Our successor to This Week in the Guardian, This Week in the New Normal is our weekly chart of the progress of autocracy, authoritarianism and economic restructuring around the world.
1. Swift outlines potential CBDC network
The international payment network SWIFT announced this week they have plans in place to creat a global network of central bank digital currencies, according to a report from Reuters.
Financial messaging system SWIFT has laid out its blueprint for a global central bank digital currency (CBDC) network following an 8-month experiment on different technologies and currencies. The trial, which for the last month has involved both France and Germany’s national central banks as well as global lenders like HSBC, Standard Chartered and UBS, looked at how CBDCs could be used internationally and even converted into fiat money if needed.
The report goes on to say:
Around 90% of the world’s central banks are now using, trialling or looking into CBDCs. Most don’t want to be left behind by bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but are grappling with technological complexities.
Somewhat unusually for a mainstream article, Reuters actually mentions “programmability”, although they do somewhat downplay its significance:
CBDCs are being seen as a step forward as they could effectively be programmed to meet both governments’ and individuals’ specific needs, although they have also raised concerns about privacy and surveillance.
For those who don’t know, “programmability” means banks issuing currency, or companies paying it as wages, could effectively put limits and controls over how and where it is spent, as well as what it is spent on.
So yes, many of us are indeed “concerned” by that idea.
You can read our past work detailing potential abuses and dangers of CBDCs here, here and here.
2. Guardian Double-Dips on Climate
Yesterday, the Guardian published a long opinion piece supposedly written by Greta Thunberg, apparently it’s an extract from The Climate Book, which was “created” by Greta Thunberg.
We’re well past the point of knowing one way or the other who actually wrote it, but it doesn’t really matter. Her picture is there above her name. It’s branded, that’s the point.
Whoever wrote it, the content is predictable…but interesting. For one thing, she’s honest (and right) about this:
Maybe it is the name that is the problem. Climate change. It doesn’t sound that bad.
The name climate change doesn’t scare people, which is why they keep trying to change it. “Global heating”, “climate crisis”, “climate emergency”…they’re desperately trying to rebrand as something alarming. It just hasn’t taken hold, yet.
Then there’s this…
Until now, Earth’s natural systems have been acting as a shock absorber, smoothing out the dramatic transformations that are taking place. But the planetary resilience that has been so vital to us will not last for ever, and the evidence seems to suggest more and more clearly that we are entering a new era of more dramatic change.
Which is a neat way of simply waving aside the fact that pretty much every major prediction of “a new ice age” or “new york will be underwater by 2015” or “our children won’t know what snow is” has been proven completely wrong.
Perhaps the most troubling little quote comes about halfway through:
there are no laws or restrictions in place that will force anyone to take the necessary steps towards safeguarding our future living conditions on planet Earth. This is troublesome from many perspectives
…she doesn’t use the words “for now”, but you can definitely feel them floating unsaid in the atmosphere.
The Guardian’s other climate change article this weekend is from Green Party UK MP Carolina Lucas, who says everything you expect Caroline Lucas to say.
She maintains that renewables are clean and safe and effective – they aren’t. And claims that we could stop using fossil fuels tomorrow – we couldn’t, at least not without completely breaking down our society and drastically reducing our standard of living.
Which, of course, is the whole point. The deeper message here is all about prepping the ground for more of the great reset, to go back to the article “created” by Greta Thunberg:
“We cannot live sustainably within today’s economic system.”
She doesn’t say precisely how the economic system needs to change, but we know, don’t we? We will own nothing and he happy*.
BONUS: Reminder they’re all in it together of the week
The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) this week refused to hear an appeal from 9 states, challenging the Biden administration’s authority to impose a federal vaccine mandate for all healthcare workers. The states argued that the mandate both exceeded executive authority as detailed in the constitution, and had led to a shortage of healthcare workers.
The SCOTUS is stacked 6-3 Republican appointees vs Democrats, so notionally should be a barrier to Biden’s “liberal” policies, and yet they refused to uphold states’ rights or to even hear the case at all.
Fake binaries, “It’s a great big club” etc. etc.
BONUS II: Climate change and identity politics
Back to the global warming well for a second deep drink, this time pointing out a concerted effort to try and fuse identity politics with the climate change narrative.
Firstly, in the Guardian yet again, we have this article:
People of colour have been shut out of the climate debate. Social justice is the key to a greener world
Then we have the Secretary General of the United Nations tweeting this…
The climate crisis is also a human rights crisis – and women's rights crisis.
We need more women at the table where #ClimateAction decisions are made.
World leaders must place the wellbeing & the rights of women & girls at the centre of climate policies & responses.
— António Guterres (@antonioguterres) October 9, 2022
It’s not all bad…
In good news this week, PayPal has walked back their plan to fine users who share “misinformation” after massive backlash.
The Florida Surgeon General has issued revised guidance on mRNA vaccines – they are no longer recommended for males under the age of 40, after studies suggested a massive increase in cardiac events. Not exactly great news, but a potential first domino falling. Oh, and Twitter censored the official tweet announcing this.
In France, huge anti-government protests swept the country this weekend:
Yet another mass protest against energy prices and the cost of living crisis.
And yet again, hardly any coverage of this protest in the media pic.twitter.com/H3gFsxFWT0

And Joe Biden continues to be hilarious.
We’re living in a Leslie Nielsen movie.

All told a pretty hectic week for the new normal crowd, and we didn’t even mention VOX panicking about “anti-vaccine sentiment” or the Belgian woman euthanised due to PTSD.
