So, good news, folks! It appears that GloboCap’s Genetic Modification Division has come up with a miracle vaccine for Covid! It’s an absolutely safe, non-experimental, messenger-RNA vaccine that teaches your cells to produce a protein that triggers an immune response, just like your body’s immune-system response, only better, because it’s made by corporations!

OK, technically, it hasn’t been approved for use — that process normally takes several years — so I guess it’s slightly “experimental,” but the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency have issued “Emergency Use Authorizations,” and it has been “tested extensively for safety and effectiveness,” according to Facebook’s anonymous “fact checkers,” so there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.

This non-experimental experimental vaccine is truly a historic development, because apart from saving the world from a virus that causes mild to moderate flu-like symptoms (or, more commonly, no symptoms whatsoever) in roughly 95% of those infected, and that over 99% of those infected survive, the possibilities for future applications of messenger-RNA technology, and the genetic modification of humans, generally, is virtually unlimited at this point.

Imagine all the diseases we can cure, and all the genetic “mistakes” we can fix, now that we can reprogram people’s genes to do whatever we want … cancer, heart disease, dementia, blindness, not to mention the common cold! We could even cure psychiatric disorders, like “antisocial personality disorder,” “oppositional defiant disorder,” and other “conduct disorders” and “personality disorders.” Who knows? In another hundred years, we will probably be able to genetically cleanse the human species of age-old scourges, like racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia, etcetera, by reprogramming everyone’s defective alleles, or implanting some kind of nanotechnological neurosynaptic chips into our brains. The only thing standing in our way is people’s totally irrational resistance to letting corporations redesign the human organism, which, clearly, was rather poorly designed, and thus is vulnerable to all these horrible diseases, and emotional and behavioral disorders.

But I’m getting a little ahead of myself. The important thing at the moment is to defeat this common-flu-like pestilence that has no significant effect on age-adjusted death rates, and the mortality profile of which is more or less identical to the normal mortality profile, but which has nonetheless left the global corporatocracy no choice but to “lock down” the entire planet, plunge millions into desperate poverty, order everyone to wear medical-looking masks, unleash armed goon squads to raid people’s homes, and otherwise transform society into a pathologized-totalitarian nightmare. And, of course, the only way to do that (i.e., save humanity from a flu-like bug) is to coercively vaccinate every single human being on the planet Earth!

OK, you’re probably thinking that doesn’t make much sense, this crusade to vaccinate the entire species against a relatively standard respiratory virus, but that’s just because you are still thinking critically. You really need to stop thinking like that. As The New York Times just pointed out, “critical thinking isn’t helping.” In fact, it might be symptomatic of one of those “disorders” I just mentioned above. Critical thinking leads to “vaccine hesitancy,” which is why corporations are working with governments to immediately censor any and all content that deviates from the official Covid-19 narrative and deplatform the authors of such content, or discredit them as “anti-vax disinformationists.”

For example, Children’s Health Defense, which has been reporting on so-called “adverse events” and deaths in connection with the Covid vaccines, despite the fact that, according to the authorities, “there are no safety problems with the vaccines” and “there is no link between Covid-19 vaccines and those who die after receiving them.” In fact, according to the “fact-checkers” at Reuters, these purported “reports of adverse events” “may contain information that is incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental, or unverifiable!”

Yes, you’re reading between the lines right. The corporate media can’t come right out and say it, but it appears the “anti-vax disinformationists” are fabricating “adverse events” out of whole cloth and hacking them into the VAERS database and other such systems around the world. Worse, they are somehow infiltrating these made-up stories into the mainstream media in order to lure people into “vaccine hesitancy” and stop us from vaccinating every man, woman, and child in the physical universe, repeatedly, on an ongoing basis, for as long as the “medical experts” deem necessary.

Here are just a few examples of their handiwork …

  • In California, a 60-year-old X-ray technologist received a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. A few hours later he had trouble breathing. He was hospitalized and died four days later. His widow says she’s not ready at this point to link her husband’s death to the vaccine. “I’m not putting any blame on Pfizer,” she said, “or on any other pharmaceutical company.” So, probably just another coincidence.
  • A 78-year-old woman in California died immediately after being vaccinated, but her death was not related to the vaccine, health officials assured the public. “(She) received an injection of the Covid-19 vaccine manufactured by Pfizer around noon. While seated in the observation area after the injection, [she] complained of feeling discomfort and while being evaluated by medical personnel she lost consciousness.” Despite the sudden death of his wife, her husband intends to receive a second dose.
  • Also in Michigan, a 90-year-old man died the day after receiving the vaccine, but, again, this was just a tragic coincidence. As Dr. David Gorski explained, “the baseline death rate of 90-year-olds is high because they’re 90 years old,” which makes perfect sense … unless, of course, they died of Covid, in which case their age and underlying conditions make absolutely no difference whatsoever.

