The Welsh Government is desperate, today, to let me know that 3,115 people have died of Covid-19 so far this year. Unfortunately we have no idea if that figure is true or not as the PCR test is riddled with false positives and there is a complete lack of standardisation.
Anyway I digress, this is almost broadly the same figure as I estimate have died from air pollution in Wales this year using the figures for the UK as a whole from the European Heart Journal and adjusting for population (64,000 deaths per year in the UK thus Wales with a population of 3.15 million (64,000 x 3,150,000/66,000,000) will have around 3054 deaths per annum.
These air pollution deaths have been happening year on year, affecting a younger demographic than Covid-19 (childrens’ immature lungs are often affected worse). Filling hospital beds just the same as CV19, people gasping for breath just the same, relatives mourning the loss of family members just the same but no panic, no hysteria, no trashed economy just a price we have all accepted we are happy to pay. But people are dying just the same and you dear reader are still no doubt driving your car and ordering you parcels online (that come all the way from China).
Seems some deaths are more ‘worthy’ than others. Presumably as the hysterical rush around shouting for someone to save them from Covid 19, whilst handing away their hard won civil liberties they did not bat an eyelid whilst the parents of Ella Kissi-Debrah wept for their child?
She was first taken to hospital in 2010 after a coughing fit that followed a spike in air pollution levels. She was subsequently admitted to hospital 27 times over three years. Many of these coincided with recorded peaks in air pollution. Her mother, Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, said she had resuscitated Ella between 20 and 30 times while waiting for an ambulance. She said that Ella had been treated in five separate hospitals. Thick mucus clogged Ella’s lungs and eventually killed her.
In modern English, a cult is a social group that is defined by its unusual religious, spiritual, or philosophical beliefs, or by its common interest in a particular personality, object, or goal.
It has become apparent that people who believe that Covid-19 is an exceptional disease and that lockdowns, masks and all the rest exhibit what can only be seen as cult like behaviour. This can be seen in the mass delusional behaviour such as weekly clapping for the NHS, the iconograpy of ‘NHS rainbows’ and the zeal with which those who have not fallen under the spell are hated. If you don’t comply with the mask wearing symbolism (for there is little evidence masks serve any useful purpose) you are looked upon, at best, with scorn and at worst with hatred.
It is also clear that it doesn’t matter how much evidence you present the cult believers with they will not believe it (if it contradicts their beliefs) and alter their view. Now dear reader perhaps you have joined the cult. Perhaps you believe that Covid-19 is the biggest threat to humanity ever, perhaps you believe all the government propaganda and statistics, the stark horror messages, the deliberately confusing rules?
Now let me show you one statistic that cannot easily be fudged – deaths. This chart (below), from the Oxford Centre for Evidence based Medicine, shows deaths in England and Wales for the last 5 years. It is clear to see that there were significant increased deaths in April and May when Covid-19 appeared. These deaths were in the main the very elderly with co-morbidities. These deaths themselves were probably exacerbated by a previous ‘soft’ flu season and some collateral deaths caused by people not getting their usual medical tests and treatments due to the scare.
Since then, other than a slight upturn in the last few weeks (probably due to increased mobility due to schools and universities returning) things have been broadly normal. Even those recent increased figures are below the flu deaths that can be seen in January 2018. Nothing unusual has been going on since the end of May 2020 but the cult still believes that Covid-19 is a massive threat to their lives. They will now happily do anything the cult leaders require.
The key thing to remember is that criticising the cult or group, however irrational their beliefs are, is the same as criticising your friend or family member themselves. They believe totally in the cult and it is very difficult to de-programme them.
A quick trawl of the internet seems to confirm my theory:
Cults are attractive because they promote an illusion of comfort. Humans desire comfort, and in a fearful and uncertain world many turn to cults because they tend to promote exactly that. Jon-Patrik Pedersen, a psychologist at CalTech, has pointed out that cult leaders often make promises that are totally unattainable, but also offered by no other group in society. Such things might include financial security, total health, constant peace of mind, and eternal life — the things every human desires at the deepest level.
Cults satisfy the human desire for absolute answers. Today’s world is a tough one, with more abstract issues than there are issues that are black and white. As Dr. Adrian Furnham describes in Psychology Today, humans crave clarity. Many people join cults because they believe they’re being offered solid, absolute answers for questions such as good vs. evil, religion, the meaning of life, politics, etc. Many cult leaders promote messages that are simple and seem to make sense, the exact opposite of what we’re often provided with in typical, everyday life.
