Menticide – “Imprinting upon fearful minds. The beginning of menticide is a state of diffuse and pervasive fear. Strong negative emotions of anxiety and fear, coupled with contradictions and confusion, prime the mind to seek emotional (not necessarily logical) relief. A power-hungry ruling class, intent on dominating a society, have the best success when they can manipulate the collective feelings of the people in a certain way – a way of death to logic and reason – a way of menticide.” – Winston Smith

They’ve Been Wanting to Kill You for a While Now, Ep. 2 Ike Tried to Warn Us – “Would you like to know the poker tell? The JFK investigation was a sham. And once our elected leaders allowed a sham to play out in plain sight? And just crammed it down the American public’s throats and said Eat this. And gaslighted you as a “conspiracy theorist”. And the public said, Delicious. May I have another? It was all over. Now Real Power was emboldened. Pay attention to who cannot be investigated. If you haven’t figured out by now, I don’t give a good goddamn about either of our Uniparty Intramural Wings of Puppetry and I believe I have a pretty good idea how the Divide and Conquer Psy Op works. Ask yourself why the Savior Republican Party is not joining in with Paul or Sen. Ron Johnson and “saving America from the commies”. Does anyone see a real investigation with teeth and extreme levels of motivation to save the world and our nation and to get to the Truth? Or does it look like a bullshit pro wrestling work?” – Sage Hana   – SAGE IS ON A ROLL AND SHE IS RIGHT!!!!!

Thunderstruck ⚡⚡⚡ (VIDEO) – “One can never get enough AC/DC. This is 100 octane for the anarchist soul, fam.” – Monica Hughes PhD

A NEW wave of pandemics could be sparked by never-before-seen microbes locked in Tibetan glaciers if they are released by ice melting, scientists warn – Shivali Best  – COMBINING COVID AND VIRUSES WITH CLIMATE CHANGE. BRILLIANT MOVE BY THOSE PESKY ELITISTS! WE ALL KNOW THAT CLIMATE IS PART OF THE “BIG PICTURE”. SPECIAL THANKS TO WINSTON SMITH FOR BRINGING THIS ARTICLE TO ATTENTION IN HIS MENTICIDE POST ABOVE!!!!!!

The Southwest is bone dry. Now, a key water source is at risk. – “Climate change and worsening drought have driven water stores to dangerous lows. Now the federal government is telling states to drastically cut back. California’s Imperial Valley, with its vast swaths of farmlands, uses more water than its neighboring water districts — and could be a target for much of the cuts. – Lara Korte – PUSH THE CLIMATE NARRATIVE AND CUT OFF THE WATER SUPPLY FOR FOOD. WONDER IF THEY KEEP THOSE GOLF COURSES WATERED THOUGH. THE ELITE ARE DOUBLING DOWN. SOUNDS LIKE MISMANAGEMENT BIG TIME TO ME WITH A LITTLE GEOENGINEERING MIXED IN!!!!

Are Google Chatbots Impersonating Humans? – “In a January paper, Google warned the ability of an artificial intelligence chatbot to impersonate a human being could be problematic if people don’t realize it’s not a real human.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guilty are Now Hiding Humanitarian Catastrophe (VIDEO) with Dr. Pierre Kory – “Well, the dark powers who pushed the vax bioweapon have stopped ignoring the growing massive deaths and injuries and are now trying to shut people up.” – Greg Hunter

The Long-Covid Warriors hope for Autumn Brain-Fog. – “One of the signature symptoms most frequently applied to long COVID is this concept of “ Brain fog”, a suitably unscientific neurological side-effect. If we are to accept the premise that brain-fog is indeed a long-term side effect of the virus, and that the current vaccine regime doesn’t protect from transmission or dangerous side-effects, then why are there zero studies investigating possible accelerating effects vaccination & Covid together may pose to people developing & suffering from extreme side-effects. Could vaccination be amplifying Long Covid?” – Gerry O’Neill

Greetings from sunny Shanghai! – “Zero COVID China offers many amazing sights that I could almost see from the window of my quarantine hotel: – Edward Slavsquat

The Great Awakening Continues – Ve Vil Not Eet Ze Bugz, Klaus – Tom Luongo

Woke Is A (Terrible) Religion – “There’s only one possible outcome to a death cult. In any case, the interesting question isn’t really whether or not Woke is a religion, but whether it’s a good religion. And to that, I think, the answer is obvious: it is not. Religion, considered as a social technology, serves a number of very important functions within a society.” – John Carter – JOHN CARTER NAILS WOKEISM. GREAT READ!!!!!!!

Reality Can Not Be Canceled – “Russian tennis ace Elena Rybakina short circuits Ukrainian Borg.” -The Good Citizen – GOOD READ AS USUAL!!!!

