Omicron Prompts Rethink of Vaccine Impact, COVID-19 Mandates
The Omicron wave is exposing the limits of Covid restrictions, which are clearly failing. These include ferociously debated vaccine passports and masking policies that have done little, if anything, to tame skyrocketing numbers throttling the Northeast.

Energy

Fire at ExxonMobile Refinery in Houston
A “major industrial accident” at ExxonMobil’s Baytown, Texas, plant near Houston may have resulted in four injuries, the Harris County sheriff said on Twitter early Friday. Products for electric vehicles, more threatened.

Health

Flu Cases Rise
The U.S. flu season has officially begun: Hospitalizations are rising and two child deaths have been reported.

 

NIH Director Francis Collins Shut Down Covid Dialogue Between Scientists
This week, emails released through a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the American Institute for Economic Research revealed what I see as worrisome communication between Francis Collins, Anthony Fauci, and others within the National Institutes of Health in the fall of 2020. At issue was the Great Barrington Declaration.

 

Pfizer-funded Talks Trashed Rival Vaccines With Untruths, According to Experts
Pfizer Inc. funded presentations to Canadian health professionals earlier this year that claimed rival COVID-19 vaccines could cause cancer and were inappropriate for immunocompromised people — claims that experts say were not true.

 

Unvaccinated Should Be Lower Priority to Receive COVID Treatment, MSNBC Doctor Says
MSNBC medical analyst Dr. Vin Gupta has said “negative incentives” should be considered to battle the Omicron surge—such as putting people who have chosen not to be vaccinated at the back of the line for treatment if they get seriously ill.

 

Omicron Bypasses Pfizer Vaccine
The emergence of Omicron, first identified in Botswana and South Africa, may compromise vaccine effectiveness and lead to re-infections1. We investigated whether Omicron escapes antibody neutralization in South Africans vaccinated with Pfizer.

 

Is the CCP Orchestrating Omicron Lockdowns?
Cities across the world are now undergoing a new wave of lockdowns due to the coronavirus. But are these new—and in some cases draconian—lockdown policies actually a result of the Chinese regime using its network of communist parties, politicians, and scientists to orchestrate the whole thing?

 

Lab Partners With Bill Gates on Vaccine Distribution
In order to investigate the effects of different approaches of the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, the MOBS team was asked by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to compare two allocation strategies. In the Uncooperative allocation scenario, the first 2 billion doses of the vaccine are monopolized by the top 50 or so wealthiest countries, whereas the Cooperative allocation scenario assumes that the vaccine supplies are distributed to countries proportional to their population.

 

Fauci Others Charged with Crimes
In a stunning 46-page legal filing to the International Criminal Court on December 6, an intrepid attorney and seven applicants accused Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak, Melinda Gates, William Gates III, and twelve others of numerous violations of the Nuremberg Code. These included various crimes against humanity and war crimes as defined by the Rome Statutes, Articles 6, 7, 8, 15, 21, and 53.

    100% vaccinated US warships getting swamped with Covid cases

    Last month, Fauci went on a New York Times podcast and publicly admitted that the effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine is decreasing in order to push the booster shot.

    “They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly,” Fauci said. “It’s waning to the point that you’re seeing more and more people getting breakthrough infections, and more and more of those people who are getting breakthrough infections are winding up in the hospital.” He said on the podcast.

    Now, it has been reported that on a fully vaccinated warship in the United States Navy, 25 percent of sailors on board have tested positive for Covid-19.  The USS Milwaukee has a crew of a little over 100, and was forced to pause its deployment to the US Southern Command region after the coronavirus outbreak.

    Earlier this month, another warship, the USS Halsey, had to pause its movement out to sea after roughly a third of its 300 member crew tested positive for Covid-19.  The crew of the USS Halsey is also 100% vaccinated, and the Navy reports that its overall vaccination rate sits at around 98%.

    Saad B Omer Twitter, related isolation and negative test requirement

     

    I apologize for the repeat post, this was posted under yesterday's daily update, just bumping it up for your attention. Thank you everyone, have a great day.

     

    If you get a chance, please read through this Twitter thread, is this what mass psychosis looks like? Saddening. Most seems to be good folks, over anxious, worried, some are blantantly blaming 39 % not being vaccinated!! Few seems to be ill and not able to find test kits, few want to test daily while few are telling them to stay home and not leave until they feel better. Mention of any positiveness, omicron being mild, substantially lesser death rate, vaccination related mutation, endemic possibility, early treatment, no where to be found. Found out of place (got forwarded by an avid vaccination proponent) so just wanted to rant and share and see what others think of this.

     

    Thank you for listening. Good night.

     

    Saad B. Omer on Twitter: "Ending isolation of COVID cases in five days without testing negative is the nose-out-of-mask of COVID-19 policies." / Twitter

    The infected "Zoom class" as a game changer

    https://brownstone.org/articles/the-zoom-class-gets-covid/

    ... it all happened seemingly in an instant. We all had to figure out whether our job qualified and what we should do. More striking at the time was the very notion that government bureaucrats could slice and dice the population this way, deciding what can open and what cannot, who must work and who must not, what we can and cannot do based on our station in life.

    So it now seems obvious to me. This whole disaster would finally come to an end (or at least the end would begin) when it became obvious that the great strategy of class division and demarcation would fail to protect the Zoom class from infection.

    That day has finally arrived, with cases soaring in many parts of the country and hitting everyone of every class, whether they are being “careful” and adhering to the “mitigation measures” or not. What’s even more striking is how even the vaccines, which were supposed to codify the wisdom of class segregation, have not protected against infection. ...

    Omicron in the Unvaxxed?

    Hello-

    Does anyone have any data on how the unvaccinated fare with the Omicron variant? Of course MSM reports are it’s “mild” in the boosted  and vaxxed. My son who is a teen has it and had a slight temperature of 99.3, runny nose, and some congestion 2-3 days. I gave him all the recommended vitamins (D, C, zinc, Quercetin, aspirin, Zyrtec) and his terrain was prepared. He is doing well. Trying to prepare myself for what may come in our household.

    Re Idiot Gupta and those with same think

    "move unvaccicated to back of the line"  Really?  What for?   We call this discrimination in the US and you can be sued and it is also considered malpractice.    Based on coecion of an experimental medical procedure. These idiots really think this is some effective , safe , guaranteed cure.

    my questions to you doctor gupta.    Why do the vaccinated need to be prioritized?  Does the vaccine protect them?  why do they need covid treatment? and why so many that there is no staff, facility , medications left to treat unvaccinated?

    Your comparison to placing a smoker on liver or lung transplant.  These people have chosen a habitual behavior that is destructive to the organ ( no one, is arguing that the disease is self-induced )  and there is a finite number of organs available,  and backlogs of those who need.

    With Covid  , it is not self-induced disease ( whether you think the medicine stops it or not , a person has a right to refuse treatment - there is difference between doing something that intentionally harms you and not doing something which "may" protect you. )

    Do we send HIV people to the back of the line because they are gay?  and only treat hetero with HIV?  do we tell people that have drug and alcohol abuse to go to the back of the line for therapies?  no, there is plenty of rehab that costs medicine in this country lots.    These people are not pushed back , except when resources are finite only on something that is agreed , that is a less productive effort with organ transplant success.   You would have to prove that offering unvaccinated treatment , would be less successful on them and essentially wasted.    Dr Gupta, you have drawn some very very faulty logic and comparisons.

    Points where I may agree with gupta.  Yes, if you are an idiot enough to believe the vaccine is a viable treatment for the illness,  then why give more treatment to someone who has already refused the best treatment you have.     Which leads me to the next question for the unvaccinated.  If you chose to be unvaccinated, why do you want treatment from the people who are offering bad and negative therapy ? you wouldnt. and most don't want their treatment , so no loss.   However, where I have the issue and this is the only real issue.   Is if you get in a traffic accident and are bleeding out and you are unvaccinated, are you going to be left to die for something trivial because doctors have such a hate mentality?  My guess is yes this will happen and is happening.

