Misinformation

We hear a lot about what is styled “misinformation.”

It is one of those words meant to slam shut the door on information. The talking about stuff, so as to know – to find out – exactly what we are talking about. To establish whether it is true as opposed to us being told it is true – and we’d better just stop talking about it.

Other such words are “racist,” “transphobic” and “homophobic.” These words all mean the same thing, to the extent they have any meaning.

Shut up. I don’t want to hear it.

And – worse – you are badly motivated for saying whatever you just said.

Not just shut up. Be ashamed.

For even thinking it.

And for that reason, precisely, we ought to be thinking – and saying – it.

Who gets to decide what “misinformation” is? Why not let information decide?

If – for instance – these “vaccines” are safe as advertised, then why not let the information make the case? Or rather: Why would it not make the case – assuming they are, indeed, safe?

How is it “misinformation” to reference the information collected by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)? It was never considered “misinformation” before all of a sudden.

VAERS has been around a lot longer than the “pandemic.” Prior to the “pandemic,” it was considered a reliable means of discovering crucially important information – the canary in the coal mine – about possible problems with vaccines.

What would you think about the safety record of a new car you were thinking of buying if you were told (all of a sudden) to ignore information suggestive of problems with that car? If that particular car were being pushed really hard on you by a salesman? Just ignore the record of safety problems filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s system for public reporting of problems with cars.

It’s all just . . . “misinformation”!

Would you be  . . . hesitant to buy that car? One that Consumer Reports also warned about buying?

No one (yet) suggests that Consumer Reports be de-platformed. That NHTSA’s reporting system for defects with cars be ignored by the owners of those cars.

Ah, but the information collected by VAERS is “misinformation.”

How so, though? Rather, how are we to know – if we’re not allowed to examine the available information and establish whether it is true? Doesn’t blanking out the information lead to . . . “misinformation”?

The same problem crops up, interestingly enough, as regards information that could give us the straight dope – counter any supposed “misinformation” – regarding the connection that appears to exist between other vaccines (not in air fingers quotes this time because these vaccines at least purport to immunize whereas the new “vaccines” do not do even that) and the weird, as-yet-unexplained spike in autism in children?

The makers of vaccines have the records of exactly which kids took what and when – going back decades. The health insurance cartels have records of exactly which kids got sick and when – also going back decades. It is a great deal of information. If it were openly available, would it not dispel  any “misinformation” about vaccines?

Would it not cause reasonable people to be less . . . hesitant about being injected with them? About having their kids injected with them?

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been asking these very questions for some time. He has yet to receive the information that would give him – give us – the answers.

Instead, he is accused of peddling “misinformation.”

Well, how would we know it?

When someone is hiding something, it is safe to assume they have something to hide. When they accuse you of having bad motives for asking about, they probably have something very bad to hide.

Bad people with things to hide are expert at silencing questions by impugning the motives of the questioners. In avoiding having to answer hard questions by making the asking, itself, hard. By imputing to it a kind of moral obscenity.

These people rely on our good faith to hide their bad faith.

How dare you! – as one of these people likes to say.

But this only works to the degree we are willing to tolerate accepting their premises; of draping ourselves with guilt for the things we’ve not done.

Or even thought.

You are not afraid of cross-dressers – i.e.,  “transphobic” – for questioning the doctrine that biological sex is fungible. If it is, information will show it. Let’s have a look at the chromosomes of the trans person. If it is both male and female – or female rather than male, then the information will support the contention and it would be right to expect that he be referred to as she – and so on.

If  however the information does not support it, then “he” has no place on her swimming team – or in her locker room.

the “vaccines” are safe as advertised, then the information will support the contention  – and no more of this bother about  . . . “misinformation.”

Right?

Some are of course afraid of such information. Their argument is that bad information – what they characterize as “misinformation” – is so powerful it will drown out the valid information; i.e., the truth.

This is demonstrably false – because it never happens. When people are free to discuss information, misinformation – the actual stuff, without the air-fingers-quotes – inevitably, always loses.

Because falsehoods cannot be supported, indefinitely.

The Earth is a sphere, not flat. And the sun is the center of the solar system – not the Earth. Incantations do not cause eclipses. The gods are not angry.

Two plus two equals four – not five.

And you are not a bad person for asking why – especially when someone insists it equals five.

  1. Recently went to my regular doctor for my annual physical. After checking in, filling in forms, etc., the question came up, “Are you vaccinated?” “No”, I replied. The room went silent and all 3 women behind the counter looked at me like I was Beelzebub just risen through the floor. No concept of, maybe there’s a medical exemption, other than “Big Pharma is not the boss of me”. One of the women went in to talk to the doctor. The doctor agreed to see me but said their head office did not allow any in-office tests on non-vaccinated patients, only referrals to an outside lab. So, left with a sheaf of referrals for lab tests. Who would trust the medical profession anymore? They have shown their true colors.

