DEAR KAG: 20220218 – The Pub is OPEN / Movie Review: Death on the Nile (2022) / The Andromeda Shot

The Pub is OPEN!

I’m not sure what we’re serving today – maybe some leftovers!

You’ll see how I was led to this oldie but goodie in just a moment.

While our beloved REAL bartender takes a needed break of unknown duration, we continue to ENDEAVOR TO PERSEVERE.

And in doing so, we rely on excess Christmas spirit by dragging out Christmas a WEE BIT TOO LONG…..


Christmas Spirit

I was looking through the site images for Christmas.

When I saw THIS ONE…..

…..I remembered THIS ONE…..

…..and this one…..

…..as a kind of conflation of shipping containers being dropped by parachute.

But I found the original post they came from…..


A Note About Logistics

Otherwise Best Described as a Somewhat Strange but Beautiful and Heartfelt Message to the Staff of this Esteemed Company from the People in Logistics on Christmas Eve ON TIME AND UNDER BUDGET – THE TRUMP WAY First of all, Merry Christmas! (And belated Happy Hanukkah if I missed you back then!) Which is actually what …


…..which is a bit of a Ghost of Christmas Past…..

…..kinda like some other treasured site images…..

…..it brought back a lot of fond memories of the early site – a little over 3 years ago…..

…..and so I just wanted to say…..

(1) Merry Christmas, everybody,

(2) Happy Logistics, all you Truckers, Supply Chain Folks, and fellow working humans,

(3) And maybe Happy Logistics to you other working creatures, too. Winged or otherwise!

…..wherever you may be now!

And now, the rules of THIS PARTICULAR pub.


HOUSE RULES

God bless us, every one! Tiny Tim had such a beautiful soul. He hadn’t a mean bone in his body…unlike most of us. But in keeping with Christmas, we promise to honor Wolf’s rules and keep Scrooge at bay. The Utree is where the Ghost of Christmas Present will conduct you should you need to rattle some chains. Another option, should all hell break loose is here.

Now, back to business.


AMEN!

Free the January Brothers


Current Art On The Wall

This week’s shipment is allegedly CUBISM – to prove that we will put ANYTHING on the wall – even genres we generally don’t like much.

Let’s start of with one you can buy!

LINK: https://www.deviantart.com/amyinwonderlandofoz/art/Christmas-Morning-Cubism-129144935

Moving on….

Cubism and Christmas. A good idea? Or NOT A GOOD IDEA? You decide!

OK – let’s get more traditional!

And maybe even VERY traditional!

And speaking of music…..


What’s Playing on the Jukebox

Why, the soundtracks of the trailers in the next section! That’s what!

Here is the trailer song separated from the cinema. I actually find it a bit more enjoyable this way.


Movie Review: Death on the Nile (2022)

NOTE: This review may contain very mild “spoilers”. Stop reading if you run into something that seems spoilerish, if you don’t want any. I have tried to not give away anything significant in the story, beyond the trailers, but there may be a couple of close calls.

This is the movie that I’ll be talking about. This is the trailer you most likely saw.

However, if you got an early preview of it, you may have seen THIS early preview trailer, which has almost no dialog, but is really intriguing by relying only on visuals and music.

Here is yet another version with rearranged visuals – shorter and snappier. I like this one!

There is an IMDB trailer that’s very nice, too, but you have to go there to see it.

https://www.imdb.com/video/vi1514192409

Lastly, let me show you a “reaction mashup” – basically looks like a Zoom room – of a bunch of people commenting on the trailer as it plays.

OK – that’s enough. Now down to business.


I have not been to a movie in a while. I really avoid them if I can. I can spot the dirty hands of cultural Marxism in almost every movie Hollywood makes now. It’s tedious to watch their propaganda.

However, my wife likes these damned murder mysteries. Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie – you know the type.

The last one we saw was the horrifying “Knives Out” – enjoyable as a work of the genre, but excruciating in its political correctness. The vengeful, angry, projecting, communist psychology was all over it, ramping up to laughable levels at the end. Overtly racist, sexist, classist, and every other leftist prejudice-in-the-name-of-stomping-out-prejudice, all of the hard left’s biases were gleefully woven into both plot and acting. I was rolling my eyes, chuckling, and smirking at the “dramatic” parts at the end. I honestly felt sorry for the “woman of color heroine” at the ideologically “uplifting” end.

Why must the solution to all human idiocy be “deuce axe machinist” by liberals? So they get to be GODS? Using a hammer and sickle on every microscopic problem?

Ugh.

I thought I was done with Hollywood’s corrupting of the “murder mystery” genre, but no – my DW had different ideas.

This one – Death on the Nile (2022) – succeeds mostly by DISTRACTING from the political correctness. It does so with a combination of compelling plotting, amazing scenery, skillful acting, and strong attempts to “go beyond” blatant leftist narratives by underplaying them competently yet powerfully into the story itself. This approach allows the leftist audience to see what THEY want to see, while trading “in-your-face” PC for a kind of non-gratuitous, historically correct PC that makes sense as part of the story.

Still, the PC is not removed completely, and on long reflection, one feels abused by the requisite embedding of political correctness.

For example, while every one of these “usual suspects” is woven skillfully into the plot, they’re still all there:

  • interracial romance in the face of 1930’s history
  • “probably racist” white parent forbidding true love
  • old black woman sage
  • young black woman muse
  • bad male gun, bad white gun, good black female gun
  • wicked white waspy couple (and they’re cultural appropriators, too!)
  • lesbians forced into the closet by paternalistic society
  • aspirational capitalist bourgeoisie without morality, tsk, tsk
  • limousine communist donor class heroine
  • classic white male hero submits to struggle session and self-criticism
  • imperialist “woman of color” in denial of roots pays for her transgression
  • Christian symbols hypocritical, non-Christian symbols meritorious
  • decadent cabaret culture showcased yet subjected to moral apology RE appropriation
  • many smaller bits of reflex Hollywood-think

Now – with all that said – these things were made almost completely non-gratuitous by a kind of honest incorporation into the plot, albeit without historically accurate dialog, and RARELY addressing them directly. This leaves an intriguing blend of truth – historical and emotional – in the wrong language, suitable for the modern ear. Actually, Hollywood does this almost ALWAYS, but because I now avoid their work product for months to years at a time, it’s painfully apparent to me.

