US Election 2020: From Conspiracy Theory to Conspiracy Fact

Andrew Korybko
Time magazine admitted in a report last week that a self-described “conspiracy” run by a “well-connected cabal of powerful people” “got states to change voting systems and laws” and “successfully pressured social media companies” among other achievements aimed at “democratically” toppling Trump, the revelation of which represents an attempt by the Democrats to flex their newfound post-election narrative power over their opponents as well as possibly provoke the most unstable at-risk ones among them to overreact in a violent way that could then be exploited for justifying the next phase of their “conspiracy”.

The Cat’s Out Of The Bag

The Democrats and their supporters previously defamed everyone speculating about secretly concerted efforts against former President Trump in the run-up to and after last year’s elections as “conspiracy theorists”, and such individuals even risked being de-platformed from social media for exercising their constitutionally enshrined freedom of speech depending on how they articulated their personal views in this respect.

They were told that publicly expressing such an interpretation of events is equivalent to spreading “disinformation” and attempting to “delegitimize” the “democratic” outcome of the US’ electoral process. That makes it all the more surprising then that Time magazine admitted in a report last week that a self-described “conspiracy” run by a “well-connected cabal of powerful people” “got states to change voting systems and laws” and “successfully pressured social media companies” among other achievements aimed at “democratically” toppling Trump.

In other words, “conspiracy theory” became “conspiracy fact”.

Politically Inconvenient Questions

This naturally begs the question of why that pro-Democrat media outlet would so proudly brag about “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election”, as its piece is titled. Time can’t be “discredited” by the Democrats otherwise they’d inflict the same such damage against the dozens of individuals named in their report who voluntarily cooperated with journalist Molly Ball in order to show, as one of them phrased it, that “the system didn’t work magically” and that “democracy isn’t self-executing”.

Whether they intended to or not, they confirmed this hitherto so-called “conspiracy theory” as a “conspiracy fact”, thereby vindicating every Trump supporter who earlier expressed such sentiments. Not only that, but they also tacitly acknowledged that those who were deplatformed were victims of the same self-described “conspiracy” run by a “well-connected cabal of powerful people”. It’s seemingly inexplicable why they’d do this, but deeply reflecting on the deliberate decision to reveal all of this provides some plausible explanations.

The Democrats’ Post-Election Narrative Power Flex

The first is that, since “Every Democrat Is A Wannabe Dictator”, the party wanted to flex its newfound post-election narrative power to humiliate its opponents.

The message being sent is simple enough, and it’s that they’re able to not only get away with literal “conspiracies” such as this one, but are powerful enough to weaponize the institutions under their control (Big Tech, government, mass media, etc.) in order to politically suppress those who dare to call them out on it.

As predicted in the author’s analysis late last year about how “Biden’s America Would Be A Dystopian Hellhole”, the Democrats want to rapidly impose a de facto one-party dictatorship onto the rest of the country in collaboration with their “Republican In Name Only” (RINO) allies.

They’re drunk enough on power after having successfully pulled off what RT’s Nebojsa Malic rightly described as a Color Revolution and thus winning what the author of the present piece earlier called the Hybrid War of Terror on America that they’re excited to move full speed ahead towards this goal without any hesitation.

Maximum Demoralization Motives

The Trump-inspired “Make America Great Again” movement is mired in a political war with the RINOs while simultaneously struggling to purge itself of subversive QAnon elements. This makes it weaker than it ever was at any moment since its inception and thus unable to adequately organize any meaningful political resistance to this scheme.

There’s never been a better moment for the Democrats to strike in dealing what they hope will be the death blow to their most important opponents’ morale, especially since their revelation was disclosed at the time that swamp-captured Trump decided to ally with the GOP Establishment in the likely misplaced hope that the party can regain control of Congress during the 2022 midterm elections.

The intense frustration that some of the Democrats’ opponents might understandably feel about all of these overwhelming developments happening at once might even incite some of the most unstable and at-risk ones such as the QAnon cultists to overreact in a violent way that could then be exploited for justifying the next phase of this “conspiracy”.

Dictatorship Through “Democratic” Motions

After all, there’s little doubt among the Democrats’ opponents that the party is now going all out in its attempt to impose a de facto one-party dictatorship onto the rest of the country, especially after Time proudly bragged about how they pulled off the first phase of their self-described “conspiracy” to “democratically” topple Trump due to the “secret” efforts of a “well-connected cabal of powerful people”.

Even though they’ve made it clear that they’ll weaponize their control over institutions to politically suppress others through defamatory attacks, deplatforming, and perhaps worse on the basis of indisputable narrative double standards, they still want to complete their full seize of power by going through superficially “democratic” motions.

It would therefore greatly advance their grand strategic goal if an unstable, at-risk, and uncontrollably distressed Trump supporter was triggered by this revelation to plot or even God forbid carry out a domestic terrorist attack. In fact, that doesn’t even have to happen in reality since the context is already set to invent that allegation if needed.

Confusion Reigns

One of the implied supplementary objectives of admitting to the “conspiracy” against Trump by a “well-connected cabal of powerful people” is to make it impossible for anyone to really know what to believe anymore.

For this reason, any reports about domestic terrorist attacks or plans by Trump supporters in response to Time’s surprising disclosure can’t be taken at face value since there will always be the lingering but nevertheless plausible doubt that such allegations are also part of the larger “conspiracy” that was recently confirmed.

As such, it wouldn’t be surprising if many people suspected that such an attack was a false flag or that those implicated in planning something of the sort were entrapped by the secret police (FBI), if the latter even happened at all that is.

The intent in so directly addressing this isn’t to automatically extend credibility to those interpretations, but just to draw attention to how likely they are to emerge in the aftermath of Time’s scandalous report.

“American Solidarity” Is The Only Realistic Solution

The domestic political impact would nevertheless be the same whether they really happened as might be reported or not since those incidents would certainly be exploited to advance the Democrats’ grand strategic goal of imposing a de facto one-party state onto the rest of the country.

Admittedly, there doesn’t seem to be anything that dissidents can do to stop this, except perhaps immediately organizing an “American Solidarity” movement modelled off of its historic Polish counterpart, even if it too might take years to have any noticeable effect, if any at all considering the drastically different domestic political conditions in which it would peacefully operate.

Not only would any attempt to organize violent resistance be illegal and arguably immoral, but it would simply facilitate the Democrats’ plans by providing real evidence of what they’d describe as a domestic terrorist plot for justifying the accelerated implementation of the next phase of their “conspiracy”. For these reasons, “American Solidarity” is the only realistic (albeit possibly long-term) solution to this predicament.

Concluding Thoughts

The Democrats made a deliberate decision to have one of their most prominent mouthpieces so proudly brag about the self-described “conspiracy” that a “well-connected cabal of powerful people” pulled off against Trump.

This was done to humiliate and demoralize their political opponents, as well as likely provoke the most unstable and at-risk ones such as the most radical QAnon cultists into overreacting by committing acts of violence that could then be exploited as the justification for next phase of their “conspiracy”.

The messages being sent are several: the Democrats have successfully captured control of all institutions and are now weaponizing them to politically suppress their opponents on the basis of double standards; this revelation was widely known long ago by all sides but only publicly acknowledged by the culprits at this point due to its strategic timing; and nobody can ever take the Democrats’ and their proxies’ (including institutions’) statements at face value any more. In truth, while one Hybrid War on America just ended, another has only begun.

Politics in the US uses the two party system to control us. Other systems are used in different countries. The star is still a system of control and violence. Until we are willing to refuse our participation and support we will be playing a game of heads you win, tails I lose. Our Republicans are theater. Trump was theater.

What was not said is that the establishment government was deeply involved in this as well. State officials approved rules and laws that allowed any piece of paper to become a ballot. The state election offices clearly hid evidence from watchers and others not in on the coup to hide the cheating. The DOJ purposefully turned a blind eye on the evidence that was discovered which I suspect will be repeated with the final cases before SCOTUS. This was not just a group of powerful folks, this was an entire army of complicit government workers who bought into a democrat takeover that they believed would expand the government and thus their security, power, influence and compensation. Make no mistake to think it was anything less.

