Systemic Racism A Coverup For Systemic Plutocracy

October 15, 2020

All these hysterical BLM sympathizers are, civilizationally speaking, a laughing stock. Of course, there is systemic racism. Of course, it’s a problem. Of course it’s not the main problem. The main problem is the class war of the plutocracy and its obsequious servants against the rest of society, not to say the entire biosphere. 

Hysterical BLMs bark up the wrong tree… And so doing let the plutocracy free to augment its mind control. Obsessive BLMs were conditioned to concentrate on calling everybody a racist, as if it were the original sin of today’s society. It was the original sin four centuries ago, in 1619 CE… And even then, it is colonial authorities motivated by profits from tobacco plantations, who pushed for slavery. 

He coming behind you, but bullets he coming from front through door, consecutive shooting at police. Who plays with guns die with guns? Maybe not. But add to this playing with drug money, and boyfriending drug dealers… Brianna Taylor also posed with an AR5, a sort of small machine gun, tried to sell one to a “white boy”, etc… Not exactly pure as the driven snow… Notice the copyright from Louisville Police… Lower left…

By focusing on the wrong fundamental cause, deranged activists act like the puppets of the plutocracy they turn out to be… so far. 

Plutocratic media are trying to make us believe that police act erroneously the way it does because of “systemic racism”. Sure, but just a little bit. The  (only two of George Floyd’s assassinating officers were “white”, and the chief of police there is black… and had sued his own department for racism, and won, years ago). 

The legal, judicial and political systems are much more involved, and so is public opinion, full of NIMBY, setting up an unjust society without enough cheap housing and rewarding legal jobs. I see it very clearly in my local city of Berkeley, with the “Black Lives Matter” signs on the lawns of multimillion dollar houses. Propose to build cheap housing like the high rise in which I live, and the multimillionaires want to jail you. So they build none, and let the tents of the homeless fester in cheap parts of the city. 

You will never see a tent anywhere close to the multimillion dollars homes where the “Democrat”, Trump hating Puritans live.

People who had real trouble with the system, including the police, or real fascist racists, in the US or elsewhere, know better… They know, for example, that, in the USA, the police start from the principle that suspects are armed and extremely dangerous. So the police are always ready to use lethal force, and that’s intrinsic abuse… But it’s not really the fault of the police. It’s the fault of the multimillion dollar homes crowd which is the heart and soul of the so-called “Democratic” Party.

Nor is it “systemic racism” which is the main driver, of the violence of the system, by a very long shot. Once again, check the Berkeley Hills: not one single homeless there: the number of homeless is inversely proportional to the number of “BLM” signs. I walk there all the time, and they look at me weird. I say all this more lightly, as it happened to me, systemic racism… Several times, in the most violent circumstances… But I could see the real driver was the violence of the system, plutocratic in nature, rather than the systemic racism…

This is why the “Democratic” Party selected as candidate for president the ultimate insider of the violence of the system… after persuading Sanders not to demolish Biden as the War Criminal, Mass Incarceration Engineer, and Credit Card companies chill, from the top world tax haven… he is…

Your Money And Your Life? Is Obamacare Constitutional?

October 13, 2020

Obamacare is officially the “Affordable Care Act” (ACA). ACA’s basic mechanism is to use public funds, to pay for private insurance contracted with private, FOR-PROFIT companies… ACA is a transfer of public funds from care to greed. From taxes to plutocrats exploiting health.

The Obama administration had already done this with its TARP program. I called TARP scathingly Transferring Assets to Rich People

Obamacare in particular, and Obama in general, kill: look at the dates carefully… No wonder it was necessary for health care plutocrats to make people obsess about Trump… To distract from this sort of graphs… Obamacare killed, because it made healthcare more expensive and less accessible for 85% of the population… And it didn’t change much of anything for the lower 15%… By the way I am NOT saying that all the pieces of Obamacare are bad. Of course not, there are lots of very good parts in Obamacare. I invented the expression “Medicare For All”… and MFA is what all other advanced countries basically have…

Now, transferring public funds to private companies can be legal and constitutional under emergency circumstances: when the private economy is collapsing, through no reason of its own making, the government should intervene. This is the whole idea of COVID stimulus. 

However the public to private transfer of funds of ACA was meant as a definitive solution, a chronic transfer of public funds to private companies. 

The Obama administration practice of sending public funds to the world’s wealthiest persons explains why inequality became the highest under Obama-Biden. Obama loved to express his admiration for Reagan. However, he was less of a socialist than even Reagan. When 3,000 banks failed under Reagan-Bush, Reagan nationalized them (and then helped them). Using public funds on public property is constitutional. Doing what Obama-Biden did to give public funds to private, for profit enterprises is not constitutional. But it no doubt explains why, within three years of their “public” service, Obama and Biden could afford between themselves five giant mansions.

Trump’s Order On Reducing US Drug Prices

October 12, 2020

DRUG PRICES MATTER

Leaders of the so-called “Democratic Party” have plotted for decades to increase the profits of their friends in the US healthcare plutocracy. One thing they certainly could have done was to reduce the prices of drugs in the USA. Obama had a “super majority” for his first two years: he could have passed any law he wanted. He could have started with executive orders, and shamed Congress into transforming them into law. Anyway, for the record and history, it is Donald Trump who passed the Executive Order on lowering drug prices. So, when “Democrats” howler that Trump is Satan, they mean that the greed of the US Big Pharma is god. Here is the White House’s order:

***

EXECUTIVE ORDER ON LOWERING DRUG PRICES BY PUTTING AMERICA FIRST

Issued on: September 13, 2020

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. Americans pay more per capita for prescription drugs than residents of any other developed country in the world. It is unacceptable that Americans pay more for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same places. Other countries’ governments regulate drug prices by negotiating with drug manufacturers to secure bargain prices… The Council of Economic Advisers has found that Americans finance much of the biopharmaceutical innovation that the world depends on, allowing foreign governments, many of which are the sole healthcare payers in their respective countries, to enjoy bargain prices for such innovations. Americans should not bear extra burdens to compensate for the shortfalls that result from the nationalized public healthcare systems of wealthy countries abroad.

In addition to being unfair, high drug prices in the United States also have serious economic and health consequences for patients in need of treatment. High prices cause Americans to divert too much of their scarce resources to pharmaceutical treatments and away from other productive uses. High prices are also a reason many patients skip doses of their medications, take less than the recommended doses, or abandon treatment altogether. The consequences of these behaviors can be severe. For example, patients may develop acute conditions that result in poor clinical outcomes or that require drastic and expensive medical interventions.

The corruptocrats at the helm of the Democratic Party (I am a Democrat, BTW, no “”, around me being a Democrat)… insist that naming a judge will destroy healthcare. But they did nothing about medication prices, even when they were in total command of the USA, and especially when… “Obamacare” was about transferring public money to the world wealthiest healthcare plutocrats, not about lowering prices for the average US citizen. Trump’s executive order does this.

