pack up the tents and wipe the grease paint off the clowns, it’s time to get the hell out of here…
it sure seems like there is an awful lot of backing off and backing down going on all of a sudden.
and an awful lot of jerseys are getting swapped so folks can pretend they were on “team reasonable” all along.
either the states and congresscritters are in outright revolt or the polling must be even more apocalyptic than it looks.
watch phony baloney tony having to back off on the pediatric patient inflation grift.
right after backing off severity as well.
even the uber karen covidian crisis cabal at WASHPO, who never met a florida scare story they didn’t like, are getting on the “these numbers don’t mean what people think!” bandwagon.
this narrative is shifting faster than a dual clutch ferrari.
i mean, i am old enough to remember the long gone days of “a few weeks ago” when an idea like this would get you a twitter warning about misinformation.
whatever this new disease is, it looks to be spreading. BOJO seems to have caught some too.
let’s up the contagion.
I hate to be a black-pill Debbie Downer, but those of us who live in NYC are just not seeing any backing off. Now, I can't even have an unvaxxed health aide take care of my husband, paying for her on my own dime, without risking a $1000 fine. This would be true for baby sitters, plumbers, repairmen, you name it. Now, if I lived in a private home, I could just say fuck it and assume the police weren't going to break down my door to check to make sure I had the required sign up in my house (at least, not yet). However, I live in a cooperative, a building full of covidian cultists, and you can be sure no one will get up to my apartment without showing her papers to the front desk. I'm as close to 100% decided to move to FL or some other reasonably sane place asap as I can be, even though I don't even know where to begin. NYC is simply unlivable.
They're letting up on The Narrative, but I'm doubling down on the suspicion. Nothing those vipers say or do can possibly be for the greater good.
All i want is to never see the faces of Fauci or Justin Trudeau ever again.
You are an oasis in the desert, dear gato! To all of the magnificent people in this stack - and, of course to our esteemed feline - I wish you a joyous and blessed new year! May this madness end, soon. You have all been lights in my darkness these past weeks. I wish I had found you so much earlier. Love to you all.
I'd say two things are the absolute--uh--death knell for them--each contributing to attaining thermonuclear blast: Unrelenting school disruptions and the banning of end-of-life visits and culturally-essential funerals.
I was at least fortunate that my mother's awful suffering and death were pre-Plague. I'll say this for my tribe--though I've left all the dogma behind, we do death extremely well. The communal rituals and visits to the bereaved provide a structure when you yourself are dazed with grief. To be denied those means grieving has no measured, appropriate outflow.
And every community has its own essential such rituals. We've a huge population now of people who watched in anguished rage while protests and politically-leveraged deaths were "essential" and their own pain was swept into the rubbish heap.
And if you've got kids so young they've never had a normal school experience--just at their most developmentally-urgent stage? Elite Noo Yawkuhs and San Franciscans may continue to offer their children up to Moloch but I think most normal parents are sharpening the pikes and weighting the maces.
I agree these are definite positives. But they show no sign of letting up on vaccine mandates and that's the most insidious of all the battles
But college booster mandates still in place!!! Why???? These kids don’t need it and are all getting Omicron now. It’s absurd!!!
So tonight, I'm gonna party like it's 2019!
Saskatchewan will now differentiate between with and from covid for hospitalizations. Should happen in other parts of Canada soon too. This is another "conspiracy theory" we were right on and ridiculed about for 2 years now that will be adopted into the mainstream. It'd be wonderful to see the shift except theyre only doing it to cover for the vaccine and they will shift right back if the unvaccinated ever have higher case counts. Insanity.
I think congratulations are in order.
The Create Pandemic for Totalitarian Precedent™ proof of concept has been wildly more successful than could have been expected.
Not only was the herd spooked, but large segments of it were made utterly hysterical, creating a general supine willingness to comply with even the most patently preposterous requirements.
A few important lessons learned:
1. The vast herd of tax cattle wearing the blue ear tags will abuse and sacrifice their children, via masks, lack of education, isolation and genetic experiments if told to do so.
