Have you entered a store without the mandated mask affixed to your face?

Visited a friend in violation of a lockdown order?

Frequented a New York bar that didn’t offer “substantive” food to go with your beer?

Congratulations! You’re a thought criminal!

And here’s the best part: There are more thought criminals being born every day!

What am I talking about? The counter-economy, that’s what!

As you’ll no doubt remember from my previous writing on the subject, counter-economics is not what the Pentagon does to cook its books each year. No, it’s both an idea and a practice that was pioneered by Samuel Edward Konkin III, everyone’s second favourite Canadian emigre anarchist.

In An Agorist Primer, Konkin explains that “All (non-coercive) human action committed in defiance of the State constitutes the Counter-Economy.” That’s a deceptively simple definition, so let’s tease out some of the nuance here:

  • “Non-coercive” is important because murder, theft, assault, fraud, extortion and other forms of coercion are not part of the counter-economy, but, as Konkin notes, are simply “other forms of statism.”
  • “Human action” is important because, as Konkin was at pains to stress, counter-economics is not a dry, dusty theory to be discussed in a philosophy classroom, but an idea that can only be realized in practice.
  • And “in defiance of the State” is important because the purpose of counter-economics is to undermine, and, eventually, shrink the state out of existence.

So, you walk into a store without a mask in defiance of your city’s ordinances? Congratulations! You’re a practicing counter-economist.

You pay a barber under the table to cut your hair despite lockdown orders to the contrary? Congratulations! You’re a practicing counter-economist.

You’re a business owner who fails to implement the government-mandated physical distancing and disinfection standards in your workplace? Congratulations! You’re a practicing counter-economist.

Now, this idea could be extended to the point of inanity. Yes, you could technically be a counter-economist if you drive 51 km/h in a 50 km/h zone,

Shape Yourself Into The Perfect Weapon Against The Empire

shape-yourself-into-the-perfect-weapon-against-the-empire

04-08-20 08:06:00,

Do you want to win this thing? Actually win it?

By that I mean, do you actually want to create a healthy world instead of a world where we are ruled by lying, murderous, warmongering, oppressive, ecocidal, omnicidal sociopaths? Is that something you truly, deeply want?

It’s okay if you don’t, but be real with yourself about it.

A large percentage of the people who get involved in revolutionary political movements and criticism of establishment power structures, if they were honest with themselves, would admit that they do so not out of a sincere desire to replace the sociopathic ruling empire with something that benefits all life on this earth, but out of a desire to feel good about themselves. It’s not a real battle for them, it’s just a titillating ego game. A hobby, no different from any other.

Dissident Circles Too Often Become Another Nerdy Hobby Group

“Politics should change you. Revolutionary thought should transform you. Dismantling establishment narratives about the world should dismantle your own narratives about yourself.”https://t.co/Yu7Ll5Svuu

— Caitlin Johnstone ⏳ (@caitoz) May 19, 2020

If this is you, that’s fine. Humanity is asleep in a whole host of ways, and it wouldn’t be fair to single you out as uniquely awful when you’re not any different from the vast majority of people. But at the very least please do try and be real with yourself about it.

If this is not you, and you really are in this fight to win it, then you should be spending every day doing everything you can to hone yourself into the perfect weapon in that fight.

If this were a revolution that is fought with physical weaponry, then you should be training every day to use those weapons effectively in that revolution. But this is not a revolution that is being fought with physical weaponry. The frontline of this revolution is propaganda, and the guerrilla psywar that we are fighting against it.

As I never tire of saying, the only thing keeping the imperial status quo in place is propaganda. People would never consent to the exploitation, inequality and murderousness that is intrinsic to the US-centralized empire if they were not propagandized into consenting to it;

Europeans Are Waking Up to Government Covid Tyranny. Why Are We Still Asleep?

Europeans Are Waking Up to Government Covid Tyranny. Why Are We Still Asleep?

    Tens of thousands of Germans marched through Berlin on Saturday, proclaiming a “Day of Freedom” and demanding an end to government-mandated face masks and “social distancing.” The UK and Netherlands also saw large protests against their governments’ tyrannical actions in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

    According to media accounts, the Berlin protesters held signs reading “We are being forced to wear a muzzle,” “Natural defense instead of vaccination,” and “We are making noise because you are stealing our freedom!”

    Good for them!

    The New York Times Tweeted that the masses of Berlin demonstrators were all “Nazis” and “conspiracy theorists.” Does the “paper of record” really want us to believe there were perhaps a million Nazis active in the streets of Berlin? Wouldn’t that be alarming?

    The fact is, Europeans are realizing that their government-mandated lockdowns did little or nothing to protect them from the virus, while causing economic catastrophe and untold human suffering.

    They likely looked around and noticed that Sweden, which never locked down its economy, rejected face masks, and kept its restaurants and other places of business open, did not fare any worse than the countries that have been turned into open air prisons for much of the year. In fact, Sweden had a lower death rate from the virus than strict lockdown states like the UK and France. No wonder people are starting to get angry.

    Unfortunately, while the Europeans are waking up, Americans are still asleep as our freedoms continue to be trampled. While Europeans demand an end to government tyranny, here we see states with minuscule new deaths returning to lockdown. It is as if all the wannabe tyrants from mayors to governors are finally realizing their secret dreams of ruling by decree. Their dreams are our nightmares!

    Secret Meeting on the Privatization of Nuclear War Held on Hiroshima Day 2003 – Global Research

    secret-meeting-on-the-privatization-of-nuclear-war-held-on-hiroshima-day-2003-–-global-research

    03-08-20 08:21:00,

    The Trump Administration’s Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) 2018 has called for “the development of new, more usable nuclear weapons”.

    The 2018 NPR is in many regards Déjà Vu.

