Welcome To The New Normal
[Comments enabled]

Again, this is a guest posting from Ishmael....

Welcome to the new normal.  A more detestable phrase has never been uttered.  “New” has no business describing “normal”.  Normal is normal.  There’s nothing new about it.  

Tickerguy’s recent ticker was a smoking gun. Killing Grandma was deliberate, not incompetence:  The PREP Act provides immunity for hospitals but only if they use approved COVID treatments.  Until it’s repealed we’re stuck with it.  The killings will continue until morale improves. 

Another phrase in the PREP Act explains much of clown world we’ve been living in and why the coof is not going away:

(quote) ...from COVID–19, or the transmission of SARS–CoV–2 or a virus mutating therefrom. (quote)

With that provision, the PREP act ushered in a new normal.  Thanks, *******s.

How many variants and mutations of the coof do we have to look forward to?  As many as “the experts” discover.  Anything to keep malpractice immunity and money flowing into hospitals. When SCIENCE fails, bull**** flows: Tard rags prevent the spread.  The vaccines are highly effective and safe.  There are no treatments for COVID.  Ivermectin is dangerous.

The coof is with us until the money spigot is dry.  By then, we’ll have bigger problems.

So here we are, clown world.  Population: Yes.

How do we fight for normal, the 2019 version? 

Accept the fact that COVID is never going away.  Stop hounding people back to sanity.  The fear porn machine keeps them stuck.  They will either stop hiding under the bed on their own or not. Maybe this will never be their fight.

We are on our own.  

It’s worth repeating:  We are on our own.  

This is not defeatism.  Acknowledging it conserves mental energy and time for what comes next.

Take a deep breath. 

Nothing has changed, only the shock of proof is new.  Old information, new confirmation.  We were on our own nineteen months ago, a year ago, last month, and still today.

Read the first word again:  “we”. No one is alone in this, even those surrounded by clowns.

Clown world is inherently abusive.  The first step in coping or leaving an abusive relationship is realizing things will never change.  Abusers instill guilt and a sense of helplessness in their victims. “If only everyone got the clot shot!” and “Stay home for Thanksgiving so we can save Christmas,” were two prime examples of this.  See, it’s those people’s fault for the plague, don’t be like them. 

Abuse is not the victim’s fault and there is plenty adults can do about it, because they are not powerless.

Another fact:  No one can change their abuser.  No amount of placating or surrendering will sway them. Concessions accelerate abuse.  Avoiding punishment today means a double helping tomorrow.  Look at all those who got the clot shot in exchange for a free face and “normal” life.  Now they need three shots.  Or maybe a new shot every six months, the abusers haven’t decreed which yet.

There is no way to leave society, so coping is people’s option.

The gaslighting and demoralization cycle of rewards (Early Summer 2021) followed by punishments (end of July 2021) will continue.  Dreading it is normal, living your life around that dread is not.  Laugh, ignore mandates, create a bubble for your family.  Do whatever it takes to remember normal.

What should we do?  What can we do?  

The fight back to normal is not everyone’s. Some fight other battles, some want to lose what’s left of their sanity in relative peace.  That is okay.  No one can make another’s decision.

For those who choose to fight, take another deep breath and internalize this next sentence:

Pushback is coming, and it’s coming from me. 

How do you push back?  Everyone will answer this differently. There are so many good ideas that readers can share in the comments.  Remember, “We are on our own”.  

Pushback is the fun part.  It’s socially uncomfortable, but it’s the only way to fight and win against clown world.

A person who has already decided to quit/get fired over a jab mandate is in an excellent position to push back.  Masks?  Forget it.  Thrice daily testing?  No way.  Wear pants in the office?  Please.  What, they gonna get fired?

The hospitals will keep killing us, but with enough pushback the other bull**** vanishes.  No more mask stupidity or social distancing.

Once those in charge realize people are serious, they ask themselves fearfully what comes after pushback if we don’t cut the ****, including paying hospitals to kill patients?

The Criminal Medical-Industrial Complex, ALL levels throughout Government, and ALL levels throughout ALL forms of Media are all medically Diabolical Narcissists.

Diabolical Narcissism:
https://www.barnhardt.biz/diabolical-nar....

We essentially have a relationship here (Criminal Medical-Industrial Complex / Government / Media Citizens) in which the husband is a mentally sick Diabolical Narcissist mentally abusing his wife and children, and shaming them to the point of fear where the wife does not have the strength to leave the relationship.

The citizens are fighting an enemy who controls three flanks in this war, and they will never give back one single inch of ground as they strip away your freedom and wealth.

The enemy is inside the wire...and they are murdering your family, friends, and your FREEDOM.

There will be nobody...NOBODY come to save you, except YOU!

