Australia’s Government Is From the Dark Ages

On July 27, 1656, senior leaders of the Jewish community in Amsterdam issued a writ of cherem— the Hebrew term for expulsion and excommunication.

Their target was a young, 23-year old Dutch/Portuguese intellectual named Baruch Spinoza, himself a Jew, whose dangerous crime was questioning the unquestionable teachings of the faith.

The Jewish elders proclaimed that “The Lord will rage against this man and… blot out his name from under heaven” and ordered that no Jew should communicate with him, offer him shelter, give him money, or read any of his writings.

A few years later, the Catholic Church followed suit and added all of Spinoza’s works to its Index of Banned Books. This makes Baruch Spinoza one of the few people in history to be banished from both the Jewish and Catholic religions.

His philosophy was widely misunderstood at the time. Everyone accused him of being an atheist, which was one of the worst things you could call someone in the 1600s.

But he wasn’t actually an atheist. Spinoza’s works were an attempt for him to reconcile his faith with certain religious teachings that were illogical, self-contradictory, or refuted by science.

He wrote extensively about his “intellectual love of God”. But simply for expressing intellectual independence, Spinoza was expelled from his own Jewish community.

Now, Novak Djokovic is hardly a Baruch Spinoza. But it is truly bizarre in the year 2022 to see someone be expelled from an advanced western democracy simply for expressing intellectual independence.

Just to catch you up, Novak Djokovic is a professional Tennis player from Serbia who is considered one of the all-time greats in the sport. He’s currently ranked #1 in the world and holds an incredible number of records in professional tennis.

But Djokovic is unvaccinated against Covid-19, and that makes him a heretic.

He recently attempted to travel to Melbourne, in the prison colony of Australia, to play in the Australian Open tennis tournament there. But upon arrival, Djokovic was immediately detained by immigration authorities.

After a ridiculous nine days of legal back-and-forth, Djokovic was deported from the country. And under current law, he is barred from entering Australia for a minimum of three years.

It’s worth noting that the Australian government had issued an entry visa to Djokovic as recently as mid-November, so it’s not like he tried to enter the country illegally.

Plus they knew at the time that he was unvaccinated; Djokovic has been public about his stance.

Yet the government only kicked up a fuss (and canceled his visa) once he had already arrived.

In support of their decision to cancel his visa, the government claimed that Djokovic was a danger to society because his presence could incite civil unrest.

Naturally they provided no evidence to support this assertion. It’s true because the government says it’s true.

But even if it were true, this particular argument is a bizarre ‘pre-crime’ condemnation of Djokovic; the Australian government has peered into its crystal ball and concluded that other people will engage in civil unrest. Therefore their solution is to punish a tennis player who hasn’t done anything wrong.

Makes perfect sense.

Their next argument, naturally, is that Djokovic is a danger to public health. Because he is unvaccinated, they claim that he can carry and spread the virus to others.

Obviously this is true. And yet, as all the data show, vaccinated people can also carry and transmit the virus. Vaccinated people can become infected and hospitalized. They can even die.

Vaccination rates in Australia are among the highest in the world, and they’re feverishly (no pun intended) administering booster shots to the population.

Yet despite this adherence to public health authorities, cases are surging to record highs. In the last 24 hours there were 55,232 new Covid cases in Australia.

By comparison, Australia had 10 (yes, ten) new daily cases a year ago in January 2021, just prior to the vaccine rollout.

But now that 92.6% of eligible Australians have been vaccinated, the infection rate has increased more than 5,000x from a year ago.

Obviously vaccinated people are transmitting the virus to other vaccinated people.


Yet the government seems to be asserting that only unvaccinated people like Djokovic can spread Omicron… which is a very flat-earth, anti-science view.

But the Australian government’s dumbest reason to expel Djokovic was that his presence in the country may increase vaccine or booster hesitancy.

This one is really extraordinary.

Let’s assume for a moment that their point is true, i.e. Djokovic could infect Australian people with his dangerous ideology.

Even so, the Australian government apparently believes that ideas only spread through physical contact.

In other words, these politicians think that Australian residents will only become vaccine hesitant if Djokovic is physically present in Australia, as if he’s going to sneeze and his ideas will spread like Omicron droplets.

But as long as they keep him out of the country, then Australians will be sufficiently socially distanced from his ideas and no one will be exposed to his heresy.

Just like the rest of their arguments, this notion is completely absurd. And yet it was their ‘rational’ basis for punishing someone whose only transgression was exercising independent thought.

Back in the 1600s (and prior), anyone who disagreed with the civil or religious authorities was branded a heretic. And their censorship was especially brutal; people were expelled, imprisoned, tortured, and even put to death for questioning authority and expressing a different view.

We have once again returned to medieval intolerance for ideological differences.

Australia’s government is a sad example of this Dark Ages-era mentality– that they (and they alone) dictate truth. And anyone who questions their supreme wisdom must be banished.

Back then people faced Inquisition, witch hunts, and public beheading. Today it’s the Twitter mob, cancel culture, and expulsion.

It’s not quite as bloody, but still ruinous. And it’s reason enough to give very serious consideration to your Plan B. (read more)

We Are All Djokovic, Now

When I’ve talked in the past about the patchwork tyranny post COVID-9/11, I had more mundane things in mind than the fate of a major tennis star.

Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia on Sunday after his appeal to reinstate his visa failed. And it failed not for health reasons but for political ones.

To me, the kinds of terrible rules put in place for ‘public safety’ always conjure up images of casual oppression. Endless videos of pathetic public servants intimidating priests in churches or police arresting pub owners for serving willing patrons.

But it goes far deeper than that. It’s impossible to even conceive of the ways petty bureaucrats and middle managers around the world have destroyed the lives of ordinary people simply trying to get through the day because of a flu.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 insanity Australia has been the poster child for this kind of thoughtless crime against common decency.

Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s decision to revoke Djokovic’s visa was made for political reasons. He didn’t try to hide it. If anything, he was proud of this decision.

Hawke said he accepted Djokovic’s recent Covid-19 infection meant he was a “negligible risk to those around him”, but that he was “perceived by some as a talisman of a community of anti-vaccine sentiment”.

