Targeted Exterminations

 Potentially Targeted,

  Ugo Bardi's "Age of Exterminations'' series gives useful perspective on how societies have exterminated members, or classes within a society, for the profit of others, or sometimes because there was not enough food from a bad crop year.
  Let me start with the base case of human society killing some members of an extended family/clan as "witches" when heavy rains or drought have drastically reduced the supply of food. In the area of Tanzania studied, fed by rain-supplied agriculture, there are twice as many witch-killings in years of excessive rainfall, when crops are damaged, as in years of normal rainfall. The victims are typically elderly women, killed by family-members.
Poverty and Witch Killing,  Edward Miguel, U. Cal. Berkeley, 2005

  I would take the above as mostly a case of famine killing poor people. Western witch killings in Europe and North America did come in hard times, bad winters, the Little Ice Age, but also befell those with some property, and little protection. there was profit to be made. 
Killing an elderly great-aunt, when everybody is hungry, seems like a variation on the theme of people starving to death in famine.

The Age of Exterminations VI: "The Great Famine To Come", looks at  the Irish Potato Famine as a historical example. 
  The Irish people were subsisting on potatoes, brought from the new world, and much of the land was owned by others, who produced grain and livestock for export and to feed the troops of the British Empire. 
The Irish peasant farmers had been saddled with all of the risk, and they died when potato blight destroyed their food. 
The crown was "reluctant" to interfere in the economic markets... 
The Irish peasants had "owned nothing and were happy", until they had no food, having unknowingly assumed all of the economic risk of the system by having no other recourse but to eat potatoes they grew, or to die.
  The lesson here is that having no options, which is to be poor, and not to "own the means of food production" makes one a ready target for extermination through widespread famine. Universal Basic Income would be a chute into this outcome, as would any form of government handout that became an only-means-of-eating.
  So, to kill large numbers of poor people, cut off the food supply. It can look like anything made it happen. It happens periodically.
  Professor Bardi looks at The Limits To Growth graphs and the revision to that. We can expect industrialized food production and delivery to have major problems as industrial economy contracts. (Mr. Gates seems to be well invested in farmland.)
  One might find ways to assure one's food, water and fuel through a hard spell, but one would not be able to do so in a social vacuum. 
Consider helping feed your community, or being a member of a community that largely feeds itself, if that is possible.

The Age Of Exterminations IV: "How To Kill The Rich", looks at the opposite end of the wealth spectrum. Wealth is sustained through force, through threat of violence. The rich who are inadequately protected by private armies, or a government army, are subject to ambush, sudden and overwhelming ambush. 
It's typically rich and powerful sociopaths that can conspire to do this. 
That could include the king, the pope, the CIA, the FBI, the Mob, or the army, but it has to be people with trained killers who can keep a secret.

The next two essays seem to share the common thread of killing those who are somewhat gullible, susceptible to propaganda, and crowd mania. 

The Age Of Exterminations III: "How to Exterminate The Young", is really about exterminating a lot of the young men in a society in WW-1. 
  Propagandized young Italian men got whipped into a mass rage and went off to take back pieces of Italy from Austrians who were offering to give it back if Italy remained neutral. Half of them died. People became much more wary after that. 
  In the US, it was the Civil War that made Americans wary. 
Mechanized warfare is mass slaughter. The survivors will subsequently understand that. 
It has mostly been wiped from the American memory by having smaller wars in places nobody knows, starting with Grenada.
Americans could be susceptible again. Vietnam is almost forgotten now, almost...

The Age Of Exterminations V: "Suicide As A Weapon Of Mass Destruction", is really about tricking people into taking poison, but they will do it best, if they do not know they are taking poison. They could just be doing something "good for their health", or "going to a hospital", or "taking a shower".
  Poisoners throughout history have been a devious and cunning lot.
Sometimes the people who do not take the poison with everybody else get shot. Sometimes they get away.  
  Sometimes people do kill themselves and their families, rather than be taken by enemy soldiers. 
I think that is different from being tricked into taking poison...

COVID Vaccines in teenagers::
This week’s U.S. data for 12- to 17-year-olds show:
​  ​21,921 total adverse events, including 1,325 rated as serious and 25 reported deaths. Two of the 25 deaths were suicides.
​  ​The most recent death involves a 12-year-old girl (VAERS I.D. 1784945) who died from a respiratory tract hemorrhage 22 days after receiving her first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine.
​  ​Another recent death includes a 15-year-old male who died six days after receiving his first dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine. According to his VAERS report (VAERS I.D. 1764974), the previously healthy teen complained of brief unilateral shoulder pain five days after receiving his COVID vaccine.
​  ​The next day he played with two friends at a community pond, swung on a rope swing, flipped into the air, and landed in the water feet first. He surfaced, laughed and told his friends “Wow, that hurt!” He then swam toward shore underwater, as was his usual routine, but did not re-emerge.
​  ​An autopsy showed no external indication of a head injury, but there was a small subgaleal hemorrhage — a rare, but lethal bleeding disorder — over the left occiput. In addition, the boy had a mildly elevated cardiac mass, increased left ventricular wall thickness and small foci of myocardial inflammation of the lateral wall of the left ventricle with myocyte necrosis
 (dead heart muscle)  consistent with myocardial infarction.​ 

​Look at the slides. Do a quick skim. This fully-vaccinated man supports early antiviral treatment for low-risk young people, and for anybody who catches COVID.
FDA experts ask why Kids are “dropping like flies” right after getting the Covid-19 Vaccine as they meet to debate authorisation of the Pfizer jab for 5-11-year-olds
​Steve Kirs​ch, Executive Director of the Covid-19 Early Treatment Fund was invited to speak at the meeting and due to the short time frame given to speak he felt it was best to prepare 30 slides which asked some extremely serious questions on the safety of giving an experimental injection to children.

Scientist Whose Wife Was Injured by COVID Vaccine Tells FDA: ‘Please Do Not Give This to Kids’​ 
   ​During his 3-minute testimony, Dressen, a chemist with an extensive background in researching and assessing the degree of efficacy in new technologies, told the FDA advisory panel Pfizer’s vaccine “failed any reasonable risk-benefit calculus in connection with children.”
​  ​Dressen said:
“Your decision is being rushed, based on incomplete data from underpowered trials, insufficient to predict rates of severe and long-lasting adverse reactions. I urge the committee to reject the EUA [Emergency Use Authorization] modification and direct Pfizer to perform trials that will decisively demonstrate that the benefits outweigh the risks for children. I understand firsthand the impact that you will or will not have with the decision you’re going to make today.”