EVs and “Vaccines” – “Electric cars and “vaccines” are similar in that both have delusional defenders – believers who are immune to reason, hostile toward damning facts – who cling to their beliefs with a devotion that is cultic. It does not matter, for instance, that the “vaccines” – as they are styled – do not do the one thing that has heretofore always been the thing that has defined a vaccine, which is to provoke an immune response in the persons who take them, It does not matter to people who defend EVs that they are – objectively, factually – not “clean,” if by that term one means their manufacture and use results in the emanation into the environment of less of the stuff that is asserted by some to be responsible for imminent, catastrophic (their word) “climate change.” Notice the similarities here, too. The same asserted catastrophism. The same exaggeration and misrepresentation of the supposed problem – so as to justify the “cure” for it. But reason is an ineffective counter to belief. You might as well have tried to reason with a member of the People’s Temple about to drink the Kool Aid. The cultist wants to drink it. And that would be ok, if they didn’t also want you to drink it, too.” – Eric Peters

Humanity Is Learning That The Rules Are All Made Up And Can Be Re-Written At Any Time – Caitlin Johnstone

The All-Out Commitment To Destroy Fossil Fuels… Will It Succeed? – “What the Biden apparatchiks are really aiming to do is use $120 oil prices as an excuse to accelerate their promotion (at taxpayer expense) of high-cost green energy. As Biden recently put it: Congress could help right away by passing clean energy tax credits and investments that I have proposed. A dozen CEOs of America’s largest utility companies told me earlier this year that my plan would reduce the average family’s annual utility bills by $500 and accelerate our transition from energy produced by autocrats. What utter clap-trap. Autocrats? Like those in the Persian Gulf where Joe is heading on bended knee?” – David Stockman

Protestor screams: “We love Killing Babies” (VIDEO) – Political Clips 4 – CAN IT GET ANY SICKER THAN THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monticello is going woke — and trashing Thomas Jefferson’s legacy in the process – “The new emphasis is the culmination of a 10-year effort to balance the historical record, officials of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the estate, have said. But visitors complain that employees go out of their way to belittle Jefferson and his life. “The tour guides play ‘besmirchment derby,’ never missing a chance to defame this brilliant, complex man,”” – Mary Kay Linge and Jon Levine

Was the Group Abe was Associated with the WEF? – “The official story is desperately trying to explain the motive behind the assassination of Shinzo Abe as being linked to a fringe political party that had criticized him ahead of Sunday’s upper house election. However, there are no direct connections between the suspected shooter and the NHK Party. The “group” that nobody wants to talk about is allegedly non-other than Schwab’s World Economic Forum.” – Martin Armstrong

On Bended Knee to Riyadh – “Despite earlier calling the world’s head-chopping/public whippings capital “a pariah state,” the fake Biden will show up in Riyadh later this week — on bended knee — to push for what the Saudis aren’t likely to deliver. Under the so-called OPEC+ production agreement, the Saudis reportedly will increase oil production to 11.0 million barrels per day in August. At the same time, the Saudis are committed to the OPEC+ agreement with Russia. Their bilateral relations benefit both countries. The Saudis are unlikely to jeopardize their own interests to serve hegemon USA’s anti-Russia agenda.” – Stephen Lendman

The Myth behind the Federal Power to Strike Down State Laws – “Why do Americans believe that state and local laws are subject to veto by federal policy makers but the federal government is to be the sole judge of its own laws? Federal elites want it that way.” – Ryan McMaken

The Catastrophic Consequences Of Biden’s Open Border Democrats And The Media Want You To Ignore – “There isn’t any American parent, who should be made to suffer the pain, anguish, and grief of burying one of their children, but there’s a perfect storm of criminal activity and evil found in the coordination of the China fentanyl crime syndicate, the Mexican drug cartels and the Biden regime’s criminal abandonment of their lawful charge on the southern border to defend America from such activity, that’s resulting in thousands of Americans being poisoned each year by fentanyl.” – Justin O. Smith

The SSRI–Mass Shooting Connection – “Perhaps the concealed weapon is not the gun but what is found in the medicine cabinets of young men.” – Leesa K. Donner

Why Nations Fail – “The irony is that the suppression of dissent is the suppression of competing ideas that generate systemic stability via rapid adaptation. Nations that appear stable may fail once they’re under pressure. What do I mean by “under pressure”? Pressure can come from many sources: invasion, civil war, prolonged scarcities of essentials, natural disasters, financial crises, droughts, pandemics and social disorder triggered by inequality and corruption. Pressure diminishes the availability of resources, and exacerbates inequalities as political favoritism divides “winners” (elites protected and enriched by state intervention) at the expense of the “losers,” i.e. the commoners, who bear the brunt of job losses, financial risks, scarcities and deprivations.” – Charles Hugh Smith