There’s a lot of change in the air, a lot of agendas in the works, if you see a headline, article, post or interview you think is a sign of the times, post it in the comments, email us or share it on social media and we will add it to the next edition.

The Atlantic echo Nietzsche’s eternal recurrence:
Blah blah everyone is denying the ongoing pandemic but blah blah still terrifying death figures blah blah. Indeed “New infectious diseases have regularly emerged throughout recent decades” and of course “climate change is quickening the pace of such events”.
“In 2018, I wrote an article in The Atlantic warning that the U.S. was not prepared for a pandemic.”
Well fancy that!
“That diagnosis remains unchanged; if anything, I was too optimistic.”
Which means that the diagnosis does not remain unchanged. Hey but let’s not get hung up on logical consistency!
“hospitals were nonetheless overwhelmed….experienced the largest life-expectancy decline … 1.1 million people who died last year…”
But we know this crap already. Let’s skip forward to the Also Sprach Zarathustra part:
“The U.S. will continue to struggle against infectious diseases in part because some of its most deeply held values are antithetical to the task of besting a virus. Since its founding, the country has prized a strain of rugged individualism that prioritizes individual freedom …” etc.
Yes you can skip the rest. “America” and indeed the whole world has not learned its lesson! It has not submitted to the demands of COVID!
The Atlantic back up their broken record with a link to a verbose site which lays out the usual, and to be fair, valid criticism of America as wedded to an ideology of competition and a denial of the social factor. But this is now being appropriated by an alien element that has nothing to do with the Left – and it is fascinating how that link complains that this individualist mode is a common factor with high income societies. Decoded: They have it too good. They must be brought down. The levelling that is envisioned is very much a levelling down and not up – save for a very few i.e. the few that own the society and the media and who are now making ready to plunder it all.
The verbose site alluded to – and the specific point linked to – is this one:
This is from the National Library of Medicine, operated by the United States federal government and an institute within the National Institutes of Health. And it’s interesting that “(u)nder the NIH’s regulatory rubric, the only exposures that are permissible targets of criticism and research in that universal bugaboo are Big Tobacco and the sun, which doesn’t pay lobbyists. NIH’s unbridled criticism of UV light has made sunscreen lotions another booming profit center for Big Pharma.” (from Wikispooks)
Oh BBC, what’s happening?
“India facing a pandemic of antibiotics-resistant superbugs
… Such resistance directly caused 1.27 million deaths worldwide in 2019….”
And watch out for the new buzz term:
“one of the countries worst hit by what doctors call “antimicrobial resistance””
And it’s not just India:
“Millions are dying from drug-resistant infections, global report says
More than 1.2 million people died worldwide in 2019 from infections caused by bacteria resistant to antibiotics, according to the largest study of the issue to date.”
Everyone’s dying! Indeed they’ve probably already died! Kill yourself!
The Conversation (?!) gets in on the act:
“Gonorrhea became more drug resistant while attention was on COVID-19 – a molecular biologist explains the sexually transmitted superbug”
Dr. Sam Bailey breaks down Gonorrhea…just another hoax!
A good excuse to lock up people without recourse.
The horror of covid knows no boundaries:
“Left a bad review of scented candles? You might have Covid
Surge in one-star online reviews of Yankee Candles points towards a rise in virus cases, says scientist
Reviews of scented candles can act as “a heads-up” for a spike in Covid cases, a scientist has claimed.
A surge in unusual one-star reviews of Yankee Candles from customers who claimed their product has no scent was likely to have been driven by people unknowingly suffering from Covid-induced anosmia – the loss of sense of smell and taste.”
From The Telegraph.
So it has come to this. The most comfortably bourgeois of illnesses finally arrives in First Class!
From the 33 minute mark, the general decline of the media into unfettered sadism with the cheering on of Ukrainians (i.e. the Azov Battalion) slaughtering “collaborationists” amongst the neighbourhood population. This gleefully trumpeted horror show produced by various propagandist hacks (well fêted with journalist awards) and, most disturbingly, presented by the regular UK outlets without a murmur of critique.
Not to mention the sheer scale of racist hypocrisy. While the west have slaughtered and starved to death millions of brown people and tortured and locked up any refugees who dare to flee Ukranians got fucking visas within 3 hours
They really have no other idea and no higher wish than re-heated Blairism:
They just ignore the disaster that resulted and have no grasp of how widespread the loathing is of Blair.
One part of it they’re trying to repeat is to drive Conservative support so low that two terms of Labour is virtually guaranteed.
Hello NickM. The use of Depleted Uranium should be prosecuted as a war crime, but isn’t.
Millions of middle-eastern lives (particularly children’s lives) have been permanently injured by NATZO assholes, who apparently, reside beyond the grasp of victims…
Uranium 234 has a half-life about 246,000 years, and Uranium 235 – boosts an approximate half-life 700 million years. Or about as long as the perpetrators should hang from a gallows…
No one gives a shit, because they have investment portfolios and like to Nancy around in airports and cruise ships…
Not to mention the tens of millions of land mines in Nam, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Iraq left behind by the USA killing people still after 50 years, agent orange that is disabling and malforming a 3rd generation of babies in Nam.
The levels of violence and destruction are only surpassed by the levels of ignorance displayed by the average human…
Latest psychopathic outburst, today, by the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany:
[Andrij] Melnyk: “This terror-state, Russia, must be eliminated.”
