A Genius, Alright, by Eric Peters

Elon Musk is a genius at figuring out how to get the government and his competitors to underwrite his business. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Elon Musk is said – by some – to be a “genius.” Arguably, a more accurate honorific would be king, used in the Elvisian sense.

Elvis, of course, was the King – of rock n’ roll. There was no else like him, insofar as his persona especially. His jump-suited image has become an icon of Americana. Even people who don’t know his music know him – and that is what makes him the King.

Musk is like that in his own way. He has become synomous with the electric cars that bear another man’s name and riff off the legacy of the man who created what was arguably the very first volkswagen (lower case) or people’s car.

That car being, of course, the Model T. Which nomenclature Musk uses to create a false assocation with his Model 3 (and other Models). False – because nothing could imagined that is more contra t everything the Model T was than what the Model 3 (and other Tesla models) are. The T was an everyman’s car. The 3 is a rich man’s car. The T got less expensive to buy with each successive model year; the Model 3 just got more expensive – again. The T was designed to give ordinary people the freedom to go anywhere they wanted, anytime they liked. The 3 is designed to force most people back onto the bus – and tether the few to a cord.

But Musk is a genius – lower case – in a way.

No one heretofore has been as colossaly successful at becoming a billionare (several times over) by using the government to – on the one hand – force his rivals to finance his operations and thereby, their competition and – on the other – to use the government to create a “market” for his products, which would otherwise have a very small market (being very expensive and very impractical).

The Golden Road To Samarkand, by Amir Taheri

There are many unanswered questions about the Eurasian multipolarity that Russia and China are trying to create. From Amir Taheri at gatestoneinstitute.org:

  • The Russian media, echoing President Vladimir Putin’s speech at the summit, say the SCO is designed to end “the unipolar world “by creating a “multipolar system”.

  • The Chinese media offer a different version. The SCO is meant to offer a new political system for the whole world as an alternative to the Western democratic model.

  • To the Islamic media in Tehran, celebrating the Islamic Republic’s admission to the club after 11 years of supplication, the SCO is an extension of the “Resistance Front” created to contain and defeat the American “Great Satan.”

  • The SCO’s identity as a club of queer fellows has been further emphasized by the admission of a host of new members all of whom have territorial disputes with each other.

  • Some Western commentators have dubbed the SCO “a new power bloc”. That may be jumping the gun a bit. SCO members are more dependent on trade with the European Union, the US, Canada, Japan, South Korea and Australia than with each other.

  • The Samarkand club represents some 40 percent of the world’s population and over 20 percent of the global GDP, not to mention four of the 9 nations with nuclear arsenals. Yet, it seems unlikely to become an anchor of stability in Eurasia; its members are more interested in petty schemes than grand ideas of peace and cooperation.

Mockingbird media dishes up a load of (half) truth, 50 years too late, by Leo Hohmann

The infiltration of Los Alamos National Lab by the Chinese is part of a comprehensive espionage effort. Only now does the mainstream media take notice. From Leo Hohmann at leohohmann.com:

The story I’m about to share is not terribly shocking, at least not to those of us who are awake, but I find the timing, along with the source, a bit ominous.

It comes from a mainstream corporate media outlet, NBC News, and it tells us that the modern military machine owned by the Chinese Communist Party is basically a creation of the United States.

Now why is the source and the timing of this story important?

Along with Facebook, Twitter, CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times, NBC is at the epicenter of the CIA-led mockingbird media, totally under the thumb of the globalist deep state, shilling for the technocratic beast system that’s being erected before our very eyes.

If you aren’t familiar with the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, look it up and study it.

Well-paid, professional propagandists, posing as journalists, are working hand-in-glove with the government, education system and large corporations to destroy the U.S. as we know it and merge what’s left into a technocratic one-world authoritarian system. The model system for the Communist States of America is China, where everyone is surveilled, tracked, monitored, assessed and socially scored 24/7 in real time. These ministers of propaganda use every manner of false reasoning and errors of omission to nudge you into their false narrative. Whether it’s climate change, vaccines, gun control, abortion, transgenderism, the pandemic of the month or the next big war, it’s all professionally served up in holy, self-righteous style. Eat this, don’t eat that, drive this, don’t drive that, inject this, live here, don’t live there, cover your face, stand on the X, sign up for your digital ID, etc. Obey and get promoted. Disobey and get demoted, canceled, disbarred, reviewed, revoked.

