I was a normal guy, helpful to government and society in general.

Now, I view governments, big businesses, doctors, press as hostile forces, agents and lackeys of COMMIE BASTARDS.

And act as such.

I'm not helpful anymore.

i think A LOT of "normal" folks have had a similar experience.

i had just about zero interest in politics, society shaping, or these grand public fights for the zeitgeist before 2020.

i think many of the "builder" class were similar but based on about 1000 conversations i've had with friends and colleagues, the lions are awake now and their attention has shifted.

this is no longer a nuisance to be ignored.

it's an existential threat to be defused.

things are about to change.

You can always vote third party. No, your candidate isn't going to win, but at least he or she will show the others how to lose gracefully and you know that your vote isn't going to be involved in all the shenanigans surrounding the two major players. Besides if enough people vote third party it may send a message to the two majors.

One by one, they are coming around. My two agnostic business partners (for >35 years) now admit the possibility of 'evil.' There is simply no other way to explain this; it is the fruit of Satan, played out over the past centuries and now coming to a head. We cannot pretend that what is happening in the world is unintentional; it is clearly with malice aforethought and the participants, the 'leaders,' the WEF's YGLs: Satan's handmaids.

Gato is right: things are about to change. The pendulum is swinging back. As Revelation tells us, Satan wins the appearance of some victories along the way, but God wins in the end. Are we there yet or are there decades or centuries more to endure? Only God knows the answer.

Meanwhile we must fight against evil at every opportunity. Prayer is powerful; it takes power from Satan and gives it to God. Oppose evil wherever you find it. Stand for good. Speak out against evil. Witness your faith to those you encounter; Satan hates it!

Expand full comment

Even those of us who (like myself) call ourselves agnostic or atheist most likely acknowledge that good and evil exist. Where we part company with the theist is the origin of those. The Theist claims a supernatural realm, Heaven and Hell, with God and Satan respectively, waging spiritual warfare. Us secularists in contrast, note that concepts such as "good" and "evil" are entirely human abstractions. By that, we mean that absent human beings, concepts such as "good" and "evil" have no referent or existence in the material universe. If that be true, then no matter where you looked in the universe, you will not find the "thing in itself" called Good, Evil, Love, or, for that matter, the number 42. Those things do exist, but on in human consciousness.

Now don't get me wrong; those abstractions still potentially have value. Even my favorite thinker, Nietzsche, no Bible thumper himself, and skeptic of morality par excellence said (approximately) he'd would be a fool to deny that what we call "moral" is generally good for man, while "immoral" generally results in bad.

Even Jesus's teaching may hint at this. Consider his statement that God sends rain on both the good and the evil. The context was (I'm assuming, obviously) that God watered the fields of everyone regardless of their observance. Now consider the issue from a strictly worldly viewpoint: In any given area, the rains fall without taking into account the [lack of] faith of the farmer. A drought or a flood is a disaster of course, but the good and the evil will get the same treatment. God may play favorites, but Nature surely does not.

This ties in with a critical dichotomy in philosophy probably best illustrated in Plato's allegory of the cave. There are (at least) two realities. Plato's "apparent" reality is what I call the real world, which we perceive via our senses. Confusingly, Plato dubbed the mental world the "real," but I'd call it the abstract. Plato and his followers value his "real" above the "apparent." Platonic reality has given us numerous nice things -- mathematics, geometry, the sciences. All those require thought, logic and analysis. We're also blessed by rich imagination which gives us fiction, stories, the arts and so on. But a critical distinction exists between the "real" and the "apparent." The human imagination has few, if any limits. It can create elaborate systems of belief poorly grounded in reality, or even contradictory in their own right. The infinite variations on political or religious systems well illustrate this fact. In contrast, that mysterious outside "apparent" world's laws are set by powers not subject to our control. In many cases, man has been able to model that world to an extraordinary degree. We often call those "scientific theories." When successful, they provide descriptive and predictive value. Here's a crucial point: they are purely mental creations. Another brain might have produced a "theory" that was absurd, at least in the sense that it failed when modeling the "apparent" world.

