should it be laid for them. One must act when one still has some autonomy. That is pretty early in the process, clearly before things "get bad". When does the frog jump out of the progressively warming water?
  What might be the signal? You can see that I have chosen the signal of forced injection of genetic-engineering black-boxes, the elimination of personal choice regarding bodily autonomy, as my hill-to-die-upon.
  I'd rather not die on that hill, so to speak, but I can't work in a setting that has adopted that human-as-property ethos.
I'm going to find ways to be even nicer and more useful than usual. I think the vegetable garden emails that everybody likes are going to become a bit more frequent.
  The garden is producing. It's June.

No "healthy young children" have died from COVID.
​  ​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now claims that "healthy young children" can die from COVID-19. Marty Makary wants to see the evidence.
"In reviewing the medical literature and news reports, and in talking to pediatricians across the country, I am not aware of a single healthy child in the U.S. who has died of COVID-19 to date," the Johns Hopkins University professor of medicine and public health said Thursday.

19-Year-Old College Freshman Dies From Heart Problem One Month After Second Dose of Moderna Vaccine
​  ​Simone Scott underwent a heart transplant one month after developing what her doctors believe was myocarditis following her second dose of Moderna. She received the second vaccine May 1 and died June 11.

The Killer in the Bloodstream: the "Spike Protein"
​  ​The Spike Protein is a “uniquely dangerous” transmembrane fusion protein that is an integral part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. “The S protein plays a crucial role in penetrating host cells and initiating infection.” It also damages the cells in the lining of the blood vessel walls which leads to blood clots, bleeding, massive inflammation and death.
​  ​To say that the spike protein is merely “dangerous”, is a vast understatement. It is a potentially-lethal pathogen that has already killed tens of thousands of people.
​  ​So, why did the vaccine manufacturers settle on the spike protein as an antigen that would induce an immune response in the body?
That’s the million-dollar question, after all, for all practical purposes, the spike protein is a poison.

​  ​On 25 May 2021, the Indian Bar Association (IBA) served a 51-page legal notice on Dr Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist at the World Health Organisation (WHO), for “her act of spreading disinformation and misguiding the people of India, in order to fulfil her agenda.”
​  ​The Mumbai-based IBA is an association of lawyers who strive to bring transparency and accountability to the Indian justice system. It is actively involved in the dissemination of legal knowledge and provides guidance and support to advocates and ordinary people in their fight for justice.
The legal notice says Dr Swaminathan has been:
“Running a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin by deliberate suppression of effectiveness of drug Ivermectin as prophylaxis and for treatment of COVID-19, despite the existence of large amounts of clinical data compiled and presented by esteemed, highly qualified, experienced medical doctors and scientists,”

​People "split the alternatives" once they have committed to a decision. The alternative they did not choose becomes, in hindsight, nothing-worth-considering, even though the decision was close and difficult. After more difficult decisions, the alternative-splitting effect may actually increase, to relieve stress of cognitive dissonance.
​  A new poll shows that Democrats and Republicans are just about as divided on an employee's right to choose whether to get vaccinated against Covid-19 as they are on a woman's right to choose whether to abort her unborn child.
  Nearly 80% of Democrats agreed that employers should be able to force their workers to get Covid-19 shots, according to a CBS News-YouGov poll released on Sunday. In contrast, only 39% of Republicans approved of giving businesses such authority over their employees' medical choices. The overall response was 56%-44% in favor of forced jabs.
  Supporters of the two major parties are more split on vaccine choice than on Covid-19 inoculation in general. While 95% of Democrats have already been vaccinated or are at least considering it, 71% of Republicans are on board or thinking about taking the jab, the poll showed.

Still not to be discussed, the multiple mechanisms of action of ivermectin against SARS-CoV-2. 
Thanks Marc MD. This is a technical paper with a good graphic.

After his name was mentioned on late night TV, Sen. Johnson shares letter from grateful constituent
​  ​Johnson tweeted on Tuesday that he enjoyed the pair's discussion on the show and the lawmaker shared a letter from a constituent who had written to say that Ivermectin greatly helped his wife who had suffered significantly with COVID-19...
​  ​"I am writing today to thank you for your leadership in Wisconsin as it relates to COVID and alternative treatments. My wife and I watched Dr. Pierre Kory testify before the Senate Committee about ivermectin, Dec. 8, 2020, and we were utterly dumbfounded that this treatment was not readily available as treatment and prevention to the general public," the constituent wrote.
​  ​The letter explained that the woman later became ill with COVID-19 in May and suffered significant symptoms.
"Her case was quite severe; she will report that she has never experienced the severity of headaches and body aches in her lifetime as well as severe nausea and high temperatures," the letter noted. "As the days progressed, she grew so weak that she was not able to walk without assistance."
​  ​"As her symptoms worsened, I remembered the hearing you hosted and Dr. Kory. Through your leadership on this issue, I was finally able to connect with a Green Bay doctor that provided my wife real treatment — Ivermectin and other support prescriptions. Within an hour of taking Ivermectin, her headaches were gone,"
the person told Johnson.​ 
(Your Mileage May Vary. Most people feel better within 48 hours, in my experience.)

