It’s Now Crucial to Understand What We’re Up Against, by Dr. Joseph Mercola

We’re up against a global push for technocratic totalitarianism. From Dr. Joseph Mercola at theburningplatform.com:

Story at-a-glance

  • It’s become absolutely crucial to understand what we’re up against, globally, and who’s responsible for the rising totalitarianism and their ultimate intention
  • The COVID pandemic was a coup d’état by the technocratic cabal that is behind the global takeover agenda, referred to as The Great Reset
  • The Great Reset was introduced by the World Economic Forum, which is tightly coupled to the United Nations and the World Health Organization. Their agenda is to implement a global type of totalitarianism based on technocratic and transhumanist ideologies. Part of that plan also includes reengineering and controlling all life forms, including humans
  • While the outward expression of technocracy will appear as totalitarianism, the control center is not an individual. Rather than a single person ruling by the decree, technocracy relies on control through technology and algorithm. This is a very important difference. In short, there will be no individual to blame or hold accountable. The “dictator” is an algorithm

birx had a tough day in congress, by el gato malo

Questions are finally being asked of those who said their writ was unquestionable. Of course the evasions and lies are piling up, but at least the questions are being asked. Never underestimate the power of a question. From el gato malo at boriquagato.substack.com:

“hope” is no basis for health mandates or treatment policy

leaders do not, mostly, lead. they follow the public mood. and as that mood is shifting, it’s becoming OK to ask the pointy questions and start getting to the bottom of things.

debbie had a tough outing here and gets pinned on a simple and vital issue:

when public health officials and agencies stridently told america that the covid vaccines would be a “dead end for the virus” and stop infection and spread, upon what did they base that claim and how did they get it so wrong?

once jordan gets a hold of her, this is like a tuna filled piñata in a tiger cage.

When Believing the Health Authorities Requires Denying Obvious Realities, by Thorsteinn Siglaugsson

Belief in the face of mountainous evidence to the contrary is the hallmark of a cult. From Thorsteinn Siglaugsson at brownstone.org:

Believing the Health Authorities Requires Denying Obvious Realities

This weekend The Daily Sceptic published two articles reviewing some studies purported to show Covid-19 vaccines are useful for countering so-called long-covid, lingering symptoms after Covid infection. The conclusion of the author, who is an ex-senior scientist with the UK government, is that the vaccinations do not in fact prevent those symptoms.

In addition one of the studies he quotes shows a great increase in health-related problems resulting from vaccination, which the authors seem to have tried to bury.

The interesting thing here is how we have, over the course of 18 months, moved from eagerly awaiting vaccines that would eradicate Covid-19 by providing herd immunity, towards failed attempts at showing that at least those vaccines prevent long-term health issues among those who catch the disease and fall ill with it, the disease they wouldn’t have caught, let alone fallen ill with, had the vaccines worked as promised.

At the same time, more and more data from all over the world show how the vaccine rollout is in fact correlated with a large spike in excess mortality. The only hope seems to be the adenovirus vaccines, the use of which was discontinued in most countries in favour of the mRNA vaccines. That may have been a premature decision, as contrary to the mRNA vaccines, they seem to lower excess mortality.

The European Union Is Again Close To A Meltdown, by Bruce Wilds

Europe is looking at an ugly combination of rising prices, a faltering euro, contracting economies, and they’re taking their biggest supplier of energy off-line. From Bruce Wilds at brucewilds.blogspot.com:

The Ukraine conflict is taking a toll on the Euro-zone and it could result in finally pushing it over the edge. Everything flowing from Russia’s incursion poses a big negative for the region which is already struggling. When you couple soaring energy prices with stagnate growth and a growing trade balance with China you have the recipe for disaster. This is also apparent on the inflation front.

According to Reuters, the Euro-zone inflation rate surged to yet another record high in May. Inflation accelerated to 8.1% in May from 7.4% in April. A big part of the problem is that  it is no longer just energy pulling up the headline figure. Looking past the headline figure, we find excluding food and energy prices, inflation rose to 4.4% year-on-year from 3.9%. This puts pressure on the European Central Bank to increase rates further. The timing of such a move is horrible in that Europe’s dust-up with Russia has brought to the forefront just how weak Europe is.

JOHN KIRIAKOU: Robbed by Law Enforcement

This will set your blood aboiling. From John Kiriakou at consortiumnews.com:

People who have never even been charged with a crime can have their life savings taken away. That’s civil asset forfeiture.

I am a fan of bad television.  I admit it.  I even DVR it.  I watch an awful show on the National Geographic Channel every week about Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and how they intercept drugs and birds and food and other contraband from people arriving from abroad into the airports of New York, Atlanta and Miami.