​Public Health Scotland data: Thanks Jeremy.
The latest official Public Health data shows that the fully vaccinated accounted for 85% of Covid-19 deaths in the past four weeks, whilst also accounting for 75% of Covid-19 hospitalisations and 61% of alleged Covid-19 cases from September 25th through to October 22nd.

​  "Original Antigenic Sin" is an off-putting term for a really critical immunologic mechanism, which is well explained and documented here. I'd like to call it something less prone to cause people's minds to immediately shut off, something like "Immunological Imprinting"​.   (Hats off to Konrad Lorenz.)
Oh, look, that's what this article in Nature calls it; just what I thought of.
  Here is the article that Marjorie sent me, explaining that the human adaptive immune system creates an antibody response to the first variant of a viral family that it gets infected by. Flu is an example, and coronavirus is a family that keeps mutating and adapting as time goes by, like influenza.
  The memory B cells that are ready to make those antibodies go on vacation until the virus comes back, then pounce into action with the response they know so well. They do that in a couple of days, well before novice immune cells can mount a new response, more specific to this mutated variant. 
That usually works OK, but not always, and sometimes it can be worse than nothing if the new virus has mutated to exploit that fixed antibody response.
  That is called "ADE", antibody dependent enhancement of viral pathogenicity, and it is one of the banes of vaccine makers. It usually only happens when the vaccine is the first exposure of a naive immune system to a viral family. It happened with a Rotavirus vaccine in the US, and recently with a Dengue vaccine in the tropics.   That Dengue vaccine killed a lot of kids when they caught a different strain of Dengue from what they had been vaccinated against. It inhibited one Dengue virus, but enhanced the new improved version.
  It is already apparent how that is working with coronaviruses in general and with COVID vaccines against the January 2020 spike protein in particular. People who have had other coronaviruses in the past mount that response again, early, and it is not specific to SARS-CoV-2, but it is usually good enough to keep the viral load down from the outset and prevent more than mild illness. 
  Those same people who had prior coronavirus infection do not make as many specific antibodies to the 2020 spike protein when they get vaccinated, because they mainly trigger the prior learned response. 
  People who get the January 2020 spike protein as an imprint are already making antibodies known to enhance certain infectious actions of the Delta variant, helping it to enter human cells more rapidly. 
They do not make any antibodies to the other 84% of a coronavirus, and they might never be any good at doing that for the rest of their lives.
  Any children who have not already caught a coronavirus, who are vaccinated with current products,  may be impaired from ever mounting an adequate immune response to any future coronavirus...  
That is precisely a very bad thing to do to each of those children, and to the human herd.

Children should NOT get vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19, according to Harvard University professor of medicine Martin Kulldorff.
​ “They can be infected, just like they can get the common cold, but they’re not a big threat. They don’t die from this, except in very rare circumstances. So if you want to talk about protecting children or keeping children safe, I think we can talk about traffic accidents, for example, which they are really at some risk.​"​     
Thanks Jeremy.

The Age Of Extermination

 Omitted From Statistical Analysis,

  I posted about the smoke, mirrors and hand-waving that went into the Pfizer trial for Pediatric approval of their vaccine, which should have had something like 60,000 subjects to find anything but the most common adverse events. It vaccinated 1,131 children 12-15, so it was unlikely to pick up even one case of myocarditis, which appears to be 1/5000 in this cohort. It was likely to sail through with no adverse events. There was at least one very adverse event, and they have to pretend it did  not happen. So far, that is working. Wall-of-silence... The mother of the child had her public notification (ad) disallowed, censored.
​  ​When Stephanie and Patrick de Garay enrolled their 12-year-old child Maddie and her two brothers in Pfizer’s Covid-19 clinical trial, they believed they were doing the right thing.
​  ​That decision has turned into a nightmare.  Maddie, a previously healthy, energetic, full of life child, was within 24 hours of her second dose reduced to crippling, scream-inducing pain that landed her in the emergency room where she described feeling like someone was “ripping [her] heart out through [her] neck.”
​  ​Over the next several months the nightmare continued, during which Maddie was hospitalized several times and suffered numerous systemic injuries, requires a tube through her nose that carries her food and medicine, and a wheelchair for assistance.
​  ​Ms. de Garay documented every detail of Maddie’s injury and reported it to the principal investigator for the Pfizer trial at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where the vaccine clinical trial was occurring and where Maddie was treated and admitted.  They first tried to treat Maddie as “a mental patient,” telling the family it was psychological and in Maddie’s imagination.  Then they claimed it was unrelated to the vaccine (copy of recording with hospital below), and when that argument failed, Pfizer listed this traumatic adverse event as “functional abdominal pain” when reporting to the FDA.
​  ​Ms. de Garay reported what occurred to the CDC and FDA through VAERS in June 2021 but nobody from these agencies sought additional information or followed-up with the de Garays.  Ms. de Garay also reached out to Dr. Nath, a Chief in the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, responded by stating he was “Sorry to hear of your daughter’s illness” and that “We have certainly heard of a lot of cases of neurological complications form [sic] the vaccine and will be glad to share our experience with them.”  (Copy of this email is below.)  Unfortunately, other than a call arranged by Maddie’s neurologist, there was no follow-up or response from NIH or any other federal health agency.  Even after Ms. de Garay did a press event on June 28, 2021 with Senator Ron Johnson, neither Pfizer nor any health agency reached out in any manner to address Maddie’s injury or obtain any additional information.

