Sleepwalking Down The Nightmare Road To Serfdom
There's little a writer likes less than to sound strident.
But sometimes what needs to be said can take on no other tone, and it
falls to the reader to suppress the recoil reflex and to recognize the
urgency of the message.
LET'S WARM UP with a couple of observations on the general
issue of deception as a tool in service to agenda unlikely to find favor
(read: certain to be rejected, maybe even violently) if unvarnished with
"[I]t’s always a simple matter to drag the people along
whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a
communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be
brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do
is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for
lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same
in any country."
"[I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of
credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily
corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than
consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of
their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small
lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but
would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never
come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not
believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so
infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be
brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will
continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the
grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has
been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this
world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
"All governments are run by liars and nothing they say
should be believed."

OKAY, NOW LET ME GET TO THE SHOUTING: Over the last two
publications of this newsletter (the
November 30 edition and
the December 7
mid-edition update) I have provided everyone with the research
products of two extremely credentialed experts with backgrounds deep
in the mainstream (one from Johns Hopkins and one from Pfizer). One of
these folks-- Genevieve Briand-- is in the US and one-- Michael Yeadon--
is in the UK.
Briand and Yeadon made the cut as newsworthy because over
the last two months each was struck by the dawning realization that
despite all the eyewash raining down from "official" sources and being
sprayed into everyone's face by a fever-swamp 24/7 media campaign more
monolithic than any seen since the consent engineering for the invasion
of Iraq, there have actually been no excess deaths in either the US or
the UK during the time each was supposedly being ravaged by plague. NO
Both Briand and Yeadon realized that, as Yeadon put it: "If
there are no excess deaths, there is no pandemic." Full stop.
Both Briand and Yeadon echo what I have
been pointing out here
for many months: The alleged C19 deaths have been normal, predictable
deaths from the normal variety of causes, which have just been
mischaracterized as "C19 deaths".
So I ask you: WHY ARE THESE REVELATIONS NOT THE
ONLY FOCUS OF ALL COMMENTARY AND
DISCUSSION OF THE C19 SUBJECT?!
Why, for instance, are people still talking of vaccines and
whether or not they are safe when the rationale for vaccines has been
destroyed? Talking about the safety of vaccines in light of Briand and
Yeadon's revelations is letting the tail wag the dog-- and hence, losing
THINK ABOUT IT. AS LONG AS PEOPLE BELIEVE C19 is an
unprecedented plague, irresistible pressure will push vaccinations, safe
or not, just as irresistible pressure has pushed businesses to demand
masks and "social distancing" and allowed government officials to ignore
the law and claim the authority to mandate such things, and worse.
There have already been tens of thousands of people who
have taken vaccines for which even as little as one-year adverse effects
cannot be known. Hysterical fear, professionally ignited and
relentlessly fanned, has consumed many, many minds far past the point of
Hence, as long as people believe C19 is an unprecedented
plague, every worker will be required to be vaccinated-- safely or not.
So, too, will every traveler and every customer of other services. Such
demands have been successfully made the interest of every commercial
enterprise-- by presenting C19 as an unprecedented plague.
Everyone seeking to enter a government building will have
to be scanned for a vaccine ID, too. In short order, such a scan will