“I consider that Mr Djokovic’s ongoing presence in Australia may lead to an increase in anti-vaccination sentiment generated in the Australian community, potentially leading to an increase in civil unrest of the kind previously experienced in Australia with rallies and protests which may themselves be a source of community transmission.

“Mr Djokovic is … a person of influence and status.

“Having regard to … Mr Djokovic’s conduct after receiving a positive Covid-19 result, his publicly stated views, as well as his unvaccinated status, I consider that his ongoing presence in Australia may encourage other people to disregard or act inconsistently with public health advice and policies in Australia.”

These are the words of the committed totalitarian. He hides it behind his public responsibilities, in this case the health status of an entire nation. If he’s not being controlled by outside forces (yeah, right) then he’s been infected with that dangerous solipsism which comes with this much raw power.

That corruption cannot be avoided.

But Hawke’s decision stems from Australia’s backing themselves into the corner over COVID-9/11 policy. They cannot be seen as backing down for anyone, especially someone like Djokovic.

To do so, as Hawke points out, would invite questioning the policy. And their policy is sacrosanct.

However, having admitted that Djokovic posed almost no threat of spreading COVID-9/11 the only thing at stake was the Australian government’s power.

This type of decision reveals 1) how deeply unpopular the COVID-9/11 rules are in Australia and 2) how weak the Aussie government’s hold over its people really is.

They could have weathered this if they had just quietly let Djokovic into the country to compete. They could have spun it had they wanted to.

They chose escalating the standoff to make an example of him to the unvaxxed population. There is no hope. You will submit. If we can humiliate Djokovic, just imagine what we can do to you.

And they revealed just how desperate they are.

Bureaucrats like Hawke have no sense of the politics of their decisions. They are order-takers, not order-makers. He was ordered to do this. When this standoff started it was during the height of the big push to drive fear over the Omicron variant of COVID-9/11.

That rollout failed spectacularly.

Omicron has flared up and out so quickly this affair now looks like the most insane application of government paranoia this side of Pyongyang.

Those that started this standoff created the mess and didn’t have the sense to clean it up.

Because they insist on building trailer parks in the face of a Cat-5 hurricane of public anger.

They hoped to send the message that no one can escape the jab. The Davos agenda of health passes and total technocratic control is inevitable. It’s the EU variant of the virus which Hawke’s immigration policies couldn’t stop coming to Australia.

What they wound up with is a whole lotta people shaking their heads.

But, don’t think for a second Australia is done sending messages to the untermenschen. Now, after he’s been deported, barred from competing and earning his living, Djokovic is liable for all the court costs associated with this decision.

Those costs are estimated to be $500,000.

The three judge panel that upheld the lower court ruling avoided any responsibility in the matter, neatly throwing the decision right back on Minister Hawke. Prime Minister Scott Morrison, clearly one of the people pushing this disaster behind the scenes, also left Hawke out to dry.

Next up for Djokovic will a standoff with France over the French Open. France and Davos will hound him until he submits because they think he cares more about his 21st Grand Slam title than he does his own health. It guess they didn’t get his message during the Australian affair.

But their message is very clear. We are in charge. We can make whatever rules we deem necessary. If you challenge them not only will we deny your challenge on arbitrary grounds but we’ll bankrupt you in the process.

And here I thought we in the post-enlightenment West could petition our governments over unjust laws. I thought this was the first world and not some tin pot dictatorship of thin-lipped, fat-headed midwits?

Only the most insane people are cheering this decision today. They are a part of the 29% of Democrats in the US who believe the unvaxxed should have their children taken from them. Sadly, there are still too many in the thrall of the COVID-9/11 mind virus.

But, if you didn’t get the message before the persecution of Novak Djokovic, I hope you get it now. And I hope he continues to be an example for the rest of us. (read more)

They are making an example of Novak Djokovic. Here’s why.

Tennis star Novak Djokovic is being deported from Australia, after losing his final appeal the ATP’s top-ranked player will not be allowed to defend his Australian Open title.

It was reported this morning that an Australian court had refused Djokovic’s appeal against the cancellation of his visa, and as such he’s being put on a plane and flown out of the country.

To be clear: This is all because he’s not “vaccinated” against Covid19, and vocally speaks out against the practice. The government have clearly and publicly admitted as much…but we’ll get to that.

The rejection of Djokovic’s medical exemption and subsequent deportation has been accompanied by a wave of vitriol in the press the likes of which we have rarely seen.

One Australian sports presenter was “accidentally” recorded calling him a “lying, sneaky arsehole” in a video that was later “leaked” to the press.

The Spectator has one piece which is nothing more than a slew of ad hominem and mockery, against not just Djokovic but all “anti-vaxxers” and “conspiracy theorists”, calling the Serbian a “conspiracy super-spreader”. They have another blaming his “arrogance for his downfall”.

The Daily Mail ran a story headlined: “Welcome to the Wacky World of Novak Djokovic… and meet his equally wacky wife!”, and two more opinion pieces claiming his arrogance has “trashed his reputation” and calling him “a loser”.

The Guardian‘s Australian Political Correspondent Sarah Martin defends the decision and jokingly refers to it as a “no dickheads” immigration policy, attacking Djokovic’s “anti-science god complex” and calling him an “all-round jerk”.

The childish name-calling just doesn’t end. Even his fellow players are sticking the boot in.

Stefanos Tsitsipas attacked Djokovic for attempting to “play by his own rules”, adding “A very small minority chose to follow their own way. It makes the majority look like they are all fools”, which is at least true, but not in the way he means it.

Spanish star Rafael Nadal said Djokovic should just follow the rules like everyone else, perhaps flashing the kind of attitude which allowed a fascist dictator to stay in power in his country for 40 years.

Some players, at least, have come to Djokovic’s defense, including Australia’s own Nick Kyrgios, who has said he is “ashamed” of the way Australia has handled the situation and chastised other players for not showing solidarity with Djokovic.

But why is this happening? Why are they trying to punish such a public figure, and why now?

Well, firstly, I’m not sure it is about punishing Djokovic, and not just because getting to leave Australia is an odd thing to be considered any kind of punishment these days.