​Russian "charm offensive": Thanks Wiggs. This is charming(ish) and not too long at all.

​Please be informed that this article is Political Satire, a new category that Facebook (and the New York Times) had to discover after slandering the Babylon Bee as a far right extremist blog and censoring it.​ 
It turns out that Political Satire is an old and constitutionally protected (as such things go) form of public speech.
In Honor Of Pride Month, Biden Announces He Will Also Sniff Men's Hair
Biden was then quickly led off the podium by his wife before he could say any more.
​  ​"Every gender! I'll sniff 'em all!" Biden yelled, protesting as he was dragged out of sight of the crowd.
According to sources, no gay men have taken up Biden on his offer to sniff their hair. However, hundreds of straight male journalists have lined up outside the White House clapping and cheering, hoping for their chance to be sniffed by the President.

​Black Holes can only get bigger. 
Damned, ultimately, no matter whether you do or don't. (More Russian news.)
​  ​Splitting the gravitational wave data into time segments before and after the black holes merged, the researchers calculated the surface areas of the black holes in both periods.
​  ​The physicists found that the surface area of the new black hole was actually greater than the two initial black holes combined. The finding confirms a prediction made by famed scientist, Stephen Hawking, in the 1970s, in which he stated that black holes cannot decrease in surface area as it mirrored a rule in physics, that entropy or disorder can’t decrease over time.

Framing The Question

 Autonomous Human Vehicles,


  Societal changes do not just happen. Entire societies have  to work them out and enact them. It's not as simple as a good or evil government making a detailed plan and having it carried out in a series of laws and processes. WW-2 was a complex example of that, as was the Great Depression. 
  We are already well into failing processes to bring about "The Fourth Industrial Revolution" and "Great Reset". The elite owners plan a "transhuman" future, except for themselves, and whatever other faithful and capable human servants they need, but not 90% of humans. 
  The transition from the postwar societal contracts, where people could reasonably expect personal freedoms and the opportunity to earn a good/adequate living by working diligently, to whatever sort of hopeless slavery awaits us is going poorly at first.
  People are embracing the new rules on one hand, giving their teenagrs "the vaccine", like it's a good thing, completely innocent to the extreme dangers, even after "reactions" begin. "That just means it's working." I have a specific boy in my prayers, and have not yet been able to see the wise way to speak to his mother, my friend, about what is happening. He is away, visiting family. She doesn't understand. She loves him with all her heart.
  Other people, like the workers at Methodist Hospital in Houston, who are jobless, after the Federal Judge rejected their bodily rights argument out of hand, have found their hill to stand and defend:  
https://www.11alive.com/article/news/state/federal-court-ruling-employers-can-require-employees-to-get-covid19-vaccination/85-0f156612-ed8f-48ff-918f-c7613ab0484f
  How does this become a first, crystalized choice for the rest of us? It is easier to delay that choice, but it seems to be crystalizing for our Western societies around bodily integrity, around the precedent of having to accept a genetic-engineering injection into your flesh to have the right to be a member of a failing social order. 
Live under a tightening noose of control /ownership by the same selfish, heartless, and now, increasingly desperate elites, or what?. 
  The Deep states and media are the iron fist and velvet glove of that order.
. Ordinary Doctors, teachers, government employees, grocery clerks, garbage men and policemen follow orders and respect rules, like they always have. 
At what point does one have to choose a side? 
How soon can one choose a side, having determined what side to choose? 
The sooner the better, I suspect. 
  Proactively framing the question at my clinic, instead of awaiting an ultimatum, might be possible for me, with the Houston nurses in mind. 
I will take that path, now that the specific decision is clearly coming, likely this fall.
I will explicitly state my firm conviction to refuse "vaccination". 
(My reluctance to suggest it for any but the highest risk patients has been clear all along. The vaccine machine has been going around me, like a critter in the road.)

  I'd like to sound like Rod Sirling giving an introduction to a Twilight Zone episode, and get that eerie music cutting in. Thanks "Antidote".
(Deep states and owners  cannot make a system that works. They only make working systems fail by converting them to extraction and coercion.)
  The Wizard of Oz: The Dark Reality that TheDeep State hides from The Rest of the World., Andrew Korybko
​  ​Nothing is ever as it seems, especially when it comes to the modern world in which everyone lives. "There Are No Democracies Or Autocracies, Only Governments", I wrote last week, and they're all comprised of permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies, or "deep states", which handle matters largely considered (whether rightly or wrongly) to be beyond the responsibility of the average citizen. This power structure is allied with influential perception managers in the Mainstream Media and the education system in order to hide a very dark reality from everyone that's much more nefarious than what the Wizard of Oz hid from Dorothy...
  ​The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in what can be described as WorldWarC, or the full-spectrum paradigm-changing processes catalyzed by the world's uncoordinated attempt to contain the virus (again, whether or not one believes that it's real, fake, or exaggerated). All preexisting trends are now being accelerated and compressed, including the geopolitical, military, economic-industrial, information-communication, healthcare (genetic engineering), governmental ("socialist/"fascist"), and "green" ("depopulation") ones. This means that everyone is truly living in an unprecedented era of history whereby literally everything about life as they know it will be completely different within a decade. The very nature of international, economic, civil-state, and even human-to-human relations is transforming at a record pace, with folks either choosing to remain asleep like the "deep state" wants or wake up and peacefully try to stop them if it's even at all still possible to do so.

