“There is no question that most television is a waste of time. The people connected with it realize how bad programming is and go ahead with their shows as cynically as possible. Producers are turning out programs that literally make me sick. TV seems to re-infect itself each year, using the same approach to shows and making them worse each season.”
Richard Boone (Hanford Sentinel, 1960)
“…the intelligence empire’s efforts to manufacture the truth and mold public opinion are more vast and varied than ever before. One of its foremost assets? Hollywood.”
Nicholas Schou (The Atlantic)
There is a huge amount of material on CIA involvement in Hollywood. This is not new, but it seems to have been compartmentalized by most Americans and shuttled off into the dark corners of their consciousness. Most people largely don’t want to know. And the reasons for this are complex.
But before digging into that, its not only the CIA that shapes entertainment, its nearly all institutions of government and almost all corporations and media itself. Giant media conglomerates are in a sense hardly distinguishable from the CIA and Pentagon and State Department. Which is rather close to the classic definition of fascism.
The esteemed former University of Southern California law professor Erwin Chemerinsky agrees. In OperationHollywood, Chemerinsky asserts that “the Supreme Court has said that above all, the First Amendment means that the government cannot participate in viewpoint discrimination.” It “cannot favor some speech due to its viewpoint and disfavor another because of its viewpoint.” Moreover, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his 1995 decision Rosenbergerv.The University of Virginia that the government must abstain from “regulating speech when the specific motivating ideology or the opinion or perspective of the speaker is the rationale for the restriction.”
Tricia Jenkins – The CIA in Hollywood
And yet this is what happens constantly.
…they have become very good at persuading the public that a good movie is the one that opened strongest last weekend, even if the critics hated it. The media helps them do it, by reporting on box office figures without discussing the ways that those figures are manipulated. The media are part of the gravy train anyway, because of the ad campaign revenue.”
Paul Brynes (Sydney Herald, 2014)
Now, again, the cooperation of the CIA and Pentagon is well known. Two films that won Oscars for best picture (Argo and Hurt Locker) were essentially pure CIA and Pentagon propaganda. And this to not even get into stuff like Zero Dark Thirty. But what is more pernicious is how, in turn, all public narratives have taken on the quality of a Hollywood movie. And today this is evident in the way the Covid lockdowns are being depicted.
Watch the opening episodes of any of the Dick Wolf TV franchises this new season: Chicago Med, FBI: Most Wanted, etc., and you see blatant unquestioning support for the government narrative (FBI agent advises daughter to not leave the house without her mask). This exactly meets the definition of propaganda. Dissenting views are completely absent. In Chicago Med the pandemic is depicted as if it were bubonic plague. Public discourse on the pandemic reflects TV’s treatment.
In fact dissent is usually portrayed as dangerous and unpatriotic.
The looming question is, then, why do so many people attack dissenters when they know (because the information has been around and available for thirty years) the government (and Hollywood) lie…they lie all the time. In fact they ONLY lie.
Now, recent polls suggest that half of Americans reject the idea of more lockdowns. That’s a lot of people. Yet very few of those people speak up, or post opinions on social media. And this is an interesting phenomenon. There is an enormous fear of being called ‘conspiracy theorist’ or ‘anti vaxxer’ or ‘Covid truther’ etc. There is a tacit assault on the truth itself embedded in this stigmatizing. A pathologization of the search for truth. And this seems something that has arisen out of the culture of social media.
One understands that if the law says wear a mask or be fined, then people will wear the mask. But there is no law (yet) in expressing a dissenting opinion. And this lynch mob mentality has, predictably, attracted the most virulent xenophobic and racist memes and opinions possible. Of course major social media platforms like twitter and facebook are perilously close to outright censorship now. One is labeled dangerous if one questions the narrative on the pandemic.
Simply pointing out that the fatality rate is extremely low despite all the lurid headlines is cause for censorship on facebook. Stating facts has become, quite literally, dangerous.
But there is another layer involved in the shaping of opinion. And perhaps it is better to describe this as the shaping of consciousness itself. And this is because its really not just opinion, its something both more expansive and much deeper. One aspect is the now glaring infantilizing of the public (an interesting sidebar).
And one aspect of this childishness is the aforementioned compartmentalization. Many of these people attacking dissenters well know the government lies. Ask them about WMDs or Yellow Cake in Niger, or mobile chemical weapons labs, or even the guns to Contras and US death trained death squads in Central America. They know they were lied to. And yet they desperately cling to official narrative regards Covid.
Deception can be coercive. When it succeeds, it can give power to the deceiver.”
Sissela Bok – Lying: Moral Choice in Public and Private Life
The public has little interest in the Pentagon Papers, of John Podesta’s leaked emails, or in why Gary Webb was murdered. The official narratives regarding the break-up of Yugoslavia, or the coup in Honduras, or the killing of Qadaffi — the official narratives to any of these have been debunked years ago, and yet the lies persist and continue to shape opinion.
When the U.S. helped with the fascist coup in Bolivia, the story was on the front page of most news outlets. When the socialist party was re-elected the story was seen, literally, nowhere. Most people think the coup was a popular victory for the people of Bolivia. Same with Hugo Chavez and the narrative in Venezuela. (see the debunking of liberal icon John Oliver here).
Now, two things to note here. One is that much of the pandemic suspension of rights was possible because of the Patriot Act. And two, the rabid anti-communism that runs through US history and US educational institutions has left a residue that clings with particular tenacity to the white liberal class.
The most ardent virtue signalling is found among the affluent liberals of urban America. And these are people with great visibility and are also the target demographic for advertisers.
The clumsily-titled Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (USA PATRIOT Act, or USAPA) introduced a plethora of legislative changes which significantly increased the surveillance and investigative powers of law enforcement agencies in the United States. The Act did not, however, provide for the system of checks and balances that traditionally safeguards civil liberties in the face of such legislation. Legislative proposals in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were introduced less than a week after the attacks. […] One of the most striking features of the USA PATRIOT Act is the lack of debate surrounding its introduction.”
Epic.Org, Electronic Information Privacy Center
There isn’t even the spirit any more that was in Vietnam, of skepticism, and the sense that the patriotic thing to do is to tell the American people the truth and to try to be impartial and not to be the cat’s paw of the government. But when I say this on TV the reaction is overwhelming; there is tremendous hostility to the free press in this country.”
John MacArthur (Harpers, Censorship and the War on Terrorism)
The government has simply abandoned the idea of referendum, or really, it was never considered (which Neil Clark wrote about here.)
The same hostility to free speech is found in regards to actual democracy. Now, this is not a majority opinion, I don’t think, but like the lockdown polls my guess would be about half. So who makes up this half of the US that is hostile to stuff like free speech or democratic procedures? Again, my guess is the educated white liberal class.
These are the people who exhibited an outsize hatred of Trump to the extent that anything he said was going to be opposed and this includes the pandemic. These are the people who beatified Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Who refuse any criticism of Obama, and who love FBI directors if they were against the Donald. Why?
I have no real answers except that in the age of screen culture the waves of opinion form quickly and migrate often and rarely can be rationally explained. Something in cyber culture (more acute due to the lockdowns) encourages simplistic narratives of good and evil. And in times of acute precarity there seems a default setting of ‘trust’ regarding state institutions. This also all falls under infantilism.
There are psychological aspects to this beyond just the inherent influence of screen culture. And this is a subject that does not lend itself to simplistic discourse.
We see that the object is being treated in the same way as our own ego, so that when we are in love a considerable amount of narcissistic libido overflows on the object. It is even obvious, in many forms of love choice, that the object serves as a substitute for some unattained ego ideal of our own. We love it on account of the perfections which we have striven to reach for our own ego, and which we should now like to procure in this roundabout way as a means of satisfying our narcissism.”
Sigmund Freud – Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego
Because there is no single Fuhrer figure in contemporary America, this libidinal attachment is diffused over a variety of figures. Why, for example, is Dr. Fauci so respected? Nothing in his dodgy career history explains this. Why are the countless dissenting doctors and respected researchers ignored? The only answer I have is that visibility on the screens of mass media amounts to a kind of Fuhrer stature. Like Max Headroom Fuhrers.
There is an inherent authority in the close-up, (Godard may have said that) and that is what TV and its extension to laptop and tablet screens achieves. The public is in thrall to figures of authority, even if entirely artificial. Or, rather, they are in thrall to ‘their’ screen images. The ones they identify with and feel they own. Politics is expressed much as shopping is expressed. The identification in the political sphere (and with history) is identical to how this public identifies with Hollywood’s protagonists.
Just as people do not believe deep down in their hearts that Jews are the devil, they do not fully believe in the leader. They do not really identify with him but act on this identification, represent their own enthusiasm, and thus participate in the leader’s performance. It is through this representation that they find a balance between their instinctual urges continually mobilized and the historical stage of enlightenment which they have attained and which can not be arbitrarily revoked. It is probably the distrust of the fiction of his own ‘group psychology’ that makes the fascist masses so merciless and unshakable.”
Theodor Adorno – Freudian Theory and the Pattern of Fascist Propaganda
This is an important observation of Adorno’s. The bad faith that resonates throughout the U.S. public discourse is an engine for resentment and rage. And everything has come to feel like a fiction. There is also a strange merging of several tributaries of social movements. One is the Green New Deal (and just read Cory Morningstar on this) and another is the Covid19 pandemic, and the lockdowns, and then the Klaus Schwab (and Bill Gates and friends) so-called “Great Reset”.
These are the privatised corporate movements that are passed off (on screens) as social reform. Now, the same can be said of Black Lives Matter but to a far less degree because that movement is far less unified. And Defunding the Police even more so, and this because much of that is driven by the formerly incarcerated. But the principle remains.
The Covid phenomenon, however, stands apart as the most drastic and grotesque manufacturing of crisis perhaps ever. Maybe in human history, actually. There is no crisis. The flu has similar numbers for fatalities and for infection. And now much state policy is attached to positive test results for a test nobody (even the manufacturers) really trusts. So who is driving this hysteria?
Almost nobody can argue the lockdowns will cause more death, and more suffering. Already there are acute spikes in suicide, and drug overdose, as well as domestic abuse and depression and homelessness. The answer to who constitutes the engine behind this hysteria is likely the same people, by and large, who are driving the above-mentioned attempts to rescue Capitalism.
Or rather, to control the demolition of capitalism and the transition into a new feudalism.
World systems theorists like Wallerstein and Amin had been since the destruction of the USSR chronicling an unprecedented ruling class offensive to push forward a transformation out of an obsolescent form of competitive capitalism to the next shape of class rule; popular dissident economists and social theorists like Robin Blackburn, Michael Hudson, Naomi Klein, and Robert Brenner had simultaneously been tracking the increasing precariousness of the financialized post-Bretton Woods arrangements. Indeed Klein had recently published an enormous bestseller The Shock Doctrine which, for all its many flaws, provided a neologism for ruling class praxis that vividly conveyed its premeditated malice, violence and cunning, and which was well suited to advance conversations across social strata and diverse communities about the events unfolding in 2008.
– Alponse van Worden – The Protocols of the Learned Lacanian of Ljublitzia
Van Worden’s critique is actually about Slavoj Zizek, and it is worth noting the malevolent influence of ersatz Marxists like Zizek (and Jacobin magazine and Bhaskar Sunkara, and these days even Counterpunch, sadly, and Chris Hedges, and many crypto LaRouchites, etc.) who are all now actively aligned with US Imperialist interests. And all of whom have embraced a faux green ‘woke’ subject position that is merely more mystification and obscuring of genuine class analysis.
For the real barometer for genuine opposition has become the ‘drama of the mask’. Where only recently it was the thermometer, the 1 degree or 2 degrees or whatever, that anchored most climate discourse, today there is the mask. There is ‘herd immunity’ (called mass murder by the folks at Counterpunch). There is the same guilt-tripping, the same virtue signalling, and the same bad faith.
And the bad faith is palpable, for when expressing ‘concern’ for victims of the pandemic, one can hear the echoes of the same concern many expressed for the victims of child abuse during the recovered memories trials, or of late, too, the overpopulation proponents — like Prince William and Bill Gates. They do not care about victims, they care about saving themselves — but that can only reach their conscious mind by first saving capitalism.
The current bad faith can also be linked to the collapse of the USSR. The emotional and psychic vacuum, even if largely unconscious for many, left by the fall of Soviet communism, was (and is) enormous. And out of this vacuum came the front edges of the new woke fascism.
Today, social conditions have produced uncritical acceptance of authority among large parts of the population. Among others, even those one might expect to criticise the status quo, we see only despair. The upsurge in interest in deterministic utopian or pessimistic thinking, influenced by the rapid technological change speaks volumes about the powerlessness felt even by those least susceptible to fascist propaganda.”
Max L. Feldman (Seductive Fascist Style, Verso blog)
And the style coordinates for concern invariably enclose rank sentimentalism. For as James Baldwin noted sentimentality is the ‘mask of cruelty’. This public bathos has multiplied across all areas of discussion, and it points back to just how harmful the erosion of education has been, and maybe in particular the loss of arts education.
For the American public today is both tone-deaf and stunningly deficient in aesthetic understanding. They have gone from bad taste to no taste.
Not that long ago, Hollywood was still capable of making meaningful movies.
Based on what little reliable information has been published about the CIA and Hollywood, the agency’s covert manipulation of the entertainment industry appears to have markedly decreased during the next two decades. In the 1970s, following the Watergate scandal and shocking congressional revelations about the CIA, a Hollywood backlash against the spy agency even took shape.
A series of anti-authority thrillers, including classic conspiracy films like Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation and Alan Pakula’s The Parallax View (both released in 1974) and Sydney Pollack’s Three Days of the Condor (1975), depicted the national security state as a malevolent force, with Condor, starring Robert Redford as a CIA whistle-blower, taking specific aim at the agency as an institution capable of killing anyone who gets in its way, even its own agents.
– Nicholas Schou – Spooked
The shift began in the late 70s. And it escalated profoundly in the 90s under Bill Clinton. For the Clintons saw the importance of Hollywood. A huge number of former Clinton interns are now Hollywood producers. (interesting aside, Clinton screened the 1998 Ed Zwick film The Siege in the White House — a story of terrorists attacking NYC leading to martial law).
Today, however, there are fewer people actually going to the cinema. People watch at home, on laptops and stream from a myriad of platforms. This is the Netflix era. Something else has changed, too. Hollywood has actually stopped being a source of entertainment. I mean it “is” still that, but it is more a sort of religious domain and something like a companion. This is an atomized and lonely society.
Electronic devices are left on in many homes 24/7. It is the background white noise of daily life. There are TVs in most restaurants now. There are TVs in doctor’s offices and in all manner of waiting rooms. I saw wide screen monitors at the unemployment office. I saw them at the DMV. Life is chronicled on screens, and I suspect Jonathan Beller is right that our unconscious is now a film strip.
The new woke fascism is, however, much like all fascist movements. I sense too much is made of the technological revolution (sic). Even critics of the fourth industrial revolution are besotted by AI and the fantasies of mass surveillance and facial recognition and the like. The truth is of course, it doesn’t really have to work, people only have to believe it does. But technology is now a form of mystification.
The woke fascism is, like earlier forms, attached to ideas of not just obedience, but duty to obey. And in this sense Americans have always been prime targets for fascism. They see life as a struggle and a conquest. Today the duty to the state is camouflaged to a degree, the state has as a stand-in varieties of environmental constructs (Gaia, etc). The overpopulation eugenicists constantly reiterate their love of nature, of the “planet”. But this is a planet for ‘them’, not for you. And the fascist system is always, to a large extent, petit-bourgeois.
So, into this Hollywood has increasingly created stories of technological heroism, and of duty to the authority of those who create and operate that technology. And to valorize the white middle class (Spielberg is the avatar for suburban heroic) As I have written before, Terminator 2 was the story of androids as better parents than humans.
What I am trying to point out is that the CIA is trying to circulate whitewashed images of itself through popular media. Further, it is trying to weave those images into the fabric of society in such a way that viewers see them as a “natural” reflection of the Agency, rather than one that is partially constructed and manipulated by the government.”
Tricia Jenkins (ibid)
And it is Trump who is, maybe, the ultimate expression of this decline into ‘no taste’. Trump can’t be understood. He speaks in gibberish. Biden is only very slightly better in terms of speaking English. His clear early-stage dementia is maybe the perfect soundtrack for the Covid experiment. And yet, the petit-bourgeoisie applaud him (and Kamala Harris) as if an exorcism has been completed and the Virgin Spring is born.
And lest anyone have doubts about the underlying agenda(s) of the Covid lockdowns, and in particular Bill Gates…read Jacob Levich Here are just a few of Gates’ suggestions (found in his op-ed in the NY Times, and one in the New England Journal of Medicine) which I take from the Levich article:
Work closely with Western military forces, specifically NATO, in operations targeting the developing world. [Planning] should include military alliances such as NATO…in a severe epidemic, the military forces of many or all middle- and high-income countries might have to work together.”
Suspend constitutional guarantees in sovereign nations affected by epidemics. (“Because democratic countries try to avoid abridging individuals’ rights to travel and free assembly, they might be too slow to restrict activities that help spread disease.”)”
Create worldwide surveillance networks, presumably free of privacy protections, that would make information about people in developing countries instantly available to the imperial core. (“Access to satellite photography and cell-phone data” would permit tracking “the movement of populations and individuals in the affected region.”)”
The drama of the mask is one of transitioning into full tilt fascism. And instead of black shirts, we have black (and blue and rainbow) masks. But there are already police in most European countries, and in the U.S. (in places) enforcing lockdown restrictions and punishing those who literally and figuratively refuse the mask. Businesses are aligned with their new duty to the state. To the system. Those businesses that are still open, that is.
Homelessness is reaching proportions never even dreamed of even by dystopian Sci Fi writers. And with this is coming a new criminalizing of poverty. The poor were always resented in America, but now those who do the resenting are feeling emboldened by a new religious fervor. And the empire of screens is there to validate that fervor. A patriotic fevror for some, a new woke ‘concern’ for others.
Put on the mask because you CARE about people. And nothing is too severe for those who refuse. There is an overwhelming self righteousness in American society today. The next stage will be mandatory vaccination. And with that we will have arrived at an existence of pure symbolism, disconnected from reality.
It is fascist Kabuki, a political drama of stylized symbolic gestures and mime, all performed behind a mask.

