Too Many Young People Are Dangerously Idiotic Sheep, Why?

November 29, 2020

Yesterday I was (partly) running on one of my preferred trails above magnificent lake Tahoe. The trail was icy in part. In the central section above the water itself, I met four young, standard couples, composed of a human female and a human male. They were all masked. Imagine the scene: an extremely steep forest with large trees, the blue lake expanse to the east, ten kilometers wide at that point, the first road miles away, and each of these separated couples, wearing masks. As if they were wearing masks with each other all the time. What were they defending themselves from? The pristine wilderness?

Icy Trail, Magnificent Views, Potential Very Big Drop, Rubicon Trail Lake Tahoe, 11/28/2020

Each couple was in great difficulty: dressed like tourists with standard winter footing, they were on an icy path, less than two feet wide, above a deadly drop-off, up to two hundred feet, or more, straight down to the lake. Their shoes had not much grip on the ice, they were tottering on the verge of death. Fortunately it was rather warm and the brooks were flowing with water (instead of being solid steep ice). I ran past them as they squealed in vain. No doubt they all voted for Biden because Trump was “not scientific”.

Wearing masks is “scientific”, if ordered by those young people leaders, the well-heeded elite of crooks full of biotech stocks. Leaders with a grip so strong on the weak minds of young people, that here they were, displaying total, squared idiocy on a dangerous trail. Squared idiocy because it was the multiplication of the mask idiocy by the footwear idiocy. Their probability of dying from COVID basically zero, their probability of tumbling to their death abysmally high. 

On such a dangerous trail, in winter, one should wear crampons. I am used to masked idiots asking free minds wearing no mask to “cover-up” in the complete wilderness, from five meters away in the wind, and then delighted when they switch to the grossest insults when one does not obey their blatant idiocy.

Here the idiots couldn’t talk: their teeth were chattering from the horror of eminent death, their eyes coming out of their skulls, death was a slip away. As I passed them, I admonished them with refined cruelty: ”You are wearing useless mask. Masks will not save your lives, because you do not wear crampons, you should not be on this trail!”

Displaying such a level of idiocy is a great danger for humanity. In Northern California, chances are that many of these young people are among those steering the world, completely ignorant types who decide what is true and what is false, for the whole world, following like throngs of maniacal lemmings. In truth, such Silicon types are completely fake themselves, and, on this trail, it was obvious, even to their clueless selves. The main problem with them tumbling to their death was the trail would thereafter be closed… Not that this would stop me, closed trails actually attract me, but such a beautiful place should not be closed to the world.

According to polls, Biden was elected by young people coming in droves to vote for him, as if he were their savior. Visualize this: a veteran ultra major US politician, in ultimate power for half a century, a major Neocon, saving the world from the one who brutally took out US troops from all sorts of countries, and directed the production of three working COVID vaccine in ten months.

It makes sense: remember, they are ignorant of most things, just full of silicon, hopefully, they have no idea that Biden was one of the main authors of the greatest crime against humanity of the Twentieth Century, the invasion of Iraq; more than three million dead and counting. Less hopefully they know Biden attacked Iraq but it is of no consequence to them: all they care about is themselves and their peers. 

The problem with all too many young people is that they believe 100% all the propaganda the Global Deep Plutocracy inflicts on them. Actually they do not view it as infliction, or the subjugation it is, but as a liberation, and a pretext to impose themselves upon others. 

For all too many people, nowadays legit “source” means certified Global Deep Plutocratic outlet: CNN (Ted Turner), NYT (same family since 19C), Washington Post (Bezos/Amazon), Reuters (nearly for two centuries property of Reuters family), AP (a consortium of plutocratic media), Factcheck.Org. I happened to have a (once friendly) relationship with (one of) the main plutocratic financiers of Factcheck.Org, a hereditary plutocratic crook, who took very badly my exposition of his corruption to someone else… who immediately violated professional secrecy he was bound to, and reveal to the Factcheck plutocrat that I knew what he had invested in (something horrible).

Many of the arrogant parrots out there evoke “science”. They have often no notion of “science” or even culture: computer programming is no more science than ordering one’s room is science. Zuckerberg and Gates did one year of college. Jack Dorsey from Twitter started his fortune with criminal hacking. Now he poses as paragon of monkish like morality, complete with deranged appearance. 

Science does not say masks work in all and any cases. Science says the efficiency of masks in a medical setting is 70%. In a public setting, 0%, scientific studies have shown. Yes, that was a zero.  

Why should it be different? The virus is aerosol, carried by droplets one tenth of a micron across…HEPA filters and UV stop it. Masks do not. All countries which went into a mask frenzy saw a tremendous flare-up, because the uneducated thought they were protected, when actually they were not. I try very hard NOT to wear a mask, but even harder to avoid places with potentially airborne virus. 

So why are so many of the youth so idiotic? Because the Global Deep Plutocracy wanted it so. In California public schools are shuttered; teaching is less than 12 hours a week, half of it about Great Leader Iraqus Maximus Biden, why Bad Lives Splatter should follow him and his Kamelat. 

Obviously public education has failed, as intended by the hereditary elite. Because it is hereditary: Zuck went to the number one private school in the USA.and then Harvard, Gates, similar story, with the dad top lawyer in his state, and the mom an IBM director. Failure for the people, success for the elite. The dumber the population, the more exploitative the elite. An infernal spiral down to civilizational collapse. 

But you know what, now some of the wise know how this works, and that that’s why it may not work again.

All is opinion. Redeeming Truth… And “Democratic” Plutocrats

November 28, 2020

All is opinion. Learn.

Facts are opinions which are fully justified.

And all too often opinions rest on facts which are not fully justified.

Nietzsche argued that truth is impossible—there can only be perspective and interpretation, driven by a person’s interests or ‘will to power’. Against [empiricism], which halts at [observable] phenomena— “No, facts is precisely what there is not, only interpretations” (Will to Power § 481). The doctrine that there are no facts, only interpretations, Nietzsche sometimes calls ‘perspectivism‘. 

Picture is of Yosemite Valley, looking towards Half Dome (not visible from mist). “Three Brothers” formation front and left, “Sentinel” back right, Yosemite Falls Buttress to the left background, and Washington Column can be guessed behind it. I climbed on Three Brothers many times. Two parts where I used to climb spectacularly collapsed. Over my climbing career, no less than five (5) places where I climbed collapsed, including the place where I did a spectacular first ascent, fast and free after nearly getting killed in an avalanche. 2,500 feet of buttress gone, causing a Richter III earthquake…

I go further than Nietzsche. Economy of Thought (ET), not just Will to Power (WP) is a major driver of human behavior. In a sense ET is the opposite of WP. WP asks for energy, ET reduces the demand for energy. One expands and attacks, the other shrinks and conserve (energy).