Financial Blowout Ahead: Lobotomized Economists Clash on the Deck of the Titanic​.  ​Matthew Ehret
​  ​Under the new world order of “stakeholder capitalism” citizens will learn to own nothing and be happy​.
​  ​As the geniuses running the western financial bubble sometimes called an “economy” continue to double down on their obsession to pump a dead financial system with ever more trillions in stimulus spending, arguments are raging among brainwashed economists living in denial over the oncoming systemic collapse. The thought of engineers on the Titanic passionately arguing over whether they should accelerate or decelerate the speed of the boat whose hull has long been torn to shreds by an iceberg comes to mind.​..
  Among the many goals of the Trilateral Commission laid out Brzezinski in his 1970 Manifesto “Between Two Ages” was the need to drive the transition of society towards what Brzezinski referred to as the “technetronic era” saying:
​  ​“The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.”...
​  The COVID Pandemic did not “cause” the current systemic crisis as many fools have parroted for over a year, but has merely served as cover to obscure the real systemic causes of the long-awaited collapse and accelerate the controlled disintegration of the system as the world is prepared to transition into a “new technetronic age” which has come to be dubbed a “Great Reset” or “Fourth Industrial Revolution”.​...
​ As former Bank of England head Mark Carney recently wrote of the new age of “net zero” in his new book Values Building a Better World for All, (which many of recognized as a precursor to his replacement for Canada’s Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister):
​  ​“It could be generations before the gains of the fourth industrial revolution are widely shared. In the interim, there could be a long period of technological unemployment sharply rising inequalities and intensifying social unrest”.
https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2021/06/13/financial-blowout-ahead-lobotomized-economists-clash-on-deck-of-titanic/

​  Note that Carney's suggestion is not to replace the power and ownership structure that created the problem, but to enforce societal austerity and strict control of humans-without-rights.​
​  ​In his book Value(s): Building a Better World for All, Mark Carney, former governor both of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England, claims that western society is morally rotten, and that it has been corrupted by capitalism, which has brought about a “climate emergency” that threatens life on earth. This, he claims, requires rigid controls on personal freedom, industry and corporate funding.
​  ​Carney’s views are important because he is UN Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance. He is also an adviser both to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the next big climate conference in Glasgow, and to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

This makes it sound like it might take 50 years to agree on the electronic digital vaccination passports that we all need and want so badly. 
I bet it won't. I'm not going to have this kind of passport in this life. Thanks Jeremy.
 ​The pandemic has heightened digital transformation in nearly every aspect of our lives, from remote work to online shopping, and now digital vaccine passports. Vaccine passports are not a new idea. The World Health Organization has used the Carte Jaune (Yellow Card) since the 1930s as an international standard for proof of vaccination that your primary care physician can sign for you. It’s even still used today for certain vaccines like yellow fever, rubella and cholera. However, the Carte Jaune has always been a physical piece of paper, easy to lose and not impossible to counterfeit.
  As such, many of the proposed vaccine passports seek to update the Cart Jaune to a digital version that’s harder to lose and counterfeit.

Jim Kunstler: (Tony Fauci is an upper level deep state functionary, nothing else.)
​  ​Ordinarily, vaccines that produce a very few cases of dangerous side-effects are held back from distribution. But under the emergency declaration for Covid-19, the mRNA “vaccines” are proffered even more aggressively. Through May, 2021, The Science (Dr. Fauci) presses to “vaccinate” as many Americans as can possibly be rounded up, including people who have recovered from Covid-19 and have developed their own natural antibodies.  Lately, The Science (Dr. Fauci) has militated for children and teenagers to get “vaccinated.”
​  ​Only, now it turns out that scores of “vaccinated” young people are showing up with inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis), otherwise extremely rare in that demographic. Say what, plus huh, plus WTF?
​  ​Does it not seem as if The Science (Dr. Fauci) has lurched from one blunder to the next, while also withholding the truth from the public, lying about the origin of the disease, and its (his) role in the development of the “vaccines,” and now rather desperately, it seems, trying to cover its (his) ass?
https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/struggle-session/

​Should You Get Vaccinated?​Lots of detailed and useful information here. Lots.
​  ​I always get vaccinated. I have been fully vaccinated with the Moderna COVID vaccine. My three daughters have all been vaccinated.
​  ​I recently learned that these vaccines have killed over 25,800 Americans and disabled at least 1,000,000 more. And we’re only halfway to the finish line. We need to PAUSE these vaccines NOW before more people are killed.
​  ​Based on what I now know about the miniscule vaccine benefits (approximately a .3% reduction in absolute risk), side effects (including death), current COVID rates, and the success rate of early treatment protocols, the answer I would give today to anyone asking me for advice as to whether to take any of the current vaccines would be, “Just say NO.”
​  T​he current vaccines are particularly contraindicated if you have already been infected with COVID or are under age 20. 
For these people, I would say “NO! NO! NO!”

