Horowitz: They knew: FOIA document shows government anticipated mass vaccine injuries, then observed them from day one

So, the government knew the vaccines would kill us even before they started killing us. From Daniel Horowitz at

Nobody disagrees at this point that there is a plethora of excess deaths and a dearth of births, a trend that should be the number-one alarming public policy issue. Yet when any of us suggest that the gene therapy ubiquitously given to the world right around the time of the jump in these numbers might be responsible, people look at us like we are from Mars. However, it turns out, based on newly released FOIA documents from the CDC, that our government knew about and even anticipated massive reports of injuries from these shots from day one.

Throughout the past two years, the government and media have concocted a conspiracy theory that somehow the CDC’s own VAERS reporting is scammed with fraud by people who have nothing better to do with their lives but spend hours filling out fraudulent vaccine injury reports. They pretend it’s a sort of ex post facto anomaly that nobody expected and that has no credibility in their eyes. Except, as Hebrew University Professor Josh Guetzkow reveals, not only did the CDC know about the vaccine injuries blowing up VAERS at record levels (even before the general public had access to them), the agency contracted with defense contractor General Dynamics to handle the database in anticipation of record use. Then, when the vaccines were released, the CDC had to up the contract to account for even more entries, yet showed no moral qualms about continuing with the campaign without disclosing these revelations to the public.

“I Know Nothing, Nothing!” : The National Archives Just Torpedoed Biden’s Sgt. Schultz Defense, by Jonathan Turley

At least Sgt. Schultz was funny. The Bidens are just grifters, and there’s nothing funny about them. From Jonathan Turley at

For years, President Joe Biden has maintained a Sgt. Schultz defense to allegations that his family has profiteered on influence peddling with foreign countries and companies. Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Biden maintains that he “knows nothing, nothing” about Hunter Biden’s business deals. He recently doubled down on this defense by even denying that family members received money from foreign sources. He repeated his denial even after the release of financial transfer reports from his own administration showing millions transferred from China. Now, emails have emerged that show that Biden personally helped draft responses to the controversial deals in 2015 when he was Vice President. It also appears that Biden officials like former Biden Communications Director Kate Bedingfield knew of his role as the President continued to deny any involvement.

The National Archives has released emails that show that then-Vice President Joe Biden approved an official statement in December 2015 about Hunter Biden’s position on a Ukrainian energy company’s board.

Biden has denied any knowledge or involvement in these business dealings at least seven times as a presidential candidate and as president.

For years, the media has continued to report President Biden’s repeated claim that “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” At the outset, the media only had to suspend any disbelief that the president could fly to China as Vice President with his son on Air Force 2 without discussing his planned business dealings on the trip.

The Math Behind Deposit Insurance, And Why It’s The Beginning Of The End, by Tyler Durden

The math behind deposit insurance is dividing a large number (deposit liabilities) by a small number (insurance fund). From Tyler Durden at

As Simon White writes today, “a full guarantee of all bank deposits would spell the end of moral hazard disciplining banks and mark the final chapter of the dollar’s multi-decade debasement.” And yet that’s where we are headed, even if with a few hiccups along the way, because as White also notes, with the latest banking crisis in the US, it’s the clean-up that could end up doing far more lasting damage. That’s because with the failure of SVB et al prompted the FDIC to guarantee that all depositors will be made whole, whether insured or not

And so, the precedent is being set, with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen commenting on Tuesday that the US could repeat its actions if other banks became imperiled. She was referring to smaller lenders, and denied the next day that insurance would be “blanket”, but given the regulatory direction of travel over the last forty years, this will inevitability apply to any lender when push comes to shove.

Realizing it’s just a matter of time before the next systemic crisis tips the banking sector over, over the weekend, a coalition of midsize US banks asked federal regulators to extend FDIC deposit insurance for the next two years, so as to alleviate any fears which could result in a wider deposit run on regional and community banks.

But what would deposit insurance of all $18 trillion US deposits – not just the $11 or so trillion in deposits that are currently “insured” by the FDIC – look like? As BofA’s rates strategist Mark Cabana writes, deposit insurance has been a very effective solution to stabilize deposit outflows historically. Deposit insurance can be done in a variety of ways: (1) all domestic bank deposits; (2) increase coverage to a higher amount vs. the $250k currently.

Squatters Increasingly Taking Over Homes Across US With No End In Sight, Experts Warn, by Jack Phillips

It’s like something out of Dr. Zhivago, where the comrades take over his mansion. From Jack Phillips at The Epoch Times via

Amid an increase in reports of squatters taking over people’s homes across the country, one expert warned that the phenomenon is on the rise and noted that removing a squatter could take months.

Real estate lawyer Jim Burling told Fox News on Tuesday that any home that is not occupied for a period of time could be targeted by squatters. If the owner tries to call the police, officers may not be able to do much, and at the same time, using the courts could turn into a lengthy and expensive process, he warned.