Hopefully Biden (and Pelosi) have enough self-knowledge, and general knowledge to realize that, in light of history, they are war criminals and criminals against humanity… A deeper truth will, hopefully, be preferred by the perpetrators to the asinine chorus of the sycophants…

Hopefully, then, they will try to redeem themselves, and will try to enact policies that make them look better in the fullness of time. A fundamental drive of “Populism” is to unleash the animal instincts of the general population (not just those of the oligarchs). This empowerment of all now means .more direct democracy, more debate, and unleashing mental creativity. That will require to rollback the destruction of the Patent System which favored well-financed monopolies. 

Nominating Yellen Secretary of the Treasury is a step in the right direction (Trump had her, and came to regret her, after he didn’t renew her). Excluding the career Neocon, dictators promoting, war fostering, hereditary plutocrat Susan Rice, was another step in the right direction. There were more discrete steps, also in the positive direction, as when Biden (I saw it live) said rejoining the Paris Climate Accord would be “subject to negotiations”… As are “many other things”. 

Indeed. The climate Paris accord was a terrible thing for those ecologically minded: it was a blank check for the most major polluters to keep on polluting… While getting a rent from the most advanced nations, which as usual, get accused of… being most advanced and too democratic?

The WHO was another disaster. Faced with a pandemic, it refused to launch an inquiry on what Taiwan knew. Taiwan took measures against COVID 19… in 2019! COVID 19, Taiwan 19. The WHO then insisted that a ban on international travel was uncalled for… While China had already blocked, weeks earlier, all internal travel, and especially inside the city of Wuhan (total lock down), or within Hubei province. The US paid to the WHO something like ten times what China paid. Still China made the rules… and the virus!

How do I know Biden and Pelosi may want to redeem themselves? Well, Biden said so about the Crime Bill of 1994, the “New Jim Crow”… the author of which he was. he confessed, in one of the two debates, that it was an error (which the entire Senate committed he insisted… Actually 97 Senators, not 100… And the fact remains that he wrote it, all by himself!)

It’s a hop and a skip away from admitting the same about foreign policy, and Iraq in particular (he and his Foreign Sec has confessed only to bad “execution” so far).

Pelosi’s unhinged anti-Trumpism was not just from her being a member of the political plutocratic class: she used any single occasion to proclaim herself a good person and even a good Catholic. She is not the thief she looks like, making a fortune from politics, and the accomplice of Bush in the matter of Iraq (which she compounded by refusing to impeach Bush on Iraq in 2006, when she headed the US Congress!)

We will see where Biden goes. But other things have surfaced, monsters from the past, more blatantly monstrous than ever, pursuing their descent into the abyss, namely President Barack Obama coming out with striking pronouncements about how “we will have to work” with the Big Tech monopolies he himself created… to find out what truth is. Ignorant greedsters of the world unite and impose their truth on all!

Verily, the only thing these monopolistic people and their servants, who became so wealthy in a few years, by stealing minds, are qualified to find is greed, ever more of it, and outrage, ever more of it.

Most Significant Truths Should Rule

November 25, 2020

Not all truths are created equal. Truth about what is most significant is of most significance. But awareness of signification itself comes from significant education… itself originating from a quest for most significant values.

And this is where what is called “French Theory” (in US elite universities), aka contemporary philosophy, comes short, because it tends to denies that hierarchies of significance are of any significance, which makes no sense as denial of signification is itself of the highest significance… And this sort of nihilism makes sense in a highly plutocratic society, and is a sign of it.

French Theory became popular because it was encouraged by stealth influencers (the CIA recognized it paid more than fifty influential French intellectuals in the 1950s), and their government sponsors, themselves sponsored by the Global Deep Plutocracy.

The essence of “French Theory” (a US academic recipe, using French ingredients!) is that all cultures are equally significant. Lévi-Strauss got the ball rolling, 80 years ago. The view has some merits inside, like diamonds in a rock matrix. However, brandished as an absolute truth it has also been used as a bludgeon against reason and the enlightenment.

Don’t just ask what is true, ask what, or whom, would value such a “truth”.

It it this author’s view that this is not by accident: “French Theory” has been sponsored at the highest level, precisely because it had the value of being a bludgeon against reason.

In practical US politics, it means all proffered opinions are beyond reason. This meta-mood is all over the political and social spectrum. And all what’s left then, is tribalism. This is why the New York Times rejected thousands of my comments: it made a tribal, not reasonable analysis of my comments on their merits. So, when I objected to Biden-Bush (proposed, then implemented) invasion of Iraq, the NYT would not look at my reasons: I was just classified as anti-American, a Jihadist. The Guardian (in the UK) operated the same way… and to this day bans me for that reason (!)

The most significant question is what should Lévi-Strauss derived equality of superficiality be replaced by? It is simple: good arguments and facts, alternative or not, should be extracted, refurbished and used. Trump’s wall started long ago with Cesar Chavez. Chavez knew that illegal or should-not-be-legal immigration was used by the plutocrats. That argument was, and is valid. That contemporary politicians use it should not be a question of colors.

Famously, Roman politics, when the fascist empire degenerated into catholic terrorism, had become just a question of colors. Gone were the ideas and intelligent debate. God could not be put into question. It was not red versus blue but rather green versus yellow. It lasted centuries, and civilization ultimately went extinguished (Rome/Constantinople called the Franks to the rescue in the Eleventh Century twice, and then was captured in 1207 and terminally by Muslim Turks in 1453).

So what is today’s god, forcing us into colors? Well, the mind makers, academia and the Pluto owned media. Their notion of truth of the highest significance is simple: whatever serves plutocracy is true, and the rest is “conspiracy theory”. “Factchecker” organization go as far as claiming that believing that the Deep US State had anything to do with Muslim Fundamentalism is “urban legend”. To show me how true that was the financier of “Factcheck.org” confronted me and threw my own nine year old daughter out of her bilingual school. His truth spanned the world, it was stronger than mine. All what matters in a plutocratic universe. The truth? How many billions?