60 Minutes: QAnon’s corrosive impact on the U.S.
“Some were easy to spot with their Q signs and chants.”

Feb 22, 2021
Tens of millions of Americans believe QAnon’s core — and false — theory that an evil cabal of Satan-worshipping elites commits atrocities against children and controls much of the world. Where does this movement stand and who has it impacted? Lesley Stahl reports.

Youtube Warning (c/o Wikipedia):
QAnon, or simply Q, is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping, cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotted against former U.S. president Donald Trump while he was in office.

No, this this read to me like a blackmail piece, they’re reminding their newly installed minions in Washington how they got there. In fact this doesn’t bode well for the democrats it seems pre election promises aren’t being kept thus the article.

Remember though removing President Trump was the unifying objective, I’m certain the people are the top do not share the same level of consciousness with every single individual who participated in the coup, thus I predict an implosion within various interest groups. In order to control the implosion they’ll have to do some serious house cleaning, expect a lot of suicides in months to come.

You’re probably right. A false flag could be leveraged to attack the 1/6 folks that entered the capital and could be shown as committed by Trump supporters and that all Trump voters are now suspect and must be red flagged as potential terrorists. They would fill the juries with democrat Trump haters and all will be convicted with maximum sentences imposed by the judges. They will show all that the Reich shall not be challenged.

As they say there is nothing new under the sun

https://www.jfklibrary.org/archives/other-resources/john-f-kennedy-speeches/american-newspaper-publishers-association-19610427

“If the press is awaiting a declaration of war before it imposes the self-discipline of combat conditions, then I can only say that no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent.

It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions–by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader, and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.”

Articles like this are (unwittingly, I hope) performing a function designed to achieve one of the major goals of TFIC* in this era: to keep our eyes off the enormousness of the changes, in Human Life, being engineered by these psychopaths. The Trump-arc is meaningless. Of zero consequence. If you have invested in it, you have been duped. The “impeachment” nonsense functioned to stretch the Distraction beyond the limit of Trump’s term in office: it’s that simple (or even “schlocky,” as some might put it). Expect the Trump-based “news” to keep coming until new “Turrist Threat” soap opera can be put in place. Whatever the nature of the putative eye-grabbing narrative is, TFIC need a Distraction going until the finishing touches are being put on The Great Reset. This is bigger than any of the World Wars they engineered. We are living in an historical moment of chilling magnitude; the summoning of a new kind of BC/AD divide, in the Timeline, in which only one side of that divide will represent the recognizably human.

We are being patiently herded into a Digital Prison designed to rely on many of the scalable, updatable Apps too many of us Serfs are foolishly installing, and accepting into their lives, as I type this. “Fun Games!” like Pokemon Go were beta-testing traps; on the surface they’re like the puppy that a child-snatcher keeps in his van but they will become major part of the architecture of our incarceration. The Virtual and the Biological will fuse and our “Digital Twins” will be trapped on a nightmarishly gamified grid of tasks/ goals… compelled to acquire badges (to eat, for example). The time is not far off that this Digital Behavior-Grid will coordinate with drones and robots to police the (inferior) Biological components of our identities… in case some of us start getting a bit restive after the fact.

TFIC are openly aiming for an ETA of 2030.

“That’s all just blah blah blah from out-of-touch Geeks like Schwab and Gates; it’s not going to actually happen,” as I’ve seen some comment. I’m sure that’s what they would have said about the concept of a Global Lockdown, back in 2001 (or 2019), too.

And here we are.

The older among us will recognize this as Hellish; the younger (initially, at least) will embrace and enable this as “cool”. The trick is to keep most of us focused on anything but the patient construction of the Infrastructure (that’s what those 5G towers are all about, for example); keep people from realizing that the Lockdowns are a little too suspiciously convenient and triggered, also suspiciously, by the flimsiest excuse imaginable: some people were supposedly showing some symptoms of something or other during Flu season…

The plan is decades old (the fuckers even published books on their schemes! That’s how arrogant they are! They know we won’t read them!) and TFIC knew that at the very moment the plan began shifting in high gear, there would need to be a distraction huge enough to hold the attention of the vast majority of the TV-addicted audience.

Trump was built up to perform that function; he was given a vulgar, high-profile, Liberal-alienating Media presence and then made a Focus of Unprecedented Hatred for the entire planet; he was Orwell’s Emmanuel Goldstein on steroids. Anyone who considers Trump a “thwarted Savior” is just as delusional as anyone who considers him The Threat of Evil Personified. Trump had no power, was never in a position to drain any swamp, and it blows my mind (still) that so many vintage 9/11-Truthers put their trust and hopes in a man who was using Rudy “Key Actor in the 9/11 Plan” Giuliani as his lawyer! Whether Trump was witting or not (I still go back and forth on that one), he was nothing but a walk-on actor, on a suddenly-spotlit side-stage, among all the massive dramas directed by TFIC.

But re: “conspiracy theories”: my special disgust is reserved for all the Lefty-Progressive figures in the Arts, in Publishing, in Music, on Television, who affect a Power-to-the-People pose to build their brands… while completely falling into Herdthink Lockstep to the arrhythmic drum beat of the TFIC. “Power to the People” against what? Well, against “Gov” or “The Man”, right? And who is it that ordered and enforced The Lockdown punching millions of Serfs through Poverty’s paving stones? The Man, you Lefty-Progressive Quislings. Aka The Ruling Class. The class whose diktats and theories you support without a moment’s hesitation or critique. If The Ruling Class tells you “Erm, btw, Culture Butler: Covid replaced The Flu!”… well I guess that’s what happened, eh? So jump on Social Media and get to mocking the Working Class Heretics. Yeah, I know: what Middle Class Culture Butler would normally be caught dead mocking The Poor, right? Well, Covid gives them that license; Covid gives them a hall pass from the deplorable side of the Class War to the gentrified, virtue-signalling bit. (They’ve been to Uni, you see, so they grasp Upper Class Virology at a glance.)

Not only just “going along to get along” but actively supporting, amplifying and re-broadcasting every iota of Ruling Class Propaganda they’re given: these spineless Culture Butlers. I feel special contempt for the obedient “writers” because, as a book-mad kid, I thought that Writers wrote Their Truths from a lofty/eternal spot outside the Corrupt and Dishonest Norm; I thought of Writers as natural dissidents. Because so many in history were shamed/ banned/ imprisoned/ tortured/ executed.

The “writers” we have now wouldn’t risk a moment of rocking the boat. They will make a show of shaking a fist at an approved target like Trump, or in support of a viral gender-eradicating meme, or at the good old “Russia/ China” boogieman, or in very cautious support of Palestinians (though not to the extent that they realize that the Poor all over the West, just like the Palestinians were, are being gradually herded into Open Air prisons on the Gaza Model)… in other words: they are useless. No need to State-ban or Stasi-harass them at all.

TFIC’s new technique is just to buy them off (for as cheaply as grants, lit prizes, commissions, columns in pseudo-Lefty Zines, appearances on panel shows or carrot-dangling intimations of tenure, et al).

Just like “Communism” and “Homosexuality” were in the 1950s, and Civil Rights was in the 1960s, and (genuine) Feminism was in the 1970s, and 9/11 has been for nearly 20 years… COVID (fronting for The Great Reset) , now, is a parapolitical Litmus test dividing the “radicals” from The RADICALS. More and more have taken this test and failed it and that’s what we’re left with… all these Vichy Quisling Culture Butlers where once we assumed we had a kind of Culture.

Sickening.

Polly’s video on the Time article brought to my attention an essay by Sam Francis published in Chronicles 26 years ago, “Anarcho-Tyranny USA.”