  2. I do not even need VAERS to substantiate the dangers of this current crop of injections….My neighbor is a Pharm.D. at a Pittsburgh hospital. She was double jabbed between January and February of 2021. Almost immediately this person experienced central nervous system collapse. Her reward for Fauci’s compliance was a month in Intensive Care, with profound weakness and lethargy. As of today, she is still on medical leave
    and struggles to walk; with medical bills and lost wages in excess of $200,000. No comorbidities.

    What Are the Truly Verifiable Facts Surrounding COVID-19?
    By David Skripac Global Research December 14, 2021

    Fiction #2: Scientists have isolated and purified the SARS-CoV-2 RNA virus.

    Fact #2: To date, not a single team of scientists has isolated and purified the SARS-CoV-2 RNA virus. Some researchers claim to have done so. But when their findings are scrutinized, they fall short. Just as Randomized Controlled Trials are required to do accurate studies of the efficacy and safety of medical devices like face masks or products such as prescription drugs, so, too, is there a major benchmark that must be satisfied if one is to prove that he has indeed correctly identified and isolated a virus. That benchmark has been, since 1890, a set of principals known as the Koch postulates, named after famed German physician and bacteriologist Robert Koch. All researchers must apply his four postulates if they are to prove or disprove a cause-and-effect relationship between a pathogen and a particular clinical disease.

    For example, in February 2020, Chinese and Dutch researchers published studies purporting to show that they had isolated the SARS-CoV-2 virus by satisfying all of the Koch postulates. Four months later, however, freelance writer Armory Devereux and molecular biologist and researcher Rosemary Frei revealed the truth about those studies in an Off-Guardian article. Their heavily investigated and well-documented piece confirms that the Chinese and Dutch researchers did not fulfill Koch’s third postulate, which involves replicating or cloning the DNA to form a new copy of the virus and then injecting that new copy into a significant number of living hosts (usually lab animals) with the intent to reproduce the same discrete diagnostic symptoms associated with the virus. In fact, Frei discovered, after reviewing numerous research papers from all over the world, that not a single group of scientists was able to replicate or clone the DNA to form a new copy of the virus. In short, they failed to meet Koch’s third postulate.

    Another team of investigative journalists, Torsten Engelbrecht and Konstantin Demeter, wrote an equally comprehensive article on the same subject for Off-Guardian. They, too, concluded that there is not a single research paper out there demonstrating that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been successfully isolated and finally purified. In addition, Engelbrecht and Demeter discovered that “there is no scientific proof that those RNA sequences are the causative agent of what is called COVID-19.”

    In other words, by not successfully fulfilling all of Koch’s postulates, scientists have thus far not proven the existence of any new coronavirus. This is why molecular biologist Dr. Andrew Kaufman has suggested in numerous interviews—on The Highwire and The Last American Vagabond and elsewhere—that the current coronavirus is not a new disease. Dr. Kaufman submits, moreover, that the particles scientists say they are looking at through their electron microscopes are perhaps not the virus at all but are, rather, exosomes being produced by the body.

      • Science follows logic and reason. Its those who are in the pay of governments or corporations that tend to stray rather far from it. But truth can be complicated. It depends on the reference frame. Basic truths should be obvious to all. As for making sense, quantum mechanics seldom makes sense, but its true none the less. 🙂 As with all such things its relative. Unfortunately common sense tends to be neither. Common or Sense.

        • “That there is no truth; that there is no absolute state of affairs – no ‘thing-in-itself.’ This alone is Nihilism, and of the most extreme kind.” […]

          ““All truth is empirical,” the scientist will say; but this is a metaphysical statement. “All truth is relative”; but this statement is absolute. This is the world science offers, and in its proper place, it is a valuable world. But when placed at the top of the pyramid, it falls short of the standard set by those who have transformed science into scientism.” …

      This is a 2500 year old model…good versus evil religious death cult, god is punishing you for your sins, from the church.

      the vatican’s doctors in the 12th century said you were evil and burned you
      the doctors in the nazi death camps, said you were evil and gassed you
      today the doctor says you are full of evil, a filthy unvaccinated who is filled with an evil germ, you will be force injected with an extermination injection, the doctors are still using the good vs evil narrative.

      it is based on a material world only viewpoint.

      our current allopathic medical system is good at stitching you back together after a car crash but is pretty useless for treating chronic diseases. cancer treatment is barbaric: cut, burn or poison.
      It is still using the church’s good vs evil model: you are possessed by an evil germ, the solution, curing with poison….drugs made from oil that give you cancer and poisonous injections, there has to be a better way.

      There is research being done to find an alternate way to look at improving health. One concept is disease can start after a trauma.

  4. Misinformation by omission of context:

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea on Tuesday marked its deadliest day of the pandemic as an unrelenting, delta-driven spread stretched thin hospitals and left people dying while waiting for beds.

    The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency said 94 virus patients died in the past 24 hours while a record 906 were in serious or critical condition. More than 1,480 patients were still waiting to be admitted to hospitals or treatment shelters.

