Michael Yeadon has speculated that the simultaneous abandonment by the major nation states around the world of established pandemic protocols for policies of mandatory mask wearing by the public, lockdowns and lockouts of commerce and general sociality, and then the pushing on the whole of the public a handful of experimental ”vaccination” treatments during a pandemic, requires special, coordinated action and agency. Extraordinary evidence demands extraordinary explanation. Conspiracy was what he came up with, though he was not privy to the insider information that would allow him to point to the culprits — of whom the conspiracy might consist.

If that be a reasonable extrapolation, then the mind lurches to motive.

Given the opportunity of insider players like Antony Fauci and Peter Daszak and a manure-spreader full of other bureaucrats and politicians and science-technicians on the make, a financial motive must be considered. But the mind reels. Could this really be ”all about” the moolah? Surely power lust and the insiders’ itch for a Great Reset to a new technocratic totalitarianism is the driving passion!

But maybe it really is all — or mostly, or (crucially) effectively — a plunder scheme, a public fraud for pecuniary reasons. And this low-down dirty element has risen to public attention. Now. It is happening first Down Under.

I almost never quote other people’s blog posts whole. But I feel a need to call attention to a news development of great significance, and one way to do that is to mirror others’ work here. This story is huge in its implications.

Former Australian Member of Parliament Says Pfizer and AstraZeneca Paid Lobbyists to Direct Australia’s Leaders to Push Vaccine Mandates

By Cristina Laila 
Published October 2, 2021 at 9:06pm

A former Australian member of Parliament came out and said Pfizer and AstraZeneca are paying lobbyists to direct Australia’s leaders to push vaccine mandates.

Clive Palmer, leader of the United Australia Party claimed ousted New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian was told she wouldn’t be charged in a corruption probe if she imposed a vaccine mandate.

Palmer made these statements a couple weeks ago but it has garnered a lot of attention this weekend after Berejiklian resigned in disgrace following a corruption probe.

Two weeks ago, Palmer said Pfizer and AstraZeneca were paying lobbyists tens of millions of dollars to direct Australia’s liberal leaders to push the double jab.

According to Palmer, Berejiklian, who was under a corruption probe by the ICAC at the time, was told if she imposed strict lockdowns and vaccine mandates, she wouldn’t be charged.

Shortly before Berejiklian resigned, she told Sydney residents that if they don’t take the Covid jab, they face total social isolation indefinitely after the stay-at-home order ends in December.

Berejiklian made history for overseeing one of the most fascistic regimes in modern history like nothing we have witnessed in the Western world.

It appears she was bowing to Big Pharma lobbyists and special interest groups once again proving Covid mandates have NOTHING to do with science or saving lives.

Clive Palmer told reporters of Berejiklian: “The only way she gets out of the inquiry is if she pushes the double jab.”

A lefty reporter pushed back on Clive Palmer: “You think the premier of New South Wales is trying to destroy businesses?”

“I do,” Palmer replied. “She’s being directed by lobbyists in Sydney, who is being paid by AstraZeneca and by Pfizer tens of millions of dollars to get these policies through, to make sure the vaccines get pushed…that’s my personal knowledge and I’m happy to make a statement here, to police, to anyone.”

Domino Effect: New South Wales Sinks Into Political Disarray and Chaos After Six Officials Including its Premier and Deputy Premier Exit

A total of six officials have resigned in the span of three days following tyrannical New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s difficult resignation on Friday.  Berjiklian announced her ‘difficult decision’ to resign after a corruption watchdog announced it was looking into her ‘alleged misconduct.’  It was the corruption charges that finally brought the tyrannical leader to step down.

Following NSW Premier Berejiklian’s exit, her Deputy Premier John Barilaro also announced his resignation and will leave parliament. Barilaro said the constant pressure from media scrutiny and his defamation case against YouTuber Jordan Shanks is a ‘big reason’ for his departure from politics.

YouTube star Jordan Shanks responded to Barilaro’s departure and attacks.  Barilaro accused the YouTube star of “vile racism” after Shanks called him ‘a conman to the core, powered by spaghetti.’  “FriendlyJordies” accused Barilaro of using his press conference to smear him as racist.

News.com reported:

New South Wales is in a state of political disarray and chaos, facing multiple costly and distracting by-elections and an uncertain path towards post-Covid freedom.

In the space of three days, NSW has lost its Premier and Deputy Premier, a senior Cabinet Minister, three veteran Coalition members of parliament and will likely need to find a new Treasurer in coming weeks.

The shock resignation on Friday of Premier Gladys Berejiklian, both from the state’s top job and parliament representing the seat of Willoughby, has sparked a domino effect of departures.

Following her today is Deputy Premier John Barilaro, who announced he’s stepping aside from the role as well as quitting as Nationals leader and exiting politics, leaving vacant his regional seat of Monaro.

And on Sunday, Transport Minister Andrew Constance confirmed he would leave the NSW Cabinet and quite state politics for a tilt at a federal seat.

Those three departures will each require a by-election.

Speculation is mounting that more departures from the Coalition ranks could come within days.