Ten red flags in the FDA's risk-benefit analysis of Pfizer's EUA application to inject American children 5 to 11 with its mRNA product
​1)​ COVID-19 rates in children ages 5 to 11 are so low that there were ZERO cases of severe COVID-19 and ZERO cases of death from COVID in either the treatment (n= 1,518) or control group (n= 750). So any claims you see in the press about the Pfizer vaccine being “90% effective” in children are meaningless​...
2) ​Pfizer’s clinical trial in kids was intentionally undersized to hide harms. This is a well known trick of the pharmaceutical industry. The FDA even called them out on it earlier this summer and asked Pfizer to expand the trial and Pfizer just ignored them because they can.​..
3) ​Pfizer only enrolled “participants 5-11 years of age without evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection.” Does the Pfizer mRNA shot wipe out natural immunity and leave one worse-off than doing nothing as shown in this data from the British government? Pfizer has no idea because children with prior SARS-CoV-2 infection were excluded...
4) ​Did Pfizer LOSE CONTACT with 4.9% of their clinical trial participants? The FDA risk-benefit document states: “Among Cohort 1 participants, 95.1% had safety follow-up ≥2 months after Dose 2 at the time of the September 6, 2021 data cutoff.” So what happened with those 4.9% who did not have safety follow-up 2 months after Dose 2? Were they in the treatment or control group?​  (Note:​ ​Throwing out just a few data points you don't like can work WONDERS for a small study.)
​5) ​The follow up period was intentionally too short. This is another well-know trick of the pharmaceutical industry designed to hide harms. Cohort 1 appears to have been followed for 2 months, cohort 2 was only monitored for adverse events for 17 days. Many harms from vaccines including cancer and autoimmune disorders take much longer to show up...
6) The risk-benefit model created by the FDA only looks at one known harm from the Pfizer mRNA shot — myocarditis. But we know that the real world harms from the Pfizer mRNA shot go well beyond myocarditis and include anaphylaxis, Bell’s Palsy, heart attack, thrombocytopenia/ low platelet, permanent disability, shingles, and Guillain-BarrĂ© Syndrome (GBS) to name a few. Cancer, diabetes, endocrine disruption, and autoimmune disorders may show up later...
7)  Pfizer intentionally wipes out the control group as soon as they can by vaccinating all of the kids who initially got the placebo. They claim that they are doing this for “ethical reasons”. But everyone knows that Pfizer’s true aim is to wipe out any comparison group so that there can be no long term safety studies.
8) Given all of the above, how on earth did the FDA claim any benefits at all from this shot? You should probably sit down for this part because it’s a doozy! Here’s the key sentence:
  Vaccine effectiveness was inferred by immunobridging SARS-CoV-2 50% neutralizing antibody titers (NT50, SARS-CoV-2 mNG microneutralization assay).
Wait, what!? I’ll explain. There were ZERO cases of severe COVID-19 in the clinical trial of children ages 5 to 11. So Pfizer and the FDA just ignored all of the actual health outcomes (they had to, there is no emergency, so the application is moot). INSTEAD Pfizer switched to looking at antibodies in the blood. In general, antibodies are a poor predictor of immunity. And the antibodies in the blood of these 5 to 11 year old children tell us nothing because again, there were zero cases of severe COVID-19 in this study (none in the treatment group, none in the control group).

9) The FDA model only assesses the benefits of vaccine protection in a 6-month period after completion of two doses. Furthermore it assumes constant vaccine efficacy during that time period. This is problematic on several counts.
First, reducing mild cases in children is not a desired clinical outcome...

Second, we know that vaccine efficacy in the month after the first dose is negative because it suppresses the immune system and it begins to wane after 4 months so all of the FDA’s estimates of vaccine efficacy are inflated.
Third, the harms of myocarditis from these shots will likely unfold over the course of years.
​10)​ The FDA/Pfizer play fast and loose with their estimates of myocarditis.​..
​  So (if the Biden administration has its way) 106 excess myocarditis cases per 1 million x 28.38 million people would be 3,009 excess myocarditis cases post-vaccination if the Pfizer vaccine is approved.
​  ​And over the course of several years many of those children will die. Dr. Anthony Hinton (“Consultant Surgeon with 30 years experience in the NHS”) points out that myocarditis has a 20% fatality rate after 2 years and a 50% fatality rate after 5 years.

So the FDA has it exactly backwards — they want to prevent mild COVID in children which reduces herd immunity and they just flat out lie about the harms from myocarditis.​   (So why would the FDA want to do something exactly wrong with so many children? Just business?)​

Urgent: Send This Letter Today to Congress Outlining Threat COVID Vaccines Pose to the Health of Our Nation’s Young Children
​  ​In a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Children’s Health Defense highlighted peer-reviewed research showing children have virtually zero risk of hospitalization and death from COVID, and outlined the vaccine’s risks. Please send the letter to your members of Congress.

​  ​Informed consent disclosure to vaccine trial subjects of risk of COVID-19 vaccines worsening clinical disease​  ​12/04/2020
Conclusions drawn from the study and clinical implications: The specific and significant COVID-19 risk of ADE​ (antibody dependent enhancement of viral pathogenicity) should have been and should be prominently and independently disclosed to research subjects currently in vaccine trials, as well as those being recruited for the trials and future patients after vaccine approval​ (nobody has gotten an approved vaccine dose yet), in order to meet the medical ethics standard of patient comprehension for informed consent.

​  There are a lot of pieces of evidence that SARS-CoV-2 immunization weakens existing protection against COVID , in those already recovered, and also reduces immune (antibody) response to infection, in those who get infected after prior vaccination.
​  In March, researchers from Mount Sinai in New York and Hospital La Paz in Madrid posted a preprint study indicating that at least the second Pfizer shot might weaken T cell immunity. In a shocking discovery after monitoring a group of vaccinated people both with and without prior infection, they found "in individuals with a pre-existing immunity against SARS-CoV-2, the second vaccine dose not only fail to boost humoral immunity but determines a contraction of the spike-specific T cell response." They also note that other research has shown "the second vaccination dose appears to exert a detrimental effect in the overall magnitude of the spike-specific humoral response in COVID-19 recovered individuals."

Why won’t the CDC or FDA reveal the VAERS URF?​ 
The vaccine adverse event reporting system has always been under-reported for adverse events, often over 100:1. The worse the event, the more likely it is to be reported, but we know that deaths from heart attack or stroke within 2 days of a vaccination dose are often not reported, and the connection denied.
​What is the under-reporting-factor (URF) being used for death, for severe adverse events and for milder adverse events? Why won't this be made public for review?