Thus, the movie creates a skillful blend of political tensions with the NORMAL tensions of a murder mystery. This is a great trick – a kind of cross-talk to influence audiences EMOTIONALLY but not overtly.

The didn’t forget the SEX, either. Lots of STEAMY sexually charged scenes, too, but not much skin. As the Daily Mail put it (and this is one of their longer titles):

Full steam ahead for sex, greed and murder: To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s first book (and our first glimpse of Poirot), Nicole Lampert goes behind the scenes on Kenneth Branagh’s VERY racy new film version of Death On The Nile

This is skilled propaganda – and in my opinion it is forced on the story by the requirement that the writing get past “The Black List”. This thing ticks off all the requisite boxes on racial and end-wave feminist cultural Marxism. It also passes muster with the Satanist crowd, IMO, by virtue of the Egyptian setting and their “death cult” stuff.

NEVER FORGET WHAT THEY DID – and by that, I mean what they DID TO US.

SPOILER – graphic photo of Las Vegas carnage below the Luxor obelisk, pyramid, and sphinx.

Yup. This production clearly “green-lighted” by the Luciferians in charge.

Now that I’ve gotten the POLITICAL and the CULTURAL and the RELIGIOUS payload stuff out of the way, what about this movie in normal ways? Is it any good?


I think it was really well-done, and that is what elevates the vehicle above the payload.

Let’s start with one of the reasons I was happy to go see the movie.

Russell Brand is not prominent – not as much as I would have liked – but he’s really, really good. He uses his LACK OF LINES to forcefully project a kind of disturbing, anxious, quiet tension and hidden emotion that brings all sorts of suspicion to his character. I won’t tell you where that goes, but it’s good. When he does speak, he does it quite well, and it contributes to the intensely emotional nature of the film. I have much respect for him as an actor now, even though he was clearly playing one of the “butler-level” parts.

This also speaks to extremely competent direction, of course.

Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer are both excellent, carrying that essential combination of “suspicious as hell” and “wouldn’t hurt a fly” which makes for a good whodunit. Hammer is particularly good at the latter. Gadot manages to pull off dozens of wildly different looks throughout the film, which is damn near a fashion piece. Hammer is just stylish. But is he bad? Not gonna spill the beans here!

You might think Gadot would be the hottie of the movie, but if you go by what is gonna make men hot under the collar, that would be the performance by this gal, Emma Mackey.

Both ladies do some scorching dance moves with Armie Hammer, but Mackey’s were enough to raise my blood pressure into the red zone. She’s also quite excellent in her part – the definitely neurotic, probably psychotic, and quite possibly crazy as a bedbug, jilted ex of the guy, and “former” BFF of the girl.

Complicated business.

This gal has “she did it” painted all over her. But did she? No way. Can’t be. But yet…..

Good acting. Dancing. Whatever!

The movie is banned in Kuwait over Gal Gadot’s Israeli military background, but I have to say – if they were looking for other reasons, this movie has plenty.

Speaking of which…..

These ladies provide some mild comic relief – I was unaware that they’re actually a comedy duo – Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French. What’s interesting here is that they mix in some straight-up politics, and actually poke fun at some of the leftist kind. I’m not going to go into much more detail than that.

OK – I will say one thing. The film actually borrows one of Donald Trump’s best one-liners, and re-uses it in a new context. I kid you not. Most people won’t catch it, but those who are deeply familiar with Trump’s 2016 campaign trail will get a nice laugh. It’s good fun.

Annette Bening and Tom Bateman turn in solid performances as the rich old lady and her goofy mama’s-boy son, the latter who seems far too light in the loafers to be falling for……

Sorry. That might be TMI.

Many of the twists of the movie revolve around the above pair. If you do see this movie…..

EYES ON.

NEXT – the accountant.

The Gadot character’s accountant cousin, played by Ali Fazal, is definitely suspicious as hell. Like all accountants, it would seem, he has a “security plan”, and I have to say, I prefer Suspicious Cousin’s over Emma Mackey’s.

Speaking of security, check out that Tiffany necklace on Gal Gadot. It’s part of the plot.

OK – now who are we missing?

  • Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot
  • Tom Bateman as Bouc
  • Annette Bening as Euphemia Bouc
  • Russell Brand as Dr. Windlesham
  • Ali Fazal as Andrew Katchadourian
  • Dawn French as Mrs. Bowers
  • Gal Gadot as Linnet Ridgeway-Doyle
  • Armie Hammer as Simon Doyle
  • Rose Leslie as Louise Bourget
  • Emma Mackey as Jacqueline de Bellefort
  • Sophie Okonedo as Salome Otterbourne
  • Jennifer Saunders as Marie Van Schuyler
  • Letitia Wright as Rosalie Otterbourne
  • Ann Turkel as Meredith Wilson

OK – let’s start with the Otterbournes. They’re actually key characters, around which much of the story takes place. There’s the old lady singer / performer, played by Sophie Okonedo…..

…..and then there is her “young kin manager”, played by Letitia Wright.