Now, just a week away from the end of Sydney’s lockdown and the beginning of a new era in the coronavirus pandemic – one the rest of the country is closely watching – the focus is firmly on the government’s internal woes instead.

Apparently, the judicial system still works in Australia.

Ok, We’ll Ask The Question, If New South Wales PM Resigned For Pushing VAX With Millions From Pfizer, What About Old Joe?

by L Todd Wood October 4, 2021

We Already Know Biden Crime Family Takes Bribes…Just Read Hunter’s Laptop

Please Follow us on GabMindsTelegramRumbleGab TVGETTR

This morning saw six more politicians on the staff of former New South Wales, Australia Premier Gladys Berejiklian resign over corruption allegations. The crux of the issue is that Berejiklian has reportedly been taking tens of millions of dollars for pushing the big Pharma vaccines on the Australian people, locking them down, and destroying lives and businesses. 

A former Australian member of Parliament came out and said Pfizer and AstraZeneca are paying lobbyists to direct Australia’s leaders to push vaccine mandatesreported The Gateway Pundit.

Clive Palmer, leader of the United Australia Party claimed ousted New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian was told she wouldn’t be charged in a corruption probe if she imposed a vaccine mandate.

We at CDMedia believe we are at just the beginning of further revelations of politicians across the globe taking bribes for acting in big pharama’s interest at the expense of their citizens, even to the point of murder. These actions were taken in conjunction with the globalist CCP virus information operation which also murdered millions, pushed by the Chinese Communist Party and enabled by collaborators in leadership positions in the West. Andrew Cuomo’s actions regarding nursing home deaths in NYC come to mind. 

CDMedia has been reporting on Biden Crime Family corruption since early 2019 in Ukraine, and then the revelations from the Hunter Biden laptop. That investigation showed in fine print Hunter and Joe taking billions from the CCP and 10% going to ‘the big guy’, and Hunter saying he has given his father half his earning for decades. The laptop showed the Biden Crime Family using State Department officials and FBI agents to pursue deals and bribes overseas. The Daily Mail reported much of this. 

Are we to believe that Old Joe has not also taken millions from big Pharma in order to push vaccines, and lockdowns on the American people?

Enquiring minds want to know. It’s a reasonable question.

CDMedia, October 4, 2021.

And then when you realize that Big Pharma is not just an outsider company bribing its way into the federal government’s inner sanctum, to make an extra-big ”killing” on the market — when you realize that Big Pharma is as closely tied to the federal regulatory apparatus as military contractors are to the Pentagon — then you may have stumbled on to the clue to the biggest swindle and power grab of the ”democratic” west.

It is not just bribes and graft and payoffs, at least not in America. The crime here is integral to the progressives’ beloved Administrative State.

So we can expect the center-left, at least, to fight these accusations hard. Not only are their fortunes at stake, so also are their ”sacred” [profane] honor, and — considering the torch-and-pitchfork potential — their very lives.

Not to mention their vision of ”social democracy.”

The far left will increasingly break away from this crowd, along the lines of thought leaders like Jimmy Dore and Glenn Greenwald. But what will the core grifter set do?

Find your pitchfork, and the pitch to keep torches burning, for if we do not hold all the grifters to account — and take the legal proceedings, perhaps, all the way to The Hague, for crimes against humanity — and make charges stick, it will merely embolden them.

And of our progressive friends? Do to them what they have done to individualists, and what must be done to progressive pols: Ridicule them; marginalize them. Tar them with the same brush as the insiders. For it is their ideas that have justified the institutions that have enabled this Crime of the Millennium. Now is no time for squeamishness. All these people must be humiliated and driven from political life, completely removed from power.

That, or this will all just fizzle.

When confronting an unknown, it strikes me that a proper assessment must begin not merely by figuring out “the likeliest” suspect causes but also a much more complete list of the possible suspects.

One of the interesting things about a programmed society is that people reflexively know precisely what they must not even consider.

For example, when COVID broke out in China, we quickly learned that there were virology institutes there. So of course we should have considered, immediately, the possibility of not only gain-of-function research going on, but also its use as bioweaponry.

That is, a rational person would immediately know that an act of war may have occurred.

But fine, upstanding citizens in the west are so fearful of looking foolish, so fearful of a real war with real consequences at home, so phobic even about identifying anyone “outside” as a possible enemy (this is the leftist prejudice), that we all immediately feel the taboo against talking about these possibilities. Even I, who thought these thoughts immediately, hesitated to make much of them.

This is programming.

Whether said programming is the result of psychological warfare from the Chinazis, from the CIA, from the old Soviet legacy, or whether it is an invisible hand result of the memes themselves — the egregori of the noösphere — I don’t know. I suspect a little of each.

In any case, right now, there is the Delta variant and a few other strains of the ’rona percolating through society. As soon as we heard this, what did we think?

Well, the likeliest provenance?

