Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,

 

The radical psychoanalyst R.D. Laing had an eclectic worldview, which situated social class struggle in the realm of individual perception and not objective political economy. His brand of idealism, ebbing frequently into mysticism, was sometimes used by war resisters as a heuristic device to test the political will of the ruling class during the anti-Vietnam War period in the U.S. Today, Laing has much to teach us about interpersonal perceptions and the politics of experience, but the understanding of contradictions embedded in social class relationships – both objective and subjective – has evolved since the 1960s, and today we are faced with the Schopenhaueresque worldview of will and idea.

The growing morbidity around germ warfare and the 4-profit ruling-class appraoch to the "cure", spured me recently to dig into old philosophical texts from my undergraduate liberal arts studies decades ago, and I came across an old coffee-stained paperback I once used, Outline-History of Philosophy (1968). In it I found an introductory description of the classic work by Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), The World as Will and Idea (1818), and his pessimism seems to match the metaphysics of today’s neoliberalism (always keeping in mind the Marxian tenet: "The ruling ideas of any era are nothing more than the dominant ideas of the ruling class." To this 19th-century dictum we might add the following update : “no matter how incoherent and self-destructive these ruling-class ideas might be.”

In Schopenhauer's idealist philospophy, there can be no object without a subject, and the "subject" he identifies as will.

The idea represents the sentient experience, a phenomenal world known to us through our sense experiences which simply mirror the will; while the will constitutes ultimate reality, the essence of phenomena, (i.e. the ontologically real). The will, which is knowable to us through immediate awareness (intuition), is perfectly free in its action, but the phenomenal world of the idea is not free, but is governed by necessity and follows a course prescribed by ‘four principles of sufficient reason’: namely (1)a prioi intuitions for cause; (2)the sense of logical explanation; (3)the assumed property of occupying space and time; and (4)a dynamic motive of power behind every act. In contrast to all ideas, which are thus controlled by laws, the will acts only in complete freedom.  Consequently, the will cannot be rationally explained, nor does it respond to reason; it is motivated solely by its own caprice. Furthermore, the will is permanent, whereas phenomena are merely the transitory, overt manifestations of the will.(taken from Outline-History of Philosophy (1968), William S. Sahakian, pp.204-211)


Schopenhauer was a contemporary of Georg Hegel (1770-1831), and they taught at the same time at The University of Berlin, where Hegel's "rational opitmism" was immensely popular.  

Schopenhauer went on to speculate as to whether “death serves as a diversion from life, or is life a diversion from death?”

 

 

The 24 + items below present phenomena that no sentient person can ignore. The current events of our day and their representation in the Corporate Media affect our moods, our sentiments and our entire behavior. Traditionally, active critical thinking and access to alternative views serve to protect us from mental numbness and psychological abuse that monopoly capitalism so generously dishes out to its consumers.

 

 

We can only hope that these assorted articles and essays taken from the Social Media will free ceimsa readers from blindly following the blind in their money-making schemes for private enrichment, at great social cost.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Francis Feeley

YES! Kentucky judge strikes down ALL of Gov. Bashears' state of emergency actions—based on expert testimony that "masks are worthless" by Mark Crispin Miller (08 Jun 2021 20:40 EDT)

This is balm to the soul (for those who have one).

Kentucky Judge Invalidates All of Governor Bashear’s State of Emergency Actions

Posted on June 8, 2021

Today my colleague from Kentucky, Chris Wiest, received an awesome ruling from the Circuit Court of Boone County declaring that all of Governor Andy Bashear’s emergency orders and actions are unconstitutional and void. The ruling was in the state-court challenge to the governor’s emergency powers executive orders, filed by Wiest on behalf of Beans Cafe’ & Bakery.

Dr. Stephen Petty, an actual expert in masks, testified at the trial about their uselessness under the circumstances in which they’re being idolized. Here’s an excerpt from the order pertaining to Dr. Petty. For those bureaucrats and social media tyrants who would censor this, this is from an actual court order issued today. Not that you care:

Stephen E. Petty, P.E., CIH, testified as an expert and was accepted as such without objection. Mr. Petty has served as an expert witness in approximately 400 cases relating to toxic or infectious exposure, personal protective equipment (“PPE”), and as a warning expert. He also served as an epidemiology expert for the plaintiffs in the Monsanto “Roundup” cases, and for those in the Dupont C8 litigation. In connection with his service as an expert, he was deposed nearly 100 times and has provided court testimony in approximately 20 trials. Mr. Petty holds nine U.S. patents, has written a book comprising nearly 1,000 pages on forensics engineering, is a certified industrial hygienist, and a recognized expert with the Occupational Safety and Health Agency. Mr. Petty helped write the rules on risk assessment for the State of Ohio and has trained Ohio’s risk assessors.

"I can't feel God anymore": Do COVID-19 "vaccines" cut our link to the divine? by Mark Crispin Miller (08 Jun 2021 22:28 EDT)
Reply to list

There's a video floating around out there, which some people think shows Bill Gates doing a PowerPoint presentation on a new "vaccine" for immunizing people against religious fanaticism. That video has been much debunked, which isn't hard to do, since, whoever that guy is, he's obviously not Bill Gates.

But the technocratic itch to "cure" us of the impulse to connect with any higher power—or any power higher than 5G—so that we'll just comply as ordered by the Corporation, like efficient drones; that impatient itch to kill the necessary sense that, while worldly laws say one thing, those laid down by the gods, or God, say something else: that Satanic itch can't be debunked, because it's clearly what Big Tech is all about. 

What's the antidote for those who feel they've somehow lost their souls by getting "vaccinated"? And what punishment is grave enough for those who would come up with such a project?

MCM   

From Lila York:

One of the Pfizer volunteer test subjects said this after getting the shots back in December:

"I can't feel God anymore." 

I never forgot that. 

The inventor of the Moderna vaccine brags that they are reprogramming the immune system. like a computer. What Martin is saying is that they are reprogramming humans to no longer be human, but to only connect to 5G EMF waves. to take instruction. 

It is the most horrifying thing I have read.

David Martin

The jabs screw up the antenna of our chromosomes that connect us to universal wisdom. They rob our humanity.


Well it turns out, that you do not have DNA. You have chromosomes. Nature made chromosomes.


I am going to go out on a limb here for you. Chromosomes, being paramagnetic, wound heli-coils of conductive material, are quite possibly antenna. They’re quite possibly not chemistry at all.

And it turns out I’ve proven that in the lab.

If you wonder why the magnetic experiment that you’re going to hear about from Dr. Carrie is so damn interesting, it’s NOT because of DNA, it’s NOT because of RNA, it’s because they are putting an antenna into your body to screw up the transmissions of all the wisdom of the cosmos so that you are detached from being human.

And if you knew what it really was, it is a wound heliocol antenna, it was an antenna that was made so that we stayed in touch with our creation and creator. That’s what it was.

And in 1953 we defiled it. And we have spent billions of dollars describing life through untied strings of a tapestry, and then mysteriously come to the conclusion that 95% of DNA is just junk DNA.

“Virus”

with Chris Hedges and Nina Burleigh

(28:07)

 

On the show this week, Chris Hedges discuss the Coronavirus with investigative journalist and author, Nina Burleigh. "There are many ways to begin to tell the story of why more Americans died of Covid-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, than in any other nation on earth," Nina Burleigh writes in her new book Virus: Vaccinations, the CDC and the Hijacking of America's Response to the Pandemic. "We could start at the Washington, DC, hospital with doctors amputating the lower leg of the White House chief of security, a man who caught Covid in Donald Trump's mask-free domain. Or we could talk to the families of forty-six veterans who died within days of each other in a Veterans Administration nursing home in Alabama. Or we could listen in on a therapy session with some of the New York City medics struggling with PTSD after helplessly watching some of tens of thousands of people die in a matter of weeks. Since the story involves mass death, religious zealots, and the worst case of government malpractice in the history of the United States, I'll chose the biblical opening: In the beginning, there was the State. And the ideologues said, Let it Be Smashed. And so it was smashed."

Sign the petition to #SaveSheikhJarrah

 

Last Sunday, Israel arrested sibling activists Muna and Mohammed El-Kurd for “disturbing the peace.” In other words, Israel didn’t like their peaceful protesting and awareness-raising around Israel’s attempts to forcibly remove Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East JerusalemMuna has an Instagram following of over 1.2 million and Mohammed has a Twitter following of over 203 thousand

Contact the State Department now and tell them to demand Israel stop the forced evictions in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem. 

