The Hive Mind

Posted by M. C. on March 23, 2022

One of the transcendent features of left-wing people, regardless of time and place, is their complete lack of self-awareness. The great blind spot for all left-wing people is the reflection in the mirror. They are incapable of seeing themselves other than as the hero in a great struggle. This story out of Canada about the correlation between Covid-loving and Putin-hating is a great example. The Left thinks it confirms their righteous hatred of their enemy, but it merely confirms their lack of self-awareness.

According to the story, “Unvaccinated Canadians are about 12 times more likely than those who received three doses to believe Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine was justified, according to a new survey by national polling firm EKOS.” Now, polling is a dodgy business, so this could be a fake poll designed to titillate the far-left. The fact that such a scenario is possible, however, is more proof of the general thesis about the far-left’s lack of self-awareness.

There are two ideas advanced in the coverage of this poll. One is that the unvaccinated are immoral, so it stands to reason that they support the evil Hitler guy.  The Left all over the West has been fixated on the vaccine as a moral signifier. They rushed to be the first to prove their piety within the Covid cult and they rushed to condemn the vaccine skeptics as ignorant hooligans. The Left would have embraced face tattoos for the vaccinated if it was an option.

Supporting the Current Thing: COVID Mania adherents embrace the Ukraine narrative

Posted by M. C. on March 22, 2022

Not supporting a crippling sanctions regime on Russia, or arming neo fascist Ukrainian militias to the teeth, or even the imposition of a World War 3 level no fly zone over Ukraine, has become akin to being a bad person, and will sometimes even result in your labeling as a traitorous agent for a foreign regime.

Jordan Schachtel

I wanted to turn your attention to a fascinating poll that came out the other day.

The Toronto Star hired a polling agency to survey Canadians about their views about the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. What made this poll unique is that it separated the sides to three separate groups: the triple vaccinated, the double vaxxed, and the unvaccinated.

Now, it’s one thing to have taken two COVID injections, but those who committed to the repeated booster regime were either compelled to do so (frequently under duress) or became true believers to the COVID narrative. As the polling shows, this group, by and large, submits to authority figures and embraces the current narrative, regardless of the actual merits of the solutions.

The other group — and remember, unvaccinated Canadians have faced severe discrimination for not taking the mRNA injections — saw the government’s appeal to their supposed health, and wholly rejected the COVID narrative. Unvaccinated Canadians are still not allowed to leave the country. Their rejection of the government narrative comes at an incredible personal and professional cost.

Data about the vaccines is disappearing

Posted by M. C. on February 18, 2022

Scotland is one of the most transparent countries about Covid vaccines.

Whoops!

I mean Scotland WAS one of the most transparent.

The country just said mRNA shots work so well that the raw data showing how well they work will no longer be released.

Because they work so well.

“Misrepresented” means screenshotted for everyone to see (though, sigh, I am not an anti-vaxxer anymore than someone who investigated thalidomide in 1965 is an “anti-mediciner.”)

Here’s the final chart we’ll ever have.

Rates of death remain lower in people who were not vaccinated than those who received two doses, as they have for months:

Now let’s look at the whole chart, including boosters – no misinformation here!

SOURCE

13 out of the 104 people who died of Covid in Scotland in the week ending Feb. 4 were unvaccinated. In the 4 weeks ending Feb. 4, 61 of the 478 people were unvaccinated. (That’s equivalent to about 30,000 deaths in the United States.)

In other words, almost 9 out of 10 of the people who die in Scotland are vaccinated, and the vast majority of those are boosted. And deaths remain stubbornly high, even though Omicron is far milder.

Scotland was among a handful of countries to publish data at this level of detail. I suspect the others will follow its lead.

The novel Covid vaccine experiment is over. It’s ending. It’s failed.

The authorities know the truth as well as anyone else.

They are taking their only possible course of action: end the mandates, hide the raw numbers, and hope there are no long-term problems and everyone forgets.

Oh yeah, and try to censor anyone who won’t.

The Pharma Revolution Is Being Televised

Posted by M. C. on February 3, 2022

The twist in this fourth stage of the pharma revolution is that now unvaccinated persons have been cast as “the enemy,” with all that this implies, up to and including calls to restrict their movement and access to social spheres. Thus we find leaders such as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking unfacetiously, with no apparent irony, whether unvaccinated persons should be “tolerated.” 

by Laurie Calhoun

Marketing is essentially the art of persuading people to buy what they would not have bought, left to their own devices. This is achieved through manipulating either desires or perceptions of need. People who do not watch television are exposed to much less advertising of consumer products than are people who do. Similarly, the less time one spends surfing the internet, expressing either explicit or implicit interest in buying possible products, the fewer items there will likely be in one’s various shopping carts, not only because marketers now target people with ads catering to their preferences, but also because one will be exposed to fewer advertisements overall. Big corporations have enormous marketing budgets because advertising works: people often buy what they have been persuaded to believe that they should buy, choosing products with familiar names or whose alleged virtues have been extolled to them through one means or another.

