Powell For The People

 Frazzled By Now,

Brilliant idealistic lawyer, Sidney Powell does not represent Team Trump. (She clearly states these voting systems were used to rob Californians who voted for Sanders, and give them Clinton, instead.)
Sidney Powell represents the American voters, who have the constitutional right to cast their ballots and have them tallied correctly.
That's easy to like. I listened to the 20 minute radio interview with Ms Powell. 
This is a criminal case she is making about vote rigging.

​  ​I agree with the campaign's statement that I am not part of the campaign's legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.
​  ​My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may--whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.
​  ​The evidence I'm compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates.  We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week.  It will be epic.
​  ​We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country.
​  ​#WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  
​  ​You may assist this effort by making a non tax-deductible contribution to  #KrakenOnSteroids"​     [I did]

Here are the moving parts behind this approach:
1. The facts about Dominion and Smartmatic, above.
2. The strong statistical indication about voter fraud, also above.
3. Powell’s statement to Larry O’Connor on Friday that she represents the people, not the president:
4. The information that Michael Flynn Jr. and Lin Wood provided about the administration separating from Powell for financial reasons and her still being in the fight.

​  ​One week before the 2020 election PBS went to Georgia to do a deep dive of their Dominion Voting Systems. One of their experts, Harry Hursti from Nordic Innovation Labs, told PBS the Georgia system does not seem to have any safeguards. Georgia’s vote tabulating system was a complex system of laptops, ipads, magnetic cards, touch screens, printers and scanners. Investigators found several troubling issues before the election. One expert said it would be easy to du​p​licate the ballot codes and make up new ballots.

​  ​As the nation is focused on the lack of system security in the 2020 General Election, now comes news that not only did Dominion Voting Systems have access to the entirety of the Chicago voting system and database, they had that access for over half a year.
​  ​In a March 2020 video of an emergency meeting of the Chicago Election Board (CEB), that body approved a motion to provide Dominion Voting Systems the right and capability to remotely access their machines in an administrative role during the 2020 election.
​  ​Eric Coomer, the Director of Product Strategy & Security for Dominion Voting Systems, was a full participant on the call suggesting that, from the start, Dominion was the one running the elections in Chicago

​How, in space and time, ES&S voting software systems created an apparent vote in Philadelphia, and why the Libertarian candidate got so many votes there, while Trump and Biden got the same split with periodic adjustments​:
  "The ES&S System isolated a "Flip Set" from the expected vote count and the expected percentage.
It then splices the Flip Set into multiple "ratio sets" and assigns them to precincts throughout the day.
  Once a particular "ratio set" receives the votes it needed, it releases that set, and then ES&S injects it into the city wide count.
  To hide it's trail, ES&S reassigns the same "ratio set" to different (random) precincts throughout the day, so that the same precinct doesn't keep getting the exact same ratio (or the same set of precincts).
  During a particular period of time while a precinct is selected, it gives Trumps an EXACT NUMBER of votes, it gives Biden a MINIMUM number of votes, and splits the small remainder to a third party or to Biden (via random assignment)
  This explains why Jo Jorg got so many votes in every precinct (I'm a Libertarian and I know very few libertarians who voted for Jo this year, due to the importance of this monumental election)."

Dominion Voting Systems ‘Lawyers Up,’ Abruptly Backs Out of PA State House Fact-Finding Hearing

​Matthew Ehret looks at the strategic competition for the future between globalists and nationalists.
​  I​t is still impossible to state with 100% certainty that Joe Biden will in fact be inaugurated on January 20, 2021. The simple reason for this is that verifiable evidence of vast partisan vote fraud tied to the highest echelons of British Intelligence have mount with every passing day with Dominion voting systems most recently accused of erasing 2.7 million Trump votes across the nation, and giving 220 000 pro-Trump votes given to Biden in Pennsylvania (along with hundreds of other vote counting anomalies and technology glitches across all major swing states).​...
​  By now most people reading this are aware (or should be aware) that the trans Atlantic financial system has been set to melt down under a $1.5 quadrillion derivatives time bomb being held together by a mix of wishful thinking, hyperinflationary money printing and vast unpayable securitized debts waiting to default. It should also come as no surprise that the Great Reset Agenda designed to coordinate the “post-COVID world order” has nothing to do with any actual pandemic, and everything to do with imposing a new bankers’ dictatorship onto the nations of the earth.​..
​  ​Biden says that either: 1) Someone else takes America’s place as global hegemon that doesn’t “advance our interests and values or 2) “No one will and chaos will ensue”.
  ​But wait a minute!
​  ​Shouldn’t there be a third option in Biden’s crystal ball? What about the option of a world defined by sovereign nations working in win-win cooperation and mutual self interest?​...​
 ​  It​ is too easily forgotten that the UN Charter, as outlined by Franklin Roosevelt was premised on the belief that America must never become an empire but merely help those in need by providing the means of industrial development. This was essentially understood as the internationalization of the New Deal which included social safety nets, bank regulation, productive work guarantees and infrastructure projects to all other nations aspiring independence across Africa, Asia and the Americas or struggling the heal from the destructive effects of the war.
​  ​FDR’s vision for the IMF/World Bank mandates were never to reconquer poor nations under a new system of debt slavery and conditionalities, but to extend productive credit for long term megaprojects that were in the common aims of mankind and which angered Churchill immensely.
​  ​Most importantly, this vision was premised on the need for a trust-based U.S.-Russia-China alliance that never would have permitted the emergence of a bipolar Cold War.

​"Ending 'forever wars'":​ (Yeah, one war is all you really need, but it's spatially and temporally unrestricted, you see.)
​  ​Biden’s likely pick for Secretary of Defense, Michele Flournoy, and his top foreign policy advisor, Tony Blinken, have played central roles in every war waged by Democratic presidents dating back to the Clinton era
​  ​Under Bill Clinton, Flournoy was the principal author of the 1996 Quadrinellial Defense Review, the document that outlined the U.S. military’s doctrine of permanent war – what it called “full spectrum dominance.”
​  ​Flournoy called for “unilateral use of military power” to ensure “uninhibited access to key markets, energy supplies, and strategic resources.”

