Brace yourself for impact: Elite launch 'Great Collapse' of Western civilization

Klaus schwab
You know time is running out on the false reality in which most Americans live when the corporate-owned mainstream media starts to report some of the things that we in the alternative media have been reporting for years.

I've been warning since 2018: America is heading toward civil war. For the last six months or so many of us have been warning about the creaky supply chain.

That chain is getting ready to buckle and break like a water pipe in the dead of winter, when frigid air sneaks in from the north.

It usually happens in the middle of the night, while everyone is sleeping in their warm beds. Under the stress of steadily dropping temperatures, the pipe starts to expand. Now compromised, the pipe starts to drip, then suddenly it pops. Water gushes out and into the house.

At that point, you have a big mess on your hands. If only you'd seen the cold weather coming, you would have wrapped your pipes and protected them from the damage.

That's how I see the U.S. supply chain right now. The pressure is building while the façade of normalcy reigns in the lives of 90 percent of American families. As they sleepwalk through life, they have no idea what kind of pressure is building on those pipes that keep money flowing throughout the global economy.

If Biden backtracked any faster from Tuesday's speech, he'd be moonwalking

US President Joe Biden
If you want a barometer of how well Biden's disastrously ill-considered speech in Georgia on Tuesday went over, look at how the White House is now spinning it:
President Joe Biden was not making a "human" comparison between opponents of pending voting rights bills and historical racists and segregationists in his address in Atlanta this week, the White House says. In his speech calling for new voter protections, Biden asked whether lawmakers wanted "to be the side of Dr. King or George Wallace," "John Lewis or Bull Connor" or "Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis." The comparison generated some blowback afterward, but press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden was not drawing a personal link between current lawmakers and notorious southern segregationists and the president of the Confederacy.

"I think everybody listening to that speech who's speaking on the level, as my mother would say, would note that he was not comparing them as humans, he was comparing the choice to those figures in history and where they're going to position themselves as they determine whether they're going to support the fundamental right to vote or not," she said Friday.
Maybe my favorite criticism came from Nancy Pelosi, who may be 81 years old, but at least is self-aware enough — probably from working with a lot of twentysomething House staffers — to realize that some of Biden's references may also have gone over the heads of people under 60:
"Nobody knows who Bull Connor is. . . . You know, if we're making the case to say, 'We're going to be with Martin Luther King or Bull Connor' — who's that?"

Comment: The importance of this comparison isn't about an old fuddy spouting forgotten references lost on today's generation. It says something about the lessons and nuance lost on the current generation damned to repeat history first hand.

NewsReal: Collapsing Narratives: Medical Misinformation Now Indistinguishable From The Science!

There has been an extraordinary amount of backpedaling of late on 'The Science', with official positions morphing into those held by 'conspiracy theorists' for the last two years. At the same time, however, there is as yet no rollback of the 'crowd control measures' introduced on the basis of said 'Science'.

On this NewsReal, Joe and Niall cover the glaring contrast between official pronouncements about how mild the virus has become, and the increasingly extreme measures governments are nevertheless forcing on populations.

In the second hour, they switch gears to discuss the increasing geopolitical tension between the US and Russia over 'who controls Europe', and the highly explosive Tonga volcano eruption that literally shook the world...

Latest, brilliant Neil Oliver monologue: 'They call us hateful childish idiots, but then, what are they?'

Neil Oliver

Neil Oliver goes there, directly to the epicenter of "build back better." In this monologue not only does Oliver highlight the connective tissue and motives of the elite, but he also references their words to point out the bigger leftist agenda at work.

Point One - The "Build Back Better" agenda (in every nation) was never about anything except radical climate change legislation. Once you accept that baseline, things start to become much clearer.

Point Two - The "Build Back Better" phrase came from the World Economic Forum and was promoted by a multitude of international leaders and left-wing organizations. That reality then brings up the most important point. To get to "building back better", you first need to destroy something. That thing they needed to destroy was the global economic dependency on carbon-based fuel supplies (oil, gas, coal, etc.).

Point Three - In order to destroy the 'something of that scale', the energy program for the entire world, something massive is needed to fundamentally change the entire world approach toward energy production. Something is needed to create the crisis that provides the origin for the process to initiate.


