Woody Harrelson Doubles Down, Slams COVID Mandates: US Is “Not A Free Country, by Steve Watson

Will Woody Harrelson ever land another acting gig? From Steve Watson at

“I don’t feel that we should have forced testing, forced masking and forced vaccination”

Following a 30 second bit on SNL where he branded big pharma as a ‘cartel’ forcing it’s drugs on people with government consent, actor Woody Harrelson has further spoken out against COVID mandates.

In an interview with the New York Times, Harrelson warned that America is no longer a free country, branding COVID protocols as “rather absurd.”

When asked what was “absurd about the COVID protocols,” Harrelson replied, “The fact that they’re still going on!”

“I don’t think that anybody should have the right to demand that you’re forced to do the testing, forced to wear the mask and forced to get vaccinated three years on,” the Zombieland star asserted.

Have the Ancient Gods Returned? By Dr. Naomi Wolf

Why all the Satanic symbols and rituals the last few years? From Dr. Naomi Wolf at

Is a Seemingly Far-Fetched Premise, Unfolding After All?

These days, to my surprise, people want to talk to me about evil.

In a Substack essay last year, and in my book The Bodies of Others, I raised a question about existential, metaphysical darkness.

I concluded that I had looked at the events of the past two and a half years using all of my classical education, my critical thinking skills, my knowledge of Western and global history and politics; and that, using these tools, I could not explain the years 2020-present.

Indeed I could not explain them in ordinary material, political or historical terms at all.

This is not how human history ordinarily operates.

I could not explain the way the Western world simply switched, from being based at least overtly on values of human rights and decency, to values of death, exclusion and hatred, overnight, en masse — without resorting to reference to some metaphysical evil that goes above and beyond fallible, blundering human agency.

When ordinary would-be-tyrants try to take over societies, there is always some flaw, some human impulse undoing the headlong rush toward a negative goal. There are always factions, or rogue lieutenants, in ordinary human history; there is always a miscalculation, or a blunder, or a security breach; or differences of opinion at the top. Mussolini’s power was impaired in his entry to the Second World War by being forced to share the role of military commander with King Victor Immanuel []; Hitler miscalculated his ability to master the Russian weather — right down to overlooking how badly his soldiers’ stylish but flimsy uniforms would stand up to extreme cold. []. Before he could mount a counter-revolution against Stalinism, Leon Trotsky was assassinated in Mexico City in his bath. []

Netflix and . . . GM? By Eric Peters

Both companies now specialize in turning out woke, green products and ideologies. From Eric Peters at

Try to imagine the famous chase scenes in Bullitt or the French Connection running silent. Burt Reynolds quietly backing up the black and gold “Bandit” Trans-Am out of the semi, without the sound of the 6.6 liter Pontiac V8 accompanying. Not hearing the tire-chirping first-to-second gear change after he picks up Sally Field, either. 

Well, if you can’t, don’t worry. You’ll soon be seeing it. 

If you’re watching it.

GM – which is no longer an American car company but rather a “global company focused on advancing an all-electric future that is inclusive and accessible to all” – has partnered with another purveyor of Wokeness, Netflix, to “give electric vehicles (EVs) the stage they deserve, reflecting society’s increasing excitement about an all-electric future.”

Steven Spielberg and the Other Unsmart Coronamaniacs, by Mark Oshinskie

Just because you’re supposedly smart doesn’t mean you think for yourself. From Mark Oshinskie at

In America, being perceived as smart confers social status. Nearly everyone sees themselves as smart. Those who think they’re smart want to control those whom they view as less smart. Many want to be governed by those whom they perceive as smart. Nonetheless, Joe Biden is President. And most governors and all living ex-presidents shilled for the jabs.

How can we determine who’s truly smart?

One way is to stage a public health emergency and see how people react. During the past three years, tens of millions of people—many of whom had college degrees—have demonstrated that they were very unsmart by aggressively supporting lockdowns, school closures, mass asymptomatic testing and mask and “vaccine” mandates. These measures were all downside, with no upside. The failure of, and damage caused by, each was plainly foreseeable.

Many who opposed the extreme Covid overreaction have said that they knew some smart people who fell for the craziness.

Yesterday, for example, I heard two radio talk show hosts discuss Steven Spielberg’s reaction to Covid. They postulated that Spielberg is very smart because many people have paid to watch his movies. Then they played an audio clip in which Spielberg said, when 250,000 people were said to have died of Covid, he thought Covid was “an extinction level event.” Using wildly overstated, official death figures, the US is said to have crossed the 250,000 death threshold in mid-November, 2020.

Anarchy, American-Style, by Victor Davis Hanson

The left has become the establishment it once supposedly despised. From Victor Davis Hanson at

The Left runs Oceania, and we work for their various bureaus.

