WATCH: States of Emergency

As we enter the Age of Biosecurity, we find ourselves living in a state of emergency.

But what does this actually mean? And what does it imply about our way forward?

When the state is deemed rogue, anti-humanity, oppressive, corrupt, totalitarian, ‘necessity’, as labeled by said state, becomes null & void due to the government’s illigetimacey. And,when government becomes totalitarian, it is the moral-impeative to be totally and violently eradicated; since the only effective way to deal with totalitarianism is it’s violent and total eradication.

This article provides an entree for me to promote a very important new book titled, strangely enough:

States of Emergency: Keeping the Global Population in Check

by a Dutchman, Kees van der Piil

An excerpt from a review provides a good summation:

” …the ruling oligarchy has seized on the virus outbreak, having manufactured it essentially, to declare a state of emergency in order to put the brakes on the IT revolution from ushering in democratic transformation, like the printing press did in the Middle Ages. They form an internationalized global state dominated by international capital which has been preparing for economic collapse and 1848-style revolutions. The oligarchy is formed by an Intelligence-IT-Media bloc.

The IT Revolution has given them the ability to evade a physical war against the population via the alternative of permanent surveillance and information warfare. This panopticon is the model for our form of late capitalism, the surveillance society organized and operated by the IT industry.”

It is a book I was hoping that someone with a Marxist structural orientation would write and, thankfully, he has. Especially since “The Left” has generally failed so spectacularly to analyze the deeper politics behind the Plandemic…which is an understatement.

It is available in hard copy and electronic form from the usual sources.

The global overlords’ puppets and lapdogs job is to facilitate the establishment of an authoritarian fascist social order under the guise of protecting the Zombified masses from an existential threat. This neo-feudal technocracy will be established whether the “threats” are real or fictitious, whether the “threat” is from a designated foreign state, non-existent terrorists or invisible microbes.
The elites will use deception, fraud, coercion, imitation and violence to accomplish their goals. We are seeing this in Australia, Austria, Italy, Canada and the US to name a few nations doing this all in lockstep with each other!
In Africa leaders who mocked or rejected the overlord’s global COVID psy-op all died, what a coincidence! The bogus, immoral and illegitimate decrees and emergency powers are being deployed by the oligarchs and their minions to enforce their Brave New World Order creation. The question is, what are we going to do to stop it?!

There is no difference between the WSWS and the mainstream media.

“The first target of these reactionary political forces was the dismantling of all remaining COVID-19 public health measures. But they also want a government that will more aggressively implement austerity against the working class at home and pursue the predatory interests of Canadian imperialism on the world stage.”

As if the covid programme wasn’t the very mechanism for stripping the working class of everything it has gained. And the biggest irony is that the WSWS has been reporting on this very impoverishment. This rancid website has nothing left and is now only followed by the Walking Dead.

I’m fairly sure that Livy said something about how, whenever the Plebs got a bit uppity, the Patricians would arrange a war with some neighbouring region; and thereby shut down any dissent. It’s an obvious tactic, but there’s still lots of people who won’t even acknowledge the possibility. Thomas Paine described something similar in the preface to Rights of Man (French ed.)

https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Rights_of_Man#Preface_to_the_French_edition
Preface to the French edition
THE astonishment which the French Revolution has caused throughout Europe should be considered from two different points of view: first as it affects foreign peoples, secondly as it affects their governments.

The cause of the French people is that of all Europe, or rather of the whole world; but the governments of all those countries are by no means favourable to it. It is important that we should never lose sight of this distinction. We must not confuse the peoples with their governments; especially not the English people with its government.

The government of England is no friend to the revolution of France. Of this we have sufficient proofs in the thanks given by that weak and witless person, the Elector of Hanover, sometimes called the King of England, to Mr. Burke for the insults heaped on it in his book, and in the malevolent comments of the English Minister, Mr. Pitt, in his speeches in Parliament.

In spite of the professions of sincerest friendship found in the official correspondence of the English government with that of France, its conduct gives the lie to all its declarations, and shows us clearly that it is not a court to be trusted, but an insane court, plunging in all the quarrels and intrigues of Europe, in quest of a war to satisfy its folly and countenance its extravagance.