​The Ron Paul Institute has more detail on "Biden's Deep State" picks for top level political assignments. We know their work, already. Hubris.
​  ​Philosopher Hannah Arendt once wrote about the banality of evil, and there’s never been a more banal bunch than the foreign policy and security state crew Barak Obama surrounded himself with for eight years beside the possible exception of Bush's own Neocons.
​  ​Now after three years screaming about "Russian collusion" it appears the Evil Empire is about to regain its lost ground, championing new wars and more interventionist expansionism with a much greater role for the US military in the world.  

​Marc sends this paper about ivermectin vs hydroxychloroquine, when otherwise used with standard-care with things like zinc, high dose vitamin-C and NAC (aka: acetylcysteine)​
 A substantial improvement and reduction in mortality rate in Ivermectin treated groups; group I (mild/moderate cases), (99%, and 0.0%, respectively) and group III (severe cases), (94%, and 2.0% respectively) versus hydroxychloroquine plus standard care treated groups; group II (mild/moderate cases), (74% and 4%, respectively) and group IV (severe cases) (50% and 20%, respectively). Ivermectin had significantly reduced the incidence of infection in health care and household contacts up to 2% compared to 10% in non ivermectin group when used as a prophylaxis.

​  CDC statements regarding SARS-CoV-2 change like Texas weather, but most viral spread in aerosol from nose and mouth happens 2 days before to 2 days after onset of symptoms. Symptoms usually start mild, in nose and throat area.​
Most coronavirus cases are spread by people without symptoms, CDC now says

  ​The problem with PCR tests is that if you include enough cycles of amplification they will eventually turn something into a positive test result. To go past 30 cycles of amplification to get a positive creates a big majority of false positives at that "cycle threshold". It is robably not a clinically relevant positive if the lab has to go past 25 amplification cycles. A lot of labs go to 40, and just test whatever is there after 40 amplifications. That catches all the true positives that were there after 20 amplification​ cycles, and a lot of false positives created in the next 20 cycles. Our lab has not given me an answer about whether they can start reporting their cycle threshold numbers as part of the report.
Portuguese Court Rules PCR Tests “Unreliable” & Quarantines “Unlawful”Important legal decision faces total media blackout in Western world
​  ​An appeals court in Portugal has ruled that the PCR process is not a reliable test for Sars-Cov-2, and therefore any enforced quarantine based on those test results is unlawful.
​  ​Further, the ruling suggested that any forced quarantine applied to healthy people could be a violation of their fundamental right to liberty.

History's Next Rhyme

 Creating Our World,

  "Reset" wasn't previously a bad word, but now it's getting that way. I liked it because it was neutral and without a lot of baggage.
I want to use it neutrally at first, if I may.
We are a very effective species at getting our needs met. We communicate with each other, use tools, use tools and energy to make tools and harvest energy to make tools and energy and food.
And we communicate over vast stretches of time and distance now.
  Nothing can stand in our way but success, and the class of special humans that has arisen in the millennia preceding our births, the class of kings and nobles (and bankers, and the CIA, and so on). This special class of people swings into action to get rid of entire populations of humans when the population outgrows the food supply.
This helps our species continue living, moving, solving problems, growing food, finding water and fuel, and living.
  It is technically possible to work things out without these specialists in population reduction, but we are not used to it, and we have not really come to grips with the issue, itself. Each of us sees a small part of the great world, and few can grasp that all the people in a region have surpassed the ability of the region to feed them.
  This is a very unpopular topic, and strictly forbidden in most polite circles.
For me to suggest that the kings, lords, rulers and powerful functionaries have the useful purpose of killing a lot of people from time to time, without being seen to have done so, is not just unusual, and rude, but weird.
  Everybody knows that wars happen accidentally, or from bad guys, or religion, racism, misunderstandings, and things like that.
My thesis is simpler, that the cold hearted power elites use wars to kill off a bunch of people when the economy fails, and to induce the surviving people to work hard, doing what they are told to do for the good of their whole clan. 
Through this crisis response, a new economy is worked out. It is our way.

  I see this cycle of history as being different from the recent cycles we have studied in history, because the food supply we are now outpacing is more intricate, as it is driven by vast cheap energy to do almost all of the work, transport food thousands of miles to us, and to spend 10 calories of diesel energy equivalent for every calorie of food we eat. When diesel (and electricity, etc.) declines, we get poor, and when it declines more, we may break the economy that supports our lives, go through desperate hardship for indefinite periods of time, and even behave badly along the way. 
  Wars are already being imposed upon people who live on top of oil, forcing their economies into failure to support them. That keep their economies sitting on the oil, not using it. The kings and owners will need it. Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Venezuela all have a moderately good grasp of this dynamic. There is really no limit to the populations who have to do with less oil, through economic destruction, so the owners can keep the overall structure , their power structure, intact. That is of primary importance to them, and they make all the decisions. 
Glenn Greenwald points out his observation that the ruling coalition is composed of all those power figures who oppose withdrawing from the war in Afghanistan (which was justified only by lies, and was done for geopolitical reasons).
  Nuclear weapons change the old model, but the same tools of fear, panic, blaming the "enemy", and blind obedience because the family will die if you stop to ask questions, still apply. 
Joseph Mercola DO has this good article about "The Great Reset" leveraged off COVID-19. It's not a fake virus, but the fear factor is amplified 100 times over what would be promoted to society if "a great reset" were not at hand for structural reasons like finite oil being unable to catch up to infinitely leveraged debt bubbles, built on debt bubbles. People will have to give up property, privacy, freedom of speech and association, in order to fully submit to the new technocratic system (a high tech fascism, and China is ahead). I'm not a follower of Dr Mercola, but this article is right on, especially since he cuts and pastes long excerpts from "The Great Reset For Dummies" by Tessa (fights robots) Lena.

