Amazon Demands In-Person Union Vote After Arguing Mail-In Ballots 'Raise Risk Of Fraud'

Amazon Demands In-Person Union Vote After Arguing Mail-In Ballots 'Raise Risk Of Fraud'

Surprise! Mail-in ballots raise the risk of fraud - according to Amazon.

In a Thursday filing with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Seattle-based online retail giant formally requested that a group of Alabama warehouse trying to form a union be required to vote in person, rather than by mail, according to Bloomberg. The company also requested a postponement of the vote so the NLRB can reconsider its earlier ruling which gives workers the next two months to vote by mail.

A group of workers at Amazon’s Bessemer, Alabama, warehouse filed paperwork in November for an election to decide whether to be represented by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, a rare step for workers at a company whose U.S. workforce isn’t unionized. The NLRB, which oversees union votes, earlier this month said the vote would be conducted by mail, citing standards set up during the pandemic to keep workers and staffers safe. -Bloomberg

Amazon objected to the NLRB's decision - saying they had 'unfairly dismissed the company's argument' that its facility is safer than the surrounding Jefferson County, which hit a 20% COVID-19 positive test rate earlier this month. The company argues that in-person voting would have "fully minimized any risk of transmission," and that the NLRB's decision on mail-in votes was "based on speculation and conjecture, and without ever balancing the purported risk of virus spread against the public policy that ‘strongly favors’ allowing employees to vote in person."

The world’s largest online retailer said that a mail election raised the risk of fraud and the coercion of workers. It also said the process would depress turnout, arguing that as many as 29% of its more than 5,800 employees eligible to vote wouldn’t do so or would return incorrectly completed ballots. -Bloomberg

 The solution, according to Amazon? Hold the election in a heated tent in the facility's parking lot in conjunction with software designed to ensure social distancing. The NLRB says conditions are too dangerous for in-person voting, and that acquiescing to Amazon's demands might give workers the impression that government employees conducting the vote might be receiving inappropriate benefits from the company.

"The most important factors in my decision are the safety of all election participants and the enfranchisement of all voters," wrote the NLRB's acting regional director in the Board's decision, adding "Both of these factors weigh in favor of a mail ballot election."

The REAL reason for the lock-downs: Prevent Worldwide Financial Anarchy


Pretty much all of us here know that Covid is really nothing more than the flu,  that it is nonsense to believe that masks protect us, and that lock downs are a joke that accomplish nothing. We’ve discussed all this in thousands of posts.  Yet, there are a Few Really Big Things in the article below that are new, at least to me.  So, I thought you might enjoy it.

======================================== =

The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

Is the covid ‘pandemic’ merely economic theatre?

Bringing together the US emergency bank lending crisis and the now massive Covid response, I’ve concluded that one of the main reasons it is happening, apart from the corporate looting, is because of a historic event, the USA’s economic collapse and the dollar’s demise, which started just weeks before this Covid operation kicked off, and has been put on hold by a world wide manufactured economic ‘freeze’.

The end of ‘Extend and Pretend’

A few months before Covid appeared, the Fed were busy pouring literally trillions of dollars into the US banks, to prevent inter-lending bank-runs which were starting to develop. These were the same tectonic fissures that developed prior to the 2008 crisis, where the banks became so distrustful of each other’s solvency, that they massively increased interest rates to each other to factor in the risk. If unsuppressed the lending rates would continue to rise, laying a path to bank failures and a contagion which would eventually derail the economy and undermine the dollar itself.

In September 2019 the Fed intervened in the repo. markets for four consecutive days, pumping $75 billion per day into the banks, as the inter-banking interest rate – the repo rate – peaked at a terrifying 10% [1]. If this level were allowed to contaminate regular highstreet lending, it would cause widespread debt defaults & insolvencies.

The dangers are far greater today because, unlike in 2008, Quantitive Easing (QE) has pushed the Fed to the limits of its credibility, and are forcing them into causing some serious currency debasement. If they continue with the forms of QE they are shackled to, then dollar debasement becomes a certainty in a US economy that is far more fragile & indebted generally and less able to cope.

The Fed must have known for a few years that QE was not returning the economy to economic normality, and that they were still trapped in the solvency crisis of 2008. Knowing this, the Fed were prepared for the latest crisis. They had made it possible to inject hundreds of billions of dollars into the banking system discreetly, unlike in 2008, without any additional Congressional fanfare, via the Financial Stability Oversight Council, formed in 2010.

They had given themselves almost unlimited funds and the resources of the entire government if necessary, to reassure the banks that collapse was impossible. This ‘rescue operation’ was being played out, relatively unreported except in the financial press, only weeks prior to the Covid flu appearing on the world stage. Issuing…

….. cumulative repo loans totalling more than $9 trillion to the trading houses on Wall Street that the Fed had been making from September 17 of 2019 – months before the onset of COVID-19 anywhere in the world…[2]

Unlike in 2008, this second use or continued use of mass Fed stimulus is not a new untested idea and, by using it again or continuing to use it more intensely to stabilise the banks, it would eventually lead the markets to conclude that we are locked in a never ending cycle of stimulus, which will inevitably end in hyperinflation and dollar collapse.

That is an uncontroversial economic fact, and will be the conclusion of the Fed’s current policy. In that context, an external ‘event’ could be critical in taking the spotlight off US finance and its woes.

The Fed will not want to exit repo operations until they are absolutely certain the market can stand on its own two feet. [3], [4]

United States Overnight Repo Rate was at 0.11 on Friday January 15

But, as they well know given their experience over the past 10 years, the markets will never be able to stand on their own feet in the current economic model. Now not only companies are being kept afloat by low interests rates, the US itself is dependent and kept solvent by low interest rates.

The fed has injected or made available over 9 trillion dollars to the banks in only 6 months leading up to March 2020, that is over 40% of the USA’s GDP, prior to Covid and represents nearly a 40% increase in the USA’s national debt!

So it is becoming very obvious that we are at the end of this particular monetary road, the ‘extend and pretend’ policy is finished and there is nothing in the economic tool box that can stall the inevitable. Only an external ‘divine’ intervention could, even temporarily delay the dollar’s collapse. As an aside, I should add, although they may be affected later, this is not happening in European or Asian banks, only in US banks.

The Diversion

In my opinion, the US security agencies picked a scenario off the shelf, something they have been justifiably rehearsing for years, the response to a deadly virus, which would produce the required financial shutdown, suppress bank activity, and create a world crisis big enough to eclipse the US economic crisis and produce a ‘flight to safety’ into the dollar, facilitating an economic induced coma, allowing time, a breathing space and justifying massive emergency QE injections into the US and world economy.

It could be sold as a period during which a restructuring of the world banking system could take place and perhaps reschedule debt as well as redefine the mechanisms of a new reserve currency.

This is what I think ‘The Great Reset’ really is about. It is being painted as something intricate and nefarious on every level, but it’s possibly more utilitarian than that, a necessary dialog, where the subject of that dialog is sealed from the public, justified by protecting our worried and panicky ears, and which concerns almost all western world leaders.

I’m sure a major false flag terror attack would have been discussed as an alternative to Covid, but the US is in no fit position economically to respond militarily, and without a military response to a terror attack the US would fear looking weak. Although Wars have been thought to resolve many an economic crisis, it is just as likely, in this instance, that a proxy war with Russia or a direct war with Iran would precipitate a dollar collapse, rather than create growth and a flight to ‘safety’. China would no doubt gleefully humiliate the US during such a conflict. So I speculate that major wars, as an economic solution, are off the table, at least until this crisis is resolved.

Creating a virus out of thin air is a cruel and vicious deceit, but the Fed will no doubt have claimed to its allies that it is far less painful than the total economic implosion we will face in the brewing economic collapse, where financial contagion from the US would cause most western financial institutions to become insolvent, debt would remain unpaid, trade would cease, asset values would crumble, bank machines stop, riots start, martial law be declared, and in many ill-prepared, import-dependent countries like the UK, rationing and eventually hunger would begin.

This is the threat the fed would have made to their allies, as we know for a fact they did in 2008, when asking for a united world central bank stimulus, making it appear vital to world economic survival.

They would have claimed that this time around the economic dangers are of such a magnitude that they even persuaded their foes, Russia and China, to partake in the hoax, because they are also reliant on continued banking & economic stability, and would not be willing to risk political instability at home caused by a second world economic depression.

By creating this suspension of an economic collapse, the US has cleverly turned the dominance of the dollar into a matter of international survival, effectively holding the world to ransom and blocking the baton of world reserve currency being dually transferred over to the next economic ascendant, China, and where the US has effectively engineered themselves a seat amongst the judges at their own bankruptcy hearing.

Believing this to be the case, I am less confused as to why most of the USA’s allies were so helpful and so consistent in making this Covid operation happen, and I have concluded it is their belief in the integrated nature of the financial & currency markets and the threat of economic collapse posited, as in 2008 by the Fed, that is causing their complicity.

Mutual Secrecy

As each irrational, destructive lockdown measure is implemented I am quite sure that our politicians, the very few that are in the know, say to each other: ‘we are lucky because “lockdowns” are as nothing, compared to the calamity that would overtake us in the event of a dollar-induced economic collapse!’ This, for me, explains their apparent insanity, lies and the internationally co-ordinated nature of their response. They too are acting out of fear, not for a virus, but for fear of anarchy and, by extension, the very real threat to their own lives that would result.

