Nothing Worth Stealing

 "Citizens",


The CIA Has Been Taking Over For Decades, Lee Camp

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

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

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

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

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

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

Schrodinger's COVID

 Probably OK,


Jeremy provided these top 3 articles today. Jeremy is channeling the Spirit of Truth.

Signs of Things to Come, Consciousness of Sheep
  For those readers not familiar with the crisis; here is the short version (see the linked post for a deeper explanation).  Because humans have consumed the cheapest and easiest fossil fuel deposits first, the quantity of energy we have to devote to securing energy rises remorselessly.  Throughout the growth phase of industrial civilisation (broadly 1750 to 2000) this was not a problem because the energy cost of energy was never high enough to limit growth in the much larger non-energy sectors of the economy.  Beginning in the 1970s though, growth in the western economies began to slow as the energy cost of energy began to drag on the wider economy.  Restricted – and heavily debt-based – growth was able to continue through the 1990s; but at some point in that decade, the energy cost of energy caused average prosperity to begin to decline.  The ensuing debt overshoot eventually brought down the banking and financial system; obliging governments to bail out the system at the cost of the ongoing decline of the “real economy.” ...
  In employment, then, the practical response to the rising energy cost of energy is that employers and workers seek to circumvent labour market regulation which was created in a bygone age when real growth was still possible.  And note that this is a very different reality to the wildly optimistic, hi-tech fantasy of the “Great Reset” in which we are meant to generate sufficient growth to automate almost everything.
​  ​Nor is the gig economy the place where decline stops.  While a large part of the gig economy exists in a legal twilight zone in which a great deal that goes on is unlawful – subject to civil law – very little crosses the boundary into criminality.  But as the energy cost of energy increases, criminal gangs also have a growing incentive to engage in crime as a means of circumventing the laws and regulations of a by-gone age.
​  It is no accident that growing demand for the abolition of slavery corresponded to the growth of coal-powered industrialisation.  Such an economy no longer needs raw labour power – whether waged or forced – because of the huge increase in productivity achieved by industrial technologies backed by an explosion of fossilised sunlight.  Wage labourers were still needed to mind the machines; but they were no longer the power source behind them.  This is seen most clearly in the nineteenth century division between the industrial northern states of the USA, where freed slaves were a useful addition to the growing industrial workforce, and the manual labour-based colonial economies of the southern states whose profit margins were built on the back of slave labourers.​..
​  In the immediate aftermath of the pandemic we will be able to turn a blind eye to all of these attempts to get around the net energy bind that we are now trapped in.  An infusion of state and central bank “stimulus funding” will most likely generate a brief boomlet before the inevitable stagflation arrives.  But the energy cost of energy is going to keep on rising unless someone can very rapidly discover some yet-to-be-discovered higher-density energy source and deploy it at scale.  In the meantime, the amount of energy that has to be devoted to the energy sector of the economy will continue to rise – even if it has to be subsidised by states, businesses and households.  And that draws us ever closer to that net energy cliff beyond which industrial civilisation cannot function:

​  ​For the moment, we are most likely somewhere near the 15:1 point – where we have to devote one unit of energy for energy against 15 units of surplus energy for the non-energy sectors of the economy.  This means that we have passed the point at which we can “save” our way of life; but it is not too late to enter into a managed period of de-growth in which we try to save at least some of the essentials that make life bearable.  But left unmanaged, the various versions of arbitrage, corruption and criminality can only increase and plunge us into a post-industrial dystopia…

​This paper in the scientific journal, Nature implies that 81% of us are not susceptible to bad cases of COVID; and never were...
SARS-CoV-2-derived peptides define heterologous and COVID-19-induced T cell recognition
  T cell immunity is central for the control of viral infections. To characterize T cell immunity, but also for the development of vaccines, identification of exact viral T cell epitopes is fundamental. Here we identify and characterize multiple dominant and subdominant SARS-CoV-2 HLA class I and HLA-DR peptides as potential T cell epitopes in COVID-19 convalescent and unexposed individuals. SARS-CoV-2-specific peptides enabled detection of post-infectious T cell immunity, even in seronegative convalescent individuals. Cross-reactive SARS-CoV-2 peptides revealed pre-existing T cell responses in 81% of unexposed individuals and validated similarity with common cold coronaviruses, providing a functional basis for heterologous immunity in SARS-CoV-2 infection. Diversity of SARS-CoV-2 T cell responses was associated with mild symptoms of COVID-19, providing evidence that immunity requires recognition of multiple epitopes. Together, the proposed SARS-CoV-2 T cell epitopes enable identification of heterologous and post-infectious T cell immunity and facilitate development of diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic measures for COVID-19  

Market Ticker has the relevant implications spelled out here in ALL CAPS:
​  ​81% eh?  Isn't that an interesting number?  Where have we seen that before?
You know damn well where, don't you?
​  ​It's the rough percentage of alleged Covid-19 infections that were either asymptomatic or very low-symptom for which no medical treatment was sought and, in many cases, not detected.
​  ​So it wasn't 30 or 50% who had pre-existing protection it's actually roughly 8 in 10!  This was not a "novel, everyone is susceptible" virus at all.  It never was.  You were lied to from the very beginning and thus all the "models" based on that were trash.​..​

​ Now we know what Diamond Princess happened the way it did.  It was never possible for more than 20% of the people on that ship to get seriously-symptomatic Covid-19 despite being cooped up in close quarters for weeks with an aerosol-spread disease and cruise passengers generally being wildly-overrepresented for various morbidity factors.  It also completely explains why one of two people quarantined in the same cabin got sick and the other did not.
  We also know why there is no place on the planet that has seen >20% of people with significant, symptomatic disease from Covid-19...
In 100% of the persons who had and recovered from Covid-19 and 81% of those who have never had the virus a vaccine may well be worthless as they already have T-cell response.  While this will not prevent them from getting it again there is questionable at best benefit over their existing immunological state but there is risk, including a risk of death, from the side effects.​..​
​  ​One point stands out from this study and, in combination with the study documenting pathogenic response to the spike protein alone is now evident: "Warp Speed" was stupid; it targeted the wrong thing, it has made people specifically vulnerable to nasty outcomes during the month or so before "protection" is allegedly achieved and fails to provide durable protection to the nucleocapsid portion of the virus as it does not target that at all.  Further, in roughly 80% of the population as a whole taking the shot is worse than worthless since they are not exposed to severe disease in the first place but the shot is likely to temporarily block the asymptomatic or low-symptom infection that would perfect their natural immunity to the nucleocapsid portion of the virus that is required for replication while exposing said persons to the risk of severe or even fatal side effects by producing a systemic invasion of the spike protein which, if said person was naturally infected, would likely not occur since the person's immune system can recognize the original infected cells in the respiratory tract and prevent the replication cycle from completing and becoming systemic.  And even worse at some point in the future as antibodies wane said persons without nucleocapsid protection are exposed to that risk again but have no idea when that risk has become significant since there's no reasonable way to know what your antibody titer is over time.

