The Double Helix of Entwined Pandemic and Economic Strategy, by Alastair Crooke

When your economy runs on credit, you need a never ending stream of crises to justify never ending government and central bank injections of fiat debt. The Covid outbreak is the latest excuse for fiat debt creation. From Alastair Crooke at strategic-culture.org:

The corollary to the collapse of the technocratic initiative to liquify the over-leveraged economy might well be recession, Alastair Crooke writes.

Three years ago, I said to an American Professor from the US Army War College in Washington, in respect to the campaign to return American lost Blue Collar jobs to Asia, that these jobs would never return.  They were gone for good.

He retorted that that was precisely so, but I was missing the point, he said. America did not expect, or want, the majority of those humdrum manufacturing jobs back. They should stay in Asia. The Élites, he said, wanted only the commanding heights of Tech. They wanted the intellectual property, the protocols, the metrics, the regulatory framework that would allow America to define and expand across the next two decades of global technological evolution.

The real dilemma however, he said was, “What is to be done with the 20% of the American workforce that would be no longer needed: that was no longer necessary to the functioning of a tech-led US economy?”

In fact, what the Professor said was but one facet of a fundamental economic dilemma. From the seventies and eighties onwards, US corporations were busy offshoring their labour costs to Asia. Partly, this was to cut costs and increase profitability (which it did) — but it also represented something deeper. 

From the outset, the US has been an expansionary empire ever digesting new lands, new peoples, and their human and material resources. Forward motion, the continuous military, commercial, and cultural expansion became the lifeblood of Wall Street and of its foreign polity. For, absent this relentless expansion, the civic bonds of American unity fall into question.  An America not in motion is not America.  This forms the very essence of US leitkultur.

Uncovering the Corona Narrative: Was Everything Carefully Planned? Analysis by Ernst Wolff

A comprehensive and trenchant analysis of the Covid reponse and narrative, from Ernst Wolff at globalresearch.ca:

Why were worldwide measures taken which have caused one disaster after another and pushed humanity deeper towards the abyss instead of lifting them out of their misery.

⁣⁣Superb explanation of one big reason the world went corona psychotic. Lecture by Ernst Wolff, renowned German economist and journalist. His focus is the on the global financial and monetary system, especially the role of the IMF, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve, the Bretton Woods system and the worldwide fiat money.
 .
This speech is probably one of the best and most concise exposés of the whole Corona narrative and ends on a hopeful message of what we can do to prevent the dystopian vision of Klaus Schwab and his supporters becoming ‘the new normal’.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said  Nothing happens accidentally in politics. And when something happens, you can bet on it that it was exactly planned that way.” 

When one looks at what has happened in the last year and a half, these words are especially alarming. 

After studying this topic in detail for 18 months, I must say that there is an impressive number of signs and indications, pointing in exactly in that direction. It’s this, and the consequences thereof that I want to talk about today.

The current situation we find ourselves in is unique in the history of mankind. Never before has the whole world been thrown under the rule of this type of coercive regime as we are experiencing now. And never have so many measures been taken which at first glance appears so unintelligible, partly so nonsensical, and in many cases, so contradictory.

This is about the most serious health crisis in living memory, but the measures being used against this have not improved the situation, but continuously made things worse. Every doctor today can confirm the health condition of people, the majority of people, is worse than before the crisis.

What if the largest experiment on human beings in history is a failure? By Dr. Robert W. Malone

The largest experiment on human beings in history should never have been conducted. From Dr. Robert W. Malone at rwmalonemd.substack.com:

A report from an Indiana life insurance company raises serious concerns.

A seasoned stock analyst colleague texted me a link today, and when I clicked it open, I could hardly believe what I was reading.  What a headline.  “Indiana life insurance CEO says deaths are up 40% among people ages 18-64”.  This headline is a nuclear truth bomb masquerading as an insurance agent’s dry manila envelope full of actuarial tables.

