The Mainstream Bubble

Ralf Arnold, translation by S. Robinson

At the beginning of the already memorable year 2020, a term forced its way into public and private consciousness, which should increasingly determine and overshadow all of our lives: The “novel corona virus”, also called SARS-CoV-2. The name was officially announced by the WHO on February 11th. After that everything happened in quick succession.

At first I saw the pictures of Chinese people with masks only in the Tagesschau (the flagship evening news program by ARD, one of the two main public broadcasters in Germany; S.R.), which was not an unusual sight, but soon corona also reached our newsroom.

On the day when the first suspected corona case surfaced in our region, I was urged by our news chief to use it as a “lead story”, i.e. as the first report in the next news program.

At that time I was already extremely skeptical and found it excessive to use a mere suspected case as the lead story. However, I couldn’t escape the general excitement around me and put the message on “one”. But a bad feeling remained and that should intensify massively over the next few weeks.

A dynamic set in that seemed unstoppable.

More and more suspected cases, then confirmed corona cases, at some point the first death in Germany, some time later the first in our region. And more and more I noticed that not only colleagues, but also people in my private environment let themselves be infected by a vague fear and even panic.

Not that I dismissed the deaths, the so-called “corona deaths”, but didn’t we have many deaths in every flu epidemic, especially among the elderly? I checked our archives and found that we had only a handful of reports in three months during the 2018 flu epidemic. More than 25,000 people are said to have died of the flu at that time.

The now famous Johns Hopkins University dashboard was quickly featured on all television and online news. The so-called “new infections” were simply accumulated on this. It became clear to me that the graph with the constantly rising curve contained more psychological effects rather than factual information. In this way the curve could never sink again, in the best case it would stay horizontal. But that didn’t seem to bother anyone.

Part of the basic training of a journalist is that he never reports figures without meaningful reference. He must always provide comparisons, references and proportionalities so that the viewer / listener / reader can contextualise the information. I stuck to it for many years, and it seemed a matter of course for other journalists too. However, I saw this basic principle practically vanish into thin air in the first weeks of the pandemic. Absolute numbers, always only absolute numbers, without any meaningful reference.

To this day, people like to say that the USA is the country most severely affected by corona, with mere reference to the absolute numbers of infections and deaths, regardless of the size of the population, to which the numbers are rarely put in relation.

An ominous alliance

Our newsroom also adopted all these counting methods with a sleepwalking naturalness. Everything that was communicated by the health authorities, the district administration and the regional government was adopted and reported without questioning and without doubt. Almost all critical distance disappeared, and the authorities became supposed allies in the fight against the virus.

I have to point out, however, that I have never been called or written to directly by politicians to influence me in any way. There were only the usual press releases from the ministries and offices, which are of course written from their point of view. Nor have I been pressured by superiors, at least not directly. The whole thing is far more subtle, as will be shown.

March was the start of the first restrictions: major events were banned and soon after the first lockdown was imposed. Almost all journalists of the “mainstream”, so the so-called “leading media”, including my editorial team, seemed to immediately develop an ‘inhibition to bite’ towards politicians and the authorities. Why this uncritical reluctance among journalists?

I can only explain it to myself that particularly the pictures from Bergamo and New York also put the experienced editors and reporters into an emotional state of shock, even if they might not admit it. But they, too, are only people who are afraid of illness and death, or who worry about elderly or sick relatives; this was repeatedly an issue in conversations with colleagues. They rallied around the government, the RKI (Robert-Koch-Institute; the German equivalent of the CDC; S.R.) and the health authorities, as if one really had to stick together now to combat this dire, external threat.

You couldn’t throw a club between the legs of those in charge, who were having a difficult time already, by fundamentally questioning their measures – that was how the attitude seemed to me.

In our conversations, too, it was said more and more frequently that “the government is really doing a good job”. Most were firmly convinced that the lockdown and the restrictions of our fundamental rights were necessary and certainly only temporary. I heard only a few skeptical voices.

And then there were the TV interviews with politicians. Esteemed journalists, who in conversation with politician XY eagerly nodded and verbally agreed when they presented their assessment of the situation and made their demands. I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears!

What was the motto of the legendary television journalist Hanns-Joachim Friedrichs?

You can recognize a good journalist by the fact that he does not make common cause with anything, not even with a good cause; that he is everywhere, but doesn’t belong anywhere.”

There was nothing left of this guiding principle, and very little in the way of tough and critical inquiries. But even that didn’t seem to bother anyone, yes to not even attract attention.

A decay of reporting language

In the news of all the leading media, including ours, important, little words like “alleged”, “supposed”, “apparently” suddenly died out. For example, the Tagesschau said that Twitter wanted to delete “false information about corona” in the future. There is clearly no “alleged” or “supposed” as an addition, because it is assumed that Twitter can judge without any doubt what is false and what is correct information in terms of the corona virus (or in general). Which of course is absurd.

Sometimes I made my colleagues in the newsroom aware of such things and sometimes even earned a nod of approval, but often just a helpless shrug.

In this day and age, news need to be short, easy to understand, and interesting. We have been trained to do this for many years. This has a lot of advantages, namely the ease of understanding on the part of the consumer. But there are also significant disadvantages, namely that the news are written more and more simplistic. Deeper connections and backgrounds or complicated differentiations are increasingly disappearing. The trick is to shorten and leave out.

From early summer, one could increasingly observe the phenomenon that the corona virus and the measures against it were equated in the media. For example, it was said: “Because of the corona pandemic, the municipalities are collecting significantly less taxes” or: “The WHO fears that the corona pandemic will plunge one and a half million more people into poverty.”