These two are in the thick of things, and there are many surprises based on their presence. Obviously these two gals are leaned on heavily for the PC messaging, but in spite of it all, they manage to come off as credible, non-cardboard, and interesting characters. In my opinion, if the screenplay would have pulled some of the “crypto-political” dialogue, and replaced it with solid character development, such as making Wright’s character more of a fully developed romantic counterpart to Mackey’s, the whole movie would have benefited.

Fans of “security devices”, shall we say, are gonna love several scenes with these gals, but I won’t spoil the fun.

Speaking of security, always keep your eye on the butler – especially if she has a hankering for BFD (Big Effin’ Diamonds). This is Rose Leslie, who really pulls off the look of a domestic.

Suspicious Cat really thought this broad was GUILTY. Was he right? NOT SAYIN’.

So who’s left on our list? Two names – one of which appears to have been edited out, or is there by mistake. And that leaves ONLY ONE.

Kenneth Branagh. This guy simply can’t be bad. As ALWAYS, he does a great job here, both as an actor and a director, giving some real depth to the character of Hercule Poirot. That’s some of the most redeeming stuff in the movie, so it’s all you’re getting.


OH! And one last, cute point.

Apparently Hollywood had “issues” releasing the movie because of “scandals” that are guaranteed to make your eyes roll.

How ‘Death on the Nile’ became ‘every publicist’s worst nightmare’

LINK: https://nypost.com/2022/02/10/why-death-on-the-nile-is-every-publicists-worst-nightmare/

Yes. Hollywood was SKEERED because four of the “talent” got into social media trouble.

From the top…..

First. In Hollyweird, it’s OK to *BE* a cannibal, but don’t get caught loudly pretending you’re one – especially after pissing off a string of important women. Armie Hammer (yes, he’s related to the original commie) apparently likes some pretty kinky play sex, and his exes have loose lips. But is he a real cannibal, or just a loud-mouthed drunk and a loser? Your call…..

LINK: https://pagesix.com/2021/01/16/inside-armie-hammers-life-fueled-by-alcohol-bdsm-infidelity/

But WAIT – there ARE things worse than that. Like making a “tone-deaf” and “cringeworthy” “COVID survivor” video based on the John Lennon “Imagine” lyrics, that got tomatoes from hipsters and Branch Covidians.

WARNING!!! MAXIMUM CRINGE!!!

Please, Gal! Always check with your local communist cadres to make sure that speech is appropriate BEFORE you speak!

But there are things that are even worse than poor correct-think…..

Like WRONG-THINK!

Like retweeting anything mildly skeptical of the COVID vaccine narrative. Or worse still, actually TALKING to vaccine skeptics. OH, NOES!

LINK: https://pagesix.com/2020/12/07/letitia-wright-deletes-twitter-after-sharing-anti-vaccine-video/

LINK: https://www.thedailybeast.com/comedian-russell-brand-has-become-a-powerful-voice-for-anti-vaxxers

So yeah. They had to wait until NOW, when apparently the SMOKE CLEARED.


SO – should you go see this movie?

Not my call. Hopefully I’ve told you what you need to know.

Movies are not reality. They’re stories. They’re emotional manipulation. Sometimes they’re political manipulation, too. I’m not actually sure if I’m a better or worse person for having watched this movie. But I felt like I needed to make a RECORD of the experience. Hopefully that record can be put to good use by others.

If you do go, ENJOY THE SHOW. I think you might.


The Andromeda Shot

Thanks to barkerjim, Gail Combs, and Chris, who all got me onto the scent with this one.


Let’s start with “The Andromeda Clot”. This story began when a professional embalmer spoke out on behalf of his profession, stating that once the jabs started, he and other embalmers started seeing long, white, fibrous clots – stringy like plastic – in the veins of deceased victims of heart attacks and strokes.

LINK: https://rumble.com/vtcsgw-worldwide-exclusive-embalmers-find-veins-and-arteries-filled-with-never-bef.html

Steve Kirsch has been all over this story, and has found more embalmers who will go on the record with their observations.

LINK: https://stevekirsch.substack.com/p/cary-watkins-confirms-embalmer-richard

Hat Tip: https://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/02/15/cary-watkins-confirms-embalmer-richard-hirschmans-story-about-the-telltale-blood-clots/

Kirsch interviewed a WITNESS to the embalmer above – a fellow embalmer who saw some of the original clots and their removal, verifying that account.

LINK: https://rumble.com/vuycmg-embalmer-with-50-years-of-experience-verifies-hirschmans-story.html

The story just gets bigger and more shocking from there, as Steve dug in.

Steve interviews a very talkative and inquisitive lady embalmer, speaking on behalf of herself and two embalmer friends. These three embalmers have all seen the clots, and ALL of them independently came to hypothesize that these clots are caused by the COVID vaccines.

If you don’t have time for the video (it’s over an hour), you can read this post by Steve for the highlights.

LINK: https://stevekirsch.substack.com/p/exclusive-embalmer-reveals-93-of

The lady herself found these clots in 28 of her last 30 cases. Basically 93%.

LINK: https://rumble.com/vuqk1w-explosive-embalmer-reveals-93-of-cases-have-deadly-clots-caused-by-the-vax.html

This interview is FILLED with excellent information about the clots, including this lady’s opinion that (1) there is no way these clots are from post-mortem coagulation, and (2) that the clots seem more prominent in the elderly, and may be exacerbated by immobility and stasis.

Some of the blockbuster “hidden gems” in this interview are “scoops” about what doctors are doing behind the scenes. One is use of ivermectin “on the down low” at the local hospital, which is in a very conservative area. Another is that doctors who are encountering clots in clinical practice, are asking about vaccination status as a possible cause of the clots.

You can’t stop the signal, because the signal is TRUTH.

In my opinion, these clots are so damning, it is MONSTROUS that science is not talking about this phenomenon yet.

Worse still, that FACT CHECKERS are denying it.