Note that the "modeling" the brain does by no means has to be formal logical or scientific reasoning. Our brains have been described as an organ whose primary purpose is to provide a reasonable facsimile, a model of outside reality that our organism must apprehend by our senses and interact with. Otherwise life would be impossible.

Put into blunt terms, one of mankind's greatest failings is thinking he can just make up shit and then hope to impose it on the real world. The real world just doesn't work that way. I suspect that virtually all of mankind's greatest disasters can be attributed to some variant of this phenomenon.

It turns out that our interactions with the outside world are much more successful when we learn and obey its laws, rather than impose our own whims upon it.

Thanks for the comment. Two things I find particularly interesting in your post: the distinction between 'real' and 'apparent,' and 'imposing our shit on the real world.'

Nowhere is the distinction between real and apparent less distinct that in the field of quantum physics. There, the human mind creates models with no apparent connection to the physical world. Nonetheless, these models can predict things that nobody knew before. As Neils Bohr, one of the creators of quantum mechanics, said: "Prediction is difficult, especially about the future." Translation: It is hard enough to create a model that is consistent with things we already know. It is much harder to create a model that not only is consistent with things we know, but correctly predicts things we do not yet know. Just look at 'climate science,' for example. The models create the predictions the designers want them to, without regard for the apparent (physical) world. Yet predictions of Einstein's theory of general relativity are still being confirmed, over 100 years after he first published the theory.

As for imposing our views on others without regard to reality, there is no better example than modern government. Politicians regularly create 'laws' that ignore the laws of physics and the laws of economics. The results are, predictably, catastrophic. Some catastrophes are larger than others, but as Scotty said, "You cannot change the laws of physics, Captain."

The laws of physics and economics, as we know them, were elucidated by man observing the world around us. Sure as the sun rises in the morning, you can't set a price ceiling below the market-clearing price without causing a shortage. The law of supply and demand is inviolate; it is based on the sum of human action on a society-wide level. Politicians regularly ignore these realities, at their own peril. Sometimes they manage to hang on to power through the power of physical force -- truckers in Canada, for instance -- and sometimes they do not. The show is about to get interesting.

Prayer *IS* powerful!

But...

...for your consideration....

...prayer of supplication (please please please) is far inferior to prayer of gratitude (thank you thank you thank you).

The former requires the supplicant hold in mind to some degree that which is troubling and which they wish to change. Nothing wrong with desiring change for the better. Not at all what I’m trying (badly?) to express.

The flip side, gratitude, requires the pray-er to hold simultaneously in mind and heart an uplifting picture and feeling, which “eliminates” the picture and feeling of what one wishes to change.

See the difference?

The latter is more powerful. It’s akin to, Be the change you wish to see in the world.

We can’t push aside what’s in our face 24/7, but... in prayer, if you shift into thank you thank you thank you -for 10 seconds at a traffic light, better than no shift occurring- that energy (everything is energy: Einstein) will find resonance. Millions and billions of people shifting around the globe? For 10 seconds here and there? And longer on their knees (in gratitude) or in quiet time? THAT, that unison, will find resonance, will manifest, will collapse the wave more quickly than the dual (supplication with presence in mind of the trouble).

Quantum. My understanding. And anecdotal experience.

Again, for your consideration. I got no answers. Satan / evil does find them uplifting feelins repellent tho. It needs the fear to survive. Why else would “they” persist so relentlessly in stirring it?

More light! More heartfelt brotherhood-sisterhood! More gratitude for each other and what we are achieving, millimeter by millimeter! We’re getting there. Not without pain, have to acknowledge that and all else ugly. But might I encourage more frequent shift into thank you thank you thank you? (Also not sayin it’s easy, just a more effective tactic in the battle for the souls of humankind.)

2 cents.