​  I would like to present a hypothesis from the COVID-19 Treating Physicians list, which is that the increased "confirmed" COVID-19 cases and COVID-19 deaths in the 2 weeks following vaccination are actually vaccine adverse reactions, which test positive for SARS-CoV-2, because the "vaccines" cause the body to produce, and widely distribute, exactly the spike=protein fragments which the test detects in the nasal mucous.​
  One of my patients was recently hospitalized about a week after an mRNA vaccination, and tested positive for COVID with a nasal swab, so her pneumonia was COVID-Pneumonia. She had been hospitalized last August for a bad case of COVID. She had antibodies. She got an inflammatory response. The hospital put her on steroids and oxygen, and she lived. A week after discharge, still on blood thinners, she was short of breath again, and had a blood clot in her lungs. She was admitted again. We are monitoring her blood thinner doses. My clinic has called her to get her second vaccine shot. 
I have written that she should not, but how do I back that up? 
She obviously got COVID again, so obviously needs the shot, though a 3 month wait after COVID is considered "abundantly cautious".

It does not appear to matter how close you are to a spreader of SARS-CoV-2 indoors, just that you are indoors with them and their dispering cloud of viral particles.

After relentlessly pushing one of the most injurious vaccines of all time, and suppressing the use of vitamin-D, ivermectin, zinc and hydroxychloroquine, 
Pfizer prepares to launch an early-treatment pill for COVID this fall.

Truth Beats Lies

 S​horted,


We Have A COVID Lifeline. The Powers Won’t Allow It.Mary Beth Pfeiffer​
In a widely reported announcement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned, “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19.”​ ...​
​  ​A website tracker summarizes those 52 ivermectin trials, involving more than 17,500 patients. Collectively, ivermectin:
–Prevented 85 percent of infections (similar to vaccines);
–Resolved 81 percent of early illness;
–Improved 43 percent of late-treated patients;
–Reduced deaths by 76 percent.  
As authorities dismiss study after study, it has become clear. The drug’s rejection is not based on science, data or the experience of many doctors. Instead, a disinformation campaign is raging to demonize the drug and belittle studies that support it.

Lots of information about physiologic benefits of vitamin-D here, Note that Michael Hollick MD, PhD is an author  
Vitamin D and Its Potential Benefit for the COVID-19 Pandemic  
​  ​Vitamin D is known not only for its importance for bone health but also for its biologic activities on many other organ systems. This is due to the presence of the vitamin D receptor in various types of cells and tissues, including the skin, skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, endocrine pancreas, immune cells, and blood vessels. Experimental studies have shown that vitamin D exerts several actions that are thought to be protective against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infectivity and severity. These include the immunomodulatory effects on the innate and adaptive immune systems, the regulatory effects on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone-system in the kidneys and the lungs, and the protective effects against endothelial dysfunction and thrombosis. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, studies have shown that vitamin D supplementation is beneficial in protecting against risk of acquiring acute respiratory viral infection and may improve outcomes in sepsis and critically ill patients. There are a growing number of data connecting COVID-19 infectivity and severity with vitamin D status, suggesting a potential benefit of vitamin D supplementation for primary prevention or as an adjunctive treatment of COVID-19. Although the results from most ongoing randomized clinical trials aiming to prove the benefit of vitamin D supplementation for these purposes are still pending, there is no downside to increasing vitamin D intake and having sensible sunlight exposure to maintain serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D at a level of least 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) and preferably 40 to 60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L) to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infection and its severity.

​The (16 page) 2007 Vitamin-D paper by Dr Hollick that really got me interested in Vitamin-D, testing and treating patients for deficiency. 
(I did discover that I needed much higher doses than he lists in the paper, and the journal article above also uses much higher doses. I don't know why, but I need 5000 units per day for several months to get most people up into the normal range, twice that if they are obese.)

Isreali Health Body Report On COVID Vax ‘Deadly’ Impacts    Thanks Jeremy
  The Israeli People Committee (IPC), a civilian body made of leading Israeli health experts, has published its April report into the Pfizer vaccine’s side effects.* The findings are catastrophic on every possible level.
  Their verdict is that “there has never been a vaccine that has harmed as many people.”  The report is long and detailed. I will outline just some of the most devastating findings presented in the report.
  “We received 288 death reports in proximity to vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination), 64% of those were men.” Yet the report states, “according to data provided by the Ministry of Health, only 45 deaths in Israel were vaccine related.” If the numbers above are sincere then Israel, which claimed to conduct a world experiment, failed to genuinely report on its experiment’s results.
  We often hear about blood clots caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine. For instance, we learned this morning about 300 cases of blood clots in of Europe. However, if the IPC’s findings are genuine, then in Israel alone the Pfizer vaccine may be associated with more deaths than AstraZeneca’s in the whole of Europe.

