Subject: New Strategies for Concentrations of Wealth and Power & The Old Reliable Tactics of Divide and Rule.
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
The social origins of Japanese fascism are brought into focus by Barrington Moore, Jr in the fifth chapter of his seminal study, Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy: Lord and Peasant in the making of the Modern World (1966). Here we continue our presentation of this important chapter in comparative history.
Moore describes the ideologically timid commercial class in pre-modern Japanese society and the rowdy behavior of the Japanese peasantry in the same period, during the second half of the Tokugawa Shogunate, leading up to the Meiji Restoration in1868. It was a time when, in at least some parts of Japan, peasant revolts against feudal inequality and injustices were frequent and where,
… the peasants contributed an antifeudal and even faintly revolutionary component to the Restoration movement. The later years of the Tokugawa era were characterized by numerous outbreaks of peasant violence with substantial antifeudal overtones. Even if they apparently lacked very clear political objectives, they were a threat to the rulers. A detailed monograph on these uprising reports a total of around a thousand such affairs during the whole of the period, the majority of which displayed a direct relationship between the peasants and the governing class that controlled them. A chart of their frequency shows a sharp increase in the later years of the epoch, that is from 1772 to 1867. Imperial armies at times received help from peasant uprisings in the military clashes that accompanied the Restoration. In Echigo province, for example, 60,000 armed peasants blocked the commander of the Tokugawa forces in that region. Again, in other areas, the commanders of the Imperial forces exploited antifeudal sentiments by methods recalling contemporary political warfare. In one instance, the
‘Pacifier and Commander-in-Chief of the Tosando’ posted placards in prominent places and distributed manifestoes addressed to the peasants and traders in these villages, inviting them to appear before the local headquarters of the Imperial army and bring charges of tyranny and cruelty against the former Tokugawa administrators. They specifically appealed to the most impoverished orphans, widows, and those who had been persecuted b the feudal authorities. All complaints were promised a careful and sympathetic hearing, and it was further stated that justice would be meted out to guilty officials.’
The mildly revolutionary stand was of course not the lonely peasant contribution. Peasants fought on both sides of the Restoration struggle for a variety of motives. As we shall see later, there was also a strong reactionary component, not only among peasants but among other supporters of the Emperor, harking back to a pure and mythical feudal past. The interweaving of these strands is what gives the Meiji Restoration its protean and, so far as the immediate event is concerned, somewhat inconclusive character’.
The reader will have certainly recognized by this point that the Restoration was by no means pure class struggle and certainly not a bourgeois revolution, as some Japanese writers, though not to my knowledge any Western ones, have maintained. In some of its decisive aspects it was an old-fashioned, feudal struggle between the central authority and the fiefs. And the fiefs that led the struggle against the Shōgun, not only Chōshū, but also Satsuma – the ‘Prussia of Japan’ about which we know rather less – were ones where the traditional agrarian society and feudal loyalties remained relatively much stronger.
In marked contrast to some of the larger fiefs, Tokugawa finances became increasingly shaky toward the end of the period and, in the judgment of several historians, contributed to the final downfall of the Shogunate. But, as is usually the case with an ancient régime, the financial difficulties were no more than symptoms of deeper causes. The foreign danger daily increased the Sogunate’s need for revenues – and for an army that seemed to be a threat to the Tokugawa if not to thee Chōshū leaders. The merchants could not be pressed too hard without killing the goose. The only other source was the peasant, who had shown increasing restiveness under existing burdens.
Though these cleavages and issues formed the background to the Restoration, in the events that led up to it, from about 1860 onwards, they remained very much in the background. The ever-present threat of foreign armed intervention helped to make the Restoration a symbolic act that many groups could support for a wide variety of contradictory reasons. In itself the Restoration was not particularly decisive, and the implications for the future of Japanese society were not clear for some years. The struggles that accompanied it had very little of the character of programmatic conflicts among clearly defined interest groups. For these reasons the account of these years seems to a Westerner no more than a confusing web of intrigues, intricate and purposeless. They appear this way, I would suggest, precisely because the main actor’s within the ruling class were generally agreed on what they wanted: the ousting of the foreigner and a minimum of disturbance to the status quo. Down to the very last, according to one standard account, the Emperor wanted to act through the Shogunate in opposition to ‘extremist’ and ‘disorderly’ elements – in a word, against any thing that smacked of revolutionary change.(pp.242-244)
Moore attempts to summarize the causes of the Imperial Restoration in 1868.
At this point it may be helpful to assess in more general terms the causes of the Restoration. The fundamental one, I believe, was the partial erosion of the feudal edifice through the rise of commerce, which was in turn due to the establishment of peace and order. Together with the foreign intrusion, this erosion created problems toward whose solution the Restoration was one important step. The political reactionary aspects of the solution are to a great extent explicable in terms of the groups that the Imperial movement attracted. One was a section of the nobility at the Imperial court. Another consisted of a few disaffected leaders of fiefs where feudal institutions appear to have been particularly strong. Samurai, disaffected from their particular lord but by no means from feudal society as such, also made an important contribution. Among the commercial elements, the conservative old-line merchants were hostile to the idea of opening the country, as it would increase competition for them. Generally the merchants did not play an active part in the struggle itself, although Mitsui interests were on both sides of the fence. Only among the peasants, and there far from universally, can one find sighs of opposition to feudal institutions. In doctrinal terms, the Restoration took place under the banner of traditional symbolism, mainly Confucian. As we have seen, the old order faced no direct intellectual challenge; least of all one that stemmed from commercial interests.
In light of the groups that supported the Restoration, what is surprising is not that the new government did so little but that it did so much. As we shall see shortly, the Meiji government (1868-1912), as the new regime is known, took many important steps toward remaking Japan in the image of modern industrial society. What prompted this largely feudal revolution to carry out a program with many undoubtedly progressive features? The reasons are not hard to find and have been emphasized by many historians of Japan. There was sole shift in the character of the ruling class though that is probably a subordinate factor. Since the lines of cleavage in Japanese society were vertical as well as horizontal, they enabled a section of the agrarian ruling class to detach itself from the Tokugawa system and put through a revolution from above. The foreign threat was decisive in this connection. Under its unifying force, the new government acted in such a way as to preserve the privileges of a small segment of the élite, open up opportunities for others, and ensure national survival.
From 1868 onward, the new rulers of Japan, drawn in substantial measure from the pool of samurai that had been losing out under the old regime, faced two major problems. One was to achieve a modern centralized state. The other was to create a modern industrial economy. Both were necessary if Japan was to survive as an independent state. Together these problems amounted to the dismantling of a feudal society and the erection of a modern one in its place.
