Never Forget! Watch folks from Jordan Peterson to current “whistleblowers” get all worked up pushing the vaxxine clot shots and ripping into those that value bodily autonomy. How much we've already forgotten! Disgusting

Anyone that caught a cold starting March 2020 was scared witless. Why? Because the Media made them that way.

Funny. Our daughter had the flu a month earlier. Fever, congestion, the works. We called her off school and the calm voice said , we hope she feels better soon.

One month later that voice would’ve been a lot different. Why? Because the Media put a worm into everyone’s frontal lobes including Jordan Peterson’s.

If you had any respiratory ailment no matter the severity you ran to get a PCR test. Why? Because the Media told you it could diagnose Covid.

But all it could really tell you is if your nasopharynx had some Covid molecules in it. The test didn’t know if they were making you sick or if you’d become sick later. Nor did it determine if you’d make anyone else sick. Some people that tested positive weren’t sick at all. But, quarantine them all like lepers! Contact tracing anyone?

Furthermore, since PCR was never used in such a way before there was no historical data to indicate if Covid had been floating around before 2020. Nobody knows. Yet this junk was the gold standard for diagnosis around the world.

Is it any wonder where flu and pneumonia went? Is it that hard to figure out? 2x4 meet forehead, stat.

Everything so obvious. Yet, fear is the great obfuscator. Still is. I never knew humans were such sad little fraidy cats.

But masks, useless as they are. Damaging as they are, were ubiquitous. Lemmings in lockstep. I just cannot believe it. Must zap your forehead with an IR thermometer and check your vaccination card or no admittance. No ticky no washy. Sorry.

It angers me that literally everyone bought the con. Yes. I said con. As in confidence job. As in they got suckered. They were the mark. They saw nothing. They got taken in. And they will again. Because the litmus test indicated they are perpetual fools. Loved ones died alone? Couldn’t be helped. Better luck next time.

Fools ran to the hospital to get euthanized via iatrogenic protocols. Why? Because the Media said they were diseased by a virus so deadly it only killed mostly geriatrics with multiple comorbidities. Be afraid. Remdesivir will save you. If it doesn’t melt your kidneys first.

Look around. Society is lost on so many different fronts I’ve lost track. I used to think Substack might make a difference. But what a mess. A train wreck of opinions that won’t budge the needle a fraction. Nobody’s listening. Nobody cares. They just want to be taken care of by anyone that will have them.

So I’m just going to sit back have a beer and laugh at the end of the world as we knew it. I refuse to feel unfine.

I look back on all of the research I did on treating “COVID” in 2020 and came away with some things that probably need to be in every medicine cabinet for the rest of this life.

Zinc & zinc ionophore

Ivermectin

Nebulizer

Colloidal silver

Aspirin

Antibiotics

Vitamin D & C

NAC

If I get fragged by a respiratory clone, I feel like I got this. Definitely won’t find me in a hospital.

By the way, does anybody know how to treat Ebola and Marburgh?

Yes. I heard tell that ebola can be effectively treated by only two doses of Fenbenzadole.

Whatever anyone wishes to call the “thing” PCR is looking for, Kary Mullis pointed out that PCR will find it. The point that should be at the forefront of the discussion is, irrespective of whatever PCR is primed to find it cannot confirm that’s what’s making you sick, nor if it’ll make you sick later, or if it’ll make others sick, or if there’s any historical relevance to the finding. Therefore it is an incompetent diagnostic tool and should never have been used as the gold standard for diagnosis. The concept that PCR is a perfectly reasonable diagnostic tool used as the on-ramp to quarantines and hospital covid protocols needs a stake driven through its heart. But we’re too busy focusing on other stuff and missing the big picture.

No free pass, ever, otherwise you might believe a politician.

Dr. Peterson has done two publicly useful things:

1) exposed the corruption in the Canadian regulatory college system;

2) possibly potentially woken some people from belief in the "Narrative."