  I am certain this techno-fascism approach cannot work at the goal I see, which is to maximize the rich complexity of life on earth through enhancing complex ecosystems, not simplifying them. That's my view, and it is the opposite of the techno-fascists who seek to simplify life to monoculture systems which they control through genetic engineering, factory farms, and chemical inputs made in factories on the Texas gulf coast. For the ruling elites, all permission must come from them, from the top, otherwise they are losing power, "melting, melting..."
  My advocacy of the antithesis of this, maximizing the richness and complexity of life, which is typified by the Amazon rain forest, arose from my meditations and thoughts on "the meaning/purpose of life". My simplest and broadest take was that a sterile ball of metals , dirt and water receiving solar energy is the antithesis of life's goals. We all inherently understand that life is better, and more life is better-er. In the Amazon, the photosynthetic energy of 1 photon may click through a dozen life forms as that energy clicks down a tiny bit each time in the cascade of organisms giving to and feeding off other organisms and their left-overs. Using factory farming techniques, poisons like roundUp and DDT kill all life except the monorop, and it dies and is harvested, feeding only humans or cattle or pigs, then being processed into "food" to be bought and consumed one time by one person, whose waste goes into a landfill and a treatment plant. That reduces the dozen steps of the photon supporting life down to maybe 3, but you have to average that with the time the field sits bare and poisoned, with dead soil, just awaiting fertilizer and irrigation water.

  Self organizing complex living systems are way smarter and more adaptive than our tunnel vision narcissistic and sociopathic class of kings, spooks and bankers. 
My highest purpose in this value system is to be a steward of life. 
My approach to "The Great Reset" is to foster life in every nook and cranny, life that feeds me and helps me feed other life and keep feeding living cycles like compost heaps and worms and bees and birds (and , disappointingly, squirrels, raccoons, possums, and bucks who antler-shred my fruit trees in rutting season). I am just working this out as I go, seeking tricks that don't use poison and bullets. 
  I still drive. I still have lots of fossil fuel inputs to my vegetable gardens, but I am trying to limit them to initial investments, and find ways to move forward with complex life supporting me and an increasingly well balanced food growing ecosystem.
  I'm learning. I'm passing it on. I hope I am only beginning a process that will become wiser and more complex with passing generations, a renaissance of life, and orchestra and ballet of life, dancing life, complex and vivid and resilient.

 Revising Timeline,

Coronavirus infections were spreading in Italy in September 2019, which is before the Wuhan Games (global military olympics) in China, in mid October. Thanks Bob.
  A further SARS-CoV-2 antibodies test was carried out by the University of Siena for the same research titled “Unexpected detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in the pre-pandemic period in Italy”.
  It showed that four cases dating back to the first week of October were positive for antibodies, meaning they had got infected in September, Giovanni Apolone, a co-author of the study, told Reuters.

This supports the hypothesis that COVID-19 escaped from Ft. Detrick Maryland in June.

​  ​While one side of the unipolar world government agenda was driven by a view that the USA should forever be the primary global police force governing a zero sum system of perpetual war, with an unelected elite managing the system from above, the other side believed that the USA should surrender its claims to sovereignty to an international global body with unelected technocrats and financiers at the top managing the zero sum system of perpetual war from above.

It is not China alone. This “new majority” embraces leaders who come to power by the ballot box and those who didn’t, but who all share a preference for a nationalist foreign policy, the weakening of domestic institutions and the rule of law”

​  ​A clause in the budget would strip Budapest and Warsaw of billions of euros in EU funding if they don't impose certain measures to strengthen the "rule of law" as Brussels sees fit.

Revising Future History

Not Our Internet


I have been considering this overnight and pre-dawn, so as to give my best explanation.

 I studied intelligence and national security for a year , my third and final senior year at UT Austin in 1981-1982.
The teacher had worked at the US embassy in Moscow for some years. Interesting guy. Wouldn't spill beans.
Most signals intelligence analyzed is open-source. In those days TV, newspapers, newsletters and books.

 Radio feeds from behind enemy lines in a war zone, and hacking the NSA are different; unavailable to me.

 Knowing the interests and intentions of "adversaries" or "competitors" is important. 
Everything we see was paid for by somebody, for some reason, usually self interest, but not always. 
I try to find and post information in the interests of other humans and our living ecosystem (yes, that does serve me, too). 
I'm at some disadvantage,
The disadvantages shift with the tides of struggle between powerful parties and factions.

 I see the western financial empire as being overdue for a "correction", a correction that will recognize that exponential growth of economy is over, due to planetary limits of all sorts, and that energy inputs into economy will rapidly decrease, then keep decreasing as we go forward into less and less oil, coal and natural gas. 
This is not a new story. One counter to it is that it hasn't happened yet. 
It is clearly inevitable that fossil fuel use will fall off.
That won't happen for altruistic reasons of saving the planet.
The capitalist economic system cannot act altruistically. 
Digging and burning and killing faster wins every time.

  I do not have a ready replacement at hand. It has not been worked out at scale, only in much smaller groups of humans.
I took a political self analysis test online a few years ago; I'm not sure how to find it again. A friend sent it. I came out as "Left Libertarian" on  left-right, libertarian-authoritarian axes.
That's not a thing these days, is it?
It HAS been a thing in history, and almost certainly still is a thing in a few small rural communities in the world. 
The early Christians seem to have practiced left libertarianism, each giving what was possible and each receiving necessities of life. It does not scale up, because the next level of organization up from the proles takes a skim, and every level up from there also skims, and it is the prerogative of the upper levels to skim, which translates to "ownership", which is antithetical to the purpose of the communal organizing system.

 One comment I have seen, and I forget who said it, is that the commenter favored socialism/communism in the family, Democracy in the community, Republican government at the state level and Libertarianism at the national level.

 The flows of wealth and power work towards the absolute power of elites in the system, the "owners" increasing, until the system breaks from oppression, and there is revolution by the people who feel that the time has come to live free or die.

 The owners have a new tool, powered by electricity, connected to humans by laptops and smartphones, and with intelligence of its own. This tool allows the owners to program the system to show each human a certain picture, no matter where the human looks within the vast system. That picture becomes the model of reality for that human. 
 This tool has extended the current financial and economic regime by a lot, at least since 2008, right?

