Bulletin N° 1004



by James Burke

This ten-part history of science series produced in 1978/79 takes an interdisciplinary approach to the history of science and invention, and demonstrated how various discoveries, scientific achievements, and historical world events were built from one another successively in an interconnected way to bring about particular aspects of modern technology. It explores an “Alternative View of Change which rejects the conventional linear and teleological view of historical progress. Burke contends that one cannot consider the development of any particular piece of the modern world in isolation. Rather, the entire gestalt of the modern world is the result of a web of interconnected events, each one consisting of a person or group acting for reasons of their own motivations (e.g., profit, curiosity, religion) with no concept of the final, modern result to which the actions of either them or their contemporaries would lead. The interplay of the results of these isolated events is what drives history and innovation, and is also the main focus of the series." - Wikipedia



Subject: Love in the Age of Covid: Historical inquiries and the mass psychosis of dogma.



Grenoble, October 7, 2021


Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,


Years ago I read somewhere in a text by Simone de Beauvoir that many men (including Sartre) simply masturbated in women - perhaps, most men. Later, I learned from a Chicano friend a new view of love making: my girlfriend confided what her former boyfriend had told her, using a culinary metaphor, that you can’t cook a good stake with a skillet that hasn’t been preheated (i.e. foreplay is an essential part of lovemaking; you can’t fake it).


It was David Cooper who once told me, in one of our many open-air tutorials in the streets of Paris in the 70s, that to fuck is like de chier un bon coup; it’s not the same as making love.

Today, fifty years later, the authoritarian ruling class has trapped us in its virtual reality, a net the noose of which is steadily closing. Mass disruption of their plans does not appear to be on the horizon, though one never really can anticipate when and how the chemistry of popular revolution will crystallize and produce significant institutional changes. For this reason, I turn once again to present excerpts from Section Two of Barrington Moore, Jr.’s remarkable social history, Injustice: The Social Bases of Obedience and Revolt (1978). This book is well-written, but it is far more than an exercise in belles lettres. It is a highly instructive discussion of the importance of taking into account the richness of “historical context,” as opposed to simply believing in the propaganda for a professed cause. Moore's second section of this book is a description of the German working class between 1848 and 1920; it offers both a pleasurable and a useful self-conscious experience in historical understanding, where methods of research are discussed and improved, hypotheses are carefully examined against historical fact and if found wanting are discarded, and all conclusions are tentative, open for reexamination when warranted. In short it is the work of a master craftsman and the gift of a radical skeptic, who never stopped questioning . . . .


The radical psychiatrist, R. D. Laing wrote in his book The Politics of Experience (1967) that, “The condition of alienation, of being asleep, of being unconscious, of being out of one’s mind, is the condition of the normal man.”

Society highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal. Normal men have killed perhaps 100,000,000 of their fellow men in the last fifty years . . . .
We are not able even to think adequately about the behavior that is at the annihilating edge.
But what we think is less than what know;
what we know is less than what we love; what we love is so much less than what there is.
And to that precise extent we are so much less than what we are.

. . .

We all live under constant threat of our total annihilation. We seem to seek death and destruction as much as life and happiness. We are as driven to kill and be killed as we are to let live and live. Only by the most outrageous violation of ourselves have we achieved our capacity to live in relative adjustment to the civilization apparently driven to its own destruction. Perhaps to a limited extent we can undo what has been done to us and what we have done to ourselves. Perhaps men and women were born to love one another, simply and genuinely, rather than to this travesty that we call love. If we can stop destroying ourselves we may stop destroying others. We have to begin by admitting and even accepting our violence, rather than blindly destroying ourselves with it, and therewith we have to realize that we are as deeply afraid to live and to love as we are to die.(pp.3 & 76)


As a social historian, Barrington Moore Jr. approaches this same problematic on a different level, the social basis of mass movements and what has blocked them historically from developing into effective instruments for change to structures for social justice and economic equality. The second part of this book, “An Historical Perspective: German Workers 1848-1920,” constitutes some 235 pages in which he carefully uncovers “the life situations of different kinds of ordinary workers and how they responded to them.”

     Once the decision had been made to stick to the literature on one country it was easy to choose Germany for a combination of compelling reasons. Without claiming that German working-class history is prototypical, one can see that some of the most important things that have happened to workers in other countries happened also in Germany, but in a more intense form. Guilds were far more important in Germany than elsewhere in Western Europe: their decay and the creation of new industrial forms of organization presented especially severe and revealing problems. In the second place, Germany before 1914 had created a powerful industrial establishment for its time and had managed to integrate its workers into the capitalist order to an extent that astonished radical Marxists. But there were obviously forces working against capitalist integration too. In addition, Germany had undergone two revolutionary experiences, that of 1848 and that of 1918-1920. Perhaps because both were unsuccessful, the prospects of learning something new seemed to me especially enticing.(p.xv)


In a previous bulletin we already looked at the author’s description given in the first sections of Part Two on the archaic conditions of various groups of German workers in 1848, the social and cultural trends in the Ruhr industrial region of Germany in the pre-WW I era and specifically new relationships among the elite and the masses of workers, as well as wage differentials, and relationships with superiors and other workers. Along with this contextual description attention is called to historic experiences that produced different capacities within the working class for “moral outrage” and for seeming “indifference” to suffering.

Now we will turn to the final sections of Part Two in this discussion of German Workers, to look at Moore’s descriptive analysis of “militancy and apathy in the Ruhr before 1914,” the “reformist revolution in 1918-1920,” and some general aspects of radicalism among workers in the Ruhr after WWI.

By the turn of the century, relationships within the factory were replacing the artisans’ working conditions in the atelier; workers' experiences were rapidly giving way to a more alienated industrial environment.

     In most German factories at that time the work rules were in theory entirely the prerogative of the management. That was rather a sore point with the workers, who were not supposed to have any part in their formulation but were to give complete obedience to them. Actual practice, on the other hand, often softened the antagonism. What the rules said and what happened might be two quite different things. The personality of the director was often a decisive factor. In the factory where Paul Göhre worked the director was very strict – almost military, but also human and understanding, and very just. Furthermore the foreman enforced the rules in such a mild and shrewd (klug) manner that their severity was not felt as very painful. When the director introduced new work rules about methods of production, hours, or methods of payment, the majority of the workers held back timidly and uncertainly until the word was passed around and ‘public opinion’ appeared as formed. The makers of this ‘public opinion’ were a few respected Social Democrats, even though political propaganda was strictly forbidden within the factory gates. 

. . .

  Relationships with superiors and other workers.

Even if several workers did not like ‘public opinion’ and even if it went against their interests, it was a power that other workers respected and against which they rarely raised objections.

     As pointed out in the first chapter, the implicit social contract is usually subject to continual testing and renegotiation, and not all participants may regard all of its terms as equally binding. Subordinate groups are especially likely to feel resentment and moral outrage whenever those in authority attempt changes to their own advantage and at the same time appear incompetent according to the subordinates’ work rules.

     The important point in these considerations is that in the work situation resentment and moral outrage can arise quite spontaneously, that is, without the help of ‘outside agitators.’ In the workplace there are visible and concrete human beings who appear responsible for injustice because of their individual behavior. They are unjust because they violate the social contract that grows out of the nature of the work itself. The aspect distinguishes such situations for the more general distress of hunger and bad housing discussed a moment ago. The spontaneous nature of these processes in an age before collective bargaining had established itself, and the rage that can arise out of them, appear so vividly in the pathetic autobiography of Karl Fischer that it is worthwhile recounting sole episodes here.