This is wrong, because not the pandemic, but the lockdowns have this effect, regardless of whether they are justified and appropriate. By ignoring this distinction, however, the anti-corona measures of the governments are being turned into something inevitable and without alternative and are no longer called into question.

The cause and therefore the scapegoat is always the virus, not politics.

This practice also crept into our newsroom. Advice from me was kindly noted, but nobody really took it to heart. I had the freedom to formulate this differently, but again nobody seemed to notice the small but subtle difference.

It is also often said that Covid-19 patients in the intensive care units “have to be ventilated”. Have to? They are being ventilated, that’s the fact. The attending doctor has to decide whether this is really medically necessary, and this question is quite controversial. There are a number of well-known experts who warn against intubating too quickly. So here too, as a journalist, you should remain neutral.

The dreadful number of “new infections”

In spring 2020 I began to increasingly question the counting method of the RKI and thus also of the government. I pointed out to my superiors that all numbers such as the “new infections” reported daily or the “R-value” were basically worthless if we did not relate them back to the number of tests performed. They took note of this, but thought no further verification or inquiries were necessary, because the trend of rapidly increasing numbers could not be misunderstood, regardless of how much was tested, it said.

The number of so-called “new infections” rose from week 11 to week 12 from 8,000 to 24,000. At the end of March, the RKI announced (after multiple inquiries by the online magazine Multipolar) that the number of PCR tests had almost tripled from 130,000 to 350,000 during the same period. The relative increase in new infections was thus far less than the absolute. There had been no “exponential increase”.

When the number of “new infections” continued to fall in early summer, the politicians still constantly conjured up the risk of the “second wave” if one were to ease the efforts – that is to say, the restrictions contrary to fundamental rights. In fact, most of my colleagues also agreed with these fears, while to me – who was no less of a medical and epidemiological layperson – it was pretty clear that there would be no second wave in summer, but an even bigger in autumn / winter because that is when the number of respiratory diseases routinely increase sharply. It was easy to foresee.

The whole issue of the PCR tests and the alleged “new infections” has to this day not been questioned by the leading media. Although over time there have been more and more studies and statements by virological and epidemiological experts harshly criticising the PCR test and its particular use, hardly any of it has penetrated our mainstream bubble. The CT values ​​that were probably far too high in the tests, which give ample room to possible manipulation, were not an issue at all.

I suspect a lot of my colleagues haven’t even heard of it.

In general, the terms continue to be mixed up in this context. Even after ten months of corona, many colleagues still do not seem to know the difference between the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the lung disease Covid-19. “Infected” (that is, those who have tested positive) are often equated with “sick”, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not.

The term “recovered” is also adopted uncritically by the authorities, although it implies that those affected were actually all sick, which is highly doubtful: On the one hand because there is most likely a proportion of false-positive test results that should not be underestimated, and, on the other hand, because many “infected” people do not develop any symptoms at all and it is therefore very dubious to call them sick.

Selective perception and herd instinct

In the meantime, all kinds of regulations have been introduced in our broadcasting corporation: mask requirements, physical distancing between desks, many colleagues have moved to home office, disinfectants everywhere and so on. This and the regular, ominous-sounding situation assessments by the management, of course, still exert a psychological influence and pressure on every employee. A subtle fear is built up here too, whether intentionally or unintentionally. There is literally an invisible threat in the air that is difficult to shield yourself from.

In addition, television screens are running in the newsroom and in other offices, on which reports about corona are broadcast almost continuously.

Everywhere reporters, pictures from intensive care units, running texts with the latest, ever higher numbers – it is almost impossible to avoid this influence. In addition, there are the newspapers and agency reports that also constantly report on corona, here a study, there another apocalyptic warning from a politician, and again and again sad individual stories which are particularly highlighted.

Although we continue to have daily conferences, now mostly by telephone, right from the start – at least during the conferences in which I participated – the current narrative of the national and regional government was never fundamentally questioned, namely that we have an extremely dangerous pandemic that can only be controlled, or at least slowed down, by tough government measures. Why is that?

Everyone probably knows the effect of “selective perception”. For example, if you or your wife are pregnant, you will most likely see more and more pregnant women on the street. Or if you fall in love with someone who drives a certain make of car, then you suddenly discover that make of car, in the same color, permanently on the streets. This effect also occurs in journalism.

Years ago, for example, there was a serious incident in Germany with several attack dogs biting a three-year-old girl to death. At that time there was great shock, a political discussion about the consequences was set in motion, a “character test” for dogs and stricter rules for dog owners were demanded, the media reported about it for days and weeks. And at the same time, suddenly more and more cases of dog attacks were reported. Sudden reports of even very minor incidents came from the police.

One would have thought that all dogs in Germany, like Hitchcock’s birds, would have agreed to meet for a general attack.

What happened? The general perception had become sensitised and extremely focused, on all levels. A dachshund bit someone in the calf in the park, they immediately reported this to the police and reported the owner, the police immediately passed the report on to the press, which turned it into a news report, although it was ultimately a triviality.

Due to the alarmed attitude and the narrowed perception of all those involved, however, the triviality that would normally have fallen under the table was given an oversized significance. And the readers, listeners or viewers noticed and thought: “Not again! This is piling up now.”

The same effect can of course also be observed in crime reporting. The media user can get the impression, for example, that the situation in the country is getting worse and more dangerous and that you can hardly dare go out in the streets. It might very well be that the pure statistics show that the total number of violent crimes continues to decline. That contradicts the subjective impression, but strangely enough, hardly anyone calms down. The pictures and reports of individual fates weigh far more than the sober numbers.

You can guess what I’m getting at.

In my opinion, in the corona crisis we are basically experiencing the same effect in a global, completely exaggerated and downright paranoid dimension. And that affects just about everyone: the common man, the police officer, the journalist, the politician and even the doctor and the scientist. Nobody is per se free from it. Unless he breaks free and dares to think for himself and think outside the box.