This bodes incredibly well for future depopulation and control efforts, either in future "pandemics", "existential climate crises" or other opportunities that may arise.
2. Nearly all blue and many red tax cattle will allow the destruction of the livelihood of tens of millions of their fellow citizens through lockdowns, allowing the greatest upward transfer of wealth in history.
This will allow for the takeover of the means of production and shift most wealth in desired directions, allowing for even more complete control over economic activity and thus maximum extraction. It is worth noting that this has been a goal for nearly two centuries. Well done!
3. Large numbers of boobus Americanus (and Britannicus, Canadadis, Australis) will readily dehumanize anyone who resists, and are willing to ostracize, segregate, imprison or even murder
Divide et Impera, baby!
It is beyond gratifying to see the fruition of decades of work and careful preparation.
Keep up the good work, we are nearly there!
They have to shift the narrative. It's about to be 2022--mid-term election time, and every poll is telling them people hate Joe Biden with the heat of a 1000 suns, and especially his response to COVID. Gotta get it in the rear-view mirror long before early voting starts...
May 1 2020 - as I stamped about my office ranting and raving that they are F-ing up all the data in response to an announcement by the state DOH that ANY positive test in the hospital would = C19 hosp (increasing C19 hosps >30% overnight), little did I suspect it would be Dec 31 2021 before most of the rest of the world would start to give a shit. These bastards will not get away with this. They cannot, or the next "disaster" will be an uglier repeat. Massive internet crash due to "evil global hackers", anyone?
"whatever this new disease is, it looks to be spreading" The shift is political and temporary, so people had better not let their guard down about the crazies at the top of the power heaps. All the Dems have to do to win in 2022 is declare the pandemic to be over, lift all restrictions so people can "legally" do what they're inclined to do anyway, and claim it as a WH success. If the wokesters retain the monopoly, once the election is over they have free reign to bring the iron fist back down.
Yes, but Boston, Chicago, and Cook County are extending vaccine mandates in order to access various businesses. Brandon declared that this madness should be implemented locally and the Democratic Orcs (have you seen a picture of Chicago's mayor?) muttered, "Yes, master" and gone about this nasty business.
"this narrative is shifting faster than a dual clutch ferrari."- oh how do I love thee, let me count the ways!! :-)
This "revelation" that everyone admitted to the hospital for any reason that happen to test positive for Covid was admitted by Dr. Birx, on national TV, in Feb. (?) of 2020. It has been known all along. That's why people are said to die "with covid" as opposed to "of covid." Think of a normal year... do we have TV tickers of people dying "with flu" or "with a cold"? Do we have hospitalization numbers of people in the hospital, for any ailment, recorded as "cold hospitalization" if they have a cold? This scam has been going on in front of everyone's eyes for 20 months! Why is it news now?
Our local karen just warned me not to go into any crowds and stay home. I went to Walmart at 4 yesterday LOL
Narrative shift means nothing. These are the architects and cheerleaders of totalitarianism. They deserve nothing but to get it in the neck and then to burn.
As a card-carrying control group member, it's hard to countenance the level and scope of narrative revision that is going on all over the place. All these people jumping from the Titanic into the tiny rowboat of common sense is cramping my leg room. Damn their mental weakness! Seriously, it's like being in a spirirtual battle against the temptation of resentment for all of these Covid-Karens who are finally starting to realize that their ship has struck the iceberg and is taking on water. It's one thing to [be forgiving and] help them from drowning; it's another to allow oneself to be pulled under as these covidiots re-write their histories to save their reputations. Beware their willingness to cannibalize.
- 2022 midterms
- too many cases and hospitalizations in high vaccinated areas, which will get higher in Jan, so they need to shift to vax as only preventing death
- lots of players on sports teams out due to Covid protocols, despite extreme low risk group and high vax rates
- this is but one virus, there will always be another, no need to beat a dead horse
Anyone wanna bet the high hospitalizations are vaccine injuries?
Good news from South Africa that they have lifted curfew entirely!
Also , this....
(I'm rather hoping that batman will appear...)