Is medicine really that derelict in its duty, that UNDERTAKERS are now the source of SCIENCE?

In my opinion, the media in support of WEF leaders and WEF narratives is how we got here.

Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and their ILK are why America is looking a lot like the Soviet Union lately, following close behind Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

The censorship is very real here, and it starts at the top.

ARTICLE: Psaki says administration is working with Facebook to limit misinformation

ARCHIVE: https://archive.fo/mrFqU


Cuppa Covfefe had the same reaction as I did – that this sounds like the disease in Michael Crichton’s fictional book “Andromeda Strain“, the virus of which turned people’s blood into a rubbery powder.

Gail was thinking that this white fibrous stuff sounds like fibrin, and indeed, there is evidence that spike protein binds to fibrinogen, leading to the inappropriate formation of fibrin.

Here are some references about dysfunctional coagulation from both COVID-19 and spike protein, including vaccines.

References:

SARS-CoV-2 spike protein induces abnormal inflammatory blood clots neutralized by fibrin immunotherapy

SARS-CoV-2 binds platelet ACE2 to enhance thrombosis in COVID-19

Fibrin immunotherapy may resolve blood clotting induced by SARS-CoV-2

Study suggests people with COVID-19 exhibit increased risks and 12-month burdens of incident cardiovascular diseases

I can go on and on, finding papers which demonstrate coagulopathy due to either COVID-19 or the spike protein, but almost nobody in the science world DARES to link any of it to the spike protein vaccines, despite the obvious morbidity, mortality, and pathology of vaccinees – something which is apparent to all intellectually honest people.

For example, the first study cited above is featured in this explanatory blog post:

SARS-COV-2 SPIKE PROTEIN CAUSES NOVEL INFLAMMATORY BLOOD CLOTTING

Which includes the following statement:

A vicious circle. Coagulation is not merely a result of inflammation, it causes inflammation also, a process driven by the presence of the spike protein alone and its peculiar interaction with fibrinogen and fibrin.

Now here’s the kicker. If the SARS-CoV-2 virus with its uniquely pathogenic spike protein is a bioweapon, then so also must be the ‘vaccines’, which cause the cells in our bodies to manufacture SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins in their trillions, and it has been demonstrated conclusively that these spikes find their way into the vascular system and circulate to every organ in the body, even the brainGo figure, as they say.

That last paragraph is not hyperbole. In contradiction to all the toadie journalist “fact-checkers”, REAL SCIENTISTS who have dared to point toward the obvious spike protein culprit have now had their suspicions confirmed.

Here is the blog post explainer:

CELL PREPRINT STUDY REVEALS CATASTROPHIC LEVELS OF SPIKE PROTEIN IN VACCINATED

Here is Robert Malone’s substack explainer:

A Health Public Policy Nightmare: Vaccine spike antigen and mRNA persist for two months in lymph node germinal centers…

Here is the original paper in Cell:

Immune imprinting, breadth of variant recognition, and germinal center response in human SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination

To quote Malone in summary about spike levels:

Read that again: Protein production of spike is higher than those of severely ill COVID-19 patients!

And to quote the paper he’s talking about:

We find that BNT162b2 vaccination produces IgG responses to spike and RBD at concentrations as  high as those of severely ill COVID-19 patients and follows a similar time course.

This is not hard. Think about it.

  • disease produces spike protein mostly in respiratory tract and lungs
  • severely ill COVID-19 cases produce more spike, more disseminated
  • Pfizer vaccine produces same amount of spike as severe disease
  • but vaccine produces spike in highly vascularized muscle tissue
  • patients are encouraged to move deltoid muscle to increase perfusion
  • Pfizer data (Japan) proves vaccine disseminates throughout body
  • data proves long half-life of vaccine before release of pseudo-mRNA
  • other studies show vaccine migrates to lymph nodes
  • spike-producing pseudo-mRNA likely has unnaturally long lifetime
  • spike is produced for 60+ days in lymph nodes
  • vaccine moves through circulatory system via lipid nanoparticles
  • spike moves from lymph nodes through circulatory system via exosomes
  • exosomes both contain spike and express it on surface
  • exposed spike binds to fibrinogen and initiates fibrin formation and clotting
  • circulatory vaccine spike should cause MORE clotting than does disease

It is NO WONDER that the vaccine earned the nickname “clot shot”.

My bottom line is this:

We cannot stand by while these MONSTERS abort living children slowly with these vaccines.

Remember the wife of familial eugenicist Bill Gates JUNIOR?

It’s very useful to understand BILL GATES SENIOR to get a better feel for the whole clan. The man was not just a eugenicist, but a FABIAN as well.

ARCHIVE: https://archive.fo/iqYM4

The other side is getting very desperate to “commit population reduction”, and to do it “by any means necessary”. And to do it – as we have seen – the SNEAKIER, the better.

In my opinion, we have to get LOUD in voice and EFFECTIVE in practice, in spreading the word about the HORROR of the Andromeda shot.

Forcing kids to take these injections is horrifying.

ACT ACCORDINGLY.

We have to support the truckers.
We have to end the mandates.
We have to end this insane regime.

I believe that making the Bidenistas and Bidenazis EAT THE CLOT SHOT is an important part of how to do that.

ENJOY THE SHOW.

With all due respect to Kenneth Branagh’s Director chops, David Suchet owns the character.

cthulhu

Branagh is a top-notch actor, but Poirot is only a one-off for him. Suchet got to climb into the character and fully embrace his neuroses.

In some ways, Suchet’s Poirot is the Pierson’s Puppeteer of Poirot presentations.

cthulhu

Dr. Who is supposed to regenerate, so quirks are “baked into” the character. Now imagine Hercule Poirot going through a regeneration on the deck of the Karnak…..

cthulhu

David Tennant and Matt Smith had their moments — but there are many where the less said, the better.