Three hours ago, Melnyk replied as follows to Elon Musk’s suggestion of peace negotiations:
These are genuine and entirely typical quotes by Zelenskyiyyi’s senior diplomat in the EU.
It was reported in July that Melnyk was being reassigned after an embarrassing video in which he explicitly praised Stepan Bandera. This was puzzling, since being an embarrassment is obviously Melnyk’s strong point. Now he’s sometimes referred to as the “outgoing ambassador”, but if true apparently the Zelensky regime feels there’s no hurry to move him.
Whatever the case, Melnyk is no diplomat or politician. He’s a one-trick hominid feces-flinger; what he lacks in aim and accuracy is made up in volume, volume, volume. 🐒 💩
The imperial ICT platforms, no longer have to censor pro-UkroNazi content. I think Twitter was the last holdout.
This is a genuine tweet from Andrij Melnyk, who is (seriously), the Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany:
The number of articles appearing that are trying to nudge people (especially the young) away from work is incredible. Here’s just one
It’s their tactic of pathologising what had been just normal parts of life. 6+7=13, one of the most Occult numbers, so the poll is probably pure fiction.
UBI (or however they rebrand it) and the Metaverse are the readymade solutions….
A video worth watching – from Michael McKibben and Douglas Gabriel: https://youtu.be/TCRCk4dh5JY?t=31
Ukraine now the recipients of shock and awe.
Well … we are all now Ukraine.
And there has already been ‘regime change’ in the UK as the Brexit masterplan has failed. No way to separate the UK economically and spiritually from its near neighbours despite the worst efforts of the CIA.
Now that Black Lives Matter has been royally exposed as a sham by Kanye West, they need another strap line #UkrainianLivesMatter
Are we certain the CBDC will be as advertised? Are we sure it’s not just another Psy-Op to win the war against cash?
For those not familiar with the CBDC concepts “as advertised” Richplanet has done an excellent short video showing how they’re selling it in white papers/how it could be used:
CBDC “as advertised” (lets call it the cartoon version) would be centrally issued by the CB on a private blockchain ledger, identifiable at the physical layer, i.e. each cent/penny or “token” would be uniquely identifiable thoroughout it’s journey in the real economy, forever, it’s i.d. cannot be changed. It could be programmable, e.g. have an expiry date, or GPS ringfence to stop it being spent outside your home Quarantine zone. It couldn’t be used to say, buy drugs, or be recieved if you sell drugs, without it being traceable, without authorities knowing. In the cartoon version of CBDC every cent/penny is traceable forever, no matter how many times it’s exchanged in the real economy.
In this opinion piece, it’s suggested this system is physically impossible with current technology, the author suggests CBDC is a psy-op:
The U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency Narrative Is A Fantasy:
The same premis is also being touted in Forbes: When The CBDC Revolution Comes, It Won’t Be On The Blockchain
The Cartoon CBDC version looks like a banksters wet dream, but if you’re a member of Public Sector Organised Crime, syphoning black money off into your off-shore account, paying for arms to ship to your friendly terror organisation, paying bribes etc.with drug money, this cartoon version presents a problem, it can’t be washed through multiple shell companies as it would retain it’s original I.D. and still be traceable at the end of the rinse cycle.
On the other hand, if the “Real” CBDC is exactly the same as the current digital fiat system, but with digital lipstick on the application layer, it could still be programmed/controlled by the app/wallet issued to each person using current technology the likes of VISA/MASTERCARD are currently using. It would still be traceable for the common pleb just as credit card payments are currently, but it has a backdoor for Public sector black money.
The only real difference with CBDC is that it wins the war against cash, whilst allowing the banksters/Public sector organised crime to carry on as normal, and selling the global pleb population into digital slavery, forever.
The “Real” CBDC looks like digital lipstick on a fiat pig.
And that is how we fight it. All the “reasons” they suggest for the need for CBDC, to stop crime, money laundering, tax evasion, cyber fraud, etc. etc. are still possible with the cartoon version as they are now. Their “resons” are pixidust.
Come for my cash and you’ll have to pry it out of my cold dead hands, it is the hill upon which I will be willing to die.
OK but BTC is purportedly decentralised and so the TPS (Trades Per Second) are limited
According to this source Solana has a potential of 710,000 TPS – which is getting up there in terms of the sort of volume required by a CBDC: Ethereum PoS has potentially 100,000 TPS
I’m agnostic through ignorance, but BTC is likely not the benchmark to reassure us
It helps if you actually read the links:
Also, I remember reading about mastercard setting up a “carbon tracking” tool for Banks, if the “cartoon” version of CBDC is meant to be what they’re saying it is, regular banks and credit card companies would be a thing of the past, but here we are with mastercard laying the groundwork for personal carbon budgets, in a kind of
cognitive dissonenc-esque huge move.
Recently my bank (NatWest) switched out our visa debit card for a mastercard debit card, in what I assume is a move linked to the carbon tracking future
they’re envisioning. Which lends credence to the opinion in the first
I guess if all the banks “fail” along with soverign currencies, a “new” digital currency running on existing architecture (digital lipstick on a fiat pig) with programmable application layer tech (app/digital wallet) it is an effective “soultion” with the same functionality as a programmable currency, but with a bankster/Public sector crime syndicate black money back door, and no “bottleneck” problems.
It won’t have Any affect on Them and their multi-armed smart expensive convoluted financial configurations. They aren’t tightening the screws on themselves. It Will leave us naked and open.