People frequently write to Jill and myself. People we have never met.  They call, they arrive at the farm by appointment or unannounced, they fill our email in boxes with their inquiries. They all want something; time, attention, an interview.  Many want to tell us about their fear, illness, nightmares, or (what often seems like) outright paranoid conspiracies.  And then, over time, these fears and “conspiracies” keep getting confirmed.  As Jan Jekielek (a senior editor with The Epoch Times) recently said to me, it is getting harder and harder to tell which ones are mere conspiracy theories and which are true reality.

One farm visitor told me of his foreshadowing massive numbers of deaths within three years consequent to the genetic vaccines, and that this was all about the “Great Reset” and the depopulation agenda of the World Economic Forum (WEF).  I tried to reassure him that, in my opinion, this was highly unlikely- while privately thinking about how easily people fall into this type of conspiracy ideation, and how I need to be careful to avoid going there when confronting so many public health decisions that appear either incompetent or nefarious.  At the time, I only knew of the WEF as the host of a big annual party in Davos Switzerland where the uber rich and the hoi oligoi of the Western nations went to watch Ted talks, drink the best wine, see and be seen.  Silly me.  What a long, strange trip this has been.  I doubt that even Hunter S. Thompson could have imagined it in his most drug and booze addled state.  Suffice to say, I nominate Ralph Steadman as official illustrator of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.  Or a resurrected Hieronymus Bosch.

A Colossal Theft in Pain Sight, by Lawrence McDonald

Where did all that stimulus and Covid relief money go? From Larry McDonald at thebeartrapsreport.com:

What have we done with the $11 Trillion?

We have clients in 23 different countries, but most reside within the continental United States – in recent weeks, we keep hearing countless stories of self-proclaimed 24-hour turnaround testing centers to do a PCR test, then taking more than 80 hours to get the results back. Friends in New Jersey tell us not one pharmacy or walk-in clinic in a 100-mile radius has appointments available in the next week. Home testing has improved but for those traveling overseas – it is a PCR test that is needed.

The question that haunts us now is that, almost two years into this crisis and an $11 Trillion U.S. Fiscal and Monetary spending deluge, we still don’t have an adequate testing infrastructure? It blows us away –  we are still dealing with endless waiting lines, no availability of testing appointments, shortages of at-home tests and overwhelmed testing labs scrambling to process vials.  Where did all that money go?

State and Federal Debts Add Up

In the US, the corona crisis started on January 29, 2020, when the White House initiated its coronavirus task force. Since then, the US has gone from crisis to crisis and the media and our politicians have been obsessed with this epidemic and its consequences ever since. Amidst all the turmoil, the US government has left no stone unturned to throw money at this disaster. The Fed kicked off in early March by lowering interest rates to zero and shortly after began rolled out an alphabet soup of emergency programs. From buying high yield debt to bankrolling bailout checks (PPP loans), nothing was left on the table for our adroit stewards at the Fed. The byzantine maze of fiscal stimuli has left everyone confused. Nevertheless, the total amount of support the Fed has pumped into the economy is best measured by the expansion of its balance sheet. When the Fed finishes its asset tapering program in March of 2022, its balance sheet will have expanded by $5 Trillion. In less than two years the Fed deployed more money than during, and in the 10 years after, the great financial crisis ($3.5TR). This monetary support alone is also more than that of the entire GDP of Japan, the third-largest economy in the world.

The Medical Profession Implodes, by Steve Karp, M.D.

With noteworthy exceptions, the medical profession has not covered itself in glory duringthe Covid-19 outbreak. From Steve Karp, M.D. at americanthinker.com:

In “normal” times, the practice of medicine has many challenges, some from within and some from outside the profession.  If you let it, much of your daily practice follows specialty guidelines, insurance company criteria, hospital formularies, and other annoyances.  None of those entities have any liability when it comes to our patients.  For the most part, liability lies with the treating physician.

Each specialty plays a particular role in a patient’s care and specialists often view issues from different angles while wearing their tunnel-vision glasses.  For instance, some physicians view elevated cholesterol as an indicator to assess other potential underlying medical issues, while a cardiologist will just write a prescription for a statin drug, just as a cat reflexively chases a mouse.

