The Biden Administration’s effort to withdraw nearly all US troops from Afghanistan and Iraq before the end of the year is commendable and it is hoped that a departure from Syria will follow soon thereafter, but one must nevertheless be concerned that the overseas moves are being made to concentrate government resources on the domestic war that has already begun. I am, of course, referring to the ongoing efforts being made to extirpate “extremists” among American citizens who have been further identified as largely consisting of “white supremacists.”

As part of the new war, ideas or even demonstrable facts that are considered to be undesirable are being targeted by the government working together with internet resources, most particularly the social media, to attack critics. It is being argued that the alleged provision of “misinformation” is doing actual harm to the country and the American people. Recently, much of the focus has been on the COVID virus, in support of the government’s intention to have all Americans vaccinated and, increasingly, again compelled to be masked when inside buildings that are accessible to the public. These efforts are being supported by media including Facebook, which features pop-ups directing the reader to a “safe” site whenever a piece appears that challenges the government orthodoxy on the spread of the virus.

One might reasonably argue that there is a national public health crisis that is part of a global problem which requires coordinated government intervention, but the actual statistics that reveal the existing low levels of infection and death in most states would not support that contention. And one might also observe that the growing problem involving the regulation of speech and even ideas by government working in cooperation with large corporations is potentially more serious than COVID or any other virus.

If the United States government and its corporate partners were in an honest way trying to protect the American people one might at least be sympathetic regarding the efforts being made, but both government and businesses have proven to be serial liars and purveyors of egregious untruths to serve their own agendas. Recently, the White House spokesman Jen Psaki suggested that those spreading false information about COVID vaccinations might well be banned from spreading such lies on social media. The implication was that the government could compile lists of such “extremists” and use its regulatory authority to compel companies on the internet to censor individuals and groups in compliance with orders coming from the White House. The justification would be that government in this case gets a pass on limiting free speech and association due to a national health crisis.

Psaki has undoubtedly discovered a certain benevolence in big government which few Americans have noted before. Foreigners, however, being on the receiving end of wars resulting from the stream of lies emanating from Washington might well have a different viewpoint. President Bill Clinton relied on a false narrative to go to war in the Balkans and then used unprovoked attacks on Sudan and Afghanistan to draw attention away from an affair he was having with an intern. George W. Bush and his pack of neocon scoundrels, most of whom are still holding prestigious positions, used what was known to be fake information to justify destroying Afghanistan and Iraq. Barack Obama lied to overthrow the governments in Libya and Ukraine while also attempting to do the same in Syria.

All lies, all the time, and now we Americans are supposed to believe that the Biden Administration is seeking to benefit us? Online one wag quipped that “The party that believes that men can get pregnant now wants to control ‘misinformation’ on the internet?” Never forget that policies that compel all Americans to behave in certain ways, no matter how innocent in appearance, can also be used and expanded upon to mandate something more sinister.

And what about the social media companies? Facebook has long had a censorship group headed by a former Israeli government official. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has admitted to Congress that Facebook suppresses nearly all so-called “hate speech” automatically using computer algorithms that rely on word associations to determine what is allowed on the site. Pieces that are considered borderline are allowed only limited exposure, having their distribution among contacts automatically restricted and disabling sharing. Google search uses similar algorithms to make sure that sites and individuals that it does not approve of do not appear among search results. It also uses software to actually “re-direct” users away from sites that it does not approve.

And now PayPal, owned by online auction service eBay and an essential tool for small public interest groups’ support, has now announced that it will henceforth be working with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to “fight hate” by cutting off financing of extremist groups. But its definition of “hate,” criticized as highly subjective and inclined to condemn groups disliked by ADL for political reasons, has prompted legitimate concerns about where this all is going. ADL has often been criticized for finding hate virtually everywhere, particularly among conservative white groups. RT cites a recent example of such fervor “in response to an article published in Canada’s National Post, which was denounced by the ADL because its author mentioned that one of the 32 US lawmakers supporting a tax reform belonged to a Jewish fraternity.” In short, any discussion of Israel or of the behavior of Jewish individuals and groups in anything but a positive context will be considered “hate” by ADL and PayPal.

Indeed, PayPal and ADL issued a self-serving statement last week which said “PayPal and ADL will focus on further uncovering and disrupting the financial pipelines that support extremist and hate movements,” adding that they would also go after “actors and networks spreading and profiting from all forms of hate and bigotry against any community.”

The joint venture will also include the “launch[ing] of a research effort” to determine how “extremist and hate movements throughout the US are attempting to leverage financial platforms to fund criminal activity.” The negative information collected will be shared with police, financial services, and the government, presumably to create an environment where such groups will be marginalized and shut out of the public space completely, to include possibly having their supporters arrested, charged and convicted.

The growing collusion between big government and large public-accessible online information and opinion services is not a good thing. It permits those well-funded and politically connected organizations to work together to limit what the public is allowed to know. Its zeal to eliminate “misinformation” is misplaced, replacing dissident voices that have limited access to a wider audience with massive agenda driven public-private organizations that will essentially determine what is acceptable and what is not. If allowed to continue, it will be the death of free speech in this country as everything that disagrees with the approved narrative will be labeled “hateful” or “extremist,” eventually to include criminal penalties for those who disagree. It is not too much to suggest that we are witnessing the first steps in the creation of a totalitarian de facto one-party state. Perhaps that is the intention.

  1. I just watched “Easy Rider” again and was wondering if those hillbilly rednecks that killed Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda at the end of the movie represent the “white supremacists” the Biden government is concerned about? If they are then good riddance.

