“Past is prologue” – William Shakespeare, The Tempest


First of over 200 bodies being exhumed from Lugansk mass grave.
17 October, 2021

I recently witnessed the exhumation of human remains from a mass grave that contains over 200 bodies. It was a profound and profoundly disturbing experience. Each body in this grave represents an unnecessary and unjust death, a murder, and each of these over 200 murders can never be forgotten or forgiven. There is a message that cries out from these bones that must be heard and understood, and acted upon by all good people in the world. Otherwise, history will repeat itself, and again, the killers and the killing will continue, and more mass graves will be filled.

After seven years of war, a war that continues to this day, these 200 bodies are being exhumed from the mass grave that the war forced them into back in the summer 2014, during the heaviest attacks and siege by the Ukrainian “punishers” against the people of Lugansk. In those terrible days and nights of constant shelling and ever present danger, there was no water or electricity, no safe place to process the bodies, no chance at all for a regular funeral. Only now are conditions and resources finally available to put these peaceful and innocent civilians, along with some of their heroic Defenders, to rest with a proper burial.

All decent people must ask how mass graves (this is not the only one) came to be here, in Donbass, on the edge of Europe in the second decade of the 21st century. They must ask exactly who did this and why, not just who pulled the triggers, but even more importantly, who gave the orders, and they must demand to see justice done, to respect and understand history, and to prevent more mass graves from being filled with innocent civilians, not just here in Lugansk, but throughout Europe and the world.


“There, but for the Grace of God, lay I”

When the Obama regime orchestrated the coup d’etat against the democratically elected Yanukovich government in Kiev in early 2014, they used a grisly assortment of secret agents, ultra violent neo-nazis and oligarch traitors to depose Yanukovich and install a quisling gang of collaborators, whose primary traits were boot-licking fealty to their US masters, swinish avarice, and a willingness to terrorize and murder their own civilians while ruthlessly suppressing even the slightest resistance or even peaceful dissent . And all these same vile traits are shared by the US gauleiter, the self-described “point man”, who from the very beginning was the man in charge of Obama’s “‘Project Ukraine”, the man giving the orders and calling the shots of the US occupation, and of course, taking the big dog’s share of the looted billions – none other than Joe Biden.

Though today Biden is simply a senile puppet, back in the days of his Vice-Presidency, he was a ruthless gangster and a very dangerous man. He ruled Ukraine with an iron fist, like a true warlord or mafia chieftain. His word was law, and his law was obeyed by the groveling parasites and bloodthirsty sycophants he put into power. His orders to crush the legitimate uprising in Donbass including by war crimes and mass murder gave his ukrop henchmen no pause, and they scurried to fulfill their master’s orders, just as the Bandera collaborators had done for their German nazi masters 70 years before.

Vice-President Biden personally made six trips to Ukraine, half of them in 2014. This was during the heaviest attacks of the Ukrainian armed forces and the neo-nazi battalions against the people of Donbass, and Biden’s visits preceded by only a few days or weeks, the worst crimes of the war. There can be no doubt these crimes were done not only with Biden’s permission, but on his orders. These crimes include the murder of over 100 protestors and unarmed Berkut police by snipers at the Maidan in Kiev, the mass murder by burning to death scores of peaceful protestors in Odessa on May 2nd, the airstrike in Lugansk on June 2nd, and the false flag attack that murdered 298 innocent civilians on MH-17 on July 17th.

From Nuland and Pyatt hand-picking the new, unelected Ukrainian government, to every legal, political, economic and military decision, Ukrainian lapdogs jumped every time their US masters said “jump”. The orders were clear – suppress the uprising in Donbass by every means, legal or illegal, and the more brutal and ruthless, the better. And the attacks were brutal and ruthless, and now, Biden is back again.

Although Biden’s recent mental deterioration has clearly made him unqualified to drive a bus, (much less be President of the USA) his hubris and hypocrisy and his absolutely immoral obeisance to his masters, continue to make him a truly evil and dangerous man. Not just for Donbass or Ukraine, but for the world, and naturally, that includes the citizens of the USA as well.

Biden’s abandonment of Afghanistan should be a lesson to Ukraine, not just to the common people, but to the marionettes he put in power there. Just like the Afghan puppets the US appointed, the Ukrainians too are absolutely expendable at the slightest indication they are no longer useful. And just as the fate of Afghanistan should be a lesson for Ukraine, the fate of Ukraine should be a lesson for the people and countries of the EU. The blatant hypocrisy and double-dealing self interest with which the USA has handled Europe is now clear for all to see, as are the fatal consequences for those who have allowed it.

And all of the above must be a lesson for US and UK citizens as well. What goes around, comes around, and here it comes, now it’s your turn. Unless you stop it. The crimes of empire your rulers have committed against other people around the world, with nary a word of protest from you, will look and feel much different when they are happening to you yourself, to your family and your friends. You will be astounded and dismayed by the deafening silence and indifference the world will show for your suffering, just as you did for theirs.

But, if you stand up for yourselves and for Humanity, all good people in the world will stand with you, and support your courage and effort every way they can. It is up to the American People to liberate themselves, we can’t do it for you. If you continue to willingly submit to fascist oppression and criminal misrule, you will deserve what you have coming. Stand up now, while you still can!

“We do not forget. We do not forgive”

People get the government they deserve, and EU, UK and US citizens, for decades too long, have turned a blind eye to the crimes of their rulers, both at home and abroad. And now the buzzards come home to roost. The choice is yours, and the time is now. Inaction, pretending things will be OK, this is also a choice, and a fatal one. Choose wisely.

The people of the USA can still save their country and themselves. Only you can redeem yourselves and your country. The rest of the world is watching and waiting to see whether you have the wisdom and courage to do so. We support you and wish you well, but the responsibility is yours. Do it! Or be lost as Germany was lost in 1945, and deserve it.

This message from the grave also speaks to the citizens of the Russian Federation. From here in Donbass, an area flooded with blood, many times over, and even again today, we send to you a lesson, a reminder and a warning. It was not so many years ago that mass graves were being filled on your land, filled with your families and friends. Filled by the exact same kind of criminals that fill them in our land even today.

Two trenches, 200 meters long. Filled with human bodies.

Many people here in Donbass never could have imagined a war here, not in the 21st century. If someone had told them in 2013 that war was coming, they would have laughed in disbelief. Russians, remember your history! In 1945, the enemy was defeated, but not destroyed, and now they have returned to attack Russia and the world, to exterminate and enslave Humanity. It is a battle to the death, them or us. Either they will be destroyed, or we will. Do not fall for the siren song of Western liberalism, it is a lie. Look at how the US and EU have self-destructed in only 20 years. The same can happen in Russia if you let it, if you fail to support those who have defended and saved Russia.

Remember who it was that has saved Russia, brought it back from the edge of extinction and made it into a great power and the greatest force for good in the world today. Do not fall for the words of clowns and imposters who offer a false illusion of prosperity without time or work. This is the real world, and there is no free lunch. The current Administration is the best there is, for Russia and the world. In comparison, all other contenders are pygmies at best. Support those who have protected Russia from every attack, with courage, wisdom and skill. Be thankful, be patient, and be realistic. A new and better world is coming, and Russia is leading the way. Those who defend Donbass, defend Russia, and those who defend Russia defend Humanity. As goes Donbass, so goes the world.

Good luck to all good people. May God protect the innocent, and may the rest of us get all we deserve.

                                  Mr Flubber Flabbergaster

The preceding is echo of my (long since buried) ambition to write books for children. Geopolitical intrigue killed that dream. But perhaps my Victorian era vocabulary would have seen the demise of the ambition after-all; few can read at the level of Washington Irving these days, in a world where ‘literacy’ should be (if we are honest) synonymous with ‘antiquarian.’ People don’t know how to read anymore. That is, if ‘knowing how to read’ should include attention span of more than 1,500 words (the composition limit that can keep the ‘serious’ 21st Century internet reader), ability to absorb & retain, grow observational ability (acquire social intelligence) and not least, improve one’s overall person by building awareness of the culture & world one lives in.

So many things have changed in the past 200, 150, 100 and past 50 years. Time has accelerated exponentially, coupled to cultural decay, ‘sweat equity’ (investment) in learning has been sacrificed to technological developments demand of speed and accompanying stresses which require ‘expediting’ nearly everything; with final effect of imposing instant gratification upon what ‘once upon a time’ were the ‘joys of life’, reflected not only in ‘leisure’ (do people even know what relaxed enjoyment is anymore?) but genuine care taken in superior craftsmanship or work product coupled to personal pride and development. All of this can be linked to personal development.

Ok, so that was was a critical mouthful. But, it DOES sum up the social defect underlying an involuntary post-modern shallowness of today’s lost sheep or those many lemmings following so many geopolitical pied pipers hither & thither, trying to discover what is going on but lacking the critical tools (depth of personal development) to step back and observe accurately. People have been cheated and they should feel cheated.

A result of this is found in a metaphor; today’s alternative news junkies get swept up in cults of personality like the faithful flocking to gurus. The problem here is the West is not anything like Hindu culture or alternatively stated (paraphrasing Carl Jung) these people lack a cultural foundation and cannot practice authentically when seeking ‘news enlightenment.’

These germinating thoughts are result of this blogger (yours truly) noticing ‘political-demographic’ change in readership when taking repeated route away from established narrative that amount to ‘news cults’ that are attracted to read and then driven off when the subject of the inquiry changes. When digging into the Obama fraud, my conservative readership was strong, when I dug into the Trump fraud, there was drop and gain in readers of a different political cult and again when taking on the putrid Biden/Harris fraud, drop and gain, like the roller coaster. But these dips & peaks pale by comparison to the hit in readership when I’d recently turned my sights on Pepe Escobar [1] and Russian propaganda technique & cowardice [2], [3] (as separate entities.) Their readership amounts to cults of personality and their readers are seriously misled whilst noting Escobar produces for two imited hangouts: TomDispatch [4], [5] & The Asia Times notably also hosting intelligence disinformation specialists MK Bhadrakumar [6] & ‘Spengler.’ [7]

This site goes where the evidence leads without political alignment (but with a conservative ethic), and the cosmos has been kind, because Dr David Martin’s (may the gods bless him forever) piece on the covid fraud (reproduced at this site) [8] brought well over 20,000 new visitors to this small blog in a matter of months before the algorithms at duckduckgo search engine were adjusted to bury the article (articles at my site had been buried by the CIA aligned google search for years already.)

