  2. From a Facebook page, support from Canadian doctors: "A Letter to the Unvaccinated By Dr. Angela Durante, Prof Denis Rancourt, and et al. Ontario Canada Civil Liberties Association August 2021 Open Letter to the global Unvaccinated You are not alone! As of 28 July 2021, 29% of Canadians have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and an additional 14% have received one shot. In the US and in the European Union, less than half the population is fully vaccinated, and even in Israel, the “world’s lab” according to Pfizer, one third of people remain completely unvaccinated. Politicians and the media have taken a uniform view, scapegoating the unvaccinated for the troubles that have ensued after eighteen months of fearmongering and lockdowns. It’s time to set the record straight. It is entirely reasonable and legitimate to say ‘no’ to insufficiently tested vaccines for which there is no reliable science. You have a right to assert guardianship of your body and to refuse medical treatments if you see fit. You are right to say ‘no’ to a violation of your dignity, your integrity and your bodily autonomy. It is your body, and you have the right to choose. You are right to fight for your children against their mass vaccination in school. You are right to question whether free and informed consent is at all possible under present circumstances. Long-term effects are unknown. Transgenerational effects are unknown. Vaccine-induced deregulation of natural immunity is unknown. Potential harm is unknown as the adverse event reporting is delayed, incomplete and inconsistent between jurisdictions. You are being targeted by mainstream media, government social engineering campaigns, unjust rules and policies, collaborating employers, and the social-media mob. You are being told that you are now the problem and that the world cannot get back to normal unless you get vaccinated. You are being viciously scapegoated by propaganda and pressured by others around you. Remember; there is nothing wrong with you. You are inaccurately accused of being a factory for new SARS-CoV-2 variants, when in fact, according to leading scientists, your natural immune system generates immunity to multiple components of the virus. This will promote your protection against a vast range of viral variants and abrogates further spread to anyone else. You are justified in demanding independent peer-reviewed studies, not funded by multinational pharmaceutical companies. All the peer-reviewed studies of short-term safety and short-term efficacy have been funded, organized, coordinated, and supported by these for-profit corporations; and none of the study data have been made public or available to researchers who don’t work for these companies. You are right to question the preliminary vaccine trial results. The claimed high values of relative efficacy rely on small numbers of tenuously determined “infections.” The studies were also not blind, where people giving the injections admittedly knew or could deduce whether they were injecting the experimental vaccine or the placebo. This is not acceptable scientific methodology for vaccine trials. You are correct in your calls for a diversity of scientific opinions. Like in nature, we need a polyculture of information and its interpretations. And we don’t have that right now. Choosing not to take the vaccine is holding space for reason, transparency and accountability to emerge. You are right to ask, ‘What comes next when we give away authority over our own bodies?’ Do not be intimidated. You are showing resilience, integrity and grit. You are coming together in your communities, making plans to help one another and standing for scientific accountability and free speech, which are required for society to thrive. We are among many who stand with you. Angela Durante, PhD Denis Rancourt, PhD Claus Rinner, PhD Laurent Leduc, PhD Donald Welsh, PhD John Zwaagstra, PhD Jan Vrbik, PhD Valentina Capurri, PhD" 5

  3. The folks who realize that the "election" was rigged are not ant-elections. Does anti vax even make sense as a term since its not even a vaccine, it's a jab. I think that these folks who are being called anti vaxxers or whatever should be called anti not going to let something be put into my body that I dont know what it is, instead, although that's pretty long

  4. Who's fanatically anti-vax? I only know of those who've researched the information, soberly thought through their health risks and medical history, and decided to do without it. Usually protecting themselves by other means. They are completely obliging to others doing differently. I am "fanatically" against any coercion and psychological intimidation on individuals who chose they don't want it, for whatever their reasons. (Including religious 'reasons') Next time with some other matter, it will be oneself/one's 'group' that a government and 'society' goes after. "For the good of us all". There's little "anti-vaxx", that's made of straw, but there's plenty anti-"anti-vaxxers". That tells one something, how much a universal obedience is essential for many.

  5. This morning I heard an interview with Gov Beshear of Kentucky bemoaning the fact that there are still vestiges of the American system of checks and balances in place in his state. He sees as a defect the fact that the citizenry can influence public debate via their elected representatives in the state's legislature. He lamented the fact that power didn't reside in one individual and that that individual couldn't be free to impose their will even and especially if that will was 'unpopular'. A sitting Governor in the USA on public airwaves lamenting the fact that he can't be Mussolini, wtf.