Cults maintain their power by promoting an “us vs. them” mentality. Cults prove powerful because they are able to successfully isolate members from their former, non-cult lives. One of the ways cult leaders achieve this is to convince their followers that they are superior to those not in the cult. This “us vs. them” mentality ultimately leads to cult members isolating themselves socially from friends and family. They replace those relationships with new ones inside the cult.
Cult leaders are masters at mind control. Brainwashing:: Cult leaders are known to repeat various lies and distortions until members find it difficult to distinguish between reality and cult life. Paranoia: To maintain a false sense of comfort, cults often rely on paranoia tactics. Cult leaders convince their victims that a group, their families, and/or the government is out to get them, but that the cult can provide safety. Once a cult member comes to the conclusion that their families and country cannot keep them safe, they begin to worship and put all of their faith in their cult leader. Jim Jones was especially skilled at this mind-control trick. He would encourage members to spy on each other, and consistently spoke through loudspeakers at all hours of the day so that cult members would hear his voice whether awake or asleep.
Cult members often have no idea they’re in a cult. Although it can be obvious to those around them, people in cults often don’t realize what they have become a part of. Psychologist Dr. Margaret Thaler Singer spent most of her career studying the psychology of cults and brainwashing. She found that most people enter a cult willingly, without realizing the power it is bound to have over them. Singer theorizes that this is partly because some people are more willing to see the perceived benefits than they are the potential dangers. She also mentions that many people assume cults are only religious, though in truth, cults can also be political groups, lifestyle groups, or business groups.
The initiation into the Covid Cult began in January, when the government and media turned on ‘The Fear’ with projections of hundreds of millions of deaths and fake photos of people dropping dead in the streets. The psychological conditioning has continued for months. The public have been subjected to a constant stream of propaganda, manufactured hysteria, wild speculation, conflicting directives, exaggerations, lies, and tawdry theatrical effects. Lockdowns, emergency ‘Nightingale Hospitals and morgues. The singing-dancing NHS staff, ritualised ‘clapping for the NHS, manipulated statistics, masks and all the rest of it.
It has then been perpetuated via lockdowns, mask wearing (showing compliance), regular and nonsensical changes of rules that are deliberately confusing as confusion helps perpetuate the scare along with scary graphics like the one below.
The question that now arises is how do we get out of the situation? And, truth be told, I’m not sure that we can. Vaccines are of course seen as the saviour but why do we need a vaccine for a disease that 99.75% 0f people survive?
Why do we need a vaccine where, at the time of writing, none of the vaccine trials are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths? Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus.
So if this vaccine cannot stop transmission, well you’ll obviously need another one and so on and so an. At this stage I’d suggest that you start to follow the money and ask yourself who is benefiting from this?
It seems that we have opened Pandora’s box and that there is probably no going back. We have a public who are too dumb to see the truth and an elite (parasites) together with the corporations who seek to impose their ‘moneyed agenda’.
Whilst You Were Asleep a Right Wing Coup Took Place
Not mine, but I wish it were. Apparently from Miriam Margolyes. This is spot on.
“The United Kingdom has fallen. There has been a right wing coup in this country… . And nobody noticed. We did not notice because it was years in the making. We did not notice because when it came, it came in a blonde wig and a mask of buffoonery. We did not notice because it lied to us and hid its true intent. We did not notice because the foreign manipulation was hidden from us and continues to be hidden from us. We did not notice, because the lies when they were discovered were hidden by more lies, until lack of truth became normal and acceptable. We didn’t notice because it appealed to our basest nature. It cried racist, it cried xenophobe, it falsified a threat to our way of life and blamed others. We did not notice because we accepted all the promises and lies and now we cannot admit to our gullibility.
Make no mistake it has been moving steadily and stealthily. Have you not noticed how Parliament has been emasculated and how decisions are now taken by a few in a closed room? Have you noticed how the judiciary is being sidelined? Have you noticed how the media are controlled and access to news is restricted? The BBC merely mouths faceless government sources and the papers howl racist xenophobic and government-fed lies? Have you noticed how the police, under cover of COVID, are being encouraged gradually to interfere more and more in our lives? Have you noticed how we are being encouraged to report ‘unsocial behaviour’ in our neighbour’s? Have you noticed how the impartial Civil Service is being packed with yes men and government cronies? Committee after committee is rigged with government-friendly sympathisers. Even now a review of the Armed Services is underway. Have you noticed how every means of objection or complaint is being stealthily closed? Have you noticed the intention to lower food standards, animal and environmental standards and abandon the guarantees of our basic human rights? Have you noticed how measures trumpeted as keeping foreigners out, actually make it harder for US to leave?
