The Tyranny of the Minority

Nicholas Nassim Taleb, one of the most perceptive thinkers alive today, has found yet another insight that explains a lot of things. Years ago, he came up with The Black Swan theory. Lately, he’s formulated The Tyranny of the Minority.

Take the Black Swan theory. Basically, a Black Swan is an extremely rare phenomenon that comes out of nowhere and upends things. In retrospect, someone connects the dots and says “Aha! It’s obvious now. We should have seen it coming!” Think for example, about the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. That came out of nowhere.  There was, seemingly, no way the Imperial Japanese navy’s bombers could reach the American fleet at Hawaii. In retrospect, however, we probably should have seen it coming giving the increasingly harsh constrictions the United States placed against the Empire of Japan as it prosecuted its war against Manchuria. Admiral Yamamoto came up with a plan to cripple the Pacific Fleet and give Japan enough time and battle-space to sue for an honorable peace.

If you would like to know more about the Black Swan phenomenon, you can read about it here:

The Tyranny of the Minority, however (Taleb’s most recent insight), is insane in that it is not based on any rational grievance or proposes a rational endgame. An example would be gay “marriage”. Few could have intuited that the desired result of homosexual activists was to distort the concept of the family. Another example is the BLM nonsense, which has devolved into a shakedown operation to the tune of $100 million and counting. Perhaps the most famous ruse is transgenderism. Its grip on the body politic is so titanic that even the most powerful politicians bend the knee to its immoral pretensions.

In none of these cases is the desired result amicability and social cohesion, no matter how much the advocates proclaim. It is instead, another example of anarcho-tyranny. The BLM program for example, is not to elevate the status of black people but to permanently –and incessantly–victimize another race for its perceived sins or “privilege”. It is straight out of Mao’s Cultural Revolution, a phenomenon which was used to permanently terrorize the Chinese population at large; even card-carrying members of the Communist Party were always on guard of being ratted out for some perceived infraction of Marxism.

Compare the Tyranny of the Minority with the Black Swan. Military provocations, acts of aggression, and financial chicanery are regrettable yet they are understandable, especially when we consider we cannot do without the military or banks. These are legal institutions that, in and of themselves, are necessary for the proper functioning of society. They are (all in all) net goods. That being said, because of their necessity, there is always the chance that malefactors can use them for nefarious purposes.

There is an intersection between the Black Swan and the Tyranny of the minority in that the former can sometimes lead to the latter. Consider the George Floyd case, in which a rogue cop placed his knee on Floyd’s neck possibly causing his death. Chauvin’s actions was a Black Swan, the summer or rioting that ensued were predicated on that action. The obeisance of the political class to the mayhem was perpetrated by the rioters (i.e. “defunding the police”) was an example of Minority Tyranny.

According to Taleb (who is an Orthodox Christian by the way), majority cultures have a tendency to submit to insane fads when a dedicated minority demands special privileges. Taleb pegs this number at three to four percent of the population. This is, in essence, the critical mass that is needed to effect change. Like a chemical reaction, however, the substrate will not change unless acted upon by an extraneous agent; this can be either a change in atmospheric conditions or an enzyme. In the case of aggrieved minorities agitating for change, the exogenous factors are dedication, militancy, and propaganda. Timing and location are necessary elements as well. Such tactics are particularly effective in Western, liberal societies, especially those foolishly dedicated to “emancipatory politics” (a concept which has been commented upon by Steven Turley –also an Orthodox Christian).

The thesis as I understand it goes roughly along these lines: first, Group X feels marginalized. Then, if they feel sufficiently empowered to agitate for special privileges, they do so. The majority group (Y) will initially push back on their perceived need for special demands. If however, Y has itself internalized the concept of emancipatory politics, their resistance to the demands of X will begin to crumble. In the case of homosexual rights, the drive for “emancipation” took decades. With the transgender phenomenon, this took a mere fraction of the time (not even a decade).

In other words, once the wall of normalcy has been breached by X, other aggrieved groups will take up the baton and start making demands for themselves. In fact, the second group (X’) may have an easier time of it. Consider the case for gay “marriage” (which for our purposes we will call X). In the 2008 presidential election, Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, both of whom were running for the Democrat Party’s nomination, each openly stated their opposition to legalizing homosexual unions. By the 2020 election cycle, the moral consensus had degenerated so far that one Democrat presidential aspirant (Julian Castro), ridiculously stated that he would not rest until “trans men” could have abortions.

Notice also how Castro immediately went to the right to abortion. In earlier presidential campaigns, the Democrat candidate always hedged his or her sympathy for abortion by couching it in euphemisms mixed with regret (and not a little bit of religiosity thrown in for good measure). Bill Clinton for instance said that it should be “safe, legal, and rare.” Other candidates talked about how this “procedure” should only be undertaken only after a woman had “consulted her God” or “her doctor”. Castro instead went to the end stage of abortion and instead of mockery, he was met with loud applause. Thus the transgender “community” (X’ in this example) was able to have its case normalized by society in less than a decade. The heavy lifting for the normalization of abnormality had been already done by homosexual activists.

So, is all lost?

No. Taleb suggests that all it takes for the normal majority culture to win is to not submit to the insane demands of grievance groups in the first place. Or the second place. His recommendation is to fight idiocy whenever it first presents itself. And one can keep on fighting by simply refusing to accept the premises of the agitators, even if they have already won cultural or legal battles. One can do this by merely replying to the first insane demand by pointing out that the grievance mongers are being ridiculous. If that fails, one can then answer thusly: “Facts don’t care about your feelings” (credit to Ben Shapiro). Then, when the provocateur says that “you’re a racist” merely reply “I don’t care”.

In other words, resist the tyranny. Any way you can. Personally, I recommend a heavy dose of mockery as well. (Snowflakes are especially susceptible to hurt feelings. It totally upends everything they learned in college and thereby deflates their sense of importance.) Send these crybullies this clip from Monty Python’s Life of Brian:

That being said, Taleb’s courageous advice is easier said than done in liberal cultures. Our Achilles’ heel is liberalism, which began in the so-called Enlightenment. This seemingly admirable philosophy promulgated the foolish rationalism of emancipatory language in the first place. Imperceptibly at first, but nevertheless inevitably leading us to our present morass.

American culture, being largely Northern European Protestant and thus, unmoored from sacramental Christianity, was meritocratic from the start. As such, it was mostly inclined to fairness and tolerance (at least towards other Europeans). Hence, a wide variety of opinions were tolerated in all spheres of society. Indeed, such tolerance was necessary as the American founding stock had nobody else to rely upon for mutual support.

