Yup, OffG, you are now, officialy an uh….. conspiracy tinfoil hat site, and that is because of the WHO witch we all know never contradicts them selfs, nor lies, forge or fake anything, and the case is about witch you already have written about, Tha Death numbers.
Of course, its about With or Without, since falling from an high rise building etc can be counted in some nations and states in the imperial banana republic as dying from Corona, and the same number jive its in the Pirate Isle formerly known as Britain, where they have enlightened us all with narratives witch have been countered with what they claim is based upon completely unreliable narratives because it contradicts their “thru and nothing but truth, just as Handoncock” when others is so “domestical terroristic white ass supremacy and all that jazz” to come up with Facts, Truths and Shit like that, witch in this days of the dawn of our new Post Truth Millenia is seen as an threat, and of course its our fault, that the inqusition had to take messurments to fight of this demons plauge, and where Science finaly have shown that they are, totaly useless and have managed to drag their crdibility far belove any used car saleman/woman/that/hens/ugh… to be political corret incase somebody spontaniously selfignited by been offended.

And on top of it, I dont expect the same rag to print the fact that even the Chines admits they dont have anything substancial, nor image, etc of whatever drivel we have been served to back their claim about Corona, witch again have been the norm thruout this scamdemic, but I give the Chines the credit of been honest, that, is what makes me respect them, at best.
The CONvid 19-ad infinitum is 100% fake.

Otherwise, Corbett, never disapoints.

After being told that my mother in law will get her vax, my darling wife went on to tell me I’m being selfish to refuse!

So, I phoned up my own mother who told me she was getting her vax on Friday. I asked her if she was asked and she seemed vague about it. She noted that she had a phone call that said she had an appointment and got to talking with “the nice lady”. I’m guessing she must have been asked because they are duty bound to. But, as I’m sure has happened with the vast majority (and certainly the vast majority of nice old dears like my mum), the recipient would not have even considered refusing. Which I think is why my mum couldn’t even be sure if she was asked. Thus, does the scam work. Months of terror conditioning makes the question redundant. And if you start to raise doubts, as I did, you will be met with incomprehension or, in my case, a lecture on psychology and how I was “just rebelling”.

As for my wife, I lost my temper and asked if she really thought this fucking syringe shit would “save my life” or indeed “save anyone’s life”. She didn’t respond – although I admit I was ranting by that time. My point is that the only reason the vast majority take this sludge into their veins is because they really don’t think they have a choice. If they want to keep their jobs and their social network etc. then they have to submit. And of course, the irony is that even taking the poison will not guarantee anything anyway. As the lords and masters have actually made clear.

My wife was phoned up by her doctor’s surgery and asked if she wanted the vaccine. She said no thanks, not for now (implying that she would wait for now, and let someone else, perhaps more in need, have it). The person at the other end seemed quite pleased/relieved, which suggested to us that they thought they might not have enough to go around.

I happen to be with a different practice, and they haven’t contacted me yet, by phone or letter. Which is absolutely fine by me.

I believe there is a real supply problem looming in the UK. They’ve now “vaccinated” over 7 million with 8 million more to go to hit the Government target by Feb 15. Of course, if they miss, it won’t be their fault !
I note that in the last few days, myself and a number of my family/friends who have recently been “diagnosed with Covid” and quarantined (I only had a test as it was a condition of an impending medical procedure) have received texts/emails suggesting we might like to donate plasma. Might this be injected in lieu of the vaccine should there be supply problems ?
Has anyone noted the uptick in deaths since the vaccine was introduced ? As always, it’s there in plain sight in the ONS/PHE/NHS data. No doubt still being logged as Covid death within 28 days.

Amen! albeit a mournful one.

My usual anecdotal corroboration: I know two people in very different circumstances. X. (in Europe) is an expatriate who is occasionally required to travel in the EU and abroad in the course of his work, or to visit his native land. Y. (in the US) has a spouse with advanced MS in a care facility.

Both are informed vaccine skeptics who are repelled by the prospect of submitting to the sludge-syringes– on principle, but with a fatal “all things being equal” twist. 

Both face the dreadful prospect of a “moment of truth”: for X., refusing (prospective) mandatory vaccination as a condition of travel would amount to perpetual isolation in his residence, not to mention impossibly complicating his work situation. Y. dreads the prospect of the care facility requiring that all visitors be vaccinated as part of a “reopen” strategy.

They’re both in limbo now– because the care facility hasn’t permitted visitors since last March, Y. hasn’t been allowed to visit her spouse anyway. X. has no pressing or urgent need to travel.

But they both indicate that if their respective moments of truth come to pass, they feel that they’ll have no choice but to submit to the jab.

Personally, from the first I had a problem with the common observation that the authorities can’t, or probably won’t, attempt to impose universal mandatory vaccination– instead, there will be a government/commerce (i.e. public/private) web of restrictions imposed upon vaccine-resisters. My problem isn’t the observation, which is straightforward enough; it’s the shallow, fatuous distinction that anything short of a draconian universal mandate isn’t “really” the same as forcing people to get vaxxed.

