NEWS ( THE BIG PICTURE EDITION )
The Ever-changing and Fully Manipulated Mind of the American Psyche? – “A distinct pattern has emerged concerning many readers and listeners of ‘news,’ including many alternate news and reporting sites. It seems that there is a tendency to concentrate solely on headlines, “shock and awe,” numbers, suspicious and unfounded ‘scientific studies,’ and the most ‘popular’ personality’s opinions, instead of searching only for absolute truth. The many gravitate toward individual stories, compartmentalizing each singular event instead of looking at the totality of the problem. Some of the biggest obstacles are attempts to fight against the narrative while at the same time accepting that narrative, and trying to refute the symptoms. One example of this idiocy is accepting that ‘covid’ is real when it has never once been isolated or identified, while at the same time claiming that it is not as dangerous as the state is projecting. This kind of backward logic and doublespeak is confusing, and is exactly what the powerful plot to bury in the minds of their subjects.” – Gary D. Barnett – EXCELLENT POINT AND GOOD ARTICLE FROM GARY, ONCE AGAIN!!!!
IT’S NOT SAFE OR EFFECTIVE – “Marathon Man debuted in 1976, so a majority of people have probably never seen this movie or this terrifyingly sadistic scene. Szell is trying to make sure his bounty of diamonds obtained from his days at Auschwitz are safe. Szell probes Babe’s mouth until he finds a cavity and jams his instrument into it causing tremendous pain. He then then puts oil of clove on the tooth and it relieves the pain. He then states, “relief is comfort”. That is a perfect analogy to this covid cavity scheme. The powers that be lockdown the world, destroying small businesses and putting tens of millions out of work, then throw some stimmies and unemployment payments at those they have hurt and say, “relief is comfort”. Then they proceed to drill into a live nerve as their next act.” – Jim Quinn – VERY GOOD READ FROM JIM!!!!!!!!!!
“More Stringent Measures” – “The Little Doctor now says “much more stringent measures” should have been imposed on “asymptomatic people” – which of course means on everyone – back in 2020. This is, as Mr. Spock used to say, absolutely fascinating – coming from a man who is himself an “asymptomatic” spreader. An actual one – as opposed to an asserted one. In that he actually has, by his own admission, gotten the “virus” – despite wearing multiple “masks” and receiving (so he says) multiple “vaccines,” neither of these “measures” having prevented him from getting and spreading the very sickness he insists required “much more stringent measures.”” – Eric Peters
The policy crisis no one made – “Truly success has 1000 fathers, but failure is an orphan. The jersey changing is getting pretty amazing and the need to distance from this dreadful loser of a policy ever more acute. Honestly, with all these blameless people running around, it’s becoming pretty darn puzzling how all this happened. No one seems to have caused it. – El Gato Malo
Dutch Farmers Versus the WEF: Elitists’ Goal: Wipe Out Good Food – “The Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy’s Food Compass, unveiled in late 2021, is another Great Reset tool designed to discourage consumption of animal foods by falsely rating them as unhealthy, and encouraging consumption of ultraprocessed foods by giving them high nutritional ratings Food Compass rates Frosted Mini Wheats as three times healthier than ground beef, with a score of 87 out of 100, compared to 26 for ground beef Food Compass also gives high scores to fries, Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, chocolate covered almonds and almond M&Ms, while rating whole egg fried in butter, cheddar cheese and ground beef as foods that should be avoided. Based on this tool, you’ll be healthier if you replace whole egg, cheddar cheese and ground beef with candy.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola – AND HOW MANY SHEEPLE WILL BELIEVE THIS “BS”!!!!!!
Irish anti-lockdown activists targeted by Soros and Gates funded report – “The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) is a London-based think tank allegedly founded to initiate discussions to help improve police responses to extremism. It is a non-Irish entity. Now, in more recent times this think-tank have taken on the self appointed role as guardians against disinformation. Curiously, in 2021, the good people of ISD Global developed a sudden fascination with all things Irish and at the end of the year produced a report. It goes without saying that this is yet another, progressively left leaning, and heftily funded non-governmental body claiming responsibility for defining the “Truth” of the world around us.” – Gerry O’Neill – INTERESTING READ FROM GERRY!!!!!
33 Dead & Sick Friends Since Our Wedding Only 8 Months Ago. All 33 Vaxxed. A “Vaccine Death & Disease Cluster.” – “Yes, you read correctly. There are (so far) 33 friends and relatives dead or sick since our wedding eight months ago. I’ve done the research. All 33 were vaxxed. Every one of them. This is a “vaccine death and disease cluster.” This is like the Love Canal, New York, cancer cluster of the 1970s. It can’t be ignored when you see so many people dead, or very ill in just one group.” -Wayne Allyn Root
Blind As a Bat Out of Wuhan – “The inclusivity game has no winners.” – The Good Citizen – ANOTHER GOOD ONE FROM THE GOOD CITIZEN!!!!
