As of a few years ago, Glenn Greenwald was probably the most famous journalist in the world. And actually, given the striking decline in that mainstream profession, he might still be so today, since few other obvious names come to mind.

Meanwhile, I’d never heard of Dan Bongino until I read something about him in the New York Times earlier this year. Apparently, he’s a former Secret Service agent and right-wing pro-Trump pundit, with a strong following on the Internet.

But both these individuals were prominently mentioned in a March Times article on the rise of Rumble, a rapidly-growing video platform competing with Youtube.

Capitalizing on its relative lack of censorship, Rumble has become popular among the sorts of content-creators whose views have earned them strikes or shadow-bans on Youtube, or fear that would happen in the future. Such a group obviously leans heavily to the pro-Trump right, but not exclusively so. Indeed, the Times highlighted Greenwald’s official partnership with Rumble, a partnership that recently led him to announce plans for a one-hour nightly news program.

Meanwhile, according to the Times, Bongino had gained national stature as the host who had replaced Rush Limbaugh in some radio markets. After suffering from Youtube restrictions during the fall of 2020, he had shifted to Rumble, even taking an equity stake in that company. As of March, he’d accumulated more than 2 million subscribers on that platform and was streaming his live daily show, apparently becoming Rumble’s top broadcast star.

According to a follow-up Times article from last week, other developments may soon further bolster Rumble’s position. Earlier this year, Donald Trump had launched his own social network, Truth Social, but it has encountered a long series of severe business problems, and therefore has a clouded future. Although the Times obviously hates Trump with a vengeance and wishes him ill, the objective facts they cite do seem considerable, including the angry departure of various executives and ongoing federal investigations that putt his planned financing at risk.

So if these problems persist and Trump can’t obtain his funding, a possible solution might be to merge his company with Rumble, which already shares many of the same ideological supporters. Indeed, the Times story even claims that half the people currently working at Trump’s Internet company are actually Rumble employees, who handle his back office operation. Although the traffic to Trump’s network dwarfs that of its other alternative social network competitors such as Gab or Parler, those monthly numbers are less than one-tenth Rumble’s total, and apparently have been stagnating during most of this past year. Meanwhile, Rumble has been rapidly growing, more than doubling its monthly visits since March. So a merger with Rumble would certainly create the leading alternative media challenger to the established Tech giants.

Yet despite Rumble’s recent growth, its viewership is still merely a tiny sliver of that possessed by its giant video rival. According to SimilarWeb, Rumble had around 100 million visits in August, while Youtube had 33 billion, a figure more than 300 times larger. Given such a vastly larger potential audience, its easy to understand why Youtube remains the home of Max Blumenthal’s Grayzone and why Tulsi Gabbard selected it as the primary location of the new video channel that she recently established.

However, content-creators remain fearful of dreaded Youtube Strikes, and are sometimes cautious about what they will display on that platform. For example, Gabbard recently had a long and important interview with Prof. Jeffrey Sachs on the serious risks of World War III, yet she only chose to release it on her Rumble channel, perhaps fearing a dreaded Youtube strike. The video attracted well over 100,000 views there, but if not shadow-banned might surely have attained an enormously larger audience on Youtube.

My own experience with Rumble has certainly been very favorable. Earlier this year, I did several lengthy podcast interviews presenting my case that the global Covid epidemic was the result of an American biowarfare attack against China (and Iran), and I’ve regularly promoted and highlighted these in my subsequent articles and columns. But although they were released on a variety of different video platforms, only their performance on Rumble has made waves. For example, my hour-long Geopolitics & Empire video has attracted nearly 600,000 views on Rumble, but only 9,000 on Youtube, presumably due to shadow-banning. A couple of my other podcasts have done even better on Rumble, with my two hour Red Ice TV interview reaching 650,000 views and the much shorter “Smoking Gun” presentation with Kevin Barrett breaking 850,000 views.

Although these latter numbers might seem impressive on Youtube, given Rumble’s much smaller potential audience, I consider them truly astonishing in that venue. For example, Dan Bongino’s top-rated Rumble channel contains hundreds of his videos, but only a half-dozen of these have broken 600,000 views, and the same is true for Glenn Greenwald’s channel, while only two of Rand Paul’s videos have reached that mark. After Alex Jones was driven from Youtube, he also moved to Rumble, but only one of his many hundreds of videos has even broken 100,000 views, and except for RT‘s ongoing livestream, only a handful of its huge number of Rumble videos have reached the 100,000 view mark.

Obviously, this comparison is hardly a fair one since my viewership represents the sustained, accumulated interest on a single issue, while a pundit like Bongino mines the news headlines for a different topical story every day or two. But on the other hand, his video channel obviously benefits from his nationwide radio broadcast audience, while Glenn Greenwald’s regular appearances on the Tucker Carlson show provides a similar boost.

By contrast, for over two years I have stood almost alone on the Internet in pointing to the obvious evidence that more than a million Americans probably died from the blowback of a biowarfare attack by elements of their own government, a prospect so unspeakably horrifying that virtually no one else has been willing to acknowledge it as a mere possibility, let alone seriously discuss the evidence. But although it’s been nearly impossible to find others even willing to mention my hypothesis, my podcast video interviews have now attracted nearly 2.2 million views, so at least a few people somewhere do seem to be watching them.

Solid estimates are difficult to make, but based upon the viewership of the videos on those highest-profile Rumble channels mentioned above, I’d guess that my interviews have become more popular than 99.9% of the other videos on Rumble, with the true figure quite possibly being as high as 99.99% or even 99.999%. There are obvious benefits in saying important things that others won’t touch, even if those presentations can only be done on a video platform possessing merely a sliver of Youtube’s global reach.

I’d like to think that at some point, the crucial facts that I’ve been presenting will finally break though into a broader audience and at least force the journalists of the alternative media to take notice and discuss them even if they remain forbidden within mainstream circles.

I keep in mind the example of Prof. John Mearsheimer’s prescient hour-long lecture on the dangers of a Ukraine war. His video languished for six or seven years on Youtube before it suddenly exploded into worldwide attention in February, with its 28 million views having now probably set an all-time record for any academic presentation on the Internet. As an obvious consequence of that popular breakthrough, the ultra-establishmentarian Foreign Affairs recently solicited a lengthy article from him, as did the front page of the Wall Street Journal‘s weekly Review section. So despite suffering from a near-total media blackout for well over two years, I’d still like to remain hopeful.

Later this month marks the tenth anniversary of my major article “The Myth of American Meritocracy.” By providing very strong evidence of the existence of Asian Quotas in the Ivy League, my analysis played an important role in launching the Harvard admissions lawsuit now before the Supreme Court. If as many believe, the justices will soon strike down the constitutionality of Affirmative Action after more than four decades, I’ll be very pleased with the result. But ten years is a long time to wait, and I do hope my Covid/Biowarfare analysis gains greater traction much more quickly than that.

Meanwhile, I continue my efforts. My Covid/Biowarfare EBook has been downloaded over 13,000 times and my individual articles have accumulated more than 900,000 pageviews on the Internet. And if anyone would like to see the three videos that have now broken two million total views on Rumble, they’re easily at your fingertips.

    Truth-tellers on forums like YouTube have to be like ambassadors, aware of how much truth the audience can bear, and when they can bear it. Aaron Mate who is in the same category as Greenwald — truth telling classical liberal— freely admitted he sometimes does not say all he could or would like to say, lest he lose the platform for saying too much.

    Much of the harshest critics, yelling “sell-out” or “limited hangout” have the freedom to say whatever they want because (1) not many people listen to what they’re saying anyway, so they can get away with a lot (2) they aren’t supporting their own growing families with their “wordsmithing.”

    I agree absolutely. I never listened to Limbaugh’s show in my entire life and the only time I’ve watched FoxNews is when one of Tucker Carlson’s more important shows is up on Youtube.

