Pay With a Smile? No Way! (Telegraph)

TMR f Gurpreet Narwan, "Wave goodbye to cards at the checkouts that let you pay with a smile", Telegraph (17 May 2022)

No. We must not allow this. The idea that this is inevitable is false. We do not have to be slaves to the technocrats' ideology of "progress". (Why is it progress to become more ensnared by technology?) No, we can choose our own destiny. Mastercard's "biometric checkout programme" at supermarkets will be secure and convenient, they say. Well, maybe, but we know where that heads. It heads straight in the direction of the cashless society, in which digital currency can be programmed so we spend it as "they" want and we can be denied access to our accounts if we dissent. Please use cash as much as you can.

Bill "Moobs" Gates Must Be Stopped (Eugyppius)

TMR f Eugyppius, “We Must Find a Way to Prevent Bill Gates from Preventing the Next Pandemic", Eugyppius.com (07 May 2022)

You've probably read this already. It's certainly been shared enough online in the last 24 hours. But I simply cannot resist flagging it up anyway. The brilliant "Eugyppius" shares his review of Bill Gates' new book, How to Prevent the Next Pandemic, which he describes as suffering from a "total absence from its pages of any original thought" (which saves me £18.59 right there) and written by a man who belongs to "a new breed of low-brow elite who present themselves as leaders, while eagerly following every source of celebrity and authority they know."

Central Bank Digital Currencies (Charles Eisenstein)

TMR f Charles Eisenstein, “Central Bank Digital Currencies : And the Social Nature of Money", Charles Eisenstein on Substack (20 April 2022)

Please don't dismiss this as just another article about the perils of CBDCs. It's much more than that. In his typically brilliant way, Charles Eisenstein (what a fantastic name!)—whose worldview probably differs from mine in some fundamental ways—clearly explains the benefits and considerable disbenefits of Central Bank Digital Currencies.

But he goes further to explore the social nature of money, which—while we may not agree with every aspect of his analysis—certainly throws up some new (to me) and very interesting questions as to the nature and role of money in society. Please read this and ponder if you have about twenty minutes to spare.

"For the Children" and Other Monstrosities (Miller/Bentley)

TMR f Mark Crispin Miller, “No, it's NOT "fake news." It's Nazi propaganda", News from Undeground on Substack (02 May 2022)

This is very much worth reading. Mark Crispin Miller shares a report by Russell Bentley of Texas currently living in Donbass, whose "exemplary takedown of the “Ukraine” propaganda" Miller says "demolishes three whopping lies about "Ukraine," with visual evidence beyond dispute."

Whether the evidence is actually "beyond dispute" I leave you to decide, but it seems pretty convincing to me.

The Foegen Effect & Face Masks (Zacharias Fögen)

TMR f Dr Zacharis Fögen, "The Foegen Effect: Why Face Masks Increase the Death Rate of COVID-19", The Daily Sceptic (02 May 2022)

I haven't always been against face masks. In the early days of the "pandemic" I wore one in some circumstances, because I thought there might be some minor benefit for other people.

I reasoned as follows. 1) I might unknowingly have SARS-CoV-2 in my system and be exhaling some virions; 2) some of those (droplet-encased) virions might get trapped in the material of the face mask and thus reduce the potential "viral load" for another person; 3) whatever health disbenefits there might be to wearing a face mask would probably be so minimal—in my case (since I only ever wore one for a very short period of time)—as to be not worth worrying about.

Whoops, Snake Island Soldiers Not Dead After All (Jerusalem Post)

TMR f Will Jones, “Ukraine Soldiers Praised For Telling Russian Warship to “Go F*** Yourself” Actually Surrendered", The Daily Sceptic (28 February 2022)

Well, well, someone seems to have been telling porkies. First, I heard on BBC radio that Ukraine had claimed Ukrainian guards on Snake Island had been killed by a Russian warship after heroically telling the Russians to "sling their hook" (so to speak). Then I turned to RT (which has not yet been banned in the UK), which claimed that they'd all surrendered and showed (what they claimed was) footage of the guards disembarking from the ship in good health.

