The Covid Cult Has Been Slowly Killing America’s Economy And There’s Not Much Time Left

July 2, 2021

By Brandon Smith

Sometimes it’s important to step away from a problem in order to better understand it. I recently went on a trip across the Pacific Northwest to revisit some old stomping grounds and to take a break from the often disconcerting developments of today’s world, at least for a little while. We all need a vacation from the information war at times, and though I was happy for the rest, I am also happy to be back. After traveling on the road across four states I was able to gauge the general condition of the US in terms of the social and economic effects of the pandemic mandates and covid propaganda. I have some good news, and some bad news…

The good news is that the propaganda has not been all that effective in most places. The overall picture looks something like this:

In the majority of rural and semi-rural areas, as well as cities in red counties regardless of the state, the majority of people were NOT wearing masks and the bulk of businesses were not demanding that people wear them. The vaccine ads and propaganda were also at a minimum. This includes Washington State and Oregon, which have been notorious lately for their draconian restrictions. While Washington has technically lifted mandates (starting only a couple days ago), the pressure to vaccinate is ever present there. Oregon was the worst state I passed through in terms of business pressure and mob pressure, but even in most towns I visited the ratio of masked cultists to normal unmasked people was around 50/50.

Most of the businesses I entered said nothing to me about not wearing a mask. And, so far there doesn’t seem to be any major push for vaccine passports, though, I suspect this will come soon enough.

It was only in or near progressive run cities like Portland and Seattle that covid controls were clearly present and oppressive. Near Portland, I saw numerous people wearing their masks outside and even in their own cars. It was truly bizarre, considering that it is almost impossible to catch a virus outside in open air and in sunlight (which is scientifically proven to kill microorganisms). Clearly, the leftists in these places are operating within their own little bubbles of ignorance and collectivism. Needless to say, I kept my time in Oregon to a bare minimum.

The strangest aspect of the whole mess is that WA and OR have relatively high rates of “vaccination”. The people religiously wearing masks have no doubt been vaccinated by now, so, either they must not actually believe in the effectiveness of the vaccines, or, they are wearing their masks anyway as a tool for virtue signaling. Luckily, this insane mentality has not spread much beyond the boundaries of metropolitan areas.

After all, covid infections and fatality rates have been plunging. They were plunging in red states which struck down mandates well before vaccines were released to the public. Why continue the charade?

My trip confirmed some of my biggest suspicions – For one, it proved to me that the mainstream media vision of public submission to the covid mandates was in fact false. The only places where the mandates are obeyed are in or near major cities. I also noted that Indian Reservations were decidedly aggressive in mandate enforcement. These were actually the few places where people tried to demand I wear a mask (though it was usually some white lady working for minimum wage); and frankly I find it odd that Native American communities would be so quick to enforce federal government recommendations or trust federal medical analysis. It’s sad to say but they seem to be drinking the Kool-Aid by the gallons.

The internet is in many ways a fake world. Propagandists use manufactured consensus on the web to make it seem as if the majority of people are onboard with medical tyranny, but it is simply not so. From my observations, people are tired of the restrictions. They are fed up. Whenever I walked into a hotel or at most retailers the people at the front desk or the register would usually notice that I was not wearing a mask, and their eyes would light up and they would pull their mask down to talk to me. They were just happy to be acting like humans again.

I relate my experiences here because I realize that many in the liberty movement are apt to assume the worst possible scenarios for every event. I know because I do it myself on occasion. Three major LIES that some liberty activists believe when it comes to the pandemic are:

1) Most people have been conned into taking the experimental vaccines.

2) The majority of the US is submitting to the mandates.

3) Leftists are relocating in droves to swarm red states and red counties and they are bringing their covid politics with them. (For some reason conservatives are still clinging to fears of liberal relocation even though that mostly died out after the 2006 – 2008 housing crash, and today all the data shows that when leftists move, they move from their favorite city to the suburbs right outside their favorite city).

Sorry, but I can say with authority that none of these three looming threats is happening. It is nonsense. In fact, it’s the opposite in every case. The people who claim otherwise are frightened, and they are factually wrong. And I derive this position not just from my travels, but also from hundreds of thousands of my readers across the country that I deal with regularly. The propagandists want conservatives to live in fear just as much as they want leftists to live in fear, and they know which lies affect conservatives the most. Dispelling disinformation allows us to then deal with the real threats at hand.

Okay, now that the good news is out of the way, I have to get to the bad news: Economically, the US has been gutted by the government pandemic response, and I am certain now more than ever that there is not much time left to rectify the situation. At this point, fixing things might be impossible. Our only chance is to prepare to survive the fallout.

Here’s what I have noticed so far – Almost every place I have traveled through was desperate for working staff. The heat wave that hit the area this past week was brutal, but it should have been manageable. I’ve lived through worse heat waves and I can’t remember a time when half of the businesses shut down in an area because they couldn’t handle the customer volume. But this was the case in every single town. Finding access to services was incredibly difficult because most places were closed.

The problem was that the heat wave was incidental. The real obstacle was that many businesses have been without a full crew of employees for a year now and this is taking a toll on their operations. The heat wave gave them an excuse to close because they don’t have the people to stay open.

We can thank the federal government and multiple state governments for this situation, because right now it is actually MORE profitable for workers to stay at home and collect covid boosted unemployment than it is to actually work. This is not hurting the major retailers and corporate big box stores that much, but it is destroying small businesses that simply cannot raise wages high enough to compete with government juiced unemployment checks and stimulus.

McDonalds can hike their wages up to $15+ an hour and give new workers a $500 signing bonus, but the mom-and-pop restaurants down the street can’t. What this system is doing is quietly eliminating the small business sector, the same sector that employs around half of all Americans.

On top of this, corporations have been given an endless windfall of stimulus dollars while small businesses have received almost nothing. I have been saying for some time now that this is actually part of the plan; that the GOAL is to erase small businesses from the economy leaving only the corporate behemoths behind. The ongoing government rewards given to people for refusing to work only supports my theory.

And, even though the vaccination agenda in the US has mostly failed, do not expect that elites like Anthony Fauci are going to give up on their dreams of conquest. Fauci has recently asserted that there are now “two Americas”: The vaccinated and the unvaccinated. He must be blind because that is not what I see.

I see the people who blindly follow government demands in vaccination and the people who actually “listen to the science”. I see idiots vs. skeptics. I see cultism vs. logic. I see people who want to control others vs. people who just want to be free to live their lives as they see fit. I see agenda vs. truth. This is not about people being vaccinated, and it’s not about public health or saving lives. Rather, covid is a tool for subjugation of the public. That is all it is and that is all it ever will be.

If America is divided, it is because there are people who want to enslave, there are people who enjoy their enslavement, and, there are people who want nothing to do with enslavement.

Fauci is also notorious for being a terrible scientist, but he is a loyal technocrat. He has a habit of dismissing any science that does not support his preconceived conclusions. The science that shows that people who have already had covid are unlikely to be reinfected. In fact, there is no evidence that covid reinfection is a concern for the vast majority of people. Yet, Fauci does not count people who have had covid and have built up immunity as safe.