  6. William, No. I do not find the issue of the professional qualifications or conduct of lawyers the caliber of Sidney Powel and Lin Wood debatable. Especially not when a corrupt activist judge is involved. For as much as I despise Marc Elias, I have the same professional attitude about his legal demeanor standards. He games the system and might even be guilty of bribery, being a bag man, and so on, but within the legal structure and as a lawyer, like when in court, he stays within bounds. At least from what I have seen. Disbarring him would be a political act, not a legal one. And I would not be on board. btw - I do not have the same evaluation of Andrew Weissmann, who has been guilty of prosecutorial misconduct over and over and always skirted despite his prosecutions being overturned over and over. This is one dude who should be disbarred and even thrown in prison. But being the Clinton attack dog from early on, well, we know that, even though cheating is his judicial standard, getting away with cheating is the rule until he is overturned. And then he, personally, gets away with it even when his case is lost. Rand had a good shortcut for this kind of garbage, which includes the garbage they are throwing at Sidney Powel and Lin Wood. Don't bother to examine a folly-ask yourself only what it accomplishes. As you know, that is not my normal standard. But in this case, the abuse of power is so egregious, and the corruption of the players is so obvious (they keep getting busted over and over), the details don't matter. It's like the 12 FBI agents spending months pretending to be militia to set up and entrap 6 actual militia dudes in Michigan about kidnapping Whitaker and thinking they have done something to fight crime. It's all bullshit. Can the details like color, texture, thickness, etc., of a pile of shit keep it from being shit? No. That's why I'm not interested in the details in this case. Both Powell and Wood will appeal and win. So all this is just a big waste of time as a publicity stunt to get the press pressure off of Biden's fuck-ups and the election audit steam-roller heading this way. Michael

  7. Quotes from the Florida's new Surgeon General, Dr. Jospeh Ladapo, appointed by Gov. Desantis: “Florida will completely reject fear as a way of making policies in public health. So we're done with fear,” Ladapo said. "That's been something that's been, unfortunately, a centerpiece of health policy in the United States ever since the beginning of the pandemic and it's over here. Expiration date. It's done." “Vaccines are up to the person. There's nothing special about them compared to any other preventive measure,” he said. “The state should be promoting good health, and vaccination isn't the only path to that. It's been treated almost like a religion. It's just senseless. There's lots of good pathways to health.” He said in addition to vaccines, people should be encouraged to lose weight, exercise more and eat healthier.

  9. William, If true (and who knows being that this is from CNN and Woodward?), I only have one question. Dan Quayle? Dayaamm! Direct quote of Quayle talking to Pence from the article, presumably quoting from Woodward's book, Peril: In other words: Sit down. Shut up. And listen to your betters. That way you can keep your seat at the government banquet table. That sums up Quayle's entire career. And Pence thought this was wisdom, so he did it, too. (Instead of balance of power, he accepted the premise that he had no power.) Imagine if the Founding Fathers had thought like that. We would still be under English rule. Michael

  10. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/09/ouch-richard-ebright-15-top-scientists-eviscerate-fauci-daszak-lancet-medical-journal/ Quote follows…. The world‘s leading medical journal The Lancet has now published an article explicitly condemning the letter organized by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance, Jeremy Farrar of the Wellcome Trust, and others. … "there is no direct support for the natural origin of SARS-CoV-2, and a laboratory-related accident is plausible. There is so far no scientifically validated evidence that directly supports a natural origin.” … A lab leak origin of the pandemic is “plausible”, the authors find: “Some unusual features of the SARS-CoV-2 genome sequence suggest that they may have resulted from genetic engineering.” Ebright and collegaues also skewered Fauci’s stooges for placing “unity” and their political agenda over critical evaluation and science: End quote. WOW! Could this possibly be a harbinger of some scientific and medical honesty getting into the professional sources? Ellen

  11. William, Read it better. That's not the oligarchy. That's not even close to the oligarchy or what the oligarchy wants. In case it's not obvious to you, the oligarchy wants to shut down the audit. They've only been saying that to everybody and their families, including shouting it to the four winds since the audit got serious. But I realize you are busy and may have missed this, so now you are informed. But if the oligarchy is somehow involved, their next task will be to do what they do best, that is corrupt or blackmail Shaddeg. I looked into Shadegg (more about him below). I find this possibility remote. Possible, but really remote. And granted, this issue is not over until it's over, but this go around doesn't look good for the election fraudsters. If it were a football game, it would be like getting the two minute warning with a score of 68 to 3. Just to be clear, the fraudsters have the 3 points. Money talks and bullshit walks In my view, this agreement is one more validation of the adage: Money talks and bullshit walks. The county was about to lose a crapload of money. So it caved. And since the county caved big-time, the Shaddeg Special Master provision was put in for face-saving more than anything else. It provides an out for some of the rationalizations they gave for not complying with the Senate subpoenas at the time. (That nonsense about exposing law enforcement info, etc.) Notice that Shaddeg will hire his own team. So this arrangement will go beyond him regardless. The bad guys can corrupt a team member or more, but Shadegg can also hire people friendly to CyberNinjas if he likes. He has sole discretion. In the way this will play out, I expect to see leaks and possibly some resistance here and there (I bet Shaddeg--or those hired by him--is getting offered a pretty penny from those about to go to jail ), but I don't expect to see the gross fraud that occurred in the 2020 election. Shaddeg doesn't have to submit a report, but he does have to put his name to the answers he provides to the Senate and counsel backstage. My first impression of John Shadegg I looked him up. He seems to be an old conservative hard-ass with a squish. Granted, he supported McCain and Romney, but hell, back during the elections, so did I (with misgivings, but I did). He was involved with the Tea Party starting back in 2009. And, from everything I have seen so far, he left politics about a decade ago by choice. Was it because of migrating to a money-lined sinecure or was it because he was disgusted? He says he was disgusted. Maybe. But I wasn't up to spending hours digging into his life after politics to verify. Shadegg came down on the right side of the main issues (i.e., the Trump side) during Trump's first term of office, but he sometimes added typical non-damaging admissions (he thought Trump went overboard with aggressiveness at times, or Trump did some things that were ill advised, etc.--I didn't see him say anything about the following on my quick scan, but from the image I've gotten of him, I bet he complained lightly about Trump's tweeting. ) Some on the left are calling him a huge Trump supporter and some on the right are calling him a RINO never-Trumper. I don't think he's either. I saw him on a 2019 Fox video and he seemed to be a reasonable person. To my knowledge, he hasn't been involved as a bad guy in a major scandal and he doesn't appear to want to be. And he seems to have a good strong bullshit meter. Will the dark side corrupt him? After all, the county requested him and will pay his fees. But that doesn't necessarily mean he's a toady to them. The county was backed into a corner as it was close to losing millions. I believe Shadegg came in as a compromise just so the county could save face and, possibly and inadvertently prompt some vulnerability to arise that they could possibly exploit. An attempt to set up a Hail Mary pass, so to speak. Tomorrow, no doubt Bannon will address this. So I will know more about Shadegg then. Michael