    I’ve been totally disconnected from the “mainstream conservative” movement for at least a couple of decades, maybe longer.

    the merger of rumble and twitter, seems to be a match made in heaven. elon wants to turn twitter into a broader platform and this would give him a turnkey operation that would offset the advertising boycott, while reenforcing the free speech trope. this would also be advantageous to both by allowing them to take on you tube and meta, rather than each other. think “pro” wrestling, this is a tag team match, classic good guys vs. bad guys. zukerburg will pull a can opener out of his boot and rake elon across the eyes, while you tube distracts the referee, who sees nothing, as the crowd roars in indignation. cheat as they may, the bad guys are eventually defeated by our heros and guess who manages team good guy? that’s right, donald trump, who then shaves the head of the head of the manager of team bad guy, joe biden. trump then triumphantly picks up the fallen locks, holds them to his nose and inhales deeply. there can only be one.

    It would be interesting to compare only political commentary view numbers on Youtube with those on Rumble(and Bitchute).

    The main reason for Youtube’s staggering number of visits has mostly to do with cat videos, music videos, cooking videos, etc., none of which are ideological. Some cat videos have 500 million views.
    So, most of what is seen on youtube has zero political content and influence, whereas a good percentage of material on the other sites have significant political content.

    I don’t rely on youtube for political commentary but I do still watch music and how-to stuff there, even some cat and animal videos and travelogues.

    Even though Youtube still leads in political commentary videos, they have been greatly diminished since 2016 due to censorship.

    That’s a good point. But I’d still guess that even if we restrict ourselves to political/substantive video content, Youtube still has a vastly larger audience, maybe 30-to-1 over Rumble instead of 300-to-1.

    For example, just a couple of weeks ago I stumbled across a couple of Amy Goodman interviews on Youtube with Jeffrey Sachs and Alfred McCoy, each at around two million views. On Youtube, that’s sizable, but nothing astonishing, so I’d never even come across them earlier. But on all of Rumble, I think there might only be a handful of videos above two million views.

    All Big Tech platforms are hopelessly tainted and compromised by malicious censorship.

    Evidently Rumble shares something in common with unz.com — namely, airing non-mainstream views without heavy-handed, insidious cancellation.

    Carry on, Rumble and Ron Unz. It’s entirely obvious, as Ron Unz asserts, that the covid virus was lab-created. It’s equally obvious that the mRNA ‘vaccines’ — an integral adjunct of the same depraved, misanthropic project — are the most lethal medication ever approved for human use.

    Youtube was never meant to be political or have anything to do with political issues. It was founded and created originally with the sole purpose of sharing birthday videos. The two co-founders had a birthday party for their children and took videos and wanted to share it with all the guests and realized at the time, there wasn’t an easy way for video sharing so they designed one from scratch and that’s how Youtube was founded. Since it has such an easy interface and design, it caught on quickly, gained massive followers and people then started uploading all types of videos (anything and everything).

  13. Just as Rumble is the most popular free speech alternative to YouTube, Substack is the leading free speech alternative to Patreon.

    During the 15 months since Patreon nuked my account it has lost over 70% of its value. https://simonowens.substack.com/p/why-patreon-is-struggling Meanwhile Substack is thriving.

    Now that YouTube has also nuked my account, I hope that 15 months from now it too will be cratering ; – ) By then my “COVID-19 Smoking Gun” Rumble interview with Ron should have well over a million views.

    God willing we will outlast the censors and dance on their graves.

  17. You Tube has been around for a bunch of while Rumble is nearly fresh outta the oven. The initiating premises are dissimilar. Those in search of substantive matters will over time gravitate to Rumble and to Substack.

    Unz Review is in a unique position of maintaining a steady platform for a kaleidoscopic panorama of viewpoints, ranging from knuckle draggers to some of the most astute and erudite commentators on the course of human events. Thank you, Ron Unz, for this amazing opportunity to let it all hang out.

    A generalized awakening is occurring, but has not yet reached the masses. No matter. Creativity and critical thinking are not produced or even conceptualized by those folks whose primary instincts are to herd up, being still psychologically and emotionally dominated by fear.

    The elementary struggle today is to segue into a new Aquarian Age without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. The universality of love is, like water, a universal solvent. Let it be.

    Rome was not built in a day. That old adage seems quite applicable to this situation. Freedom of thought and of expression is a force which ultimately cannot be repressed and contained. Those who diligently engage in transmutation of human consciousness are blessings for humanity.

    Youtube can censor all political content and still thrive because people go there for entertainment and funny stuff.

    Take this video. It was released only 2 weeks ago and just shows a kitten with duckling. It got over a million views already. People eat this stuff up.

    On the matter of censorship, couldn’t one make a legal case against censorship on monopolistic platforms like Youtube, Google, Facebook, and Twitter on the basis that they became monopolies in the first place by promising to be neutral to all sides in the beginning?

    If all such companies had announced a very partisan and biased policy at the outset, they never would have become monopolies. If Twitter had said, “We intended to favor globalists and censor nationalist voices”, it never would become so big. Most on the right would have chosen something else.
    But these platforms drew people in from all sides because of the professed neutrality, and that made them monopolies. So, for them to NOW change policy and favor one side over another is utter bs.

    Youtube especially has lots of views because it’s a global platform, but that means most Americans don’t watch or care about what is posted on youtube in some other part of the world. It could be tons of stuff are uploaded onto youtube by countless people in India, but most Americans hardly see that stuff.
    And most of what is uploaded in Latin America is also ignored by most people in the US.

    Also, if Harvard can be sued because it takes government money, how come banks can deny services to certain people? If all people must pay taxes to bail out banks(like in 2008), how come banks can deny services to certain peoples? All people are forced to pay taxes to bail out banks but banks can deny you service? Sounds like utter garbage.

    That blew me away. She was grovelling just like every other politician grovels to the ADL. I mean exactly the same. “Isreal is America’s steadfast Ally.” “I suck Isreal off” kind of talk. So utterly disgusting.

    Not a single person I know (that large herd of people who superciliously consider themselves soooooo well informed because they read Guardian, NYT, FT or watch MSNBC) have ever heard of Greenwald.

    I too, consider Assange a publisher and platform manager rather than a journalist. A heroic and courageous figure but not a “direct” journalist.

    I am not sure why Ron is so convinced of this “bioweapon” theory when all the scientific evidence to date suggests that scientists have NO CLUE how to “release” a bioweapon without killing themselves in the process. I don’t doubt that the US would love to release a “bioweapon” on China and Iran….if only they knew how. Look at the enormous challenges faced in simply culturing and analyzing viral pathogens. In conducting experiements without contaminating the results. If you want to propose a “bioweapon”, you need to explain EXACTLY what the release mechanism is.

    Pour a vial into bowl of batsoup?
    Go around injecting patients who are already in a hospital in Wuhan?

    Thousands of accidents have happened in biolabs, researchers have fallen ill on occasion but pandemics have never been let loose.

    Iran is a country under heavy sanctions. A bad flu season could throw their healthcare system into chaos and Western media would make up the balance. Meanwhile, China had almost no covid deaths beyond the first three weeks when there may have been some exccess mortality created through panic and chaos in hospitals.

    Most people seem to have forgotten that the Chinese government in trying to downplay the “new” virus was hysterically accused by Western media of “covering up”. All the comical pictures of people dying while walking down the street appeared in Western media not in Chinese media. Chinese doctors treated most of the patients with 6 different mixes of Chinese medicine and said let’s not panic.

    I know it’s an unpopular view (to put it mildly) but I do believe the Wuhan lockdown and the idiotic “zero covid theatre” is China’s political pantomime response to NATO to say: stop blaming us for your three years and counting pandemic narrative.

    No more than 4% of China’s population was under a strict lockdown from Jan-March 2020. They have never had a national vax pass or mandates. Their QR code system in early 2020 was mostly a self report. The newer one is based on non-invasive saliva testing unlike the nasal rape that still continues in most of Western Europe.
    The Shanghai lockdowns get undue press coverage but in reality it’s a tiny sliver of localized lockodowns. I think it’s China’s way of saying: look if you’re going to insist on this farce, we’ll do it our way.