This explains why my daughter is so angry with me. I couldn’t understand why, I said I know we have different views but I don’t impose mine on you…
Just being in the wrong camp seems to be enough. I’m not on social media – I get it now.
I think I’ll be begging for the induced coma if I have to go into hospital, the TVs are on everywhere, plus every bed has one. My wife was ill in hospital a lot last year and I bought some -30dB industrial ear defenders. It’s not the noise, it’s the way it prevents you thinking your own thoughts.
I don’t agree with John’s overly, unhelpful definition of fascism.
John quotes Electronic Information Privacy Center, where Craig Newmark sits on the Board. Craig (Craig’s List) is a pretty evil guy. James Bamford is also on that Board. I like James’s book “The Shadow Factory,” but if he keeps company with people like Craig Newmark…
Failure to disclose conflicts of interest – COVID-19 vaccine deployment report – Royal Society and British Academy
Elizabeth Hart <[email protected]>
For the attention of:Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society Dr Venki Ramakrishnan, previous President of the Royal Society 2015-2020Sir David Cannadine, President of the British Academy
Dear Sir Adrian, Dr Ramakrishnan and Sir David
Serious conflicts of interest were not disclosed when the COVID-19 vaccine deployment: Behaviour, ethics,misinformation and policy strategies report was promoted in November 2020.
This Royal Society and British Academy sponsored report supports the deployment of fast-tracked and still experimental ‘COVID-19’ vaccine products, and calls for dissent about these vaccine products to be suppressed, even calling for criminal prosecutions for ‘spreading misinformation’. But who defines what is ‘misinformation’?
The COVID-19 vaccine deployment report calls for oppressive action against people questioning COVID-19 vaccination policy, but fails to disclose that both the Royal Society and British Academy are seriously conflicted in this matter via their funding.
The Royal Society receives funding from Astra Zeneca, the manufacturer of the Oxford vaccine, and also from Glaxo Smith Kline, another vaccine manufacturer involved with COVID-19 vaccine products.
The British Academy receives funding from the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) , which is responsible for the Vaccine Task Force (VTF) which was “set up to drive forward the development and production of a coronavirus vaccine as quickly as possible, bringing together government,academia and industry”.
Sir Adrian, Dr Ramakrishnan and Sir David, these conflicts of interest should have been clearly disclosed on theCOVID-19 vaccine deployment report, and acknowledged in media promotion for the report

People are not even aware of what it is that makes them shun the truth and those who speak it, but you can see their faces cloud over when it confronts them…
Nietzsche summed up beautifully what it is that they refuse to be shaken out of as:
‘Ein erbärmliches Behagen’ (wretched comfort / smug content).
It’s asking a lot to teach everybody some Nietzsche at school, but we could do a lot worse – and we do do a lot worse…
New Yorker mocking people who have been sheltering in place.
At the start of this, people panic-buying toilet rolls were ridiculed in the media and this magazine played its part in encouraging lockdown and vilifying dissenters. But now it is ridiculing people who gave in to the psyops.
Yeah, il be short this time, and I have to underline something, witch I know would provoce others, but one thing must be crystal clear, I know what they do, read about them for years, the Psy-ops to Movies, by the way, Starship trooper is an briliant one, but the never ending debate about left or right contra facism and communism/socialism is for me an dead end street, and what is then facism, is Bolivia facistic, when the want to nationalise their resources and create something that benefits the people of Bolivia, per-def that is facism because it merges the state and corps.
Or is Public banking facism or is it communism, where both strive to have control over the main instruments that makes an state viable and prosperous.
We can go on, and is Health Care, witch should be universial, socialism or communism or capitalism or facism, you see, you can drown everything into hagling about consensusses and narratives witch thru the years have been raped to oblivion, distorted to such an extent that are virtually wurthless and we always ends up in an idiotic debate abpout history witch is be large an echo of distant propaganda and consensusses, over and over again.
The truth is, most of our debates are by large overflodded with bullshit, and Americans, two things that makes a lot of fog and destroys what should have been an more pinpoint focus on whats the problem, and I dont attack, usually not, others, sites yes, but only because I want to place an focus on how distorted they are, and to an extent just controlled oppostiton, and by that I mean in what direction are they going and stearing the debate and their articles like the idiotic Info W. where they claim the Chines are crawling under any American house, and all the Darn things AmeriTard officials and “celebritsy” say, like Stone about North K.
I dont riddicoul children, but against adults, I have no mercy.
Then we have another problem, a lot of the dis-info and so on, goes on deliberatly distorting truths, dragging in things witch maybe or may not be essential, like they forget that the same force, like the Bankers etc to the large multinational ind. complexes, was dominating the world or by large incl the western economy, to day, as they did centurys age, a lot of this corps have changed names, reshuffled, some gone, but by large they stil exist, and they run the show we call the western economies and to an large extent the world, like IMF (international Mo fo) to BIS, etc, Goldmean Sucks, City of London to Amsterdam and so on, the list is remarkable since it is echoing the same partisipants whom is behind what we expirience to day, from wars to the great reset.
When thats said, that dont mean if any Gov an century age cooperated with standard oil or the world banks back then was their pupets, like to day, when some nations bow to their pressure and lets them run their respective nations economy and whatever else incl social systems, Libya is an ex. on what happened, and by whom, for what reasons.
When I have told you this I will link you something I am not shure it will go thru, OffG have limits, but to understand certain historical issues you need to know more, not indulg in propaganda and claim, that this are facts, but when it comes to other things the same people whines about propaganda, like the present Corona swindle.
The sole reason for WW1 was the same as the reason for WW2,(have Libya in mind).
All wars are bankers wars.
A. Hitler and the Bankers.
Do you really know the difference. In order to understand the present, you need to know the past.
Have an nice day and take care.
From 2005, Bolivia made tremendous progress for its people, independently. No comment from the thugs at the UN agencies. In 2019, with the help of a subverted military, imperial thugs overthrew the popular government. Again, no comment from the thugs at the UN agencies.
Despite being quite the volume on The Machine’s Hollywood agency, one important question is never asked.
‘Why are people so susceptible to this kind of manipulation? Why are people following orders that do not ring true? What is to gain from obedience?’
Actually three questions with one mutual answer. It is much more than the often cited Gorilla sitting on the small kitchen table.
Other than that, everybody is closer to death now than ever before. A Death that is feared above and beyond by people that are already disenfrenchised and destitute. Here, too the Hollywood scripts dig deep to trigger the deepest fears uninformed people carry around. The protagonists/heroes/ines are viewed as characters from the neighborhood. Wrecked cars and clothing are changed from one scene to the next. Injuries heal themselves from one scene to the next. Adversities are removed from one scene to the next.
The next scenes in real life will not provide for new transportation, designer clothes and instant healing for the next scene.
Maybe some remember what I wrote before I ‘disappeared’?
“People lack imagination in regard to what the consequences of this ‘pandemic’ will entail.”
Last but not least, “What is Fascism in its reality, and where does the support for it originate?” At the core, that is. In its ultimate essence. What is it reminiscent of?
And of course, the same people that proclaim that there is an ‘overpopulation problem’ – are the same people that want you to be healthy? Why would these people want 8 billion healthy people – IF overpopulation is indeed a problem?
P.s.: The new format appears to be a huge progress over the the former one. Congratulations for that.
As bad as the BBC and SKY is try watching CNN
Yesterday they were going on about the most Americans people dying in a single day in American History. I rather suspect a lot more died in a single day in many of the battles of the Civil War and on many other occasions. But watch CNN for a while and you will be convinced that we are all going to die from this Pandemic that is worse than the Black Death.
Why should most people question this story. What life experiences do they have that would make them doubt what they are told 24/7.
It is only chance circumstance that I am not as believing of the News.

