Why do I agree with this left wing faggot?

The question is posed as obnoxiously as I can. Sorry. The real point is that the left/right political divide is increasingly irrelevant. I don’t care  very much  about disagreements I may have with Glenn Greenwald. I find myself agreeing with him about far more than I disagree, and that the agreements in our analysis matter far more. The issues have changed.   The previous left/right divisions in society are largely irrelevant. Who cares about how much of our money the state should absorb, when the issues seems to centre around malignant authoritarian governments that hate us and seek to lower our living standards through energy and food starvation? (Nitrogen fertilizer restrictions, pipeline shutdowns, carbon taxes).

Greenwald asks the right questions. How can you vote for Obama and then for Trump and feel no contradiction? It is because previous left/right policy differences are no longer pertinent. People are voting for outsiders who appear to share their contempt for the new governing classes. The globalistic, de-industrializing elites are the common enemy of left and right. Or people vote left and right at various times to express their contempt for the governing classes for how they are being treated.

In whose interests is society being divided by race, sexual orientation, and ethnicity? Two completely different realities are characterizing US politics: one the one side, white people are threatening to impose white supremacist government; on the other, Latino and other non-white voters are flocking to the Republicans. You know who threatens the Establishment by who is demonized.

Hence Tucker Carlson is now enemy #1.

A fascinating discussion ensues between Nick Gillespie and Glenn Greenwald, which worth your attention. Lots of forbidden topics are discussed.

At minute 57 they turn to the subject of control of speech on the Internet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The anti-human agenda is manifested

I said it yesterday and Neil Oliver says it today: the Greenies (if that is the right label for this blob) are pursuing an anti-human agenda. Farming is the next big target, reduction of food supply by deliberate destructive policy is the means. Time was when you had to extrapolate a little from intention to policy; now the policy is becoming increasingly obvious. Your breathing is problem, your food choices are a problem. you are the problem, and your elimination is the solution. Scratch an ecologue, and you find an exterminationist close to the surface.

Nitrogen oxide has become a greenhouse gas – policy to follow

 

Canada is heading in the direction of Holland. The latest turn is to blame nitrogen for climate change. Forced reductions of nitrogen outputs caused the Dutch farmers’ revolt. Now the Canadian Agriculture minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau has announced plans to reduce fertilizer usage.

The Toronto Sun says

“The federal government is looking to impose a requirement to reduce nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizers saying it is a greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. While the Trudeau government says they want a 30% reduction in emissions, not fertilizer, farm producer groups say that at this point, reducing nitrous oxide emissions can’t be done without reducing fertilizer use….

The Trudeau government is demanding an absolute reduction in emissions, which farmers say will result in less food being produced at a time when the world can ill afford it…

Farm groups, like the Western Canadian Wheat Growers, have said the federal plan will reduce crop output, reduce income for farm families and increase food prices in Canadian grocery stores.

While [agriculture] ministers Thompson, Horner and Marit all ran successful farming and ranching operations before entering politics, Bibeau was an international development bureaucrat and operated a tourism-related small business.”

 

The net direction of global warming policy is deliberate impoverishment. It intends to impoverish us through controls of fertilizer, heating fuel, electricity and every other way they can. Prevent protest by limiting travel (Covid passports) and by freezing bank accounts (truckers’ convoy). Freezing. cold, miserable, and artificially poor. Then demoralize the industrious by blaming it all on white people’s racism. Increase the number of state dependents while reducing the yeoman class of society. Lower birth rates through despair rather  than through prosperity. It seems to be working.

The exterminationist impulse behind global warming hysteria is something I have observed for along time. The net tendency of the greens  is becoming more and more apparent to ordinary people through actions taken to implement “climate” policy.

Two man made catastrophes are in lay here: global warming hysteria and COVID. Each is being used as a pretext for imprisoning and impoverishing the productive parts of the world.

 

 

Maajid Nawaz on digital currencies

My problem with alarmists like Maajid Nawaz is that they seem so reasonable and lucid in comparison to those who are droning on about, say, global warming and COVID scare awareness.  Where is the real and present danger?  In repressive state interventions, not 1.5C of warming a century.

 

 

One Canadian to be Proud Of

 

These days, there’s not much to brag about in Canada, except for those wonderful truckers. There are others, and Eva Bartlett is a young Canadian journalist reporting from the front lines, not writing hack drivel from a Toronto office.

 

She has worked in Syria and most recently, for many years, in the Donbas in Eastern Ukraine, covering the war conducted by the Kiev regime against the ethnic Russians of eastern and southern Ukraine for the past eight years.

 

Naturally, she is on the list of “enemies of Ukraine” compiled by the Zelensky regime, many of whom have already met untimely ends at the hands of the SBU, the security service of the “democratic Ukraine”.

 

You can find her on Youtube (not censored yet) and on Odysee and Rumble. I give you one example here; there are many more…[here]

The Power of Absurd People in the COVID Fiasco

 

For those of you interested in computer software and programming, don’t miss this outstanding assessment in the Daily Sceptic of the total catastrophe that were the shenanigans of the disgraced and utterly ridiculous Professor Neil Ferguson of Imperial College. (Full disclosure: it pains to say this as an alumnus of Imperial College.)