Gail Combs

Just ran across this. I thought you would get a kick out of it. (3 minutes)

Cuppa Covfefe

Prime doesn’t pay 🙂

One of the HP3000’s competitors back in the day, along with Wang, Perkin-Elmer, Data General, DEC, and the mini (43XX, etc.) lines of IBM… The 3K outlasted almost all of them… but their commercials weren’t anywhere near as good 🙂

(Especially “you can say that again” and she does…. great ads! )….

Gail Combs

“…Wang, Perkin-Elmer, Data General, DEC…”

Brings back memories. I lived in the Boston area and had friends working at all of them Hewlett-Packard as well

Cuppa Covfefe

And then there was Apollo… HP bought Apollo, told the engineers they could relocate (or else), I think to Ft. Collins (language labs there). SUN got wind of that, offered HUGE bonuses, better bennies, and higher salaries to the engineers, who almost all took the offer.

And SUN was just across the parking lot, so no moving or change in commute was necessary…

That mistake was never repeated. I heard that there was some high-level “kicking” that went on… this was in the days Before Carly. Otherwise such a move would have been welcomed, from the top down…

cthulhu

After that fiasco (and others), Silicon Valley tech employers formed a cartel.

Cuppa Covfefe

Have you read “Soul Of A New Machine,” by Tracy Kidder?

It’s a non-fiction book that reads like Krimi or adventure novel. Covering the design, creation, manufacturing, and marketing of the Data General MV8000 (and 10000), DG’s response to the DEC Vax, it describes the heady days of the Route 128 tech hub, and their competitors at the Research Triangle in North Carolina. Hero of the book is Tom West, an almost mythical character in some regards, but fascinating, in a McGyver sort of way as he manages the project through all manner of corporate minefields and other hazards, even a few of their own making… Kidder won a Pulitzer Prize for the book (it’s inspiring, so I’ve read it a number of times to “recharge” when I’m fed up with the computer world).

Kidder also wrote “House”, a similar book about building a custom house in New England, and the trials and tribulations thereof. Both books have analyses and other study material that they’ve inspired…

[Trivia… I was in a G&S pit orchesta at a rehearsal and I was mentioning Tom West and the book… an older woman, violinist, came over and said “oh, my daughter is Tom’s girlfriend”… brainlock… I might have been able to find out more, or maybe even meet him… sigh… then again, I don’t remember if he was still married at the time 😮 ]…

Gail Combs

I heard all about it as it was happening. My caving buddies mostly worked in the computer field except for the one guy @ Raytheon.

I dated several of them. 😋

Cuppa Covfefe

Are they in the book? 😀 (no need to name names 🙂 )…. I think you’d find it interesting in any case…

Kidder is a weaver of stories and dreams, and makes even mundane things interesting. Same could be said of his book “House”. I think both are online, and the first one is available as a pdf online for free (or almost)…

Valerie Curren

Oh the tales you could tell!!! 😉

Cuppa Covfefe

He regenerated as (Anti-)Christian Drosten, Merde-Kuh’s Kommie Kovid Klot-Shot PrettyBoy…

And, as far as the “innocent” insertion of PC into the remake, that’s typical of Satan (and Hellywood). He puts just enough truth or good in things to fool people into thinking it’s real or good, when, in point of fact, it’s fools gold which incurs an eternal debt to be paid in HELL…

There aren’t any straight white couples in ads over here at all. Mixed, gay, trans, you-name-it. Black Lies Matter, White Ain’t Right, and “Queen For A Day, if not longer”… Add that to the freak show that Bye, Dung is assembling for his handlers (now we know where all the oddballs from Ringling Brothers/B&B went after they closed down) and you get a very focused effort to kill off normalcy and the normal, average family, no matter what race. The only taboos left are polyamory and necrophilia, and the former is being hinted at by the greens, the latter, who knows… maybe Denmark, Sweden, or Holland will try it first. Bestiality was tried for a while in Denmark, with special “hotels” where the “animalphiles” could pursue their passions in private…

As it was in the days of Noah… I just hope and pray that enough people see this and ACT ON IT in order to stop it. Before it stops us…

Knives out 2 is on the way. Also the dungeons and dragonsvfilms are being rebooted. 1st one to come out next year.

Knives out was loved by hollywierd and i just saw it a month ago. Gratuitous pc!

Happy Friday to you, too! How are you doing?

Gail Combs

Thanks Wolfie for putting together all the facts.

I sure wish those embalmers would get some of that clot material to a good lab for analysis.

Gail Combs

GOOD!
I figured once the embalmers verified and validated their evidence, the Front Line Doctors and others would take it from there.

Gail Combs

Don’t forget the the Nattokinase!
https://www.theqtree.com/2022/02/06/nattokinase-for-covid-and-clot-shot-high-blood-pressure-just-do-it/

Nattokinase is an effective anticoagulant

CHANGHUA, TAIWAN. An ischemic stroke is caused by a blood clot or plaque fragment obstructing the flow of blood through the small arteries in the brain. A heart attack (myocardial infarction) is caused by a blood clot or plaque fragment obstructing the flow of blood through the small arteries feeding the heart. Venous thromboembolism, also known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), is caused by a blood clot forming in the veins, most often in the lower legs.

Thus, inhibiting blood clot (thrombus) formation is of primary importance in the prevention of all the above conditions. The drug warfarin (Coumadin) is the most commonly used anticoagulant and works by inhibiting the activation of the vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors V, VII and X in the extrinsic and common pathways of the coagulation cascade. The level of other important coagulation promoters, such as fibrinogen and factor VIII, are not affected by warfarin.