The English nation, on the contrary, is very favourably disposed towards the French Revolution, and to the progress of liberty in the whole world; and this feeling will become more general in England as the intrigues and artifices of its government are better known, and the principles of the revolution better understood. The French should know that most English newspapers are directly in the pay of government, or, if indirectly connected with it, always under its orders; and that those papers constantly distort and attack the revolution in France in order to deceive the nation. But, as it is impossible long to prevent the prevalence of truth, the daily falsehoods of those papers no longer have the desired effect.

To be convinced that the voice of truth has been stifled in England, the world needs only to be told that the government regards and prosecutes as a libel that which it should protect.[1] This outrage on morality is called law, and judges are found wicked enough to inflict penalties on truth.

The English government presents, just now, a curious phenomenon. Seeing that the French and English nations are getting rid of the prejudices and false notions formerly entertained against each other, and which have cost them so much money, that government seems to be placarding its need of a foe; for unless it finds one somewhere, no pretext exists for the enormous revenue and taxation now deemed necessary.

Therefore it seeks in Russia the enemy it has lost in France and appears to say to the universe, or to say to itself: “If nobody will be so kind as to become my foe, I shall need no more fleets nor armies, and shall be forced to reduce my taxes. The American war enabled me to double the taxes; the Dutch business to add more; the Nootka humbug gave me a pretext for raising three millions sterling more; but unless I can make an enemy of Russia the harvest from wars will end. I was the first to incite Turk against Russian, and now I hope to reap a fresh crop of taxes.”

If the miseries of war, and the flood of evils it spreads over a country, did not check all inclination to mirth, and turn laughter into grief, the frantic conduct of the government of England would only excite ridicule. But it is impossible to banish from one’s mind the images of suffering which the contemplation of such vicious policy presents. To reason with governments, as they have existed for ages, is to argue with brutes. It is only from the nations themselves that reforms can be expected. There ought not now to exist any doubt that the peoples of France, England, and America, enlightened and enlightening each other, shall henceforth be able, not merely to give the world an example of good government, but by their united influence enforce its practice.

‘The plumb-pudding in danger: – or – state epicures taking un petit souper’ (William Pitt; Napoléon Bonaparte)
by James Gillray
published 26 February 1805

‘The plumb-pudding in danger’ is probably Gillray’s most famous print. It achieves its impact through the simplicity of its design and the brilliant economy with which Gillray captures the political situation. Napoleon Bonaparte and William Pitt face each other across a steaming ‘plum-pudding’ globe, both intent on carving themselves a substantial portion of the world. Pitt appears calm, meticulous and confident, spearing the pudding with a trident indicative of British naval supremacy. He lays claim to the oceans and the West Indies. In contrast Napoleon Bonaparte reaches from his chair with covetous, twitching eyes fixed on the prize of Europe and cuts away France, Holland, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and the Mediterranean.

The difficult thing to grasp is that the vast majority of the population have no critical capacity but have always been molded by the mainstream media which was clever enough to have a “dissident” wing so that even the “subversive” aspect whose appearance is so necessary to a nominal democracy is catered for without presenting any genuine threat to the rulers. Covid revealed the truth of this charade like nothing before. The Conservative side were all for the lockdowns and the Radical side were also for the lockdowns and any discrepancy there was simply not seen. Meanwhile the truckers are simply banished to the outer darkness and that’s the whole story. So it goes for the majority. And all through this, not a single critical thought enters any of their heads. All their thoughts are supplied by the media.

Beautiful illustration of my point:

It is learnt behaviour from the moment they enter education. For example, the common belief was WW2 had the good guys and the bad guys but through a very very slow drip of facts in to the mix by the MSM it’s discovered this was not the case.

Yet, authors such as Antony C Sutton had exposed this fairy tale to be false long long ago. The social engineering and the suppression of history has long been a top priority of the Rats Pack of Satanists behind most of the major wars and financial crisis in the 150 years or more .

How do they get away it. Money, corruption, blackmail amongst others and control of most of the sources of general information. The wild card is the human spirit hence why they are trying to crush it at every turn. They will fail !

“Necessity knows no law.” Giorgio Agamben.
Necessity is a human invention, a weapon invented by the powerful to use to maintain their control. There’s natural scarcities, but the powerful also weaponised scarcity to use to maintain their control. (And as Orwell’s Big Brother story makes clear – it’s all about Control...And as we all know, our biggest fear is Fear of Losing Control.)…

The USAs founding fathers drew up a constitution that spelled out the limits of government power; restrictions on government. But politicians are devious, they know how to work around those limitations, granting themselves Emergency Powers by legislation the main one. (Under which they grant themselves total immunity, as they have granted vaccine drug makers total immunity.)…

One can see in each Western nation after the next that the fear narrative has shifted from the “outsider” as menace (Islamic terrorists, Al Qaeda, ISIS, etc.) towards the internal threat- the “domestic terrorist.”