I was watching an episode this week where an elderly Korean man arrived at JFK airport in New York with a few hundred dollars in his pocket.

For no apparent reason, he was pulled into secondary for a more comprehensive search.  When the CBP officer went through the man’s wallet, he found four cashier’s checks, dated years earlier, that totaled $136,000.  The man said that it was his life savings, he had been carrying it around for years, and that he had forgotten that the checks were on him.

Tough luck, CBP said.  The money belongs to the government now.  That’s civil asset forfeiture.

The man was never charged with a crime.  But he still loses his life savings.  That’s the way we do things in the United States.

We Must Never Forget, by Thorsteinn Siglaugsson

Thorsteinn Siglaugsson makes a persuasive case that the truth about Covid and the vaccines will win out, and is in fact already winning out. To his credit he caught on very early. From Siglaugsson at brownstone.org:

According to the UN, lockdowns are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of children in the Third World. The disruption from school closures is leading to devastating outcomes for children. And as studies already show, lockdowns hardly had any effect on deaths from Covid-19, while they are surely to a large part responsible for the spike in excess deaths from other causes.

Now, when the attempts at slowing or stopping the spread of the virus, either through lockdowns or vaccination have failed, and it has become endemic, it is time to move on. But it is not time to forget. For if we forget we are in a danger of repeating this horrifying experiment.

In short, the situation is this: Information about the failure of lockdowns is slowly emerging. More and more information on the catastrophes caused by them is leaking out, even making it into the mainstream media now. People are starting to feel on their own skin the economic consequences and attempts at pinning all that on the war in Ukraine are doomed to fail.

Even if the majority of the vaccinated may still hang on to their belief that the vaccination did something for them, the spiking excess mortality and the obvious failure of the vaccines to prevent transmission are really too clear to be denied. And now it even turns out the original claims of efficacy were based on a falsification of data.

At the same time, most people have become complicit in the lockdown and vaccination narrative. They have repeated the mantras so often they themselves have become stakeholders; it is now their narrative also, which means changing opinion is difficult. It is hard to admit having been fooled, especially when you‘ve taken an active part in fooling others also. And if you‘ve been active in ostracizing your unvaccinated friends and relatives, there may even be no way back for you.

Blue and Red Do Have Something in Common. They’ve Both Been Ripped Off, Repeatedly, by Matt Taibbi

When the same people always win the game, the game is fixed. From Matt Taibbi at taibbi.substack.com:

Our “transitory” inflation disaster and looming market crash mimic past bubble disasters, which all had the same feature: a few insiders won, and everyone else got creamed

“Putin’s hiking prices right now, from under this lectern!”

Good, honest, hardworking people, white collar, blue collar. Doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on… People of modest means continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you… It’s called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it. — George Carlin

On June 14th, in Philadelphia, President Joe Biden gave a speech before leaders of the AFL-CIO. This is the role Joe Biden was hired to play, the hardscrabble “Scranton Joe” persona who gets the common working person. He addressed an issue very much on the minds of ordinary folk:

I’m doing everything in my power to blunt Putin’s gas price hike.  Just since he invaded Ukraine, it’s gone up $1.74 a gallon — because of nothing else but that.

This followed remarks he’d made in Los Angeles a week before, at the 9th Summit of the Americas:

The COVID-19 pandemic hit our region particularly hard… Twenty-two million more people fell into poverty in just the first year of the pandemic. Inequity continues to rise. Global [inflationary] pressures… made worse by Putin’s brutal and unprovoked war against Ukraine… are making it harder for families to make ends meet. 

Watching Biden on the stump these days is heartbreaking. He combines Ron Burgundy-style slapstick teleprompter-dependence (one half expects him to end a speech soon with “Go fuck yourself, San Diego”) with the terror of a man who can see the bright light coming. Both effects are worsened by the fact that he’s peddling an insane, indefensible lie, i.e. that America is suffering through “Putin price hikes,” and not the inevitable consequence of yet another transparent state-aided ripoff scheme to soak the middle and lower classes on behalf of the 1%.

Covid Rivals All the Horrors of History, and Now “We Have a Nation to Rebuild and a World to Save.” By Peter and Ginger Breggin

To rebuilt a nation and save the world is going to require integrity, courage, and moral clarity, all of which the Covid travesty revealed to be in short supply. From Peter and Ginger Breggin at rescue.substack.com:

An investigative journalist-author weeps for the pandemic’s genocidal corruption by U.S. and world governments she exposed, but says, “Where there is life, there is hope.”