Finally have you noticed how the government is engineering circumstances under which everyone’s lives will be so much harder and under which we will have so much more to worry about than complain about our government? Meanwhile the rape and asset-stripping of the country has already begun, with million-pound contracts awarded to cronies with no apparent expertise, siphoning money from the public purse to the private pocket and delivering nothing. It may already be too late but surely the time has come to cry enough! To stand up against the lies, the manipulation, the takeover of our Society. This government does not govern for the people; this government is governing for itself. It has become an enemy of the people, its actions are treasonous. Surely it is time to demand better, time to TAKE BACK CONTROL.”
Meanwhile here’s the Musical Covid 19 that spells it out for you.
Well here we are at the end of May 2020 and still under ‘house arrest’ here in our home in Wales because of a virus that has an infection fatality rate similar to flu.
Admittedly it’s not a bad place to be ‘holed up’ as you can see from the photo I took yesterday when we got up at 4.30 to walk up the otherside of the valley to watch the sunrise at 5.08 a.m. I’m sure many reading this will look at the photo and say ‘what is he complaining about?‘.
I can’t really imagine what it must be like to be trapped in a small flat or an H.M.O. with an abusive partner or to be struggling with mental health issues or a million and one other things whilst being unable to leave home.
The freedom to leave your house when you wish to and go where you will is not a civil liberty or a political liberty. It is part of being a free man or woman. Those who do not have it, who fear being scolded like a child, fined and disgraced for being out on the street without government approval, are like serfs tied to the land they work. So sorry, officer. I won’t do it again. Only it is worse. Those who willingly accepted this subjection were previously free, thanks not to themselves but to forebears who first won and then repeatedly preserved their liberty from threats within and without.
Then this generation of morons came, and undid the work of a thousand years in a few weeks. Worse, in a way—they gave away something they had a duty to pass on undamaged to their children. They did not even raise a word of protest. And they did not trade in their birthrights because soldiers cut them down in the fields, or foreign soldiers lounged in the streets with machine pistols, or secret police threatened them with death or labour camps. They did it because they could not be bothered to think or argue or object. They did it because ignorance is the new normal.
Here in Wales the Welsh government are particularly barking mad wanting to be seen as ‘stronger and better than England’ in the crisis. I’ve tried writing to engage my Welsh Assembly Member or as they now call themselves – Member of the Senedd. So far my democratic representative Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price has ignored one letter and two emails from me since March. Quite how I’m meant to engage with our ‘democracy’ is a mystery to me when the bloke whose wages I’m partly paying won’t talk to me I don’t know.
Again I did try writing to my MP, again Plaid Cymru, Mr Jonathan Edwards. I sent him a detailed email with a number of links to scientific papers. He wrote back to tell me that he didn’t believe in ‘herd immunity’ and that Consultants had told him that 600,000 people in Wales were at risk of becoming seriously ill. As I write this several weeks later a grand total of 13,913 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in Wales (not seriously ill by the way) and 1,331 have died (mostly elderly with comorbidities) – seems your consultants were way off the mark there Jonathan (just as I told you)
Anyway it’s great to know that he knows way more than the Nobel prize winning scientist Professor Michael Levitt
I really should start taking my MP Jonathan Edwards more seriously since he managed to get arrested last week as well. What a busy boy.
England has started to ease restrictions but here in Wales that has changed very slightly. The latest measures here in Wales which tells us that we’re allowed to leave our homes to meet friends outside, but have to stay local and within five miles. Yes you are seriously at risk of transmitting a magical (and fairly normal) virus whilst driving around in your car.
However the scary part when this was announced was that Mark Drakeford, the First Minister of Wales and Leader of the Welsh Labour Party, said “we are offering people permission…” Sorry? I thought this was a free country? I understand we have emergency powers in place, but shouldn’t the politicians be talking about “we are returning some of the civil liberties we have withdrawn” instead?
I should of course write to my democratic representatives to point this out. But the one won’t reply to me at all and the other might be too busy involved in discussions with his solicitor.
Meanwhile to cheer myself up here is a great video that is both funny and very scary when you observe how compliant people are.