    The 5,567 new infections were the highest yet for a Tuesday, indicating the virus has continued to gain speed after the government moderately tightened social distancing last week.

    As of Tuesday, more than 81% in a population of more than 51 million were fully vaccinated, but only 13% were administered booster shots.

    ————

    The dog that didn’t bark? The simple fact that South Korea is much worse off now, with 81% vaccinated, than last year when NOBODY was vaccinated. Chart from ourworldindata.org:

    https://ibb.co/60Nkz8j

    You don’t need no PhD in epidemiology — hell, you don’t even need to add two plus two — to understand that if you vax everybody and your covid rate EXPLODES, you have epicly fucked up. Anybody with half a brain would JUST STOP and have a rethink.

    Note how the Lügenpresse has slyly placed a marker to insinuate that the debacle is caused by not enough people getting ‘boosted.’

    Let’s all double down on abject failure, urges the seething rabble of ragged presstitutes.

      they have an excuse already, they just lie and blame all deaths now on the unvaxxed, who will be hunted down and exterminated soon, it is a cult religion and the unvaxxed are the new evil witches to be burnt, ….it is all fake science, bs, fraud anyways and the leftist/communists just lie 24/7

      • Oh I’m sure some will try. But once their enforcers start taking sustained losses (and they will) I suspect much of the zeal will subside. Other wise their enforcers will turn on them.

  5. Eric, talking of misinformation – the other day there was an article in the daily mail where the headline stated “two 15 year olds die of covid with no pre-existing health conditions”

    When you actually READ the article – which 90% wont and will just share it on social media, it states one kid tested negative numerous times before death – yet some brainless doctors still suspect it was covid, but they are still investigating. Because you know if it wasnt for covid nobody would ever die…. For the other kid, they say it was a “a brain bleed caused by a stroke caused by covid”. Which is probably more due to the jab….they go on to state that the school was just about to get jabs in the following week…. thats the state of modern medicine, and journalism….

    • Morning, Nasir!

      The same criminal dereliction of duty is pervasive here, as well. I regard these “journalists” as complicit – they are parties to murder. I do not say this lightly. But to pretend that kids who were healthy before they were Jabbed died of a “brain bleed” or other such that was almost unheard of in teenagers prior to the Jabbing of teenagers and then writing the story in such a way as to encourage – to terrorize – people to Jab their kids – is worse than screeching Fire! in a crowded theater.

      I cannot get my head around it. How anyone can be a party to this.

    • Yes, Nasir, this reminds me of all the stories of the FBI thwarting horrific terrorist attacks. Except if you read to the end you find that what they really did was to find some pathetic mentally-disturbed sucker and convince him to take possession of a fake bomb from them.

  6. Setback:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court refused Monday to halt a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for health care workers in New York that does not offer an exemption for religious reasons.

    As is typical in such appeals, the court did not explain its order, although it has similarly refused to get in the way of vaccine mandates elsewhere.

    Justices Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented. “Now, thousands of New York healthcare workers face the loss of their jobs and eligibility for unemployment benefits,” Gorsuch wrote in a 14-page opinion that Alito joined.

    New York is one of just three states, along with Maine and Rhode Island, that do not accommodate health care workers who object to the vaccine on religious grounds.

    ————

    In Spring 2020, when NYC was slammed worse than anywhere with covid, health care workers were regaled as heroes.

    That was so last year. Now they’re tossed in the garbage like used Dixie cups. Heroes to zeroes; hear the Bronx cheer from Gov Kathy ‘Ho’ Chul. She’s got hers, mate.

    No one knows better than the hacks in black that the Fourteenth Amendment requires equal treatment under the law. Yet Supreme Court ‘justices’ who are EXEMPT from vaccine requirements, with an airy wave of their shriveled old hands, advise health care workers to go pound sand … or learn to code.

    This is the sort of contemptuous, no-skin-in-the-game, la-di-da elitism that has spawned revolts in dozens of countries including this one.

    • The “Supreme” court is nothing more than a rubber stamp for whatever the PTB want, they always rule in favor of the government or corporations, but I repeat myself.
      Guess the Establishment figure it gives a patina of legitimacy to their “laws” for us serfs.

      • It appears that one of the requirements for a SCOTUS seat is illiteracy. If you can read and comprehend a significant portion of a document written in plain English, you are disqualified. This goes all the way back to the beginning, when the SCOTUS usurped the power to determine Constitutionality, while the very document itself grants them no such power. The States were assumed to have that power, because they were NOT bound by law to remain in the construct. “If you don’t play by the rules, we’re taking our marbles home.” Of course that problem was solved by killing about 650,000 Americans in 1860-1865 to dispose of that notion. More than all other wars combined.