    The bioweapon theory gives legitimacy to the idea that covid is somehow different from flu, pneumonia, ARDS and sepsis which have always existed.

    Anyone who knows anything about genome sequencing knows that the epitopes of the so called “new” virus are exactly the same as any old coronavirus.

    I think Ron is most effective when he sticks to topics he knows about. You can ‘t have an informed opinion on sars-cov-2 without doing a deep dive into the genome papers and phylogenetics on one hand the statistical and research methods underlying the clinical data on the other.

  28. Although the Times obviously hates Trump with a vengeance and wishes him ill

    Perhaps further evidence that “newspapers” are dangerous to mental processes.

    For years I read a “responsible” paper (UK Telegraph) most days, a habit broken by my going to work in Asia. Read it on occasional visits back to London and found self questioning the assumptions implicit in the articles, as well as standards of strict and impartial truth.
    Cutting the story short, this news medium lost credibility with me.
    Followed by basically the entire msm, including TV.
    Still my position approx two decades later.

    I suppose you are adopting the American meaning of liberal (roughly synonymous to “progressive”) when you call Greenwald a “classical liberal”, rather than the 18th-century school of thought (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_liberalism). That distinction is in any case irrelevant here since it is not clear Greenwald is either.

    This is nice and all, but as most readers of UNZ and other fora know, the ‘average’ American has no more than a fifth-grade reading level, the attention span of a second grader, and the morals of a gay disco (if Trannie story hours are any indication).

    What the future leaders of this post-Bidenpocalype ‘nation’ need to do is to restore hierarchy, ‘knowing one’s place’ and finding the aristos who possess both morality AND intelligence, to lead as the kings of Europe did of old.

    Oh, yes, the malcontents, the Jews, the merely antinomian, and the anarchist all will shrilly denounce such ‘evils’… but, just like Kathy Griffin getting purged from Twitter, someone has to do the job lazy Anglos won’t do.

    I propose a return to patriarchy, Theonomy, and a White America, somewhere reminiscent of, oh, 1912. Women should be silent, rescind their voting rights, make certain ummm, hominids 3/5ths of a person again, or remove them back to Africa. The usual. It’s not that that has failed…. It was never tried.

  37. In France, Rumble has refused to yield to the French government demand to censor Russia Today, and has therefore been blocked. On all the videos embedded in Ron’s article above, only appears the following message:

    NOTICE TO USERS IN FRANCE
    Because of French government demands to remove creators from our platform, Rumble is currently unavailable in France. We are challenging these government demands and hope to restore access soon.

    By contrast, Odysee has accepted the French dictat and is still on.

    Hence if informative content is important then U-Tube is shite. However one must remember that the other sites and “Hosts” are not necesarily in it to correctly and accurately inform you. They are in it to make money and to serve their own interests. So, from time to time one tunes into a video on Rumble that is such nonsense that after a minute its tune out time.

    People need to THINK for themselves. The majority cannot, others will not and some have no time. The result is a vast pool of dunces ripe for misinformation and manipulation.

    As for nuclear war I doubt it will come to that. If it does then so be, lets get it over and done with. Personally I am sick and tired of the endless related commentary and repetitive opinion floggers. Like Covid, the whole notion has become dreadfully boring and will most likely turn out to be nothing.

    I don’t recall reading that you have been banned by YouTube. Is there a reason for your not using it as a preferred medium?

    When I did those February podcast interviews, the Geopolitics & Empire one was put on Youtube while the other two went on Rumble. They all seemed roughly comparable in quality and I promoted them equally in my columns. After a month or so, the Youtube one had gotten a few thousand views, while other two, which were produced later, had each broken 100K views. That empirically led me to suspect that there was some sort of shadow-banning process at work on Youtube.

    So I persuaded the G&E podcaster to repost the same video on Rumble. Since then, it’s gotten nearly 600K views there, while the Youtube version is still only up to 9K views. It seems clear that Youtube is hindering the propagation of the sorts of videos it doesn’t like. Plus Youtube creators have to be very careful in what they say lest they get a Strike or even have their entire channel disappeared.

    CIA can’t keep the lid on 70 years of impunity and escalating crime accumulating in universal jurisdiction with no statute of limitations. CIA’s apical coup in furtherance of crimes against peace won’t go away:

    https://markcrispinmiller.substack.com/p/what-we-might-learn-about-this-next

    The US subject population now understands their contemporary history: CIA impunity produced a criminal enterprise with life-and-death arbitrary power that put it in command. CIA repression becomes increasingly totalitarian but the regime’s strict hierarchy makes it unstable, weak, and easy to decapitate. To permit states of emergency that entrench its lawless power CIA stokes illegal great-power confrontation, holding the US population hostage to genocidal risks:

    https://sgs.princeton.edu/the-lab/plan-a

    CIA responds to public international exposure by intensifying its crimes, to assert its power and discredit rule of law as ineffective. Gina caught her tit in the crimes-against-humanity wringer with systematic and widespread torture. So Beth Kimber planned and executed undeclared war with banned biological weapons and caught her tit in the crimes-against-peace wringer. CIA use of the most indscriminate WMDs drove Avril to systematic and widespread medical experimentation under ulterior constraint and coercion, to sabotage amounting to extermination, and to the crime of aggression, so she catches a tit in each wringer. These three CIA spokesmodels are hostis humani generis.

    CIA’s medical experimentation and banned biological weapons use now justifies nuclear war in the historical precedent of jus ad bello. The aggrieved parties of this CIA crime include every UN member nation, but the targets of CIA’s undeclared sneak attacks are allied nuclear-armed great powers with qualitatively superior strategic forces. At this point the CIA regime will either blow up the world or be dismantled, tried and made to pay for history’s gravest crimes.

    when all the scientific evidence to date suggests that scientists have NO CLUE how to “release” a bioweapon without killing themselves in the process.

    Which reminds me of when I was living in the Islands. Two neighbours had a disagreement over a squash vine growing on a fence. One got weed killer and sprayed the plant turning the whole fence from green to brown. The other guy climbed into the sprayers yard at night with a machete and hacked down his gooseberry and guava trees.

    The first guy, in a towering rage, waited until the wind was blowing toward his neighbours house, filled his metal rubbish bin with wood, lit it on fire, dumped a pile of green grass onto the flames and watched gleefully as the smoke rolled into his opponents house. He even threatened to burn the house down next. As the fire died down he added more grass and dumped a bucket of gasoline into the bin. For some reason at that point a gust of wind blew in his direction. There was a roar as the the flames erupted from the bin and a scream as his clothes caught on fire. His nylon shirt stuck to him as it burned and he got barbecued.

    Some tools and materials should be left alone and some disputes ignored. Which brings me to Covid as an international example. Whichever country released the virus, said country also reaped the backlash. We probably will never know what really happened but what I do know is that most times bad action rebound on the perpetrator in a doubly painful way.

    Whether nukes, germ or chemical warfare, if the wind changes during or after delivery the glee of the culprits will turn into dismay as they get a dose of their own medicine.

    The piquant paradox is that even if you win you lose. What will there be left to rule and exploit ?

    9,000…600,000…850,000…2 million views…
    What this popularity contest measures is eyes on the screen. “Views” includes any clicking on a link whether the reader only glances at the title and reads (or not) at least the opening paragraph. This emphasize the importance of the title, which according to some must be “intriguing” and explicit but short.
    In the early 60s (before internet) a clever Jewish chemist and linguist in Philadelphia invented a system for measuring eyes on the page to quantify the “popularity” of scientific papers, at first in his own domain, chemistry, and soon in all sciences. It was called the Science Citation Index (SCI). It fell short of Vannevar Bush’s 1945 vision, which anticipated the information society, insofar as Bush (whom Garfield never cited or mentioned as his inspiration) wanted to construct a system that not only organized and systematized all information in a given domain but then decanted it down to the “knowledge” contained therein.