We can’t expect COVID-19 to go away; we should plan accordingly,
Gail Tverberg , Actuary​, Thermoeconomics Analyst

​  ​In this post, I explain why, in my view, COVID-19 seems likely to become endemic, like the flu. The vaccines won’t be enough to make it go away completely. I will also look at the issue of how we should respond to the cases of COVID-19 that we will almost certainly experience in the future.
​  To a significant extent, what we can and should do in the future is an energy issue. If we plan to transition to a green energy future, or if we simply plan to reduce usage of fossil fuels in future years, we probably need to scale back our plans for vaccines. In fact, any treatment that would be given in today’s emergency rooms is likely to become less and less possible as energy supplies deplete.
​  We will need to focus more on what our bodies can do for us, and what we can do to assist them in this effort. We also need to think about what simple changes to our environment (such as windows that open) can do for the prevention of both COVID-19 and the many other communicable diseases that we can expect to encounter in the future. ​  ​

John​ ​Ward presents actual statistics about COVID-19 in India, which is doing very well, not terribly.
​  ​Unless you made an early getaway to Planet Drongo before the lockdown, you will have read pretty much everywhere that “India sees world’s highest daily cases amid oxygen shortage”. In fact, the BBC tells us that “some people” have died waiting for oxygen, the Indian health service is “completely overwhelmed” and the country now has “sixteen million cases”.So it’s a disaster, right? Well actually, no – it isn’t. The Indian health ministry has already made it clear that the Covid19 variant they’re dealing with this year has “a considerably lower death rate than the previous version”.
​  ​Go to the Worldometer site, and you’ll see that India’s deaths per million is a minute 134: that’s 7% of the US and French figures, 6% of the UK and Italy’s and the lowest by far of any country in the Top 30 for cases. Virtually no vaccination has been undertaken in India (only 1.3% are fully vaccinated) and the country is not using lockdowns. The Times of India has just denied the BBC’s ‘deaths from oxygen shortage’ fakery.
​  ​What India IS doing, however, is employing the anti-inflammatory drugs tocilizumab and itolizumab and the antivirals favipiravir and hydroxychloroquine on a very wide scale. Go to Pharma site/accolyte spaces, and you’ll see all four drugs being rubbished: the Pharmafia and their bureaucratic whores don’t want any signs of a success to get out.
​  But the Truth already is out there: India is doing spectacularly well without either vaccines or lockdown. You won’t find that reality expressed anywhere in the Western MSM, but the facts show that its infection management drugs have delivered one of the lowest case to death rates on the planet.
​  ​Not that you’d notice, reading  Bloomberg: (my emphases)
​  ​‘India saw the world’s biggest one-day jump in coronavirus cases ever as a ferocious new wave grips the country, overwhelming hospitals and crematoriums and prompting frantic cries for help on social media.
​  ​The South Asian nation reported 314,835 new infections Thursday, topping a peak of 314,312 recorded in the U.S. on Dec. 21. People took to Twitter and Instagram to call for everything from hospital beds to medicine and doorstep Covid-19 tests.
​  ​The grim milestone shows how the pandemic crisis has shifted firmly to the developing world, where variants and complacency are threatening containment measures and there’s a lack of vaccines, with supplies dominated by richer nations.’
​  ​It’s a pack of lies from end to end. India has a population of 1.4 billion people – so overcrowding is almost generic – and being four times more people than the US, the comparison with America is completely ludicrous. Hospitals do not get overwhelmed when 134 folks out of a million get ill. India’s water purity and basic hygiene measures are very Third World. Yet despite all that, it is doing phenomenally well against Covid….by having and doing respectively none of the advantages and policies of the West.
​  ​Sloppy journalism? No – criminally misleading journalism designed to scare as many people into vaccination as possible.

Corruption in the Medical Establishment
Unpleasant facts​, ​Tessa Lena​ ​
​  ​This article is meant as something simple and logical that you can send to friends who still blindly trust in the American medical establishment. It’s a collection of stories and links that are not conspiratorial at all. All logical, all “respectable,” bland almost—yet demonstrating beyond any reasonable doubt that we need to watch out for ourselves.

​We all lived at Camp Lejeune , North Carolina, which had the biggest TCE contamination of the drinking water of anywhere, but we didn't know it. We drank it and swam laps and laps and laps in it. My Dad got Parkinson's disease, and he died in early 2018, and we are just hearing about this.
Rates of Parkinson’s disease are exploding. A common chemical may be to blame
​  Dorsey, a neurologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center and author of Ending Parkinson’s Disease, believes a Parkinson’s epidemic is on the horizon. Parkinson’s is already the fastest-growing neurological disorder in the world; in the US, the number of people with Parkinson’s has increased 35% the last 10 years, says Dorsey, and “We think over the next 25 years it will double again.”
  Most cases of Parkinson’s disease are considered idiopathic – they lack a clear cause. Yet researchers increasingly believe that one factor is environmental exposure to trichloroethylene (TCE), a chemical compound used in industrial degreasing, dry-cleaning and household products such as some shoe polishes and carpet cleaners.

Anticipating Sudden Letdown

 Forewarned,


  Our present western economic system is based upon faith in a future which cannot possibly transpire. That faith is growing thinner and thinner, so the leverage on the bets is growing higher and higher, to maintain the amount of skim-profit, to which our elite class and their upper managers are accustomed. The system crashed in 2008, but was resuscitated with more skim than ever to bankers and financiers, and more promises than ever for everybody else. This was sustained by "whatever it took" in money printing and asset-buying by central banks, It's the biggest ponzi scheme ever, and the Federal Reserve banking system is the final sucker. There was an overnight-repo crisis in late summer of 2019, when the major banks quit trusting each other overnight. 
The fix was the Fed, again. 
"Repo" still broken after over a year of social distancing and lockdowns. That didn't create overnight trust at the level of major global banks. 

  The top 10%, the managerial class, has been bribed to hold things together for 13 years. 
The present system will not hold together without their best efforts.
Elites have no plan but to retain power indefinitely.  
When does the system break? Next month? June? 
Got beans? Got water? Got cash? Got friends?

Anthony Ward, "The Slog"
​  ​What I find worrying tonight is the number of people whose experience I trust offering remarkably similar predictions: in a relatively narrow time range from mid-May to late June, they all see time finally running out for by far the most mendacious stock valuation bubble in bourse history.
​  ​The control, containment and citizen obedience being demanded by States around the globe is in near-zero relation to the homoaeopathic threat from SarsCov2. We are about to see the real reason for accustoming us to the idea of virtue-signalled, false necessity.

THE $2.3 QUADRILLION GLOBAL TIMEBOMB

​  ​The $30 billion in Archegos derivatives that went up in smoke over a weekend is just the tip of the iceberg. The hedge fund Archegos lost everything and the normal uber-leveraged players Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, Nomura etc lost at least $30 billion.
​  ​These investment banks are making casino bets that they can’t afford to lose. What their boards and top management don’t realise or understand is that the traders, supported by easily manipulated risk managers, are betting the bank on a daily basis.​..
​  ​Just take the notorious Deutsche Bank (DB) that has outstanding derivatives of €37 trillion against total equity of €62 billion. Thus the derivatives position is 600X the equity.
Or to put it in a different way, the equity is 0.17% of the outstanding derivatives. So a loss of 0.2% on the derivatives will wipe the share capital and the bank out!
​  ​Now the DB risk managers will argue that the net derivatives position is just a fraction of the €37 trillion at €20 billion. That is of course nonsense as we saw with Archegos when a few banks let $30 billion over a weekend.
​  ​Derivatives can only be netted down on the basis that counterparties pay up. But in a real systemic crisis, counterparties will disappear and gross exposure will remain gross.