     Karl Fischer is likely to strike a modern reader as an individual somehow unusually impervious to feelings of moral outrage. The fact that his father periodically stole money out of his savings box when he was a boy is just one of many from his life that he reports in a flat factual manner. The shy, beaten child of a tyrannical farther, he stumbled through most of his life from one crushing experience to another. But eventually he did reveal that he was capable of feeling unjustly treated when the shop foreman did not pay him according to the time he had actually put in on a job. Likewise when he felt that the shop foreman and the other workers were trying to gang up on him and get rid of him – by this time he was getting old for the job – he finally lost his temper and shouted them all down.

     At another time, on learning that the director of the establishment knew how to perform his own small task, Fischer’s respect for the director suddenly shot up. Turning to his relationship with other superiors, it is a surprise to discover that Fischer, along with the other workers, did not seriously object to having the engineer reduce their piece rates. They could all still earn enough by working hard. But when the bookkeeper set the rates, the reaction was very different, since the bookkeeper  came in only once a year at inventory time and in Fischer’s words, ‘understood as much about the job as a cow does about Sunday.’ Furthermore, people were just a ‘side issue’ (Nebensache)… to the bookkeeper, at least as Fischer perceived him.

    In all the episodes so far, Fischer displays no sign of a generalized hostility toward his superiors or ‘bosses.’ All that he reports are a series of personal instances of bad treatment. Ultimately, however, the effect turns out to have been cumulative. Toward the end of the autobiography we find him praying to God in despair. God tells him to slam the cast he was making down in front of the master and shout, ‘I want to earn a hundred marks a month. Everything is out of line here (Hier ist keine Ordnung)! – a revealing cliché that usually has conservative implications. For this performance he got fourteen-day’s notice to quite. But he felt much better. The remark Hier is keine Ordnung!’ reveals his feeling of outrage at what he felt were rules not appropriate to the proper operation of the place of work. Though his rage shortly afterward became even more towering and dramatic, that was as far as it went in substance.

. . .

     Karl Fischer’s account is especially useful because there is no trace in it of Marxist doctrine, or indeed of any other intellectual influences of a critical or subversive sort that could have colored or focused his experiences. In that sense it was purely spontaneous. In Fischer’s ox-like submission to his life situation and his moment of rage against it the biography reveals both what the Marxists had to contend with and the forces that they could harness. There must have been thousands of Karl Fischers, not only during the transition to the factory system but long afterward. Like many before him (back at least to the 1840s) and many who followed him, the essence of Fischer’s cry, even in his moments of near frenzy, was for decent human treatment (menschlich Behandlung). It will be possible to see more clearly just what this meant and its political consequences after exploring other aspects of working-class culture and the forces that shaped it.

. . .

Some sources of working-class culture.

Among the forces that had shaped this culture, standard accounts generally stress three: the change from the patriarchal rule of the workshop and small factory the more impersonal and bureaucratic world of the giant firm, the tyranny of the machine, and the dependence of the worker on the wage system. These are, so to speak, the sources of the workers’ misery seen through the detached eyes of the economic historian rather than through the workers’’ own eyes. Workers’ perceptions of these processes, to the limited extent we know about them, are similar enough to make it obvious that both workers and historians are talking about the same thing. Beyond that point, there is much more variety than might be anticipated and some reactions one would not expect.

[First] there was a transformation from a patriarchal to a more bureaucratic management, and it was perceived by at least the more intelligent workers while it was taking place. Yet many workers did not see the transformation as one that hurt them. Interviewers at both the Daimler automobile factory and a large textile works discovered that many of the employees had deliberately moved to these establishments because their previous place of employment was unpleasant and ‘too small,’ evidently in the sense of being somehow confining. When August Springer moved to the new type of factory, he found that the proprietor in his impersonal way did not care at all about the political opinions of his workers as long as they did their jobs. The consequence was that the establishment became a refuge for Social Democrats.

     As for the effect of the new machines, Levenstein’s inquiries turned up a large majority of articulate workers who did feel enslaved and exhausted by them. Yet there was also a minority who actually enjoyed the rhythmic workings of their machine. Some felt that the machine liberated them from toil in a way that allowed them all sorts of pleasant daydreams.(pp.202-206)

. . .

Moore turns from working-class autobiographies, such as Karl Fischer’s, to a published questionnaire, Die Arbeiterfrage, conducted by Adolf Levenstein and published in 1912. It provides a wealth of information about the subjective state of German workers before the war.

     Some of the most enlightening information turns up as the result of Levenstein’s admittedly crude effort to distinguish between the workers' sense of material deprivation, due to low wages, and a more general unhappiness, due to the alleged loss of freedom and autonomy under the factory system.

. . .

     The more articulate workers tried to express their complicated feelings in considerable detail. Two themes run through their responses. One is bitterness at the prospect that neither they nor their children were likely to escape their fate as workers. They were, as the expression now has it, ‘locked in.’ That however, was a secondary theme. The main theme was resentment at the lack of autonomy, the feeling that it was necessary to sell oneself body and soul (for too low a price) in order to earn a wage, and that the employer just didn’t care. (In the statistical summaries of the replies, which should be taken with salt and reserve, objections to dependence were just about as numerous as objections to the low wage.) As a Berlin plush weaver put it: ‘At seven in the morning the factory siren begins to whistle. It’s the whistle of my bread master. So I’m whistled at, the way the master whistles for his dog. Five minutes later the factory gate is shut, or the time-ticket machine locked, and there I am, inside the jail.’ Or as another worker put it: ‘If only I got more decent attention. But the Fabrikant doesn’t even say good morning,’ a complaint that, according to Levenstein, runs with all possible variations through the replies of all the workers. Once again we encounter the workers’ plea for decent human treatment, a theme that recurs in their hopes and fears about the future.


Images of the future.      

A great deal of light on what industrial workers felt as painful deprivations comes from the richest section of Levenstein’s study, on their fantasies, hopes, and fears for the future. His questions here were both broad and simple. They amount to asking what would you do if you had enough time and money, and what are your hopes and desires? In addition to showing what the workers felt they lacked, the replies also reveal the limits on what they could conceive as a happy life, limits that are the consequence of their present situation and past history. It is tempting to see in many of the replies evidence of an historically crippled imagination. Yet there are overtones of unwarranted condescension in such a judgment. It would be very difficult to prove that even professional intellectuals have as a rule been any less provincial in their images of a desirable future.

     In any case, among the prewar German workers there were three main components in their images of a happy life. The first component was simply a vision of the present stripped of its painful aspects. The second was a future couched in terms of an idealized rural past or else an idealized version of what they had seen or heard about contemporary life in the countryside. This was a counter image, a reversal of life as they knew it. Finally, there was the imprint of socialist ideas. The proportion of these components varied from individual to individual. In some replies only one of these three elements appears; in others all three may be combined – or jumbled – as in a dream.

     Here is a characteristic reply form a twenty-two-year-old miner with two children, making comparatively good wages. It is written in a colloquial German with numerous misspellings, and the flavor is hard to capture in English. It comes from the heart, without fancy decorations in imitation of educated tastes: ‘When I got back from the shift I’d eat myself full up and then go for a walk in the woods, drink a swig of beer then take a rest in bed so I could be in a good mood for the next shift. I’d build myself a nice house so that I could live in something I owned.’ The idea of different work, or not working at all, does not occur to this miner. What he wants is very simple – and very necessary and very human – enough to eat, a decent night’s sleep, the little luxury of a glass of beer, and a place to live that he can call his own. With these matters arranged, life could go on as usual and very happily. I would hazard the guess that this young man spoke for the majority of German workers in his day, and, allowing for differences in taste and idioms, even for most of mankind at all times. It is also very likely that in this simple statement we hear the authentic voice of those workers ‘dallying back and forth between work and pleasure’ who were the despair of e slightly priggish working-class elite.