Real progress will consist into making locally true arguments, no matter the consequences, as long as they don’t miss most significant facts visible to them. Further progress in understanding will be achieved by the opposite process, considering precisely which value(s) participants will attach to such truth(s). So we have to use a pincer approach on truth: the truth no matter what, in conjunction with coming from the other side, the meta approach of pondering what is the matter with that truth which makes it valuable, or toxic, to the actors involved…

Either side of the pincer will have to involve the genealogies of the attending logics… Not just coincidentally reminiscent of the famous “sum over histories” of the path integral approach to Quantum Mechanics… In truth reality, and thus truth is Quantum in more ways than one…

Obama Was Indecent, Yellen Was Decent: Good Appointment, Joe!

November 24, 2020

Incoming Treasury Secretary Yellen Is Decent

TARP was Obama’s province, not Yellen. Yellen, Biden’s incoming Treas. Sec, long time economy prof at UC Berkeley, one of my alma mater, is decent. Obama’s policy of saving “banks” was indecent, and propelled inequality to heavens. And Obama still doesn’t get it, he is all proud to have saved the “banks”. Even Reagan & Bush didn’t do what Obama did. THEY nationalized THOUSANDS of banks. Obama nationalized NONE. https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2009/01/25/tarp-transfer-of-assets-to-rich-people/

GINI measures in one number inequality in a society. Clearly it augmented under Obama, and as a consequence of Obama’s policies. Obama thinks he saved the banks, and talks like it. Actually he saved the rich from their own speculation (rendered possible by Clinton’s destruction of the Banking Act Of 1933. In other words, fake democrats all of them… But Yellen is much more the real thing, a real democrat, at least, when she writes and talks… Whereas Obama, to this day, understands nothing in this subject (and that’s why he kept getting 400K for every single speech he makes to the wealthiest… Good boy Obama…

From my TARP essay, which is nearly 12 years old:

Both US propaganda and way of life were fabricated by the plutocracy to serve itself better.  Those, and various plutocratic plots, need to be dismantled, starting with TARP, which is therein revealed in its full glory as the acronym for “Transferring Assets to Rich People“.

Furtherance of TARP is furtherance of the plutocratic plot that ruined the world, to enrich, and empower the fewOnce the political “leaders” exit power, having used it to serve the wealthiest, they get rewarded accordingly. Now the People have started to rebel by refusing to pay mortgage (which is French for waging one’s life on it, an obviously deplorable concept). Real change can only come through massive nationalization of the financial system, and declaring most of the derivatives’ markets null and void.

***

TRANSFERRING ASSETS TO THE RICH PLOT:

The economic crisis is rolling on, fostered by, and increasing inequality. It was fundamentally caused by the PLUTOCRATIC PHENOMENOM. Just as in the Late Roman empire, the Rich became so powerful, they invented and legislated for themselves ways to increase their wealth faster than the wealth of the nation(s). Not just by tax avoidance schemes [among others, the 15% maximum tax rate money manipulators pay], or exporting jobs overseas, but also by harnessing loans from (ultimately) central banks for speculation (something Clinton’s dismantlement of the Banking Act of 1933 enabled).

Obama $600,000 Speech In Bogota: Outlaw Retroactive Corruption

November 23, 2020

Obama is viewed as the icon of the so-called “left”. At least, so speak the Main Stream Media, which I call the Plutocratic Media, armed with its Plutocratically Correct speech. This is a fascinating inversion of all values. In the four years since leaving the White House, former President Barack Obama has spent his time raising and solidifying his position in the top one percent of the top one percent of Americans. Obama has raked in exorbitant amounts of money for public speaking events and made deals worth millions with multiple companies. Simply put, this is retroactive corruption.

In a revealing slip, at the height of the Great Recession, “Obama quipped that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” That was an inside joke: although his fortune was in excess of twenty million dollars when he entered the White House, Obama did not give his salary to charity as Trump did. Trump is not the first president to donate his salary. Former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Herbert Hoover, both wealthy before they took office, donated all their earnings.

All what you see here is to the Obamas, a piece of the US most expensive island, Martha’s Vineyard. The mansion had been on the market for 15 million dollars. Taxpayers and losers, you worked hard, and your success is great; your great leader, the one of TARP, has been well rewarded by the owners of the world, so you did good, when you loved and admired him. The Obamas have two other mansions. Hey, they are just getting started… to give you lessons on inequality, and your systemic racism… The more the talk about your racism, the less talk about class warfare of the owners against the losers like you.

In May 2019, Obama the caramel idol of the pseudo-left was paid nearly $600,000 to speak at the EXMA conference in Bogotá, Colombia. According to the Bogotá Post, “A conversation with President Barack Obama,” addressed “influential growth strategies” in marketing and other aspects of the marketing economy. No doubt, getting the money from where it is located, namely organized crime, was a prominent concept.

Colombia is infamous for the corruption prevalent in its public sector and military, which costs officially the country $17 billion a year, equivalent to 5.3 percent of its Gross Domestic Product. Colombia exports half of the world’s cocaine and its drug cartels are the government. Corruption and drug money are what Colombia’s Inspector General called “the new cartel”.

Notice that Obama got his highest payment from the quasi-official criminals of the “new cartel”. In other words, the Global Deep Plutocracy is very grateful for Obama’s leadership: criminals of the world, unite! Obama is not just rewarded by the largest criminal organizations in the world, he insures an on-going service to them by providing them with clout, and respectability from the adoring rabble, worldwide, which celebrates the greatness of the one who got a Nobel Peace prize even before he disintegrated weddings in Yemen, and other acts of heroism in the evil dimension of the never vile enough.

While Obama deplores “exploding inequality” in his speeches, the sum he got for one night stand in Bogotá is more than 10 times what the median yearly household income in the US… and 72 times the average worker’s annual income in Colombia.

Obama is rewarded by those who profited from his presidency. His speeches have been given to big Wall Street firms and big investors. Obama gave at least nine speeches to Cantor Fitzgerald, a large investment and commercial real estate firm, and other high-end corporations. Each speech has been at least $400,000… for Obama.

Obama handed the robbers and outright criminals who caused the 2008–09 financial crisis a multi-trillion-dollar bailout (eight trillions by the Fed’s own reckoning). The Obama administration oversaw the largest redistribution of wealth in history from the bottom to the top one percent, eased by mellifluous discourses to the contrary. It was obvious at the time, right from the first few days of the Obama administration, that he had become an agent of the wealthiest plutocrats in the world, and that his presidency was in their service. Individuals such as yours truly, who did so much to get Obama elected, sank in depression…

Interestingly, Obama made the wealthiest so much wealthier that it noticeably diverted economic growth away from the rest of the nation.