Of course this comprehensive net of “lesser measures” and contrived, phony “options” is as coercive as a flat-out mandate. Despite the coy rationale that pretends to preserve “free choice”, the “choice” is at best a fig leaf. For X. and Y., their “right” and desire to not be jabbed is nullified by a policy that is exactly like the Mafia tradition of “making an offer that can’t be refused”.

I sympathize with your domestic resistance; hang tough!

Lenin said, “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen”. The past 10 months have been like a century or more in change. Now borders closed down, the entire planetary network negated, a handful of gangster pharmaceutical companies now commandeer all news channels, the entire profile of human interaction has receded by perhaps a millennium – all the way back to medieval serfdom, the reversal of enlightenment, the ushering in of a new dark age.

These are still early days. And it is clear we are in for the long haul now. Now that the vax programme is underway, and I have experienced already a bit of friction between those who do and those who don’t, this friction will be exacerbated by the media – all “in the best possible taste” of course i.e. no outright denunciations but “objective” reporting on the vaxxed being disgruntled at the unvaxxed with sly little moralistic noises along the lines of “Well what did these refusers expect?” and “It serves them right!” because after all we are in a dangerous and possibly species threatening situation etc. At this point the Left will come in with a view about “the bourgeois self-obsessed with his own health at the expense of all others” etc. 

This followed by increasingly acrimonious exchanges which will be presented as fights between the “frightened responsible” vaxxed and the “crazies” with their “conspiratorial delusions” linking in to the Extreme Right and the hangers on from the neoliberal failure etc.

I have been speaking to a colleague who previously made suspicious noises about this virus bull and who had previously also said she wasn’t happy about the vax. Her son and daughter have no intention of taking the vax. They have advised her not to but her doctor has recommended that she does since – and here comes the bit that always amuses me – she is in a “high risk” group. This means that, owing to health issues, they are at exceptional risk form the big nasty baddy baddy. Which is deeply ironic – because what they are really at risk from is the vax. Orwellian reversal – we must protect our vulnerable by …vaxxing them? (The ones being given priority are the very last ones who ought to take it!)

Anyway she is disappointingly going along with the doc although I suspect it’s more to do with the fact that our boss made a none too subtle threat about our job prospects: “Oh you have complete freedom of choice with the vax BUT just remember that if you don’t take it, these mums and dads may not want you working with their dearest etc.”

Thus, proving my previous suspicions correct i.e. that the big plan has been to whip up the peasants with this superstitious crap and then let them sort out the dissenters. (And, believe me, I know exactly the sort of excitable moron who will leap around in panic to protect everyone from the “unclean” i.e. unvaccinated.)

My colleague continued to disappoint with noises about how “we will all have to get used to this new reality with the virus and its strains” etc. Astonishingly she knew about “The Great Reset” but didn’t seem capable of making the obvious connections. Though I did my best with reference to the miraculous powers of premonition demonstrated all the way back in March.

Still – let’s be optimistic: her children seem to be on the ball. Here’s to the young ones. They haven’t swallowed the carefully indoctrinating bullshit of their elders.

That damned jab does not protect me from giving it to others! That is the point I keep coming back to over and over and over again, and I’m not a believer in the great Black Death trope that our owners have unleashed either. But my God, the idiocy of shaming other people for not taking a shot that does NOTHING to “protect others” is something I just cannot let go of. I know, ranting to the chorus here but that drives me absolutely nutty and at least here I am “safe” venting it! For something with a 2% “fatality rate” even using their fake ass numbers. One woman at work made some remark about a “70% survival rate” and I damned near lost it with her. And by “lost it” meaning I almost went full “conspiracy theorist selfish” to tell her what I really think. Even IF I dared do that, would it sink in? Doubtful.

I’d have to give James 5 stars for telling it like it “was”. But what it Was continues to be what Is… As Shakespeare quoted: “Therein lies the rub” …

I witnessed the whole NASA moon-shot series as the tale unfolded. However, my “view” of reality was completely massaged by television broadcast. Did we go to the moon? Erm…

This thought-provoking commentary suggests that nearly everything we’ve believed these last 50 years is little more than public adherence to projected film illusions. Perhaps we have become fragmented scenes in a televised world.

I believed the moon landings were real for 30 years. I saw it live on TV when I was 15 years old. When I was 45, and had kids, and had been playing about with video, and went to see a band, who did a cover of The Police “Walking on The Moon” with a video projection behind, I had my mouth wide open. This can’t be right. I knew about 1/6th gravity on the moon, but the video just looked as if it had been slowed down a bit. The astronauts weren’t jumping high enough. In fack in 1/6th g they would find it hard to stay on the ground without shuffling their feet in the moondust.

No one believed me then. No one believed me on 9/11. No one believes me now, and for some reason I don’t understand Off-Guardian has banned me.

I do not read emails. Its a kind of self protection. If you want to say anything to me say it publically, where there are witnesses.