The Age of Extermination (I) : Who Are The Typical Victims? Professor Ugo Bardi
  If you think of the story of the witch hunts of the 16th-17th century in Europe, you may be under the impression that the typical witch was an old hag living in a hut at the margins of the village, alone with a black cat.
  But no, that wasn't the case. Maybe this kind of marginal people were occasionally killed for being witches, but they were not the usual victims. In reality, witch hunting had a strong monetary component and it was often carried out with a view on making a profit on the confiscation of the assets of the victims. They were not poor and destitute women but, rather, members of the growing mercantile class in Europe.
  The profit-making facet of witch hunting has been often ignored by historians, but it is being reappraised and highlighted in recent times, for instance by Johannes Dillinger (2021) and by Shmakov and Petrov (2018). Both articles are highly suggested and provide a remarkable wealth of data about the financial mechanism that led to witch hunts: in short, there was no (or very little) witch hunting where the government didn't allow the assets of the victims to be confiscated. Killing witches, then, was just one of the many forms of legalized robbery in history,..
  Without going into the details, we can say that all these exterminations have several points in common.
1. A relatively wealthy subgroup of society that can be identified by physical, linguistic, or cultural traits, sufficiently large to give a good revenue if defeated and spoiled of its assets.
2. A strained economic, social, or military situation that leads the dominant groups to look for new resources.
3. The lack of effective military defense capabilities on the part of the subgroup...
​ It has happened so many times that it is unthinkable that it won't happen again. There is no doubt that we are in a difficult moment, both economically and militarily. So, the temptation is strong for the elites to identify one or more subgroups to exterminate and rob of their assets. 
Who could be the next victims?

​  ​"Now I think I can propose the answer​"​:
The most likely target for the next extermination round are middle-class retirees.
​  ​Retirees satisfy all the requirements: They are identifiable, of course, they are old! They are often relatively wealthy and, more than that, they cost a lot of money in terms of health care. Finally, they can hardly put up serious military resistance. Exterminating the middle-class elders would be both easy and profitable​...

In practice, the weak spot of the middle-class retirees is that they need medical assistance and that they cannot normally pay the skyrocketing costs on their personal saving. So, they could be gently removed from the state budget by degrading the public health care system while saying that it is being modified in order to protect them...

....society as a whole is a complex network with a certain ability to process information. It does that without being "conscious" of what is being done: there is no plan, no specific objectives to reach. But often society moves as a whole in a specific direction.

​  In this case, Western Society seems to perceive the problem created by an excess of elderly people, and it is moving to solve it. It is brutal, yes, but only individuals have moral restraints, society as a whole has none. Every decision taken individually affects all the other decisions, and we are seeing the results. It is nothing new in history where, typically, everything that happens, happens because it had to happen.

Requesting Pediatric Clemency

 Adult Children,

  Thanks Cat, for sending this contact information for those who will vote to decide upon injecting young children with COVID vaccines, which will clearly cause far more death and harm in their lives than will COVID, which they tolerate extremely well, and to which they will have lasting, natural immunity. I bccd all the emails into an addressee box and wrote a nice, polite and collegial email. There are also phone numbers.
  The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) will meet on Oct. 26 to discuss emergency use authorization of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. Then the decision goes to the FDA Commissioner for her sign off.
​  ​Following the FDA decisions, Pfizer’s application will reviewed by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) at their meeting on Nov. 2-3. And then the ACIP decision is reviewed by the CDC Director (the ever-anxious Rochelle Walensky).
​  ​The Biden Administration has already purchased 65 million doses of this vaccine for use in children. If we do nothing, these shots will start being injected into children within days of the ACIP decision.

Those killed by COVID vaccines exceeds those saved for all ages above 20, by Steve Kirsch's data: 
Let's not get data down to 5 years of age, please. The trend is clear.

​  ​A 43-year-old mum who thought says she was doing ‘the right thing’ in getting her Covid vaccine – before suffering from a blood clot and stroke. Kerry Hurt, who in now in a wheelchair, had to have life saving treatment after a blood clot formed on her brain a week after having her AstraZeneca vaccine in April. As part of the operation she had a part of her skull removed and suffered a ‘massive stroke’ which resulted in the left side of her body being paralysed, YorkshireLive reported. A week later fluid built up on her brain which required another life saving operation to insert a drain in her skull, which required another three weeks in intensive care at the Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

Border Patrol To Fire Up To 5K Agents Over (rumored)​ ​Vaccine Mandate

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said Sunday that his state is “actively working to recruit out of state law enforcement” as some lose their jobs due to COVID-19 vaccine mandates. DeSantis told Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” that he’s hoping to sign legislation in the next legislative session that will give a $5,000 bonus to out-of-state law enforcement officials who relocate to Florida. “In Florida, not only are we going to want to protect the law enforcement and all the jobs, we’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement because we do have needs in our police and our sheriffs’ departments,”

​A Tale of Two Civilizations looks at long and short term Chinese strategy for markets, trade and currency.​
If I may compress: 
  Taiwan makes 2/3 of the world's computer chips and is contested between China, the Taiwanese, other Asian countries, other chip users, and the US/West. The first order of business for all, is to keep the chips coming. The second order of business is to deny them to one's competitors. China may have another order of business, if it needs a war to hold the country together. Taiwan does not want to be taken over again. It is already too much of Taiwan's history. Not mentioned is the interest of countries like Japan and Korea, which want Taiwan to be independent for reasons of economics, and also due to the threats they face if China overruns Taiwan.
  China has seen the $US as doomed for 50 years, at least in some ruling circles. China has been building gold bullion stores since around 1980, and they are probably bigger than what is admitted, maybe several times bigger. This might be revealed when the $US appears weak, to support a global reserve currency, perhaps backed by gold, which would serve Chinese interests.
  China sees the US as morally degenerate, which is more apparent in the western media, so China curtails Chinese media presentations that weaken family and traditional social structures.
  China manages the Chinese economy as a command economy at the strategic level, but not at the day to day level, and is taking steps to gently deflate wealth bubbles that are making the poor get poorer.
  The West is currently "defeating itself" to borrow from Sun Tzu's  "Art od War". China is not interfering much. (Maybe fanning a flame, here and there.)

Software Ate the World and Now Has Indigestion
 ​  ​The vision of software eating the world is part and parcel of the compelling fantasy that humans will soon be free from the drudgery of work and scarcity and bask in near-infinite abundance due to techno-magic. Those most taken by this vision are never the ones trying to keep the software and robotics from failing, because those laboring to keep the whole mess from collapsing know the limits are far more real than the magical-thinking enthusiasts understand.​..
​  Consider all those apps which are supposed to be the epitome of automated productivity: if software is so great, then why do the apps need thousands of ghost workers to keep the kludgy mess semi-functional? Hidden behind the shiny happy facade of automated software wonderland, thousands of poorly paid humans have to do the hard bits that software fails to do or fails to do properly.

Longer Conversations


  I have long wondered how people might join life-forces outside of the top-down economic model, which now dominates. 
Is there an app for that?