Fauci’s position is that if you are not vaccinated with the experimental mRNA cocktails, then you are a risk to others. Yet, if this is the case then that means the vaccines are useless. If unvaccinated people are a threat to vaccinated people, then what use are the vaccines in the first place?

The US Surgeon General (the same guy that originally claimed that Americans should not bother buying masks because the masks would be useless for them) is echoing Fauci’s propaganda, adding that the new “Delta Variant” will strike unvaccinated people the hardest.

There is still no evidence that the supposed “delta variant” is any more of a threat than the original iteration of covid, but this is not stopping governments from rolling out the fear campaign once again. With assertions that the delta variant may still infect vaccinated people, governments are suggesting that lockdowns, masks and social distancing stay in place for the foreseeable future. One has to ask that burning question: Why become a guinea pig for an untested mRNA vaccine when it is no guarantee of freedom, nor a guarantee of health safety?

Hell, why take an untested vaccine when the death rate of covid is so small it affects less than 0.26% of the population outside of nursing homes?

I also have to say that I called this outcome well in advance.

The globalists are becoming incredibly predictable as they scramble to salvage their flailing Reset agenda in the US. As I have noted for the past year, the covid restrictions are never meant to end. There will always be another “mutation” of covid, and so the mandates will be perpetual. They are meant to continue for all eternity, or at least until the entire population submits to government control of every micro-aspect of their daily lives.

That said, I don’t think the covid cult needs to keep mandates in place in the US for much longer, because if they can’t con the majority of the population into compliance, they will instead use the confusion of the pandemic to undermine the economy.

Consider this for a moment – The instant response of many businesses in the Northwest during the heat wave was to shut down or cut hours in half, rather than adapt and overcome. Would this have ever happened before the covid lockdowns? I think not. The go-to solution to any real or perceived crisis in America is now to close down and hide. The response is to reduce standards and give up, or, it is to print money and throw it at the system without any real strategy to use that stimulus effectively. The stimulus itself is doing more damage than covid ever could.

This is a poisonous philosophy that could destabilize the very foundations of the nation, and it is happening right in front of our eyes. I saw it on the road this past week. It is everywhere. Conservative states are working to counter these developments, and I hope it is not too late. The covid cult has been feeding like termites on the pillars of our economy for many months now and though the mandates are being rightfully abandoned the consequences of collapse are far reaching. We may not know the true extent of the damage for months to come.

    The author makes some excellent points. I disagree with one, however. “Fauci’s position is that if you are not vaccinated with the experimental mRNA cocktails, then you are a risk to others. Yet, if this is the case then that means the vaccines are useless. If unvaccinated people are a threat to vaccinated people, then what use are the vaccines in the first place?” I suspect that Fauci’s reply would be, “Unvaccinated people are a threat to other unvaccinated people, thereby increasing the death rate.” Still, with a survival rate of at least 95%, and myriads of adverse reactions and deaths being reported due to the “vaccines”, (they’re NOT vaccines), I’ll take that chance.

      His argument is that we are supposedly a threat to EVERYONE, not just other unvaccinated people. Unvaccinated people are willing to take the risk, considering the survival rate of covid is 99.74% (NOT 95%). And I would respond by pointing out that it’s not Fauci’s concern what risks we should or should not be taking.

      • buffalolips July 2, 2021 at 2:20 pm

        “… it’s not Fauci’s concern what risks we should or should not be taking.” Spot on Brandon! Nor any Governor, Mayor, or Sheriff.

      • Bob July 3, 2021 at 8:42 am

        In theory since no vaccine is 100% effective – everyone is a threat to everyone, but if that is the strategy – ban all swimming pools incase someone drowns, wall off the beach and make sure there can never be another shark attack again, definitely all cars need to go – thousands die every year on the roads, and everytime there is a thunder storm hide under the bed for 24 hours to avoid lightening strikes.

    • Henry Ford July 6, 2021 at 6:30 pm

      Nope. Fauci says the vaccinated should continue to mask up. The vaccine is not to stop covid.

  • David Homer July 2, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Oklahoma is pretty much what you describe. Sort of a mixed bag of mandate controls, and businesses are struggling to get people to work. Some products are unavailable or in short supply. Even Walmart has empty shelves for some things. A lot of advertising for people to get the jab. That tells me they haven’t met their goal yet. I don’t mean the 100% pie in the sky goal. I mean the realistic one they only talk about amongst themselves.

    • Bob July 3, 2021 at 8:45 am

      well they want 70% because then the unvaxed are a minority and they know next time around they can basically mandate it.

      it’s not about this one – it’s about market penetration

      it’s no different to the cellphone and internet – today you can’t login to an email account without an SMS 2FA – banking without a smart phone almost impossible now. 10 years ago that was not the case, bcse the penetration was too low.

  • Dere Kittredge July 2, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Good analysis,
    Here in rural Wisconsin everything is doing fine for the most part. No one adheres to any types of mandates and businesses don’t adhere either. However, there is definitely a worker shortage. In this rural area most people are live and let live, with only a small case of leftist tv watchers. These people are marginalized and ignored. Even at the main big plant in my area they have stopped following the covid guidelines even though they are technically in place for the company nationwide. People seem to just try to ignore the reality that covid was a thing and are back to their boating and four wheeling and drinking mentality.

    • Pete Papageorge July 3, 2021 at 6:11 am

      Our factory in rural Wisconsin just announced that after July 12, no more masks regardless if your are vaccinated or not. We have over 1,200 employees.

      That was great news!

      Now I do not have to push this issue with corporate HR that I was planning in August with.

  • JustOneGuy July 2, 2021 at 10:49 am

    FWIW, the issue regarding the Native Reservations is a matter of history. From the original Smallpox devastation wrought in the 1800’s up through and including the 1918 Soabish Flu, the Native American population has learned – the hard way – that non-endemic pathogen exposure is not worth the risk.
    Given what was conjured into existence by the Fed under Trump and then tripled down by Biden, it is my considered opinion that – point in fact – the proverbial tipping point – has been passed and we are now in the early stages of final and total dissolution of Civilization in the West.
    The current inflation we are witnessing will in all likelyhood progress to successively higher levels, eventuatinf as hyperinflation sometime in the next several months…followed shortly thereafter by catastrophic deflationary collapse.
    Per ZH today, the total Fed injected funds into the broader system since 2008 exceeds 43 Trillion dollars which has succeeded in producing only less than 4 Trillion of real GDP in the US economy…this is THE recipe for the soon to come final disaster looming over America today.
    Civilizations come, civilizations go…

      Yes, and if we were dealing with something like smallpox then I could see their logic, but covid is not even close, so their paranoia is unwarranted. Also why would they take the federal government’s word on anything? Have they not yet learned their lesson?