Hello Tony: Like nearly everyone in my age group, I totally bought the whole moon landing scene. The only thing I questioned at the time was the (renamed) Apollo 1 fire of February 1967. Even though I was young, I couldn’t believe these “rocket scientists” were dumb enough to supply a 100% oxygen source in the crew’s command module. !00% oxygen and lots of electronics and flammable plastics makes for flammable disaster…

I never believed the media’s representation of 9/11. I lost friends and the support of family members, by insisting they consider the simple rules of metallurgy and physics. They began to treat me like I was a leper. No loss I guess…

Good to know you’re observant. We need more people with observational skills…

I still have a fairly open mind, although some things about the flights / landings don’t seem to quite add up.

However, as my career, such as it is, has been in IT, I was always interested in the stories about how powerless the onboard computer system(s) were, compared of course, to what we have today, and wondered how they could possibly have worked.

However, this article puts it into perspective:

Having read that I am now prepared to believe that the computing power they had was approppriate for the job, although it’s still hard to believe they could do it all in 2K.

YOU CAN ADD LAST NIGHT FULL MOON MERCURY PERFORMANCE TO THE ABOVE

Boris Johnson has been taking acting lessons, judging by his performance at yesterday’s Downing Street Covid briefing. Angst-ridden, grief-stricken, hand-wringing, it was a masterful performance by the Prime Minister. He was there to discuss the news that the UK has allegedly registered more than 100,000 Covid deaths, the first European country to reach that landmark. A dreadful business.

Johnson said that he took “full responsibility” for the government’s actions, saying: “We truly did everything we could. I’m deeply sorry for every life lost.” He went on to say that it was “hard to compute the sorrow contained in this grim statistic” and reserved his “deepest condolences” for those who had lost loved ones, including “fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, and the many grandparents who’ve been taken”. It was gripping.
Except that it is monumental bollocks of course. It’s not so much a Whopper as it is a Double Whooper with bacon and cheese, onion rings and an extra large Coke. It’s pure undiluted bullshit. Why are so many falling for it? I can only conclude that goldfish have longer memories than the average UK citizen. Remember, the government counts a coronavirus death, if someone dies within 28 days of testing positive.

Last Summer, Oxford University revealed that as many as one third of recorded coronavirus deaths, were people who died of “primarily other conditions.” This meant that for example victims of heart attack, stroke, brain haemorrhage, murder and traffic accidents were added to the Covid death toll if they had previously tested positive for the virus. And wait for it, Oxford found that this wasn’t just the case if they’d died within 28 days of the positive test. If someone tested positive last April and then got hit by a bus in July, they were listed as having died “with coronavirus” and added to the statistics.

Early last year, The World Health Organisation strongly advised that even if coronavirus appeared on the death certificate as a “significant condition”, the death should NOT be included in the figures. WHO guidelines state that such deaths “are NOT due to Covid-19 and should not be classified as such.” Last September Dr Jason Oke, from the Centre of Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford, told The Telegraph that many people had been dying “with” coronavirus but NOT “from” it. He issued a warning that the over-counting would get worse as more and more people contracted coronavirus. How prophetic of him.

Ten days ago the WHO advised that when any asymptomatic person tests positive after a PCR test, they should be retested. The WHO is very concerned at the false positive rate. It also warned testers not to amplify the swab samples too many times. The official advice is not to cycle more than 30 times. The NHS threshold is 40. The PCR test is not fit for purpose. It is preposterous to claim that more than 100,000 people have lost their lives to Coronavirus. There is absolutely no evidence to support such a claim. The real number is far far lower. Let’s call it what it is, fraud. This is not poor science or bad policy, it is fraud.

Every newsroom in the country is in possession of the information I have discussed here. If only they’d use it they could put an end to this tyranny in a matter of hours. I’m not holding my breath though.

A dear friend had one of the vaccinations this week. She’s fit, healthy. In her 40s. She was really ill for a day and a night with “flu symptoms, shivering, then burning, and up weeing all night”. Must have done a real number on the kidneys and goodness knows what else. For what? 🙁
Here in the village (Wales) there are mutters about just *holding on until Easter then it might all be over*, this even amongst the teetering semi-conscious ones. I blessedly don’t have any exposure at all to the telly, but would bet that is where it’s coming from. Rot and poison.
On a positive note, I’m still finding ways to connect with other real people locally and that brings me a lot of hope.

As ever James Corbett is a pleasure to watch, his dry sardonic wit is delivered with a panache and articulation rarely found anywhere and hardly ever in MSM. This year has provided a huge swamp of mud-sucking gunge from which to select the winners. Long live the award ceremony.

As to the so-called fact-checkers they are everywhere. When I share a post from FB it now says something like “This article contains the word ‘vaccine’ or ‘COVID-19’ or ‘SARS-COB-2′” with an option to “Continue” the only one I’ve ever clicked.

My last two articles have uncovered the misdoings of fact-checkers. My latest concerns the vaccination – on video – of nurse Tiffany Dover, who it appears is dead. But according to fact-checkers she is still alive. The fact-checking articles go back to late December last year and nothing has been heard from them since except the removal of a certain link, by all of them, from their fact-checks.

Very telling that the hospital deleted its own video “proof” — featuring a different nurse standing in for Tiffany (eyes, nose, brow, neck, parting). This can be confirmed since we know the fellow nurse. See links here: https://off-guardian.org/2020/12/30/watch-the-future-of-vaccines/#comment-296152

But she’s about due for the follow up jab (the first was on Dec 17) so I’m confident the hospital will seize the opportunity to trumpet its safety.