​  ​The Republican proposal is simple: every American will automatically receive a pre-loaded syringe in the mail, along with a COVID vaccine card. Individuals will then self-administer the vaccine and self-report their vaccination status, all from the comfort of their own homes.

Sacrifice Your Children

 Sensible Parents,


Ilargi at The Automatic Earth leads with some clarifying facts. 
The kids are much safer without these shots, much safer on their own, as COVID-19 becomes endemic.
The Ethics of Child Vaccinations
​ If your chance of survival is 99.99996%, there is no risk. And you don’t need to be inoculated. That would -at best- be equivalent to keeping your kids home 24/7 because you are afraid of what might happen in traffic, or in social life with other kids, or some bogeyman. The risk is never zero, but close enough that we do not act on it, and call it common sense.
​  ​The arguments that are usually used are that 1) kids must be jabbed to protect others around them, and 2) that the vaccines have been tested and proven safe. Obviously, 1) is very curious, and never been used before, and 2) is simply a lie: vaccines need years of testing for side effects, not months, and certainly not weeks, as is now the case for the effects on children...
​  ​1,5 million adverse reactions, and those are just the ones that have been reported. Now, I don’t know how many people in Europe have been inoculated, but I bet you this is not a 99.99996% success story. The numbers of deaths are not, either.

The COVID Aesthetic. Thanks Jeremy.​
​  ​If the Covid experience is indeed an aesthetic experience, the impotence of our counter arguments, our practical concerns and our personal pains is certainly explained very well. Those we wish to convince to change their minds are not using their minds; those we wish to share our concerns do not have concerns; those we wish to feel our distress cannot see us or our distress: they are caught up in a kind of satisfaction – occasioned by the concerted responses of governments and populations to an invisible global attack – that is comprised of a heady sense of profound community, of fellow feeling on a universal scale. We cannot touch this experience with our facts and our projects and our pains. At the very most, we can only threaten to puncture its ecstasy; insofar as we do that, we are batted away as an inconvenient distraction.

​The dude has one refuge left, "patriotism"​.
Fauci blasted for ‘dangerous arrogance’ as he compares criticism of him to ‘attacks on science’

​This is the bigger Spanish calcifediol (active vitamin-D) study. Same results as the smaller one last year with 76 patients.
Conclusions
In patients hospitalized with COVID-19, calcifediol treatment significantly reduced ICU admission and mortality.

Some people ​(where do they get their information?) ​grudgingly acknowledge that having had COVID "might be almost as good as vaccination".
The immune systems of more than 95% of people who recovered from COVID-19 had durable memories of the virus up to eight months after infection.
The results provide ​HOPE​ that people receiving SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will develop similar lasting immune memories after vaccination.

​So only about half got stolen and sent out of the country?
​  As much as half of the unemployment benefits paid by the US government over the past year may have been stolen through fraud, with the bulk ultimately ending up outside the country - likely into the hands of foreign crime syndicates in China, Nigeria, Russia and elsewhere, according to Axios' Felix Salmon.
  According to some estimates, unemployment fraud during the pandemic could 'easily reach $400 billion,' as states weren't prepared for the unprecedented wave of unemployment claims.

​Russians are laughing.
 US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that he aims to make clear to Russia and China that the United States, the European Union, and the G7 are united in their position and will act.
"Strengthening the alliance, make it clear to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and to China that Europe and the United States are tight, and the G7 is going to move," Biden told reporters answering a question about the goal of his trip to Europe.

Who might have more to lose with a financial-system hack-attack, leading to breakdown, and blamed on "Russian state hackers"? We may soon see.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken in an appearance on "Axios on HBO" previewed what he expects to come out of the Putin-Biden summit set for June 16 in Geneva. The short answer is: not much except for vague warnings and threats, it appears. Blinken said during the interview that the US president intends to warn Putin "directly and clearly what he can expect from the United States if aggressive, reckless actions toward us continue."

Going Viral

 Future's So Bright,


  Parallels are being drawn between Cyber Polygon https://www.weforum.org/projects/cyber-polygon  "warning" of viral cyber attack on international digital finance with "COVID-19 characteristics", and Event 201 in October 2019. Event 201 warned of a global novel coronavirus pandemic threat, which may have leaked out in June of that year.  https://www.johndayblog.com/2021/06/fort-detrick.html 
​ 
​  ​It looks like SARS-CoV-2 virus was already on the loose in the US, Wuhan-Games, France and Italy (at least) by the time Event 201 was held, so if one assumes similar staging, then the fall of the dollar-denominated-western-empire is already underway.
I’m not saying you should not hold some cash. I think you should, and should have good relations with the places where you get your needs met and contribute to the needs of others, and ride a bike, and grow vegetables.
You already know my approach.

