Lagging Perceptions

 Consciously Aware,

  We are seeing the mainstream media reposition to get ahead of the wave of public perception, as COVID-19 "vaccine" products are increasingly known to be killing and disabling people of all ages, including children and babies. Media need to re-establish credibility, and they will need to move their messaging closer to the truth until they are seen as useful sources of information by most people. This is happening now, ramping up. It is certain that social media is monitoring the response of the American public.
WSJ Shreds Vaccine Makers, Biden Admin Over "Deceptive" Booster Campaign

​  ​GMC Blinks First: Regulator Declines to Investigate Dr Aseem Malhotra Over Vaccine Warnings in BBC Interview

​  The continent of Africa is providing an awkward "control group" of mainly "unvaccinated" humans, who had low rates of illness and fatality, and appear to be over COVID, while heavily "vaccinated" populations have wave after wave of sickness and deaths.​ (The areas that used ivermectin did particularly well.)
Africa Is Starkly Unvaccinated, And Starkly Unvanquished By COVID

​  A "limited hangout" will be necessary to "clean up" the intelligence agencies, mainly the CIA and FBI, which are most visible.​ A "new Church Committee" is being set up in the (barely) Republican-controlled House of Representatives, which should perform this function in restoration-of-faith.
How the CDC Became the Speech Police
Secret internal Facebook emails reveal the feds' campaign to pressure social media companies into banning COVID "misinformation."

​  Elon Musk's father is quite worried that his son is making the kinds of enemies who get rid of problem-people, and he is doing that, but it looks to me like this is the new-replacement-policy, so he will be protected as he does so.​

  Paul Craig Roberts, a Reagan Administration cold-warrior, who remembers the previous incarnation of the United States, the one President Eisenhower saw slipping away already, discusses how the CIA gets rid of presidents. (It appears to me that "Joe Biden" is positioned to take-the-fall for COVID and Ukraine, maybe even "losing to China", but this does not make him "troublesome", just a convenient scapegoat. The depths of his corruption will be left unexamined.)
​  ​How Troublesome Presidents Are Disposed of
​  ​President John F. Kennedy was murdered by the CIA and US Joint Chiefs of Staff once he realized that the government he headed was not the real government.  His predecessor President Eisenhower, a 5-star general, warned about the threat to democratic government posed by the military/industrial complex.  President Kennedy intended to do something about it while the president still had some power, but he was struck down before he could do more than fire CIA Director Allen Dulles and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Lyman Lemnitzer.  President Kennedy wasn’t able to get rid of General Lemnitzer, who transitioned to Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. Both Dulles and Lemnitzer are suspected of directing the plot against Kennedy’s life.
​  ​President Nixon was the best informed and best respected abroad president of any in US history.  He kept in touch with foreign leaders and was well informed about historical and current events.  But he also, like Kennedy and Trump, over estimated the power of the president.

​  Moon of Alabama points out that Ukraine sending reinforcements to bolster (temporarily) the main Ukrainian defensive line in Bakhmut, has removed their soldiers from other positions along the long front with Russia. Russian forces are now testing Ukrainian defenses in the south, and are likely to also do this in the north soon, while still incessantly shelling the suffering Ukrainian draftees in Bakhmut. (Tanks won't change this. A whole new NATO air-force would massively escalate the war.)
​  ​It is unlikely that any reserves he currently has are equipped, trained and battle ready. They will be too small to stop a fully mechanized Russian attack through the rather sparsely settled southwest of Donetzk province.
​  ​The aim of the Russian thrust in the south will not be to take cities like Zaporiziha. The aim is to bring the main transport routes, railways and roads, from west-Ukraine to the front in east Ukraine under Russian artillery fire. This will prevent not only the re-supply for the Ukrainian troops on the eastern front but also their exit from the front line. A 100 kilometer (60 miles) thrust to the north would mostly do that. A complementary thrust from the north towards south, which may or may not be coming, would finally close the cauldron.