None of the perps are communists, Marxists, socialists, populists, anarchists or any such thing.

They are all ardent capitalists operating within the logic of capitalism and have been doing so for decades.

Understand the historical trajectory of how we got here. The nascent bio-security state started as far back as the mythical AIDS crisis of the 1990's and has developed into what we see today. The many steps along the way included most of the same institutions (and individuals) that are involved in the Covid scam and none of these are communist/socialist etc. in their origins.

Another aspect that gets ignored in the "blaming" of CCP/communists is that the perps who are mainly responsible for these crimes are let off the hook when blame gets assigned to China e.g.. Those individuals, including Chinese financiers, have absolutely zero allegiance to any national identity.

While China is certainly a part of the global bio-security machinery circa 2020 it is not the primary mechanism. The primary power moving the world towards totalitarianism lies in international institutions that are decidedly controlled by Western actors.

"Covid19", the 4th Industrial Revolution and Great Reset are all massive frauds to create a series of monopolies, cartels and oligopolies that govern food, energy, healthcare and the most basic parts of our lives. The plan is for a new phase of global capitalism- enabled by national states and governments, international organisations and quangos (EU, UN, NATO, IMF, WTO, WHO, Gates, GAVI)- with no clear lines between state and non-state actors.

As an aside none of the actors involved are communists. Anyone who thinks George Gao, Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, Klaus Schwab, Mario Draghi, Macron, etc. are communists needs to rethink that position.

It is NOT capitalism. It is fascism--government-control of industry. We might call it capitalism, but it stopped being so 100 or 150 years ago with the creation of the first gov't-controlled oversight board. Calling it capitalism is like calling Joe Biden our leader.

Yes, it is fascism. But it is industry-control of government, not the other way around.

Not quite control, but began as capture and evolved to collaboration. The definition of fascism is public-private partnership — in truth, I think “government” is largely irrelevant. What we have is the administrative state (hired, not elected, to include particularly the intelligence/surveillance agencies) cooperating with corporations to advance agendas that advance their power and profit. The damage to the rest of us is immaterial.

Yet unfettered capitalism will lead to monopoly. Just how much choice does a consumer have then, other than the vacuous case of having the right to buy or not, a perhaps critical need (e.g. food, water?)

You will note that in many areas, government has declared legal monopolies or at least highly limited competition. I"m not referring to duties that traditionally are government's (e.g. the court system), but things like regulated public utilities. These usually private corporations but heavily controlled. And in return for that monopoly market, government usually takes away most freedom of association (what little remains) of that corporation. In practice, that means they must accept all customers who meet some minimum standard (e.g. pay their bill). Major point: what I've just described might be called a real-world compromise. It's not the pure capitalism that exists mostly in theory, nor is it pure communism/socialism. At least in more rational times, it was decided that a "private" company doesn't have the right to cut off electric, water or sewer because they don't like your political views, your race, your religion, etc.

And while I won't argue them right now, there are rational arguments to be made in certain cases for (or against) monopolies. And government force, too. Disagree?

Fascism or Corporatism probably are more accurate. Such definitions have much overlap; even experts will argue them. And I doubt anyone here is an expert! As the occasional critic may note, "pure" capitalism, communism, etc. has never really existed; perhaps they CAN'T exist in pure form.

If that observation is true, then it's unlikely that Fascism can exist as "pure" either. This is my attempt at clarification: Imagine the USA in the days of (nearly) unfettered capitalism. Surely there was "partnership" between Capital and government: campaign contributions, bribery, etc. Now imagine today's USA: there is far more government power and (in theory at least) control over business. Yet there is clearly a strong partnership between private money and government: again, those lavish campaign contributions, but also many flows of money, many of them legal even if of questionable ethics. In both systems there was some partnership. Perhaps in the modern time, we could say there is more regulation "in theory" but in fact Capital merely pays more "user fees" (bribes, if you prefer) to government for their "services."