     Statements very similar to those of this miner crop up intermittently in the replies. Here is one from a twenty-seven-year-old weaver, earning only two-thirds of the miner’s wages. He worked a ten-and-a-half hour day (against the miner’s nine). For him it was also impossible to write correct German: ‘Sleep a bit longer in the morning, work from 8 to 1, after dinner sleep a bit till 4 o’clock and then go for a walk till supper. I’d build myself a little house, feed pigs, geese, chickens, doves for my own use and set up a nice vegetable garden which I would want to cultivate real nice so I could always be able to eat my fill.’ Though in this instance the delights of simple rural life appear mainly gastronomic, from other replies it is plain that the appeal was also aesthetic. Other workers, as might be expected, wrote about buying clothes so as to look more like a human being or just respectable.(pp.207-210)


Moore concludes this section with a commentary on the responses to Adolf Levenstein’s questionnaire:

     Pain and suffering must have some purpose. Human beings, as all the great religions reveal in different ways, find it very difficult to tolerate the prospect that most human suffering does not lead to happiness, however defined. For these German workers the theodicy apparently ends with a nice little place in the country. That would be the end of the exploitation of man by man.

     Or was the house in the country a symbol for a reflection of something deeper? Was it a crude but concrete image of the security that belonged to a world where workers received decent human treatment – a world still marked by sharp inequalities, but where the edges of the inequalities were smoothed by the superiors’ recognition that workers were human beings? As human beings, did they not deserve the minimum of respect and consideration, required by a shared humanity, enough martial rewards for their hard labor to enable them to carry out their jobs without pain from hunger or cold? Could they not expect some indulgence for an occasional burst of fun and sheer animal spirits? Bringing together all the evidence from the questionnaires and the biographies, it seems to me that this simple conception of decent human treatment underlies them all, that it is the implicit (and often explicit) assumption that ties them together.(p.216)


Political and economic action.

If we ask what German workers did about achieving this goal, the plain answer given by statistics is that just about half of them did nothing and a large majority of the remainder did nothing more than pay dues to an organization. The main organizations were of course the SPD and the unions. Since there are several excellent analyses of the organizational aspect of working-class life, I shall limit myself to a few brief observations. That the SPD faced a dilemma in choosing between its formal long-range goal of socialism and the necessity of making day-to-day gains in order to attract and hold a following is too well known to require elaboration here. On the other hand, it is worth pointing out once more that the evidence discussed so far fails to reveal the existence of any massive proletariat of the ‘classic’ type whose interests the leaders came to ignore. In the light of evidence about the occupational and geographical composition of the industrial working class – its provincial character still flavored by the artisan’s traditions – as well as what evidence we have been able to muster about the worker’s life situations and the way they felt about them, the SPD leadership with its cautious policies and occasional outbursts of rhetorical anger at the propertied classes appears reasonably representative. For the prewar years at any rate it is difficult to imagine just what else they might have done. A policy would have lacked a popular basis and would have been easily crushed.

     The prewar SPD leaders were bureaucrats and politicians. But they were bureaucrats and politicians with an ear to the ground. The notion that they ignored or failed to provide the proper leadership for a huge revolutionary mass is merely a polemical exaggeration. There was a mass as yet beyond the reach of SPD and trade-union leadership, indeed a very considerable mass, about which both the unions and the Party leaders at times expressed uneasiness. Within it – for it was by no means a single undifferentiated whole – there were large bodies of workers whose reactions and lack of reactions from time to time forced the hand of the labor movement’s leaders. The relationship between leaders and those they were attempting to lead appears, so to speak, in miniature in the autobiographical accounts of important labor leaders. It is a cameolike miniature whose details reveal essential characteristics of the interaction between ordinary workers and their leaders, and especially the experiences that formed the views of working-class leaders about their actual and political following. Since this relationship became increasingly important during and immediately after the First World War, it will be useful to take a careful look at it now.

     By the end of the nineteenth century the flow of unskilled workers to the new machines in the great factories gave, at least in some areas, a powerful impulse to the German variant of industrial unions as opposed to older forms of organization along craft lines. The fact that large masses of workers were thrown together in the new factories did not necessarily make these workers easier to organize. Often the factories were very noisy places where the machines absorbed all the workers’ attention and permitted no opportunities for conversations. There the worker while he was on the job was far more socially isolated than under most handicraft conditions. The situation varies of course from industry to industry. At the opposite end of the scale of a noisy textile factory was the cigar factory with its hundreds of workers quietly busy while a Vorleser or reader read aloud to the group. Since the Vorleser often red materials with an educational and propagandist slant, cigar workers took an early lead in the labor movement.

     Whatever the variety of situations, the workers’ only resource in any form of struggle with the employers remained the fact that if they acted as a unit they could refuse to sell their labor power. (By this time unions and strikes, while of doubtful legality, were accepted facts of life.) To be effective, enough workers had to join the strike to force the plant to suspend operations. What was even more important, enough workers had to be willing and able to carry on the strike until the employer came to terms. In turn that meant unions needed funds to support the workers while the strike lasted. Though these are simple and obvious conditions, they were not always obvious in their detailed and practical application to specific cases, especially for rank-and-file workers in the heat of passion or the depths of despair. Certainly the conditions were not always easy to meet.

     Strikes could break out among a crucial section of the workers, enough to shut the plant down, over a variety of issues. One might be news that the plant was making large profits. More often a strike broke out in reaction to some specific act of injustice to a few individuals. In the beginning stages there was a good deal of euphoria and excitement. But the end was often failure and disenchantment.(p.217-218)  

. . .

Identification with the Empire.

Concretely and specifically, decent human treatment meant that minimum of respect and concern due to all members of the national community. This they felt their superiors owed them. Decent human treatment meant a minimum of security in old age: that the factory worker would not be cast on the social dump heap as his strength began to fail and his human demands and family responsibilities reached their peak. It meant further that wages should be high enough to satisfy material wants at a traditional working-class level, plus perhaps, at least in hopeful fantasy, a little place in the country, or more realistically a shack and garden plot on the edge of the city. Finally, it meant political equality in an old-fashioned liberal sense. That in turn required an end to the Prussian three-class franchise system, which helped to secure the predominance of Junker and business interests in Prussia and hence indirectly in Germany as a whole. There was no notion of taking over the factories by the working class, at least not yet, and certainly no notion of a dictatorship of the proletariat. The SPD leaders, aware that the workers were a minority, insisted on democratic political procedures, claiming correctly that it was their opponents among the dominant  classes who had strong inclinations to resort to authoritarian measures. Hence the demand for decent human treatment amounted to a demand for acceptance in the existing social order, for its modification in the direction of grater equality, but certainly not its revolutionary overthrow. From the demand for acceptance into the social order it could only be a very short step to a positive willingness to defend this order when a foreign enemy loomed on the horizon.

     The brevity of this step and its fateful consequences were apparent to no one at the time. Certainly not to the ordinary workers, and not to the socialist leaders who took it. It was not even clear to those who courageously and relentlessly opposed it. They misperceived the power of the demand for decent human treatment and suffered from the illusion that they had the masses behind them. Later, as the destructiveness and sufferings of the war had their impact on German society, it would become possible to mobilize a substantial body of working-class support in favor of ending the wr. That was not to be in 1914. Nevertheless it is unfair to use the far from absolutely reliable wisdom of historical hindsight to belabor the actors in the drama of 1914 for failing to realize that the longings of the downtrodden could be met only within the framework of a concrete national state and that a world of independent national states was likely to be a world of wars and preparation for wars. After all, neither modern revolutionaries nor modern liberals have done more than barely acknowledge the dilemma – far less anything to resolve it.