And then there are all the people on Facebook sharing their stories of loved ones who have died shortly after receiving the Covid vaccine, who the Facebook “fact checkers” are doing their utmost to discredit with their official-looking “fact-check notices.” For example …

OK, I realize it’s uncomfortable to have to face things like that (i.e., global corporations like Facebook implying that these people are lying or are using the sudden deaths of their loved ones to discourage others from getting vaccinated), especially if you’re just trying to follow orders and parrot official propaganda … even the most fanatical Covidian Cultists probably still have a shred of human empathy buried deep in their cold little hearts. But there’s an information war on, folks! You’re either with the Corporatocracy or against it! This is no time to get squeamish, or, you know, publicly exhibit an ounce of compassion. What would your friends and colleagues think of you?!

No, report these anti-vaxxers to the authorities, shout them down on social media, switch off your critical-thinking faculties, and get in line to get your vaccination! The fate of the human species depends on it! And, if you’re lucky, maybe GloboCap will even give you one of these nifty numerical Covid-vaccine tattoos for free!

    They’ll have to kill me first to give me the vaccine. That way they can be sure I didn’t die from it.

  2. So… if all the people who died after getting the vaccine would have died anyway, the vaccine at the very least didn’t help. Even if it’s not causing death, it’s obviously not preventing it. I guess the new hospice approach is “nothing to be done but make them more uncomfortable and give them less time.”

    While I’m on the side of “forget about the virus and move on”, I think there’s a lot to be said for the “organ damage” angle. Both I and my 86 year old mother were infected with the “virus” early on when there was only supposed to be a handful of cases. My mother was VERY sick compared to a “bad flu”. Today she experiences “COVID tongue” whenever she eats milk products and has lost her sense of smell. In my case I had an ordinary “bad flu” episode, and have lost much of my hearing. It points to brain damage in my opinion.

    You cannot control your body’s autonomous functions directly. You cannot regulate your digestive function just by thinking about it. You must do so indirectly. What you can do is regulate your breathing, and this is what Yoga teaches. You can regulate your heart rate by controlling your breathing.

    The heart is the fulcrum chakra. Above are the three superior chrakas of speech, insight and transcendental thought. Below are the body’s chakras, the digestive, sexual and root chakras.

    The Heart mediates between the lower and the upper realms. The only means by which the higher functions can influence the lower is through the heartbeat, which is regulated through breath control. Learn deep, rhythmic breathing. If you don’t want to do Yoga, swimming is ideal.

  28. Not tedious. Relevant.

    If we’re talking American vaccinations, it will have been Pfizer first, Moderna second. As far as I know, nothing else is being used there yet.

    Of course, in true dystopian fashion, they are saying outright that you won’t have a choice and that you should take whatever they give you. Probably not true, but I’m not there and can’t verify.

    AstraZeneca, Sputnik, and the Chinese vaccines are available in various other countries, but here again, the phony furor over “availability” means they can stick you with whatever they have. Johnson & Johnson is available in South Africa, and as usual, Brazil was the proving ground for that one. FDA voting on it shortly.

    Hate to shill for China, but – they are going to back everyone into a wall about getting a vaccine, so if you can, get SinoVac or the other Chinese one (forget name atm); both are normal dead-virus vector. SinoVac is available in Turkey, for example
    All others are mRNA or adenoviral vector, the latter also more or less experimental and with its own history of casualties.

    I am not advocating for vaccination, especially not for Gates’ fake pandemic and his frankenvaccines, but they will not leave us a choice, and everyone has to accept that. Gates and the consortium of technocrats chose this moment to clamp down on the entire planet. Only thing we can do is try to dodge their manoeuvres.

    • Thanks: TheTrumanShow
  29. @animalogic

    My take is that the Gates-Big Pharma complex obviously doesn’t want any competition at all, especially not from Russia or China, but they can’t come out and say “competition should not be allowed”, as, at the very least, those two nations will not play along – so they also have to allow companies like AstraZeneca and Johnson&Johnson to sell their adenovirus vaccines. There is still a geopolitical ceiling to what these people can do, but I don’t expect it to last much longer or give us anymore room. Russia, for example, believes the WHO to be an objective body, and not what it actually is – essentially the church of Gates’ new dispensation.