    [MORE]

    Garfield’s SCI revolutionized the way of measuring a scientific paper’s, a journal’s, and even an individual author’s place in the hierarchy of citations, using such criteria he set up as “total number of citations,” “impact factor,” “immediacy index,” etc.
    Soon the race was on for authors to raise their own citation index by hook or by crook (e.g., self-citation in “salami publications”).
    The SCI impact factor measures how many times a work has been cited over the past two years since publication. Applying it to Ron Unz’s articles on SARS-COVID as a bioweapon used against Iran and China yields a comparatively low impact factor of “views.”
    The likelihood of the total number of citation (views) of the above-mentioned article(s) increasing over time will probably depend on:
    (1) how many times others cite them (with links); (2) how many people still consider that the virus being intentionally created (a) in a lab and (b) by the US as “news,” as opposed to taking it for granted; (3) how many Americans care more that the US intended to harm Iran and China than about the harm done intentionally or by reckless carelessness to themselves; (4) how many people consider the creation of the virus a more ominous and criminal act then the creation of the mRNA “vaccines” cum graphene oxide and their draconian imposition, rather than its declared predicate.

    Ron seems preoccupied with primacy, a demonstrable “I said it first” claim, not so much in reference to the virus being created in a US lab, but with it being a bioweapon most likely intended and used against Iran and China. The fact that this convincing hypothesis does not get very much traction (in terms of views/citations) may be due to what most people perceive as practical immediacy, for lack of a better term. Many people (in fact probably all viewers of alt media) simply assume that the country that bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima is likely to commit such atrocities again and again but do not see a practical way to put an immediate stop to it.
    They do, however, perceive an urgent, practical immediacy to stop the campaign of inoculation with the Pfizer/Moderna products.
    Perhaps when Ron sees his way clear to changing his stance on the “clot shots,” he may also include in his future articles on this massive crime against humanity some references (with links) to his hypothesis (I repeat: convincing) on the bioweapon attack against Iran and China. Then the views on those articles will increase and also solidify his primacy.
    Remember that Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid, (Watson and Crick), Nature, 737–738 (1953)1953 had few citations in the first two years and now, after it is “taken for granted, none at all. Explicit title, only one page in length, of monumental impact.
    By contrast, the most-cited paper in history is a paper by Oliver Lowry describing an assay to measure the concentration of proteins. Practical necessity.

    That’s an amusing anecdote, apart from the guy getting bbqd. But for all the people claiming a virus was “released”, please do explain STEP BY STEP how this happens. I’m guessing all advocates of the “bioweapons” theory have a strong background in Hollywood and none in virology. I repeat, there is no way to “release” a viral pathogen. It’s not like letting a mouse out of a cage and letting it rip through the population. And if there were a real bioweapon, there would have been no need for the dodgy tests, the rush to label every cancer death as “covid”, the massaging of the death statistics, the denial of treatment, the disappearance of family doctors into their basements throughout most of 2020 in all OECD countries and so on.

    That’s not true at all. The narrative around the 1918 pandemic was largely constructed at the end of the 1990s when some Swedish biologist went to Alaska and dug out a body from permafrost of somebody who was said to have died in 1918. Over the next few years, using the genome sequencing techniques that were very new and unreliable at the time, they claimed that the person had died from influenza. The whole narrative was built up around that over the following years. A lot of young men died in hospital war camps in 1918 and 1919. Infectious diseaseses of all sorts were rife among the wounded in those camps, including but not limited to acute bronchitis. Again, if you want to go on about bioweapons, explain the delivery mechanism please by providing some credible references from scientific journals. 100% of the evidence points to a planned pandemic narrative and you don’t really need a “new virus” to do that. You publish a genome sequence which is pretty damn similar to all other coronaviruses, you create a lot of panic in the population, create an unreliable test to set off the asymptomatic casedemic, label all deaths to be covid deaths….and above all DENY TIMELY TREATMENT for influenza like symptoms that aren’t resolving within a few days and need antibiotics for secondary infections or corticosteroids or heparin.

    Never in history has there ever been a pandemic in which over half of all cases in all countries are ASYMPTOMATIC and the average death rate is higher than the average life expectancy.

    You pay the professional elites a nice sum to sit at home and show up on zoom from time to time to discourage them from challenging the narrative in any way. And you release a whole whack of funds for “covid research” to distract the scientists with their own career advancement.

    Those “elite audiences that actually determine policy” are mere minions, even though they are close to the Rottenfeller shotcallers, whose ancestors created the CFR, altogether in tune with Chatham House, MI6 and those in City of London who cut the orders for those higher level minions.

    If Mearsheimer is enabled to address the CFR crowd, it says far more about the current status of the good professor, than anything he may have professed in the past. He will never go precisely “on message”, but his perspective will soon include a twist or two. In other words, I believe Mearsheimer has been “tamed”, if not completely controlled.

  95. There is probably a selective bias of people who access Rumble and other alternative sites: most of them are probably actively seeking out “alternative news” because they have had enough of (((The Narrative))).

    So despite the impressive view count of Unz’s interviews on Rumble, he is probably preaching to the choir: to those who were already looking for an escape from The Matrix (“an extended metaphor for Jewish control of American society”) in the first place. The real challenge will be to reach the stubborn ones who refuse to even consider taking a look at Rumble et al., because they know full well what they will find there: ThoughtCrime…

    Here are a few quotes from a recent Pew Research paper that corroborates these assumptions:

    [MORE]

    “Americans who have heard of these sites but do not use them as sources for news are skeptical of them. When asked for the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about alternative social media sites, people in this category commonly cite inaccuracy and misinformation, political bias and the political right, and extremism and fringe ideas.”

    “researchers conducted a survey of news consumers on seven sites: BitChute, Gab, Gettr, Parler, Rumble, Telegram and Truth Social.”

    “These sites have become a refuge for some who feel they do not have a home on the more established sites.”

    “posts about vaccines indicate a deep and consistent concern about the impact of vaccination. These posts regularly refer to a small group of influential vaccine skeptics.”

    “Other prevalent terms referenced conspiracy theories about the nefarious purposes of the COVID19 vaccines (“Bill Gates”) or the source of the COVID-19 virus itself (“Wuhan coronavirus,” “CCP [Chinese Communist Party] virus”).”

    No doubt YT gets far more views on political commentary than other video platforms. Still, Goodman is an established figure who’s been at the game for a long time. Also, the interview with Sachs was bound to get high views even for Goodman because of the controversy he stirred on Twitter.

    Most political commentary on youtube doesn’t get many views. Some have been on YT for close to a decade but still have a very limited audience. Generally, not for the good, those who get the most views tend to offer something extra, like humor or unique personality.

    Exactly! That’s actually one of the things that originally made me rather suspicious. As I explained in my original April 2020 article:

    Back in January, few Americans were paying much attention to the early reports of an unusual disease outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan, which was hardly a household name. Instead, overwhelming political attention was focused on the battle over Trump’s impeachment and the aftermath of our dangerous military confrontation with Iran. But towards the end of that month, I discovered that the fringes of the Internet were awash with claims that the disease was caused by a Chinese bioweapon accidentally released from that same Wuhan laboratory, with former Trump advisor Steve Bannon and ZeroHedge, a popular right-wing conspiracy-website, playing leading roles in advancing the theory. Indeed, the stories became so widespread in those ideological circles that Sen. Tom Cotton, a leading Republican Neocon, began promoting them on Twitter and FoxNews, thereby provoking an article in the NYT on those “fringe conspiracy theories.”