    Lemme guess, you look and smell like Ratso in the movie, Midnight Cowboy. Oh, btw, Hollywood doesn’t represent real life because if it did, it would show Israelis beating up elderly Palestinian women and children and Black woman abducting a 12 year old White kid and burning him with a blow torch until the poor kid succumbed to his injuries. Or they would show a demented and racist Black guy snatch an innocent and helpless 5 year old White kid from his mother and throw him off a balcony in the city of Saint George aka Minneapolis.

    So you are stupid enough to think that Jew Hollywood represents REAL LIFE instead of hate propaganda against Whites. Hmm, would inbreeding by a common practice among “hillbillies?” Because if that were the case, Jews, Arabs, Blacks and Hispanics would be the biggest hillbillies out there. Wasn’t Oprah molested by an uncle? How many Arab or Jewish women are subjected to rape or incest? Bet a steak dinner it is far more than White Southerners. And surely we all know that Arabs, Jews, and Hispanics have a thing about pedophilia. How many Jewish males like to get buggered by another man? Do they like to squeal like Ned Beatty when on one is around?

    Are you worried about Jewish Supremacists owning social media, television media, print media, publishing companies, telling lies and spewing anti-White hate speech around the clock. Would not person with a brain clearly see Whites are the victims of Jewish oppression and Black on White violence. Are you are dumb clod, a borderline retard, a coward, a Jew, or

  8. They’ve figured out how to get around the 1st Amendment: Label any kind of dissent as terrorism/extremism, and use information they’ve been collecting on all of us to destroy those who they don’t approve of through NGOs and businesses they control. Sanctioning people criticizing Israel using Freedom of Association. Genius and diabolical move!

    Ideological libertarians are probably for their banks, Paypal, ISP, webhosts, etc to stop doing service with them. That is what the Civil Rights Act was created to prevent wasn’t it? We are all Muslims now. Say hello to America’s social score! What to do besides try to get out of what they control? Is that even possible? Americans did a big oopsie putting all their eggs in huge monolithic corporate baskets that can easily be used to give each of them a personalized and automated North Korea experience. Chalmers Johnson told us over a decade ago to get out of this country while we can. The walls are closing in as we can see. Freedom of Association is going to be tested like it never has before.

    “…to concentrate resources on the domestic war that has already begun…” Yep. You said it. And it used to go further than that, much further. The last time it was more of a continental effort. Check this list of illegally overthrown South American presidents, the majority of them Left wingers (i.e hated by Washington) with the exceptions of Peron and Bordaberry.

    Chile: Salvador Allende (Overthrown in September 1973)
    Bolivia: J.J. Torres June 1976 (overthrown in Aug. 1971, assassinated in June 1976)
    Peru: Juan Velasco Alvarado (overthrown in Aug. 1975)
    Argentina: Isabel Martinez de Peron (overthrown in March 1976)
    Uruguay: Juan Maria Bordaberry (democratically elected in 1972, assumes dictatorial powers in 1973, toppled by military coup in 1976, military regime last until 1985)

    Do you see a common thread…? Of course: the fact that they were all overthrown during the first half of the 1970s, at the time when the U.S. was having its collective ass handed on a silver platter in Vietnam. The empire was compensating its devastating loss in Indochina by strengthening its tight grip in its Latin American “backyard”. But of course that wasn’t only Amerrica doing the dirty work but also and above all the national elites, who were as scared as any Amerrican Cold Warrior of the apparently unstoppable global Communist juggernaut.

    F.F. fifty years into the future, to Aug, 2021: after its forced retreat from Afghanistan and then most likely Iraq and Syria and the whole of the ME, and probably after being expelled also from Asia and why not, Eastern Europe too, the U.S. empire would naturally want to repeat something similar, if only by force of habit. But fortunately another round of murderous South American dictatorships and another Operacion Condor won’t be possible this time, not only because the people in the sub-continent have been vaccinated against the bad influence of the empire (proven by the abject failure of Trump when trying to gather the minimum Latin American backing to launch a military attack against Venezuela) but also for the fact that it, the Amerrican empire, is not the same of the 1970s. Old, wasted, weakened and corroded by decades of immorality, abuse of power, corruption and all kinds of scandals, added that to economic and financial decay, even ruin, not to mention its proven military incompetence all over the world, there is no way the U.S. would be able to reclaim the South American sub-continent as it did it in the 1970s. It will be then for Amerricans alone to face the brunt of the backlash resulting from imperial decay and you better prepare for that.

    “Easy Rider” was a fantasy made by rich dopeheads in a country that was functioning pretty well at the time. The movie came out in 1969 when the proto-Covid-19 called the Hong Kong Flu killed more people as a percentage of population than the current one. And not a single person outside of a hospital donned so much as a surgical mask.

    Fun trivia: The title Easy Rider is a ghetto slang term for a lazy man who lives off the earnings of a prostitute. Rich producers of crap movies know what they really are, eh?

  15. Leftists pretend they can read the minds of people who were invited to enter the Capitol on January 6. It’s amazing, isn’t it, the left’s ability to telepathically know people’s motives, not only from a remote location, but also backwards in time? This goes hand in hand with “hate speech”, which assumes the left is able to know your inner motivations, then gives legal permission to criminalize them.

    Hate speech is a thinly disguised preemptive weapon against the left’s enemies, providing a perfect excuse for double standards. When they charge you with hate speech, it’s impossible to disprove. Whoever is in power arbitrarily defines what is or is not evidence, based on non-physical, unverifiable attributes. Biden and his minions are already using such telepathically-derived motives to brand every Trump voter a “terrorist”.

    If conservatives hadn’t been so stupid, they would have fought with all their strength to stop this. Now it’s too late, hate speech is enshrined as legal precedent. We’ve regressed into a brutal historical past, the kind that caused men to give their lives for over hundreds of years in order to instill true justice. But now with the new, improved, woke USA, justice has been trashed beyond repair.