  13. Here is the raw footage of Day 3 of the International Covid Summit 2021 in Rome. The description on YouTube of this summit says: Go to 3:10:45 if you want to catch a US portion at the end. International Covid Summit 2021 That link goes to a YouTube video that I tried to embed just now. Guess what popped up in my post field as I was writing? This: Big Tech really is a vampire sucking the blood of the world. At least YouTube has allowed the raw footage to go up (for now). According to what I heard on the parts of the video I watched, this summit was streamed to 140 different countries to an audience of about 100 million people. Watching the video If you watch this particular video, remember that it is raw footage of Day 3 only--and it is really raw. It is ragged, which is why I believe YouTube is allowing it to be up for now. Also, there are people from all over the world giving their presentations, so there is a festival of languages with no translation (but also plenty of English). My suggestion for viewing is to scroll around in the video and stop where things look interesting to you. The video about three and a half hours long. Also, according to what Dr. Malone said, a couple of Canadians organized this summit. (Yay Canada! ) I don't have details of the summit right now and didn't stop to take notes. But as the videos of this summit and information about it gets better presented, I will try to find this material and put it here. Seed of global smackdown I believe this is the seed of a global smackdown of the insane James Bond villains who have taken over the health departments of governments the world over, all in the name of lining the bank accounts of themselves, Big Pharma and cronies. Also, here is the USA, there will be less information readily available about this summit than there will be in other countries, especially countries that are now openly embracing medicine (hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, etc.) for early treatment of the virus and putting rational restrictions on their vaccine policies. Countries embracing medicine As an aside, I did a quick search to see how many countries are using medicines for the coronavirus. I came across an interesting site that gives a bunch of countries along with pictures of the medicines being used. The site is focused on ivermectin, but there are a lot of other medicines presented in addition. What Countries are Using Ivermectin? Notice how many countries are listed as "country-wide adoption." It is a sin what Big Pharma is doing in conjunction with the fake news media and crony government officials. Much worse. It is pure evil. Hippocratic Oath Dr. Malone pleaded at the end of the summit for those in power to simply let physicians get back to working under the Hippocratic Oath instead of government mandates and decrees that violate it. There are at least 100 million people in 140 different countries who agree with him. And that number is merely the streaming audience of the summit. Add the many country-wide adoptions for medicine as treatment for the virus and that number goes into the stratosphere. Michael

  16. It looks like Rolling Stone did not do a real retraction, but instead something that looked like one. Jimmy Dore is livid about this whole ivermectin sham. Even though this video is coming in a little late in the fake news cycle, it is a great complement to what I posted before since Jimmy presents a whole lot of media outlets printing and broadcasting the story without checking anything. Today people see these lies and agree they are lies. They see the proof. They see that this was due to widespread laziness or malice or both. Then fairy dust settles on their brains as they sleep and tomorrow they will trust these same goddam media outlets to tell them the truth. And this will happen again and again and again and again... The media lie, people die, pigs will fly, and trust in the media goes down a bit. Then trust snaps right back into place as if no lie ever happened. Go figure... Michael

  17. The funny thing is how leftists reconcile their hate for corporations, including big pharma, with their total embracing of the vaccines. They will say that this is not about the corporations, but rather it's about science and trusting the experts. And somehow that pesky legal immunity of the manufacturers is water off a duck's back.

It's a long thread, but informative and explains how this was brought upon themselves. These two quotes from the thread sum it up: "Australians are just more 'we' than 'I'..." "In short, Australians are a herd and we expect everyone in our herd to do their part to protect the weakest in the herd."