Tiffany’s collapse was not due to needle fright. She crumpled 17 minutes after the jab — plenty of time to have overcome dizziness, had a sweetened coffee and patted herself on the back for her bravery.

Meanwhile her social media accounts have disappeared, along with those of her family. The fact checkers bleat on with no facts… and no Tiffany.

Yes, the artist is quite right. Even with the mask on the two nurses look so different in so many ways. There are similarities, hair (but not parting), they both have noses and ears (when visible) and though you cannot see what’s beneath the masks there is enough above to determine that these two women are not the same.

The Left angle on COVID (based on the notion that the lockdown/ reset = socialism/ communism) has appeared so frequently that I an convinced it’s a psy-op. And indeed a foundational part of the COVID con – perhaps even THE foundational part.

The WSWS stands as the most obvious example. This “Trotskyite” organisation has been one of the most ferocious COVID cheerleaders since the beginning. One of the biggest giveaways as to their lack of critical faculty was the time they embraced a UK scare story about an entire children’s ward riddled with the virus, a story so baseless that even the mainstream media dropped it.

Many of the biggest neo-con bullshitters were part of the “Trotskyite” movement and that is just a little glimpse into how thoroughly the Marxist Left have been absorbed into the Western propaganda system. Any major Lrftist organisation with considerable financial backing has either been infiltrated by spooks or was a spook operation from the start.

So Operation Virus has been in the pipeline for decades, all the controlled opposition just waiting to be given the nod. The truly depressing thing is how eagerly the Left minions followed the spook directors and jumped on the covid bandwagon. I reckon that, even though these minions are all genuine in their support for socialism, they have been rendered moronic by conspiracy phobia (another plank in the propaganda system).

I am convinced it’s a psy-op.

really, what was your first clue?

less sarcastically, I think we now have to seriously consider the possibility that, as you suggest, the entire apparent “left”, at least in Europe and North America, is a colossal psy-op, decades in the making. like their idol Chomsky, they are allowed to complain about the lesser crimes of the ruling class, so as to enhance their credibility with the target audience when their support is needed to sell a really massive, world-historic hoax, the premier examples being 9-11-2001 and COVID-1984, with JFK-63 being an early strategic experiment.

without the impassioned performance of the fascist-scumbag “left”, these essential pretexts for the entire ruling-class program for the 21st century would have never got off the ground. a job well done, let’s hope that some of them were paid commensurate with the magnitude of their achievement.

Many of the biggest neo-con bullshitters were part of the “Trotskyite” movement and that is just a little glimpse into how thoroughly the Marxist Left have been absorbed into the Western propaganda system.

a rather large clue as to the explanation for this strange phenomenon may be inferred by considering the ethnic origin of most of the prominent trotskyist-neocons.

JFK was a turning point – the beginning of an Orwellian recasting of language whereby the word “conspiracy” was ceaselessly demeaned and effectively removed altogether as a serious concept. The Left were particularly targeted for this neutering of critique. Indeed, I think “conspiratorial thinking” was positively encouraged on the Right to smear such thinking even more forcefully on the Left.

With COVID the Left simulacrum has leapt to the centre although still with an air of “dissent”, the notion projected being that all those protest groups over the decades (most of them controlled opposition anyway) have finally forced the governments to “become responsible”. Yes it’s an embarrassingly naive notion. But they’re shovelling it out anyway.

And so the “COVID war” has been spun as a Left wing thing with the Right grinding out the invective against a “Hard Left” takeover which, of course, only serves to drive the Left further into COVID worship.

Clever.

I am far from solely blaming people for their supposedly mindless submission to government and corporate orders. This is not to say that many deliberately choose submission to power or authority in pursuits of their own advancement, careers or extra benefits. Scientific, economic political elite is a blatant example of that.

But for most people it is simple math to follow.

Try to tell minimum wage worker getting one year of tripling his miserable salary in unemployment benefits under COVID emergency that all that is a deliberate tragic charade resulting in murder of elderly and vulnerable.

It would make him first defender of COVID sham including flawed but free testing and free but untested potentially dangerous vaccines a threat discounted as not grater risk than he takes just living economically unstable, with no affordable medical access, precarious life of working poor. He sees tangible benefit, triple income he always deserved but never got, with no need for hard work. For him it is rational, it is simple.

What COVID operation really does to society he does not want to know or care if it is extremely detrimental and shortsighted even suicidal helping ruling oligarchs digging people’s economic grave. Today is what counts under capitalist social system.

He sees immediate opportunity for himself to survive today better and is conditioned by capitalist propaganda to take it, opportunity of better pay he and his family never had before blind to destruction of his own future by submission to COVID psyop. His choice is no longer free as it is 100% dictated by immediate benefit under threat of death of phantom disease, “opportunity” provided by government exactly to maintain lying COVID narratives and suppress protests against destruction of constitutional and human rights.

