We are still catching up on relevant news, to set the stage for a new worldview. The articles I choose will not contain every outrage in the news. I will focus on items that show a broad loss of social cohesion, or adherence to the rule of law, or risk to our lives.
“Dr Zelenko calls child vaccine mandate ‘coercive human experimentation, crimes against humanity’”
“CDC Bureaucrats & Dem. Politicians Could be Guilty of Mass Murder & Crimes Against Humanity”
“Many COVID-19 patients produce immune responses against their body’s tissues or organs” The “vaccine” turns your body into a spike protein factory. By modus ponens, we deduce that the “vaccine” induces auto-immune disease.
“BBC Just Admits 50% of Deaths Include Vaccinated People!” Since that is the approximate proportion of the population that has been “vaccinated”, we may deduce that the effectiveness of the “vaccine” is approximately 0%.
A 3-hour discussion about the pandemic and “vaccines” between Dr. Bret Weinstein, Dr. Robert Malone, and Steve Kirsch was removed from YouTube for the crime of telling the truth. Maybe you can find it elsewhere.
For those who must take a vaccine, some good news about an apparently real vaccine: “Novavax COVID-19 vaccine more than 90% effective in U.S. trial”
“Christopher Sign, Birmingham TV anchor and former Alabama football player, dead in apparent suicide” He uncovered the tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch in the summer of 2016. Someone must have ordered him to kill himself.
“Man survives after being swallowed by whale” I remember a colleague at a college where I used to teach, a very tolerant fellow, who loved nothing more than mocking ignorant white Southern Christians. He would tell us in a mock Southern accent that “Jonah done got swallowed by a whale!” The “done” was said with emphasis, to mock Southern illiteracy. Well guess what my smart aleck friend?! It happened to this American!
I am going to start catching up with a number of important articles, trying to focus on essentials, so I also have time to narrate to you what I observed on this recent trip. We will also be away during the first full week of July, so time is of the essence. I will be telling you what I saw at the high school graduation of Mrs. Surak’s niece, why I don’t believe in the Pledge of Allegiance any more, and what you need to know about the greatest civilizational collapses in history you may not have heard about.
We need to prepare in every way for what is coming, including by reading critiques of our society from sources we have been trained to disregard. Western civilization is killing itself voluntarily under the urging of charismatic leaders who bring a credible threat of force. As Jim Jones gazes on in awestruck horror from Hell, Bezos-Dorsey-Fauci-Gates-Zuckerberg say, “Hold my beer.”
While I was vacationing in the “new South”, Nitzakhon was busy reading my mind and produced an exceptional essay here:
This is just what I was thinking about as I drove through Virginia. I will return to this topic in a few days.
“What Can Be Done?” The culture war and how to fight back, as seen by friends of the South.
“The New Secession Crisis” A bill of particulars, much like the original Declaration of Independence.
One parent trying to fight back against the school-endorsed sexualization of American children:
“The collective insanity that’s rapidly erasing America” “Many of us older than half a century no longer recognize the country we grew up in. We have a hard time reconciling that past America with what we see happening today.” More:
We shun those who do not comply with outrageous and unconstitutional mandates.
We blindly believe government officials and their allies in the media, though they have proven time and again that they lie and should not be trusted.
We’re emptying our jails of violent offenders while imprisoning law-abiding citizens — sometimes for simply exercising their rights.
We’re taking political prisoners like any third-world dictatorship.
We allow our cities to be torched and looted with few repercussions.
We’re tearing down our history, our culture, and our traditions in the name of progressivism.
We invite seemingly anyone who wants to enter the country illegally to take our jobs, receive public services, and drag down wages.
Our national debt reaches into the stratosphere while politicians go whistling past the graveyard.
We abort the innocent and defenseless while vigorously defending the guiltiest among us.
We scare our children into radicalism with tales of impending doom due to climate changes that are as old as the Earth.
We’re wrecking entire industries to “protect the Earth” while propping up those same endeavors for our enemies.
We deny biological realities and allow men to use women’s facilities and participate in women’s activities, provided that they “self-identify” as women.
We subject the military to ideological litmus tests.
We fraudulently change election results while casting those who push for transparency as “conspiracy advocates” and add their names to a list of domestic terrorists.
We allow the government to censor those who oppose the lunacy that passes for public policy.
We teach dependency and hatred at many school districts across the country, and within our colleges and universities.
We accuse, disarm, and punish the law-abiding while acquitting the guilty.