Synthetic Salvation – On Genomics, Mind Uploads, & The Quest For Immortality, by Joe Allen

Nothing is quite as goofy about the New World Order crowd as its billionaires’ weird obsession with immortality. From Joe Allen at joebot.substack.com:

Our elites want to live forever. The rest of us will make for rich compost

kentoh © 123rf.com

Fear of death is intrinsic to human life. As our years accumulate, we watch friends and family drop off, one by one, disappearing from our presence and lingering only in memories.

Barring some miracle, divine or otherwise, we’re all soon to follow, down to the sweetest baby ever born.

Unfazed by this horror, the faithful are emboldened by belief in resurrection or reincarnation—a direct participation in the eternal. For religious people, the body is just a vehicle for a transcendent soul. The mystery of death is a rite of passage.

For the materialist, there is only this world, beyond which the dying meet total annihilation. The brain dissolves into black nothingness. Consciousness stops with the Big Zero at the end of our lives. And for all sentient beings, and all memory of our existence, there awaits the Big Zero at the end of the universe.

The cosmos is nothing but atoms and the void. To make matters worse, the atoms are slowly freezing to death.

Wallowing in this trance of sorrow, our elites, and most anybody else, would pay anything to live forever—or just a little longer. Held in thrall by old age, disease, and death, they put faith in biomedical protection racketeers who swear they can keep the Reaper at bay.

Today, it’s the vaxx-addicts and maskholes.

Bill Gates’ ‘Magic Seeds’ Won’t Solve World Hunger But Will ‘Create Ecological Disaster’, by Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D.

Bill Gates is an expert on everything and now he’s peddling “magic seeds” as yet another salvation. Resist on principle, but as this article argues, resist on the science, too. From Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D., at childrenshealthdefense.org:

Bill Gates is rebranding genetically engineered seeds as “magic seeds” and says they’re the answer to world hunger, but according to Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., a “failed, clumsy crude manipulation of living systems does not create ‘magical seeds.’ It creates an ecological disaster.”

Bill Gates said he believes the global community must invest in engineered crops using what he calls his “magic seeds” to solve world hunger.

Food aid alone cannot address the problem, Gates said in an essay accompanying the  Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s (BMGF) Goalkeepers 2022 Report, released earlier this month.

What is needed, he said, are “magic” seeds that have been genetically engineered to be resistant to hot and dry climates or to grow three weeks faster than natural seeds.

“Temperature keeps going up,” Gates said. “There is no way, without innovation, to come even close to feeding Africa. I mean, it just doesn’t work.”

However, André Leu, organic farming expert, former president of IFOAM Organics International and author of “Growing Life: Regenerating Farming and Ranching,” criticized Gates for calling his genetically modified seeds “magical.”

“This is patently false and an example of spin doctoring by public relations companies to rebrand products that are widely regarded as Frankenfoods,” Leu told The Defender.

Henry Ford vs. Elon Musk, by Eric Peters

One’s a producer, the other’s a conman. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Henry Ford was the antithesis of Elon Musk. The latter uses government to force people into cars that are more expensive and less practical, thereby diminishing personal mobility. The former designed and built a car that cost less (each successive model year) and was far more versatile and practical than a horse and buggy, that freed people from being largely stuck where they were.

Ford did not use the power of the government to compel his rivals to subsidize his operations, as Musk has done (via the selling of what are styled “carbon credits” to other car companies, who are under regulatory duress to either build a certain number of EeeeeeeeeVeeeeees or buy “credit” – from Elon – for having built them).

The Model T was the antithesis of Tesla’s cars. The latter are designed to be very high-performance and for that reason very consumptive, of both power and raw materials. They are not designed for longevity or owner-serviceability. They are operationally fragile in that extreme conditions – as of high heat and extreme cold – greatly diminish their functionality.

The Model T was specifically designed to be as simple and practical as possible. It had no fuel or water pump. It did not even need a small starter battery in order to run as the engine was designed to be turned over by hand and – once running – magnetos kept it running.

WEF Uses CODED LANGUAGE to Communicate Unthinkable Plans, by Igor Chudov

What’s behind that bland nanny-state speak that we recognize as soon as we hear and with which we’re constantly bombarded? It’s actually terrifying. From Igor Chudov at igorchudov.substack.com:

WEF’s Language is Used to Avoid Unwanted Attention

What if I told you that the World Economic Forum’s climate agenda is to stop economic growth, and shut down many industries, which would be accomplished by having a WEF-designed artificial intelligence system decide which industries are to be liquidated? And that the WEF expects working people to be paying money to the masses of economically displaced people, to induce them not to work?

