The most salient feature of totalitarianism is control of movement, which entails tracking each citizen. Before the internet era, this could only be achieved roughly.

The state knew John Smith lived on Lumumba Street and worked on Stalin Avenue. If Smith wanted to spend a night at a woman’s apartment, she had to register him at the neighborhood police station. Big Brother entered the bedroom, but not totally, for he couldn’t hear all the sibilants, exhalations and squishes. Daytime movement was generally unmonitored, but the state always knew where you were at night.

Smith’s ID card also prevented him from moving to the next city, much less getting a better job there, so he was stuck in Bidenstadt, his hometown.

Smith was free, though, to walk into any state store to browse, for as long as he wanted, its empty shelves.

Now, the state knows where Smith is all the time. At 5:51:15PM, this scowling man is again at Blather Bar, next to Red Levine, who, despite his name, also has alternative right tendencies. Vein-popping fans of Steve Sailer, each has left hundreds of fist-pumping comments, under “sigofnig” and “xxxxrabbi.”

For the state, the whole point of tracking is to reward or punish, mostly the latter. In the past, you’d be invited to the police station, or just dragged off the street. Now, punishment can be much tidier, and instant, even for the tiniest sin. That’s where the vaccine, green, access or health passport comes in.

Required to have one, Smith can be prevented from entering Blather, or any bar, for that matter. If his transgression is bad enough, Smith will be blocked from any indoor space, period, except the shoelace factory, corner grocery and his basement apartment, though even this last privilege can be revoked.

Traipsing home exhausted one winter evening, Smith discovers his passport no longer opens his building’s door. He must have said something at work, or the evening before, at Blather. Maybe it was an online comment. Smith should have known. Several of his neighbors have been locked out. He deserves it, Smith thought of one he disliked intensely, and not just politically. Let him die! Now, it’s his turn.

To prevent such scenarios, we must reject the newly-introduced right-to-live pass. Worse than Soviet-era internal passports, it can prevent us from buying even a cheeseburger. As with the jab that’s designed to sicken, disable, sterilize or kill, it’s not about our wellbeing. No pass, no entry means we’re constantly at their mercy.

Having already killed millions, they want to cull billions of us and strangle the rest. Half of this earth must be reverted to nature, they preach, but they’re not going anywhere, nor will they curb their indulgences. As they splurge on slabs of gold-leafed Aberdeen angus, we’ll have to swallow wood lice and brown marmorated stink bugs, with upcycled shit for variety. Trust the science!

Covid has been engineered to steer us to this point. Terrifying us with inflated death figures and apocalyptic predictions, they herd us into vaccine chambers, while explaining, preposterously, that only Nazis resist.

Presenting himself as synonymous with “science,” a psychopathic doctor keeps insisting we trust him, even as he wobbles or contradicts himself, with his only constant a relentless push for the poison jab, which, of course, also rakes in billions for his patrons.

For helping Big Pharma to sicken, addict and kill over half a century, Fauci is rewarded with a bigger salary than any US government employee’s, including the President’s.

ORDER IT NOW

Though the left is supposedly most sensitive to animal rights, they just shrug at Fauci having puppies, with their vocal cords cut, eaten alive by ants. These staunch defenders of “people of color” are also unfazed by Fauci’s mass murder of black and brown babies in dubious experiments.

If you have a relative or friend who’s still uncertain about Covid jabs, give him immediately Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s The Real Anthony Fauci—Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health. You might save his life, and his children’s, too.

Meanwhile, Pfizer boss Albert Boula indignantly declares that those who resist his genocidal vaccine are criminals! Satanist inversion, indeed.

Before this staged insanity, they teased us with tales of space travel and mars colonization. They knew we weren’t going anywhere, except under, en masse.

Their plan can be thwarted, though, if there’s a collective will, but first, we must see through their lies, and call out the liars.

“No way I’m going to stick my chicken neck out for nothing! I’m not going to dox myself!”

Acquiescing, you’ll be forced to wear a “health” bracelet, or have a coin-sized chip implanted in your skull. Since happiness, relief, anger or arousal, etc., can be measured, the state will be instantly alerted to your incorrect response to a face, text or sound, as emitted by your Samsung or Apple tracking device.

It’s hard to be amputated from your portable porn theater, vanity broadcast and selfie camera, I know.

Already, our lives are mostly virtual. We’ve been eased, all along, into lockdown, but life, all of it, must be reclaimed.

    Excellent. One of the vulnerabilities that must be attacked head on is “the Science”. Contrary to popular opinion, even in public school, at least when I was processed, NOBODY emphasized the importance of believing in science. Instead, they emphasized the importance of following the scientific method. And that is exactly was has been forsaken in this pandemic state of emergency. The key element of the scientific method is repeated observation, which is one reason we used to demand long term safety data before administering a new medical treatment en masse. Consensus is not actually required at any point in the scientific method. In fact, the method encourages you to confirm or disprove any scientific conclusion for yourself. It is the essence of skepticism and the basis of enlightenment. But TPTB would rather transform it into a black cube.

    DO NOT “TRUST THE SCIENCE”. TRUST THE METHOD. I have a new article on my substack considering the latest rhetoric in California, which desperately tries to avoid admitting that ICU’s are filling up with “vaccinated” people, while simultaneously predicting a big winter surge in influenza and COVID. That’s right, even though the flu “vanished” amid last season’s orgy of COVID counting, this season it will be blamed for any nasty cases of pneumonia among the jabbed.

  2. Most will accept the chip in exchange for convenience and other “perks.” Surveillance is ubiquitous and inescapable. The state and Big Data will persecute rebels, and the vast majority will look the other way. Sheep.

    Sorry, there is no “collective will” to end this. There is nothing to “reclaim.” Westerners are soulless, walking dead. They willingly line up for clot shots and don’t wince when the person in front of them goes into convulsions. They were bred, born and trained since birth to be slaughter cows. Judging by how incredibly fat Americans are, they are ready for slaughter.

    I predict our evil overlords will push too hard and too fast. The global economy/ Ponzi scheme is dead and gone. “Covid Relief” was the last bailout/robbery of a hopeless system. Without financial control of the masses, they need to transition to biological and technological controls. Bankers don’t know dick about biology or technology, so they will fail, hard. The only question is, how much damage will they do before they bleed out from shooting themselves in the foot too many times?

    I agreed with you in general. However, all studies by reputable researchers follow the scientific method, if indeed they are reputable and doing science. There’s the rub. Who’s to say the researchers are reputable and following the correct procedures? Even The Lancet has been challenged on at least one of their studies. Even peer reviewed studies are not sacrosanct.. There can be bias particularly in unexamined assumptions. I’m all for science, but

  8. @Palinurus

    Many of us have Ph.D.’s in real sciences and/or backgrounds in heavily analytic disciplines and/or a history of making sound decisions. We have been born with powerful mental faculties and we are not afraid to use them. We can and do read the scientific literature and judge it on its merits and against real world data. We can tell truth from lies.

    At this point we no longer even need “science”. The facts on the ground are plain for all to see. If the syringes do anything good, it sure is hard to see. We have as many dead in the US this year as last year despite all the shots and boosters. Mega-vaxxed countries like Iceland, Israel, Ireland, and Singapore are having massive waves. Gibraltar is 100%+ vaxxed and cancelled Christmas. If the vaxx works so great how come it doesn’t work at all?

    Meanwhile the official statistics clearly indicate that healthy people under 40 are under no threat by the “virus”. Children in particular are effectively invulnerable to the thing.

    So we find ourselves in a situation where we are being forced to take a medicine that we clearly do not need and that clearly does not work.

    You don’t need “science” to realize this is apocalyptic stuff we are dealing with here. I mean if the media and the government can compel us to poison ourselves, then we are no longer human – we are cattle.

    “Instead, they emphasized the importance of following the scientific method. And that is exactly was has been forsaken in this pandemic state of emergency.”

    I worked for a very large Canadian commercial real estate developer and manager. I was in management there (inclusive of management responsibility for operating sub-businesses associated with this real estate; and maintaining asset integrity – which for me, included management of many fairly large rehabilitation, renovation, and real estate development projects; and revenue-enhancement efforts & cost-controlling efforts; ….. and everything mentioned all meant to further the primary goal ….. which is to enhance the value of the asset). These efforts were extremely well-measured by the company I worked for. It was crystal clear, what the job was (enhance the company’s fortunes). One could not survive in this type of management environment, if one did not perform (in every way, … inclusive of savvy negotiations with superiors as to annual budget preparations, …. the company featured very heavy upper management analysis of asset value and net income, vs. budget, every quarter). Of course, this environment required many many pro-forma work-ups, of various ideas, …. working out the probable benefits vs. costs, …. and the uncertainties. Personally, I never had any of my own substantial pro-forma work turn-out to be sour. Through this method, I did find the company some stellar deals and opportunities to entertain, as well.

    Here is the deal, ….. you can’t be good at this pro-forma analysis if one does not approach it as per the scientific method. The scientific method features both empiricism, and synthetic thinking modes (i.e. – how does one come up with hypotheses to treat by way of empirical methods without synthetic thinking modes eventuating said hypotheses?).

