Our Betters Miss Again

Bill Gates said Friday that the risks of severe disease from Covid-19 have “dramatically reduced” but another pandemic is all but certain.

Speaking to CNBC’s Hadley Gamble at Germany’s annual Munich Security Conference, Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said that a potential new pandemic would likely stem from a different pathogen to that of the coronavirus family.

CNBC

One has to wonder, does Gates already have the next pandemic in the soup kitchen ready to go? Seems far fetched someone would go to that length, but then man is probably off his rocker these days. However there is a reported smallpox outbreak in Yemen Would not be beyond his means to gather a sample and manufacture volumes of the disease. But I digress.

The focus here is that the supposed ‘informed intelligence class’ has missed it again. The fact is all over the West population is collapsing:

  • Today 50% of women approaching 30 are childless
  • Mass migration for a better life elsewhere is partly to blame.
  • Most of the countries that have at least a net replacement rate are in Africa.
  • In Russia they are paying for motherhood with free birth services and extended parental leave of up to 2 years. Fact part of Putin’s Ukraine positioning is the realization that in 30 years he will only be able to field an army half its current size. He wishes to shore up the moat before it is an irrecoverable situation.

The point is our leaders have missed the mark yet again. They don’t have to come up with viruses to wipe out the population all they have to do is wait. Population declines have a self feeding mechanism. With fewer births the next generation has a smaller base for further population. It is the double the pieces on the chess board observation only in reverse. As the video mentions we may never reach the 9Bn mark that was predicted just a five years ago.

Bottom line – With assessments that never come to fruition why do we even listen to these people anymore?

    I wish Bill Gates would either shut up or drop dead. In fact, I’d prefer the latter option.

    Biden reacts — https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/feb/22/biden-announces-sanctions-russian-banks-oligarchs-/

    Too late. Russia could care less. Its why they have been buying gold like a drug addict. They also have alternate arrangements for their biggest product, oil, and with the worlds biggest oil consumer, China. The Sauds are also playing footsie with RU on various military and business dealings. This might have caused RU to pause years ago but not now.

    7 – That would be unwise as much as DC would like too it would just further reduce dollar relevance, not to mention swift itself. Then again unwise seems to be this administrations specialty.

    Blast from the past

    https://www.ksl.com/article/50350769/gail-s-halvorsen-the-berlin-candy-bomber-dies-at-101

    In 1948, when he was a young U.S. Air Force pilot ferrying humanitarian aid in the Berlin airlift, Gail Halvorsen encountered a group of German children standing by the runway at Tempelhof Airport.

    As the kids peppered him with questions, he reached in his pocket and found two sticks of gum, which he broke into pieces and passed around the crowd. But it wasn’t nearly enough. Looking at the faces of all the kids who had been left out, he had a brainstorm. Tomorrow when he flew in his load of cargo, he promised the children, he would drop small handkerchief parachutes filled with candy and gum on his approach.

    “How will we know it’s you?” they asked.

    “I’ll wiggle my wings,” said Halvorsen.

    The legend of the Berlin Candy Bomber was born.

    Gail S. “Hal” Halvorsen died Wednesday night at Utah Valley Hospital in Provo……………….

    Halvorsen leaves behind a legacy of giving and generosity that goes far beyond the 21 tons of candy he and his fellow pilots collectively dropped to the children of Berlin in 1948 and 1949. Spurred by that event, he continued to participate in humanitarian causes throughout his life, including candy and toy drops across America and countries around the world. He took part in relief efforts in Bosnia, Albania, Kosovo, Japan, Guam, Iraq and the Micronesian islands.

    Scotland won’t release Covid stats anymore now that Vaxxed have more percentage cases than Unvaxxed. It might be used by Vaccine Hesitant activists and confuse people.

    “PHS will now withhold data after critics noted that, for the first time, the case rate among vaccinated (and boosted) individuals had overtaken the unvaccinated for Covid. The PHS notes (me: “claims” LOL) that there are various reasons for this shift and that it does not support anti-vax theories.
    These officials raise some interesting points to explain the differential, including what is viewed as a higher testing rate for the vaccinated and the overestimation of the size of the unvaxxed population. ”

    Re: 29,

    I have a twofer for this problem.

    * Canadians en masse should start crossing the northern border, filing for asylum.
    * A GOPer should at the same time formulate a bill specific to the situation granting permanent residency.

    It helps Canadians if it passes, but if it does not come out of committee it puts the Dims in a bind. How does Biden and company turn a blind eye to the Southern border when the basis for letting them in is ‘humanity’? Yet deny it for the Northern border? For the Dims it is a matter of the ‘wrong kind of people’ but they can’t admit it. Such is the hypocrisy of identity politics.

    Jim – #17 – there is a correlation between debt and population. As the debt has gone up, the population follows. Many believe when the debt goes bust, so will the population. Debt makes it possible for the population to expand. It will be biblical.

