Jordan Peterson: 'Why I am no Longer a Tenured Professor at the University of Toronto'

Jordan Peterson speaks at ICC Sydney Theatre on February 26, 2019 in Sydney, Australia.
I recently resigned from my position as full tenured professor at the University of Toronto. I am now professor emeritus, and before I turned sixty. Emeritus is generally a designation reserved for superannuated faculty, albeit those who had served their term with some distinction. I had envisioned teaching and researching at the U of T, full time, until they had to haul my skeleton out of my office. I loved my job. And my students, undergraduates and graduates alike, were positively predisposed toward me. But that career path was not meant to be. There were many reasons, including the fact that I can now teach many more people and with less interference online. But here's a few more:

First, my qualified and supremely trained heterosexual white male graduate students (and I've had many others, by the way) face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions, despite stellar scientific dossiers. This is partly because of Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity mandates (my preferred acronym: DIE). These have been imposed universally in academia, despite the fact that university hiring committees had already done everything reasonable for all the years of my career, and then some, to ensure that no qualified "minority" candidates were ever overlooked. My students are also partly unacceptable precisely because they are my students. I am academic persona non grata, because of my unacceptable philosophical positions. And this isn't just some inconvenience. These facts rendered my job morally untenable. How can I accept prospective researchers and train them in good conscience knowing their employment prospects to be minimal?

Comment: Peterson would probably do well to look at Putin as an intellectual peer rather than a foe 'capitalizing' on his observations of what's going on in the West. As Putin says, Russians have 'been there' and seen the outcome. Putin and Peterson have more in common than what Peterson's ideological position would allow him to realize. In the light of ideologically-possessed mania about 'Russian interference in our democracy' being proven to be just that because no evidence of Russian interference or collusion in the 2016 US presidential election turned up in Robert Mueller's years-long hunt, Putin is warning the West, not 'capitalizing' on its situation.

The Last Days of The Covidian Cult

Jonestown

Jonestown/AP file
This isn't going to be pretty, folks. The downfall of a death cult rarely is. There is going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth, incoherent fanatical jabbering, mass deleting of embarrassing tweets. There's going to be a veritable tsunami of desperate rationalizing, strenuous denying, shameless blame-shifting, and other forms of ass-covering, as suddenly former Covidian Cult members make a last-minute break for the jungle before the fully-vaxxed-and-boosted "Safe and Effective Kool-Aid" servers get to them.

Yes, that's right, as I'm sure you've noticed, the official Covid narrative is finally falling apart, or is being hastily disassembled, or historically revised, right before our eyes. The "experts" and "authorities" are finally acknowledging that the "Covid deaths" and "hospitalization" statistics are artificially inflated and totally unreliable (which they have been from the very beginning), and they are admitting that their miracle "vaccines" don't work (unless you change the definition of the word "vaccine"), and that they have killed a few people, or maybe more than a few people, and that lockdowns were probably "a serious mistake."

I am not going to bother with further citations. You can surf the Internet as well as I can. The point is, the "Apocalyptic Pandemic" PSYOP has reached its expiration date. After almost two years of mass hysteria over a virus that causes mild-to-moderate common-cold or flu-like symptoms (or absolutely no symptoms whatsoever) in about 95% of the infected and the overall infection fatality rate of which is approximately 0.1% to 0.5%, people's nerves are shot. We are all exhausted. Even the Covidian cultists are exhausted. And they are starting to abandon the cult en masse.

It was always mostly just a matter of time. As Klaus Schwab said, "the pandemic represent[ed] a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world."

Objective:Health - The Pandemic Charade is Making Kids Dumber

O:H header
A number of studies have come out recently showing that the lockdowns and social distancing have had a negative effect on children's cognitive development. This is hardly surprising, as an absence of social interaction, with peers and adults, lack of in-person learning, decreased respiration from masks, a lack of facial visual cues due to masks, not to mention constant fear and the instilling of the belief that a child has the ability to accidentally kill grandma - all these self-evidently will have a negative affect on children's neuro development. (This isn't even to get into the lack of exercise, which is directly related to cognitive function).

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we discuss how lockdowns and social distancing are making children (and adults, no doubt) dumber, and all it's wider implications.

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

Fauci vaccines newsreal
© Sott.net
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...

SARS-CoV-2 is a Real Virus And it HAS Been Isolated on Numerous Occasions

covid lie protest

...sort of
While some still claim SARS-CoV-2 doesn't actually exist, this seems to fly in the face of several well-established facts. The virus has actually been photomicrographed,1,2 whole-genome sequences of the various strains are available,3,4 and with the appropriate credentials anyone can obtain the live virus to conduct research.