    OK, …. if you are with me so far, …. here is a bit of a quandary:

    The very large Canadian commercial real estate developer and asset manager that I worked for knew all about the truth of the scientific method (because they rewarded people like me that skillfully wielded it). And this was a company tied into the Canadian corporate world at the very highest levels (which being a Canadian company, is not in the same category as the very largest American real estate developers and asset managers, ….. by American standards it is more of a middling size).

    I don’t think we can really claim that the globalists running this Covid Officialdom racket are devoid of skills around the scientific method. That is the truly frightening thing about all this. It seems to me, …. that some very critical and important aspect of reality-truth is being kept hidden from us, somehow (like the globalist elitists know something we, the general public, still don’t know).

    It was a long while back since I semi-retired early from that career. There was no need to consider pro-forma hypotheses that feature the recommendation of criminal intent by the company, … it was well understood by all managers that any such risk (going offside as to the law) was an unacceptable consideration. I would like to think that is what is still occurring at this company I used to work for. But at any rate, …… the globalists controlling the Covid Officialdom narrative DO obviously feature pro-forma hypotheses that feature the recommendation of criminal intent by involved corporatist parties. Without lawful constraints on their pro-forma hypotheses-making ….. nearly anything is now possible ….. it’s humanity’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice moment, …. the moment of astounding human hubris borne of the ontological conceit of the few (to my mind anyways), as enabled by the globalist-corporatist power structure, ….. a structure the features both personal-responsibility-anonymity by way of the lawfully sanctioned personhood of corporations, which such condition then enables the slicing and dicing of the personal responsibility that stems from said ‘personhood’, in such a way, that said ‘responsibility’ is just passed around, among corporate entities, more or less saying (when things go sour) … ‘not my bailiwick’ … which is a power-dispersing condition, … however this is paired with what is otherwise a very power-centralizing structure, …… top corporate managers and asset owners otherwise posses hugely concentrated power, …… just not the ‘responsibility’ stemming from that power, so much).

  10. Linh’s columns have been coming fast and furious lately – Love it! I look forward to every one. He’s been reporting from Africa for a while now, which is most interesting, as he claims that things are worse in the US than in South Africa. After all the organized black looting and rioting going on in the States, plus open borders, signs of total societal collapse, I believe it. From his missives, it appears that Namibia, formerly part of SA, and Linh’s current hide out, is doing swimmingly with its low vaxx rate. Whites, a small minority, are actually moving there. That’s telling you something.

    What are we to make of the fact that black Africans, with very low vaxx rates, are not dying of covid, while highly vaxxed Caucasians (and Jews) are dying in great numbers? Hard to believe this what our eugenicist Overlords intended, a world without people who know how to preserve the crumbling infrastructure.

    Blacks, remembering outrages like the Tuskegee Experiment, are wisely vaxx hesitant. In that, they are smarter than gullible whites. All they need do is stand their ground and refuse the death jab. As formerly healthy young and middle age whites succumb to disability and death, they’ll eventually come out on top. Is this The Plan or has it gone totally awry? Surely Gates/Fauci/ Schwab, et al., hardly humanitarians, have something else up their sleeve.

    This business of “trusting the science” or “following the science” is an altogether new phenomenon. No one ever “believed” in science. Trusting science is like trusting the guy down the street who gets regularly plastered and knocks on the neighbors’ doors at night to warn about UFO’s.

    Fifty years ago, “science” gave us margarine to eat instead of butter. It was better for your heart it said. Now margarine is considered a sure artery blocker. Eat butter. Eggs were declared poison as was red meat. Grounded people never listen to these things and live long and healthy lives of moderation in all things.

    Science is like a drunk or a madman. Giving it more money every year only makes its binges more frightening and dangerous. No one believed the distant threat of “climate” madness, so it came up with fear of the flu. Keep your children from the STEM courses unless they have a very healthy skepticism to guide their personal educational growth.

    The addition of government into this “science” madness has had the dangerous effect of handing the drunk madman a variety of weapons.

    A general rule of life is that if a weird lefty like Naomi Wolf believes something, you are probably safe taking the opposite side. Follow a real conservative like Richard Hanania. Linh has started unwittingly playing into the hands of the very people looking to cull white conservatives. The death figures are very clear, especially in Europe. Unvaccinated rural whites, including middle aged and younger, are dying horribly in hospitals. Vaccinated migrants are healthy and being trained to take over their jobs. Already we hear about “labor shortages” in the Western world that are being thrown in our faces as an immediate reason to open borders and let in brown labor.

    That is some truly great writing, among Lihn’s best I believe. If, if, the sane people conduct their lives in the attitude of “I can be killed, but I cannot be made to submit”, there’s a chance. If that attitude is dead – or dying – then there is no chance.

    Nothing, because that is not a “fact”. In the US blacks are dying at much higher rates than whites. No one really knows how many black Africans are dying.

    Do you think it is a coincidence that once vaccinations started in earnest we immediately got a “variant” that kills younger unvaxxed people at a much higher rate than the original virus did?

  19. For the first time in about 15 years I met up with an old friend who’s also a successful tech entrepreneur. (He employs a full-time mechanic to tend to his fleet of cars!). Naturally I raised the scamdemic and after a brief flurry he said he doesn’t “want to go down that rabbit hole”. Fair enough and we went on to spend a very pleasant couple of hours together.

    Then – about two hours after we parted I got a Whatsapp flamer, an unmitigated torrent of vitriol, accusing me of being a lunatic right-wing Trump-loving Tucker Carlson-watching conspiracy theorist who is literally causing people to die.

    I for one am pleased at, e.g., the massive increase in stillbirths among the jabbed.

    That’s a thing now, you know – although once the media gives you a semi-plausible explanation (“it’s always been like this, studies say“), you’ll parrot it as if it’s Gospel without looking at the data tables.

    Miscarriages in the most-gullible would be another mitzvah, but it’s hard to tell if that’s happening – it’s difficult to get data on ΔX, when most of X usually goes unreported. Most miscarriages happen before anybody knows the seed has been planted, so we can only hope that the ‘delta’ is positive in the jabbed.

    For me and my ilk, the whole thing is whelmingly Eugenic. That’s because I want selective pressure to favour non-compliant personalities and to strongly penalise compliant personalities.

    “Surveillance Valley is an attempt to recover part of this lost history. But it is more than that. The book starts in the past, going back to the development of what we now call the Internet during the Vietnam War. But it quickly moves into the present, looking at the private surveillance business that powers much of Silicon Valley, investigating the ongoing overlap between the Internet and the military-industrial complex that spawned it half a century ago, and uncovering the close ties that exist between US intelligence agencies and the antigovernment privacy movement that has sprung up in the wake of Edward Snowden’s leaks. Surveillance Valley shows that little has changed over the years: the Internet was developed as a weapon and remains a weapon today.

    Excellent work as usual, Linh.

    The oligarchs will not be able to exploit this virus to the extent they intend, but many innocents will suffer in the interim. Most people are cowardly but currently content, their bellies full and their houses warm. As that changes, and brown-outs occur in the dead of winter and food becomes scarce, these same timid herd animals will join those already in the street. Even now, the mass protests in Europe threaten to become riots, which then will lead to revolutions. We may be on the verge, God willing, of seeing governments toppled. Before it reaches that point here, Fauci, Gates, Buffet and the rest will be offered up as human sacrifices to forestall revolution but the die has been cast.

    The virus is real but not a major danger, the vaccine is marginally effective but largely useless, and the plans to dominate the world through Covidmania are doomed to fail as all utopian and greed-based plans fail. I’m actually optimistic as to how this plays out and for the first time understand the attraction of guillotines.

    The “method” is always administered by people. Usually crooked people. You can’t have a method without a people. Thus, don’t trust “the method” either.

    Or look at it this way. Let’s stipulate that someone does an experiment, following your scientific method to a T (perfection is impossible, but let us gloss over that, for the sake of argument). OK. So you have this perfect experiment, perfectly objective, perfectly conceived and carried out, giving substantive, unimpeachable results.

    There are still two crooked parts to this little scenario.

    Imagine the experiment as being a line: ________________

    Now what happened before the line and after the line?

    Why this experiment and not some other? __________What are you going to do with the results?

    Neither the before the line question, nor the after the line question is “scientific.”

    It is personal. People choose to do things (say, experiments) for selfish, monetary, trendy, irrational, crazy, and many other totally un-scientific reasons. And people also take the results of something like an experiment and put it to selfish, monetary, trendy, irrational, eracy, and many other purposes.

    By the way, what we call “science” (or “scientism”) nowadays is manifestly a false religion – false in the sense that it is divorced from reality and human nature, and religion in the sense of claiming to have answers to the big questions. It has a creation myth (big bang / multiverse / chemical soup), an original sin (nature red in tooth and claw), eschatology (global warming), a church (university system), priests (“professors / scientists / thinktankers / experts”), etc. This false religion was developed mostly in England at its apex in the 17th-19th centuries by people such as Bentham, Malthus, Darwin, Huxley and Spencer. It preaches that some people are intrinsically better (“more evolved”) than others who are basically cattle, that the planet is a finite resource that is running out (Malthusianism -> anthropogenic global warming), that human nature is infinitely malleable (transhumanism), that the point of life is to have as many thrills as possible since we are basically meat anyway (utilitarianism) and that might makes right (positive law). Until we uproot this false belief system, we’ll keep having problems like the current one with the enslavement / depopulation.

