Grenoble, France


Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,


According to the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report, the world's richest one percent (those with more than $1 million) own 44 percent of the world's wealth, while adults with less than $10,000 in wealth make up 56.6 percent of the world's population hold less than 2 percent of global wealth. And this wealth gap is growing….


Under these conditions, is it surprising that there is widespread skepticism towards capitalist entrepreneurs and their official state facilitators? An increasing number of people seem to believe that society is suffering a double menace – a corona virus of unknown origins, and the entrepreneurial-driven response to this public threat, as opposed to an open scientific discussion that concerns us all.


At no time in our history has thinking clearly and engaging voluntarily in public discussion been more essential for our survival. We cannot count on blind obedience to find our way out of this conundrum. Instead we must look for people we can trust and discuss candidly with them. This free exchange of information is the only way we will be able find a means to protect ourselves from this double danger – the relentless abuse by vested financial interests, and the ill-will of collaboration authorities. Eventually, community leadership should arise “organically” from frequent public meetings and open discussions among ordinary people.


Meanwhile, it has been strongly recommended that we prudently do our own research, understanding that much of the media is now owned by vested corporate interests and cannot be relied on.


For example, the HIV elements that reportedly have been spliced into this laboratory-concocted, and weaponized virus called “covid-19” could guarantee a weakening of the human immune system. Where is the public debate? Nowhere without entrepreneurial control and censorship– today’s “dictatorship of the capitalist class”!



Étienne de La Boétie (1530-1563), author of The Politics of Obedience: Discourse of Voluntary Servitude, has warned us :


one must realize the extent to which the foundation of tyranny lies in the vast networks of corrupted people with an interest in maintaining tyranny.


And a century later, Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677), author of The Ethics, famously wrote:


Reason cannot defeat emotion; an emotion can only be displaced or overcome by a stronger emotion.


He later observed:


 The more you struggle to live, the less you live. Give up the notion that you must be sure of what you are doing. Instead, surrender to what is real within you, for that alone is sure....you are above everything distressing.

. . .

A free man thinks of death least of all things; and his wisdom is a meditation not of death but of life.

-- Baruch Spinoza (The Ethics – Part IV, 1677)



It was Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592), a contemporary of La Boétie, who perhaps best describes intellectual alienation in his essay “On Experience” (taken from his book, Essays, trans. by J.M. Cohen, pp.405-406):


            The great man Aesop saw his master pissing as he walked. ‘What’ he exclaimed, ‘ought we then to shit as we run? Let us manage our time as we can, there will still remain much that is idle or ill-employed. Our mind has probably not enough hours to spare for the performance of its business, if it does not disassociate itself from the body for that brief space that it requires for its needs. People try to get out of themselves and to escape from the man. This is folly; instead of transforming themselves into angels, they turn themselves into beasts; instead of lifting, they degrade themselves. These transcendental humours frighten me, like lofty and inaccessible heights. There is nothing in the life of Socrates that I find so difficult to swallow as his ecstasies and daemonic states, and nothing so human in Plato as that for which they say he was called divine. And of our sciences, those seem to me the most earthly and low that have made the highest flights. And I find nothing so lowly and mortal in the life of Alexander as his fancies about becoming an immoral. Philotas stung him wittily with his retort, when he wrote congratulating him on the oracle of Jupiter Ammon, which had place him among the gods: ‘For your sake, I am very glad about it, but I am sorry for those men who have to live with and obey one who has exceeded the proportions of a man and is discontented with them.’


‘It is because you carry yourself

lower than the gods that you reign.’(Horace, Odes,  III, vi,5)


That delightful inscription with which the Athenians commemorated Pompey’s visit to their city is in agreement with my view:


‘You are a god only in so far as you recognize

yourself to be a man’(excerpt from Plutarch’s Life of Pompey)


     The man who knows how to enjoy his existence as he ought has attained to an absolute perfection, like that of the gods. We seek other conditions because we do not understand the proper use of our own, and go out of ourselves because we do not know what is within us. So it is no good our mounting on stilts, for even on stilts we have to walk with or own legs; and upon the most exalted throne in the world it is still our own bottom that we sit on.