  7. Spot on: “These people rely on our good faith to hide their bad faith.”

    I have conversations with incurious people quite frequently. When I point to real evidence of bad faith of the media, politicians and cronies, they’re always incredulous. Being generally people of good will (albeit naïve), they simply don’t have the ability to think like these sociopaths and so they can’t imagine that these people would repeatedly lie, cheat and steal with a straight face.

  8. Early on in the pandemic I watched the daily updates from Fauxchi and Brix. Neither of them can give a straight answer to any question. I really mean it. If you asked Fauxchi if he wanted a cup of coffee it would be a half hour answer and after all that you still wouldn’t know.

  9. Since I started learning about things, regardless if they are anomalous artifacts or something government is up to anything that doesn’t match people’s perceptions, things they were told by authorities, it is usually dismissed as conspiracy theory or worse.

    I can show a person an actual law on a government website and they will say it’s a conspiracy theory. It’s that bad.

    You can’t confront these people’s belief systems straight on with facts, they are immune to that. But going at them sidewards using something they have faith it will at least generate silence as their brains short out.

    That experience is why I came up with the NHTSA safety defect system to confront the VAERS dismissals. I knew they couldn’t answer it and they don’t. When they say adverse reactions are rare I tell them being hit by shrapnel from a Takata airbag is rare. I’ve done this several times to different internet audiences and not one comeback yet.

    Nobody says they’ll buy the car with the serious safety defect reports or drive around with a Takata airbag aimed at them. Of course they still continue demanding others be jabbed.

  10. ‘Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been asking these very questions [about jabbing kids] for some time.’ — eric

    And rightly so. Healthy kids have a near-zero risk of hospitalization and death from covid. For them, the jab is ALL RISK and NO BENEFIT.

    Forcing covid injections on children is a prima facie violation of the Nuremberg Code. Those responsible should — and I believe will — face prosecution.

    Last Monday, Robert F Kennedy attended a hearing of the Louisiana House Health and Welfare Committee in Baton Rouge. This hearing was convened in response to Gov John Bel Edwards’ insane, vicious proposal to jab kids as a condition for attending school.

    The Advocate, a Baton Rouge newspaper, has a photo of Kennedy displaying a pie chart titled “19,000 deaths reported from covid vaccines, more than from all other vaccines combined in 30 years.” Link:

    https://tinyurl.com/2p8ajawe

    This lethal nonsense didn’t fly in Commiefornia: the Los Angeles school district just backed down from their attempt to impose a jab mandate starting in January, because 30,000 kids didn’t comply.

    And let me tell y’all, Louisiana is a long damned way, ideologically, from the Land of Fruits and Nuts on the Flake Coast.

      the globalist/communist/satanic cult

      some people see this 7 billion cull as a satanic sacrifice similar to a crucifixion:
      (maybe the demons in the cult believe they will get karma credits from the devil for a good deed)?

      corona means crown, spikes (spike proteins) are like the thorns in the crown, (crown of thorns jesus),

      so when you get the extermination injection it is like being hoisted onto the cross, but it will probably take longer to die. you might be lucky or in a leftist district and get the placebo, but by the 3rd, 6th, 12th injection they will get you.
      the nazi needle is great you can selectively exterminate select people/groups at different steps in your agenda.

      ask the vaxxed: how is the cross today?

    • Forget the Nuremberg Code, encouraging a kid to take the vaxx, or allowing their child to be vaxxed, or even allowing ANY child to be vaxxed is child abuse. If the kid dies, it’s child sacrifice to the COVID/Pharma Gods. It’s utterly despicable, with no rhyme or reason behind it.

    the leftists/communists control the government and media now, they just lie 24/7 and just make stuff up, the stack of lies is 100 feet deep………..someone said this era would be known as the era of lying….

    leftists they are the jackboots of the new world order.

    written by Brandon Smith:
    if you are a leftist and don’t like what he says go argue with him

    They are the ONLY group of people that has consistently supported mass surveillance, mass censorship and deplatforming, mass violence, property destruction and looting as well as violations of individual rights through medical mandates and lockdowns.

    Leftists are afraid to question anything within their own circles. To dissent on the smallest detail is to be a heretic, a traitor to the cause. They use the word “diversity” all the time, like a battle cry, but when confronted with true diversity (diversity of thought), they panic and react violently.

    Leftists don’t actually care about diversity; they only care that you have blind allegiance to the collective. Stray but a little, and the mob will come for your head. They LOVE plantations, they love slavery; as long as they own the plantations and they control the slaves.

    A natural consequence of this Animal Farm mentality is that irony and hypocrisy is lost on the followers of such movements. They project all their shortcomings and crimes on others. The devils they see in conservatives are actually the devils they see in the mirror everyday. That said, the higher up you get in the leftist pyramid, the less it becomes hypocritical and the more it becomes malicious and deliberate.

    The gaslighting, the word association propaganda, the selective memory hole they use to erase historical facts that contradict their ideology, the people at the top and their lackeys KNOW exactly what they are doing. They don’t care that their claims are hypocritical or outright fraudulent. They know they are lying, they know they are gaslighting. They’re not interested in being right, they are only interested in WINNING.