Rather, it’s about the performance of punishing him. It’s about making an example of him. Not so much preventing him from playing, as much as denying him a platform.

The Australian government basically admits that in their legal justification for cancelling the visa.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Djokovic had been barred from entry for “breaching the rules…it’s as simple as that.” But he is either mistaken or lying, as he directly contradicts the case presented to the appeal court by the government.

Yes, the visa was first cancelled on a technicality about incorrect information but, a judge overruled that decision, allowing Djokovic to enter the country.

That’s when Immigration Minister Alex Hawke stepped in to personally revoke the visa under section 133 of the Immigration Act 1958.

Under this (worryingly vague) legislation, the Immigration Minister is granted the power to cancel any visa at all, if:

the Minister is satisfied that it would be in the public interest to cancel the visa.

This was the argument put to the appeals court, that the minister can expel anyone, for anything, if he believes it to be in the best interests of the public.

That’s public interest, NOT public health.

Hawke admits in his written statement that Djokovic presents a “negligible risk of Covid19 infection” to those around him. So it’s nothing to do with protecting people from infection or stopping the spread of the virus.

Public statements from officials suggest that they consider any “anti-vaxxer” to be a threat to the public interest by undermining the vaccination programme. Thus they can justify barring entry to Djokovic (or, it should be said, any other “anti-vaxxer”) under the guise of “public interest”.

It’s about control, it almost always is.

In short, the government are scared that Djokovic’s very presence in the country is a threat to their neo-fascist lockdown.

If you look closely at the media messaging, there’s more than a little fear behind the wall of abuse and mockery.

Article after article is at pains to point out that “the majority of normal Australians want the Joker gone”, or some variation on that sentiment. Somewhat desperately selling the line that nobody agrees with, or supports, Djokovic’s position.

A statement which is given the lie by the regular huge protests taking place all across Australia’s major cities (like this one, just this weekend, in Sydney).

The Australian government are worried they’ve turned their country into a powder keg of public resentment, and that the slightest social spark could set it off. Increasing the size of the (already huge) protests against the lockdowns and vaccine mandates, maybe even tipping the country into full-blown chaos.

One of the Spectator articles mentions that Australians have been living in a “police state” for two years, and then vaguely references the subsequent public anger, even whilst attempting to downplay it, misrepresent its cause, and turn it against the unvaccinated.

Australia has fallen. Peace, prosperity and freedom have been sacrificed on the altar of “safety”, and Covid “vaccination” has become a quasi-religious rite in their country, even more so than the rest of the world.

As such, the unvaccinated are slandered, punished, threatened and othered at every turn. Locked down, locked up and locked out.

Can you only imagine what could happen if people found out it was all for nothing? Or that the heaven-sent vaccines aren’t the magical solution to all that ails us?

In this kind of political climate they simply can’t afford to have an “anti-vaxxer” on national television, healthy and athletic and winning championships against a field of vaccinated rivals.

Especially when three vaccinated players have already dropped out with “breathing difficulties”

Before anyone accuses me of a surfeit of cynicism, let’s review the actual words of Alex Hawke from the appeal procedure [our emphasis]:

I consider that Mr Djokovic’s ongoing presence in Australia may lead to an increase in anti-vaccination sentiment generated in the Australian community, potentially leading to an increase in civil unrest of the kind previously experienced in Australia

Elsewhere Djokovic is described as a “talisman of a community of anti-vaccine sentiment”.

This kind of brutal treatment of publicly unvaccinated famous faces will likely only intensify. It’s already spreading from country to country, with France announcing Djokovic will not be allowed to defend his French Open title unless he gets vaccinated.

It seems pretty clear that the public shaming of Djokovic is a power-play to secure what they perceive as their own tenuous grip on the narrative, one that could have far-reaching consequences moving forward.

Consider, Djokovic is not barred from entry just for being unvaccinated, but also because he has publicly spoken out against vaccination.

Australia is now not only requiring you be “fully vaccinated” to enter the country, but has barred someone for even expressing anti-vaccine sentiment.

It’s no longer enough to conform by action, you must now conform by speech.

Next is thought, but even they would never try to legislate against that…right? (read more)

Australia Is Safe Again From Mortal Danger

Not Since Imperial Japan Have They Been So Threatened Down Under

Achtung Regeln!
Rules are rules and today the brave people of Australia should be thankful the Australian government in all its wisdom is willing to enforce those rational and carefully thought out rules against a mortal danger that had infiltrated their nation and threated their compliant populace as a walking vector of negligence and disobedience.

Not since Imperial Japan threatened to invade the continental former penal colony have the courageous people of Australia been so close to existential devastation. Not since they handed over their arms to the government in 1996 because the government in all its insight and wisdom told them it was for their own safety have they been so close to grave danger and existential harm.

Who does this Serbian super spreader think he is getting his visa approved before his journey and showing up without the vaccine, the one and only effective miracle to keep all Australians safe? The arrogance of a man to think the rules do not apply to him just because he’s seen hundreds of athletes dropping dead by coincidence and dares mistake it for the safe and noble vaccine. How dare he!

How dare he lie on his visa application form. He was seen on social media with the sniffles in Spain on December 16 with other people and the impertinence to lower his mask for a photo shoot, then travelled with the sniffles and maybe even a headache to Serbia to spend Christmas with family and back to Spain again! How many people did he endanger with his traveling sniffles antics? And he has the audacity to think he can get away with it and endanger an entire continent just because he’s the nine time champion of their largest sporting event and has brought the nation hundreds of millions of dollars over the years. No man is above the servitude and obedience of the common Australian, certainly not a Serbian Sniffles Super Spreader who threatens to overturn the highly effective zero covid policy the nation has embraced to great success!

The Australian immigration minister canceled his visa after it was approved while he was abroad to make a political example out of the heretic after he landed on the grounds that the Serb’s presence in Australia might be a risk to the health and "good order" of the Australian public and "may be counterproductive to efforts at vaccination by others in Australia." Amen minister. No sane country can have their asylees recognize their status as trapped in the Cuckoo’s nest of a continent with the presence of a foreign virus among the clean and healthy subservient population, 92% of who did “their duty” for “the common good”. It would not be able to maintain “good order” if people recognized their status as slaves, mentally and physically to the state.

