Pathologized Totalitarianism 101

Germans Salute Hitler

Germans cheer Adolf Hitler on his 51st birthday as he stands on the balcony of the Reich Chancellory.
So, GloboCap has crossed the Rubicon. The final phase of its transformation of society into a pathologized-totalitarian dystopia, where mandatory genetic-therapy injections and digital compliance papers are commonplace, is now officially underway.

On November 19, 2021, the government of New Normal Austria decreed that, as of February, experimental mRNA injections will be mandatory for the entire population. This decree comes in the midst of Austria's official persecution of "the Unvaccinated," i.e., political dissidents and other persons of conscience who refuse to convert to the new official ideology and submit to a series of mRNA injections, purportedly to combat a virus that causes mild-to-moderate flu-like symptoms (or no symptoms of any kind at all) in about 95% of the infected and the overall infection fatality rate of which is approximately 0.1% to 0.5%.

Austria is just the tip of the New Normal spear. Prominent New-Normal fascists in Germany, like Der Führer of Bavaria, Markus Söder, and Minister of Propaganda Karl Lauterbach, are already calling for an allgemeine Impfpflicht (i.e., "compulsory vaccination requirement"), which should not come as a surprise to anyone.

The Germans are not going sit idly by and let the Austrians publicly out-fascist them, are they? They have a reputation to uphold, after all! Italy will probably be next to join in, unless Lithuania or Australia beats them to the punch.

But, seriously, this is just the beginning of the Winter Siege I wrote about recently. The plan seems to be to New-Normalize Europe first — generally speaking, Europeans are more docile, respectful of all authority, and not very well armed — and then use it as leverage to force the new pathologized totalitarianism on the USA, and the UK, and the rest of the world.

I do not believe this plan will succeed. In spite of the longest and most intensive propaganda campaign in the history of propaganda, there remain enough of us who steadfastly refuse to accept the "New Normal" as our new reality.

And a lot of us are angry, extremely angry ... militantly, explosively angry.


Switzerland: The World's Last Bastion of Democracy?

In a lively rally under full autumn sun, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. addressed a crowd of about 10 to 20 thousand people in Bern. He talked about the covid lies in the US, as well as around the globe. He did not spare Europe, which allows kids being vaccinated from an age as low as 5 years - just like in the US, the Big Brother. He pointed out that the death rate in children from what they falsely call a vaccine was a multiple of the covid fatality in children.

The manifestation in Bern was organized by the Swiss Public Eye, an Association created in 1968, with the objective of demanding fairer relations between Switzerland and the world's poorest countries. Public Eye, with its currently 27,000 members, also stands for fairness in trade relations and defends human and civil rights in Switzerland and around the world.

Mr. Robert Kennedy Jr. came to Bern for a specific reason, and what he said to the Swiss is that Switzerland was the Last Bastion of Democracy in the World. The upcoming Referendum on 28 November 2021, where the Swiss have the opportunity to vote for or against a Covid Law - a Martial Law in disguise - that had quietly been ratified in September 2020 by Parliament, but had to be put on ice, because a referendum was immediately launched against it. This referendum collected in record time a record number of signatures - never seen before in Switzerland.


The US is preparing a biological time bomb in Kazakhstan

lab setting
The Open Regulations website and the website of the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructural Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan recently published information on the Kazakh government's intention to build a "BSL-4 laboratory and underground storage facility for a collection of dangerous and highly dangerous strains" in the south of the country in the Korday district of Zhambyl Region in the village of Gvardeisky. It is where the Research Institute for Biological Security Problems, now part of the Science Committee of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan, which now works mainly on Pentagon research programmes, has been located since Soviet times. The "Laboratory" is scheduled to start construction at the beginning of 2022 and be completed in the Q4 2025. Its code BSL-4 stands for Biosafety Level 4.

An explanatory note from Kazakh Minister Beibut Atamkulov states that Deputy Prime Minister Yeraly Tugzhanov gave the relevant instruction on October 25. Section 3 of the project document hints that no funds from the budget would be required to build such a hazardous facility, suggesting the involvement of the US Department of Defense's Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which has already been allocated funds for this "project".

UK gov slips in bill allowing revocation of citizenship without notice, claims it's 'conducive to public good'

The home secretary, Priti Patel, can revoke British citizenship when it would be 'conducive to the public good'.
People will no longer need to be notified that they are being stripped of their citizenship, thanks to a clause smuggled into the nationality and borders bill last week. This is an unfair and draconian measure that MPs ought to be ashamed to pass into law. How can a person challenge a decision that they do not know about? It is hard to imagine that the home secretary, Priti Patel, who has agitated for the death penalty, would lose any sleep over enacting such an unjust, authoritarian measure. But she should think again.

The principle of rule of law is that an individual has a right to know of a decision before their rights can be adversely affected. Currently, the Home Office has to make some effort to contact someone before depriving them of citizenship. Ministers think this legal requirement should be dropped in favour of executive discretion because of the threat, and crucially the fear, of terrorism.

The new power is exceptionally broad: notice will not be needed if it would not be "reasonably practicable" to give it; or in the interests of "national security" or diplomatic relations; or for other "public interest" reasons.

Comment: Terrorism and 'national security' are often used to justify totalitarian measures such as these, when it's almost certain that there are already laws on the books to deal with the very few, serious cases that this new bill aims to target.