    I suspect that it may be more than purely coincidental that the biowarfare theories which erupted in such concerted fashion on small political websites and Social Media accounts back in January so closely match those now publicly advocated by top Trump Administration officials and supposedly based upon our most secure intelligence sources. Perhaps a few intrepid citizen-activists managed to replicate the findings of our multi-billion-dollar intelligence apparatus, and did so in days while the latter required weeks or months. But a more likely scenario is that the wave of January speculation was driven by private leaks and “guidance” provided by exactly the same elements that today are very publicly leveling similar charges in the elite media. Initially promoting controversial theories in less mainstream outlets has long been a fairly standard intelligence practice…

    Using alternative media to immediately promote theories that the coronavirus outbreak was the result of a leak from a Chinese biowarfare lab was a natural means of preempting any later Chinese accusations along similar lines, thereby allowing America to win the international propaganda war before China had even begun to fight.

    https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-our-coronavirus-catastrophe-as-biowarfare-blowback/

    The Chinese bioweapon claims were even promoted in January by our government propaganda-outlets such as Radio Free Asia. I discussed all these issues at much greater length here:

He told me I was visiting too many “conspiracy websites.” He mentioned about a year ago that he took the vax. At that time he had two underage daughters 17 and 13 that I assume he had the vax administered to. A few weeks ago he texted me that his oldest daughter that just started College is having some type of health problems. He said there is something wrong with her blood. I assume she had some type of health scare that prompted the doctors to administer some type of blood test. I have scant details because he lives some 1500 miles from me but I am afraid that any time I am going to get a text from him telling me his eldest daughter is dead.

    One of life’s little pleasures is telling a know it all, “I told you so.” But if his daughter dies I will of course express my sympathies. But at some point I will have to ask him if he has any idea what could have caused it. One of the things that I see in my 60’s that I didn’t see in my 20’s is the tremendous amount of denial that so many people employ in their day to day lives just so they can manage to look in the mirror. I hope I never have to have the conversation with this guy, but at the same time I suspect it is in our future. At some point I am going to ask him why he would trust the opinion of some cunt on tv more than that of his old college roommate that he has known for over 45 years.

Not the centuries of English chauvinism and religious bigotry.

    There’s a good book Daughters of the Winter Queen about 3 granddaughters of James 1 who spent 20 years plotting against James 2. One of these women was Sophia duchess and electress of Hanover. The other two were her cousins Queens Mary and Anne Stuart of England. Their motive was the birth of a healthy baby boy James son of James 2 and second wife Mary of Modena. The birth of that baby boy was the event that set the Glorious Revolution off..

    Nothing about Jewish Dutch bankers. But a good explanation of the background. It’s popular history genre. Available in many public libraries.

    Also helpful would be an honest biography of Jack Churchill. A true treasonous insurrectionist snake who changed sides constantly. Honest biography not the standard hagiography by his descendants.

    Andrew Joyce and other occidental observer writers might have something. But can’t search their archives by subject. There’s been some internet articles I’ve read about the inglorious revolution. But I can’t find them.

    Prof. Jeffrey Sachs is an ultra-respectable Establishment academic and Tulsi Gabbard is a prominent former Congresswoman and Democratic Presidential candidate, who recently started a channel on Youtube and posts her videos there. But her discussion of the dangers of World War III with Sachs was apparently too controversial for her to risk putting it on her Youtube channel and getting a Strike or even being totally purged, so she only put it up on Rumble instead. Various podcasters I know have told me that they often feel compelled to do the same thing.

    It’s a ridiculous situation when individuals who so mainstream and discussing such important matters are fearful of putting their interviews up on their own Youtube channel.

    Yes, ….. and furthermore, even more unspeakably horrifying, is the obvious evidence that it wasn’t just blowback, because indeed there are many many evidentiary links between sas-cov-2 development and covid-gene-therapy development, …. which led to the vaxxo-shite program as executed, which indeed has proved to be ‘shite’, which indeed has also proved to be a foreknowledge that the authorities possessed, that indeed the shite outcome as experienced, was indeed the most likely, as prior research indicated, and that all this was forced upon the populace by a concerted campaign of lies to, at first, eventuate the success of the coming vaxxo-shite coercion, and then later, to enforce the narrative, after the fact, that all these policies were/are and continue to be pro-social responses from our authorities.

So far, you are the only horse worth riding (even though you are always bucking), ….. because those that admit the vaxx is shite (let’s say Tucker Carlson for example) don’t admit that sars-cov-2 was, at least in part, an intentionally released faux-west globalist bioweapon (and at least you are admitting the culprits are American neocons, which is a good start, but which is going to end up being synonymous with ‘faux-west globalists’, in the end, whether you like it or not).

    Here’s the websites I found. Jew Jewish ones are excellent. Pro Jewish of course but more truthful than the standard English chauvinist religious bigotry version found in most of the standard books Glorious Revolution published in English.

    A random thought. The 1600s were a war of England vs Netherlands. Netherlands kept hold of what’s now Indonesia and Sri Lanka. But Netherlands suffered a humiliating defeat when it lost what’s now New York State and NYC and one of the greatest harbors in the world. It was James 2 who conquered New Amsterdam. Before he was King. When he was Duke if York and chief admiral and strategist of the English navy. The Dutch and William the Dutch prince must have been very happy when the Dutch finally conquered England. And sent James 2 into exile.

    The Glorious Revolution

    There might be histories of The Glorious Revolution in your nearest college library that aren’t the standard English chauvinism and religious bigotry. Might. Possibly. Maybe tell the reference librarian you’re looking for a revisionist history of the Glorious Revolution.

    The main thing to remember is that the English laws of succession were oldest son younger sons in order of birth if there were no sons then oldest daughter then younger daughters.

    James 2, first wife Anne Hyde died young. Their two daughters were raised by maternal relatives to believe first Mary, then Anne would be sovereign after James 2 died.

    And then James 2 married again. And some years later he and wife Mary of Modena had a very healthy thriving baby boy, James . First in line to be sovereign when James 2 died.. Mary, Anne and Mary’s husband Dutch William prince of Orange didn’t let that happen.

    Hello, Realist:

    So (1) what is the point of posting articles on TUR or commenting on articles since not many are listening? _Realist #69

    I can’t answer for every one who posts or comments on TUR, though I suspect some are “doing it for the lulz,” others are manifesting a nasty case of logorrhea, unrestrained arrogance, or hatred so evil and toxic that it has eaten through its grudge-nurse’s skull and now seeks other souls on the Internet to poison.

    And as to those with nobler motivations. “Not many” > “none.” For more insight, maybe you could research the parable of the shepherd who left 99 sheep safe at home to seek high and low for the missing solitary sheep.

    So (2) the number one reason to be a journalist is to make money…not to seek and speak the truth? _Realist #69

    Oh dear, I don’t think I ever said that, though I suspect these days, that may be a true statement.

    Again, as to those with nobler motivations: these are often caught in a bind. Many of those who care enough about the future to tell the truth have ALSO done their part to see that the future is stocked with a new generation that has been trained to be decent and responsible. And a new generation means hungry little mouths to feed. In families where a Castle-full of such youngun’s is being brought up, a lot of hungry little mouths.

    J.P. We are not in disagreement about the creative minority. However, last night I watched a video about five individuals from various lands whose parents encouraged their insistence on going their own way. One was from Utah, a man the French would call an “idiot Savant”. To the average American that term would seem to be a total contradiction in terms. Yes, the 50 something guy likely cannot even tie his own shoes, but his brain is so organized/reorganized that the has an unbelievable memory of everything he reads…tens of thousands of books, magazines, newspaper articles, etc.

    Another of the individuals was a very young boy whose musical genius was recognized and encouraged AT BIRTH, where they had already bought him a Steinway piano. By the age of 7, much like Mozart, he was not only composing music but already directing both orchestras and jazz concerts.

    Point is, people are as the P.C. types insist, “differently talented”. The early 20th Century author, philosopher, film-maker and friend of some of the greatest creative geniuses of the last century, Jean Cocteau, stated that one should not be concerned about the achievements of other persons, rather to develop your own particular genius and take it from there…slightly paraphrased.

    Public schooling is the greatest destroyer of young minds, ditto the boobtoob and now both gaming and social-media. It’s all about adjustment to the mean…being part of the herd. If you study history, you would discover that in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, relatively unschooled Americans were coming up with invention after invention and creating buildings and landscapes of beauty.