    As far as I can tell, cryptocurrency is an entryway drug for the emergence of a CBDCs — a globalist wet dream. What’s a CBDC?

    https://www.federalreserve.gov/faqs/what-is-a-central-bank-digital-currency.htm

    A CBDC is a digital form of central bank money that is widely available to the general public.

    While Americans have long held money predominantly in digital form—for example in bank accounts, payment apps or through online transactions—a CBDC would differ from existing digital money available to the general public because a CBDC would be a liability of the Federal Reserve, not of a commercial bank.

    A CBDC is essentially a government and central bank-backed stablecoin competitor to private stablecoints which are digital currencies pegged to traditional physical currencies.

    Through, CBDCs, the central banks of the world would essentially become the clearinghouse of ALL digital financial transactions (for the greater good of course). Once such consolidation takes place, there is no way in hell governments and central banks will allow alternative digital currencies such as Bitcoin to co-exist. Also, through CBDCs, the ability for governments to pull the shenanigans that Trudeau is pulling this week would become exponentially easier. In fact, the “programmability” of CBDCs is touted as a feature where CBDC’s are “programmed to ensure it is only spent on essentials, or goods which an employer or Government deems to be sensible.”

    CBDCs don’t exist just yet, but the G7 countries are currently laying down the technological and legislative foundations for them to be introduced over the next few years. If existing currencies begin to hyperinflate, look for CBDCs to be rolled out much quicker as the population clamors for some alternatives to their depreciating physical currency.

    The big takeaway —

    “If you were not vaccinated (which you shouldn’t be), ivermectin reduced your chance of death by 72%. So it was 3 times more effective than the vaccine. But the risk of ivermectin is negligible so the risk-benefit ratio is extremely favorable. Ivermectin has a 3X effect size (benefit) and is more than 100,000X less risky with respect to death risk, killing nobody (compared to over 200,000 people from the vaccine). So it’s the clear choice. It’s the only rational choice.”

    Reflections on the outlooks of various generations. This Millenial makes some good points. The Greatest Generation had to suffer and fight for freedom. Boomers got a safe environment to grow and prosper.
    Now, after many decades, a kind of war has come to our shores.
    https://rwmalonemd.substack.com/p/millennials-and-the-covid-19-pandemic
    “Our grandparents raised our parents after some serious Tyrannical times. This included the post-Nazi Germany era, the ending of the Jim Crow Era, the Vietnam War era, The Great Depression, and many more extreme events. Our grandparents knew what it was like to fight for freedom. They knew better yet what it was like to nearly lose it all. So, then we have the follow on generation, our Boomer parents, who have had a really nice ride because their parents sacrificed so much for them. In their own way they have developed a strong sense of their own privileges. So, would we be ignorant or naïve to think that this sense of urgency to fight for freedom may skip a generation or two? Speaking as only one of many Millennials with many different points of view, it certainly looks that way to me.”

    Some good insights into how Millenials view BigTech, news censorship and the like as well.

    56,

    “You keep using that graph. I don’t think the graph means what you think it means.” 🙂 Apologies to Princess Bride.

    So how do you read the graph? I could say the unvaxxed only had 20% deaths vs 80% deaths vaxxed. OR, you could read it the unvaxxed had a 20% survival rate vs 80% vaxxed. You don’t know because there is no legend that specify which. Based on that sloppy work, anybody would be confused. As was quoted in a movie…

    Professionals, those damn professionals!

    KH, 54,

    Rumor is the Canadian Senate was not amenable to approval of the passage of the Emergency Act. The Act itself has a ‘7 sitting day’ rule, passage or tabled. 7th day is today. To save face Trudumb pulled it to avoid defeat.

    That does not mean Canada is out of the woods. All the MPs that voted for this Act’s passage will have a political target on their back. The NDP may even cease to exist after this. Certainly Trudumb is a gonner. And the mindset of the investor class has not been salved. You don’t threaten capital and expect it to stand idly by and get stolen.

    I’m so confused. I was distracted by work all of today. Is Ukraine really under land attack by Russia, or is it just a bunch of blue-check morons on Twitter spazing out and hoping we go war?

    BTW, if this is just Russia occupying the two disputed Eastern regions, doesn’t this fall under Biden’s “minor incursion” clause so we won’t do anything?

    62 – The operation is in the “east” per Vlad, but that doesn’t mean command\control\AA and airfields everywhere will not be hit to decimate the ability of UA military to respond at all. Vlad told the UA to stop all operations against those two regions, they continued in the last 48hr. UA/US fucked around and found out.

    As for if they’ve just decided to take back the full LPR DPR provinces (only about 1/2 was in the breakaway folks control prior to tonight) in terms of ground desired, idk probably will not get some clarity till morning and it sure as hell will not come from MSM, but per the official RU announcements it’s focused around those areas. That said I would not be surprised in the least if additional ground is desired\taken cause …if you’re gonna take the hit for it anyway…fuck-it..might as well take all the buffer you actually want while you can.