    Time for a touchdown dance? In your face, bad cat style! 😊

    https://boriquagato.substack.com/p/the-financial-press-is-starting-to

    .... the smart rats jumped ship weeks and months ago. the savvy ones are getting off as fast as they can right now and rummaging around for the raiments of reasonableness in which to cloak themselves and pretend where always their first choice of fashion.

    so drop the black pills and get in for the win.

    the instant it seems safe to call all this bunkum and demand life back, the entire middle will rise because no one wants this anymore apart from the 20% that love fascism and authoritarian neuroses cures.

    the same impulse to “go along to get along” will pivot like a weathervane and start blowing due “freedom” any minute now.

    i don’t break this meme out often and obviously, hubris always carries the risk of awakening nemesis, but, amma risk it:

    after a game this savage, we could all use a little touchdown dance.

    Replying to Omicron in the Unvaxxed? (#5)

    Some info here:

    In terms of Omicron, we are not seeing data or evidence to conclude that natural immunity has been breached. In fact, we believe, unless we are shown otherwise, that natural immunity has indeed held and worked marvelously. Based on the reported symptoms and sequelae, it can be considered an immune “rechallenge” and not a bona fide reinfection.

    (article author goes on to quote Dr Van den Bossche:)

    “The innate immunity and thus innate antibodies, get ‘trained’ and ‘learn’ with re-exposures. Innate Abs have broad coverage and the innate immune cells secreting those adapt to the different stimuli to which the host get exposed. Repeated exposure during a pandemic will, therefore, result in enhanced training of innate IgM-secreting B cells. This builds the basis for a broadly protective first line of immune defense that is able to deal with all kinds of different variants. This protection is likely to be the key pillar of protection, especially during a pandemic of continuously evolving more infectious variants.

    In case of highly infectious variants (such as Omicron), the first line of immune defense (innate Abs) may not succeed in capturing all of the virions rapidly enough to prevent viral entry into the cell (as the latter occurs in a very effective way: that’s per definition the case with highly infectious variants). So, innate immunity is taking care of the peak of viral load. Hence, even in cases where the virus breaks through the innate immune defense, the course of the disease is mild as acquired, highly specific Abs arrive in time to abrogate the infection caused by that specific variant.”

    How Likely Is Reinfection Following Covid Recovery?

    I hope he is right, though countries like Canada and Oz/NZ have drunk the Kool-aid so deeply that for them, waking up would be like being told God Is Dead.

    LOTS of COVID cases last night

    I worked the last 2 nights in a small rural ED in the Appalachian area of Virginia.  A couple of observations.

    1.  There were a LOT OF COVID cases in the ED last night!  I saw 8 cases in 4 hours.    One was seriously sick due to Type 1 Diabetes and uncontrolled blood sugar, dehydration.  He was easily treated though.  Most had a flu like illness and felt truly miserable with aching and headache.  The number one chief complaint of the COVID cases was "I feel like sh*t!"  All sent home.   And all appreciated my efforts to start a maximum early self treatment program.  The nursing staff has graciously reached a consensus to "not see" when I do "crazy stuff" for COVID patients, as long as they continue to feel that no harm is being done.

    2.  Our regional hospital system is indeed terribly overwhelmed.  This is due to lack of nursing staff to staff the physical beds in the tertiary care centers where we send the sickest people.

    3.   Every hospital in central and southwest Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee is packed, has no beds available, and the ERs "look like war-zones."  People who should be in the ICU are lying in the hallways of the ED unable to be admitted.  There, they getting dialysis, deep sedation for ventilator care, getting norepinephrine infusions for sepsis and hypotension.  Stuff that should be in the ICU with 1 to 1 nursing care are lying in ED hallways with only occasional checks by a passing nurse or doctor.

    MOST OF THE OVERLOAD is not COVID, but routine medical stuff.  (Sorry, can't give a specific percentage.)

    -----

    Why?

    Nurses quit after complaining that they are being treated badly.  True.

    Doctor's complain that they are being treated badly.  Also true.

    Hospitals complain that they cannot staff laboratories and operating rooms fully.  Also true.

    What seems to tie all this together is the rise of "private equity" buying up medical facilities, physician groups, pharmacy groups and hospital systems and running them as for-profit industries whose primary purposed is to reimburse the shareholders.

    The goal of increasing profits has overshadowed all other goals in this structure.

    ----

    And there are a hundred other contributing factors, too many to go into.  Many are centered on the needs to prove quality metrics and supporting the infrastructure required to do these hundreds of "proof of quality" tasks.

    I am hearing the same thing - not just in health care - but everywhere. Corporatism and "money making" have become the driving force for everything, everywhere. It is now the dominant societal "value."

    And, as a result, the entire system is imploding.

    not many can do this

    I think its awesome how you have developed your own protocol (based on the data we've uncovered here) that will evade the tyrannical scrutiny of the medico-fascist axis of control, while still putting your patients first.  All while making sure to "first, do no harm."

    I myself got some elements of the Sand Puppy Protocol "just in case."

    And it is guaranteed that your patients appreciate being given early treatment.

    How sucky must it be to be told: "No Treatments For You!" by a doctor?

    It is a very tough thing to go against the narrative.  Especially with everyone watching.   Not many can do this.

    Is anyone else starting to get really angry?

    I was angry as soon as the pandemic started to be politicized, profitized, etc.

    But in the past few days, I have started to get really fed up.

    It has been obvious that our "leaders" are corrupt and incompetent. But now it is descending into a tragic-comedy of institutionalized buffoonery.

    And we haven't even hit the real issues of financial collapse and resource depletion.

    I am just really getting fed up with the entire farce. I want these idiots to step out of the way and allow good minds to start working on the best solutions available.

    reply to mike from joisey

    i get your anger. it is totally justified but the words "incompetent, buffoonery, idiots and farce" belies a very serious misapprehension.

    none of these people are "idiots, or incompetent" nor is there any evidence of "buffoonery" or this being a "farce"

    this is a well planned (far in advance), well executed and extremely well funded operation being carried out by very intelligent people.

    the problem is your perspective. you are looking at this from the bottom up. try shifting you view to the top down.

    the people executing this operation don't give a shit about you or anyone else on the bottom. there only concern is that you are a docile farm animal from whom they can extract value. clearly the farm has now run into the problem of too many animals in relation to value received. thus as any good farmer would do for the good of the herd and the farm the culling must take place. of course profit at the sale barn is of utmost importance.

    accident, coincidence or enemy action. take your pick. your choice determines your actions

    With you, Mike

    Last few days I have (on social media) started openly calling for "Dr. Grauchi" to be indicted for lying to Congress.  Once he starts to chirp, lots of other birds will end up in deep deep yogurt.

    The fact that the social mediaverse hasn't booted me makes me think they're starting to hedge their bets.

    People are indeed waking up.  Including the fully-vaxxed who are still coming down with COVID and thinking "WTF is the damn plan here?"

    Biden basically peacing-out and bailing on the whole thing ("There is no solution to COVID at the Federal level"...drops mic...climbs in helicopter to go party out the year at his Delaware beach house) is also telling.  He basically ran on "Trump has screwed up the response to COVID."  And now he's spent a year mismanaging it himself.

    There's something to piss everybody off, however they identify politically (or scientifically or whatever)...

    I'm out there fanning flames and trying to spark minds into questioning the narrative.  It's actually starting to work!

    Joe,

    You wrote:

    I agree that a lot of this was planned and I agree that there is a lot of money behind it. But I disagree that these people are intelligent.

    As SagerXX notes:

    People are indeed waking up.  Including the fully-vaxxed who are still coming down with COVID and thinking "WTF is the damn plan here?"

    The only plan is large scale looting operation.

    And people are started to understand that.

    The continued buffoonery is the metaphoric equivalent of searching for gasoline leak with a lighted match.

    Yes, if you are intelligent about looting - you don't put it right out there on a website that:

    "You will own nothing and you will be happy."

    That is the action of a privileged, out-of-touch autocrat.

    It is not the act of a genius.

    A meditation time: Letter from Charles Eisenstein <3

    Charles some how comes through the morass of conflict and struggles to find a way to be that is above (or beneath) it all.  His writing is good for my soul.  It helps pull me back from the fighting for righteousness that I fall into so easily.

    Will post a few excerpts.

    I began 2021 with a declaration that I was going to turn away from writing essays.....   I noted a congealing of the body politic into mutually non-communicating reality bubbles. When there is no agreement about what is a valid source of fact, persuasion cannot bridge the divide. Besides, as the saying goes, you cannot reason someone out of a belief they didn’t reason themselves into to begin with.

