COVID v. Spartacus

 Cognitive Gladiators,

Thanks to a commenter on the blog for this: 
A Self Fulfilling Prophecy: Systemic Collapse and Pandemic Simulation
​  ​The mainstream narrative should therefore be reversed: the stock market did not collapse (in March 2020) because lockdowns had to be imposed; rather, lockdowns had to be imposed because financial markets were collapsing. With lockdowns came the suspension of business transactions, which drained the demand for credit and stopped the contagion. In other words, restructuring the financial architecture through extraordinary monetary policy was contingent on the economy’s engine being turned off. Had the enormous mass of liquidity pumped into the financial sector reached transactions on the ground, a monetary tsunami with catastrophic consequences would have been unleashed.
​  ​As claimed by economist Ellen Brown, it was “another bailout”, but this time “under cover of a virus.” Similarly, John Titus and Catherine Austin Fitts noted that the Covid-19 “magic wand” allowed the Fed to execute BlackRock’s “going direct” plan, literally: it carried out an unprecedented purchase of government bonds, while, on an infinitesimally smaller scale, also issuing government backed ‘COVID loans’ to businesses. In brief, only an induced economic coma would provide the Fed with the room to defuse the time-bomb ticking away in the financial sector. Screened by mass-hysteria, the US central bank plugged the holes in the interbank lending market, dodging hyperinflation as well as the ‘Financial Stability Oversight Council’ (the federal agency for monitoring financial risk created after the 2008 collapse), as discussed here. However, the “going direct” blueprint should also be framed as a desperate measure, for it can only prolong the agony of a global economy increasingly hostage to money printing and the artificial inflation of financial assets.
​  ​At the heart of our predicament lies an insurmountable structural impasse. Debt-leveraged financialization is contemporary capitalism’s only line of flight, the inevitable forward-escape route for a reproductive model that has reached its historical limit. Capitals head for financial markets because the labour-based economy is increasingly unprofitable. How did we get to this?
​  ​The answer can be summarised as follows: 1. The economy’s mission to generate surplus-value is both the drive to exploit the workforce and to expel it from production. This is what Marx called capitalism’s “moving contradiction”.[1] While it constitutes the essence of our mode of production, this contradiction today backfires, turning political economy into a mode of permanent devastation. 2. The reason for this change of fortune is the objective failure of the labour-capital dialectic: the unprecedented acceleration in technological automation since the 1980s causes more labour-power to be ejected from production than (re)absorbed. The contraction of the volume of wages means that the purchasing power of a growing part of the world population is falling, with debt and immiseration as inevitable consequences. 3. As less surplus-value is produced, capital seeks immediate returns in the debt-leveraged financial sector rather than in the real economy or by investing in socially constructive sectors like education, research, and public services.
​  ​The bottom line is that the paradigm shift underway is the necessary condition for the (dystopian) survival of capitalism, which is no longer able to reproduce itself through mass wage-labour and the attendant consumerist utopia. The pandemic agenda was dictated, ultimately, by systemic implosion: the profitability downturn of a mode of production which rampant automation is making obsolete. For this immanent reason, capitalism is increasingly dependent on public debt, low wages, centralisation of wealth and power, a permanent state of emergency, and financial acrobatics.

​  Thanks Marjorie, for this long, informative resource, very well researched and formatted: 
The Snake-Oil Salesmen and the COVID-Zero Con: A Classic Bait-And-Switch for a Lifetime of Booster Shots (Immunity as a Service)
​...​But this essay demonstrates that never-ending boosters were the initial motive for this global social-engineering shell game ― the subscription-based business model, adapted for the pharmaceutical industry. "Immunity as a service".​..
Don't...​ ​Compliance is the glue that holds tyranny together. Non-compliance breaks it apart. One person alone cannot stop this. But if millions find the courage to raise their voices and the courage to refuse to participate in the system on these tyrannical medical terms, it will throw the system into such a crisis and create such a tension that the community will be forced to confront the issue. Without enough truckers, no-one eats. Without enough medical staff, hospitals close. Without enough workers, supply chains break. Without enough policemen, laws cannot be enforced. Without enough garbage collectors, cities grind to a halt. Without enough cashiers, box stores cannot stay open. Without enough administrators, institutions cease to function. Without enough staff, corporations lose profits. Without enough servers, restaurants cannot serve their customers. And without enough customers, businesses are brought to their knees.