Francis contrasts the eagerness to criminalize what had been innocent behavior with a reluctance to confront genuine criminality and undoubted threats to public order:

“This condition, which in some of my columns I have called ‘anarcho-tyranny,’ is essentially a kind of Hegelian synthesis of what appear to be dialectical opposites, the combination of oppressive government power against the innocent and the law-abiding and, simultaneously, a grotesque paralysis of the ability or the will to use that power to carry out basic public duties such as protection of public safety.”

This article is a distraction about another distraction.

There was a conspiracy regarding US elections – beyond the standard corruption of the vote by both parties and their Media, that is. The Transition Integrity Project (TIP). The Time article portrays as conspiratorial actions which are actually legal; this acts to distract from the real conspiracy. It also gets people hot and bothered from the provocative headline who don’t read the article. The fact that it came out in Time magazine (the CIA’s propaganda dump) should tell you all you need to know. See Whitney Webb’s Unlimited Hangout for her expose on the TIP.

No, it looks like it’s the RINOs who are being purged; but ain’t really much of a “war”.

The letter was signed by Karen Otto, Kinzinger’s cousin, and her husband, Greg. Nine other family members also signed their names but they were redacted by the Times. The Ottos wrote in postscript that there are ‘many more family members [who] feel the same way we do. They just didn’t have the courage to sign our letter or write their own letter. ‘Not us, we are so thoroughly disgusted with you.’

BTW: it’s all part of the plan!

President Donald on Wednesday evening referred to RINOs—an initialism for Republicans in Name Only—as “the lowest form of human life.”

“I’m not just running against Joe Biden,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Bullhead, Arizona, “I’m running against the left-wing mob and the left-wing media, the big tech giants, and I’m also running against the RINOs. Do you know what RINO is? A RINO may be the lowest form of human life.”

The Time magazine piece, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election”, doesn’t read quite as nefarious as the opening portrayal above might have it. In the spirit of exceptionalism which Time’s founder Henry Luce promoted on behalf of the good imperialists out to save the world under the campaigns of the American Century, the behind-the-scenes coalition here revealed was no sinister cabal but “an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted.” In short: “Democracy won in the end. The people prevailed.” Strike up the national anthem, shed a tear or two, etc. etc.

There can be any number of messages and spinoffs to this noble narrative, including on behalf of insidious purposes of the New American Century, in which today’s corporate state fascists lead ‘the people’ into the New Normal of global governance far beyond post-WWII neocolonialism:

It can encourage continuing coalitions between the players involved in this (bipartisan) election endeavor, from the AFL-CIO and U$ Chamber of Commerce to “people of color and local grassroots activists.” (Wouldn’t it be even nobler if all the open conspiracies of capital rule and bureaucracies of labor and bizzness along with NGOs of the nonprofit industrial complex with their special interest identity politics could cooperate, more than already, in universal vaccination campaigns?).

It can keep the Orange Man Bad Trump show going even longer, despite long ago having exceeded reason with Russiagate and his second impeachment just laid to rest, for all those diehard loyalists of partisan political theater distracted by its smoke-and-mirrors routines. (Meanwhile, the Great Reset, also proudly proclaimed by Time on its front cover, can keep merrily rolling along.)

And as noted in this article, it can keep sowing the seeds of confusion “to make it impossible for anyone to really know what to believe anymore,” just so the responsible authorities, behind the scenes, may continue to boldly lead us into the future. (And remember, Doktor Bill Gates has a “final solution” to all this mess.)

Whatever propaganda effects intended or achieved, one truth remains clear amid all the lies and their potential objectives: our lives are not our own until ‘we the people’ start choosing our own narratives in organized opposition to the “masters of mankind” (Adam Smith).

Lol the Beijing Biden trope doesn’t work! Trump has businesses in China and a bank account in China! ALL businesses NO MATTER who they are have to go through CPC Loopholes (not CCP as has been pushed by deep state propagandists)! Trump does it? Don’t care. Biden does it? Oooooh there must be something nefarious going on! Best part about anti Marxists and anti communists anti socialists is you haven’t got the foggiest idea what you’re arguing against! NONE! You just repeat CIA lies as if it’s gospel then turn up in places repeating it as if you’re so big brained you came to this conclusion yourself! You didn’t. Remember the west spent trillions on propaganda against primarily the USSR! And the vast majority of this was directed AT YOU!

I don’t see how it matters if the election was stolen when it’s staged theatrics and both parties work together against the people. Divide and conquer. 

An exhaustive Princeton study proved the US is not a democracy.  

Voting is a scam. If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal. The minute people cast their vote they are acquiescing their own power to unlawful and unjust rule by criminals.  The entire process of government is based on fraud and deception.

Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben says that if a liberal democracy can so easily declare emergency powers (what he calls a “state of exception” [to law]), nullifying the elected representatives and the legislature and become a totalitarian state, that they are already totalitarian states.

I expect since the military control the weather and Rockefeller et al control the electric grid they can create a situation where they commit asymmetrical warfare against the people with rolling blackouts that are completely unnecessary. I would guess it’s part of their “dark winter” strategy.

I didn’t watch the whole solutions video. I agree with Corbett in some of his research but I think we need to get to the core of the problem which is the deception by governments against people using legalese, maritime law, birth certificate fraud, printing money out of thin air, unlawful taxation, voting, no reciprocity, no accountability, public private partnerships, emergency laws and mandates etc.

Ian Rankin hasn’t been able to get close to his disabled son for almost a year now. I have a disabled son myself, although I have actually been allowed to approach him. He even had a visit to the parental home between lockdowns before the government screeched in to the rescue, seeing a mystical upsurge in The Evil Miasma invisible to those uninitiated in the masonic art of covid dowsing.   

Rankin now wants his son to be moved up the vaccine list. I’ve no idea why. The Great Old Ones have told us quite clearly that, even if you get your vax, it will make sweet fuck all difference. Their dowsing sticks will not settle till 2030. Give a variant or twelve.

Ken Lay of Enron was convicted by a Houston jury in 2006 on all counts for pulling the same kind of scam of totally unnecessary rolling blackouts here in California in 2000-2. I knew then that he died soon after of a reported heart attack, and by law the sentence could not be imposed.

What I found out just recently, by Texas law his estate, family, got to keep all his ill-gotten gains since sentence wasn’t imposed. Our money. Billions?

It can’t be repeated often enough, there is much to suggest that that California scam served as the template for this Magic Virus op, translated from the 5th largest economy to the entire global economy, by all that club of vile perps.

What the writer of Time magazine displays is arrogance and delusion of power.
The question we need to ask: Is the barb wire fence erected around the Capitol to keep the people out or is it a display of a bunker mentality and political paranoia?
Polls show the level of trust in Congress is at the bottom of the list, even below used car sales reps, while the military is near the top. The writer would like US to believe they have power over the people they don’t have. Politicians suspect they cannot command the military to go to war against the people for fear the soldiers will turn against the politicians. The article reveals an implicit fear the silent peripheral majority is not surrendering to MSM propaganda.
“All politics is local”. The alliance of Big Gov, Big Tech, Big Corp, the Global Reset have limited power over the politics of small, mid size communities, rural and middle America. The delusion of power is that once the confidence in the capital collapses, all hell will break loose…

There is a lot of talk about the truism that the more educated among us are the first to buy into this dangerous narrative. It has been chalked up to the fact that we receive an authoritarian education, regurgitating what our respected teachers and professors tell us, and then continue to do that after our schooling with our new-found authorities.

Another view, or perhaps a corollary, is that Trump and Trumpers are uneducated boors, by our lights, to be treated with disdain, as we have done since his election. (No disagreement here that he is a boor.) So, much to their Machiavellian credit, the new authorities (i.e., propagandists) have helped us to make the transference from Trump/Trumper to COVID denier. We are not so much virtue signalling as reminding ourselves and others that we are intelligent, classy people. It is, of course, utterly illogical, but the very image of ourselves, that we’ve assiduously built over the years, is at stake. Authoritarianism is a small price to pay.