    First, I had hit a wall of despair.  [SK--  comfortable and open with his shadow.]   I have been writing about the Technological Program of control and its political dimensions at least since The Ascent of Humanity, which I wrote from 2003-2006. That book even has a section entitled “The War on Germs.” It seemed to me that my life’s work was an abject failure that did nothing to stop the calamity. To continue writing that sort of thing seemed at the time about as useful as unfolding a parasol against a hurricane.

    A second hidden motive was fear. I sensed danger: the danger of the mob, mass formation, totalitarianism. An instinct told me to keep my head down....

    However, after some months of despondency and the inner work that accompanies it, I also recognized that the current situation is not [as far gone].....    Those pushing a techno-medical-totalitarian program are nowhere near to consolidating power to the extent of the Soviet Communists, the slave-owning class, the Nazi Party, or the medieval Catholic Church.   Similar forces are at work—dehumanization, scapegoating, ideologies of control—but there is still time to turn the tide. Vocal dissent does not mean certain death.

    ......I resumed speaking out against Covid orthodoxy after a hiatus of half a year.     [But t]he feeling of futility revisits me still. When people send me angry letters privately or denounce me publicly, I feel a pain bigger than the sting of personal rejection. It is the enervating ache of futility.

    I never wanted to take sides, because underneath this all is the ancient pattern of dehumanization, the categorizing of human beings into the good and the bad, the worthy and the unworthy, the deserving and the undeserving, the smart and the dumb, the valid and the deplorable.

    How can I speak out against practices that horrify me without othering those who support those practices?

    How can I affirm the sanity of the countercultural minority who see things as I do, without implying the insanity of those who do not? It is no solution to say something like, “You’ve been wrong and stood by in complicity with policies that have caused huge suffering, but that’s OK because we all make mistakes and God still loves you.’ How patronizing. It reminds me of a bumper sticker:

    “Jesus loves you. Everyone else thinks you’re an asshole.”

    I believe anything I or anyone else creates from that place will help change the psychic ground conditions that tilt the world ever toward inhumanity. Essays, stories, it does not matter. I’ll do both.

    I’m feeling grateful these days for all the beautiful things people create, especially for the artists and musicians. Over the holidays I’ve been listening to my son Philip play the piano, and watching another son, Cary, draw pictures.

    Somehow I know that anyone who does these things is working toward the same world I am. Our opinions on current affairs might be opposite, but both of us are serving life and beauty on earth, demonstrating with our most precious possession—the days of our lives—a common prayer for what the world shall be.

    Joe,

    I disagree.

    These people think that they can "handle" collapse.

    They can't.

    And as the wheels continue to come off, they'll find out that they can't manage the breakdown. It will be chaotic and it will be painful, but it won't go as the autocrats think it will go.

    Joe B

    First off, as a longtimer, it does my heart good to see your formidable and acerbic mind back in action here at PP.

    I tend to think like Mike.  I went to school with some of the people who are on the level of the WEF and the Davos gang.  They come from a class of people whose hereditary wealth and family power lets them skate through life without consequences ever really attaching.  They feel entitled on a level the average Karen could not fathom.  Managing to get born into a family of megarich power-brokers does not make you smart or clever, any more than going to a good school does.  I do believe their ambition is outrunning their cunning even as I type this.

    As always, they will be shielded from the consequences of their crimes and miscalculations.  That's how it's been for most of "civilized" history.  They'll head off to Paraguay or wherever and scheme anew.  Or maybe their plantation will get overrun by whatever local warlord rises if and when the lights go out and their story will end that way.

    I mean, wouldn't it be lovely to call in a drone strike on the armored car they're loading up to hustle off to Paraguay?  Sadly, I am fresh out of drones at the moment.   Maybe a couple hundred ninja assassins might make a dent, but I am sadly also fresh out of ninjas.

    If we put enough of their minions (Grauchi, Schmuckerberg, Daszak, Pharma CEOs, et alia) on trial and strip them of their wealth and fame and reduce them (and their spouses and children) to ignominious penury, that'll at least make people think twice before serving these sh!tty but wealthy people in the future.

    I'm visioning a Great Reset, too.  But it has more to do with laying some lumber on the people who tried to steal the world over the last two years, combined with the dethroning of Woke and a return to the reality of the world as it is (3Es) and the values that necessarily attach to the attempt to leave my kid and his generation a world worth inheriting.

    You may be right.  I may be crazy.  But it just might be a lunatic that's called for.

    May Fortune smile, and VIVA! -- Sager

    That rang so many bells for me. That is exactly what I saw as well. Often these people will actually hire truly talented people. But they, themselves, are both talentless and clueless but endowed with an incredible feeling of entitlement.

    These are the people who are currently running the Western world into the ground.

    replying to SK(#10) and b(#15)

    Why?

    Nurses quit after complaining that they are being treated badly.  True.

    Doctor's complain that they are being treated badly.  Also true.

    Hospitals complain that they cannot staff laboratories and operating rooms fully.  Also true.

    What seems to tie all this together is the rise of "private equity" buying up medical facilities, physician groups, pharmacy groups and hospital systems and running them as for-profit industries whose primary purposed is to reimburse the shareholders.

    Every locale has its own system with warts'n'all. I just wish to say that up here in the TGWN with the vaunted single-payer (ie gov't funded – which becomes defacto manager) the scenarios are not dissimilar. Nurses, physicians, support staff are all treated badly – seconded, mandated to overtime, discarded at a whim, etc. There is much buffoonery – the Peter Principle manifests ubiquitously.

    b (#15) says:

    Practically speaking, I've not been quite sure about the profit-motive being the greatest ill of such systems. I'm not defending it either, but having spent years in and out of "mainstream" healthcare systems as well as alternative health care systems, I could imagine that if one could somehow remove only the profit-motive while leaving every other ill intact, the current mainstream medical system may still be nearly equally dysfunctional.

    A non-profit single-payer system without accountability for gross mismanagement leaves much space for dysfunction 'cause hey "it's close enough for gov't work" and well "I'm gone on my vacation" or "stress leave" or whatever and it must just hold together 'till my pension kicks in – ad nauseum. I do not know the solution except to have personnel not beholden to political imperatives.

    Me too

    I am with you, Sager. What is different this time is the amount of information that we have available to us via the internet, and how quickly it can be shared. They may control the MSM but they do not control all media. "Going viral" is not something they counted on. So when we see tweets like what Dr. Malone has been sending of late, ya, they have no choice but to silence him. He is too over the target, causing more cracks in the dam of lies.

    The lack of widely accessible and shared info was what enabled the globalists to keep going all these decades/generations. Now that the independent alternative media has exposed so much, their nefarious shit is getting a lot of unwanted exposure. Which is yet one more reason for them to do a mass cyber attack - something we need to be prepared for.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I do not think their privileged, pampered existence lends itself well to trench warfare. Their money, jets and yachts will not mean dick all when the 99% are looking for retribution. There will be no place to hide then.

    Agree 10000% with your analysis of our current medical personnel shortage and also the "private equity" comparison...In fact, I've been a RN for 15 years and my hospital just cut our straight night premium by 50% without notifying any staff. So after talking with my immediate manager I requested and was granted a meeting with both my managers, my director and HR advisor where I called them liars, cheats, thieves, having no integrity, politicians and that I trust absolutely nobody within the organization...I was fully expecting to be fired but have not been..At least I have a clear conscious. This is the environment our medical shareholders have created

    two key questions: Why are they doing this NOW? <and> Why are they in such a hurry?

    I watched the video by Money GPS on how China is hoarding grains.

    The two questions I keep coming back to, again and again, are: (1) Why are they (TPTB) doing all this Great Reset b.s. NOW? (2) Why are they in such a hurry?

    They clearly weren't prepared, even though they've been planning Covid/Carbon Credits for decades. It appears they moved up the start date by 2-3 years (SPARS).

    TPTB know something is coming which will threaten their power. They are scared, and desperate. They are willing to sacrifice the public's trust in vaccine safety, in big pharma, in the media, in govt, in media, in the economy, in supply chains, in pensions and entitlements, in big tech, in the medical system, in the big banks, in universities, in corporations, in science, NIH, NIAID, CDC, FDA (IOW anyone who supports the vax narrative).

