The Quality Of Life In The United States Is Going Down The Toilet

Is the quality of life in America getting better, or is it getting worse?  Americans certainly have a lot more “money” than they did when I was a kid, but that doesn’t mean much because the U.S. dollar has only a fraction of the value that it did back then.  And without a doubt our electronic devices have become much more advanced, but that doesn’t mean that we are happier.  In fact, everywhere I look people seem to be deeply unhappy.

Reddit chief: I was late to spot GameStop stock mania

Reddit boss Steve Huffman has told BBC News he supported the aims of controversial sub-Reddit WallStreetBets.

A long-time fan of the group, he said he had been slow in spotting its effect on GameStop’s huge share-price spike in January. “I was actually a little late to the party, because I didn’t realise that Reddit had leaked into the real world again”, he said.

Stocks & Bonds Hammered As Hindenburg Omen Strikes

Amid the chaotic swings of the last few days, a “Hindenburg Omen” has been triggered in the Nasdaq for the first time since the pre-COVID peak.

While there are slightly different constructions of it, and there is disagreement on what thresholds should be used to trigger an alert, Refinitiv notes that a more stringent construction of the indicator shows a signal popped up Tuesday on the Nasdaq. The last signal developed 12 trading days ahead of the Nasdaq’s Feb. 19, 2020 top and what would then prove to be a 33% swoon in the tech-laden index into its March trough.

How Gold & Silver Will Someday Make a Vacation Home Very Affordable

It’s one of our most popular articles: how much gold and silver will I need to buy a vacation home?

We last looked at these ratios in the summer of 2019, so time for an update.

As you know, gold and silver prices are higher than they were 18 months ago—but so are real estate prices. Partly due to a shift in geographical trends from the pandemic, but mostly a result of extremely low interest rates. Mortgage rates in the US hit an all-time historic low in December, making it easier than ever to finance a home.

The Movie Industry Holds Its Breath As New York Reopens Theaters

Movie theaters in Chicago, Houston, Phoenix and Philadelphia have been open for months. But attendance remains low, not just because of public safety concerns—but because there isn’t much to see. Major studios are delaying their blockbusters, or releasing them straight to streaming.

One big reason? The two biggest movie markets in the country, New York City and Los Angeles, remain closed.

Texas’ oldest, largest power cooperative files for bankruptcy after $2.1B ERCOT bill for winter storm

The largest and oldest electric power cooperative in Texas, Brazos Electric, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The utility company, which serves 16 distribution member co-ops that cater to more than 1.5 million Texans, said it had “no choice” but to file for bankruptcy after accumulating more than $2.1 billion in bills stemming from the Lone Star state’s winter storm last month.

How The White House Got 2 Pharma Rivals To Work Together On COVID-19 Vaccine

President Biden said on Tuesday that a key milestone in the fight against COVID-19 could be reached two months faster than earlier projected. By the end of May, there should be enough vaccine doses for every adult in America, he said — a dramatic improvement to his initial timetable for late July.

A turning point in speeding up that pledge came a few weeks ago, on a Sunday afternoon in early February, during a phone call with Johnson & Johnson executives that had been planned for 15 minutes but stretched for longer than an hour, two senior administration officials told NPR.

How to grow food in a concrete jungle

Urban farms like Agricool are part of a broad collection of metropolitan agricultural efforts including everything from vertical farms to greenhouses to aquaponics to community gardens. The idea of cultivating food in or near cities is not new (see the victory gardens of both world wars, for example), but these ventures have become increasingly popular in recent years as the local food movement strengthens. After the rise of the supermarkets led many people to feel disconnected from food production, consumers are again paying more attention to how and where their food is grown, along with how far ingredients must travel between field and plate.

    George Orwell

    "We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right.  Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield."

    Is that where we are headed?

    I dont think we are headed for war

    No, I'd be surprised. The corona virus hoax has proved now beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is a one world system. They are all in on it together. Look at the inconsistencies, look at the lock-step coordination of false narratives.