Prior to Israel’s recent 11-day massacre in Gaza, thanks to massive demonstrations and international solidarity, the evictions of the El-Kurd and other families from Sheik Jarrah were temporarily halted. But, now that attention has waned, Israel is at it again. On Monday, Israeli attorney general, Avichai Mendelblit, informed the Supreme Court that he would not be intervening in the Sheikh Jarrah eviction cases, clearing the way for Israel’s Supreme Court to issue its ruling in the coming days or weeks. There is little chance the Supreme Court — one of many courts of injustice for Palestinians — won’t uphold the lower court’s ruling to evict the families from their homes. 

Here’s what Israeli injustice looks like: Before the Nakba (the 1948 ethnic cleansing of over 750,000 Palestinians to establish the state of Israel), two Jewish trusts purchased a plot of land in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem. During the ethnic cleansing that established Israel, The Jewish families living there left for West Jerusalem as that section of the city became part of the new state of Israel and East Jerusalem came under Jordanian and UN control. In 1956, Jordan and the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees resettled 28 Palestinian families who had been forced out of their homes inside the new state of Israel into the Sheik Jarrah. In exchange for giving up their rightful refugee status, the 28 families were to receive ownership of the Sheikh Jarrah properties, but surprise, surprise, they never got the deeds and now Israel claims that the properties belonged to the Jewish trusts who later sold them to Nahalat Shimon, a real-estate company registered in the US state of Delaware, whose mission is to remove Palestinians from East Jerusalem and replace them with Jews. 

While Israel is using prior Jewish land ownership to remove Palestinians from their homes, they recognize no Palestinian right to return to the homes and lands that were stolen from them in 1948. It’s not a real estate dispute. It’s naked settler-colonial ethnic cleansing supported by the US.

Act now! Sign our petition to Secretary Blinken telling him #SaveSheikhJarrah and ask for an investigation of the Nahalat Shimon company which is right now receiving public subsidies through Delaware’s lax corporate tax laws. 

On May 10, 2021, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said, “We are also deeply concerned about the potential eviction of Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan neighborhoods of Jerusalem, many of whom have lived in their homes for generations.” This is a decent start, but it is far from enough. The US must ensure that its assistance to Israel does not fund the Sheikh Jarrah evictions!  

Meet some of the Sheikh Jarrah families:

The Skafi family lived in the West Jerusalem Baka neighborhood for many many generations before they were forcibly removed in 1948. In 1956, they were resettled in Sheikh Jarrah. Over the past few weeks, the young Skafi children have been refusing to attend school. “They’re afraid that if they leave, they won’t have a home to come back to,” said their 71-year-old grandfather. 


Mohammed Sabbagh was only one year old in 1948 when his family was forced out of Jaffa, the southern and oldest part of what is currently Tel Aviv-Yafo, and his family home was turned into a synagogue. Before the Jordanian government brought his parents and him to settle in Sheikh Jarrah, the family had spent a decade wandering around the region — Egypt, Gaza, Hebron — trying to survive. 72-year-old Mohammed says that if his family is forced out of their home, “we’ll set up camp in the streets, right in front of our homes.”   


The El-Kurd family was forced from their home in Haifa in 1948 and eventually ended up in Sheikh Jarrah where Muna and her twin brother Mohammed were born. In 2009, Jewish Israeli settlers took over half of the El-Kurd home, claiming that they had owned the land before 1948. Israeli courts allowed this and for the past 12 years, the US-registered settler real estate company Nahalat Shimon has been trying to force the family out of the other half of the house. 

As Israeli forces took Muna El-Kurd away in handcuffs last Sunday, her father spoke out: “Israel is fighting my daughter because she tells the story of Sheikh Jarrah. She does not behave violently toward anyone. The goal is to keep her quiet and to quiet the voices of protest in the neighborhood.” 

The US gives Israel $3.8 billion a year (possibly $4.8 billion for 2021) and is home to the Nahalat Shimon settler real estate company. So, the US has lots of leverage to tell Israel to stop the Sheik Jarrah evictions, as well as the evictions they are now trying to carry out in other East Jerusalem neighborhoods. Sign the petition now!

 « La Palestine n'a pas disparu », écrivait Edward Said en 1998 au retour

Une domination israélienne toujours plus brutale

Guerres sans fin contre les Palestiniens

  par Alain Gresh  - Juin 2021

 

Après onze jours de conflit qui ont fait 230 morts palestiniens et 12

morts israéliens, Israël et le Hamas ont conclu un cessez-le-feu sans

conditions préalables. L’arrêt des hostilités n’a pas apaisé les

tensions à Jérusalem-Est et en Cisjordanie, pas plus qu’il ne règle les

questions de fond. À défaut de disposer d’un État viable et de ne plus

subir la colonisation, les Palestiniens continueront de se battre pour

leurs droits.

Proche-Orient, la déchirure

Al Qods, ciment du monde arabe

par Mohamed Sid-Ahmed

 

La visite provocante, le 28 septembre 2000, de M. Ariel Sharon, flanqué

de plus de mille policiers, sur l’esplanade du Haram al-Sharif, à

Jérusalem, a déclenché une nouvelle intifada palestinienne, à laquelle

aucune partie du monde arabe, voire du monde musulman, n’est demeurée

indifférente. Partout, d’immenses manifestations de solidarité ont

déferlé dans les capitales, y compris au Koweït et dans les différents

pays du Golfe.

 

Jamais on n’avait entendu de réactions aussi fermes émanant des

dirigeants arabes, même les plus modérés. Ainsi, le prince héritier

Abdallah, dirigeant de fait de l’Arabie saoudite, a déclaré : « Les

nations arabes et islamiques, que représente la Palestine résistante, se

retrouvent en ces moments dramatiques toutes en elle. Le moment est venu

pour la partie israélienne, ainsi que pour tous ceux que le processus de

paix concerne, de comprendre ce que la mosquée al-Aqsa signifie pour

nous, Arabes et musulmans, tant du point de vue historique que sur les

plans identitaire et idéologique. On ne peut parler de compromis sur ce

point. »

 

Après le refus de M. Ehoud Barak de prendre part, le 5 octobre, à un

sommet quadripartite à Charm el-Cheikh, avec MM. William Clinton, Yasser

Arafat et Hosni Moubarak, le président égyptien a rejeté toute idée de

nouveau sommet tant que le premier ministre israélien n’aurait pas

répondu aux conditions suivantes : retrait des troupes israéliennes des

nouvelles positions qu’elles avaient occupées en Cisjordanie et à Gaza ;

arrêt des ultimatums israéliens ; constitution d’une commission

internationale d’enquête ; assurance que des provocations comme la

visite de M. Sharon sur l’esplanade ne se répéteraient plus ; recherche

d’une solution du problème de Jérusalem dans le cadre de la légalité

internationale.

 

Le raïs n’accepta d’assouplir sa position qu’avec l’exacerbation de la

tension, à la suite des attaques israéliennes contre les postes de

police palestiniens, le 12 octobre. Ces actions menaçaient de dégénérer

en hostilités ouvertes, et le numéro un égyptien, renonçant alors aux

clauses précédemment formulées, accepta d’être l’hôte d’un nouvelle

réunion internationale à Charm elCheikh, le 16 et 17 octobre, avant le

sommet arabe du Caire qui s’est tenu les 21 et 22 octobre.

 

Ce dernier marque un tournant. Il y a dix ans, le 2 août 1990, l’Irak

envahissait le Koweït, déclenchant un tremblement de terre qui allait

faire exploser le monde arabe. Une réunion de ses dirigeants, convoquée

à la hâte, se révélait incapable de dégager une position unifiée. Le

monde arabe se coupa en deux, une partie des Etats prenant position pour

le Koweït, la victime, et les autres pour l’Irak. Le secrétaire d’Etat

américain de l’époque, M. James Baker, profita de cette fracture sans

précédent pour convaincre les Etats du Golfe que leur pire ennemi

n’était pas Israël, mais un autre Etat arabe. C’est cette mutation qui

permit la mise en route, après la victoire alliée de 1991 contre le

président Saddam Hussein, de la conférence de Madrid (octobre 1991) et

du « processus de paix ».

 

La majorité des Etats arabes espéraient ainsi « neutraliser » Israël et

se concentrer contre celui que les Etats-Unis désignaient comme leur

pire ennemi : le président Saddam Hussein. Nombre d’entre eux ont

pourtant fini par trouver que le maintien indéfini des sanctions contre

l’Irak, à la demande des Etats-Unis et de la Grande-Bretagne,

représentait une punition disproportionnée, qui frappait avant tout des

innocents. Les souffrances du peuple irakien devinrent un sujet de

préoccupation internationale. L’isolement de Washington et de Londres au

sein même du Conseil de sécurité s’accrut. Il fut de plus en plus

difficile de convaincre l’opinion internationale que les dures mesures

imposées à l’Irak étaient conformes à la « légalité interna tionale ».