Here is more of Trump’s Executive order on Lowering Drug Prices:

In most markets, the largest buyers pay the lowest prices, but this has not been true for prescription drugs. The Federal Government is the largest payer for prescription drugs in the world, but it pays more than many smaller buyers, including other developed nations. When the Federal Government purchases a drug covered by Medicare — the cost of which is shared by American seniors who take the drug and American taxpayers — it should insist on, at a minimum, the lowest price at which the manufacturer sells that drug to any other developed nation.

Sec. 2. Policy. (a) It is the policy of the United States that the Medicare program should not pay more for costly Part B or Part D prescription drugs or biological products than the most-favored-nation price.

(b) The “most-favored-nation price” shall mean the lowest price, after adjusting for volume and differences in national gross domestic product, for a pharmaceutical product that the drug manufacturer sells in a member country of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

Sec. 3. Payment Model on the Most-Favored-Nation Price in Medicare Part B…the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall immediately take appropriate steps to implement his rulemaking plan… pursuant to which Medicare would pay, for certain high-cost prescription drugs and biological products covered by Medicare Part B, no more than the most-favored-nation price

Sec. 4. Payment Model on the Most-Favored-Nation Price in Medicare Part D…the Secretary shall take appropriate steps to develop and implement a rulemaking plan… pursuant to which Medicare would pay, for Part D prescription drugs or biological products where insufficient competition exists and seniors are faced with prices above those in OECD member countries that have a comparable per-capita gross domestic product to the United States… no more than the most-favored-nation price

***

So please remember when you go vote: Trump is Satan, he wants cheap medicine for you, while his enemy Big Pharma is God, and the “Democratic” Party is Big Pharma’s prophet! If you doubt that Big Pharma and Big Greed is god, just check out the five extraordinarily expensive mansions Obama and Biden live in… Big Pharma and its investors has rewarded them well…

Is it Criminal To Elect War Criminals? Is Deindustrialization Criminal?

October 11, 2020

IRAQI LIVES DON’T MATTER, FRACKING IS ALL WHAT MATTERS?

Were the Germans who voted for Hitler culprit? Official Common Wisdom says no, but it is manufactured by the powers that be. I say yes, the Germans were culprit. They were inhabited by systematically racist and vicious moods, in the average. Moreover, they strived not to know any better. However, when they voted for Hitler, the Nazis had not yet committed any crimes against humanity yet. The Nazis had not yet killed three millions in Iraq (and never would).

Only a careful examination of Germany in 1932, could perhaps have shown systemic crimes committed by the Nazis, but that was not obvious as the Nazis accused others of mayhem, and the media had been captured by fascism already. Also, the ideology of the Nazis rested on lies, and many of these lies were shared by the German people, and not just the German people, but also many Anglo-Saxon trouble makers … for example, the outrage at the Versailles Treaty… which in truth was mostly a treaty of liberation of land occupied by imperial Germany under a systematically racist system… was systematically promoted by Anglo-Saxon plutocrats and their serving intelligentsia… to this day (2020 CE).  

After the Second World War, the US plutocracy reinstalled the German plutocracy which had put Hitler in power, back in power As Soon As Possible. The official idea presented to the public was general forgiveness for Germany and putting Germany back on its feet ASAP. The real truth was quite different.

The deepest reason to put prominent Nazis, such as Marshall Von Manstein, author of the attack on France, back in power, had its own sinister, and most significant dimension: US plutocracy had put Hitler in power… In the sense that US plutocracy, and this is not in books, nor taught in historically Nazi friendly universities such as Harvard, was the most important factor in putting Hitler in power. The early Nazi Party was completely financed by US plutocrats. Later, in the decade 1923-1933, the American plutocratic and banking connection was also the most important factor in putting Hitler in power (consider Schacht’s connections and role). That is the dimension of Nazism which, unsurprisingly, is neither taught nor revealed… because, if it were understood, and if its subsequent coverup were understood, would have dramatic consequences in the understanding of contemporary society. Understanding the deepest roots of Nazism would show the West has been run as a stealth plutocracy for much longer than is generally suspected, and the world wars were a consequence. Most would find this so upsetting they will prefer to ignore the notion.

What would Caesar think? It may depend whether he would be asked before his assassination, or after

To put it in one nutshell, Nazism was a trick which could only increase the power of the US Deep State, and its entangled plutocracy. The pro-Nazi policy of the US Deep State and its plutocracy was a direct continuation from the pro-racist German policy of Democratic US President Woodrow Wilson, the most racist president the USA ever had. Disconcertingly, but ultimately fortunately, for the US Deep State, Nazism had functioned even better than intended, destroying Europe in general and Russia, Britain and France in particular, clearing the way for the glorious American century.  

So a myth was invented: the Germans were not culprit of Nazism, they were innocent, because they just didn’t know.  In other words, go kill millions in Vietnam or Iraq, you are innocent because you didn’t know. In truth, they didn’t know because they didn’t want to know. Except some, like Muhammad Ali knew, and fought a war against the war, at great risk and discomfort to themselves. 

Systems of thought are enslaved to systems of moods. First they love, or hate, or systematically ignore, then they think. Julius Caesar, in Bellum Gallicum, put it ironically:  

Men freely believe that which they desire.” — 

Thus if one is searching for the root of a collective behavior, one has to search for the moods lurking in its roots. In the case of Germany the mood in 1919 was deeply ingrained in the preceding two centuries and one finds it written down in Keynes’ work (yes the British leader of the Versailles negotiations in 1919): Slavs, in particular Poles were so inferior to Germans, wrote Keynes, that they would mismanage the economy, should they become free of German administration… in Poland. Systemic racism was taken for granted.

Is It Criminal To Offshore Crucial Industry To China?

The question now is what do we find written down which sustains an outrage just as great as the support of US plutocracy for Hitler? It is simple, it is written and shown all over the plutocratic media: the most striking fact, as the pandemic started, was the incapacity of many ex-industrial countries, including France and the USA, to supply enough basic protection equipment for their own populations (unsurprisingly the West’s most industrialized country, Germany, led by a physicist, did the best in fighting the epidemic; Germany, thanks to its industrial basis, has been able to test and track intelligently). 

As late as September 2020, jumbo jets carrying masks landed in France, coming from China and watched over by the armed military as if they were carrying diamonds.  

The striking deindustrialization of most of the West, is a most significant fact: how can people be free if they do not build the most basic things they need? The likes of Paul Krugman have said: do not worry, free trade, new trade theory: we carry nothing but a smile, they will provide us with everything. 