Most people cannot claim at least one publicly useful achievement, but still, no free pass.

Actually, his wife Tammy was diagnosed with terminal cancer and his doctor put him on benzos, but he has a peculiar metabolism, and had a terrible physiological reaction trying to get off of them, seizures if I remember, but could not get the treatment he needed in Canada or the states, so went to Estonia? Eastern Europe anyway and was put in a coma as you say, caught covid while there, almost died. Tammy recently converted to, I think, Catholicism, after getting much spiritual help, prayers, and surviving a cancer that, like glioblastoma, is invariably (almost) terminal.

I concur with your thesis regarding Epstein's primary mission. Would be good to drill down into his Harvard brain trust connections, which include Pinker. Also, if memory serves, there was talk of genetic experiments being conducted on his New Mexico property. Finally, I will check to see how many individuals you identify as IDW members are, or were, members of edge.org. Thanks for your work!

Expand full comment

Some folks 'genetic experiments' is other folks 'necromancy in action.' Eppy's Zorro Ranch was constructed in a manner frighteningly parallel to the short story of H P Lovecraft 'The Case of Charles Dexter War' - wherein extensive underground 'facilities' including 'laboratories' and temples alternate with other levels where groaning of pain seep through to the ears of the not yet disincarnated victims.

Charming allusions to Eppy's obvious deviltry as "scientific philanthropy' aside, Epstein was clearing working on a level of evil that even the most hardened among us would not easily accommodate. He made Mengele and Ewen Cameron look like milquetoasts. That said, Lovecraft himself might be better understood himself as a "journalist," in the style of EA Poe, who alternated the roles of 'reporter' and horror fiction' narrator in a manner truly prescient - and befitting to - the 'post reality' circumstances which we now find ourselves "living" in.

ps - the Ranch finally sold, last August. Can't wait to meet the new "owners!"

Sad smile. It is my understanding that the Zorro site was chosen, in part, because it offered access to a hard to trace population of indigenous children. They went in, but they didn't come out. Think the same thing was going on with brown children, e.g. Haitian refugees who were transported to Eppy's Island. Doc workers saw boats of these kids leave, never to return. Agree that comparisons to Mengele and Cameron are inadequate.

I don't know yet that I have a coherent picture of IDW since I pay attention to so few of the persons mention here but this article reminded me of several odd intersections of people in some things I've read recently.

First, the self-immolation guy wrote substack posts mostly about how crypto is a ponzi scam. However, he had many other interesting tidbits. One was that Bill Barr's father Donald Barr, an ex-oss guy, hired Epstein to teach math at a presigious prep school. Epstein was a 21 year old college dropout. Obviously, that is suspicious. Donald Barr also wrote sci-fi about a slave world which had some violent military unit he called "Ukrainian Idealists" appearing in an heroic role!

Next, in Programmed to Kill, the US attorney that declined to prosecute in the Presidio cases involving Aquino was Rudy Giuliani. That makes me wonder about the spectacularly absurd press conference in front of a garage door when they booked the wrong location 'by mistake' during the follow up to the 2020 elections. Was that an attempt to discredit challenges to the fraudulent election by making the challengers seem absurd? Certainly there was a lot of effort in that direction going around at the time.

Another Fox News personality that showed up in that book was Greta van Susteren, in which she appears briefly as the defense attorney for a mortician linked to a DC call-boy service who got off with a light sentence. Play ball and move up in the world!

I guess the idea of controlled opposition was what called these tidbits to mind.

That was an entertaining read. A sort of dim sum of running people down. I never grow tired of this for the likes of "Woo Dog," Claire Lehmann, Steven Pinker (like him but indeed he likes to talk down to his fellow humans), and Žižek. When watching Žižek, I feel like at any moment Peter Sellers (from an alternate universe) will take off the makeup and let us know it was all an act just to bang hot chicks. Alas, Michael Shermer gets scant attention despite his glorious bad Covid mRNA injection take. And I realize he doesn't necessarily fit in the IDW universe, but if you could draw a line out to Lawrence Krauss somewhere (perhaps on an inset diagram to adjust for scale), that would be great.