French, German Leaders Warn Populations “Prepare For Total Cut-Off Of Russian Gas” As Social Unrest Looms – Tyler Durden

When Governments Do Truly STUPID Things…. – “They tend to collapse spectacularly and the “powers that be” almost-never survive politically — and frequently physically. Sri Lanka is the latest example; they are literally bankrupt, having bought into the “green” thing and then… oops.  Germany is facing an existential crisis of its own making as well. Deciding to go “green/woke” for energy they foolishly shut down both coal and nuclear generation, relying on Russian gas for that which they couldn’t manage to produce reliably from renewable sources. Renewable sources such as wind and solar are not reliable and never will be; The UK is in serious trouble as well. Energy bills this winter are threatening to more than double. The Dutch decided to try to effectively expropriate their farmer’s land by, for “green/woke” reasons once again, mandating the non-use of nitrogen fertilizers among other steps. Some allege the true purpose is to effectively destroy the industry and seize the land, but the underlying reality of that does not matter. The farmers are fighting back and, by some accounts, the nation may be rather close to insurrection or even civil war. We’ll see.” – Karl Denninger

Spicy takes on global energy and geopolitics – “Getting serious about the deeply unserious ESG policies that made this mess. “Halte mein bier und sieh dir das an!” “Germany has been playing at ESG and letting the greens run riot in yet another attempt to prove out the age old adage about What did socialists use for light before candles?” “Electricity.” The German citizens can see what’s coming:” – El Gato Malo

ECONOMIC NEWS

Another hot inflation report and the start of earnings season make for a challenging week ahead – Patti Domm

The Bidenized Silver Market – “In this brief essay, I will outline what has happened to the U.S, silver market, since the Bidenistas came to power: President Joe Biden and his co-conspirators in the U.S. Treasury and in the Federal Reserve banking cartel have embarked on a path of destruction for the U.S. Dollar. By extending artificially-low interest rates, they have propped up equities markets. But currency inflation is now on the march. The markets and general economy have entered a twilight zone of gross monetary and market manipulation and speculative excess. These excesses have also extended into the commodities and precious metals markets. As I’m penning this, most coin dealers don’t want to part with any of their bullion or pre-1965 junk silver inventories for anything less than a 22% premium over the Comex spot price of silver. Who can blame them?” – James Wesley Rawles

Bank of England Vaulted Gold Has Plunged 258 Tonnes During Selloff – “Where did the 258 tonnes of gold go that has left the Bank of England’s vault?” – Alasdair Macleod

Sharp sell-off for gold and silver – “In a febrile atmosphere, gold and silver futures continued to slide priced in dollars this week. Gold was down $72 from last Friday’s close at $1738 in European trade this morning, and silver down 72 cents at $19.12. Volumes in the Comex gold contract were high, while in silver, less so. The combination of a fall in price on high volumes following previous declines is symptomatic of a final sell off ahead of a trend reversal. ” – Alasdair Macleod

VERSE FOR THE DAY

Philippians 4:8    Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

LYRIC FOR THE WEEK

Keep your head down

I
I want you
I want you to
I want you to march
Eyes goes right, shoulder arms
Left wheel turn, show your charms
Change your clothes, cut your hair
Ain’t no joke, ain’t no place for kids

When the flags are high, hear the battle cry
Treaty gone, see the bandit fly
Dig that trench, watch that blast
Shell-shock come, comin’ fast
Name and rank, on parade
We might get laid by a hand grenade
Do you know what it means?
Do you know what it means?

This
Means
War

This means war
This means war
This means war
I said this means war
This means war
This means war

The bullet got your number on it

Run for cover
Hit the dirt
Call for your mother

I
I need you
I need you to
I need you to fire
Cock your gun, wet your sights
Get the bull, dead to rights
Volunteer, one pace back
On the beach
Ain’t no place for kids

Well, the flack is high on the bomber run
You don’t talk back to an ack-ack gun
Fire rage, and you’re in a blitz
Keep your head, or you’re blown to bits
Name and rank on parade
Might get laid by a hand grenade
You know what it means?
Do you know what it means?

This
Means
War

Who go there, is it friend or foe?
Propaganda time on the radio
Top brass shout as they clown around
And peace talks die in Geneva town
Do you know what it means? (This means war)
Do you know what it means? (This means war)
Do you know what it means? (This means war)
Do you know what it means? (This means…)

This means war
This means war
This means war
I said this means war
This means war
This means war

( This Means War by  Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Brian Johnson )