Just a thought.

I think its a bit of a stretch to described the effort to secure the 2020 election as a ‘conspiracy’. Since the effort was not concerned with extra-legal or illegal actions its not a conspiracy, its just a recognition that there were flaws in the system that needed attention before they were exploited by a President and his supporters who were not interested in a democratic outcome but just wanted to stay in power regardless of the cost.

The article is worth reading. Its probably the most important piece of jornalism to come out of Time in a decade or more. My own take on this is that it was a lot of work to go to just to hold a routine election — and we’re probably going to have to do it again for 2022 and 2024.

Joint Cttee on Vaccination and Immunization: advice on priority groups for Covid vaccination, pub Dec 30, 2020. Report admits:

“Many individuals who are clinically extremely vulnerable will have some degree of immunosuppresson or be immunocomprommised and may not respond as well to the vaccine.”

Me: typical bureaucrat vagueness: “as well” as what?
Mike Robinson: why “may not”… because there was not enough information. It is clear the gov must answer.
Brian Gerrish: they had an objective

EXCESS MORTALITY – ONS STATS REVEAL TOLL AT HOME

Caveat: “This product has been developed to assist Defence understanding… [not necessarily] of civilian partners.”
Brian Gerrish: This caveat shows the military is operating in the civilian sphere independently of “civilian partners” ie government. Say you go in for a jab and the military chat you up, putting your data into intelligence cells of the British army.

Alex Thomson: St Andrews is Britain’s center of excellence for training spooks mid-career. Note also that Isaac Spring learned Zulu at SOAS. The British Army has long researched topics like mind control related to Zulu studies going back to the 1890s and Baden-Powell.

Brian Gerrish: We’ve watched 77th Brigade and 13th Sigint set up, now military intelligence is studying ethnicity and demographics. This is the UK population under the microscope of a paramilitary organization.

Alex Thomson: The next step is Operation Banner repatriated. This is reminiscent of army operations among the republican and nationalist populations in Ireland. The UK Gov commitment was that troops are not used in a domestic setting seems to apply only to policing on the streets, while the military J2 cells taking the lead in running and formulating policy so long as the military are not actually on the streets. A colleague from a NI J2 said they had a dossier inches thick on Gerry Adams but the government would not use it because he has human rights. The military are exempt from all human rights in order to build “information awareness”.

Vanessa Beeley: This is the terminology used by the BBC’s disinformation “journalist” Marianna Spring who was infiltrating Facebook groups. It is clear that the BBC is running an intelligence operation to corrall and build files on anti-vaxers for the future.

RUSSIA EQUIPS SYRIA AIR BASE TO TAKE NUCLEAR BOMBERS
LOSING PATIENCE WITH EU AND WESTERN STANCE
Vanessa Beeley: the timing of this report, coming after Biden inauguration is notable. Uptick in U.S. backing for Isis, Kurdish separatists trading Syrian oil, wheat, barley and withholding resources from civilians who had their water cut off by Turkey. This is about Tartus airbase being modernized. It’s 60 years old. Long runways to be upgraded.
U.S. coalition (UK, Fr) responded by relocating closer to largest oil well in NE Syria near Turkish border. Separatists offered to talk to Damascus. Intel sources and media reported U.S., UK, Fr intel talking to ISIS terrorists near U.S. base at Al-Tanf near border with Jordan discussing attacks on Russian and Syrian military.

SIMULTANEOUS DEVELOPMENTS
Iran and Israel also spar in the media. Israel is keen to block Biden returning to the nuclear deal.

Iran military drills on border with Iraq, where it influences forces like Ḥashd ash-Shaʿbī, PMC, that have been battling ISIS.
Assad-directed military force 16th Div, produces PR videos for social media suggesting they are mobilized.
Suggests forces are preparing to thrust further into Idlib, to liberate territory and prevent Turkey annexing Syrian territory in the NW. Turkey has been building breeze-block shanty towns in alliance with HTS and Al Qaeda.
Lavrov’s presser with Jordan FM was extraordinary, warning against assuming that Ru will do nothing because they are civilized people: we are a threat, don’t take us for fools. This language is mirrored across Russian diplomatic sphere.

“Liberal democracy breaks down when frightened majorities demand mass coercion of their fellow citizens, and call for our personal spaces to be invaded. These demands are invariably based on what people conceive to be the public good. They all assert that despotism is in the public interest.A threshold has now been crossed. A big taboo has gone. Other governments will say that the only question that matters is whether it works and whether they can “get away with it”. In a world ruled by the empire of fear, the answer will usually be “yes”.

The Prime Minister claims to believe in liberty and to find the current measures distasteful. Actions speak louder than words, and I am afraid that I do not believe him. He is too much of a populist to go against public sentiment. He lacks the moral and political stature to lead opinion rather than follow it.”

Alex Thomson: Lord Sumption and the higher ranks know the modern British state depends on the Crown concession that a statute would mirror something that would previously have been done by royal prerogative through the privy council.
This is coming unstuck. This is stripping away the illusion that governments are in parliament. They are separate things. Parliaments are there to hold government to account. We would be better off with the U.S. system so that we understand that the secretaries of state are not us.

Thank you, MoneyCircus, for confirming what I posted on earlier threads. Annual flu vaccine was becoming too cheap for Big Pharma — only 1 shot per treatment at $3 per shot. High pressure salesmanship has raised the price 24-fold. Con-19 vaccine: 2 shots per treatment at $36 per shot.

I suspect the Russian Orthodox vaccine will be cheaper as well as be safer.

The author is careful to mention only “legal” conspiracies, probably to avoid being labeled. IMO, this selection was won by President Alzheimers through voting felony fraud in the “swing states”. No major court was willing to hear the case for this. The AG of Texas brought a suit to the Supreme Court about this and something like 17 other state AG signed on to it. The SCOTUS rejected the case 7-2 on the basis that these AG’s didn’t have “standing,” meaning that these top state legal officials and their states had no significant damage to themselves that the presidential selection was reversed by criminal fraud. It’s so stupid that it’s almost funny.

I am an algorist and I also regard Trump as controlled opposition. Wilbur Mills, the head of the North American Rothschild operation bought him (and a player to be named later) when they pulled him out of bankruptcy not to mention his infamous ultrazionist cult son-in-law making Middle East policy.. IMO, when he is not being controlled opposition, he is busy being a useful idiot. He was incredibly ineffective in every opportunity to reverse the scamdemic’s destruction of the economy through total violation of the Constitution as well as his legal challenges to reverse the election fraud. I would bet the farm that his handlers ordered him to Tweet repeatedly in favor of the use of HCQ in order to turn the question of its effectiveness from an investigation using real science to a political shitshow. Under USA law if HCQ had been shown to have significant efficacy as a treatment against (as I personally would but it) pulmonary viral infections including the purported cv-1984, then none of these fake vaccines could have been rolled out until the conclusion of positive phase 3 trials, i.e. at least 3 years, probably a lot more.

I agree with you in as much as if we were not being bombarded with toxins including these “vaccines,” then these toxic medications would not be necessary. But we have to deal with the world we have. If a loved one or friend of mine was showing symptoms of a severe viral respiratory non-bacterial infection, I would treat her with HCQ and zinc if I could get it, or with ivermectin which I already have in a large supply. I am sure that your life style is so heathy from your comments and attitude, that there is absolutely no danger of you or yours succumbing to a respiratory ailment, so the question whether to use a potentially toxic pharmaceutical doesn’t really involve you.

If you accept – which, granted, most people do not – that the skies are filled with toxic heavy metals and polymers thanks to the climate engineers; then you would also have to accept that many respiratory problems are such that they cannot be relieved with anything pharmaceutical.

Chelators, antioxidants, terpenes, flavonoids, phenols, anthocyanins, mitochondrial support factors if you’re dealing with toxicity.