      • JustOneGuy July 2, 2021 at 1:19 pm

        Truly valid points you make, each and every.
        Given Native Americans long history of broken promises from the ‘Great White Chief’ of the East were I they I wouldn’t believe doodle-squat.
        That said, the oral traditions are what most tribal members look to FIRST before even considering other data…and thier history is stark relative to the Spanish Flu (which my damned tablet utterly misspelled above!) entire tribes simply vanishing in the Northwest up to and – especially – including Alaska.
        Hence, theier oral tradition effectively trumps all other sources of input in practical terms…which is simple prudence in the eyes of some whilst being an overreaction in the opinions of others.
        Many people(s) are awakening to a new paradigm, that “Life is WHOLLY pass or fail” with DEAD obviously being in the latter category. Methinks – in the rather near future even – that very many will (hopefully) catch on to that particular notion.
        Incidentally Brandon, when – proximally – will your expose of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, et al be forthcoming? I am VERY much anticipating seeing your presentation Brother…and hearing your analysis thereof, especially.

          It’s hard to say because making a movie is a tedious process of exact editing and structure. I don’t want to rush out a substandard product. I do think that the process will go much faster now that I have beginning and the end pieced together.

      • Karen F July 3, 2021 at 9:13 am

        And yet, the history of small pox is also grossly distorted by the ruling elite. The truth is, the cities that mandated small pox inoculation had the worst small pox outbreaks, whereas, Leicester had the lowest infection and death rate through quarantining the SICK and disinfecting their homes. People who were inoculated died in greater numbers and suffered more severe disease. This doesn’t even include the injuries and deaths suffered from the inoculation alone. To make things worse, what they used to make the inoculation had nothing to do with small pox, but was likely a syphilis infection that had been transferred to the cow’s utters. The description of how they came up with the inoculation was pretty horrific, as were some of the deaths after inoculation. I highly recommend “Dissolving Illusions” by Suzanne Humphries for an enlightening look at the history of vaccination and elite lies. It’ll blow your beliefs about small pox, polio, and vaccines in general out of the water.

        I guess my point is, even if we were talking small pox, it wouldn’t be a different story, because the Elite’s story has always been the same: Cause panic and take away liberty in the name of public health and safety so that the Elite grab power and make obscene amounts of money.

        Same playbook, different century.

      • Steve Deak July 3, 2021 at 9:49 am

        In Klickitat county the natives saw the fraud and shut down the reservation almost immediately. I figure they knew they could make more money on Covid kickbacks than on gambling and fireworks sales, and why not let the white dogs pay for it.

  • Gauntlet33 July 2, 2021 at 12:47 pm

    Another great article Brandon. It’s a wonder that silver prices are still hovering around $26/oz (“spot price”, of course) given all the money being thrown around…

  • Gauntlet33 July 2, 2021 at 12:56 pm

    @JOG, although I’m strongly against US “stimmies”, I don’t see hyperinflation (which I define as 50% inflation per month) in the next few months, but I do give it about a 30% chance by 2024.

    @ Brandon, thanks for pointing out false myth #3…I get so tired of seeing that one thrown around on ZH.

    • JustOneGuy July 2, 2021 at 1:25 pm

      Howdy G33,
      I believe Brandon hits it most closely in his response below. Eventually people are going to realize that it’s all just ‘Monopoly Money’ and thereafter a Crisis in Confidence in the Greenback will rapidly metasticize.
      I recall what Hemingway said in response to being asked how he went bankrupt

    Price suppression of the paper market will continue, but eventually the physical market will completely decouple. With the amount of inflation taking place it is only a matter of time before you will be unable to find a piece of physical silver for sale anywhere for market price.

  • Northern Gal July 2, 2021 at 2:09 pm

    All good points as usual

    I do however know multiple people who have been looking for work.
    one with decades of administrative oil field experience and a CDL.
    He has been unable to so much as land an interview or get a call back for any driving job.
    The much younger crowd aren’t being hired because managers are holding out for people with “experience”. This includes fast food joints and grocery stores.

    So the we are desperate for workers…. in some cases is complete BS.
    There are workers willing and available.

      Brandon Smith July 2, 2021 at 2:32 pm

      No, I’m afraid that none of your assumptions make sense. First, my observations were on the service industry, not resource production jobs. The anecdotal story of your friend aside, industries like oil and lumber are booming and there is no hiring difficulty in those fields. He may not have been able to get a job because competition in that area is high. As for the service sector, many unemployed Americans make FAR MORE money sitting at home than they do working 9-5 because of government covid incentives. THIS IS FACT. It is not up for debate. No manager is “holding out” for people with “more experience” in service. You need zero experience and zero skills to work in service, that’s why they traditionally start out making minimum wage. If what you say is true, then there would not be hundreds of signs in every town across America begging people to apply and offering to pay them bonuses just for signing on. The workers or NOT willing and they are NOT available. Welcome to the reality of covid stimulus.

    I was in Dallas and its suburbs last week. Fewer were wearing masks than California but more than I thought . I am looking to relocate near more independent minded people but was disappointed – plus freeways there are insane. The really crazy part is that I read that a busload of Dallas students were bussed to a vaccination center for their “jabs” that were not parent improved. Hard to find a safe place.

      • Steve P Scott July 3, 2021 at 9:58 am

        Agreed, we have a house in a Dallas suburb (Allen), and a cabin/homestead an hour north. At the subdivision there’s plenty of fear with mask wearers outside and concern about if I’m still pondering the jab.

        Most all the folks I run into around Sherman/Denison are 180 degrees from those an hour south. There’s durn near zero chance of belief in masks, jabs, and related bs in my rural area.

        We keep both for now as my wife loves both places and it’s close to her work. If it was up to me the suburb place would be booted in a heartbeat.

    • Karen F July 3, 2021 at 9:26 am

      The freeways in Dallas are insane! However, each exit has a little separate u turn to get back onto the other side of the highway and try again because it’s guaranteed you will miss the one you want the first time.

  • DC Miami July 2, 2021 at 3:50 pm

    Since the narrative fell apart based on the contradictory messages when vaccines first came out (“you still need the mask even if you were vaccinated,” then suddenly you don’t), the change in most big box stores meant effectively that the mask requirement was gone. That prompted a mini research project on my part.

    I began walking through strip centers that house mostly small business. I had been complaining that these days, before walking into a place, you now have to stop and read a rule book on the front window, which infuriated me.

    My project consisted of walking through these outdoor plazas to see which places had “rule books” still on their front window after the changeover to voluntary masking. My policy is to never patronize such a business.

    Nothing is more insulting than seeing a business basically regarding me, someone they should welcome as valued, as some filthy threat they must tolerate, grudgingly and only if I follow their dictums, in order for their business to survive. If a business sends that signal to me, then it’s “fuck them.”

    I’ve actually thought of peering my head through the door, and telling them exactly that, and saying that until they remove their rule book, they have no chance of selling me anything.

    The ratio is about 50/50 on places that have a rule book where I am.

    Has anyone else tracked this in their location?

    • Kender July 3, 2021 at 11:12 pm

      Actually, what I discovered is here in Oregon cashiers at all the stores have apparently been told not to accept cash unless the customer puts on a muzzle. (Knowing this I still go in with no mask & express contempt for their obedience by then walking out with whatever I wanted to purchase. They have not cared to stop me) .
      Now it appear the state is becoming more lax (no more face diaper mandate as you walk in), but I am under no illusions about their plans.

