First Colbert has apparently gotten Covid again.  I say "again" because he had it less than a month ago, and now has it again.

If you're not SCREAMINGLY AWAKE with the obvious on the jabs in this regard you're stupid.  We knew before the mass-jabfest started from the data that it was likely taking them would inhibit "N" recognition of the virus -- the part that does not materially mutate.  I hypothesized that this would likely mean you could get serially reinfected as soon as the spike mutated.  I was ignored.  Now we have celebrities and politicians, all jabbed, getting it over and over again with this latest being less than one month apart.

If you get insulted with disease often enough eventually you're going to get hammered.

STILL SAYING "IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WORSE IF I DIDN'T" EH?

Exactly how damned stupid are you?

Oh, and that's likely permanent too.  Congratulations, walking corpse.

Do stupid things, win stupid prizes -- specifically, take a number for your turn in the crematorium, it's a bit busy these days.

Second, Biden signed the "Lend-lease" bill with Ukraine.  We are now officially a belligerent in the war between Ukraine and Russia and as a result our entire government and military along with every bit of our transportation and production facilities that make or move weapons of war are now legitimate targets.

This is exactly how we wound up in WWII.

Congratulations again; make sure you tell your sons and daughters to bone up on their shooting skills just in case we wind up in a no-bull**** war with Russia, because we just might.

Yes, hijacking the immune system towards an increasingly irrelevant target, which it continues to be stimulated to respond to by the laughing virus. (Original antigenic sin). All forseeable a priori. Obvious lies from the CDC. Unrelenting lies and fear campaign from the MSM. President potato head's scripted lies.

I'd say a mixture of Get Trumpy, big pharma corruption, yes man and woman (i.e., Walensky) career building, and societal control.

Biden and Company are itching for a hot war with Russia. There is no other explanation for the series of escalating actions. We have no foreign policy and no diplomacy. Poke the bear often enough and the bear will attack. Russia has shown remarkable restraint thus far.

On another note, there were rumors that high level American military were trapped in the steel plant Russia had encircled and was bombing the hell out of. Are these rumors true? No matter. What our government is doing is downright stupid. If true, these men deserve their fate.

Finally, I do believe I am out of "give a ****s" over this whole COVID debacle.

Many folks who have gotten vaxxed (and boosted) have been so intolerable in word and deed that I posted a "die, die, die" message on another thread. I am so very angry. That said, I am not sure I like who I am becoming as a result of the last two years of pure unadulterated bull****.

Sadly, we had an excellent opportunity to have very good relations with Russia. This being said, it makes one consider something else.

China is playing this lock down thing to the Nth degree. There are two potential reasons. One is that they truly messed up with something experimental or medical treatment representing a true problem to which they might or might not be overreacting. The other is that since they treat their own people as a commodity, there is little concern for using them for empire goals.

What if all of their actions which threaten global supply are a way of creating a salient impression on the world as to who runs the show and without which things start to break. They in essence have the ultimate "dead-man-switch" in their hands just daring us to shoot them.

Sure we can have all of the debates we want about offshoring (Just as we have wasted energy on said for decades with no result.) and the loss of our productive capacity (again for decades wasting breath), however the situation is now.

China has been in its own cold war with Russia for a long time and knows that it will eventually need what Russia has. China has a demographic problem and does not dare try to rectify it unless it has much more in terms of resources. They think long term. Russia has similar problems without having become a world supplier.

We are at cold war with Russia to please China and the other world communist dictatorship networks which include modern Ukraine, Israel and other obvious ones if you take the time to think about it.

We basically have an administration (well beyond Biden) which is being extorted to do what it is doing. Remember those cliche movies of the earlier cold war period where some Russia spy corrupted a key person in the USA to control him later. Imagine this on steroids. China has spent decades infiltrating probably using the unconscious innocent actions of its own people when they immigrate here and elsewhere and get involved in business and technology.

Lots of entities have been bought, and became promoters of the Chinese way under the guise of American business. Some here have been played by their own greed.

Russia is the distraction and the prize, and we have been played.

Stay pure, fellow people. As far as war goes, maybe its better if we get disappeared from the map. Its not like we dont do this **** ourselves. I hate saying that.

I never watch the late night state propagandist and supreme as*hole Colbert, but I did see a video of him dancing and singing about the jabs. Who's singing and dancing now? Couldn't happen to a more arrogant guy. Slowly, even the truest jab worshipers are beginning to realize that the jab is neither safe nor effective.

During college many years ago, I read all the Time magazine articles from 1939 to 1945. I recall that the experts knew that blitzkrieg wouldn't work and that France and Britain would make short work of the evil, bumbling Nazis. The Ministry of Truth is telling us today that the noble Ukrainian guardians of deeemocracy are giving the evil Russkies a beating and will be victorious if we'll give them just a little more aid.

Unlike the Nazis who couldn't strike our homeland, the Russkies can destroy us within an hour. How do our "experts" not appreciate that.