perhaps be necessary simply to be allowed out in public anywhere. And so
on, all despite the fact that those who are not vaccinated are no threat
to anyone who is-- something about which little or no punditry can be
seen (outside these pages).
If problems DO surface with the vaccines before all the
above is already a fait accompli, we'll just have more
shutdowns and all the rest of the social pathologies of the last ten
months until sufficient reassurance is offered to quiet any mainstream
concerns... BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL STILL BELIEVE THAT C19 IS AN
You can complain all you want that people SHOULDN'T
sacrifice liberties and the rule of law for what they imagine is a
little safety, but they do. Hence, the
solution to the C19 problem, being as high-momentum a hoax as it has
become, is to produce a hurricane of voices showing that C19 is NOT an
SO, HERE'S TODAY'S SIMPLE MESSAGE: Stop all tweeting
and posting and pontificating in regard to the C19 subject except to
announce that the science shows no excess deaths have actually occurred.
Change the messaging to nothing but the fact that all the scary numbers
said to have been of C19 fatalities-- supposedly in addition to the rate
of normal fatalities for this year-- are just normal expected annual
fatalities which have been systematically mislabeled.
That is, change the message to the fact that fatalities
ascribed to C19 have been counted in isolation, with the total number
characterized as an addition to normal expected death rates, when in
fact, each entry in the "C19-related" category is offset by a
corresponding reduction in normal and expected fatalities that would
otherwise be listed as from other causes (such as influenza, pneumonia,
COPD, heart disease, hypertension, etc.), per shameless government
instructions to do so--
read through this material and its exhibits to see those directives.
In short, become part of a monolithic roar awakening people
to the fact that C19 is NOT an unprecedented plague.
Again, focusing on any aspect of the C19 subject OTHER than
that it is NOT a terrible scourge is to concede the one thing fueling
all the other pathologies against which you would rail, and which, if
conceded, makes all the rest of your arguments futile.
What we are faced with is a civilizational coup attempt-- a
serious-as-a-heart-attack assault on what remains of classical
liberalism in the Western World. We are being berated and blustered and
bullshitted into enserfment, paralyzed into inaction or spooked into
running in 50 different directions while we are shorn of our unalienable
rights under a mantra of "public necessity" and illusions of
technocratic benevolence and competence.
It's time and past time to wake up, get on the same page,
and drain the fuel out of the panic-mongering false narrative that is
making this nightmare possible.
BTW, RESEARCH SUPPLEMENTING Genevieve Briand and Michael
Yeadon's will be most helpful, and isn't necessarily hard to do. Here,
for instance, is the recent post of Germany's officials concerning the
2020 death rate compared to recent past years:
Note that the humps in 2020 in this graph in the
comparative charting (the first and biggest of which is implied to be
C19 deaths by the "of which COVID-19" isolated portion on the bottom)
actually follow humps of the same or even greater fatality rates in
prior years. Also, note that some spikes observed in
representations of 2020 deaths, such as the spike around week 33 to week
35 (August) in the model above, aren't C19 attributed even by the
relevant panic-mongering governments (although they might in part be
from "lockdown"-related pathologies...).
HERE IS THE CDC's modeling of US deaths by cause during
this past year:
Focus on the middle-of-the-pack ranking of respiratory
disease fatalities this year-- where C19 fatalities are accounted, and
the kind which is most typically ascribed to C19, whether accurately or
not. (But in regard to US data, it is better overall that you see-- and
point your readers toward-- Genevieve Briand's much more comprehensive
and competent presentation found
Both of these graphics were acquired from the relevant
sources yesterday after simple searches. You can do this, too.
P.S. OPPOSE ALL FURTHER "C19 BAILOUTS". These simply
encourage people to quietly watch their businesses and jobs evaporate
"lockdown" orders by paying them to do so through the
inflation-generated diminishment of your assets (and everyone else's).
Better that these folks be feeling the pain and up in arms in defense
of their rights and their property.

populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

(Deceitful efforts to discourage Americans from
learning the truth about the "income tax")
FOR ALL THE YEARS SINCE 2003 when
CtC was first published, the government has engaged in a
concerted effort to frighten people away from its truths. This
effort involves official government websites and press releases
touting an occasional court ruling that appears to be at odds
CtC-revelation (but without details sufficient to expose the
real substance of the ruling)--
and sometimes even more mendacious behavior.

Tim Kendrick has posted
on YouTube regarding donations. I didn't know what to do about

But of course, no one IS obligated. I will continue

Thus, even though I post it here below, Tim's very
thoughtful personal resolution and encouragement to others is
just an invitation for consideration by those who may not be
conscious of the fact that I can't do what I do without support.

SKEPTICISM (SOMETIMES INVOKED BY FEAR) IS TO BE
EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to
believe about something as entrenched and significant as the
income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

"In a time of
universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary
The widely-praised German model of the Angela Merkel
regime to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic is now engulfed in a series of
potentially devastating scandals going to the very heart of the testing and
medical advice being used to declare draconian economic shutdowns and next, de
facto mandatory vaccinations. The scandals involve a professor at the heart of
Merkel’s corona advisory group. The implications go far beyond German borders to
the very WHO itself and their global recommendations.
The entire case for WHO-mandated emergency
lockdown of businesses, schools, churches and other social arenas
worldwide is based on a test introduced, amazingly early on, in the
Wuhan, China coronavirus saga. On January 23, 2020, in the scientific
journal Eurosurveillance, of the EU Center for Disease Prevention and
Control, Dr. Christian Drosten, along with several colleagues from the
Berlin Virology Institute at Charite Hospital, along with the head of a
small Berlin biotech company, TIB Molbiol Syntheselabor GmbH, published
a study claiming to have developed the first effective test for
detecting whether someone is infected with the novel coronavirus
identified first only days before in Wuhan. The Drosten article was
titled, “Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) by real-time
RT-PCR” (Eurosurveillance 25(8) 2020).
The news was greeted with immediate endorsement
by the corrupt Director General of WHO, Tedros Adhanom, the first
non-medical doctor to head WHO. Since then the Drosten-backed test for
the virus, called a real-time or RT-PCR test, has spread via WHO
worldwide, as the most used test protocol to determine if a person might
have COVID-19, the illness.
On November 27 a highly-respected group of 23
international virologists, microbiologists and related scientists
published a call for Eurosurveillance to retract the January 23, 2020
Drosten article. Their careful analysis of the original piece is
damning. Theirs is
a genuine “peer review.” They accuse Drosten and cohorts of “fatal”
scientific incompetence and flaws in promoting their test.
To begin with, as the critical scientists
reveal, the paper that established the Drosten PCR test for the Wuhan
strain of coronavirus that has subsequently been adopted with indecent
haste by the Merkel government along with WHO for worldwide
use–resulting in severe lockdowns globally and an economic and social
catastrophe–was never peer-reviewed before its publication by
Eurosurveillance journal. The critics point out that, “the
Corman-Drosten paper was submitted to Eurosurveillance on January 21st
2020 and accepted for publication on January 22nd 2020. On January 23rd
2020 the paper was online.” Incredibly, the Drosten test protocol, which
he had already sent to WHO in Geneva on 17 January, was officially
recommended by WHO as the worldwide test to determine presence of Wuhan
coronavirus, even before the paper had been
As the critical authors point out, for a
subject so complex and important to world health and security, a serious
24-hour “peer review” from at least two experts in the field is not
possible. The critics point out that Drosten and his co-author Dr.
Chantal Reusken, did not disclose a glaring conflict of interest. Both
were also members of the editorial board of Eurosurveillance. Further,
as reported by BBC and Google Statistics, on January 21 there were a
world total of 6 deaths being attributed to the Wuhan virus. They ask,
“Why did the authors assume a challenge for public health laboratories
while there was no substantial evidence at that time to indicate that
the outbreak was more widespread than initially thought?” Another
co-author of the Drosten paper that gave a cover of apparent scientific
credibility to the Drosten PCR procedure was head of the company who
developed the test being marketed today, with the blessing of WHO, in
the hundreds of millions, Olfert Landt, of Tib-Molbiol in Berlin, but
Landt did not disclose that pertinent fact in the Drosten paper
Certainly nothing suspicious or improper here,
or? It would be relevant to know if Drosten, the Merkel chief scientific
advisor for COVID-19, Germany’s de facto “Tony Fauci,” gets a percentage
for each test sold by Tib-Molbiol in their global marketing agreement