    TPTB learned something, in 2014 - 2015, that alarmed them, and forced their hand. They decided to accelerate their agenda, even though their lack of preparedness, and their aggressive pace, are putting the whole operation at risk. If we are the proverbial 'frogs in a pot of water', they are cranking up the heat so fast, a significant number of us are getting alarmed. 

    The most likely explanation I've found is that the earth is entering a Grand Solar Minimum, a cooling period, and its happening sooner and faster than they thought when they mapped out Agenda 2030. If the earth is noticeably cooler in 2022, TPTB want to take credit for making that happen. They also know crop yields will go down. They are working quickly to send food to the nations that already have strong totalitarian leaders, and have demonstrated they can crack down on unruly masses (China and Russia). In Western democracies, the masses will have to fend for themselves, as the elites retreat to their well-stocked bunkers.

    TPTP know that previous Grand Solar Minima always have led to famine and civil unrest. They're hoping they can front-run this current one with technocracy, ID2020, trans-humanism, total informational awareness, lockdowns, open-air prisons, tight control of the energy market and the food supply, plus depopulation by injecting people with poison.

    This video is also very helpful, especially the final 30 min.

    Something forced their hand

    I think they wanted to get rid of Trump.  They also saw cracks in the financial edifice.  Without the plandemic or a complete financial crash Trump would have sailed to re-election.  It would have been so lopsided that they couldn't hide their election manipulation.

    An uncontrolled financial collapse would have been too dangerous so it was time to run the plandemic, even though they might have preferred to do it somewhat later.

    The Window Was Closing

    Primary Care_MD,

    Here is a graph of sunspot numbers for the last 13 years. You can see that the data is quite noisy. Even monthly data is quite noisy. Smoothing requires at least 6 months of data to determine a possible trend. As such, recent activity can't confirm nor deny the presence of a Grand Solar Minimum - GSM. It will take time to know.

    https://electroverse.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/wolfjmms-18.png

    If you compare this solar cycle with the beginning of the last solar cycle, you'll see a similar albeit slightly noisier start. The start of the cycle is the best indicator of cycle strength. Based on the start, this cycle just doesn't feel like it will be much different than the last cycle. Were the GSM starting now, this cycle would be less energetic.

    Nevertheless, last cycle's sunspot numbers were significantly lower than any of the 20th century's Modern Maximum solar cycles. TPTB probably are accelerating their plans about climate change so they can claim some success when temperatures return to normal.

    I agree with richcabot that it was more based on cracks in the financial world. We've lived with Keynesian economic theory for about a century. Keynes advocated for government borrowing and spending during recessions ... followed by additional taxes and paying back during good times. The politicians are quick to borrow and spend to secure votes for the next cycle. They are loath to pay back what was borrowed. As such, we're in debt for more than a year's worth of GDP. Not only that, but the rate of borrowing is accelerating.

    They have no plans to ever pay it back. The plan is to default on the debt to start the "Great Reset." At the same time, they will likely increase surveillance while restricting our choices and freedom. Instituting a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) fits perfectly with this scenario. If they do so, what are the chances that they'll allow any competition from unofficial cryptocurrencies?

    The plandemic had a dual purpose. First, with improvements in AI and robotics, there isn't a need for workers like there used to be. Since earth's resources are finite, reducing the amount of "useless eaters" increases the amount of resources available to the private jet leisure-class. Secondly, it was a good excuse to ramp up the MainStream and social media misinformation campaign along with vote-counting machinery to get Trump out of their way.

    I really don't consider Trump to be a savior; however, he was using their tactics against them by borrowing/spending for what he considered to be important. Their window of opportunity was closing. In four years (2024,) the debt will be much higher and more intractable. Global temperatures will likely continue a return to normal (which undermines the AGW hysteria.) Most importantly, they wouldn't have a corrupt, mentally-reduced President who could pave the way for their take-over.

    is there a major solar flare due soon? one theory is that solar flares caused historic pandemics. another major flare while people's immune systems are compromised would do horrific damage; and also damage electrical infrastructure.

    I really don't consider Trump to be a savior.

    I think he had his place in God's scheme but his role is over. his part is one of the sources of the hints of hope I hold on to. there is no way TPTB planned for his participation when he was voted in as president. based on his recent comments about the 'vaccines' though, I feel he's sold out. Narcissism and hubris are his main character traits. his integrity is limited. when TPTB offered him a place at the table, he accepted. (just a guess. nothing more.)

    Blind-spots of the Elites

    Agreed. There is an Achillies heel inherent in being part of the elite class. Your life experiences teach you that all problems can be solved with the application of money/power.  So you are blind-sided when one comes along that is not amenable to such treatment.  Kinda like thinking your big cruise ship can ride out a hurricane because it has always weathered the much smaller storms it encountered before. Those of us who live on smaller boats know better.

    So part of this is hubris, born of being out of touch with reality.

    I see another blind spot, which is the worship of high-tech, combined with a failure to grasp fundamentals of physics especially thermodynamics.  The apparatus of cyber-feudalism requires tremendious amounts of energy to operate and to maintain [look at the power bill for one of Google's compute farms], and as PP's crash course points out, we are running out of useable energy with no replacement in sight. At some point (probably within this century) cyber-feudalism would quite literally run out of gas.

    High-tech (including AI and bio-tech) are fragile flowers blooming atop a vast, complex industrial, economic, and social infrastructure. Rip that infrastructure apart and they will rapidly wither away.  I doubt that any of the elites have attempted to work out in detail how keep those flowers alive with a population not exceeding one billion.

    Machinery (robots, computers, nano-tech fabricators) breaks down and needs repair or replacement.  I have yet to see a man-made machine to match the complexity and longevity of the human body, with its inherent capacity for self repair.  Transhumanists who seek immortality through a robotic body are in for a big shock when it starts falling apart after a decade or so.

    Focus On The Big Picture, Not The AGW Pixel

    Mark Janney,

    I read the article that you linked. That article was published in 2011. Lots of real science has occurred since then and subsequently has been swept under the rug by TPTB. The IPCC has a review cycle once or twice per decade. They review the work performed, evaluate the models for accuracy, and then make changes to the data formats so researchers can try to improve on the accuracy of models. It's a laudable process.

    In 2014 during Assessment Review #5 (AR5) changes were made to allow more solar influences into the models. Prior to that, only Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) was considered. Also, since TSI varies by about 0.1% during the 11 year solar cycle, it was considered a constant by most models. Unfortunately, just using TSI - watts per square meter information ignores the complexity of the sun's emissions. The sun puts out energy over a considerable portion of the frequency spectrum. It also has a solar wind/erupting flares that release molecules and ions. Another major issue is that an active sun produces a stronger magnetosphere which deflects more cosmic rays than a weak magnetosphere does. None of this was considered in models prior to AR5.

    The climate models that I've read about that use the AR5 dataset assign the majority of cause for earth's temperature to solar influences. Carbon dioxide plays a minor role. (Not only that, but because fossil fuels are finite, it's a self-limiting issue.)

    I actually was pleasantly surprised when IPCC announced the results of AR5. It gave me a little faith that these people were actually interested in producing better models. Those hopes were dashed when AR6 was recently released. The mainstream of science (because of funding) has reverted to the inane carbon dioxide is the boogey-man climate models. You have to ask yourself if there are better models, why revert?

    By focusing solely on atmospheric carbon dioxide content, TPTB can blame us for the problem. If you've read AOC's 2030 climate predictions, you'll see this is a real concern. They want us to acquiesce to their mandates. They'll use whatever tools are available to them. When you connect the dots, you see it is a broad-spectrum approach. Vaxx mandates using experimental techniques for a disease that kills less than 0.25% of the population - is just another tool. Locking down the populace and giving us stimmie money - is just another tool (to destroy the economy so they can build back broker.)