The secrecy surrounding this operation is wholly consistent, because it is in nobody’s interests to break ranks. If anyone exposes what is really happening to the US economy then it would precipitate the run on the banks, and then the dollar, that they are being told would lead to a world economic catastrophe.

To explore this hypothesis, we can look at the varying responses of the world players, and measure their reluctance or complicity in the scam, because at this turning point in history, during these shifts of power, loyalty is not guaranteed.

Japan has been strangely reluctant to take part, indicating to me their brooding irritation with US hegemony, which has been growing amongst their population for some years and expressed through the Osprey protests. It looked at one point like they were flirting with the idea of ignoring Covid altogether. Prompting the US to ‘invite’ Japan to join 5-eyes, perhaps to exert more direct control over them, via their security services?

Russia and China are reluctantly playing along for obvious economic reasons, but again we see reluctance to go full hog, despite the attraction of introducing authoritarian measures at home under the cover of Covid. Russia has even invented a non-existent vaccine for the non-existent virus, giving themselves an instant opt-out when required. Whereas China is preferring to just stop testing, and ignore the ‘crisis’ altogether, except for the odd statement about how dangerous it all is.

Non-western Africa, is not taking part at all, in Nigeria there are very few cases, probably because they are out of the loop on what is really happening, and see little evidence of a virus in their population.

Germany although physically occupied by the US, like Japan, have a confidence and independence that marks them apart from other vassal states. Having ‘found’ far fewer cases of Covid, they have tried to preserve their precious economy from any serious harm for as long as possible, demonstrating a cheekiness, consistent with their building of the Nord-stream pipeline project to Russia, ignoring the US’s repeated demands for them to stop.

In contrast, the USA’s closest, most supine of allies, & the 5 eyes states, are enthusiastically taking part, hyping the virus story to the nth degree of absurdity. Notably the UK, France and Australia, each week pushing yet another absurdly fascist response to a non-existent problem to scare their population stiff. In my view each allies’ response is calibrated to their financial dependency on the US and how ‘captured’ their leaders are to US interests.

On the political and media front, alternative media, doubtless spurred on by seeded stories and certain controlled opposition, unwittingly fans these flames by speculating on various kingpins and ideologues central to the plot, like Bill & Malinda Gates, and playing up fear stories of Marxist tyrannies, Communist takeovers, compulsory vaccines, tracking chips and various accusations against the dangers of 5G – targeted for being predominately European and Chinese technology.

The end result is a population left either paralysed by fear of the flu, or in terror of a rising ‘Marxist Fascist tyranny’ run by ‘jewish globalists’ and oligarchs. Either way, everyone is in too fearful a state to logically assess what is really going on around them.

I’m sure, in the dark bowels of Langley, Virginia, this scenario has been pre-rehearsed and stress-tested for years, and pieced together from a huge portfolio of coups and psychological terror operations from around the world.

Perhaps with lessons learned from Climate Change where, as with the weather, the common flu can easily be weaponised. In the case of Covid via a swiftly implemented ‘testing’ regime, simply testing for the common cold and producing millions of false positives, and a hysterical, totally unquestioning mainstream media.

Covid Opportunism

International Covid panic created some short term, but worryingly for the USA, short-lived ‘flight to safety’. ‘International crisis’ is the USA’s traditional and most effective tool to protect the dollar: normally US/UK media-manufactured. It was used to bolster a flagging dollar via the media-created ’Euro crisis’ or ‘Greek debt crisis’. A series of hysterical panics made ‘real’ by US and UK financial press, quickly making the USA’s economic woes old news, and reducing the world reserve holdings of the Euro in only a matter of months.

Along with the ‘flight to (dollar) safety’, Covid has offered the opportunity to freeze the USA’s banking collapse with massive injections of cash. $9 trillions was available to US banks up until March 2020, but in addition to this the Fed produced $5 trillion in economic stimulus to the wider economy and a further 5 trillions recently.

Without this ‘external threat’ – a ‘killer virus’ – this amount of stimulus would have immediately caused panic and threatened dollar credibility. However, with the virus narrative and the world-unified stimulus response to the ‘Covid pandemic’, this modest flight to (dollar) safety, along with the massive cash injections, looked justified and sensible.

It also looks to me like those in the ‘dollar economic zone’ – if there is such a thing – have gone along with their own impoverishment and have wrecked their own economies under the cover of Covid, to save themselves from a perceived greater economic catastrophe, bank contagion, on the basis of what I believe is being secretly told them by the USA, and based on what they have been witnessing in the US banking system prior to March.

It could easily be argued that we are being unwittingly drawn into a conspiracy to protect the dollar and US hegemony, under the cover of Covid, that is not in our own best long-term interests at all (currently being called the ‘great reset’).

Like Brexit and like the War on Carbon, I believe that if an operation or manufactured event seems to offer multifaceted advantages to the USA and their Corporate & military elite, then that operation has revealed its origins.

As it is the case with Covid, not only is there a freeze on the US economic collapse, but US Corporations and Internet services are benefiting massively from the ‘Covid illusion’. Something that must be getting more obvious by the day, and must be giving honest foreign leaders concerns as they see their retail sectors ravaged by Amazon and their cultural institutions replaced by Netflix, Apple TV and Amazon TV.

And the proposed ‘salvation’ involves paying billions to US Pharma, for, at best, a very doubtful vaccine. The least-honest politicians can no doubt engineer their ‘shutdowns’ to preference US corporations, whilst acting as the viceroys of Empire.

This looting could just be a side-show to the main event of dollar ‘transition’ or collapse, or it could be amongst the main aims of ‘Operation Covid’, it is difficult to tell, but it looks like the rest of the world is being looted by US Corporations and their home grown small-to-medium-size businesses bankrupted, with vast additional profits flowing to the USA’s richest, where we see the stella rise in the wealth of America’s robber barons.

From renting taxis with Uber, replacing hotels with flats from AirBNB, ordering meals via UberEats, holding meetings on zoom, spending ‘cash free’ via Visa, MasterCard & the Paypal cartel, ordering food on-line with Uber eats and destroying local culture are all being forced on a gullible world public during the Covid selective collapse. It should be dawning on everyone by now that Covid is a very, very Neoliberal Corporate virus, strangely working in the interests of a continued US Corporate neoliberal rollout against our own national geopolitical interests.

It is not only the Corporates that benefit from US ‘operations’ like Covid, the security state also demands their share of the spoils for assisting in and facilitating much of the operation. US tracking apps, social media and communication platforms are being forced, as a parasitical middle man, into every walk of our lives, taking a thin slice off everyday activities, like an America tax.

The details of the implementation of the Covid operation aside, it is possible that many inside the system regard the ‘Great Reset’ as not a conspiracy to oppress us, to exploit us and destroy our lives in a Marxist tyranny as many believe, but rather regard it as a necessary adjustment to an unbalanced economic system.

To see it like that we must believe that the current system is fundamentally flawed and that good faith solutions are being sought. I think ‘The Reset’ is seen by many honest brokers around the world as a genuine platform to resolve flaws in the current world economy, and to manage a transition from the dollar, in a controlled fashion. We should not always think the worst motives of everyone involved.

Having said that, I have no doubt that the US is busy trying to hijack the agenda to preserve its own supremacy, even during its climactic demise. The US Military industrial complex will be suspicious of any direction not determined by them, and I’m sure in Washington, Brussels and Beijing there is a battle over the measures and direction we need to take.

Like it or not, there may be very good reasons for these discussions to be held in secret, and we are left with only secondhand hints of the battles being fought over our current economic future; like Universal income, a shared international reserve currency, digital currencies or a cashless society, perhaps required through exchange controls or price fixing, to fight coming hyper-inflation?

Many US shills will be telling the world, that this is a ‘crisis of capitalism’, a crisis of western civilisation, and that we all need to preserve the US economy & dollar supremacy to save the world.

I personally believe the US has set us up during this crisis, like they did in the last in 2008, where they dumped all their bad debt on European banks to ‘share’ the crisis out. Working on the principle that: a problem shared is a problem halved, perhaps. Even if we are in this crisis because of a US collapse, and the rest of us could survive relatively unscathed. A ‘Reset’ does appear to be one route that enables a slow deflating of the economic bomb sitting under the US and which may affect the rest of us badly, if it goes off.

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die…

I reference the nursery rhyme as a cautionary tail, because this all started with the relatively normal economic recession of 2007, which if the USA had allowed to burn through its economy, would have been resolved in only a few years, and we would be living in normal times now. But they didn’t. The world’s central banks were persuaded to take measures that caused greater long-term harm, which in turn has led, in my view, to the ‘Covid solution’, a provocation intended to temporarily justify even more of the poisonous QE and low interest rates that didn’t work before.

Whilst perhaps sold as a ‘fire-break for a more long term solution to be found, I don’t see much evidence that the ‘fire-break’ is being used well. It seems more like a pause for the always shortsighted American elites to loot as much as is possible from our states’ coffers before an economic tsunami hits.