     The finest lives are, in my opinion, those which conform to the common and human model in an orderly way, with no marvels and no extravagances. Now old age stands in need of slightly more tender treatment. Let us commend it to that god who is the protector of health and wisdom – but of a gay and companionable wisdom:


‘Grant me, Apollo, that I may enjoy

with healthy body and sound mind

the goods that have been prepared for me,

and that my old age be honourable

and no stranger to the lyre.’(Horace, Odes, I, xxxi,17)




And returning to Spinoza, on the subject of understanding he writes:


The highest activity a human being can attain is learning for understanding,

because to understand is to be free.


Toward the end of his life, Spinoza began to print at the bottom of his correspondence, beneath the drawing of a rose, Caute! (which is Latin for “Be careful”). This same advice was engraved on his tombstone in Amsterdam, leaving us, at the age of 45, mindful of his advice that we should not jump to conclusions, but instead judiciously reason and follow our inner light.



The present era appears to be an age of poetry, when images and sounds and fragrances are tested against “the smithy of our soul” (to borrow a line from James Joyce). This personal understanding may bring us together in new and unalienated ways.



The 26 + items below should contribute to our understanding of the crises we are now facing and the popular uprisings that challenge this new normal, the so-called “Great Reset,” which is being imposed on us by the entrepreneurial class of corporate capitalists and their lackeys - both the witting and the unwitting.

Fauci's Treacherous Ties to China and Globalists


with Dr. Peter Breggin



Story at-a-glance

·         A report by Dr. Peter Breggin reveals Dr. Anthony Fauci’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and globalists who have profited from the pandemic measures promoted by him as the leader of the U.S. Coronavirus Task Force

·         Fauci has been the major force behind research activities that enabled the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture lethal SARS coronaviruses, which in turn led to the release — whether accidental or not — of SARS-CoV-2 from the Wuhan Institute of Virology

·         In collaboration with the CCP and the World Health Organization, Fauci initially suppressed the truth about the origins and dangers of the pandemic, thereby enabling the spread of the virus from China to the rest of the world

·         Fauci has supported and praised Director-General of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a member of a Marxist-Leninist Ethiopian political party with a corrupt past and terrorist ties who has also been accused of covering up cholera outbreaks in Ethiopia

·         Fauci recently published a paper in which he dismisses the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 was created in and released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, arguing instead for natural mutation. He also uses the pandemic to justify the “green new deal” and the globalist movement known as “the Great Reset”

Buck v. Bell: Inside the SCOTUS Case That Led to Forced Sterilization of 70,000 & Inspired the Nazis


with Adam Cohen



March 2016

As President Obama nominates centrist Judge Merrick Garland to replace late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, we take a look at what’s been described as one of the worst Supreme Court rulings in history. In the 1927 case Buck v. Bell, the court upheld a statute that enabled the state of Virginia to sterilize so-called mental defectives or imbeciles. The person in question was Carrie Buck, a poor, young woman then confined in the Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and the Feebleminded, though she was neither epileptic nor mentally disabled. In the landmark decision, eight judges ruled that the state of Virginia had the right to sterilize her. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. wrote the majority opinion concluding, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.” The decision resulted in 60,000 to 70,000 sterilizations of Americans considered “unfit” to reproduce. At the Nuremberg trials, lawyers for Nazi scientists cited the opinion in defense of their actions. We speak to Adam Cohen, author of “Imbeciles: The Supreme Court, American Eugenics, and the Sterilization of Carrie Buck.”

which makes it easier to laugh off the whole issue.




Enough conspiracy, let’s stick to data and science to end the lockdowns, Part 2


A Procession of Flagellants – Francisco De Goya 1819


by Mark Jeftovic


In part 1 I talked about two COVID-19 / Great Reset themed conspiracy theories that were spreading in Canada and why embracing or amplifying them made lockdown skeptics look like lunatics who could more easily be dismissed.

