Some days I do long form essays. Some days I do short form. And some days I rest. Today I am drawn to short form. A quick roundup of some things I’ve been thinking:
I want my body back from the inflammation and pain.
I want my government back from the crazed psychopaths who want to kill everyone.
I want logic, reason, and science back from the Pharma propaganda machine.
I want medicine back from the obedient drug dealers.
I want free speech back from the Stasi who stole it.
I want my newspaper back from the mindless stenographers for the cartel.
RFK, Jr.’s takedown of Jake Tapper is extraordinary. A microcosm of this whole sordid mess. “The Day Jake Tapper Sold His Soul to Pharma.”
The critical functions of journalism in a democracy are to speak truth to power, relentlessly expose official corruption, and to forever maintain a posture of skepticism toward government and corporate power centers.
What Jake Tapper does is the opposite of journalism. Tapper, instead, aligns himself with power, and makes himself a propagandist for official narratives and a servile publicist for powerful elites and government technocrats.
Naomi Wolf just started a Substack and it’s amazing! Her first article on this platform is one of the best things that has been written about this whole debacle.
Whole belief systems were abandoned painlessly and overnight as if it these communities were in the grip of a collective hallucination, like the witch craze of the 15th to 17th centuries in Northern Europe. Intelligent, informed people suddenly saw things that were not there and were unable to see things that were incontrovertibly before their faces.
Being a reporter for a city newspaper was a working class job back in the day
Oh this is completely fascinating:
Being a reporter for a city newspaper used to be a blue collar profession — a way for ordinary guys to stick it to the pompous elites via investigative journalism. Then the Ivy League types moved in and stripped city newspapers of the working class rivalry with the big shots. When Craigslist came along in 1995, it captured the market for classified ads and siphoned off what little revenue was still coming in. Then the hedge fund guys swooped in, bought these newspapers up wholesale, and turned them into bullhorns for the ruling class, further destroying the business model. Now most city newspapers are gone and Pharma has captured what’s left of the mainstream media.
Mark Crispin Miller pointed this out in class last week and this article provides confirmation and some more details (only a bit of this ^^ is in the article, I’m filling in the rest of the history myself). From the article:
Although his nose for news was unquestioned, Bernstein could not be promoted to full reporter without a college diploma. His early career coincided with journalism’s transition away from a trade for poker-playing, working-class tough guys to a more genteel profession recruiting from the Ivy League....
“Chasing History” vividly captures the bonds between a local newspaper and the community it covers. Reporters truly knew the people and territory they wrote about.... A great-aunt from Silver Spring, Md., who spoke Yiddish with a twang, offered him an education about the area’s grandees. She called them “the Wesorts,” as in “We sorts of people are different than you sorts of people.” Papers like The Evening Star were trusted because they published accurately reported stories that actually impacted the lives of their readers.
Me again: And that’s why Substack is beating the mainstream media right now. Reporters, with no conflict of interest, are writing stories that actually impact people's lives. Substack is a return to the working class roots of investigative reporting. It’s also why The Defender and OpenVAERS get more traffic than the CDC, NY Times, WaPo, and the Atlantic when it comes to reporting on the pandemic.
Hey bougiecrats, this is not a video game. When the vaccine kills you, you don’t get to press a button and come back for another life. *Yer done*. It would be super if you took this decision seriously instead of acting like experimental gene therapies are the same thing as gobbling a handful of M&Ms.
R.I.P. Hank Aaron, Larry King, Betty White, DMX, Marvin Hagler, Richard Trumka, Midwin Charles, Joel Kallman, Mark Eaton, Carlos Tejada, a ton of soccer players, etc.
It must be so weird to live in Bougietopia right now.
The vaccine has negative efficacy.
But because the vaccine is making things worse they desperately want to be seen as doing *something*.
Yet the only thing they are ever willing to do is more vaccines.
It’s a downward spiral.