Many Americans do not know that there is legal term called state or power coercion (also related to private organizations coercing people’s submission) and that powerful ubiquitous state coercion exists and expresses itself in nominally autocratic and democratic political system in the same way as creating conditions of impossibility of free choice without explicitly or implicitly negative consequences to individuals or groups including restrictions on movement and access, eligibility for services including education or membership in certain social groups or general consequences related to political social and economic standing precluding certain careers and pursuits. All that backed up with threat of violence or imprisonment or death as enemy of people.

One day, soon stimulus money will run out or will be worthless and millions pauperized, evicted or foreclosed will stop ignoring reality of devastation of their livelihoods, throw away face musks, hug one another on the streets and declare COVID a sham as desperate people who have nothing to lose, However, by that time COVID mission impossible will be accomplished neo feudal despotism will reign supreme, democratic facade shedded.

Time for revolution is now.

In the real news awards, this takes some beating and Brits should be getting very edgy about The Covert Human Intelligence Sources Bill ……….”a bill that would enable the government to authorise undercover agents to commit crimes – up to and including murder, torture and sexual assault – right here, in the UK.

The Covert Human Intelligence Sources Bill gives vast powers not only to the security agencies but also to a questionable collection of public bodies. There are no real limits, weak safeguards and inadequate oversight.

The Bill has no limits on the types of crime that could be authorised. Murder, torture – it is all on the table as written. Nor is there any independent approval of a decision to authorise a crime – or even a requirement for police or prosecutors to be informed about it at all. It is concerning that the Bill allows crimes to be authorised not only in the interests of national security, but also on the disconcertingly vague grounds that they are “in the interests of the economic wellbeing of the United Kingdom.

With the greatest respect to the staff of the Food Standards Agency, however, if we are allowing meat inspectors to commit murder than something has gone seriously awry.”

This article was written when it was in the Commons. They voted FOR it. Labour abstained, some Labour members voted against it, defying Stooge Starmer, and lost their jobs. No coverage from OffG about another MASSIVELY important topic. This is as Orwellian/Nazi as it gets. It also enables the state to use children as spies against their parents. The Lords (a disease in their own right) are now going through this and this could become enshrined in law very soon.

I second your thanks. This drives me crazy too. “Communist” and “socialist” are used when “totalitarian autocracy” is meant. In the US, many well-meaning “pandemic” critics are old-school conservatives, e.g. libertarian conservatives and “liberal” conservatives once called “Rockefeller Republicans”.

Naturally, they indeed equate socialism and communism with totalitarian autocracy, aka fascism. They surely harbor the conviction that this is a valid equivalence, since in their view socialist or communist states are inherently and inevitably totalitarian autocracies. There are also comments from, say, emigrants or refugees from Cuba that reinforce this muddled perception.

One egregious flaw in their perception is that they lump in Hitler’s Germany with Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba, etc. Of course, they may square this circle by professing the canard that the Nazis were indeed another species of, pardon the term, virulent “socialists”.

I don’t know if you’re familiar with satirist JP Sears, a 39 year-old comedian, social critic who’s produced a string of scathing and/or funny critiques of the scamdemic. He too equates the lockdown regime and other draconian aspects of the scamdemic with living under “communism”. It gives me the fantods.

I watched more of his videos and he is quite talented.

You can watch his awareness and concern about the totalitarian autocracy grow from April on. Not commenting on it too too much during the summer, but then more and more.

Then he got censured on youtube – on which he has a huge following – and maybe on facebook, also – and the gloves came off.

He did an interview with Robert Kennedy Jr and with David Rose of Real London about censorship.

Once again, we’re closer than you think. I only have a crude, simplistic understanding of these terms; the aficionados who have immersed themselves in this kind of political scientist slice and dice these terms into subdivisions I find bewildering. 

When I used to peruse comments at WSWS, I was baffled by the earnest, passionate disputes citing various competing sectarian schools, or trends, or whatever they’re called. 

To me, it’s like an outsider (especially a non-religious outsider) trying to master the differences in doctrine and history of, say, Protestant churches that have split and divided into a multitude of separate and distinct sub-sects. 

I do understand enough to know that tyranny, aka totalitarian autocracy, exists independently from ideology, e.g. the attempts to create communist and socialist states and societies, however badly these experiments turned out. “Tyranny” sounds about right, and will do.

So, if only because I share it, your secret is safe with me. 😉

The Covid critics within the Republicans are libertarians as you mentioned and “conservative” Republicans. They have always been staunchly anti-communist and see anything to the left of them as socialist. “Liberal” Rockefeller Republicans are fully on board with the Covid narrative.

To be fair to those placing Hitler, Mao, and Stalin under the same umbrella, all of the above were totalitarian dictators, with fascism being only one form of totalitarianism. But it is definitely wrong to refer to Hitler or any other fascist as socialist. For many conservatives and others on the right, socialism is the enemy and so anything they dislike is “socialism.”

On the left, there is the tendency to call all tyranny “fascism.” I think this unfolding global tyranny has many fascist elements but I prefer to use totalitarianism to describe it because I believe it is the most accurate term in this case.

Perhaps more importantly, though, totalitarianism is a term that can be used to unify all opposition to this tyranny across the political spectrum.