In truth what the West is providing China with is plutocracy. That sounds absurd, but it happened before. When the Roman State collapsed it could have mustered enormous forces and stopped the collapse. But it didn’t want to, because the mood called Christianity had seized the land, and turning the other cheek, to get another slap, was thought superior to forging swords, and training We The People to fight. The Barbarians invading the empire had, altogether at most a couple hundred thousands fighting men over 40 years… and probably much less. The Roman empire could have raised an army of ten millions…

What was going on? Why was that irresistible Roman army not raised, to save civilization? Simple: the last thing the Roman plutocracy wanted was a revolution from We The People. Barbarian invasion was felt to be a lesser evil, as far as the ruling plutocracy was concerned. We know this because the Roman elite intermarried with barbarians early on: the half Vandal Stilicho was regent of the Roman empire by 395 CE, the year when the invasions into the Roman empire became so uncontrolled, that barbarians invaded Italy. 

One of my friend, who had, or has, a US Defense contract, and works for one of the GAFA, commutes to China all the time: he set up his company there, making the same sort of electronics he was under contract with the CIA and the like to furnish. I have interesting friends.

I was talking to a friend of mine who is a big time tenured professor in a famous US university. He works in the sort of field crucial for the Twenty-First century: foundations of robotics from neurology. His rage against Trump is colossal: Trump caused the deaths in the epidemic by dismantling the unit! Trump destroyed the EPA! Trump talks to people in a demeaning way! Trump thinks he is a genius! And it’s not true! He saw it all himself! Trump is the worst, because he captured Patrice Ayme!

Well, yes, what about the money you, my big time university tenured professor friend, get from China? Would it not be better to get it from the USA? This is not a rare case. The head of the Chemistry department in Harvard was arrested for getting secret money from China (although he was also funded by the US government). 

I have seen a university professor, another one, also a friend, from the most prestigious public university in the world, make a business model of the strangest sort. He set up a company exporting to China the result of the scientific research of said university, in exchange for start-up funding. When an in house lawyer called the attention of the CEO that this seemed unlawful, the legal division was summarily closed. The Chinese keep on providing him with dozens of millions: they have set up a mirror company in China which is industrially producing the robots my big time university tenured professor friend driving a Porsche, supplies the know-how for.

When Trump tried to restrict this sort of activity, he was called a racist, and Biden declared he would revert Trump’s decisions. 

The details are arcane to me at this point. However one thing is sure: the deindustrialization of the West has to be stopped, and reversed. Deindustrialization the West hurts everybody: the West, the poor, the ecology, the planet, and even China. Why does Western deindustrialization hurt the planet? Because the solutions out of the unprecedented ecological crisis we suffer, and the biosphere suffers, are scientific and technological, they are not just political and behavioral. Why does Western deindustrialization hurt China? Because China knows the preceding, and wants to forge ahead in its capacity to muster nature, as it has done for 5,000 years. Western know-how has helped China for 5,000 years, and China knows that should be a technological conversation which can only help.

Iraqi Lives Don’t Matter, oil is all what matters?

A question that will be asked to many people for a very long time is this: what were you thinking, what were you feeling when you voted for someone who conspired to kill millions in Iraq, so that Wall Street could invest in fracking? Were you saying, to yourself or others: Iraqi Lives Don’t Matter, oil is all what matters? What were you saying to yourself? That you were just like all those who stood by when the Native Americans got slaughtered? And that you didn’t care?

Of course, you were not like them! You were not like those who stood by as the Native Americans got slaughtered. When the Native Americans got slaughtered, from the deliberate policy of their government, most US citizens were not voting, or not informed, and were not consulted. But in 2020, their descendants were consulted: do you approve enough of the conspiracy to destroy Iraq to elect one of its chief conspirators? If you voted yes, what does that say about you?

RAGE: WHY HYPER WEALTH And ITS MEDIA HATE TRUMP… And Love Biden [Book, part 1]

October 10, 2020

BAD LIES MATTER:

“Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”

― Homer, The Iliad.

Genuine human progress can only be founded on the truth, logic and moods articulated on the most significant facts. All of this requires deep honesty, necessary to debate the truth, and learning from one’s errors, and those of others (which are more numerous). To achieve supreme capability for understanding, one has to be in one piece, mentally, a whole, that is, having integrity, and authenticity, namely being the author of one’s own being.

If one wants genuine progress, bad lies matter: left unexamined, they teach nothing but bad habits and grievous errors. 

Genuine human progress happens best and fastest when all human minds are given an equal chance to contribute to debates fostering new and better ideas. Thus, genuine democracy, demos-kratia, people-power, optimizes progress. We do not have genuine democracy now. So our progress has been faltering. A bad place to be, as the fate of the biosphere is in our hands. All indications are that we are bringing quasi instantaneously the Earth to Jurassic-like conditions. The only way to avoid this thermal and acidic catastrophe is through more advanced technology than we have today. So spurring scientific innovation should be primordial to all those who want to progress in the direction minimizing suffering.

Hundreds of civilizations have bloomed and collapsed. Throughout all civilizations, power in a few hands has brought ever more power in these few hands: power exponentiates. Invariably when few rule, oligos-arkhia, catastrophe followed. If we want our world civilization to survive, and us with it, we have to restrain the oligarchy. 

Universal taxation on wealth can prevent the rise of hyper wealth; this is actually the fundamental reason for taxation. The City-State of Rome succeeded to put an absolute limit on the wealth and power of families, for six centuries. Then it failed to do so: globalism and offshorism had enabled part of the Roman elite to avoid Roman legislation, and to grow immensely in power, just as Twenty-First globalism has enabled part of the elite to avoid Western legislation.

Rome became the toy of its wealthy elites. Yet, some individuals, among the wealthiest, and most prestigious, disagreed with the most privileged, and tried to return the Republic to We The People. The most famous of these heroes who dared to confront the global plutocracy were the Gracchi, Marius, Sulla, and Caesar. Ferocious civil wars ensued. The Republic collapsed. Ultimately the selfish plutocratic families who had captured the Republic were themselves annihilated, but only by methods which made a return to Democracy impossible. Too many people had died. 

We are in a similar situation. A small elite of a few thousand families, mostly spawned from the US Deep State, has seized control of world media and universities, and thus the global mind. Two thousands of them are present billionaires, but this galaxy of wealth extends much further: heirs of the once hyper powerful are found throughout the leadership system, often as officers of nonprofits, foundations, think tanks (it’s not just Prince Harry and his spouse, a Hollywood star). 

The rise of this Deep Global State started a long time ago, in reaction to US President Teddy Roosevelt’s crack down on monopolies. Roosevelt broke the monopolies, but that was like dispersing vermin. Quickly, the US Deep State and its entangled plutocracy learned to use many tax avoidance tricks, and dictatorships all over, and not just in Banana Republics. Fascist Germany was used to boost the power of the US plutocratic establishment during 1914.1917 and even more in the 1920s and 1930s.

Recently the debility and lethality of the deal the US plutocratic class made with the Chinese dictatorship became blatant, and led to the election of Donald Trump, who had condemned this sort of offshorization of jobs, power, income and dreams, since the 1980s when he opposed Ronald Reagan, and his “Democratic” accomplices. The deal with the Chinese dictatorship was similar to the one the US plutocracy and its Deep State made with Adolf Hitler and his followers as early as 1922 (when Hitler was reviled in Germany). 