In addition to your usual essential factors.

There’s a big reason why marijuana itself (rather than just cbd or thc) is so effective, because that stuff I mentioned is very marginalized as pharma is always in the retarded single factor mindset. And of course, they want synthetics.

I was expressing doubts about HCQ on here last year, and getting roundly criticised for it by one or two HCQ zealots. Since then it’s kind of “taken off”, at least in some circles, although Ivermectin seems to be now flavour of the month. I don’t know much about the latter, but as it’s primarily an antiparasitic, I suspect it’s also toxic, at least in high doses. And this is the problem with most pharmaceutical drugs, which are for the most part, concocted in the laboratory.

You could say that HCQ is related to quinine which is found in nature, however, I’m pretty sure HCQ itself is not found in nature.

My objections to HCQ were partly based on information put out by this organisation:

https://quinism.org/press-releases/dangers-of-antimalarial-quinolines-against-covid-19/

David Crowe interviewed Remington Nevin, their spokesman, a few times.

https://infectiousmyth.podbean.com/e/the-infectious-myth-dangers-of-chloroquine-and-hydroxychloroquine-with-remington-nevin/

https://infectiousmyth.podbean.com/e/the-infectious-myth-dr-remington-nevin-on-the-quinolone-antimalarial-drugs-072418/

(You will see that the two older interviews are well pre-“Covid” – Nevin has consistently warned about the dangers of this family of drugs ).

Some may accuse him of having a vested interest. I don’t know whether he does or not, but I certainly don’t. I just happen to believe it’s wrong to use something which is potentially toxic, when there are non-toxic alternatives, which also have benefits over and beyond “Covid-19” or any other viral complaint.

You, CatCollector, have mentioned Vitamin D, and of course I am in favour of that, but I also strongly favour high-dose Vitamin C.

I always qualify “Vitamin D” in that it should be Vitamin D3 ( Cholecalciferol ), although I think that is what is normally sold these days, but it is worth being specific because a lot of early trials of Vitamin D featured the inferior (or less useful) Vitamin D2 ( ergocalciferol ).

And I always mention that if you supplement with vitamin D3, you should also supplement with Vitamin K2 (in both its MK-4 and MK-7 forms, if possible). For more on this see: Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox: How a Little-Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life” by Kate Rheaume-Bleue ).
Also extremely important is Vitamin A. Vitamins A, D3 and K2 work synergistically together, as mentioned in the above book. You can use supplements, but as I am neither vegan nor vegetarian, I believe I can get sufficient from my diet (e.g. eggs, cheese, butter, liver). I believe it is much less easy to get sufficient Vitamin C, D3 or K2 from food (or sunlight in the case of D3) that I supplement those.

You could argue that vitamin supplements are (mostly) not natural, but synthesised in a laboratory / factory. There are some vitamin C products that are ultimately plant-based, but I would have to concede that most of it is synthesised, but I am confident that the synthesised versions are identical to the active vitamin found in nature, i.e. in plants. (I know that some people dispute this). In an ideal world, we would be able to consume all of our required vitamins and minerals from our normal diet, but it’s not an ideal world, and supplementing synthesised vitamins is a compromise that I’m prepared to make. They are certainly safer and healthier than pharmaceuticals.

We could talk about minerals, which are also vital, but that’s a big subject in its own right, so I’ll leave it here.

I suppose I should add a disclaimer that I have no connection with any seller or manufacturer of vitamins or minerals, except as a normal customer.

Good post, but I’m with CatCollector. HCQ may be useful to the deficient and sick patient as a zinc ionophore. Probably more useful: just zinc, Mg, and vitamins A,C,D. Of course it would be ridiculous for our health gestapo to consider such quackery as a viable treatment. This was all clearly outlined in Goosestep I mean Lockstep 2010 and Event 201.

To quote active and retired defense officials — “The military does not have a role in the election transition”. The situation in DC is complicated because having experienced the unthinkable there’s a conflict between turning the Capitol area into a sort of Green Zone and the tradition of open access to what are essentially buildings that belong to the people. This may require extra open security in the short term but its wholly undesirable.

Joe Biden has a lot of resources to call on, including past Presidents if need be. Kamela Harris is new to Federal administration but she’s no political neophyte, she’s actually a very sharp and smart operator. Do not underestimate her.

There is no democracy left in the US. The US is an oligarchy and has been an oligarchy from about the Clinton administration to the present. BIG MONEY RULES IN THE US. Period. End of sentence. Little, if anything, really, changed under Trump. He never had any chance to alter truly significant policies, as most of his party are, just like all democrats, completely coopted by Wall Street, war corporations, big oil, Israel, the Saudis….

The US has been an oligarchy much longer than that. But during the Cold War, the oligarchy was willing to compromise with some semblance of a welfare state, however limited it was in the US. Since Reagan, oligarchic rule has become transparent, at least for anyone paying attention to the obvious. Now the democratic trappings are being shed in favor of open totalitarian rule.

The public has been broken in nicely. Of course, many of them, perhaps even the vast majority, may doubt the covid con. Indeed, the vast majority may be waking up to this devastating unprecedented assault on the working class by the rulers. Here’s the genius of the move: there has always been a big difference between everyone’s personal beliefs and everyone’s socially stated beliefs.

For example:

At the time of the witch hunts, many may have thought, “Fuck! We have a shower of bastards who just have to shout witch, and everyone panics, everyone is desperate to dodge the blame, and perfectly innocent people are being burned and drowned.”

But what they said was, “Witch! That bitch over there is a witch! I saw her fucking with Satan!”

So now, many admittedly may have been taken in by those awfully concerned news announcers urging everyone to stay away from everyone else ‘cause there’s an evil and profit threatening bug going around and it’s OK to stay at home ‘cause only those big capitalists are going to get shafted etc.

But now they are pondering a thought experiment. “If you wanted to take the divide-and-conquer move to the ultimate level, then what better way than a deadly pandemic that means people can no longer simply talk to each other, staff teams cannot meet, faces can’t even be seen so you can’t read expressions. And everyone is stuck with their TV sets telling them their words for today and giving them their instructions for today etc. And all the services are being run down and all the people can’t work, and this virus can have as many variants as you want because now the whole world has been turned into pathetic hypochondriacs. Etc.”

But what they say is, “Stay safe. Stay at home. Protect the NHS.”

Sorry about this. I tried to be brief but it kept going out of control.

Philip Roddis is the owner of a blog called Steel City Scribblings. He is a Marxist writer who I had a decent enough correspondence with until covid hit. He was the first one, in my experience, who linked covid scepticism with libertarianism which provoked an intemperate response from me, and we had a bit of a spat about it, then kinda made up but ….

I don’t want to draw this out but it was through him that I really got to know first-hand about the odd Leftist approach to covid – the blasé assumption that the virus had to be the big killer because capitalism was apparently bound to serve up something like this sooner or later. Therefore, everyone sceptical had to be a capitalist apologist.

Philip did give some exposure to sceptical doctors but he has an infuriating tendency to continue to use the cliched conspiracy phobic spiel re: sceptics i.e. that they are “fanatics”, “part of a church”, “utterly certain they are right” etc. – which amounts to the old reversal of the burden of proof. It’s the claim the virus is the big killer that is not only bellowed with certainty but has been rammed down everyone’s throat from every media channel for the last ten months.

In any case I argued with him a few times but generally got the silent treatment from both him and his commenters. These commenters were generally insufferable. Philip does at least have manners. The others are hopeless. Again, it was a learning curve for me. I became familiar with that aggravating tendency of some Leftists to go all snooty and superior while dredging up oceans of defensive impenetrable drivel.

Anyway, eventually Philip demonstrated the other tactic used by the Left i.e. totally ignoring the virus. When I tentatively raised the issue, he said he was looking at “other stuff”. That was when I decided to cut the umbilical, so to speak.