    If we had real countries with independent leaderships, you'd see responses that were all over the board. Some countries would be treating with HCQ, Ivermectin, vitamins, etc,etc  Others would be insisting on the vaccination.

    Some countries would require masks [ which Fauci admitted do nothing ], some wouldnt. Some would require social distancing, others would say we have to let the virus run its course to gain herd immunity. You could never have an entire world coordinating, especially in the adoption of policies that we all know dont work.

    The ONLY way that this world-wide outcome is even possible is if the entire world is under one worldwide leadership. What we are seeing can only be achieved by a top-down chain of command, and the power of the controllers is near absolute. No countries dare buck the official narratives? No countries create their own protocols? No countries look at their crumbling economies and say "enough"? No. That would literally be impossible if there really were separate countries.

    The only way we will see war is if the one world controllers decide to thin the herd. In such a case the leadership of both sides would be following orders from the same commander.

    first world pandemic stupidity

    Yes, I concur on the world-wide outcome.  It is really clear.

    Whoever currently has the power behind the scenes is now really exercising it for all they're worth.

    The uniformity of response to this pandemic is shocking in its lock-step-stupidity.  The richer the country, the stupider the policy.  Its straight out of a movie.  "Yes.  I will put my hand into the blender.  Repeatedly.  See how well this works?"  No treatments for you.

    My friends in the third world have treatments at the government hospital that clears this virus in 3 days in 95% of patients.  The population doesn't know this - the population remains terrified because they see the utter failure of the United States, the UK, and Europe to treat this disease - I'm guessing their "third world" doctors are too smart to tell anyone the details about this treatment, but case fatality rate in this nation is 0.3%.  Just about nobody dies.

    The third-world doctors are wise to keep quiet.  If they shut their mouths, they can quietly save the lives of their countrymen without the Reset Gang coming down on them like a ton of bricks.

    The Donor Class speaks with one voice, pays to "elect" a mummy as "President" - who now isn't allowed to give press conferences, won't call foreign leaders, can barely stumble his way through a Zoom call, asks "am I supposed to be answering questions now?" when its over, and certainly won't be giving a State of the Union address.  Capitol protected by fencing and razor wire, the protest of the Donor-purchased fraudulent election is called an "armed insurrection" (even though the only people who died during this "insurrection" were protesters - no arms were found), would-be protesters are warned that they'll be labeled "domestic terrorists" complete with no-fly lists and re-education camps, and now there's the creation of a Praetorian Guard, under the command of ... someone they hope will be really crucial to power transition events.

    The Reset Gang (I'm calling them that, for lack of a better term) are putting all their marbles into this game.  I do not think it will work - there aren't that many of them, there are a whole lot of us, and once we decide this isn't the outcome we want, it will be over with very, very quickly.

    We just have to be able to see through the stupid stories they've cooked up to divide us; once the Bernie Bros and the Deplorables figure out just how much we all have in common, it will literally be over with in seconds.

    The Reset Gang knows this.  They are terrified as a result.  That's the real reason there is razor wire surrounding the Capitol.  I mean, it won't be enough.  Once the "red vs blue" construct disintegrates, I mean.

    It might take a few years for this to play out, however.  Everyone will wake up in their own time, and in their own way.

    What scares me is that I've seen enough to know this is true and yet I'm aware how "batshit crazy" it would sound to people here who read the papers and therefore consider themselves informed.

     

    They would be right to ask, "Then why hell aren't I hearing about these miracle treatments you keep talking about?"   Most won't ask that because they can sense what the answer must be and what the answer means.  They just don't want to deal with it.

    I read on the CBC site this morning that a health official (Ontario) is publicly worrying now about a third wave.   I went straight over to the dentist right after that and the hygienist informs me that a third wave is unfortunately looking likely.