     From the wisdom of hindsight it would also be a mistake, I think, to hold that the patriotism of the German working class in 1914 was an absolutely foregone conclusion, the smooth culmination of underlying social trends. Up to the last moment there were countercurrents: mass demonstrations in Stuttgart, a Vorwärts extra on July 25, 1914, proclaiming ‘Down with the war! Hail to the international brotherhood of peoples!’ The tension was high, not only in the leading circles of the SPD, and of course the government, but also among wide sectors of the public, including many workers. After the Special Democratic fraction had come out in support of the government, the tension snapped. A wave of tremendous relief swept much of the nation and affected many ordinary workers. The sharp pain of divided loyalties had come to a close. At the same moment  - if only for a moment – the workers seemed to have achieved the dream of full acceptance into the social order. August Springer comments on the rapid change of mood. Shortly after the mass demonstrations against the war in Stuttgart, all the people in a trolley car in a ‘red’ area sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland über Alles!’ The sentiment was very widespread that Germany was morally in the right and its very existence threatened. The most striking feature, mentioned in other accounts as well, was an almost drunken sense of belonging together with everybody else in one huge social body: Germany. Finally, there was great relief at the apparently sudden disappearance of the daily demands of a rather boring existence. Such a sense of relief and belongingness resembles closely the ‘disaster euphoria’ that modern investigators have observed to be the result of the temporary suspension of social routines and obligations in the wake of sudden disasters like foods, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

     This was neither the first nor the last time in human history where an exalted sense of human brotherhood has had murderous consequences.(pp.224-226)


Militance and apathy in the Ruhr before 1914.

By this time, if not before, skeptical readers may be asking themselves the same questions that have occurred to the author. Perhaps the reason why no mass of potentially revolutionary workers has appeared is simply because we have not been looking for them in the right way. Taking all of Germany as the object for investigation runs the risk of obliterating decisive regional concentrations of industry and industrial workers. To some extent the analysis has already covered this point in the data on big cities and big factories. But, one could still ask, where is the Ruhr with its teeming masses of miners and workers in the blast furnaces? Has it just vanished? And a reader familiar with German history might well ask about the bearing of the huge uprising in the Ruhr that occurred shortly after the First World War, complete with an indigenous Red Army that captured some of the major cities. Since that important event will play a part in the story to come in the next two chapters, there is no need to say anything about it here beyond the remark that the uprising is hard to square with any conception of proletarian revolution. If coming events cast their shadows before them, it is almost impossible for the social historian to discern their traces in the social world of the Ruhr before 1914.

     To anticipate a bit, if one looks only for a massive industrial proletariat in the Ruhr before 1914, one faces a disappointment that, so far as I can see, no amount of statistical ingenuity can overcome. (p.227)


The 22 + items below include articles and essays which raise more questions than they answer. We are inundated by a population of collaborators, who are rewarded to remain silent. A healthy skepticism must be rescued from this conspiracy of somnolent silence. If not by you, by whom?


Relief will not come by capitulating to corporate interests and conforming to the strictures of “the new normal.” As always, the tried and proven remedy to tyrany is the age old practice: Question Authority!

FULL SHOW: The Plot to Assassinate Julian Assange


with Chris Hedges



Imperialist gangsterism and the CIA plot to kill Julian Assange



by Thomas Scripps


Revelations that the CIA discussed the assassination of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange confirm the staggering criminality of the US and British ruling class. By rights, they should see the US extradition case against Assange still proceeding through the UK High Court thrown out, and the investigation and prosecution of the conspirators up to the highest level of the US and UK governments and their intelligence agencies.

According to an investigation by Yahoo News published Sunday, President Donald Trump’s CIA director Mike Pompeo christened WikiLeaks a “non-state hostile intelligence service” in 2017 to make its employees and associates a legitimate target for CIA “offensive counterintelligence” activities.

Pompeo then asked for plans to be drawn up for Assange’s kidnap or assassination. The report is based on information from more than 30 US sources. Both Pompeo and the CIA have refused to comment.


The Plot to Kill Julian Assange: Report Reveals CIA’s Plan to Kidnap,


Assassinate WikiLeaks Founder



with Amy Goodman



Did the CIA under the Trump administration plan to kidnap and assassinate WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during a shootout in London? That is one of the explosive findings in a new exposé by Yahoo News that details how the CIA considered abducting and possibly murdering Assange while he took refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to avoid being extradited to Sweden for rape allegations, charges that were dropped in 2017. More than 30 former officials say former CIA Director Mike Pompeo was apparently motivated to get even with WikiLeaks following its publication of sensitive CIA hacking tools, which the agency considered “the largest data loss in CIA history.” Michael Isikoff, chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo News, lays out the plans and describes how the abduction plan “was one of the most contentious intelligence debates of the entire Trump era,” noting it ultimately spurred the Justice Department to fast-track its legal case against Assange. We also speak with Assange’s legal adviser Jennifer Robinson, who says the latest revelations should alarm American citizens, as well as journalists around the world. “This is the CIA talking about conspiracy to kidnap and murder an Australian citizen and an award-winning journalist and editor who has done nothing but publish truthful information.”

The Democrats-and-media are lying just as shamelessly as the Republicans-and-media did 15 and 19 years ago (when the Democrats went AWOL after Bush/Cheney's fake "victories").

Back then, it was the GOP that had to steal elections, because Bush the Younger was unpopular (especially in 2004), and the party's Christianist-inflected platform turned people off. Now it's the Democrats whose platform---masks, mandatory shots, lockdowns,  trans activism and a lot more war---has minimal appeal, as does the unspeakable Joe Biden.

From Kanekoa the Great (on Telegram):


Josh Barnett is saying that the "actual number is way off" from the 2.1 million ballots that are supposed to be there.

Christina Bobb said that they will likely find “substantially less” than 2.1 million ballots.

Boris Epshteyn said that 25% or more of the boxes are missing ballots.

In other words, Maricopa County's election officials fought a court ordered-subpoena for 5-months, then refused to turn over their election routers, didn't turn over chain of custody documentation, deleted an election database, don't have their admin passwords for their voting machines, didn't properly seal their ballots, and they are also missing a substantial amount of Maricopa County's 2.1 million ballots.

All in a state that was decided by 10,475 votes.

Am I missing anything else about how Maricopa County ran the "most safe and secure election ever" in American history❓

3)    Australia bans Ivermectin by Mark Crispin Miller (28 Sep 2021 12:49 EDT)
Reply to list

If the cops don't kill you, the "Covid" will.



Conflict has arisen between Australian citizens, health practitioners, and professors after a recent decision to ban health practitioners from prescribing ivermectin to COVID-19 patients. This most recent aggressive move by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) reflects a trend worldwide. National drug regulatory bodies are scrutinizing the drug even while in some cases public research institutes embark on large clinical trials. In the U.S. the National Institutes of Health (NIH) changed their ivermectin recommendation from use only for clinical trials to a more neutral stance (that is they do not recommend for or against due to lack of sufficient data). In the USA there is now concerted pressure indirectly from various government agencies (e.g. FDA and possibly NIH and CDC) to professional medical and pharmacy societies and boards to send out cautionary messages to their membership. In the USA that message is working as providers around the country share with TrialSite that it has become exceedingly difficult to fill an off-label ivermectin prescription. Australia has taken a far more aggressive tact—essentially banning GPs from prescribing for COVID-19.

23 Sept 2021 | The co-founder of a Black Lives Matter group in New York warned of an "uprising" similar to the George Floyd protests last year over vaccination requirements. Chivona Newsome, an organizer with Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, led a protest on Monday at Carmine's Italian Restaurant in New York City after a hostess denied entry to three black women last week because they would not provide proof of vaccination. The women, tourists from Texas, allegedly attacked the hostess and were arrested on charges of assault and criminal mischief. "Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated," Newsome said during the protest at Carmine's, according to The Washington Examiner.