Medication time gentlemen. Medication time. Time for your medication.

Mr. McMurphy your medication.

What’s in the horse pill?

It’s just medicine, it’s good for you.

Yeah, well I don’t like the idea of taking something if I don’t know what it is.

Sportsball Philosophers
In the world of sportsball reporters are the most astute and prescient in their analysis of everything. This is due to their erudite mind required for understanding the complex intricacies of sportsball games, skills, strategies and brinksmanship. The sportsball reporter is also a deep thinker, a kind of sportsball philosopher who provides us with the wisdom and insight necessary to understand the world today.

As this sportsball philospher has pointed out the dangerous indolence of a selfish sportsball star is a sign that these stars continue to fail us all. We look to the sportsball stars around us for guidance and wisdom and truth and then they go and do things like travel with the sniffles and lower their paper mask for photo ops and it’s so disconcerting for our world already so bereft of true leadership. Thankfully there are some brave and inspiring sportsballers still out there to show us the way.

We must take a moment to pay homage to the evil Serbian super spreader’s number one challenger Raphael Nadal. The daring Spaniard really showed why he’s Jesse Owens of sports today by bravely standing with the Australian government against the disgusting and dangerous Serb. “If he follows the rules, gets vaccinated, he has no problems,” said the Spaniard in all his brilliant insight. We know the bravest and most admired sportsballers of any era are always the ones who obey and do what they are told without asking any questions and Nadal is just another of these sportsballers to be cherished. He’s really the Muhammed Ali of our times.

Safety Demands Obedience
As an entire continent and millions of other critical thinkers around the world celebrate this historic victory over bodily autonomy and free choice, we must remember that safety is above all else the common goal we should all have in considering choices in life, not just our own safety, but the safety and feelings of others we’ve never met and never will meet. And as we all know, the only entity in the world with the ability to determine accurately what constitutes safety for all is the state. If the state demands that people do something in the name of safety they had better obey. If the state demands that people dispense with their ideas of liberty and autonomy in the name of safety and “good order”, it’s imperative that they obey.

When a foreigner enters the safe obedient social body they threaten to disrupt the “good order” of things with their selfish ideas and notions that are archaic and dangerous and they must be dealt with accordingly. Deportation if they’re lucky. Quarantine camps if necessary. A three year travel ban just to be safe. They must obey because safety demands it!

What a Ballclub!
The Serbian super spreader showed Australia that they are volunteers who have voluntarily committed themselves to a continental insane asylum where they must be medicated, subdued, restrained, isolated and are only allowed to roam within the confines determined by authorities or risk punishment, greater isolation, imprisonment or worse.

Novax Djokovic was really Randal Patrick McMurphy who entered this insane world where his disobedience to authority and refusal to accept their terms of madness was the real threat, and the cold passive aggressive government (Nurse Ratched) was going to make an example out of him. They approved his visa and let him come just for this purpose. His mere existence, his presence as an individual free thinker who refused to submit to medication time was a threat to the population of inmates who might see in him a source of liberation from their own mental and physical chains, the real threat to “good order”. And throughout history nothing is more dangerous than a source of liberation with the potential to inspire millions of prisoners to revolt against the government that rules without its consent.

Djokovic Actually the Big Winner in Australia—and So Are We

Having lost his bid this time for that record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title and been ejected from Australia,
Novak Djokovic probably wasn’t feeling his best on the 15-hour flight from Sydney to Dubai, but in the long run, he will emerge the big victor in his duel with the Australian government.

He’s already something of a hero to many. According to the BBC, that flight was the most tracked on FlightRadar.

“Thousands of people are watching the player’s journey across Australia towards Dubai.”

How often does that happen?

I should really have titled this piece “Djokovic Defeats Australia Six-Love,” even though the Serb committed a few double faults himself along the way. Everyone does. “6-0 in favor of Novak” will be history’s ultimate score for what just transpired in Melbourne.

The Australian Open without Djokovic—the record nine-time winner of tournament—will have a gigantic asterisk next to it. If they persist in banning him for the supposedly required three years, the Open will have effectively been permanently tarnished as its country’s most important sporting event.

To a great extent, the idiotic (sorry to be so blunt, but it was hard to think of a more polite word that was remotely accurate) Australian officialdom have made a martyr out of Djokovic, escalating his importance beyond being the No. 1 tennis player in the world. Yes, many will still hate him, but the tide will turn inexorably because the tennis player is leading the inevitable anti-COVID curve.

Meanwhile, gripped by COVID hysteria that’s second to none—at least on a national level—Australia’s (aka Oz’s) government also literally has destroyed the reputation of their country in the process, removing it from millions of vacation bucket lists.

Who would want to go there and risk who-knows-what? If they can do it to one of greatest athletes in the world, they can do it to anyone. And they do.

Ironically, while they are acting in this bizarre manner, the vaccines are facing more global skepticism than ever from scientists, doctors, and tellingly, front-line nurses who witness all manner of disasters. Reports on the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS) are mounting and even the World Health Organization (WHO), normally communist China’s best friend, is advising against the booster.

The powers that be in Oz appear unaffected by this trend or, probably more exactly, terrified of it. The more it’s shown to be true that the vaccines are more dangerous than they are helpful for most people (mRNA inventor Dr. Robert Malone says no one under 65 should take one), the more they look like fools, totalitarian fools at that, who incarcerate people in the most intolerable conditions for exercising what should be, in a democracy, their rights.

And those miserable conditions have been publicized worldwide now, from the ramshackle COVID quarantine constructs like Quonset huts out of World War II to the Park Hotel where Djokovic was housed with the other unvaccinated as if they were lepers.

In many ways, these conditions resemble those in which our own alleged Jan. 6 “insurrectionists” are incarcerated.

Australia’s schizoid and sadistic treatment of Djokovic became just another symbol of this multinational mess. But it could mark its opera bouffe apotheosis.

That’s why I agree with Richard Fernandez of the Belmont Club, a Sydney resident and old friend of mine, that a tremendous backlash is brewing in Oz and, I would certainly add, here in the United States as well, once COVID is over.