The conspicuous consumption induced by mass market advertising campaigns may or may not be a vice, but it would be difficult to deny that people do not believe themselves to need a product which they do not know to exist. Correlatively, if they do not believe themselves to suffer from a particular disease, then they will not typically seek out a medical treatment for it. Before 1997, direct-to-consumer advertising of pharmaceutical products was prohibited in the United States, as it is still today throughout most of the world. The presumption against the direct promotion of drugs to patients themselves is grounded in the concern that untutored persons might be persuaded, purely on the basis of seductive advertisements, to pursue treatments of which they have no need.

Throughout history it has been regarded as the role of doctors to recommend possible courses of treatment to patients who require medical intervention. Modern pharmaceutical companies naturally vie for the attention of doctors, in the hopes that they will choose their products over those of competitors. Physicians are the primary readers of journals and magazines featuring articles relaying the results of clinical trials interwoven with advertisements summarizing the virtues of newly manufactured drugs, along with others still under patent. Since 1997, however, patients themselves have been targeted by drug ads as well, through not only television and radio broadcasts but also the internet. The marketing logic which governs new products in general governs pharmaceutical products in particular.

One must first be informed that a disease exists before attempting to ascertain whether one exhibits its symptoms and should undergo a course of palliative treatment. Healthy people do not usually spend their time fretting over diseases, and throughout most of the twentieth century, people who spent their days poring over medical encyclopedias in order to determine what possible ailments they might possibly suffer from were widely regarded as hypochondriacs, who used medical pretexts to seek out attention and treatment when in fact there was nothing physically wrong with them. Likewise, most parents do not pore over reference books to identify diseases ascribable to their ostensibly healthy children. When the FDA (under the influence of the pharmaceutical industry) lifted the ban on direct-to-consumer advertising of medical products, everything changed, as patients began to request from their doctors pills which they had learned about through commercials specifically designed by marketing departments to maximize sales.

The medical interventions which a doctor is inclined to recommend have always been determined in part by reigning scientific beliefs regarding which diseases exist and can be eliminated or alleviated. Medical conditions, however, are partitioned and diseases delineated by conventions which transform over time. What were for many years deemed “pathologies” sometimes come to be recognized as lifestyle choices or even normal biological conditions. Homosexuality used to be considered an illness by the medical profession, but today that is no longer the case.

Conversely, moving one’s legs around in the middle of the night was not recognized fifty years ago as a mental disorder. Today, however, “Restless Legs Syndrome” (RLS) has an entry in the latest edition of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). A wide range of medications are said by their manufacturers to address this “ailment,” making it entirely possible for a person to conclude on the basis of a television commercial that he or she suffers from RLS and requires psychotropic medication.

Italy’s Covid Despotism Just Got Worse | Mises Wire

Posted by M. C. on February 2, 2022

https://mises.org/wire/italys-covid-despotism-just-got-worse

Matteo Salonia

The news from Italy has started to sound like good incipits for a dystopian fantasy novel or like a déjà vu recalling the Soviet Union. A couple of weeks ago, a new decree of the Draghi government established yet more rules restricting the lives of people who have not been injected with the latest vaccine booster and who therefore cannot show the latest version of the Green Pass. These second-class citizens, who have already been stripped of their right to move, work, and participate in a great number of social activities, are now forbidden from entering post offices to withdraw their pension, and they are to be allowed access to supermarkets only to buy “goods of primary necessity.” In other words, the Italian government decides what kind of food and what other goods (if any) these people will be able to purchase. It is unclear how exactly the government intends to enforce this new decree: Will we see policemen putting their hands into shoppers’ bags? Will bread be considered a “primary” good while shaving foam and candies will be seized? There is no limit to the madness. And a recent note from the executive to clarify the situation only made things worse: the state now decrees that the unvaccinated can actually also buy nonprimary goods in the few shops they are allowed to enter. For the time being. In other words, Italy is now a society where your sphere of action goes only as far as the prime minister’s website explicitly and graciously allows. Heading out for a stroll at the park? You better check the latest blog post from Mario Draghi to see if he explicitly grants you this freedom!

How did it come to this?