Surprised by the defeat of their well-paid pawn Clinton, the global plutocrats have cultivated hatred against Trump as their main tool to regain control.This is a dangerous precedent: the same method was used against the Gracchi, with terrible consequences.

A small elite controls the world, leveraged by the Deep Global State, and its enforcer is Joe Biden. His stunning record is clear…much of it grotesquely anti-progressive, including deep friendship for top racists… But how much Biden has been part of the Washington plutocratic swamp has been buried by plutocratic media. 

Similarly, on major objective criterions: life expectancy, inequality (Gini Index), and fracking (the US made into the world largest fossil fuel producer), the Obama-Biden administration was a dismal failure, achieving the opposite of the values it proclaimed. This lack of authenticity and integrity was completely ignored or denied by the plutocratic media, which pushed the cynicism far enough to attribute these horrors to Obama’s successor. The worst part is that this subterfuge was swallowed, hook, line and sink by intellectuals.

That the world intelligentsia fell for Biden reveals that intellectuals have given up on their critical role, embracing instead the one of happily barking watchdogs for the hyper wealthy elite which owns them. Such rotting by the head was seen before, most notably under the Roman empire, and various Chinese dynasties. It is an indication of a later stage of the global plutocratic takeover. Intellectual decay always precedes collapse, as there are simply not enough ethical and authentic brains left among the leadership to master the otherwise incomprehensible situation and its possible solutions.

***

BIDEN IN A FEW WORDS: 

“Democrat” Senator Joe Biden was one of the top instigators of the invasion of Iraq, second only to G. W. Bush in importance. Biden chaired the Senate Commission during 2002 which provided president Bush with the reasons to invade Iraq. The Guardian detailed Biden’s role in selecting biased, pro-war witnesses for his all-important commission (details will be found further on). 

The consequences of the enormous and murderous Iraq lie have been far-reaching. Not just fracking, but inuring the US population and in particular its intelligentsia to lying, on a massive emotional and factual scale. That accoutumance to media mediated lying has blocked most of the “populist”reforms necessary, presenting them instead as deranged (Whether they came from Sanders or Trump)…   

The ideology of Joe Biden is that of the Davos plutocracy, a global hydra gorged on offshoring jobs where US and Western law doesn’t reach: anything goes, as long as it leads to increasing power for an elite of a few thousand families, many originating from the Nineteenth Century USA. The way towards this takeover by wealth and greed is crooked finance, tech monopolies, nihilistic teachings, and brainwashing the entire world population with most of the world’s media, which the Davos plutocracy has captured. 

Biden was also Senator, for decades, of the state which is, worldwide, the ultimate tax haven, Delaware. What could go wrong, from a progressive point of view?

To entice us progressives, Biden and his supporters make a lot of good points, nice little points to dream of, shiny dynamics, always moving according to what the latest polls say. Obama made many of the same points, with his mouth, to the opposite effect, in the resulting acts. I have been trying to figure out many points of Biden’s program: they keep shifting… Many contradict each other. Many policies are not to be revealed before the election… to avoid “headlines”, Biden himself, said several times.

The invasion of Iraq, a war of aggression, which killed millions, was a crime against humanity. Biden built the rationale for it, and it was a lie. The fact that the Editorial Board of the New York Times in his endorsement “Elect Joe Biden, America didn’t use the word “Iraq” once, is a testimony to a bias so deep, that it is discombobulating. What else did the Editorial Board forget to mention about Joe Biden which is most significant? That Biden authored in 1994 the systematically racist crime bill which brought mass incarceration thanks to this ”New Jim Crow”? That Biden’s mentors in the Senate, or not, had achieved high rank in the Ku Klux Klan

Under Obama, manufacturing rolled over, life expectancy went down (for the longest and deepest in time of peace), and inequality reached a higher level than ever before, while fracking soared. These are very significant facts. The Editorial Board of the New York Times says it will not happen again. Maybe that’s as naïve as when I spent two years of my life working hard to get president Obama elected, just to see the unfortunate developments I mentioned, unfold. 

Biden says he will augment taxes. The elected “Democrats” say that this will control the wealthy. But they are lying. They know very well that augmenting the taxes on the middle class or even the 1%, is not how the hyper wealthy and hyper powerful are controlled… Because, like Biden and his S corporation trick, the wealthiest use loopholes to avoid taxes altogether… At the worst for them, the wealthiest turn taxation into negotiation.

***

UNDER THE COVER OF ITS OPPOSITE, THE BIDEN PLAN IS FRIENDLY TO HYPER WEALTH:

I have long advocated for a lot of what is in Biden’s program: free public universities, more funds for scientific research, a green economy, infrastructure spending, Medicare For All (I invented the term) and so on. Biden says he will do much of this by just augmenting the marginal tax rate on the wealthiest… by a tiny percentage. This is mathematically impossible… and a cover-up.

Indeed, Biden says nothing about cracking down on the fiscal loopholes for the hyper wealthy…the only “loophole” he wants to close is “step-up basis”. That’s a middle class tax, not a wealth tax. The abolition of step-up basis on inheritance has been a disaster in France: it deprived non-wealthy heirs of much, sometimes most, of their inheritance. But the absence of a “step-up” basis does not hurt the hyper wealthy in France: they have plenty of special loopholes, just for them, passed by friendly legislators who were anxious to please them: pigeons are friendly to whomever gives them crumbs. Abolishing “Step-up basis” targets middle class inheritance, not the immense wealth, influence and power of “Foundations” and “Nonprofits”, let alone the anonymous financial entities which make the fortune of Delaware… And of Biden’s donors and sponsors.  

The US Deep State is the original inventor of loopholes for the hyper wealthy. Loopholes, such as the Foundation law, were made into law the same morning as the income tax law. Yes, the same morning. “Foundations” enable heirs to control huge wealth, and power, tax free. It’s neo-feudalism. 

The propaganda trick known as the “Living Pledge”, launched by plutocratic propagandists, shamelessly builds on the Foundation myth: give half of your fortune to a Foundation controlled by your significant others in the thereafter…and We The People will be eternally grateful to live in a world controlled and managed by your precious heirs… 

The origination of feudalism a thousand years years ago followed the exact same pattern: we, the wealthy and powerful do this, taking over the world, for you, as a public service. In exchange, the hyper wealthy should go tax-free, and all of this should be made inheritable… Exactly what as the Foundations and Nonprofits go, crammed with wealthy heirs as they are… And their glorious names plastered all over public buildings (an example: the enormous and ancient San Francisco general public hospital suddenly became the “Mark Zuckenberg” hospital, although the plutocrat had given only a tiny amount of money, relative to the immense capital of said hospital). 