    There is much more going on here than meets the eye. There is a great deal of power and money behind the rise of the hard left ideology and there are certain people that benefit from it’s expansion.

    Leftists like to view themselves as the “underdogs” or revolutionaries fighting against “the man”. However, every resource of global power brokers has been offered in support of the political left. The “Man” is the ally of the leftists; in some ways he is even the creator of the leftist movement.

    They aren’t revolutionaries at all; they are the jackboots of the new world order.

    It was globalist institutions like the Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Foundation that funded different elements of the feminist movement and “gender studies” movements from the late 1960’s onward. This included the Rockefeller Foundation’s large donations to ‘The Feminist Press’ and the Ford Foundation’s programs to indoctrinate university professors into injecting social justice talking points into their curriculum.

    That’s right folks, social justice activism was paid for and encouraged by the so-called “patriarchy”. This is reality, and it never stopped.

    Even today SJW groups are funded by globalists. For example, as the mainstream media often tries to dismiss or ignore,

    Black Lives Matter was initially funded by the Ford Foundation and George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. BLM coffers were flooded with over $100 million from uber rich white elites.

    Again, this is a FACT that even the dishonest spin doctors at Snopes are not able to deny. Instead, they attempt to use strawman arguments and sophistry to distract from the implication of extreme-left mobs receiving seed money from elitist billionaires.

    But let’s follow this path even further: Who gets the support of the mainstream media behemoths? Conservatives or leftists? The answer is obvious.

    What about Big Tech platforms? Do they enforce leftist ideological standards? Do they censor conservative viewpoints predominantly or leftist viewpoints predominantly? The reality is that conservatives are deplatformed from Twitter, YouTube and Facebook far more than leftists, this is verifiable fact.

    When alternative platforms like Parler are built, are they allowed to simply exist? Of course not! The leftists rampage in an effort to destroy them, but the leftists would have no power without the backing of corporate monopolies like Apple, Google and Amazon. Not only does Big Tech aid the leftists in their Jihad against conservatives, but the government does as well.

    They don’t just go after alternative platforms, they try to go after web service providers. And when alternative platforms move to more freedom oriented service providers like Epik, the leftists get government support in order to intimidate them also.

    Leftists revel in the argument that “freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences”; they seem to think it is rather clever. I would say, actually, yes, that’s EXACTLY what freedom of speech means. Freedom of speech means that no single group of people is allowed to use fear, intimidation and punishment to compel silence in other groups or individuals that disagree with them. With corporate monopoly and government on their side, it is clear that leftists have appointed themselves the sole arbiters of “consequence”, and this violates the constitution in every conceivable way.

    The collusion between government, corporations and extremist ideological movements is the classical definition of fascism.

    And, just as the Third Reich enjoyed immense funding, investment and industrial support from globalists and corporations in the decade leading up to WWII,

    the political left is enjoying immense support from the global corporate oligarchy today. You cannot be “anti-fascist” while you are colluding with fascists.

    quote from byrne……….(when you get your new nwo/ccp/un/.0001% government) “In 10 years, there’ll be prison camps with organs being harvested just as there are in western China,”

    The Chinese regime has been killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs for more than 20 years, according to a panel of experts who attended a virtual conference hosted by the advocacy group Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) on Nov. 19, and independent investigations.
    the track record of communist governments is a horror story:

    They have littered the 20th century with 160 million corpses, not foreign people killed in a time of war, but their own people, killed by their own governments in times of peace.
    Over 66 million slaughtered under communism in the Soviet Union,
    over 69 million murdered in Red China.
    Over two Million killed under Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

    The millions more killed under Mengistu in Ethiopia, under Samora Machel in Mozambique, and Agestino Neto in Angola and under Fidel Castro in Cuba.”

    when communists take over: The third stage instigates a crisis that leads to a civil war, revolution, or foreign invasion. This stage only took 2-6 months.

    This is the stage when the leftist idealists, or “useful idiots,” are no longer needed, because they would be disillusioned, become obstacles, push back, turn against the new government. They are going to be eliminated, exiled, or imprisoned. note: this is the interesting part, when the communists takeover, leftist idealists, or “useful idiots,” who helped the communists are exterminated. for one they know too much.

    • A workers’ party that gives employers medical power over employees. Some workers’ party. I’d rather have those who tell me I’m on my own and work against me than those who claim to be on my side and then want to achieve full power over me.

      Antifa is called such because to communists everyone else is a fascist. These are the two main competing authoritarian collectivist ideologies. They are like two sects of the same religion, they are at each others’ throats over minor differences. Sometimes one of them doesn’t even recognize that there is more than binary, which is the case with many communists. There is only them and the other.

      “freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences”
      This is a view I’ve been seeing more and more of over the years. Where people think freedom is the choice between what is demanded or being punished for anything else. It’s insane. It has to be coming from the media and the schools. It’s when I see a new driving idiocy, I later learn its being taught.