​  ​Supporting evidence is that (patient, prudent) Russians are now openly scorning the puppet-leaders of the western empire, and frontally attacking the dollar, while giving openings for negotiated settlements, at the same time.
​  ​Russian authorities are planning to shift the nation’s currency liquidity from the US dollar to the euro, the country’s Finance Ministry announced on Monday.
“Our number one goal is to turn Russia into a euro-oriented country, thus to replace the dollar with the euro,” said Dmitry Timofeev, head of the department of external restrictive measures control at the Russian Finance Ministry.​  ​
https://www.rt.com/business/525902-russia-dumps-dollar-for-euro/

​  ​Look at the elegance, please.
The ​Atlantacists (US/UK/etc.) have​ strained to keep EU and Russia separated since the collapse of the USSR.
First, the EU was going to share in the pillage and plunder, and it did, but when Russia reasserted autonomy under Putin, the pillage tapered to residuals on debt.
Lately, the US has been straining mightily to keep the (energy-buying) EU separated from next door energy exporting Russia, which is just not possible, if Germany is to maintain production and pricing, and Europeans of modest means are to survive the winters.
​  ​The last decade of wars has been fought, at least partly, to control the oil and gas flows to industrial Europe. Blocking Iranian oil/gas and Russian gas/oil, while substituting other sources, controlled by the US military, has failed, despite massive injuries to Iraq, Syria, Iran and Ukraine.​ The US is clearly losing dominance.​

​  ​Flipping those tables, Russia positions to destroy the petro-$ by ceasing dollar trade of oil. Russia would really like to use the Euro, and basically join the EU in some way, splitting Europe from NATO military diktats, and forming a much more powerful European alliance, based on local geography and meeting of local needs, while North America does whatever, grows corn, rebuilds infrastructure, beats swords into plowshares…

​  ​Just imagine the flip from petro-buck to petro-Euro, Eurasian integration in an augenblick (blink of eye). The Russian Central Bank​ ​​already​ took part in Cyber-Polygon ​(massive hacking attack on central banking WEF wargame) ​last summer. ​Russian finance​ clearly under threat from the west. They kept muddling through, and making all those inferior Russian products, and getting some stuff from China, and now they are not apparently threatened at all by elimination from dollar-denominated trade, so the dollar must be threatened as global reserve currency, so yes, hold more as cash. (Yes, ​crazy-world.)

​Biden (his handlers) really have a lot of patching-up to do with relations in Europe, not even considering Rusia, as power relations must become more even-handed.
  President Joe Biden and his European Union counterparts will commit to ending outstanding trade battles next week at an EU-US summit in Brussels on June 15, as globalists eager to get back to 'business as usual' seek to unravel tariffs related to a steel and aluminum conflict which came to a head under the Trump administration - contributing to over $18 billion in US and EU exports subject to steep levies.
  According to Bloomberg, which has seen a draft of the conclusions, the allies will agree to resolve disagreements - including a nearly two-decade old aircraft dispute which involves illegal government aid provided to Airbus and Boeing - before July 11. In advance of the agreement, US and EU leaders have agreed to suspend aircraft tariffs until July ahead of the pending settlement.

​  ​Charles Hugh Smith sent this claptrap from the Fed https://www.federalreserve.gov/econres/notes/feds-notes/preconditions-for-a-general-purpose-central-bank-digital-currency-20210224.htm​  ​,about what the essential requirements for a central bank digital currency for the US would be and who would have to sign on. Notice that the real-stakeholders, the Buffet-Bezos-Gates-Soros crowd are not on the list. It’s a lie. It sounds like they don’t have it worked out yet, but smaller banks (than the Fed) will sort of get cut out to keep the central banks in bidness.
One point​ it makes​ is that Federal Reserve Notes are a central bank liability, whereas other things are not. Holding FRNs gives one a bit more autonomy, makes one a little more like a real person, a central bank. That doesn’t go very far, but people are in the habit (supremely important) of accepting FRNs as “cash”; don’t have to give it a second thought. Some of us remember stagflation, but it all happened in $US for Americans. It’ll happen again.
Now is a bad time to buy lumber. It’s 4 times usual $ price. maybe it’ll be half that next year. Probably one should be counter-trending with $US, and not be time pressured if it can be avoided. Chinese window-unit air conditioners still seem to be cheap, even the better ones. We got the last one at the medium price at the Yoakum grocery store yesterday. It works fine. ​It needs electricity.
We got the kitchen floor repaired and I spent about 10 hours in the humidity gardening and pushing a good-little-Honda mower.​ 
We just keep plugging away, even when we can't really keep up with things. 
Accomplishments come as sudden surprises, but they come sometimes.​

Like Charles Hugh Smith has said, “work on plan-C”.
I was mulling this over while I pushed the mower. Plan to have options and recourse in scenario-C, a scenario of ​Great Depression​ type collapse/reset. 
Maybe all the ​study, thought​, vegetable gardening and communicating with other prepper​s​ will be good for us.
​(​Be on good terms with God and Man…​)

​  ​One thing that is increasingly important for me is to have a working understanding of what we need as a baseline to survive and to thrive, so that I can be of assistance and offer counsel, advice and a demo, if called upon some day.​ This is not so grand. One cannot understand vegetable gardening through the seasons in the abstract, without some years and seasons of necessary improvisation and adaptation.​ Maybe I won't be called upon, so I'll just have a good food producing homestead. It's a nice thing. People do admire the project as it is progressing in fits and starts. There is a human archetype around keeping a productive and healthy vegetable garden and or orchard. There is natural resonance within people.