    What seems to have escaped the numerous media reports on Trump’s 2018 NPR is that the development of “more usable nuclear weapons” had already been put forth in George W. Bush’s 2001 Nuclear Posture Review, which was adopted by the US Senate in late 2002. In this regard, Senator Edward Kennedy had accused the Bush Administration for having developed “a generation of more useable nuclear weapons.” namely tactical nuclear weapons (B61-11 mini-nukes) with an explosive capacity between one third and 6 times times a Hiroshima bomb.

    The term “more usable” emanates from the debate surrounding the 2001 NPR, which justified the use of tactical nuclear weapons in the conventional war theater on the grounds that tactical nuclear weapons, namely bunker buster bombs with a nuclear warhead are, according to scientific opinion on contract to the Pentagon “harmless to the surrounding population because the explosion is underground.”

    Michel Chossudovsky,  August 6, 2019, August 3, 2020

    ***

    The text below is an excerpt from Michel Chossudovsky’s Towards a World War Three Scenario, The Dangers of Nuclear War. first published in 2011. 

    ***

    At no point since the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945, has humanity been closer to the unthinkable – a nuclear holocaust which could potentially spread in terms of radioactive fallout over a large part of the Middle East.

    All the safeguards of the Cold War era, which categorized the nuclear bomb as “a weapon of last resort”, have been scrapped. “Offensive” military actions using nuclear warheads are now described as acts of “self-defense”.

    The casualties from the direct effects of blast, radioactivity, and fires resulting from the massive use of nuclear weapons by the superpowers [of the Cold War era] would be so catastrophic that we avoided such a tragedy for the first four decades after the invention of nuclear weapons.1

    During the Cold War, the doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) prevailed,

    Another Hiroshima Is Coming — Unless We Stop It Now – Global Research

    another-hiroshima-is-coming-—-unless-we-stop-it-now-–-global-research

    03-08-20 07:46:00,

    When I first went to Hiroshima in 1967, the shadow on the steps was still there. It was an almost perfect impression of a human being at ease: legs splayed, back bent, one hand by her side as she sat waiting for a bank to open.

    At a quarter past eight on the morning of August 6, 1945, she and her silhouette were burned into the granite.

    I stared at the shadow for an hour or more, then I walked down to the river where the survivors still lived in shanties.

    I met a man called Yukio, whose chest was etched with the pattern of the shirt he was wearing when the atomic bomb was dropped.

    He described a huge flash over the city, “a bluish light, something like an electrical short”, after which wind blew like a tornado and black rain fell.

    “I was thrown on the ground and noticed only the stalks of my flowers were left. Everything was still and quiet, and when I got up, there were people naked, not saying anything. Some of them had no skin or hair. I was certain I was dead.”

    Nine years later, I returned to look for him and he was dead from leukaemia.

    “No radioactivity in Hiroshima ruin” said The New York Times front page on 13 September, 1945, a classic of planted disinformation. “General Farrell,” reported William L. Lawrence, “denied categorically that [the atomic bomb] produced a dangerous, lingering radioactivity.” Lawrence  received the Pulitzer Prize.

    Only one reporter, Wilfred Burchett, an Australian, had braved the perilous journey to Hiroshima in the immediate aftermath of the atomic bombing, in defiance of the Allied occupation authorities, which controlled the “press pack”.

    “I write this as a warning to the world,” reported Burchett in the London Daily Express  of September 5,1945. Sitting in the rubble with his Baby Hermes typewriter, he described hospital wards filled with people with no visible injuries who were dying from what he called “an atomic plague”.

    For this, his press accreditation was withdrawn, he was pilloried and smeared. His witness to the truth was never forgiven.

    The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was an act of premeditated mass murder that unleashed a weapon of intrinsic criminality.

    Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, others, profiteering from world-scale respiratory illness racketeering scheme | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

    Topdown firesale approach to globalist master plan reveals impending “natural disaster” or biological release may be on the way

    (INTELLIHUB) — New and shocking information obtained by Intellihub reveals that Dr. Anthony Fauci is listed on the Board of Directors of the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB) and appears to be involved in a mammoth worldwide racketeering network scheme in which a prefabricated and deliberately contrived ‘health crisis’ has been used as a means to lockdown and suppress human activity worldwide while allowing the perpetrators of the dastardly multi-faceted and multi-pronged agenda to loot the proverbial coffers of the people and government simultaneously paving the way for a New World Order-style dystopian police state.

    The GPMB is comprised of experts from non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, national governments, and multilateral agencies including the World Health Organization and World Bank Group respectively.

    The Board’s main purpose within itself is to urge political action “multilateral agencies.”

    To no surprise, the Board has ties to just about anything and everything that is COVID-19 related including the purported “pandemic” itself which seems to be nothing more than a tool that is being used to further control the populace.

    In a nutshell, “the Board works independently of all parties, including its co-conveners, to provide the most frank assessments and recommendations possible,” as the agency’s annual report states. This separation acts as a buffer and provides a degree of legal protection to all those involved.

    Clever verbiage within the Board’s latest annual report titled A World at Risk” Annual Report on Global Health Preparedness Emergencies separates the members of the Board from their organizations and even separates them from the Board itself. This is done by design.

    “The findings, interpretations, conclusions, and opinions expressed in this report and by Board members represent their views only and not those of their organizations or of the co-conveners.”

    — A World at Risk/Global Preparedness Monitoring Board

    GPMB

    The goals of the Board are to:

    • assess the world’s ability to protect itself from health emergencies
    • identify critical gaps to preparedness across multiple perspectives;
    • advocate for preparedness activities with national and international leaders and decision-makers.

    Twitter, Facebook und Youtube zensurieren Corona-Video

    twitter,-facebook-und-youtube-zensurieren-corona-video

    03-08-20 10:08:00,

    Urs P. Gasche / 03. Aug 2020 –

    «Social Media» verbieten die Behauptungen, das Malaria-Medikament HCQ nütze gegen Covid-19, Masken aber kaum. Protest bleibt aus.