    This is the logic of their “it doesn’t matter which vaccine you get” dogma and all the noise about effectiveness. They don’t want anyone distrusting the mRNA vaccines, because that technology, and the attendant ID2020 passport, are two of the jewels in Gates’ Infinity Gauntlet, if you’ll excuse the metaphor. They’d rather profit off of us directly with the mRNA vaccines, but any vaccine will do if it gets us plugged in to ID2020 – where we’ll receive our regular alerts for “new strain” booster shots and so on.

    I would advise any single, able-bodied man reading this comment, who does not want to be forced into this way of life, to remain single and head for the hills … of Papua or Western Sahara.

    The US authorities will not recognize SinoVac or Sputnik V or any vaccine not ‘approved’ by the FDA. So Americans not on the list of ‘elites’ (such as US embassy personnel in Russia, who are clamoring for the Sputnik jab, apparently) will have no choice.

    Remember: Joe Bidet has reportedly ordered 600 million doses of the Pfizer/Moderna jabs (https://apnews.com/article/vaccine-biden-600-million-doses-july-b7845a7d0f709199265d9243598b629e), thus accumulating enough to fully vaccinate 300 million people.

    Based on 2019 figures, there are about 330 million people in the USA with about 73 million being kids under 18, leaving just under 260 million adults to be jabbed.

    Thus, the authorities have provided a large margin for wastage (or hidden plans to jab a lot of our kids, too), and it would seem they are hell bent on getting every single adult poked with the experimental gene therapy that is 100% safe and effective, as long as you define ‘safe’ as occasionally killing recipients, and ‘effective’ as not providing immunity or stopping transmission……

    True. It was a very good piece of writing — the truth is the “Vaccine” is not about your health but about multi-Billions to positioned Big Pharma/Gates and the Agenda they and the NWO Satanists plan to roll out on it of “Vaccine ID”/ongoing “vaccinations” which will be used to control/terrorize, demoralize and depopulate the Peons — most of which are cheering it on…the fact that the cheap remedies for this Cold Virus have all been lied about if not removed tells you all you need to know about what is up — the Medical authorities we are all suppose to “praise” as “heroes” are in on it basically and despicable. Bought off and owned by Big Pharma decades ago.

    This scam has been long planned by the NWO creeps of the Rockefeller Foundation/Gates Foudation and their legion of “Experts” seeded in at every level of Society — Gates admitted in an interview in 2019 that he is a “Minor Wizard” and “Spells” can’t affect him — that is a rank of Satanist under the highest rank of “High Wizard” — almost no one picked this up unfortunately. No doubt many of them networked with him are Satanists also: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/07/bill-gates-says-jobs-was-a-wizard-in-getting-staff-to-keep-apple-alive.html

    Are you truly unaware of what Fremasonry is about?

    In your wiki article is this:

    The Freemasons’ War Hospital, was opened by London Freemasons with support from lodges in Gloucestershire (Royal York Lodge, Stroud) and around England during the First World War in Fulham Road, London, in the premises of the former Chelsea Hospital for Women, and treated over 4,000 servicemen by the end of the war.

    Those brotherly masons were so concerned that they founded a hospital to help repair all those who survived the gassings and machine gunnings during their genocide of millions of Europeans.

    Did you know that Washington and all the “founding fathers” were freemasons? What about the Jacobins? And Napoleon? What about Marx? Of course there was Judah Benjamin, Jefferson Davis, Albert Pike, Sherman, Grant and Lee all conniving together like freemasons during the civil war. Leading up to WWI the entire round table and the Eugenacists were masons, incldung Kipling. Churchill was leading the masonic genocide of Europe during both wars. The Black Hand masonic lodge saw to it that Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in July 1914. Of course there is that weird cooincidence that the car Ferdinand was driving had the date of the end of WWI on its plates (A111 118). Balfour the freemason wrote the letter to Rothschild the freemason declaring the creation of Israel in 1917. Then there is the fact that the Spanish Civil war was started by Freemasons, and Franco, Mussolini, Hitler and Petain all banned freemasons during WWII.

    So could it possibly be that freemasons running amok in every planet across the globe (Mao was a Yali) might have something to do with the sycronized lockdowns and vaccination propaganda? You tell me…

    Fremasonry is merely kabbalism for non-jews.

    The Hep A vaccine is done in two doses, I think several childhood disease vaccines do a “booster” six months after the initial dose.

    In any case, the mRNA technology is not a vaccine, it is a genejacker – permanently polluting the recipient on a genetic level. What happens when one genejacked individual breeds with another? Or a non-polluted individual?

    In any case, the consistent result of all mRNA manipulation of target mammals so far has been immune system collapse. We are already seeing it in children, with rapid and evolving immune responses- adults will take longer, but in six months to a year……..