Maybe you're on the second step in the 'denial anger bargaining depression acceptance' sequence. If that is the case I hope the others roll past very quickly and you can recognize yourself again, Personally I think it's good to be reminded of the hell these people inflicted (or tried to inflict) upon others, but in the end they mostly f'ed themselves and there's nothing anyone can do about that.

@ Zurita,

You hit the nail on the head. The ego of these maniacs will be protected at ANY and ALL costs.

This is the essence of the karen and "progressives".

Damaging the karen's ego is a torture worse than death. This is why plenty of them who suffered mightily form the jab side effects routinely say "I would do it again" doing their Tik Tok videos for their legions of fake "friends". God forbid they actually do something good for society and WARN their delusional flocks.

Let the comedians and all celebs who pushed this poison suffer for their folly.

I like dark comedies!

"That said, I am not sure I like who I am becoming as a result of the last two years of pure unadulterated bull****."

Call it a hardening or tempering of ones personal metal and soul.

These ******* Karens screamed and yelled about being "all in this together" and doing it for the collective good. BS I am not responsible for others decisions or well being. If they want to wear masks, face shields, plastic bags I don't care just leave me the hell alone.

But oh no these pricks had to keep on pushing, shaming, coercing, bribing to push the stab including the prick governor who will push more of the same if reelected. I can't believe the brain dead that voted for more of him.

They can all FOADIAF as far as I am concerned. I've had few friends in this life and I have even fewer now as those that have participated in any regard to any of this are now dead to me forever.

Not to mention the absolute shattered trust in govt, agencies, Dr's and medical concerns. I took Vit I from TSC and did just fine. The continued denial and refusal to make this OTC to anybody anywhere is criminal.

I hope your new place and lifestyle has given you peace and an escape from this crumbling society. Your not alone out there it may only seem that way.
Many of us who understand and see what is really going on are right there with you in spirit.

Thanks to Karl and the TF community for giving us well thought out and reasoned debate and a family of like minded individuals to share with.

Stay strong you are not alone.

Neither that Karl as it would lead to nuclear war.

There is an unwritten agreement that the leadership is not targeted.

It is what it is. We are expendable, they are not.

A nuc war is total war on a scale which neither will let happen until something which i have mentioned in the past for which neither side is ready.

This would be the ability to decapitate military assets and ability.

Watch closely Russia's development of the semi-autonomous nuclear powered torpedo for one example of what is the long term plan.

When the jabbed die their friends will say the jab made their deaths less painful.

We are witnessing brainwashing on an unimaginable scale. So many people are so deluded they will need intensive therapy to recover from the faulty mental map that is now wired in their brain.

This substack (link below) details how Jim Jones filtered adherents to select those of weak minds, who he could then control. Is this not what is happening now? The Democratic party now owns an army of idiots who will believe anything they are told to believe.

America and Americans are facing a bleak choice: either fight OUR government and get them to quit the war mongering OR we're going to be fighting Russians.

Honestly, I have less animosity towards the cossacks than the duel citizens corrupting our political process. I'm pretty certain who deserves my hate right now and it isn't Moscow. Or even the Ukrainian jackass - he is obviously a puppet dancing to NATO'S tune. Is the Ukrainian the ******* or the media and politicians who have lionized him?

Debt and media keeps the masses moving ever faster towards the cliff.

I guess the best outlook is after the war America might get manufacturing back to our shores. We will still have raw materials to exploit. But will we have a society?

Colbert is a douche

funny story...buddy lived next door to his family's place on Sullivans Island. He asked buddy and his wife over for 4th of July dinner. Buddy said he already had plans and when the Colberts sat down on porch to eat, buddy was mowing his yard. Said Colbert's beady little eyes were staring him down as my buddy waved back at them.

Thank you. I appreciated your words of wisdom. I am way past denial and I am not sure bargaining will be an issue as what the vaxxed have done to themselves cannot be undone. However, I think the anger and depression stages will be a bitch.

Russia doesn't even need to send a nuke. They could shut down electricity for New York or LA for a few weeks and make it look like an accident, or at least make it so no one really knows who did it. If I were Russia, I would make it look like China or North Korea did it. After one week the city would be eating itself.

So I get all the anger about the jabs. Even though I got the 2 shots (14 months ago) I have believed that others do not have to make the same decision that I did, nor be forced to do so.

The more of this I see convinces I will never get another Carona related jab again.

What I don't understand is why, despite receiving the two initial Moderna shots, I or my wife (higher risk) have not been infected with the Carona virus. I travel for my company in excess of 150 days a year. I do not mask, I eat out in public, circulate among all the manufacturing employees and I have not been infected. Yet, you hear about all these multiple reinfections.

Maybe, it's all the supplements (Quercetin, Vit D3, zinc, etc) I take or clean living or I am just lucky (not normally my profile)
