You know, if I were one of those billionaires and saw how unremittingly gullible the general public is with respect to anything on CNN, I'd also feel justified in maniuplating the world for my own profit.It's truly stunning how stupid people can be in large numbers, over and over and over again, no matter how obviously CNN and the rest of the MSM is lying.It makes me question my faith in humanity.
1) They will hate a fellow citizen who is slightly different but love the elite who is completely different.
- no fires yet (Were all of the 2020 fires set by paid protester agents of Soros?)
farmer2021 says1) They will hate a fellow citizen who is slightly different but love the elite who is completely different.I agree completely.An American with a cow will hate the neighbor with two cows, but worship the cattle rancher with thousands.Not that most Americans own cows anymore, but in principle the psychology still works like that. Bill Gates personally strangled dozens or maybe hundreds of infant companies in their cradles just so that no one could challenge Microsoft. But most Americans think to seem he is worth honoring and imitating because he made a lot of money from these crimes.
It was almost comical to view the elites when Trump slightly dithered from class structure.. They just took it as a betrayal and never rested until remove him.
farmer2021 saysIt was almost comical to view the elites when Trump slightly dithered from class structure.. They just took it as a betrayal and never rested until remove him.Yes, though I think it was kind of mutual. Trump never felt accepted by the rest of the elite because his manners and his schooling are not the same as theirs. He looks and sounds much lower class than they do.So maybe the whole presidency was just a way for Trump to get back at the rest of the American elite for being snobs. That's OK with me if so.
Scientists on a committee that encouraged the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic have admitted its work was “unethical” and “totalitarian”.Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B) expressed regret about the tactics in a new book about the role of psychology in the Government’s Covid-19 response.SPI-B warned in March last year that ministers needed to increase “the perceived level of personal threat” from Covid-19 because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened”.Gavin Morgan, a psychologist on the team, said: “Clearly, using fear as a means of control is not ethical. Using fear smacks of totalitarianism. It’s not an ethical stance for any modern government. By nature I am an optimistic person, but all this has given me a more pessimistic view of people.”Mr Morgan spoke to author Laura Dodsworth, who has spent a year investigating the Government’s tactics for her book A State of Fear, published on Monday.Ministers have faced repeated accusations that they ramped up the threat from the pandemic to justify lockdowns and coerce the public into abiding by them – a claim that will be examined by the forthcoming public inquiry into the pandemic response.
As well as overt warnings about the danger of the virus, the Government has been accused of feeding the public a non-stop diet of bad news, such as deaths and hospitalisations, without ever putting the figures in context with news of how many people have recovered, or whether daily death tolls are above or below seasonal averages.Another member of SPI-B said they were "stunned by the weaponisation of behavioural psychology" during the pandemic, and that “psychologists didn’t seem to notice when it stopped being altruistic and became manipulative. They have too much power and it intoxicates them”.Steve Baker, the deputy chairman of the Covid Recovery Group of Tory MPs, said: “If it is true that the state took the decision to terrify the public to get compliance with rules, that raises extremely serious questions about the type of society we want to become.“If we’re being really honest, do I fear that Government policy today is playing into the roots of totalitarianism? Yes, of course it is.”
How can global policy and media across the world be so coordinated?Kind of makes one tempted to believe in "conspiracy theories".
This kooky Dutch chick takes WAY too long to make her case, but she may be onto something. She shows how three financial entities, Black Rock, State Street, and Vanguard own the largest stakes in EVERY FUCKING THING YOU CAN THINK OF. No joke, you can see for yourself, just go to Yahoo Finance, pick any major stock, click on “holders” and it is always some configuration of those three in the top five. Apparently Bloomberg News has referred to Black Rock as "the fourth brach of government" original link/She also includes a very effective clip showing dozens of bobble-head “news” casters saying exactly the same scripted phrase. I have seen this shown before but it always blows my mind. SOMEBODY is writing that script.
Attended a wedding in Denver last night, major hotel venue. Not a single mask was worn by any individual attending the wedding.
Patrick - the link to "original link" isn't working correctly.
It makes me question my faith in humanity.
How do you explain that? An educated person, cowered into becoming society's bitch.
Actually, in Latin, educare means to bring out
went against their own insights because on some level, they couldn't accept the notion that entire organizations which aligned themselves with the WHO (not Roger Daltrey/Pete Townsend), CDC, NIH, etc, could be incompetent, negligent, or possibly criminal in their intent
she may be onto something
RC2006 saysThat's not fair, too myopic.Plenty of non-Jews are part of the homo-globo cabal manipulating the world for their own profit, creating viruses and defrauding America out of fair elections. (Which is the worse crime? I'm not even sure.)Consider Bezos and Gates and Dorsey.
richwicks saysPatrick - the link to "original link" isn't working correctly. Thanks @richwicks I will try to fix that today.
An educated person, cowered into becoming society's bitch.And then another educated person followed suit ... and another and another.
“Can you state flatly to the American people that pressure had nothing to do with the abrupt shift in the CDC guidelines?” Wallace asked.“Yes, I can,” Walensky responded. “I can tell you it certainly would have been easier if the science had evolved a week earlier and I didn’t have to go to Congress making those statements, but I’m delivering the science as the science is delivered to the medical journals.“And, you know, it evolved over this last week, the cases came down over the last two weeks. I delivered it as soon as I can when we had that information available.”Walensky’s comments also come as the CDC faces allegations that it changed its school reopening guidelines under the influence of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT)—the second-largest teachers’ union in the United States. According to numerous emails obtained by The New York Post, AFT reviewed a draft of those guidelines, and the CDC adopted at least two of the union’s recommendations nearly verbatim in its final release.The initial draft, according to the Post, would have allowed in-person instruction regardless of transmission rates. But the guidelines were adjusted in favor of the union to include a provision that said, “In the event of high community-transmission results from a new variant of SARS-CoV-2, a new update of these guidelines may be necessary.”
In some ways but jews planted the seeds for communism and modern financial slavery. Those other billionaires are just jumping onto the lib utopian bandwagon thinking they will be on top. This hybrid form of communism coming out of China is far more dangerous than the original.
'It's the science, It's the scienceIt's the scienceIt's the scienceIt's the science' has become the quasi religious echo chamber of the decepticons and the bastardization of science has worn paper thin.Whenever I hear 'It's the science', I automatically think, what atrocious lie are they trying to promulgate, now?
suddenly the whole world is dropping mask mandates.