All happening during a historical moment when these Western nations are in total economic free fall. There’s little room for doubt at this point that the means and methods for social control are being put in place meant to restrain the “passions” of the unwashed masses who are sure to be a bit unruly as they come to discover that “owning nothing and being happy” isn’t as comfy as advertised.

Take a look at the very short most recent DHS directive issued one week ago, Feb. 7th:

https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/ntas/alerts/22_0207_ntas-bulletin.pdf

The first thing to consider is in the upper right corner of page 1 where a short note with asterisks tells us that that this diktat is a replacement for the DHS advisory of Nov. 10th 2021.

Now if we go back to that DHS advisory from 2021 (I won’t link to it unless requested due to OffG issues with multiple links in a comment) what we find is that this document, while beginning the slide towards the “domestic threat”, was still primarily focused on the external threat. For example it reads:

  • Following the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks and the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, violent extremist media branches of al-Qa’ida and its affiliates, as well as the Islamic State of Iraq and as-Sham (ISIS), have celebrated perceived victories over the United States and encouraged the use of violence by their followers and supporters to further their objectives. These foreign terrorist organizations will likely continue to maintain a highly visible online presence in an attempt to inspire U.S.-based individuals to engage in violent activity.

In the updated version it’s a near reversal in the sense that while yes we must always be wary of the possible external threat, according to the DHS, or at least it’s influence, it is now primarily the domestic threat that we must be vigilant against. That same portion of the DHS advisory now reads:

The primary terrorism-related threat to the United States continues to stem from lone offenders or small cells of individuals who are motivated by a range of foreign and/or domestic grievances often cultivated through the consumption of certain online content.

The convergence of violent extremist ideologies, false or misleading narratives, and conspiracy theories have and will continue to contribute to a heightened threat of violence in the United States.

Key factors contributing to the current heightened threat environment include: (1) The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions:

 For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.

“This touches all the bases”, as James is wont to say…
‘The (assigned) role of the proletariat has been to destroy the capitalist mode of production in order to liberate the productive forces imprisoned within it: communism was to begin only after this action was accomplished. But far from imprisoning the productive forces, capitalism raises them to new heights, because they exist for the benefit of capital, not humanity. The proletariat, therefore, is superfluous. The reversal referred to just now, whereby the productive forces are liberated by capital, rather than by the proletariat, which has been made possible thanks to the development of science, is a development in parallel with the domestication of human beings. Their domestication is their acceptance of the development of capital as theorized by marxism, which is itself the arch-defender of the growth of the productive forces. In the course of this development, the proletariat as producer of surplus-value has been denied even this function by the generalization of wage labor and the destruction of any possible distinction between productive and unproductive work. The once-revered proletariat has now become the strongest upholder of the capitalist mode of production**. What does the proletariat want ? And those who speak in the name of the proletariat and happily venerate its name – what do they want ? If it is full employment and self-management, this would only ensure the permanent continuity of the capitalist mode of production since it has now become humanized. The left all believe that the process of production, being rationality in action, only needs to be made to function for human needs. But this rationality is capital itself.

Hysteria around Ukraine, chasing phantom of Russian invasion, war like propaganda words and especially propaganda deeds spewed by the west like recalling diplomats shutting down embassies including US embassy temporary relocation to Lviv, Eastern Galicia region , known center of UkroNazi ideology of Doncov and Bandera, is aimed at covering up a year of preparations to doomed to fail conquest of free Donbas Kiev Nazi regime could not accomplish in 2014 and 2015 despite of unleashing reign of terror on civilian population who took up arms to defend themselves from Kiev Nazis and their racial ideology.

This propaganda spectacle weaken Zelensky so much politically as he is perceived as losing American support and hence to appease neutral or pro Russia factions calls for calm and repudiates western hysteria as actually playing in hands of Putin as panic weakens Ukrainian resolve to defend country.

