This "incompetence" angle is misdirection. Yes we have some incompetent people in government but that's not what lead to the epically wrong response to covid, that was caused by corruption. They use the incompetence angle to avoid accountability. Elected persons have qualified immunity which means you can't punish them no matter what they do while in office unless you can prove it was done intentionally and with a full understanding. This incompetence excuse keeps their qualified immunity in tact.

They will never and I mean NEVER EVER admit that the gene therapy drug being marketed as a vaccine was an actual failure that has caused more harm then good as that would be b ad for their buddies in the Pharmaceutical Industry which in turn means less kickbacks to the politicians and bureaucrats. They, the Federal government, also did not get something they were betting everything on during covid; the precedent that the Federal Government can mandate drugging of the population. If you don't believe that this is something many at the Federal level and the private sector want than you're not paying attention. ranted it would start out as being only during emergencies and only for "vaccines" but as we've already seen they just change the definition of what a vaccine is so they can use a drug that's not an actual vaccine. Once they get that precedent it's just a matter of time before the government expands on that. Once the Feds get that door open, even if just a tiny crack, they eventually push it further. What National government today wouldn't salivate at the ability to force it's citizens to take a government mandated drug(s)?

What is overlooked is each Country had a Pandemic Plan (based around one published on the WHO website - which disappeared one day) specifically for sudden appearance of an infectious SARS virus. How ‘incompetent’ did they have to be not to be able to read it? The plan itemised what to do and what not to do. Governments, in concert, did exactly the opposite of what not to do, and ignored what it was specified they should do. The plan specifically warned of serious long-term physical and mental health problems from spreading fear, economic shutdown, mass isolation and masks. Specifically vaccination - of any disease - is contraindicated during the active spread of a virus, as it cannot succeed in stopping spread and because it weakens the immune system for about 14 days, actually increases transmission. This required a choice be made either to follow the plan or not. It was not incompetence, error, panic, didn’t know what to do - it was quite deliberate. Why, is debatable, but the fact it was deliberate and malicious is not.

Yeah, the "experts" fucked up, but just give them a break and more of your money.

Next time, it won't be any different.

I refuse to entertain the notion that "things were fucked up." Things happened EXACTLY as planned - the isolation, muzzling, hospital murders, poison injections, enforced poverty - to soften us up and train us for the nightmare existence they've designed for us.

Lying about demonstrable immunological mechanisms (e.g. natural immunity) was not a mistake. People who parroted the narrative were mistaken but the seed for the narrative was not a mistake.

The only way in which they "fucked up" was betting it all on a virus that was not lethal enough to sell the pandemic to the public. Thus they had to spend 100's of millions to market the pandemic, to convince the public it was as bad as they said but with each mutation the virus got less lethal and eventually it became impossible to convince a large enough percent of the public. They still got some things done like a partial implementation of a physical checkpoint & tracking system (the passport) and Imagine they've got a Db of all the troublemakers, those who during a controlled crisis like this will pushback; refuse to bend the knew. The next time one of these planned crisis is executed they'll be ready to deal with the more difficult troublemakers. The one key thing they didn't get was the precedent that the government can mandate drugging of the populace during an emergency like this. That was the biggie but they bet it all on a virus that wasn't as lethal as was needed.

Thanks for pointing out this piece (of sht) from the Washington Post. I assure you, it's the only way I'd have been exposed to its garbage...But your critique was absolutely spot on!

As usual, the "experts" are the ones who decide what the "experts" did right and what the "experts" did wrong. Why would anyone listen to these admitted losers? I guess people who listen to the WAPo don't have the critical skills to realize just how ridiculous that is. And (surprise!) the same old, obvious conclusion: "If only we would have had more power and money we would have done so much better. We'll get it next time!" Losers. Plus, I love the way media these days declare that "experts say" but rarely name these incredibly insightful experts. We're just supposed to assume and believe that the media has some supernatural power to figure out who the real experts are, but no need for us to know.

They also never mention all the contrarian experts who were right ... and brave.

You mean experts who are contrarian to the narrative, not contrarian to the truth.

The 1956 book by Joost Meerloo titled THE RAPE OF THE MIND tells all about the events of the past three years, even without mentioning "the virus." I am about 3/4 of the way through this remarkable report, and am learning many new things (as well as confirming many of my current biases!).

Regarding health from a nutritional perspective, "the seasoned experts" have nothing to offer - they are just not very nutritious!

Agreed! Have you seen Bill Gates lately? Jimmy Dore and Joe Rogan express it well - who wants to take health advice from a man who appears to be transitioning himself? I don’t mean to make fun of anyone who is overweight or has health issues, but the man doesn’t look healthy enough to advise me from a nutritional or healthy perspective. The man isn’t even a doctor? He didn’t even finish college? Praying for the dude though…

I have thought a lot about what could happen should they push another fake emergency upon us. How much have people seen to keep them from complying with another round of ruthless idiotic mandates and fear porn?

What is as plain as day is the amount of power and influence that can be easily bought when the controllers run the government, the media, education as well as the banks that print up the cash necessary keep the Ponzi scam running. The day is coming when the too big to fail principle will come crashing down. Once enough of us, upon discovering just how badly we were duped by these lying crooks, will no longer trust them even if the Post tells us that we must. Until that time arrives all we can do is keep pointing out the real failures - the lies, the bullying, the apathy and the fear mongering - and remind ourselves that it’s far better to aspire for the truth than to allow these evil forces to prevail.

Well said, Jeff. I also think they can't have one Big Lie exposed. That might lead to many more Big Lies being exposed. It would set a dangerous precedent for them.

Like 9/11 or the AIDS debacle? Just look at those subjects that they try to keep the doors locked so no one can even question them. Vaccines have been a sacred cow as well until the mRNA got rushed upon the public and millions of us said no way.

I hope that wherever Tucker lands, it will be somewhere where he’s free to explore all these ticking time bombs. I think the deep state overlords are sweating bullets.

Whatever one's feelings regarding the work and ideas of Margaret Mead, I think very highly of this quote: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

My old fraternity brother friend Fletcher (a subscriber!) sent me this funny movie clip (from "Little Big Man") reminding me that I am a contrarian.

Skull and Bones and similar groups at ivy league schools are just rich kids clique. The real power is from the subset of those cliques who's name/ID is not publicly available. Skull & Bones is the magicians pretty assistance, the misdirection. I imagine that initially these groups were the power clubs but eventually when information sharing & technology reached a point it was no longer feasible to use a group known all over campus so they created a new group that is a subset where not all S&B members go. This way you let some into the S&B who are never going to be apart of the real power group and they can go on to be unknowing counter intelligence. These men really believe Skull & Bones is just a rich kids clique, nothing more.

Yea, Yea they said the exact same thing when they created the Patriot Act after 9-11. How did that work out?