  This week I have had long talks, serious talks about our world, with good old friends of like mind, and others of like mind, more recently met. It's been spontaneous.
Getting fired in the garden on Monday did open that door, and I did announce it in public on the blog. It was all quite satisfying, and we all had the same things on our mind. 

  The current power elites in finance, government, media, and especially the spook-world need to stay in power through the coming economic transition out of the exponential-growth economy. 
  That is a transition out of the last 300 years of western economy, which is already way more than most people know. It is basically all that anybody knows, and it has all been an anomaly. The anomaly happened due to discovering a lot of free-energy and metal ores that worked well to exploit free energy and metal ores, which worked well...
  That is in terminal decline now. The production of useful things with energy and mineral resources has been such a good production engine that it has been able to carry a whole lot of non-productive humans and even counterproductive and destructive humans. 
What a marvelous mule!  The mule has been fed worse and less, and is covered with leeches and ticks now. It is weakening.

  The leeches and ticks have a plan to lighten the mule's load by getting rid of the guy with the cart and the feed bag. That guy might be us.
That's my analogy, and I'm sticking to it. The plan the leeches have might work for the lifespan of a leech, or maybe not quite that long.

  What are the details of the leech's plan?
I don't know, but the number of humans the earth can sustain long term keeps being quoted as half a billion to a billion. 
That's redundancy for nine out of ten of us. Time seems short. There is a sense of urgency all around.
Usually, big wars are used to kill off a lot of the population, but not  90% of the world.
That would destroy all of the stuff, too, and the leeches need the stuff to survive.

  Some kind of a controlled cull, fast, but not too fast, with some control elements, can be provided with pestilence and famine, without war. Wars need to avoid destroying critical infrastructure and resource access. Resources can be put into mothballs, as war did to oil under Iraq and Libya. 

  Global digital currency can cut any person out at any time, causing a one-person-famine. That is ideally targeted. 
What is necessary is to maintain fealty to the owners. If the owners hold the key to life itself, which might be the treatment for the latest mortal threat, then they can eliminate those who do not comply. They can maintain control.

  Who lives compliantly under those conditions? 
Maybe not pilots for Southwest, and nuclear physicists at Los Alamos. Maybe not Chicago and LA cops. 
I won't bend that knee. I won't betray my patients. 

  Can I live without complying with the imposed conditions? I can live today.
I am preparing for times of irregular food and irregular fuel and irregular utilities.
Money looks like it is going to break again, and there are fights over what the fix will be.
Those money-fix fights go on for decades in history. Whoever makes the money at the end is the winner.
Sometimes money is gold and or silver. It could be oil or coal or gas or wheat.
It can only be Bitcoin if there is a "World Wide Web".
A lot of partisan actors can take down the WWW these days.

  What is up with these excess deaths of healthy young people in the western world this year?
There are more heart disease and cancer deaths than there should be. 
It's not just COVID, and drugs and suicides and car accidents.

Jim Kunstler wonders, too:
​  ​The public’s view of this panoramic debacle is apt to flip starkly in the days ahead as five years of mind-fuckery ends in this national drunken driving incident. China may postpone the Evergrande unwind a few weeks longer, but its economy is foundering on the more fundamental energy quandary — it doesn’t have enough fossil fuels to run the joint — and there’s no prospect the situation will improve, meaning that the world will get less of all of the stuff that China was making. In short, Globalism is winding down, and standards of living are sinking with that. The capital markets are gravid with terror over it.
​  ​Meanwhile, the West is seeing the first signs that the Covid-19 vaccines it went cuckoo for may be producing a strange phenomenon of “excess mortality” around the world. Suspiciously higher rates of heart attacks, vascular disorders, cancer, and other bad stuff. It’s downright spooky. In Scotland, for instance, the vaccination rate is 87 percent and weekly deaths are up 30 percent. Pandemic reporter Alex Berenson said on TV that non-Covid-19 deaths were significantly higher everywhere, and he mused out loud that there was some connection between this and the vaccines. Uh oh.
​  ​Social media, network media, and legacy print media do not want that story getting around. Some of the most deranged Wokesters across this land greeted the debut of the mRNA vaccines like a holy jubilee of salvation (and still do!). What happens in their psyches when the darn thing bites them in the ass? There’s a fair chance we’re going to find out, and soon.

​  ​Gerald Celente, a renowned trends researcher, is back this time to talk about the unrelenting full blown “Vax Wars” he predicted many months ago.  Many people are being told “no vax, no job,” and now it’s really heating up.  Celente explains, “The fight is on.  The people that are not going to get it are not going to get it.  They’re done.  The fight is on.  From the very beginning, I said about the ‘Covid War,’ it’s going to be anti-vax, anti-establishment, anti-immigration parties forming.  This is the beginning of a new populous movement like we have never seen before.  It is just the beginning.  Remember, ‘it does not take a majority to prevail, but an irate tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the hearts and minds of men,’ said Samuel Adams...​  ​
​  ​Celente says this is going to end badly, and he’s talking about “the greatest financial crash in history.”  The little guy, meaning “We the People,” should prepare, and time to do that is running short.  Celente says, “Prepare for the worst.  If the worst doesn’t happen and you are prepared, you lose nothing.  If the worst happens and you are not prepared, be prepared to lose everything.  We are in a place that no one could have invented in early January 2020.  You could not make this story up. . .  My biggest fear is they take us to war.”

Florida Gov. DeSantis calls special session to ban COVID-19 vaccine mandates

​Texas Governor Abbott signed an executive order forbidding vaccine mandates in Texas on October 11. It became a kind of law, with up to $1000 fine.
The Federal Vaccine Mandates are not yet law and can be attacked legally as soon as they are declared to be OSHA requirements.

​Texas Senate Bill 51 would have put more teeth in Abbott's executive order, but did not quite have enough votes to pass, and the special session has ended.

​  ​What the British are saying is they are now finding the vaccine interferes with your body’s innate ability after infection to produce antibodies against not just the spike protein but other pieces of the virus. Specifically, vaccinated people don’t seem to be producing antibodies to the nucleocapsid protein, the shell of the virus, which are a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people.
​  ​This means vaccinated people will be far more vulnerable to mutations in the spike protein EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN INFECTED AND RECOVERED ONCE (or more than once, probably).
​ It also means the virus is likely to select for mutations that go in exactly that direction, because those will essentially give it an enormous vulnerable population to infect. And it probably is still more evidence the vaccines may interfere with the development of robust long-term immunity post-infection.  