    Is the economy healthy? Is inflation rampant? Why not just give people money to sit on their collective butts? Having more money chasing fewer goods has to result in inflation, right? So, if inflation is cruising at 5% - 10% per annum, would you be stupid enough to buy a government bond that yields < 3%? If so, you're guaranteed to lose money. What happens when people figure this out? Bond purchases will decrease causing bond yields to increase. What does that do to overly indebted government's balance sheets? Here's the latest US government debt to the penny:

    https://fiscaldata.treasury.gov/datasets/debt-to-the-penny/debt-to-the-penny

    Record Date
    Debt Held by the Public
    Intragovernmental Holdings
    Total Public Debt Outstanding

    12/28/2021
    $23,011,724,666,665.37
    $6,458,477,106,364.37
    $29,470,201,773,029.74

    For every 1% increase in bond yields, the US government has to pay $294 billion more per year to finance the debt. Think about how negative real interest rates are and how much higher yields would need to be to attract buyers. If a significant portion of tax revenue will be dedicated to financing the debt, other priorities will have to be ignored. Do you think the general population will consider that a positive outcome? Bad economic times are usually a career ender for career politicians. They'll do whatever they can to keep their seats in the power structure. Lying to us is the easiest part of their job - especially when the lapdog MSM (another tool) complicitly regurgitates the lies they are fed.

    Look at the big picture and see how it all fits,

    Grover

    what made them jump the gun?

    Grover, was there a major discovery in the past 10 years which caused astrophysicists to refine their models of global cooling, such that TPTB felt they had to move up their timetable by ~ 3 years? I'm guessing, below, because I just started looking into the Grand Solar Minimum about a month ago.

    I'm not discounting the financial explanation, but I am wondering if there was another, more pressing concern. Because, IMO, TPTP can manage public perceptions of the economy easier than they can manage our perceptions of the weather, or GPS function...

    ....................

     

    Was it Earth’s magnetic pole moving?  

    Earth’s northern magnetic pole is moving quickly away from the Canadian Arctic toward Siberia. This movement has forced NCEI’s scientists to update the World Magnetic Model (WMM) mid-cycle.

    http://www.ncei.noaa.gov/news/world-magnetic-model-out-cycle-release 

    This ^^^ was published in Feb 2019.

    But ... Fraudci told us in Jan 2017 there'd be a plandemic during the incoming Trump administration: 

    https://youtu.be/puqaaeLnEww

     

    Going back further:

    In Mar 2012, NOAA revised their earth magnetic pole shift data to make it look less alarming to the public.

    Pole Shift Data Coverup – 2012

     

    ....................

     

    And, re: the Grand Solar Minimum ... 

    From Valentina Zharkova et al, published Aug 2014:

    The PCs [principal components] predicted for cycle 24 very closely fit (with an accuracy better than 98%) the PCs derived from the SBMF [solar background magnetic field] observations in this cycle. This approach also predicts a strong reduction of the SBMF in cycles 25 and 26 and, thus, a reduction of the resulting solar activity

    https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0004-637X/795/1/46/pdf

    ....................

    More from Dr. Zharkova, published Oct 2015:

    As usual, the understanding of solar activity is tested by the accuracy of its prediction. The records show that solar activity in the current cycle 24 is much lower than in the previous three cycles 21–23 revealing more than a two-year minimum period between cycles 23 and 24. This reduced activity in cycle 24 was very surprising because the previous five cycles were extremely active and sunspot productive forming the Modern Maximum2,3. Although the reduction of solar activity in cycle 24 led some authors to suggest that the Sun is on its way towards the Maunder Minimum of activity9.

    <skip>

    We note, in particular, a decreasing activity for solar cycles 25 and 26 coinciding with the end of the previous 350–400-year grand cycle and then increase of the solar activity again from cycle 27 onwards as the start of a new grand cycle with an unusually weak cycle 30. Hence, cycles 25–27 marks a clear end of the modern grand period that can have significant implications for many aspects of solar activity in human lives including the current debate on climate change.

    sager will this time be different???????????

    i am glad you went to school with the rockefellers, rothschilds, schiffs. etc.

    you ever notice that the family that owned the bank of england, banked the vatican, bankrolled jp morgan et. is nowhere to be found on any list of the wealthiest people. i guess all that inbreeding finally caught up to them. they just pissed away probably trillions, oh well easy come easy go eh?

    the "cabal" as gbruno likes to call them have survived the amerikaan revolution, the french revolution, all the european wars, the russian revolution, ww1 and ww2. the collapse of the soviet union etc etc etc (and profited mightily) but now it is going to be different????????? well okay.

    i like data. or at least some historical precedent to bolster that case. these people are not buffoons. they are not stupid. they are certainly not incompetent. they control the vast majority of the wealth. they hire the best and brightest minds. they use ai. frankly they are 100 moves ahead on the chess board. yet i am being told this time is different. hmmmm.

    i guess the "cabal" is no match for the brain trust of the pp tribe.

    hope springs eternal. maybe this time is different.

    More than a Million views.

    Now why would a dancing T bar video a mere 9 seconds long get a million views, I hear you ask.

    A million people are now aware that the rotational axis of the Earth can flip, not just it's magnetic field.

    But why through 90 degrees and not 180? Perhaps it is because of the lop-sidedness of the central mass.

    Multi-Pronged Attack

    Primary Care_MD wrote:

    Grover, was there a major discovery in the past 10 years which caused astrophysicists to refine their models of global cooling, such that TPTB felt they had to move up their timetable by ~ 3 years? I'm guessing, below, because I just started looking into the Grand Solar Minimum about a month ago.

    I wouldn't say it was a major discovery - more refinement. As you've probably heard from AGW warriors, "97% of climate scientists agree that global warming is caused by humans" and "the science is settled." Their inadequate models continually predicted more warming than what was occurring. Even with NOAA massaging the data as much as they did, they still couldn't hide the results of erroneous predictions.

    The earth has a significant heat capacitance that takes about a century to totally adjust to static conditions. In other words, had the Modern Solar Maximum continued at the same strength of most of the 20th century, we'd still be experiencing warmer temperatures. With the sun's decrease in energy and diminished solar magnetosphere, we're receiving less energy from the sun and more cosmic rays that increase cloud cover and cause siliceous mantle to shed entrained water (causes more volcanic activity.)

    As you noted, earth's magnetic shield is weakening and the poles are going on walk-about. Are we due for a pole flip or is this just an excursion? Again, we don't know until it is done. Since the earth's shield is weakening, we're much more susceptible to solar flares. If a flare like the Carrington Event from 1859 occurred today, it would disrupt much of our modern day electronics. For many on earth, they'd be plunged back into the 1800s within a day.

    If you're just learning about Grand Solar Minima and pole flips, I encourage you to check out https://suspicious0bservers.org/. Ben Davidson runs this site and posts a daily update of space weather, earthquakes, earth weather, and quickly summarizes interesting scientific articles relating to these phenomena. His daily updates are usually 4 - 6 minutes long. It is part of my daily routine.

    Back to what made them jump the gun? Frankly, it is a multi-pronged attack. I'm not sure when it started. I became AWAKE after seeing the response to the 9/11 fiasco. Was that what started it? What about the JFK assassination? How about Woodrow Wilson's inception of the privately-held "Federal Reserve"?

    All of these events (and more) taught the deep state that they can obscure the truth and get away with it. Fauci's gain-of-function chimera virus isn't behaving like they'd like. Even though people are vaxxed, there are still a significant number of breakthrough cases. Most people are no longer on the fence and fall into the vaxxed or unvaxxed forever camp. The lockdowns and mask wearing are losing their appeal for all but the most indoctrinated. The vaxx prong has worn out its welcome and is losing efficacy.

    At the same time, the climate isn't behaving as their models predict. Although memories are generally short-lived, the repeated fearmongering reinforces the message that climate needs to be addressed. When people see that the model's predictions are way off base, they lose faith in what the authorities proclaim. Once they start to question the authorities, where does it stop?

    The finance prong is the most pressing at this time. Because of the rampant inflation we're experiencing ... and because the governments are so deep in debt, bond yields are significantly too low to attract funding. The Federal Reserve has noted that they intend to raise interest rates in 2022 (because the inflation isn't "transitory" like Powell claimed.) Nevertheless, Powell won't raise interest rates more than 1%. Will it be enough? It used to be that Bond Vigilantes kept the Federal Reserve in check. If the vigilantes start bocking and require higher interest rates, the gov't will be screwed. The Federal Reserve will do everything they can to hide the truth and fund the government.