    I turned on the msm for 30 minutes tonight (last half of ingram), had to turn it off cause I couldn’t take the amount of on-air stupidity, and the number of uses of “if…. if… if…” fucking nauseating.

    SO just told me Russia is moving troops into Ukraine. Force size unknown.

    64 – Yup.
    https://breaking911.com/breaking-putin-announces-military-operation-in-ukraine-warns-attempts-to-interfere-will-be-met-with-consequences-never-seen/

    “Russia cannot feel secure,” Putin said of Ukraine. “We have no other choice but to use the means we are about to announce.” “I have declared a special military operation,” Putin added.
    He also addressed the Ukrainian military directly, calling on the force to “lay down its arms.”
    The operation will be aimed at ‘defending people living in the newly-recognized republics of Donetsk and Lugansk,’ state-run Russian media outlet RT reported. “We decided to launch a special military action […] aimed at demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine.”

    Putin also threatened that any attempt to interfere with the Russian invasion would lead to “consequences they have never seen.”

    “I have a few words for those who could feel tempted to interfere with ongoing developments: whoever tries to impede us, let alone create threats for our country and its people must know that the Russian response will be immediate and lead to the consequences you have never seen in history,” said Putin.

    The trolling with the nazi inclusion is kinda hilarious, though I get it has has slightly more substance relative to UA it’s nearly as bs as when western leaders use it for similar cover.

    This war and suffering could have easily been avoided if Biden Admin/NATO had simply acknowledged Russia’s legitimate security concerns regarding Ukraine’s becoming a member of NATO, which would mean US/NATO forces right on Russia’s border

    The same reason the Kennedy initiated the cuban missile situation is the same reason that Putin is doing this right now.

    “Ukraine is urging the following action:

    The world must act immediately. Future of Europe & the world is at stake. To do list:

    1. Devastating sanctions on Russia NOW, including SWIFT
    2. Fully isolate Russia by all means, in all formats
    3. Weapons, equipment for Ukraine
    4. Financial assistance
    5. Humanitarian assistance

    No the future of the world and Europe is not at stake and hasn’t been.
    You could have implemented what was agreed in the Minsk agreement and none of this would be happening. Why am I supposed to shoot myself in the foot (1-4)because you and your western directors were short sighted and reckless for years including right up to the hours before kickoff?
    PS… 3-5 … don’t forget the 10% cut for the big guy.

    60, if 28% of the population is unvaxxed you’d expect 28% of cases, hospitalizations and deaths to consist of unvaxxed as well. But … they’re not. The vaxxed group is hitting way above their weight. If vaccines worked they should be barely scratched

    Gab commenter “When a nation is weak and behaves as if it is strong it is not long for this earth.”

    Wait.
    Is he describing Ukraine? Or US?

    For a long time Europe (and many others) have been itching for a diminished United States. Well, here is their chance to step up and show us how it’s done. Good luck.

    Stock futures and Bitcoin are having a conniption, but I’ve seen worse. Gold is jumping (probably along with all other commodities).

    Request for Vlad when he takes over Ukraine

    Please find all the documents tying the Biden Crime Family to financial crimes and send such to multiple news outlets, all Democrat and Republican lawmakers, House and Senate. Brandon should be impeached and removed ASAP.

    Comment I saw on zh.
    It’s a nice thought but all you would hear in the US press is “russian propaganda\misinformation”…
    if they even reported on such at all, more likely they’d probably Hunter™ the story. Congress act on it when many of their own are implicated, good luck. Not to mention I’m sure a fair amount of evidence that might have once existed has long since been lost, misplaced or wiped, like with a cloth. That just leaves the witnesses.

    70 – Probably meant UA, but it could be applied to the US as well.
    71 – They had the same chance from 08-16. The apology tour, a shithole but functional Libya, the JV squad post troop-removal, then Syria,near fall of iraq, Iran-nonDeal, indecision in Afganistan,red-lines?
    72 – brutal atm, wonder if it’ll claw back some by open, I mean it’s not like it’s a surprise.

    claw back some by open

    I predict a miracle recovery about 10 minutes before closing on Wednesday. They do that just to rub it in our face the market is a sham with unlimited printed dollars to prop it up at any time.

    “Christopher Miller @ChristopherJM
    Confirmed by Ukrainian authorities. A large air assault operation with Mi-8 helicopters on Antonov International Airport in Hostomel. Interior Ministry says Russia has seized control. Very dangerous; it’s just 15 minutes west of the capital ring road.

    –Have no idea who that person is or if the video is what is said. Also unclear what is meant by control of the airport, ie is it just shutdown or is it occupied? If the later that was fast.

    75 – 🙂

    Commodities

    Gold up $50
    Silver up $1
    Palladium up $224
    Oil (brent, wti) up $7.5 – 8.00

    Why Palladium? RU is the single viable mining location. OPEC market basket DOWN $2.