    • bhk4usa July 5, 2021 at 6:23 am

      My general response to businesses that still enforce any level of CCP-Virus restrictions is to express sympathy. I commiserate with the business owners that they have determined that their own business facilities are ‘unsafe for human occupancy’. I also point out that requiring ‘social distancing’, wearing of ‘protective’ face coverings, etc will not provide them with liability protection from their ‘negligence’ in allowing the public into an environment that they themselves have determined to be ‘unsafe’. In order to protect themselves from liability they need to at a minimum provide full bio-hazard protections for everyone that they allow or invite to enter. Otherwise their only option would be not allow anyone to enter their facilities at all. I then explain that I can not do business with them until they have declared their facilities to be safe again for human occupancy.

    • Ryan Brooks July 6, 2021 at 10:18 pm

      Well, I’m more near Miami proper and it’s a somewhat oppressive and depressing environment. It’s about 60/40 of mask wearers to “non” and it just seems like a lot of ignorant people who are afraid “bad things will happen” if they break free of the programming. The only place that gave me a hard time about masks, though, was the post office. They didn’t like it when I began video recording and called them sheep. I was told the “postal police” were coming. Lol. God help us all.

  • Gauntlet33 July 2, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    Just in time for the upcoming July 9th “Cyber Polygon” event, we have this article where CA is begging for more electric power. Will the power go off on the west coast in the coming weeks/months?
    Also, I should point out that Christian Westbrook aka the “Ice Age Farmer” said that reservoirs are at historic lows due to CA apparently intentionally dumping all that water into the ocean. This seems to fit the agenda/prediction of “no water and no electricity”.

        @Karen F,

        Yes, when I first heard a month and half ago that the Colorado River Water Authority had told EVERYONE from the Imperial Valley, CA to West Texas that they would receive a Zero allocation of irrigation water this year I felt a shiver go down my spine; that crescent is responsible for almost 2/3 of all fresh vegetable and nut production in the US.

            Currently, too many dollars are chasing an increasingly scarce supply of goods, all too soon that will exponential ESPECIALLY if the Fed continues adding fuel to the fire via conjuring ‘Wealth’ out of thin air.
            Recently – at ZH – a worthy examined every instance of historical hyperinflation and arrived at a curious conclusion. Hyperinflation ONLY occurs if both a very large amount of currency is in circulation AND the ‘Velocity of Money’ in the system begins to steadily accelerate.
            Ever increasing money chasing an ever scarcer supply of goods certainly characterizes the second criteria, obviously.
            Thanks for you kind words my friend, be well, be SAFE and be Blessed.

            @JOG, that’s interesting what you pointed out about the necessary factors for hyperinflation: (1) too much money, and (2) velocity. Looks like the deep state is full steam ahead on #1 and is cutting food supplies, so #2 will be hitting soon. I’m hoping we all have more time to prepare, but the fact that they’re cutting off water as you posted here and Christian (aka IAF) posted on his site, means that hyperinflation could be sooner than I had expected…

    Last March, as all the flu scam propaganda really got goin,’ my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and was treated right thru the entire scam last summer by a very talented group of women surgeons and oncologists to a very successful outcome.

    When they were planning her treatment protocol, the team leader, an extremely experienced surgical oncologist, recommended a mastectomy, followed by a 5-year regimen of tamoxifen.

    Now, i remembered that an old friend of mine had his mom go thru this back in the early 80’s and was in the ORIGINAL clinical trials for tamoxifen, which lasted well over 20 years. The use of tamoxifen saved this woman’s life, so i figured i’d ask the guy about it. This guy’s no dummy and he’s more successful than me, just not a lot of medical experience.

    i asked him why they only are gonna give my wife tamoxifen for 5 years, when his mom took it for over 20 years.

    Turns out the stuff kept her her breast cancer under control, but after 10 YEARS the side effects started showing up: heart disease (strokes), kidney disease, and endometrial cancer – she got all of those diseases.

    The catch was none of these side effects even started to show up for the FIRST 10 YEARS!

    So the clinical response to this problem, while not foregoing full FDA approval, was to put a 5 -year limit on the warning label.

    The docs in the trials together with the FDA and drug co execs figured that would be safe yet still let everybody make some money on the deal.

    Ostensibly, that would also let the patients get the benefits for a while, without risking any nasty clinical outcomes or, even worse, class action suits by all those pink ribbon ladies from the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

    The kicker is that after this very smart guy tells me all this stuff, he then tells me about how he and the wife are getting their mRNA vaccinations ASAP, and when am i gonna get mine.

    i said: “after what you just told me about your own mother and the 20 years of side effects she went thru, you and your wife are gonna get an experimental genetic compound that has only been out 9 MONTHS?

    “Yep, this is different.”

    Just multiply that by about 200 million, and you gotta good idea what’s comin’ down the pike in this country in acoupla years

    Best as i’ve been able to figure, about 60% of the entire US population has gotten an mRNA sca… er. excuse me, successfully tested vaccine.

    There usta be publicly traded funeral homes, but i can’t find ’em anymore.

    • DC Miami July 2, 2021 at 8:54 pm

      Atanoi, please view the article I am linking. I have had countless people use these successfully, and all were stage 4 and every one of those who did this not only eliminated their cancer, but had it never return. This even includes someone whose pet dog was at death’s door, and fully recovered.

      Have your wife get these and eat 5-7 of them daily due that she’s already been treated, and her cancer will never return.

      Trust me, they WORK!! Make sure they are the bitter ones, as they contain the cancer fighting compound.

      It’s around 56% if you believe the official federal numbers, which I do not. I suspect that there will be many autoimmune disorders that come from the vaccine side effects, but I worry most of all about mass infertility. I think this is the main goal of the mRNA vaccines.

      • atanoi July 2, 2021 at 10:25 pm

        i agree with you about the mass infertility part, but i believe these genetic treatments had an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) as a specific goal to give everybody plausible deniability (they’ve already got full legal immunity by Federal law) so that when a significant number of these poor suckers start dropping dead from various causes in a few short years, including autoimmune diseases for sure, they can say: “sorry about that, but now we fixed it, so try this stuff.” You gotta pick off the stragglers if you wanna hit those Georgia Guidestone numbers.

        i think of one of they key reasons (besides getting rid of Trump) they had for dumping all over quinine (which has been used in one form or another since the British Raj in India in the late 1800’s) and Ivermectin
        was to make sure they met one of the key legal concepts behind an EUA which is that there are NO viable alternative treatments for the disease in question.

        i maintain the the flu was just the bait – the mRNA shots are the real herd-culling bioweapon.

          I’m doubtful on that. I think infertility is the primary goal, along with the vaccine passports. If millions of people start dying from complications that can only ever be linked to the vaccines there will be nowhere for the globalists to hide. They would be lynched in the streets. But, infertility they can blame on any number of things, including covid. Also, this was planned WAY before Trump ever got into office. Fauci’s funding for the Wuhan lab started during the Obama administration. Trump was simply incidental.

            That would require a serious number of doctors to be in on the conspiracy, which isn’t going to work. This is why the whole “covid is fake” narrative eventually fell apart – It would require hundreds of thousands of co-conspirators around the world, which essentially destroys the conspiracy because someone is going to talk. Easier to just make an actual virus that kills people and keep your circle of conspirators small. The elites only went wrong in that they overestimated their creation. They thought it was going to kill 65 million people in the first year; but nature had other plans.