    That may satisfy locals who have no choice but to use the dollar. Those in other countries have a choice and may abandon the sinking dollar ship. If that happens, those in power will definitely lose their positions and may also end up with stretched necks or receivers of other forms of execution.

    What would solve all the finance issues is if they can do a soft-default on the debt by moving to a version of Modern Monetary Theory and instituting a Central Bank Digital Currency. By soft-default, it will be similar to the Biblical Jubilee where all debt is forgiven. It will be appealing to all who are currently in debt (including our country) and will be the bane for all who hold that debt.

    The World Economic Forum (WEF) has 8 predictions for 2030. One of them is that "you will own nothing ... and you'll be happy." All your assets will be taken by the government and you'll rent all you need back from them. The best part is that "you'll be happy." I'm sure the complaint department will be at the bottom of a long, open elevator shaft. Klaus Schwab wants to own the world. He's 84. Can he realistically wait 8 more years for his dream?

    The climate issue and virus issue are pawns they are using to secure funding. That's what I see.

    Israel and UK going for "let's all get Omicron" herd immunity

    ZeroHedge is running an article that reiterates yesterday's story that Israel is "mulling" letting Omicron run its course and getting to herd immunity that way.

    Now, today, Boris Johnson is telling people to get out there and party up on New Years Eve.  Basically telling everybody to go get exposed to Omicron so UK can get to herd immunity -- just not saying it out loud.

    Next up, Dr. Grauchi will do a TikTok where he's moonwalking and telling everybody to go out and have a happy new years eve!

    The turnabout in the narrative is happening with breathtaking swiftness.

    Don't know what to say, man.  My school mates weren't Rothschilds (that I knew of, I'm sure they have lots of cousins and in-laws).  They were far enough up the food chain to move levers at my school.

    I guess where I come down is -- believing in their infallibility or invincibility is just a passive form of surrender.  We might as well not try to do anything if some richy-rich f*cker from deep history is just going to buy everything and MUAHAHAHAAAA rule over everybody.

    I'm walking my path.  I certainly assume you're walking yours, whatever your belief system ultimately calls upon you to do.  Whatever the particulars, my man, you have the good taste to be part of the gang here, and I wish you nothing but success!

    Grover, thank you so much for the very detailed and thoughtful answers to my questions!

    I recently started following Ben Davidson after watching his CIA Adam and Eve story, which, btw, scared the bejeebers out of me. Some say (including Ben, I think) that earth is overdue for another high energy X-class solar flare.

    TPTB don't know about the Carrington Event? 🤷

    I guess they're too busy dreaming up bio-weapons, to inject children with.

    Hey, random thought: what if the Cold War was actually an elaborate hoax, to provide funding, and a cover story, for why TPTB had to build all those underground bunkers, Greenbrier, Mt Weather, Mt Cheyenne? And the real reason is they want a place to hide out, if a 12,000-year-cyclical catastrophe should happen?

    Younger Dryas Occurred ~12K years ago

    Lots of things happen on a mostly-regular basis - like the sun's solar cycle is about 11 years long. Other events occur randomly - like the Carrington Event (CE). For the CE, the earth just happened to be in the right location to get enough brunt from the coronal mass ejection for the mayhem to ensue. The sun produced a large X-Class flare in 2003 that would have been devastating if the earth had gotten in its way.

    The approximately 12,000-year catastrophe cycle may be the result of galactic-scale Parker Spirals. There have been periodic large-scale extinctions that occur on that harmonic. For instance, anyone who has visited the la Brea tar pits has to understand that North America used to have a large number of large mammals. What happened to all of them?

    Mainstream theory proposes that humans (who crossed the Bering-Land-Bridge) wiped out all these animals with their Clovis-point spears. That doesn't make sense to me. We only find archeological evidence of these indigenous people sporadically. Given the large continent and the formidable defenses these animals possessed, it is unlikely that humans were able to kill ALL these creatures. Besides, whatever event wiped out the North American megafauna also wiped out the above-ground-dwelling Clovis people.

    Have you ever considered the remarkable uniformity in certain types of petroglyphs? In the image below, the 2 upper left figures are a high-energy Birkeland Current and its cartoon rendition. The petroglyphs look similar regardless of where they are found in the world. How did the people who created these petroglyphs know what to create? Given the uniformity, it only makes sense that they all experienced similar events or the same large-scale event and were so moved by that event that they took the time to document it on rock faces using primitive tools. (Dating these works of art is difficult.)

    Image of Birkeland Current and Petroglyphs+

    Dr. Anthony Peratt spent his career studying high energy physics including at Los Alamos National Laboratory. While there, a neighbor showed him a picture of a petroglyph. He noted to his neighbor that the petroglyph looked just like Birkeland Currents at various stages of decay. (Auroras are examples of relatively weak Birkeland currents.) Here's a video of Dr. Peratt discussing his discoveries in 2005. It is 1 hour 20 minutes long. (The quality is less than ideal, but the content is fascinating.)

    Peratt and Petroglyphs - YouTube

    Ben Davidson posits that interaction with the galactic-scale Parker Wave induces the sun to produce a micro-nova. This nova releases more energy than the largest flares but doesn't destroy the sun as a byproduct. Plasma released by the sun would then be dispersed spherically and interact with each of the planetary bodies. Once it hit earth's ionosphere, it would channel to the magnetic poles and produce displays 100s of km tall - apparently dancing as it decomposes over several days. (Imagine how powerful those images would appear to primitive people.)

    Along with these colossal images, the earth would be bathed in high-energy radiation. Creatures (including man) who were on the earth's surface would receive enough of a radiation dose to kill them. Only those shielded from this radiation (cave dwellers) would be protected.

    Is that why we have so many large underground facilities? I doubt that is the primary purpose. Nonetheless, if the sun goes through a micro nova, there will be a few hours warning before the plasma brunt hits. If you know of a nearby cave, tunnel, or mine, you could probably shelter there for a few days and may be able to survive the event. I'll be the one sitting on my lawn chair, sipping a Gin and Tonic and enjoying the show.

    Just a thought ...

    I agree about Trump…

    Gregory, 

    I agree with you on your Trump comments. I voted for Trump twice and stand by my votes considering the people he ran against. I was depressed for weeks after “Joe Biden” was declared winner (fraudulently) and Trump was officially cancelled out of the public via MSM cancel tactics.

    I proudly stood with him as he travelled the country this past year at his rallies, listening to and watching every one of them.

    But then I heard a strange interview… one in which he was asked about vaccines and Fauci (if anyone can find this interview and post it that would be amazing 🤩). Trump would not say really anything negative about Fauci, but instead gushed about how well they worked together and he even said Fauci was a “mixed blessing”. The interviewer pressed Trump about why he never fired Fauci…Trump dodged the question. On vaccines, Trump claimed Moderna is quite good and so is Remdesivir!

    I have been out on Trump ever since and pray he won’t run for president, unless his role at this point is to be eliminated in the GOP primaries by Desantis…

    Trump is a business man. Some kind of deal was made, I think about shares of Fauci’s patents, stock shares, who knows….but the man is compromised and no longer is the leader WE all need him today he…

    All that being said? I’d still vote him over literally every known democratic candidate that we have heard may run in 2024.

    Ever read any of Graham Hancock's books? In Fingerprints of the God's he talks alot about the Younger Dryas, and ancient civilizations knowledge of cycles that are measured by movement of stars in the sky. His theory is that some of the megaliths that have been dated around the Younger Dryas reflect these cycles.  And like the petroglyphs you showed, he points out many of these ancient structures have many similarities. I found his books very fascinating.

    sager. hope springs eternal

    well you did not really respond to my post. why is this time going to be different?

    there is a certain group think here which goes like this. because we know what they are up to we can do something about it.

    that is great but after 13 years of hanging around here i have yet to see much of anything being done.

    yes you are walking your path as is everyone else. nothing new there. the path being tread by a lot of folk is coping. there is no solution. so it comes down to guns gold and garden as it has been for as long as chrismartenson.com has been around.

    the hope is that the social fabric remains somewhat intact. if san francisco is any indication that might be a false hope.

    happy new year

    I didn't answer the question, yes.  I'm not saying this time is any different.  I'm saying IF there's a mega-powerful long-running cabal of lever-pulling families running everything, there's really nothing to be done, is there?  You'd have to get maybe 70% of the population to understand and believe in that fact, and then get them to exterminate said families.  Sheeeit, we can't even get half the population to understand these vaccines are bogus.