Under Obama, the tech monopolies in charge of “populist” surveillance were developed, while the president personally killed thousands of innocent civilians.

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/06/20/obam-j20.htmlAs the World Socialist Web Site puts it, summarizing concepts I have presented in the past:

“In addition to monetary rewards for his service to the financial elite and military-intelligence apparatus, Obama has been lavishly feted by socialites and billionaires such as Richard Branson. Obama was Branson’s special guest in 2017 on a private island where the pair were seen kite surfing and enjoying the amenities of Branson’s exclusive resort.

Michelle Obama has also benefited after the family’s departure from the White House. The couple signed a $65 million book deal with publishing company Penguin Random House for their political memoirs. Michelle’s memoir “Becoming” was the best-selling book of 2018 with over 10 million copies sold. The pair also signed multi-year deals with Netflix and Spotify to produce content aimed at “fostering dialogue” and promoting diversity in entertainment.

Obama’s lucrative post-White House career hobnobbing with the corporate, entertainment and financial elite epitomizes the revolving door relationship between the US government and the private sector. Obama’s rewards are simply retroactive bribery for services rendered to the capitalist elite, who have welcomed him with open arms.

This is all lunacy. That Obama has no moral compass, dignity or the presidential mien many US presidents had in the past is one thing. That most of the world’s population has been so indoctrinated in its subjugation that it cannot what’s wrong with this picture, is something else entirely. This phenomenon of mental subjugation is the most common state of humanity… The strength of Western civilization is that the spirit of subjugation did not flourish as well in the West as anywhere else in the world.

So what to do? Legislate. Presidents or their families, or high level officials and their families, anywhere in the world, should have a low bound on their income after office, say over ten years or more (the occultation period under the Roman Republic for re-election to the Consulship was, in normal times, ten years… There were exception in case of existential wars, for reasons of military leadership) Say one should limit their income to ten times (for presidents) or less (for lesser officials) or the median family income. Moreover office holders, and their families should be forbidden to get ANY money or gift from anyone, individual or corporation, who profited from a legislation they signed or helped to pass (including at the level of senators, deputies . congressmen, and aides).

In other words, I propose to pass laws annihilating the “revolving door” which enables the Global Deep Plutocracy that Biden is getting ready to revive as never before… The idea is that no one should be able to enrich themselves through public service. The reward should be the service and the power it should ephemerally provide with…

So let see this legislation: Time to see if the would-be “progressives” of the “Democratic” Party are for real…

Non Anonymity: US Presidential Election Was Fraudulent In California

November 22, 2020

Anybody receiving my family’s ballots could determine exactly how we voted on everything: in California, for the US Presidential Election of 2020, there was NO PRIVACY SLEEVE: one could see who one voted for, and the name… there was no double envelope, like my HOA (Home Owner Association) has. As far as I am concerned, that makes the election fraudulent in California. Non secret voting is fraud. It may be republican, but it is banana republican.

Grossly anti-civilizational propositions plutocrats paid hundreds of millions for, also “passed“. But how do we know votes against plutocracy were not tossed away? Remember: anti-plutocratic propositions are viewed as “populist“, just as the Trump vote is viewed as “populist”. Because there is a clear mechanism in existence to explain why they would be tossed away: in California, a particular mood reigns, full of hatred and derangement… Against anything “populist“. It is, at this point, pro-Big Monopolistic Tech. It is not just pro-Big Monopolistic Tech, but rabidly so… Because Obama the revered brown life, who matters, was rabidly pro-Big Monopolistic Tech. It is couched as anti-Trump hatred, because Trump sued Google, for monopolistic abuse, but the truth is that Big Monopolistic Tech is the core employer in Northern California, of dozens of thousands of programming lemmings.

The non-anonymity of voting was planned, it is not an accident. Here is a quote from the California government https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/voter-registration/vote-mail: When your vote-by-mail ballot is received by your county elections official, your signature on the return envelope will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match. To preserve the secrecy of your ballot, the ballot will then be separated from the envelope, and then it will be tallied.

Now California voted two-third for Biden (as early as 1998 a Iraq invasion promoter). And that includes the central valley and Orange County which tend to vote Republican. Biden was ahead by 5.5 million votes in California… And half a million in the rest of the USA! A statistically intriguing imbalance…

Sequoia Maple Sky: Not all is bad in California…

Where I am, Berkeley, “Democratism” is rabid. It masquerades as progressivism, but its unreasoned hatred is more in common with traditional US racism. If anything compatible with Trump is uttered, interlocutors beg you to never mention to anyone that such an utterance was heard!

It is troubling to observe individuals with TDS, Trump Derangement Syndrome (I CREATED the neologism!). They have no idea what ails them. No idea that Biden is exactly like what they say Trump is like, what they claim to hate… Just Biden is WAY worse. No idea. So they end up attacking real progressives, or, even worse, basic foundations of civil society. The latter point will last, tragically. These enraged, unthinking characters are all into superficialism, just as racists are in the superficial appearance of skin. They will accuse elderly Jews to be… Nazis: hhttps://www.almanacnews.com/news/2019/04/03/political-polarization-sparks-confrontation-at-starbucks-triggering-online-fury

Somebody who has determined I write from “Saint Petersburg” asked whether I hated Trump haters. Do I hate Trump haters, the ones with the plutocratically administered Trump derangement Syndrome? No, I don’t hate my patients!

I gave more general reasons why the US Presidential elections was fraudulent. Only the plutocratic media molds the minds… because there is no other media. Minds have been privatized by the world’s wealthiest “factcheckers” and their thinkeries, and “academia”. (“Thinkery” is an older word than academia, it was forged by Aristophanes, ridiculizing Socrates, Plato and company.)

Someone said they saw how I was “suckered in”. I was suckered in because my medical drugs, bought cheaply in France, were intercepted by Obama FDA, torn out, some sent back to France, half-destroyed. And now Donald really got me with his most favored nation trick for lowering the price of drugs. Make America Good Again!

But then the gullible turn up their smug faces, and say: “Associated Press, AP, and Reuters are reputable organizations!” In truth, AP and Reuters are PLUTOCRATIC MEDIA. They are literally owned by some of the world’s wealthiest persons, and THEM ONLY. Progressives who get instruction from AP and Reuters are like rabbits taught by wolves.

