I "like" this in the most horrible and ironic sense. What an awful world we are marching into, again, appearing to have learned nothing from history.

I'm beginning to think the wrong people have learned *too* much from history.

Good point - maybe they're viewing it as an instruction manual instead of a warning.

Just as Hitler learned from the government's policies towards indigenous peoples in the U.S.

Canada is right behind you, Germany. In fact, right now the federal government has three bills they want to pass through Parliament that would allow the government to take direct regulatory control of what we see, say and read online.

These bills would mean we will be censored, news will be hidden from us and the government will pay off the media for favourable coverage (which they have been doing throughout the covid-debacle).

We also have the Prime Minister spreading hatred and lies about the unvaxxed and forbidding us to fly domestically. That crap was just lifted temporarily while they muse about requiring the citizenry to be up-to-date on their poison shots, as two doses is now so 'old normal'.

Thanks for the update from New Normal Canada ... yes, there are several tips of several spears.

And don’t forget the two week quarantine still in place for unvaxxed who leave here and come back! Horrible.

Canada, Australia, Israel, Italy, and Austria have served as testing grounds.

If you look at a chart of the WEF Young Global Leaders, it is easy to see why. Schwab was bragging about infiltrating various cabinets, including Canada's.

Canada is lumping in concerns about the loss of civil liberties in with racism and violence as an excuse to suppress dissent. They propose so-called 'digital literacy' programs that would “build Canadian’s critical and civic media consumption skills across the entire population, including how to identify conspiracy theories, disinformation and misinformation online.”

They don't seem to care that the original meaning of the term media literacy was about not just blindly trusting the media. Now it has the opposite meaning.

“Anti-authority” ohmygosh.

Both Israel and Germany have been the biggest surprises in terms of compliance. Non-compliance by the masses is really the only answer. So disappointing to read:

"Sadly, the majority of the German masses will mindlessly click heels and follow orders, as they have since the Spring of 2020."

Perhaps - I wonder, is the spell breaking? I think so, hard to assess actual numbers, but reality has a way of eventually catching up. Maybe by October more of the herd will have moved towards awakening and things change. That's what I'm hoping for.

Separate note - got your book last week, and one of my sons saw it on the coffee table and said, "Cool, I wanted to read that." Proud Mama.

And you are reporting from where? - Germany does have the (admirable) background of very vigorous mass protests in 2020 - virtually none in the USA. USA has, however, Governor DeSantis in Florida who yesterday said the state of Florida is NOT recommending the clot shots for young children (after fed gov (FDA) approval a few days ago). The single state (of 50) to take that position.

Otherwise, as you say, "hard to assess" (breaking spell) - I have been half hoping for a "celebrity wake-up call" - e.g. Justin Bieber's hideously deformed face, the sudden deaths of some 18 yr old phenom: Tyler Sanders, and the 17 year old daughter of a US Congressman - but that's all I got - froth! - poor Justin is already last week's story.

There were mass protests everywhere in Europe. It was amazing. People will show up for BLM but not for the taking away liberties. Can’t explain it

Middle class get status for supporting BLM publicly. They lose status for being a science denier by not wanting to be forced to wear a mask

A neighbor still has her BLM sign. Such propaganda. Conflating concerns against restrictions with BLM. Thankfully I see many young black men seeing through it all. I had an acquaintance join demonstrations against Trump's presidency and she felt shock that in her 60's she still needed to protest. I thought it was so bizarre. I didn't vote for Trump and never watched his show The Apprentice but I was bewildered how strong the feelings were against him. He was too thin skin for me but I liked his appointments. They seemed normal and when they went too far, they backed off quickly - like one would with a business decision.

My wife just finished reading your latest book of essays, even though, like me, she had read them in real time as you first published them. She expressed to me how empowering it is to simply know there are others who are thinking, analyzing and critiquing our patently insane "new normal." Thanks for your work C.J.

Makes scientific sense, especially as Easter is a movable feast day i.e occurs on different days and months year-to-year

It’s not about science. It’s about power. Hypothesis: the over-use of masks will end up weakening immune systems. But that lovely lovely power to tell people what to do is just too delicious

Expand full comment

Au contraire. Do you know how much bacteria you can culture off those things? Of course they won't do anything to prevent the spread of an aerosolized respiratory virus, but they should do wonders in making our immune systems better at fighting bacterial infections!(Sarcasm intended.)

It still amazes me that the mask nonsense was successful. I remember walking into an Obi hardware store here after it was announced, and most people were wearing cowboy-style handkerchiefs (not that OP masks or even N95s are much better).

