Eric Clapton says he sees mass formation psychosis 'everywhere'

eric clapton
Legendary rocker Eric Clapton appeared on the Real Music Observer YouTube channel last week, to discuss vaccination and mass formation psychosis, the theory made popular recently by Dr. Robert Malone.

In the interview, Clapton discusses how he himself took the vaccine, but now regrets it. Clapton says that he was tricked into getting the vaccine early on by subliminal messaging, and warned the public not to fall for the same tricks.

Clapton then discusses mass formation psychosis, a form of mass hysteria, which is described as "a phenomenon that transmits collective illusions of threats, whether real or imaginary, through a population and society as a result of rumors and fear," saying that he initially missed out on the memo for mass formation psychosis, saying that he later realized that there was a memo.

Comment: It's rather amazing how many of rock's legendary 'rebels' are showing themselves to be pusillanimous establishment sell-outs when the official narrative changes. It's nice to have Clapton and Morrison, but where's everybody else? Neil Young is just the latest casualty on a very long list icons to be disappointed in. It looks like 'rebellion' and 'counter-culture' was always just an act to sell records.

Care providers warn about job side effects from mandatory Covid jabs

German care providers warn the sector can't afford further staff shortages under an impending vaccine mandate.

Many German households could "have a problem getting the care they need" if the government makes Covid vaccination compulsory within the healthcare sector, Daniel Schloer, the owner of the SunaCare GmbH agency told Reuters.

Schloer's organization provides 24-hour home care services for the elderly in Germany, matching clients with private nurses from other EU states, primarily Poland.

Comment: It's rather telling that the number of health care workers refusing the vaccine exceeds the proportional number in the general public. Maybe they know something the rest of us don't.

Freedom Convoy: Truckers angry over vaccine mandates roll toward Canada's capital in protest UPDATE: GoFundMe withholding raised funds for truckers

Trucks line up to cross the U.S. border in Sarnia, Ontario, after the COVID-19 vaccine mandate took effect.
'I'm literally going to lose my truck, my house, my car, my savings,' says unvaccinated owner-operator.

Truck drivers in Canada are slow-rolling in convoys across the country to protest the COVID-19 vaccine mandate at the U.S. border, with plans to converge at the capital, Ottawa, on Saturday.

Among them will be Ontario owner-operator Brigitte Belton, who until recently regularly moved freight between the U.S. and Canada. Since Saturday, she and other drivers who haven't been vaccinated against COVID-19 have been barred from crossing the border.


From National Post:
Truck Convoy supporters would be correct in their contention that the protest isn't attracting nearly as much official attention compared to prior protests that have been numerically much smaller, such as the pro-Wet'suwet'en blockades that dominated the national discourse in early 2020. Only on Monday did the convoy first receive acknowledgement from major party leaders. Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole dodged a question on the convoy, while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau obliquely mentioned the protests while accusing Conservatives of "fear mongering" by linking trucker vaccine mandates to supply chain disruptions.

Actually, one of the only major organizations to comment on the protest has been the Canadian Trucking Alliance, who denounced it . The CTA - which previously opposed vaccine mandates on truckers - is now advising truckers to comply and "strongly disapproves" of protests to the contrary . "This regulation is not changing so, as an industry, we must adapt and comply with this mandate," wrote the group in a Saturday statement.
UPDATE: The $4.7 million raised for the truckers via GoFundMe is being withheld by the crowd-sourced funding service. From CBC:
GoFundMe has frozen access to the more than $4.7 million in funds raised by the trucker convoy now winding its way across the country toward Ottawa in a protest against vaccine mandates.

"We require that fundraisers be transparent about the flow of funds and have a clear plan for how those funds will be spent. In this case, we are in touch with the organizer to verify that information," Rachel Hollis, a spokeswoman for the crowdfunding platform, said in an email.

"Funds will be safely held until the organizer is able to provide the documentation to our team about how funds will be properly distributed."

As of Tuesday afternoon, funds were raised from 61,100 donors, according to the GoFundMe page of the "Freedom Convoy."

Tamara Lich, who is also secretary of the fledgling Western separatist Maverick Party, launched the campaign on Jan. 14. It states that the money will go toward fuel as well as food and lodgings for big-riggers taking part.


Ontario, Canada officer under investigation for voicing support for trucker convoy

Erin Howard
A police officer is under investigation after posting a video on social media expressing support for the trucker's freedom convoy headed to Ottawa to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Officer Erin Howard of Ontario posted the video to her Twitter, expressing support for the truckers who left from British Columbia on Sunday.

The convoy deployed in reaction to the Liberal Party's decision to make it mandatory for truckers crossing the borders to be vaccinated.

Comment: Expressing support for the truckers is enough to get you investigated, apparently. Tell us again about how Canada is a "free country."

Emails reveal scientists suspected COVID leaked from Wuhan lab - then quickly censored themselves

Security teams guard the outside of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
From almost the moment the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the medical-research establishment in Washington and London insisted that the virus had emerged naturally. Only conspiracy theorists, they said, would give credence to the idea that the virus had escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Now, a string of unearthed emails — the most recent being a batch viewed by the House Oversight and Reform Committee and referred to in its Jan. 11 letter — is making it seem increasingly likely that there was, in fact, a conspiracy, its aim being to suppress the notion that the virus had emerged from research funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Anthony Fauci.