And, of course, mixed appreciation is always extended to the spooks who read at this site faithfully; maybe one day, some of them will ‘wake up’ … (noting there are indications some have.)

I recall it was 1974 I was drinking at the Sportsman Bar in Columbia Falls, Montana, when myself and a friend were confronted by a grizzled sheepherder. We were both young Vietnam veterans but with long hair, not unusual at all in the Northern Rocky Mountains. We called ourselves “Mountain People” and ourselves and peer generation grew up mixed with Indians, and we were not hippies at all. So, the sheepherder wanted to sort what type of longhairs we were, I suppose. Confronted with a garrulous character, my friend George & myself satisfied his curious but irreverent interrogation in a proper country-boy way (laughing at his questions with indirect answers consisting of jokes between us at what we heard) until he was becoming satisfied we weren’t from California or some such exotic place. But he’d then let his guard down and I nailed him with a joke that afterward I thought might kill him.

As if to finally test our authenticity with making a point only real country people know how to tell the most outrageous lie with a perfectly straight face (adapted from Native American humor technique), he pronounced to George and myself “I am 45 years old” (in fact a badly beat up 70 years would be a generous assessment) and took a large swig from his beer mug while judging our reaction. Striking like a snake, I told George “We had better check his teeth” (for wear, how the age of a horse for sale is determined, e.g. to be certain a mare advertised as 5 years old isn’t actually 15 years) and half his swig of beer must have gone to his lungs instead of belly, when he involuntarily laughed at/choked on, my observation (blowing beer out of his mouth, nose, and onto the bar.)

The antiquarian shepherd hung on to the rail of the bar, and barely managed that, while desperately struggling not collapse to the floor, his complexion radically changed as he went into extended coughing fit that both George and myself actually believed might kill him.

George was the more concerned of the two of us, better than my attitude was (mine had always had more Indian), as we deliberated aloud for the choking man’s edification, whether either of us was competent to, or even should attempt to resuscitate someone so grizzled, garrulous and disingenuous, if he dropped and passed out from choking. George was of the opinion resuscitation would be generous and speak well for our community, my position was our neck of the woods would be better off without such a character, after all, his life had been devoted to caring for what us cattle people called ‘prairie maggots’ and the sooner we’d be rid of any such abomination, the better for all concerned.

The old man recovered and didn’t have another word to say, and George and my conversation returned to ’normal.’ Such was life in the Northern Rocky Mountains in a bygone day.

THE FIRST SUPERHERO COMIC BOOK ABOUT RUSSIA – CAN YOU SPOT WHAT’S WRONG IN THIS PICTURE?

Читать по русски | Čitajte na srpskom

In previous articles at this site, there has been some discussion of ‘psyops’ (psychological operations) in its ‘civilian’ form (pioneered by Edward Bernays based on his uncle Sigmund Freud’s principles) euphemistically renamed ‘public relations’ or, the corporate form of applying propaganda to the consumer; little different to intelligence agencies targeting populations of hostile states with disinformation. [1], [2]

Each approach, whether ‘civilian’ or military, seeks to manipulate a populace away from their self interest (even survival) to the benefit of the propaganda’s perpetrators. Having seen the greed of Western corporate oligarchs operating within a psyops driven media system essentially ‘legalizing’ what could amount to state sponsored murder with impunity, or shortly restated; propaganda enhanced perversion of law employing a ‘state of emergency’ to authorize use of unstudied, experimental drugs and vaccines on an unsuspecting populace while suppressing a known to be safe, proven to be effective and inexpensive drug, ivermectin, to treat covid, now it’s time to study (shortly) the Russian propaganda machine and open a philosophical question for (perhaps) future discussion; what is the Russian state coping mechanism as put forward in media, and as importantly, why do the Russians apply the method one sees in the Russian propaganda outlets Sputnik & RT?

For those who’ve studied the Western propaganda method, it is clear the Edward Bernays’ ideal has triumphed on behalf of corporate boardrooms. In short, ‘public relations’ (media) is suborned to the sole benefit of the capital/corporate model. Western intelligence has become heavily invested in preserving what the USA calls its ‘vital national interests’, a euphemism for Western corporate control of the world’s resources and markets. All of this plays in the model envisioned by Bernays (pervasive lying to the public while incorporating principles of psychology), refined and applied to the modern media with a robust assist from the USA’s Central Intelligence (to which the NATO and European states intelligence agencies are historically/practically feudal vassals.)

Russian propaganda, on the other hand, recognizes the Western media model is so corrupt, the Russians need only more or less stick to the facts when reporting to the Western audience, to convince intelligent people their news platform is the superior model and ‘go to’ source to discover what is actually happening. Where the story might have ‘inconveniences’ that must be dealt with, ‘lies by omission’ (of certain facts) is a convenient practice as opposed to the outrageous lies more often put forward in Western media.

But then, there is a Russian propaganda method initiating what I call ‘the flip’ where the Russian propaganda skews things along (somewhat goes along with) the Western story-line; to neutralize or even co-opt the method employed by the Western intelligence (modified Bernays) model. In this case, when the Russians run with a Western propaganda lie, in order to ‘flip’ it, it usually is a ‘whopper’ (a really big lie.)

A contemporary example of this would be the Russians allowing the patently fraudulent Dutch Buk missile story (in the MH 17 show trial) to gain traction at Sputnik & RT because the Russians have solid evidence that particular missile was in the possession of Ukraine when MH 17 was downed. That the Ukrainians (independently of the MH 17 downing) exploded that particular missile to create false evidence and blame Russia is not a media war with the West the Russians are interested in. The Russian propaganda approach (flip) is ‘if you want to claim that particular missile brought down MH 17, fine, we have the original Soviet era paperwork showing Ukraine possessed it’, never mind all parties (intelligence agencies) know it was a Ukrainian Air Force SU 25 combat jet brought down the civilian passenger plane. [3]

In this case (at the expense of moral justice for the victims), casus belli is avoided; the NATO propaganda trap of drawing Russia into war with Ukraine is negated but the Russian domestic audience is deceived is a part of the price. Drunk and/or incompetent Ukrainian military can be blamed for what amounts to an ‘unintentional downing’ of the civilian liner (incompetently in turn blamed on Russia in the so-called MH 17 ‘trial’, a kangaroo court) in media whereas the deliberate shooting down of the plane by the recently upgraded Ukrainian Air Force SU 25 could not be excused in the propaganda of geopolitics (or perhaps more importantly, the Russian domestic audience.) MH 17 is evidence prima facie that political expediency drives Russian propaganda. The significant difference is, the Russian model is more often defensive whereas the Western model is almost exclusively offensive (aggressive.)

Whether this immediate preceding justifies the Russian propaganda lies is a straw man argument in relation to the effect lying will have on the sentient awareness of the larger social psychology of the Russian populace; for the fact both models are corrupt. The one cannot excuse the other. Endorsement and application of avenue to a lesser evil nevertheless constitutes an avenue to evil. Any expediency embracing the lesser evil does not resolve the greater evil, the greater evil is not contained over long term, but ‘reboots’ again and again.

“RT is now a global, round-the-clock news network of eight TV channels, broadcasting news, current affairs, and documentaries, with digital platforms in six languages and sister news agency RUPTLY. Round-the-clock news channels in English, Arabic, Spanish, and documentary channel RT Doc, in English and Russian, broadcast from Moscow, while RT America airs from Washington, RT UK from London, and RT France from Paris. Today, RT is available in more than 100 countries spanning five continents”

Note [my] bold in the screenshot caption; RT does NOT broadcast in Russian language except in the extremely limited case of documentary films. What is it this large omission conceals from the Russian language community? Exposure to the Russian state side’s international propaganda in the information wars. Why?

The reasons could be manifold; but there are two instance that should stand out.

1) In a more general sense, RT panders to the Western liberal audience, anathema to the more conservative Russian body politic and Orthodox voter; essentially it should be embarrassing at best, and alienating at worst, were were the average Russian to be aware of much of the material touted as ‘injustice’ by the Russian state in its presentations to the West of controversies concerning Western social/cultural issues. Example given would be what the more conservative personality would take to be [in your face] ‘gay evangelism’ (e.g. LGBT ‘pride’ parades pushing homosexuality in a community’s face & legislation enforcing LGBT be taught in schools) is not presented in a balanced light conducive to protecting traditional (conservative) values, rather the focus is on the (e.g. neo-nazi) extremes of violence unleashed on these people with tepid (at best) defense of the traditional values deserving a more positive light. This phenomenal aspect of the Russian propaganda machine is necessary to attract and keep media personalities on the farther reaches of the Western liberal left and attract a Western liberal fan-base for purpose of anti-Western propaganda (which is not always a bad thing, when assessing the deceits of the Western model.)

2) In this context there is little reason to believe Covid 19 would not be subject to the intelligence agency driven propaganda wars between the Western democracies and Russia. But it is more complex than this. In some respects the Russian covid propaganda ‘flip’ at times resembles an inferiority complex in competition with Western European culture for appearance sake (medical technology/covid vaccine) and what cannot be overlooked is Russian big pharma moves to benefit from the ‘instant gratification’ of domestic propaganda efforts. [4], [5]

This approach depends on lies by omission, a trap-prone approach replete with hazards, in this case:

Falling Into the Trap of the West’s Straw Man Propaganda

Russia is (at this point) heavily invested in ‘flipping’ the West’s covid propaganda; as it touts the (oligarch enriching) Sputnik V vaccine. In the geopolitical world of vaccine propaganda, there are concealed ‘lesser evil’ taints in regards to what is safer, more effective or more widely available to poorer or otherwise disadvantaged populations and nation-states. The Chinese employed the ‘classic’ dead virus method in creation of their vaccine, the safest and most responsible vaccine route, the Russians employ Adenovirus method that has some track record in combating disease in humans, whereas the Western states are massively killing people (driving the pandemic) with big pharma greed driven EUA (emergency use authorizations) experimental mRNA technology that causes the virus to mutate and adapt. [6], [7]

What is the Difference Between the mRNA and Adenovirus Vaccines?

The key difference between mRNA and adenovirus vaccine is that mRNA vaccines usually consist of a copy of mRNA with a protective chemical shell, while adenovirus vaccine consists of a harmless virus that encodes the virus spike protein. mRNA vaccine is a vaccine against infectious diseases such as influenza virus, Zika virus, rabies virus, Covid 19 and as well as cancer. Adenovirus vaccine is a vaccine mainly against respiratory diseases. It also acts against HIV, Ebola virus, Influenza virus, Covid 19, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Plasmodium falciparum. Moreover, mRNA vaccine is directly injected into a muscle, whereas adenovirus is given orally. In addition, mRNA vaccines are easier to create than antigen proteins or attenuated virus. The speed of design and production of mRNA vaccines are higher than adenovirus vaccines.