Such at least is the way the problem appears to the social historian with the advantages and disadvantages of hindsight. It is scarcely the way the problem appeared to contemporaries. Many had joined the movement to ‘Restore the Emperor – Expel the Barbarian’ in the hope of creating a new and better version of feudalism. Our formulation is too abstract and too concrete. Too abstract in that, by and large, the people behind the Restoration and the early years of the Meiji did not wish to see just any kind of modern state, but one that would preserve as much as possible of the advantages the ruling class had enjoyed under the ancient régime, cutting away just enough (which in practice turned out to be a great deal) to preserve the state, since they world otherwise lose everything. Too concrete in that it gives the impression of a specific unified program of modernization. The leaders of early Meiji Japan were no doctrinaire social theorists, catapulted like the Russian Marxists into the arena of political responsibility. Nevertheless, if these qualifications are kept in mind, this notion of the task before the Meiji leaders will help to sort out important facts of the period, their consequences, and their relationship to each other.
A most important first step toward the creation of an effective central government occurred in March of 1869, when the great Western fiefs of Chōshū, Satsuma, Hizen, and Tosa ‘voluntarily’ offered their territories to the throne, declaring at the same time, ‘There must be one central governing body and one universal authority, which must be preserved intact.’ This must have been a very ticklish moment. Clearly the Restoration might have been no more than a redistribution of power within the feudal system.
Why then did these leading fiefs take this step? Magnanimity and farsightedness may have played a part, as some historians claim, thought I am very skeptical about their importance. Much more significant may have been the fact that the daimy ō were allowed to retain half their revenues after the extensive negotiations that preceded this step, even though this was not the final solution. A still more important consideration was the fear on the part of these fiefs that, if they did not take this joint step, some one group of provincial leaders might step into the Tokugawa’s shoes. Satsuma itself at the time nourished exactly such ambitions. Rivalry, in other words, among the contenders for power strengthened the hand of central authority that as yet was quite weak.
For the moment, the government was not prepared to put its new powers to the test and left the former feudal rulers in charge as Imperial legates with the title of governor. Only two years later, however, in August 1871, it took the final step of announcing in a brief decree that feudal domains were to become units of local administration (prefectures) under the central government. Shortly afterwards, in a move that recalled the methods of the Tokugawa, it ordered all the former daimy ō to leave their estates and settle with their families in the capital. Indeed the similarity is more than fortuitous. The Tokugawa in their victory on 1600 had laid the foundations of a modern centralized state. The Meiji completed the process.
At the same time that it was establishing itself politically, the government passed a whole series of measures whose effect would not become fully visible until later. Their general purport was to strike off the feudal shackles on the free movement of persons and goods and thus encourage development along capitalist lines. In 1869 the government declared equality before the law for social classes, abolished local barriers to trade and communication, permitted freedom of cropping, and allowed individuals to acquire property rights in land. Though land had begun to emerge from feudal fetters under the Tokugawa, now it could take on the character of a commodity to be bought and sold like any other, with important consequences for the rest of society that we shall discuss in due course.
If the transformation were to be carried out at all peacefully, and from above instead of through a popular revolution, it was necessary to provide substantial compensation at least to key elements in the old order. In 1869 the government had granted to the daimy ō one-half of their revenues upon surrender of their fiefs. Such generosity could not continue. The government’s freedom to maneuver was narrow. In 1871 the attempt to revise the treaties in a way that would permit raising additional revenue did not succeed. In 1876 the government found it necessary to impose a compulsory reduction in the revenues of the daimy ō and the stipends of the samurai. Although all but the least important daimy ō received quite favorable treatment, the smaller feudal chieftains and the majority of the samurai suffered a severe cut. In effect, then, the new government rewarded a few of its key supporters handsomely. On the other hand, the Meiji found it necessary to repudiate the discontented samurai, an important source of the energy that had overthrown the old order.
The reduction of samurai stipends was simply the culmination of a long trend. Actually the Meiji merely finished off the process of destroying the samurai that, as we have see, was well under way during the Tokugawa period. Modernization in Japan did not involve the revolutionary liquidation of any section of the ruling class. Instead, there was a prolonged process of euthanasia lasting through three centuries. The social status of the samurai all but vanished with the proclamation of equality before the law, though they were allowed the empty distinction of being known as shizoku or former samurai, a distinction that carried with it no rights or exemptions. As warriors, they had already lost most of their function under the pax Tokugawa. The introduction of conscriptions in 1873 eliminated practically all of the distinctions that remained to them on that score. Finally, the opening up of property rights in land, as Sansom remarks, struck at the heart of feudal pride and privilege, since feudal society rested on the working of the land by the peasant and its ownership by the lord.
All this was scarcely what the samurai had bargained for in supporting the Restoration. Very many of those who took part in the overthrow of the Tokogawa probably did so with the intention of altering the feudal system in their favor rather than destroying it. Hence it is scarcely surprising that feudal forces revolted and attacked the new regime after the import of its policies had become clear. The Stasuma Rebellion of 1877 was the last bloody convulsion of the old order. As part of this final spasm, indeed, actually as the direct offspring of expiring feudalism, there appeared Japan’s first organized ‘liberal’ movement. The auspices could scarcely have been less auspicious.
After quelling the Satsuma Rebellion, the Meiji government was firmly in the saddle. In the space of nine years it had managed to dismantle the feudal apparatus and replace it with much of he basic framework of modern society. This was indeed a revolution from above and accomplished with a relatively small amount of violence in comparison with leftist revolutions of France in the eighteenth century or of Russia and China in the twentieth. On any account, it was a remarkable performance for the government that had to tread warily among the rivalries of great fiefs, lacking until after 1873 an army of its own and necessarily, as Sansom comments, much more anxious to preserve its own life than to examine its political and social anatomy.
Several factors contributed to Meiji success. The new rulers had used their opportunities wisely in terms of self-interest. As we have seen, they made large material concessions to the daimy ō and took the risk of antagonizing the samurai later. As far as the reduction of samurai stipends goes, it is difficult to see what else their resources at this point would have allowed them to do. And they refrained from becoming prematurely involved in a foreign war. At a deeper lever of historical causation, the Tokugawa regime had by its policies already undermined the dominance of the warrior and prepared the way for a centralized state without at the same time generating any overwhelming revolutionary potential. The Meiji regime was thus a continuation of pervious trends and, as the rest of our account will show, left much of the original structure standing. Finally, the Imperial institutional many historians of Japan have emphasized, provided a rallying point for fundamentally conservative forces and a framework of legitimate continuity within which to make a number of necessary adjustments.
Before carrying the analysis further, we may pause to reconsider the suggestions with which this chapter opened, to the effect that feudalism constitutes the key to the differing fates in modern times of Japan, Russia, and China. By this point it is perhaps apparent that differences in internal social structure constitute only one major variable, albeit an extremely important one. There were also differences in timing and in the external circumstances under which premodern institutions broke down and adapted themselves to the modern era.