          • atanoi July 2, 2021 at 11:00 pm

            there’s already been a serious number of greedy docs and hospital whores (excuse me, “administrators”) that are already in on this conspiracy courtesy of a $38,000 extra check they get from Medicare when they intubate an old-timer for “a confirmed covid diagnosis” and they “unfortunately” have a 95% death rate for these intubated patients – hey, grandma was gonna die anyway – we did all we could for the poor old lady.

            A handful of cases of misdiagnosis does not make a virus “fake”, nor does it mean that the majority of doctors have nefarious motives to falsely represent the pandemic. Sorry, but these assertions have been debunked over and over again. Covid is real. Period. The globalists are not so stupid as to overcomplicate the conspiracy. The real conspiracy WAS the engineering and release of the covid virus, then claiming it was a “naturally occurring” disease. Trying to add complexity that is not there is a bad habit of people in the liberty movement that can’t seem to accept that the globalists are not always planning a hundred moves ahead. Sometimes what you see is exactly what is actually there.

            I think that the initial virus “killing rate” was 3%, as they predicted during event 201, but as Luc Montagnier said, nature doesn’t like artificial modifications of a virus and remove it quickly with mutations after a few months or weeks.

            I agree. I think the initial death rate in China was high, but something happened to change the virus. It adapted and became less deadly as it spread. This is something the globalists did not expect, obviously.

  • atanoi July 2, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Thank you, DC, i’ve been very aware of laetrile since i was a little boy and my mom was head nurse at a cancer hospice. i’m 70 now, and nothing’s changed – it’s always been considered the natural medicine version of chemotherapy, which it probably is.

    Trouble is, in over 60 years of watching this stuff first-hand, i’ve never seen ANY chemotherapy, natural or otherwise, ever do anything for a cancer patient other than prolong or increase his agony, while lining the pockets of some doctor and some drug company. Yeah, everybody hears about a few miracle saves every now and then, but you hear about that in sports, too, just don’t bet any money on it.

    One of the real problems with ALL chemotherapies is that oncologists are one of the few, if not the only, group of doctors who directly make a profit from the drugs they prescribe to their patients. Obviously, all doctors get percs, trips, and other indirect benefits from their drug prescriptions courtesy of all the drug company freebies, but, as far as i know, oncologists are the ONLY specialty that gets a direct cut of the profits from whatever drugs they prescribe. At least, they’re the only LEGAL direct sellers of drugs that make money on the deal – we’ll leave Pablo Escovar and el Chapo Guzman out of this – they’re more in the Bristol Meyers, Pfizer, or Moderna -sized class of direct drug sellers.

    In my wife’s case, i didn’t mind her getting tamoxifen too much for 3 reasons:

    1. She had very early stage 1 cancer and she’s extremely physically fit, so that alone increases her survival odds considerably more than the 65-75% of American women who are either very overweight or morbidly obese – look up the BMI stats, they’ll blow your mind!

    2. The oncologist was prescribing an off-patent generic version of tamoxifen, so the monetary incentive was pretty low, and,

    3. I had the benefit of direct, unfiltered info from the original clinical trials of the drug she was being prescribed. This was just pure luck, but my Dad always said it’s better to be lucky than smart.

    The most telling fact against ALL of this stuff is that the majority of oncologists, when they get cancer, forego both chemo and radiation, and just get themselves into hospice as soon as they can, to avoid any unnecessary pain and suffering.

  • Vader July 3, 2021 at 5:43 am

    Another spot-on analysis; you’re making a serious habit of that lately. If you have the time though, you might extend your eyewitness evaluation of America to a few more free states. For instance, save for Democrat run and ultra-corrupt Dade County, Florida is for the most part having none of Fauci’s self-enriching control freak nonsense. Even with a comparatively large senior population, the masked cult there is now by far in the minority. Also, Happy Birthday.

      And even Dade is changing. You have all the people from Cuba, Venezualen, and Haiti, that came to escape the oppression I’m their countries. They know Biden is a wolf in Sheep’s clothing. Dade.County actually was red last.year.
      What I did like from Brandons take are the facts about the people moving from other states and bluing it up. We like the way Florida is right now with DeSantis, but if the vote went only 0.3% the other way, we would have had a vastly different reaction, that is if Gollim wasn’t snorting coke.

    I live in a rural area 25 minutes outside a medium-sized city in the upper midwest. I had to drive into the city the other day and saw a different world — solitary people wearing masks while outside waiting at bus stops. Presumable they need them to board, but are they afraid the bus will not actually stop if the mask is not already on? Contrast this with our local hayseed grocery, where for the past 15 months I’ve never seen anyone bat an eye if they see an unmasked face — and one sees them all the time.

    I pulled out my most recent pre-WuFlu vaccination records the other day. Notably, in the section for listing chicken pox, the corresponding column contains the word “immune.”

  • Karen F July 3, 2021 at 8:56 am

    Brandon, thank you for writing about your observations of your journey around the country. It was so timely and helpful for me, since I’m in the process of putting my NJ house on the market and getting the heck out of Dodge. I plan on driving out west and planting myself somewhere out there, but have been worried about comments that New Yorkers and Californians are going out there (they ruin everything they touch!). Suggestions on where to explore are always welcome.

    I’d like to provide some clarification to a statement you wrote concerning the Delta variant. Although we don’t have any real data about how deadly it is compared to the original strain (which I think would be impossible because the death numbers were so manipulated), the Delta strain is, in fact, more deadly for some. Vaccinated people have an 8x’s greater risk of dying when they catch COVID than unvaccinated people (initial numbers showed a 115% increase, but additional statistics recently released show an even greater risk).

    The brain washed people out there who wear masks in their car will also run to get their booster and flu shot when that comes out, which will probably kill them, so you won’t have to deal with them for very much longer. Expect a wave of death this Fall, which will be blamed on the genetically pure (like us) instead of squarely where it belongs – on the Death Shot.

    If enough people get vaccinated, surely that will allow the economy to recover quickly. Data from countries with high rates of vaccination is very hopeful.

    The virus mutates the more, the more people are infected. Reduce the number of infections, and there will be few or no new variants. Again, the more people get vaccinated, the faster the problem gets resolved.

    • Karen F July 3, 2021 at 10:13 am

      At first I thought you were being sarcastic, but I think you are actually being serious. I hope you take this the way it’s intended – to inform. There are several scientific errors in this thought process, but the primary ones are break through cases, Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) and the nature of viral mutations and vaccination.

      Concerning breakthrough cases the numbers in Britain (roughly) only show a decrease in infection rate by half (if they are even being recorded correctly). About 35,000 unvaxxed came positive and 17,000 vaxxed were positive. The point is, how can you possibly end transmission of a virus when a vaccine only stops infection maybe 1/2 of the time?