1. Normal mutation of a virus. Zoonotic, that is the technical term few of us could remember before 2020.

But we should have considered two other possibilities, at least:

2. Immune escape from leaky vaccines (Geert Vanden Bossche’s warning) or perhaps even poorly implemented therapeutics; or

3. Just the latest wave of bioweaponry release by the CCP/globalist cadres to effect a political restructuring, giving it some breathing room to avoid calamity that they sit upon, nervously.

These more minatory possibilities should be considered for the same reason that the panicky folk insisted on theorizing about the death of many, many more millions of people: the precautionary principle.

But the thing is, when you consider all options in the face of an unknown, not just the one actually pushed (zoonotic origin and worldwide decimating plague), the policy response would be radically different.

How so? Well, from a war scenario perspective, what the world’s nations have done is surrender.

They have done so by crippling their productive capacity and sapping their will to fight. Instead of encouraging bravery, our rulers shepherded us like bleating sheep. And these sheep? They began mobbing for salvation, suppressing independent thinkers in the herd who might (horrors!) somehow jinx the shepherds’ plan to save us. The one thing no one considered was prepare for a fight. To become stronger not weaker. To become active not indolent. To become fearsome not fearful.

The thing is, actual courage would have made us all healthier.

Despair and lethargy need not have been the ineluctable social result of the new disease. I say that, even if — as appears now wildly unlikely — the disease proved of zoonotic origin, and that the death toll sans mitigation efforts would have been much larger, we would have wound up better off regardless. But I don’t believe either of those two iffy suppositions. I believe the evidence that has been accumulating — that this pandemic was the result of gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China — and I suspect that it may very well have been purposely leaked for political or strategic reasons. I also would bet (were a counterfactual gamble a live option) that a reaction of courage would have spurred us to do what we should have done immediately: engage in OPEN DISCUSSION of a wide variety of treatments, and thereby save millions of lives. Indeed, much of the death count of the last year and a half was preventable not by mitigation but by evidence-based medical treatments (accommodating some good-old-fashioned medical artistry). Sadly, the upshot of the frightened reaction has been massive destruction on multiple levels.

I chiefly blame Donald Trump, whose platforming of the man who funded the virus led to the general panic and to the vaxx-craze — his temptation appears to have been his pathetic, narcissistic need to play Savior.

We cannot really blame the Democrats, who surely capitalized on the leadership collapse, for they are ideological cultists, and cultists gonna cult. Their whole philosophy is servility and the promotion of a gimme-gimme culture, not a culture of courage. One shouldn’t blame them, exactly. One should scorn them as quisling fools. But Republicans have hardly been much better. It is the nature of the GOP to tag along behind the Democracy like the whining mutant crying “too fast! too fast!” but never effectively stopping the parade of decline.

Now, you might be wondering — hey, Republicans tend to be opposed to the lockdowns, why couldn’t they have led better?

Well, Republicans are not leaders. They are followers by nature. Their “leaders” have been heavily over-burdened with ignoramuses and fools. President “W,” Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump all showed amazing degrees of ignorance about the world, and all three push a down-homey simpleton intellectual stance. This sort of cultural preference does not encourage people to courageously think through a problem.

When faced with an unknown, as the pandemic was for the first year, at least, you have to look to more intellectual types.

But our intelligentsia has been almost wholly captured by the cult of the omnipotent state, and the wider smarties class has so convinced itself of its self-groomed status as “the wise” that nearly the whole lot of them has become a herd of fools.

This much we know.

N. B. I am not saying that the bioweaponry possibility is likely. I do not believe the conjecture. But I have explained before why it is not “stupid,” why it is not “tinfoil hat,” as has been asserted. Smart people lay on this predictable anti-conspiracy chatter — most especially trotting out the related notion, the tired cliché that “big conspiracies are too difficult to keep secret” — because they do not research how psychological operations by disinformation artists actually work. That being said, recent reports about a Chinese plan to take their research to infect bats with an agent to prevent a zoonotic upgrade to a human-infecting strain suggests that the Chinese may be innocent. But that does not exonerate a possible (but still not likely) globalist sabotage to leak the virus. In the face of unknowns, one should be humble enough not to throw out dismissive theories unbacked by study. It is better to advance conjectures requiring further study.

What we know, pretty much for sure:

1. Fauci funded Daszak to create SARS-CoV-2 via gain-of-function research ostensibly to develop a robust mRNA vaccine in case of a zoonotic outbreak — but the carelessness or evil of folks on the ground at the Wuhan Institute for Virology (the Chinese who circuitously received U.S. tax funds) means that an iatrogenic leak preëmpted the “expected” breakout and “necessitated” a hasty and under-studied deployment of said treatments.

2. Democrats — from at least the Bill Clinton Administration on — have had tight, and quite suspicious, relationships with the “communists” in China.

Joe Biden’s son and brother received millions for their . . . influence peddling . .. from Chinese “businesses.” Biden was anti-Russia and pro-China as a campaign strategy. Democrats generally lambasted Trump for his half-quarantining travel embargo on China (early 2020) and for calling the new pathogen “the China virus,” saying it was “racist”to do so — even after they had been parlaying hatred and distrust, dangerously, at “Russia” for four years, on trumped-up (excuse me) evidence, now quite clear in the Mueller Report and later investigations.