Wuhan Red Herring? While COVID-19 Origins Remain Obscure, for Decades the West has been Creating Deadly Viruses for BioWarfare

By Gwen D'Arcangelis on Sep 29, 2021 09:00 am

From the U.S. Right to the U.S. Left, We Need to Reorient our Attention to What Our Own Government and Scientists Have Been Doing in Germ Research and Germ Warfare Labs.

At the end of August, the U.S. intelligence community released its 
report on the origins of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The findings, however, left us in the same place we started—with no definitive answer as to whether the virus arose naturally or from a lab leak.

The question of the virus’s origins has been intensely politicized since the start of the pandemic. Most notably, the U.S. right has pushed the Wuhan lab leak theory to advance a hawkish stance towards China—with tales of inept Chinese researchers or worse, sinister Chinese bio-weaponeers turning coronaviruses into germ weapons. These assertions are part of a growing China-as-threat narrative peddled by U.S. and European press and officials, and conveniently serve to divert blame […]

Yet another rational argument for Branch Covidians to bristle at.

From Dale Riever:

Andrew Kaufman just posted an excellent 9min audiovisual piece on the absurdity of masks. It has a great conclusion.

For those tight on time, he shows that technically, used masks are a biohazard, saturated as they are with “deadly virus“. Yet there is no special disposal for them. He shows lab techs wearing hermetically sealed suits to protect themselves from “virus“, but points out there are no sanitation workers getting sick from handling millions of bio-waste infested masks! Quite good:

YouTube bans accounts with vaccine misinformation


Youtube announced Wednesday that it will ban several prominent accounts that spread false information about vaccines, a move that is part of an expansion of its medical misinformation policies.

Under the new policies, the Google-owned site will remove any videos claiming that approved vaccines are dangerous or cause chronic health side effects.

That means videos implying vaccines cause autism, cancer or infertility will now be taken down.

Videos about vaccine policies, like ones arguing against mandates, will not run afoul of the new guidelines.

As part of the policy launch, several high profile accounts are being pulled down.

The accounts of Robert F. Kennedy’s Children’s Health Defense Fund, alternative medicine influencer Joseph Mercola and vaccine critic and physician Sherri Tenpenny will all be removed.

These individuals have been identified by experts as partially responsible for the vaccine skepticism that has slowed efforts to inoculate Americans against COVID-19.

Youtube did not act on these well known accounts sooner, according to Vice President of Global Trust and Safety Matt Halprin, because the platform was focused specifically coronavirus vaccine misinformation.

“As we saw false claims about the coronavirus vaccines spill over into misinformation about vaccines in general, we worked to expand what we’d started with COVID-19 to other vaccines,” he said in a statement.

Youtube, like Facebook and Twitter, banned coronavirus misinformation near the beginning of the pandemic.

Despite those rules, falsehoods about the threat of the virus and vaccines have still flourished online.

Whistleblower Lawsuit! Government Medicare Data Shows 48,465 DEAD Following COVID Shots - Remdesivir Drug has 25% Death Rate!
September 28, 2021 2:46 pm
Ohio-based Attorney Thomas Renz spoke at an event in Colorado this past weekend, and stated that more whistleblowers have now come forward, and that the death rate with those taking the COVID-19 vaccines is much higher than they originally thought. Presenting data that he claims comes directly from the CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) database, there have been 48,465 deaths among CMS beneficiaries within 14 days of a 1st or 2nd dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. There are about 59.4 million Americans covered by Medicare, representing 18.1% of the population, so these are staggering numbers! As attorney Renz states: "You're being defrauded by your government!"

N.Y. Governor Kathy Hochul's "God" is Satan - Preaches at NYC Church and Proudly Displays the "Mark of the Beast"
September 28, 2021 6:12 pm
New York Governor Kathy Hochul preached a sermon at a NYC church this past Sunday, and claimed that those who had not yet taken a COVID-19 shot "aren't listening to God and what God wants." There is only one possible way that any of her words could have any kind of truthful meaning. Her use of the word "god" is actually Satan. If by the word "god" she means her god, who is actually Satan, then everything she says makes perfect sense. Because true believers don't listen to the voice of Satan, but to the voice of God. And we won't take the "vaccine," because it represents the "mark of the beast," Satan. Jesus himself condemned people who claimed to know and represent God, but in fact represented Satan. Jesus warned his disciples that days like this would come, where killing people who follow Jesus Christ will actually be considered a service to "God." Kathy Hochul apparently neither knows God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, nor his son Jesus Christ. She is one of the many false prophets we have been warned about in the Bible. Jesus gives us assurance that he has everything under control, and that we do not need to fear these false prophets. "The prince of this world now stands condemned. I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

IRS would track all bank transactions over $600 under Biden plan; businesses revolt | 27 Sept 2021 | A major component of Joe Biden's plan to raise revenue to pay for his trillions of d-llars in new federal spending is now under fire from trade associations across the country. The Biden administration has made clear its plan to beef up IRS auditing by expanding the agency's funding and power. Biden's latest proposal would require banks to turn over to the Internal Revenue Service bank account information for all accounts holding more than 600. In a sharp pushback against the proposal, more than 40 trade associations, some of which represent entire industries or economic sectors, signed a letter to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., raising the alarm about the plan.
COVID-19 - The Spartacus Letter | 27 Sept 2021 | On September 26, 2021, a scientist published the following document about COVID-19, outlining complete disease function and treatment, and revealing this outbreak to be a criminal conspiracy of such magnitude as to defy belief. The scientist did this anonymously, fearing employment retaliation for revealing these truths, which have been known for over a year in the medical and scientific communities. The scientist cites irrefutable medical facts about the disease itself, outlines the effort to thwart successful treatment of the disease outside a leaky and dangerous gene therapy masquerading as a "vaccine," and explains how this process has resulted in the wholesale slaughter of innocent people around the world. Here is the Spartacus Letter, which can also be found here.

