Throughout history, there have been crises that could be resolved only by suspending the normal rule of law and constitutional principles. A “state of exception” is declared until the emergency passes — it could be a foreign invasion, an earthquake or a plague. During this period, the legislative function is typically relocated from a parliamentary body to the executive, suspending the basic charter of government, and in particular the separation of powers.The Italian political theorist Giorgio Agamben points out that, in fact, the “state of exception” has almost become the rule rather than the exception in the Western liberal democracies over the last century. ...Victim dramas serve as a permanent moral emergency, justifying an ever-deeper penetration of society by bureaucratic authority in both the public and private sectors. ...In 2020, a fearful public acquiesced to an extraordinary extension of expert jurisdiction over every domain of life, and a corresponding transfer of sovereignty from representative bodies to unelected agencies located in the executive branch of government. Notoriously, polling indicated that perception of the risks of Covid outstripped the reality by one to two orders of magnitude, but with a sharp demarcation: the hundredfold distortion was among self-identified liberal Democrats, that is, those whose yard signs exhorted us to “believe in science”.In a technocratic regime, whoever controls what Science Says controls the state. What Science Says is then subject to political contest, and subject to capture by whoever funds it. ...Many factual ambiguities and rival hypotheses about the pandemic, typical of the scientific process, were resolved not by rational debate but by intimidation, with heavy use of the term “disinformation” and attendant enforcement by social media companies acting as franchisees of the state. ...Leviathan is supposed to end this state of emergency; that is the whole point of it. But the emergency must be renewed, over and over again, if Leviathan is to thrive. This requires renewal of the consciousness-raising program as well, cultivating the vulnerable self. This is the self that is implicit in the cult of safetyism that children are brought up in. It is also the guy you see riding his bicycle double-masked. ...Perhaps this helps us understand how, in the summer of 2020, the health emergency of Covid and the moral emergency of white supremacism seemed to merge into a single thing. Social distancing guidelines had to be adjusted to accommodate mass protests, as these too served to advance the generic crisis.
Personally, I think the Democrats will nuke some American city in order to create the next emergency. Probably not DC though.

@rwmalonemd Fascistic Biden: He CONCEDED There's NO Medical Emergency but Refuses to Drop Emergency PowersDr. Robert Malone: "Biden acknowledged that COVID's over. He spoke about 'as we're coming out of COVID.' And yet, just as Bobby Kennedy predicted on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial last January, they continue to maintain a state of medical emergency. Biden essentially conceded there is no medical emergency last night, and yet he recently renewed the state of medical emergency through the election.
You should be paranoid in proportion to the amount of money involved.
There are a ton of stupid cunts out there. Most of them either don’t have husbands, have cucked husbands, or don’t listen to their husbands.
What's the current emergency?
Eric Holder says
What's the current emergency?Both at the federal and California levels, Fauci Flu is still an "emergency".Necessary for the EUA so that Pfizer can kill people for profit without any liability.
Emergency Powers = Unfettered LegislationAnother tool that the powers-that-be have used to fill the void left by we the people is what we now all lovingly (sarcasm font alert) know as “Emergency Powers.”As many of us know, both of the primary Covid “vaccines” - Pfizer and Moderna - CONTINUE to be dosed out through Emergency Use Authorization.
Through emergency powers, much of the world was - and continues to be - locked down or severely restricted. Even after it was clear there was no longer and emergency, politicians and bureaucrats re-upped their powers, because, why not? That power is like main veining the most intoxicating of drugs, so why not take another hit of it? It just skirts so many of the pesky problems that come with, you know, traditional Constitutional governance.Relying on these magical emergency powers, President Biden’s meat suit pressured the entire nation to adopt and enact vaccine mandates that destroyed countless lives and companies. The US Military Industrial Complex continues to enforce this mandate as of today.
I'm not saying they wouldn't, as history proves that tactic has been used before by the Intel community. But to intentionally nuke or dirty bomb a city? Not likely. Not non zero mind you... but the odds are low.
Do you know how bat shit crazy that sounds?
Lol, nice of you to say so, but the federal government disagrees:https://www.verywellhealth.com/pandemic-state-of-emergency-5221905 Taxpayer money must flow to Pfizer in great abundance! Therefore the emergency is eternal, with no liability for vaxx damage and death!

@AlexBerenson20hPeople keep asking me what I think of Uncle Joe’s comments last night.What I think: the pandemic ended 29 months ago when the hospital ships sailed empty out of New York Harbor. That ended ANY risk SARS-Cov-2 could cause a serious crisis. Everything since has been theater…
I am told the upcoming elections, if Republicans do well, will not be fair, and that decades of civil rights work and legislation are meaningless now because the Senate still has the filibuster and Joe Manchin. It seems every story is reported with a flashlight held under the announcer’s chin.I tried to figure out if I’d gone insane. The arguments are so stupid, it was like arguing a horse is not an orange. I left the room for five minutes and returned to see that the US was semi-at-war over another country’s problems. What, are there Kurds now in Ukraine we have to die for? I couldn’t find any debate, anybody asking why we were starting down the road to another war, only that I should get scared again of the Russian Bear taking over Europe.

@Arnie1974·20hAre We Headed Towards World War III? Who Lobs the First Nuke?Michael Yon: "If anybody lobs the first Nuke, I really think it's more likely to be the United States than anybody else. We've got a completely insane 'government.' There's nothing they won't do. Zero."
Historians of the future, grilling spatchcocked plovers over their campfires, will need not ponder for even a New York minute who started World War Three in the rockin’ 2020s. They will point straight to the waxy, furtive, larval figure known as “Joe Biden,” by then judged a moral weevil of such epic low degree that he became an embarrassment to all the other sewer-dwelling denizens of the dank DC underworld...
President Biden keeps the COVID ‘emergency’ going so he can act like a dictator