The idea that one could put a piece of loosely fitted cloth on their face to stop a microscopic virus remains one of the most comedic suppositions of this entire fraud.

I still can't come to terms with how a fully formed adult brain would argue in favor of such nonsense.

I am an American in Germany, too.

Where should one go? The US is better?

This is a global problem, being pushed by organizations like WEF, who want a digital panopticon at the global level.

There is plenty of resistance in Germany.

I'm lucky to live in Japan, where there is no coercion. It's not necessary because 99.9% of people wear masks due to the social tyranny that has always been under the surface. But I have noticed more people brazenly showing their faces and even exchanging smiles. Maybe it's down to 99.6%.

Here in Oakland, California we still have a mask mandate. I went to the Lucky's supermakret yesterday and encountered a large sign in front of the automatic doors that scolded, "If you aren't wearing a mask, we are legally required NOT to serve you."

I bought a pint of ice cream. No mask. No one said anything...

These articles help sustain my commitment to calm but overt non-compliance with the insanity.

What can be done? If we are re-living the 1930s then it seems nothing can be done. The madness will have to burn itself out. Which is, frankly, pretty terrifying. 99% of people I know here in the UK went along quite enthusiastically with the whole charade but say now they are amazed they did but it's OK as it's over now. Except they are all jabbed and will probably get jabbed again and mostly have a spare mask "just in case it's needed". They all just think it was about a lethal cold virus which they were lucky to survive. They are not aware of the bigger picture. So what can be done?

It's getting too complicated to try to explain anymore. They either figure it out like I did, or they lose.

When Carroll Quigley wrote Tragedy and Hope in the 1960s, it was his theory that Germany would always tend toward authoritarianism because if its deep tribal roots. The populace loves to feel safe and directed from above.

A reason why America still has a shot at derailing this whole nightmare. We were born of resistance to authority.

Yet 90 percent of people in America have no idea who WEF, OSF, Bilderberg, Wellcome, etc., are, and have done nothing in the way of protest or taken any action.

Aside from Bobby Kennedy and a handfull in indy media and healthcare, what has even happened in the US to counter any of what has taken place over the past 3 years?

Expand full comment

That's the same in Germany though. I've been talking about stuff like NWO and Bilderberg for 20 years, and all I get from my German friends and relatives is an irritated or bewildered look, followed by a quick change of subject or a comment like "That's too conspiracy theory-ish for me", or "that's tendentious!". I actually encounter more like-minded people in the US.

Agreed! And many are armed.

Just when I think it can't get any worse, it gets worse. I thought seeing all the little children line up to get their shot was bad. Or here in Commiefornia, passing a bill to allow 12 year olds to defy their parents and get the shot was bad. But I see more is coming our way. Everyone must resist.

CJ is the man. Thank you for calling things by their proper names.

All this is very scary, but at the same time, I would point out that as one of the leading (and very evil) early Tavistock psychological warfare experts once said, "winning wars is not about killing, it's about destroying the enemy's morale while maintaining one's own."

All this at the end of the day is about creating the appearance that these governments are in control. Here in Canada, we saw how non-linear and quickly the situation can suddenly develop, as with the Freedom Convoy.

July 1st is Canada day and there is supposed to be a major showing of the population. Protests are planned for the entire summer, so it may very well be a summer long resistance. There will be more government crackdowns, but there will be more revolts.

I think the key is making sure a clear vision and alternative is also presented. People can't just be resisting. The entire Western financial system is sitting on a giant financial bubble, including a near-Quadrillion dollar financial derivatives bubble.

This is the elephant in the room. Those running the Western empire are not in a position of strength, and they are being strategically routed by the Eurasian powers. It's up the patriots and creative minority (as MLK described it) to get creative and hit the would-be "gods" in their strategic weak points, of which there are now many.

That’s what happens, when a tank like Angela Merkel sits on her chancellorship like glue, and converts her CDU party into a communist party, running the country and its infrastructure so down the pan, that the voter vote for anything else at all. Then you get a rabid coalition of even worse communists, finishing the job off. And most of the sheeple still haven’t noticed, it seems.

It would have been another WEF Young Global Leader, if it weren't her. Most major Western nations are run by them at present. And Joe Joe Magoo, while not a YGL, is kept animated by the Schwabian hand up his posterior.

I shouldn't be surprised, anywhere there are humans, there is stupidity. Still, sorry to hear that. Glad I'm an old man soon to be off this ride. Sad thing to say, but honest. My dad was a WWII vet born in 1918 - he would feel betrayed by our governments. Glad he isn't alive to see what our world has become.