    Canada just approved the J&J vaccine which will be my go to when it becomes illegal to not have big pharma chemicals in your system.   But the papers are already warning about how irresponsible it would be to try to choose your own vaccine.   These are not people willing to meet you even three quarters of the way.  You will do *exactly* as you are told.

    Fractured control systems

    No,

    The world is moving towards multi-polarity and is more fractious politically than ever before, both within nations and between the major powers.

    Look at the manufacturing data coming out and it is quite evident. Follow the money.

    There is no "moving in lockstep" with regards attitude and perception of the virus and vaccines and the virus.

    There is turmoil in the general population as people try to figure out who to trust, in terms of expertise. This is not a lockstep reaction, happening in an information vacuum.

    and yet

    The world is moving towards multi-polarity and is more fractious politically than ever before, both within nations and between the major powers.

    And yet, we all handle the pandemic using lockdowns.  (Lockdowns don't work).  And we get to wear two masks.  (That - largely - don't work; "symbolic agency", no more.)  And "no treatments for you."  (Even though we have treatments that work).

    There are cosmetic differences, but an essential sameness to the absolute medical incompetence which would be utterly impossible in a rational world absent some sort of overarching organization running things from the back room.

    I'll do "hard" and "easy" once more.

    "Choosing your vaccine" = hard.

    "Getting ivermectin as a treatment" = hard.

    "Avoiding 'vaccination' while still remaining a first-class citizen" = hard, and getting harder.

    "Wearing two masks" = easy!

    "Locking down" = easy!

    "Studiously avoiding disinformation" = easy!

    "Not sending your kids to school" = easy!

    True across the first world.  Odd how "same" everything looks, yes?

    J&J Vaccine

    Wotthecurtains, you said: "Canada just approved the J&J vaccine which will be my go to when it becomes illegal to not have big pharma chemicals in your system."

    J&J is a more traditional vaccine.  It's attenuated.  That means there is a shit load of nasty stuff in it, capable of creating a wide range of autoimmune issues.  Plus this is a coronavirus vaccine and we've never been able to pull that off before. 

    I don't see any sane vaccine choice yet.  There may not be one.

    Choosing a vaccine

    wotthecurtains wrote, "But the papers are already warning about how irresponsible it would be to try to choose your own vaccine."

    In Australia the Feds have sent large amounts of money to Pfizer and AstraZeneca, and we may choose one of those. It is not (yet) mandatory to accept either. We have a constant media barrage about how safe and effective these vaccines are, with the subtext that anyone who is dubious is morally and ethically deficient and defective.

    Reminds me a bit of elections in the Soviet Union: voters could choose among several candidates, but they all represented the same party.

    Possible vaccine enforcement mechanisms

    This is about how gun bans could be enforced, but it would work to enforce vaccinations too. No?

    Frightening Uniformity

    Dave, I completely agree that the lockstep reaction to the Corona virus across the entire 'first world' is essentially proof that there is, as you say an 'overarching organization '  running things.

    My observation is that this is an entirely top-down reaction to the virus. In fact, if it wasn't for the over-reaction by the authorities, most people wouldn't even be aware that there is a 'pandemic'.

    There can be no doubt that much more damage has been done by government overreach than by the virus itself.

    But what frightens me the most is the bovine acceptance of masks, distancing and lockdowns by the vast majority of the sheeple. They are terrified of something they have not seen or experienced. Unquestioning obedience to government diktat. It does not bode well for the future.

    Thats the part that amazes me since we have just gone through a period of established and very public media/government lies. They were LITERALLY caught lying over and over. Its almost as if they intentionally did everything they could to destroy their credibility just before covid hit. And even after it hit the lies and contradictions were almost too blatant to pass the smell test for me;

    "Masks dont work" "masks are symbolic" "you must wear masks" "you must wear multiple masks" "HCQ is promising" "HCQ will kill you" "2 weeks to flatten the curve" "we have to reach herd immunity" "the vaccine is the only answer"

    Fauci has contradicted everything that ever came out of his mouth. There's something about these contradictions, I cant put my finger on it, but it seems intentional.