 

Plusieurs Etats arabes, y compris parmi ceux du Golfe, défièrent alors

le blocus — et, par là même, le présupposé selon lequel l’Irak était

leur pire ennemi — en envoyant à Bagdad des avions transportant du

matériel médical et des dons. Au même moment, la brutale répression des

Palestiniens par les autorités d’occupation israéliennes mit en lumière

l’absurdité des arguments qui cherchaient à justifier l’impossibilité de

la tenue d’un sommet par l’antagonisme à l’égard d’un autre pays arabe.

 

Désormais, c’est Jérusalem — et non plus l’Irak — qui constitue le point

central déterminant la politique arabe. Contrairement à d’autres

dimensions de la question palestinienne, Jérusalem a des allures de

champ de mines. Elle touche aux sensibilités religieuses et dépasse les

prérogatives de l’Autorité palestinienne. La situation s’est tellement

envenimée que rien d’autre n’est possible qu’une solution définitive du

problème.

 

Jusque-là, on avait pu repousser les échéances, en attendant que les

autres points en négociation soient résolus. Mais la provocation de M.

Sharon a changé la dynamique. La spirale de la violence suscitée par sa

visite a montré qu’un accord définitif sur le statut de la ville sainte

conditionnait tout règlement final du conflit israélo-arabe.

 

Jusqu’au sommet de Camp David, en juillet 2000, les parties avaient

évité ce traquenard. Même lors du premier sommet de Camp David

(septembre 1977) entre M. James Carter, le président égyptien Anouar el

Sadate et le premier ministre israélien Menahem Begin, les protagonistes

avaient accepté de reporter le différend sur Jérusalem à un stade

ultérieur. Dans deux lettres séparées adressées au président américain,

Sadate et Begin exprimèrent leur position respective, et ces textes

devinrent une partie intégrante des accords de Camp David.

 

Israël, on s’en souvient, a occupé la partie orientale de Jérusalem en

juin 1967. Il a étendu les frontières de la municipalité, en en

multipliant par sept la superficie. Il a poursuivi sa campagne de

judaïsation de Jérusalem-Est, en y détruisant des quartiers entiers, en

en expulsant progressivement la population arabe et en multipliant les

colonies juives.

 

En 1980, le Parlement israélien adopta une loi confirmant l’annexion de

la partie orientale de Jérusalem et déclarant « Jérusalem unifiée

capitale éternelle de l’Etat ». C’était, bien sûr, inacceptable pour les

Arabes, qui ne peuvent admettre une solution définitive donnant à Israël

la souveraineté sur les lieux saints musulmans de la ville. D’ailleurs,

aucun Etat, pas même les Etats-Unis, n’accepte l’idée d’une souveraineté

israélienne totale sur Jérusalem. Bien que, durant les campagnes

présidentielles, les candidats américains s’engagent régulièrement à

transférer l’ambassade de leur pays à Jérusalem, aucun n’a respecté sa

promesse après sa victoire : une telle décision serait accueillie

positivement par le puissant lobby juif, mais elle détériorerait de

manière irréversible les relations américano-arabes.

 

Or, pour la première fois, à Camp David II, les négociateurs ont abordé

la question de Jérusalem, de manière sobre, sans recourir aux clichés

rebattus. Pour la première fois aussi, le premier ministre israélien ne

s’abrita pas derrière les slogans traditionnels — « Jérusalem unifiée

capitale éternelle » de l’Etat juif — pour éviter toute discussion

sérieuse. Il accepta même d’engager un dialogue réaliste avec les

Palestiniens. Cette ouverture fut présentée comme une concession à

laquelle M. Arafat n’aurait pas répondu. Le président Clinton attribua

même la responsabilité de l’échec du sommet à M. Arafat — qui n’aurait

pas eu le courage d’« accomplir le dernier pas » — alors qu’il saluait

la « souplesse » de M. Barak...

 

Présentation erronée : le président de l’Autorité palestinienne avait

montré au moins autant de souplesse que son interlocuteur. Il avait

accepté de renoncer à la souveraineté palestinienne sur certains sites

de Jérusalem-Est, notamment sur le mur des Lamentations et sur le

quartier juif de la vieille ville. Mais l’autorité de M. Arafat est

temporelle et ne saurait s’étendre à des lieux qui ont une signification

spirituelle pour l’ensemble du monde musulman, notamment le Haram

al-Sharif (que les Israéliens appellent le mont du Temple).

 

Il ne pouvait donc que rejeter les propositions du président Clinton de

diviser verticalement la souveraineté sur ce site, les Palestiniens

l’exerçant sur ce qui est « au-dessus » du sol du Haram et les

Israéliens sur ce qui est « en dessous ». La volonté insistante des

Israéliens de conserver le contrôle sur la zone située sous la mosquée

al-Aqsa s’appuie sur le fait que c’est là que se trouveraient les ruines

du deuxième temple, celui du roi Salomon, une affirmation qu’aucune

fouille n’a pu confirmer.

 

Avant l’actuelle intifada, on aurait pu envisager un type d’accord

permettant aux parties de poursuivre les négociations sans se noyer dans

le cauchemar de Jérusalem. Israéliens et Palestiniens auraient pu, par

exemple, choisir une procédure qui, contournant les positions de

principe des deux parties, permettait de repousser une décision finale.

 

Une proposition en ce sens, formulée par le Vatican, consistait à faire

de Jérusalem une cité internationale — dans l’esprit du plan de partage

de l’ONU du 29 novembre 1947, qui prévoyait de faire de Jérusalem un «

corpus separatum ». Une telle formule aurait pu être acceptable comme

solution intérimaire, à condition qu’elle s’applique à l’ensemble de la

ville, ouest et est.

Le sommet du Caire unanime

 

Après la visite provocatrice du chef du Likoud, un accord temporaire sur

Jérusalem ne paraît plus possible. D’autant que l’on peut s’interroger :

M. Sharon a-t-il agi seul ou en collusion avec M. Barak ? S’il cherchait

seulement à embarrasser le premier ministre après l’échec du sommet de

Camp David, pourquoi ce dernier, au lieu de le réprimander, lui a-t-il

accordé la protection de 1 000 policiers ? Pourquoi envisagent-ils

également de créer ensemble un gouvernement d’« urgence natio nale » ?

Est-ce la peur du général Barak d’être accusé de capitulation devant les

Arabes qui l’a amené à capituler devant le Likoud, s’interroge, à juste

titre, M. Uri Avnery, un partisan israélien de la paix ?

 

L’intifada déclenchée par M. Sharon (ou MM. Barak et Sharon ?) a redonné

au conflit son caractère polarisé. Il n’est plus possible d’utiliser les

contradictions au sein des rangs arabes (pas même les différences

d’appréciation sur l’Irak) quand on évoque Jérusalem. Le sommet arabe du

Caire l’a montré. Unanime, il a exigé la création d’un Etat palestinien,

avec Jérusalem-Est comme capitale, aux côtés de l’Etat d’Israël, avec

Jérusalem-Ouest comme capitale. Si l’accès au mur des lamentations doit

être garanti aux Israéliens, la souveraineté sur le Haram al-Sharif doit

l’être pour les Pales tiniens.

 

Tout en appelant ses membres qui n’ont pas encore de relations

diplomatiques avec Israël à geler la normalisation avec l’Etat juif — ce

qu’ont déjà fait le Maroc, Oman et la Tunisie -, le sommet a confirmé

que la paix demeure un « objectif stratégique ». Mais encore faut-il

avoir un partenaire pour cela. les responsables arabes s’inquiètent de

l’entrée de M. Sharon dans un gouvernement d’urgence

nationale.Qu’arrivera-til si l’Etat juif utilisait la suspension du

processus de paix pour conduire une offensive militaire contre les pays

arabes les plus vulnérables, avec pour objectif d’imposer définitivement

ses conditions pour un accord final ?

Par Dominique Vidal | 14 juin 2021

Adieu Bibi ?

 

Tel-Aviv a fêté l’événement tard dans la nuit, place Rabin, d’une seule voix : « Adieu, Bibi ! » Et, en écho, la presse française titre sur ce cri. Au risque, comme dit le proverbe, de vendre la peau de l’ours avant de l’avoir tué.

 

 

Le nouveau gouvernement israélien constitue une telle gageure – des islamistes à la droite et à l’extrême droite, en passant par la gauche sioniste et le centre – qu’il menace d’exploser à la première crise et de donner ainsi une nouvelle chance à Benyamin Netanyahou. Ne risque-t-il pas, surtout, de poursuivre pour l’essentiel la politique de ce dernier ?