A short reminder about our dear leader and his rich friends
A good theme to start with as a strong opening – gets pretty much ignored for the rest of the piece – finishing weakly.
Quite a kaleidoscope in the meat of the article, which goes completely off track to try and shoe horn mask wearing as the main plan of the CIA ‘run’ Hollywood!
If anything it is the other way around.
The Media Entertainment Complex is as much ‘run’ by the CIA as the MIC.
It is the CIA which is ‘owned’ by the same powers that own both these Complexes as they own most other Western Industries.
Ultimately it is the Money that holds all the cards. Not mentioned much in most such narratives.
On Masks – suggesting that facial recognition/ AI to control people is a fascistic plan of the Power while at the same time suggesting that wearing masks/face coverings is what the Power wants government to do – is absurdly inconsistent.
There is an almighty effort at stuffing that square peg into a round hole around that fallacy.
Why does the Power want to mask the populace it wishes to watch and control as it does its storm troopers and its praetorians such as the CIA and any number of agencies – overt or covert?
Any simple logical explanation for that self contradictory logic?
So let me see if I can suggest a hardier bookend for the article.
Television is poison. Like Opium.
An old lesson.
Like patriotism and religion. Mediums are poison.
All owned like always by the great warmongering robber barons who have always been the slave owners, who have slave masters – the various Complexes and CIA’s and ‘Fund’ Mangers.
I haven’t watched TeeVee for a few years – it took many months for tho fog to clear. Giving up radio news was quicker – just 6 weeks or so.
Movies I had given up on years ago.
Any poster with a gun on it were the first to go.
It was the advent of Superman which was the cornerstone of the wholesale takeover of that medium for preparation of the future cultural mindset. It upgraded the propaganda narratives from the John Wayne type action hero saving the world as the American saviour.
This gave birth to the Exceptionalism and Super Powers of the ‘Hero’ franchises and the Transformer series.
They kept some soft stuff coming – the India Jones ‘human’ heroics (although with superhuman survivability whilst keeping God/Yahweh in the picture! Yeah got Spielberg /Lucas sussed long time ago.
The genres all allude to the similar themes from Terminators ultra deadly technological supremacy (sky net was American wasn’t it, the cyborgs are therefore All American!)
Even Tarantino and his Mercenary Rats – who are worshipped , the Gangsters who are loved of Coppola and co – the anti hero Heroes – All American to a tee. Yes including DeNiro /Pacino the whole bunch of them.
The U.K. still allowed to contribute the never ending 0077 licences to kill and fuck anywhere and whoever. Even Pixar and the upgrade of Disney. They even had to bring the Female audience along – cat woman, Jolie, Thurman all the way to WonderWoman played by a Israeli Army Model turned Actor – didn’t we get to hear that story as much as the characters!
All BS. I’m sure you will all agree 🤔😆
On TeeVee – the endless procedurals and high tech NCxx – a whole never ending stream of such shows ( costing countless millions ) constantly barging down every channel that is created to occupy the eyeballs at all times. Even including the cartoons and endless Sci-fi ( mostly guys) and Occult (mostly female) heroics – with exactly the same themes that good old Marion with his all American invented personae used to sell ( and I’m not forgetting the brat packs old and new)
That is the simple theme, I think the article should have articulated.
It is so obvious to the common man that oggi/today this day and age is the era of fascismo purro. I was having a political philosophical chin wag with a solicitor the other day. I was so shocked to c the extent of her ignorance. I explained the definition of fascismo. (The fusion of Corporations and State. Also referenced the one and only the father and founder of modern day industiral fascism Benito Mussolinni when he introduced the phrase in 1919. LO STATO CORPORATO the Corporate State. Totally disagreed and brushed of any of my arguments as a conspiracy theory. Facts and actual economic statistics just flew over her head.
The simple fact that a working class slob in 1975 yearly salary was half the value of mortar and brick /roof over their head. The simple fact that since 1969 real wages have been decreasing as compared to asset inflation and real GDP inflation. The fact that the largest extraction of wealth haS OCCURED SINCE 1979 WHEN THE WEST WENT INTO HYPER DRIVE IN FINANCIALIZING THEIR ECONOMIES. Further more how we in the west have monetized debt like the Wiemar republic post WW1. The deliberate war on class by the 0.01 percent has been so overt and telling just in the last decade. But no we do not live in a fascist society . The obvious brain washing and idiocracy they we live in is proof in the pudding.
The deliberate defunding of the commons such as Health education and communications.
Hell no we livbe in an IDIOCRACY>
Dumb down ignorance is bliss better wear ur mask and social distance now cause a virus that has a 99 percent recovery rate might get you.
“Legislative proposals in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were introduced less than a week after the attacks. […] One of the most striking features of the USA PATRIOT Act is the lack of debate surrounding its introduction.”
Exactly the same in this country with the Coronavirus Act (2020). strongly criticised by former Supreme Court judge Jonathan Sumption for being steamrolled through just as the parliamentary spring recess was about to start and enacted shortly afterwards, allowing no time for proper debate. The act allows government to make policy on the hoof. allows government to remove children from their parents’ care for non-compliance with the childish rules government itself sets – whatever these rules might be. When the Coronavirus Act (2020) marched into the statute book freedom marched out of the country.
I’m not in total agreement with the article in that my own theory for a dearth of good movies, as well as everybody being glued to electronic media, is that the scripts are often not scripts at all, but plans, which is why so many writers falsely appear to be prophets.
the scripts are often not scripts at all, but plans
As far as the remaining memories serve, it is called ‘Predictive Programming’. Hollywood is second to none in the implementation of programming future events into their ‘offerings’. The population is programmed to accept a future event – by having ‘experienced’ it ‘before’. Has anybody ever investigated how many psychologists are employed to make sure the propaganda/projection hits hook, line and sinker?
In his 1978 Hollywood movie, Arnon Milchan depicted an airliner crashing into a skyscraper. – Christopher Bollyn, bollyn.com
At least 4 movies featured scenes of likely predictive programming about “9/11”. – Stephanie Sledge, veteranstoday.com, 2019
On 2001-03-04, Fox TV broadcast the 1st episode of the series Lone Gunmen. The plot was about Deep State hackers hijacking a plane remotely to crash into one of the WTC Twin Towers, thus blaming Islamic hijackers and triggering a world war under the pretext of fighting terrorism. – Laurent Guyenot, JFK-9/11, 2014
Welcome back👍 I hope your week has been going okay, and things are a bit more saner in Uruguay, than places like Australia and the UK.
My weeks are nowadays filled with head shaking. My two Feline Gentlecats passed away in short succession. Difficult to cope with.
Uruguay deserves a medal for obedience. Never before have I encountered such ‘official story’ addicts as in this place. The opposite of Pahoa on Hawai’i Island. Nobody would ever believe any official story there. I found that out when the cell phone alert for “Incoming Ballistic Missiles” went off. “Not A Drill!” Of course it is not that there are not great people living here. But the masses are extremely gullible and obedient. They also belueve it to be their duty and fun to get fully recorded biometrically. “Get Your Biometrics Pass Today!”
“Where do you get your news from?”
“From the News, of course.”
Of course. But the upside is that nobody cares about anybody else. Which means that it is possible to lead a life off the radar.
It feels good to read intelligent comments again. But I have extricated myself from publishing any longer. It has become an utter nightmare to hold dissenting views about anything. Julian Assange is my Canary in the Publishing Mine. That he is still illegally detained is an indicator of where all this is going.
It has become much harder to have a great weekend. Irrespective of that, I wish You one of those great weekends. We need all we can get…
It’s nice to hear from you again, and I’m sorry for the loss of your feline companions. Animals = unconditional love, and they don’t stab you in the back either.
Some days I really struggle mentally with the surrealness of what is taking place. Are we all locked inside an episode of The Twilight Zone?
The real positive is being back selling the mag, and importantly, meeting covid sceptics – dissidents almost every day. It helps mentally talking face to face with people who are also awake and see what is happening.
But the large majority here in Australia are fully brainwashed and compliant with the ‘health directives’. Some of my customers have made it clear they wanted the vaccine yesterday. Its sad.
Just trying to get thru each week without going completely gah gah.
I have a pretty good idea what will happen after the vaccines have been rolled out, and the, shall we say, ‘incentives’ used to get people to get jabbed. Good luck✌️🙏
Thank You! Sure, there never were any guarantees for a peaceful life. But the obvious split between the red pillers and the blue pillers has become intense to stomach.
Yesterday I was walking to a pharmacy downtown. On the way I encountered an obese couple with masks coming my way. You should have seen the hate in their eyes – as they changed the side of the road, because I am not wearing a Tapa Loca. That’s what I call it. Because anybody wearing those without the explicit obligation to wear it (supermarket/remaining stores) has lost any form of critical thinking.
But again and again – it is the worst where there are churches at every other corner – promising jezzas to return any moment now.
Better wear your mask! Jesus might be heading your way!
Is that even coincidental, that obedience is highest among church goers?
I have relatives in Melbourne, but we have not heard from them in years.
May all peaceful people prevail.
“the obedience is highest among church goers”…. and from my observations here in Melbourne, the most compliant are the Yuppie and Hipster brigades. Even ones with green hair and nose rings. Go figure! Cheers N✌️
Its probably been going on for ever. The original production of “Animal Farm” in the 1950s was made in the UK using backdoor financing from the CIA. (Its generally thought that the production team didn’t know at the time where the financing came from, it was well hidden.)
Once again I’d recommend reading “A Man Called Intrepid”. This biography will give you some significant detail about psyops in the WW2 era. Extrapolating forward, adding in the usual corrections for cloying bureaucracy, organizational incompetence and so on will explain a lot about the world we live in today.
They had to give it a positive ending in the film, with the animals starting to rebel against the pigs. No such ending is present in the book.
One criticism made of the book, perhaps by T.S. Eliot in a letter to Orwell (I forget exactly who and it might have been someone else) is that the pigs taking over was fore-ordained as they are typically the smartest animals in the farmyard.Orwell’s vision was hence a little pessimistic.
“I think my own dissatisfaction with this apologue is that the effect is simply one of negation. It ought to excite some sympathy with what the author wants, as well as sympathy with his objections to something: and the positive point of view, which I take to be generally Trotskyite, is not convincing,” wrote Eliot to Orwell. “And after all, your pigs are far more intelligent than the other animals, and therefore the best qualified to run the farm – in fact, there couldn’t have been an Animal Farm at all without them: so that what was needed (someone might argue), was not more communism but more public-spirited pigs.”

Those by secret ballot elected by the fooled “majority” call themselves representatives but cannot name their principals. The process is called “democracy”. In a democracy Christian wisdom counts for nothing and majorities for everything.
“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false” CIA Director William Casey Feb 1981
Excerpts from Adolph Hitlers’ book “Mein Kampf” pages 138 and 139
“……….If we consider the attitude of various Governments towards a whole series of really pernicious phenomena in public life, we shall at once recognise the fearful significance of this policy of half-measures and the lack of courage to take responsibilities. I shall single out only a few from the large numbers of instances known to me.
In journalistic circles it is a pleasing custom to speak of the Press as a ‘Great Power’ within the State. As a matter of fact its importance is immense. One cannot easily overestimate it, for the Press continues the work of education even in adult life. Generally, readers of the press can be classified into three groups:
First, those who believe everything they read;
Second, those who no longer believe anything;
Third, those who critically examine what they read and form from their judgements accordingly.
Numerically, the first group is by far the strongest, being composed of the broad masses of the people………………….
………………………………………………The third group is easily the smallest, being composed of real intellectuals whom natural aptitude and education have taught to think for themselves and who in all things try to form their own judgements, while at the same time carefully sifting what they read. They will not read any newspaper without using their own intelligence to collaborate with that of the writer and naturally this does not set the writer an easy task. journalists appreciate this type of reader only with a certain amount of reservation.
Hence the trash that newspapers are capable of serving up is of little danger —— much less of importance——-to the third group of readers. In the majority of cases these readers have learnt to regard every journalist as fundamentally a rogue who sometimes speaks the truth. Most unfortunately the value of these readers lies in their intelligence and not in their numerical strength, an unhappy state of affairs in a period where wisdom counts for nothing and majorities for everything. Nowadays when the voting papers of the masses are the deciding factor; the decision lies in the hands of the numerically strongest group; that is to say the first group, the crowd of simpletons and the credulous…………………………
………………………………Particular attention should be paid to the Press; for its influence on these people is by far the strongest and most penetrating of all; since its affect is not transitory but continual. Its immense significance lies in the uniform and persistent repetition of its teaching. Here if anywhere, the State should never forget that all means should converge to the same end. It must not be led astray by the will-o’-the-wisp of so called ‘freedom of the Press’, or is talked into neglecting its duty, and withholding from the nation that which is good and does good. With ruthless determination the State must keep control of this instrument of popular education and place it at the service of the State and the nation………………………….
………………………..Was it not the German Press that understood how to make all the nonsensical talk obout ‘Western democracy’ palatable to our people, until an exuberant public was eventually prepared to entrust its future to the League of Nations? Was not this Press instrumental in bringing a state of moral degredation among our people? Were not morals and public decency made to look ridiculous and classed out of date and banal,until finally our people also became modernised?……………………………..
…………………………………The function of the so called liberal Press was to dig the grave for the German people and Reich. No mention need be made of the lying Marxist Press. To them the spreading of falsehood is as much a vital necessity as the mouse is to a cat. Their task is to break the national backbone of the people, thus preparing the nation to become the slaves of international finance and its masters, the Jews……………………
…………………………………….And what measures did the State take to counteract this wholesale poisoning of the public mind? None, absolutely nothing at all. By this policy it was hoped to win the favour of this pest—–by means of flattery, by a recognition of the ‘value’ of the Press, its importance, its ‘educative mission’ and similar nonsense. The Jews acknowledged all this with a knowing smile and returned thanks.”
From page 132, “……….Of course it would be out of the question to enter into an arguement with these liars who deny at one moment what they said the moment before. I should waste no further words on them were it not for the fact that there are many thoughtless people who repeat all this in parrot fashion, without necessarily being inspired by any evil motives. But the observations I am making here are also meant for our fighting followers, seeing that nowadays ones spoken words are often forgotten and twisted in their meaning..”
This is no longer the dominant scenario. Voting counts for little. The role of all financed info/entertainment media is to distract, isolate, overwhelm and numb. The average victim of poor education is grateful for the morsels of pre-digested opinion (even on what he is to consume) that the virtual cognoscenti send him through the filters of the dominant channels. Thus, he can evade or conceal the fact that so many things in his life are unjust or senseless.
Hitler’s contempt for the great majority of people comes through. He thought then and later that only a minority should be allowed to join the NSDAP as it should require courage and intelligence to be a Nazi and the vast majority were not capable of it.
In the Third Reich however, there were countervailing pressures to make the NSDAP as large as possible, and it is quite clear that many joined for various advantages or because it was virtually compulsory for cerain jobs,say, in the civil service.
Interesting exchange at Rappaport’s; some valuable micro-whistle-blowing, it seems to me. Info from technicians is valuable:

But what are people with Xrays of Interstitial pneumonia actually getting if not Covid? I mean I work in health care people are really dying, many do not believe it is covid but dying none the less.
December 2, 2020 at 2:40 pm
I also work in healthcare and have been observing how the radiologists are participating in the scam when reading chest x-rays and CTs.
As most physicians, I consider them among the “bullshitter” rather than the outright liars like the CDC, Fauci, etc.
They say noncommittal remarks such as “atypical or viral pneumonia COULD have this appearance” or “patchy infiltrate which MAY be related to Covid-19 pneumonitis,” or “groundglass opacities are present bilaterally; Covid-19 CAN have this appearance” and other such non-falsifiable claims.
Obviously Covid’s radiological appearance has been improvised, and subsumed under the larger umbrella of many other pneumonia-type pulmonary infectious processes.
The radiologists want to help. They want their remarks to contribute to research about this new virus. They want to apply their new knowledge from their larger networks about the radiographic appearance of the pandemic. They are bullshitters, not liars.
December 2, 2020 at 10:48 pm
The people in the radiology ( radiologists , technicians and the ones calibrating and preparing the scanner) are participating in the deadly scam not when “reading CT scans” as you say but when performing it. First non-contrast, then double-contrast ( if you know it, if not I can explain) then repeating the double -contrast ( under pretense that they didn’t find the right arteries). The total dose is masked by the way GE scanner displays the so-called “dose-report” which presents only a fraction of the real dose. All of this creates HUGE INFLAMMATION at both lungs ( after 2-3 days) , and increased difficulty of breathing .Which in turn serves as pretext for intubation and death occurs after – due to “covid” , of course.:))
This technique was used for long time but only on selected, targeted individuals ( old, homeless , poor, immigrants) in order to get live bodies for pre-clinical studies ( which are supposed to be done only on animals) . There is a certain lenght of time between inflicting lethal dose and death, sufficient to carry the criminal experiments.
And so , my dear Jord , they are not bullshitters nor liers , as you say — they are murderers !
The entire “radiology investigation” of the covid-ghost is a macabre , deadly operation .It will not be possible without the falsification of the real dose through the so called “dose-report” issued by the GE scanner.
The victims which are labeled “covid” display in fact what is called “SARP” ( severe acute radiation poisoning) . I talk about ionizing radiation, of course.
If you work in the health care , ask your friends in the radiology ( technicians , medical physicist) .They will not acknowledge, but watch their physiognomy …Or better don’t , you gonna get only enemies .
It reminds me of children of actor Nicolas Cage several years ago who were exposed to, if I remember correctly 10-20 times of normal dose of CT scan radiation for children because as they said CT scanner wrongly measured exposure. I remember that news stated their children lives might have been in danger.
Also anesthesiologists who induce medical coma in order to intubate patient used a cocktail of drugs including fentanyl that may easily kill elderly with chronic diseases or preexisting conditions.
COVID protocol is a murder.
Uk each time you go to dentist they want you to have a xray to see if you have any issues they (the dentist) cant see with a visual inspection.!
it’s a 2 part mega con
it costs money for that xray and it fudges you up later on
This is an obvious fact that (as in a terrifying episode of The Twilight Zone) only a few of us seem to have noticed.
Technicians often redo X-rays due to blunders. How much than 1 X-ray dose is that from a CT-scan or mammogram? Hundreds? Thousands? What about those having to repeat the test every few months?
This guy (pseudonymously “Erwin Saunders”) is an FX pro who made a cute little channel about “pixies”. I’ve looked through 6 or 7 of the videos and read the comments and the overwhelming majority of the commenters seem to think this is… real. Affording us a disturbing insight into… current conditions.
I think….that if those believing viewers imagine the pixies to be at least bordering another dimension, then we should be ok, as not of this world, would be, outside of it’s influence ?

With 90% caught and strapped-in to the media streaming moth light, how are we ever going to defeat the dark forces in play.

“Van Worden’s critique is actually about Slavoj Zizek, and it is worth noting the malevolent influence of ersatz Marxists like Zizek (and Jacobin magazine and Bhaskar Sunkara, and these days even Counterpunch, sadly, and Chris Hedges, and many crypto LaRouchites, etc.) who are all now actively aligned with US Imperialist interests. And all of whom have embraced a faux green ‘woke’ subject position that is merely more mystification and obscuring of genuine class analysis.” Yes, a really bad, objectively pro-power structure stances on their part, but “Marxist”? Jacobin is totally social democratic, a politics which cannot be called “Marxist” with a straight face, given how totally opposite to Marx’s notions the political practice of social democrats has been since the late 19th Century. And Hedges is explicitly anti-Marx.

There is a reason it’s called Tel- a-Vision Programming. It’s clearly stated in the name making it an indisputable fact.
Why do so many attack dissenters? Because it’s easy and they are lazy.
It’s also the tyranny of the majority.. An intolerance for those that are different.
The majority adhere to the Covid Cult-the majority are inculcated- therefore the majority ostracize those that do not adhere to their belief and control system
It seems we’ve hit the inadequate security among the minions wall and now we are witnessing the excessive tyranny

The Hollywoodisation of America is just a function of the US psyche.
That is all you need to know.
Americans are just a nation of Walter Mittys.
It’s not a question of outright lying, or exaggerating, or ignoring inconvenient facts.
They just believe that objective reality is simply a product of their wishes and desires. Whatever they would prefer to have happened actually did happen.
Trumpo The Magnificent and Karl Rove are examples of this par excellence, but they just reflect the national character.
Examples of this are legion.
One case in point is the story of Private Jessica Lynch.
She was a soldier injured and captured in the invasion of Iraq, travelling in a small convoy of lorries that was attacked by a group of Iraqis. The lorry in which she was travelling overturned, and her leg was broken. To their credit, the Iraqis just took her to a local Iraqi civilian hospital, where she was well treated. As the Americans advanced, a doctor from the hospital contacted them and asked them to come and collect her at their convenience.
Instead, they put out the story that Lynch had fought a running battle with hundreds of Iraqis, killing vast numbers of them, until finally she ran out of ammunition and was captured and tortured.
Instead of just collecting her from the hospital, as requested, the Americans mounted a huge operation with air support and helicopter gunships, tank support and machine gunners dashing from cover to cover -with everything captured by full TV camera crews – until they eventually “rescued” Lynch from bemused Iraqi doctors and nurses.
This is just one of countless examples.
This is just typical behaviour for Americans.
They have a very tenuous grip on reality at the best of times, if ever. ..
Oh thank God – someone on the Left who is still on the Left. As opposed to the idiot massed banks of covid hacks.
I had long known the careful sowing of conspiracy phobia whereby the very notion of conscious planning on behalf of the Western elites is rejected out of hand. But I had not realised the equally devastating attack on truth seeking. And it is true enough. To even say you are searching for the truth is to risk being held up for ridicule, to be instantly associated with UFOs, lizards, and, most importantly “Right wing” quackery. This is another offshoot of the poison of postmodernism.
The slump in intelligence re: Hollywood movies is also quite clear. I’d seen it before but it can never be emphasised too much. Three Days of the Condor is one of the greatest political movies. Where is its like now?
And how ironic that we have mention of “a faux green ‘woke’ subject position” amongst other issues that the WSW would have picked up on but listed alongside the very bullshit manoeuvres they deal in themselves e.g. that “drama of the mask” and “‘herd immunity’ (called mass murder by the folks at Counterpunch)” (also the folks at the WSW). The WSW, like almost the entire visible Left, must now be considered part of that “malevolent influence of ersatz Marxists like Zizek (and Jacobin magazine and Bhaskar Sunkara, and these days even Counterpunch, sadly, and Chris Hedges, and many crypto LaRouchites, etc.) who are all now actively aligned with US Imperialist interests.”
And if “major social media platforms like twitter and facebook are perilously close to outright censorship now”, that’s only to bring them in line with TV – which is now, after the unprecedented example of a free media on the net, revealed as a completely closed echo chamber. And the psychotic monotony of TV is also made more evident by the complete absence of any critique of the covid narrative.
We need more like John Steppling, more who will step outside the phony Left paradigm that has been carefully constructed as a false dissent acting now as mainstream policy.
Three Days of the Condor is one of the greatest political movies. Where is its like now?
you could learn quite a bit from The Bourne Identity and its sequels, particularly on the subject of MK-ULTRA assassins, and where they come from.
but that was made in 2002, which I guess is almost ancient history now.
Starship Troopers (1997) also has its moments; certainly it would be unmakeable now. it’s almost like a satire of the Terror War in advance of the fact, which is hard to understand, on any theory.
Sometimes unexpected allegories pop up in the unlikeliest places e.g. in the Christopher Eccleston series of Doctor Who, there was the 2 episode Slaveen story where an alien family (significantly NOT a race) attempted to con humanity into starting a suicidal global conflagration through the fraudulent posing of an alien menace armed with “massive weapons of distruction”. This was initiated by a 9/11 type attack on Big Ben.
Not sure if I’d agree with everything stated above, but there are some excellent points.
The bottom line is that fighting COVID-19 is not about fighting the perpetrators at the WHO, the peddler of shitty software, Klaus “Cockroach” Schwab, the WEF, CIA, the MSM, whatever.
It’s about fighting the multiple layers of indoctrination in people’s heads, the heaps of trash wherewith people in the Occident and beyond have been brainwashed with over decades and decades, as each new technological invention has made it easier and easier.
People have been well prepped, and now the PTBs are about to reap what they have sown. Too many people are so fucked up in the head that they don’t allow themselves to accept that what’s taking place is pure BS. And out of those who have retained enough marbles to see through it, only a small fraction are vocal about it – the rest are afraid of rocking the boat, being excommunicated – and an even smaller fraction are willing to actively resist. All of this has been aided by clever salami-slice tactics, scaremongering, every trick in the book.
The biggest problem is that to fight this, one would need means to deprogram people, to open their eyes, to bring them from virtual oblivion to reality, but for that you need means of communication, all of which are owned and controlled by the m-effers behind it.
The choice is to take back your life or be controlled by the NWO NAZIS of the World Economic Forum..aka the Davos mobsters and their Rothschild ilk. Only by becoming a permanent, self-harming bag of infectious filth with all the symbols of your New World Order dictated “status” with their genocidal modified DNA hydrogel “vaccine” polluting your “precious bodily fluids” can you ever hope to be “free” again. The sheeple don’t get it and they never will, not even when their retarded children are born and family members start dropping like flies. Therein lies the danger of all being stampeded aboard the cattle wagons with the morons.
Remember for the psychopaths running this global Psy Op, you are the disease and the ruling class and their Satanic NWO is the only cure you can ever expect.
NAZI Klaus Schwab…“Ve have veys of making you pooohr”. chuckle…snicker…grunt…snort…kotzen

Your “New Normal” TheLastAmericanVagabond Published October 24, 2020
I’m ready to ‘take back my life’ right now.
But I don’t have Fauci’s, Gates’s, Ferguson’s or Hancock’s address, and the CIA refuse to let me in.
I don’t even know where they’re keeping it.
Can you help?
I find these “Plague on all your houses” articles hard to follow. Maybe it because I didn’t have the benefit of a higher education.
Certainly the article amply details the grotesque machinations of govt secret service organisations but is there any need for the ubiquitous dragging in of the hated orange man ?
Trump is no saviour but several things need to be admitted by those at the liberal end of the scale. He does have huge and genuine but largely hidden support , it’s not a confection made in Hollywood . He’s had the entire establishment on his back for four and a half years and has carried on. He just won a massive vote win in the election that’s been scandalously misappropriated.
He may be part of the “kabuki” . I think the jury is still out on that.
Where does the Orange Man stand on vaccines?
Didn’t Mr Hitler and Benito (my Sicilian mother-in-law said he was a very good man) have very large followings?
Looks to me like your education was high enough.
After all, do we really need teachers to show us how to open a book?
Even bigger than Hollywoods budget is the budget pumped into the Games Industry. I’m sure it won’t be hard to find the proaganda in full flow