My outlook is still mainly Marxist but I have come to see that there has been a huge psychological “sculpting” movement going on to exercise an Orwellian removal of the word “conspiracy” from serious discourse and this has affected the Left more than any other group. Hence the ludicrous gullibility of the Left re: covid (and a few other things).

Many thanks George! A bit like “If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Letter”, said by somebody or other:
https://quoteinvestigator.com/2012/04/28/shorter-letter/

Yes, I think I have noticed that aversion to the merest hint of “conspiracy” among people I know, who may not be explicitly Marxist, but whom I’ve always thought of as leftist, if not Leftist.

I have actually been slightly reluctant to commit all the way to the idea of a full-blown conspiracy, thinking it of it more like a combined effort of semi-independent opportunists, who took a chance, and for whom the cards seem to keep falling the right way.

But the longer it goes on, the more I am forced to think that there is something more going on, although I’m still not quite ready to go full-blown Corbett, not yet anyway.

Your witty quote “If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Letter”, certainly applies to the following. Apologies in advance. (And the quote is spot on. It actually takes much longer to write a shorter note – seeing as you have to condense it all.)

One powerful prop in the conspiracy phobia patter is the straw man projection which I would call “Grand Conspiracy”. I put this to Philip, and I see he is still, as it were, “quoting me on it”. (I have so often felt tempted to comment again on his site, but I always resist. I find the internet to be extremely anxiety producing when you know you’ve stuck a comment in to a site where you know you are going to get flack – or possibly just ignored.)

Anyway – Grand Conspiracy is the theory that one centralised group have been in control – or almost completely in control – of the world for decades, centuries, perhaps even millennia. An obvious example is David Icke. It’s the kind of theory that has an appeal – almost a religious appeal. Indeed, I think a lot of fundamentalist websites really go in for this. Satan as the ultimate conspirator.

I don’t posit any such group. But there are conspiracies and therefore “conspiracy theory” is a valid line of argument. Nor does it oppose Marxism. You can have conspiracies motivated by class interests. Indeed, when capitalists, who normally compete against each other, find their whole system in trouble, it is only logical for them to join forces and form temporary groups who conspire.

We have a global capitalist system with several capitalist centres throughout the world. Now I have been hearing for decades now – and from Marxists – that there is an impending crash the likes of which has not been experienced before. Under these circumstances, I think the various capitalist centres have formed more coherent units than usual for a “big push”. They will be working independently from each other, but all are aiming to protect themselves and their places in the global racket. And the coronavirus is a gift – by which I most definitely don’t mean that this virus has just happened, and they are capitalising on it. (That has always been the conspiracy phobic responses which is less than useless since, if the threat is real, it doesn’t matter to note the elite are using it. The reaction implied by this is to say, “Oh yes those bastards are using covid …but oh my God, people are dying and what can we do but stay under the bed!”)

The existence of Event 201 last year shows that this virus move has been in the cards for a while – as a “thought experiment”. The Wuhan outbreak seems to have provided the green light for the global manoeuvre – which, as I have said, isn’t totally coordinated from one centre but being used by various centres. That explains the difference in approaches between the various nations.

(As for the actual truth about this virus, Mike Yeadon gave a ponderable account: covid is a flu variant which, like all such, is deadly but nowhere near as deadly as is made out. I suspect there was no reason at all to draw particular attention to it – apart from the benefit it has clearly provided to the ruling class through this globally reaching scare tactic.)

The Left – or rather “the Left” – has provided an indispensable role here. And it is indicative of a vast change in rhetoric whereby much hated “no alternative” neoliberalism has suddenly been ditched for a “no alternative” fight against covid. The world has, as it were, moved onto its Left foot. This caused – allegedly – by the strength of gathering protest movements. A laughable notion. Trotsky once said (paraphrasing) “The ruling class has never so much as yielded an inch unless it was being held by the throat”. It has been decades since it has been held by the throat. And certainly not now. (cf. the WSWS’s ludicrous claim that lockdown was forced on European nations through wildcat strikes, bearing in mind that the yearlong UK miners’ strike in the 80s lasted a year and achieved fuck all.)

But the Left’s unhesitating acquiescence to the covid narrative is something which I think can only be explained by intelligence operatives working within.

‘The Ruling Class’ is surely central to any Marxist thinking. What do Marxists think the Ruling Class is? And how does it operate?

I would guess that Marxism has always sought to ‘reify’ (thingify or make impersonal as an inevitable force of history) what a very small section of quite real related people are doing for personal reasons of greed and power without moral constraint. Destruction of shared moral belief and social cohesion (the European Christian tradition) is central to how they operate.

Solidarity has always been the central issue in how the oppressed can rise. Religion has been one of the greatest devices for solidarity – although it can be used for repression as well.

One drawback in many Left groups is that they don’t have a positive plan for the system they want to put in place. Marx himself felt that this was something that would have to be done on an ad hoc basis. “You need to work it out for yourselves” is however not a great draw.

Most are happy enough to fit in with what is already there as long as this is what they have been brought up in i.e. it isn’t just a matter of talking about what is “bearable”. The latter is decided by upbringing. People raised to be slaves think that slavery is their natural condition. Thus most – probably all – revolutions come about through people who have been deprived of something.

That, at the moment, is clearly us. We know we are being shafted. But what to do? The rulers have created the most perfect divide-and-rule ever through covid. I think most are waking up to it. But even then, they are resistant to the idea that they are being shafted. It’s too disturbing. It requires them to take a path they never took before i.e. open rebellion. But at the moment there is too much division.

Religion would be an unstoppable force for cohesion. And that is why the rulers have constantly demonised it. Whether it is still an option in a largely secular society is another matter.

Time magazine was of course founded by Skull and Bones’ Henry Luce. C.D. Jackson jumped from Time into the OSS suggesting it has been joined at the hip with US intelligence from the get-go.

Time pushed Jackson Pollock when the CIA decided they wanted abstract expressionism lauded. This much is admitted in the mainstream book by Frances Stonor Saunders although it looks like a limited hangout when it gets to the question of what the motive was. Time’s partner magazine Life kicked off the psychedelic era when they published the story about R. Gordon Wasson and magic mushrooms. This, we now know, was MK Ultra sub-project 58 (out of about 150 they’ve fessed up to). The documentation says Wasson’s involvement was “unwitting” which considering he was a Wall St banker and George Kennan wrote that Wasson tried to recruit him into the CIA seems to stretch credulity.

Lovely to see they’ve found a new use for such an old asset after half a century’s irrelevancy.