  20. I had my annual check-up last week and informed my doctor of a thing or two (or more) when he was surprised at my not having gotten any of the Covid shots. He hadn’t so much as heard of Robert Malone - or of figures for Israel past June, when, briefly, the stats were looking favorable for the "vaccination" program. Whatever medical sources he was getting his information from were being selective (charitably speaking). Ellen See addendum four posts below.

  21. This is Walter Cronkite with an update. Mega Millions cash payout is 248.7 million and the next drawing is Tuesday 9/7. Powerball cash payout is 265.4 and the next drawing is today, Saturday, 9/4. You only get 55 percent of those amounts after State and Federal taxes. So Mega Millions 248.7 times .55 is 136.7 million dollars take home. Powerball 265.4 times .55 is 145.97 million dollars take home. Tickets are 2 bucks each. I may once again get a few Powerball tickets today and a few Mega Millions too. I usually get five randomly selected numbers on one ticket, so if I get 5 of each I will be out 20 dollars . . . or incredibly wealthy. And it is fun.

  23. Roger Bissell (REB) once posted this: The Seven Warning Signs of Bogus Science From: PaleoObjectivist To: atlantis Subject: ATL: Allie Oops--Bogus Science? Date: Tue, 4 Feb 2003 11:59:54 EST. Dear List Members: Considering some of the rather striking (not to say outlandish) claims about the "fundamental nature of reality" made on this list recently, it thought would be interesting to consider the following material from a recent issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education. Two questions: 1. Are the criteria of "bogus science" valid, or are they overgeneralizations and risky to apply consistently? 2. Do they apply to recent claims by Everett Allie about the basic constituents of nature? all 4 now, REB The Chronicle of Higher Education, 3.1.31 http://chronicle.com/weekly/v49/i21/21b02001.htm By ROBERT L. PARK The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is investing close to a million dollars in an obscure Russian scientist's antigravity machine, although it has failed every test and would violate the most fundamental laws of nature. The Patent and Trademark Office recently issued Patent 6,362,718 for a physically impossible motionless electromagnetic generator, which is supposed to snatch free energy from a vacuum. And major power companies have sunk tens of millions of dollars into a scheme to produce energy by putting hydrogen atoms into a state below their ground state, a feat equivalent to mounting an expedition to explore the region south of the South Pole. There is, alas, no scientific claim so preposterous that a scientist cannot be found to vouch for it. And many such claims end up in a court of law after they have cost some gullible person or corporation a lot of money. How are juries to evaluate them? Before 1993, court cases that hinged on the validity of scientific claims were usually decided simply by which expert witness the jury found more credible. Expert testimony often consisted of tortured theoretical speculation with little or no supporting evidence. Jurors were bamboozled by technical gibberish they could not hope to follow, delivered by experts whose credentials they could not evaluate. In 1993, however, with the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc. the situation began to change. The case involved Bendectin, the only morning-sickness medication ever approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It had been used by millions of women, and more than 30 published studies had found no evidence that it caused birth defects. Yet eight so-called experts were willing to testify, in exchange for a fee from the Daubert family, that Bendectin might indeed cause birth defects. In ruling that such testimony was not credible because of lack of supporting evidence, the court instructed federal judges to serve as "gatekeepers," screening juries from testimony based on scientific nonsense. Recognizing that judges are not scientists, the court invited judges to experiment with ways to fulfill their gatekeeper responsibility. Justice Stephen G. Breyer encouraged trial judges to appoint independent experts to help them. He noted that courts can turn to scientific organizations, like the National Academy of Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, to identify neutral experts who could preview questionable scientific testimony and advise a judge on whether a jury should be exposed to it. Judges are still concerned about meeting their responsibilities under the Daubert decision, and a group of them asked me how to recognize questionable scientific claims. What are the warning signs? I have identified seven indicators that a scientific claim lies well outside the bounds of rational scientific discourse. Of course, they are only warning signs -- even a claim with several of the signs could be legitimate. 