Whole World is a Banana Republic (VIDEO) with Bill Holter – “A few months back, precious metals expert and financial writer Bill Holter predicted the economy was going to tank, and today, the U.S. is officially in a recession. Holter says it’s not just America buckling under enormous debt, but the entire world.” – Greg Hunter – AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, I LINK A LOT OF BILL’S INTERVIEWS. HE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES AND ALWAYS A GOOD LOGICAL LISTEN. SO LISTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lying Game – “It may be that we have reached a point where the people in the ruling class of society, this includes the managerial and administrative classes, no longer feel any connection to the rest of us. They lie and willingly repeat lies, because it causes no harm to them and solves immediate concerns. Like people in clannish societies, deceiving outsiders brings no penalty as outsiders simply do not count. The ruling class is now an alien clan that is indifferent to the rest of us. Alternatively, this evolving class awareness may bring with it a sense that the people over whom they rule are a constant threat. ” – The Z Man
Is Nationalism a Good Thing? It Depends. – “Although the term has been long used by historians to matter-of-factly describe the development of national states, it is clear that in casual modern parlance, the term is often little more than a nonspecific insult along the lines of “fascist.” So this leaves us with an important question: Is nationalism ever a good thing? The answer is “it depends.” It depends on whether nationalism is acting as a brake to state power or a catalyst for greater state power.” – Ryan McMaken
The Genetic Panopticon: We’re All Suspects in a DNA Lineup, Waiting to be Matched with a Crime – “Be warned: the DNA detectives are on the prowl. Whatever skeletons may be lurking on your family tree or in your closet, whatever crimes you may have committed, whatever associations you may have with those on the government’s most wanted lists: the police state is determined to ferret them out. In an age of overcriminalization, round-the-clock surveillance, and a police state eager to flex its muscles in a show of power, we are all guilty of some transgression or other. No longer can we consider ourselves innocent until proven guilty. Now we are all suspects in a DNA lineup waiting to be matched up with a crime. Suspect State, meet the Genetic Panopticon. DNA technology in the hands of government officials will complete our transition to a Surveillance State ” – John & Nisha Whitehead
Washington Post Reports DOJ Conducting Grand Jury with Witness Testimony Targeting President Trump for Seditious Conspiracy Against Government – “Do they want a civil war? It might sound good around the DC cocktail party circuit, whipped into a frenzy by the Lawfare crowd, but the outcome would not be in their interests. Given the severity of manipulative politics and DC based media in the past several years, I would not take the Washington Post article at face value. WaPo represents the interests of the Intelligence Community side of the deep state apparatus. Everything the WaPo creatures write is part of an advanced and coordinated DC engineering effort that has multiple motives; the face value of the one they present is never the real agenda.” – Sundance
Merrick Garland Refuses to Rule Out Charging Trump Over January 6th – “Garland made the statement in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, saying that “we pursue justice without fear or favor. We intend to hold everyone — anyone — who is criminally responsible for the events surrounding January 6 or any attempt to interfere with the lawful transfer of power from one administration to another accountable.”” – Eric Lendrum – YOU KNOW DAMN WELL HE IS GOING AFTER TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A Culture of Crime Complacency in Pritzker’s Illinois – “Some background: On Jan. 13, 2021, during the post-election lame duck legislative session, a 764 page opus known as Illinois HB 3653, ironically called the “SAFE-T Act” (Safety, Accountability, Fairness, Equity – Today Act), was rushed through by Democrats in the state capitol. “The law passed in the wee hours of the morning,” recalled Republican State Rep. Tony McCombie. “[The Democrats] cut off debate. They didn’t appear to have the votes as it took several minutes to browbeat their members to their switches [voting button] to call the final vote.” But it passed in both houses and was signed into law with great fanfare by Democrat Gov. JB Pritzker. The legislation is a veritable wish list for progressives opposed to the very idea of incarceration – or even effective policing. To start, criminal suspects arrested on charges ranging from petty theft to murder (yes, murder) will no longer have to post bail, because cash bail will go away entirely.” – Mike Koolidge – AND THIS CLOWN WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT!!!!!!
The Phoniest, Most PR-Intensive War Of All Time – “The president and first lady of Ukraine have posed for a romantic photoshoot with Vogue magazine, wherein President Volodymyr Zelensky waxes poetical about his love for his darling wife. Now, I know what you’re thinking: how is Zelensky making time for a Vogue photoshoot amidst his busy schedule of PR appearances for other major western institutions? I mean this is after all the same Volodymyr Zelensky who has been so busy making video appearances for the Grammy Awards, the Cannes Film Festival, the World Economic Forum and probably the Bilderberg group as well, and having meetings with celebrities like Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, and Bono and the Edge from U2. It’s as busy a PR tour as he could possibly have without having a discussion about the strategic importance of long-range artillery with Elmo on Sesame Street.” – Caitlin Johnstone – CAITLIN NAILS IT WITH THIS ONE. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS WAR IS FAKE AND PHONY!!!!!!!!!!!