For Japan, the advent of the West was a relatively sudden affair. The superiority of Western arms and technology became evident to many Japanese leaders very rapidly. The question of national survival and the need to take appropriate steps to defend it pushed their way to the forefront with dramatic speed. China, to which we may limit these preliminary comparative remarks for the sake of simplicity, seemed superior to the West at first. For a long time its rulers could treat the representatives of Western civilization with polite curiosity and disdain. In the course of time, partly for this reason, Westerns were able to gain a substantial territorial foothold in China. Only gradually did the inadequacy of the Imperial system become evident. At crucial points the West chose to support the Manchu dynasty against internal enemies, as in the Taiping Rebellion, a factor that further slowed any awakening of the rulers to the dangers that threatened them. When important circles had become fully alive to the dangers, let us say by time of the Boxer Rebellion, the process of dynastic decay had gone too far to be arrested.
In order to cope effectively with the foreign and domestic problems: that faced it in the latter part of the nineteenth century, the Chinese bureaucracy would have had to encourage commerce and widen the tax base. But such a policy would have undermined the hegemony of the scholar-official and the whole static agrarian order on which this hegemony was based. Instead, therefore, officials and prominent families appropriated local resources as the central apparatus broke down. The regional warlords of the early twentieth century replaced the Imperial bureaucracy of earlier times.
It is conceivable that one of these warlords might have subdued the others and reunited China to inaugurate a politically reactionary phase with some degree of industrial modernization. Chiang Kai-shek once seemed close to succeeding. If that had happened, historians might now be stressing the similarities between China and Japan rather than the differences. There would have been the important parallel of one segment of the society detaching itself from the rest to take over the government and to launch a conservative version of modernization.
But was such a possibility ever really ‘in the cards,’ as a losing gambler might phrase it? No flat answer is possible. Yet important factors were against it. In addition to the differences between Chinese bureaucracy and Japanese feudalism, there was, to repeat, the factor of timing. When Chiang sought to impose unity on China, he had to face an aggressive expanding Japan. There was also, to return to domestic differences, the contrast in character and outlook between the mandarin and the samurai, two figures that represent the precipitate of sharply different historical experiences. The pacific ideal of the gentleman-scholar-official turned out to be less and less adequate in the face of the modern world. The fate of the warrior ideal in Japan was substantially different. The ruling classes were looking for ways to recoup their fortunes. If they could shed certain anachronistic notions of feudal honor, they could make good use of modern technology in warlike ways that were not unfamiliar. As the Satsuma Rebellion shows, it was not easy to shed feudal romanticism. But it could be done and was done. On the other hand, what earthly use was modern technology to the classically trained Chinese scholar-official? It did not teach him how to deal with people in a way to keep them peaceful. At best it might provide a source of bribery, which corrupted the system, or serve as a toy and diversion. From the official’s standpoint it was not particularly desirable for the peasants, as it might make them lazy and insubordinate.
Thus the feudal military tradition in Japan provided at first a congenial basis for the reactionary version of industrialization, though in the long run it may turn out to have been fatal. In China’s premodern society and culture there was little or no basis out of which a militarist patriotism of the Japanese type could grow. In comparison with Japan, the reactionary nationalism of Chiang Kai-shek seems thin and watery. Only when China began to make over her own institutions in the communist image did a strong sense of mission appear.
Furthermore, despite the centralization of the Tonkugawa government, the feudal units of Japan still retained their separate identities as going concerns. The Japanese fiefs were independent cells that probably could have survived reasonably well if they had been separated from the Tokugawa body politic. What their leaders derived from the pax Tokugawa was the peaceful enjoyment of aristocratic privilege. When the system as a whole was suddenly threatened, it was not too difficult for a few of the feudatories to detach themselves and execute a coup d’état. Thus the Imperial Restoration had some of the characteristics of a successful Fronde. But a better parallel and one noticed nearly fifty years ago by Thorstein Veblen in his Imperial Germany and the Industrial Revolution, would be Prussia. Though there are very important differences to be discussed in due course, the essential similarity rests in the capacity of a segment of the landed aristocracy to promote industrialization against the will of it more backward members in order to catch up with other countries, as well as the disastrous culmination of the whole policy in the middle of the twentieth century. The survival of feudal traditions with a strong element of bureaucratic hierarchy is common to both German and Japan. It distinguishes them from England, France, and the United States where feudalism was overcome or absent and where modernization took place both early and under democratic auspices – fundamentally and with all due qualifications those of a bourgeois revolution. In this respect, Germany and Japan differ also from both Russia and China, which were agrarian bureaucracies rather than feudal polities.
Hence not feudalism itself, certainly not feudalism as a disembodied general category, holds the key to the way in which Japanese society entered the modern era. To feudalism one must add the distinct facto of timing. Secondly, it was Japan’s particular variety of feudalism with substantial bureaucratic elements that made possible the leap. The special character of the Japanese feudal bond, with its much greater emphasis on status and military loyalty than on a freely chosen contractual relationship, meant that one source of the impetus behind the Western variety of free institutions was absent. Again, the bureaucratic element in the Japanese polity produced its characteristic result of a tame and timid bourgeoisie unable to challenge the old order. The reasons for the absence of a serious intellectual challenge lie deeper in Japanese history but are part of the same phenomenon. The intellectual and social challenges that made the Western bourgeois revolutions were feeble to nonexistent. Finally, and perhaps most important of all, throughout the transition and on into the era of industrial society, the dominant classes were able to contain and deflect disruptive forces arising out of the peasants. Not only was there no bourgeois revolution, there was also no peasant revolution. To understand how and why it was possible to tame the peasantry will be our next task.(pp.245-254)
Next we will look at Moore’s attempt to explain the absence of a peasant revolution in Japan during its transition from an agrarian to an industrial society.
The 17 + items below bring to light the articles and essays now circulating in the Anglophone social media, raising issues which will dramatically affect our lives, as we enter a period of “revolution from above. The violence and censorship we are witnessing has created an environment of fear and confusion, with predictable domesticating effect: using elements to emerge and take upon themselves the promotion of corporate interests in the name of so-called “Solidarity,” by which is meant blind obedience, the results of which we have already seen in past episodes of ruling-class manipulations, such as in the history of France’s Union Sacrée at the time of WW I, or in German history, the Nazi solidarity in the WW II period to protect the Vaterland, or more recently (and on a much smaller scale, with hundreds and not millions of casualties) the “Solidarity” demonstrated in November 1978 in Guyana with the Jonestown Peoples Temple suicide pact. Ideologically disarming and bullying a population has always turned out bad historically, when dialogue is replace with command; reason, with rapport de force; and victims are dismissed as simply “collateral damage.”
The corporate revolution we are now witnessing is sterile. It will end in failure. But before it is over, the social price of this adventure will be felt by everyone.