Nattokinase, an extract from fermented soybeans (natto), is also known to inhibit blood clot formation (thrombosis), but does so by dissolving already formed fibrin-rich clots and by inactivating plasminogen activator inhibitor-1. Now researchers at the Changhua Christian Hospital in Taiwan report that nattokinase also inhibits the synthesis of fibrinogen and coagulation factors VII and VIII. Elevated fibrinogen levels are associated with increased blood viscosity and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). There is also evidence that elevated levels of factors VII and VIII are associated with atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease….

If you are on anticoagulants like Warfarin it would be a problem.

Cuppa Covfefe

Wouldn’t Warfarin, Heparin, even Aspirin and “milder” anticoagulants be helpful similarly to nattokinase? Or is there more than just anti-coagulation going on… I’m just wondering if people on these “blood thinners” may have some resistance to the effects of the clot-shot (while they’re fighting whatever other problems they have)…

Criminal that they’re pushing the clot shots to those who don’t need it at all, as well as those who will be hurt the most by it….. Fabian dream, no doubt, but a nightmare for the rest of us….

Gail Combs

From what I read they help but Nattokinase targets the fibrin.

Nattokinase enzyme supplement, benefit, side effects, safety, dosage, clinical uses
Information on nattokinase supplement and its interactions with blood thinners such as Coumadin, Plavix, and aspirin
August 17 2019 by Ray Sahelian, M.D.

A lot of questions and answers including this:

Mechanisms of action

Nattokinase inactivates plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 and potentiates fibrinolytic activity. In other words, it could dissolve fibrin. Fibrin is a protein involved in the clotting of blood that is polymerised to form a “mesh” that forms a hemostatic plug or clot (in conjunction with platelets). Fibrin is made from fibrinogen, a soluble plasma glycoprotein synthesized by the liver. Nattokinase prevents aggregation of red blood cells.

Lab Anim Res. Dec 2013. Nattokinase improves blood flow by inhibiting platelet aggregation and thrombus formation. The effects of nattokinase on the in vitro platelet aggregation and in vivo thrombosis were investigated in comparison with aspirin.

Rabbit platelet-rich plasma was incubated with nattokinase and aggregation inducers collagen and thrombin, and the platelet aggregation rate was analyzed. Nattokinase significantly inhibited both the collagen- and thrombin-induced platelet aggregations. Nattokinase also reduced thromboxane B2 formation from collagen-activated platelets in a concentration-dependent manner.

Rats were orally administered with nattokinase for 1 week, and their carotid arteries were exposed. Arterial thrombosis was induced by applying 35% FeCl3-soaked filter paper for 10 min, and the blood flow was monitored with a laser Doppler probe. Nattokinase delayed the FeCl3-induced arterial occlusion in a dose-dependent manner, doubling the occlusion time at 160 mg/kg. In addition, a high dose (500 mg/kg) of nattokinase fully prevented the occlusion, as achieved with aspirin (30 mg/kg). The results indicate that nattokinase extracted from fermented soybean inhibit platelet aggregation by blocking thromboxane formation, and thereby delay thrombosis following oxidative arterial wall injury. Therefore, it is suggested that nattokinase could be a good candidate without adverse effects for the improvement of blood flow….

Linda

I’ve only been taking it about 6 days and I’m already shocked that it has definitely brought my blood pressure down. Before taking it, I was reading in the 130’s and high 120’s for systolic and 70s to 80s for diastolic. Now I’m pretty consistently in the 110s for systolic and 60s for diastolic. I’m getting close to the 110/60 that I feel the best at. I hope it’s also cleaning up the spike protein mess that COVID probably left me with.

Yes, I’m very grateful to Aubergine and Gail for talking about it.

I’m somewhat worried about the dark side of the inhibition of fibrin and coagulation. Then, again, natto is a health food in Japan, so shouldn’t be too toxic.

Unlike, say, fugu….

Aubergine

I tend to be on the side of things in a natural diet not having terrible side effects. It’s possible, of course, but generally food products are not harmful unless a person has a specific allergy.

It’s when people do stuff like ingest “essential oils,” which are super-concentrated components of herbs and plants, that problems arise.

I wanted to add this here so it is all in one place.

First the American Greatness Article:
Funeral Directors and Embalmers Alarmed By Weird, Freakishly Large Blood Clots Clogging Veins in Vaccinated Bodies
And the picture of the washed off substance found in the blood vessels of the deceased:

“…Hirschman washed off the white, fibrous portions of the clots from one person, and put the worm-like materials in a bowl...” (Looks like polymer aka plastic to me.)

comment image

….

I would hazard a Wild Ass Guess that maybe it has to do with ‘out of control triggering’ of fibrin. You know something like a whole bunch of SPIKE proteins lining your blood vessels?

Blood clot formation
Overview

Blood clotting normally occurs when there is damage to a blood vessel. Platelets immediately begin to adhere to the cut edges of the vessel and release chemicals to attract even more platelets. A platelet plug is formed, and the external bleeding stops.

Next, small molecules, called clotting factors, cause strands of blood-borne materials, called fibrin, to stick together and seal the inside of the wound. Eventually, the cut blood vessel heals and the blood clot dissolves after a few days….

comment image

SO looking up FIBRIN….

This is selling a product but has some interesting information.
Fibrin: The Sticky Protein Behind Joint Pain and Inflammation

The sticky clumps covering the red blood cells pictured above is called fibrin. It’s your body’s first response to injury and pain.

Fibrin itself is not bad, unless it gets out of control.

Fibrin dictates how healthy and flexible every part of your body stays as you age. Lingering pain, loss of flexibility, and chronic inflammation can all be traced back to out of control fibrin levels.