There is no shortage of science and data to challenge the flawed policies of the governments whose basic playbook has been: lockdown, close economy, print money, ignore data, and double down.

This may be a good time to quickly outline my arc of how my views on the pandemic shifted over time.

My journey from Zombie Apocalypse to lockdown skeptic

I began monitoring the reports of a new virus emerging out of China in January. On January 23rd I emailed a friend advising him to go out the next day and pick up some N95 masks. By the first week of February I was stocking up on food, medical supplies, cash, and weapons while advising friends and family to do the same. I was bracing for a full breakdown of the global supply chain and a collapse of the global economy.

Based on early reported numbers of an R0 around 3.1 with an IFR of 5%, it looked like we’d see doubling times of 15 days. By March all three levels of government, city, province and national were reporting case rates and fatalities daily. I put together a spreadsheet and using those numbers as a model I forecasted Toronto to have 1.7M cases by the end of June. If the IFR really was 5%, or even 3%, it would mean between 51,000 and 136,000 fatalities.

This was terrifying, so as the world started locking down, it seemed to make sense. In fact I was wondering why we were still allowing inbound flights from hotspots like China? There were rumblings from The Clerisy like the New York Times that blocking flights from China would be racist. This was the early innings of the politicization that was to follow.

But then, a curious thing happened. The rate of change in infections and fatalities started coming down, drastically.


By June it was clear to anybody following the data that this was, at least for now, largely in the rearview mirror. I had been in touch with an old friend who now ran IT for several hospitals. In January he was trying to get administrators to take COVID seriously. By May, they had built 4 additional ICU wards across their hospitals and they were sitting empty. Worse, resources were being denied to other medical uses. He was beginning to wonder if maybe this wasn’t going to be as bad as we both originally thought.

Then, over the summer despite the clear slowdown in the severity of the pandemic, the policy response to it intensified. And then it all became political. Questioning the efficacy of continuing the lockdowns became associated with being alt-right. Pro-Trump. Or worse. A Narrative War ensued. If you questioned official policy, you got deplatformed. I documented numerous instances of this over on AxisOfEasy.

Subject: [MCM] MCM attacked by Wikipedia, as The Guardian reports a frightening surge of "dangerous conspiracy theories" about COVID-19



The Guardian reports a new survey finding that "dangerous conspiracy theories" about COVID-19 are surging, virus-like.




This, of course, makes me a major vector: Wikipedia has now sharpened up its entry on myself to make it nastier.


From Steve Bhaerman:


Hi Mark:

I was just referencing your Wikipedia page.  Not even Pravda could have slanted this final paragraph more:

"Miller is a 9/11 truther.[5][6] and is a signatory to the 9/11 Truth Statement.[7] Interviewed by the New York Observer website, Miller said anyone using the conspiracy theory description "in a pejorative sense is a witting or unwitting CIA asset".[8] Following a "truthers" symposium on 9/11, "Justice in Focus", Miller told Vice the official explanations for 9/11 and the assassination of John F. Kennedy "are just as unscientific as the ones that everybody feels comfortable ridiculing", referring to conservatives dismissal of global warming.[9] Miller has shown his students the anti-vaccination film Vaxxed made by the disgraced physician Andrew Wakefield.[5] He has defended the false claims made in Vaxxed of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism, and the assertion that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have been involved in a cover-up.[8]"

You could use it in your class as a classic example of propaganda ... "disgraced physician" (does that mean Bill Gates is "graced"?) ... "defended his false claims".  Conveniently enough, college kids are now so thoroughly brainwashed with PC hogwash that they have no sense of discernment.  I wonder how many would recognize the bias of this "fact-checking" site.

