THE BIG PICTURE NEWS
This Stupid Virus – “If COVID was developed as a bioweapon, what was it for?” – John Carter – ONE OF THE BETTER READS ON COVID IN A LONG TIME, AND AS YOU KNOW I HAVE POSTED MANY OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS!!!!!!!!
Doing the Zoonotic Twist: A Pre-War Tale? – “The Wars Over the SARS-CoV-2 Origins Stories. Oh dear. Oh my. The Grand Pandemaniacal Circus took another crazy turn. The script writers clearly don’t care all that much about remaining in the realm—or even the near vicinity—of basic reality. The raccoon dog origins story of SARS-CoV-2 does not come particularly close to the categorization of “reality adjacent” as it were.” – Mathew Crawford
Who Do You Believe, and Why? – “There is an awful lot of “I know I’m right” chatter going around on both sides. I am just curious, what makes you so sure you are right? And what makes them so sure they are right? Unless you are Einstein or something, I’m sure you are like the rest of us and need to get most of your information from another source. So let’s look at this idea from the perspective of Covid, pandemics, and what is going on in the world today. Why is everybody who has made a particular stance on all of this, so damn sure they are right? More importantly, why do they insist on denigrating anyone who is not on the same side they are on?” – Todd Hayen, PhD, RP – SOME VERY GOOD POINTS HERE FROM TODD!!!!
Lockdowns made people support Lockdowns – “And made them think Covid was worse than it is. So the study found that people thought because they had been locked down, the threat from Covid must be so severe that the response was justified. Not only did going into lockdown make people think that Covid was more dangerous than it was but also that lockdowns were the only thing that could stop it. People, devoid of critical thinking, believed that governments had their best interests at heart and would only lock them down if it was truly necessary.” – The Naked Emperor
America’s Average Apartment Size Plunges – “Welcome to your new jail cell…” – Tyler Durden -ALL PART OF THE AGENDA AND 15 MINUTE CITIES. SOME OF THE CITIES WITH THE SMALLEST APARTMENTS ARE ALREADY SOME BEING CONSIDERED FOR 15 MINUTE CITIES ( PORTLAND, SEATTLE, BOSTON, MINNEAPOLIS, PHILADELPHIA, WASHINGTON D.C. ETC. )!!!!

Biden accidentally thanks CHINA during speech to Canada’s Parliament as politicians break into laughter – “President makes gaffe in front of Canadian lawmakers in address to Parliament. He thanked ‘China’ instead of Canada. Biden wrapping up his first visit to Canada.” – Emily Goodin
Harris Safaris to Africa to Inspire Young Women – “That’s a helluva of a task for the woman who has not been doing much on behalf of her constituents. But Harris’ laundry list of things to do in Africa includes “the economic empowerment of women.” Wherever will she begin?” – Sarah Cowgill
$3 Billion and Counting – “It used to be – how much money can we make? It is now how much money can we lose? At least, that appears to be the reasoning behind “electrification” – the neutral-sounding term commonly used to describe the out-regulating of everything that moves that isn’t battery-powered – in favor of everything that is. Practically every car company has bought in, as it were – and it is costing them, literally, billions. Maybe, eventually, everything. Isn’t this what “electrification” amounts to? Just keep building them! Build more of them! And yet, even with an unprecedented push – via regulations and subsidies – to “electrify” cars, only about 6 percent of all cars sold are battery-powered and that is probably at or very close to market saturation in that there are only so many people who can pay what it costs to buy an EV and the rest aren’t interested in paying for one.” – Eric Peters
It’s Funny Because It’s True (VIDEO) – “Russia trolls the US.” – Paul Joseph Watson -THIS VIDEO IS A COUPLE OF YEARS OLD BUT MORE RELEVANT THAN EVER. OF COURSE IT WAS ORIGINALLY ON TIKTOK. MAYBE THAT’S WHY THEY ARE SO DESPERATE TO GET RID OF TIKTOK. THEY SHOW HOW STUPID THIS COUNTRY HAS BECOME!!!