    Auch wer HCQ zum Behandeln von Covid-19 für unzweckmässig hält, oder wer es als sicher annimmt, dass Gesichtsmasken – wie gerade jetzt erneut nachgewiesen – einen bestimmten Schutz vor Ansteckung bieten, sollte sich gegenteiligen Äusserungen stellen und keine Zensur akzeptieren.

    Das zensurierte Video war die Aufzeichnung einer inszenierten Pressekonferenz einiger Aussenseiter-Ärztinnen und -Ärzte. Diese empfahlen das Malariamedikament Hydroxychloroquin (HCQ) als Therapie und Prophylaxe gegen Covid-19 und stellten nebenbei den Nutzen des allgemeinen Maskentragens in Frage. Das Video enthielt weder Gewaltdarstellungen noch Beschimpfungen noch sonst etwas Rechtswidriges, sondern höchstens eine falsche Darstellung eines Sachverhalts.

    Initiantin des Videos vom 27. Juli war eine Gruppe von Hausärztinnen und Hausärzten mit dem Namen «America’s Frontline Doctors». Präsident Donald Trump, der HCQ schon lange empfiehlt und es eine Zeitlang selber eingenommen haben soll, teilte das Video sogleich mit seinen 84 Millionen Followern auf Twitter. Auf Facebook und Youtube wurde es ebenfalls millionenfach verbreitet. Zwei Tage später war das Video unauffindbar – sogar die Webseite der Ärztegruppe ist nicht mehr zugänglich. Der Hoster Squarespace sperrte die Seite mit der Begründung, deren Inhalte seien «false, fraudulent, inaccurate or deceiving».

    • Es ist beispiellos, dass die Besitzer von Twitter, Facebook und Google/Youtube ein solches Video, das sich rasch millionenfach verbreitete, gemeinsam aus der Welt des Internets zum Verschwinden bringen. Millionen anderer Videos, welche Sachverhalte tatsächlich oder möglicherweise falsch darstellen, müssten der Zensur ebenfalls zum Opfer fallen.
    • Unabhängig vom Wahrheitsgehalt ist es blamabel, dass grosse Medien diese Zensur nicht anprangern. Sie ist ein gefährlicher Präzedenzfall. Doch statt zu protestieren, ziehen Journalisten über die Ärztegruppe her, ohne über den Inhalt des Videos zu informieren, so dass sich die Leserschaft kein Urteil bilden kann. Oder sie informieren ihre Leserschaft überhaupt nicht über diese beunruhigende Zensur der Online-Giganten Twitter, Facebook und Google/Youtube.

    Wer seither bei Google oder Youtube nach «America’s Frontline Doctors» sucht, kommt statt auf das Video und dessen Quelle seitenweise auf andere Videos und Textquellen, welche über das nicht mehr sichtbare Video herziehen. Auf der Seite von CNN begründet ein Facebook-Sprecher die Zensur mit «falschen Informationen über Behandlungen von Covid-19».

    From Lockdowns To “The Great Reset”

    from-lockdowns-to-“the-great-reset”

    03-08-20 09:46:00,

    Authored by Anthony Mueller via The Mises Institute,

    The lockdown in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the implementation of long-held plans to establish a so-called new world order. Under the auspices of the World Economic Forum (WEF), global policymakers are advocating for a “Great Reset” with the intent of creating a global technocracy. It is not by coincidence that on October 18, 2019, in New York City the WEF participated in “Event 201” at the “high-level” pandemic exercise organized by the John Hopkins Center for Health Security.

    This coming technocracy involves close cooperation between the heads of the digital industry and of governments. With programs such as guaranteed minimum income and healthcare for all, the new kind of governance combines strict societal control with the promise of comprehensive social justice.

    The truth, however, is that this new world order of digital tyranny comes with a comprehensive social credit system. The People’s Republic of China is the pioneer of this method of surveillance and control of individuals, corporations, and sociopolitical entities.

    For the individual, one’s identity is reduced to an app or chip that registers almost any personal activity. In order to gain a few individual rights, and be it only to travel to a certain place, a person must balance such apparent privileges with his submission to a web of regulations that define in detail what is “good behavior” and deemed as beneficial to humankind and the environment. For example, during a pandemic, this sort of control would extend from the obligation of wearing a mask and practicing social distancing to having specific vaccinations in order to apply for a job or to travel.

    It is, in short, a type of social engineering which is the opposite of a spontaneous order or of development. Like the mechanical engineer with a machine, the social engineer—or technocrat—treats society as an object. Different from the brutal suppressions by the totalitarianism of earlier times, the modern social engineer will try to make the social machine work on its own according to the design.

    Video: Covid-19 Lies and Fraud: How the Fear Campaign is Affecting US Hospitals and Clinics – Global Research

    video:-covid-19-lies-and-fraud:-how-the-fear-campaign-is-affecting-us-hospitals-and-clinics-–-global-research

    02-08-20 03:40:00,

    In the following interview, Dr. Morris, a practicing physician in Florida, USA, explains how politics and fraud are root causes of the Fear campaign that is plaguing his state, and the country.

    First, labs are faking COVID results. Some labs are reporting 100% positive tests, and this, he says, is statistically impossible. Two labs that were audited reported less than 10% positive COVID results. Morris attributes the fake reporting to politics and insurance fraud.

    Second, media are reporting that there are not enough hospital beds. This too, he says, is false. A few months back, he explains, there were massive staff layoffs because scheduled hospital procedures were cancelled. Currently, hospitals are running at 50-60% staffing capacity, so there are plenty of beds, but not enough staff.

    Finally, he explains that pharmacies and governing agencies are interfering with successful treatment protocols, namely Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Zithromax. Local pharmacies, he explains, refuse to fill his prescriptions. Such interference, he says, is criminal.

    Governing agencies and establishment media, including Youtube and Facebook, are censoring reports such as this. The costs of such censorship are high in terms of increased excess deaths globally, but also in terms of lost freedoms.

    Bank Of Ireland Is Now Imposing Negative Rates On Cash Held In Pensions

    bank-of-ireland-is-now-imposing-negative-rates-on-cash-held-in-pensions

    02-08-20 03:08:00,

    If you’re holding your pension with the Bank of Ireland, you are now officially being charged to do so. 

    In a move that we’re sure is going to have absolutely no consequences, the bank is starting to impose negative interest rates on cash held in pensions, according to The Irish Examiner. The bank is applying a rate of 0.65% on pension pots, which means customers will now pay the bank $65 on every $10,000 held. 

    The bank commented: “European Central Bank interest rates have been negative since 2014. Since then banks have been subject to negative interest rates for holding funds overnight and market indications are that rates will remain low for some time.”

    It continued: “As a result, we have applied negative rates on deposits for large institutional and corporate customers since 2016. We recently wrote to 14 investment and pension trustee firms to inform them about a rate change to their accounts, which is reflective of the negative interest rate environment.”

    “The average amount held on deposit by investment and pension trustee firms is in excess of around €100m, therefore it is no longer sustainable for the Bank to continue with the current rate of interest. We provided 3 months’ advance notification of this rate change to our investment and pension trustee firm customers,” the bank concluded.

    Ulster Bank is also considering similar rates in the future. The bank’s CEO, Jane Howard, said: “In terms of Ulster Bank, we did introduce negative rates earlier this year and we’ve introduced it for larger businesses with balances of over €1m.”

    She continued: “As I sit here today we have no plans to charge negative interest rates for our personal customers but given the way everything happens, like Covid, so unexpectedly, it is not something I can rule out forever.”

    By now, it feels like it is only a matter of time before the U.S. follows suit. And to think, none of this “prosperity” would be possible without the miracle of modern central banking.

    Thanks, Christine.

    The Plan To Silence Doctors Once And For All – Activist Post

    the-plan-to-silence-doctors-once-and-for-all-–-activist-post

    02-08-20 08:59:00,

    By Spiro Skouras

    Last week an organization of doctors called America’s Frontline Doctors went to Washington DC and gave a press release in front of the Supreme Court.

    What this group of doctors said directly contradicted official positions of the World Health Organization and the Centers For Disease Control regarding the coronavirus and treatment of the infection as the new experimental vaccine could arrive before the end of the year.

    Members of the doctors’ organization have been fired from their jobs, they have had their website removed and the viral video has been almost scrubbed from the internet.

    Become an Activist Post Patron for $1 per month at Patreon.

    It appears that censoring doctors who speak out against the medical establishment may only be a temporary solution. Just today, right on time, the World Economic Forum released a video called ‘When Your Doctor Is A Robot.’

    Will doctors and nurses one day be replaced by artificial intelligence and robots? After all, robots don’t ask questions… They follow orders.

    The Great COVID-Con: Exposing Journalistic Malpractice

    the-great-covid-con:-exposing-journalistic-malpractice

    02-08-20 08:33:00,

    Authored by Vasko Kohlmayer via LewRockwell.com,

    On July 5th of this year – following weeks of steady decline – the United States recorded 263 deaths from COVID-19. This was the lowest daily toll in nearly three and half months. The July 5th figure represented a 90 percent drop from the peak which occurred April 21st. On that day there were 2748 deaths from COVID-19 (see worldometers.info for data).

    The sharp decrease in COVID deaths was obviously a most welcome development. One would expect it would have quickly generated a spate of celebratory headlines.

    However, this is not what happened that day.

    Below is a collection of links to some of the news items put forward by US media on July 5:

    It is quite astonishing that among these headlines there is no mention of the 90 percent drop in the daily death toll. Reading through them, one would have no idea that there has been such a dramatic improvement. Quite on the contrary, the impression is that things are as dire as ever.

    Neither are these items an inaccurate sampling of the kind of material put out by mainstream media outlets that day.

    TikTok, Epstein, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

    tiktok,-epstein,-and-other-notes-from-the-edge-of-the-narrative-matrix

    01-08-20 09:22:00,

    I’m just going to keep saying this: the fact that powerful intelligence agencies have been using minors as sex slaves to manipulate our society via blackmail is vastly more significant than the details of who they blackmailed and who facilitated that blackmailing.

    I will say it again, in caps: POWERFUL INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES HAVE BEEN USING KIDS AS SEX SLAVES TO MANIPULATE OUR SOCIETY VIA BLACKMAIL. How is this not the main story? How are people more interested in Epstein, Maxwell, Clinton, Dershowitz, Prince Andrew etc than in this earth-shattering revelation?

    ~

    Never use the word “whore” to refer to a sex worker; they earn an honest and respectable living and they shouldn’t be demeaned for it. That word should only ever be used for members of the mainstream news media.

    ~

    Again, they’re not talking about banning TikTok because of data mining, they are talking about banning TikTok because of data mining that isn’t run by western oligarchs and intelligence agencies.

    Democrats are pretending the Trump administration wants to ban TikTok because TikTok kids hurt Trump’s feelings. No they don’t, they want to ban it because they can’t abide a popular social media app that western spooks and narrative managers aren’t balls-deep involved in.

    ~

    The economic rise of China will end US unipolar hegemony if something isn’t done to stop it. One way to stop it would be to narative manage the world into collaborating with hard economic sanctions. The neocons, war pigs and American supremacists are already pushing for this.

    ~

    Once you realize that corporate power is America’s real government, it becomes clear that corporate media is state media. It’s just a tyrannical regime brainwashing its populace with propaganda, brutalizing protesters, and attacking anyone in the world who disobeys its dictates.

    You Can Now Be Fined, Jailed, & Assaulted For Not Wearing A Mask In America

    Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

    Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

    Governors proclaim chicken wings are not a meal

    The pandemic has made Governors so power hungry that they are now telling restaurants what counts as a meal.

    States like California and New York are forcing restaurants and bars to only serve alcohol with meals.

    That prompted some establishments to add special menu items so that patrons who just wanted a drink didn’t have to order an entire meal.

    But now that tactic has caught the eye of Comrade-Governors Newsom and Cuomo.

    They have decided that not only is it within their power to tell restaurants if they are allowed to serve drinks and food, but these Governors also claim the power to dictate what counts as a meal.

    The dictator of California officially decreed that buffalo chicken wings are not a meal.

    Nor are reheated frozen entrees, “pizza bites (as opposed to a pizza)”, or “any small portion of a dish that may constitute a main course when it is not served in a full portion or when it is intended for sharing in small portions.”

    And the dictator of New York said the food available has to be “More than just hors d’oeuvres, chicken wings, you had to have some substantive food. The lowest level of substantive food were sandwiches.”

    There you have it, sandwiches are a meal, chicken wings are not. So says the politburo.

    A&E loses half its viewers after canceling “Live PD”

    Amid calls for police accountability, A&E canceled its reality TV show “Live PD” to try to appease the Twitter mob.

    Does this seem counterintuitive to you? It does to me. Following cops around with a camera seems like it would INCREASE police accountability.

    But A&E seems to think that if they stop filming the police, then transparency and accountability will improve. In other news, 2+2 = 5.

    Bubble indemnity: Big Pharma firms will NOT be held accountable for side effects of Covid vaccine

    bubble-indemnity:-big-pharma-firms-will-not-be-held-accountable-for-side-effects-of-covid-vaccine

    01-08-20 08:24:00,

    By Peter Andrews, Irish science journalist and writer based in London. He has a background in the life sciences, and graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in genetics.

    A senior executive for pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca has confirmed that his company cannot face legal action for any potential side effects caused by its Covid vaccine. Those affected will have no legal recourse.

    AstraZeneca is one of 25 pharmaceutical companies worldwide already testing their Covid vaccines on humans, in preparation for injecting hundreds of millions of people. These are flush times for Britain’s largest pharmaceutical company, worth something in the order of £70 million. They have just reported bumper profits of $12.6 billion in the last six months alone.

    But despite its healthy balance sheet, AstraZeneca is unwilling to be held responsible for any potential side effects of its ‘hopeful’ vaccine candidate. In other words, the company is completely protected, or indemnified, against lawsuits from people who are injected with their vaccine and experience negative effects, regardless of how severe or long-lasting they are.

    The firm’s lawyers have demanded that clauses to that effect be put in their contracts with the countries AstraZeneca has agreed to supply with its Covid vaccine. The company says that, without such guarantees of indemnity, they would not be incentivised to produce the drug. And it seems most of the countries have ceded to this demand.

    Done in the national interest?

    Ruud Dobber, a senior AstraZeneca executive, told Reuters “In the contracts we have in place, we are asking for indemnification. For most countries it is acceptable to take that risk on their shoulders because it is in their national interest’’. For “national interest,” read “government interest.” Whether what is happening is good for the actual people of vaccinated countries is, to put it very mildly, an open question.

    Vaccine nationalism: Rich nations spend BILLIONS to grab first anti-coronavirus doses while poor countries are left behind (again)

    Dobber refused to name the countries which have placed orders for the firm’s vaccine, although many major western democracies are likely to be on the list.

    Jim Jordan Presses Dr. Fauci On COVID-19 Protest Hypocrisy

    jim-jordan-presses-dr.-fauci-on-covid-19-protest-hypocrisy

    31-07-20 03:53:00,

    Friday’s testimony before the House coronavirus subcommittee on Friday was supposed to be just another snoozefest with Dr. Fauci fielding the same questions from obsequious Democrats and hostile Republicans.

    But viewers perked up roughly 2 hours into the hearing on Friday when Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan, one of the good doctor’s most vocal critics, was called on to ask a question.

    His initial question was simple enough: “Dr. Fauci,” Jordan asked. “Can protests spread the virus?”

    Considering the straightforwardness of the question, Dr. Fauci seemed surprisingly startled. He took a few moments to gather his thoughts, then responded that all large gatherings where people aren’t complying with all social distancing recommendations are ill-advised – though, the good doctor insisted, he didn’t want to make a specific judgment about what types of activities are permissible, and which aren’t.

    But Jordan soon pointed out that the good doctor has made a lot of “judgment calls” – including opposing in-person worship and other practices seemingly protected by the first amendment.

    Aside from the high probability that speaking out against the protests would instantly transform him into a target of deranged leftists, why does the good doctor feel justified to couch all criticisms of the protests in such mealymouthed language, while treating work, worship and other “rights” with much less respect?

    He couldn’t answer. Instead, he reiterated that it wasn’t for him to say.

    As far as Friday entertainment goes, Jordan’s grilling is one to remember.

    Psychological Warfare: The CIA Then and Now: Old Wine in New Bottles – Global Research

    “And as the flames climbed high into the night
    To light the sacrificial rite
    I saw Satan laughing with delight
    The day the music died”

    – Don McLean, “American Pie”

    Important article written in January 2019 focussing on psychological warfare. Of relevance to the Covid-19 crisis and fear campaign.

    The Nazis had a name for their propaganda and mind-control operations: Weltanschauungskrieg– “world view warfare.”  As good students, they had learned many tricks of the trade from their American teachers, including Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays, who had honed his propagandistic skills for the United States during World War I and had subsequently started the public relations industry in New York City, an industry whose raison d’ȇtre from the start was to serve the interests of the elites in manipulating the public mind. 

    In 1941, U.S. Intelligence translated Weltanschauungskrieg as “psychological warfare,” a phrase that fails to grasp the full dimensions of the growing power and penetration of U.S. propaganda, then and now.  Of course, the American propaganda apparatus was just then getting started on an enterprise that has become the epitome of successful world view warfare programs, a colossal beast whose tentacles have spread to every corner of the globe and whose fabrications have nestled deep within the psyches of many hundreds of millions of Americans and people around the world.  And true to form in this circle game of friends helping friends, this propaganda program was ably assisted after WW II by all the Nazis secreted into the U.S. (“Operation Paperclip”) by Allen Dulles and his henchmen in the OSS and then the CIA to make sure the U.S. had operatives to carry on the Nazi legacy (see David Talbot’s The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, The CIA, and The Rise of America’s Secret Government, an extraordinary book that will make your skin crawl with disgust).

    This went along quite smoothly until some people started to question the Warren Commission’s JFK assassination story.  The CIA then went on the offensive in 1967 and put out the word to all its people in the agency and throughout the media and academia to use the phrase “conspiracy theory” to ridicule these skeptics,

    When Corporate Power Is Your Real Government, Corporate Media Is State Media

    when-corporate-power-is-your-real-government,-corporate-media-is-state-media

    31-07-20 02:55:00,

    The New York Times published an astonishingly horrible article the other day titled “Latin America Is Facing a ‘Decline of Democracy’ Under the Pandemic” accusing governments like Venezuela and Nicaragua of exploiting Covid-19 to quash opposition and oppress democracy.

    The article sources its jarringly propagandistic claims in multiple US government-funded narrative management operations like the Wilson Center and the National Endowment for Democracy-sponsored Freedom House, the extensively plutocrat-funded Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and the United States Naval Academy.

    The crown jewel of this piece of State Department stenography reads as follows:

    “Adding to these challenges, democracy in Latin America has also lost a champion in the United States, which had played an important role in promoting democracy after the end of the Cold War by financing good governance programs and calling out authoritarian abuses.”

    Whoa, nelly.

    I wanted to laugh but it isn’t funny that the New York Times thinks it’s okay to publish such a blatantly false statement. pic.twitter.com/cBlcf4aq1l

    — Esha (@eshaLegal) July 30, 2020

    The fact that America’s most widely regarded newspaper feels perfectly comfortable making such a spectacularly in-your-face lie on behalf of the US government tells you everything you need to know about what the mass media in America really are and what they do.

    The United States has never at any time been a champion of democracy in Latin America, before or since the Cold War. It has intervened hundreds of times in the continent’s affairs throughout history with everything from murderous corporate colonialism to deadly CIA regime change operations to overt military invasions. It is currently trying to orchestrate a coup in Venezuela after failing to stage one during the Bush administration, it’s pushing regime change in Nicaragua, and The New York Times itself admitted this year that it was wrong to promote the false US government narrative of electoral shenanigans in Bolivia’s presidential race last year, a narrative which facilitated a bloody fascist coup.

    This is propaganda.

    What We Are Told and Not Told About the South China Sea | New Eastern Outlook

    31-07-20 02:52:00,

    CAR76343

    If war breaks out between China and the United States, there is a high probability that the precipitating factor will be the South China Sea. The United States is currently running another of its so-called “freedom of navigation” exercises in the region, employing no less than two aircraft carriers, together with their supporting armada of warships. The western media regularly report these naval exercises but rarely if ever is the historical situation put into any kind of context.

    There are in fact a number of important features of this confrontation between China and the United States that are seldom if ever discussed. A complaint by the Philippines to the Permanent Court of Arbitration received a judgement on 12 July 2016. The court ruled that there was no evidence of China having exercised exclusive control over the sea or its resources at any time. Therefore, the court ruled, there was no legal basis to the so-called “9 Dash Line” that China claimed to be within its exclusive jurisdiction.

    China rejected the court’s findings. This was hardly surprising from a purely historical point of view as China is able to demonstrate extensive control over the region going back hundreds of years, as Jianming Shen detailed in a lengthy scholarly analysis back in 2002.

    But historical situations are often of dubious relevance in the world of modern geopolitics. They are certainly not relevant in helping to understand the attitude and behaviour of the contemporary government in Beijing. But that is only part of the story. Historical precedents are certainly of no interest to the United States and Australia in their pursuit of what they are pleased to call “freedom of navigation” exercises in waters thousands of kilometres distant from their respective borders.

    This however, is simply empty verbiage. Neither country is able to point to a single incident of such free passage of civilian ships being in any way hindered. Given that at least 80% of China’s seaborne exports traverse the South China Sea, China of all nations has the greatest interest in unimpeded freedom of passageway.

    It would be both illogical and counter-productive for China to engage in any exercise that jeopardised the freedom of passage of civilian ships. Apart from its own vested interest,

    Frontline ER Doctor From Viral HCQ Video Fired From Job

    frontline-er-doctor-from-viral-hcq-video-fired-from-job

    31-07-20 01:23:00,

    Just days after the establishment – via its Big Tech partners and liberal media propagandists – entirely disappeared a viral video of a dozen doctors discussing their real-life experiences of treating COVID-19 (and in some cases using the “extremely dangerous” medicine – if mainstream media is to be believed – hydroxchloroquine) and getting children back to school; the founder of “America’s Frontline Doctors” – Dr. Simone Gold – has been fired from her job as an Emergency Medicine Specialist in Los Angeles, CA.

    As we previously noted, in the video, Dr. Gold said:

    “We’re here because we feel as though the American people have not heard from all the expertise that’s out there all across our country.” 

    She is also the head organizer of an open letter signed by more than 600 doctors calling on President Trump to end lockdown. The letter described widespread state orders keeping businesses closed and children home from school as a “mass casualty incident” with “exponentially growing health consequences.”

    The video was entirely disappeared from the web (except if you know where to look) within hours, and two days ago, Dr. Gold stated in a recent tweet that:

    “Our website host @Squarespace has just completely and arbitrarily shut down our website, claiming a violation of their terms of service.”

    WOW: Our website host @Squarespace has just completely and arbitrarily shut down our website, claiming a violation of their terms of service.

    We are a group of physicians advocating for a better understanding of COVID-19 and its available treatment options.

    This is outrageous. pic.twitter.com/TNwvpbsBGC

    — Dr. Simone Gold (@drsimonegold) July 28, 2020

    Gold had defended her views – which reflected her real-life experience as a board-certified doctor specializing in emergency medicine, not a journalist playing one on TV! – saying in a tweet that “there are always opposing views in medicine,” but that opposition should not be grounds for censorship.

    “Treatment options for COVID-19 should be debated, and spoken about among our colleagues in the medical field,” she wrote.

    Elon Musk and the Overthrow of Democracy in Bolivia – Global Research

    elon-musk-and-the-overthrow-of-democracy-in-bolivia-–-global-research

    31-07-20 01:22:00,

    On July 24, 2020, Tesla’s Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that a second US “government stimulus package is not in the best interests of the people.” Someone responded to Musk soon after, “You know what wasn’t in the best interest of people? The US government organizing a coup against Evo Morales in Bolivia so you could obtain the lithium there.” Musk then wrote: “We will coup whoever we want! Deal with it.”

    Musk refers here to the coup against President Evo Morales Ayma, who was removed illegally from his office in November 2019. Morales had just won an election for a term that was to have begun in January 2020. Even if there was a challenge against that election, Morales’ term should rightfully have continued through November and December of 2019. Instead, the Bolivian military, at the behest of Bolivia’s far right and the United States government, threatened Morales; Morales went into exile in Mexico and is now in Argentina.

    At that time, the “evidence” of fraud was offered by the far right and by a “preliminary report” by the Organization of American States; only after Morales was removed from office was there grudging acknowledgement by the liberal media that there was in fact no evidence of fraud. It was too late for Bolivia, which has been condemned to a dangerous government that has suspended democracy in the country.

    Lithium Coup

    Over his 14 years in office, Morales fought to use the wealth of Bolivia for the Bolivian people, who saw – after centuries of oppression – remarkable advances in their basic needs. Literacy rates rose and hunger rates dropped. The use of Bolivia’s wealth to advance the interests of the people rather than North American multinational corporations was an abomination to the US embassy in La Paz, which had egged on the worst elements of the military and the far right to overthrow the government. This is just what happened in November 2019.

    Musk’s admission, however intemperate, is at least honest. His company Tesla has long wanted access at a low price to the large lithium deposits in Bolivia; lithium is a key ingredient for batteries.

    UK Academics Advocate Silencing Dissent On Climate Change & COVID-19

    uk-academics-advocate-silencing-dissent-on-climate-change-&-covid-19

    31-07-20 08:19:00,

    Authored by Eric Worrall via WattsUpWithThat.com,

    According to Edge Hill University Professors Geoff Beattie and Laura McGuire, the way to prevent people ignoring climate change and Covid-19 messages is to “avoid presenting both sides of the argument”.

    Coronavirus shows how to get people to act on climate change – here’s the psychology

    July 29, 2020 8.22pm AEST

    Geoff Beattie Professor of Psychology, Edge Hill University
    Laura McGuire Research Fellow in Education, Edge Hill University

    With COVID-19, the early messaging attempted to circumscribe the nature of the threat. In March, the WHO announced that: “COVID-19 impacts the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions most severely.” Similar statements were made by the UK government.

    A reasonable interpretation of this would be that the virus does not “affect” young people. But as new clinical data came in, this message was changed to emphasise that the virus could affect people of all ages and doesn’t discriminate.

    The initial positive message for young people also created an “optimism bias”. This bias is very powerful – we know of various brain mechanisms that can ensure that a positive mood persists. One study found that people tend to have a reduced level of neural coding of more negative than anticipated information (in comparison with more positive than anticipated information) in a critical region of the prefrontal cortex, which is involved in decision making. This means that we tend to miss the incoming bad news and, even if we don’t, we hardly process it.

    To make climate change messages more effective, we need to target these cognitive biases. To prevent temporal and spatial biases, for example, we need a clear message as to why climate change is bad for individuals in their own lives in the here and now (establishing an appropriate affect heuristic). 

    And to prevent optimism bias, we also need to avoid presenting “both sides of the argument” in the messaging – the science tells us that there’s only one side. There also needs to be a clear argument as to why recommended,

    The Biggest Fraud Ever, Part 2: The Vaccine Swindle

    the-biggest-fraud-ever,-part-2:-the-vaccine-swindle

    31-07-20 07:58:00,

    Authored by Barry Norris via Argonaut Capital,

    Read Part 1 here…

    It was originally assumed that only those who had previously been infected by the virus and developed an antibody response had any immunity, hence the initial focus on testing for the presence of these antibodies as well as infection. However, studies of antibodies in formerly infected patients demonstrated accuracy issues which subsequently could be explained instead by the antibodies’ rapid decay in recovering patients.  The often disappointingly low levels of antibodies in population samples is often used as evidence that herd immunity is not a realistic goal without a vaccine.

    This is not correct.

    At the end of May there was a significant breakthrough in understanding of COVID antibodies which was not widely reported: a Swiss study from Zurich led by Professor Onur Boyman demonstrated that a large proportion of the population had a natural immunity through existing antibodies on the mucous membrane (IgA) or cellular immunity (T cells), likely to have been acquired through previous exposure to coronaviruses such as influenza or the common cold (the absence of exposure to previous coronavirus is now thought to explain the opposite effect in 1918).

    The study found that that the presence of (IgG and IgM) antibodies generated on infection which tests had previously focused on, were NOT in fact required to defeat the virus and that existing (IgA and T cell) antibodies that gave a natural immunity. Moreover, the population with this natural immunity was demonstrated to be five times greater than those with the IgG and IgM antibodies on which tests had hitherto focused. If this could be substantiated, then the population already exposed to COVID would also be five times greater than previously assumed. In other words, if a population sample showed 10% had IgG and IgM antibodies (which might be subject to decay) then it was likely that at least half of the population had already been exposed to COVID.

    It followed that antibody studies that measured only IgG and IgM that were now predicting population-based mortality risk of 0.1% to 0.5% (lower than the 1% in the elderly population aboard the Diamond Princess) could be even further reduced by a factor of five to 0.02% to 0.1% and the level of symptomatic exposure from 20% to below 5% (consistent with the flu season ironically predicted by Fauci in March).

    Syrian Army Uncovers Organ Trading Hub Of Turkish-Backed Militants In Southern Idlib | The Vineyard of the Saker

    syrian-army-uncovers-organ-trading-hub-of-turkish-backed-militants-in-southern-idlib-|-the-vineyard-of-the-saker

    South Front

    The joint Russian-Turkish patrol set to be held in southern Idlib on July 29 was delayed due to increased military tensions and the inability of Ankara to ensure the security of the patrol in its area of responsibility. And the situation does not seem to be improving.

    According to pro-militant sources, on the evening of July 29th and morning of July 30th, the Syrian Army launched over 500 shells at militants’ positions in the Zawiya Mount area, including Kansafra, al-Bara, Kafar Aweed, Fatterah and Erinah. In response, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies struck Syrian Army checkpoints at Kafr Nabl, As Safa, Hakoura and in nearby areas.

    In the last few days, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the Turkistan Islamic Party reinforced their positions on the contact line with the Syrian Army, south of the M4 highway. Their forces reportedly remain on high alert. Pro-government sources say that the inability of Ankara to secure another joint patrol in southern Idlib is a signal that the militants are preparing for offensive actions there.

    Meanwhile, the Syrian Army uncovered a hideout that had been used by militants working as organ traders in the village of al-Ghadfah in southern Idlib. According to Syria’s state-run news agency SANA, government forces found human organs, including hearts, livers and heads in the hideout. The organs were preserved in jars with chloroform. The jars carried the names of the victims. Personal IDs of the victims, men and women, were also found in the hideout.

    The hideout included a room designated for religious studies with radical ideological publications. This indicates that the site had belonged to one of the multiple militant groups that still operate in Greater Idlib thanks to the Turkish opposition to counter-terrorism operations there.

    Al-Ghadfah is located in the vicinity of the city of Maarat al-Numan and for a long time it has been controlled by Turkey’s main partner in Idlib – Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. The town was liberated by the Syrian Army and its allies in January 2020.

    Lt. Sharif al-Nazzal of the Syrian Military Intelligence Directorate (MID) was assassinated in the town of Sahem al-Golan in western Daraa on July 29. The lieutenant was with another intelligence officer known as “Abu Haider”,

    The Trivialization Of Money

    the-trivialization-of-money

    31-07-20 07:37:00,

    Authored by Mark Hendrickson, op-ed via The Epoch Times,

    About 60 years ago, Sen. Everett Dirksen (R-Ill.) uttered the famous quip, “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking about real money.”

    Has politics in Washington changed much in the six decades since? Yes and no. No, the same cavalier attitude about spending other people’s money rages on unchecked. Yes, the scale has changed drastically. Today the refrain is, a trillion here, a trillion there.

    “Trillion” is a simple word. It rolls effortlessly off the tongue. But the word’s simplicity belies the immensity that it signifies. If you stacked one-hundred-dollar bills flat on top of each other, a million dollars would be about 40 inches tall, a billion would be more than twice the height of the Empire State Building, and a trillion would rise over 631 miles. If those were one-dollar bills instead of hundreds, the pile (again, stacked flat on top of each other) would, if laid on its side, circle the Earth at the equator more than 2.5 times. In terms of time, if a you had been spending a million dollars a day, every day since the birth of Christ, you still wouldn’t have spent even three-quarters of one trillion dollars.

    The first time the entire GDP of the country exceeded $1 trillion, John Kennedy was president. The first time the national debt reached that sum, Ronald Reagan was president. Today, the national debt has soared to over $26 trillion. This summer, Uncle Sam set a record by spending over $1 trillion in a single month.

    Today, under the pressure of democratic politics in which government is viewed as a Santa Claus with infinitely deep pockets, the two parties (the party of Big Government—the Republicans—and the party of Bigger Government—the Democratic socialists—never propose freezing, much less (gasp!) shrinking federal spending. The only debate is about how many additional trillions of dollars of debt to add.

    Among its other deleterious effects, the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the pace at which our government is adding to the national debt. Having already authorized at least $2.9 trillion in emergency spending—close to half of which the government hasn’t even disbursed yet,

    Video: Covid-19 and the Censorship of Medical Doctors. LancetGate and the Suppression of Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) – Global Research

    video:-covid-19-and-the-censorship-of-medical-doctors.-lancetgate-and-the-suppression-of-hydroxychloroquine-(hcq)-–-global-research

    31-07-20 07:25:00,

    Medical doctors at an event in front of the US Supreme Court are accused of making false statements.  

    The video of their press conference was removed by Youtube and Facebook. They are accused by CNN of spreading “fake science”

    The doctors put forth Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as an effective Covid-19 cure.

    Why were they smeared by CNN? Why were they the object of censorship?   

    According to CNN, Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is sponsored by “Fake Pharma companies”. What utter nonsense.  The unspoken truth is that the statements of the medical doctors goes against the interests of Big Pharma.