Navy SEALs Told They're Undeployable If They Don't Get COVID-19 Vaccine - Lawyers | 28 Sept 2021 | Navy SEALs have been informed by their superiors that they won’t be deployed if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine, even if they're granted a religious or medical exemption, according to lawyers representing the elite special operations troops and a document seen by The Epoch Times. "What they've been told is if they apply for a religious accommodation, they will no longer be deployable," R. Davis Younts, who is representing seven SEALs and is in talks to take on approximately 20 others, told The Epoch Times. Timothy Parlatore, whose firm represents a number of SEALs and other service members concerned about the vaccines, said his clients have also been given a similar ultimatum. Some SEALs have even been sent home mid-deployment for refusing a vaccine, one of his clients told him.
Biden administration 'strongly opposes' honorable discharge for service members who refuse COVID-19 vaccine | 22 Sept 2021 | The Biden administration has come out against an amendment to the defense budget that would prevent the Pentagon from dishonorably discharging service members who refuse to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The Office of Management and Budget said in a statement Tuesday that the administration "strongly opposes" the amendment, arguing that if it's implemented, it would "detract from readiness and limit a commander's options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination." ...Tennessee Republican Rep. Mark Green, a veteran, has led the push to prevent the military from discharging service members who refuse the vaccine with any distinction other than honorable via the National Defense Authorization Act.
United Airlines to lay off nearly 600 workers who refused to get vaccinated | 28 Sept 2021 | United Airlines will begin the process of laying off roughly 600 employees -- less than 1 percent of its workforce -- who refused to comply with the company's COVID-19 vaccine mandate, it announced Tuesday. The Chicago-based airline said that 99 percent of its workforce provided proof of vaccination prior to a Monday deadline. United will move to fire those who did not seek an exemption or provide proof of vaccination, but the carrier will give them one more chance to comply with the mandate during the separation process. The percentage of vaccinated United employees excludes the less than 3 percent of the company's 67,000 employees who sought a religious or medical exemption. Six United employees filed a lawsuit against the airline last week over its policy to put exempt employees on unpaid leave.
Protesters Against Vaccine Mandates in NYC: 'This Is a Turning Point' | 28 Sept 2021 | New Yorkers gathered for the second time this month at Foley Square in Manhattan to protest vaccine mandates. New York teachers and other Department of Education staffers were mandated to take the vaccine by city authorities. The mandate was supposed to take effect on Sept. 27, but was temporarily blocked by a federal judge on Sept. 24. However, a federal appeals panel ruled in favor of the mandate hours before it was scheduled to begin.
Northwell Health first to fire hospital staff who refuse vaccinations | 27 Sept 2021 | It's D-Day for mandates. New York's largest hospital system, Northwell Health, began sacking staff who refused to get their coronavirus vaccine shots as Gov. Kathy Hochul refused to yield on her Monday deadline for health worker inoculations. Hochul stuck to her guns as many of the state's major hospital and government employee unions continued their court battle to get the mandates tossed. Northwell -- which operates Lennox Hospital in Manhattan and Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens -- confirmed it had fired roughly two dozen managers Monday after they repeatedly failed to get their shots.
Foreign workers could replace NY's unvaccinated hospital, nursing home staffers - Hochul | 22 Sept 2021 | The nearly 20 percent of workers at hospitals and nursing homes who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 will be replaced -- potentially by foreigners -- once the state's mandate goes into effect next week, Gov. Kathy Hochul said Wednesday. Hochul told reporters in Rochester that she hoped that all unvaccinated employees would meet Monday’s deadline. "To those who won't, we'll be replacing people. And I have a plan that's going to be announced very shortly,” she said. Hochul said state officials were "working closely with various hospital systems to find out where we can get other individuals to come in and supplement places like nursing homes. We're also reaching out to the Department of State to find out about visas for foreign workers, on a limited basis, to bring more nurses over here," she said. [Recall the prime directive by these terrorists: destruction of the US from within.]
Federal judges: NYC can impose vaccine mandate on teachers; attorneys to petition Supreme Court to intervene | 27 Sept 2021 | The nation's largest school district can immediately impose a vaccine mandate on its teachers and other workers, after all, a federal appeals panel decided Monday, leading lawyers for teachers to say they'll ask the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene. The three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan issued a brief order late in the day that lifted a block of the mandate that a single appeals judge had put in place on Friday. After an adverse ruling from a Brooklyn judge, a group of teachers had brought the case to the appeals court, which assigned a three-judge panel to hear oral arguments Wednesday. But the appeals panel issued its order Monday after written arguments were submitted by both sides. Attorney Mark Fonte, who brought the lawsuit on behalf of teachers and others, said in a statement that he and attorney Louis Gelormino were immediately petitioning the Supreme Court to intervene.
Parents, Lawmakers Sue Over New York's School Mask Mandate | 27 Sept 2021 | A group of New York parents and two local legislators are suing to overturn the state's requirement for school children to wear masks. They allege the mandate was issued illegally and wouldn't stand up to scrutiny if the state tried to pass it through the correct procedures. They're asking the court to toss the mandate as "arbitrary and capricious." State Sen. George Borrello (R-Sunset Bay), one of the plaintiffs, said he’s hearing the majority of his constituents in the Niagara Falls area are against masking children. His gripe, however, is mainly with what he sees as the usurpation of power by the governor.
Hospital System That Serves Four States Fires 175 Workers After Vaccine Mandate | 28 Sept 2021 | Days after announcing that about 375 healthcare employees would be suspended, a North Carolina-based hospital system confirmed Monday that around 175 workers were fired in one of the largest-ever mass terminations due to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Several days ago, Novant Health announced that around 375 of its employees had been suspended and were given five days to comply with the company's mandate. "They will have an opportunity to comply over a five-day, unpaid suspension period," the company's release said. "If a team member remains non-compliant after this suspension period, he or she will have their employment with Novant Health terminated.”
Mask, COVID-19 vaccine mandates remain in place after Connecticut Senate extends Gov. Lamont's emergency powers until at least February | 28 Sept 2021 | After a sharp, partisan debate about the severity of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the state Senate voted Tuesday to extend Gov. Ned Lamont's (D) emergency powers for a sixth time -- pushing the powers to nearly two full years. Following nearly four hours of debate, the measure passed by 18-15 with two Democrats -- Senators Cathy Osten of Sprague and Dennis Bradley of Bridgeport -- breaking with their party and voting with the Republicans against the extension. The Senate vote, in the form of a resolution, assures Lamont will retain the emergency powers through early next year. The House passed the extension Monday by 80 to 60 with 11 lawmakers absent... "How about the Big E, governor? Did you enjoy?" State Sen. Rob Sampson (R-Wolcott) said, adding that he did not see Lamont wearing a mask at the annual festival in Massachusetts. "How dumb does the governor think we are? ...It's pretty clear that he doesn't believe it's an emergency...As far as I know, you can still take a tour of the state Capitol building. We're even taking in Afghan refugees...There's in-person bill signings without masks...You cannot have it both ways.”
Federal judge temporarily blocks South Carolina's ban on school mask mandates | 28 Sept 2021 | A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked South Carolina’s statewide ban on school mask mandates, arguing that the provision discriminates against students with disabilities. Judge Mary Geiger Lewis for the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina granted a motion for a preliminary injunction against the one-year law that had been written into the state's budget and put school districts at risk of losing funding should they require students and staff to wear masks. The ACLU of South Carolina had filed a lawsuit against the provision on behalf of two disability advocacy organizations and a group of South Carolina parents of children with disabilities, such as asthma and autism. The judge sided with the plaintiffs Tuesday, comparing the mask mandate to schools being required to add ramps “to accommodate those with mobility-related disabilities so they could access a free public education."
Republican Lawmakers Question Attacks on Ivermectin as COVID-19 Treatment | 28 Sept 2021 | A group of Republican lawmakers threw their support behind doctors who advocate for the right to try ivermectin, an inexpensive anti-parasitic drug, for treating COVID-19. Ivermectin is the latest drug caught in controversy after demand surged dramatically in August... Critical care physician Pierre Kory describes correctly administered ivermectin as "a gift" in the fight against COVID-19. "I know ivermectin works. I've been using it to treat patients for 10 months now," Kory told The Epoch Times. During the pandemic, Kory led intensive care units in several hotspots, including New York City. He is one of the founding members of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, which "strongly recommends" the use of ivermectin in both the prevention and treatment of the virus. Kory briefed more than 20 members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus on Sept. 27 about the efficacy of the drug. During the briefing, Kory claimed that ivermectin has helped reduce COVID-19 deaths by 88 percent with early treatment and by about 75 percent in cases of hospitalization, based on data from Mexico City and Misiones, a province in Argentina where a large number of patients were treated with ivermectin.
North Dakota Republican latest House breakthrough COVID-19 case | 26 Sept 2021 | Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-N.D.) tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, becoming the latest breakthrough case in the U.S. House. Armstrong wrote in a statement posted to Twitter that he received a positive test after feeling mild symptoms. He said he has been fully vaccinated since January, and will quarantine for 10 days. "After experiencing mild symptoms I took a COVID test, and the result was positive. I have been fully vaccinated since January, and I am taking all precautions and recovering at home in North Dakota. I have been advised by my doctor to quarantine for ten days," Armstrong wrote in a statement.
Outspoken Marine officer who went viral blasting military leaders over Afghanistan is jailed - report --Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller rose to internet stardom by posting video slamming US withdrawal from Afghanistan | 28 Sept 2021 | Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, the officer who went viral for blasting the military's leadership amid the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, has been sent to the brig, according to a report. "All our son did is ask the questions that everybody was asking themselves, but they were too scared to speak out loud," Scheller's father, Stu Scheller Sr., told Task & Purpose. "He was asking for accountability. In fact, I think he even asked for an apology that we made mistakes, but they couldn't do that, which is mind-blowing." Scheller first rose to internet stardom by posting a video to Facebook blasting military leaders for the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, questioning their command decisions on the events leading up to and during the final evacuation effort.
Austin, Milley Say White House Was Advised to Keep US Troops in Afghanistan | 28 Sept 2021 | Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley had cautioned the White House that a full withdrawal of forces would likely result in a Taliban takeover -- but by the time Joe Biden asked him directly in late August whether any forces should stay, it was too late, the nation's top military leader testified Tuesday. At a hearing of the Senate Armed Service Committee, members on both sides of the aisle had pointed questions about the evacuation and the longer-term mistakes, and the hearing was the first time that both Milley and U.S. Central Command chief Gen. Frank McKenzie were able to publicly state that they had wanted to keep as many as 2,500 U.S. forces in Afghanistan post-withdrawal. Last month, Biden told ABC that none of the commanders had advised him to leave a small troop presence in Afghanistan. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Milley testified that commanders' concerns -- that a full withdrawal could hasten Taliban takeover -- were conveyed to the Biden White House in the months leading up to the Aug. 31 withdrawal deadline.
Border Patrol was 'thrown under the bus' by Biden administration, top union official says --Biden administration used Border Patrol horse images to deflect blame, union vice president says | 27 Sept 2021 | Border patrol agents are mad and upset that leadership is throwing them under the bus, a top official with the agency's union told Fox News in Del Rio, Texas. "The agents feel like - at all levels of management, from [Customs and Border Protection] to [the Department of Homeland Security] and to the White House - that they've been thrown under the bus because no investigation has been completed, yet you're hearing the president say these people will pay," National Border Patrol Council Vice President Jon Anfinsen told Fox News. "The secretary echoed those sentiments," he continued. "And then Friday, of course, CBP's commissioner basically said the same thing."
Gov. DeSantis to investigate Facebook for alleged violations of election laws --DeSantis has directed Florida's secretary of state to look into the matter | 27 Sept 2021 | Gov. Ron DeSantis has directed Florida's secretary of state's office to launch a probe into whether Facebook has violated any of the state's election laws through its program granting purported preferential treatment to some candidates. The governor pointed to The Wall Street Journal's bombshell report from earlier this month regarding internal documents about the social media giant's XCheck program, which Facebook itself admits grants a second level of review for high-profile users like politicians - but not every candidate in every race. "It's no secret that Big Tech censors have long enforced their own rules inconsistently," DeSantis said in a statement announcing the move on Monday.
$3.5T spending package includes big money for 'tree equity,' bias training and more --Republicans, some pivotal Democrats blast extra spending as unnecessary | 27 Sept 2021 | Nearly 79 billion for the IRS, 12 billion for electric cars, 3 billion for "tree equity," 1 billion to turn government facilities into "high-performance green buildings," and new funding for gender identity issues and bias training -- Fox News can now reveal these and other controversial spending items in Democrats' multi-trillion-dollar reconciliation package, following the House Budget Committee's release and approval of the full draft legislation on Saturday... Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are promising another 2.8 billion to increase the capacity of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to efficiently adjudicate applications and to reduce case-processing backlogs. Those applications are expected to be created by another part of the bill, which would give lawful permanent residence to certain entrants into the United States.
GOP blocks debt limit hike, government funding | 27 Sept 2021 | Senate Republicans on Monday evening blocked a measure to fund the government and suspend the debt ceiling, carrying through on their threat to not deliver votes for a Democratic measure to raise the government's borrowing limit. The vote tally was 48-50. Sixty votes were needed to advance the measure. No Republicans voted for the legislation.