One of several heroes in Rand's epic "Atlas Shrugged." Yes it's a good book and some interesting philosophy (Objectivism). But as a model for the real world, not so much. Now, I don't doubt that Rand's vision of how Socialism corrupts and eventually collapses a society is not far off the mark. But assuming the "evil" characters are all dupes and incompetents goes wrong. I must give her some credit, as our present system values "diversity" over competence and other positive traits. But to assume that the evil will always be flawed? I wish. Sadly in our real world, there are highly intelligent but evil people. Stupid people can only do limited damage, unless they somehow get into positions of power. Yeah, in everyday life they can be a nuisance because they fuck things up or cause other mischief. But an intelligent, capable person is more likely to be in that position, and he is capable of exponentially greater evil (or good) because of his innate ability.

Even in chaos, we must realize & accept the fact that we are responsible & accountable for our own self, actions, & choices, therefore, we are also the ones who have to accept & deal with any resulting consequences thereof. If you’re unhappy, figure out why and do whatever you can to fix it.

Problem-Reaction-Solution- a time honored strategy.

Without the fear-mongering propaganda campaign no one would’ve noticed anything unusual about the last two flu seasons because there was nothing unusual, except for the criminal, murderous, and utterly unscientific lockdown policies and "health protocols" in response to the non- existent threat.

"Covid-19" deaths follow the same age/risk stratification and seasonal curve of flu/pneumonia at the same time that flu inexplicably vanished from the face of the earth while all pneumonia deaths were suddenly called “Covid” using mass death certification fraud.

I cut my teeth on the massive amount of corruption and profiteering and Pharma con jobs back in 2004 with the Avian Flu hoax. They tried the same con, with mostly the same cast of characters, in 2009/10 with the Swine Flu hoax.

I spent a lot of time in both instances trying to alert people throughout the community to the realities of these frauds. Each time there was tremendous push back followed by acknowledgement that these were indeed scams. However it seems that there is a bizarre psychotic thirst for this hysteria in our present culture as after each fraud was proven it only needed a few years passing for these very same folks to become ready to accept a new fraud.

Once you have explored the details of these frauds it is easy to identify the scam as it is happening.

The playbook is pretty much the same, they simply refine the techniques. Not so easy to convince others of the scam as they are bombarded with fear porn 24/7.

I have to say that the "messaging" is far more comprehensive, insidious and sophisticated with Operation Covidius than all others before by quantum leaps.

That and they produced the cadavers this time through an array of medical democides (remdesivir, neglect, midazolam, ventilators, etc.) which solidified the fear mechanisms in the masses.

It's breathtaking really to witness the grip of fear this had and still has on millions and a vast number of these people will be damaged for life. The shadow of this psychosis will follow them to their graves. This is particularly true among the "educated" classes who now have a warped sense of purpose beyond the dull, aimless wanderings of Academia.

As for the Covid™ fable of 2020 itself, it was and is a nasty lie- all of it from top to bottom. All of the exaggerated and repeated fear-based messages from the media and government agencies this past year were just part of the advertising campaign for the pharmaceutical industry’s newest lucrative product- mRNA “vaccines” which they plan to roll out as new medical “miracle cures” for a variety of “ailments”, e.g. new line of “cancer vaccines.”

Every single one of the media bullhorns that were blasting the Covid fiction for the past year have direct financial ties to Pharma Inc. It’s not exactly accurate to say Pharma uses its power to influence the news- more to the point it is Pharma that writes the script. Pharma and it’s investors own “the news” and you will speak the Pharma gospel if you wish to maintain your position of privilege- it goes without saying.

And when we speak about Pharma this cannot be separated out from the investor class who rakes in oceans of taxpayer wealth through numerous Pandemic Ponzi Schemes with Pharma as it’s “offering” and its Trojan Horse.