What we must, therefore,* speculate:

3. Insiders in and around the Democratic Party and within the Administrative State (both Deep and Wide) have been working for decades to shift American power to China, in a great baton hand-off of imperialist power (let’s call it “The Mandate of Heaven”), just as British liberals and bankers did to America in the first half of the 20th century. Their reaction to the pandemic has fit in with this agenda, though most stumbled into it by Invisible Hand influences.

I think this is a pretty good surmise. It may not be true. I think it probably is, but am willing to drop it if falsified.

But the Democrats’ general preference for the Chinese commies is quite clear, and despicable. Further, the corruption of the Clintons was clear in the 1990s, just as the corruption of the Bidens is clear today.

Since the 1990s, to repeat, America’s globalist role has been deprecated in favor of China’s reëmergence. By whom? Name the suspects. Whoever; whomever. In any case, even our generals need to signal their willingness to go along with this transfer of power, hence the alleged call of General Milley to his counterpart in the Celestial Kingdom. These American leaders have to jockey for survival even as they negotiate the greatest power hand-off of all time.

What the precise machinations are I’ve barely a clue. But the American nation state is bankrupt financially and culturally — it is pretty much over.

The key drivers behind all this may be a tad more mundane than a conspiracy, I do not doubt:

  1. Big Pharma profits;
  2. Groupthink on a grand scale, a lemming stampede based on fear and disinformation
  3. The statist presumption of salvation by State intervention;
  4. Trump Derangement Syndrome and all the ideological baggage that entailed;
  5. The leftist assumption that ”we” (westerners; Americans) are bad and ”they” (whatever the Other of the Day may be) are innocent, victims of ”our” oppression;
  6. Media and political gains from dividing people against each other;
  7. A complete lack of leadership to marshal courage in Americans, whose experience is key worldwide;
  8. Civilizational Death Wish?!?!

But these underlying forces, which sure seem operative everywhere these days, do not explain everything. The existence of international elites as well as partisan American elites cannot be doubted, but their exact agenda? How coordinated is it? I suspect that there has been coordination at key moments all through the pandemic. But hey! Can all this be proven?

Well, not when evidence is deliberately lied about and suppressed, and dissidents de-platformed. And not, especially, while thought leaders continually accept stonewalling evasion as dissuasive of guilt, when it should be regarded as indicative of same. We have to accept common standards of evidence to prove something, and American politics has abandoned any shared standard of evidence since at least Reagan’s time, when GHWB and friends engaged in Iran-Contra.

* The imperative, here, lies in the Precautionary Principle, if applied in ways not accepted by those who usually try to implement it.

“Overuse of vaccines will drive the development of viruses that are able to evade vaccination.”

“The people that will suffer from this naïve, inappropriate policy of global universal forced vaccination when the potent virus escaped mutants develop will be those people at high risk, the people who most need the vaccine.”

Malone appearing on Jimmy Dore’s show.

Dr. Robert Malone, initial developer of the mRNA vaccine technology, basically (but not explicitly) backing up Geert Vanden Bossche’s fear of massive immune escape driven by universal vaccination with a limited-utility vaccine.

He goes on to say that he believes this technology can be good, but only if targeted at specific populations. Previously, he had noted that forced universal vaccination goes against everything he was taught about bioethics and proper, moral medical practice, which entirely rests upon informed consent. Everyone, he says, has the right to reject medical treatment.

I am only 17 minutes in, and cannot watch the whole thing right now. But Dr. Malone — whom if you have been following the subject* is almost certainly known to you — provides an important perspective on the current contagion and immediate over-reaction by governments and the karen class.

As all my friends know, I hazard that the current pandemic response is revolutionary: a psy-op, as well as an act of war by China and the elites against the American and world population. I also believe that . . . oh, well, you know what I suspect . . . that the new fascism has arrived, that Democrats are establishing it with lip-smacking glee at their new-found grip on power, and that all you who parrot the psy-op slogans (the CDC’s clever-but-evil assurance that the jabs are “Safe, effective, and free!”) are behaving like (and are the moral equivalent of) those Weimar Germans who saw hope in the chancellorship of You-Know-Who.


I hope I don’t understate things. I believe it is evil to promote universal vaccination with experimental technology whose utility is diminishing right before our eyes during the rollout.

If you spread the idea of universal vaccination, you are not merely wrong, you are morally wrong, and should stop. You don’t need to reject all vaccines or the idea of widespread use of some vaccines. You just need to look at the risks and look at standard Hippocratic practice to know that you are morally wrong to demand others “get the jab.”


Yesterday I shared on social media Richard Dolan’s excellent discussion of the current situation:

My only disagreement with Dolan is his underplaying of China’s role.

But be that as it may, we are now seeing the Therapeutic State, which Thomas Szasz warned about for decades — he saw its emergence in institutional psychiatry — come into its own as a totalitarian global order. The New World Order as prescribed by billionaires and Deep State operatives like George Herbert Walker Bush and “crazed futurists” is being established right now.