​  11 years ago in Afghanistan, news of massive mineral deposits came out. 
It's not just heroin and the ability to disrupt Russia, China and Iran that makes this real estate valuable to the crumbling western empire.​
$1 Trillion Motherlode of Lithium and Gold Discovered in Afghanistan​ , June 16, 2010
​  ​The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world. An internal Pentagon memo, for example, states that Afghanistan could become the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,” a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries...

Biden isn’t ending the Afghanistan War, he’s privatizing it: Special Forces, Pentagon contractors, intelligence operatives will remain
​  ​Over 18,000 Pentagon contractors remain in Afghanistan, while official troops number 2,500. Joe Biden will withdraw this smaller group of soldiers 
while leaving behind US Special Forces, mercenaries, and intelligence operatives — privatizing and downscaling the war, but not ending it.

​This article fails to mention that the massive Russian military build-up around Ukraine came after a massive NATO build up around Ukraine, and many truck and trainloads of weapons shipped to Ukraine, and Ukranian military movements, and that "effective declaration of war" by Ukraine, against Russia, declaring the unanimous ​vote of Crimea to rejoin Russia null and void, and making Crimea a Ukranian target for invasion.
​  ​As the hostile rhetoric and military moves around Ukraine have intensified, Western politicians have begun fearing an open invasion and urging Russia's Vladimir Putin to "de-escalate".
Russia has refused: the defense ministry this week insisted its moves were in response to "threatening" Nato exercises in Europe.
Then Mr Putin got a phone-call from the White House.
And then, noted the BBC, Biden suggested a near-future face-to-face summit with Putin, which gives Russia the edge given it was the US side that first proposed it:
​  ​"In Putin's game of brinkmanship, Biden blinked first," argues journalist Konstantin Eggert, after Joe Biden made his first call to the Kremlin and proposed meeting Mr Putin "in the coming months".
It's just weeks after the US president agreed with an interviewer that Russia's leader was "a killer".
​  ​President Biden's new move is now a new topic of debate - disaster prevention or a mistaken concession - but in the run-up to a summit, the risk of major military action by Russia certainly fades.
​  ​"That would be really unstatesmanlike: a slap in Biden's face," Mr Eggert told the BBC. "But the fact that it was Biden who suggested they meet does give Putin the edge."

Conventionally, the United States cannot win against Russia in Europe, at least Eastern part of it and Biden Admin better wake up to the reality that it may, indeed, not survive any kind of escalation and, in fact, modern Kalibrs, 3M14Ms, as a matter of fact, have a range of a 4,500 kilometers, as well as 5,000+ kilometer range of X-101 cruise missiles, which will have no issues with penetrating North American airspace when launched by Russia’s strategic bombers without even leaving the safety of Russia’s airspace.​..
...Triple Yoda Patrushev mentioned a very civilized late March phone call he had with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. Of course there’s no smokin’ gun, but if anyone would come up with the face-saving idea of a Biden-Putin phone call that would have been Sullivan.
​  ​The spin from Washington and Moscow is only slightly divergent. The Americans highlight that “Biden” – actually the deciding combo behind him – wants to build “a stable and predictable relationship with Russia, consistent with US interests.”
  T​he Kremlin said that Biden “expressed interest in normalizing bilateral relations.”
Away from all this fog, what really matters is Patrushev-Sullivan. That has to do with Washington telling Turkey that US warships would be transiting the Bosphorus towards the Black Sea. Sullivan must have told Patrushev that no, they won’t be “active” in Donbass. And Patrushev told Sullivan, OK, we won’t incinerate them.​..
​  So the cliffhanger – like a teaser for Snowpiercer – is what happens when Nord Stream 2 is completed.​..
​  Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, has struck a much less Daoist note than Peskov: “The United States is our enemy, doing everything to undermine Russia’s position in the international arena, we do not see other elements in their approach to us. These are our conclusions”
That’s stone to the bone realpolitik. Ryabkov knows the Hegemon’s “non agreement-capable” mindset inside out.​..​
​  ​Putin reiterated Minsk 2 on his live teleconference with Merkel and Macron – and certainly to “Biden” in their phone call. The Beltway, the EU and NATO are all aware of it. Minsk 2 was signed by Ukraine, France and Germany and certified by the UN Security Council. If Kiev violates it, Russia – as a member of the UNSC – must enforce it.
​  ​Kiev has been violating Minsk 2 for months now; it refuses to implement it. As a faithful Hegemon satrapy, they are also not “agreement-capable”. Yet now they are seeing the – firepower – writing on the wall if they as much as think of starting a blitzkrieg against Donbass.​..
  Ideally, Ukraine/Donbass would be inserted in the overall revival of the Silk Roads – as in internal Central Eurasian trade based and developed taking into consideration Eurasia-wide demand. Eurasia integration – in both the Chinese and Russian vision – are all about interconnected economies via inter-regional trade.
​  ​So it’s not by accident that the Hegemon – on the verge of becoming an irrelevant player across Eurasia – is going no holds barred to harass and try to smash the continental integration by all means available.


​  ​Following on the heels of last week's Joe Biden invitation to Vladimir Putin for a bilateral summit proposed for the summer to tackle a range of still simmering contentious issues, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky has issued a surprised invitation late Tuesday for Putin to meet him in the war-torn east of Ukraine.
​  ​In making the announcement Zelensky told Putin that such a direct high states meeting where the two leaders can talk de-escalation is essential as there are a "million lives at stake" in any potential outbreak of major conflict,

Vladimir Putin's State Of The Nation Address:  (a few excerpts)
 "We behave in a restrained, modest manner. Oftentimes we do not respond to outright rudeness; we want to have good relations. 
We are not looking to burn any bridges."
​  ​"I hope no one will think of crossing so-called 'red lines' against Russia, which we ourselves will define in each separate case. Russia’s response will be symmetrical, fast and tough. The organizers of any provocations threatening our core security interests will regret their actions more than they've regretted anything in a long time."
 "But now this practice is degenerating into something more dangerous — for example, an attempt to organize a coup in Belarus and an attempt to assassinate this country's president.... The West is silent on this matter."