 The initial promise of the internet was that you could find anything you wanted to know, pretty quickly, for free, or the usual monthly subscription fee. A lot of content got uploaded all over the world, and there it was. In 2000 I had a eureka moment when I was able to find the phone number for the Yokosuka , Japan US Naval Hospital, and dial it directly from Austin Texas, when my Dad got admitted there. That had never been possible before. It is mundane now.
 Not too long after that my friend Joe's hi-fi hobbyist magazine, Sound Practices went bust. "Nobody wants to pay for content any more; I can't sell subscriptions", quoth Joe. Everybody who knew his mag missed it. 
You can find the issues online now, but no new content can be created. 
Amazon is booming.Google and Facebook rule.

 The internet appeared libertarian at first, but the hierarchy has tamed that impulse so that all information that used to travel laterally now goes to the very top, to be amplified, edited or deleted by artificial intelligence, before it comes back down to peer-to-peer-level. It appears to be a lateral share, but it is edited by AI based on algorithms which serve the top tier owners.
The editing and shaping is invisible, so we assume things are still as they were in the early 2000s. 
Everywhere we look we see variations on the same story, so that must be pretty close to what's really happening, right?

 That is how I come to be posting news about vote rigging in the 2020 election from various "right wing" sites, some with the look of low production value. All of the money at the top says that there is "nothing to see in this story; Biden won". 
 To me this looks like 9/11. No story at all, except some rumors at the fringes, the laws of physics suspended for a day, reporting a building fallen while it stood outside the window (WTC-7). 
Still, even in the earlier days of creating artificial reality it mostly worked. 
 By now, everybody has heard some version of the story that the World Trade Center was brought down by explosives in a controlled demolition, and that the attack on the Pentagon, which killed only the people investigating the missing trillions of dollars from the DoD budget was by a cruise missile, not a passenger plane.
 But the overarching narrative to justify the "Global War on Terror" had been established and the war had been prosecuted without much political resistance at home. Brown people in countries with easy to pump oil are mostly "terrorists". Their economies have to be destroyed so they won't use up the oil that free enterprise needs to promote democracy.

 What I assume about the elite power struggle now underway in the US, the seat of empire (more or less) is that at least two major factions are vying for control of the narrative and the political-economic levers of control as the system careens into collapse.
 There are "losses to assign". It's important to all participants how those losses get assigned from the almost-empty cookie jar.
I'm a participant. I know the cookie jar has mostly IOUs in it, and that the youth and economy of 2030 will not be able to supply to me the retirement which my generation has supplied to my parents. Retirement was predicated on something like 7% economic growth every year forever. The lack of growth has long been made up for by cannibalizing savings, and putting more IOUs in the cookie jar as cookies were removed and eaten.
 Still, I have a claim on "my" Social Security retirement benefits. I could exercise that option now, and get something today, under the current system, or I can keep working as long as it is possible for me to work. 
 Jeff Bezos has a lot of claims on global wealth now and going forward. In a reset of political-economy on a global scale, my modest claim competes with the claims of Jeff Bezos. 
Jeff directly works the levers of political power. He gets to be at the table which assigns losses in the world. I am not at that table. While I still work, I am a small part of a productive economic system. 
 When I retire, I become a "useless eater" to Jeff and the others deciders at the table.
I will deplete systemic wealth  in my retirement, which will leave less for Jeff's competing claims on real wealth. 
It is in the interest of Jeff Bezos to keep his wealth-draw hidden, and point out to younger working people that they are supporting older retirees lavishly, while they, themselves, almost starve, saddled with debt.

 I expect Jeff Bezos to be doing exactly what benefits his interests, which is carving out as much of global wealth for himself, for him to control and expand, as possible. I expect him to keep doing this. 
I expect Jeff to use the internet to further his interests, and The Washington Post.  
I expect Jeff to have AI-driven PR and buy politicians.

 I'm a peaceful guy. 
What does Jeff expect me to do to further my interests, in competition with his interests, when I am old and can no longer keep a job?
 I'm not much of a threat, but Jeff does need the economy to keep going, and recognizing his claims on wealth. 
Without the economy, Jeff has no wealth.

 Losses still need to be assigned in such a way that there is broad participation in political-economy, or the goose will be dead, and will lay no golden eggs at all.
 Those who currently control the workings of western global economy will continue to simulate reality for us through AI, and to limit our unfiltered lateral communications with each other, when AI sees that we are joining together in our own ("populist") interests, against their elite interests.
 The flaw in their control strategy is their own compulsive drive to always get more at the expense of every other participant in the system. Their inability to relinquish any personal wealth in the interest of systemic health kills the system, same as last time. 

 FDR dealt with this. Many of his class (Bushes, Harrimans, Dulles family) saw him as a class traitor. They tried twice to kill him before he was inaugurated. Then there was the military coup that Smedly Butler outed when they asked him to lead it.
Fascism was a right-totalitarian movement of the day and communism was a left totalitarian movement in competition. 
Labor unions started as more communitarian, but became more authoritarian as they grew larger and less local.

 Is Trump a class-traitor in the same way FDR was?
I can't say whether he is or isn't yet, but I don't see any other candidates auditioning for that role, either.
Bernie Sanders is still trying to play a supporting role, but he has twice accepted DNC vote-rigging without a whimper.
Bernie would have twice been the popular Democratic Party candidate for POTUS, and would likely have won.

 Why is Donald Trump still drawing breath? It's pretty easy for the powerful to kill somebody these days, and even make it look like somebody else did the deed. 
Does anybody who has studied the "science" believe that Lee Oswald killed JFK with a "magic bullet"?

 President Donald must also have powerful backers, with the ability to protect him. That's a lot of power. It has to include some faction within the military industrial (spook) complex. That faction appears to be nationalist, not globalist. We get a lot of propaganda against "nationalism" and "populism", generally calling them "fascism" and "racism".

 The "left" was the driving moral force against the Vietnam war, but it lost that energy, lost it somewhere in the 1980s, I think.
Now we have this weird pro-war left that doesn't want to see the burned babies, but will sign off on it as long as they don't see it.
As long as the paychecks keep coming, we will all keep complying with the directives in our inboxes.
We are not prepared at all for anything else. We have no backup plan for economic collapse. 
We are well trained to comply.