Dolan thinks there is hope, that we have time to stop it. I won’t be the one to dash that hope. For now.

or, Why the Best Bioweapon Is a Weak Bioweapon

Early in the “pandemic,” Scott Adams heard a rumor that the new virus affected non-Chinese more fatally than the Chinese, so he speculated. If I remember correctly, his speculation was that a biological weapon directed against a race of people was an inevitability, and that perhaps it was happening now. Specifically, the Chinese “communists” harbored an itch to eradicate Uyghurs. Perhaps SARS-CoV-2 was a new instrument of that ongoing genocide, and it had gotten out of hand.

I do not follow Adams, and do not know how he ultimately settled, in his mind, this Ultimate Uyghur Sanction, but I was impressed by one thing: Adams was willing to consider wild possibilities, including one that most people resisted on what seemed like grounds of squeamishness, the squeamishness of people afraid to be called “racist,” or “conspiracy theorists”: that the virus was built in a lab, and may have even been deliberately deployed as a bioweapon.

More than a year and a half later, and now the likelihood of the so-called Lab Leak Theory is commonly recognized as quite high. The worm turned.

Early on, I advised that, according to the Precautionary Principle, it was pure foolishness not to consider the possibility of a conscious bioweapon release. The reason to parlay the principle was simple: one considers a danger to prevent the worst outcomes. Early on, the Precautionary Principle was used to justify extreme mitigation efforts. But that was considering only the virus as a menace. By considering its threat potential, on the other hand, we might fend off other possibilities — those worse than a mere mass death.

Worse?

Yes.

The trouble with bioweaponry is that its deployment is negative sum: it is almost impossible to contain a virus, and the virus you deploy against your enemy will likely bite back at you.

With China, though, there is plenty of “surplus population.” So if the virus’s creators had prepared an inoculation in advance, and were willing to get rid of some population surplus, while also destroying much more of their enemy populations, that remains a possible strategy.

But there is a simpler method. If you want to destroy your enemies, what you want is not a real killer virus, but a virus that is actually not that dangerous … but which, with the right propaganda also deployed, can be made to seem more dangerous than it is. Indeed, a weak bioweapon is the perfect kernel for a psychological operation to get one’s enemies to over-react and weaken themselves.

Which is what happened.

Not only have western nations — weakened by standard churning state politics and China-funded race-baiting psy-ops — over-reacted to the contagion with psychologically destabilizing mask mandates and economically and culturally destructive lockdowns against commerce, they now deploy a very risky set of pseudo-vaccines, which may end up killing more people than the disease they are supposed to defend against.

I don’t know much about what is actually happening, but I do know that it is easy to manipulate mass men. 

And that is what we have here, the culture of Late Stage Churning State Capitalism is filled with Last Men, the gender-rending fools of our decadent culture. Our politics is now crazy, our government policies crazier, and our culture, laziest, ready for Lying Flat, the ultimate nincompoopery of a witless, ill-informed, culture of marks.

Grifted by the authorities, we accept as true things that are obviously false.

What things? You know, things like notion that the pandemic was an existential threat. No. Our reaction to it was. Are we fulfilling a civilizational death wish, or have we been pushed by Chinese (or globalist?) machinations?

I suspect the latter, but don’t rule out the former. Conspiracies are possible, but invisible hand processes still dominate most major trends.

In any case, we must contemplate the possibility that the pandemic could be the result of a conspiratorial threat — of warfare — so we can steal ourselves against our own destruction. It is easier to unite in the face of a concerted threat than against a mysterious menace; easier to accept losses, easier to become heroes.

“The blood clots are not rare”

It looks like Alex Jones is on to something big: “Deadly Blood Clots Develop In 62% of People Receiving COVID Vaccine” according to preliminary studies.

I of course know nothing.

But from the beginning, the rapid deployment of a very novel vaccine was being pushed through the regulatory system smelled suspicious. The fact that this new technology was rejected for flu vaccination purposes, and that many of the experimenters warned against this tech’s use on humans, suggested that extra caution was in order.

Extra caution against the cure.

Indeed, the novel coronavirus’s novel vaccines were developed too quickly to be believed. That is — if we can believe the official story. Which we cannot. This is old-enough tech, and there is a literature surrounding it. And if the skeptics in this video are to be trusted, the literature goes against the current vaxx-pushing policy. But that seems like common sense to me, it being imprudent to force a novel technology on the world population with so little public review.

And I mean public review, where scientists debate openly in public, without censorship. With censorship? Let others take the risk.

There has got to be a control group. Let the uncontrolled self-enroll. We all take our risks.

Dr. Charles Hoffe

In the video, Dr. Charles Hoffe, explains how the mRNA “vaccine’s” effects include microscopic clotting damage done to the brain, leading to many of the common symptoms, and similar damage to the lungs, inducing permanent “distorted architecture” (“increased reticulation”) that leads to “high blood pressure in their lungs” which, in three years, would likely lead to death by “right-sided heart failure.”

Sixty-two percent?

Talk about bad odds.