Many years ago someone asked me what I thought of Zizek, so I randomly watched a youtube video of his. It was a lecture where he claimed some greek's theory, when inverted, left 'something missing.' He just kept going over and repeating this while a bunch of women in the audience nodded and affirmed everything. He was literally just saying that there was the masculine and then when inverted there were women, who have 'something missing' and they were just nodding along to it because he was considered such a celebrity. So I find it quite amusing that you say it was all just an act to bang hot chics. I never bothered to read or watch anything of his after.

Peeps like Zizzy followed in the slipstream of Foucault - a guy who would 'run in terror' FROM 'hot chics.' The hotties are not gettin 'chilled' by the pansexualists of the western world, and thus we go from "4th wave feminism" directly to NXVIM - where college educated professional women and famous actresses agree to let the initials of their 'owners' (Claire Bronfman & Keith Raniere)be CARVED into their genitals!

Mind control? We don't need no stinkin mind control.

I "get" this take, but I still see Žižek in it for the traditional seduction angle. Like Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, or better yet, like the lore about Carl Sagan. Sagan had a reputation for seducing co-eds at Cornell. But when you look for any of that "lore" on the internet, there is nothing.

This is one of the problems with "woke" grammar.

I can't understand who was the carver and who was the carvee, let alone the relationships implied.

Did Allison own Claire, or was it the Maharishi (my sister went to some of his shows in the early 1970's) , or maybe some other performer I don't recognise?

lol - depending on the degree of your curiosity, the best place to look for answering your own questions would be FRANK PARLATO'S site - the FRANK REPORT I believe it to be called - which is still going after 'all these years' since the BIG CARVE.

If your preference be for synopsis/opinion I'll give it a go...

the "Carver" was actually a 'doctor' (who belongs now to the "MFM" -believe it or not for that revealing tidbit!), operating on instruction from Keith/Allisoin who- as correctly pointed out above - were the 'power couple' making the top down decisions for the cult.

The symbiotic relationship which saw Claire enter the picture(Frank once worked for her)is a story in itself...

but suffice to say that plain looking/mostly mentally endowed heiress Claire saw her inherited billions as a tool to extract revenge upon the waspy wymmen whose search for meaning(of the wombless kind)made them prey to the nastiest of nasties!

As far as outside 'influencers' are concerned... the party you are looking for would be 'the dalai lama' - Tibet's answer to Mikey Jackson. - and the entire package of esotericism labelled 'tantra.' which serves as the explicit vehicle by which males of dubious integrity graft themselves into the lives of uber-naive western chics looking for a daddy to orgasm them into 'full enlightenment' via regular installments of the check book.

Frank has the specifics on that hook up too.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that they are able to present anti-war stances and relatively independent viewpoints while their work is consumed by the masses, and I don't expect to agree with everyone always, but I get the feeling that they are controlled opposition at times (not for nothing, Tucker's dad was US intelligence.. CIA, I think; and the CIA is like the mafia. Once you're in, you're in for life and it is very common for that legacy to continue through subsequent generations).

Hi Mathew.

Just a short note to let you know that after a skim, and a nod of recognition and agreement with many of the people you mentioned, I had a hiccup when you mentioned Daniel Schmachtenberger.

After seeing, repeatedly his interview by Liv Boeree about Moloch as metaphor for modern society, I was impressed with the depth, speed, and wisdom he showed in asking the right questions. Only with your post here did I check out his homepage, and I still find him leagues ahead of the likes of Jordan Peterson, Steven "Dr. Pangloss" Pinker, and others you mentioned. It will take me time to follow up on that Rockefeller connection.

But out of curiosity, I just followed up on the link to Sugar Baby University, and found it compelling enough for a post all its own ... if nothing else, to summarize the structural and generational roots of how the university system has devolved, and comparing the "is" with the "should be" of human nature.