How America went from Mom-and-Pop Capitalism to Techno-Feudalism (so what's next?)
​  ​On the economic front,  global lockdowns eliminated competition from small and medium-sized businesses, allowing monopolies and oligopolies to grow. “The biggest loser from all this is the middle class,” wrote Logan Kane on Seeking Alpha. By May 2020, about one in four Americans had filed for unemployment, with over 40 million Americans filing jobless claims; and 200,000 more businesses closed in 2020 than the historical annual average. Meanwhile, US billionaires collectively increased their total net worth by $1.1 trillion during the last 10 months of 2020; and 46 people joined the billionaire class.

​Michael Snyder observes:​  (Cars don't actually need computer chips. Remember the Pinto? America could make its own Yugos, little trucks and vans.)
​  ​Many of the imbalances that are contributing to the nightmarish shortages that we are currently witnessing are not going to be solved any time soon.  Ever since I started The Economic Collapse Blog, I have been warning that outsourcing the production of just about everything and running massive trade deficits year after year would eventually have very serious consequences down the road.  Well, now we are officially “down the road”, and our incredibly foolish trade policies have put us in a very precarious position.  During the “good times”, being extremely dependent on the rest of the world to make stuff for us wasn’t a problem, but now it is rapidly becoming a national security issue.
​  ​For example, without a steady flow of computer chips, our society as it is formulated today simply could not function.  We need computer chips for our vehicles, for the trucks that transport all of our goods, for the farm equipment that produces our food, for the extremely sophisticated equipment in our hospitals and for the millions upon millions of electronic devices that connect to the Internet.
​  ​The global chip shortage has been a very painful reminder of how exceedingly dependent we have become on technology, and it has also shown us how unwise it was to outsource production of most of our chips to Asia.
​  ​Back in 1990, the United States produced 37 percent of all computer chips in the world.
Today, that number has fallen to just 12 percent.

WHO Celebrates as Indian Health Regulator removes Ivermectin from it's COVID-19 Protocol​  
After India finally gets somewhat of a grip on its deadly second wave, one of its health regulators just took away one of its main lines of defense.
​  ​India’s Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has executed a policy reversal that could have massive implications for the battle against covid-19, not only in India but around the world. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives, are at providing stake. Providing no explanation whatsoever, the DGHS has overhauled its COVID-19 treatment guidelines and removed almost all of the repurposed medicines it had previously recommended for treating asymptomatic and mild cases. They include the antibiotic doxycycline, hydroxychloroquine zinc, ivermectin and even multivitamins. The only medicines that are still recommended for early treatment are cold medicines, antipyretics such as paracetamol and inhaled budesonide.
​  ​“No other covid-specific medication [is] required,” say the new guidelines, which also discourage practitioners from prescribing unnecessary tests such as CT scans.

​  ​EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak – who collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on research funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease – appears to boast about the manipulation of “killer” SARS-like coronaviruses carried out by his “colleagues in China” in a clip unearthed by The National Pulse.

​From The Conservative Woman: Serious considerations for parents. Group approval or protect your children?
​  We do know that the vaccines produce a range of cardiovascular and neurological events including strokes, myocarditis, pericarditis and paralysis in a significant number of people. In the small US state of Connecticut at least 18 children and young adults have come down with myocarditis, an extremely serious and sometimes fatal condition involving inflammation of the heart muscle (and they’ve only just started vaccinating children there). The Israel Ministry of Health has reported that the incidence of myocarditis for vaccine recipients is between 1 in 3,000 and 1 in 6,000 in young men.
  In Canada (population 38 million) only 11 children have died from Covid since the start of the pandemic. In the UK (pop 68 million) 32 children have died. It is nearly certain that all of them had one or more severe comorbidities. The fact is, most children brush off Covid without even knowing they’ve had it. For all intents and purposes, Covid poses zero risk to healthy children.
  It is clear that for children the risk of death or injury from the vaccine is at least an order of magnitude greater than the risk of death or injury from the virus. So since herd immunity or zero Covid is clearly an impossible goal, why in God’s name are we subjecting our children to the risk of death or life-changing injury? I’ll tell you why: Because this really isn’t about health at all. It’s being driven mostly by two things: the profit motives of Big Pharma and Big Tech, and a cult-like religious movement in which masking and vaccinations are the sacraments by which one demonstrates their virtue.

​Peter McCullough MD discusses the deaths from vaccination, adverse events, and why he can no longer recommend any of the current COVID-19 vaccination products to his patients.