The below infographic represents the difference between mRNA and adenovirus vaccine.

Difference Between mRNA and Adenovirus Vaccine in Tabular Form

Summary – mRNA vs Adenovirus Vaccine

mRNA vaccine is a type of vaccine that uses a copy of mRNA to produce an adaptive immune response. mRNA is complementary to one of the DNA strands of a gene. Here, mRNA vaccine introduces mRNA encoding disease-specific antigens and stimulates the protein synthesis of the host cells to produce antigens. This produces an immune response. Adenovirus vaccines are orally administered capsules that contain live viruses. It mainly acts against adenovirus infections. Adenovirus is a double-stranded DNA virus, and it is species-specific, thus consisting of various serotypes for a variety of species. The capsule of adenovirus is usually coated so that the virus passes through the stomach, causing an infection in the intestines. This stimulates an immune response. Thus, this is the summary of the difference between mRNA and adenovirus vaccine. end quote [8]

Note on the immediate preceding would be (among other things in what amounts to a Western propaganda wars piece, keep reading) this ‘explanation’ neglects to mention it is ‘synthetic’ (lab manipulated-inserted) mRNA utilized in the EUA (experimental) mRNA vaccines. Both vaccines are a form of gene therapy, however the Russian adenovirus vaccines have some background/history of use in medicine for human disease, whereas prior to covid, the mRNA technique appears to have been explored in research, primarily animal research, a Western propaganda ‘lie by omission’ in the article.

By this time, the Russian state is so heavily invested in the covid propaganda ‘flip’ where the immediate takeaways (instant gratification) of making their product appear to be superior (it probably is, although likely not so safe as the Chinese ‘classic’ dead virus technique), together with proselytizing the availability of Sputnik V to disadvantaged nation-states & populations (because in fact the Western democracies HAVE been selfish with distributing their own mRNA vaccines, the deadly irony of this should not be lost on the reader), they’re in too deep to escape the inconvenience of this vaccine geopolitical propaganda war is a straw-man trap; for the fact the covid pandemic could be ended in a few months with simple instruction to the world’s physicians to treat “symptomatic covid” (only) as little more than a common flu that needs a prescription of Ivermectin, and the complex gene therapy vaccines should be altogether unnecessary.

In the vaccine propaganda war from the Russian side, it cannot now be admitted by the Russian propaganda bosses it has been discovered NATURAL immunity (in the unvaccinated/asymptomatic/recovered) is the best overall defense against covid. The Russian state is trapped and cannot employ information that, if it were acted upon, should bless the Russian populace with health & security, and be devastating to the West’s criminal leadership via exposing the liberal democracies corrupt (murderous, actually) domestic mRNA vaccine propaganda efforts. [9]

Essentially, the Russian state has now, with an ever-growing propaganda ‘lie by omission’, become trapped & complicit in what may turn out to be the greatest crime against humanity in the annals of Western civilization.

Russian intelligence should certainly know this and Russians at the top of the political leadership, at least some of them, have to have known these facts for quite some time. How do you admit to the world that you’ve played into the liberal democracies dirty game when your ‘flip’ follows the avenue to a lesser evil that morphs into a greater evil (Russian big pharma & associated industries profits) nevertheless? You can’t. And certainly you cannot admit this to your own people, the political cost is too high. Prior to covid, even on those occasions I couldn’t agree with him, I thought Putin was a remarkable leader. Now, I’m not positively convinced of Putin’s leadership at all. Russian big pharma & ‘friends’ (via Russian propaganda game bosses) would appear to own him. [10]

At the end of the day, leadership in time of crisis cannot usurp the sovereignty of any national psyche (trust/faith based consent of the governed) with lies and a ‘what they don’t know, won’t hurt them’ (lies by omission) rationale and expect fortuitous outcomes over long term. Setting aside the the external targets of the propaganda machines altogether, it becomes a matter of what the domestic audience consumes will determine the fate of any regime. From the monarchies beholden to the Church at Rome to Goebbels to the Bernays model governing for the Biden-Harris regime to Putin’s propaganda bosses, it should become clear to any ‘gifted student of history’ (one who does not suffer the myopia of ethno-centric bias) in position of leadership, that one cannot lie to ones’ own people and ultimately expect positive outcomes. Western civilization hasn’t seen this honest ethic for a very long time. [11], [12]

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

Note by this blog author would be, and you can quote me: “I hate Donald Trump. I believe he is a scum-bag in his own right (the Roy Cohn factor) and was altogether too willing to perform political fellatio on the worst of the criminal element in the religious right (the Coe cult ‘mikes’ factor represented in Pence-Pompeo) as well as sucking up to the world-class international criminal actor Bibi Netanyahu. On the other hand, I should say Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are equally evil in their own right. This re-posted article captures the reasons why, never-mind Trump himself, I DO NOT despise Trump supporters, not that I love them all, and most certainly I do not admire the vast majority of Biden/Harris supporters whose civics education (constitutional ethics) seems to have somehow gone missing at best, or have been discarded as ‘inconvenient’ at worst. Many of the conservative but snookered voters are law abiding and principled people, as well, many of the liberal voters in denial are not.”

NOTE FROM GLENN GREENWALD: On Friday, a relatively obscure Twitter user with fewer than 7,000 followers — posting under the pseudonym MartyrMade — posted one of the most mega-viral threads of the year. Over the course of thirty-five tweets, the writer, a podcast host whose real name is Darryl Cooper, set out to explain the mindset that has led so many Trump supporters to believe that the 2020 election was fraudulent and, more generally, to lose faith and trust in most U.S. institutions of authority.

Numerous journalists, including me, promoted the thread as one of the most insightful analyses yet published explaining the animating convictions underlying the MAGA movement. That night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson devoted a seven-minute segment to doing nothing more than reading Cooper’s thread. At the CPAC conference on Sunday, former President Donald Trump explicitly recommended the thread using Cooper’s name. In the last four days, Cooper’s Twitter account has gained more than 70,000 followers. Clearly, this thread resonated strongly with that political faction as a true and important explanation of how many MAGA voters have come to understand the world.

For our Outside Voices freelance section, we asked Cooper to elaborate on his influential thread, with a focus on what led him to these observations about prevailing MAGA sentiments and why he believes they are important for people to understand. As Cooper notes, he does not share all of the perceptions and beliefs he is conveying, although he shares many of them. Instead, based on the recognition that most media outlets are incapable of understanding let alone accurately describing the views of a group of people they view with little more than unmitigated contempt, condescension and scorn, he believes it is imperative that people understand the actual reality of what is motivating so many Trump voters in their views, perception and beliefs — regardless of whether each particular belief is accurate or not.

We also believe this understanding is vital, which is why we are happy to publish Cooper’s essay. It should go without saying that, as it true of all of our articles published on Outside Voices — which we treat as an op-ed page — our publishing of this article does not signify agreement with all of its claims, but only our belief that it is a viewpoint worth airing.

By Darryl Cooper

I quit Twitter last August. Quit for good. Other than posting links to two new episodes of my podcast, I stayed away for eight months and didn’t regret a thing. Around mid-June I let myself be persuaded that social media engagement was part of having a podcast, so I dipped back in, promising myself I’d avoid being pulled into politics. Things haven’t gone as planned.

The temptation was disguised cleverly as a conversation with a friend’s mother. She was visiting from upstate New York and we got to talking while my buddy was in the house tending to my goddaughter. She’s a hardcore Trumper from a less cynical generation that believes what she hears from sources she trusts. She’d been hounding her son about the stolen election all week, and he’d been trying to disabuse her of various theories involving trucked-in ballots and hacked counting machines. Now she had me cornered and put the question to me: “Do YOU think the election was legit?” So I told her the truth: I don’t know.

By the time my friend had put the baby to bed and rejoined us, we were waist-deep in a discussion about what happened last year, and she was satisfied that I was on her side. “See?!? He (she meant me) knows what’s going on! I’m not crazy. He’s smart, and HE knows!” My friend pulled the Captain Picard facepalm, and said, “Darryl, what the f*ck are you telling her?”

What I told her was some version of the Twitter thread Tucker Carlson read on air Friday night and which President Trump, using my name, then explicitly promoted in his speech to CPAC on Sunday, which has blown my inbox, and my promise to stay away from politics, to smithereens.

I told her I didn’t know much about the ballots, or the voting machines, or some company that she’d heard had ties to Venezuela. I didn’t follow Sidney Powell, or Lin Wood, or the details of the cases proceeding through the system. I think it was around the time Rudy Giuliani chose a landscape & gardening emporium as the location for a press conference on what would have been the greatest political scandal in American history that I made the conscious decision to stop paying attention. Or maybe it was the dripping hair dye, or something about a kraken — it’s all sort of blended together these days.

But I felt for her. She wasn’t the first person with whom I’d had the discussion, and I felt for all of them. I’ve had the discussion often enough that I feel comfortable extracting a general theory about where these people are coming from.

RUSSIAGATE: THE ORIGINAL SIN

Like my friend’s mother, most of them believe some or all of the theories involving fraudulent ballots, voting machines, and the rest. Scratch the surface and you’ll find that they’re not particularly attached to any one of them. The specific theories were almost a kind of synecdoche, a concrete symbol representing a deeply felt, but difficult to describe, sense that whatever happened in 2020, it was not a meaningfully democratic presidential election. The counting delays, the last-minute changes to election procedures, the unprecedented coordinated censorship campaign by Big Tech in defense of Biden were all understood as the culmination of the pan-institutional anti-Trump campaign they’d watched unfold for over four years.

Many of them deny it now, but a lot of 2016 Trump voters were worried during the early stages of the Russia collusion investigation. True, the evidence seemed thin, and the very idea that the US & allied security apparatus would allow Trump to take office if they really thought he might be under Russian blackmail seemed a bit preposterous on its face. But to many conservatives in 2016 and early 2017, it seemed equally preposterous that the institutions they trusted, and even the ones they didn’t, would go all-in on a story if there wasn’t at least something to it. Imagine the consequences for these institutions if it turned out there was nothing to it.