1. The discoverer pitches the claim directly to the media. The integrity of science rests on the willingness of scientists to expose new ideas and findings to the scrutiny of other scientists. Thus, scientists expect their colleagues to reveal new findings to them initially. An attempt to bypass peer review by taking a new result directly to the media, and thence to the public, suggests that the work is unlikely to stand up to close examination by other scientists. One notorious example is the claim made in 1989 by two chemists from the University of Utah, B. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann, that they had discovered cold fusion – a way to produce nuclear fusion without expensive equipment. Scientists did not learn of the claim until they read reports of a news conference. Moreover, the announcement dealt largely with the economic potential of the discovery and was devoid of the sort of details that might have enabled other scientists to judge the strength of the claim or to repeat the experiment. (Ian Wilmut's announcement that he had successfully cloned a sheep was just as public as Pons and Fleischmann's claim, but in the case of cloning, abundant scientific details allowed scientists to judge the work's validity.) Some scientific claims avoid even the scrutiny of reporters by appearing in paid commercial advertisements. A health-food company marketed a dietary supplement called Vitamin O in full-page newspaper ads. Vitamin O turned out to be ordinary saltwater. 2. The discoverer says that a powerful establishment is trying to suppress his or her work. The idea is that the establishment will presumably stop at nothing to suppress discoveries that might shift the balance of wealth and power in society. Often, the discoverer describes mainstream science as part of a larger conspiracy that includes industry and government. Claims that the oil companies are frustrating the invention of an automobile that runs on water, for instance, are a sure sign that the idea of such a car is baloney. In the case of cold fusion, Pons and Fleischmann blamed their cold reception on physicists who were protecting their own research in hot fusion. 3. The scientific effect involved is always at the very limit of detection. Alas, there is never a clear photograph of a flying saucer, or the Loch Ness monster. All scientific measurements must contend with some level of background noise or statistical fluctuation. But if the signal-to-noise ratio cannot be improved, even in principle, the effect is probably not real and the work is not science. Thousands of published papers in para-psychology, for example, claim to report verified instances of telepathy, psychokinesis, or precognition. But those effects show up only in tortured analyses of statistics. The researchers can find no way to boost the signal, which suggests that it isn't really there. 4. Evidence for a discovery is anecdotal. If modern science has learned anything in the past century, it is to distrust anecdotal evidence. Because anecdotes have a very strong emotional impact, they serve to keep superstitious beliefs alive in an age of science. The most important discovery of modern medicine is not vaccines or antibiotics, it is the randomized double-blind test, by means of which we know what works and what doesn't. Contrary to the saying, "data" is not the plural of "anecdote." 5. The discoverer says a belief is credible because it has endured for centuries. There is a persistent myth that hundreds or even thousands of years ago, long before anyone knew that blood circulates throughout the body, or that germs cause disease, our ancestors possessed miraculous remedies that modern science cannot understand. Much of what is termed "alternative medicine" is part of that myth. Ancient folk wisdom, rediscovered or repackaged, is unlikely to match the output of modern scientific laboratories. 6. The discoverer has worked in isolation. The image of a lone genius who struggles in secrecy in an attic laboratory and ends up making a revolutionary breakthrough is a staple of Hollywood's science-fiction films, but it is hard to find examples in real life. Scientific breakthroughs nowadays are almost always syntheses of the work of many scientists. 7. The discoverer must propose new laws of nature to explain an observation. A new law of nature, invoked to explain some extraordinary result, must not conflict with what is already known. If we must change existing laws of nature or propose new laws to account for an observation, it is almost certainly wrong. I began this list of warning signs to help federal judges detect scientific nonsense. But as I finished the list, I realized that in our increasingly technological society, spotting voodoo science is a skill that every citizen should develop. Robert L. Park is a professor of physics at the University of Maryland at College Park and the director of public information for the American Physical Society. He is the author of Voodoo Science: The Road From Foolishness to Fraud (Oxford University Press, 2002).