"You can have any position on Lukashenko's policies, but staging a goverment coup and planning the assassination of a head of state is too much."
​  ​And on Biden's recent sanctions...
"It seems that everyone is already accustomed to the practice of imposing illegal, politically motivated sanctions, attempts to impose their will on others by force."​ ...
​  On Russian national spirituality and traditional religion:
​  "And today, family, friendship, mutual assistance, and compassion have come to the fore for us. Spiritual and moral values, which some countries are forgetting about, have, on the contrary, made us stronger, and we will always uphold and protect these values," Putin pledged.
​  Putin added that the service of representatives of traditional religions had become "the spiritual backbone of society, as it always was in difficult times." That said, the head of state addressed the clergy present in the hall, "I would like to take a deep bow before you all. Thank you very much."

​Relations between the USand Russia are being dismantled, of necessity, with or without a Putin-Biden summit:
​ At this point, Russia and the US have hardly anything to discuss, except what is nicely dubbed “deconflicting” (i.e. Syria and Ukraine), which is actually the military officials’ domain – and they’re working on it themselves, anyway. Even the go-to subject – strategic stability – is now in limbo, because the previous framework is gone, and working out a new one would require a serious intellectual effort and joining forces to create something that would reflect the current international and technological realities. To do that kind of work, there has to be some enthusiasm and at least basic trust, and we have neither.​..
​  The attempts of Biden’s administration to recreate the old pattern of “free world” versus “aggressive tyrannies” are doomed to fail, because neither exists in its previous clear-cut form. In a sense, we should help Washington and respond by developing closer and more sophisticated ties between Russia and China, especially since the latter is shocked by how Biden and his team have chosen to handle US relations with Beijing.
​  ​Minimizing the risks of unnecessary confrontations and diligently working on withstanding any kind of pressure is the main track for the Russian-US relations in the near future. Working together should be limited to very specific and practical concerns, if they arise. At some point, there will be demand for a new type of relationship. That’s when we should start talking about it, and not a minute earlier.


Luc sends the 24 minute "Story of Ivermectin", which is also the story of how powerful financial interests in Big Pharma have suppressed cheap, effective treatments for COVID, while making everybody wait and beg for bad and dangerous stuff like remdesivir and various genetic engineering "vaccines" which make your body produce the dangerous COVID spike protein in your own cells. (80% of people who get COVID in their noses stop it there. It never gets into their bloodstreams).
Do take 5000 units per day of vitamin-D to help your immune system do it's best work.

This more aggressive strain still responds to repurposed antivirals like ivermectin.
 Brazil’s P1 coronavirus variant, behind a deadly COVID-19 surge in the Latin American country that has raised international alarm, is mutating in ways that could make it better able to evade antibodies, according to scientists studying the virus.

​Hank Arron's death was remarkably similar to this one. "Natural Causes":
​  ​Many Americans have heard the news account of Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old Florida physician who, after receiving his first dose of a Pfizer COVID vaccine on December 18 of last year, was hospitalized three days later. He had a total loss of his platelets — the little blood cells that stop bleeding. In spite of being treated by a team of physicians, he died two weeks later from a brain hemorrhage, and was reported to have had zero platelets. By February 10, 2021, 36 other similar cases were reported in the mainstream media. Pfizer, which along with its partner BioNTech made the vaccine the doctor received, said in a statement that it was aware of the death. Typically, they concluded, “We are actively investigating this case, but we don’t believe at this time that there is any direct connection to the vaccine.”
​  ​Pfizer made this “finding” despite several unusual circumstances of the case. First, low-platelet disorders, known as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), most commonly affect children, and generally follow a viral illness. Only 10 percent of ITP cases occur in adults, who usually present with a slow onset form of the disorder, referred to as chronic ITP. The disorder usually starts by someone noticing easy bleeding, such as slow oozing from gums or the nose, or bruises showing up without trauma. Rarely do platelets drop below 20,000, and generally treatment either reverses the disease or prolongs life for years in spite of the problem.
​  What happened to this physician and the others seems to be a new previously unseen problem related to vaccination — despite the manufacturers’ claims.


  Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2)-induced infection, the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is characterized by unprecedented clinical pathologies. One of the most important pathologies, is hypercoagulation and microclots in the lungs of patients. 
​​Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential inflammagen sui generis...
. These proteins were substantially resistant to trypsinization, in the presence of spike protein S1. Here we suggest that, in part, the presence of spike protein in circulation may contribute to the hypercoagulation in COVID-19 positive patients and may cause substantial impairment of fibrinolysis.
Such lytic impairment may result in the persistent large microclots we have noted here and previously in plasma samples of COVID-19 patients.

Latest VAERS Data Show Reports of Blood Clotting Disorders After All Three Emergency Use Authorization Vaccines

Human Confusion Update

Complex Polynomials,

  Texas is finally getting a small uptick in positive COVID tests and hospitalizations, in the post-Easter period. The rapid antigen (fewer false positives) percent positive rate has ticked up to 3.4%. 
Is this the UK strain? Is this Brazilian strain? Was this entire families of all ages, and churches getting together? 
All of the above?

The UK B 1.1.7. variant is the most reported in the US, followed by the Brazilian P.1 variant, which is more contagious, more deadly, partly vaccine-resistant, and reports from Brazilian treating physicians, using Ivermectin based therapies, are that it is harder to treat with the medicines they have been using, though it does still respond and improve with those medicines.

I remember Judd For The Defense and Perry Mason: Thanks Jeremy
American Hero: Ralph C. Lorigo Fights for Client Rights Including Access to Ivermectin for COVID-19 Patients At Risk
​  ​Especially if elderly high risk patients present advanced COVID-19, Lorigo has personally seen the drug potentially contribute to saving the lives of clients. Interestingly, the attorney reports that it would appear that hospital administrations are the most recalcitrant to the idea, even if the patients and the ICU doctor are in support. It’s as if the COVID-19 wings of all hospitals are completely opposed to any suggestion of this particular medication. In the age of COVID-19, the COVID-19 wing is sort of a “federalized” operation.