Dr. Hoffe has been removed of his ER duties because he has spoken out. That is a key fact, which helps you to know that we are dealing with a very dangerous madness of crowds and a possible manipulation of such madness by managerial elites, who know that their ability to control the masses is key to their own privileged status.

The second half of the video goes deep into conspiracy theory, where the idea is that our elites are engaging in a worldwide “eugenics” campaign to basically push Holodomor 2.0. I know nothing about that. Doesn’t seem impossible. The Depopulation Death Cult has been around for decades. I once sort of bought into it, back when I was an ignorant environmentalist. Viruses of the mind are more catching than actual viruses. Ideas have consequences.

“A worldwide contagion of a neurosis,” says one doctor. Yes. That much is obvious.

The analytic mindset is geared towards monocausal explanations. Duo-causal and multi-causal explanations offend against the rule of thumb known as Occam’s razor. Even theories that technically incorporate many causes are usually framed as mono-causal. Example? The Austrian Theory of the Business Cycle.

And it is fun to watch the schoolmen fight it out, so to speak, to see who can toe their chosen line with the most singular ferocity.

This is a huge problem for the UFO issue. Of the persistently unexplained aerial phenomena, I suspect that Deep State players are trying like heck to keep people thinking of One Explanation, and away from Many.

Some UFOs are no doubt poorly understood plasma phenomena; others are man-made craft of an “experimental” nature; still others are perhaps developed from wrecks from extraterrestrial civilizations’ excursions; others could be incursions from extraterrestrial elsewheres; there could be time-travelers and other interdimensionals (I place my bets heavily on this latter, alas); and crypto-terrestrial breakaway and remnant civilizations are I suppose possible.

The common lurch towards ET hypothesis is interesting. We should wonder to what extent our opinions on such matters have been sculpted not merely by science fiction, but by psy-ops behind sf, especially sf TV and movies.

Meanwhile, the debunkers’ “UFOs Are All Illusions” Theory seems untenable. I wish it were true, though. All of the possible explanations (listed causes), above, are uber-creepy.

As would be the religious folks’ go-to theory: “Angels and Demons.”

The reason the analytic mindset exhibits a prejudice for mono-causal explanations should be obvious, but will nevertheless be explained at greater length in a future entry here, no doubt.

I chatted with Matt Asher a week or so ago. The podcast is up:

And as a video, too:

Matt has figured out the knowledge/trust issues of our time, and explores the problems in an interesting way. I think you may enjoy this one. You may find it even helpful.

Matt Asher’s podcast is The Filter, and his most recent episode, referenced in our chat, is well worth looking up.

People not tempted by a weird belief express their incredulity. They dismiss the belief out of hand, with a kind of contempt that gives them a feeling of being special, set above the other. They think they are superior.

Pride goeth before the abyss.

I have been fascinated by QAnon, as I occasionally mention. Not fascinated enough to research it much. But contact with Q posts online gave me an extra window into a world I know exists, but which I experience chiefly through fiction: the world of myth, legend, mania. . . .

I have oft repeated two judgments about Q:

I have no evidence against much of the lore, and that the final months of Trump’s administration would put the theories to a falsifiability test.

This last idea seemed especially important. And I was as pleased as anyone to witness QAnon lore largely falsified.

You know, because, come what may, Truth is better than lies.

But those who see in QAnon only insanity and partisan madness, and in their rejection of it see evidence mainly of their own high moral standing? Well, they tend to look at the phenomenon with less open-ended interest. For example, this question-and-answer on Quora:

How can I convince Qanon supporters that Q is a hoax?

Let me summarize Qanon for you.

There is a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles who are running a sex-trafficking ring and are working against Donald Trump in order to ruin the world.

Think about that for a moment.

Let it sink in.

Do you really think that there is anything you can say to a person who believes in that which will change their mind? They must have armor built from the thickest, laminated slabs of fabricated lies welded together that is proof against the strongest facts or logic.

As a coworker once told me (and I’m sure it’s not an original from him):

“You cannot reason someone off of a cliff they didn’t reason themselves onto.”

Or, as another coworker put it (and I suspect this is an original):

If you don’t speak crazy, don’t talk to crazy.

In short, there is nothing you can tell them. They will just assume that you are part of the cabal.

This answer seems all very knowing and savvy. I am sure its author felt very satisfied with his answer. But all of his assumed “wisdom”? It is all as fake as QAnon proved to be.

The main assumption is false. And this is important. Yet it is a falsity sanctified by the very best authorities. It was pithily stated by Jonathan Swift long ago:

Reasoning will never make a Man correct an ill Opinion,
which by Reasoning he never acquired

Fisher Ames restated it:

Men are not to be reasoned out of an opinion
that they have not reasoned themselves into.

But this is more obviously untrue than the QAnon conspiracy accounts themselves. I rejected many ideas using “reason” that I had acquired in a much more careless way. In fact, most of my ideas that are of a controversial nature were so acquired. Writing before Swift, Dryden is more nearly right:

A Man is to be cheated into Passion, but to be reason’d into Truth.