    On a separate point, good for Linh, Africa looks awesome right now, the two things that concern me about it are food insecurity and disease. I suspect the idea is to starve out Africa once the rest of the world submits. But settling down for the duration in a heavily Christian (Muslim could also work) African nation might be a great idea. I had big hopes for Russia, but they have gone under for now – at least to some extent. Belarus and Florida look awesome but heavily depend on Lukashenko and DeSantis staying in power. I had hopes for the Balkans, but the situation there is iffy as well though better than in other places. I guess we’ll all see what’s what soon enough. Godspeed to y’all.

    The hard part now is to get people to listen. I think this might be a turning stone.

    In British Columbia (BC), Canada, whistle-blowers came together at a rally to draw attention to this widespread problem, and to the revelation that some 13 stillborn deaths occurred in a single 24-hour period at Lions Gate Hospital. All of the deaths occurred in babies born to fully vaccinated
    mothers, although, much of the public remains unaware that this happened. In response, Drs Mel Bruchet and Daniel Nagase, along with other concerned members of the public, converged to file a complaint in front of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) office in North
    Vancouver.

    I emailed fact checker to see what they have to say but have heard nothing yet. You start talking about dead babies and folks wake up. The masses indeed have their heads firmly sunk in the sand, that’s the challenge.

    Thanks Linh for mentioning the book authored by RFK junior. The Kennedys have been in the crosshairs of the deep state ever since Joe father resisted America’s involvement in WWII and JFK’s daring to put restrictions on the CIA starting with the firing of CIA head Allen Dulles. JFK, being a leader with the interest of the people at heart did not shy away from expressing his admiration of Adolph Hitler for the latter’s achievements in the service of the people. All the crimes attributed to Hitler have proven to be nothing more than self projection by the TPTB of the Anglo Zionist Empire who are blatantly displaying their contempt and hatred to the people now that the noose of the police state has gotten very tight around the necks of the people.

    Problems cannot be solved if we fail to ask the right questions.

    What are America’s biggest problems?

    Why do these problems continually grow worse?

    Who profits from perpetuating these problems?

    Having worked for all the political parties (Democrat, Republican, Green, Libertarian), I’ve learned why no political party will address the fundamental problems that must be solved if America is ever again to be a healthy and prosperous nation.

    [MORE]

    In truth, there are many reasons why no political party can address these problems. But perhaps the first and foremost is this:

    No institution that profits from perpetuating problems is genuinely inclined to solve these problems.

    All citizens must think for ourselves, do our own research, and question more.

    Problems cannot be solved if we fail to ask the right questions.

    Political censorship by the media monopoly and other institutions has tragically prevented the most appropriate questions from being asked.

    But when we learn to ask the best questions, we can learn what must be done.

    And when we understand what must be done, we can actualize practical solutions for the worst problems America faces today.

    Like most Americans, I’ve experienced our nation’s growing problems for many decades. I’ve seen America sink like the Titanic from being a beacon of liberty to an authoritarian post-industrial Third-World theocracy.

    Only the appropriate remedies have any hope of solving America’s problems.

    Thank you. The business you were in, real estate, is closely allied to the construction industry.

    I am originally a civil engineer. But I got out of it almost immediately as it was blatantly obvious that no honest business can survive for long in that environment. I worked on a nuclear power station (briefly), a hotel in central London and a road close to London.

    Almost all civil engineering contracts originate from local government or from the state. Even the construction of private housing requires endless interactions with officialdom – from planning permission onwards.

    The room for corruption is huge. Knowing the right people and rewarding them well is crucial to getting contracts. Most contracts are loss-making as the winning bids are deliberately too low. To make profits, it is essential to have modifications to the original contract. These modifications are charged at an altogether different rate. At the site level, it is essential to reward those who approve the hours worked, those who approve the quality of materials, the testing and so on.

    Frankly, it is amazing at how things do get eventually built. Stretching out and delaying completion is an art in itself. I find it hard to believe that Canada is completely different. Australia is certainly no different from the UK.

    Here is an example of British genius, the nuclear power station that I worked at. Construction was supposed to take 5 years. I was there at year 8. It took 23 years to complete and never worked at 100% of its rated output. It was originally costed at £83 and ended up costing £685.

    Personally, I think it is dead easy to get on board the top management of a real estate company.

    Linh’s scenario of such detailed control may seem far-fetched, but it is not beyond the thinking of the oligarchy. We know experiments are being done on injecting electromagnetic nanoparticles into the body which can find their way to specific sites in the body, including in the brain. These particles can respond to external electromagnetic pulses, and trigger responses in nearby neurons. They can also respond to the electromagnetic pulses of nearby neurons in the brain, and be detected by external devices. We also know from electrode implant experiments that a charging bull can be stopped in its tracks by a remote signal to an electrode implanted in its brain.

    Thus it’s conceivable that a person’s emotions could be read by their pocket computer. And if their emotional response to an internet article they’re reading was deemed “undesirable” by the PTB, they could be given a signal that would make them feel nauseous. So they would avoid material that made them feel nauseous. They may even believe the nausea was their own reaction to that material, and decide they didn’t like it for some intuitive reason. Conversely, if the person is reading or watching material favorable to the PTB, they could be given a signal that would trigger a pleasurable feeling. This would steer the person toward such material. They may even believe this reaction was their own natural reaction, and that they do really like this material for some intuitive reason that they don’t understand. And they may decide to trust what they believe to be their intuition. The current state of the art may not include that level of control. But it’s conceivable that a forced mass vaccination program is setting a precedent for a future mass vaccination that would include such electromagnetic nanoparticles.

    We know the corporate media is tightly controlled because of its blanket coverup of JFK, RFK, 9/11, and the Afghanistan war. So we know it’s owned by the perpetrators of those crimes. And we know there has been a large amount of information suppression by the corporate media regarding the Covid virus and the mRNA vaccines.

    What are we to make of the fact that black Africans, with very low vaxx rates, are not dying of covid, while highly vaxxed Caucasians (and Jews) are dying in great numbers?

    I don’t deny there are other issues, but the fact that a lot of black African countries have populations with an average age of about 18 years old has a lot to do with it.

    The average westerner is pushing 40, with many double that or more.

    They backed Paris into talking autonomy – https://www.rfi.fr/en/france/20211127-french-government-ready-to-discuss-autonomy-for-guadeloupe-after-protests-covid

    It was a no win for La Metropole – allow Guadeloupe to escape the mandate and thus encourage more revolt at home, or keep oppressing a former slave colony across the ocean with a white police force?

    Of course, it has nothing to do with this “Tuskegee Experiment”, which most blacks had never even heard about before last year, and is just media cope to avoid admitting that blacks be wilin’.

    Weary, senescent whiteskins have no fight left in them. Not like that. A majority prefer to line up for their boosters and die out. It’s that simple.

    It took a global technocratic coup to turn blacks into the smartest demographic on the planet.

    But don’t be fooled re les braves of Guadeloupe – Paris is under marching orders from Gates / WEF and the combined weight of all other nations, having signed up for the Great Reset. They won’t back down, only pause and regroup.

    Bankers don’t know dick about biology or technology, so they will fail, hard. The only question is, how much damage will they do before they bleed out from shooting themselves in the foot too many times?

    It isn’t just bankers involved in this, of course. It’s all of Big Tech – and every other sector – with plenty of twenty-something Science! PhDs plugging away at all conceivable angles of bio-technological control. It’s foolish to minimize the full-spectrum dominance they’ve achieved.

    Most likely their experiment will run aground on non-white improvidence and resource collapse. It won’t make much of a difference to us at that point, however. The attrition and suffering will be too great to sit around savoring the collapse of civilization, and the Reset along with it.

    Science, like the church, should be legally separated from the state

    The use of the word “church” does not include all religions. Thus, the US military can “Destroy Seven Nations” wars in the Muslim world in the 21st century without any outcry. The Destroy Seven Nations wars are based on the way Israel was created in the Torah. It is a religious theme not a church theme. So it gets a pass from our faux free MSM.

    “Separation of religion and state” would be a better term to protect us every type of religion from getting control of our government. The first clause of the Bill of Rights does not say anything about “churches” being a problem. It says “no law respecting an establishment of religion“.

    https://www.mtsu.edu/first-amendment/article/885/establishment-clause-separation-of-church-and-state

    I agreed with you in general. However, all studies by reputable researchers follow the scientific method, if indeed they are reputable and doing science. There’s the rub.

    We have people doing what appears to be scientific research and even getting awards for their work but they aren’t actually using the scientific method.

    In the social sciences the conclusion is reached before the observation but they insist that they are following the scientific method.

    Anything related to race and gender is not actually studied. Peer review in the social sciences means getting a safe study (reaches the correct conclusions) published in a journal controlled by a handful of left-wing professors.

    Mismeasure of Man has been revealed as a fraud and it is still heavily used in the social sciences. It was “peer reviewed” by thousands and yet that didn’t matter at all.

