Edging Toward Re-Lock

10-days ago we canceled upcoming visitors to our home. Damn it – the data wins again.  This morning, another survey of where things are.

Then we’ll review a few headlines then straight into the ChartPack which promises an exciting week ahead.

    • Oh boy. Yeah, from about the 18 minute mark forward is something everyone here should see and hear. I downloaded the video for safe keeping.

      It really makes me wonder, George. You’re worried about a bug everyone, pretty much gets over and, while you have a plethora of rants on which MOST of us agree with you there’s an outright TREASONOUS invasion of our country happening right out in the open. The word “treason” doesn’t seem to carry the gravitas it did only a few short years ago does it? I certainly may be wrong but you seem to always let reports on this subject go by without any notice. Have you been “talked to”? Is the jab and the bug just the safest subject to tackle?

      For anyone that cares to spend a few seconds to read it, try and remember Aleksandr’s words –
      “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE (my emphasis – Bill) and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply DESERVED EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED AFTERWARD. (me again)
      Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

      I “back the blue” we have now but their ranks are becoming less and less uniform in philosophy. The sheriff in Alexandria, LA is a prime example. I hope these words don’t run through your heads in our own FEMA camps knowing we could have done something about it earlier. At the very least if you see something that ought NOT to be report it while there are still people out there like Tucker that will report it. Forget about your precious social status because it won’t matter in the very short future! If a stupid hick in the sticks can see this …

      • Stupid Hicks don’t quote Solzhenitsyn. And many well educated induhviduals never heard of him.

      • I remember hearing a lot about Aleksandr in the 60s with the Cold War in full gallop. He faded away over the following decades unless anybody here waded through his books and knows otherwise. As an avid Estate Sale rumager I rarely see any of his books, though, as the people who are now putting their treasures up for grabs are definitely at least 10 years older than me and should have been fully invested in the political trends of the time. I don’t even remember seeing them in the local antique stores! Perhaps his writings lost something in the translation (or did he write in English for himself?) or they were a bit dry for the average reader back then? I am in the market for his “The Gulag Archepelego” if I ever run across it. I’ll bet it would yield many more great quotes. If I could find a stack of them I’d send them to all the people currently incarcerated or beaten and released for ruffling the feathers of those in the Capitol Building back on January 6th!

  1. Yahoo says the Vax ‘Jab or Job choice’ is coming soon…

    The days of vaccine lotteries are waning. Here come the mandates.

    Getting a COVID-19 vaccine in summer 2021 could have given you a shot at a million dollars. Soon, not getting one could cost you your job.

    Health officials and politicians have tried to stay positive in recent months as vaccination rates plummet, turning to ad campaigns touting giveaways and lottery drawings. And then the ultra-contagious delta variant arrived.

    Now health officials say the nation’s lagging vaccine rates are creating a spiraling public health crisis as the unvaccinated rapidly get sick and the protective power of vaccines is given a “stress test.” A growing chorus of voices say people who resist vaccinations should face pressure — and consequences.

    • That article is disgusting! The author, who is twisting legalities and facts, implies it’s legal to coerce people to “voluntarily choose to take an EUA product without force or coercion”. Either he doesn’t know the law and the reality of how relatively useless the injections are, or he simply doesn’t care.

      Considering the rest of Yahoo’s bias, I’ll opt for the latter.

      And NO, the more they try to pressure me to get injected, the more I’ll push back. I’m no threat to society – I’ve already got natural immunity and I stay away from most people anyway. I also take prophylactic measures and know how to treat the disease. There’s no excuse for this sort of coercion, and it’s likely to turn into something really bad. Think Pol Pot or Mao.

      Unless it’s a newly released biowar agent, the variants should be less pathogenic if they’re more infective. That’s the general pattern for all pathogens.

        The vaccine is just as voluntary as the Income Tax is.
        The volunteering will be enforced just as is the taxation. Those who do the enforcing will be using the same array of weapons and personnel to ensure compliance of the volunteers…

      • We’re gonna have to be funneled.