Moving backward here in a very blue Wisconsin county with a vaccination rate hovering around 70-75%. We have the only Mask mandate in the entire state and it keeps being extended (now until February) and my kids school district just sent out email last night that they are going back to all-virtual after new years. Because Omicron.
The most disappointing thing about all of this is the astonishing lack of curiosity of people in general. When covid first hit I took my first dive into immunology to get a better understanding and then, when the "vaccines" (ie. transfections) were released I went even further, learning as much as I could before making a decision on what to do regarding my health.
Now, when I listen to most people talk about covid (not here) I'm beyond amazed at the lack of ANY understanding (or even a cursory reading) of ANYTHING actually scientific in regards to all this. No wonder it's all such a f'in shambles.
They are serial liars. Do not make the mistake of believing a liar just because they say something you agree with.
yay good news ...can the colleges please get rid of the booster requirement for next term now?!?!
This is great news but I'm very suspicious. Tyrants don't give up so easily. In Canada, we are lagging in the good news department, vaxx mandates everywhere, vaxx passports required, school starts for 2022 delayed.
I am skeptical of this backing down. I know how the touchless torture agenda goes, though: Squeeze and release. So they let us think they're backing off, just before doing something even more tyrannical. IOW, I don't trust any of these assholes. And even if they stopped the charade/hoax tomorrow, they would never admit they did anything wrong. They never will. They will, in fact, blame us, who didn't fall for it.
Here's a topic about which I'd love to see more analysis: with most Americans vaxxed (allegedly), why are there still more unvaxxed people among new hospital admissions? This is one of the last lynchpins of the issue, and I suspect it's total bullshit.
I have two hypotheses, and would love to know what evidence can be found for them.
1) Illegal immigrants and people on Medicaid using the ER for primary care. This would correlate with lowest-vaxxed demographics, and would be likely to include a lot of kids with respiratory infections.
2) "Too frail to vax" - what % of unvaxxed hospital admissions were already in hospice care? This is the group most likely to be sick, die, and some percentage will be unvaxxed because they were deemed too frail.
I can't help think the data is much less rosy for the vaxxed than we're being told by being polluted with issues like these. Why can't we get an analysis of mortality benefit adjusted for age, health condition, insurance status, etc?
Here is the problem, folks. I know this from speaking with/questioning several people moving from places like SF, NYC, Chicago, etc. to places like Florida, Texas, Nashville, etc.
They DO NOT CONNECT THE DOTS when it comes to their voting habits. They will continue to vote D (cuz all the cool kids do plus R's are MEANIES) and eventually ruin the places they are moving to.
They, like all Lefties, know NOTHING about politics, lax law enforcement, bad schools, homelessness, paying folks not to work, etc. In fact, many of them wear their ignorance as a badge of honor, like "Oh, I am not political, I am above that", not realizing that voting for D's is the CAUSE of the shit holes they are fleeing.
For most Lefties, politics is about sitting at the cool kids table in the cafeteria, not about knowing or LEARNING about what policies actually work. Remember, Leftism, is about INTENTIONS not about RESULTS. Being on the Left, means never having to say your sorry and also it means you do not have the learning gene.
So, we can't but we should keep them in their blue enclaves.
el gato malo, I hope you have a great New Year celebration. I thank you for all the insights I've had reading these pages. I also thank the members of this stack for sharing their thinking. I HAVE GAINED MUCH! THANK YOU ALL!
Well yeah, this is a bit of progress, but I’m still waiting for a REAL end to the mandates. For example, my RN daughter being forced to submit to weekly PCR tests or get fired. Stuff like that.
“shifting faster than a duel clutch Ferrari”- cat man and car guy! impressive!
Thank you, you bad bad kitty for your awesome blog!
Best wishes for safe, sane, peaceful 2022!
Not seeing any backing off in NY after our new "same as the old boss" mayor and batshit crazy governor just unleashed even stricter mandates.
The Congressional midterm election campaigns will be ramping up soon and there are other elections like California's gubernatorial election next fall. It's obvious that the coronavirus narrative has taken a hard 180 degree swing because politicians want to be re-elected. Gov. Newsom allowed schools to force students out of school for a year and half - now it's crickets on school re-closures (thank god).