Also, the Central Bank wanting to control the plebs is not under the control of democratic or even pseudo-democratic governments.
Then there’s the ongoing torture of Julian Assange:
All the human rights organisations mentioned are frauds. The supported the genocidal scamdemic. The ACLU demanded Vince Salandria stopped investigating the JFK murder.
The ACLU will probably soon rebrand its name to AWES: the Amerikan Woke Enforcement Society.
That goes without saying when it comes to the Scamdemic but we can’t throw the baby out with _ _ _
Latest “war” news – nominal flashbang explosions in western Ukraine. Strategically placed to minimise damage but look good on camera. Naturally one “target” is a kids’ playground (wot, no hospitals?). A bridge gets “blown up” but is still miraculously intact after.
But enough smoke and noise to convince your average punter something is going on. Crank up the fear and hate factor to 11. Everyone blame the other side. And of course, this will lead to more “supply chain” problems! Gosh, blimey who’d a guessed it.
Dog continuing to be wagged.
This is supposed to be aftermath of a rocket attack in Kiev. Buildings intact, road seemingly intact but two burning cars to provide some visual of “devastation”.
What kind of rocket does this?
saturday morning cartoon rockets, where all the proles get their notions of ‘science’ and other ‘reality’ stuff
the claim is russia launched 80+ missiles, 40+ shot down.
11 people dead.
Cost of 80+ missiles?
one sniper could have done a better job.
utter and total bullshit
Video of bridge being blown up, but when the smoke clears it’s totally undamaged.
Because the missile missed its target
There is no planet Earth; Earth isn’t a planet; it’s a stable plain of natural abundance, it’s not a wandering star; if it was just an insignificant planet in an endless chaotic universe, Why do they spend so much time and effort trying to stay in control of it?
Thunberg is a ghost, a body possessed by a wraith speaking satans words of confusion and chaos. Its just hell propaganda.
Oh God another shill, this one playing the loony card to discredit the rest of us
Or, perhaps a real loony…
In any case, the last sentence is entirely correct.
What can you do with this?
“mRNA boost offers better protection against COVID-19 in people who received two Coronavac doses”
From the Hydra.
So what’s the manouevre there? Trying to coerce those who haven’t had two to get two? And that’s even before the booster!
For me the weirdest part about the Belgian euthanasia thing is I’m pretty sure that “terrorist attack” was fake. I saw a lot of good breakdowns at the time that pretty much proved that it was some type of drill.
So, fake follow up to original fake story?
Maybe her PTSD and depression was because she knew the real story; maybe she was euthanised because she knew too much and her condition is a cover…
“Let me start off with two words: Made in America.”
– Joe Biden –
The scary part is: The audience clapped and cheered. Joe got elected on a rigged election… Ah, those pesky numbers…
Joe learnt everything he knows about counting from the 6 million brigade … his handlers. ‘Lucky’ Larry’s mates.
Maybe they’re making a film about Yogi Berra’s life, and Mr President Biden would like the lead.
It’s déjà vu all over again. It’s déjà vu all over again. It’s déjà vu all over again… again.
It’s difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.
I didn’t see the original source, but I saw a hearsay comment somewhere reporting that some mass-media spin doctors claim that a “careful” scrutiny of the video reveals that The Ghost of Joe Biden (Barely) Present actually said “‘Made’ and ‘America'”.
Who are ya gonna believe– the spin doctors or your lyin’ ears? 👂
LOUISIANA PULLS $800 MILLION OUT OF BLACKROCK.
‘I refuse to spend a penny of Treasury funds with a company that will take food off tables, money out of pockets and jobs away from hardworking Louisianans,’ state treasurer John Schroder said. “Your blatantly anti-fossil fuel policies would destroy Louisiana’s economy,”
yyyess! This is exactly what we need.
Where have they put it instead? Vanguard?
I’ve had the feeling BlackRock has been positioned to be a lightning rod for the ire at these companies that they knew had to emerge. It’s always BlackRock that’s mentioned – like certain oligarchs are always mentioned.
Maybe BlackRock is mentioned because it’s the largest investment manipulator on the planet. Get a grip.

For about a week there’s been massing of NATO troops in Estonia and Poland w increased NATO airtraffic in Poland. Kiev has 15,000 troops stationed on the border with Belarus. President Lukashenko insists his country is not a party to the hostilities, but that they won’t permit Russian troops “to be stabbed in the back” from Belarus.
Ukrainian forces have destroyed almost all bridges and mined the roads along the border with Belarus, Anatoly Lappo, chairman of the State Border Committee of Belarus, said on Sunday. Minsk has accused Kiev of planning imminent strikes on its territory. –RT
They’re just yanking our chains. Trying to get us scared of a nuclear war they’re never going to start so we forget all the other shit going on. They’re laughing at how easy to distract and scare we are.
You’re assuming anybody gives a shit what they blow up or how many nukes they threaten to deploy.
RT tells Americans how to regain control of our civilization.
Quite remarkable that this advice should appear on RT.
It’s a reprint of an American’s article. Must see.
Max Keiser @ El Salvador says that CBDCs are a response to Bitcoin (and Ethereum etc) and pronounces the latter as antidotes to the former.
A “response”? Pull the other one….
It’s like transhumanism will be presented as a response to China. Got to compete! Got to keep up! Got to respond! They set up and control the thing we’re “responding” to.

Somebody clean that up, please.