      Concerning the nature of viral changes introducing variants, when you vaccinate during a “pandemic” it leads to more rapid viral changes, because the virus is circulating. Infact, as Dr. Malone points out, we are seeing evidence that the mass vaccination programs around the world have increased the development of variants. Data from countries with high rates of vaccination is not very hopeful, despite what you might have heard. When India used Ivermectin they had very little deaths, but when they started pushing vaccines on the populace, the areas highly vaccinated experienced very high death tolls. The dreaded Delta variant is not more deadly than the original, in fact, studies have shown it to be less deadly… unless you’ve had the vaccine, then you have a greater risk of dying from COVID. Every country that introduced a mass vaccination campaign experienced a sharp increase in deaths, not just from vaccine deaths, but also from COVID deaths. All cause mortality rates have gone up where vaccines were pushed.

      The risk of ADE is a more serious one, and I think we are witnessing some of this now, although it takes several months to develop and could very well become a serious issue in the Fall. Current numbers coming out of Britain indicate that the risk of death for the vaccinated is 8x’s higher when they catch the Delta strain. I’m betting this is due to ADE – vaccination against one strain enables a strain that is slightly different to more easily infect cells and tends to kill the host.

      It’s a good idea to look at the science to help form your opinions, and to turn off Fauci and his ilk. Lies ooze uncontrollably from his lips.

      • Ron R July 4, 2021 at 7:59 pm

        Yeah, this Garcia person really has the hots for the vaccine, commenting before on other posts about how we all ought to get the experimental gene therapy cocktail. Just rewind the tape and he/she/it keeps spitting out the same old tripe. And how about this gem: “The virus mutates the more, the more people are infected.” That sentence would be funny if so many people didn’t think the same way. That person has no medical background or acumen. A simple online study of the nature of viruses and epidemiology would be enough to kill that generalization, but hey, you can’t talk sense into most people these days.

    In central nc where I work today 4th of July marked ‘independence from wearing your mask at work’ day…….so long as you were fully vaccinated. So.. it was a tough day being as a small minority of us had to continue to wear masks in order to stay employed. Which made us really stand out. Which prompted immediate comments from the horrified vaccinated non-mask wearers. I deflected a ‘shame on you’ comment almost immediately to start my work day. ?

    Also.. The virtue signaling vaccinated people don’t really come at me with the logic of you’re putting them at risk by not being vaccinated… That’s not what they’re saying. The reasons I hear most often that the vaccinated people want us non-vaccinated people to get the shots is because “we must reach herd immunity”… And if you aren’t participating in the shots you’re keeping the country from reaching herd immunity.… Anyway i’m not really hearing that they think we are putting them in danger individually by not being vaccinated… They believe their vaccinations will work and protect them… But for some strange reason they’re horrified that herd immunity won’t be reached which makes them lash out at non-vaxxed people. How do you respond to those circular arguments Brandon?… The whole herd immunity thing is the club they use around here. I’ve had a couple of distant friends say the same thing to me.

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith July 4, 2021 at 4:35 pm

      Herd immunity is reached through antibodies to the virus, and one can have those without vaccination. In fact, there’s still no hard proof that the mRNA vaccines provide immunity through antibodies, nor any proof that they create herd immunity. Infection rates and deaths were dropping off in non-vaccinated areas of the country before the vaccine rollout started.

      My suggestion? You obviously live in a very leftist and cultish place and you should consider quitting your horrible job and relocating to the nearest red county or state. This type of idiocy does not exist in a large part of the country, and there is no reasoning with zealots. Or, you can just tell these psychos to go f%ck themselves. Who cares what they think anyway?

    • Karen F July 4, 2021 at 5:54 pm

      I like this one: “I can’t get the vaccine because I’m in the control group. If all of us in the control group got the vaccine we wouldn’t be able to determine the true safety of the vaccine, so I’m doing my part to make the vaccine safer. You’re welcome.”

      Howdy sister, most of those morons couldn’t define “herd immunity” if they tried. They just parrot the crap they hear on their favorite communist TV or online news source. Just ask them. Ask them if they know what herd immunity is. Ask them if they know how herd immunity is calculated, which happens to be different from one pathogen to another. Ask them if they know what the herd immunity level is for SARS CoV-2. Ask them if they know what percentage of Americans have received “full vaccination” and then ask them how they can tell we’ve not hit “herd immunity” level when they know neither the vaccination rate nor the herd immunity level. If they say: “70%!!” (which is thrown around all the time by various government and “public health” officials), ask them where they got that number. Then ask them why so many people are pushing for EVERYONE to get the juice if all we need is to hit herd immunity. All you will hear is a friggin’ bunch of crickets because NONE of them will have any idea what you are talking about.
      Ask them if they know what the IFR (infection fatality rate, NOT the CFR – case fatality rate) is for SARS CoV-2. Ask them if they know this: So far, through this day today, more people have DIED from these “vaccines” (Just in America, just from covid-19 “vaccines”) over the past SIX MONTHS than ALL THE COMBINED 70+ OTHER VACCINES from the past THIRTY YEARS, based on DATA FROM THE CDC ITSELF, which is, in all likelihood, underestimating the vax-related deaths by possibly as much as one magnitude, and this does not count debilitating injuries and other effects. THEN ask them why you should take an experimental medication when even the government is saying that it will NOT prevent you from getting, or spreading, that virus.
      They will not like your questions, they will not try to reason with you. They only want compliance and people like us who reject the lies and rebel against the propaganda are a burning testimony to them that they were too cowardly, submissive, and/or ignorant to stand up for truth and right. But these are only the first-fruits of the propaganda and social pressure that is yet to come. Buckle up, double down, and run swiftly with the footmen so that you can contend with the chariots when the time comes.

      I live in the North East. There is no fighting where you stand in the North East. There are too few people who actually understand the concept of liberty. They think freedom means they can smoke pot without being arrested. They are intellectual slaves to this tyrannical mindset.

      I’ll give you an example: removal of religious exemptions in NJ (2019). Parents came in droves daily for 2 weeks and it was going to pass, but at the last minute it failed. Do you know why? Because the tyrants made a concession that private religious schools would be exempt from the elimination of religious exemptions. That flipped a couple black legislators who were going to vote for it because “wait a minute, that’s discrimination because a lot of my black constituents can’t afford private school, so that’s racist!” It didn’t fail because vaccine mandates are morally wrong and government overreach. No it failed because of political correctness.

      Immediately following the failure of this bill, a bill was passed that took away the medical freedom of healthcare workers and mandated them to take the yearly flu shot. The very same REPUBLICAN committee members, who howled about the bill that would remove religious freedom for students, voted in committee (where it actually matters because there are only 9 people voting and if a bad bill dies in committee it doesn’t go to the floor) to pass the removal of medical and religious freedom for healthcare workers. Why? Because that bill got absolutely no media attention and the parents, who I marched next to in Trenton to protect their parental rights, didn’t give a damn. There was only one REPUBLICAN who voted against that bill in committee. And when it got to the Senate floor those same REPUBLICAN legislators, who voted for the bill in committee, voted against the bill on bill on the floor (where it didn’t matter because it was obviously going to pass if it got to the floor), so they could say they voted against vaccine mandates.

      So, you tell me, how are you going to fight where you stand, when even your “allies” will betray you? I hope in the very near future, God willing, to move to a place where people value liberty and are willing to fight to protect it.

