  1. Here is something far more important in terms of the Deep State unraveling.

    Trump Releases Statement After His Supreme Court Appointees Block Joe Biden’s OSHA Vax Mandate

    Quote

    The highest court of the land in a 6-3 ruling on Thursday blocked Biden’s vaccine mandate on private businesses with 100+ employees.

    All three of President Trump’s SCOTUS appointees, Gorsuch, Kavanagh and Barrett joined the other conservatives on the court and voted to strike down the OSHA mandate.

    “The Supreme Court has spoken, confirming what we all knew: Biden’s disastrous mandates are unconstitutional. Biden promised to shut down the virus, not the economy but he has failed miserably on both—and mandates would have further destroyed the economy,” Trump said in a statement.

    An analogy can be used here;  Oath Keepers and Seditious Conspiracy.

    William,

    And another analogy.

    If you think the Justice Department is acting in good faith, I have some bridges to sell to you.

    I am hearing talk over at Bannon that once they get power back, they are going to dismantle the FBI and throw some of the more illegal actors in prison. (The FBI was originally made to fight bootlegging hootch. That time has long passed.)

    What that means is this is being discussed in high places in the Trump universe.

    So I don't care what the current DOJ does. These are the same people who don't mind people they don't like being kept in solitary confinement for months over what they themselves call a misdemeanor. They don't mind entrapping others.

    This is the USA and not some tin-pot dictatorship. We are not supposed to have political crimes or thought crimes. Yet we do.

    I have no intention of treating the case you just mentioned as the same thing as dispassionate or fair justice. It's horseshit from an illicit administration that is crashing and burning right in front of our eyes.

    Millions I tell ya!   

    Peter,

    Not millions. As of the end of August of last year, the number of COVID vaccine-related deaths in America was estimated at about 150,000. I don't know about world numbers. See here:

    Estimating the number of COVID vaccine deaths in America
    By Steve Kirsch, Jessica Rose, Mathew Crawford

    I have only skimmed this over, but from what I gather from watching Steve Kirsch, he uses information coming from VAERS (the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) of the US government in addition to other things. See here:

    VAERS

     

    Steve looks like one of the best sources out there for this, so if you are interested in skimming over his stuff, here is the link to his Gettr account:

    0f1639d58b0550a92c653cfb436d2e23_400x400
    GETTR.COM

    Philanthropist. Executive Director, COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund.

     

    And here is a longish report he did recently on Substack:

    How to verify for yourself that over 150,000 Americans have been killed by the COVID vaccines

    https%3A%2F%2Fbucketeer-e05bbc84-baa3-43
    STEVEKIRSCH.SUBSTACK.COM

    And keep in mind that the Pfizer trial showed this might save 10,000 lives (best case). So we are killing 15 people to maybe save 1 death from COVID. And they are mandating we take it.

    I have only skimmed that one, too. I'm not discussing the substance of these reports so much as presenting them to up the seriousness level.

     

    I don't know where you got someone saying millions. I have not heard that. But I do know that Steve Kirsch is a reliable source.

    has discussion of HFRS been killed? 

    William,

    No.

    Tilting toward the predator class narrative, though, just to say we're discussing something is of no interest to me right now. Not even debunking the predator class narrative.

    I said I'm keeping an eye on it. That's me re my own interests. I don't have the time to take a course in virology just to win gotchas. My interest is that of a layman at the present looking out at a disaster-level danger I have heard warnings about.

    And I'm getting my information from people I trust, not first-hand. There's nothing wrong with that, either, but there's not much to discuss unless we start going into what XXX really meant or if YYY is crooked or whatever, etc., etc., etc. Or we can do data and jargon dumps on each other.

    None of that interests me.

    I'm thinking more about the Olympic athletes. In the wise words of Dr. Malone, sending them over to China in the current context is nucking futs. That's his phrase.

    I don't think he is speaking lightly. He doesn't want them to risk getting sick and dying.

    I'm also thinking about what happens if the world isolates China in a quarantine-like manner.

    But you are free to discuss this disease from any perspective you wish if you can gin up interest.

  6. I finally got to the bottom of Ann Coulter's venom against Trump.

    For example:

    A lot of people have wondered, what's her problem?