  24. And right you are, Peter. It is also valuable to view this scientifically, from the epidemiologists' perspective fixated upon the masses and disease control. They see us humans collectively, as a mass of disease transmitters. All fine in itself, that's their area of expertise, but I think they have been allowed too much public and moral authority outside of that. I maintain that the strategy taken by the mainstream epidemiologists/virologists (contrary to some, who were highly aware of the comprehensive picture of life and humanity, involving all other disciplines - like medicine, psychology. mental health and economics) was unscientific, narrow, short-sighted and wrong, from start to finish.

  26. I got the idiot Trump image game above from an interview between Owen Shroyer and Zach Vorhies (a Google whistle-blower). Incidentally, you can see a lot more screenshots like in the post above on the video. Also, you can see the Google dork swearing before Congress that Google does not alter its search results for political ends. Google Whistleblower Says The Company Wants To Control Your Mind BRANDNEWTUBE.COM Google Whistleblower Says The Company Wants To Control Your Mind (NOTE: This links is on BrandNewTube and was sent to me offline. The Banned Video link is here. I didn't use it because it doesn't produce a rich link in the plugin I got for OL, so it's probably on some kind of exclude list.) So who is Zach Vorhies, exactly? He was a Google insider and he wrote the book that came out recently (referral link) exposing Google's political manipulations: Google Leaks: A Whistleblower's Exposé of Big Tech Censorship He shot to the top of the news when James O'Keefe interviewed him and exposed the Google blacklisting policy and more. There is plenty of information on him out in the Interwebs. I wanted to see something recent to add to this post and there is a lot of material. I chose one, so here is one of Vorhies's latest interviews. Google whistleblower Zack Vorhies RUMBLE.COM The latest episode of Uncovering the Truth With Matrixxx Grooove on Brighteon.TV features Zach Vorhies, former Google employee and one of the authors of the book “Google Leaks: A Whistleblowers Exposé Now, before you go to that video, let me make a warning. If you don't know who Jeffrey Pedersen and Shady Groove (the co-hosts) are, which was my case on first looking at this video today, you will see cringe written large during the first 5 minutes. Really. It is awful. Then Zach Vorhies comes on and the difference switches from junkyard to mansion. Seriously. Good God! What were they thinking? You clothe gold in dirty rags and shit? Really? The first 5 minutes gives one of those Q montages that go on forever. Then when Jeffrey Pedersen came on, he was talking up a storm except there was no sound. He got that worked out, then introduced his co-host, Shady Groove. Shady got to talking except his sound was off, too. When that got turned on, Shady talks like he has a goddam sock in his mouth. What a mess. I almost clicked away. But I didn't and, boy am I glad I didn't. These guys are fantastic interviewers. Zach told inside stories of how Google persecuted him (even sending a SWAT team to his house on a phony bomb scare and gave some information on big question marks left in the past--for instance, the LA shooter. From looking at the documents on the inside of Google (he worked there at the time), Zach thinks that the whole thing was an assassination attempt against the top guy in Saudi Arabia and Google actively helped bury the information. There is the cold fusion energy investment scandal. Zach even tells a story about covfefe and how Google, in cahoots with the NYT, tried to change that into something it wasn't to denigrate Trump. You can download a lot of information from the book here. Let me say another word about Jeffrey and Shady. I don't know why they allowed the first five minutes of the video to be the way it is. Snipping it off is the easiest thing in the world. But there it is. That does not mean they are yayhoos, though. the left takes them as seriously as it can without writing too much about them. And they are on the inside with Trump. (They have interviewed Gen. Flynn and many top Trump people.) For instance, look at this article from last July on the lefty rag, Salon. Trump issued QAnon influencers press passes for Florida rally | Salon.com WWW.SALON.COM "We are the news now," one QAnon influencer declared Their new show is called "Uncovering the Truth With Matrixxx Grooove" and it airs daily at noon on Brighteon.TV. See more at the Matrixx Groove Show website. I did not know of these dudes, but it looks like they are real-deal Q people, not the fringe. Back to Zach. He still has his Twitter account and is actively using it as his alt account (like at Gab, Gettr, etc.) have not seen posts in a while. That tells me he has not exposed all he has and he probably has some deep shit. He did say he has a dead man's switch. Here is a tweet from him just a few hours ago. It might be that the whole Theranos scandal is interconnected with the COVID-19 thing, Elizabeth Holmes lost her usefulness to the Deep State and Health Mafia, and they simply threw her in the trash once they got from her what they needed (I speculate, but it was probably testing waters in some manner along with money laundering). Anywho, have fun. This is one particular rabbit hole that is turning out to be fun and informative. After I read Google Leaks, I'll write more. I want to tie all this to Ayn Rand in the end, but the only thing that fits is that the entire social structure in America needs to be dismantled and built anew based on freedom, reason, productivity, and so on. Except this is not happening by a strike of the brains. It is happening by a big-ass MAGA movement. And the villains are not James Taggart or Ellsworth Toohey types (although there is some of that). They are James Bond villains trying to take over the world. I never thought I would live to see a James Bond villain in reality, much less a whole slew, but there they are. Just look. Jeez, what a time to be alive... Michael

  29. "Plus ça change..." The Photograph That Brought an End to 1918’s Mask Mandate During Spanish Flu The Photograph That Brought an End to 1918's Mask Mandate During Spanish Flu RESISTTHEMAINSTREAM.ORG Check this out. quote: At the height of the worst pandemic in American history – the Spanish flu of 1918 – cities across the country did something, modern America would find familiar. They issued mandatory mask mandates and punished anyone who didn’t comply. “The man or woman or child who will not wear a mask now is a dangerous slacker,” read a typical announcement from the Red Cross. The city of San Francisco, took the rules so seriously that a city health agent shot a man who refused to wear a mask – he hit the two bystanders who happened to be standing behind the man. That seemed a bit much to some people, but many others went along with it. They were afraid of the virus. They wanted to do their part to stop it. Most of all, they trusted their leaders. If their leaders put a mandate in place, they assumed it was for a good reason and they wanted to help. But then something happened that shook the American public from their blind obedience. A photograph surfaced from a boxing match in San Francisco. Among those attending were several high-ranking public officials—all unmasked. “The photograph went national. Americans were shocked to discover that the people making and enforcing the rules had no intention of following those rules,” Carlson said. “Mask mandates across the country ended shortly after. The public was willing to endure inconvenience, but not hypocrisy.” end quote