And, as I wrote earlier and many others have surmised, the Omicron variant is heralding that end, behaving as most viruses do at the end of a pandemic, weakening as it becomes more communicative. Soon enough it will be another irritation we must face, but rarely a fatal one.

The problem engendered by this is that much of the leadership in Canberra and Washington will be very reluctant to let go of it.

We see that all around us, particularly in the [illegitimate] Biden administration, which clings to COVID-19 just as Obama claimed conservatives clung to their guns and religion, only more so.

Resistance, however, is building. What will be its watchword? Who will be the first to say “Mr. Biden, tear off that mask!”

Fernandez put the situation this way: “Already, the signs of political disillusion are plain to see, from Joe Biden’s collapse in the polls, the SCOTUS rejection of his vaccine mandate, Boris Johnson’s slipping hold on power to Novak Djokovic’s amazing one-man stand against Australia’s vaccine visa policy: a worldwide storm is brewing and it will break over the political scene in 2022.”

That last is hard to deny if you were watching the amazing crowd at the Trump Rally in Florence, Arizona, the other night.

As for Novak Djokovic, I’m a bigger fan than I ever was. (read more)

THE FALL OF THE LEFT III

The Last Days of the Covidian Cult

This isn’t going to be pretty, folks. The downfall of a death cult rarely is. There is going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth, incoherent fanatical jabbering, mass deleting of embarrassing tweets.

There’s going to be a veritable tsunami of desperate rationalizing, strenuous denying, shameless blame-shifting, and other forms of ass-covering, as suddenly former Covidian Cult members make a last-minute break for the jungle before the fully-vaxxed-and-boosted “Safe and Effective Kool-Aid” servers get to them.

Yes, that’s right, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the official Covid narrative is finally falling apart, or is being hastily disassembled, or historically revised, right before our eyes.

The “experts” and “authorities” are finally acknowledging that the “Covid deaths” and “hospitalization” statistics are artificially inflated and totally unreliable (which they have been from the very beginning), and they are admitting that their miracle “vaccines” don’t work (unless you change the definition of the word “vaccine”), and that they have killed a few peopleor maybe more than a few people, and that lockdowns were probably “a serious mistake.”

I am not going to bother with further citations. You can surf the Internet as well as I can.

The point is, the “Apocalyptic Pandemic” PSYOP has reached its expiration date. After almost two years of mass hysteria over a virus that causes mild-to-moderate common-cold or flu-like symptoms (or absolutely no symptoms whatsoever) in about 95% of the infected and the overall infection fatality rate of which is approximately 0.1% to 0.5%, people’s nerves are shot.

We are all exhausted. Even the Covidian cultists are exhausted. And they are starting to abandon the cult en masse.

It was always mostly just a matter of time. As Klaus Schwab said:

the pandemic represent[ed] a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”

It isn’t over, but that window is closing, and our world has not been “reimagined” and “reset,” not irrevocably, not just yet. Clearly, GloboCap underestimated the potential resistance to the Great Reset, and the time it would take to crush that resistance.

And now the clock is running down, and the resistance isn’t crushed … on the contrary, it is growing. And there is nothing GloboCap can do to stop it, other than go openly totalitarian, which it can’t, as that would be suicidal. As I noted in a recent column:

New Normal totalitarianism — and any global-capitalist form of totalitarianism — cannot display itself as totalitarianism, or even authoritarianism. It cannot acknowledge its political nature. In order to exist, it must not exist. Above all, it must erase its violence (the violence that all politics ultimately comes down to) and appear to us as an essentially beneficent response to a legitimate ‘global health crisis’ …”

The simulated “global health crisis” is, for all intents and purposes, over. Which means that GloboCap has screwed the pooch.

The thing is, if you intend to keep the masses whipped up into a mindless frenzy of anus-puckering paranoia over an “apocalyptic global pandemic,” at some point, you have to produce an actual apocalyptic global pandemic.

Faked statistics and propaganda will carry you for a while, but eventually people are going to need to experience something at least resembling an actual devastating worldwide plague, in reality, not just on their phones and TVs.

Also, GloboCap seriously overplayed their hand with the miracle “vaccines.” Covidian cultists really believed that the “vaccines” would protect them from infection. Epidemiology experts like Rachel Maddow assured them that they would:

Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person,” Maddow said on her show the evening of March 29, 2021. “A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them, the virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else,” she added with a shrug. “It cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to go get more people.”

And now they are all sick with…well, a cold, basically, or are “asymptomatically infected,” or whatever. And they are looking at a future in which they will have to submit to “vaccinations” and “boosters” every three or four months to keep their “compliance certificates” current, in order to be allowed to hold a job, attend a school, or eat at a restaurant, which, OK, hardcore cultists are fine with, but there are millions of people who have been complying, not because they are delusional fanatics who would wrap their children’s heads in cellophane if Anthony Fauci ordered them to, but purely out of “solidarity,” or convenience, or herd instinct, or…you know, cowardice.

Many of these people (i.e., the non-fanatics) are starting to suspect that maybe what we “tin-foil-hat-wearing, Covid-denying, anti-vax, conspiracy-theorist extremists” have been telling them for the past 22 months might not be as crazy as they originally thought.

They are back-pedaling, rationalizing, revising history, and just making up all kinds of self-serving bullshit, like how we are now in “a post-vaccine world,” or how “the Science has changed,” or how “Omicron is different,” in order to avoid being forced to admit that they’re the victims of a GloboCap PSYOP and the worldwide mass hysteria it has generated.

Which…fine, let them tell themselves whatever they need to for the sake of their vanity, or their reputations as investigative journalists, celebrity leftists, or Twitter revolutionaries.

If you think these “recovering” Covidian Cult members are ever going to publicly acknowledge all the damage they have done to society, and to people and their families, since March 2020, much less apologize for all the abuse they heaped onto those of us who have been reporting the facts … well, they’re not.

They are going to spin, equivocate, rationalize, and lie through their teeth, whatever it takes to convince themselves and their audience that, when the shit hit the fan, they didn’t click heels and go full “Good German.”