    Fremasonry is merely kabbalism for non-jews.
    _____________________________________________

    It wasn’t always that way. The original masonic lodges were a form of deism, where they worshiped the logic of the universe, and were trying to understand the logos. This was a white man creation, not Jewish; they were trying to understand the natural order.

    Various tradesmen would join the masonic lodges, something like it was a trade union. They also policed themselves so they did good work in the construction of buildings and the like, and not taking sordid gain on their fellows.

    So, you are right in the word Freemason is different than mason. Free-Masonary lineage is directly from Frank Jacobs who in turn was an acolyte of Sabatai Sevi. Sevi (1666)re-oriented Judaism even more toward Kaballa, if that can be believed. 1666 was a special year for the Jews and Sevi was god incarnate. Things like the Kol-Niedre were turbocharged under Sevi, to include advance prayers to pre-wash away the sin of crime and usury i.e. the family business.

    The founding fathers of the U.S. were more deist and mason than free-mason. The (((oriental))) free-masonary lodges were new, and were making in-roads into America during the colonial period.

    Simultaneously, Atlantacist finance capitalist constructs were infiltrating London, led by the Bank of England (1694) to then subvert England.

    It is amazing that the founders saw so much, given that finance capitalism and atlantacism was relatively new on the world scene, Judeo-Christianity was new, and then there was infiltration of the masonic lodges using Kabbala techniques.

    If you read Franklin's biography, you can see that he is not hostile to religion, but he does note inherent contradiction to some Judeo-Christian sects belief systems. Franklin was interested in improving the commonwealth, not in extracting and being a secret society like free-masons.

    Even Franklin's Junto was well known, and he spread Juntos (groups of wise men) into other colonies, rather than letting them grow into a centralized pyramid system.

    Yours is very much a total bullshit reply. I live in Alberta, Canada, and the provincial government here has provided the public with a significant amount of data regarding the SARS CoV-2 panic, and this data does not support a characterization of the threat of SARS CoV-2 like yours.
    There have been 5430 “cases” in people aged 80 and over in our province, in which 4218, or 77.7%, survived.
    Among Covid “deaths”, of whom 84% were over the age of seventy, 72.3% had three or more of the following comorbidities:
    Diabetes, Hypertension, COPD, Cancer, Dementia, Stroke, Liver cirrhosis, Cardiovascular diseases (including IHD and Congestive heart failure), Chronic kidney disease, and Immuno-deficiency.
    Covid “deaths” have an average of 3.6 of those comorbidites.
    But even with three or more comorbidities, 69% of such Covid “cases” survive.
    At least 70% of all Covid “deaths” occurred among people who were already consigned to long-term care, where the pre-Covid life expectancy for a male was about two years.
    So 70% of deaths are among people in long-term care, 84% are over the age of 70, 72.3% have three or more comorbidities, and still 69% of people with three or more comorbidities survive, and 85% of people over age 70 survive.
    What is real is the fact that this entire phenomenon is a hoax.
    Here’s a great example of how this lie works:
    In past flu seasons, the vast majority of outbreaks occured in long-term care and assisted living facilities, with 71.1% in 2012-13 and 52% in 2013-14.
    The rate of laboratory-confirmed influenza among people aged 80 and over has been as high as 7 times the rate in the rest of the population in the past ten years.
    So it is well-established that such facilities are highly susceptible to outbreaks of infectious respiratory illness.
    It’s so common for people in long-term care to contract influenza-like illness at the end of their lives that laboratyory testing of such individuals is rarely done. Until Covid arrived.
    But here’s what the Candian Nurse’s Association says:
    “The dreadful toll COVID-19 is taking on Canada’s
    elders is both shocking and shameful. Shocking,
    because no one foresaw that 80 per cent of
    coronavirus deaths would befall residents of
    long-term care.”

    Vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccine, are entirely safe. There is nothing dangerous about them, and no ulterior motive to them. Distrust is a difficult thing to combat, and there’s often no use in providing evidence to those disinclined to believe (though here is some, just in case). It will be difficult to insist that our loved ones are simply wrong — and it may strain or temporarily disrupt some relationships.

    But the stakes are too high for anything else. If a friend or family member tells you they won’t get the vaccine when it’s their turn, tell them in no uncertain terms that you will not see or speak to them until they do. Tell them that their mistrust is based on rumor, not evidence, and the vaccine is safe.

    Don’t engage with misinformation, if they present it. It’s long past time to stop framing vaccine doubt as a debate; it’s not. It is the truth on one side, and a bizarre, dangerous lie on the other.