  110. The heavy-handed totalitarian dictatorship described in the book “1984” is a red herring rather than a caution. Author Orwell was a disillusioned former socialist employed by MI5 during the second German war. The horrors of a monstrously intrusive state make for a great read, but in reality such measures are unnecessary and counterproductive. The state does not care what you believe or who you sleep with. All it wants is your obedience. It wants you to be just well educated enough to work in the businesses the ruling class owns, because your labor is the source of its great wealth. The state wants you to consume all the bright shiny toys you get to compete with your fellow drones to play with. The state wants you to salute the flag at the start of every sporting event, and feel your heart swelling with pride for your country and the glorious freedom it bestows on you.

    Secret police and concentration camps are unwieldy, expensive, and ineffective. The strongest prisons are the ones the prisoners create in their minds, so they never notice the bars on their cages. I have no use for the christians’ bible but I can’t help but think of the scene where Old Scratch shows jesus the world and tells him, all this you can have if you bow down and worship me.

    Also, the level of psychopathy shown by Fauci’s beagle experiment is deeply disturbing. It goes beyond the realm of dispassionate science and into real evil.

    No one who does those things to dogs is getting anywhere near me with a needle. They may as well be Charles Manson with a swastika gouged into his forehead.

    The cray cray goes beyond the Vax. For example, if you look at homes in Coral Gables, Fl you will see that houses selling for \$4-\$5 million in 2018 (three years ago) are now selling for \$12-\$15 million today.

    There are massive distortions happening in the economy at a pace that suggests the whole thing could fall over.

    There was no need to consider pro-forma hypotheses that feature the recommendation of criminal intent by the company, … it was well understood by all managers that any such risk (going offside as to the law) was an unacceptable consideration.

    I am certain that you mean well and likely do not consider yourself a criminal, but the industry that you worked in is so saturated with criminal-law and racketeering-law violations that it has become a parody of a farce.

    The following is the summary and conclusion from an extensive forensic analysis and report on a typical nominal mortgage security and transaction in Canada (name and address of the issuer of the security changed to “Smith” and “Main Street”):

    [MORE]

    Summary and Conclusion

    Forensically, or by its terms, the nominal agreement and transaction was that if Ms. [Smith] would first unconditionally underwrite and assume a debt and registered charge of \$800,000 to / in-favour-of VERSATILE / UPTON, and unconditionally convey all right, title, and interest in her property at [111 Main Street], Victoria to VERSATILE / UPTON as security therefore, and for a further payment of \$800,000 to VERSATILE / UPTON, on the named Maturity Date, then VERSATILE / UPTON might, but would not be contractually obligated or liable to, advance a net \$718,000, or any amount, to Ms. Smith.

    The nominal agreement is a non-agreement on its face, superseded, among several other fatal defects, by the prima facie illegality of the wager or game-of-chance so defined.

    In addition to the required prior transfer and delivery of the aforesaid assets to VERSATILE / UPTON (as a constructive entry-fee or application-fee), the foundational consideration, and as provided prominently in the nominal agreement and registered security is:

    2 (1) In return for the lender agreeing to lend the principal amount to the borrower, …

    6 (13) The lender does not have to advance… the principal amount …to the borrower

    To anyone with even a tertiary understanding of finance, the nominal securities and collateral documentation are cartoonishly defective and prima facie illegal. The substance of the proposal and transaction, and as executed in fact, was:

    “Legally and unconditionally convey to us all of the assets (everything real or financial and specific to this nominal transaction), and then maybe we will agree that we owe you something in return, and maybe we won’t.”

    The aggregate terms are on-its-face (prima facie) offensive to at least the following indictable (Criminal Code of Canada) offences / felonies (most are “serious [organized-crime / racketeering] offences”) and most of which are international-treaty-enjoined racketeering / designated offences:

    s. 206(1)(a) (scheme or proposal to loan money or to advance credit by any mode of chance),
    s. 298(1) (defamatory libel),
    s. 347(1)(a) of the Criminal Code (entering into agreement or arrangement to receive interest at a criminal [infinite or astronomical] rate),
    s. 347(1)(b) of the Criminal Code (receiving payments or partial payments of, interest at a criminal [infinite or astronomical] rate),
    s. 362 of the Criminal Code (obtaining credit (underwriting / assumption of debt from issuer of the security (nominal / pretended borrower) by fraud or false pretence)),
    s. 363 of the Criminal Code (obtaining execution of valuable security by false pretence),
    s. 366 of the Criminal Code (making [and / or soliciting] false document with intent (forgery-in-law)),
    s. 368 of the Criminal Code (uttering forged-document-in-law),
    s. 375 of the Criminal Code (obtaining (subsequent nominal payments) by instrument based on forged-document-in-law),
    s. 380(1) of the Criminal Code (fraud),
    s. 380(2) of the Criminal Code ((incipient) fraud upon the (financial) markets).
    s. 386 of the Criminal Code (false statement / omission of material particular to deceive registrar),
    s. 388 of the Criminal Code (false / misleading receipt),
    s. 397(1)(a) of the Criminal Code (falsification of an accounting record),
    s. 397(1)(b) of the Criminal Code (fraudulent omission of material particular from valuable security),
    s. 462.3(c) of the Criminal Code (counselling to commit enterprise crime / designated offence(s)),
    s. 462.31(1) of the Criminal Code (laundering of proceeds of crime).

    Note: Except where specifically noted, this analysis and report does not state, imply, nor assert, any act or action as criminal solely on the basis of a bare technicality.

    All acts and actions hereunder stated as criminal are both unlawful or malum in se, and a codified offence under the criminal law.

    That is why Canadian securities are saturated with “disclaimers” such as:

    NOTWITHSTANDING the provisions of any Statute [any lawful Act of Parliament, including the criminal law]… this contract [and security] shall remain in full force and effect.

    That is why the coherence of nominal disclaimers and contingencies in the nominal securities has continued to deteriorate to the point where they appear to have been drafted by cartoon-villains like Dr. Evil (from a different transaction and report):

    “4.3 If the Interest Rate stipulated herein [7.75%] would, except for this clause, be a criminal rate [greater than 60% p.a.] or void for uncertainty or unenforceable for any other reason, then the interest rate chargeable on the credit advanced or secured by this mortgage will be ONE (1.00%) percent per annum less than the rate which would be a criminal interest rate calculated in accordance with generally accepted actuarial practices and principles [i.e., 60% – 1% = 59% per annum].”

    In plain English, the clause / disclaimer provides that the bank has complied with federal securities law by declaring that the actual or net amount advanced to the issuer of the mortgage (nominal borrower) is \$2.1 million, and that the rate of interest defined by the stipulated payments is 7.75% per annum.

    Provided, however, that if it should be discovered or raised as an issue that the bank’s declaration is false (which it is on both counts – and flagrantly so), then the rate of interest is amended and increased to 59% per annum and applied against the amount secured regardless of the amount actually advanced (zero as and when executed and converted).

    In terms of its essential and material legal elements, it is the same as a bill of lading that declares that the containers / goods carried under it contain flour and sugar, provided however that if it should be discovered or raised as an issue that the containers in fact contain cocaine and heroin, then a certain chemical shall be added so as to change the chemical structure to something that is not illegal! This kind of at least egregious and profoundly-dangerous incompetence has infected and saturated the entire financial and legal worlds.

    It is how and why Madoff Investments, for example, was able to run a naked-Ponzi-scheme in broad daylight for 25 years. Nobody noticed because it is all a Ponzi scheme.

    Otherwise, the only thing missing from the disclaimer in the sworn and registered security is that it would be more consistent with reality were it to be written in crayon, and acknowledged as having originated from the games-room of a psychiatric facility.

    Note, however, that there is in fact one exceptionally lucid and coherent construction among the otherwise gibberish, and that is:

    “4.3 If the Interest Rate stipulated herein would,… be unenforceable for any… reason, then the interest rate chargeable on the credit… secured by this mortgage will be… 59% per annum].”

    Crazy like a fox.

    It is all criminal all the time and has been since at least 1981 when the Crown revived the scandalously wrongful and illegal practice of non obstante to give select Friends of the Crown de facto permission to violate the law – and then extended it into the criminal law realm.

    Why?

    So that the private banking system could ignore GAAP and the then new anti-money-laundering law in the form of a criminal-rate-of-conversion.

    Senator Buckwold: Then….the bank, theoretically, could be prosecuted for [money-laundering / receiving or converting interest-in-advance]

    Mr. Wong…theoretically, yes. That is one of the reasons this section is unusual, in that it requires the consent of the Attorney General before [criminal] prosecutions are initiated, thus preventing the application of the section to [criminal] commercial practices to which it was not intended [by the bankers and other controllers of the money / credit system] that it apply. It then becomes a question of the Attorney General’s discretion. (Select Standing Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce) (SSCBTC) transcripts; 4-11-1980 [November 4, 1980], 24:28)

    The private financial system in Canada at the time (late-1970’s and early-1980’s) was all but officially insolvent and bankrupt, and the only way out was to massively cook-their-books by illegally capitalizing and cross-leveraging interest in advance (already illegal under GAAP).

    The bank-lobbyists and the powers-behind-the-scenes had gotten themselves into a legal conundrum. They could not explain to the banking committee that what they were doing was already illegal under GAAP and the more general fraud section of the criminal law, and that the new anti-money-laundering law would directly criminalize their practices – and so came up with some seemingly obscure example that would justify reviving the practice of selective non prosecution.