You are dealing with TRAITORS who have committed TREASON throughout the entirety of the Criminal Medical-Industrial Complex, ALL levels throughout Government, and ALL levels throughout ALL forms of Media. That includes every employee in those organizations from top to bottom who enable them to exist.

There comes a time where you have to decide which side of the battle you will stand on, no matter how much it hurts your living situation.

CCSD in Las Vegas just approved mandating all staff get the clotshot.
All board members and all union reps are well informed of the clotshot dangers and failures. They were provided every recent medical study with data and data from Israel, UK, etc.

The superintendent and board members don't give a **** about the students or their employees.

It is clear that we are under attack worldwide by a determined and intelligent enemy. A stealthy enemy who is a master of deception and misinformation. We may be witnessing the largest silent act of war ever put into play in the history of mankind. It appears that the enemy intends to kill a large percentage of the population, but yet, the majority of the population fails to recognize the danger. We who do recognize the danger are called fools and worse by our peers. The question of why this is happening is irrelevant for now. The big question is; who is the enemy, and how do we gain access to the enemy? There must be a weakness that can be exploited, a foothold to be gained toward the enemy. Someone in our circles must know or suspect where the origin of the enemy is and understand how to strike back. If not, our civilization will be lost with a whimper instead of a warrior's cry.

Hospital Admin: We want to make our hospital the safest in the world!! Get the jab!!

Me: You weren't safe before? WTH? For an entire year pre jab?

Hospital Admin: You are a selfish uncaring monster for refusing the jab and putting your patients at risk!! Get the jab!!!

Me: I did contact tracing in my clinics, hundred of patients a day, and had no covid cases or superspreader events. I don't see hospitalized patients. How will my being jabbed make your hospital safer?

Hospital Admin: We are all in this together!! Get the jab!! Reduce covid spreading!!

Me: Cases in Texas dropped 90% in Dec 2020 before the first jab went in the first arm. After jabbing, cases never returned to baseline of June 2020. And now we have Delta, soon to have Lambda, both with all the mutations that can only come from vaccine exposure. So, how are vaccines helping here?

Hospital Admin: Vaccines are safe and effective!!! They will reduce symptoms and death!!!

Me: VAERS, EudraVigilance and now the Norway data says otherwise. UK, Israel and other highly jabbed countries are seeing increasing infections and death in the jabbed. We in the US are just several months behind.

Hospital Admin: Get jabbed or we pull your privileges!!! No early treatment or prevention allowed!!! You have 1 month!!! Get the jab!!!

Me: I will not allow you dictate to me how to treat my patients or coerce me to take an experimental jab that is already 5 variants behind in mutations. I will be moving my $3,000,000 per year business, your numbers of my volume there, thank you for providing that to me BTW, to another hospital.

Hospital Admin: But we know better than you!!! Follow our guidance!! Why won't you comply?

Me: BFYTW.

Outstanding article. Thank you for posting.

I have long maintained that the hysteria around the China virus should be analyzed and addressed from a psychological standpoint, and not a medical one. Where are the real psychologists today? Have they all been bought off too?

For decades, the bad guys have used soft mind control techniques to rule over the populace. What are some forms of sort mind control? Repetition, appealing to reptilian brain (food, sex, etc.). Colors, music, etc...

In the past decade or so, they switched to hard mind control techniques. This is where the psyche is destroyed and rebuilt from scratch. What are some forms of hard mind control? Punishing for behavior "A" on one day, then rewarding it on the next. Constantly and arbitrarily changing the rules. Confusing rules. Rules that don't make any sense. Nobody knows what to expect, so they sit and shake, cowering the corner. A really good example of this is Common Core. This is where children are punished for getting the right answer by using the wrong methodology. Enough people didn't push back on this 10 years ago, so now they are rolling it out on everyone. People obviously didn't care enough about their children to stop it, so why would they care now?

A big part of our response should be to simply ignore the illegal mandates. 99% of this stuff does now pass constitutional muster as it was never enacted by a legislative body, per the Constitution which guarantees a republican form of government, as KD pointed out over a year ago. And even if it did, it violates the Constitution and our Natural Rights and is therefore null and void.

The tyranny depends on self-enforcement. Don't be your own jail master. Don't want to wear a face diaper? Don't. There is no law. Encounter a mask Nazi? Ignore them, or laugh at them. One of the reasons for the face diapers is the powers that be don't want us laughing. They hate it, especially when directed at them. This is why dictators have death penalties for making fun of "leaders".

"A person who has already decided to quit/get fired over a jab mandate is in an excellent position to push back. Masks? Forget it. Thrice daily testing? No way. Wear pants in the office? Please. What, they gonna get fired?"