We now know that the FBI and other intelligence agencies conducted covert surveillance against members of the Trump campaign based on evidence manufactured by political operatives working for the Clinton campaign, both before and after the election. We know that those involved with the investigation knew the accusations of collusion were part of a campaign “approved by Hillary Clinton… to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.” They might have expected such behavior from the Clintons — politics is a violent game and Hillary’s got a lot of scalps on her wall. But many of the people watching this happen were Tea Party types, in spirit if not in actual fact. They give their kids a pocket Constitution for their birthday. They have Yellow Ribbon bumper stickers, and fly the POW/MIA flag under the front-porch Stars and Stripes, and curl their lip at people who talk during the National Anthem at ballgames. They’re the people who believed their institutions when they were told Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. To them, the intel community using fake evidence (including falsified documents) to spy on a presidential campaign is a big deal.

It may surprise many liberals, but most conservative normies actually know the Russia collusion case front and back. A whole ecosystem sprouted up to pore over every new development, and conservatives followed the details as avidly as any follower of liberal conspiracy theorists Seth Abramson or Marcy Wheeler. When the world learned of the infamous meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, it seemed like a problem and many Trump supporters took it seriously. Deep down, even those who rejected the possibility of open collusion worried that one of Trump’s inexperienced family members, or else a sketchy operative glomming onto the campaign, might have done something that, whatever its real gravity, could be successfully framed in a manner to sway a dozen of John McCain’s friends in the Senate.

Then, Trump supporters learned that Veselnitskaya was working with Fusion GPS, the political research and PR firm used by the Clinton campaign to formulate and spread the collusion accusations. They learned that the anti-Clinton information that was supposed to be the subject of the notorious meeting was provided by the same firm. They learned that she’d had dinner with Glenn Simpson, the owner of Fusion GPS, both the day before, and the day after the meeting. Needless to say, Trump supporters were skeptical of Simpson’s claim that Veselnitskaya’s meeting with Trump campaign officials never came up during either of their dinner dates, given that the content of the meeting was alleged to be the very treasonous, impeachable crime his firm was being paid to investigate and publicize.

There’s no need to relive all the details of the Russia collusion scam. The point is that conservatives were following it all very closely, in real time, and they noticed when things didn’t add up. After James Comey told Fox News’ Bret Baier that, even at the time of their interview in April 2018, he didn’t know who had funded the Steele dossier, conservatives noticed when the December 2019 DOJ Inspector General’s report showed that he had been informed of the dossier’s provenance in October 2016. And they asked themselves: Why would he lie? Lying to investigators about one’s knowledge of or involvement in a potentially criminal act is often taken as consciousness of guilt.

This was the bone that stuck in conservatives’ craw throughout the two years of hysteria over Russia. Why would Comey lie about knowing where the dossier came from? Why would the people involved claim to have seen evidence that never seemed to materialize? If the point of the Special Counsel is to take the investigation out of the hands of line investigators to avoid the appearance of political influence, why staff the office with known partisans and the same FBI personnel who originated and oversaw the case? Why was the relationship between Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya and Fusion GPS being dismissed as irrelevant? Why were people who must know better continuing to insist that the Steele dossier was originally funded by Republicans long after the claim had been debunked? Why wasn’t the media asking even these most obvious questions? And why were they giving themselves awards for refusing to ask those questions, and viciously attacking journalists who did ask them? These journalists are intelligent people — at least they present that way on television. Is it possible that these questions simply had not occurred to them? It seemed unlikely.

Many Trump supporters reasoned that it was simply not possible to carry on this campaign without some degree of coordination. That coordination perhaps did not take place in smoke-filled rooms (though they weren’t ruling it out), but at least through incentives, pressure, and vague but certain threats all well-understood by people who moved about in the same professional and social class, and who complained that they could “smell the Trump support” when they were unfortunate enough to have to patronize a Wal-Mart.

If there was a time when Trump supporters feared Robert Mueller’s goon squad, that time had passed by the 2018 midterm elections. Conservatives knew by then the whole case was bunk, and they were salivating at the prospect of watching him get chopped up by the likes of Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes. And he did.

The collusion case wasn’t only used to damage Trump in the polls or distract from his political agenda. It was used as an open threat to keep people from working in the administration. Taking a job in the Trump administration meant having one’s entire life investigated for anything that could fill CNN’s anti-Trump content requirement for another few days, whether or not it held up to scrutiny. Many administration employees quit because they were being bankrupted by legal fees due to an investigation that was known by its progenitors to be a political operation. The Department of Justice, press, and government used falsehoods to destroy lives and actively subvert an elected administration almost from the start. Perhaps worst of all, some portion of the American population was driven to the edge of madness by two years of being told that American politics had become a real-life version of The Manchurian Candidate. And not by Alex Jones, but by intelligence chiefs and politicians, amplified by media organizations which threw every ounce of their accumulated credibility behind the insanity.

For two years, Trump supporters had been called traitors and Russian bots for casting ballots for “Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster.” They’d been subjected to a two-year gaslighting campaign by politicians, government agencies, and elite media. It took real fortitude to stand up to the unanimous mockery and scorn of these powerful institutions. But those institutions had gambled their power and credibility, and they’d lost, and now Trump supporters expected a reckoning. When no reckoning was forthcoming – when the Greenwalds, and Taibbis, and Matés of the world were not handed the New York Times’ revoked Pulitzers for correctly and courageously standing against the tsunami on the biggest political story in years – these people shed many illusions about how power really operates in their country.

Trump supporters know – I think everyone knows – that Donald Trump would have been impeached and probably indicted if Robert Mueller had proven that he’d paid a foreign spy to gather damaging information on Hillary Clinton from sources connected to Russian intelligence and disseminate that information in the press. Many of Trump’s own supporters wouldn’t have objected to his removal if that had happened. Of course that is exactly what the Clinton campaign actually did, yet there were no consequences for it. Indeed, there has been almost no criticism of it.

Trump supporters had gone from worrying the collusion might be real, to suspecting it might be fake, to seeing proof that it was all a scam. Then they watched as every institution – government agencies, the press, Congressional committees, academia – blew right past it and gaslit them for another year. To this day, something like half the country still believes that Trump was caught red-handed engaging in treason with Russia, and only escaped a public hanging because of a DOJ technicality regarding the indictment of sitting presidents. Most galling, conservatives suspect that within a few decades liberals will use their command over the culture to ensure that virtually everyone believes it. This is where people whose political identities have for decades been largely defined by a naive belief in what they learned in civics class began to see the outline of a Regime that crossed not only partisan, but all institutional boundaries. They’d been taught that America didn’t have Regimes, but what else was this thing they’d seen step out from the shadows to unite against their interloper president?

THE ESTABLISHMENT UNITES

GOP propaganda still has many conservatives thinking in terms of partisan binaries. Even the dreaded RINO (Republican-In-Name-Only) slur serves the purposes of the party, because it implies that the Democrats represent an irreconcilable opposition. But many Trump supporters see clearly that the Regime is not partisan. They know that the same institutions would have taken opposite sides if it had been a Tulsi Gabbard vs. Jeb Bush election. It’s hard to describe to people on the Left, who are used to thinking of American government as a conspiracy and are weaned on stories about Watergate, COINTELPRO, and Saddam’s WMD, how shocking and disillusioning this was for people who encouraged their sons and daughters to go fight for their country when George W. Bush declared war on Iraq.

They could have managed the shock if it only involved the government. But the behavior of the press is what radicalized them. Trump supporters have more contempt for journalists than they have for any politician or government official, because they feel most betrayed by them. The idea that the corporate press is driven by ratings and sensationalism has become untenable over the last several years. If that were true, there’d be a microphone in the face of every executive branch official demanding to know what the former Secretary of Labor meant when he said that Jeffrey Epstein “belonged to intelligence.” The corporate press is the propaganda arm of the Regime these people are now seeing in outline. Nothing anyone says will ever make them unsee that, period.

This is profoundly disorienting. Again, we’re not talking about pre-2016 Greenwald readers or even Ron Paul libertarians, who swallowed half a bottle of red pills long ago. These are people who attacked Edward Snowden for “betraying his country,” and who only now are beginning to see that they might have been wrong. It’s not because the parties have been reversed, and it’s not because they’re bitter over losing. They just didn’t know. If any country is going to function over the long-term, not everyone can be a revolutionary. Most people have to believe what they’re told and go with the flow most of the time. These were those people. I’m pretty conservative by temperament, but most of my political friends are on the Left. I spend a good deal of our conversations simply trying to convince them that these people are not demons, and that this political moment is pregnant with opportunity.

Many Trump supporters don’t know for certain whether ballots were faked in November 2020, but they know with apodictic certainty that the press, the FBI, and even the courts would lie to them if they were. They have every reason to believe that, and it’s probably true. They watched the corporate press behave like animals for four years. Tens of millions of people will always see Brett Kavanaugh as a gang rapist, based on an unproven accusation, because of CNN. And CNN seems proud of that. They helped lead a lynch mob against a high school kid. They cheered on the most deadly and destructive riots in decades.

Conservatives have always complained that the media had a liberal bias. Fine, whatever: they still thought the press would admit the truth if they were cornered. They don’t believe that anymore. What they’ve witnessed in recent years has shown them that the corporate press will say anything, do anything, to achieve a political objective, or simply to ruin someone they perceive as an opponent. Since my casual Twitter thread ended up in the mouths of Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump, I’ve received hundreds of messages from people saying that I should prepare to be targeted. Others don’t think that will happen, but even most of them don’t think it’s an irrational concern. We’ve seen an elderly lady receive physical threats after a CNN reporter accosted her at home to accuse her of aiding Kremlin disinformation ops. We’ve seen them threaten to dox someone for making a humorous meme.

Throughout 2020, the corporate press used its platform to excuse and encourage political violence. Time Magazine told us that during the 2020 riots, there were weekly conference calls involving – among others – leaders of the protests, local officials responsible for managing them, and members of the media charged with reporting on the events. They worked together with Silicon Valley to control the messaging about the ongoing crisis for maximum political effect. In case of a Trump victory, the same organization had protesters ready to be activated by text message in 400 cities the day after the election. Every town with a population over 50,000 would have been in for some pre-planned, centrally-controlled mayhem. In other countries we call that a color revolution.

Throughout the summer, establishment governors took advantage of COVID to change voting procedures, often over the protests of the state legislatures. It wasn’t only the mass mailing of live ballots: they also lowered signature matching standards, axed existing voter ID and notarization requirements, and more. Many people reading this might think those were necessary changes, either due to the virus or to prevent potential voter suppression. I won’t argue the point, but the fact is that the US Constitution states plainly that “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections… shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof.” As far as conservatives were concerned, state governors used COVID to unconstitutionally usurp their legislatures’ authority to unilaterally alter voting procedures just months before an election in order to help Biden make up for a massive enthusiasm gap by gaming the mail-in ballot system. Lawyers can argue over the legitimacy of the procedural modifications; the point is that conservatives believe in their bones – and I think they’re probably right – that the cases would have been treated differently, in both the media and in court, if the parties were reversed.

