The Great Reset: How a ‘Managerial Revolution’ Was Plotted 80 Years Ago by a Trotskyist-turned-CIA Neocon, by Cynthia Chung

James Burnham may be one of those names you’ve heard but don’t really have much of an idea who he was. He’s an important intellectual figure, in the same way Karl Marx is. From Cynthia Chung at strategic-culture.org:

The roots of the Great Reset agenda can very clearly be traced back to 80 years ago, when James Burnham, wrote a book on his vision for “The Managerial Revolution,” Cynthia Chung writes.

Klaus Schwab, the architect of the World Economic Forum (f. 1971), a leading, if not the leading, influencer and funder for what will set the course for world economic policy outside of government, has been the cause of much concern and suspicion since his announcement of “The Great Reset” agenda at the 50th annual meeting of the WEF in June 2020.

The Great Reset initiative is a somewhat vague call for the need for global stakeholders to coordinate a simultaneous “management” of the effects of COVID-19 on the global economy, which they have eerily named as “pandenomics.” This, we are told will be the new normal, the new reality that we will have to adjust ourselves to for the foreseeable future.

It should be known that at nearly its inception, the World Economic Forum had aligned itself with the Club of Rome, a think tank with an elite membership, founded in 1968, to address the problems of mankind. It was concluded by the Club of Rome in their extremely influential “Limits to Growth,” published in 1972, that such problems could not be solved on their own terms and that all were interrelated. In 1991, Club of Rome co-founder Sir Alexander King stated in the “The First Global Revolution” (an assessment of the first 30 years of the Club of Rome) that:

“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself.[emphasis added]

It is no surprise that with such a conclusion, part of the solution prescribed was the need for population control.

The Indictment of Hillary’s Clint’s Lawyer Is an Indictment of the Russiagate Win of U.S. Media, by Glenn Greenwald

The Russiagate concoction did irreparable harm to Trump’s presidency and to the nation as a whole. From Glenn Greenwald at greenwald.substack.com:

The DOJ’s new charging document, approved by Biden’s Attorney General, sheds bright light onto the Russiagate fraud and how journalistic corruption was key.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes gives credence to the fraudulent Trump/Afla-Bank story on Oct. 9, 2018, along with the two reporters who must aggressively pushed the hoax: The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer (then at Slate) and Natasha Bertrand (now at CNN).

A lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign was indicted on Wednesday with one felony count of lying to the FBI about a fraudulent Russiagate story he helped propagate. Michael Sussman was charged with the crime by Special Counsel John Durham, who was appointed by Trump Attorney General William Barr to investigate possible crimes committed as part of the Russiagate investigation and whose work is now overseen and approved by Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Sussman’s indictment, approved by Garland, is the second allegation of criminal impropriety regarding Russiagate’s origins. In January, Durham secured a guilty plea from an FBI agent, Kevin Clinesmith, for lying to the FISA court and submitting an altered email in order to spy on former Trump campaign official Carter Page.

The law firm where Sussman is a partner, Perkins Coie, is a major player in Democratic Party politics. One of its partners at the time of the alleged crime, Marc Elias, has become a liberal social media star after having served as General Counsel to the Clinton 2016 campaign. Elias abruptly announced that he was leaving the firm three weeks ago, and thus far no charges have been filed against him.

The lie that Sussman allegedly told the FBI occurred in the context of his mid-2016 attempt to spread a completely fictitious story: that there was a “secret server” discovered by unnamed internet experts that allowed the Trump organization to communicate with Russia-based Alfa Bank. In the context of the 2016 election, in which the Clinton campaign had elevated Trump’s alleged ties to the Kremlin to center stage, this secret communication channel was peddled by Sussman — both to the FBI and to Clinton-friendly journalists — as smoking-gun proof of nefarious activities between Trump and the Russians. Less than two months prior to the 2016 election, Sussman secured a meeting at the FBI’s headquarters with the Bureau’s top lawyer, James Baker, and provided him data which he claimed proved this communication channel.

Hospital Stops Delivering Babies Because Staff Quit Over Vaccine Mandate, by Simon Black

Simon Black’s weekly chronicle of the absurd. From Black at sovereignman.com:

Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

Hospital Stops Delivering Babies Because Staff Quit Over Vaccine Mandate

Lewis County General Hospital in the State of New York announced it will stop delivering babies after September 24.

No, they aren’t overwhelmed by COVID patients. It’s because too many maternity unit workers have resigned in protest of vaccine mandates.

In August, New York issued a decree that all health workers must be vaccinated by September 27.

A total of 165 hospital employees, a full 27% of the staff are not vaccinated against COVID-19.

So far 30 have resigned, which includes six employees in the maternity unit, plus another seven unvaccinated maternity workers possibly being pushed out before the vaccination deadline.

Last year they were front line heroes in the fight against COVID. This year they are social outcasts, discriminated against by employers and the government because of a personal health decision.