Not that you’ll hear much about fibrin from most pharmaceutical companies…

Over time, the fibrin molecules thicken and stiffen, forming scar tissue masses that can block blood vessels, interfere with muscle function, and lead to chronic inflammation….

comment image

And then to the scientific paper NIH of course.
Fibrin Formation, Structure and Properties

Fibrin clots with longitudinally aligned fibrin fibers could serve as a scaffold for longitudinal axonal regrowth in cases of traumatic peripheral nerve injuries (Gessmann et al. 2016). Fibrin sealants formed by mixing fibrinogen and thrombin are widely used to stop bleeding (Corral et al. 2016).

Abstract

Fibrinogen and fibrin are essential for hemostasis and are major factors in thrombosis, wound healing, and several other biological functions and pathological conditions. The X-ray crystallographic structure of major parts of fibrin(ogen), together with computational reconstructions of missing portions and numerous biochemical and biophysical studies, have provided a wealth of data to interpret molecular mechanisms of fibrin formation, its organization, and properties.

On cleavage of fibrinopeptides by thrombin, fibrinogen is converted to fibrin monomers, which interact via knobs exposed by fibrinopeptide removal in the central region, with holes always exposed at the ends of the molecules. The resulting half-staggered, double-stranded oligomers lengthen into protofibrils, which aggregate laterally to make fibers, which then branch to yield a three-dimensional network. Much is now known about the structural origins of clot mechanical properties, including changes in fiber orientation, stretching and buckling, and forced unfolding of molecular domains. Studies of congenital fibrinogen variants and post-translational modifications have increased our understanding of the structure and functions of fibrin(ogen). The fibrinolytic system, with the zymogen plasminogen binding to fibrin together with tissue-type plasminogen activator to promote activation to the active proteolytic enzyme, plasmin, results in digestion of fibrin at specific lysine residues. In spite of a great increase in our knowledge of all these interconnected processes, much about the molecular mechanisms of the biological functions of fibrin(ogen) remains unknown, including some basic aspects of clotting, fibrinolysis, and molecular origins of fibrin mechanical properties. Even less is known concerning more complex (patho)physiological implications of fibrinogen and fibrin.

.

.

.

……Of special note for fibrous proteins, old observations of the α-helix to β-sheet transition upon stretching of fibrin have been confirmed and a functional spring-like role for the α-helical coiled-coil structure has been discovered…..

HMMMMmmm “monomers forming double-stranded oligomers”….. Darned if that doesn’t sound like a POLYMER/PLASTIC! AND with stretch characteristics.

Monomers and Polymers in Chemistry

A monomer is a type of molecule that has the ability to chemically bond with other molecules in a long chain; a polymer is a chain of an unspecified number of monomers. Essentially, monomers are the building blocks of polymers, which are more complex type of molecules. Monomers—repeating molecular units—are connected into polymers by covalent bonds….comment image

^^^ Rarely, if ever, has someone said this, let alone follow up.

One would think THIS IS a critical to unravel the 3 November STOLEN ELECTION.

Aubergine

I think this was planned in advance. The plot was to stop counting at a certain time, or at a certain amount of “lead” by Trump. No phone call to trace or email to find. We have to look EARLIER than election night for a confluence of the right people to have done it. When were they all given their “orders?”

Aubergine

True, I think.

GA/FL

I think you are right… it was a nasty plot – and the early call by none other than FOX News was a huge blow. Then the courts and congress were also uninterested in the checking out the data. The military was also part of the scheme. Pence was the last straw.

Yes, Pence broke this camel’s back. Traitorous prick.

In Connie Willis’s 1995 short novel. She predicted that old movies would all be bought up and new movies would be rare. The old movies would also disappear and the new versions would then be changed to suit certain PC dictates. Airbrushing out the parts (props from the original, like cigarettes) of certain scenes and even characters. ie substituting the new star of the old movie or even yourself into the movie, putting a product into the a movie scene that wasn’t used. making the movie more PC.

While Connie Willis will remain one of my favorite writers, I will not read anything new from her since she applauded the taking down of the Robert E. Lee statue. This after featuring him very well in her novel “Lincoln Dreams” after which her book got bad reviews for speaking well of Lee. Shortly after she fell to the PC establishment and allowed herself to become one of the earlier victims of shaming. I stopped reading her after her 2016 Novel “Cross Talk” which which was good, Shortly after she made her comments on Lee and the thing is she knows better but decided to bow the PC crowd so she could continue to get the awards.

Anyway, this led me to adopting the following policy with these people who moderate to the left. Once the transgression is noted, I won’t bother with anything new from them, and will think heavily if I wish to partake of some thing older before they tainted themselves.

Notes after looking through her bio she actually did a short novelette on called “Death on the Nile”

There is something to this. Apparently, a number of older films have been stashed in the vaults in Hollywood, and are no longer rented out to independent theaters for special occasions. It’s like the history that is being airbrushed out of existence. We’re supposed to be generic humans, not nationalists.

I think that’s also why they tried to get all books (at least childrens’ books) printed before 1985 taken off of library shelves, and off the market.

Even though the ban never went into full effect, a great number of classics were removed from schools and libraries and destroyed, all because of lead.
Interesting that it was floating through Congress around that time that Øbløwhøle and Hell-the-BEAST were circling the election trough…

Never mind the fact that a child would have to EAT a book in order to consume anything near to a harmful amount of lead; the face-diapers are dropping IQs by around 20 points, it’s said… and the left couldn’t care less…. more DEMONRAT voters in the making, I guess…..

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.

AMEN.

The author misses that Ratzinger realized they were making a huge mistake at Vatican II. The loss of Transcendence is the important part. And I believe that was set in motion a couple decades earlier just based on some of the Church buildings around here from that era. The older ones are much more beautiful and were constructed with strict attention to Canon Law.

Yearned for? Or merely predicted?