The article is an icon of clear thinking and meticulous writing. In my work experience, all the problems of software development are correctly described, and in an amusing fashion. Your reading effort will be well rewarded.

 

Also interesting is how somebody with such an appalling track record as Ferguson would ever be taken seriously by anyone with the least familiarity with computing. But, as we know, political leaders like Johnson in the UK have such an abysmal understanding of anything remotely technical, mathematical or scientific, that they look on computer models as a revelation from Heaven.

 

Saints preserve us from these charlatans and their political dupes.

What I believe is going on: COVID and the Liberals

New rules going after blockade financing an overreach, critics say | CTV News

 

I believe the following to be, roughly and in the main, true. I cannot prove some assertions but I believe them on what I think are reasonable grounds.

  1. COVID originated in a lab leak.
  2. The Wuhan virology labs were conducting gain of function research on behalf of American health agencies.
  3. It is almost certain that Fauci was involved in the approval of this research, but that is not relevant to the thrust of what I am saying.
  4. The COVID pandemic was used to accustom people to mass surveillance and visible compliance with government orders: isolation, masks (vexatious and close to useless), and lockdowns.
  5. Vaccines for COVID are neither safe nor particularly effective, though they may have had good results for the first few months, after which their effectiveness wears off rapidly.
  6. The vaccinated  transmit the disease as readily as the unvaccinated, or nearly so.
  7. Booster shots are designed to hook the general population onto the need for government-approved mandatory drug therapies (of highly dubious effectiveness).
  8. COVID’s effects are extremely age-stratified. That is, deadly at 80, serious at 60, and a bad cold you would not wish on your enemy at 50 and inconvenient at 30. Measures appropriate to an older age group are out of place for the young. This fact has not be reflected in public health responses, so that children and even infants are being vaccinated, contrary to  the medical evidence of dangers from the vaccines themselves, and the superfluousness of vaccines among the young.
  9. Year over year mortality rates across the world will show that there has been a massive death toll from all causes (excepting COVID), and that all the anecdotal evidence that far too many young and vigorous people dying of heart attacks will be shown to be part of a large scale mortality upsurge. There may also be shown a significant decline in fertility (birthrates).
  10. So that, in addition to the short duration of vaccine effectiveness, it will become evident that COVID vaccines are themselves the cause of these deaths. The implications of these facts will be opposed vigorously.
  11. Canadian government measures were designed to isolate and humiliate those who refuse the vaccines. You are free to disobey them, says our Prime Minister, but you will lose your job and must be isolated from other people. These measures are vindictive acts of malice against the unvaccinated population, based on pseudo-science,
  12. To pay for the massive unemployment engendered by lockdowns, governments printed billions  of dollars to pay for the emergency measures they devised.
  13. Inflation has been the inevitable result of too much money pursuing too limited investment opportunities.
  14. Coincidentally, and for reasons dissociated from COVID, but accelerated by the responses to the pandemic, we are experiencing a massive transfer of wealth upward from the 99% to the 1% and further concentrations of wealth from the 1% to the 0.1% of society.
  15. Our governments and public health authorities are acting in a way that is best explained by active malignance towards the general population, and not merely incompetence.
  16. This is especially so in Trudeau’s Canada, where the Liberals continue to engage in all sorts of measures to denigrate English Canada with fantastic contrivances like Indian residential school death tolls, maligning patriotic expressions of revolt like the trucker’s convoy, and generally fabulating the existence of  right wing white male extremism as a general excuse for repressive measures. I would add the deliberate demoralization of the armed forces by means of accusations and dismissals for sexual impropriety.
  17. Government in western countries, and particularly in Canada, are intent on passing legislation controlling what is said and who sees what on the Internet, by means of massive expansion of regulatory authority over private communications (viz, Bills c-11, C-18, on line harms Act, subsidies for newspapers,) to keep the press compliant and the people quiescent.

Consequently, I realized last night why Pierre Poilievre was going to be the next leader of the Conservatives, and quite possibly the leader of the country. His theme, which he expressed from the moment the leadership race started, was to “take back the power.”

I realized that if I, establishmentarian and patriot as I am, had reached this stage of concern for the country, then the relevant political choices lay between Pierre Poilievre, the official Conservative, and Mad Max Bernier of the even  more disenchanted Freedom Party.

I will be thought nutcase by those still in the grips of the Establishment Laurentian view. Yet as Orwell says, sometimes the hardest thing to do is to see what is plainly before our eyes. To this observer, the current Trudeau government has gone beyond total incompetence into malignance. I want a divorce from these people. I think they are evil, not just bad in the usual human way that people can be.

 

 

Machiavelli

One fine day in the early 1500s, a retired public servant, lately employed by the Florentine Republic, and out of power because of the return of the Medicis, went up into his chamber and sat down and wrote The Prince, thereby inventing political science. He had been the equivalent of Secretary to Cabinet and Clerk of the Privy Council in the Florentine Republic. He personally had known the Holy Roman Emperor, the King or France, and the Pope in the course of his diplomatic travels. A man of many parts.

Here is a serious and deeply well-educated lecture by a British savant, Quentin Skinner, on the subject of Machiavelli. You will absorb it to your benefit. Politics is about outcomes.