This made hereditary castes unlikely, which all in all, was rather beneficial. To put not to fine a point on it, “hire my brother-in-law”, one of the basic operating principles of Old World societies, was both foolish and unworkable in the New World. Especially if a family on the frontier or a small-trade business in the village was to survive. Even the large planters, the closest America ever got to having a “lord of the manor” class in America, had to rely on their wits and ingenuity to survive. (If you don’t believe me, go to Thomas Jefferson’s plantation in Virginia and you’ll see that not only was he a great political philosopher but a great inventor as well.)

To be sure, none of the eminences of the Enlightenment (save perhaps Rousseau) envisioned the present madness. For one thing, all men and women were bound by the laws of nature from the beginning of time. The Age of the Enlightenment was no different. Our own Founding Fathers may have been classical liberals but they were under no illusions about the benevolence of man. It was for this reason that they drafted a Constitution which placed as many constraints on magistrates as they did. The Jacobins in France however were quite the opposite in mentality. They actually believed in the concept of the tabula rasa (blank slate) and the “noble savage”. (Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence was under no illusions about the “merciless savages” which populated America’s western frontier.)

Meritocracy therefore, demands tolerance (up to a point). Benjamin Franklin was not only wise but incredibly pragmatic. He had to be. And so were the majority of our Founding Fathers. And they set up a template of meritocratic sensibility that served America well for two centuries. This made us incredibly wealthy, perhaps the wealthiest nation of all time. It also made many of us inert and soft. It lulled us into believing that all men were essentially good. Worse, it caused us as a nation to lose our moral bearings as we crossed the boundaries of common sense and decency.

The original sin of slavery caused many to confuse race with sexual identity. First, we were told that women were “oppressed” and they needed to be “set free” to compete with men on an equal footing. Then homosexuals demanded special rights (although to be honest, nobody saw the idea of gay “marriage” as a goal). And now we come to transsexuals. At each step of the way, the American Protestant ethos demanded that we listen to these groups and compare their “struggle” with that of African-Americans.

Now, I realize that this makes our elites sound stupid. And, to be honest, the vast majority of our intellectual and academic classes are incredibly ignorant. Of this, there can be no doubt. No longer are fancy degrees proxies for intelligence and those middle-class parents who foolishly send their children to college are throwing money down a rat-hole. (Even the so-called hard sciences are increasingly being stripped of all adherence to reality.)

Think of this group as the Outer Party -a collective of True Believers who uncritically swallow whatever myths are being spoon-fed them by the Corporate Media. They do so in order to desperately maintain a middling rung on the social ladder. The psychic income they receive from being lauded as being morally superior is a heady prospect as well.

But for some of the cognoscenti, there is an additional, more lucrative method to this madness. This is the Inner Party. They know the game is rigged and based on fantasy. But by loudly proclaiming allegiance to the grievance group du jour, the typical white liberal who falls within this particular stratum is not only broadcasting to the world at large that he is a virtuous man but he will have access to more economic benefits. To be sure, they may actually believe to a certain extent the empty bromides which they proclaim but they live their lives in complete contrast to their stated ideology. At any rate, they are able to climb higher on the social ladder –because they know that the game is rigged.

So yes, the embrace of victimology can be lucrative. At least for a minority of those who are willing to take the necessary steps. Think of all the nonsensical books put out by these elites or the cushy jobs they get by writing inane articles for the various digital media. But for the rest of the moral supremacists, there is little or no money to be made. So why do they do it, when they know deep down that what they believe is unsupported by reality? (And they will, sooner or later come to that realization.) One reason that I can think of right off the bat is that it can prevent a trip to the Human Resources department, where one will be forced to grovel before a Kamala Harris wannabe. By spending the better part of the day endlessly typing memos about being on the steering committee of the next LGBTQ+ gala or talking about next year’s Martin Luther King Day Parade, one inoculates him/her/xirself from that possibility.

Make no mistake: Taleb is correct. All one has to do is push back, gently at first but resolutely if need be. That being said, Taleb, a native of Lebanon, has the typical Levantine respect for reality. (Or the typical African, Asian, Latin American, Southern, or Eastern European respect for reality.) There are no demands for any of this emancipatory nonsense in Orthodox or Islamic lands. Unfortunately, we have no such luxury in America. Unlike most sensible people the world over, we actually have to fill out applications with “preferred pronouns”. And this is why we have to let men “who identify as women” sleep in battered women’s shelters. This insanity even afflicts our Congressmen, who cannot say the words “man” and “woman” thanks to the latest diktat from Speaker of the House Mdme DeFarge.

So, is all lost?

No, I don’t think so. Last August, I wrote about the previous years’ Supreme Court rulings. The predicate for that essay was the Court’s landmark ruling regarding the Electoral College. I commented as well on the disastrous Bostock decision, which enshrined transsexualism as a “right”. Perhaps surprising to many was how I was not all that concerned about it. The reason for my apathy was because when you get right to the nub of the matter, Bostock was predicated not only on emancipatory politics but on physical unreality. Hence my very real belief that it will collapse under the weight of its own absurdity.

I still hold to that. This is not to say that it will not cause a lot of damage to society on its way down. It will, for instance, significantly degrade women’s athletics (among other things). No doubt there will be other horrendous unintended consequences along the way. But reality has a way of reasserting itself. It always does. I imagine that in our next hot war, the United States military will be soundly defeated thanks to the insanity of women in combat or the insistence of having drag shows on aircraft carriers. And not to be undone in the insanity sweepstakes, the outfitting of pregnant women in specially-designed flight suits will certainly degrade unit cohesiveness. A significant portion of the general officers know this is nonsense but the patriarchal culture of the armed forces has been sufficiently decimated thanks to Obama. I can’t stress this enough: they know this is idiotic but they can do or say nothing about it.

As far as our military is concerned, the handwriting was already on the wall back in 2009, when in response to the Ft Hood massacre, Gen George Casey could only bring himself to utter inanities in response to that atrocity. For those who may not remember, the overriding concern for Gen Casey to the killing spree perpetrated by Maj Nidal Hassan was that this would result in “the loss of diversity” in the armed forces. His commander-in-chief could not even bring himself to call this an act of Islamic terrorism. Instead, President Obama called this it an example of “workplace violence”.

Taleb is not wrong. From the very start, we should have looked at grievance groups and laughed in their faces when they first promulgated their nonsensical demands. And because we were good, tolerant ‘Muricans who believe in “diversity”, we didn’t. And so now we are suffering because the inmates are running the asylum. That doesn’t mean though that reality will not reassert itself.

It will. Or we will go the way of all empires in their terminal, degenerate stages. These are the only two options. End of story.


  1. In the collection of samizdat From Under The Rubble, Alexander Solzhenitsyn argued that the way to survive was to never admit The Lie. This he wrote when the Soviet Union bestrode half the world like a colossus. A few short years later, it was gone. Solzhenitsyn, of course, was also Orthodox.