    • And, just like the Third Reich, this too shall pass into oblivion.

      Hopefully at that point there will be enough left that we can rebuild.

        (Unfortunately, that might not be a rhetorical question…and “we” won’t be “rebuilding” anything in the event such an evil force emerges. Rather, we’ll be far worse off than now, just like Germans are much worse off now than before WWII.)

        A fish is always eaten by a bigger fish. A school of minnows never coordinates to fight a barracuda.

        • But they could if they had intelligence. There is little doubt that the Empire has been the source of great evil. But much of that is due to short sighted fools, and incompetence. But there have also been periods of out right evil.

          I tend to follow Grays Law, as much as possible; “Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice”.
          As for our would be over lords, only time will tell how much of their current schemes will survive contact with reality.

          • Intelligence is relative. Maybe the minnows are smarter than the barracuda, and that makes them accept their own individual lack of formidability, so they do the smarter thing and dart away.

            Evil is NEVER the product of incompetence. Malice only masquerades as “incompetence” when discovered.

            • Thoughtlessness is generally more dangerous than out right malice. Why? because there is VASTLY more thoughtlessness.

              Evil can result from either. But one has to examine intentions.

              Our would be over lords have evil intentions, but they are still limited by reality. One can ignore reality (for a time). But one can not ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

              As for incompetence, its obvious when observed.
              Most of our “leaders” are simply good at winning popularity contests. Not governing effectively. Hence they are incompetent. The consequences of that are all around us.

              • “Thoughtlessness” is like Brownian motion: it’s random, and therefore never results in any particular directional outcome. (All the proverbial “stopped clocks” will necessarily be right the same amount of the time, resulting in global stasis.) Such random “noise” will never just “happen” upon concentration camps, genocides, and oligarchs living in castles with harems of nubile slaves.
                Evil, on the other hand, always tends in the same direction, no matter how much of it there is. That direction is: concentration camps, genocide, and oligarchs what with the sex-slaves and whatnot.
                The “amount” of Evil only determines the speed with which those outcomes actualize. No “amount” of “incompetence” will produce such things. But a little Evil will produce it over generations…and a LOT of Evil will produce it fast enough to snatch up your daughter and put her to work while you’re at work, unaware that the Dawgs of Hell have even been unleashed.

                • Evil is seldom that directed or unified. They spend almost as much time on plotting and back stabbing as they do anything else. That limits their effectiveness. That is why in the absence of government, cartels don’t last long. Thoughtlessness on the other hand is like the very air that we breathe. It provides the background behind which evil can conceal its presence. Look at the Plandemic as an example of that. A great number of fools and incompetence. masking the malice that would dominate the world (if they could). But much less effective than they might be, due to the complexity of all of the interlocking systems. Emergent behavior is not at all
                  simple to model or control. Chaos is a dangerous tool. It is easy to slip and lose control. After that… Only time will tell that tale.

        • There are abundant smaller creatures that kill larger creatures. Wolves, hyenas, piranha, bees, etc. Need a metaphor besides critters Freelance.

          • I knew someone would say “piranha”!

            John K. wins the analogy-busting prize!

            On the other hand, sea critters have a very different set of governing principles than land-mammals, so I’m not bothered by the other references. And bees don’t even have prey. In fact, bees if anything are a good better metaphor for the hive-mind of the New World Order, which will dispatch a swarm of bio-informatic guardians to neutralize any potential threat to protect the unitary queen. (That definitely does not describe the decentralized and desultory dissident remnant of humanity.)

            In any event, all metaphors have poetical boundaries and exceptions that don’t translate. But the principle still stands. (“Exceptions,” however as they say, “make the rule,” and “there’s always a bigger fish.”)

        • Morning, FP!

          The Reich was militarily defeated, yes. But then we have the case of the Soviet Union, which largely defeated the Reich, militarily. It – the Soviet Union – was defeated by ossification. It simply fell apart. This took much longer than it took for the Soviets to stomp the Reich. But in the end, Soviet power collapsed, too. No one – not I – is suggesting that it’s certain this will end tomorrow or next year.

          Only that it will, inevitably.

          • To be followed no doubt by the collapse of the Empire. At this point its a question of when, not if. If we are lucky it will be as relatively bloodless as that of the USSR. But looking at past history, and the actions of the tyrant Lincoln, one can never be certain.

          • That is certainly a fair point, eric. At a minimum, it is far beyond my factual knowledge to dispute in terms of what exactly did happen to the USSR (that is, whether it was a “collapse” or merely a “narrative shift”).

            That being said, the transformation of the Soviet Union resulted in massive harm and hardship to the masses, while a bunch of “oligarchs” (add parentheses to taste) gorged themselves on the carcass of the former system.

