CCDH – The Centre For Cancel Culture And Digital Hypocrisy – Part 2

Iain Davis

IMRAN AHMED, CCHD CEO

In Part 1 we looked at the Center For Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) who, in accordance with the Commission on Countering Extremism definition, can be described as hateful extremists. In particular, we looked at their recent attack upon people who express some doubts about vaccines. It appears the CCDH are working with others to establish the censorship grid at the heart of an emerging Technofascist State.

The CCDH are a small organisation, employing no more than two people, who have been given disproportionate power and influence. They appear to comprise of one CEO, one b-list celebrity (as patron) and six board members. They state on their website that their small budget is funded by unnamed philanthropic trusts and members of the public.

The CCDH links to the parliamentary Labour Party are considerable. They appear to benefit from a revolving door between them and the UK parliament. Recently, former CCDH board member and founder Morgan McSweeney left to become Labour Leader Keir Starmer’s Chief of Staff.

Keir Starmer is the only parliamentarian who is also a serving member of the Trilateral Commission. Founded in 1973 by oil and banking tycoon David Rockefeller and political king maker Zbigniew Brzezinski, who devised Operation Cyclone to financially support, arm and equip Islamist extremists, it brings together world political leaders with global investors and bankers, academics and policy advisers. The Trilateral commission is a powerful and influential globalist policy think tank whose stated aim is to build:

[An] international system to navigate successfully the major challenges of the coming years.”

The CCDH’s association with people like London Mayor Sadique Khan, McSweeney and Starmer, afford representatives like Ahmed the kind of political clout he needs to meet with Twitter bosses and have people banned from their platform. While failing to convince Twitter to censor the views of George Galloway (give them time) they did rid the Twittersphere of right wing mouthpiece Katey Hopkins.

Personally, I have little time for Hopkins. However, if we continue to allow the censorship of people, simply because they express views we don’t agree with, the freedom of speech we are supposed to value is finished. The CCDH are a direct threat to plurality of opinion in an open and free democratic society.

CCDH Disinformation

Incorporated as Brixton Endeavours Ltd in 2018, the CCDH re-registered their name in August 2019. As a so called Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), despite an extensive web of connections to government and policy makers, under section 477 of the 2006 Companies Act, the CCDH are exempt from audit and can thus keep their finances largely secret. Financial transparency is not a requirement for UK registered NGO’s.

The CCDH’s Stop Funding Fake News campaign, encourages advertisers to avoid placing ads on websites the CCDH don’t like. Their successful campaign apparently influenced Twitter to ban the website Zero Hedge. At least the CCDH are happy to give that impression.

Among their other campaigns, Stop Hate for Profit specifically targets Facebook advertisers. Again the objective is to silence any and all who the CCDH don’t agree with.

The CCDH say Zero Hedge is a “fake news” site that spreads coronavirus misinformation. Zero Hedge republish work from other sites and, it is fair to say, the quality can vary. However Zero Hedge also produce their own content which is well researched, cites all the evidence it uses. It is very far from the genuine fake news we commonly see from the mainstream media (MSM).

The CCDH report that Twitter banned Zero Hedge for the doxxing (revealing personal contact details) of a Chinese research scientist. The offending article does report Dr. Zhou’s office contact email and work phone number, which were publicly available on the Wuhan Institute of Virology website at the time. Zero Hedge didn’t reveal anything at all, they simply reported information already in the public domain.

While failing to correct this erroneous charge of doxxing, the CCDH were spinning fake news of their own. They wrote:

…They [Zero Hedge] claimed [Dr. Zhou] was behind the global Coronavirus pandemic.”

Zero Hedge made no such claim in the article. They cited a lot of evidence which made it a perfectly legitimate question to ask. All they did was report the evidence and ask the obvious question the evidence raised.

According to the CCDH this is coronavirus disinformation. Yet it is their misreporting of the facts that is disinformation and their claims that are fake news. Which doesn’t lend much credibility to further allegations they have made against the other websites and small businesses they have decided to attack.

The CCDH numerous partners in their “Stop Funding Fake News” drive include the global NGO the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The WWF is a project of the British Crown and has gathered support from many of the worlds biggest, so called, NGO’s, global financial institutions and governments alike.

Formed in 1961 by the eugenicists Julian Huxley and Max Nicholson (among others), it has relentlessly pursued its goal of depopulation and undemocratic global governance. All done using the ruse of environmental concern as a ploy to cover its appalling objectives.

Among it’s other founding members were Prince Bernard of the Netherlands, who established the Bilderberg Group and took bribes in the Lockheed Martin arms scandal, and his close friend Prince Phillip (the husband of the Elizabeth II) who in 1988 said that if he were reincarnated he would like to be a deadly virus to do something about overpopulation.

True to form, in its 2008 document Healthy People, Healthy Ecosystems: A Manual on Integrating Health and Family Planning into Conservation Projects the WWF advocated mass sterilisation of human beings. This research was produced with the help of Johnson & Johnson who were recently fined for putting asbestos in talcum powder. On Page 39 the WWF happily inform the reader:

…Projects also facilitate access to long-term methods [of sterilisation] such as IUDs (intrauterine devices) and permanent methods (vasectomy and tubal ligation), including organizing medical missions to travel to remote populations to deliver these services…….These efforts require particular care in ensuring that clients are fully informed and that all participation and choice is voluntary.”

The WWF, who think a healthy human being is an infertile one, is essentially a front organisation and fund raiser for the International Union for the Conservation of Nature which brings together globalist institutions like the World Bank, The European Commission, the United Nations and the US State Department.

The UK, and US governments, with the European Union, are also among the “partners” of the WWF. This gives us an insight into just how “independent” the CCDH are. It is also a glimpse at who it is that is collaborating with the social media and tech giants to establish the global censorship grid.

Despite its small size, it is clear that the CCDH pack a considerable punch. They do so because, via their labyrinthine connections, they have the backing of institutions like the World Bank, The European Union, intelligence agencies, major political parties, multinational corporations and governments from around the world. Some British Royal support never goes amiss either, and with the backing of groups like the WWF, is entirely as expected.

Their power-base is somewhat obscured through the network of NGO’s and globalist think tanks who partner with the CCDH and whom their board represent. However, by exposing these relationships, it’s pretty clear who the CCDH are and whose agenda they serve.

CCDH CEO Imran Ahmed

CCDH CEO Imran Ahmed graduated from the University of Cambridge with an MA in Social and Political Sciences. He did the obligatory stint in investment banking with Merrill Lynch, as a strategy adviser, before becoming a political aid to Labour Peer Hillary Benn.

In 2016 he supported Labour MP Angela Eagle in her failed leadership bid before establishing the CCDH (as Brixton Endeavours) in 2017.

With extensive links to the right wing of the Labour Party, given his government policy advisory role on the Commission on Countering Extremism Task Force, Ahmed’s apparent Technofascist tendencies are worrying. As we’ve already discussed, the CCDH meet the Commission on Countering Extremism definition of so called hateful extremists, however Ahmed’s personal views are particularly egregious.

He would like to see people who disagree with him imprisoned under anti-terrorist legislation. He recently stated:

I would go beyond calling anti-vaxxers conspiracy theorists to say they are an extremist group that pose a national security risk.”

In keeping with the objectives of the parliamentary Labour Party he represents, Ahmed fully supports State censorship. Talking about the need for the Online Harms Act, with regard to the people he labels as anti-vaxxers, he said:

It’s not just hatred……..There is no excuse for delay. The government must urgently table the online harms bill to put an end to vile hatred and dangerous medical misinformation online.”

Were Ahmed’s attempts to see people incarcerated for disagreeing with him not so dangerous, the irony that the CCDH’s Anti-Vax Industry report is brimming with quite staggering levels of misinformation would be hilarious. For example, talking about the highly qualified research scientist Dr Judy Mikovitz, whose well informed whistle-blower opinion Ahmed considers to be disinformation, the CCDH misleadingly report:

Mikovits enjoyed a recent surge in popularity after fronting a conspiracy theory video titled Plandemic which claimed the Coronavirus pandemic was planned in order for Bill Gates and others to profit from a vaccine.”

That is not what Mikovic or the film makers of Plandemic Part 1 said. Though basic research and honesty don’t seem to matter much to the CCDH. What does appear to matter to them is censorship that will rule out any challenge to the global political and business interests they defend.

To “evidence” their claim, rather than citing the film itself, they offer the spurious opinion of Taylor Hatmaker writing for TechCrunch.

TechCrunch are part of the Verizon Media empire, and Verizon are a participating business partner in the CCDH Stop Hate For Profit campaign. Verizon, formerly Oath inc, received $510,000 in 2016 from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in order to:

…Raise awareness and understanding of neglected diseases through content creation and engagement around immersive and 360 videos.”

While neither Mikovic nor the makers of Plandemic Part 1 said the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation “planned the epidemic” in order to “profit” from the vaccine, development of the vaccine is, nonetheless, heavily funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.

They have contributed $750 million to the Atrazeneca / Oxford vaccine alone. They also hosted Event 201 with the John Hopkins University and the World Economic Forum (WEF).

This planning meeting was a table top exercise of global public health “leaders” which just happened to model a global coronavirus pandemic weeks before a global coronavirus pandemic broke out. That it also modelled, in quite precise detail, the lockdown and media response we have seen to the global coronavirus pandemic is simply an amazing, almost completely unbelievable, coincidence. Apparently.

However, the CCDH don’t think you need to know this either, and they really don’t want you to watch Plandemic. So they have made up some stuff to put you off, and have then had the gall to claim their own disinformation is evidence.

But don’t take my word for it. Watch Plandemic and decide for yourself if the CCDH claims are plausible.

No one can say, with any categorical certainty, that the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation were party to planning the COVID 19 pandemic, thereby intending to profit from it. What can be said is that there is factual evidence clearly indicating this possibility.

There is also a significant conflict of financial interest pervading both the official account of the pandemic and organisations, such as WHO and Imperial College, who give policy makers the information they have used to formulate and justify their response. This fact isn’t disinformation, no matter what the CCDH want you to believe.

Not to ask these questions, or explore the evidence that prompts them, is antithetical the the very existence of a free society that values plurality of opinion. Yet somehow rank censors, like the CCDH, are among the many organisation who, while seeking to destroy our democratic values and customs, have the temerity to falsely claim the moral high ground.

CCDH Board Director Ayesha Saran

Following a very brief stint as an investigative journalist, Ayesha hopped between the UK Government Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE.) Finally settling to work for the Barrow Cadbury Trust (BCT) for the last 12 years or so. Ayesha is the Migration Program Manager for the BCT.

The BCT stated purpose included influencing public opinion. As part of their efforts they are partners with Access in the Connect Fund whose objective is to build a better social fund market.

