The Unified War

Dear readers,

I have just published my first essay on Substack, entitled “The Unified War”.

It is an extended essay on many of the topics we discuss regularly. I think you will find it intriguing. Please click through and let me know what you think. Also, subscribe to my Substack while you are there!

Mrs. Surak’s operation is Tuesday morning. Please pray for our safety and for her complete and speedy healing. For Jewish readers, her Hebrew name is Miriam bas Sarah (Ashkenazi) or Miriam bat Sarah (Sefardi). I hope to speak with you later this week.

Taking control of your healthcare

I got an e-mail today from the late Dr. Zelenko’s Z-Stack Life, announcing the opening of “The Wellness Company“. They offer virtual appointments, supplements, and a pharmacy network. You pay a monthly or annual membership fee, and then fees for services. Among their advisory board are Drs. Peter McCullough and Harvey Risch. I have already downloaded the app on my phone, and am considering membership.

Speaking of Z-Stack Life, if you are purchasing their supplements, remember to use the link below to help support this blog as an affiliate:

Kipah tip Brucha Weisberger for telling me about this journal: “What is in the so-called COVID-19 “Vaccines”? Part 1: Evidence of a Global Crime Against Humanity” “Between July 2021 and August 2022, evidence of undisclosed ingredients in the COVID-19 “vaccines” was published by at least 26 researchers/research teams in 16 different countries across five continents using spectroscopic and microscopic analysis. Despite operating largely independently of one another, their findings are remarkably similar and highlight the clear and present danger that the world’s population has been lied to regarding the contents of the COVID-19 “vaccines”. This raises grave questions about the true purpose of the dangerous experimental injections that have so far been shot into 5.33 billion people (over two thirds of the human race), including children, apparently without their informed consent regarding the contents. Surprise findings include sharp-edged geometric structures, fibrous or tube-like structures, crystalline formations, “microbubbles”, and possible self-assembling nanotechnology. The blood of people who have received one or more COVID-19 “vaccines” appears, in case after case, to contain foreign bodies and to be seriously degraded, with red blood cells typically in Rouleaux formation. Taken together, these 26 studies make a powerful case for the full force of scientific investigation to be brought to bear on the COVID-19 “vaccine” contents. If the findings of these 26 studies are confirmed, then the political implications are nothing short of revolutionary: a global crime against humanity has been committed, in which every government, every regulator, every establishment media organization, and all the professions have been complicit.” Warning: this is 132 pages!

Tuesday was the release of the government’s inflation report. They found an 8.3% increase year-over-year, down from 8.5% the previous month. My Essentials CPI increased 9.6% year-over-year, down from 10.3% the previous month.

Gen Z’s worship of the Unabomber” “He was the violent prophet of our tech-dystopia” Ted Kaczynski was a murderer. It should go without saying that I condemn terrorism, period.

Nevertheless, his manifesto “Industrial Society and its Future”, linked within this article, is powerful reading. With the injection-pandemic, we are rapidly approaching not just tech dystopia, but tech apocalypse. His critiques of both the left and the right seem correct.

Did Israel’s pandemic response betray their citizens and the world?

Steve Kirsch describes this as one of his most important posts: “Proof that Israel found serious safety problems with the COVID vaccines then deliberately covered it up” “Israel didn’t start to gather safety data until a year into the vaccine program. They gathered 6 months worth of data and found that the vaccines weren’t safe so they lied to the world about it.” Could a nation be so corrupt as to perpetrate a second Holocaust upon the survivors of the first? Sadly, many of the jab boosters are secular, and many are (superficially) religious. Independent thought has been crushed in Israel. Kirsch reports that a Hebrew translation of his article was removed by government censors from an Israeli news website an hour after it was posted. No, I am not interested in aliyah at this time.