A Self-Inflicted Problem

I also believe the US never needed to be in this grave position it is today. Its problems are very much self inflicted. Simply taxing its wealthy and cutting its outrageous military spending would have averted a dollar crisis, leading instead to a slow drift from the dollar over a few decades as China took up the strain. But that is another story related to America’s ideological, political and philosophical bankruptcy and scleroses, that has increasingly driven them into an economic ditch over the past 45 years.

The Covid operation itself is a beautiful metaphor for the original banking crisis, which triggered the Fed to use quantitive easing (QE) – a far, far more damaging response than the original crisis itself, just as the lockdowns are far, far more damaging than this strain of flu, naturally occurring or released deliberately as a marker.

If a consensus resolution is not found quickly for the transfer or sharing of the world reserve currency, as the dollar is about to collapse, I have no doubt we will be required to ‘swallow’ a more drastic intervention than Covid to save the US economy and the dollar, each solution proving more damaging than the last …And of course, as the rhyme goes, we will eventually swallow a ‘horse’… and be ‘dead of course’.

If I am right guys, in one respect you can breathe a sigh of relief: world tyranny, forced vaccinations with harmful DNA changes, sterilisations, and mass genocide are not the main aims of this ‘operation’. They may be the end result of it, if we are not careful, but I don’t think they are the main aims.

The US is trying to stall dollar relegation using the Covid operation, and make it a major event, when previously the transition from old to new world reserve currency would have gone almost unnoticed by most of us. The British ceded the Pound’s world reserve currency status relatively quietly after WWII, under US pressure to float the pound.

It is perhaps a measure of the utility that is now offered by the world’s reserve currency, to facilitate the uncontrolled looting of the rest of the world’s economies, that it is now such a prize and so hard to surrender. Without the dollar and its world reserve status, enabling the US to print pieces of green paper in exchange for real goods, the US would certainly be bankrupt.

But that is not our fault and it is not for us in the rest of the world to save them, especially since it is their ideology that has inflicted so much harm on their own people and the rest of world.

What we are witnessing is an attempt, through foul means, by another once great Empire to postpone the inevitable. To fight off being consigned to obscurity.

So we exist in that mad time, that time of collapse and chaos before a new order asserts itself, which could last a month or 100 years.

Facebook Permanently Bans Young Conservative Entrepreneurs After They Create “Patriots Against Joe Biden” Facebook Page


This week, both co-founders of The Scoop, Steeve Strange and Cameron Shizznit, who regularly post their videos on The Gateway Pundit, had their personal profiles permanently banned from Facebook.

Upon trying to log in to our respective accounts, we both received this message:

When The Scoop clicked ‘Go To Help Center’ to submit an appeal this is the response they received:

This message let us know that our ‘Facebook account was disabled because it did not follow our community standards.”

Facebook also confirmed that “this decision can’t be reversed.”

The only warning that Facebook issued to us was about our new group that Facebook town down called ‘Patriots Against Joe Biden.’

Apparently, peaceful law-abiding groups and pages that are anti-Joe Biden do not comply with Facebook’s “community standards.”

It is clear from this warning and takedown that Facebook considers people who don’t agree with Biden’s policies are “hateful,” “threatening,” and/or “obscene.”

Another group that was created by The Scoop was called ‘Patriot Party,‘ The Scoop co-founders were the only 2 admins of the group, so that group with over 67,000 members will no longer be able to be accessed.

Luckily, The Scoop still has other admins who have access to our ‘The Scoop’ Facebook page that has over 200,000 followers.  However, the ban of our two personal accounts will no doubt make our ability to post on The Scoop’s page very difficult.

Meanwhile, the “Not My President” anti-Trump Facebook group is still posting their nasty attacks on President Trump after 4 years.

The facebook group posted their first video before the Trump Inauguration four years ago.
That page has 750,000 members.

Facebook appears to have gone on a purge yesterday with banning several conservative accounts.

If you search ‘Facebook disabled’ on Twitter, you will see thousands of tweets like these from over the past week:

Anyone else randomly get kicked off Facebook? I have no idea what could’ve caused it but they disabled my account.

— Morgan Cooper (@eMoCoop) January 19, 2021

This just happened to me yesterday afternoon!! Someone on here @backup_support messaged me claiming they could help but scammed me. I have tried everything to get in touch with @Facebook, I don’t want to lose 10+ years of pictures 😭

Weirdly enough, the personal accounts of The Scoop co-founders on Instagram have not been affected, except for a serious shadow ban that restricted our accounts reach, lowering our reach from 2 million profiles a week down to just 300,000 in less than 1 months time,.

**  You can follow them on Instagram here.

The Scoop has also recently created profiles on Parler, MeWe, Telegram, and SafeChat.  Please click through the links to follow us on any of these Platforms.

Like hundreds of conservative publishers before them Facebook was a major source for The Scoop that they have now completely lost.

** These young conservatives also humbly ask if you can to donate to us on Patreon while we are transitioning to alternative free-speech platforms during these dark times.

The co-founders tell The Gateway Pundit: “We will not bow to this social media censorship! Fighting back is the only way to make us stronger in the long run.”

They tell us —- “Stay tuned, you all are going to love what is coming next!”

Democrats 'waging a scorched earth campaign to silence' opponents


[Editor's note: This story originally was published by Real Clear Politics.]

By J. Peder Zane
Real Clear Politics

The Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the crisis Democrats were waiting for, and they are not going to waste it. Those few hours of lawless mayhem became unimpeachable proof that the muddy smears they’d thrown against Donald Trump supporters were all true.

Through the funhouse mirror of hyper-partisanship, that angry mob of thousands became all 74 million Americans who voted for Trump in November. The crowd’s explicit anger over the 2020 election was cast as an implicit push for white supremacy.

Never mind that almost all prominent Republicans and conservatives recoiled from the violence and immediately condemned it, or that one of the main organizers of the rally was a black Arab American. There’s enough scattershot evidence for Democrats and their allies to add “demonstrated violence” to their list of conservative crimes and justify a radical program of repression. While Joe Biden issues calls for unity, many of his allies are waging a scorched earth campaign to silence all who oppose them.

Since the violent attacks, left-leaning tech companies have been given a free hand to quash dissent. On Jan. 8 Twitter permanently suspended President Trump’s account and later purged more than 70,000 accounts it said were affiliated QAnon, whose members subscribe to various conspiracy theories and question the integrity of the government.

That same day it was reported that Facebook removed the #Walkaway Campaign, which featured testimonials from Democrats who had left the party because of its hard-left turn. Facebook deemed this “hateful, threatening, or obscene.” On Jan. 10, Amazon pulled the plug on the libertarian social media platform Parler because a handful of its estimated 2.3 million active users were connected to the violence.

Government is also policing thought. On Jan. 18, the New York Times reported that the Pentagon “is intensifying efforts to identify and combat white supremacy and other far-right extremism in its ranks.” Network news reported that several unnamed National Guardsmen were pulled from the ranks of those protecting the Capitol after the FBI said it discovered fringe political views in their social media footprint or digital communications with friends.

That same day, Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee (pictured) questioned the loyalty of the National Guard because it is “90 some-odd percent male, and only about 20% of white males voted for Biden; you've got to figure the Guard is more conservative. ... There are probably not more than 25% of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75% are in the class who might want to do something."

Cohen’s rant is not only alarming; it’s inaccurate in its own terms. White men under age 30 (the average age of an enlisted man in the National Guard is 29.5) broke for Trump, but only narrowly – 51% to 46%, according to exit polls.

Now the Biden administration is promising to make “domestic terrorism” a priority for the National Security Council. You don’t need a dog whistle decoder to know this means they will be targeting conservative groups. Anyone who says the innocent have nothing to worry about should bone up on the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

It is tempting to compare this to the McCarthy-era probes that challenged people’s patriotism and worked to weed out communists, homosexuals and other alleged subversives and deviants. But that ugly movement was weak tea by comparison, as it targeted a relatively small percentage of Americans. Today, in the broadest sense, one half of the nation is working to demonize and silence the other half.

This effort didn’t begin after Jan. 6. The illiberalism that has infected many American schools, the cancel culture that has propagated across social media and the left-wing demand that everything – what you eat, wear, watch and care about – be seen through the lens of politics, was metastasizing long before. But the attack on the Capitol is the made-for-television moment being used to smother dissent in the name of patriotism.

Everyone who thought Biden’s victory would lower the temperature was sold a bill of goods. Instead of normalcy we’re getting a purge.

This is inevitable because of the leftist ideology Democrats and their allies have embraced. It sees everyone -- except, of course, their enlightened selves -- as unthinking empty vessels. They believe their mission is to fill these pathetic puppets (i.e., you and me) with their virtuous brew of truth. They honestly think they are doing us a favor and expect we’ll thank them once we see things their way.

This is the faith of the victim culture, whose sinners are those who have been corrupted by the dark forces of conservatism and whose saints are those who walk the path of liberal enlightenment. This is why media figures such as Katie Couric describe Trump supporters as cult members and columnist Eugene Robinson wonders how they can be deprogrammed.

“Never Trump” Republicans are echoing these sentiments. In his Jan. 14 New York Times column, David Brooks asserted that there is now a split on the right “between those who have become detached from reality and those who, however right wing, are still in the real world. Hence, it’s not an argument. You can’t argue with people who have their own separate made-up set of facts.”