      We moved from NJ to the Cumberland Plateau in TN after buying and reading Joel Skousen’s “Strategic Relocation.” It is very thorough. It takes time to consider all the areas he reviews and rates. We decided 7 years ago and moved 5 years ago. A lot of sand has escaped the hourglass since then for anyone considering making a move. If I can be of any help,

        @Stan, my wife had actually checked out that same book from the library. I only flipped through and glanced at it as my main concerns were states with (1) strong gun rights, and (2) plenty of rainfall for well water, both of which pointed me to the Southeast US.

    Hi Brandon, great article as usual! When thinking about the vaccines, I still have some questions I do not have a full answer to.

    1. If the goal is depopulation, why are mainly the compliant and western people vaccinated? (For some reason I always felt like elites preferred citizens of developed countries over non developed parts of the world, e.g. Africa)

    2. Many of my friends who are regarded “high(er) on the social ladder” seem to take the vaccine without any hesitation. Wouldn’t the elites want their (freely brainwashed) offspring instead of freedom loving offspring?

    3. If we are being forced into taking a vaccin (seems the case in my country) would you prefer a vector vaccin (e.g. Johnson) over a mRNA vaccin?

    Thank you for your work!

    • Karen F July 5, 2021 at 8:28 am

      @ Nickname I’m so glad you asked!
      They’ve been using vaccines in 1st and 3rd world countries for years to sterilize people – don’t count the 3rd world out of this equation, and don’t think it’s only the 3rd world they want to depopulate (who do you think “you’ll own nothing and be happy” propaganda is aimed at, Tanzania?). Prior to the Death Shot they’ve had great success sterilizing men and women with the HPV shot – shown to be the case in various studies.

      The psychopaths can’t kill off millions of people all at once and still have a functional society. Their strategy is controlled demolition. However, people tend to repopulate, hence the sterilization of the majority of survivors.

      Several months ago Bill Gates’ GAVI (Vaccine Alliance) began using Africa as a testing ground for their new tracking system, “Mastercard Wellness Pass”, which ties vaccines to control of one’s money. See what GAVI has to say about this: and his ilk implemented a vaccine tracking system

      Africa is not out of the equation for population control, they are ground zero to testing out additional control measures that will make its way to the 1st world when functional. They’ve always planned on killing us too – we aren’t special to them just because we live in the 1st world. I suspect their current focus on industrialized countries is twofold: kill a slew of people, terrorize the population to make them suggestible and malleable to their control measures, and get a functional control system up and running for whomever survives. We are in the beginning of this folks; these psychopaths rush nothing. Keep in mind that the greatest dangers of the Death Shots are usually slow to develop: autoimmune disease, cancer, prion disease, ADE… which no one will associate with the Death Shot because it’s so far removed in time from when they got the shot – plausible deniability.

      As for your brainwashed friends, if the majority of them live long enough to enable the psychopath’s success in implementing a control system that the non-brainwashed must participate in to survive, then it doesn’t matter if your friends die several years down the road from prion disease – they’ve served their purpose. As for offspring, if this shot is a transmissible vaccine (which there is reason to suspect it is) and there is damage being done to the fertility of those not injected but exposed to the injected (which there is reason to suspect this could be the case) – it won’t matter if you are freedom loving because you may not be able to have kids either. Look into the menstrual changes and miscarriages happening in non-vaxxed women/girls who are around the vaxxed.

      Please hear this: ALL of the Death Shots cause INJURY AND DEATH!

      Firstly, they all have the same adverse event profile because it is the spike protein that causes damage, including COVID disease. Studies revealed (even before they developed and released this version of SARS) that the spike protein without the virus attached causes lung damage, vascular damage, heart damage, neurological damage and inflammation. If anyone’s interested these studies I will list links.

      Which brings me to my second point. Both the mRNA and the Adenovirus vector shots have the same end goal, but use different methods to get there: genetic material is delivered into human cells to instruct the ribosomes in those cells to create spike proteins. So what genius decided that the best way to protect someone from catching COVID is inject something that forces the cells to produce the protein that causes the damage seen in COVID? A psychopath paid to develop a bioweapon, that’s who.

      Additionally, both mRNA and adenovirus vector (delivers transgenes, which is a single strand DNA) have the potential for those genetic instructions to integrate into the host DNA through reverse transcriptase and transfection – which means there is potential to produce spike proteins in perpetuity and to pass these genetic instructions on to their progeny. Two articles that explain this potential well are:
      The only vaccines that do not use this gene therapy technology are the inactivated virus vaccines, like those produced by the Russians and the Chinese. The risk for ADE with these vaccines is exceptionally high, so expect lots of people who got these to die from ADE alone (as witnessed in India).

      Most importantly, they cannot force you to take a vaccine unless they tie you down and forcibly inject it into your arm. Do not be a victim to this lie that they have control over you and can force anything on you. You may have to make difficult choices and suffer imposed consequences if you do not comply, but it will be impossible for them to impose those consequences if enough people refused to buy the lie that they have any measure of control over us and just tell them to fuck off.

      Inform yourself, or you will be a victim to their lies!

      1) To be clear, I never said the goal of the vaccines was direct “depopulation”, meaning killing a bunch of people. At least, not right away. I do think that part of the goal is to cause autoimmune responses and infertility. This would cause depopulation indirectly over time. People in numerous 2nd and 3rd world countries are being forced into vaccination right now. It’s not just the West. But, the globalists are hyperfocused on the west because we are the people that are most likely to rebel, and most likely to overthrow them. They need medical tyranny here most of all.

      2) Like I said, I don’t think most of these people will die from the vaccines. Some might, but I think infertility is the primary goal.

      3) I would avoid the mRNA cocktails at all costs, and I would fight anyone trying to force me to take an injection. If you don’t fight now against this mess, then there is no chance you will fight later when they institute more controls.

  • Chris July 5, 2021 at 7:32 am

    Brandon, now you say that the virus is not fake because of the large conspiracy it would take and someone would talk along the way. I do agree with that assessment. On the same token though, if you say that you believe the long-term goal of the vaccine is sterilization, wouldn’t that take a similarly large and impossible conspiracy? Wouldn’t all kinds of researchers in labs over the years in studying mRNA vaccines have discovered this? Someone would have to be aware of it for it to be known and be a goal of the globalists. Please help me qualify this.

      Brandon Smith July 5, 2021 at 2:54 pm

      I’ve ALWAYS said that covid is a real virus (a bioweapon made in a lab). Always. Also, many virologists have ALREADY warned that the mRNA vaccines could cause infertility. The media is ignoring this, of course, but it is much harder to “fake” a virus than it is to deflect blame for an epidemic of infertility. The globalists only need to control the vaccine manufacturing through Big Pharma and control the media (which they do). If covid was fake they would have to control EVERYONE; every virologist and every researcher in the world (and by the way, not one virologist has ever claimed that covid is not real). The elites can simply blame Covid-19 itself for the infertility. In fact, they are already preemptively doing it:

      It seems to me that the agenda is obvious. Look at how aggressively the media is attacking anyone that mentions the fertility question on the vaccines? It takes FAR Less people to achieve the infertility conspiracy than it does to conjure a fake virus conspiracy.