Zelensky ran for office by promising normalization relations with RF by obtaining security guarantees from both RF and NATO without alliance with any of them, adhere to what he called modified Minsk II agreement and full integration of Donbas with Ukraine along lines of sort of federalization, ending corruption of Poroshenko regime as US dumped Poroshenko accused of stealing US money from Ukrainian military, reexporting NATO military hardware for third parties and continued buying coal from Donbas from fellow Ukrainian oligarch Firtash as only such coal could be burned in Ukrainian power plants (ironically for that alone now he is accused of treason) , won with support of some ethnic Russians for promises to reopen Russian language media and stop discrimination against ethnic Russians. Soon after he learned that by those electoral promises alone he created powerful political enemies, despite some American support for his administration, threatening his presidency as much as his life, hence he backtracked from all his electoral agenda and embraced Ukrainian Nationalist/fascist inherently and militantly anti Russian agenda that culminated with he decree from early 2021 of taking Donbas and Crimea back by .. whatever means available, diplomatic or military which sparked this fabricated pseudo crisis we are witnessing now. While Crimea is permanently out of any potential Russia talks as non starter (it is like asking US to abandon Alaska or else) and everybody in Ukraine knows that quietly floating ideas of perhaps some Russian reparations, Donbas can still be a bargaining chip as long as new post Zelensky rational even pro western Ukrainian government aiming at any meaningful representation of 22 millions of Ethnic Russian Ukrainian citizen and their interests emerges.

Historians have pointed out that after the “Weimar Republic” (Germany from 1918 to 1933) had become such an “emergency-decree-state” it was only consequential that the country turned into a dictatorship . And not necessarily into a Nazi dictatorship. It could also have ended in a Stalin dictatorship. Or in a Robespierre dictatorship. Or – at that time it was probably too early for that – in an Orwellian dictatorship. In our times the direction to the latter (Orwell) seems obvious to me. .
 
And, yes, an excellent piece of James Corbett again.
But in respect of ‘solution’ or ‘what should be done’ I don’t agree with his suggestion.
Starting at 32:50 James Corbett he mocks attorneys (e. g. Brian Peckford) that bring their matter before court. Instead, Corbett suggests, we should bring the tyrants down by “not complying” to the Covid-rules.
But I believe that by simply “not complying” things will not change at all. Not only that to this day a lot(!) of our co-citizens are overly happy to ‘follow orders’ and they will never join in. But also for the other citizens our governments will just raise the measure of coercion and force (hefty fines in Austria and Australia for the vaxx-free, and more to come).
 
Lawsuits, on the contrary, will work. first of all: We will have hundred thousands and hundred thousands of lawsuits. This not only because of the lockdown measures (e.g. little businesses have gone bankrupt) but also because of the many victims of these poisonous jabs.
And while the German supreme court (with its president pushed in by Merkel on he last days) had bent in (like the US Supreme Court in the matter of election fraud during the last election) a lot of lower and higher courts stood by their duty and the law. The Austrian supreme court (VfGH) for example demanded from government to give answer to crucial questions (and the questions already show where the VfGH is heading): *https://www.unzensuriert.at/content/142108-brisantes-schreiben-des-vfgh-fordert-mueckstein-auf-zahlen-und-fakten-zu-liefern/ – translation-link: https://www-unzensuriert-at.translate.goog/content/142108-brisantes-schreiben-des-vfgh-fordert-mueckstein-auf-zahlen-und-fakten-zu-liefern/?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=de&_x_tr_pto=wapp
 
Also see: https://tg-news.com/covid-19/austrian-court-pcr-tests-have-no-diagnostic-value-belgian-court-recall-all-anti-covid-measures-within-30-days/ ,
…and (from 2020): *https://uncutnews.ch/oesterreich-lockdown-war-verfassungswidrig/
(translation-link: *https://uncutnews-ch.translate.goog/oesterreich-lockdown-war-verfassungswidrig/?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=de&_x_tr_pto=wapp )
 
If future will show, that this coming flood of lawsuits didn’t change our way into dictatorship, then this will only be the case, because those, who rule us, will have been forced to drop their masks and tear down the legal system before everyone’s eyes. And then the INNER CONTRADICTION of the SYSTEM will cause its beak down. And this not by “not complying”, but then by open fight of the citizens and also people from within administrations. And last not least by enormous crowds of people, who lost all income (food, housing e.c.) and were thrown into deep poverty (I expect a world economic crisis of enormous proportions anyway – not only, but also because of the Lockdowns).

So many “Conservatives” spent much of the last few decades convincing us we need greater protection (via police, military, intelligence, national security, etc.) to protect us from supposed threats.
With so many “Liberals” often decrying the oft-imposed draconian measures enacted to that effect.