The 1960s revolution was both anarchic and nihilist. But it was waged against—not from—the establishment. Hippies and the Left either attacked institutions or, in Timothy Leary fashion, chose to “turn on, tune in, drop out” from them.

The current revolution is much different—and far more dangerous—for at least three reasons.

The Establishment Is the Revolution

The current Left has no intention of “dropping out.” Why would it?

It now controls the very institutions of America that it once mocked and attacked—corporate boardrooms, Wall Street, state and local prosecuting attorneys, most big-city governments, the media, the Pentagon, network and most of cable news, professional sports, Hollywood, music, television, K-12 education, and academia.

In other words, the greatest levers of influence and power—money, education, entertainment, government, the news, and popular culture—are in the hands of the Left. They have transformed legitimate debate over gay marriage into a hate crime. Transgenderism went from a modern manifestation of ancient transvestism or gender dysphoria to a veritable litmus test of whether one was good or evil.

Students have no need to jam administrators’ offices because the latter, themselves, are as radical as the protestors and often lead them on in a top-down fashion. Had they not long ago demonstrated they were perfectly willing to subvert meritocracy, free expression, and equality under the law, they would not be occupying their present positions.

Apple, Google, Facebook, and other tech companies are not 1980s and 1990s “alternative” media geeks and hipsters creating neat gadgets for the people. They are not Steve Jobs and his pugnacious Apple battling the evil Microsoft or IBM, or the Macintosh commercial of 1984 depicting a maverick throwing a hammer into Big Brother’s screen. They are the Orwellian screen.

Foretelling the Future

The Season Finale Of The Hit Show ‘Proxy War’, by Caitlin Johnstone

Why not make Zelensky Time’s person of the year? Barack Obama got a Nobel Peace Prize and rumor has it that Fauci is up for the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Caitlin Johnstone lets the sarcasm fly at

Everyone’s talking about the hit series Proxy War, an astronomically high-budget production based on an actual military conflict whose season finale is set to air this month.

Promotional materials for the episode hint at a heartwarming season wrap-up that’s sure to make wholesome viewing for the whole family, with series star Volodymyr Zelensky being awarded 2022 Person of the Year by Time Magazine.

This will cap off a wild first season which has seen our hero appear on the cover of Vogue, deliver speeches for the World Economic Forum, the New York Stock Exchange, the Grammy Awards and numerous film festivals, as well as having high-profile meetings with celebrity actors and rock stars.

I Don’t Want A Sci-Fi Future, by Caitlin Johnstone

It’s easier to fantasize about the future than it is to live, really live, in the present. From Caitlin Johnstone at

I don’t desire a future for humanity like the ones imagined by our culturally designated future-imaginers. I don’t want humans living in Elon Musk Mars colonies or Jeff Bezos space cylinders. I don’t want us to fly out into the stars, to disappear into virtual reality universes, or to move away from our humanness by becoming cybernetic organisms.

Not yet anyway. Not for a long time. Not until we’ve done what we need to do here first.

Have you ever noticed that most books, shows and movies set in the future tend to depict a humanity that’s more technologically advanced than our own, but thinks and behaves in basically the same way? In the average sci-fi story people are still waging wars, still fighting, conquering, subjugating, toiling and surviving just like today, except they’re doing it out in space surrounded by a bunch of aliens (who are also oddly entangled in the same egoic patternings as humans in the 21st century).

In this common vision for the future, we have mastered space travel but still haven’t mastered basic psychological health. Our technology has enabled us to kill, enslave, manipulate and exploit among the stars so that we are no longer confined to killing, enslaving, manipulating and exploiting down here.

Get Woke, Go Broke: Disney To Lay Off Employees After Billions In Operating Losses, by Tyler Durden

The once iconic company has debased its product and insulted its core audience. It may never come back. From Tyler Durden at

The company that once defined family entertainment is going from media giant to epic failure, suffering over $1.4 billion in streaming losses and a stock drop of around 39% for the year.  And, it would appear that these financial declines are inevitably leading to employee layoffs.

Disney has put a freeze on hiring, it is limited employee travel and is also reviewing workers for efficiency with plans to introduce cuts as a means to make the company “more nimble.”  CEO Bob Chapek noted in a leaked memo to senior staff:

“As we work through this evaluation process, we will look at every avenue of operations and labor to find savings, and we do anticipate some staff reductions as part of this review.

…I am fully aware this will be a difficult process for many of you and your teams. We are going to have to make tough and uncomfortable decisions.”

Chapek mentions in the same memo the problem of “macroeconomic factors” out of Disney’s control.  He does not, however, mention his habit of bending the knee and groveling to woke activists, attempting to sabotage Florida’s anti-grooming legislation for public schools, or the company’s steady supply of content that pushes far-left narratives.