    The problem here is that the lower tier masons know nothing about what is going on at the top. It has always been so. Already a decade before the French Revolution Adam Weishaupt had already infiltrated the highest levels of freemasonry across Europe.

    Ben Franklin, while staying in England during the Revolution, was an avid member of the hellfire club. There are lots of sordid tales about what Franklin was up to during his stays in England and France.

    Then there is this entirely dubious explanation of Lafayette coming to the US and being “converted” to Freemason right before the French Revolution, plus Lafayette’s second role during that second revolution.

    I simply do not know enough to be willing and able to enter into a long debate about what happened across Europe and America starting about 1770. I am convinced that this wasn’t just about freemason “deists”.

    That the founders, as high level kabbalistic mason’s, were privy to some kind of long term satanic plot dating back hundreds of years and continuing into the present seems plausible to me.

    I point out that where the vaccine is concerned, it must be avoided at all costs, not merely because of its side-effects, but because of the totalitarian precedent it will set. That is its biggest side-effect – a century of lockdowns, the lives of all humanity in shambles.

    The average time it takes to approve a vaccine is 12 years. The success rate is near 30%, unlike most pharma products with their less than 5%.

    This was true until 5 years ago, but the latest trend has not been quantified.

    Autopsies on dead lab animals usually show damage to the liver.

    This requires a one, two, and five year intervals. Not one vaccine, including Sputnik, has passed this test (except Sputnik has been more aggressive with publishing autopsy data, even if we’re talking 3 month intervals).

    There isn’t really a lot of uncertainty about the “disease”. I like to take any opportunity that I can to point to the data provided by the provincial and federal governments where I live, Alberta, Canada.
    The long and short is that we were told that SARS CoV-2 was highly likely to cause categorically higher rates of infection, morbidity and mortality than seasonal influenza.
    In simple terms, the provincial government launched a comprehensive and unprecedented series of socio-economic restrictions in mid-March. There was no body of scientific evidence to support the implementation of these restrictions, and no body of scientific evidence that supported the contentions that SARS CoV-2 would produce these categorically different rates of infection, morbidity and mortality.
    In the event, one year later, the only categorical differences between SARS CoV-2 and other viruses is the response of the government and health agencies.
    Up to 80 times as many SARSCoV-2 tests are conducted daily compared to influenza testing in prior years.
    Testing and diagnosis of Covid-19 occur frequently in the complete absence of clinical evidence, which is entirely unprecedented.
    Infirm, very sick elderly people are tested for Covid when such individuals would not be tested for influenza prior to the advent of SARS CoV-2.
    The severe outcome rates for SARS CoV-2 are not categorically different than those of seasonal influenza in the last eleven years:
    The hospitalization case rate for influenza in the province has varied from 23.7 to 42 per hundred in the previous ten years. The hospitalization case rate for Covid-19 is 4.4 per hundred.
    The ICU admission case rate for influenza in the province has ranged from 2.7 to 7.7 per hundred in the previous ten seasons. The ICU admission case rate for Covid-19 is 0.7 per hundred.
    The only category of severe outcome for which Covid-19 appears to be more severe is deaths, but the manner in which deaths are assessed is completely different for influenza than it is for Covid.
    In the past, only deaths in hospital with lab-confirmed influenza were counted. For Covid, hundreds of deaths among very sick, frail, elderly residents of long-term care were counted because unprecedented testing occurred during Covid. In the past, these people were not laboratory tested for infectious respiratory disease, and were not admitted to hospital at end of life, thus such deaths were never included in the influenza mortality tables.

    We were supposed to take our two grand daughters, aged 4 and 5, this weekend. Unfortunately, starting earlier this week, our two grand sons, age 9 and 10, caught the flu. Then our son and daughter in law caught the flu too. Now the our two grand daughters have the flu as well, and our weekend plans have been cancelled. Nothing new here, this has been happening to families with kids for centuries.

    Here is the problem: Children don’t catch “covid” and children don’t pass it on. But according to health “experts” and “scientists” across the planet, there is no flu anymore because of all the covid “measures”.

    Could someone explain this cognitive dissonance to me? or is “covid” merely the draconian tyranny of fake narratives. Oh well, I guess we should just take whatever vaccine these “experts” and “scientists” declare to be “effective” and then we can be certain that all is well.

    I don’t think you even hovered over any of the links. I don’t think you’re being genuine, because CJ isn’t linking to the news to gather and collect facts from which he articulates an essay but rather linking to them, for the most part, to showcase what’s being said by those articles to further the longer-running point CJ’s been making about the on-going information war. Like the title says, right? These are all scenes in that war.