I think it’s a fairly big problem and I think it’s pretty hard to avoid,” Burling, who is vice president of litigation for Pacific Legal Foundation, said. In cases where a property owner is attempting to evict a squatter, generally the court system has to get involved to determine whose paperwork is legitimate, he noted.

If somebody is living in a home and saying ‘hey, I signed a lease, I’m paying rent, I have a right to be here,’ whether or not that’s true, the police hear that story then they hear a story of somebody who’s not living there and saying ‘this is my place these people don’t belong here,’ the police officer can’t make that legal determination,” Burling said.

He added that it’s not the “job” of the police to do that. “That’s not their bailiwick. If you have that kind of dispute it has to go to court,” he said.

How Covid lockdowns primed the current financial crisis, by Christian Parenti

First came Covid, then came monetary inflation, then came higher interest rates, and then came a financial crash. From Christian Parenti at

The lockdowns and the stimulus required to keep the economy alive helped drive inflation. Then the Fed jacked up interest rates. And all hell broke loose.

On Friday March 10th, 2023, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) died of Covid. Alright, it’s a little more complicated than that, but Covid lockdowns followed by massive government stimulus were a critical – and massively under-acknowledged – factor in propelling the bank’s demise.

At the heart of the crisis is the gigantic pile of low-interest debt that was issued during the height of the pandemic. While private-sector pandemic-era debt like corporate bonds also soared, US government debt like Treasury bonds piled up.

In a nutshell, during the pandemic the government issued enormous amounts of extremely low interest government debt — about $4.2 trillion of it. But now interest rates, including on government debt, are higher than they have been in 15 years and investors are dumping their old low-interest debt. As they dump, the resale price of the old debt goes down. The more it declines, the more investors want to dump. And thus, a panic is born. 

To understand the problem fully, the question of US government debt has to be put into its larger context, which is: the pandemic response as a whole.

When news of the Covid virus first broke in December 2019, the 2 Year Treasury bond was being offered at 1.64% interest; the 10 year was at about 1.80%, and the resale value of such bonds on secondary markets was strong. Then, in March 2020, as Covid cases and deaths spiked, the US began to shutter its economy with panicked lockdowns that were supposed to “flatten the curve” or slow the spread of the virus and thus protect the hospitals. But Covid was politicized and the lockdowns were extended.

The Evil Intent of the Pledge of Allegiance, by Gary D. Barnett

You’ve got to do something to demonstrate your loyalty to the state. From Gary D. Barnett at

Southington, Connecticut school children pledge their allegiance to the flag, in May 1942.

“Rex Curry is the historian who revealed amazing discoveries including (1) that the USA’s Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior adopted later in Germany under Hitler’s socialism, and (2) that the so-called “swastika” symbol was used to represent “S” letter shapes for “SOCIALISM” under Hitler.”

It has pleased me greatly to see the recent headlines and articles lambasting the horrible “Pledge of Allegiance.” It is about time. This is beside the fact that many of the reasons given for abandoning these nation-state glorification (socialist) testimonials, are incorrect, based on some ‘woke’ agenda, or some non-thinking collective nonsense. No one should ever have said any evil pledge to any nation or country, or sang any ‘national’ anthem meant as worship of the State. The fact that this is demanded of children from almost infancy to adult is no accident, as it takes time to indoctrinate, and make compliant an entire society.

Jacob Hornberger’s recent article, “The Pledge of Allegiance and Government Schools,” was well done, and explained some of the history of the heinous pledge, but I think it is very important to concentrate on why most adults still stand at attention at every single demand to say the pledge or sing the national anthem. The children mostly comply because they have been taught to do so almost since birth,  this due to being exposed to heinous government schooling (total indoctrination)  that only exists in order to harm and brainwash by promoting State worship and obedience.

A Poisoned Broth, by Bill Bonner

“Double, double, toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble.” That’s what Shakespeare had to say about the banking crises. From Bill Bonner at

(Source: Getty Images)

Bill Bonner, reckoning today from San Martin, Argentina…

“Would I say there will never, ever be another financial crisis? You know probably that would be going too far but I do think we’re much safer and I hope that it will not be in our lifetimes and I don’t believe it will be.”

~ Janet Yellen, June 20, 2017

According to a recent study, the US banking system – heavily regulated by Janet Yellen, her forerunners and successors – faces huge losses.    

We are not experts in banking, but we think we understand the basic model. Banks take in cash from depositors and ‘lend’ it out or ‘invest’ it. The depositors can ask for their money back at any time. But the loans and investments only come back when they are ready. Between the two time periods, long and short, the banks can get squeezed…if depositors suddenly want their money back. Central banks were set up to prevent it. In a crisis, they provide solvent banks with liquidity.

