Well, within the Germans (at least my generation) this is still alive. We called them Contergan kids. There was even an expression under the kids of my generation that time when you have done something odd or stupid – “are you conti?..”.

Actually, I always refer to this Contergan disaster in my discussions about the current situation with the “expedited” vaxxine. However, I am getting almost always disappointed by whomever I tell this and the people mostly looking at me as I tell stories from behind the moon.

It seems that nobody knows or can remember of this. It seems information overload with spam effectively erases our historical experiences.

    Any of this sound familiar….. “How to Become a Tyrant” (Netflix) episode 4

Netflix has a new series out revealing the playbook of all of our favorite tyrants: how they came to power, how they held onto power and what they used their power for. No one is left out: Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, and many more.

In Episode 4, the show reveals how important it is for every tyrant to “Control The Truth.” Every tyrant does that by:

1. Rewrite history.

2. Censor everything. Sound familiar?

3. Seduce outsiders (to push your narrative). Find and use “useful idiots” like the New York Times’ Russian correspondent Walter Duranty who actually won a Pulitzer for his scandalously glowing reports on the marvels of Soviet life and progress. Sound familiar?

4. Destroy God (so you can replace Him with worship of the State).

5. Corrupt science. Science and objective facts in general have to fit the tyrant’s political ideology and demands. Sound familiar?

6. Eliminate trust between people so only the State is seen as trustworthy. Sound familiar?

It’s chilling, though so far I’m slightly encouraged because I don’t YET see anyone at the helm of political power in the US who is competent enough to become a tyrant. YET.

Paula- The most ironic thing about that is that the FDA made all of the regulations to approve drugs because of Thalidomide.

I guess that means that we have come full circle. What could go wrong????

” I am getting almost always disappointed by whomever I tell this and the people mostly looking at me as I tell stories from behind the moon.”

I have come to the conclusion that only the present is fully real for most people.  If you try to describe something that could happen in the future, people don’t “get it”.  They can’t figure out why you are imagining shit that isn’t happening.

If you try to relate it to something in the past, they don’t see in a fundamental sense how the past could connect to anything that happens before or after.

What happened in the past is just a form of gossip to most people.  And the gossip is only there to fill their need to say, “Can you believe those idiots over there?  They were/are so different from us sane people.”

Those of us who at least try to think mistake that rant for a similar motivation to ours.  But it isn’t.

Vaccines aren’t “drugs”, they’re “biologics”.  Different regulations and assumptions apply, including the most basic that as a vaccine it must be safe and effective.

    following the recipe

I totally think the gang in charge is following the recipe.  They really are.

But instead of an electrifying Adolph Hitler, or a clever Stalin, or a vicious (but also very clever) Mao, they have Old Corrupt Joe Biden, who stumbles through his speeches, and looks lost a lot of the time.

It really doesn’t inspire terror.  In fact, Joe looks really pathetic – kinda like your senile old neighbor who doesn’t want you on his lawn.   Kamala – pathetic, but for a different reason.  She has a difficult time being human, she’s just that inauthentic.   She cackles at all the wrong times.  Blue voters smoked this out in about ten seconds.  How many votes did she get in the Primary?  That would be: none at all.  Of course, there is Pope Fauci, he’s a good talker, he sells well, but half the country is on to him at this point.  And he’s really all they’ve got, in terms of engaging personalities.

So while they have the recipe, and they are executing it for all they’re worth, they are utterly lacking any sort of human figure which might inspire either loyalty or terror.  They do have brownshirts – in BLM/Antifa – but they can only operate in protected “Oligarchy” cities.  If they start burning down stuff in areas that are not controlled by the Oligarchy, I do not think it will go well for them at all.  Can you imagine?

They basically just wouldn’t dare.

So why did the Oligarchy pick Old Corrupt Joe?  Was he just the low-hanging fruit?  Was he the only mathematical alternative to Scary Bernie Sanders?  Bernie definitely has ideas of his own – which probably didn’t match up with the Oligarchy so well.  I’m guessing: “Joe was the best they could get.”

As wannabee authoritarians, they have very poor material to work with in terms of leadership.  Really nobody – not even the ostensible supporters – are impressed.  But the Oligarchy is plugging ahead anyway, making the best of a bad situation.

It seems a little bit like a farce.  They do check all the right boxes in terms of a budding dictatorship, but if any of them ever came out from behind the curtain, I just don’t think it would work out so well for them.  The jig would be up.  I don’t think they’d last very long at all.

How many US soldiers would follow Rich White Mike Bloomberg?  And Company Store Bezos?  These people just aren’t inspiring.  How many votes did Rich White Mike get?  Oy vey.  About as many as Kamala.  And it cost him a few hundred million to find out that: “You’re No Donald Trump.”  Sorry Mike.

Sure, so they will push this so far, there will be no coming back for them, but I do not think they’ll succeed.  All they will do is wake up a bunch more people.

“Whoa.  So you want to monitor my text messages?”  That’s the latest from the Trusted News Gang.

Biden Regime to Monitor Private Communications, Calls on SMS Carriers to “Dispel Misinformation About Vaccines That is Sent Over Social Media and Text Messages”

Next up: No Encryption For You!

Mandating vaccination will blow up a bunch more people too.  It will force people to really figure out where they are on all this stuff.  “But – I don’t need the shot.  I already had COVID!  What’s really going on here?”

Ivory Hecker was the first in the media to defect and blow the whistle.  I believe – there will be more.  Lots more.

I mean, that’s just my sense.

Not as bad as Thalidomide but much more recent was the Vioxx debacle.

We could probably add opioids to the list as well, seeing as how Purdue Pharma swore that they were not addictive.

To think, these were situations in which the drug manufacturers did NOT have guaranteed immunity for harm caused, like the jab-makers do.

    And a little update on scary delta death rate

No time to post the charts, but here is a link (make sure to select 7 day moving average.

today’s 7-day average death rate / 7 day average of cases 2 weeks ago (June 28) = 0.18% death rate

today’s 7-day average death rate / 7 day average of cases 3 weeks ago (June 21) = 0.30% death rate

That’s about 10-20% lower than the last time I did this and now about 1/12 that of the last wave.  So delta is not so scary.  Imagine those numbers with ivermectin!

    And on US vaccination rates as of July 12

From: https://91-divoc.com/pages/covid-visualization/

% of total US populatoin fully vaccinated 48.0%

% with at least one dose 5 weeks ago: 51.5% (should have had time to receive 2nd dose and wait 2 weeks to be considered fully vaccinated)

% with at least one dose today: 55.4%

% late on their second dose (and maybe never getting it?): 3.5%

% not yet late for their second dose: 3.9%

So 6.4% of people who have received at least one dose are late on their second dose.  I wonder why?