​Spartacus Speaks: Whoever this guy (writes like one) is, I confirm the validity of his medical facts. This is a little of the summary.
  Either through a leak or an intentional release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a deadly SARS strain is now endemic across the globe, after the WHO and CDC and public officials first downplayed the risks, and then intentionally incited a panic and lockdowns that jeopardized people’s health and their livelihoods.
 This was then used by the utterly depraved and psychopathic aristocratic class who rule over us as an excuse to coerce people into accepting an injected poison which may be a depopulation agent, a mind control/pacification agent in the form of injectable “smart dust”, or both in one. They believe they can get away with this by weaponizing the social stigma of vaccine refusal. They are incorrect.
  Their motives are clear and obvious to anyone who has been paying attention. These megalomaniacs have raided the pension funds of the free world. Wall Street is insolvent and has had an ongoing liquidity crisis since the end of 2019. The aim now is to exert total, full-spectrum physical, mental, and financial control over humanity before we realize just how badly we’ve been extorted by these maniacs.
  The pandemic and its response served multiple purposes for the Elite:
• Concealing a depression brought on by the usurious plunder of our economies conducted by rentier-capitalists and absentee owners who produce absolutely nothing of any value to society whatsoever. Instead of us having a very predictable Occupy Wall Street Part II, the Elites and their stooges got to stand up on television and paint themselves as wise and all-powerful saviors instead of the marauding cabal of despicable land pirates that they are.
• Destroying small businesses and eroding the middle class.
• Transferring trillions of dollars of wealth from the American public and into the pockets of billionaires and special interests.
• Engaging in insider trading, buying stock in biotech companies and shorting brick-and-mortar businesses and travel companies, with the aim of collapsing face-to-face commerce and tourism and replacing it with e-commerce and servitization.
• Creating a casus belli for war with China, encouraging us to attack them, wasting American lives and treasure and driving us to the brink of nuclear armageddon.
• Establishing technological and biosecurity frameworks for population control and technocratic- socialist “smart cities” where everyone’s movements are despotically tracked, all in anticipation of widespread automation, joblessness, and food shortages, by using the false guise of a vaccine to compel cooperation.

  1. I have a relative in a large hospital system, who has bought the entire covd scared to an extreme degree. I sent her this article to see if she could confirm, deny, or plead ignorance of  what this doctor is saying about the reasons so many doctors go along with the panic. Her first response was to say she had a hard time finding his practice (he is retired) and he sounds like a disgruntled person. When I responded that disgruntled people often are the ones telling the truth she responded with more ad hominem attacks. I am wondering if this doctor's screed makes sense to you. If so, we are indeed in a world of hurt, and people like you who stand up are all the more important. 

    thanks you,dave in georgetown

    1. I read that article, David. I am not in private practice, not doing hospital work, and had prescribed ivermectin for COVID from August 2020 to early this month/September. The intricacies of compliance, and the emphasis on checking the right boxes have really taken over the practice of medicine more than most people could imagine. Electronic records, accessible by all payers/insurers/regulators, do give monitoring computers, with AI software, far away, a review of every keystroke. That is measured, tabulated, graded, and determines payment. He is more ware of specifics of that than I am.

  2. "Debt-leveraged financialization is contemporary capitalism’s only line of flight"
    Chinese capitalism appears to be taking a different route, with the CPC letting the rentiers take a hit in order to keep the real economy going.

    1. Letting speculators take a hit to preserve economic fundamentals is kind of old-school capitalist, isn't it?

    2. It would certainly be the advice of old-school economists who warned against market capture by monopolists and rentiers. But it shows that debt-leveraged financialization is not contemporary capitalism’s only line of flight.

  3. ​Spartacus Speaks - "Either through a leak or an intentional release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a deadly SARS strain is now endemic across the globe"
    "I confirm the validity of his medical facts"

    If you can confirm this virus definitely came from or via a laboratory, perhaps you'd like to share the evidence for this.

    1. The evidence that it is a lab virus lies in the code. For instance, sections of code exist that do not occur in nature, only in labs, due to convenience in creating a given protein. There is a furin cleavage site added, which no natural coronavirus ever had, but which enhances pathogenicity for a weaponized virus. Adding a furin cleavage site is a common weaponization upgrade. There are sequences of code lifted directly form HIV, the most studied human viral pathogen, so well understood. You can do searches. I have posted things like that repeatedly, as have others.
      The specific lab it leaked from might not be the Wuhan lab, though:

    2. Many coronaviruses have furin cleavage sites. See here for example:
      •Furin cleavage sites at spike S1/S2 are common in coronaviruses.
      •Furin cleavage sites at spike S1/S2 naturally occurred independently for multiple times in coronaviruses.

    3. Your other points are rather vague, so it's hard to know exactly what you mean.

      "sections of code exist that do not occur in nature" - what sections exactly?
      "sequences of code lifted directly form HIV" - which sections exactly?
      (Obviously the sections in question may be too long to practically post here, but you could indicate whatever research identified them.)

      I do agree that if it leaked from or via a lab, it needn't have been the WIV. But I see no conclusive evidence that it did come from or via a lab, any more than I see conclusive evidence it did not. Meanwhile, the recent discovery of bats in Laos harbouring coronaviruses similar to SARS-CoV-2 seems to lend weight to a natural origin.

    4. The ribonucleotides used in lab construction of viruses to get the same proteins, differ from those that occur in coronaviruses in nature. I am sorry to not have ready access to specifics. Functional sequence insertions are different from random mutations, and a lot of the "5% difference" between SARS-CoV-2 family and the most closely related bat coronaviruses is functional, not random. This 5% difference has no plausible lineage. Luc Montagnier and others have surmised this was a lab virus from early 2020, after reviewing the published sequence.
      You seem to have an actual interest.
      Here is what I got from a quick search on HIV sequence: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.01.30.927871v1
      Did you look at the Fort Detrick post?