 

(LIRE AUSSI SUR REGARDS.FR

  >> Palestine : chaque jour, l’apartheid

http://www.regards.fr/idees-culture/au-pied-du-mur/article/palestine-chaque-jour-l-apartheid)

 

Mais d’abord une parenthèse française. En 1969, le candidat communiste au premier tour de l’élection présidentielle, Jacques Duclos, obtient plus de 22% des voix : un grand succès – de quoi faire pâlir d’envie l’actuel candidat du Parti communiste – insuffisant toutefois pour parvenir au second tour, où se retrouvent Georges Pompidou et Alain Poher. Et Duclos de lancer : « Blanc bonnet et bonnet blanc ! » La formule, depuis, semble usée jusqu’à la corde, tant elle a servi, souvent à tort. Même à propos de l’ex-président américain et de son successeur…

 

Ne boudons donc pas notre plaisir. Qu’Israël ferme enfin la page de quinze années de Netanyahou serait un événement des plus heureux pour lui, pour les Palestiniens et pour la paix. Fils et père de ce que la Palestine a subi de plus extrémiste de la part du mouvement sioniste, « Bibi » a radicalisé comme personne la politique de son pays. Il a contribué à armer idéologiquement l’assassin d’Itzhak Rabin, enterré Oslo, colonisé plus que jamais Jérusalem-Est et la Cisjordanie avant de tenter, avec la complicité de Donald Trump, d’annexer la majorité de cette dernière. Il a gravé l’apartheid dans le marbre de la loi constitutionnelle « État-nation du peuple juif » et fait avaler par la Knesset tout un arsenal de lois liberticides. Il a flirté avec tous les dirigeants populistes, notamment en Europe centrale et orientale, même lorsqu’ils affichaient leur négationnisme, voire leur antisémitisme. Cet analphabète ès-histoire estime il est vrai, à l’instar de Faurisson, que « Hitler ne voulait pas exterminer les Juifs [1] »…

 

Zeev Sternhell nous a mis en garde contre la principale caractéristique de l’ère Netanyahou : « Il pousse en Israël, a-t-il écrit dans Le Monde [2], un racisme proche du nazisme à ses débuts. » Chacun vient de voir comment le chef du Likoud, pour échapper à la justice et tenter de sauver son trône, a déchaîné, depuis les « ratonnades » de la fin avril, la violence raciste de ses alliés kahanistes – ceux d’Israël et ceux des colonies - tel un Ku Klux Klan à l’israélienne. La provocatrice Marche nationaliste des drapeaux, reportée au 15 juin et dont Benny Gantz retour de Washington, a demandé l’interdiction, pourrait mettre à nouveau le feu aux poudres. Au point que Nadav Argaman, le chef du Shin Bet, a lancé une mise en garde publique et solennelle contre les « incitations » qui se multiplient, notamment sur les réseaux sociaux et « pourraient être interprétées par certains groupes ou loups solitaires comme une autorisation donnée à la violence [3] ». D’ailleurs, certains n’ont pas attendu pour menacer le nouveau Premier ministre et les six députés de son parti, Yamina (À droite), qui bénéficient depuis quelques jours d’« anges gardiens »…

 

Se réjouir que Netanyahou « dégage » n’implique cependant pas la moindre illusion sur ses remplaçants. Naftali Bennett est un homme d’extrême droite, annexionniste de droit divin et ouvertement raciste. N’a-t-il pas lancé, il y a dix ans, à un député arabe « Vous grimpiez encore aux arbres quand un État juif existait déjà [4] » ? On lui doit aussi cet aveu : « J’ai tué beaucoup d’Arabes dans ma vie. Et il n’y a aucun problème avec ça. [5] » Désormais ministre de l’Intérieur, son bras droit – et, dit-on, son cerveau – Ayelet Shaked a posé sur une affiche à côté d’un flacon de parfum intitulé « Fascisme ». Ministre des Finances, Avigdor Liberman, le chef du parti russe Israel Beteinou (Israël notre

maison) se prononçait pour le transfert (administratif) des Palestiniens d’Israël. Ministre de la Justice, l’ex-likoudnik Gideon Saar, leader de Tikva Hadasha (Nouvel Espoir), a promis, comme ses amis, de ne pas geler la colonisation. Quant à Benny Gantz, maintenu à la Défense, on le sait fier d’avoir en 2014 « renvoyé une partie de la bande de Gaza à l’âge de pierre [6] ».

 

Bref, ce nouveau gouvernement penche nettement à droite, très à droite, même si l’éviction de « Bibi » reconstruit aux nouveaux ministres – provisoirement, en tout cas – une virginité propice à toutes les manœuvres… Certains de ses membres se réclament même volontiers du mouvement qui, depuis l’été dernier, a rassemblé des foules, massives mais hétéroclites, car unies par une seule volonté : en finir avec Netanyahou.

Deux bémols cependant

 

Le quatuor détenteur du vrai pouvoir – Bennett, Lapid, Saar et Liberman – devra tenir compte de la présence au sein de la coalition des islamistes de Ra’am, auquel il a déjà dû faire de nombreuses promesses, et de la « gauche sioniste » (travaillistes et Meretz), sans lesquels il ne dispose pas de majorité. Sans oublier la Liste unie, dont les votes pourraient s’avérer parfois décisifs. Reste à vérifier si les islamistes et la gauche sioniste oseront s’opposer frontalement aux « têtes » du cabinet, à supposer qu’ils le veuillent vraiment, au risque de faire capoter la combinazione et de permettre ainsi le retour de… Netanyahou.

 

Seconde nuance : ce gouvernement sera moins soumis au chantage des partis ultra-orthodoxes qui n’en font pas partie, situation rarissime dans l’histoire d’Israël depuis 1977, mais conforme au souhait de 64% des Israéliens [7]. Du coup, les « laïques » – que sont non seulement Nitzan Horowitz et Merav Michaeli, mais aussi Yaïr Lapid et Avigdor Liberman – pourraient inciter la coalition à commencer à prendre en compte l’aspiration désormais majoritaire à une prise de distance de l’État vis-à-vis de la Synagogue. De là à instaurer un mariage et un divorce civils, à autoriser les transports publics le samedi et à réduire le financement des ultra-orthodoxes...

 

La nouvelle équipe pourra-t-elle donner un coup d’arrêt à l’évolution autoritaire du régime ? Quid de la loi « État-nation du peuple juif » et de l’apartheid qu’elle officialise ? Quid de l’arsenal liberticide voté par la Knesset ? Quid des menaces contre le statut et les compétences de la Cour suprême ? Vu le rapport des forces global et au sein même de la coalition, un véritable renversement de tendance supposerait toutefois une mobilisation populaire pour la préservation de ce qui reste de démocratie, après quinze années de règne de « Bibi ».

 

Comment pourrait-on, sinon, envisager une rupture d’ensemble franche et nette avec les caps choisis par les gouvernements antérieurs ? Quatre élections successives ont confirmé que, si une (courte) majorité d’Israéliens ne voulait plus de Netanyahou, une (large) majorité se situait toujours à droite, à l’extrême droite et dans le camp ultra-orthodoxe : au total 72 députés sur 120. Ajoutons que, sur la question palestinienne, ni la « gauche » sioniste – excepté Meretz – ni les centristes n’affichent de perspective claire, rejetant certes l’annexion mais sans pour autant prôner la création d’un véritable État palestinien.

 

Reste une interrogation majeure. La constitution de ce gouvernement apparaît en fait comme la réplique du tremblement de terre qu’a représenté la défaite de Donald Trump. C’est sans doute parce qu’il était orphelin de son complice états-unien que Netanyahou a fini par perdre la partie… pour l’instant. Le quatuor sera sans doute plus enclin que ce dernier à s’arranger avec l’administration Biden – et réciproquement [8]. D’autant que celle-ci semble savoir ce qu’elle veut

: contenir la montée en puissance de la Chine, donc trouver un compromis sur le nucléaire iranien et, dans le même esprit, calmer le jeu israélo-palestinien. L’heure n’est toutefois pas à une grande initiative américaine de paix.

 

Certes, depuis plus de quatre mois, l’administration Biden défait consciencieusement ce que l’administration Trump avait fait : elle rouvre le consulat américain à Jérusalem-Est et la Mission de Palestine à Washington, revient à l’UNRWA avec 235 millions de dollars, réaffirme le caractère « illégal » des colonies et des annexions, présente la « normalisation » en cours comme ne se substituant pas à la nécessaire négociation israélo-palestinienne, etc. Mais, au beau milieu de la guerre de Netanyahou pour sauver son « trône » en bombardant sauvagement Gaza, la Maison Blanche a fait profil si bas...