      • Chris B July 5, 2021 at 3:25 pm


        Forgive my poor wording with the word “now” to make it seem like you said something else previously. That was not my intent.
        Now I agree with what you replied but that really didn’t clear up the issue. If the globalists have a goal of sterilization via vaccine, then that means they know ahead of time that the vaccines will cause it. By extension, if they are aware of this, then others along the process must be as well such as researchers, drug company executives, FDA, etc. We can accept Big Pharma is controlled by globalists, sure. But with mRNA vaccines being researched for so long and by so many, wouldn’t someone along the way have piped up on these disturbing side effects like sterilization more than some virologists who warn that they “could” cause infertility?
        I’d like to accept this as their plan but the apparent logical inconsistency when compared with the virus itself not being fake has me at a stumbling block.

          The question was already thoroughly answered in my previous post. No, actually very few people need to be aware of an infertility threat in the new mRNA vaccines. The FDA isn’t approving the vaccines “officially”, which means they aren’t testing them for long term side-effects. Researchers won’t have a clue for a couple of years at least. Drug company execs are fully onboard. Look up the roster of Pfizer and you’ll see a list of happy globalists. Also, who has researched these specific vaccines for “years”? Only the pharma companies that made them. Your problem is that you are seeing “inconsistencies” where there are none. As noted, numerous virologists including one of the former VPs of Pfizer have warned of the infertility threat associated with these SPECIFIC vaccines. NO ONE in this area of study has said that covid is “fake”. There’s simply no comparison. In fact, I’m finding the attempt forced and a little bizarre. If your argument is that you cannot have one conspiracy without the other, then this is not logical. An infertility agenda is FAR easier to accomplish than faking an entire pandemic. Sorry, but this is reality.

  • Greyman_75 July 5, 2021 at 11:08 am

    As usual, another great article/observation. Keep doing what you do, it is greatly appreciated. I just want to add my observations from outside a major city.

    I live in a suburb outside of Washington DC. I retired from the military so I frequent the military bases in the area. Four weeks ago at the military grocery store, it was about 25% unmasked. Several of the patrons had a smug look on their face that weren’t wearing the mask. Like they were better than everyone else. Three weeks ago, it was about 50% unmasked. Two weeks ago, it was about 60% unmasked. Last week, it was 75% unmasked. This week, it was 25% unmasked. I suspect the “Delta” variant caused the change. Folks going to Costco were about the same percentage. I saw a buddy and his wife that I worked with several years ago with a mask on. I assumed since he had a mask on that he didn’t get the jab. I asked him about not taking the jab. He replied that he took the jab and wore the mask in crowded situations to “feel safer”. His wife asked if I took the jab. “Nope and not planning on it. She replied “Good luck with that”. I told her that I trust my immune system more than I trust the Government. Both have a good head on their shoulders and are open minded. Not sure if news corrupted them or what happened to their critical thinking skills.

    I still see people wearing a mask while they are driving alone. I went to an Asian grocery store last Saturday. My wife went in the store while I stayed in the car. A very busy store, I probably saw 150-200 people go in and out. I didn’t see one person without a mask on.
    Take care, stay safe and use common sense.

      Yes, there are going to be some places that are saturated with leftist idiots, and Washington DC is one of them. I can only give comfort by pointing out that there are many areas of the country where the majority of people refuse to comply with the masks and the experimental vaccines. It might not seem like it if you live near a major city in a blue state (or district), but it is true.

    • Kyle Crossman July 6, 2021 at 5:15 pm

      In the 10 or so red states I now find myself in frequently, few people are wearing masks. In fact, I had not realized anyone was still wearing masks until I left the state I was living in a few months ago. I saw a mask here or there. Then I headed to DC and the closer I got, the more masks I saw. I even saw a sign saying “by order of the governor of West Virginia” and could barely contain my laughter. I haven’t seen anything like that in a long time. At the outer edge of the metro area, I still think mask wearing was in the minority but it was close to half. Inside the loop is obviously a different and sad story.

  • Greg B July 5, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Despite what the Branch Covidiots in the big cities and colleges claim things have been getting back to normal here in Texas for quite some time now. In my area you didn’t see a whole lot of people wearing masks even before Abbott reopened the state and lifted the mask mandate. At a local festival in early March thousands of people show up and barely a mask in sight. Our county never enforced any Covid measures to begin with and a lot of people ignored them anyway, myself included. Even in the smaller cities like Abilene hardly anyone wears one anymore. So I’m inclined to agree that red cities, counties and states returning to normal while their blue counterparts are still wasting away in lockdowns.

    And Covid cult is a good name for these weirdos. Have you seen the videos of these idiots treating going to get the jab like they’re going to a royal wedding or something, complete with ball gowns and everything. And don’t even get me started on the music videos. Maybe it is good that the vaccine causes infertility because these idiots shouldn’t be be breeding.

    Also as far as the Indians go, do you think there’s any chance the reservations will join or aid an insurgency against the feds and globalists post-collapse?

  • Nicolas Bonnal July 6, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Brandon, why don’t you talk about the decline of energy and natural ressources which explain, according to many commentators, the comedy of reset? The world is starving: what do you think of these explanation?

    • Stan Sylvester July 6, 2021 at 10:50 am

      It’s because the reset doesn’t include you. They are well aware of the fact that there isn’t enough to go around. I’ve wondered lately about the Georgia Guidestones goal of 500,000. China can cover that easily. If the vaxx is transmissable to the unvaxxed, that takes care of the U.S. population. Now they can send Chinese in to the country. They’ll be easy to control. They can rent the empty homes. Coming from where they’ll be coming from, I’m sure they’ll own nothing but will indeed be happy. Just thinkin’.

      Brandon Smith July 6, 2021 at 2:15 pm

      Because there is no decline of natural resources right now. That is a globalist narrative created to justify their obsession with control. There is artificial scarcity being created by the elites through inflation and mismanagement. Get rid of the elites and you have solved the problem.

    Last year I was driving on major highways that, coincidentally, run through Indian reservations and the highways were shut at the borders of the reservation, causing me to go hundreds of miles out of my way. So yes, the Indians are drinking the Kool-Aid as fast as they can, no questions asked, unfortunately. Apparently this is legal? Aren’t highways federally and/or state funded, even if they run through a reservation? I have not been in this part of the country this year, so I do not know if this is still the case. Can anyone give any legal advice on this?

  • Serge July 7, 2021 at 8:53 am

    Global elites surely have a set of surprises in store for us for this fall and for 2022.
    I will not be surprised if – as James Howard Kunstler evokes -, Biden is dismissed by the 25th? .. And after, K. Harris president, a return of DJT or martial law (and at the same time, acceleration of the collapse of the US economy, 50 years after Nixon’s decision …?!).
    I believe the Biden / Harris regime will be very, very short-lived (the initial goal of the globalists?). Ordo Ab Chaos?

    And don’t forget, this friday, 07/09, WEF and Cyber Polygone:

    This second half of 2021 and the coming months of 2022 promise to be decisive for the future.