Did George Orwell yearn for the society he described in 1984 or did he merely predict it? (In fact it was a warning about what could happen not quite a “this will happen”.)

True. Was trying to draw a parallel with the tweet (or whatever it was, I’m in the notifier) claiming Ratzinger yearned for the crap Bergoglio is doing, rather than merely expecting it.

Cuppa Covfefe

Ratzinger is far, far more conservative that he’s being painted (Uni Tübingen, for instance, considered him to be “too conservative”, and they’re [OK they were] quite conservative themselves…). My son (until “Stuttgart 21″ made it impossible) was studying Theology at Uni Tübingen, and had professors who either knew Ratizinger when he was there, or had themselves mentors/professors who did. And the consensus was that he was very conservative and a strong Christian. Have to wonder why shade is being thrown at Ratzinger now… maybe Francis, the Talking Fool” (or his handlers) is doing damage control?

Seeing that something unpleasant or incorrect is coming doesn’t mean that one is endorsing it or in favor of it…

If anything, Ratzinger was pushed aside by Satan Sauros’s crew against his will, and probably under duress… just look at all the other damage that Sauros has wrought…

I have an idea I want to spread around, I think.

We may be about to have our own trucker convoy in the U.S. Since the whole GiveSendGo hack, I’m sure I’m not the only one who is hesitant about donating.

I had an idea, though. If the trucker convoy starts, and people are lining the roads like they did in Canada and would want to donate to them, they could just buy a pre-paid card with however much they want to donate and hand it to an individual trucker. The trucker can spend it on anything they need, or pass it on to another trucker if they want.

Thoughts?

Deplorable Patriot

I like this better than going to a site and putting in a credit card number.

Gail Combs

My method of donating to the poor/panhandler has always been to give them FOOD (and drink). You can tell if they are for real by how fast they chow down.

I trust the truckers more than pan handlers so the prepaid card idea is good.

kalbokalbs

IF I were to donate again, a prepaid card, handed DIRECTLY to a trucker.

BURNED twice. WINRED AND GIVESENDGO. Will NOT be BURNED a THIRD TIME.

Likely, I’ll never see the trucker convoy.

Realistically, I see little good coming of the US trucker convoy. At best, awareness.

  • DC SWAMP DOES NOT CARE.
  • IF DC gets shut down, NO BODY CARES.
  • ZERO IMPACT on the problem. Mandates, censorship, run away PC spending…

But, YES, prepaid cards, the ONLY sure way to support truckers.

Aubergine

I think a GENERAL STRIKE is really the only way to get their attention at this point.

kalbokalbs

Yup.

Gail Combs

WORLD WIDE!

Aubergine

I agree.

singingsoul1

I could not agree more. The DOJ set the stage already and they will infiltrate sabotage the truckers from the beginning. I would not trust anyone because past proves future. Would not surprise me if the FBI is already embedded in the truck convoy.
Even in Canada I feel there were informants. One could see how selectively police picked up people. The authorities seem to know who donated large amount of money connected to Trump?
Do not be surprised if Canada has been working with US.
Something is very wrong.

No, you weren’t, and most (if not all save for one) of us know that.

Seems that the police at the Canberra protest in AUS went a bit overboard.

Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Policing have confirmed the use of a Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD)—often regarded as a sonic weapon—at the massive protest against vaccine mandates in Canberra on Feb. 12, despite the Australian Federal Police (AFP) commissioner describing the crowd as “well behaved.”

Notes that seeing one of those set up at peaceful protest is apt to end the peaceful part.

It IS a matter of time until Aussie’s TURN ON LE.

People can only be pushed so far.

So assuming all of the evidence is correct, of which we are quite certain, then clotting is the primary issue with the jabs. It is also a major issue of the disease itself. I understand there are a myriad of other issues as well. It appears that the primary, immediate concern is that it is generating fibrin in sufficient amounts to genocidally injure and kill people.

Other than Nattokinase, what other natural sources are available for reducing it in our systems Many people are allergic to soy based products – like my wife. She is the same person who displayed the white fibrin she coughed up from her lungs over a decade ago when the swine flu was at epidemic stage. Respiratory issues are her major health concern.

I appreciate any recommendations.

It is now clear that the CB has been working on depopulating the planet via pandemic means for quite some time now. I guess wars and cultural genocide was not getting it done quickly enough to suit them.

I doubt it’s a matter of wars and cultural genocide being inadequate, so they had to depopulate to achieve their goals.

They work together and are both necessary. Depopulation by itself is indiscriminate; it leaves you with fewer people but they still have the culture “they” don’t like.

Seems indiscriminate until you get caught. Hope they are ready for a new culture with pay back on their mind. This extends to the parents that went out and got their kids vaxxx’d

I think they’re targeting certain populations, experimenting on all of us to see which malady kills which group.

First SARS, then MERS, the COVID (SARS-2). Asians, then Middle-Easterners, then “Westerners” (and who-knows-who-all)… Shades of Dr. Loveless on “Wild, Wild, West”…

Since “no nukes is good nukes” is pretty much the order of the day, the only way to prune down the populace to the preferred 500 million is a global (Gore-Bull?) pandemic, possibly prolonged by permanent periodic booster shots…

Bromelain is a pretty powerful clot-busting supplement. My quercetin supplement from NOW includes it:

Here is a reference for the bromelain for clots:

Pineapple & Papaya
The acidic fruits like Pineapple and Papaya are effective clot busters. An active enzyme bromelain present in the fruits not only digests the insoluble excess protein in the blood but also reduces cholesterol levels and reduces the soreness, joint pain and inflammation caused due to excess fibrin. Since bromelain includes fibrin’s natural enemy plasmin, the intake of this enzyme prevents platelets from adhering to each other as the Prothrombin cannot be converted to thrombin in the absence of fibrin protein.”