Japan, Korea, and Northeast Asia : The Abe Shinzo Legacy
At the heart of Northeast Asia lie multiple contradictions and unresolved issues left over from Japan’s militarist and colonialist past. Author Wada has written prolifically on both Japan-North Korea and Japan-South Korea matters and for the past 20 years has been a tireless advocate of what he calls the “Common Homeland” or “Common House” concept of a post-war and post-Cold War Northeast Asian regional community. Here he analyses the policy framework (established by Abe Shinzo, according to Wada) of Japan’s “hostility” towards North Korea and “ignoring” South Korea. He raises questions as to the compatibility of a Northeast Asian community with the recently articulated (US and Japan-promoted and China-encircling) “Indo-Pacific” concept.

CRACKPOT Dr. Fauci: “We May Need to

Listen here, so inept and corrupt. What science is he looking at? The boosters dont work so give more?
This is insane, illogical, nonsensical, absurd; there is no science to support this insanity and the WHO, EU regulators, the Scottish data, UK data, all show the boosters are causing more infection
I was not going to touch this as I felt you all are so smart you would not even bother. But I am engaged by this untermensche, this beelzebub. Why? Because he causes damage. This guy is so inept and reckless, and he is dangerous for we have no idea the long term consequence of these boosters on the immune system; moreover, infections are escalated with boosting so what is this nutball seeing? I say turn him off, he is irrelevant. Turn him off.
His lockdown and school closure polices with Birx killed people and children. US children hung themselves and I argue globally. Yes, we had reports of 8-12 year olds hung in their bed rooms, found by parents, and the media refused to tell you as it would have made Trump look good as he was fighting them to open schools. These people costed lives and Fauci the grim reaper aint over yet, he is killing with these vaccines. He has a second rounds at killing our people. It is time to say no. No more…time to end this pandemic emergency.
Don’t let him play with words, he is not on the fence, this is what he really wants; he is ‘conditioning’ you; all he is doing is soft selling at this stage and the CDC and NIH and those corrupt officials will follow up and CDC with bogus MMWR research.
Did Fauci see this by WHO?
Did he not see this by the EU regulators?
Did this ding dong see these publications?

‘Unseemly’: NPR Refuses to Correct Story After Supreme Court Deems It False

National Public Radio (NPR) is refusing to correct a story that was challenged by a trio of Supreme Court justices, triggering a flood of criticism.
Citing anonymous sources, reporter Nina Totenberg said Chief Justice John Roberts “asked the other justices to mask up,” or wear masks, because Justice Sonia Sotomayor expressed concerns for her safety amid the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
Totenberg said that because Justice Neil Gorsuch refused the request—Gorsuch has not worn a mask on the bench recently—Sotomayor began attending oral arguments from her chambers.
In rare public statements a day later, all three justices responded to the report.

8.If you think the monoclonal antibodies are
safer than the "vaccines," think again by Mark Crispin Miller (23 Jan