The whole of humanity is in a state of hypnosis.
A hypnosis created by fascist politicians, oligarchs, big pharma, MSM.
They are all involved in a subtle conspiracy, to oppress, to enslave, to dominate the individual.
Spiritual enslavement is the most dangerous slavery because it is not coming from outside.
Your hands are not handcuffed.
The chains are not visible, they are deep in your mind.
They have been perpetually enforced by politicians using behavioral, psychological, repetitive suggestion and lies.
Reinforced by MSM talking heads.
Cemented in place by criminal Stasi policing tactics, fully backed up by the so-called justice system, using punishment and fear to create total compliance and obedience.
Remember, they proclaim, we are recording all of your criminal actions, names and addresses, and be warned, you will face our full justice!
There used to be political dependence all over the world.
Those empires have long since collapsed and that has given a great illusion to nations, that now, people have freedom.
And whenever some illusion is beautiful you want it to be true, you want to believe in it, but whether you believe in it or not, an illusion is an illusion, it makes no difference.
There was never freedom, only license.
Listening to all the politicians, the MSM false narratives created a certain kind of illusion, a certain feeling of freedom, which was never really there.
How the blind were leading the blind.
It is a strange world that we live in.
The society wants to dominate, the privileged classes want to dominate, to enslave, to oppress, to exploit.
They would like you to remain completely unaware of yourself.
Society is concerned only with making an unconscious slave of you, not a free individual – a revolutionary, because it is helpful to them.
It is easy to dominate a slave, it is almost impossible to dominate a person of self knowing. 
The reality is humanity has lived only under the illusion of freedom.
Believing themselves to be free.
There is no such thing as freedom as far as our history up to now is concerned.
Slaveries have changed, new forms of slavery have taken their place, but freedom has not yet happened.
Freedom is still a dream.
We have to understand how to transcend the mind that the politicians have programmed in us all, that is only for war, destruction, slavery and violence.
These criminal politicians have come to the end of their time, so now they don’t know what else to do except to destroy humanity itself.
Unless we can create a world which is really free, we are living only in an illusion of freedom.
And I don’t see there is any freedom anywhere.
Freedom is the greatest value and the greatest achievement in life.
Everyone should be free from all kinds of fetters, political, economic, psychological, spiritual.
Yet your whole life, as it is, is approved by the society, by the state, by religion, it is based on self-ignorance.
You live without knowing yourself, because the society doesn’t want you to know yourself.
It is too dangerous for the society.
An individual who knows themselves is bound to be rebellious.
Try this?
When you look in the mirror, it is not you who is reflected in the mirror, because you are not the seen but the seer.
You are not that which is reflected in the mirror, you are that who is looking at the reflection, who is watching the reflection.
You are always the seer, and the seer cannot be reduced to the seen.
Who is this seer hidden behind everything?
You are subjectivity, and you can never become an object.
You are irreducible, so how to encounter oneself?
To know oneself is the most difficult thing.
It should not be so.
It should be just the opposite, the most simple thing.
But it is not, for many reasons.
It has become so complicated, and you have invested so much in self-ignorance that it seems almost impossible to turn back, to return to the source, to encounter oneself.
First, you have to move from the outer reflective, the mirror-like world that surrounds you.
All is reflections.
The whole work, is to erase the past from your mind and give you a here-now-present orientation to look at reality with clean eyes.
And your future will be golden if your present is clean.
Out of this clean presence will arise a new future, which will not have any continuity with the past, it will be a quantum leap.
We have to create an atmosphere in the world against all forms of enslavement.
And the only way is to raise the consciousness of the people.
All the people of the world.
That is the only hope for which people of awakened consciousness go on working.
In spite of constant failure, in spite of humanity’s ignorance, and persistent retardedness, they continue.
Their hope is infinite and their patience knows no limits.

True. But “’twas ever thus”. It has just scleroticized ever more through generations. The good ‘ol analyticity introduced by the philosophers of Ancient Greece is the powerful light to shine on any and all of this, and it’s been available for millennia.

If more people, especially Americans, were to exercise critical thought skills, those skills would increase and the Big Lie and all its seams would surely begin to appear glaringly.

O/T Connecting Dots.

The blatant rigging of elections — the 2016 primary by the Democratic National Committee and the 2020 U.S. presidential election — showed what’s become of the rule of law.

Americans shared the experience of the Belgian people after the Dutroux scandal, which led to massive protest. It took the Belgian system a decade to convict Marc Dutroux in 2004 for the kidnap and rape of six girls, four of whom were wrapped in plastic and buried alive.

Evidence emerged that politicians and officials were involved in pedophilia and murder at the highest levels. DNA evidence suggested that dozens of people visited Dutroux’s torture cell. Hundreds of human hairs were never accounted for. Yet police managed to pin it on a lone, unemployed electrician, even though Dutroux insisted he abducted girls with the help of police, supplying the elite of the Belgian establishment.

In 2009 Wikileaks published the Dutroux Dossier, showing financial transactions, crisscrossing Europe, with currencies coming from as far as Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Dutroux’s wife received hundreds of thousands of francs and bought 10 homes.

Witnesses — even the chief prosecutor in Liege — died at an alarming rate. Hardly surprising, given the kind of people they named. The former Sec Gen of NATO, Willy Claes was identified as present during alleged torture, sexual abuse and murder of children.

The original judge in the Dutroux investigation, Judge Connerotte, said mafia groups had seized control of the “key institutions of the country” and that “high-level murder plots” had stopped his investigation into a “child-sex mafia.”

WHY IS THIS RELEVANT TO ID2020, VACCINES AND THE GREAT RESET?

Amazon is supplying its facial recognition software to police, despite publicly suspending the project, under cover of a charity cut-out dedicated to “protecting” children.

Its “Rekognition” software has been channeled into “Spotlight” by Thorn, a charity headed by actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Thorn partners with the NGO Polaris, which runs the U.S. National Trafficking Hotline and is part of the Clinton Global Initiative, which was originally financed by Jeffrey Epstein.

Recall that a CGI associate Laura Silsby was jailed for the kidnapping of 33 children in Haiti. However, she was freed with the help of Bill and Hillary Clinton. She now runs the company that puts out Amber Alerts, warnings of children who are missing or kidnapped.

Thorn provides Amazon’s facial recognition software free to U.S. law enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security, which has just employed WHO propaganda chief and behavioural scientist Cass Sunstein.

Spotlight was co-built by Digital Reasoning, financed by the CIA’s investment arm In-Q-Tel. Digital Reasoning’s CEO is a former Goldman Sachs banker and member of the Carlyle Group which owns Landmark Aviation which was used for CIA renditions and torture missions. Landmark also took over operations at Ohio airport, used by Leslie Wexner and Jeffrey Epstein, from the CIA’s Southern Air Transport. Ohio is a leading child trafficking hotspot. Spotlight’s other co-creator, Amazon, is a major CIA contractor, providing the internet cloud for all 17 U.S. intel agencies.

Some flights logged by Jeffrey Epstein shared tail numbers with CIA planes. One of Epstein’s sexual conquests and later his pilot hailed from the Balkans. Nada Marcinkova is now CEO of Aviloop.

Spotlight is also supported by Google, funded into existence by the CIA’s In-Q-Tel, and by The McCain Institute. The late Sen. John McCain’s widow Cindy helped found the McCain Institute’s “Combating Human Trafficking” initiative. She once said of Epstein: “We all knew about him [Epstein]. We all knew what he was doing.”

Thorn board member Ray Chambers, co-founded a youth-focused “America’s Promise Alliance” with former Sec of State Colin Powell. Chambers was UN Sec Gen Special Envoy for Health in Agenda 2030. He launched the End Malaria Council with the Gates Foundation.

Thorn board member Joe Lonsdale co-founded Palantir, whose only client in its first four years was the CIA. It is successor PROMIS software, whose theft and sale involved Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s father. Like PROMIS, Palantir tracks anything that moves and predicts future actions. Lonsdale was accused of rape and abuse by a former girlfriend, who modeled for Abercrombie Kids, then owned by Lesie Wexner.

Kushner also got his start by modeling for Wexner’s Abercrombie.

Ernie Allen, Thorn board member and its “child protection adviser”, is also a McCaine Institute board member. He was longtime president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Allen claims credit for digitizing the center, aided by Microsoft, which has been recently criticized for access to child pornography on its Bing search engine.

In 1996, NCMEC expanded internationally at the behest of then-President of Belgium Jean-Luc Dehaene as a direct result of the “Dutroux Affair.” The partner organization ICMEC was formally launched by Hillary Clinton.

In 2012, The New York Times revealed that a website called “Backpage” was “the biggest forum for sex trafficking of under-age girls in the United States.” Its parent company, Village Voice Media, was owned by Goldman Sachs and that “one of the biggest allies [of Backpage] is the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children” and told CNN that BackPage and the NCMEC “work together.”

According to WaPo, “Backpage.com says it reports to NCMEC at least 300 ads a month that it believes involves minors. NCMEC officials confirm that number — and say some months it receives as many as 800 referrals from Backpage.com” The article also noted that NCMEC referred to Backpage’s attempts to reduce ads tied to juvenile sex trafficking as “inadequate.”