            It is indeed shaping up that the “collapse” of the United States will look very similar: once the Petrodollar loses “reserve status” the masses will be impoverished, while the Davos set reconfigure the global financial system in an eco-feudal image and to their advantage, what with Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDGs), Natural Asset Companies (NACs), and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). (See the recent Corbett Report article: https://www.minds.com/CorbettReport/blog/welcome-to-the-new-economy-1306770198593802244 )

            You see, the “collapse” is already planned, as is the shape of what will follow. And “freedom” ain’t in that mix.

            Speaking of which, getting back to Russia, where are the masses there today, some 30 years after the collapse of the “Evil Empire”? They’re in exactly the same boat as we are: compulsory injections, indefinite lockdowns, pseudo-medical segregation, and they’re even further along with QR codes than the US. (See the indispensable blog of Riley Waggaman a/k/a “Edward Slavsquat”): https://edwardslavsquat.substack.com/p/based-russia-beloved-statesman-dmitry

            My ultimate point is that I think the vision of human endeavors as “cyclical” or pendular is mistaken (or wishful). Instead, history appears more to be a linear process of centralization, power consolidation, and subjugation, according to very predictable laws of economics and psychology.

          • Hi Eric

            One theory was the USSR collapsed because the communist/leftists in the U.S. couldn’t afford to send more money to prop it up, communism doesn’t work, now the globalist/communists are going to put in place a communist one world government, a total nightmare.

  12. People do not want to hear inconvenient truths which challenge the validity of what they have come to embrace. They try to insulate themselves from being exposed to facts which challenge their beliefs, because deep down they know that they believe in lies and or simply believe because everyone else around them believes, but they really don’t even understand what they believe, so thus can not endure any scrutiny.

    T’was talking to a Trump supporter last week- They said: “Hey ya know, that Trump said something good. He said why isn’t Biden doing something about all of the illegals coming over the border if he’s so concerned about COVID?’.”

    I replied: “Why didn’t HE (Trump) do anything about them during the four years he was in office?”

    The reply: “Aww, don’t start with that!”. [With what? Simple facts?]

    People today like to believe that they are so sophisticated and rational and advanced far beyond the levels of previous generations, but the fact is, people still believe in champions and gods and magic [Anything, except the true God!] and desire to be protected from any reality which might oppose their faith in the unholy trinity of Hollywood, Silly-con Valley, and DC.

    Much like a church or a cult which has a list of prohibited books that their members are not allowed to read. It never seems to occur to the members that at the very least, they are being deemed incapable and incompetent by being presumed unable to read anything critical of what they believe without being able to refute it it indeed is wrong- or alternatively, that what they are being kept from may actually be irrefutable because it is the truth.

    It’s the cult mentality- only now the cult has gone mainstream- and has the advantage ‘safety in numbers’/’everyone else believes it, so it must be true, and anyone who opposes it must be nuts’. Throughout history such phenomenons have always existed on various scales in various places….but now we have reached a new low in history, as such a mentality is overspreading the world thanks to mass media, globalism, and the common thread of the scamdemic.

    This is the evil genius of the scamdemic. It emcompasses so many facets on so many different levels- from acting as justification for virtual worlwide martial law….to uniting people worldwide into a common belief in which their esteemed shamans are the only source of revelation and ‘knoiwledge’ and anyone or thing which contradicts their narrative must be wished to the cornfield.

    • But Nunzio, thinking is hard. I’ll just watch CNN.
      It is remarkable, as Bertrand Russel said, and I paraphrase, “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so sure of themselves, while the wiser among us are always in doubt”. And that’s because the wiser among us are willing to change our opinion if debate proves us wrong. We are NOT sure of ourselves, by definition.

      • Thinking and learning is difficult and time consuming. It’s easier than ever but it still comes at a cost. A cost of time but also a social cost. The cost of being isolated and the cost of not having the confidence that is prized socially. The more one learns the more one knows there is so much he doesn’t know.

          • The more one learns, the more one learns there is far more that one does not know. On that scale there’s little difference between the genius and the moron. One of the differences between a fool and a wise man is the wise man realizes that, and has no intention of imposing what they MIGHT know on others.

            • Exactly John. I’ve spent a life time in my field. But I’m all too painfully aware of how little I know. There is a VAST ocean of knowledge out there. I’ve at best managed to gain a tiny cup full. Its a shame that our so called “leaders” aren’t aware of how little they actually know. Or how little their pet “experts” actually know.

    • (Wide eyed innocent look; ON)
      “true God”? Ah, you obviously mean the divine Vorpal Rabbit Goddess. 🙂 When the dread dire Day arrives, She shall unleash Her mighty Vorpal Sword, cleaving all Evil and sending it screaming back to Hell. Thus it is written, thus it must be…

      In other news, if you don’t offend at least one Prog a day, you aren’t trying hard enough.

      • **”Ah, you obviously mean the divine Vorpal Rabbit Goddess”**

        Is that what Bugs was called when he cross-dressed? Then, yes. 😀

        • Vile Heretic! She of the Divine Sword will not be mocked! Not once has She taken a wrong turn, or been in the wrong season… 🙂
          I very much miss many of the old cartoons. With the exception of the original Animaniacs, nothing more modern is worth bothering with.