But there is a widespread journalistic herd instinct. Most journalists look at the daily newspapers that are delivered to the editorial office every day. And of course these are all newspapers that are mainstream: Welt, FAZ, Frankfurter Rundschau, Süddeutsche [the leading national papers; S.R.] and the regional newspapers.

In the evening, one watches “heute” [the evening news program of ZDF, the second of the two main public broadcasters in Germany; S.R.] and the “Tagesschau”, followed by the relevant talk shows, from Anne Will to Maischberger [two of the leading talk shows; S.R.] Mainstream almost always dominates there too. Real critics of the corona narrative are, with rare exceptions, categorically not invited.

Still, most of the journalists I know are of the opinion that the discussions there are quite controversial. But they do not notice – for lack of comparison – that these controversies are only fig-leaf discussions. It is only discussed when and to what extent the measures should be relaxed, but the corona narrative itself remains untouched.

All of this is not to say that there is no disease or death, but the perception of this is downright neurotically excessive. There are many reports on the Internet from the last few years that describe completely overcrowded hospitals, intensive care units at the limit and overburdened crematoria. With appropriate media support, one could have caused great panic in the population back then.

Another effect is that the media now also present their journalistic content online. There it is easier and faster for everyone to access than would be the case with hardcopy newspapers and broadcasts on radio or television. This means that this content can be easily copied and adopted.

As long as it is not personal, lengthy reporting or comments, but “only” news reports, it is easy to copy-paste these into your own reports, at least parts of them. Again and again you can find almost identical formulations and messages from different providers. Even if one does not copy-paste, one is tempted to orient oneself at the selection of topics by colleagues from other leading media.

A perfidious framing

I cannot say for sure whether the corona virus can be proven with the PCR tests, where it ultimately comes from, how dangerous it really is and what the right measures are to be taken against it. But this not what this is about. I do not deny that there is a bad illness, that people die from it and that you have to take it seriously.

And that brings us to the next emotive word, the so-called “corona denier” (Corona-Leugner). A term that has been gaining ground since the summer and is now regularly used by the mainstream media to label critics of the government’s anti-corona measures. The comparison with the “God denier” and the “Holocaust denier” is obvious.

While the term “God denier” has long been history, at least in our society, the term “Holocaust denier” is still relevant and it is no coincidence that the “corona denier” is involuntarily associated with it. There is now broad consensus that one cannot deny God at all, but only not believe in him. The “Holocaust denier” is the only generally recognized exception in which journalists use the word “deny”. Otherwise it is a taboo, at least it should be. Quite simply because it contains “lie” (lügen) in the stem of the word and thus implies a lie.

Responsible journalists know that defendants never deny the allegations in court, they contest them. This should be the case even after a final judgment, because courts can also be wrong and lawsuits can be reopened.

The term “corona denier” is now infamous in three ways. Firstly because of the linguistic similarity to the socially ostracized “Holocaust denier”, secondly because the corona critics are generally claimed to deny the existence of the virus (which is not the case with the vast majority of them) and finally because they are also accused of conscious lying. This is not just bad style, it is perfidious and ensures that the rifts in society are deepened even further.

An equally dubious term used as defamatory framing is that of the “conspiracy theorist”. It basically says everything and nothing. It can be someone who believes in chem trails or that the Americans’ moon landing was only staged, but it can also be someone who exposes a Watergate scandal or who claims (as happened) that Iraq did not hoard any weapons of mass destruction, and who is later confirmed in his assumptions.

Basically every investigative journalist has to be partly a conspiracy theorist, because of course the rulers of this world do not want to have all their activities published and therefore keep them secret. In this respect, it is somewhat grotesque that the media adopt the rulers’ fighting term and use it thoughtlessly.

Alleged conspiracy theorists are also made fun of internally. Many colleagues are joking that they are crazies, who believe that Bill Gates wants to open a vaccination station with Hitler on the back of the moon. Or similar childish nonsense.

A negative highlight was the reporting of the “leading media” about the large demonstrations in Stuttgart, Leipzig and especially Berlin in the summer. It started with the number of participants. Actually, it is common for journalists to name both the number of demonstrators as announced by the police and the number of demonstrators as announced by the organisers (which is naturally always higher) at rallies.

On August 1st 2020 in Berlin, however, these details diverged so widely that one had to become suspicious. The “leading media” solved the problem by only naming the small number from the police and ignoring the high numbers that the organisers and participants mentioned. How high the number actually was is still unclear today, but here too the media acted against journalistic practices.

Were a few right-wing radicals and Reich citizens among the demonstrators? Were there many or were they even dominating the action? Numerous video streams showed that a large, if not overwhelming, proportion of the demonstrators apparently came from the middle of society. On average a little older, educated and from a middle-class background. There are also surveys and studies that confirm this.

Of course, you can argue about it, but in our editorial team, too, the matter was clear: the focus of the reporting was clearly on the right-wing radicals and Reichsbürger.

One reason for this can be found in the increasingly important part of online media. In contrast to newspapers, television and radio, it is possible to analyse exactly how many hits an individual post has, or how many “likes” on the Facebook pages, which are now also operated by all leading media.

As a result, the spectacular, and the supposedly scandalous, comes more and more to the fore because it promises more attention and thus more clicks. Various media critics say that almost everything in our society is increasingly being scandalised, no matter how casual. If so, then it is surely largely due to the “leading media” (including their tabloids).

A sealed bubble

Why is the “mainstream media” a closed bubble? Because they always get their information from the same, pre-sorted sources – and that is largely the news agencies that belong to the same bubble. They are like the gatekeepers of published opinion. That has always been the case, of course, but in the corona crisis it has become clearer than ever.