    But then you remember she is a media creature, created by and for the media, and has her own price.

    Ah...

    Now I understand...

    That even clears up her affair with Bill Maher for me.

    There's no ad, but if there were, it would read:

    For a lot of money, conservative lady firebrand will allow liberal men to...

    Er...

    Well...

    Just follow the money.

    Gotta love Ann.

    It's clear the DOJ had some role in the events of January 6

     

     

    Here is an article about this segment. For those who prefer to read, there is plenty of transcript.

    MUST WATCH: Tucker Carlson Questions Sham 1/6 Committee’s Sudden Acknowledgement and Defense of Ray Epps: “It’s Clear the DOJ Had a Role in Jan 6th”

    From the article:

    Quote

    The left’s charade is falling to pieces.

    After an absolutely explosive day of Senate testimony on Capitol Hill, Tucker Carlson came out on his nightly show and delivered a knockout blow to the corrupt DC Swamp, slamming the DOJ for its “clear role” in the January 6th “Fedsurrection” and calling out Pelosi’s sham 1/6 commission for their sudden defense of suspected-Fed and notorious 1/6 catalyst Ray Epps

    “It’s been clear for a while now that the department of justice probably had some role in the events of January 6th – it’s obvious. And after hearings on Capitol Hill today it became even clearer.”

    During his latest must-watch segment, Carlson highlighted Senator Ted Cruz’s pointed exchange with FBI National Security Branch Executive Assistant Director Jill Sanborn, blasting her for refusing to answer several simple, straightforward questions about the Government’s involvement in 1/6.

    The shocking lack of answers all but served as a confirmation that federal agents were actively participating in the events on 1/6.

    Sanborn cannot even answer Cruz when he asks point-blank if any Federal agents “committed any crimes of violence,” which – as Carlson correctly points out – is something that should be easily deniable.

    . . .

    After calling out Sanborn, Carlson also torched Assistant US Attorney General Matt Olson for his equally pathetic testimony from earlier in the day. Despite acknowledging Ray Epps’ existence, Olson refused to provide any information whatsoever about him when he was being questioned by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR).

    “I simply don’t have any information at all about that individual,” Olson responded.

    Once again, not nearly a good enough answer for Carlson, who sarcastically added, “They really expect you to believe that. So, the DOJ knows nothing about Ray Epps – the guy on the most wanted list – Right…”

    It gets even worse since the Dems tried to do damage control and crapped all over themselves. (They tweeted that they had already interviewed Ray Epps after denying they knew nothing about him for months. The good news is Adam Kinzinger's claims that Ray Epps didn't do anything wrong and that he never worked for law enforcement are doing more to sink his political career than all the anti-Trump and RINO bullshit he has spewed out over years.)

    Ray Epps is just one of a slew of people and problems with DOJ involvement in the January 6, 2021 event at the Capitol. The Deep State staged a false flag event and, like I said earlier, they are birthing one mother of an entrapment suit against the government--a class action suit at that.

    She thinks she's found a way to make both sides happy... Gently convince people to do what you want, and they'll be as happy as you.

    So my point is not that I trust her, but that she has half of the picture correct. She at least feels coercion isn't right (though she is arguing for efficacy in the video), even if she doesn't really respect people's autonomy/self-ownership. As you can see from the example above, some people have convinced themselves they are being righteous when they are completely off the spectrum.

    D,

    I think you are reading her mind too much (which, I believe, is exactly what she wants you to do). She apparently had no problem with fear mongering for two years (I've never heard this fear is ineffective crap before), then suddenly she does. And she has the answer. Is that because she feels coercion is wrong? Hell, I doubt it. If I had to speculate, I think she found her niche market amidst the noise so now she can stand out. And she is going for it.

    But I do know why it is easy to get taken in by her. She used the full array of conman tricks (or in her case, conwoman).