These are health professionals— you’d think people would respect their expert opinions on personal health.

Rutgers Bans Unvaccinated Student From ONLINE Classes

After Rutgers University required all students returning to campus to be vaccinated, a student opted to take all online classes.

As a healthy 22 year old who works out, Logan Hollar is in an extremely low risk category for severe COVID, and in the highest risk category to suffer the serious side effects of Myocarditis and Pericarditis— enlargement of the heart.

ICs for Uncle, by Eric Peters

Drive as they say, not as they drive. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Internal combustion-powered vehicles aren’t going away. They are being taken away – from us. But not from them – the ones taking them away from us.

Those people – government people – will continue to drive (or be driven around in) the gas-guzzliest internal combustion-powered vehicles conceivable – a literal handful of specially built Chevy Suburbans designed for the elite.

The latter being a misnomer – as is almost axiomatically the case with anything having to do with government.

They are “elite” in the sense of being a few, certainly. But they are not elite in the sense that Jefferson meant – as regards talent. Assuming you exclude their relentless, pathological urge to control others and their olympian cognitive dissonance as regards what they say vs. what they do.

Especially to us.

As they are doing with regard to forcing us into electric cars – while they are driven around in heavily armored and V8-combustion-engine-powered Suburbans, like the ones that will be built for them per the $36.4 million contract just awarded to Government Motors toward that end. The “carbon footprint” of these full-sized SUVs will be almost as big as their price tag. The contract specifies that 200 be built annually, beginning in 2023, through 2032.

Horowitz: Heavily vaccinated state accounts for 65% of India’s COVID cases after rejecting ivermectin

This is just not supposed to be happening. Consequently, most people aren’t going to hear about it. From Daniel Horowitz at theblaze.com:

The Indian state of Kerala has 3% of India’s population, and 67% of its inhabitants have at least one vaccination. One would expect Kerala’s COVID cases to be so low as to be invisible in a chart of India’s very low overall cases. Yet this state of just 33 million people accounted for 65% of all of India’s cases on Thursday, and even more in recent weeks. It has essentially been the only state experiencing a surge in recent months. It also happens to be the Indian state that has rejected ivermectin.

I have written several columns on the miracle of Uttar Pradesh, India’s largest state, which has essentially eradicated COVID with the universal use of ivermectin. In general, most of India experienced very few COVID cases since the large spring wave because there is a great deal of immunity built up. However, Uttar Pradesh, despite its population of 240 million people, has been averaging fewer than 20 cases over the past few months for its seven-day rolling average.

This is India at large:

Now compare to Uttar Pradesh, which has a flat line rather than just a low churn.

Now let’s compare this to the state of Kerala, which has removed ivermectin and other proven therapeutics from its treatment protocol and has gone all in on the ineffective remdesivir.

Old Soldier Mark Milley Should ‘Fade Away’, by Ray McGovern

Don’t think retirement will be any big punishment, not when Milley will undoubtedly have positions in defense and intelligence contractors, high-powered lobbying firms, and think tanks awaiting him. From Ray McGovern at antiwar.com:

A week after President Harry Truman fired WWII war hero Gen. Douglas MacArthur in April 1951, MacArthur addressed a joint session of Congress with some self-pity about being overruled and under-appreciated by that civilian Truman: “Old soldiers never die – they just fade away.”

MacArthur had publicly criticized Truman for denying him permission to nuke “Red China” after it sent troops into Korea to fight U.S. troops there. That was in April 1951, 70 years ago. Truman explained: “I fired him because he wouldn’t respect the authority of the President…I didn’t fire him because he was a dumb son of a bitch, although he was.”

Given, comparisons can be invidious, but the most charitable explanation for the behavior of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs 4-star Gen. Gen. Mark Milley – and the explanation most often adduced by those who know him – is that he merits the sobriquet Truman gave to 5-star MacArthur. I tend to be less charitable, seeing Milley as insubordinate and duplicitous, and – most important – trying to illegally insert himself into the sensitive chain of command to authorize the use of nuclear weapons.

Real “Peril”

Milley has not denied the stunning revelations in the book “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Aside from the almost incredible (but widely welcomed) report that Milley saw fit to warn his Chinese counterpart that he would give him a heads-up if an armed attack on China was coming, there is the equally astonishing revelation that Milley instructed senior Pentagon officials that he had to be involved in any discussions about launching nuclear weapons.

DeSantis Office: Over Half Of Those Seeking Lifesaving COVID-19 Treatment In South Florida Full Vaccinated, by Jack Phillips

The above headline may cast perhaps a bit of doubt that the vaccines actually work, at least “work” as most people know the term. From Jack Phillips at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:

A spokesperson for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s office said that more than half of those who are seeking monoclonal antibody treatment in the south of Florida are “fully vaccinated” individuals amid supply issues.

“More than half the patients getting the monoclonal antibody treatment in south Florida are fully vaccinated,” DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw wrote in response to a comment on Twitter that suggested that only unvaccinated people are the reason why there is a significant demand for monoclonal antibodies.