Grain Inflation: Starve the Poor, Feed the Rich – “The war and inflation – who is winning? As readers will know from an earlier post, I take a different view. The global food crisis is a consequence of commodity price speculation on Wall St and the CME – not directly the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Readers may think this controversial, but bear with me,” – Ann Pettifor
Why Do South American Drug Runners Keep Getting Caught With Uranium? – “As Russia, China, and other nations hostile to the US boost their presence within South America, should it come as a surprise to find uranium being trafficked by South American drug runners? There are reasons to believe that this has been happening under the table for some time now, and it is not good at all. Venezuela has very close ties with Iran.” – J.G. Martinez D
Yep, it’s true! They’re coming for your guns. – “Democrat Rep. David N “Spare Me The B——- about Constitutional Rights” Cicilline and others have said the quiet part out loud: they want to ban almost all semi-automatic weapons in common use. If you wondered why the nation’s socialist news cabal American Pravda suddenly decided to drop the terms “assault weapon” and “assault rifle” from their propaganda lexicon, your answer was soon forthcoming in their triumphant announcement of their next onslaught against your sensible civil rights: “Democrats push for 1st semi-automatic gun ban in 20 years.” If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard a thousand times: all they want is “commonsense,” “sensible,” or “reasonable” gun control. Except they never define those terms — on purpose. Well, now we know what they mean. They want to ban almost everything aside from a few “manually operated” firearms. The most important section of the bill is section 2, the “Definitions,” which sets out the scope of what the bill covers.” – D. Parker
Black Sea and three musketeers – “As the conflict in Ukraine slouches toward Odessa, the war gets elevated to the sphere of a romantic adventure. The absurdity of raking up a non-existent controversy over the Russian missile strike on Odessa on Friday casts Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for the second time in a lead role with three swashbuckling musketeers — US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, UN Secretary-General António Guterres and EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell. ” – M. K. Bhadrakumar
So if Europe wants to escalate against Russia who foots the bill? – “Some think it’s time for NATO to show its ‘overwhelming power’ against Putin, but as always, the devil is in the details.” – Doug Bandow
Keeping The Mideast Safer For Dictators – “The so-called ‘Abraham Agreements’ forged by Trump & Co. were a cynical bad joke. They forced despotic Arab regimes to reveal that their under the table dealings with Israel that had been going on for decades. I watched all this happen. First under Obama, Trump, and now Biden, the Mideast’s people were relentlessly squeezed by dictatorial rulers backed and armed by the United States and Britain. The US Air Force and British RAF provided the aircraft, pilots, and ground crews that ravaged remote Yemen and slew large numbers of its people – just as they did in Afghanistan. The Saudis, Egyptians and Emiratis hope to rule the Arab world and Red Sea littoral as cat’s paws for what I call the ‘American Raj.’ It’s brutal and cynical but readily understood by the Mideast’s people.” – Eric S. Margolis
Putting The Stag in Stagflation – “Since summer of 2020, we’ve argued that stagflation would be the ultimate outcome of the Covid lockdowns and resulting surge of QE and cash creation. And now here we are. Later this week, the first official guess at U.S. Q2 GDP will be released, and it is very likely to show another contraction. The long-standing definition of a recession has been two consecutive quarters of economic contraction, and since Q1 came in at -1.6%, any negative print this Thursday will place the U.S. economy “officially” into recession.” – Craig Hemke
Most Americans have ‘little to no savings and nearly HALF are falling deeper into debt because of rising inflation’: Economists put chance of recession at 47 percent over the next 12 months – “A LendingTree survey of 1,008 Americans in July found that 43 percent of consumers will take on additional debt in the next six months” – Ronny Reyes
SURVIVAL, PREPAREDNESS AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY NEWS
5 Benefits of Physical Activity and Exercise – “There are many benefits of physical activity. Exercise leads to a healthy body. We all know that, right? Unfortunately it’s woefully lacking in today’s modern society. If you are truly preparedness-minded beyond Level 1 or 2, then you really need to prepare your body too.” – Ken Jorgustin
How To Start A Garden: 101 – “This article will go over the essential elements to consider to help you plan your first garden space, but the simple answer is: Just start gardening, don’t give up gardening, and the rest will fall into place. If you are here reading this, honestly interested in trying to grow fresh food for you and your family, you’re already on the right track! The most essential element is a willingness to learn and try!’ – DeannaCat – THIS MAY BE COMMON KNOWLEDGE TO SOME, BUT OTHERS WHO HAVE NEVER GARDENED BEFORE MAY NOT HAVE A CLUE!!!!