        I anticipate all stores closed next lock-down. The big few will remain Large footprints like Walmart and Kroger – stores that are currently offering COVID shots. These are for the folks without cards and computers/phones. The rest will move online for control.

        Did you ever notice over time many symbols were created but it took until 1963 for the smiley face. Simple, yet overlooked for eons. Not one sad face anywhere in Egypt.

      • Ed.C, the income tax is non-existent for those with a sufficiently low income! There’s no lower bound for those who would mandate injections, other than age, and even that’s being pushed hard. It’s possible to live well and legally if you either live as a dependent or arrange your life to use very little that needs to involve money. I suspect that documentation of injections may well be insisted upon to participate in society for as long as that society remains. Ultimately, we’ll either find out that there’s a legitimate reason for injecting people or the society will fail. Between now and then, it’s likely to be a sad and tumultuous time.

        I suspect that some humans will survive to the other side, yet I have no idea what that “other side” will look like. We can’t keep creating a society that requires massive technological intervention just to survive. Even now, we’re at the far edge of technology that we can actually maintain. A serious drop in population will result in a contraction of advanced tech, whether we wish it or not.

    • It’s Yahoo. They’re the CNN of the Internet. I still go to their finance site to check up on my list of stocks but the rest is garbage.

      • “but the rest is garbage.”

        It’s all psychology.

        People only look at what they want to be. If a thought is incongruent to their worldview they’ll dismiss the thought and attack the source.

        Can we agree there are a bunch of preppers living in rural areas?

        Government is getting ready to force the rural preppers into submission. Some people will believe they are safe in the rural area and and think “this is a never going to happen”. That’s their worldview. Good for them. Again I tell you, government is getting ready to force the rural preppers into submission.

        MGT 433 Isolation & Quarantine for Rural Communities
        Course Description

        This 8.0-hour, instructor-led course is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine (I&Q) of a large portion of a local, rural population. This training will provide public- and private-sector emergency managers, community policy makers, public health, and public safety personnel with the general knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine of a large portion of a local, rural population. A rural community’s ability to collectively respond to an emergency requiring isolation and quarantine is not only essential to minimizing the negative impacts to the community at risk, but also to minimizing the long-term negative economic and health effects on the American public as a whole. Register for a class by selecting a class date from the Training Schedule, click on the Registration link above the course description to access a registration form for that class. Request a new class to be scheduled in your area by submitting a Request a Course form.

        I found the above link though a Yahoo article.

      • I wouldn’t get too worked up over this one. First a disclosure: I’ve per peripherally involved in local ham radio groups here in the very rural outback of Texas. Second, as such, I also have a very good handle on the national incident management system – which provides for essential command and control when the shit really hits the fan.

        463 is not a stand alone – it’s part of a spectrum of response to rural risks. Others include rail car accident responses (*hazmat) and thins like mass casualty events and so forth.

        Choice is for government to have no business in the woods, or have enough advance planning and knowledge to deal with things like a fertilizer plant blowing up or a pipeline going kah-blooey. Or, in a pandemic driven by biowar, reducing the spread to incity (or better) equivalents.

      • Thanks George and Steve for those references. The U.S. is a big place and, as much as I hate to admit it, bigger than Texas. I often wonder about the logistics of shutting down even a small, multi-state amount of our country for and extended period of time without outside forces being dropped in. Even during the Waco fiasco the area shut down took a good bit of time just to gear up for and holding it if they really ticked off enough civilians would have been an even bigger fiasco. We were all just mildly annoyed at what was happening then but now I’m beginning to believe more of the general population is well past “pissed off” and I really don’t think TPTB want to get anything started until we’re raiding Costcos and Sam’s Clubs like they are in South Africa. I have NO doubt they’ve game played this out in the bowels of the Pentagon for decades but like they say in the military “No plan ever survives first contact with the enemy”.

  2. The Fed can create unlimited amounts of money and debt. The Fed has a trading desk on Wall Street. The Fed is a corrupt criminal enterprise. Just based on that alone, what do you think is happening with the equity markets? They’re going to go up until the Fed stops buying. Interest rates are going to go up when the Fed stops buying. Unfortunately equities is one of the few places other than jobs where middle class people can still acquire some wealth.
    Oh and while we’re at it, the metals markets are totally manipulated. The price of the physical commodity is derived from the derivative. Corrupt.