Comment: The author has tacked her own (thoughtful) take on the 'Build Back Better' scheme onto Neil's monologue, which simply takes note of the similarity of language used by leaders to malign dissidents against their schemes as 'less-than-human'.

Regarding hidden motivations for these schemes, the author is - in our opinion - correct about climate change being the larger motivating factor for elites.

The true horror of the situation, however, is that, just as the 'war against the virus' is fanciful because governments cannot affect the trajectories of airborne respiratory viruses, neither can they affect climate change.

Part of the illusion is that they have sold people a misleading version of climate change. What's really coming down the pipe is sudden, catastrophic change, which governments are powerless to stop or even mitigate.

The entire scheme, therefore - Covid-as-trigger, vaccinations-for-control, 'saving the planet' by transforming civilization's infrastructure - is a global exercise in deluding people, keeping them asleep in the false belief that 'governments have this in hand'.

They do not, and they will flee when the sh*t hits the fan...

Tulsi Gabbard knocks Biden admin as 'authoritarian' and 'unacceptable'

Tulsi Gabbard Hannity
Former Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard told "Hannity" Friday that Joe Biden's actions must "not go unchecked" and, the Biden administration is furthering the divide among Americans.

TULSI GABBARD: "I think there were so many people across the country, those who voted for Joe Biden, those who did not vote for Joe Biden, who had high hopes that he would carry out his promise, that he would be the president for all Americans, showing respect for those who agreed with him or disagreed with him. And unfortunately, the opposite is true. Not only has he not carried out on that promise, he is literally doing the exact opposite, rapidly carrying our country in the wrong direction, tearing us apart, pouring fuel on the flames of divisiveness. And it just, I mean, it really makes me wonder how we can go through three more years of this and still come out the other end with the possibility of being able to come together again as Americans, as the United States of America.

2022: The Year Ahead

The Year Ahead
© Corbett Report
I'm sure I don't need to tell you that there are many ways that the current global crisis could play out in 2022 and, sadly, none of them involve everyone joining hands and singing "Kumbaya" until the Gateses and the Schwabs of the world have a change of heart about this whole Great Reset thing.

If you saw New World Next Year 2022, you'll know that I think a cyber 9/11 (and the ensuing passage of an iPatriot Act) is a distinct possibility for the coming year. But that is not the only Ace card in the would-be world controllers' hands.

A "pandemic of the injected" and/or a 5G-generated global health crisis?

The passage of a global pandemic treaty to hardwire the biosecurity state into place?

A bioterror false flag?

Check. Check. Check. All of these cards, too, are in the deck and ready to be dealt. But there is another card in that deck that has been largely neglected for the past two years and I have a feeling we're going to see it laid on the table this year.

So what am I talking about? Luckily, I don't need to look further than the latest headlines to illustrate my point:

Right on the heels of the Kazakhstan fiasco, we have this headline dominating the newswires: "White House: Russia prepping pretext for Ukraine invasion." As the loyal government stenographers over at the Associated Press helpfully explain:
US intelligence officials have determined a Russian effort is underway to create a pretext for its troops to further invade Ukraine, and Moscow has already prepositioned operatives to conduct 'a false-flag operation' in eastern Ukraine, according to the White House.
Wait, what? The White House is now openly warning about the potential for a false flag operation to be used as a pretext for war? What's happening here?

The invocation of the concept of false flag terror in a mainstream media report (let alone such an assertion coming from the lips of "intelligence officials") might raise an eyebrow among us old hands of the 9/11 Truth movement. I'm sure we all remember the days when the very concept of false flag terror had to be painstakingly explained to the average normie . . . so it could then be summarily dismissed as a "conspiracy theory."

But upon closer examination, this acknowledgment of the reality that false flag attacks can be used as a casus belli is not so surprising. In fact, the most vocal conspiracy deniers are only too happy to become conspiracy theorists themselves when discussing their political enemies (like Putin or Assad or Putin or Xi or "anti-vaxxers" or Putin).

Clear Evidence that Flight 77 Hit The Pentagon on 9/11 - a Parody

Pentagon plane
With so much debate going on over what really happened at the Pentagon on 9/11, and the obvious dire lack of coherent commentators to put and end to it once and for all, I decided that it was high time that I added my own reality-based voice to the debate and, in doing so, allow common sense to finally prevail over the ranting of wild-eyed, hairy-knuckled, missing link type conspiracy theorists and liberals alike.