New York Times is controlled by the same family since the century before the one before the present one. Not quite as old as T Rex, but still pretty old and ravenous. New York Times is a “public” company… but the public has no control whatsoever… (A question of A shares versus B shares…). And those beasts are vicious: a financier of “Factcheck.Org”, heir of one of the greatest names, and lots of money, threw my daughter out of her school. His three blonde children of the superior race owning America, stayed there, the mixed race child was torn from her root, and now cannot be schooled in her native tongue.

Here they go, and they howl: we are good, we are the best (“Optimates” in Latin, the plutocratic party of the Roman Republic, which destroyed it), we are… blue. Blue in the face they are, and they hate the reds. Blue like those without oxygen, red, like the Native Americans covered in ochre earth… What do you mean “blue”, “red”? California voted for two extreme plutocratic propositions #15 and #22… As far as I am concerned, reverting more than a century of workers’ rights makes sense when one has voted for the guy who said, as a US SENATOR-chair, one had to invade Iraq… in 1998… https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/…/biden-invaded-iraq…/

So this is the point, let me repeat slowly: a reason, colossal naivety, “Democrats” voted for Biden is the same reason that enabled those same voters voted for the California Propositions the wealthiest persons in the world asked them to vote for… But there were even worse causes. Not just colossal naivety, but the propensity to vote for the same plutocratic operators… Because they share the same moods. And what mood is that? Preferring basic instincts like hatred and greed to cool analysis. California has become Democrat controlled from a mix of clientelism, greed and Big Monopolistic Tech employment… All of it empowered by an increasing lack of critical and informative education in public schools, while children of the elite go to private schools. Right now, public school children get eight hours of instruction a week, and private school children, 40 hours. Slaves and serfs don’t need much beyond read and write, masters need to outsmart them, and it will be easier if the serfs are so incredibly stupid, that they vote for their own masters…

It’s pretty funny actually, as the main supporters of “Democratism”. the plutocratic way, a beast of contradiction, will be among the victims thereof…

Our Divine Leaders Want Us Obedient. How To Bring Them Back To Human Size

November 20, 2020

For California Governor the Coronavirus Message Is Do as I Say, Not as I Dine
A meal at the French Laundry? A junket to Maui? California’s Democratic leaders have put strict measures in place. If only they would follow them.

That was from the… New York Times [1]. My eleven year old daughter was submitted to four weeks of “voting suppression studies” a sort of hysterical propaganda to justify the dictatorship of a few “Democrats”. It is NOT AT ALL the official California sixth grade program… which focuses on ancient civilizations from the Middle Earth, India and China… More than two thousand years ago. So the little ones were told that those who were not wealthy enough could not vote, nor could some races, or women. All very good that now we can all vote… But do we? Of course not. In Berkeley-Oakland, for decades, people have been free to vote for Barbara Lee.

Barbara Jean Lee (born July 16, 1946) is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for California’s 13th congressional district. Now in her 12th congressional term, Lee has served since 1998, and is a member of the Democratic Party. The district, numbered as the 9th district from 1998 to 2013, is based in Oakland and covers most of the northern part of Alameda County. Lee is the current whip and former co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (2005–2009).

Who does that “whip” strike?

SAN FRANCISCO — It was an intimate meal in a wood-paneled, private dining room in one of California’s most exclusive restaurants in Napa Valley, the “French Laundry”. The cost of dinner starts at $500 per person… without wine. Newsom mentor Willie Brown wrote that he heard the meal’s wine bill alone “was $12,000”. This is a restaurant where the cheapest dinner for two costs what the median US family earns in a week… Before taxes. No one around the table wore masks, not the lobbyists, not even the governor.

Democratic leaders in California have repeatedly ordered residents to be hyper vigilant amid the biggest spike in infections since the Chinese virus pandemic began.

Democratic leaders in California have flouted the state’s coronavirus orders and guidelines. Mr. Newsom and other officials stridently clamored for Californians to make sacrifices to stop the spread of the virus. Most recently beseeching them to stay home and avoid visiting family over Thanksgiving.

California lawmakers went to their traditional vacation cum conference for a week of taxpayer and lobbyist paid a luxury resort Fairmont Kea Lani in south west Maui, Hawaii. Rooms start at more than $500 per person, and up to above $1,600… Full disclosure: I have been in Maui, and I know some people who went to this luxury resort… which is way too expensive for my ethical code. I even asked pointedly why they went there, and the answer was that they liked the luxury, being provided with brand new slippers everyday. In my opinion, humanity has better things to do than new slippers for the wealthiest everyday (if nothing else it prevents investing in biotechnology).

So at the luxury resort, those who vote the laws and those who know which laws they want to pass co-mingle, thanks to the Independent Voter Project… another of these sinister plutocratic conspiracies with a misleading name… All breathing together good coronavirus air in Maui.

The Maui luxury resort extravaganza happened just as California issued explicit guidance on avoiding “nonessential travel to other states or countries.” The elitist malfeasance displayed here by the governor, legislators and lobbyists — from the California MEDICAL Association, no less — knows no limits…. and therein its charms.

Ms. Feinstein, 87 walks regularly through Congress and airports without a mask. The video was widely circulated a day after California issued expanded orders for residents to wear face coverings when they are outside of their homes.

Face coverings the efficacy of which, aside from hospital settings, with more sophisticated, cleaner equipment, has not been scientifically demonstrated… Feinstein obviously knows this, the inefficiency of masks, otherwise she would be wearing one, all the more as she is a “legislator”.

The juxtaposition between the strict orders to the plebs and the behavior of lawmakers does not just undercut a defining message of prudence that the state’s Democrats have sermonized throughout the crisis. It brings up a fundamental question. The sumptuous dinner at the French Laundry was hosted by a prominent California lobbyist, Jason Kinney. The chief executive for the California Medical Association and the organization’s top lobbyist were also there. 50,000 California physicians.

Fascist multimillionaire corrupt Governor Newsom eating his 20,000 dollars meal with his lobbyists and Pluto friends, complete with Californian medical association (of millionaires). No masks, no social distancing, all laws of the land. Newsom turned around and closed the California economy, a few days later, and then imposed a curfew… All of this within days of the dinner above.