Statue of Liberty - Lady Liberty Painting by Patricia Awapara | Fine Art  America
Statue of Liberty – Lady Liberty is a painting by Patricia Awapara, a Peruvian-born American artist who paints by allowing herself to “let go and trust my intuition,” she says. “If all comes together, the result is an artwork that surprises me, filled with exciting and contrasting hues, saturated with joy and free-flowing essence that elevates my Spirit. My purpose is to ignite positive emotions, not only within me, but also in anyone who comes across my work.” 

Definition of cognitive dissonance: psychological conflict resulting from incongruous beliefs and attitudes held simultaneously.

When I walked our two dogs today, the sun was shining. There is a robin nesting on top of our porch light, right outside our front door. Half of a vivid turquoise eggshell lies below the nest, and I’ve seen a parent arrive with a fat green grub for a newly hatched baby. Fluffy white clouds—the products of our nearby Finger Lakes—float across the blue sky.

What is in front of my eyes is utterly normal. This glowing scene brings a surge of memories. Picnics and walking barefoot on the lawn. Fourth of July celebrations and the sun warming my head like a benediction. Children chasing bubbles with dogs running joyfully through the green grass.

Meanwhile, awareness of danger and the knowledge I carry are churning in my mind. I look at this gorgeous summer day, and tears spring to my eyes. I have spent the last two and a half years trying to look around the next corner by synthesizing and analyzing all the data I can gather, from the science, medicine, psychology, economics, human behavior, history, cultural norms, current events, and the crowdsourcing of social media and through consumption of the evaluations and analyses pouring forth from minds greater than mine, through books, reports, research, Substacks, interviews, presentations, and media events.

Chris Hedges: The Triumph of Death

Our would be rulers will bestow serfdom on us . . . and genocide. From Chris Hedges at consortiumnews.com:

The global ruling class is cementing into place a world where they govern without accountability, we are reduced to serfdom, the climate crisis accelerates and mass death is normalized.

Original illustration by Mr. Fish — “The Four Horseman.”

It is hard to be sanguine about the future.

The breakdown of the ecosystem is well documented. So is the refusal of the global ruling elite to pursue measures that might mitigate the devastation.

We accelerate the extraction of fossil fuels, wallow in profligate consumption, including our consumption of livestock and make new wars as if we are gripped by a Freudian death wish.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse — Conquest, War, Famine and Death — gallop into the 21rst century.

Those who rule, servants of corporations and the global billionaire class, accompany the suicidal folly by cementing into place corporate tyranny. The plan is not to reform. It is to perpetuate the corporate pillage.

This pillage, more and more onerous for the global population, necessitates a new totalitarianism, one where the billionaire class lives in opulence, workers are serfs, rights such as privacy and due process are abolished, Big Brother watches us all the time, war is the chief business of the state, dissent is criminalized and those displaced by conflicts and climate breakdown are barred entry into the climate fortresses in the global north.

Portions of the human species, the most privileged, will, in theory, hold out a little longer before they succumb to the great die off.

The Lethality of the Global Monroe Doctrine, by Vijay Prashad

Like balding old guys who compensate by growing beards and mustaches, the U.S. is trying to make up in military power what it’s losing in economic power. From Vijay Prashad at consortiumnews.com:

From its attacks on Global South countries to its willingness to go to war with a great power such as Russia, the U.S. is increasingly employing military force to compensate for its economic decline, writes Vijay Prashad.

LeRoy Clarke, Trinidad and Tobago, “Now,” 1970.

This month, as part of its policy to dominate the American hemisphere, the United States government organized the 9th Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.

U.S. President Joe Biden made it clear early on that three countries in the hemisphere — Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela — would not be invited to the event, claiming that they are not democracies.

At the same time, Biden was reportedly planning a visit to Saudi Arabia – a self-described theocracy. Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador questioned the legitimacy of Biden’s exclusionary stance, and so Mexico, Bolivia, and Honduras refused to come to the event. As it turned out, the summit was a fiasco.

Down the road, over a hundred organizations hosted a People’s Summit for Democracy, where thousands of people from across the hemisphere gathered to celebrate the actual democratic spirit which emerges from the struggles of peasants and workers, students and feminists, and all the people who are excluded from the gaze of the powerful.

At this gathering, the presidents of Cuba and Venezuela joined in online to celebrate this festival of democracy and to condemn the weaponization of democratic ideals by the United States and its allies.

Next year, 2023, will be the bicentennial of the Monroe Doctrine, when the U.S. asserted its hegemony over the American hemisphere. The malign spirit of the Monroe Doctrine not only continues but has now been extended by the U.S. government into a kind of Global Monroe Doctrine.