The major agencies mainly report on what supports the official corona narrative and what is propagated and implemented by the vast majority of governments around the world.

For example, almost only studies from around the world are reported which highlight the danger of the virus and the effectiveness of tough government measures. A Chinese study of around ten million people in Wuhan, which found that non-symptomatic transmission of the virus (almost all government measures are based on this assumption) was as good as irrelevant, did not feature in the agencies. It could only be found in the alternative online media.

By contrast, a study by the US-American CDC, which had contrary results, was reported. Numerous studies that showed that government lockdowns have virtually no impact on the infection rate have also been ignored by the agencies so far.

For me personally in my work this means that I cannot use any studies or information that I have found by myself on the Internet, because I would almost certainly be accused of using an uncertain source. But if DPA, AP, AFP or Reuters reported the study, I would be more or less on the safe side and could report it. If there were inquiries, I would refer to the agency. This could still lead to discussions as to whether the study is credible and whether it is worth reporting, but that would be part of a normal journalistic decision-making process.

Yes, it does happen again and again that critical experts or politicians are interviewed in the leading media or that the RKI and the federal government are criticized. But mostly it’s just fig leaves and they don’t really get to the heart of the matter.

There are statements from leading editors-in-chief of the public services that say that people like Wolfgang Wodarg or Sucharit Bhakdi [two high-profile critics with an accomplished medical / research background; S.R.] are generally not to be invited to talk shows on the subject. The bubble should stay as tightly sealed as possible.

An attempt at an explanation

Again and again I wonder why almost all of my colleagues so willingly and uncritically adopt this narrative from the government and from a few scientists (selected by the government) and disseminate it further. As already mentioned, concern for your own health or that of relatives certainly plays a role. But there is more.

In the last few years, something called “attitude journalism” has emerged. It is an intellectual and moralising arrogance that I think is spreading more and more. You simply belong to the “good guys”, to those who are on the “right side”. One believes that one has to instruct the mistaken citizen.

It is no longer a question of neutrality, but of representing the “right cause”, and surprisingly often this coincides with the interests of the government. The sentence by Hanns-Joachim Friedrichs mentioned above has even been completely reinterpreted in the meantime, in the sense of “attitude journalism”.

But this is increasingly alienating journalists from a good part of their clientele.

In the 1990s, the red carpet was rolled out to us reporters, editors, and presenters when we showed up anywhere in the country. Today we almost have to be happy when people don’t shout “Lying press!” [Lügenpresse; a term adopted by the Nazis in the Third Reich for the Jewish, communist, and foreign press; S.R.]. Of course, this term is wrong and should be rejected because of its history, but we journalists play a large part in the increasing alienation.

To be fair, the aforementioned “attitude journalism” only applies to some of the journalists, but mostly to their prominent representatives. Many of my colleagues seem to be overwhelmed by the complexity of the subject. Not intellectually, but rather because there is no time to dig into these things alongside the daily routine work. Close to impossible if you still have to do homeschooling with the children in the evening. Others simply lack interest in the subject.

In any case, one reason is the fear of attracting negative attention through overly critical statements. The self-reinforcing momentum of the mainstream bubble ensures that hardly anyone wants to swim against the current. Although a good number of the editors are on permanent contracts, there is great concern about the consequences. As I can observe in myself.

A fundamental problem with the mainstream bubble is that it either ignores or suppresses what is outside the bubble or perceives and interprets it from within that bubble. And so most mainstream journalists know the statements and positions of critical thinkers like Wodarg and Bhakdi (to name just two of many) only from reports in the mainstream media, which are of course biased accordingly. Hardly anyone takes the trouble to actually draw from the numerous alternative sources.

An afterword

This report is of course only a subjective assessment. Most of my fellow journalists would see it completely differently. However, I am not so concerned here with assessing the danger of the corona virus or the appropriateness of government measures. My concern is that in the corona crisis, in my opinion, journalistic standards and principles have been increasingly thrown overboard, as I have tried to at least indicate.

This in turn ensures that the media have become virtually meaningless as a democratic corrective, which in turn plays into the hands of political aspirations to power.

George Orwell is reported to have said that journalism is when you publish something that someone does not want published. Everything else is propaganda. Measured against this claim, it has to be said that the mainstream media in the corona crisis to 99 percent only deliver propaganda.

I myself have the naive hope of still being able to make a difference, in whatever way, because freedom of the press is in and of itself an extremely important asset in a democratically free society. I still believe in that.

A little light relief Tony Soprano Fauci is driving out of New Jersey to the city with his friend and consigliere, Silvio Dante. They are headed for a “sit-down” with one of the New York Families Committees. Both men are dour-faced and their hair is strangely similar and…strange. It is as though the hair gel plastered on over the decades has solidified, and the result is like shiny marble. They are like two Thunderbirds puppets without the uniforms. Tony doesn’t realise it, but Silvio is well pissed off with him. After while Tony notices that they are going the wrong way. “Silvio, what the —- are you doing? Where are you taking me?” “Relax Tony.

Some of us had read tons of articles, compared dozens of web pages with “official data”, and had done not only intelectual analisis, but also spiritual work this last year . And some of us , like me, are getting to a conclusion: cvid event was a hoax, and definitely is no more dangerous than a flu. So everything is just lies, propaganda and social engeneering. Last year, last decade, hundreds of thousands of people died from metabolic diseases, cancer, ebola, wars, poverty and so. Nobody cared. Not even the ones(gvernments,”filantropers”, and other “health” and global institutions). Science has been hijacked by some. World has turned into a rudicolous circus. Pathetic humans with fear of death and so, fear of living walk the streets. Everything is just on Tv aan media. If you walk the streets and hospitals there is a different reality. So there is a big “egregor”,new religion… Read more »

You are not allowed to leave – your body does not belong to you. Which is why suicide is illegal. God demanded it and the State demands it. You are not allowed to either live or die because you are supposed to be born a slave.