George W. Bush strategist Mark McKinnon argued the same point on MSNBC this week: “You can't just confront them [Trump supporters] with the facts because they don't believe it. They live in an alternate universe where they have been told other reality, quote ‘realities,’ that they think are realities.”

To be sure, some Trump supporters fit this mold. The former president often did himself. But whether they mean to or not, these voices – in the media, no less – provide the rationale for abandoning the First Amendment in the name of censorship. It’s why the left is cheering Big Tech’s embrace of cancel culture and pushing cable providers to stop airing One America News Network, Newsmax and other “conservative influencers.”

It’s why the so-called Trump Accountability Project, which seeks to prevent administrations officials from gainful employment, is not widely denounced for the thuggery that it is and why 250 publishing professionals feel comfortable circulating a “No Book Deals for Traitors” petition that says former Trump officials shouldn’t be allowed to publish their works. It’s also why Harvard students think it’s reasonable to circulate a letter demanding the revocation of degrees earned by Republicans who questioned the 2020 election, and why demands that the Senate not give Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley any committee assignments.

Note that antifa – the anarchist hate group spurred on by Democrats -- has been stirring up trouble in Portland, Ore., this week, even shouting epithets against Joe Biden. Eventually the revolution eats its own. It is hard to know how any of this ends. History shows that such campaigns have no goal but total victory. For their perpetrators, there is no accommodation with an enemy they define as dangerous and irrational; there is only submission.

I keep hoping that reasonable liberals will rise up and speak out against these illiberal forces.

Finally, a plea: President Biden, please work to rebuild the decent, fair United States you celebrate in your rhetoric. It is under siege by those around you.

Facebook purges left-wing pages and individuals

On Friday, Facebook carried out a purge of left-wing, antiwar and progressive pages and accounts, including leading members of the Socialist Equality Party. Facebook gave no explanation why the accounts were disabled or even a public acknowledgement that the deletions had occurred.


China Deletes Key SARS-CoV-2 Related Science


Questions about the origin of SARS-CoV-2 continue to swirl as Chinese officials delete some 300 coronavirus studies, including all of the papers published by Shi Zhengli, the bat coronavirus researcher at the center of this drama. As reported by the Daily Mail, January 9, 2021:1

“The Chinese government is facing fresh accusations of a cover-up after officials deleted crucial online data about the laboratory suspected of being the source of COVID-19 … Hundreds of pages of information relating to studies carried out by the top-secret Wuhan Institute of Virology have been wiped.

Details of more than 300 studies, including many investigating diseases that pass from animals to humans, published online by the state-run National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are no longer available. The deletion of key evidence has reignited fears that China is trying to whitewash the investigation into the origins of the virus.”

The data deletion came on the heels of President Xi Jinping’s decision to block World Health Organization investigators from entering China. State media have also reportedly published “hundreds of stories” claiming SARS-CoV-2 did not originate in Wuhan.

Mounting Evidence Points to Lab Leak

Meanwhile, evidence that SARS-CoV-2 leaked from a lab in China continues to mount — this according to U.S. deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger.2 According to a January 2, 2021, Mail Online article:3

“Pottinger said that the latest intelligence points to the virus leaking from the top-secret Wuhan Institute of Virology … 'There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus.'

He claimed the pathogen may have escaped through a 'leak or an accident,' adding: 'Even establishment figures in Beijing have openly dismissed the wet market story.' The comments … were made during a Zoom conference with MPs on China …

‘MPs around the world have a moral role to play in exposing the WHO investigation as a Potemkin exercise,' Mr. Pottinger told the parliamentarians, in reference to the fake villages created in the Crimea in the 18th Century, intended to convince the visiting Russian Empress Catherine the Great that the region was in good health.

Iain Duncan Smith, the former Tory Party leader who attended the meeting, said Mr. Pottinger's comments represented a 'stiffening' of the U.S. position on the theory that the virus came from a leak at the laboratory …”

According to the Daily Mail, the WHO — already accused of being too accommodating to China — has raised additional controversy with its decision to not include the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in its investigation, despite the fact that the WIV is the lab with the highest biosecurity in China and the most likely source.4

Conflicts of Interest Taint Investigations Into Origin

The WHO is also under critique for its decision to include Peter Daszak, Ph.D., in its investigative committee.5 Daszak is the president of EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit organization focused on pandemic prevention that has worked closely with the WIV. When SARS-CoV-2 first emerged in Wuhan, the EcoHealth Alliance was actually providing funding to the WIV to collect and study novel bat coronaviruses.

Daszak is also heading up a second commission to investigate the origin of the virus, The Lancet COVID-19 commission,6 despite having openly and repeatedly dismissed the possibility of the pandemic being the result of a lab leak.7

Emails released through freedom of information requests have shown Daszak recruited some of the world’s top scientists to counter claims of a possible lab leak. ~ Daily Mail

Importantly, correspondence obtained by U.S. Right to Know (USRTK) show Daszak played a central role in the plot to obscure the lab origin of SARS-CoV-2 from the very beginning by crafting a scientific statement condemning such inquiries as “conspiracy theory.”8,9 This manufactured “consensus” was then relied on by the media to counter anyone presenting theories and evidence to the contrary.

Critics Call on Daszak to Step Down

Daszak’s blatant conflicts of interest were highlighted in a second January 9, 2021, Daily Mail article.10 “How can Peter Daszak, a British scientist who helped fund controversial experiments on coronaviruses by China’s Batwoman, be part of WHO’s team investigating the original source of the outbreak?” the Daily Mail asked. According to the article, Daszak is now “facing calls to step down” from both investigative committees. As reported by the Daily Mail:11

“‘Peter Daszak has conflicts of interest that unequivocally disqualify him from being part of an investigation of the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic,’ said Richard Ebright, bio-security expert and professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

‘He was the contractor responsible for funding of high-risk research on SARS-related bat coronaviruses at Wuhan Institute of Virology and a collaborator on this research.’

The pugnacious scientist … spent much of the past year trying to counter claims of a possible laboratory leak while defending his friend Shi Zhengli, the Wuhan scientist known as Batwoman for her virus-hunting trips in caves. ‘Ignore the conspiracy theories: scientists know COVID-19 wasn’t created in a lab,’ ran the headline to one typical article he wrote in The Guardian.

But other scientists say there is no firm evidence at this stage to back Daszak’s insistence that COVID-19 crossed from animals to humans via natural transmission …

Emails released through freedom of information requests have shown Daszak recruited some of the world’s top scientists to counter claims of a possible lab leak with publication of a landmark collective letter to The Lancet early last year.

He drafted their statement attacking ‘conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin’ and then persuaded 26 other prominent scientists to back it.

He suggested the letter should not be identifiable as ‘coming from any one organization or person.’ The signatories include six of the 12-strong Lancet team investigating the cause of the outbreak.”

Daszak Has Previously Warned About Lab Escape Dangers

Strangely enough, according to the Daily Mail,12 in an October 2015 article in the journal Nature, Daszak actually warned a global pandemic might occur from a laboratory incident and that “the risks were greater with the sort of virus manipulation research being carried out in Wuhan.”

Earlier that year, he was also a key speaker at a National Academies of Science seminar on reducing risk from emerging infectious diseases. Among the material Daszak presented at that meeting was a paper titled, “Assessing Coronavirus Threats,” which included an examination of the “spillover potential” from “genetic and experimental studies” on viruses.

In particular, he highlighted the danger of experimenting on “humanized mice,” meaning lab mice that have been genetically altered to carry human genes, cells or tissues.

Such concerns were apparently swept under the rug, because January 2, 2020, Daszak sent out a tweet announcing he’d successfully isolated SARS coronaviruses “that bind to human cells in the lab,” and that the work of other scientists show some of these viruses have pandemic potential as they can infect humanized mice.13

“Another tweet two months earlier talked about ‘great progress’ with SARS-related coronaviruses from bats through identifying new strains, finding ones that bind to human cells and ‘using recombinant viruses/humanized mice to see SARS-like signs and showing some don’t respond to vaccines,’” the Daily Mail writes, adding:14

“Daszak also told a podcast that bat coronaviruses could be manipulated in a lab ‘pretty easily,’ explaining how their spike proteins — which bind to human receptors in cells — drive the risk of transmission from animals to humans. ‘You can get the [genetic] sequence, build the protein, insert it into the backbone of another virus and do some work in the lab,’ he said succinctly.”

Is SARS-CoV-2 the Result of Passage Through Transgenic Mice?

Might SARS-CoV-2 be the result of close ancestor viruses being passed through transgenic mice equipped with human ACE2 receptors? This is one of the latest hypotheses raised in recent weeks.15

As reported by The Jackson Laboratory,16 structural differences between the mouse ACE2 and the human ACE2 proteins make regular lab mice unsuitable for research relating to SARS-CoV-2, as the virus cannot readily infect them. However, there are transgenic mice that express human ACE2.

The first of these transgenic mice, known as K18-hACE2, was developed in 2007. Other transgenic mice with human ACE2 have been created since then. At least two recent studies have shown that transgenic mice with human ACE2 are easily infected and killed by SARS-CoV-2:

The first, published in the July 8, 2020, issue of Cell Host & Microbe found transgenic mice with human ACE2 of all ages had far higher viral loads in the lungs, trachea and brain than wild-type mice.