    On the issue of masks. I’ve personally tested them for blood oxygen effects. Using a pulse oximeter. Climbing flights of stairs monitoring blood oxygen with and without different masks. Cloth – doesn’t seem to make much difference. The 95s, your blood oxygen does eventually drop by about 5% which also means your CO2 is probably up. It’s a two way street. The 100s I’ve not tested cause they shouldn’t be used during exercise and breathing becomes much harder (at least for me).
    Wishing everyone the best and good luck to G and all the Urban S and Peoplenomics subscribers dealing with our crazy new reality: American Oligarchs and such.

    • Good work Lou. I like science minded people that experiment with themselves and document their own health responses. I have done this for years while my wife has rolled her eyes. Releasing the information to others on this blog is helpful.

      Let me tell you my latest experiment. After years of developing arthritis in my hands, I went for cortisone shots in the right hand on Thursday. I asked the doctor my usual million questions like what are the side effects if any and does it matter that I have had both COVID vaccinations. He said COVID shots didn’t matter and side effects were rare and minimal.

      I have worn a Fitbit watch for 6 years and know my heart rate, sleep numbers, etc. to the last decimal point. On Thursday night, I started to get chills, then sweat, then chills and could feel my heart racing. Normal for me is about 62 during the day but was now over 80 before I went to bed. Normal blood pressure for me is 125/75. It was 155/92.

      My nighttime heart rate while sleeping can go as low as 44. Friday morning lowest night reading was 58. Last night was a little better but both heart rate and bp remain high and very irregular.

      So much for no side effects. Hope this helps someone else here. The good news is the pain in my right had is much reduced. Bad news is, I never realized how much my left hand hurt. ?

      BIC (Bob in Canada)

      • BIC, I understand exactly what you are saying as I also use a fitbit heart monitor and know my numbers and how they vary. The data is so usefull for the big picture view of your health. The xav forces your body to make a protein foreign to your body. No wonder your body is responding in a significant way and that response can be measured. What I would do is get my vitamin D blood level measured and supplement to go into the therapeutic range of 80 – 100 ng/dl. D balances out your immune system so that it is strong but does not over-react. In my view, the rna program is too specific, it’s like a genetic lottery having vastly different effects on different genomes of people. It’s a bit like playing God.

  3. The jabbed will be eating alternate proteins soon.

    If they’ll allow a jab, they’ll allow anything. “It’s just my body.” Might as well invest.

    Growing population. Depleting resources

    In 1954, the global population was 2.5 billion. By 2050, that number will have more than quadrupled to more than 10 billion. The strain on resources will be further exacerbated by the adoption of Western middle class eating habits in emerging markets. The growth in industrial farming needed to feed this demand will quickly drain our scarce resources, threaten our global ecosystem and cause numerous health risks for both humans and animals.

    World Population:
    7,859,892,043

      • Your question gets into the “what is is” realm.

        I mentioned the other day, assumptions. (assume = ass out of you and me. Ah,ah, ah…)

        Is water scare? The California government says so. Are they lying? If a person lies once they’ll lie about anything and can’t be trusted. What’s the California assumption, lie or truth?

        We look at Lake Mead. We’re told it’s low. Is water scarce? Compared to historic pictures Lake Mead does look low. But all low means is it’s not filled.

        Three days ago the Dubai experiment unleashed gallons of water. Lake Mead could be refilled in a week.

        We’ve got the Alaskan Pipeline. There’s plenty of fresh water in the arctic. Melt glaciers and send them down the tube. Fill the Grand Canyon with fresh, clean glacial water. Water can never be scare for California but we’re told it is.

    • Extending your logic: If you eat sugar and get cancer you get the bill, too, right?

      WRONG: Insurance is a risk distribution system not a guaranteed corporate profit source.

