Let that sink in folks.

Do you really think these "vaccines" are about a disease?

They are not.

Do you really think getting jabbed will "let you return to normal life"?  It will not.

Do you think there is no risk to going back every five or six months to do it again?  You're wrong.

What is this really about?

Money.

Why don't you take a look at this?  As I pointed out back after the 2008 crash and the so-called "Obama recovery" there never was an actual recovery at all.  Up until that point we had an upward slope with plenty of flat spaces.  Then, coming out of the 2008 collapse we had an accelerating curve which was all credit creation -- not economic expansion.  This was directly tied into Obamacare and forcing more money out of your pocket for the benefit of Hospitals and Pharma, which was the real trigger for the 2008 collapse in the first place; they ran out of the ability to extort people.

Why were hospitals given cash bonuses from Medicare and Medicaid if you had Covid?  It wasn't because whatever was wrong with you wasn't otherwise paid for.  Nope -- it was because the medical monster was threatening to topple over once again, as it did in 2008.

What did we do this time?

The same thing except that this inevitably reflects back into prices, because it must.

If there is $1,000 in existence, 1,000 bushels of corn and that's all there is the clearing price between the two will be about a buck, more or less.  Now double the number of dollars in existence but keep the same amount of corn and what do you think the price per bushel will be?

When we pulled this bull**** the last time, after WWII, we got nasty inflation in the 1970s and early 80s.  That forced the second adult in the home to go to work where they formerly stayed home and raised the kids, usually the woman.

Well, we already used that up, didn't we?

What else did we get out of that?  Destroyed families, especially black families, because she got more money if she threw the guy out and that means the kids had no father, nor anyone else around for half the day.  Gee, that gang sounds like a decent idea once they get to be about 12, right?  We caused this folks -- directly -- with money-printing.

The median household income in Chicago is about $57,000.  There are a lot of people making $200,000+ in that town; they either live in the nice high-rise condos or somewhere on the North Shore.  This means there are a lot of households making $30,000 or less and every adult that lives there is working, barely getting by.  Take the equivalent of $10,000 of their money away through an increased cost of living at the grocery store, gas station, property tax, parking fees and all other manner of bull**** and they can't pay the electric, gas bill to heat the place or the property taxes.

You can't "give" them yet more handouts because if you do that immediately reflects back into even more increased price and makes the problem worse.  What do you see right now?  Plenty of people who won't do hard work for a modest wage because they're better off sitting at home collecting unemployment and they can't stay ahead of their cost of living anyway.

What was Covid really about?

Attempting to force you into a subscription model for "health care" where you have to spend money every six months, like it or not, on a permanent basis where the companies making the "thing" have no obligation to not continually raise price, and they will.  Worse, they've intentionally designed these "vaccines" to be an inferior match against natural infection, something never before allowed to be used in humans because it is dangerous and we know it is dangerous and resulted in disaster among animal husbandry.  Look at Moderna's stock price, look up the patents and who's name is on some of them and then contemplate why it is that you let both the corporate and government people involved in this bull**** go home and sleep well every night after stealing all your money and your health.

The people attempting this, every one of them, need to go to prison now because if they don't do that here, now and today we're going to get a breakdown of the social order, every single cop's house will become uninsurable because if there's a cop car parked in front of it Burn, Loot and Murder will toss a can of gasoline through the window and there will be nothing left of American society nor your precious stock market.  You think not -- or you can blow this off and it will all be ok?  Well then come up with a scenario under which the bottom third of America can pay their bills at a 30% higher cost of living -- and it can't involve more money-printing by the government because that not only doesn't work it makes the problem worse.

You were threatened with death to get your compliance when in point of fact it was sitting around with one hand playing with yourself while the other shoveled cheap, fast carbohydrates in you piehole for 10+ years that caused you to be susceptible to death from this virus in the first place.  Absent that you would almost never have a serious course of disease; you'd cough or sneeze a bit and that's it.

And oh, by the way, if you think China isn't cooking up (if they haven't already) another version of this thing that really is wildly more-lethal and ignores the current vaccines or even attacks you much more-seriously if you got jabbed you're certifiably insane. 