Dr. Carrie Madej Issues Shocking Warning About Monoclonal Antibodies
The JD Rucker Show
Rumble — There's an odd disconnect among many who are opposed to the Covid-19 "vaccines." We generally pan the experimental drugs for a wide variety of reasons ranging from the clear health risks and lack of efficacy all the way to many conspiracy theories that the jabs are just tools for depopulation. Some are opposed for religious reasons. Others are opposed out of pure distrust of Big Pharma and their lap dogs in government.
Whatever the reason someone has for being a "vaccine skeptic," there are many who then go and embrace the monoclonal antibodies being offered as a safe and effective treatment for Covid-19. This is where the disconnect comes into play because many of the characteristics that make people skeptical of the vaccines are present in the "safe and effective" monoclonal antibodies.
On the latest episode of The Midnight Sentinel, I was joined by Dr. Carrie Madej. It was actually quite challenging to isolate an individual topic to highlight in this article because she drops multiple bombshells in the hour-long interview. I chose the monoclonal antibodies topic because it may be the most pressing for those who are currently experiencing or may soon be experiencing the rapidly spreading Omicron variant.
"Even in the freedom movement, the 'anti-vaxxers,' people are against getting these injections or genetic modification devices, really, but then I see those same people run to get the monoclonal antibodies and I think, 'Oh, you just have no idea,'" she said.
"First of all, they're brand new, they're experimental, they have very little research on them, okay," she continued. "You're putting something in your body that we don't have research on. However, we know something about it.
"So, these are called a cocktail. So, what that is, they're taking antibodies from three sources. One is just a 'human source.' What does that mean? Is it somebody from the street? I mean, what is that? Do we know if they're purified? We don't know. Okay, that's one.
"Number two, they're using aborted fetal cells. When they say they're not, they're lying. They're using a play on words. They're using the HEK line, the human embryotic kidney cell line. It's 293. What that means is it took 293 ... living babies that were born. So they aborted them alive. They're still living with their heart beating. Then they take them to a cold lab and then they kill them there.
"It took 293 of them to get that cell line. So what they do is they make those lines cancerous so they never stop dividing. They don't want to tell you they're putting cancer cells from an aborted fetus in you so they're going to tell you that it's 'immortalized' — isn't that a nice word. Then they tell you they're cloned. That's what it means. You're taking in an aborted fetus that was killed in a lab and then you had a cancerous cell line from it that's being injected inside of you. Okay, so you've got two sources.
"Now, the third one is from a human and a mouse genome pushed together inside of a mouse, and the mouse spits out a human kind of an antibody but from a mouse. So this is something called a chimera. A chimera is two creatures pushed together and they're going to be spitting out an antibody.
"Now, you have to understand, all the genetic material that a human body takes up, whether we eat it, whether we inhale it, we become injected with it... our bodies are amazing. It takes up genetic material to analyze it, sometimes incorporate it inside our genome. It's called epigenetics."
Even at this point of the interview, I was having concerns about the monoclonal antibodies based on the information I was hearing. But it was during the next portion of Dr. Madej's answer that I became truly shocked.
"There's a problem also with the human-mouse antibody cell line," she continued. "It has a trade name called VelocImmune. So, I knew this, I recognized this from years ago when I had a very big practice here in Georgia. I took different cases, complicated, and of course I got cancer patients. Well, many of them were breast cancer patients that were put on a newer chemotherapy agent immunotherapy.
"And they use this same mouse-human line. It's called VelocImmune, okay. So they took that line and they put this in this chemo-agent. At first, the people looked great. These women were doing wonderfully. 'I feel good. My tumor shrank.'
"And then what happened within one to three years? Sometimes five but usually one to three years there was an allergic reaction, they called it, and a woman would come back loaded with cancer. All the organs looked like they had melted together. I couldn't, nor could the radiologist, tell one organ from another. So, it was a fulminant, terrible reaction. This was a failure.
"They're going to use the same mouse line on people right now. This is horrifying because, although people are only getting one or two of these doses, not many, this can't be good."
No, it definitely cannot be good.
As a journalist, it behooves me to always get a second opinion, so I asked some of my sources to verify Dr. Madej's claims. They checked out with flying colors. In fact, the HEK293T cell line she referred too were also used to develop the Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines.
Stories I read about the cell line on corporate media sites went out of their way to say they definitely did not come from aborted fetal cells even as they admitted that they originated from "donated" fetal cells. It was actually comical seeing the "play on words" Dr. Madej had mentioned in action.
The interview continued to reveal other extremely important information. We even had opportunities to talk about the Bible, a refreshing shift from my normal interviews with other doctors. It was one of my most enjoyable interviews, which is probably why it lasted the full hour.
As I've said many times, my preferred regimen is exercise, healthy eating, sunlight, and Dr. Zelenko's Z-Stack protocol (use promo code "Freedom" for a discount, in case you want to join me in taking the nutraceuticals). While we didn't discuss the nutraceuticals specifically, Dr. Madej was all onboard with everything else we're doing to improve our immunity.
It isn't often I tell people that they NEED to watch a particular interview, but this is clearly one of those rare instances. Dr. Madej's advice may be life-saving for many.