What changed overnight and across the board, was an anti-science attitude across all specialties to everything related to COVID.  A viral infection is not something requiring government management, rather, its encounter is part of a physician’s daily medical practice.  The government has seemingly accomplished what medical insurers, medical boards, and hospitals tried, but had not yet succeeded at: complete mind control of physicians.  And with that, the last vestige of respect I had for my profession died.

I’m often in attendance at medical meetings where the fine points of immunotherapy and monoclonal antibodies are discussed as part of the treatment for cancer patients.  For physicians, it is their version of science in regard to a drug’s indications, mechanisms of action, dosing, management of side effects, and the studies justifying one drug or combination over another, the latter often supported by questionable statistical analysis.

The Covid Scare and The Bonus Army 2.0, by William Bernard Butler

Covid-19 and the January 6 protests have been exercises in propaganda. From William Bernard Butler at williambernardbutler.com:

If the world is at war and the most prized territory is the mind of humanity, then there are at least two reality-bending fronts and questions in this war:  (1) has the world experienced an extraordinarily dangerous and deadly “pandemic” from January 2020 to the present?; and (2) on January 6, 2021, did a rogue band of domestic terrorists and insurrectionists violently attempt to overthrow the United States government?

The reality-based community is waking up to the fact that the answer to both of these questions is, emphatically:  No.

The keyhole-vision pictures inserted into our collective brain by these false narratives looked so real while we were caught in the middle of them, especially when the scary charts and photos were accompanied by equally scary and incendiary words.  The sane and sober facts now provide a much more realistic, and much broader, picture and perspective.   With time and space, we can now discern reality from narrative, fact from fiction.

Because language is so important and so misused and abused by the authors of these false narratives, let’s please stop using the words “pandemic” and “insurrection” unless they are followed by the term “narrative,” as in “fictional story.”  We can also stop using the word “vaccination.”  When we use the identifying labels that the false narrative authors carefully choose and apply in order to get us to admit to a fiction by merely repeating a false and misleading label, then it becomes much harder for us to later draw the hard line between stories that exist only in our heads versus stories that exist in objective reality.

The pandemic narrative, The Covid Scare, is a fiction.  The 2020 Seasonal Flu is  reality.  The January 6 “insurrection” is a fiction.  The sad fate of the abused and misguided Bonus Army 2.0 is reality.

The Orange Hobson’s Choice, by Eric Peters

By essentially turning over management of the government’s response to Covid to Anthony Fauci, Donald Trump horribly botched that response. The question is whether he’d do any better given a second chance in 2024. From Eric Peters at ericpeters.com:

It’s now less than three years until the next presidential (s)election. Will the president who wasn’t (s)elected last time run, again?

It appears that he will.

If he does, it will present us – those of us who do not want four more years of this year – with a Hobson’s Choice. The term refers to accepting what’s available – or nothing at all.

Possibly, something worse.

It is difficult for many of us who’ve endured the consequences of the Orange Man’s failure to stand athwart the metastatic weaponization of hypochondria – of his standing aside for the last year of his presidency, in favor of President-not-selected Fauci – to contemplate voting for the same man, again.

How can we trust him, again?

But then, what will our choice be, if that is the only man – besides the other man? Assuming the latter can be kept alive for three more years. Worse, perhaps, is the woman who will likely succeed the doddering old man, if the Adrenochrome drip fails to keep him John Gill’ing around that fake Oval Office set they sometimes transmit his mumblings from.

What then?

How about – what now?

Why have we doctors been silent? By Lucie Wilk

The doctors who have accepted government writ and propaganda about Covid-19 and its treatments have cost thousands of people’s lives. From Lucie Wilk at conservativewoman.co.uk:

AS an NHS hospital doctor, I have had a front-row seat as the drama of the coronavirus pandemic has unfolded. It has been a year and a half of confusion, frustration and anger for me as I’ve watched our profession drawn into complicity with what I anticipate will be regarded as one of the most egregious public health disasters in history.