CAPP is doing mission critical work around “domestic terrorists” by supporting the jailed Capitol “rioters.”  There are over 400 political prisoners, some being indefinitely detained, incommunicado, denied bail and/or no access to their lawyers. There are reports of torture as well.

 

Take note, people:  This issue is a canary in the coal mine for any activist voicing dissent.  “First they came for the Capitol protesters . . .”

 

Please send this CAPP video far and wide.  No one, not even conservative media, is shining a light on this grave Constitutional matter.  We gotta make noise and let the world know we will not let the powers that be go Soviet on us!

“We have to stop it!”

The Fuellmich/McCullough interview that broke the sound barrier

https://archives.simplelists.com/nfu/msg/16850467/

by Celia Farber

 

I don't believe there's ever been a moment of such urgency; and that is not

hyperbole. The world has certainly been wounded by catastrophe before,

but never by a (man-made) global danger, all at once; and never in the guise

of a campaign to save us, and save Nature, while actively destroying us, and

sterilizing her.

That comforting disguise, with its kind mask, has made this worldwide

Holocaust invisible—has had its victims clamoring to board that final

train, and have their children either wiped out, too, or, should they survive,

incapable of procreation, while those high above us, engineering this

catastrophe, have had as many children as they like. The key to their

success (so far) at mass extermination is that they have not relied

primarily on force, the way the Bolsheviks and Nazis did, but, this time,

on mass hypnosis and seduction, carried out primarily through

propaganda, which has us seeing our killers as our rescuers.

We might call them ravening wolves, disguised as sheep, except that

such old-fashioned creatures are (unless we act) doomed, too, since

They no doubt intend to kill the wolves, and other nasty quadrupeds,

along with us, while engineering new and better "sheep."

by Mark Crispin Miller


”If you said this is all a Gates Foundation program to reduce the population,

it’s fitting very well with that hypothesis, right? The first wave was to kill the old people by the respiratory infection,

the second wave is to take the survivors and target the young people and sterilize them.”

“If you notice the messaging in the country, in the United States, they’re not even interested in old people now.

They want the kids. They want the kids, kids, kids, kids kids! They’re such a focus on the kids.

We have to stop it. And we have to see what’s behind it.”

Peru at the Brink of Civil War? The Uprising of the Dispossessed

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/56596.htm

by Peter Koenig

 

On 28 July 2021, Peru, with her 33 million inhabitants, celebrates 200 years of Independence. The People of Peru may have chosen this Bicentennial celebration, to bring about a drastic change to their foreign and national oligarchy-run country. In a neck-on-neck national election run-off on 6 June 2021, the socialist Pedro Castillo, a humble primary school professor from rural Cajamarca, a Northern Peruvian Province, rich in mining resources, but also in agricultural land, seems to be winning by a razor-thin margin of fewer than 100,000 votes against the oligarch-supported Keiko Fujimori, daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori, currently in prison – or rather house arrest for “ill-health” – for corruption and crimes against humanity during his presidency 1990-2000.

Election results have been considered as fair by the pro-US, pro-capitalist Organization of American States (OAS). The same organization that supported the post-election US-instigated coup against Evo Morales in November 2019. Either they have learned a lesson of ethics, or there were too many international observers watching over OAS’s election observations. Or, as a third option, Washington may have yet a different agenda for this part of their “backyard”.

Keiko Fujimori, before becoming a Presidential candidate she was in prison under preventive arrest, while under investigation into corruption and human rights abuse. She is currently collecting millions from her ruling-class elite supporters and spending her own ill-begotten money to turn the election result around. Ten days after the elections, there has no definite result been published yet. For Keiko becoming President is not only a question of power, it is also a question of freedom under government immunity, or back to prison, at least until the investigation into her alleged crimes is completed.

All is possible in a country where money buys everything and may convert clearly and visibly intended cast votes either as invalid or as a vote for the opponent. This is Peru, but to be sure, election fraud happens even in the most sophisticated countries, including in Peru’s North American neighbor, which pretends to run the world.

Pedro Castillo – A Teacher Elected to Dismantle Neoliberalism in Peru?

https://www.globalresearch.ca/pedro-castillo-teacher-elected-dismantle-neoliberalism-peru/5748273

by Francisco Dominguez

 

With 100% of the votes counted, Castillo, candidate of left-wing coalition Peru Libre, won with 50.14 % of the votes, against Keiko Fujimori, daughter of infamous and disgraced corrupt dictator, Alberto Fujimori and right-wing candidate of Fuerza Popular, a coalition supported by the country’s oligarchic elite, obtained 49,86%.

To many, Castillo’s electoral robust performance in the first round with 18% of the vote was a surprise, since up to that point, the main contender for the left was Veronika Mendoza, candidate of the Juntos por el Perucoalition, who obtained slightly less than 8%. Below we examine the main events and developments that would culminate in this extraordinary victory for the Peruvian and Latin American Left.

The DARK HISTORY of the SUPER BOWL

https://youtu.be/pYtDQLI2iZg

with reallygraceful

(12:05)

 

"The Dark History of the Super Bowl" takes a deep dive into the origins of the big game: The word “entertainment” can be traced back to old French and Latin with its roots meaning “to hold” and “to keep someone in a certain frame of mind”, and there’s no greater annual entertainment event that captivates the masses quite like the “big game”. Professional football’s annual ritual, the Super Bowl, has transformed from a mere championship game to an economic juggernaut and cultural force, garnering more viewership than any measly presidential debate. Every year, friends and family gather around the television to watch the big game, the most die-hard fans cheering for the team they view as an extension of themselves, and the most luke-warm viewers just watching for the commercials. While this one moment a year serves as the the most universal, shared cultural experience across the United States, the masses are, by and large, unaware that it’s not just a football game being played out on America’s greatest stage.

Worldwide, people have been misled both by their governments and the media as to the causes and devastating consequences of the Covid-19 “pandemic”.

The unspoken truth is that the novel coronavirus provides a pretext and a justification to powerful financial interests and corrupt politicians to precipitate the entire World into a spiral of mass unemployment, bankruptcy, extreme poverty and despair.

The evidence confirms that there is an insidious and carefully designed project formulated by the upper echelons of the financial establishment.

University "vaccine" mandates are shockingly unethical: Two professors bring it to the Wall Street Journal by Mark Crispin Miller (15 Jun 2021 12:04 EDT)

University Vaccine Mandates Violate Medical Ethics
College students aren’t guinea pigs.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/university-vaccine-mandates-violate-medical-ethics-11623689220
By Aaron Kheriaty and Gerard V. Bradley
June 14, 2021 12:47 pm ET

Some 450 U.S. colleges and universities—including our institutions—have announced policies mandating that all students be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 before the fall semester, with some requiring vaccination now for the summer term. Schools have for decades required vaccination against infectious diseases, but these mandates are unprecedented—and unethical. Never before have colleges insisted that students or employees receive an experimental vaccine as a condition of attendance or employment.
Even soldiers, whose rights are constrained when they join the service, aren’t being compelled to take a Covid vaccine. In a case involving a vaccine against anthrax, a federal district judge held in 2004 that “the United States cannot demand that members of the armed forces also serve as guinea pigs for experimental drugs” absent informed consent or a presidential waiver of service members’ legal protections. The following year the judge held that an emergency-use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration was insufficient to meet the legal test.
The FDA has issued such authorizations for three Covid vaccines, but it hasn’t fully approved any of them. Students at Notre Dame (for example) resume classes on Aug. 23, and freshmen arrive on campus Aug. 18. The Pfizer vaccine—first in line for approval—requires three weeks before the booster shot, so it would have to be approved by July 28 for students to meet the school’s deadline without making themselves experimental subjects. Pfizer applied to the FDA May 7 for “priority review,” a process that usually takes six months.
Universities might counter that—as with elementary schools requiring pediatric vaccinations—immunization is for students’ own good. But children can be at significant medical risks from the illnesses that we vaccinate them against, particularly when community vaccination rates are low. Not so with Covid. For those under 30, the risks of serious morbidity and mortality are close to zero. By contrast, early indications from passive surveillance systems (which call for follow-up investigation) and a June 10 review by the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee indicated an excess risk for heart inflammation, especially in men 30 and younger.