    So, if your premise is correct, then I don't see what is to be done.  My POV is  -- even if this is true, their ability to manipulate things does not match their desire to manipulate things.  Random factors screw plans up.  Human bloody-mindedness screw plans up.   Plans run afoul of unforeseen events.  The communications revolution that allows them to hypnotize so many people also makes complete control of the flow of information impossible.

    If there was some button I could push to eliminate the socio-psychopaths, I'd push it.  Absent that sort of wish-fulfilment fantasy...I'll be in the garden if anybody needs me.  Or maybe at the range.  Or playing music.  Staying human, I guess, is victory, in such inhumane times.

    What's your plan?  Happy new year!...

    interesting threads

    SagerXX-

    The sense I get is that MM's "plan" is to agitate/ridicule other people until they take direct action.  Presumably on his behalf.

    Fascinating thread on the Solar Minimum.  I've been wondering for quite some time what the ticking clock was all about.  This could well be it.  Armstrong sees a cooling period coming up also.

    Agree about the Bad Orange Man.  Something has happened to him in his year out of power.  He's been neutered somehow.  Of course, he was an existential threat to the Gang in Charge, so its no surprise priority #1 was to get him under control.  It appears to have worked. Maybe they found something on him.  Maybe they manufactured it.  Maybe they've threatened his family.  They aren't playing around.

    Still: Horrible Hillary is the path not taken.  Bullet definitely dodged. I suspect we'd have had Australia-type "camps" (for "public health") if HH (and her cronies) had been in charge for 5 years.

    I still maintain it will be the later-awakened folks who will end up getting really upset.  Look at Robert Malone.  He's a total Pharma/DoD insider, he got two shots, got a vaccine injury, and is now absolutely leading the charge.

    This will happen more and more.  The more people they injure, the more (really angry and determined) opposition they will create.  All on their own.

    I am reminded of my favorite section of the Tao Te Ching (#38):

    https://www.poetseers.org/the-poetseers/lao-tzu/tao-te-ching/verse-38-mitchell/

    The Master does nothing,
    yet he leaves nothing undone.
    The ordinary man is always doing things,
    yet many more are left to be done.

    I believe that letting others know that they are a) not alone, and b) not insane is a huge help.  Once enough people wake up - as a direct result of the damage caused by the Gang in Charge - the problem will effectively solve itself.

    Target the 40%.  They are the swing vote.  Vitamin D is one gateway drug. And now: "if we're all getting omicron, and its mild, why do we still have vaccine mandates?"

    Dr Fauci: I'm like an x-ray. I see right through you...

    Grover,

    I watched the video with Tony Peratt. Fascinating. He seemed passionate, aware that he had made the discovery of a lifetime. Yet, most of us don't know anything about it, or him. Our loss.

    Wikipedia says most of the petroglyphs were made 10-12,000 years ago. Those dim-bulbed spooks go on to say they have absolutely no idea what the drawings could possibly represent.  

      

    I looked up Dr. Peratt on Duck Duck Go and found this article by David Talbott:

    https :// www .thunderbolts.info/wp/2016/04/08/plasma-scientist-anthony-peratt-meets-the-electric-universe/

    For readers like me, who are struggling to undo years of mis-education, here's some context on why petroglyphs are important:

    Earth-shaking electrical activity, recorded on stone around the world and recounted in archetypal myths and symbols, provoked a collective response from ancient people as if their lives depended on it. In fact the lives of millions of people DID depend on their response to these events, since (as Peratt himself acknowledged) the synchrotron radiation would have most likely been deadly. Humans survived by retreating to caves, and in many instances artists in the open would have died without the shielding provided by neighboring cliffs.

    So, cosmic radiation rises as the earths magnetosphere (shield) diminishes. Btw, that's happening again, now. Dr. Peratt showed, convincingly, with his lab work involving plasma physics, that these petroglyphs were ancient representations of a severe geo-magnetic storm (super-charged aurora), which happens 1-2(?) years before the earth's magnetic poles flip.

    For some reason, his important discovery didn't go over well with the establishment and all the scientists they fund. From the same source...

    There is something profoundly unethical and disturbing in the story of colleagues standing by, watching the slanderous treatment of Tony from the sidelines and taking no initiatives to stop the baseless attacks that abruptly terminated his career. In particular, these attacks ended Tony’s systematic, rigorously scientific work to reconstruct earth-altering electrical events in the ancient sky. To hide or to deny this story is to violate every standard of integrity in the sciences.

    Why? Maybe TPTB didn't want us to worry about the end of the world, because then we wouldn't put our money in our 401Ks, and we'd stop working so hard (for their benefit).

    Wait a sec ... isn't global warming supposed to be the end of the world?  Key distinction: They say 'the little people are to blame for global warming, so that's why the little people have to make sacrifices, to save the planet, and so what if those sacrifices also permanently lock-in the existing power structure. Got it? We the people are the problem, the pedophiles and banksters are the solution. We should just take the jab, and be grateful that they care enough about us to continue exploiting our labor, and grinding down our spirit.

    How does this all tie together? Covid, global warming, petroglyphs, plasma physics, cosmology, the hijacking of science to feed the Beast? Do CIA agents hang around Ivy League campuses, looking to recruit smart, ambitious sociopaths? If you're so narcissistic that you can be lured into having sex with a 12 year old, then you can be president (right Bill, Donald?) Pols are impulsive, morally weak, and common. But how rare is it to find someone who's cold-blooded, calculating, immoral, dark, yet very intelligent, ambitious, and high-functioning? Someone who's willing to kill children, in the name of science, to gain wealth and power? If identified early, and groomed properly, this apex predator will spend many years at the top of the visible deep state. Mr. Talbott continues in part II:

    https:// www .thunderbolts.info/wp/2016/04/10/anthony-peratt-part-2-backbone-of-the-sky/

    The events leading to the destruction of plasma scientist Tony Peratt’s career hold a unique message for all of us. Over a lifetime exploring challenges to orthodoxies in the sciences, I have never seen anything like it. And I have seen a lot.

    The story must be told because those complicit in the ending of Peratt’s culminating work are still holding in place a profound deception—a cover story to hide misconduct in the sciences.

     

    Somebody can't handle the truth. It's not us.

    The Lie in Ligo.

    I hold that the aether and the plasma sciences will lead inevitably to our freedom and "Their" total loss of control.

    Of what use is an airport if everybody has an anti-gravity saucer? And what of the Mighty Petro-dollar, when blind Freddy can see that these devises don't fill-er-up at the local gas station?

    There's way too much at stake to release these ideas into the wild.

    Watch to the end of this video where the return of the aether is proposed and a possible gravity aether is posited. The salient point is that the electro-magnetic aether and the gravity aether interact, and you've got, Bingo, Townsend Brown's electro-gravitics. (Admiral Rickover was purported not to be interested in TB's working models. Of cause the navy was disinterested in anti-gravity!!. In 1957 BTW)

    It would be bad for physical metals too. The Diefenbunker outside Ottawa was built partly to hold the nation's gold and keep it safe from radiation. Not that Canada has any now.

    More generally, this theory explains so neatly -- and in a beautifully primitive way -- why TPTB are killing us off gently now -- so there will be less competition to get into the caves. Neaderthal thinking indeed...

    Peratt's Journey

    Primary Care_MD wrote:

    I watched the video with Tony Peratt. Fascinating. He seemed passionate, aware that he had made the discovery of a lifetime. Yet, most of us don't know anything about it, or him. Our loss.

    Wikipedia says most of the petroglyphs were made 10-12,000 years ago. Those dim-bulbed spooks go on to say they have absolutely no idea what the drawings could possibly represent.

    Before I first heard about Peratt's work, I was like the dim-bulbed spooks who couldn't fathom what the drawings represented. If these were the only rock drawings, it would spark some interest in knowing why. Since there are drawings of local animals and also ancient graffiti by blowing pigments over an outstretched hand, it just never occurred to me that it was a natural phenomenon that they were documenting.