We deny science in the name of science.
We obfuscate truth for the purpose of compliance, conformity, and profit.
We have forsaken the Constitution to silence and disarm our population.
So before you suspect me of having insufficient patriotism, I ask you to read the articles above and those to follow in the next few days. I have seen enough evidence to convince me that America is a formality, a dead country walking, so to speak. No amount of conservative reform is going to save it, in the same sense that you don’t attempt to reform an avalanche. You save yourself by getting out of the way and rebuilding when the avalanche has passed.
Dear Surak readers, I have returned. I have accumulated a lot to share with you. Let me start with one of our activities today, on the way home.
The 13 original states are full of history. Virginia is especially full of military history, on top of everything else. Our drive up old route 1 today took us past the National Museum of the Marine Corps and the National Museum of the Army. With limited time, I chose Pamplin Historical Park: The National Museum of the Civil War Soldier.
This museum, as the name implies, does not focus on the causes, the campaigns, or the social changes involved in the war. It focuses mostly on the experiences of the common soldier, whether Union or Confederate. You can browse among musical instruments and card games to pass the time. You can also browse among surgical implements and artificial limbs. Some lucky soldiers had the good fortune to be sedated by opium during their operations.
Near the beginning of the exhibit was a remarkable color infographic published on a full newspaper page in 1861. It displayed the results of the complex 1860 presidential election, in which there were not two, not three, but four viable presidential candidates.
Abraham Lincoln got an outright majority of electoral votes, as well as a plurality of popular votes. But although he was the favorite candidate of more voters than any other candidate, he was also the least favorite candidate of more voters than any other candidate. It is arguable that the other three candidates split the anti-Lincoln vote.
One of my research interests is in voting methods for multi-candidate elections. The 1860 presidential election has long been a classic case study in what-if. Suppose different rules had been used to tally voter preferences. Might the result have been different?
There are some scenarios under which northern Democrat Senator Stephen Douglas of Illinois could have won the election, including under a voting scheme I favor. If he had been elected, would South Carolina have fired on Fort Sumter? Would the South have seceded? Even if there had been secession, would there necessarily have been war?
To be clear, I am 100% opposed to slavery for anyone. That does not imply that I look back happily on the hundreds of thousands killed, or even reject the prospect of an independent South, that might have reduced the modern imperial overreach of Washington, DC.
Here is a photograph of some old veterans from both sides meeting long after the war’s conclusion. (That glare in the middle was my smartphone.)
Seeing what is happening in today’s society, I feel reasonably confident that these two sets of former opponents would realize that they have far more in common with each other than with their descendants. They, and the veterans of the world wars and more recent conflicts, might well regret the blood they shed for more recent ungrateful, decadent generations. We are not fit to shine their shoes.
Upon my return, I found a delivery of “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military” by Matthew Lohmeier, a lieutenant-colonel in the US Space Force who was relieved of his command for writing this book. (Isn’t it interesting that the highest quality people usually top out at Lt. Col.?)
We have a lot of catching up to do in the coming week!
A comprehensive analysis of vaccine adverse events data, including a huge number of adverse events, a huge number of serious adverse events, a huge number of deaths.
“Stop Trusting the Experts!” ‘If you want to follow the science, you must first study, question, and understand the science. Otherwise, you’re at the mercy of some scientist’s personal incentives, biases, and values. Far from science, that’s such a clear act of faith that it animates the biblical warning, “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.”’
“High-Ranking Chinese Defector Has ‘Direct Knowledge’ of Several Chinese Special Weapons Programs” This should be one of the top stories in the country. This is basic confirmation of our worst nightmares, straight from China. Will they try to discredit him as they tried to discredit Dr. Yan? Worse – the DIA would not trust the CIA, FBI, or State Department with this defector because those agencies are filled with Chinese moles. Oh – my – God. Major scoop!
“COVID-19 vaccine efficacy and effectiveness—the elephant (not) in the room” The authors show that the alleged large relative risk reduction with the “vaccines” is not a large absolute risk reduction. If you prevent 90% of deaths resulting from infection, but only 0.26% of infections result in deaths, you improved the survival rate from 99.74% to 99.97%, not a major change.
“Time to Call out the Most Evil Act of Mass Murder Since Hitler, Stalin and Mao Zedong” To beat Trump in the election, it would be worth killing nearly 4 million people? Mrs. Surak says that the population of China is a LOT less than what they say – maybe even under 1 billion…? Fauci’s denial of HCQ in America may have caused 500,000 deaths.