    Interestingly, in the late 70s or early 80s Bernard Levin, the chief columnist of the The Times, predicted the fall of the Soviet Union within his lifetime. When I read the words, I thought he had been overindulging in the juice of the grape. Yet, within a few short years, the USSR was gone while Levin lived to write another day.
    However, Mr Levin was not Orthodox – neither of the Christian nor the Jewish variety.

  3. WhoToBelieve says

    Sidney Powell’s attorneys argued this week that no “reasonable person” could believe the “inherently improbable” and “outlandish” voter fraud claims that she was making in public. Further, that when she alleged there was systemic fraud it was merely her expressing her opinion. This was in response to Dominion Voting Systems charging Powell with knowingly deceiving people. Seems Powell was only looking out for herself, and her bank account while she took us all on a two month long ride. How utterly depressing. Lin Wood, her “partner”, seems like a straight-up double agent sent by the Dems to explode the GOP from within. I don’t understand how Giuliani allowed these clowns to get anywhere near the president!

    • Gail Sheppard says

      You’ll have to back up your statement that Powell’s attorneys argued that no reasonable person could believe the “inherently improbable” and “outlandish” voter fraud claims that she was making in public. That’s quite a mouthful, even for attorneys!

      They always file a motion to dismiss, as you have to file a motion to dismiss before filing an “answer” to the complaint.

      Powell’s attorneys wrote that a judge must determine whether her statements could be proved and if “reasonable people” would believe they were factual, given the context and other factors surrounding the comments.

      I remember Powell saying, “I don’t make claims I can’t back up. – I think she will be vindicated.

      • George Michalopulos says

        I agree with Gail. I am convinced that Powell and Wood will be vindicated. Already, the vast majority of Republicans and over 1/3 of Democrats believe that there was massive & widespread fraud in the election last November.

      • WhoToBelieve says

        Gail thank you for this link. I initially read about this on, but still held out some hope that maybe it was miscontrued/spun-out-of-proportion. I want to believe like you do that Sidney has some ace up her sleeve, but then if it’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth – you have to be naive to keep looking in other places.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          Saying of mine: If you bet on a horse, you should allow it to finish the race.

          • WhoToBelieve says

            Gail I have had this same outlook regarding letting thins play out, or the horse race to finish since Nov 6, 2020. At the same time, over these past 3-4 months it seemed that everyone’s head around me was exploding. But now those What would the “finish line” look like in this case? She needs to present Evidence and present into now, to demonstrate that this case has merit – otherwise it will all be buried in the daily news cycles. I sincerely believe this woman was trying to raise illicit millions from the TRUMP faithful. I have read some articles, and it looks like ok the months leading up tot he Capitol events she raised enough money to pay for many many lifetimes. She is a parasite on the movement, and we need to widen up and do what’s really necessary to make trump 2024 and beyond possible.

            • Gail Sheppard says

              If she was trying to raise “illicit millions from the Trump faithful” I would love to see evidence of this. I was part of “Stop the Steal” and I didn’t.

        • Why would anyone who is interested in truth ever pay attention to anything on

          I’m serious. I don’t get it. They’re not even shy about their blatant leftist bias anymore — they flaunt it in everyone’s faces and now challenge: “So what? What are you going to do about it?”

          Are there really people out there who still believe that CNN of all places is a serious journalistic outfit? Why? Today CNN is exactly where Правда and Известия were 50-60 years ago. Not joking at all.

          • Gail Sheppard says

            The first thing that popped into my mind, as well. (However, I have heard rumors that Trump bought CNN.)

          • WhoToBelieve says


            I have noticed’s bias many, many times. And when I watch the channel itself, I’m particularly turned off by Don Lemon – who seems to champion any kind of illegality so long as it’s perpetrators are on his ideological side. However, I find that the “straight news” section of CNN is still preferable to NYtimes, or Wapo, or WSJ, or any of the so called National papers perhaps because cnn’s online news is a lot older than theirs. At the end of the day, if some event of national “import” is happening , whether it’s a bomb/shooting/war etc, it’s usually Cobb your turn on first.

    • I think that this is usually called ‘damage control.’ She is looking at a huge payout to Dominion if she loses this case, so…

  5. “It will. Or we will go the way of all empires in their terminal, degenerate stages. These are the only two options. End of story.”

    This is true. However, I’m very puzzled as to why you seem to believe option A (reality will assert itself) will win out. Seems painfully obvious to me that option B (we will go the way of all empires in their terminal, degenerate stages) will win. Has there ever been a society that went as far down the degenerate road as we have, and then backed it up?? None that I can think of.

    • George Michalopulos says

      Alan, thank you for pointing this out.

      Here is what I mean by “reality will always win out” in the end. Because it does It just may not be the people or culture in question who will become realistic. If they don’t, then another culture, people or nation will step in and impose reality for them.

      The soyification of the Western male has created a vacuum, one which will be filled by virile men from other lands –usually Islamic ones.

  6. Michael Bauman says

    So, George, Islam = Virile?

    • George Michalopulos says

      Michael, have you seen the typical millennial man who sits all day at the local coffeehouse? These soyboys make me look like John Wayne (and I’m twice their age). And I’m only being a little facetious. Testosterone levels in men have been falling precipitously. The average man fifty years ago had more than twice the T-levels that his peer has today. It’s shocking, actually.

      As for your critique, all I can respond is thusly: If not virile, then definitely patriarchal. At the end of the day, it’s the same thing.

    • Not Islam, but you can’t deny the virility of Islamic countries. Compare their birth rates to ours. Look at the ability of the Afghans, Syrians, and Yemenis, and their ability to fight against the odds for year after year. Middle Eastern culture has a grasp on manliness and resilience that we in the West have lost, or even jettisoned.

        • George Michalopulos says

          I don’t disagree at all, Michael.

          It’s amazing to me how fast the cultural Marxist paradigm is collapsing within just two months since the inauguration.

          To steel myself, I will take Solzhenytin’s advice (as put out here by somebody else): “Do not accept the Lie”.

  9. Austin Martin says

    1) It’s a special kind of conceit when the older generation refers to the younger as “snowflakes”, because it was that very older generation that invented the term. They are the ones that insisted their kids always have excessive self esteem, and now they mock us, as though we ourselves invented the concept. It’s really perverse.

    2) The cultural wars are spiritual. The problem with the powers, whatever you may want to call them, is not merely that they have a bad ideology. The problem is that they are of a demonic nature. If you view the ruling caste as demons, their behaviors make far more sense than if they are just incompetent and stupid. They want to hurt us for the sake of hurting us.

    Consider Kamala. She’s a Hindu married to a Jew. Both of those groups worship demons. It’s not an accident that a fly landed on Pence in the debate.