UK Government Now Lab-Leak Conspiracy Theorists (Telegraph)

TMR f Sarah Knapton, “Wuhan lab leak theory ‘accepted as likely behind closed doors at No 10’ ", Telegraph (22 February 2022)

The Telegraph reports that—according to Hamish de Bretton-Gordon (a well-known weapons expert and former British Army officer), who is being consulted by the UK government for its "new biosecurity strategy"—it is now widely (though not openly) acknowledged in government circles that SARS-CoV-2 leaked from a lab. So now, as we recall that famous statemement in the Lancet"We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin"—I guess even the British government is full of conspiracy theorists. Well, that's a refreshing change.

Ukraine? Well, Remember Nord Stream 2? (Mike Whitney)

TMR f Mike Whitney, “The Crisis In Ukraine Is Not About Ukraine: It’s About Germany – OpEd”, Eurasia Review (16 February 2022)

One thing about a good hypothesis is its predictive power. Thanks, Mike Whitney. And guess what's just gone up on the BBC News website this evening? This: "Ukraine crisis: Germany halts pipeline as nations sanction Russia". As the BBC says, "The Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been supported by Germany despite opposition from countries such as the US, UK, Poland and Ukraine." Don't suppose this has anything to do with what's going on there though. That would be too conspiratorial....

Lockdowns Worked 0.2% (Studies in Applied Economics)

TMR f Jonas Herby, Lars Jonung and Steve H. Hanke, “A Literature Review and Meta-Analysis of the Effects of Lockdowns on COVID-19 Mortality”, Studies in Applied Economics, Johns Hopkins (SAE, #200, January 2022)

In this literature review and meta-analysis, researchers publishing in Johns Hopkins University's Studies in Applied Economics find that lockdown measures put in place during the early stage of the pandemic in Europe and the US reduced COVID-19 mortality by a mere 0.2%. They conclude:

Containment Collapse (Euggypius)

TMR f "Containment Collapse : Reader Reports", Euggypius : A Plague Chronicle (Euggypius.com) (06 February 2022)

Fascinating read. Euggypius shares letters from readers all around the world describing the current state of COVID restrictions (or lack thereof) in their respective countries. It really does give an up-to-date, on-the-ground impression of what life is like in many different locales.

Canada Truck Convoy Leaders Press Conference Video (3 Feb)

TMR f "Truck convoy leaders hold news conference in Ottawa – February 3, 2022", CPAC* YouTube channel (03 February 2022)

This is the latest press conference with the leaders of "Freedom Convoy 2022" in Canada. (Coverage begins about the 9 min 45 second mark.)

"The leaders of 'Freedom Convoy 2022', a group of truck drivers and their supporters occupying downtown Ottawa, hold a news conference to address various issues surrounding their ongoing protest. The demonstration against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and restrictions has gripped the city since it began on January 28 on Parliament Hill."—CPAC

NHS Scientist's Letter to Sajid Javid (DailySceptic)

TMR f "Read the Letter From an NHS Clinical Scientist to Sajid Javid on Why She is Quitting Over the Covid Vaccines", Daily Sceptic (02 February 2022)

This is a well-written and principled letter by "an NHS Clinical Scientist of some 25 years" (as the Daily Sceptic attests), explaining why she has resigned from the UK's National Health Service. In essence, it's because of the "vaccines" and the complicity of the NHS in pushing them so unquestioningly. Sajid Javid won't read it, of course.

Darkness Falls Over Austria (Luke Perry)

TMR f Luke Perry, "Mandatory Vaccination : Darkness Falls Over Austria", Bournbrook Magazine (01 February 2022)

If you pray, please pray for Austria. (There's still the question as to whether the "authorities" will carry out their threats and actually impose the fines they've put onto the statute books, but they've crossed the line anyway by criminalising citizens for simply exercising their God-given right to bodily autonomy.) As Perry says: "A darkness has fallen over Austria, nestling its shadow into the very heart of central Europe."

Key Medical Panel on "Pandemic" Response (Sen. Ron Johnson)

TMR f US Senator Ron Johnson, "Covid-19: A Second Opinion", Rumble.com (24 January 2022)

Courageous US Senator Ron Johnson moderates an important panel discussion with world-renowned doctors and other medical experts who give their perspectives on the global "pandemic" response, discuss early and hospital treatment, vaccine efficacy and safety, what went right, what went wrong, and what needs to be done both now and long term. The session also includes testimony from Dr Paul Marik explaining how badly he has been treated for simply wanting to heal his patients.

