    SPIKE PROTEIN ADDICTS: Covid vaccine junkies are lying about being unvaccinated so they can get extra booster shots
    https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-09-30-covid-vaccine-junkies-lying-unvaccinated-booster-shots.html

    • 1539days says:

      OOh, I have a new business idea.
      Pay someone to get your COVID shot. They put in all your information and walk into the place as you and get the jab. Then you have a vaccine card that’s legitimate, but for a different person.

    • Constance says:

      The Covid virtue signalling is strong here in Seattle. They should invent some vest like we had in Campfire to sew your vaccine tokens on to. You could have cheap utilitarian ones and super expensive movie star token vests.

    This substack with newspaper clippings from 1918 is FASCINATING. Also, when I google the keywords, I get a bunch of articles about how black NBA players who have natural immunity should be ashamed of themselves.

    I tried Denny’s Eggs Benedict again. I did what EM and others suggested and got Hollandaise in a little bowl. I think they may have given me more because of that. It was cold when I got it. So now, I’m pretty sure it’s 1)from a mix and 2)stored in a fridge and probably spooned on cold or room temperature. Not bad, but I think if I get it again I’ll put it on a real plate.

    Stink Bugs In NY: How To Stop Them Before They Smell Up Your Home

    Brown marmorated stink bugs, which have been detected in New York and 46 others, are trying to crawl into your house for the winter

    https://patch.com/new-york/massapequa/stink-bugs-ny-how-stop-them-they-smell-your-home

    • elliesmom says:

      The best way to get rid of stink bugs is to vacuum them up. If they cause an odor inside your vacuum, you can vacuum up something like Arm and Hammer’s Carpet Fresh after. They aren’t harmful or destructive inside the house, and they only stink if you crush them. Of course, they’re ugly little things so our first instinct is to crush them.

    I’m trying to figure out why Biden’s handlers want the IRS to be notified anytime anyone spends over $600 in a single transaction. Why do they want to know if I buy a new sofa? Most people’s transactions over $600 are monthly mortgage or rent payments, taxes, insurance? There’s extra money in the IRS’s budget to hire staff to manage this. Banks will probably need to hire folks to oversee the reporting. Is this just a “make work” thing, or is there a nefarious reason behind this?

    • lyn5 says:

      $600 is the magic income-reporting number. If Fuck Joe Biden wants that, it shows how desperate he is for tax money from America citizens.

      • Somebody says:

        Yes Lyn is correct, they can track etsy purchases or eBay and then make sure the seller paid taxes.

        However, I can’t help but wonder if down the road there isn’t a more sinister purpose we haven’t even thought of. Perhaps in the future all of your purchases will be monitored, then you’ll go to fill up your car and be told you’ve exceeded your gas ration for the month. Go to buy groceries, sorry no food for you.

        No matter the true reason, we do not need that level of surveillance of our finances by the federal government. Think back to the Patriot Act, what it was supposed to be and what it enabled.

        • lateblum says:

          If the crazies have their way, the unvaxxed will have limits placed on purchases, gasoline, or other rationed goods based on these reports.

          Credit cards have been collecting private spending data from citizens for 70 years. Mastercard (Rockefellers), Visa (Rothschilds), AmEx (Mormons). Nothing new.

        $3.5 trillion is going to need taxes from everywhere.

        • lateblum says:

          Pelosi is supposedly holding the vote today. She said she will keep Congress in session all weekend until the bill is passed.

        • threewickets says:

          The Carlyle Fed prints fiat collars at no cost. The Carlyle Fed keystroke credits all US federal spending to federal agencies, federal contracters, federal accounts receivable clients and voters. Every cent. The Treasury is mainly a monetary sterilization vehicle and front for the Fed (bond auctions, federal taxes). The Treasury is not a piggy bank. The federal “budget” is a political charade.

          • threewickets says:

            The Treasury’s other job besides M1 money-supply sterilization is international banking sanctions against countries we don’t like. 🙂

          • threewickets says:

            The Treasury is a “piggy bank” for Bill Clinton’s American “morons” … the US citizenry at large that can be easily taken advantage of. Something we might call Tawana Patriotism.

    • jadzia1971 says:

      We are banned from spending more than $1000 cash in a single transaction. Of course, that law doesn’t apply to foreigners (like rich Russians who want to spend their totally-legitimately-earned funds on Vuitton bags and the like). I prefer cash and constantly battled with my old bank about being “allowed” to withdraw it.

    • CalSteno says:

      There is speculation based on Janet Yellin’s comments (yesterday I believe) that the feds are hoping to tax everyone’s assets. This could include the value of your property (home and income), cars, boats, jewelry, furniture, etc.; basically anything over $600. This tax would be in addition to sales, property, income taxes. This would help pay for bill(s) they are trying to ram through Congress now. I believe she was testifying before some congressional committee.