How will we survive if compliance no longer feeds us? 
That's a hypothetical question I've asked myself a lot in recent years.

Maybe you can help. 
I'm just trying to get information for us to use, and the most important stuff is often the hardest to get, because it's not "our" internet.

Wars Inside Bodies


Tom Luongo on the color revolution being carried out in the US. Thanks Eleni in Athens.
  Act III of a color revolution is the most dangerous. It is the one where chaos can reign for months and the balance tipped by the slimmest of margins. But in the end it always comes down to the willingness of the people to decide their future.
Because taking down the U.S. is such a monumental undertaking they had to create a problem global in scale, COVID-19.
  The U.S. has everything against it in this situation. The oligarchy and its quislings are firmly in command of the narrative. There are real, deep divisions to keep people fighting each other while the oligarchs proceed with their plans.
  Trump is trying to marshal a counter-revolution on the ground and in the courts.

​  ​Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, a Trump campaign lawyer, suggested in a Sunday interview that there is still more evidence coming out in President Donald Trump’s claims of voter fraud and irregularities.
“We’re getting ready to overturn election results in multiple states,” Powell said, saying that she has enough evidence of election fraud to launch a widespread criminal investigation.
​  “I don’t make comments without having the evidence to back it up,” she added, saying that elections software switched “millions of votes” from Trump to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
​  ​Powell notably provided legal counsel to Gen. Michael Flynn in 2019. 
She was named to Trump’s legal team in the past several days.
​  Powell said a whistleblower came forward and said the elections software was designed to “rig elections,” saying that “he saw it happen in other countries,” referring to voting systems Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, or perhaps other software and machines.
​  ​“We have so much evidence, I feel like it’s coming in through a fire hose,” Powell said, while noting that she won’t reveal the evidence that she has.
​  ​“They can stick a thumb drive in the [voting] machine, they can upload software to it even from the Internet … from Germany or Venezuela even,” she said, adding that operations “can watch votes in real-time” and “can shift votes in real-time,” or alleged bad actors can “remote access anything.”
​  ​“We’ve identified mathematically the exact algorithm they’ve used—and planned to use from the beginning” that allegedly switched votes to Biden, Powell remarked.​..
​  ​The Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity agency issued a statement on Thursday calling the 2020 general election the “most secure in American history​.​

EXCLUSIVE: How a Philly mob boss stole the election — and why he may flip on Joe Biden
​  ​But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden.  The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work.  They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

​Dominion voting bug may have infected Georgia's vote counts, too. The hand recount will tell for sure.​

"I Concede Nothing": Trump Blasts "Fake News Media" For Saying He Conceded To Biden

​  ​"We are moving forward here at the White House under the assumption that there will be a second Trump term...we think he won that election," Navarro said earlier, adding that any "speculation" about what Joe Biden might do is moot at this point.

​  ​Trump's new Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller sent a late Friday memo to the entire Department of Defense workforce signaling what the administration will be up to in Trump's last weeks in office — a likely major US troop reduction, especially from the Middle East.  
​ "We are not a people of perpetual war - it is the antithesis of everything for which we stand and for which our ancestors fought," Miller said in the memo, and emphasized that "All wars must end."
​  ​"Ending wars requires compromise and partnership. We met the challenge; we gave it our all. Now, it's time to come home."​///
​  Over the past years especially in the case of Syria, the president was met with fierce military and intelligence community pushback every time he tried to bring to the troops home. Will he be the president that finally withdrew all troops from Afghanistan and Syria, or possibly even Iraq?

Fighting words from Jim Quinn:
​  ​Make no mistake. There was a master plan implemented by dark forces to steal this election, overriding the will of the American people. The anger of 70 million Americans is perfectly captured in the above quote from Mencken. If Trump and his allies are unable to prove fraud and overturn this sham of an election, myself and millions more will treat the Kamala Harris administration as illegitimate and do everything in our power to resist and insure its failure.

Jim Kunstler discusses some of the clearly graphed statistical evidence for electronic vote rigging, when it started, and how much.
The Worm In The Machine
​  ​The very same plotline is repeated in several other Michigan counties heavily trending for the president in early voting and then swooning mysteriously for Mr. Biden after a four-hour break in action. How to account for this strange occurrence? The worm in the machine, perhaps: a simple algorithm (i.e., set of coded instructions) embedded in the Dominion vote tabulation software.

George Galloway: Kiss of death – The winner of the most coveted Henry Kissinger endorsement is... Joe Biden​  (RUSSIA Today)

Watch This!  Dmitry Orlov (Russian)
​  ​T​​here are times in my career as a collapse observer and systematizer when my running commentary can quite reasonably be pared down to just two words: “Watch this!” The current severe stage of the financial and economic collapse sequence that was initiated in 2008, which is being artificially masked (no pun intended) by the fake Covid “pandemic,” and now a hung and fraudulent US election on top of it is just such an occasion​.​..
   Let’s start with a quick jaunt down memory lane. I first realized that the USA was going to follow the general trajectory of the USSR back in 1995. I also immediately realized that the USSR was rather well prepared for collapse whereas the USA was about to be blindsided by it, and so, as a public service, I thought I should warn people.

​  ​A drama is unfolding for Korea. President Donald Trump was a once in a generation chance for reunification on the East Asian peninsula, as President Ronald Reagan was for Germany almost half a century ago. With the victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the pro-war tendency in America that goes back to President Harry Truman returns to power. The consequences for Korea and many other nations around the world will be terrible. It was Reagan himself, not the CIA man President George H.W. Bush, who followed him, who pushed for the first covert and then overt operation to bring the Berlin wall down. It was Reagan’s Jacksonian sense of independence and his personal charm that convinced a reluctant Soviet leadership and domestic administration apparatus alike to follow. Reagan did most of the job in his second term, after he had gained control – and had survived an assassination attempt.  
​  ​Now the old British-American war networks that have dominated U.S. administration since the murder of President John F. Kennedy will take over again.​..
 The popular contenders such as Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and President Trump were axed away with the most unfair means to clear the path for Harris to reclaim control of the US for the war network. Harris’ career is also well planned ahead. The demented and corrupt Joe Biden, who is easy to manipulate and blackmail, is for some the perfect profile of a politician.