"Covid-19" is a business plan not a medical emergency. Now more than ever it’s important to understand the economics of vaccines. Traditional systems of vaccine procurement and distribution are rapidly giving way to vast public–private supply chains. Despite annual revenues approaching US$1 trillion, the industry has been unable to reverse a declining rate of profit and finds itself in a perpetual state of crisis.

In Fall/Winter of 2019 all stocks of Big Pharma companies were in steep decline. This changed dramatically in Spring 2020 as we now know. The experimental gene therapy mRNA drugs are set to become the most lucrative drugs in medical history. Pharma depends on its “blockbuster drugs” to remain profitable and appealing to investors. It is not an exaggeration to say that without these “blockbuster drugs” the Pharma industry implodes.

What happened in 2020 was simply that the flu was re-branded and repurposed- the term "Covid-19" was invented to turn the seasonal virus into the equivalent of the mythical “Al-Qaeda” meaning to terrorize the population with the false construct of a boogeyman.

This was done as the Western economies were in total free fall in late 2019 and the plan to digitize the economies of The West had to be rushed through lest the collapse be seen for what it was- the by-product of decades of Ponzi schemes by the Wall St. parasites and their allies.

The Virus™ is superfluous, just like the Swine Flu scamdemic of 2009. All they needed to do was create the perception of a pandemic/mass panic with staged Hollywood productions, doomsday models, and the fraudulent PCR test to manufacture the cases/falsely attributed as “Covid deaths.”

In March 2020, I looked at my colleagues and said, "This is nothing, but a controlled demolition of our economy, and there are going to be a lot of people get filthy rich doing it." I think I was right.

Expand full comment

That is precisely what is happening. "Covid" is the cover story utilized to conceal the reality of how economies in the West are being crashed and who is doing it.

What we are in the midst of is a planned total economic collapse. This economic collapse was inevitable. Western governments are putting the security infrastructure into place, trying to proactively control the inevitable social disorder which will result from this collapse. To be followed by a global financial reset, after a period of hyperinflation, which destroys both the value of debt and the corresponding paper claims.

There is not now nor has there ever been an epidemiological or viral emergency event of any sort anywhere in the world in the year 2020. The manufactured perception that there was such an event is an artifact of mass media manipulation, behavioral conditioning techniques and social engineering. All of this has been made possible through institutional programming and accelerated media messaging disallowing basic cognitive processes and eliminating critical thinking possibilities.

The collapse started in 2008 and attempts to salvage this corrupt economic system only delayed the inevitable. In the Fall of 2019 the crisis began to rapidly unravel again.

There was a dramatic decrease in industrial production which showed up in the banking crisis of August of 2019- the so-called Repo crisis when suddenly banks started to refuse US sovereign debt instruments as collateral of overnight loans forcing the Federal Reserve to step in and basically print money to cover this massive shortage.

The Repo market is where banks borrow money each day so that they have 10% liquid assets at the end of each day. If they do not have 10% liquid assets they are not allowed to open the next day.

Around the middle of September the Fed started pumping $20 billion per day into the Repo market to keep interest rates down so banks could borrow the money to stay in business. By the end of December the Fed was pumping over $100 billion per day into the Repo market and it was not enough.

Simply everyone on Wall Street was loaded with enormous debt and was holding on to US cash to be able to service it refusing to finance purchases of foreign currencies and then US currency as Repo Market froze at 10% interest on overnight Repo loans as US treasury bonds and even US bills were rejected as collateral for Repos.

What happened in March 2020 was just the spread of the liquidity crisis from primary dealers markets (TBTF banks and Hedge funds were actually bailed out in September) toward all other stock, commodities, bonds CLOs, MBS etc, as well to Ponzi schemes called today ETF funds, not to mention structured derivative products traded on proprietary platforms nominally representing up to several thousands of $$$ trillions.

When US treasury bonds and even USTB became illiquid due to exponential growth of public (but most of all private) dollar debt while the FED was sucking up cash from financial markets by tempering QE (called QT) between 2017 and 2019 reduced FED balance sheet from over $5 T to $3.9T by selling assets, all hell broke loose. Something drastic had to be done.