The BCT partners, Access – the Foundation For Social Investment, were formed with the support of the Big Society Capital (BSC) and the UK government Cabinet Office.  Responsibility for managing the Connect Fund has now shifted to the House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee (DCMS), chaired by Ayesha’s fellow CCDH board director, Damian Collins.

The public are given the impression that the NGO sector and large charities are independent of the public-private partnership state. This is essentially a deception.

Sir Stuart Ethrington

Big Society Capital is funded by the UK’s leading private banks, Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group and RBS (now re-branded as Nat West Group.) The Connect Fund is a project of the Big Society Trust (BST) chaired by Sir Stuart Etherington, a member of the Economic and Social Committee of the European Union.

As chair of the BBC Appeals Advisory Committee, there won’t be much point complaining about CCDH disinformation reported without any scrutiny by the BBC.

Other BST board members include Ian Holmes, former Finance Director for BBC News and Current Affairs. Another is Robin Budenberg, Chair of the Crown Estate as well as chair UK Financial Investments which merged with the Shareholder Executive to become UK Government Investments (who manage the UK Government’s banking industry investment portfolio.) Direct oversight of BST by the UK Government is provided by Jo Fox from HM Treasury’s Corporate & Private Finance team.

This relationship between BCT and Access, via BST, is the epitome of how the NGO and charities shell game works. The Connect Fund doles out grants to charities who, though well meaning and staffed by honest, hard working people, are controlled at the board level by funding commitments ordained by the State and it’s corporate partners. They control the finance and the flow of information.

Someone like Ayesha, with a background in government and defence and security policy making organisations, is then appointed to a group like the CCDH, who can legitimately claim they are an NGO, despite the sprawling web of connections they have to government and the corporations. Ayesha may well have the very best of intentions but, via her connections to the Barrow Cadbury Trust, the network controllers stay abridged of the situation and can operate the levers of finance as and when required and make the decisions that count when they choose.

As we look at the Board Directors of the CCDH these connection become increasingly clear. Despite its claims of independence nothing could be further from the truth.

CCDH Board Director Lord Jonny Oats

Lord Jonny Oates is the former Chief of Staff to former UK deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Clegg is currently the Head of Global Affairs for the social media giant Facebook. With a background in public relations and political campaign management he received a life peerage in 2015. He’s a spin doctor.

From 2004 Oates was a director of the PR firm Bell Pottinger. This probably gave him a fantastic insight into fake news and propaganda. During his time as a director, the Pentagon were working with Bell Pottinger a to produce fake terrorist videos in Iraq. The contract, worth more than half a billion dollars, saw a Bell Pottinger team stationed at the U.S. Military base Camp Victory, in the summer of 2006.

As a former Director of Communications for Number 10 Jonny has plenty of experience in government. He also worked for the Westminster Foundation For Democracy. Another globalist governmental organisation with strong ties to the European Union, the World Bank, the United Nations and the OSCE who fellow CCDH board director Ayesha Saran worked for.

CCDH Board Director Simon Clark

Simon Clark

Simon is a non resident senior fellow for the policy think tank the Center for American Progress (CAP) and an adviser to the Scowcroft Group. He is also the Chairman of Foreign Policy for America (FP4A) where he is joined by many former US government officials and advisers including Dr Stephen Grand, senior fellow of the NATO think tank the Atlantic Council. Among the FP4A advisory board are Amb. Dan Baer, U.S. ambassador to the OSCE, and Avril Haines, former Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA.)

With a background in venture capitalism and investment management, Simon was also the first director of Web Services for the global news agency Reuters (called Thomson Reuters since 2008.) Simon was key in the efforts to build Fidelity’s European venture capital operation.

It is no surprise that CAP list the Fidelity charitable group among their major financial supporters. They are among the leading grant makers in the U.S, having committed more than $4.2 Bn to good causes, such as devising political policy, in 2020 alone. They manage an asset portfolio worth an estimated $30 Bn.

Rather than pay the tax that would theoretically allow the people to prioritise where the money is spent, the globalist class, often misnamed the elite, effectively withhold tax to pursue their own objectives. Fidelity is one of the leading investment management firms who channel their tax deductible investments to further their agenda.

This enables philanthropists like the Gates, the Carnegies, The Rockefellers, Soros and other globalist oligarchs to run their projects. These always advance their goals, objectives and business interests, while reducing their tax burden. All the aforementioned families finance the Center for American Progress who, through their FP4A Action Network (PAC), fund U.S. Democrat party candidates and election campaigns. This isn’t done in exchange for nothing.

The Center for American Progress recently proposed A Comprehensive COVID 19 Vaccine Plan. That policy assessment came directly from interviews with vaccine manufacturers. They recommended that, amid the process of funnelling billions of tax dollars directly into their business accounts, their pet politicians should:

Plan a massive vaccination campaign by recruiting medical experts, sports stars, celebrities, and community leaders and partnering with grassroots organizations and medical organizations.”

This massive, tax funded propaganda campaign is envisaged to change people’s behaviour. Rather than openly discuss the relative costs and benefits of vaccines, providing people with the facts and evidence they need to make their own judgement, CAP suggest using “country music stars, NASCAR drivers, and faith leaders” to change people’s opinions. The CCDH determination to roll out the flip side of this propaganda operation, namely the censorship grid, sits well with the commitments of its board director Simon, and the network of globalists he represents.

CCDH Board Director Kirsty McNeill

Aside from her role with the CCDH Kirsty is a member of the European Council of Foreign Relations (ECFR) Another globalist policy think tank whose stated objective is:

…To conduct cutting-edge independent research on European foreign and security policy and to provide a safe meeting space for decision-makers, activists and influencers to share ideas.”

Kirsty McNeill

It seems Kirsty only supports the activists and influencers who share her world view. Those who don’t agree with her should be censored and certainly don’t deserve any safe meeting spaces. Presumably, because the CCDH are totally independent and impartial, Kirsty forgets all about her commitment to European foreign and security policy when she takes her seat on the CCDH board.

As a member of the ECFR, she represents an organisation which is funded, not only by governments, but by the Atlantic Council (NATO), the Open Society Foundation (George Soros), The United Nations, the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Kirsty was a special adviser to the former UK Prime Minister and Labour leader Gordon Brown. As a staunch advocate for a New World Order he unsurprisingly said the global coronavirus pandemic was an opportunity to establish global a government. In 2015 Kirsty became Director of Policy at the Save The Children Fund (STCF) after her predecessor, Brendan Cox (also an ECFR member), resigned following allegations of sexual misconduct.

From 2016 to date, during Kirsty’s time as Policy Director, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) have donated more than $40 million to the STCF. None of which had any influence over the CCDH decision to describe ordinary citizens who question vaccines as fringe radicals and extremists. The STCF are also partners of the GAVI vaccine alliance created by the World Bank, UNICEF, the WHO and BMGF.

STCF say they are really worried about the horrific loss of children’s lives in Yemen. While most of them are starving to death or being blown to bits by Saudi and UAE supplied weaponry, the STCF are also very concerned that they aren’t getting enough vaccines. Perhaps their Director of Policy could help, because the ECFR Kirsty represents are also funded by the French weapons manufacturer Thales whose missile systems are being used to kill the children in Yemen. It isn’t known if Kirsty considers them to be extremists.

Board Director Damian Collins

The CCDH describe themselves as an international not for profit “non governmental organisation.” While many of their board members have links to government and policy makers, in Damian Collins they have cut out the middle man and simply given a seat on the board to a Member of Parliament for the ruling government party.

Damian isn’t just any old government back-bencher. As an A-Listed Chair of the House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee (DCMS) he has a central role in the governments efforts to roll out mass censorship. The DCMS responsibilities include advising (devising) policy related to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Online Harms. Damian is well placed in government to be part of the CCDH’s non governmental censorship operation.

The DCMS published their “Fake News” Report in February 2019. Obsessed with an imperceptible threat from Russia, despite acknowledging that the UK government had reported that they have “not seen evidence of successful use of disinformation by foreign actors, including Russia,” the DCMS, led by Damian, concluded:

The Government also cannot state definitively that there was no evidence of successful interference”

Damian Collins

That is to say, no evidence of something is considered to be proof that it might exist by the DCMS. The same logic means that unicorns and soup dragons are distinct possibilities.

What it really reveals is that, under Collins’ leadership, the DCMS has no interest in evidence, uncovering the truth or forming balanced conclusions. It has a clear agenda, in this case to demonise Russia, and the absence of any justification is no reason not to pursue it. With Damian on the board, the CCDH have adopted the same approach.

With the help and support of their influential network of government and non governmental backers, the CCDH have established themselves as an influential social media watchdog in a very short space of time. This is entirely in keeping with its board director Damian Collins’ plans for an Online Harms censorship grid. the DCMS state:

Social media users need online tools to help them distinguish between quality journalism, and stories coming from organisations that have been linked to disinformation or are regarded as being unreliable sources. The social media companies should be required to either develop tools like this for themselves, or work with existing providers, such as Newsguard.”

This statement is key to understanding the censorship grid that is being created. You are not encouraged to consider evidence and make up your own mind, but rather to trust the right, authoritative“sources” without question.

Those sources are the ones favoured by the government and its NGO and corporate partners. Any alternative media sources that question the State’s narrative will be deemed organisations linked to disinformation.

The DCMS recommended Newsguard is another truth-teller and fact checker which sells itself as a great bastion of epistemological certainty. Touting themselves as the Internet trust tool, they have created a handy browser extension that will automatically censor the Internet for you.

There is no attempt to encourage critical thinking, any independent research or intellectual autonomy, but rather a colour coded warning system, perfect for infants, that will do your thinking for you. Selected websites will receive Newsguard’s trust rating. This is based entirely upon a set of meaningless criteria, which sound great, but absolutely boil down to Newsguard’s bought and paid for opinion.

Newsguard’s founder and leading investor is Steven Brill. He is a member of the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) whose European branch (the ECFR) Kirsty McNeill graces. As a leading U.S. foreign policy think tank the CFR is arguably one of the most influential policy organisations on Earth.

It is likely that Newsguard’s advisers, such as Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former General Secretary of NATO, and Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA, share Brill’s enthusiasm for U.S. foreign policy objectives. Safe to say any source which questions U.S. foreign policy will be considered very untrustworthy by Newsgaurd.

As will anyone who questions vaccines. The French communications technology giant Publicis Group are among the seed funders that got Newsguard up and running with a $6 million cash injection.

One arm of their business is Publicis Health who boast highly lucrative accounts with a range of pharmaceutical giants and vaccine manufacturers, such as Astrazenaca and Sanofi, and were excited to announce their $1.5 Bn deal with the worlds leading vaccine corporation GlaxoSmithKline. No source questioning vaccines can expect a very high “trust rating” from Newsguard.

Damian Collins resigned as a trustee and Director of the neocon Henry Jackson Society in January 2017, a couple of months after becoming Chair of the DCMS. Damian is a signatory to the Henry Jackson Society Statement of Principles.