Colleges’ vaccine mandates also ignore the huge number of students—thousands of them at Notre Dame—who have already recovered from Covid infection, and who thus possess natural immunity, which studies have suggested is more robust and durable than vaccine immunity. While vaccinating Covid-recovered patients might produce an antibody uptick, there is no epidemiological evidence that this improves relevant clinical outcomes like reinfection or transmissibility. Previous infection can easily be verified with the university’s own records of testing throughout the past school year, a positive viral test from another provider or an antibody test, which would prove either natural immunity or vaccination.
Forced vaccinations would also commandeer populations that were deliberately excluded from clinical trials, thus subjecting them to novel experimental risks. This includes not only patients who’ve recovered from Covid, but pregnant and breast-feeding women as well.
These coercive mandates violate basic principles of medical ethics. Even if the vaccines receive full FDA approval, no sensible understanding of herd immunity can justify forcing vaccinations on healthy young adults who are at minimal risk of hospitalization or death from Covid, especially those who already had Covid. We don’t immunize children against diseases that primarily harm the elderly in hope of reducing transmission risks for the elderly. That would use the recipients as a means to another end, which is unethical.
Consider the analogy of nontherapeutic research, from which the research subject doesn’t stand to benefit directly. The central canon of medical ethics in this situation is the free and informed consent of the research subject, as articulated in the Nuremberg Code and the Helsinki Declaration. Informed consent is likewise required for medical decisions in all adults of sound mind. This is arguably the most deeply rooted doctrine in contemporary medical ethics.
A person may freely choose to accept medical risks for the benefit of others, as when one donates a kidney for transplant. But there is no moral duty to do so. This is why we don’t harvest organs without consent, even if doing so would save many lives. Those who make such sacrifices for others must truly be volunteers, not conscripts drafted by college administrators.
University leaders might claim that vaccine mandates are necessary to make faculty, staff and students “feel safe” enough to reopen. That’s specious. Requiring the naturally immune to be vaccinated doesn’t make anyone actually safer. It is wrong to risk harming healthy people so that college can peddle a psychological placebo to those who don’t care enough to consider basic scientific facts.
We must maintain our integrity under pressure. It is precisely in dire situations, such as wars or pandemics, that we are most sorely tempted to abandon ethical principles. Authorities rushing to implement mandatory vaccination protocols are ignoring available scientific data, basic principles of immunology and elementary norms. Even if some sincerely think that these regimes are needed to open safely, that belief neither makes it so nor justifies coercive policies that steamroll fundamental liberties.

By and large, the "humanities" in Academia today no longer deserve protection
or respect; nor, increasingly, does it seem worth the candle, not to mention decades 
of debt peonage, to get a college education. 
Welcome to the new Dark Ages; and, just as monasteries once preserved the texts
of ancient Greece and Rome, we will have to do whatever it may take to keep real
libraries from crumbling (or burning), and free thought itself protected from the

Princeton Dumbs Down Classics
And that might be the right way to save classics from oblivion.

My Atlantic colleague John McWhorter and I must have received the same high-frequency language-nerd alert, audible only to the types of people whose idea of fun is Esperanto grammar. We both recently learned that Princeton’s classics department had ceased requiring its students to study Latin and Greek, and we reacted in predictable horror. A classics department without Latin and Greek is like a math department without multiplication and division, or an art department without paint. More than a thousand years ago, the monk Ælfric prefaced his Latin Grammar by saying it was “the key that unlocks the understanding of books.” I had a vision of a new generation of Princeton classicists, sniffing and thwacking at padlocked volumes of Thucydides or Cicero with looks of total incomprehension, like Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson trying to get the files “in the computer” in Zoolander.

NYU REturns
Requiring COVID-19 Vaccinations for All NYU Employees
Date:
June 15, 2021
To:
All NYU Employees, Faculty and Staff
From:
Katherine Fleming, Provost
Martin Dorph, Exec. Vice President
Carlo Ciotoli, MD, Exec. Lead, COVID-19 Prevention & Response Team
Sabrina Ellis, Vice President for Human Resources

Vaccinations — Safe, Effective, Free, and Much Needed
For our return to campus in fall 2021, vaccination is the single most effective tool we have to safeguard the health of the NYU community, enable us to lift restrictions, and restore the pre-COVID practices, rhythms, and unguarded interactions of campus life. With nearly 140 million Americans fully vaccinated — including at least 35,000 people that we know of so far in the University community — the vaccines have proven themselves to be very safe and highly effective.
A Requirement for NYU Faculty and Employees to be Vaccinated, and Accompanying Deadline
In mid-April, the University announced its intent to require students to be vaccinated before the fall semester, and has since been examining the issue of requiring it of faculty and employees as well. 
NYU, like a number of major research universities, has decided to require all faculty (tenured, tenure-track, full-time contract, and adjunct) and employees working at its US campuses and locations to be fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved or WHO-listed vaccine, and to have uploaded proof of vaccination by August 1, 2021.  
Given the University’s aim to have high rates of vaccination among its community members by the time the fall semester starts, the current ample availability of vaccination appointments, and the schedule most schools and offices have for the gradual ramp-up of employees as we move toward fall, August 1 seems an appropriate, reasonable date.
We will have in place an exemption process for those with valid reasons such as qualifying medical conditions or religious beliefs. We will also be making provisions for an excused absence for those who feel unwell the day after being vaccinated.
Our Responsibilities to One Another
Many in our community have already been vaccinated; back in the first months of 2021, the questions we confronted most often from faculty and employees were how and how quickly we could connect them to vaccinations.
However, we know that others in our community will have lingering unease about being vaccinated for a variety of reasons, notwithstanding the overwhelming weight of evidence demonstrating vaccination’s benefits, safety, and effectiveness.  
We want to be sensitive to those concerns. Nonetheless, we think that universal vaccination is essential to the health of the NYU community — and the neighborhoods and city around us — as well as to the success of the 2021-22 academic year. Perhaps even more importantly, we all need to do our part to help keep each other safe, and getting vaccinated is vital to that.  
And so, we are calling on your good will, your appreciation for the weight of scientific evidence and the best counsel of public health figures, and your sense of responsibility to one another as members of this community.
For those who have already been vaccinated, it is important that you upload proof of vaccination as soon as you receive the final dose of your vaccine. That upload will mean you will no longer have to test regularly or quarantine if you are a close contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19 (reminder: these changes come when you are fully vaccinated, meaning two weeks after your final dose of vaccine). It will also give us important data for making public health decisions with respect to our campus.
For those of you who have been planning to get vaccinated but haven’t quite gotten around to it yet, now would be the time. The University provides 4 hours off to be vaccinated (and we can be more accommodating if need be, including allowing an excused absence if you feel ill the day after your vaccination). And there are abundant opportunities (through resources such as this site for NYC, this site for NYS, this site for CT, and this site for NJ) to make a vaccination appointment.
And for those of you who have been trying to decide whether or not to get vaccinated: we need you to please now join with tens of thousands of your fellow NYUers in taking the most important step we can at this time to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  
In order to maintain a high level of health safety for the entire community, those who are unvaccinated will be required to test frequently, will have to continue to take their temperature daily and answer all questions on the Daily Screener, and will likely have to continue to wear masks in University settings.
In the coming weeks, we will hold a webinar on the vaccination requirement to surface and address the questions you may have, including questions about the exemptions process. In addition, we will write again soon with additional details.

Your tax dollars at work (against you): US donating $1.2 BILLION to ensure market for Merck's pricey alternative to Ivermectin by Mark Crispin Miller (15 Jun 2021 18:47 EDT)

Article 1 | DGHS Hatchet Chops Ivermectin Nationally While Positioning Unproven Tocilizumab Despite Success of Uttar Pradesh—How will ICMR & AIMS Weigh In?
In India it appears that as quickly as select national health authorities included ivermectin in the national guidelines, so too, has the recommendation just as been rescinded despite what appears to be tremendous success in states such as Uttar Pradesh.

Article 2 | After $356M in Federal Funds in Dec, Merck Secures $1.2B Federal Commitment to Buy its Experimental Drug Upon Key Milestones

In an interesting case that has some suggesting brilliant corporate enterprising business prowess while critics suggest it is an example of crony capitalism on display… Merck has recently announced it secured a $1.2 billion public commitment for up to $1.7 million courses of its still experimental antiviral drug Molnupiravir to the United States government.

The Federal government is funding the development of an expensive alternative to ivermectin.  They are guaranteeing 1.2 Billion dollars to fund payment for treatments.  This drug will probably receive emergency use authorization.  What do you think Merck will charge?  $4000 per treatment?  Ivermectin is only about $3 per treatment. I believe this is the reason that any news of the success of Ivermectin is being challenged.  So not only does our government fund the development of expensive pharmaceutical drugs (when cheaper, safer, more effective drugs already exist), but it also provides over a billion dollars to guarantee a market for these drugs.  Unbelievable!