The titans of global capitalism are exploiting the Covid-19 crisis to institute social credit-style digital ID systems across the West.
​  ​The death by starvation of Etwariya Devi, a 67-year-old widow from the rural Indian state of Jharkhand, might have passed without notice had it not been part of a more widespread trend.
​  ​Like 1.3 billion of her fellow Indians, Devi had been pushed to enroll in a biometric digital ID system called Aadhaar in order to access public services, including her monthly allotment of 25kg of rice. When her fingerprint failed to register with the shoddy system, Devi was denied her food ration. Throughout the course of the following three months in 2017, she was repeatedly refused food until she succumbed to hunger, alone in her home.

Go Down Gardening

 Precariously Supported,

  Yesterday was an odd day in several aspects. I had worked a long Friday at the clinic again, which did not go badly. I left nothing unfinished.
We drove to the Yoakum homestead Friday night and got a good night of sleep.

  Somehow, I felt very heavy and slow on Saturday and Sunday, so I trudged through three to four hours of pushing the little Honda mower, and did work in the garden, but ploddingly. I planted garlic for the winter/spring season, and tended the garden.

  I continued to feel a weight of unease, and as we started the drive back to Austin, Sunday afternoon, I had a sense that I should really buy winter veggies to put in at the clinic garden, which I started in 2016, and tend for my coworkers. Putting things off until the end of the month, in my last two weeks of work there, seemed awkward.

  We picked up a lot of winter greens and salad starts in little pots on our way into Austin, some for our Austin kitchen garden, but most for the clinic garden.
I did a last harvest of the blackeyed pea row, then cut down the vines, and took them to some chickens that a friend of Jenny's raises.

  Yesterday (Monday) morning I worked in our kitchen garden again, preparing the beds for fall and winter, cleaning up the summer debris, and also planting an orange seedling in the bed in front of the house, where the February freeze had killed the one fruitful tree. 

  After eating, I went over to the clinic with an orange seedling, to replace the two that the February freeze had killed, and all of the winter salad and cooking-green seedlings to fill a couple of rows. I went through the entrance, put on a mask, and went through to the garden in the break area, with shovels and clippers, saying "hi" to a few people and smiling with my eyes. I went out through the garden gate, and brought in the orange tree, then the veggie starts.

  The orange tree needed to go in the large bed, which has a Mexican avocado seedling tree, and a banana plant that actually survived February. Mainly it has a lot of sweet potatoes.It's a fairly large bed, and this has been a very good year for sweet potatoes. I filled the three gallon bucket that the tree was in with sweet potatoes, from just a few square feet that I cleared and dug up, before planting it, maybe one percent of that bed.

  While I was digging up the sweet potatoes and digging the hole to put the orange tree in, my flip phone rang. I figured it was Jenny. I brushed some of the dirt off my hands and answered it. It was the nice and very well-mannered youngish man, who is currently Director of Human Resources, telling me that my last day of work had been changed from the last Friday of October to the Friday just passed, which was different from what I had been told last week, when the reason for my firing was changed from vaccine-mandate non-compliance, to all of the wrongs I have committed in the period of time since that mandate was announced.

   It was a lousy spot for him to be put in, and he seemed uncomfortable having to put it into polite words.He had been trying to call me while I was working on our home garden, but I had not been carrying the phone. I told him that I was at the clinic garden, putting in some things for winter, and that he could talk to me in person. My presence in the garden was unanticipated, though I have worked on my day off frequently in the past couple of months. 

  We talked as I planted the orange tree and put the big sweet potatoes in the pot, handing it over to a couple of nurses taking their lunch. They had helped dig sweet potatoes last year, and I knew they wanted some. He politely explained that I was not to re-enter the building, and that my desk would be cleared out and boxed for me. The explanation was so polite that I sought clarification.I did negotiate that I could pick up a few notes at my desk with his presence and supervision, which we then did. My badge didn't let me in this time. He had to use his. As we walked through the clinic to my desk, most people had their eyes down. A few coworkers looked me in the eyes, and I smiled with my eyes. I was comfortable in myself, and emanated that (I think). 

  We grabbed a few boxes and made short work of the packing-up. I got everything, and we carried the three boxes to my little twenty four year old Ford Ranger pickup truck together. We went back to the garden and break-area through the gate, He thought it best that I just leave without planting the vegetables, but I prevailed upon him to keep his agreement to let me clean out the rows and do the planting.

   He actually had a fair number of gardening questions, which I answered as I cleared the rows and planted for winter. 
 I worked expeditiously, taking about twenty to thirty minutes, as I explained the quality of the soil, and how building soil is one of the main objectives in successful gardening. If you don't have enough garden to out produce what the squirrels, birds and other critters can eat, they will eat it all. 
You need a big enough garden patch.

  We walked back to the truck with shovels and clippers, talking about what's next. The clinic will still pay me for these last two weeks of October, but my patients who are scheduled will not get to see me for a last visit. I have been doing everything possible to avoid leaving loose ends, and to write thorough chart notes, so it will be easy for the next doctor. I have tried to make suggestions for which doctor or practitioner might best match the needs and personality of each patient. I passed my list to give to the Director of Adult Medicine, who has been working hard and well on this transition. It's not a complete list...

  I am left to wonder why the clinic took surprise action to remove me from patient-care, while still paying my salary for two weeks. I suspect there was free-floating anxiety about what I might say or do. I had been informing people of the actual circumstances of my leaving, being fired for non-compliance with mandatory vaccination. The management has been consulting with attorneys the whole time, and somebody else is contesting her firing for non-compliance with that mandate, I am told. Governor Abbott did say that vaccine mandates are not tolerable in Texas, Monday of last week. I suspect that my being fired-for-cause, other than non-compliance with COVID vaccination might be more plausible when the date of my firing is moved forward from the prior date of my termination for non-compliance

  I do not intend to contest my firing through recourse to the law. The only law I am really, currently concerned with is the Law of Karma, and I am very concerned with that law. I am constantly aware of the implications of Karma as we wade further into this rip-tide of history.

The Spirit Moves


  Yesterday at clinic, while I was finishing work at my desk, the Medical Director, a good guy, who I have known for 15 years, came by with an envelope.
I anticipated that the clinic would need to side with federal payments over a state order against vaccine mandates. That's the case. Some uncertainty has been inserted into the system by Governor Abbot's order. There is a bill in the legislature to bolster that. We will see how it fares.