    If parents could come to the realization that each and perhaps almost every child, has within that self patterns from prior lifetimes which much be recognized and encouraged at the earliest possible age; the existence of mediocrity amongst the masses would rapidly dissolve. Any possible schooling beyond the home should be specifically adjusted to fulfill the interests and needs of the individual child. The masses are an impositional concoction. True civilizational enculturation can only come about when the individual is encouraged to be himself at the earliest possible age. Only strong individuals are capable of combining with others such to develop a coherent culture.

    Thanks for the reply. I still think that Greenwald is not clear about his political and ideological preferences. He is certainly clear on one issue: freedom of the press. He has spoken for it both in the U.S. and in Brazil. He lives in Brazil but writes mostly about the U.S., and I guess it is to be expected that he should have a position about freedom of the press in those two countries.
    He also seems to be very much against American wars.
    It usually takes more than that to safely characterize one’s ideological stance, but maybe not. It’s an interesting question.
    Greenwald seems to be identically minded as Noam Chomsky in those two issues. Chomsky is more or less tacitly acknowledged to be leftwing-oriented; his positions in economic matters and others are more explicit than Greenwald’s. Chomsky’s reasoning in a video from many years ago was that it is not advantageous to the Left to curb speech from the Right because then the Left itself will be targeted. So, it was not a principled stance, but rather a strategic one. Greenwald has brought up that same reasoning to bear on a Brazilian affair involving a podcaster who advocated for Brazil to have the same kind of freedom of speech as the U.S.. So, maybe Greenwald is a leftist too? We can’t be sure.

    The more you read about the Dutch invasion and conquest of England in 1688, the more you realize it wasn’t a peaceful revolution at all.

    It was a combination of 2 things.

    First and foremost the overthrow of an English sovereign by relatives. In this case daughters and one son in-law. Who was also a nephew. Or Willian Mary and Anne. Old, old tradition among the English royal family. From William 2 to Edward

    Second it was the victory of Netherlands over England after about 70 years of Naval warfare.

    The source for Alden’s claims about the Glorious Revolution and about Charles II’s death seem to be the anti-semitic book “The Nameless War”, published in 1952, written by one Archibald Ramsay. The related parts are the first chapter (“The British Revolution”) and the Appendix 3 (“The Jews in Britain”).

    Russell Brand also switched to Rumble and he now has his own show there…Andrew Tate also got a large audience at Rumble after all his bans and made the Rumble app over night to number one in the app store.

    I’ve seen Russell Brand’s name widely mentioned, though I’m not familiar with him. He’s apparently posted hundreds of videos on his Rumble channel, but only three of them have broken 200K views.

    I’ve never even heard of Andrew Tate, but his Rumble channel has a couple of hundred videos, of which a half-dozen have reached a million or more views.

    So I think these results are generally consistent with my impression of Rumble traffic, though some of Tate’s results seem much stronger than I would have expected.

    Ramsey also agreed with my conclusions about the mid late 17th century Church of England. That it was controlled by underground Puritan Calvinists pretending to conform to the state religion.

    James 1 was determined to eliminate religious dissent and preserve the one Church of England. He drove the puritans to the continent and America. But enough of them stayed that by 1640 they controlled the Church of England.

    “There are no robust data on the real onset of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection and spread in the prepandemic period worldwide. We investigated the presence of SARS-CoV-2 receptor-binding domain (RBD)-specific antibodies in blood samples of 959 asymptomatic individuals enrolled in a prospective lung cancer screening trial between September 2019 and March 2020 to track the date of onset, frequency, and temporal and geographic variations across the Italian regions. SARS-CoV-2 RBD-specific antibodies were detected in 111 of 959 (11.6%) individuals, starting from September 2019 (14%), with a cluster of positive cases (>30%) in the second week of February 2020 and the highest number (53.2%) in Lombardy. This study shows an unexpected very early circulation of SARS-CoV-2 among asymptomatic individuals in Italy several months before the first patient was identified, and clarifies the onset and spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Finding SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in asymptomatic people before the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy may reshape the history of pandemic.”

    Here’s the abstract:

    Thanks. But I think the critical arguments in my original July 2021 article apply equally well to this one.

    My impression is that you don’t have any sort of scientific background and therefore treat a published scientific paper with a little too much awe, assuming it must be correct without critically considering its claims and deciding whether they make logical sense.

    According to the abstract you cite, it sounds like nearly 12% of all the Italians randomly screened across that region of Italy had been infected with the Covid virus as early as September 2019.

    The single most significant fact about Covid is that absent strong public health control measures, the number of infected individuals tends to double every 3-6 days, increasing by something like 100x or 1000x every month. Sometimes pinpoint outbreaks die out by themselves, but otherwise within a few weeks you get an exponentially growing epidemic that quickly becomes extremely visible. That was the pattern in pretty much all the outbreaks in Europe or elsewhere.

    If anything like 12% of the Italians in that region had been infected as early as September 2019, we’d probably be talking about tens or hundreds of thousands of cases, which would have produced millions or tens of millions of Italian infections by the end of 2019.

    Unless you’re a Flu Hoaxer who believes that Covid infections are harmless, it’s simply impossible for Italy not to have noticed something like that. Therefore, the antibody test results are almost certainly erroneous. If you’d look at my article, you’ll see that there are numerous other examples of such false-positive antibody results that are clearly erroneous. Indeed, there are indications that a single antibody test may produce 98% false-positives. So these Italian results are probably just another example of that.

    It’s not just Ramsey. I read the PDF of Nameless Wat . Everything in his book has been known to me most of my life. I saw, on a small scale, what Noo Yawk Ivy League Jews did to my hometown San Francisco in about 25 years, 1960 to 1985. I’m also very very familiar with the commie Jews who infiltrated colleges starting in the 1930s.

    I didn’t learn anything from that Ramsey book I’d been learning about communist Jews since childhood. One of the Jews mentioned was Sam Untermeyer. Rockefeller attorney. Blackmailed Woodrow Wilson into WW1. Organized the Jewish boycott of Germany in 1933. I grew up with some of his great grandchildren. Their parents, old Sam’s descendants were commie Jews heavily involved in financing NAACP, Martin Luther King and the civil rights for all but Whites movement. Financed all those marches and agitation in the south. Friends of Bob Truehaft.

    Had various socialists weather under grounds Prison Law Project Faye Stender Angela Davis stayed at their house. Some creep pervert Jewish Trotskyites Young Socialists Men from Noo Yawk stayed in their home while organizing Jewish commie riots that closed down University of California at Berkeley. And all three of those pervs tried to molest their daughters age 10
    and 12. Who of course were too afraid and embarrassed to tell their parents.

    You jews aren’t the only people in the world with brains educations and money. There’s people like me who know what you are. And have the brains educations and money to resist you. And your black Hispanic criminal gay lesbian insane transsexual asian idiot brainwashed storm trooper followers. You’re a member of an evil group that hates hates hates White goyim and the White European Christian world we created.

    Even the gay activists in San Francisco were mostly Jews. Weird isn’t it? Were they really gay? Or just pretending to create a separate power group? Like the Jew commie girls who had black babies. Lou Carrillo looked at the list of the 125 largest and best funded wealthiest gsy men advocacy groups. Discovered that 105 of if those groups were headed by Jewish gay men. My conclusion wasn’t that Jewish men are disproportionately gay. My conclusion is that they will be gay if it can help destroy White Christian civilization.

    Compared to me you’re a pathetic middle class ignorant jumped up brainwashed Jew. Probably an assistant Grievance Studies instructor in a state college.

    Military Biolabs in Ukraine: A Pandora’s Box

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/military-biolabs-ukraine-pandora-box/5775234

    ”A few days ago the discovery of 30 military biolabs in Ukraine was reported, and the Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva published the leaked documents showing the direct involvement of the US Department of Defense in the financing of the Ukrainian biolabs.