But now the tables have largely been turned.
Many of those same “Liberals” are now the ones calling for oft-imposed draconian measures, with “Conservatives” now decrying those measures.

And despite mostly empty-rhetoric, both sides are still supporting & profiting off the permanent war economy (wars against both human and microscopic “invaders”).

But this tweet below from Bill Gates is so incredibly ironic.
As he is now engaging largely in the exact same, just using a different approach & narrative.
I often wonder if the neo-feudal billionaire Lords just seek to test the limits.
Continuing to push the borders of oppression, just for kicks in seeing how much they can get away with.

And one of the biggest problems & challenges I see is that way too many people have just become lazy, obedient, complacent & compliant.
Sure, they gripe a lot, but often only after their sense of total obedience has already kicked in.
It seems that most people griping are griping because they don’t possess the courage nor independence to stand up & resist in the first place.

Talking of States, emergencies ‘n all that:

World War III starts tomorrow. Nuclear war. Armageddon. Maybe Wednesday/Thursday dependent on who you listen to.

Bloomberg favouring Tuesday. Biden opting for the Wednesday. Other journalists going for the Thursday option. The bookies divided. Daniel’s prophecies not fully interpreted. And we have our personal preferences too, do we not? My preferred date for the end of the world may not be the same as yours. There are surely no hard-and-fast absolute rules in a postmodernist world. Whichever date feels right, is right for you.

So yes, the worldwide obliteration of life. The triggering of the underground ‘Doomsday Device’, as per Dr Strangelove. Or update of ‘Fail Safe (1964)‘ for the 2020s. Head for the bunker. Duck and cover. Whichever you prefer.

But we’ll meet again some sunny day

Don’t be silly – all those peace-brokering Western leaders are going to save us.

Funny how we’re getting an object lesson in how wonderful and necessary politicians are just when many people have discovered how vile and redundant they actually are. It almost seems like it’s been designed that way – so it probably has been. One sign is that the most vulnerable of their number in a major country, Macron, was leading the charge.

As usual, they’re solving a problem they’ve created. As usual, the double standards show it’s all a farce (globalists suddenly discovering the sanctity of national borders! Biden doesn’t care about his own so why’s he so concerned about Ukraine’s? He isn’t).

You may well be right with the ‘wag the dog’ theory. Russia not invading the Ukraine in the end because we saved the day. And not because they never had any intention of doing so. Like the moon not falling because we intervened

I don’t listen to podcasts. I hate people talking at me with no opportunity to reply in kind.

One reason the truckers are in the vanguard of the resistence is their work enables them to listen to lots of podcasts, a point made by Catherine Austin Fitts recently.

Nice try steering people away from them.

I live near a small liberal arts college that has, among other things, quite decent athletics facilities that include a significant amount of spare field space. Some of this space was leased to the Los Angeles Rams football team for a practice field when they moved to Los Angeles, an arrangement that’s worked out quite well for both college and team. The Rams made it to the Superbowl this year so in the run up to the game there’s been various events including the ‘meet the press’ morning at the university. I’m not a football fan so most of this washes over me. However — this is a big deal from the National Security perspective, with the facilities and surrounding open areas heavily policed, snipers and all. Since this area is normally quiet and on the whole crime free you really notice the change when it happens.

A heavy security presence has been part of our lives since 2001, in fact many claim that the change and the event are connected (my bet is on opportunism). This means that a good half of the population of the US (and ‘allied’) countries has grown up knowing nothing other than heightened security, its the sea that they as fishes swim in. Biosecurity is like us noticing even a moderately heavy police presence; its not that it never existed or is somehow novel but its just a small perturbation in the prevailing regime.

You’d be amazed at the number of things people used to be able to do “and get away with”. Now it seems that the only limit is the attention span of law enforcement — they have to be selective because they literally can’t police everything.

They can police everything right now at any given time. I don’t underestimate how much power and surveillance the authorities have at the moment aided by the technology available and our consent. A person inadvertently breaks the law at least 2 times a day eg speeding, drug use, language, not wearing a mask, jaywalking etc. If they want to arrest you they can find something you did once upon a time very easily if they can be bothered. The trick is not to bother them or else.

Yep last weekend an old friend found out how easy it is to find you…just need your phone number in her case the police were warranted but it demonstrated how easy it is for them to find one…no doubt could also track and trace her phone moving about….so why did they need all the QR code nonsense other than make one live under compliance rules.
