Quadruple-vaxxed Pfizer CEO gets Covid-19 – “Albert Bourla is “experiencing very mild symptoms. The CEO of Pfizer has tested positive for Covid-19, he revealed in a series of tweets on Monday. The drug giant’s chief executive added that he was taking his company’s antiviral, Paxlovid, slipping in some free advertising for the pricey new pill. “We have come so far in our efforts to battle this disease that I am confident I will have a speedy recovery,” Albert Bourla tweeted, praising his employees for their efforts. While Paxlovid was approved last month on an emergency-use basis to treat vaccinated individuals with Covid-19 symptoms, Pfizer’s own data warns its abilities in fighting the virus in vaccinated patients are negligible at best.” – RT

In pictures: South America’s ‘lithium fields’ reveal the dark side of our electric future – “Why is lithium extraction bad for the environment? Any type of resource extraction is harmful to the planet. This is because removing these raw materials can result in soil degradation, water shortages, biodiversity loss, damage to ecosystem functions and an increase in global warming. But when we think of extraction, we think of fossil fuels like coal and gas. Unfortunately, lithium also falls under the same umbrella, despite paving the way for an electric future.. Lithium can be described as the non-renewable mineral that makes renewable energy possible – often touted as the next oil. Lithium extraction inevitably harms the soil and causes air contamination.” – Maeve Campbell – OH, BUT IT’S GREEN, THEY WILL TELL YOU. AND WHO IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST INVESTORS IN LITHIUM, LITHIUM TECH AND LITHIUM MINING, WHY MR GATES AND MR BEZOS. HMM. IMAGINE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thinking Points, August 15, 2022 – “Sage Hana is doing good work Twitter, Facebook, and Google are outsourced and privatized narrative control and surveillance devices that work directly with the United States government in direct coordination with the wealthy oligarchs who rule the planet. Sage is radicalizing me more than just about anyone these days. One red pill after another.” – Toby Rogers
A COVID Silver Lining? More Parents Than Ever Questioning ‘Routine’ Childhood Vaccines – “Children and teen vaccination rates began plummeting with the onset of the pandemic, and as concerns surfaced around the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, some parents also began questioning the need for the long list of other vaccines recommended by public health officials.” – The Defender Staff
A Different Sort of Warrant – “It should be pretty obvious that the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago was an attempt to seize evidence likely to be used in former President Donald Trump’s civil lawsuit in the Southern Florida Federal District Court against Hillary Clinton and associated defendants in and out of government for the defamation and racketeering operation known as RussiaGate — AND in any future criminal proceedings that might grow out of congressional investigations-to-come against officials past and present in the DOJ and FBI. The idea is to tie up all those documents in a legal dispute about declassification so they can’t be entered in any proceeding. Momentous legal quarrels that arise out of the Mar-a-Lago raid may evolve into a constitutional crisis that the captive news media can use as a smokescreen to divert the public’s attention from any balloting shenanigans going into the November election. At least it will shove any other issues off-stage in the run-up to the midterm. Is it a miscalculation?” – James Howard Kunstler
Which golfer would’ve had the Trump nuclear launch codes? – “The note in the kitchen that unraveled the whole plot, Igor, 27, is a golfer on the Saudi tour. Had Trump not been stopped by the FBI raid, he would have passed the nuclear launch codes to Igor, who would have flown to Moscow and delivered them to Vladimir Putin. US Attorney General Merrick Garland spoke to CNN correspondent Wilford Woke III: “I can tell you, Willy, all of Washington is breathing a huge sigh of relief. The cat is out of the bag, the handwriting is on the wall, and Trump will face a firing squad by Christmas.” Senator Chuck Schumer told the New York Times, “We haven’t decided on the manner of Trump’s execution yet. Although the Attorney General favors a firing squad, some members of Congress prefer the electric chair. Most CDC employees want a guillotine. Western Governors are circulating a petition for hanging.” Major television networks are planning “pre-game shows” that will air leading up to the actual execution.” Jon Rappoport – GOOD SATIRE FROM JON. THE SAD PART IS IT’S PRETTY CLOSE TO THE TRUTH AND THE WAY THESE PEOPLE THINK!!!!!!
