But what were the top media stories of 2021?
To me there were only two stories that reached mass audience that were notable. Mostly mass media (except for weather, sports scores, and markets prices) were a vacuum when I paid any attention which was pretty rare (except for checking the weather and scores and markets.)
#1 Rogan interview Sonjay Gupta;
#2 McAfee interview Aaron Rodgers (he did this weekly–the one that got millions views was the one where they did his non-vaccination).
I was interested in the Elizabeth Holmes trial until they did her defense which appeared to me to consist of “shit happens; no idea why everybody got all in a huff”. If she is acquitted or convicted I am now totally whatever.
Julian Assange driven to having a stroke! Truly sad and truly outrageous!
A more insane plight than any totalitarian dissident that I can think of ?
My list would include an increase in the “possibility of nuclear war with Russia or China” index. The significance of a story is a multiplicative function of: (a) whether it in fact occurred; and, (b) the severity that the result would have, if indeed it occurred. People can argue about the magnitude of (a), but everyone would agree that the war-index increase is not zero. And (b), all should agree, approaches infinity. Thus, the product of the two is enormous.
No sooner than US SPACE FORCE deployed its offensive weapon when Two successive Chinese launches failed within a month, highly unusual in China’s space launch history.
“The media is unreliable” – Ron Unz
At informing the public of the truth. But it is very reliable at “reporting” the financial oligarchy’s fictions. Not coincidentally, it lies as with one voice. So who can afford to buy the entire mainstream media? In 1915 the JP Morgan bank started down this path by buying editorial control of the 25 most influential newspapers in the US. JP Morgan had become the dominant bank in America by becoming a tentacle of the dominant bank in Europe. That bank also financed the establishment of Israel. So today our mainstream media covers up Israel’s crimes.
And they cover up the financial domination of a Congress that covers up Israel’s crimes. And they cover up the ongoing war profiteering, weapons dealing, and drug dealing of that financial octopus. All in all, quite consistent, hence “reliable”. Which suggests that other major media coverups, such as JFK, RFK, 9/11, and Covid, might also be traced to the same financial octopus.
“War Profiteers and Israel’s Bank”
Thanks for this solid bunch of interviews. Great selections of topics, knowledgeable and insightful guests, probably one of the best year-end news roundups out there.
Agree. And they should include the backstory of the Zionist empire stoking the conflicts through its Anglo proxies.
I fall completely in the “Corona doesn’t exist” camp. While I appreciate your concern about the “bioweapon” aspect to the propaganda, that’s exactly what it is – a propaganda technique. It reinforces the false idea that there is anything out there and that this invisible thing is dangerous. It gets people divided and debating “biobabble” about cleavage sites and random gene sequences when it really just deploys circular reasoning. The gold standard here is HIV, which also does not exist – and RFK Jr’s book briefly touches on the Perth Group, who showed that HIV has not been proven to exist. In that context, there were also “bioweapons” stories as well as the great piece of disinformation that Robert Gallo stole Luc Montagnier’s virus – it’s all a lie that reinforces the idea something exists.
You really have to go through the basic fundamental papers with the caveat that scientific studies and journals can be a vehicle for propaganda. The best step through was done by Mark Bailey of New Zealand: https://drsambailey.com/2021/11/11/the-covid-19-fraud-war-on-humanity/
Another gold standard analysis was done by David Crowe:
The OffGuardian was onto the nonexistence of a new virus very early, as was the book “Virus Mania,” which is cited heavily in RFK Jr’s book. The person who suddenly showed up and pushed this was Dr. Andrew Kaufman – but then he goes off the deep end and says “there are no viruses at all.” Perfect example of controlled oppo. Then David Icke jumped on it – you have the truth associated with a guy who is talking about Lizard people.
Yes, people die, and as RFK Jr’s book shows, much of that was Remdesivir. Another component was the altered standard of care that puts doctors into trigger-happy mode in terms of early ventilation. Then you have old people with pneumonia who stay away from medical care until it’s too late because they’re fearful about this new pathogen they’ve heard about on CNN. Add to that a testdemic where you’re just reclassifying existing nonspecific pneumonias, and boom: you’ve got the appearance of deaths. But walk down to your local mortuary: you don’t see overflow coffins on the curb.
As for “molecular evidence shows it was artificial.” Remember – the whole sequence was ticky-tacked together in a computer, so of course it’s going to appear artificial. Even the head of the Chinese CDC said they never isolated a virus.
And even if this thing existed, there was still the German Blue Ribbon panel report in May 2020 denouncing everything as a “global false alarm” stating it was much-ado about a simple cold virus no different than 100 others already in circulation at any one time:
