Let governments take control of food production and distribution and famine is almost inevitable. From Chris MacIntosh at internationalman.com:
The parallels of history are hard to ignore.
Let’s take a look, because what’s happening today on the food front has been tried before.
From the 1930’s through the 1940’s Stalin’s Soviet Union had a “5-year Industrialization Plan” – these central planners never learn. This genius plan involved “rapid industrialization,” together with “socialized farming” and, of course, the elimination of private enterprise and property ownership.
The results? Grumpy people. A LOT of them. What brought about so many grumpy folks was this. Grain exports collapsed, economic output collapsed and more than 30 million starved to death between 1932 and 1947.
Next up, central planner numero deux.
Chairman Mao and the “Great Leap Forward.”
Like Stalin, Mao implemented a “5-year Industrialization Plan” from 1958 to 1962.
Fascist globalists of all stripes are upset by the election of Giorgia Meloni. Many have resorted to calling her a fascist—pure projection. From Pepe Escobar at strategic-culture.org:
Grab the Negronis and the Aperol Spritz; it’s show time.
It’s tempting to interpret the Italian electoral results this past Sunday as voters merrily hurling a bowl of lush papardelle with wild boar ragu over the collective bland faces of the toxic unelected Euro-oligarchy sitting in Brussels.
Well, it’s complicated.
Italy’s electoral system is all about coalitions. The center-right Meloni-Berlusconi-Salvini troika is bound to amass a substantial majority in both the Parliament’s Lower House and the Senate. Giorgia Meloni leads Fratelli d’Italia (“Brothers of Italy”). The notorious Silvio “Bunga Bunga” Berlusconi leads Forza Italia. And Matteo Salvini leads La Lega.
The established cliché across Italy’s cafes is that Giorgia becoming Prime Minister was a shoo-in: after all she’s “blonde, blue eyes, petite, sprightly and endearing”. And an expert communicator to boot. Quite the opposite of Goldman Sachs partner and former uber-ECB enforcer Mario Draghi, who looks like one of those bloodied emperors of Rome’s decadence. During his Prime Ministerial reign, he was widely derided – apart from woke/finance circles – as the leader of “Draghistan”.
On the financial front that otherworldly entity, the Goddess of the Market, the post-truth equivalent of the Delphi Oracle, bets that PM Giorgia will insist on the same old strategy: debt-funded fiscal stimulus, which will turn into a blowout in Italian debt (already huge, at 150% of GDP). All that plus a further collapse of the euro.
Many understand that Google is filtering and massively censoring information through its search engine, but it also has the power to censor in other areas, including your personal email if you’re using Gmail
The technocratic cabal is pushing the world toward global tyranny, and Google is one of the primary supporters, aiders and abettors, of this scheme
Google catches every single move you make online if you’re using a Google-based product. All Google products are interconnected, and the data from all their different products and services are collected to build your personality profile, which is both used to manipulate you, and sold to third parties to be used in whatever way they like
Google poses several unique threats to society. It’s a surveillance agency with military connections and covert surveillance powers, it’s a censoring agency with the ability to restrict or block access to websites across the internet, and it has the power to manipulate public opinion
Without Google, the technocrats’ dream of a One World Government would likely never happen, as it relies on social engineering and artificial intelligence. Google is a frontrunner and expert in both, and has the ability to control entire populations
In this first instalment of a new series, Iain Davis and Whitney Webb explore how the UN’s “sustainable development” policies, the SDGs, do not promote “sustainability” as most conceive of it and instead utilise the same debt imperialism long used by the Anglo-American Empire to entrap nations in a new, equally predatory system of global financial governance.
The UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is pitched as a “shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.” At the heart of this agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs.
Many of these goals sound nice in theory and paint a picture of an emergent global utopia – such as no poverty, no world hunger and reduced inequality. Yet, as is true with so much, the reality behind most – if not all – of the SDGs are policies cloaked in the language of utopia that – in practice – will only benefit the economic elite and entrench their power.
This can clearly be seen in fine print of the SDGs, as there is considerable emphasis on debt and on entrapping nation states (especially developing states) in debt as a means of forcing adoption of SDG-related policies. It is then little coincidence that many of the driving forces behind SDG-related policies, at the UN and elsewhere, are career bankers. Former executives at some of the most predatory financial institutions in the history of the world, from Goldman Sachs to Bank of America to Deutsche Bank, are among the top proponents and developers of SDG-related policies.
Are their interests truly aligned with “sustainable development” and improving the state of the world for regular people, as they now claim? Or do their interests lie where they always have, in a profit-driven economic model based on debt slavery and outright theft
Lilla’s discovery led him to make “Children Of The Vine,” an investigative documentary on Roundup and the pesticide’s impact on public health.
The film weaves together facts about Roundup, and its key active ingredient — glyphosate — with stories about people who developed cancer after using Roundup, scientists, lawyers and journalists working to end the use of Roundup, and farmers who do and those who don’t use the weedkiller.
Lilla is the documentary’s director, producer, publicist, writer and researcher.
The film’s title, “Children Of The Vine,” is a nod to the ’70s horror film, “Children of the Corn,” based on a short story by Stephen King.
“My wife says that ‘Children Of The Vine’ sounds like a horror film,” Lilla said. “I always tell her it is.”
Imagine a power outage and a financial crash at the same time in London, one of the world’s major financial centers. From 2nd Smartest Guy in the World at 2ndsmartestguyintheworld.substack.com:
As this substack has previously warned, PSYOP-POWER-GRID-OUTAGE will at some point be deployed to further reinforce and exacerbate the mass induced fear of the global populations.
The City of London, one of the most powerful One World Government Cult nodes along with the Vatican and the various other criminal organizations like the BIS, CRF, WEF, UN et al., is now leading the way in telegraphing and normalizing the “sudden” closure of financial institutions.
The warnings have always been that a global financial crisis will be confirmed when over the weekend the banks declare an emergency such that come Monday there would be a banking holiday with no one able to access their money.
London banks are now seeding this very scenario, cleverly leveraging PSYOP-UKRAINE-INVASION and PSYOP-SUPPLY-CHAIN-SHORTAGES (which includes energy) with PSYOP-CLIMATE-CHANGE for a perfect storm heading into this winter’s VAIDS pandemonium in PSYOP-22.
Once upon a time a lot of Ayn Rand oriented libertarians essentially assumed the “goodness” of business, and that it would never become an arm of the government. Obviously Big Tech these days destroys that illusion. From Jeffrey A. Tucker at brownstone.org:
The 1998 movie Enemy of the State starring Gene Hackman and Will Smith seemed like fiction at the time. Why I didn’t regard that movie – which still holds up in nearly every detail – as a warning I do not know. It pulls back the curtain on the close working relationship between national security agencies and the communications industry – spying, censorship, blackmailing, and worse. Today, it seems not just a warning but a description of reality.
There is no longer any doubt at all about the symbiotic relationship between Big Tech – the digital communications industry in particular – and government. The only issue we need to debate is which of the two sectors are more decisive in driving the loss of privacy, free speech, and liberty in general.
Not only that: I’ve been involved in many debates over the years, always taking the side of technology over those who warned of the coming dangers. I was a believer, a techno-utopian and could not see where this was headed.
The lockdowns were the great shock for me, not only for the unconscionably draconian policies imposed on the country so quickly. The shock was intensified by how all the top tech companies immediately enlisted in the war on freedom of association. Why? Some combination of industry ideology, which shifted over 30 years from a founding libertarian ethos to become a major force for techno-tyranny, plus industry self-interest (how better to promote digital media consumption than to force half the workforce to stay home?) were at work.
FDA “attention” to the vaccine injured is even less helpful than all those “we’re so sorry for your loss” that you hear at funerals. From Mary Beth Pfeiffer at rescue.substack.com:
“First do no harm” when people are suffering and dying doesn’t mean “Do nothing.” That’s therapeutic nihilism.
Twenty people who were harmed by covid-19 vaccines came to Washington D.C. this week—sick, bereaved, from a dozen states—seeking help from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
This is what they got: One hour with the top vaccine official in the United States—in a Zoom call to their hotel conference room.
Two had lost sons, 16 and 34 years old, soon after their shots. Three were in wheelchairs, including a girl of 14. A surgeon, a nurse practitioner, a teacher, and most others can no longer work. Once healthy and fit, many had been eager to be vaccinated.
“They were hiding behind a monitor,” said Brianne Dressen, 41, a Utah mother of two who was incapacitated in a vaccine trial for which she enthusiastically volunteered in November 2020. “All of us, we came out here, and Peter Marks could not get out of his house and meet with us.”
The virtual meeting, which I sat in on, was punctuated by FDA language that the attendees told me they had heard in five such meetings before, specifically about the connection between their suffering and covid vaccinations.
“The data is not sufficiently robust,” Dr. Peter Marks said repeatedly. “With these low rates, it’s very hard to know what you’re looking at.” The word “rare” was used, and, of course, the phrase “1 in a million.”
And then there was this: “That’s not to say we won’t continue to look.”
The controversy over vaccines has recently intensified in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, with calls from politicians, health professionals, journalists, and citizens to take harsh measures against so-called “anti-vaxxers,” while accusing them of spreading “fake news” and as such, of endangering public health. However, the issue of suppression of vaccine dissenters has rarely been studied from the point of view of those who raise concerns about vaccine safety.
The purpose of the present study was to examine the subjective perceptions of professionals (physicians, nurses, researchers) involved with vaccines through practice and/or research and who take a critical view on vaccines, about what they perceive as the suppression of dissent in the field of vaccines, their response to it, and its potential implications on science and medicine.
The Green Revolution may not have been all it’s cracked up to be. From Kristoffer Mousten Hansen at mises.org:
One of the key myths of the twentieth century is the benign role played by international, American-led institutions after the Second World War. American liberals/progressives, fresh from imposing the New Deal in the thirties and planning and directing a world war, turned their eyes to international affairs: the United States had a world historic mission of messianic proportions: lifting developing countries into modernity by remaking them (and all other countries, for that matter) in America’s own image.
The Cold War era was rife with projects and organizations to carry out this vision, from Bretton Woods and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the area of international finance to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in military affairs to the CIA-funded Congress for Cultural Freedom used to spread progressive, US-friendly propaganda. These organizations all had mainly deleterious influences—I have previously indicated how Bretton Woods and the modern international financial system can best be described as financial imperialism—but in one area American interventionism is to this day universally acclaimed as benign: the Green Revolution.