New Virginia governor rescinds mask & vaccine mandate in 1st order UPDATE: Youngkin signs total of 11 Executive Actions

youngkin executive order mask vaccine

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin prepares to sign executive orders in the governors conference room at the Capitol, Jan. 15, 2022, in Richmond, Va.
The state of Virginia will no longer require school children to wear masks and state employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Newly sworn-in Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has pulled mandates requiring children to wear masks and state employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19 as part of his first day in office.

After defeating Democratic candidate and former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe in the November 2021 gubernatorial election, Youngkin - a Republican - stuck by his pledge to lift sweeping coronavirus restrictions imposed by his predecessor.

Comment: UPDATE from Breitbart:
Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin Signals New Leadership with 11 Executive Actions on First Day

Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) signaled a new direction for Virginia on his first day in office, signing 11 executive actions aimed at changing the trajectory of the Commonwealth.

Youngkin signed nine Executive Orders and two Executive Directives, many of which focused on education, the coronavirus, and economic development, according to a press release.

In his first Executive Order as governor, the Virginia Republican promised to "restore excellence in education by ending the use of divisive concepts, including Critical Race Theory, in public education." The second order promised to "empower Virginia parents in their child's education and upbringing by allowing parents to make decisions on whether their child wears a mask in school."

Both orders signal the fulfillment of a major campaign theme about education and parental rights, taking on the Marxist critical race theory indoctrination scheme directly, and opening up the opportunity for parents to choose whether or not to mask their child, a practice that has proven to be detrimental to social development and mental health.

The final education-related order is the fourth, which promises to investigate the Loudoun County School Board which appears to have covered up the rape of a student in order to pass a sweeping transgender bill that would allow boys to use girls' restrooms and locker rooms.


Another coronavirus-related directive promises to "restore individual freedoms and personal privacy by rescinding the vaccine mandate for all state employees."

Youngkin also "declare[d] Virginia open for business," but backed up the order by stating his intention to withdraw from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and cut "job-killing regulations by 25 percent." He also spoke about a new direction for business in his inaugural speech.

Over the past month, as Wall Street turned increasingly optimistic on US growth alongside the Fed, with consensus (shaped by the Fed's leaks and jawboning) now virtually certain of a March rate hike, we have been repeatedly warning that after a huge policy error in 2021 when the Fed erroneously said that inflation is "transitory" (it wasn't), the central bank is on pace to make another just as big policy mistake in 2022 by hiking as many as 4 times and also running off its massive balance sheet... right into a global growth slowdown.
And, as we have also discussed in recent weeks, one place where this growth slowdown is emerging - besides the upcoming deterioration in US consumption where spending is now being funded to record rates by credit cards before it encounters a troubling air pocket - is China and its "covid-zero" policy in general, and its covid-locked down ports in particular.

US official threatens Russia with 'sharp pain' inflicted 'very fast'

Victoria Nuland, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs
The US has some 18 "different scenarios" up its sleeve to react to any form of Russian attack on Ukraine, leading official Victoria Nuland has warned, promising to inflict "sharp pain" on Moscow should it make such a move. Nuland, who currently serves as undersecretary of state for political affairs in President Joe Biden's government, made the thinly veiled threat in an interview with the Financial Times published on Saturday. Nuland said:
"I'm not going to preview 18 different scenarios ... I would simply say that our commitment and the conversation that we have with our allies is around inflicting very sharp pain very fast, if Russia makes this move in any form."
Western media, as well as multiple US officials, have repeatedly warned of an imminent "invasion" of Ukraine by Moscow over the past few months. Washington and its allies have cited the movement of Russian troops within the country's vast Western territory as 'proof' of such plans. Moscow has consistently denied the allegations, insisting it has a right to carry out military maneuvers within its borders as it pleases.

Nuland failed to specify any of the multiple scenarios she hinted at in the interview. At the same time, the official said the US was still open to dialog with Moscow, while revealing that Washington has been working on a written response to the comprehensive security deal draft proposed by Russia.

Comment: When the US comes out with blazing accusations, it is often a cover for its own covert actions. If anyone can deliver 'nasty' it is Nuland.
