    He is very likely on to something. It seems to me HCQ is even more dangerous in this regard, because it was killed much sooner and much more forcefully. Both drugs are likely a very good addition to your medicine cabinet.

    He caught the lunatics in charge of the WEF/the left with their pants down. I’m pretty sure they’re shitting themselves right now not knowing how to react. Could be a glimmer of hope for those of us who are sane.

    I don’t think they’ll let him take Twitter. He'll have to make his own platform I'm sure.

    I had a soft spot for the guy before, even more so now.

    Without weaponized immigration, political correctness is less likely and without political correctness, weaponized immigration is less likely.

    I already know the childish arguments made in high school history books; they are designed to teach a very specific narrative to a population of below average intelligence.

    There is not even one example of demographic replacement being good for a nation. Not one.

    The examples of multiculturalism you gave are not multiculturalism, they are instances of a nation adopting a new dominant culture.
    Trade is not multiculturalism.
    Accepting new ideas into your nation is not multiculturalism.
    Science is not multiculturalism.

    If you understood Chinese history, you would know The Middle Kingdom has almost always looked inward; it has seen both periods of prosperity and poverty while looking inward.
    Japan built itself into one of the strongest nations in the world by rejecting Christianity, resisting attempts to have immigration forced on them and escaping multiculturalism.
    Neither the Confederacy, nor the United States was multicultural during that time period.
    You may not want to recognize it, but Nazi Germany was an incredibly strong nation and ethnic Germans were very happy with the way things were going prior to WWII.

I would say this is not unexpected, it might even be necessary. If the consequences of a body of rules are damaging for an increasing portion of the population, you need to exert violence on that portion of the population to stop it from revolting.


    I would also like to segue on my previous post with the following:

    " The idea that the liberal organisation of life (liberal in the classical economics, free trade and laissez-faire sense) is respectful of others and humanitarian in its inspiration is one of the most extraordinary lies and one of the biggest self-interpretation illusions a culture has ever produced.

    During its historical evolution, real (as opposed to theoretical) liberalism had no qualms trading slaves; it opposed in any way it could the establishment of any sort of government not based on wealth; in the XX century (and later) it guided imperialist armies in the ruthless exploitation of every corner of the world; it used its newspapers to foment chauvinism and war in 1914; after the brief interlude of the World Wars, it restarted its ideological battle (dressed as 'defence of the free world') to enact a raft of proxy wars, while at the same time posing as pacifist; and, finally, starting in the 70s, in its neo-liberal form, it has restarted its work to extinguish democracy and to systematically exploit anyone in a position of vulnerability."

    (translated from Andrea Zhok)

    Imho, the idea that replacing fiat money with the product of a complex and obscure algorithm would solve any of these issues seems to me naive at best, if not spectacularly misinformed.

    If wasn’t a metaphor, it was an example. The Irish were viewed as “highly dissimilar” at the time. You needed to discount referencing one of our most significant real experiences with mass immigration as “disingenuous” to protect unsupported assumptions, and then called my “coming” arguments weak,

Re-introducing one but not the other won't solve much; just look what happens in the Eurozone.

    I don't think I suggested reintroducing a gold standard, I just noticed by looking at that website how much just started going wrong after 1971, economically and socially. And I think society is a painting of the money being used. The one in use for the past 50 years incentives corruption, is centralized, inflationary and currencies are constantly at war with each other. It's money created by criminals, for criminals, and we are just getting the crumbs.
    Excellent point about capital controls. I don't really care what backs the money, but SOMETHING must back the money in order to enforce SOME "capital controls". If a trillion Cabbage Patch Dolls have to be stored away in a vault in order to create $trillion dollars, then many of the useless/endless wars, false flag operations, color revolutions, plandemics, block grants tied to mask mandates, etc....magically disappear. There's just no money for evil bullshit anymore.

Is it the intolerance to LGBTism? The convenient disappearance of some journalists? (How great would it have been for 2020, election- and covidiot-wise, if certain of OUR journalists had gotten "disappeared"?). The stinginess with approving protest permits? (Who cares1845485 about losing the right to riot downtown, if in exchange you could have an actual border and, bonus, get transgenderism banned from being taught in schools?). So, help me out, in a world where the perfect politician doesn't exist, I'm trying to figure out where Putin's strengths and weaknesses stack up so poorly against the ones of OUR leaders.
    Putin has turned his back on the communist experiment, and our leadership and it's corporate overlords are full-blown communist because it suits their agenda.

    THIS is the real reason Americans (and the world) are programmed to hate Putin.

    But there's more. As Nicholas has pointed out, Putin is a Russian orthodox leader and I now better understand what that means. He is ALL about building a civilizational state...turning very deliberately away from the secularized version of globalism that it was under with the soviet union and turning back to its cultural roots. There isn't a Russia without orthodoxy. Putin thinks in this way.

    He's not going to be in favor of women ministers...or recognizing LGBTQ rights, etc in the same way the west does. Putin insists on a public traditional morality....like Stalin.

    This is what the west means by regime change. The west wants to get rid of that traditional culture and install it's own progressive secularism. Ukraine is precisely the playbook for the West's plans for Russia. This puts Putin and 83% of Russians in a nothing to lose position...not gonna happen. Russia is all in now, so the gloves are off. Russia is already threatening to drop some truth bombs regarding our trips to the moon, 911, JFK assassination, etc...our global network of biolabs is just the start. Perhaps the East will force an American Glasnost; we sure need one.

    If you are of eastern orthodoxy, you experience the west as something that hates you because it doesn't understand you. Russia is a catholic civilization that doesn't have a papal. I did not know that.

    It is a real civilization conflict here, and it's not going away. Russia and China are strange bedfellows, but they understand each other. They are all about their civilizations. Same thing with India...a very very old civilization that goes back centuries before the bible. These nations aren't going to adopt the west's progressive secularism. This is a very traditional way of thinking, and we have lost this in the west.

    In my opinion, the east is going to destroy western progressive secularism for us. We just have to survive the struggle and then rebuild based on our traditions.

    Much of the above thinking comes from Dr. Joseph Farrell. Perhaps it's obvious to most of you; it wasn't to me.

    Putin is to Russia
    as
    Trump is to the USA.
    And, we are programmed to hate both because they are threats to globalist progressive secularism.

    Gen-X Techno Trump. An apostate of his social class, doing things that piss off all the right people. Probably not someone to put much hope in, but fun to watch nonetheless.
    Musk isn't doing this because he's all the sudden Mr Altruism. I'm not buying that. He's in partnership with the other major owners of Twitter stock: Vanguard and Blackrock. They are huge investors in Tesla.

    The insane response to Elon Musk's proposal to buy twitter at a significant premium proves that he isn't acquiring a private company; he's acquiring a global government censorship engine.

    Capitalists don't turn down $10 billion in free money. Only totalitarians would do that.

    What Musk and his partners (Blackrock and Vanguard) plan to do with "our" global government censorship engine...God only knows. Perhaps they are just taking it private to protect it from legal proceedings for crimes committed. Afterall, in the globalists eyes, Twitter (and Google, CNN, etc) are all part of the Globalist Government's infrastructure.

    He needs to stop taking tax money and pay back every cent Tesla has received from the government.

    I've been taking NAC for 2 years, it is amazing stuff. Somehow, it has cleared my respiratory system to the point where I can't remember breathing so easily day and night. Highly recommend.

    Amazon has stopped selling NAC, and the price has tripled amidst the discussions of banning over the counter sales. eBay is a good source still. I stocked up on it and ivermectin 18 months ago.

    I second this. He could probably solve our energy woes in this country if they put him in charge of that project too.