Give these people hell if you need to. I feel just as angry and betrayed as you do. But let’s not lose sight of the ultimate stakes here. Yes, the official narrative is finally crumbling, and the Covidian Cult is starting to implode, but that does not mean that this fight is over.

GloboCap and their puppets in government are not going to cancel the whole “New Normal” program, pretend the last two years never happened, and gracefully retreat to their lavish bunkers in New Zealand and their mega-yachts.

Totalitarian movements and death cults do not typically go down gracefully. They usually go down in a gratuitous orgy of wanton, nihilistic violence as the cult or movement desperately attempts to maintain its hold over its wavering members and defend itself from encroaching reality. And that is where we are at the moment…or where we are going to be very shortly.

Cities, states, and countries around the world are pushing ahead with implementing the New Normal biosecurity society, despite the fact that there is no longer any plausible justification for it. Austria is going ahead with forced “vaccination.” Germany ispreparing to do the same. France is rolling out a national segregation system  to punish “the Unvaccinated.” Greece is fining “unvaccinated” pensioners. Australia is operating “quarantine camps.”

Scotland. Italy. Spain. The Netherlands. New York City. San Francisco. Toronto. The list goes on, and on, and on.

I don’t know what is going to happen. I’m not an oracle. I’m just a satirist. But we are getting dangerously close to the point where GloboCap will need to go full-blown fascist if they want to finish what they started.

If that happens, things are going to get very ugly.

I know, things are already ugly, but I’m talking a whole different kind of ugly. Think Jonestown, or Hitler’s final days in the bunker, or the last few months of the Manson Family.

That is what happens to totalitarian movements and death cults once the spell is broken and their official narratives fall apart. When they go down, they try to take the whole world with them.

I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping we can avoid that. From what I have heard and read, it isn’t much fun. (read more)

Ominous: 28 House Democrats Not Running For Reelection in 2022

“Democrats hope to defend their razor-thin majority in the House in the midterms, amid a rough political climate.”

Nancy Pelosi’s fragile majority in the House of Representatives just keeps getting smaller as we approach the 2022 midterms.

As of last week, 26 Democrats had announced their retirements ahead of the 2022 midterms. Now there are 28.

Paul Steinhauser reports at
FOX News:

House Democrat exit list grows to 28 as Rhode Island’s Langevin, California’s McNerney, announce retirements

Two more House Democrats – Reps. Jim Langevin of Rhode Island and Jerry McNerney of California – announced on Tuesday that they won’t seek reelection in this year’s midterm elections.

The announcements from the two lawmakers brings to 28 the number of Democrats in the chamber who are retiring after the current term or seeking another elective office in November.

Democrats hope to defend their razor-thin majority in the House in the midterms, amid a rough political climate. The GOP needs a net gain of just five seats in the 435-member chamber next year to regain the House majority it lost to the Democrats in the 2018 elections.

Langevin, the first quadriplegic to serve in Congress, said in a video statement that “after serving the people of Rhode Island for over 36 years, including 11 terms and nearly 22 years in Congress, today I am announcing that I will not be a candidate for elective office this November.”…

The 70-year-old McNerney – a Stockton, California Democrat who since 2007 has represented a heavily blue district in the state’s vast Central Valley – took to Twitter to announce “that I will not seek reelection in California’s newly created 9th Congressional District.”

The Left Controls Almost Everything, So Why Are They So Afraid?

Perhaps they know their strength is something of a charade, it’s unstable, it’s not organic, it’s coerced. When it collapses, they fear it will collapse like a house of cards.

[...] I found myself wondering, what is the left so afraid of?

They control virtually everything: The presidency, Congress, Higher Education, lower education, professional schools and organizations, Hollywood and the entertainment industry, Big Tech and every substantial social media platform, all the large mainstream broadcast, digital, and print media with the exception of News Corp. entities, the HR department of almost every major corporation and many of the boardrooms, the permanent federal bureaucracy, the Joint Chiefs and senior military leadership, the FBI and DOJ, and I could go on and on.

It’s hard to think of any major national institution the left doesn’t control, except maybe the U.S. Supreme Court depending on which side of the bed Roberts and Kavanaugh wake up that morning. Which is why they want to symbolically blow it up through court packing, if they could.

It’s hard to imagine it ending. I’ve written many times about the dread of living with the loss of institutions. It’s something only people in the center or right-of-center have to think about. So many of us don’t see a way out.

What is the left so afraid of at their moment of near total control? Do they know something we don’t?

For one, there are cracks in the armor. They don’t control all the states, and that is a warning to them. The Free State of Florida is thriving, people are fleeing blue states for red states. People yearning to be free scares them. The parents movement scares them, because it’s a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, cross-party movement to reclaim the children. Internet platforms not under their control scare them. People who disagree with them and refuse to be silenced scare them. At some point, it can’t be contained.

Like the animals that sense a tsunami coming long before it’s visible and run to higher ground, they feel it coming. It’s not a guarantee, but just the thought of it is creating panic.

Perhaps they know their strength is something of a charade, it’s unstable, it’s not organic, it’s coerced. When it collapses, they fear it will collapse like a house of cards. (read more)

California weighing proposal that could double its taxes

The bill could increase taxes by roughly $12,250 per household

California lawmakers unveiled a new bill at the beginning of the year that would establish a single-payer health care system [including illegal aliens] – an ambitious plan that would be funded by nearly doubling the state's already-high taxes.

A new analysis from the Tax Foundation, a non-partisan group that generally advocates for lower taxes, found that the proposed constitutional amendment would increase taxes by roughly $12,250 per household in order to fund the first-of-its-kind health care system. In all, the tax increases are designed to raise an additional $163 billion per year, which is more than California raised in total tax revenue any year before the pandemic.

The proposal includes three main revenue raisers, according to Jared Walczak, a fellow at the Tax Foundation: Higher income taxes on wealthy Americans, a payroll tax on certain employees' wages for large companies, and a new gross receipts tax.

Under the bill, the top marginal rate on wage income would soar to 18.05% – well above the median top marginal rate of 5.3% and the state's existing rate of 12.3%. There would be an 18-bracket system, with higher taxes kicking in for individuals earning more than $149,509.The highest rate would apply to those who earn more than $2,484,121.(read more)

Leftists have a cow over Tucker Carlson's observations about Nancy Pelosi's strange new appearance

House speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently has had some plastic surgery.