Of course, “reasoning” can err; or, more precisely, reasoning man does not always find the truth. Using evidence and logic, one can conjure up a conjecture, knead it into a theory and proclaim it “verified” in proper positivist fashion and remain completely wrong. Indeed, in my experience, people who do this can be as obstinate (or more) than those who haphazardly accumulate convictions.

The Quoran’s answer was mere pride and prejudice. I would trust nothing about about that person’s epistemics. His core beliefs that he thinks define himself as a rational man bear, likely as not, all the weight of gossamer.

After all, we have seen many a QAnonster drop the more fanciful notions. You have probably even read a report or two about such a recantation: the “shaman” of January 6 has so confessed to having been fooled.

Of course many Q enthusiasts only reject select parts of the lore. And perhaps that is what is warranted. Break the Quoran’s litany into separate points:

  1. There is a cabal seeking to run (ruin?) the world.
  2. Its members worship Satan.
  3. They engage in strange anthopophagic rites.
  4. They are pedophiles.
  5. Many political insiders participate in or are blackmailed by sex-trafficking rings.
  6. One or more of these cabals worked mightily against Donald Trump.

With just the above, quite slight restatement, Q lore looks less nutty. Is there a cabal for global governance? Well, yes; more than likely more than one. Do some of these folks worship Satan? Well, have you heard of the Temple of Set and its status within the U.S. Government, courtesy of lobbying by a man who became a top NSA official? Set may or may not equal Satan. Cannibalism? Yes, it is now being openly defended as a sexual fantasy on lefty websites, and I wouldn’t be shocked to hear of worse. Pedophile sex rings among the very powerful have been uncovered in Britain and Europe, and Jeffrey Epstein may not have killed himself. Finally, Donald Trump was indeed opposed by very connected members of the FBI and CIA etc., and this is not at all controversial.

The questions for Q enthusiasts are:

how organized are the groups they oppose?

how knowingly do how many of their enemies share the negative, lurid attributes Q assigned to them?

how explicit and how extreme are their aims, or are some or all driven by a sort of memetic blindness?

how much of Q lore was hope, how much of it was a prank, and how much was disinformation by masters of psychological operations?

I heard quite a few science fictional scenarios from Q folks. You know, about Trump directing the military to engage in secret operations against underground caverns of devilish pedophile cannibals. That kind of thing. It felt like open-source sci-fi. And while it would be easy to dismiss all this out of hand, I had no trouble just setting it onto my Epoché shelf, carefully filed.

Why not just dismiss it?

Well, were the government not officially disclosing UFO information in dribs and drabs, while ignoring eight decades’ worth of leaked memos about UFOs, I probably would. But we have a huge mystery here, the government has been all over the map concealing, denying, acknowledging and ignoring the UFO lore, making it a huge matzo ball looming over our culture and over our conception of the world. I know that most intellectuals prefer to ignore this. I cannot. In my philosophy, inconvenient evidence requires explanation, not damning. (I relish every Charles Fort reference.) And I recognize what C.G. Jung recognized, that government handling of the UFO issue is driving people nuts.

Nuts enough to believe Q? Yes. But also nuts to disbelieve everything even slightly Q-adjacent.

Oh, and the nuttiest thing in Q? That Donald Trump was going to save us from the bad guys. Turns out: nope. The globalists have taken control, shamelessly engage in a concerted suppression of dissent, and have used the excuse of a contagion to marshal unconstitutional powers to rob millions of the freedoms. And they insist on doing more.

Oh, and not only was Trump unable to stop them, in the key area of COVID insanity, Trump fed the beast.

Q was obviously way off. And I do hope Q enthusiasts can reason their way out of placing inordinate hope in mythic champions who — it just so happens — deliver them to their enemies. For sacrifice.

Factitious disorder imposed on another (FDIA), also known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSbP), is a condition in which a caregiver creates the appearance of health problems in another person, typically their child, sometimes going so far as to wound, poison, or kill the victim/patient.

Why would anyone behave like this? Hard to figure. 

But maybe it is easier to understand now that politicians & bureaucrats lie to us about a contagion, abuse the legal powers of the quarantine, & insist that we all take experimental genetic therapy and call it what it isn’t: a “vaccine.”

Now, I have been using terms like “psy-op” to define the mass manipulation of the population in regards to the pandemic, but perhaps “Mass MSbP” brings the idea home better:

Munchausen by Proxy is an official mental health diagnosis given to someone who, as a caregiver, convinces the person in his care that he is ill when he really isn’t. The net result is the caregiver has total control over his charge and can even go so far as to cause his charge to be ill to fit the narrative. 

We who live in blue and, to some extent, purple states are victims of this syndrome, with state governments acting as the (mentally disturbed) caregivers, and the citizens, collectively, as patients. Many of the patients have been convinced that they are, in fact, being protected by their persecutors.

Liberal media (and, at this point, that means virtually all uncensored media) shuts down any factual discussion of what works and what doesn’t to stem the Wu Flu. If you examine the actual statistics, lockdowns a la California and New York have yielded no better results and it could be argued, much worse in terms of cases and hospitalizations, than more open states such as Florida and Texas.