9)    The purges have begun by Mark Crispin Miller (29 Sep 2021 17:25 EDT)
Reply to list

How this began: The virus was here (the US) already for months from 2019 and life went on normally.
Once the consciousness seeped in and the politicians panicked, we moved quickly from travel restrictions to lockdowns to mask mandates to domestic capacity restrictions to vaccine mandates. Somewhere along the way, we learned to classify people by profession, stigmatize the sick, then finally to demonize the noncompliant. It’s been 20 months of intensified controls, driven by political leaders from both parties, with precious little dissent from media organs.
The pace has been furiously fast but somehow just slow enough that people and media personalities adjust to the new, the cycle proceeds, last week’s shock becomes this week’s normal, and then politicians scramble to create the next big intervention, covering previous failures with new nostrums, all while ignoring or censoring opposing views.
Even hard-won scientific knowledge of 100 years – for example natural immunity – has been memory holed. We reference Orwell often because there is a dystopian feel to it all, describable best by reference to stories we only imagined through the help of books and movies. Hunger Games, Matrix, V for Vendetta, Equilibrium – they all come to mind.
The policies have been bad enough but the political polarization has been the real poison. In history, we’ve seen where this leads. New and random mandates from political leaders become loyalty tests. Compliant people are viewed as enlightened and obedient. The noncompliant are regarded as stupid and probably politically threatening. They are purgeable.
In this particular case, the mainstream media has argued for months that noncompliance correlates very closely with Trump support, which everyone knows is a civic sin of the highest order even though he won the presidency 5 years ago. This realization was an invitation to the Biden administration to ramp up its mandates, finding any and every means to get the federal bureaucracies to penetrate the policy walls to the states that exist under the Constitution.
They easily found the agency Occupational Safety and Health Administration, twisted a few words, and like magic discovered a basis on which to override state-based limits on vaccine mandates. It’s using medicine as a means of political punishment.
One tip-off of the political agenda here is that the data associations of the unvaxed by Trump support only work with 50 data points, meaning state boundaries, as Justin Hart has pointed out. Expand that out by county-level data with 3,000-plus data points and the correlation almost entirely disappears. Further, if you look at vaccination by race and income, you find very low compliance among voters usually associated with Democratic support. So the war on the “red states” being waged by the federal government today is really just about consolidating political support, state by state.
Regardless, the effects of the mandates are real and devastating for millions of people. People are losing their jobs because they are unwilling to go along. And all of this occurs in the midst of a chronic labor shortage: bosses are being told by the government to dismiss people from their jobs just when their companies are struggling for resources.

11)     PETITION for a grand jury to investigate the CDC's illegal inflation of COVID death rates by Mark Crispin Miller (29 Sep 2021 17:35 EDT)
Reply to list

From Diana Cook:
In March 2020, the CDC abruptly changed how death certificates were recorded. However, the CDC only made this change for one type of death — COVID-19 — and apparently broke multiple federal laws to do so. Shortly thereafter, the CDC adopted the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists’ April 15, 2020 position paper for defining what constitutes a COVID case. The CDC did so without implementing safeguards to ensure that the same individual would not be counted multiple times.

Together, these acts ended up significantly and irrevocably altering COVID-19 case counts, mortality data and other pertinent data. They illustrate what appears to be ongoing instances of willful misconduct by the CDC, FDA and other federal agencies throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Collectively, these acts set the stage for interminable lockdown measures and a bevy of policies that have been instituted in the name of protecting public health.

Pfizer Scientist: ‘Your Antibodies are Probably Better


than the Vaccination’


with Nick Karl and Chris Croce

(video, 9:59)


Nick Karl, a scientist who is directly involved in the production of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, said that natural immunity is more effective than the very vaccine he works on, and Pfizer produces.