    1. She is pretty.
    2. She speaks with certainty.
    3. She speaks in a tone that conveys she has your best interests at heart.
    4. She is likeable.
    5. She gives the impression--through a few well-framed facts/assertions--that she is very knowledgeable and skilled at what she is talking about.
    6. She is enthusiastic as all get out.
    7. She promises you a lavish but unearned future divorced from reality. (In her case, a world where only information matters to people, not fear. A world where you do not need to feel afraid ever again. And a world where she and her fellow predators will keep you from getting a deadly virus forever and ever amen.)
    8. She has the plan all set and ready to go.
    9. She has her unique selling proposition entangled with her incongruous "secret truth" (which is for her, fear is not a motivator for human decisions or actions).
    10. Her call to action is for you to do nothing but blindly obey her with something so easy, you won't even notice, and all will be yours.

    I could go on and on, and believe me, there is a lot more. Note that these are traits that people generally value among their intimates. They are also traits that lull people into submission by shutting down their defenses and their reason.

    Where you see a bit of a dingbat lying to herself, I see a skilled con.

    Study cons a bit and I believe you will see it, too.

    btw - I suggest you don't feel bad or defensive about being taken in by this stuff. (It stings, but that is only a cognitive bias kicking in.) God knows I have been taken in enough times. The trick is to learn it, not defend the story and image the con paints to you. If you learn it, you will be far more immune.

    Even Cialdini came up with his persuasion stuff from being conned too often. He openly says he is not the world's greatest genius, but the world's biggest sucker. :) So he set off trying to learn why. The rest is history. And he gave the rest of us some powerful tools to diffuse this crap. (Or even use if you have a heart of larceny. :) )

    From the article:

    Quote

    On Monday night Project Veritas released their latest investigation and it was a BOMBSHELL! Project Vertias released never before seen military documents regarding the origins of Covid-19, gain-of-function research, vaccines, potential treatments and the government’s effort to conceal everything.

    The newly released military documents contradict Dr. Fauci’s testimony under oath.

    . . .

    On Tuesday morning Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine, and Dr. Naomi Wolf, a former Clinton adviser and democracy activist, joined Steve Bannon on The War Room to respond to the Project Veritas bombshell.

    Dr. Malone called it “bigger than the Pentagon Papers.”

    Dr. Wolf called it “manslaughter of millions of people coordinated at the highest levels.”
    Boom!

    Naomi Wolf: The fact that Dr. Fauci grossly perjured himself is hugely apparant. It is the least of the crimes if indeed these are verified documents… I can’t overstate this, this is a premeditated kind of manslaughter of millions of people coordinated at the highest levels according to these documents. Treatments that would have saved lives were intentionally or reportedly intentionally suppressed.

     

     

    I believe in the patriotism of the DARPA and military people making sure this gets to the public, and I am deeply grateful for what they are doing, but I also have a sneaking suspicion that Biden & Co., maybe even Hillary Clinton & Co. in some capacity, are now going to use Fauci as the fall guy for every Democrat woe under the sun. The reason? They are letting this unfold without weird deaths happening to the people involved.

    But I also think the cover-up went on too long and now it will unfold to the detriment of the predator class in a form that can't be stopped.

    Quote

    Many people asked me about “Ebola- or Marburg- like hemorrhage fever virus” in 🇨🇳. Based on my internal sources from 🇨🇳, here are billet points of my opinions:

    1. Multiple sources showed that there were hemorrhage fever patients in Xi’an. Xi’an is in lockdown with 13M citizens.

    2. Certain source told me there were patients infected by Marburg virus from CCP’s lab. But I can’t confirm it. Without lab results on clinical samples (Antigens or Antibodies), it’s difficult to confirm the pathogens.

    3. Viral hemorrhage fever can be caused by Ebola, Marburg, Lassa, Dengue, or yellow fever viruses. To note, CCP put huge efforts in searching, collecting & studying such lethal viruses for Unrestricted Bioweapon program for decades. Some outcomes were applied to design SARS-CoV-2.

    4. Winter Olympic is coming. CCP controls all the information.

    • Is the pathogen from nature or weaponized?
    • Whether such pathogen(s) from 🇨🇳 will spread worldwide like #COVID?
    • Will it cause a pandemic again?

    It requires a full investigation. People must know the truth!

     

    Where--in today's world--can people get the truth from any government?

    TRANSCRIPT (thanks to yours truly :) ) :

    Quote

    BANNON: The concept of mass formation psychosis came up. The thing went totally viral. A lot of that, though as this audience knows, is stuff that Dr. Malone has talked about on the show for a year-and-a-half since the spring of 2020. But people... the Rogan audience, was thirsty for it, [they] had not heard that information, particularly with no filter, with no screen. It was Dr. Malone for three hours. 