    It is not just my analysis and research – the judges and the bankers have fully admitted the fact of the criminal offences – and are illegally choosing not to prosecute them for it.

    That is what covid is all about. They have seen this coming since at least the publication of the 1971 Report of the Crowther Committee in the U.K. that identified the most common method of allegedly calculating interest by nominal creditors as both civil and criminal fraud on the grounds that it is false and seriously misleading.

    Fifty years later banks throughout Canada and the U.S. continue to use the egregiously fraudulent methodology while the public remains oblivious to it.

    That is why even as a financial professional, you likely cannot tell me what is wrong with the following CBC website article nominally advising Canadians on the high cost of payday-loans (cbc.ca website, Payday Loans: Short-term money at a hefty price. October 4, 2006) (in material part):

    How much do payday loans cost?
    They are the most expensive legal way to borrow money
    .…
    Typically, you can expect to pay up to \$100 in interest and fees for a \$300 payday loan. The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada says that amounts to an effective annual interest rate of 435 per cent on a 14-day loan.

    The full article implied that the rate is 870% per annum but did not state so directly – and then asserted that by making half the interest charge payable in advance, then the interest rate is reduced to only 435%.

    Either way, the interest rate objectively defined by that transaction is just over 180,000% per annum. Here again, it is a fairly simple calculation and easily verifiable:

    =(((1+(100/300))^(365/14))-1)

    = 1807.54 or 180,754% per annum.

    If a virus or price-inflation is growing / occurring at the rate of 33.3% every 14 days, then virtually no educated professional will have any problem determining that the annual rate of growth / propagation / inflation is 180,754%. But throw a (credit-based) dollar-sign in front of the numbers and it is as if people’s brains short-out or cannot quite grasp the reality of it and instead go into a kind of systemic denial.

    If price-inflation is occurring at a constant rate of 100% per month, then something that costs \$100 today will cost \$200 one-month from now, and \$409,600 one-year from now. The annual rate of inflation is literally 409,500%. If I were to respond to the reality of it with: “Yes but 100% times 12 is 1,200%, and there are in fact twelve months in a year”, then I would be sent back to junior-high-school for not paying attention and / or for not doing my homework. It is just plain stupid yet this flat-out-embarrassing logic-flaw has been engrained into the global finance system owned and operated by the same entrenched-money-power that also gains the benefit of the deceit and deliberate mal-education of the masses.

    Assume that we are standing by the side of the road and a car drives by us at a near inconceivable 400 miles per hour. We can feel the car approaching from the increasing vibration and what is called the Doppler effect from the ever-building distorted sound of its engine screaming because the car itself is moving toward us at about half the speed of sound, and we can feel the massive movement of air in its wake as it passes by us and as a visual blur because it is moving at such a speed as is beyond our normal frame of reference.

    I then turn to you and I seriously insist to you that I am a professional who is in the business of measuring speed and that the vehicle that just went past us was moving at 1 mile per hour.

    You would obviously conclude that I am either an idiot or a criminal because of the utter impossibility and ridiculousness of it.

    How is it then that people generally have virtually no reaction or even suspect that something might be wrong when some authority-figure tells them an interest rate (180,754% per annum) is 400-times lower (435%) than it really is (or rather vice versa)? Is it just that money and interest are not that important to even worry about such things?

    But the real mistake here is to assume that it has much to do with the numbers at all. Imagine if an ordinary taxpayer were to objectively make \$180,000 of income in a year, and were to then file a tax return claiming total income of \$435. When challenged by the government they respond: “Well \$180,000 is merely my real income. My nominal income is \$435. The government then replies: “Yes of course – how could we have been so stupid.”

    The real phenomenon is the ability of government and the judges of the Courts to accept whatever they are told by the entrenched-money-power, no matter how transparently fraudulent and / or flat-out stupid.

    And the corresponding incapacity of the masses to even perceive that something is seriously wrong with the whole process or even any small part of it.

    Where did you think that the multi-quadrillion-dollar ballooning of financial assets is coming from?

    It is coming from double, triple and quadruple counting of the funding-instruments that are passed-off as securities, and all leveraged by flagrant and criminal violations of GAAP.

    This is happening all over the world. The Canadian system is an anomaly because Canada is so owned and operated by domestic and international financial interests that they could, and did, bamboozle the public while internally admitting that a typical Canadian security violates over a dozen criminal law statutes. But here’s the thing – You can’t tell the difference in this respect from those in other countries because those others are just as flagrantly criminal.

    The legal system is populated everywhere by trained-monkeys who are handsomely rewarded for knowing what questions must never be asked.

    We’ve now reached the end of the line and the money power sees only one choice – either they are going to be held responsible for their actions – or else they kill off the masses.

    Our son turned 15 and to celebrate, he wanted have his birthday party indoors at a K1 electric go cart race track. What was great was the electric part – no gas fumes. What was shocking, at least to my wife and I, was how much control the race track manager had over everyone and the race in general. It was all for safety of course. When someone spun out of control or hit someone, with a simple press of a button he could “turn off” or “slow down” any of the drivers. When it came time to end the race, just like that he made everyone’s slow down to a crawl. Suddenly the power of it all became very real.

    While it was faster and cleaner and safer than old go carts of the past, it was also certainly LESS Free. Gone was our Autonomy. Gone was our Full Control. Gone was our anonymity on the race track. We were tracked and monitored at all times.

    When we all left the place, we all had a new vision of Tesla’s and Google’s (Waymo) autonomous cars. Once driverless cars are independent from us, we are dependent upon them.

    The MSM messaging relies heavily on kindergarten-level authority figures such as Tony “HIV” Frauci, Bill Gates etc.

    Also, the level of psychopathy shown by Fauci’s beagle experiment is deeply disturbing. It goes beyond the realm of dispassionate science and into real evil.

    Do you ever read any of the animal experiments conducted in thousands of labs across the world, or watched any of the various videos of the all the ways in which the mammals, avians, reptiles, &c get held down, sawn open, necks pulled, whole slices taken, or seen or smelled the smoke billow from the stacks?

    People want to believe that animal sacrifice ended hundreds to thousands of years ago, but if the earlier commentary concerning the religious fidelity of the New Scientists is at all correct, we’re in an Era of sacrificial worship where the numbers of animals sacrificed in the labs is many orders of magnitude greater than the temples earlier were moving. Read any number of journal articles where the animal has to die to get opened up so the researcher can make an observation (“Yup, it didn’t get cancer! It worked!”), and what is the verb they use to describe the killing, the word intended to be a euphemism? You already know it!

    It’s sacrifice.

    A small sample:


    Some of the scientists give in to sadistic urges and lash out at the violent resistance of the animals; in this sense, those lab nerds are no different from street cops. But nearly all of the scientists have to learn how to turn off their empathy towards other living beings, even if momentarily, in order to go about the business of churning through all that meat in order to divine the data. And, once learned, do you think the scientist is simply going to turn all of their feelings back on when they put the lab coat up on the hook —are they going to find it easier to reconnect with human empathy than the many soldiers who’ve had to kill and run over children in order to keep those military convoys shuttling napkins and plastic forks and portopotties out to the Green Zone?

    I’ve watched from the sidelines soldiers and scientists and cops enough to see how the desensitization and the slow, subtle march of psychopathy settle in. I’ve watched “average people” casually walk past homeless people, dying animals having been struck by cars, children getting beaten by out-of-control parents, mounds of litter in ditches choking streams of life. Ours is a sick and frustrating planet filled with people who deserve many more turns about the karmic wheel to burn off their ignorance, their cruelty, their avarice, their indifference, their lack of compassion for all things great and small —and I’m right here with all of you, turning and being turned, sickened and getting healed, struggling with only grace and silent guiding to keep me from giving in to the ease with which the psychopaths make it efficient.

    Even the casual way some of you talk to each other, insult one another, and just walk away from any kind of accountability to own your insolence and humiliating attacks, don’t you even see how such “little” things gradually chip and cut and crack away at the transcendence you carry within you, through you, alongside you? Does it ever get to you the ways in which you treat another living instantiation of God?

    If not, then don’t put it all onto an obvious wreck like Fauci, or whoever on these boards is our most obvious self-absorbed narcissistic clown. If you are not in any way guided inside by your own conscience to start treating and thinking of one another as divine and infinite and full of grace unacknowledged, then you are still on the path descended by those scientists murdering monkeys and those cops punching, and punching, and punching and screaming “Stop resisting! Stop resisting!”

    You are still going to be stuck on this planet, in these cycles, swirling around the void, never realizing the love you could share is the love that will save you.

    I’m sorry if this is even more “off topic,” but it just gets to me, being among humans, even just their signs left in virtual spaces, when humans were once the most amazing spiritual beings in this region of the galaxy, able to create out of their ardent love and their genuine intention cathedrals in the sky. You can still find them, some of them, up there, if you know the way to get out of your skins. I hate what they have done to you, what you have done to yourselves, what you do through one another to all the little ones who look up to you, but it is that same hatred that keeps me bound in this prison, pacing in ever smaller circles, until finally my Warden concedes that it’s time, and lets me loose to leave all of this.