Washington State May Ban Assault Weapons. So Gun Sales Are Running Wild. – “Gun store owners in the state are reporting “ridiculous” sales as a ban on assault rifles works its way through the legislature.” – Tess Owen
The Problem With Externalising Problems (Letters from O’Brien #35 ) – “I have to say, that of all the popular conservative mainstream figures, I find former intelligence officer Sean Hannity’s reporting seemingly out of touch with the domestic situation. It seems to me that Hannity represents the out of touch western conservative, who’s primary concern is offloading problems onto other countries while conveniently ignoring the fact that the US is in a state of civil war. In his programs, he frequently advocates for confrontation and a show of force against Russia.” – Winston Smith
The Mainstream Media Would Go Wild If France’s Million-Person Protest Happened In Russia – “One million people is a critical mass that’s more than capable of effecting meaningful political change even in the face of a hardcore crackdown like the one that Macron ordered to be carried out against his own citizens. This unexpected development naturally prompts some observations about the state of democracy in the West, especially considering how desperately the MSM is downplaying these protests and Macron’s crackdown against them.” – Andrew Korybko
G7 vs BRICS — Off to the Races – “An economist digging below the surface of an IMF report has found something that should shock the Western bloc out of any false confidence in its unsurpassed global economic clout. It is now widely accepted that the U.S. and its G7 partners miscalculated both the impact sanctions would have on the Russian economy, as well as the blowback that would hit the West.” – Scott Ritter
Syrians Have Every Right To Attack US Occupiers: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix – “Every American who is killed or injured by those opposing US military occupations was killed or injured because the US empire put them there. What happens to them is the empire’s fault, not the fault of those rightfully resisting a hostile occupation. Claims that attacks on US occupiers in Syria are “backed” by Iran should never be taken on blind faith, but to be clear it is entirely legitimate for Iran to involve itself in this conflict. Iran is an ally of Syria and is in Syria with the Syrian government’s permission; neither of these things are true of the US.” – Caitlin Johnstone
China Is Playing Her Hand, Moving to Save the World from the Satanic American Empire – “China is moving rapidly now, playing cards they’d been holding in their hand. The importance of the Iran-Saudi peace deal cannot be overstated. The China deal with Iran means that Saudi is solidly on China’s side. In the larger context, what this shows is that China is able to solve problems that were previously considered unsolvable in order to form strong alliances and is able to counter the US system of violence and threats by uniting people under a common goal of national independence underlined by a cooperative system of global trade.” – Andrew Anglin
Why Would China Be An Enemy? – “I am completely at a loss as to why the U.K. should seek to join in with the U.S. in considering China an enemy, and in looking to build up military forces in the Pacific to oppose China. In what sense are Chinese interests opposed to British interests? I am not sure when I last bought something which wasn’t manufactured in China. To my astonishment that even applies to our second-hand Volvo and it also applies to this laptop. I have stated this before but it is worth restating: I cannot readily think of any example in history, of a state which achieved the level of economic dominance China has now achieved, that did not seek to use its economic muscle to finance military acquisition of territory to increase its economic resources. In that respect China is vastly more pacific than the United States, United Kingdom, France, Spain or any other formerly prominent power.” – Craig Murray
How Safe Are Bank Deposits? – “Is A Liquidity Crisis Upon Us? First, a few definitions are in order. Under the international Basel III and Basel IV banking standards, banks are measured in terms of their capital adequacy based on the ratio of their Tier 1 and Tier 2 capital to their risk-weighted assets. Because US banks, like all modern banks, employ fractional reserve banking, most of a banks reserves are not held as deposits but are instead deployed in various investment strategies—loans, the purchase and resale of debt securities, et cetera.” – Peter Nayland Kust – MUST BE A PAID SUBSCRIBER TO READ THIS ONE, BUT THE SHORT VERSION GIVES YOU AN IDEA!!!
Deutsche Bank Collapse Risk Grows As Experts Wait for Next ‘Domino to Fall’ – Katherine Fung
Free Money Turned Brains to Mush, Now Some Banks Fail – “There’s a lot of talk that the Federal Reserve broke the banks with its rate hikes and quantitative tightening, and that the Fed killed Silicon Valley Bank, etc. etc. But the Fed didn’t break anything with its rate hikes and QT, except consensual hallucination, as I call it, in the Free Money era. What did break Silicon Valley Bank was the Fed’s refusal to regulate it properly. The Fed is the dominant banking regulator. And it just let the bank do its thing, and it loosened its regulations for mid-size banks in 2018, and when the Fed as banking regulator started getting nervous about it, it still didn’t actually push the bank to fix its problems, and it still let it do its thing.” – Wolf Richter