If you really, really want to know what America thinks of its people, and the international hoi-polloi … just look at who they have put in as their leader. How embarrassing …
Sadly, the alternative, Trump, was given the chance, and though more coherent verbally, proved to be not much better politically. When it’s all-said-and-done, which normal person places their son-in-law as an International ‘advisor’ and thinks it’s OKAY?
Albeit, there does appear to be a pattern with dumbing-down the political leadership of most Western countries. NB: I can’t really say ‘democracies’ because there are none. I wonder why ???
Third-World countries have generally been captained by despotic tyrants because our Western-Corporate titans ensure that their leadership is controllable, or their deaths are hastily ‘arranged.’
Here in the UK we have a special kind of dumb. They can be found in Westminster sitting on their fat overpaid arses and all singing from the same hymn sheet.

Global Warming a myth?
Tell that to the poor Folks in Pakistan:
‘At least 1500 people died as a direct result of the flooding, including hundreds of children. Some 180 Healthcare facilities were so damaged that they no longer function, leaving many desperate people without access to basic care for themselves and their families’
Fire storms in Australia and the US.
Fires in South American rainforests.
Floods in Europe.
Droughts in China.
Heatwaves in India etc etc.
Unless it directly impacts middle class suburbs in affluent countries we can ‘look the other way’
Our climate is a linear system. I would hardly call any of this “Unprecedented”
The flooding in Pakistan is flooding flood plains. How exactly do people think the dirt forming the flood plains got there? If you’re going to live on a flood plain you’re going to get flooded from time to time, this shouldn’t really have to be explained.
Also, living in places like this really isn’t helpful.
I agree, but when 800 year old trees are destroyed in fires (Australia) 400 year old homes are washed away in floods (Europe) and ancient rainforest are burnt (Brazil), I get nervous.
Personally, the only thing I’m nervous about is the incoming corporate attempt at enslavement of this entire planet.
And due to the howling stupidity that’s just shown itself to be the dominant thought process amongst the majority of people, it looks almost certainly like it’s going to happen.
We work, we buy, we work, we buy.
And then we die.
We’re already slaves, they’re just nailing our coffins shut.
And some of us think beyond that unremarkable scenario.
we live, or maybe do die trying too, ? striving to be not… hwta?
i’ll stick around til ma weans declare me redundant, then i’ll give myself a dignified (hopefully ha) exit. i can live with that, if it gets so… ; )
WE WILL PREVAIL

I don’t know for Brazil, but there been arsonist acting in Australia. That are the same fascists who turned the entire country into medical prison camp, of course they are fully capable of hiring arsonists.
Why believe it though just coz it’s on the news? Why believe it just happened by accident if it did happen? Global warming is a billion dollar industry these days, they’ve gotta keep the fear generator turning over with big headlines.
Even the IPCC admitted extreme weather events are down.
Record numbers of Polar bears and rich climate zealots owning beach front properties.
Buy you live in fear if you want too.
The IPCC is bought and paid for by the geo-engineers/military who are using the planet’s climate systems as a weapon against anyone who doesn’t see the undisputed goodness of the hegemonic beast.
The reality is that there is no legitimate evidence extreme weather is increasing or sea level rise is accelerating. The fears are baseless.
Firestorms in 800 year old forests.
Ancient glaciers shrinking.
Rain on the highest peaks in Greenland.
Parts of Antarctica disappearing.
Rivers running dry.
Twenty year droughts.
Massive methane releases in the sub Arctic.
FFS. How much proof do we need?
You are fighting the in-house religion.
Amen to that. Can’t speak for Johnny, of course; but for my part I’m willing to consider evidence countering climate crisis. Trouble is, said “evidence” mostly consists of saying climate crisis is a hoax and assuming that says it all. It doesn’t.
Those who assume everything’s fine and dandy seem to regard climate as a great big self-contained blob which is so tightly packed and organized that nothing can disrupt it.
But it’s composed of millions of fragile pieces, any of which can be disrupted (by climate engineering, e.g.). And any disrupted piece can affect yet another piece, which in turn can affect another. They’re called “feedback loops.”
All of which distracts from the fact that we allow incompetent fools to sit in government and claim to represent us.
Our enemy is not a melting glacier, or a cow’s fart.
Our enemy is a person who mixes with other persons in order to construct a system of control from which he benefits, while we do not benefit.
“Greed” is the old word for it.
Fuck off shill cunt
Never been floods, fires or heatwaves before on plant earth.
El Nino has been replaced by La Greta
Never been eight billion people on the planet before, spewing out trillions of tonnes of toxins.
All completely harmless are they?
Or are there benevolent toxins?
Fire storms in Australia and the US.
Fires in South American rainforests.
Floods in Europe.
Droughts in China.
Heatwaves in India etc etc.
Perhaps you need to check what unprecedented means…
Looking after the environment and starving, freezing or jabbing people to death are the same?
Unprecedented in one million years of human history.
What happened prior to that is geological guesswork.
We are here now. Eight billion consumers consuming. No precedent for that.
trillions of tonnes of toxins?
Presumably you have evidence of this, which you could easily share
The MIC, billions of vehicles, millions of factories, tens of billions of cattle and fowl (blood , bones, excrement etc) the chemical industrial complex, the oil and gas behemoths, plastic, and human excrement, have all expelled multiple toxins over the last hundred years.
It’s amazing we’re still breathing.
That reminds me of an observation from Hyperallergic:
“This week was hot! Temperatures in Europe soared so high that some museums had to close their galleries. What do climate change deniers have to say about that?”