Comment: The UK is sliding into a dystopian nightmare all under guise of the 'public good':

Jan. 6 riot "an attack" on NATO according to Jens Stoltenberg

Biden and Stoltenberg
Watch below as NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg calls January 6 "an attack... on the core values of NATO."

With dramatic and overly self-serious gusto, Stoltenberg told Axios' Jonathan Swan: "I regard that as an attack on the core democratic institutions of the United States and therefore also on core values of NATO."


'Embarrassing': UK PM Boris Johnson criticised for (exceptionally) rambling speech, compares himself to Moses, praises cartoon pig

Boris Johnson praises Peppa Pig in bizarre CBI speech
Boris Johnson has been criticised by senior business leaders and Conservative MPs for a "rambling" speech to top industry figures that saw him extensively praise Peppa Pig World, compare himself to Moses and imitate the noise of an accelerating car.

The prime minister's sprawling address to the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) was accused of lacking seriousness and professionalism. Johnson lost his place during the speech and spent 20 seconds repeating "forgive me" as he shuffled the printed pages on his podium.

Some hoped the speech would be a chance for Johnson to announce proper policy in the pursuit of his "levelling up" agenda. However, the speech at the Port of Tyne near South Shields only contained an announcement about changing building regulations to ensure all new homes and buildings in England have electric vehicle charging points installed from next year.

Comment: This is the government insidiously rolling out the Build Back Better green agenda whilst aspiring home owners struggle with house prices higher than they were before the crash of 2008.

Comment: It's said that the people get the leaders that they deserve: Something is wrong with the President

Pepe Escobar: String of pearls: Yemen could be the Arab hub of the Maritime Silk Road

If Ansarallah and the Yemeni army win this war, Yemen could emerge as the region's main Arab maritime hub
The usual suspects tried everything against Yemen.

First, coercing it into 'structural reform.' When that didn't work, they instrumentalized takfiri mercenaries. They infiltrated and manipulated the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), ISIS. They used US drones and occasional marines.

And then, in 2015, they went Total Warfare: a UN-backed rogue coalition started bombing and starving Yemenis into submission - with barely a peep from the denizens of the 'rules-based international order.'

The coalition - House of Saud, Qatar, UAE, US, UK - for all practical purposes, embarked on a final solution for Yemen.

US achieved 'energy independence' under Trump, Biden stopped that and is now asking OPEC to produce more oil

oil america
With energy prices spiking, President Biden went to OPEC and asked them to produce more oil. American energy companies tell Biden he can get the oil cheaper and faster by removing restrictions and asking American companies to produce more oil.

In 2020 the last year of the Trump presidency, the American economy reached a long-desired goal, energy independence. However, during Biden's first days in the White House, he signed executive orders stopping drilling on federal land, including the much-desired drilling at ANWR in Alaska. He canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and recently announced is considering shutting down the L5 pipeline running from Michigan to Canada. . These executive orders sent energy companies a message that he intended to keep his promise to kill the fossil fuel industry.

Worried their businesses were facing attacks from team Biden, energy companies became reluctant to commit more money into new oil and gas production. Also, institutional investors who have traditionally invested in fossil fuel companies have become energy woke. They have cut them out of investment portfolios entirely,

Comment: A similar situation is unfolding over in Europe whereby, despite being desperate for a reliable and affordable energy supply, Germany is refusing to certify Nord Stream II, likely due to US pressure.

Your guide to the new (slave) economy

New Economy
© Corbett Report
Congratulations! You've spent the last 14 years or so since the Global Financial Crisis getting up to speed on all the financial lingo and now you can finally wrap your mind around the reality inversion bubble and explain the intricacies of the ratings game and bore people at cocktail parties with a detailed account of how HFTs are ruining the markets.

Good work!

. . . But guess what? That's all outdated!

As I pointed out last week, we are entering into a Brave New Neofeudal Net Zero Economy and all the verities of the old economic order are being thrown out the window. Make no mistake: they don't call it a "New World Order" for nothing and they aren't kidding around when they call for a "Great Reset."

Yes, the world is changing fast in this decade of transformation and now there's a bewildering new array of acronyms and asset classes to learn about. So buckle in and get ready for a crash course in the new (slave) economy.


Unprecedented abuse of power: What the media still isn't telling you about the Cuomo debacle

Cuomo and James

Andrew Cuomo and Letitia James in 2018
If irony were a psychoactive compound, the amount produced by Andrew Cuomo's departure from office last August would've been enough to cause a rash of fatal overdoses. In the span of just a few months, Cuomo went from being one of the country's most formidable and even fearsome elected officials, to having the prefix "disgraced" obligatorily attached to his "former governor" job title. This after being exposed, purportedly, as a serial sexual predator. Sure — there have been dramatic falls from grace before. But this one was on some other level.

Cuomo of course already commanded a large national profile before 2020, but thanks to a wave of corporate media adulation during the height of COVID, he was transformed into a newfound "national hero" and noble foil to Donald Trump — with murmurs that he'd even launch a late bid for president. "Andrew Cuomo may be the single most popular politician in America right now," one representative CNN headline blared.

Then, in a brutal Shakespearean twist of fate, a slew of curiously choreographed "accusations" emerged — and in the blink of an eye, many of those same media operators turned on him like it was nothing.
