Book review: “Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality: The Medical Assault on the American Brain”, by Toby Roberts

What if most of the U.S., including the people who presume to rule us, are already brain-damaged from vaccines? From the Toby Roberts at 2ndsmartestguyintheworld.substack.com:

Harris L. Coulter connected the dots back in 1990 and his words still ring true today

I want to draw your attention to an extraordinary but little-known book titled Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality: The Medical Assault on the American Brain. It was published in 1990 and it’s out of print but there are still a few used copies available on Amazon and eBay. It was written by Harris L. Coulter (1932 – 2009) a visionary medical historian (with a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Columbia University) who also co-authored A Shot in the Dark with Barbara Loe Fisher in 1986.

Vaccination, Social Violence, and Criminality is as close as our movement gets to a Unified Field Theory. Coulter argues that everything from the social upheaval of the 1960s to the sharp rise in autism, cranial nerve palsies, depression, suicide, eating disorders, learning disabilities, seizures, allergies, family dissolution, demyelinating disorders, sexual violence, and other forms of psychopathy & sociopathy — all stem, at least in part, from pervasive subclinical encephalitis (and post-encephalitic syndrome) as a result of vaccines. Coulter provides extensive references from the scientific and medical literature at the end of each chapter to document his claims (this was before science and medicine started censoring all discussion of vaccines).

Hotter than the Sun: Finally, a Book Worth Reading, by Joseph Solis-Mullen

The number of close nuclear calls and the current situation give this book a certain urgency. From Joseph Solis-Mullen at mises.org:

The top seller on Amazon for books devoted to war and peace as of this writing, Scott Horton’s newest offering, Hotter than the Sun: Time to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, is a timely must read. As Washington barrels heedlessly along into Cold War II, the American public badly needs educating on the current risks, past close calls, and the utter insanity of an entire for-profit industry built on the flawed concept of thousands of thermonuclear bombs as “weapons” that keep us safe.

With major papers like the Wall Street Journal and New York Times now regularly running pieces arguing everything from the need to show the Russians we aren’t afraid to fight a nuclear war—that we can even “win” one—to the idea that a “small” nuclear war can help mitigate climate change, Scott’s book is a vital weapon in the hands of the sane, convincingly making the case that it really is time to get rid of the thousands of nuclear and thermonuclear bombs in existence.

Because the truth about thousands of nuclear and thermonuclear bombs, the overwhelming majority of which are possessed by the United States and Russia, is immutable. Just as Ronald Reagan said forty years ago, a nuclear war cannot be won and can never be fought.

The Covid Plot Against Humanity, by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Lew Rockwell reviews Dr. Naomi Wolf’s recent book, The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, Covid-19 and the War Against the Human. From Rockwell at lewrockwell.com:

The great historian and literature scholar Dr. Naomi Wolf has written the most important book of our times. She really nails it. After you read The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, Covid-19 and the War Against the Human, you will understand the truly diabolical conspiracy that threatens the world with destruction. In an article a few weeks ago, I reviewed Robert Kennedy’s essential book The Real Anthony Fauci. Kennedy showed that Fauci’s efforts to promote global catastrophe and to profit from it go back decades. But Dr. Wolf goes even further. She shows how evil the forces of destruction really are.

She begins from the onset of the so-called “pandemic” early in 2020. That’s only a little more than two years ago, but the world before then was vastly different from what it is now. We have entered a new Dark Age.  In Dr. Wolf’s career as a reporter and journalist, she knew for a while Chrystia Freeland, who became the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada. Dr. Wolf writes, “’Ms. Freeland was part of a small cadre of ‘influentials’ connected to the World Economic Forum. . .She and her peers, along with allied elites in other fields, eventually masterminded a crime against humanity unprecedented in our times—-a crime that involves the theft of assets and the destruction of cultures, as well as untold deaths.” “This book,” she says, “is about how we came to this harrowing civilizational crossroads—-engaged in a war against vast impersonal forces with limitless control over our lives for the freedoms we have taken for granted; how these forces seized upon two years of COVID-19 panic in sinister new ways; and how, yet, against overwhelming odds, we might still win.”

Will the Global South break free from dollarized debt?By Pepe Escobar

If the South can break free, it’s a whole new world. From Pepe Escobar at thesaker.is:

n his latest book, economist Michael Hudson pits socialism against finance capitalism and tears apart the ‘dream civilization’ imposed by the 1 percent.

With The Destiny of Civilization: Finance Capitalism, Industrial Capitalism or Socialism, Michael Hudson, one of the world’s leading independent economists, has given us arguably the ultimate handbook on where we’re at, who’s in charge, and whether we can bypass them.

Let’s jump straight into the fray. Hudson begins with an analysis of the “take the money and run” ethos, complete with de-industrialization, as 90 percent of US corporate revenue is “used to share buybacks and dividend payouts to support company stock prices.”

That represents the apex of “Finance Capitalism’s” political strategy: to “capture the public sector and shift monetary and banking power” to Wall Street, the City of London and other western financial centers.

The whole Global South will easily recognize the imperial modus operandi: “The strategy of US military and financial imperialism is to install client oligarchies and dictatorships, and arm-twist allies to join the fight against designated adversaries by subsidizing not only the empire’s costs of war-making (“defense”) but even the imperial nation’s domestic spending programs.” This is the antithesis of the multipolar world advocated by Russia and China.

A new book argues Julian Assange is being tortured. Will our new PM do anything about it? From theconversation.com

We know the answer to the title question. The new Australian PM will do exactly what previous Australian PMs have done—nothing. From theconversation.com:

It is easy to forget why Julian Assange has been on trial in England for, well, seemingly forever.

Didn’t he allegedly sexually assault two women in Sweden? Isn’t that why he holed up for years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London to avoid facing charges? When the bobbies finally dragged him out of the embassy, didn’t his dishevelled appearance confirm all those stories about his lousy personal hygiene?

Didn’t he persuade Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning to hack into the United States military’s computers to reveal national security matters that endangered the lives of American soldiers and intelligence agents? He says he is a journalist, but hasn’t the New York Times made it clear he is just a “source” and not a publisher entitled to first amendment protection?


Review: The Trial of Julian Assange: A Story of Persecution – Nils Melzer (Verso)


If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you are not alone. But the answers are actually no. At very least, it’s more complicated than that.

 A Vital Book You Must Read, by Llewellyn H. Rockwell

Most people on this site have no love lost for Anthony Fauci, but Robert Kennedy Jr.’s book about Fauci serves as ample reminder why. From Llewellyn H. Rockwell at lewrockwell.com:

If you want to understand what is going on in the world today, there is a book you must read. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s, The Real Anthony Fauci. You might be wondering: Everybody already knows that Fauci is a mad “doctor” with a Napoleon complex who has blighted people’s lives with the deadly Covid vaccines he has pushed for  and crippled our economy through the lockdowns he has urged. And who could forget about “mask mandates”? As Cheri Zaslawski says, “Now let’s do some fact-checking to determine exactly what we can thank Dr. Fauci for:

  • “Dictating the draconian lockdown of America, putting the public under virtual house arrest, destroying the livelihoods of millions of our citizens, and driving many to despair and some to suicide, while killing others via denial of normal medical care to ‘make room’ for the millions of Covid hospitalizations that never materialized
  • Declaring hydroxychloroquine(HCQ) ‘ineffective’ thereby condemning thousands to death who never got this highly successful treatment
  • Pimping for Moderna and Pfizer experimental mRNA ‘vaccines’ that have already resulted in thousands of deaths–3,848 listed in VAERS as of April 2021—and an additional 44,606 ‘adverse events,’ including stroke and paralysis.”

It’s safe to say that Fauci wouldn’t win any popularity contests. But if we know all this, why read a book about him? It’s like saying: “Here’s a book you must read. It shows Stalin was a really bad guy!”

We Must Find a Way to Prevent Bill Gates from Preventing the Next Pandemic, by eugyppius

With Bill Gates, there’s a lot less than meets the eye. Eugyppius has actually read his latest book. From eugyppius at eugyppius.com:

A book review.

For days now, I’ve been fighting my way through Bill Gates’s disturbing new book on How to Prevent the Next Pandemic, and I’ve found myself wondering about one question above all:

How are we to explain Gates, exactly?

I know that for many of you he is a calculating conspiratorial goon. Pretend for a moment that he’s not, though. Imagine, for the sake of argument, that he’s every inch the obtuse, naive and self-important former software developer that he seems to be. How did he get this way, what does he even think he is doing, and what can it mean?

Remember that this man has billions of dollars. A whole world of unusual vices stands open to him: He could hire a mercenary army to invade some country and proclaim himself god-emperor for life. He could retire to a tropical island with his favourite mind-altering substances and a harem of nubile young women. He could do both at once, and other things besides. Instead, he has chosen the path of moral vanity, perhaps the least interesting vice of all, founding a ponderous grantmaking foundation and pooping around the globe in manboobs and ill-fitting polo shirts, pronouncing to all and sundry on subjects he hardly understands.

Michael Senger’s Snake Oil: A Review, by eugyppius

The point of the Chinese response to Covid-19 wasn’t the virus, it was the lockdowns. From eugyppius at eugyppius.com:

Michael P. Senger, Snake Oil: How Xi Jinping Shut Down the World (2021). 220pp. ISBN: 978-1957083780. $10.99.

I will never tire of typing that the whole question, of how lockdowns became the default response to Corona, is very hard. Some points are nevertheless clear: There was, without a doubt and in the earliest stages, a kind of lockdown cabal, a small group of people in different countries who worked to bring some simulacrum of the Hubei response first to Italy and then to most of the globe. An insidious, coordinated information campaign accompanied their efforts, and this should warn us against easy assumptions that they had good intentions.

On social media, a swarm of manipulative pro-lockdown accounts promoted containment and attacked any prominent politician who tried to steer a moderate course. Michael Senger was among the first to point out that this campaign was operated, in part, out of China. His crucial September 2020 article on the Chinese promotion of lockdowns on social media for Tablet Magazine won him wide renown. He had over 100,000 followers on Twitter before the platform banned him; he now writes The New Normal on Substack, and you should all subscribe to him.

Robert Francis Kennedy, Jr.’s Heroic Resistance to the CIA’s Continuing Covid Coup D’état, by Edward Curtin

You can bet Robert Kennedy’s latest take down of Anthony Fauci has earned him scores of enemies in high places. From Edward Curtin at lewrockwell.com:

A Meditation

With his extraordinary new book, The Real Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public HealthRFK, Jr. has made it very clear that he will not allow Orwell’s 1984 totalitarian boot to stamp on his face.  His is a very rare moral courage, and he is asking us to join him, before it is too late and we enter into a new dark age, in recognizing and resisting the evil forces intent on stamping out democracy around the world.  He is not pulling his punches with language as he accuses the political-intelligence-media-money-medical-corporate-pharmaceutical conspirators of executing “the controlled demolition of American constitutional democracy.”  For a brilliant and highly accomplished lawyer and excellent writer and speaker, the choice of those words “controlled demolition” is clearly intentional.

For anyone who doubts that the Covid-19 crisis is an intelligence-run operation controlled by spooks working with medical technocrats like Anthony Fauci, billionaires such as Bill Gates, the military, media, Big Pharma, the World Economic Forum, etc., a close reading of this book – with its 2,194 references – will disabuse one of that illusion.

The CIA has long been deeply involved with vaccines, viruses, drugs, weaponizing cancer, biological weapons, and of course massive mind-control operations – deadly propaganda in plain English – for use in controlling U.S. Americans and foreigners alike.  As Kennedy writes in an ironically understated way, “The pervasive CIA involvement in the global vaccine putsch should give us pause.”  Yes, a long pause.  He continues:

There is nothing in the CIA’s history, in its charter, in its composition, or in its institutional culture that betrays an interest in promoting either public health or democracy. The CIA’s historical preoccupations have been power and control. The CIA has been involved in at least seventy-two attempted and successful coup d’état between 1947 and 1989, involving about a third of the world’s governments. Many of these were functioningd democracies. The CIA does not do public health. It does not do democracy. The CIA does coups d’état. [my emphasis]

Just as it does Kennedy assassinations.

American Pravda: Vaxxing, Anthony Fauci, and AIDS, by Ron Unz

Once a charlatan, always a charlatan. From Ron Unz at unz.com:

RFK, Jr. and the Anti-Vaxxing Movement

I’ve never paid any attention to vaccines and my own views on the role they might play against Covid were entirely mainstream and conventional, as I explained a couple of months ago in a candid 9,000 word interview:

The resulting comment-thread—heavily laced with ferocious attacks against me—soon exceeded 200,000 words and became quite sluggish, so I was forced to follow it up with two successive Open Threads on the vaxxing controversy. Several of the anti-vaxxing articles by Whitney, Roberts, and Dinh also provoked enormously long exchanges.

The commenting-software I’ve developed for this website is quite powerful and flexible, allowing meaningful debates that may easily reach the length of a hefty book, a situation quite rare elsewhere on the Internet. As a consequence, some of the anti-vaxxers declared that our million or two million words of anti-vaxxing discussions probably constituted the largest such repository in existence, an achievement that gave me rather mixed feelings.