As an IT professional one of my most relatable movies is Mike Judge's "Office Space". For the record I have never demolished a network printer with a baseball bat but it has crossed my mind on more than one occasion. While I continue to await the Great Judgement to determine if my exemption request will be honored I find myself channeling Peter Gibbons, down to my last F to give before the hammer falls. It's been enjoyable to walk slowly in the hall, to ignore email until I am ready to read it, to blow off those idiotic daily meetings that accomplish nothing more than to see how much behind you can kiss.

I've dedicated many years to the healthcare field in my support role. Once upon a time I admired and respected the administrators who oversaw the operations, the finances, the marketing, the engineering. Now that the veil has been lifted I feel as though I am laboring in Satan's workshop, enabling the fraud and tyranny that leads to the $3000 per dose Remdesivir and the subsequent ventilation when a patient's oxygen saturation tanks. When I began working here years ago the emphasis was on patient care, now it is on surgical extraction of craptons of money from said patient and his/her insurance provider. I'm not sure when this switch was flipped but it certainly was in Obummer's first term.

There is no turning back. I distinctly recall in late March of 2020 a radio commercial that explicity stated that we would never go back to "normal". This only three weeks after our first case showed up in our ER (March 1st, I'll never forget). Now how do you suppose they were able to make this claim in March of 2020?!?

The masses need to stop looking to the government and the medical/industrial complex to save them. Nobody is going to throw you a rope. No life preserver is going to magically fall from the sky. The author is correct. WE ARE ON OUR OWN...so let's figure this **** out before we go under for the last time.

"Laugh, ignore mandates, create a bubble for your family. Do whatever it takes to remember normal."

My daughter's dance school came out with another mask mandate a few weeks ago. As a result of having to both work and perform while masked last year, my beautiful girl got terrible acne, some dental problems, and searing headaches. So when the school mandated, my wife and I composed a very nice, firm email to the owner: "Our daughter is not doing this. We understand why you created the mandate and respect your decision, but she is NOT dancing with a mask. Period." No threats, just a firm statement of fact.

The owner let us know that it was fine, she didn't have to mask up. So at the first rehearsal, all the girls took their position, our daughter mask-free. The girls nearest to her asked why she wasn't wearing, and she explained the medical reasons why not. One of the other girls said "I get terrible headaches too!" and took her mask off as well. Soon masks were around chins and no one in the world cared.

Stand up to this ****, people. We will win some, we will lose some, but the more we win, the more momentum we gain. If we don't fight, we lose them all.

Stand up.

Imagine a 'health industry' that has murdered over 80 million babies, since Roe-Wade.

Why are we surprised that it can easily, without a pang of conscience, murder around 0.6 million souls under the pretext of covid-19?

Well said. Ive always felt laughter to be an amazingly powerful countermeasure for all things idiotic. 20 years ago, dark humor was considered a viable coping mechanism in medicine. Now you have to be serious and PC about everything. We need more laughter. We need more humor. It seems one way to fight back against these maniacal scumbags.

Little off topic but I have finally had it with Drudge.

I get my meat here at the Ticker forum, have for years.

I get my scan the headlines appetizers from Zerohedge and Drudge. Well wading through the 60% bs that now seems to be on Drudge is getting to be way more work than its worth and totally tiring. What are you all's favorite sites for continued headline news?

Like I said for years if I really want to THINK about something I look for TG's articles on it and the community here to respond but sometimes a guy just wants to skim the headlines rapid fire. In my option Drudge has been bought out... not the same site it was 5 years ago.

Part of the battle is the battle for our minds and even though I recognize the BS, gotta admit I am getting tired of wading through it. Fatigue is real, and I need my energy to stand up for myself and the rest of you free thinkers!

There is an excellent (IMO) presentation by Shawn Stevenson entitled Anxiety, Fear, & The Risk Of Death From Covid-19: Is Fear KILLING US?. It's long, but I think worth the watch. He figures Covid-anxiety, aggravated by the incessant barrage of fear-porn in the mass media is the #2 risk factor for severe Covid, behind obesity at #1. Is he right? Maybe...I don't know that a positive attitude will necessarily protect you from getting sick, but fear and a negative attitude will certainly make it worse.

My wife and I live a life of splendid isolation and my work environments consists of people who had kids more than 10 years before or none in the past 10 years. So I have very little anecdotal evidence to go on. However, I went in for a haircut a few months ago and the young lady who cut my hair said she knows of two women who got the vax and miscarried as a result. She also said these were the only women she knew who have been pregnant during this period.

@Rowdypeasant I used to follow quite a few sites, but now it's pretty much down to Market Ticker and ZeroHedge. I also subscribe to the Dark Secret Place podcast on ConnectPal. It was a military / global conflict show on KFI until he parted ways with the awokening of the station. Old podcasts are still on iheart if you want a sample (there's a bit more freedom of expression in the new podcasts).
Funny how the internet has become like television... countless channels and it seems as if there's nothing on.
