Tuesday’s State of the Union address by US President Joe Biden was a choreographed event intended to portray the COVID-19 pandemic as over. It marked the climax of a weeks-long effort of the entire political establishment and corporate media, spearheaded by the Democratic Party, to force the American population to “live with the virus” and accept a “new normal” of unending mass infection, debilitation and death.

When you ask people what they know Japan for, one of the most common answers given would be ninjas.

When you ask people what they know Japan for, one of the most common answers given would be ninjas.

Most of what we know about ninjas isn’t that closely based on fact and is heavily influenced by 20th-century literature, comics, and film. Something about the mystery surrounding them gets the western world going, but do we really know them? We’ve dug up some of the strangest facts about ninjas to help enlighten us all about their shrouded past.

Who remembers the winter of 1985?

Who remembers the winter of 1985? In the UK, it was one of the coldest for many years, although east-west tension was beginning to thaw as US president Ronald Reagan met with Mikhail Gorbachev in November. I was 12 years old and unworried by historic political meetings or war in the middle east. All I wanted to do was play computer games. And I wanted to play them on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Looking at the present, I see a more probable future: a new despotism creeping slowly across America

“Looking at the present, I see a more probable future: a new despotism creeping slowly across America. Faceless oligarchs sit at command posts of a corporate-government complex that has been slowly evolving over many decades. In efforts to enlarge their own powers and privileges, they are willing to have others suffer the intended or unintended consequences of their institutional or personal greed. For Americans, these consequences include chronic inflation, recurring recession, open and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of air, water, soil and bodies, and, more important, the subversion of our constitution.—Bertram Gross, Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America

Tennis player Novak Djokovic’s refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19 — and his subsequent efforts to manipulate Australia’s medical exemption system

Tennis player Novak Djokovic’s refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19 — and his subsequent efforts to manipulate Australia’s medical exemption system so as to be allowed a visa to enter the country and compete in the first Grand Slam of the year — is one of the most surreal developments in tennis history. As of this writing, the stubbornly unvaccinated Djokovic is still in Australia, and still slated to play in the championships starting on Monday. Yet, for days now, he’s been hanging on by a thread. On Friday evening, Australian time, Alex Hawke, the country’s immigration minister, decided, for the second time in nine days, to expel him from the country for breaking quarantine rules while infected with COVID, for misleading immigration authorities about his travels prior to entering the country earlier this month, and for becoming a focal point of anti-vaccine sentiment in the country.

Notwithstanding that China is a relatively “shy participant” in Middle Eastern policy, the US hegemony, which claims exclusivity among the most “obedient” Arab countries (those which fall into its strategic sphere of influence), is threatened by it. The worrying aspect for the US is that Beijing seeks to present a different model that integrates and takes advantage of the US’s failed military experiences in many wars and direct political interference attempts over the past decades.

So writes Charles Eisenstein in Sacred Economics, defining a transition in human existence that has finally begun to haunt us—haunting some of us more than others, of course, in particular, that segment of humanity that was never part of the transition: a.k.a, the indigenous . . . the uncolonized . . .people of Planet Earth. Now, as global warming and ecological collapse becomes more and more of a reality, those who had nothing to do with it are bearing most of the hit, at least so far.

On November 8, 2021, Twitter locked my account  for a period of one day for responding to corporate media darling and Russiagate fanatic Keith Olbermann’s slanderous reply  to journalist Wyatt Reed’s coverage of the Nicaraguan election

On November 8, 2021, Twitter locked my account for a period of one day for responding to corporate media darling and Russiagate fanatic Keith Olbermann’s slanderous reply to journalist Wyatt Reed’s coverage of the Nicaraguan election. The flagged tweet simply restated Olbermann’s question, replacing “whore for a dictator” with “whoring for the American oligarchy.” Twitter demanded that I delete the tweet or send a time-consuming, lengthy appeal with no assurances as to if or when my sentence in “Twitter jail” would end. This prompted me to delete the tweet and wait for the 12-hour suspension to end. Keith Olbermann’s account went unscathed.

The US and Europe are now entering a fourth or is it the fifth COVID cycle, new infections, new peaks in deaths and a feeling of hopelessness that is darkening the Judeo-Christian holiday season.

The US and Europe are now entering a fourth or is it the fifth COVID cycle, new infections, new peaks in deaths and a feeling of hopelessness that is darkening the Judeo-Christian holiday season. It is driven by what some generously call “vaccine resistance.” Without the anti-vaccine movement, COVID would have ended in much of the world where vaccines are plentiful and safe. Are the vaccines safe? That answer is a clear yes, side effects, based on the hundreds of millions inoculated, are rare and the current rate of serious infection and death between unvaccinated and vaccinated runs about 20 to one. Unvaccinated are “dying like flies” in both Europe and the US but their deaths, running around 5000 a month for month after month, are only a symptom of a greater disease