Those principles include a supremacist ideology that all countries should adopt the policies of so called western democracies, which are all controlled by global corporations; The HJS strongly support economic and political imperialism to assist countries to adopt essentially western corporate policies; they are enthusiastic advocates for UK, European and US military dominance, including U.K and US supremacy over European defence; the have unbridled admiration for NATO and the OSCE; crony capitalism (monopolies run by global corporations) is an HJS principle, but a true free market economy has to be “limited,” and they clearly state their firm belief that any nation that isn’t within the NATO, OSCE, western military industrial and intelligence complex sphere of influence is “illegitimate.”

Damian Collins wholeheartedly subscribes to these principles. Damian Collins supports the CCDH efforts to see anyone who questions vaccines silenced and, if they won’t shut up, imprisoned under anti-hate and possibly anti-terrorism legislation. Damian Collins is elected by the people. Or at least he was, until the government he represents banned all elections.

The CCDH Are Propagandists and Censors

Regardless of its claimed lofty ideals and feigned deference for freedom of speech and democracy, the CCDH represent a globalist cartel of monopolists who seek to utterly control society under their un-democratic, authoritarian rule. The CCDH are given the power they enjoy by this same cartel, and exercise it as part of a concerted effort to destroy everything they pretend to protect.

On behalf of the Technofascist clique they serve, they are systematically preparing the ground for a legislative censorship clampdown upon all dissent and opinion that question the ambitions and orders of their corporate and government masters. They exist in a fake environment of fake NGO’s and charities, deliberately constructed to exploit the good will of men and women who are labouring in a climate of fear created by, among others, the CCDH.

The families of vaccine injured children and those who have suffered injury themselves are not anti-vaccine. Each and every one of them followed medical advice and were either vaccinated or allowed their to child to receive vaccines. The scientists who have undertaken research which highlights concerns about vaccines are not anti-science nor opposed to vaccines. They aren’t pro-disease.

Nor are independent researchers and commentators like myself who have read the evidence and have some questions. I don’t want people to die from preventable illnesses and disease. I want vaccines to work. I want them to be everything the manufacturers say they are. But there are legitimate questions that need answers.

Contrary to the ludicrous allegations of the CCDH, it isn’t those who question vaccines that are making billions. It is those who adamantly declare their vaccine products are all perfect.

Led by someone like Imran Ahmed, whose rhetoric is so vicious he describes people who ask any questions about vaccines as vile, hateful, extremists, the CCDH are a particularly nasty and corrosive organisation. Nothing they say is plausible and all they have is propaganda which they cannot defend. All they can do is silence critics with their pernicious brand of vitriolic censorship.

The CCDH is not the defender of democracy, it cares nothing for our traditions and customs, nor our precarious free speech and freedom of expression. It wants to end all of it and unless we wake up and see these corporate censors and propagandists for who they truly are, we will have everything we value torn from us. We will have no one and nothing to blame but our own apathy.

can you spare $1.00 a month to support independent media

Unlike the Guardian we are NOT funded by Bill & Melinda Gates, or any other NGO or government. So a few coins in our jar to help us keep going are always appreciated.

To Mr. Iain Davis, thank you for an extraordinary piece of scholarship and due diligence.

A retired health care provider of 45 years, pharmacist/chemist with Big Pharma experience (2+ decades GSK and previous incarnations thereof) and great familiarity with vaccine development, infectious diseases, immunity and a host of other valuable understandings and experiences, this alleged world public health emergency/crisis and, eventually pandemic, hit my radar screen in mid-January. I knew, instantly, that this matter, from the outset, would spin out of control, by design, with great speed.

I was not disappointed! At first, alarmed, then, quite at ease, I quickly allowed my logical inclinations and understanding of biological science to take hold. I refused to allow the media and political circuses to gain control of my emotions. Then helping family, friends and associates to shed their fear through prudent precaution and self education. Life is far too short to live in fear, especially contrived terror.

Accusations of a weaponized virus launch, the eventual shut down of world travel (after the releases of the Trojan Horses of China), the mass uncertainty and terror, the propensity for public panic driven by scientifically inept politicians and a media willing to meet the propaganda needs of the masters driving the NWO bus, I became a voracious reader of the politics and the science behind it all. It has taken months of my time to get a handle on the aspects of what we face and what forces drive the narrative.

If “Truth” were an element on the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, it would, indeed, be the rarest of all elements! So rare, it is ethereal at best and virtually non-existent at worst. No politician, government agency, NGO, nor corporate entity, especially Big Pharma and biotech, would ever let a good crisis go to waste.

You have in this two part series, masterfully connected the dots and spelled out the agendas, named names and Non-profit organizations (money launderers), NGO’s, governmental agencies, and other groups with wonderfully benign, wholesome monikers (World Wildlife Fund) and exposes them for what they are and what they represent.

Malthusians all, deserving recipients of all the disdain, dare I say hatred, that good people everywhere could muster. Why do we let these people walk among us?

I am more that willing to take my rightful place in the “Pantheon of Haters“ as described by the CCDH as one who still worships at the temple of the Scientific Method, knowing full well that there are now powers and perverters of such immense wealth, that even once honest scientists and researchers can name their price and be paid handsomely by their research underwriters to deliver whatever swill the agenda drivers demand to meet their ultimate goal of a totalitarian public/private partnership.

A tip of the cap to you and many of the excellent writers of some additive observational posts that date back a few days. My understanding of the big picture is now completely up-to-date and I clearly see the task at hand.

This is not the case, as the asbestos was associated with talcum naturally.

Just goes to show: if you go to uni, do a useless degree and fail to start a career, there is hope. Join some political chop-shop and demonstrate your propensity to kiss ass and be a milk-curdling yes-creep. You will be spotted by some agent of the powers that be and that lump of cream cheese will take your desperate ass and promote it into a totally unrealistic position – given your skills – and you can still “make it” and live in a respectable neighbourhood.

Loyalty and desperation are traits sought by the oligarchs.

I hate to say it but all sorts of companies are full of these sorts of weasels, but the more desperate they are the more weasely they are: this lot probably literally mark their territory, pissing all over the office.

Otherwise called “selling your soul to the devil”.

I subscribe to my own view on it, I don’t read things and then decide what I think afrter chattign with others. I have lots of views on it, the essay has been ripped off countless times by NLP “gurus” and business coaches. There is only ‘another’? I would have have made the brother of all fuck ups and presmed there were more than 2 schools of thought on anything…..

Well congratulations for the biggest non-sequitur of all time. Is mentioning the word “Jew” a Left wing thing? Perhaps it’s names beginning with “A”? (“argentine” “Ahmed”) Is it because I used the word “divert”?

But if you want to redefine “left wing” as “stuff I hate even though I can’t explain myself” then go ahead!

Yes, I know what YOU said, Ælfræd. I just couldn’t see any connection with anything previous. But I now realise that you really don’t understand the point I was making – which I thought was screamingly obvious. The above article goes into the dodgy activities of one Imran Ahmed. The article at no point refers to his “Jewishness”.

But then one “argentine” says “Ahmed is a Jew, kill him” and thus tries to make the above article look like anti-Semitism. It’s a drearily familiar tactic. And it seems – jaw droppingly enough – that you have fallen for it!

All of which leads me to two possible conclusions: either that you are part of the same con as “argentine” or you are so blinded by your mysterious but obsessive grievance against the Left that you don’t know what’s staring you in the face.

“argentine” has posted twice with exactly the same tactic and is clearly trying to divert the matter onto an anti-Semitic track.

Your initial reponse was:

“This board is rampant with this kind of stuff. I’ve always said hitler was left wing.”

“This board” occasionally features anti-Semitic material, some of which I am sure is agent provocateur bullshit cf. “argentine”. I have never seen anything to suggest that this comes from the Left – which is what you are clearly implying with that “hitler was left wing”.

Argentine, I understand your frustration, the Jews do occupy a lot of powerful positions and are very good at working together to benefit each other – team work – to the exclusion of gentiles, which is probably why this guy is leading this company.

But, that said, Zero Hedge is a better place to vent those sorts of feelings. I think the OG is subject to the UK hate speech laws, which ZH is not, so you probably will not get an honest reply from the mostly British crowd on here. Opression, you can’t easily get away from it.

Fantastic article: very well researched; very detailed and I’m sure that it is thoroughly on the money. But so what?

The longterm problem in the resistance against Technofascism is to understand it and render it “inoperable”. How: by listing facts?

Facts – and states of affairs – are theory laden interpretations: that is, if we want to look at Technofascism through a Kuhnian lens (toward a ‘paradigm shift’ away from Technofascism – aka the Misphilosophy of Man – and toward an emergent universal* humanism).

[* I use the term universal tentatively – mutatis mutandis – as an already rectified (so-called) “thin” universalism (inclusive of equalities of multiplicities of diversities) ….as an anti-metaphysical polemic].

What is a paradigm? It is pretty clear by now that no one – very probably including Kuhn himself (who backtracked – under enormous pressure – from the most radical of his conclusions) – actually knows. If we all chant ‘Aum’ on Friday at 12am: can we raise the vibration of consciousness and ‘shift the paradigm’?

A clearer idea of what Kuhn meant comes from his later vocabulary – of “disciplinary matrices” and, more tellingly, “taxonomical lexicons”. A paradigm is a linguistic category (or set of categories): a lexicon of descriptive – and therefore of cognitively biased and value-laden – pre-figured suppositions and assumptions that are formative of ‘normal science’. The normative paradigm pre-determines the empirical results and constrains them to the already known. Which is a circular auto-epistemology ….if the bias of science is not accounted for.

This is not anti-science. Science moved on (more under the influence of Popper that Kuhn). But scientism remains in the general universe of discourse. Bourdieu (pace Husserl) called them “passive doxa”: the unquestioned, value and theory-laden, and biased assumptions that underpin the daily discursions [sic]. All of them. And underlying the paradigmatic assumptiveness of the universe of discourse is another set of assumptions …a founding set of the unconscious Episteme. Rather than being the firm foundations of all discourse: they are all categorial errors.

From Aristotle through Auschwitz to Agamben and beyond: human reality has been in categorial error.

From Aristotle to Searle: you will find the same theory ….the linguistic categories we use not only frame the paradigmatics of the discourse: they define what sort of reality we can know. Which is a split reality: of a hyper-determinate objectivated division; and an ultra-indeterminate subjectivated division. Which is the dualistic and sectarian basis of the mechanism and industrialised destruction assaulting the world. If you are looking for the root paradigms of a cancel-culture: then one must negate the other. That is misphilosophy of Man…where ontology and meontology (Being and Nothingness) cancel each other out. For real.