Fiscal loopholes and jurisdiction evasion by the offshoring of industrial investment enabled by global trade are how most of the wealthiest become wealthier. Fiscal loopholes from globalocracy made the wealthy of Ancient Rome way wealthier than was legal in Rome. As a result the Republic fell, because the hyper wealthy became so wealthy they captured the Roman Deep State.  

Worse, and even Machiavellian: Biden plans to augment US corporate taxes to 28% well above the countries the USA is in competition with. The naive progressives will congratulate him, believing in their ignorance that Biden will be punishing the rich, when all he would be truly doing is to provide them with a fig leaf… The consequence of a higher corporate tax would be the exact opposite of what they expect. This is so true, that quasi-socialist France is presently targeting a lowering of its corporate tax rate down to 25%. Rising the US corporate tax at 28% will give an excuse for corporations to offshore themselves (that’s the Machaivellian trick of Biden and company, providing an excuse to offshore themselves again). That will weaken We The People… the crucial effect the Global Deep Plutocracy wants most to achieve. 

To boot, the 28% rate will bring down the US financial markets, hence 401k retirement plans, down (the solution for investors will be to invest overseas). That may sound innocuous enough, but, by lowering assets of average citizens, their power goes down, thus the powers of those who can use globalism, the wealthiest of the wealthy, augments relatively even more.

***  

THE BIDEN TAX PLAN EXHIBITS ITS HYPOCRISY BY DISMISSING A CARBON TAX: 

The main US business association, the US Chamber of Commerce, now approves a carbon tax: so the “Democratic” candidate prones the exact opposite of progressively leading on the green economy. Biden talks the talk, yet walks the other way, another example of his deep inauthenticity. 

A carbon tax basically makes CO2 emissions less cheap… Right now CO2 emissions are subsidized, often directly. CO2 emissions are also subsidized because emitters do not have to pay for the consequences of their emissions. Conservatively, the World Health Organization evaluates the number of deaths caused by fossil fuels at around ten millions a year. 

Any country seriously adhering to the Paris Accord and unwilling to go through the sort of creative destruction Trump has promoted, from fewer subsidies, has to impose a carbon tax to reduce emissions. What?… wait: how does Trump’s creative destruction help the environment? Simple: by providing fewer governmental subsidies, coal plants have been closing at a faster rate under Trump than any time previously (including Obama-Biden). Biden’s expressed will to harness change by providing 40% to disadvantaged areas will act as a mighty brake to the modernization, and decarbonization of the economy.

By the way, the noise makers of the “Green New Deal” exhibit their own hypocrisy, or painful ignorance, by saying nothing about the dismissal of the carbon tax by their candidate Joe Biden during the electoral process. Considering the brakes Biden will put to development, with his weird 40% diktat, a carbon tax is a must. Once Biden is elected that way, by pledging no carbon tax, it will be too late to backtrack, because Biden and his wealthy sponsors will argue that not having a carbon tax was an engagement of his with the people who voted for him. Instead of letting the free market work against carbon, Biden will distribute crumbs to his friends.

So the firebrand known as AOC, Alexandra Ocasio Cortez, should wake up, there is still time. A question naturally arises: why would Biden be hostile to a carbon tax. The answer is the type of sponsors on Wall Street which the Obama-Biden administration had: they financed fracking, the raison d’etre of the Iraq invasion. Those financial types have milked fossil fuels very profitably, and would love to have the party last a few more years. A carbon tax would kill fossil fuels quickly. This is also why they killed hydrogen, on day one of the Obama-Biden administration (Trump has reinstituted hydrogen research). Green hydrogen and its derivatives (ammonia, etc.) has the potential to completely replace fossil fuels..

Biden has told Wall Street that his Energy Secretary would be Mr. Tom Steyer, a multibillionaire, who claims to be an ecologist. Mr. Steyer became a billionaire through coal… and also Goldman Sachs, private prisons and offshoring jobs. Brandishing Mr. Steyer as a potential cabinet member should seduce the worst of Wall Street, because it demonstrates, for all to see, that the hypocrisy on the part of Biden is colossal, and the lie immense: nothing like an insolent liar at the head of the world, as far as the financial plutocracy is concerned. And even better: Biden’s own voters will become part of the lie, and get compromised!

That Biden can arrogantly choose such a man as Mr. Steyer, the exact sort of financiers all progressives should despise and fear, shows that Biden is the sort of soldier global plutocrats trust. Nor is Mr. Steyer unique, as an excellent and natural choice for Mr. Biden. 

Another name floated by Biden to Wall Street is Ms. Meg Whitman, also a multibillionaire, from EBay, and a poster girl from the tech monopolies and their secretive financial arms, and monopolistic plots… including Goldman Sachs (on the board of which she served, before it was revealed she used Goldman Sachs for “spinning”). Proposing Ms. Meg Whitman as Commerce Secretary, is indeed very reassuring for the financial plutocracy: it shows Biden is not afraid to scandalously let the owners of the world rule, for all to see… Besides, it accustoms the Biden voters to vote for Wall Street.

What could go wrong for progressives?… once they have persuaded themselves that the world should be ruled by crooked finance, their spirits have been fully captured, and Biden is their man!

How Many People Does The Flu Really Kill? Censors Know

October 8, 2020

Trump said that the flu killed some years more than 100,000 in the USA. The tech monopolies and some “Democratic” politicians decried this statement as “misleading and potentially harmful” and censored the US president.

Welcome to the club, Mr. President! I have been censored thousands (yes, thousands) of times by the plutocratic media (and banned entirely from many sites, and magazines)… Including some I have long been subscribed to. Recently a social media I belonged to, realizing I was in contact with around 300,000 people, yanked that connection. Another outfit implements a fatwa of an Islamic Republic concerning another of my electronic publications. Active measures are taken to limit my electronic existence. For example the Bing search engine doesn’t recognize my existence.

Actually, the monopolies are scientifically wrong about the flu. The flu kills much more than its official numbers. Because the flu kills through secondary pneumonia, and other pulmonary diseases it fosters. The flu kills indirectly by destroying the immune system in the lungs.

For US adults, pneumonia is the most common cause of hospital admissions other than women giving birth. About 1 million adults in the US seek care in a hospital due to pneumonia every year, and 50,000 die from this disease.

Overall, the Center for Disease Control estimates that 12,000 and 61,000 deaths annually since 2010 can be blamed on the flu. The higher number reflects the 2017-2018 flu season. Most years, the US death toll from the flu is closer to 34,000 to 43,000. 

Now flu can also launch Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD, when the lungs outright die in vast portions. This is increasingly the leading cause of death. Both my parents died from it.  