I was already very suspicious that the flu vaccines they were giving to the old, might contain cancers and other illnesses to bump them off early. And since life expectancy has begun to decrease recently, as the government raise the pensionable age, like a financial pincer movement, my suspicion has intensified.
We need to seek the experience of others who have been subjected to CIA inspired fascist coups, like this one. What happened to the press, …. did the people fall in line….. what happened to the opposition? And who rose to the service of the fascists. We need to seek the experienced of those who suffered this occupation and destruction, the people of Venezuela know what we are going through, all too well and the people of Bolivia defeated it.
“The drama of the mask is one of transitioning into full tilt fascism.”
The current psyop was centuries in the making. But those who are directing it have moved with ruthlessly efficient speed. It barely seems like five minutes ago that we were just living our lives as we’d always done. And then, all of a sudden…BOOM! We’re all wearing little nappies on our faces to go to the supermarket. People are jumping out of the way of their fellow human beings for fear of catching this terrible disease.
The unquestioning acceptance of the official narrative, that shamefully supine acquiescence to authority, is the real killer in this situation. NOT a mere virus (how many of those has humanity survived?). And anyway, ”Covid-19” hasn’t even been proved to exist. Whenever I hear someone talk about ”the Covid” – and what an annoying little phrase that is – it strikes me as being a hollow term. Meaningless, made-up. Which it is, of course! It’s sheer bollocks.
But people have fallen for it with embarrassing ease. I feel ashamed of these people for being so easily duped. Where are their powers of analysis? And where the fuck is their backbone?
You may be surprised to discover that those who provide the negative path, as Guardians, also find their challenge difficult.
You, as an individualised portion of Creation, do not have responsibility for otherselves.
You may love them and wish them well on their chosen path, but the First Distortion of Free Will must be upheld.
The process of Harvest is well underway and no amount of hand waving and moral posturing will impede the unfolding of events.
You could describe our times as being the ‘heating up of the polarities ‘.
If individuals are prepared to delegate their responsibility for the body, then they by default forfeit their authority over the physical vessel.
If the desire to aid society is strong then work first on the self and behold the transformation of the world you observe.
You could also describe our times as being ”interesting.”
But only if you are from Ankh Morpork
‘Interesting’ has to be a euphemism for ‘unable to comprehend’.
I’ve always had an implicit faith in humanity and its destiny. But these last months have made me question it more than I’d ever previously done. I sometimes feel like giving up on people who just won’t be helped. I’ve tried my best to tell others the way I see things unfolding. I might as well have talked to the nearest brick wall.
However, I’m sure that those who are running the world would love to see us give up on each other. Which is reason enough by itself for us to continue fighting their plans and helping each other.
Agreed. And this is what makes things ‘easier’ in a way. Because absolutely nobody will listen to us. No matter what. It’s a waste of time explaining things and forwarding articles, even to your loved ones. The best we can get in return is, “if you say so”. Clearly, the majority of people carry a veil over their eyes, and only God can lift that veil.
not centuries in the making they pull psyop every week the bigger one every 4 years like voting elections the fake terrorist attacks and every 19 years they remind people who is in charge.
they chemtrail the planet daily 3 times daily in some areas
they put toxin’s in the water supply and on fruit and veg,
Animals are genetically modified and general; public ques to get more, subway got busted for metal fillings in it bread and business was hardly effected.
They knew for 50 years smoking caused all sorts they knew cutlery and cooking pans leech chemicals which caused slow death etc etc etc Bs19 was walk in the park for theses parasite elites as many still brainwashed they even clapped once a week for it.
I could go on all lifetime with these hacks.
All the psyops they’ve pulled over a very long period of time have led to this one. They refine their tactics with each one (especially with big ones such as 9/11).
That’s what I meant when I said that it had been centuries in the making.
Yeah. Ww1+ww2 were biggies.
Definitely Millenia – not just centuries. Which kind of gives away where the roots of this present ‘comes around’ originate.
Alan Watts had a brilliant talk/session:
“Uncarved Block, Unbleached Silk.”
Possibly the most revealing explanation as to why humanity has arrived at this moment in time. The ‘problem’ has always been ‘consciousness’. And will remain to be so – to the day a human being awakes to the reality of its existence.
Such human beings have always existed, but people find it uncomfortable to read about them.
Ignorance is always fashionable.
Yeah, okay. Millennia, rather than centuries. There’s a quote from a Spanish economist called José Luis Sampedro: No hemos aprendido a vivir (We haven’t yet learned how to live). How can this be, after all this time?
Thanks for the video recommendation. I’ll be watching it this evening.
Nice to see you back in the comments section, by the way.
Was the John Hopkins report indicating that the whole show is a fraud, with deaths from Covid matching exactly the reduction in normal deaths? Is that food for those of us who doubt the official narrative? are they feeding us a counter narrative to keep us in opposition, to identify us, to cause disquiet? what is their game? I never trust when the criminal inform the counter narrative.
It was retracted.
They have been censored, threatened and nobbled.
It is not considered safe to tell the truth. Just as in Orwell’s novel.
The vaccine does not need to work because the virus has gone, only fraudulent figures and journalists are keeping it alive. Relabelled Covid, respiratory disease is at normal levels for this time of year.
When was it found?
You are in good company because nobody else does either including the international pharmaceuticals corporations, most of the worlds governments, the WHO, WEF and all the zealots demanding the vaccine as the panacea for all the problems of the world. It reminds me in a diverse way of the old saying a fool and his money is easily parted which could transpose to a fool and their liberty is easily parted!
Yep… herd of modern moron fools! I usually end that one with “slaves”…
All those in opposition to the lockdowns, especially on talk-radio are pushing the vaccine as our saviour. Nobody is on the side of liberty, nobody, all bases are covered.
That’s how democracy works… Keep voting for scoundrels and liars!
The World has seemingly been turned upside down, and everything seems so surreal and dreamlike. I can’t think of a word to describe it, but how things are now…. Bonkers.
And now news that the vaccines are being rolled out in the UK, and soon, everywhere else, including Australia.
Victorian Premier, the truly pyschopathic Daniel Andrews has repeatedly stated this year that the ‘covid normal would continue until every Victorian had been vaccinated’.
There’s basically nowhere to hide.
I’m glad you named names of the despicable, vile, alleged Left, and alleged ‘progressives’ such as Zizek, Counterpunch, Chris Hedges, Bhaskar Sunkara and the other ‘woke’ frauds.
We can add the names of Tim Anderson, Caitlin Johnstone, Louis Proyect and sadly, even John Pilger seems to be a covid cult believer. There are many others.
This, for me, has been one of the biggest shocks this year. The rank betrayal of much of the Left.
I haven’t been to the cinema since January, and I won’t anymore. The same applies to cafes, which I did often. I won’t take part in the contact tracing crap, nor will I scan a QR code merely to enter a store. However, these fascistic measures will be rolled out more and more, and things will become increasingly difficult to navigate.
I note that the security upgrade of Southern Cross Train Station here in Melbourne continues, and I wonder what ‘upgrades’ will be put in place to allow people to travel. Or not.
Hang in there Gezzah!
You too Shin. Not long now, and they’ll be rolling out the vaccines (or whatever it is) here in Australia. I actually have customers who are literally on their knees wanting the jab… yesterday.
Good luck to you✌️
Gez, me old china! Good to see you on here. I’d noticed that you hadn’t commented on here for a few days. (Dunno, maybe you had, but I’d missed it).
Anyhoo…bonkers is surely the correct adjective for what’s unfolding before our eyes. It’s collective insanity! I bet the wankers who are running things can’t believe how easy it’s been to get people to radically change their behaviour.
Sadly, a large number of our fellow human beings are complete and utter mugs.
Every so often I need ‘time out’ so take a break for 4-5 days. The ones behind the scamdemic are probably rolling round on their hand made Persian rugs laughing their heads off at how easy it’s been for them.
Hope your weekend goes well Gwyn… Batten down the hatches, a big storm is coming.
Very wise to take a break, Gezzah. Recharge the batteries! And thanks; I hope you have a good weekend, too. :o)
Since when is Caitlin Johnstone “a covid cult believer”? Why are you attempting to malign Caitlin?
Caitlin Johnstone has said disputing the official narrative on Da Covid is “boring and irrelevant”. I disagree with that statement; it’s the most imp’t issue of our
time, and the bellwether for the New Dark Age our “betters” have planned
for most of us.
Same story w/ Jonathan Cook, too, BTW. “Not very important” according to him.
boring and irrelevant
that’s what the hipster left always said about the 9/11 hoax, back when that was the essential pretext for the entire ruling-class program. now that they’ve moved on to bigger and better things, we hear that those are boring and irrelevant, too.
funny how that works.
Sadly, exactly the same wretched script which led to Chomsky dismissing 9/11 as a “who cares?” issue…
It has become so odiously obvious that some voices with large numbers of ‘followers’ (subscribers) have very recently switched sides.
Sure, the owners are tightening the thumbscrews – but what could it be that a person having portrayed to be ‘with the people’ all over sudden promotes in no small fashion that certain things need to be done. Because virus.
It is so obvious how the game is played. Sadly though, the voices the people deemed to be with them are now throwing the dissenters under the bus. Especially Johnstone has shifted since she writes for rt. The shooting star of medium has turned into another gaslighter for the ownerclass.
Gaslighting has become the order of the day. It is everywhere and it is devastating to the psyche.
Perhaps ‘covid cult member’ was the wrong term regards her specifically.
I lumped her in with cretins like Tim Anderson. Probably the correct term is gutless and cowardly.
However, can you explain her deafening silence on the scamdemic for literally all of this year? Can you explain that when numerous people challenged her silence and her refusal to condemn the draconian lockdowns here in Melbourne (and elsewhere) she not only became abusive, but she blocked those people. She did the exact same to me.
Can you kindly point me to Any articles she wrote condemning either the incredibly harsh lockdowns or over the top police brutality, especially here in Victoria. Any articles Hotrod?
There are other things I could say, but that would constitute hearsay coming from other people. In my own opinion, she’s a complete fraud.
The NWO has managed to get tons of Conservatives, who follow Trump, to beg for Martial Law in order to “preserve our liberties.” If there was ever 5D chess, THAT is it! Well played NWO. Well played!
The Patriot Tran-Q-liser – as it tricks the patriots to sit on their hands because the plan is working behind the scenes and arrests are coming, (which never happen)
Pilger has always been a Bolshevik Marxist shit, so what do you expect?
is that you, Adolf?
Adolf was a pussie compared to me.
If only you had the faintest idea what a Bolshevik, a Marxist, the Left, or the Right actually were…
Yet another stand-up comedian. Feel free to give us your ignorant BS opinion and confirm your comedian credentials.
The Left disappeared when covid came. This has been for me almost as traumatic as the virus scam itself – indeed I can’t separate the two i.e. the virus scam depended on Leftist rhetoric.
And that happenstance brings out the vexatious issue as to how this Left were false all along. I think it works like this: there has always been an underlying Left which was correct and sincere. But it was always being guided by “The Management” i.e. the capitalist class.
Such guidance had various methods: conspiracy phobia, (with all its implications e.g. working on the snobbery and intellectual vanity of those proud thinkers who didn’t want to be associated with those “paranoid morons” etc.), deliberate fostering of diversionary fluff (identity politics, “wokism”, and the various other fixations of an affluent citizenry), the encouragement of a chronic factionalism and so on.
In short, there was the construction of a pliable parody of Leftism which could easily be taken up for criticism by the Right (and such was the sad success of the malformations that this critical Right were often spot on in their sneers).
But all of the above amount to control of the Left in normal times (i.e. that happily affluent little bubble experienced by the West in the post WW2 world).
Now something much bigger is required. And the Left have been activated as “hidden secret weapon” for a last resort restructuring of the West. This last resort is, of course, the covid manoeuvre.
Covid is thus a closed theatre. The Left and right positions have been carefully constructed for the development of the show. And we are only watching the overture so far.
We’re in the same boat on this George. I told you about the so called ‘revolutionary socialist’ group here in Australia that is fully on board with the scamdemic. All of them here in Australia are on board, spearheaded by your pals, the WSWS.
Your comment is spot on, and I also agree that this has barely begun.
It’s an inversion of political philosophy. The so left, eg Canary, Vox, Media Lens, Skwakbox in the UK support the lockdowns etc. Yet, the right wing lockdownskeptics.org site run by Toby Young are standing up to the narrative about the “ pandemic “. But of course as soon as you start thinking about what what Antony C Sutton stated decades and decades ago when he discovered that the Transnational Financiers had financed both the Bolsheviks, The Nazis and proclaimed to be capitalists his prophetic statement still rings true “ there is no left or right, there is us against them “.
‘Left’ and ‘Right’ are needed for a match. And while the masses are matching, the ownercass is consolidating its control over the masses. Has been like that for over two hundred years, with Pinkertons enforcing the religion like status of ‘them up there’ and ‘us down here’. It is a religion by any other name. “Rich versus ‘Poor'”. That status has not changed one iota since the mowing down of strikers at the late 19th century. Very odd also, that Pinkertons are having a big comeback. Because virus…
there has always been an underlying Left which was correct and sincere.
I think you’re giving them far too much credit. the people who are influential in the western “left” are almost all on the ruling-class payroll in one way or another, through their upper-middle-class careers as university academics, NGO bureaucrats, and allegedly-alternative-media journalists. they must be at least subconsciously aware that their continued funding depends on not displeasing their “philanthropic” and government sponsors, and of what ideas are permissible, and which are not. their performance relative to the 9/11 hoax was a very large preview of the current farcical debacle. the collapse happened decades ago; what you are now seeing is merely the last of the wreckage hitting the ground.
it’s really not any more complicated than that.
It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it. — Upton Sinclair
Many underlings remind me of that famous photo of the Empire running away in defeat from Saigon in 1963. One of the last helicopters is perched on a concrete rooftop, and people are clambering by a ladder to it. The quislings among the Vietnamese are clamouring to be saved too.
The Left actually disappeared when Maggie Thatcher simply swept it under the carpet and ignored it until it rotted away.
Tony Bliar put the finishing touches to the job.
I have a theory. Did you ever see Tony and Margaret together?
Yes, one has to wonder what actually happened to the Left? Where did it/they go? Well, as a native German, Willi Brandt was ‘left’ and so was Olof Palme. Henry A. Wallace was probably the last truly ‘left’ politician in the U.S. And he paid a high price for that. That was shortly after the war. After his ouster, the dismantling of the left began – it never really recovered from McFascist’s house committee on unamerican activities.
The left fears nothing more than being ‘un-american’ and thus left the playing field to the ‘right’. It seems to be a futile task to search for a true leftist – someone speaking up for the little people. For the workers. Keeping Unions free from ownerclass’ stooges at the helms of these ‘unions’.
Maybe the only left left is the Social-ists.
Unfortunately, the term ‘social’ and ‘socialist’ – and to a lesser degree ‘progressive’ are now also immediately gaslighted. One must know how to withstand that mental bullying. Most cave in, unable to escape the gaslighting. Which leaves the masses vulnerable to manipulation.
The American composer Conlon Nancarrow joined the communist party and went to fight Franco in Spain. On attempting to return to the US, he found they would not let him in until he had signed a document saying he totally renounced communism. He refused and had to relocate to Mexico. So much for the Land of the Free!
Charlie Chaplin had remained a British subject during his time in Hollywood (not taking out US citizenship was one reason he was criticised) and when he went abroad on holiday and to distribute his latest film Limelight he was notified that his re-entry to the USA was revoked. The US government did not have much of a leg to stand on if he had decided to contest it legally, but Chaplin chose to remain outside the US, eventually settling in Switzerland. James McGranery, the Democratic Attorney-General who revoked Chaplin’s re-entry, was photographed while he congratulated Roy Cohn when the latter was sworn in as an internal security investigator. Cohn was later a sort of mentor to Donald Trump – a sort of five degrees or less of separation between Trump and Charlie Chaplin?
The term for leftists adopting the virus narrative is “useful idiots.” They see that the narrative is the means of effecting change, and play along in the naive hope that they will not at last be also victims of the instigators.
I do actually envy you to a certain degree given the vast size of your country there is at least a possibility to escape to isolated places and perhaps find a little solitude….Here in the UK much less of a chance of doing that
I have been contemplating getting a boat for that reason. There is lots of space and few people. Not counting war ships, of course. But there are corners of the oceans that invite to stay. However, a Dinghy might not suffice to pull that off. I was more thinking along the lines of purchasing a decommissioned tanker and convert it to a floating perma culture refuge…
Re ‘progressives’ and the faux Left, it just goes to show that anyone and everyone who got elected, published, cast in films and TV shows or otherwise ‘platformed’ in the past 100+ years was hand-picked by the military-industrial-intelligence complex.
To get someone’s name out there takes a lot of promotion and that costs money. And the System won’t put up the money unless it considers that person very, very useful (= amoral, schizoid, blackmail-able, easy to manipulate).

I’m getting really sick of all these conspiracy theorists running around pretending there’s a super-virus out there so deadly that the only way to save grandma is by suspending everyone’s rights and bankrupting small businesses like the dictator of China did.
Funniest part is that not even China proposed so much regulation for such a long time
The people are cowards and they are going along with it, it is just like the rise of nazism, just the same, the fear, the slogans, the swastika over the mouth.
Today they are using a different tactic!
Oh yes, just the one I was waiting for…..however remove the mask add blue circle to coat of vaccinated…..will be everybit as effective
hardly, it’s nothing like nazism, whilst you’re all locked up at home reading drivel scribbled on the internet and having an epiphany about your betrayal by the left..