Subject: [MCM] St. John's history prof punished for "bias, discrimination and harassment" after posing a question, in class, about the Columbian Exchange


This sounds familiar. (My department chair used that same phrase, "next steps," in his reassuring answer to the student tweeting that NYU ought to fire me; but my situation isn't as precarious as Prof. Taylor's, as he's a vulnerable adjunct, and I'm tenured.)


There are countless students out there who've been prepped by Social Justice ideology, and primed by certain faculty and university administrators, to go on the attack when something strikes them as "offensive" or "insensitive." This is a tremendous boon to universities as corporations, because it helps to keep the employees (the ones with doctorates) in line. 





NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2020 — “Do the positives outweigh the negatives?”

Teaching history not permitted: St. John’s bulldozes academic freedom, punishes professor for posing question about ‘Columbian Exchange’

NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2020 — “Do the positives outweigh the negatives?”

It’s a standard question asked of history students about a range of topics to encourage critical thinking. But when St. John’s University adjunct professor Richard Taylor posed this question to students during a class about the “Columbian Exchange” — the process of globalization that began in the 15th century — he was accused of racism, removed from his classroom, investigated, and found guilty of “Bias, Discrimination, and Harassment.” All without seeing the evidence against him, and without any opportunity to appeal.


Today, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education wrote to St. John’s, demanding it immediately rescind the investigation of Taylor, drop the bogus charges, and cease any further action in violation of his academic freedom rights.


“Academic freedom presupposes the freedom to ask the uncomfortable questions,” said Adam Goldstein, the author of FIRE’s letter. “History, as a discipline, is particularly concerned with complicating facile narratives and uncovering uncomfortable truths. Humans and their institutions are twisted and complicated, and academics have a duty to complicate our understanding of both. But at St. John’s, it appears some inquiries are forbidden.”



On Sept. 7, Taylor taught the Columbian Exchange to his “Emergence of a Global Society” class. As it has in earlier years, Taylor’s instruction focused on early global trade, including trade in silver and potatoes. As part of the class, he also covered the more pernicious aspects of early trade, such as slavery, the abuse of indigenous populations, and the spreading of disease. On his final slide was a discussion prompt: “Do the positives outweigh the negatives?” A lively discussion ensued. One student said slavery could never be justified. According to Taylor, he clarified that no one is justifying slavery and asked students to consider global trade as a whole, including lives lost to disease and lives saved from famine.


Three days later, the Instagram account “sjuradicals

 posted slides stating that Taylor “forced students to formulate a pros and cons list concerning the topic of slavery” and alleged he “poses a dangerous threat to the education of our student body.” The final item urged readers to direct a form letter to the university in order to “bring meaningful justice to this heinous crime committed by Professor Taylor.” The post also mentions Taylor’s service in the Marine Corps and the New York Police Department. Later that day, history department chair Nerina Rustomji informed Taylor by phone that he was removed from teaching.


On Sept. 15, Taylor met with Director of Equal Opportunity and Compliance Keaton Wong, who informed Taylor there were over 300 complaints of misconduct against him. Taylor found this surprising, as there were only 30 students in the class where the alleged misconduct occurred. Wong informed Taylor that St. John’s intended to treat each of the identical sjuradicals form letters as a stand-alone complaint, and that St. John’s could find him in violation of campus policy without identifying which portion of the policy he violated or what specific conduct violated the policy.


On Oct. 5, Wong informed Taylor that he violated the “University’s Policy against Bias, Discrimination, and Harassment” by teaching his class and noted that “the investigation’s finding is final and non-appealable.” Wong’s letter did not identify which part of the over 2,300-word policy Taylor allegedly violated, and Wong refused to provide him with the evidence used to support the finding.


There was also a conflict of interest: Amidst Taylor’s investigation, Wong was also targeted by sjuradicals, who called for her firing based on their perception that she had not done enough to punish employees in the past.


“The school’s refusal to provide evidence or identify specific policy violations make the university’s actions particularly sinister,” said Goldstein. “St. John’s might want to ask a history professor about other authority systems that would punish you based on vague wrongdoing with no evidence.”