Since late January 2020, world mainstream media
has inundated us all with frightening hourly updates on “the total
number of coronavirus infected.” Usually they simply add each daily
increase to a global total of “confirmed cases,” presently over 66
million. Alarming, but for the fact that, as Pieter Borger and his
fellow scientific collaborators point out, “confirmed cases” is a
nonsense number. Why?
The Borger report identifies what they call
“ten fatal problems” in the Drosten paper of last January. Here we take
up the most glaring that can easily be grasped by most laypeople.
Drosten & co. gave confusing unspecified primer
and probe sequences. The critics note, “This high number of variants not
only is unusual, but it also is highly confusing for laboratories. These
six unspecified positions could easily result in the design of several
different alternative primer sequences which do not relate to
SARS-CoV-2… the confusing unspecific description in the Corman-Drosten
paper is not suitable as a Standard Operational Protocol. These
unspecified positions should have been designed unequivocally.” They add
that “RT-PCR is not recommended for primary diagnostics of infection.
This is why the RT-PCR Test used in clinical routine for detection of
COVID-19 is not indicated for COVID-19 diagnosis on a regulatory
But even more damning for Drosten is the fact
that he mentioned nowhere of a test being positive or negative, or
indeed what defines a positive or negative result! The Borger report
notes, “These types of virological diagnostic tests must be based on a
SOP (Standard Operational Protocol), including a validated and fixed
number of PCR cycles (Ct value) after which a sample is deemed positive
or negative. The maximum reasonably reliable Ct value is 30 cycles.
Above a Ct of 35 cycles, rapidly increasing numbers of false positives
must be expected… scientific studies show that only non-infectious
(dead) viruses are detected with Ct values of 35.”
The WHO and Drosten recommend a Ct of 45 cycles
and, reportedly, presently the German health officials do as well.
Little wonder that as the number of tests is ramped up in the onset of
winter flu season, PCR “positives” in Germany and elsewhere explode. As
the critical authors point out, were the health authorities to specify
35 cycles maximum, the number of corona positive would be only less than
3% the present number! They note, “an analytical result with a Ct value
of 45 is scientifically and diagnostically absolutely meaningless (a
reasonable Ct-value should not exceed 30). All this should be
communicated very clearly. It is a significant mistake that the
Corman-Drosten paper does not mention the maximum Ct value at which a
sample can be unambiguously considered as a positive or a negative
test-result. This important cycle threshold limit is also not specified
in any follow-up submissions to date.” The authors add, “The fact that
these PCR products have not been validated at molecular level is another
striking error of the protocol, making any test based upon it useless as
a specific diagnostic tool to identify the SARS-CoV-2 virus.”
In simple English, the entire edifice of the
Gates foundation, the Merkel government, the WHO and WEF as well as the
case for de facto forced untested vaccines, rests on results of a PCR
test for coronavirus that is not worth a hill of beans. The test of
Drosten and WHO is more or less, scientific crap.
WILLIAM ENGDAHL'S ARTICLE is a bit rough around the edges, and
little is said here for the first
time. But the information on the timing of the Drosten paper recommending
the RT-PCR test is new (to me, anyway) and adds a good deal of circumstantial
evidence to the overall conclusion of the deliberate contrivance of the C19
hoax. Plus, of course, the news of the recent pushback against the PCR test
element of the fraud is very welcome.
Engdahl's report, and all of which it speaks, should be
taken in as yet more weight on the scales showing that every single
bit of received "wisdom" and all the policy progeny of the
"C19-is-a-dire-"game-changing"-threat" narrative MUST BE JETTISONED.
The entire perspective on C19 must be recreated anew from the
long-overlooked (or buried) but thoroughly-established fact that in the
US and the UK (and by extension, everywhere else) nearly no one has
actually been killed by this virus.
Suppress both the confirmation-bias reflex to avert one's
eyes from what contradicts what one has believed to be true, and the
equally-harmful tendency to stop reading when one sees something that
suggests one is reviewing previously-traveled territory. This piece is a
connect-the-dots presentation, and includes dots you won't know exist
until you read it all (and the linked exhibits) carefully.
Then spread it around as promiscuously as the Covid
Kool-Aid drinkers believe you are spreading the dread disease when you
walk around without a mask.
In your efforts to induce others to do the reading, focus
on the fact that there have never actually been any excess deaths above
annual norms throughout the entire time we have supposedly been being
ravaged by a new grim reaper with hundreds of thousands of deaths in its
wake. Nothing will more clearly emphasize the delusional nature of the
entire false narrative of "plague" and the need for a "new normal" than
that simple fact.
AT THE SAME TIME, I will continue to remind everyone
that a key defense for the people against despotism is the power
individual Americans have over the purse from which all bad state
behavior is financed.