    I want to go back to Dr. Malone. Dr. Malone, we're going to get Desmond on. We're going to spend this week going through this mass formation psychosis to make sure we understand it because, clearly, the apparatus is bound and determined to shut this conversation down immediately. Like they shut the conversation down, or tried to, of what you talked about in vaccines. 

    Is the?... I want to just go to China for a second while I have you... So now they're talking about using your vaccine, or your experimental gene therapy. Is what the Chinese communist party did in forcing vaccinations, or whatever this thing is they had, on 1.2 billion people... could that be exacerbating what now looks like an outbreak of we don't know what, we're not sure of what? Because the information coming out is so limited. Could that be one of the factors that could be exacerbating whatever new things [are] coming out of China?

    MALONE: Okay, here. So here's what we know, Steve. And I want to cite Geert Vanden Bossche. Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche, a leading academic and industrial vaccinologist, who is my colleague, and I'll be doing an extended filming with him and Mattias (Desmet) in Spain shortly, just a few days from now. Mattias... 

    Well, Gert has made the point now, for months and months and months, that vaccinating into a pandemic will drive the development of escape mutants that are resistant to vaccination. The CCPs practice has mirrored that of the Western world and has resulted in a perfect storm of environment for developing [a] super virus. 

    They're using the language that this is a hemorrhagic fever virus. If that's the case, then it would be very odd that this would be something caused by a coronavirus. That terminology is usually used for viruses in the family of Marburg and Ebola. So this is something that many people have figured is the development of a rapidly spreading Ebola-like hemorrhagic fever virus. I... 

    But we have no knowledge of whether that's what's going on here or not. So we don't know if what we're dealing with is a further mutation of the SARS-CoV-2 or related coronavirus, or is it a new threat that's emerging in China.

    BANNON: Dr. Malone, what would you recommend if you were in the oval office a day with Joe Biden? What would you recommend that Fauci and CDC, etc., have to do immediately? What would Dr. Malone's recommendation be?

    MALONE: Absolutely sending athletes and the whole entourage to China right now is madness. As I said on Rogan, famously now, it's nucking futs and we'll just leave it at that. We have to isolate this country politically and biologically. 

    There's no question in my mind that they did not drop the curtain on international travel when they knew that SARS-CoV-2 was ripping through Wuhan. They left the place open through the end of the Chinese New Year when everybody in China travels around. And they let the populous travel to the United States and the West. This has to be stopped. 

    And, absolutely, I'm aligned with your prior speaker. We're dealing with a rogue regime that preys on its population, has no ethics, and yet we have the likes of Blackrock actively engaging with them. And they're using your money to do it. They're using your money through their investment funds to corrupt the world right now, and actively engage with the CCP. That must stop. 

    BANNON: Dr. Malone, I know you're down for a big conference. We're going to hopefully get you on tomorrow or the next day to give details. You can't talk about it right now. But can you give people how they get to you, Substack, Gettr? You're on fire everywhere. How do people get access to your thinking and your writing?

    MALONE: So Gettr is the primary platform. Thank you, Steve and colleagues, for putting that out and giving me an alternative since Twitter has decided that we... all information about vaccine risks is banned. So Gettr. 

    And then the Substack is at R W Malone, MD and Substack. And we'll be putting out a Substack later with all of the key academic references that are used by Mattias Desmet. He's pissed as hell by all the slander coming on and he's fired up too. And his book is coming out in Dutch shortly on this. What you're dealing with is somebody who's at the forefront of his a field, a full professor, and he's being attacked by the usual ankle biter strategy of junior professors that are being cited by the likes of AP, Reuters, etc., to refute what they don't even understand and didn't take the time to investigate.

    BANNON: Dr. Malone. Thank you so much. And thank you being the... not getting beat down by these guys and standing in the breech. Incredible. Incredible patriotism, bravery. We thank you. And the people, Lao Bai Xing, thank you for having their backs against this murderous regime financed by Wall Street. Thank you so much, Dr. Malone.

  15. More news on CirstenW.

    Some of the fringe QAnon people really have it out for her.