    Maybe you’re right that in another article, someone can discuss prophylactic ways to overcome specific or general viral infections, so as to supplement/complement/eradicate the largely ineffective strategies forced upon us by unelected technobureaucrats. That would be a different front in the larger information war, and worthy of its own essay or article. For example, Paul Craig Roberts used to post those kinds of help-yourself-to-get-healthy suggestions, but he, nor CJ, shouldn’t have to do that for every essay or article they write, nor for the one you happen to click upon.

    ________________

    Baby, it’s cold outside.
    As Mike Anderson discovers as he ventures outside after staring out his picture window for months and months watching his neighborhood scene turn from summer to fall to a freezing tundra, the squeaking of the snow under the slow moving cars, the howling wind, the scant few hours of daylight.
    It’s enough to force one to go out of doors, down the slippery slope of your own driveway, cross the slushy street, almost get run over by the local babushka low-riders cruising the town. Mike wants to visit his neighbor, Charlie Johnson, just home from a long stay in the mental hospital just up the street, sent there for his letters to the editor. With that in mind, Mike didn’t see this coming. He also encounters the rowdy lunch crowds downtown, and the free-thinkers in the bar he didn’t quite know was even there before.

    He also runs into Alice-ish, a young girl who is not home watching Family Feud or Wheel. She’s out walking, in the park, talking to people.

    Alice-ish is not defeated, she’s just getting started and she graces Mike with her years of wisdom and spirit and lets Mike know the end is not yet here.

    Just try to imagine that.

    If worse comes to worst in terms of their cutting you off from society, get a thousand dollars in cash, make an appointment to take the vaccine, and go in. If the individual with the needle looks propitious—say, black—tell him or her that you’re deathly afraid of needles and try to bribe them into signing that certificate saying you got their death serum. If he or she doesn’t look propitious, leave and try again later. This isn’t guaranteed to work, but there’s a good chance.

    Bingo! – a very large portion of LTC residents are in “Medicaid beds” STATES pay 60-80% (sorry, I am guessing a bit but correct relatively). Fed Gov pays that or more for MediCARE (hospital costs) (and picks up the rest of the MediCAID costs)

    Moving a patient from a hosptial to an LTC shifts costs to the states.

    My state is perpetually on the verge of default (as is Illinois) – the incentive is therefore enormous to move the LTC folks “along” – tax revenues totally collapsed here Q2 2020 … the difference between solvency and default here might just have been the the cull of the elderly in the LTCs last year.

    Maybe not. There were indications the big Italian Covid-19 outbreak last spring occurred after an influenza vaccination program as well. I’ve seen no indication the possible connection has ever been investigated. However, the antibody-dependent enhancement effect appears to be fairly well established:

    Many vaccines work by inducing neutralizing antibodies. However, not all antibody responses are created equal. Sometimes antibodies do not prevent cell entry and, on rare occasions, they may actually increase the ability of a virus to enter cells and cause a worsening of disease through a mechanism called antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

I’m betting Ben had no garbage bags and hockey bags to smuggle out cadavers and even at 4am was afraid to be noticed.

    I believe that the French and American Revolutions were colour revolutions and manipulated, inorganic events. Quite likely, the Glorious Revolution was a trial run.

    I see nothing wrong with original Judaism and its Mt Sinai god given to Moses commandments that are very clearly stated in the Torah and any one calling themselves a jew that breaks gods laws isn’t really a jew in my book as they don’t deserve to be in the religion club of the divine for breaking the club rules..

    It’s funny how I got some umbrage for stating the obvious – Anglin, Hail and I have been calling this from the start. It all obviously goes just one way. It isn’t prophecy, it’s merely extrapolating from the laws of power and technology: those in power will seek to retain or increase their power by any means, and technology always tends to dominate human relations.

    The singularity was never going to be “AI”, but the intersection of social media, medical and surveillance tech, and political power. COVID was just the excuse to bring it on.

    Yes, IF the vaccine is a weapon, it makes no sense for the deep state to only use it against their supporters. Therefore, if it is a weapon, at some point the vaccine will become mandatory. Alternately the vaccine could offer protection from a future plague that is actually deadly. Maybe the COVID 19 vaccine protects against a new chimeric Ebola virus that floats through the air. Coming very soon to a globe near you.

    But, I think it’s only about profit. Selling worthless vaccines for moar fake dollars. Booster shots for 8 billion people every 6 months. Transition to a fully centralized global economy.

    Fremasonry is merely kabbalism for non-jews.