The FBI Is Now the Federal Bureau of Intimidation – “Nothing symbolizes the decline of the American republic better than the weaponization of justice that we saw last week when the FBI raided the home of former President Trump. And nothing better represents the divide that now exists between Democrats and Republicans than the fact that some people still have faith in the FBI. Aren’t they paying attention? Heck, that’s like a citizen of the old Soviet Union saying they had faith in the KGB – yeah, to crush dissent and lock up opponents of the regime in a Siberian gulag. The evidence is overwhelming. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now the Federal Bureau of Intimidation. Or more appropriately, the Federal Intimidation Bureau, whose acronym would spell out FIB, as in the Big Lie.” – Frank Miele
Libs Tremble Before The Rosary – “The Atlantic’s hysterical piece demonizing Catholic prayer beads is a harbinger of persecution. this is a remarkable escalation in the culture of hatred against Christians and Christianity that the Left is generating and perfecting. It is impossible to imagine that a magazine of The Atlantic’s stature would produce such a piece condemning a venerable prayer practice of any other religion. Here’s how the magazine presents the piece on its website: How Extremist Gun Culture Is Trying to Co-Opt the Rosary” – Rod Dreher
Is Anything Manchin Says About His ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ True? – “In reality, the legislation will do almost none of what Manchin claims it will — and often the exact opposite. The Penn Wharton Budget Model — which is often touted by Democrats like Schumer — estimates that the bill’s effects on inflation are “statistically indistinguishable from zero, thereby indicating low confidence that the legislation will have any impact on inflation.” Likewise, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates the bill could increase or decrease inflation by up to 0.1 percentage points in 2023, a result that is also statistically indistinguishable from zero.” – James D. Agresti
Why is Medicare paying $40 instead of $1.50 per Covid-19 dose? – “Because Chiquita Brooks-LaSure approved it. She is the head of Medicare & Medicaid Services, a one trillion dollar agency. Chiquita’s budget is bigger than the Pentagon’s. According to her federal agency’s website, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is paying $40 per Covid-19 dose. Chiquita Brooks-LaSure continues to use federal money to pay Planned Parenthood and others to perform abortions. She has never issued a directive to stop it. Chiquita was in charge of implementing Obamacare back in 2008. The first thing the Biden Administration did was to reinstate Obamacare.” – Harry the Greek – ALMOST ALL GOES TO PFIZER OR MODERNA. KA-CHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Ukrainian Boondoggle as a Black Hole – “The entire defense budget of Ukraine before the war was just under $6 billion. How can Ukraine possibly absorb (mostly) military “aid” that represents NINE TIMES their annual defense budget? It simply can’t be done… The U.S. approach seems to be to flood the zone with weaponry and assorted equipment of all sorts, irrespective of how it might be used or where it might ultimately end up. I can’t see how all this lethal “aid” will stay in the hands of troops and out of the hands of various criminal networks and black markets. And so it goes. Recent reports suggest that only 30-40% of U.S. military aid is actually reaching Ukrainian troops. The rest is being siphoned off, lost, stolen, what-have-you. The response in U.S. media is to suppress this truth, per dictates from Ukraine!” – W.J. Astore
INFLATION ALERT: Walmart Just Raised The Price Of Bread By 47%, And No More Free School Lunches For All – “So much for July’s price stability, just as school begins in The Land of the Free…” – Paul “Half Dollar” Eberhart
The US Government’s Spending Addiction Is a Big Problem for the Fed – “The US government is addicted to spending money. And the Federal Reserve is Washington DC’s pusher. When we talk about inflation, we usually focus on money creation by the Fed. After all, that is the definition of inflation. But the Fed has to keep creating money in order to monetize the massive federal deficit. And until Uncle Sam gets his spending problem under control, inflation will never truly abate.” – Michael Maharrey
Welcome to the World of Bankster Magic Where We Shall Have “Weather Followed by More of the Same Unless it Changes.” – “At the start of the year he said we were entering the “strongest economy” he had ever seen. Then he said he saw storm clouds. Then he said his storm-cloud forecast might have been underestimating the calamity coming upon us because we were likely facing an economic “hurricane.” Now we’re back to “storm clouds” and a “strong economy.” JPMorgan’s CEO, Jamie Dimon, goes wherever the wind blows that particular day. And, yet, the world listens to him as if he had an opinion that actually meant anything.” – David Haggith
Inflation + Weaponized IRS = Off-Grid Investing Boom – “The Orwellian-named Inflation Reduction Act passed both houses of Congress and is now on its way to the White House for Joe Biden’s signature. The politicians responsible for multi-trillion-dollar federal deficits and a Federal Reserve which is completely out of control plan to “reduce” inflation by spending another $700 billion they don’t have. In other words, they plan to do more of the exact thing which makes every Federal Reserve Note worth less but claim credit for battling the price inflation wreaking havoc on Americans’ budgets. The measure includes funding for a variety of climate and healthcare initiatives. Supporters of the bill still have the audacity to argue the measures will reduce expenses. Skeptics aren’t buying it,” – Clint Siegner
German Costs to Ship by Barge are up Twenty Times and May Soon Be Impossible – “Water levels on the Rhine river may soon be impassible with no good way to get coal to electrical plants. France has its own set of problems.” – Mish
SURVIVAL, PREPAREDNESS AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY NEWS
Prepare for the famine that is coming: Get Food And Water Now! – “”Hungry People Group Up What happens if you have a few neighbors that are unprepared? Those without may band together, and go after those who have. Guess what? If your neighbors don’t see you out looking for food, begging for food, and instead simply locking yourself inside your home, in their minds they’re going to suspect you’re sitting on a bunch of food. – Amy S.
How To Grow Almond, Macadamia Peanut, and Pecan Nuts In Your Home Garden – “Growing nuts can be a long-term endeavor, but it’s not always the case. For example, you can plant, nurture, and harvest a crop of peanuts in only a few months. Some, like walnuts, take longer to become productive than others, such as almonds, which can take a few years. Once they are established, many nut trees can continue to produce enormous amounts of nuts for decades, and occasionally even for over a century. Many nuts can be cultivated in both extremely cold and extremely hot regions, but make sure to choose the suitable plant for your region.” – Bob Rodgers
Get Spare Batteries For Your Devices Before The Grid Goes Down – “If you’re into preparedness, one of the worst case scenarios that you might prepare for – is the electrical power grid going down. Especially, for the grid being down more than just a short period of time. I’m talking about a hypothetical long term grid down. That scenario would be a doomsday event for most people, if it were widespread and long lasting. Staggering estimates indicate that up to 90% of people wouldn’t make it.” – Ken Jorgustin