Taylor is set to meet with Interim Dean Gina M. Florio tomorrow to discuss “next steps.”

“St. John’s University is wrong for removing me from teaching,” said Taylor. “By asking students to think about history on both a macro level and a micro level, the idea is that they will look at history from a long-term perspective. The exercise was one in which there is no correct answer, only what the student feels. What I would like to happen is that I am allowed to continue to teach at St. John’s University and given my classes back immediately. How are young adults expected to become critical thinkers if we do not push them to think critically at the college level?”


While St. John’s is a private institution not bound by the First Amendment, it repeatedly promises to protect free expression and academic freedom in its policies, and states that “St. John’s University believes that there is no compromise whatsoever between Catholic identity and freedom of inquiry.”


“Under any basic conception of academic freedom, the choice of whether and how to confront controversial material in a pedagogically-relevant context is left to faculty members, not administrators,” wrote Goldstein in FIRE’s letter. “St. John’s promises this right to its faculty and must not violate those promises. Doing so casts an unacceptable chill over faculty rights and exposes the university to considerable legal liability.”


The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending and sustaining the individual rights of students and faculty members at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, freedom of association, due process, legal equality, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience — the essential qualities of liberty.

For global travel and trade to return to pre-pandemic levels, travelers will need a secure and verifiable way to document their health status as they travel and cross borders.  Countries will need to be able to trust that a traveller’s record of a COVID PCR test or vaccination administered in another country is valid.

Subject: [MCM] 2020 is the third-least deadly year per capita in Swedish history, and September the least deadly month, ever


These are the latest statistics from Sweden, whose numbers always are precise and scrupulous.




Compare that view to the attack on Sweden in "The Scourge of Herd Immunity" (!) from the faux-left Counterpunch, a sturdy organ of the Lockdown Left:




Because, thanks to "the scourge of herd immunity," Sweden has built up a strong defense against this virus, it will continue to do well, while Norway, Denmark and the other countries that locked down will keep seeing some real cases, with bumps in hospitalizations and death. This is something Counterpunch, just like the New York Times et al., does not want us to know, as it is zealously collaborating with the forces waging war on all humanity.


As for Sweden: Despite the recent strengthening of COVID "recommendations" in some local jurisdictions---a measure loudly misreported, by the Daily Mail and others, as backtracking in the face of an (imaginary) resurgence of "the virus"---life in Sweden is idyllic by the standard now prevailing in the West (and elsewhere). 

Here's a message from Mihalis Nevradakis, who recently escaped to Sweden from the cattle-car once known as Greece:


"Obviously in this world anything can change at any time, but as of now, coming to Sweden has been perhaps the best decision of my life. My health has immediately improved, especially my mental health. Other than getting used to a new country, which is happening rather quickly, I am living a normal life. Going to restaurants, cafes, bars, parks, shops, cinemas, all with no interference whatsoever."

The CIA and Chile: Anatomy of an Assassination


Washington, D.C., October 22, 2020 - Fifty years ago today, armed thugs intercepted and mortally wounded the Chilean army commander-in-chief, General René Schneider, as he drove to the Ministry of Defense in Santiago, Chile.  The next day, CIA Director Richard Helms convened his top aides to review the covert coup operations that had led to the attack. “[I]t was agreed that … a maximum effort has been achieved,” and that “the station has done excellent job of guiding Chileans to point today where a military solution is at least an option for them,” stated a SECRET cable of commendation transmitted that day to the CIA station in Chile. “COS [Chief of Station] … and Station [deleted] are commended for accomplishing this under extremely difficult and delicate circumstances.” 

Marking the 50th anniversary of the CIA-supported attack on General Schneider, the National Security Archive today is posting a collection of previously declassified records to commemorate what the U.S. State Department, unwitting of the CIA’s role at the time, characterized as “a stain on the pages of contemporary history.” The documents, according to Peter Kornbluh, who directs the Archive’s Chile Documentation Project and is author of The Pinochet File, record “a sinister, cynical and shocking act of political terrorism.” The records, he said, “provide a paper trail of evidence to the office door of former National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger who oversaw the CIA’s coup plotting in Chile.” 