​  ​CS Lewis said, “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.” ...
​  ​Covid-19 vaccine passports, the latest insult in the unending stream of scientifically inapt actions as outlined above, is already driving extensive anguish and debate. These digital passports linked to one’s entire life experience with geolocated data and one’s personal medical information represents the latest intrusion and attack on our freedoms that have been put before the easily distracted populace. These passports are simply unjustifiable on any grounds, not the least of which is the fact that SARS CoV-2 is no more deadly on a population level than influenza. Ostensibly, the passports are designed to allow individuals to partake in everyday commerce and “life” with freedom.

​Whitney Webb:  The Military Origins of Facebook
  Facebook’s growing role in the ever-expanding surveillance and “pre-crime” apparatus of the national security state demands new scrutiny of the company’s origins and its products as they relate to a former, controversial DARPA-run surveillance program that was essentially analogous to what is currently the world’s largest social network.
(Total Information Awareness: TIA)
​  ​The TIA program met with considerable citizen outrage after it was revealed to the public in early 2003. TIA’s critics included the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the surveillance effort would “kill privacy in America” because “every aspect of our lives would be catalogued,” while several mainstream media outlets warned that TIA was “fighting terror by terrifying US citizens.” As a result of the pressure, DARPA changed the program’s name to Terrorist Information Awareness to make it sound less like a national-security panopticon and more like a program aiming specifically at terrorists in the post-9/11 era...
​  ​The information that LifeLog gleaned from an individual’s every interaction with technology would be combined with information obtained from a GPS transmitter that tracked and documented the person’s location, audio-visual sensors that recorded what the person saw and said, as well as biomedical monitors that gauged the person’s health. Like TIA, LifeLog was promoted by DARPA as potentially supporting “medical research and the early detection of an emerging epidemic.”
​  ​Critics in mainstream media outlets and elsewhere were quick to point out that the program would inevitably be used to build profiles on dissidents as well as suspected terrorists. Combined with TIA’s surveillance of individuals at multiple levels, LifeLog went farther by “adding physical information (like how we feel) and media data (like what we read) to this transactional data.”

​  ​Top US officials are reportedly calling for a hard look at China’s plans for a digital yuan, after raising concerns that the new currency may potentially challenge the greenback as the world’s dominant reserve currency.
​  ​Officials at the Treasury, State Department, Pentagon, and National Security Council are currently trying to explore the potential implications of China’s new sovereign digital currency, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg...
​  ​Last year, the People’s Bank of China revealed plans to have its sovereign digital currency ready in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics. China became the first country in the world to test such a product on a national level.
​  ​According to the Chinese central bank, the new currency will share some features with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. The digital yuan is projected to replace banknotes and coins.
​  ​The White House is said not to be planning any measures against the e-yuan, but is highly interested in creating a digital dollar.


​  I personally like that the US may create a competitive (lossless-I-presume)​ digital dollar to replace paper $100 bills as the global anonymously circulating currency of  economies everywhere. If the initial creation of each "dollar" lies with the Treasury, not with private banking, then the benefits of "seigniorage" accrue to the collective, not the private. Creation of debt-money-at-interest could be curtailed, or value contributed to the commons (even if through a captured bureaucracy).

Spring Preparations

 Spring Preppers,


  Jenny and I are working the spring gardens and replacing fruit trees killed by the deep freeze around Valentine's Day. I've put in 6 fruit trees over the past two weekends in Yoakum and Austin, and the Mexican avocado bed repopulation is still not finished. My Brother, Tom, whose birthday it is today ordered me a tree that is somewhat hard to find, and I'm waiting on a few others, also. Two of the seedlings from a Mysterious California avocado tree, coming through Jenny's cousin, Freddy, in Victoria, have life growing up from the bases. Since they are seedlings, not grafted, that reflects their inherent nature, whatever it may be, so they remain in place, and are being cherished. Jenny is pictured in Yoakum this past Sunday morning, before we started some tree work.
  I'm concerned for this "great reset". We need to make our own provisions to weather this long storm into the world that has less energy and less stuff. Our owners only know to cull the herd. Maybe the secret to that lies in these universal vaccines. That's way above my pay grade, but entirely possible, and that meme is alive.

"China and Russia Launch a Global Resistance Economy", Alastair Crooke
  The $US used to be redeemable for gold, until Nixon effectively ran out in 1971. Even then, dollars were printed far in excess of gold holdings, while they were accepted as equal to god by countries which needed to do international business. The borrowed printed dollars were also paid back at interest, so there was always value extracted from the user, even if the user was not a borrower-at-interest. (Borrowers at variable interest would get the Asian Financial Crisis imposed on them, suffering massive extraction of value periodically.)
  What is proposed here is a global no-extraction monetary-mechanism, which will certainly appeal to countries currently being extracted by the $US.
This will make the $US suddenly much less valuable to the rest of the world. The rest of the world will buy whatever we still make. We in the US will hardly be able to buy anything as dollar prices of domestic goods shoot up and foreign goods just can't be bought.
  America cannot beat this. America will have to join this. Financial-capitalists would rather anything than the loss of their daily rents from global and domestic "investments". They will say we will all lose our retirements. I presume that's inevitable, anyway.
​  ​So here is the essence to ‘a clever combatant moving to impose his will’ – there is no need for China or Russia or Iran to go to war to do this; they just implement ‘it’. They can do ‘it’ – quite simply. They don’t need a revolution to do it, because they have no vested interest in fighting America.
​  ​What is ‘it’? It is not just a trade and investment pact with Tehran; neither is it simply allies helping each other. The ‘resistance’ lies precisely with the way they’re trying to help each other. It is a mode of economic development. It represents the notion that any rent-yielding resource – banking, land, natural resources and natural infrastructure monopolies – should be in the public domain to provide basic needs to everybody – freely.
​  ​The alternative way simply is to privatise these ‘public goods’ (as in the West), where they are provided at a financialized maximum cost – including interest rates, dividends, management fees, and corporate manipulations for financial gain.
​  ​‘It’ is then a truly different economic approach. To give one example: New York’s Second Avenue Subway extension cost $6 billion, or $2 billion per mile – the most expensive urban mass transit ever built. The average cost of underground subway lines outside the U.S. is $350 million a mile, or a sixth of New York’s cost.