Rwanda, which wants to catapult Africa into world leadership in space, filed an application with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on September 21, 2021 for 327,320 satellites. Its proposal includes 937 orbital planes, distributed in 27 orbital shells (layers of satellites at different altitudes), with 360 satellites in each plane.
Rwanda Space Agency - 327,320 satellites (RWANDA)
TOTAL: 441,449 SATELLITES OPERATING, APPROVED AND PROPOSED (+18 constellations whose numbers are not yet known)
Most of the above list of satellites would orbit at altitudes between about 325 km (200 miles) and 1,100 km (680 miles), except that some of Rwanda's proposed orbits go as low as 280 km (174 miles). The above list does not include applications for satellites in geostationary orbit (GEO), or for LEO constellations of fewer than 5 satellites, or constellations in medium earth orbit (MEO) such as:
Intelsat (at 8600 km) - 216 satellites (LUXEMBOURG)
Mangata Networks (at 6,400 km and 12,000 km) - 791 satellites
O3b (at 8,062 km) - 112 satellites (LUXEMBOURG)
BRIGHTENING THE NIGHT SKY
Scientists have already begun to publish papers analyzing the effect all these satellites will have, not only on astronomy, but on the appearance of the night sky and the visibility of the stars to everyone on earth. An article published online on March 29, 2021 in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society by scientists in Slovakia, Spain and the United States is titled " The proliferation of space objects is a rapidly increasing source of artificial night sky brightness." The scattering of sunlight from all of the objects in space, wrote the authors, is causing a "new skyglow" during the beginning and end of each night that has already brightened the natural night sky by about 10 percent. The authors are concerned that "the additional contribution of the new satellite mega-constellations" would ruin the night sky to a much greater extent.
A group of Canadian astronomers have an article in the January 2022 issue of The Astronomical Journal. "Megaconstellations of thousands to tens of thousands of artificial satellites (satcons) are rapidly being developed and launched," they write. "These satcons will have negative consequences for observational astronomy research, and are poised to drastically interfere with naked-eye stargazing worldwide." They analyzed what the effect on astronomy will be if 65,000 new low-orbit satellites are launched. At 40 degrees latitude (mid-United States; Mediterranean; mid-China; Japan; Buenos Aires; New Zealand), say these authors, more than 1,000 of these satellites will be sunlit and visible in the sky in the summer even at midnight. At higher latitudes (northern U.S.; Canada; most of Europe; Russia), thousands of these satellites will be visible all night long.
Another paper, titled Report on Mega-Constellations to the Government of Canada and the Canadian Space Agency, was commissioned by the Canadian Astronomical Society and submitted to the Canadian government on March 31, 2021. It is a moving document. These astronomers write:
"In ancient times, humans everywhere in the world had access to completely dark skies. In stark contrast, today 80% of North Americans cannot see the Milky Way from where they live because of light pollution. The lack of darkness that many people now experience due to urban light pollution has been linked to many physical and mental health issues, both in humans and wildlife. But there are still pockets of darkness where urban-dwellers can escape the light pollution and experience skies nearly as dark as those seen by our ancestors. Unfortunately, light pollution from satellites will be a global phenomenon -- there will be nowhere left on Earth to experience skies free from bright satellites in orbit.
"Anyone who has ever spent time in a truly dark place staring up at the stars understands the powerful feeling of connection and insignificance this act inspires. Our lives, our worries, even our entire planet seem so inconsequential on these scales -- a feeling that has shaped literature, art, and culture around the globe. Seeing the night sky makes it immediately obvious that we are part of a vast and wondrous universe full of countless stars... Connecting to the sky is part of our humanity, and everyone in the world is in very real danger of losing that...
"With the naked eye, stargazing from a dark-sky location allows you to see about 4,500 stars... Once Starlink approaches 12,000 satellites in orbit, most people in Canada will see more satellites than stars in the sky."
THE WORLD'S LARGEST GARBAGE PIT
And not only do thousands of whole satellites threaten the heavens, but a phenomenal amount of debris orbits the earth as a result of satellites colliding, or exploding, or otherwise being destroyed while in space. During the 64 years that humans have been launching rockets, the protective blankets of the ionosphere and magnetosphere have become the Earth's largest garbage pit.
According to the European Space Agency there are, in orbit around the Earth today, 7,790 intact satellites, of which 4,800 are functioning. Since 1957, there have been more than 630 breakups, explosions, collisions, and other satellite-destroying events. This has resulted in the creation of more than 9,700 tons of space debris. There are, in orbit today:
30,430 debris objects presently being tracked
36,500 objects larger than 10 cm in size
1,000,000 objects from 1 cm to 10 cm in size
330,000,000 objects from 1 mm to 1 cm in size
EFFECTS ON OZONE, EARTHQUAKES, AND THUNDERSTORMS
In a 2020 paper titled " The environmental impact of emissions from space launches: A comprehensive review," Jessica Dallas and her colleagues at the University of New South Wales wrote that "ozone depletion is one of the largest environmental concerns surrounding rocket launches from Earth."
In 2021, there were 146 orbital rocket launches to put 1,800 satellites into space. At that rate, to maintain and continually replace 100,000 low-earth-orbit satellites, which have an average lifespan of five years, would require more than 1,600 rocket launches per year, or more than four every day, forever into the future.
2020 and 2021 witnessed two of the largest Antarctic ozone holes since measurements began in 1979. The 2020 hole was also the longest-lasting on record, and the 2021 hole was only a few days shorter; larger than the continent of Antarctica, it began in late July 2021 and ended on December 28, 2021. Everyone is still blaming chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were banned by the Montreal Protocol in 1978. Nobody is looking at rocket launches, of which there were more in 2020 and 2021 than in any previous year. In addition to the 146 orbital launches in 2021, there were 143 sub-orbital launches of rockets to over 80 kilometers in altitude, for a total of 289 high-altitude launches for the year, or almost one every day.
Earthquakes and Thunderstorms
In 2012, Anatoly Guglielmi and Oleg Zotov reviewed evidence that the global use of electricity has an effect on both seismic activity and thunderstorms. In particular, global electric power consumption spikes every hour on the hour, and so does the average number of earthquakes in the world. In 2020, a group of Italian scientists supplied additional information: solar activity also correlates with earthquakes, and it appears to do so by raising the voltage of the ionosphere. Since this must increase the current flow in the global electric circuit (see chapter 9 of my book, The Invisible Rainbow), it would increase the electric currents that flow through the earth's crust at all times, which would increase the stress on earthquake faults and increase the frequency of earthquakes. The Italian paper's title is " On the correlation between solar activity and large earthquakes worldwide."
Whether 100,000 satellites, although emitting powerful radio waves, would raise the ionospheric voltage, is doubtful. However, the rocket exhaust from every launch emits tons of water vapor, which is more conductive than dry air. The stratosphere is dry and contains very little water, and any water humans put there remains there for years and accumulates. Multiple daily rocket launches, in perpetuity, will fill the stratosphere with water vapor, increase its conductivity, and increase the current flowing in the global electric circuit. The current flowing through the earth's crust will increase, possibly increasing the frequency of earthquakes.
I also speculate that this would increase the frequency and power of thunderstorms worldwide. Were it not for thunderstorms, the ionospheric voltage, which averages 300,000 volts, would discharge in about 15 minutes. About 100 lightning strokes per second, somewhere on Earth, continuously recharge it. Increasing the current flow in the global electric circuit would discharge the ionosphere more quickly, and since it is thunderstorms that recharge the Earth's battery, the frequency and violence of thunderstorms would have to increase.
ALTERATION OF THE EARTH'S ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT
What everyone is completely blind to is the effect of all the radiation from satellites on the ionosphere, and consequently on the life force of every living thing. The relationship of electricity to qi and prana has escaped the notice of modern humans. Atmospheric physicists and Chinese physicians have yet to share their knowledge with one another. And at this time, such a sharing is crucial to the survival of life on Earth.
"The pure Yang forms the heaven, and the turbid Yin forms the earth. The Qi of the earth ascends and turns into clouds, while the Qi of the heaven descends and turns into rain." So the Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine described the global electric circuit 2,400 years ago -- the circuit that is generated by the ionosphere and that flows perpetually between the Yang (positive) heaven and the Yin (negative) earth. The circuit that connects us to earth and sky and that flows through our meridians giving us life and health. A circuit that must not be polluted with frequencies emitted by a hundred thousand satellites, some of whose beams will have an effective power of up to ten million watts. That is sheer insanity, and so far no one is paying attention. No one is even asking whether the satellites have anything to do with the profound and simultaneous decline, planetwide, in the number of insects and birds, and with the pandemic of sleep disorders and fatigue that so many are experiencing. Everyone is so focused on a virus, and on antennas on the ground, that no one is paying attention to the holocaust descending from space.