The latest emails don't prove such a conspiracy, but they make it more plausible for two reasons: because the expert virologists therein present such a strong case for thinking that the virus had lab-made features, and because of the wholly political reaction to this bombshell on the part of Francis Collins, then-director of the National Institutes of Health.

People wearing face masks as a preventive measure against the spread of covid-19 walks along the Street in Ukraine.
Israel is said to be contemplating a mass airlift of those eligible for Israeli citizenship in the case of a Russian invasion

Top officials in Israel are said to be preparing for a scenario in which will they fly out tens of thousands of Jewish people from Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion, a top local newspaper has reported amid persistent Western speculation that Moscow could be planning an all-out offensive.

In a report on Sunday, Haaretz claimed that representatives from several government offices had met over the weekend to discuss the risk of the Jewish community in the Eastern European nation potentially being caught up in a conflict.

The briefing is said to have included officials from the National Security council; the foreign defense, transport, and affairs ministries; as well as those responsible for maintaining relations with Jews residing in territories of the former

Comment: The western psychopathing elites re-accusing Russia for moving its own troops on its own territory, but glorifying the fascism in Ukraine and saying that the movement of the army and weapons to the Ruassian border is nothing to worry about?

How have they come to this bizarre reality?

Bari Weiss slams Biden's 'pandemic of bureaucracy' on Bill Maher

Bari Weiss
Weiss said that the COVID-19 restrictions will be "remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime."

Journalist and author Bari Weiss appeared on TV host Bill Maher's show Friday night and delivered an impassioned discourse on the COVID-19 narrative.

"I'm done with COVID. I'm done!" declared Weiss as the crowd applauded. "I went so hard on COVID. I sprayed the Pringle's cans that I bought at the grocery store. I stripped my clothes off because I thought COVID would be on my clothes. Like, I did it all. I watched Tiger King. I got to the end of Spotify. We all did it, right?"

"No, we didn't all do it," responded a serious Maher.

"Well, here's the thing: a lot of us did do it," the former New York Times editor continued. "And then we were told, 'You get the vaccine. You get the vaccine and you go back to normal.' And we haven't gotten back to normal."

Comment: Good for Weiss, but how many of the liberal-leaning - or of any leaning - have yet to open their eyes about the tyrannical nature of mandates and the madness of group-think?!?

Below is YouTuber Liberal Hivemind's very good analysis of Weiss's very reasonable rant:


The Stryker Corporation and the Arcus Foundation: Billionaires behind the new 'LGBT' movement

Billionaire 'philanthropists' have been driving the change from LGB to LBGT. The Stryker Corporation and their Arcus Foundation is just one example.

Not long ago, the gay rights movement was a small group of people struggling to follow their dispositions within a larger heterosexual culture. Gays and lesbians were underdogs, vastly outnumbered and loosely organized, sometimes subject to discrimination and abuse. Their story was tragic, their suffering dramatized by AIDS and Rock Hudson, Brokeback Mountain and Matthew Shepard.

Today's movement, however, looks nothing like that band of persecuted outcasts. The LGBT rights agenda — note the addition of "T" — has become a powerful, aggressive force in American society. Its advocates stand at the top of media, academia, the professions, and, most important, Big Business and Big Philanthropy. Consider the following case.

'Grandfather' has become a 'problematic' word

Language has become the main terrain on which the culture wars sweeping the Western world are played out.

Arguably, just about every word and phrase can become an unexpected target of linguistic policing. Who would have imagined that it would no longer be acceptable to use words like "grandfather," "spirit animal," "brown bags," "cakewalk," "jerry-rigged," "Sherpa," "mantra," "totem pole," or "housekeeping"? These are just some of the entries on a long list of problematic words and phrases contained in the Inclusive Language Guide published by the University of Washington.

Any sensible person reading this guide will be struck by its surreal tone. The reader learns that it is imperative to stop using phrases like "raining cats and dogs." The authors of the guide are obsessively driven in their attempt to justify why reasonable and hitherto uncontroversial words must no longer be used. For example, it justifies the need to abolish the word "housekeeping" on the grounds that "in reference to office work, this language can feel gendered."

Comment: The preening woke attempting to dictate to the world how one is permitted to speak woud be hilarious, if it weren't so horrifying.

Orwell's prescient 1984 nails it:
"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. . . . The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there's no reason or excuse for commiting thought-crime. It's merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won't be any need even for that. . . . Has it ever occcured to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?"


Long Island judge rules Gov. Hochul's mask mandate as 'unlawful'

A Long Island judge ruled against Gov. Kathy Hochul's controversial mask mandate on Monday — in a move that could lead to the lifting of similar orders in schools across the state.

Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Thomas Rademaker threw out a Nov. 24 rule issued by Health Commissioner Mary Bassett that led Hochul to order businesses without mandatory vaccination policies to require that all workers, customers and guests wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Thomas Rademaker said the rule amounted to "a law that was promulgated and enacted unlawfully by an Executive branch state agency, and therefore void and unenforceable as a matter of law."

And as a result, Rademaker said, the mask mandate Hochul announced on Dec. 10 "must fail as violative of the State Administrative Procedure Act."