I think that the global biosecurity police State is every bit as fascist as it is totalitarian. It’s Corporatocracy on steroids. I prefer the simple, and most useful, definition of fascism, namely the one proffered by Benito Mussolini. Fascism is a marriage of the capitalist and political class. I don’t all that Mussolini said about the people, but obviously, the people are lied to – You have elections therefore you have democracy – and allowed to think that they have democracy and a say in matters affecting them, but only complete tools still believe that. A lot of were aware, for some time, that people were cut out and that the democracy we had was fake, but it wasn’t until Martin Giles and Benjamin did solid research (a lot of which went over my head, but some of which was very clear and told the story) that showed, in no uncertain terms, that powerful special interests, and not the people, influence ‘governments’.

g’day gezzah, greetings from cool sunny Perth, I remember going to Moscow in 1984 on a cheap Aeroflot deal and joining a queue in Red Square for refreshments…when you got to the end you got handed the single glass by the last person, rinsed it and filled it with water from the chrome tap in the wall. I suspect people there made communism at grass roots into a decent life because they were decent Christian people, at least what I got from Svetlana Alexievich ‘Second Hand Time’ and her other books – which are made up of first hand accounts. But this was not the intention of the State, in fact it was getting far too comfortable and ‘socialist’ and they pulled the rug out. The original intent was to create the universal camp system as Vassily Grossman put forward in ‘Life and Fate’, where the soviet camps and the nazi camps amalgamated and eventually grew to subsume all of society. Vassily was in a good position to know, he was a political commissar attached to the Red Army. Solzhenitsyn told the story. I guess what I meant to say is communism was a great feeling, but who is in charge is another matter. I once nearly joined with a friend, a Party member came to see us.

UK Column et al are apparently talking about “communism” as it is done today by the Chinese Communist Party and in the past by the USSR, not communist theory- which is itself grim as it embraces materialism and reduces people to “workers”.

Most of the flag waving nationalists (alt-right) are also adherents to the belief that state welfare is “handouts” which encourge lazy freeloaders and that everyone must work 9-5 to justify their existence.- in other words they are also communists. They also appear to support and yearn for a return to the good old days of the British Empire and the “sovereign” European monarchies lording it over the non-whites, globally.

Similarly, the Nazis were opposed to the money lenders not because of any supposed racial traits or concerns for human dignity, but simply because they were competing for Empire status.

I lost any small amount of respect I had for any of the UK MPs when they allowed the Coronavirus Act 2020 (aka The Enabling Act) to go through unchallenged.

Traitorous swine, every damn one of them. Some of them voted against its renewal, but by then, it was far, far too late.

I included a link to a Daily Mail article in my most recent blog post. The article examines the event of Tony Fauci being made sick (which he of course explains in such a way as to make us think that it’s a good thing) by his second covid 19 injection. NO mention was made in the article about deaths from these injections, even though we are now getting an avalanche of such reports. Vernon Coleman (who, unfortunately, has a head full of Rockefeller health care nonsense but otherwise is good) and Brian Shilhavy are two reports I just looked at. Boy is Brian’s report alarming!

I do agree about Corbett’s style.
Listening, for example, to Dr. Reiner Fuellmich talk about what is going on is an experience which is far more relaxing, yet still extremely informative about the crucial issues. I mean relaxing in the sense that it is easy to focus on the subject matter.

American hyper styles really get on my nerves, and otherwise excellent YouTube presentations are often wrecked by fools who think that if you add a music track (slightly too loud), people will think your video is just wonderful.
What IS that?
“Roll up! Roll up! Come and see the bearded lady!”?
Well that’s the only thing it reminds me of.

It has the opposite effect on me. After enduring more than three minues of noisy intro music and ‘soundtrack’, I’m lucky if I can even remember what the video is vaguely about, and if I do find a video to be excellent, it is never because of its background music.

I often suspect “sleight of hand” tactics in this, the idea being that while people are being half-deafened by your added soundtrack, they are not listening to what you are saying, or perhaps not noticing the lies you’re telling, if you happen to be a shill for an abhorrent agenda, for example…

Yes, the musical accompaniment to videos usually fails, in my view. The Highwire, for example, doesn’t use crash bang music but it does use the music it uses in order to manipulate. I hate that. Tell me what you want me to know, let me think about and we’ll take it from there. As for the rock intros, I absolutely hate them. 21st Century Wire (kind of slipping actually) does that. It’s everywhere. With The Highwire, the music doesn’t bash you on the head, but I find it to be nefarious, whereas the hard rock stuff, I suspect, is just bad judgement and bad taste on the part of the producers. And then there’s the need that so many people have to force their tastes (music and whatever) on you. They want you to know that they have superior taste and judgement.

I know this vague, woolly comment doesn’t advance the issue, but a while back I complained– in a thread here, IIRC– about a worthwhile RFK Jr. video that was marred by incongruous and inappropriate background music. The music was in that familiar New Age electronic “majestic” or “anthemic” style, i.e. glorified Muzak, and it ran continuously for the duration of the commentary. Most annoying!

Someone knowingly replied that this kind of music is deliberately added because it somehow functions as a “cloak” or screen that prevents automated censorbots from detecting verboten terms and flagging the video for removal.