    Nuland’s confirmation of the existence of a network of biolaboratories reconfirms the credibility of the Bulgarian journalist’s research. Gaytandzhieva published documents of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), attached to the Pentagon, confirming the financing of biological research in Ukraine, under the aegis of the U.S. company Black & Veatch Special Projects Corp. The U.S. agency allocated $80 million in 2020.

    European countries were also involved in the biolaboratories

    Igor Kirillov, Head of the Radiological, Chemical and Biological Defense Forces of the Russian Armed Forces, explained this week the results of the analysis of documents found in Ukrainian military biolabs:

    The U.S. funded biolabs in Kiev, Odessa, Lvov and Kharkov, awarding $32 million, in order to “study” pathogens of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis and hantaviruses. Their use can be disguised as natural disease outbreaks.

    Six families of viruses (including coronaviruses) and three types of pathogenic bacteria (causative agents of plague, brucellosis and leptospirosis) have been identified as having characteristics suitable for infecting humans from animals. Research has even been carried out on the transmission of diseases through bats.

    There are a number of documents confirming the transfer of biological samples taken in Ukraine to the territory of third countries, including Germany, Great Britain and Georgia.

    The transmission of highly pathogenic avian influenza by wild birds was studied at the Kharkiv Institute of Veterinary Medicine.

    The transfer of 5,000 blood serum samples taken from Ukrainian residents to the Pentagon-supported Richard Lugar Center in Tbilisi, Georgia, was confirmed.

    Another 773 assays were transferred to the United Kingdom, while an agreement was signed to transfer “unlimited quantities” of infectious supplies to the Friedrich Loeffler Institute, Germany’s leading animal disease center.

No doubt related to their very lexical-centered religion, alienation, child sacrifice, Jewess castration complexes, the massive world energies that warp the Jewish soul, etc.

    But haven’t seen that Jews hate White Christians so much. Jews WILL use whoever, whatever is there for their ends. Joe Tsai folded into the ritual public humiliation of Kyrie Irving, being the latest example. Or just watch 5 minutes Jim Cramer, the feral Jew of Wall Street.

    This mutual d+ck sucking foray of certain Jews into homosexual politics will backfire on them, hugely. Allan Bloom, Jew porn, Jewlywood. Unfortunately, for the Jews (a people I greatly admire on the whole), their basic mania will always call for Karma to be their bitch.

    I’ve just remembered one who has been hugely relevant to the very recent developments: Glenn Greenwald. Ain’t life funny?
    It goes like this. When the PT party was in office, there was a series of corruption probes which came to be known collectively as “Lava-Jat0” (Car Wash) which seriously implicated the PT. Many people were convicted, among them ex-president Lula da Silva, who then went to jail and lost his political rights. Then one day a nobody who allegedly had some experience in computer hacking found out a way to invade the Telegram accounts of some members of the prosecuting team who were leading the probes. (Said hacker said he found it out all by himself, but if you believe that I have an American Pravda collection to sell you.) Anyway, he then made contact with Glenn Greenwald through a third person, and Greenwald agreed to publish the hacked conversations on the Intercept Brasil, his venue at that time. It was exposed that the prosecuting team was having conversations with judge Sérgio Moro, and apparently being led by him. Scandal ensued, and eventually the Supreme Court annulled Lula’s convictions, released him and restored his political rights. The rest you probably know: Lula ran for president and got elected.

    as for their presence in Brazilian politics I don’t see they’re especially relevant.

    The key words here are “I don’t see”. I am Brazilian myself and I confess that I also have a hard time seeing the Jewish influence in Brazilian politics. The problem is that we don’t have a site like The Unz Review nor brilliant scholars like Kevin Macdonald willing to study the Jewish Question in Brazil in a serious manner.

    In Brazil, I don’t know of even one scholar or public figure who is willing to go near the question of Jewish influence in our country, with the exception of Gustavo Barroso, who wrote “A História Secreta do Brasil” (“The Secret History of Brazil”) and “Brasil: Colônia de Banqueiros” (“Brazil — Colony of Bankers”). But he wrote these books in the 1930s and died in 1959. His work is not taught in any of the Brazilian history classes, for he has been canceled: “He is considered the most anti-Semitic Brazilian intellectual”, according to Wikipedia.

    Instead of the search for the truth, we get someone like the recently deceased Olavo de Carvalho, a gatekeeper whose job it was to steer all the “conservatives” completely away from seeing the reality of Jewish influence in Brazilian and world politics. It’s really revolting, when you think about it, how many gulllible people he led astray. So there’s nobody out here in Brazil to talk about this — and this is why we can’t “see” it happening.

    Of course there have been occasions when I’ve noticed their influence, but only when it’s so blatant a child would pick up on it: Armínio Fraga, for example, who is Jewish and worked (and probably still does) for George Soros, and who helped him bring down the Thai Baht in the 90’s, became the president of our Banco Central under Fernando Henrique and is still around vying for a nomination in the new Lula government. Ilan Goldfajn is another one of our “Brazilian” ex-central bank presidents, who just happens to have been born in Haifa and still holds Israeli citizenship.

    Oh, and a few ex-ministers of the economy (Guido Mantega and Joaquim Levy) just happen to be Jewish as well. Oh, and the president of the company (“Positivo Tecnologia”) which sold the electronic voting urns to the Brazilian state just happens to be Jewish as well. This in a country of about 210 million people of which only about 107,000 are Jews, according to the last census.

    These few examples are just the tiny tip of the iceberg because I am sure the Jewish influence in Brazil is massive — but we’re blind to it because we don’t have a modern-day Gustavo Barroso nor a site like Unz.com where people can freely search for the truth based on open discussions without the fear of being canceled or worse…

    What are your thoughts on the midterms?

    I hadn’t been closely following the campaign, but like many others I was surprised that the “red wave” failed to materialize and that the Republicans gained much less than has usually been the case in the first midterms following a new president, especially given the extremely high inflation and other public discontent.

    The Biden policies have been disastrous, but I’m not sure the Republicans would be that much better, so I didn’t have very strong feelings about the vote.

    One thing I did focus upon was the continuing shift of Hispanics and Asians towards the Republican Party, which got about 40% of their vote, after Trump had done around the same in 2020. There were several NYT articles suggesting this might happen and a long Atlantic article on the same subject that I thought was quite persuasive:

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2022/11/hispanic-voters-fleeing-democratic-party/671851/

    I think this trend of the last half-dozen years is a very important development, and amounts to those groups essentially joining the white political majority. They may still lean Democratic, but are now well within the political spectrum of the white mainstream, and such tectonic shifts anyway take some time to play out. The whole process reminds me of the “white ethnics” who had been a core element of the traditional Democratic coalition, but shifted heavily to the Republicans during a 15 year period starting in the mid/late 1960s.

    I think I’ll probably write something about this important situation.

    If anything like 12% of the Italians in that region had been infected as early as September 2019, we’d probably be talking about tens or hundreds of thousands of cases, which would have produced millions or tens of millions of Italian infections by the end of 2019.

    Among the most memorable stories about Covid early in 2020 was how hard it hit northern Italy in late February early March. Mostly the elderly who are sizable portion of the demography, perhaps living with two or three generations under the same roof, the situation enabling fast transmission of the virus. What the MSM was reporting at the time was confirmed to me by my long standing business contacts in Italy. Overflowing hospitals with great many elderly people suffering with no help and even dying alone at home. If we have people from Italy here I would greatly appreciate their comments about this.

    As far as I know: Covid infection spreads in matter of days if not inhibited. To be sure some part of the population doesn’t get very ill or even shows symptoms when infected. Perhaps this is the reason it’s possible to entertain the notion Covid might have been circling in Italy since September 19?

    Considering the effect Covid had when it spread in February and early March this scenario falls apart in my mind. Simply because the elderly population in Northern Italy is like a canary in a coalmine. There is no way around this given the population had no immunity against the new (ish) virus.