And hence the FED started to “buy all worthless shit for double the price”, Gates’s and Silicon Valley gang took over the media, and Orwellian shrinks and doctor Fauci-Mengeles came to the “rescue” unleashing operation COVID.

COVID phenomenon cannot be understood without understanding the un-televised 2019-2020 unprecedented financial collapse threatening the entire global financial system. The COVID fraud timing became necessary as the world markets were faced with an emergency debt crisis that popped up in formerly mostly liquid markets: Repo markets, money markets and FX markets.

The entire House of Cards was falling for six months and could not be stopped so COVID hysteria was manufactured to cover up what amounts today to $11 trillion of FED bailout in cash, stock boost via POMO and guarantees of value of collateral used in structured derivatives. The end game is that the central banks (Fed) will buy all the toxic, worthless debt from the hedge funds and banks, including the 1.5 quad trillion of derivatives, and then transfer the debt to the treasury as sovereign debt. Then print money to infinity to service the fictitious debt to sink the dollar via hyperinflation and then foreclose on the US and everyone else holding debt in worthless dollars.

That’s the coup. There will be global hyperinflation to vaporize the assets of the masses and the States- as soon as the ruling class mops up the last properties.

What this means is the ruling class will have limitless claims on everything in the world. Simply put, the seasonal coronavirus was rebranded as "Covid 19" on the back of a redefinition of what a ‘pandemic’ was by the WHO at the bequest of its financiers. This unlocked access to financial incentive programs that were large enough to bail out every failing economy.

Covid 19 is the final heist to strip all value out of the world in an effort by the creditors to consolidate what they believe they’re owed.

I do think, which I've said before, where many of those involved in the current Covid critiques fall short is in their analysis of the history and the political economy of how we got here.

Interesting comment. Puts a lot of puzzle pieces into place. What was the purpose of the mRNA vaccines, in your opinion? I can only think of dark reasons for the mad rush to stick a needle in every arm.

Expand full comment

It's the pharmaceutical industry’s newest lucrative product- mRNA “vaccines” which they plan to roll out as the new medical “miracle cure” for a variety of “ailments”, e.g. new line of “cancer vaccines.”

The plan is for the mRNA "vaccines" to be Pharma's new cash cow and launch an entirely new Bio-Tech wave of financialized "disease management."

Expand full comment

Agree with Allen below. It's all about money. It's fairly easy to find the mechanisms they used, as well as the profit motives, to foist the mRNA jabs on the world. The recent attempt (successful?) to get the "vaccines" on the childhood schedule has no defensible medical justification, but it makes perfect sense if one understands that at least an "approved" product on that schedule will give the makers legal indemnity separate from the emergency use protections.

Finally, if "Future Framework" is approved (again, maybe it already is?) future mRNA "vaccines" basically get rubber-stamp approval.

The above are clear motives to manipulate the system to insure profit. I also forgot to mention that the bulk of sales are directly to government, so a guaranteed market.

Now, whether anyone will voluntarily take these products is another matter. Much of what I read lately suggests that public appetite is rapidly waning, including for related products like Paxlovid. I for one, have not taken any EUA product (I was offered Paxlovid). I will probably never voluntarily take a vaccine ever again, especially an mRNA product. I'm more open to an EUA, but would only do so if it were literally a life or death, severe pain or some other dire issue. But because I had a glorified cold and my primary thought me high risk and I didn't. Hell no.

Of course the more lurid fears of sterilization or killing off unwanted populations COULD be true, but I don't put much stock in them. Unbrideld greed and perhaps, desire to gain political power explains it quite well.

Expand full comment

Looking at the horrors of the last 2 years, especially the coercion to vaccinate and the deliberate vilification and dehumanization of those sensible enough to avoid the jab, I find profit motive an insufficient explanation for these outrages. That this phenomenon took place not just in our unimaginably-corrupt US of A, but throughout the world only deepens my suspicion.