The problem they have is that reality peeks out from under the fog and it has to be managed in some way. They’re becoming bolder and more audacious in their attempt to control the minds and lives of the mass of Americans because their lies have become greater in scale. They’re going for flat out coercion and dictatorial control when the manufacture of consent can’t do the job anymore.

    These are not the first steps. We are already very far along the path of a defacto totalitarian state thanks to our Zionist masters and the innumerable Gentile sell outs that populate our political class.

    Free speech is already dead, our government serves Zion, and we comfort ourselves by being able to go to a shooting range and fire our pistols before returning home to catch the football game. And we delude ourselves into believing the US military would never turn against its own citizens.

    Hard to see how our government can change at this point to actually serve America or how our rights to free speech can be protected.

    Communist lisping faggots are extra faggot with an extra lisp just to be annoying to the max AS THEY WARP THE LANGUAGE AND CONTROL THE FRAME.

    We all know that “hate” means truth whenever a Bolshevik says it. And an extremist is a white person who dares to speak the obvious truth. (((They))) can’t allow “truth speech” on the internet. It is “hate” to notice and point out obvious truth.

    But the focus of my complaint here in this comment is the fact that the word is “hatred.” That’s the noun. “Hate” is a verb. Only a faggot says “hate” as a noun. They should be talking about “hatred speech” and “hatred”, if they want to talk about this idea. They want to stamp out hatred (truth), not hate.

    Other examples of warping our language by Jewish leftists: woke, since the 1980s, means “aware of the JQ.” Or aware that the emperor has no clothes. We on the right, red pilled, are the “woke.” That’s how that word has always been used until about 4 years ago.

    Now “woke” is the brainwashed leftists? The pussy hatters who melted down after trump won in 2016 are “woke”? No. They are the opposite of woke.

    We on the right are the woke.

    Where did “woke” first appear in the Jewish press as meaning “brainwashed communist NPC”? I think it was around 2016.

    Also: red is the communist color. We have red China and red USSR. Everyone knows this. McCarthy fought “the reds.”

    But CNN created “red states” on election night 2000 (or 2004?) as the Republican states just to get an extra “look at the dumb goyim” chuckle. And now it’s just accepted as the nomenclature.

    That’s bullshit.

    That first began with the 2000 election or something like that. Obviously if we are going to use a color coding system, the Democrats, who are openly communist, should be assigned red. Republicans should be blue.

  28. As Thomas Jefferson noted about Shays Rebellion (in his letter to William Smith”:
    “I say nothing of it’s motives. they were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion.

    The people cannot be all, & always, well informed. the part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive; if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had 13. states independant 11. years. there has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. what country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?

    Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them.

    What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure.”

    At the beginning of the movie, Peter Fonda unstraps and throws away his watch. This is equivalent to saying, “Once upon a time….”. The movie depicts never, never land, a place where time doesn’t exist. It’s not meant to be taken as real, you silly goose. You’re as naive as a child who believes in Fairy Tales*.

    The truth is, most Southerners are decent, law-abiding people whose innate politeness puts northerners to shame. And no, they aren’t interested in buggering you if you paddle down one of their rivers either, as depicted in that other notoriously bigoted movie: Deliverance. Fact of the matter is, if you canoe a southern river you will likely run into plenty of family folks who, like yourself, are looking to enjoy a pleasant day off, out on the water.

    Easy Rider and Deliverance were to Northerners’ view of the South as Jaws was to open-water swimming. And recall, Peter Benchley is on record as have regretted making the movie because it evoked and reinforced such deep-seated prejudice against sharks. “Upon his death in 2006, Benchley’s widow Wendy declared the author “kept telling people the book was fiction”,” Wiki

    *Not to denigrate Fairy Tales which, more often than not, embody deep, serious truths which are far beyond the reasoning capability of a child. Any adult who hasn’t returned to Grimm’s is uneducated.

    We always used to be distinguished, and universally recognized as distinguishable, by our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Even middle schoolers learn, or I should say used to, that starting and prosecuting foreign wars is deleterious to Rights at home.

    Since the kick-off of the GWOT, Neocon filth did enormous damage with their mindless mantra, “the Constitution isn’t a suicide pact.”

    Now few pay attention when Obama shouts that it’s “just a piece of parchment” that we’ve evolved beyond.

    . . . but one must nevertheless be concerned that the overseas moves are being made to concentrate government resources on the domestic war that has already begun.

    Readers should note “resources” not military personnel per se. I would add that the current installed illegitimate “Biden” regime has been engaged in a carrot and stick preparatory effort to keep foreign powers invested in its internal consolidation of power in contradistinction to the consent of the governed.

    Think of it as a mirror of what Trump encountered wherein factions within the MIC attempted foreign crises and deadly, humiliating incidents to fuel the narrative that he must go.

    We haven’t yet seen that there are any limits to the national interest they won’t sacrifice to protect themselves and their hold on power and command of resources. Not the least, degrading, threatening. and collapsing essential institutions and the very heart of our Constitutional Republic.

    Most have forgotten it if they ever noticed in the first place but a “Siege in all 50 state capitals” was promised (threatened) beginning in September 2020, until Trump was gone. That was delayed only to reappear on the Fake News on January 6th, having morphed into “Trump supporter” coordinated attacks, along with Trump’s “insurrection” at the Capitol.

    Trump saved the nation then by drawing the action Washington from whence it derived — taking the air out of the innumerable false flags planned in the states.