Under The Sign Of The Scorpion; by Jüri Lina
The Soviet Empire was established at four minutes past two o’clock on the 8th of November 1917 in the Russian capital, Petrograd. In astrological terms, the sun was just then precisely at the centre of the sign of Scorpio. Thus Scorpio can be regarded as the symbol and guardian of Soviet power.
an interesting little astronomical alignment coming up on the equinox, 21st of december… our overlords love such things.
I doubt whether the USSR can be explained in terms of the pseudo-science called astrology, whose foundations were laid by people who thought the earth was the centre of the known universe.
Interesting also that the hammer and sickle while largely being ignorantly accepted as ‘tools of the workers’ are actually both occultic symbols representing the forces behind the rise of revolution.
Ironic, we might need to emigrate to China to get a little freedom !
[Ironic, we might need to emigrate to China to get a little freedom !]
Not just yet. Freedom is waning in the “Western world.”
But China is still worse, and it is presently waning there as well.
In short: Freedom is waning all over the world.
Why did China recover without a vaccine? And why doesn’t anybody talk about it?
In that terrible Communist regime guess what ? Nightclubs are open so are Bars so is open mics in freedom living u.k YOUR not even allowed to sing or dance wedding funerals are restricted
8 months in clubs and theatre has been closed and they the (artists) are told to re train and get another job!
This Chinese sociologist spoke recently on state run tv saying the US will fall. He mentions the virus.
I feel like the virus is a psychological weapon as opposed to a bio-weapon and it worked. Just my opinion.
At least now in the US as in other places lockdown protests are beginning to percolate.
It’s no coincidence that the chinese social credit system is based on tiers….we are being accustomed to it here prior to its introduction….it wont be a wholesale introduction ….it’ll be drip drip drip as it ever was
you are correct mr magumba, there will be tears.
Also: the first cases of this ‘virus’ occurred in the U.S. in 2019. Wuhan happened after the ‘war games’, that were also attended by U.S. ‘war gamers’. The thing was made in the USA and then distributed widely.
What is never mentioned for obvioys reasons:
Fatalities from PM 2.5 (particular matter smaller than 2.5 micron) were 4.2 million in 2019. A look at the air pollution satellite map reveals that the so called ‘hotbeds’ of infections were without exception places with the highest PM 2.5 air pollution. All of the ‘centers’ of ‘outbreaks’ were in areas with life threatening air pollution. Life threatening pollution.
Air pollution did not leave the planet in 2020. It is actually worse than ever before and only a verifiable fool would correlate the ‘virus fatalities’ with the PM 2.5 soup that is covering the entire planet.
Ventusky has real time PM 2.5 satellite products. You can see where the highest numbers of ‘infected’ are by looking at the highest pollution. That is not a joke. Nobody died from this idiot disease. People are croaking at record numbers from PM 2.5 air pollution. And this air pollution can be seen seeded every day in South America. It comes in many parallel lines covering the entirety of the sky.
Coincidentically, the more lines in the sky – the more fatalities from the ‘virus’.
Just ponder about the fact that 4.2 million people died from respiratory failure due to PM 2.5 in 2019. They did not all die in the last month of 2019. By spring of 2019, the uptick in respiratory failures was obvious. Why were people not mandated to wear masks then? Total fatalities from ‘virus’ are still under 2 million – half of what the air pollution did for depopulation.
The fact that (quasi) nobody talks about the 4.2 million departed of 2019, but everybody about the grave dangers of a ‘virus’ in 2020 leaves only room for full throttle conspiracy. Not a theory at it.
“Covid”-fatalities are actually PM 2.5 fatalities. They are no longer counted as respiratory failure due to air pollution – but are now ‘covid’ fatalities.
PM 2.5 map on Ventusky
You may have to switch to the PM 2,5 tab.
Some people read off guardian for the articles. I actually read it for the comments. Definitely some of the most intelligent thoughtful people gather here. And you all are what brings me back.
Thanks. Something suspicious: the PM2.5 map shows the most heavily polluted area as a great band in the northern Hemisphere stretching from West Africa to China – even including the Himalayas. However, there is almost no visible pollution in the entire Americas.
In a communist/socialist country, there is little scope for finger-pointing or hand-waving. The “buck stops” with the government. If it halts “non-essential” livelihoods such as the arts/entertainment, it must come up with an alternative for the victims. Hence the serious evaluation, all-out implementation and rapid cessation of restrictions.
Freedom will always be waning in China for the likes of you, Mister: staggering drunk, grabbing the ladies’ private parts, shouting at traffic..
Even the magically produced BLM are pro maskers. Oh, Im black and my black mates also smell a rat.
china has a differing of opinion as regards immigrants to our beloved sceptic isles.
liberal democracy is neither and needless to say you wont make it into the bat soup totalitarian utopia.
head for latin america by boat whilst you can.
No passenger tickets for freighter cruises until spring 2021. Told me the only freighter passenger line in Italy. Leaves only private skippers to make the trip.
Fiji is a much better place to sail to. Latin America is a powderkeg next to some out of control Amazon incineration. One can smell the haze coming from Brazil. Argentina is totally bankrupt. Brazil is descending into a civl war. So are Peru and Chile, where nothing goes anymore. Venezuela? Ecuador? Columbia? No. Especially not Uruguay, where people are jogging, cycling and driving in small cars with a mask on, Mind you that masks are not mandatory outdoors. Only in public places, offices and stores.
I was yelled at to put on my Tapa Loca at Tienda Inglesa – while the store workers were walking around with masks that were pulled below the nose. No problem there…
China has the Wests oligarchs investments to maintain. The oligarchs own populations infrastructure is not theirs.
Certainly what is happening is a dystopia. I do however think there is hope in many countries, including UK, US, India, Czech Republic, Belgium, Germany, Australia (the list is long, and I dont know people from all over the earth), because there are truly honest, courageous people from all walks of life that are speaking plainly, without fear of consequences on themselves, in particular scientists and doctors who are highlighting the untruths and doing their work in full honesty, lawyers who are relentlessly making case after case in alliance with these scientists. They are few, but they are there and its never more than a small minority that has ever, at any period, had the courage of living their values, of denouncing untruths.
However there are countries without hope, or so I have come to believe after an email I received this morning, one of the foremost being France. I had come to meet the small team that runs a magazine called Nexus (nexus.fr). Its independent and they have had in the past and also throughout this surreal period good articles investigating and denouncing many aspects of current affairs. They are the only such magazine I found in France.
So I got in touch with them, and we began to collaborate. Regarding whether or not there is a pandemic, I had until now my own opinion, but I had not gone deeply into the scientific and mathematical arguments and data (I am myself a mathematician, near to physics, or let us say was until I resigned my professorship). So I decided to do so (it was painful and nauseating, and took ages) and now I can say with certitude that no pandemic (in terms of mortality and hospital cases) has occurred so far, and no pandemic has been evidenced to have occurred: something mild may have occurred, but there is evidence to show it has, nor is there evidence of a new disease, at least not so far.
A group of true honest scientists (who aim to return true science, and have for some years now been denouncing the dogma that speaks in its name) published that article couple of days ago. Their site is in English and its an international group.
In less than 24hrs their site (which has published many articles highlighting untruths) was under a DDOS attack, and in particular my article became totally inaccessible.
I sent a copy of the article to Nexus as we had vaguely discussed this questions of whether or not there had been a pandemic, and informed them about the DDOS attack.
I received from them a surprising emai this morning: that they believe in the pandemic, in a new disease. It gets worse: they said they hoped they wouldnt have problems with authorities because of some authorities’ attack on my article and the site it was published on.
First its always interesting when people talk about “belief” regarding something that either is or is not. But its the second part of the email that shocked me.
They are a very rare group in France of journalists who indeed as I said are independent and I thought were honest, the only ones who had gone a long way in their analysis of the current crisis. The one or two other groups are even worse: they just refuse to even delve into questions, and remain superficial, incessantly repeating masks are no good, be careful of vaccines, but remain clear of any analysis that shows the whys and hows of the events, are even afraid to use the terms dystopia, fascism, or what not.
Where is the French minority that stood up to both Vichy and the Nazi invader?
No the GJ are not necessarily that minority: they have remained largely quiet about current events, and have taken no stand on it. In my opinion the reason why they have been successfully marginalized.
are you allowed to publish your article on here.?
Here’s a link: https://principia-scientific.com/a-pandemic-what-pandemic/
.The team that runs the site managed to finally protect itself.
I would like to insist that as I say there, there is no evidence as of today, but if one day convincing evidence of a pandemic, I will certainly change my position. But given the absence of evidence, and given the numerical data,
at worst I dont see how it could show more than some mild disease.
Hence sure if we take the 2009 WHO definition of a pandemic, there might have been a mild one without severe cases necessitating hospitalization and without fatalities that appear in statistics, but even in that case, a mild outbreak has not yet been scientifically evidenced. If sufficient evidence one day is found, Id be quite happy to affirm there has been one according to the 2009 WHO definition.
But there certainly has not been any according to mundane definitions.
Now as to whether we should bother about mild unnoticeable outbreaks is a different question, in fact if they go below the radar and are beyond detection, I dont quite logically see what it means to bother…
The whole narrative is so illogical (its nauseating). Truly logic should be a compulsory subject from school onwards. We must learn to think more
solidly so to speak, and to differentiate between opinion and belief in an untruth. Truths are beyond the human mind and will have to remain a personal matter, but to some extent, we are able to conclusively say something is untrue.
That’s a FACT!
I’ve sent the image bellow to a group of lung “experts” asking them “Which one is the “COVID-19″ CT?”
Not one got it correct…
So which one is it??
You can’t figure it out also?!
It’s A2, according to the priests of COVIDIUS… for anyone else it’s just another pneumonia!
If it pushes forced equality with Palestinians I would assume so.
Guardian/ Off Guardian for ankers Opinion piece.
The French have had a long history of trusting their government look at how they have been rewarded with some of the best health, social care and services in the world, they have had good reason to trust their government. Sadly they have not learned yet that the Anglo-Saxon rulers who have now occupying their land seers them as the enemy and it will be too late by the time they realise, who is doing this to them, their country will be totally asset stripped and impoverished.