While I am absolutely no fan of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, they do grow the virus in cell culture to ensure widespread availability for researchers who want to study it.5 Examples of research where you need the actual virus include antiviral research, vaccine development, virus stability research and pathogenesis research.6

What's the Confusion?

At least part of the confusion appears to be rooted in how the term "isolated" is defined. Some insist a virus is not isolated unless it's also purified, while others say a virus doesn't have to be purified in order to be "isolated."

Spanish Secret Service Behind 2017 Barcelona Terror Attacks, Wanted to Derail Catalonia Independence Referendum, Says Former Police Commissioner


Comment: As we commented at the time:
Van Mows Down People on Barcelona's Ramblas: 13 confirmed dead, dozens injured

Coming just a few weeks before Catalonia's referendum, this event will surely be used by Spanish authorities to argue for a 'No' vote. After all, if this kind of attack can happen in the heart of Catalonia, surely Catalonians are safer, and therefore better off, in the bosom of the Spanish state.

Villarejo

Former Spanish police commissioner Jose Manuel Villarejo said the 2017 terror attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils were orchestrated by Spain's secret service
A FORMER senior officer in Spain's National Police Corps has said the 2017 terror attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils were organised by the country's secret service in a bid to destabilise Catalonia before the independence referendum there.

However, Jose Manuel Villarejo said the attacks in August that year - which included a truck running over pedestrians on La Rambla in Barcelona - "were a serious mistake" on the part of former National Intelligence Service (CNI) director Felix Sanz Roldan.

Ahead of the October 2017 indyref, the former commissioner said the CNI boss "wanted to give Catalonia a fright, but miscalculated the consequences".

The "COVID Chronicles" movie1 gives a concise look at the pandemic, answering some of the questions that have left many people scratching their heads, because the reality and science don't seem to match up with what the media is reporting.

Ivor Cummins is a biochemical engineer with a background in medical device engineering and leading teams in complex problem-solving. On his website, TheFatEmperor.com,2 he offers guidance on how to decode science to transform your health. He produced "COVID Chronicles" along with Donal O'Neill, a documentary filmmaker in the field of health and human performance.

There were red flags in the pandemic from the start. Because the symptoms of COVID-19 overlap with so many other diseases, the only way to know you have it is to test for it.



The filmmakers of Covid Chronicles are allowing for a FREE special stream until 1/10.

Project Veritas Releases Military Documents That Contradict Fauci's Sworn Testimony on Gain-of-Function Research

anthony fauci rand paul
Project Veritas released documents Monday night which appear to contradict NIH Director Dr. Anthony Fauci's sworn testimony regarding gain of function research.


The documents come from a report at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which were allegedly hidden in a top secret shared drive.

DARPA facilitates research in technology with potential military applications under the US Department of Defense.

Comment: This could be the death knell for puppy-torture expert Anthony Fauci. We live in hope.

However, note also that this is probably part of ongoing 'information management' to cut loose (and eventually dump blame onto) Fauci and the civilian agencies by the military (and deeper) network by the 'higher-ups'. They always have one eye on 'the next phase' in controlling populations, and 'the pandemic' isn't going to last forever as the means by which to do so.

As explained by Joe and Niall in their latest NewsReal, the economic consequences of shuttering the world economy for long spells over the last two years has caused major shortages in labor and goods/services, shortages that the Powers That Be now look forward to 'managing' on our behalf. Until the situation runs away from them and they no longer can...


UPDATE: The above tweet by Eric Spracklen of Project Veritas is not available because he's had his Twitter account suspended.

Objective:Health - Mass Formation Psychosis

O:H header
Mass Formation Psychosis has been allover social media of late, after it was explained by Dr. Robert Malone on his widely censored interview with Joe Rogan. It's made such a splash that the control system has gone into high gear trying to "debunk" the idea (see articles on Reuters and AP, for example); never mind that the "debunking" consists of "we talked to 3 'experts' and they say it doesn't exist".

But regular viewers of Objective:Health know that we've been talking about this phenomenon, although not under this current name, for the past 7 years. It's not new and not unique to the 'pandemic'. The mass control of the thought patterns of the population has a long history, although the science of mass hypnosis has become more exacting and refined.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look into the trance state the world is currently under, the means by which its achieved and maintained, and whether or not it's possible to break out of it.