  I was dismayed that the position of the clinic administration is that I am being fired for cause, other than refusing to accept mandatory experimental vaccination.
The last 7 weeks, since the clinic announced the mandate, and I made my position clear, that I must stand with the under-class of un-vaccinated, has had more discord. 
  I was told that I must stop prescribing ivermectin-based treatment for COVID, with any link to the clinic, after over a year of doing so, and to good effect.
I was written up for prescribing ivermectin based treatment to the 17 year old son of a coworker, without an office visit, or writing it up in documentation. 
That was true. I have prescribed for staff and some family members since spring 2020, and have maintained my open offer to do so.

  I have continued to advise patients who have recovered from COVID against receiving vaccination, on the grounds of all-risk-and-no-benefit. I have discussed the shifting risk profiles where the vaccinated become more prone to catch COVID than the unvaccinated (Public Health England data is especially clear.)
This comes as the clinic is ramping up vaccine events, and is vaccinating children whenever parents will consent.

  My approach to treatment of each patient, using my best judgment and giving my best medical advice, has become directly at odds with the policies of the clinic, lately a Federally Qualified Health Center. The clinic follows recommendations, policies, and incentives (for vaccinations), which come from the federal government.
It is appropriate that the clinic and I part ways, if we cannot share the same approach to patient care. 
It is apparent that we cannot.

  Of course I feel personally wronged in this, but there is not much to be done for this progression of the organization. 
I was once mainstream. I'm about the same as I was then. 
  It has been awhile, and the change has been gradual, and not brought to a crisis until now. I am not the only one departing soon. Yesterday three competent people told me they had handed in their resignations for November and December. I already knew of another. These are people who accomplish critical tasks. 
I know there are others who are now keeping their eyes out for jobs elsewhere. The first four are leaving with no new job, "taking some time off".

  This is my small world experience. There are a few in the hallway who glare and will not meet my eyes since I sent out the email last month likening the unvaccinated now to the Jews in WW-2 Germany. I sought to explain my sincere position of standing with the underclass, but it was not something that some people could consider.
  I was reprimanded, and twice disparaged in administrative emails for my communication. 
I was asked not to respond to those reprimands, and I had no intention to do so. I only wanted to explain my position once. 
I had explained.

  Today I have a few stories about how this is playing across America, as people of conscience say "No" and stand their ground.
I have no predictions how this will play out, or how long it will be in play, but the people who are firm in their convictions are an important sampling of society. 
These people are able to make decisions and take action upon them. That's not universal these days. That's actually a talent-pool.

​  ​The top Catholic official in the US military has declared that soldiers have the right to opt out of Covid vaccine mandates on the basis of “conscience,” after some branches were accused of trying to discourage such exemptions.
​  ​In a statement issued on Tuesday, Timothy Broglio – Archbishop for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese for Military Services in the US – argued that while the Vatican has determined that none of the Covid-19 vaccines in use are inherently wrong due to a tangential link to aborted fetal cells, soldiers still have the right to decline the vaccine if they believe it would “violate [their] conscience” for whatever reason.
​  “Notwithstanding the moral permissibility of these vaccines, the Church treasures her teaching on the sanctity of conscience,” Broglio wrote. “Accordingly, no one should be forced to receive a Covid-19 vaccine if it would violate the sanctity of his or her conscience.”

​Chicago Police Union Head Urges Members to Defy Vaccine Mandate, Warns Force to shrink 50% This Weekend
​  ​“Do not fill out the portal information,” Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said in a video to officers posted on YouTube.
“I’ve made my status very clear as far as the vaccine, but I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody—let alone that information about your medical history.”
​  ​According to Catanzara, the police union is preparing a lawsuit against the city if Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s administration attempts to enforce the mandate, which requires city workers to report their vaccine status by Friday or be placed on a “no-pay” status.
​  ​“It’s safe to say that the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50 percent or less for this weekend coming up,” Catanzara said

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered United Airlines not to place workers seeking an exemption to the company’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate on unpaid leave.

​Texas House bill 155 Would make individual choice of whether or not to accept vaccination the law, and would override any employer mandates.
Texas lawmakers consider ban on vaccine mandates for private employers
​  ​The House State Affairs Committee heard more than four hours of public testimony on House Bill 155 on Wednesday, which creates a de facto ban on COVID-19 vaccine mandates by allowing individuals to claim an exemption to a vaccination requirement based on numerous factors, including “reasons of conscience.”

Everything Solid Melts Into Air, Charles Hugh Smith​
​  ​We know we're close to the moment when Everything Solid Melts into Air when extraordinary breakdowns are treated as ordinary and the "news" quickly reverts to gossip. So over 4 million American workers up and quit every month, month after month after month, and the reaction is ho-hum, labor shortage, blah, blah, blah, toy shortage for Christmas, oh, the horror, blah, blah, blah.
These are large numbers. Over 10 million job openings and 6 million hires and 6 million "separations," i.e. layoffs and the 4.3 million voluntary quits.
​  ​The happy story promoted by the corporate media is that this enormous churn is the result of shiny, happy people moving up the work food chain to better paying jobs. We know we're close to the moment when Everything Solid Melts into Air when every breakdown is instantly reworked into a happy story in which everything is getting better every day, in every way.
​  ​The reality nobody in power wants to acknowledge, much less address, is that millions of workers are opting out or burning out and they're not coming back.