    Since then we’ve seen the “Biden” regime (and regime media and social media) use every lever at its disposal to throw the entire country into disunity, chaos and violence it can exploit, when the real factional war is in Washington and always has been.

    The salient struggle right now is among the Democrats over whether they will compete to win elections in 2022 and 2024. You should keep a close eye on how they’re governing, does it look like they are concerned with public approval or is that all taken care of with Fake News and Fake Polls.

    Trump didn’t concede and MAGA refused to take the False Flag bait. You’re not paying attention if you don’t see that time, as in if things keep going the way they’re going through to the 2022 election, isn’t on the side of the regime. That makes this situation immensely dangerous.

Blinken specifically invited Fernand de Varennes, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues, and Tendayi Achiume, the UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism. NATIONAL FILE has obtained video footage of de Varennes calling for the criminalization of “hate speech” and pushing for censorship by saying that free expression is not absolute. de Varennes even said that “I don’t think it will take that much effort” to pass legislation in the United States holding social media companies liable for supposed hate speech. NATIONAL FILE has also compiled evidence of both Varennes and Achiume bashing President Donald Trump and his supporters, and of Achiume calling for reparations for slavery and for “Migration as Decolonization” in Western countries including the United States of America.

  48. The growing collusion between big government and large public-accessible online information and opinion services is not a good thing. It permits those well-funded and politically connected organizations to work together to limit what the public is allowed to know.

    i make a separation between free speech an the use of speech as a weapon against individusls or groups. There are laws already in place to handle the abuse of speech for the purpose of intimidation, harassment, personality killing, breach of privacy and so on.

    So unless there is a court order I think the online information services are not welcomed to censor the free expression of ideas and facts. However, as private entreprises they have a legal right to do so if they wish. People still have the option of using alternative social media platforms and anyone can start his own social media platform he wishes to do so. Why everyone wants to use those few platforms is another issue.

    The Paypal actions may have still more impact than those of Facebook and Twitter though.

    If people can’t talk freely anymore the elitists will take over the control for awhile and then political instability will result in the long term. Are the people stupid and the elites so smart?

    The simple reason for rejecting censorship is that censorship is a filtering of information and decisions based on biased information are more likely to result in poor outcomes. So I share the concerns of Philip.

    ‘the government’s intention to have all Americans vaccinated’ — Philip Giraldi

    When the CDC reimposed mask requirements, it cited unpublished studies. For once, journos actually dug into the story and revealed the incident which set off alarm bells in the CDC: a July 4th gathering at Provincetown, Mass. produced a covid outbreak affecting 882 people, among whom 74% were vaccinated. OOPS!

    Provincetown demolished the ‘vax everyone’ logic. Evidently, vaxxed persons can get infected, replicate the viral load in their nasal passages to the same level as in unvaxxed people, and then spread it to others. Dr Fauci recently shifted the narrative for the dozenth time, now claiming that the main benefit of vaccination is to ‘protect yourself’ by reducing symptom severity, not to stop the spread.

    Big Gov being a gigantic juggernaut managed by thousands of not-so-bright people, most failed to get the memo. Comically, they actually doubled down on the alleged need to vax ourselves to herd immunity, just when the Provincetown debacle illustrated the futility of such an approach. Addled Dementia Joe proudly led this scrum of uninformed know-nothings.

    Simultaneously, Big Gov and the Lügenpresse also doubled down on menacing rhetoric about ‘holding the unvaxxed responsible,’ just when it became clear that the vaccinated serve as disease vectors too. ‘Bring on the crackdown,’ huffed the La-La Land Times, practically jizzing itself on the sugarplum vision of studded jackboots coming down hard on unvaxxed necks.

    Indeed — as detailed in Dr Chris Martenson’s YouTube interview with Dr Geert Vanden Bossche — in the worst case, it’s possible that the selection pressure applied to the virus by mass vaccination is actually provoking faster mutation, with partially vaxxed people serving as unwitting Petri dishes for these mutations.

    Facts mean nothing to Big Gov, though. Science as we knew it, with free exchange of ideas, is increasingly impossible under a regime of harsh censorship and retaliatory firings.

    Now the tragic covid wave of last winter repeats as farce. Just listen to the clownish cuck Mayor deBlasio:

    “When you hear those words, I want you to imagine the notion that, because someone’s vaccinated, they can do all the amazing things that are available in this city,” de Blasio said of the Key to NYC Pass.

At the same time these losers were travelling the land intoxicating themselves with controlled substances and with empty ideals of self-worth and purpose, I and many million others like me around the world were going to college, to university, starting a job, starting a family, making plans for a future we considered belonging to us for natural right. Speaking of right, maybe those rednecks in the truck were just cleaning their land.

    BTW, the IMBd description of the storyline says it all:

    “Netting a hefty profit from their latest drug deal, hippies Wyatt and Billy decide to outfit themselves with among other things motorbikes – Wyatt complete in what they call his Captain America gear and similar motif on the bike – and chucking any structure in their lives beyond the want to get there for the event, cycle from their home base of Los Angeles to New Orleans for Mardi Gras in just over a week. They don’t plan to spend their proceeds on this trip – they saving that for a more carefree life in Florida after the fact”

    Yep, they got a load of money from their last drug deal but sensible as they are, they don’t want to waste that money, they are keeping it to start a new careless life in Florida. Peachy. Just the kind of guys you want your daughter to bring home for diner.