    Until then, love one another. Let your love take hold. We can change all of this, right up to the moment it all washes away again.

    I was watching all this very carefully. Trump’s instincts were, that he was being played on covid. He said plenty to reveal that was his sentiment. He was right about that. Nevertheless, … Trump’s weak spot was the upcoming 2020 election. He couldn’t win in the media environment he has to swim in, if he called the bluff. He would have been crucified (political-capital-wise). He knew that. Trump thought ‘project warp-speed’ would kill two birds with one stone. What an idiot (even though I really do like the guy, very much … because I believe Trump is a fellow believer in the power of ‘true-west’). He didn’t figure-in, the full level of deceit, duplicitousness, and all round douchbaggery he was always on the receiving end of.

    Now, ….. with his wrongheaded project warp-speed, he won the election (though this was stolen). So in effect, …. Trump did bet right …. but what he missed was that this vaxx was going to be worse than a do-nothing project, and if he did not prevail (in not having the election stolen from him) …. he would not be there to drive executive policy towards what otherwise, might have been just a so-so result (by way of making the vaxx program 100% voluntary, and not eligible for the younger cohorts once we knew for sure there was a negative self-interest quotient, vaxx-taking-wise, for the younger cohorts, ….. which we knew for sure by around June/21 … but there was plenty of evidence to suspect that would be the outcome, even long before that). I don’t believe Mr. Trump would have entertained any of this vaxx mandate nonsense, and I don’t think he would have been willing to sacrifice some of our youth for political gain. Trump possesses common sense. It’s other people that don’t, and as such, allow themselves to become monsters through the exercise of their misplaced ontological conceit.

    “Genetically engineered ‘Magneto’ protein remotely controls brain and behaviour”
    https://www.theguardian.com/science/neurophilosophy/2016/mar/24/magneto-remotely-controls-brain-and-behaviour

    In one final experiment, the researchers injected Magneto into the striatum of freely behaving mice, a deep brain structure containing dopamine-producing neurons that are involved in reward and motivation, and then placed the animals into an apparatus split into magnetised [and] non-magnetised sections. Mice expressing Magneto spent far more time in the magnetised areas than mice that did not, because activation of the protein caused the striatal neurons expressing it to release dopamine, so that the mice found being in those areas rewarding. This shows that Magneto can remotely control the firing of neurons deep within the brain, and also control complex behaviours.

    Neuroscientist Steve Ramirez of Harvard University, who uses optogenetics to manipulate memories in the brains of mice, says the study is “badass”.

    “Previous attempts [using magnets to control neuronal activity] needed multiple components for the system to work – injecting magnetic particles, injecting a virus that expresses a heat-sensitive channel, [or] head-fixing the animal so that a coil could induce changes in magnetism,” he explains. “The problem with having a multi-component system is that there’s so much room for each individual piece to break down.”

    “This system is a single, elegant virus that can be injected anywhere in the brain, which makes it technically easier and less likely for moving bells and whistles to break down,” he adds, “and their behavioral equipment was cleverly designed to contain magnets where appropriate so that the animals could be freely moving around.”

    What he means is that their little headpieces were small enough and portable that the mice weren’t tied down by wires and tubes. Here is the article described by the Guardian’s piece: https://www.nature.com/articles/nn.4265

    But there’s obviously more articles to learn from. For example,

    But, there are also avenues taken that won’t need magnetofection or nanomagnetic particles. One can use ultrasound, for example:

    “Ultrasonic Neuromodulation and Sonogenetics: A New Era for Neural Modulation”
    https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fphys.2020.00787/full

    “Ultrasound Neuromodulation: A Review of Results, Mechanisms and Safety”
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301562919300043

    Many years ago, I was a police officer on a college campus also taking classes there. One guy I knew from classes told me he had to carry around this little device in his pocket as part of a survey he was in. He explained that there were advertisements broadcast on televisions or radio that emitted ultrasonics, and the device he had recorded them. At the end of a day, he’d connect his device to his computer, upload the data, and at the end of the survey, collect a small fee. Easy money. I thought about that for a long time: how often had my ears and mind gotten assaulted by ambient ultrasonics on ads, and what might that be doing? Maybe, I thought, he’s just LARPing and making a fool of me.

    Well, then ten years later, there’s this:

    Why is this important? Well, ultrasonics used in advertising is yet another way, in addition to integrating with WiFi, Bluetooth, cookies, browsing history, physical location beacons, cell networks, to achieve omnichannel marketing. What the hell is omnichannel marketing? Let’s catch up with the industry . . .

    “How to Develop an Omnichannel Marketing Campaign”

    https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jretconser.2020.102242

    Get the picture? It will certainly get you! The capitalist surveillance model is driven by advertising campaigns designed to hook, nudge, reinforce, and redirect individual consumers towards repetitive, predictable consumption. The digital reality a person creates by their participation in online and brick-n-mortar experiences becomes virtual, available, and “seamless” across multiple media: this same consistency of experience grounds the cognitive mind.

    People recall that Descartes attempted to argue that we can know there is a reality because to be deluded by illusion is to still be something, and that passive voice one expresses in doubting becomes an active tense of being, yet he could never overcome the hurdle of separating dream from waking life —so he simply declared that dreams are random and don’t seem to be as predictable and ordinary as waking life. Pascal responds to Descartes, whom he had met as a teenager and never shook off the feeling that Descartes was someone needing shaking, that we can imagine a man who lives a waking life faced with chaos and disorder, every day being unlike the rest, and yet whose dreams all return to a single, stable story —we don’t even need to imagine this, so Pascal’s writings even point out, because anyone who goes outside and decides to live at whim immediately finds that there is a lot of chaos and disorder coming one’s way, and we pleasantly dive into our false dreams of stable, ordered narrative, as we get them in theaters and webisodes and now binge watch them in streams.

    The omnichannel experience and all the technological mastery that follows in fulfilling the needs of industries, all manner of industries fashioned around mass consumption: all of this is about creating a Stable Reality underlying one’s cognitive experiences when being-in-the-world. It’s not nation-states and lawless governments that benefit from the 5G towers and the surveillance, it’s Disney. It’s REI. It’s Wal-mart. It’s Amazon. It’s Nordstrom’s. It’s BMW. And many more! It’s all the companies that advise these retailers and transnational corporations; it’s all the companies that insure them and manage their payrolls. A vaccine passport is a person’s ticket, so they say, for engaging in marketing and consumption, entertainment and socializing, buying and selling. The Golden Ticket is just a piece of virtual paper, but it is also the talisman that defines a new reality into which a human will descend and become fully integrated across the full spectrum of their Being, as it will enable them to walk through limitations that impede lesser beings as well as unify the fragments of their existence. Each person becomes the key protagonist of their own narrative, nudged each moment while tracked each microsecond, becoming a unity of their digital, biological, economic, social, material selves.

    The totality of their spiritual existence, omnipresently and omniscientifically observed and returned back to them, all watched over by machines of loving grace.

To make a typical dramatic female point she went out on her lunchbreak and began filling in the holes herself. When confronted by the White Knights he replied that he’s an equal opportunity employer and left her at it. That took balls even if it was about twenty years ago.

    Well this is true; according to “the Science”, God is not real. I find this an absurd position for the Science to take, since the Science also frets about not having a unified theory of physics, and not knowing how to observe the majority of the universe that it calls dark matter and energy. The fact is that the Science does not understand the foundation of reality, because they admit the foundation of reality cannot be observed.

    A lot of this also has to do with the rejection of the “God” of the Bible, who must be assumed to be YHWH, who acts only with greed and malice in his heart. Rejection of YHWH is rational. But are we also to reject that which is real, simply because it is also invisible?

    Aside from YHWH, agnostics and atheists are skeptical that self, or mind, or intelligence is involved in the foundation of reality at all. This is the dogma of the Science: that intelligence and personality emerge from a substrate that is devoid of these qualities. But what if matter emerges from the self, and not vice versa?

    I have seen too much, I know that personality is not just on the inside, it is on the outside as well. The experience of consciousness is of looking into a mirror. I have had too dialogue with the universe, it has too often demanded my attention, provided an omen, or a caution, or a blessing. I know it is alive.

    God is quite simply the whole.

    When Spartacus defied the Roman law and system, 5,000 of his gladiator army were crucified along the Appian (?) way from Rome to Capua. Without an ort of data, and contemptuous of cartography, I’ll say that’s a distance of 100 miles, so the crosses would be spaced by 100 feet along the way, or 200 feet if planted on both sides of the Roman road.

    Now I will suppose that it’s about 100 miles again from Lexington to Washington, DC. However, we have many, many more treasonous usurpers and yes-men to execute, so the impalement spacing will have to be much closer, say about three feet if both sides of the highway are utilized.

    Fauci and Gates are not enough. We have not only 99+% of Congress but thousands of school boards, thousands of hospital administrators, CDC, Google, FDA, idiot doctors, lying politicians…. If we go full Jacobin then anyone who promoted this crime, the most malicious and deadly of all time, will be impaled along the road.