Newsom on Monday described the dinner as taking place outdoors. But the photos show a table indoors with a glass sliding door that opens to a courtyard. On Wednesday a spokesman for Mr. Newsom, Nathan Click, said the governor had no further comment. Newsom admitted his sin with glee: “The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted and I’ve got to own that,”

Governor Newsom announced on 7-17-2020 that California Public Schools would be shut down for the rest of the year. Why not? Private schools are open, in person, for the elite, everyday: let the wealthiest be the brainiest, it is safer that way! Newsom’s four children, aged 4 to 11 get superior private school instruction (as Newsom himself explained). Newsom’s kids go to Country Day, a $25,000 per year and per student. So while my daughter in public school is given eight hours of total instruction a week, much of it insisting that listening to US president Trump causes insanity… Newsom’s children learn the California curriculum… ancient civilization in the case of the sixth grade. Yes, in public school as I observe it, the California curriculum in history has been changed by the standards of the present “Democratic” Party propaganda (which is standard fascism, actually, a la Giovanni Gentile‘s definition of fascismo, a tight relationship between the state and the corporations…)

Newsom and the first partner eschewed state public health guidelines to dine with friends at a time when the governor has asked families to scale back Thanksgiving plans,” wrote the Sacramento Bee editorial board on Friday. It added, “If the governor can eat out with friends — and if his children can attend their expensive school — why must everyone else sacrifice?

And the answer to this is that you have got to be used to it. Indeed, why does the elite insists for the plebs to follow ridiculous rules (masks in the wilderness, say)? The juxtaposition between the strict orders to the plebs and the behavior of “Democratic” lawmakers does not just undercut their sermon throughout the pandemic. It brings up a fundamental question: What are they trying to do? Could this flaunting of privilege and disdain for the law, not be a device to mentally condition us further down our debasement?

Is it not because the elite, the Feinsteins (billionaire), the Gettys (once the world’s wealthiest family and Newsom’s telerobotic operator), the Newsoms, know it is important to train Californians to obey senseless orders as if they were dogs… So the mandatory mask wearing, the curfew and the senseless rules (don’t go on the giant beach!) are mostly to inure the plebs to obey senseless orders. It works: the California proletariat voted for Prop 22, which goes back on more than a century of workers’ rights.

Governor Newsom has been a public servant his entire life. After graduation from college, he founded the PlumpJack wine store with family friend billionaire Gordon Getty as an investor. The Getty family was long one of the world’s wealthiest. Newsom’s father was an appeal court’s justice and attorney for Getty oil. Newsom’s maternal great grandfather was a professor of medicine at Stanford University.
Newsom is Californian elite, through and through. Instead of acquiring a professional degree (lawyer, doctor, etc.) Newsom leveraged his acquaintanceship with the elite. Newsom’s friendship with the California elite enabled him to be nominated to the San Francisco Board of Supervisor (and from there, mayor). Newsom was sworn in by his own father.

Being part of the elite insured contracts for Newsom’s flourishing businesses, with a personal income well above a million dollar a year, and more than 700 employees. A long article in the LA Times documented, while Newsom was lieutenant governor, the investment of Getty in ten of eleven Newsom’s businesses. Getty said he treated “Newsom as a son” (SF Chronicle).

Please also notice the immensely wealthy Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi is part of the family (Newsom’s aunt is married to Nancy Pelosi’s’ brother in law). Public education has been basically stopped. My daughter gets eight hours a week, by zoom, half of it unabashed Democratic Party propaganda, as a California public school child. Private school children are back being educated in full and in person, including Newsom’s four private school children. Is that democracy? Or plutocracy?

These distortions of reality are there to impose a new mood. That the plebs should get used to the following: the plebs has to follow orders and the law imposed on itself by the elite, and the elite is above them all. In other words, the plebs has to accept mental (economic, financial) neo-feudalism…

We have see all of this before. This is the essence of fascismo a la Gentile. Giovanni Gentile was described by Mussolini, and by himself, as “the philosopher of Fascism”. The Italian fascists promoted a tight relationship between corporations, plutocrats, governance and workers. The plutocrats came out ahead, the rest, not so much… In 2003, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Gordon Getty was the chief investor in 10 of Newsom’s 11 businesses at the time. Getty dragged in many other plutocrats to invest in Newsom’s businesses. “We’ve assembled our dream team and are ready to embark on creating Tahoe’s most distinctive resort and residences,” said Hilary Newsom, president and partner of Newsom’s PlumpJack Group.

They have assembled your dream team and are ready to embark on creating the world ready to serve them… The Global Plutocrats want us to feel they are divine. However… Si comprehendis [,] non est Deus (if you understand [something], it is not God). As Augustine of Hippo put it in Sermo 117.3.5; PL 38, 663 (Although anti-Christian globally, it does not mean I do not find inspiration in Christian thinking. The exact same idea is found in the Qur’an, spoken by Allah Himself… When Allah is asked to justify His friendliness with the devil and Djinns…)

By inverting Augustine’s idea, we get a remedy. If we understand them, they are not divine. that’s how to bring them down from their perch.

We Are 30,000 Times Less Democratic Than Athens!

November 18, 2020

To pass a law in Athens, when Athens was at her greatest, one needed a minimum of 6,000 votes from 6,000 citizens. Out of a total population of 300,000 (including children, women and slaves). That means one vote for 50 inhabitants.  

To pass a law in the USA, one needs 200 votes in the national assembly (US Congress; actually 218 votes, a number unchanged for more than a century during which the US population more than tripled). Out of a population of 300 millions (actually, 330 millions). That means one vote for 1.5 million people. Now: (1.5)(10^6)/50 = 30,000.

The Athenian/Attica national assembly (ἐκκλησία, ekklesía) required a quorum of 6,000 citizens to pass (important) laws. A law approved by 50% or more would pass. Any free adult male above 20 was eligible to pass laws… And had the right to address the ekklesia (that was part of ISEGORIA). The officials of the democracy were in part elected by the Assembly and in part chosen by lottery in a process called sortition.

This required a considerable effort: the average citizen needed a day to travel from the average farm in Attica. Voters were financially compensated (when they had not been the effort on the families was too great). The Ecclesia was overseen by the council of 500 (boule). Those and the courts (a minimum of 200 people, on some occasions up to 6,000) were selected by lot. 