Just to show that there are some print newspapers left that have an independent spirit, the following was included in the regular column “Tales from the Coffee Shop” in yesterday’s Cyprus Mail, the print English-language daily in Cyprus. This column mainly focuses on corruption in high places, and comes with a huge dose of satire and irony and usually refers to Cyprus as “Kyproulla”, so make of it what you will. But despite this improvement, acknowledged by the generalissimo, Constantinos Ioannou, and the reopening of the retail sector including malls, the fascistic SMS system remains in place. Is this an example of the state taking away our liberties and refusing to give them back? And incidentally, it is only Greece and Kyproulla that have this police state measure in force that in our case is indefensible and totally unjustified. I urge people to disobey and fight against this undemocratic measure.… Read more »

For those that don’t know, in Greece and Cyprus you are supposed to either send an SMS to a government machine stating reason for leaving the house, or fill in a goverment-authored form (which you have to print out yourself) BEFORE leaving the house, ticking a box from a short list of approved reasons for going outside and filling in your name, address, ID number, time and date. You are supposed to carry that piece of paper with you and show to police if questioned. The population in Greece is already reeling from the IMF’s and World Bank’s most recent pillaging and so the mere threat of a 300 euro fine is enough to keep most of them compliant. The fine is not a spot fine but gets added to your annual tax… This is democracy now in the birthplace of democracy… But then again the Greeks are used to… Read more »

It certainly could be how some of the low level journalists get recruited into the covid atrocity but what of more high level participants? Could it be that they are ensnared in a child abuse ring and this is what gets them to participate in such a gigantic crime?

Great report. I worked in news for 20+ years in Canada, US and Middle East. So I had been reading reports from China long before the ‘pandemic’ was ‘declared’ and It was an interesting story for the first few months, as you say. But when it suddenly went ballistic, I made an effort to calm my family and friends with what I thought was logical facts and arguments. But as time went on it became impossible to engage in any sort of anti-virus discussions. So I adopted another tactic; I began ‘reporting’ via text or whatever, new ‘trends’ I noticed that seemed to have been created in order to keep the fear alive. So UK might announce a new lockup and then Germany and France and… A new deadly ‘strain’ would pop up out of nowhere, just as the ‘numbers’ were deceasing, first in one country and then another and… Read more »

Has anybody been following the “Charlie” (Lord) Falconer story? He’s an old friend of Blair (I think they were law students together; he decided to stay in the law and become a rich b—–d, while Blair went into politics, postponing becoming a rich b—–d for a few years). Needless to say, he ended up in Blair’s government, as an unelected Lord (good stuff this democracy isn’t it?) Was initially in Corbyn’s shadow cabinet, until resigning as part of the Chicken Coup, and, needless to say, is back in the Shadow Cabinet under “Sir” Keir. So, we know exactly whose side he’s on: a rich b—–d who works only for the good of other rich b——ds. Well, he’s been in the news for having said, at a dinner for other rich b—–d lawyers, that “Covid is the gift that goes on giving”. He meant it in the context of the law,… Read more »

Germ theory = the “main strea media” are sick. please stop lieing to the innocent people. no solution .
Terrain theory = the people are sick. they keep going back to the the same lieing media for more lies year after year. solution, stop reading junk.

the germ theory is much more harmful than it might appear since it is a logical fallacy mirrored everywhere.

Yes, yes, germ theory versus terrain theory is a worthy topic. Those of us commenting here understand the difference. Many if not most of us here are open to in-depth discussion about it.

But it is not something to discuss with people who are so brainwashed that they are wearing masks outdoors when not required to, strictly obeying “rules” of social distancing devised by a high school student, and willingly – sometimes contentedly – giving up social activities of all sorts, even work. The only way to fight this (if there is a way) is on a simple level. Maybe, just maybe, defense of freedom of expression may have an effect.

But I do not want to be harangued every day that if I read an article that assumes a virus I am hopelessly mired in incorrect thinking.

On an anecdotal level, and bearing in mind the wearing of masks outdoors is mandatory here in Cyprus with no exceptions or exemptions backed up with a €300 fine, yesterday was a fine sunny day (spring seems to be coming early this year) and so I set out on a long walk (having gained permission by SMS to leave home!) and I noticed quite a few people out and about in my suburban neighbourhood and virtually nobody was muzzled. Today I was in the city centre of Limassol and was happy to observe a significant minority totally unmuzzled and a considerable number of people wearing masks but with them under their chins. Too early to speak of a clear trend, but obviously if a certain critical mass is reached the mask rule will become unenforcable.

Regarding bubbles of another kind, I have my first regret beginning to crystallise – I wish I had written into my diary each week what the restrictions here (West Wales) have been. I have lost track of how many weeks and months it has been now. We are currently, still, in “level 4” on an ongoing basis with I think a review once every 3 weeks where nothing much seems to change. Before that we were in some status that had a different name, but the “rules” were much the same. Back when we were put under something they called “lockdown”, I’m sure it wasn’t as strict/harsh as what we have now. Village life here could be wonderful, but that opportunity is wasted. Since a couple of people got reported for stuff there is an air of distrust. It goes on and on. I just re-read the wales.gov page “visiting… Read more »

Tablet mag is a Zionazi-Capitalist propaganda sheet. This typical China-bashing puff-piece is already six months old and even when new it was only regurgitating weary Cold-War1 anti-communist crap. The truth, which AZC Presstitutes cannot bear to face, is that China was well aware of the viral activity going on in Dr.Fauci’s U$ Biowarfare Lab in Wuhan. President Xi acted promptly and decisively to stop the spread of any virus — and just as importantly, to quell alarm and dispondency through rumours.