Good Woods family news, bad fascism news

Posted by M. C. on January 26, 2022

https://mailchi.mp/tomwoods/italy?e=fa1aba8cd8

t’s good news and bad news today.

First the bad news: a reader from Italy reminds us, as things are beginning to thaw in the UK and even the US, what the situation remains like there:

Dear Tom, thanks for your precious work. Fond listener here, and member of your Liberty Classroom.

They all talk a lot about Nazi-Australia but almost nobody talks of what’s been going on here in Nazi-Italy. I just want to give you an update and hope you may help sharing some info internationally.

Our government, since February 2021, is made of a mega-coalition that includes all political parties with just 1 party feigning opposition, but actually doing no opposition at all.

Emergency decrees are being enacted at a psychotic, compulsive rate and “state of emergency” has now been extended to March 31st, 2022.

As of December 2021, vaccination rate in Italy for people over 12 was about 91%, intensive care occupation was a meager 9.5%, all adults are currently running to get their 3rd jab but, still, they have made mask-mandates more stringent: now you have to get masked even in open air, and if you have the guts to get on a bus, then you must wear an FFP2 mask.

As a matter of fact, I can’t even stand walking on a sidewalk now here in Milano because my stomach churns with every masked “covidiot” I see walking alone.

Recently released official data admitted that 34% of covid hospitalizations of the last 2 years were actually not covid-related and no wonder: they increased public contributions to hospitals for each covid patient and so any patient admitted for a broken bone but testing positive for covid became a covid patient.

Omicron is spreading fast these days, with its mild flu symptoms and no real emergency of course and, as other places are slowly get to their senses, like England and Ireland for example, our press is still in full propaganda mode. After all, a national law last year doubled public contributions to the media officially for them to “inform” about covid. A total of 386 million euros.

We now need to have what they call a Super-GreenPass, that you can only get with vaccination or recovery, to do anything: going to work, using public transportation, entering bars and restaurants, doing sports, going to a bank or post office.

Starting from February 1st, we unvaccinated rats will not be admitted even into shops. Except to buy food or gasoline… thanks to their generosity.

And it must be the right thing because, even though we all know now that vaxxed souls are also widely spreading the virus, just last October our Fuhrer Mr. Draghi (ex-ECB chairman by the way) said on television that “the Green Pass is a measure with which Italians can be guaranteed to be among non-contagious people.” But last July, Mr. Draghi also said, literally: “You don’t get vaccinated, you get sick, you die.” Thanks my Fuhrer, for your qualified information.

I am currently considering to run away from this hell of a country but, unfortunately, my triple-vaxxed wife is not sharing my view….

Please let people know, if you can, that Australia or Austria are not alone in their fascist delirium. As a matter of fact, we have a lot to teach about fascism!


No matter what happens elsewhere in the world we cannot abandon people like this. The story must continue to be told.

Some genuinely happy news, by contrast, is that today my wonderful Elizabeth Woods, who inspires so much of my effort on all this, turns 12.

Here we are a few years ago on a nice morning in New York City. The rest of the family was still asleep, so we decided to find a diner for breakfast:
Here we are just goofing off, in my pre-beard days.
And here we are on a trip the two of us took to Los Angeles last year. We’d just visited the Aquarium of the Pacific and now we’re playing mini golf:
Here she is on that same trip, piloting a boat around Newport Bay, while we played her favorite music over the sound system.
I want her not to grow up in a dystopia, which is a good portion of the reason I work so hard at this.

I’ve spent my life doing my best to spread the truth about all kinds of topics. Hence my Liberty Classroom, the Ron Paul (homeschool) Curriculum, and my many videos, podcast episodes, and books.

But by far the most important thing I can do for my family and for yours, right now in 2022, is what I will be disclosing in the coming days.

If you can think of something better than what I am about to reveal, I’m all ears.

I can’t.

Here is how we get real life back, together:

Israel Confirms Vaccine Fail Against Omicron: All Vaccine Mandates Must End Now – LewRockwell LewRockwell.com

Posted by M. C. on January 19, 2022

We also ask that all Covid passports schemes be revoked. Covid health passes do not serve any legitimate purpose since the vaccinated are not protected against infection, and, in fact, the data show that they are getting infected more readily than their unvaccinated counterparts. For some reason, Omicron seems to target the vaccinated especially.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2022/01/vasko-kohlmayer/israel-confirms-vaccine-fail-against-omicron-all-vaccine-mandates-must-end-now/

By Vasko Kohlmayer

“The bottom line is that the vaccine is excellent against the Alpha and Delta [variants], for Omicron it’s not good enough” said Prof. Gili Regev-Yochay who led an Israeli experiment of assessing the effectives of the vaccine against corona’s latest variant.