Selecting overseeing assemblies by lot prevented nepotism and the purchase of sympathy in exchange for gifts (a gift could be just a traffic of influence; Joe Biden once memorably described exactly how that happened in his long career… and added that it could not be avoided… well, with Athenian or Roman term limits, it could have been avoided…) 

The Athenian Constitution was as complex as the Roman one. In the Athenian and Roman Republic, citizens voted laws directly. In Rome the elected Tribunes of the People oversaw the National Assembly and its voting by “tribes”. In Athens there were no tribunes, but the the Boule, selected by lottery, oversaw the Ekklesia…

The Athenian democracy was severely criticized and even ridiculed by Socrates and Plato. But the latter, who wrote about it, belonged to the .1% of Athens, and had an obvious taste for dictatorship (Plato befriended the tyrant of Syracuse, something that was doubly strange, not just because the tyrant was a bloody tyrant, and it doesn’t look philosophical to befriend a tyrant… but also because the destruction of Athens as great power happened from her defeat during the siege of Syracuse, in 413 BCE). 

Many of these Platonic critiques were justified: some institutions inside Athens such as the military and the navy, needed to be professionalized at the highest level.

Contemporaneously, the Roman Republic had found how to accomplish this (but with an official aristocratic component, the Patricians, that Athens did not have). Rome avoided terrible mistakes such as the attack on Syracuse (Rome did attack Syracuse, but only when pretty sure of victory, and with a good motivation, whereas the Athenian scheme against Syracuse was grotesque, and not a just war…). Rome, in a much longer history, avoided the sort of crime against humanity Athens committed against Melos [1]. I am not saying Rome was soft and cuddly, far from it. But Rome wisely always waited to have excellent reasons to be really mean. The Melos atrocity made much of Greece fear Athens, and ally itself against Athens… Whereas Rome, by avoiding blatant atrocities before it turned plutocratic, kept an excellent reputation as fair and an acceptable ruler, and was well-considered, even by its natural enemies…

In any case, the European Middle Ages would institute such institutions, starting with the guilds (around 1000 CE) and the Feudal order (initially coming from the Counties Charlemagne had set-up)… and then the legal and medical orders… Followed by the judicial system set in place by Louis IX of France (the US system derives from it) and then the national police set-up by his grandson Philip IV Le Bel, King of France

  I call such institutions “Democratic Institutions”: they are part of the Deep State, and are compatible with both tyranny and democracy. And they are both necessary to make either optimal. But now we have them, so the debate launched by Socrates has been satisfactorily concluded.     

What we need to do is rebuild the DIRECT DEMOCRACY. How do we avoid disasters such as people voting according to what Big Money has decided? (As Prop 15 and 22 in California, on Nov 3, 2020) Simple: we make the purchase of minds illegal for violating isegoria. 

Nowadays voting in person is easy, because of the Internet. It is easier to verify the identity of someone using the Internet than using the methods used in California, November 3, 2020: identities were not even verified!

My leaders should not be the ignorant representatives who are supposed to be representing me. How could impartial knowledge be represented by greedy ignorance? How could long term wisdom be represented by self-obsessed professional prostitutes who made a career of influence trafficking?  

Last but not least, the number above, 30,000 as in 30,000 times less democratic is a minimum. Indeed our 200 legislators or so, being professionals influence traffickers, cannot be compared to the free citizens of Attica, who had no agenda, no masters, no employers, no higher-ups, and especially not plutocrats, or plutocratic institution to satisfy. So the “200” we put in the denominator should be actually restricted to the incorruptibles determined not to make politics into a career, nor to extract a career out of politics… Verily very few of them, and certainly none of the divas and stars which make the political world as we have it…

So let’s recapitulate: only a few hundreds of us vote… There is no isegoria, no parrhesia. Why should we call this democracy? Shouldn’t we instead call it ‘fake democracy”… To go along with the fake news, fake history, fake Federal Reserve bank, fake meritocracy, fake educational system, fake equality of chances, fake justice, fake debates, fake issues, fake problems, fake outrages, fake Paris Climate Accord… And now maybe even now a fake president (tell us ain’t true, Joe)… But all too real Global Deep Plutocracy?

[1] Athens invaded Melos in the summer of 416 BC and demanded that the Melians surrender and pay tribute to Athens or face annihilation. The Melians refused, so the Athenians laid siege to their city. Melos surrendered in the winter, and the Athenians executed their men and enslaved their women and children.

***

[2] The genesis of Rome, its slow rise as a (nearly direct, yet “mixed”) democracy was extremely full of conflicts, but just of the right size. Athens in the end of the Fifth Century BCE and the Fourth Century BCE found herself fighting for survival against the mightiest enemies, and actually plutocracies full of hatred for democracy, hell bent to destroy democracy by all and any means… (Sparta plus Persia in the 5C BCE; Macedonia plus Persia/Seleucids in the 4C BCE.)… So no wonder Athens got crazy….

NO ISEGORIA, NO PARRHESIA: Why The US Election Was Fraudulent

November 16, 2020

The recent US elections were deeply fraudulent. 1) There was no isegoria. 2) There was no parrhesia. 3) Global Deep Plutocracy owns all the media, thus most minds, and the parrots know nothing else. 4) Early voting happened before even the first debate. Many people changed their minds, they had already voted. Even worse, in California, anonymity of voting was forsaken, as there were no double envelopes, when voting by mail. Rabid partisans are conditioned to claim none of this is of any consequence: that, per se, is an even deeper sort of fraud, the inability to understand the concepts of freedom and equity.

Those who do not know isegoria and parrhesia, those pillars of democracy, are condemned to read until the end of this article.

In the last 15 years, many US states used voting machines leaving no paper trace (Georgia just switched back to leaving a paper trace, so can make, and is making, a recount, because the presidential vote was so close, it’s the law). That the elections were fraudulent is beyond a challenge: when I voted, my identification was not asked. I could have been anybody voting in my supposed name. An extension of this idea is “vote harvesting”… votes considered as some harvest workers can pick up. So a “Democrat” goes to a place and pick up the vote of someone else, for example in a nursing home. That enabled “Democrats” to capture most Congressional seats of Orange County in 2018 (a traditionally “Republican place). All this is done by volunteers right now, and many are complete fanatics at this point.

Vote harvesting should be allowed only if done by government officials following strict regulations, and under oath. Public observers should be required for all and any vote counting. Mail-in voting should not be allowed until debates are completed. Future elections at play! And voting machines should never be connected to the Internet!

What is ISEGORIA?