And then came the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Liberals dismiss the incident because, after four years of obsessing over the activities of the Trump children, they insist they’re not interested in the behavior of the candidate’s family members. But this misses the point entirely. Big Tech ran a coordinated censorship campaign against a major American newspaper while the rest of the media spread base propaganda to protect a political candidate. And once again, the campaign crossed institutional boundaries, with dozens of former intelligence officials throwing their weight behind the baseless and now-discredited claim that the laptop was part of a Russian disinformation campaign. That lie was promoted by Big Tech companies, while the true information being reported by The New York Post about the laptop’s contents was suppressed. That is what happened.

Even the tech companies themselves now admit it was a “mistake” – Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said it was an error and apologized – but the election is over, Joe Biden has appointed Facebook’s government regulations executive as his ethics arbiter, so who cares, right? It hardly needs saying that if The New York Times had Donald Trump Jr.’s laptop, full of pictures of him smoking crack and engaging in group sex, lots of lurid family drama, and emails with pretty direct discussions of political corruption, the Paper of Record would not have had its accounts suspended for reporting on it. Let’s remember that stories of Trump being pissed on by Russian prostitutes and blackmailed by Putin were promoted as fact across the media spectrum and used as the basis for a multi-year criminal investigation, when the only evidence was a document paid for by his opposition and disavowed by its primary source.

The reaction of Trump supporters to all this was not, “no fair!” That was how they felt about Romney’s “binders of women” in 2012 or Harry Reid’s lie that Romney paid no federal taxes. This is different. Now they were beginning to see, accurately, that the institutions of their country — all of them — had been captured by people prepared to use any means to exclude them from the political process. And yet they showed up in record numbers to vote. Trump got 13 million more votes than in 2016 – 10 million more than Hillary Clinton had gotten.

As election day became election night and the tallies rolled in, Trump supporters allowed themselves some hope. But when the four critical swing states (and only those states) went dark around midnight, they knew.

Over the following weeks, they were shuffled around between honest critics, online grifters, and media scam artists selling them conspiracy theories. They latched onto one then another increasingly outlandish theory as they tried to put a concrete name on something very real, of which election day was only the culmination. Media and Big Tech did all they could to make things worse. Everything about the election was strange, confusing, and unprecedented – the changes to procedure, unprecedented mail-in voting, counting delays, etc – but rather than admit that and bring everything into the open, they banned discussion of it (even in private messages!), and launched an absurd propaganda campaign telling us that it was – I’m not making this up – the most well-run and secure election in American history.

Conservatives know – again, I think probably everyone knows – that just as Don Jr.’s laptop would have been the story of the century, if everything about the election dispute was the same, except the parties were reversed, suspicions about the outcome would have been taken very seriously. See 2016 for proof.

Even the judiciary had forfeited its credibility with these voters because of the opposition’s embrace of political violence. Trump supporters say, with good reason: What judge will stick his neck out for Trump knowing he’ll be destroyed in the media as a violent mob burns down his house? Maybe most judges would do their jobs, but given the events of the last four years it’s not an unreasonable concern, and the concern itself is enough to cast the whole system in doubt. Again, we know, thanks to Time Magazine, that riots were planned in cities across the country if Trump had won. Sure, they were “protests”, but they were planned by the same people as during the summer, and everyone knows what it would have meant. The Chamber of Commerce took the threat of a second round of destruction of its members’ property seriously enough to offer its assistance to the “well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information” – Time’s words, not mine.

Trump voters were adamant that the governors’ changes to election procedures were unconstitutional. Everything in law is open to interpretation, but it doesn’t require a Harvard Law degree to read Article 1, Section 4 (quoted above) and come to that conclusion. But they also knew the cases wouldn’t see a courtroom until after the election, and what judge was going to make a ruling that would be framed as a judicial coup d’etat just because some governors didn’t go through the proper channels? Even a judge willing to accept the personal risk would have also to be willing to inflict the chaos that would follow on the country. Even a well-intentioned judge could convince himself that, whatever happened or didn’t happen, as a public servant he had no right to impose an opinion guaranteed to lead to mass violence – because the threat was not implied, it was direct. Some Trump supporters, unfortunately, thought the license for political violence applied to everyone; the hundreds of them now sitting in federal jails learned the hard way that it wasn’t true.

From the perspective of Trump’s supporters, the entrenched bureaucracy and security state subverted their populist president from day one. The natural guardrails of the Fourth Estate were removed because the press was part of the operation. Election rules were changed in an unconstitutional manner that could only be challenged after the deed was done, when judges and officials would be playing chicken with a direct threat of burning cities. Political violence was legitimized and encouraged. Major newspapers and sitting presidents were banned from social media, while the opposition enjoyed free rein to promote stories that were discredited once it was too late to matter. Conservatives put these things together and concluded that, whatever happened on November 3, 2020, it was not a free and fair democratic election in any sense that would have had meaning before Donald J. Trump was a candidate.

Trump supporters were led down some rabbit holes. But they are absolutely right that the institutions and power centers of this country have been monopolized by a Regime that believes they are beneath representation, and will observe no limits to prevent them getting it. I encourage people on the Left to recognize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in front of them. You’re not going to agree with the conservatives on everything. But if in 2004 I had told you that the majority of the GOP voter base would soon be seeing the folly of the Iraq War, becoming skeptical of state surveillance, and beginning to see the need for action to help the poor and working classes, you’d have told me such a thing would transform the country. Take the opportunity. These people are not demons, and they are ready to listen in a way they haven’t in a long, long time.

Don Rumsfeld: 9 July 1932 – 29 June 2021

Obituary

You all have heard of the first grade primer ‘Dick and Jane’? Well, as fate would have it, Dick did not grow up to love Jane, because Dick (like Don) matured into a homosexual in denial, or “RRR” (sounds like a Rottweiler growl), one of those closet morality, socially/sexually frustrated and consequently mean people known as a Religious Right Republican.

So, this has to be a adult repressed homosexual ‘dick’, or machismo porn variation, of the ‘Dick and Jane’ story. Consequently, the story of how Don Rumsfeld met his demise, because of Dick Cheney’s dog, is pretty screwed up. It’s called: Don & ‘dick.’

Rumsfeld was visiting ‘big dick’ Cheney at Cheney’s ranch in Wyoming, Cheney was wishing he could have shot George Bush in the face with his shotgun because the coward George flinched and did not pull the trigger on Iran…

While reminiscing missed opportunities at initiating Armageddon, wishing they could have shot more people in the face, especially more Arabs, and about their longing for certain fascists to be in their lives, past and present, secular and religious.. among other things, Rummy suddenly asked ‘big dick’ why his Rottweiler, “Machismo”, was always chained up at his kennel.

Mean people have mean dogs and, dick explained to Don that “Machismo” had an edge about him, Machismo simply could not be trusted around visitors. dick went on to explain how he wished it were otherwise and how he wished Machismo could be trusted to obey him and only tear apart people that he did not like, he’d tried dog trainers but they cost him money, too much money, because Machismo took a chuck of flesh out of all of them, every dog trainer he had tried. His insurance premiums had gone sky high, all on account of Machismo.

Rumsfeld: “Why don’t you get a different dog?”

Cheney: “Because I love my Machismo.”

Then Don had an idea.

Rumsfeld: “Hey dick, there is the Arapaho Indian Reservation right up the road, why don’t you get a Medicine Man to take the edge off your Machismo? I saw on the Discovery Channel the Indians can talk to animals, you know they are all devil worshippers, so maybe there is something to it.”

dick’s eyes brightened considerably, an amazing thing, as though a light had turned on upstairs, but then his brow furrowed back to normal, as though nobody were home.

Cheney: “That’s the problem. They are all devil worshipers, you know, Indians are sorcerers like the Old Testament forbid be ‘found among us.’”

So Don & dick discussed that and came up with a solution. If they were not at dick’s ranch while the medicine man worked with dick’s Machismo, the sorcerer would not be found ‘among them’ and it would all be ok in the end, because St Paul had said “All things work together for good” for Christians like Don & dick. So they sent a Secret Service agent to find a medicine man with an explanation of how dick would like the edge taken off of his Machismo, and then went quail hunting, so the Indian sorcerer would not be ‘found among them.’

The secret service agent found a medicine man, a Blackfoot married to an Arapaho and living in Wyoming, a typical dumb Indian, who with a look of stunned disbelief, kept asking the agent again and again “What!?” After the agent had identified himself four times and explained dick Cheney wanted the edge taken off his Machismo eight times, a light filled this Blackfoot Indian’s eyes, this agent was serious, and the devil was right at home.

Indians know when the gods deliver the opportunity of  a lifetime, and this was opportunity at redemption. It had been awhile since the medicine men had been noticed, that is, the now days scarce authentic ones, and the agent had stumbled onto the real thing. First and foremost, this Indian believed in the Native law of reciprocity and well knew how it worked, something the Whitemen had not sorted out since Jesus had told them about it two millennia ago: “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

In this Indian’s world view, the opportunity was all about deliverance, and the attending attrition from any consequence, a sort of natural quantum mechanics shamanic death manifest by friendly fire, simply would have to be tolerated, because the medicine men are all about manifesting truth, and this native cultural idea taken together with the dogs name, set out the path to healing dick’s Machismo: The dog would have to be taught how to enjoy narcissistic sex, instead of biting people.

Initially, the medicine man realized he would have to endure Machismo’s instinct to hump his leg, that was disturbing, but to reach the goal beyond… The Indian told the agent, well, ok, he would do it for ‘dick.’ The agent missed the straight faced Indian humor… and utterly failed his agency’s chartered mandate.

Indians are observational people, primarily, and know the purpose of dog butt sniffing rituals, sort of like when a Blackfoot and Cree spot each other from across a boulevard in downtown Calgary, the hair goes up on both backs and both Indians are thinking to the other “You can sniff my butt” in a historical context, and it is not a friendly thought. The actual butt sniffing between them is purely psychic, preceding any challenge and fight, and the medicine man doctoring dick’s Machismo would need to circumvent this phenomena to achieve his aims. So sorcery came into play. He collected urine from a bitch in heat, rubbed a little of it on his knee, and bringing more along in a vial, he traveled to heal dick’s Machismo.