​This poorly organized presentation states that China continues to advance its Central Bank Digital Currency. That's setting a certain pace.
  China is also beta-testing it's Sovereign Digital Currency, which is to say Chinese smartphone-money that is lossless-for-the-users. 
This smartphone exchange can also be used phone-to-phone, imitating cash, in areas without cellphone service. 
It is not blockchain. It has conventional security features. 
  China is taking steps to eliminate non-governmental digital currencies (That's what is happening to Jack Ma). 
China also wants it's digital currency to really work smoothly and well for Chinese commerce, and to be borderless, as $100 bills are effectively borderless, and anonymous, except when the Bank of China needs to trace a chain of transactions. ​
  This borderless feature will make the Chinese Sovereign Digital Currency on smartphones directly challenge the role of $100 bills in global commerce.
It looks like it has a lot to offer, but once you meet the new boss, will he become the same as the old boss? It's a good gamble, isn't it?

The deep state/NATO combo's using Kiev to start a war to bury Nord Stream 2 and German-Russian relations... Pepe Escobar
On March 24, Ukrainian President Zelensky, for all practical purposes, signed a declaration of war against Russia, via decree No. 117/2021.
The decree establishes that retaking Crimea from Russia is now Kiev’s official policy.
That’s exactly what prompted an array of Ukrainian battle tanks to be shipped east on flatbed rail cars, following the saturation of the Ukrainian army by the US with military equipment including unmanned aerial vehicles, electronic warfare systems, anti-tank systems and man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS).

Kremlin. Putin on Rossiya-1 TV channel.
​  ​"No," Peskov said answering a question if Merkel had called on Moscow to scale down its military presence near eastern Ukraine. "Merkel indeed said that Europe is concerned over the concentration of Russian forces near the borders. Yes, she said this and this concern was voiced," Peskov said. The Russian leader gave explanation to this, he stressed.
​  ​Moscow sees that the Minsk peace deal is not being implemented in Donbass and Ukraine is stepping up its provocations, Kremlin Spokesman told. "In Donbass there is a situation when the Minsk agreements are not being fulfilled," Peskov stressed. "And there is a situation in Donbass related to the increased activity of provocations by the Ukrainian armed forces."​ ...
"Since in general there are tensions and there is no de-escalation, tensions are running high and such provocations could one day ignite the fire of this civil war inside the Ukrainian conflict," Peskov stressed.

A State Supreme Court justice has ordered a Batavia hospital to administer the drug Ivermectin to an 81-year-old Covid-19 patient.   Thanks Jeremy.
  The case involving John W. Swanson, a farmer from Stafford in Genesee County, is the latest of several in which judges have ordered local hospitals to give Ivermectin to patients suffering from the virus. The drug is used to treat other ailments but is not yet approved by the federal government as a Covid-19 treatment.
  Swanson was on a ventilator and “on death’s doorstep,” at the United Memorial Medical Center when doctors there gave him one dose of Ivermectin on April 1, according to an affidavit filed in court by attorneys for Swanson’s wife, Sandra.
  “After that one dose, he started breathing on his own. He was taken off the ventilator and was making great progress,” said attorney Ralph C. Lorigo, who represents the Swanson family with Jon F. Minear. “Then, the hospital refused to give him additional doses.”
State Supreme Court Justice Frederick J. Marshall issued an order on April 2, directing the hospital to give Swanson four more doses of Ivermectin.
  As of late Friday afternoon, his attorneys described Swanson as “stable.”

Early Ambulatory Multidrug Therapy Reduces Hospitalization and Death in High-Risk Patients with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
Conclusions: We conclude that early ambulatory, multidrug therapy is associated with substantial reductions in hospitalization and death compared to available rates in the community. Prompt ambulatory treatment should be offered to high-risk patients with COVID-19 instead of watchful watching and late-stage hospitalization for salvage therapies.

​  ​A study by the Oslo University Hospital has indicated a connection between AstraZeneca's vaccine against COVID-19 and severe blood clots, low platelet counts and haemorrhaging, which previously led to the vaccine being put on hold in dozens of countries.
​  ​The study is peer-reviewed and was published Friday in The New England Journal of Medicine.

The study also indicated that the vaccine-induced platelet deficiency in blood clots may be more frequent than that found in previous studies examining its safety.
​  ​Within 10 days of vaccination, the Oslo University Hospital received five, initially healthy, people with very high levels of antibodies against platelets, which is believed to be the direct reason for the strong immune response. Three of these five are now dead, while two have fully recovered,

​John Ward, digs into some official, recent, but quiet UK COVID findings​: Thanks for the Heads-up, Jeremy.
​  ​SP-I-MO stands for Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling. It reports into the SAGE/Secretary of State Number Ten Group. Almost nobody in the UK has ever heard of it, and its pronouncements online are stored in an unexpected place under the “assets publishing service”.
​  ​What follows aren’t leaks; they’re representative extracts from the latest SPIMO report, issued on March 31st last, and discussed in Downing Street some ten days ago. As far as can be gleaned the data reports are given sporadically….as in, when SPIMO has something to say.
As you will see, at the end of March, SPIMO had a lot to say.​..
​  This first one below is bare-faced in its admission of failure:
​  ​The explosive statement there is ‘immunisation failures account for more serious illness than unvaccinated individuals’. Five pages later, reference is made to data used to make further modelled projections as follows: ”assuming two doses of AstraZeneca provide only 31% effectiveness against transmission”.
​  ​So in short, SPIMO is working on the basis of a supposed ‘vaccine’ that fails to stop the spread of infection in more than two out of three cases. This is radically different to the impression government publicity has given us – viz, that “even after vaccination, it may still be possible for you to infect others”. It sounds cautionary and responsible, but asking around a sample of acquaintances yesterday, they imagined a figure of around 80% – not 31%. Under 1 in 3 is, let’s face it, a risible result.
​  ​But the initial statement cuts the legs off continuing the vaccination rollout, because it rejects the benefit such might bring with the haunting words, “Immunisation failures account for more serious illnesses than unvaccinated individuals”.
So much for “Don’t be selfish, get the jab”.​..
​  ​56. This shows that most deaths and admissions in a post-Roadmap resurgence are in people who have received two vaccine doses, even without vaccine protection waning or a variant emerging that escapes vaccines. This is not the result of vaccines being ineffective, merely uptake being so high.
​  ​You couldn’t make this up: even without left-field factors, there’ll be a resurgence after lockdown exit, but this is not Astrazeneca’s fault – the “problem” was high uptake. By vaccinating the vulnerable bigtime, we killed more people, but a drug struggling to demonstrate efficacy had nothing to do with it.​..
​  Covid19 is not a deadly pandemic, it is another type of seasonal killer that culls the aged and infirm – but produces, on a global basis, no significant rise in such mortality. It is and always was an excuse to contain and control.