Mises – interesting: “The New Antieconomics” “Economics is about human action and choice within the context of scarcity. The problem facing economists is how to understand and explain human betterment, which is another way of saying production. The critical question, posed correctly by economist Per Bylund, starts with scarcity as the default point for understanding purposive human behavior. Antieconomics, by contrast, starts with abundance and works backward. It emphasizes redistribution, not production, as its central focus. At the heart of any antieconomics is a positivist worldview, the assumption that individuals and economies can be commanded by legislative fiat.”

Dr. Bhakdi: “ORGANS OF DEAD VACCINATED PROVES AUTO IMMUNE ATTACK” 16.5 minutes. Autoimmune attacks on heart, lungs, liver, and so on.

Steve Kirsch: “Bhakdi/Burkhardt pathology results show 93% of people who died after being vaccinated were killed by the vaccine” “If the autopsy findings are confirmed by other pathologists with additional samples, and if they are combined with the findings of Dr. Hoffe (>60% inoculant recipients have elevated D-dimer tests and evidence of clotting) and Dr. Cole (increase in cancers after inoculation, including twenty-fold increase in uterine cancer), we are seeing a disaster of unimaginable proportions.  The conclusion (if supported by further data) is that essentially EVERY inoculant recipient suffers damage, with more damage after each shot.  Given the seriousness of the types of damage (autoimmune diseases, cancer, re-emergent dormant infections, clotting/strokes, cardiac damage, etc.), these effects will translate into lifespan reduction, which should be counted as deaths from the inoculations.  So, in the USA, where ~200M people have been fully inoculated, the number of deaths will not be the 10,000 or so reported in VAERS, or the 150,000+ scaled-up deaths from VAERS, but could be closer to tens of millions when the inoculation effects play out!

Are you surprised to see this on “Cultural Superiority Isn’t Racism: Why Western Values Underpin the World’s Best Countries” Great essay!

David Solway: “Is Western Civ on the Way Out?” “When a civilization decides it wants to destroy itself, it seems there is no stopping it. As Toynbee wisely said, civilizations do not die of murder but of suicide. It is in its way a perversely exhilarating spectacle: not many get to see in their lifetime a civilization coming to pieces before their very eyes, like a star going supernova. But it is also, and principally, a tragic spectacle, for this is the detritus we leave our children… If Benn and Spengler are right, and the Books of Revelation and Daniel are indeed prophetic, there is no saving a civilization that has surrendered its informing principles of intellectual vitality and belief in itself and that has lost the will to survive. Surely, if our knowledge of history—of who we are—and the inclination toward reason remain incomplete or defective, we can only expect to suffer what we have imprudently attempted to remake. Any hope of at least deferring the inevitable resides in the efforts of a brave and enlightened cultural residue, currently under prolonged and unappeasable attack by the befuddled heirs of a sustaining yet despised civilization.”

With respect to Solway’s essay – I have spent a lifetime living and working with the left, from my nuclear family to my colleagues in academia. I have to say, more in sorrow than in anger, that the left are horribly mentally ill. The problem is that our polity is built around the principle that the mentally ill have just as much say in governing it as do mentally healthy people. We are inclined to indulge their illness rather than put up a fight. We should not have to tolerate it. We need a new form of political structure that marginalizes the mentally ill. I have some ideas, which are probably workable only in New America. The current form of America will drag healthy people down in a sea of mental illness. We will not cure our problems even with a Republican wave in 2022 and Trump back in the White House. We need to separate.

HOW BITCOIN WILL CONQUER THE WORLD” This is an interesting perspective. I have some qualms.

One of my qualms with cryptocurrency is its hypervolatility. The graph below depicts weekly percentage price changes in gold and in bitcoin, from January 2017 through December 2021. Can you spot the difference? The measure we usually use for variability, called the standard deviation, is 6 times higher for bitcoin than it is for gold. The major functions of money are: 1) a medium of exchange; 2) a unit of accounting; 3) a store of value. Bitcoin, the most stable of the cryptocurrencies, certainly fails that last test.