During the interview, I found lots of side roads worth exploring on their own. Kimberly De La Cruz ended the interview by briefly explaining that at age 16, her 18 year old sister had died of brain cancer, and both the emotional and financial stress on her family and plans for college. If I had a daughter, I would cringe at the thought of depending on Sugar Baby U. as an option, but not having stepped in KimberIy's shoes, I am loathe to pass judgement.

The remainder of your post is condensed with so much information and juicy links to follow, I will have to pass for now ... otherwise I would spend my remaining years with "Read a Lot of Mathew Crawford" as my epitaph. If it is of any consolation, I am trimming my information overload by cutting a lot of substack subscriptions. Yours is one that I will hold on to.

There's a straight line from the time of Hefner/Guccionne to the SDU - though I've not seen any journalistic takes on that, it's hard to miss the 'progression' from the necessarily inferred sexual services rackets which the 60s were replete with, to the full on concubinage/massive ego-destruction that is the now 'liberated' fourth wave version of same.

Slowly... gradually... then suddenly, young women with neither mentor nor grounding get pulled into the worst form of self-abnegation, the consequences of which will usually never even occur to them, as they watch their child-bearing years slide by in an orgy of 'female entrepreneurship' fatally marketed as 'the smart girls road to power & influence.'

After years of being put out by the inverted time zones which leave me always at the wrong end of the day for reading\responding to posts or comments coming from the wester world, getting a response from somewhere actually AHEAD of my tz is a welcome pleasure!

Your piece on 'I dated a Japanese......' is one on my list of "longed for but forbidden" reads. Not just lacking the 'means' to support this model of communication, I'm not sure I even support it's premise - information as commodity ALWAYS dictates that those already wealthy (in the purely monetary sense)will be the real beneficiaries of the project. The manifestation of that principle in the form of that STRIPE entity is for me proof enough.

That said, I have absolutely no quarrel with those who choose to use the paid device. After all, "free choice" is, or should be what it's all about!

A random thought on "female status in large populations since the dawn of civilization" .... although the 'Geisha Girl' is the very iconic image of the submissive/submerged female persona (at least in the west)somehow I get the feeling that the parties occupying that position in japanese society -even now - are significantly higher up the ladder than wester womyn, in self esteem and social approbation(at grassroots, not media levels at any rate.)

Hi LMS,

Ah ... that dating a Japanese woman thingy must have been in a long comment to one of Mathew Crawford's posts. Yeah, once you get past the language barrier, there is nothing particularly forbidden or exotic about women in Japan (unless one is lucky — or unlucky — to fall in love with 'the one'). Once married, they pretty much rule the house, and you are right ... Geishas are entertainers living in a rarified world of high caste. The stuff of movies.

Strange that WW would dodge you. I would have thought she would have loved to pick your brain regarding Epstein... or maybe she didn't want to get sussed out? I used to read some of her stuff but nothing struck me as interesting and her writing can be tedious/poorly written and in desperate need of an editor (eg, Epstein Vol 1 & 2 are over 1,400 pages. Good luck trudging thru that.)

But what really made me lose interest was when she moved to Mexico in 2020 to shack up with a satanist who had pentagrams, occult numerology, and bizarre Luciferian references on his Twitter. I strongly suspect she’s involved in Wicca/witchcraft along with Ryan Cristian and Derrick Broze (New Ager) at The Last American Vagabond. Her publisher Trineday is owned by an occultist/Luciferian? who is the son of an OSS, G2, and later CIA branch chief. He has a Kabbalist on his staff SK Bain along with Orthobro and occult obsessed Jay Dyer. (I suspect the whole Orthobro movement is a psyop as well and his wife was making YT videos in 2019 on how to cast spells and enchantments.)

Btw what are your religious beliefs? Were you ever initiated into masonry?

The WW trajectory is not an uncommon one. You may be right about her (later)writing - I stopped reading it - but there was some stellar stuff earlier on. I particularly remember something she did on "Patagonia" and an arch sionist mogul name of "Joe Lewis" - a Soros protege who applied rigorous kabbalist principles to the task of defrauding Argentinians out of their own heritage. Hard to see it as a 'limited hangout' or "mossad operation."

But the deal is this - promising, yet uncompromised journalists stir the ire/interest of the puppetmasters, who profile em and figure out just what program will work to bully/blackmail/entice them into the net of 'turned' journos who are 're-trained' and then set back out into the 'wild' to use their previously earned cred as bait to inveigle the unwary.

Would you consider the limited mind as a factor turning each and everyone into a limited hangout under the right conditions?

What I mean by that is that once indisputable facts - X is member of z - are moulded by the mind into a "coherent" story the mind gets lost in complexity if it tries to keep track of all loose ends, as it can only cope with the complexity of REALITY by simplifying it into a always false narrative.

Which doesn't mean that all information wrapped into the narrative is false but they are comingled with assumptions/half-truths/lies ... turning it into an ivory tower/maze of biblical proportions.

If the money they get from CHD is large that would give CHD influence. If their positions changed suddenly after they started getting paid by CHD that would be a red flag but they have been very consistent over the years.

Webb did mentioned RFK, Jr.'s connection to Epstein. The Vedmore thing is a

he said she said mess.

I think you'd be surprised to learn Epstein's financial connections. It's a depraved network. I was going to say web. 😁

What has she exposed? Yes, she and her assistants collate huge and tedious amounts of information, and sometimes that helps one see the bigger picture, but there was so much thick detail in those two books that I don't know if you could make that argument. And specifically, what has she ever said that is new?

She documented in detail the gangsterism interconnecting various segments of the national security state with other factions of the ruling class and how it's all being used to establish a worldwide totalitarian biosecurity surveillance state.

"And I now regard the plandemonium as having begun with the mortgage bond crisis—call it 2007."

Hi Matthew, that's pretty much how I see it too. For us in the UK, our prosperity started to decline in 2005 when energy per capita topped out over here. The US seemed to start a little earlier with the decline beginning in 2004. This in turn led to the mortgage fiasco in 2007 (rising oil prices and interest rates - with oil topping out in 2008).

I wrote internally to the engineering consultancy I worked with at the time as well as the UK government. No one seemed interested. I also gave a presentation to an INCOSE Energy Working Group about "Battery Earth" and how civilisations went through configuration states based upon energy type. Again, there was little interest. But I suspect someone with significantly more influence than myself was paying attention and planning accordingly. I'm happy to share my slides if it's of interest.

All the best,

Luke

Tried four times under different search engines to see your Rumble video on Epstein connection to plandemonium. After the ads, it won't run.

Is Professor Hamamoto on your radar? Seems like I have no choice for another subscription because he, as you, does his homework. Trump's last name isn't really Trump? Malone as the others is there to fill that damn vacuum? He has a great deal of respect for the Kennedy family and RFK Jr. as do I. His organisation is massive but he's not blind to who may infiltrate it. There may really be ex cult operators that are genuinely removed from the cult but how would one know? The divine universe always provides the signals.

I have seen a few of his videos, but don't know all that much about him.

I love his phrase "empty signifiers." Shallowness in language that when questioned even on the lowest level would fall apart. But he gets far more interesting than that I assure you. It's all about distancing the people from having any say, choice, power. AI is the hilarious hope of these horrors as the ultimate distance from accountability.

Wonderful post. Thank you!

The entire IDW collapsed when Eric Weinstein made a massive ass of himself onstage. He went into hiding not long after that.

Nah. There is a good discussion that can be had about E8 and automata models of physics. That's not to say that I have a dog in the fight and I personally think Eric basically ganled Garret Lisi's work to LARP with. And now he is hiding behind an immature non debate while the world burns.

I think that Sam Harris's multiple hissy fits also contributed to the IDW's alleged demise.