It didn't go well.

Tucker Carlson was on the scene to state what everyone was thinking:


The left did not take it well.

Some creature at the Huffington Post put out this outraged headline:

Tucker Carlson Sinks To New Low With Attack On Nancy Pelosi's Appearance

The Twitter mob sprang into action, too.  MEAWW has a summary of the tweets:

One user slammed, "In search of a new low on a nightly basis, Tucker Carlson says that Nancy Pelosi looks like Michael Jackson." One person replied, "I would love to see both the Jackson family and Nancy Pelosi take you to court for this." Another responded, "I'll be the first to say that Nancy Pelosi is a dishonest, manipulative (insert word). But this is in poor taste, even for you bro. Resorting to physical appearance is lame af." One trolled, "Calling Tucker Carlson’s show a news program is about as absurd as suggesting Nancy Pelosi is Michael Jackson."

It was idiocy because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was not born with those unnatural looks — she chose to have those looks, through an unusual combination of wealth gained while in office and the money from it to pay for plastic surgery.

No getting older gracefully for her.  No "women can be attractive at any age," as the former supermodel Polina Porizhkova has favorably been received as declaring.  Just weird status-symbol plastic surgery, the kind that very wealthy women get to impress their social-X-ray friends out on the Pacific Heights cocktail circuit. 

No, it doesn't make her look better, but in her circles, who cares?  It isn't actually about looks.  It's about "hain't she got money to do it?"  That's what this kind of plastic surgery at this age projects: a sort of flinging of status symbols into the faces of the masses, to underline that she's of a very different class from the groundlings she claims to represent.

It's of a piece with her maskless visit to the Union Street beauty salon that caused such scandal, done as it was at the height of her party's COVID lockdowns.

Nancy does her part to support the spas, plastic surgeons, and artisan ice cream makers for herself while impoverishing the rest of us through inflation and high taxes to ensure that we never dare have the same.  And she'd like you to know, through the use of her face, as it were.

The picture we have now from this combination is a Dorian Gray–like expression of her true character.

There's not much to be done about people like this, but Tucker used his monologue to deal with Pelosi through the highly effective instrument of ridicule.

That was what outraged the HuffPo writer the most:

The star cable TV personality claimed Pelosi was actually the late singer Michael Jackson. Teeing up his "joke," Carlson told viewers they would have "had the shock of your life" to see the entertainer on CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

"Now let's be clear, this wasn't a video of Michael Jackson performing his hit songs of the 1990s," said Carlson. "This appeared to be a living version of the international pop star that news reports claimed died of a drug OD more than a dozen years ago. And yet despite those claims there he was, fully, undeniably Michael Jackson talking on television. How can that be? Honestly, we have no idea. We're not theologians here. This is merely a news program. We can only show you what we saw. Here it is."

...and...

"See? Michael Jackson. That was him," Carlson commented after the clip. "No 'Billie Jean.' Apparently, he's given up singing and is telling lies about politics. Same man. If you've ever seen Michael Jackson, you cannot forget the face — though admittedly, he's had a lot of work done since we saw him last."

Oh, the horror.  As if the left never made fun of people's looks who couldn't help it, and then pioneered that as a standard mode of leftist argument.

Ridicule, though, of this kind that Tucker engaged in, was what Tom Wolfe used to do — he specially targeted the status-seekers and social X-rays and other ostentatious displayers of wealth in the era when conspicuous consumption takes on disguised forms but nevertheless is there.  Tucker made fun of it through his Michael Jackson comparison.

Rather than recognize that, for the Wolfean comic technique that it was and tipping its hat to him for his skill, they took the whole thing literally, sliding down to just where Tucker wanted them, flailing in the mud and spewing rage at Tucker's dreadful social faux pas and tasteless attacks on looks.

Big deal.  Pelosi knew what she was doing with that weird plastic surgery show.  The reality is, Tucker did, too.

Crumbling Narratives Leave the Ruling Class with Everything to Fear

Here's what our COVID-1984 authoritarians want: they seek to use pandemics, wars, uncontrolled immigration, doomsday climate predictions, and "woke" cultural Marxism to keep people in a constant state of fear, divided among themselves, and willing to hand over their freedoms for evaporative promises of protection.  "Protection" in this racket means survival but not lifeequity but not fairness, financial handouts but not prosperity, and politically correct narratives but no truth.

This last point deserves emphasis.  The powers that be — the central bankers, global financial elites, corporate propagandists, and political aristocrats — have given up on any notion of truth.  They neither pursue it objectively nor desire to discover it for philosophical or spiritual elevation.  Truth, to them, is too dangerous because it cannot be controlled by men with power.  So they murdered it and molded a monster out of clay they affectionately call their narrative.  Then, having no respect for the dead or remorse for their deed, they chose to disguise their monstrous narratives with masks made from truth's likeness.

Science is venerated as the apotheosis of objectivity, even as those with power dictate what official science can say, expunging dissenting scientific opinions from the public domain by either starving grant-dependent scientists into submission or outright censoring their work.  Like a tribe of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers dancing around a fire and praying to the moon, the powers that be pretend to be obedient and humble disciples of science's objective purity by chanting together, "We must follow the science wherever it goes."  In practice, however, they know exactly where the science will go because they are the ones paying for it to dance to the beat they alone provide.  If science is controlled by a global oligarchy using it for personal wealth and power, then "trust the science" really means "trust the authoritarians."  It really is that simple.

With neither truth nor the objective pursuit of science playing any part in their scheming, the political and financial 1% of the 1% are beholden to no one and nothing — not to God, reason, rationality, logic, or principle — leaving them to become their own highest powers entitled to create and destroy the world as they see fit.  We do not have to wait for the rollout of augmented and virtual realities being created by technocrats to further enslave the masses to understand that the "elites" who have controlled our reality since WWII play deadly games all the time — against each other, among nation-states, among whole continents, but most importantly between themselves and everybody else on planet Earth.  