​The biggest trade treaty in the world shockingly includes China AND Japan, all southeast Asian countries,

Australians are deeply uneasy about being controlled and overwhelmed by China:
​  ​Suggesting that Canberra “reflect on its own deeds”, China last week left 21 tonnes of live Australian lobster to die in Shanghai warehouses awaiting customs clearance. Chinese importers have been “advised” to stop importing barley, sugar, red wine, timber, coal, and copper ore and concentrates –and a ban on wheat is also expected.

​"The Great Reset" Already Happened, Charles Hugh Smith​
​  ​The dual extremes of financialization and globalization created the 2008 bubble, and its collapse almost took down the entire global capital house of cards. Central banks, ultimately financed by the Fed to the tune of $29 trillion, twice the size of America's entire GDP, instituted The Great Reset under the usual guise of "emergency measures" which then became permanent policies.
​  ​The Great Reset led to the hyper-centralization of control over the global economy's money as central banks coordinated unprecedented money-printing and financial repression, which includes zero-interest rate policies (ZIRP), as the debt-bubble would pop if rates aren't nailed down to zero.
​  ​All the PR being spewed about The Great Reset is the final frantic flailing of a system that's drowning in its own excesses. The 50-year long era of the few enriching themselves as the expense of the many has ended, for the same reason eras of extreme exploitation always end--the elites got too greedy and overshot the economy's ability to sustain their rapidly expanding share of the income and wealth.
​  ​Put another way: the elites have cannibalized the system so thoroughly that there's nothing left to steal, exploit or cannibalize. The hyper-centralized global money control has run out of rope as the cheap oil is gone, debts have ballooned to the point there is no way they'll ever be paid down, and the only thing staving off collapse is money-printing, which holds the seeds of its own demise.

Building Back Better, A Respectable Conspiracy, Tessa Fights Robots
   A conspiracy is an agreement between two or more individuals to work together toward a shared goal, without disclosing it—or its known or possible implications—to those outside the group. In that sense, our entire history is a collection of conspiracies.​..
  ​Thus, once somebody is well-fed and financially secure a million times over, the desire to have more turns into a psychosis—which I believe is what we are dealing with today—psychosis on the highest level, plus a very sophisticated machine of manufacturing consent.
​  ​Thus, the project of “manufacturing consent” has been around for about a hundred years, notably starting with the legacy of Edward Bernays, the father of “public relations.”...
Psychologically, we are used to accepting certain conspiracies as “normal” and viewing other ones as totally insane. For example, we know not to believe commercials on TV—and we don’t get all that surprised when a particular product suddenly turns out to be bad for us. We expect brands—and politicians—to exaggerate the usefulness of their products and ideas and to downplay the harms. We all know about Big Tobacco. Many of us know about Teflon, sugar vs. fat, glyphosate, asbestos, and DDT—which were at some point marketed to us as “safe” and “beneficial.” We have no problem accepting that kind of a corporate conspiracy. We are also eager to believe that a foreign country could be potentially seeking our demise.​..
  ​Where the mind stumbles in disbelief is the kind of “domestic” conspiracy whose plot puts us, proud Western citizens, in a position of pests who occupy or contaminate a coveted resource. We don’t like the conspiracies in which we are viewed in the same way a foreign invader views a local population or in a way the European settlers viewed the indigenous.​.. ​We’re thinking, yeah, everyone is trying to pull the blanket toward themselves—but there are certain things that just don’t happen!
​  ​One really has to do a lot of massaging of the physical reality in order to fit this mess into a politically correct explanation. So, there has to be an international agenda—and it just so happens that all major Western leaders are suddenly singing in sweet unison about the Great Reset. They are!

​ Look how reasonable Klaus Schwab is. 
I don't see any details, but he wants capitalism to reform itself to be nice to everybody, and he's already working on it with a lot of the better, nicer capitalists. 
No details yet. Soon..   (Thanks Travis).​
​  ​Of course, we remain far from our goal of achieving a better global economic system for all. The Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics are just one of many initiatives that are needed to get to such an outcome—and time is quickly running out. But in a world where pessimism is increasingly the order of the day, and narrow and short-term self-interest is still alluring, initiatives like these demonstrate that a more inclusive and sustainable model is possible. It is up to us to replicate and follow such an approach. When that happens, those who follow the path of stakeholder capitalism will soon find that it leads to a more inclusive and sustainable economy for all.

Friday The 13th

 Feeling Lucky,

  This is pretty brief this morning before dawn. It was clearly laid out that the Democratic camp would not concede the election at any time, and that votes that favored Trump early, would reverse late, and Biden would win. 
  The stated battle strategy was massive vote rigging, with a what'cha-gonna-do-about-it-? dare. 
Well, if the judges in the rigged states are all rolled up, and the deep state is running the show, you pretty much have to lie there and get your face punched, don't you? That's a thing I remember. I never had any allies as a kid.

“We now are up to a count of about 650,000 ballots that are unlawful ballots that were cast in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh,” he said.