While none died, older transgenic mice infected with SARS-CoV-2 came down with pneumonia and had elevated cytokines. The virus was found to produce “productive infection” both via intranasal and intragastric infection.17

The second, published in the July 9, 2020, issue of the journal Cell found SARS-CoV-2 infected HFH4-hACE2 transgenic mice, causing death. The infection was primarily localized to the lungs, causing interstitial pneumonia similar to that seen in COVID-19 patients. Low levels of viral RNA were also found in the eyes, heart and brain in a small number of animals.18

Zhengli Experimented on Humanized Mice

In response19 to questions for a July 31, 2020 Science article, WIV researcher Zhengli stated that:20,21

“We performed in vivo experiments in transgenic (human ACE2 expressing) mice and civets in 2018 and 2019 in the Institute’s biosafety laboratory. The viruses we used were bat SARSr-CoV close to SARS-CoV … The results suggested that bat SARSr-CoV can directly infect civets and can also infect mice with human ACE2 receptors. Yet it showed low pathogenicity in mice and no pathogenicity in civets.”

So, Zhengli admits experiments were done on transgenic mice using a bat-derived SARS-related coronavirus — which closely resembles SARS-CoV — as recently as 2018 and 2019. (SARS-CoV is the virus responsible for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), that broke out in 2003.)

Could this be the missing intermediate species that explains why SARS-CoV-2 is so well-adapted to infecting humans via the ACE2 receptor? As reported by Taipei News, January 11, 2021:22

“The director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases at WIV, Shi Zhengli … since 2007 has been researching how spike proteins in natural and chimeric SARS-like coronaviruses bind to the ACE2 receptors in the cells of humans, bats, and other animals.

That year, she created a number of chimeras by inserting different segments of the SARS-CoV S spike protein into that of a bat virus (SL-CoV S) which was used as a backbone. The conclusion of Shi's team was that a minimal insert region (amino acids 310 to 518) was enough to ‘convert the SL-CoV S from non-ACE2 binding to human ACE2 binding.’

In other words, as far back as 2007, the lab had discovered how to convert a virus that only infected bats into one that could infect humans … In 2019, just before the known start of the pandemic, [assistant researcher] Hu [Ben] began his work on a project titled ‘Pathogenicity of 2 new bat SARS-related covs to transgenic mice expressing human ACE2.’

According to [researcher Billy] Bostickson [a pseudonym], ‘This research involved 'novel' bat coronaviruses inoculated into immuno-suppressed mice with humanized features, such as hACE2, and possibly humanized lungs, bone marrow, etc...’

He added that ‘Such experiments were a recipe for disaster, as we know.’ No information about this research has been released to the public since the start of the pandemic, including data on the eight chimeric viruses the WIV had been infecting the mice with.

In fact, all of the institute's databases have been offline since the start of the pandemic for alleged ‘cybersecurity issues,’ including 100 unpublished sequences of bat betacoronaviruses, which need to be sequenced by international scientists, according to Bostickson.”

Bostickson is a researcher with the Decentralized Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigating COVID-19 (DRASTIC). DRASTIC has created a petition23 to the WHO COVID-19 International Investigation Team, asking for answers to 50 key questions about the outbreak. They’re also requesting access to the currently missing WIV database and lab records spanning two decades.

The Qingdao Outbreak

In the featured video above, Dr. John Campbell reviews the latest updates on the investigation into the origin of the pandemic. This includes findings from an investigation into the COVID-19 outbreak in Qingdao that occurred in October 2020.24

According to Wu Zunyou, a researcher with the Chinese equivalent of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the outbreak was traced back to imported frozen cod.

According to Wu, the virus can infect people after extended periods of deep freeze, which Campbell agrees is logical from a virological perspective. However, while being a weak argument, to say the least, the Chinese are using this finding as evidence that the virus did not originate in Wuhan but, rather, was imported from overseas.

Campbell goes on to review some of the background of the WIV, which is located 11 miles from the open market initially identified as “ground zero” for the COVID-19 outbreak. It’s an interesting coincidence, and since even the Chinese authorities have now dismissed the market as being the source, the possibility of the virus originating in WIV seems all the more plausible.

Importantly, the WIV specializes in the study of bat-borne viruses. WIV has also collaborated with U.S. researchers, and has received study grants from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (some of it being funneled through the EcoHealth Alliance).

What’s more, in 2018, U.S. state department officials who had inspected the lab warned there were safety weaknesses that might facilitate the emergence of a SARS-like pandemic,25 which is precisely what we’ve been dealing with for the past year.

Can We Get to the Truth?

Whether either of the two investigative commissions will actually unearth the truth about SARS-CoV-2’s origin or simply bury it deeper remains to be seen, but based on key members’ clear conflicts of interests, it doesn’t look promising.

Daszak — who is part of both of these investigations — has every reason to make sure that a) SARS-CoV-2 doesn’t get traced back to the WIV, seeing how he’s been working with them, and b) the virus is declared a natural occurrence, since his own livelihood as a scientist would otherwise be threatened.

Still, as noted by Campbell, we must try to get to the bottom of where SARS-CoV-2 came from, even if efforts to obfuscate the truth are at work. It’s really crucial if we are to prevent a similar pandemic to erupt in the future. As noted by the National Review:26

“If it originated from a person eating bat or pangolin at a wet market, then we need to take steps to ensure that bat and pangolin consumption and trade stops everywhere in the world …

Bat guano is used as fertilizer in many countries, and that guano can be full of viruses … If this is the source of the virus, we need to get people to stop going into caves and using the guano as fertilizer …

In a strange way, the ‘lab accident’ scenario is one of the most reassuring explanations. It means that if we want to ensure we never experience this again, we simply need to get every lab in the world working on contagious viruses to ensure 100% compliance with safety protocols, all the time.” 

Historical facts tell us accidental exposures and releases have already happened, and we only have our lucky stars to thank that none have turned into pandemics taking the lives of millions.

From my perspective, the COVID-19 pandemic is a clarion call to the research community and the public alike. Over the past year, we’ve seen a relatively nonlethal virus sweep the globe causing unprecedented damage in myriad ways.

By continuing gain-of-function research on lethal pathogens, we may be sealing our own fate. Considering safety breaches at these labs number in the hundreds,27,28,29,30 it’s only a matter of time before something really nasty gets out. The question is, will we make the right choice and ban this kind of research before it’s too late?

As Biden takes office, medical journal quiety retracts study claiming HCQ is ineffective



(NATIONAL FILE) – A leading medical journal has issued a retraction of their endorsement for a study that concluded the anti-viral drug hydroxychloroquine was ineffective against the COVID-19 virus. This retraction appears to validate the claims then-President Trump made about the medication being a frontline drug in the battle in the pandemic.

The Lancet, a respected online medical journal, issued an apology to its readers in an edition last year after the retraction. "We deeply apologize to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused," the publishers of The Lancet said.

Compared to the significantly more expensive medications being used to treat the virus, hydroxychloroquine – a drug widely used to treat malaria – is relatively inexpensive and universally available. Hydroxychloroquine ranges in price from $0.30 to $6.63 per dose depending on location.

American hotels experienced worst year ever



(ZEROHEDGE) – According to STR, Inc, a hotel industry market data firm, 2020 was absolutely the worst year on record for hotels as industrywide profits fell to zero, as the virus pandemic and resulting government-enforced social distancing measures kept travelers at home.

STR's latest report said the U.S. hotel occupancy rate was 44% for the year, down from 66% in 2019. This was the lowest occupancy rate on record. In an earlier STR report, we noted weeks ago that the industry had one billion unsold room nights for the first time, surpassing the record of 786 million in 2009.

Even though S&P Global Ratings warned a few months back that the hotel industry's recovery may not occur until 2023, STR now believes a recovery in occupancy rates back to 2019 levels may not occur until 2024.

When money is running short, print your own

Last spring, shortly after it became clear that COVID-19 was more than just a little flu and that local shops would be down and out for more than just a little while, America got to wondering: How can we save small businesses? Many commentators demanded quick federal relief.


Mind control: How social media supercharged the propaganda system

In their book "Manufacturing Consent," the late Ed Herman and professor Noam Chomsky described how a privately owned free press could function as a propaganda system that deceived its readers quite as efficiently as a heavy-handed government censor.


Halfway Through This Winter of Covid, Overall Mortality Is Around Normal For This Time Of Year. Something Doesn’t Add Up



Although the numbers of deaths attributed to the virus in the UK are higher than they’ve ever been, in total, not many more people are dying than in any other cold season. Is the mainstream media finally waking up to this?

A recent article in the Telegraph is one of the first in a mainstream outlet to even suggest a challenge to the official coronavirus narrative. These days, that narrative claims that the ‘second wave’ is actually deadlier than the first. (Recently, some Branch Covidians have been claiming a ‘third wave’, but there is not yet a united front on that.)

The basic reasoning of the article is sound, even if it is long overdue. It laments how every day, the media solemnly reports the latest figures on Covid deaths. Presenting this figure in isolation results in graphs such as this one, which does indeed seem to show that we are at the height of a second, worse phase of a pandemic. But, like any statistics, daily death numbers are meaningless without context, which the media rarely provides.