Same mechanism. The public have been pre-programmed to ingest specific reported events as evidence of a claimed general impending apocalypse. So naturally when the reports come in, the apocalypse is “confirmed”.
A perfect circle.
I didn’t realise their was so much stupidity.I think it’s just on Tv and social media because everyone I know ain’t as thick as a ton of bricks.
In other news this week (or was it last?),
Flu is making a comeback!
Yes, that thing that mysteriously disappeared these past couple of years.
Don’t worry, Pfizer & Moderna have got you covered!
If you don’t want to take the new
vax-/ experimental/ whatever, it’s probably because you are suffering from mental illness ..
In which case there are solutions for you.
That mental illness being having a survival instinct. I think the vaxxers are what they are.
Genocidal maniacs that need to be locked up and strung up.
People like Edward Dowd have observed that Klaus Schwab and the WEF seem suspiciously over the top- like Bond villains. Perhaps they’re actually Fall Guys for the clot shots. One possible Hopium is TPTB are “only” trying to depopulate us with the clot shots and they’re not serious about the rest of the WEF goals yet. If so, then perhaps the “bad guys” like Gates, Fauci and Schwab will be blamed for the clot shots and the “good guys” (all controlled opposition) will “save the day”. My guess is the main purpose of the clot shots is to sterilize the majority of those who have been vaxxed and to reduce lifespan. If ~50% of the world has truly been vaxxed, then the globalists have already “won”.
OTOH, if the globalists are pushing forward with their agenda, then here are some things to worry about:
1) Banking system might collapse soon (e.g. BoE and Credit Suisse).
2) Cyberattack might take down the power-grid/banking system.
3) China might invade Taiwan.
4) Stock market might tank completely, impoverishing the upper middle-class and pensions, etc.
5) Ukraine War might escalate to full-blown WW3.
6) Another pandemic- Marburg?
7) BRICS ends the petrodollar and the dollar crashes.
8) Some claim the Great Reset is really about Peak Oil- if true, then SHTF is imminent.
What they are trying to do is whatever they can get away with. All this shit is made up as they go along.
Not personally “worried” about anything on your list. All are on the cards (except #8 – don’t think we are about to run out of dead whales just yet).
Peak Oil is a hoax. I have again & again posted many megafinds of gas & oil. There is enough to last two centuries at present usage.
This is just one link; I’ve a lot more.
PS This is true of water too. Primary water is water which has never been part of the hydrological cycle. This documented knowledge is suppressed. I have an extensive file on this, have even visited one of the wells.
Peak oil was based on a deliberate misrepresentation of “proven reserves”. Oil companies find reserves for about three decades ahead – there’s no point in covering further ahead than that.
Watch ‘Mad Max 2’ again and see the mpushing the oil’s going to run out soon in the early 1980s. If resources really are running out, maybe we could start exploiting Antarctica – it’s full of resources according to Admiral Byrd, no people and very little wildlife. Funny how they’d rather “mine asteroids”….
For those unfamiliar, check out the subject of methyl or methane hydrates. Apparently there are extremely large reservoirs of this form of hydrocarbon on earth, estimated between 10^15 and 10^18 cubic meters in gaseous form. That’s 1000 to 1,000,000 trillion cubic meters. Currently the technology to obtain this energy source is undeveloped. I recall the late James Gordon Prather predicted 20 years ago the primary future energy source would be CNG based on this reservoir

Fauci got his booster on the Stephen Colbert show a couple of days ago. Colbert was the one who did that dancing syringes number. Booster uptake is abysmal – it’s bizarre that they think the people they need to convince would be watching this show.
Given that the booster uptake is abysmal, and the nature of Colbert’s audience, it’s probably more a matter of encouraging than convincing.

Here’s a thought for this coming Armageddon season –
Putin is being goaded to use his old nukes before the “best before” date – Only sensible in these times of stretched budgets.
I would not dismiss the option of a nuclear strike and subsequent nuclear retaliations
As I understand it, a tactical nuclear weapon can clear a big space of useless eaters with a minimum of collateral.
In fact, it is one of the fluffiest, friendliest weapons of destruction known to man
The controllers will not want to be anywhere near the area when these things go bang.
If we can track the Voldermorts and Schwabs and Gates etc. If they suddenly leave an area/ country/ continent then we should prepare ourselves.
BTW, you might think that they wouldn’t flee their palaces for fear of them being destroyed.
They know that they can buy a new palace, Venice, Cote D’Azur, Tuscany.
It’s all on expenses.
Anyone got the tech to track their planes?
Can’t be that difficult if you’re a techie. (I’m not)
Governments are stocking up anti-radiation pills ready because after the bombs drop there will be only skeleton crews to attend the survivors.
Just in case you haven’t heard the report. Saturday October 1st, the ex-police officer Mark Sexton has now made two attempts to close down a vaccination Centre at the University of West England in Bristol. Initially the Centre was closed down as it constituted a crime scene based on the evidence of the harm the Covid vaccine was causing to children and adults. A young inspector, one Insp. Lippiatt, did get the vaccinations stopped for the day, to be resumed the following Tuesday morning. However, the centre was re-opened again the following Tuesday and Sexton and his team returned. They had to explain everything over again as a new lot of police had been deployed – clearly part of a police tactic and no inspectors intervened to stop the medical procedures. In fact, the evidence that a crime was being committed and that police action was required on the evidence Sexton’s team had presented was stonewalled.