The Archive has also posted a CBS ‘60 Minutes’ segment, “Schneider vs. Kissinger,” that drew on the declassified documents to report on a “wrongful death” lawsuit filed in September 2001 by the Schneider family against Henry Kissinger for his role in the assassination. The ’60 Minutes’ broadcast aired on September 9, 2001, and has not been publicly accessible since then. In preparation for the 50thanniversary of the Schneider assassination, CBS News graciously posted the broadcast as a “60 Minutes Rewind” on October 21, 2020.

From Michael Green:

It is difficult to overpraise the second gem in a row from Mercola, organizing in neat linear form what is happening to us and how.  It’s much the stuff that Corbett did in his “Great Reset” video last week, but it is in print, readable, and clearly organized.  I only wish that he hadn’t ended with Lord Sumption’s quote that states that the impetus for decisive action, and hence the totalitarian response, comes from the people; this is entirely contrary to the thrust of everything that precedes it in this and yesterday’s piece.  The difficulty, as ever, is what I stated in my final essay: we are faced with the obstacle of telling an eagerly brainwashed people a deep truth essential to their future and well-being yet so inimical to their world-view and sensibility that we are deemed mad or speaking in tongues.   So the debates about masks, vaccine safety-efficacy, schoolchildren infection rates/mortality, when to reopen businesses, etc. keeps spinning away from the central kaleidoscopic horror in which they are glistening distractions embedded in a false phantasmagoria.

Fear Fear Secures Obedience in COVID-19 War

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked



·  October 24, 2020

Story at-a-glance

·  Scientists, lawyers, medical professionals and academics are increasingly recognizing that the deliberate fear-mongering that has kept the COVID-19 pandemic alive threatens to replace democracy with fascist totalitarian models of government

·  Over the past several years, the threat of bioterrorism and viruses in general have been highlighted as one of the most serious threats to mankind, yet we continue to fund dangerous gain-of-function research — the very source and basis of this threat

·  The data tell us SARS-CoV-2 is not the existential threat it’s been made out to be. The big picture emerging seems to point in one direction, and that is the implementation of a long-standing plan to usher in and permanently establish a technocratic society

·  In a few short months, we’ve been dramatically shifted from a state of freedom to a state of totalitarianism, and the way that was done was through social engineering, which involves psychological manipulation, two tools of which are fear-based propaganda and censorship

·  It appears mobile phone carriers may already be providing data to state governments for quarantines and contact tracing purposes without your knowledge or consent, even though we’ve been told track and trace apps would be voluntary.  …

Israël cesse de délivrer des visas aux employés de l’agence des droits de l’homme de l’ONU


Alors qu’Israël avait annoncé en février la suspension de ses relations avec le Haut-Commissariat des Nations unies aux droits de l’homme, les demandes de nouveaux visas restent sans réponse et les passeports envoyés pour renouvellement des visas reviennent vierges.


Selon les informations recueillies par Middle East Eye, Israël a cessé de délivrer des visas aux employés du Haut-Commissariat des Nations unies aux droits de l’homme (HCDH), contraignant les cadres de l’agence à partir.


En février, Israël avait annoncé la suspension de ses relations avec l’agence des droits de l’homme de l’ONU après la publication d’une liste de plus d’une centaine d’entreprises opérant dans les colonies israéliennes en Cisjordanie.


Depuis le mois de juin, toutes les demandes de nouveaux visas restent sans réponse et les passeports envoyés pour renouvellement reviennent vierges.


Neuf membres étrangers sur les douze de l’organisation ont déjà quitté Israël et les territoires palestiniens par crainte de se trouver en situation d’illégalité, a confirmé le HCDH. Parmi eux, le directeur James Heenan.