    Sure: these thing are difficult to calculate – but judging by numbers I got from Covid spread in Iceland – Northern Italy got Covid only few weeks before it’s hospitals got clogged up by elderly patients.

    This makes the spread of Covid in September 19 extremely unlikely.

  244. So if these problems persist and Trump can’t obtain his funding, a possible solution might be to merge his company with Rumble, which already shares many of the same ideological supporters.

    Trump is toxic to anything his name is attached to. Rumble explicitly aligning with any Ideological Ghetto, including Trump’s would be viewed that it is a front for that Ghetto and strip it of it claims that it is as an open “all-comers” platform.

    I’ve heard that. I’m curious as to what you think may have happened for him to lose his prominence so completely (he wanted the Presidency but couldn’t get a party nomination, so he settled for a Senate position, and was elected). There is a joke which is related to this situation (actually from a little before the recent developments):

    (Translation: “If the CIA gives Moro up, won’t it be considered as abandonment of an unfit person?”)
    I think Bolsonaro spoiled the plans of whoever was behind the downfall of the PT (Lula’s party). It turned out they couldn’t use Bolsonaro because he is deranged, so it seems they brought Lula back as the lesser evil. But Lula either did not promise anything in return or is not making good on his promise, because he is putting the wheels in motion for a big spending package which is throwing the Brazilian Economic Agents into a frenzied panic.

    Read what I said, I wasn’t lamenting the fact that we aren’t ravaged by these diseases today as much as we once were, I was simply making a statement about the fact that we have been largely removed from the environmental challenges we once faced every day and that we eat food that’s full of chemicals. I was simply asking the question, has our creativity and intelligence as a people been degraded today, compared to our Victorian ancestors?

    Gee, Ronni, for a guy who doesn’t get his information in vid format, you seem awfully proud of your TeeVee presence.

    Sure, you’re not interested in the subject, haven’t spent much time researching it, but you’re happy to wax poetic about it all day long.

    At least in the US, we have choice among conservative commentators, You have Dan Bongino, Stew Peters, Hal Turner, Tucker Carson, Sean Hannity, Infowars etc. You can pick which one that floats your boat. In countries such as Canada, UK, Germany you have the state television and radio apparatus and their clones in the corporate owned “private” media and nobody else.

  250. Ron should post some Garland Nixon podcasts like this one: https://theduran.com/freeze-this-conflict-or-escalate-w-garland-nixon-live/.

    His thesis: the U.S. using the Ukraine was as a pretext to deindustrialize Europe in favor of its own economy. Essentially, it’s the quasi-genocidal Morgenthau Plan all over again only, this time, “Fuck ’em, they’re all Germans!”

    He seems to think their only hope is Russia, China, BRICS+/BRI, but they won’t likely realize it until it’s too late and they see their comprador elites clinging to the wheels of the last plane out of Frankfurt/Kabul.

    Thanks always nice to hear from someone with actual knowledge of what’s happening.

    Northern Italy has around 2300 (!) Chinese factories/shops/businesses. Lots of air traffic between northern Italy and China, because Chinese subcontractors for the Italian fashion industry for example employ thousands of Chinese workers and they go back and forth. Not least in springtime, when the national Chinese Golden Week-holidays took place with 600+ million Chinese travelling – some of them back and forth to and from Italy – from and to Wuhan too…
    Btw. – the Italian government (!) ran indeed a huge campaign ih TV commercials andbillboard ads and lots of prominent liberal/left wing suporters – asking the Italians , to Hug a Chinese right after this Covid thing had begun to take off in Italy – and they did!! – – The idea was to prove, that the xenophobic right wingers worldwide – like Donald Trump, most of all – – – were all wrong in stirring up China fear! – Thsi should be aq chapter in the book about this quite impressive Italian Covid story.

    Hospitals in Italy are overflowing almost every winter. So this is nothing special, peopel are used to it.
    And you have much fog in northern Italy – fog & smog (Milano alone produces more CO-2 than all of Switzerland).
    And then there is something very Italian: People there (together with Spain…) have the highest rates of antibiotic-resistance in all of Europe, because they medicate their elderly with these substances in high quantities. You need no doctor’s prescription for antibiotics, as is the case in Austria or Switzerland. Just go to the pharmacy and – buy that stuff…
    Since antibiotics are badly needed as soon as the lungs are making serious troubles – you have a deadly mix already.

    Yeah and add to that that Italy did indeed have not enough masks and not enough ventilators and that the hospitals were understaffed – and add to that that they indeed do live much more often than the neighboring Swiss for example in extended families – young and old together. And that they did indeed put infected people back in their care homes (instead of putting them into the empty hotels that there are aplenty – that is one more mistake that added to the problems Italy did have with Covid, and you get an idea, what went wrong there: – – – It was quite a bit.
    I should add that Italy does have a quite high life expectancy so: That very good thing too added – an above average cohort of – problematic people to have around when a new virus appears…dry tinder.

    I and my family don’t eat food full of chemicals. Reading the labels and cooking fresh food and making curry sauce tomato sauce gravy and the rest out of spices water flour cornstarch stock and the bits in the pan the meat is roasted in is roasted in isn’t hard. Reading labels us even easier.

    Still, I’d rather eat food full of chemicals than get food poisoning from unrefrigerated food in summer. And drink clean tap water than beer at breakfast and lunch.

    And not have to spend 20 years of my life nursing my children through diphtheria tuberculosis malaria scarlet fever pertussis polio food poisoning from half rotten food and cholera tainted water. And being worried they’d die every time the hit sick

    I’m glad I have clean city water and indoor plumbing. Instead of emptying and cleaning chamber pots a couple times a day. . I’m glad I can just get into my evil fossil fueled car and drive. Instead of going into a filthy horse shed and harnessing a filthy horse to a vehicle and driving it on streets covered with filthy horse manure.

    I’m glad I have a refrigerator so I can keep food from spoiling and dealing with kids who have diarrhea all summer long. Or worrying about kids coming home with polio every time they go swimming.

    As for food filled with chemicals; just read the labels. Buy fresh food. Cook it. I’m happy to share some recipes. Did you know not all soup comes from a can or box?

    By the way, I live in the real world.

    I don’t think Armínio Fraga is Jewish. His ancestry, to the best of my knowledge, is Portuguese (he comes from ancient Brazilian aristocracy on at least one branch of his ancestry) on his father’s side and Irish-American on his mother’s side. He is Catholic. On what do you base your claim that he is Jewish?

    All food is a natural mixture of chemicals, and food additives are necessary to stop the pathogenic microbes from consuming another resource for human consumption. There are thousands of poisonous plant species on the planet and their primary defense against herbivores is natural chemical warfare. There are no non-toxic chemicals–“the dose makes the poison.”

  261. What kind of journalist are you? This is appalling by omission – the very thing you are criticising. We know it was made in a lab – why aren’t the media up in arms? It’s such a stale conversation as shaped to be that way.

    This journalism reminds me of a dog fat at home by a fireplace all well in his/her world – but all traces of the terrier or retriever left to sniffing this and that on a walk.

    You haven’t really tackled the massive issues and you’ve gone along with the MSM dogma. We know you know this.

    Grow some proverbials and start punching.

  262. And don’t forget the stories of pregnant women and babies – jabbed needlessly and dangerously – that is the real story. It’s time to say it – the evidence is clear. Country after country advise this med tech for these people when we know scientifically it is extremely dangerous for this cohort to take experimental meds.

    Shocking – evil – madness – inexplicable. Unless you report on this yourself, I assume you are complicit.

    Origins happened – history – do that too. I’d applaud. But don’t be a house dog.

    Thanks. Eyeballing Russell Brand’s Youtube and Rumble channels, it looks like the viewership averages roughly 50x greater on the former, which is about what I’d expect given the difference in audience size.

    That’s actually pretty encouraging since my own three main Rumble podcast interviews are now all between 500K and 1M views. Imagine how they might be doing on Youtube absent shadow-banning and similar suppression.