Contracts with governments were signed and cash was deposited in Pharma's coffers, regardless of whether people rolled up their sleeves or not. Yet governments and large corporations insisted that everyone be injected with mRNA. There is something about the these shots that is key to whatever future these malevolent individuals have planned for us.

Allen's scenario of impending, controlled economic collapse makes the most sense to me. I am not sure if these shots will be used to control us via vax passes, or to use us as experiments for potential life-prolonging treatments (for them, not us), or to sicken/cull the herd in order to even the odds for the Oligarchy when the hoi polloi finally rises up against them. But I am 100% certain that this has absolutely nothing to do with sparing people from the ravages of a "deadly" virus.

Thank you for your analysis and suggestion that the Plandemic was actually a diversion in order to carry out the massive bail out of bankrupt financial institutions and disguise it as "saving the economy." I do disagree, however, with the idea that Covid is actually just the flu. I'm a retired MD and have treated quite a number of people who became ill with this virus. Surprisingly, PCR and the other tests used turned out to be pretty accurate, which surprised me. But most importantly, as you know influenza does not cause loss of taste or smell, chronic fatigue, or brain fog, nor the vascular problems that have been associated with this particular virus. I do think Covid was unleashed in order to allow for the financial response you referred to. It just wasn't influenza.

Expand full comment

That is probably a good thing that you are retired. But you are not alone. There are so many doctors that we can't trust anymore. If you was my doctor, I would tell you that you are a quack. The flu just disappeared? PCR test accurate? You are a charlatan, just like my doctor.

When I asked him for early treatment, he answered there is nothing! So suddenly a doctor can not treat a viral infection or a pulmonary disease, not even a fever. Doctors have turned in the most useless people. Not all, but most of them, like you! Here is a refresher from CDC:

Flu signs and symptoms usually come on suddenly. People who are sick with flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:

Fever* or feeling feverish/chills

Cough

Sore throat

Runny or stuffy nose

Muscle or body aches

Headaches

Fatigue (tiredness)

Fantastic comment and, from my perspective, entirely accurate.

I recall a dissenting doctor early on calling it a pandemic of testing. Also early on, pointing out that the COVID death rates were no different from an average ‘flu season brought horrified looks and “granny killer” accusations. Eventually I gave up.

Now that the FDA has agreed that new “vaccines” using the mRNA platform do not need safety or efficacy testing (not that any of the current vax products have been properly studied for either), the success of their business model is virtually guaranteed. Unless enough of us have recognized the grift and the danger. I’m hopeful that we have reached a tipping point of vaccine skepticism that will end the grift and the profitability of pharmaceutical products in general, and the vaccines in particular.

Expand full comment

Yes, I just noted as much above. If "Future Framework" gets approved (done deal, most likely) it basically means, as I understand it, "We don't need to to test it because it is functionally identical to already-approved Product X." In some contexts that is certainly plausible. But as Jo notes, the problem is that the FIRST product was developed at "warp speed" which means there is zero, or close to it, long term (or even short term!!!) testing or proof of safety. Indeed, the mRNA vaccines to date are not proving even very effective in terms of duration of activity. Leaving the pneumonia and flu vaccines aside as a special case (they are "supposed" to be changed every year, and by the way, they don't work very well), never in my life do I recall any prior vaccines that needed to be "topped off" every six months. In the olden times, many vaccines DID need boosters, but the interval was in years, not months!

So it looks like the powers that be want us to accept the new version, and hopefully to forget that the original version wasn't really very well tested for anything. I wouldn't let them inject this stuff into my dog (if I had one.)