      • RIGHT: Insurance IS a guaranteed profit source or they would have been out of business long before my first encounter 1971. They do not lose even in national disaster and defend paying out regularly. Especially with clients whom cant afford litigation.

      • I had a software contract with an insurance company way back when, and I can assure you that they were in it for the money. They expected a payout ratio of 50% or less, and aggressively worked to limit it even further. I recall seeing one of their handbooks for adjusters that essentially said that if someone is rich or famous, make a show of paying the loss, and limit other losses in any way possible, including requiring litigation to actually pay. I was not terribly surprised. Previously, I’d run into this with losses from fire and questionable personal injury claims when in business.

        Everything’s a business model. It’s sad that so many are corrupt. Needless to say, I only insure what’s legally necessary since I have no confidence in ever receiving payment on a claim. Others have had better experiences.

    • Sounds a bit hyper-judgemental and illogical. What about those who cannot get the jab for medical reasons? They are just as important if not MORE so than anyone else INCLUDING those who want to exercise their free choice.

      Jim in MO

    • Hey Mike – if people GET the shot, they should have to paid the hospital bill for their massive side effects.

      There you go – fixed it for you!

      Btw, I do advocate people get the vaxx and the ‘boosters.’ It’s the Darwin factor that I love.

  4. FYI.

    Taking another step.

    3 items briefly, CRT, loss of freedoms, and Covid.

    “The Critical Race Theory IS Systemic Racism.”
    See .

    “The people of this world are not divided by class, race, color, gender, language, age or religion. The people of this world are divided into wise people and fools. It is the fools who allow themselves to be divided by class, race, color, gender, language, age or religion.”

    Remember 1/2 have an IQ below 100.

    In the U.S., the average IQ is about 97 and falling.

    And, “The American Descent into Madness:
    America went from the freest country in the world in December 2019 to a repressive and frightening place by July 2021. How did that happen?”, Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness, July 18, 2021.

    “No complex and sophisticated society is sustainable with a Maoist creed of cannibalizing citizens for thought crimes.”

    See .

    Citizenship:

    “How strange that the U.S. government is considering going door-to-door to bully the unvaccinated, even as it ignores the daily influx of thousands from Mexico and Latin America, without worrying whether they are carrying or vaccinated for COVID-19. Meanwhile, the progressive media shrilly warns that the new Delta Variant of the virus is exploding south of the border. Note how the administration applies standards to its own citizens that it does not apply to foreign nationals illegally entering the country.”

    Commissars:

    “That the Biden Administration has now joined with Silicon Valley to hunt down on social media any dissenters from this month’s official policy on vaccinations and mask-wearing was not so shocking as to be expected from a media that banned coverage of Hunter Biden’s laptop. In Cuban-fashion, millions of judge-jury-executioner online snitches, with government encouragement, will help root out incorrect thoughts at light speed.”

    Finally, facts about Covid, using Minnesota.

    It’s the same almost everywhere:

    Stupidity Reigns:

    “The other thing we really need is for a big campaign to educate the public about what adaptive immunity is and that what we are seeing isn’t inconsistent with vaccines working. People still haven’t been given a clear picture of how respiratory virus epidemics tend to work and what the effect of vaccines is. They don’t and can’t stop exposure. They can and do stop serious disease, with a lesser effectiveness among those with weakened immune systems.” See

    https://healthy-skeptic.com/2021/07/24/stupidity-reigns/

    Year-Over-Year Comparison, July 19:

    “And DD is doing some good work to graphically show that we are just seeing the same seasonality we saw last year, but at a lower level. I don’t know how many times I can keep saying that this virus isn’t going away, it will be here, we will adapt to it and it will be similar to flu or even less dangerous.” See charts

    https://healthy-skeptic.com/2021/07/24/year-over-year-comparison-july-19/

    And for actual data charts -that Ure won’t appreciate.

    “More to See What is Happening with Hospitalizations in Minnesota” and deaths and hospitalizations in Minnesota.

    Despite all the screaming, deaths are almost nil as is the rate of hospitalization. Unless the very old, even then its not like the initial outbreak.