Sexton had Dr. Aseem Malhotra a leading consultant cardiologist on the line, ready to speak to the senior officer at the scene. At least two of officers refused to speak to Malhotra.
To cut a long story short, on the Europe Reloaded website there’s a very important video that conclusively demonstrates that the police officers involved had no intention of preventing “all offences against the people” (outlined by Sexton’s team) according to their oath (Police Reform Act 2002).
Sexton tried to arrest a couple of the officers involved for failing in their duty to close down the centre as a crime scene, based on their evidence. However, police reinforcements were called in and Sexton’s team were outnumbered. Here’s part of the video quote – Sexton speaking to police in their vehicle:
‘As a constable, it is your duty to obtain evidence that (indistinct) may be put forward to the Crown Prosecution Service. We’ve provided evidence that you’re deliberately and wilfully ignoring. You are misconducting yourself in public office. These people (pointing into the vaccination centre) are committing an offence of gross negligent manslaughter and corporate manslaughter, and it is a rolling offence.”
Finally, Chris Abbott, a rep from the University of West England arrived on the scene with a document indicating that Sexton’s team were trespassing on private land despite Sexton’s appeal to the man, the police won the day. But I guess the matter is not over.
“It indeed raises the disturbing question of what it actually takes to get UK police to act in a professional manner. Sexton exposes them”.
Mark Sexton: “You’re a disgrace to the uniform. You’re protecting murderers!’ [VIDEO] – Europe Reloaded
Those who control the police have no intention of upholding our laws. Our laws have now been supplanted by THEIR laws. The police will act accordingly.
I think most people here would not disagree with that Grafter.
However, the People do have the power to reinstate the common law (the true Law of the Land) operating according to basic common law principles and including common law courts, peace constables and CL Communities in a peaceful and lawful manner. This is gradually being done on a domestic front, and also on an international basis, but just now, there are insufficient numbers involved to make a serious impression. That’s why more people need to consider joining and supporting the Common Law Court and common law principles. See details: commonlawcourt.com. Also view John Smith’s videos on Youtube.
The video on Mark Sexton clearly demonstrates the fact that there was insufficient support by the People or a CL Court – despite that a crime had been committed by the vaccine centre and was actually given a crime number!
The police (policy officers) follow their orders from above and will not deviate from those orders as clearly demonstrated in the video. However, they were probably glad that MR Abott showed up in the end with the paperwork indicating that Sexton and his team were actually trespassing on private property. One wonders how the situation would have panned out if that were not the case and the police had no grounds to remove Sexton’s outnumbered team due to trespass.
“Now close your eyes and tap your heels together three times and say…

On the Belgian euthanasia matter,
“…we could say that the psychiatrists completed the terroristic act that ISIS started when it bombed the airport.”
“This is only the latest of many examples of Belgian psychiatrists opting to kill depressed patients rather than help them struggle on.
Godelieva de Troyer was euthanized by an oncologist as a treatment for her severe depression. Her son, Th0mas Mortier, first heard of the killing when he was called by the hospital morgue to pick up his mother’s body. He sued in the European Court of Human Rights and gained a partial victory that Belgium had not conducted a proper investigation of the homicide.
Nathan Verhelst*, distraught at the results of transition surgery, was lethally injected as a palliative for his anguish.
An anorexic patient whose own psychiatrist sexually predated her was euthanized by a different psychiatrist because of the trauma of the abuse.
An elderly woman was euthanized for grief after her daughter died of a heart attack.
A healthy elderly couple who “feared for the future” were euthanized together, killings arranged by their son who said he could not care for them.”
*Verhelst was a “transsexual” who was “helped to die by doctors in Belgium, after a series of failed sex-change operations”. (From the BBC)
And whilst trying to determine when the concept of transgenderism came in, I typed in “when did transgender start” to Google and was met by this:
See what they did there? The expressions came in with the 1950s and 60s. More specifically, the term “transgender” was coined by one Psychiatrist John F. Oliven in 1965. But this term is projected all the way back to the dawn of time!
Wait until they let healthy people do the deed.
Take the vaccine you can still get it you can still pass it on?!? I didn’t realise people were this stupid 😬
They’ve redefined the meaning of vaccine.
And stupid 😬😂
From the Vox article:
“This Covid-19 booster is likely the last time the government will offer a free shot to all Americans. We are moving away from a pandemic footing and into an age when reformulated Covid boosters are part of the routine vaccination schedule. That should be a cause for celebration: They are miracles of scientific ingenuity, delivered faster and proving more effective than most experts believed possible at the start of the pandemic. They have helped avert tens of millions of deaths worldwide, by some estimates.”
“Miracles of scientific ingenuity” is how they were touted the moment they appeared. Also at a point where there was no way they had enough time to be tested. But this has always been an advertisement that constantly repeats.
I also wonder what they mean by reformulated (?!) covid boosters becoming part of the “routine vaccine schedule”? I’m guessing that this means constantly (mysteriously) updated boosters as part of a … “voluntary” schedule?
The “controversies around the vaccines” are “driven by a mix of political opportunism, polarization, and misinformation” i.e. all objections are suspect and illegitimate because … well we are back to the advertisement that never changes i.e. “miracles of scientific ingenuity”.
Such controversies are based on a “level of denialism”. We are once again in the mindset of faith (and advertising).
