    Those "more intelligent" people probably realized they needed us plebes to do the heavy lifting.

    The current idiots in charge appear to think we are no longer needed, and/or replaceable.

    Or maybe they have so much money and power now they're just laughing at us while they burn it all down and watch the shit show from their cozy beach front mansions?

    Not always, I suspect it's just grown over time. There was probably a fair amount of this bullshit in the 1800s, and it expanded in the 1900s. Smedley Butler was talking about this kinda crap he encountered in his career. The system has gotten very comfortable by now and doesn't really work hard to hide itself. We're also a lot more able to disseminate information without its interference.

    China was also quite successful at halting opium -- until the British intervented militarily.

    In pursuit of his goal of ridding Canton of all opium, Lin Zexu in 1839 ordered all foreigners in the city to surrender their stores of opium within three days; and in addition, he ordered them to sign a pledge that they would never again traffic in the drug.

    Violation of this pledge was to be punishable by death. In a gesture intended to sweeten his ultimatum, Commissioner Lin offered a token reward of five and a half pounds of Chinese tea for every opium chest turned over by the foreign merchants.

    When the foreigners ignored the commissioner’s deadline, Lin threatened to execute two opium merchants. In response, the British reluctantly surrendered more than 1,000 chests (about 75 tons) of opium—which was only around two percent or so of all the opium that was currently stockpiled in Canton’s warehouses.

    Dissatisfied with the British response, Lin Zexu ratcheted up the pressure. He blockaded a key British trading firm, confining its 350 foreign occupants to the factory compound.

    The siege lasted for six weeks, ending only when British merchants agreed to turn over 20,000 additional chests of opium, weighing approximately 1,300 tons—more than two and a half million pounds.

    In a classic display of imperial potency, Commissioner Lin’s ceremonial destruction of the British opium was carried out in the presence of several high Chinese court officials and foreign dignitaries.

    The opium was first dumped into three massive open trenches, each lined with large quantities of salt and lime, where it was then covered with two feet of water. The mixture was then stirred thoroughly, and the resulting slurry was flushed into a nearby creek, where the currents eventually washed it out to sea. Repeating the process several times, it took 500 workers 22 days to complete the destruction of the British opium.
    The US government's casual acceptance of opioid proliferation and usage is one of the more ahistorical and inexplicable aspects of our little situation -- until you think in terms of foreign policy.

    The Anglo elite weren't just smarter, they also had some sense that the people they ruled over were their people, and not just a resource to be milked to death and replaced with an endless supply of foreigners.

    What songs do you have in mind?

    Eve of Destruction- Barry Mcguire?

    What's Goin On- Marvin Gaye?

    I Fought the Law and the Law Won- Bobby Fuller Four?

    Seems to me what we are experiencing now is not nearly as dramatic as the 60s. Political assassinations, J Edgar Hoover, Civil Right marches and protests, Vietnam war protests, draft dodgers, SDS, Black Power, Hippies, drug culture and free love. At least back then we still had mental hospitals to house the crazy, neurotic, and paranoid element. Now they all have keyboards to share their thoughts and opinions regardless of their position on the spectrum.

    But what do I, a Boomer, know? The 60s were fun, but still being alive to watch this shit show is fun too.

    I probably posted this 7 years ago, but the first ten minutes of this is worth a listen. This was my 3rd daughter's high school graduation ceremony at the Pine Knob Music Theatre.

    Those old patriotic songs have always resonated with me. I thought the band's performance of them was outstanding!

    This has been a major point of thought for me. I have speculated for a while that those pulling the strings must be counting on AI and automation to fulfill the societal roles that are currently fulfilled by those with an average IQ of around 100. Once the mean IQ of society drops below about 85, it becomes dysfunctional and unable to sustain itself. The current planned demographic shifts we're seeing are absolutely leading to a significant IQ drop.

    Climate Paranoia

    This is a masterpiece of an article describing the ascendancy of the Western Global Warming Propaganda Regime.

    And to tie it back to the opening graphics of manipulated temperatures, here’s where it slides into creepy territory. As unbelievable as it may sound, Rothschild acquired the world’s leading provider of weather graphics for TV, web, and mobile:

    Listen very closely to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild himself explaining the [quite uncharacteristically left-field] decision to acquire the most powerful weather providers: [Video in article]

    Note he specifically invokes “climate change” and says that it’s important to “use technology to [make people aware]” of the changes. In short, he’s really signaling his dynasty’s purchase of the most important weather providing system in the world for the sole purpose of engineering a narrative; namely, that climate change is real and is coming for us. That they specifically acquired ‘interactive weather graphics and data services’ for web/TV, etc., is of key relevance and could likely explain the marked global shift in temperature graphics presentations.

    It’s all part of the organized effort to drum up fear and create a false narrative of “increasingly violent, intemperate weather” to further their agenda. That’s not to even mention the myriad other suspicious circumstances, like the fact that America’s largest energy grid provider, California’s PG&E, was presided over by a board of director from Rothschild during the worst of the wildfire sprees several years ago: [screen caps in article]

    Suspicions likewise revolved around those wildfires at the time. Many people suspected that PG&E was directly responsible, or involved somehow. They were found legally culpable for two of them: [screen caps in article]

    But some believe it wasn’t simple accident to be chalked up to negligence and an ‘aging electrical infrastructure’, but rather deliberate sabotage to push the climate hoax. In fact, many cases during the recent spate of global wildfire breakouts were found to be arson, leaving one to assume many if not most of them may could have been artificially started.

    And not just of the man-with-tincan-of-gasoline variety either; we’ve all seen the bizarre cloud patterns and inexplicable simultaneity of fire epicenters as seen from space over Canada. You know, the same ones that the fraudulent CIA cutout LeadStories debunked as normal because “the satellite photos were taken 10 minutes apart and only appear instant on video”—as if wildfires starting over a massive 150,000km2 area even 10 minutes apart is any less suspicious. Of course, they also said it was normal for lightning to ignite fires over such a broad expanse, completely ignoring the lack of thunder clouds in the satellite photos.

    It’s clear that global finance syndicate which lords over us has doubled down on the climate push as the final vector of control. In many ways, it’s the ultimate vector; unlike disease and pandemics, which are transitory and provide only a small window to usurp sovereign governmental structures, the never-ending hoax of climate change offers a limitless gift that keeps on giving, which can be milked for as long as it takes, since it’s understood as generational in nature.

    Furthermore, unlike pandemics which are ultimately reliant on our own health, which we can use to dispel ginned up fear, climate can be commandeered as an all-pervasive and invisible ‘specter’, that’s somewhere all around us and is changing for the worse whether we feel directly affected by it or not. In short: in contrast to health, it’s not very falsifiable for us proles. And given that—as established earlier—they control the mechanisms by which this specter is filtered, we’re left forever at the mercy of their claims.
    Read the whole thing.

    May this fucker burn in hell for all of eternity. The cunt not only lied about HCQ, he also said that taking it together with antibiotics like Azithromycin was more dangerous.