Can Russia hawks start a war in Europe over Ukraine?  Can the ruling Uniparty in America effectively flood the United States with so much unlawful immigration and unchecked voter fraud that the voices of individual Americans become drowned out?  Can the "free-traders" continue three decades of middle-class wealth destruction and blue-collar job offshoring by further selling to the destitute the wondrous benefits of their snake oil made from cheap Chinese imports and middle-American poverty?  What's at stake?  Oh, only lives — those of soldiers who will be tasked to fight wars abroad triggered for the wrong reasons; those of innocent civilians who become collateral damage to an illegal U.S. policy that has aided and abetted the exponential rise of narco-terrorism, sex trafficking, and other society-killing crimes flowing effortlessly across an unprotected southern border; and, of course, those of entire generations of lost Americans, whose happiness and stability were sacrificed for the swelling stock portfolios of globalist "free-traders," as well as the crumbling towns across America those generations still call home today.  What are lives, though, to a ruling class that celebrates the narrative and wears truth as Buffalo Bill would a skin suit?  For them, it's all just a game.  For the people who have fallen victim to these über-1% games, however, it has all become quite personal.

I think it is no exaggeration to say that a growing number of people in America, the West, and around the globe, generally, are looking around at what the "elite" have wrought these last seventy-five years and do not like what they see.  The distinction between "free" and "controlled" countries is disappearing as governments expand their powers at the expense of individual  rights and liberties.  Regulation, central banking, and crony capitalism have worked together to concentrate wealth into the hands of ever fewer people and companies while preventing the unadulterated operation of truly free markets.  National histories and cultures are being destroyed so globalists can reorder the world according to a "Great Reset" that gives them absolute power and total control.  And political "leaders" are all parroting the same "build back better" nonsense when what they mean to build back is a planet where the 1% of the 1% can tighten its grip around everyone else.  If any of their members espoused truth instead of narrative, they would admit that they are building a great machine, whereby all of humanity except for the "elite" can be treated as nothing more than 1s and 0s; inputs and outputs; expendable, exchangeable, nameless, and meaningless resources, widgets, or cogs.

This much is clear: government debt and central bank money-printing cannot continue much longer.  System breakdown, triggered by runaway inflation, the implosion of asset values, or the death knell for fiat currency, means that a political and social construct built by "elites" for their own wealth, power, and amusement will spiral wildly beyond their control.  Revolutions begin this way.  Entire epochs in human history begin this way.  New ideas, paradigms, and civilizations arise as the old ones corrode, cavitate, and collapse.  I have no sympathy for the 1% of the 1% or the numerous lies they tell daily in order to build back a totalitarian system that enfeebles us while deifying them, but I will say this: if you were part of such a small part of the world's population, and you understood that drastic social change lay just ahead, perhaps you, too, would do everything you could to shackle the 99.99% with the chains of division, economic subsistence, rolling pandemics of fear, and bio-digital enslavement before the many awaken to the reality that the few long ago swapped truth for nothing more than control.

I think Patrick Rothfuss got it right when he warned, "There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man."  What happens as more and more people discover that all of the elites' dancing under the light of the moon these last few decades has really been about worshiping narratives for control and nothing more?  What happens when that light, like all their other "noble lies," dies out?  I think then we will experience what comes when all three great fears are unleashed at once — a monumental storm washing away "elite" corruption and power, the rage of long quiet and civilized men, and a period of unavoidable darkness that must exist before the next new moon can rise.  Considering how afraid the ruling class seems to be of losing power over the world, somebody with a little wisdom has surely been whispering in their ears about the future.

One certainty is now irrefutable: far from being at the end of history, we are witnessing what can only be described as the beginning of history's next chapter. (read more)

Vaccine Mandate for Cross Border Trucking Now in Effect, Mandate for Domestic Trucking Begins in a Week, Prepare Your Affairs Accordingly

The cross border vaccine mandate for truckers in/out of Canada is now in effect.  The U.S. vaccine mandate takes effect on January 22nd.

It will take a few days to see the consequences, but there will be consequences.

Keep in mind, any impact is taking place in a supply chain system that is already tenuous and unstable at best.  A small disruption that may have been minimally significant against a fully operational supply chain, is more likely to be a much bigger disruption in a supply chain that is already under a severe amount of demand side stress.  Somewhere in the range of 16,000 to 38,000 daily loads are likely to be impacted.

When questioned about this, Canadian Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic Leblanc says the trucking industry “has had adequate time to prepare for this.”  Keep in mind, the mandate was announced 45 days ago (November 30th).  According to the Canadian government, changing the structural rules for all the logistics and commerce in cross border shipping, 45 days is enough notice. WATCH

CANADA – […] “I think you probably won’t see that movement … that the government’s looking for,” retail expert Bruce Winder told CTV News Channel on Saturday when asked if the effort will encourage truckers to get vaccinated.

[…]  The mandate throws a “major wrench” in the Canadian and North American supply chains, he added, with grocers, food producers, the auto parts industry and building materials among the sectors expected to be most affected.

“I really hope that we’re not at the stage where you see food insecurity, where you’re actually going to grocery stores and there’s nothing on the shelf,” Winder said.  “That could be the worst-case scenario.”

Mike Millian, president of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada, told CTV News Channel on Saturday that there were as many 23,000 vacancies at the end of the third quarter of 2021, with his group’s own studies showing that roughly 20 per cent of Canadian truck drivers operating across the border are unvaccinated.

[…] “If we remove a fifth of that workforce, we’re going to see shortages on shelves and we’re going to see inflation of prices, because the cost to bring this stuff here is going to go up.”  (read more)

The truth is no one knows how bad the disruption will be.  What we do know is that there will be disruption, and there is no infrastructure for a level of rig-switching at the border crossing region that could accommodate changing rigs, drop-offs and/or pick-ups or driver transfers on the scale that is being discussed.   The logistics here are a total mess.

Keep your fingers crossed, but prepare for FUBAR.

Richard Feynman, “Learn from science that you must doubt the experts. As a matter of fact, I can also define science another way: Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.”

Friedrich Nietzsche, “The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower, “Here in America, we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels – men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.”

H. L. Mencken, “All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.”