The discovery that influenza impacts immune defense is formally recent… Although it was long epidemiologically obvious: during the flu season, a lot of people die from acute respiratory infection, often after they caught the flu, although not necessarily while having it. How that mechanism works was elucidated recently. Basically, the flu virus acts like an HIV for the lungs. The flu virus depresses immune function in the lungs by more than 90%…

Here is a quote from NIH, 2017 (in full and in context in the appendix):

“Virally induced death of immune cells assist in the evasion of host defenses and hinders the clearance of the virus promoting the development of infection. Studies have shown a 90% reduction of alveolar macrophages in mice within a week of influenza infection, and evidence of necrosis in the remaining macrophages” (Robinson et al., 2015). 

This is in the notion of “associated bacterial infections”:

Secondary Bacterial Infections Associated with Influenza Pandemics

Front Microbiol. 2017; 8: 1041. This is an official National Institute of Health document:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5481322/

So Trump was right. But it does not matter: the owners of the world have said that Trump is wrong, so Trump is wrong. And the owners are right. Immense power and money are always right. If you say otherwise, you will get banned from appearing in social media, even in a minute way. Immense, deep, secret and obscure forces have actually found a way to shut me down, and I am presently using methods used in China to publish the present document. This is why I am writing a lot these days. Like the flower dying, and blooming a final time.

TRUMP CENSORSHIP AND MEDIA BIAS:

Here is the context, straight from Reuters, Reuters is owned by mostly one guy who got it from his father who got it from his own father, who got it from ancestors, etc. A family owned plutocratic hydra originally from Canada…including a Foundation, of course. Similar, a bit even older than the New York Times: we own what you think, because we created it. The sort of typical Trump hating GLOBAL PLUTOCRATIC ENTITY :

WASHINGTON, Oct 6 (Reuters) – A coronavirus patient himself, President Donald Trump on Tuesday said Americans were learning to live with the pandemic, posting comments online that drew a rebuke from Facebook and Twitter for likening the COVID-19 death toll to that of the annual flu.

A day after leaving a nearby hospital for the White House, where he will receive intensive treatments unavailable to most people, the Republican, 74, again understated the effects of the virus on social media.

Notice the US president is downgraded to “Republican” (although he spent much of his life as a Democrat), and a selfish one: intensive treatment unavailable to most people. In truth, a courageous experimenter; Trump was the 275th person to receive Regeneron’s antibody cocktail. Proposed experimental treatment for his aorta aneurysm, Albert Einstein declined… although he was dying from said aneurysm. The treatment is now standard… So Reuters claims Trump “understated”… in other words: lied. And Reuters to quote the tweet Twitter banned: 

“Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter and Facebook ( FB ).

Facebook removed the Trump post for breaking its rules on COVID-19 misinformation, according to CNN.

“This is a lie. The flu doesn’t kill 100,000 a year,” Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat, tweeted.

TECHNICAL APPENDIX:

Here is a quote from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5481322/

Abstract

Lower and upper respiratory infections are the fourth highest cause of global mortality (Lozano et al., 2012). Epidemic and pandemic outbreaks of respiratory infection are a major medical concern, often causing considerable disease and a high death toll, typically over a relatively short period of time. Influenza is a major cause of epidemic and pandemic infection. Bacterial co/secondary infection further increases morbidity and mortality of influenza infection, with Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Staphylococcus aureus reported as the most common causes. With increased antibiotic resistance and vaccine evasion it is important to monitor the epidemiology of pathogens in circulation to inform clinical treatment and development, particularly in the setting of an influenza epidemic/pandemic.

Keywords: influenza, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, pandemic

Virally induced death of immune cells assist in the evasion of host defenses and hinders the clearance of the virus promoting the development of infection. Studies have shown a 90% reduction of alveolar macrophages in mice within a week of influenza infection, and evidence of necrosis in the remaining macrophages (Robinson et al., 2015). Necrosis and pyroptosis are pro-inflammatory due to their role in the release of cytokines. These cell death pathways allow for the rapid release of intracellular contents, including any viral components, from the infected host cell promoting host inflammatory responses and the formation of a cytokine storm which causes host tissue damage (Cundell et al., 1995; Rock and Kono, 2008; Lamkanfi and Dixit, 2010; Cauley and Vella, 2015). Furthermore infection with some influenza subtypes, for instance H1N1 and H5N1, typically result in lymphopenia, a state of abnormally low levels of lymphocytes, which has been associated with higher viral load. de Jong et al. (2006) found influenza infection caused lower levels of cytotoxic T cell lymphocytes, which would therefore negatively affect acquired immunity (de Jong et al., 2006; Cunha et al., 2009).

Influenza infection has been shown to increase the adherence of S. aureus (as well as H. influenzae and S. pneumoniae) to host pharyngeal cells (Fainstein et al., 1980). In addition to this, mouse models have highlighted increased morbidity and mortality in mice that are pre-infected with influenza before they are exposed to S. aureus vs. those just exposed to S. aureus.

Two Women Revolutionize Science, Life, And Hope

October 8, 2020

This Year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry Honors an Immense Revolution in All Fields of Humanity, Including Aging, And Thus Of Course, Wisdom All Over…

For the longest time, women were treated as mental retards generally incapable of creative thinking. There is actually no reason to believe women are less capable, they were just oppressed. The oppression of women did not just discard half of humanity: by making women stupid, it guaranteed stupid children in the next generation. Sexist countries are stupid countries. Wisdom is not just deep, it can be brutal…

Several women shine as creators of the greatest ideas in the history of civilization: Aspasia, Pericles’ second wife, defined the Open Society and gave him all his good ideas. Queen Bathilde of the Franks outlawed slavery.., 13 centuries ago (just when Islam enshrined sexism!).

Gabrielle-Émilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil, marquise du Châtelet was arguably a more important physicist than roughly any man, including Newton. Not only did she discover infra red radiation, but she discovered energy (Newton had confused momentum, the impetus of Buridan, with energy; energy is the integral relative to speed of momentum… Émilie du Châtelet had translated Newton in French; she was also a top philosopher.

Then of course there is DNA. Two guys got the Nobel for it, one of them a racist (Watson). A woman, Rosalyn Franklin, had done all the hard work they used, taking the X rays… And died from it (X ray induced leukemia)….

Notice I didn’t even mention Marie Curie, who is the only person who got scientific Nobels in two different scientific fields… Although stellar, there are bigger stars. Her daughter Irene also a Nobel in chemistry, for the discovery of man-made elements, and went on to discover nuclear fission in 1937 (the 1944 Nobel for that was weirdly given in 1945, to Otto Hahn, a dishonest German Nazi who was just the correspondent Irene had succeeded to instruct… Sweden can be strange… See the Assange story for further strangeness of the same type…)

With Crispr, two XX scientists turned a curiosity into an invention that will transform the human race into a much better race (hahaha). The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2020 was awarded jointly to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna “for the development of a method for genome editing.”

At the time, they were working at the University of California, Berkeley (Doudna is still there, Charpentier is research director at the Max Planck Institute in Berlin). Oct. 7, 2020

Emmanuelle Charpentier, left, and Jennifer Doudna may have made the most important biological advance since the discovery of the structure of DNA.

When Jennifer Doudna was in sixth grade, she came home one day in Hawai’i to find that her dad had left a paperback titled “The Double Helix” on her bed. She thought it was one of those detective tales she loved. When she read it on a rainy Saturday, she discovered she was right. As she sped through the pages, she became enthralled by the intense drama, filled with colorful characters, about ambition and competition in the pursuit of nature’s wonders. Even though her high school counselor told her girls didn’t become scientists, she decided she would.

She would help to make what the book’s author, James Watson, later told her was the most important biological advance since he and Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA (Watson and Crick were helped by a lot of other people). She worked with a brilliant Parisian biologist named Emmanuelle Charpentier to turn a curiosity of nature into an invention that will transform the human species (and probably its pets): an easy-to-use tool that can edit DNA. They were helped by another woman who was a professor at UC Berkeley in another domain. Known as Crispr, the new method ushered in a new universe of medical miracles, moral questions, and an alluring future (who wants to decay and die of old age? Not me).

For this accomplishment, on Wednesday they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. It is a recognition, not just of those two, but also that the development of Crispr will hasten our transition to the next great innovation revolution. And that biology is chemistry (I think it’s more: Quantum Physics).

The past half-century has been a digital age, based on the microchip, the computer and the internet. All of these use electrons flowing as if in ducts. It’s all classical physics in a sense, not fundamentally different from computing with water flowing in canals.

Now we are entering a Quantum-Life-science era. Children who study digital coding will be joined by those who study the code of life, and those who study Quantum coding. Both will be connected, because life, including DNA, is not just classical, but also Quantum. It will be a revolution that will someday allow us to cure diseases, fend off the pandemics of viruses and other microbes all excited by a warming planet, and (if we decide it’s wise) to design humans with the genetic features or modifications we deem superior (wisdom, philosophy will have to grow in proportion).

Generic engineering will also allow us to become multi-centenarians, as some whales are, and gather the wisdom brought by advanced years, not to say centuries.

When one will be able to live twenty centuries, one will not risk, as the Greek heroes did, after only twenty years alive, that the only way to reach immortality was to die in the glory of going out, destroying another country…

As Joe Biden did.

Except there was no glory in what he did, killing millions on the cheap, and not living up to his responsibilities.

Greatest War Criminal Of Twenty-First Century Running For Office

October 7, 2020

Joe Biden was one of the instigator of the invasion of Iraq. Biden chaired the Senate Commission during 2002 which provided the reasons to invade Iraq. The Guardian detailed his role in selecting biased, pro-war witnesses. The ideology of Joe Biden is that of the Davos plutocracy, a global hydra gorged on offshoring jobs where the US law doesn’t reach. He is also Senator of the state which is, worldwide, the ultimate tax heaven. What could go wrong, from a progressive point of view?

A New York Times’ editorial makes a lot of good points about Joe Biden’s program, nice little points to dream of. However, the invasion of Iraq, a war of aggression, which killed millions, was a crime against humanity. The fact that the Editorial Board of the New York Times doesn’t use once the word “Iraq” is a testimony to bias so deep, that it is discombobulating. What else did the Editorial Board forget to mention which is most significant? Under Obama, manufacturing rolled over, life expectancy went down (for the longest and deepest in time of peace), and inequality reached a higher level than ever. The Editorial Board say it will not happen again. Maybe that’s as naïve as when I spent two years of my life working hard to get president Obama elected, just to see the unfortunate developments I mentioned, unfold. Biden says he will augment taxes. But that’s not how the hyper wealthy and hyper powerful are controlled… Because like Biden and his S corporation trick, they use loopholes to avoid taxes all together….

***

So sure are the Biden people that they will win, that the NYT actually published the preceding comment. Only three of the readership approved… the rest is too brain washed…

***

David St Clair from Wilmington struck back:

So…. now that you’ve got out that vitriol, what are you suggesting? 4 more years of Trump, a man who doubles down on divisiveness rather than learning from mistakes as Biden has done his entire career? Seriously??

***

I replied, and the reply was NOT published by the New York Times:

@David St Clair Whether truth is vitriolic or not, is immaterial. Truth is the truth, even when it hurts the Deep State. Biden is arguably the greatest war criminal of the Twenty-first Century still running for office, worldwide. All those voting for him will implicitly vote for the greatest crime against humanity of the Twenty-first Century. Arguing that one does not like so and so because  he is “divisive“, when millions got killed from the actions of Joe Biden is beyond words. All of this is very well documented. My essay “Do Iraqi Lives Matter” contains an extensive extract of The Guardian on the subject, with all the links. This is an extremely serious matter.

The New York Times rightly deplored many times the fact the New York Times did not focus enough on The Holocaust during World War Two. Had the New York Times paid attention to the Holocaust (they had the data from reliable sources), things would have been different… But, well, at the time the NYT editors may have thought, what is the alternative? Where would all the vitriol against Hitler lead to? Better not the truth, things will be OK. It’s not OK to vote for someone who took part in a conspiracy which was bound to lead to the death of millions, as it did. For what? Take Iraq out of oil production. That elevated the price of oil, long enough to enable Wall Street to invest massively in fracking under Obama-Biden, making the US number one in fossil fuels.  

***

Anna from NY7:

And what has Trump done for you?

***

The New York Times published my reply:

@Anna Personally Trump has done nothing for me. I do appreciate Trump’s efforts against the global plutocracy which controls all the media, worldwide, and keep on offshoring jobs, dreams and power by making deals with less democratic regimes, like Xi’s China. Trump’s efforts require courage and are historically correct. Offshoring power to escape local laws is how the Roman Republic went down (google my name, plutocracy, and Rome). Personally I may profit from a Biden presidency… But that would be selfish of me…

Who Did The Nazis Fear The Most?

October 6, 2020

Let’s rephrase this slightly. The question is WHO, not what, the German military feared the most in World War Two. The answer was given by Adolf Hitler himself, in 1942 (and he was following declarations from several of his own generals and marshals).

At Bir Hakeim in May June 1942, 3,750 French prevented the entire Afrika Korps and Italian armor to encircle the British army. The stakes were so high, Rommel went to the front line and exposed himself to French fire. He said: “The fate of my army depended upon it!”. Actually, it was the fate of the entire Thousand Year Reich: if Rommel had encircled the British Eight army, there was no significant allied force all the way to eastern India. The Nazis planned to seize Palestine, kill all the Jews, and then grab Iraqi oil: the Nazis needed oil desperately, be it only to have enough to train their pilot and motorize their armies.

French Legionnaires counterattacking at Bir Hakeim. The entire French army had burrowed in the sandy desert.

The resistance of general Koenig at Bir Hakeim lasted three weeks, long enough for the British army to escape. Bir Hakeim was more crucial than the battle of Thermopylae: the Eight Army lived to fight another day, and crushed an extended Afrika Korps a few months later, on the border of Egypt.