13.Data out of Scotland show that
"vaccination" makes you SICKER by Mark Crispin Miller (24 Jan
2022 14:59 EST)
Reply to list
January 24, 2022
There's disturbing vaccine data coming from Scotland
The vaccines are proving to be a constantly moving target. Two shots will save us. No, three will. No, better make it four. Heck, let's just keep it open-ended, but you'd better get shots if you want to work, shop, eat out, go to a concert, maybe even board a plane. But what happens to this manic shot regime when we're beginning to get data showing that not only do the shots not prevent people from getting COVID (which is the traditional effect of a vaccine), but they may actually leave people more vulnerable to COVID?
Israel, which was so terrified of having COVID shut it down, thereby leaving it vulnerable to the genocidal organizations and nations around it, embarked upon the most aggressive vaccination program in the world. Now it's the nation with the world's highest per capita COVID rate, per a weekend report:
Israel recorded 69,201 new coronavirus cases
in the past 24 hours, according to an update to the Health Ministry's website on Friday.
There are 427,023 active Covid cases in Israel, making it the country with the highest number of cases per capita, ahead of Slovenia.
The caseload, driven by the highly contagious omicron variant, includes 638 patients in serious condition and 124 on artificial lung ventilation. Of those currently hospitalized in serious condition, 84% are over the age of 60.
The death toll, as of Friday afternoon, was at 8,371.
The positivity rate in Covid tests reached record highs of 20.13 percent.
In total, 2.2 million Israelis were infected since the start of the pandemic. Some 4.5 million received three doses of the vaccine and over 500,000 four doses.
That kind of news report tells me that the vaccines don't work as vaccines. That is, they do nothing to stop people from getting the disease. This runs counter to our 200-year-old understanding of what a vaccine is — namely, the single dose of a substance that triggers the body's natural immune system ensuring that the person will never get the infectious agent that is the vaccine's target (e.g., smallpox, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, etc.).
Indeed, the CDC's Rochelle Walensky has conceded that the vaccines stop people from neither catching nor spreading COVID. The new rap from the CDC is that the shots formerly known as vaccines are now therapeutics. Oh, and there's no end to the number you'll have to take to get that vax pass for working, shopping, traveling, education, etc.
None of that addresses the newest, most concerning information about the vaccines: what if it turns out that they're not even a therapeutic? What if you get more sick, not less sick, from the vaccination? Data out of Scotland suggests that this is a real possibility:
Scottish data shows that the COVID-19 age-standardized case rate is highest among the two-dose vaccinated and lowest among unvaccinated! It further shows this trend of negative efficacy for the double-vaccinated persisting for hospitalizations and deaths. Something is very wrong here, and together with other data points, it raises concerning questions about the negative effect of waning antibodies, constant boosting, and the consequences of a leaky vaccine with narrow-spectrum suboptimal antibodies against an ever-evolving virus.
Daniel Horowitz has a detailed analysis of the data in the above-linked article, and I recommend reading it.

George Orwell's iconic novel 1984, written in 1949 about the horrors of censorship and the threat of authoritarianism, is being censored by a university. The University of Northampton in Orwell's own England has issued a trigger warning on the book, with staff claiming that the book contains "explicit material" and that some student may find the work to be "offensive and unsettling."

15.Climate lockdowns will make just as little sense, and hurt the world as badly, as the lockdowns forced on us in 2020 by Mark Crispin Miller (24 Jan 2022 15:28 EST)

As one who bought the global warming narrative completely, and now perceive not just its weaknesses, but—crucially—the fact that the same predators who engineered the COVID-19 panic are now calling for a "climate change" emergency, I urge all thinking people who have also long since bought the latter story to revisit it with open minds.
climate is the next obvious pivot from covid
el gato malo
expect to hear it aggressively and endlessly.
it’s the same people, the same models, and the same desire to take global control by scaring you with bugbears and getting you to adopt crazy, radical policies that destroy the world while pretending to save it.
these grand plans will enrich the connected oligarchs by mandating the use of their “greentech” which otherwise cannot compete. they will push fraudulent or low functioning “solutions” as panacea and crowd out anything that actually works. (like nuclear)
they will hide the vast costs and environmental catastrophes from mining and processing rare earths and producing and disposing of batteries and polysilicon. if you think cobalt is awful, wait until you see what mining and refining the neodymium and dysprosium in a wind turbine looks like…
“lifecycle energy, lifecycle cost, and resource analysis” will go the way of “natural immunity” and they’ll sell you a $200k solar system that saves you $1200 a year and wears out in 20.
these subsidy truffle-hounds will snuffle out money at a scale that makes pfizer look like a lemonade stand.
and they will seek to derail the global economy while they do it.
and just like covid, they will allow no discussion of whether the problem is, in fact, really a serious problem and eliminate the very concept that learning to live with change and adapting to it might be far cheaper and more effective than trying to tinker with vast global ecosystems that the experts clearly do not understand.
this is the EXACT same playbook you just saw. it was, in fact, the template for the covid playbook because this grift has been ongoing for 20 years already, and it’s a MUCH better con because the “models” take decades to be proven wrong and by then, you’re 2 generations into new ones that you can claim you’re super duper sure are going to get it right this time.