And then there’s the crass pandering to prejudice:
“Republican lawmakers have drafted a pile of anti-vaccine mandate bills … Republicans experienced a meaningfully higher death rate from Covid-19 than Democrats — and the difference was almost entirely concentrated in the period after the vaccine became available…. the rampant anti-vaccine skepticism that has taken hold in the US, particularly on the right.”
“Public health experts are preparing for an all-out war on school mandates and other vaccine measures in states like Texas.”
Texas! See? That home of the red-necked Bible thumpers!
But this Left/The Science/pro-vax against Right/Superstition/anti-vax is the meme they’re going for in a big way. And that too sprang fully formed in spring 2020.
It all amounts to a recasting of Moses and the Ten Commandments. Only this time it was a team of white coats who came down from on high to deliver the stone tablets. After which – no change till the end of days.
As usual they offer no proof whatever that this is the case, you’re just supposed to take it on faith.
If the next disaster is climate change will the sheeple wear windmills on their heads?Or solar panels?Ive lost respect for humanity No wonder they want to kill us.
You’re doing a great job for the Cabal, more often than none… revise your shit Annie
Who said ‘left’ and ‘right’ have become meaningless. In the good ol’ USA they simply morphed into ‘republican’ and ‘democrat’.
Then there’s the Australian political usage: ‘center-left’, and ‘center-right’, ie, ‘left but not left’, and ‘right but not right’.
The Australian ‘Greens’ are a left-but-not-left party to the left of the left-but-not-left Labor Party (ALP)..
With the police state, surveillance,Schools being slowly dripping into society to normalise people.All I see on Tv and I don’t watch it my boyfriend does but I glimpse,And it’s all controlling people it’s awful we are living right now today in 1984.Dystopian controlling police and government rhetoric, it’s not going to happen it is happening.
who the fuck always gives you upvotes for stating the obvious that everyone here has been saying for the past 2 years, and with zero insight
The obvious often bears repeating, because people have fucking short memories.
Oh I’m afraid the happiness is compulsory.
Now that has a famliar ring. Ah yes – millennia of natural immunity to viruses suddenly disappeared and now we need endless vaccinations.
>immunity to viruses
“viruses” have never been proven to exist in nature. They’re nothing but a belief system.
There’s a compromise position: no one disputes that endogenous “viral”-like particles exist. I’m fine if people want to assume that “infectious” (exogenous) viruses exist as long as they also acknowledge that vaccines are 100% ineffective and can only cause harm. And that virus genomes, which are cobbled together from genetic fragments found in cell cultures, using computer models are FAKE. Read “Dissolving Illusions” for overwhelming evidence that vaccines had nothing to do with the decline of so-called “infectious” diseases.
The problem with that is that if you believe that “viruses” are real (exogenous, infectious, replication-competent intracellular parasites) then there is always going to be non-zero chance that “vaccines” could have some therapeutic effect (ie if there is something out to get me etc) and you will argue about how that’s not the case and how “vaccines” are actually dangerous and useless ad nauseam.
On the other hand, if you look at the evidence and realize that there is simply nothing there and “viruses” have never actually been proven to exist and are simply a misinterpretation of non-specific data then the whole “vaccine/no vaccine” argument goes away entirely.
We can settle this once and for all, what will it take?
Good point- agreed. But one problem with the no-virus camp is explaining what causes “infectious” diseases like the flu. Obsoleting one paradigm requires replacing it with another one. So far, alternative ideas like EMF, terrain theory, detox and “resonance” aren’t as “sexy” as infectious viruses.
Actually, it’s not a problem of “no-virus” camp at all. Disapproving the existence of “viruses” does not require another explanation (not that there are no other explanations). If we’re talking about science then it doesn’t matter how “sexy” it is only whether it adheres to the scientific method, but you’re right, knowing and being able to explain your point of view is only part of the battle, your ideas must be accepted by others (ie consensus) to make any meaningful difference.
We can’t line sustainably in todays economic system – dead right there girl. Get rid of the central bank system greta, the BIS, the World Bank, the IMF, the whole thieving lot of them, go for it.
In a short clip I saw today somewhere (I can’t remember where) she literally said ‘if we save the banks we save the world.’ 🙈
“Nice Beaver”. “Thank you. I just had it stuffed”
As long as they allocate the existing gas among the countries they won’t run out this winter, but some industries will leave rather than cut back production. Bloomberg is predicting only a 5% economic contraction. Seems optimistic, no?
But Deutsche Bank is in trouble and so is Credit Suisse. Germany will bail out Deutche and maybe private investors will buy into Credit Suisse, which has lost about half of its capitalization due to bankruptcies of smaller financial entities last year.
US is sending Ukraine $1.5 B per month and is pressuring EU to commit to the same. EU already is $9 B behind commitments to Ukraine. Unsustainable! European citizens will never stand still for it.
They can’t even deficit finance cuz the bylaws limit each country to 3% deficit.
Germany can issue bonds, but none of the other countries have the finances to do that. Italy is in crisis and looking for investors.
WHO WILL JOIN SCO* FIRST?
Turkey has already told journalists she wants to join. Hungary? It would be the smart move. Hungary’s president made a comment on a radio broadcast about the possibility of leaving the EU.

Francis Boyle drafted the U.S. domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.
Biden’s executive order “research involving potentially pandemic and other high-consequence pathogens …” violates it of course.
Francis Boyle is THE expert on bio-weapons law. He published a book titled “Resisting Medical Tyranny: Why the COVID-19 Mandates Are Criminal.” In it, he also details how we can fight against this tyrannical overreach using peaceful and entirely legal means.