And people believe it when Merck claims that ivermectin is unproven and unsafe.  Do they know that Merck has a huge conflict of interest?!!!

Real journalist blows the whistle brilliantly on Fox 26 (Houston), for its complete corruption by Big Pharma's ad revenues (MUST-SEE) by Mark Crispin Miller (15 Jun 2021 19:39 EDT)
Reply to list
This piece by Project Veritas illuminates exactly how "our
free press" maintains, and protects, the propaganda narrative, regardless of whatever harm the latter does its targets, or what those targets (We the People) want to know. We see how that narrative is not imposed overtly, but tacitly—unless you err by contradicting it, in which case they'll stomp all over you. 
Kudos to Ivory Hecker for her journalistic principles. I only wish we had a real news operation going here, since if we did I'd hire her in a heartbeat.
And, as well, kudos to Project Veritas for doing this great piece. (It's going to be a problem for some people on "the left," since they hate James O'Keefe, and yet in this case he's going after Fox, which paradox might make their heads explode.)

China’s rapid growth and transition towards a more market-oriented economic system have encouraged spectators to predict massive changes to the Chinese political and social system. However, while growth is slowing, the economy remains sound and the Chinese Communist Party emerged from the 19th Party Congress with its strongest leader in years. What makes experts forecast again and again that China is on the verge of collapse? Yukon Huang, former Country Director for China at the World Bank, cuts through the myths and joins us to discuss his new book, "Cracking the China Conundrum: Why Conventional Economic Wisdom is Wrong." His in-depth analysis explores the varied dynamics at play in China’s economic growth today and sheds light on why so many China watchers have gotten it wrong.

Empire of Clowns vs. Yellow Peril

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/56589.htm

by Pepe Escobar

 

Global South will be unimpressed by new B3W infrastructure scheme funded by private Western interests out for short-term profit.

It requires major suspension of disbelief to consider the G7, the self-described democracy’s most exclusive club, as relevant to the Raging Twenties. Real life dictates that even accounting for the inbuilt structural inequality of the current world system the G7’s economic output barely registers as 30% of the global total.

Cornwall was at best an embarrassing spectacle – complete with a mediocrity troupe impersonating “leaders” posing for masked elbow bump photo ops while on a private party with the 95-year-old Queen of England, everyone was maskless and merrily mingling about in an apotheosis of “shared values” and “human rights”.

Quarantine on arrival, masks enforced 24/7 and social distancing of course is only for the plebs.

The G7 final communique is the proverbial ocean littered with platitudes and promises. But it does contain a few nuggets. Starting with ‘Build Back Better’ – or B3 – showing up in the title. B3 is now official code for both The Great Reset and the New Green Deal.

Then there’s the Yellow Peril remixed, with the “our values” shock troops “calling on China to respect human rights and fundamental freedoms” with a special emphasis on Xinjiang and Hong Kong.

The story behind it was confirmed to me by a EU diplomatic source, a realist (yes, there are some in Brussels).

Subject: First they came for the 400 January 6th "insurrectionists" . . . UNIQUE EXTENSIVE COVERAGE

 

Report from DC rally, June 19, to demand the freedom of over 400 Capitol "rioters" languishing in jail without bail

 

LONG WRITE-UP, FRIENDS – WORTH READING

 

I attended a rally, Saturday, June 19, by Look Ahead America to protest the unconstitutional holding of over 400 people arrested at the Capitol on January 6. These men, many veterans, are still being held almost half a year later without bail, mostly in solitary confinement, some incommunicado, on absurdly exaggerated charges (e.g., “trespassing,” “parading”).

 

Only about 50 people attended the 6/19 DC rally, but then again, this is the very first rally to so much as publicly protest the treatment of these persecuted citizens. Elizabeth Warren has spoken out a bit. Not even Donald Trump for whom the protesters came to Washington on January 6 to support, is publicly calling for help for these bona fide political prisoners.

 

Aptly timed is the recent release of whistleblower information reporting -- surprise, surprise -- the FBI was involved in the planning, infiltration, and execution of the fake, ginned-up Capitol “insurrection.”  The Deep State goal was to create a propaganda platform that promulgates the fiction that dangerous “domestic terrorists” are among us.  Besides a Trump impeachment, all manner of dirty tricks could profit from an official “insurrectionist” narrative. Like we didn’t know that was hidden in there somewhere.

 

BOTTOM LINE, PEOPLE – The fate of these 400+ prisoners directly affects ALL Americans.  The current powers that be are hellbent on eviscerating all of our constitutional rights, freedoms, liberties, and political dissent.  These prisoners are the canaries in the coal mine.

 

With the liberal left’s shocking alliance with the FBI and the CIA (yes, really!!), they do not yet grok that they, too, will eventually be in the totalitarian crosshairs. That’s how authoritarian systems work. With all due respect (because since teething they were my tribe), the left has become utter “useful idiots.”

Emanating Love
In Times of Horror
Jun 18

“These people know full well their careers are over, but they do it anyway.” And possibly worse than losing their careers; seeing old bonds of family and friendship reduced to antipathy. For this true courage they are called “selfish”, “egotistical”, etc. That this calibre of attack finds fertile soil in the general population is an unequivocal sign of mass hysteria magicked to fever pitch by people who know what they do, but lack the wisdom and compassion to really KNOW what they do. Should they ‘succeed’, what world do they imagine their children will inherit? They cannot succeed. Love and Life are the stronger forces. This is a global object lesson in hubris, loveless ambition, the bitterness of cowardly compliance and valuing mere social status above all other things. It is Goethe’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice writ large, become a conflagration of the vanities. I am shocked, too often to count, by how violently invested people are in hateful fear, in wilful ignorance. Finding my way to a loving response is extremely difficult, especially because there’s very little one can do with it but wait. And watch on in (seemingly) impotent horror. The hysterical mob has to exhaust itself, spend its fury, run its course. I suppose it was always going to go this way; how else can humanity learn what it needs to learn? And yet this mob has been deliberately coaxed into being: a crime against humanity. Or is it a crime of humanity against itself? Free will is sacred. Knowing this is one part of what can be the sorrow of love. And even though free will has been manipulated and deceived by those few who seek to impose theirs over everyone else’s – at the expense of the innocent! – even though righteous anger feels so strongly like the right response, when we love we emanate love, and that is vital. For whatever reason, it dawned on me sometime during my early thirties that love must be unconditional to be love. Something about that realisation put me on a particularly moral path that has, it seems, triggered all manner of personal object lessons as fate relentlessly, lovingly, disavowed me of my delusions of grandeur, my vanities, insecurities, and much else besides. It is a continuing process. One truth that has been almost crow-barred into me is that love has no object. “I love you” is not, strictly speaking, a logically tenable utterance. “I am love”, though grand, is closer, or perhaps simply, “I love”. Love opens loving connections between self and others that give rise to the “I love you” feeling, which is so wonderful to speak. Love arises naturally when we clear ourselves of our emotional-psychological muck. If we think of the soul as a tuning fork, it cannot sing unless it is naked, uncluttered, clean. When it sings, it just sings. Its song has no object; it is an emanation, the natural state of a truly healthy soul. That state is the way out of this horror, because this horror is the natural consequence of turning away from love, away from God, and pursuing vanities, greeds, selfish appetites. Every one of us can dedicate ourselves humbly to this extraordinary undoing towards love. It is exactly as painful as our resistance to its lessons is fierce. As Pema Chodron put it: “Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.”

A confidentiality agreement shows potential coronavirus vaccine candidates were transferred from Moderna to the University of North Carolina in 2019, nineteen days prior to the emergence of the alleged Covid-19 causing virus in Wuhan, China.
The confidentially agreement which can be viewed here states that providers ‘Moderna’ alongside the ‘National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID) agreed to tranfer ‘mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidates’ developed and jointly-owned by NIAID and Moderna to recipients ‘The Universisty of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’ on the 12th December 2019.

Here is the analytical article I’ve been promising forever (with huge thanks to Mary Otto-Chang who pointed me in this direction and who has been researching this topic for a while.)
Before I go into the article…. I can really use some kindness and unfortunately, I need to do another fundraiser. Anyone who is already donating to me, thank you from the bottom of my heart! If you can donate something, or monthly, you will make my day big time.
This story is about happytalism. Due to the vast amount of information, this is part one of the series.
“Happytalism” is a very tricky word that hasn’t gotten much attention yet—but we may start hearing about it shortly.
It’s a branding term that sweetly refers to the same transhumanist framework of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Great Reset (where real estate ownership is concentrated, where living beings are reduced to “digital twins” managed through the blockchain, and where we “own nothing” and eat bugs).
“Happytalism” is a piece of marketing language that lives together with “green and sustainable development,” “racial equity,” “inclusivity, “climate justice,” “building back better,” and so on.
Speaking of bugs, I can’t resist. [Click on the link for the rest.]