What the fuck is he going on about seems to be the response at to trying to get to the root of the root of the problems we all face. Put simply: we cannot change the political reality by lists of facts or aversive discourse to the Technofascist necropower. We have to understand the totalitarian Leviathan more deeply than it understands itself. It’s the language: which is the repertoire of categorial interpretation, knowing, and understanding. If we use the same dualistic categorial error structure that manifested the neoliberal necropower: we can only ever reproduce the same neoliberal necropower. In a circular and scientific samsara of auto-recuperation.

Please stop thinking that a mere change of a paradigmatic descriptivism is a useless praxis. How do you bring a bloody, severed, and sectarian reality into being outside of naming, identifying, categorising, and realising automatically? You don’t. We can change social reality by recategorising it linguistically.

The new epistemic and paradigmatic categories – mutatis mutandis – develop from the bio-cognitive realisation of the nonduality and co-evolutionary potential of human and ecological co-embodiment. That is the nondifference of humanity and nature. We co-exist as intra-actant cognisers of life within life ….or we probably will cease to co-exist with anything at all ….except through the apotheosis of the theanthropogenic god-like principle of happiness pursued through libertarian identitarianism and the privatisation of property to the exclusion of all else ….which is the Sovereign droit de glave (thanatopolitical right to kill).

Which basically means we are reluctant neoliberals until the end. We cannot change our tradition except by changing ourselves: which we do through meditation and the redescription of a reality with us in it. Yes, it is a bit twelfth hour: but no one would listen to those who said “It’s the language” – or it is the Canonical Western Intellectual Tradition – that is the categorial source of a Technofascist knowing. Which is a result of a bad infinity and bad transcendental Misphilosophy of Man ….embalmed in linguistic practices.

It is the language: it will always be the language. When ‘knowing’ is founded on two overvaulting and antisymmetric ‘real’ categories – of being and not-being; self and other; and subject and object – and the meaning of language is the relation of the two dead, embalmed categories ….how fucked up is the knowing going to be? An absolute totality of Technofascist Sovereignty?

It’s the language. Until a new discourse can be started – toward a new Episteme of nondualism and a new universal humanist paradigmatic set of linguistic categories – it will always be the language. The facts remain the same when the paradigm changes: only the knowing and the interpretative ‘world’ changes. It is how we know the facts: not the the listing of the facts that will change the way we live.

The Great Unwashed Masses live via directives of the English Language and concomitant epistemological belief systems that tradition promulgates via literature and cultural norms, folkways, and social mores.

Universality can be obtained via Systems Theory and the language of Cybernetics proper. The Social Science Cognitive discipline is the only way forward for humanity and humanitarians alike.

Systems Theory and resultant language of Cybernetics is pretty much value neutral as a universal operating system of language that can indeed undermine the neoliberal non-universal totalitarian state hegemony of language and discourse.

My educational background is the proverbial University of Life. I did a philosophy foundation course with the aim to doing PPS (Politics, Philosophy, Sociology) – but never completed my degree. Drifted into the Deep Ecology scene around Findhorn and Zen at Throssel Hole Priory. The rest is a very eclectic history.

FWIW: I think an ecosophical systems science incorporating Maturana’s bio-cognition, languaging, and Varela’s later enactivism (which incorporates the ecodharma) is the Way out of this shithole of our own making. As Thich Nhat Hanh said: “We are here to heal our separation”. In the spirit of Maturana: the human-nature symbiosis is the first category of a biology of love.

Humberto Maturana was assigned reading back in 1995 when I was doing my Experimental Psychology degree and majoring in Personality Theory. Maturana’s _A Frog’s Eye View of the World_ [Journal of Personality] was the only paper I have read thus far. Maturana’s ecological perspective is cool stuff, but the Neurosciences would reduce him to mere neurotransmitter and synapse on Oxytocin.

Love can be reduced to insanity as well. And the insanity defense is legal definition only.

You should have majored in Personality Theory as I did. Your Zen eclecticism is core being and self. It is core of your personality. IMHO you quit your degree because you were on the wrong path at the time and the degree did not coincide with the path you wanted to pursue.

If you had stuck with formal education you would be a doctor by now, eh.
Not to belabor the point but you can still get that degree and more given where you left off on the School of Hard Knocks.

And if the degree thing is outdated for you there is always writing and authorship of books. You are intelligent enough to do whatever you want to do IMHO.

Good luck taking on the current necropolitical power structure with a gun. They are waiting for that to justify the completion of a totalitarian Technofascism. In the spirit of Gramsci: we have got to be a bit smarter than that. The weakness’ are in the fact that power reproduces itself as a natural and inevitable unfolding of history ….aka the Hegelian-Kojevian ‘End of History’ thesis. Which is total bollox, and everyone – except Fukayama – knows it. There is a moral, political, juridical. ethical, right and just highground to be taken. Which we could walk right into and hold, one day! History and law are on our side: science too …if we learn how to use them.

Sometimes, holding tight is more damaging, than letting go …

It would have been a futile waste of your (or my) time, trying to discuss or illuminate, in the face of such publicly perceived propagation of yet another illusory terror, to mask the enormity of corruption. In the dualistic sense, as you wisely highlight, we would have made ourselves complicit. Far better to focus on direction, way closer to home , which is where Tolstoy was signalling, when he suggested that there would be only one permanent revolution: and that it would come from within the hearts and minds of the people. The moral one…

So glad you took the time and to have you back, fitter than ever in your mind.
Yep, it’s the language, no question, you nailed it as always, combined with lost values and fake incantations bringing an arrogant intonation from those in the public eye, that demonstrates zero respect for harmony in a life of indicovidualism,
Let alone individualism and the development of an awareness of self, morally.
Like you, wherever & whenever possible, the avoidance of violent radical reactionary recourse, has been a lifelong crutch, for me, in avoiding the vortex of ever decreasing circular motion down the plughole of dualism… and as a child, without prompting from others, i always considered ‘The Prince’ as a profound psychological warning to ‘self’, that needed nurture, love and respect.

“The long term problem in the resistance against Technofascism is to understand it and render it “inoperable”. How: by listing facts?

This is a crucial point, which you elaborated comprehensively, especially here: 

…Put simply: we cannot change the political reality by lists of facts or aversive discourse to the Technofascist necropower. We have to understand the totalitarian Leviathan more deeply than it understands itself. It’s the language: which is the repertoire of categorial interpretation, knowing, and understanding. If we use the same dualistic categorial error structure that manifested the neoliberal necropower: we can only ever reproduce the same neoliberal necropower. In a circular and scientific samsara of auto-recuperation.

I couldn’t agree with you more. We are not going to “defeat” the technofascists. By engaging in the battle we lose. It cannot be any other way, because to engage we must accept the duality, and accept our point of opposition, which ultimately can only ever result, at some point, in continuation of the same. 

I wrote a list of facts, not because I propose some form of opposition, but because I recognise many are not aware of the nature of the beast we all face. Which is the one you have described. Its intrinsic nature is deception, to hide its intent, and before we can search for solution, we must “understand the totalitarian Leviathan more deeply than it understands itself.” Totalitarian reductionists masquerading as moral bastions of truth. 

May I respectfully suggest the first step in that process is seeing, or acknowledging, the Laviathon. I hope that by exposing the evidence which reveals it, more will recognise it for what it is. I do understand that the first response, once the beast can be seen, it to oppose it, but this is necessary (in my view) before the search for the solution can lead us to nondualism. Which can be expressed politically in the voluntarism of the Agora.

By positing an opposition: we immediately assume the Beast is outside us ….and we can stand against it. From the proposed nondual view: this is the observer who is exterior to the observed system. Who is a passive and neutral observer: unable to either participate or intervene. This traditional view has all but dissipated our constitutive power for real change (not merely a change in the personnel who administer an unchanged system of power).

A nondual transformation – a radical transformation or real change – has to come from the acceptance that we are the Leviathan. Or we are (voluntarily) within the belly of the Leviathan. Which is in fact a politico-juridical given. We, the People, are the dual person of the subject – as the subordinates of rule – but also, we retain the Sovereignty. So many of the descriptions (in fact, nearly all of them) I have seen in the last few months split us off from our Sovereign power to leave us as purely slaves. Voluntary slaves to our own alienated constitutive power and lost autonomy.

When the People voluntarily give up their constitutive power to the fossilised dogma of the always already constituted necropower: we are already in a Technofascist dreamworld. Or nightmare world, as it turns out. With no power of restitution.

What can happen – which is not to say it will happen – is the People can retain their autonomy, constitutive power, and Sovereignty – to create a person-centred, other-centred, human-scaled world ….rendering the trans-national ‘global society’ of self-maximising money multiplication oncology [sic(k)] “inoperable”. This world – a social real – has to be brought forth out of a restituted act of language

What largely has to change for this is not the ‘external’ historic circumstances (globalised political economy): but the ‘internal’ historic contingencies. In reality: there is not even a bio-physical dialectic in place ….except as a figurative metaphor. There is only a nominal difference – and ontological nondifference – between ‘inner’ and ‘outer’. There can be an active “human-nature symbiosis” whereby the passive, externalised subject can become the active Sovereign of a new natural law. We did this in antiquity across an ever widening nature-cultural divide – which has proved to be an abomination of natural law. In short: the resulting economised Man – Homo Oeconomicus – can yet become fully human.

No one wants fucking globalisation! Expecting ‘them’ to change is just completely futile. We have to positively embody and enact the changes we want in the world by using our constitutive power to heal the world’s separation by healing ourselves ….decolonising our cognition from an unnatural dualistic division and dereifying the institutions of separation. Too many of the People seem to think they can stay the same and the world will change for them. The Leviathan is within. Or we are within the belly of a Leviathan constituted by our own power ….a juridico-political constitution brought forth in language. Linguistic constructs of hyper-individualism, mechanism (causal dependency), anthropocentrism (culture/ nature separation), progress (permanent growth imperative) ….brought forth from categorial separation externalising the ‘world’ from our constitutive power to heal. In short, the linguistic categories we have inherited justify an econometric world of disembodied, unlimited, and unconditioned minds in search of an elusive happiness in pursuit of private property. Which is costing us the Earth. Time for the true Sovereign to categorially reign that in.

Well said. I agree though perhaps we differ on the issue of private property.

For me the pursuit of private property (causing harm or loss to others) is very much the belly of the beast we all live in but it differs from the holding of private property (as an individual sovereign human being) which does not cause harm or loss to others.

This gets us into discussions on resources and scarcity which I won’t raise here and is somewhat of a side issue. Save to say it is not that the world has too few resources, nor that there are too many of us, but rather that too few control all the resources.

But I absolutely agree that we are trapped in the Leviathan which I will call the system. Firstly globalist, then devolving down through the layers of the pyramid, via corporations, governments and local governments, wrapped in our financial systems and childish political systems, it is us, all of us, who maintain this Leviathan. We do indeed create it ourselves. Or rather, we have been trained to create it ourselves.