The dog was very happy to see him, no hostility or butt sniffing ritual encountered at all, the Indian told the agent ‘the spirits’ required he had to work with the dog alone, brought out a plastic baby rattle wrapped in leather with a few strings with beads, to look convincing, and dick’s fundamentalist christian body guard was more than happy to leave. Then this Indian, bringing out the vial of bitch urine, began to work with dick’s Machismo: “Now Machismo, my leg is a good beginning, but we have to show you something, you don’t need my leg or me at all, you can do this all for yourself- just follow her scent to where it feels so right….”

In Blackfoot language we have a word, I don’t know how to spell it in the Whiteman’s language, but it sounds something like oww-woe-tops and it means you are crazy and “everyone knows the Whiteman is crazy” is a Blackfoot proverb proven again and again, example given, ‘dick’ Cheney hiring an Indian that hates him, as every Indian should, to tame his Machismo. There is another Blackfoot word I dare not try to pronounce here, but it means “Dog Face.” It is about as bad as Blackfeet language profanity gets, and it is not as tame as it might seem, initially. The term refers to a certain facial expression…

Don & dick were headed back to dick’s ranch, the agent had called and told them the medicine man had pronounced dick’s Machismo healed and was leaving, and as fate would have it, the medicine man, and Don & dick passed each other on the dirt and gravel country road, the Indian pushing his 1968 Chevy pickup named the “Red Jet” as hard as he could, the worn out 327 V-8 boiling blue smoke into the dust storm he was whipping up behind him, windows down, braids flying, wild eyed panic combined with a maniacal mirth at his crime, co-mingled with prayers to all the gods that he WOULD escape… thinking when he saw Don & dick “you can sniff my butt” while trying to put on as many miles as he could, as fast as he could, to escape dick’s ‘spread.’ Don said “God Damn”, dick in the same moment saying “he must have brought along his whiskey”…

Then, ‘dick’ & Don, walking to the kennel, turned a corner bringing Machismo into view in that very moment Machismo was swallowing it, gulping himself down with a certain facial expression… Don had a sudden epiphany, and he exclaimed “Machismo sucks!”, and dick’s perpetual grimace of hate torqued down to the point it actually broke his primitive semblance of a mind, he pulled his permitted concealed weapon…

The camera pans away to the beautiful red rock cliffs of Wyoming, there was a first shot echoed together with Machismo’s dying yelp, Don shouted “NO!” and the second shot was heard… a pause.. the third shot sounded and America never heard ‘dick’ Cheney say “Terror” again.

In the here-after, for all of eternity, Don repeated “Look Dick, look. See Machismo suck!” And for all of eternity Dick shot Machismo and Don, again and again and could not kill them or himself (because they were already dead.)

The Secret Service agent kept his mouth shut about his role in the cause behind the Rumsfeld/Cheney murder/suicide, and no one came after the medicine man who laughed for years, again and again like a child, every time he recalled:

“you can sniff my butt”

HARVEST

Part one HERE                                                      Čitajte na srpskom

In part one the reader was introduced to psyops (psychological operations) in its ‘civilian’ form (pioneered by Edward Bernays based on his uncle Sigmund Freud’s principles) euphemistically renamed ‘public relations’ or, the corporate form of applying propaganda to the consumer; little different to intelligence agencies targeting populations of hostile states with disinformation. Each approach, whether ‘civilian’ or military, seeks to manipulate a populace away from their self interest (even survival) to the benefit of the propaganda’s perpetrators. Having seen (in part one) the greed of western corporate oligarchs operates within a system essentially ‘legalizing’ what could amount to state sponsored murder with impunity, or shortly restated; allows for a ‘state of emergency’ to authorize use of unstudied, experimental drug that is very expensive,  Bamlanivimab, on an unsuspecting populace in lieu of a known to be safe, proving to be effective and inexpensive drug, ivermectin, to treat covid, with the latter suppressed in corporate media. Now, we will look at the present ‘public relations’ (psyops) that point to disinformation relevant to vaccines (or so-called vaccines.)

Semantics & Splitting Hairs

What is a vaccine? Traditionally, a vaccine refers to employ of ‘inactivated’ (dead) virus to stimulate an immune response. The Chinese covid vaccine is based on this methodology, as were many years (decades) of flu shots. This method allows the immune system to do its job naturally.

What is gene therapy? For the past two decades, gene therapy refers tinkering with the genetic material itself, including mRNA. But Moderna denies its anti-covid therapy employing mRNA is gene therapy:

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from the Moderna website: “Gene therapy and gene editing alter the original genetic information each cell carries. The goal is to produce a permanent fix to the underlying genetic problem by changing the defective gene. Moderna is taking a different approach to address the underlying cause of MMA and other diseases. mRNA transfers the instructions stored in DNA to make the proteins required in every living cell. Our approach aims to help the body make its own missing or defective protein. Unlike gene editing and gene therapy, mRNA technology does not change the genetic information of the cell” [1]

Well, Moderna lied. Not about the technique but the fact that mRNA research has fallen under the rubric of “gene therapy” for decades, as demonstrated at the National Institute of Health library in a plethora of research papers:

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from the National Institute of Health website: “Synthetic messenger RNA [mRNA] as a tool for gene therapy” [2]

What the Moderna psyops people want you to think (when disingenuously narrowing the definition of gene therapy) is, because they are not modifying the DNA, where the actual genes are located, it is not gene therapy. But guess what? RNA is also genetic material with significance when it is subjected to corporate scientific (greed driven) monkey business.

The imperfect (but adequate) analogy would be DNA comprises the headquarters issuing instructions intended to build certain structures. mRNA is the courier delivering the DNA blueprint to the construction site. What mRNA “gene therapy” accomplishes is, it swaps the blueprint little different to if you’d sent instructions via a courier service but the instructions you’d sent are not what arrived at the intended destination because someone in the courier service had substituted the original with an altered set of instructions. In the case of the Moderna covid gene therapy (it is NOT a vaccine in any sense of what ‘vaccine’ meant prior to covid) the problem is (again, as in the case of Bamlanivimab in part one) this therapy has been ‘fast tracked’ and employed under emergency powers that forego the normal required studies that law would require prior to approval. In short, the long term health implications for the people receiving this therapy is unknown or restated, psychopath (greed driven) corporate lobbyists ($) have bought, convinced or otherwise subverted institutions to a point the common citizens are little different to lab rats.

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from the Popular Mechanics website: “After a remarkably accelerated development period, two experimental COVID-19 (coronavirus) vaccines are almost ready for primetime. Both use a technology called messenger RNA (mRNA), which has been studied and experimented with for decades in different forms, but has never been used in a commercial vaccine” [3]

Note the terminology “accelerated development”, “experimental” and “never been used.” In short other words, inadequately studied and only authorized for the fact of a ‘state of emergency.’

Screenshot of the “Emergency Use Authorizations” for Moderna & Pfizer mRNA injections at the USA’s Food & Drug Administration website [4]

Following on part one (the suppression of an effective, cheap anti-covid drug, ivermectin, while promoting an unstudied, experimental drug, Bamlanivimab), in this follow on part two, it becomes clear promoting human health and rapid recovery is not the primary objective of the institutions charged with containing the so-called “pandemic.” In fact, it would appear transcendent corruption is treading a path towards a state of biological terror waged by the Western governments on its own citizens in absence of any practice of ethical self restraint that should have 1) employed ivermectin as a safe, cheap and effective covid cure and 2) developed a classic vaccine, with proven safe method based on ‘inactivated’ (dead) virus as the Chinese had done. Meanwhile, let’s hope the Chinese act responsibly in further research efforts when considering mRNA gene therapy. [5], [6], [7], [8]

Follow the Money

In whose interest is using the national body of citizens as lab rats?

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from the American Broadcasting Corporation website: “Gates, who had invested in the vaccine technology in 2015, emphasized the importance of messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines ending this pandemic and potentially ones to come in the future” [9]

Bill Gates is hardly a molecular scientist. What Bill Gates actually is, is a narcissist. Does Bill Gates understand that mRNA is experimental, understudied technique, that quite possibly could prove to be anything but beneficial to human health over long term? A narcissist won’t entertain the question. But the matter of fact is, Bill Gates is playing God with his wealth buying influence determining covid policy on a global scale in circumstance of demanding employ of experimental, understudied and/or untested remedies that can only be approved with emergency authorizations because they are NOT proven safe.

World Health Organization illustration (screenshot) showing the Gates Foundation is the WHO’s 2nd largest provider of funds (after the USA) in 2018-2019, the Gates’ contribution exceeding USD $500,000,000 for the period. [10], [11]

Lies by Omission

Meanwhile, in Serbia, media remaining silent on the effectiveness of ivermectin while the use of the experimental Bamlanivimab is allowed without warning of its unstudied/untested status (this author had emailed this information to several English language Serbian news outlets with no acknowledgement or reply), and where there is no exam of the experimental nature of the mRNA anti-covid injection, also allowed in Serbia, there appears to be an element of rank hypocrisy when the authority is threatening imprisonment for ‘fake news’ concerning vaccinations when the state itself is withholding information the citizens should require to make informed decisions; because it is truly disseminating fake news to allow citizens the impression mRNA ‘vaccines’ (gene therapies) are safe.

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from Telegraf website: “Both [Minister of Justice Maja Popovic and Minister of Health Zlatibor Loncar]
referred to the Criminal Code, which in Article 343 stipulates that anyone who, by presenting or transmitting false news or allegations, causes panic or serious disturbance of public order or peace or thwarts or significantly impedes implementation of decisions and measures of state bodies or organizations exercising public authority, shall be punished by imprisonment of between three months and three years, and with a fine” [12]

In light of the preceding, we should close with a dry observation; criminal negligence is demonstrated throughout the institutions charged with containing corona virus (on a global scale.) Whether due to corporate psyops (propaganda) manipulating narcissism in a state of greed driven political expediency or preying upon incompetence, transcendent corruption is the (above the law) corporate-coopted-corrupted state’s exercise of impunity. Who’s to panic? Leadership in a state of exposure?

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

Čitajte na srpskom

Since the days of Edward Bernays adapting his uncle Sigmund Freud’s psychological principles to propaganda (euphemistically renamed ‘public relations’) for purpose of corporate advertising, the world’s populace has been exposed to what the intelligence agencies refer to as ‘psyops’ or “psychological operations.” In certain circumstance these operations are carefully designed to be supported by politicians in the intelligence agency sense of ‘backstopped’ or restated: Lying to the public requires unethical ‘convincing’ (lying to) a nation’s leadership to accomplish certain (greed driven) marketing objectives. Furthermore, this ‘culture’ can easily reflect what rogue CIA officer Phillip Agee had noted becomes a social-environmental phenomenon:

“You get so used to lying that, after awhile, it’s hard to remember what the truth is.” 