      • threewickets says:

        The Carlyle Fed prints fiat dollars at no cost. The broad US economy is still deflating in real terms (with the help of our capital account balance with China, aka our super-obese 400 pound fiat dollar). Any talk of federal taxes is nonsense. We are shrinking as a nation thanks to Tawana-nomics. It’s gay.

    https://rumble.com/vn50ax-new-evidence-of-fbi-involvement-in-the-16-protest-with-darren-beattie-who-b.html

    When former Trump speechwriter Darren Beattie reported in June that there was evidence suggesting FBI foreknowledge of the January 6 protest at the Capitol, if not active involvement, the corporate media mocked him and others who took it seriously for being deranged conspiracy theories. But now, the New York Times just reported that the FBI had at least one informant at the Capitol on that day. On the latest SYSTEM UPDATE, Glenn Greenwald speaks to Beattie about what do know now about involvement by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. They also discuss whether concept of “right” and “left” are changing radically.

    • 1539days says:

      I have a free SiriusXM subscription, so I listen to MSNBC in the car sometimes. This morning, instead of their 24/7 bashing of Joe Manchin about being the holdout Democrat in the $3.5 trillion “infrastructure” bill, they’re now pivoting to him maybe being right and that a 50-50 Senate and a 51% majority in the House isn’t a mandate and the progressives can’t get everything.
      This isn’t about moderation, but the idea that Biden needs a “win” in order for people to not turn on him and vote out Democrats. Political left and right is devolving into two political teams that want wins and only believe in what gets them elected.

      • lateblum says:

        It just keeps getting worse and worse. I just was reading the Nextdoor app to find a new auto insurer and saw the hundreds (not an exaggeration) of people who were raving about the “Trump crazies” who were attacking the Capitol and threatening to kill legislators on Jan 6. These people have been so blinded with hate and so easily brainwashed that it is frightening.

        • Constance says:

          I love to argue with the idiots on Nextdoor. I had my comments removed just this week when they were talking about reporting the crime in the parks to the FBI as organized crime. Apparently the women of our “unhoused neighbors’ living in the parks are prostitutes who are drug users! Who could have figured!! But anyway I commented that the FBI were too busy planning and carrying out False Flags like kidnapping Gov Whitmer and the Jan 6 “insurrection” to have time to deal with other organized crime. WOW I was censored in 30 mins and now I get warnings every time I sign on.

          • lyn5 says:

            You struck a leftard nerve.

          • lateblum says:

            Honestly, you are one of my greatest heroes. I’ve done only a little challenging on Nextdoor because this is a parochial community and I need some of what the app offers. And this town is so woke, people would not hesitate to not only label me, but would also openly ban me from the shops I frequent. I am, deep down a coward, I guess.

    • threewickets says:

      Trump is a pro-wrestling shyster like our Cabaret Congress, but I think Trump is a genuine patriot. Tawana is not. Tawana’s gay penis only stands for gay global lying lying lying in the name of brown people cock=blocking. I don’t know if such a penis has much of a future. Among other things it has seriously fucked the well-being and integrity of the American people. Enough.

    • elliesmom says:

      As it becomes so apparent it can’t be ignored that the vaccinated are spreaders, this will become harder to justify, but employers aren’t legally obligated to provide health insurance to anyone. I think this is all going to fall apart when employees (or spouses)) start suing their employers over adverse effects from the vaccines. The pharmaceutical companies may have immunity, but I don’t think that will extend to companies. Who knows, though? Maybe getting the vaccine is a “tax”. There was a policeman on Fox with his lawyer who has filed a lawsuit against the municipality because the vaccine has disabled him. The lawsuits are just starting.

      • Somebody says:

        My daughter that works for a fortune 50 company is mandated to be fully vaccinated by October 15th. This company has mandated the vaccine even for their employees that work remotely.

        The edict came from the legal department and HR. My daughter inquired in writing through her manager what type of compensation is the company planning for employees that suffer adverse effects, also whether they are HIPPA compliant, what other medical records they intend to seek, what other aspects of employees health they intend to control and a bunch of other stuff.

        My daughter is 35, the only vaccine available is moderna. She’s been thrown into menopause, complete with horrible hot flashes. She’s been to two doctors, both of which shrugged and basically said shit happens.

        • lateblum says:

          I am sorry for your daughter. Being thrown into menopause at so young an age is very sad. Did your daughter get any responses to her questions, somebody?

          • Somebody says:

            So far there has been no response, but her questions were just some of many. There were others on her team asking questions too. That’s just her team this company has tens of thousands of employees and probably that many or more questions.

            As for menopause her OB/GYN says it may not be permanent. She said most women are having issues for 5 to 6 cycles and then normalizing. Then she said my daughter’s situation is unique and there isn’t a lot of data, but hopefully it’s only temporary.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          I am over 60 and the shots gave me flashes to rival those from cancer therapy and even the hysterectomy. They are calming down and its certainly not the worst side effect but it gives one pause. Most younger woman I know had some type of change in their cycles too frequent, none, . . . Hope your daughter’s system adjusted back to her norm. I find concerning that the shots appear to have such a consistent effect on the reproductive system.

          • 1539days says:

            Just listened to the Shannon Joy show last night and someone called her about developing Bells Palsy after getting his shot. He got it because he was a Buffalo Bills season ticket holder and wasn’t allowed in unless he got stuck.

        • 1539days says:

          Also, she should ask for a letter from the company stating that she must be injected as a condition of employment, just to make the potential lawsuit easier.

          • Somebody says:

            She already has that, all of the employees do. You must be fully vaccinated by 10-15, to prove it you must submit your vaccine card AND attest in a sworn affidavit that you got X vaccine from X lot number at X location on X date and X date. The letter reads that you are not fully vaccinated and turned in the appropriate paperwork by 10-15 your future employment with the company is uncertain.

      • lateblum says:

        I hope you’re right. I hope those lawsuits are going to make a difference.

    Apparently, Merck want in on the COVID-19 money. At least this is a drug for people who HAVE COVID. What a crazy idea, treating people who are sick instead of pre-treating people who are healthy.

    • Somebody says:

      I am curious about this drug, it’s supposedly similar to remdesivir. Remdesivir has horrible side effects, almost half suffer severe kidney damage.

      I’m curious if any of the clinical trial subjects had kidney issues and if so what percentage

    I had to share this

    Imagine that:
    You were born in the year 1900
    You are 14 years old when World War I begins and 18 years when it ends.
    Result: 22 million dead
    Soon after, a global pandemic, the Spanish flu, will emerge. 50 million people die.
    Fortunately, you are still alive and are now 20 years old.
    When you are 29 years old, you will survive the global economic crisis that started with the breakdown of New York’s stock exchange.
    This led to inflation, unemployment and famine worldwide.
    Meanwhile, since you are 33 years old, the Nazis will come to power in Germany.
    Since you are 39 years old, Germany invades Poland, and begins World War II.
    You are finally 45 years old when World War II ends.
    Result: 60 million dead. 6 million Jews die in the Holocaust.
    Luckily you’re still alive…..
    Since you are 52 years old, the Korean War begins.
    Since you are 64 years old, Americans started the war in Vietnam.
    You are 75 when the war ended
    Luckily you’re still alive……
    Now…..
    A boy born in 1980 believes his grandparents have no idea how difficult life is. But they survived several wars and disasters, not to mention the restrictions during the first oil crisis in the early 1980 s.
    Today we live in a new world full of comfort, but unfortunately in the midst of a new pandemic.
    People complain about staying home for weeks.
    While they have power, cellphones, food, hot water and a safe roof over their heads.
    None of that existed in previous times.
    But humanity survived these circumstances and they never lost their joy of life.
    Today we complain because we have to wear face masks to enter the supermarkets.
    A small change in our mind and mentality can work miracles.
    We want to thank you and me who are still alive if we want to do everything necessary to protect and help each other.
    I think this message makes everyone think..
    Please share.

    • elliesmom says:

      Tomorrow will be the 102nd anniversary of my dad’s birthday. While I completely agree he and his parents lived through hell, I find it hard to believe he would have meekly donned a facemask and taken an experimental vaccine without asking a lot of questions out of a sense of obligation to people who are frightened, but not really threatened. I like the beginning of this post, but the end is a little too SJW to appeal to the folks in my life born in 1900 or so. My maternal grandmother survived the explosion of the two tankers in the harbor in Halifax, NS in 1917, and I’m pretty sure she would have had some harsh words for the people who just accept doing what they’re told by the government. Only her husband’s persistence saved her life.

      • 1539days says:

        My paternal grandparents probably fit that time frame. Also the children of immigrants. I never met them, though, so they didn’t make it into the late 1900’s.

        Back then, wearing masks was a best guess from a medical community that would take another 20 years to develop a vaccine. Now, it’s far too political. Fauci was lionized by a press who hated everything Trump stood for. Fauci contradicted himself far too many times to be believed. Mask advocates went maskless. The CDC lied about vaccine effectiveness. Doctors refuse to report vaccine side effects, and I have a source that says this shit is commonplace in reality. On top of that, the vaccines are ineffective and their expiration date was either unknown or ignored by health organizations.

        Helping my fellow man is one thing, doing something because the state says it’s the way is another.

    Koryo North Korea is frankly more Manchurian and Mongolian than South Korea. Closer historically to Beijing, Sendai, even Sapporo. Baekje-Shilla South Korea is more Shanghai, Kansai, Nagasaki. The division is not purely the result of CIA fuck-ups and the retreat of British-American Imperial Japan’s Army in the 1930s and 1940s when faced with Mao’s People’s Army. But bottom line … Koreans speak the same language, they are the same people. And China today is the largest and fastest growing economy in the world. You can’t lead the world by lying lying lying to the world forever, Joe Biden. Wake the fuck up.