  30. Peter, I don't read minds, not even Trump's. Science to me, once again, deals with trial and error, observation, controlled experiments, repeatable results, and so on. Like I learned way back in high school and before. I don't do science based on who the crowds boo or applaud. So far, you have stated that your standard for medical science is what the doctors you consult say. And now, crowds. I think you also mentioned TV news, but I won't hold you to that one. I mean, we all have our moments of rhetorical excess... I want to meet you halfway here, but I can't use those standards. They are not rational standards of science, not the ones I use. And even meeting you where you are, doctors and crowds disagree with each other so much, they are not standards at all. Just markers of tribe. As to booing Trump at that moment in his speech, I probably would have booed him. He pushed the approval so hard, the scientists employed by Fauci's Wuhan/WHO/Gates mafia, the FDA and the giant pharmaceutical companies involved that they fudged the science and instituted a humongous propaganda campaign--and even coverup. Trump's heart was in the right place when he pushed these people, but now is later than then. And now he has be aware of all the problems, including the disagreements by equally accredited scientists and doctors and other medical personnel. I applaud Trump's comment that people have their freedoms and even that the vaccines are available. I boo his comment presenting enthusiastic certainty over something nobody is certain of, not rationally. Plenty of people are certain of the vaccines emotionally (both sides). But rational certainty needs rational standards and rational processes for verification, both of which are missing in the vaccine controversy. And I only boo Trump's enthusiastic certainty because his comment gives morale to the authoritarians who are bullying and censoring American citizens and he is smart enough to know it. About the vaccines, there is plenty of bullshit going around. Even with Trump. Not too much reason. (And, yes, I'm still a huge Trump supporter.) Michael

  35. William, Damn right. Eventually charging them doesn't wipe out the months of incarceration without charging them. And some, who would have been granted huge payouts (after a long court battle), like the Buffalo Horn shaman dude, ended up pleading guilty to a trumped up minor charge to get minimum punishment. That was after being held for a long time without being charged. They wore him down. Of those now being charged, have you noticed the plethora of misdemeanors? I can't think of a single misdemeanor that justifies months of incarceration without charges and solitary confinement. Michael

Greer, MD - The Greer Journal GREERJOURNAL.SUBSTACK.COM July 22, 2021- by Steven E. Greer, MD I woke up yesterday with a slight malaise and I sneezed once. I knew I had come down with a virus of some sort. It was very mild and in the early stages, but I got ahead of... Here is the part Sidney included in the newsletter: That looks like pretty sound advice. People are doing similar things all over the world now and getting similar results. Incidentally, I had a nasty case of the flue about 3 or 4 years ago. It knocked me on my ass for a week and Kat was ready to take me to the hospital. We went to the pharmacy first, and the lady there suggested Tamiflu. I took it and the virus cleared right up. I don't know if this was due to the pill (I think I only took 3 or 4 doses), or that the flu had run its course, or both. But I survived and that's the important part for me. Michael

  40. Fuck Biden. NYT Confirms Biden Murdered Innocent Family In Kabul Drone Strike WWW.ZEROHEDGE.COM Seven children... The gist is that a drone strike ordered by Biden's people killed an innocent family of 10, but Biden's people (especially Milley) said they took out an ISIS terrorist and there were secondary explosions in addition to the drone's Hellfire missle. Just one problem. No terrorist. They only killed the innocent family of 10. And no secondary explosion. Just the damage from the 20lb Hellfire missle. This drone strike happened three days after a suicide bomber killed 13 Americans and a bunch of Afghans (over 170) in the Kabul airport. The idiot generals under Biden were spooked, so they not only bombed first and worried about correct identification later, they delegated the decision to bomb to underlings so they could cover their asses if something went wrong. And cover their asses is exactly what they are doing right now. Expect to see a low-level scapegoat soon. Here is Milley lying his ass off about all this. And the supposed "terrorist"? What did he look like? Well, here he is (not to mention the other 9 members of his family). He was an Aid Worker and he was getting water. For those who prefer the NYT to Twitter for the full story, here is Evan Hill's NYT report. ‘Imminent Threat’ or Aid Worker: Did a U.S. Drone Strike in Afghanistan Kill the Wrong Person? - The New York Times WWW.NYTIMES.COM The New York Times obtained exclusive security camera footage and witness accounts to show how the military launched a drone strike that killed 10 people in Kabul on Aug. 29 without knowing whom it was... I repeat. Fuck Biden. And fuck Milley. And fuck the whole group of those corrupt losers. Michael

  41. This is my favorite non-interview episode so far because it deals with an important difference between Objectivists. Objectivism, Open or Closed? Scott and I have a small debate over the issue of open versus closed Objectivism. Everyone seems to agree that "open" and "closed" are metaphors which need literal explanations. I propose that "open" refers to Objectivism as a common noun, i.e., a class of Objectivist philosophies; while "closed" refers to Objectivism as a proper noun, i.e., the specific philosophy of Ayn Rand. Take a listen!

  45. Yes, TG. Freedom. The pragmatic, social and statist necessity for getting the jab has overtaken any medical necessity. Our lives are going to be made miserable if we refuse. So it seems I will line up with everyone for mine, irrespective of my (pretty good) health considerations. There's no freedom for all if some don't have it. The right to be wrong -also - is what freedom of choice comes down to. These choices of the vax dissenters must be defended by even and especially those who disagree and disapprove. Or else, next 'they' will be coming for 'you'.