In short other words, capitalism’s lobbyist (public relations) infection creates a social-cultural environment where ‘truth’ becomes a ‘relative’ or incidental, accidental, or oftentimes, a deliberately concealed (depending on the level of awareness within the hierarchy) thing with little bearing on what has become a plasticized, or artificial, reality for the targets of larger psyops (populations.) [1]

The ‘psyops’ or psychology integrated to lobbyists’ presentations prepared for politicians are actually a necessary ‘pre-psyop’ to accomplish the larger psyops goal of manipulating a populace to ‘buy’ and it goes something like this hypothetical analysis of what is recently happening in Serbia:

“Patients … have started receiving a new drug against Covid-19, Bamlanivimab, which prevents further spread of the infection, that is, the progression of the disease from mild to severe…” [2]

Nowhere in this news presented at the Serbian media site is there any mention that

1) Bamlanivimab is an experimental drug that had been initially authorized for use against covid in the USA in December 2020 only because of a state of emergency; the drug has not been put through the necessary studies and medical trial procedures the law would normally require to protect the consumers.

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from drugs.com: “It is not yet known if Bamlanivimab is a safe and effective treatment for any condition” [3]

2) Ivermectin, a cheap, generic drug, with a safety track record of 50 years use, had been shown in laboratory testing (April 2020 or a full year ago) to kill 99.8% of the covid 19 virus in 24 hours, but this medical fact is practically unknown to the Serbian medical community. Why?

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from drugs.com: “The trials so far have shown ivermectin reduces the number of cell-associated viral RNA by 99.8 % in 24 hours” [4]

3) Following the (dated April 2020 in the above screenshot) ivermectin lab test result on covid, this drug was used in Peru and there was a DRAMATIC DROP in covid deaths, that is until there was a change in political administration and the use of ivermectin had been restricted, which saw a DRAMATIC HIKE in covid deaths [5]

4) Demand from top health professionals across the world pushing data at the World Health Organization to attempt authorizing the use of ivermectin merely elicits a promise of a ‘probe’, no matter the existing positive result indicated in multiple trails comes from some of the top specialists in the world (as government institutions like the USA’s Federal Food & Drug Administration drag their feet and demand large, time consuming studies)

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from an MSN article on World Health Organization & ivermectin: American pulmonary and critical care specialist Pierre Kory, president of the Front-Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) – a group of critical care specialists and published academic authors developing treatment protocols to prevent the transmission of Covid-19: “It is certainly another tool in the toolkit and we need everything we can to go after this pandemic. It’s not that I think that Ivermectin can help people. I know it helps people. The data is unmistakable and consistent. It shows quicker time to viral clearance, lower viral loads, faster times to recovery and lowered mortality rates” [6]

5) So, we have gone from “It is not yet known if Bamlanivimab is a safe and effective treatment for any condition” to the suppression of a known to be safe (fifty years) drug that is shown to beat covid. Why? A cheap generic drug (ivermectin) that is effective doesn’t make Eli Lilly (big pharma) money. The price of a experimental drug Bamlanivimab dose for covid? USD $1,250.

The price for an effective against covid dose of ivermectin? Over 95% less than Bamlanivimab

Yet Bamlanivimab is the national governments (not only in USA but following the USA’s lead) covid treatment of choice, even as the USA’s National Institute of Health allows (if not endorses) ivermectin as a covid treatment due to overwhelming pressure from medical professionals [7]

Highlighted in the illustration (screenshot) from the Blitz news site: “Safe, inexpensive, widely available, with a decades-long track record, and even a Nobel Prize attached to it, the drug recently cleared National Institute of Health (NIH) hurdles to be an allowed treatment for Covid-19. Frontline doctors using the drug to great success argue it needs to be adopted widely and rapidly”

“Transcendent Corruption” is legal but unethical and immoral gains that exacts a social price up to, and is inclusive of, unnecessary suffering and death. It is in a sense legalized murder with impunity. It works like this: ‘science’ is presented to politicians by psyops (public relations) trained parties in a culture of political lies where lobbyists simply point to the USA ‘approving’ (not mentioning under emergency powers, forgoing safety studies) the unproven, experimental drug Bamlanivimab and altogether remain silent on ivermectin. Because the politicians are dependent on the lobbyists money and associated power, whether in ‘legal’ form of donation (transcendent corruption’s method of bribe) or other forms of enrichment such as investment, they simply accept the lobbyists’ word and Eli Lilly (big pharma’s player in this case) makes immense amounts of money with a dice throw on the common citizens backs; where the citizens not only pay the outrageous sum for the unproven medicine with taxes, the citizens will, in the absence of safety studies, perhaps pay in future with their literal lives. In the case someone brings up ivermectin as a plausible alternative, the lobbyists will point to the USA’s Food and Drug Administration (or other governments & agencies) recommending against its use, as well the World Health Organization having not yet approved ivermectin’s use, and fail to mention the USA’s National Institute of Health allows the use of ivermectin and the many positive reviews for this safe, cheap drug in treating covid by medical professionals across the world.

Relevant to the preceding, in Serbia, Transcendent Corruption in media takes a twofold track; neither of which is good for the common people. 1) the ‘regime’ is attacked as corrupt by those Western style media outlets characterized as ‘opposition’ but in fact are funded by a ‘who’s who’ of color revolution instigators such as Soros, and the many usual suspects fronting for Western intelligence agencies, such as the several organizations functioning under the ‘umbrella’ (‘whorehouse’ would be the better noun) of USAID. Predictably, there should be little interest in raising awareness concerning ivermectin in these ‘opposition’ media venues pushing agendas for Western corporate capitalism and its oligarch minions, in this case, those associated with big pharma. 2) There will be little motivation for the ‘regime’ to correct its mistakes in a sea of political lies and raise awareness concerning ivermectin; where in circumstance of  Transcendent Corruption, with a psyops (public relations) assist, the principal leaders assume a posture of (self) denial of the actual facts; the regime’s politicians will have actually convinced themselves they are doing what is good for the people (authorize Bamlanivimab) and state controlled media will not bite the hand that feeds them. This is cumulative result of psyops preying upon a frailty of human psychology per the observation of Thucydides 2,500 years past:

“It is the habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they would prefer not to examine”

“…It is also clear that the overall death rate in 2020 was exceeded by the five years of 1999-2003. I need to define the death rate here, as it is based on the deaths per thousand people, which eliminates the fact that populations were lower in earlier years. It’s a given that larger population might have a higher death total from a given disease, but not a higher death rate. Diseases work on the susceptible individuals of a population and, thus, it is a proportion of the population that becomes ill or dies.

“That said, how does the death rate in the UK for 2020 compare to previous years? It is clear that the death rate in the UK for 2020 was not exceptional compared to previous years. How can that be? If you have Covid-19 as well as influenza killing people, what is going on? An observation has been made that, for some mysterious reason, influenza, as of April in the US, dropped to zero and continues at zero in the latest flu season.

“In light of the apparent missing influenza, claims have been made that masking, distancing, and lockdowns were completely effective against influenza, but then there is no talk about its failure in stopping Covid-19, which is a virus of the same size and transmission mode.

“Then, we are told that Covid is still around because people are not masking and such properly, which means influenza should also still be around in the US. Since these are infectious viruses, how can these restrictions be effective against one virus and not the other? It does not make sense.

“It is also easy to find that US states with strict mandates have the same rates of PCR-positive cases as those who do not. The conjecture can be made that influenza cases are largely reported as Covid-19, based either on a positive PCR test result or on symptoms alone.

“In the US, it is clear that there has been a monetary incentive for diagnosing the disease and encouraging hospitalizations. The cessation of other medical procedures and tests during this period clearly is going to lead to increased overall deaths. The fact that there appears to be no excess deaths despite this, indicates that the C-19 virus itself was not as lethal as they claim.

“Overall, the death rate in the UK is not out of line with the normal death rates from other years and clearly not close to the highest in the last 22 years. It is difficult to consider influenza deaths when there appears to be a bias toward categorizing influenza and other causes as Covid-19 deaths.

“Every year and, for that matter, all year long, there is a population of health-critical individuals who may be overwhelmed by a flu-like illness and open to pneumonia complications. The questionable Covid-19 PCR test appears to be keeping the presence of Covid-19 alive, possibly detecting viruses of the current flu season.

“The WHO is now admitting that that this test can be 97% false positives or more, with higher processing cycle numbers. The argument could be made that we have an epidemic of [false positive] testing…”

Or so says PhD biologist Banson Wilcot at ‘fringe conspiracy’ site Principia Scientific International. [1]

So, I looked up several references not related to the ‘fringe conspiracy’ site itself on the subject of how the ‘flu vanished’ and Wilcot seems to spot on.

Why? I was trying to make sense of Covid numbers in Serbia (that don’t make sense) and Wilcot’s was the first article I’d come across that addressed the issue in a sensible way. Specifically, I wanted to know how a vicious pathogen (Covid) could justify pandemic “measures” when the national mortality rate for the year 2020 hadn’t spiked (at all) in comparison to previous years:

Graph: Serbia’s death rate has been flat at 13.2 deaths average per 1,000 for the past four years; 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020. [2]

The ‘fringe conspiracy’ site then caused me to look at other statistics to establish (or disestablish) its veracity while casting a wider net to see what is going on elsewhere in comparison to Serbia and violà! The so-called ‘progressive’ site VOX News supports two points made by ‘fringe conspiracy’ author Wilcot:

1) Flu has virtually vanished in the USA (VOX graph credit to Center for Disease Control and Prevention) for the 2020-2021 statistical season &  2) the VOX article upholds the oxymoron pointed out by Wilcot; crediting masks for the ‘historic’ low level of flu in the same environment where masks have NOT halted the spread of Covid, a disease spread by identical method. Clearly, someone is not being honest concerning the ‘vanished flu’ phenomenon and it would appear that dishonest someone is VOX and is NOT ‘fringe conspiracy’ author Wilcot. [3]

Now, for some initial perspective on what certainly appear to be grossly inflated figures ascribed to Covid in the USA with highly unreliable PCR tests as well as forgoing tests for other pathogens (includes the vanished flu and likely many tens of thousands of deaths by other pathogens and related underlying cause such as frail health or any other reason wrongly attributed to Covid.) [4]

If we take the roughly 500,000 deaths ‘attributed’ to Covid in the USA and apply that as a percentage to the USA population of about 330 million for the 2020-2021 season, Americans arrived at sacrificing their civil liberties for a 0.15% gross population Covid death rate that relies on severely inflated (official) Covid numbers incorporating the missing flu and untold other causes of death such as stress related deaths due to underlying health issues aggravated by lock-downs, Covid related policies pushing people into poverty & higher mortality, America’s staggering problem with obesity (Covid kills obese people in high numbers), attrition in America’s exploding homeless population et cetera. These numbers won’t be properly sorted before years of study but in the meanwhile a highly politicized (Dr ‘Faustus’ driven) Covid panic-power grab dishonestly lumps everything together. Bolstering Wilcot’s account:

I still can’t find 500,000 excess deaths caused by Covid in 2020; they’re simply not there among the diseases the CDC reported out and since the base risk is 1/50,000 even across half the population being infected we could only account for 3,000 deaths. It is thus clear that if in fact Covid-19 has killed anywhere near the number of people claimed those other morbid conditions, all of which are serious diseases standing alone, have to account for the increase between them. Indeed the most-common, by far (40% of additional deaths by disease) were due to heart attacks and the next was diabetes at 13%. Between diabetes and heart attacks, both almost-exclusively due to lifestyle choices and thus your personal decisions, 53% of the excess 120,475 deaths are accounted for. If we add in strokes, which also are largely lifestyle-related then we’re at about 2/3rds.