The report below is an excerpt from Israel National News
​  ​A front-page article appeared in the FranceSoir newspaper about findings on the Nakim website regarding what some experts are calling “the high mortality caused by the vaccine.”  
​  ​In January 2021, there were 3,000 records of vaccine adverse events, including 2,900 for mRNA vaccines.
Compared to other years, mortality is 40 times higher.
​  ​On February 11, a Ynet article presented data related to vaccination. The authors of the Nakim article claim to have debunked this analysis based on data published by Ynet itself: “We took the data by looking at mortality during the vaccination period, which spans 5 weeks. By analyzing these data, we arrived at startling figures that attribute significant mortality to the vaccine.”​  

The authors say “vaccinations have caused more deaths than the coronavirus would have caused during the same period.”

Haim Yativ and Dr. Seligmann declare that for them, “this is a new Holocaust,” in face of Israeli authority pressure to vaccinate citizens.

All Power Off

 Self Powered,


  How is power wielded in the Western World? 
Power, as we know it, is the capacity to compel other people to carry out actions which are designated by the powerful. 
There is the carrot of payment in money, goods, services or favors, and the stick of violence and/or deprivation.

  Since WW-2 the financial power of global reserve currency status has rested with the American Federal Reserve banking system.
To participate in global markets, any entity needs to have $US to trade in goods and services.
To obtain $US an entity must provide something of value in trade for them.
To create $US the US Federal Reserve system has to promise to back those dollars up with other dollars later, and the US Federal Government promises to accept those dollars with a promise of paying them back later with a little extra for the privilege. That creates an exponentially expanding stock of $US in the world.

  At some point there are more $US than the world needs or desires, so the world will want something else, like American goods and services.
When those dollars are repatriated to the US, they drive up the price of the goods and services the world wants, and they increase the number of dollars within the US.
If those dollars in the US circulate freely, then other prices are increased in the US. Inflation.
It is in the interests of those holding power to keep the world desirous of $US, or their structure of extracting goods and services from the rest of the world breaks down.

  When President Nixon ran out of gold to back the $US (Vietnam war bled gold from the US) King Faisal of Saudi Arabia was induced to agree to only accept $US in payment for oil, (the Shah of Iran did the same) and to recycle any excess dollars into US Treasury debt. 
The Petro-Buck was created.

  Threats to the Petro-Buck have included The Arab Oil Embargo (dealt with financially), the Iranian revolution (dealt with militarily and by secret agreements, then various forms of overt/covert warfare), the Iraqi sale of oil outside of the $US market (Iraq wars), the Libyan plan for a gold backed African currency outside the $US club (you know what Saddam got), and so on. A whole lot of violence has been needed to maintain demand for $US in the new millennium.
Violence did seem to be working, but more and more tribute-paying countries, tired of being bled are testing the Western Power Structure.
I sense that the time for a global reserve currency change is near. It stands to reason. We don't use the Pound Sterling anymore. 
These regimes don't last.

  Resorting to violence to support a financial empire is a sign of weakness, not of strength.

  Failure of violence is a further sign of weakness. Violence has failed to bring Venezuela back into the fold of blood donors to the Western Empire.
The extractive $US global trade network, the extraction mechanism, is now used as a means of violent coercion, starving the citizens of Venezuela, and depriving them of medicines and tools they need.

  Futile gestures , like $US-sanctioning Russian and Chinese politicians are an embarrassing public display of terminal weakness. 
They announce that the current financial regime is a throw-away, running on fumes, and that these "tough sanctions" are being displayed to convince the folks at home that the $US remains almighty, because they, most of all, need to stay convinced of that.

  The rest of the world, including Russia, China, Iran, Turkey and India, has long been exploring global trade alternatives to the $US regime, and quietly testing them out. The most prudent course for TROTW is to take baby steps, as it is doing, and await a $US financial crisis, like 2008, then to just increase use of the alternative systems, and open them to other participants, free of charge, free of tribute extraction.

  The US won't be able to buy F-35s after that. Americans will have to bid global prices for anything that can be exported, as their wages become almost worthless, like in 1979, but with finality, this time.

  The "Global War On Terror" has failed to solidify the US/Fed. as global hegemon for all time. 
What's Plan-B? 
Oh, that's for our billionaire owners to decide amongst themselves.
Waddaya mean they are "not decision capable"?
Whaddaya mean, "we're on our own"?
Whadday mean, "useless eaters"?

Eleni sends this "explains it all" article from mythbuster Alastair Crooke.
​  The key point here surely is whether the √©lites’ Great Re-set – to reinvent themselves as leaders of the ‘re-vamped’ values of liberalism, overlayered by a newly up-dated, AI and robot-led, post-modernity – is destined to succeed, or not.
  Continued​ ‘westification’ of the globe – the principal component to ‘old’ liberal globalism – though tarnished and largely discredited, remains mandatory, as made clear in the cogent reasoning recently advanced by Robert Kagan: Absent the justifying myth of ‘seeding democ racy across the world’ around which to organise the empire, the moral logic of the entire enterprise begins to fall apart, Kagan argued (with surprising frankness). He thus asserts that the U.S. empire abroad is required – precisely in order to preserve the myth of ‘democracy’ at home.​ ​An America that retreats from global hegemony, he argues, would no longer possess the cohesive binding to preserve America as liberal democracy, at home either.

​There's this deeply and extensively researched new book out in Germany, kind of about the insider-trading around 9/11, and some other things. He followed that money, picking up the trails where others left off, when they died or other interruptions took place.
​  Lars shows in detail how 9/11 enabled a state of emergency, a permanent Continuity of Government (COG) in the U.S. and mass surveillance of U.S. citizens – connecting the dots all the way from missing trillions of dollars in the Pentagon to NSA data mining and leading U.S. neocons. The latter had been praying for a “Pearl Harbor” to reorient US foreign policy since 1997. Their prayers were answered beyond their wildest dreams.
  The investigation eventually displays a startling road map: the war on terror as a business model. However, as Lars also shows, in the end, much to the despair of U.S. neocons, all the combined sound and fury of 9/11 and the Global War on Terror, in nearly two decades, ended up bringing about a Russia-China strategic partnership in Eurasia.