“When somebody is naturally immune -- like they got COVID -- they probably have more antibodies against the virus…When you actually get the virus, you’re going to start producing antibodies against multiple pieces of the virus…So, your antibodies are probably better at that point than the [COVID] vaccination,” Karl said. Notwithstanding, Karl still believes that vaccine mandates are positive for society.

“The city [of New York] needs like vax cards and everything. It’s just about making it so inconvenient for unvaccinated people to the point where they're just like, ‘F*ck it. I’ll get it.’ You know?”

A second Pfizer official, Senior Associate Scientist, Chris Croce, corroborated Karl’s assertion about COVID immunity derivative of antibodies:

Sept. 24, 2021


I, Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long, MD, MPH, FS being duly sworn, depose and state as follows:

1. I make this affidavit, as a whistle blower under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act, Title 10 U.S.C. § 1034, in support of the above referenced MOTION as expert testimony in support thereof.

2. The expert opinions expressed here are my own and arrived at from my persons, professional and educational experiences taken in context, where appropriate, by scientific data, publications, treatises, opinions, documents, reports and other information relevant to the subject matter and are not necessarily those of the Army or Department of Defense.

Experience & Credentials

3. I am competent to testify to the facts and matters set forth herein. A true and accurate copy of my curriculum vitae is attached hereto as Exhibit A.

4. After receiving a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas Austin, completed my medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School in 2008. I served as a Field Surgeon for ten years and went on to complete a residency in Aerospace and Occupational Medicine at the United States Army School of Aviation Medicine, Fort Rucker, AL. I hold a Master’s in Public Health, and I have been trained by the Combat Readiness Center at Ft. Rucker as an Aviation Safety Officer. Additionally, I have trained in the Medical Management of Chemical and Biological Causalities at Fort Detrick and USAMIIRD.

5. I am board certified in flight Aerospace Medicine and board eligible in Occupational Medicine.

6. I am currently serving as the Brigade Surgeon for the 1st Aviation Brigade Ft. Rucker, Alabama and am responsible for certifying the health, mental and physical ability, and readiness for all nearly 4,000 individuals on flight status on this post.

7. My appended curriculum vitae further demonstrates my academic and scientific achievements by me over the past thirteen years.

8. Prior to the outset of the pandemic, I received specialized military training from Infectious Disease doctors from the Army, Navy and Air Force on emerging infectious disease threats, FEMA training, Emergency preparedness training, Medical effects of Ionizing Radiation, OSHA, Aerospace Toxicology, Epidemiology, Biostatistics, medical research and disaster planning. More recently I have functioned as a medical and scientific advisor to an Aviation training Brigade seeking to identify risk mitigation strategies, and bio statistical analysis of SARS- Cov-2 (“Covid 19”) infections in both vaccinated and unvaccinated Soldiers. In so doing, I have identified, diagnosed and treated Covid 19 pathogenic infections. I have observed vaccine adverse events following the administration of EUA vaccines, and followed the success of Soldiers who obtained various Covid 19 therapies outside the military. The majority of the service members within the DOD population are young and in good physical condition. Military aviators are a subset of the military population that has to meet the most stringent medical standards to be on flight status. The population of student pilots I take care of are primarily in their 20s-30s, males and in excellent physical condition. The risk of serious illness or death in this population from SARs-CoV-2 is minimal, with a survival rate of 99.997%.

9. In observing, studying and analyzing all the available data, information, samples, experiences, histories and results of these treatments and inoculations provided, I have formulated a professional opinion, which requires me to report those findings to superiors in the chain of command and colleagues in the military. I have done so with mixed results in terms of acceptance, rejection and threats of punishment for so sharing.

10. The application of risk management is critical to the safety and success in both medicine and aviation. Aerospace Medicine is a specialty devoted to safety of flight by the aeromedical dispositioning and treatment of flight crew members, as accomplished by the consistent and careful application of risk mitigation and management strategies. ATP 5-19, 1-3. Risk Management (RM)1 outlines a disciplined approach to express a risk level in terms readily understood at all echelons.

New York BLM Leader Promises National 'Uprising' Over 'Racist' Vaccine Mandates
 | 23 Sept 2021 | The co-founder of a Black Lives Matter group in New York warned of an "uprising" similar to the George Floyd protests last year over vaccination requirements. Chivona Newsome, an organizer with Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, led a protest on Monday at Carmine's Italian Restaurant in New York City after a hostess denied entry to three black women last week because they would not provide proof of vaccination. The women, tourists from Texas, allegedly attacked the hostess and were arrested on charges of assault and criminal mischief. "Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated," Newsome said during the protest at Carmine's, according to The Washington Examiner.

BLM organizer says de Blasio vaccine mandate weaponized against black community | 21 Sept 2021 | The co-founder of New York's Black Lives Matter chapter said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's citywide vaccine mandate is targeting the black community and creating conditions akin to segregation. "Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated," Chivona Newsome said during a Monday protest in New York City. "So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?" Newsome warned that her group could respond with an "uprising" similar to those that followed the death of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. "We're putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social distance practice. Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat. That is a promise," she said. "The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism.”

Unjabbed employees face large fines if they show up to work.

by Paul Joseph Watson

Sept. 24, 2021

The Italian government has passed a decree applying to both the private and public sector ordering companies to withhold pay from workers who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

The decree mandates that all employees get the vaccine ‘green pass’, which led to questions about what would happen to the millions of Italians who remain unvaccinated.

The government is attempting to avoid potential legal action by directing companies not to fire the unvaccinated, but simply to not pay them while telling employees not to show up to work under threat of being fined if they do so.

“Instead, they should be considered to be on an unjustified absence and have their wages or salaries withheld,” writes Ken Macon.

“Those found to be working without a vaccine passport could be punished with fines of up to €1,500. Additionally, the government said it would not cater for the test costs for those who would prefer not to take the vaccine.”

8)      Idaho's "shortage" of ICU beds is just another whopping propaganda lie by Mark Crispin Miller (25 Sep 2021 18:29 EDT)

From Tessa Lena:

I am about to send this juxtaposition as a story but I want to make sure I am not insane because, propaganda or not, lying that obviously would be stupid.

So, am I missing something? Did I misread the hospital availability? (Always a possibility). Or are they really lying so stupidly? 

Tessa also discovered that Idaho's "shortage" of ICU beds is based on a change in how they count them:

30,000+ Women in UK Report Menstrual Problems After COVID Shots, But Menstrual Issues Not Listed as Side Effect

Written By:  Children's Health Defense

"If we were to follow the scientific method, as it was taught in textbooks ... we would immediately see this observation of menstrual cycle changes in tens of thousands of women as a signal, for which necessary questions would need to be asked," Dr. Lawrence Palevsky told The Defender.

According to an editorial published Sept. 16 in The BMJ, more than 30,000 reports of menstrual irregularities and vaginal bleeding had been made, as of Sept. 2, to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency's (MHRA) Yellow Card Scheme -- the UK system for collecting and monitoring adverse reactions following COVID vaccines.

Reports of adverse reactions include heavier-than-usual periods, delayed periods and unexpected vaginal bleeding. Most women who reported a change to their period after vaccination found it returned to normal the following cycle, according to the author of the editorial, Dr. Victoria Male, a reproductive specialist at Imperial College in London.

To date, none of the COVID vaccine manufacturers list any issues pertinent to menstrual health as a side effect. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, common side effects of COVID vaccines include: pain at the site of vaccination, tiredness, fatigue and fever.

JUST IN - Data of over 1.5 billion Facebook users is being sold on a popular hacking-related forum. Data contains users’ names, emails, phone numbers, locations, gender, and user ID.

This is the largest and most significant Facebook data dump to date and seemingly unrelated to an earlier 2021 Facebook data dump.