“What’s infuriating about manipulations by the Non Profit Industrial Complex is that they harvest the goodwill of the people, especially young people. They target those who were not given the skills and knowledge to truly think for themselves by institutions which are designed to serve the ruling class. Capitalism operates systematically and structurally like a cage to raise domesticated animals. Those organizations and their projects which operate under false slogans of humanity in order to prop up the hierarchy of money and violence are fast becoming some of the most crucial elements of the invisible cage of corporatism, colonialism and militarism.” – Hiroyuki Hamada
Recently my Facebook page and mainstream media both seem to be full of articles and praise for the young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. Now I’ll start by saying that I’m sure her intentions are honourable, I’m sure that she is one hundred percent genuine and indeed that the effects of climate change are real – although the cause of climate change is not necessarily clear as the conclusion in this excellent recent research paper shows: Propagation of Error and the Reliability of Global Air Temperature Projections concluding as it does with the sentance ‘ The unavoidable conclusion is that a temperature signal from anthropogenic CO2 emissions (if any) cannot have been, nor presently can be, evidenced in climate observables. ‘ Although personally I do believe that we have to accept the 97% climate scientist consensus that global warming is caused by human activity.
The claim by her mother that ‘She can see carbon dioxide with the naked eye. She sees how it flows out of chimneys and changes the atmosphere in a landfill‘ should ring a few alarm bells. Incidentally her mother is Swedish opera singer and celebrity Malena Ernman who has apparently made 10 albums and had two hit singles and appeared in the Eurovision contest. Her father is actor Svante Thunberg, while her grandfather is actor and director Olof Thunberg.
However, she is being manipulated by the world’s financial elites, via vehicles like large environmental NGOs, to serve a pre-existing agenda having more to do with expanding capitalism than reversing or mitigating climate change. Basically she and most of the public (including possibly you dear reader) are being ‘played’.
Much of this is detailed in very great depth by independent reporter Cory Morningstar. This is published here, unfortunately it is a very dense and detailed read; but for anyone wishing to examine what is really going on I would suggest ‘sticking with it’.
Since writing this I’ve found a series of podcasts where these (well the first ones anyway) are read
As an aside I can find very little, anywhere on the internet, on how much money is actually funding this 15/16 year old’s well orchestrated publicity jaunt around the world. Update (26.09.19) Cory Morningstar has done another excellent piece examining the government organisations, companies and non profit organisations who are involved. It can be read here.
I never actually thought I’d find myself agreeing with Jeremy Clarkson who wrote; Anyway, this means that Miss Thingamajig will have to go to New York, and obviously she can’t use a plane, because she’ll be called a hypocrite. So this, then, is her opportunity to show the world that there are practical, sensible alternatives to a quick seven-hour flight on a Boeing 747. And she’s done just that, saying that she will make the trip on a 60ft racing yacht.
Naturally, this has made all her disciples very happy, but hang on a minute. What’s the message? That the half a million people who fly every day from Europe to America should use a £15m yacht instead? It gets worse, because if you examine the yacht she’s using, it’s not as green as you might imagine. First of all, it is equipped with a diesel engine. Ha. You didn’t know that I knew that, but I do. And second, it’s made mostly from carbon fibre, which cannot be recycled effectively and which uses 14 times more energy to produce than steel. Which can be recycled very easily indeed.
Some good points Jeremy even if I do think you are part of the problem.
For anyone who doesn’t have the time to read all the articles I linked to I would suggest that you listen the interview with Cory Morningstar starting at about 8.20
There is no point me repeating much of what Cory has already published; if you are truly interested you will read it, assess it and formulate your own opinions. If you can’t be arsed well stick to the Daily Mail and the other main stream establishment propaganda and keep your head in the sand.
But Greta Thunberg is being strategically exploited by the World Bank, the UN, and the non-profit industrial complex that serves the ruling classes. They are using her to advance their own self-interests and objectives – that are in direct opposition to everything this young woman articulates. This is being presented as a “leaderless movement” – very much the “New Power” methodology and religion for the capitalists – theorized by Jeremy Heimans (Avaaz/Purpose) for mass movement building – that serves the most powerful and destructive forces on the planet.
The manipulation of young, malleable minds is at the foundation of Western indoctrination in order to insulate a failing system and mask the market solutions being designed to address it. Market “solutions” that benefit the rich at the expense of the environment. Hence, the youth are always the sacrificial lambs of the profit and non-profit industrial complex.
One must question anything applauded by the Royal families of Europe, or by billionaires in general. Those billionaires will not betray their class, rest assured. The billionaires and corporate interests behind Greta Thunberg are not looking to help the poor and working class; they are looking for massive land grabs and further raids on pensions, social security, and what’s left of working class and socialist movements. Big money orchestrating the Thunberg phenomenon. The ruling class stick together.
Conspiracy theory used to be reserved for invisible helicopters and such, now it’s simply any class analysis. Anytime someone points out who is funding a project there are cries of conspiracy theory.