Where schools are allowed to function normally, there have been no more reported cases than in those where children languish at home, preventing parents from earning a living and learning their lessons haphazardly by remote Zoom “class”. What is most striking about the difference between these states, is that the closed ones have a far higher incidence of drug abuse and overdoses, child abuse, poverty, and suicide from despair.

Many of us know someone who died from (or with) COVID, or has had severe COVID and recovered, or has lingering problems from long term COVID. We’ve been fed this as an excuse, along with claims about ICU bed shortages. It’s fear, fear, and more fear!

Personally, I don’t know a soul who’s died from COVID, although I hear about friends of friends who have. But if you think about it, you also know someone, or many someones, who have died from other things. Take cancer, for instance. I know many people who have died of cancer. My mother, my grandmother, my friends Marion and Jeff, my old dental hygienist, my mother-in-law, my childhood best friend, the guy two houses from me, the guy two houses in the other direction, a friend’s husband, and the list goes on.

People get sick, people die. It happens. People get in accidents and die too. Have we stopped living our lives to keep from having that happen? Have we ever even considered doing so? Never!

Only for COVID. So, think about it. Ask yourself, why is there so little real information to make one’s own decision, and why are we denied opportunities to make our own decisions? Why have we gone from 14 days to “flatten the curve” so we can ramp up hospital capacity to cope with the expected influx, to a year of living by not living at all, with no end in sight?

Even before having a vaccine we’ve known that those who are going to get this thing are, yes, going to get it sooner or later. The vaccine may change the equation, but only for the better. That’s the way pandemics work. Either you get it over with, and reach herd immunity, or you live your life scared to allow anyone to look at your face, get within breathing distance, or educate your children in person.

Early treatment would make the effects of the virus much less, but as discussed here, that is not the model our health bureaucracy espouses. An elegant and sensible solution would be to allowing those who have serious co-morbidities to get vaccinated or stay cloistered from society and supported financially as needed, while the rest of us get on with life. But that’s not what’s happening in the Munchausen by Proxy states.

There is, quite simply, a vested interest in keeping us afraid and at home, masked and silenced. This must be ended, and those of us who disagree with the locked-down version of half-life in these United States must speak our minds while we still have the freedom to do so. The more people do, the better.

Terry Paulding, “Munchausen by (government) Proxy,” January 10, 2021.

In a later piece, the same author argues that the “vaccine is experimental, and we, the people, are being herded into a mass drug trial such as the FDA has never before attempted.” Now, I do not see how we gain anything by referring to the American treatments as “vaccines.” They seem something much newer and far more “experimental” than taking broken viruses and using them to cue our immune systems. The Pfizer drug is much more radical and cutting edge. I have not yet found any response to Dr. Joseph Mercola’s charge that the “COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines.” But the experimental nature of the shots is more than acknowledged by official sources. Indeed, President Trump was a key player to push them around regulatory hurdles.

That is the unembellished truth. Nobody in authority wants to mention this truth. Instead, there’s a long trail of rah-rah news propaganda, about fabulous new stadium-parking-lot vaccine sites (because, what else would a parking lot at a stadium be used for these days?), numbers of doses available, and reports about the elderly in nursing homes doing a dance of joy at getting their jabs and maybe being let out of jail to see family and people other than one another. These generally come with an interview of somebody in a nursing facility who calls the rest of us, those who don’t want to be guinea pigs, “fools” and tells us to just “get on with it” so we can finally hug mom.

I want to reïterate: Trump was necessary in unleashing this drug onto the market.

But note: “market” itself is something of a misnomer. We are being coerced to take this drug. Our governments withhold the freedom to move about, peaceably assemble, contract, and be a part of normal society from millions of Americans until they are “vaccinated.” That is, infected with an under-studied, poorly-described soup of nanotech agents.

And Americans sure seem awfully bamboozled. Compliant. Servile. They yammer on, dutifully, as if their “caregivers” would never lie to them!

But they are lying, and we are being tricked and corralled into some new order:

If the vaccine is an experiment, if the cases are plummeting, and if the state is still stepping on our necks both to keep us from noticing the devastation and to make us desire the vaccine, then what is the logical conclusion? My guess is it’s all about making some people some money and, in the process, changing the country for the worse. That’s a harsh conclusion and, perhaps, another explanation is that we have a case of Munchausen by (government) proxy, whereby the State wants us ill so it can be seen as our savior. But that only takes us so far.

The further reach? As Terry Paulding, the above-quoted author, puts it, the much-worked-for next step is . . . well, I prefer Michael Rectenwald’s favored term: corporate socialism. Not the old-fashioned money-less/market-suppressed, centrally-planned fiasco, no, but a system “to limit the possibilities for individual activity — by dint of squeezing out industries and producers within industries from the economy.”

Call it totalitarian oligopoly. Like China pushes.

As has been quite successful with the lockdowns.

While timorous Americans quivered in fear of COVID, their leaders prepared the next step of totalitarian control with the help of their Orange Man Evil, Donald Trump.