The aim of biowarfare is not only to spread sickness among a targeted population, but also to spread alarm, despondency and wild panic for their nearest and dearest. Prompt and decisive action by the CCP meant that China avoided the paralytic totalitarian Lockdown that continues to oppresses the Capitalist West — with no end in sight.

Amazingly, noone’s mentioned EMF yet, which imo is rather a prevailing problem.

Anyway, one guy commented “I wonder what the health implications are, especially long term” or something like that, so a couple of guys replied “None, it’s non-ionizing”. Of course, that assumption of it not having health implication is entirely incorrect. So…I started replying with an overview study regarding that, started explaining, etc. Very soon I was of course attacked, though with me posting post after post of explanation of processes, study references, etc. No dice, typical shill types keep up the willful ignorance, attacks, etc with ZERO refutations.

It has been claimed that Wuhan was the first city to introduce blanketed 5G, with Iran, cruise ships and Italy being among other places where 5G was introduced.” … “This happened in 1918 with the Spanish flu, which occurred with the worldwide introduction of radio traffic. Cowan says when they asked renowned anthropologist Rudolf Steiner about the millions of victims of the Spanish flu in 1918, he replied: “Viruses have nothing to do with it. Viruses are reactions of the poisoned cell that, in defence against the poison itself, secretes the viruses to allow the cell to survive. “Viruses are therefore waste products… Read more »

Hi Frank, the 1918 Spanish “Flu” was so-named because of the flu-like symptoms displayed by many. These symptoms manifested themselves in people for many reasons some may well have been seasonal influenza/pneumonia but the vast majority were the direct result of elements surrounding the 1914-18 war.
Soldiers returning from war with poor health from contaminated water supplies, mustard gas, malnutrition, trenchfoot etc
Factory workers involved in munitions and the dust from such explosives, the welding processes and the gases given off.
This occurred the world over, not just the UK/Europe.
All the above, and more, combined to make millions sick and millions die. It wasn’t a single disease.

Hello Frank GL: Excellent post! Though I am self taught, I happen to have a fairly strong background in electronics engineering and radio broadcast theory. A good friend introduced me to a Russian Institute of Science article published in 1978. The study detailed multiple negative health consequences of radar and UHF broadcast on those utilizing the technology. This heads up was in 1981… I’ve been attempting to wake people out of their radio induced stupors ever since.

I concluded long ago that most people would rather die of cancer and leukemia than face the scientific facts… Buy a cell phone for your kids!!! Poison your pets!!! Make sure to upgrade to 5G, Now!!! Play game Apps and download music!!! Let’s hurry toward death!!!

It is South Africa, they are mostly older africans and/or “coloureds”, but I even still see children on the street. There is rampant poverty and injustice.

Shit, when I was walking around at night in 2019, I would sit with the hobos, smoke a joint with them, give them some food, etc. Many of them drug addicted (typically heroin and meth), from various traumas. Some of them would often sit there shooting up heroin while I was speaking with them. The police would literally be across the street. It mattered not.

In South Africa, btw, the coloureds are generally more marginalized and mistreated than others. Because of both the “other” sides having their racial, ignorant, supremacist polarized arrogances from the vestiges of their bastardized and corrupted “cultures”.

I despise the inept kakistocratic, kleptocratic, inhumane worthlessness of these institutions and govts. And it breeds what I call sociopsychopatheticism.

So essentially I’m paraphrasing Jon (as a reminder).

If someone harps on about doing this and that, why it’s so necessary for safety, then hypocritically fails to adhere to his/her own suggestions that implicitly means THERE IS NO DANGER, THERE ARE NO VALID REASONS TO WEAR MASKS, NO VALID REASONS FOR LOCKDOWNS.

I did ask “protesters” I have been collaborating with, but only one replied and unfortunately he lives too far away and there is no way I can even get to his place right now as I cant take a train. None of the other “protesters” have even replied with the minimal politeness… So here am I in the huge… Read more »

Thank you for your comment. Extremely thought-provoking. I do hope things work out for you health-wise. In defence of those you have been collaborating with in recent times – in the small chance I can possibly help you reach peace: The merit/mediocracy are under almost zero strain right now, well-off, probably salaried therefore receiving furlough from the government, supported and nourished by the shared lie which, although it is seeking to eradicate or severely reduce their quality of life in the long term, at this moment is insulating them. Whereas, those fighting the narrative are under immense psychic and psychological strain and are having to dig extremely deep in order to make any stand whatsoever. I myself simply drew a blank when someone needed my help over Christmas, trying to convince her father to join them on the day who, despite his promises, had reneged.

Thank you so much Sam. Indeed the mainstream is under no psychological strain and hence you are perfectly right, from that point of view they are possibly more likely to offer help. The whole lunchtime was spent talking about their dog. I just about could sustain it. Then they mentioned “superspreaders” and I went even quieter and quickly changed the conversation! The “protesters” I had in mind I dont think have financial worries, and evidently Id contribute, as I offered to do to my hosts since we’re not friends, though they never asked, it certainly would help Im sure. Also I did not want to ramble on. But the person who has looked after me since the surgery as only family could do decided not to take any work contract to do so, has refused to accept any financial compensation (he certainly is not rich having lost all his savings)… Read more »