Why would any rational person look at the Greta phenomenon and not grasp that it is manufactured? There is a lot of money behind this girl. But the non-profit industrial complex, the UN, the World Bank and IMF — they don’t do things altruistically. Capitalism is investment, not virtue. Capitalism created the crisis, it won’t solve it.
Greta is not anti-capitalist. She may say a few things that suggest, vaguely, an anti-capitalist sensibility, but the reality (which is what Morningstar provides) is that she works for big money, corporations and FOR capitalism.
A few people might get offended here. Good, because the British public needs a fecking big ‘wake up’ call as we head towards another Remembrance Day.
The red poppy was once a symbol to remind us of the senseless massacre of millions upon millions of people in muddy fields far away from home. The poppy was supposed to say never again to the horrors of a spat between politicians murdering a generation. In Britain it has been turned into a symbol of militarism It is being used as jingoistic propaganda and is now being hijacked by the right wing and the message is no longer ‘remember the senseless slaughter‘ but ‘support our brave lads‘.
We stopped wearing the red poppy quite a few years ago as we realised what was actually happening. The ‘poppy mafia’ certainly seems to have grown stronger in recent years.
Policing of wearing the poppy has grown absurd: public figures face attacks, all the way up to death threats, for not wearing one. There are fucking poppies all over everything, including buses, police cars and ambulances.
Meanwhile, opinion pieces glorifying the deaths in the First World War seem to be on the rise. Should you raise your head to say ‘actually this all wrong‘ you’ll be berated by the mob (which is I seem to recall what happened to those resisting facism before the Second World War in Germany).
They want us to forget what happened and pretend, as they did a hundred years ago, as though wars are nothing more than a jolly good lark. They brainwash children: not to mourn, but to strive to emulate. They want us to think that having a military (to invade god knows where next) is actually a ‘good thing’ and necessary. It is only necessary for the Military Industrial Complex where it means huge profits for the arms dealers just as it did back in the First World War.
This is what war and ultimately the red poppy is about MONEY. They want a guillable, jingoistic public who will swallow the next war and deaths of young people so that they can still make MONEY.
That is why these children are being indoctrinated (note the ‘Future Soldier’ T Shirts) in the UK and yet in a few years’ time, if they follow the naive dream they are being steered towards, we could be seeing them shipped back in coffins. With a symbol, it is all too easy to simply radicalise children into militarism (sound familiar?).
More about how the poppy has been compromised through its collaboration with some of the world’s most controversial arms dealers, its increasingly militarised presentation of Remembrance, and its commercialised and trivialising corporatisation of the poppy “brand” can be found in an excellent download here
The detention, this week, of David Miranda at Heathrow airport under the Terrorism Act should send a shiver through every right thinking citizen of the UK. It probably won’t because most people are too busy trying to keep their jobs and keep their heads above water than to worry about remote legislation that they don’t think will ever affect them.
However, it is clear to me that this legislation is being routinely misused by the authorities. How do I know? Because I was on the receiving end a couple of years ago. Here is what I wrote to my MP at the time; it seems pretty prophetic in view of this weeks events.
More recently (September 2010) I travelled to Cork via Swansea Ferry terminal. As I queued, in my vehicle, to get on the ferry I was stopped by port security under the provisions of The Ship and Port Facility (Security) Regulations 2004 and was asked by the member of staff where I was going. Resisting the impulse to laugh out loud (as the Irish Ferry was moored 500 metres away and there was no where else to go) I asked him was he sure he had the power to ask me that question and under what legislation was he asking it. He clearly did not have a clue as to what powers he might have. At that stage he detained me before fetching a Police Officer who questioned me under the Terrorism Act before letting me proceed.
On my return I had subsequent correspondence (with a very reluctant Ian Meredith Port Facilities & Security Manager, ABP South Wales Ports) with AB Ports Swansea. At first he claimed that the above legislation gave powers to question travellers about their journey, when pressed he had to admit that he had no such powers. But he has stated in writing that he cannot guarantee that it will not happen again. As I understand it the Security staff at the port are actually private contractors. So in this instance a private citizen going about their legal business is detained by a private contractor who has no power to do so, asked a ludicrous question about their private travel arrangements and then after being detained is questioned by a Police officer under the terrorism legislation. The irony is exquisite in that the law abiding citizen is questioned because of the failure of security staff to work within the law as it exists. It is astonishing that such intrusive questions are being asked by private contractors.
I hope that it is as apparent to you, as it is to me that we are ‘sleepwalking’ into a Police State. As a citizen of a free democratic society I should be able to go about my life without the state asking (and possibly) recording details of where I am going to and from. I accept that there are circumstances where further enquiries are necessary and in this case questions should only be asked where they are necessary and proportionate.