Florida, she wrote hours earlier, “is above average in vaccination rate” and that “more than half of the patients in south Florida getting monoclonal antibody treatment are vaccinated and have breakthrough infections. Vaccinated or unvaccinated – Denying treatment to Covid patients is wrong.

Monoclonal antibodies are engineered immune system proteins that boost an immune response against an infection.

Earlier this week, the White House and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced plans to control the U.S. monoclonal antibody supply due to distribution issues. According to HHS’s website in a Sept. 13 update, the agency “will determine the weekly amount of mAb products each state and territory receives based on COVID-19 case burden and [monoclonal antibody treatment] utilization.”

Antibody Treatements For COVID Work, Why Aren’t The Being Promoted? by Mark Glennon

Perhaps the quickest way to confine a Covid treatment to obscurity is for it to work. From Mark Glennon at wirepoints.org:

It’s perhaps the most effective way to save your life if you are infected with COVID-19, but probably the least known. It reduces the risk of even being hospitalized by 70% to 85%, though it must be administered early to be effective – within four days of infection. Lives probably are being lost unnecessarily because people don’t know about it.

It’s monoclonal antibody treatment, abbreviated as mAb. To the extent the public has any familiarity with it, they may know it as Regeneron, though that’s actually the name of the company that makes the leading treatment, REGEN-COV2, and there are several other mAbs from other makers.

Health authorities for months back should have been issuing this message constantly: “Immediately after being exposed or you have COVID symptoms, get tested and ask if an antibody treatment is right for you.”

But they didn’t. They still aren’t. At least not in Illinois and most of the nation.

Why not?

No reasonable explanation is evident and a significant number of lives may have been lost because of the failure to inform the public properly. And now, with antibody treatments getting more attention, the treatments must be rationed, adding to the tragedy. At least in part, the explanation is a sad one – politics, and politicized media.

The effectiveness of REGEN and other antibody treatments has been known since at least November when the Food and Drug Administration granted emergency authorization for REGEN and another mAb. Earlier tests had found REGEN to be over 70% effective in heading off serious illness and multiple subsequent tests have confirmed it. “Many of us were talking about this as early as March [2020] wrote Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner. “Regeneron did extraordinary work to secure their own manufacturing, but we needed a concerted industrial effort to get the supply we needed.”

Debunking Biden’s Claim We Must “Protect The Vaccinated From The Unvaccinated,” by Ryan McMaken

It’s not hard to debunk what Biden says, most of it, like the quote in the title, is absurd on its face. From Ryan McMaken at mises.org:

The official line on vaccines is that they are extremely effective at protecting against serious illness. And yet these same people are also claiming that the unvaccinated are a major threat to the vaccinated.

More specifically, President Biden claimed on September 10 that vaccine mandates were to “protect the vaccinated workers from unvaccinated workers.”

In other words, it is claimed that vaccines are remarkably effective, and that the vaccinated must also be protected from the unvaccinated. How can both claims be true at the same time? They can’t. The idea that vaccinated people are being frequently harmed by the unvaccinated is a complete fabrication, based on the promandate crowd’s own mainstream data.

As Robert Fellner points out, according to the official data,

The odds of a vaccinated person dying from COVID are 1 in 137,000.

The fatality rate for seasonal flu, meanwhile, is at least 100 times greater than that. The chance of dying in an automobile accident is over 1,000 times greater. Dog attacks, bee stings, sunstroke, cataclysmic storms, and a variety of other background risks we accept as a normal part of life are all more deadly than the risk COVID poses to the vaccinated.

Moreover, the risk of death to vaccinated people is similar to the risk of having an adverse side effect to the vaccine. And as the spokesmen for Big Pharma and the regime never tire of telling us, you shouldn’t care about having an adverse reaction, because it is so very rare and inconsequential.

So by that reasoning, vaccinated people shouldn’t worry about getting very ill from covid. Those cases are just as rare as the so, so rare cases of adverse reaction.

Biden’s Border Blunder: 15,000 Migrants Under Texas Bridge Forces Gov. Abbot To Send In Troopers, by Tyler Durden

Larger-than-life guy that he is, when Biden blunders he blunders in a big way. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Update (1120ET): Fox News’ Bill Melugin tweets a new aerial visual of the 15,000 migrants under Anzalduas Bridge in Mission, Texas.

Update (0958ET): The utter failure of the Biden administration to take control of the border crisis unfolding under the Anzalduas Bridge in Mission, Texas, resulted in Governor Greg Abbott sending State Troopers and National Guard members to secure the area.

New figures from Fox News’ Bill Melugin estimate nearly 15,000 migrants are currently under the Anzalduas Bridge as they wait to be processed by Border Patrol agents. Melugin has flown his drone over the area to show an aerial view of the increasing migrants, mostly Haitians, crossing the Mexico–US border and gathering under the bridge.