    At the same time you have these masses of people just contorting themselves into whatever position the government takes this week.  The fact that last week was a completely different story seems to get blocked out of their mind. The whole thing is very surreal.

    It seems like we are watching some sort of mass hypnosis. Has a very strange psy-op type of feel.

    kamala harris was hand picked , groomed and promoted by silicon valley.

    the full force of tech will be applied to carry out the bill gates agenda.

    there will be a plethora of "soft" measures. i suggest everyone watch the glenn beck video. the first method is suggest "soft' then shove, then shoot.

    soft measures will be employed by our corporate masters first. "you want to fly?" okay let me see your vax passport. you want to go to school? okay let me see your vax passport. then of course if the government can mandate masks and fine you for not wearing one $500 where i live. it is no great leap to fine you for not getting vaxxed. you want food stamps? medicare? medicaid?  you know how they got the 55mph speed limit? they said fine you don't have to change your state's speed limit you just won't get federal funds for your roads. everyone will have an esg score . low score? no mortgage, car loan etc. remember the fine for not buying aca health insurance? the supreme court ruled it wasn't a fine it was a tax therefore legal.

    of course now you could be deemed a domestic terrorist and a threat to national security. obomba signed the 2012 ndaa with sec 1021 that gives the right to the military to arrest anyone anywhere, hold them indefinitely w/o access to a lawyer for any reason whatsoever.

    resistance is futile

    Resistance is not futile. That’s what “they” want us to think.

    MM: I have a bet with a few friends. My money is on July 4, 2021 as the date after which Kween Kamala will be enthroned. At the latest. They do seem to be in a rush. And “all in.” We’ll see.

    New Ivermectin SCIENCE! “research!” article

    No one is talking about the New England Journal of Medicine `ivermectin doesnt work!` publication that came out yesterday.

    Here is the link: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2777389?guestAccessKey=e98010ef-e747-40ad-b865-a18c9c0450d9

    This is another arnticle that proves that ivermectin does not work.
    a. of the patients studied 75 who were given ivermectin were removed from the study.
    b. of the 398 remaining, 2% of the ivermectin group required hospitalization and 5% of the control group required hospitalization (or intervention, whatever that means)  2% of the control group sickenings were remov ed from the study presumably because they went into the hospital too early
    c. the measurement criteria, and the goals of the study were altered AFTER 6 weeks of the study.  (After the study was completed and all data looked at, the parameters for comparing ivermectin with placebo were changed.):
    "the study was not conducted or completed according to the original design, and the original primary outcome to detect the ability of ivermectin to prevent clinical deterioration was changed 6 weeks into the trial. In the study population, the incidence of clinical deterioration was below 3%, making the original planned analysis futile"

    d. this SCIENCE! was done in Columbia, by people who were funded by large US pharmaceutical corporations, which are listed.
    e. some of the original patients for selection were eliminated because they had already been taking ivermectin. Also, the placebo was known to taste differently. Because S Americans often take ivermectin, some patients were even rejected for the study based on prior use, and because of known taste differences, I would not expect the placebo patients to not take ivermectin on their own, in this S American study. There was no guarantee or check of this.

    There is the answer! Big Pharma paid big bucks to get the outcome they wanted. It's the same playbook that big Tobacco used ~half a century ago. That playbook is so successful that it's used by big Money for just about everything in modern society. Whatever the mainstream media wants you to believe ... there's SCIENCE! behind it.

    [Note: "SCIENCE!" is Mots' term for the toilet paper that passes for serious scientific work. It gives the funders a skirt to hide behind if anyone questions them (but don't expect the MSM to question anyone who pays the bills.) Eventually, the toilet tissue gets so thin that everyone can see through it. By then, the funders have already rung the cash register enough to make paying a pittance in fines a justifiable business expense.]

    Do Pavlov's sheeple really care who paid for the food when the bell gets rung? It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. 😉