It's gotten to the point now where the only way for Brandon to survive politically is to throw Fauci under the bus.
But he cannot do that because omerta and because the cartel will take him out.
So more vaccines.
Which makes things worse and worse and worse.
Bougiecrats you can step off this carousel whenever you want by clicking your heels together three times and saying the words, “I was wrong.”
I refuse to engage in magical thinking.
Show me the data.
Bougiecrats your data is sh*te.
Everyone know this.
Can you knock it off already with the moral panic, junk science, bigotry, and biofascism?
That would be SUPER!
Do you know what would really help to put out apartment fires in the Bronx?
So maybe stop purging them to serve the cartel ya morons.
I had a crazy idea, hear me out. What if, instead of setting up global Pharma totalitarianism, we just used existing off the shelf treatments that work? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The math is not really that complicated:
15% adverse event rate after the 2nd shot.
20% adverse event rate after the 3rd shot.
600k to 700k new cases a day because the U.S. refuses to engage in effective prophylaxis.
Hospital stays are longer and more expensive because they refuse to provide early outpatient treatment.
5% to 10% of the population purged from their jobs by the cartel and Democratic Vaccine Apartheid.
These factors create shortages and bottlenecks in the economy.
Literally all of that (and inflation too) goes away if we switch from vaccines with negative efficacy to ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, niacin, zinc, fluvoxamine, and budesonide.
How many soccer players are going to die before we say enough?
What do the Taliban and Pfizer have in common? They both kill otherwise healthy young adults during the middle of soccer matches.
The difference between talking about politics and doing politics
Ezra Klein is the Dean of the Bougiecratic school of thought in America politics and embodies everything that is wrong with that approach. Smart, passionate, articulate, and completely oblivious to the larger trends impacting people’s lives (hello 1986 Act). Reading Ezra Klein feels like participating in a book club on the the deck of the Titanic as it is sinking.
The maddening thing is that he usually starts with an interesting premise before drawing the wrong conclusions. Case in point, his NY Times column today, “Steve Bannon is on to something” opens with some brilliant insights before getting mired in hyper-partisanship. I want to quote the opening section because it’s brilliant and offers some very important truths that I think we should take to heart in the medical freedom movement:
In his 2020 book “Politics Is for Power,” Eitan Hersh, a political scientist at Tufts, sketched a day in the life of many political obsessives in sharp, if cruel, terms.
“I refresh my Twitter feed to keep up on the latest political crisis, then toggle over to Facebook to read clickbait news stories, then over to YouTube to see a montage of juicy clips from the latest congressional hearing. I then complain to my family about all the things I don’t like that I have seen.”
To Hersh, that’s not politics. It’s what he calls “political hobbyism.” And it’s close to a national pastime. “A third of Americans say they spend two hours or more each day on politics,” he writes. “Of these people, four out of five say that not one minute of that time is spent on any kind of real political work. It’s all TV news and podcasts and radio shows and social media and cheering and booing and complaining to friends and family.”
Real political work, for Hersh, is the intentional, strategic accumulation of power in service of a defined end. It is action in service of change, not information in service of outrage….
Amateurs talk strategy; professionals talk logistics.
It is beyond weird to be hated a priori by friends and family for the sin of [*checks notes*] doing more research than them on the dangers of toxicants and opposing genocide in all its forms.
Vaccine Mandates are Bougie Sharia
January 11, 2022
Recommending or even mandating a vaccine with negative effectiveness during a pandemic is adding fuel to the wildfire. All people of good faith should be able to agree on this and stop the vaccine campaign. Any government that fails this basic test of common sense is illegitimate and should be removed immediately.
What news, information, and memes have captured your attention in the last few days?
The only difference between drug cartels and the federal government is that the cartels don’t force anyone to take their drugs.
Toby, do you sleep? I'm in Alaska, so this is quite timely for me...Sadly, you can add Bob Saget to the list...you're doing amazing work brother!