Hitler told his cabinet that Bir Hakeim was one more demonstration that the French were the second best soldiers after the Germans, and that is why France should be completely destroyed. (His cabinet pointed out that doing this would guarantee that Germany would lose the war. Hitler had to agree.) After the war, Generalmajor Friedrich von Mellenthin wrote, “In the whole course of the desert war, we never encountered a more heroic and well-sustained defence

As the Nazis kept on pointing out, especially after they got defeated, it is the French who attacked the Nazis in 1939, not the other way around. French diplomacy stiffened the Polish spine and then persuaded the British to add an addendum to the Franco-Polish Treaty (Britain had sobered up from the fall of the Spanish Republic). The Nazis replied by making their alliance with the Soviets official. When the Nazis attacked France, in May 1940, they were using Soviet oil. Prior, they had used US/Texaco oil…

Why is this so important? First, the Jews and the nascent reborn Israel would have extinguished. Second, with Iraqi oil and the entire Arab world to help them out, the Nazis could well have cut off the US Lend Lease line to the Soviet Union, crucial to Stalin. Third, the performance of the Luftwaffe would have climbed considerably, with enough oil to train pilots, and the main problem with Nazi jets, gas guzzling, would have been less of a consideration (and more importantly getting some rare minerals the Nazis needed for jet engines’ alloys). Fourth, Stalingrad would not have happened as its strategic importance, holding the left flank of the drive to Baku oil fields, would have been irrelevant.

The Second World War would have taken a very different turn… 3,750 heroes (and one woman!) prevented this.

COVID Censorship On Social Networks Monopolies To Hurt Trump

October 6, 2020

Twitter removed the following Tweet from Trump:

Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Twitter removed the tweet and added: This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible. Learn more

Trump is right: a bit of perspective is needed here. According to the World Health Organization, Pneumonia killed more than 808 000 children under the age of 5 in 2017, accounting for 15% of all deaths of children under 5 years. COVID lockdowns disorganize healthcare gravely, to the point that they kill more than the alternative, now that the first surprise is past.

***

Twitter and related tech monopolies were fostered to monopoly powers under the Obama administration to manage and spy on We The People. The tech monopolies are anxious to get Trump out of the way. They help, by depicting him as a “misleading and potentially harmful” criminal. So they apply censorship for all to see, in the hope that the fools will thing less of Trump. Now the plutocratic media will say: look Trump is anti-science, they had to remove his misleading, harmful tweet. Tech monopolies have other censorship methods which can’t be seen (but have been applied to me for more than a decade; Tucker Carlson discovered that method the hard way on his show a week ago…).

Hacker who went to college just two years. Hacked a company, and leveraged that into a career. Became a high multibillionaire from stock appreciation caused by Twitter monopoly position (not from profits). Dates models. Knows what viral truth is from being a monopolistic genius. Loved by its sponsor, the Global Deep State.

Closing down countries to fight COVID was justified when the virus was unknown, without therapeutics. But the situation has changed. Lockdowns  have become counterproductive. Twitter thinks it knows science but it probably does not even read Science Magazine (I have a life honorary membership to Science).

Here is from: COVID-19 affects HIV and tuberculosis care. Quarraisha Abdool Karim, Salim S. Abdool Karim. Science 24 Jul 2020, Vol. 369, Issue 6502, pp. 366-368. DOI: 10.1126/science.abd1072.

Access to medical care for non–COVID-19 conditions was limited during the lockdown, with health facilities experiencing declines in the number of TB and HIV patients collecting their medication on schedule. The World Health Organization estimates that a 6-month disruption of antiretroviral therapy could lead to more than 500,000 additional deaths from AIDS-related illness in 2021 and a reversal of gains made in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (10). In South Africa, 1090 TB patients and 10,950 HIV patients in one province have not collected their medications on schedule since the start of the national lockdown (11). A national survey of 19,330 individuals in South Africa found that 13.2% indicated that their medication for chronic disease was inaccessible during the lockdown (12). Furthermore, hospital admissions for HIV and TB declined as a result of hospitals reducing nonurgent admissions in preparation for a surge of COVID-19 cases and owing to closures to reduce exposure to COVID-19 patients. The potential negative impact on the continuity of care for HIV and TB patients could have substantial repercussions for both treatment and control, including development of drug resistance (6).

One can also consult the World Health Organization:

The cost of inaction: COVID-19-related service disruptions could cause hundreds of thousands of extra deaths from HIV.

At this point, COVID is used politically. Statistics are unreliable: one cannot compare countries to each other, or even to themselves in the fullness of time. There is no universal criterion of when a person died from COVID. If someone with COVID dies in a motorbike crash dies, will that person be counted as a COVID death? It depends. Should it be counted as a COVID death? It depends. The victim could have developed Guillain-Barré syndrome. Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system. It seems FDR had it (it was not Polio). COVID patients can develop it, it is not so rare with COVID, days after their other symptoms are gone. 

Twitter and company are censors and mind manipulators. Their behavior is anti-civilizational. Potentially harmful. In their desire to get their way, they use censorship. They have ways which prevent ideas and rebellious authors to spread.

And the tech monopolies can kill because they spread misinformation, perhaps unwittingly, but certainly deliberately. The coronavirus is, basically, airborn. Most masks do not stop it. So people get it from confined spaces. Chinese dictatorship disinformation fostered the belief the coronavirus was spreading mostly from surfaces and masks stopped it. Both assertions seem increasingly false. Meanwhile Brazil is using Sinevac, the Chinse COVID vaccine made in China, and widely distributed there already. Hey, maybe I should be censored for propagating this truth which the Chinese dictatorship loving tech monopolies will surely find misleading? Anything which question the ways and means of the origin of this coronavirus now, is beyond “fringe”: it is potentially “misleading and harmful”.

Tech monopolies are a disaster for the progress of equity, social justice, humanity, mind and science, or even tech: they steal with impunity from all, Obama made it so, thus it should be right. Obama was the puppet with the strongest strings.

Don’t worry: I am censored aplenty already, the truth shall not go far. And enjoy this site while it still exists: unknown forces have tried to take it down since I published: Do Iraqi Lives Matter? I wonder why not.

Speaking of “fringe”, my friend Roger Penrose was long viewed as “fringe”. Just as yours truly, but more justifiably famously, Penrose believes Quantum Mechanics is coming short. He believes, as I do, in “objective collapse”. My idea is that matter distribution itself causes collapse… creating inertia and Dark Matter, among others things. In any case, Penrose was not well considered among “serious” physicists. However it has become increasingly clear that serious physicists are not serious. Recent physics Nobels have gone to astronomy and Quantum Optics (as they should have). Forty years ago, it would have been unimaginable that Penrose would get the Nobel in physics. In my eyes, he deserved it. But at the time, he was viewed as too “fringe”. Well, he just got the Nobel. So there is a ray of hope that significance arises anew…

Truth without significance has no meaning.