Ultimately it does not serve us, the people, it only serves the interests of those who control all the resources. We are now living through the process of the resource controllers extending their grasp over nature itself, which they seek to steal solely for their own benefit at the exclusion of the rest of humanity. While we still cling to this system it will remain. No matter what protest or changes we make.

The system we live in, that we give renewed life to every day, is the Leviathan and all it will ever do is consume us. Fascism, Communism, Socialism, Capitalism are merely tentacles of the system.

The system is the belief in authority and all evil, oppression, injustice and enslavement always springs from this belief. Seeking to change one system of authority for another, may provide some with temporary relief, or provide temporary advantage, but while the belief in authority remains, so does the Leviathan and it will continue to destroy us.

I keep trying to explain context, why these thing are happening to us, even in Europe. Why Covids is happening and why political and why economic earthquakes are shaking our countries: It is mainly due to the machinations of the largest empire in History, where even a ripple will shake us to our core.
The USA’s paralysis over it’s runaway debt, it’s banking crisis, it stretched military budget, the brooding civil unrest, the elites looting of the national treasury, which is finally undermining the worlds reserve currency, the golden goose that keeps the USA afloat, is an unnecessary paralysis.
It is a mystery to me, why they are so fixed on such a suicidal route. There are alternative ways out of this mess they are in, that offer some hope of stability. They could rise taxes, up interest rates and ride the recession that follows, doing their best to preserve the dollar and help their population and reducing the mass civil unrest, and food riots, coming….but they really can’t do it. It is somehow impossible as the country is currently structured.
The detachment, callus, remoteness and greed of the Washington elite is so blind, so driven, that they would rather a dictatorship than share their wealth with a desperate, destitute, population.
It seems it is an absolute political impossibility to change their course, there is a brick on the accelerator, put their by their own greedy elite, who want more and more of our wealth in Europe and who are cannibalizing their own populations wealth until they are nothing more than dried out corpses.
There is no way that the USA will function as anything like a democracy after November 2020. This election is their last, in an already fraudulent democracy. Finally their deep state, an alliance of the military and surveillance machine will do away with even the pretense of a democracy, in the final coup and decisions will be made in the interests of a very small elite by executive orders and the population will fall victim to all kinds of unreported horror.

Just need to recap what I think I know and what is actually true or likely.

1: So the W.H.O over a decade ago had the word “pandemic” redefined argueing that the word was simply too scary and it needed to be redifined as to soften its meaning? Then fast forward a decade or so and the W.H.O along with the governments, the world bank, and mainstream media decide to scare the fuck out of everyone they can by using the very word they redifined as it was considered too scary, to scare us? Isn’t it more likely they redifined with this moment in mind? and they needed to downgrade its definition so this bollocks of a virus can be classified as a pandemic? Would this virus given what we know been called a pandemic before the W.H.O decided it needed to mean something else entirely?

2: Depsite claims by some, (some oxford prof on twitter, looks like a shill?) that all four Koch postulates have been met, they haven’t? and if they haven’t it is more likely because if they did try, they would fail and discover this is simply a variation of the flu?

3: That under 500 people to date have died solely of “covid1984” where there have been no KNOWN other comorbidities? The lack/ban? of post mortems on the deceased is to keep this hoax going and if it was not a hoax and it truly was a deadly virus threatening us all, wouldn’t they have conducted post mortems as a matter of urgency and scientific discovery? Procedure wise how does this compare with the Hong Kong Flu in the UK? I am guessing it is more likely they have thrown away all protocols simply to fit the fairy tale they are trying to spin and again, if they was to allow the normal protocols then they would very well find themselves facing stiff prison sentences?

It is one of those days where I wonder do I really know anything? I would like to think I am on the money, need to feel more confident in what I am saying, as I am getting increasingly more vocal, the more confident I am in my position the more louder I will get, can’t and will not accept this lunacy any longer, already I am scowling at fit healthy people wearing masks, and shop workers, soon the checkout assistants will become targets, I might very well just fill my trolley up go through checkout whilst engineering a bit of a kefuffle to simply walk away leaving it all there and telling them wear to go, just make sure the person behind me is wearing a mask as would hate to cause an inconvience to a sane person.

I thought the law was for the plebs to wear them when in stores in England, I am in Wales where there is no such law but still the halfwits persist. There is one particularly nasty checkout assistant who has managed to piss quite few off, myself included, I could let it go, but nah, across the road there is a B&M the staff there do have to wear ppe and most are so blooooody cheerful and make it known they don’t like wearing it and how they wouldnt if they didnt need the money, then we have an Aldi where the staff dont have to wear masks or ppe just have the screens at the tills, they too are awesome, have had quite a few chats there where the concensus is they really dont believe it, one even said to me if it was true, they would have all been dropping like flies. So perhaps I should have made that more clearer about the Hitleresque type till assistants, staff and any other fucker who wants some 😉

You seem to imagine that it is credible that literally millions of health workers, including doctors, porters, ambulance drivers etc, in most of the countries of the world, have been co-opted into taking part in a conspiracy so monstrous that the imagination fails, and that this is a credible proposition.

Are you saying they never redefined what “pandemic” means? if so how is it there are plenty of articles about them doing it when one elects to scrub out 2019/2020 from the search criteria.

“Contrary to what is often preached in conventional mass media and taught half-heartedly in schools, virtually all serious decision-making is secretive; i.e., conducted out of public view. Naturally almost all business (corporate) decisions are taken secretly by management and announced once they have been taken. The same is generally true for all governmental operations, especially in a society that values business practices more than democratic ones. The government in a parliamentary system may occasionally lose a division or plenary vote. However, the plenary session is not where the bills are drafted or chosen for decision. All of these “democratic” preparations are taken in meetings from which the general public is excluded, but those with a special interest in the acts to be adopted are explicitly included.

This is no more clearly the case than now when most of the European Union is subject to siege regulations that were never debated in public and for which no democratic regulation is provided, especially to provide an end to it all.

Hence those who read further and feel their knee tensions rising, waiting to jerk at any moment with the expletive “conspiracy theory” should bear the foregoing in mind. The controversies found on all sorts of websites and in chat groups are not about whether there are conspiracies (those who do not use the word avoid it out of cowardice or ignorance) but what is the nature and content of the conspiracy or conspiracies that substitute for public health policy and democratic decision-making in the current crisis?”

Very interesting. But the author seems to concede that the ‘deep state’ or whatever you want to call them, are far-seeing, efficient, undivided and intelligent.

I refuse to accept that. The people we are opposing are just people – they have internal divisions, they can’t see the future, they labour under the disadvantages of being detached from ordinary life, being competitive capitalists, being fundamentally right-wing and therefore being inflexible, more inclined to stupidity, having authoritarian tendencies, which are generally disadvantageous to clear thinking, and being just as subject to fucking up things as anyone else, and having to try to coerce a whole world full of people, not all of whom are brainwashed or stupid.

These latest conspiracy theories that they “caused the Virus” or that “masks are a ploy to make everyone subservient” are just terminal stupidity.

Marx gave a clear understanding of who the enemy was, and what they were attempting to do, 150 odd years ago – there is no need to change that understanding, with the exception that we now have to take on board that the world, its inhabitants and its resources are finite.

You are trying to ridicule the idea of “deep state” and “conspiracy” by driving the concept to an extreme. It is not a vast over-arching unified group. (That takes us into the field of “Grand Conspiracy” whereby one group has been controlling everything for millennia. It comes as no surprise that this kind of idea merges easily with supernatural/science fictional notions about aliens, Atlantis etc.)

But I think Marx himself would be amused at how the very concept of conspiracy has become, as Michael Parenti once said, a kind of “intellectual leprosy”. That tainting of the idea of conspiracy is very definitely a matter of deliberate psychological moulding of a similar type to the one that ridicules the welfare state.

I don’t have any problem with most of what you say. Yes, the people we are opposing are “just people”, although you quite correctly modify that statement with “they labour under the disadvantages of being detached from ordinary life”. This, of course, is a class issue. And they are all serving capitalism which follows the iron law of profit maximisation. No-one can see the future, but these ones are in an advantageous position re: power and opportunity. They are looking out for their class and they are trying to look into the future as far as possible.

I’m not sure I would define them as “inflexible”. Sure there is inflexibility with that profit motive but in order to facilitate that motive I think these rulers are capable of any amount of manoeuvring.

I think the bit about coercing people is wide of the mark. People are already coerced because they are ultimately ruled by the brutal fact that they need a livelihood and cannot afford to “rock the boat”. There is also the matter of a mainstream media which is under the control of the rulers. And yes, I know there is a certain amount of leeway in the media, but the brutal bottom line is that it’s the money that decides what media organs are most visible. Any amount of “alternative views” can be expressed but only on the margins where they can easily be disparaged as “nutty”. All of this means that public “freedom” of opinion is compromised by a media that constantly misleads.

I don’t think the rulers “caused” the virus. My own view is that the virus is real but is nowhere near as deadly as is being made out. A crash was on its way anyway and the rulers are masking it (no pun intended) behind this virus – which will get the blame for it. Also, we have the basic form of an emerging police state, justified by the “emergency”.

You end up with Marx who I have the highest respect for – but once again I say that he would have been bemused by this demonisation of “conspiracy theory”. Of course, there are conspiracies. They happen all the time. It’s how everyone operates – the rulers who want to maintain power and, hopefully, the ruled who will start to make plans for themselves.

All of your post is pretty unarguable with, but:

You say “People are already coerced because they are ultimately ruled by the brutal fact that they need a livelihood and cannot afford to “rock the boat”

This is of course true, but the consequence of that is that real, revolutionary change can only come in circumstances where these strictures no longer apply, and people become both desperate and liberated from day to day concerns, as mere survival becomes difficult.

I imagine that the crisis of capitalism will not precede but follow the ‘crisis of resources’, ‘crisis of water and food supply’, and ‘crisis of global warming and climate change’ which are imminent, (i.e. within the next 20/30 years) and that then there is a good chance to get rid of capitalism.

Of course, what I can imagine, the forces of reaction can imagine too. I think that current attempts at migration control are in preparation for trying to control a potential mass movement of populations from south to north. My hope however, is that the great mass of humanity can overcome the reactionaries through sheer weight of numbers. In that light the current Covid crisis is not even a dress rehearsal.

Then the problem becomes – how to ensure that we get a fairer society, rather than a different kind of oppression. Enter Marx, Bakunin, Trotsky, Proudhon, et al.

Regarding the millions of health workers, merely doing one’s job does not make one a co-conspirator. It is entirely possible to treat the effects of even an overblown “pandemic” without having been co-opted – at least without being aware of having been co-opted.

Not everyone (present company included) has the time to research everything – although something which presents as wildly anomalous to normal procedure certainly warrants research.

Dr Sucharit Bhakdi is a specialist in microbiology. He was a professor at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and head of the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene and one of the most cited research scientists in German history.