    See

    https://healthy-skeptic.com/2021/07/19/more-to-see-what-is-happening-with-hospitalizations-in-minnesota/

    • Dr. Chris Martenson on his Peak Prosperity YT channel deals with the actual numbers as opposed to the percentages that are always sound much scarier than what they represent. How many times have you seen articles screaming about the “resurgence” but they never give you actual numbers in any of the categories of cases, hospitalizations FOR Covid, deaths FROM Covid, etc.?

      • Dr. Martenson showed via the actual released detail numbers from Great Britain (US hasn’t released detail numbers that can be analyzed) that the Death Rate for infected people with the Delta Variant was 1/10 of that from the original Variant.

        What we (and he) don’t know is how much of that “skew”, reduction of 90%, is caused by two major changes in those being infected: Many of those testing positives have HAD the vaccine and thus per reports those types have symptoms that are MUCH less; AND the population age group getting infected with the Delta Variant is younger – and even the last time around the younger you were the lower your death rate was BY A LOT!!

        What we can surmise from his reporting is that while the Delta Variant is most likely MORE transmissible it is no more dangerous than the original variant, and most likely LESS dangerous, possibly MUCH LESS dangerous.

        It would help if the US would release the detailed data (which they have) but it appears that the Government is on a SCARE CAMPAIGN for reasons that have nothing to do with Covid. (ie: economic collapse staring us in the face?? as George talks about and how they manipulated events in 2001-2002 for the same reason, so as to prevent an economic collapse)

  5. My lucky day…grocery shopping..dairy and frozen manager..( we worked together)
    Want some cottage cheese. We have some that’s going to be outdated and tossed. Sure I’ll take it how much penny on the dollar..
    A years supply.. lol lol…
    I go course will rinse the cream off of it then freeze dry it.

  6. Canada has an economy that is largely based on commodities, and the Canadian equivalent of the FED does everything it can to keep the Canada dollar low, relative to the US dollar, so that Canadian products will be more price-competitive.

    With that in mind, the Canadian Dollar has gone up from 0.70 to 0.80 US/CDN, and seems to be pushing higher.

    We may want to look at the CDN$ price as an index for how the US Dollar is doing in terms of USD real value; If the US Dollar buys less Canadian Commodities, then that could indicate a loss of USD purchasing power that the FED is unable to counteract with printing presses.

    Of course, it’s only a coincidence that the sudden price hike in the Canadian Dollar happened just after the latest printing of Stimulus Checks, right?

    Analysts in Canada think the higher CDN$ price will continue thru Fall 2021 at least, while Can Govt spokespeople predict it’s going back down to the usual 0.70 range any day now….

    • Compare the CDN$ with lumber futures.

      Lumber peaking at around $1800 meant the CDN$ was peaking at the same time and now lumber at roughly $600 is the likely reason the CDN$ has fallen.

      • Actually, the CDN$ has remained high, despite Canadian govt efforts to knock it back down.

  7. Many of you who are still in the workforce may be faced with the prospect of either taking the Covid vaccination, or going to the house. I’m not sure what being terminated for not taking the vaccine will do to unemployment benefits, but the full press is on.
    I regard mandatory vaccinations the same way I regard the lockdowns and the rent moratoriums- a gross overreach of government emergency authority. Most of the people I work with have been vaccinated, and everyone I have talked to had a significant reaction to the second injection. I do know a couple of people who had the J&J vaccination, and they had no issues, but that doesn’t mean it is better than the other choices. I have yet to hear anecdotal evidence of a vaccine fatality from anyone I have contact with. Nonetheless, the vaccine is experimental at best, and I don’t think anyone should be retaliated against for refusing it. If we send 60% of the nation’s witch doctors home for refusing it, that would cause a really severe public health issue. Most of the electronic chatter I hear now on the subject has become polarized bullying and brick-bat throwing. It is a sign of the times I guess.