    Great post. You are correct about the Hong Dong Flu of 1969, one of the most unique years ever in the last 120 years. I was a teen at the time and can’t remember a single person in my own High School Class, including the High School across town, a number of teens adding up to around up to around 5,500 , being seriously affected by it. It did do in some elderly including the aged movie queen of another era, Tallulah Bankhead. As you wrote, everything stayed open, restaurants, movie theaters, schools, businesses. Americans were involved in landing on the moon, (July 20 1969), Woodstock, (around 250,000 people showed up there), baseball, (worst team at the time winning the world series, NY Mets).etc. In fact, in that year with the moon landing, (whether one believes it or not), The United States of America, reached the pinnacle of its fame, while the world looked on with a combination of jealousy and admiration.

    I find contradictions in conservative’s thinking fascinating:

    Giraldi Ph.D on one hand openly decries the unfairness of big internet companies (which btw are private enterprise) performing routine maintenance on their plumbing to keep rivers of irrelevant pornographic crap from pouring directly into into their customers eyeballs, while at the same making sweeping generalizations about what he sees as ‘reasonable’ levels of attendant death from a public health crisis.

    Giraldi makes no sense in a way by which it’s not just what he says, in context, that’s contradictory, but that his entire mode of thinking is senseless.

    All the reader can take away is the insane and horrifyingly common refrain among conservatives that other people dying is not only not all that bad, but moreover quite reasonable even as Giraldi scooches around from flag-pole to flag-pole yet ignoring where to set the banner of reasonableness. We know his reasonability metric is different for thee than it is for mee, but he gets his readers to unconsciously parse the thought of what could be a reasonable at a governmental level. Remember conservatives congressmen bandying about the dead-body of Terry Schiavo and screeching about Death Panels.

Regular people get by purpose or by accident into a foreign, hostile, mileu where they find hostile forces, creatures, meant to harm them because that is their nature (or also they delve with forces they can’t control as in the Exorcist) Humans are then see either as food, either as intruders or even as vermin, They are not humans anymore, members of society they are alien creatures to be destroyed, fed upon, etc. It does bring a bell…?

  68. I don’t agree with the part about Covid. We are in a big trouble and presently nobody knows how this will evolve, when we are going to be able to live normally again. The situation is now better than it was last year when scores of people were dying everywhere. The combination of a set of measures has had some effectivity and the number of people getting infected, getting ill or dying is now lower.

    We thought that a lockdown would be a measure that would bring us back to a normal situation, after that we hoped that the vaccination could solve all problems. But meanwhile it’s clear that the effects of the vaccine diminish with the time and that during this time the virus also changes and gets more capable of coping with the vaccine. Apparently this is known from the case of other Sars virus that affect animals.

    Because of that the situation now is not clear. We still don’t have a definitive answer to many questions, and for the first time we don’t know exactly what to do. People who are vaccinated can be a carrier of the virus (at least for some time, but we don’t know whether, or how much, they can infect other people), but it’s also possible that they get seriously ill less often. On the other hand, people who are not vaccinated can contribute more actively to new variations of the virus which may be more difficult to fight. We don’t know what will happen and what we can do. The people protesting against the use of the mask are the people who have the less idea what is going on and what covid is about.

  70. I don’t think that Jews conceive of FREE SPEECH in the same way that European Christians do. The Jew conception of FREE SPEECH is that any speech that questions the behaviour or actions of Jews or Jew organizations or Israel is not free speech.

    Comcast(NBC) and Disney(ABC) and Viacom(CBS) and the New York Times and Alphabet(Google) and other corporate media outlets are controlled by Jews and they do not support free speech for anybody but themselves. Although the New York Times has been more open to debating immigration over the last few decades than has been the Wall Street Journal under the control of the Murdoch Mob and its previous owners.

    The internet has been shutting down free speech and shuttering the ability of regular people to express their FREE SPEECH and it doesn’t seem to me like organized Jewry has been too bothered. I would argue very strenuously that JOG — Jews Organized Globally — is expressly interested in destroying FREE SPEECH all over the world.

    I have been saying for years — along with others — that what we got in the American Empire is a JEW/WASP Ruling Class and the Jew portion of that ruling class does not want any FREE SPEECH in regards to the Jew Question or about Israel or about the Israel Lobby in the USA.

    The JEW QUESTION explained:

    Jews form a nation within a nation everywhere they reside. Can Jews ever be considered to be part of the larger nation in which they reside when they are genetically and culturally predisposed to put the interests of the Jew Nation over and above the interests of the larger nations in which they reside?

    You do it. Meanwhile I’ll give you a hand mentioning a few other titles that deal with Vietnam topics, which in some cases appear intertwined

    People trying to survive in foreign hostile lands, milieu: First Blood (the first Rambo, which I happened to watch when it just came out and it seemed to me as the tale of a Vietnam vet coming back home and finding it turned into another Vietnam, that was before Stallone discovered that he had stricken gold with it); Midnight Express, Wicker Man,

    Escape movies, appropriately enough with many thousands of US troops MIA or POWs: Papillon, The Poseidon Adventure, Escape from Alcatraz, Logan’s Run, The Getaway.

    Movies heavily inspired by Vietnam about all by daring to show for the first time on the screen the real face of murderous violence: Bonnie and Clyde, the Wild Bunch, In Cold Blood, Straw Dogs, Cross of Iron and any Peckinpah movie of the era, whose work was heavily inspired by the Vietnam War.

    Those are just a few I may add to the list. If you keep at that you may find dozens.

    That is true but the only power Church Zion has is Zion, so Zion is the only real power in our time.

    No real Church ideas are allowed such as love your “enemies” – Iran, China or Russia.

    Thus we have “Religion (Zion being the religion) and State” these days in its harshest form perhaps ever in the history of humanity.

    The term “Separation of Church and State” should for our time be updated as “Separation of Religion (such as Zion) and State.