    • Arthur, that is incorrect. What we are being drowned in a sea of is misinformation. It is the demonstrably false narrative put out every minute of every hour of every day by the media. That is misinformation, by definition. If you don’t watch the media you are uninformed, but if you do your are misinformed.

      • No Ernie, you are incorrect. Every time they spout their male bovine fecal matter, it is another instance of education how intellectually bankrupt they are. Which is information.

  13. Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day.”

    He went on to say, in the same letter, “I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them; inasmuch as he who knows nothing is nearer to truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods & errors. He who reads nothing will still learn the great facts, and the details are all false.”

  14. As is usually the case, you can expect that when a narrative is being pushed with weird zeal, it is probably not based in truth or is pushed precisely because it is false. So as for “their argument” being that bad information/misinformation drowning out the truth – they are correct. But it is they who are pushing misinformation, and it is indeed drowning out the truth. I submit their argument on risk is more that the truth will drown out the invalid information. Can’t have that when a narrative and agenda are at stake.

  15. Truth can easily withstand any scrutiny, criticism, or argument. It neither needs, desires, nor requires protection by censorship. LIES DO!!! I contend that there is no such thing as misinformation. All information has value. Whether it proves or disproves a thing or does neither. If there is an organization in Maryland that intends to expel or exterminate all non-Aryans in the US, I would really like to know all I can about them before they show up in my neighborhood. I would also like an opportunity to argue against them, and perhaps persuade some of them to change their ways. it’s called discussion or debate, and its our more pleasant method of reaching consensus or at least tolerance. The other method is violence. As I’ve noted before, there is some logic to the order of the first two amendments.
    1) Let’s talk about it.
    2)You aren’t making any sense. STFU and leave me alone, right now.

    • Hi John,

      ” I contend that there is no such thing as misinformation. All information has value.”

      This is very well-said, sir. Thank you. Just so. All information is of value. Data to be evaluated. Data which turns out to be flawed or false is of value precisely because now you know it is flawed or false.

    • All information has value and misinformation to the speaker trying to confuse. Those who disbelieve are forced to expend energy checking, interpreting and attempting to correct.

      Normally misinformation is nuanced and difficult for the gullible to understand, in other words the lies are believable. But at this point so much of reality and fiction have melded and become so outrageous that even the opposition sometimes can’t tell.

      I read an interesting analysis of the various events that have shaped our world view starting with the Gulf of Tonkin and accelerating in the 90s and 00s. LBJ literally made up the Aug 4th part of the story whole cloth and the original Aug 2 attack was probably provoked by the Navy anyway. He bald-faced lied to We the People and Congress to justify expanding the war.

      But it setup a pattern that is used from Sep11, Sand Hook to COnVID to make Hollywood movies seem like reality and CNN reports seem like Hollywood. Even if you’re skeptical there’s almost certainly something in the world you defend as true that really isn’t.

      At this point I doubt even the most inside of oligarch insider probably really knows what is true or false all of the time. It’s likely that some lies have been told and retold so much that “they” (whoever “they” are) think it is the truth.

      Like medicine has for centuries convinced itself that it can never be wrong so it can’t now ever be truly scientific. Oh, yeah, we used to use leeches to let out “bad blood” and trepanation to let out “bad spirits” but our approach now is different. Well they knew to their very core they were right then. What makes you so damn sure you’re right now?

      But that’s how knowledge works. Something is true (or false) until the zeitgeist suddenly changes and it isn’t anymore. Then everyone just tells themselves “Yeah, I knew it all along. It was everyone else who was dumb.”

      • anon 1

        leftist/communists are only interested in winning…..disinformation? they don’t care, it is a useful tool,
        They know they are lying, they know they are gaslighting. They’re not interested in being right, they are only interested in WINNING…..just lie 24/7…

  16. The truth is out there.

    Unfortunately, most of 21st century society appears to have abandoned that premise.

    Thank you, Eric, for holding the line and for providing a space for those who seek the truth.

      • Eric:

        Back in mid 2020, it was pretty lonely out there. Your excellent writing and the good will and insight of epautos commenters during that lonely dark period made all the difference. Maybe I’m speaking too soon, but it does feel like the tide has turned in the Covid war.

        With that said, the fight must continue unabated!

        • Perhaps all that’s needed to turn the tide is a “few good men, or women” like those commenting here to believe it’s turning.

        • anon 1

          There is and was close to zero people you could discuss this covid hoax with, there was a total ban on all media talking about this mess, it was difficult to find knowledgeable people to listen to or get information from, now there is lots of information coming out about the injuries/deaths from the extermination injection, but most people know nothing are in a trance, running into the gas chamber.

          injuries/deaths from the extermination injection…..but they will be blamed on the purebloods = doomed…hunted down…..witch hunt….