Among those diseases that are allegedly “the biggest comorbid factors” I can find only 120,475 more deaths that Covid-19 may have contributed to and which included those diseases as a causal factor in total. Did Covid-19 cause all of those 120,000 additional deaths or were they caused by, in the case of diabetes, strokes and heart attacks for example, the additional 50lbs that a material percentage of people put on during the lockdowns (and over 20lbs on average!) from eating takeout trash full of fast carbs and being involuntarily cooped up in their homes? We do not know so this can only describe an upper boundary or caused mortality — not a lower one. This analysis doesn’t mean even more people didn’t die with Covid, but an alleged “Covid” death that wasn’t accompanied by one of the CDC’s specifically-called out diseases” (maybe those 500,000 USA covid deaths don’t actually exist: 24 April 2021 update, read it HERE)

As pointed out by Wilcot, the official USA numbers (that don’t add up) are consistent with what is observed in the United Kingdom’s data. It should be expected this will be the case elsewhere.

Back to Serbia:

If we take the ‘official’ Covid death rate 0.9% or 4,700 deaths (necessarily includes the ‘missing’ flu and other untold manner of death) and rather than apply this to what should be called ‘the includes false positives aggregate’ or 516,000 (reported positives) and instead apply this official death statistic (4,700) attributed to Covid to the 8,700,000 population of Serbia as whole (includes untested & tested negative) to arrive at 0.05%, it is only then a flat national death rate (no significant statistical increase) for the ‘pandemic’ year 2020 begins to make sense because it is only then we can understand what happened to the ‘missing’ flu and other, untold manner of death. They’ve been folded into the Covid statistic. There is no other straightforward explanation. [5]

Now that ‘fringe conspiracy’ author Banson Wilcot PhD is vindicated, let’s shortly note one other article at the ‘offending’ site Principia Scientific International on Covid: the article by another PhD (psychology), Dr Elsa Schieder, on Ivermectin. In short, she simply states what is known to be a scientifically established fact; Ivermectin cures Covid, except in those states that suppress this information about an effective, generic (cheap) drug that should render the vaccine hysteria moot. [6], [7]

The inescapable conclusion is that Covid, although real, and in some cases deadly, is not nearly so lethal on a societal-wide basis as it is presented to us, and need not be nearly so lethal as it presently is. The obvious question is why?

Social Analysis

Firstly, in Western cultures particularly, people lie to themselves, especially when it comes to pecuniary interests versus altruism. There is big money in addressing Covid as a (blown out of proportion) ‘pandemic’ and self importance takes on altruism as a lie (self deceit of doing the right thing) when in fact it is the pecuniary interests (money is power) driving the urge to control. So, the Covid ‘pandemic’ is not as much a conspiracy to control populations (even as strategies are devised to do this) as much as it is a self-importance inflating, power driven meme.

Western style politicians (taking bait from the sociopath oligarchs fishing for them with lobbyists) are narcissists, and narcissists are those personality constructs which are most prone to self deceits. In lay terms, it should be said our leaders are self-aggrandizing morons incapable of comprehending the damage they are causing is by far worse than the damage which should happen if they were to step out of the way, stop politicizing medicine and let the community doctors do their job with a full set of Covid facts available to them (e.g. treat with Ivermectin.)

Insofar as the ‘fringe conspiracy’ site Principia Scientific International, well, in fact it harbors an Islamophobe associated personality like the Dr Elsa Schieder mentioned above, who it just happens provided accurate information on Ivermectin, together with any number of other trained scientists who do not (for whatever reasons) find a place in mainstream to have a voice. What does it say about Western culture when searching for the better information, one finds it at a site that is not entirely wholesome? How is that somehow more damning than the Western media lies we are fed every day by corporate entities protecting the interests of Western oligarchs and their corrupt self (and societal-wide) political deceits concerning Covid, leading to unnecessary loss of life?

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

“We see 100,000 ukrop troops on the Front, scores of trainloads of troops, armor, ammo and fuel moved into the Donbass region, we hear the heated rhetoric, the preparations for war on both sides of the info sphere”

Or so states my well connected source in Donbass, speaking of activities on either side of the (momentarily) ‘frozen’ conflict. Never mind the Ukrainian military has been shelling the ethnic Russian ‘separatists’ with heavy artillery for weeks (a small detail neglected in Western press.)

When the shit hits the fan on the Donbass (Eastern Ukraine) battlefields again, it will be  a ‘surprise’ and no doubt posed in Western press as a pre-planned ‘act of treachery’ by the ‘Perennially evil Putin’ in the next gambit of the ‘Great Game’ by empire (NATO.)

NATO actually doesn’t give a rats ass for Ukraine other than to use the dumber than f**k nazis (they’d put in charge in the 2014 coup) as cannon fodder to injure & make Russia into a boogeyman. Götterdämmerung? Well, the Western states running with a 19th Century empire mentality in a highly unstable 21st Century always poses the possibility but probably not (yet.) The European NATO states are in no shape to take on Russia, never-minding Russia has no inclination to reoccupy Europe. Of course, as well Russia cannot stand by and allow Kiev to run over the ethnic Russian majority East of the Dnieper river and open to NATO a corridor on the border of Russia’s European heartland. Russia WILL defend the Donbass.

Everyone knows (West & East) that Ukraine is not a viable state as constituted; the Western (Ruthenian) people (especially along the border with Poland) have been long subverted away from their Orthodox roots and are unrecognizable as the same ethnic people (Rusyn) in Belarus, Hungary, Serbia and trans-Carpathia in Ukraine. These people (Ruthenian-Rusyn) have been targeted by cultural subversion for a couple of hundred years in Catholic associated empire (Habsburg, et al) efforts to wrest their identity away from Kievian Rus and ethnic/cultural kinship with Russia. There is  really little new in this; a historical inheritance predating the Nazi proper invasion and predating Napoleon’s invasion of Russia back to the Swedish invasion at the beginning of the 18th Century. Western empire in several incarnations have coveted Russia for over three centuries, and the Western Ukrainians (ethnic Ruthenians, actually) would be naturally aligned with the Polish who’d Catholicized them and it should come as little surprise these people sided with the Nazis (proper) in WWII because they cannot be rehabilitated in any sense of coexistence with Russia and Russians.

It is in the region of the Polish border where the Ukrainian (Nazi collaborator) Stephan Bandera nazi element/legacy is absolutely entrenched (formerly Orthodox but now ‘Eastern Rite’ Catholics answering to Rome), a community deeply saturated with antipathy to Russia and these ‘people’ (if they can recalled that) will never integrate to a Ukraine of the East with its majority ethnic Russian (Orthodox) population. Both sides (NATO/Russia) know this.

Rather than negotiate a reasonable divorce that would split Ukraine into two states with the Dnieper River as the rough boundary (Kiev and Odessa should be in the East) along ethnic lines, NATO simply intends the inevitable Ukraine breakup will happen in such a way as to make Russia into the Western Press’ boogeyman.

I doubt it’s going to lead to WWIII, Europe isn’t ready for this war, it’ll likely just work out as an expensive exercise to make Russia into the villain, little more than that. How much territory Russia will take will depend on kinetic developments to some extent… but I expect Kiev and Odessa could easily be annexed to Russia (perhaps later divided between Russia and a ‘proper’ Ukraine.) There’s possibility of a triple partition; in general terms an ethnic Ruthenian Western (Poland border area) ‘nazified’ sector nobody will want, a central sector populated in majority by proper ethnic Ukrainians and East of the Dnieper which is largely ethnic Russian majority.

The nazis (literally represented in Azov Battalion et al) will begin their offensive and the Russian army will outflank the Donbass front and cut off the Ukrainian supply lines (taking Kiev in the process) and NATO, after having pumped in enough weapons and munitions to insure a bloodbath, will allow the Ukrainian military to be crushed. This will be the West’s convenient means of disposing of the most radical (out of the closet) nazis, a big no-no (the 21st Century’s nazi meme in the guise of NATO disallows flying any flag except the false flag of democracy.)

No matter the immense amount of casualties this will cause, ‘the more blood the better’ from the Western intelligence agencies propaganda apparatchiks point of view as the entire Western world is propagandized concerning ‘Evil Putin’ and ‘crude Russian aggression.’ Thus, the de facto split of Ukraine is accomplished in a comic strip written by Satan where Western Ukraine (what Russia won’t care to absorb) will be propped up by the West with psychologically infantile territorial claim over a Russian population they had terrorized since February 2014.

Russia will be compelled to defend the Donbass, but for appearances (international law) sake, will have to let the nazis initiate the war, resulting in much higher casualties. ‘Preemptive War’ is an international law oxymoron embraced solely by lawless regimes and adhering to the law is a disadvantage Russia will overcome in it’s impatience that finally decides the most economical means of settling the issue is to evict the nazis altogether from territory East of the Dnieper. Of course the West’s propagandists will take this opportunity to convince its gullible populations ‘Russia’s aggression’ justifies immense, new and limitless armaments purchases in a spiraling out of control geopolitical tension that must inevitably lead to the West’s Götterdämmerung after all.