    The reason the ruling caste can only speak falsehood is because truth burns demons. Demons can never speak something entirely true. There always has to be a false element to it, because truth sets a standard for how to act.

    The inverse of this is that you can tell what demons are like by looking at the likes of AOC and Stacey Abrams. I think it’s within plausibility to assume that demons think they are in the moral right and will spend eternity bitter at God, as though he were an oppressive capitalist who wants to control everything.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      I think you’re absolutely right about the “esteem” thing, Austin. I remember in the 80s when our kids went to special classes for it.

    • George Michalopulos says

      Austin, your critique of the older (mine) generation has merit. We Boomers bear much responsibility for the way we conducted our lives, raised our children, and contorted culture to our whims.

      That much is correct.

      That said, the critique of many people (not just Boomers or others) about the sexual distortions that exist at present (and this includes hormonal levels in both women as well as men) is of scientific interest. It’s also of cultural, sociological, and historical interest as well. To not comment upon it because of shame or hurt feelings is unconscionable.

      • Hormonal levels in males may be about to be further skewed
        Injecting MEN with the female hormone progesterone
        could reduce the severity of their COVID-19, study claims

        ‘ Experts recruited 40 male patients who had been hospitalised with COVID-19
        Half were treated with a five-day course of progesterone injections twice daily
        This group scored 1.5 points better on a 7-point clinical scale after seven days
        While results were promising, the team said
        larger clinical trials will be needed ‘

            Anyway, who needs female hormones to treat COVID-19
            when Vitamin D, Zinc, HCQ and Ivermectin are all effective;
            none of which work to reduce the sperm count…

      • Austin Martin says

        Yes! This is true! Men today have 50% less testosterone than previous generations. This is a major health problem, and it’s never talked about. There are a variety of factors, but birth control is a major one, because the hormones get into the water system. Another cause is soy.

        And yet we think we can win a war against China and Russia. Today the Atlantic allies dumped sanctions on China, who responded with sanctions themselves and strengthened their alliance with Russia and North Korea.

        • George Michalopulos says

          Austin, soy is definitely a cause as are female hormones which are dumped into the sewage system (thereby being ingested by fish who are at the bottom of the food chain). I believe high fructose corn syrup is a factor. (It increases caloric intake thereby increasing obesity.)

          Nor can one discount the psychotropic drugs that young boys are being force-fed in order to make them more compliant.

          This is just the tip of the iceberg.

        • It’s the repression of masculinity that feminist/matriarchal culture imposes and demands of men. Birth rates plummet. Marriage becomes a joke. LGBT comes out of the woodwork.

          In short, it’s an absence of patriarchy. Loss of the dominant role means loss of the will to live and reproduce.

    • Re: “snowflakes” – The ‘term’ and the ‘concept’ are not the same.
      One is a descriptive label, the other is the ding an sich (thing-in-itself).

      The label itself is a accurate metaphor for those who melt when the heat is on,
      which all too many of the younger generation do.
      However, you are correct in pointing out that
      the previous generation schooled them to be so.

        Well you got a point there. I never thought of “snowflake” meaning fragile.

  12. CJ Hopkins: The “Unvaccinated” Question

    ‘ So, the New Normals are discussing the Unvaccinated Question. What is to be done with us? No, not those who haven’t been “vaccinated” yet. Us. The “Covidiots.” The “Covid deniers.” The “science deniers.” The “reality deniers.” Those who refuse to get “vaccinated,” ever.

    There is no place for us in New Normal society. The New Normals know this and so do we. To them, we are a suspicious, alien tribe of people. We do not share their ideological beliefs. We do not perform their loyalty rituals, or we do so only grudgingly, because they force us to do so.

    We traffic in arcane “conspiracy theories,” like “pre-March-2020 science,” “natural herd immunity,” “population-adjusted death rates,” “Sweden,” “Florida,” and other heresies.

    They do not trust us. We are strangers among them. They suspect we feel superior to them. They believe we are conspiring against them, that we want to deceive them, confuse them, cheat them, pervert their culture, abuse their children, contaminate their precious bodily fluids, and perpetrate God knows what other horrors.

    So they are discussing the need to segregate us, how to segregate us, when to segregate us, in order to protect society from us. In their eyes, we are no more than criminals, or, worse, a plague, an infestation.

    In the words of someone (I can’t quite recall who), “getting rid of the Unvaccinated is not a question of ideology. It is a question of cleanliness,” or something like that. (I’ll have to hunt down and fact-check that quote. I might have taken it out of context.)

    In Israel, Estonia, Denmark, Germany, the USA, and other New Normal countries, they have already begun the segregation process.

    In the UK, it’s just a matter of time. The WEF, WHO, EU, and other transnational entities are helping to streamline the new segregation system, which, according to the WEF,

    will need to be harmonized by a normative body, such as the WHO, to ensure that is ethical.”

    Here in Germany, the government is considering banning us from working outside our homes. We are already banned from flying on commercial airlines. (We can still use the trains, if we dress up like New Normals.)

    In the village of Potsdam, just down the road from Wannsee (which name you might recall from your 20th-Century history lessons), we are banned from entering shops and restaurants. (I’m not sure whether we can still use the sidewalks, or whether we have to walk in the gutters.)

    In Saxony, we are forbidden from attending schools. At the Berliner Ensemble (the theater founded by Bertolt Brecht and Helene Weigel, lifelong opponents of totalitarianism and fascism), we are banned from attending New Normal performances.

    In the USA, we are being banned by universities. Our children are being banned from public schools.

    In New York, the new “Excelsior Pass” will allow New Normals to attend cultural and sports events (and patronize bars and restaurants, eventually) secure in the knowledge that the Unvaccinated have been prevented from entering or segregated in an “Unvaccinated Only” section.

    The pass system, designed by IBM, which, if history is any guide, is pretty good at designing such systems (OK, technically, it was Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen Gesellschaft, IBM’s Nazi-Germany subsidiary), was launched this past weekend to considerable fanfare.

    And this is only the very beginning.

    Israel’s “Green Pass” is the model for the future, which makes sense, in a sick, fascistic kind of way. When you’re already an apartheid state, what’s a little more apartheid? Here’s a peek at what that looks like…

    OK, I know what the New Normals are thinking. They’re thinking I’m “misleading” people again. That I’m exaggerating. That this isn’t really segregation, and certainly nothing like “medical apartheid.”

    After all (as the New Normals will sternly remind me), no one is forcing us to get “vaccinated.” If we choose not to, or can’t for medical reasons, all we have to do is submit to a “test” — you know, the one where they ram that 9-inch swab up into your sinus cavities — within 24 hours before we want to go out to dinner, or attend the theater or a sports event, or visit a museum, or attend a university, or take our children to school or a playground, and our test results will serve as our “vaccine passports!”