Do you realize what this implies?

Given the fact that the vaccines do not work against Omicron and that Omicron is now the globally dominant Covid strain, it makes no logical or medical sense to continue with vaccinating and boostering at this time.

After all, why would anyone in their right mind needlessly inject people with failed protections that carry a risk of severe adverse reactions.

At this point we are out of vaccine options. No vaccine that is currently at our disposal can protect people from contracting and transmitting Omicron infection or reduce the severity of its symptoms.

We have seen that the opposite is actually the case: the vaccinated and the boostered are contracting omicron at higher rates than the unvaccinated.

This means that there is nothing we can do by way of vaccinal intervention with the shots that are available to us at the moment.

Here is the reality of our situation: We have come – at least for now – to the end of the vaccine road as far as Covid-19 is concerned. At this time, we simply possess no effective vaccine with which to tackle this disease.

This may change in the future, but for now this is the reality of our situation, and it is imperative that we clearly grasp and accept it so that we do not inflict any unnecessary injury or death.

Since the vaccines are ineffective against the prevailing variant, all Covid injectioneering has to stop. To give out any more shots of these vaccines – which we know do not work – is senseless and medically irresponsible.

Continuing vaccination under current circumstances can bring no benefit and will only result in needless harm. To pointlessly expose healthy people to potential injury would constitute medical malfeasance.

We, therefore, call upon health authorities, politicians, employers and schools to follow science and common sense.

The science and common sense clearly show that all vaccine and booster mandates need to be suspended.

We ask that this be done immediately and without delay.

We also ask that all Covid passports schemes be revoked. Covid health passes do not serve any legitimate purpose since the vaccinated are not protected against infection, and, in fact, the data show that they are getting infected more readily than their unvaccinated counterparts. For some reason, Omicron seems to target the vaccinated especially.

All throughout this pandemic we have been told by our politicians and health officials to follow the science. It is time for them to finally live up to their own teaching.

We ask them to do what is right in this situation: End all vaccine mandates and health pass schemes.

In the wake of the vaccinal failure, doing anything other would be medically negligent and scientifically unjustifiable.

Revealed: what Democrats want to do to the unvaccinated

Posted by M. C. on January 18, 2022

Not to mention that none of that has any connection to “public health,” since the vaccinated are also spreading the virus. (The recent outbreak among vaccinated scientists in Antarctica really took the cake.)

https://mailchi.mp/tomwoods/demsunvaxed?e=fa1aba8cd8

What’s happening to the unvaccinated in some countries almost defies belief.

We’ve endured some horrors here, to be sure, but not we’re not Australia.

But that’s exactly what many Democrats would prefer, and then some, if they could have their way.

How do we know? Polling data.

Rasmussen just reported the following:

— 59% of Democrats favor forcing the unvaccinated to stay home at all times except for emergencies.

— 55% of Democrats favor levying state or federal fines on people who decline the shot.

— 48% of Democrats favor fines or imprisonment for people who publicly question vaccine efficacy.

— 47% of Democrats favor a government tracking program to people who decline the shot.

— 45% of Democrats support temporary relocation to “designated facilities or locations” for those who decline the shot.

— 29% of Democrats favor temporarily removing your custody of your children if you decline the shot.

That’s pretty twisted.

Not to mention that none of that has any connection to “public health,” since the vaccinated are also spreading the virus. (The recent outbreak among vaccinated scientists in Antarctica really took the cake.)

This is punishment of the noncompliant.

No wonder the idea of “national divorce” is trending. Who would want to share a country with people so hateful and irrational?

Realize that for those of us who have indeed declined the shot, as we walk around in our day-to-day lives we are coming into contact with people who would track us, confine us, imprison us for questioning vaccine efficacy (so vaccine efficacy is something we know a priori?), or take our children away.

You see why it might be helpful to have a lifeline to normal, intelligent, supportive people?

If not now, when?

The Tom Woods Show Elite, my private group — not on Facebook, of course — is where you can find such people.

It’s one of the many perks of supporting the Tom Woods Show.

Dr. McCullough Bombshell: Covid Outpatient Treatments Being Suppressed!

Posted by M. C. on January 4, 2022

In a recent interview with the Epoch Times, Dr. Peter McCullough claimed that the US government is actively working to suppress any investigation of outpatient Covid treatments. As the Omicron variant appears to be infecting the vaccinated as well as the unvaccinated, the question increasingly being asked is why after two years are there no treatments? Also today, an insurance company CEO blows the whistle on a shocking increase in working-age deaths last year. Finally – a victory for Navy Seals suing for medical freedom.