Les trois autres verront leurs visas expirer dans les mois à venir. Par ailleurs, trois employés qui devaient arriver en Israël pour commencer à travailler n’ont pas été en mesure de le faire.


Le personnel israélien et palestinien continue toutefois à travailler et les bureaux de l’organisation ne sont pas fermés.


« L’absence de personnel international dans les territoires occupés est une situation particulièrement irrégulière et aura un impact négatif sur notre capacité à exercer notre mandat », affirme un porte-parole du HCDH à MEE.


« Nous continuons à espérer que cette situation sera bientôt résolue et nous coopérons activement avec les différentes parties concernées pour y mettre un terme. »


Tous les accès au territoire palestinien sont contrôlés par Israël et ce dernier est accusé, ces dernières années, de restreindre l’accès aux humanitaires.


L’an dernier, Israël a expulsé le directeur de Human Rights Watch (HRW) Omar Shakir, après l’avoir accusé de soutenir les appels au boycott, ce qu’il nie.


Toujours l’année dernière, le gouvernement israélien a refusé de renouveler le mandat d’une force internationale qui surveillait les atteintes aux droits de l’homme dans la ville de Hébron en Cisjordanie occupée.


Pour Omar Shakir, « l’expulsion des organes de surveillance des droits de l’homme de l’ONU constitue une nouvelle tentative du gouvernement israélien d’entraver la documentation de sa répression systématique des Palestiniens ».


« Refuser des visas afin de sanctionner les critiques est désormais un instrument central de l’offensive israélienne sur les mouvements des droits de l’homme », explique-t-il à MEE.


Une liste de 112 sociétés


Le HCDH rédige régulièrement des rapports mettant en exergue les atteintes israéliennes aux droits de l’homme à Jérusalem-Est occupée, en Cisjordanie et dans la bande de Gaza assiégée.


En février, l’agence a publié une liste de 112 sociétés travaillant dans les colonies israéliennes, lesquelles sont illégales au regard du droit international. Ce rapport, qui a pointé du doigt TripAdvisor, Airbnb et le fabricant de camions et d’excavatrices JCB, entre autres, a été salué par les Palestiniens mais a suscité la colère des Israéliens.


En représailles, le ministre israélien des Affaires étrangères de l’époque Israel Katz a suspendu les liens avec l’organisation, ce qu’il avait salué comme « une mesure dure et exceptionnelle ». Les implications pratiques de cette mesure n’étaient alors pas claires.


Les employés de l’ONU à travers le monde sont supposés avoir un accès automatique aux visas pour remplir leur mission.


Épaulé par le fervent soutien du président américain Donald Trump, Israël a connu une série de succès diplomatiques dans le monde ces dernières années, notamment les accords de paix signés dernièrement avec les Émirats arabes unis et Bahreïn.


Pour Martin Konečný, le directeur du think-tank European Middle East Project, les restrictions s’appliquant au HCDH s’inscrivent dans une tendance plus globale.


« Avec le soutien des États-Unis, Israël a enchaîné les victoires sur la scène internationale (tels que les accords avec les Émirats arabes unis et Bahreïn). L’examen des droits de l’homme est une sorte de nuisance qui gâte ce triomphe », déclare-t-il.


« Je pense qu’Israël se sent enhardi, ne serait-ce que par le soutien de l’administration Trump, pour agir contre les organisations qui s’intéressent aux droits de l’homme. »


Il constate que, si les gouvernements européens critiquent les politiques israéliennes à cet égard, peu de mesures ont été prises pour contraindre Israël à s’amender.


Un porte-parole du ministère des Affaires étrangères israélien a affirmé n’avoir rien à ajouter aux communiqués de février suspendant les relations.

Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city - or should I say, "our city". I don't own anything. I don't own a car. I don't own a house. I don't own any appliances or any clothes.

It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service. We have access to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we need in our daily lives. One by one all these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us to own much.