​Tricky Trump fired Esper to sneak American troops out of Afghanistan before Christmas...
Scoop: Divisive Pentagon hire may rush troop withdrawals before Trump's exit

​The Saker figures the Deep State will win again, but hedges that opinion:
​  Furthermore, as those familiar with Hegelian dialectics know, each action eventually results in a reaction and the notion that 70’000’000+ voters will simply accept what is self-evidently a coup against not only Trump, but also the US Constitution itself, is ridiculous. If anything, these people will now come to realize that while the US is facing no real foreign threats at all (except those it created itself), there is most definitely an internal threat, in the sense of the United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office, and that this reality gives them the right, and even duty, to “resist tyranny”.
​  ​You have probably heard Joe Biden declaring that he wants to heal the wounds, restore unity, rule for all US Americans and the like. I don’t think that this is only empty political rhetoric, though that is part of it too. Mostly, I believe that the Dems are terrified because they know for a fact that they stole the election and this is why after four years of the most divisive and irresponsible rhetoric against Trump, “the racist system” and all the rest of the crap, they are now making a 180 (they are experts at that!) and pleading for calm, peace and unity.
That ain’t going to happen.
​  ​Finally, a word to those who like to say that there is no difference between the Dems and the GOP, that this is all a fake conflict: friends, you are both right and massively wrong. You are right when you say that the DNC and the RNC are like indistinguishable twins. But what you are missing are two crucial things:
​  ​Factions inside one party can actually go after each other much harder than against their common enemies. I think of the SS vs the SA in Nazi Germany or the Trotskysts vs the Stalinists in the Soviet Union and during the Spanish Civil war.
But, even more crucially, this is not a contest between the Democrats and the Republicans, it is a contest between a “rejected outsider” and both the DNC and RNC!

Where We are Today

 Fellow Travelers,

  Where are we in the progress of history, and why is John posting skanky right-wing tabloid blog crap?
We are into the terminal decline of fossil energy and the economy of exponential growth which it has fed. We were fed returns on our Ponzi scheme investments, but that has to end abruptly soon. Look where the 2020 red line would fall on this archaic 1972 computer projection of global human economy and environment:

I wrote this up 3 years ago on the blog.

  At this juncture of human history, as we proceed, we are about to step into a massive rupture in continuity. Wealth, property and livelihood will, inescapably be redefined, and people often fight to the death for what-is-rightfully-theirs in these epochs. The last time in my life that the will of the American people seemed to matter was in the rejection of the Vietnam war, and some of the aftermath of that in the years of taking down Nixon and demoting the CIA in the Church hearings. The deep state had to lie low, briefly under a center right president with softer hair, Jimmy Carter. Then the deep state was resurgent under Bush-Reagan, and the American people were just carried along for the ride.
The ride approaches the cliff of falling energy resources, falling tribute from the empire, and the collapse of the monetary/financial Ponzi scheme, which holds our retirement accounts.
  The means-of-production which provide our groceries, electricity, gas, communications networks, and financial transactions depend on the Ponzi scheme. Disruptions will cascade in unpredictable ways, as points of failure are imposed within the system to shield powerful interests from losses, while imposing them on the weak (us).are not 
  When complex systems collapse, they collapse to the highest level of complexity that resource flows will support, or a little lower than that.
Upper layers of hierarchy are not sustainable, since they need to be fed by lower layers with excess production. That creates the elite power struggle to impose-losses on rival elite factions first, before letting the production economy fail. Bombing Iraq, Syria, Libya, and blockading Venezuela and Iran have done that. The big win was the imposition of losses upon the USSR in the 1980s, when oil prices plummeted, to cause it's collapse. (The corpse-feeding-frenzy was interrupted by an unknown apparatchik installed into power after Yeltsin-the-drunk, though.)
Essentially NOBODY in America has lived through a collapse, and those who have are either very old (Kissinger, Soros), Russian, Chinese or Vietnamese. They are America's brain trust, and I don't trust the first 2.
  It's usually a bad sign when power elites really try hard to convince pawns like us of the righteousness of their causes. 
It usually means a bloodbath is coming, and we are the ones who bleed, die and lose our livelihoods and property
  We know that vegetable gardens are a big help to people trying to survive a collapse. Bicycles can do a lot when you have no gasoline, but really, it's the riders that have to be able to do it. Even bad roads can be ridden. Being a productive human in a community makes you worth keeping in the community. Some communities will have enough productivity and support to persist. Others, especially if they depend on outside flows of wealth and supplies, will fragment. Mostly fragment peacefully... Some power players may decide to feed upon your community.
Then what? It's best if you do not depend on things they can easily take, for your existence. They will take wheat, corn and beans. They will not typically take root crops like sweet potatoes. Just sayin', You can look this up, too. Yes have dried beans and rice and salt and cooking oin and onions and garlic and cheese and canned tomatoes. Know that guys with guns can and will take them, though...

  Here is a global elite guy who is entitled to impose losses on you and me, because he is smart, sees the big picture, and knows that we need a new world order. Build Back Better!
  In his book Covid-19: The Great Reset, World Economic Forum globalist Klaus Schwab asserts that the world will “never” return to normal, despite him admitting that coronavirus “doesn’t pose a new existential threat.”  
  “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal,” writes Schwab. “The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.”

Tessa Fights Robots has a sore spot around propaganda, which brings me to the explanation of why I'm posting skanky right wing tabloid blog crap. Nobody else is covering the important power plays that we need to know about, which threaten us in the near future, the Great Reset.
  First off, this is an existential post because the task at hand transcends politics. For clarity, and to get the political emotion out of the way, my politics is “human.” I am greatly appalled by the spectacle-at-large, by the cruelty and dishonesty of it, and I am not contributing any of my mental energy to the hyped and nerve-racking fight between competing parasites. By choice, I remain unmoved by the pressure to “sound smart,” according to the rules of the echo chamber. In my Soviet childhood, I have written enough mandatory cliché essays—full of talking points that a “smart child” would recite—to become allergic to propaganda for life. No propaganda please.

  Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch owns Fox news and The New York Post. Rupert came under heavy pressure recently. Rupert's news outlets appear to be abandoning Team Trump, and signing on to mainstream media narratives, with a right-gatekeeper position. Go Bush-Clinton!
(Russian propaganda)
(skanky right wing tabloid)

Caitlin Johnstone has a perspective on mass media torture:
​  ​In reality, though most of them probably did not realize it, this is what Americans were actually voting against when they turned out in record numbers to cast their votes. Not against Trump, but against this continued psychological abuse they've been suffering both directly and indirectly from the mass media. Against being bashed in the face by shrieking, hysterical bullshit that hurts their bodies and makes them feel crazy, and against the unpleasantness of having to interact with stressed-out compatriots who don't haven't been putting up well with the abuse.
  ​It wasn't a "Get him out" vote, it was a "Make it stop" vote.