They do not provide context because, if they did, the public might see a graph such as this one, from the Telegraph article. It quite clearly shows the spring spike in overall mortality, which was caused by Covid (plus lockdowns). After that ends in summer, we see… nothing. Overall mortality ever since, even through this winter, hovers at around the five-year average. And overall mortality, as I’ve repeatedly pointed out, is the only true way to know whether you are in a pandemic or not – all other figures can easily be fiddled.

Out of whack

So, why are the excess death data and the Covid deaths data so out of whack? And why isn’t Covid killing lots and lots of people this winter, as it did in spring? Even if you ascribe all excess deaths to Covid and none to lockdown, there really does not seem to be anything out of the normal variation in total deaths from year to year. And surely, by now, the toll of unnecessary deaths caused by untreated cancer, heart disease, depression and so on, has at least begun to register.

One reason coronavirus might not be slaying all around it this winter is because, well, this is not its first winter. Remember: it is called Covid-19, as in 2019. Of course, the official version of history states that the virus never reached Western civilisation until the spring of 2020, but evidence for this assertion is based on dodgy polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and a profound rejection of common sense. (By the way, how many people do you know who had a severe bout of pneumonia-like symptoms last winter?)

But the main reason for the disparity is obvious: mass PCR testing. Under the current regime (science is the wrong word), a ‘Covid death’ is someone who dies having tested positive for Covid within the previous 28 days. When you test all hospital patients, as the UK does, then some of them will turn out to be positive – how many depends largely on the way you do the tests. And the more tests you do, the more ‘Covid deaths’ you will generate. It is that simple. Dr Mike Yeadon has written extensively on this, which he calls the PCR false positive pseudo-epidemic.

Too little, too late

In another time, it might have been shocking that it took so long for the science editor of a broadsheet newspaper to wonder why, in the midst of a killer pandemic the world’s not seen for a century or so, the number of people dying in the country is ordinary. Better late than never I suppose, but do not take this as a sign that the reinforcements are coming. Even this article makes absolutely certain to pledge allegiance to Covid orthodoxy, stating without evidence that “severe restrictions were … clearly essential to control the growing pandemic’’.

Most people do not get their information by sifting through government-issued statistics on websites designed to hinder you. But there used to be a word for someone who got paid to do exactly that and then tell the public, in plain English, what they found. Oh, that’s right – we used to call those people ‘journalists’. There don’t seem to be many of them about these days, not even at the Telegraph.

We Are Suffering Through The Most Painful Economic Crisis Since The Great Depression Of The 1930s


I warned that an economic collapse was coming, and an economic collapse is exactly what we got.  2020 was a “personal financial disaster” for 55 percent of all Americans, approximately 12 million U.S. renters are “at least $5,850 behind in rent and utilities payments”, the Aspen Institute is projecting that up to 40 million people could be facing eviction when the rent and mortgage moratoriums finally end, and more than 70 million new claims for unemployment benefits have been filed since the COVID pandemic began.

Nobody can point to a time since the Great Depression of the 1930s when the U.S. economy was in worse shape than it is right now.

Unfortunately, there are no indications that this nightmare is going to end.  Last week, another 900,000 Americans filed new claims for unemployment benefits

Another 900,000 people filed new unemployment claims last week, President Donald Trump’s last in office, a snapshot of the significant labor market challenges facing President Joe Biden.

An additional 423,000 people in 47 states filed new claims for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, the program created to help gig and self-employed workers.

Prior to 2020, the all-time record for new unemployment claims in a single week was just 695,000, and that old record was set all the way back in 1982.

We shattered that old record early in 2020, but the bigger story is what has happened since we broke it.

At this point, the number of new claims for unemployment benefits has been above 695,000 for 44 weeks in a row.

That is starting to come close to a full year.

If that does not qualify as a “collapse”, then you are probably using a completely different definition of the word than I am using.

This unemployment crisis has hit low wage workers particularly hard.  At this point, even Fed officials are being forced to admit that the unemployment rate for low wage workers “is above 20%”.

Many of those low wage workers used to be employed in the restaurant industry, but the restaurant industry continues to be mired in the worst stretch that it has ever encountered

The number of “seated diners,” a daily measure with which OpenTable tracks walk-ins and diners with reservations, in the week through January 20 in the US was down on average by 57% from the same period last year.

The hospitality industry also typically employs large numbers of low wage workers, and we are being told that last year was the “worst year on record” for that industry…

According to STR, Inc, a hotel industry market data firm, 2020 was absolutely the worst year on record for hotels as industrywide profits fell to zero, as the virus pandemic and resulting government-enforced social distancing measures kept travelers at home.

STR’s latest report said the US hotel occupancy rate was 44% for the year, down from 66% in 2019. This was the lowest occupancy rate on record. In an earlier STR report, we noted weeks ago that the industry had one billion unsold room nights for the first time, surpassing the record of 786 million in 2009.

Countless numbers of small business owners have also been absolutely devastated by this economic downturn.

Each month, thousands of small businesses die a permanent death, and the outlook for the months ahead is not good at all.

The Epoch Times recently interviewed one small business owner in Minnesota who admitted that “the fallout by this time next year will be shocking”…

The ramifications of the forced shutdowns on thousands of small businesses in Minnesota is going to be huge, says Julie Schroeder, who owns two craft stores in the Minneapolis metro area.

“The fallout by this time next year will be shocking,” she told The Epoch Times on Dec. 30, 2020.

Meanwhile, north of the border small businesses are being destroyed at a staggering rate as well

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business is warning that more than 220,000 businesses across the country are at risk of permanently closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CFIB, a lobby group that represents small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in Canada, released a new report on Thursday that surveyed 4,129 members about business prospects through the pandemic. The survey found that 181,000 businesses – or one in six – are seriously contemplating permanently closing. That’s up from a similar survey conducted in July, which found that 158,000 businesses were at risk of closing.

In the end, if we can keep the amount of small businesses in the U.S. and Canada that go under to less than 20 percent that should be considered a major victory.

Because I have a feeling that the final number is going to be well above that threshold.

And the Biden administration does not seem too sympathetic to the needs of small businesses at this point.  For example, one new law that Biden is likely to sign would absolutely cripple small truckers

Trucking industry experts expect Joe Biden’s presidency to seriously jeopardize many small American trucking companies, and the prospects of truck drivers who work as independent contractors.

Biden is poised to sign a transportation law passed in the Democratic House and stalled in the then-Republican Senate in 2019. The Moving Forward Act had required commercial motor vehicles to maintain more than $2 million in insurance liability, more than doubling the existing $750,000.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our representatives in Washington were forced to take a basic course in economics before they were allowed to serve?

The blind are leading the blind, and the economic nightmare that we are currently experiencing is eventually going to get a whole lot worse.

But hopefully we can at least have a short period of time where things will plateau a bit before the next major trigger event happens.

So many people out there are really hurting right now, and it is not just financial pain that they are dealing with.

The past several months have been excruciatingly painful for tens of millions of Americans, and the truth is that there are countless people out there that are emotionally shattered at this moment.

If you are one of those people, just keep hanging in there.

It will take some time, but you will get through this and you will recover.

And I will continue to be here pumping out articles as I do my very best to try to help everyone make sense of a world that is going completely mad.

Criminal Deception by Pfizer, Matt Hancock and the NHS on Covid "Vaccines"



Most people would assume that a "Vaccine" would be:

Effective at stopping infection.
Effective at stopping transmission.
Effective at stopping people from becoming serious ill, requiring hospitalisation or dying.
Tested for any adverse side effects  - and the adverse side effects found to be considerably less for the targeted group than the disease being inoculated against.

The Covid "vaccines" are NONE of the above things.

I will deal with the major problems with lack of efficacy first and then deal with the even more major problems of criminal deception and lack of safety second.


In their PR Press Release, Pfizer fraudulently and unscientifically claimed that their "vaccine" was "95% effective".
This was a deliberate act of Criminal Deception and Blatant Fraud.
The Pfizer execs responsible for this announcement and the "regulatory agencies" that approved Emergency Use of the "vaccine" on the back of it should be prosecuted for Criminal Fraud.

"95% effective" only referred to a reduction in mild symptoms.
It did not refer to any reduction in infection, transmission, serious illness, hospitalisations, ICU admissions or deaths.
Any reduction in the rate of  infection, transmission, serious illness, hospitalisations, ICU admissions or deaths are unknown. No data is available from any of the "trials" from any of the vaccine makers to make any assessment on these criteria.

Pfizer's own trial results reveal that Pfizer's "vaccine" only reduced mild symptoms by 19 to 29%, NOT the 95% fraudulently claimed in their deliberately deceptive PR Press Release.
This false claim of being "95% effective" was repeated without question or scientific analysis by the corrupt Mainstream Media and immediately broadcast around the world to a gullible mainstream media audience. The mainstream media, governments and "Public Health" officials are entirely complicit in the fraud.

The claim of being "95% effective" should have been extremely suspicious on its face to every mildly knowledgeable person and Pfizer should have been vigorously questioned on it. Moderna and Astrazeneca should have faced the same vigorous interrogation of their claims too.