This was the only time I’ve heard this justification, and my cursory search for corroboration didn’t turn up anything one way or the other. I’m still not sure that the end justifies the means, but I’ve been wondering if there’s any truth to this explanation.

What has happened here is that a strong elitist desire to laugh at an old, barely-coherent victim of his propaganda has conflicted with an equally strong desire to appear normal and compassionate on TV.
His brain just couldn’t handle it.

I’ve watched Corbett for years, and defended him against this critic more than once before. But I’m not going to defend him this time. The ‘Greater Reset’ isn’t a response to Davos’ Great Reset agenda, it’s a distraction, which thereby aids it by diverting would-be watchdogs away from the magicians hands, just as they are scheduling their annual tricks. This is proven by the fact that ‘The Greater Reset’ is happening at the same time as its great counterpart, rather than after it, as a ‘response’ would have to do.

I can’t find it now. It was in response to Scott, who is rampant socialist set on calling out the fake left as neoliberals (as am I when I’m not worrying about the length of the fake left’s history, particularly the Fabians), calling Corbett out as a neoliberal. I pointed out that Corbett was eager to distance himself from ‘crony capitalism’ in favour of voluntarism or anarchism and that his consistency in identifying the same globalist oligarchs as Scott does should earn him some benefit of the doubt. I also said his ‘solutions’ are the same community-driven ones that my mum proposes.

If I’d been pressed however, I’d have been forced to confess that my mum’s failure to check where community movements originated lead her into the clutches of Agenda 21. She also failed to spot the EU’s corporate threat to the power of nation states, which as an anarchist, Corbett is fundamentally set against. And this is the problem anarchists face: they leave the vulnerable with no protection from the mighty. Corporate-state brutality could crush or coerce the Greater Reset’s little allotments in an instant. See the Coral Gardens massacre in Jamaica for proof.

In short, we presently need to persuade the corporate coup’s would-be enforcers – the army and police – that they work for us and not the vampires. I.e. we need to reclaim the power of the state and put it in the hands of the people. in other words…

Socialism is not the answer. Do you have any idea what these psychopaths who have run the world for centuries are trying to do? Seize all private property, create a rentier economy and kill off most of the inhabitants while they scoop up the resources and land for themselves. And they are using the concept of socialism to achieve their aims. Anarchism was always the answer, it is the natural order of things that each individual man and woman must be above the state and has the freedom to manifest their own destiny. The idea that the state has a right over people is an outright lie. It is literally the most evil idea in the history of civilization. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Therefore central ownership is always going to be coopted by the few, against the many.

You said it: “they are using the concept of socialism to achieve their aims…” which are not socialist, but fascist. I agree that individuals should be above the state, but a socialist state is, by definition, run by the people. If Anthony Sutton’s right and communist Russia was a bankers’ investment, then it wasn’t communist or socialist; no matter what they call it. If a centralised state is run by corporate interests, it’s fascist, by definition. This analysis may mean that there have been very few, if any true socialist states. But if that’s so, then let’s say it. It’s not much different to the non-existent status of ‘meritocracies’.

The major problem in the way of true socialism is that it’s identical to true democracy (see Ellen Meiksins-Wood, Democracy Against Capitalism), as Tony Benn found out to his cost, is that it very difficult to orchestrate the self-governance of a large demos. The bigger the demos, the smaller the ‘self’, one might say. And this would be where Anarchism has its merits. But the problem with the latter is that it leaves the vulnerable with little protection from the mighty.

Are you familiar with the story of Coral Gardens in Jamaica? The Rastas commune just got crushed. Who would we call on to protect them if we oppose all governments as Corbett does? Won’t powerful brigands be able to just crush or buy defenceless communities?

Incidentally, Corbett’s most fundamental failing in my view is his assumption that all centralised governance is the same. It makes him completely blind to the corporate dynamics things such as the CIA’s guerilla wars on all of the popularly elected leftist goveenments in central and south America. Consider the Jamaican example for e.g: Manly got elected by a landslide because he’d proved he supported the workers against the sugar companies, who effectively still ran a slave-driving operation. Kissenger immediately visited him and threatened to pull all aid support his opponents if didn’t play ball with the corporations. Manly refused, so the CIA armed and funded his opponents and turned Jamaica into a war zone. Same deal in Nicaragua with the Contras, funded to stop the Sandinista’s popular uprising.

When he opposes market regulation, Corbett generally assumes that all centralised regulation is orchestrated by monopolising oligarchs, but the many revolts of the 20th century, and the CIA’s crushing response, disprove this. And the baby Corbett sees in the pre-regulated bath-water is ‘competition’. But for most people, this is just the freedom to get fucked!

The whole concept of socialism was coopted by the rulers. People and families thst have ruled for centuries. Perhaps much longer. The CIA is just an arm of MI6 and so was the KGB.

The idea that there can be some kind of decent governing body under a monetary system run by frauds, thieves and psychopaths is ludicrous.

They have tricked humanity into debt slavery. Men and women should never, ever, under any circumstances whatsoever be subject to the rule of another human being, institution or a corporate entity. Because that’s what governments are. Corporations. Corpse. As in dead.