    They are saying she faked her own death to hide because she embezzled about $700k to a cool million from a charity. They are also saying she is a man, not a woman.

    (Here is just one example. This lady says CirstenW and Timothy Holmseth, who she calls a well-known grifter who preys on situations like the Casey Anthony mess, stole almost a million dollars from Field McConnell and Guy Brummell's children's foundation. Incidentally, I tried running these guys down and tried to get the name of their children's foundation, but found a wormhole called "time suck" too big to go into.)

    :)

    I, myself, don't know enough to agree or disagree and I don't have time to do it right. I do know that I never resonated with CirstenW and it was almost visceral. But if she is really dead, I mean no disrespect.

     

    On the NPC front, I found a really cute meme out there:

    I think what she meant is that fear is not a good way to help people make positive changes. She was being honest, she just isn't good with words. That's what I got from it.

    D,

    I fully disagree. Why? Because she doesn't want to inform the public. She wants to manipulate it into doing what she wants it to do (allegedly "make positive changes").

    And even in the case of making positive changes, fear happens to be an excellent motivator. It's a great way to "help" people make positive changes.

    ("If you don't do XXX, I will fire your ass,"--when XXX is something positive that needs to be changed to and the bad habit is ingrained. Or, "If you don't do XXX, I will beat the shit out of you," when XXX is something positive that hasn't been happening but needs to happen. And so on.)

    Ask any kid if he hasn't made a "positive change" without fear some of the time, say, to brush his teeth.

    I actually found the lady to be perfectly good with words.

    So, no, I don't trust her a bit. I don't think she was being honest at all. I could almost see her looking toward her paycheck from her masters as she was talking...

    Wait, now CNN's chief potato, Brian Stetler, is calling out the CDC? Have we now crossed over into the upside-down from STRANGER THINGS?
     

     

    TG,

    OMG.

    It's way worse than what you said.

    Look at the part before they talked about the CDC.

    Granted, the CDC part is awful for the CDC and the COVID narrative, but any virus (or toxic message) needs a conduit to spread its mayhem. And media is the CDC's conduit.

    So let's look at the conduit.

    Genius lady doctor Lucy McBride actually said this on air:

    Quote

    LM: We have an obligation to help people frame risk, to deliver fact-based nuanced information. Fear does harm. It only makes people afraid. It doesn't affect people's decisions.


    . . .

    Fear isn't motivating. Fear just makes people afraid.

    Wait, wait, wait.

    Did I just hear that right? Doofus lady says fear doesn't affect people's decisions? Fear isn't motivating?

    What planet does this lady think she's on?

    Fear is one of the prime motivators inside the human brain. Just ask the amygdala. :) 

    Any propagandist worth his salt knows that fear is the glue that holds a crowd together. Gin up the fear, then point people to a scapegoat while telling them you have the solution to their fears, then watch what happens. This has not changed throughout human history and it always works (unless overused, which is what happened at CNN these days).

    Why would a lady with PhD qualifications say something so stupid and so wrong on TV?

    As I have studied propaganda, the reason I see is she is trying to deflect. The media screwed up big-time on COVID and overused fear to the point where it's not working anymore. The boy cried wolf too often and nobody believes him anymore.

    So rather than just letting go of the fear porn (we can call it the fear-based core story), this lady is saying fear is not relevant to people's behavior. It's only relevant to how they feel, essentially their mood.  A friggin' PhD said that! She used different words, but that's essentially what she said.

    But why this segment now? Well, it sounds to me like some big money people are roasting the CNN news staff for all the fear porn that is losing ratings. 

    OK. Someone should tell doofus lade you don't solve a problem by denying it.

    And me? Hell, I don't mind. The lady is a doofus and beyond correcting. She is either too stupid or too dishonest to correct. So I hope CNN continues denying the problem. As CNN exists, it needs to go off the air and into history. I don't know if it can be fixed.

     

    My view of the problem got confirmed by the next guest Brian Stelter brought on, Oliver Darcy.

    BS: Is the media, at this point, out of touch with the public about COVID?