    Dr. Smith omitted mention of the fact that it was the constant harassment by drug lawyers that caused the ΑΜΑ Council on Drugs to stop its longtime practice of testing and certifying new drugs for the benefit of AMA’s thousands of member physicians. After divulging the shocking truth that the current budget of the U. S. Food and Drug Administration allows government inspection of drug factories on an average of only once in five and a half years, Dr. Smith testified that PMA would support larger Congressional appropriations for F and DA but he doubted any enthusiasm for continuous drug inspection comparable to the rigorous inspection of meat at packing houses.

    But one point – I was led to believe that the UK’s “back to school” had seen over a 100 kids die of covid.

    Really. Let’s see what that notorious COVID-denialist, 5G conspiracy website Nature has to say about this issue:

    https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-01897-w

    Deaths from COVID ‘incredibly rare’ among children

    A comprehensive analysis of hospital admissions and reported deaths across England suggests that COVID-19 carries a lower risk of dying or requiring intensive care among children and young people than was previously thought.

    In a series of preprints published on medRxiv1–3, a team of researchers picked through all hospital admissions and deaths reported for people younger than 18 in England. The studies found that COVID-19 caused 25 deaths in that age group between March 2020 and February 2021.

    About half of those deaths were in individuals with an underlying complex disability with high health-care needs, such as tube feeding or assistance with breathing.

    The infection-fatality rate for COVID in patients <18 years old was a whopping 0.005% — clearly the Black Plague redux. For context, it’s useful to compare this to previous data on influenza deaths in children — or even to varicella (chicken pox) deaths. Did I mention pediatric all-cause mortality in the UK dropped significantly during the first year of the deadly plague? Going from 25 deaths in the first year to “over a hundred” in a couple of months seems… highly improbable.

    The “hundreds of British kids felled by the deadly Rona!” narrative is out there — typically in articles like this one, which is essentially a strung-together series of quotes from random people histrionically bleating about kids supposedly dropping like flies, but lacks even a single verifiable source for any of the numbers which it seems to spit out at random.

    The citizens in Switzerland, in their direct democracy model, have forced a referendum on “vaccine passports”

    Not only “vaccine passports.” The referendum was ‘lost,’ in that the ‘yes’ vote = 62% [the vax-rate = 65%], so the vaxxed have now ensured ‘hard times’ for the unvaxxed = a massive ‘bully operation’ can now get underway. The “vaccine passports” form a mechanism of 1984-like EID [= Electronic ID] control, and since the QR-code checker apps communicate with a govt. database, the govt. now will know where every person is, when each such person ‘checks in’; we’ll have to wait to see just how far the Swiss-regime goes vis-à-vis oppression of the said unvaxxed [who cannoi get ‘Zertifikats’].

    A big part in the campaign was played by the wicked assertion: “It’s a pandemic of the unvaxxed!” – and similar such, heard across country-boundaries.

    The Swiss-regime may next try ‘mandatory vaxxing,’ which would be a violation of the Nuremberg principles – but they just got 62% ‘approval’ for ‘stricter measures!’

    Nobody else. This guy (Trump) gets it (true-westernism).

    So what you gonna do W? You better than Trump? Can you call a spade a spade, like Trump did in that speech, in a convincing fashion, like Trump? Why not run for the presidency yourself then? If you aren’t going to do that ….. look around then, …. who has got MAGA’s back? Anybody? Maybe Ron DeStantis? MAGA is what is important. If someone can do it better than Trump, then, yes, he should get out of the way. Not convinced there actually is a proven alternate political personality, with any kind of chance, out there, like that, though (but I am watching Ron DeSantis, …. and I have always liked Tulsi Gabbard, pushing back on the other side of the uni-party, too). And to Trump’s credit he won’t let up on demanding Arizona election decertification, …. and much deeper audits on the other 5 states where very wonky things, election-wise, very obviously happened, that by criminal-intent, swung the overall results. Trump must not let up on that because this type of election shenanigans will just keep happening until there is massive punishment for the cheating.

    1st, sorry; cannoi = cannot, but 2nd, wrong; the Swiss ‘Zertifikat’ system is 3G = [in corrected order] Genesen, Geimpft oder Getestet = ‘recovered, vaxxed or tested,’ but kindly note that any test is only valid for 2-3 days; at a current charge of ~SFR40 each test = makes going out to any ‘controlled’ event more than usually extra-expensive.

    Then, for some odd reason unknown to me, the referendum was posed in the opposite sense to the 200,000 signatories, who were objecting to a previously perceived injustice; the referendum was phrased as *for* the objected-to measures, ‘sweetened’ by offered bribes, then backed by business and most political parties. And, as mentioned, ‘supported’ by [lying?] propaganda. Hardly a democratic process but worse, by backing this IMHO pro-vax *scam*, the Swiss have apparently at least partly killed off their 700+ year tradition of “Ds Rütli und d’Freiheit und d’Demokratie” [try Mani Matter – Dynamit].

    Musing: Given that mRNA vaxxes are ‘questionable’ to say the least, I find it odd that that vaxxing is the only ‘pushed’ option. Given that the Swiss vax-rate is about the same as Japan’s, why it that the Japanese rate of infection is approaching zero, while the Swiss rate of infection is zoomimg up?

    The question you have to ask is, are they stupid, or are they evil? (Well, I think they are both).

    Everything that was done to “stop COVID”, from lockdowns to social distancing to vaccination, has been a complete failure. And yet they keep doing the same thing over and over again. Even some idiot commenters here (i.e. Peter Akuleyev) promote the same tired lines.

    Germany is in its fourth or fifth general lockdown, and that with 80% of vaxxed or so. Effect is zero.

    Since all attempts fail, and yet they keep being tried in the same way, that leads us to an inescapable conclusion: they don’t really want to end the pandemic. The fake “cure for the pandemic” is the real objective. It actually perpetuates the pandemic, and, for them, that’s good.

    Vaccine passports, tracking and lockdowns are and were the real objective of the Covid operation. Since “vaccine passports” do nothing to stop any pandemic, the fact that they keep being pushed nevertheless EVERYWHERE is the that that’s what they want, regardless of its effects.

    The vaccine itself, since it doesn’t stop spread and needs to be renewed every six months or so, is only understood as a device to institute such passports on a global scale. Because, as a cure to a disease, they are useless or worse than useless. (That so many people think that a vaccine that needs to be taken every six months, perhaps coinciding with flu season, and doesn’t even stop spread, somehow “works”, is a mystery).

    It’s not so much that “the virus was created for the vaccine”, and the “vaccine passports were created to push the vaccine”. It’s the opposite, “the vaccine was created to push vaccine passports”.

    And it isn’t going to be just about “Covid” either. Once an idea is imprinted in people’s mind, and a certain behaviour is learned, then it’s going to be there forever. We are all Pavlov’s dogs.

    Yes; ’der, they didn’t think’, but the bogans have a sort of an ‘excuse’, that being the nature and content of the ‘excitation.’

    This has ramifications for this article and much wider.

    To make a rather long-story two-words short: Operation Mockingbird.

    Almost across ‘the West,’ the only ‘solution’ on offer to the SARS-CoV-2 scam is to vax all, usually with the suspect, ‘experimental’ mRNA. The so-called leaders and the corrupt&venal MSM+PFBCs are all on the same ‘page.’ To achieve that, there must be some broad-based collusion process ‘in place’, and as the vaxxes are neither ‘safety & efficacy’ proven nor stop the spread of infection [= not an acceptable solution], all the elements of a West-wide tyrannical conspiracy *against us, we the people* are present. rgds

    I am fine with fat people dying to be honest. From my POV the virus is doing a decent job cleaning out some of the dead wood in the population. In Russia they now estimate pension expense is going to be reduced by 7% over the next decade due to the number of old people that COVID has taken off the books. The number one reason to oppose vaccines is because vaccines work.

    I assume you are an African? Probably from Mozambique judging by your grasp of the facts.

    You know that in Europe vaccine passports have existed for years, no reason to introduce COVID vaccines if that were the rationale. The COVID passes provide no data that hasn’t already been readily available for decades.

    Germany has nowhere near 80% vaxxed, especially in Eastern Germany. Otoh, Sweden and Denmark do have over 80% adults vaccinated, and they aren’t locking down.

    I agree Germany’s lockdown is stupid – it is entirely for the benefit of unvaxxed people whom the doctors are too soft-hearted to let die. It is also, unfortunately, also for the benefit of the immigrant populations who are usually too stupid to get vaccinated, get very sick and now German citizens are forced to sit at home to protect idiot Syrians, Serbs and Turks. Sweden, again, is better on this count.

    Haw. You appear to be totally ignorant of how your so-called “COVID passes” are being implemented, which is a 3-part process; 1) a person needs to be formally ‘qualified,’ usually = a) via the country’s vax-records, b) proof of infection [PCR-test documentation, but in some jurisdictions now antibody-test documentation], or c) an ‘up your nose’ [ouch!] test, max 48 or sometimes 72 hours ‘young.’ Then 2) the end-result is a QR-code, usually stored within the mark’s ‘smart’ phone. The bogans with such rush up to ‘control-points’ with their phones thrust out, whereupon 3) the sub-contract-hire ‘controller person’ [any of ‘normals’ or LGBTIQA+ ‘oddities,’ take your pick] scans the QR using his/her/its smart-phone, which ‘validates’ the result [or not] via a wireless query to a regime-maintained database.