    It is insane that a religious based organization such as the ADL should have so much power over the lives of every American. It is Religion and State at it worst working together

    Your elections are fixed by the ruling clique. So you would need to find another way of appointing your Solon, if you could find him.
    The best option would be armed revolution followed by the extermination of all the people in power in your country.

    Yes, the “steal” was out in the open as the marxist democRATs were openly blatant in their fraud.
    What say you about the fact that the traditional “flu” in the 2020-2021 “flu season” was nonexistent? Even motorcycle and auto accident fatalities were classified as “COVID deaths”.
    The special “COVID hospitals” were almost empty as active COVID cases were purposely placed in nursing homes–one of the worst places to place COVID individuals.
    The PCR tests, used to determine COVID status were flawed as these tests were never intended to be used as diagnostic tests.
    The “vaccines” are the worst of the lot, actually modifying DNA. As DNA can be patented, anyone who receives the mRNA “vaccines” becomes the property of the DNA patent holders…as the recipient’s DNA is modified with patented DNA.

    It’s much worse. I can remember when those jews who touted “separation of church and state” pushed their agenda to the extreme–instituting lawsuits against municipalities who chose to allow Christmas displays on public property. The lawsuits were numerous, from big-city displays to small towns-public displays of Christianity were outlawed.
    It’s turned full-circle. Christmas displays are still prohibited on public property while jewish menorahs are cropping up all over the place. Hell, even the White House proudly publicly displayed a jewish menorah.
    Jews no longer couch their hatred of Christianity in legal terms, but are overtly brash and confident in their hatred of Christianity.
    It is interesting to note that every jewish holiday is a celebration of conquest, supremacy or screwing goyim out of life or possessions.

    “According to the WHO, finding this animal would be the first step on a long journey toward determining how the spillover into the human population originally occurred,” the article said.

    As for the “lab leak theory,” the Big News Network article quoted virologist Vincent Racaniello, professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Columbia University Medical Center, as saying “there is zero direct evidence the virus came from a lab and that such an idea completely ignores known scientific facts.”

    The article also said the lab leak theory is groundless, as can be seen by looking at how the media reported the issue. The New York Times once published a story headlined “Scientists don’t want to ignore the lab leak theory, despite no new evidence.” The Wire wrote a story called “The COVID-19 lab leak theory is a tale of weaponized uncertainty.”

    It also mentioned the U.S. has passed legislation to spend \$300 million for a “countering Chinese influence” fund and \$100 million in funds for media companies to “raise awareness of and increase transparency regarding the negative impact of activities related to the Belt and Road Initiative.”

    Such actions raised doubts on their intentions when it comes to the origin tracing which could misled the public, said the article. “If this complicated, sensitive, and important work cannot be done impartially and professionally, we will all suffer the consequences,” it added.

And mainly, amazed by patience and courtesy with which they answered my silly questions and relieved my concerns. There is a famous Heinlein quote that basically says the absence of politeness and good manners in small matters is a better marker of an unraveled civilization than is a riot.

    The difference is that China is an open one Party State, where anyone can join that Party and rise according to their talents, motivation and luck, and the Party is dedicated to social progress across the entire population.
    In contrast the one party States of the West are dedicated to serving the rich owners of the economy, and treat the serfs with contempt. The proles are divided into two or more increasingly antagonistic gangs, the internecine hatred between is only ever growing, and if any Party is taken over by elements that threaten the ruling elite, eg UK Labour under Corbyn, it is destroyed with a total war strategy led by the MSM vermin, the local Deep State, and, in Corbyn’s case, derangedelements of the Judaic hierarchy, aided, abetted and directed by the Zionazi terror regime in Occupied Palestine.

    Chinese dynasties did tend to become corrupt after a time, due to the malign influence of factions at court, often Imperial in-laws, ambitious eunuchs, military figures etc. So the dynasty crumbled, much internecine turmoil and peasant rebellions ensued, until new talented figures pulled things together again. The current Chinese Government might grow corrupt in a few hundred years, if humanity exists that long, but at present, despite relentless Western agit-prop, subversion, sabotage and military intimidation,it is creating the most amazing economic, social, technological, scientific and, increasingly, ecological, transformation in history.

    It is about a month now that Mossad cyber units have been transferring advanced equipment to one of the emirates of the United Arab Emirates, a comprehensive plan to disrupt communications networks and naval and air navigation systems in the United Arab Emirates.

    One security official said: “Creating discord and misunderstanding between the countries of the Persian Gulf and involving them in an unwanted conflict has been Israel’s main goal in this regard.”

    He said the transfer of the crisis from the occupied territories to the Persian Gulf and the Sea of ​​Oman and the reduction of political and security pressures on regime’s governing body were another goal of Israel in creating a crisis in the Persian Gulf region.

    Biden is a Zionist mass murderer and a liar to the bone, like Trump. His foreign policy in the Middle East region is IDENTICAL to Jewish mafia pimp trump. Blinken the Jewish mafia fifth column is following the ‘Abraham accord’ and ‘extreme pressure’ of the bygone Trump regime as a tool to force Iran, Lebanon, Iraq into submission which FAILED for stupid Trump, yet the arrogant zionist Blinken thinks that he might have a longer ‘stick’ to force people to conform. Everyone shows their middle finger to the dummies.

    Therefore, Iran had to send a letter to the President of the Security Council; Warning the Zionist regime that it should watch its steps. the letter reads:

    [MORE]

    “Mr. President, I am writing this letter to you in connection with the letter dated 3 August 2021 from the representatives of Liberia, Romania and the United Kingdom.”
    The authors of the letter, without providing any evidence to substantiate their claims, resorted to terms such as “very likely”, “initial assessments” and “one or more drones” due to uncertainty, as well as the use of ambiguous terms. Like the “international partners”, they have tried to arbitrarily accuse the Islamic Republic of Iran of attacking the Mercer Street ship.

    The Iranian representative added in the letter: “This baseless claim – which was first made by the Israeli regime immediately after the attack and with obvious political motives – is factually incorrect and politically and morally irresponsible. The basis is firmly rejected.

    The letter states: “The Islamic Republic of Iran, with its long coastline and numerous port facilities in the Caspian Sea, Persian Gulf and Oman Sea, as well as a strong shipping fleet, has both a significant advantage in maritime security and freedom of navigation and is of great importance for They believe. In line with this long-standing goal and policy, and in full compliance with relevant international obligations, Iran has also significantly contributed to strengthening maritime security and freedom of navigation. The deployment of the Iranian navy in the Indian Ocean and adjacent areas for more than a decade in support of international efforts to combat piracy in those areas has been repeatedly acknowledged by the UN Secretary-General in his related reports and by the Security Council. , Has also been praised in its numerous resolutions.

    “I would also like to take this opportunity to categorically reject the similar and other baseless claims of the Israeli regime as the main source of instability and insecurity in the Middle East and beyond for more than seven decades,” Ershadi said in the letter. The regime has a long and dark history of attacking merchant navigation and civilian ships, including a brutal attack in international Mediterranean waters on May 31, 2010, against six civilian ships of the Gaza Freedom Fleet carrying humanitarian aid to civilians. It was the siege of Gaza, killing nine civilians and wounding many others on those ships. Also, in less than two years, the regime has reportedly attacked more than a dozen merchant ships carrying oil and humanitarian goods destined for Syria.

    threats to maritime safety and freedom of navigation, as well as its long history of conducting complex false operations on the high seas and major international waterways, the letter reads: The Security Council must be fully aware of the regime’s security and military adventures in a sensitive region such as the Middle East, and hold it accountable for all its illegal and highly destabilizing activities.

    “Given the recent provocative statements by Israeli officials who have threatened to use force in gross violation of Article 2 of the UN Charter, the regime needs to be reminded that it must wait for the consequences of all its adventures and calculations,” the letter reads. Be your possible inaccuracy. While warning against such threats from any source, the Islamic Republic of Iran will not hesitate to take any necessary measures to fully protect its people, defend its sovereignty and secure its national interests.

    “We also warn of recent suspicious attempts to create fake maritime ‘incidents’ in the Persian Gulf and beyond,” Ershadi said. Such irresponsible acts are detrimental to the security and stability of the region and must be stopped immediately. It would be appreciated if this letter was published as a document of the Security Council.

    Following baseless allegations against Iran in recent days, Iranian Ambassador to London Mohsen Baharvand also wrote a letter to the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization condemning these baseless allegations.

Our founding fathers were very afraid of this happening, they warned against it in the first clause in the Bill of Rights. The “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”.

    https://www.mtsu.edu/first-amendment/article/885/establishment-clause-separation-of-church-and-state

    The first clause in the Bill of Rights states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

    Thomas Jefferson messed up this concept with his “separation of Church and State” metaphor. Non-Christian cultures like Judaism can now say that we are not a “Church”, thus, we can go to the top of any government and promote our values. Thomas Jefferson could not conceive that another faith would attempt to go to the top of our government like this. It sadly has happened in the last hundred years or so to the most extreme level. We see it today, in all areas of government with its lackeys such as the media working lock stop together to promote, enforce Jewish religious fantasies on all of us.

    The most famous use of the metaphor was by Thomas Jefferson in his 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association. In it, Jefferson declared that when the American people adopted the establishment clause they built a “wall of separation between the church and state.”

    The author this article mentions “religious diversity”. Yes, update the metaphor to the “separation of religion and state” for our time of “religious diversity”.

    From the colonial era to the present, religions and religious beliefs have played a significant role in the political life of the United States. Religion has been at the core of some of the best and worst movements in the country’s history. As religious diversity continues to grow, concerns about separation of church and state are likely to continue.

    Good points, Thank you.

    Many including the Jewish magazine, ‘Forward’, is worried about too many “engaged Jews” in Biden regime. Forward is worried that it may promotes ‘antisemitism’

    https://forward.com/news/462330/enough-for-a-minyan-a-jewish-whos-who-of-bidens-cabinet-to-be/

    “As President-elect Joe Biden announced his picks for the Cabinet, the joke went around on Jewish Twitter that the West Wing would have a minyan.

    Indeed, at least 10 prominent Jews have been nominated to key positions. There’s Ronald Klain (chief of staff); Anthony Blinken (Secretary of State); Janet Yellen (Treasury); Merrick Garland (Attorney General); Alejandro Mayorkas (Homeland Security);and Avril Haines (Director of National Intelligence). One level down are Wendy Sherman (deputy Secretary of State); Eric Lander (science and technology adviser); Ann Neuberger (deputy National Security Adviser); and David Cohen (deputy CIA director).
    Plus there’s Doug Emhoff, the Jewish husband of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.”

    ‘forward’ continues:

    “the fact that so many well-known and engaged Jews will serve in the highest levels of the” administration “and no one talks about that and it’s not an issue, that says a lot about how far American society has progressed.”

    The deceptive ‘forward’ does not talk about too many laws that the Jewish Mafia has passed using their fifth column ‘politicians’, including Trump, Biden, Clinton and others, to silence the public critics. Also through ‘education’ to brainwash Americans from the early age, like the Jewish children who are brainwashed through their religious schools.
    .
    That’s why Americans and Europeans in large numbers supported the Palestinians people against the zionist mass murderers in the last massacre leading to Palestinians’ victory who WON the media war against the apartheid entity. Now, they are screaming, we are ALL Palestinians.