First communication became digitized and free to everyone. Then, when clean energy became free, things started to move quickly. Transportation dropped dramatically in price. It made no sense for us to own cars anymore, because we could call a driverless vehicle or a flying car for longer journeys within minutes. We started transporting ourselves in a much more organized and coordinated way when public transport became easier, quicker and more convenient than the car. Now I can hardly believe that we accepted congestion and traffic jams, not to mention the air pollution from combustion engines. What were we thinking?



Sometimes I use my bike when I go to see some of my friends. I enjoy the exercise and the ride. It kind of gets the soul to come along on the journey. Funny how some things seem never to lose their excitement: walking, biking, cooking, drawing and growing plants. It makes perfect sense and reminds us of how our culture emerged out of a close relationship with nature.

"Environmental problems seem far away"

In our city we don't pay any rent, because someone else is using our free space whenever we do not need it. My living room is used for business meetings when I am not there.

Once in awhile, I will choose to cook for myself. It is easy - the necessary kitchen equipment is delivered at my door within minutes. Since transport became free, we stopped having all those things stuffed into our home. Why keep a pasta-maker and a crepe cooker crammed into our cupboards? We can just order them when we need them.

Subject: [MCM] Dr. Zeke Emanuel, Joe Biden's COVID-19 advisor, sees Italy's failed lockdown as a model for the USA

Dr. Emanuel's "Why I Hope to Die at 75," his eugenicist protest against
"living too long," in the October, 2014 Atlantic (one of Bill/Melinda Gates'
"strategic media partners"):


With that attitude, the good doctor was probably quite pleased by the mass 
disposal of all those past-their-sell-date, Social-Security-squandering 
bipeds finished off in nursing homes throughout the US, UK, Canada and
Sweden at the height of the coronavirus crisis. (And he probably was not
heartbroken by the die-off of the very old in northern Italy.) 

The team that picked Joe Biden sure knows how to pick 'em!



From Tom Woods:

Remember that creep Dr. Zeke Emanuel?

I'll refresh your memory:

"We cannot return to normal until there's a vaccine. Conferences, concerts, sporting events, religious services, dinner in a restaurant, none of that will resume until we find a vaccine, a treatment, or a cure....

"We need to prepare ourselves for this to last 18 months or so and for the toll that it will take. We need to develop a long-term solution based on those facts. It has to account for what we are losing while this fight goes on, things like schooling and income and contact with our friends and extended family."

He wanted you to go for 18 months without "schooling and income and contact with [your] friends and extended family."

Dr. Emanuel is advising Joe Biden on the virus.

If you're curious about what he would advise Joe to do, here's what he said back when he thought Italy had "crushed the curve" (with thanks to Alex Berenson):

"One of the important things for all your readers to look at is Italy.

"Italy did a nationwide lockdown.... We’ve never gotten as low as Italy is today.... We needed that kind of process nationwide, and we did not have that.

"So that’s one thing: a nationwide lockdown that lasts 8 weeks until we have a number of new cases in the 2 to 3 per 100,000 level."

He said this in September.

Italy just reported 217 deaths from the virus yesterday, which is the equivalent of 1200 deaths in the U.S.

Gee, Dr. Emanuel, it looks like locking people in their houses only delays the inevitable -- as everyone at the time tried to tell you.

Meanwhile, let's check in with Sweden, which never locked down and where almost nobody wears masks.

Here's Sweden versus Illinois, which is going into another lockdown:

Here's Sweden against several other European countries:

And here's Sweden against still other countries:

Well, how about that!

So lockdowns don't even work -- except to suck the joy out of life; decimate people's savings; ruin their livelihoods; delay necessary health procedures; disrupt supply chains, thereby threatening famine; cause 2 million excess deaths from TB, HIV, and malaria; and lead to depression and despair.

This should be excruciatingly obvious by now, and yet we have a shocking number of people who think this is what needs to be done.

More of what failed the first time!

A wildly disproportionate percentage of the world's remaining normal people can be found inside the Tom Woods Show Elite, with me. For the sake of remaining sane in a world designed to make you crazy, join me:
