This blog is no longer as informative as it used to be because people thankfully have become much more aware of the falsehoods being perpetrated upon them by the institutions and “public servants” who they used to trust and are still compelled to fund. However here are a few recent notes: Biden’s dithering and idle threats over Ukraine have obviously not deterred Putin. Joe has said is that he is willing to apply economic sanctions after any invasion, but what he did not say is that he is also willing to send US troops into the fray as well – because border security is important to him. I doubt that the Biden administration gives a flip whether we approve of involvement in Ukraine or not. Some western (particularly EU) politicians are intentionally prodding Putin over the Ukraine crisis because they realize that after 3 years their COVID ruse to keep their people isolated, confined, and controlled is not fooling many of them anymore. These neocon-ists hope that war will galvanize popular support for their administrations against Russia.
But the threats of sanctions by western governments are hollow. Because of their ideological dogmatic push to kill fossil fuel-generated energy before private sector R&D had developed any genuinely pragmatic ‘green’ alternative to replace the wattage load, western Europe, particularly Germany, is highly dependent upon Russian natural gas to power its industry and to heat its homes. The Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten paper recently reported that the country has only 18 days worth of natural gas reserves, and that Putin could cause rapid and massive havoc in Europe by shutting-off his westward-flowing gas pipelines. So waging a sanctions campaign against him is a dangerous, if not foolish, game. Germany has actually gone so far as to prevent Estonia from giving Ukraine weapons to defend itself with.
NATO now seems to be a hollow organization that no longer upholds it mission: It certainly did nothing when Putin went into Belarus and Crimea. And since Europe has been more focussed on directing its wealth and resources toward converting to a Brussels-centric form of Marxism than to its defense, some conservative assessments say that Vlad could take all of Western Europe within a month – particularly if China launches an assault on Taiwan synchronously. Even if it had a pro-defense administration, the U.S. has insufficient deployable military assets to repel aggression on both of those fronts. Russia has warned that it will not rule out deploying troops to Cuba and Venezuela if its tensions with America continue to escalate.
The reason that the massive COVID human rights violations are losing ground is not only due to the fact that people cannot be deceived indefinitely; there are also new facts leaking out despite all the efforts to keep them bottled-up: Regulators at the European Union are warning that COVID-19 booster shots could compromise the immune system. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) stated that taking a booster shot every four months, as some have recommended, could weaken the immune system over time and adversely affect the body’s ability to ward off sickness. Additionally, the UK government now admits that those who have received the recommended two-shot vaccination protocol are showing damaged natural immune systems. It reports that once you have been double-vaccinated, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity to Covid variants – or possibly to other viruses. Specifically, in its Week 42 “COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report“, the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that “N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who become infected after two doses of vaccination”. It goes on to say that this drop in antibodies is essentially permanent. Might this have something to do with the sudden relenting on the vax mandate campaigns of the British and Irish governments ? And is the “real” pandemic therefore about begin ?… COVID infections are at a new high.
The British found that the vaccine interferes with the body’s ability to make antibodies after infection not only against the spike protein but also against other parts of the virus. In particular, vaccinated people do not appear to form antibodies against the nucleocapsid protein, the envelope of the virus, which is a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people. So over the long term, the vaccinated are significantly more susceptible to any mutations in the spike protein, even if they have already been infected and cured once or more. But at least we just paid a few billion dollars for a pile of new N95 masks.
It will be interesting to see how the COVID ruse crumbles. At present we have UK and Scandinavian countries lightening their COVID policies, and Spain downgraded the infection to the status of the annual flu. On the other hand, countries like France and Austria shun people without COVID passes from the public square and marketplace, while Australia has been incarcerating them into internment camps. One thing is certain: government leaders will never admit their mistakes nor atone for anything, especially while they are working to keep their people under control as they all come to understand that those leaders have spent away the lifetime promises (pensions, etc.) that they made to them.
The Fed just issued a report on adoption of CBDCs, so federal e-money is still incoming. The SEC has said that it will not ban existing cryptos, and banks are allowed to lend them. Morgan Stanley, Goldman, and JP Morgan offer crypto funds. I hope this really does mean that government will not outlaw independent cryptos along with cash if-and-when it moves to institute a federal CBDC. “Next-Generation” cryptos like Cardano, Polkadot, and Solana offer some really interesting possibilities (but then so did NFTs initially). As governments continue to denigrate their currencies, cryptos offer a more fungible medium of wealth exchange than hard assets, but how secure is their status ? It’s hard to anticipate what government will do. Biden & Co. are pushing for power over the people (with opening borders to soon-to-be pro-socialist voters, federalizing the election process, etc.) rather than responding to them with efforts to gain their approval.
Many governments and civilizations have fallen because of corruption and incompetent leadership, but never before have any done so by undermining their own economies and locking down their own people in order to forcefully implement some new pipe-dream utopian green Elysium (while executing some monetary legerdemain to excuse their own debt profligacy). It’s going to go down in history as one of the most appallingly stupid, naive, gargantuan and arrogant blunders ever – and we get to live it.
What to do about it ? I hope everyone has found their own means to remain peaceful and at-ease in the midst of all that’s happening. This is probably not the place to go on about it, but having some well-developed spiritual aspect of life is very key. You can never control the exterior, but you can find equanimity the more you go inside. So I’m just going to remain happy and relaxed and get ready to watch Mikaela Shiffrin perform in the olympics two weeks from now (while ignoring the politics surrounding it). At 26 she is already the most dominant slalom skier ever with 47 word cup victories, and she holds a total of 73 world cup victories across all of the ski racing events that she competes in. If she gets 13 more she will nudge out Ingemar Stenmark as the greatest ski racer ever. She should have plenty of time left to achieve that as long as she avoids serious injury or adverse effects from the COVID vax & booster that she, like all US Olympians, was forced to take. She had to stop training and rest through the final week of December because she still came down with COVID.