“Marxists… like Chris Hedges…who are all now actively aligned with US Imperialist interests.…”
Seriously? That equation is meant to be taken seriously? I was getting aware of how patchy the persuasiveness of this essay was before, with its many quotations of airy verbiage from writers not noted for their sharp-edged, plain-language clarity; but by the time I reached this cloud-cuckoo-land canard I decided: ‘Time to ditch this incompetent stuff and find something else more worth reading’.
Sure, the deep state rackets in USAmerica strive to control publicly-believed narratives, particularly through the constant mind-sewage flood of Hollyshite. Tell us something new. But Chris Hedges a ‘marxist’ supporter of US imperialism? What!! From which parallel universe does this writer come? Mark him down as worth no further attention.
In Dmitry Orlov’s latest mailout to his subscribers, one ex-pat USAnian commenter relates a story of a European psychologist visiting the US who was warned that the usual battery of psychological tests for adult respondents, that work in Europe and other parts of the world, don’t work in USAmerica. There, it’s necessary to apply tests which have been developed for children and teens. Those work for USAnians. The ones for adults don’t.
Seems that this stricture has to be applied now to many US (alleged) intelligentsia commentators too.
I suppose that this is one of the many blessings of several generations growing up in the stronghold of neoliberal ‘free market’ (hah!) economic lunacies, as a smokescreen for naked criminal-gangster corporate capitalism. It leads increasingly to uneducated, reality-detached, and childlike citizens, brimming over with carefully-nurtured populist flat-earthy delusions. The sort of inadequates who will watch their presidential election get stolen quite blatantly, and still stay passive as their republic and its constitution are dismantled before their eyes – so long as the toys and amusements, and an at-least-adequate supply of junky ‘food’ all keep on flowing – for a short while longer: Stay comfy, and live marinated in one’s own personal selection of half-baked delusions, and let tomorrow take care of itself; as it will, appallingly for rank-and-file USAnians…
[Stay comfy, and live marinated in one’s own personal selection of half-baked delusions…]
Well, frankly, that sound like you describing some of your own comments.
Here is an example:
[Seriously? That equation is meant to be taken seriously? I was getting aware of how patchy the persuasiveness of this essay was before, with its many quotations of airy verbiage from writers not noted for their sharp-edged, plain-language clarity; but by the time I reached this cloud-cuckoo-land canard I decided: ‘Time to ditch this incompetent stuff and find something else more worth reading’.]
Let me summarise your verbose “argument:” They are incompetent. And not “sharp-edged.” And “patchy.” And “cloud-cuckoo-land canard.”
That’s it. Your “argument” reads like one ad hominem after the other. That is the whole and the extent of your paragraph-long “argument.”
To complain, with reference to an argument, about incompetence, lack of clarity and “patchiness” is hardly ad hominem.
I have often mused on the trajectory taken by many so called marxists and trotskyites toward what may be termed a neo-liberal position.
the pnac clowns, bill kristol, keir starmer, etc etc ad nauseum.
I agree. Johnstone and Hedges are climate crisis or more specifically UN carbon hating climate goal devotees, at least as i understand it. To this end they are in bed with Schwab (gross) and the Horrific Setback crowd. Their work doesn’t/can’t pass this monolith beyond which dwells covid.
I think perhaps you need to be keeping a closer eye on Claus’ little bitch ….Jeremy Jurgens….i dont know what he identifies as but its not on my list of things i’ve ended up with after a night of heavy drinking and substance abuse
Some additional thoughts:
Guddaffi: the movie 72 hours was interesting, during the attack on the US and the secret CIA annex, we saw the contractors defending the compound, trying to rescue the Ambassador, and a whole bunch of CIA staffers, not grabbing guns but burning files, were they cold or was it all those manpads theyd ‘destroyed’ that happened to find there way onto a boat to Syria
Gary Webb murder: fake news, the autopsy report said suicide, by double gunshot to the head. Its official and should be in the Guinness Book of records
Unsolved murders: somone should do an episode on Admiral William C Rodgers, who was in charge when the USS Vicennes shot down Iran Air 655 and killed 290 innocent men, women and children, the US has never apologised. There was a subsequent nail bomb attack on the Admiral and his wife, the investigation somehow blamed it on a spate of recent nailbombers, nothing to see here.
My heart beats faster, my breath shortens, as the news comes on, I feel the terror, as I listen to the quislings lie and squirm in self satisfied pompous proclamations as they fondle with tyranny and toy with my fear. A choir of evil, surrounded by a court of sycophants, liars and frauds. Their words harm me, pierce me, what are they going to do to me next, they have destroyed my work, my liberty, my life, are they going to murder me now or take my children?
We all know now what it feels like to live in an occupied land. To have our pleasures destroyed, our liberties wrenched from us, our children terrorised & bathed in fear, unable to explain to them why. Our old suffer what they fear above all else, loneliness and isolation, they fear nothing worse than that, yet they are subjected to it in their final days, not even allowed to say a fond goodbye or ‘I love you’. Our subconscious denying us sleep, shouting run!…… hide! from the beasts that now fills the night.
And after the sunrise, forced to suffer the indignity of wearing the insignia, the mark of the beast, the swastika of an occupying power, struggling for breath as our leaders betray us, see our friends distance from us, as we become the dangerous one, with rogue ideas and thoughts, and you see our family surrender to tyranny without even a ‘no thank you’.
This is what it was like to live in occupied France in the 40’s, Nazi Germany in the 30s, or in Palestine in the 2020s, the fear of a test, the fear of a medical truck, a knock on the door, the humiliation, the terror and dehumanisation.
I shall never be at peace again, because I have seen the beast in those around me and I will now always live with the pain of betrayal and with fear in my heart. I am damaged.
The article is a mirror image of what it accuses American conservatives of. Just as conservatives are primed to see “communism” everywhere so the leftist is primed to see “fascism” everywhere. Conventional leftist analysis of fascism isn’t much use for understanding where we are. The author falls back on the ridiculous class analysis of fascism as some sort of petit bourgeois phenomenon. How exactly is what we’re seeing now a product of the petit bourgeois? If anything, the strongest support seems to me to be in the public sector middle class, a class so much leftist analysis ignores perhaps because so many of them belong to it. The middle class are on the chopping block of ‘The Great Reset’ and painting them as enemies is just going to divide any potential resistence movement and render it impotent. This is not by accident. It’s the same game the elite played with special agent Marx and they do like to repeat their playbooks (and why not if they keep working?).
The author keeps citing people from the 1960s and 1970s counter-culture as if they were heroes. Can anyone really be that ignorant of what we now know about Adorno? Who on earth can still think Sydney Pollock was some fearless exposer of the CIA when he’s now revealed as an Israeli spy, played the embodiment of the corrupt elite in EYES WIDE SHUT and prepared the way for transgenderism in TOOTSIE? BTW, the likes of Leary and McKenna both loved A.I.
‘The Great Reset’ is currently like that inkblot psy-op. People can see fascism or communism or liberalism in it because there are elements of all of these in it and it’s their prior programming responding. Talk about equality and abolishing private property sounds communist, talk about the control grid and the corporate-state fusion sounds fascist, talk about fairness and justice sounds liberal. However there isn’t even a pretense of glorifying the workers or manual labour, it’s profoundly anti-nationalistic (and anti-rural unlike Nazism) and it hates individualism. Schwab has taken elements of each ideology and mashed them together. He proclaims this is the “Final Revolution” so is it surprising he’ll have synthesised all opposites? This reconciliation of opposites just happens to be the goal of freemasonic adepts, it is what Baphomet represents.
[The article is a mirror image of what it accuses American conservatives of. Just as conservatives are primed to see “communism” everywhere so the leftist is primed to see “fascism” everywhere.]
Horseshoe theory may be an interesting perspective. Even only gently beginning to nudge communism and fascism towards their ideological extremes, both easily manifest as totalitarianism.
The Leninist “dictatorship of the proletariat” is hardly distinguishable from Mussolini’s “corporatist state.”
Both of their messages to me is: Submit. Obey. Give up your freedoms. Your “superiors” have decided for you. Wear your mask. Take your “approved” vaccine.
Whenever the word Fascist is thrown out casually, you’ve identified a Marxist most likely ignorant of the fact that both Mussolini and Hitler are well-known in certain exclusive circles to be Marxists, what Marxists call the ‘false opposition’:
As soon as the World War I operation had ended, Marxists began planning for the World War II operation with the creation of that war’s two false opposition fronts, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and the National Fascist Party in Italy. Benito Mussolini was a well known and influential Marxist before the Comintern ordered that he take up a new identity as leader of the National Fascist Party; Italian fascists held positions in the Comintern.
As for Adolf Hitler’s Marxist pedigree, one-third of Hitler’s SA and Gestapo personnel were ‘former’ Marxists whom Hitler ordered were to be immediately accepted into the ranks of the SS without any vetting:
“Adolf Hitler himself was the first to admit that National Socialism and Communism had much in common. ‘There is more that binds us to Bolshevism than separates us from it,’ he once said in a revealing conversation, ‘There is, above all, revolutionary feeling…I have always made allowances for this circumstance, and given orders that former Communists are to be admitted to the party at once. The petit bourgeois Social Democrat and the trade-union boss will never be a National Socialist, but the Communist always will.’ Hitler, in this case at least, was true to his word. After he seized power, he saw to it that thousands of Communists were enrolled in the NSDAP. They were particularly effective in the Gestapo and in the SA, where they formed perhaps a third of the total membership. Indeed, there were so many of them that they were given a special name. They were known popularly as the “Beefsteak Nazi” – Brown on the outside, Red on the inside.” — Robert G. L. Waite, Vanguard of Nazism: The Free Corps Movement in Postwar Germany 1918-1923
During the course of World War II Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, Chief of the Abwehr (German military intelligence), and General Reinhard Gehlen, Chief of the German General Staff’s intelligence unit for the Soviet Union and East European countries, Foreign Armies East (FHO), independently discovered that a group supervised by Deputy Führer Martin Bormann,6 second in command of Germany, was transmitting unsupervised coded radio messages to Moscow:
“Our suspicions were largely confirmed when, independently of one another, we found out that Bormann and his group were operating an unsupervised radio transmitter network and using it to send coded messages to Moscow. When OKW monitors reported this, Canaris demanded an investigation; but word came back that Hitler himself had emphatically forbidden any intervention: he had been informed in advance by Bormann of these Funkspiele, or fake radio messages, he said, and he had approved them.”* — Reinhard Gehlen, The Service: The Memoires of General Reinhard Gehlen
The only way to ensure that fake radio messages were being sent to Moscow, and not the latest Wehrmacht movements in the Eastern theater of operations, is to have such radio messages supervised by intelligence officers vetted for counterintelligence operations. It’s one thing for Hitler to approve fake radio messages, but there’s no excuse to not have the fake radio messages supervised by experienced counterintelligence officers. To refuse to implement this critical standard operating supervisory procedure cries out treason, since even Bormann himself should have wanted to ensure none of his subordinates were transmitting sensitive information to Moscow. The fact that Hitler refused such elementary precautions informs us that Hitler & Company were Marxist agents, sabotaging the German war effort from Berlin. In fact, it was the winter of 1941-42 that Gehlen and fellow generals had assessed that the Soviet campaign was a hopeless enterprise “…not because it could not be militarily or politically won, but because of Hitler’s continued interference, which resulted in such elementary blunders that defeat was inevitable.”8
Hitler allowed Marxists to infiltrate the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and its militarized entities, yet he refused to ensure that Bormann’s subordinates weren’t transmitting Wehrmacht movements to Moscow!
Gehlen details Hitler’s sabotage of Germany’s Soviet campaign:
(1) The General Staff wanted to concentrate resources on capturing Moscow, since Moscow was the Command & Control location for Soviet forces. Hitler insisted on dissipating the effort on three fronts.
(2) The General Staff saw that the Soviets were going to entrap the Sixth Army at Stalingrad, and demanded a strategic withdrawal. Hitler vetoed this and 200,000 of Germany’s best troops were lost, including the loss of irreplaceable weaponry.
(3) To replace these losses, the General Staff wanted to recruit millions of willing volunteers from anti-Communist ranks, i.e. Russians, Ukrainians, Lithuanians etc., “After twenty years of arbitrary injustice and terror, the reestablishment of elementary human rights such as the dignity of man, liberty, justice, and the sanctity of property united every inhabitant of the Soviet empire (insofar as he was not directly working for the Moscow system) in a common readiness to support the Germans. What could be more natural for us than to exploit this readiness?”9 Hitler’s policy of treating Slavs as sub-human sabotaged any meaningful attempt in turning captured Soviet soldiers into German allies.
In fact, “It was not until after 1946, when I headed my own intelligence organization, that I had an opportunity to look into Bormann’s mysterious escape form Hitler’s Berlin bunker and his subsequent disappearance. Some time later I received conclusive proof of Bormann’s postwar movements. During the 1950s I was passed two separate reports from behind the Iron Curtain to the effect that Bormann had been a Soviet agent and had lived after the war in the Soviet Union under the cover as an advisor to the Moscow government, and has died in the meantime.” — General Reinhard Gehlen, “The Service: The Memoirs of General Reinhard Gehlen”, p. 71 (1972).
At my blog, read the articles…
‘The Marxist ‘Gender Pay Gap’ – Class Struggle Meets Gender Struggle: Females Earn More Than Their Equally Matched Male Counterparts’