“The idea that there can be some kind of decent governing body under a monetary system run by frauds, thieves and psychopaths is ludicrous.”

Agreed. I suggested no such thing. The fact that the USSR and China (and therefore their people) were under the money and not over it is precisely what I’m saying precludes the possibility of them being truly socialist.

Yes the elites co-opted socialism (hence my original allusion to teh Fabians) and merged it with eugenics. I’m even suspicious of Marx (allegedly a plagiarist) for co-opting Darwinism and thereby making leftist social Darwinism inevitable. I suspect that the Methodists’ and Quakers’ universalist socialism might have constituted a greater threat.

And I do have some familiarity with common law and the fact that governements are corporations. But my points were 1) it all depends who’s running the corporations, and 2) if the masses don’t forma coalition, who will protect them from the mighty? Are you just going to tell them “tough shit, you should have become mightier?”

And finally, if we’re gonna converse, perhaps you should do some research on what I’ve said in response to your comments and recirpocate, before you start telling me what else you think I need to learn. I’ve acknowledged the difficulties socialism faces and asked you for a lesson on a specific problem I see with Anarchism (protecting the vulnerable from brigands) – if you’re so knowledgeable, try shining a light on your own back yard for a minute and answer the call…

They expand their budget every year through increasing operations, scope and number. Each operation becomes a data gathering exercise to try out new methods and tactics. So they are operational exercises. Think of the world not as countries with borders but as chess pieces on a chess board the controllers are practicing with for fun, learning and slaughter.

That’s why the CIA funded and created Isis and Al Qaeda. You’ll find the bankers funded and installed communism too, if you care to look.

I would guess there are very few movements and no political parties in existence that they are not controlling. The system is set up that way, through a pyramid hierarchy. That’s why it can’t be reformed.

If you care to pay attention to my comments, you’ll find I’m aware that the banks funded communism in the USSR and China. And yes, I know they’re behind all the controlloed opposition movements you name, and that no nation controlled by bankers can stand up to them.

You’re not teaching me anything here, or even acknowledging or addressing what I say. You’re ignoring it and condescendingly attacking a stereotypical straw man.

I’ll give you one last chance to prove you can climb down off your horse for long enough to answer simple questions:
1) Don’t you think the CIA crushing popular democratic uprisings in Jamaica, Nicaragua and elsewhere proves that they were threatened by them?
2) Who would protect small Anarchist communities from bankers, if not democratic governments of nation states?
3) Since the banks are not only determined to buy out all nation states (as you correctly observe), but to render them and the Westphalia Treaty obsolete, don’t you think it’s obvious that they view nation states as an obstacle to their aims?
4) Isn’t it obvious that the reason is that it’s the only way an army or police force that they don’t control can be raised to oppose them? (Even if democracy is a half-hearted pretense, it’s one that can be used against them, because if teh police and the army genuinely believe they represent their family and friends, that can be leveraged against the money men. Hence they crush every leftist government that’s elected by a populace they haven’t managed to brainwash yet.)

Hahahaha… well I guess that’s that settled then!

While your head’s in the sand on your allotment, the banking monopolies are building their latest empire and using their hired armies and police forces to crush us all. Remind me again, how exactly is Corbett gonna help us bring them down now that he’s ignoring their scheming to focus on poxy ‘solutions’ on top of his staple diet of helping them undermine national governments to make way for their global empire?

Finally, here’s some food for thought on the relationship between common law, nation states and empires:

If you’ve any actual wisdom to share on that, I’ll be genuinely interested to hear it. But your paltry offerings so far don’t fill me with confidence…

Arnold Toynbee, to Cecil Rhodes’ disciples on why people must be tricked out of their allegience to nation states (which has been successfully achieved via the simple trick of persuading anti-racists that minding your own business is racist, while trying to ‘civilise’ ‘savages’ isn’t!):

“If we are frank with ourselves, we shall admit that we are engaged on a deliberate and sustained and concentrated effort to impose limitations upon the sovereignty and independence of the fifty or sixty local sovereign independent States which at present partition the habitable surface of the earth and divide the political allegiance of mankind. It is just because we are really attacking the principle of local sovereignty that we keep on protesting our loyalty to it so loudly. The harder we press our attack upon the idol, the more pains we take to keep its priests and devotees in a fool’s paradise—lapped in a false sense of security which will inhibit them from taking up arms in their idol’s defense. The local national state, invested with the attributes of sovereignty — is an abomination of desolation standing in the place where it ought not. It has stood in that place now — demanding and receiving human sacrifices from its poor deluded votaries — for four or five centuries. Our political task in our generation is to cast the abomination out, to cleanse the temple and to restore the worship of the divinity to whom the temple rightfully belongs. In plain terms, we have to re-transfer the prestige and the prerogatives of sovereignty from the fifty or sixty fragments of contemporary society to the whole of contemporary society — from the local national states by which sovereignty has been usurped, with disastrous consequences, for half a millennium, to some institution embodying our society as a whole. In the world as it is today, this institution can hardly be a universal Church. It is more likely to be something like a League of Nations. I will not prophesy. I will merely repeat that we are at present working, discreetly but with all our might, to wrest this mysterious political force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local national states of our world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands…”