Artificial Tyranny Project

 ​Coerced Daily,​

  Monday night I was heartened to hear that Texas Governor, Greg Abbott had issued an executive order forbidding any entity within Texas from having a COVID-vaccine mandate. I did not see this as being against private businesses deciding things, but as being supporti​ve​ of individual humans having the right to make their own, medical decisions, with somewhat less coercion.
  This does go against existing federal policies to withhold payment from Nursing homes and medical facilities that do not enforce COVID-vaccine mandates. It seems that the federal government can choose to withhold such payments, which will kill those businesses if they don't comply.
  That category includes the public health clinic, for which I work until the end of the month. The board decided to declare a vaccine mandate around the time that the nursing home vaccine mandate was announced by the feds. The writing was on the wall, but the official position is that it was to protect people. It elicits less cognitive dissonance to tell oneself that one is acting virtuously, rather than being coerced. That comfortable position is now superficially challenged by Governor Abbott. His executive order is now a thing, not an expected-soon thing. It i​s​ ahead of the proposed OSHA recommendations in time.
  One of the fundamental assumptions in the OSHA draft is that mass vaccination is the best protection against COVID. What if it increasingly appears to be worse-than-nothing after about 6 months, and offsetting-penalties before that? People are clearly more susceptible to catching COVID in the 13 days immediately following vaccination, and the Public Health England data shows that the vaccinated are more prone to catching COVID (negative protection rate) after about 6 months, now in all ages above 30.
  I am heartened by Governor Abbott's order because it is an action against tyranny, an action in support of individual freedom and personal bodily autonomy, medical autonomy. It comes at a time when the primacy of vaccination-only policy is openly decaying, because everybody can see that they don't work very well. Not everybody does see that, but it's apparent to many people who are not even really scrutinizing things.
  Tyranny craves absolute control of each person, each action, and increasingly, of each thought and perception, which might lead to actions. Tyranny must control all circumstances, so that no actor can choose non-compliance. Using artificial intelligence to shape "consensus" on social media, through advancing posts that fit the narrative, retarding or deleting posts that do not support, or contest the narrative, and salting in some snide "bot" attacks to publicly demean any new post that challenges the narrative. 2-3 of those makes people afraid to comment in favor, but the negatives have to be there right away. That's do-able...
  Freedom of choice requires groceries, water, shelter, food, fuel and companions. Tyrant-types need to own all of that. They need to be able to keep the essentials of life away from dissidents. People need to remain completely focused upon compliance, in order to avoid insecurity. The specter of insecurity must be always present to remind people to not miss a payment, or a paycheck.
  I have long wondered how there might ever be a societal shift away from the micro-control which has come to be so pervasive in my world these days. We seem to be seeing it in the squeezing-too-hard-too-fast edicts coming from the tyrants and petit-tyrants as they experience insecurity themselves.
  What is happening, as a result of this fast and tight squeeze is a separation​-​out of people who are more independent of thought and action, who have also kept open some options for themselves, and who are at least suspicious of this power grab over their bodies. Many people who solve difficult problems in human society might be in this class. Many who already got COVID vaccines, especially early-adopters, can still have deep misgivings about what they now see happening, the totalitarianism of vaccination in places like Australia.
  Why? It does not make sense as presented. It seemed to make sense that way up through May or so...
  I think we can see the position of big pharma, wanting to control the narrative that pumps money to it.
  The answer to a vaccine that makes you catch COVID after 6 months is boosters every 3 months, each at full price. Just don't look at the 2 weeks after the shot. It's not fair to count that. Don't look at heart attacks after COVID vaccination. Don't. No! Don't look at all-cause-deaths. No!
  Another good thing about mandatory vaccination is that it allows for the removal, the shunning of the non-compliant from all of the things which support their lives, "the economy". This dovetails into electronic transactions through smartphones. Each transaction can be approved or denied. Accounts can be deleted. China is leading the way with this technology.
  From my personal point of view, I want to turn my brothers and sisters in a direction away from that. I have to start walking away from it myself, and I have been wandering, trying other little trails, like buying things with cash more. Credit-shopping online is so easy... Getting home improvements done in Yoakum works better with cash, except it is easy to leave a credit card with the hardware store...
  This is really a complex life-support system and it is owned by the control-freaks who control the rest of us through controlling our access to the necessities of life, and to our communications with each other. They control us while we comply. They threaten our existence, but they also feel their existence threatened. They grasp us so tightly that they squeeze some of us out between their fingers.
  Those most capable of doing something new, making parallel economic support structures, are being squeezed out of the current structure by the insecure, control-freak "owners", who are the "owners" as long as the rest of society sees them to be the owners, and the economy holds them in that rank.
  The first steps for those of us who would build an alternate economic support system are parallel steps. We can't just leave. Getting out of debt, riding bikes, growing vegetables, storing food, water and fuel, having reliable vehicles, and being helpful to other human friends, family and neighbors are things we should all be doing already.
  Each day brings me new questions. I meditate, then do my best to contribute to the good of all.  
  The insecurity of the current "owners" drives them to act against the interests of the humans who are members of the societies, upon which they rely for their own support. Let's help them out by gently relieving them of duty.  Nope, I'm not su​r​e how that works, but not by becoming like them...

​  ​Abbott's order states that "no entity in Texas" can compel proof of vaccination by any individual, including employees or customers. Failure to comply could result in a fine of $1,000, although Abbott did not say how the order would be enforced.
​  ​Biden's administration announced on Sept. 9 a plan that will require about 100 million American workers to get vaccinated or submit to weekly testing. Many of the plans have yet to be detailed and do not yet have the force of law.

​C.J. Hopkins details the threat of total control through AI technofascism.
The Great New Normal Purge
​  ​As we “paranoid conspiracy theorists” have been warning would happen for the past 18 months, people who refuse to convert to the new official ideology are now being segregated, stripped of their jobs, banned from attending schools, denied medical treatment, and otherwise persecuted.
​  ​Relentless official propaganda demonizing “the Unvaccinated” is being pumped out by the corporate and state media, government leaders, health officials, and shrieking fanatics on social media. “The Unvaccinated” are the new official “Untermenschen,” an underclass of subhuman “others” the New Normal masses are being conditioned to hate.
​  ​But it isn’t just a purge of “the Unvaccinated.” Anyone deviating from the official ideology is being systematically demonized and persecuted. In Germany, Australia, and other New Normal countries, protesting the New Normal is officially outlawed. The New Normal Gestapo is going around to people’s homes to interrogate them about their anti-New Normal Facebook posts. Corporations are openly censoring content that contradicts the official narrative. New Normal goon squads roam the streets, checking people’s “vaccination” papers.
​  ​And it’s not just governments and corporations carrying out the New Normal Purge. Friends are purging friends. Wives are purging husbands. Fathers are purging children. Children are purging parents. New Normals are purging old normal thoughts. Global “health authorities” are revising definitions to make them conform to New Normal “science.”

Australia Building Quarantine Camps for "Ongoing Operations"

“At this stage, the cabins will be used by domestic travellers returning from COVID hotspots,” states the report.

​The EU framework supports globalist interests. Globalist interests have to override national legal structures or they will fail in the "great reset"​. That is not going according to schedule, and is resisted in Poland, similarly to German national resistance, but more fundamentally threatening to the basis of EU "membership". Mish has the story.

From the NIH. Ivermectin was 74% effective risk-reduction in healthcare workers in June and July 2020, in a 28 day time period, as pre-exposure prophylaxis, with weekly dosing, and without an initial loading dose. (This regimen can be improved upon, and has been since then.)