  46. YouTube is not allowing this video on its platform since it gives information on the failures of the FDA and that goes against the intentions of the current batch of authoritarians. But I think it is important to look at this stuff in addition to recognizing the benefits Big Pharma has contributed to mankind. Emotionalism and censorship are poor substitutes for reason. And if you don't identify something correctly, it is really hard to judge it correctly, and near impossible to judge it correctly with consistency. So the first step in using reason, always, is to identify the relevant facts, good, bad and indifferent. Then judge. Well how can one identify something at all, much less correctly, if he never sees it? You will not see in the mainstream the relevant facts in the video below. But they are as relevant as they can be in evaluating the FDA. As full disclosure, I did not dig and double check the info in this video. But it is so easy to research (is a drug on the market now or not?), and the visuals look so informative, it all looks pretty accurate. URGENT! History's 7 Deadly Lessons on “Full FDA Approval” WWW.BITCHUTE.COM ***URGENT....PLEASE READ*** Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. There are MILLIONS who've trusted the FDA and Big Pharma in the past. They've trusted them with their VERY LIVES... After seeing that, it does make one pause and think about the true value of an FDA approval. It's certainly not a guarantee, or at times, even an assurance, of anything. And don't forget, Big Pharma gets to keep the money it makes from selling dangerous drugs that have addicted, damaged and/or killed millions of people. Oh, there are the lawsuits, but they never get the bulk of the money. In this sense, especially when Big Pharma is granted immunity from prosecution, it turns into a racket, not a boon to mankind. That's why one always has to look behind the "controlled narratives." Michael

  47. I just saw this. Jeffrey Prather is quirky, but he's the real deal in everything I have seen. He is hopping mad, too. I haven't seen him that mad before. The title of his video is a bit hyperbolic. When Prather starts talking, he says "bomb or cause to be bombed." What he's talking about is a lot of data points that don't add up and he's clear about that. But he doesn't buy the suicide vest theory for the Kabul airport bombing. And frankly, there doesn't seem to be much evidence of that. It actually does look more like a planned bombing from stealth airplanes. Beware, though. The opening of the video shows 30 seconds of a group execution Taliban-style. Prather even tells you to turn it off if you don't want to look. But I think we all need to look. This is reality, not some fucking narrative that needs controlling as General Milley worries about how to introduce the Taliban to gender studies and critical race theory. DID BIDEN BOMB KABUL? RUMBLE.COM Join Jeffrey live at 1pm today... Americans & troops bombed & shot! State Department told Americans LEAVE airport! US B-52 bomber in route turned off transponder! CIA pretends Taliban good ISIS-K bad! In Prather's opinion, the bombing was a false flag staged by the people who control Biden in order to get him out and get Harris in. He talks about bombers turning off their transponders over there and so on. This is fog of war, so nobody giving information in public can be trusted to be accurate (including Prather). That means I can't endorse any theory like his with certainty. But as conjecture, I certainly can endorse it. His view is plausible. And it should be considered. The uncertainty is unsettling, but it is far preferable to taking Fearless Leader at face value and watch the world burn. The US government lies. That statement is more than just a gripe. It's a fact. Prather also blasts Trump and others. I disagree with those parts, but I'll take his passion and knowledge in the service of restoring America. A lady named Mel K, who is one of those the mainstream fake news calls a "conspiracy theorist," says it's OK to be wrong. I agree with her. Right now, nobody knows anything for certain. If we don't brainstorm what the high and mighty are doing in the backrooms, they certainly are not going to tell us. And brainstorming always comes with errors. But brainstorming and crowdsourcing information and communicating outside the mainstream uncovers a lot of things that are spot on. And those things then become targets for more effective action measures. So when I watch this video by Prather, I discard the things I disagree with, attribute some of the hyperbole to anger, look at the things that make sense to me, and feel a little more knowledgeable about this mess the Biden junta has involved America in. At least I have informational things to process in my brain than the "controlled narrative." One of those things is that this Afghanistan mess might be intentional by the people behind the scenes, not due to incompetence by Biden. Nobody knows for certain, but this is something we all need to look out for. After all, these assholes stole a presidential election right in front of the whole world using the flimsiest of lies to sell it. What won't they do? And if a theory or speculation is wrong, who cares? At least when we talk about it, we are looking. Most people have good brains, so the truth will emerge over time. It always does. But it will take a lot longer to emerge if we don't look. That means I, for one, look. This is why I am glad Jeffrey Prather exists. And I am glad he is on the same side as I am. Fighting a war is not playing gotcha with syllogisms behind a computer screen and posturing. It's messy and it's violent (which is the reason to look at the Taliban executions--to get a conceptual referent) and it's full of deception. I only have a small voice right now, but the OL audience includes many prominent people. Silent, but they're here. So I can pound at the "controlled narrative" and call for people to identify before judging, to make their best speculations when they don't know for sure, to keep their eyes open and distrust liars who seek power. Which means, use their reason. That's one thing, at least, I can do. I am sure there will be other things before too long. For all the intellectual depths and research and arguments and so on, it boils down to this. I intend to do my part to make sure we win and the bad guys lose. It's that simple. I hope you do, too.