I have watched as ‘the science’ has been presented on the national stage flanked by Union Jack flags as an unassailable truth. For something so apparently inviolable, it seems to shift and change disconcertingly from week to week, and for those of us looking beneath the pomp to the plain data, we see the rather unexciting (and unchanging) truth: the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, as it turns out, has a much lower infection fatality rate than early predictions. It is less deadly than the seasonal flu in children. The Office for National Statistics has reported the mean age of a Covid-attributed death in the UK to be 80.3 years, slightly older than deaths from other causes (78.2 years over the comparable time period).

What has been most upsetting for me has been the unquestioning compliance from the medical community as increasingly draconian, non-evidence-based and destructive virus control measures have been implemented. Some of the overt corruption, financial conflict of interests and politicisation has been laid bare in editorials in prominent medical journals such as the BMJ. But the vast majority of doctors have had no interest in asking questions or looking further.

My concern over our professional passivity turned to alarm as our compliance required us to support the roll-out of an experimental vaccine to a trusting population.

‘I’m a doctor and I fear we will never regain the public’s trust after Covid’, by R.M. Huffman

The medical establishment has been one Covid lie after another, and how many doctors can say that the patients who’ve received the vaccines they’ve administered were exercising informed consent. From R.M. Huffman at rt.com:

‘I’m a doctor and I fear we will never regain the public’s trust after Covid’
One undeniable outcome of the pandemic is that the public’s faith in scientific and medical authorities is perhaps at its lowest point in living memory – and no objective observer can truly be surprised.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the US President’s Chief Medical Adviser Dr Anthony Fauci and US Surgeon General Dr Jerome Adams told us not to wear masks, until they instructed us to wear one everywhere we went.

The Covid vaccines were declared to be effective at preventing the spread of disease, until breakthrough cases around the globe proved that wasn’t so, and that effectiveness was downgraded to “against hospitalization and death.”

Both The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine, two of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, have issued embarrassing retractions to widely publicized papers eventually found to have too little validity to be published.

Anyone who suggested that the pandemic originated in a Wuhan laboratory and not a Chinese wet market was labeled a conspiracy theorist by official sources who later had to admit they were possibly correct. The same proved true for everyone who accused Fauci and the National Institutes of Health of funding gain-of-function research at the lab: they were crazy, until they were right.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists urged all pregnant women to be vaccinated, asserting that the new injections were completely safe. Now, a new review of that same data suggests that one in eight women spontaneously aborted her pregnancy after getting the jab.

Even medical terms – such as ‘herd immunity’, and the word ‘vaccine’ itself – have literally been redefined over the past few months.

COVID Vaccine Mandates Are Killing Aviation, Healthcare, Other Critical Services. Is It Intentional? By the Children’s Health Defense

Are they actually trying to destroy the economy? From the Children’s Health Defense Team at childrenshealthdefense.com:

Is the sabotage of air travel, high-quality healthcare, first-responder capability and other core services, by vaccine mandates, an intentional step designed to further weaken Americans’ resilience and expand authoritarian controls?

The widespread hemorrhaging of experienced public- and private-sector employees — a “man-made disaster of historic proportions,” according to former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul — is hollowing out some of the most important public-facing professions in the country.

Although many factors are at play, COVID vaccine mandates are a significant contributor, with employers refusing to honor the option to refuse Emergency Use Authorization COVID vaccines that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supposedly guaranteed.

The result has been the threatened or actual mass firing and resignation of thousands of unvaccinated workers in critical sectors like healthcare, policing, firefighting, education and aviation, with skilled and experienced workers prepared to “leave if that’s what it comes to” rather than take the risky shots.

Even though these departures are “drastically overwhelming employers’ ability to replace them,” many of the politicians and corporate executives pushing the mandates seem weirdly at ease with their policy.

This complacency begs the question: Is the sabotage of air travel, high-quality healthcare, first-responder capability and other core services an intentional step designed to further weaken Americans’ resilience and expand authoritarian controls?