    David Cohen (deputy CIA director) of Biden regime, has performed a special role in forcing sanctions on Iran using Jewish treasury department where should receive the title of murderer of humanity, and as long as Americans are silent and do not wish to take any chance , the situation remains the same until the whole system collapses where it might not b too long from now.

    People in the US are asking each other, why should they go to school and get degree’s, even PhD when there is no job for them. All high position jobs are reserved for the Jewish mafia members.

    Iranians – Americans are the most educated group in the US and Canada, but have no influence and cannot held a position in the government. Reza Aslan, a professor in reply to a question, in a gathering promoting his latest book, when asked why YOU as an expert on Iran as not been given a job at the state department? Don’t forget that Reza Aslan is an Iran opposition.
    He replied: They have offered me a job in ‘china table’ where I know nothing about.
    But, all the high profile positions in the middle east are given to Engaged Jews with no thought about its ramification. This is TREASON.

    Well, as per your definition neither does Deliverance bears any connection to the South, since the plot is about four men from Atlanta who go canoeing in Northern Georgia. It is simply a book (and later a movie) written by a guy from Georgia about some guys from Georgia taking a trip in Georgia and meeting some other guys from Georgia.

    Nice try.

    That “joke” is only possible because not many people are aware of original the Bill of Rights first clause. It does not say the “separation of between Church and State”. That is from a 1802 letter that Jefferson wrote in 1802. A 1947 case, joined Jefferson’s concept to the Bill Rights clause. It was “big deal”. It was not a big deal, it a deal to hide Zionist control of our government. Zionist just won WWII for their cause. They wanted no one looking at them, this case sealed the deal. How did it work? Since Zion could is not Christian, thus it is not a “church”. Thus, no “church and state” rule is possible with Zion at the helms of power. We have to return to the original Bill of Rights clause to get all religious fanatics out of our government.

    https://www.freedomforuminstitute.org/about/faq/the-first-amendment-says-nothing-about-separation-of-church-and-state-or-a-wall-of-separation-between-church-and-state-where-did-this-idea-come-from-is-it-really/

    Then in 1802, Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, wrote: “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.”

    The Supreme Court has cited Jefferson’s letter in key cases, beginning with a polygamy case in the 19th century. In the 1947 case Everson v. Board of Education, the Court cited a direct link between Jefferson’s “wall of separation” concept and the First Amendment’s establishment clause.

    I can remember when those jews who touted “separation of church and state” pushed their agenda to the extreme–instituting lawsuits against municipalities who chose to allow Christmas displays on public property. The lawsuits were numerous, from big-city displays to small towns-public displays of Christianity were outlawed.
    It’s turned full-circle. Christian Christmas displays are still prohibited on public property while jewish menorahs are cropping up all over the place. Hell, even the White House proudly publicly displayed a jewish menorah.
    Jews no longer couch their hatred of Christianity in legal terms, but are overtly brash and confident in their overt hatred of Christianity.
    It is long overdue for ((them)) to be kicked out of country 110…

    I remember it too. Yet, the “separation of church and state” is not in our Bill of Rights. Our “free press” does not mention that at all.

    The first clause in the Bill of Rights states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

    A better metaphor related to the first clause of the Bill Rights would be the “separation of religion and state”. It would then prevent any religion establishing itself as the main power in government.

    Top Jews think that since they are not a “church”, that they can do anything that they want at the top of our government by hiding behind the “separation of church and state” metaphor. A metaphor that does not even exist in our the Bill of Rights.

    I noticed that too that menorahs are all over the place during Christmas time. These menorahs are a good example of Top Jews promoting their religion over other religions. Menorahs are used in religious ceremonies, thus their being placed everywhere and no other religion being allowed to do so, is establishing or promoting one religion over others. The Christmas tree is only related to the religious holiday, it is not part of any religious ceremonies.

    If I stopped using Facebook, I would miss all those posts from people who are getting vaccinated and suffering more or less horrible consequences, from persistent rashes and high fevers, to complete loss of limb and other functions. If I missed that information, I may be tempted to get injected myself.

    Just as you can read between the lying lines of the mainstream media, you can find a lot of critically important data in social media.

    freedom of mad cows in a herd

    Is exactly how our “free press” is acting lately. A groupthink herd of mad cows mooing out any response from any other cows.

    This site examines the free and open debate role in ancient Greece compared to the USA of 2021.

    https://www.debate.org/opinions/in-ancient-greece-debate-played-a-significant-role-in-citizenship-is-this-true-of-american-society-today

    ‘In ancient Greece, [free and open] debate played a significant role in citizenship. Is this true of American society today? ‘ To this question, I answered with, NO.

    Yes, speech is controlled in our times in the “the land of the faux free”.

    Until WE the PEOPLE, CHOOSE to cast off the shackles of anonymous censorship, Public shaming, Political correctness, Along with the accompanying, Social banishment and pick up the righteous standard of ‘free and open debate’ then, WE the PEOPLE can only look toward a future of tyranny for OUR Constitutional Republic where her oppressed people FEAR to state any contrary opinion out of fear of significant personal reprisals for their views.

    The ADL has long run the most wide-ranging private spying apparatus in the USA. When linked to Zionazi cyber-intelligence, and privatised MOSSAD clones like Black Cube, the Zionazis intend identifying everyone who could ever ‘..get in our way’, for neutralisation. They’ll use the US ‘Justice’ Department yeshiva to do the dirty work.

    There were several such groups, all liquidated, but the move was criticised as ‘scattering the cockroaches’ (our Masters really do love us) because the scattered sufferers will pop up all over the place, instead of being concentrated where they could be more easily surveilled.