Who are good people and who are not? The officers of SS; Hitler’s military guards were selected from most dedicated people with highest moral standards; sacrifice, compassion, committed to law and order often trained in art and culture, people who would not steal a cent, would not hurt wife or a woman or child or a fly if it was illegal, unselfishly help those in need. All of them were presented as chosen people acting legally, morally for common good, to defend of a nation and in solidarity with all Germans. That did not stop them from being one of most murderous thugs in history while they were good fathers or mothers. Remember strict class solidarity and unwavering support and understanding no questions asked whatever class it is, Lower or upper doesn’t mean humanity and human morality. if someone helped me in dire situation this mere fact tells me nothing… Read more »

Kalen, I was vaguely thinking on those lines last night. Im not thinking of the Nazi party cadres who had a death cult (like those in charge of us: I was reading an interesting book by Erich Fromm about sadism coming from a hatred of life, and how this leads to the most dangerous form of inhumanity), but of the general German population (who may not have had any death cult) during the Nazi period. They surely helped one other and anyone they considered sufficiently “Aryan”. And indeed my hosts are the kind of people because of whom the current dystopia is possible. Rather, I wish we who understand were more active in real life mutual help. I wanted to set up a website where people could demand and offer help, or even place adverts if they want to rent their flat, take in a lodger, or if anyone is… Read more »

Or, perhaps try projected delegation, something like getting someone to send you some information and sort of try make small-talk and “accidentally” mentioning it… “Can you believe this? These colleagues are pestering me with strange claims about vaccine safety. It was my understanding that issue is settled…but let’s take a look at how misguided these people are, I’m sure I can quickly find and correct their errors” And then you don’t, aside from say, irrelevant sort of inconsistencies.

I refused to wear one, as did my best pal who sat next to me.

I chose to give a brief summary of my mums life. The minister, by the way, was excellent and very sympathetic.

My condolences for your loss. I’m very glad to hear of your mother’s healthy attitude to death.
I once found a religious pamphlet entitled “There is only life”, and it went into considerable depth about what our existence actually means. Mozart also had some amazingly optimistic words to say about death.

Nice words; it’s important to remind people that there is life, not only death, death, death. The life must be lived, enjoyed, not spent in fear of dying, which will happen anyways.

My mother is still alive, over 80 but going strong. Kinda oblivious to the mayhem around her. Then again, she had to make do at the age of 2 1/2 when grandpa and grandma were arrested by the Nazis for fighting in the Resistance and the Gestapo was after her because she is Jewish. Some nice people kept her in hiding until the end of the war. I’m sure that a lot of people have ancestors with courage – it’s time to remember their legacy NOW!

It is good to hear that your mother is still going strong at her age. Your words resonate with me because of my family background. A great-uncle of mine fought in the Resistance and my Dutch Gran managed on her own in her teens to provide food and shelter for Jewish neighbors, always with collaborators hard on her heels. For her a Nazi across the border was the same thing. As a small child, I heard her talk about NSB when she was young, and how they almost ratted on her. I was lost in translation and found it strange that teddy bears (phonetic NSB-ren) could harm a person. I don’t think I could live up to both their bravery, but I know I don’t have to. All it takes for us is to quickly get more in numbers. To do this, we have to get middle-of-the-road people on board.… Read more »

Grandma was tough like a rock, and so is my mum. In a different way, but she always manages, always finds a way out. My experience in life is that women are way tougher than men.

I’ve often wondered whether people today would be capable of the kind of bravery as the lady who took my mum as her own and kept her in hiding throughout the war. We might be finding out soon …

Can the herd behaviour of journalists be conciousley manipulated using scientific insights into group behaviour?

If modern journalism relies on the news agencies for input then to control the agencies is to control the information the masses resieve.

Modern media outlets don’t have spare manhours available to investigate things. Opinion pieces are a cheaper way of filling space. In the late eighties I recall all UK newspapers switching, at the same time, to a much greater proportion of opinion pieces.

It strikes me that the people who work in the media bubble have been manipulated into manipulating the people in the larger public information bubble.

Have Germans and Brits forgot that they are practically the same people, that they, as family, fought against each other due to their various “shepherding” leaders?

A rudimentary look at the resulting institutions (such as in agriculture, medicine, psychology, sociological, scientific institutions in america) suggests the axis conveniently bowed (while of course being completely complicit with the “allies” in the war against citizens) for an appearance of victory.

When in fact, all their institutions were infilitrated by some kind of bastard satanic bolshevism.

When I was about five years old, a slightly older kid, Billy, lived across the driveway from me. This was a wide concrete driveway separating blocks of row houses, not a suburban single-home asphalt driveway. Billy shared an exciting discovery: there were innumerable flattened black blobs on that driveway.

I’ve said this once or twice, but it’s the sort of statement or sentiment I don’t see enough of, because I dunno why.

If you support vaccines (any of them), we cannot be friends or associate. I base this belief on a very well researched understanding of the lies and damage relating to vaccines, and I find people who support vaccines either ignorant, misguided or malicious.

I don’t necessarily hold it against you if you support vaccines from a position of ignorance (if not willful), but excepting those, I have zero respect for the rest.

I have been attacked, accused, demonized,censored, banned and marginalized (like many others) for pointing out numerous facts regarding vaccination damage and considerations.

While I do not harbour any feelings of causing harm to vaccine supporters, that practice is, unless entirely based on consent simply malevolent and degenerate.

“While I do not harbour any feelings of causing harm to vaccine supporters, that practice is, unless entirely based on consent simply malevolent and degenerate.” And as a reminder about that, infants don’t consent, animals don’t consent. And remember the forced vaccinations and experiments? And all vaccines have been lied about and all of them are degenerating. For example, it was established by Dr. Bradfield (who of course died) that nagalase (in for example MMR vaccine) is associated with autism, though not only. Japan banned the MMR vaccine, for good reason. More generally, aluminum toxicity levels in vaccines, have been and are lied about. They based the idea of supposed aluminum safety on ORAL intake, which also has (in the context of ORAL intake) an error factor of about 8x. Now how about you go inject yourself with the next pack of fries you would’ve eaten and compare the toxicity… Read more »

the so called adjuvant is the active ingredient or one of them. it is just a cover story for intended harm with aluminium, mercury etc. “Studies show the metal adjuvants in vaccines may not even do what they’re promoted to do, and higher levels relate to increasing adverse reactions”. pg 181.