In Joe Biden's America, you too can be a "terrorist" (and probably are one already) by Mark Crispin Miller (19 Jun 2021 09:51 EDT)

Who Is A “Terrorist” In Biden’s America?
Posted on June 18, 2021 AuthorWhitney WebbComment(0)
https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/who-is-a-terrorist-in-bidens-america/
Far from being a war against “white supremacy,” the Biden administration’s new “domestic terror” strategy clearly targets primarily those who oppose US government overreach and those who oppose capitalism and/or globalization.
In the latest sign that the US government’s War on Domestic Terror is growing in scope and scale, the White House on Tuesday revealed the nation’s first ever government-wide strategy for confronting domestic terrorism. While cloaked in language about stemming racially motivated violence, the strategy places those deemed “anti-government” or “anti-authority” on a par with racist extremists and charts out policies that could easily be abused to silence or even criminalize online criticism of the government.
Even more disturbing is the call to essentially fuse intelligence agencies, law enforcement, Silicon Valley, and “community” and “faith-based” organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, as well as unspecified foreign governments, as partners in this “war,” which the strategy makes clear will rely heavily on a pre-crime orientation focused largely on what is said on social media and encrypted platforms. Though the strategy claims that the government will “shield free speech and civil liberties” in implementing this policy, its contents reveal that it is poised to gut both.
Indeed, while framed publicly as chiefly targeting “right-wing white supremacists,” the strategy itself makes it clear that the government does not plan to focus on the Right but instead will pursue “domestic terrorists” in “an ideologically neutral, threat-driven manner,” as the law “makes no distinction based on political view—left, right or center.” It also states that a key goal of this strategic framework is to ensure “that there is simply no governmental tolerance . . . of violence as an acceptable mode of seeking political or social change,” regardless of a perpetrator’s political affiliation. 
Considering that the main cheerleaders for the War on Domestic Terror exist mainly in establishment left circles, such individuals should rethink their support for this new policy given that the above statements could easily come to encompass Black Lives Matter–related protests, such as those that transpired last summer, depending on which political party is in power. 
Once the new infrastructure is in place, it will remain there and will be open to the same abuses perpetrated by both political parties in the US during the lengthy War on Terror following September 11, 2001. The history of this new “domestic terror” policy, including its origins in the Trump administration, makes this clear.

Justin "Son of Fidel" Trudeau makes a deal with Pfizer for enough "booster" shots to kill most everyone in Canada by 2024 by Mark Crispin Miller (19 Jun 2021 11:02 EDT)
Reply to list
That nickname is no joke. (Gossip warning:)
They say that Margaret Trudeau, a free and easy spirit, 
did the deed with Fidel Castro; which, from the look of
it, is true: Justin looks a lot more like Fidel than like his
alleged dad, Pierre Trudeau.
And his topdown style of governance also looks a lot 
more like Fidel's than like that of any democratic head 
of state—though, unlike Castro, Trudeau is just another 
globalist sock puppet, following a script; nor would 
Castro have partnered with Big Pharma to reduce the 
numbers of his people. (These days I would much rather 
live in Cuba than in Canada, just as I'd rather live in 
Nicaragua than in Australia or New Zealand.)
In any case, they need—we need—a revolution up in
Canada, and elsewhere in what once was called "the
free world," eh?

What I Know and Don’t Know about SARS-CoV-2 Virus
June 19, 2021 
by Ed Curtin
http://edwardcurtin.com/what-i-know-and-dont-know-about-sars-cov-2-virus/
After fifteen months of assiduous reading, study, observation, and research, I have come to some conclusions about what is called COVID-19.  I would like to emphasize that I have done this work obsessively since it seemed so important.  I have consulted information and arguments across all media, corporate and alternative, academic, medical, books, etc.  I have consulted with researchers around the world.  I have read the websites of the CDC, the World Health Organization, and government and non-government health organizations.  In other words, I have left no stone unturned, despite the overt or covert political leanings of the sources.  I have done this as a sociologist and writer, not as a medical doctor, although many of my sources have been medical doctors and medical studies.
My succinct conclusions follow without links to sources since I am not trying to persuade anyone of anything but just stating for the public record what I have concluded.  Life is short.  I am going to say it now.
I know that vast numbers of people have been hypnotized by fear, threats, and bribes to accept the corporate mainstream media’s version of COVID-19. I have concluded that many millions are moving in a trance state and do not know this. They have been induced into this state by a well-organized, very sophisticated propaganda campaign that has drawn on the human fear of death and disease.  Those behind this have no doubt studied the high incidence of hypochondriasis in the general population and the fear of an invisible “virus” in societies where belief in God and the spiritual invisible has been replaced by faith in science.  Knowing their audience well, they have concocted a campaign of fear and confusion to induce obedience.Click on the link for the rest


Getting jabbed is SO much fun! "Vaccine" propaganda from Down Under by Mark Crispin Miller (19 Jun 2021 13:12 EDT)
Reply to list
These two chuckleheads were already seriously brain-damaged
before they got their shots.
Note her statement that they got their shots, not so they themselves
might be immune to COVID-19 from now on, but out of "responsibility
to the community"—the collectivist point of all the COVID-19 "vaccine" 
propaganda everywhere: "I'm doing it, so you have to do it, too (or
it won't work)." 
That's how they've been pushing masks—and all the pious maskers
bought it, staying far away from any unmasked person, as if their
masks don't work, unless you're also wearing one—and it's how they're 
now pushing the injections all this year.
It's a kind of voodoo, no doubt derived from many hours of market
research, and God knows whatever other dark investigations They 
have funded, to figure out precisely which lie might work best; and  
since it tends to be the "educated" liberal masses that are most 
susceptible to any seeming-altruistic pitch, it's they who've fallen
hardest for this democidal "vaccination" scam, which is now killing 
countless people, even as its champions keep yammering that it's 
the right thing to do, for everybody's sake. 
Thus the world feels more and more like Jonestown, on the day
it ended.

Ads like this one—and there are quite a few of them—are crimes
against humanity, no less than the Nazis' anti-Jewish propaganda.

U.S. Ambassadors to Russia Interviewed

Insights, personal reflections spanning 30+ years provide context for today’s Biden-Putin summit

Transcripts from Middlebury Institute at Monterey videos include eight former U.S. ambassadors to Moscow, unique perspectives on U.S.-Russia relations

 

Washington, D.C., June 16, 2021 – The National Security Archive marks today’s summit meeting in Geneva between President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin by publishing detailed transcripts from interviews with eight former U.S. ambassadors to Moscow, courtesy of the Middlebury Institute for International Studies at Monterey.

The interviews, titled The Ambassadorial Series, provide essential context and historical perspective on more than 30 years of U.S.-Russian relations dating back to Gorbachev and forward to the initially promising and subsequently sour relationship with Putin.

The senior American diplomats interviewed include Jack Matlock, Thomas Pickering, James Collins, Alexander Vershbow, John Byerle, Michael McFaul, John Tefft, and Jon Huntsman, covering practically the entire past three decades of U.S. relations with Moscow.

Professor Anna Vassilieva, director of the Graduate Initiative in Russian Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, organized the interview project and provided the following introduction:

"At a time when dialogue between American and Russian diplomats is reduced to a bare minimum and when empathy and civility fall short of diplomacy between major powers, we are pleased to introduce The Ambassadorial Series. It is a compilation of conversations with eight outstanding American diplomats who served at various points of time as U.S. ambassadors to the Soviet Union and, after its dissolution, to the Russian Federation. The Series provides nuanced analyses of crucial aspects of the U.S.-Russia relationship, such as the transition from the Soviet Union to contemporary Russia and the evolution of Putin’s presidency. It does so through the personal reflections of the ambassadors. As Ambassador Alexander Vershbow observes, “[t]he Ambassadorial Series is a reminder that U.S. relations with Putin's Russia began on a hopeful note, before falling victim to the values gap.” At its heart, this project is conceived as a service to scholars and students of American diplomacy vis-à-vis Russia. The interviews, released as videos, podcasts, and a transcript, form a unique resource for those who want to better understand the evolving relationship between the two countries."

Generous support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York made possible the ambassadors’ interviews, as well as the previous MIIS-National Security Archive cooperative project on archival research in the former Soviet Union, The Bridge.