At best (real numbers are lower) the flu vaccine is only 10 to 60% effective in reducing flu infections so where did this "sudden and miraculous" improvement with the Covid "vaccine" come from?
In addition scientists and researchers have been trying to produce safe and effective vaccines against other Coronaviruses for the last 20 years without success (see below) so how did they "suddenly and miraculously" succeed for Covid?

Peter Doshi, the Deputy Editor of the British Medical Journal and the exact opposite of a "fringe anti vaxxer" reported on Pfizer's fraudulent claims in the BMJ.
Peter Doshi's analysis was NOT reported in the mainstream media, nor by any government or government "health" official.

Peter Doshi: Pfizer and Moderna’s “95% effective” vaccines—we need more details and the raw data
Pfizer%2Btrial%2Bresults%2Bonly%2B19%252The "vaccine trials", carried out by the vaccine makers, are deliberately designed to be easily rigged to produce false, misleading and biased results.
All you have to do is carry out fewer PCR tests on the vaxxed group, than the unvaxxed control group. Which is how Pfizer (and presumably Moderna) got their fraudulent "95% effective" claim, by the selective use of less than 200 people out of a 43,000 participant trial.
Among the much larger number of non PCR tested people who displayed Covid or flu like symptoms there was only a slight reduction between the vaxxed and unvaxxed groups (as above 19 to 29%).

There are various other easy ways of rigging the results that could have been used to produce more favorable results for the "vaccine". We have no way of determining if, or to what extent, these were used.

For people who display stronger symptoms and are therefore more likely to produce a positive PCR test, test fewer people in the vaxxed group than the unvaxxed group.
Run the PCR test at fewer amplification cycles for the vaxxed group so you get fewer positive tests than the unvaxxed group.
Monitor the vaxxed group less rigorously than the unvaxxed group so more symptoms are reported in the unvaxxed group.

N.B. the criteria for an "infection" or "case" is the highly unreliable and inaccurate PCR test which was never designed to be used for diagnosis and is being deliberately run at far too many amplification cycles (40 to 45 cycles) in the UK, Europe and the US to produce masses of false positives in official government data.
The vaccine makers could choose how many amplification cycles they wanted to run the PCR test at for different people. We have no data to determine what they did.

It has to be stated that NONE of the Covid "vaccine trials" are rigorous scientific experiments designed to produce rigorously accurate scientific results.
They are exercises in deliberately manipulation conducted by the vaccine maker to produce the best possible results for their product, in order to sell it and make a profit.
This applies to every other vaccine or pharmaceutical drug trial, where the efficacy is routinely exaggerated and the adverse side effects are routinely minimized or suppressed.
Trials are ALWAYS funded by the drug maker (and their associates or cronies) and are ALWAYS conducted by "scientists" or "researchers" specifically selected to produce the most favorable result for the drug maker.  If a scientist is unwilling to bend the design of a trial to produce more favorable results the vaccine or pharmaceutical company will choose somebody else who will.

There is very little funding available for truly independent drug trials, or for testing the efficacy of non Big Pharma medications or treatments - there is no profit in it.
The billions of dollars of profits made by large pharmaceutical companies every year would be at severe risk if independent drug trials or trials of non Big Pharma medications or treatments were carried out. So the Big Pharma drug companies spend hundreds of millions every year bribing politicians, government regulatory agencies, government "health" agencies, government bureaucrats, government "scientific advisors", doctors, scientists and the media to prevent it.
Various "Think Tanks" or "non profit charities" such as the Wellcome Foundation or the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation exist purely to lobby for Big Pharma interests and increase their profits.


The deliberate criminal deception being carried out for the purported "safety" of the non safety tested Covid "vaccines" is truly horrific.

The people responsible for this deception should be going to jail for Medical Malpractice, Gross Criminal Negligence, Fraud, Corruption, Violations of Human Rights Laws, Violations of the Nuremberg Code, Crimes Against Humanity and Conspiracy to Commit Mass Murder.

They include Anthony Fauci, the FDA, CDC, NIH, NIAID, Matt Hancock, Chris Whitty, Patrick Vallance, members of SAGE, Nervtag, JCVI, NICE, MHRA, senior NHS managers, senior members of the WHO, the EU's health and regulatory officials, and members of the mainstream Press - particularly "health" editors and correspondents.
These people, government agencies, and "non profits" are all owned and controlled by Bill Gates and Big Pharma interests (see above).

Bill Gates alone has spent billions on bribing the WHO, various government agencies, "scientific advisers" and public officials, various "scientists" and academic organisations such as Neil Ferguson, Imperial College, Peter Horby, Oxford University, John Hopkins and IHME, and numerous mainstream media outlets such as the BBC, the Guardian, the Financial Times, NPR, and NBC.bill%2Bgates%2Bcontagious%2Binfluence%2BFact 1 - NOT safety tested
NONE of the Covid "vaccines" have been safety tested.
It would take at least 5 years to collect the long term safety data necessary to determine the medium and long term adverse side effects of these "vaccines".

Vaccines normally take 5 to 10 years to develop and run trials to collect the safety data necessary to determine the efficacy and any adverse side effects.
The Covid "vaccines" have been rushed out in 5 months.

The "vaccine trials" have been conducted with the fittest and healthiest people aged under 56 the drugs companies could find, plus a handful of the fittest 75 year olds they could find (I've seen some 75 year old marathon runners who are MUCH fitter and healthier than me).
Anyone with any pre-existing conditions, or comorbidities, or had allergies, or was immuno compromised, or was a smoker, or was obese, or had been in hospital for any medical condition in the last 10 years (except for things like broken legs or trauma) was banned from taking part in the "trials".

It is doubtful iyou would have been accepted onto the trial if you were on any long term medication.

As the main at risk groups for Covid are people aged over 70 with comorbities and the obese it is difficult to see how anyone could realistically describe this as a valid "trial".

Fact 2 - mRNA
The highly experimental mRNA technique used in the "vaccines" produced by Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have never been used on humans before and would take longer than 5 years to assess the numerous and currently completely unknown risks of potential severe adverse side effects.

The mRNA technique is NOT a vaccine in the normally understood sense.
Normal vaccines use some sort of attenuated, partial, or similar virus, plus adjutants, to provoke an immune response and produce immunity.

The mRNA technique injects foreign genetic material directly into all of your cells which hijacks your cells genetic processes to produce copies of the Covid virus spike protein, within your cells.
The spike proteins are then somehow ejected from your cells and are then expected to provoke an antibody response.
NOBODY knows what the long term effects of this meddling with the human body's normal genetic processes are. There has NOT been any long term testing done to find out.

Fact 3 - PEG
All of the mRNA "vaccines" use PEG as a lipid envelope to inject the foreign genetic material into your cells. PEG (Polyethylene Glycol) is known to be associated with provoking allergic reactions in a significant proportion of people and is also associated with causing autoimmune disorders for PEG containing drugs.

Fact 4 - Animal Trials
Animal Trials which could quickly answer or give good indications for at least some of the numerous serious safety concerns have been deliberately avoided. They could have been run in parallel with the human trials. Normally they are done BEFORE any humans are put at risk.

Animal Trials have been deliberately avoided, to AVOID finding serious health problems such as ADE, PEG allergies, autoimmune disorders, brain damage, nerve damage, infertility, mutations, cancer, birth defects in the offspring of vaccinated subjects etc. etc. caused by the "vaccines".

The only very brief animal "trial" was carried out by Astrazeneca on 6 macaques. The 3 vaxxed macaques got just as sick and infectious as the unvaxxed ones when exposed to the Covid virus. Human trials continued on regardless.

Fact 5 - Adverse Side Effects
The risks of severe adverse side effects are being covered up in a deliberate act of Criminal Deception.

This is the list of potential adverse side effects, known to be associated with other vaccines, that the FDA is monitoring for in the mass Human Medical Experiment of the roll out of the highly experimental and non safety tested Covid "vaccines".

While this is the fraudulent and deliberately deceptive list of potential adverse side effects produced by the UK government and NHS in this NHS doc
As you can see ALL of the potential severe adverse side effects have been deliberately omitted from the fraudulent NHS doc:

ADE (antibody disease enhancement, also known as pathogenic priming)
PEG allergies
Autoimmune Disorders
Brain damage
Nerve damage
Encephalitis (swelling of the brain)
Transverse Myelitis and Multiple Sclerosis
Anaphylactic shock
Convulsions / Seizures
Infertility / Miscarriages
Birth Defects
Heart Attacks

The above NHS document is deliberate criminal fraud.
Everyone responsible for its production should be going to jail.

Fact 6 - Criminal Deception on Efficacy, Safety and alternative Treatments
The lack of efficacy of the Covid "vaccines" is being deliberately covered up and lied about. 

From the above NHS guidance doc:
"The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus."

This is a 100% categorical LIE and a completely fraudulent statement.

Fact 6.1
The Covid "vaccines" are NOT safe. They have NOT been safety tested.
Some of the potential adverse side effects listed above have already been reported such as:

The death of a perfectly healthy 56 year old Miami doctor with no pre-existing medical conditions, who developed the extremely rare autoimmune condition ITP two days after getting the Pfizer jab, causing all his blood platelets to be destroyed.
He died of a stroke two weeks later, despite the doctor immediately recognising the potential seriousness of the blood spots suddenly appearing on his hands, immediately going to hospital and being put in intensive care.
There are multiple reports of uncontrollable full body convulsions with no known cure.