Dr Wolfgang Wodarg is a German physician specialising in Pulmonology, politician and former chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. In 2009 he called for an inquiry into alleged conflicts of interest surrounding the EU response to the Swine Flu pandemic.

Dr Joel Kettner s professor of Community Health Sciences and Surgery at Manitoba University, former Chief Public Health Officer for Manitoba province and Medical Director of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases

Dr John Ioannidis Professor of Medicine, of Health Research and Policy and of Biomedical Data Science, at Stanford University School of Medicine and a Professor of Statistics at Stanford University School of Humanities and Sciences. He is director of the Stanford Prevention Research Center, and co-director of the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS).

Plus quite a few others are, sadly, the very stuff of the Dunning-Kruger Effect it would seem. So sad.

These two articles made me look up what goes on elsewhere. Is the ccdh’s French equivalent the observatoire de la haine en ligne which has become operative since the end of July 2020? It does seem to include organizations that do raise questions. However it also includes one called la quadrature du net. I know nothing about any of this. From its wepage the latter does seem to be genuinely campaigning for freedom and the end of surveillance and censorship. Does anyone know anything?

To tell the truth, at this point everything is so evil and complex, having come across people that genuinely seemed to be on the forefront of the covid anti-narrative who may actually be covertly working for the narrative, that Im willing to believe that what seems white is in effect black disguised as white and conversely.

Possibly in the end our only means of defense is our simple straightforward honesty. We should certainly be aware of the complex evil which we are faced with and those who can should courageously and relentlessly investigate and denounce. Yet we will always remain far behind: by the time we find anything out, the level of evil would have worsened…
(I knew things werent good, and knew much, but I feel Ive followed a crash course in evil doings in the last months, a course with both theory and its newest application).

We need to return to simple values, the same values that were upheld millennia ago, and that have remained unchanged because these values are what define us as human.
We have to reinstate those values in all ways we can, in all ways available to each of us.
Only like that will humanity triumph once again. The evil now is too strong, too complex, it has powers which even united we wont have access to. We cant defeat it in a direct attack.
We have to do something which this evil is not ready for.

My way of countering cancel culture and digital hypocrisy is to tell of an endearing incident that happened to me today:

The promised delivery didn’t happen this morning so off we went to collect some chicken from a farm some 20 miles away. Crap weather, very dull and misty, the usual crap british summer after storms and lightening all night – collected the goods and returned home via the local town where images of the ‘maskpeople’ reverberated everywhere – they were out in force, standing outside the pub with masks on chatting, going in and out of shops with their masks around their necks, routinely following regime instructions even without knowing why ….

Arrived home to find no delivery but a card – going to deliver tomorrow now – but the driver added to the card – and I quote – ” I completely agree with all your signs – well done!!” – we regularly have posters on our front door about the scam

Dead chuffed – so we had a lovely late lunch of sirloin steak (from our favourite Lake District butcher) and a bottle of Pontet-Canet Pauillac – fuck ’em

Yes. There are far too many people who are willing to ascribe almost superhuman powers and insight to the ‘deep state’ or the oligarchy. Thus all the ‘masks are to accustom the populace to subservience’ and ‘Covid is a conspiracy, hardly anyone has died’ and all the rest of the tripe these people come out with.

The truth is that while billionaire oligarchs probably do co-operate to a certain extent, and that there do exist loose conspiracies to allow them to perpetuate their positions, they are not as well organised as your local co-op. But it would suit them for these ‘superhuman’ lies to be accepted as true. No doubt that’s why they exist.

Exactly. This right and left slogan is keeping society divided. Sincerely,
what used to be left values for many, were simply to try to put within the social structure the simple notion that when someone needs help, like is ill, or unable to work, or whatever, then others (society) should help. That everyone has the right to some minimal, like food, shelter, and clothing.
And it should not be forgotten that much of the resistance in France and elsewhere were communists, who gave their life. That without the USSR’s population’s amazing sacrifice, goodness knows what would have happened. Im talking of Nazism. The common socialist or communist has been at the forefront of every social fight in most of the 20th century. Every single person owes much of the social advantages they may have enjoyed in life to them.

There is no left today. Just like science has been perverted into scientism, it has been perverted into immorality, just like conservative values have been perverted into parochialism and a rejection of others: the other.

We see today where all these 3 perversions have led us to:
Under the dogma of scientism, human cooperation and the harmony and unity among the diversity been perverted into a profit-dominated globalization and uniformization, and the rejection of others, has resulted in each individual becoming now the other for everyone else, the other who is going to infect them and make them die.

In a way, what Bernays said about the small number of people controlling the public mind may not be so true. The essence of the mind is that it is not quite the same thing as the body, and that separation gives people at least the illusion that they have some control over their own bodies.
I think, in essence, that this small number of people are controlling our bodies, and not our minds. Large numbers of us know that something is very wrong with what the “authorities” are dumping on us right now. Our minds have grasped that, but our bodies are fearful of the consequences of doing something about it.
After all – at least as I see it – the politicians of the world are all in it. That means their numbers are so large that they can always hide behind each other, like the spineless scum they are, secure in the knowledge that countless others are perpetrating exactly the same moral crimes against their own society.
How do you pick on one of them in order to ridicule and shame them? They are everywhere – planted, cloned and bred over recent decades – the Body Snatchers and the Midwich Cuckoos of the 21st Century. They already have our bodies where they want them, but our minds…?

It’s hard to disagree with what you say. Sam Harris and his fellow neuro-scientists notwithstanding, the mind really does seem to be a somewhat separate entity from the body.

Rather than being a strength, though, it may be a weakness in that the “raw” mind is such a hodge-podge of contradictory stuff that unless one has deliberately undertaken to sort it all out and put all the stuff into an orderly arrangement which gives rise to critical thought, that mind is potentially mere putty in the right hands.

The body has its own “wisdom”: it will recoil from something threatening. The mind seems not to have such a fail safe built in.

I am taking the liberty of re-posting this link which @Caltrop originally posted earlier. It is of immense significance in getting closer to finding out what on earth is going on. The analysis looks at actual published WHO documents which stated in black and white in September 2019 that there should be a ‘live exercise’ by September 2020 involving a global pandemic of a respiratory pathogen, to test preparedness and reactions. It would also provide an explanation as to why Russia is ‘going along’ with it as they were one of the parties represented in drawing up the initiative. Please note also that the UK is represented on the WHO Group behind the concept and work on it by Sir Jeremy Farrar (Head of the Wellcome Foundation) who also happens to be on the Government’s SAGE Committee.

I find the evidence compelling and extremely difficult to pass off as all coincidence. We may have been used as guinea pigs and victims in a giant and deadly global experiment.

Thank you for this brilliantly researched two part article Mr Davies. Not surpisingly, as soon as you start scratching the surface of almost every sphere of life in the anglo-saxon countries (and, it’s fair to say, their vasals) you discover stagering levels of conflicts of interests and corruption. This “cancer” has metastasized at frightening speed in recent decades.

St john ambulance updated how to do CPR
We’ve updated our guidance due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Do not perform rescue breaths on the casualty.
Before you start CPR, use a towel or piece of clothing and lay it over the mouth and nose of the casualty.
Start CPR. Kneel by the casualty and put the heel of your hand on the middle of their chest. Put your other hand on top of the first. Interlock your fingers making sure they don’t touch the ribs.
Keep your arms straight and lean over the casualty. Press down hard, to a depth of about 5-6cm before releasing the pressure, allowing the chest to come back up.

  • The beat of the song “Staying Alive” can help you keep the right speed

Do not give rescue breaths.

wherever possible, the helper should keep a distance of 2m.

‘It’s just a mask’ has rapidly morphed into ‘it’s just a quarantine camp’.

In a country with 4 ‘cases’ in the last 100 days, a sniffle or maybe no sniffle at all is enough reason to be incarcerated. Or perhaps criticism of the New Zealand government counts as a sniffle too.

“Mandatory quarantine will apply to both new cases and, if necessary, close family members who might be at risk.” …with forced removal from your home if you do not comply”

Great work, Iain.

Oates is the clue to this. Most of the other board members are NATO-U.S corporate fronts.

Oates is the nexus of some companies you may have heard of: Strategic Communications Laboratories SCL, Cambridge Analytica, Auspex International, Bell Pottinger – and they work with organizations like the Behavioral Dynamics Institute of Leeds University.

In fact, SCL has been modeling mass health emergencies for well over a decade. Its work on real and fake public emergencies was revealed by Slate magazine in 2005.

The Covid Event closely follows plans disclosed 15 years ago by Strategic Communications Laboratories SCL which nominally closed down after the Cambridge Analytica scandal. This was their model for public manipulation:

“A shadowy media firm steps in to help orchestrate a sophisticated campaign of mass deception. Rather than alert the public to the smallpox threat, the company sets up a high-tech “ops center” to convince the public that an accident at a chemical plant threatens London. As the fictitious toxic cloud approaches the city, TV news outlets are provided graphic visuals charting the path of the invisible toxins. Londoners stay indoors, glued to the telly, convinced that even a short walk into the streets could be fatal.”

You Can’t Handle the Truth — Psy-ops propaganda goes mainstream, by Sharon Weinberger, Sep 2005. https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2005/09/psy-ops-propaganda-goes-mainstream.html

The techniques include manipulating people to demand the new restrictions rather than simply imposing new laws.

Now Lord, Jonny Oates, the architect of the above sits on the board of the CCDH. He was a director of Bell Pottinger, a PR firm founded by Margaret Thatcher’s favourite PR man, Tim Bell, who was instrumental in her election victories.

Bell Pottinger took its expertise abroad, selling its skills in election manipulation to the highest bidder. The same circle of people ran Cambridge Analytica and both companies were caught stocking racial tensions in South Africa, after which Bell Pottinger closed and set up with a new name, Auspex International.

Cambridge Analytica’s Mark Turnbull “told an undercover reporter in a Channel 4 documentary that “we’re not in the business of entrapment, so we wouldn’t . . . send a pretty girl out to seduce a politician”. But in the same report, he was filmed next to Alexander Nix, Cambridge Analytica’s former chief executive, saying that the company could help clients to smear opponents by offering bribes and attractive women.”

https://www.ft.com/content/d92164fe-8514-11e8-96dd-fa565ec55929

Quartz: The dark arts of international lobbyists and spin doctors are infecting Africa’s politics, by Lynsey Chutel, Sep 2017 https://qz.com/africa/1089911/bell-pottinger-and-cambridge-analyticas-work-in-south-africa-kenya-is-raising-questions/
Cambridge Analytica first came to prominence helping the Obama victory, before Analytica’s data mining of Facebook erupted in scandal in 2018.

As of March 2018, the company had four directors: Roger Michael Gabb, Alexander Nix, Nigel John Oakes and Julian David Wheatland. SCL’s key associates include Mark Broughton and the Behavioral Dynamics Institute, a virtual lab led by Professor Phil Taylor of Leeds University.