    Masonry predates Judaism handily. The compass and square in symbolic conjunction are a global archaeological theme, along with the stone pyramid, which is of course the fruit of masonic knowledge and labor. Masons are temple and monument builders – for this reason they predate religion. Priests depend on Masons and not vice versa.

    The compass and square in conjunction, forming the shape of a star, represent the human condition: the intersection of heaven and Earth. The compass is the measure of heaven (used to draw curves) while the square is the measure of Earth (used to draw lines and angles). Thus Masonic symbolism even anticipates the conflict between linear geometry and the curvature of spacetime. Even now science lacks a theory of everything; knowledge and expertise requires the use of different standards at different scales. In all cases total knowledge or attainment cannot be approached directly. It must be approached from multiple perspectives at once.

    It is important to note that Yahweh demands the services of masonry; he demands a sanctuary in Israel known as Zion, and Isaiah describes Immanuel (the seed of David, born of a virgin) as the cornerstone of Zion which will cause all non believers to stumble and fall. This prophecy in Isaiah is the black root of Christianity. Christians are as ardently Masonic as Jews; both want to build a citadel for Yahweh from which he can rule the world. It’s not Kabbalist, it’s Judeo-Christian.

    The square and compass is no more diabolical a symbol than the yin yang: both express the idea that an apparent duality constitutes an actual unity. Zionism co opts all power structures and I have little doubt that modern Freemasonry is in thrall to Zionism. But it was not always so.

    This is why they are covering up and lying so much about the origin of the Virus — I have heard several MDs/Researchers state there is ZERO chance this is not man made — but Fauci and other NWO “Experts” were all involved in the development of this CVirus thru Gain Of Function research in the USA, Canada and elsewhere and then when the order was given (for appearances anyway) by Obama to close it down in the USA because it was to dangerous (seems something got out of Ft. Dietrich — all those “vaping” deaths/illnesses that appeared and then suddenly gone….) — Fauci then offshored it so it ended up in WuHan as the video explains —

    I believe the true evidence would show that Fauci has a great deal of blood on his hands and that is another reason he has been pushing so many insane/worthless measures — “Social Distancing”/Lockdowns/Mask Wearing (none of which have any Scientific basis) — which tend to help cover up with hysteria what really happened….

    I can’t judge the Pequeno Curso, and it really helps to get teaching that is geared to one’s starting point in one’s own language, mistakes that are typically made by, say, Portuguese speakers, etc.

    That said, I have done a lot of language learning and looking for good pedagogical approaches. Since your English is obviously good I do suggest you at least take a look at some of Janey’s videos at CollegeRussian.com. For instance, her explanation of the hard vs. soft consonants in Russian is the FIRST time I have been able to grasp the point and how the system works (after three years of high-school and college Russian and looking at various online resources). In the comments many others said the same. Same goes for her intro to the alphabet, to gendered nouns, cases—all very basic but the lessons are clear and pedagogically well structured. She also has great tips and resources at her website to improve the way you study Russian.
    Here is her video on the palatalized (soft) vs. nonpalatized (hard) consonants. You MUST grasp this to make any headway in Russian.

    Frater Kronos at 80+ is the most senior member of this group. He likes to be in the U.S.A. Has contributed
    to the founding of a number of super-Lodges, and admits that he is a convinced neo-aristocrat, though he prefers the term demo-aristocrat. This means that a spiritually qualified, initiated, élite must guide humanity, but
    that the outer forms of democracy must be preserved. Quote: “The majority of the too-many-billions of individuals inhabiting this planet, also in the West, live an animalic, anonymous and meaningless existence. It is
    important that these semi-bestial creatures should be guided by sane minds and energetic hands – even if these often need to remain invisible, leaving the ‘front office’ to politicians acting as scarecrows and lightningrods. All this must happen according to very precise rules…. The historic and most serious error of the progressive Freemasons has been to consider it right and appropriate to grant freedom, equality, and brotherhood to all human beings – even to those unworthy on a moral, intellectual and spiritual level.”

    When a person is learning a language it can be very frustrating; not only is one learning a language but one is also stuck trying to figure out How to Learn a language as a adult.

    I was delighted to find I had retained the basics of French last year. I have now mastered most of the difficult sounds of French- 3 r sounds just for example. I have benefitted from having studied it for 6 years in school (poorly taught) and having heard it growing up. I’m halfway through Hindi, a bit of a tough one for English speakers, but I love the way thoughts are expressed in the language. It really has a great deal of ‘heart’ as a language.
    This brings me to my main point. Learning a language as an adult can be a tough deal so I believe coming to appreciate, even love the target language is important. If I can truly take delight in Hindi, then reading Premchand in parallel text is an adventure not a dreaded chore. I have found that reading is a very powerful way to learn once the intermediate level approaches and I wish I had figured this out a decade ago. Russian is on my wish list and I thank you for being pointed towards a good resource.