​  ​Russo-Ukrainian War: The World Blood Pump​, Big Serge  ​(Gradually, and then Suddenly​)  
​  ​It has gradually become apparent that Russia is committed to a positional attritional war, as this maximizes the asymmetry of their advantage in ranged fires. There is an ongoing degradation of Ukraine’s warmaking ability which is allowing Russia to patiently maintain the current tempo, while it organizes its newly mobilized forces for offensive action in the coming year, setting the stage for cascading and unsustainable Ukrainian losses.​..
  [About changes in power structure in general.]
​..​Trotsky famously turned up at the foreign affairs ministry building one morning and simply announced that he was the new Foreign Minister. The employees laughed at him - who was he? how did he presume to be in charge? - but for Trotsky the point was to insinuate himself on a Schelling point. In the state of anarchy that began to spread in Russia, people naturally look for some obvious focal point of authority, and the Bolsheviks had cleverly positioned themselves as such by claiming control over the bureaucratic offices and titles. On the other side of the civil conflict, political opposition to the Bolsheviks clustered around Tsarist army officers, because they too were Schelling points, in that they already had titles and position within an existing hierarchy.
​  ​All of this is to say that in the event of a coup or state collapse, new governments are virtually never formed sui generis - they always arise from preexisting institutions and hierarchies. Why, when the Soviet Union fell, did political authority devolve to the Republics? Because these Republics were Schelling points - branches that one can grab for safety in a chaotic river.

​  This is a desperate and unsustainable ploy, whether it is a fake (probably) or extreme hubris (apparently), or both.

Global South: Gold-backed currencies to replace the US dollar
​  ​First: One of the key take aways from the World Economic Forum annual shindig in Davos, Switzerland is when Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan, on a panel on “Saudi Arabia’s Transformation,” made it clear that Riyadh “will consider trading in currencies other than the US dollar.”
​  ​So is the petroyuan finally at hand? Possibly, but Al-Jadaan wisely opted for careful hedging: “We enjoy a very strategic relationship with China and we enjoy that same strategic relationship with other nations including the US and we want to develop that with Europe and other countries.”
​  ​Second: The Central Banks of Iran and Russia are studying the adoption of a “stable coin” for foreign trade settlements, replacing the US dollar, the ruble and the rial. The crypto crowd is already up in arms, mulling the pros and cons of a gold-backed central bank digital currency (CBDC) for trade that will be in fact impervious to the weaponized US dollar...
​..Third: South Africa holds this year’s rotating BRICS presidency. And this year will mark the start of BRICS+ expansion, with candidates ranging from Algeria, Iran and Argentina to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
​  ​South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor has just confirmed that the BRICS do want to find a way to bypass the US dollar and thus create “a fairer payment system not skewed toward wealthier countries.”
​  ​For years now, Yaroslav Lissovolik, head of the analytical department of Russian Sberbank’s corporate and investment business has been a proponent of closer BRICS integration and the adoption of a BRICS reserve currency

​  ​Who is Behind the Great Food Reset?

​  ​Venezuela’s Seed Law Should be a Global Model
​  ​For peasant farmers, the battle over seed rights is critical to their livelihoods
​  ​The imposition of patented transgenic seeds onto rural communities has had a catastrophic impact on human livelihoods and biodiversity protection. In many countries, seeds have traditionally been the collective property of farmers—however, these farmers’ right to control their own seed supply is being attacked by corporate forces which have captured capitalist states around the world.
​  ​In 2010, the government of Colombia adopted Law 970 as part of a free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States government. Under the terms of the FTA, Bogot√° gave legal monopoly to seeds produced by US and European corporations and forced Colombian farmers to only use certified seeds manufactured by these companies. Farmers who were caught saving seeds or planting unregistered seeds were subject to fines or jail time. These laws were a condition for Washington to agree to the FTA.
​  ​Law 970 not only precipitated a rise in food production prices, since farmers were forced to purchase seeds from companies like Monsanto rather than use communally shared seeds; it also caused the Colombian state to destroy food products grown from saved seeds. This occurred in 2011 in towns like Campo Alegre, where Colombian authorities raided the warehouse and trucks of rice farmers and destroyed 70 tonnes of rice that was not produced in accordance with Law 970.

​  Lies, murder, robbery and destruction in the name of virtue.​