Dutch Truckers Too? (Mirror)

TMR f "EU face another major protest as Dutch truckers first to follow in Canada demonstration", Express (30 January 2022)

Is the trucker demo catching on? Looks like it might be. Maybe you know of more evidence of international expressions of this movement. There's something really satisfying about this, isn't there (?) The elites dream up their policies and think they can just bark orders for everyone to follow. But they forget that it takes real people, doing real jobs, to make the system work; and if those people say, "No, we're not going to put up with that", then the system grinds to a halt.

Trudeau Flees 50K "Small Fringe Minority" Truckers (Mail Online)

TMR f "Justin Trudeau and his family flee Canadian capital Ottawa as up to 50,000 'Freedom Convoy' anti-vaccine mandate truckers arrive at his office - days after he dismissed them as a 'small fringe minority' ", Mail Online (30 January 2022)

Not a bad piece in the Mail Online covering the "50,000" (well, lots) Canadian Truckers and Justin Trudeau's retreat to an undisclosed location. Quite a lot of good photos, which don't try to hide the magnitude of this hugely important protest (not just for Canada), and, thankfully, very little by way of propagandistic effort to discredit it. I would have expected "antivax" in the headline, but instead we get the more truthful "anti-vaccine mandate", plus a well-deserved poke at Trudeau for his lame effort in describing these protesters as a "small fringe minority".

Israel & Vaccine Failure (Berenson)

TMR f Alex Berenson, "Israel is overrun with Covid. The vaccines have failed. The experiment must stop", Alex Berenson on Substack (28 January 2022)

I must admit, I've become a bit of an Alex Berenson fan over recent months. (Update: Well, umm, see below.). I like is forthright style, saying it as he sees it, and his sense of humour. (Although I wasn't too keen on his silly spat with Dr Robert Malone recently; and he's not quite conspiratorial enough for my tastes.) Anyway, this article is important in my view. As he says, "it's over", by which he means, judging by the Israeli data it should be over. And, in a rather nice dig at Pfizer's corporate exploitation of scientism with their "Science Will Win" meme, Berenson adds: "Science didn't win. Biology won." Very much worth a read.

Beware COVID Turncoats (Delingpole)

TMR f James Delingpole, "Beware the Covid turncoats crawling out of the woodwork", Conservative Woman (24 January 2022)

Excellent piece by the one and only James Delingpole—(now, I'm glad to say, proudly self-identifying as a "conspiracy theorist")—who hits out at all the media pundits currently claiming that they had reservations about COVID restrictions all along. (No surprise really. I've often noticed that when a story changes many people are quick to try to convince others, and themselves, that they "thought so all along".)

Now What? THIS (Weinstein & Martenson)

TMR f "Bret Weinstein and Chris Martenson Simulcast", Dark Horse Podcast via Peak Prosperity Odysee channel (22 January 2022)

This isn't so much a recommendation as a notice: PLEASE WATCH THIS. We need to understand the present moment. The COVID narrative (or the current phase of it) seems to be collapsing, but the forces that exploit(ed) the so-called pandemic are very much still in place. Here, Drs Weinstein and Martenson provide amazingly clear analysis of the situation we face and offer a vision for what they believe should now happen for this kind of tragedy never to be repeated.

Jolly Impressive IVM Study (FLCCC)

TMR f "Large, peer-reviewed research study proves ivermectin works", FLCCC Alliance on Substack (20 January 2022)

"Proves" is their word, not mine. I am not a medical person, so I can't judge the matter. What I will say though is that I rarely use the word "proof" about anything. Maybe 2+2=4 is pretty safe (at least it is for me), but I generally prefer things like "highly likely" or "beyond reasonable doubt" and other bet-hedging phrases like that. But the FLCCC Alliance is made of sturdier stuff, and if they're prepared to say this study "proves" the case, well, that must mean they're hugely impressed. Which is good enough for me.