You would probably laugh at me, call me a crazy person, and refuse to even consider that seriously. That story could not possibly be true! An important global organization cannot propose such an absurdity! What a stupid conspiracy theory, probably invented by some weirdo who is living under a rock!

If that is your reaction, you are a perfectly normal person, as no well-adjusted individual would ever come up with such nonsensical proposals. Even I, if I heard something like that from a random individual I just met, would probably just dismiss such things as crazy talk.

All good, but this very proposal is the central part of the WEF’s agenda, proudly featured on its homepage. I did not come up with anything it did not actually say!

Latest COVID Shots Sold as Genetic Software Update, by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Software—it’s to be expected with Bill Gates pulling the strings. From Dr. Joseph Mercola at theburningplatform.com:

COVID booster antibody update

Story at-a-glance

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now advertising the new COVID booster as an “antibody update” to “recharge your immunity” — as if your immune system were a battery that needs recharging, or your immunity a software system that requires gene therapy “updates.” This is transhumanist lingo that has no bearing on real-world biology or physiology, and proves the FDA is onboard with the transhumanist ideas of technocracy pushed by the globalist cabal
  • According to a risk-benefit analysis looking at the impact of booster mandates for university students, between 22,000 and 30,000 previously uninfected adults (aged 18 to 29) must be boosted with an mRNA vaccine to prevent one COVID-19 hospitalization
  • For each hospitalization prevented, the jab will cause 18 to 98 serious adverse events, including 1.7 to three booster-associated myocarditis cases in males
  • A small observational study led by neurology researchers at the National Institutes of Health found “a variety of neuropathic symptoms” occurring within three to four weeks of COVID injection
  • Naturopath Henry Ealy and two Oregon state senators, Kim Thatcher and Dennis Linthicum, are trying to compel the state court in Oregon to order the impaneling of a special grand jury to investigate criminal data fraud by the CDC

How to use technology, and not be used by it, by Simon Black

A lot of solid suggestions about how to preserve your privacy and still be a part of the computer and Internet age, from Simon Black at sovereignman.com:

Amazon’s Ring video doorbells likely form the largest private surveillance network the world has ever known.

Millions of Americans allow Ring surveillance cameras to record and store video and audio of all activity at their front door.

Ring maintains access to users’ unencrypted videos, and has admitted in the past that at least four employees improperly accessed doorbell camera recordings.

Then there is Amazon’s Alexa, which is a voluntary wiretap people bug their homes with for the convenience of asking, “Hey wiretap, can dogs eat pancakes?”

Amazon employees can also access certain Alexa recordings.

Google also has a whole line of “smart home” products like cameras, doorbells, and voice assistants called Nest that feed video and audio back to the mothership.

Of course, if you’re a Gmail user, Google also keeps a history of everything that you buy. Every online purchase, travel itinerary, etc. is automatically parsed and logged. Google knows what work you do on Docs. They know your search history, what you like to watch on YouTube, and what you’ve downloaded on your Android device.

These tech companies have such detailed personal information on their users that J. Edgar Hoover would blush.

And they don’t even bother hiding what they do with such enormous troves of our personal data.

Killer Teslas, by Eric Peters

The amazing thing is how Tesla manages to skirt liability. From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

Why is it that “speed” (and “guns”) “kill” but Teslas don’t?

Even though Teslas actually do.

No gun ever killed anyone. It took a person to do that. Speed never did, either. Rather, it was the impact with the deceased that did, caused by the loss-of-control of the vehicle – which can and does happen at any speed.

But Teslas actually do kill people. Two of them, just recently. In just one month. The first on July 7. The second a couple of weeks later, on the 24th. Both were motorcyclists. Each was struck from behind by a marauding Tesla driven by itself. Its driver asleep at the wheel – because that’s what Tesla’s “self-driving” technology encourages them to do. If you can’t fall asleep at the wheel in a “self-driving” car, why bother with a “self-driving car”? That would be like buying a boat that’s not safe to float.

Well, the two bikers are now asleep, too. Permanently.

If Teslas were guns, there would be calls to ban them. And these calls would be justified, since – unlike guns – Teslas not only have killed but will kill, again. How many is the only debatable point.

It is an inevitability of the technology – and the psychology.