    But even if you directly attribute every single one of these deaths to the vaccines they still remain statistically irrelevant.

    To expand on this: Hopkins’ examples cite a total of 90 deaths–out of more than 200 million people who’ve been vaccinated so far. That’s less than one death for every 2 million vaccinations. For comparison, around 1 person in every 7000 (worldwide) dies every day from all causes.

    To be clear, I’m not trying to claim the vaccine is safe. I don’t intend to take it until it’s mandatory–and I mean jail-time-if-you-don’t mandatory. There are plenty of good reasons to avoid it; it’s just that Hopkins’ laundry list isn’t one of them.

    I suggest that you read in full Dr. Michael Osterholm’s CIDRAPpodcast of June 2, 2020, on the wearing of masks. He mentions specifically how lame the CDC’s guidance and documentation of their recommendations was. He pointed out that most of the documentation had nothing to do with a virus. One of the articles documented was a meta-study undertaken at the behest of the CDC, because the latter wanted to change its mask wearing policy.

    “Special Episode: Masks and Science”

    https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/covid-19/podcasts-webinars/special-ep-masks

    He states categorically that no positive effect of mask wearing has been established, also for surgeons undertaking surgical interventions.

    I infer that Osterholm came under pressure from the WHO and the CDC, as he later recommended mask wearing *when ordered to do so*.

    This does not change what he actually said on June 2, and the science hasn’t changed since then.

    The whole mask wearing thing is political. That is why the constant changes of direction.
    It is like the Politburo working out its policy on, say, playing jazz in public or wearing one’s hair longer than mandated by socialist thinking: thaw, freeze, thaw, freeze, ad infinitum.

    For centuries physicians and others observed the world, did some of their own “experiments” to figure out how things worked, and devised treatments based on correlations between therapeutic actions and cures.

    There were virtually no RCTs, yet many cures were achieved, even though practitioners lacked the technology to establish exactly why they worked.

    I would say that most of the vast body of medical knowledge that humans possess, about their own bodies and those of animals, was accrued in this way over centuries. Just as humans managed to develop edible plants from the plants they observed growing in their environment without the benefits of “gene science.” Indeed, modern science has been to a large extent a process of stealing this knowledge and putting it under lock and key and charging admission to the majority of humanity.

    Sure, RCTs and blind studies etc. reveal many more details. But to throw out any useful medical treatments that have been shown to work and where the evidence of efficacy is correlations between treatment and cure is plain stupid, and ahistorical.

    What is even worse, is that the hidden-hand puppeteering, in addition to being subverted by psychopaths, gets its funding with usury.

    The hidden hand also has to gas-light the population rather than just telling the straight truth. The end result is clown world.

    For example, to honorably reduce population, you install population controls, e.g. China. The Chinese people are just told straight up… stop making babies.

I’m not sure of the cause and effect, but the female members can’t entertain the very idea. In fact, they’re “encouraging” a/k/a badgering me to get it. I’ve been agnostic/apolitical on the vax issue, biding my time until–if–the jabs are safe. I might prefer to get the more “traditional” vax provided by the Russians, but a trip to Moscow would be most problematic for most of us.

    So is the vaccine for shingles. The first dose made my arm hurt for a week. The second, received about four months later, gave me flu-like symptoms and a bad headache the next day.

    When I told my doctor about it, her reaction was a nonchalant “Oh, yeah, about 50 percent of our patients say they had that kind of side effect.”

    I am going nowhere near any kind of COVID vaccine.

    Before you make such sweeping mischaracterizations, consider that most Americans have to be vaccinated against certain illnesses as children before they are permitted to enroll in school: diptheria, pertussis and German measles. And as I recall, these had to be repeated in the first grade.

    I was just a young child when the polio vaccine became available and I and everyone in my family got it.

    I happen to get a flu shot every year; I especially thought it necessary when I had to use public transportation on a regular basis.

    I am not against certain vaccines. I am against people like Bill and Melinda Gates, people with no medical training whatsoever, trying every which way to Sunday to coerce the entirety of the population into taking an unproven, and to my mind, dangerous, experimental treatment so they can acquire even more money and to satisfy their sick desire for power.

    LOL = particularly appropriate reaction to Sean Collier, who wrote that propaganda piece for Pittsburgh Mag — his other job is doing stand-up comedy.

    reasonable guess writing for Pittsburgh Mag + stand up comedy desert in Wolfe-lockdown PA pushes one to write whatever the check signer tells you to write.