    1984, pure. *They* then know who you are, where you are and when. Then, the ‘authorities’ may ‘up the ante’ to 2G, or 2G+, or whatever, and not just for entry to restaurants etc. = entertainment events, but to include supermarkets [food denied = starve to death], chemist-shops [medicine denied = get sicker, possibly die], petrol-stations and/or public transport [mobility denied] and banks [\$s denied]. All of the preceding now *formally* approved by the CH-referendum this past w/e, coming to most/all ‘Western’ jurisdictions, just as soon as the tyrant rulers can manage it.

    Ignore him, like I do. This Peter guy is a troll and a liar. “Vaccine passports” as conceived today have never existed in Europe. At most, some countries would exceptionally require proof of vaccination when you entered the country (and even that was rare, unless you came from some country in Asia or Africa that was a hotbed for malaria or something, but even if you came from South America nothing was asked).

    Vaccination status was never required for anyone including citizens any time you just wanted to have an espresso somewhere.

    “Already, our lives are mostly virtual. We’ve been eased, all along, into lockdown, but life, all of it, must be reclaimed.”

    The democratic state(s) and the corporations (who got rich from democratic materialism) have seized control. De democratic state(s) are hyper mega governing systems created by the democratic people themselves. These mega control states are the product of a long term democratic process of empowering of the state, producing a thousand little dictators, armies of bureaucrats, tons and tons of laws and regulations for over a century etc..
    Building institutions and organizations is also an obsession of democratic people. The power of the media is also a product of the democratic states.
    Hence, democracy has produces several monsters, the mega large states, the power of the commercial class (corporations) (democratic and historically unprecedented materialism), the monster called democratic media, and the web and hierarchy of controlling institutions.
    In order to regain freedom (not the alleged pre-corona freedom, which was not freedom) one needs to destroy the monsters created and or allowed to grow out of proportion by democracy itself.

    Since about 98 percent of the opposition to the situation (lockdowns, etc) are democratic propagandists who only put the blame on elites and corporations, never touching their holiest of holiest democracy, there is little to cooperate with.

    It’s hard to be amputated from your portable porn theater, vanity broadcast and selfie camera, I know.

    It is a very stupid thing to address the comfort zombies of a collectivist democracy. In fact, an offence of the readers. Perhaps Lin thought if fit in a moment of frustration to address those whose name is Legion.. to intelligently sway them to his side…

    The first thing which needs to be done is to become aware that our democratic systems are not about freedom, that they never were about freedom, start to think about what freedom really is. Become aware what a ghastly mob rule system democracy really is.

    The most salient feature of totalitarianism is control of movement

    In the Western world there are no totalitarian forces at work as in the usual meaning, there are no special lone genius demagogue-dictators and totalitarian groups behind the situation. There are egomaniacs, corrupt elites and the puppets of continuous disruption (woke), that is all. The totalitarianism at hand is democratic totalitarian mob rule guided by a plutocracy, with the cooperation of the large democratic states and the lower democratic institutions.
    Since a democracy breeds only mediocrity, it is not even fertile ground for lone totalitarian geniuses. Hence, we have only incompetence, widespread corruption, imbecility, (democratic) collectivist uniformity (which is the real ‘dictator’), and egomaniacs of a lesser nature.

    The most salient thing is the absence of anything above the mediocre, the most salient thing is that it is a collectivist self-induced mediocre mob rule totalitarianism (which needs just a little push from above). Democracy on the long run works at the ultimate death of the individual, the death of the authentic, the original, during a long period of individual-killing asphyxiating democratic collectivism.

    People like Lin Dinh are applying the recent past to the present, they are clueless in the sense that they can only interpret what is happening through very recent history.

    Note that most of the alternative reporters (like on UNZ and elsewhere) are mostly from the generation who never read a book which was written before the 20th century, and if they read older material, they mostly think they know things better. They are part of the mediocrity, they are heavily influenced by the 20th century Western propaganda machine, if not products of it.

    They ‘allegedly’ work in reducing hospitalisation and death, so the known, recidivist, liars, tell us. But in preventing infection and transmission, they fail Big Time, and their efficacy falls rapidly and precipitously. And they have caused more vaccine adverse events than ALL other vaccines ever utilised, combined. And the adverse events will quite probably increase with time, and ever more ‘boosters’.

  223. @animalogic

    Your BMJ link is to an editorial, not a scientific paper. It’s important to understand the difference. Compare to this, or this, or this — all are similar pieces editorializing in support of regime-mandated, intrinsically-unfalsifiable political positions, rather than engaging in anything resembling science.

    That BMJ editorial does precisely jack shit to refute the facts cited in the original paper — it just whines that they’re “bad for the narrative” and should therefore be suppressed because they might lead to “too little” fear and hysteria among the population. In the course of shrieking “Those kids are all gonna die if they don’t get quadruple-vaxxed RIGHT NOW!” they mention in passing the number of previously-healthy children who died from COVID in the entire first year of the lethal scourge… SIX. Does that stop them? Of course not. They just keep on keepin’ on. The Narrative says “lethal” — they‘re gonna say “lethal.” Facts? What are those?

    The ONS says that there had been 68 covid-19 deaths in 0-19 year olds in England and Wales up to the end of October.

    The CDC says you’re lying. See how naked assertions work? Surely you’re capable of linking to an actual source for this claim.

    Let’s assume for the sake of argument that number is official. The problem is that the “COVID deaths” category is actually a “number of deaths of people who had had a positive test result for COVID-19 and either died within 60 days of the first positive test or have COVID-19 mentioned on their death certificate” {exact quote taken from the UK Health Security Agency). So if a kid tests positive for COVID via PCR, has the sniffles and a bit of a cough for three days… and dies in a car accident 2 months later, that goes straight into the so-called “COVID-19 deaths” column. Them’s the rules — it’s right there in black and white. And given that COVID-19 is both:
    1. A very common condition, and
    2. Nowhere near a leading cause of death in kids
    this happens a lot.

    The importance of this paper is that it actually makes some effort to distinguish between “of COVID” and “with COVID” — rather than just counting up positive PCR tests in kids who died from any cause, they actually reviewed the individual cases to evaluate whether the deadly plague was a significant contributing factor. As far as I know, no one in the US has even tried to do this with American data, so ya gotta give some credit to the Brits for that.

    …of 12,023,568 CYP living in England, 3,105 died, including 61 who were positive for SARS-CoV-2. Of these deaths, 25 were due to SARS-CoV-2 infection (mortality rate, two per million), including 22 due to coronavirus disease 2019—the clinical disease associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection—and 3 were due to pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome temporally associated with SARS-CoV-2.

    Once again — an infection fatality rate of 0.005% — and a population-wide disease-specific mortality rate of 2 per million. Literally the return of the Black Plague, goy. It’s like, obvious.

    …the number of deaths in children has vastly increased in the past few months since the spread of the delta variant

    You’re behind the curve on this one — they’ve moved on already from t̶h̶e̶ ̶l̶a̶s̶t̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶ the last 5 times they trumpeted a putative “new, improved, vastly more virulent” variant. Now it’s “the latest Omega Prime variant is at least 10 times as lethal as the old kind!”

    It’s more of a recursive rhetorical technique than an actual argument. Also, while the published data does seem to indicate enhanced infectiousness/ transmissibility for the delta version; the data supporting enhanced delta lethality is crap. Look it up.

    *For comparison, out of the 25 deaths caused by COVID in 0-17 year olds that first year, 13 had an accompanying “neurodisability.” That means epilepsy, or maybe Down’s syndrome, right? Nope — zero deaths in kids with those — or similar — conditions. “All 13 CYP[children and young people] who died of SARS-COV-2 with a neurological comorbidity had a complex neurodisability due to a combination of an underlying genetic or metabolic condition, hypoxic ischemic events or prematurity.” Translation: these are kids that don’t walk, don’t talk, and are mostly fed via tubes in their stomachs [see also “life-limiting neurodisability” and “home respiratory support”]. And even that group, COVID-19 accounted for a small fraction of total mortality.

    Thanks. The blind insistence on vaccinating kids and pregnant women strikes me as particularly evil. It should be obvious (but apparently isn’t) that part of basic risk/ benefit analysis for something like this is the principle that it’s very difficult to “cure” a healthy person.

    If you’re planning to use a drug (or any other intervention) to treat someone who just suffered a cardiac arrest, then significant — even major — side effects may be a worthwhile tradeoff for any significantly-increased chance of getting them back. If you’re planning to “treat” an entire population of healthy people for a disease that they don’t have, which they may never get, and which has a very low chance of mortality/ serious morbidity in those kids that do get it… you’d better be damn sure that your treatment is safe, because there isn’t a whole lot of potential benefit to balance out any risk.

    Another trick that you see a lot is the insistence on quoting the case fatality rate (chance of death for those with the disease — 0.005% for age 0-17 according to the English data) rather than the population level mortality rate (2 per million). They’ll insist that it’s somehow “not fair” to look at deaths/ total pediatric population, because not everyone gets the disease. Yeah, except that who are you planning to give the vax to again? That’s right — the entire population, not just the kids that you think will get it that year. So for looking at risk/ benefit of COVID vs. vax, population-level mortality absolutely is the appropriate comparator.