    We just present them to the appropriate Covid Compliance Officer, and (assuming the results are negative, of course) we will be allowed to take part in New Normal society just as if we’d been “vaccinated.”

    Either way, “vaccine” or “test,” the New Normal officials will be satisfied, because the tests and passes are really just stage props. The point is the display of mindless obedience.

    Even if you take the New Normals at their word, if you are under 65 and in relatively good health, getting “vaccinated” is more or less pointless, except as a public display of compliance and belief in the official Covid-19 narrative (the foundation stone of the New Normal ideology).

    Even the high priests of their “Science” confess that it doesn’t prevent you spreading the “plague.” And the PCR tests are virtually meaningless, as even the WHO finally admitted. (You can positive-PCR-test a pawpaw fruit…but you might want to be careful who you tell if you do that.)

    In contrast to the “vaccine” and the “test” themselves, the forced choice between them is not at all meaningless. It is no accident that both alternatives involve the violation of our bodies, literally the penetration of our bodies. It doesn’t really matter what is in the “vaccines” or what “results” the “tests” produce. The ritual is a demonstration of power, the power of the New Normals (i.e., global capitalism’s new face) to control our bodies, to dominate them, to violate them, psychologically and physically.

    Now, don’t get all excited, my “conspiracy theorist” friends. I haven’t gone full QAnon just yet. Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab are not sitting around together, sipping adrenochrome on George Soros’ yacht, dreaming up ways to rape people’s noses. This stuff is built into the structure of the system. It is a standard feature of totalitarian societies, cults, churches, self-help groups, and…well, human society, generally.

    Being forced to repeat a physical action which only makes sense within a specific ideology reifies that ideology within us. There is nothing inherently diabolical about this. It is a basic socialization technology. It is how we socialize our children. It is why we conduct weddings, baptisms, and bar mitzvahs. It is how we turn young men and women into soldiers. It is how actors learn their blocking and their lines. It is why the Nazis held all those rallies. It is why our “democracies” hold elections.

    It is also basic ceremonial magic…but that’s a topic for a different column.

    The issue, at the moment, is the Unvaccinated Question, and the public rituals that are being performed to make the New Normal ideology “reality,” and what to do about those of us who refuse to participate in those rituals, who refuse to forswear “old normal” reality and convert to New Normalism so that we can function in society without being segregated, criminalized, or “diagnosed” as “sociopathic” or otherwise psychiatrically disordered.

    For us “conspiracy-theorizing reality deniers,” there is no getting around this dilemma. This isn’t Europe in the 1930s. There isn’t anywhere to emigrate to … OK, there is, temporarily, in some of the US states that have been staging rebellions, and other such “old normal” oases, but how long do you think that will last?

    They’re already rolling out the “mutant variants,” and God only knows what will happen when the long-term effects of the “vaccines” kick in.

    No, for most of us denizens of the global capitalist empire, it looks like the New Normal is here to stay. So, unless we are prepared to become New Normals, we are going to have to stand and fight. It is going to get rather ugly, and personal, but there isn’t any way to avoid that.

    Given that many New Normals are our friends and colleagues, or even members of our families, it is tempting to believe that they will “come to their senses,” that “this is all just a hysterical overreaction,” and that “everything will go back to normal soon.”

    This would be a monumental error on our parts…very possibly a fatal error.

    Totalitarian movements, when they reach this stage, do not simply stop on their own. They continue to advance toward their full expressions, ultimately transforming entire societies into monstrous mirror-images of themselves, unless they are opposed by serious resistance. There is a window at the beginning when such resistance has a chance. That window is still open, but it is closing, fast.

    I can’t tell you how best to resist, but I can tell you it starts with seeing things clearly, and calling things, and people, exactly what they are.

    Let’s not make the same mistake that other minorities have made throughout history when confronted with a new totalitarian ideology. See the New Normals for what they are, maybe not deep down in their hearts, but what they have collectively become a part of, because it is the movement that is in control now, not the rational individuals they used to be.

    Above all, recognize where this is headed, where totalitarian movements are always headed. (See. e.g., Milton Mayer’s They Thought They Were Free: The Germans 1933-45.)

    No, the Unvaccinated are not the Jews and the New Normals are not flying big Swastika flags, but totalitarianism is totalitarianism, regardless of which Goebbelsian Big Lies, and ideology, and official enemies it is selling. The historical context and costumes change, but its ruthless trajectory remains the same.

    Today, the New Normals are presenting us with a “choice,” (a) conform to their New Normal ideology or (b) social segregation. What do you imagine they have planned for us tomorrow? ‘

  15. Dr Vernon Coleman: The Horrors of Social Credit

    Another thoughtful talk from An Old Man In A Chair

    [Video 16:41]

  16. Posted from another forum:

    I posted a lot back in March/April of 2020 about how the response to COVID was an insane overreaction that would deal permanent damage to free society and human health/life. Even on here on RVF there were many who took the opposite stance a year ago. I haven’t posted as much about anything COVID related for most of the past year or so. I’ve just been witnessing everything play out along with everyone else. It has been thoroughly depressing watching the entire world succumb to complete insanity. If I was without faith in Christ I believe I would be irreversibly and suicidally depressed and blackpilled given the state of the world and its apparent trajectory. But faith sustains me in these times. We were promised trial and tribulation in this world. And it is certainly upon us. But He is with us always, even unto the end of the world (Matt. 28:20). You can take comfort in that promise every day.

    In regards to these vaccines specifically, I have been trying to figure out what exactly “they” are planning. Are the vaccines themselves meant to directly begin a depopulation agenda through wide-scale die-off months or years down the line? Are they intended to induce widespread sterilization? Are they actually an inoculation against a yet-to-be released super virus that will kill off all the unvaccinated? Are they simply a means of exerting further control and forcing compliance on the population? There are many possibilities.

    My best guess after a lot of thinking and reading is that the vaccines are the precursors to and possible causative agents of the actual Mark of the Beast. The mRNA modification we see in these current vaccines may itself cause tremendous health damage down the line, or it may not. But once this technology is accepted we can expect to see more and more of it. And if the elite have their way they will soon be injecting the entire population with synthetic mRNA on a regular basis. Sooner or later (probably sooner) there will inevitably be widespread, “unforeseen” horrible side effects from these injections. Thousands and soon millions of people will develop disfiguring tumors and/or other ghastly symptoms, or will simply drop dead. And by this point over 90% of the population will probably have taken them. Mass fear at that point is an understatement. What is to be done then?

    The elite will ride to the rescue with their solution: an injection or an implant that modifies your DNA to resist the effects of the previous mRNA injections. And of course, that’s not all. It will do a whole lot more, they promise. It might even be sold as giving you perfect health. It could be combined with a simultaneous “alien revelation” (the technology itself could be presented as a gift from benevolent, godlike aliens who intervened to save humanity during our greatest crisis). By this point people would be so desperate, fearful and traumatized they will clamor for this treatment, this mark of the beast (and of course it must have a visual component on the head or the hand to show those who received it, much like the idea of the vaccine passport that is currently in its infancy) . They will not care they in taking this DNA modification they will no longer be human, exchanging their god-given DNA (the seed of Adam) for some synthetic man-made creation. Being no longer human, they can no longer be united with Jesus Christ, who as both God and Man serves as the bridge that connects fallen human beings to God. But those who take the mark are no longer humans and thus cannot cross the bridge. This is perhaps why and how the mark of the beast ensures eternal damnation: those who willingly take it choose to renounce their humanity, and thus can no longer be atoned for by the saving blood of Christ.

    I’m not saying this is absolutely what is happening, but something like this is my current best guess. It’s otherwise inexplicable how utterly hellbent they are on getting absolutely everyone to take these insane vaccines. There is a very good reason they want as many people as possible vaccinated. We just don’t yet know why. But these people are totally evil and they are playing the long game and have been for centuries. Everything that has happened in the past year has simply been their plans kicking into high gear. We can only expect this to continue and probably to get worse. We have long passed the point where we could write what has transpired off as an error or a mistake. This is being done intentionally, all of it. This is all part of a hidden agenda that’s been planned for decades. They are working toward a goal, an endgame. And all we can say for sure is that injecting everyone with synthetic mRNA is a HUGE part of their plan, because they are pushing it harder than anything else they have with COVID after a year of constant brainwashing and demoralization. The entire purpose behind COVID and the lockdowns led up to this. Everything they did was a justification for normalizing the regular injection of healthy people with these experimental concoctions. This is exactly what they wanted. And they will only go further with it in the months and years to come, until at some point, probably sooner than we think possible, we will see billions of people walking around with some sort of 666 mark on their face and hand.

    Do not take the vaccines.

    Do not take the mark.

    You will endure horrible times in the years to come. But do not lose faith.

    Christ has already prevailed. This was all foretold. Everything that transpires is for the ultimate glory of God.

    He is with us always, even unto the end of the world.

  20. The government is preparing compulsory education
    programs for Greeks “so that they are not racist”!

    A shocking revelation was made by the married head of the financial office of Prime Minister Alexis Patelis in an article in a pro-government media.

    Specifically, Mr. Patelis revealed that part of the money from the Recovery Fund will go to “horizontal (ss. Another word for compulsory) training programs” so that Greeks do not “discriminate”, ie not be “racist” against immigrants, LGBTQI etc.

    Mr. Patelis mentions in his article:


    As LOATKI [LGBTQI ] I understand the distinctions. There is a large, horizontal training program for workers and employers against discrimination in all its forms (gender, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc.). “Both in the private and public sectors.”

    In short, instead of the money from the Recovery Fund going to the real economy and the Greeks who need it, it will go to “counselors” and NGOs who will give lectures to the poor and hungry Greeks about how “racist” they are.

    There are people who do not have bread on the table.
    But, there are LGBTQI counsellors to be stuffed…

  21. Number of women losing babies after Vax increases by 366%

    ‘ Losing a new born is a heart breaking endeavour, as is the pain of losing an unborn child. Which is why we’re both saddened and shocked to bring you the latest update on the number of unborn and newborn children to lose their lives as a result of the mothers receiving one of the Covid-19 vaccines in the United Kingdom.

    The Government have released weekly reports on adverse reactions to the experimental Covid-19 vaccines, the first of which covered data inputted to the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme from the 9th December 2020 through to the 24th January 2021. Their latest report (find it here), which is the seventh to be released covers data inputted to the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme from the 9th December 2020 though to the 7th March 2021.

    Just six weeks separate the first and seventh report, and the shocking increase in the number of women losing their unborn and newborn child in that time due to having either the Pfizer or AstraZeneca Covid vaccine is appalling.

    This was the Governments own advice upon emergency approval of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine –


    There are no or limited amount of data from the use of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2.
    Animal reproductive toxicity studies have not been completed. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine
    BNT162b2 is not recommended during pregnancy.
    For women of childbearing age, pregnancy should be excluded before vaccination. In addition, women of childbearing age should be advised to avoid pregnancy for at least 2 months after their second dose.

    We told you about this back in December, as the Governments own advice also included comments on breast-feeding and fertility which were as follows –


    It is unknown whether COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 is excreted in human milk. A risk to
    the newborns/infants cannot be excluded. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 should not be used
    during breast-feeding.


    It is unknown whether COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 has an impact on fertility.’

    It is because of this advice released by the UK Government that we were so shocked to see in the first released report of adverse reactions to the Covid vaccines, using data inputted to the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme up to the 24th January 2021 a total of 4 women had suffered a miscarriage as a result of having the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.

    As well as a total of 2 women losing their unborn child as result of having the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.

    We’re still unable to answer why these women were given one of the Covid vaccines against the Governments own advice. But what’s truly shocking is how much this number has increased in the 6 weeks that have unfolded since.

    According to the seventh report released by the UK Government on adverse reactions to the Covid vaccines, using data inputted to the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme up to the 7th March 2021, there has been a 475% increase since the 24th January in the number of women who have lost their unborn child after having the Pfizer vaccine, bringing the total to 23. This is devastating.

    Sadly there is also now 1 report of a premature baby sadly dying after the mother had the Pfizer vaccine.

    The AstraZeneca jab has also caused unnecessary pain to expectant mothers. As of the 7th March there has been a 150% increase since the 24th January in the number of women to suffer a miscarriage, bringing the total to 5.

    Tragically there has also been 1 still birth reported to the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme after the mother had the AstraZeneca vaccine, but shockingly this has not been labelled as a fatality.

    The question is why are we seeing these numbers when the Governments own advice was that pregnant women should not have the vaccine?

    Well we started digging and found that the Government has since updated it’s original advice to the following –

    4.6 Fertility, pregnancy and lactation

    There is limited experience with use of the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 in pregnant women.
    Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy,
    embryo/foetal development, parturition or post-natal development. Administration of
    the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 in pregnancy should only be considered when the potential
    benefits outweigh any potential risks for the mother and foetus.

    This is criminal! We dread to think what sort of numbers of these events we will see in the weeks to come.

    Informed consent is important, we don’t believe these women were informed in the slightest, and now they will have to suffer the eternal pain of losing their unborn or newborn child. ‘

    Comment update: ‘ The actual latest Yellow-Card pubication, 2 days prior to this article, was for cumulative data to 21 March 2021 which show spontaneous abortions totalling 13 and 32 for AstraZeneca and Pfizer respectively – grand total of 45 – an increase of 10 for the week. ‘

    COVID Vaccines – the *new* way to kill unborn and newborn babies!

          My guess is that generally, an archdiocese received Covid (hush) money ‘crucial’ to floating their archdiocese. Specifically, certain bishops might have an incentive to receive more (or less) of these funds and their behavior reflects globalist expectations. If looked through the lens of previous ‘revolutions’ such as those in the Middle East and the Ukraine, the 2021 ‘election’ and events leading toward it make more sense.

            All: everybody and everything has a breaking point. It depends on the time and circumstances.

            One thing we can be sure of is the overarching tendency of the Left overreaching. That is happening now, btw, in the Congress and the Blue States.

            Think of it this way: for all of Lenin’s evil genius in setting up the Soviet state, he overreached when he executed the royal martyrs. It struck terror in the hearts of the White resistance to be sure but it provoked a huge international backlash against Communism in general.

            Even though they were able to consolidate Communism in the former Russian Empire, they were not able to sustain international Communism in Bavaria, Hungary, Poland, Finland, Mexico, Spain and Greece. It also set the cause of Socialism back in the US.

            • Yes, because that international backlash against communism stopped all the Western financiers, bankers, and industrialists from heavily investing in the USSR, didn’t it?

              Communism failed in those other states because the people fought back, whether it was the Freikorps or Franco. The ‘global community’ would have been happy to see any and all of those nations sink under the wave of red terror.

    Anyone deemed a “case” or even just a contact of “case” who might be “infected” or possibly a “carrier” of any illness, not just the Chinese virus, would become a target of government officials in New York who would have leeway and discretion to respond as they see fit.

    The legislation specifically states that as long as the “opinion of the governor” dictates that a person is a threat, he or she could be removed from the home and placed in government “care” for as long as the governor sees fit.

    “Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee and complying with subdivision five of this section,” the bill further reads. ‘

  27. Lawyers to sue WHO for ‘misleading world over COVID-19 outbreak’ Consumer protection trial lawyer Reiner Fuellmich says agencies ‘knowingly misled governments across the world.’

    ‘ … “Based on the rules of criminal law, asserting false facts concerning the PCR tests or intentional misrepresentation, as conducted by Messrs. Drosten and Wieler and the WHO, this can only be interpreted as fraud,” he explained. “Based on the rules of the civil tort law, this translates into intentional infliction of damage.”

    He claimed that these people knew “the PCR tests cannot provide any information about infections, but asserted over and over, to the general public, that they can, with their counterparts all over the world repeating this.

    “They all knew and accepted that based on their recommendations, the governments of the world would decide on lockdowns, the rules for social distancing, and the mandatory wearing of masks, the latter representing a serious health hazard as more and more independent studies and expert statements show.

    “Under tort laws, all those harmed by these PCR test-induced lockdowns are entitled to full compensation for their losses,” he added. “In particular, there is a duty to compensate – that is a duty to pay damages – to companies and self-employed persons as a result of the lockdown and other measures.

    “In the meantime however, the anti-corona measures have caused and continue to cause such devastating damage to the world’s population’s health and its economy, that the crimes committed by Messrs. Drosten, Wieler, and the WHO, must be legally qualified as crimes against humanity, as defined in Section 7 of the International Criminal Code,” Fuellmich said. … ‘

    They are just running it a few years earlier than the plan says; however in 2017 Fauci said there would be a pandemic outbreak during Trump’s administration.

    How did he know?

    • Gail Sheppard says

      I think he said it was going to be a surprise. Surprise!!!

      He didn’t know gain-of-function research was being done in that lab. – He did.

      He didn’t have anything to do with the research. – He did.

      He wasn’t helping to fund this research through grants or anything, right? – He was.

      It’s not like he had a project plan or anything. – He did.

      Yeah, but he didn’t petition the NIH to lift the ban on gain-of-function research in December 2017, did he? – Yes, he did.

      He and other scientists in the NIH weren’t working on this research directly with the Chinese. – Yes, they were.

      It’s not like he knew there would be an outbreak. – He said there was going to be an outbreak.

      When the outbreak occurred, we were caught off guard and did not hear about it until months later. Fauci couldn’t have known, could he?
      – How could he not?

      Although the PCR tests existed as a result of SARs, the CDC wasn’t equipped to handle the testing needs of a wide-scale pandemic. It couldn’t have been Fauci’s fault that another department within HHS was caught unaware, right? – Of course, it was.

        And a whole lotta personal research she does on her own.

        At the risk of embarrassing La Galina, she doesn’t take anything for granted. She spends (literally) hours doing the research.

        • I’m glad to hear she is so committed to researching, George. Too many people uncritically accept whatever supports their existing beliefs.

          I think of a quote from my scientific hero, Richard Feynman, though he might as well be paraphrasing a church father: “The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.”

          • George Michalopulos says

            I am too. There’s a lot of give-and-take at Dom Sheppardskoye. Very little chance of confirmation bias. She’s not afraid to go where the evidence leads.

            I like that about her.

      • What type of programs? Excuse me, but without further specification it’s not very different from a person saying they know a lot about aviation because they did legal work for Boeing.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          I guess you could look it up on LinkedIn! LOL You could do the research and challenge me. Or you could look at the dates I’ve posted things and marvel at what a soothsayer I am! Short of doing the work, however, you’re not going to know.

            And that’s a sad thing isn’t it? We no longer have access to free, fair and transparent information, do we?

            Thanks to consolidation, there are now only six mega-conglomerates from where we get all our information, entertainment and infotainment from. The news is curated rather than reported. If they choose to lie they don’t actually lie to us outright by design but but structure or by omission.

            • What’s even sadder is that people don’t want to do the work. They would rather trust the wrong information they get from trusted sources such as Professor Neil Ferguson; who they trust because the UK Government says he is to be trusted because he is the top man in the field, despite him having exactly zero qualifications in biology or medicine or statistics or prophecy and who has made lots and lots of prophecies and predictions all of which turned out to be hugely catastrophically and ruinously wrong at vast and increasingly vaster expense to society, the economy and the entire body politic of the planet.

                  Or Fauci. If you’d like to know how execrable of a scientist he is, read Randy Shilts’ book And the Band Played On. Also read Michael J Fumento’s The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS.

                  Fauci will be remembered in history for being our version of Trofim Lysenko, the Soviet botanist/biologist whose wacky evolutionary theories helped turn Russia from being the Breadbasket of Europe to becoming a basket case.

    Galina, what are you trying to say? That he lied to us? Perish the thought!

  33. Dr. Ryan Cole Blows The Whole COVID-19 Propaganda Away

    ‘ Dr. Ryan Cole is the CEO and Medical Director of Cole Diagnostics, one of the largest independent labs in the State of Idaho. Dr. Cole has conducted over 100,000 Covid-19 lab tests and treated over 350,000 patients over his medical career. ‘

    [30 minute video]

    Bullet Points:

    Coronavirus infections are seasonal
    Average COVID-19 age of death 78.6 years. Average annual US age of death historically 78.6 years.
    Face mask wearing outdoors is absolute insanity. No study shows any super-spreader event outdoors. The best mask of all is your immune system.
    There is no such thing as cold and flu season. There is only low vitamin D season.
    Inflammatory (cytokine) storm cannot be controlled without adequate vitamin D levels.
    Massive numbers of Americans have low vitamin D levels.
    96% of ICU patients are vitamin D deficient
    You cannot synthesize vitamin D from sunlight during fall and winter at 35-degrees north.
    You living in northern climates you are immune suppressed if you do not supplement with vitamin D during fall and winter.
    Scandinavian countries (Finland, Norway, Sweden) test their citizens twice a year for vitamin D and fortify 35 foods with vitamin D.
    Our population is left vulnerable to any seasonal viral infection without a public health program to promote vitamin D adequacy.
    There is not social disparity of care but the fact darker skin pigmentation inhibits sunshine vitamin D synthesis in the skin.
    Fauci says he personally takes 8000-9000 units of vitamin D per day but why has this has not become a public health message?
    The top three public health messages should be: 1- vitamin D; 2- vitamin D; 3- vitamin D.
    By law, the federal government cannot approve a vaccine if there is a proven treatment. That would be Ivermectin. Buy New $24.95 ($0.21 / Count) (as of 02:42 EDT – Details)
    The government is in bed with a vaccine company; both the federal government and Moderna co-hold patents on their RNA vaccine. The “fox is guarding the henhouse.”
    The drug Remdesivir only works during the first 2-3 days of the infection. It does not increase survival. It is like “peeing on a forest fire.”
    Four billion doses of Ivermectin have safely taken Ivermectin. Death rate decreased 70-90% in hospitals treating COVID-19 patients.
    Of the half million COVID-19 deaths in North America, there would be 375,000 less deaths if Ivermectin were used! Public health officials have blood on their hands. 100% of Ivermectin-treated patients don’t get ill. Works for all genetic variants.
    The vaccines are an experiment on society.
    The vaccine is unproven and long-term safety data is not even being
    You can get Ivermectin from doctors online. ‘

    Here’s an example of somebody “fighting the power”:

    We need to stand up to the bullies. Even though they control the Federal government, the bureaucracy, Academe, Hollywood, and have pretty much neutralized the churches, they ain’t that strong.


    Daily Mail got a copy of the laptop from hell. My guess is Bannon or Giuliani got it to them. I doubt anything will come of it except in political ads. It may be tempting to look up Hunter’s body of work online to try and identify family members or underage Chinese girls. I suggest that you listen to your higher angels on this question and refrain. The DM article contains an aside on the authentication of the laptop as Hunter’s.

    Some of the photos off the laptop published by the DM are a little risque, but nothing surprising. Can you imagine the press if this were Don Jr.?

  36. Could mRNA vaccines permanently alter DNA[?]
    Recent science suggests they might

    ‘ Research on SARS-CoV-2 RNA by scientists at Harvard and MIT has implications for how mRNA vaccines could permanently alter genomic DNA, according to Doug Corrigan, Ph.D., a biochemist-molecular biologist who says more research is needed. ‘

    Bad things are coming, therefore ‘more research is needed’?
    I would have thought that first we should stop what we are doing.

    Natonal Eeview, conservative inc. NR hates California but likes New York. New York is almost as left as California but since NR is headquarters in New York City They don’t t admit that Now York has lost more people and jobs to other states more so than California because it has crappy weather. Same goes ofr New Jersey and Illinois which are losing a higher percentage and sometimes more people than California. NR had this exodus issue on California. In fact they are phony since New York has lost more people in this decade next to Illinois. National Review authors like far left New York City because they can make money off the stock market there.

  41. Executive Order Canceling the Constitution

    ‘ On April 15, Preident Biden signed an Executive Order on Blocking Property with Respect to Specified Harmful Foreign Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation. Contrary to its title, this EO is not about Russia. It is designed to allow the Biden administration to deprive American citizens and organizations of their rights and property by arbitrarily linking those persons to real, imagined, or vaguely defined activities of the Russian government.

    The Biden administration unilaterally makes the determination and requires neither criminal acts nor intent. The punishment is blocking assets and a prohibition on any dealing with the accused person. Spouses and adult children of individuals found guilty by accusation under this EO are punished, too. …

    Notice the infinite reach these subsections afford. Those connected to a “Deprived Person” can receive the same designation, and so on. There is no limit to the number of iterations.

    “Deprived Persons” essentially become untouchables, as dealing with them in any way is expressly prohibited without additional determinations:

    Sec. 2. The prohibitions in section 1 of this order include:

    (a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

    (b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

    Giving legal representation, hosting the website, selling food, and giving medical care to a “Deprived Person” is automatically prohibited. Section 4 prohibits transactions that “cause a violation” of this EO, even absent intent or knowledge. This serves as a hint to pre-emptively cut ties with anyone the Biden regime targets. … ‘

    The USA is entering a very dark place…

    And what will happen come the autumn,
    when the vaccinated are exposed to the wild virus?

    • Gail Sheppard says

      In case any of you are wondering where Brendan is getting this information, it’s coming from EudraVigilance.

      “EudraVigilance is the system for managing and analyzing information on suspected adverse reactions to medicines that have been authorized or being studied in clinical trials in the European Economic Area (EEA). The European Medicines Agency (EMA) operates the system on behalf of the European Union (EU) medicines regulatory network.

      EudraVigilance supports the safe and effective use of medicines by facilitating: electronic exchange of individual case safety reports (ICSRs) between EMA, national competent authorities (NCAs), marketing authorization holders (MAHs), and sponsors of clinical trials in the EEA; early detection and evaluation of possible safety signals; better product information for medicines authorized in the EEA.”

      This electronic reporting is obligatory for marketing authorization holders and sponsors of clinical trials.

      So if you’re telling yourself this can’t be true, think again. Our friends across the pond are taking this very, very seriously while we’re struggling to figure out what Fauci is saying on a given day.

      COVID has a 99.97% survival rate. Apparently, these vaccines don’t. Why would you take one of these vaccines?

      You can’t rely on the advice of a particular doctor. Want to know why? Because they’re scared, too, and due to all the reporting requirements they have to follow just to get paid (one day I’ll write about the “Pay for Performace” issue), they’ve become only slightly better than a Google fact-checker when it comes to determining what’s really going on. Frankly, they don’t always want to know because if their provider group tells them to “push the vaccine,” that’s what they have to do.