At the time of NCMEC’s cooperation with Backpage, the organization admitted that “up to 71 percent of suspected child trafficking reports involved Backpage,” with Allen having stated in official testimony that “2,695 cases of suspected trafficking were reported by Backpage to officials in 2011 alone,” per TIME magazine.

Thorn’s founder, Ashton Kutcher is also an investor in an AI-powered police dispatch system used by 70 police departments. Other investors in Mark43 include former CIA Director David Petraeus, who owns much of the Balkans telecoms network. Kutcher and Bezos also invest in Airbnb.

WHO IS WATCHING?

Lawyer Nila Bala recently noted “surveillance is not just about being watched, but about who is watching,” especially in school settings. Thorn’s Spotlight may saved trafficked children but its ties to intelligence, Silicon Valley billionaires and dubious “child protection” advocates and organizations are too extensive to ignore.

Thorn is launching software to scans children’s irises. This scanning has first to be done by parents or schools before the scans are entered into a police database.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) — an NGO with a history of sexually abusing refugees — is also backed by Thorn partners. The IRC is piloting iris scans for refugee children as part of the ID2020 initiative backed by Bill Gates, that will be tied to an individual’s finances, vaccination records and more.

Given the links of many of these “philanthropic” bodies and child protection agencies to trafficking and abuse there can only be suspicion at their involvement with any pretext for facial recognition and digital tracking.

The trick that Alex Jones mastered so well with such skill and genius was to be the conduit for revelations fed him from the CIA, about the CIA’s own crimes, and activities, which were then attributed to the democratic establishment, making them look like the bad guys.
Jones exposed loads of CIA false flags, with information fed him by the CIA. Crimes which were then attributed to politicians and democratic institutions. That is how you destroy a fragile democracy. Its a classic burning down of the Reichstag operation. I wonder why I write this under your comments.

So many politicians and public figures with charities to “save the children”, “fight trafficking,”… McCain, Blair, Clinton, Epstein, Kutchner, with help from King Bill’s Microsoft and Amazon’s roving eye… placing their world-saving ID and tracking systems at the service of finding kids.

a) They are all, by choice and coincidence, fascinated by children, trafficking and sex.
b) Such a problem exists… so who is doing it?
c) Such a problem does not exist but the CIA made them donate their millions to an imaginary cause.

Either they’re all obsessed with it — or the CIA made ’em do it. Which is it?

Funny how all these politicians and celebs are concerned about child sex — but if ordinary Internet posters write about pedophilia or abuse it’s all a conspiracy theory and “satanic panic”.

If it isn’t real — why do these informed, connected powerful people think it’s a thing?

All stuff which people should start looking into.

A question or thought for people. How much is child trafficking involved in government, regime change wars and even Covid19 policy?

It’s all in the mix of agendas, possibly a very significant one. The abuse of children by the elites is being concealed among many seemingly ‘good causes’. Imagine the extent of it and times by 10 and you might get close. Child sex abuse has always been like mental health in lockdown. It’s huge but no one will admit it.

Epstein was murdered by nitrous oxide inserted into the ventilation system of his cell which explains the fact that the guards were asleep and a nasty prison employee murdered Epstein, the order to do so came from the deep state.

The whole point of the Great Reset is to tag and trace the entirety of the Herd, so that they may be enslaved to whatever devices and purposes the techno-masters see fit for them. Sex is just one of those uses, and creeps like Gates and Schlawb are very much invested in having a searchable global database of fresh meat, pre-implanted with kill-switch injectables, who will have to service the techno-masters or else be deprived their meager rations of blockchain scrip.

I find it difficult to understand who is fighting who In your scenario, and why? Both the Democrats and the Republicans have the same bosses and the same aims. They both back the military and they both back imperialism, they both back their donors and they both ‘farm’ the population for what wealth they have left.

Who is opposed to who and why? You don’t come close to answering that question, I think because the answer is there are NOT two sides. There is one side. The most you can say is perhaps we have two mafia ‘families’ fighting for power, but I don’t even believe that is proven as they swap power & positions with great ease.

It is a pantomime, and the party that best fits the rolling strategy of the deep state wins the election. This time around Biden will make a more convincing performance of massive state spending than trump would have done. trump made deregulation and tax cuts for billionaires look consistent.

Every US election is rigged, the main job of these fake politicians is to make it look like a democracy as the Corporate fascist dictatorship rolls out it’s plans.

True but curiously the American Democratic party was never traditionally left-wing or socialist in the way us europeans would understand. If you look at the 19th Century Democrats, they were as they are now, the party of money and Corporate, power, they were never the party of the people. As we pretend today they should be. The closest they ever got to a ‘people’s party’ was the popularist’s of the 19th century.

Hello Raptorjo: You said: “If you look at the 19th Century Democrats, they were as they are now, the party of money and Corporate, power, they were never the party of the people.”

Exactly! I attempted to make this point a couple weeks ago, and was shot down in flames. The “democratic” party has been about as democratic as Goldman Sacks. In true Orwellian style, the cover story is only believed by morons, and the real story remains hidden in corporate conference rooms.

And every one is invested in the hoax.

“There’s never been a better moment for the Democrats to strike in dealing what they hope will be the death blow to their most important opponents’ morale…” is a fine and dandy statement, as long as we understand that the Dems vs the Repubs is phony baloney. We the disorganized, demoralized, disunited people are the enemy to the ruling class (and all of its players).

“It’s seemingly inexplicable why they’d do this…” Whatever the reason, and I think the author has the right idea about what it is (further chaos with the result that the police State is further entrenched or freed), it’s certainly a grand act of ‘attitude’, otherwise known as giving the finger to someone.

Democracy in huge nation states is really a myth. How could it be otherwise? The balance of masses against such suffocating power is too unequal. If you don’t have benevolent oligarchs nothing good happens.

But as an American “registered” as a Democrat since my 1st baby steps, literally, let me advise Europeans who still don’t get it: no good thing in USA Inc has ever happened but through Democrat accomplishment or proposals, or by their lending ear to populist or popular grievances.

ONLY they have “fielded” the benevolent oligarchs, like FDR and Kennedys, Jack, Bobby, and Teddy. Jefferson and Lincoln were of that lineage, though as prequels, a “rose by another name”. In that last hundred years Republicans have never even made a decent proposal unless all their arms were severely twisted by Democrats, or as some means to a skanky end.

“It is my strong conviction that a realist conception of human nature should be made the servant of an ethic of progressive justice, and not turned into a bastion of conservatism, especially one that defends unjust privileges.”

-Reinhold Niebuhr

That thinking might make headway in Canada under a Tommy Douglas who brought them healthcare worthy of the name and his minister’s “Social Gospel” but his kind would be crushed here by the entrenched USA Inc flatter than the Kennedy bros.

I wasn’t saying that I liked that reality or anything about it.

Au contraire, it’s a sham of a system. But I’m not sure I agree with the word “capitulated”.

Does a foetus “capitulate” to being in the womb?

It’s crucial to any hopes of deliverance from this tiered slavery to have “enough” citizens realize that the whole process here has been massively manipulated from cradle to grave and that democracy here has been, at most, “embryonic” and chronically aborted.

Other versions of that are not “histories” but fairy tales told to the oft gulled.

Grasping that truth has to be the founding awareness of an awakened public.

And good luck with *that* process!

But it has to start somewhere.

As JFK said it in his Inaugural Address 60 years and a month ago…

“…perhaps not accomplished in a hundred years…but let us begin.”

I found his words stirring then, at my 9 years old.

(Now, at 68, I can at least see more plainly that any of our most real hopes lie beyond.

And any “conceivable” solutions *here* likewise *originate* beyond.

Just saying…)

Just stumbled on an article that makes me realise that on top of being incredibly wealthy and powerful, Bill Gates is also just the luckiest guy in the world; talk about being in the right place at the right time! Look at what he had the smart fortune to invest in way back in 2016, literally YEARS before there would be a worldwide need for it:
