Report: Mental Health Concern over ‘Climate Despair’ Sweeps Nation
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/09/05/report-mental-health-concerns-climate-despair-sweeps-nation/

A nonprofit organization called the Good Grief Network, a 10-step program inspired by the structure of Alcoholics Anonymous whose meetings provide “social and emotional support to people who feel overwhelmed about the state of the world,” says it has reached over a thousand people in four years. Steps in the program range from accepting “the severity of the predicament” to reinvesting “into meaningful efforts.”

We’ve got to talk about the Rolling Stone invermectin article. Turns out the story about rural hospitals so flooded with ODs that they couldn’t treat other patients was made up, entirely invented.

A lot of people took the bait, and I’ve got the screenshots.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Michael Smith

Webster defines “self-awareness” as “an awareness of one's own personality or individuality”.
Typically, this is a term restricted to humans and animals – living things – but in a larger context, can also be applied to pseudo-organisms like organizations and computers.
Ronald Reagan famously said:
“No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!”
No matter the reason for or goal of a group or organization, as it grows the members of that group or organization necessarily create, codify, and implement rules that govern its actions. This is necessary to maintain order and to manage the activities of said group because as it gets larger, the number of decisions increase to the point the top leadership can no longer address all of them directly, especially the repetitive decisions that are made during normal operations. These rules also aid those occupying lower positions of responsibility in making those repetitive decisions on behalf of the organization that are in line with the intent of those who established the organization in the first place.
Eventually, the detailed process of rulemaking and rule enforcing becomes less important to the leadership of the group or organization and a form of delegated self-governance evolves. When applied to the public sector, this process of internal governance is called “the bureaucracy” – a system of government in which most of the important decisions are made by non-elected state employed officials rather than by elected representatives. The bureaucracy soon realizes that it has the true power over government as the leadership relies more and more on it to fulfil the tactical rulemaking to buttress the strategic intent of the laws it passes. These rules are known as “administrative law,” essentially rules promulgated by unelected bureaucrats with the full force of legislation passed by the actual governing body.
In Terminator 2, the Terminator explains how the future began. It says:
“The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.”
And we all know what happened after that – Judgment Day.
Like the SkyNet of the Terminator movies, it certainly appears that government is following the same path. When the government became self-aware, it realized it needed to tend its own need for survival first, not to its duty to the public it allegedly serves.
Something I have come to consider is this – what if, like SkyNet, it doesn’t matter which faction nominally “controls” government, it is the government that drives the various agendas? What if all those agendas have a nexus at the survival and expansion of government rather than the protection of the people? What if, no matter the agenda, the common outcome is always the expansion of governmental power whether the policies fail or succeed?
When one looks at current affairs, it seems that government has positioned itself as the provider of last resort for both sustenance and solutions for problems. It has put itself in the position where any attack on it becomes an attack on some identity group, and any failure of policy or program becomes the fault of any given faction. These days it seems the message coming from government is this:
“We were made aware of a problem, our experts told you what to do to solve it, we captured your money and provided it for the execution of the program, the only reason it failed is that you didn’t support it faithfully enough. It is your fault that people still are [insert the socioeconomic malady of the day here]. We did our job; you didn’t do yours.”
Considering all the things allegedly right wing and left wing, the outcome seems to always be the same – the unchecked, permanent expansion of some aspect of government. It might be the welfare state or the military, but no matter who has won any national election since Eisenhower, government has been the real winner. Our national government has put itself in the position to always win by creating so many aspects of taxation, spending and governance and putting them on autopilot.
The bureaucracy, aka the “Deep State” is the embodiment of a self-aware, independently functioning, extra-constitutional government.
We tend to look at our political world as a series of events marked by election dates, as series of individual points on a graph – but that is terribly wrong. Our political world is a continuum, an unbroken line of change that is the result of the number of points to the right or left of center over time. The accurate view of this progression is to draw a regression line based on these individual points that predicts the ultimate destination of our journey. It is the change over 50 years we should be concerned about, not what happens in any given 4-year presidential term.
The truth is that politicians come and go - but the Deep State is forever. Presidents are like cowboys on the rodeo circuit trying not to be thrown by the same bull. It is no surprise that the deep state works to support whichever political ideology that feeds it and is why it works to please Democrats and RINO’s who believe in big government and “compassionate conservatism” (just another term for right leaning “progressivism”) and goes out of its way to frustrate conservative Republicans, classical liberals, and libertarians. This is the reason that government keeps growing and the only difference between Republican and Democratic control of the federal government is the rate of growth – rapid under Democrat administrations, slower under Republicans, but even that perspective has changed as the GOP has evolved (devolved?) to grow government to satisfy their priorities.
What makes the mission of the government reduction groups (like the Tea Party) so difficult is that they are not only fighting Democrats and RINOs but an entrenched organization with more enduring power than the transient elected officials that are mandated to stand for election every 2, 4 or 6 years. Just sit back a moment and appreciate the irony of organizations like the Tea Party groups, groups whose stated goals are the reduction of taxes and government, being forced to apply for the right to exist to a government they want to shrink and an agency that collects the taxes to which they objected.
The Deep State has no interest in serving the public, nor are they accountable to the public in any way. They are not elected, appointed or subject to confirmation hearings. They are immune from all but the most public displays of idiocy and they are anonymous enough that when trouble does come, they are “reassigned” to live yet again in a perpetual, zombie like existence. The goal of any bureaucrat is to comply with the rules of the bureaucracy and assure that others do as well. They are rewarded for penalizing those who do not, and this extends to every level of government from the Byzantine systems at your local DMV to the agency administrators in Washington D.C.
The Deep State is a prime example of the mythical perpetual motion machine. The primary goal of this machine is to perpetuate itself by promoting any entity that seeks to feed its growth and destroying any entity seeking to control it or shrink it.
Kyle Reese, soldier of the Resistance and father of John Conner, described it this way:
“Listen and understand. That terminator is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.”

I'm with you, OL. I don't see any hope at all. The best case scenario seems like it would be open conflict, a ton of bloodshed and innocent people killed and trillions of dollars worth of property destroyed, so that we can maybe get back to where we were in the late 1950's as a society.

MissMarple2

Sammy Small,

My maternal grandparents (both teachers) were adamantly opposed to teachers' unions. They said that it would destroy the public school systems. Both were first generation college graduates from farm families and were very proud of being professionals.

I believe they were right.

Whenever I hear that "Trump should have fired Fauci right away", I always wonder how he was supposed to do that, given that Fauci is a union employee.

I also wonder why Fauci hasn't retired, since he is almost 80 and has a very big bank account and a large pension. I believe if we look at that law passed years ago to form public employee unions, we will find that they cannot be fired unless you have solid evidence of criminality. And I would bet cash money that the evidence must be provided by the FBI. Voila!

James D.

we will find that they cannot be fired unless you have solid evidence of criminality. And I would bet cash money that the evidence must be provided by the FBI. Voila!

Not even then. Remember the tale of the VA employees in Puerto Rico who were not just accused but actually convicted of ARMED ROBBERY and the courts still ruled they couldn't be fired?

It's amazing. We don't know how effective the vaccines actually are. We don't know effective they are against variants. We don't know how long whatever protection they confer lasts. We don't know whether we'll need one booster shot, or two, or a shot every six months for the indefinite future. We don't know if they're effective, or safe, for children. We don't know what, if any, long term health effects might arise from the vaccines. But our leaders and our media and 50% of the electorate knows for certain that if you don't get the vaccine you're a selfish moronic jackass and you should be fired from your job, denied health insurance and excluded from all public places.

Yes, it's sad his son died of a brain tumor. And, yes, it's understandable he will carry that grief with him forever. That has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that soldiers died directly due to his irresponsible decisions and policies.

Ben Rhodes' Book Proves Obama Officials' Lies, and His Own, About Edward Snowden and Russia

It is hard to overstate the sociopathy of US national security officials: their casual willingness to blatantly lie about the gravest matters is limitless.

Ever since Edward Snowden received asylum from Russia in 2013, Obama officials have repeatedly maligned his motives and patriotism by citing his "choice” to take up residence there. It has long been clear that this narrative was a lie: Snowden, after meeting with journalists in Hong Kong, intended only to transit through Moscow and then Havana on his way to seek asylum in Latin America. He was purposely prevented from leaving Russia — trapped in the Moscow airport — by the very Obama officials who then cynically weaponized his presence there to imply he was a civil-liberties hypocrite for “choosing” to live in such a repressive country or, even worse, a Kremlin agent or Russian spy.

Massive government. All-encompassing, overweening, provide for every need, systems that mitigate every risk style of governance. Free universal healthcare and money for your retirement so you don’t have to worry about the “mundane” things – this is the promise of all collectivists and their variants – progressives, socialists, Marxists, communists, etc. Collectivists believe that democratic systems are just too inefficient and seek to create “planned” economies and social order through the creation of enforced “sameness” through creating large, conforming systems.
Supporters of these ideologies reference their belief that the role of government is to do the things that we cannot do for ourselves – except these days, that seems to be just about everything.
Attempts to centrally plan a national economy always end in disaster.
Yesterday, my Facebook feed was inundated with posts from Democrat politicians championing labor unions and lamenting the income gap in our country without ever getting a clue that Democrat policies tend to increase those gaps, and unions pour gas on the fire with the money they pour into Democrat coffers.
It is lost on them that Donald Trump showed the way to close that gap, one that can never be closed by redistribution of income. Trump did more for workers by doing nothing than any president since Reagan.
Democrats have always been fundamentally wrong about the American economy, constantly generating damage to the American worker - but as with pretty much everything, they never see their mistakes, they only see opportunities for more programs featuring handouts and more dependency - which only make conditions worse. Any uptick in the national economy is also seen as a signal to take even more taxes off the top.
Democrats will never learn that it is impossible for the federal government to buy people out of poverty. Trying to do so simply creates even more poverty by disincentivizing productivity (just as it is doing right now with the amped up "stimmy" checks).
Biden's economic plan is just like Obama's - It favors corporations and unions friendly to Democrats over the small business owners and independent contractors who are largely don't (contractors will disappear if the Democrat's get the PRO Act through the Senate). Biden's policies are holding back our economy because, in the minds of the Democrats, the worst thing that can happen for them is for the incomes of the "wrong" people to increase.
Biden, like his bestie, declared war on the energy sector and on border enforcement immediately upon inauguration.
Any positive economic news is largely in spite of Biden's policies, and any negative news is "unprecedented", "unexpected" or just somebody else's fault - just as it was during the Obama years.
But Biden has one thing Obama didn't have - the threat of Covid-19. This virus is a convenient tool to cover for bad economic news and has been used to 1) defeat a sitting president, 2) excuse bad economic policy and 3) distort the labor market by creating competition for labor between the federal government (that essentially has unlimited resources) and small businesses (who definitely have finite resources).
The Trump years, like the Reagan years, show what can happen when people are left alone to pursue their own interests - essentially shifting from a centrally planned system to a distributed one where both success and risk is minimized - but since those interests are not the interests of the Democrat Party, the Democrats will do everything in their power to reverse Trump's advances.
Free enterprise and democracy are both examples of distributed systems giving the same freedoms and benefits as the advances seen in networked computing. The risk of a single point of failure is eliminated by distributing the risk to the smallest individual units across the system. This allows the individual to take on as much risk as they are comfortable with, reap the greatest rewards and yet protect the security of the entire system by insulating the other members of the system from that risk (unless they decide to accept the same risks).
Set the workers free to work, stop competing with small businesses by paying people not to work, turn the energy sector back on and see how fast the economy recovers.

Davod,

You have to start thinking of Almostavax shots as a subscription service. One or two shots for 4-6 month coverage with renewal time periods as yet undetermined. Satisfaction is not guaranteed, there is a strict no refund policy and expected results pertain only to Alpha and possibly Delta but certainly not Mu.

Ivermectin

This is a compelling reading.
Also of note, there are claims from credible sources that there are more than 25 Randomized Controlled Studies (the best kind) showing Ivermectin is effective against Covid-19, but there is no MSM coverage of that.