Dr. Domenico Biscardi Found Dead in His Home After Announcement About COVID Vaccines
Thursday, January 20, 2022
The report below references another Italian doctor and lung specialist, Dr. Giuseppe De Donno, who had been successfully using plasma from recovered Covid patients to cure the condition in new patients, and then ‘suicided’ himself.
Dr Domenico Biscardi, geneticist and pharmacologist, has died. He was known for his work on vaccines against Covid. According to initial, as yet unconfirmed, reports, he was found dead at his home. No illness or tumour: the cause of death appears to be ‘a heart attack’.
Translation: Mourning in the world of scientific research, Dr Domenico Biscardi is DEAD,it seems he was found dead at his home. He realized and declared that he had definitive proof that nanodevices were contained in the. He wanted to press charges
17.COMPLETE video of WHO advisor Prof. Christian Perronne's strong statement on the criminality of mandatory "vaccination" by Mark Crispin Miller (24 Jan 2022 15:55 EST)
Reply to list
Strong and clear statement made by Professor Christian Perronne
On January 12, 2022, Prof. Christian Perronne participated in the public debates at the Parliamentary Hearing in Luxemburg. He called to suspend these experiment products that are not vaccines.
We have disregarded the science and infringed our rights.
The biggest scandal of this epidemic is that we have been made to believe these are vaccines. They are not vaccines at all.
Those in the parliament who voted for an experiment product mandate can be personally prosecuted in an international court.
Prof. Perronne’s main arguments:
All decisions lack scientific support. Policymakers who stipulated the vaccine policies have relied on “experts” with significant conflicts of interest and misled the public through the mainstream media (also with major conflicts of interest). While the pharmaceutical industry provides zero scientific references, the world’s “most prestigious” scientific journal, namely The Lancet, has published a fraudulent study to discredit chloroquine.
Alternative, effective treatment is available; therefore, it is illegal for the experiment product to be authorized for emergency use and, worse, imposed as a mandate.
The medical agencies did not evaluate these experimental products properly. There have been defined evaluations for years. It takes about ten years to authorize a standard vaccine and another ten years for the authorized use on pregnant women.
More children die from the experiment product than from COVID.
Christian Perronne, MD, PhD, is Professor of Infectious and Tropical Diseases at the University of Versailles-St Quentin, Paris-Saclay, France.

20.Bio-fascism in full bloom at Ohio State (and countless other universities) by Mark Crispin Miller (24 Jan 2022 17:42 EST)

From a subscriber who works there:
I got a positive COVID test on January 10th from the coerced weekly testing at Ohio State University for those who received an exemption. They gave those results to an internal contact tracing group who presumes to have the power to declare people "quarantined" until they decide when we get released. For students they provide incarceration facilities as well. They also claim to have the authority to keep people off of campus with the power of declaring release by form letter email without informing us of who to show it to at an empty campus. Of course with coerced consent you don't need to inform anyone of what you're going to do, you just do it or pretend to do it. Among the things they also don't tell us is what our penalty will be for going on campus or who is required to identity us and report that we've been on a campus that's as big as a small town and sprawls past the main campus to buildings around the city and satellite campuses around the state. In addition to all this they also gave my medical record to the city of Columbus without my notification nor consent. Who else are they hemorrhaging my personal information to? The whole thing is just weird beyond Orwellian. Who else did they give my medical information too? Is it only my test results?
It also gets even better. I did all my research on how not to get COVID but not on what to do to ... get over it? I guess everyone tests positive on the PCR tests and has a cough for weeks or months after a positive test but we're told, without a viral load test, that our viral load is now low and we are not contagious after... 20? no wait... 14... no wait... 10... no wait... now 5 days? Based on what? SCIENCE!?! Some people have this disease for months. Five days after the fever I developed I was peaking for three days with viral pneumonia symptoms before returning to the cough I've had since December 21 and still have until today, January 24. If we got by the day I got a positive test then I'm 14 days from that, but 20 days from the feaver that came on about January 4th or 5th. I got another positive PCR test last Friday, January 21st from CVS pharmacy. It came back positive. I took another university test today. I am interested in seeing if this makes them glitch. Their COVID policy says I can now stop the mandatory testing for 90 days. At first I thought this was an acknowledgement of natural immunity even thought the mandate for the "vaccine" does not acknowledge natural immunity but if you get an exemption and are forced for weekly testing then they do acknowledge it. Then I realized that what they're actually doing is covering up the FACT that they are putting everyone back to work when they still know, for sure, that they have the virus. The cover story is that PCR is so accurate that it is detecting "dead nucleotides" but they KNOW for sure (and remember that its was considered scandalous) they find stabilized RNA in the "vaccines" holding together for up to two weeks if not after the injections so if that is considered unusual then how is it that we can have unstabilized viral genetic material hanging around for months and causing a PCR test to test positive if its supposed to break down so fast? Either we're still infected or this "vaccine" has RNA that is generating spike proteins for a lot longer or both. And they honestly don't know how long an individual is contagious. All that is based on statistical research I am told exists but no one can ever point me to.
People need to be reminded of the downstream consequences of coerced consent (rape). I am vaccinated but I refuse to participate (as much as possible without quitting my job) to fully comply with coerced consent and instead to stand with people who do not want to be forced to take the failed and dangerous vaccines for any reason including having natural antibodies. Remember everyone, you don't need to explain to ANYONE why you want to use your rights to use them. You just have them. If someone tells you you can earn a right, or need a reason to use it, or that it can be taken away, then it is not a right.

Ghislaine Maxwell Convicted
by Philip Giraldi
There has been a lot of speculation regarding whether convicted sex
offender Ghislaine Maxwell will now "spill the
beans" on the folks in power who exploited those young female offerings
pedophile Jeffrey Epstein made available. No chance of that, I am afraid, as
the trial itself was narrowly construed and limited to certain sex related charges
to avoid any inquiry into the names of the actual recipients of the services
Nor was there any attempt made to determine if Epstein was working on behalf of a foreign intelligence service, most likely Israeli, which has been claimed in a recent book by a former Israeli case officer, who states that top politicians would be photographed and video recorded when they were in bed with the girls. Afterwards, they would be approached and asked to do favors for Israel. It is referred to in the trade as a "honey-trap" operation.