They were working with exactly that sort of virus over in Wuhan and Fauci was funding it; what leads you to believe there was only one?  You are really a special brand of stupid and deserve to die if you think they only did it once; why do you think we built two atomic bombs for Japan?  That's a fact and we'd better make damn sure that said "second round" does not exist and everyone who was involved in Round 1, which includes both Fauci and his wife who, I remind you, is the chair of bioethics at the NIH and thus had both the capacity and duty to throw a flag on this bull**** goes straight to PMITA prison at best with a clear warning to Xina that if that **** gets out irrespective of how Beijing and every other Chinese city of over 1 million population gets reduced to ash in 15 minutes or less.

The science is that infection confers durable immunity.  Permanent, no, but again who cares if you sneeze?  We only care if we get seriously ill.  The literature documents that infection is similar to or better than vaccines.  In addition we know cross-reactivity does exist with some other virus, probably other coronaviruses, and we've known this since the spring of 2020.  That is, many people have existing protection which may be why even among the seriously morbid most people get a mild or no disease course.  As I pointed out months ago the grandfather of a good friend of mine was killed by Covid-19; his wife, with whom he obviously resided and who had a similar morbidity profile to him did not even sneeze but was confirmed positive.  Obviously she had some source of existing resistance or she'd have gotten hammered -- but didn't.

If you're a young person and some college is trying to coerce you into a permanent subscription model for this crap you might want to rethink whether you're learning anything more than becoming a ****ing sheep and branding yourself as permanently unemployable both medically and intellectually.  Think that's bull****?  It's not.  Wake the hell up or your best and highest calling in life will be as a gang member just a few years down the road.  Maybe you should tell said Provost to cut that crap out or you will plant that ivory tower up his or her ass! What your University Provost should have done when this bug started and we knew young people were very rarely harmed was throw keggers every Friday night with the college providing the beer; **** the 21-and-over drinking laws.  You got a college student ID, come on in.  While in the average large university this would have led to a couple of deaths statistically you were far more-likely to die from alcohol poisoning at the party than from Covid-19 and the entire campus would have had immunity by the end of the spring term in 2020.  Let the scared old fat and worthless faculty "teach from home" or wear a P100 on campus if they choose; hell, all they do these days is send their young and healthy TAs in to do the lectures yet the college expects you to pay full price to sit in a hall and listen to some Indian dude who speaks broken English -- if you're lucky you can understand him well enough to not fail the class.

Leaving aside the health response, which has been to suppress working treatments and tell people to stay home until they're choking, which is an outrageous act of malfeasance bordering on mass-manslaughter the so-called "solution" put forward is a many tens of billions of dollars per year permanent increase in health spending -- right up your ass and on a permanent basis, forevermore into the future and when, not if, the risks of that show up you're very unlikely to approve of them -- that is, if you survive long enough to still have an opinion.

Nor did the stupid stop with medicine; we have at the same time screwed every landlord in the nation by blocking evictions for not paying rent while we hand out $600/wk checks to anyone unemployed so they can get stoned instead of going to work.

In other words rather than tell people to make individual choices about risk and reward while neither shutting down or mandating anything at all we have instead put evolutionary pressure on the virus to make it more transmissible, intentionally making the problem worse.

Where do you think those variants came from?  The places testing leaky vaccines.

Coincidence?  Nope.

That's called evolution, *******s!  You know, what goes on every single damned day and has for millions of years?

And to paper over all of it we've devalued the currency by 25% which will inevitably show up in prices.

If this is not stopped it will inevitably result in the destruction of about 30% of the American public's ability to survive as there is no more buffer to absorb such a structural change as there was in the 1970s and when that third of the population cannot survive it will seek to do so by eating the other 2/3rds.

The problem is, as I've documented for more than ten years in these pages and in Leverage, centered in "health care."

The only solution is to frog-march a random Hospital administrator and a Pharma executive straight into prison on a 15 USC Chapter 1 indictment tomorrow and then do it again every single day until that industry cuts the bull**** out at all levels returning competition to the provision of health care on an unrestricted basis and by doing so dropping the cost by 80%, which would happen immediately

Doing so is the only way to avoid what is otherwise coming folks and no, we will not get to 2024 either.

The Democrats already know this which is why they're pulling all manner of insane crap right here and now including with the Supreme Court.  They know damn well the lid is likely to come off this pressure cooker before the midterm elections and it is both parties, including Trump personally, who along with each and every one of us who caused it and let it happen this time around.