Under 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported in the USA, for reasons Dr. McCullough explains, and I confirm.
Latest VAERS Data Show: 5,165 Deaths Reported Following COVID Vaccines
VAERS data released today showed 294,801 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 5,165 deaths and 25,359 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 28, 2021.
https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/vaers-data-deaths-reported-following-covid-vaccines/

There has been clear evidence of numerous laboratory manipulations of the SARS-CoV-2 genome since late February 2020. Here is that wheel partly rediscovered.
​  ​The two pieces of evidence led Quay and Muller to conclude that the possibility that COVID-19 was engineered should be viewed as the leading theory.
​  ​“The presence of the double CGG sequence is strong evidence of gene splicing, and the absence of diversity in the public outbreak suggests gain-of-function acceleration,” they wrote. “The scientific evidence points to the conclusion that the virus was developed in a laboratory.”


​"Vaccine Reluctant" are unlikely to want COVID vaccines going forward. (Yeah, that's me, for sure!)
​  As of the May 18-23 survey, 60% of U.S. adults report they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, 4% have been partially vaccinated, 12% plan to be vaccinated and 24% do not plan to be vaccinated.
  Among those not planning to be vaccinated, 78% say they are unlikely to reconsider their plans, including 51% who say they are "not likely at all" to change their mind and get vaccinated. That leaves one in five vaccine-reluctant adults open to reconsidering, with 2% saying they are very likely and 19% saying they are somewhat likely to change their mind and get vaccinated -- equivalent to 5% of all U.S. adults.


​  ​Scientists from the Cleveland Clinic, USA, have recently evaluated the effectiveness of coronavirus disease 2019 COVID-19) vaccination among individuals with or without a history of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.
​  ​The study findings reveal that individuals with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection do not get additional benefits from vaccination
, indicating that COVID-19 vaccines should be prioritized to individuals without prior infection. The study is currently available on the medRxiv* preprint server.

He did not appear to have COVID-19, just multi organ failure with positive spike-protein-sensing  tests on most of his corpse.

Obviously, that mRNA did not degrade, and kept pumping spike protein into his blood, and killed his poor organs.

  First case of postmortem study in a patient vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2  
  A previously symptomless 86-year-old man received the first dose of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. He died 4 weeks later from acute renal and respiratory failure. Although he did not present with any COVID-19-specific symptoms, he tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 before he died. Spike protein (S1) antigen-binding showed significant levels for immunoglobulin (Ig) G, while nucleocapsid IgG/IgM was not elicited. Acute bronchopneumonia and tubular failure were assigned as the cause of death at autopsy; however, we did not observe any characteristic morphological features of COVID-19. Postmortem molecular mapping by real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed relevant SARS-CoV-2 cycle threshold values in all organs examined (oropharynx, olfactory mucosa, trachea, lungs, heart, kidney and cerebrum) except for the liver and olfactory bulb. These results might suggest that the first vaccination induces immunogenicity but not sterile immunity.

Miscalculations

 Gamers With Skin,


U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa announced that American B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers accompanied by military aircraft from twenty-one other NATO nations flew over all 30 NATO member states today. Those would include the five that border Russia – Norway, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – of course.
The B-52s (designed to carry nuclear weapons during the Cold War), like their fellow nuclear-capable long-range bombers the B-1 and B-2, started deployment to Europe in 2018 under the aegis of the Pentagon’s Bomber Task Force...

WHY DANIEL ELLSBERG WANTS THE U.S. TO PROSECUTE HIM UNDER THE ESPIONAGE ACT
Ellsberg explains why he hopes the courts take on the law used to crack down on whistleblowers.

  “The whole idea is to kill the bastards,” Gen. Thomas Power, commander of America’s nuclear forces from 1957 to 1963, once said about the use of atomic weapons. “At the end of the war, if there are two Americans and one Russian, we win.” The hold this nuclear lunacy had on the top of the U.S. government is terrifyingly illuminated in a top-secret study of U.S. war plans newly publicized by famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg. The document, produced by the RAND Corporation and copied by Ellsberg at the same time he exfiltrated the Pentagon Papers from RAND, examines the U.S. response to the 1958 Taiwan Strait Crisis.   The study’s contents were first reported on May 22 by the New York Times.
  The crisis, now completely forgotten, began when China attempted to seize several small islands off its coast from Taiwan. The study shows American generals enthusiastically planning for the use of nuclear weapons against China. It is not simply that the officials looked with equanimity on the possibility of killing millions; rather, many seemed frustrated that there were any delays forced upon them by the rest of the government...   
“You shouldn’t be confident that the current calculations are any less crazy,” Ellsberg said. His apprehension about the potential use of nuclear weapons is intimately linked to another of his key concerns: the Justice Department’s accelerating use of the 1917 Espionage Act to prosecute leakers.​                                          ​https://theintercept.com/2021/06/01/daniel-ellsberg-china-atomic-nuclear-weapons/

Russia Forming 20 New Military Units To 'Counter NATO' Near Western Border  On Monday Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced decisions reached in a meeting with top military officials which mark a continued significant escalation with NATO. The Associated Press described of his statements, "He pointed to a growing number of flights by U.S. strategic bombers near Russia's borders, deployments of NATO warships and increasingly frequent and massive drills by alliance forces."​ ​https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-forming-20-new-military-units-counter-nato-near-western-border