​"Shredding The Fabric of Our Democracy" by saying bad things on Facebook...
​  ​Now, shortly after the election, one of Biden’s top aides is ramping up calls for a crackdown on Facebook for allowing Facebook users to read views that he considers misleading — users who signed up to hear from these individuals.  Bill Russo, a deputy communications director on Biden’s campaign press team, tweeted late Monday that Facebook “is shredding the fabric of our democracy” by allowing such views to be shared freely... ​  ​
​  ​For those of us in the free speech community, these threats are chilling. We saw incredible abuses before the election in Twitter barring access to a true story in the New York Post about Hunter Biden and his alleged global influence peddling scheme. Notably, no one in the Biden camp (including Biden himself) thought that it was a threat to our democracy to have Twitter block the story (while later admitting that it was a mistake).
​  ​I have previously objected to such regulation of speech. What is most disturbing is how liberals have embraced censorship and even declared that “China was right” on Internet controls. Many Democrats have fallen back on the false narrative that the First Amendment does not regulate private companies so this is not an attack on free speech. Free speech is a human right that is not solely based or exclusively defined by the First Amendment.  Censorship by Internet companies is a “Little Brother” threat long discussed by free speech advocates.  Some may willingly embrace corporate speech controls but it is still a denial of free speech.

​John Brennan appears to call for a palace coup against Donald Trump:
Brennan & other spooks go full conspiracy theorist over suggestion ‘cornered’ Trump will indeed ‘DECLASSIFY EVERYTHING’
​  ​Brennan was concerned even as the pundit reminded him that Trump only had 70 days to leave the White House without leaving a smoking crater in his wake. “You can do a lot of damage in 70 days,” he hinted darkly, questioning whether the president was “going to carry out these vendettas against these other individuals.”
  ​“It’s clear Donald Trump Is trying to exercise the power because he can, and he’s going to settle scores, but I’m very concerned about what he might do,” the spook-turned-Resistance stalwart mused, veering into projection territory with a suggestion that the president was “just very unpredictable. Right now he’s like a cornered cat” or “tiger” and was going to “lash out.”
​  ​Brennan may have quite a bit to fear should Trump decide to burn the intelligence agencies down on his way out of the White House.
  ​Recently-declassified handwritten notes from the ex-CIA director suggest he and his agency knew there was no substance to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s allegations the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election – an explosive allegation that could prove key to prosecuting the scandal the president and his allies have come to refer to as “Spygate.”

​Rupert Murdoch's New York Post, which recently released the Hunter Biden Story, bringing pressure upon Rupert, now has this:
Biden’s team considering legal action to force formal transition of power
​  ​The formal presidential transition doesn’t begin until the administrator of the federal General Services Administration ascertains the “apparent successful candidate” in the general election. Neither the Presidential Transition Act nor federal regulations specify how that determination should be made. That decision green lights the entire federal government’s moves toward preparing for a handover of power.
​  ​In 2000, the GSA determination was delayed until after the Florida recount fight was settled on Dec. 13. At the time, the administrator relied on an assessment from one of the drafters of the 1963 Presidential Transition Act that “in a close contest, the Administrator simply would not make the decision.”

​Now for the big lawfare counterattack on the vote-rigging assault against American (deplorable Trump) voters:

​  ​“In Philadelphia, where we are furthest ahead, we have about 60 or 70 witnesses in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and in Pittsburgh,” Giuliani said, according to WND.
​  ​“In Pittsburgh, we have observers who for 24 hours were kept out of the room or kept away from the room where they were counting the mail-in ballots, which of course are the highly suspicious ballots,” he added.
​  ​“During that period of time, at least 135,000 ballots were counted, none of which were observed by any Republican observer as the law requires.”
Giuliani claimed that bundles of mail-in ballots were brought in late.
​  ​“It looked very much like they were trying to make up the 700,000 difference that they had from election night,” he said.
Giuliani alleged another 300,000 ballots were counted while no GOP observers were allowed to watch.

On the ubiquity of voting fraud in America 
(It is generally accepted that JFK clinched his 1960 win against Dick Nixon by Daddy Joe having rigged Pannsylvania.)
​  ​So being worried about voter fraud, and even suggesting it could alter the results of a US presidential election, is not outside the norm of US politics.
​  ​Before, I said that there are roughly 1,200 known cases of recent American voter fraud. Of course, this doesn’t tell us how common voter fraud really is because it could be that the vast majority of instances are never detected. County level analysis shows that there are at least 1.8 million excess registered voters relative to the eligible population size and this at least opens the door for the possibility of voter fraud on a truly massive scale (Judicial Watch, 2020).
​  ​More importantly, non-citizens in America report voting at rates that imply at least nearly a million cases of voter fraud per year. This suggests that only a tiny proportion of the voter fraud that takes place is normally caught and that fraud at a scale that can change elections is actually the norm.

​This is a new twist. AI software decided which signatures were good, which mail in ballots to accept, in a lot of places. Whitney Webb
​  ​Though accusations of election fraud in the 2020 US presidential election have been swirling across social media and some news outlets for much of the past week, few have examined the role of a little known Silicon Valley company whose artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm was used to accept or reject ballots in highly contested states such as Nevada.
​  ​That company, Parascript, has long-standing cozy ties to defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin and tech giants including Microsoft, in addition to being a contractor to the US Postal Service. In addition, its founder, Stepan Pachikov, better known for cofounding the app Evernote in 2007, is a long-standing and 2020 donor to Democratic presidential candidates.
​  ​Parascript’s AI software was used during this election in at least eight states for matching signatures on ballot envelopes with those in government databases in order to “ease the workload of staff enforcing voter signature rules” resulting from the influx of mail-in ballots.

​  ​Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has taken a wafer-thin lead in the state of Georgia thanks to mail-in ballots, well within the half-a-per cent threshold for a taxpayer-funded recount - which could see President Donald Trump's campaign team weeding out suspect votes.
​  ​US President Donald Trump has hailed a victory after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp insisted only "legally cast" election ballots would be counted in the key swing state.

The outpatient treatments can be used without the prescription drugs ivermectin and doxycycline.