UK Government has embraced SCL-Cambridge Analytica and, for all the fake outrag, has put their techniques at the heart of state policy.

==
The takeaway from the article is how centralized, how few people it takes to sway public opinion.

Big Society Trust > Big Society Capital > Access > Connect Fund

BS Trust = the BBC, the Crown Estate, UK Government Investments (nationalized bank holdings) and HM Treasury.
BS Capital brings in the Bankers — in indication of who is in the driving seat.
Access brings in National Lottery Community Fund and Cabinet Office (which in turn controls Joint Biosecurity Centre (the UK’s Department of Homeland Security), National Security Council (equivalent of the U.S. DNI) and the three main agencies: GCHQ, Mi5, Mi6. Together they control the narrative, especially for politicians within the bubble who will take decisions based on a filtered reality.

So you have the Bankers, drawing funding from the National Lottery, working in tandem with State Security which will approve the narrative. All this sits above and influences the Center For Countering Digital Hate. As Iain puts it:

“This relationship between BCT and Access, via BST, is the epitome of how the NGO and charities shell game works. The Connect Fund doles out grants to charities who, though well meaning and staffed by honest, hard working people, are controlled at the board level by funding commitments ordained by the State and it’s corporate partners. They control the finance and the flow of information.”

Well, whats one apostrophe when you take in this content? An excellently written article which would have taken ages to put together. Credit to the author and perhaps a wake up call even to some who previously considered themselves enlightened.

I wonder, back in the old days of libel you would get named people suing if the facts were wrong or even when they were right. I bet you won’t hear a peep out of this lot.

One thing particularly I liked was the commentary which went with the facts. We need to call out criminals and evil for what it is. Just because criminals have a nice title, fancy suit or can dance stylishly doesn’t cut it for me. So, a superb article all round.

Indeed, an excellent article. But, as a matter of principle, this shouldn’t be an either-or scenario. An excellently written article can also have excellent punctuation, and it should.
I do realize that there is such a thing as “received English”, but that is slowly becoming an excuse for sloppiness and downright wrongness.
The misuse of the apostrophe began several decades ago, when schools began to adopt the similarly sloppy policy of saying that the main thing was that we should understand what a student was writing.
Now, as we even see (though rarely) in our comments here, there are some who are quite happy to write long, totally-unpunctuated paragraphs, with back-street slang, not all of which is universally understood. However, to be able to take what they say seriously, one is sometimes forced to resort to the Urban Dictionary, and this tendency is definitely getting worse with time.
I don’t really take any of this personally, but I have to wonder how the potentially great writers of the future will have a chance to shine, when their works are full of what we now know to be mistakes, but which they will find perfectly acceptable.
There are some great parodies on Shakespeare, for example, which humorously demonstrate what a catastrophe his wonderful works would have become if they had been restricted to the English most common today.
Of course the whole point is that the above is an excellent article, and certainly we all make mistakes, but nobody should be actively encouraging mistakes, especially since the correct use of the apostrophe is not normally a complicated matter, even if there are exceptions… A misused apostrophe is a flaw, especially if repeated. Typos are different.
My comment on this is far too long, so I will shut up now.

I can’t help it, it would seem. It’s out of control hatred. I am a hate filled hate monster, over-geared and revved up on pure high octane hatred of everything and everyone, all because I I don’t believe what Radio 4 tell me to believe.

Lack and self-conflicted fear activate self-protective recoil from relationship, communication and recognition of shared worth.
This is a state of disintegrity in search of narrative protection.
The masking over of self-conflict is also the masking of its self-protective agenda under narrative identity that operates as mind-capyure of mind control, as distinct from integrated heart and mind.
Thus such a use of the mind effects a mask of concern or protection to elicit sympathies and deter antipathies of challenge that would exposes a lack of substance and the underlying conflict of self-lack seeking power and protection in regaining or reinforcing ‘control’ or ‘face’ at expense of anyone and anything else. And in lockstep with others who join in reinforcement of the means to distance, separate, judge, distort, limit and deny communication feared as contagion, or truth feared as destructive – or too dangerous to truth others to know. Which is part of anything deemed too fearful or disturbing to face in themselves or indeed ourselves.
While this is a form of psycho-pathy or cognitive dissonance, the use of scientific or psychological terms as diagnostic terms easily becomes its own pejorative justification for a like reaction of assumed moral superiority.

I reflect here that I have become aware of innumerable toxic and conflicted situations in human society that are for the most part masked over and disregarded – not least as a result of diversion to what I see as cover stories. These operate in the mind of many as fear and guilt-driven narratives of manipulative intent masked in moral authority that weaponises or leverages fear in order to persist in loveless, deceitful and toxic activities that generate false profits and establish false premises as the basis of communication and exchange. So much so as to constitute a death grip, that will not release an illusion of the face of control for a real and present relationship.

As I see it, I have responsibility for my own choices – regardless the guilting or threatening assertions of others that arise from their current choices – which are not recognised as choice but run a tyrannical dictate under fear’s necessity – for lack of light in which to see and love in which to feel and know.

So to maintain my own integrity of a heart and mind as one – and as a presence of willingness FOR communication rather than a locked down mask of armoured intent, it is my responsibility to NOT react in the same pattern that I have sketched out as self-lack, self-conflict, fear and guilt seeking cover, as narrative assertions posing as and imposed on truth.

In this wise, I have to look at my own part, and accept a self-educative and reintegrative process of communication within my self or my life that automatically extends or shares to others – but for the most part unselfconsciously – as witness to who I am within what is.
Others have to be free to make their own choices, and I am free to reflect those choices as the freedom of a choice that can be changed, but I am not free to make them listen of force them to accept anything they are unready and unwilling to know.

Release and be released is as fundamental a truth as can be, but this is only available as a choice where we recognise our own grip on life as a face or mask of control, grievance, and damnation of self and other. That we direct this away from some sense of self onto the ‘othered’ is witness to love’s protection, but split into denial and attack as the premise from which we then meet, adapt and respond to our world.
A ‘special love’ of mutually reinforced ‘virtue’ set against selected ‘evils’ or hates held in common masks over the hate and fear below as a way of making such a life tolerable or bearable.

The Disclosure of the Mask is the disclosure of an alien will – taken as our own – with all the power given to a guilted and gated fear. Psychotic reactions are part of the ‘territory’ of revisiting and releasing deep fears that can be regarded as ‘Separation trauma’.
Living through what we feel and fear without choosing to reinvest and reinforce or restate denial, IS its process of release. The willingness to stay open in faith of life beyond the appearances and experience of an insanity or self-contradictory self and world, is a transformative education and rehabilitation from a dissociative defence, to a participance in felt presence that witnesses glimpses of a Sanity or Wholeness that the mind of control cannot conceive of or see, but which we can recognise and accept and freely align in.

Faith given to fear and guilting manipulations ‘knows not what it does’. The appeal of Unconsciousness or ‘death in life’ as a source of a special sense of self, is a deeply set habit or subconsciously acquired ‘choice’, running blind as a self-reinforcing loop.
But our freedom and capacity to block awareness of truth is our freedom to choose to accept it, as distinct from a determined mechanism. Imagination is creative, but a conflicted and lawless imagination locks down in its own death-mask under its own convictions.

If minding could not change, it would not Be a mind so much as a mechanism.
Can we become trapped or locked into our own thinking – running as unquestionable facts or conditions? Invested identity requires that full communication be put on hold in order to unfold the experience being asked for – to which we have given meaning and are reaping the measure of.

So that meanings can be flagged to reality that are evasions or reversals of true relation, is a witness to our human function of giving or extending meaning – but applied from false premises.The attempt to protect false or conflicted ‘meanings’ with further layers of protection only reinforces the mindset of a deep state under cover.

Whatever we accept as our self, becomes the basis of the world we perceive and respond to. The idea that collective or lockstepped mind is powerful is of a recognition that sharing is power. But keeping separate so as to join in common purpose set AGAINST fears and hates – gives all power TO them – while joining in a masquerade of a crusade against them.

A truly Common Purpose is uncovered in free relational association that reveals a true commonality of human being as shared worth, instead of a dissociative human doing of the attempt to possess and control it. We get in our own way.

Henchmen were used by the Nazis to impose tyranny.
There is a long list of those who fought and died to free the world of that tyranny.

I’ll add communist henchmen and tyrants to your list. Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and other friendly dictators ordered the killing of an estimated 120m of their own defenceless citizens during the C20th. Xi Jinpeng and Kim Jong Un continue this glorious tradition today, especially Xi with his 1.5m Muslims and Tibetans in concentration camps. Those who wear communist apparel and insignia while seeking to ‘bash the fash’ could never wear swastikas, but the hammer and sickle represents a tyranny of horror and fear worse than Hitler’s Germany. What’s more, communism remains undefeated. If you fear the swastika but not the hammer and sickle, you are brainwashed.

A really excellent article by Iain Davis! Thank you!
 
And this huge interwoven web of government and NGO institutions covers all western countries. This to ensure complete control – including total censorship and punishment – or at least advocacy for punishment – of any opposition. Also, for example, German language media (like government media and mainstream media) are exactly as totalitarian streamlined as is the English language media. There is no difference between “The Guardian” and the “Spiegel”, “Zeit”. “Welt” and the private and government TV-stations.
.
But lets take a broader look now:
I always wondered why they hate Donald Trump so much. I mean, Trump gave tax relieve to the big corporations. He did cut social contribution to the workless and poor. He continued the existing wars and even started new aggressions against Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Iran and China.
So the “globalist class” (expression from Iain Davis) should love him and support him. Instead if you look at the news every new day, every second article is either pushing the Covid-panic or … pouring out hate against Trump. Yes, “hate”, that is never censored.
 
This seems to show, for some reason that I don’t understand, that Trump isn’t accepted by the “globalist class”.
 
Now, at this moment, don’t lets brood over that question, let’s just take is as a fact.
And now (to my great surprise!) it is exactly British Intelligence, which has organised this “Russia gate” thing.
To this read this remarkable article “THE SPIES WHO HIJACKED AMERICA” https://taibbi.substack.com/p/the-spies-who-hijacked-america

Maybe you remember ‘drain the swamp’, Trump’s famous pledge to voters that he would clean up corrupt DC and US politics? I’m hoping many here are readier to take him at his word, now that globalist ambition and tyranny is so much more visible during the plandemic. Also, many people say they hate politicians and ‘the system’ with a passion, but then hate Trump the businessman and anti-politician more than they hate murdering dictators. They fail to realise that Trump was elected by the working Americans who also hate and oppose corrupt corporate politics and its stranglehold over a functioning democracy. When leftists spit at Trumpers, they attack ordinary people who are also being screwed over by the globalist elites, and who also seek power to the people. When leftists slander and fight a president who was never a politician and who is greatly feared and hated by politicians, the MSM, the corporates and professional classes, they are helping to sustain the system and dividing the opposition to it. What perfect tools.