    OD: A lot of the media does seem, when I look at it and travel the country, to be very out of touch with people. I mean, when you travel the country, people are not living in the same bubble  it seems that most of the media is messaging toward. And so I think this is an issue because, if people are tuning out, what's going on in cable news? If we're not messaging toward the general population... They're just, you know, ignoring everything and living their lives and we're not really getting the information then need to them.

    (Hey! I just now noticed the initials. How apt. :) )

    Darcy basically said the media is no longer controlling people and lamenting that fact.

    This is what is behind their big problem over at CNN. They are not interested in informing people, but instead, they want to control people's behavior.

    They are not only screwing up big-time on that score, now they have to to let go of fear porn, and fear porn is the only thing that's worked for them consistently up to now. Add a load of fear to cherry-picked news, or even made-up news, and you change people's behavior. Man, how that has worked for them over the years.

    But now that goddam boy cried wolf too often.

    So they've got nothing. Suddenly, they are floundering around trying to come up with something that will work, but they're not even addressing human motivation correctly. All they're doing is denying the role of fear and noting that they are getting more irrelevant with each passing day. 

    Thank God and may it continue.

    I even think they followed with derogatory comments on the CDC because they were talking to the money people who are chewing on their asses. They are trying to point the finger at the CDC and say, "It's all their fault. It's not our fault. It's their fault."

    With just a little work, this thing could be right out of Atlas Shrugged.

  18. btw - For people in O-Land who get punked or are flat-out wrong about something, I suggest you handle it the way I just did.

    Normally, we get longwinded explanations of how the correction is technically right, but can be interpreted in a certain way, except in this case one has to admit it wasn't the case, so it was right. But, the reason the poster made the mistake is that he defined a word differently than is usual, he was actually thinking about an exception made in 1648 by Thomas Hobbes, and Rand had said something similar but not quite that, he lost his job, his house burned down, his mother died and the dog ate his friggin' homework.

    The truth is, nobody gives a damn. 

    I'm not pointing the finger at myself and preening about how virtuous, rational and worthy of praise I am for doing the right thing (although that's not a bad idea :evil: -- hmmmm... :) ). 

    I just think someone at times has to come out and say it's OK to fuck up.

    Own it and move on.

    It's OK.

    The world will still be there and you will still have everything you had before the fuck-up and oopsie, except maybe some razzing for a while.

    And if you can't stand razzing, what the hell are you doing online where there are trolls galore?

  19. All fixed now. I even added a note to my original post.

    Here is Joe Rogan's real account over on Gettr (@joerogan).

    Joe Rogan

    It looks like this, but I inserted the red circles for comment.

    1. Yup. Joe joined Gettr in January, 2022. This could get confusing because if you start looking at his posts, you see they go back years. I think Joe managed to copy all of his tweets from Twitter over to Gettr.

    2. As of right now, he has 9 million followers.

    3. Today is January 10, but his last post there was the day he joined, January 2. I wonder why... Waiting for Truth Media? Too busy? Fighting with Secret Service? Offers of money or something money-related? Something else?

    Looking at some of the comments on this post at the @JoeRoganExprnce page, and they're calling it out as a fake account, and to report it...

     

    TG,

    I got punked.

    And it wasn't even a very good punking, but I walked right in like a doofus.

    Oh well.

    Dayaamm!

    Gettr gained one million users this last week from Dr. Malone, Joe Rogan and other famous people migrating over there.

    Joe Rogan just posted this on Gettr.

    I think he's serious, too.

    LATER EDIT: No, it is not serious and it is not Joe Rogan. I got punked when I posted that.

    Marc,

    I've got something really nice about Trudeau.

    Watch what happens when he sits down beside Brazilian President Bolsonaro.

    Heh heh heh...

  23. President Trump mentions Darren Beatie by name.

    He's one of the stars uncovering the the January 6 false flag manipulations by the Deep State. Another star is Julie Kelly from American Greatness, but I'll go into her later.

    For now, check this out:

    Congratulations to Darren Beattie and Revolver News who have exposed so much of the Fake News’ false narrative about January 6th. Because of Darren’s work, and others, Americans aren’t buying into the Unselect Committee’s attempts to smear 75 million (plus!) Americans. The newly minted term “Fedsurrection,” was even trending!

    :)

    I will be discussing Darren's work later. But if you want to read something, go to the Revolver News link in one of my posts above.