I think you saw governments, pharma etc taking advantage of a crisis ( maybe even having a hand in creating it). COVID 19 is real and I witnessed it killing many- first hand. My hospital had every floor but one filled with 50-60 year olds on up suffering horribly, unable to breathe, and with no visitors allowed during the Delta wave. It was the most heartbreaking thing I have ever witnessed. So many died alone and suffered for weeks and weeks before succumbing. This horrible crisis was used for power, greed and gain. Were there some people with broken legs who just happened to have COVID? Well thats more common now than it was in the early waves of the virus. I doubt it is the majority, however. Was there some bending of the primary diagnosis because it was/is somehow incentivized? I believe so. But not the majority from where I sit.

Expand full comment

Yes, the "hospitals are overwhelmed" was largely a media fear porn fabrication. I'm not denying it didn't happen some places. North Italy got slammed early in 2020 for instance. But for the most part, the reports of lines waiting for the ER (at least in the USA) were mostly if not completely fabricated. If you have a good memory, or can read news archives, or a book like Berenson's, you may recall many cities had hospital tents erected, and a few military hospital ships were deployed to New York, against a possible surge in cases. For the most part, these were totally unneeded and withdrawn after a period.

It's also worth noting that from the beginning, virtually all patients who developed severe Covid-19 related ailments were those already at high risk, due to one (often several) factors such as age, diabetes, heart disease, immune disorder, obesity, etc. Also, once the CARES and other acts opened the money tap, hospitals had an incentive to call anything that walked or was wheeled in the door as "Covid-19," even if the only evidence was a dubious test and the patient presented with no symptoms of Covid-19.

Although Ryan doesn't state the cause, it's surely the case that beds have been reduced in recent years due to consolidation and cost-control in the hospital industry. Many rural hospitals have closed altogether.

Don’t forget — the hospital protocols of venting and remdesivir (“run-death-is-near” according to nurses — I believe the literal meaning breaks out to “sleep-death-is-near”) were designed to kill, and incentivized by insurers including Medicare/Medicaid. Why anyone would use an antiviral of any sort, let alone one that induces renal failure, once the virus had cleared and the patient was suffering from a bacterial pneumonia is something that should be investigated.

they also changed the definition of "vaccine" post facto because the covid jabs failed to meet the existing one.

these are people that think and are ruled by narrative. they reside in fables.

and when the facts violate the story arc, you get rid of the facts. the NOAA/GISS/IPCC are far worse.

the people doing it may not even know they are doing it. it's the insidious effect of cognitive dissonance. if you hold a view strongly enough, you outright disappear data that contradicts it rather than threaten your worldview and the identity you've build around it. this is why being an activist so often leads to zealotry.

the more wrong you become, the more right you must tell yourself you are to avoid having to change your mind.

so you end up constructing and inhabiting a hallucination into which dissonant data is not allowed.

A tiny glimmer of hope — the definition of “vaccine” was established through legislation (sorry, can’t remember the date or details), but what is codified into law cannot be undone by the CDC or anyone else without passing legislation to repeal the existing law.

Apparently they can get away with anything; look at what happened in Jan/Feb this year. At Sen. Johnson's hearing, among others he had Renk's whistleblowers about the rise of illnesses in the DoD (Military) health care system. They relied on DMED, a database that was used for outsiders to research. Within days of the report, the database was taken offline for rectification. Here's a "fact checker" report on that:

https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-militarydatabase-error/fact-check-dod-says-data-error-caused-spike-in-numbers-of-medical-diagnoses-in-their-medical-database-for-2021-idUSL1N2UY1S2

You see, the explanation is very simple: hundreds or thousands of diagnoses were entered wrong in 2016-2020, but 2021's data is correct. Then those evil conspiracy theorists seized upon this grievous error and jumped to wrong conclusions.

Now perhaps I'm jumping to conclusions. I can't say with certainty that a cover-up and massive fraud has occurred. But if that were actually the case, I believe what we've just seen would be indistinguishable. If this was a cover-up, almost certainly it is with the knowledge and direction of government up to the top levels. This is, at minimum, massive fraud and either hiding or fabrication treatment data for thousands of service members. And the fact that they apparently are getting away unchallenged should scare the shit out of us.