But what if the banks aren’t solvent? What if their ‘assets’ – loans and investments – go down? What if they loaned out money at 3% interest…and then interest rates go up to 5%? What if their investments – say in Amazon or Rivian – lose so much money that they can never give depositors back their money?

Broke and Broken

Here’s the money line from academic researchers Erica Jiang, Gregor Matvos, Tomasz Piskorski and Amit Seru:

The U.S. banking system’s market value of assets is $2 trillion lower than suggested by their book value of assets.

The net worth (book value) of the entire US banking industry is only $2.1 trillion. Which means, the whole banking system is already nearly insolvent. Busted. Broke.  You can imagine what would happen if stocks went down another 10%…20%….or 40%. There would be Hell to pay.

No one would suggest subsidizing plumbers who install leaky pipes, nor providing grants for restaurants that make customers sick…but those groups don’t have lobbyists!

central bank digital currencies and banking crises, by el gato malo

A banking crisis will be the new Covid, and central bank digital currencies will be the new vaccine. From el gato malo at

how do you get people to leave banks for a CBDC?

longtime gatopal™ jordan schachtel published a very useful piece on the impending shot at central bank digital currencies in the US.

you should read it.

Americans face a rapidly encroaching ’emergency’ CBDC power grab

The American financial system is threatening to come apart at the seams, and for the people who control the levers of power, the only way to patch things up may involve the installation of a monetary Social Credit Score system. In recent years, America’s fiat fractional reserve system has transformed into a faith-based credit system, and the people who …

jordan lays out the risks and threats of a CBDC. in a nutshell, this is government digital currency. this means they really, truly control the money. it means they can take it right out of your account or fine tune what you are allowed to do with it.

it means they can decide if you are allowed to spend it and on what.

it means they will have instant knowledge of all your transactions.

it’s the end of privacy and agency.

it’s not just a bad idea.

it’s a true blue, no fooling around, weapons grade bad idea.

and it looks to be coming.

Why Are Conservatives So Stupid? By A.J. Smuskiewicz

The big problem with the January 6 “insurrection” was that it wasn’t an insurrection. From A.J. Smuskiewicz at

So, the past few years of America’s dark descent have come down to this? After the manufactured hysteria and authoritarian power grabs of COVID, after the fraudulent presidential election of 2020, amid the continuing persecution of hundreds of January 6 protestors, and amid the continuing censorship, warmongering, political and financial corruption, racial and gender obsessions, and ubiquitous, insidious cultural rot that have wrecked the American family, society, standard of living, democratic system, and global reputation—after all that, now we reportedly are going to have the bogus, politically motivated arrest of a populist former president of the United States that the leftist, globalist, corporatist establishment despises? Even if Trump’s arrest does not happen, the mere serious consideration of it by a real-criminal-coddling left-wing black DA is bad enough.

What does all this mean? From my perspective as a lower-middle-class, old, straight, white guy who longs for the lost, freer times of the 1970s, it means that the United States of America is now just about as dead as George Washington’s corpse. The U.S. Constitution is gone, flushed down the toilet and decaying in some stinking sewer, never again to see the light of day. The world-renowned political, economic, and cultural capitals of American decadence—in Washington, New York, and Hollywood—are extraordinarily happy, because they have decisively achieved victory!

This is what we have come to, in my estimation. And while the leftists and—very inappropriately named—“liberals” have been carefully, methodically, strategically, deviously, and intelligently orchestrating all of these dastardly and destructive deeds—beginning many decades ago—the self-proclaimed, so-called “conservatives,” “libertarians,” “patriots,” and “freedom lovers” have watched it unfold in front of their eyes and stupidly and compliantly allowed it all to happen. Why?

There She Goes . . ., by Eric Peters

GM has been Government Motors since 2009. From Eric Peters at

Two big announcements this week and one of them has nothing to do with the pending indictment and frog-marching of the Orange Man.

Here’s the other:

GM has just officially announced the end of the line for Camaro – again.

This has of, course, happened before. Most recently in 2002, after which there was no Camaro for the next eight years – until a reboot in 2010. And prior to that, in 1975, when there was almost no Camaro because there was no Z28 for the next two years, until 1977 – when the Z28 returned.

But this time, the end is likely to be forever.

At least insofar as what the Camaro is – and has been. The name will apparently be rebooted and affixed to – God help us – an electric crossover SUV, a la the Ford Mach e “Mustang.” But unlike Ford, which just launched an all-new Mustang that is defiantly not battery powered, GM intends to launch nothing except battery-powered appliances going forward.

This is what comes of getting “bailed out” by the government. It means getting bought out by the government.

It means getting owned.

That’s what GM has been since the bankruptcy-bailouts of 2009. Yes, the loans were paid back. But there was interest, so to speak. It came in the form of changing the company’s priorities as well as its management. In a free-market schema these would be salutary palliatives, much like someone obese confronted by the early symptoms of diabetes taking the decision to stop eating too much of the wrong foods.