    5. Oh, thanks for the Furin cleavage sites in coronaviruses paper. Indeed, none of the potential lineage for ARS-CoV-2 has them, as the paper acknowledges. How does one get from a bat virus to an ACE-2 receptor binding human virus, perfectly adapted to humans, less so to bats? A lab is necessary. It's what readily works, and what is funded, and what was being worked on in the US, Canada and China, at least.

    6. "none of the potential lineage for SARS-CoV-2 has them"
      That should read none of the potential lineage found so far. Bats in Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and China harbour viruses similar to SARS-CoV-2, and only a tiny fraction have been sampled.

    7. Seeking truth or arguing a position?

    8. It appears the recently discovered Laos viruses have something just a couple of mutations away from the furin cleavage site found in SARS-CoV-2.
      Linfa Wang, Michael Worobey, Jesse Bloom and Alina Chan discuss the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
      It's an hour long, and well worth watching, but if you're short of time, the bit about furin cleavage sites starts at 50:51 (Linfa Wang):
      The viruses recently found in bats in Laos don't have furin cleavage sites, but the amino acid sequences at the relevant points in their genomes are very similar to the furin cleavage site in SARS-CoV-2, making it even more plausible that the latter arose naturally. (My summary; not his exact words.)

      As for arguing a position, my position is that anyone who says it definitely did come from or via a lab is wrong, just as anyone saying it's definitely entirely natural is wrong - we just don't have enough evidence yet.

    9. That's a good position, and I see that you are sincere in that.

      All of us have to make decisions and take actions each day.
      We have to have working models of the world, current events, how things work, what next week, next month and next year might look like.

      Sometimes our models break down suddenly. Stock market crashes happen, like 2008.
      There is not really a stock market now, and the appearance cannot be sustained in the zombie financial system.
      There will be some kind of abrupt reset some day soon.
      We don't know what, or what day, because it's like a big battle amongst elite power factions, and the people, too.

      I know that elite-owners need to cull a major part of their human herds, and without nuclear war, and that they have big and permanent R&D budgets for that.

      This virus having leaked from Ft. Detrick in May/June 2019 fits well with circumstantial evidence, and with the classification in the US of all evidence indicating that SARS-CoV-2 was already in this country in fall/winter 2019.

      Most of us have confirmation-bias. We need actionable information, and we have some inertia. I had a patient almost dies of coronavirus in November/December 2019, and I saw his discharge summary in January 2020, when Bad-Coronavirus was a "thing".
      His hospital team lacked that perspective.

      This is the larger context in which I see the evidene of lab formation of this virus as being actionably-certain. Little that I do really needs it to be certain. It appears, to me highly likely, as it has since late January of 2020.

      There is a lot to act upon each day, and no year going forward will be like the preceding year, from now on.

      I just don't know how things will play out. It's like war.

  4. Hi John. What your garden needs if fig trees! My father-in-law, 93 years old, has been growing them in Chelsea MA just north of Boston since the early 60s when he came over from Italy. They grow like weeds, almost as easy as sumac. In the Fall you dig a trench on one side of the tree. Bind up the branches like a Christmas tree for delivery. Cut the roots with a shovel on the opposite side of the trench. Pull the tree down so it lays in the trench, it's pliable enough. Cover the tree with left over plants from the garden that you would normally mulch. The decomposing plants generate enough heat to keep the core and most of the branches from freezing. Cover the tree and plants with sheet plastic, tarp, or plywood. Through the dirt from the trench on top of that. This is the best part, it now looks like you got a body buried in the garden which is a great way to keep any problem neighbors from bothering you!:) In the Spring dig out and stand the tree up. Fill around with the trench dirt. Trim any damaged branch ends. Cut a few small twigs or branch ends off and plug them in the ground. Water regularly and about half of them will take and grow. In a few years you will have trees of a few different sizes and when one gets to big you have smaller ones growing in it's place. Rinse and repeat!

    Now after all that, all you probably need to do is cover with plastic in a freeze like your avocados. I like the dark figs best and figs are my favorite fruit. I had fun sharing this. Hope you enjoyed hearing how we do it in the cold areas. Next time I'll share a funny wine making story with my Father-in-Law.

    Stay Strong. Peace. Dennis MGH

    1. Hi Dennis,

      You can't see 2 fig trees off the right side of the picture, where most of the fruit trees are located, the pears, figs, apples, plums and a persimmon. That sounds like a lot, but the hotter weather (usually) and drier conditions, and visiting deer, have all taken a toll. Climate zone is 9A, with fairly mild freezes. Figs died back in February, but one came back and I replaced the other. I have sprouted a few fig seedlings in the past. I have a drip system for the fruit trees, but they probably need more than they got this summer.