Then read the article, ‘The Marxist Co-Option Of History And The Use Of The Scissors Strategy To Manipulate History Towards The Goal Of Marxist Liberation’
The West will form new political parties where candidates are vetted for Marxist ideology/blackmail, the use of the polygraph to be an important tool for such vetting. Then the West can finally liberate the globe of vanguard Communism.
Your references are the barest minimum perhaps to give your assertions the patina of authority.
“Benito Mussolini was a well known and influential Marxist before the Comintern ordered that he take up a new identity as leader of the National Fascist Party …”
Would you kindly reference this assertion? thanks.
Gehlen of course is a totally reliable source – not.
The Germans let huge numbers of Soviet POWs starve to death, if they did not just shoot them right away, until it dawned on them that they were not going to win a lightning victory. This was an army policy – they needed no encouragement from Hitler. The German army was in charge of most Red Army POWs. Gehlen is trying to whitewash the German army and the intelligence establishment of which he was a part.
Hitler, apparently this covert Marxist, ordered the attack on the USSR in the first place. A covert Marxist would have kept the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact going, not torn it up.
Nah, the fact is that Hitler was criminally stupid and expected an easy victory.
[Hitler, apparently this covert Marxist…]
Your implication is correct. He certainly wasn’t a “covert Marxist.” However, his party shared many socialist roots with the communists, which does cloak him with some Marxist tendencies.
[Nah, the fact is that Hitler was criminally stupid and expected an easy victory.]
“Expected an easy victory” obviously does not imply “criminally stupid.” Many risks are taken on the battlefield. It is intrinsic to military campaigns. Some work out, many do not. Any argument that equates a failed strategy with “criminally stupid” needs much, much stronger evidential support.
“Stronger evidential support” – In invading the USSR he tried to do what Napoleon, a military genius, could not do, got many millions of people killed and in the end shot himself when his enemy was just a couple of blocks away. Hitler brought Communism to central Europe but that was the result of folly rather than a considered policy. That is quite a bit of support for criminal stupidity. He also declared war on the USA after Pearl Harbor, enormously simplifying WW2 for Franklin Roosevelt, who was under obviously strong pressure to move against Japan but not Germany so much, Germany not being responsible for Pearl Harbor. Hitler could have said it was nothing to do with us – he obviously was no great respecter of treaties.
Yes but covert Marxists are everywhere all the time. Boris is one. So was Blair and Thatcher and Reagan. The very air we breathe has been infiltrated by Marxism. Come to my website and I’ll reveal all – when I have it up and running. Latest instalment: Hitler wrote Das Kapital.
“The Germans let huge numbers of Soviet POWs starve to death, if they did not just shoot them right away…”
Once again (and how did you miss it?):
(3)To replace these losses, the General Staff wanted to recruit millions of willing volunteers from anti-Communist ranks, i.e. Russians, Ukrainians, Lithuanians etc., “After twenty years of arbitrary injustice and terror, the reestablishment of elementary human rights such as the dignity of man, liberty, justice, and the sanctity of property united every inhabitant of the Soviet empire (insofar as he was not directly working for the Moscow system) in a common readiness to support the Germans. What could be more natural for us than to exploit this readiness?”9 Hitler’s policy of treating Slavs as sub-human sabotaged any meaningful attempt in turning captured Soviet soldiers into German allies.
[Adolf Hitler himself was the first to admit that National Socialism and Communism had much in common.]
And that also helps explain why they became such bitter “enemies.” They were targeting the same type of voter.
No they weren’t. The NSDAP broke through from marginal party status in 1930 – taking 18% of the vote – by taking large numbers of votes from parties like the DNVP and the DVP. These were conservative nationalist parties, the former led by Hugenburg, a press magnate somewhat like a German Rupert Murdoch. Their vote was lower middle class for the most part. The working class part of the Nazi vote grew in 1932 but tended to be found in smaller towns where there was less rival organisation by the SPD or the Communists. The Nazi vote was large but also diverse and for that reason potentially unstable as they were trying to appeal to different sectors of society.
One SPD poster attacking the Nazis in c.1930 depicted them as overgrown university students, with student fraternity caps and sabre scars. The NSDAP was very popular among university students, many of whom were forced to break off their studies after the Depression hit or who were unable to gain civil service or academic employment. The NSDAP also tried to win support from shopkeepers – its propaganda raged at department stores, and this was only partly because department stores were sometimes owned by Jews – the Nazi clientele of small business people felt threatened by competition from such stores. The left-wing parties made no particular attempt to win support among students – considered “bourgeois” – or among the lower middle class – considered petty bourgeois.
In short, the Nazis tried to win working class support, but key areas of their own support were not the industrial working class and even inimical to it.
Correct. I would only add that DNVP and the DVP leadership staunchly anti-communist politics made them in this narrow field indistinguishable from NSDAP and hence appeal of Hitler’s anti communist rants spewing fear of immediate communist revolution resonated among Christians in Germany and abroad where Christian parties turn proto-fascist and antiSemite mostly because they associated communists with Jewish conspiracy as some from communist leadership were secular Jews.
Support for ideology of fascism and Harassment of Jewish students and faculty happened not only in German Universities (Heidegger) but in Poland before 1939 and Hungary, Slovakia and other running proto- fascist regimes during WWII.
It is true that Hitler fashioned NSDAP as workers party as his political career started in, reactionary to creation of KPD by Luxemburg and Liebknecht in 1918, German Workers Party instrumental in suppression of Bavarian Soviet Republic in 1923, but did not gain any substantial support before1933 as workers were appalling by NSDAP political gangsterism, [at that time original Antifa was created to defend KPD, trade unions assets and political leadership from Nazi gangs].
they were split and dissolutioned with SPD (leading member of Second International turned bourgeois liberal) rule of Weimar Republic in 1920s only starting to unite and support KPD when on Stalin orders KPD rejected original revolutionary path of Luxemburg Spartacist revolt for electoral path to.. democratic socialism just when Great Depression hit Germany creating excellent revolutionary conditions.
it is true that large chunks of working class were supportive of Hitler Initial social and economic policies after 1933 that lifted country from depression, but only after Brutal crackdown on KPD, trade unions and all opposition by means of violence and coercion and mass intimidation by Nazi state. However, they never trusted Hitler as caring about interests of working class instead of interest of German oligarchy and landed aristocracy that thrived under Nazi rule despite Nazi mantra of national unity for collective national interests.
Horkheimer and Adorno were wrong in seeking explanation for supposed German workers support for Hitler racist and discriminatory policies in pathological mass psychology of working class and corrupted conscience and class consciousness instead of overwhelming power of state coercion enforced by propaganda and brutality recognized in Nuremberg trials.
COVID sham is mild reminder of similar situation of brutal state coercion and political infantilization of working class as supposedly unable to take care of themselves without elite’s wisdom.
The Frankfurt School rendered working class a Socialist revolutionary failure, even inherently racist, a threat to democracy and in fact a danger to population at large feeding Into ideas of Open Society of Karl Popper and his student George Soros of denying working class self determination and self emancipation from wise men of ruling class.
What is not broadly known that first prisoners of first Nazi concentration camp Dachau open in 1933 were communists, other opposition, Jewish or not, before Jews, Gypsies, gays and other nations were sent there.
It was first of all a political camp, a form of political quarantine and re-education camp aimed at instilling proper adjustment to new normal, turned death camp. Other European countries joined Nazi anti communist crusade also by building political concentration camps like Bereza Kartuska established In Poland in 1934. In fact even Stalin joined in by eviscerating, murdering leadership of European communist parties among others in Infamous Moscow Trials. There is hardly any evidence of Hitler and European protofascists going easy on communists in their countries.
Despite of cases of opportunism or betrayal of workers by lapsed communists under duress of state extortion supporting or joining NSDAP and their discriminative social policies and military expansionism, there was no convergence of communist goals, politics and policies in Germany with those of NSDAP, as it is sometimes suggested perhaps wrongly interpreting later 1939 pact R-M as supposedly resulting from infiltration of NSDAP and Nazi state by Soviet communists and not affinity and common narrow political interests of two totalitarian regimes seeking mutual support. Hitler needed natural resources mostly oil while Stalin wanted Nazi financing and technology for purpose of military defense against the west. Ideology and working class interests did not play any role in Hitler Stalin off and on and off relations.
Thanks, Waldorf and Kalen!
Not surprising that DMJ has no rebuttal.
”The fact that Hitler refused such elementary precautions informs us that Hitler & Company were Marxist agents, sabotaging the German war effort from Berlin.”
Give me a break with your CIA funded blame everything on socialism diatribe, you f**K idiot. Your only f**king hope is democracy and socialism you Nazi psychopath.
“Give me a break with your CIA funded blame everything on socialism diatribe…”
In 1975 the CIA’s CounterIntelligence Staff (CI) chief, James Angleton,
was fired along with the purge of 80% of his CI Staff, cementing the Marxist control of the CIA, explaining how in 1980 Marxist John Brennan was accepted
into the agency, even though he told his polygraph examiner that he
voted for CPUSA candidate, Gus Hall, for change.
“Trust but VERIFY” – President Ronald Reagan’s watch phrase when dealing with the USSR…
(1) The West conspired to not VERIFY the ‘collapse’ of the USSR, even though the survival of the West depended on verification should the ‘collapse’ be a ruse, which proves (1) there was no ‘collapse’ of the USSR, because if there had been a ‘collapse’ the West would have immediately VERIFIED the ‘collapse’; and (2) the West’s institutions were co-opted by Marxists, explaining the West’s enabling of the fake ‘collapse’ of the USSR…quod erat demonstrandum.
(2) Throughout the 1980s the West conspired to regurgitate Soviet Bloc under counting of communist party membership numbers in order to facilitate the canard of imploding Soviet Bloc political establishments, explaining the West’s enabling of the fake ‘collapse’ of the USSR…quod erat demonstrandum.
(3) Before any religious sectarian strife in Yugoslavia (1991 – 2001) first there would have been massive reprisals against the reviled Communists who implemented draconian discriminatory policies to wipe out religion in Yugoslavia. LCY anti-religious discriminatory policies were so effective that within fifty years those who were without a religion increased by an astronomical 3,100%! The fact that no reprisals took place against LCY members proves that the ‘religious strife’ and ‘breakup’ of Yugoslavia was manufactured and controlled by the Communists.
(4) The World War I Allies never did immediately send a naval expedition to Petrograd to easily topple Lenin & Bolshevik’s November 7, 1917 coup, thereby promptly returning Russia to the war, Russia’s involvement in the war being a critical variable for the Allies’ victory strategy against the Central Powers, proving (a) that the Allies knew they were going to win the war; (b) that the war was set up to (i) weaken the West’s influence in the world; (ii) weaken the West’s people’s confidence in their institutions and what those institutions stood for; and (c) one objective of the war was to settle into power the first above board Marxist state, with more to follow. In fact, there already was an anti-Marxist force in Russia at the time that if ordered would have conquered all of Bolshevik Russia during this period when the Bolsheviks were very weak. The unit was the 60,000 strong Czechoslovak Legion (soon to be 100,000 strong) but instead of sending the legion 700 miles north to Petrograd, the Allies sent it on a 6,000 mile odyssey across Russia to Vladivostok for evacuation to Europe(!), once again proving the Allies knew they were going to win the war…that the war was a Marxist operation.*
(5) “On the initiative of the KGB, an army of Soviet vigilantes five million strong, the so-called ‘druzhiny’, was recruited from among the Komsomol activists. Their units were led by retired Chekists. They have been patrolling and policing the streets of all the Soviet cities. Their primary task has been to prepare the Soviet people to ‘behave’ during the forthcoming ‘liberalisation’.” – KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn, ‘The Perestroika Deception‘, March 1989, pp. 14-15.
(6) Leningrad Oblast (Province) is still named Leningrad Oblast! Engels City is still named Engels City! Engels Air Force Base is still named Engels Air Force Base! Russian military personnel still refer to each other as “Comrade”! Kaliningrad Oblast is still named Kaliningrad Oblast! The State Emblem of the Soviet Union is atop the Duma building, and illuminated at night for clear viewing! Soviet Red Stars are still attached to the bows of Russian naval ships! The Hammer & Sickle logo is still on Aeroflot commercial aircraft! Not one statue to Lenin has been destroyed in Russia, where out of the 3,000 still standing throughout Russia, only a handful have been carefully taken down (in locations where tourists frequent) and hidden away in parks and museums, the remainder of these monstrosities to Russian nationalism/Russian Orthodox Church rubbing historical salt into still open wounds of Russian nationalists! The Russian ‘electorate’ are only ‘electing’ for president Soviet era communist party member Quislings, who persecuted the 85% of the religious population held captive by the Communist Party during the ‘Soviet era’!
Got it now?
* Even more telling is neutral Denmark’s laying mines off its coastal waters in international waterways in August, 1914 [thereby violating the 1857 treaty opening the Danish Straits to all shipping, where, “No ship of any kind may, under any pretext whatsoever, be subjected to detention or obstruction at the passage of the Sound or the Belts”] at the prompting of Germany (Germany too lays mines in the Danish Straits) and Great Britain does nothing! Not a word from the Allies (and the usual deafening silence from the Marxist co-opted press), in fact, even though access to the Baltic Sea is critical for the Allies to roll up Germany quickly by (a) closing the Baltic Sea to all German surface/subsurface vessels; (b) denying German access to trade with Sweden; (c) bringing the Royal Navy and the Imperial Russian Navy together; (d) forcing Germany to relocate critically needed infantry divisions and heavy armaments away from the Western Front for the new Baltic Front; (e) allowing British and Russian troop landings across the Baltic coasts, preventing German forces from moving eastwards towards Russia; thereby (f) knocking Germany out of the war before one shot is fire

That the CIA and the US military have always been involved in Hollywood as a medium that glorifies their values and as a recruitment tool is not new. What is new though is that Hollywood is becoming an extension of the British film industry or the British film industry is becoming an extension of Hollywood, depending on your point of view. Moreover the British films (with Hollywood money) being made are set in an idealised 1930s-era past that romanticises aspects of British history (but often with current “woke” identity-politics values). In addition Hollywood is poaching directors and actors from other countries at a rate that must be unprecedented.
Not many young Americans these days are coming into Hollywood with backgrounds in independent film, whether as actors, writers or directors. Young black Americans in particular, unless they come from the commercial music industry or a sports background, and not straight out of theatre or acting school, seem scarce. What roles for black people exist in Hollywood films seem to go to British or Nigerian actors. The film directors being celebrated in Hollywood these days are foreign film directors from countries like Mexico (over the last decade, 8 out of 10 Academy Awards for Best Film Directors went to foreign directors, and the bulk of these went to three Mexican directors).
A full length motion picture is being done on “The Port Arthur Massacre”. Propaganda 101 will again be unleashed on Australian audiences. Generational brainwashing is what i like to call it.
This crisis or putsch requires an even broader canvas, though I found useful the linked article from Jacob Levich who connects many of the interests behind this power grab :
“Global health governance” makes a perfect stalking horse for a cybernetic surveillance state enforced, at first by analog military force, later by ‘immunity passports’ and social credit scores.
It’s also a cover for a revitalized imperialism… driven by lust for the rare earth minerals in developing countries. The current focus is on the Sahel a long strip of territory across Africa at its widest point. This region has already seen the sponsored terrorism of Hutu upon Tutsi (or the other way around) and the installation of a compliant (former) warlord, Paul Kagame. Not surprisingly, Platts reports:
For the second time in its history, Africa may get to finance the West’s next stage of industrial development. Its mineral wealth is the Golden Egg on which the military and big tech are focused. In the same article Platts states:
Younger readers won’t recall the sixties and seventies when the liberal left championed these countries as they raised themselves up in the post-colonial era, with varying degrees of success. Nationalist leaders defined sustainability as self-sufficiency. Taking Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser as their model, new leaders thrust to the fore such as Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, and new nations emerged like Zimbabwe, while others such as Ethiopia yearned for the days of autonomy and territorial integrity.
If you want to know what how West worked to undermine them in those days, a good eye-opener is Frank Terpil: Confessions of a Dangerous Man — a documentary from a television in a different age.
The West redoubled its pushback in Central America and the Caribbean, which became a testing-ground for military adventures disguised as “humanitarian intervention” or Responsibility 2 Protect, starting with Grenada in 1983, Panama 1989, to Yugoslavia 1999, Iraq 2003 and then Libya 2011.
But, hey, when neo-liberals do imperialism it’s okay, right? As Elon Musk said after the coup in Lithium-rich Bolivia: “We Will Coup Whoever We Want”.
The author furiously masturbating as he reels off quote after quote, passage after passage, some relevant, some not, but all designed to say ‘Love me, for I am learned’. What has he added to anything? He told me that shit is bad and hollywood is corrupt. Cool. He was so lost in onanistic pleasure he forgot to make a point. Still at least he didn’t shoehorn in anything about “The animated film Hakkebakkeskogen” this time, so I guess its progress.
This is so fucking depressing. It’s like watching those bits of footage where the cops set about beating someone for demonstrating and all the crowd gather to chant ‘shame on you’ at the cops, like the cops give a shit. One of the crowd will invariably try to ‘talk sense’ at a thug in black for no apparent reason before shuffling off defeated as the cop ignores him. Then the crowd all go home and congratulate themselves that they ‘stuck it to the man’.
Net result – Anger dissipated, self congratulations, boiling point averted and the state rolls on.
Well, this is better than the dumb acquiescence of a huge number of people.
However, I am reminded of May Day 2002, Trafalgar Square, London. Police arrested someone, I think he was some kind of anarchist. It was the first May Day after a certain New York event and the police were deliberately heavier than they had been the previous year. His mates were surrounding the cops, bellowing at them. One cop, a large chap, waved his truncheon around and roared, “F&ck off!”
Half an hour later the demo broke up, I walked past a nearby side street with a pub and the same people were drinking outside it and I caught the smell of weed. The same cops were watching them at a distance, including Big Bastard, but the atmosphere was relaxed. They appeared to have forgotten about their arrested friend.

It could’ve used a little tightening-up of some of its meanderings, but yes, the best summary on Da Covid™ Situation I’ve seen, as well.
This is just a great interview with Denis Rancourt- his most recent:
By FDA ruling No test administrated in commercial setting can determine infection status and hence cannot diagnose COVID disease without licensed doctor‘s direct examination.Therefore, no one can be forcefully committed to quarantine or movement restricted based on test alone.
That fact was acknowledged by UA that mentions not tests but diagnoses In their policy.