“The End of the Wuhan Scamarama” A doctor notes that Fauci accepted most requests for television interviews, but denied most requests to be a panelist with other doctors and scientists… who could have called him out…! The author quotes Paula Bolyard who asks you to consider where you will be spending the US-Sino War.
“How Top Public Health Officials Spun Tangled Web of Lies Around COVID Origin, Treatments”
There was a conspiracy between the five authors of the Nature paper and the heads of the NIH, NIAID and Wellcome Trust to cover up the lab origin of COVID.
There was a conspiracy involving Daszak , Fauci and others to push the natural origin theory. (See other emails in the recent drop.)
There was a conspiracy involving Daszak to write the Lancet letter and hide its provenance, to push the natural origin theory and paint any other ideas as conspiracy theory. Collin’s blog post is another piece of this story.
Farrar was intimately involved in both large hydroxychloroquine overdose trials, in which about 500 subjects total died.
Farrar, Fauci and Collins withheld research funds that could have supported quality trials of the use of chloroquine drugs and ivermectin and other repurposed drugs that might have turned around the pandemic.
Are the four individuals named here — Fauci, Daszak, Collins and Farrar — intimately involved in the creation of the pandemic, as well as the prolongation and improper treatments used during the pandemic?
“5,165 Deaths Reported Following COVID Vaccines” The swine flu vaccine was stopped after about 25 deaths. Now over 5000 deaths in just a few months???
“What Happens When Doctors Can’t Tell the Truth?” ‘“I’ve heard examples of Covid-19 cases in the emergency department where providers go, ‘I’m not going to go treat that white guy, I’m going to treat the person of color instead because whatever happened to the white guy, he probably deserves it.’”’WOW…
Watch this video and tell me we are not lost. If you were there, what would you do? Seriously; I want to know. At what point do we stop looking and start acting?
The video above shows why I want to separate. I might try to save that victim, hoping that others would join me; but experience shows that no one would join me. You only get whispers: “I really support what you said. Just not publicly.”
“Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship Discussion featuring Jordan Peterson, Gad Saad, Janice Fiamengo, Michael Rectenwald, Barbara Kay and Curt Jaimungal”
Starting in December, 2000, the Labor Department began a new survey to better understand the state of the labor market. Previously, they had surveyed households to determine the unemployment rate (among other things), and they had surveyed businesses, to determine the number of jobs (among other things). The new survey quantifies job openings, hires, quits, terminations, and other things. (It is very strange that the Clinton Labor Department only saw fit to begin such measures as the next president was beginning his term…)
It was a tremendous moment of achievement for our country in October 2017 when, for the first time, the job opening rate was actually higher than the unemployment rate. Thus in theory (!), everyone could get a job. Thus things stood until the pandemic.
In the graph below, the blue curve is the job opening rate, as a percent of the labor force, and the red curve is the unemployment rate, as a percent of the labor force. Notice in the graph below that the curves move in opposite directions, which makes sense. In good economic times, many jobs open up, and there are few people who cannot get jobs. In hard economic times, few jobs open up, and there are many people who cannot get jobs.
The spike on the right side represents the self-inflicted lockdown. Coming out of this lockdown, the job opening rate has begun increasing again. Amazingly, it has surpassed its previous record under President Trump. In March 2021, the job opening rate was an incredible 5.3% of the labor force, notably better than the Trumpian record of 4.8%.
According to the pattern of the previous 20 years, unemployment should have crashed to near 3%. However, it remains elevated at 5.8% in May. What is going on?
Part of the story is that people are not going back to work. Part of the issue is the supplemental unemployment payments being disbursed by several states, paying people to stay home.
There may be another ominous ingredient, observed by Mrs. Surak. The labor force participation rate (LFPT) is the percent of the working age population that is either working or seeking a job. This rate had improved under Trump, went down during the lockdown, and has begun to recover. At least, it recovered until May, when it dipped slightly. Mrs. Surak wonders if this is a warning of people becoming ill post-vaccination.
In any case, we have a stagnating recovery and budding high inflation, which are the ingredients of stagflation. The last time this happened in the 1970s, gold outperformed.
In the following graph, the blue curve is the real price of gold, adjusted to match the nominal price in February 2020. The red curve is 30 times the CPI inflation index percent increase from one year ago plus 120 times the unemployment rate, which could be a type of misery index.