    For Dr. Peratt, most of his work was confined to the most powerful machines that humans could devise. Nonetheless, these machines were infinitesimally small compared to the magnetic abilities of the earth. He could only see coarse representations of what was happening in his machines because the energy required to produce these was so deadly.

    Imagine how he felt when he learned about his first petroglyph. These primitive people witnessed what he could only dream about. He understood how deadly this could be, yet people survived long enough to document the event. He did all he could to try to isolate the conditions that allowed people to observe without being consumed.

    What he found repeatedly was that all these particular petroglyphs were in southerly facing canyons that had a protecting south ridge beyond. (That leads me to believe it was all from a singular event where the sun's magnetic pole orientation favored a more profound excitation of the atmosphere above earth's south magnetic pole.) He claims the latitude of the petroglyphs can be determined from the perspective of the drawing. As an example, imagine what the Statue of Liberty would look like if you were looking upward while standing at her feet ... or disembarking off a ship on Ellis Island as you start your journey to become an American ... or from far away. Although each perspective is different, they all are of the same subject.

    I don't remember where the northernmost petroglyph documenting this event exists. I know that it is more than 45° N latitude. In order to see a degrading Birkeland Current over the South Pole from that far north, it had to extend 100s of km above the earth.

    Imagine how these primitive people would react. They didn't even know that fire was the result of an rapid exothermic oxidative consumption of a fuel. They just knew that fire warmed the body, cooked the food, and could turn deadly if left unattended. Wouldn't they ascribe god-like attributes to the forces behind this event? They only had oral traditions to relay important stories. These can become exaggerated as each generation hears the stories and passes on their interpretation of what was significant to remember. Did the stories that eventually were written really describe the events of the day?

    Now, imagine modern-day scientists hearing the same stories. Unless high-energy physics is in their wheelhouse, they won't grasp the significance, nor will their opinions really count for much. Many of these scientists have heard preposterous stories that eventually were proven to be fabrications. It is safe to ignore the stories. Promoting the stories could have deleterious effects when trying to find funding for future research.

    That's what we're seeing in many fields of science today. For instance, how is it that we (on this site) know that having adequate levels of vitamin D3 diminish the effects of a Covid-19 infection? Yet, the mainstream doesn't have a clue. Either that, or they can't afford to publicize their knowledge. Does that make science stronger or weaker? Is it fair to consumers of MainStreamMedia when they hear that vaxxinating with an experimental mRNA concoction is their only hope?

    Science welcomes probing questions and intellectual debates. Scientism (a religious cult of what is sold as science) adheres to dogma and ritual. When you try to unlearn the misinformation that wokesters peddle, keep the questioning in mind. Sure, they'll have pat answers for the insipid questions; however, see what happens when you delve deeper with more probing questions?

    Fascinating!

    From Primary Care_MD Cmt #57:

    So, cosmic radiation rises as the earths magnetosphere (shield) diminishes. Btw, that's happening again, now. Dr. Peratt showed, convincingly, with his lab work involving plasma physics, that these petroglyphs were ancient representations of a severe geo-magnetic storm (super-charged aurora), which happens 1-2(?) years before the earth's magnetic poles flip.

    Grover and Primary Care_MD, the video and your posts about Tony Perrat's petroglyph work are just fascinating.  Thanks for taking us along for the ride!

    Returning The Favor

    Thanks to everyone for all the kind words. I always appreciate when someone on this site presents an interesting subject in such a way that I want to learn more about it. It is such a shame to see posts with just a link to another page or a video. I rarely bother unless someone subsequently piques my curiosity. Tell me how long it will take, explain what makes the time commitment worth the effort, delve into the intricacy enough that I want to take the journey myself. When someone presents a really good write-up, I can't imagine not following the link! I can't describe how special that is. There aren't many things that rival thoughtful contemplation.

    When I saw my first presentation video of Dr. Peratt, I was gobsmacked. I couldn't NOT think about it for days. I generally question everything. (I even question why I question.) When I put myself in the position of the people who carved these representations of such spectacular physical phenomena, I can't help but think that they felt as if they were touched by God. Is this what started (or improved) the myth that has become religion?

    Imagine an enormous ghost-like figure dancing and shifting shapes over time. It remains for a few days and then is gone for the rest of the viewer's life. Shortly thereafter, people, animals, and most vegetation that received enough radiation start dying a horrible death (radiation poisoning) ... yet, you and your small group who sheltered underground were spared. Can you imagine a more profound event for people with their limited knowledge and technology? What conclusions would those primitives draw from this experience?

    Shifting to the modern world, are we really that much different? We may generally have more knowledge and experiences, but aren't we easily swayed by superstition and calls from authority? When was the last time you "knocked on wood?" (Even if it was just a joke.) When was the last time you followed someone in authority simply because they have the yoke and carry it well? Frankly, many in the modern world would respond exactly like these cavemen if that were the only avenue of expression left to them. Think about how you would respond to a massive Birkeland Current event a day before reading this thread.

    Grover - I'm guilty of posting just a link or a sentence so here I go - Overshoot -

    Chris Martenson has done a great job with his crash course.  As he has said many a time, we live on a finite planet with finite resources.  In the crash course Chris rightly states that the next 20 years won't be like the last 20 years.

    I don't know if Chris has read the book  "Overshoot", by  William Canton  or if he is aware of the work of Michael Dowd but they present the information in the crash course  in a little different way.   Dowd believes based on Overshoot, that industrial civilization is in collapse and presents some compelling evidence of this fact.  He states that he was a believer in Green technology - in Techno Optimism saving us until he truly understood what Overshoot is.

    From he cover of the book overshoot: (i added the text in italics)

    Carrying Capacity:  Maximum permanently supportive load.  Ie we live on a finite planet which can support x number of people using y resources.

    Cornucopian myth:  Euphoric belief in limitless resources.  our civilization is based on ever expanding growth

    Cargoism:  Delusion that Technology will always save us.  (or Bill Gates)

    Overshoot:  growth beyond an areas carrying capacity, leading to -

    Crash: Die off (end of industrial civilization)

    "The predicament is that we live actually live in a carrying capacity deficit world"

    Dowd has put together two youtube videos titled: "Overshoot in a nutshell" and "collapse in a nutshell".  The videos are somewhat similar to those in the crash course and contain several interesting graphs.

    One graph in particular is a graph showing carrying capacity as "constant/fixed" (which there is probably some wiggle room - we can eat bugs, the great reset ...) but once the "progress" of society goes beyond the carrying capacity, that the carrying capacity is degraded and thus goes down.  When it goes down for a particular amount of time it enters a downward spiral and can't be stopped.  As Chris has pointed out many times, the solution to this predicament is: fewer people and or people consuming fewer resources.

    "why growth is slow, but collapse is rapid", the Seneca effect

    He defines collapse as a gradual downward trend in biophysical health and wellbeing that goes into unstoppable decline - the great acceleration.  Dowd says that we are in the great acceleration.

    Dowd says most people will deny this (as he did until he fully understood Overshoot) especially those benefiting from the existing order, those legitimately concerned about the consequences of collapse and those who fear that "accepting reality" means giving up.  typical responses are - Technology / science / government /  solar panels, wind mills ... will save us.

    He gives examples of self reinforcing and cascading feedback loops that are now in what he says are unstoppable runaway mode.

    Like Chris does in the chapters of the crash course on the environment - Dowd shows how most of the worlds "life support" systems are crashing.  When you look at graphs of exponential decline - its hard to imagine anything that could stop or slow the decline (but I'm sure the WEF has a few things up their sleeves).  I'm sure there are a few exceptions,  one exception would be global cooling due to the sun's cycles ...  but that still wouldn't fix things.

    Media and big business can't fathom our predicament and will have technological solutions (which predicaments don't have) to safe us.  the irony is that technology is what got us here in the first place.

    As Chris says, after going through COVID you think the Government or corporations can get us through the times ahead  ...

    I recommend checking the two videos mentioned in the beginning because they do a much better job.

    Grover - if you made it this far, thanks for the info on the caves / tunnels.  Good news for me, there is an old mine with its shafts still open less than a mile from me.  Bad news, I'm in my early 60's so if the magnetic field does it thing - I will be enjoying a cocktail on my porch.