Don’t you get it? Trump is actually part of the swamp. The US choice now is between Biden, who is a senile right-wing shill and puppet, and Trump, who is a senile right-wing lunatic. There is no (or at least very few) ‘left-wing’ in the US, not as is generally understood in the rest of the world. ‘Left-wing’ in the US means some kind of wishy-washy liberal, who wouldn’t know Carl Marx from Groucho. You people are in an infantile political state. Until you get some real leftist input this will continue to be the case.

And in any case it won’t stop the demise of the US empire – China will win.

So not one person there with a STEM degree amongst them.

All of them bullshitting Arts Graduates who joined the oily world of PR, political posturing, working for money interests and all of them totalitarian extremists who are so lacking in confidence about the validity of their beliefs that they have to lock others up if they disagree or bomb them into smithereens if they pursue an independent nation-state political path.

It is truly a crime of hate to say that a totally unqualified arts graduate knows more about the reality of scientific research, its uncertainties, propensities to misinterpret, overinterpret, the conflicts of interest which can arise, than those who worked directly in the field for a decade and more, maybe still work in the field but disagree with the concensus for excellent non-financial reasons.

The hatred is of the concept of pursuing the truth, no matter where it may lead us.

The history of science is littered with examples of a self-satisfied and smug Establishment being torn asunder by some maverick upstart who demolished their half-truths, lies and authoritarian apartheid systems using two things: experimental data and rigorous argument.

Galileo Galilei did it. Albert Einstein did it. The identifier of bacterial roles in ulcers did it. To name but three.

I refuse to submit to the dictates of an uneducated Asian fascist called Imran Ahmed.

I did spend a decade immersed in the cutting edge literature of molecular biology, cancer research and gene therapy. I did see hugely unexpected results come out about HPV presence in prepubertal children (at a time when HPV spread was deemed to be through sexual activity).

I have seen and read the two totally different presentations of climate science by the IPCC and the NIPCC. I doubt very much that Imran Ahmed has. He is unfit to speak in any way about climate science issues if he has not read every single NIPCC report cover to cover and shown that he understands at a deep enough level the issues involved in current climate controversies. If he says ‘97% of climate scientists say so, so it must be true’ he is the one who is hateful, since that statement has been proven to be utterly untruthful.

I am more than capable of understanding every angle associated with vaccinations, drugs in general. I may not know absolutely everything about every subject, but there is nothing I cannot get up to speed on given a few hours unfettered access to the relevant literature, patent filings etc etc. I remain 100% confident that Imran Ahmed cannot say likewise.

This board of self-serving shysters has no track record in scientific research nor in drug/vaccine development. Not one of them.

All they have is experience in mind control shenanigans.

Nothing else.

I wonder which bent judges they would need to appoint in a court of law to convince them that their word was superior to that of an honest research scientist at odds with current Weltanschauungs?

You have made it very obvious to everyone that you haven’t really been paying attention, to anything.
The american deep state didn’t spend billions on mind control research for no reason. Even Gordon Brown warned us of the ‘shadow gov’t’. He was of course probably trying to make amends for flogging off Britain’s gold at bargain prices in order to save banking establishments and oligarchs around the world from going bankrupt.

All these things, and more, at one time were deemed conspiracy. Today they are known as facts. To dispel ‘widespread conspiracy’ as fantasy is to put on the blinkers and be led by others.

Do you know what the UN has in store for humanity via their 2030 plans? These plans are based on the same modelling techniques used for MMGW and the COVID. Neither of which truly exist.
Nasa have been called out in recent times over altering and manipulating their data, which has been on record for decades, so it fits the new UN models. Why would nasa do that?

Unfortunately, widespread conspiracy does exist.

👨🏽Nonsense. The very biggest (bigly, even), weapon that capitalism has is propaganda. If there is one conspiracy theory I might give credence to, it’s one where the so called ‘secret services’ are spreading the idea that the ‘deep state’ or the ‘establishment’ or however you want to designate them, are organised, powerful and all-seeing – it’s the scenario that Orwell described as “Big Brother”

In reality they are no so organised – EU capitalists and billionaires may well have competing interests or different goals from US ones, etc. etc. Furthermore, they are just people – they screw up just the same as everyone else, and the more authoritarian and right-wing you are, the more rigid and likely to screw up you also are.

If US capitalism (because that is what the ‘deep state’ actually is), is so far seeing, they would actually be spending money on the US infrastructure in order to keep the population of their main fiefdom reasonably happy and quiet. Right now the US is literally crumbling, and the conditions for internal trade and even internal coercion are threatened. Instead their greed compels them to siphon off billions from the war machine game. This can only be a temporary expedient, as if the US falls apart, (and that’s the way it seems to be heading), there will be no more money going into that pot.

Similarly, the US’s insane attempt to defeat China’s rise is doomed for disappointment – a wiser course would be to reach an accommodation and share the spoils. But they are too divided and stupid and greedy to do that. Similarly they would be unable to hatch a plot like the Covid one which everyone on this site seems to swallow whole. At best they might be opportunistically exploiting it as ideas occur to them, but really, “to make the population more docile by making them wear masks” – this is the sort of idiocy over which I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry!

Jams, consumerism itself is predicated upon psychologically manipulating people into believing that they need things which they actually don’t need, in order to fit in with an invented and constantly changing lifestyle sold to them as fashion, which we are told we need to keep up with in order to fit in. What is that if it isn’t mind control? I think you under estimate the deep understanding of human psychology employed by the people at the top of the money tree in order to maintain that particular status quo. I use this as an example, but the same principle can be applied to other aspects of the money machine.

Look beyond left and right, the only division worth looking at is that between the ultra rich and the rest of us. We are all part of their money machine, ultimately. We are all one.

The panic is raising – the groan is making up lies that Russia is going to be issuing vaccines in a forthnight, in the headline of their Live article – but no link to any corresponding story.

The Tory front spivs are going to worry that their zillion quid scams are going off track faster than expected.

Even having the Oxford University Name in their dodgy monkey virus based vaccine can’t sell it.

Apparently the dual vaccine aimed at raising immunity is going to be trialled on 2,000 people across multiple countries in a proper fashion and ONLY then would be able to be rolled out generally- if safe and efficacious.

A side effect of this particular vaccine type may well see the end of BiG Pharma’s cash stream for flus and colds generally! In what may be called a strategic response by Russians.

The game ends as soon as the EU recognises and approves its use never mind the WHO.

Awaiting for approval

According to Chomsky, what we do here is wrong reasoning (talking about 9/11). I just copy pasted Chomsky’s argument and see how it fits in the covid narrative

‘What you [should] do, when you think you’ve discovered something, is write articles in scientific journals, give talks at the professional societies, go to the civil engineering department at M.I.T. or Florida or wherever you are, and present your results. And then proceed to try to convince the national academies, the professional societies of physicists and civil engineers, the departments in the major universities – and convince them that you’ve discovered something.’

Funny thing is, I tried that for Covid19 and my articles (all negative about the seriousness of the disease) are dismissed without review by that same professional society of physicians or not even that (as if the article wasn’t sent to them in the first place).

‘Now there happen to be a lot of people are around who’ve spent an hour on the internet and think they know a lot of physics – but it does not work like that, and it never has.’

Well Covid19 is not rocket science (or maybe it is when you compare it with the science behind moon landings; see David McGowan’s ‘Moondoggie’). For instance if you know that the number of deaths in NL related with flu is 9000 per year while for Covid it is currently 6000 in the year 2020, you know we are not dealing with the new plague here, but with something that is related (maybe even is) seasonal flu.

‘There are reasons why there are graduate schools in these departments.’

I come to believe that these departments are there for having a monopoly about what is ‘scientifically’ true. Becoming an epidemiologist is mainly a costly adventure since you have to pay a lot of expenses for following all kinds of courses (that you don’t need in order to see that 6000 is not more than 9000). You are also unlikely to run the gauntlet if you are not into ‘groupthink’ (or as they call it: ‘professional standards’). For instance saying that 6000 is less than 9000 is something that does not fit in the mind of the groupthink where epidemiologists think and write about Covid19 as if it is the plague for which you need all sorts of (anti) social measure in order to contain it.

‘So the thing to do is pretty straightforward: do what scientists and engineers do when they think they’ve made a discovery.’

You’ll be censored. Pretty sure something similar happened with the 9/11 engineers for truth.

Here is an example of censoring the covid narrative in the lancet: a letter that I wrote more than 2 months ago, about an article that claimed that mouth masks could protect against the Covid and of which I still haven’t received a reply. In the meantime that article is being used by politicians and experts alike that mouth madks protect against Covid19 disease. And this is just one example of how the professional society of physicians censor. I have many more…

The letter I sent to the lancet on 8 June 2020

The lancet meta-analysis (https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31142-9/fulltext) on wearing mouth masks is epidemiologically speaking flawed. First, authors compare countries where face mask wearing was more or less mandatory (like China) vs countries where it was not (like Italy) and then find a lower rate of Covid19 in China than in Italy (Figure 4). Given that there are many variables that can explain such a finding, that is clearly a case of correlation is not causation

Second, the only article mentioned in the meta-analysis that looked at if face mask wearing protects against Covid19 within one country is this one from China
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7134426/ This is about hospital personnel where some hospitals were required to wear face masks compared with those where this was not required at the start of the Covid epidemic in China. In the hospital where they wore face masks none (zero) got covid19, while in the hospital where they didn’t wear face masks n=10 got Covid19. Let’s consider that these results are unbiased and true, then the evidence of wearing face masks comes from a study where 10 people had the outcome of interest. Since the political effects that might be taken from the paper is to impose a measure to wear face masks to billions of people world-wide based, we can surely say that there is absence of evidence here.

The authors also talk a lot of bias, and that their study has no bias because they run a lot of models. However, a funnel plot analysis in the appendix (not discussed in the paper) clearly shows there is no symmetry, i.e., that there is a gap in the right side of the triangle pushing the results towards an effect that face masks protect against Covid19.

As Carl Sagan said ‘extraordinary evidence requires extraordinary evidence’. The authors have not done so and only muddied the waters in as to mouth mask wearing can protect against viral respiratory diseases, a claim that manufacturers of mouth masks do not even dare to make.

Willem, that was a good Letter to the Lancet, it made clear and strong points against an alarmist thesis. As you say there, to compare China with Italy is to compare chalk with cheese. (For instance, China has Low Deathrate with no Lockdown, Italy has Lockdown and high Deathrate; therefore, by the same reasoning, Lockdown must be the cause of Italy’s high deathrate!). Also a powerful caution against drawing conclusions for billions of people from a study of 10 people.

I am surprised the Lancet did not publish it. Another reason to be thankful for OffG.