Registered Nurse Shawn Skelton speaks out after suffering full body convulsions from the Moderna "vaccine".

Similar convulsions have been reported for the Pfizer "vaccine".

Woman who suffered convulsions after taking Pfizer Covid jab being screened for permanent neurological damage
There are reports of previously healthy people having seizures and ending up in intensive care


And reports of multi system inflammatory syndrome leading to heart problems and intensive care
multi%2Bsystem%2Binflammatory%2Bsyndrom%Dozens of elderly people have died from fever and other adverse side effects caused by the "vaccine".

So the only people who actually need protection from Covid are dying from the "vaccine".
Norway has now banned elderly people over 80 from being vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine.
Most of the adverse reactions to the Covid "vaccines" are being covered up by the mainstream media.
They are definitely NOT making headline news.
Information on adverse reactions is being censored by Youtube, Facebook and other social Media Platforms.

What can you do if you are injured by the Covid shot?
Fact 6.2 The Covid "Vaccines" are NOT effective.
See the section above on efficacy.
The Pfizer "vaccine" only reduces mild symptoms by 19 to 29%, does not prevent infection or transmission, and has zero proven efficacy at reducing serious illness, hospitalisation or death.

Fact 6.3 The Best Protection Against Covid is NOT the Covid Vaccines
The best protection against Covid-19 is a strong immune system, a healthy diet, plenty of fresh air and exercise.
All of which REDUCE Big Pharma drug profits, reduce the cost of providing Healthcare, and reduce the cost of running the NHS.
So why ISN'T the NHS recommending these simple solutions to protect people from Covid?
A: The NHS works for Big Pharma drug companies directly against the interests of ordinary people.

If Matt Hancock, NICE, PHE, and the NHS were interested in protecting people from Covid and reducing serious illness, hospitalisations and deaths, they would be:-

Recommending everyone take Vitamin D, C and Zinc supplements to strengthen their immune systems.
You need a minimum of 2,000 IU's of D a day to protect yourself from Covid.
Elderly, vulnerable, and obese people or those who are currently deficient will need more.

Prescribing free Vitamin D, C and Zinc supplements to everyone over 65, every Care Home Resident, every hospital patient, every NHS and Care Home worker.

Scrap the counter productive and completely useless mass PCR testing of asymptomatics and "Track and Trace" which are wasting billions and don't stop anyone dying of Covid.

Spend a few million offering and conducting free Vitamin D tests and ensuring everyone has levels above 33 ng/ml and preferably around 50.
This simple step alone would SAVE thousands of lives and billions of pounds in current healthcare costs by preventing 80% of hospitalisations for Covid.
Practically nobody dies of Covid if their D levels are above 33 ng/ml unless they were already dying of something else.covid19%2Bdeath%2Brate%2Bversus%2Bvitami
Correcting the current SEVERE vitamin D deficiency by immediately prescribing 10,000 IU's of D a day to elderly and vulnerable people as recommended by the Royal Society.

Treating outpatients early as soon as symptoms appear with Vitamin D, C and Zinc supplements, Ivermectin and Bromhexine, instead of leaving patients to rot until they either recover by themselves or become so ill they have to be sent to hospital.
Current NHS protocols are Medical Malpractice and Gross Criminal Negligence.

Use the full range of effective Covid treatments for hospitalised patients. All of which Matt Hancock has banned the NHS from using. 

The list of the most effective Covid treatments and preventatives is available in these two articles:

Swiss doctors - On the treatment of covid

Dr Thomas E. Levy, MD: Covid-19. How Can I Cure Thee? Let me count the ways. 

New UK Meta Data Analysis Early outpatient treatment with Ivermectin+Zinc cuts hospitalisations & deaths by 80-90% 

Large recent clinical trial of Ivermectin in Brazil - Deaths were cut by 90%
Best Covid Treatment To Date By Far! Ivermectin + Doxycycline + Zinc shows astonishing results in new clinical studies, cutting hospitalisations & deaths by 90% 

Train NHS doctors and nurses in the best preventions and treatments for flu like infectious diseases.
Almost all of them are currently completely clueless.

Using the above treatments and preventions would cut Covid hospitalisations and deaths by at least 90%.
But Matt Hancock, Bill Gates, Big Pharma, the vaccine makers and their cronies are NOT interested in cutting the death toll.

N.B. Everyone should have been advised to take Vitamin D, C and Zinc supplements from February 2020 and get as much sun as possible in April to boost their D levels - as I did.
The fact that Matt Hancock, Whitty, Vallance, SAGE, NICE, PHE, senior NHS managers, the BBC and mainstream media "health" correspondents did NOT do this, proves that they are all completely incompetent, corrupt, or both, and ALL of them need to be FIRED.
Most of them need to be JAILED for the rest of their lives.

Fact 6.4
There are many other lies and criminal deceptions in the above NHS "guidance on Covid" - I won't go through them all but the following statement:

"There's no evidence the COVID-19 vaccine is unsafe if you're pregnant. But more evidence is needed before you can be routinely offered the vaccine."

Should read:

"There's no evidence the Covid vaccines are safe in pregnancy because they haven't been tested on pregnant women. There are significant unanswered safety concerns on placenta formation, so you should avoid getting the Covid jab if you are pregnant or intending to become pregnant in the future.
Boost your Vitamin D, C and Zinc levels to protect yourself and your unborn child from Covid.

There is also no evidence the vaccines are safe for lactating women and what effect they might have on breastfeeding babies, so again you should avoid the vaccines and strengthen your immune system with a healthy diet and vitamin supplements.

There is a near zero risk of becoming seriously ill from Covid if you are reasonably fit and healthy and under 50.
The Covid vaccines are NOT recommended for any woman of child bearing age."

Fact 7 - Lack of Benefits
For anyone reasonably fit and healthy and under 70 the risks from Covid are vanishingly small.
These risks can be further reduced by 90% with adequate levels of Vitamin D, C and Zinc, early treatment with Ivermectin+Zinc and Bromhexine, and the use of best treatments for hospitalised patients.

The risks to relatively healthy people under 70 from the Covid "vaccines" greatly outweigh the risks from Covid-19.
The relative risk to people over 70 and those with pre-existing comorbidities or autoimmune conditions should be assessed according to the circumstances of the individual patient.

Even for people over 80 the risk of the "vaccine" may well be greater than from the virus - many elderly people have been reported dying immediately after getting the jab and they would have been much better off by taking Vitamin D, C and Zinc supplements. They wouldn't have died from the side effects of the vaccine.

The risk from Covid has ALWAYS been exaggerated and the best ways to protect yourself have always been SUPPRESSED in order to stoke the fear factor and get people to accept the dangerously rushed, non safety tested and probably ineffective "vaccines".

Are you in the 99.99%?

Almost NOBODY would be volunteering to take a dangerously untested and ineffective, highly experimental, new drug with completely unknown medium and long term adverse side effects, for a disease with a 99.9%+ survival rate, if they hadn't been scared sh*tless and brainwashed by relentless disinfo propaganda and constant 24/7 Fear Porn on the TV for nearly a year.

And before anyone says this is a "vaccine" and not a "drug", vaccines are given to healthy people so the standard of safety and efficacy should be much higher not lower than an experimental new drug intended to treat people who are already ill.

Fact 8 Informed Consent
Informed Consent is NOT being obtained for any of the Covid "vaccines".
Informed Consent requires the patient to be fully informed about the risks and benefits of any proposed treatment.

The lack of benefit, lack of efficacy, risk of severe adverse side effects, and alternative treatments are being DELIBERATELY covered up for the Covid "vaccines".

Not obtaining Informed Consent violates Human Rights Law, the 1947 Nuremberg Code and where mass violations occur (as in the Covid Mass Vaccination programs) constitute a prima facie case of a Crime Against Humanity.

Everyone promoting or responsible for administering the Covid "vaccines" should be going to JAIL.
This includes Matt Hancock, Whitty, Vallance, SAGE, MHRA, NICE, senior NHS managers and the media.
The equivalents in the US - Fauci, Birx, Redfield, FDA, CDC, NIH, NIAID, Joe Biden, State Governors and State "Health" officials should also be going to jail.
As should many people in other countries, senior members of the WHO, and Bill Gates.

Covid since April.

3. What Vaccine Trials?

Great analysis on the massive deceptions, disinfo propaganda, and statistical manipulation being used to sell the "vaccines" and the woeful lack of meaningful testing.

There are no completed trials for Covid "Vaccines".
Trial data is not expected to be published until LATE 2022, when the trial completes. This will still only mean 2 years of safety data being collected when normally new vaccines are not approved until at least 5 years of safety data has been collected.
"Nobody knows what adverse side effects might show up 2 or 4 years down the line." Astrazeneca's CEO on why he was demanding Immunity From Liability for any damages caused by the Covid "vaccines".

"If you decide to have Pfizer and BioNTechs experimental mRNA-based BNT162b2 (BNT) vaccine, or any other claimed COVID 19 vaccine for that matter, you are a test subject in a human drug trial."