It is an abbreviation from the Greek, meaning same (iso) right to address an assembly (agora). Basically it means all and any citizen has a right to talk to any assembly (without being considered to be disrupting the peace).

What are modern “assemblies”? Any social networks and all and any media (how the transition from private to public is made is often easy to determine: any organization getting public help, or public shareholding, is public, not private; that means in particular “private” universities are actually public; also any organization viewed of “public utility”).

When Main Stream Media, what I call plutocratic media, blocks comments, it is violating isegoria. There should be a governmental organization, the department of isegoria, related to the TRUTH & RECONCILIATION BRANCH of government, but also under legislative and judicial advisory, in charge of receiving complaints and administrating punishment.

I have a few thousands blocked comments of mine, for the New York Times alone, to present as evidence of NYT (to be made) illegal bias…

What is PARRHESIA?

It is what the French call “Franc Parler”… The ability to speak… frankly, candidly. The Franks were known to say it as it was… because they feared nothing, except for the sky to fall on their heads as the old Gallic proverb has it… Foucault: “It consists in saying – without dissimulation or reserve or rhetorical ornaments that could codify it and hide it – the truth. The saying it all (“le tout dire”)  is at that moment: saying the truth without hiding anything, without hiding it in any way at all”.

Today I talked with my plumber. He is afraid that his wife, a nurse, would catch COVID. So I gave him the last good news from the RNA vaccines of Trump’s Operation Warp Speed… The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines. He took a secretive look and told me: “This has got to stay between us. Don’t tell anyone I said this. The Democrats could never have done it. We have these vaccines thanks to Trump.

The one on the left owes much to the one on the right. Diogenes was the ultimate representative of parrhesia: he spoke truth to power. When Alexander (“The Great”) asked him what he could do for him, Diogenes replied that he could stop casting a shadow (something which had both a literal, and metaphorical sense). prehistoric women, though had parrhesia, because it turns out that, from South America to Eurasia, prehistoric women were BIG GAME hunters… Thus knew how to use poisoned arrows. In other words, they packed heat, and could dress whichever way they liked, and talked as they wished.

So my plumber is afraid to say what he thinks, although he is big, strong and fully grown. Even if the truth is as simple and obvious as observing Trump promised nearly four billion dollars to Pfizer and Moderna for producing 50 million doses of a COVID vaccine by the end of the year 2020 (the help from Operation Warp Speed to Moderna was more than two billion dollars).

In other news, recently the punks who rule the streets nowadays the “caravans of criminals” (Oakland PD dixit) have got in the habit of burning people alive. Hey why not, who is going to inquire?

The NYT asks rhetorically, in its colossal stupidity: Who Would Firebomb a Homeless Encampment? California’s fire threat is colliding with its homelessness crisis.” Well, the answer is very simple: those the NYT has falsely claimed were discriminated against, and those who pull the strings, and should not be discouraged anymore to engage in their criminal activities, according to the NYT. I am not saying that discrimination does not exist, or that there is no systemic discrimination. Far from it. I am saying, instead, that it is the criminals who ask to defund the police: they have to profit most. And so really down and out people are burned alive, while criminals feel on top of the world.

Actually a dear friend of mine, who had lived in his truck for 45 years, has just been burned to death… inside his truck. More about this some other time (I’m a bit shocked). When a country is led by criminals, criminality prowls the streets…

This should not last though: Kamala Harris wants to become president, and she knows what she needs to do to get there. Being the way she is: pretty tough… with the weak and disposable…

Without isegoria and parrhesia, the powerful, the world’s wealthiest families, who won all the world’s media, mold minds as they wish. There is then no democracy, because minds molded by the most powerful have no power of their own. The Global Deep Plutocracy correctly viewed Trump as an existential threat. But Trump was just a vehicle for one idea: down with the GDP cult.

And Trump won, by the way. Asked today by a (selected, tame) reporter about joining the Paris (pseudo) Climate Accord (about all countries polluting as they wished, except Europe and US will have to give money) Joe Biden said: “This… like other things… WILL REQUIRE NEGOTIATIONS“. Joe has become a follower of Trump. Good. And Trump himself was a follower of the revolt against the GDP. And that will go on. Hopefully…

Trump’s Vaccine? If You Believe That, You Are A Terrorist, Says Plutocratic Media

November 16, 2020

The Guardian, a supposedly left newspaper wrote an article deploring money in science, and mentioning the COVID vaccine of the US company Pfizer and its German startup. Not a word about the US government (except implicitly). Guardian:”Vaccines can take years to be ready for use. But by turbocharging science we are on the brink of a breakthrough. Pfizer and its partner BioNTech say individuals in a large-scale trial experienced more than 90% fewer cases of symptomatic Covid-19 with their vaccine than those who received a placebo.

This is the broadest classification. Some RNA viruses actually make DNA during their replication process, etc…

The vaccine deploys bits of genetic code, rather than bits of the virus itself. This messenger ribonucleic acid, or mRNA, uses synthetic genetic material to cause the body to create a protein from the virus; the immune system then recognises the virus and learns to attack it. Imperial College’s Robin Shattock thinks his team’s mRNA-based vaccine will probably be so cheap and scalable that it could treat the world’s population. None of this would have happened if in 2005 two scientists, Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman, had not figured out a way of slipping the mRNA into cells without tripping the body’s defences. Both now work with BioNTech.

Not a word thanking US President Donald Trump for his Operation Warp Speed, which provided Pfizer for a reason to forge ahead at blistering speed (Pfizer took the decision to go for the RNA vaccine only in July). So I sent a comment. Here it is:

In July 2020, Pfizer got a $1.95 billion deal with the US government’s Operation Warp Speed, the multiagency effort to rush a vaccine to market. Pfizer will get this huge amount of money, to deliver 100 million doses of the vaccine. The arrangement is an advance-purchase agreement, meaning that the company won’t get paid until they deliver the vaccines. Pfizer did not accept federal funding to help develop or manufacture the vaccine, unlike front-runners Moderna and AstraZeneca.
People, worldwide, should be thankful that the US government proposed such a deal. the Pfizer RNA vaccine is apparently 90% efficient. FDA’s authorization will happen once 164 patients out of 44,000 in the Phase III trial, get COVID (they are above 100 right now). Then the US army is ready to execute distribution instantaneously.

The Guardian blocked the comment and sent me a message tantamount to saying I was a dangerous terrorist. The Guardian, a few years ago, got a 50 million dollars secret gift from Bill Gates…