Democratic candidates won't get votes if they try the same Covid-19 mandates and restrictions after 2+ years. People are catching on that it was all B.S. and are tired of it. Any political candidate that promises freedom from all the Covid-19 rules has a better chance of winning an election and left-leaning media outlets are in line with this.
How many other "big guys" had their portraits painted in a satiny blue dress?? The $$$powers that be don't want that to be today's headline -- keep everyone looking at the spikes til we "forget"????
And this just came through the NYT: Breaking News Alert: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/31/health/covid-omicron-lung-cells.html
The NYT had just called Covid the cold. It seems like it has to be over.
In Alcoholics Anonymous one of their many words of wisdom, for those new in sobriety, reflects the truism that the chaos wrought by years of excessive drinking only goes away slowly: "The monkey is off my back, but the circus is still in town." My friend told me this. 😎
That reminds me: For those of your who imbibe, tomorrow morning, when your head feels like a sledgehammer is pounding a large bronze bell and you think you can hear snails crawling, and the morning light is like icicle daggers into your brain, I wish you a happy start to the new year! 🥴
The number of incidental cases is being pushed in the UK too, predominately by the Daily Mail, who have very close contacts with Downing Street and they spin a lot of narrative on all topics through them, so I’m pretty sure this is what “they” want to start talking about.
There was an article in my local paper today, which is in no way to be regarded as anything approaching journalism, that 30% of patients at the local hospital are there for other things and not being treated for covid and they referred to ‘the number of beds being occupied by patients with covid’, ‘beds being used by people with covid’, ‘beds occupied by covid patients’, and ‘beds occupied by those with the virus’. None of which make any sense, but it’s a change in tone. They’ve always given the impression that everyone who gets covid is at deaths door until now. Just strikes me as odd
Any chance Omicron could create OAS troubles in the unvaccinated nonimmune??
The Fauci video is gone from Twitter LOL
As long as we use worthless PCR testing, hospitals are not required to prove it is COVID, and they get bonuses payments for diagnosing it COVID…….I think you are going to see Chicken Little screaming the Sky Is Falling for awhile.
Not so fast - we are on a tight schedule: https://live2fightanotherday.substack.com/p/endgame-take-4-iont-in-jabs-turns
Makes me chuckle a bit but also hopeful that these nattering nabobs of negativity are seeing the light. The data eventually sinks in. The video link to Fauci admitting hospitalized cases with CV19 and not due to CV19 was taken down. Here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aktzp4jSXY8
If the policy pushers don't back off perhaps its time to stand up: write letters, flood the NY Times editorial and letters email in boxes. Write to representatives. Tweet tag MSNBC etc. These people hear from the fearful now its time to use data to push back on that by teaching them about the lesser severity of omicron and the lesser effectiveness of the vaccines (and most monoclonal antibodies) against it.
I'm glad these idiots are saying these things, but Jeezus Christ on a Cracker, this has ALWAYS been the case, as everyone here knows.
When I searched for the video my top hit was an article in Newsweek with the same title as the Tweet, the article briefly outlined the same as what the Tweet said but the video in the article just “debunked” the Beaglegate story.
I bet MSM realize the error they made by announcing it, Fauci & co will probably just change the definition of a Covid infection and magically the jabs will appear to work again.
Jestre has a couple of post that are relevant:
* Canada is covering up their incompetence by censoring the data: https://jestre.substack.com/p/canadian-blackout
* Omicron is not mild in South Korea: https://jestre.substack.com/p/mild-stealth-version-of-omicron-leads
$$52 billion projected for top 2 vax makers next year -- have to exceed investors expectations.
Now that the children have gotten their way to begin killing more children than saving from COVID. They need to begin the process of stop counting all the cases so they can say their #killshot is stopping the spread and saving lives. This is ‘Science’ talking after all.
"These two covid trajectories are almost metapolitical at this point, but they demonstrate the inescapable choice: organize society around the state or organize it around individuals, families, markets, and the institutions of civil society. We can live in a political world or in an economic world. Mixing the two is not working."