They specifically and intentionally conflate the oral vs injection absorption problems. They for instance suggest it is quickly removed by the body. Which is only the case in gradual, low amounts of oral intake, when the system is not overloaded by that toxicity. It is nowhere near comparable to the load from injections. With injections, the aluminum very comfortably overloads that capacity to deal with it and as a result gets incorrectly deposited into key areas of the body, where it can sit there for a lifetime. That of course refutes their very prominent false claim of it being quickly expelled from the body. Additionally, one of their methodological “reasons” for using adjuvants is for PERSISTENT antigen exposure. That is, persistent, diverted, unnecessary, toxic crap. So they contradict themselves in that regard, too. I’ve contacted the children’s hospital of philadelphia about that, as an example. Of course, in their replies… Read more »

Open Fascist Corporates experimental Vax coercion. from ABC: CINCINNATI — Kroger has joined a growing list of large US grocery store chains offering incentives for workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The company announced that its associates would get a one-time $100 payment if they show proof that they’ve received the full manufacturer-recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. Workers that can’t get the vaccine for health or religious reasons can get the payment if they take an educational health and safety course, the company said in a news release. Dr. Mengele “volunteers” for medical experimentation also got something for consent to become human guinea pigs: more better food even alcohol from cantina or camp’s whorehouse voucher, warmer cloths (sweaters from human hair), better bed and warmer barrack with less lice and cockroaches , no murderous work in quarry or midnight beating raids by SS guards.. for a while, and in… Read more »

If the CDC numbers are accurate here is the how and why there were so many “Covid deaths” conjured- this then means explaining the following for example: 1) The first thing that must be addressed is “who were these people?” The average age of a “Covid death” is 80 in the US and 82 globally w/3 comorbidities.

Follow-up: 5) Home deaths is yet another way that figures were cooked. This was admitted point blank by Stephanie Buehle among others (NY Health spokesperson) who stated that home deaths, with no testing at all, would be presumed “Covid deaths.” This was mandated through the NY Health Dept. 6) Covid death counts were forged. CDC instructed officials to certify any death as “caused by” COVID if the decedent tested positive prior to passing or was suspected of having C19, even if it wasn’t the actual cause of death. Thus we have major misattribution. E.g., we have over 14,000 injury deaths in the current CDC C19 death tabulation. Absurd or criminal? We are also seeing unexplained declines in other common death categories because so many have been attributed to C19.

Codification of misattribution (to go with the already rampant misattribution of toxicity and deficiency results as viruses), this is glorious: “COVID-19: The “underlying cause of death”. This concept is fundamental. It is defined by the WHO as “the disease or injury that initiated the train of events leading directly to death”. The criteria have been changed. In the US, the CDC instructions are crystal clear. COVID-19 will be the underlying cause of death “more often than not”” https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/coronavirus/Alert-2-New-ICD-code-introduced-for-COVID-19-deaths.pdf Exhibit A: “Will COVID-19 be the underlying cause? The underlying cause depends upon what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate. However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID- 19 being the underlying cause more often than not.” So due to their codification, they EXPECT, and implicitly suggest that the deaths should be listed as covid.

If a cloth mask can simply be tossed into a washing machine to be made safe for reuse, how is this “virus,”so easily handled with soap and hot water suddenly so deadly people cannot even enter a building housing their dying loved one to comfort them in their most desperate hour of need?

If a disposable mask can simply be tossed into your kitchen trash bin or discarded in the parking lot of the local grocery with no penalty, how is this “virus,” so easily managed and controlled with a temporary clumsy barrier suddenly so deadly you must be separated from society at the airport and removed against your will to an “isolation centre“ otherwise known as a prison for 3-14 days?

Why can’t they just test your saliva,or get you to blow your nose into an appropriately designed medical “handerchief”?

I read yesterday (from a source that predated “Covid” by many decades, so no reason for bias) that one millilitre of nasal mucous could contain something like 100,000 rhinovirus particles, in someone infected with rhinovirus.

So why would not the same be true for someone infected with “SARS-CoV-2”?

So all this digging into your nose & throat (even more so if it’s your anus) is a form of abuse, designed to put you in your place.

Yep, I’ve noticed that about Darwin, oh, and North Queensland as well. I’m expecting the lunacy to start up here again pretty soon. In fact, I reckon Melbourne will be back in lockdown say, um, let me guess: April 1st. That would be very apt Oggy.

As Chomsky pointed out three decades ago a veneer of democracy covers deep totalitarian culture in seemingly open, seemingly democratic western societies. Such totalitarian culture requires that all the social institutions, including press and academia medicine, etc., public or privately run, serve interests of ruling elites.

And the biggest joke of all: Chomsky himself helps maintain that veneer!

I belatedly discovered Chomsky’s response to the JFK assassination; I was already appalled by his “nothing to see here, move along” response to the events of September 11, 2001, but mistakenly thought it was an aberration.

So I was dismayed to learn that the supposedly greatest critical analyst of the insidious practice of “manufacturing consent” was not above manufacturing some consent of his own when crowded by circumstances.

Kalen – Thanks.

“a veneer of democracy”

the face has long worn a disguise – far before Convid, as were the warnings of the coming avalanche – ignored, slowly nudged toward the chilling spike…followers of the piper, but as they didn’t turn on the climb, what hope on this precipice ?