    • Don’t forget the forms on The Solari Report website you can give to your employers and your schools to make them liable if you experience one of those adverse reactions to The Jab they require you to take and require the schools to notify the student’s parents if they go down this path. And please note the number count on the VAERS that is being played with like they play with the inflation and employment numbers. There is nothing you can trust in terms of information on this bug or the material things they’re forcing on us. The bad thing, as always, is you can’t protect people from themselves.
      https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/07/cdc-quietly-deletes-6000-covid-vaccine-deaths-cdc-website-total-one-day-caught-internet-sleuths-video/

      The VAERS website released its most recent weekly numbers on Saturday morning.
      There are now 11,405 reported deaths from the COVID vaccine in the United States according to the latest numbers.
      This is up from 11,140 total vaccine deaths last week.
      And this was up from 9,125 reported deaths from the COVID-19 vaccinations total from the previous week.

    • The J&J injection has the benefit of being only one instance, and for those with no previous exposure it will have no anemnestic response from the immune system. Nevertheless, the vector virus produces modified spike proteins like the others that can and will get everywhere in the body before hopefully being mopped up. In addition, there’s likely an immune response to the vector virus which represents an unnecessary challenge. Those who have already been exposed to any real SARS variant or spike protein may well have an anemnestic(enhanced secondary) response to the injection.

      All in, IMHO it’s probably the best of three bad choices. To quote Elon Musk, “The best part is no part”.

      • Really? Read my post below of someone who is REALLY sick after the J&J shot. And, there is no evidence that the spiked protein will be ‘mopped up’ by the body – that’s why myocarditis and Thrombo Cytopedia are common even after weeks and months after the vaxx.

        I am doing posts here only in hoping that maybe one brave soul will realize that the ‘government’ and medical community has totally lied to them.

        Btw, I disagree with George on his covid views, but George does seem to intuit that the vaxx is dangerous and toxic, and he has avoided taking it. None of the this should smell right to people, and George does have at least some scent awareness in this case.

      • “Vodka is a possible except, lol”

        At my tender age of 64 I may go back to the occasional cigar if I can get a permission chit from the wife.

    • Ok, I will give you my boots on the ground. I colleague who I work closely with (we work 100% remote), received the J&J vaccine two weeks ago. He is a healthy male – maybe in his early 40’s.

      After the vaxx, he could not get out of bed for 3 days. After two weeks, he is still sick and while he can work, he is very tired, lethargic, and obviously not feeling well.

      There you go – boots on the ground report. Now, I cannot give you more ‘data points’ only because my family and close friends are far too intelligent to be bullied into getting a toxic vaccine.

      • “he is very tired, ”

        Since I received the shots I have been dog tired. I wake up tired..and I got the shot months ago..

  8. A few weeks back I read three separate articles on wearing masks. All three were from, what you might consider, reliable sources. One was from John Hopkins. All three stated, briefly, that a certified mask worn properly does :significantly reduce transmission and infection rates. [They do help.] Last week I read two articles that stated, once again – briefly, that you are nothing more then a paramecium if you think a mask will help protect you. [They do nothing.]
    Who do you believe? Or., who do you ‘choose’ to believe ? The information freeway is loaded with land mines.., and your tried-n-true mine detector is now a hit, or miss proposition. Do you step here, believing that ‘fact’., or step over there and go with that ‘fact’ ? Which do you choose? What source of information do you trust to base your decision on? “Math doesn’t lie. People lie about the math.” We all need to choose wisely., and that is becoming harder and harder as the Dollar and Politics now have a firm grasp, or should I say “choke-hold”, on the data and flow of information.

    • I’m no fan of the covid stories. Yet, we took delivery on 100 N95 masks last week.
      Science (not counting inabilities to count PCR cycles) is pretty skookum stuff.
      Just find the best science – consider your own sociological and physiological risks and make the best measured decision you can is how we see it.
      In a city? Working with others? different (stronger) case to vax. Out here – 2 visitors in last 6 months? Not so much.

    • “three separate articles on wearing masks. All three were from, what you might consider, reliable sources. One was from John Hopkins. All three stated, briefly, that a certified mask worn properly does :significantly reduce transmission ”

      I have allergies… and have been wearing masks since before it became fashionable..
      I swear by them