The graph implies that peaks in this particular misery index precede peaks in the real (inflation adjusted) price of gold (which has never recaptured its previous peak in January 1980). This artificial misery index plunged in the last year of the Trump presidency, but it is making a comeback under Biden; see the uptick in the red curve on the right side of the graph. Together with the catastrophically low velocity of money, this portends well for gold.
I am not a financial adviser, so invest at your own risk.
This will be the first of several posts to come out in the next few days, as the Surak household goes out of town and out of state for a week to visit family in warmer climes to the south.
American Jews, and especially their communal organizations, are in a distressing state of bewilderment, as their leftist comrades reveal their hatred of all things Jewish. Waiting for the crocodile to eat them last, time is running out.
“Bill de Blasio Told NYPD to NOT Protect Pro-Israel Rally in Times Square, Andrew Giuliani Claims” So young Giuliani claims, based on insider sources in the NYPD.
“Progressive Jews Delude Themselves” ‘…they continue to vote Democrat even though there is “the emergence of a new sort of anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. The new form of Jew-hatred is a combination of anti-Zionism and identity politics. It is convoluted and hard to follow. But contradictions and all, it has arrived.”‘
The attempt of progressive Jews to fit in to fashionable causes may be doomed to failure from the start, because of some ancient words, spoken by a great non-Israelite prophet, Bil’am (usually Romanized Balaam):
How shall I curse, he whom God has not cursed? or how shall I defy, he whom the Lord has not defied?
For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him; lo, the people shall live alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.
Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!
The comments on that blog included a 13-1/2 minute video on the Battle of Athens (Tennessee) in 1946. This is a fascinating, important piece of American history that was quickly buried. It is worth learning this story again.
The protagonists of this story were recently returned veterans from World War 2, who had proudly made much of Europe and Asia safe for democracy. When they returned home, they realized the corruption of their own government made a mockery of the high ideals for which they risked their lives.
They had a crazy idea that elections were supposed to be fair and honest, not fixed in advance. They had the impertinence to demand to see the ballots being counted. The Department of Justice had no interest in enforcing the nation’s laws. That may be hard for some of younger readers to believe, but it was really true. Since then, of course, things have improved a lot.
I do not recommend imitating the actions of these self-styled “patriots” by any means. We can always trust the experts, just as we trust the science and trust the data. The government really wants what is best for you.
That is why it is important to put as much information about yourself as possible onto social media so you can be corrected if you have improper thoughts. Own as little physical property as possible; leave all your projects and assets in the cloud. That will make it easier for you to be cancelled, fired, de-platformed, bankrupted, and arrested if the consensus goes against you.
Enjoy your soy burger during the long holiday weekend!
Dear readers, there is a new section at the bottom of this blog entitled “Deep State”. Its first entry is a link to a pdf with more than 3000 pages, containing the Fauci e-mails released under a recent request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). In contrast, as one blogger ruefully notes, we are still waiting for production of the Hillary Clinton e-mails, years after a similar FOIA request.
I will give you just a few of the highlights. But first, watch Dr. Peter McCullough from Texas for 16 minutes: WORLD RENOWNED DOCTOR BLOWS LID OFF OF COVID VACCINE
The True Narrative 1. Covid-19 is a man made bioweapon released from Wuhan viral lab. 2. Fauci and his accomplices gave critical technology and funding to China to develop a weapon of mass destruction. 3. Prehospital treatment of covid-19 was intentionally suppressed. Life saving information and medication was intentionally suppressed. 4. The Zelenko Protocol was developed mid-March 2020. Hydroxychloroquine/zinc/Azithromycin. This protocol reduced hospitalization and death by 84%. Multiple studies have proven this to be a scientific truth. 5. Academic fraud, media false propaganda, and governmental malfeasance vilified prehospital treatment with the zelenko protocol. 6. Out of 600000 dead Americans we could have saved 510000. 7. The American people have been brutalized and are victims of mass murder and crimes against humanity. Solution 1. Immediately endorse prehospital treatment and make it the standard of care. 2. Bring the criminals to justice. Vladimir Zelenko MD https://t.me/PatrickByrne/1094
By denying hydroxychloroquine to the American people, it can be argued that Fauci was responsible for the deaths of about 500,000 Americans. That should result in a trial on crimes against humanity. He and his co-conspirators (Cuomo, Gates, Murphy, Newsom, Pritzker, Whitmer, Wolf et al?) should be held responsible.
