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?
This is simply the fact in $US amounts. Lots of eggs in that basket.

"NATO is ready to fight to the last Ukie". Russia has to protect many Russians in East Ukraine, and also avoid directly invading Ukraine.
The deep state/NATO combo's using Kiev to start a war to bury Nord Stream 2 and German-Russian relations... Pepe EscobarOn 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).
MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. German Chancellor Angela Merkel in her phone talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin did not demand Russia scale down its military presence near the Ukrainian border but voiced concerns about this, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with Moscow. 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.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia has called for talks to create a legally binding international instrument that would ban the deployment of any type of weapons in space, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the 60th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's historic space flight.
"We consistently believe that only a guaranteed prevention of an arms race in space will make it possible to use it for creative purposes, for the benefit of the entire mankind. We call for negotiations on the development of an international legally binding instrument that would prohibit the deployment of any types of weapons there, as well as the use of force or the threat of force," Lavrov said in a video message on the anniversary of the first manned space flight.
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,
‘No Medical Certainty’ Pfizer Vaccine Caused Death of 56-Year-Old Doctor, Medical Examiners Say
Dr. Gregory Michael developed an autoimmune disorder three days after being vaccinated, and died about two weeks later. Scientists have linked the disorder to the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines, but officials categorized Michael’s death as natural.
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”. 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 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.
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.

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

What are your thoughts on the J&J pause? I speculate they want to herd everyone toward the mRNA ones, but interested in your thoughts.ReplyDelete
I am really not certain what intentions may take precedence over what other intentions in the power-jostlings of our shadowy-puppet-masters.Delete
Sorry, I'd just be guessing and making stuff up (again...)
Exactly what I have been thinking all along. They seem to always push negative narrative for J&J and AstraZeneca vaccines. All sunshine and rainbows for the mRNA vaccines.ReplyDelete
i am sure that the micelle-as-genetic-engineering-vehicle format of the "mRNA vaccines", which originated conceptually as a cancer treatment approach, sending information to cells to make something bad for the cancer, is broadly appealing, since it may be so very broadly applied to genetic engineering tasks in already-born humans.Delete