Russia may be cut off from SWIFT banking payment system as part of West's ‘spiral of sanctions,’ warns country's foreign ministry​  ​
​  ​Russian banks may be blocked from using SWIFT, a payment system that enables reliable and secure financial transactions, as part of restrictions against Moscow, in what one official has called a potential “spiral of sanctions.”
​  ​“It's no secret that there are threats, primarily from the United States, to disconnect Russia from the SWIFT system,” said Dmitry Birichevsky, director of the Economic Cooperation Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Russia's $186 Billion Sovereign Wealth Fund Dumps All Dollar Assets​  ...  
GULP!​  It's almost time, now...​
​  ​Following a series of corporate cyberattacks that American intelligence agencies have blamed on Russian actors, Russia's sovereign wealth fund (officially the National Wellbeing Fund) has decided to dump all of its dollars and dollar-denominated assets in favor of those denominated in euros, yuan - or simply buying precious metals like gold.

Desperate Netanyahu Threatens "Elimination" Of Iran Threat Even If "Friction" With US Results

Just as negotiators were preparing to meet in Vienna on Wednesday to wrap up the latest round of talks on reviving the Iran nuclear deal, Iran's largest warship caught fire Wednesday in the Gulf of Oman and sank under unclear circumstances.

​Charles Hugh Smith  (The productive economy in America was peaking in 1970, so workers got paid a lot more and mostly did more valuable tasks.)
Why the Minimum Wage Should Be $18/Hour
What does it say about our "prosperity" if we can't even afford to equal the purchasing power of the minimum wage paid 50 years ago?
It says the 1% got the mine and the bottom 90% got the shaft.
Given the rising prosperity we keep hearing about, shouldn't we be able to provide minimum wage workers the same purchasing power they enjoyed 50 years ago in 1970?

Email: Researcher Who Funded Wuhan Lab, Admitted To Manipulating Coronaviruses Thanked Fauci For Dismissing Lab Leak Theory
​oh...​
Fauci’s emails have been released via FOIA
​  ​“As the Pl of the ROl grant publicly targeted by Fox News reporters at the Presidential press briefing last night, I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
​  ​From my perspective, your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’ origins. Once this pandemic’s over I look forward thanking you in person and let you know how important your comments are to us all.

"Expect the Unexpected" Indeed - Fauci's Pandemic-Profiteering Book Was Just Pulled From Amazon, Barnes & Noble

  Countries, donors and multilateral institutions must be prepared for the worst. A rapidly spreading pandemic due to a lethal respiratory pathogen (whether naturally emergent or accidentally or deliberately released) poses additional preparedness requirements. Donors and multilateral institutions must ensure adequate investment in developing innovative vaccines and therapeutics, surge manufacturing capacity, broad-spectrum antivirals and appropriate non-pharmaceutical interventions. All countries must develop a system for immediately sharing genome sequences of any new pathogen for public health purposes along with the means to share limited medical countermeasures across countries.  

​  ​New research shows that the coronavirus spike protein from COVID-19 vaccination unexpectedly enters the bloodstream, which is a plausible explanation for thousands of reported side-effects from blood clots and heart disease to brain damage and reproductive issues, a Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week.
​  ​“We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario, in an interview with Alex Pierson last Thursday, in which he warned listeners that his message was “scary.”
​  ​“We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin,” Bridle said on the show, which is not easily found in a Google search but went viral on the internet this weekend.
​  ​Bridle, a vaccine researcher who was awarded a $230,000 government grant last year for research on COVID vaccine development, said that he and a group of international scientists filed a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency to get access to what’s called the “biodistribution study.”
​  ​“It’s the first time ever scientists have been privy to seeing where these messenger RNA [mRNA] vaccines go after vaccination,” said Bridle. “Is it a safe assumption that it stays in the shoulder muscle? The short answer is: absolutely not. It’s very disconcerting.”
​  ​Vaccine researchers had assumed that novel mRNA COVID vaccines would behave like “traditional” vaccines and the vaccine spike protein — responsible for infection and its most severe symptoms — would remain mostly in the vaccination site at the shoulder muscle. Instead, the Japanese data showed that the infamous spike protein of the coronavirus gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulated in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands, and in “quite high concentrations” in the ovaries.
​  ​“We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin. It can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation,” Bridle said.

​  ​Chinese researchers have achieved a new world record after scientists developing an “artificial sun” ran the device on Friday at a record-shattering temperature of 120 million degrees Celsius for over 100 seconds.
​  ​The experiment was held at the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ASIPP) in Hefei, China.
The exercise is a part of the China’s efforts to develop new clean energy sources through the development of next-generation nuclear fusion reactor technology.
​  ​Known as the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), the “Chinese artificial sun” managed to generate plasma temperatures of 120 million degrees Celsius for 101 seconds before scientists also realized a temperature of 160 million degrees Celsius for an additional 20 seconds.
​​T​​he goal of EAST is to create Sun-like energy using deuterium, a hydrogen isotope that is plentiful in the ocean and can provide a steady flow of clean energy.
